The elephant is richly caparisoned, and carries a noose in its trunk.” … https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/9a/Tiruchchirappalli_painting_Indra.jpg ..

Dear Ones,

I know these are confusing times. We have been clearing through the unconscious thought cloud of the world lately. These energy streams have been percolating up in each of us, from the unconscious level, to the subconscious mind, then into our conscious minds, and then as the emotions are released, we …. all humankind … are dissolving these energy streams in conscious Love.

DISSOLUTION OF THE UNCONSCIOUS THOUGHT CLOUD OF THE WORLD

I have identified these as rising to consciousness and dissipating …

  • fight or flight response (1) … a response of the autonomic (previously unconscious) nervous system
  • deep seated unconscious imprints of predator  / prey, what I once called the victim-aggressor paradigm (2)
  • mammalian mating instincts, especially sexual dominance and submission … those deeply hidden, unconscious behavioral imprints
  • mammalian pack behavior (3) … pretty gruesome, really … being as it is so far from what we think of as human

Humankind is ceasing to daydream. And to night dream. Turns out our preoccupation with sexuality has been based on this ‘shared dreaming’ … a feature of the unconscious thought cloud of the world.

What will the end result be, people are asking? After the deep, deep dreams end for humankind? I’m reminded of a Hindu story I learned years ago, which I hold most dear and true. Hope you like it too:

THE STORY OF THE KING OF GODS AND THE PIGS, BY SWAMI VIVEKANANDA

“There is a story that the king of the gods, Indra, once became a pig, wallowing in mire; he had a she pig, and a lot of baby pigs, and was very happy.

“Then some other angels saw his plight, and came to him, and told him, ‘You are the king of the gods, you have all the gods command. Why are you here?’

“But Indra said, ‘Let me be; I am all right here; I do not care for the heavens, while I have this sow and these little pigs.’

“The poor gods were at their wits’ end what to do. After a time they decided to slowly come and slay one of the little pigs, and then another, until they had slain all the pigs, and the sow too.

“When all were dead Indra began to weep and mourn. Then the gods ripped his pig body open and he came out of it, and began to laugh when he realised what a hideous dream he had had; he, the king of the gods, to have become a pig, and to think that the pig-life was the only life! Not only so, but to have wanted the whole universe to come into the pig life!

“The Purusa, (4) when it identifies itself with nature, forgets that it is pure and infinite. The Purusa does not live; it is life itself. It does not exist; it is existence itself.  The Soul does not know; it is knowledge itself. It is an entire mistake to say that the Soul lives, or knows, or loves. Love and existence are not the qualities of the Purusa, but its essence. When they get reflected upon something you may call them the qualities of that something.

“But they are not the qualities of the Purusa, but the essence of this great Atman, this Infinite Being, without birth or death, Who is established in His own glory, but appears as if become degenerate until if you approach to tell Him, ‘You are not a pig,’ he begins to squeal and bite. Thus with us all in this Maya, this dream world, where it is all misery, weeping, and
crying, where a few golden balls are rolled, and the world scrambles after them.

“You were never bound by laws, Nature never had a bond for you. That is what the Yogi tells
you; have patience to learn it. And the Yogi shows how, by junction with this nature, and identifying itself with the mind and the world, the Purusa thinks itself miserable.

“Then the Yogi goes on to show that the way out is through experience. You have to get all this experience, but finish it quickly. We have placed ourselves in this net, and will have to get out. We have got ourselves caught in the trap, and we will have to work out our freedom. So get this experience of husbands and wives, and friends, and little loves, and you will get
through them safely if you never forget what you really are.

“Never forget this is only a momentary state, and that we have to pass through it. Experience is the one great teacher — experiences of pleasure and pain — but know they are only experiences, and will all lead, step by step, to that state when all these things will become small, and the Purusa will be so great that this whole universe will be as a drop in the ocean, and will fall off by its own nothingness. We have to go through these experiences, but let us never forget the ideal.” –from the section “Yoga Aphorisms: Concentration II 137” in Link: “Raja Yoga by Swami Vivekananda,” issued by Celepha’is Press, somewhere beyond die Tanarian Hills (i.e. Leeds, England), August 2003 E.V.

THE GREAT AWAKENING

So basically, and as highly unlikely as it may seem, what is happening on Earth as we ascend, is that all humanity is rising to Awareness of its true nature. No longer the swine king. But Indra, King of the Gods.

Humankind is rising to the majesty of Soul Awareness. To the level of the spiritual adept, and beyond. Far past the dreams of a piggish life. Far past attachment to the senses.

Into dimensions heretofore only experienced as transient ecstasy. Transient no more. Ever present, ever changing, All sustaining Joy.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This is a video about reality …

  • Movie examples discussed: the earliest Fantasia, Rodan, and ‘The Fly’.
  • The notion that human incarnation is like our Divine Nature being married to ‘pigness’.
  • The interweaving of the Dark Network and the Grid of Light … a skein, a blanket woven of dark and light threads.
  • How making the Dark lighter must make the Light darker in the Third Dimension, the causal realm, which our senses celebrate as ‘physical reality’.
  • How we can escape Duality by concentrating on the 8th chakra … the energy just above our heads. This is the escape hatch from the causal realm … See my blog category: 08th chakra 

There is an edited Summary after the video …

INTRODUCTION

We humans chose the experience of Duality … on both the physical and the astral plane … because it helps us achieve Soul wisdom.

The experience of physicality is but a brief hologrammatic ‘performance’. Most of our causal realm Soul learning takes place during the temporally lengthy intervals between incarnations, during which we are experiencing the astral and mental planes and refining our understanding of our most recent incarnation.

One could view incarnations as ‘field work’ and the disincarnate intervals as ‘classroom time’ in Soul school.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

Stories by Alice: Three Movies

I have a short story to tell you about a science fiction movie I saw many, many years ago, at a time when the effects of science fiction movies were rudimentary, compared to today. But because we did not know that they were going to be getting any better, we really got into those sci fi effects in the early films.

“Fantasia” Movie. The first film that I ever saw was “Fantasia,” a 1940 animated film produced by Walt Disney. “Fantasia was a beautifully rendered cartoon movie with absolutely exquisite music in it …

Link: “‘Fantasia’ (1940 Film),” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fantasia_(1940_film) ..

Video: “fantasia walt disney’s 1940 original movie Nutcracker Suite part1- fairies dancing,” by chiasma16, 16 November 2009 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inesNeqZuK0 ..

I loved it. I saw it twice, I think, when I was very young. It was the only movie playing. As I recall, it may have been the very first film to play in a small movie theatre in my home town, Upper Marlboro, which is the County Seat of Prince George’s County, Maryland.

“Rodan” Movie. Then, some years later, I went with some friends of mine to see a science fiction horror film with the very earliest science fiction effects. Called “Rodan” …

Link: “Rodan,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rodan ..

This is a trailer from the movie, which I take to be expressing the nightmares of the collective unconscious of the Japanese people following on the atom bomb explosion there …

Video: “Rodan Movie Trailer,” by horrormovieshows, 17 June 2007, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i5jfCb6-2RA&t=1s ..

The movie told the story of a giant monster godzilla animal that was as big as a tall building … or larger … and it went around eating buildings. I could tolerate only about ten minutes of that, and then I went outside the movie theatre and waited for my friends to finish the movie. It was that scary for me. That is the second story.

“The Fly” Movie. The third story has to do with a sci fi movie that I saw some years later; I think it was called “The Fly” …

Link: “‘The Fly’ (1958 Film),” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Fly_(1958_film) ..

And then I saw it again, so I remember the details pretty accurately. It had to do with an extremely courageous, innovative, daring scientist who invented a machine … What did it do? Somehow it took you to the future and back; it rearranged your atoms in some way, on the way back. It was a little like your very earliest “Beam me up, Scottie” Star Trek idea, except that this was a Mad Scientist notion.

His wife saw him get into this contraption; he was going to be the first person ever to try that. Unfortunately, there was a fly in there two. On the way back, the atoms of the scientist and the fly got mixed up, and the result was a person with the head of a fly … which scared his wife considerably … and a fly with the head of a person … which talked in a tiny little voice as if it were the husband, only it was so small you could barely see it.

I realize that this is an unhappy story, but I like it, because it has to do with the realms of reality that we are experiencing, too. I could use it.

A Hindu Tale: The God Who Thought He Was a Pig

A long, long time ago, the Hindus came up with a story that was a little like a story I am going to tell that is based on “The Fly.” It had to do with a god who incarnated on Earth and fell in love with a pig lady, and had a lot of little pig babies, and forgot that he was a god …

Link: “Of Gods and Swine . a Hindu Tale,” from Alice B. Clagett, published on 19 February 2017; revised … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-7ts ..

Then the other gods, I guess, seeing the predicament he was in, made sure that he died and came to the realization that he was not really a pig; and he was very surprised about that.

This is a metaphor for the eternal Soul, I think; and how it falls into a human incarnation … falls into the web of cause and effect in the 3D realm … and forgets how godlike it truly is.

Balance in the Third and Fourth Dimensions: The Dark Network and the Grid of Light

To get back to the story of “The Fly” … In the third dimension, it seems to me, there is a Dark Network and a Grid of Light, and these two are intimately entwined, to the point where it is not really possible to eliminate evil at one point in the gridwork, by shining Light on it, without ratcheting up evil in the Darkness in the Grid of Light. At least, this was the case before the Ascension process happened.

It is a kind of ‘mousetrap effect’. To me, it feels like a skein … a warp and a woof of a blanket … different colored strands woven together to create this reality. As I say, it is not possible to make the Dark lighter without making the Light darker. It all has to balance out …

The Human ‘Fly’: Crying Out for Rescue from the Causal Spider Web

Here are some stills and some of the sound from the end of the movie “The Fly.” In the finale, Vincent Price mercifully puts an end to the high pitched shrieking of the little guy caught in the spiderweb …

Video: “Help Me, Please Help Me,” by hubbardhamlin, 12 March 2013, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PcF4xDzt77Y ..

This movie ‘The Fly’ reminds me of the Dark Network … the causal trap in which we humans have agreed to play the Duality Game so as to increase Soul wisdom.

Just from the perspective of this third dimension, physical reality … and a little bit higher realm which is also causal, the astral realm … people seem to me to be like that sci fi image of the tiny little fly with the head of a person, crying out, Help me, help me! I am right here!

And then the friend or wife is just sitting in an easy chair on the lawn, and cannot hear it because the voice is so tiny … it is the voice of a fly, and the mind of a person.

In the causal realm, we are trapped like that. And the people that I hear, on the astral plane, are like that too. It is a transformation, definitely; a transformation … from the eternal now to the stuck-like-superglue causal realm …  so that we can experience Soul lessons. It is not done without considerable skill on the part of our wonderful teams of Angels and so forth. And it is not us. It is not us.

How to Escape the Causal Realm

I just want to explain something for those of you who are coming to the point of understanding the limitations of the third dimension, and the astral plane … the fourth dimension … and you want out

Let’s say you are experiencing an astral story, and you just do not like it; you are not producing it. You just do not like this story. These stories come and go, all day long, in the astral plane, the fourth dimension.

The way to get out … the exit door for the ‘playhouse’ … is your ‘topknot’ up here [point about 3 inches above head] … your eighth chakra up above your head. The ‘bow-tie knot‘ or constriction, the varying constricted energy that you feel there, is the producer of the astral play that you are experiencing.

If you place your attention … your Awareness … there, then ask for help from the higher realms, the knot will untie itself, and you will be free of the transformative effects of the third and fourth dimensions. You will be closer to your true, Godlike, eternal Soul.

So, just to let you know, the escape hatch … the exit door … from the causal realm is in the eighth chakra, above your head. And all you have to do, to walk out that door, is to place your attention there, and notice the bow-tie constriction. Then ask to align with God’s will and heart and mind, with help from your Ascension team and from the Angelic Realm.

Animated Gif: Dark Network, Middling Realm, and Grid of Light

When my consciousness sinks into 3D, I feel trapped like the little guy in the movie “The Fly.”

As soon as I place my Awareness on the eighth chakra, align with the will of God, and ask for help from my Ascension team and the Angelic Realm, I no longer feel trapped in the causal realm. It is a welcome sense of liberation.

For those who prefer the Advaita approach, as I sometimes do, the same feeling of freedom can be attained by calling in the higher selves, the higher subtle bodies.

The below animated gif portrays my sense of shifting from the causal realms into the realms of Light, and back again. Those attuned to the nuances of variations in the Body of Light may sense this shift occurring many times in one day …

Conclusion

I hope I did not weird you out too much with the stories of the god who married the pig, and the scientist who transformed himself partly into a fly. I hope you are all doing fine and having a wonderful day, enjoying the beautiful sunshine … or cloudy day, if that is what it is.

You all take care. Love you lots.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
