Continue on commenting: I am sorry to hear of those of you who experience real division and exclusion within their families or by friends or at work, due to the choice of not believing into the lies. It shows how hard this really can get and my heart goes out to you, for having the strength to deal with it and with them while defending your choices. And it is good we have each other, which is much to be grateful for. Also, thank you for sharing your stories because it gets my own situation in perspective: Some family members choose to vaccinate and to believe the lies (like my father and my sister) and it was (and is) hard for me, but at least there's no real conflict or attack against me about it - they mainly fear for me that I might be crushed in the process for following my choices. Meanwhile, their names are (among many others) on a sheet of paper next to my home crystal so they may have some protection.

My workplace in the visitor's service at a concert hall (which opened up again last month after a lockdown of 7 months) has become a place to "stalk" the petty (or not so petty - if you take the plandemic for it) tyrant: We have to enforce the crazy measures on other people. We have to make sure that only those who can identify via some kind of verification process as vaccinated, tested or recovered can come into the house. At least people still have the possibility to do a corona rapid test alternatively to the vaccine. The degree by which the measures have to be implemented has become really non-sensical but are retained for the sake of liability and for not falling "out of the line" - for example, you have to explain to some guests they need to continue wearing their mask in some situation (like during the break or in the foyers - however, at least during the performance when everybody is seated, they can take off their masks), although the incidence rate is virtually almost zero. The concert hall has to "ensure" of no transmissions taking place (in the official fiction) at their place.

At times I try to bend the rules a bit as it is possible, by simply "overlooking" people who do not wear their mask when they should (for example, if no coworkers who follow things to a "T" are close). Or when I have to tell them and they answer that they can't breathe, I say to them they can wear it under their nose. (Or if they wear the FFP2, I sometimes recommend them to get medical masks - which depends.) It's walking a thin line and not very easy to navigate. Often I am not sure if I'm doing the right thing or not. It's quite confusing, and every time I have to work there I'm just hoping of getting through it.

I cope with EE, the romance novels, by help of this network, my family and friends. And there are some work colleagues who think similarly. It's very precious if we have the opportunity to exchange thoughts and feelings about this madness. And sometimes there are some interesting little chats with visitors. Often I can listen to the performance which is a big positive. So far, there's no pressure for us to vaccinate, but I am around many vaccinated people and already implemented some of the things from the thread about the health protocol re corona vaccines, and am going to get hold of the remaining ones.

I am aware that it's far worse in other professional branches, like for employees in the health care sector. And compared to what may be in store for us further, especially regarding the final message from the C's, this is still a relatively "stable" episode which we can use productively in order to process things and prepare. However, the mentioning of "frissons" and elaborating comments about music just brought to mind the feeling of awe - that if we hear or see something exceptionally beautiful, it can give us frissons of awe. So maybe there might be awe-inspiring things in order as well. I try not to expect, but to be open and to be prepared as best as I can manage. It takes a lot of faith to do this, so this situation is good training on this aspect too. And to not lose heart, of course, and keep up hope.

Take care everyone :flowers:

Q: (L) That's good enough. Yeah, we already got the news in our newspaper today that starting in July, all the prices are going to be up, taxes on imported products, all the businesses and manufacturing jobs that are small businesses are all going to be just completely done in. And they HAVE to know that it's going to happen! I know Lobaczewski says that when psychopaths are in charge, they make stupid decisions and put stupid people in power who make further stupid decisions. They don't think things through. They have NO concept of consequences. That alone, one might think, could explain the stupidity of the actions that are going on today. However, surely, SURELY they must have a rational two or three advisors who will tell them that if you do that, this is going to happen and you're basically killing the goose that laid the golden egg, shooting off your foot, and cutting off your nose to spite your face - sorry for mixing metaphors, but that's what they're doing!

(Joe) That's been happening, and those advisors have been brushed off.


(L) Lobaczewski described what a country under a pathocratic... I mean, everything goes downhill. There are no supplies, long lines for toilet paper, all kinds of things like that. That could be just what we're seeing.

(Joe) At some point in the past few sessions, we asked a question about COVID and the lockdowns and stuff. They said that, as usual, the powers that be will push it too far and all will come crashing down. Is the 'all' that will come crashing down at least partly economic?


A: Yes

Q: (Joe) Are they going to continue these lockdowns with the talk of new variants, travel restrictions, no hugging your neighbor...?

A: Yes

Q: (L) I tell ya, people: it's all really depressing out there. The thing is, we had all of this predicted to us 25 years ago. We knew it was coming; we just didn't know how.

(Andromeda) It's surreal to see it actually happening.

(L) It's Bizarro World.

(Joe) At this point, we're just waiting for it to happen because we can see where it's going to go if they continue on this course.

Can't say we didn't get the heads up. France' and the EU are finically imploding and way out of touch with reality and the needs of people.

6:55 a.m. The CAC 40 recorded its best first semester in more than 20 years. The Paris Stock Exchange soared by more than 17% in the first half of 2021. According to Les Echos, it had not had such a booming start to the year since 1998. After a particularly difficult first half of 2020, the large listed companies raised the bar from the second half of the year. According to analysts, the CAC 40 could pass the 7,100 points mark within a year against 6,507 points currently.


6:45 am. The feeling of being downgraded sharply among young people. According to the annual barometer of the Drees, 25% of French people said they were living in a bad financial situation at the end of 2020, against 19% a year earlier. The progression is particularly visible among 18-29 year olds. According to the DREES, which has been keeping this barometer since 2000, this indicator had not reached such a level since the economic crisis of 2008 and had since experienced only a slight upturn at the height of the “vests” crisis yellow ”. Unemployment worries have almost doubled among the youngest. According to Drees, they were 63% to fear not finding or losing their job at the end of 2020, 15 points more than a year earlier.

6:20 am. Phuket in Thailand is reopening to tourists despite the virus. The first international travelers exempted from quarantine have just landed on the tourist island of Phuket in southern Thailand, as the country seeks to revive a battered tourism industry since its borders were closed in March 2020. Tourism is nearly a fifth of the kingdom's economy and before the crisis, around 40 million travelers traveled to Thailand each year. But the arrivals come as the kingdom is currently trying to contain a third wave of coronavirus, the worst it has seen, by imposing restrictions in the capital Bangkok and its outskirts that have seen the Alpha and Delta variants spread.

6:15 am. The automotive market still depressed. New car registrations in France fell 14.67% year on year in June, according to data released Thursday by the Committee of French Automobile Manufacturers (CCFA). Over the first six months of the year, the market shows an increase of 28.91% compared to the period January-June 2020 but a decrease of 20.9% compared to the same period of 2019 before the Covid crisis .


6:10 am. World Bank crosses $ 4 billion mark for vaccine financing. The World Bank said on Wednesday it had provided more than $ 4 billion (€ 3.4 billion) for the purchase and deployment of COVID-19 vaccines in 51 developing countries, half of which in Africa, where vaccination rates are among the lowest in the world.

6:05 am. The health pass becomes European. In force since June 9 in France, the health pass merges with the “European Covid digital certificate” to travel to 33 countries of the Old Continent from this Thursday. This certificate is proof in the form of a QR Code stating that a person has been vaccinated against Covid-19 or is negative for Covid-19 or has recovered. To download your vaccination certificate in the "TousAntiCovid" application, go to the "My notebook" section, select "Add a certificate" and scan the QR code on the right of the certificate.

6 hours. Welcome to this live. It will allow you to follow all the information on the evolution of the epidemic
.

While they make us wonder between Jean Alain's prison and the 3rd dose, they hide from us how the world reveals itself in the face of the health dictatorship. The English are fed up with absurd measures and distances.
To the government to do what it wants with the vaccine business. My advice is that nobody lends itself to that invention of the 3rd dose. That they continue to screw up, so it is more possible that people can wake up and reveal themselves.

LOL ........:whistle:

True colinearity, IMO, is a function of Seeing AND Doing, i.e. it's about sufficient faith in the cosmology and the process that it influences your actions, and taking action based on a particular reading of reality 'locks' in that reality. I think it is possible that many members here understand, but are somewhat lacking in taking action based on that understanding. Taking that action creates "colinearity" in the sense that it becomes a shared 'colinear' reality based on conditions-of-life-shaping decisions. As the Cs once said, people who sit on the fence too long eventually get splinters. :wizard:

There's a part of this that resonates with Paul's work. From page 254 of Laura's new book:

"Paul contrasts the continuous state of 'imprisonment' in a life dominated by the flesh and materialism as opposed to 'doing what is right' according to the Spirit. He is saying that those who lives by the Spirit are empowered to act rightly in a way that is not possible under the domination of flesh/materialism. This fundamental state affects and informs all human actions; even if you do right actions, if you are still fundamentally identified with fleshly existence, your right action is still 'sin' according to Paul.

So my reading of this indicates that it's not enough to do what is healthy and good (right action) for the body, heart, and mind - for ourselves, others, the planet, the cosmos, etc. If I seem to be 'doing what is right' on the outside, but harbour a secret inner motivation to 'do what is right' for my own benefit, its doubtful that substantial Soul growth will result. Sort of like the Work (EE, diet, supplements, spinning, prayer, raeding etc.) as a form of 'obeying the Law' spoken about by Paul.

To be fully honest, I've noticed some members are well aware of their indulgence in the flesh/materialism, whether it is masturbation or negative emotions or bad diet, and also have all the Knowledge on hand to address these issues - but still indulge. Peter Sloterdijk, if I'm remembering correctly, calls this Cynical Reason. We know better, but the mechanism keeps on running. Subjectivity and self-love is still being chosen over and above Objective Knowledge and a love of something higher. So as a Group, the C's are indicating that there's an opportunity to see to that. And I don't think this should be taken lightly. And I say all this knowing that I still have growing up to do. It's not an overnight miracle. But the reflection feels important to share.

So I think it's a crucial time to really check in and see what the motivations truly are, and network about what's there. Personal health, personal survival, personal growth - all these are fine as sub-Aims, but it seems to me that unless these personal considerations are all intrinsically linked to a broader Aim to increase the health and connectivity of the network, and be kinda like an authentic vibrational offering to the cosmos as a whole, they fall short of actualizing our true collective potential - which is enormous, when you think about it.

The following session quote about bees protecting the hive, and Ark's paragraph about always using negativity for expansion as the best mode of defence, and his flagging of stagnation seems like its on point here:

(Pierre) People's lives are at stake in the sense that they can become possessed when they embrace this ideology. For awhile I've been thinking that there is more at stake, literally the souls of individuals. If you remember in Darkness Over Tibet, when the...

A: Smashing

Q: (Pierre) Yeah, they're right but they didn't let me finish the sentence. In Darkness Over Tibet, the wise man said there's not much that is a sin against the soul - except playing god. And this ideology when you embrace, you are playing god. You deny reality.

(L) We have our problems with organized religion, but it's better than thinking that you yourself are god! To understand that the cosmos out there is a bit bigger and smarter than you are...

(Andromeda) That there's something higher.

(Joe) Is it true that people who gravitate toward that idea of relativism and that there's no truth, and then they effectively put themselves in the place of god, is it because they have no real inner connection or appreciation of anything higher than themselves?

A: Yes

Q: (L) Okay, so you were saying that people would try to attack me through my children. There was another occasion when you said that the attack would rotate from one kid to the next. Is that a correct assessment?

A: Time will tell. It is not over. But we also told you that you would be prepared and protected.

Q: (L) Well, I don't feel very protected quite frankly...

A: Just realize that forces have acted against you from your childhood. Do you think they would honor "family ties?"

Q: (L) So in other words... I always said that attacks on my kids or problems with my kids are the one thing that could take me out. My weakness, my vulnerability.

(Pierre) That's why they use it.

(L) And boy, do they use it!

A: You have other "true" children to create the defense. All should think of the "Queen Bee" and the goose and the golden egg. It is not over by a longshot.

Q: (L) So I'm just a mechanism for laying eggs. Is that it? [laughter]

(Artemis) I'M the golden one!

(L) Oh, you're the golden egg! I see. [laughter]

(Artemis) You're the goose, and we're the golden eggs.

(Joe) What did they mean? What is not over by a longshot?

A: The events in which you will play an important part.

Q: [Review of answers] (L) All the queen bee does is lay around in the middle of the nest and lay eggs.

(Artemis) You're up there reading all the time. [laughter]

(Joe) How is that relevant?

(Chu) Because they all protect her.

(Niall) The worker or soldier bees.

A: Defense is the key. Ark's impulse was exactly correct.

Q: (Joe) What impulse? What are we talking about here? I'm getting confused.

(L) What impulse?

A: His instant recognition.

Q: (Pierre) Okay, Arky. I think they're cryptic on purpose and they want you to talk.

(Joe) I'm assuming we're talking here in relation to kids?

A: No. Back to the beginning: First principles.

Q: (Chu) What was your instant recognition, Arky?

(L) Do you know what they're talking about honey?

(Ark) First principle?

(Chu) First principles.

(Ark) Defense is the key... Hmm. I dunno.

(Joe) Maybe it's something to do with when you first met Laura and your approach to all the attacks that came from Bridges and that kind of thing. Your attitude was defense, not attack. Right?

A: To serve and protect.


Q: (L) What, are we starting a police academy?? [laughter]

(Scottie) DCI Arky!

A: To be capable of great knowledge one must be open and vulnerable. This necessitates defense.

Q: (Pierre) The queen bee makes babies, and you bring knowledge babies. To get this knowledge, you have to be vulnerable and open. So you need to be surrounded by warrior bees, which is us, but particularly Arky.

(Ark) Maybe if I would ask here one question that is on my mind and that is related: My general idea or one of my first principles is whenever you are kind of being attacked or whenever you get depressed because of difficulties, then my idea is use it as an opportunity to EXPAND and to go beyond the present boundaries. Within present boundaries, the forces or whatever recognize how to push you. So you have to go beyond the boundaries to start something new so it will take time for the evil forces to say, "Oh, well, old method doesn't work anymore. We have to invent something new." So, I was thinking about how can we expand because we are kind of too long at the same place. So, I was thinking about asking are there any others similar groups or organizations in the universe that we can try kind of connecting with - not necessarily openly - but to join forces with so we are not alone? So we can grow in a sense like a tree with roots going in different directions. Should we do something active to find so to say "friendly" forces? And which way?

A: Be open to such activity but also realize that some things are already planned and awaiting execution.

Q: (L) Yeah. There are things I need to be doing. I just haven't been able to do them since I've been sick, injured, and so upset about so many things including the state of the world. So, getting ready and being able to do these things is probably part of the expansion because those were plans for expansion.

A: Also realize that others are aware of your group and work and will initiate contact when time is right.

Q: (Artemis) So what can we do to move that along?

A: Persist on current path somewhat and when disruptive elements are removed, things will move naturally.

Q: (L) What do you mean by "disruptive elements"?

A: Either physical or psychic.

The last bold quote reminds me of how and the childhood of man, the introduction of the Law, the rebellion against it, and the resulting realities of sin and death may be uncomfortable, but are a necessary stage in the cycle of learning. Only through all of that can we know good and evil. So our current non-colinearity may be seen in such a light.

Anyways, back to gathering nectar!

I'm sorry if my post comes out as sidelines rambles, my views on the topic aren't quite clear yet. I'll post them anyway as that could provide fuel to the conversation.

I believe this goes back to the act of making conscious sacrifices, where your personal wants are replaced by the collective needs. From the Oxford dictionary, a sacrifice is "the fact of giving up something important or valuable to you in order to get or do something that seems more important; something that you give up in this way"; combined with the Miriam-Webster one, "to suffer loss of, give up, renounce, injure, or destroy especially for an ideal, belief, or end", it frames sacrifice as being subordinate to an aim of higher order and value.

Now in order to aim correctly a better understanding of what is higher and lower might help. The work of Max Scheler (among probably other authors of whom I'm not aware) could be useful in that regard. He tried to lay out a hierarchy of values and then mapped it to a corresponding hierarchy of higher and lower emotions. From Wikipedia :

The connection between emotive life and value modalities​

The structure of Scheler's stratification model of emotive life correlates to the inherent spectral type structure of value rankings, or what Scheler termed the apriori hierarchy of value modalities. Our earlier analogy to color perception illustrates this point. Just as all colors we intuit (see) are derivative of the pure spectrum or hues as when pure ("white") light is refracted through a prism, so too all intuited (felt) values are derivative of the apriori hierarchy of value modalities as when Divine love is apprehended through a purely ordered heart (Ordo Amoris).

Scheler's claim is that these value modalities are constant and unchanging throughout history, forming a basis for objective non-formal ethics. From lowest to highest these modalities (with their respective positive and corresponding negative dis-value forms) are as follows: sensual values of the agreeable and the disagreeable; vital values of the noble and vulgar; mental (psychic) values of the beautiful and ugly, right and wrong and truth and falsehood; and finally values of the Holy and Unholy of the Divine and Idols.


Values_hiearchy.jpg
Emotion_value_correlation.jpg

We can clearly see the gradual progression from flesh towards the Spirit/Holy. I think his concept of Ordo Amoris is particularly relevant to this topic. here's a short description from Scheler's essay, Ordo Amoris:

Whoever grasps the ordo amoris of a man, has hold of man himself. He possesses him as moral subject - what crystal form is to crystal itself. He sees into this man as far as one can see into one's fellow. Behind the empirical multifold and complexity he sees the ever simply flowing basic contours of man, and this, rather than knowledge or will, deserves to qualify as the core of man as a spiritual being. He possesses in his spiritual make-up the original source that secretly spawns all that issues from man. And even more, it is the primordial determinant of that which incessantly places itself around him - in space his moral world, in time his fate, i.e., to become the quintessence of the possible that can happen to him and only to him.

The differentiation between higher and lower emotions/values (as well as their negative/positive polarity) obviously calls forth the teachings of the Fourth Way about the divisions of Man's centers and the aim of Soul's growth towards the fusion of the higher and lower emotional centers. The goal of the latter could be the "purely ordered heart" of Scheler's, the Ordo Amoris being the "primordial determinant" in Man's fate (a.k.a. the use of one's Will).

Looping back to our self-sacrifice business, from where I see it what we have to do is identify the needs of the collective and address them the best we can using our Will which is driven by higher emotions/values. For that, I feel From Paul to Mark (and subsequent works linking to Ceasar and the C's material for instance) may very well be the cornerstone of that endeavor as it lays out the set of values and principles at the heart of Paleochristianity. Should all the FOTCM members manage to gain a shared understanding of these (e.g. through the reading workshops), true co-linearity could be achieved practically (with a bit more work on top of that of course :-P).

Isn't that the role of Holy scriptures (e.g. the Bible, the Torah, the Koran, etc) within mainstream religions ? Could this book be a rational, historically accurate, yet spiritual Bible for Paleochristianity ? I'm probably pushing things too far with this, but the book's size would fit just right if only that :whistle:

I don't know if it's a good place to mention it, but I have such an overwhelming feeling that something bad is approaching. I noticed a similar feeling of fatigue and breakdown and my family's reactions before covid launched. I am curious if you have a feeling that, regardless of the current world situation it feels anxiety in itself, from the inner space without a reason?

Possibly that feeling comes when a person fully realizes the situation we are in. The old saying "ignorance is bliss" could apply in your position.

I have had that feeling for more than 60 years. Just in the last 12 years, coming to accept that these things must come to pass has helped with the anxiety of feeling helpless to change the way it is. Whatever comes shall also pass. Do things necessary for yourself and try not to worry about what the other person is doing. They do what they want anyway.

I just laughed at the comment of just how long that background feeling has been lurking in myself as well. (I guess misery loves company!) And now here we are. It is playing out in the strangest ways. Game on. Chicken Little is finally right. And so, ironically, that inner dread is now ready to be transformed into something positive and hopeful now.

Samo sam se nasmijala komentaru koliko dugo taj osjećaj pozadine vreba i u meni samom. (Valjda bijeda voli društvo!) I eto nas. Igra se na najčudnije načine. Igra na. Piletina Little napokon je u pravu. Ironija je u tome što je ta unutarnja strepnja sada spremna za pretvaranje u nešto pozitivno i nadu.

Sometimes I enjoy listening to a lie, it is so obvious and silly that it reinforces me in the rightness of meaning.

It takes a critical mass of lies, and by inertia people will reach for the truth.

I’m not sure when enjoyment is ever a healthy emotional response to hearing lies. Likewise with inertia ever required for reaching at truth. The exact opposite sounds more appropriate to me.

That is a very interesting point, and something that I have seen first hand with friends and relatives. Before Covid, we had many conversations about current events, and I would be injecting alternate views of what could be happening, and they would listen, at least.

But it seems a switch was thrown with covid.

First thing I noticed was the bombardment level of the media. It seemed every channel was saying exactly the same thing, repeated ad nauseum. Didn't matter if it was a news channel, a chat channel, the weather channel, all seemed to get switched on at the same time. Even though I knew I was immune to the programming, I thought that very few would be able to resist it. And sure enough, that has come to pass.

It is one thing to say that you believe something in good times, when things are easy, but where the rubber hits the road is, can you stay true to your beliefs when things get tough. When you have to take a different tack to the rest of the world. Most people can't do it. That is what I see right now.
Your post made me want to share some points about our current situation, in light of our efforts to network and become colinear in our understanding and actions.

And as @Ketone Cop wrote earlier, quoting an earlier post, we must strive to overcome our tendencies to shut out, we must share and thus help ourselves and others.

Just like you, I see the programming affecting almost everyone I know and interact with, and now, just days before the vaccine becomes available for my age group, I see how difficult it is to resist the urge to do what supposedly everyone is doing, what the specialists are saying is right to do, to see through the lies and act accordingly.

I already see the manufactured consent ruining some of my relationships, but that may be the very lesson I need to learn, to apply the concept of strategic enclosure and external consideration, while at the same time being true to what I see and what I am, doing what is best for my potencial soul and aligning myself with this network.

Thank you for the session and most importantly, OSIT, thank you, fellow members, for sharing and helping me to see and to learn, every day.
