“Let us enter the eternal and infinite Garden of Mystery, our Spirits in Oneness with the Heavenly Father; our bodies in Oneness with the Heavenly Mother; and our hearts and minds in Oneness with each other and with all of creation.”
The Essene Prologue
Who hasn’t seen The Matrix film series? Probably more than I can imagine, it was never compulsory. For those of us who have, we will have one or more special moments which chime with our own world view. Isn’t everyone born with a splinter in their mind? Doesn’t everyone want to get to the bottom of who they are, why they are here and what life is all about? Surely?
No they don’t. For many it will be because they are metaphorically asleep, preoccupied with the next episode of Love Island, how they can get their next monosodium glutamate (MSG, a toxic food additive) fix and source the latest gadget. If this is you I can guarantee you will not be reading this.
We now move into significant territory. And paradox. Some people are born into truly dysfunctional families. The worst kind of dysfunction can emotionally (and ultimately physically) destroy people. The lid has been taken off Pandora’s box, they have been scared witless and it has been nailed back on. Their lives, perhaps like everyone’s life, are catalogues of coping, highs and lows, bliss and tragedy and a splinter, something unresolved, that they have no desire to acknowledge or consider its removal. But don’t we all know, or at least have read about, someone born into a dysfunctional family who becomes a gift to humanity or to at least his or her (functional) family? Hallelujah!
The Infinite Garden of Mystery.
I suspect those consciously aware of their splinters struggle to understand those who have no motivation in addressing theirs.
And the consequences?
If someone sets out on a personal quest to resolve their own issues and as a consequence live a better life and allow that improvement to radiate out to others, that is surely sufficient. Every process of “raising one’s vibrations” (can’t seem to get rid of this!) impacts on the whole of creation. And no one can be blamed, because who truly knows another’s life, for keeping the lid on.
Beyond the personal quest, but it almost always (100%?) begins in this way as maybe perhaps we reincarnated for this very purpose, lies the motivation to improve the lot of humanity. Exploration, research, experimentation, questioning, curiosity all drive the human being as historians, archaeologists, geologists, biologists, medical researchers, physicists, chemists, and even genuine politicians to serve all sentient beings. We know much research and therefore its publication or manifestation in physical form is driven by greed, corruption and psychopathy. For some other time.
I would like to think, in truth I’m certain, that we would all wish a better world for the next generation. Those who are down here to manipulate, control and exploit are not part of this discussion.
Readers familiar with my blog posts will know about the Archimedes principle of finding a lever long enough to move the world. In other words, to paraphrase an NLP mantra, what is the difference that makes the difference? And to draw from the work of sages described in several other of my blog posts, to find the truth, we need to let go of, to release all the untruths, the negative conditioning of many lifetimes. This may become an algorithm.
So we could say (notice I’ve shifted from me to we) that those resigned to a life of something unexplored are uninterested in the truth? Or the cynic would say that those of us pursuing something unresolved are deluding themselves. This world is all there is, and trying to understand that and live through it with any degree of happiness is enough. To “dabble” with even the possibility of other worlds is a step too far.
“The main purpose of the myth of Pandora though is to address the question of why evil exists in the world.”
It is fully understandable when those other worlds are construed as problematic, “evil”. We even have famous media people (Brian Cox) who could never subscribe to another “world” as he believes there is only one planet that supports life in an infinite universe.
Ducking the charge of being hypocritical, I personally resisted the whole idea of spirit, reincarnation and other dimensions for a very long time. My left brain prison was sometimes very comfortable and even when it just had a straw mattress and a slop bucket it offered security and some certainty in a world we are told daily is frightening and threatening. As a recovering academic I would suggest there is such a thing as left brain institutionalisation. Those suffering from it are in charge of the mass media.
One of the great gifts of this exceedingly beautiful but eternally challenging life is that as you get older you realise none of us are “better” than anyone else. That I have spent my life, or at least most of it and will continue to do so, in a form of service and am highly motivated to find the Holy Grail of cause and effect when it comes to illness fails to make me “special” except in the minds of others. I was told and realised many years ago if you ever became a therapist to be placed on a pedestal and to receive continuous acclaim from others then don’t bother. Priceless advice.
We all know that to negotiate our way through this insane, inverted world we must have more than our fair share of humility.
And although in closing I fully accept the paragraph below it will never stop me from my personal (did I say global?) quest:
“Sometimes, too, an illness remains inexplicable in spite of our best efforts to understand it and this needs to be received and appreciated as something beyond our grasp, beyond our control.”

I can’t, and won’t, let it lie.

“He who rejects change is the architect of decay. The only human institution which rejects progress is the cemetery.”
I like interesting quotes and one of the more disturbing aspects of contemporary living is that zealots and some “woke” activists want to rewrite history by having statues and similar of those who may have (in most cases did) carried out racist, sexist, or at the very least colonialist actions, taken down. Are they wrong? Because on the page I found the above quote there was another one from arch-satanist and psychopath Hillary Clinton…
Blessings to you all, Jack Stewart October 17, 2019.

Do you really want to know what inspired this post? This morning I “bumped into” an old friend. We shared some stories about Vanessa. Then she told me that her husband had just been diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease. For some time after, I walked around cursing and swearing; devastated. How much more horror do I need to hear about? Her husband is a brilliant bloke, in his late 40’s/early 50’s. Then I saw one of Vanessa’s calling cards, a white feather…
