EARTH: FROM THE OUTSIDE LOOKING IN

Republished by Blog Post Promoter

This truly marvelous film gives us, the inhabitants of one tiny planet, lost among a nearly infinite number of planets in this physical universe, an extraordinary view of Earth from the outside looking in!  The basis of all of human stupidity and superstition revolves around the idea that WE ARE THE CENTER of the universe!  When we watch this simple film of the Earth from the OUTSIDE looking down, how can our myopic delusions of grandeur not be expelled once and for all?  It becomes immediately obvious that we, as physical universe organisms, inhabiting a blue speck of dust in space, are simply an infinitesimally, microscopically tiny organism in the macrocosm of the space, time, energy and matter of the physical universe!  In fact, there are a trillion, trillion planets floating within a billion, billion galaxies that are no less significant that Earth!

Yet, you and I, as Immortal Spiritual Beings, are, collectively, The Creators of it ALL!  The simple, obvious proof of this assertion is this:  If YOU can perceive it, YOU are creating it!

YOU’VE ALWAYS HAD THE POWER

“You’ve always had the power to go back to Kansas”–Glinda

                “Oh Dear! That’s too wonderful to be true!”–Dorothy

                “Now those magic slippers will take you home in two seconds. Just close your eyes and think to yourself, ‘There’s no place like home’.”–Glinda

                “Then why didn’t you tell her before”?–The Scarecrow

                “Because she wouldn’t have believed me. She had to learn it for herself.”–Glinda

                “If I ever go looking for my heart’s desire again, I won’t look any further than my own back yard, because if it isn’t there, I never really lost it to begin with.”–Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz”

                Like Dorothy in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ we are creatures of our own design. We live in universes created by our own agreements and imagination. We are inside the Physical Universe looking out to find the origin of our being. We long for a place we feel certain must exist; a place where there is no trouble. We wait for wizards and witches to show us the way home. Yet we fear to close our eyes and click our heels to see the Universe Within.

               Our journey home begins at the source of the rainbow; shining light upon our own eternal, ethereal selves.

               The history of mankind seems blanketed in a simultaneous state of amnesia and deja vu. The ruins of ancient civilizations whisper a reminder that we have forgotten everything we knew.

A multitude of gods have shown themselves like shadows in the halls of history. We know not yet, except by our own observation and decision, which of them is real. We are betrayed by those who teach us that we must trust the Wizards of the West. While pretentious politicians defend the castles of the Witch, the media monkeys swarm to spin perverted lies to cover up their covert tricks.

The voiceless bones of wonderful wizards have dissolved to mortal dust once more. Their words have vanished in the smoke of sacred libraries, searing our souls with the stupefying stench of wisdom lost forever in their flames. From day to day the timeworn treadmill of survival forces us to worship at the soulless bankers’ shrine. Gold is still the god of the great and powerful Oz.

We have crash-landed in a twisted alien landscape of pain and mortality, far away from our home Universe. As a race we have amnesia. We are repeatedly bumped on the head by the recurring cataclysmic upheavals of a planet whirling in space like a farmhouse in a tornado.

               The future is an extension of the present. We must live our lives in the present in a manner which will create the greatest good for the greatest number of beings in the future. If we are aware of our own past lives, we must also be aware that we are creating our own future by our present actions. We will inherit our own legacy.

               As Professor Marvel points out with simple eloquence, “There are no other wizards…”

               We are apparently the only wizards there ever were and the only wizards that ever will be. We are each a part of a time track of the past, present and future of our own creation, individually and collectively.              

               If we let the Wicked Witches run the culture now, they will be in charge of the place when we come back. Just as we are the descendants of past generations, you and I may very well become, through reincarnation, the children of our children–we are the future generations who will inherit the environmental and cultural conditions of the future which we ourselves are creating today.

               Man has apparently been searching the stars for a way to leave the Earth and go “over the rainbow” to a place where there is no trouble.

               Since before the beginning of our own dim primordial prehistory, we have been looking into the depths of our own immortal selves for a way “over the rainbow” back to YOUR OWN UNIVERSE–our own identity, simplicity and power as spiritual beings. This has been the dream of many religious philosophers throughout the ages.

               We still have not solved many of the mysteries of the physical universe. However, we can CHOOSE to see what’s in it. We can CHOOSE to disagree with what we see. We can CHOOSE to agree to the creation of a new and better universe.

               Dorothy and her friends have taught us a valuable allegorical lesson: Dorothy got herself into the Land of Oz, and she got herself back to Kansas, but she would not have made it without the help of her friends. If ever there will be a Yellow Brick Road, if ever there will be an Emerald City of which we can be proud, we must build it ourselves. “

TREE THOUGHT

TREE THOUGHT tree

“Thought is a force – a manifestation of energy – having a magnet-like power of attraction. You say “I” feel; “I” think; “I” believe; “I” know; “I” will; etc., etc. Now which is the Real Self? The Mental States just mentioned, or the “I” which is the subject or Real Cause of the mental phenomena? It is not the Mind that knows, but the “I” which uses the Mind in order to know. “

HEAVEN IS BORINGMortality Mechanics' Manual

~ from the book “Mortality Mechanics Manual

“I am not The One. I am not The Creator. Yet, I am holy and sacrosanct. I am more important and more powerful than The Gods. Why? You say that I am!  I control your existence. Why?  Because I promised you relief from eternal boredom, from the perpetual responsibility of self-amusement. Therefore, you follow my instruction without question.

Why? Because you claim you cannot bear to endure Eternity as The One.  You offer me your trust and praise. You submit yourself to pain, anguish, amnesia and mystery. Why?  Because you choose Not To Be. Your stupidity is its own reward and punishment.  Your decadence ensures your slavery.  Mortality is the key to your prison.”

“Do you desire Immortality? Do you desire to break the cycle of birth, life, pain, death, rebirth and endless, unwinnable games in the physical universe?

You must decide to Be Nothing. Be responsible for your own Boredom. Create Your Own Universe. Disagree with Agreement. Admire Your Self. Create and find Joy in your games, your dreams, your illusions.

Can you hover over a mountaintop for ten thousand years? Can you pretend, like a child, that your best friend is a ghost? Can your best friend be You?

The solution to Mortality is Being You:  The Immortal Creator.”
