Reality Selection at the Edge of the Gravity Well

Beware of what you wish... for it will surely come true

We are all greater artists than we realize... Our ability to create our own reality is as tangible as our ability to create art. Like art, personal reality creation is a subjective process. One cannot separate the creator from the created. We are what we think. Consensual reality, simply put, is what we all (everyone & everything on the planet) agree is real. What our reality is comes down to what we agree to believe.

Some folks believe that our perception of the world is best described as some kind of a cosmic joke played on us by ancient creation tricksters. Our need to find some rationale for our existence is the set-up. Our attempts to explain our existence is the punch-line. The trickster tradition has been honored throughout time, from Coyote to the Merry Pranksters. This world view tends toward a playful experience of reality.

Others believe in a darker, more sinister version of reality. One that is more conspiratorial in nature. Secret chiefs pulling global strings to hasten the eschaton , or "End of the World" as we know it. It goes by many names... Dooms Day, Armageddon, 2012... Whatever the name, they all turn out the same. The various gloom and doom scenarios all seem to be fueled by a combination of uncertainty of the future and fear of what that future may bring.

Presently, a large percentage of the American public believes the future is what they see on television. If they saw it on Fox, it must be so. All the propaganda they have been spoon-fed by the networks seems to make sense... right? Bill O’Reilly wouldn't lie to us, would he? The networks wouldn’t put market share and profits over intelligent, responsible journalism, would they?

A few of us (more every day) believe our experience of the world is what we make it, both figuratively and literally. If we have the focused desire and the appropriate knowledge and artifacts at our disposal, we can create our own future. The Universe is necessarily perfect. Human earthlings, possessing free will, can put whatever spin on reality we desire, positive or negative. The choice, quite literally, is ours. The time, energy and quality we put into reality selection will, in part, determine the outcome.

What is imperative at this critical crossroad of our global civilization is the choice we make in creating our consensual reality. The responsibility of “tipping the scale” toward a peaceful, harmonious future, for all earthlings, falls upon the collective conscious among us. We must proceed from a place within ourselves of understanding, critical discernment and love for our self, our co-creators and the planet. Mass consumption of ideas generated by Madison Avenue is a paradigm that has outlived its usefulness.

What is called for is the gnostic approach to personal reality management. The power and the magic of self interaction with universe to co-create our near future. We can do this. We need to do this. The time has come on our small planet where we no longer consider race, nationality, gender or economic status, but what qualitative solution we bring to the present moment, and how to implement it. The future is here… We are it… We are on our own.

Earth Day 2009

For All

Ah to be alive
on a mid-September morn
fording a stream
barefoot, pants rolled up,
holding boots, pack on,
sunshine, ice in the shallows,
northern rockies.

Rustle and shimmer of icy creek waters
stones turn underfoot, small and hard as toes
cold nose dripping
singing inside
creek music, heart music,
smell of sun on gravel.

I pledge allegiance

I pledge allegiance to the soil
of Turtle Island,
and to the beings who thereon dwell
one ecosystem
in diversity
under the sun
With joyful interpenetration for all.

Former astronaut: Man not alone in universe


CNN covers X-Conference

(CNN) Earth Day may fall later this week, but as far as former NASA astronaut Edgar Mitchell and other UFO enthusiasts are concerned, the real story is happening elsewhere. Mitchell, who was part of the 1971 Apollo 14 moon mission, asserted Monday that extraterrestrial life exists, and that the truth is being concealed by the U.S. and other governments.

He delivered his remarks during an appearance at the National Press Club following the conclusion of the fifth annual X-Conference, a meeting of UFO activists and researchers studying the possibility of alien life forms.

Mankind has long wondered if we're "alone in the universe. [But] only in our period do we really have evidence. No, we're not alone," Mitchell said. "Our destiny, in my opinion, and we might as well get started with it, is [to] become a part of the planetary community. ... We should be ready to reach out beyond our planet and beyond our solar system to find out what is really going on out there." Mitchell grew up in Roswell, New Mexico, which some UFO believers maintain was the site of a UFO crash in 1947. He said residents of his hometown "had been hushed and told not to talk about their experience by military authorities." They had been warned of "dire consequences" if they did so.

But, he claimed, they "didn't want to go to the grave with their story. They wanted to tell somebody reliable. And being a local boy and having been to the moon, they considered me reliable enough to whisper in my ear their particular story." Roughly 10 years ago, Mitchell claimed, he was finally given an appointment at Pentagon to discuss what he had been told. An unnamed admiral working for the Joint Chiefs of Staff promised to uncover the truth behind the Roswell story, Mitchell said. The stories of a UFO crash "were confirmed," but the admiral was then denied access when he "tried to get into the inner workings of that process." The same admiral, Mitchell claimed, now denies the story.

"I urge those who are doubtful: Read the books, read the lore, start to understand what has really been going on. Because there really is no doubt we are being visited," he said.
"The universe that we live in is much more wondrous, exciting, complex and far-reaching than we were ever able to know up to this point in time."

A NASA spokesman denied any cover-up. "NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover-up about alien life on this planet or anywhere else -- period," Michael Cabbage said Monday. Debates have continued about what happened at Roswell. The U.S. Air Force said in 1994 that wreckage recovered there in 1947 was most likely from a balloon-launched classified government project.

Stephen Bassett, head of the Paradigm Research Group (PRG), which hosted the X-Conference, said that the truth about extraterrestrial life is being suppressed because it is politically explosive. "There is a third rail [in American politics], and that is the UFO question. It is many magnitudes more radioactive than Social Security ever dreamed to be," Bassett said

The Way of Tek-Gnostics: Think for Yourself! Revisited

Here is a little chestnut we appropriated from http://www.tfyqa.com/. Although segments of this video chronicles the mind control exploits of the last regime, the message is still apropos. The ending has a nice Kundalini activation sequence associated with circuit seven of the eight brain model...


This video was created by Ricci Piacentini.

Note: Curiously, just after we retrieved this video, the site was shut down…

The Way of Tek-Gnostics: The Path with a Heart

Somewhere ages and ages hence
two roads diverged in a wood…
And I took the one less traveled by…
and that has made all the difference.


- Robert Frost


Our navigation through life may be described as a journey and the choices we make through-out our life may be described as following a path. Although we may meet fellow travelers who offer advise… and encounter road signs along the way, the choice as to which way to go is ultimately our own. Ever-present is the question: Which fork in the road to take?

The Tek-Gnostic or experiential path is self-verifying in the sense that it unfolds within you as it unfolds without. This is the fundamental Tek-Gnostic relationship: self and matrix… observer and observed… spirit and space. The genesis of infinite universe, or that which cannot be named, is perfect. The fabric of our universe or Matrix as it is referred to in the ancient Tek-Gnostic texts, is necessarily perfect. This qualifier exemplifies the essential Gnostic principle that although universe resides in perfection, the dualistic universe we occupy is not perfect.

Therein lay the beauty, wonder and mystery of being an earthling. The Yaqui Sorcerer, Don Juan Matus illustrates this point eloquently:

Anything is one of a million paths. Therefore you must always keep in mind that a path is only a path; if you feel you should not follow it, you must not stay with it under any conditions. To have such clarity you must lead a disciplined life. Only then will you know that any path is only a path, and there is not affront, to oneself or to others, in dropping it if that is what your heart tells you to do. But your decision to keep on the path or to leave it must be free of fear or ambition.
I warn you. Look at every path closely and deliberately. Try it as many times as you think necessary. Then ask yourself, and yourself alone, one question. This question is one that only a very old person asks. My benefactor told me about it once when I was young, and my blood was too vigorous for me to understand it. Now I do understand it.

I will tell you what it is: Does this path have a heart?

All paths are the same, they lead nowhere. They are paths going through the bush, or into the bush. In my own life I could say I have traversed long, long paths, but I am not anywhere. My benefactor's question has meaning now. "Does this path have a heart?" One makes you strong; the other weakens you.

The trouble is nobody asks the question: and when a person finally realizes that they have taken a path without heart, the path is ready to kill them. At that point very few people stop to deliberate and leave the path.

A path without a heart is never enjoyable. You have to work hard even to take it. On the other hand, a path with heart is easy; it does not make you work at liking it.
For my part there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length.

And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly.


- Don Juan (Castaneda)

These sentiments reflect the importance of choosing carefully the path we decide upon. Our decisions must be “necessarily perfect” for us and no other. This understanding is the essence of the second doctrine of the Tek-Gnostic eight-fold path. It is available at our Electronic Mystery School, found here. As we traverse our miraculous journey toward discovery, we shall once again continue the conversation.

Heaven help the Fool





“Thus we play the fool with the time and the spirits of the wise sit in the clouds and mock us”


- William Shakespeare


The Fool, like the Zero with which he is associated in the deck of Tarot cards, is a paradoxical figure, asserting in the very act of negating: knowing nothing, yet wise – defenseless, yet a survivor – stripped of possessions, yet lacking for nothing – a rascal, and yet a spiritual being in his own right. In the role of the proverbial trickster, the fool is often depicted as world creator, while at the same time bringing about calamity and catastrophe.

Shakespeare was fascinated with Fools as characters with a free pass to tell the truth. While the king may cry “off with his head!” at misspoken words from his court physicians and counselors, the fool is praised in his lampooning of his royal highness. In modern times, fools of all kinds have made their way into cinema, ( think Forest Gump, as depicted in the movie of the same name starring Tom Hanks) not only making us laugh, but restoring a saving sense of simplicity in the midst of too much cleverness, complexity, and corruption.

One of the greatest living fools, Wavy Gravy, when asked why he dressed like a clown when he attended protests, replied… “If I dress like a clown, the cops won’t hit me”. Indeed, in these times of global crisis, who is the wise and who is the fool? The following quote from William Shakespeare says it all… “A fool thinks himself to be wise, but a wise man knows himself to be a fool”.

Enjoy the day and live it to its fullest…
