After reading this that I posted this afternoon:
[THE NEW ATLANTIS: Master Plan Of The Ages from SOTN . . . I haven’t had a chance to read this almost book length article, and I invite you to check it out. Looks to be good . . . ]
. . . I found that going as far back as 2009, when a wrote the following paper, a portion of which is presented below, I developed some very different ideas than those people writing at SOTN. As some of you may know, I did some editing for them, but we developed a difference of opinion on the presentation of their ideas, and I stopped my editing help. I’ve tried very hard since then to keep an open mind towards their work, but with this presentation today, which in effect seems quite Orwellian to me, I cannot keep quiet. As I have begun saying, the truth is simple, not complex— and always easy to understand. As I read their article, I became more and more confused. What are they actually telling us?
I invite you to read this small portion of my informal paper to compare the difference in our thinking. Let me say that I use the word informal, because my paper was only delivered once and has never been published. When I wrote it, I did not annotate it properly, because it really made little difference. At that time, I was so very excited at what I was discovering about quantum theory, the understanding of which was the basis of my healing, and I was anxious to share what I was learning. Had I realized that I would quote it time and time again, I would have taken the time to annotate my sources properly. Still, if it would become necessary, I have all the materials and I suppose I could very laboriously reconstruct it, although I must say that I am loathe now to do so. I, therefore, ask forgiveness of those authors who may be unmentioned or not properly quoted.
The part of my paper that I’m presenting to you comes largely from spiritually-oriented material and much of it was inspired by the movie, What the Bleep Do We Know. After having seen the movie, I remember calling my therapist, whom I was no longer seeing, and her response was, “Yes, I’m asking all my clients to see it!” (Before I left her, she had told me I was fortunate to be warehoused on drugs for all those years, because only recently was real healing available for people like me, and that without the drugs, I probably would have gone insane. Cross my heart and hope to die, those were her words.)
The other fact that Western medicine doesn’t begin to understand is that there is always, always an emotional element to disease. They can talk about Alzheimer’ cures all they want, but there is an emotional aspect to it, which I discovered, and unless it is addressed, I think a cure is impossible. The same for bi-polar disorder, which I think dogs could help to heal — at least, that was my small experience with it. The same with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome. These last three are all energy diseases of our time, and while I’ve had no experience with dogs in this regard, I have cured these lat two rather easily, and actually, as I consider the idea, I think dogs could also prove extremely helpful!
No one will listen to me. I’ve given up! A fine hospital in Durham, NC started a department of ‘spiritual’ healing, or something like that. I called them, and they had zero interest in my words: They’d already set up their double-blind study. . . This would never, ever give them an answer, having nothing to do with spirituality, in which everything is connected, but they weren’t ready to listen.
Temporary cures may be available by cutting out parts of our bodies, taking drugs, etc., but the basic cause hasn’t gone away. There is always a mind/body/emotional connection. Heller Work’s motto is ‘If you have an issue, it’s in the tissue’, and I just spent over two years learning the truth of that statement and removing the trauma stored in my body. The reason is quite simple, so let me say it again: Nothing is separate! Everything is connected! Most are willing to accept false cures from Western medicine, mainly, I think, because they live in fear and will accept such a life. I do not judge them. It is what it is. THIS IS, AFTER ALL, A FREE CHOICE PLANET.
The people at SOTN seem to tout the efforts of Francis Bacon, rather than understanding that he was one of those very instrumental in creating the deep divisions that have caused so much trouble for humanity. Descartes is never even mentioned!!! I have never been sure about St. Germaine; I thought he was actually Shakespeare, but this is a small issue compared to my basic disagreement. Regarding the fact that Germaine is an Ascended Master, my question now would have to be: an ascended master of which planet? It is my understanding that we are all here learning to be Ascended Masters of Light, and so for me a logical question follows: indeed, how it is possible that we have created any Ascended Masters from Earth. Is there any proof one way or the other?
But where are Ascended Masters actually from, because I have never heard that they are from the Earth, so why is St. Germaine regarded as being in charge of our planet —especially if he is tied in with Francis Bacon — which is only now in the process of ascending out of the dark — and from what I see, we actually are doing it, day by day in a very plodding but steady fashion. Still, we are doing it, and we are going to succeed!
Remember, we are the ones we are waiting for!
So why St.Germaine’s importance, except to keep us down and thinking we need someone else’s help? Is he perhaps a ‘plant’ to confuse the issue? Years ago as I was learning, all I heard about was the money he had for us. Back then, this sounded just great, but not any more! Money is of no value, and we need to begin to understand this! And where is SOTN getting all this information about which they speak as if it is gospel?
My background and personal experience calls me to seriously question this post and to express my own personal truth, for whatever its value to others. Everyone has a choice, and you may agree with some of what I say, but not all, or you may agree with none of it, but I can tell you, what I’m sharing here is very, very simple, so that you shouldn’t have any trouble in deciding. ~J 🙂
Here then is that portion of my paper which I believe expresses best my biggest disagreement with those at SOTN (I’ve added much BOLDFACE today to help make my point clear :
[…] Following my therapist’s suggestion I had already read the book called Molecules of Emotion written by Candice Pert, a professor at Georgetown University, who also appears in the film, What the Bleep Do We Know. [Candice has recently died, and some think it was not a natural death.] She has documented the fact that our feelings create our body chemistry—not the other way around as we are led to believe. When we understand and consciously change our ‘bad’ feelings, we no longer need drugs. The implications of quantum theory concerning the healing of all disease are huge!
(The actual presentation had many slides, three of which I’ve imported here as photos.)
Dr. Joe Dispenza reflects—and I paraphrase, “Too many people are hypnotized by their environment—through the media, through television, through people who are paid to create unrealistic ideals that everybody struggles to become, and that no one can actually become—in terms of physical appearance and definitions of beauty and valor. Even though these are all illusions, most people surrender to them and live their lives with the idea that they are much less than they really are.”
Ramtha suggests that we live as we do because until now we have not had sufficient intelligent knowledge about our “beautiful selves” and how we work from the inside out. She suggests that we have addictions because until now we haven’t understood that there
is something better—we have never dreamed of anything better because no one ever taught us there is something better to dream!
A LOOK AT THE INFLUENCE OF THE NEWTONIAN WORLD VIEW
Some part of the way we are now living seems to come initially from the beginnings of agriculture around 8000 B.C.E. when the dominator, or patriarchal view, appears to have developed, perhaps as an attempt to reduce the awesomeness of life to manageable proportions.
Then, in the last few hundred years, Newtonian physics seems to have fostered in Western culture the paradigm that we are alone in the universe, that our lives do not matter, that we are merely parts of a great machine, utterly separate one from the other. A paradigm is the unconscious belief system of a culture. We live and breathe these beliefs, and we think and interact according to them. It seems our present belief system has many roots in Newtonian theory—and it is beginning to crumble. [Am I crazy, or is SOTN trying to tell us this is wrong, that Bacon’s way is ‘the’ way?]
Before the 16th century when the Newtonian ideas began to develop, God and Science were humanity’s two grand approaches to The Truth. Both are searching for the truth about us and about our universe; both are seeking answers to the Great Questions. They are two sides of the coin. In the beginning, however, science and spirit were not treated as separate entities.
Our earliest known civilization, ancient Sumer (3800 B.C.E.) saw the pursuit of understanding the world around us and the spiritual world as the same thing. There was a god of astrology, a god of horticulture and god of irrigation. The temple priests were the scribes and technologists investigating these fields of knowledge.
The Sumerians understood the precession of the equinoxes, the mutating of plants to produce fruits and vegetables, and an irrigation system that fed the entire ‘fertile crescent’.
The world that people believed in before the Scientific Revolution was alive. In China, people saw the world as a dynamic interplay of energetic forces that are constantly in flux. Nothing is fixed and static; everything is flowing, changing or forever being born.
People in the West believed that the world at large expressed the will and intelligence of a Divine Creator. Its component parts were linked in a “Great Chain of Being,” stretching from God through angels to man, animals, plants and minerals, all of which had their proper place in a living whole. Nothing stood alone; every part was related to every other part.
Native peoples on every continent lived in harmonious relationship with their surroundings-—the animals and plants, the sun and rain, the living Earth. They often expressed this by finding “spirits” in mountains, streams and groves of trees, and based their religion and their science on learning to live in a way that pleased those spirits of the Earth and Sky.
[THIS IS WHY INDIGENOUS AND BLACKS HAVE BEEN GENOCIDED. WE WERE NEVER TO LEARN THIS! WHAT WE SEE TODAY IS A PEOPLE WHOSE CULTURE AND CONNECTION TO THE EARTH HAS BEEN DESTROYED, LIVING IN POVERTY ON JUNK FOOD — SINCE JUNK FOOD, FILLED WITH GMO MODIFIED SUGER, KILLS THEIR PAIN —AND IT IS ALL THEY CAN AFFORD. MANY ‘WHITES’ ARE NOW IN THAT SITUATION, ARE THEY NOT? ~J ]
The goal of science in all these cultures was to gain knowledge in order to harmonize human life with the great forces of the natural world and the transcendent powers that all cultures sensed behind the physical world. People wanted to know how nature works, not in order to control and dominate it, but to live in accord with its ebb and flow. As the physicist and philosopher Fritjof Capra wrote in The Turning Point, “From the time of the ancients the goals of science had been wisdom, understanding the natural order and living in harmony with it. Science was pursued “for the glory of God,” or, as the Chinese put it, “to follow the natural order” and “flow in the current of the Tao.”
All this changed radically, starting in the middle of the 16th century.
In 1543, Nicolas Copernicus had the audacity to challenge the Church, considered the supreme power, and the Bible. Then came Galileo who is known as the “father of modern science” because he was the first to base his work on the two pillars that have characterized the scientific enterprise ever since: empirical observation and the use of mathematics. Rene Descartes, the 17th-century French philosopher and mathematician widened the gap between science and spirit, saying, “Nothing is included in the concept of body that belongs to the mind,” and, “nothing in that of mind that belongs to the body.”
And thus the axe fell. The same coin (reality) was split down the middle. If God and Science were having a divorce, Descartes was the lawyer who made it palatable. While Descartes believed that mind and matter were both created by God, he viewed them as completely different and separate. The human mind was a center of intelligence and reason, designed to analyze and understand. The proper domain of science was the material universe—nature—which he saw as a machine that operated by laws that could be formulated mathematically. This included not only inanimate objects, but all objects. He wrote, “I consider the human body as a machine.” The separation of mind from body that Descartes made into a fundamental rule of science has caused us endless problems.
Francis Bacon, a British philosopher/scientist, was also very instrumental in establishing the scientific method. Of course, this method has resulted in tremendous advances for humanity, from the pure delight of greater understanding of nature to improvements in health, engineering, agriculture, and so on.
As Fritjof Capra has pointed out, however, Bacon viewed the scientific enterprise in terms that were “often outright vicious.” Nature had to be “hounded in her wanderings,” “bound into service,” and “made a slave”. The job of the scientist was to “torture nature’s secrets from her.” Unfortunately, this attitude that sought to extract knowledge in order to control and dominate nature (described as a “her”) has become a guiding principle of Western science. Bacon summed it up in a phrase we all learned in school: “Knowledge is Power.”
Newton, like Descartes, saw the world as a machine, operating in three-dimensional space, with events (like the movements of the stars or the falling of apples) taking place in time. Matter was solid, with tiny particles at its core; these particles, as well as giant objects like planets, moved according to laws of nature, such as the force of gravity. Newton’s linking together of two such disparate events, the falling of an apple and the motion of a planet, was utterly revolutionary. The linkage was mediated by a “force”—in this case, by gravity.
This mechanistic approach was soon applied to all the sciences:
astronomy, chemistry, biology, and so on. With few variations, it’s the world we all were brought up to believe in.
As revolutionary as Newton’s and his colleagues’ ideas were, however, they never questioned the church’s teachings. As if to prepare the ages to come against the materialistic philosophy that would dominate Western thought in the name of Newtonian mechanics, Sir Isaac wrote, “Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors.”
Later generations of scientists found they had no need of God or spirituality and saw the world as a machine. They proclaimed anything unseen and not measurable to be fantasy and delusion, often becoming as dogmatic as the Church authority. The followers of Darwin provided the final stroke in the materialist triumph. Not only is there no God, and thus no creative intelligence guiding the unfolding of intergalactic life, but we ourselves, once at the center of the world, are nothing but random mutations, carriers of DNA’s relentless quest for more, in a meaningless universe.
New scientific information is appearing practically every day that cannot be explained using the classical Newtonian model. Quantum physics seem to provide the answers we are looking for. Relativity theory, quantum mechanics, the influence of thoughts and emotions on our bodies, so-called “anomalies” like ESP, mental healing, remote viewing (now in use by the military) would include all these phenomena in a more comprehensive theory of how the world works.
It’s not just that the old model is insufficient to answer the questions the new research poses. An even more serious problem is that the old model has not done nearly enough to free human life of suffering, poverty, injustice and war. In fact, a good case could be made that many of these problems have grown worse because of the mechanical model that has long dominated our way of experiencing the world. While governments and politicians seem bent on controlling us, and enriching themselves through eternal war—with the strong possibility, underneath the media’s radar, humanity seems to be shifting to the new paradigm, one that says our lives are important, everything we do, say, feel, and think has an effect on all of creation. Many are devoting their very lives to bring about this change.
Often I have considered why all this knowledge is coming to us now, at this critical juncture in history, and I have concluded that it is no accident. I believe we are being given the tools to bring ourselves through the rough times we all sense are ahead, although, as always, we are being given a choice. Many of you have heard me speak of Blessed Unrest, the name of a book written by Paul Hawken about the largest democratic social movement in the history of our planet in which each of us in our own way is involved on a daily basis in an effort to save our species and help our planet. […] . . . again, I wrote this all back in 2009. and there was so much more for me to learn, but these basic ideas haven’t really changed, just increased in understanding.
