Culmination of the
To Be in the World But Not
From "Do-ing" to
To see God in All Things
On Dec.22, in our men's
group, the following experience arose.
- Lying down, sole to sole touching.
Deep releasing occurring.
No-thought spaciousness arising.
Or, is it soul to soul?
That is, our inner essence sharing?
- Boundaries disappearing.
Background purple field of Beingness, in mind's eye
to forefront expanding.
Then a circle of hands forming, the symbol
of wholeness, a pointer to Oneness.1
The separate "I" dissolving,
as in death, in the Void,
the energies merging2
Silence reigning, Presence felt.
- Perceptions transformed.
I meet myself in the form of others3
Yet even the "I" is no longer.
There's just Absolute Being.
The end of the illusion of separation.
Just Unconditional Love.
- Ending: hands releasing, feet apart.
Separateness apparently happens.
All that remains is the One Constant Lover4
The end of seeking appears.
- See This Is It: The Nature
of Oneness, by Jan Kersschot.
- Some years ago I read some
teachings by Drunvalo Melchizedek and couldn't accept them. After this
experience I find it easier to understand such teachings. From The
Ancient Secret of The Flower of Life, Vol. 1: "32 members from
Sirius B--16 males and 16 females who were married into a single
family--understanding that all things are light, lay down, alternating
male and female, facing upward with their heads toward the center of a
circle with a white-blue flame (the flower of life) conceived, or merged
into the flame or ovum of the Nefilim in order to create a new race on
Earth (humans). Comes from pages 86-87.

To Be in
the World But Not Of It
- Traditionally: seek spiritual, not
- Mystically: See the world for the
illusion it is.
View the world as a dream, a divine play,
of Oneness (aka. Consciousness).
Seek the divine essence in everything
(even so-called evil).
That is, experience the underlying Field of
Energy--the Ground--that holds ALL things
together in physical manifestation.
- Not heaven AFTER death
But live heaven, here and now, on Earth1
The Eternal is now.
- Be an ambassador of the concept of
But, more importantly, demonstrate THAT in your
illusory personhood activities.
As the ego decreases, the Presence of Oneness increases.
- Such is Oneness2
"Love entails clarity of perception, objectivity;
there is nothing so clear-sighted as love."
- Plato: the unexamined
(unaware) life is not worth living. Ken: the unlived life is also
worthless, or so it seems.
- See Jesus and the Lost
Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians, by Timothy Freke
and Peter Gandy, especially chps 4,7 and 8. Also, see poem titled:

NOTE: After reading In The Dark Places of
Wisdom, by Peter Kingsley, a few words arose.
From "Do-ing" to "Be-ing"
- After reading/studying/absorbing books
from "Culmination of the New Age Movement?"1
Now, less reactive, more peaceful, less judgmental.
More trusting in "voices/intuition,"
more synchronicity, more unicity2
More awareness, less disappointed,
less frustration, tension.
- Fewer expectations, more self-healing.
Yet, still reading/studying/experiencing
even though everything needed is inside.
But what price to pay?
Willingness to be transformed: to live
my ordeals, sufferings, transformations
Without identifying with them
Slowly seeing Paradise on earth.
- The Point of Infinity is a school of
A secret Pythagorean mystical space.4
No more temporary substitutes,
no more hollowness inside!
Learn how to die before you die!5
- What is the longing in your heart?
There's nowhere to go to find fulfillment.
Face, we must, the ultimate terror/fear.
Which hell melts into the place of UTTER STILLNESS.

understand the revisionistic past,

Back to top
- Practicing Deathwork(1)
Ideas, visions, creativity arising.
Conflict: to get up and DO!
But, stay with "TO BE"
Experiencing just "being," detaching from "doing"
- Will I jump out of my skin?
Need to release sounds--can't stand the energy,
the gratitude, the "grace!"
For me,"to be" is much harder than "to do."
- Yet, it's delicious to travel the road
while still alive!
- Deathwork is my personal self-healing
practice which I found confirmed in Peter Kingsley's
book, In The Dark Places of Wisdom. Three cheers for
Pythagoras and Parmenides!
Click here for a description
of the practice: basically lying down motionless, imperceptibly
breathing for hours. This work is similiar to my Zen of Deep Relaxation

NOTE: While reading
Radical Awakening: Cutting Through the Conditioned Mind: Dialogues with
Stephen Jourdain, ed. by Gilles Farcet, some inspiration presented itself
as a summary of Stephen's experience.
To See God in All Things
- What, pray-tell does this mean?
Many possibilities--here's another.
No prior ashram, school, or teaching
structure Stephen had--but at 16
"the Rupture" happened.
- A miracle: two completely different
things can be
truly joined (fusion-like), while each, at the same
time, its original nature maintains.
Not the abolition of duality, but rather
the sudden appearance of a unity in the
heart of duality.
- Duality can be healthy (simple,
legitimate, real, divine)
Or, may be unhealthy (falsified, corrupt, unreal)
Before enlightenment, unhealthy duality.
After enlightenment, healthy duality.
Two sources of duality are established:
-legitimate, non-personal (no-ego), an impersonal creation
-polluted at birth (falsifies everything at once),
the counterfeit interior/exterior arises.
- If illusion appears, don't suppress the
better to confront yourself in your illusion.
Thus, touch the essence of the essence of all things.
Awake to an INFINITE VALUE in your innermost center.
From your spiritual essence DISCERNMENT,
disidentification brings about.
And only INFINITE VALUE exists,
unjustifiably, mysteriously and gratuitously.
- The unhealthy from the healthy duality
My psychological being annihilated is reborn
into healthy duality.
The falsified Other dies in the hallucination,
while the Other from the legitimate source resurges.
Nothing changed, everything changed.
Body/spirit lost, yet reincorporated again.
- With enlightenment, see through the
After enlightenment, still in the hallucination yet
see self as a puppet.
The only real event in human existence is this,
an absolute non-event.
Thus, there is a God as being and a God as nothingness.
Only through the son, through one's humanity,
does one attain God.
Something absolutely sacred is recognized in all of life,
as one is REINTRODUCED/REINCORPORATED to
see The Divine in all things.
- So, compassion? Work for a better
But, ultimately, question the dream itself.
Thus, radical awakening perceives the hallucinatory
nature/fundamental unreality of this world.
"It's when awakening ITSELF is no longer perceived
as an objective substratum that I am free.
In reality, I am alone on the journey."
- In sum, "before awakening, I was my
identity, that of an
inner subject who thought this or that,
after awakening, I was without identity and the
The more I am me, the more I am everyone else.
And INFINITE VALUE (God) is seen in ALL things.
- What a delicious book!
A book worth chewing on!
Yet, the "Practical Work"1 suggested
To mine eye seems daunting.
- See pages 167-171, and
181-183,"The Fundamental Delusion."

NOTE: At the Point of
Infinity the other day, Ralph asked me: "Are you enlightened?" I stuttered
and grew silent. "Wow, I've never seen you without words," said Ralph. My
belated response follows.
- In this perfect world of imperfection,
I am Love and Strife Itself1
My nature is to expand/question Itself,
to share Itself with All
in whom I come into contact.
- As, Socrates, my adopted middle name,
I only ask questions,
And more questions.
So that, ultimately, we "wake up"
and discover our own divinity.
For we are immortal, gods!
Thus, I2 assist3 in freeing4 you from
I ache for us to become conscious,
As does everything we can perceive.
- In short, I am a bald-headed,
prophet, for some who are ready.
Not to offer more factual information
but to help us save our souls.5
Am I not just human
pointing to what lies beyond the human?
As human and god, I am a paradox.
So, too, are you.
What a glorious joke!
Only laughter seems appropriate.
- Remember: thought cannot lead us beyond
One can't find reality through argument and reason.
- Once beyond thought, through incubation,6
See this perceived world as illusion.
Yet function in it AS IF it's real.
Seemingly bound yet inwardly free.
Play a "human" performance
Yet follow rules of this illusory
ocean of existence.
Finally, there is nothing left to learn7
- Such is undeception.
See through falsified duality--
remembering legitimate duality.8
That is, experience the One in the multitude,
The same ESSENCE in its infinite forms.
Thus, "everything visible has become transparent,
a pointer to the invisible.
So, "our sense perceptions command us to perceive--
and see the invisible in the visible,
to stay present, to be awake."
So that the seed (source) planted within can bloom.
- Nothing is as it seems
The myth of human existence is exploded!
Everything is inside us.
- See Empedocles's sacred poem
and its interpretation in Reality, by Peter Kingsley, pp. 318 on.
- And who is this "I"?
- I can only help in preparing
the ground for any real esoteric teaching, leading to direct personal
experience. Additionally, not Love, but Strife, leads the way back
home--therefore I assist in providing Stife, by asking endless questions
and feeding back your body/mind responses helping to answer the "call of
the soul." Most people are in love with Love; I am in love with Strife.
- It is through the knowledge
only found at the other side of life as we know it that we can be FREE
from the magical, illusory grip of this world of senses. See:
www.NewAgePointofInfinity.com and click onto The Mystical Fellowship; and, also read Reality, by Peter Kingsley.
- "What does it profit a man if
he gains the whole world, but loses his soul? And, the physical
substance of the immortal soul is, of course, "aithęr," one of the four
elements, the element of our immortality and pure divinity.
- See website in #4 above.
- "And there is nothing left to
learn not because you know everything but, on the contrary, because you
can at last afford to relax and know nothing -- in the quiet knowledge
that whatever needs to be known will make itself known to you at the
appropriate moment. There is nothing left to learn, nothing else to go
after anymore, because the mind goes quite silent and still in the awe
of realizing it will never be able to understand even the tiniest
fraction of what has just been given," page 531 of Reality.

Things," in website above, click onto Spiritual Poetry.
