Catastrophies Mirror Consciousness

I came across a very interesting quote the other day on one of my favourite alternative news sites, the Signs of the Times. One of the things I like about the Signs is that it is compiled new every day, and it's just like having an electronic newspaper delievered right to your door, with all the top stories of the day. Why bother with CNN or even the New York Times, when often major stories make it on the Signs often before they are printed in the mainstream news.

Another great thing about the Signs is the variety of sources from which they compile the days page. Often times one might see something broadcast on Fox News compared directly to the same story on al-Jazeerah, and by being able to look at the relative "spin" put on the story by both agencies, one is able to come to a more accurate or objective picture or what's really going on. They also reference many of what are considered to be "alternative news sources"; those websites that are not owned by or affiliated with the major media conglomerates, so are able to report independently without coercion or editorial control that is often exerted by shareholders or big advertising contracts.

The best thing about the Signs of the Times, in my opinion, are the comments that often follow or are interspersed between a particular news story that give the page it's most unique and valuable character. Their mission it seems is to report the facts as objectively as possible, and they take great pains to cut through the media spin and various biases that accompany a certain viewpoint. Their comments seem balanced, articulate and well thought out, and often include references to history, mythology, archeology, quantum physics, and other scientific and esoteric disciplines that give their perspective the feel of seeing the big picture.

There is really no other news site quite like it and I think we are fortunate to be able to have such a clear and well written source for news in these seemingly troubled times.

Anyway, getting back to this quote I found that started all these thoughts in my head. It appears on the Hallowe'en edition of Signs of the Times in 2004, and goes like this...

Life is religion. Life experiences reflect how one interacts with God. Those who are asleep are those of little faith in terms of their interaction with the creation. Some people think that the world exists for them to overcome or ignore or shut out. For those individuals, the worlds will cease. They will become exactly what they give to life. They will become merely a dream in the "past." People who pay strict attention to objective reality right and left, become the reality of the "Future."

From what I understand as seemingly inherent in the above quote is the idea of how "consciousness" interacts with "matter" to create "order" out of "chaos". The experience of the perceiver and accuracy of the perceiver's perception in relation to objective reality, or the way things actually are, appears to go a long way in how that "reality" mainfests itself in the future.

In other words, the closer a person aligns their perception to objective reality, the more chance that reality has of becoming attuned to the consciousness of the perceiver. It's almost as if humans beings, as conscious individuals, can indeed create or have an effect on reality, but only if the individual is first able to objectively see what is real.

Laura Knight-Jadczyk, the author of the editorial in question and one of the onwer's of the Cassiopaean website, sums up this phenomenon quite succinctly...

What this means is that order can be brought out of chaos by observing chaos as it IS and not pretending that it is otherwise.

In short, everyone who "believes" in an attempt to "create reality" that is different from what IS, increases the chaos and entropy. If your beliefs are orthogonal to the truth, no matter how strongly you believe them, you are essentially coming into conflict with how the Universe views itself and I can assure you, you ain't gonna win that contest. You are inviting destruction upon yourself and all who engage in this "staring down the universe" exercise with you.

On the other hand, if you are able to view the Universe as it views itself, objectively, without blinking, and with acceptance, you then become more "aligned" with the Creative energy of the universe and your very consciousness becomes a transducer of order. Your energy of observation, given unconditionally, can bring order to chaos, can create out of infinite potential.

Now, being able to see reality objectively is no easy feat by any means. All human beings, from the moment we are born, and by virtue of the place and culture in which we grow up, are conditioned and programmed to accept the values and norms of our parents and the society in which we happen to find ourselves. Seeing that none of us really have any choice as to where we are born, the idea that one nation or religion is better or more true than any other seems wholly dependent on luck, chance, blind fate, or what have you. And if the Buddhist and Hindu ideas of reincarnation are true, as evidence seems to suggest, then it is entirely possible that all human beings on the planet at one time have experienced what it is like to be male, female, of all different races, castes and religions.

Yet to dispassionately observe the power of the belief system of the fundamentalist Christian in comparison to the fundamentalist Muslim, their similarities to rigid dogma, intolerance, and absolute "rightness" of their beliefs are far more striking than any perceived differences. That's why the absurdity of moral crusades voiciferously perpetuated by Reverends, Rabbis, Priests and Mullahs only serve to add to the chaos and strife on a planet already beseiged with enough pain and suffering to last an eternity.

The point here is to consider the quote above in that "Life is Religion", and how we interact with life is how we interact with God. Our ability to see through our conditioned programs, to rid ourselves of the lies of culture, nationality and religion, and fully grasp the humanity of each individual regardless of background or skin colour, is to get closer to objective reality and thus closer to perceiving the true nature of God. That's why religions will always be divisive, and are one of the main causes of war and human conflict throughout recorded history.

To take this idea one step further; is it possible that the three main monotheistic religions were created exactly for this purpose? If it is true that Jehovah/Yahweh/Allah is in fact the same entity, it too much of a stretch of the imagination to consider that He created the three religions in his name in order create and foment as much suffering as possible between his flock of human believers? If so, it does give us an important clue as to the true nature or alignment of this being in regards to idea of a wise, compassionate and loving God, does it not? If we are to take the above quote seriously, than any belief system in the absolute rightness of one God or religion, one that leads us away from objective reality, would indeed add to the chaos and entropy that seems so prevalent in our world today.

Unfortunately, that seems to be precisely the point. The God of the three monotheistic religions is not the compassionate, love-thy-neighbour God of the New Testament that Jesus spoke of, but in fact moreso resembles the angry jealous God of the Old Testament. The God who demands blind obediance and bloody sacrifice from his followers. A God who "feeds" off the negative emotional pain and suffering of his earthly flock, and whose power grows larger the more His true believers continue to blindly accept His lies without question.

So, how does this aspect of consciousness interacting with matter to bring order out of chaos fit in with the idea of earthly catastrophies as the title of this article suggests?

Well, one of the most interesting references in the Hallowe'en edition of the Signs of the Times written by the site's owner, Laura Knight-Jadczyk, mentions the cyclic nature of history and how the policies of Adolf Hitler in World War II are now being mirrored to the actions of war-time President George Bush in what appears to be the creation of the Fourth Reich, the implementation of a fascist police in America, and a continuation and perhaps completion of the 'final solution' in which semitic Arabs (and eventually semitic Jews) are the ones targeted for anhiliation this time around.

In her editorial she also makes mention of the cyclic nature of cometary cycles that is covered in great detail elsewhere on her site in what she calls The Wave Series. According to this series of well-researched articles based on an abundance of archeological and historical evidence, she describes how the planet earth, over it's long history, has repeatedly undergone showers of cometary bombardment, each time resulting in an almost complete devastation of the human population and all the related infrastructure and technology that went with it. The myth of Noah's Ark and the flood, the great battle of Atlantis as described by Plato, and the so-called "dark ages" of medieval Europe all strongly point to the appearance and effects of this periodic cometary and meteorite cycle.

There seems to be an enormous amount of evidence to suggest that there is a strong connection between the conscious experience of human beings as observers of reality and the timing and nature of these cometary showers. It's almost as if the more divorced from reality the perceptions of humans become, the greater and faster will these rocks start appearing in our atmosphere. Seeing how Bush and his Neocon cabal have successfully stolen another election, and millions of his fundamentalist Christian supporters blindly follow him like the pied piper of the apocalypse, does give a certain credence to the prophecies contained in the Book of Revelations, and how this could literally be the end of our world as we know it. Compare this phenomenon to the numerous sightings of meteors and meteorites that are reported with greater and greater frequency around the world, should give the entire human race pause for grave concern.

So, as long as the majority of human beings on this planet continue to passively accept the lies of their leaders, religions and cultures, and as long as these lies stand in direct contrast to the perception of objective reality, the more likely it seems that the continued bombardment of meteorites and space rocks this planet will experience. Until such point as the grand techonological marvels and scientific progress we've made over the past hundreds of years lay in rubble under the glow of a perpetual red sky.

However, the few who have the will and perseverance to deprogram themselves from the lies of official culture, and the courage to face the truth of this reality in all it's horrors and suffering, perhaps the effects of the Human Experiential Cycle for them might be different, just maybe there exists the possibility of creating order out of chaos, to behold an altogether different future.

Food for thought.
