BOOK RELEASE! Toxic Rainbows out now!

MATRIXTHOUGHTS01

I’m very happy to announce the release of my first book, Toxic Rainbows.

I have so many feelings and thoughts associated with what I’ve written that I struggle with even giving it an elevator pitch that does it justice.  It’s philosophical, psychological, spiritual, autobiographical–it’s a manual for gaining clarity in a world that is designed to distract and distort perception.

As I wrote, I realized that I had been keeping mental notes my whole life on what I had been learning, observing and understanding about myself and human nature. The pain and confusion I saw around me compelled me to further understand why so many were in a delusional loop of cognitive dissonance and selective outrage. What had happened?

For years I had been slowly moving toward a life of spirit and nature and attempting to understand the meaning of faith.  But when my life dramatically cracked open and I was faced with a life and death situation, everything I had questioned and wondered about was revealed to me and I was given all the answers I sought.

The awakening I experienced allowed me to see my past, future and the world around me with much more clarity and I finally understood the meaning and feelings of faith.

Toxic Rainbows is available on Amazon.

Emergency Trigger Alert

PresidentialAlert01Yesterday we got our first ‘Presidential Alert’ message on the Wireless Emergency Alert System similar to Flood Warnings and Amber Alerts. We’ve all gotten them before.

But this one was different because it was from our President.

I was not surprised  that polarized people took to social media within seconds to voice their outrage, disgust and feelings of violation. One woman on Twitter even went so far as to say she’d been ‘raped’ by the intrusive alert. #MeToo echoed every other triggered SmartPhone user–Android, iPhone…didn’t matter. It was cross-platform abuse.

It’s hard to avoid making this a political commentary, but what I’m getting at is the level of rage that people are experiencing and how they are choosing misery over anything else. I’ve seen many level-headed people loose their stuff over the past couple of years.  Clear examples of cognitive dissonance and denial of reality had taken the driver’s seat and common sense and reason had been thrown out the back door.  Conversation or attempts at understanding was not even an option and has been routinely denied. It was very strange and the unusual behavior inspired me enough to write a book, but more than that, it’s concerning.

When people on your echo chambers of choice and social media spheres share their negativity, it should not inspire others to jump on board their misery train. Misery and pain of triggered individuals is not something that should inspire others to find it within themselves to be unahappy too.

These behaviors that throw us in a tailspin are things that we need to pay close attention to. We need to understand why we react as we do and how we are processing the information we’re gathering to come to conclusions that necessitate violence and intolerance.

It has come to the point where we need to stand together. And if it’s not all of us, we need to stand and assist those who do not see, understand or are under a programmed belief system.

Writing a book was one way I felt I could do something positive to counteract the negativity and division promoted by entertainment, the media and television programming and ‘news’.  My book Toxic Rainbows is just being released to different outlets and is currently available at Kobo.

They Are Sooo Unhappy

MATRIXTHOUGHTS02

It seems that I can’t get out of the house without experiencing the pain of others.  I deleted my Facebook account last year to escape the pain and noise of the echo chamber that it is, but even walking into public, people appear beat-up and defeated.

Only yesterday I made the mistake of allowing an acquaintance’s Instagram post interfere with my thoughts and her update haunted me all day. The post was a photo of the sky, a beautiful clear, blue sky with a caption that read, “I am just about infuriated at how beautiful today is.” One more in a continuous stream of angry posts.  I had to comment, “Don’t almost be mad.”  It’s as if people require anguish in their lives and when even nature does not comply, they rebel and insist on locating that elusive misery.

 

A few hours later I ran into an old friend and somehow the subject came around to him saying, “Everyone is unhappy.”.  I didn’t know if he was being very honest or trying to make a joke, so I asked him to clarify and he said, “Yeah…everyone is unhappy including myself.” All I could think of was, “Not him too!”.

Each day gives me more purpose and makes me feel more dedicated to turning people around. Making them remember or to see through the fog of the delusion that it doesn’t have to be as miserable as they seem to be experiencing.

My book will be release in October 2018 and I’m very much looking forward for those in need to discover it and start to change their lives for the better. Let’s be done with this misery!

Look for Toxic Rainbows: Surviving and Thriving in the New Babylon on Amazon soon. Stat tuned.

Is More Not Enough? What’s Missing? – Book Excerpt

My book, TOXIC RAINBOWS will release this Fall as an ebook.  Enjoy this excerpt.

RINGS

We are living in a time of relative abundance, excess and opportunity, yet we continue to feel deprived and left wanting for more.  What is it that’s missing? Can it be satisfied by shopping, having another child, redecorating?

This empty feeling and searching for substance is brilliantly depicted in Orson Welles’ classic film Citizen Kane and was more recently explored in Ridley Scott’s All The Money In The World.  We see in these film characters a desperation to possess an unnamable something.  Similarly, we sense a feeling of lack, but don’t know where it’s coming from or know what to fill it with.

We often falsely base success and privilege on material gains.  We wrongly assume that if someone is driving an expensive car and lives in the most posh part of town that he is happy and ‘has it all’. But what we will come to better understand and what you may already know or sense is that the ‘All’ can’t be bought, yet the ‘All’ that we desire and yearn for is not unobtainable.

Accessing the ‘All’ defies status, culture and race.  The ‘All’, the thing that brings clarity, vision, and empathy is the same thing that creates fulfillment and provides the missing piece of the puzzle we are all in search of.

Different cultures and religions both ancient and contemporary have referred to this force within us and it’s concepts may not be so far removed from our understanding as we might think.

Spirit Energy. Life Force. Soul Consciousness. Quintessence.  Intuition. Whatever you want to call it and however it’s been referred to throughout the ages, it is here to stay and it’s still just as powerful as it’s ever been.

Imagine having a key that has the potential to open any door imaginable.  A key that when used eliminates negative feelings and gives meaning to your life.  The spark of spirit energy within each of us is that key.

This book is a roadmap that will illustrate how paths taken and systems of belief can lead to success and happiness or abject failure.  I’ve been on both sides.

Toxic Rainbows – Fall 2018 Release

ToxicRainbows Book
Toxic Rainbows coming in Fall 2018.

Toxic Rainbows is a book I had no intention of writing, but it came out of necessity.  It wrote itself after a few years of self-reflection and contemplation of how as a society we are to function spiritually in a world where spiritual transformation plateaus with a hollow meme or a proficiency at yoga.

I am a Generation X writer with the perspective of having experienced life pre- and post-internet. The remarkable experience for some of us was watching life unfold as a veil of delusion was constructed around us. We have the capacity for second sight because we can see the realities of two worlds, the truth and a manufactured delusion.

The delusion, often referred to as The Matrix, suffocated, obscured and redefined words and reality as we knew them. An ever creeping and pervasive artificiality and disconnection was my inspiration in seeking answers to life’s most enduring questions which led to my studying works of an esoteric nature, psychology, philosophy and religion.

Toxic Rainbows is based on my experience of growing up outside of a system we are now mired in, entering into it and finally extricating myself from it by understanding how I became a part of the system and how we had become enslaved by it.

Toxic Rainbows is a book about awareness and self discovery that offers revelations and sometimes unpleasant truth that pertains to everyone. It is a manual for escape and a guide for obtainng the joy and freedoms that are missing from so many of our lives. It’s an alternate route to a much better Oz, a place where true enlightenment can be obtained without fear of falling victim to the falseness that surrounds us or the trappings of the faux New Age.

Follow my blog for excerpts and news on the book release. I will also be posting updates to Instagram.

The True Way To Accessing Your Natural Ability and Potential

Last night before I turned out my light, I contemplated the idea of potential and natural ability. What is it that drives us? What are the things that we gravitate to that are inspired by our own desires and not of the influences forced upon us? How do we truly flourish when we feel others should come before us? Or if we take credit for something we didn’t actually do or express a thought that didn’t come from our own mind?

How DO we access our true potential without giving in to pressures or taking an easy way out to obtain limited or imagined success? By this I mean, when we limit our potential by following a dream that is not our own or when we go along with ‘the plan’ because we don’t want to rock the boat–that is, when we function only as a contributor to someone else’s potential and success and not our own. It may feel good to be part of the ‘team’, but as individual creators it does not serve us.

With these thoughts in mind, I did a reading to gain more clarity and answers for people who may be struggling with this issue. Firstly, we need to understand ourselves and know precisely what it is we desire to accomplish. What actions need to be taken to reach our full potential?

The cards offered a remarkable response.

DSC03793

To access our natural ability and harness our true potential, we need to think like The Hanged Man.

The Hanged Man tells us that there is an inner peace, serenity and happiness in being misunderstood. He is content in knowing that he is furthering his own agenda and spiritual growth by following what his heart tells him.

The Hanged Man is not distressed by how others perceive him. Though he may be ridiculed, shunned, shamed and ostricized, he does not allow himself to be swayed or pressured out of his own beliefs. He is okay being the butt of a joke because he knows he is doing what is right for himself whether others understand him or not.

The Hanged Man’s peace comes from being true, sincere and authentic.

Once we can appreciate the serenity that comes with sometimes being misunderstood, wisdom will come from the experience that is obtained by cutting our cords of attachment to things that no longer serve us.

Temperance is about balancing what is in our hearts and our minds.  We can obtain equilibrium by giving to others, but we need to give to ourselves as well to maintain balance.

DSC03792

Most telling about this reading is the appearance of the three cards above. They are the only three cards in the entire deck that have someone turned fully around and walking away. These three are in step and actively leaving the scene.

If we are to allow our nature to blossom and tap into our full potential, we must not allow the the words of others to stop us. We can’t always expect others to help us in our endeavors and we can’t expect even loved ones to side with us.

DSC03791We need to walk away from people and situations that are not in alignment with our desires. We have to know that the extra work, dissenting voices and even times of loneliness are all contributing to what is best for us. It gives us strength, fortitude and eventually, the calm of The Hanged Man.

And in the end, we don’t even need to say “I told you so.” because people will know who was correct all along.

Are We Poisoning Ourselves With ‘Goodness’?

POLARIZED
I like to think that most people are genuinely caring individuals who strive for fairness and encourage love of their fellow man. Deep down, I think we all want that, but sometimes it drives us to imbalance.  We start to see injustice wherever we look and choose not to see when things are actually going well for us. Our good intentions of ‘righting a wrong’ by becoming angry or emotional simply creates more of the negative vibration we seek to eliminate.

Everything Vibrates. Vibrational energy works in a two-fold way. It is put out and attracts more of a similar type energy (good or bad), it builds on the expended energy and returns to the source with more than it started out with. So if you put positive out, you get more in return. This holds true with whatever type of energy expressed by either your thoughts or actions.

I did a reading yesterday that exemplified this idea.

DSC03638

DSC03636The Reading: When we become so blinded by doing what we think is ‘right’ that we go out of our way to hurt, silence or destroy the ability for others to express themselves, we are treading in a deeply delusional space.

We celebrate and feel a sense of victory when we are with like minded participants, but the victory will not be authentic until you walk with your perceived enemy. When that is done you will both have a better understanding and respect for one another that will transcend bitterness, anger and jealousy.  If we avoid confronting issues that put our belief systems in jeopardy, we will be like the Fool who had his chance at spiritual growth, but ignored the opportunity and fell to his doom.

Our short lived victories will ring hollow and in the end we will see that our emotions and denial of nature have left us with nowhere left to go. We’ve reached a dead end that can only be transformed when we go back, understand the lunacy of our behavior, take the hand of our enemy and walk together.

Tech Devices: Our Self-Imposed Slavery

ENSLAVE

Modern day slavery exists and our captors care nothing of our race, gender, social or economic background. They are unmoved and non-biased. This is something I think about quite a bit and it doesn’t seem like one day can go by when I feel the screws tightening.

DSC03574 (1)Today in came in the form of an article about St. Louis University installing surveillance devices, 2,300 of them, into every dorm room for this coming semester. The devices, are of course marketed as ‘assistance’ tools that answer questions about the campus. Just like everything that is bad for us, we accept it because they’re ‘cool’ or we’re programmed into believing we ‘need’ them and they’ll ‘protect’ us. Eventually we don’t even notice they’re there because we never said “No.”.

These devices, naturally, are supplied by Am_zon and are Al_xa-enabled Ec_o Dots.  They claim that ‘no personal data is stored’, but they’ve had problems with these devices storing and using the data for advertising purposes in the past. And didn’t we just recently watch as Mark Zuckerberg purgered himself in front of the Senate’s Commerce and Judiciary committees–or at the very least deny things he was fully aware of?

zuck-data

I don’t like to bring up these kind of things, but this is what is being put in place to destroy our souls and take us further from understanding our purpose. It atrophies our minds and gives us no reason to think for ourselves. This is the enslavement that so many of us accept as normal or choose to believe that it doesn’t affect us.

Break the chains, disconnect from your devices, unplug, stop the streaming programming…or at least start paying attention to how much you rely on technology to do the thinking for you. Save your temple. Refuse to be the product.

Suicidal Thoughts: Looking At Our Pain With Fresh Eyes

At the beginning of the year I made a prediction that I did not want to come true, but in the intervening months I saw one confirmation after the next that I was not off the mark. I predicted that there would be a major increase in suicides.

My prediction may have been partly intuitive and partly based on an awareness of a general decline in happiness and a compulsion for some to embrace low frequency behaviors and ideology. The combination of low karmic energy and repetitive programming of negativity could not end well, thus my prediction of suicide.

Today I was reminded of an acquaintance who killed himself last year. I thought of all that he had going for him and what he had to offer the world and it got me to thinking again of the many people who feel as if suicide is the answer to seemingly insurmountable problems.

In the past I have suffered from the darkest of depressions and I know the feelings attached to this type of pain.  I also know that what we keep at the forefront of our minds will express itself in our outward reality. Our pain does not have to be there.

I understand that people have different reasons for their thoughts and our experiences are radically different, but I felt compelled to do a reading that might shed some light on why some of us are thinking the way we are and what we can do to elevate ourselves from these thoughts.

If you have any questions about the reading below, please feel free to leave a question in the comment section.  If you are having suicidal thoughts, please contact someone qualified to talk with you more about it.

THE READING:

DSC03438

While I was shuffling the cards I got the impression that LOVE would be a major factor in why people harm themselves.  The cards did reveal elements of love and they are strongly present, but I was surprised to be shown that the predominant factor for self-harm revolve around the superficial.

There is a feeling associated with living that could be described as ‘half empty’ and leaning toward finding what doesn’t work as opposed to what is already working.

There is a certain amount of comparisons being made in what others have and accomplished and what is desired and unfulfilled in those currently struggling with happiness.

Happiness, success and legitimacy is gauged by the amount of ‘things’ and money one has to show for themselves.  There is almost a complete lack of thought behind these conclusions and emotions are being built up over things that have no shelf life or lasting significance.

DSC03440

There is an unwillingness to see the importance of mistakes and the work involved in reaching greater heights. Focus lingers on low energy attempts at success that lead to failure and increased focus on the successes of others which lead to feelings of unfairness.

Predominant thoughts surrounding lack permeate the reading.  The feelings of perceived fairness in life and the distribution of love and money appear to be dominant.

fool

Takeaway:
Don’t be blinded by the glittering prizes of the mundane world that speak only of superficiality. They don’t last.

Embracing the superficial is turning your back on your authenticity, which in turn will not lead to love or happiness. It will attract inauthentic people and temporary friendships.

Difficult, sometimes painful work is necessary to succeed. Without acknowledging your mistakes as steps closer to your desires, you will always remain the Fool.

The Fool is unconcerned, not because he is an actual ‘fool’, but he moves through life willing to learn from the pitfalls he encounters. He approaches life with positivity.  If he doesn’t learn valuable lessons put before him, the second time around he may actually step off the edge of the cliff–willingly or because he just never paid attention.
