Here are some thoughts that struck me today. Nothing new, but always fun to talk about:

The Perception of Time

What keeps us trapped in the Matrix is our perception of linear time. It’s not the physical world itself that holds us back–that’s just the development environment we work in–it’s the perception (belief) that we are perpetually advancing forward through time, thus aging closer to our potential death dates without any control over our own mortality.

In other words, we are enslaved by our own indoctrinated feelings of existential angst. Without the experience of “seeing behind the curtain”, people can only know what they see right in front of their eyes–the immediate modern culture imposed upon them by society–the unwritten social rules and routines that turn the magic of life into a linear rat race.

What Kills Human Beings?

A person’s health degrades according to their choices, habits, and beliefs. Like water from a river constantly skimming over a rock, we erode ourselves with our negative patterns.

For example, I know a man who is 61 years old, overweight, and stricken with disease, ready to drop dead at any moment, and yet I know another man who is 68 years old and has the health and vitality of a man in his 20’s. So what sets these two men apart?

The 61-year-old lacks of love with women, has no passion for his work (it’s just a way to pay the bills), eats nothing but junk food, gambles frequently, has had the same group of friends his entire adult life, watches TV in his spare time, and has no real desire to live.

The 68-year-old has been happily married for many years, loves the work that he does, eats healthy food from his own garden, reads books and literature in his spare time (doesn’t even own a TV), meets new people all the time, and has an absolute lust for life.

I’m not making this comparison to judge these people–neither lifestyle is right or wrong–I’m simply laying out the facts to provide an objective example. So who do you think will end up living longer? Of course, anything can happen in life, but putting extraordinary circumstances aside, the answer is obvious that it will probably be the 68-year-old.

Is Death a Choice?

People live exactly as long as they believe is possible for them. This belief is based on several factors, such as their worldview, lifestyle, past experiences, priorities, habits, and levels of mental, spiritual, physical, and emotional development. Technology and medicine certainly come into play as well, but I don’t think they’re as much of a factor, because healthy people simply don’t need help from external sources to take care of themselves.

Hollywood Romance vs. Unconditional Love

In Hollywood movies and TV shows we see the same stereotypical romantic stories told over and over again. As children, we are shown Disney movies involving princes and princesses chasing each other all around–the lure of forbidden love. It is drilled into our minds that we need to be “in love” to be happy and successful. But is it the relationship itself that makes two people happy, or is each person already in harmony by themselves?

As long as we try to compare ourselves to other people, whether it’s our parents or peers, we’re relinquishing our own individuality. While we all share the same world stage, each one of us is here to play our own game. This perception will help you to remain objective while pursuing your personal endeavors as well as dealing with others along the way.

Is Free Energy Technology for the Masses Finally Here?

Earlier this month, HopeGirl posted an announcement on her blog fully disclosing the details of a new initiative that would allow people to build their own QEG (quantum energy generator). All they would need to do is download the QEG plans, which have been released open-source, purchase the required parts, and assemble the device themselves.

Of course, anyone who has been following the story of free energy technology knows that it’s been a long and arduous battle to release it to the public on a mass scale, but this claim appears to be legitimate, as it’s backed with extensive evidence proving its reality.

Obviously, most people do not possess the technical knowledge to build a QEG on their own, but this is a major step forward in making it possible for those who do to begin producing them on a mass scale for others to purchase.

Just like any other technology, in time the design will be improved and innovated, and soon enough—barring any government interference—each one of us will be able to purchase our own QEG online or in a store, just like any other modern appliance.

So what does this mean for the average person? It means that we will no longer have to be chained to gas and electric utility companies to power our homes. We won’t have to submit to legislators pushing Agenda 21 bills, such as the Smart Grid/Smart Meter initiative, and we’ll be able to take our power back as sovereign citizens.

This is all still in the works, and a long way off from being in every home as conveniently as a washing machine, but the potential is looming on the horizon, and that is what makes this so exciting. Even if we have to wait another five to ten years for it to happen (which is probably a realistic timeline), at least there is hope for greater progress in the future.

The Parable of the Sitting Man

The other day in the shower (always the best place for inspiration), I posed this question to myself: What is a simple but powerful example that demonstrates how one person can change the world? Stories are always excellent teaching tools, so I immediately thought of an idea and started writing it out in my head. Here is what I came up with:

The Parable of the Sitting Man

For thousands of years, the man did not move. He sat on the beach Indian style, meditating with his eyes closed, as the waves crashed along the shore. He sat far enough away from the shoreline as not to be splashed by the waves, but near enough to remain connected with the current of the sea.

For thousands of years, the man had not eaten a bite or drank a sip. It was not necessary, since he was fulfilled by the energy of the sun. He had not read a book, spoken a word, or ever gone out on a date. His place was on the beach, and he did not require anything else.

For thousands of years, the regimes of mankind rose and fell, billions of people came and went, technology evolved, and a never-ending stream of new thoughts, trends, and philosophies were dreamed up and manifested, yet the man remained as still as ever, connected with the universal pulse of nature.

One day, a boy ran up to the man, asking for his help. He said his little brother had fallen off the rocks into the ocean, and that he nor his brother knew how to swim. The man did not move a muscle. The boy yelled at the man and pulled on his arm as he pleaded for help, but still, the man did not respond.

Eventually, the boy gave up his plea for help, and ran out to the rocks, overlooking where his brother was still struggling. As he saw his brother’s head disappear under the water, the boy gasped and yelled his brother’s name, but when he heard no reply, he knew what he had to do.

The boy jumped into the water after his brother, and although the boy struggled with the waves at first, he quickly overcame the current, grabbing hold of his brother and dragging him to the shore. He helped resuscitate him, and soon enough the two brothers were able to make it back to their family’s home, as if nothing out of the ordinary had occurred.

Ten years later, the boy, now a young man, was 18 years old, and one day he went down to the beach, curious if the sitting man was still there. To his surprise, he found the man sitting in the same spot that he’d seen him in all those years ago, as radiant and focused as ever.

The young man, unable to believe his eyes, went up to the sitting man, and even though the man did not react to his presence, the young man told him the story of his life, and how he saved his brother in the sea all those years ago.

While he had always resented the man for not helping him, he realized that by being forced to save his brother himself, he not only learned how to swim, but discovered true courage and responsibility within himself, and for this, he was grateful that the sitting man did not lend a helping hand all those years ago.

As the young man left, he felt sorry for the sitting man being alone all the time, so he promised he would tell others about him someday, and maybe then he wouldn’t be alone anymore.

Ten years later, the young man was now 28 years old, and a successful businessman. In an interview with a top media outlet, he shared his story about the sitting man, and how that experience changed his life. The interview went viral, and soon enough masses of people wanted to know who the sitting man was, and how they could find him.

Soon enough, journalists and other interested people from all over the world began visiting the sitting man, studying him, and some even meditating with him for days on end. Some were even so inspired by him that they created an entire charitable organization in his honor, and others even developed a new religion based on ideas inspired by him.

And yet, even after all this attention, the sitting man did not move.

More years passed, and as the influence of the sitting man’s philosophy grew, wars broke out all over the world, as those who opposed the sitting man wanted him dead, so the sitting man’s followers moved him into a secure temple off the beach.

The sitting man still did not react, and yet the people worshiped him as if he were a god. Hundreds of books inspired by his presence were written, documentaries were filmed, and he even won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Many years later, the young man who approached the sitting man all those years ago was now an old man at 93 years old, and he traveled all the way to the sitting man’s temple to pay him a visit.

Using a walker to make his way up to the sitting man’s throne, the old man slowly walked up the stairs until he finally stood before the sitting man, panting and exhausted. He filled the sitting man in on the rest of his life story since their last meeting, including the finest details of his memory, until he finally reached the present moment, and said:

“You know what, Sitting Man, I think you’ve had it right all along. All those years I spent wondering what to do with my life, and yet now, even at 93 years old, I still don’t have any more of a clue now than I did then. I guess all that’s left to do is sit down and think about it.”

And just as the old man sat down on the floor and closed his eyes, for the first time in thousands of years, the sitting man opened his eyes, smiled, stood up and stretched, and then disappeared in a flash of light. No one ever saw him leave, and no one had any idea where he went, but they all knew that he was gone, and never coming back.

And so the legend of the sitting man was passed on for centuries, from parent to child, teacher to student, and now I have shared it with you. What does it mean, exactly? Well, it’s hard to say, there are plenty of explanations, so why don’t you sit down and think about it?
