Exactly! I always wonder why people believe only what they were raised by their parents to believe. Not always ofcourse their are many exceptions, but
most do. Say you were raised Christian or Jewish or Muslim do you just except that as reality as truth without questioning?
I am the product a fairly unusual upbringing CindyMars. My parents divorced while I was quite young and my maternal grandfather became my Father
figure from the age of 6 to 14 years. He was an agnostic, pacifist by nature who did not believe in the Christian concept of G-d, but loved to sing in
the Church Choir! He was highly educated holding a PHD yet always championed and developed close lifelong personal relationships with the workers and
the Steel Mill in Pittsburgh he ran. He was passionate about politics and was a card carrying member of the American Communist Party, his personal
dream and hope for humanity was that one day it would develop into a utopian society without a need for laws imposed through an authority based
system, or for money or commerce for profit, but where everyone would share and share alike. He loved to read and helped me learn to appreciate
reading every bit as much as he did. He loved buying and collecting books of all kinds from detective novels, to alternative health and holistic
healing, to history, science, conspiracy theories, expose, fictional and non-fictional novels, UFO’s and Ancient Civilizations, military and
political history and works of comedy. He was very progressive for an elderly man in the early 1970’s. He and his retired friends loved discussing
conspiracies and politics of all kinds and to their delight beginning at the age of 6 I began studiously observe their conversations and sometimes
very passionate debates. They thought it was rather cute at first, and then were amazed that I was actually following along and registering and
comprehending everything they were discussing. When they realized this I became the unofficial debate referee. They had spent the better part of
several decades trying to convince one another of their arguments without much luck, so they soon started crafting their debates with one another to
appeal directly to me so I might decide for them who was really most correct. They all saw dark days ahead for our nation after living 7 decades of
it’s history and watching the progression of the slow erosion of the constitution and the ascension of the corporations to a position of national
and international dominance and generally feared for my future that they knew they would not be a part of by pouring every shred of knowledge they had
to share into my young fertile mind. Needless to say they turned me into a walking talking breathing fully functional 70 year old by the time I was 8.
That didn’t go over to well with my teachers in school by the age of 13 so I was briefly made a ward of the State as a result after being declared
incorrigible. It was brief interment as the State was adequately prepared and empowered at that level to take on a 13 year old not a 70 year old!
After a series of stinging defeats I handed to Montgomery County Maryland, the State of Maryland and the Federal Government, the FBI handed off the
ball to the CIA to have a go with me and after a series of lengthy interviews under the guise of ‘tutoring’, it was assumed I in essence thought
like a good Roman, and would act like a good Roman, but it wasn’t in Rome’s interest to let me anywhere near it’s young and impressionable
minds. So at the age of 14 by contractual agreement between the state and my Mother whom they had returned guardianship over me again to by that time,
it was decided they would not seek to educate me, and I would not ask to be educated. I was officially kicked out of the ‘Box’ and not welcome
inside of it any longer. I had my first undisputed psychic encounter at the age of 8, my second far more significant one at the age of 13, and yet
another at the age of 14 that would shatter any hope at all that I might one day share the same illusion of reality as just about everyone else did.
Already by that age, and much more so over the next couple of decades, again and again I would find the age old adage of “When a pupil is ready, a
Master shall appear” as an eclectic and varied group of mentors would come and go in my life preparing me almost magically to get through an
unending series of trials and travails those living within the box would seldom if ever face. I was 27 years old when much to my horror and dismay my
rapidly collected and wide array of knowledge let me to accidentally opening the door to the ‘other side’. What little hope I still clung too that
maybe mine might one day develop into a ‘normal’ life was so dashed, smashed, and dismantled beyond any repair all I could do was resign myself to
that rather rare fate. My friends and business associates often affectionately love to say that they are sure “I have lost it” to which I always
jovially reply “I never even found it”.
My entire life has been lived outside of the ‘box’ and anything that ‘normal’ people universally have to and get to participate in throughout
the formative process, I was never in attendance of or exposed too.
That’s how I was raised. I was raised by a rather surprising universe that seemed at times to take almost sadistic joy, that nothing surprised me at
A good example, my Mother does not at all question, but feels afraid to believe anything other than what she has been taught as a Fundamental
Christian. Thats ok that is her reality.
Ignorance truly is bliss CindyMars and people should be always be careful about what they do ask for, because don’t you know they just might get it.
Most people become the sum total of their immediate environment and the weight of circumstances they encounter in it that leads to their fate. Of
course the best way to avoid weighty circumstances is to ask no questions. The three happy little monkeys that see no evil, hear no evil, and speak no
evil, are happy little monkeys. They are of course nonetheless monkeys, but happy. Whether through religion, politics, or business, most people have a
wonderful penchant for developing an underlying set of circular logic ideals and principals that typically allow them to pen and corral themselves in
such a way they will never break out of the box. In large part because that’s the way they prefer it. They don’t want to be crucified, imprisoned,
committed, or shunned, but to enjoy that treadmill of life they create that allows them for the most part to go round and round and round again with
the family and friends they most love. No pain no gain, no risk, no loss, and safe, sure, comfortable. In my humble opinion they are the lucky ones,
they carry weight upon their shoulders but not the weight of the World or the Universe, and theirs is a light load. They have lots of time for family
and friends and play when the work day is done.
But sometimes here some people will quote Science as fact. Its not necessarily fact to me. Anything under observation becomes self aware.
All roads lead to Rome Cindymars. Whether it’s a wiccan’s spell, a Christian’s prayer, an alchemist’s formulas and calculations, an
engineer’s or architect’s graphs and designs, a Doctor’s scalpel and sutures, or a metaphysical desire to manifest…it all accomplishes the
same thing. Many roads, one destination, the same destination, travelled to in that way they have learned to believe that particular journey can be
Between you and I Cindymars, you might better understand that science itself was born first and foremost for one thing, to practice the art of
alchemy, the oldest and first scientific endeavor, still unrealized, alchemy the science and art of turning non-precious substances into Gold! They
still haven’t succeeded so the next Einstein that crosses your path and seeks to intellectually torment you can simply say “Well, hey you guys
still haven’t accomplished your first task to make Gold out of other materials…so what’s up with that?” “I guess rocket science and quantum
physics is a little easier?” Of course a few people know how to make other things into Gold through a metaphysical process called Terra Forming!
Let’s see them come with all the x’s and o’s for that one!
Thanks for the S & F.
Your quite welcome CindyMars tis always a pleasure to share with you, thank you!
