From Grumble to Humble

self-love It was "one of those mornings" when I swung my feet from under the blankets onto the cold floor. I found myself grumbling about just about everything--it was cold, my arms hurt, I worried about money, I despised the errands I had to run, and damn it, I'm GRUMPY!

I made a point of going extra slow, in some sort of protest to myself and the Universe about irritating minutia, that, later, wouldn't amount to a hill of beans. And the fact I was grumpy about THAT, made me grumpier. I just was having a hard time snapping out of the polarized mind-warp I found myself in.

Coffee. That'll do it. I made a pot, and sat down at the computer with the steaming cup o'cheer, still irritable, but far off in the distance I could see a glimmer of better moods ahead.

I skeptically decided to listen to a meditation I received in my email inbox from Emmanuel Dagher, entitled, "Activating Your Money Magnet"--I could feel weird resentments and more grumpiness rising up, but I went ahead and listened to the 20-minute meditation.

It was actually not bad. Mainly, and thankfully so, Mr. Dagher focussed on the essentials: self-love, honor, and respect. I sat, sipping my coffee and listening, and there was, finally, a shift, and I snapped into non-duality, leaving the grouchy-grumpies behind.

Mr. Dagher pointed out that "everything that happens to us is for the good". As Pollyanna as that sounds on the surface (especially when you're pointing a grumpy finger at the Universe), from a cosmic perspective it is truth. It is too easy to pick up the thread of habituated monkey mind thinkity-think and the "fake facts" of discomforts, pain, and worries on top of completely baseless fears, that we lose track of this basic truth.

The love of and in our life starts with the self. If we don't love ourselves, we literally cannot love our life, and thus the things, people, circumstances and events within it. To love self is to honor self, and this can be a hard one.

How often is it that you make what seems to be a "mistake", only to find out later it was actually not a mistake, or by the making of it, you discovered something valuable you didn't know before. There really are no mistakes. Sure, there are mis-calculations, errors of judgement and such, but these are only so because of our perspective.

From a cosmic view, everything that happens is exactly what is needed for a higher expression, or frequency of existence. We get glimpses of this "greater world", and yet have difficulty with the navigation to it, as though the vision of it requires physical movement or doing. This is not necessary. This greater world is the world where you love and honor yourself.

Go ahead. Imagine your life where you always love and honor yourself. You feel pain, you drop something, you injure yourself--all these are opportunities to honor the process of the experience. These things deepen the experience of self, and result in greater compassion for your life and the lives of others who may be having a much tougher time of it. By honoring life and our place in it, we can feel gratitude, and that gratitude faces us towards the cosmic gateway of a greater life, and a higher world for all.

I finished my coffee, and rose from my chair, only to knock the empty cup off the desk on to the floor, intact. I paused to honor the event, and smiled.

Disclosure and Consciousness

USS Enterprise Some of you may know about my deep interest in Disclosure. I first heard about it around May, 2001, when Dr. Steven Greer held the first official Disclosure Press Club Event in Washington, D.C. However, before that, through the 80's and 90's, I grabbed up everything I could find about extraterrestrial visitations, and came to the realization that we are far from alone in this galaxy and in this universe.

Then, on Sept. 12, 2001, the group I had founded, The Northwest Disclosure Project in Portland, Oregon, hosted Dr. Greer for an event in Portland, well attended by over 900 people. I was able to hang out with Greer, and he made himself candidly available to the "insiders", assailing us with the "latest" Disclosure info from his "deep state" sources.

Fast forward 18 years to the current state of the Disclosure art, and we find that some YouTube channels about Disclosure have far more viewers than mainstream media outlets. And the call for "Full Disclosure Now" is being sounded by such high profile researchers as David Wilcock and Michael Salla, as well as whistleblower insiders as Corey Goode, Laura Eisenhower, and Emery Smith. This movement has really taken off since the release of the documentary "Above Majestic", which presents the extreme development and mind-boggling extent of a long-running secret space program engaged in by several governments around the world. Add to this the announcement by President Trump of the formation of a "Space Force", that brought the Disclosure people to their feet screaming--"There already IS a space force!!" Other cooler heads see that announcement as more "soft disclosure" by yet another world government.

For those of us who have been following the extraterrestrial "UFO" phenomena for most of their lives (I remember reading George Adamski's Inside the Spaceships when I was a pre-teen), the idea of advance civilizations commuting across the galaxy and visiting Earth, was really not too much a stretch. In fact, the more I sat with the idea, the more it made sense--based on the sheer mathematics of time and space the universe represents.

For awhile there in the early 90's, I entertained Terence McKenna's view that UFOs represented the extreme human need to meet and greet a Greater Other, to the extent that humans will hallucinate extraterrestrial flying objects as proof to themselves of this mysterious and unknowable Greater Other. In McKenna's psychedelic view, such things as flying saucers were essentially constructs of the human imagination--as he himself did experience.

As time wore on, and more and more information got released by whistleblowers deep inside these covert and compartmentalized "black" military projects--often putting their lives at risk--I snapped out of the McKenna hallucination into a much more bio-centric view of the universe.

In 2007, biologist and M.D., Robert Lanza, first published the theory of the biocentric universe, which is quickly gaining acceptance in several scientific circles. The theory states that the Universe is created by living consciousness, and that biological life as we know it is far more the rule than the exception throughout the universe.

Other experiments such as the "phantom DNA" test, by Russian physicsts, showed that when photons were applied to a single strand of DNA, once the DNA itself was removed, the light itself remained in the double helix pattern. This suggests that the entire universe is infused with a sort of energy matrix that exists to create and sustain life.

Now, put these concepts together with hundreds and thousands of reports of ETs and their craft, and it really isn't a stretch to believe. In fact, any good researcher has to also be able to spot media bias and manipulation by vested commercial interests, not to mention well-documented C.I.A. MK-ULTRA mass mind-control experiments from the 50's (up to the present), and the whole Earth/ET contact thing stinks to high heaven of cover up.

Of course, we're not the only humans in the galaxy; of course there are advanced technological societies interacting all through Earth's human history; and of course, deep forces of powerful vested interests would want to control commandeered non-terrestrial technologies for the control of and power over unsuspecting citizens of Earth. These are really no-brainers.

Destiny But it's not the point I want to make. Human consciousness is on a steep trajectory of evolution upward, and the thrust of the evolution is an expansion of consciousness into cosmic awareness that we are all ONE with the universe. Science is showing that there are energetic electrical connective filaments running throughout the solar system and even between galaxies, where energy is exchanged on a vast level across unimaginable distances. And we have access to all that connectivity. Evolution is exterting inexhorable pressure upon the human genome to expand consciousness WAY beyond where we have been culturally trained to be focussed (or distracted).

The significance of acknowledging awareness of non-terrestrial life, is to connect with the rest of the living universe. It is an evolutionary imperative. I would go so far to say that to deny the existence of living, breathing, building, traveling civilizations beyond our solar system is to deny our own destiny.
