Clif High predicts that by October 28th we will have experienced and event that will, forever, change our perspective. That should be interesting. Anyone have any ideas on what that event might be? I have a few ideas….If you aren’t signed up with choice times please do. Sign in so you can post a comment…..
Today is Yom Kippur….the holiest day of The Jewish Spiritual Map. It is called the day of atonement. It is the day that the opponent has the day off.
Throughout the past year I have attempted to “document” the map of The Torah. As I have said many times, I believe understanding the Torah is essential not just for the Jew but also for the Christian.
In this video the Rabbi provides insight into the meaning and reason of the day and do so while integrating the role of Jesus.
Roger Waters is someone who has had a significant influence in my life. For those of you who don’t know who Roger Waters is …… He was the the lead singer for the band Pink Floyd. Pink Floyd is, arguably, the best Rock Band ever. Roger broke up from the band in the 80’s and went solo. He produced an epic and prophetic album yin 1990 called “Amused To Death.” It was a message to the world about how the human race has “amused itself to death.” I just came across a recent interview I thought you would enjoy………
There are so many good songs on the album. Go to YouTube and search for Roger Waters Amused to Death Album if you wish to check it out….
Today….right now…..it is the new moon of the month of Elul. It is the start of what is called the 40 days of Teshuvah.
I was 22 years of age when I was introduced to God. I was at one of my lowest points in my life; Confused, Lost, Feeling Hopeless and Helpless.
Someone took me aside and took me outside on a beautiful November day in New York. It was warm for November, the sun was shining and the last leaves on the trees were ready to fall. This person asked me if I “believed” in God. I said I was not sure. I told him I wanted to but I had no clue. He pointed out to me how everything around us was in perfect harmony and for a brief moment I saw it! It was a fleeting moment but I saw it and I felt it and I knew it. I saw the creative intelligence behind everything…….even my suffering.
Well…..since that time, I have been on a journey seeking this creative intelligence for answers and for direction. It has certainly been a roller coaster ride and a lot of the time I seemed to live in the world of forgetfulness.
Today, I am turning back. Today, I am re-turning to this “Force of Creativity.” The King is in the Field……..
For those of you who engage with The Way Seekers Group in our Final Phase Inquiry Please Read this……..
The final 5th phase in the process. STOP. I use the word final but that is not an accurate description. Yet, it does awaken us to the opportunity that there is, in fact, a destination, an ending, or at least, a “Way Point.”
As your guide, I think we need a field manual to traverse the territory we find ourselves in the this phase.
I think a lot of people skip over this step in their journey. The territory in the first four phases is unfolding. However, in this phase it is done, complete, over, full………It is the “product” of all our inquiry. This phase is qualitatively different. Movement STOPS. We are “moving into stillness here.”
If you “get” the subject-object analogy we have discussed in the past then you understand that in Phases 1-4 we are immersed as subject and now, in phase 5, we turn subject into object; We become the witness and are able to “view” all that has preceded from a higher point from when we started.
So, what is a field manual. I did some research on finding a purpose/meaning and I got this:
The field manual is a set of simple instructions that enables us to take extreme ownership even in the most extreme, chaotic, and unpredictable situations. It allows us to confront our personal landmines and avoid ambushes challenging our mission.
The field manual effectively, bullet points what we have learned so far and a to do list of to do’s for when we choose to cycle forward into our next “Phase 1 ” experience. REMEMBER, one of the descriptions of phase one is that it is called CONFUSION: CHAOS
You have heard of the saying…….”Order out of Chaos. ” Prepositions matter!.. I suggest looking at the situation differently. I suggest we look at it as finding “Order in the Chaos.” It is different attitude altogether. Instead of the goal being to turn chaos into order we accept that both are present and will remain present.
A field manual kind of implies military…..right? WAR! BATTLE.
There are 3 Levels of WAR. These 3 levels mirror loosely the three levels of wisdom according to the Buddha. The Three levels are TACTICAL, OPERATIONAL and STRATEGIC. Can you see the metaphor?
In this phase……July 19, 2021 until the end of September 2021 I will be working on developing and publishing this Field Manual.
