Surviving the Meltdown – Conspiracy of Time

This is a repost of an article I wrote over 10 years ago. The information seems to be even more timely now considering all that is transpiring across the globe with the fears and concerns regarding the Covid-19 global pandemic.

The following post with Higher Self addresses the “Zeitgeist,” or spirit of the times. It also speaks of the dream nature of time itself.

Global catastrophes, economic meltdowns, viral pandemics, World War III, etc., etc. are ominous threats that seem to loom just on the horizon, all adding to the dreaded fear that many people feel so very closely at this time. Surviving the meltdown is part of the zeitgeist of this particular era as we move closer to 2012 (as can be witnessed by the many websites and books that address this topic of survival). And yet there is also a feeling held by a growing number of individuals throughout the world that much of the upheaval is part of the birthing process of a New Consciousness, a frequency shift in our evolution as Co-Creators moving towards higher dimensions of Being.

Changes are happening quickly on the macro as well as the micro levels. Old belief systems that no longer serve you, both spiritual and secular, are crumbling–as they must–in order for the souls living during this time to progress beyond the hypnotic spell cast upon humanity asleep in the illusions of time and caught in the narrow dimensions of ego identity.

As fearful egos lost in the maelstrom of time, there seems to be no end to the ongoing nightmare of suffering, and yet a Great Awakening is upon the world as individuals begin to shake in resonance with the Divine Song that calls all souls to awaken to and remember their unique gifts of Love. Souls are casting aside as never before the shackles and straightjackets of narrow bigotry fostered through the generations by hearts corrupted by greed and soulless attachments to power and money.

Those who choose to remain asleep, who will not release attachments to the nightmare will remain in that realm of dark struggle until they are ready to move forward.

The you of worldly dimension lives in the realm where time is so powerful that it induces ways of thinking and acting in the world that is limiting and constraining. As you begin to live more and more naturally in the consciousness of Now, you will come to experience the world of time as just one dimension of your existence within the infinitely wider sphere of the Higher Self, beyond time and physical constraints.

Move and dance, write and draw; going from word to word, movement to movement, feeling to feeling without stopping the flow of awareness. As you lessen your desire to tightly control and mentally edit, the awareness will expand and merge into the vast backdrop of your True Nature. In this dimension of Being, there is no grappling or fighting with Self. It is all part of the larger “Dance of Creation.” It is all part of the Divine Song of the Cosmic River that flows effortlessly towards the Ocean of Freedom!

Enjoy and allow yourselves to remain in this state for as long as you wish. There is then no stopping the flow of what wishes to express. Stay in this place of deep wonderment and mystery, expanding and allowing the awareness to merge with the creative energy that swirls within and all around you.

No matter what you do in the world, the call of your Soul will ever beckon you to walk in alignment with your Authentic Self, which is a unique expression of the gifts you were born to express in Life.

The world of time exists in a consciousness that is fragmented and narrow. It supposes limitation and linear movement of energy and constraints of cause and effect. The body and consciousness appear to be confined solely to this plane of existence only when the awareness has bought completely into its illusion and attaches to it as being the only “reality.”

When the Soul begins to awaken even a little, the consciousness begins to understand its Self within a wider spectrum of “realities” that include and yet is not limited by narrow constraints of time and space. It is then able to act and respond to certain “crises” in the worldly arena without succumbing to the fears and very “real” events that take place with regularity on the earthly plane.

There are so many levels to the worldly dream…the narrow identity to body and place in time is but a dream dimension that is ongoing and repetitive. Caught in the energy loop of the recurring nightmare of suffering, this is the entanglement that the billions of souls struggle with on this particular planet.

And yet the entanglement is not a web made from steel. They are, rather, made from the gossamer strands of belief forms humankind has clung to through countless generations: “fight or be killed; win at all costs; amass a fortune to be happy; only the strong survive…” And the structures of fear built around these beliefs continue to condemn humanity to ones of violence and wars.

And yet, is there true safety in the world? The body will pass on sooner or later, as it must, in order for the soul to learn the many lessons offered in the dimensions of time and space. However, the observable world of disease, suffering, wars and death also contains the experiences of Love, joy, happiness and peace.

The world may be shaking with violence and wars, and yet the choice to live in the dimension of Love is the true shelter. Its power is not less strong than the barbs of anger and bigotry; of missiles and bombs. It is just that humanity as a whole has not learned to harness its powers as an answer to the recurring nightmare of wars.

Enter the Great Stillness, the Great Love, and feel the vibrations within. The Cosmic Music plays on and on, in ever-changing beauty and grace. From moment to moment, the energy moves to express and create.

If you allow yourselves to calmly observe and to deeply feel, the energy gathers momentum and power as there will be no constriction or tightness around it. It will be like waking up from a deep sleep, sloughing off the dusty veils that have kept the mind in one place and in one way of thinking. The environment then takes on a clarity and brightness, as though lit from within by a gentle light of protection.

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part X

As mentioned in the previous post, the Bliss Resonance in the body starts as a subtle vibration in the spine (small like a grain of sand). It is not difficult to feel. It just requires a slight shift in how we normally “feel” into our bodies.

Normally we do not think about or consider the “overall” sensation of the body. In other words, feeling into all vibrations of the body as one resonance of sensation, one resonance of Being.

The human body and consciousness is exquisitely sensitive! This is amply confirmed by the depth of emotions and sensitivities we have to circumstances and environments. The suggestion here is to use the sensitivities (and sometimes over-sensitivities) that you already have and focus them within on finer and finer subtleties of vibrations, especially as can be felt in the central core of the spine.

Again, the Bliss Resonance is not difficult to experience! It just requires using the sensitivity that is already there and focusing it within on finer and finer vibrations…going slightly deeper, and then slightly deeper again, etc.

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part IX

The visceral experience of the Bliss Resonance puts the mind and body into a kind of swoon, held by the “current” that moves deliciously in the spine!

This “current” is connected with by feeling into finer and finer sensations. As I’ve mentioned before, there is a paradoxical affect that occurs when feeling into the subtleties of sensations: at the same time a bliss response occurs in the spine!

The bliss response initially starts as a sensation that is small, like a “grain of sand” vibrating in the spine…and yet it has the power to draw the mind within. This subtle sensation intimates of something that is vast and mysterious…the “contortion” of the Bliss Resonance!

The mind that focuses upon the fine “grain-of-sand” of the Bliss Resonance gets drawn into what is like a current that gets stronger and stronger the deeper you go into the subtlety.

Hold to the “Divine Current!” You will come to experience the body as a conduit/lightning rod for the Divine to ground the Bliss Resonance into the vibratory space you inhabit!

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part VIII

The Bliss Resonance, when moving through the body, holds it in its “contortion” energy. The contortion energy creates a most delicious sensation in the central core of the spine that has a way of naturally and spontaneously “dancing” or “contorting” the body.

The mind goes into meditative trance, which offers the opportunity and invitation to go deeper and deeper into the subtle realms. The body spontaneously moves/adjusts into certain postures that align with the energetic “geometries” of the ecstatic current.

The human play and identification with the body goes on…and yet, side-by-side with the physics of the the human experience, there is also the infinitely wider experience of the Divine Expansion, felt in the body as a contortion of the Bliss Resonance!

In this experience, sometimes referred to as “Kundalini Awakening,” in the initial stages there is still an ego “self” that identifies with its experiences on Planet Earth (along with all its dramas). At the same time, there is “Higher Self” that observes and experiences both Earthly and Heavenly (Bliss) realms.

When the mind and body are “held” by the energetic contortion of the Bliss Current, identification with and visceral experience of the current has a way of revealing the exquisitely subtle presence of the “Divine Observer,” the consciousness that “peeks” through as the body and mind are held in the contortion field of the Bliss Resonance!

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part VII

I believe it is important to go deep quickly when feeling into the subtlety of sensations, of the life force in the body. Otherwise, it is too easy get distracted by the mind chatter that keeps you stuck in endless loops of superficial thoughts, memories, desires, etc.

When feeling “below the surface” of familiar sensations, the focus of mind is turned inwardly to vibrations that at first may not be familiar. In order to “hold” or focus upon these subtle sensations, it requires a more delicate “touch”or tuning in.

This is not difficult to do, it just requires a different relationship with sensations, with the Life Force. We all have the sensitivity to connect with finer and finer vibrations/sensations. It’s just a matter of making up the mind to feel below the surface of superficial sensations…and then to continue going deeper and deeper.

No matter where you are in this process, start wherever you are in the moment. If you are sad, feel the sensation of sadness and then feel slightly below the surface…and then go slightly deeper, etc.

The benefit of going deep quickly, no matter where you are in the process, is that you want to break yourself out of the familiar patterns of remaining on the surface of feelings.

Going deep quickly is a way to disrupt the habitual patterns that keep the mind locked in superficial thinking and feeling.

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part VI

When the underlying Bliss Resonance begins to bubble up in the energetic field of the body, the sensations that are created draws the attention deeply within…if you choose to follow the pathway of subtle vibrations that open up.

The Bliss Resonance is an oceanic reverberation that comes first as an intimation of something vast and mysterious…like a most subtle rumbling beneath the feet. At this point, however, the mind is simply not yet familiar with and perhaps unwilling to feel into vibrations that are so subtle!

What I believe happens is that the habitual patterns of mind keep the focus of attention tied up with distractions of memories, desires, judgements, past hurts, fears, etc. It is not yet accustomed to intentionally feeling into the fine waves of vibrations that move in the energetic field of the body.

When you make up your mind to turn the attention onto the overall sensation of the body…with intention to feel into subtle vibrations, there is a natural uplift of energies that initially imparts a gentle “feel-good” sensation.

No matter how subtle and barely noticeable this initial “feel-good” sensation might be, it is important to latch onto and “hold” with ever-deepening attention to the subtlety of the sensation.

When you consciously recognize this subtle “feel-good” sensation, you will understand that this represents the beginning of a very different relationship with your “Life Force” and the underlying Bliss Resonance!

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part V

When feeling into the overall vibration of the body, you may notice how the focus of  mind flits back and forth, between thoughts and feelings…and a combination of both.

Something I notice during periods of meditation is that the deeper I feel into the fine vibrations of the body, the more there seems to arise a primal “bubbling up” of what at first creates a “feel-good” sensation in the body (and especially in the spine).

This “feel-good” sensation has a way of focusing the mind. Perhaps it is not so much a focusing of mind as it is that the thinking, analytical mind is rendered inactive (or less active). For moments at a time, the mind does not flit around like it is normally accustomed to doing.

The sensation “captures” or “holds” the mind, as though in an energetic “vice-grip.” During such moments, the energy is felt like a current that moves the body spontaneously into certain dynamic postures…and these postures create what I refer to as “contortion energy,” delicious sensations that draw the mind ever-deeper.

The contortion energy, the awakening Kundalini, is the body’s response when attuning with the underlying Bliss Resonance.

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part IV

Connecting with the “resonance of bliss” is a feeling experience, a refining process that transforms coarse vibrations into finer and finer sensations. The inner focus of mind happens naturally as you feel into the overall sensation of the body. The process is helped immensely by feeling into the posture of the erect spine.

When the antennae of the heart (of feelings) is finely tuned to subtle vibrations, it is through the subtlety that the wider field of the Bliss Resonance begins to percolate up in the awareness.

Usually when sitting, as during meditation practice, we do not think of or consider all that is involved in keeping the body balanced, with spine erect. It takes the muscles, nervous system, life force, etc. all working together to maintain balance.

Although subtle, there is an overall sensation of the body seated in meditation posture. It is subtle only because we take it for granted and usually do not consider feeling into the play of life force that holds the body in place while seated.

When you take the time to feel into the body while seated, the sensations are hardly subtle. The sensations are easy enough to feel because the flow of energy in certain muscle groups that are required to hold the body erect in seated posture creates vibration….which in turn creates sensation.

My suggestion here is to feel into the overall sensation of the body instead of any specific sensation. The purpose of this is to feel the overall vibration or resonance of the body…which allows you to more easily feel and connect with the underlying Bliss Resonance!

Reverberations of the Underlying Bliss Resonance, Part III

When sitting erect with spine straight, as in meditation practice, notice what happens to the mind’s center of focus. In my experience, there is a “lifting up” sensation that includes the lifting up of the mind. This is all very subtle, but the sensation that occurs when straightening the spine seems to also push the mind upwards.

This lifting up of the mind has a way of focusing the attention at the crown area and spiritual eye. Although this sensation is subtle, it is worth exploring because of the focus of mind that can occur as a result of this uplift of energy/life force.

To me it feels like the focus of mind is “held” in place, as though gripped by the tension of energy that is pushed upwards by the energy that it takes to keep the spine erect.

It seems that it is the sensation of the tension that holds or focuses the mind. If this does not make sense, it is helpful to slightly exaggerate the lifting up of the spine, while feeling deeply into the subtle sensations created. Now, if you hold the gentle to moderate tension long enough, the sensation created in the body is easy enough to feel.

As you feel into the sensation deeply enough, you may notice the “feel-good” sensation rising up in the awareness…and this is the particular sensation that seems to have the power to hold the mind’s focus. It is also this sensation that draws the mind deeper and deeper to what feels like “Center.”

Ultimately, maintaining visceral connection with this “feel-good” sensation creates a dynamic relationship with your experience of “Center,” or “Central Core” of Being.

When you are feeling into finer and finer sensations that reverberate in the central channel of the spine, you may notice how the mind becomes deeply poised upon a most delicate balance point, listening and feeling to the finest vibrations of sound and sensation!

When the body and mind are inwardly directed and “poised” upon the finer nuances of sensations, the consciousness is then primed to go deeper yet into the subtle realms, called by the intimations and echoes of the vastly wider and oceanic Bliss Resonance!

The Bliss Resonance comes at first as an intimation…like listening to the beautiful strains of a song played in the far distance… like enjoying the atoms of a most subtle fragrance wafting in the air from a garden far away!

I believe that the body and nervous system are uniquely equipped to connect with the finest vibrations, echoes and reverberations of the Life Force that flows through the energetic field of consciousness.

It seems to require a shift in our feeling perspective. From outward focused feelings to inward focused feelings. From feelings that focus upon density (of body and emotions) to feelings that focus upon subtlety (of intuition and intimations).

As I’ve mentioned before, it is not difficult to experience the fine vibrations/sensations that bubble up in the channel of the spine and elsewhere in the body. However, when the “antennae” of your feelings are open wide enough, you will then be receptive to the deeper resonance that comes first through intuition and “intimations,” the experience of the “soundless sound!”
