  1. Do I have the ability to act on the world to add, change, or stop certain phenomena? Or am I completely a victim of circumstances and forces larger than myself?
  2. Those of you who have seen my other posts will know that I am an advocate of free sharing and distribution of all kinds of knowledge. This post is an open area by which those who are willing can share the secrets of their sect, or just any occult/spiritual mysteries they know about. I am interested in all groups/societies (ordo templi orientis, hermetic order of golden dawn, eastern mysticism, theosophy, or any gurus like Sadhguru, Yogananda etc.)
  3. I was writing about dreams and how mine were influenced by the movies and shows I watch. I realize I'm hooked on some pretty dark shows, like HBO's Game of Throwns, HBO's West World. I just started watching Stranger Things on Netflix. These are all very dark paranoid shows. They say there's a part of our consciousness that can't tell fiction from fact. If so, watching some of these ultra violent shows, like West World and Game of Thrones can't be good for my and perhaps societies collective unconscious. These types of shows aren't anything new, but the quality of them, and there graphic, often shocking nature probably is. Take Game of Thrones, good guys bite the dust more often and painfully then the bad. Woman, children even babies aren't safe. For all that, West World might be darker, with its paranoid musing on free will. We see the past(?) good guy rape his first love, and murder woman and children just to explore his bad side. Older shows on regular TV could certainly be violent, but rarely created the deeper attachments that these shows do over there long costly (West World episode 1, $25 million!) runs There is an emotional depth to these shows, especially once your hooked. I don't think such shows are part of a conspiracy, rather they're giving us what we want. Yet they're also costing us our.. well.. innocence. On some level these shows affect our collective subconscious.
  4. it is been a time since i awakened out of conditioned mind and noticed the reality and what the mind making me see and what the reality actually is. but whenever i increase my awareness, focus and mindfulness... a trigger reappears and drag me down to the conditioned mind and the misery airse back but in a deep sad way. recently, i m noticing the moment before falling into the mind and become a follower and loosing my awareness of the now and the present moment and dwell in mind and stories... i feel myself standing on the edge between 2 perspectives... perceptive of everything great and wow vibrant and such and another "social" perspective of sadness of seeing what really is and how the world is in a sad way. lets call one the social perspective and the higher perspective.... the social perspective attract me into it.. by saying lets be real.. society is like that and they see you this way.. and u are this and that ... and what u believe in is bullshit ... etc .etc. This social perspective was raised by society and people, values and such.. and they lead to beliefs in me about myself and about life that serve no purpose and actually hinder and make me struggle in my life. the higher perspective gets me into it ... when i focus and allow the "social" perspective to be.. it is great and vibrant the life become, but it never lasts ... i m always switching in and out of them. There is like an inner conflict between me awakening and trying to manage my life and myself in beliefs that serves my improvement and the other thoughts and beliefs that are conditioned by society and people, culture... the question is how to Merge them ? or how to break free of those social/cultural beliefs implemented in my subconscious ? Thank you!
