LIVE VS EVIL
 

This last year, and especially the last months, it seems the gates of hell have been thrown open. And now, as Shakespeare says, “all the devils are here.”

The lying MSM, the Big Tech social media censors, governments, tyrannical health officials, Big Pharma, Big Business, Fascist Billionaires… the list goes on; all weaponizing fear to control the masses. So far, they have been overwhelming successful because we have allowed this. But rather than go on a rant about all that, I’d like to look at the nature of evil in this post.

I feature Aleksander Solzhenitsyn here because he had the courage to stare down evil. By telling the truth, even while imprisoned in the Gulags of Russia, his books and had much to do with bringing the Soviet regime down with his books One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich (1962), Cancer Ward (1968), August 1914 (1971), and The Gulag Archipelago (1973). I consider him one of the world’s greatest warriors against evil.

Solzhenitsyn’s books reveal that even in the darkest reaches of humanity, the indomitable spirit of good remains even in the perverse presence of evil. We can recognize evil for what it is because it always shuns the good of what it means to live. If we look at the English spelling of evil and spell it backwards, we get LIVE.

E V I L - L I V E

L I V E - E V I L

Even if that's just a quirk of the English language, I think that says a lot. What we considered to be evil might be regarded as the inversion of good. That’s because evil has little or no awareness. It is in the dark.

If we take a look at those qualities associated with what it means to LIVE, and then consider what we’re left when it's gone... looks much like evil to me. But its what the world seems to be getting a lot of these days. I won’t go into a rant on the specifics of what events I consider evil in our world since it’s rather obvious.

The following statements illustrate the opposite of what LIFE means. 

What is it to LIVE without freedom: Enslavement, disempowerment.
 
What is it to LIVE without happiness: Depression

What is it to LIVE without contact: Isolation, loneliness.

What is it to LIVE without Love: Fear

What is it to live without Light: Darkness

What is it to live without Creativity: Mediocrity

What is it to LIVE without Laugher: Sadness

 What is it to Live without Affirmation: Cancelation, denial

What is it to Live without Awareness: Ignorance, stupidity

What is it to live without Goodwill: Cruelty, Shaming

What is it to live without Movement: Shackling, Prison

What is it to live without Hope: Despair

What is it to live without Breathing: Suffocation

What is it to live without Generosity: Greed

What is it to live without Openness: Hiddenness

What is it to live without Beauty: Ugliness

What is it to live without Respect: Disregard

What is it to live without Productivity: Barrenness

What is it to live without Abundance: Scarcity, want

What is it to live without Expression: Censorship

What is it to live without Giving: Taking, confiscation

What is it to live without Discipline: Laziness, incompetence

What is it to live without compassion: Indifference, callousness

What is it to live without Reward: Disappointment, disillusionment

What is it to live without Power: Force, imposition

What is it to live without Truth: Lies, Fraud, Deception.

In sum, evil may come to exist in the void of what it means to LIVE: Freedom, Happiness, Social, Abundance, Creativity, etc. Consider how many of these unfortunate qualities have taken over our culture today. Most; all?

As Evil is the opposite of Life, so is Fear the opposite of Love.

LIVE is based on LOVE
EVIL is based on FEAR

It’s no mistake, therefore, why evil people have universally implemented fear to achieve their ends in their pursuit of power and control. Look no further than governments because that's where the power lies. By propaganda, legislation and enforcement, they have the means to exploit the fears of the masses. When combined with the willful ignorance of their subjects, they can get away with murder, even if it doesn’t seem that way, all presumable for the common good.

What’s astonishing is that so few question authority. They want to believe the government has their best interests at heart and so would never deceive them, no matter how obvious it becomes.

Sound familiar? Of course, we see it every time we go out our door.

Some say there is no such thing as good or bad, ‘it just is.’ Well, then I guess this means there is no such thing as a polarity between Love/Light and Fear/Darkness. Obviously, I’m not convinced. When it comes to evil, it sure the hell feels real. Quite literally, the difference between heaven and hell.

And yet, what if it’s just a matter of how things appear to play out in the third-dimensional field of reality? If so, how would things appear from a higher dimension should that be our set-point for consciousness? Would evil still appear as it does to us here, or would we even notice it? I’ll let you know when I get there.

If it helps, let's look at life from another perspective. The Proverb above suggests that evil can’t exist for long, ostensibly because it naturally self destructs since it has no live (LIVE) substance of its own. Even the union of evil people can’t exist for long, no matter how united they seem to be as Solzhenitsyn suggested. And even when they get their way, it’s not long before they implode by destroying each other. History illustrates this over and over.

The philosophical question is whether it is necessary for evil to exist so that good can be known and experienced, just as the darkness allows stars to appear in the dark sky. Perhaps, as some say, we are now going through an ascension process in human consciousness where earth's evil is surfacing that it might be purged by the light of truth. I don't know but would like to think that might be true, and that we are entering into a high consciousness often referred to as the Age of Aquarius or the 'second coming' of Christ Consciousness among the collective of humanity.

But for now, are those who continue to cause so many problems for us nothing but undeveloped, unconscious, ‘young’ souls birthed on the planet to experience the consequences of their errant thoughts and deeds? Furthermore, are they here to provide a crucible for humanity’s evolution and perfection as we learn how to forgive in grace to become the gods we are meant to be or become, instead of the devils we often are?

Perhaps we’re all actors on the stage of human conscious evolution, all playing our parts... and what play doesn’t need villains to keep things interesting?

“All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances.”

As You Like It
William Shakespeare

To further pursue this topic of good and evil in the universe would be a whole new topic of cosmological significance, which I plan to write about at a later date. Meanwhile, I've included below a number of quotes on the topic of evil, each illustrating profound wisdom.
 

The world is a dangerous place. Not because of the people who are evil; but because of the people who don't do anything about it. Albert Einstein

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing. Edmund Burke

For evil to flourish, it only requires good men to do nothing. Simon Wiesenthal

All spirits are enslaved which serve things evil. Percy Bysshe Shelley

A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things: and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things. Matthew 12:34

Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction. Blaise Pascal

I believe the root of all evil is abuse of power. Patricia Cornwell

Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one.
Thomas Paine

The world needs anger. The world often continues to allow evil because it isn't angry enough. Bede Jarrett

False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil. Socrates

Ignorance, the root and stem of all evil. Plato

Good can exist without evil, whereas evil cannot exist without good. Thomas Aquinas

He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it. Martin Luther King, Jr.

REALITY: WHAT A CONCEPT
 

Often materialist and physicalists (not to be confused with 'physicists') hate this kind of talk about spirit. One of my best friends, an engineer, but educated as a physicist, was always taking swipes at Heisenberg and Superstring theorists.

Recently he, or at least his body, died, and so now I'm dying... to find what his perspectives on spirit and matter are these days. Should be an interesting conversation when I do my 'step-up' in about another 50 years or so. (It might take that long for me to finish all the writing I intend to do.)

In any case, I have included some dialogue of this subject from some of my yet 'unpublished' Elysium's Passage book series.

From Chapter 1 Book 2, Elysium’s Passage: The Summit

‘It all started with Descartes,’ Mo said, ‘but as I said before, it was not long after his arrival on our side, he recognized the folly of creating, unwittingly, a dual distinction between matter and spirit.

After that, it was only a matter to time before intellectuals in philosophy and science dropped the spiritual, and embraced the material. As I’m sure you realize, that’s why no one speaks of spirit in your philosophy and science departments anymore.’

‘So, are you telling me matter doesn’t matter?’ I said, wishing to take Mo in a less political direction.

‘Let me jump in to answer that,’ Eli said. ‘Matter does matter, depending on how it's understood. That’s what really matters,’ he grinned.  ‘When we think of it as something inert and separate from spirit, we banish ourselves from Eden’s garden. However, when it’s rightfully understood to be a vibratory manifestation of spirit, then Spirit is rightly understood to be the substrate of what’s material, and that is. Your spirit body appears to have physical existence because it does, albeit in a higher vibratory octave than your earth plane body.’

‘You often say that,’ I said, ‘but isn't that something we might find in the Bhagavad-Gita?’

‘And why should that be a problem,’ Mo said, ‘as if the West has the only valid perspective on reality. But if you prefer the Western bias, let’s use an analogy from empirical science. Think of the iceberg that sank the Titanic. Can you see it? Icebergs are like floating concrete blocks. And yet, in truth, the ice is only an aggregation of crystallized hydrogen and oxygen atoms which at one time were just vapour mists in the air having no material form.

‘But notice what this invisible electromagnetic pattern can do when it becomes dense while colliding with another electromagnetic pattern called the Titanic. When the vapour form is altered to a liquid form and eventually a solid form after freezing, we sudden call this collection of molecules physical. Which, of course, it is. In fact, physical enough to sink ships! And yet, it was just H2O vapour that manifested into a dense electromagnetic pattern of molecules, much like your body in London is a manifested pattern of your soul.’

‘Likewise,’ Mo said, continuing, ‘thought-patterns, when perceived through the filter of our conscious awareness, crystallizes, by analogue, like an electromagnetic pattern of dense ice. It’s what we do, whenever we collapse the wave into what many still believe are particles of material substance.

‘So now, if you will, try to imagine matter as being these patterns of crystallized thought-forms derived from our divine Source through the agency of our minds, which in turn, are of the divine Mind. When you think about this, it’s the only logical explanation that explains empirical reality. Not surprisingly, that’s because only it is true. And so, there’s no need for turtles all the way down.

‘Unfortunately, the world is in the habit of interpreting material manifestations as tangible particles, inherently real, independent and separate. Anything to the contrary seems too ridiculous to consider from the earth plane’s perception of reality. And yet the New Physics, with its tentative understanding of conscious entanglement, is beginning to take the world beyond its fixation with material solidity.’

BREATHE THE SWEET AIR OF FREEDOM

In this post, I’ve lifted a few quotes from A Course of Love, one of my favourite inspirational books (channelled by Mari Perron). After years of meditatively reading short daily portions, I recommend it to every serious student of philosophy and spirituality. 

It’s lundefinedike an onion; each time I read its chapters, I find deeper layers of meaning that continue to become more enriching, both intellectually (mind) and spiritually (heart).

One of the chapters, contained in Book 2, (The New You,) repeatedly uses the analogy of prison to illustrate where we often find ourselves in life. Not necessarily in an institution, but within our inward being. The chapter begins with this challenge:

“I tell you truthfully that until you are living as who you are and are doing what you love, you are in prison.

Ouch!

Further to that, it states:

Just as an actual prisoner, when released from prison, must adjust to freedom… your life has been artificially restricted by the prison you have created of it. The thought of time in prison fills the mind with fear… and yet those who are in prison often become so acclimated to prison life, that life on the outside is no longer seen as a desirable.”

Here, I think, is what Gurdjieff is getting at when he states that man: “begins to become fond of his slavery, proud of it.”

How many people, especially these days, have grown fond and proud of their prisons of fear often lashing out at all who refuse to participate in their smug nightmare. But then, with the ego and fear being close to synonymous, that shouldn't be too surprising.

Unfortunately, it’s easy enough to drift into this prison through various circumstances, such that we don’t even realize where we have locked ourselves. I think many, or perhaps most of us can relate to that at one time or another when we feel constricted by life.

In case you are wondering if you are in a prison of your own making, here are some subtle, or perhaps not so subtle ways we might imprison ourselves:

"Become aware of what imprisons you... what you think imprisons you may not be what imprisons you at all. What you think is what imprisons you."

“You might find it is attitude that imprisons you more than circumstances.

“An internally structured life will quickly replace the life of the inmate if you will but let it do so. Breathe the sweet air of freedom. Be aware of the sky above your head and desire no more ceilings to shield you from it.  

"Even those who actually are incarcerated... are free to follow and internally structured life to a greater extent than many who call themselves free."

And so, just for fun...

 

On the other hand, for those of us who are 'free' but haven't 'breathed the fresh air of freedom:'

“If, by doing work that brings you no joy and allows you not to be who you are, then you are called to walk away.

“If you are tempted by a relationship in which you cannot fully be yourself because of the security it will provide, you are tempted by a false security.

“If you are lured away from who you are by a drive to succeed… if you fear doing what you want to do because you might fail… if you follow another’s path and seek not your own, then you have imprisoned yourself for ‘three meals a day.’

So what is it that can make our life feel like a prison when we are outwardly free? Here are some thoughts on that:

“Your prison was created by your separated thought system. These systems are the results of your attempts to externalize the patterns contained within.

So, these systems of externalized thought patterns, it says, are created by our ego. Then what is the ego?

“The ego is quite rightly seen as a system in and of itself. It is thought externalised and given an identity you but falsely believes to be yourself. From this one externalised thought pattern came most of your false ideas.”

I’m interested in what others think about the subject of the ego, so have posted an article containing several meaningful quotes by writers. I included this above quote in it, which is most insightful.
Go to The Ego Mask https://digitalbloggers.com/relationships/the-ego-mask  

In the quotes below, this is what is suggested we do about our ego-prison problems.

“A life of artificial structure is all any of you have known. Turn your back on the prison of your former existence and do not look at it again. Do not long for its old structure or the false security you seem to feel at times within it.

“Do not look for a new structure with barred windows and windows to keep you safe. Do not seek someone to tell you anew what to do with who you are now that you are no longer a prisoner. Do not give keys to a new jailer and ask to be taken care of in exchange for your new newfound freedom.

“An internally structured life will quickly replace the life of the inmate if you will but let it do so. Breathe the sweet air of freedom. Be aware of the sky above your head and desire no more ceilings to shield you from it.

“Become the author of your own life. Live it as you feel called to live it. We cannot build the new upon prison walls of old. Whatever imprisons you, you must now leave behind. You cannot keep your old prison and have the new life that you long to have.”

In conclusion:

“Its is up to you to accept that your release is possible, to desire it without fear, to call it into being.

‘If you are not willing to claim your freedom, it will not claim you.

“Release from prison through death is not the answer, but rather release through life. Do not wait death’s release but find release while still living in form.”

DIMENSIONS, DENSITY AND SPACE

undefined

  

 

There has been some talk these days about the earth ascending in space to a higher dimension. I explored this topic briefly a few weeks ago just as many astrologers were alleging that the Age of Aquarius was to begin on December 21st, that being the winter solstice. Also, this was the day of the Great Convergence when Jupiter and Saturn aligned for the first time in almost 800 years.

Many say that this means the earth has moved or is moving, into the Fifth Dimensional frequency which might be understood as an energetic step-up into a higher, more refined zone of reality.

Since we remain physically in the third dimension and emotionally in the fourth, this would suggest our earth still has a way to go, especially if there are eleven or twelve dimensions in this universe as some physicists suggest. But maybe that’s about to change to earth’s higher field of energy. I hope so since that would mean peace, love and happiness on earth… with or without a VW bus.

I make some speculations about the Age of Aquarius in a couple of other posts that you may wish to review.

Ascending into 5D  https://digitalbloggers.com/relationships/are-we-moving-to-5d and The Dawning of the Age of Aquarius https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/dawning  

As I understand it, each dimension is an octave on the spectrum of reality that experiences physicality differently since energy crystalizes in its own holon frequency. For more information on the topic of holons, go to the post: What's a Holon? https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/what-is-a-holon 

This brings us to the enduring questions of the relationship between matter and spirit. Some of the most insightful quotes I have come across on this are by Werner Heisenberg (1901-1976), Nobel Prize in Physics (1932). Here are some of my favourites by him.

I assert the nature of all reality is spiritual, not material or a dualism of matter and spirit. The hypothesis that its nature can be, to any degree, material does not enter into my reckoning, because we understand now that matter, the putting together of the adjective material and the noun nature does not make any sense.

Is the nature of reality material or spiritual or a combination of both? I will first ask another question. Is the ocean composed of water or waves, or of both? Interpreting the term material (physical)… corresponds to the waves, not to the water of the ocean of reality.

The solid substance of things is another illusion. It too is a fancy projected by the mind into the eternal world. We have chased the solid substance from the continuous liquid of the atom, from the atom to the electron, and there we have lost it. Actualities have been lost in the exigencies of the chase.

Insofar as supernaturalism is associated with the denial of strict causality, I can only answer that that is what the modern scientific development of the quantum theory brings us to.

In comparing the certainty of things spiritual and things temporal, let us not forget this: mind is the first and most direct thing in our experience, all else is remote inference.

There are several other quantum physicists who had statements similar to this. I have collected a number of these quotes in this blog post.

Physicist's Quotes https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/quotes 

In this post, I have included an excerpt from one of my yet unpublished Elysium’s Passage novel series to illustrate how density is relative to the dimensional field energy exists. As indicated in The Summit below, water is a good analogy, where it might be experienced as either vapour, liquid or solid. But rather than restate these observations, I will leave these considerations to the discussions below.

For those not familiar with Elysium’s Passage (novel series), let me clarify that most of these discussions happen in an alternative Sixth Dimension reality. James, the protagonist, finds himself in this world with a couple of others, even while his physical earth plane body remains in a coma in London.

SUMMARY OF ELYSIUM'S PASSAGE: THE SUMMIT

.

undefined
 

 
This the first in a series of five Elysium narrations regarding a young British philosopher named James Phillips, who finds himself living in an altered state of reality while still remaining on earth.  

After experiencing a near-fatal fall while climbing to the summit of a remote mountain in the Andes, James awakens in a new dimension. He soon encounters two mysterious beings who provide him with a very different perspective on the nature of his existence. Over the next year, before his body recovers from the coma, he is challenged to re-examine his understanding of life’s meaning and purpose far beyond anything he previously believed or could believe.

An engaging and sometime surreal adventure with intimations of impending romance, the narrative explores the most important questions about life, death, reality, and our ultimate destiny. 

The Plains of Elysium (Champs-Élysées) was described by Homer, Hesiod, Virgil, and many other poets as the paradisiac afterlife realm reserved for heroes. As the title suggests, this is about a journey through a passage that leads towards Elysium’s exciting realm of existence.

The following comments are excerpts from among the first readers, including a number of Amazon five star reviews. To read the full reviews, go to READER REVIEWS on www.elysiumspassage.com or directly at https://digitalbloggers.com/arts-and-entertainment/reader-reviews 

"A delightful mix of fantasy, reality, conjecture, and humour; Mr Meyers draws the reader into the story with a gentle narrative that captures the imagination, leaving one anxious to get to the next page drawing you into his exceptional world.”

"Quietly, gently, and without imposition, the Author unfolds the pages, creating an intricate, interlocking bridge spanning the chasm between mind and heart. Renewing, refreshing, restoring. In my bereavement, it was vigil and light…"

“Excellently written with an exceedingly deep understanding of this world and the next. The characters are very well written and engaging. I can't wait to complete this book!"

“Takes the reader on both a philosophical and spiritual journey, a journey that at times is both disquieting and tranquil. James, a British Philosopher, can be irreverent and caustic, traits that should have left me cringing, but instead made me laugh out loud. Elysium’s Passage is a fun, enlightening and remarkable book.”

“This is a masterful fantasy, becoming a real possibility, as the reader is drawn into the story. The Summit leaves you anxious for the next book in the series, yet also leaves you totally satisfied with the world you have just visited. Genius! An exciting yet calming experience that is not to be missed."

"There was hardly a page on which I did not find at least one sentence worthy of hi-lighting for future reference. In addition, I thoroughly enjoyed the main character, James, whose personality and passionate verbal exchanges with the other characters, kept me coming back for more. I am reading the book for a second time while I wait for the next one in this series to be made available."

 “N.G. Meyers has clearly put a great deal of research and thought into what the afterlife may look like and I like his perspective. It’s an altogether welcoming and exciting vision. The book gives one a great deal to think about and a reassuring confidence that the end of our lives is truly the beginning of life in the next. I highly recommend it."

"I am really enjoying your book, it’s fantastic! It is so incredible and diversified that I can’t really explain it to other people, so what I say is just read this book. Thank you so much for the blessings that you’ve given the world!"

“The humour interjected into a serious discussion makes me laugh out loud. Totally unexpected....l may be in the presence of at least a master, if not a genius. A fair ride into reality... seeking that which is unseen, yet absolutely real.”

“An engaging story of adventure embracing man's deepest desire to search for meaning and purpose, N.G. Meyers takes the reader on an adventurous thought-provoking journey. This book has substance. It is a perfect blend of adventure and fantasy combined with spiritual philosophy. It ignited my imagination. The author magically weaves a good story laced with wit and humour together with deep philosophical wisdom. This book has it all!”

“An evolution in thought is triggered by many fresh philosophical themes which could inspire readers to re-think their reality and former ideologies that have dictated their lives… the author fires readers’ imaginations to view what could be possible when spirit vacates the body.”

“This is the book spiritual seekers have been waiting for. For me, it granted a great read as well as increased inspiration to live every day with a heightened sense of purpose. I highly recommend it.

“The Summit is capable of hooking readers and luring them to search for Book 2 to discover more about Dr. Philip’s surreal trek into the mysterious unknown universe. This thick book is well worth the read and to share…”

“Mind-blowing statements and speculation (‘…everyone is a non-physical thought form conceived in the Mind of God, preserved for all eternity because God’s thoughts never die…’). Many will find Meyers’ journey up the Mountain intriguing—and possibly even life-changing.” (BLUEINK REVIEW)

“In its effort to grapple with fundamental questions about the meaning of life, it raises questions that have echoed throughout the ages, including about where we come from, where we are going, who we are.”  (CLARION REVIEW)
