Neil Kramer : Atonement

https://neilkramer.com/roamcast-25-atonement/

The way we conduct ourselves tells of our spiritual embodiment. The way we move in the world reflects our inner state, not necessarily always what we would like, but rather what is, in any given moment. So when we observe a person who intuitively conducts themselves with purpose and grace, we are witnessing the reflection of something valuable inside.

Many people attempt to simulate purposeful graceful behavior, but it never quite holds true, if it isn’t. The delusional decay within permeates their performance; you can smell it.

Genuinely good conduct is a joy to behold. It is an art form to see someone with goodness in motion, truly good in their marrow. Someone who knows how to do things, simple things: how to express gratitude and appreciation, how to write a letter, how to hold, how to give and receive, how to listen, how to ask, how little or how much to talk, when to help, when not to help; they just instinctively know what to do.

To me, these social skills represent the basics of human communication, the ground floor rudimentary protocols for how to treat each other well, how to embody virtue and consideration. And when we do these things, we inspire courteous, intelligent, warmhearted families and communities which are a pleasure to participate in.

To some people, all of this might sound a bit too much, too much to ask. A person might even say, ‘Well, to hell with that. I just do what I do, and if someone doesn’t like that, then that’s too bad, that’s the way I am.‘ Well, you’ll notice, with a person like this, that they usually have bad conduct. They don’t want to look at themselves, it is troubling for them to believe that they might be behaving badly, so they just do what they do and bury their problems. And in so doing, they are essentially telling you that they operate only for their own comfort, their own security, their own entertainment. And if that means being selfish or inconsiderate or even vulgar and disruptive, then so be it… They are not capable of generating or sustaining the harmony that they fantasize about, because they do not have it within themselves.

But, let’s concentrate on those that do. What can we learn here?

When we do see someone who behaves well, someone with whom time shared is a joy, what is it that they are doing, exactly, that makes it so good? Is it just some arbitrary personalized list of things that they do, preferences and attributes that we just sort of happen to like? Or is something more universal going on? I would say it is the skill of judging appropriateness that makes someone’s behavior so beautiful. The ability for the individual to naturally gauge the suitability of a thing: a word, a gesture, physical space, the volume of voice in different environments, appropriateness of humor, kinds of language in the presence of old people and children, facial expressions, tone of communication, everything.

Appropriateness is built on thoughtfulness, thinking about how your actions affect the world around you: you, the people you are with, the people passing by, the land, the animals, the plants, the elements, society at large, your family, your companions, your loved ones… How is your passage through the day affecting the world, the elements of life in which you are inextricably intertwined? What is the quality of your presence?” ~Neil Kramer

The Stellar Man

http://www.unicusmagazine.com/PDF/John-Baines–The-Stellar-Man-Hermetic-Philosophy-book-2.pdf

“The ability to see reality is not a congenital capacity. The human being is only able to observe the map that he himself created from a subjective, limited, and rationalized
interpretation.

This process creates a personalized pseudo-reality, of which there are as many as there are inhabitants of this planet. I call this imaginative creation “social reality,” since in practice, the individual is a mere cultural resonator and an appendage of the collective psyche of humanity.

This is why people live “half-way” and are a mixture of good and bad; why they are a little asleep and a little awake; why they are insignificant even with all their delusions of grandeur. In other words, they do not live profoundly and cannot even grasp the overwhelming significance of this fact. They just graze the surface of the planet and the epidermis of knowledge.” ~John Baines, The Stellar Man

Neil Kramer : Higher Journeys Radio – The Path To Truth

https://neilkramer.com/higher-journeys-radio-the-path-to-truth/

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.

Thich Nhat Hanh Wisdom

https://www.goodreads.com/author/quotes/9074.Thich_Nhat_Hanh?page=1

“Some people live as though they are already dead. There are people moving around us who are consumed by their past, terrified of their future, and stuck in their anger and jealousy. They are not alive; they are just walking corpses.”

“If we are not fully ourselves, truly in the present moment, we miss everything.”

“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.”

“The soil of our mind contains many seeds, positive and negative. We are the gardeners who identify, water, and cultivate the best seeds.”

“Feelings come and go like clouds in a windy sky. Conscious breathing is my anchor.”

“Due to attachment, anger, and foolishness, I have committed numberless mistakes in speech, deed and thought. I bow my head and repent. I vow from today to begin anew, to live day and night in mindfulness, and not to repeat my previous mistakes.”

“When you love someone, you have to offer that person the best you have. The best thing we can offer another person is our true presence.”

“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.”

“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.”

“My actions are my only true belongings.”

Feel Like Time Is Speeding Up Lately…?

Somebody who only reads newspapers and, at best, books of contemporary authors looks to me like an extremely near-sighted person who scorns eyeglasses. He is completely dependent on the prejudices and fashions of his times, since he never gets to see or hear anything else.” ~Albert Einstein, 1952

“The level of deeper thinking, of deeper analysis, of going to actual books on a shelf; that kind of thinking is disappearing as people just flit from one digital source to the next digital source for that next hit of dopamine, as Microsoft puts it.

So what is society going to look like when masses of people lose their ability to have a deep thought? What is going to happen if large, large segments of society lose the ability for deeper reflection and critical thinking skills? It’s like every dystopic novel and movie I’ve ever seen, everything from H.G. Wells straight on to George Orwell.” ~Melissa Dykes

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
