Information heavy

Information heavy

The lecture was
laden with form
charts and nouns
throwing back
to hearers
hearing perhaps
what not intended..
An exposure to
learning and
learning to learn...

Late Spring Snow

Late Spring Snow

This stranger arrives
introducing May
perception with thought
coloring presence
green and white..

perhaps May
seen in green
protruding through the
covering white snow..
A green precursor
a guide to
a persistent spring..

Snow as Silence
lightly landing
diffusing color and form
awaiting explosion
in May
two days away...

Are we a simulation?

At the most recent Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate, [scientists gathered to address the question for the year: Is the universe a computer simulation? At the debate, host and celebrity astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson argued that the probability is that we live in a computer simulation.] This is the crux of Tyson's point: if we take it as read that it is, in principle, possible to simulate a universe in some way, at some point in the future, then we have to assume that on an infinite timeline some species, somewhere, will simulate the universe. And if the universe will be perfectly, or near-perfectly, simulated at some point, then we have to examine the possibility that we live inside such a universe. And, on a truly infinite timeline, we might expect an almost infinite number of simulations to arise from an almost infinite number or civilizations -- and indeed, a sophisticated-enough simulation might be able to let its simulated denizens themselves run universal simulations, and at that point all bets are officially off." (Slashdot)

Are we a simulation..?

Not as astounding
as it may seem..
Consciousness rises
in the form
of mind
with body and world
made of mind..

Infinite Consciousness
not infinite time
contains the multitude
of possible simulations
to be made of Itself..

Each of us
as our Real self
named as Consciousness
dreams at night
perceives in day
the simulations
 these our creations

Our experience of space-time is that of a continuous object, without gaps or discontinuities, just as it is described by classical physics. For some quantum gravity models however, the texture of space-time is "granular" at tiny scales (below the so-called Planck scale, 10-33 cm), as if it were a variable mesh of solids and voids (or a complex foam). One of the great problems of physics today is to understand the passage from a continuous to a discrete description of spacetime: is there an abrupt change or is there gradual transition? Where does the change occur?

The separation between one world and the other creates problems for physicists: for example, how can we describe gravity - explained so well by classical physics - according to quantum mechanics? Quantum gravity is in fact a field of study in which no consolidated and shared theories exist as yet. There are, however, "scenarios", which offer possible interpretations of quantum gravity subject to different constraints, and which await experimental confirmation or confutation.

One of the problems to be solved in this respect is that if space-time is granular beyond a certain scale it means that there is a "basic scale", a fundamental unit that cannot be broken down into anything smaller, a hypothesis that clashes with Einstein's theory of special relativity.

Imagine holding a ruler in one hand: according to special relativity, to an observer moving in a straight line at a constant speed (close to the speed of light) relative to you, the ruler would appear shorter. But what happens if the ruler has the length of the fundamental scale? For special relativity, the ruler would still appear shorter than this unit of measurement. Special relativity is therefore clearly incompatible with the introduction of a basic graininess of spacetime. Suggesting the existence of this basic scale, say the physicists, means to violate Lorentz invariance, the fundamental tenet of special relativity.  (The Daily Galaxy)

Thought for the day.......

Thought for the day....... "We are completely unaware of our true nature because we identify ourselves with our body, our emotions and our thoughts, thus losing sight of our unchanging centre, which is pure consciousness. When we return to our true nature, our thoughts and perceptions no longer appear as modifications of a single substance, they come into being and subside like waves of the ocean." Jean Klein    

The Real revolution

The Real revolution

Is it simply
a matter of perception
of thought
of sensing..?
Of sudden realization
that these forms
of Knowing
are all one
making up
our Real identity..?
The revolution
starts in each of us
A teaching
not taught but
of a sudden
seeing the light...



 The rectangular screen
I see on the iPhone
is the screen upon which
multitudes of images appear
two dimensions on display
pretending as three..
Three dimensions
 assumed for decades
as reality out there
perceived from within..
But now in our time
dimensions diminish
and we discover
our true Nature
abides in joy
when we recognize
dimensionless I am..!

Doing things Now

Doing things Now

That is the way in which
all things are done
whether realized or not..
Our experience occurs only Now..
But somehow this realization
wakes to a happiness
the goal of our searching..
The search attended to
an illusion of time
past and future
and a suffering edge
lying outside of the Now
we have found...

Let it flow

Let it flow

Going with the flow
is the advice offered
but do we really
identify with this stream..?
Or find more fulfilling
to let it flow
within my stillness
experiencing the freedom
of the  flow
the river never the same
coming and going
flowing in what
I am...

Matter as such..

Matter as such

The breatharians claim

of living on light
abandonment of water and food
the matter seeming to support
the life we have always known..
A shocking claim to our hearing
and most often dismissed..
What message might we find
lying beneath 
shouting for our attention today..
Are food and drink
simply expressing Light
assuming a form 
in and as

STRETCH…April 18, 2016, Myron Stratton Home
Host:  Charlie Coon  (

Comments of film-maker, P. A. Straubinger: 

The prevailing consensus of mainstream science, that rules our western society is, that the mind, the soul, the spirit are an epiphenomen of our biological brain activity - nothing more. We are complex `machines` that produce as a side effect, thoughts and emotions. I think this mechanistic view of the world is not only outdated and harmful to our nature - but it is also not holding up to reality and serious scientfic examination  To make a long story short: The mechanistic-materialistic view in our world is an outdated philosophy of nature - but it gives the false security that we understand our world. Questioning this security is, in my opinion, the reason for the violent rejection of my film which has not been funded in plausible arguments but in ideological beliefs.

Of course this is my personal view.

You have to decide yourself what to believe. And first you should hear both sides of the discussion and as many arguments as possible.

Some critics claimed my film would be `complete nonsense` a `masterpiece of manipulation` or a `pseudo-documentary`. Media always shows a more or less subjective view and when you have to edit 200 hours of raw footage to 90 minutes of film, like I did, there is a lot of information you have to leave out! I tried my best to deliver a truthful concentrate of my many years of research. But, of course, truthfullness is not the same as the truth. So let´s have an open look at the different arguments and questions from the skeptics side.

Max Planck, Nobel Prize Laureate and pioneer of modern physics also questioned the materialistic worldview:

"There is no matter as such. All matter originates and exists only by virtue of a force which brings the particle of an atom to vibration. We must assume behind this force the existence of a conscious and intelligent mind. This mind is the matrix of all matter."

"Spirituality" (Group for Understanding)

Group for Understanding
April 20, 2016, 9:00 to 10:30 AM
Colorado Springs Senior Center

Topic: "Spirituality"


1.  What is it? To you?
2.  What is it to our culture?
3.  How related to religion?
4.  Is it necessarily mystical?
5.  Do the quotes help?

“A human being is part of the whole, called by us ‘universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separate from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.
The true value of a human being is determined primarily by the measure and the sense in which he has attained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive.”
~Albert Einstein, The World as I See It, 1934

Image and Likeness

The awesome and even presumptuous message of divinization is supported by Genesis 1:27 where we are told that we are "created in the image and likeness of God." Many tomes of theology have been written to clarify this quote. The word "image" describes our objective DNA that marks us as creatures of God from the very beginning. It is the Holy Spirit living within us as a totally gratuitous gift from the moment of our conception. "Likeness" is our personal appropriation and gradual realization of this utterly free gift of the image of God. We all have the same objective gift, but how we subjectively say yes to it is quite different. We already have image; we choose likeness. 
(Richard Rohr, Meditation, April 15th, 2016))

Thought for the day....... "As long as I am this or that, or have this or that, I am not all things and I have not all things. Become pure till you neither are nor have either this or that; then you are omnipresent and, being neither this nor that, are all things."  
--Meister Eckhart

“I’ve been operating according to the idea that it is almost impossible to let go of mental patterns that operate unconsciously and that I have to know such a pattern of thinking first in order to let go of it and abide in my true nature. Leave all those mental habits and patterns alone. The self that is apparently operating, that seems to know these patterns and that would ‘let go of them’ is itself simply one such pattern. These patterns of thinking and feeling have taken their shape, over the years, from the belief that we are a separate self, without our making any particular effort. In just the same way, as our experiential conviction that we are not a limited, located self deepens, so our thoughts, feelings and subsequent behaviour will slowly, effortlessly and naturally realign themselves with this new understanding."

A lifestory

A lifestory 

I am the body
I am the mind
this is youth's discovery
an ego identification:
I am unique and separate
expressed with enthusiasm..
For most this seems
as a lifetime identity..
But for some
and potentially for all
a shock of falseness
breaks into youth's dream:
I am not the body
not the mind
I am transparent
as Awareness..
This is new birth
waking to reality
as it is here and now
and always has been..
Now as Awareness
I pervade all
I All...

Serving two masters

Serving two masters

With a realization
of non dual truth
of one not two
or simply not two
our true identity
is discovered..
Without this waking
to our true nature
our lives are shaped
by dualistic pursuits..
And these pursuits
are endless searches
for the happiness
only waking discovers..

Monday, April 18th, 2016, 3:00 to 5:00 PM
Myron Stratton Home
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Facilitator: Charlie Coon
No cost...

In this program we will view and discuss the intriguing 
video described below..

Is it possible that human beings can survive without food and fluid over many years and live on light alone? Are we confronted with quackery or with forgotten knowledge? IN THE BEGINNING THERE WAS LIGHT follows the phenomenon which only a few in our Western world are aware of, as the topic has been either ignored or ridiculed by the media. The picture deals with human beings who allegedly can survive without food and fluid, over weeks, years and even decades. Most people would spontaneously say that this just cannot be. It’s impossible! But based on certified reports of personal experiences, interviews and scientifically documented laboratory experiments, the picture follows the phenomenon of "living on light” aka "breatharianism”. As incredible as it may be, there seems to be evidence that there are people living today and some existing thousands of years back too, who do not need food either to live or to sustain their metabolism. They live on "light" alone. Depending on the tradition this "light" may be called PRANA, CHI or ORGON. There are many names for this mysterious energy.

Protagonists: Jasmuheen, Mataji Prahlad Jani, Prof. Rupert Sheldrake, Prof. Amit Goswami, Dean Radin, Prof. Robert Jahn, Dr. Ruediger Dahlke, Prof. Brian Josephson, Brenda Dunne, Prof. Gerhard Hacker, Qi Duan Li, Master You Xuande, Omsa Rohrmoser, Zinaida Baranova, Master Master Tianying and many more....

We Observe

We Observe

Creating as we observe
giving our attention
to the world as it is clothed in
such multiplicity..
Our perceiving seems passive
but we are taught that
perceiving precedes perception
and perceiving simply names
Still we hesitate
after decades of seeing
in our conventional way:
the world out there is separate
from myself in my body..
Yet the new Understanding
may mean we are reaching
the final frontier of discovery:
We are creators
observation is creation..
Are we soon to experience
a wondrous truth...?

I am Aware

I am Aware 

of the old fencepost
of the dusty road on my left
of the cliffs laced with evergreens
I am Aware..
These are colors I crossed
on my afternoon walk
a multiplicity of forms
first with I as witness
but then as Aware
and a realization:
these are my projections
and made of
my being Aware...

Listening to the notes

Listening to the notes

as they come into Silence
I keep a soft focus
on the notes..
For now I am not the notes
I am the Silence
as the notes appear
in sequence and multiplicity
in the Silence..
Silence has taken a brief form
soon to melt
leaving only Silence...

Awareness Meditation

Awareness Meditation


I am..

I am Aware..

I am Aware that I am Aware..

Stay there..

Abide there..


I am Awareness..

I am Luminous..

I am Infinite..

I have no limits..

I am Transparent..

This is my true Self..


As objects return:

thoughts, sensations, perceptions

feel these as within Awareness..

Separate still yet One..

And finally know these

as made of Awareness...

Our Awareness is Here

Our Awareness is Here 
this is the experience
available to all
right Now..
After eliminating our
many false identities
which are the names
our minds can grasp
the question arises:
What remains..?
And the mind goes limp
and with surrender
falls into the light
which we truly are..
This Awareness is
the God in which
we live and more
out of which we 
are made..

Moon polarityinplay

Moon polarityinplay

Without the Moon, there would be no life on Earth, French scientists claim.

The gravitational push-pull of the Moon on iron deep inside Earth keeps it hot and molten. And a liquid core is needed to generate a magnetic field, which forms a protective shield against blasts of particles from the Sun.

Denis Andrault from Blaise Pascal University in Clermont-Ferrand, France, and colleagues propose the Earth's heated interior should have dropped by about 3,000 ºC over the past four billion years or so, but has instead remained almost constant – all because of the Moon.

Their story, published in Earth and Planetary Science Letters, begins around 4.3 billion years ago, or 60 million years after the Earth's birth. (COSMOS Magazine)
