World events, in recent months especially, has steamrolled forward at such an alarming pace, it is difficult to keep up with the latest moves by the numerous players on the world stage. Any reasonably informed researcher would note the disparity in accounts by varying sides, a reflection of course, of the Principle of Polarity in action. This post will quickly explore an aspect of polarity that is, quite simply, a paradox and will provide a relevant and recent occurrence. If one can understand the polarity/paradox connection, they provide themselves with another valuable tool of discernment when viewing world events. There were some additional noteworthy events playing out that I wanted to examine briefly, using the lens of Universal Principles and conclude with how to establish a contract with The Runners, specifically to ensure that one’s needs are always met.
POLARITY AND THE PARADOX
“All truths are but half truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.” The Kybalion
At first thought, one may have doubts about the validity of the above stated axioms. But isn’t a paradox, almost by definition, something that cannot be reconciled? There are actually three related definitions to this word:
1) A seemingly contradictory statement that may nonetheless be true
2) One exhibiting inexplicable or contradictory aspects
3) An assertion that is essentially self-contradictory, though based on a valid deduction from acceptable premises
A very recent event will aptly display this paradox in action, from the lens of Universal Principles. According to numerous sources, at the Iowa Caucus, it was reported that Hillary Clinton won six coin tosses in a row.
Understandably, many have voiced their suspicion about such a seemingly unlikely event. There have been estimates that suggest the likelihood of this actually happening is 1 in 64. Those are some long odds and common sense would dictate that there is some validity for suspecting the coin toss results.
There is another equally valid suggestion, if viewed from a slightly different lens. First, it must be understood that each coin toss is a singular action that is in no way dependent on the previous toss. In other words, each coin toss is a whole new ball game. Based on that viewpoint, what are the odds? The odds are 50/50 each and every time. You will have to decide whether this is “correct” or the opposing viewpoint as 1 in 64 is valid. Or are they both “right”?
In this case, opposites are simply variations of the same observable truth: Hillary won 6 coin tosses in a row. In Canada, the odds of winning a given jackpot in Lotto 649 are roughly 1 in 14,000,000 and yet people manage to defy those incredible odds occasionally and win. To win even a $5 dollar prize, the odds are calculated at 1 in 81.2. You’ll likely note that both winning the lottery and six coin tosses is an apples/oranges comparison and you’d be absolutely right. The toss involved 6 separate actions that were independent of each other, while the lottery requires specific numbers to precede and follow each other to match up perfectly.
According to Universal Principles, both are simply variations – or varying vibrations – of the same truth. In effect, this seeming paradox can be reconciled. Both assertions from opposing viewpoints of this event are truth based on numerous factors, not the least being the often touted “law of averages”. Based on the knowledge on hand, while this event may seem unlikely or improbable at the outset, it is not impossible. It can be shown that each side of this issue has considerable validity.
THE HOLY POPE IS COMING TO TOWN – THE FIRST TIME IN 1,000 YEARS
On February 12, in Havana, Cuba, an historic meeting will be taking place. TASS News Service reported on an upcoming meeting between Pope Francis and the patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Bishop Kirill. I found this fascinating on a number of levels, especially when it was disclosed that “preparations” for this historic meeting had been 20 years in the making. This was essentially a cocked gun, ready to be set in motion at a precise time. I have no opinion about whether this is good or bad, and a cross section of humanity, if polled, would likely be dominated by those with a positive view and those who couldn’t give a sh*t.
The RC church has shown throughout its history that it is no friend of science, and yet when forced to adapt, they embrace areas like technology and medicine but continue to promote a bronze age mentality when it comes to condoms and the place of women in the “pecking order” of the church. Many eyebrows were raised when a new telescope, funded by The Vatican, came online with the surprising name of LUCIFER. Some believers have rightfully – to some extent – pointed out that this is simply an acronym.
On the other hand, of course, is why would they even consider using the name of their supposedly greatest foe, the enemy of god himself, the one responsible for all evil in the world? Father Malachi Martin, among numerous others, have made assertions that some very unChristian events were taking place behind closed doors that involved this very entity. An added consideration, as well, is the vast influence both the Jesuits and the RC Church has over a considerable number of people, in almost every nation. Amid numerous scandals, the reputation of the Church has been irrevocably tarnished. I do not say that as simply a flippant comment to take a poke at religion.
On the other hand, Patriarch Kirill represents all of Russia, contained within the Russian Orthodox Church, that has survived – even at the height of communism – with very few skeletons in their closet. From numerous sources there are accounts of a newfound spirituality in Russia, with a growing number, including the military, turning to the Church. There is some controversy over President Putin and his claim of being a Christian. Some in the west have argued it’s only for appearance sake. Based on his deportment and bearing, I have no reason to disbelieve that he doesn’t follow some type of spiritual and/or moral code. In a 2008 Pew Poll, little more than a decade after the fall of the USSR, 72% of Russians polled identified with the Russian Orthodox Church. Russia has undeniably taken a huge leadership role in world events recently and is now seen by an increasing number of people globally as a force for “good”. It can’t be forgotten that Edgar Cayce predicted this very scenario, while Russia was still under the yoke of Stalin.
The fact remains that this meeting will take place and we personally have no power to stop it or whatever is discussed. I would suggest that any further speculation is really a waste of energy. But speaking of predictions…
THE RISE OF GREECE
It appears that the current conflict in Syria – but more precisely the state of hostility – between Russia and Turkey has reached an all-time high level. A recent news item out of Greece suggests that a cleric actually predicted a war between these two countries, and the major recipient of the spoils of war would be Greece, including Istanbul. Known as Elder Paisios, he actually had 9 prophecies related to a Middle East conflict. Consider less than 6 months ago, the thought of Turkey and Russia in open conflict was hardly foreseeable, let alone possible. Obviously the quagmires created in Syria, Iraq, Yemen and Libya have innumerable peripheral tentacles with a complex set of variables and objectives.
He did, however, have some interesting things to say. Among them was to be wary when you see them placing a dam on the Euphrates River because that is the first sign of fulfillment of his prophecies. It is done, according to the Elder, to facilitate a massive army of 200 million troops from China, en route to the Middle East. He also contends that sometime in this same period 2/3 of all Jews will convert to Christianity. This is, of course, eerily similar to the Christian Zionist belief, that this would happen, in the End Times.
I find the timing quite unusual that his prophecies are only recently becoming more mainstream knowledge. By most accounts, the people of Greece have been living under a crushing load of austerity and public dissatisfaction is on the rise. Predictions, however, are what is termed in Remote Viewing as “front loading”. Throughout history, religion and religious figures have established memes, that direct attention in a specific direction, more commonly known as propaganda. The Crusades stand out as a shining example, in which total deception – namely that Christians were being persecuted and killed by Muslims in the Holy Land – established a meme of suffering brothers and sisters in the land where baby Jesus was born. Not to mention the enduring and highly fictitious meme known as Prester John. Some sources claim this legend inspired several generations of Crusaders.
The point is that a religious point of view – in this case a series of prophecies – has been shown to be used, at times, to become self-fulfilling prophecies. Nothing simply and miraculously just happens…. though sometimes hidden or unknown by all, every event is the result of numerous causal factors. When seeds are planted and a group of people believe in a cause, they often begin taking direct or indirect action to see it fulfilled, consciously or without clear understanding.
BOOGA, BOOGA, ZIKA, ZIKA
The new “pandemic”, according to the World Health Organization, is now the ZIKA virus and further claims it is responsible for a rash of babies, born in South America, with a condition known as microcephaly, a rare brain condition. Dr. Gary Kohls has an eye-opening article on this contentious issue and it is from the perspective of a practicing physician who no longer advocates for the pharmaceutical industry. One very interesting component is that this virus has not only been around since at least 1947, a very wealthy family actually owns the patent!
Perhaps unrelated, but there are reports that this same family purchased Charlie Hebdo only months before the massacre. I am not engaging in conspiracy theories here, nor am I saying that this family had any direct involvement in these tragic events. These facts are part of the entire puzzle of who planned, financed and carried out the attacks. Consider that truth has many different vibrations; instead of being the alleged villains, they may may well be the victim…. or both.
RUNNING WITH THE RUNNERS
It was suggested to me to sketch out the most direct means of ensuring our needs are met. I did mention it in my last post as my most important collaboration and I was not overstating that. I do have to mention that this particular tool was the result of one of Raziel’s messages, where he first mentioned The Default Principle. He detailed a very basic application of this tool that provided a necessary grounding and understanding to begin to explore and experiment. In the initial application, he suggests that most evenings, part of ourselves actually leaves the physical body, for a wide variety of purposes and reasons. He called this The Default Principle, or the “default setting”. At night, when we sleep, this separation happens automatically… or by default. His concern was the numerous people who, after several hours of sleep, found themselves just as tired as when they went to bed. His suggestion was to address our guides and inform them we need a night off. He also instilled in me an understanding of how crucial a role The Runners play, behind the scenes, to ensure certain actions take place… and that it was in my best interest to get on their good side…lol.
A common problem that each of us has faced involves our concern that our needs are met. In viewing the way I asked for help in the past, it always seemed to be simply reactive – a need suddenly appears and I have to scramble, to make ends meet. Once too often I found myself in that position of desperation, the kind that each of us has experienced to varying degrees and it can take a heavy emotional toll on anyone. The following ritual/tool is not a quick pop-up idea – I have been using The Default Principle for a number of years to ensure my needs are always met…. in a timely manner. Admittedly, in some cases there has been a short “famine” segment, but it has never been for more than a day and it never caused me harm or injury. On the reverse, I have seen some truly remarkable sources assist me, that really arrived right of the blue. So the purpose of this tool, in this application, is to grant The Runners your trust and allow them to ensure all your needs are met, in a timely manner. You also grant them your full permission to take action independently, without requiring one to ask each time to fulfill a specific need. This essentially puts fulfilling your needs on autopilot and gives The Runners a free hand in providing the most direct and effective means of supplying a need(s)… before it becomes an issue of anxiety. Prior to fully pursuing this ritual and collaboration, it would be prudent to familiarize yourself with a few preliminary but important considerations.
1) No relationship of trust can exist where only one side does the work. This agreement essentially tasks The Runners with providing a significant amount of energy and effort that benefits us. It is not unreasonable for Them to suggest or expect a return offer of assistance, to aid Them in this 3D reality. Letting Them know that you’ll aid them, not out of obligation but respect and gratitude, can result in some fascinating encounters.
2) This agreement is incumbent on us to do our part. Aside from “volunteering”, one aspect you will begin to note is a different level of communication. This collaboration means sometimes that we are directed to do certain things that may seem out of the ordinary or maybe even simple absent-mindedness. Sometimes we have to be placed in a specific location, at a specific time. This urge to action can sometimes be confusing; even after a number of years, I don’t always fully understand Their promptings. For instance, seeing some significance in a lottery draw, buying a ticket and not getting even one number. The good news is that even if I didn’t “get” the initial urgings, I found that They had a way of ensuring I did take a specific action, anything from making a phone call at a precise time to taking along a few extra cigarettes when I leave home to offer people who may ask.
3) There is potential for interference from the opposition. When I mention taking actions at an inner urging, I want to be extremely plain about one thing: If those urgings are to commit acts that are contrary to our morals and ethics, it will never be from your team of astral co-workers, working to assist you. If you do sense or believe that an entity is trying to influence you in a negative way, The Runners are extremely efficient at removing such attachments, which I’ll detail in a future post. In Magic 101, an immediate action, when a negative influence is sensed, is to stop everything…. then laugh loud and long.
4) Gratitude and courtesy never go out of style. Should you venture to apply this tool, in this application, I can guarantee you some unusual results that will be extremely noticeable. When observed, I highly suggest that you address Them and offer your genuine gratitude, even if it is retroactive. They derive a great deal of satisfaction from diligently completing a task and being recognized and appreciated.
5) Be generous of spirit. This involves not only our actions but thoughts as well. We all have a shadow self that can sometimes pop up with a critical critique of a person or group. For example, earlier this year, Saudia Arabia beheaded a record number of prisoners, including a Shiite cleric, who was well respected for his preaching of non-violent protest. The very idea of doling out such a barbaric and medieval punishment is an affront to many. The Runners suggest that such events serve a number of purposes, even though the method is unsettling. Bottom line: Don’t get caught up in the blame game, where we harbor ill will, in any form.
ON WITH THE SHOW, THIS IS IT
This tool is not unlike contracting a tradesperson, where we ask The Runners to take whatever actions are required to address the problem, or in this case ensuring our needs are always met. A preliminary consideration is, like any magical operation, knowing exactly what you wish to achieve and then express that fully. The more information you can add to assist The Runners, the more They are freer to take action. Once you have written it down, go to a quiet place, where you won’t be disturbed, and simply address Them. If you’re drawn to do so, light a single or pair of candles to signal you are initiating your ritual and then blow them out upon completion, closing your circle, if you’ve added that factor.The following is a sample request, and contains the most relevant factors:
Runners, I have experienced times of intense anxiety where my needs were not met on time. I request your help in ensuring that my needs are always met in a timely manner. I grant you my trust and also my full authority to take any actions that are necessary to achieve this goal. One condition I place on this is that nobody is harmed or injured, in fulfilling my needs. I fully understand that I will also have to take action, when prompted. I request this agreement be made effective immediately.
This is my will. As it is spoken, so it is. Thank you, Runners, for your future assistance and friendship.
As I mentioned this is only a sample but gives you an idea of the very basic requirements to make this thing happen. A buffet or “Chaos Magic” approach to this is the most effective – based on my observation and experience – where one essentially takes what is needed and sets aside the rest. The objective is to establish this link in a way that is unique to each of us.
As for grooming a more intimate connection with The Runners, my suggestion is to simply talk to Them. Let Them know that you may need help in identifying and acting on Their promptings.One agreement with Them, for example. involves a very distinctive sensation in a specific place on my body. Added to this, of course, you can also establish further default settings with Them. For instance, make an agreement that no matter what, when you leave your home, you are available to assist Them in any way you can. What is understood by both parties is that, even if we don’t expressly say it, the action of locking the front door will set this in motion by default. One somewhat uncomfortable by-product of this type of spiritual collaboration is you will experience extended periods of absent-mindedness, where you feel as though you are simply on autopilot. There is an adjustment process taking place. A physical equivalent would be starting a new job, during the exact opposite hours you’re used to working. You’ve become part of a larger collective, and you’ll be communicating and interacting with some of them, while establishing your own understanding on where you actually fit in. An adjustment process is taking place.
In working with Them in requesting Cosmic Signs, I found that if there was a sign imminent, Their influence became very noticeable. There were times, however, when I had to stop and request that They assist in keeping me aware, to see the sign if it was manifested. My point is that if you experience confusion about an inner prompting, stop and talk to Them. I’m going to conclude with a short summary of one experience where I went from being annoyed to tears of joy in my eyes.
STORY TIME WITH DOCTOR NICK
It was winter time, I had $3 and was going to use it to take the bus the next day to run a few errands. I was urged, oddly enough, to go buy a lottery ticket the night before. I was “underwhelmed” when, upon checking the numbers, found I didn’t even get one!! The ticket was useless and I consigned myself to the half hour walk. I paused inside the door of the bank, some time later, to put on my gloves, while eyeing a big chunk of pointed icicles hanging about 8 feet above the door. I even commented to myself that somebody would be badly injured if it ever fell. Here’s where the weirdness continued in my adventure: I was on my fourth or fifth pace away from the door and dangerous hanging icicles, when I heard a loud crash behind me. The huge chunk of ice had fallen where I had been…. mere seconds before!
The strangeness continued when I was urged to walk over to a community coffee house, about 10 minutes away. It was damn cold but I heeded Their urging. I came across a long stretch of open sidewalk, and off in the distance, I noted someone in an electric wheelchair coming in my direction. As I got about 75 feet from him, he suddenly careened into some piled up snow and became stuck. There was nobody around except me, and I pushed him out and over another pile of snow down the street and then he was on his way, waving his hand in thanks. Now, here’s some more strangeness:
I distinctly heard a voice tell me: “This is why we needed you to spend your money on a lottery ticket. You were needed to assist him. If you had taken the bus, you would not have been in a position to do so.” All I can add is that any resentment I had about the useless ticket melted instantly and I shed a few tears of joy. My lesson from this event was the recognition that communication is key, and it is never wrong to request an understanding of an action one feels prompted to take.
I cannot state enough how important and valuable this tool and this collaboration is to me. One very positive outcome has been what feels like a major breakthrough in my connection to and communication with Spirit, in its many forms…. and one that I’ve been able to pursue in many other areas. If you do choose to employ this tool, I would request that you take a moment to thank Raziel, who provided the basis for this tool several years ago.
That’s it and thank you for dropping by.
Namaste, Nick xx
