The Landscape of Resonance in the Risen text


A spectacular Injun Summer's day, even with the high humidity. Perfect sunshine and breezes, and clusters of dragonflies sailing about the field looking for insects. I took a break from the report on the sittings I attended a few weeks ago - almost done! - and pondered further on a park bench near the water about how to present a particular and peculiar aspect of our book, The Risen.  I had been wondering for a few years about when someone would eventually discover this, and it turned out to be my friend Noveh, and we discussed it on our flight to Buffalo en route to Lily Dale.

The peculiar aspect Noveh noticed centered on a particular paragraph, although there were many others, which she said seemed to literally and physically project out from the page surface, as if three-dimensional. I had also noticed this phenomenon which reminded me of a raised relief topographical map, such as geologists use—but then I know how to look, having been so intimately involved with the material from the beginning.  It was clear, at least to us, that we were seeing this "landscape" from some kind of spiritual sensing perspective, perhaps clairvoyantly. The specific paragraph we examined was from Chapter 21: Krishnamurti Speaks, and was the "finale" of some material channeled by Krishnamurti, whose state of existence at this point is best described as "beyond Risen". Here is the paragraph:

“However, can one sit for awhile at this cliff’s edge of what was formerly thought of as the known and listen to the cries of fear, perhaps even rage, that sound all around and within the self? As these cries fade, like echoes at the edge of a great chasm, there is a silence that arises, unknown in the world of thoughts, beliefs, behavior, or time. Sitting in choiceless awareness, without thought or belief, without primal emotion, all sense of direction and time are now drawn into this awareness. One may seemingly and endlessly think about continuing on past the edge of the abyss into the unknown."
Noveh was able to point out to me specifically where she saw the rising and falling of shapes, even movement, within the text above. She could even see how several specific words set next to each other formed some kind of linking that evoked other words and feelings in her own presence.  She also mentioned that some kind of "light structures", sparkles or shards, emitted from certain points of the topography. Although the effect that I'm speaking about most likely will not be evident here in an online document,  perhaps there may be. I would encourage anyone with a hard copy of the book to see for themselves. 

I am reminded of experiments that make the vibrations of sound visible as simple and complex geometric shapes on a surface covered with a fine substance, such as this once which reveals the beauties of resonance:



Regarding the Risen text — we have mentioned several times in and outside the book, and in different ways that every page, paragraph, sentence, and word—including the very placement of each—was chosen and then exquisitely constructed (or orchestrated) by the Risen to evoke specific emotionally-charged Risen ideas in the reader. So it could be said that the book is a collection of "landscapes" that contain far more data than a 2D surface could express; we also refer to this as an infosphere. We also use the term "geography" when referring to other dimensional states of mind and spirit. For me, it's especially gratifying that someone finally noticed! The Risen say that the book was constructed in such ways as to change and raise the vibration of the reader, provided one starts at the beginning and goes forward page by page to the end, and not skip randomly.

See how conceptual artist Lisa Park uses a certain technology to transmit her brain waves and eye activity into data that vibrates in various patterns on the surface of water:



This artist is drawing on emotions of memory and experience. In like manner, readers of The Risen will also affect the content of the Risen text by their own emotional memories and experiences. In turn, this sets up very particular resonances that creates openness and openings to higher-vibrating localities, as well as attracting like vibrations from spirit entities and other influences in informational and inspirational ways.

The more a reader is "in tune" with the material, the more they will "hear" .... the less they are in tune, or especially if reading with a closed or even hostile mind, the less they will discern. Such individuals will also struggle with their ego-mind if it is threatened by the material's insistence of awakening Authentic Self.

So in a very real way, our book is a geography of  many layers, with many portals. Most people start at the top layer, and may feel they've accessed layers beneath it, and then feel urged to go on even deeper. Others can't get past the first level. As we say so often in the book:  "worlds within worlds." Now you know more about what we mean. This book could easily occupy the right reader for many years, as it will me.




Eldon Taylor's Breaking Limitations



And now a few words about my friend and colleague, Eldon Taylor -- I've had the honor of appearing twice on his  radio show, "Provocative Enlightenment" at Hay House.  Other guests I share this honor with are George Noory, (whose show C2C I was also on), James Van Praagh, Giorgio Tsoukalos, Linda Evans, and Lindsay Wagner. His interviews with me were intelligent and sensitive, and the others I've listened to are always very insightful, compelling and fascinating. So I'm glad to share about his free telecourse, entitled Breaking Limitations, that is being hosted by Eldon Taylor. He is a NY Times best-selling author who is considered by many  to be one of the world's experts on pre-conscious processing. I've seen where he's sometimes referred to as The Mind Master!

Eldon has an awesome  line up of guests on the schedule, including Marci Shimoff, Joan Borysenko, Bruce Lipton, Gary Renard, Lynne McTaggart and many more. (You can see the full line-up of guests here). 

Eldon asked me to pass this along to those who might read my blog:
"This is not just another tele-seminar series, with a host of random interviews all strung together in some kind of intensive that leaves you feeling inspired but with very few real tools to put into practice. No—in Breaking Limitations, I am focusing solely on the question of "How did I get here and how do I get where I want to be?" For most of us, the reality of where we are rarely ever lives up to the dreams we once had. I will be asking all of his guests for their insights and unique perspectives on this question. So whether you are interested in business success, personal relationships, health and wellness or just being happier, this course will show you both the problems and the solutions! In fact, in every interview you will receive specific tips to put into practice right away—tips that will put you firmly back into the driver's seat of your life."


Breaking Limitations begins on September 23rd and will air on Mondays and Thursdays from 11am to 1pm pst (2 to 4pm est) and, as I said, this tele-course is totally free of charge. You can listen online and can even hear the replays for a limited time. To find out more and to register for the  telecourse, please click here

Shivering


I just spent a lovely couple hours getting some afternoon sun in the field next to my home, at the foot of the primeval forest. Watching the multitude of dragonflies from the nearby salt marsh flitting about, I was immediately reminded of the spirit lights at the seance. The Universe is abundant with nothing but life! Today is one of those exquisitely perfect blue-sky September days, with not a cloud .... breezy and warm, calm and peaceful. But since 2001, if a New Yorker hears or says this about a September day, you can be sure they are shivering. And so in spite of the warmth and beauty today, I am shivering as I write this.

A Little Nip in the Air


A quick report on my last sitting with Kai Muegge last night in NJ - watch for the complete mini-novel .... I mean report ... to appear not too far in the future.

All the experiments unfolded and were successful as with the other sittings, including ectoplasm (although not as long or as copious as the Cassadaga sittings). However, it appeared that where the touchings and spirit lights were concerned, I was an open target. I was pushed, pulled, caressed, poked and had my first spirit titty-twister, the last by one of the spirit lights! Not only were the touches caused by unseen hands, but also by the lights, which turned out to be able to manifest as solid, boinking off my face, shoulder and hands. At one point, a bright little yellow light flew up to me and, as if with two fingers, grabbed my thumb and gently pulled for a couple seconds. Then another light came up to my chest, grabbed my right nipple, and yikes!

And yes, I liked it.

Someone in the circle commented that it looked as if a swarm of fireflies were dive-bombing me; I felt a little guilty because most of the other sitters were hardly touched or paid attention by the lights. However,the sitters directly on my left and right got a fair amount of the same, and the 3 of us couldn't stop crying out and laughing.The lights were whizzing by so fast that we could feel the wind from their jet-streams!

When the illuminated trumpet finally levitated, it circled the room in dizzying swoops and swirls, each time coming closer to the sitter to my right. Each time, the trumpet would thump him on the head, but then began going for his face, and while he wasn't hurt, sounded a little concerned that someone's eye was gonna get poked out. Then the trumpet turned on me in a way I can only describe as beating the crap out of me; I thought I was going to fall on the floor from laughing so hard, but I couldn't, nor could I break the hand chain to defend myself. Just when I thought it was going too far, the trumpet slowly and carefully descended onto my lap, where it seemed to thoughtfully rest for the remainder of the experiment.

I'm pretty sure this was all due to Tim, but he's remaining silent on the matter.
