Success or Failure: a Matter of Degree

20130409-114348

Winners and Losers

It was a strange dream, last night, even by my own standards: I kept seeing two outcomes for a potential ‘success’ story. In the first instance, it was obvious that what was supposed to happen, didn’t. In the second, the odds seemed against success, but it happened anyway. In other words, nothing is a dead cert…

Sometimes, winning is an accident:

In this case, the winner tripped at end of the race and fell across the finish line first.

Sometimes, the declared loser is actually the winner when the photo finish is reviewed:

Sports makes the struggle more visible, and we ‘ordinary’ folk only witness the events. But everyone goes through stuff, all the time. And in our own estimation, we think we are the best in the world, or, at least, second-best. We don’t like to think we’re losers.

It’s only a matter of degree.

Conclusion

If you meet with failure along the way, see it as a step on your road to success.

Is It Just a Handshake?

tumblr_n0lta3S89I1shojmzo1_500

Or an Exchange of Energy?

We know the drill: upon meeting another person, we’ve been instructed to extend our right hand and offer to shake the other person’s right hand, firmly but kindly.

Have you ever wondered why?

It took me years to understand the ‘natural’ energy quadrants of the human body, but I think they’re connected somehow.

We understand negative and positive in almost everything we speak about: up vs. down; in vs. out; right vs. left. But again, why?

Notice how both positive and negative energies initiate on one side and terminate on the other. If you place a human body facing you and superimpose the graph, the energies end up on the right side.

In my own experience of energy work, I have noted that, when sitting in a circle holding hands, energy moves from the right hand of one person to the left hand of the person sitting on their right. When the circuit is complete, the energy comes back around to the first person through their left hand, and the movement of energy starts again. (A bit of “what goes around, comes around again.”)

Conclusion

The handshake is an instant recognition of the energy another person holds in comparison to your own. Sometimes, sparks fly, but mostly just an easy rapport.

I’ve got to hand it to the person who devised this social convention: they must have known what they were doing. I’d like to shake their hand…

Mork Calling Orson…

f9a86f3c-500b-44c7-9e0b-a41055c98be5_screenshot

Come In Orson

Yes, I know it’s old and trite now, but a television station in Hamilton, Ontario (CHCH) still runs episodes of Mork and Mindy on a daily basis.

And at the end of each program, Mork reports what he’s learned that day with Orson, his superior being. Because Mork is an alien from Ork, his perspective of life on Earth can be quite eye-opening.

Even then, I saw that Mork was going into a form of meditation in order to communicate clearly with Orson inside his consciousness. (And, for the record, I have always heard Mork call the being “Awesome”.)

We each do the same at the end of the day: nightly prayers; mini-review of the day; and/or dream work. It is how we put the day to bed, as it were.

This is Mork signing off

So now I have a couple of points about the end of every show (and Orson meeting): Mork grabs both his ears (like Carol Burnett, only doubled) and he says, “Nanu, nanu.”

It seems to me that his greeting/farewell gesture is a visual sign-off with more significance than first appears. It’s a stretch but I suspect he has taken “amen” and twisted it into this foreign sounding word. In fact he has turned it upside down and backwards.

Na-new, Na-new.

Pure genius.

The Peasants are Revolting!

You can say that again

Louis the XVI was the King of France in 1789… (as we were taught about the French Revolution). The people were starving because they couldn’t afford bread, so they started to riot. Marie Antoinette was quoted as saying, “Let them eat cake.” Such was their understanding of the life of the common man.

Well, we could say it again, because France is back where the Republic started and they still have this disconnect between Government and the People.

The Demiurge in the Digital Age

the_all_is_one

A Flow Chart?

We don’t usually equate the Creator God with a computer programmer, but are they not One and the same?

Everything in the known Universe can be broken down into binary code, the ‘on/off’ switch. And everything evolves in a programmed step system of connections made and broken. The only paths that are undetermined are the ‘if’ switches where ‘yes/no’ questions are answered.

But, like the Replicants in the movie Blade Runner, do we even know that we’re robots?

Gnostic Equals “Knower”

The-Demiurge

I’ve talked about this before, mainly in my serialization of The Star of Bethlehem here on WordPress: the God of the Old Testament is not a benign being, sitting on a lofty cloud in the sky, watching out for the well-being of humans. That’s our Sunday School version.

The Demiurge is actually the ‘ruler’ of this world, whose job it is to see if we ‘measure’ up to a higher standard. He is the Judge, the Jury, and the Firing Squad all rolled into one.

But, this being can fool us into thinking that ‘he’ is the one and only boss (a bit like Trump, these days). Beyond ‘him’ is another reality, and that may actually be a “Mother/Father” energy called ‘Love’. The test is whether we can see behind the curtain or not. These days, mostly not, I fear.

Even Jesus is Suspect

Okay, I know this is a stretch, but what if the above statement is true? Well, don’t believe everything you read: language, being our only verbal means to communicate, can echo the same thing in different ways, even though the words seem to come from different origins. Jesus was a person, Christ is his halo.

Take the statement that Jesus is quoted as saying: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6) On the surface this appears to be a simple statement of fact. But what if it’s a hint of something else?

Qabalistic Tree of Life

Do you see the middle position in this Qabalistic Tree of Life? The one marked as Beauty in the middle of the middle path is numbered 6. As we learned in the decoding of Jesus’ name, the letters add up to 888, which then combine to a single digit: 6.

Those with eyes to see, let him see.

The ancient Hebrews used this Tree of Life as their flow chart. It helped them see that the only way to get a direct link-up from their Kingdom to the Crown was through Foundation and Beauty. And we think we know a better way, eh?

Leonardo da Vinci and the Vitruvian Man

universal-genius

Universal Genius

Following on from yesterday’s article about the Golden Ratio, I wish to focus on Leonardo’s Vitruvian Man, today.

At the bottom of the original drawing on paper, Leonardo wrote some notes (backwards, mirror-style). Here’s a translation as quoted on Wikipedia:

For the human body is so designed by nature that the face, from the chin to the top of the forehead and the lowest roots of the hair, is a tenth part of the whole height; the open hand from the wrist to the tip of the middle finger is just the same; the head from the chin to the crown is an eighth, and with the neck and shoulder from the top of the breast to the lowest roots of the hair is a sixth; from the middle of the breast to the summit of the crown is a fourth. If we take the height of the face itself, the distance from the bottom of the chin to the under side of the nostrils is one third of it; the nose from the under side of the nostrils to a line between the eyebrows is the same; from there to the lowest roots of the hair is also a third, comprising the forehead. The length of the foot is one sixth of the height of the body; of the forearm, one fourth; and the breadth of the breast is also one fourth. The other members, too, have their own symmetrical proportions, and it was by employing them that the famous painters and sculptors of antiquity attained to great and endless renown.

Similarly, in the members of a temple there ought to be the greatest harmony in the symmetrical relations of the different parts to the general magnitude of the whole. Then again, in the human body the central point is naturally the navel. For if a man be placed flat on his back, with his hands and feet extended, and a pair of compasses centred at his navel, the fingers and toes of his two hands and feet will touch the circumference of a circle described therefrom. And just as the human body yields a circular outline, so too a square figure may be found from it. For if we measure the distance from the soles of the feet to the top of the head, and then apply that measure to the outstretched arms, the breadth will be found to be the same as the height, as in the case of plane surfaces which are perfectly square.

Doesn’t this sound like don Juan Matus’ description of a human as a ‘luminous egg‘? Different source, different time, same effect.

Conclusion

The aura of a ‘normal’ individual encircles the body. When the individual becomes enlightened, the circle of light grows larger to encompass more and more of the world surrounding the person. That is why a saint is depicted with a halo. That’s why the sun has one, too. It’s all connected to the Creator Architect… the Demiurge.

Fibonacci and the Golden Ratio

fibonacci-tree

Pyramid Sales?

This is weird. Researching the Fibonacci sequence, I came across this Fibonacci tree image and immediately thought of pyramid selling or Ponzi schemes. The difference, as my wife pointed out, is that the image would ordinarily be inverted.

But it did get me to thinking that human behaviour is absolutely predictable, and the Golden Ratio (φ) is at the root of it. Phi = 1.61803399. Watch this video for more insight:

 

The Fibonacci Sequence

So how does the sequence work?

1 DCmmr2gq_XUlV-e_elgMYA

Simply stated, the next number is always the sum of the two proceeding numbers. But their significance doesn’t show up until you plot the information in a graph:

 

dd7620fc0fceffcce27b5d11c5c01a96

Is it relevant to humans, or only just plant life?

onceyouawake-natures-sacred-geometry-the-fibonacci-sequence-11721643

As was noted in the video, weather patterns also follow the sequence.

Weather-The-Golden-Ratio-And-Fibonacci-Sequence

So what are we to make of this?

Conclusion

We think we stand above nature, and yet, time and again, we see that we really are just one part of the puzzle. Physically, we are of the Universe, so whatever ratios are at work in nature are also at work in us.

This whole pattern was highlighted in last night’s episode of God Friended Me and I’ve been pondering it ever since. Maybe God is at the centre of the sequence… who knows?
