Creation as Solitaire

June 11th, 2018

A human is an object/force with amazing potential for creation but unable to be conscious of that potential, will, drive or force as one image now.  Traditionally we make up stories to entertain that potential knowing that the stories could be possible but not necessarily true.  In the world of magic, a world where creation is imagined at will, we would need every potential of will represented.  Remember, stuff is an assignment and referenced to a location which makes it consistent—same place and same stuff—but energy is a force with movement or at least the potential for change.  I model this imagined idea of assignment to a limitation in potential for energy at a location as a compression or a type of holding of the force.  Subsequent to the assignment or the act of compression would be the restoration to energy, or decompression known as entropy.   If we imagine a balance of both form and potential for change we would need empty space to accommodate this perception.  This is just my model to understand what I’m not able as a human to “know” and not something anyone needs to believe as true.

A creation now for the game of life would need to be whole, all possible and perhaps assigned to a large location like the universe.  Every sub-location would reflect a different potential for the complete creation.  Every version or stream of possible human would reflect that limitation of all possible by the nature of the location attended to and the stream attending.  Now we have an imagined game with structure and it is playable.  Every version of player and every version of move would be contained within the system.  Within the context of the created structure (the rules or guidelines) you could experience any potential.  This is why I teach securing the concept of “no” and “done”—the nature of regulations.  Every location would offer a potential but only the version contained with the players stream.  It would be wise to have a sense of how your version of being would respond to a potential before you attend to that location.  This is why I teach securing “we” to sample those potential.  Simple steps: learn to know you (your marker or version), secure your relationship with the structure (attend to possible moves or change) and discover what a potential at a location has to offer by observing someone else residing there.  If you sample their version of being while they are at a location you would have a clue of how your version would differ at that same location.  The more folks or players you sample the better you will become at projecting your outcome in potential at that same location.

Is the universe really inside of “us” or is that imagined stream of sensory data describing a “real” universe somewhere outside?  Can you imagine a game of solitaire so complex and what would you use for markers to distinguish all the imagined players?  Only a god could do that.

Part 2 of Assignments, Stories & Models

May 25th, 2018

This present series of blogs is about magic.  I’m simply defining magic as creation at will.  Creation being the act of imagination and will be the act of intention.  To have intention you need someone to attend and some attention.  If you are conscious, present here now, and attending to anything, it may take a little time, but you can imagine it different.  This is the fun part.  Our ability to be conscious is limited and distraction is immense.   We may zoom in on what we are attending to and gain discernment but lose range.  We may zoom out and gain a larger range but lose all the details.  And with limited consciousness the expanse of range has limitation.  Some of the distractions are very important, some cautions and others opportunities to entertain.  But life is movement and balance and said movement produces the concept of time.  Somewhere in your vast unconscious are unique meta patterns for you that tune in how long (time), how much (size), how to sort (preference), and a few others.  Is it becoming obvious that control is also an illusion?  We start to label, by sharing or assigning, everything that catches our attention.  We created a digital symbolic system, language, to represent and share this database and we have an automatic (unconscious) program that will search and reveal data.  The default for this search engine that is always working (intuition) is familiar.  Variation in standards for searching for data may be assigned to different definitions or roles for the same individual and we title this states.  Artists, craftsmen, professionals are all proof that this default may be expanded but over time it condenses and alters data to conserve space and energy.  Yes, the assigned name makes the data an object which then has entropy and decays.  Those unconscious meta markers change in how they perceive value also over time and this influence is called memes.  Nothing is spared change, which is why I state life is about movement.  Essential to movement is balance and essential to balance is a relationship with ambient.  We are social by design, do set-ups in steps (may be unconscious) to accomplish an improvement in our relationship to our perception of value and accept most shared assignments to expedite this process.

The shared assignments in this illusion produce a relationship that we call reality.  With all the space around the unique point we allude to as self secured in titles or structure, we may begin to explore the interiority of that point of self.  How long did it take us humans, or better, how much movement did it take to arrive?  Being here now and looking inside is called trust.  Most humans are still in movement with anger, confusion, frustration and every other version of misdirected energy we call illness.  We have used that created tool of language to generate stories about all the above and they help some.  If you can generate an image, an exact but size-reduced model of the whole vision above and entertain it within a range of attention, with this trust, you could say you understand.  Life is simple—one image and lots of movement.

How to Create and Limit

April 29th, 2018

We know that science is based on objectified, predictable and consistent ideas.  This becomes part of what we term structure or rules; the “truth” for now.  Did you know that the speed of light, force of gravity and most of those other ideas of “truth” in fact vary regularly?  The consistency of these ideas is an assignment.  Someone is assigned the power to set a standard.   To explore this process of assigning and how it changes over time we need a model or a story.

By design we attend to what has our attention now and need to lay out the progression of events in a narrative for anything that develops over time.  I imagine that several individuals had entertained the vision for television.  Yes, it started with imagination and someone may have gained credit because they were the first to write about it in a science paper, the first to build a working model, the first to design a prototype for manufacturing, and even the first to place it in production.  Inventors and designers may hold patents.  Manufacturers put their name on the product.  If a retail store buys some inventory they own the merchandise.  If you go to the store and buy a new TV you will own the device.  When it wears out (all objects have entropy) the county landfill will gain ownership.

Creation or imagination is always the first step but a close second is the power to make assignments.  Giant step here, when you exercise that power of assignment you limit the target and start the clock of decay.  This is the human checks and balance system.  Imagination gives you the range, everything that you can be aware of now, to sort through and make a decision.  If too much data for only one range it will push you to threshold—deer in the head-light experience.  The human default is to make up a story and reduce the event to a “tall tale” to share and inspire reactions from others.  The objectified story about a large or complex image is a report; past, done and  fades your chance to create now.  You can assign that event as done without any action and use the story to justify.  If you create a model, same image but scaled down and internalized, you still hold all the wholeness of the data and you may make a quick decision and act.  Both are in fact assignments but the model allows for creation now, a decision and done, whereas the secured story places the event into an opportunity missed.  Illusions and timing are very important.  Remember, life is movement and balance.  A quick intuitive hit is a reaction to familiar and not a decision.  Attend longer to an event and allow for more detail to generate a model and then decide.  Remember, you only need to develop a model when the range of what you are aware of in an event is too large for one image.  The secret is that a representation for something large or complex (external) is secured internal at a location and kinesthetic.  Dreams are models of possible chaotic events and internal.

Wellness Code Webinar Invitation

April 24th, 2018

The aim for “Surviving the Cultural Changes” webinar was to make you aware that a storm is coming and wise to secure structure.  Examine your range of safe options and move to weather the storm.  Unfortunately the storm has landed; as you can tell from the news.  Loss of middle income jobs, global warming, out-of-control violence reactions to this change, and general denial instead of a plan.  The way we humans determine value will change and on all levels.  What I refer to as spiritual work is setting aside time in meditation (reflection) to discover options in personal potential and set-up (action plan) life to explore these options in real demonstration.  I recommend you become that new person that embraces the change and not someone lost in reaction or not prepared.  Over the last year I have shared with you some tools and concepts to aid with set-up for discovery of that new you.  Please e-mail me if you need assistance implementing.

The path to meaning is changing and without meaning we humans don’t tend to survive—the devastation appears as the very nature of relationships crumble.  We see that all the time with folks at threshold from losing their jobs, getting divorced, failing to hold emotional balance or just lost in reaction (nature of addictions).  What I have observed from years of counseling is that most people get ill when they are forced past their imposed threshold.  The old way is the safe way, even if it doesn’t work, and a different way appears threatening.  Research reveals that most people that do survive abandon those old values, rules, ideas and build new external structure (how to) and internal mapping (why).  We discovered in our Modern Meme that just change alone is not sufficient.  The folks that recover from these types of crisis offer their story and time in service to caution others.  Meaning is in relationships with others and ourselves.  A healthy person has a healthy relationship between who they believe they are, how they act in demonstration, and their set-up for people to relate back to them.

I teach and believe that you don’t need to become a victim to embrace change.  I developed a program to support a change to a healthier life—style and have been facilitating it and monitoring the results.  We don’t need to become sick to seek wellness.  Over the next twelve months I will facilitate a one hour a month training webinar on this topic and a week after you receive each monthly link for viewing we will have an evening open online chat secession for questions.  Of course, you don’t have to join in the chats to get the links and I will continue to personally answer an emailed question about training content and how you are processing it.  The cost is only $100 for the entire “Wellness Code” webinar which you can post on PayPal (link on side bar of my website) or send me a check.  The follow-up chats will be at 6:00 PM PST and the proposed schedule for this year: May 15, June 12, July 17, Aug. 14, Sept. 4, Oct. 16, Nov. 13, Dec. 11.  Reminder notices will be sent each month with the training links.

Mom’s Chicken Soup

March 29th, 2018

Do you remember when doctors bled patients?  They still like to remove any “corrupted” components and that in itself is not a bad idea.  Healing is still just magic.  Science and doctors today are attempting to set patients up for healing to happen (until the patient runs out of funding).  Explaining to patients in more common terms about the details and choices to repair damage and direct folks back on a track toward healing is an improvement.  Progress and the renewing of a relationship that got lost for a few years in “newer, wiser, faster, and more expensive procedures.”

I think that is why I like neuroscience.  Everyone learning something new takes the edge away from the expert.  The desired outcome, of course, is to prove that consciousness and everything else yet undefined is somewhere in that gray matter.  Are we relying on univariate correlations in data to find causation?  Univariate correlations are drawn when you make a conclusion based on only one variable.  Are we forcing all of our scientists into becoming philosophers?

What we make up, imagine, is the structure of magic.  We may inspire, support and direct imagination with better internal maps to generate mental models closer to and more in alignment with real events—but it is still an internal model of what is perceived.  Magic, “will” and even healing are subjective topics; not objective “things” for science to dissect and lay out in divination for insurance payment.  I’m not anti-medicine, anti-medical nor anti-information;  I’m just at threshold in how to pay for health care and how to get back to finding the “art of healing.”

Do you remember Mom’s chicken soup; or at least the story of it?  The tonic to cure all illness at best and the feeling of starting to recover at least.  The soup had some effect, of course, but the power was in Mom’s attention to your impaired state of being.  That attention to the possibility that you will feel better is the magic of the healing art.  Mom’s assertion, can you imagine being well, do you remember waking up feeling good every morning and are you in the habit of being an active healthy person?  Today Mom would be in big trouble for not warning you that there is not scientific evidence that soup may cure a cold or anything else and that there may be a big risk to your health in consuming the large amount of salt that is in that soup.  Not revealing all this to you I’m sure is a violation to HIPPA Law.  “Eat your soup and you will feel better” is now a crime.

I have a vision for six once-a-month one hour webinars to start in July.  The intention is to initiate a conversation about the possibility of some form of alternate healing therapy that would be appropriate for the growing post-modern population.  Any concepts with a history or a polarity (right-wrong) is out along with the mere fact that the therapy works.  The first is too Traditional meme and the second scores in the overachieving Modern meme.  Please e-mail me your thoughts.  Can we imagine something new—time for soup.

Post-modern inspiration

February 28th, 2018

Have you heard folks say that kids today seem to be born with a computer “instinct”?  Yes, proud parents of every generation relate how unbelievably smart their children are.  Testing doesn’t support claims for being more academically or IQ level advanced and “smarter” feels more like they just get life demands today a little easier.  That all goes south in the early teens when those once smart children are now out or in searching for meaning and value.  True magic when we can hope (will) that our children get the essentials of life quicker than we did and “poof” they do—when young.  Today, thirteen plus years later even the enlightened model you wished for them is now outdated and the transformation model to becoming a young adult is antiquated.

In the traditional human paradigm, elders who over time mastered the traditional model became mentors for the young adults to guide in searching out meaning and value for them to create a life separate from family but still of the culture.  We can still read books (perhaps now fiction) about the old traditional magic and wisdom of alchemists and wizards.  This old magic still produces profound results for neophytes in any space void of present-time complexity.  It all worked great until it didn’t—welcome to the modern paradigm.  The new rule is “better, faster, more efficient, and complex.”  The old traditional ways became “stupid, useless or just outdated.”  As Telhard de Chardin stated in his law of complexity; “Increasing complexity of form is correlated with increasing interior consciousness.”  That means we needed to make the external structure (all those symbols outside of you) complex to spawn attention internal to develop internal consciousness (levels, gradients, scales, discernments that are authentic for a developing self).  This will all work itself out in a few hundred years and I can’t begin to imagine what the content of  a conversation would be in 2200.  If I can’t imagine it I therefore have no statement of will to effect, less yet create that outcome.

Magic was never about knowing; it only requires imagination and will.  Imagination is a range and, like all ranges, supported, developed and expanded by discovery and attention.  Read a book by a post-modern author, volunteer some time with a youth group, have endless conversations with friends about new ideas and values today, and most important, be present in each of these processes.  Building range I believe is the first step to discover what sits just outside the edge of your present-time human range.  We humans are great magicians and what we all need is inspiration to imagine.  I think the greatest need for a better imagined outcome for humans today is in wellness.  My last year’s webinar was about building range and securing it.  This year I will do another webinar on wellness and how to secure that state of being.  Watch for the inspiration this May.

Magic Child

January 24th, 2018

From my experience I believe most children have a “will” to speak.  It is evident from the fact that a few children choose not to speak—at least not on a “normal” schedule.  Learning on average for a child during developing years is a new word every 90 minutes.  That type and length of a power learning curve is sheer magic.  If you are a parent or work with children, research has found that reading to children is more effective than phonetics, TV shows or silly YouTube videos.  Learning to read early will increase a child’s rate of new word mastery and including  young children in family discussions aids in their emotional growth.

To discover the magic and usefulness for the pool of data children are born with but seem to lose the unnecessary portions by around age six took a few years for me to realize but I was directed by a clue from a fiction novel.  This extra data is similar to a “universal” part where you only use attachments needed for specific applications.  I always feel a little wasteful tossing those extra pieces away.  At best I think you need to be content with recycling those extra parts but the extra data children are endowed with may have a very practical use.  In the book Practical Demon Keeping by Christopher Moore a young man is bonded to a demon that feeds on humans.  Learning the meaning and power of choice in “no” was essential to their forced relationship and being “done” seemed the only hope for this young man.  I think we are all strapped to a demon and securing no and done is an element we humans all share.  In the story, as the hero completed steps to secure done he started to generate relationships with a mixed bag of individuals that in no way appeared predestined for him to meet or even have associations that were beneficial.  These connections materialized from this extra internal data to blend with any type of group or persons and not from the character’s life experience disclosed or his existing developed structure.  As a facilitator for years I recommended this book but never told my students why.  I was hopeful that what I discovered from the story would be seeded into their unconscious to assist them when they were ready to look at securing “we” in their lives.  “No” and “done” secure balance between movement and nutrition but “we” secures potential.

The magic update that each child appears to obtain upon birth we will discuss next month but I believe we have space to take a quick look at the consequences when as children we become aware that we are not the universe.  The “truth” was incorrect; lots of stuff and other folks here.  We spend our life virtually in a trial and error struggle to discover the nature of a “truth” that defines the state we were born into.  But the state of creation is a state of imagination and can’t ever be an absolute—a state that disallows change by definition.  We might preference some patterns (or a lot of patterns-survival) as story indexes but the daily changing stories we tell ourselves and others is the very nature of creation.  Every moment we create life, the belief in that moment evokes the energy to generate a demonstration.  And as long as we don’t  take any of this process seriously, the next moment, the next imagined story, the next new belief, the refreshed demonstration, is a creation.  We have a game and it is magic.

Real Magic

December 16th, 2017

I have continued to note the magic in human life for the last 50 plus years to date but I doubt if I could provide a clear timeline for the realizations.  Some paths of discovery take years to unfold and others circle or merge into new trails of revelation.  Science has been the greatest resource.  It appears that we humans make up a lot of stories, we believe it all to be true, we don’t like being wrong and we see patterns even where there are none.  And I guess, real or not, it all has an effect on us but science is looking for what is real.  I’m good with all of this but I thought we made it all up.  Over the next few blogs I will muse over the simple human magic, real or not, that affects us all.

Today, science believes that a child is not born a “blank slate” to learn about life but comes well equipped with a battery of data.  This data is more like a guidebook than an encyclopedia.  It aids in facilitating the segment or section of human life that we integrate into (family, culture, location).  After a few years most of it is dumped or uploaded onto some cloud site that Google doesn’t own yet.  Now that is some pretty cool magic.  Perhaps, in a universe with no time, there are no past lives but every human is born with a current update.  And a newborn’s perception is that they are all of existence.  Not one with the universe, not connected to all but they are all of it.  What a relief when you discover that you are not everything and also a huge break in property taxes.  I dig this new science/magic but I’m still confused about what is real.

Remember, by magic I mean producing an effect in life by your attention to your statement of will, a consideration for your presence now.  I’m not referring to the “magic stage” of development that the human race instigated hundreds of thousands of years ago.  As a result all children go through the “magic” stage of development starting around 18 months.  This is when they start to make the distinction between self and other on an emotional and feeling level.  While learning to differentiate between self and the exterior environment they encounter a superstitious, fantasy, magical mode of thinking that lasts for a few years.  Careful, don’t allow all the research and predictability to mute the magic.  The fact that a child is born thinking and feeling as if they were the entire universe and over time develop along a schema to believe they are limited in life as an internal package located in a sea of stuff does not negate the mystery.  Science has no idea how or why this happens but they have a story and labels.  Yes, we all make up our best bet stories for what we don’t know, we believe them and defend them, name all the stuff external and stay perpetually confused how we feel internally about all the above.  Now that is a truth and a real magic trick (maybe-go easy on the certainty).

Parts needed for magic

November 19th, 2017

In my late twenties, a review of my concept of magic would have been that I could generate change in conformity with my will if the structure was in place to support it or if I could discover the correct structure via trial and error.  The statement of will would need to be formatted as a request and supported internally with an iconic consideration of value.  At this point of my life I began to entertain the idea that everything (atoms-the base of all objects) is unstable and in fact “blink” and thus a change would be only a different creation and not an adaptation.  A creation is a request to be with a vector suggesting potential (stages, steps or levels as creations) which would produce the internal concept of value.  For example, a change or new version of me “feels” appropriate (of value) now; or, I need to do things that make me happy, etc.

New also to my life at this time was a growing number of requests from other folks to teach them “magic,” help them with it, or do it for them.  The third being the most prevalent and, of course, absurd.  With my education and background I started teaching and learned a few “tricks” from helping some folks along the way.  For most students, what they thought of as their will was in fact someone else’s demand for them, a failed expectation with no statement of will, a belief which is a form of trance and/or an assortment of other “shadow” experiences.  Everything was a demand, though at times polite, and rarely indicated any reflection of value.  I started teaching students to discover “their will,” anchor into it via the body and become present while learning to discern from where distractions sourced.  The long journey of learning to secure “no” and “done” began; converting all demands to requests.

I didn’t teach from my knowledge of anything but I did create some structure or guidelines.  The training material was revealed from the students as I pried open the doors of their experience.  The content was framed by structure as I learned life potential was and the context emanated as students generated opportunities for learning.  Sweet, simple and profound.

Most folks see life as a task and they wish to know what to do to enact their will.  Difficult to hear that life is about being and not doing—the will to be.  And most folks don’t understand what being present and conscious is.  We have all experienced chatting with a friend while driving and missing an off-ramp—a shadow of you was driving and not present or conscious for the exit.  Perhaps less dangerous than crossing the street while day-dreaming, climbing a ladder or proposing marriage while “in love” with a stranger.  Don’t be blindsided by the concept of human potential.  It would need to include all the opportunities for failure as well as success.  All are options and the selection is performed as a person “sets-up” for their next “blink” into consciousness.  It happens like magic.

Magic Growing Up

October 5th, 2017

Aleister Crowley  said “Magick is the science and art of causing change to occur in conformity with will” (Magick in Theory and Practice).  You might think that a young boy who understood that concept and produced several demonstrations pre-nine would be obsessed with a long list of “I wants” but that was not my state.  I was fascinated that such potential was difficult to keep conscious and the results never felt real in the body.  Jean Piaget , I discovered later, would say I had not developed the structure yet to understand the experience.  Sure enough, six years later I was lost in a very dark woods and I requested, out loud, with no real ears to hear, help seeing in this total darkness.  A glow came and lit the path through the overgrown woods to safety.  I know, this is all crazy stuff but I got a clue to my magic.

Perhaps two clues  but it took some years to sort them out.  This reported event was a “request”, a genuine need and not an experiment.  The universe is made of stuff and space with some type of force in the space.  The stuff is defined and has location; the nature of stuff is limitation.  Imagination would thrive in the space and there is force to drive or create.  I didn’t request a flashlight, map or even a guide.  It was a request to imagine seeing in the dark.  Dark would be the imagined absence of light; right.  A normal human need is a demand (i.e., “I can’t see”)—communication about stuff from stuff—a personal defined me or my issue.  If you “will” a change you need to talk to the purveyor of change.  The value of stuff and most things defined is that they are redundant and predictable; resistant to change by design.  A demand is a statement not willing to except a no, the world of redundant stuff and rejection to change.  Imagination requires the full spectrum of possible, and better yet, a secure “no” provides steps or gradients in imagination without an absolute no or not possible.  Potential and absolute are an oxymoron.

Second clue was that the request was from some felt point internal to a potential external.  It was not a request for survival for that is not even a range, and give me a break, secured on one end with an absolute; death.  This was from a genuine internal feeling that a potential existed but it was not within my limited range, which of course is why it would be external.  Uncertain, unknown but possible with a tiny bit of trust which is what potential really is.  Again, this second clue required that I mature in structure.  To understand the value of life you need to clean your room, put your toys away and do your chores.  Growing up is essential to perceive potential.  Your years of discipline work has paid off.
