Today marks one month since the passing of a lady whom I consider to have been one of the greatest minds of our time… and yet, to the vast majority of humanity she is relatively unknown. Known as DM Murdoch or Acharya S, she drew equal acclaim from both noted scientists as well as scholars of religion. She was respected as not only being an avid researcher but also one who could remain objective. It was she who began a paradigm, which quickly took flight among those exposed to her work, that she referred to as The Mythicist Position. (The link above has a direct link to her short Youtube presentation on this.) Essentially, she postulates that at opposite poles we have theism and then atheism. She suggests that, based on her extensive research, these two extremes are not the only options, when it comes to our personal truth about how we view myth and religion. DM Murdoch not only left behind an extensive array of accumulated knowledge, but a hugely positive impact on all who were acquainted with her integrity and objectivity.
To anybody who is somewhat acquainted with Universal Principles, The Mythicist Position is excellent reinforcement for validity of The Principle of Polarity. The central text for Hermetic philosophy, known as The Kybalion, describes this extremely important principle like this:
“Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature but different in degrees; extremes meet; all truths are but half truths; all paradoxes can be reconciled.”
Consider also, when it comes to establishing what happened at a crime scene and there are two witnesses, with varying “truths”, most police will tell you that the real truth is somewhere in the middle. We also have a much more personal example of this, which includes acknowledgement of our “dark side”. How often have you been told to essentially flee from that part of you, equating that part of you somehow to evil? Many gurus will reinforce that we must always resonate in love and light and shun that part of us that evokes, through its actions/desires, low vibration emotions. Rajie Kabli penned an excellent article – which is well worth the read – on how to actually embrace that “dark” part of us. It is important to consider that our shadow self has its own wisdom, that could well save one’s life. When we think the best of people and are considering placing our trust in them, this dark side is extremely adept at times in identifying and recognizing dishonesty.
SOME INTERESTING ITEMS TO PONDER
If one can apply the Principle of Polarity, as it relates to world events, the following becomes self evident. Based on what I have observed about our reality, there has been a very conscious decision made, at some point, to utilize a divide and conquer strategy for domination and/or control. Through cunning manipulation, a paradigm has been established that each of us MUST be on either one side or another on any issue, which contradicts universal principles. It takes minimal research to see this being played out through mass media but a relatively recent attempt caught my attention for a number of reasons.
Known as The Flat Earth Theory, it is the equivalent of teaching “Intelligent Design” as being real science. It’s proponents contend, essentially, that NASA has been deceiving the world with images of a round earth. The earth, they state, is really a flat disk. The sun is not 92 million miles away but rather just a few thousand. Additionally, these theorists suggests that this disk we live on is ringed by a 150 foot wall of ice. If “all truths are but half truths”, as written in The Kybalion, how are we to view this assertion that we are living on a disk and not a sphere? Does this mean that there is some truth to it?
To understand the nature of subterfuge, one will almost always encounter misdirection. Mastering this is absolutely essential to any stage magician. So, digging a bit deeper into this flat earth theory – and the polarity principle applies that all truths are but half truths – then there must be both honest and dishonest components involved here, both seen and hidden. To assist further in this quick analysis, we can refer again to Universal Principles, chiefly one known as “Cause and Effect”, and one we are all well acquainted with. In applying this in any alchemical operation, the practitioner must be exact, in terms of what effect they wish to achieve. And only then, would a responsible alchemist or magician focus on how the effect is manifested and what forces to apply. So now there are two interlocking questions which must be addressed:
What is the REAL purpose/desired outcome and who will it effect the most?
One further aspect is worth mentioning here. I have noted with some curiosity that those who write articles about this theory are almost militant in defending it. Rather than address the issue or contradiction, the authors all go ad hominem on any who have disagreements. Some have claimed that this “theory” was designed to draw attention away from other events taking place and that its effects are being closely monitored. There is an eerie parallel between the advancement of this theory and the advancement of the human-caused global warming scam. There is some evidence that the global warming campaign was actually initiated by a private think tank known as the Club Of Rome.
It is here that I will leave this issue, hopefully providing you with a bit of clarity and direction, and move on. The apparent “effect” that is observed can be misleading.
The polarity principle is easily observed globally, and in varying degrees. On a more personal level, we also observe this. A friend inquires “How are you?” with an automatic response of “I’m OK.” We’ve all seen people literally both crying and smiling, giving the same response. Obviously there are many, many varying degrees of “OK”.
There are inherent risks involved in employing the principle of cause and effect, however, if all factors are not considered in the planning stage. Consider a farmer who sets fire to his fields to burn away the old vegetation. It gets out of control and burns down several buildings and homes of neighbors. Perhaps he didn’t account for the strong wind or perhaps the overall dryness of the area, the consequences were not what he expected or anticipated in his planning stage as an “effect”.
The fire getting out of control and burning down houses may not have been a simple accident. There are a wide range of possibilities, some that may involve collusion with his neighbors. Who and what are most effected by this fire? Many investigators, working on the axiom of “Follow the money” will tell you that they play close attention to one basic question: who benefits?
Applying this globally, the effect of some propaganda – usually with a view to injure or vilify a person, idea or nation – can actually have the exact opposite effect than anticipated. One story I have loved since I first heard it involves a very determined lady, who chose to transmute energy, amid the condescending behavior she encountered. In the early 70’s, a lady began baking a special and new type of cookie, and then began approaching large manufacturers to gauge their interest in these new cookies. In every case she was turned down and even ridiculed by some, claiming that people only wanted a crunchy cookie, not the chewy kind she was baking. That lady was Debbie Fields, the founder of Mrs. Field’s Cookies.
THE DEFAULT PRINCIPLE
Looking at the size and reach of Mrs. Field’s Cookies, it becomes obvious that innumerable factors are in play, for a lady to go from baking cookies at home to a multi-national company. I think part of the answer lies in the company description, one particular component especially. It states that, “the Mrs. Field’s name quickly became associated with warm, freshly baked cookies right out of the oven.” I would contend, that in her planning phase, one major consideration was to bring joy and pleasure to people and it was one aspect that she did not compromise on. This also provides some evidence that establishing a foundation for a successful positively-viewed business should be aimed at customer satisfaction, as opposed to profit. An additional consideration is in the art of cooking, where many will suggest that a meal prepared in love can pass on that love energy, when they consume the food.
Another important area to quickly explore is whether this was all chance and good luck, or are there entities moving pieces behind the scenes, to set up chance encounters? If so, as I contend, then how can we utilize them responsibly and ethically? You likely already communicate requests to your guides/angels/Prime Creator but I would suggest that sometimes this is not the most efficient way to accomplish this. It is the equivalent of calling up a company CEO with a detailed, extensive order. For that order to be filled, he is then forced to filter that down to the numerous people required to make it, pack it, and then ship it. Whereas, if the order is given directly to the foremen and workers together, each is made fully aware of the part they play in completion of the work order.
Now, consider something else, that is somewhat related. Some people arm their security network before they leave their home for an extended length of time. This automatically sets a number of things in play, by default. If the alarm is tripped, there is supposed to be an immediate response from the monitoring security company. Unable to reach the owners, they then call the police, who then dispatch officers to the scene. This could be referred to as the “default setting”. This tool, The Default Principle, addresses this very angle, namely a method whereby certain actions are taken by “Spirit”, without requiring our consent for them to assist or take action each and every time.
Rather than an explanation, I will give a few examples of how I employ this invaluable tool and you will quickly see the powerful potential of it.
1) Like many others, before eating a meal, it is imperative that I ask a blessing on/for whatever I’m about to eat. For me, there are several components – gratitude for the meal, appreciation for the hands that prepared it, if meat, apology to the source, which gave their life, and an intent on how I want the food energy used. I am uncomfortable with a lengthy prayer, with bowed head, while out in public, so I agreed with Spirit to utilize a default setting. I addressed Spirit, requesting this. I listed every aspect I thought imperative in a food blessing prayer and requested they take action on, when I performed a very specific action. In this case, I sit down, bow my head, place my hands on either side of the meal for 2 seconds, then touch my heart chakra with one,…. and then open my eyes. So, it is understood by Spirit that each time I take this action with my hands, I am automatically setting in motion – now by default – each protocol and intent established with them. Essentially, this shortens the time requirements.
2) Abundance in its many forms is a necessity to live in this 3D environment. A major driving force and one that can take enormous effort sometimes, is providing for our needs. We all have basic needs that must be met. While we do get cues from our guides, sometimes we have difficulty in understanding them. My belief is that a group of entities known as the Runners are the real “movers and shakers” behind the scenes so I addressed them, as a group, to establish a default setting. I gave them my full permission to take action on my behalf – without needing my permission each time – to ensure that my needs were met. This agreement is one of my most important and effective.
3) Leaving home each day and facing the world, there is another application of this Default Principle. For me, there are 3 key requests/requirements I find to be most important. First is a request to share the Love and Light of the Divine Creator with at least one soul, secondly that my escort of protection accompany me and lastly, offer my services to the Runners, to “pinch hit” for them. Consider, if they can arrange events with people, without their conscious awareness, obviously they may have need of a willing helper. In this case, as you can see, addressing just one group is insufficient; separate rituals must be held with each group separately. Here’s where the default setting comes in. Sometimes I am in a hurry and forget to make these requests when I leave my home. What was agreed was that, each time I left my apartment, the three requests would automatically be made, with ensuing actions set in motion.
Many already understand that Spirit cannot take action unless specifically requested. This is a clear indication of how much power we truly possess, which we all too often forget. The key (and secret) to wielding this “power” responsibly and ethically lies in collaboration with Spirit in its many forms. In my own experience of using this tool for several years, I’ve noted some very unusual occurrences, especially in the area of having my needs supplied. There is an added element of intuition, which often is the slight prodding of Spirit, shining a cosmic light on a desired or needed action I should take.
Working with Spirit in this way, I have also noted a rapid awareness and understanding of certain events and issues, as well as suddenly developing metaphysical and/or spiritual interests. One of the most pleasant aspects is that Spirit will place me in a position where negative energy is present, but I am regarded by both sides as both friendly and impartial. The key is energy. In one case, a couple suddenly came into my life with an unusual relationship and a considerable amount of negativity. I was a calming force at certain times and, oddly enough, they turned out to be in a position to assist in fulfilling a few basic needs for me several times.
As you can see, when utilizing the Default Principle tool, it is essential to be extremely precise. A slight precaution needs to be expressed here; it can be used for both positive and negative intentions. I regard this tool as a form – and the true essence – of sorcery, where one utilizes both Spirit and Source energy to achieve a specified result or condition. In the area of abundance, we may wish the Runners to continually be on the look out for sources of money, or we may make a one-time request for the funds to pay off a bill. An extremely important component, in either case, is that its arrival does not come at the expense of harm or injury to another. (Think Monkey’s Paw.)
Lastly, the suggestions made above on how to use this tool effectively and ethically are only suggestions and guidelines. I found, as I used it more and more that I innately knew when to – and when not to – employ this tool. The result is a new type and a new level of communication that many of us have not previously experienced. You will likely find you are directed to certain ideas or teachings that previously held little attention or that you were not even aware of. When you begin to consciously become aware this is happening, you can feel great joy because you have officially become a valued and trusted co-worker of Spirit.
I have been led to explore some shamanic tools for the last few months and it has been quite fascinating. For instance, many believe in a central type of Akashic Records. Some shamanic beliefs go even further and state that we each have our own personal Record Keeper, one which we can learn to communicate and interact with. As a result, I have been interacting with one guide in particular much more frequently. In his last life, he was an extremely powerful and respected heyoka. I just began experimenting with “Shadow Walking” and will be presenting a report after much more experimentation.
I’ll sign off with a very heartwarming story that may have overtones of this very blog post – Bored Teen Sits At A Mall Piano.
