creative CalvinI will admit that like my spiritual journey, my journey through the creative has been studied, considered, and lived for many decades now. I have pondered long the nature of creativity and I have been a careful firsthand observer of it.  Over the years I have had pieces of the puzzle,  I knew deep down that there was a way to help make creativity FLOW instead of merely flash for a few short seconds.

When I awoke many new  pieces of the puzzle came into view.  When the bliss field emerged as a part of my experience more as a steady state  experience I realized that what we call the human orgasm is part of a larger spectrum of bliss energy that is wildly creative and that once we awaken and can properly ride this bliss wave without falling off of it or needing to bleed it away through sexual union (this doesn’t happen in awakening, but that is itself another blog entry), this same baseline energy can be used in the same way that the flow of energy in a river is used as long as the water flows.  What I am saying is that in awakening energy that is orgasmic in nature flows through every corner of your being, the proverbial genie in the bottle being released and bathing the entire body in the rich nourishing flow of what the Hindus call prana. It is the very locus of ecstasy, of expansive states of consciousness, of the very essence of self transformation and of intense, wild and wonderful creativity.   Its just that in our unawakened experience that we only see this high level energy as expressed through the orgasm as being the only way to experience such high levels of energy, that we can become biased as to what is or is not possible.  When you awaken, you can open up the floodgates to inspiration.  Ask anyone who has gone through this experience.  I know people who began writing music, writing poetry,  designing clothing, artwork, etc.  In my case it fueled a whole new direction for my business which was a hot glass production studio.  I wrote short stories, children stories, music, poetry, and began a journal that turned into a book several hundred pages later.  It has also helped to illuminate the nature of creativity as being essentially an intimate encounter with the two “opposite” forces within the body, within the self and soul that we call yin and yang.

The elusiveness of the creative state is really not elusive at all once you understand how it works. We have allowed ourselves to become alienated from a fundamental instinct or way of being that is native to who and what we are.  We are operating with only half engines on full.  We can in truth live in a constant state of inspiration as the next dimension of experience unfolds in experience. There is a way  for the creative to flow unhindered. It involves the two seemingly opposite aspects of your being reaching  unity within you.  When these two forces come together, some very interesting thing happen. I have experienced ongoing creative energy flow continuously for years at a time. The nature of creativity means every corner of human endeavor is littered with creativity.  Its not that art is the place where we feel creative, it is that human experience rich and rewarding moments of creativity in every single facet of experience.  We ARE creativity.  It is in our blood bones and nervous system and souls.

When you understand the nature of creativity, it becomes much easier.  To learn more about this, read about it in my upcoming book

Waking The Infinite.

creative resistance

In it, I go into the relationship that both the yin and yang energies have as purely etheric and nonphysical manifestations of cosmic consciousness and how the physical body then is designed to be a perfect biological mechanism for the expression and conveyance of that energy physically.  I also explain how the etheric or pranic current moves through the body and how it intersects with the nervous system, informs it, modifies and enriches it once kundalini is awakened in a more or less conscious way.  I also show how the two brains that we possess themselves are mirrors of this cosmic couple and how we can in a very practical way, learn how to marry them in order to discover that moment when the two explode in that moment of genesis, the moment of inspiration.  I further explain that it is possible to actually LIVE in a constant state of inspiration and what effects or benefits that this has. This is nothing short of learning how to ride a wave of bliss and wonder that these two energetic currents create when the consciousness of the individual is able to focus the energy in the arena of the conscious self.  Learning this is about learning the correct type of balance of feeling necessary to generate the physical chemistry needed to support the etheric or nonphysical state that those who are interested in awakenings seek to do for themselves and for the race as a whole.

These energies are all around us all the time.  They have always been and shall always be.  In awakening we make a lot about how we awakened, that the energy “rose” in us.  What “rose” in truth, was our own awareness of a universe that was, right out of the gate of creation, awake and aware with this vibrant boundless energy.  The truth is, it has the power to change your life tremendously and for the better if you are engaged enough to recognize what it is that seems to stand in the way of your realizing this state.

So creativity will play a role in the book simply because as an artist I recognize that the power of awakening is the same power as the flash of inspiration.  The sad thing is that those (including myself who am a visual artist)  in the arts call it the ” flash” instead of the steady state flow or the dwelling place or something else that would suggest that the experience is continuous.  What do you think the flash of inspiration stretched out into a daily experience would feel like?  How do you think such an experience would change your world?  (the answer, at least for me, is “radically”)  The fact remains, it just isn’t a continuous phenomenon for most people and for many more of those, how to even try doing such a feat seems an utter mystery.  We still are beings that find this part of our experience to be shrouded in cognitive veils.  It need not be.  By learning how to turn this faucet on you can learn how to bring fulfillment in your own life as well as inviting in the force that can dismantle lifetimes of dysfunction and trauma and hurt from your light body.  And if you didn’t know already, the light body records ever single thing that ever happens to you, at least of an energetic and emotional nature.  We are fast realizing that while the brain may be the locus of recording memories, it may in fact be more of a biological switching system for nonlocal as well as locally recorded or imprinted experiences which we call memories.  The realization is fast upon us, though, that the body itself records past emotional impacts, and by learning how to erase those impacts from our energy memory, we actually free up the energy system of the physical and etheric bodies to operate in a way that is far more optimal, efficient, healthy, and clear.  When awakening hits most people, they are bowled over by the experience and are in wonderment over the power of the experience.  And yet, in time, people who learn how to move through their awakenings in a successful and fulfilling way find that this same intensity is itself more a steady-state experience that is the new way of being for humans.  What is on offer for us is a truly incredible way to be and to feel every moment of the day.  To get there is the “work” that so many talk about, which in truth is merely a surrender of those patterns, beliefs, and old feelings that stand in the way of a clearer flow of the cosmic in your seemingly tiny frame here on Gaia…..which is herself a speck in a sea of specks.  And yet, even on the micro-scale, the atomic scale, everything still vibrates with knowing.  This knowing may be beyond science at the moment, but everything in our world is alive.  It may not be what science call sentient life, but it is certainly what the ancients observed is part of a universe that lives and breaths in its own way.  When you consider that energy is conscious, the whole universe, bound together by energetic forces (an atom is mostly energy, not matter), then you can perhaps begin to appreciate the impact that this has.

book blog

After a number of months keeping the book at arm’s length, I have recently gotten back into working on it.  This book, which grew out of a journal I kept to keep up with the changes taking place during my awakening experience, had just a year ago swelled to 700+ pages, which, when “cut” down to the average paperback book size meant I had over 1400 pages!  Three months were spent just chopping the jungle of words so that they were more manageable.   Another few more months were spent after that to re-edit the book where it was finally gotten down to under 300 “cut” pages.  I am now convinced of what friends have said who have seen the book; its really about three books…..except I need to work on the first before a second or even third.

At a certain point an effort like this can become overwhelming.  Toss in a little kundalini and it can get dizzyingly interesting really quick!

I have had a friend who helped me to edit the introduction mention how the beginning just doesn’t have enough juice and form to make it different from other books on the same subject.  As a result, I am now taking a different approach to re-crafting the beginning of the book, which is just what I have been up to the last couple of days. This time, less is more and being able to keep the rewrite and revisions simple and more to the point without losing the magic is pretty important.

The book charts how my own awakening took place.  Unlike what many Hindus and traditionalists have said, I can point directly to what triggered my awakening.  It is interesting, too, since a little-known Christian document that was hidden for over 1600 years which has come to light having to do with awakening mentions the exact same scenario as my own.  The book is written to show just how different an awakening can be; someone who had awakened kundalini over a decade ago who I talked to didn’t even recognize my experience as being kundalini…..and yet this is most definately kundalini!  By being able to bring new information to the fore we will all benefit.  The book will also deal with the issue of the quantum wave and why the left and right hemispheres of the brain are important in harnessing the full power of the universe in our bodies and our consciousness. For those who have not experienced this, my mentioning this might sound a little odd or random, but trust me;  I think we are discovering (at least I have) a way to a VERY different kind of life simply by how we balance the two hemispheres we call the brain!  If that makes no sense, you really need to read the book when it comes out (I will get it out by hook or crook; traditional publishing methods, self publishing, or writing them out as they did in the seventh century).

Since kundalini accelerates experience and phenomenon, its possible to experience a broad range of things in a relatively short period of time. As a result, I have been able to observe  synchronicities enough to bring forth some new information about their nature and how they emerge as phenomenon connected to us even as they seem to be events happening “beyond” our control.

The book will speak to those interested in the topic and who want to work on issues that are central to awakening as well as those who have experienced the stirring of kundalini or awakening itself.  I think its important to begin to have a larger appreciation for and understanding of kundalini and how it affects those who have activated it.  I had a spouse who tolerated my condition but when the symptoms grew stronger, the marriage began to crumble, resulting in a very difficult time for me.  With greater understanding will come more compassion and awareness, which I think is vital for helping to shepherd those individuals who may well help to guide others to a new paradigm and way of being in this age.

WTI Quote

Until you reach the place where you can consider that all of this is being created by you, you will remain a prisoner of sorts in this world.  You will remain a prisoner to those things within you that you have created, what you hold onto even as you may seek to demonize them in others, and just as Philip said in his gospel which was discovered in 1945 in a cave near Nag Hammadi Egypt,  will master you and you shall be its slave.  Until you deal with this inner material, it WILL be projected outward onto others as you believe with utmost certainty that it is the fault of your neighbor, not your own.  If this all sounds crazy, it should be a cautionary tale to all who seek to do “spiritual” work.  In truth, this spiritual work is more about mucking out stalls in a barn; cleansing and clearing our own shit (and “shit” it is!). This projection was what Jung meant when he said “Projections change the world into the replica of one’s own unknown face.” (1)  For those who seek only to focus on the soft perfection of the lotus flower, realize that it blooms out of the muck below….

If you’d like to understand a little more about what Jung has had to say about this issue, you can read about it here:  http://suite101.com/article/what-is-projection-a60383   There is quite a lot written about projection and while it is available throughout the psychotherapy spectrum, the most notable are the likes of Jung and Freud.

Realization is knowing what you are, and you are yourself a creator.  A godling. You are a creator absolutely, and while your range may be limited to creating your own reality right now, this creativity wont always be so locally limited.  You are multidimensional and you exist in many different forms right now “elsewhere.”  The divine spark is in you, all through you,  and here you are seeking to divest yourself of this dross, this ‘spiritual” work, you say.  I know humans have a problem with accepting or even entertaining this possibility, thinking it, most often, as filled with hubris and pride, but it isn’t.  Once you are able to touch upon your soul’s own creative source-point, the font of its inspiration and greater life, you will be struck dumb with reverence and love.  You will.  You CANNOT get to this place without such an awareness, for they are one and the same.  They go together.   It is like someone who asks the advice of an elder “How do I love deeply?”  The elder replies, “With deep love!”  It isn’t that there is something to do, but that it is itself what it is.  When you touch upon your greater creative potential (and you can feel this during moments of inspiration so look for it when it happens) what you feel is this incredible feeling that takes you over that is both the experience and the reflection upon it.  SO this is not some egoistic reflecting in entirety.  Ego always remains, but as one learns how to refine ego and grow it into the higher form within you (using the higher self as a template or mentor or guru within), then there is naturally more room for this much more refined awareness of what you are.  This is what they mean by Self Realization.  It is realizing what you are in your greater context.

All of this dross, though, you have accepted at one point or another.  You may have some sticking point with it, a less than peaceful state with it. For example, being “against” being warlike has produced more warlike behavior in the past than you might imagine.  So-called peace-loving people were themselves just as warlike and passionate about NOT going to war as those who WERE actively engaged in war.   It is one thing to be upset with the way of the world, but another to be so consumed by it that it becomes a preoccupation, something that dips obsession and then, deeper; into madness. This is where the way of the world begins to cloud the way of your own inner world so that the divine pulse, the cosmic ripple, no longer is felt or known half as well as it could have been simply because there is so much more difficult competing material for it to transmit itself through (think the mud that the lotus must move through).

People treat kundalini rising as though it is some great mystery, but how it happens is not a mystery.  What is a mystery is that it remains a mystery to some.  But in this current age, we are learning more than ever with the awakening of many thousands of people all within this one time frame. Once you understand how kundalini awakens, yo do not need a method or system. Quite naturally the guru awakens within you and can guide you if you listen.  You only need one thing and that alone will work if sufficient material has been excavated from the core body of awareness (the light body).  This, though, is not about how kundalini is activated…..

Reaching a place where one accepts the world as it is, not to give bad practices a pass in any way, but to not be moved by what is not necessary to move you.  By choosing always the good, one does not move into the depths of the shadow or negative side of ones self or the world.  One continues to always look into the light without seeking the shadow aspects of anger and revenge and hatred which are so often a facet of spiritual work in the beginning.  So how we choose to respond is how we are.  How we feel is not some great mystery, but is part of how we have chosen to be, to respond, and to become.  We very much seem to want to pass this responsibility off onto others, but it certainly seems it is entirely our own.  And if that unsettles you, then good.  A little unsettling is probably what you need because until you settle into peace with yourself and the world, feather ruffling will be a major indicator of how well or how poorly you have “gotten it.”.

At no point was any belief shoved onto you.  No one held you at gunpoint.  No one made you join the church, or a political group or alignment.  You did all of this in order to conform most likely, to fit in (but you probably did so without reading the fine print first).  If you say you did so under pressure, it was you who bowed to that pressure.  Now of course this gets hard for people who feel they have been victims in one way or another, and this is a very hard thing to deal with because it is so self-reinforcing.  I know.  I have been there.  I was in relationships where the other needed to be the victim so badly that they sought to make me their scapegoat.  This happened a number of times until I realized I had a sense of incompletion with a feeling of guilt from something that spanned back to a life during the Inquisition in Europe.  This has resulted in making me, as my mother said, “a crazy magnet.”  I can say that these people are off their rocker, but the deeper truth is I have attracted them or was attracted to them.  As I look back at these relationship I actually have seen the warning signs and often tended not to heed them.  This is, as Jung said, the power of the shadow self, the part of us that is more esoteric or hidden, submerged.  When you have an awakening, this material can become dislodged, moved, stirred and thus transmuted so that it is no longer an issue and the energetic alignment of the self can more closely mirror that of the soul.

I once had a friend in high school who had an issue with her Dad.  She felt like he didn’t love her.  She went on to have a string of relationships after leaving home that were all the same, and ended the same; she was left by men in rather spectacular ways.  It led her to cease seeking relationships with men.  I can remember her calling me at two in the morning in tears asking me how on earth she had radar for these men who would all treat her the same way?  If you talk to a psychologist, they will simply explain that that which has not been resolved within,  will repeat. We say, though, that in our childhoods that THIS material, we had NO control over.  But I don’t believe that for one second.  What about what is left over from another life?  Does that show up as a condition we have no control over?  Or is the picture bigger even for those who cannot see past the veil of death?  A world of problems are denied because we do not remember.  What we come into this life with is what remains from before.  Perhaps you do not buy into reincarnation, and that’s fine.  I speak and write about it because I have personally had so many experiences with it over the course of my life to indicate to me quite clearly that I was not simply dreaming this up (I have language from a lost culture, for example that was not possible for me to have known for starters).  Of course, however, you alone are the one to decide if this sits right with you.  I am merely offering my own experience.

When my entire family was choosing to join the church when I was small, my choice was not to do so.  I politely declined.  I could have chosen to join the church, yes, and it is possible that years later, in rebellion, I might refuse to accept the ramifications of my actions some years earlier.  But I suppose I could have gone for the argument that I was not responsible for my beliefs and feelings and actions and thus was manipulated by forces around me.  For a creator, this is the weakest point for all of us.  But the idea of ourselves not being responsible and more in control is a seductive one. Until you are ready to give it up, though, you cannot begin to see how its possible that all of this started with you and will end with you.  You wont begin to glimpse the universe until you recognize the material that serves to separate your perception from it.  Much of this has to do with beliefs held at a deep level within the psyche.

Every belief was taken on by you.  The life you lead today was chosen by you.  You chose your parents, you came into this world looking down on the vast river of time and we each knew the circumstances of our entry into this world.  God didn’t just toss us into the river and said “Now swim, you heathen!”  No, it isn’t like that.  Neither did some God create karma as a form of punishment, either.  Humans seek to turn these things into punishments when their purpose is far more nuanced and refined.  it is when we forget our divine heritage and natures that we fell away and created karmic entanglements.

When I was a baby my earliest memory was one where I was not yet in the flesh.  I was getting ready to incarnate, though, and I was attracted to a particular couple who would later become my mother and father.  In the pinewoods of Florida, I gazed down from the very tip-tops of the pine trees to them on a rare moment when they were alone.  I felt a pull, a draw to them.  I had known them, both of them,  many times.  My father, who would not be present much longer in the world, I had known a very long time.  We were like brothers.  But what I did not realize or see immediately was how the karma mirrored itself in me and me in it.  That is a way of saying that I was attracted to the unrefined vibration as much as the finer one, not just one or the other. Thus attracted, I was drawn into the world, through the womb of my mother, taking both the good and the bad all as one.  The things I had to work on would find their compliment perfectly in the events and people I chose to be with.  What’s more, my own siblings would also mirror many of the same issues even as we each varied slightly one to the other.  The same struggle I went through five years ago is the same or very similar struggle that a sibling went through just a few years after my own. The result in each case was a surrender and softening of the self.  The walls came down, the defensiveness melted away.  For her and for me, there could not have been a better landscape in which to be tried, tested, our buttons pushed and pressed until there were no more buttons left to press.

I knew growing up that I would not have been the person I was had things gone differently.  Perhaps I needed to learn greater self reliance.  Perhaps had my father remained, I might not have learned this in the way I have.  And, too, missing him may have also been the very means by which I could glimpse the infinite and realize that his absence has been illusory.  In truth, his spirit has been residing next to my own since I was young.  Perhaps not in flesh, but in that very fine vibration of knowing and being that has the capacity to live beyond this holographic creation we are all experiencing just now.  If we create it, then we can recreate it differently.  What might we create were we able to consider how things could be different?

They say that life here is an illusion.  I beg to differ.  It is not illusion.  The world here is a creation.  Knowing this, you can then see it differently because the word suggests a choice and the possibility for change.  We can create our lives differently.  Illusion suggests to me that what is must somehow be cast aside.   It is less something to cast aside as to change, to reform, to recreate because if you have ever observed what happens as you are actively in the process of changing your beliefs, the world will move in around you in a new way.  It is like a stick in the mud.  The belief that is being plucked is that stick.  When you pull it out, the mud and water swirls around the hole and in matter of seconds there is no evidence of there every having been a stick there in the first place.  All of the events of the world that were being effected by that stick or belief are now operating differently now.  I know that each and every change within myself has resulted in a sudden and often dramatic change in the events happening around me. Since so much of this has happened over the last few years I have actually been able to observe carefully as these healings take place and see the changes in the world around me. the world is being created differently, you see.  You can literally watch as events change their character on a dime in direct relation to whatever the healed pat embodies in you.  For me, when I healed a self-worth issue in my heart center, it resulted in someone doubling the monetary amount of an offer they had made on my house the next day.  Because I could not feel better self worth, I attracted others who could not give me what my home or what my own being was worth.  How could they do otherwise?  But once the energy changed, it was possible for not just me to change but others. In this case, it was dramatic.  I had not had contact with the person who made the offer for six months.  The location in time of the new offer was entirely coincident with the healing that took place. But this is one example and this is entirely emblematic of how things have gone for me over the years.  If I am involved in a project and heal something in me, the very nature of the project will change including the reactions and actions of others around me.  I jokingly described it as suddenly shifting into another world where things work a little bit differently.

It is this way because we are creating all of it.  You may not create the people within it or the trees or the dirt, but you certainly do create the events.  And in knowing that, how is it that anyone can continue turning a blind eye to the stuff of their life in the hopes that it will simply go away as if by magic?  The magic, dear friend, is in your capacity to simply let it all go. When you are ready, it will fall away the same way that an old coat drops to the floor and is never seen from again.  But until you are ready, you are engaged in what the ego needs, which is “the work.”  I write a lot about this here and on other blogs.  The idea of work is itself a bit out of place because in truth healing from the past has been the easiest thing I have done.  Its getting myself READY to be ready that has been “the work.”  That is not work, though.  What IS work is refining the self and making the right choices each and every day until an epiphany moment turns into practice or habit, habit matures into character.  The small earthbound self is like this tender bud on a larger tree.  It is young and has a lot to learn from its larger and older aspects. So as you become more realized, you can let your higher self filter in and serve as that template for your own inner work of becoming. You literally let in the self that is unbound by time and thus already realized, to step into the moment with you.  How aware will you be of this part of yourself depends on you.  Most often, though, this happens slowly, day by day as the spark of healing turns to the glow of daily practice, and that itself turns , as I mentioned earlier, into character over time.

In spiritual work we have the capacity to glimpse very tall mountains that we have not yet scaled.  This would be being able to reach incredible states of bliss and surrender with the divine, but just as we glimpse the mountain without having climbed it, so too is our surrender and experience of the sublime limited and transitory.  We visit.  We visit until we learn how to edge out the rest of our own crap so that the sublime can reside always (and it can and does!).  Being able to discern between being there on that mountain top and merely seeing it ahead are two different things.  Seeing it, I contend, is an important aspect in our ability to realize larger summits, which naturally draws us towards them when we are ready.  We might see the mountain, esteem its beauty and character and want to BE a part of it, but until we have actually learn to scale it (by creating differently) we will remain visitors to it through our visionary impulses (see how these things are neither just good or just bad, but a combination of both shadow and light?) Scaling the higher mountain builds strength of will and character.  This seems to be the work.  Much of what lies before us here is simply divesting ourselves of the dross of the ages and this, in truth, is incredibly easy.

I was doing a show two weeks ago and while there I met a woman and her husband and we struck up a conversation about energy work.  The lady explained that what she did was to remove blocks from people.  What I realized what she was doing was what many people do when seeking to heal themselves of the past.  We tell ourselves that we have to “work” on these tough spots, but in truth, what I have found, is that it is as easy or as hard as we choose to make it.  Why?  It is itself a creation.  I do think that the very ACT of trying to heal ourselves is itself a creative act.  As a result, we have complete free will in decided how easy or hard the healing can be, how hard the work can be.  Most people who are stuck in the victim meme wont be able to see this for what it is, but I promise you, it is as we make it.

So that s-load of crap in the back yard of your own being…..either it can go away with a snap or it is going to take a bunch of workmen and trucks and shovels to get it out.  They might have to even bring in a helicopter.  Do you get what I am trying to paint here?  This is spiritual work, I am talking about.  It only gets easy when you consider “This could be so easy it is like snapping your fingers and it is gone.” And it can be.  When I have considered that someone waving their hand over my abdomen could entirely clear away a blockage I had been struggling with for years (years!!!) could just go away, poof!  Just like that!  That was when it went away, poof, just LIKE that.  And it never returned.  I turned to my friend who did the energy work and wondered how it was it could be that easy.  It is because I had been creating it.  All of it.  Even how HARD all of this was supposed to be.  I considered in that moment of her hand waiving that it could be gone.  And it was.

How many times have your heard someone say “You made me upset” or “you made me so mad!’  And in truth, no one MAKES you do anything!  You CHOSE to get upset.  You CHOSE to get mad. Be honest with yourself and stop putting it off onto others.  If you do, you will quickly see just how much of all of this you are in truth creating.  All I am saying is that you CAN choose to create something differently.  Someone says “Yes, I am trying!  But this is hard!”  To this I say that if you want to create it to be hard, then it will be, but if you change your beliefs about it and you make the change REAL (not just a mental construct), then it will come to be.

As long as you think that your beliefs are not your own, as long as you believe that you were tossed willy-nilly into the world to meet the events that you did, then you will remain powerless to change those events.  But once you consider there is a different way to actually look at them and experience and feel them, then they will.  You can be powerless or you can be powerful.  Sometimes the difference between these two is merely resolving some issue you have about how you associate the USE or ABUSE of power that keeps you from embracing the fullest and highest possibility open to you.  Once you resolve the glitch or hitch in you, the cycle is open to let the energy flow from inception to birthing this new way of seeing and being.

freemasons-3-1I am not altogether sure that dealing in prophecy is a good thing.  Because of its very nature it can lead to wild speculation and lead one further from the truth rather than towards it.  We inject all sorts of our own material into it and come up with something that may never have been intended.  Unless prophecy is literal, and most isn’t, it becomes very hard to impiricaly say that a prophecy is a prophecy.  I know because I have had very clear and very direct precognitive dreams my whole life and the simple truth of the matter is that you do not and cannot know WHEN the event is going to take place, let alone that is itself precognitive or prophetic in some way.  If you think about it, you can realize that in the case of a dream, you would need to somehow KNOW that a given sequence is precognitive and THEN be able to know WHEN its going to take place. In order to do this, you would need something akin to a newspaper in the dream or experience that would give you an idea as to the time and place (which is what I am driving at here; context).  When your context is different from, say an event in the future, are you really going to see it for what it is?   When you believe that someone is beaming weird thoughts or images to you then all you can see in the world are things just like this.  When you fear being stalked, you see stalkers everywhere.  If you have an issue with authority, you see problems with it everywhere.  What lens, then, does a person from one century have in common with those from another century?  How can we be prophetic and KNOW when a given moment experienced thousands of years before or even last week is the very moment that was foretold?  You see, the very best prophecies are those that tend to capture the sweep and less of the specifics.  Capture the tide of the times and not the details of the times.  Okay, so maybe you get the idea a little.

Knight John was a man who was a crusader in Jerusalem and penned a series of prophecies that have gotten the attention of some people, partly for how what he said over a thousand years ago seems to fit so perfectly into what is happening today.  In a previous post some time ago, I included an excerpt of his prophecies that dealt with a new age that heralded the coming of the Feminine into the world in a way that seems like it may just be down the road…..a road that we are currently on.  Do the words of this knight have something to tell us?

Who is this Knight John? 

According to the publisher he is also called Jean de Vézelay or Jean de Mareuil, a crusader who participated in the conquest of Jerusalem in 1099.  John was born in Burgundy in 1042 AD. and was raised on the Camino de Santiago and became a monk and and later a knight, he would have gone on in the Holy Land of the First Crusade to regain Jerusalem from the Turks, who had seized twenty years earlier. He would have penned the prophecy during this time, knowing Hugues de Payens, with whom he had founded the Order of the Temple or the Templars. He died in Jerusalem around 1119 – 1120 AD. J.C.


Shortly before his death, John of Jerusalem wrote seven copies of his book of prophecies. He gave three written copies to Bernard of Clairvaux (Saint Bernard), who  donated one to the monastery of Vézelay.  According to the preface of the book, the prophecies of John of Jerusalem is actually two books. One is a manuscript from the 15th century and is a commentary on the prophecies (in an effort we assume to help illuminate them for the reader-this material has been omitted from the work which is included here). The manuscript was discovered in 1992 in Zagorsk Russia at the monastery of the Holy Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, by a professor named Galvieski.  An original copy of the prophecies were kept by the KGB archives in Lubyanka. It was then later transferred to the Library of the Jewish community in Warsaw, captured by the Germans in 1941, and was recovered by the Russians during the fall of Berlin in 1945.  (1)

My sense has been that reading prophecy is problematic for the fact that the person writing is doing so through his or her own lens of the past.  They can only understand it through their own context. In many cases, they are FEELING it more than just seeing it.  They are getting a CURRENT of information and it may not always be delivered in a literal visual way.  As a result, it is all interpretation.  This does not mean that it cannot be understood, but it is much more likely that most prophecy wont be known for what it is until the moment that it comes to pass, if then.  As a result, it best serves, to my mind, as a kind of guidepost, but nothing to tether your camel to. Such things as this can also stir fear and uncertainty, so on the one hand I hesitate, and yet, also, by realizing that in all time, there has never been an end to any time, only events that serve to create the appearance of cycles and periods, but no true “end times” I think that this is an important thing to bear in mind when reading any sort of prophecy.  I think that the worst thing done for us has been the invention of the idea of “End Times.”  This is itself untrue, for all time expands into a larger understanding of itself and as humans begin to grasp the true nature of time and how incredibly organic it is, then perhaps we can realize that all any prophecy can seek to do is to glimpse something through a lens.  Sometimes it is seen brilliantly and clearly, and sometimes darkly and with less comprehension.

The best prophecy to my mind helps you to come back to your own present time to consider the lessons of the past as well as the possible futures ahead.

The rest is Knight John…


Protocol secret prophecies

John of Jerusalem – 1099

I see and know.
My eyes find in heaven what will and I passed the time with a single step.
A hand to guide me what you see or do not know.
A thousand years have passed and Jerusalem will never be the Crusader city of Christ.
The sand will be buried in his grain walls of our castles, our armor and our bones. It has stifled our voices and prayers.
Christians from afar as pilgrims where their law and their faith were not dare to approach the tomb and relics qu’escortés by Knights Jews who here (…) and their Kingdom Hall.
Infidels are an innumerable crowd spread everywhere
and faith resonate like a drum across the Earth.
I see the huge earth.
Continents named Herodotus in his dreams will be added beyond the great forests which Tacitus, and away after endless seas begin after the Pillars of Hercules.
A thousand years have passed since the time we live and strongholds will have all gathered in great kingdoms and vast empires.
Wars as numerous as the meshes of the coat worn by the Knights of the Order will be crossed, defeating kingdoms and empires, weaving others.
And serfs, the peasants, the poor will not fire a thousand times revolted, burning crops, castles and cities, until they are skinned alive and being forced survivors to return to their dens.
They are raw Kings.
A thousand years have passed and the man has earned the seabed and the heavens
and it will be like a star in the firmament.
It has acquired the power of the sun and it will be taken for God,
Building on the huge earth thousand towers of Babel.
It will be built on the ruins of the walls of those that had raised the emperors of Rome, and they will separate again Legions Barbarians and Tribes.
Beyond the great forests will be an empire.
When the walls will collapse the Empire no longer a muddy water.
The people will once again be involved.
Then begin the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand.
I see and I know what it will be.
I am the scribe.
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand Man will be at the mouth of a shadow of a dark labyrinth.
And I see the bottom of this night in which he will press the red eyes of the Minotaur.
Beware his cruel wrath, you who will live the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand.

The Gold is in the Blood
Look at the stars who will count the money
Will enter the Temple will meet merchants

And the children’s children become the pyroclastic
They will throw the old banners

And life will become Apocalypse every day

Everyone try to enjoy everything it can
Man divorces his wife many times he will marry
And the woman go through the lost paths (hollow) taking that which pleases
Mothering without giving the name of the Father

And each of the others will only
The tradition will be lost
The law will be forgotten
As if the Ad was not made and the man will return to wild

6
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The father takes his pleasure with her daughter
The man with the man’s wife with the woman
The old with the prepubertal child

The body rots host all the earth
Faces are eaten the emaciated limbs
Love will be high threat to those who do not know that the flesh

7
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Whoever speaks Oath and Law
Will not be heard
Anyone who preach the Faith of Christ
Lose its voice in the wilderness
But everywhere spread the mighty waters of the infidels religions
False messiahs will gather the blind men
And the unfaithful will be armed as he was never
He will speak of justice and law and faith will be burning and cutting
He will avenge the Crusade

8
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The sound of death given as the storm roll on earth
The barbarians are mixed with the soldiers of the last legion
The infidels living in the heart of the Holy Cities

The hatred will spread like fire in dry forest
The barbaric massacre soldiers
Slay the unbelievers believers
The savagery will each and every and cities perish

9

Men will judge them according to their blood and their faith
No one will listen to the heart with children
They identify for as nestlings
And nobody will protect them from the hand stiffened gauntlet

The houses will be destroyed or stolen
Some take the place of other
Everyone close your eyes not to see women raped

10
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Everyone will know what is in all places of the earth
We see children whose bones break through the skin
And one whose eyes are covered with flies
And that which hunts like a rat

For he will care that it
This one will give a handful of grains as alms
While he sleeps on bags full
And it will give with one hand he will take the other

11
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man will all merchandise
Everything has its price
The water tree and the animal
Nothing will really set and everything will be sold
But then the man will be more than meat weight
Barters his body was like a piece of meat
We take his eye and heart
Nothing is sacred or his life or his soul
We play his body and blood as a carcass skinning

1 2
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man has changed the face of the earth
He wants the Master and Ruler of forests and herds
It has dug the ground and sky
And traced its path in the rivers and seas

But the earth will be naked and barren
The air becomes hot and the water is foul
Life fade for man deplete the world’s wealth
And man is only as a wolf
To hate him

13
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The child will also be sold
Some will use it as a quintain
To enjoy his new look
Others treat it as a servile animal
The sacred weakness will be forgotten child
And mystery
It will be like a foal that stands
Like a lamb being slaughtered bleeding
And the man will be nothing more than barbarism

14
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The eyes and minds of men will be prisoners
They are drunk and ignore
They take the images and reflections for the truth of the world
It will make them what is actually a sheep
While predators will

And set them against each other
They flay to get their wool and skin
And if he survives man will be stripped of his soul

15
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Reign of the Sovereign without belief
They will order the innocent human crowds and passive
They hide their faces and keep their names secret
And castles will be lost in the forest
But they decide the fate of any and all
No part in the meetings of their order
Everyone will be true serf and freeman believe Knight
Will rise only those wild and sometimes heretical cities
But they will first be conquered and burned alive

16
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Men will be so many lands
They look like an anthill in which the stick is pressed
They grouilleront and death will crush heel
Like insects distraught
Large movements push them from one country to another
Brown skins will mingle with white skins
The Faith of Christ to that of the Infidel
Some preach the sworn peace
But all this will be the war of enemy tribes

17
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Men want to cross all pregnant
The mother will have gray hair of an old
The way of nature is abandoned
And families will be separate grains that nothing can unite
This will be another world
Each wander arm as a runaway horse
Going in all directions without a guide
Woe to the knight who will ride this horse
It will no bracket and drop in the gap

18
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The men will rely more on God’s law
But want to guide their life as a mount
They want to choose their children in the womb of their women
And kill those they do not like
But will the man and take to God?
The Mighty will seize the best land and the most beautiful women
The poor and the weak are livestock
Each hut will keep
Fear in every heart will be like a poison

19
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
A black and secret order has arisen
His law will be the weapon of hatred and poison
It will always want more gold and expand his rule over all the earth
And his servants will be linked by a kiss of blood
Righteous men and the weak suffer his rule
The Mighty will start its service
The only law that will dictate that in the shadows
It will sell the poison into churches
And the world will work with the scorpion in his heel

20
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Many men will sit idly
Or go without knowing where the empty eyes
Because they will no longer fight forge where the metal
And more scope to grow
They will be like a seed that can take root
Stray and humiliated poor and desperate
The youngest and oldest places often without
They will have the war for salvation
And they will fight themselves first and they hate their lives

21
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Diseases of the water from the sky and the Earth
Hit man and threaten
He wants to revive what was destroyed and protect what remains
He will fear coming days
But it will be too late

It will drip some days taking everything like a flood
And she missed the next day the earth
And the air will eat the body lower

22
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Earth quake in several places and cities will crumble
Everything we built will not listen to the wise
Be threatened and destroyed
Mud submerge villages and the ground opens beneath the Palace
The man obstinately because pride is his folly
He did not hear the repeated warning of the earth
But the fire will destroy the new Rome
And rubble accumulated
The poor and the barbarians will plunder, despite the legions abandoned wealth

23
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The sun will burn the earth
The Air will be the veil that protects the fire
There will be a curtain holes
And the burning light will eat the skin and eyes
The sea will rise as a boiling water
Cities and shores are buried
And entire continents disappear
The men took refuge in the hills
And they rebuild already forgetting what happened

24
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
People are prepared to live mirages
The senses are deceived and touch what they believe is not
They follow paths that only the eyes will
And the dream may well come alive
But the man will know more separate what is from what is not
He lost in labyrinths of false
Those who will give rise to mirages
Will play the naive man by deceiving
And many men become rampant dogs

25
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The animals Noah had embarked on his ark
Will no longer be in the hands of man
Animals that transformed according to his will
And who will care about their living suffering?
The man has made of each case it will be required
And he will destroy in countless
What will become the man who changed the laws of life
Which has made the animal living a lump of clay
Will it equal to God or the child of the devil?

26
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
It will be afraid to child rights
Poison and despair will watch
We will not desired for itself and not for him or the world
It is hunted for fun and sometimes you will sell his body
But even those who will be protected by his own
Is threatened to have the dead spirit
He will live in the game and the mirage
Who will guide since there will be more teacher
Nobody has taught him to hope and act

27
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The man believe God when he is nothing more than birth
He hit always defeated by anger and jealousy
But his arm will be armed with the power it will have seized
Prometheus and blinded he can destroy everything around him
It will dwarf the soul and he will have the strength of a giant
There will move a huge step, but it will ignore what path to take
His head is heavy to know
But he does not know why he lives and dies
It will always be the fool who gesticulates or child whines

28
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Whole countries will fall prey to war
Beyond the Roman Limes and even on the former territory of the Empire
Men in the same cities were slay
Here is the war between tribes and there among believers
The Jews and the children of God will not cease to oppose
And the earth Christ will be their battlefield
But the infidels everywhere want to defend the purity of their faith
And there will be in front of them that doubt and power
Then death shall go everywhere as the standard of a new era

29
When start the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Many men will be excluded from human life
They will have no rights or roof bread
They are naked and have their bodies for sale
We further reject the towers of Babel opulence

They listen to the preaching of revenge
And they launch an assault on proud towers
The time will be income of the barbarian invasions

The man will be entered into the dark labyrinth
It will be afraid and close your eyes because it will see more
It will challenge any and fear at every step
But it will be pushed forward because no stop will be permitted
The voice of Cassandra is yet high and strong

Because it will always want to have more and his head will be lost in the mirage
Those who are his masters deceive the
And there will be only bad shepherds
When it’s full of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand

Men have finally opened my eyes
They will no longer be locked in their heads and in their cities
They will see and hear from one point to another of the earth

Each of which is a fraction
And they together constitute the heart
And finally there will be a language that is spoken by all
And finally born and the great human

And sail on this brilliant nave

Their bodies will be new and they will fish
And some will fly high above the birds

And dreams will be shared
And they live as long as the older men
He is talking about the Holy Books

And children know the earth and the sky than any before them
And the human body will be expanded and skilled
And his spirit will enveloped all things and be owned

35

Man will find the way men
And the earth will be ordered

37

And it will be wise thinking of tomorrow

38

Shall be as an unresolved
We know everything about the world and body
We heal the disease before it appears
Each healer will self and others

And the man after closing time and greed
Open his heart and his purse to the poor
It will feel a knight of the human order
And so it will be a new start time

39
When it’s full of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
Man has learned to give and share
The bitter days of solitude will be buried
He will believe again in the Spirit
And the barbarians have acquired citizenship
But that will come after the wars and fires
That arise blackened rubble of the towers of Babel
And he took the train grip
That is ordered chaos
And that man finds the right path

40
When it’s full of the Year Thousand that comes after Year Thousand
The man knows that all human beings are bearers of light
And they are creatures to meet
It has built new cities
In heaven on earth and the sea

It will have the memory of what was
And he will read what will
There will be more afraid of his own death
As it will in his life lived several lives
Light and he will never be extinguished.
