Lodge of Freedom

For almost 23 years, this warrior of freedom has walked a practice that is called lodge. While warriors of freedom, Toltecs if you will (though not limited to that), are people who recapitulate all ritual, religion and patterns, this practice has become an amazing key to freedom. Staying away from the topic for as long as this blog has been in existence was a conscious choice. There is nothing about lodge that can save anyone from anything. This is a critical distinction. The only practice that can and does lead to deeper understanding and freedom is recapitulation. But it is time to share the idea with warriors of freedom around the globe.

Lodge has become a beautiful obsession, a shared wonder, and an awesome practice. Lodge is a space within which silence is cultivated. Lodge is a space where recapitulation can be done with increased focus. Lodge is a space where warriors can celebrate who and what they are and the path we share together. Lodge is a space where we throw down the gauntlet at the predator and say, NO! Lodge is a space where we can heal, knowing healing comes from within our own being. Lodge is a space of creation and creativity for creators. Lodge is a space of darkness that swirls with energy and light that focuses our intention. Lodge is a space where we become INTENT.

Here is the extreme challenge of all warriors. For as we grow, as we know, we create patterns. Patterns are there to help our lives become simpler. The brain uses less energy when it creates easier pathways to manage information, knowledge and history. But likewise, the simpler, the more assumptions and the easier it is to be trapped by the very patterns which we have become accustomed to living.

Human relationships are the biggest pattern producing system within our brains. The neocortex and most of the upper brain is dedicated to sensate information gathered over long periods of time. Memories and patterns become fixated and this influences the central brain where feeling is generated. The hard part is, what if those patterns are no longer viable? What if our very patterns are keeping us addicted to emotions which are in and of themselves debilitating.

Aliens!

The Meme

The Meme

For years the current trivial pursuit of Aliens among us has been part of the trash of the common culture. Why? It sells of course. It gets people to talk about….yes! you heard it here …. nothing…. Just like conspiracy theories and who is to blame for this or that. Amidst the dross and the warp and weft of our awareness this consistent thought meme runs. ALIENS!!! Must have been…

The ancients were amazing people. Without the trappings of our modern fixation on ration, they did many things that amaze our modern day science. They built buildings, pyramids, spent hours figuring out the motion of the stars…. Why? Really, you have to ask… because they could. But also they were not distracted as we are today by the fixation of the ration, by the common cultural trap of our attention… TV, movies, internet etc etc etc….. They were brilliant because, if you look at it right, we are brilliant. What is missing is the record of their brilliance in writing or passing on the knowledge of those ancient buildings, places and spaces. I have said this before… some of them just shifted their assemblage points beyond the necessity of the physical and left, lock stock and barrel leaving almost nothing behind as evidence.  But the lack of recorded evidence does not mean the lack knowledge or understanding among the ancients. That is flawed logic in the extreme… and conclusions like its aliens that did it… well…. Uff da!

My benefactor, elder of his tradition, said this to me on numerous occasions.   The record of his lineage was passed from generation to generation through groups of individuals that passed knowledge by word of mouth. Only in the last hundred years did this knowledge become corrupted by the influence of writing and the incursion of foreign takers. He maintained that if the people, any people, could understand this simple statement, much could be healed… between people, between us and the earth, but mostly within our own beings.

He noted that when we define anything with a negative connotation we then set ourselves up to be toxified and brought down. This did not mean that everything is in harmony with our highest good, far from that. There are medicines that are downright nasty for us and should be avoided, but they have their purpose in the grand scheme of the earth.  He feared that we might have released too many of those medicines for the long term survival of our species. And he was always reminding me of the earth’s place in the center of all medicine because she is the source of all life and energy which creates medicine and hosts our spiritual journey with her.

Without a doubt, we live in magical, interesting, and amazing times. At no point in the history of humans on this planet have we had more access to information, awareness and communication across our globe. We have cracked so many mysteries of our universe scientifically. We have linked our spirituality to reveal the inner workings of our belief systems in a network of being that criscrosses our globe every day. In an instant anyone can look up, learn and connect to just about anything. But along with all the good, we have released the anger, frustration and darkness from the depths of our planet. We have released toxins into our food system, produced energy that is changing our weather, and invented chemistry to sustain a level of economic growth unprecedented in this globe’s history. Medicine has come up with solutions to almost every part of our bodies. And throughout this process we hum along no different than the people of the Roman age, blind to the energies we are surrounded by and create with.

From deep within this amazing time, the predator, who plays on our fears and emotions to distract us from freedom and awareness, has created the ultimate bottom feeder, cancer. Cancer is the penultimate warrior’s challenge.   It forces us to clearly admit the utter physicality of our spiritual path. That we are since conception a part of a drama to which we, no matter how much we recapitulate and free, are immersed within the belly of the beast. We do and can create anything as warriors, for this is what our path is all about… shifting our assemblage points dramatically and drastically to not become food for the predator up to and including the final maneuver. But the cancer is everywhere present at the base of the life pyramid.

Peacemakers

Mandala of the World

Mandala of the World

We do not need a new president to rally our hearts in false promises and hopes. We do not need more politicians to grandstand on each side of the issues. We do not need a new religious leader, guru or savior to tell us what has already been said. We do not need a new movement, party or organization promising a new tomorrow. We do not need new technologies that can make our days different. We do not need new thoughts, philosophies or systems of knowledge to satisfy our ration. We do not need a new star in the heavens to guide our way. We do not need a new justice system or regulator force to keep the status quo.

We need peacemakers. We need them in every aspect and walk of life. We need them in our hearts and minds. We need to stop the conflict, the overpowering need to be right, defended and on top. We need to listen to the peace within the depths and take action to stand up against the violence of our words and deeds with non-violent action. We need peacemakers in our towns, our cities our country sides in every corner of the world. We need the peacemakers to awaken and stand against all extremes that would bring us low. We need them in the secret organizations and all public places. We need the peacemakers to awaken now.

No election, movement, drama, conflict, battle, church or temple is necessary for the peacemakers. They are next to us, in us and all around us at all times. Peacemakers create the possibilities of real promise. Peacemakers commit to the fundamental right of human freedom and awareness in the world. Peacemakers walk away, leave and shun the conflicts for they will consume themselves by their own weight and energy.

We need peacemakers…. We need you, me, all of us to wake up to real peace.

If the definition of intelligence is the ability to hold two opposing or conflicting ideas in one’s head without making a decision or losing it, then the definition of fluidity to a warrior of awareness should be the ability to hold two positions of the assemblage point at one time without going completely mad.

Of course everything is perception and we know as warriors of awareness that reality is truly constructed on our perceptual framework. In other words the energy drives the manifestation of reality. Yet there is a healthy argument that the universe has a basic structure, albeit fluid and flexible, which is stable and maintains certain rules. (Even Chaos theory supports this.)
