Affecting the Dream Matrix


No matter what your current believe system or level of mastery, I think we can all agree that everything about the current cultural matrix is disintegrating and reforming all around us. Those who can must focus attention on the nurturing of this newly born planetary consciousness if the infant is to survive at all. Out of the protective womb, it is now most vulnerable to the harsh realties into which it has been born. It is much more than just saving the whales or even rescuing the various increasing dead zones we have created for ourselves through our glut and ignorance. We must go "all in" if we are to survive as a species. We have to save OURSELVES!

Yes, the very existence of the human species depends upon this new sensibility. There are signs that a new (yet ancient) way of thinking and being is seeping in, however gradually. Movies like Avatar affected millions and millions of people globally with a powerful message, yet at the very same time the Corporatacity was allowing the worst oil spill in history to widened the already huge dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico and kill out countless amounts of fowl and sea life, including wiping out a significant Sperm Whale birthing grounds. 

Yes, there was a multitude of protest voices raising up with prayer/meditation groups focusing attention on the spill. And yes, it may indeed have expedited the 'supposed' clean-up of the mess because of the sheer magnitude of the media maelstrom. But, then the President showed the nation it was safe to go back into the Gulf by swimming with his own family and thus justifying the lifting of the drilling moratorium so that we could all pretend to return to business as usual. Nothing has changed! Or, has it?

That's where those like us come in. The revolution WILL NOT BE TELEVISED! And the movement will not be trivialized by Whale Wars, The Cove, Flipper, Seaworld, Rick O'Barry or anything else.
That's because the WHOLE THING is being generated from the inside out. Think about this. Each of us is but a fractal sliver of holographic information that contributes to the manifestation of the greater whole. Most people do not acknowledge this and so are subject to the will of others. The POWER is that as each sliver becomes self-realized and thus changes, so to the whole matrix also changes. 

Now is the time to crystallize that inner part of ourself that "knows" beyond all doubt and reason what YOU need to do right NOW to be in your TRUTH. This is a life long quest, make no mistake. It begins and ends with each conscious breath you take. From your first to your last... You cannot affect the Dream/Matrix until you become the dream itself.  
Just remember to use your Heart/Mind filter to find the LOVE and trust your instincts that the UNIVERSE is playing fair.

SO BE IT and SO IT IS.

Be Well and Swim Free,
Love & Aloha,

Our metaphysical universe turns out to be the perfect reflection of the physical one where basic mathematic principles apply to both, but in different conceptual measure. So indeed, the keys have been known throughout history but only used by the few with the courage or audacity to pass through those storied doors of perception. That balance of attention is changing as we speak, however.

There is an inkling that this Gnostic awareness is already a part of our DNA coding and that these 23 strands that define human existence are being reactivated after untold millennia of dormancy. The high-performance vehicles, vessels and instruments that are the human body are once again becoming self aware and the programmed illusion that fosters limitations through fear and ignorance can no longer disguise our true identities as Sovereign Entities.

As such we may exercise our Choice to Change.

Engaging the Dreamtime



I once described the Dreamtime experience as the opening of one’s “I’s”. That is to say engaging the Imagination, Intuition, and Intellect to obtain a unique in-sight as to the line that separates what are appearances vs. what is reality. Of course the seasoned psychonaut seeks to experience this directly with the I's wide open, either by a disciplined technique or stimulated by psychoactive intoxication. Sometimes both are combined to stare into the void from which the world emerges. 

All three informational energy streams seem to converge for processing at the nexus point inside the brain called the Pineal Gland. When one's imagination intersects with our intuition and intellect to activate the pineal gland's dream-eye wakefulness, the Dreamtime experience may commence like an opening portal into the ‘hidden place’.

The ancients discovered and wrote about this ‘Dream Eye’ which contains similar rods and cones to our external eyeballs. Bioelectric impulses excite the pineal ‘iris’ that sends indwelling light waves that stimulate the visions emerging from our ‘mind’s eye’ as fantastical, but often meaningful, even revelatory imagery. This process is apparently enabled while we sleep through the natural excretion from this gland of melatonin and notably, DMT, in addition to other chemicals. Stanley Kramer called it the “God’s Eye” in his book, Crossing the Threshold to Hyperspace. Even before modern science uncovered such things, ancient texts and traditions acknowledged the pineal in symbol and ritual, including the Catholic Church.

The Pineal still represents a rather mysterious aspect of human brain anatomy and seems to play a much more important role in transcendental awareness than previously credited or understood by modern medicine. 


The movie Avatar portrays a spectacular graphic representation of a sacred Ayahuasca journey into the dream world - that hidden land or Bardo realm that lies beyond the waking senses. Those who have experienced the effects of ingesting the sacred ceremonial tea will easily recognize the source material used ingeniously by James Cameron to insert a powerful cultural programming meme into planetary consciousness at this time. Global audiences are given a 3D fantasy ride that introduces a native Amazonian mindset and perspective that provides a glimpse into that indigenous sensibility of feeling the total connectivity with the Gaian/Earth Mother soul of the land. 

The story also mirrors the isolation tank experiments done by Dr. John Lilly in the 50s and 60s in an attempt to establish a threshold for communicating with an alien intelligence (in his case, Cetaceans). His ideas were fifty years ahead of their time as mainstream thought is only just now ready to start to comprehend what he was trying to explain.

Such an understanding inevitably defines itself by what we each can bring to it. So in this way, a conscious dream experience becomes very much like being a piece of Art that auto-renders the mystery of those reflected imaginal, Wonderlands that surface from our subconscious recollection of the experiential world around us. 

 

By examining this aspect of what could be termed our awareness assembly, the occult meanings open to the inevitable conclusion that there is indeed, far less separation between the so-called real world, and the dream realms. We are selectively beginning to realize that by engaging our conscious attention and intention we can thus shape shift both our dreams and conscious reality in a simliar manner. Some describe it in terms of the shift to a Second Assembly Point. Just how we come to terms with this phenomenon of human consciousness may well determine the future of our species on this planet.

Perhaps we may all share a common memory of the dream world that we are just recalling how to access as do the Aboriginal tribes of Australia with their Songlines. Put another way, it’s like the psychedelic sensation of moving beyond the linear word-symbols that both describe and enslave the waking world. Centuries of Tibetan meditative practices that map the imaginal territories for exploration seem to verify this as well. Perhaps this purer form of 'tonal' communication emerges from the residue of our core being’s awareness that we are simply holographic aspects of a larger, familiar 'dream-body' consciousness. These are but a few aspects of the emerging sensibility contributing to an acutely awakened state in this time of enhanced frequencies. Those of us standing on the edge of the cultural matrix are afforded a somewhat detached and therefore objective vantage point. As always, the choice remains with each of us as to what to do with this next strata of information that further dissolves the boundary separating what is dreamed and what is real.

Ultimately though trying to connect all the dots can only weigh down this process of shifting perspective from the territorial to Planetary and eventually all the way to a Galactic Consciousness. These days it's more important to simply BE while holding the energy of positive change at the core self. 

Knowledge of this core self is the ultimate key and indulgence for me as it perpetually unfolds its fractality of awareness to my Infinite Mind.

Everything & Nothing




It could be said that the zero point mentality has everything and nothing manifesting simultaneously as implied by the Yin/Yang symbol. For me, it is also like the aperture of a camera, where all aspects of light merge into dark to 'take a snapshot,' as it were, of the felt presence of that moment of being. Then like a photographic slice of memory, we examine the 2D relic of Reality to form 'flat' conclusions. That, to me, is where so-called Western Philosophy hits the ceiling. Science, on the other hand, can only measure Reality infinitely, pretending to draw temporal conclusions from the Nothingness. Both disciplines are based upon argument, logic and mechanical reasoning that have had reigning control these past few thousand years. So in my life, the interesting stuff has always been in the third aspect of that sacred triad: Art. I've managed to derive some level of "truth" through the sincere appreciation of "beauty."

Traditionally Fine Art has been allowed to exist within our society even though it often does not play by the rules laid down by Science and Philosophy. Right? In some ways an "artistic license" in this regard becomes like a passport to regions of freedom not afforded the common man. But, as with all dramatic mythologies, such gifts are both a blessing and a curse. And so, the Artist’s Path is fraught with ambiguity that compels the spirit as it torments the soul.

Ripples in the Field of Consciousness



It’s been described as a kind of Field of Consciousness that weaves through all essence of being. Of course I personally contend that its fluid state is more natural to us as physical beings. That it can be spoken of and written about so openly without prejudice in modern society marks a new level of awakening in the world today, in my opinion. Perhaps you also perceive this sense of awareness that slowly distills itself from our collective consomm√© of seven billion souls - each struggling for some degree of self awareness. This conscious batch of molecules appears now to be rising to a boiling point of perturbation by my reckoning. We are moving beyond the limited constructs of societal programming that by their very nature inevitably lead only to entanglement. Things are really getting interesting as we let go of the mess. Don’t you think?

There are many percolating signs of the time for anyone who chooses to look in the media. Certainly one of the most obvious is box office champ, Avatar, the wonderfully engineered cinematic spectacle designed to simulate a full-fledged Amazonian Shamanic Ayahuasca Journey of Enlightenment Trip to hundreds of millions of viewers globally. This film injects a specific cultural programming on a global scale, unlike anything that’s come before; it’s intensely powerful and virally infectious as a meme generator. Suddenly, the mythic notion of a more sinuous way of coexistence is portrayed to the mainstream cultures instantly on a planetary scale - transcribed as a universal language of light and sound. This wave of exalted energy sweeping the world is but one observable ripple of change, albeit a dynamic one, in this second decade of the third millennium of temporal awareness.

At the other end of the human spectrum we have another dynamic wave of change affecting the collective emotion with a seismic jolt: the tragedy on Haiti. This extreme frequency modulation further demonstrates the sheer power of the much heralded Earth Changes that are upon us. Consensus Reality is shifting before our eyes and appears to be headed towards some concrescence of inevitability hurling faster and faster at what McKenna called the “transcendental object at the end of time.” Is it the runaway train as he presupposed? Is it the Eschaton? Nobody knows for sure he assured us. But something is happening here and perhaps you can only NOT know what it is.

That’s because the totality of it is unknowable as a human construct. It only hints of itself as a frame of reference outside the limits of any linear language to describe it. It dangles like an ornament of inexplicable beauty luring our attention. Whether it is some kind of object pulling us towards some event horizon, that’s where all the focus is shifting. We are as a culture in the middle of birthing all new operating codes - new belief systems, to accommodate another level of recognizable truth that goes beyond conventional wisdom. Explorers, psychonauts and cultural programmers are quickly developing new formatting standards for navigation in this wide open sea of awareness. Some early maps have been drawn and others are following blazed trails to higher frequency ranges as another plateau emerges within our integral and sovereign self. A new playing field emerges. It’s made of the stuff of dreams.

The first thing one sorts out in this evolving paradigm is how the so called, 3D world, is NOT the be all and end all we’d been lead to believe it is. Scientists, for example, have recently stated that our empirically provable knowledge as to the nature of the universe is only around 6%. That leaves a whopping 94% of the substance of existence indefinable by the current technologies supporting our paradigmatic thinking. I know, much of it is written off as dark matter that they would have us believe has little bearing on our existence. Sort of like all the junk DNA we are told serves no function in our physical body. Perhaps we are seeing a common thread here? We are groping around in ignorance! But from this pure darkness springs pure light if one could simply shift our gaze to an aesthetic perspective.

There is in fact this new level of enlightenment now available to those of us who’ve learned the art of releasing our ego (belief systems) into this metaphoric river of liberation that flows with a gentle force of gratitude towards an infinite sea. Floating free, those hard shackles of shame, guilt and consequence, easily dissolve as love and forgiveness from within becomes like natural buoyancy. This new level of ecstatic freedom inexorably becomes its own transforming agent.

It is with such a resolve in our hearts that we move that much closer to a profound truth that is at the core of our being. That subjective truth is our personal sense of a connectedness to the divine presence of All There Is; that inexplicable state of awareness that can best be described as a spiritual experience. Once we grasp it, even if for a microsecond on the galactic clock, we can anchor that sensation of centrality. But more importantly, we can greet each moment with a new level of balance and integrity. This in turn expands understanding of this dance of dualisms to an even finer degree and perspective.

I suppose such a keen perception might only exist in a state of sublime balance. It must surely also require a degree of discipline and devotion to develop a sensibility both outside of the self and at the same time is intrinsically a part of our very nature. This force may be the only way to describe the evolving phenomenon of our personal interaction with such a Field of Consciousness.

This is by no means new information, for the field has existed since the beginning and represents an aspect of awareness that permeates all the dimensional realms of existence. The realization of this is now available to a larger percentage of individuals than ever before. Technology has enabled us to construct multidimensional virtual realities as cogent models of how the phenomenon looks and feels and more and more of us are starting to ‘get it’; to dream awake.

Soon we might be able to say we even know 7% of the physical universe.
