Einstein’s Hidden and Momentous Gift to Humanity

What we explore below is a set of radically different ideas to assist in accelerating and smooting the evolution of mankind. Few now have the courage to be open to this.  Most have more getting fed up to experience given their identification with the destructive “solutions” offered by ego and society before they might open to such ideas. It has been shown quite conclusively in studies completed decades ago that the square root of 1% of the population has the ability to enhance peace and shift collective consciousness.  When as few as about 9,000 people fully awaken, humanity will awaken.  Nine thousand people: that is the approximate square root of 1% of the world population.  There are now many pretenders, but few truly awakened.  It can be done.  Such is the power of love. *** The Greater, Hidden Gift of Einstein, and What He and the Scientific World Miss What is shared here is a simple invitation, for those who are ready for it, to expand your consciousness as a way of moving beyond whatever problems may have been stopping you from awakening yourself. Early on, Albert Einstein knew he was different.  He didn’t fit in.  Had “too many interests,” and was often thinking about things nobody around him could relate to.  As a youth, for example, he dreamed of what it would be like to ride a beam of light. Well into his 20s, enough...

Specific Examples of Mind-Numbing New Age Writings by a Best-Selling Author

What follows below are excerpts from a book published 3 years ago by an author who has written several best-selling books. I do not offer the name of this author here. This is not about finger pointing, but simply offered as an example of how destructively polluted New Age books can be…and generally are. Virtually all the pop psychology/spiritual/self-help best-sellers are a mushed up mess that is self-contradicting, confusing, filler-loaded crap.  Sure, some pure, beautiful thoughts are emphasized, yet there is so much nonsensical, confusing and contradicting junk in virtually all these books that readers get bored or overwhelmed, often in the first several pages of reading. Any of these books could be condensed to a few pages of juicy content.  But the publisher cannot charge you $19.95 for that. All pictures on this page are parodies.  As long as many are slurping it up as helpful stuff, I will be pointing out an alternative view to those who are receptive to hearing it. When this author’s first best-seller came out in the mid-90s, I was entranced. And it was really good stuff. By the third book, it was nose-diving in quality and readability….and over time became more and more destructive, mind-boggling content. Over the years, I have met and talked with dozens of people with whom this author crossed paths in a more than quick/casual way. To put it gently,...

Favorite Charles Bukowski Quotations

Charles Bukowski was to expressing the challenges of life directly what George Carlin was to brutally direct—sometimes dark—comedy. I discovered his work many years ago when at the peak of my anger and frustration. Reading his clear expression of his feelings was, for me,  a vent of sorts, provoking me to feel a little less alone. Included below are some personal interjections from me. Which of these might be striking for you? . This is one I have used in several of the blog posts on this site.   It says a lot.                           I got this idea in my early teens, before I read him,                                  was surrounded by such people. Maybe for a lot of us, we have to go at least a little crazy in order to claim sanity.  And when we are, from our perspective, quite sane, we get to be completely OK that lots of people think we are crazy. I take the second line here as an intent in my work, my art.   There is beauty in simple brevity.  Often, more words = confusion. and consider that as long as we are looking at it as a war, there is no final victory. and maybe the...

Finale Minute? Epiphany: Must Awakening Be So Complicated and Difficult?

Saw this beautiful angel figure at a guesthouse where I stayed in Ecuador. She is rolling the dice.  Ego and society tell us that awakening and becoming enlightened must continue to be tortuous and complicated…way too much to attain in this lifetime. As long as we think this must be so, it is. “Apocalypse” means “lifting of the veils.”  Maybe for most of us, the last veil to be lifted—the last illusion that we see through as foolish to see as true—is that it all must be a massive struggle. Again, consider: As long as we are fighting for anything, as long as we are resisting anything, we create deep mud on our own path. As long as we are waiting for or pursuing something outside of us to save us, we will not awaken. Society tells us that if we do not fight back, if we do not resist injustice, if we do not trade insult for insult, if we do not control others, that we are sissies and will be controlled by them. Could it be that sometimes the most powerful response is to simply disengage from the thought, the situation or the abusive/disrespecting person in front of us? When will now be the right time for you to… You can trust the angel of inner guidance and intuition be your guide. The process of awakening is not something...

Minute Epiphany? 6 — Does Ego Ever Die?

The imaginary egoic mind—not at all who you truly are (Nothing/Everything)—resists all of the earlier ideas in this series because to truly awaken is the death of the illusion of ego. How is ego vaporized?  “It never is.  Because it does not exist.  It only appears to exist because we have fed it, so there is no vaporization, no disappearing, in fact, because it never existed in the first place. And the illusion appears to be a sadistic and masochistic little gremlin that does not want to die. Imaginary ego only seems to exist as we feed it with destructive thought, deed and affiliation. The apparent vaporization of the illusion of ego will coincide with the vaporization of all our duplicitious institutions which are merely reflections of it. Letting go of the egoic mind is not releasing who you are; it is releasing what you are not, what is illusory. Yes, you can do it.  And in this lifetime.  But only if you trust your true self, only if you allow your heart to be your guide and your mind to be your willing slave. It takes practice and awareness.  Because it appears that this little nut case does not want to die and will put up a fight to appear to stay alive. How does it feel when you say this out loud or in a whisper, then...
