Dear Ones,

Yesterday I was standing atop a middling peak in Chumash Park, Simi Valley, California. There I had an expansive view of a quiet, upscale urban area. The breeze on the overlook was so gentle that there was but a small rustle of leaves round my vantage point.

Off in the distance, to my left I could hear the muted roar of Freeway 118. To my right I heard, far below me, the muted roar of lawn maintenance equipment in the yards of the suburbanites.

The sound of motors is ever prevalent in our urban centers … so much so that we tune it out. I feel this ever-present dull roar of motors is one of the factors that make the noosphere of our urban centers nearly unbearable to those of us with clair skills.

The fourth dimensional occult lore … the esoteric lore of the astral realm … would have it that there are beings known as Asuras … quite unpleasant beings, that cast a shadow over the works of men. These beings, it is said (and I affirm) are attracted to dissonant, raucous sounds such as those of motors. Thus the Asuras … unbeknownst to the casual observer … flock and swarm through our city airs.

In the mountains, such as the mountain on which I stood yesterday, are the beings sometimes termed Suras

… nice beings that uplift the spirits of human beings and, through their very nature, refresh our mini-noospheres … the thoughts that tend to be in our personal brains … with the emotions of hope and loving kindness and joy in the moment.

In the occult lore there are various names for the hundreds of beings of the astral realm. In my own writings, I call the Asuras Demons or Devils or Negative Astral Beings. And I call the Suras Devas and Nature Spirits and Nature Elementals. You will find more about those beings in my blog categories by those names.

Here are two examples of the Suras: from my trek along the Chumash trail …

Can you see the faces of two brownies painted below the blue rock in this image? Paintings like these, I feel, mean that the brownies want other nature spirits to know that these rocks are their deeply cherished homes …

Can you see the two ‘eyes’ crafted by the spirit of the tree in the trunk of its charge? These vividly portray the sentient spirit of the tree; and that, I feel was the intention of the spirit of the tree in crafting them …
