Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Default Carlos Castaneda

Any other Carlos Castaneda devotees out there? Was just re-reading some of The Fire From Within, and came across a wonderful passage describing the divine spiritual connection of the inner and the outer (of the above and the below). Thought I'd share:
---
"He [don Juan, of course] then began his explanation. He briefly outlined the truths about awareness he had discussed: that there is no objective world, but only a universe of energy fields which seers call the Eagle's emanations. That human beings are made of the Eagle's emanations and are in essence bubbles of luminescent energy; each of us is wrapped in a cocoon that encloses a small portion of these emanations. That awareness is achieved by the constant pressure that the emanations outside our cocoons, which are called emanations at large, exert on those inside our cocoons. That awareness gives rise to perception, which happens when the emanations inside our cocoons align themselves with the corresponding emanations at large." (p. 108--an auspicious number, indeed!)
---
I thought this passage captures what many in this website community often discuss. That we are all part of each other, which is the divine universal spirit. Is this earth at large and its inhabitants becoming more aware or less, do you think? Are our divine inner energies trapped in our cocoons out of alignment with the energies of the Eagle's emanations at large, causing lack of awareness, perception and compassion for one another, this Earth, and those from other worlds?

Carlos Castaneda . . . now, that would have been one mind-altering interview with Shirley on IE Radio for all of us to hear!

Namaste,
Steph

Hi Steph, I recall Shirley saying in one of the IE interviews that she had met Carlos and did not have a favorable opinon. I believe it was the interview with Wayne Dyer. I would love to hear more about this from Shirley. Maybe here or in a future book?
Love,
Joanne

I'll have to listen to that interview. I am not surprised that she met him, and even if not a favorable opinion of him, I bet the interview would have been amazing! Thanks for the info, Joanne!

Steph

Hi Steph

Personally, I think humans are most definitely becoming more aware, albeit not everyone and not at the same time. And I think many factors play into this. There was a time when we knew very little about what was happening in other countries. Slowly, through the years that veil is thinning. More and more people are uniting and coming from an inner strength…the whistle blowers, world humanitarian efforts, people letting their voices be heard regarding the way they are governed. Technology is reflecting consciousness….social media websites providing instant connections around the world, the many organizations available on the internet to further expand awareness spiritually and scientifically. As well, more and more “hidden sins” so to speak are coming to the surface (government, leaders, military, church, corporations, etc.), which needs to happen in order to be released and healed.

The Earth too is releasing its bottled up pressures (from years of our abuse) with earthquakes, volcanos, etc., to nurture and restore balance as the Mother of all life forms on the planet. It is a process which takes time; one that we may not see complete in our lifetimes. And although it may appear we are taking one step forward and two steps back, I think we are definitely on that road, yet ironically right where we need to be in respect to healing, learning, and progressing.

And I think more and more people are open to other life forms in the Universe visiting the planet. Look at all the disclosures from so many countries around the world. That to me is encouraging. Why our country still insists on digging their heels (and heads) in the ground is a mystery, but hopefully we will as a collective be able to turn that behavior around.

These are my thoughts so far

Love...Peg

Hi Steph

Just wanted to share a little more to what I wrote above.Your don Juan quote holds what I feel is a key element … “perception”. And to that, I would add “responsibility”. Now more than ever, the famous quote “BE the change you want to see” is so relevant to all we are experiencing. Shifting our perception, or the way we view something, often brings a new understanding as a whole. And taking responsibility for ourselves and our actions (including the intent and feelings behind them) gets projected out into the collective consciousness (Eagle’s emanations) and becomes manifested into what we experience, individually and collectively.

I have often contemplated the discussions held regarding 2012 and Ascension and its heralding of new energies. And the way I am perceiving it right now is that we are living through the transition of attaining a higher dimension. It sometimes feels like to me that we are in a state of Limbo, meaning the old 3D energy of duality (right/wrong, separateness, etc.) is dissolving, yet haven’t fully achieved the ascended realm of oneness, unity. But I can sense or perceive newer vibrations coming forth. The old ways of solving things are no longer working and I think more and more people are becoming aware of that, and that will lead to the change we want to experience.

Namaste...Peg
