How “Real” Is Your Metaphysics?- Part 1

HealingHandsKwan Yin – How do you experience the practical side of your spiritual nature? Do you feel that you apply your metaphysical principles to your life in a direct and empowering way? How far are you willing to go? And what could be holding you back still, if anything?

Let’s take a look at the following statement, for instance:

“Everything is already inside of You.
You are already inside of Everything.”

Many may be aware of this simple yet impactful bit of knowledge, as it is often used to explain away a lot of different notions of esoteric and cosmic studies. But most do not know what to do with it or have no idea how to apply it to their lives in a practical way and on a consistent basis.

To tell you the truth — and it might not make me very popular in your opinion — I personally do not feel that the larger community of esoteric seekers that is out there actually welcomes the practical application of metaphysics. At least, not all of it, and yet metaphysics is an all or nothing type of deal.

As those with some experience under their belt will know, it can be quite the trip to step away from theoretical words in a book and into the full-blown practice of the metaphysical adventure of personal ascension while remaining a neutral witness to your necessary choices impacting and forever changing your daily life.

I Can Change

Once on the practical path, change will become a key factor in your life, for a while at least, until you are finished re-arranging your entire way of being and your universe around you. This is exactly the type of change that most seekers, who tend to keep themselves entangled in the theory of it all, truly are wary of.

Evil Is Weak

goodPaul Rosenberg – For clarity, let’s define “evil” as “the willful abuse of other humans.”

By this definition, any person or persons who purposely manipulate other humans to their own ends – anything from tricking them into a bad business deal to extorting money from them to murdering them – are engaging in evil.

Evil Almighty?

From television, politicians, and endless “authorities,” we learn that evil is pre-eminent. God may be supremely powerful, but he’s powerful somewhere far away; Satan is powerful here. We can slide into evil with ease, but being good is difficult. Western man is convinced that darkness is stronger than light, whether he defines it in religious terms or secular terms.

The fear-sellers, we must admit, have won the day.

This primacy of fear and darkness is necessary to authority of course; without it, how would we be driven into their arms?

So, when someone comes along and calls evil a weakling, we think they’re a bit crazy, and maybe we worry that the devil might notice and chop them down.

Fundamental Weakness

Carrying such fears around every day, people seldom realize that evil is weak. And not weak temporarily or in a certain situation, but fundamentally weak. Here’s why: Evil does not produce.

Balsamic Moon in Aries: release, dream

Aspect of the Aeon Sophia (Wisdom): Chinnamasta, Goddess Who Expands the Mind, Shodashi, Goddess Who Aligns With Our Highest and Best

Aspect of the Aeon Thelete (Will/Desire): Ian, God of the East

Skill: bridge out of the old and into the new

True Alignments: overcoming limits of time/space/distance, avoiding danger or pitfalls, depth of heart, true service, honoring nature, respect for others, going against the status quo when it is against what is good and true, flexible, leaps of faith, letting go of the past, overcoming, uniting, the shelter of love, building the future, continuity, solving something

Catalysts for Change:  avoidance, flimsy/superficial/lacking depth, service to self only, emotional pitfalls, exaggerated ideas of self, delusion, mistakes or errors (they really aren’t mistakes, they were steps in the process of learning), going with the status quo when it is against what is good and true, inability to adapt/change/innovate, seeking danger, twisting things up (especially reality or the truth in order to get one’s way), separation

Sabian Symbol for the Solar-Lunar Month and Year: “the magic carpet of Oriental imagery’ (transcending circumstances and old paradigms)

A primary dynamic of bridging from one place (a mindset, attitude, feeling, time, situation, perceived failure, fear, worry, etc.) to another is in effect.  Venus is discharging the energetic of “a bridge being built across a gorge.”  The “magic carpet” kicks in the afterburners to take us there.

So it is a good idea to envision what or how you would prefer things to be, and focus less on how they actually are at this moment.  It’s about “going” somewhere or being or feeling better.  It means a change is underway – a transition from one way to another.

Airlines Rack Up Huge Profits As Passengers Face Shrinking Seats And Rising Fees

airlinesJonathan Turley – We have been following the increasing lines at security checkpoints in our airports due to budget cuts and TSA incompetence while airlines pile on extra charges for passengers while reducing both room and comfort to the level of cattle cars. As passengers are treated with level more regard than cattle by TSA and the airlines, the airlines themselves are racking up huge profits. Indeed, the most recent report shows that U.S. airlines had a combined $25.6 billion in net earnings last year. Yet, the airlines successfully lobbied to kill a bill in Congress that would have required such things as the publication of leg room on seats.

The after-tax profit for 25 airlines with scheduled passenger service was more than three times the $7.5 billion reported in 2014. Not only that but average fuel prices are 35% lower than the prior year. This is the sixth consecutive years of profits for the industry.

Remember how the airlines justified those baggage fees on fuel costs? Well, they are not rescinding them. Indeed, baggage fees rose to $3.8 billion last year and reservation change fees totaled $3 billion.

Hundreds Of Pages of TTIP Agreement Leaked

Derrick Broze – Greenpeace has leaked hundreds of pages of the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) which show that negotiations may be in danger of collapsing.

TTIPAccording to newly leaked documents, the United States and the European Union are divided on certain agreements to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP). After releasing the documents, Greenpeace Netherlands stated:

These documents make clear the scale and scope of the trade citizens of the United States and the European Union are being asked to make in pursuit of corporate profits. It is time for the negotiations to stop, and the debate to begin.

Should we be able to act when we have reasonable grounds to believe our health and wellbeing is at risk, or must we wait until the damage is done?

The TTIP has been negotiated in secret and the only information available to the public has come from unofficial leaks. “Now that we can see the actual texts, the EU negotiators have nowhere left to hide,” John Hilary, the executive director of War on Want, told The Independent. “The gloves are off, and they know they are in for a proper fight.”

The Independent reports that the documents indicate the U.S. is attempting to change regulation in Europe to lower environmental protections, consumer rights, and other policies important to EU citizens. The documents show that trade representatives on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean have experienced “irreconcilable” differences that could possibly interfere with negotiations.
