Mooji - Concepts = Emptiness in Words

Manly P. Hall - The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Manly P Hall The Secret Teachings of All Ages

At the moment I'm reading 33rd degree Freemasonic historian Manly P. Hall's "The Secret Teachings of All Ages." It contains a wealth of esoteric information from the ancient mysteries, sun religions, and astrology, to the pyramids, consciousness, and philosophy.

Buy Ayahuasca/DMT

Prepared for several thousand years by the indigenous tribes of the South American Amazon, Ayahuasca mostly consists of the Psychotria viridis plant which has a significant amount of the known psychedelic agent, DMT. South American shamans would prepare the vines in a tea and prescribe the medicine to certain diseases or afflictions. It was also used by the shamans themselves to gain access to the Divine state. Many different levels of purity of the vine were available, and the shamans kept the most powerful vines strictly for spiritual worship.

Esther Hicks - The Astonishing Power of Emotions

I take all this "channeling" with a grain of salt, but lots of what she has to say resonates with me, so here you go.

Renaissance Radio Update

I am still working slowly on bringing Renaissance Radio back as a podcast, but the amount of time I have to dedicate to all this is dwindling due to lack of funds. Hours at my part-time job have just been cut, and book sales are relatively unimpressive, forcing me to spend most of my time whoring my free-lancing talents. I'm writing this as more an update and apology, but also a gentle plea for aid...

I have over 200,000 downloads of The Atlantean Conspiracy (which is encouraging), but only 51 hard-copies have been printed and sold. Many people cannot/will not read such a long book off their computer screen, and with threats of Internet 2.0 coming, having hard-copies of The Atlantean Conspiracy is a great asset in the info-war. Buy a copy for yourself or to pass around to your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers. Thanks to all my readers for their gracious support.

Support independent publishing: buy this book on Lulu.

Dr. Rudolf Steiner - How to Know Higher Worlds

How to Know the Higher Worlds, by Dr. Rudolf Steiner

Thanks to Daniel for introducing me to this excellent esoteric text full of such insightful passages as the following:

We must become accustomed to listening in such a way that we quiet our own inner life completely when we listen. For example, when someone expresses an opinion and another listens, agreement or disagreement usually stirs immediately within the listener. Often in such a situation we feel compelled to express our own opinion at once, especially if we disagree. However, on the path to higher knowledge we must learn to silence any agreement or disagreement with the opinions we hear. Naturally, this does not mean that we should suddenly change our way of life and strive to achieve this complete inner silence all the time. We must start with isolated instances that we choose intentionally. Then quite slowly and gradually, as if by itself, this new way of listening will become a habit. In spiritual research, we practice this new way of listening in a systematic way. As students, we should feel it our duty to set aside, as an exercise, certain times when we listen to the most contrary opinions, completely silencing within us all agreement and, especially, all negative judgments. Not only must we silence our intellectual judgment but also any feelings of disapproval, rejection,or even agreement. Above all, we must observe ourselves carefully to ensure that such feelings, even though absent from the surface of the soul, are not present in its inner-most depths. For example, we must learn to listen to the remarks of those who are in some way inferior to us, suppressing every feeling of superiority or knowing better.

Joe Rogan Vs. Crazy Lady

I had to post this as a follow-up to Rogan's DMT talk, and not that it has much relevance to theme of this blog, but this just cracks me up.

The Tao Te Ching - Ron Hogan Style

Ron Hogan's Updated Tao Te Ching is a great colloquialized, modernized version of the Tao creating such new classic translations like:

If you toss compliments around freely,
people will waste your time
trying to impress you.
If you give things too much value,
you're going to get ripped off.
If you try to please people,
you'll just make them pissed.
The Master leads
by clearing the crap
out of people's heads
and opening their hearts.
He lowers their aspirations
and makes them suck in their guts.
He shows you how to forget
what you know and what you want,
so nobody can push you around.
If you think you've got the answers,
he'll mess with your head.
Stop doing stuff all the time,
and watch what happens.

and my personal favorite:

Don't spend too much time
thinking about stupid shit.
Why should you care
if people agree or disagree with you?
Why should you care
if others find you attractive or not?
Why should you care
about things that worry others?
Call bullshit on all that.
Let other people
get worked up
and try to enjoy themselves.
I'm not going to give myself away.
A baby doesn't know how to smile,
but it's still happy.
Let other people
get excited about stuff.
I'm not going to hang on to anything.
I'm not going to fill my mind with ideas.
I'm not going to get stuck in a rut,
tied down to any one place.
Other people are clever;
I guess I must be stupid.
Other people have goals;
I guess I must be aimless.
Like the wind. Or the waves.
I'm not like other people.
I'm getting right with Tao.

Here's one of my favorite guys in the world, David Icke, doing a better job explaining the Law of Attraction than that entire Secret movie
