I just finished reading the book “Prometheus Rising” by Robert Anton Wilson. I highly recommend this book for anyone who is interested in exploring and decoding the mind. The author has elegantly integrated the concept of the eight circuit model of consciousness proposed by Timothy Leary with mindfulness practice and the world of magic pioneered by Aleister Crowley.

This book dives deep into how we interface with our reality and explores how our beliefs and thoughts bring about our experiences. Alongside this book I was also researching habits. I was interested in how they are formed and how we can change them. It seems to me that these two books overlap each other in that our beliefs and culture dictate our daily habits and those in turn create our destiny. when I speak of destiny I am speaking of the trajectory of our lives. As our beliefs are understood and changed our reality tunnel begins to expand and change which opens the door for us to shift the directions our lives are taking. As we make tiny changes to our thoughts and actions it creates a tremendous wave of change that can turn the tides of life. Our beliefs are our reality and we can change them through mindfulness and practice. This is the real magic of life. Knowing oneself so deeply that we can hack into our own operating system and change the subconscious patterns that dictate our conscious waking life. The key to this world deep within our feelings, which we are not taught to understand fully in our culture. feelings are the tool with which we can reprogramme your subconscious control center and thus change our lives.

I vivedly remember the first time I watched the movie the labrinth as a child. It was so inspiring and creative in so many ways even then that I will never forget the forst time. Even now as time goes on I can relate moments and lessons in my life to scenes in that movie. The stand out character as everyone knows was the infamous goblin king played by David Bowie. The character he played in that movie just like the man in real life was spilling over with charisma and creative energy. David Bowie will always be an inspiration and influence and he will be greatly missed. RIP goblin king

Check this out and let me know what you think. It's a deleted scene from the film Avatar that depicts an entheogenic journey. Makes you wonder why it was deleted. Ayahuasca much?

The Door

The fire feeding the needs of the discontent, the pouring of false source filling the the mold of what is believed to be the norm. Raw iron smelt, cages formed. Inside the needs and wants of relations stew. communication is lost in the darkness of false isolation. perception of separation carries on the facade of illusion. The insatiable appetite for primal needs rules here in the crucible of preconception. The hope is in the cultivation of the seed. the age of iron and stone has passed. With gentle loving care the seed sprouts forth a kingdom of love and light, built of patience and natural law. Abundance thrives in the arms of the tree of life whose roots dismantle the kingdoms of old. The smelting fires are squelched. by the waters of the source the crucible grows cold. humanities relationship to the earth is restored the hunger of the emptiness of man is no more.
