A man comes to a master to ask how much man is independent and free. Is he free, or is there a limitation? Is there something like fate, kismet, destiny, a God who makes a limitation beyond which you cannot be free?
The mystic answered in his way – not logically but existentially. He said, “Stand up.”
The man must have felt this was a stupid kind of answer, “I am asking a simple question, and he is asking me to stand up.” But he said, “Let us see what happens.” He stood. And the mystic said, “Now, raise one of your legs.”
By this time, the man must have been thinking he had come to a madman; what has this to do with freedom, independence? But now that he has come. There must have been a crowd of disciples, and the mystic was so respected; not to follow him would be disrespectful, and there was no harm. So he lifted one of his legs from the earth, so one foot was in the air, and he was standing on one foot.
And then the...
At last, the Sumerian Epic returns with Part 7: The Great Flood! Here we explore the evidence for a global catastrophe nearly 13,000 years ago, what caused it, and how it completely changed life on earth and set us on the path that we are on today!

Is 2020 the New 2012?
“Judgment day and the end of the world is in our minds..and our minds are a dangerous place to be” -Kelly Cutrone.
Hey, hey, Remember when everyone said the world would end in 2012 and they made a movie about it and everything? And everyone was saying that there would be cataclysmic events like Massive fires, World War 3, plagues of locusts, floods, and mass civil unrest...leading to complete shutdown of all society?? Yeah, so uh funny story while we all know that didn’t happen in 2012, cause we’re all still here almost every prediction people made about how the world would end back then has pretty much come true for 2020. Wildfires exploded across Australia at the tail end of 2019 and were most influential in January. WW3? In January, after the assassination of Iranian general Qasem Soleimani, tensions between the US and Iran were at an all-time high, with attacks on the US Embassy in Baghdad sparking fears the next war could happen...

Scientists, historians, and archeologists are actively engaged in answering the big questions about human origins, our relationship to each other, and the world around us. But advances in technology and scientific techniques are uncovering paradigm-shattering discoveries that are forcing a crisis in their way of thinking. The models and historical narratives that were once accepted as truth are no longer holding up to the evidence being uncovered.
You know the idea that a subtle flitter of a butterfly's wing can be the catalyst for the creation of a hurricane or a tornado on the other side of the planet? This applies to everything, and Mars retrograde is no exception. The smallest shift, the change in the gravitational relationship with mars, created much larger results with many smaller shifts and events that played out here on earth.

Over the next several weeks, were going to open up the mailbag and answer frequently asked questions that I get in the Spirit Science inbox. Granted, there's a lot of questions, and I can't be expected to answer all of them. I do want to tackle the big ones though, so that is what I strive to do over the next few weeks.
Stay tuned to Spirit Science in the next few weeks, there's a lot happening and we have lots to talk about!
If you want to ask us a question for the mailbag, post them on Tumblr!
A university profession went to see a zen master… While the master quietly served tea, the professor talked about zen! The master poured his visitors' cup to the brim, and then kept on pouring.
The professor watched the overflow until he could no longer restrain himself. “It is overfull. No more will go in!” The professor blurted. The Zen master replied, “Like this cup,” Nan-in said, “you are full of your own opinions and speculations. How can I show you Zen unless you first empty your cup?”
The man got the message, took a deep breath, and nodded. The master continued.
See not one thing as a thing, but all possibilities of what it may be. A cup is a cup in your mind, and To someone else, it could be a weapon; it could even be a hat. At this moment, it is a river, and now let us drink from the river of wisdom. He stopped pouring, and both of them picked up their tea.
“Uhh, what about the mess?” the...

Hey Everyone! This is a music video I cut together for everyone for Thanksgiving & Beyond! The song is called "Give Thanks" By +Elijah & The Band of Light, one of my biggest inspirations. I love this man, if you know him, tell him I love him and want to give him a hug!
Check out Elijah Ray's amazing music on Spotify! https://open.spotify.com/artist/06vQr...
Regardless of what this day means for you, we all must learn and practice giving thanks and love to those who are in our lives. The connections between each other are so important, this is as much a collective journey as much as it is a solo one. And to try and help shift this planet solo is ultimately to cut yourself off from the rest.
The One is All.
The All is One.
So, this totally just took me by surprise (after making the video, of course), but it's not only Mars Retrograde right now... Saturn Retrograde started on March 2nd! Ahh!!! What is happening?!

This week, I would like to take some time to talk about Words. Words are very fascinating, because some Words have an intrinsic meaning that goes along with the vibration, and other words have no meaning, but we give them meaning based on how we use them. I have learned to strive to understand what all vibrations are and ask questions as to why these words are expressed in the way that they are. Words like Spirit, Holographic Universe, and God are all words that are incredibly misunderstood in our day and age, and to look at the Root of the word will yield a deeper understanding of why we use the word as we do.
The Expression of the Universe manifests as you, and the All of Infinity. You and I are an expression of the Source Consciousness Field, and we can Express ourselves in any way that we choose. At least, that is what I have come to in my growth, and it is a truth that I would like to share with you. Whether you receive it or not, that's up to you.
As usual, take what...
