In the words of Terence McKenna

Inspiration left behind by the late Terence Mckenna:

“Nature loves courage. You make the commitment and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these teachers and philosophers who really counted, who really touched the alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering its a feather bed.”

“Human beings are co-partners with deity in the project of being. This is the basis of all magic.”

“You are a divine being. You matter, you count. You come from realms of unimaginable power and light, and you will return to those realms.”

“We are the inheritors of a million years of striving for the unspeakable.”

“We have to create culture, don’t watch TV, don’t read magazines, don’t even listen to NPR. Create your own roadshow. The nexus of space and time where you are now is the most immediate sector of your universe, and if you’re worrying about Michael Jackson or Bill Clinton or somebody else, then you are disempowered, you’re giving it all away to icons, icons which are maintained by an electronic media so that you want to dress like X or have lips like Y. This is shit-brained, this kind of thinking. That is all cultural diversion, and what is real is you and your friends and your associations, your highs, your orgasms, your hopes, your plans, your fears. And we are told ‘no’, we’re unimportant, we’re peripheral. ‘Get a degree, get a job, get a this, get a that.’ And then you’re a player, you don’t want to even play in that game. You want to reclaim your mind and get it out of the hands of the cultural engineers who want to turn you into a half-baked moron consuming all this trash that’s being manufactured out of the bones of a dying world.”

“We have been to the moon, we have charted the depths of the ocean and the heart of the atom, but we have a fear of looking inward to ourselves because we sense that is where all the contradictions flow together.”

“Nobody is smarter than you are. And what if they are? What good is their understanding doing you?”

“Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.”

“If the words ‘life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness’ don’t include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn’t worth the hemp it was written on.”

“You have to take seriously the notion that understanding the universe is your responsibility, because the only understanding of the universe that will be useful to you is your own understanding.”

“The cost of sanity in this society, is a certain level of alienation”

“Western civilization is a loaded gun pointed at the head of this planet.”

“We live in condensations of our imagination”

“It is not easy to measure the ocean, but we can be measured by it, confront it, and be in it.”

“The apocalypse is not something which is coming. The apocalypse has arrived in major portions of the planet and it’s only because we live within a bubble of incredible privilege and social insulation that we still have the luxury of anticipating the apocalypse.”

“If you don’t have a plan, you become part of somebody else’s plan.”

“Nothing comes unannounced, but many can miss the announcement. So it’s very important to actually listen to your own intuition rather than driving through it.”

“It’s clearly a crisis of two things: of consciousness and conditioning. We have the technological power, the engineering skills to save our planet, to cure disease, to feed the hungry, to end war; But we lack the intellectual vision, the ability to change our minds. We must decondition ourselves from 10,000 years of bad behavior. And, it’s not easy.”

“We tend to disempower ourselves. We tend to believe that we don’t matter. And in the act of taking that idea to ourselves we give everything away to somebody else, to something else.”

“I’ll try to be around and about. But if I’m not, then you know that I’m behind your eyelids, and I’ll meet you there”

Dr Fred Alan Wolf talks Quantum Physics on Thinking Allowed

Quantum Physics. What is it? I hear it mentioned in spiritual circles constantly. I know the famous atheist Richard Dawkins sees it as a new crutch for spiritual folk to turn to when cornered by the prickly rational sorts. A get out clause, a new age myth loosely based on science. It gives credibility to any spiritual argument because it is technically scientific, but really based on nothing and completely unexplainable. In this, I find its vital element. The quest to explain the unexplainable will surely fascinate humans at a higher state of consciousness until the end of our days. The shamans are there, but in our concrete boxes, we can only seek crumbs of understanding from people like Fred Alan Wolf, a man I could watch talking all day long.

Here is Dr Wolf on a strange talk show, but he lights it up as he talks of a fascination in magic and a ‘spiritual universe’.

The meeting of the spiritual world with the scientific is a fascinating connection being made in these times. The rational mind meets a concept of infinite potential. I first saw Dr Wolf on a documentary about the Dalai Lama, where he was briefing the Dalai Lama on the advancements in Quantum Physics. A field I know that Tibetan Buddhism is very interested in and sees many parallels with its own teaching.

Dr Wolf talks with Mr Mishlove about philosophy and the spiritual worlds relation to modern science.  What is the soul?

Thinking Allowed (http://www.thinkingallowed.com/)

Is an in-depth independent TV show, that interviews some of the world’s top intellectuals.  For me, it is becoming the education I would have liked to received at school or university, if I’d have had any idea what was going on back then.  Someone should have told me this!  I am now getting this education via youtube.  An enlightening show.

Watching the Wheels, Mind Games, #9 Dream – John Lennon

“People say I’m crazy doing what I’m doing, Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin, When I say that I’m o.k. they look at me kind of strange, Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,
People say I’m lazy dreaming my life away, Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me, When I tell that I’m doing fine watching shadows on the wall, Don’t you miss the big time boy you’re no longer on the ball?
I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll, No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go,
People asking questions lost in confusion, Well I tell them there’s no problem, Only solutions, Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I’ve lost my mind, I tell them there’s no hurry… I’m just sitting here doing time,
I’m just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round, I really love to watch them roll, No longer riding on the merry-go-round, I just had to let it go……..”

“Love is the answer.. love is the flower, you’ve gotta let it grow……..Yes is the answer, and you know that for sure, yes is surrender, you’ve got to let it go…..Keep on playing those mind games together, raising the spirit, of peace and love.  llllllloooooooovvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvvveeeeeeeeee, I want you to make love, not war, I know you’ve heard it before.”

…….soooo long ago,,,,,so long ago………….,,was it just a dream…………seems so real to me,,,,,,,,,,,on the river of love,……..the spirit dance was unfolding…..I thought I could feel….feeellll……feeeeelllllllllll.,,,’Ah! Bowakwa Pousse Pousse’…………….XXXXX

Choose your truth and love itX
