Dear Ones,

THE FUTURE ROLE OF MEN

I see it can be very hard for men in these days of the great change. In aeons past, they have been the great Protectors, the Wise Shepherds of this World.

In future, what shall their role be?

MEN AND SEXUALITY

I had an interesting experience the night before last. My EMF (electromagnetic field) was huge, gigantic really. Joined to me in an etheric act of sex was a man.

Though he felt he was the only man, I sensed many men there too, each with a different woman.

Though each man felt he was the man performing this act, and each woman felt she was the woman performing this act, yet I sensed each was my own Soul, performing this act with my own physical body.

In one sense, we cause the act of sexual delight, each with another partner.

In another sense, we are the Cause, and we are the Partner.

In another sense, there is no Cause and no Partner, and yet, there is that Experience of Supreme Joy.

ALICE’S VISION DURING A LONG MEDITATION: MEN AS CHILDREN OF GOD

I had a vision once, in the early 2000’s. I was meditating in an Indian-style temple. It was during a long evening meditations, interspersed with some beautiful kirtan.

There was a courtyard outside. Both day and night it sparkled with blue white light, not just down near the ground, where people walked, but high up into the sky.

In my vision, Lord Krishna sat in the courtyard. His etheric essence filled the courtyard, shimmering out into the temple and the parking lot, and higher still. He held his hand out in front of him, at heart level, cupped.

In his hand sat a person playing kirtan, completely immersed in Divine love. The picture above reminds me a little of my vision.

MEN AND DESIRE

The fire of desire may seem uncontrollable. But Divine Masculine is its master!

The Shift occurs on realizing that the object of desire lies not outside us, but within us.

Desire begins to be felt, not by our body toward another person, but by our Soul toward our Human Form.

So Desire becomes manifestation of the Divine in this physical form. Fulfilled ceaselessly, in Highest Joy, as an act of creation, in the Now. (2)

NONDUALITY

I AM THAT ETERNAL FLAME
A Poem by Alice B. Clagett
27 January 2015

I am that Eternal Flame.
I am the Light and the Life.
I am the Way and the One who has found it.
I am the Dark that shapes this Light.
I am the All.
I am that within the All,
nurtured and nurturing.
Always the flame.
Ever changing.

. . . . .

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

(1) I feel it is a mistake to imagine these are two separate people.

Rather, to me it seems this is a picture of the One God, at one with His Creation.

So then, as a man identifying with Godness, how can he look down on woman, who is one with him?

Is it not true that a woman bore us?
Who then is higher? Who lower?
If we are That, is She not the Source of That?

Guru Nanak wrote a beautiful prayer about this. See Link: “Raag Aasaa Mehala 1,” by Guru Nanak, Page 473 … http://www.srigurugranth.org/0473.html … Search the term: From woman … and then read the following text.

Dear Ones,

ON SIMPLY LOVING

See the passage beginning “Instead of trying …” by Matt Kahn, at https://www.facebook.com/mattkahn/photos/a.172255239572822.33440.172253322906347/424822657649411/ .. date 14 October 2014

Matt Kahn is so great! His message here reminded me of a teleseminar with Peggy Black the other day (1), where she said something like: Instead of judging yourself when your heart feels closed, just notice how safe it makes you feel. Then when your heart is open, notice how THAT feels. (2)

BUDDHIST TEXT ON DISCRIMINATION

Reminds me of a Buddhist text on the mental faculty of Discrimination, the full text of which is at the bottom of this page:

Link: “The Dharma Essentials for Cultivating Stopping and Contemplation,” by the Swei Dynasty Shramana Chih-i of T’ien-t’ai Mountain’s Dhyana Cultivation Monastery, translated into English by Dharmamitra (Taisho Tripitaka 1915),  http://www.fodian.net/world/1915_09.html … the section starting “If one engages …” (3)

To paraphrase this short section, if we cast the searchlight of discrimination on our recollections, then this is the ‘demon net’ … but sitting still, and ceasing to discriminate, is the mark of the Dharma [what the Sikhs define as ‘the path of righteousness’].

ASTRAL STORIES AND UNCONSCIOUS DISCRIMINATION

Amongst the astral stories now circulating in the clair realm, the ‘searchlight of discrimination’ might also refer to the recurring video clips circulating through the Unconscious Thought Cloud of the World. Terms like “You are a homosexual,” “You floor me,” “You have no personality,” “Love on the internet is not for me,” “We have no relationship,” and with regard to all the world religions and their beliefs, the strident assertion that the next guy’s religious beliefs are not true.

ON USING THE POWER OF DISCRIMINATION

The thing about all these worldwide samskaras or ‘malspeak’ is that they unconsciously perpetuate the notion that I and other are two separate things. That anything different from my beliefs is false … when we all know, in our hearts, that beliefs are a mere mental sketch of the underlying Reality of All that Is. This underlying Reality is but One, not dual. There is One fabric of our Universe, One Truth, One experience of supreme joy, unconditional love, universal peace. All is One.

In our realization of this Oneness, the power of Discrimination can help or hinder. Swami Jnaneshvara (‘Swamij’) has an explanation from the writings of Patanjali; see …

LInk: “Yoga Sutras 1.5-1.11: Un-Coloring Your Thoughts,” by Swami Jnaneshvara … http://swamij.com/yoga-sutras-10511.htm… the section labeled “Five kinds of interfering thoughts”

Here is a paraphrase of this short section: There are five kinds of thought: knowing (whether our knowledge be correct or incorrect), imagining, the deep state of sleep, and memory. Each of these prevents us from realizing the Self. The neutral witness is not attached to these thoughts. Recognizing each, he cultivates only this one: correct knowing.

So, using the power of Discrimination to cultivate correct knowing is A-Ok, from the perspective of Advaita.

NOBLE QUALITIES: THEIR DEFILEMENT AND CLEANSING

For more on the faculty of Discrimination, see …

LInk: “A Treatise on the Paramis: From the Commentary to the Cariyapitaka,” by Acariya Dhammapala, translated from the Pali by Bhikkhu Bodhi, copyright 2005 … http://www.accesstoinsight.org/lib/authors/bodhi/wheel409.html ..

  • See the section on defilement of noble qualities … search term: (vii) What is their defilement (sa”nkilesa)?
  • See also the section on cleansing of noble qualities … search the term: (viii) What is their cleansing (vodaana)?

So, on the way to purity of beingness, there are many sorts of discrimination that must be set aside so as to move into the realm of Right Thinking.

HOW TO OVERCOME OUR DEMON ARMIES

Buddhist texts speak of our ‘Demon Armies.’ This is not just a colorful descriptive term; in fact, it’s an obnoxious reality in the lower planes of the dreamtime realm (the fourth dimension).

Image: “Mara failing to tempt Buddha from attaining Enlightenment and also failing to capture the Golden Throne as well. From a wall painting at a monastery in Penang, Malaysia,” by Hintha, 20 December 2010 … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Mara_demon_nat_and_Buddha.JPG ..

What with the Awakening and the incredible quality of the new Incoming Light, these days more and more folks are awakening to the wibbly-wobbly reality of the dreamtime realm, while they are still anchored in physical form here on Earth.

So it is good to consider the causes of our association with the Demon Armies, and to learn how we can disengage from them.

RECOGNIZING THE WORK OF DEMONS

Please see … Link: “Chapter 8: Recognizing the Work of Demons,” from “The Dharma Essentials for Cultivating Stopping and Contemplation,” by the Swei Dynasty Shramana Chih-i of T’ien-t’ai Mountain’s Dhyana Cultivation Monastery, translated into English by Dharmamitra (Taisho Tripitaka 1915) …  http://www.fodian.net/world/1915_09.html  (3) … Especially …

  • The section beginning: “Desire is the foremost …” and the following three sections, ending “… two [different] suchnesses.”

THE NON-DUAL STATE: MASTERY OF THE DISCRIMINATIVE FACULTY

The non-dual state (5) arrived at when we master the Discriminative Faculty is beautifully expressed in the Mul Mantra of the Sikhs. This state of beingness is not merely the domain of the Ascended Masters, but the birthright of all humankind. In this video, Snatam Kaur chants the Mul Mantra …

Link: “Mul Mantra,” by Snatam Kaur, from the album “Anand Bliss,” copyright 2006, Spirit Voyage Records … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MaaP-hrUDFI ..

Which reminds me of what Mooji said in his video on Christ Consciousness; to paraphrase: Christ is not a person, and not a man. Rather, his is a energy that is me, and is you. Here is the video …

Link: “Christ Consciousness,” by Moojiji, 6 January 2015 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E6nUnmSgmqI ..

So what’s to judge? What’s to call good or bad? All that Is, Is That. Each of us is That.

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

(2) About that, Gerardo Zamora wrote me on Facebook recently:

“I have been paying attention to how my heart opens and closes, open and closes…I find it so interesting when is open I feel so free, when it closes I feel I am protected…but of what? thx”

To which I responded (best guess): “Hi, Gerardo, Thanks for this interesting question, it really made me think! I’ve been paying attention the same way, and have been getting the same feeling…. When you ask that question, did you mean protected from what? Like, what causes it to close? I think maybe it’s that, either in this lifetime or in past lifetimes, we’ve learned to identify certain stimuli …. be they physical sensations or clair sensations … as dangerous.

“For instance, maybe our heart reacted to a certain stimulus by closing tight at a moment of great danger … say, when a sabre-toothed tiger attacked. Or when we met a fierce opponent in a war. Or in this lifetime, when something very threatening happened. Or like that.

“So now we’re carrying what they call ‘Soul wounding’ there. Which means, the same or similar stimuli will automatically cause our heart chakra to close. So for me, my practice right now is, as you said, to watch my heart opening and closing. And then to become aware of the stimuli that cause it to close. The theory being, that the awareness itself will break the chain of automatic reactions, and after a while, my heart will be more often open.”
