I don’t know if this is really a “woo-woo” topic, an extension of what will be on  Peoplenomics tomorrow, where we talk about grassroots dispersed manufacturing (as a disruptive technology)… Or, whether it’s another chapter in my book  Psychocartography.

However it arises, the  topic du jour today is  fear.

Let’s begin with who we are:

Maybe it sounds a little “nuts” when you hear it for the first time.  But, everything I’ve found  (and it’s in all major religions, too) points to each of us as being made of a soul-stuff of some kind.  Think of it as “energy of a self” if “soul” gets uncomfortably close to religion for you.

Science has made a science out of  debunking religions.  Except for  one small thing.

Conservation of Energy

You see, each of us has two kinds of energy.

There is the “chemical breakdown” kind…the sort that arises from glycation of foods, feeding muscles, and even nourishing the brain.

Yet in the “brain” is this small bit of “mind energy.” That’s where things like the next great lines of C# code come from, or going back a ways, the Pyramids.  The next live-saving vaccines.  The free-energy breakthrough.

The sweat and glycation did the physical work.  But the “mind-stuff” – ah, that’s the energy to be pondering.

It’s the most powerful substance there is, this personal energy.  Why we admire, why we fear, what drives our passions, and gives us peace.

Our biggest shared problem on this playing field?  Those who use knowledge of this doman to dominate and remain Masters of Humans.

Fear’s the tool, you see.

Their problem? Keep 7.2-billion People in Line

Let me step back for a moment and speak directly about dreams.  Because most people (though not all) have dreams they occasionally remember.

The whole point of my book Psychocartography was to learn to transit between your second life (since we all have one, plus any of the many other worlds we can visit in our dreams.

When you get to be pretty good at transiting between the waking and ricxh, nourishing sleep (where the dream Realms are), an odd thing happens:  You (almost automatically) become less fearful.

You overcome your “fear of fear” if that makes any sense.  Where does the fear go?  It’s not too complicated.  Anyone can follow.

People Make Their Own Prisons

Accomplished dreamers (a class which includes certain religious pursuits, monks, adepts, shamans, and the active dreamers who map) figure out after a while that what controls people (here in the nominal waking world) is fear.

It wouldn’t do if everyone on the planet woke up one morning and no longer had fear.  Because fear is the basis of power.  To dominate and subjugate is the path of power. Armies and taxes, taboos, and orders, laws, and conventions.  None of it but a shell, each with some kind of threat lurking behind it.  Giving it “power” through fear.

The world has evolved a marvelous Grid Of Fear that is so all-pervasive, almost no one thinks about it.

But it’s there,howefer, often in a subtle way,  but always trying to box us in.  To keep us all afraid of going “outside the box” – and by extension, into the powerful worlds of our dreams. To cut us off from The Source of All Knowledge, and to keep us “under control.”

Paying taxes, accepting of an exploitive culture and economic system, while at the same time, blocking our “escape to larger Truths” which are there available by simply working on our dreams.  We all get to be shamans, should we choose.

Because the answers are “all in there” – but most have been conditioned not to look.  “Me a shaman?” We’re programmed unworthy by the corrupt systems of the world.

Dare we let the secret out in 2020?  That?   We’re all powerful spirits – not just bag of blood and bones worthy only of toil to pay tribute..

Mechanics of the Grid Of Fear

Pause for a few moments and imagine how the world would be if we ALL renounced evil at every level.  And that includes the Most Evil of all – Fear.

Fear has been grown and nurtured.  By, among others, Hollywood.  The “selling of fear” – the murder movies and those with gratuitous violence – serve a fascinating “dual role” for the controllers in power.

Their main function is to give rise to “nightmares” – and the better a “horror film” is, the more it leaves scattered, grotesque incomplete thought fragments floating around in your head.

These are main distractions from powerful dreams.  Because a major role of dreaming is to tie up loose ends and ‘finish that thought…”

When you take-in enough poisonous, venomous and vile crap during waking, it lurks around the edges of mind only to spring-forth as you  try to enter dream states.

Nightmares are why some people never dream well.  It’s a feedback loop – causing people to not want to remember.  And now the Fear Grid is complete.  Less dreams, more horror…more horror?  More drama, more money…oh, year, and more raw naked power manipulating the sleepers who can’t dream….

The accomplished dreamer is not immune.  But, with practice, you can declare your power when you are asleep.  Each of us in all-powerful, yet most are afraid to claim what’s theirs.  They abdicate and in the power vacuum, evil comes to the fill the void.

Once you claim power – absolutely and totally, your fear of dreams begins to lessen.  Old long-suppressed thoughts are finally addressed.  your mind heals and in doing so, opens.

And as this happens, your dreams become more like adventures.  Then, best of all, come the dreams where you learn.  Oh my God, the glory of learning in your “other worlds” is an almost indescribable experience.  Bit…fragments…notions…can follow you back to waking. You become a bridge.

More important?  As you “lose the fear” of the dream realms, you find yourself (back here) in the waking world, able to tap into larger parts of your waking mind, never before fully plumbed.  You end up growing.

It comes to pass that we’re all like those birds that have landed on a single wire that runs north and south.  When born, it’s like we’re all facing East.  Before us, very much as in Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” we looking eastward at all times.  For this is our waking state.

“Pay attention!”  Who has not heard it?  It’s the Fear Grid – keeping us from being “totally connected.”  Keeping us focused on rote learning instead of knowledge-seeking.  Keeping us aimed with our economic masters want, without regard to our humanity and the limitations of resource.

The world is run by people in power who, consciously or otherwise, use Fear to maintain their control.  What better way to keep people under control than fail to remind them that we will all “fly off” at some point and “head out West again.  Happens when we die, reminds Shakespeare (in McBeth).

Point of living is not to collect fear, but to renounce it and all other evil. More than just renounced, though, we need to claim.  You ARE an unlimited person.  When was the last time someone reminded you?.

No, as long as the horror and inhumanity is large enough, we all stare – aghast – to the East.  We gobble up lowest common denominator programming and gratuitous violence because it is “sold” to us out East in the waking state..

The Me-Me’s of social have their own kind of fear-mongering.  Mob violence of the digital sort.  It’s an amusing playing field.  You just need to avoid the landmines of evil.

What I’m proposing for 2020 as a “class project” for UrbanSurvival readers, is that we all allocate a bit of 2020 to conquerring fear this year..

Going into our dream realms and learning along the way to become a Co-Creator with the Universe.  Grabbing onto – claiming as our inalienable own –  that unlimited power which is our birthrights, not as mere humans but at something mores.  That south-stuff.

As a long-time reporter it became clear to me long ago that I could not deny the reality of this terrible world.  Nor could I deny the processes in place that keep our fears before us.  Booze didn’t wash it off, nor did drugs…

But by strictly controlling my inputs, living a bit apart from people who aren’t in harmony with us… and by being a faithful understudy to the powerful Force that rules all, one can learn to keep a “foot out the door.” And not buy into the lies, demons, and bloodshed held up before us. to invoke fear.

As sick a perversion of business models it is, it continues to work.

Metaphorically, then?  What kind of birds are these, on the phone wire, who – held raptly attentive staring East by the daily horrors and fear – choose not to fly West each night to roost in other Realms and to study with the Great Creator?

Dumb ones.

If we can change even a few people – helping them to “break the trance of horror and inhumanity” then, come this time nest year, perhaps a few more people than just you and I will hold that marvelous truth and act without fear having renounced the evil and all its works, and all its ways.

Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, Life’s is….in the other direction,

Write when you wake up.
