39 — Thought, Thinking, and Tribes


I am not my thoughts. I am not thought.
I am not the thinker of thoughts.
I am the observer of thought.

The Collective Consciousness

The collective consciousness (“collective” in the following) is of the little self/ego. It is not of the higher self/soul. The higher self is the observer of the collective, but not of it.

36 — For Men Only (Mostly?): The Ascension of the Divine Feminine

My Journey

The following is based on what I’ve experienced along my spiritual journey. As with all realizations and revelations, they are mine, and yours may be different. Nevertheless, I’ve been encouraged by a couple of very good friends who are also on steep spiritual paths to write about the following experiences since they may have relevance for others—especially other men.

32 — Setting Right Relationships

When I look at you, I (my little self—the place from which I normally operate) form a concept of who you are. I do that through my interpretation of what I receive predominantly from seeing you, hearing you, smelling you, touching you—maybe in some sense tasting you. There may be some gut feel that also informs this concept. When you look at me, you (your little self) forms a concept of who I am. This is a “natural” aspect of little self behavior— Continue reading
