A dream-worshipping Druidic society

continuing with pt 3 (or playlist)

And though we can see in older classic spiritual texts, there is an observance that one should know oneself and that perhaps what is outside emanates only from inside, and if you really want to push that to the extreme you could say: there is no outside, there is only the inside. This gets me misconstrued, this gets me misunderstood over time, and this outer world gets depersonalized – this is the key to a lot of the work I'm doing.
This externilization process depersonalizes what is our responsibility. And we see that the world out there is actually starting to disconnect from us and we don't assume responsibility for it.
So, you know, there are exceptions to this. There are those that do push through. There are spirits who do question authority and who are kind of organically defiant and which will always push through this. And when you find these souls, sometimes they are political radicals, or the revolutionaries, or the philosophers, but when you push it to the fringe, you know, they are terrorists, or they're nutters, or they are excentrics, or the mentally ill.

And the degree and duration of one's investigation into reality can determine what severity of label you get. So when you get someone like David Icke, who comes out with all this fantastic information and then talks about higher dimensional entities and reptilians and so on, that's very easy for the control system to box him off, and put him in a certain place, and categorize him.
So we have to be very careful with the words we use.
I think if you had talked about transdimensional, hyperdimensional things fifteen years ago, it was very very suspect and it was very very esoteric indeed, whereas now, as the informed individual becomes more unacquainted and confident with science and particularly quantum physics and so on, hyperdimensional physics is very mainstream now, is very popular now, and the core concepts – not necessarily the mechanics of the mathematics, which is always best expressed as equations and these kind of really abstruse, you know, mathematical formulas and stuff, but the principles of it – we can all understand, we can all grab and get to.
My feeling is, the sort of no excuse anymore to remain in ignorance and I'm kind of quite interested in studying the Gnostics and the Gnostic system of information. And this is one of my favorites of texts within the Nag Hammadi texts that is called "The Book of Thomas the Contender," and it's just this one line in it that particularly enjoy, which really sums it up for me. And it goes like this:

"Woe to you who dwell in error, heedless that the light of the sun, which judges and looks down upon the all will circle around all things, so as to enslave the enemies. You do not even notice the moon, how by night and day it looks down, looking at the body of your slaughters!"

And to me this is a simple thing. It says, there is no excuse, people, for being ignorant. Do not dwell in error, do not move forward in shows and distraction – it' s not a way forward. And there is another line that says "woe to you who hope in the flesh and in the prison that will perish", which basically says: If you concentrate only on the sensual life – and by that I don't mean the erotic life, I mean of the senses, of the five-sense world – if that is where you are based, you are putting yourself in a perishable world and you're making a deity of a perishable world.
And I think pretty much that's an unacceptable way to behave anymore and why it is not our job to go around and wake people up and all that. And I'm really vehemently attached to the notion that the only thing we can really do if we accept this plenum, this Akashic Field ...
If we enlightened and better ourselves – to use a more mundane word, if we just want to keep it simple – if we concentrate on our own growth, that is the most phenomenal thing we can do to affect everyone else, because every thought you have, every emotion, every feeling, every impulse is automatically kind of holographically shared all the time with the entire field that stretches through the whole multiverse. Nothing is separated. Nothing is decoherent. We live in this hugely interconnected coherent universe. And again, that is a principle that the control system doesn't really want you to go into.
So those nuggest are took away in inaccessible science books or they're took away in () texts that only nuttish read, and that has to stop. And, of course, programs like this start to overturn that nonsense and show that this information is there for all of us and there is a kind of damn good reason for it.

pt 4 All these polarizations are so ridiculous now

I can see how that could be interpreted that way. There is a flipside to that, and it's this: The people who are here, now, are also taking the opportunity of the most extraordinary times of polarization that we have ever seen.
There is no clearer, more distinct demonstration of how reality unfolds from consciousness than living on this planet. And it is so polarized, it is so ridiculous, it is so brilliant, all at the same time, that eventually you either have to acknowledge, and understand, and move forward with that, or it will crush you. And that is what is happening on this planet.
So I would say, to some degree, that the amount of polarization that one sees – and by that I mean how things are collapsed down into opposites so often of peace and violence, and love and hate, and zero and one, and black and white, and whatever – those polarizations are so ridiculous now and, of course, we examine that tonality in programs like this as regards society, and civil liberties, and personal freedoms, and so on and so forth, but those are just human constructs, you know. I would say, no one has any rights, or liberties, or freedoms and yet everybody has rights, and liberties, and freedoms. You know, you're here, you show up on earth – good luck. That's it. There's no rights, there's no freedoms, there's no nothing.
So people get attached to that and social reform and radical political change ... for me that's a dead end. That is playing with the Jazz pieces that someone else has constructed.

That's right, yeah. And I would say: to a very great degree. Everything we do, everything we see, everything we feel, and all this information that we're imbibing, we have to bring it into the personal. We cannot afford to abstract things all the time, into this distant metaphysics, or this distant social common, it has to be brought into the personal, into what you actually do, into what you actually feel, into what you actually are.
So my kind of litmus test, my yardstick for the gnosis, and the wisdom, and the information that I come upon is, how can I integrate it into my own felt experience of life. And if I cannot, I disregard it, I reject it. Because the only thing that we have is our felt experience.
And it's important to understand, yes, I'm talking about, you know, the food you put in your mouth and the toothbrush with which you brush your teeth and all the rest of it, the nuts and bolts of reality. But consider this:

In Druidic times in England, the Druids contemplated the idea that experience on earth was a shadow and light experience, and the light experience was waking life and the shadow experience was what we call going to sleep and dreaming. And they placed equal volume on those two things, equal volume on those two things.
So did the Toltec sorcerers, so did many of the Gnostic seers. ("Jesus was a Toltec Sorcerer.")
We don't do that now in our society. Dreams are a bit of silly fluff that you just forget when you wake up. Dreams are like nonsense. Dreams are dreams – they are just not real. And that represents where we start to see a complete bifurcation of what is real and what is unreal. And it is important to acknowledge, as a very simple example, that obviously half your time you spend asleep and half your time you spend awake – whatever the percentage is of that it doesn't matter, but you get the point. There is a light and a dark. And that doesn't mean "good and evil", it just means light and not light. It means shadow, it means illumination, it means darkness. As anybody who is familiar with torture technics knows, one of the most cruel things you can do to a human being over an extended period of time is not give them darkness. To keep someone in a cell with a bright light in it is a very very subtle, but very very penetrating and horrible way of torturing somebody. We need darkness. We need shadow. It's part of our system. It's part of our ecology. It's part of our consciousness.

And so I think it's important to recognize that experience here begins to become richer and more important and more synchronous when we understand that this concept of light and shadow is central to the human experience. And it can be demonstrated by describing the old Toltec sorcerers, or shamans, or bruchos or whatever you want to call them. And when I say "sorcerer", again, I underline this, I'm not talking about like dark sorcerers or like, you know, you have a good magician and then a sorcerer is someone who is bad. I mean sorcerer just as one who is interested in knowledge, in knowing, in information. (I kind of quit that on a video recently when someone wants to look into that. It's important to get to the root of that word.)
So sorcery is a neutral thing. Sorcery is working with reality of fundamental level – that's all it means.

The old Toltec sorcerers used a limit what they would do in their waking life.
And they would be careful of what food they ate. They would be careful of wearing certain colours. They would be careful of going to certain places, because those energies in those places would reduce the amount of psychic energy they had to practise that sorcery when they were asleep.
And so they viewed life the other way around: that sleep was the real, important, juicy, exciting bit, and the waking life was just a functional bit. And yes, they would go out, and smell the roses, and walk under the trees, and eat fresh juicy peaches, and all the rest of it, and enjoy what is wonderful about life, but they treated that as very much the basic level of manifestation – high density experience of life.
The final life, the freer life was actually what happened when that consciousness, if you like, freed itself from the organism and assimilated it: moved, drifted, glided it – whatever you want to call it – back into the real field of creation where it is free, from where we came and to where we go. And this is an interesting counterbalance just to show how fundamental the constructs, how fundamental that fake browser through which we look is. So even the acceptance of the waking world as the real one and the dream world as unreal is bollox basically.
It's not like that at all.
And the only sort of interface we have between the two is so rare and is so obscure.
Really the only two methods we get to it is through these esoteric systems of meditation or through these questionable substances that in our society we just call "drugs" or "hallucinogens" which probably we could perhaps describe as "sacred plant medicine" or "entheogens" or whatever. In the 60s people call them "psychedelics". And these things pop up time and time again and it's a very decisive issue to talk about that.

And yet those two methods, meditation and entheogens, are perhaps the only clear ones we have as examples of how you can interface directly between a higher densitiy experience, i.e. physical experience, and a lower density experience, a finer, higher resolution experience such as in, what we would call, a "spiritual" experience, where you're dealing with energy of purer level.
Is very important one's intent in this – everything what we do is directed by our inclination, our motivation.
Our intent is the juice for this thing to occur. If you talk to somebody about Salvia Divinorum one person will say, yeah, this is just like teenagers take it and fall over the back of the sofa, and laugh a lot, and freak out, another people will say, well, it's a sacred medicine, not to be used lightly essentially. So again, the construct dictates, and upholds, and stears, and monitors what is the perception of a given thing, and even we ourselves ...
