Existential



As we develop beyond the mainstream and idealistic new age perspectives we encounter the existential truth. The existential truth, that comes with an existential crisis of consciousness is not that of the overly nihilistic position, it is not that we are all alone and adrift in a random accidental cosmos. It is that we are interconnected to everything and therefore eventually come to understand and experience the consequences of all actions. Everything has a price that is inherent within the moment that you evoke or act in any way. The traditional mystic sought to escape Karma and Karma in reality is instant, it is not a response as such, but is just the energy that is evoked simultaneously, and which we are not conscious of in the moment.

The way forward? So it is we then approach life with more sobriety, yet stay open to follow some of the excitement, bliss and continue to engage with the unfolding drama of life. The existential crisis, once accepted, is then just part of the emerging terrain and we are freer to adjust and to navigate to the swirls of energies that pull us and push us. Control and surrender are now utilized a little more consciously and life itself is its own reward, potentially giving us the opportunity to enjoy vocation with a mutable purpose and human connection in each moment… and with less fixtures of expectation than ever before. 

Not attached to happiness, excitement and joy, life can be more enjoyable, when we approach it in terms of personal satisfaction.

Full Moon


A powerful and very important full moon on Thursday in England, Friday here in HK. 
This coming full moon is less than two weeks away from the exact Uranus square with Pluto, the last exact square of the 2012 era. THIS IS IMPORTANT. This full moon is really challenging and quite crucial, it feels to me as if it has evolutionary consequences. The energy straddles 2 Lizard and 3 Serpent, flavoured by 2 Lizard especially as it will be 2 Lizard GMT at the moment of the full moon at 18.07 GMT on the 5th March. This speaks to me of the bifurcation of the timelines that I talked about recently (Here)

Now is the time for a can-do attitude, take on the responsibility of your life situation and dig deep to find the positive attitude based on abundance and compassion, whilst not getting hyped up with heat and uber-aggressive will, tricky? Yes very, there is a need to approach any difficulties with refinement and grace whilst under pressure. Evoke patience, diligence and concentration. Harbour the intent that the world can change towards the benevolent and be prepared to play your small part. Be mindful around this full moon.
The whole of March we are dealing with strong energies, ( to add to the picture a total eclipse on the 20th and Saturn going retrograde on the 14th)...now , remember when this happens, when we are dealing with strong energies there is enormous opportunity for positive change

Alchemy

Science was born from Alchemy, the search for the prima-materia was derived from Atlantean knowledge.

Science is still trying to find the prima-materia through atom smashing.

The doorway to prima materia is the valance shell or valence electron, especially apparent in transition metals.

The on-off oscillation of matter is the door opening and closing to the prima-materia.

The base substance of matter is allied to the ground of consciousness and is not so much to be found 'inside' the particulate, but is accessed via the 'outside' of the atom.

The Alchemical Transformation of the Human Experience



 

Humanity is Choosing a Path

The Earth and the world of humankind are presently in an alchemical pressure cooker and we are reaching a pivotal juncture in this transmutation of our reality. The discomfort of everyday life is apparent to anyone who is even mildly awake; we are without doubt in the midst of a mutation of the human experience. In this pressure cooker environment, your creative will and your faith in life are far more potent than logic or rational analysis.

Now is the time to bring in the light. Now is the time to push forward with any creative and innovative projects that you have been considering. If you have been inspired by such an impulse, then develop it now.  By ‘innovative’, I mean the merging of two or more different paradigms of endeavour to create a new product or concept. Anyone who has been nurturing the idea of a social platform that makes any form of consciousness exploration more accessible should push forward with it. The time is now.

Do It, Despite the Pressure

It is hard, nigh on impossible, to keep your life balanced within the intense but creative flux state we are experiencing. However, the evolutionary imperative of our day is for creative innovation. The energy flow is erratic and volatile, with high-octane potency. We all have to maintain our lives, but the need for the new outweighs any attempt to stand still. It is either regression or progression for our species. I suggest that our deep intentionality can tilt this fecund force quite dramatically. The challenge is to keep coming back to your centre. Get back up and reinstate any benevolent, abundant and creative impetus you have.

The human species is coming to a proverbial fork in the road. For the last few years, I have been holding a vision that at some point during the year 2016, we will collectively make an essential choice of which path to take at this major crossroads.

The Indicators of this Fundamental Choice

As I see it, the indicators that we are on the brink of making this fundamental choice are as follows:
1. The completion of the galactic alignment of the 2012 era, which started around 1980 and finishes in 2016. This appears to be the most relevant of the big-picture astrological factors in relation to the Mayan Long Count Calendar (see the work of John Major Jenkins). The Winter Solstice Sun has been forming a conjunction with the galactic equator since 1980—this is an astrological artefact that expresses the high-energy cosmic influx, including plasma, that has been flooding the Earth’s energy field.

2. The completion of the Uranus square with Pluto, which to the astrological community is the sociological indicator of the 2012 era. The last exact Uranus–Pluto square will take place on 17/18 March this year, this being the prime moment of the aspect. The two planets will be in a final square, with a one-degree orb of influence, in January and February 2016, after which events will play out in the global socio-political arena. 

3.  The creative tension that is building in the world’s environment of consciousness—in all domains of society, including economic, political and cultural. This is affecting every individual in unique and personal ways. The global culture is clearly in transition. The socio-economic system is decaying and what is emerging is a new developmental level of consciousness that changes values, psychology, sociology, metaphysics, economics, politics and everyday human experience. What form that will take is up to us all. As individuals we are each required to tap into our own psyches and to follow the creative impulse that is trying to be heard.

5. The flux state of the natural environment. The term ‘global warming’ is totally inadequate to describe this, but most people are aware that the environment is changing, one way or another. We could simply say that nature is behaving weirdly and the whole energy field of Earth is in a systemic transformation. Remember: we live within that energy field.

6. The Voyager spacecraft’s imminent arrival in a zone of space where interstellar energy creates a counter-rotating spin in the fabric of space–time. The Voyager is the furthest-reaching vehicle we have sent out into space so far and it is representative of our species. Launched in 1977 (Chiron’s discovery year), it carries a record of our species, as well as our location in space. Humanity has sent an artefact into deep space—this can be thought of as an act of magic, an evocative transmission. The Voyager has pierced, or is about to pierce, the solar system’s boundary and will be received into a realm where the interstellar field merges with the solar field.


Choosing the Timeline

Elsewhere, I have written extensively about the 2012 effect, aka the Mayan ‘end date’. For many people, the passing of the 2012 Winter Solstice pushed the Mayan Calendar out of their consideration. As someone who has studied and used the Mayan Calendar for over two decades, I find this to be short sighted. The Long Count Calendar, from which the ‘end date’ derives, measures cycles of time in units of 5,125 years—this is allied to Precession, which is five of these cycles, or approximately 25,625 years.

Having the perspective of such an enormous evolutionary cycle, with its accompanying evolutionary changes, requires us to reference a far larger timeframe than a single day in our calendar, or even a single year. The entire alchemical transition is far more likely to take place over two to three decades, but the contextual trajectory of the emerging evolutionary cultural change will be decided over the course of the next year or so. In short, we are deciding upon a major timeline in the fabric of time–space. My feeling is that the July 2016 conjunction of Jupiter with the Moon’s North Node, in a trine with Pluto, is also a significant factor in regard to the changing of the timeline.

It is time to consider our life from an expanded perspective that embraces larger timeframes and larger spatial considerations, as well as offering us a more complex connectivity. We each in our own small way now have the opportunity to help move our society towards the more benevolent, abundant and progressive.

Over the last 15 years, I have been weaving all these points—and a lot more besides—into a developmental map of reality that I call the Enchantments of Life. I offer a six-part transformational process on Skype for anyone who wishes to pursue this process with me. This is particularly relevant for anyone who feels a sense of mission. My website laurencejameslucas.com provides an introduction to my thesis, as well as details about working with me.

I have known Laurence for around twenty years and consider myself privileged to have watched how his work has developed over that time. I can still honestly say that he is the most exciting astrologically based teacher I have yet discovered; his views are far reaching and comprehensive, his vision for humanity’s future is far-sighted to say the least. His comments are always very timely for me and once again he has not disappointed.

An Enchantments of Life Inspired Philosophical Exploration



This article is written for those who know The Enchantments of Life

At the planetary scale of consciousness, reality starts to become virtual, the past is not fixed. Reality is a construct derived from the totality of collective agreement. Our past is a story. Yesterday has a tangible quality, our personal childhood memories are mostly scant and the experience of being a child is essentially a mystery to the adult mind. The further back in time we go, the more time decays. Time decays with time. We understand that the future is malleable. The further we look into the future the more variables we will perceive and in some way this true of the ancient past.

We exist now and the present is a nodal point for multiple timelines, each timeline is real, virtually and can become real to experience if accepted as such.

What is the truth of our origins, our evolution, our ancient history, Atlantis, Egypt, Sumer, what beings have been involved in our development? What involvement has there been from deities, other dimensional beings, discarnate elemental spirits, extra-terrestrials, inter-terrestrials? 

How are we linked to other beings and other species? What contracts are in place? How do we re-negotiate contracts of reality that no longer serve our further evolution? Who is in control, who is in control of the controllers, and how much of reality is open to creative freewill?

The dialectic within the exploratory threads of the internet, (ie, not Wikipedia, nor Google approved, not mainstream media) is a surging growing divergence of perspectives inter-laced with self forming structures of potentiality. Meaning, that there is an expanding collective imagination that is coagulating into potential realities that are semi manifest. 

I contend that an understanding of reality requires the lens of the developmental structure of our psyches. To understand our reality we have to be able to see there are different levels of reality, not only in terms of other dimensions, but here now all around us, hidden in plain sight. These other levels of reality reveal themselves to us when we look for them, which is based on when we are ready to look for them.. The one looking, the observer is also subject to these other levels of consciousness, so that means we are all looking through a perspective that is both unique yet generic. The different perspectives of each us, is generated from the developmental levels of human evolution and the unique way we weave the generic frequencies consciousness.

The developmental structure of how consciousness evolves reveals the symbiotic relationship between an individual’s evolution and cultural evolution.

Each level of reality is constructed from consciousness that permeates the physical atomic world, each level of reality is expressed by its own artifacts.

Everything’s true, but what’s truer? 

The TRUTH is beyond reach yet always present.

The TRUTH, the ultimate nature of GOD which is beyond all time and space is something we are forever evolving towards, in other words the ultimate reality is a mystery, yet its’, or perhaps we should say his, her and its’ expression is within everything and is everything.

Existence is an omni-directional all pervasive intelligence that we can label the ground of consciousness, which is self learning, self organizing, self re-adjusting through dynamic omni-present feedback. We live within a unified, yet semi-compartmentalized field of unlimited intelligence.

From our perspective the field of consciousness contains structure, each structure is permeable and interconnected there is no such thing as complete isolation. Each structure is calibrated by its framing of time and space, which enables the level of complexity of the prevalent story that shapes the actions of all those within it. All endeavour, all art, all metaphysical and physical science, all experience is subject to the time/space frame. The time/space frame is most evident with calendars, how we divide and label each component of time and the named borders of space, clan, village, town, city, international market, global village, planetary reality etc.

From a higher perspective the structures of the developmental process are akin to frequency waves.

Everything is true? This means that everything has its own truth, everything is self-reinforcing, self consistent… to a degree, not fully enclosed because it contains a crack, a wound, a discordance that is the portal, connection and opening to a larger truth. 

The larger the truth, the more complex reality becomes. The measure of complexity of reality is the measure of its number of constituent parts, pathways between parts and scale of encompassment. A more complex reality embraces more time, more space, more affinity with more of life, with more of existence, in more ways.

 Each person adjusts to the complexity of their scale of reality. As reality become more complex, the two primary impulses--of love/openess/acceptance or destruction/power/control--  grow stronger. Which is to say the pressure increases either to love more of life, accept more of existence and be an expression of life’s unending beauty and majesty OR to control the complications of reality--which no individual can do, so they are tempted by the ‘darkside’--to align with the energy that pretends to be in control. Control is only ever partial, yet important in evolution, for we grow incrementally. A degree of control creates structure.

Now we are feeling the evolutionary pressure to embrace a much larger reality, which requires greater co-operation and acceptance, yet confrontation with the shadow of reality and increased sovereignty. So the co-operation I speak of is not based on finding easy consensual comfort, it is based on the intent to solve the relevant problems of our world through a creative non violent competition, where the most creative is honoured and valued in each moment.

 Leadership then naturally becomes a revolving doorway, as the spotlight, the status, success is temporary, celebrity erodes as fame is a passing irrelevance. Self satisfaction is more important and acknowledgement from others is also important, but not to be overly fixated upon. Why, because acclaim is an illusions that trap the ego within its own prison.  Power is the greatest illusion, for the greatest power is non local and always beyond the present frame. 


We desire the freedom that comes with accepting some limitations, whilst not limiting the divine essence within us, so that we can continue to flow and to grow at a rate that we can accommodate. At present there is an overwhelm due to the evolutionary pressure of the transition from one level of culture to another. The outgoing reality based on scientism is collapsing, the story that accompanies scientism includes a neo-Darwinian projection and a history that starts only 5,000 years ago and then only fuzzily. 

The contract has expired. That truth haas served us, now we need a more complex truth.

The new contract is being negotiated, inadvertently to a large degree, for the competitive race to claim reality comes with the desire to authorize THE TRUTH. It will not be THE TRUTH, it will be a partial truth, that will be truer than the previous mythological construct of scientism. We are not able to grow beyond incremental stages, the species is moving towards the planetary scale of reality but it is impossible to say exactly when that will manifest. So the next truth that congeals will be or should be 'better' than the last truth of scientism.

The context of reality is changing. Context is linked to the framing of time/space, the story, the contract agreed upon. To look to science or I should scientism, for true progress, is now a folly, to see context requires understanding the mythological realm, the stories that are being told and being created by us all, what story will agree to you? On the fringe the timeframe has been extended back to the great cataclysm of about 11-13,000 years ago, a new history is gradually emerging, an ancient advanced civilization coming more clearly into view and with that the questions of what other beings were involved in this ancient civilization and, how were they involved?

At present there are different timelines that appear to be visible, the past is not fixed, because consciousness is the ground of being and consciousness is unlimited in its creativity. Many different beings from any different timelines wish to anchor our reality in their timeline. Beings like ET, travel between the stars or the dimensions, which is to say they travel time and therefore come from a future, not necessarily the future we are on.

The collective consciousness rules the reality we will select, the scale of the collective reality involved with this negotiation is based on the totality of the human species. In other words we have not yet embraced the extraterrestrial community, we are moving towards the global and then onto the planetary frame of space (and this also mean time). The many different extra-terrestrial and other-dimensional beings are outside of the human species energy field yet interconnected, looking in, involved with to some extent and trying to pull us towards their agenda, their timeline, their story.
The darker agendas within the theatre, incite fear whilst promising greater comfort and protection from the induced fear if we surrender our autonomy.


Enslavement of the spirit requires our agreement. The time we are living in is uncomfortable, if you feel some level of discomfort that seems to be in the energy, the all pervasive field that we live within then you are in touch with reality. Obviously we do not want too much discomfort, the solution seems to me, to keep engaging with the creative frontier. 

Luckily there is a large enough resistance, non compliance and creativity to keep the game going and it is a game.

Those who conspire against humanity do indeed suppress knowledge of the past, transparently evident with Egypt for example, they do hide extra-ordianry artifacts and information, texts and technology. However the greatest truth they hide is that they do not know THE TRUTH. There is no absolute control possible, only partial control.

 Human creativity is extraordinary, there is no problem present within our reality that does not have a solution that can be accessed. Humanity is forever accessing this dynamic creative engine, that is existence itself. As new revolutionary ideas or revelations about reality emerge they grow in popularity and as they becoming a movement and are gaining power they then become co-opted by dark agendas. 

For example the environmental crisis is fundamentally a crisis of consciousness that requires an expansion of consciousness, an awareness of a greater context. There is no shortage of energy in the cosmos or within Earth’s realm and therefore the next contextual level is abundant and holds all of the solutions to the immediate physical problems. By diverting this awareness to inadequate solutions--ie recycling plastic bags, unleaded petrol, suggesting a carbon tax, harking on about food, water, economic shortages, constantly plugging the over-population meme--people get hypnotized by content rather than looking at context. The intelligences that engineer the focus on this impoverished content, do not attempt to solve the problems... this is now transparently obviously to many people.

If I was to be asked for advice, I would suggest…

Stay free, or at least partially detached from all large scale movements, retain your ability to think for yourself and ask more intelligent questions, debate without getting involved in low level debates that descend into personality power battles, (easier for woman than men to detach from these), recognize that many people have part of the truth and no nodal point in the social theatre, be that an individual, guru, movement, website, organization, has all of the truth.

Your intuition and imagination is a valuable commodity, especially when it works hand with your intellect. The imagination is the creative function, keep it free. Virtually everything coming out of Hollywood is loaded with social programming, the scripts have become incredibly diminished and formulaic, the agenda of the controllers is apparent. In many ways fiction is more powerful than factual reportage, because fiction over rides the intellect, we allow in far more information and energy whilst watching a film than say reading the news.

Utilize your imagination and recognize how the collective imagination is covertly shaped, in this way you are able to retain the autonomy of the inherent co-creative function of the psyche. We are all co-creating the world, our vision, our perception is shaping the potentiality, the pre-manifest energy.

Now is the time to have a larger vision of life, the vision of scientism is full of rich and dense information but within a relatively small context. Envisage a larger context for all social issues, do not let your internal dialogue be shaped by the mainstream media, (including entertainment and the centralized aspects of the internet, ie Wikipedia) the polarities offered by the mainstream are product of a singular context, the seeming diversity of the populist script is actually contextually tight, rigid and conforming to a unified story, this story is but one version of reality.

Now is the time to ask bigger questions, contextually intelligent questions that energize and provide further unfolding questions, questions that feed the flow of creativity.

Expand your vision of life.

2014: What is Going On?



An Astrological Interpretation



The short answer to the question ‘What is going on this year?’ is that we are still experiencing the 2012 effect!

Within this larger context, I would like to draw attention to a significant astrological alignment that will affect us particularly in the first half of 2014. This is a Grand Cross—when four planets are arranged in the shape of a square—involving Mars, Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto. 

What this means is that we are being stretched in four directions as we experience the relentless tension of the four primary forces pulling upon us. The four forces I speak of can be described as:
·     The Sacred Warrior imperative, which includes the courage of evolved self-interest;
·     The need for and supply of nourishment, safety and comfort;
·     A sense of excitement, distraction and innovation;
·     And lastly, the pressure of fundamental deep change.
This will be especially intense in April, when all four planets will be in exact alignment at the 14th degree of the cardinal signs of Libra, Cancer, Aries and Capricorn, respectively. 

The natal Sun of the United States happens to be at 14 degrees of Cancer. Thus the full tension and transformational force of the Grand Cross will be strongly activated for that nation, ushering in the next stage of its development. Its economy, in the first instance, will be very obviously affected, but more generally we can expect some major disruptions that will have global repercussions. The global drama—the clash of values and consciousness agendas—seems to be reaching a tipping point…

 

How does this affect us on a human level?

Inherent within all of this is a confrontation with our personal shadow and its attendant burden, inter-related to the shadow/astral energy of our immediate environment. More subtly, we are experiencing a dissolution of permanence, which is opening up a whole potentiality for our species and enabling a direct awareness of the wondrous mystery and connection to the cosmic and transcendental realities.
We are being challenged to work together in the most difficult circumstances, whilst recognizing that there is an opportunity to establish a profoundly positive shift in social values.

The global economy is extremely fragile and the breaking point is the US Dollar—if not this year, then within two years we will see economic turbulence. Crypto-currencies, like Bitcoin, are inevitably part of the future of money.

 

Why is this happening? 

We can point to our changing relationship with the Galaxy, as mapped by the Mayan Long Count Calendar, with its turning point on 21 December 2012. On a physical level, the Earth’s energy field is now being flooded with high-energy plasma, as well as by intense subtle energies, both of which are necessitating an evolution of consciousness. This is what I call the ‘cosmic influx’ or the ‘2012 effect’. 

This cosmic influx is surging through the totality of the environment—which encompasses the physical, energetic and psychic—and is the cause of the current instability on Earth, including weather patterns and ecological disruption. During the latter half of 2013, the cosmic influx was being stepped down from the planet’s interface with the Cosmos to the astral planes (the collective emotional realm), creating what we could call an ‘astral storm’.
The pivotal issue here is the element of human consciousness within the Earth’s energy field.

The 2012 effect is stepped down into the social context in 2014, this means the year is a major key to an ongoing evolutionary transformation. Do remember the truth of what is going on will not be reported accurately in the mainstream media, TV or newspapers or even scientific magazines. The context of the mainstream is heavily engineered and therefore twisted and distorted, this is an essential thing to bear in mind at all times.

 

How do we navigate the 2012 effect?

We are being challenged to recalibrate our energy to align with the recalibration of the Earth, which, in the sociological realm, will eventually translate into a whole-scale shift of values. This is inevitably messy. Will the pressure burst through the ‘walls’, or will it be incrementally integrated as we navigate the changes? A bit of both, I suspect.

To navigate this effect, we must keep re-establishing our composure on a daily basis, returning again and again to centre as the fluctuating energies pull and push us this way and that. There is no cave in which to withdraw for any prolonged period; we are being forced to stay engaged, yet to draw upon our own sovereignty without getting pulled into mass hysteria or the easy solutions of the mob mindset.

There is no simple formula that fits everyone. The emphasis of the different planetary forces is unique to each individual. However, although this is no easy time, energy is available that can be harnessed for an evolution of our consciousness and for life-enhancing projects.

 

Key Words for the Planets in Play

Mars

Mars in Libra (retrograde in March). The themes of conflicted desires; the challenge of the Sacred Warrior; demanding a retreat where necessary and acting decisively when you can; holding onto truth whilst under attack, defending justice, anger at the injustice and knowing how to fight inequities without spinning out; appropriately fighting for truth.

Jupiter

Jupiter in Cancer (aligning with Sirius). The themes of comfort, safety, nourishment and care for our familiars; emotional nourishment as the primary consideration, whilst being totally interconnected to physical nourishment, including diet, exercise and clean water.

Uranus

Uranus in Aries. The themes of excitement about the emerging changes and the impulse towards social innovation, or a surrender to endless novelty and pleasure-addiction, constellated around an adrenalin-based comfort zone that denies the state of affairs in the world.

Pluto

Pluto in Capricorn. The themes of intense pressure caused by the fundamental changes to the underlying structure of civilization, symbiotic with the desperate attempts of dark forces working through the autocratic system to oppress humanity, creating a sense of overwhelm; a feeling of powerlessness, or a deep sense of the evolutionary impulse and a powerful motivation to be the change.

Saturn

Saturn in Scorpio. The themes of holding, adjusting and releasing boundaries; confrontation with the personal shadow as well as that of the immediate environment; and repression or mastery with resolute patience.

Chiron and Neptune

Chiron and Neptune in Pisces are the significators of the cosmic influx dissolving the feeling of certainty held by the collective consciousness, whilst connecting us to an omni-directional potential.
