Prepping: Unlimited Personal Energy

In a Life-or-Death situation, here’s a useful tool:  Being able to “tap-in” to almost unlimited energy.  While, at the same time, remaining clear-headed and detached from what’s going on around you.  With this skill you can make clear-headed decisions with some immunity from calamitous events.

This is the mental dimension of prepping.  We talk about the physical all the damn time.  Water, power, food, garden, solar, plus a zillion shop tools and some of the finest classic ham radio gear out there.  First-aid kit?  Go-Bags?  Sure, sure.

But strip it all away and the most important part of prepping is?  Getting “between the ears” right.  People – media-saturated to the point of distraction – forget here on the “Waking War Front” – that life is a big movie.

And for better, or worse, YOU are the director.  What you experience is wholly the result of your “scenes” and the “actors” and backdrops you’ve selected.

“Where Are You Coming From?”

Cocktail hour.  Director’s cut.

Every afternoon, about 4 PM, my wife Elaine and I kick-back and have a cold (adult) beverage, or two. When you’re over 70 (as we are), it’s important to take time to enjoy each other.  We talk about the insane-sounding projects here.  Time travel experiments, “light crowns”, “speed crowns”. and the next hare-brained idea “infinity bands” that are now in the works.

If the weather is cool (under 83F, or so) cocktails are on the screen porch.  From there, the panorama at our feet in the lounge chairs is like a state park.  Fields, trees, deer wandering through.  Red-tail hawks picking-off the odd intruders onto their killing fields.

If it’s hotter, the afternoon “hang-out” is in the “180-Room” – named for its 210-degree view.  Don’t ask about the math, lol.  (This room is special to us; constructed out of recycled windows from our house-rehab.)

One afternoon last week (on the screen porch), Elaine asked an important question:

“Where does all your personal energy come from?  You’re the most energetic person I’ve ever met…”

My normal response would be the “shrug the shoulders” thing.  This time, however, some “truth” came out.  You might find some use for it.

A Life Review When You Die

Sure. Life is a series of problems.  BUT the Big one?  We all Die.

I’ve tried to “size it up” before in other articles.  Like  “The Suitcase Between Your Ears.” but that was on the Peoplenomics subscriber side.  Think of this note as a Father’s Day freebie.  Now, take a deep breath and follow along….

There’s been a lot of research into Death and Dying.  The most-remarkable revelations about dying – for me, anyway – came when I interviewed Dr. Raymond Moody.  Mid 1970’s.  He was on a book tour just after publishing his classic “Life After Life.”  This was real data.  It is about what people were bringing back AFTER dying. When Medicine has saved the day.  From this wellspring, the notion of Near Death Experiences or NDE’s arrived.

That set-off a 40-year storm of more research.  Because Moody’s research held that rarest of qualities cynical big city news directors seldom find:  The “ring of Truth.”

“My Life Flashed Before My Eyes!”

It’s NOT just an old saying.  There is data.  Lots of data.

In a way, I was ready.  My childhood asthma had been so bad that a few times I’d been taken to the hospital.  More than once, there was a glimpse of an inviting blue…..

In thousands upon thousands of case-studies – when people have died and have been resuscitated – there are repeating common elements.  One in particular appearing cross-culturally really stuck with me.  It’s the process of a “Life Review.”

The research mapped it out this way:  As you die, a sequence begins – often accompanied by a humming noise.  Many report a clear memory of a “tube of bluish-white light” – a tube or stairway – that they’re drawn to.  Following this, a Life Review takes place.  There’s also a “presence” – often a male figure – who may appear as a religious prophet.  Depending on a person’s religious beliefs while alive.

The life review – in seconds – “plays back” not only your whole life (from the standpoint of your experience of it) but also from the perspective of others who were affected by your interactions.  There’s no “assignment of guilt or kudos” – but it’s stands (*as “filmed”) for the harshest judge there is – (YOU) – to assess.

Criticism-self-criticism, kind of thing.

It changes people when they are brought back to life by modern medicine… They become unafraid of Death.  Understand more clearly the role of Love.  Their lives from then on – in about half of cases – are remarkably changed.  That’s data.

What Modern Religions Miss

The Ure’s don’t do a “church thing.”  I’d label myself “very spiritual, but not a “joiner.”

Mainly because most institutions at some level are “selling subservience” or running a “spiritual shakedown” operation.  Few get into real “problem-solving” and marrying the oldest human learnings (of religious texts) with the modern data retrieved thanks to medicine.  A lot of “prophet positioning” – and sure, we “get it.”  Not our cup of tea, though.  Not our film.

Over the years, I’ve evolved a different approach to spiritual matters – based on the data.

Your Director’s Viewpoint: Life’s a Movie!

It’s childishly simple – yet it took me many years to figure out – and then “get right.”  Let me lead you – I hope logically – down this “alternative spiritual path.”

It begins every morning in bed – when you first wake up in the morning.

Three-step process:

  1. Give thanks for another day.  You have been allowed back on “Movie Set Earth.” Where Your Job Today is to film another “episode of your Life.”  What do you want to see at the “Life Review” when you Die?  What’s the plot, featured scene of TODAY?  After all, you do want the Life Review process to reveal a great movie, right?
  2. Contemplate  Your “Director’s View”:  “Hmmm…here I am.  A whole day to ‘film.’  So what kind of episode would fit in here? I like heroic scenes in my Life Movie.  Will I face-down a learning challenge?  Joyfully solve a Relationship challenge?  Or, do we break for a documentary moment where you just watch for what “The Studio [God or Universe]” sends out from props.”  There are daily deliveries – which is cool in itself!  Or, is today a chance for fresh interaction with one of the bit players in Your Life?  Is there someone who will do a “walk-on” during this scene in Your Life who will bring a key lesson?  Maybe it’s a mash-up:  a little of this and a tablespoon of that.
  3. Check for Messages from “The Studio” or the Chief Director.  Often, there’s a hint about “next episodes” from my Dream Realm adventures in my “other Life.”  The one I visit while sleeping.  There, I learned that one of the key reasons for living the waking-state  is to become an “understudy” of the Chief Director.

In other words, we are each empowered to “film” GREAT Life Reviews.  Sadly, not everyone “gets this” so they go off wasting their “film of Life” on really crappy material.

Progression of the “soul” – which is your eternal “Director’s View” – comes from constantly working on your craft of Life Review filming.  The Studio (and Chief Director) provides unlimited resources, too!  Money, other actors, and always sufficiency for what you should be “filming.”

Since we’re all in this BFSOL (Big Film School Of Life), the Big Studio will send in events, other actors, to put us in unforeseen or unusual situations…  At which point you can choose to work in harmony with The Chief Director.  Or not.

I find what works best is “working with The Studio” – going with the flow – rather than trying to “direct my way around the send-in’s.”

Very Personal Excellence 

As you lay in bed, rolling around how you want to “film” the day ahead, a lot of changes come over you.  For me it’s simple this:  Unlimited Energy. Life is a “season” and any day is an “episode.”

There’s filming to do and since you are “detached” a bit now (once you appreciate Life is a Camera), there arises a kind of “channeling of power.”  You’re filing for The Studio.

We don’t need to “join” any political party, ideology, financial strata, or anything of the sort. We’re all “film-makers.”  I’m filming for me.  You are filming for you.

There is a very clear ownership of your upcoming Life Review.  Mine’s an adventure documentary.  The way mine “plays back” involves overcoming lots of personal challenges when young, learning multiple skills and then employing them to benefit myself and others. Staring down Death, a time or two.  Oh, and tapping unlimited power and sharing that.

Prepping “Between the Ears”

In a psychological sense, this is very “freeing.”  

Take, for example, when someone in my life does something intended to “hurt” me.  The Director’s View looks at this “actor” (or situation) as bringing their drama onto MY set.  However, since I am the director (it’s MY life review film, right?), I claim ownership and totally reserve the right to accept or reject any drama that shows up uninvited.

“No, no, no…my Life Review Documentary is not about your drama…so you hang onto that and use it in your own Life Review filming.  I don’t have a place for it in mine...”

This “ownership of the project” – and filming never stops – gives you a very special kind of “power.”

You know what’s even more amazing?  While it’s laying right there – in plain sight – many people refuse to “pick up the camera” and “own it 24/7/365.”  Instead, they allow themselves to be passives in the Great Film of Life not realizing that may be a pretty boring “Life Review” film.  But, who knows, maybe they need to do a “victim role.”  Maybe some souls are just “extras.”

Holding Unlimited Power

Your relationship (being an on-Earth Director) working with The Studio and Chief Director (Universe or God) offers two things you can claim any time you wish.

The first is unlimited power to create.  Get this one right and there may be another life, another script to film…and so forth.  There is never “solitary confinement” for a free spirit.


Oh, boy…let’s avoid the religiosity quicksand, or we will go back to the 325 A.D. Council of Nicaea and the role of Origen of Alexandria and from there get into a hugely complicated discussion of spiritual transmigration versus reincarnation.  

Remember what this little subset of religious  philosophy argument is called?

Metempsychosis is a philosophical term referring to the transmigration of the soul, especially its reincarnation after death. Generally, the term is derived from the context of ancient Greek philosophy, and has been recontextualized by modern philosophers such as Arthur Schopenhauer and Kurt Gödel; otherwise, the term “transmigration” is more appropriate…”

See why we don’t go there?

The second claim you can assert any time is absolute creative control.   It’s YOUR Film.

Waking On the Right Side of Life

On waking, one simply appreciates the enormous power of The Studio – and Chief Director.  Remembering the camera never stops during the day’s filming and to be accepting of any “walk-on’s” that show up.

As a result, by the end of the day’s filming, you’ll have “another good one in the can” for Life Review.  A successful season is made up of great episodes.

Which leaves the final steps (as you’re heading for the poddy and coffee soon after…).  You begin “roughing out the script for the day” – which then becomes a smooth workflow and transition into Day Planning.

Process: {In Your Director’s Mind:}

  • Where did the plot of my Life Review Film leave off yesterday? [Remember]
  • Today is a blank roll of film.  What kind of episode to I want? [Describe]
  • What are today’s main scenes you want to nail today?  [Jot down]
  • What’s the shooting schedule?  [Time blocks]
  • What props (tools, preparation) will each require?  [To-do list before shooting]
  • Which actors need coaching?  [Emails and details plus phone calls]
  • Where  might The Studio or Chief Director send in a “surprise walk-ons???”

This last is fun:  The Studio or Chief Director might send in a traffic accident or a winning lotto ticket.  Just depends on Studio mood (and feedback). The Chief Director runs a balanced film festival.  Everyone is filming!  It’s spectacular to grasp!

I hope you can see how incredibly easy Life is (and plugging into unlimited power helps!) with a Director’s Eye.  And especially unlimited “Studio Backing.”  Jumping out of bed and running 110% all day is the easiest thing in the world.  Can’t speak for yours, but my life is an action-adventure.

The general idea is getting in charge (and owning) your Life [Theme] Film that you film with your mind’s eye.  It totally energizes every waking second.

Remaining consciously plugged-in to the unlimited backing of The Studio and Chief Director is the key action step to “Packing the Suitcase Between Your Ears.”

Now, you have a choice:  Do a “walk-on” here (by posting a comment). OR make this a short segment in your own Episode of Today that you’re filming right now?  (It’s OK to be an “extra” in my “film.”)

All depends what you want on YOUR Life Review roll.

Just don’t forget:  You can see the “rushes” tonight as you roll off to sleep…

  1. For those of you who are considering buying property in Texas, be advised that Texas protection of small landowner rights is nonexistent. Texas routinely allows private and public corporations to run wild with imminent domain for high voltage lines, roads, pipelines, etc, with many of the projects having dubious public benefit. The selection of routes for these projects is used for ethnic political terrorism and shakedowns of landowners. Protection of heritage does not exist in Texas. The review boards are largely nonexistent and the ones that do exist are a farce put on by gangs trolling for victims they can shake down.
    Once the value of the private land has been destroyed by the local gangs and their pet snakes, the local taxing entities continue to tax the remaining now-worthless land at full rate. A piece of land with a 345 KV tower or a large hydrocarbon pipeline running through it is largely unsaleable and less than worthless.
    Oh, but the courts, the courts! Leftist lawyers only represent victims who fit the leftist narrative. Right wing lawyers charge $600+ an hour to run a copy machine. Texas courtrooms are Tammany Hall West.

    • Thanks n____. You saved me a lot of typing! I’ve written our state rep. and Gov. Abbott about them jacking the valuations on our property by 11%+ this year and I’m getting nothing back. Complain and protest all you want, nothing’s going to happen except the autonomous appraisal districts are going to just tell you “We want more”. When the taxing entities have their way taxes go up, when the voters have their way taxes either at least stay the same or go down.” The only thing we can hope for is that the US$ implodes and they’ll leave us alone while they figure out how to get value out of us again.

      • In Oregon, long ago during a spasm of republican control, they instituted a law that limits property tax increases to 3% a year. The people voted for that. A fine example of the referendum system.

      • Bill,
        This is why California has 40 million people. The price you pay is the tax rate you are locked into for the rest of your stay In that home. It can go down in value too if valuations drop as they did in 2009, but it can’t go up.

        And if a person is over the age of 55, they can transfer that Same tax bill to another home they buy. My former next door neighbor bought a house for $67,000 in 1972. Worth $1.8 today. Up until he passed away, his tax was $837 a year .0125 x $67,000. He held that tax rate for over 47 years. Not bad. This is one of many reasons why People stay in California. States with variable property tax rates are tough on retirees with fixed incomes and families with middle Class incomes.

        I sold the home at $1.8. The tax per year now? $22,500. Buyer didn’t even bat an eye.

      • One of the things the pro-bond people were trying to pass off on voters a couple of years ago was that if you’re 65+ “your tax rates won’t go up” but they failed to say anything about the VALUATION on the property which always will, especially in our area where people are pouring out of the cities in order to get away from the b.s. that goes on there. This, of course, ruins our part of the world as few divest themselves of their “citified” ways.

        Since I moved 20 times before I was 18 I’ve promised myself I will never move again but, as a result, I have two more years of price appreciation to go before my tax RATE is frozen. I’m sure you can understand why I hope and pray every day that the financial crisis foretold long ago finally comes into being because the only way our valuations are going down is if the properties sold around us are sold for less and less. This takes time and the tax man wins all the time.

        I’ll never argue with you, Mark, about the beauty of California’s raw country. It’s hugely varied and Highway 1 was my all-time favorite road trip with Hurst Mansion and everything but never try to sell me on the people that have given the Communist party in that state a foothold in America. We’re having enough trouble with the ones that have moved to Texas. My uncle moved to LA after WWII and I fully understand why he fell in love with the place. Had I been in his shoes I would have, too, in that time period. Normal societal evolution has taken every incentive to move there away from me now. Profit from it as you wish. It’s your pot of boiling water.

      • That’s right Mark. There is absolutely no reason for anyone in California to sell out and move to Texas.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed your article today George. I’ve always admired your history of putting your life back together after your break up with #1. While your “film in production” may appear like a private Skunk Works of creativity, though, mine often seems like an on-going episode of “Swamp People” and the law just won’t let me “Chute ’em” – not to mention the fact they breed like rabbits. I’m just thankful the ranch allows time for creativity and “alone time” to do it for as long as I have left and the tax man can be kept at bay.

    I had a tense back-and-forth with a old Jesuit in the comments section of a Fox News article a few weeks ago. Just mentioning the Council of Nicaea and how scripture was changed from that point forward was like touching off the powder in the ignition pan on a cannon. They’re pretty sensitive about that. Long story short, if we don’t worship the Church we’re all going to Heck. They own the franchise and the business model and everyone else is guilty of intellectual property theft.

  3. Damn Well Done, this morning! Your particular way of thinking, and communicating continues to amaze this long time reader. As I stumble through my twilight years your words have encouraged me to push my envelope, in spite of my failing physical resources.
    Thanks again, my friend.

      • Yo Jorge, Happy Fathers Day to you and all the Dads in Ureland, Excellent post, I think of it this way: I live my own reality and reject all
        others. Will continue to live my life as I see fit and continue to have all the faith in the human spirit of “we the people”. I believe we must all keep our wits about us when all others are losing theirs. For our friend Andy: don’t be so hard on yourself, we all travel our own path. And lastly, like my wife reminded me before her passing ” just remember Mark this is all just an illusion. Keep the faith my brothers and sisters…

  4. Someone else requested that the default to saying yes to posts on your site be changed to opting out as the default. With respect I’d like to second that, George. I keep forgetting to do that when I post and the e-mail Inbox fills up.

    • Where is that and I will look? (*Remember, I see this from the “inside the computer” viewpoint” which is where I live… Help Help let me out!!!

  5. Here is a website that continually publishes new stories of NDE experiences:

    This one has a large amount of collected data, although I don’t agree with all of the author’s conclusions from it:

    With all the mistakes I’ve made, I don’t really look forward to watching a life review, but I would enjoy sharing a blooper reel of the funny moments with friends.

  6. George, in my view, one of your finest and most useful column that I have read! And I’ve been pretty much reading every one of them since the very early days of Urban Survival. Thank you and Happy Father’s Day!

  7. Happy fathers day George..

    what a busy day.. well I got a one year old snow blower for next to nothing along with a heater for an ice fishing house and a brand new growler..
    a boyfriend of a young lady that is like a daughter to me.. she sent her boy friend over that installs garage doors.. to fix mine.. I got rid of the absolyte batteries.. my system in twenty four volt.. they couldn’t get up over twenty four volt.. the battery bank had what is it thirty thousand amps.. plus.. well since I couldn’t get the batteries to take a full charge ( 25 volt) I decided to get rid of them.. had a guy come over with a forklift to take them out of the garage.. the battery bank and the racking weighted a couple of ton’s.. get it out.. and they wouldn’t take them unless I had them separated.. excuse me.. we tried and it was a no go.. well I called a guy hundreds of miles away that salvages these things.. he came to get them.. what was funny is I forgot to take down a vise grips that I had holding the door open for the fork lift and I hit the button.. dam if I didn’t break the garage door..
    so this morning this guy comes over that installs industrial garage doors and he started to work on it.. he was admiring our raised bed garden and I showed him that I have all the steel he will need to build a set for his girl friend and himself.. so rather than just make my garage door work he told me that when they send out garage doors they send out extra.. so he is going to put in a whole new garage door in exchange for the parts to the raised bed and a new kennel for his dogs..
    It ended up to be a good fathers day.. all the way around…

    • He seen the cardboard cabinet that I had started this last winter.. he was so excited about it.. had a hundred questions.It must be starting to look like something LOL… so I showed him how it works.. and what I have planned for it when I get back to working on it.. and I think he is going to make one.. I still am not sure what I am going to do with the counter top.. I was going to use sand and mix it with epoxy.. but I seen something that I found was really interesting.. burned or charred cardboard.. maybe some flakes of gold leaf.. or gold dust .. it could look pretty swanky..

  8. Very good article George yes I have walked into the light (died an was revived)and it change me forever I am not afraid of death anymore and have definitely changed the way I treat others and how I live my life now and yes you do a life review. My biggest regret is how I live my life before I died because I was self-centered and never thought how Much grief I caused in others. I truly hope your article helped those that read it. Thank you for your wonderful article and also have a great Father’s Day

  9. “In a Life-or-Death situation, here’s a useful tool: Being able to “tap-in” to almost unlimited energy. While, at the same time, remaining clear-headed and detached from what’s going on around you. ”

    This one has to do with just that….. most everyone knows I worked off a debt at the hospital and that is how I got associated with the hospital full time.. the ex had a gallbladder surgery.. the cost was ten times what it is for someone that has insurance.. for the surgeon I worked it off by resurfacing his parking lot by hand.. ( I will never do that again.. thank god) and that is how I became friends with my present wife.. she was concerned for my safety.. the hospital was another event.. anyway.. I ended up working three full time jobs and a part time job.. the one full time was in exchange for the bill owed to the hospital..
    I screwed up.. and for two weeks.. I didn’t schedule myself with any time off what so ever.. no time for sleeping.. after the third day.. I was so tired.. I thought I was going to die.. then after the fourth day.. everything became crystal clear.. I had tapped into a part of me that I didn’t know existed.. I had all the energy I needed.. my mind was so clear .. it was scary.. so scary.. that after the two week period that I screwed up on scheduling.. I had people sit around me to make sure I didn’t die in my sleep.. or if I did have a heart attack to be there to do cpr.. it was that scary.. ( a friend of mine.. tried the same thing.. after the week he did it.. I had lectured him on the dangers of it.. don’t end up like me.. I talked to him on the tuesday morning after easter.. he was so tired.. he was going to go to sleep for two hours..that afternoon I got a call from his son.. he had died in his sleep)
    the fight or flight.. it is built in all of us.. you will do what is necessary to survive.. I walked twelve miles to work.. in freezing temperatures no snow shoes or gloves.. just a coat two pairs of pants with newspapers stuffed between the legs of the pants.. and a stocking cap.. froze my feet and hands.. worked seven days a week.. did more part time and temp jobs than I can remember.. you do have the energy and if there is dire need.. you will do what is necessary..
    I help out a young woman that is incarcerated and she shouldn’t be incarcerated.. I know her story well she was being forced to and was so scared to turn witness against the guys that she was afraid of that they tossed the key away for her…. I will see her through her ordeal.. at least as long as I can..

  10. Dear Mr. Ure,

    Curious coinkydoinks of protest followed by violence are afoot in the realm but officialdom insists the happenings are entirely unrelated.

    Yesterday evening was the now-alleged stabbing in a Reading park where three perished. Within 10 minutes of emergency calls, an unarmed police constable apparently subdued the assailant who was by then trying to leave the park. Unrelated, we are told, a BLM protest had been held on the site hours earlier.

    Also Saturday night, the 6 person gathering limit was exceeded near Manchester as a 6,000 person strong rave with professional dj and sound equipment erupted in a down-at-heels suburb under the gaze of 30 or 40 unarmed police. After the dust settled, the police promised to investigate two homicides. The victims allegedly were shot at the rave, and first involvement with the public services was when the two victims “self-presented at hospital” for care before expiring. Hours earlier, but unrelated we are told, a BLM protest had been held on the same site as the fatal rave. A casual look around shows there were at least two other raves featuring violent incidents earlier in June around the UK, and both followed hours after BLM protest events onsite.

  11. What you have hit upon, George, is essentially what the teachings of Abraham are all about:
    We beings are FLOW-ers of ‘source energy’. We are creators of our personal reality. Everyone is different, each on their own path. The contrasts we experience are what shows us what we do, and do not want to create in our own life path.
    “Ask and it is given”

    Or as the Kahuna says: “Energy Flows Where Attention Goes”

  12. George, sorry to tell you because that was a nice effort today, but you don’t get to edit your life review reel. It didn’t happen to me at all when I crossed over for a bit; I was more interested in checking out the dark side of the moon and then they reeled me back into my body. For the record, it hurts like hell to drown (and be revived).

  13. A nearly perfect post. Only one correction I would make… you say that when you’re over 70 you need to take the time each day to enjoy each other, but as a woman who was widowed at 31 years old I would say no matter your age you want to take time every day to enjoy your partner … after all you might not know when the Director will yell cut on you or one of your co-stars.

      • Indeed I have (it has been 10 years since) – every scene ending is a new scene beginning. This chapter is full of never taking things for granted and always remembering that all things are temporary. :)

    • I am so sorry for your loss. I can relate in that I lost my husband in late February of 2019. It was a devastating loss because we were married for 35 very happy years, and he was taken so suddenly. Cherish your life partners. Every day is a gift. I have been given another gift as I now have a new and wonderful life partner. Very interesting how this occurred.

      • I am sorry for your loss as well Nancy – funny how these things come seemingly out of nowhere. Yes – every day is definitely a gift (I try really hard to remember that when kids are fighting and laundry is piling up and things appear to be going off the rails). But, as my wise teacher once told me, birds crap on your head – so what?!?

        The only choice we get is our attitude and the only stance to take in this world is that of a warrior. Ready for anything and accepting everything that gets thrown your way as a benefit … another pearl of wisdom.

  14. thank you, thank you, thank you, this is exactly the message I needed. I pared down my FB contacts b/c reviewing all that depressed me and provided little useful info. My film gets tripped up by strong emotions and a corrupted childhood script, so that I get offtrack too easily.

    I bookmarked this page because I need to engrave this info on my mind. I admire you and am glad you are there for us all.
