Are Your Thoughts Your Own?

secretsoftheserpent

I have had several questions about our thoughts.  If I say our brains are only receivers, where do are thoughts come from?  We all have thoughts.  Good thoughts and bad thoughts.  For the majority of us, our thoughts are very negative, fearful and anxious.  We all have thoughts that keep us from falling asleep or they wake us up in the middle of the night.  We as a human race worry.  Is this just part of being human?  Thought is an energy.  You are energy.  When it comes to energy likes attract.  Whatever your energy is, you will attract those thoughts.  You can monitor this by realizing the thoughts you are having is showing the energy you have at that moment or period of time.

Remember Who You Are

secretsoftheserpent

This post will be for the misfits.  The ones who don’t fit in.  At one point or another we all had that feeling.  Most people just let their soul die and do whatever it takes to fit in. We become a robot. This usually happens to us at a very young age.  We were not taught any different. It is the way we were brought up. Everyone loves to blurt out “Be Yourself!”  But as soon as someone does something out of the norm they get ridiculed, bullied and pushed away.  The ones that don’t conform are awake and go on wondering “Why am I here?” Sooner or later the ones that did conform get a wake up call and they either hit the snooze button and go back to being robots or they wake up.  The awake individuals are few and far…

Religion

secretsoftheserpent

Lets take a look at the definition of Religion: a strong belief in a supernatural power or powers that control human destiny, the belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, especially a god or gods, a pursuit of a belief or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance. I just summarize it by saying it is anything outside of you that you let control your mind.  Those of you who know me know I am not against being spiritual.  Spirituality is figuring out the truth of reality and trying to grasp it.  Trying to find the truth of the universe, nature and ourselves and bringing it all together.

The Herd

secretsoftheserpent

I have received several emails telling me I’m to hard on the masses.  Am I?  If I am too hard the masses it is because conformity deadens the human spirit.  Conformity is the imitation of behaviors,  beliefs and values that are considered socially acceptable.  The trap that most fall into is they reject things out of the desire to just be ‘different’.  So they accept something from yet another external source to be part of a different group.  The leaders of this world have successfully put people into to groups where they think they are alike.  The human race has become different groups of domesticated mammals.  That is the definition of a Herd.

Illiteracy Leads To Censorship

Illiteracy leads to censorship

by Jon Rappoport

June 6, 2018

“…intellectual freedom is a deep-rooted tradition without which our characteristic western culture could only doubtfully exist. From that tradition many of our intellectuals are visibly turning away. They have accepted the principle that a book should be published or suppressed, praised or damned, not on its merits but according to political expediency. And others who do not actually hold this view assent to it from sheer cowardice.” (George Orwell, 1953)

When those who control public discourse, in a nation, see that they are losing to upstarts, that their flimsy ideas are being supplanted by much stronger ideas from these newcomers (who are actually traditionalists), the shocked controllers turn to the more direct strategy of censorship.

In terms of substance, and even popularity, the ministers of truth are losing; so they abandon reasoned discourse altogether. They desert this fertile, competitive, and…

After mass shootings: they’re not just coming for guns, they’re coming for brains

After mass shootings: they’re not just coming for guns, they’re coming for brains

By Jon Rappoport

“Planners intent on deploying mind control follow a pattern. They claim they’re curing brain disorders. They’re doing valuable work. They’re only focusing on a tiny percentage of the population. But then, as you dig deeper, you discover they’re really talking about all human beings, who are, unfortunately, wired in the wrong way and can’t ascend to the next level of societal evolution. Therefore, ‘brain science’ has to engage in a wholesale program to retrofit the human species.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

A January 2018 National Geographic article runs a bold headline: THE SCIENCE OF GOOD AND EVIL.

The lead sentence carries considerable freight: “Researchers have found that the way our brains are wired can affect how much empathy we feel toward others—a key measuring stick of good and evil.”

Good and evil—suddenly transferred to…

By Phoenix of Elder Mountain – Holistic healing of the Mental Body / Mind is generally the first approach to the spiritual path, especially when dealing with any mind, body or emotional body issues. Learning to Silence and Quiet the Minds insistent call of mind-noise, distractions and attention getting behaviors. We heal by learning to listen if a talker and sharing if we are a more silent or shy person.

For those not in crisis, there are silent retreats (Vispasana) and peaceful heart and a more committed Buddhist Mediation practices in which there are several. Some of the issues the mental body has are more severe and should be addressed with a talk therapist first. Only those who do not like medications and are firmly committed to practices everyday, should consult a holistic healer or shaman.

Freedom From Within

The real tragedy of our time lies not so much in the unprecedented external events themselves as in the unprecedented ethical destitution and spiritual infirmity which they glaringly reveal.

No Self Is An Island

By Kingsley Dennis

‘No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main’ … John Donne

Whether we like to admit it or not, we need other people. Other people in our lives help to teach us about who we are. Their actions and attitudes are like a mirror that reflects to us not only aspects of human behaviour but also facets of our social conditioning.

It is said that our most dominant feature as humans, and similarly our most ignored facet, is that when we are speaking about other people, or things, we are actually speaking about ourselves. Because of this blindness we actually need other people in order to project ourselves onto them. And then perhaps in some moment of clarity we will gain the insight that our descriptions of others are in fact descriptions of ourselves. It is through our social environment and connections that a light may eventually shine back at us.
