TEOMCROTE = TEOTWAWKI on steroids! The End Of Mankind's Current Reign Over The Earth takes into account that our ancestors were neither suicidal, stupid, nor our genetic inferiors but still wound up getting wiped off the Earth. Whereas CSER [cser.org: Centre for Study of Existential Risk] tries to PREVENT this dispensation from coming to an end, TEOMCROTE works from the eventuality/possibility/probability that the end our age takes place and what to do then

my take on 'spirituality'


My first instinct about expressing any idea of mine about spirituality is "Who cares?"
Opinions are like assholes, everyone's got one, and the topic of spirituality really draws out the most insipid and egocentered ones ever heard...

Since i'd just send anyone interested in growing in understanding to any book by Adi Da Samraj, i really don't have that much to add. Some people feel that there aren't enough books on the subject or something and write yet another one, as if thousands of years of publishing on the matter didn't cover all of the angles yet.

My main point when it comes to people who talk about spirituality [and usually, the more serious people are about it, the LESS they talk about it...] is that they obviously HAVEN'T read any of Adi Da's works, or they would stop. Of course, there's always reading and ignoring or choosing not to understand, so when i say "haven't read" i mean "haven't taken to heart".

Anyway, the main thing i'd have to say on spirituality is that i started reading up on the matter as a teenager, some 30 years ago, and mainly because of Adi Da's writings i feel i pretty much get what it's about. And the more i get, the more i get the impression that other people like the drama of grasping as straws when it comes to spirituality more than anything else.

Adi Da lived and spoke of the Tantric life, i.e. (even though there's no point or meaning to being incarnated in itself) the entirely of existence, including the incarnated state, is part of the divine experience and should be considered in that light. He mentions in His books often that certain actions are "appropriate", when it comes to dietary habits, attitudes, whatever.
Respective to the whole 2012 issue, i feel surviving it and not giving in to the drama of playing victim and committing suicide is appropriate; in general, personally, and for mankind. For this reason i have no respect for the copouts that lead people to (however elaborate forms of) suicide.

I have a number of books by Adi Da, including His Dawn Horse Testament, on the island already.

DA!

reaching others (or not)


the below i replied to a suggestion that we might reach others through positive attitude and such:

i've been trying to reach people my entire life, not just since i found out about 2012 and impending disaster. Actually, the disaster has been apparent on many levels to me almost all of my adult life and therefore i've been trying to find out how to reach others for about 25 adult years.
 
Like i found out about the dairy insanity in the Diamond's book Fit For Life II, so i was talking to people, seeing how to share the truth about how bad pasteurized cow milk is for one's health, even especially for their calcium levels; hell, i had a mother who was forcing down a glass of milk a day for her bones, whereas i'd learned that she was probably CAUSING the osteoporosis she was fearing by doing this... (In 2012 i learned she's in a wheelchair now, crippled by osteoporosis...)
That's what i've been dealing with.
 
I've found out that people don't stay ignorant for decades for no good reason. And then the age of internet arrived...
Now it has become utterly clear to me that there's far far more at work here than lack of knowledge. But of course you speak of family, love, sharing,, all normal human things that society is so lacking in.
My further research and considerations have led me to the things i've been writing about these past 3 to 4 years on anno70 (unfortunately largely no longer online). What i've found out is that, first of all, only about 30% of the population of the planet is human to begin with. The 'inhuman' ones, i think, are souls who are part of mankind, yes, but definitely not of human origin. Of course to get that, one would need to understand that genetically speaking we are part [and not even totally] human, reptilian, earth-originated simian, and hollow earth species... Of course i've spent the past 4 years and about 300 articles explaining what the hell that's about. The point here being that the 'reptilian souls' in our midst aren't behaving in an inhuman(e) fashion because of conditioning or trauma but rather because that's all they are capable of. Perhaps in a billion years, or maybe even much sooner like in a million years, those souls will also be able to handle a 'human' incarnation. Looking back on it all i now find it amusing that i ever believed in people all being more or less of the same soul age and developmental stage. Souls come to Earth from all over the universe, at all kinds of stages of development. There are reptilians and humans mainly in this part of the galaxy, which is why about 1/3 is human and 1/3 reptilian, but the other 1/3 comes from any of dozens of other species. It's hard to speak about that many variables so i just talk about 'human', 'reptilian', and the non-humans; those last ones can be fine or (at least) as bad as the reptilians.
 
To be clear: i'm only really interested in the humans and don't mind friendly non-humans (i.e. non-reptilian). Am i 'rascist'? LOL I'm a realist. A puppy makes a good pet for your child, a crocodile does not. People who are used to working from their reptilian brain [which we all have, but we can choose which we use at any certain time] are dangerous. They are the last people one would wish to have to deal with in already dangerous times and situations. There's a whole syndrom of characteristics that apply to them that are negative; they're authoritarian, opportunistic, self-destructive, and worse. They'll bring you down and not only at their own cost but they'll actually destroy themselves more than they destroy you, just to be able to destroy. I mean that quite seriously. They are the ones who have given everyone the idea that the world's insane and mankind evil. Mankind isn't evil, stupid, or insane,, it's the inhuman people in our midst. The problem lies in not recognizing that some people 'just never learn', so to speak, whereas other people are basically no problem at all to deal with.
Maybe then you understand what i mean, since we all experience this. Our problem lies in making excuses for the people who are hopeless, assuming we're all human and capable of humanity. The truth is we're not and the troublemakers are always the same people.
 
Okay, so if we're talking 30% of the planet's population, that's still 2 billion, right? Those 2 billion, however, will fight to honor their reptilian politicians, family members, and general authorities because they not only live in a world in which reptilian people and values are the rule, they're actually ruled over by a tiny reptilian elite that discourage humanity [humanness] and encourage insanity, i.e. you're fighting the entire system. So that tells you who you can reach: the ones who are already fighting the system or at least feel comfortable without (the idea of) it.
 
People need to get at least some of this but because it's so all-encompassing and apparently complicated, they give up and in the end they even fight truth (that undermines their paradigm). That's not about being enlightened, it's about trauma, conditioning, and soul maturity. I'm not enlightened, i'm just comprehensive of what's going on. I actually have an explanation why i was able to figure this stuff out that DOESN'T involve being inspired, superior, or smart,, but that's a long story.
Maybe it's as simple as that i'm lucky, and so are you, and we should be out looking for other people who were lucky enough to survive untraumatized enough to make it to survival. Healing from the common traumas and conditioning that suck the will to live out of people is a big deal. I'm hoping to get tens of thousands of folders out in the city i'm living [about 2 to 300,000 people] and reach maybe 20 who will have the will to join us. I'm not kidding myself that there will be many more than that. God willing i'm wrong...
 
The person you mentioned talked like he was insane. The typical shite, ignoring what HE did that was stupid or wrong and making a lot out of whatever he could home in on to point out that everything that went wrong was my fault. Then he goes off to La Gomera and reminds me of the gf i was with, wasting money on cabs, taking the wrong boat, all kinds of waste of money though he was complaining 2 weeks earlier that he didn't have enough money to pay the fare to get there. The GOOD thing is that these self-destructive ones naturally 'vibrate away' from me (at least) and now he's suggested himself that he wishes to have nothing to do with us and we're not welcome. He said he'd paid for the house and is now using it for himself and that it's not available to anyone else, i.e. no survivalists/preppers are welcome at his place.
My things that were in storage and which i asked him to take care of, he never mentioned and when i asked him about what's basically all i own [sic], he said it's not his problem. You still wish that i'd talk to him? We need to be happy that these people themselves aren't interested in dealing with us.
 
Jesus, as far as i reckon, was a guru, dealing with others in the typical form of the guru-devotee relationship; i've been a fan of his teachings my whole life and have tried to stick to things like the golden rule; when i was older, i made more out of "do not resist evil"; unfortunately, i was not yet "wise unto a serpent" and allowed people into my inner circle who were very dangerous. Would more love have solved the problems? I gave my ex-wife everything, she didn't have to work, i worked 2 jobs for 2 years, talked to her for hours a day,, but after 2 years she stabbed me in the back and has been hounding me relentlessly since our divorce and now my daughter and i don't see each other anymore.
I've come to accept the inhumanity of others. There's no amount of love or good vibrations that will change someone who finds comfort in selfpity. They're just wired in a completely different fashion. The point is that we don't have the aeons it would take to bring them around, even if it were at all possible that way. Maybe billions incarnated for the hard knock of dying through their complacency, for even though they kid themselves today that they'd rather die than survive TEOTWAWKI, at the grand finale of life, at their last breaths, they will feel the same fear, despair, and regret that everyone does who knows deep down that they were cowards and could have done much better. Then maybe, as souls, they'll take that with them to a next life and not be so complacent; for now, however, it's really self-destructive to wish to deal with them. They'll just take you down with them.
 
Enlightenment takes ages. We can't enlighten anyone. We all have at least hundreds of incarnations as people and will go through this destruction as maturely or immaturely as previous lifetimes have prepared us, or as we've prepared ourselves.
Having said that, we are entering a region of the galaxy where consciousness changes for us. I like to add: just as any drug might; the difference being that the 'high' might now last ages. I say that to underline that, again, the raising of consciousness doesn't come from others. It either comes from one's self or it comes from some outside source that is chemical or cosmic in nature. We certainly cannot reprogramme others; they aren't some blank slate, some empty canvass to be painted.
I say therefore, let us be clear about what we're about, let it be known as far and wide as possible, and then let anyone who would come to us, not the other way around. That suggests a certain kind of presentation, one that has little to do with 'teaching' but everything to do with informing, if you gather the difference i'm talking about.

my 2012 vision


I've had a vision which i first thought was of Nibiru. With what i've learned of Paul LaViolette's research [Earth Under Fire] i now believe that it could be the vision of the fall of the solar system's heliophere which results in our Sun turning into a T-Tauri star (temporarily) while our planet stops spinning (for 3 days).
Image
It was very intense and the feelings of the person experiencing its passing were very interesting. A frantic appeal to Jahovah, thinking the sun died and then started falling from the sky, and then it felt as if the Earth was being suck in by this falling sun's gravity.
I [the person experiencing what was taking place] saw the Sun turn black, then grey, then red and start growing. It was frightening and thoughts about the end of the world went through 'my' mind. Hence the praying. The growing red sphere seemed to be heading towards the Earth but then it felt like we were actually falling into it, being sucked up into it, falling into its gravity well. Though it had appeared to be racing towards the Earth, it then seemed to pass by it. The feeling of us being sucked up into it, however, also stemmed from the winds that suddenly came and blew everything and everyone off of their feet.
Image
I ran into a building and it was some warehouse and forklifts were moving stores/food, the place frantic and full of people. It was difficult to get through there. When i came back outside it was like a terrible earthquake was destroying the old European-style buildings. Great chunks of rock were falling from the buildings and rolling through the street as if rolling down a hill. Car-sized boulders were rolling throught the streets and i jumped left and right, trying to avoid them until one of them caught me. At that point the dream ended instantly.
I also had a vision around 2000 dealing with devastation. It also happened to be my astral meeting with the avatar Adi Da.
In this vision i was on a ferry with all of my supplies but it ran aground and i was left with nothing. This vision taught me not to rely on that kind of preparation too much. Supplies can be lost or stolen and you can't carry them with you if it turns out you have to be mobile. Better to rely on other kinds of preparation (and maybe spread your supplies).

the basic 3 spiritual schools of thought


There are 3 main ways that people approach spirituality, spiritual growth, and transcendence. These are:
1: a 'bridge' needs to be built to transcendence
2: a wall needs to be broken down that's in the way to transcendence
3: there are doors on the way that we ourselves keep locked and closed and which would automatically open if we stop doing that

The 3rd option is (obviously) the correct one. There are, however,, entire cultures, teachings, and religions built on the idea that we must somehow grow towards 'God' or spiritual maturity. One of these ideas has to do with the elaborate idea of raising or developing Kundalini. This is one example of how there are 2 opposing principles: there are those who teach that one must master the chakras from the bottom to the top and when one reaches the top, one has reached the Divine; then there are those who teach that the top chakra must be opened in order to let the Divine come down to the others.
Of the two kundalini paradigms, one is based on the concept of either the 2nd or 3rd spiritual school of thought, the other is based on the idea of building a 'bridge', in this case building up mastery of the chakras. In the case of opening up the top chakra to let in the Divine, one school of thought would believe that this is accomplished through one's personal accomplishments, i.e. breaking down some imagined wall; the other is about STOPPING to do what gets in the way of the Divine from coming down.

As Adi Da Samraj teaches, ego is not entity but activity, the activity of pulling away from the Divine. When the activity ceases, the Divine simply floods the person in question. He often used to compare it with clenching one's fist to the point that one's hand starts to hurt and then gets numb; when one simply STOPS clenching one's hand, the numbness recedes, there is temporary pain as blood returns to the hand, and then the hand is simply at rest. The hand at rest is the natural human state of allowing the Divine access into one's life.

One example can help illustrate how the Divine is simply accessed by ALLOWING it into one's life;
i once worked with 3 colleagues in one office space, all 3 of which were smokers. One New Year's Day they resolved to quit smoking together. After a few days the office started smelling like the machines we had there: printers, computers, etc.
The point is that the smell of the machines was ALWAYS ALREADY present. We didn't start smelling them because we'd somehow changed our ability to smell. What had changed was obviously that the smell of cigarette smoke had FALLEN AWAY. This made it possible for the smell of machines to assert itself.

Allowing the Divine into one's life is similar to the above. When one STOPS filling one's senses with whatever is keeping other matters out, the other matters are registered. Actually, it's not even a matter of the other matters now finally being able to come in; they were there the entire time, just like the Divine is always already present everywhere. 'God' doesn't need to be allowed or invited in, 'God' is always already present.
As Adi Da repeatedly stated, you are what you meditate on. In the above example, my colleagues were about smoking and all we all could smell was cigarette smoke. As soon as they were no longer about smoking, they became about something else, i.e. their senses registered other things.

In the above example, to stop smoking is hardly about building a bridge or breaking down a wall. It's simply about allowing a door to swing open. As Adi Da stressed by His statement "You are what you meditate on", it's about a change in focus; one cannot successfully stop smoking if one is 'breaking down the wall of smoking'. When a smoker that wishes to stop focuses on stopping, the focus is still on smoking, just in the negative. As soon as the focus changes to matters that take the place of smoking it becomes possible to TRANSCEND it.
Smoking was not defeated. Non-smoking was not achieved. The non-smoker isn't about non-smoking. The non-smoker's life simply has nothing to do with smoking. The non-smoker gives smoking no attention, has no interest in it, one way or another. Because of the focus of the non-smoker it becomes evident that what takes place in the absence of smoking. It's all about focus, not about bridges or walls.

Intelligence, health, and spirituality are all similarly acquired. Health is the natural state when disease is absent, which is clear. Less clear, perhaps, is that the universe and all life are inherently intelligent. This is especially true of people when they start using their brains in a focused manner (which is obviously quite uncommon). A brain full of conflicting notions and self-imposed limitations due to trauma and conditioning exibits but a fraction of it's potential. When a person actually (and finally) utilizes the brain's potential, genius results. The genius was always already there but perfect hardware with flawed software does not result in perfection.
