Jon Rappoport ~ Spiritual Fascism

Here’s Jon, in a “timely” explanation about how limitless and creative Reality truly is, no matter how much fascist governments, co-opted media or what I call “The New Age Borg” try to convince you otherwise. You are free to create and uncreate at Will and by Will. We are all artists. Some of us just happen to create more traditionally or abstractly or magickally or sur-really than others. And some of us recognize that art encompasses life. Indeed, art is life, and life is art … if we choose to embrace our own Creativity.

As Abraham-Hicks says, “You can’t get it wrong and you never get it done.” “You are a creator; you create with your every thought. You often create by default, for you are getting what you are giving your attention to wanted or unwanted but you know by how it feels if what you are getting (creating) is what you are wanting or if it is not what you are wanting. (Where is your attention focused?)”

Spiritual fascism

Year by year, I continue to make my case for the independent individual—one might even say the lone individual, except that this phrase has been co-opted to mean an assassin, a killer.

Which tells us where society is heading.

On every possible front, the psyop is about discrediting the individual and elevating the group and the collective.

Because I’m 75 years old, I’ve been around long enough to see the tectonic shift, among so-called intellectuals, from admiring and praising the individual to celebrating some sort of spiritual unity that makes us all into One Cosmic Glob.

For example: “There is really no separation between us. That’s an illusion. Finally, we are one consciousness.”

I dispute this. I reject it completely.

This, yes, insanity arises from a basic confusion and blind spot about the creative power (of the individual), which has no boundaries.

It is quite possible to imagine and create and invent a perception that we are all one consciousness and to experience the fullness of the perception. It is not an illusion. It is quite real.

But one can also un-create that perception.

In fact, in the early spiritual exercises of Tibetan tantric students and adepts, this on-off creation was a significant component. It was done, consciously, as a merging and un-merging with Nature. It was PRACTICED on a daily basis.

In early Tibet, a truly unique culture that was soon dismantled and destroyed by theocratic leaders, the individual was recognized as an staggeringly powerful artist.

Rather than assume there was one final highest reality we all share, it was understood that the individual could and did invent realities without limit.

Presuming to understand a final reality for all of us was considered absurd.

It is also a form of fascism. Spiritual fascism.

Once you embark on a road of imagination and creating, all bets are off. All preconceptions about what you must do, make, think, assume, and believe are yesterday’s news.

The individual is no longer “dangerous or deluded or separated from his brothers and sisters by ego” or any of the other debilitating formulations that have been offered to convince we are all One.

Here and now you or I can sit and invent the perception that, yes, we are all one consciousness…and then dispense with that perception. In either case, I’m doing it. You’re doing it. You’re creating a perception.

That’s what artists do, what they’ve always done. Somehow, in this cheesy spiritually fascist web of confusion, the fact has been lost.

People occasionally write to me and say the artist has no function in this society. Well, I’m not talking about function. Function is for machines.

Machines aren’t free.

This society is supposed to exist to allow the individual to flourish, but waiting for that to happen will put you on the track to nowhere.

Society is heading for more and more collectivism. Economically, politically, spiritually.

Here is a bottom line. People in this world believe in what they create, except they’re not aware of what they’re creating.

They think, instead, they’re seeing what’s already there.

This missing link explains a great deal.

People are playing a shell game with themselves. They’re placing the pea inside a particular shell, and then they’re turning over the shell and finding the pea.

Then they exclaim, “Look what I found!”

NO. They didn’t find it. They put it there to begin with.

They created a reality and then denied they created it.

This would be like a painter spending six months making a huge work in his studio and then saying…”It’s a miracle. I walked into the studio today and I found this painting leaning against the wall. Astonishing!”

Yes, you can conceive of (create) all of humanity and stars and galaxies as One Consciousness if you want to. You can do that. You can also do something else. In either case, you did it. And you can undo it.

The clue you should take from that exercise is: you have an extraordinary capacity to create “content.”

Dictators and fascists tell you what content you should create, and on top of that, they say you didn’t create the content at all. It was always there.

I could write a science fiction story that goes this way: One day, the guy next door, who is a painter, lugs one of his large canvases into your house and hangs it on the wall. He has a big grin on his face. He’s positively serene. He’s producing great GENEROSITY out of every pore. He says, “Look at this! This is what reality really is. Do you see? It shows that we’re all one great consciousness. And the funny thing is, I didn’t paint this. It just appeared on a blank canvas. I saw it this morning when I went into my studio! Now, listen. You should believe in this painting, too. You really should. This is the higher reality…”

Yes, I could write this science fiction story. Except it’s already happening, every day.

Last Day for the Medical Intuitive Special

I’ve decided to extend one of the September Specials through October 31, 2013. Given that Samhain/Halloween/All Hallow’s Eve marks the thinnest veils between worlds, the “Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up” Special makes sense to continue as preparation for easier shifts among dimensions and timelines. As usual, this months’ specials arose from some kind of inner nudge of what’s needed by the most people this month. I never know exactly what they are until the moment I post. The Medical Intuitive Special is a good offer that has helped many, but it’s not specifically linked to October’s energies. As a result, you’ll have more time to sign up for the Timeline Special, but today is the last day to sign up for the Medical Intuitive three-pack.

Timeline Tune-In and Tune-Up

This hour session helps you to recognize your likely trajectory based on current energy patterns, intentions, and habits … and then, I search for the closest parallel reality versions of “you” with very slight differences that lead to more preferred (and more varied/greater opportunities for) positive outcomes. The scan and download are actually easier for me to do than to explain here, but if you’ve ever seen the movie “Sliding Doors” with its alternate reality story lines that intersect at certain points throughout the film, I’ll be scanning you for the stickiest intersection points.

I have found that these crossover points — i.e., parallel Universe bleed-throughs — can act like portals into alternate realities, preferred or not. That’s why you want to approach them consciously and respectfully, so that you recognize the power of the moment and choose wisely. The initial shift looks subtle, because if there weren’t enough similarities between the timelines/alternate realities, then the bleed-through moments wouldn’t happen so easily; however, in retrospect, such moments or decisions often seem “Fated.”

This reading gives you a heads up regarding the types of feelings, thoughts and experiences to watch for if you’re looking to sidestep onto a more positive timeline without needing to slog through linear time to get your desired life. In some cases, the preferred outcome even requires a sidestep, because the laws of cause and effect already set in motion on the current timeline are barreling you toward their “inevitable” end result. Fortunately, linear time’s not all it’s cracked up to be! These “timeline hops,” “portal points,” “reality jumps” — whatever you want to call them — are not only possible but powerful, and with awareness and practice, you can learn to surf such opportunities, charting your own course from current to next closest to preferred realities.

$144/hour if prepaid on or before 9/30/13 10/31/13.

(Offer can be multiplied if you would like one or more follow-up tune-ins, since, depending on what I discover, your most accessible hop might be to a stepping stone reality from which to make your next boldly conscious, chosen hop. Such follow-up sessions can provide continuity and a clear reflection as you Fun House Mirror your way through wrinkles in time.)

Please contact me if you’d like to sign up.

Three for $222 Medical Intuitive Package

A set of three (half-hour) Medical Intuitive Sessions to offer support for ongoing progress towards wellness and empowerment. I find that some people really appreciate having occasional follow-up as their health needs and energy blockages shift in the process of healing. This mini package saves $48 off the usual rate.

Offer valid if prepaid on or before 9/30/13. Please contact me if you’d like to sign up.

Finding Beauty

Despite having a busy session load this week, I’ve spent an enormous amount of time overhauling our front yard into a lasagna garden with layers and layers of organic material, eventually to be topped with wood mulch. I’ve planted mums, transplanted marigolds from the backyard beds to more of a front display, uprooted tomato plants, and added compost galore. Today is garlic planting day, as well as another canned salsa adventure to use some of the tomatoes and massive haul of jalepeno’s. It’s a lot of work, but I enjoy the time, the creativity and the physical vigor.

In addition to “painting” our yard with color and prepping the Fall/Winter garden beds, I’ve taken to flower arranging. These bouquets turned out so pretty that I felt called to share them here. Gardens can be productive and beautiful!

Bouquet I made for David and me when I accidentally snapped off two zinnias gone wild. "Fixing" the problem became a delight.

Before I made the bouquet for his mom, David sent me the following picture with this quote: “Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”

I had to smile, because, yeah … as much work and love as I put into it, my garden does. 😉 And I’m ever so grateful!

Beware the King Amendment

As consumers continue to demand Mandatory GMO Labeling laws at the state level, Monsatan and other biotech giants are trying to sneak in something called “The King Amendment,” which would eliminate states’ rights to mandate GMO labeling, thereby nullifying any anti-GMO laws passed at the state level. Not only does this outrageous (yet somehow not surprising) amendment violate the will and rights of consumers across the U.S., but it would violate state sovereignty as well. As usual, the Farm Bill attempts to derail and defund natural, organic farmers as well as defraud health and freedom oriented consumers in favor of biotech giants that few people really want around anymore. I guess you don’t get voted the world’s most evil corporation without trying to earn that badge of corruption and abomination.

Here’s the text of a MoveOn Petition:

“I want you, as my elected official in Congress, to know that you will lose my vote, regardless of your party affiliation, if you support the King Amendment, or any other amendment in the 2013 Farm Bill that would nullify states’ rights to label genetically modified organisms (GMOs). I belong to the more than 90% of Americans who want what consumers in more than 60 other countries already have: mandatory GMO-labeling laws. Even more important, I expect you to represent me, not a corporation, and to protect the more than 225-year-old right of states, counties, and cities to enact laws that protect the health and environment of local citizens. This isn’t just about GMO labeling. It’s about states’ rights.”

Click here to email your Congressperson.

Petition Background

“Monsanto has been poisoning our food and environment for nearly 20 years. Consumers are finally fighting back, by demanding labels on GMO foods. Will Monsanto try to take away our right to pass state GMO labeling laws? Monsanto already slipped a rider into the emergency Continuing Resolution, giving the biotech giant immunity from federal law. Now, there is talk of an amendment or rider to the 2013 Farm Bill that could take away states’ rights to pass GMO labeling laws.”

Again, if you care about this issue or your right to know — at all — then please click here to email your “Representative.” Make ’em earn their keep! Let ’em know that we are keeping an eye on them. If you’re involved in any kind of GMO labeling project at the local or state level, please make sure to follow through about the King Amendment and spread the word to the right people. Otherwise, all your hard work could be undone with the stroke of a sneaky, corrupt vote.

Reaching the Magickal Turning Point May Not Feel So Magickal

Wise words from my sweet soul sister, Tania Marie, playing reading Roulette with Penney Pierce’s “Frequency — The Power of Personal Vibration.” (You can also find my dear friend Gillian Grannum’s review of Penney’s book by clicking this link: https://laurabruno.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/penney-peirce-frequency-the-power-of-personal-vibration/ Like Tania, I’ve been hearing from some people who’ve dismantled the old but haven’t quite experienced the new yet. I trust this post will soothe, heal and encourage …

Tania Marie's Blog

Today, after reflecting on the energy and themes of experiences circulating with people I know directly or indirectly, I had the inspiration to want to share some supportive words for anyone going through that turning point – the pivotal and transitional period in their life where things may not feel so good in the moment while the beautiful and perfect process unfolds.

Like anything, the words shared can trigger a shift, sometimes fully promote change if we are at that ready-stage, or are a stepping stone to further integrative healing to process, as we DO want to hit all the levels to the core of things, right? Not just understand mentally and regurgitate it verbally.  😉

I had the intent of what I wanted to say and yet was guided, instead, to go to my home library of books to see if anything wanted to channel through as a message…

Gleaning

A group of us in Goshen got together last night for an evening of gleaning, and ohhhh, what a lovely, lovely time! Transition Goshen has a project called, “The Low Hanging Fruit Press,” which many of us crowd funded so that we could purchase a community cider press. As a side part of this project, we also began to map fruit trees in town — on private or public property — in need of harvesting.

Many people buy homes that already have fruit trees planted, and they find these trees a nuisance rather than a boon. With permission, those people who do appreciate the abundance of free fruit can save the homeowners a lot of work. In some cases, a timely harvest will even save tree limbs from breaking with the weight of unpicked fruit. A number of websites help to match up gleaners and fruit trees, and David and I found something similar when we lived in Madison. I believe Transition Goshen has decided to use http://fallingfruit.org, which can be used for wherever you live around the world.

I have eaten a lot of apples in my life, but I’ve never actually harvested one from a tree. (Just crabapples.) Most apples in the grocery store are four months to a year old and waxed. Even “organic” apples may be sprayed with antibiotics. The apples we gleaned last night had not been sprayed at all, and you could tell. Many did not look “shelf quality,” because they had little marks on them or odd shapes. Our group harvested these for cider pressing and to donate to a local soup kitchen that will turn them into applesauce. I arrived after a foraging walk with and going away gathering for my friend, Kimber, so I had forgotten to bring any kind of bucket or barrel. That turned out well, though, since my backback swung around front to become a highly efficient harvesting set-up.

Something magical happened to me as I approached the trees at sunset. Long time readers know I feel a strong connection to Avalon, also known as “The Isle of Apples.”

apple tree

This particular property sits on an old orchard, with rolling hills and twisting trees. I said a little prayer to the faeries and trees to help me find the nicest “low hanging fruit” so that I didn’t need to climb a ladder. I felt an immediate response. Amazingly, even when I’d approach a tree after someone else had already gleaned the lower branches, I kept finding flawless or nearly flawless apples — enough to fill my backpack within the first half hour. I then helped others collect for their own harvests or the donation. While picking, as twilight settled in, I could feel the mystical energy of Avalon. A huge well of joy bubbled from my heart up through the crown of my head as I walked under the trees.

We took a cider break to enjoy pressed cider from last week’s similar outing, which I missed due to a friend visiting from out of town. I had donated to the crowd funded community cider press just to support the project, not because I usually like apple cider, but this was the sweetest, richest tasting cider I’ve ever had! Something about drinking a fresh community harvest that would otherwise have gone to waste or broken tree limbs just felt right. This project also dovetails with the Youth Engagement Grant I’m working towards with some neighborhood teenagers to plant fruit trees in a nearby park. I had sensed the community potential of planting the trees and beautifying the park, and I love the idea of providing free, local food to neighbors. But last night, I also realized how healing and empowering the community harvest is. Again, bubbles of joy from a deep well of gratitude.

It’s not just about the apples … although I must admit, the one I ate last night upon returning home has forever changed my attitude about Red Delicious apples. Normally, I find that a completely ironic name! Not this time. Sweet, crisp, fresh, no wax, no spray … and with that extra magical something I sensed while picking:

We can heal our planet and our communities. Indeed, we already are. I encourage people to check out the http://fallingfruit.org website and see what gleaning opportunities exist in your area. What a treat! Free food. An evening in Nature. A gathering of friends.

Blessings abound!

Your Voice Matters

I see no positive purpose in signing “White House” petitions, but I want to take a moment here to say that Congressional petitions, phone calls and letters do sometimes work. Case in point: after overwhelming public outcry, the Senate has rejected continuation of the Monsanto Protection Act! The House of “Representatives” is another story, but this now marks two victories in a not very long span of time. No Congress approval for war on Syria (yet), and now no free pass for biotech companies to continue planting GMO crops after a court has found them harmful.

How did this happen? IMHO, it happened through the relentless hounding of Congress to represent the people they claim to represent. Ya snooze, ya lose, so we need to keep on top of these folks. Whether you’re chanting for peace, planting for peace, spell weaving for peace and natural foods, or sending multiple petitions and phone calls per week, it is possible to make your voice heard. We vote in many ways besides the ballot box (or Diebold machine).

The cynicism of our times says no votes matter. At the presidential level, I agree. Presidents are selected way ahead of time, with support of corrupt vote counting machines and centers, media filtering and Citizens United contributions. At this point, selected presidents are so groomed and brainwashed to push a common agenda that it matters not which party they “represent.” To some extent, we find the same entrenched corruption and arrogance in Congress. A key difference, though? These people do need to spend some time in their own state.

At a recent Town Hall meeting, a citizen publicly and repeatedly accused Senator John McCain of treason. This citizen included many supportive and publicly verifiable facts in his accusation. Although McCain tried to laugh it off, applause showed that some listeners publicly agreed with this citizens’ assessment. Another woman — a former McCain supporter and native of Syria — publicly took McCain to task for his war mongering and lies. Her personal story touched the hearts of listeners, and she did not back down. McCain looked like a speechless turtle who couldn’t find his shell. No offense to turtles intended.

These cushy jobs with their free hair care, copious bribes, extravagant pensions and free Cadillac health insurance ultimately do derive from “We The People.” Increasingly, “We The People” have begun to remind Members of Congress of their rather precarious position. Treason holds a very harsh, humiliating and corporal public punishment in this country. At the very least, “We The People” have reminded some Members that they don’t get a permanent free pass to abuse us. Reelections may very well mean “Buh-bye, parasite,” even if no one decides to pursue formal charges of treason.

So keep it up! Whatever your method or mode of action, when you combine powerful intentions, Imagination and Creativity with tangible actions in “real time,” then you will see manifestations. We live in a participatory Universe. When you learn to vote with your intention and your actions … when you learn to make your voice heard in whatever pure and passionate expression that entails, you continue to amplify the creation process. “In the beginning was the Word …” . Voice that preferred world into being!

Woohoo and Blessed Be!
