The Collapse of Western Civilization

“[Our culture] has run its course, which is morally, aesthetically and spiritually bankrupt.” ~Ann Glyn-Jones

“Despite all our technology, our entertainment, our consumerism, our chemical enhancements, we’re more miserable than ever before. Our existential dread is more pronounced than ever before. Educational, intellectual and material ease has manifested civilizational malaise and a lack of transcendent purpose…

The result of this lack of transcendent purpose is self-destruction, not merely on a personal level, but on a population scale… Technical sophistication has been accompanied by mass incompetence in the art of living.’ ~Theodore Dalrymple

There’s only so far that quasi-religious devotion to yoga, Starbuck’s pumpkin spice lattes and Whole Foods kale shakes can go. The latest IPhone can only distract you from the nagging voice of conscience for so long. Endlessly consuming products will never satiate the soul.

We live in the ruins of a civilization that has lost faith in itself.” ~Paul Joseph Watson

TIME – THE ILLUSORY PHENOMENON

https://www.wakingtimes.com/2019/02/25/time-the-illusory-phenomenon/

“[We] operate in condensed microbursts of information. Empathy, resonance, and emotions already operate in that quantum field. We just accept them as normal and somehow differentiate those from the sentient environment we’re within. But we’re catching on during this vibrational awakening. The mind is a recorder and processor according to its input, but is always out of date. The mind is the last thing to be directing our lives. Our energetic core is where it’s all happening, connected to more realms than we’re yet fully aware of. The mind is simply a slave server – and a terrible master. Just look at what minds have done to the planet and society – an ever-present teaching tool.

An interesting axiom to consider is, whatever takes us out of living in the NOW is an illusion. We’re here to live in and deal with this realm, but it’s not real in the true sense of reality. Ideas of the past and future are known diversions. They’re mind constructs. We create our reality, moment by moment, a living dynamic. If we choose to go by yesterday’s ideas and constructions we can. But is it the true potential reality?

Our true freedom of choice is boundless… But awareness of our magnificent nature and freedom to do as we wish is essential. We’re constantly catching up to now. That’s our learning experience as we awaken. That time is an illusion is almost common knowledge now but how that applies to our day-to-day lives has been illusive.

This concept is not the way we normally think. It’s transcending time while living in it – timelessly. The time test is fundamental as to why we’re here in many ways. Sorrow, pain, regrets, past traumas, longings for what we think will fulfill us or make us happy – these plague us and have no lasting solution here. These issues can be resolved through inner work within conscious awareness, identifying how we’re operating in reactive loops that keep us in limitation. But when we’re conscious, the other stuff just happens as we follow on, let go, and yield to moments, having a conscious driven impetus. Getting out-of-the-way and identifying the ego traps of dead assertions is essential. With this comes setting a limitless identity and letting go of anything else.” ~Zen Gardner

Neil Kramer : Scars & Lamentations

http://neilkramer.com/roamcast-24-scars-lamentations/

“Very few have a spiritual path. Most have nothing at all, of course. Seeking the truth with all your heart is a black and white thing, it is absolute because you’re either doing it or you’re not. The light is on or off… It needs consistent and repeated experiential encounter. And it doesn’t matter what your circumstances are… At all times, you have, in front of you, everything necessary to develop and apply your spiritual understanding; at all times, in every hour of your life, if you wish…

The purest, deepest, life changing spiritual wisdom emanating direct from the divine is available to everyone at all times in equal measure should the individual choose to prepare their vessel of being to receive such wisdom. You must make the deep inner vow to stay here, to willfully choose to be here in this world and remain until the end, to give your life, to dwell intentionally here, and to not fantasize about escaping. Be here, and make it good. Make it worthwhile.” ~Neil Kramer

The Power of Emotional Agility & Why Discomfort is the Price of Admission to a Meaningful Life

https://www.richroll.com/podcast/susan-david-356/

“When we block or suppress or push aside emotions, we actually stop ourselves from being our most effective, successful beings.” ~Susan David, PhD

“The way we navigate our inner world – our everyday thoughts, emotions, and self-stories – is the single most important determinant of our life success. It drives our actions, careers, relationships, happiness, health; everything. For example: Do we let our self-doubts, failings, shame, fear, or anger hold us back? Can we be determined, persevering toward key life goals, but just as importantly, have the insight and courage to recognize when these goals are not serving us, and adapt?

According to this week’s guest, the key to successfully navigating our inner world isn’t immunizing ourselves against stress and setbacks. And it doesn’t involve ignoring uncomfortable feelings. Instead, it’s developing something called emotional agility – the teachable ability to confront difficult emotions, gain critical self-insight from these feelings, and ultimately use this newfound awareness to adaptively align our values with our actions and make changes to bring the best of ourselves forward…

[This is a conversation] about how and why our emotional landscape, the everyday thoughts and stories we often hide from the world and oftentimes ourselves, are the single most important determinant of life success. And why navigating life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind leads to empowerment and agency.

It’s about why we must overcome the urge to ignore difficult emotions and behaviors to instead face them willingly, as a neutral observer, with curiosity and kindness. It’s about identifying your core values as a path to willpower, resilience and effectiveness. And it’s about how developing this skill called emotional agility – essentially mastery over our emotions, thoughts and stories… But more than anything, this is a conversation about the perils of avoiding uncomfortable feelings. Because the tough emotions are the price we pay for a meaningful life.”

Neil Kramer & Niles Heckman: Transmutation, The Divine Mysteries & The Path Of The Mystic

https://www.thehighersidechats.com/neil-kramer-niles-heckman-transmutation-the-divine-mysteries-the-path-of-the-mystic/

“[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.”

The War on Consciousness – Graham Hancock

https://grahamhancock.com/

“What is death? Our materialist science reduces everything to matter. Materialist science in the West says that we are just meat, we’re just our bodies. So when the brain is dead, that’s the end of consciousness, there is no life after death, there is no soul; we just rot and are gone. Actually, many honest scientists should admit that consciousness is the greatest mystery of science and that we don’t know exactly how it works. The brain is involved in it some way but we’re not sure how. It could be that the brain generates consciousness the way a generator makes electricity, if you hold to that paradigm, then of course you can’t believe in life after death, when the generator’s broken, consciousness is gone. But it’s equally possible that the relationship — and nothing in neuroscience rules it out – that the relationship is more like the relationship of the TV signal to the TV set, and in that case, when the TV set is broken, of course the TV signal continues. And this is the paradigm of all spiritual traditions, that we are immortal souls temporarily incarnated in these physical forms to learn and to grow and to develop

If we want to know about this mystery, the last people we should ask are materialist reductionist scientists… Let’s go, rather, to the ancient Egyptians who put their best minds to work for 3,000 years on the problem of death, and on the problem of how we should live our lives to prepare for what we will confront after death… They came to certain, very specific conclusions that the soul does survive death and that we will be held accountable for every thought, every action, every deed that we have lived through in our lives, so we better take this precious opportunity to be born in a human body seriously and make the most of it…

There is a war on consciousness in our society, and if we as adults are not allowed to make sovereign decisions about what to experience with our own consciousness while doing no harm to others, including the decision to use responsibly ancient and sacred visionary plants, then we cannot claim to be free in any way.” ~Graham Hancock
