On Exploration

Yes, we Angels love to explore! Thats another innate characteristic of the Angels that we humans really are. Maybe, finally, this would explain to all those hopelessly addicted to the exploration bug, that it is in your nature as a being (not chemical heredity) to explore. Left to each of you and every human that you know, you can probably pick at least a couple of things, if not more, that they would have loved to explore at one time or another. Nature, Art, Painting, Music, Hunting, Golf, or just about anything that sparks that innate nature to go out there, and experience it, learn it, perhaps even master and teach it.

The nature of angels to explore also answers the broader question, the existential question of “Why Am I really here?”. This question isn’t solved or served much by finding purpose or significance, which is like a cat trying to find its own tail. In fact the question isn’t meant to solve anything, for it isn’t a puzzle to be solved. The urge to explore anything, subjective or objective or even an abstract, merely is a nature of an angelic being. It simply is. There is nothing there to conclude or to summarize. It just is there to be felt as a nature of the being. Angelic beings like all humans, will always, always have this. For it does not come from heriditary lineage, but from the Angelic lineage. what appears in this physical dimension then, is only a translation of a quality that already is present. Only this time, it is within the context of physical reality. Of the 3 dimensions.

And so explore without boundaries, for there will always be this excitement within you, to explore any and everything. It is beautiful. It will surely bring a lightness of being, a more fulfilling experience of living in physical reality itself. Without any meaning. Without any conclusion. Just for sheer joy of being a born explorer that you are!

New Food for a New Day

Let us finally breathe and accept our innate nature as humans, to desire constant change in our everyday lives. Makes it far more simple and easy to accept doesn’t it? Its like the change of breakfast, lunch and dinner we need each day. Would love to have change of that every single time. Well yes, some we would love to repeat. our favourites. But change is the quintessential part of being human itself. It is exhibited right from the time we were kids. Change. Change. Change. Same is boring. Angels are this way. Angelic beings are always in for adventure and constant change and excitement. That is a true sign that we are not cows or sheep, or anything like the animal kingdom, that can have the same grass with the same unquenching relish, for breakfast, lunch and dinner each day, for generations on end and there is simply nothing they every complain or one fine day just sit there and not eat anything at all, simply because they are bored!

It maybe change in any and every direction and dimension we can possibly conceive of. It is the staple of angels for a change in clothes, places, people, partners, diet, music, type of living, ideas, inventions, whats nice and not nice, whats good and bad, whats evil and whats not etc. The change has to be there. Generations of humans come and go. Civilizations will come and go. But with each step of a generation, the collective of human angels, will change. something. anything. but change is a common element. The only thing that perhaps changes, is the concepts of what to change within the context of what is socially acceptable by the human civilization at a given time and culture.

So let us celebrate this human angelic trait. New food for a new day. The freshness of life that the angels claim as their birthright. And bring an ever expanding awareness and new light, where there was none before!

The Crutch of Significance and Purpose

Its one thing to just live life and quite another, to live it through the eyes of peers and society. Starting from our mums and dads to every other grown up that you faced since you were a little kid, everyone has told you to do things, in order to gain acceptance, to “be someone”, to have a purpose and direction in life. Although the intent of those kinds of advise were in good faith and did give direction to walk into, there comes a time, and I am presuming it has for you also, either in the past or now, that you are faced with something similar. A situation, where one has to actually, and energetically leave all that you learnt behind and charter your own little path-and find something that uniquely characterizes you, who you are as a unique person in life, not a faceless person in a mindless civilization. This even psychologists, psychiatrists and sociologists recognize and the human being’s innate quest to seek out something unique and personal. Like a personal signature, a stamp or a mark that one leaves behind, in the hope of seeking a glory or a name. That one is not totally obliterated in the sea of humanity and the tides of time that will leave absolutely no footprint of any of you reading this. Ever.

This is a deep quest. To be known in this world, after the human identity is gone. Wars have been fought, untold crimes committed in the name of “being someone” in this world. Having a name. Are we then to believe that this is a glorious concept to live by? And if you come to the place of “what direction to take to?” it would only be repetitious. For anything original can only arise out of creating something anew by a human being, as a creator energy.

Leave that as it may, the direction to do something in life, merely for the sake of significance or for the sake of having a purposeful living is definitely, a crutch. For starters, it completely stops creativity while encouraging duplicating what is already done or known. The pursuit of significance, creates reasons. Reasons for wars, disputes, politics, brainwashing people, groups, religious organizations and many times entire societies, to call humans into action. Pursuit of significance, leads to pursuit of exemplifying identity or an ideology and creating philosophies or logical constructs, just for human participation and an arbitrary concept. There is nothing real to be achieved in chasing ideas no matter how intellectually stimulating or orgasmic it might sound in the beginning. Its merely an idea. And to argue, is simply a means to battle ego. Its the beginning of violence against the inherent beauty and love which is all around and within us humans. Be insignificant. Be pointless. Be a nobody. There is no one to please and nothing to gain or loose. Suddenly, there is no baggage. No claim. No pursuit. Its all living and breathing in the now, being with humans in joy and laughter and love. Not competition or argument of any kind.

Purpose. It all started with being useful in the moment. Again, everything starts from parents and moves on into greater circles of our influence. In order to make us useful in the now, this moment, our parents taught us to have a purpose. Again, it is an attempt in giving us direction. A meaning. Not to undermine this noble intent, one should, after a while, leave all purposes behind, if one has to truly claim one self. The self only resides in a realm beyond any purpose. Anyone telling you, your purpose is this or that is simply selling you something. An idea, a marketing campaign, maybe even an ideology of some sort. How can one person’s ideology become your purpose in life? Simply because they are better salesman than you? Word or language skills? Obsession with living in purpose is a disease. You walk in the streets, you see humans, walking about, with purpose. And what do you really see? People walking in a trance. People with mobile phones or cameras or some kind of gadget. No one smiles or really looks at each other. No greeting. No shared moment. But if you stopped anyone and asked, they would definitely have a “purpose” for whatever they are doing, now won’t they?! Thats the disease I am speaking of. Creating a disease of usefulness, a direction all the time, an addictive bind of constant movement without any pause. This is the trance humanity currently lives in. Live without purpose. Live without direction. Live as a being born free and free to choose as per inner guidance, not external marketing of a purpose.

Once you’re self sufficient in your own way, able to sustain, survive and enjoy your earthly enjoyments, the two things you need to immediately decide in removing out of your vocabulary and life, in all the spare time you have in your life, is Purpose and Significance. That is truly taking control of your life and your personal freedom. Away from society, away from your upbringing and culture. Just you.

Self or Others

Thats the basic contradictions angels are faced with. You and me. Its been the dilemma of ages even here, within the monastic traditions or the charitable ones. Its been the eternal quest. Do I live for my self or the others? Wars have been fought, blood shed, to know the true answer. And the quest for the one truth is at its heart, but leaving that aside for the moment, why can’t we be happy, just with a simple truth of it all: Angels are about self. And only in full knowledge of that self, comes the so called selflessness, which is nothing more than an expanded self, which in itself is self in its completeness.

There is truly nothing to fight or endlessly argue about here. One is a limited sense of self and one is the expanded sense of self. But in all, its the perspective of self that is identified with, that is in question and sought. If the perspective of self is expanded to an all knowing, creator self, which can create, at will, universes ad infinitum, then all is answer and there is no more question. Or so we would assume. For questions itself is an answer expanded and vice versa here, in the context of limited self and expanded self is it not. So what would an expanded question then look like? Who am I?

in fact this is what the human asks, many times when they have just learned to stand on their two legs without falling. Who am I? The I that is there, is now starting an expansion, a journey, which in itself is beautiful. The journey of that question leads from one answer which then transcends into another answer, which goes ad infinitum, until one discovers, the very depth of that simple question itself, which assumes various dimensions and forms.

And so we angels, really start from self and end with self. In whatever perceptional limitation or lack of we can truly admit to ourselves, this is all we do. Its like your heartbeat. Or your breath. A flow. A Yin and a Yang. The constant pulsating of life and love itself. And we finally become one with life itself. And realize that life and love are the same.

Freedom from Old

Yet another aspect of these changing energies on the planet. Humanity has been in the moulds of history, culture and the societal structures and behavior patterns that parents pass down to their kids. All kids follow or are expected to follow the path laid out to them. These are parental and ancestral barriers, which then would translate to society, culture and so on. After all what is society but humans in clusters. So everything really emanates from that core unit, called family. Incremental changes have occurred throughout human past, but now, we are stepping into a reality, where individual will break out of this mould entirely.

The breaking out of this mould is happening everywhere on the planet right now. It shall continue to this way. Until all the pent up energies of the old are released from physical form, ancestry and the earth itself, this process constitutes what is popularly termed as “cleansing” within the new age spirituality. But the interesting part comes, where it starts to show, in cultures, in individuals, in social networks, where the young generations across all borders are sharing their views, discarding structures and belief systems which are no longer applicable or are outdated in the modern context, how they can build a better and simpler world, which is not scared of its neighbors and other humans, for they see a commonality between them. where they accept their uniqueness at the same time embracing each other in love and compassion rather than suspicion and fear.

So freedom from old, results in an internally liberated human being. Not something that is externally visible or can be seen under a microscope. But an individual who has shifted from within. Broken and released their own upbringing and fixed structures of belief. Not all will do the easily. Old souls will do it in a split second. In fact they would have been doing this all their lives, knowing deep inside, that “something was very wrong ” with the structures and beliefs of their society all along. So it becomes intuitive, inborn. Not something that is learnt in a university or a class. Freedom from old, creates a human, who is internally available, open and is now able to address, in a very direct way, any and all issues, face to face, without collecting ideas from the past and pasting it onto the next challenge. Instead, it will be dealt with, again, intuitively, from that vast source of inner knowledge that we each have. There would be no mind or mental concepts necessary here, for that would only mean, the past. Intuitive concepts, would fuel the mind with fresh energies, new thoughts, concepts to create a surge in humanity. This is intact creating a new human being. Who will discard just about every old concept to begin with. For it cannot work in the new energies. New human will then have no need to itemize them or make them into fixed structures of another belief system, as they did in the past, for intuitive source is infinite and is every shifting and changing dynamically, moment to moment. When the need to create beliefs and society structures vanishes, so will the barriers of human separations across countries, cultures vanish completely. For they only relied on fixed belief systems. Humanity will morph into this giant conglomerate of free floating humans, moving across all planet, freely intermingling with each other as they wish, constantly flourished with new ideas and concepts, born in love and compassion and a firm inner sense of security and not be bogged down by fear and insecurity of the past. This would create at large, a world without borders, humans without definition or meaning, for what is the need for meaning, when there is none to be found and more importantly, when none is felt necessary. For humans will then move beyond seeking security, into adventurers of ever expanding new.

The earth itself

Right now the earth itself is being made known to its children. The one who has taken birth over and over in a land, put the salt of the angel in the soil there, is calling out to her children to rise and claim the land as it’s own. Each into his or her own land. True children of the land. Not what history or political preferences dictate. This a song evoking sentiment, is echoing love of an ancient kind in the hearts of men, women and children and through the wombs of women of the land who gave birth to children there for eons and eons.

ThisΒ being seen in the news now. Every land is and will go through this process of claim, until each land has its rightful children as its owners and there can then be peace in theΒ dirt of theΒ earth at last, which has been absent for a long time in so many lands. Then and only then can we shake hands across the borders and say “I welcome you with open arms. I salute you add a brother as a sister. And I shall hold you in love and compassion not to take away from you what is truly yours. And yet, we shall build an earth together which is grand. Where there is nothing but peace and harmony for all times.”

This song is so long awaited, it echos ancestors, ancients. The land they tilled. The earth they tasted from birth through the milk of the mother, till the thousands of deaths they died through all the roles they played there, the warrior, the shaman, the priest, the prostitute, the mother, father, skillsman. Mother is calling to her children. Profound peace is being made. And the children will respond to this calling resounding and with open arms come to their mother. It’s a circular bond that begins that elusive thing we search called peace on earth πŸ’œ

Opening Originality

It’s a fad to many. To speak of original thought, concept, even original ideas of fashion, art, poetry, paintings etc these days. A fad truly, for the concept of originality isn’t really present in any of them, but merely a rehashed version of something from the past of human history. Some would claim that it is impossible to indeed create something original, for we always have to borrow something from the past in order to create something of the future. Could this be it then? Let us explore.

First something simplistic. Originality, would by very definition of the word point to something that has not existed before. And so it is unique and unprecedented. It appears into reality as something that was not there before. And so first of all we have the term itself, which is relative, that is to say it exists within Time. Original, therefore is presented as a concept, idea just to compare it with a past timeline. Original then first has to be a concept or an idea, which then is further developed into anything further, be it a way of live, a law, a scientific application, maybe even organized religion or such. Original does not involve itself, with application of using already developed tools, such as the current living standards, practices, tools and techniques we already have at our disposal. For that would constitute what is called evolution. What we are today, as a human race, is a result of continuous evolution that has happened over course of millennia. So evolution is different from originality. Originality, as we are speaking of here for the purposes of this brief examination, is the creation of something unprecedented in the past. It is important to note that, for many confuse Evolution with Originality and therefore the claim that nothing original can be born, for we have to use the past to create the future. The tools are to be used, which were born of evolution, and yet we create something from them, which was never there in human civilization before. Like a light bulb for example. Like the creation of new art forms, as artistic form of expression itself, not just painting or poetry, but something that inherently did not exist before as even art. In this day and age of fantastic communication tools and the fifth landmark called the Internet; there is a tendency for humans to equally generate and share very powerful concepts, paradigms and ideas, which are all original thoughts. This is the engine of powerful creation of the future. If we take all the collective of blogs out there, and the ideas presented there, and crunch them with all the ideas presented by minds of the past, I am sure we will come up with a tremendous base of Original thought. This is good. For it is a catalyst for other minds. An inspiration perhaps. An urge to create more Original thoughts and concepts in all directions from science to spirituality and everything in between.

Now a step deeper. What about the origins of an Original thought? Where does this come from? Wherein lies this source of origins of any original thought itself? Every human reading this knows that this would transcend the realms of cognitive or reasoning faculty of the synapse. It does not come from the brain. It has to come from something β€œbeyond” into the physical apparatus, called the neuron. And so it is an inner knowing of every human that this originality is always transcendent phenomena. Many shy to accept it, others fight the idea. But all are aware of it and know the source to be mysterious place. And yet this mysterious source of all that is Original, feels like a familiar place, for we all visit it, with what we call intuitive thought. It can come to a painter, who dreams of it. Or a poet who strings the words, using this mysterious infinite thesaurus, self-actualizing itself into a poetic words and expression. And so even as we use the same alphabets created before, same paints that we used before and same piano or violin that was invented before, we can compose an entirely different original masterpiece that is original and does not have a precedent in any aspect. Not style, not presentation, not idea, not note, not delivery or structure. So this realm of originality is using evolved tools, ideas, inventions to create something completely original which did not exist in the past timeline.

One step even more deeper. Where can we create originality which does not even use tools, ideas etc from the past? What would that originality look like then? That would be an area perhaps, where the idea or concept is giving birth to new tools itself. It would perhaps be a time in our human past, where wheel or a light bulb is developed. When that which we define as tools, itself is defined or brought into discovery via inventions. So one could say in this context, that Originality itself is an evolution of sorts, where inventions of today, becomes the toolset for tomorrow to building more inventions as tools which becomes more sophisticated original works and forms of tomorrow. Does originality then become the grassroots steps in the process of human evolution itself?Β 

Another step further. What gives birth to Originality which creates the Original itself? In other words, what gives birth to anything that is original? The transcendent aspect of life. Now that goes beyond all cognition and it is something to which one can only give pointers to. It is that which is not linear. It is lateral, inside, outside. It permeates everything and everyone and it is multidimensional. It is within you, outside of you, it permeates your being and everything you know and you do not know also. It is the very essence of you itself.Β
