Polyphia – LIT

Audiovisual onomatopoeia of some highly tuned-in, full-blast, intricate, high-bandwidth feels. Energy sketching with the latest in tools and cutting-edge inspiration. A feast and a challenge for a (relatively) old guy like me to take in. (Besides my age [32 Sols], I was raised mostly on music that was either upwards of a hundred years old or exhibited a clear, tightly-buttoned-down lack of groove. I only started freely listening to whatever I actually wanted when I was 23.)

These kids are amazing. The band released its first studio album in 2015. We’re talking demigod-level talent and creativity. If this is the direction music is taking, I’m all for it!

The whole genre is new to me:

“Djent is a style of progressive metal, named for an onomatopoeia for the distinctive high-gain, distorted, palm-muted, low-pitch guitar sound first employed by Meshuggah and SikTh. Typically, the word is used to refer to music that makes use of this sound, to the sound itself, or to the scene that revolves around it.”

The song in the video is “LIT, a remix of the song Light, the second track on Renaissance. The remix presents melodic guitar and bass tracks over an EDM beat, presenting the mixture of their genre and their inspiration of Rap and Hip-Hop.”

I stumbled upon this video through the Facebook timeline of another artist, Beyond Infinity, whose work I discovered by searching YouTube for “progressive ambient metal” just on impulse to see what turned up. He’s a no less talented one-man band with some daring, fresh material that has teased and expanded my sensibilities as I’ve listened. So good.

Stay lit up inside, friends, and don’t forget to party!

Neptunian Horizon – The Pride of Lucifer

From the description:
New punk/metal/symphonic track from the next album.

Download the MP3:
(latest version: Dec 25, 2016)

This song about the controversial Anthroposophical understanding of Lucifer as a force of transcendence and liberation that risks overshooting into mania and delusion. It's a cautionary tale about the seductive quality of Lucifer and transcendence in general, in that this force is necessary to rise beyond pedestrian materialism but it can lead to ungrounded or false spirituality if one isn't careful. The golden mean between material enslavement and metaphysical delusion is the Christ impulse, which balances and goes beyond, matching awakened wisdom with compassion.

The Pride of Lucifer

Track from as yet unreleased album

Neptunian Horizon / Montalk

Crashing to ground, lucid light of the heavens,
Fire divine unto darkness and venom.
Captive in clay, dream the ancient of days,
Eyes burning skyward all vision but fades away.

For there once was an angel with eyes brighter than the sun.
Bringer of light, minnesinger primaeval.
Deep in your soul, can you hear the song of Lucifer?
“Break through the waves, rise to infinity!”

Crown of creation, foundation of the universe.
Baptized in light, let the wisdom flow through your veins.
You are Neptunian, the progeny of fissure kings.
Break through the waves, rise to infinity!

Flashes so bright, gnostic visions transcendent,
All laws revealed in a cosmos resplendent.
Scraping the ceiling of unhuman feelings,
Pride burning skyward, submission but fades away.

For the Grail lies within you beneath the waters of your mind,
Churning the waves, turning the maelstrom.
Rise, O Neptunian, from vile pandemonium,
Break through the waves, rise to infinity!

The pride of Lucifer!

Freedom unbound, astral dreamers astray,
Burned by the sun, dark infernal dominion.
Bringer of gnosis or untold psychosis?
Falling from heaven the loveless behold their doom!

The pride of Lucifer!

Oh, fallen the angel with eyes brighter than the sun,
Bringer of light, serpent-singer prime evil.
Deep in your soul, can you hear the song of Lucifer?
“Break through the waves, rise to infinity!”

The Kingpin of Cosmic Evil in Our World. . . and Its Cure

This blog site is about healing the psyche. It’s about a journey into truth. Understanding. Forgiveness. Liberation. Empowerment. Responsibility. Co-creation. The realisation of our potential as vast, multidimensional, divine beings interconnected with all creation.

The major challenge that comes with trying to tell people the truth is that you meet with the limits of what they’re prepared to wrap their minds around and accept. Of how far they’re able to follow you down the rabbit hole. Once you come up against beliefs that the other person can’t or won’t see past, all you can do is lay down some breadcrumbs that they may follow later.

People don’t want to believe in the existence of true evil. Contemplating the reality of it is enough to haunt you, to turn your stomach and rob you of sleep. Acknowledging the reality of it makes you responsible for including it in your worldview and carries the moral obligation to stand up against it. As a society, we have been so psychically neutered, weakened, domesticated, and corrupted that many are simply unequipped to face this reality as it stands.

Warriors are the ones the world relies on to defend against evil. Those who are armed with knowledge. Those who are committed to bringing the light of Home into this world. Carriers of the flame of Spirit whose eyes burn with the holy fire of creation that runs in their veins.

We may not associate ourselves with that image of the warrior. We may see, instead, the weakness and malaise that seem to hold us back and keep us small. The contagion of evil has touched us. Through trauma, we have fallen under its spell of fear.

We do not feel. We go about our business, numb. Hoping that the evil will strike somewhere else and leave us alone. Cowed.

Know this. Evil will not rest until it owns and controls everything. There is no safety in hiding. It must be confronted and brought down for the world to know real peace, freedom, and prosperity.

Clearly, this confrontation must happen both internally and externally. But it must happen internally first for us to have the guts, courage, and conviction to face it externally.

There is a dividing line that represents the structural foundation of evil’s inner stronghold in this world. That line is the decisive borderline beyond which evil reigns supreme. Those who have crossed this Rubicon are owned and possessed, committed agents of true evil. Their spiritual orientation is reversed; they serve Satan, the enemy of life.

You ever hear of celebrities ”selling their souls” for worldly success? We think of recording artists who sign exploitative contracts that obligate them to give up their artistic freedom and ownership of their creative talents. In return, they are promoted by the bankster-owned media machine and their careers take off like never before. However, they ultimately find themselves deep in debt to the record company and discover the bitter personal price of their success.

Hollywood actors like Elijah Wood have been coming out as whistleblowers on the dark underbelly of the film industry: human trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. The FBI has started to make the first low- and mid-level arrests in its campaign to take down the entire elite pedophile network that has been operating in the United States and facilitating the complete takeover of government by traitorous forces bent on enslaving Americans under the worldwide agenda of a small circle of predators. Pizzagate, the damning coded exchanges revealing elite pedophile activity found in John Podesta’s leaked emails, was a carefully-timed bombshell to bring this evil into the public awareness. Yes, it’s all connected: from royal families to banking families to the business, political, and religious elite and their lying mouthpiece media, the structures of control are held in place by the glue of a fractal hierarchy of fear and domination whose core and apex are forged of an iron characterized by the psychic will to violate innocent, defenseless children.

This trauma, this betrayal, is not something out there that we can safely ignore. It touches all of us personally through the collective consciousness field. Satanic pedophilia is the extreme manifestation of unchecked ego consciousness, of reptilian fear mode running so rampant that all emotional vulnerability, empathy, higher thought, and conscience must be destroyed to make way for the dictates of darkness: kill and be killed, eat and be eaten. That maelstrom of fear believed in and obeyed is the black hole that eats our consciousness and life force. It underlies our personal departures from the way of life. It is death and knows only death.

The trauma experienced by a small child whose own parents betray the sacred trust of parenthood and give them over to torture and abuse and violation, to psychic invasion by the malevolent dark, resides within our collective unconscious. The agony of opening up to that denied portion of ourselves, to the abandoned and forsaken inner child, is the threshold of the warrior. Only knowing the true horror of our situation on a head, heart, and gut level will grant us the conviction, the empathy, and the fortitude to change it. Only by meeting that horror with an equal measure of faith and love for life can we hope to withstand its assault. In fact, we do not withstand – we are destroyed. The part of us that believes in limitation and control is destroyed. Saturn eats its children. Satan devours its own.

To hold back from that horror, that agony, is to hold back something that belongs to the devil. He will claim it. It’s up to us to release it. To make the leap from delusional outer knowing to self-existent inner knowing. To let all the shackles of the heart melt in pain... and evaporate in bliss. To ground ourselves in our complete universal and individual unity, in solitary solidarity, yogic union. To commit to a process of divine destruction and re-creation. Death and rebirth.

Every time love calls upon us and we heed that call, we take another step home. Our Home is within us – we never left. Our true Father and Mother, Brother and Sister, Friend and Lover, Christ-child and Indwelling Spirit are all working within us and throughout our holographic self-projection of a world to repair the broken linkages, clear the psychic gunk, and turn on the lights of our DNA Christmas Tree of Life.

I ask that we pray for the children who have been stolen, hurt, and sacrificed. Let their pain be our pain. Let us console our forlorn inner child with the good news: my child, I have always loved you. I never left you. I will protect and provide for you always and never lead you astray. You are safe. You can be who you inherently are without fear of judgment. I will guide you and support you and celebrate you as you grow. I love you. I love you. I love you forever.

Let us also support the efforts of the many men and women who are actively engaged in taking down global pedophilia. Let us not remain silent on this horrible subject, complicit through the tacit approval of inaction. Above all, let us not abandon our inner child to the spiritual darkness and cold of a prison of shame, disgust, and unworthiness. Let us bring the flame of loving, tender awareness to every darkened corridor on its path to freedom. Let us tame the monsters with our fearless, unflinching gaze. Let us unchain our abilities, activate our alliances, and reoccupy the land of our true self.

We cannot make this journey alone. But the help we need always comes.

Godspeed, dear ones. Wherever we may find ourselves on the spiritual battlefield of this plane, we are always connected. The family of God is truly universal. We cannot redeem our fallen brothers and sisters, but we can make the choice of redemption for ourselves and extend the same possibility to others.

In Lak’ech. May only peace abide in your presence.

love, william

The endgame is upon us. Don't panic!

My dear fellow human travelers on this voyage of self-discovery,

It has been astonishing and truly mind-boggling how this quickening has accelerated on the inner and outer planes. We are doing magnificently, and all that’s needed is for us to not lose heart, stay focused and stay the course. Even if that means taking an entire evening or a week to feel into what we really want, who we are, what’s real and what’s not, to let stuff come up and just observe it as it is with tender acceptance. There is and will be also the time to exert ourselves, to consciously and intentionally muster and direct our energies into constructive, needful, and transformative pathways of action. I feel that these two modes, yin and yang, may eventually be felt to merge into a larger whole that one might call the flow of Being, where there is no longer a personal sense of pushing or pulling or being pushed or pulled. We’re one with it. Informing and being informed. Intending and surrendering. Giving and receiving. In harmony.

I look at the world in this turbulent time and I see a beautiful, elegant process taking place through the appearance of danger and uncertainty. Our greatest hopes and our greatest fears are coming to meet us on the field of experience. The more we can willingly forgive and let go of old, limiting beliefs and conditioning, the smoother time we will have of it as life gives us exactly what we need to catalyze the necessary transformations.

A new world is coming. Are we tired of hearing that? I can assure you, life is in the process of making it happen. And no, you don’t need my assurance to know it for yourself. I can’t tell you anything you don’t already know. What I say comes from my own experience. Yours will tell you whatever you need to know.

I watch Alex Jones getting worked up into a holy righteous wrath-of-God human torch of fury and passion as he steps up the fight, day by day, against the tyranny of the oppressors. I see David Seaman calling for fair trials and public hangings of those who have wantonly violated defenseless, innocent children while the world slumbered. I empathize with these emotionally-charged currents of energy. I can feel them inside myself without blindly identifying with them. These guys essentially want the same things I do. I don’t want evil to rule the world and make it a place of bondage and torment for conscious, feeling beings. I want justice. I want peace. I want to live in a world where we can all have a fair chance at happiness. Not at others’ expense, but through caring and mutual support. Through respect.

Respect comes from boundaries. The recognition that there is an I and a You that are separate but equal, uniquely different beings with a common ground of Being. Individuality and free will are absolute, bedrock underpinnings in this reality we share. Natural law – universal law – arises on that basis and on the basis of our mutual, inherent divinity. We do nothing to another that we would not allow to be done to ourselves if we were in their place. Free will, sacrosanct, preserved by obeying the inner law of Spirit. We need not even necessarily keep a formulation of that law in outward observance as long as we are observing and feeling and moving from a place of deep truth within. Which is why all lies must go. All distortions of truth must dissolve from our being. This is the alchemy underway.

I am aware of the perspective that all this drama is just another story. Stories within stories, layers upon layers. Yes, eventually consciousness lets go of all narratives. Eventually we step out of a linear mindset and enter the holy moment, not knowing who we are, where we came from, or where we’re going. These narratives we are all caught up in, even the narratives of struggling to free ourselves and help the world, of striving for excellence and goodness against all odds and all the forces arrayed against them, of seeing through and escaping the Matrix mind-trap, of being a personal identity forging its way and being guided through a journey from an old-me in the past to a new-me in the future – all these pass out of being the definition of our reality and become just stories in the mind. What’s happening is a story, yes – but we are meant to live it, fully, to embrace our roles without fear or favor, to give ourselves away to each moment and receive all that it offers us without resistance.

Being caught up is part of the game. It really does add a whole new flavor, doesn’t it? We can really get into these personas and identify with them one hundred percent. It’s beautiful. None of us is better or worse for being awake or asleep. We can’t earn a place on a hierarchy, whether it’s a hierarchy of consciousness or any other, that makes any difference to the absolute of who we are. Within the game, sure. If we want to make up hierarchies and live them out as real, that’s our choice. Free will, right? It’s beautiful.

The world is shaped by intent. We see chaos and confusion because our consciousness has been occluded to the point where that’s what we manifest. As a mirror of where we are as a collective. There is no collective out there as an entity to blame for our tragedies. No, we are individuals first and always, with full individual responsibility for our creations. It’s only lack of awareness that even makes it possible for us to abdicate responsibility. With awareness comes greater possibility to choose. We can choose to nurture and fulfill our potential. To push our limits. To let the crashing waves of restless thought and energy subside and allow a stillness where ever finer currents can be felt. We can choose how to meet the world we face, knowing that what we put out will come back to us.

The music and dance of creation impel us. We are drawn by great archetypal forces as they move in a cosmos that is the body and mind of a great whole beyond what we can yet comprehend. There is no shame in being a fallible, imperfect human. There is no shame in being a robot-like, scripted puppet on strings like the hosts of Westworld. What matters is the journey toward self-awareness. The evolution of agency. The germination of the spore of compassion. The eventual unfolding and spiraling out into conscious participation with the dance of all that is.

The cold, empty sterility of outer space need not be our fate. We have a place here where growth can happen. All the elements we need are gifted to us here. The Earth will support us if we but dare to push out into the soil and the light.

Happy trails, guys and gals. We’re awesome and we’re gonna be just fine. We are humanity and we can show ourselves and this world what we’re truly made of. Let’s roll. I love you.

yours, william
