The Paradox of Surrender

Love is the mother energy that surrounds, supports, and maintains all dimensions and all physical reality. Like a current of light it pushes against every barrier, seeps through our closed eyes, flows around and caresses our physical form. It is present in every atom. But as long as we believe in the illusion of separation, we stand like impassive stones in the stream of Love.

Unplug From the Matrix The Avatars of Eden

Freedom Comes From Self-love

Some years ago, I had a sudden insight. It fell into my mind one day, like a leaf falling into the still water of a lake:

“What if life is not a battle, but a love story?”

This deceptively simple question changed everything.

The Matrix keeps us in a constant state of war with ourselves and with each other. Freedom, the goal of all those who seek higher awareness, can’t be gained in battle — freedom can only come from self-love. Self-love is unconditional. You don’t love yourself because of what you do, what you know, or even because of who you are; you love yourself as God does: for the mere fact of your existence. No one can give you freedom; you have to earn it. Not by battling, not by hard work; freedom can be obtained only by surrendering.

From Trauma to Trust

If you had a child that had been traumatized, you would not be able to convince him that the world is safe. Collectively, humanity is at this point; we have been traumatized by our descent into the darkness of fear and separation.

Love is not an emotion; it is a feeling, a kind of knowing, a sense of security. Emotions are conditional, feelings are unconditional. Emotions belong to a lower consciousness, and feelings come from a higher consciousness. Something has to precede love, to set the stage, so to speak, so Love can arrive; we must leave the limitation of thought and enter the wide-open space of intuition and feeling. The feeling that must precede Love is Trust. Trust opens the Heart so it can receive Love.

The Mission of Your Higher Self

The Prime Directive
The mission of the Higher Self is paramount.

You can manifest only when your personal desires are aligned with the plan of your Higher Self.

The process of transmuting a lower density reality into a higher density one involves conscious intent and alignment between the duality-based self with the Higher Self. As we align our personal desires with the intent of our Higher Self, we achieve perfect communication, equality, and partnership with it. Spirit is ready to be integrated into the body of matter — for all the parts of man to come into perfect harmony and partnership with each other.

Using Emotions as Creative Tools

Resistance creates stability while desire accelerates change. We can use emotions to control the speed of our experience; fear slows it down, while desire speeds it up.

NEGATIVE: Resistance / Emotions = More Time (slower) = Heavier = Stability
POSITIVE: Desire / Feelings = Less Time (faster) = Lighter = Change

Emotions are frequency. The scale below rates emotions from the heaviest, Fear, to the lightest, Joy.*

…As we ascend in consciousness, we move up the emotional scale; the movement, like an incoming tide, slowly advances over time, erasing the evidence of the waves as it goes. The higher consciousness of the New Earth is defined by positive emotions. In the scale above, the shift to the new paradigm starts at number seven — contentment. The lower two thirds of the scale will be eventually out of range, and disappear from our experience.

Resistance and Fear as Part of the Program of Duality

Everything in creation is programmed with at least a small amount of resistance. Resistance creates time; time allows experience; experience fuels evolution. If some form of resistance were not present, everything would follow its primal and powerful desire — drawn like a moth to a flame — to dissolve back into Oneness. In man, fear has developed to help us resist that pull and stay in the physical; it stops us at the edge of the powerful vortex — the event horizon — of the Beloved.

…Death is not our core fear. We are afraid that we will lose our hard-won consciousness. Fear is the “gravity” that keeps us from leaving the game of density too soon.

The Beloved

Jake Sully: She talks about a network of energy that flows through all living things. She says that the energy is only borrowed; one day you have to give it back.

Love and the Beloved
Evolution is the passage of consciousness through the abstraction of time. Like a seed planted in the fertile ground of duality, awareness grows from the experience of separation. The flower of evolution is the individual, and the nectar of the flower is self-awareness. Infinite Mind returns as a bee to drink the nectar and pollinate the plant, and so the spiral of creation continues to expand.

Breaking the Spell

Social media has prepared us for community thinking by giving us a way to express our opinions and individuality within a virtual social structure; as we do, we learn that our actions within a community can have consequences (good or bad) and thus we learn transparency. Social consciousness and transparency is the basis of what I call “natural ethics,” which is the code underlying the social structure of any real community. Our technology has prepared us for a new, more empowered system as collectively, we begin to imagine a different future. We are poised to break the spell of the Matrix.

The Code of Eden

[Conway] was particularly interested, as a student of affairs, in the way the valley population was governed; it appeared, on examination, to be a rather loose and elastic autocracy operated from the lamasery with a benevolence that was almost casual. It was certainly an established success, as every descent into that fertile paradise made more evident.

Conway was puzzled as to the ultimate basis of law and order; there appeared to be neither soldiers nor police, yet surely some provision must be made for the incorrigible?

Chang replied that crime was very rare, partly because only serious things were considered crimes, and partly because every one enjoyed a sufficiency of everything he could reasonably desire. In the last resort the personal servants of the lamasery had power to expel an offender from the valley — though this, which was considered an extreme and dreadful punishment, had only very occasionally to be imposed. But the chief factor in the government of Blue Moon, Chang went on to say, was the inculcation of good manners, which made men feel that certain things were “not done,” and that they lost caste by doing them.

“You English inculcate the same feeling,” Said Chang, “in your public schools, but not, I fear, in regard to the same things. The inhabitants of our valley, for instance’ feel that it is ‘not done’ to be inhospitable to strangers, to dispute acrimoniously, or to strive for priority amongst one another. The idea of enjoying what your English headmasters call the mimic warfare of the playing-field would seem to them entirely barbarous — indeed, a sheerly wanton stimulation of all the lower instincts.”

Conway asked if there were never disputes about women.

“Only very rarely, because it would not be considered good manners to take a woman that another man wanted.”

“Supposing somebody wanted her so badly that he didn’t care a damn whether it was good manners or not?”

“Then, my dear sir, it would be good manners on the part of the other man to let him have her, and also on the part of the woman to be equally agreeable. You would be surprised, Conway, how the application of a little courtesy all round helps to smooth out these problems.”

Certainly during visits to the valley Conway found a spirit of goodwill and contentment that pleased him all the more because he knew that of all the arts that of government has been brought least to perfection. When he made some complimentary remark, however, Chang responded: “Ah, but you see, we believe that to govern perfectly it is necessary to avoid governing too much.”

“Yet you don’t have any democratic machinery — voting, and so on?”

“Oh, no. Our people would be quite shocked by having to declare that one policy was completely right and another completely wrong.”

The Code of Eden
The vitality and happiness of the inhabitants of Shangri-La is due to the application of their philosophy. Note that they do not have laws; instead they have customs. A custom is a code of behavior that originates from the “bottom up” — from the people — while a law originates from the “top down” — from rulers or government. A custom is observed; a law must be enforced: a custom assumes adult behavior, while a law presupposes criminal behavior.

The New Currency (part 3)

Prosperity is the natural experience of a higher-level being; universal abundance is the fundamental expression of an enlightened people. Money becomes what it should be: a gush of abundance that flows into each nook and cranny of the New Earth, supporting the transition back to a veritable Eden, with plenty for all.

The New Currency (part 2)

If the underlying intent of a system changes, the whole structure above it is transformed. If we replace competition and greed with cooperation and sharing, we end up with a new paradigm: an enlightened culture. Eden encourages sharing as an expression of its mandate of expansion and flow. The power of Love can infuse money; when it does, it returns money back to its original meaning: a means of exchange between people. No longer dammed with greed, the currency of the planet flows like the natural resource that it represents.

In elementary architecture, an arch is built of stones that remain together because they all press into the keystone, the central stone at the summit. The keystone is the “key” that locks the whole arch together. If you remove it, the arch crumbles.

The key to the Matrix:
“Limited resources controlled by a few.”

The key to New Eden:
“Universal abundance, shared by all.”

The Enduring Legend of Eden

PREFACE

This book is the sequel to a book I wrote in 2014, called Unplug From the Matrix, which depicted a Matrix-like world of domination and control.

The Avatars of Eden proposes an alternative vision; a future of peace, harmony, and abundance for all, embedded in our minds as the ancient legend of Eden.

PROLOGUE

Our great mother does not take sides, she protects the of life.

~ Neytiri, “Avatar”

The Enduring Legend of Eden

The ancient legend of Eden is based upon an older universal myth, an idyllic place of timeless beauty, a Paradise, sometimes called the Otherworld.

In ancient Egypt, the Otherworld was called Aaru, the reed-fields of ideal hunting and fishing grounds where the dead lived after judgment. The Fortunate Isle of Mag Mell was the Paradise of the Celts. In ancient Greece, it was the Elysian fields; a land of plenty where the heroic and righteous dead hoped to spend eternity. The Eden of the British Isles was an island named Avalon. In Tibetan Buddhism it is called Shambala; a core concept that describes a realm of harmony between man and nature, connected with the Kalachakra or “wheel of time.

Eden Foretold

Every culture describes their version of Eden as a place of peace and plenitude. This story is a universal archetype that tells us that we once lived in harmony with nature, and can do so again. All the legends agree on one thing: Eden isn’t just a story from the remote past, Eden is our destiny.

Eden is Our Inheritance

There are many prophesies of the end of the world; regardless of their origin, overall they predict not the end of the Earth, or of man, but the end of the age of materialism. Most Hindus believe that the current era is the Kali Yuga, the last of four Yugas. Each Yuga has seen successive degeneration in the moral order, to the point that in the Kali Yuga quarrel and hypocrisy are the norm. However, the next period is forecast as a time of enlightenment and harmony:

~ ~ ~

After the Kali Yuga is the Satya Yuga, which in the eternal cycle of ages is defined as the first and best Yuga. It is the age of truth and perfection. Humans are gigantic, powerfully built, handsome, honest, youthful, vigorous, erudite and virtuous. There is no agriculture nor mining as the earth yields those riches on its own. Weather is pleasant and everyone is happy. There is no disease, decrepitude or fear. ~ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuga

The Rotten Belief at the Core of the Matrix

In duality we experience separation — separation from self-knowledge, from the Self, Source, All That Is. This simple fact of existence has been taken to the extreme and exploited by the rulers of the Matrix for personal gain. Their system relies upon the continued ignorance and spiritual immaturity of the populace; the world rulers are betting that you won’t see through their machinations. The Matrix keeps us in ignorance through our beliefs and fears; it tells us that inequality, greed, and exploitation are natural. When we believe that the Earth is a survival-based planet, we fear powerlessness and poverty. As we engage in fear, we reinforce and recreate the Matrix.

You are not Always Here

You are not always in material form, even when you are awake. Where are you? You are with your Higher Self. When you sleep, you spend some time with your Higher Self. Awake or asleep, you are getting information from it all the time, but many of us can’t hear its voice, because our programming drowns it out. This is what is meant by the phrase, “the quick and the dead,” which refers to the unconscious individual as “dead” and conscious beings as “quick” or alive. When you are acting and thinking through the fear-based structure of the Matrix, your emotions make you “dead” to the messages of your Higher Self. When you have surrendered to the greater intent of the Higher Self, you are able to communicate easily with it.

Your Higher Self

The Higher Self is the larger part of you, the part that could not come into this bubble reality. Let’s say that its energy was too big; its frequency was too high. Like trying to fit an adult foot into a child’s shoe, it could not fit the whole of itself into this dimension.

The physical self is the thought projection of the Higher Self; it projects an image of itself — an earthbound Avatar — into this reality. The Higher Self is the part that remains “outside” the bubble reality of the Matrix. It informs and nurtures you; without it, you would not be able to sustain your life-force

Playing With Omniscience

Consider the idea that your consciousness was present at the beginning of the universe, and that you are so vast that you know everything that there is to know. You are large and small at the same time. You are the creator and the created: in the same moment you are the Sun in the sky and a single molecule of water in the ocean.

Consider that the you that you think of as you is just an idea birthed in the mind of a larger You. And consider that perhaps the smaller version of you has been released as a scout to explore the unique properties of consciousness frozen in the density of matter.

And now consider that you are a god who has forgotten that he created the world he lives in. For some obscure reason, You allowed yourself to become a slave to your own creation.

Matter is Frozen Thought

The material realm is a way to freeze thought into form, objectify it, and allow it to exist in time and space as a separate object. As beings who are capable of “throwing” thought around in this manner, we needed an experimental space, a bubble reality that has the proper conditions for our experiment in consciousness. The danger has always been that we might lose our sense of our true self as we subject ourselves to the conditions of the experiment.

The universe is a cosmic dance of energy and form: Spirit twirls clockwise to form Matter, and Matter rotates counterclockwise as it dissolves back into energy.

The 5th Dimension as Imagined in the Movie Interstellar

In 2014, a film named Interstellar explored the possibility of a fifth dimension. In the movie, a future version of humanity that has evolved to higher consciousness comes “back” to save us. These 5th dimensional beings can see all points of time, and want to somehow convey their higher perspective to the protagonist, Cooper. They know that once he is within 5D, he will be able to go to the exact point in time to give his daughter critical information on how to save the Earth. Cooper sees the bookcase in his daughter’s bedroom as a tesseract (four-dimensional hypercube) which shows him a kaleidoscope of potential instances, all in the same space:

~ ~ ~

TARS: Somewhere, in their fifth dimension, they… saved us.

Cooper: Who the hell is they? Why would they want to help us, huh?

TARS: I don’t know, but they constructed this three-dimensional space inside of their five-dimensional reality to allow you to understand it.

Cooper: Well, it ain’t working.

TARS: Yes it is! You’ve seen that time is represented here as a physical dimension! You’ve worked out that you can exert a force across space-time!

Cooper: Gravity. To send a message.

The Weird Fifth Dimension

Just as the third dimension may be incomprehensible to an inhabitant of the second dimension, a higher dimension is very difficult for us to understand, because our minds are conditioned to a linear perspective of comfortable absolutes.

Imagine that you are standing in a room with two mirrors, each on an opposing wall: you see an infinite number of reflections of your image apparently stretching around the world in each direction. This is a metaphor for a singular timeline representing the 4th dimension.

Now, add a couple more facing mirrors on the other walls, and imagine that each of those instances of you from the first timeline represents a real potential you that is now reflected on its own timeline in the new mirrors; this is perception from the 5th dimensional perspective.
