THE NEW RECEPTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS
I hope you have worked some with the tapping of the thymus as an entry into heart consciousness and heart intelligence as an ongoing process. When consciousness-as-process rather than consciousness as an ongoing series of contents begins to be felt, receptivity awakens.
Heart awareness and intelligence, which is always embodied, as tapping the thymus shows, is also an entry into the inherent nature of heart as being relational, and the primary relation of heart awareness-intelligence, is that, through being embodied, an immediate connection with Earth occurs characterizing heart-awareness.
When we feel a kind of inner desire of an unknown sort at the place of the heart that has been tapped, another heart quality can also be noticed – the immediate sense of being within joy-sorrow. Noticing this quality of joy-sorrow brings about a tendency to refrain from wanting heart-experience just for the emotion of it. The sorrow within heart awareness is the presence of the grounding of Earth. It is not sorrow in our usual way of understanding sorrow. It is something like being just slightly pulled away from the heart (joy) while being within heart-awareness.
The receptivity of consciousness being described here is thus also suffering. The word “suffer” does not mean painful; the word itself means “to allow”. One aspect of the felt sense of inner sorrow accompanying heart-joy means allowing the comfortable sense of content consciousness as being in control to diminish. That is, usual content-consciousness is also our means of retaining a sense of control.
Now, in this time of pandemic, political chaos, a changing economy that can no longer retain the sense of being the main mode of materialistic control, the radical change in sensation brought about by masks making breathing more difficult, installing ongoing anxiety, separation from others that we can no longer see, only look at, not being able to affirm our embodiment by touch, demonstrations and violence, the separation between people, beginning to experience almost complete disembodiment through electronics and particularly 5G --- all install ongoing anxiety. It may be a little difficult to concentrate attention within the heart. At the same time, these impediments can also encourage more concentration within the heart and much more awareness of its importance as utterly crucial during this time. Fears have to be countered – we can’t just decide not to be in fear. It is the heart-awareness that takes us out of fear because it takes us into the cosmology of Love.
The sense-awareness of sorrow within the heart, being called to relinquish being in control of the contents of consciousness, pulls us deeper into embodiment and into Earth.
In this time, though, being heart present with its attendant sorrow, yielding again to being Earth-beings, begins to be felt as grieving. This is not our grieving; it is Earth’s grieving. The first act of the new receptive consciousness is to allow the embodied feeling of grief. We don’t want to begin to enumerate the reasons there may be grief in our lives – this is Earth’s grieving, which is very necessary to feel. Here’s how:
Enter into heart-awareness, tap the thymus, and be very present to the qualities of the bodily sensation that occurs. Then, take a walk outside – preferably at a place of direct presence of the feet and the earth – a park is fine, and maybe on the way back, see what happens while walking on cement.
While you are walking, place your attention at the soles of the feet. It is as if you are experiencing Earth from the bottom of the feet. Grief will intensify, almost unbearably so. It softens, a lot, quickly, when the walk is completed. What does remain is bodily, inwardly, heart-fully, now knowing with immediacy what is meant by entering receptive consciousness.
Consciousness-as-process does not entirely replace content-consciousness as an ongoing series of "the already formed". The abstract aspect does go away. We do begin to notice the immediacy of full presence. What now continues is an entwining of content consciousness inclining toward heart intelligence and heart intelligence receiving a kind of warm solidity so that heart awareness does not mean “mush”. This is stepping into the cosmology of Love.
These posts intend to be this kind of intertwining. Commenting can become a kind of practice for you – inwardly finding the way between commenting with ideas vs commenting with sweetness. Aliveness occurs between these opposites. (Also, posting a video comment showing something of the beauty of nature is a perversion of heart-earth awareness, as it is not experiencing the kind of awareness described; it is a digital double of it.)
Try to take this walk every day this week. Notice what occurs.
THE WAY IN AS THE WAY OUT
The germ theory of disease is itself diseased; “iatrogenic” is the word the great historian Ivan Illich called it many years ago when speaking of the overmedicalizing of life, which itself becomes the illness. We are now living that in spades.
Another view of disease emerging now, says that it is more important to look at the terrain of the disease. The analogy encompassing these two views is that of dying fish in dirty water. The germ theory of disease treats the fish, while the terrain view cleans the water.
In terms of the Coronavirus, rather than looking to control the virus, the terrain view says that we are starving from the kind of food we eat, and not just the literal food we eat; we are starving for true nourishment. And we are being poisoned, not just by the fact that almost all food is now contaminated with glysophate, that is, Roundup, but by being rounded-up into a conception of the world as a gulag.
The Coronavirus inserts the necessary intimate presence of death at the very heart of consciousness. It is not that we know, or we fear that we will die – that is old content consciousness. The new terrain consciousness is soul -consciousness, soul's inherent concern with death.
The purpose of “death-consciousness” (very different than the consciousness of death) is certainly not to become obsessed with death. To know that death is always with us, which is now being impressed into consciousness itself, has the purpose of awakening us to the wholeness of consciousness as being inherently open to and with the spiritual dimension – that is soul-consciousness. It has nothing, really, to do with “trying to be more spiritual.” It has to do with awakening to the fact that to be fully human is to inherently feel being spiritual-earthly beings.
The overwhelming prevalence, about to go down the toilet, of money-consciousness, obscures the fullness of consciousness itself as inherently “giving-receiving-giving”. This constant pulsation is the constant rhythm of living-dying-living, which is also the rhythm of the heart.
Money-consciousness makes the fullness of consciousness-as-terrain into over-concern with content-consciousness, and not noticing the terrain is polluted. Receiving what we truly need has now turned into the “diseased fish”, the effort to 'save' the economy of greed.
Diseased money – greed – which now characterizes the huge rich-poor polarity, has as its false purpose not having more things,but rather becoming totally forgetful of the constant presence of death. Death-awareness wipes away all literalness of consciousness, for example, the literalized consciousness that happiness comes from things and comfort.
The original soul significance of money as bringing us into relational consciousness has deviated into the fantasy of having life without death, or, turning death into that utterly surprising ending, a very strange view of death as the force of grinding down life to death – which is not its purpose. Death’s purpose is the awakening of consciousness.
These quite phenomenological observations – that is, just seeing what is happening without any intervention of a theory – suggest that we can undergo this current world-initiation into fuller consciousness – either the hard way or the heart way.
The hard way is that of trying to live in dirty water while inoculating all the illnesses -- physical, social, moral, economic, individual.
The heart way opens with feeling our helplessness – the way out of the over-medicalizing of life that is turning into the economy of surveillance – health control rather than health care.
Realizing helplessness opens into the new form of receptive-consciousness, replacing aggressive consciousness. As receptivity awakens, the center of consciousness moves from the brain to the heart, a move from mental knowing to heart-intelligence. Heart-intelligence is also soul awareness.
Soul awareness as it evolves in the way described here enters fully when we become inwardly aware that there Is not one crime in the world to which we are all not subconsciously prone. Within receptive, heart-intelligence, there exists an inherent grieving that grounds us – we are capable of every atrocity that we see happening. There is no moral superiority at the level of soul-awareness.
The grounding of grieving awakens Life-consciousness, that is, we are not fully alive with the partialness of content consciousness. It is time to change the dirty water.
Let’s start the revolution from being human to becoming conscious human beings – homo sapiens (sapiens means WISDOM!)
A Simple Way to Start
Several times a day, take the second two fingers of the right hand (left two if you are left-handed) and begin tapping your breast, right at the center, the heart-felt place of the body. Do this a number of times each day, inwardly noticing that when you do so, an inner sensation of a flow of desire, bodily felt right at that place occurs – this place is the place of the thymus, the inner dwelling place of Sophia, Wisdom. The desire is the desire of Sophia, of Wisdom stirring.
The word “thymus” comes from the Greek word “thumos” which means "anger, heart, soul, desire, life.” When the presence of Sophia is felt, Psyche who in the story of Eros and Psyche begins as a butterfly is felt. When you tap the thymus you feel the stirring of something like a butterfly.
A particularly interesting aspect of the word “thymus” is “anger”, which here means a strong impetus toward LIFE, bodily experienced at the place where no lie can enter.

CAN A VIRUS GET A VIRUS?
The last post revealed how every time electronic advances occurred, increases in EMF, there was a flu pandemic. Such advances increasingly move us away from Nature while also resulting in the use of Nature to satisfy the desire for comfort.
Viruses may be Nature's way of telling us that the dominance of materialistic ways of thinking, imagining, perceiving, sensing and willing have gone too far. A humanocentric view of Earth now rules.
We are unable to experience ourselves as aspects of the wholeness of the Earth embraced by and within the Divine Worlds, and instead believe we are controllers of Earth.
A certain prominent individual recently contracted the coronavirus, was hospitalized for a few days, treated with every possible variation of existing and also untested treatments, apparently rapidly improved, and was able to return to his home and work. This particular individual who has remarkable power and influence in this country as well as in the whole world is characterized by his capacity to bring about separations and rancor between people. His behavior is not unlike that of the virus in its ability to bring about separations between people. And, while it might be argued that his ways are presently in service of getting things back to “normal”, by normal he means rank materialism.
He also does not let anything stand in the way of his heated desires. He is infamous for confused thinking and for lying, while at the same time seen by some as an effective leader. He is also known for his self-centeredness and his fiery and derogatory ways of treating others, particularly women.
The astounding aspect of his extremely fast recovery from the virus is that encountering something so deadly has apparently not affected any of the qualities mentioned above. It is as if this encounter with death, which is about the only way narcissism can radically change, has not in fact changed this person at all, and in fact his ways seem to have only exponentially
In a previous post, I quoted the spiritual thinker and practitioner, Are Thoreson, as saying that his complete surrender when he contracted the coronavirus resulted in his awakening to a whole new level of spiritual awareness. By surrender, I do not mean either giving up, capitulating or giving in to it --- I mean opening oneself completely, without reservation, to the presence of the spiritual worlds -- not as a hope of being cured, but because of facing death. The person above did say his rapid recovery came from God, but, as yet, no transformation of his usual expected behavior has occurred.
We thus have a most interesting contrast in responses to the virus to consider.
Recently, I found another spiritual researcher commenting on this particular dimension having to do with the polarity between control and surrender. Her name is Judith Von Halle. In her book titled “The Coronavirus Pandemic: Anthroposophical Perspectives,” she says:
“Virus epidemics affect the karma of humanity insofar as the individual spirit is not brought to bear within an individual human being, and as a result, what is meant to be the age of spiritual awakening, the person instead relapses into group – soul attitudes,(that is, separateness and fostering of further and more difficult separations between people – my comment) which increase the physical potency of the viruses” (pg. 47).
She also points out that the particular difficulty of a vaccine against coronavirus is that it will not get rid of the virus but rather exacerbate its tendency toward mutation. That is, with this virus, a vaccine, while perhaps seeming to be effective, will instead introduce a wholly new way of living –one accompanied by “fighting” one lethal virus after another, each one more lethal to the spirit of the human being than the other.
Thinking that — well, one day, due to science and vaccines, everything will be fine again, cannot work without changing 150 years of materialism, now gone viral.
Back to the individual mentioned at the start. His public statements since returning home emphasize that “this virus can be defeated. Don’t let it rule you.” Apparently, he was able to confront the virus without falling into fear, for fear certainly increases disposition for the illness. It is more accurate to say, though, that power has taken the place of fear for this individual. Had he experienced deep fear, there would have been the possibility of replacing the fear with inner development, particularly the capacity of spiritual love.
We see, with this person, the possibility of the future human being — one who meets every possibility of succumbing to a threat without an awakening of the true power of surrender — that of coming into spiritual awareness. This would be like humans becoming viruses.
Yes, a virus can infect a virus.
Please know this writing is not in any way political. Future posts may well focus on how the virus may be trying to orient us to developing a living inner life occurs within other world events at this time.
Inner Peace or Inner Clutter
The last post gave an indication of the spiritual origins of the pandemic virus – that it has something to do with something that was not done! The inspiration that lives through Greta Thunberg to awaken the masses to the severe importance of addressing how we humans are destroying the Natural World was not listened to; indeed, she was ridiculed by those in power to do something to stop killing Nature – for, example, by our president, but also, for example, by the United Nations representatives and other leaders who simply ignored her. The spirit-beings inspiring Greta are then forced to awaken us – in what I termed “the hard way”.
Before we can begin to say what, if anything, can spiritually be done now, there is at least one, maybe more, rabbit holes that we cannot bypass.
So, there is the way of standard medicine to ‘deal’ with the pandemic – and it is filled with a lot of not very helpful spiritual presences too – like the beings who inspire scientism rather than true science; like the beings who bring about a collusion between scientism-medicine and the high-greed beings inspiring the pharmaceutical industry – who are salivating over the prospect of people having to be vaccinated at least twice a year and who, in truth, are also salivating about the the prospect of many new kinds of viral infections of the covid sort; like those beings who are inspiring the development of removing humans from the living earth altogether through electronic technologies – resulting in technocracy and the control it puts into the hands of the technocrats.
The balance, the karma, that was being announced by the spiritual beings inspiring Greta Thunberg – the ages of accumulated karma of relishing living in the prison of greed could have begun to be balanced by caring now for Nature, but it did not happen. Thus, the neglected being had to find another way to enact this balance – the virus.
But, the enactment of this collective karmic balance does not happened in such a direct way – and there are also forces that want to work against balance happening at all – because such balance begins to awaken the spiritual consciousness of human beings, which would be disastrous to the not-helpful beings of greed and materialism.
One of strongest forces that intervenes – that is – comes between the inspiration of accepting karma and the forces that make us totally unaware of karma – are the electromagnetic forces and the role of EMF in the expression of the virus.
A remarkable book – “The Invisible Rainbow: A History of Electricity and Life” by
Arthur Firstenberg, presents these correlations between electromagnetic forces and diseases, particularly flu:
1889 – The Power Line Era and its electrical radiations brought on the influenza pandemic.
1918 – The Radio Wave Era began with radio stations broadcasting VLF, UHF, and LF frequencies created the Spanish influenza pandemic of 1918.
1957 – The Radar Era began with hundreds of radar stations broadcasting millions of watts of microwave energy into the already overloaded electrical atmosphere surrounding and penetrating humans, animals, plants and all life. Radar gave birth to the Asian influenza pandemic of 1957.
1968 – The Satellite Era began with dozens of satellites beaming down microwave and EMF to the earth which ushered in the Hong Kong influenza pandemic of 1968.
1997 – The Wireless Era with digital cell phones and cell towers saturating the USA creating a 31% increase in diabetes cases in a single year. Cell phones interfere with glucose metabolism. Glucose uptake is considerably reduced in the region of the brain next to a cell phone. Thus, brain cancers increased exponentially.
1998 – The Hyper-Satellite Era – by (2000) Iridium, Globalstar had dozens of satellites, by (2017) Google, Facebook, etc. had 1,100 satellites, by (2019) Google plans 2,200 satellites, Space X 42,000 satellites, One Web 5,260 satellites, Telesat 512 satellites, Amazon 3,236. Diabetes, and subsequently heart disease, diabetes, and cancer go off the charts with new illnesses.
2006 – High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) Era exacerbated all electrical illnesses.
2020 – The 5G Era places endless antennas around and above us creating a soup of EMFs, microwaves, and milli-wave bombardment (along with beam-forming technology) causing millions of EMFs to exacerbate all electrical illnesses, including the current influenza “pandemic.”
These remarkable correlations reveal that we can remain quite unconscious of the effects of what we do not do that was required to be done by interposing the great distraction of electromagnetic advances that do the work of spiritual forces that have the aim of keeping humanity focused on mental ingenuity and the excitement of “control by the button” which, in avoiding facing karma only exponentially increases karma.
Maybe next post, not sure, we can begin working with helpful spiritual responses to the world – that is, ways of surrendering to what is being asked of us. These responses will all have to do with heart-awareness – awakened through the Silence and awakened in the world of Nature through the Stillness, and how heart-awareness is a way of action, the way of Wholeness-Action, change through receptivity. But there well may be more rabbit holes --- such as glysophate (RoundUp), that is, those not so helpful spiritual presences who work through big-agriculture. And another rabbit-hole – the technological way of altering the virus so that something that brings about balance, instead brings about uncontrollable disease.
