Is there something as a spiritual calling or have we watched to many movies? I believe there is. People from all walks of life make choices which leads them down a spiritual path. Does this also mean it can be part of a higher spiritual calling? I believe so. But sometimes a persons view of spirituality can be more a part of an adventure and something they do for kicks rather then being honest soul searching.

Media has to carry much of the blame. In media your soul gets advertised like a product which is perhaps meant to be pampered during a weekend of spiritual indulgence. But if we treat our inner essence as something as easily categorized as buying a new car or visiting a spa, then we reduce ourselves to material objects. And even if the brochures promises us happiness there can only be emptiness when our memories starts to fade away when Monday arrives.

The soul can never be likened to an object which is meant to be taken care of by you during spiritual adventures. You are a spiritual being momentarily blinded by too many distractions to fully understand that it is actually the other way around.

By the Sea

Papaji says: "Your nature is Silence" and urges us to keep quiet and not seek it. And why should we argue? The mind is full of noises and all they do is help to make more noises.

We can't find anything true if we are too caught up in the noises in the mind. But this doesn't mean to me that the answer to life is to block out that which makes the most noise. Or to try and deafen the noises by draining them with distractions. That would be the equivalent of putting on headphones with loud music when there's a fire in our house. Instead this means to not keep listening or doing that which makes the heart and mind, deaf and blind.

Therefore it's important to keep doing that soul searching. Keep questioning actions and ideas. Don't get too happy with the results since this leads to arrogance. It's common in western spiritual circles to search after being comfortable and content rather than to try and shed illusions of the self. Many see spiritual growth as almost a feeling of being satisfied in the belly.

Question everything which is depicted as healthy and good by media. Because chances are this is nothing but product placement and advertisement. Your experience of being a human be-ing can't be bought or sold to you. It is what you are. And the more you chase after it, the more noises and distractions you need to shed. All the while there you are, always present. Ready to be found by yourself.

Humans are the only species that pay to live on the Earth

Our life's are so messed up that we cling to anything, fearing that things could only get worse if we let go. And it doesn't seem to matter even if we know it's crazy, we do it anyhow. That's the reason we don't allow ourselves to think big, free and awake. Sometimes we are so afraid of change, since change has lied to us so many times before, that we feel anxiety to even think about something different.

If you identify with your physical body you become easy to imprison. You are like a bird in a cage, you don't have room to fly so how can you grow? But if you become a prisoner inside your own mind. You don't even need a cage. Since you don't even realize you have wings.

Don't take this as a message of doom and gloom. Instead it's a wake up call. People only showing you the dark will make you become lost, and people who tell you to only look towards the light, are the ones making you blind. We don't become stupid or mad by opening our eyes, but we become dangerously unbalanced by focusing to much either way. The world strives towards balance. So should you.

Here it is. This is the lesson you have come here to learn. I'm going to share with you the most important truism about yourself that you will probably hear. Although it's extremely simple, people spend lifetimes trying to grasp this. And people have been killed trying to spread this knowledge.

You can think of this knowledge as only reading the last chapter of a book. Reading this you're going to learn how the story ends: "And who the killer is".
But this might not mean you understand how it came about. This is the gamecheat that takes you directly to the boss.

But before we start. I don't want you to think that just because the answer is simple that it also means it's easy to grasp. Chances are you won't understand the meaning of what I'm about to say. And it has nothing to do with intelligence. It has to do with what you can percive through your soul. Your brain might even try and disregard it as something unimportant because your mind has been trained to see only that which it regards as understandable.

So without further ado. Here it is:

The Most Important Lesson You Will Ever Learn

It's all about you. You're the end-product. Nothing you do is ever as important - as being you. It's only ever about you. Nothing that you or someone else can produce can even be worth a millionth-, millionth-, millionth- times as much as a mere second in your life when you are you.

Your life is about you experiencing yourself. But it is NOT about what might come out of this "experience". Your own life and everybody else's lifes are about experiencing an experience. And extremely low in terms of worth is what might come out "as a effect" from this experience.

hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy: World factoryAn example: Think of a big factory. This factory is known throughout the Universe for its supreme greatness. Imagine if you will that this extremely big, super modern, amazingly complicated factory produces something that we might call: World Creator Mashines. And with just one of these amazing machines can someone manufacture out of thin air a Whole Brand New World! Complete with live animals, mountains, rivers, air, forests and everything else (Just like in the Douglas Adams novel).

Now imagine a particular person in this great factory. A maintenence guy who just started working there. Let's call him Ralph.

The truth is that the experience Ralph has being Ralph every day is immensly more important then whatever great stuff this factory can ever produce. Of course it's great that the factory produces such unbelievable useful machines! But it can never be as important in comparison to Ralph being Ralph. And it doesn't matter how many people are involved in the process of creating worlds. Your life is about you experiencing yourself. And before anything else, this is what matters. NOTHING can compare to this experience in terms of worth. And everything produced always comes as a effect from you experiencing you.

Now take the ideas of "worth" and apply it to everything we know about the world we live in. Think about how the world is governed and the "rules and laws" that have been made up which are currently used to rule the world. How many of these laws and rules are really important? Never mind how many laws which are fair and produces something good..

Almost everything in the world which is normally perceived as important and of value is really worth anything besides the imaginary worth applied to it by consensus. Everything that really matters and of real value has to do about the experience of being you. The rest is secondary. Can you imagine if the laws of the world would be chosen out of how well they help to create the best possible environment imaginable for living beings experiencing themselves..

Understanding what real worth is about also means that we can choose to do great things while being ourselves. One truism does not trump another. To me part of realizing what life is about is to understand that we can become whatever we want. I personally choose to live wisely, co-existing in happiness with everything else. I enjoy being human.

Please take this knowledge into your heart and become it. Live the knowledge. Life exists for itself. My personal hope is that each and everyone realizing this knowledge also chooses to use it to help others. Help others realize who they are.

Live like someone left the door open

I went on a vision quest a couple of years back. I was searching for answers in my own life and were trying to find a good path which would lead me to better places.

A little simplified, a vision quest is a rite where you go out in nature searching for spiritual guidance and purpose. Often you spend time sitting alone in a predesignated spot while waking and fasting, and will remain there until the quest is over or the Shaman (don't go out alone) brings you back.

I learned a very valuable lesson while being out there. And I wish to share some of it.

Regardless if you are feeling good and think of yourself as successful, or if you are suffering all the while you struggle from paycheck to paycheck, the view which we experience what happens defines our feeling of happiness.

If we are to close to events we might not see the bigger picture. If we push life away we might end up with a series of events which we feel we didn't choose.

If life was a rope - holding it to tight might make it snap. Holding it too loose could make it dragging in the dirt. And if we are not careful and choose wisely our rope can turn into a noose.

Sometimes, you need to step outside, get some air. And remind yourself of who you are and who you want to be.

Below is a wonderful story which also expresses what I want to share with you. Remember never to take anything with you in life which doesn't help you on your path.

An aging Hindu master grew tired of his apprentice complaining, and so, one morning, sent him for some salt. When the apprentice returned, the master instructed the unhappy young man to put a handful of salt in a glass of water and then to drink it.

"How does it taste?" the master asked. "Bitter," spit the apprentice.

The master then asked the young man to take another handful of salt and put it in the lake nearby. Once the apprentice swirled his handful of salt in the water, the old man said, "Now drink from the lake."

As the water dripped down the young man's chin, the master asked, "How does it taste?" "Fresh," remarked the apprentice.

"Do you taste the salt?" asked the master. "No," said the young man.

At this, the master took the young man's hands, offering, "The pain of life is pure salt; no more, no less. The amount of pain in life remains exactly the same. However, the amount of bitterness we taste depends on the container we put the pain in. So when you are in pain, the only thing you can do is to enlarge your sense of things .... STOP BEING A GLASS. BECOME A LAKE."

If you have hindrances inside of you blocking you from becoming whatever you feel you're supposed to be - then you need to face it and stare it in the eye. And one's you've seen it, faced it and taken care of it. You MUST leave it. I doesn't matter if you face your fear a million times, if you persist to carry your troubles with you then you never really faced and overcame them.

Quote

To understand the next part you need to watch the short video below.

But first, in this video Tobias Lars Gunnar explains that demons and whatnot are part of our inner self's. I respect those views and have heard them often but I don't necessarily always agree. My views are that we do have our own inner ghosts and fears which sometimes also materialize to us. But there are also other entities which exists without our participation.

This video holds a refreshing, uplifting message. Not the easy, prepackaged self help designed to boost the ego, but the real deal speaking to the human being we all are.

We can not get to the bottom with our own real issues without first staring into our inner void. It's from what we learn about ourselves, even if it scares us sometimes, that we also have the potential to grow and heal.

It would be nice if everyone worked for truth and good. But they are not, are they? It's quite obvious if we look around us.

Let's break down some of the usual content being spread through channeling. I'm not pointing towards any channeler in particular, nor am I using anything but commonsense when spotting false channeling.

Let's start. These are the signs you should look out for when confronted with channelers. ..In no particular order:

Does the message come packaged with lots of "ifs"?

If the promises made comes with things you need to do in return before you "get it" or "get something". If you have to do this and that before you can taste the sweet fruits of what's being promised. Then you need to think long and hard if you are actually receiving anything at all.

Does the message or messenger leave you drained of energy?

If these so called "high beings" of love and light which supposedly evolved into something great leaves you with a feeling of energy loss. You need to question both the message and its messenger. You don't want to be in business with a energy vampire.

Does the message use unnecessary distracting and "beautiful" wordings?

If the message itself is getting lost in the "beautiful and colorful analogies", you should take extra care to analyze what's actually being said. It's nice to read poetry, but if you are asked to sign something you probably want it in plain English.

The message can't be understood

If you have to be an insider or almost a channeler yourself to be able and understand the meaning of the message. Consider if the message really seems to have any meaning to begin with..

Is everything about you oh so special?

It's nice to hear a compliment about how intelligent and insightful we are. But if every message is draped in language which makes you feel like you probably are an angel in disguise. And thank God you meet this person because he/she sure makes you feel special in every way..! - Then please look out! This is the oldest trick in the book. Most people starts to pay close attention if the car salesman sugarcoats the deal too much..

Do they deliver?

If they promise miracles and wonderful things - then keep track of what they say! If they don't deliver then obviously this would be reasons for concern.
Remember the saying? Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.

Are you a slow thinker?

If you feel you are being swept away with the magic of the situation. Then put your foot on the breaks. If the message is good today, it is damn sure going to be just as great tomorrow.

We're here to help!

Super beings posing as saviors are not what I personally would say is a good thing. I would rather meet a being out of mutual respect. It's not that I'm Mr Cranky, but let's get to know each other first before I'll accept "you" as the Messiah..

Always listen to your own heart

We have great a intuition, use it!

♪ ♫ .. .Fly me to the moon.. ♫ ♩

Some channelers and "starbeings" seems to enjoy making amazing promises where you get to ride spaceships and travel to other solar systems and other wonderful things. And you know what.., as amazing as this would be..! It's like your momma said when you were young: If a stranger stops you on the curve and offers sweets and asks you to take a ride with them in the car ... You think it would be wise to accept it? Just like that?!

Commentary (see link at bottom)

This is such a lot of bullshit that I can't stand it anymore. This "Salusa" crap is getting on my nerves. And I don't get angered easily.

Now, try and look at the bigger picture. First, we all want peace and we all want what is right. We do not want more wars, we just want to live free without poverty and debt. And the so called leaders of the world can all go and showe it..

BUT what's being said here in this channeling resembles a got damn hostage situation.

THINK about what you are reading! If this is a hoax, which I'm personally betting on, this is complete and utter nonsense. If this is supposedly going to "help us", you are asked to trust this condescending masterminding BS like it's the saviors of the galaxy coming to help the Earth..

Have you learn nothing from past missionaries, armies, UN, NATO and covert operations coming to "save and liberating" people around the world? Are you going to blindly accept any crap just because it's being packaged with words like "Dear Ones", "Divine", "Ascension", "we are empowered by God" and the likes of it.

I mean come on! At least look for a small shred of proof before you blindly accept this channeling messages as some kind of truth.

.. "Last chance for your leaders to respond to our demands."

.. oh please.

Galaxy

If you are waiting for ET:s going to take you into outer space and then turning you into some kind of star-being. You are destined for disappointments and perhaps a harsh awakening.

Ascension, as in the beliefs that there are certain rare individuals that will "ascend into Heaven" by technology or by the help of starbeings is a belief system which mixes religious and mystical sayings and then twists their messages into meaning something they didn't do in the first place.

Ascension to or with ET:s are at best an misunderstanding, at worst it's a deception to get you beliving in lies.

Try and picture the real world around you ..

Everything you ever needed have always been right here where you are. You might not understand it where you are right now, but you have always been "ascended" and really the only thing that's wrong is your idea that you aren't.

There are many reasons why most don't understand our true nature but the most important thing to do is not debating various reasons and questions. The important knowledge lies in your awakening to what is.

The knowledge or Gnosis which I'm taking about has to do with realization that you already are what you've been looking for. But you are not the crown of creation - you are the creation, together as one with everything that exists.

Don't look for heaven above, instead worry about why you don't find it where you already are! Mother Earth is your birthplace. The Earth Mother have already provided you with everything you need as to find out what you are and is patiently awaiting your awakening.

Talks about "Ascension" where ET:s are going to take you into space and then somehow "help you" into becoming something you are supposedly missing or have lost.. -  Is a misleading fantasy, designed to make you chasing after illusions.

Do you want proof?

Go into the night, stand alone watching and listening to the sounds of nature. Feel what's happening around you. Be still and just rest quietly where you are while paying attention to everything around you.

While doing so - open your heart and take in the loving voice of Mother Earth.

When you feel ready. Ask the night around you: Do I need to go somewhere as to become complete? Or am I already where I'm suppose to be.

Then be still in the heart and listen.

Mother and ChildWhen a woman of a certain African tribe knows she is pregnant, she goes to the jungle with other women, and together they pray and meditate until you get to The song of the child.

When a child is born, the community gets together and they sing the child's song. When the child begins his education, people get together and he sings his song. When they become an adult, they get together again and sing it. When it comes to your wedding, the person hears his song. Finally, when their soul is going from this world, family and friends are approaching and, like his birth, sing their song to accompany it in the "journey".

In the tribe, there is another occasion when men sing the song. If at some point the person commits a crime or aberrant social act, they take him to the center of town and the people of the community form a circle around her. Then they sing "your song." The tribe recognizes that the correction for antisocial behavior is not punishment, but is the love and memory of his true identity. When we recognize our own song, we have no desire or need to hurt anyone.

Your friends know "your song". And sing when you forget it. Those who love you can not be fooled by mistakes you have committed, or dark images you show to others. They remember your beauty as you feel ugly, your total when you're broke, your innocence when you feel guilty and your purpose when you're confused.

~ Tolba Phanem, African poet
