Coping: A “Savings Plan” for the AfterLife

The more I read in the area of quantum mechanics, the more it becomes clear to me that while science and religion were once on divergent courses, since the revolution in quantum theory beginning in the 1920’s, they are once again headed towards convergence.

This is not to suggest that you should throw off any notions you presently hold about how the AfterLife part of existence works. But there are a few challenging facts of physics that you might wish to consider along side whatever your “faith of choice” is.

Everyone gets to choose what they believe, of course, but in general the “Ten Commandments” are a good starting place. Toss in “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you…” and you’ve got a passable code of behaviors.

Other cultures (and belief systems) hold to the same general idea. But if I have a quarrel with religion at all, it is this toll road system they employ.

Admittedly, I am no fan of taking public money, public bonding authority, building a road, and then selling it off to a (foreign) corporation which will then exact additional tribute for its operation over its operating lifespan.

The way I look at it is the religions largely do the same thing. I would point to the sorry truth in the Led Zeppelin song which advises us to be on the lookout for people who’ve missed the point: “…and she’s buying a stairway to Heaven…

The physics and religion convergence is working toward the idea that the “essence” of who we are/is/were is a kind of “energy.””

Since it is considered a rule that “Energy can neither be created, nor destroyed” (but it can change form), we need to consider (as we did tongue-in-cheek in this week’s piece that asked “How much does work weigh?”) what energy is this Observer and what sort of energy is it?

It’s a powerful question.

The role of the Observer part of our persona is critical because quantum mechanics convincingly demonstrates that our “expectations co-create” the world.

Getting to “know” your Higher Self is really a life-long job. Sadly, I didn’t spend enough time on the quest myself, although I was already asking questions about it in my early twenties.

The most fascinating part of my personal voyage has been learning how my personal Observer puts things together and rehashes them – making projections about the future – in the dream-state.

I’ve had so many “flashes of future” in the dream-state that they are now difficult to count.

Nevertheless, if there is a “missing Commandment” from the Christian/Judeo approach (both operate “toll roads,” BTW) it is the critical Rule “Control Thy Inputs.”

An even assessment of Life Since Marconi – LSM – suggests we are in a new Era in terms of human development and evolution. Sure, BC or B.C.E. dating is will understood, as is AD or C.E. date referencing. Most, though miss the point that the C.E. period ran off the rails when the runaway train of ideas began when we entered the L.S.M. period.

One of the reasons scholarship was so different in the evolutionary days of the American Melting Pot than it is today is the shear amount of available information. At the time of Plymouth Rock, almost all of what was known – and this is since the beginning of history – would have fit on a couple of high capacity SD cards as text files.

The explosion of theory, fact, mathematics and so forth continues to gain momentum. But we have a terrible trade-off in play along with it. While great minds (I like Thomas Jefferson’s) once had the lack of distraction that enable high degrees of focus on problems, we see modern-day officeholders distracted by terrible electronic noise.

That’s where the large flow of Trummer (or chest-Twrumping) comes from. Ben Franklin had times where he had a couple of weeks of downtime, like when crossing the Atlantic to visit with France. No INMARSAT, no phones, no faxes, no texting, hence an amazing ability to focus on the one-thing-at-hand and manage it.

Which gets us back to out topic this morning: Controlling your inputs and “idea collecting”
for the AfterLife.

We have a pretty good idea what the AfterLife will be like. I have read hundreds of accounts of it and if you haven’t, I would suggest you go back to Dr. Raymond Moody’s “Life After Life” which came out in about 1976.

The research is ongoing, even today. But it seems to be very much like “dreams on steroids.” Largely defined around the edges by religious belief held by a dying person, across cultures, the process is very similar. There’s a moment of death/darkness. Then you see a light and move toward it. A feeling of overwhelming warmth and love spreads through you. There may be a Life Review – where that “saw my life flash before me” seems to come from. And then there is a Joyous Place.
It’s not a toll road, by most accounts. You may see (project?) a religious figure, though.

Which is why dreams are so important to me. I’ve come to view them as a kind of “Practice for the AfterLife.”

Like the “life review” part of the Near Death Experience (NDE) they involve how you sort out what you see, internalize, and hold in your heart.

A fine point of language here: Although the term Near Death Experience (NDE) is popular, it is a bit misleading. When you read enough reports it becomes clear that what has really happened is “Dead And Back Again.” DABA would be a better way to put it, methinks.

Over the second half of my life, as I was working towards this, I realized that if I didn’t want to carry “bad stuff” in my head, I needed to turn off those inputs and “keep it real.”

The human mind seems to call to itself that which it thinks about most. It’s a core principle of “as above, so below” but it also works on negative forces, too. Those who plan and plot violence almost magically call [guess what?] into their lives.

Thursday morning I had a very disturbing “look-ahead” dream into a world going to global war. It was from the vantage point of one of my children and it was in the foothills of the Washington Cascade range. Off to the west of the foothills, the flash of nuclear weapons was happening and mass death was coming…

Since I don’t put that kind of thinking into my head, like in prescient car accidents, “knowing” of the Gulf oil disaster in advance, or having foreknowledge of other events, I place this one solidly in the “look-ahead” pile.

It ain’t pretty.

So the reason for sharing this discussion this morning is simple.

Please consider adopting the 11th Commandment which is simply “Control Your Inputs.”

For it we do not, and if enough of us hav e “bad future” programmed into our Observers, when the time comes, we will flip the world into something we very much DON’T want to experience.

The future of the world is in our dreams.  “Day Residue” – crap in media – is constantly trying to infiltrate that personal holy space.

Thank you.

And have a great weekend,

Coping: A “Savings Plan” for the AfterLife — 24 Comments

  1. Control your inputs……

    “Day residue — crap in media — is constantly trying to infiltrate that personal holy space”.

    You betcha. I’m an empath, and I know how much I am affected by sound, emotion and imagery.

    Almost my entire intake of news is via reading. I can scan quickly. Most news writing is fluff anyway. This is the least emotionally invasive way to stay somewhat current on world social trends and events.

    I choose my extremely limited movie and TV watching after getting a feel for the material from reviews and short clips. Characters “come to live with me for awhile”. Some are a great benefit — they expand my perspective and I allow them to become part of me.

    There are a handful of fictional characters that have been some of the most powerful influences of my life. I doubt I’m the only one so affected — I’m just fully cognizant of it and willing to admit it to myself.

    “The future of the world is in our dreams”

    Spinning off from what I just said above, allow me to restate your comment to: The future of the world is in the stories with which we become emotionally imprinted.

    “Control Your Inputs” indeed.

  2. Hi George

    If you haven’t already, you may enjoy Neale Donald Walsch’s Conversations With God books. I found them to be mind-opening.

  3. Mr. Ure, you have quite a diverse group in the commentary section on this article. For me, I studied for years in search of truth, and believed I had found it. After flat-lining for 17 minutes, I realized I needed work within my mind and heart. Input is important in comparing ancient/modern writings against each other to find the threads that were missed by those who mistake their own philosophies of man for scripture. I still believe I have found the purpose of our existence, and the hope of a future in a divine nature. I believe there is no progression without a toll on our will. This is the rub for many.

  4. Hi George, Have you read Love Without End, by Glenda Green? I think you will find it interesting. Please don’t judge this book by it’s cover. Take time to look at the table of contents.

  5. Having been through an NDE, George, it seems to me our “timeline”, “hologram” or whatever you want to call our contemporary situation, jumped the tracks to an alternate reality on 9/11. Since then, we’ve seen some strange occurrences,
    including the invasion of Iraq, Trump actually getting elected, the strange Superbowl results this year, and lastly, the unprecedented foul-up at the Oscars. I think you’re right…we need “happy thoughts” about the now!

  6. George it is sublime articles like this that I check your free site every day. You usually have something thought provoking, but “control your inputs” cuts to the core of existence as we perceive it in this world. Thank you!

    • Thank you – I am honored. I will do more on the number of dead in WW II and the size of the baby boom in Peoplenomics tomorrow. Running numbers now..

  7. Well said.

    A saying I learned in Unity Church, “There is no spot where God is not”. Because we live in separate bodies, we think God is separate too. As David Wilcock says, “There is only one of us here”.

    I have the blessing of remembering pieces of my past lives. I am 71 and in my most recent lifetime, died in the London blitz and obviously returned fairly quickly. I have had psychic readings done and been told that I have been “ordinary” mostly, but a king once.

    The esoteric philosophy in the Ancient Wisdom teaches each lifetime is like a day in school. All subjects not passed are repeated until learned.

    As Jimi Hendrix said, “Are you experienced?” I propose that we are like God’s taste buds and nerve endings through which God experiences Itself and grows.

    • Two points: The poete Shelly put it well: “I am the Eye through which the Universe Beholds Itself and knows it is Divine.”
      Also, the statistics seem to indicate that the turn-around time for returning from past lives is about4-5 years.

      And that leaves my brain absolutely smoking and on fire, for that would explain the Baby Boom and other demographic features of life, since all those people who died in war were ABOUT the same as the additional loading on PlanEarth from the Baby boom bubble WHICH PEAKED ABOUT 5 YEARS AFTER THE END OF wow ii…

      numbers DON’T LIE, BUT WE SURE DELUDE OURSELVES, HUH?

      • Ive read in times of war, with so many males being killed in battles, there will be more males born in the years just after the war ends, to make up for the loss.

  8. Don’t forget the numerous accounts of previous lives that have accumulated over time, especially the ones in which people have verifiable knowledge of their previous lives.

    Between Chris T.’s group’s work and Mauro Biglino’s arriving at the same basic conclusion independently it’s all but blatantly obvious that history isn’t nearly what the status quo would have us believe. There is a “physical” god, probably gods, (remember “any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic” – Asimov) and a spiritual world apart from ours but intimately entwined with our dimensional existence and led by a Supreme God, whether an actual “being” or something else. In any case things got seriously mixed up whenever the early Catholic Church hijacked and wrote its own version of Jesus’ life and philosophy. Protestantism is really just Catholic lite. I much prefer Edgar Cayce’s insights that his biographer, Thomas Sugru, wrote in the section entitled “Edgar Cayce’s Philosophy”. That alone is worth reading in that book if nothing else.

    Prayer does fit into this picture, somehow, so I haven’t given up on it. I think it provides “The Listeners” a regular update on our mental condition here below, but that’s just me thinking out loud.

    • It was Arthur C. Clarke’s law, actually. Asimov was responsible for the Three Laws of Robotics.

      • The first time I’d seen that quote it was attributed to H. L. Menchen. Wiki does give it to Clark, you’re right, but it seems to have been claimed by or attibuted to several.

  9. Dang George, but you went straight to the high diving board and went for it, didn’t you?

    There are many things that cannot be explained simply. Many things that can only be supposed (physics). Many more things that we cannot even experience due to our lack of the correct sensors (EM). However, you are correct in controlling input, to a point. The other end of this anaconda is: What exactly is reality?

    Whatever we are experiencing is completely controlled by what we do with our sensory inputs and their limitations. And that is our ‘reality’. Our own will will always be projecting itself into our images of others and our reality, because our will is very much a part of what makes each of us sentient.

    This is reflected in what George says here, in not wanting to let bad “inputs” inside your head. I will suggest that you can let these “inputs” inside, but it is likely better to store them, and not project them into your own reality.

    Fear is the single biggest distortion problem within each of our realities. I would suggest exercising letting go of unnecessary fear as the number one way to experience our world better. How you do that is an entire exploration in itself, but one of the benefits of this is that “fear porn” and much of what passes for ethics today will suddenly become far less important.

    Truth is what we agree on, and that is a strange enough concept to absorb. How it is communicated between us is another entire book.

  10. As a Transformational Breath (TM) intern, married to a certifiied Facilitator, I have met dozens of people who have experiences beyond the dream state in connecting to higher consciousness, clearing restricted breathing patterns, clearing unneeded subconscious patterns, oxygenating the body to a degree not experienced since childhood, if ever, and literally crying for joy, almost on demand.

    I have met 5 Ayahuasca experiencers, including a person who earns his living leading paid expeditions to the jungle to take it, all of whom agreed that Transformational Breath (TM) is more powerful, yet drug free and “cleaner”. So if one wants to explore higher consciousness, afterlife, etc., while clearng blockages in this life, I suggest doing a search on Transformationalbreath.com. try an introductory workshop and experience for yourself what there are no words to describe. One side effect I have seen is that experienced practitioners lose their fear of death, and transition from faith based to experience based spiritual practices. My teenaged son said that if he was told he had 2 hours to live, he would spend one hour doing the Breath and one saying goodbye, or, more accurately, see you later.

    • “Experienced practitioners lose their fear of death”. Why only practicioners, or more to the point, “experienced practicioners”? Is the assumption that humans fear death & need help to get over it? All that is needed to allay any fear of death is a thinking mind & a happy disposition.

  11. Mr. Ure, have you read any JK Knight? She channels “”Ramtha and he explaines were we all started from and that each one of us live forever with no consequences of our actions on earth while we are in body form. Which answers for me why some segment of the population is so evil and have no fear of the judgement at the end of life.

    • Don’t worry there is a judgement. If there wasn’t we would all live to eat drink and be merry. Then the whole world would be evil. There are consequences for your actions try killing somebody and see what happens you’ll be in jail

    • very sorry but JK Knight and Ramtha have been proven to be full of chit and out for mostly money a long time ago. Try truth and reality and stay away from the ‘cult’ leaders. good luck

      • Edgar Cayce has not been debunked or disproven, some of his predictions either didn’t materialize or they materialized later, but overall he gets a 9.7 out of 10.

        Read his readings on Atlantis, if that won’t blow your mind and patents nothing will. Those readings tie into ancient societies including the race that built the pyramids in Egypt and around the world. Those readings are a treasure trove of information and worth every effort to understand them. He also gave readings on the times that Jesus lived in; once you’ve read Edgar Cayce on Jesus, you will never fall for the BS that he didn’t walk the earth. We are living in very exciting times. He said that the time and times and half times are at an end…yep…
