“The more you know who you are and what you want, the less you let things upset you.” ~Bob Harris (Lost in Translation, Written by Sofia Coppola)
“We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep… They have created a repressive society and we are their unwitting accomplices. Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness. We have been lulled into a trance… Please understand, they are safe as long as they are not discovered — that is their primary method of survival; keep us asleep, keep us selfish, keep us sedated… They are dismantling the sleeping middle class. More and more, people are becoming poor. We are their cattle; we are being bred for slavery.” ~John Carpenter (They Live)
“Death is the road to awe.” ~The Fountain

“Through the input of personalities such as CIA whistleblower Kevin Shipp, investigative journalist Liz Crokin and some Hollywood insiders, Out of the Shadows tackles topics such as:
-Mass media control by the elite
-Hollywood as psychological warfare
-Project MKULTRA and trauma-based mind control
-Satanism and pedophilia in Hollywood
Out of the Shadows is a well-produced documentary that exposes difficult topics using great insights, footage, and information. The documentary does sometimes go into unverified “conspiracy-101” territory (i.e. the origins of the word “television”) which may detract from its overall message. Nevertheless, it remains a good introduction to several important topics.”
“Midsommar is about 8% fiction and about 92% based on real pagan rituals and traditions…” ~Melissa Dykes

Neil Kramer talks to Alexis Brooks on Higher Journeys Radio.
We talk about the Transmutation movie, awakening and depth, choosing truth, equity in spiritual adventure, nature as ally, supernatural structures, suffering as purification, the 3D going away, everything is in the voice, spiritual detective skills, power flows into equilibrium.
Alexis writes: “…Why is it that some individuals have a natural thirst for discovery and others are perfectly okay with living a status quo existence? And in this age of revelation why is it that still the masses seem so tethered to their sleep state, even while the truth is beckoning their attention? Neil addresses these questions with his usual eloquence and unmistakable candor.”
“Genuine spiritual life, the essence of it, is that the whole superstructure here is of supernatural origin, and the controlling factor in this temporary earth in which we’re in is negative. So dealing with that negativity, confronting the negative, is an essential part of spiritual accomplishment.
That means, to have wisdom, you must suffer…
The ten wisest people I know, they’ve all suffered. And I, too, suffer. But I suffer less and less because I’ve improved my relationship with disharmony and I see that suffering is purification, and the more that you can do it in it’s burning core, the less it dogs you in life, and the less you’re despondent or desolate or fed up or in pain, because you allow the suffering to do its thing, and that is a purifying fire… That is an essential part of alchemy. Until that takes place, you cannot know something. So pain is essential in spiritual life. Essential.“
“[I]t’s easy to feel disenfranchised with our cog in the wheel society and the life sucking Empire perched above it. Draining us spiritually, emotionally, and in every other sense of the word. Stifling our innovation and development., and filling us with the aggressive indoctrination that if you seek a path outside of normalcy you will no doubt, crash and burn.
However, we still see some people outside of that cage who seem different: Freer, happier, enlightened and at peace – and we hear these outliers telling us that freedom is only a few brave choices away… that the Universe rewards the bold, and there isn’t much holding us back except our own fear. It’s a tough message to adopt, but there’s no denying the persistent call to tear down those cubical walls, shatter the shackles of the Empire, and orient our lives towards our True Will and the path of the Esoteric Tradition…
[Today, we’re joined by Neil Kramer,] a philosopher, teacher, and esotericist. His work focuses on spirituality, mysticism, and metaphysics. He is a faculty member at the Omega Institute in New York, where he teaches spiritual philosophy, mysticism, esoteric studies, and self-development… [W]e’re also joined by Niles Heckman. A talented film maker and documentarian who has worked on several projects in line with the spiritual path including his episodic series, “Shamans of the Global Village.”
Together, they’ve just released a new documentary entitled Transmutation. Written and Narrated by Neil and Directed by Niles, Transmutation is a documentary about becoming your best self, rejecting the Empire, discovering the beauty and dangers of a hidden spiritual path, and hearing from those who have transformed themselves by walking it.”
“We live in a world of screens. More of us would know this, if we look up, and look around. The screens are everywhere, pervasive: fingers that are glued to the screen which are glued to the eyes which are glued to the screen. We use them for work, play. But it’s much more than that. The screens use us, too. How did we get here? And where’s this journey leading us? What does that even look like? And is it what we want? Is this culture’s technology changing us and our societies for the better? Does it empower all of us—like it claims to—or does it only empower a select few at the expense of the many? What’s the price we pay to live in this pervasive electronic world?
This era is unprecedented, and perhaps never before has technology been so prolific and shaped our lives so intimately. But there’s a dark side we don’t talk about. Why is that? Is it because we’re too busy being glued to the screen? Why do we shy away from questions about our collective addiction? What’s lurking under the surface?
Could it be that with this era, the stakes have also never been so high that we’ve got it all wrong?”
A film by Jordan Brown.
“Synthetic emotions in the form of pills, psychological warfare in the form of advertising, mind altering chemicals in the form of food, brainwashing seminars in the form of media, controlled isolated bubbles in the form of social networks. Real? You want to talk about reality? We haven’t lived in anything remotely close to it since the turn of the century.”
“This is the world now; plugged in and logged on all the time. We can’t live without it… These people are inviting their own extinction through the front door and they don’t even know it.”
“We have been lulled into a trance.”
“We are living in an artificially induced state of consciousness that resembles sleep.”
“Their intention to rule rests with the annihilation of consciousness.”
