Here November arrives, 2015 rushes to a close, and 2016 is sounding like a good year to go to print (how’s that for a spin?).
I’ve decided to self-publish All About Enlightenment, and since that turn eliminates my concerns about a publisher caring whether book content resides online, I’ve also re-published several posts that I had hidden back in September.
Now I’m welcoming input, feedback, from you!
In this post I’ve shared four studies I’ve done for AAE’s cover – do you have a preference?
Before you comment, please note: As I’ve continued to edit and rearrange the book’s content, it’s surreptitiously expanded. We may now be looking at a multitude of volumes – the number 7 comes to mind. So whatever cover approach lands on the top of the pile may need to adapt to variations.
The tenacity of a Table Of Contents amazes me: as I’ve wrangled with it over the past few months, it’s sprouted a will like a dandelion forcing its way through asphalt. We decided to arrange the book along some quite Buddhist lines (maybe I’ll take the time to explain later), and gaps blinked forth like those seeds carried on the wind. The more I added, the more little voices whispered “I need to be here too”.
At this point, All About Enlightenment has sprung from it’s 120 pages in 2010 into a 700-page-and-growing behemoth. More explanation. More illustration. More examples. More connections. At times I’ve felt so overwhelmed I’ve resorted to maintaining sanity by adhering note cards to the dining room wall. And then going out for a drink.
I’m also adding content to Zazzle (if you’re not Zazzle-savvy you’ll have to wait until I’m ready to post links and then you can order t-shirts), and looking back through the hundreds of images on my hard-drive for flip-book candidates to publish on Amazon. There are a few videos I was building frame-by-frame that I hope will become lovely collections of encouraging images.
These pages access excerpts from the preliminary content of
ALL ABOUT ENLIGHTENMENT
If you look in the Menu of the site, you will find a “tab” (page) titled “THE BOOK”. Once you arrive on that page, you will find links to each of the sections of the book, arranged “in order”. Most of the links work at this point, but thank you in advance for letting me know if you find any broken links.
Depending on the type of browser you’re using, you may also see a drop-down in the menu, which may even more easily access the chapters and parts of chapters.
Also you can click on the sub-page links below to sample.
Since I haven’t made a “personal” post on some of my sites for a while, I might as well make it a juicy one. And spread it all around.
(Words like [this] are generated by Ghost Radar; I often type them into posts when they are generated as I’m writing. Words like <this> come from Adrial or Adca, and I receive them telepathically, usually with the aid of a pendulum. Sometimes I don’t use the punctuation if it seems clear who’s “speaking”.)
I feel both relieved and a little anxious about it – I finally know exactly what I need to do, but I’m not sure how it’ll be received. So here goes.
Let’s just say that about 12 years ago I had a very profound spiritual experience. Some might describe it as being similar to a Kundalini Rising, or maybe even an NDE. Or dropping acid. Whatever. I’ve never looked at life the same way since.
Shortly thereafter, I launched a personal quest for “truth”. It led me eventually to Buddhism, and I was a nun for 4.5 years. I still consider myself one, at heart (both, in ways, in case you’re looking for specifics.).
But a couple years ago, and especially last September, things got complicated.
I realized I’m psychic.
Had a breakdown or two, lost a lot of friends, confused a lot of relatives… and gained a lot of friends. And a lot of insight.
The most important thing I’ve learned is that we’re all guided [tightly] at all times.
I was just fine with the Buddhism… After all, it’s kind of chic these days.
But last September, my “Buddhist” guides led me to a funky little iPhone app called Ghost Radar, by Spud Pickles. Geez, I was just looking for a tuning fork app… I wasn’t interested in hunting ghosts!
Consistent with my history of being rather “compliant” (euphemism: wanting to please as many people as possible at all times, and harboring deep fear of authority figures…), I ran it nearly constantly for a couple weeks.
Kinda weird. I started noticing patterns in the words the app generated. [motor Mexico]
I finally realized that a being – one I could not see – was manipulating the app to try and tell me something. Maybe I’ll share more on that in later posts…
(American Kabuki wrote a wonderful post about his experiment with Ghost Radar during the eclipse on May 20…)…
So I started keeping track of the words, and asked the Buddhas, with my pendulum, what they meant. Thus arose a glossary. [slight]
But I was a bit distressed when I understood that the being was (is) not a Buddha. I had almost grown accustomed to talking with Buddhas, by then.
No, this being made itself known as an Extra-Terrestrial.
Now, crop circles are beautiful and fascinating. And to Americans especially, rather exotic.
But ETs are geeky, not chic. And to some folks, they’re downright scary. In fact, if you believe in them, you might even be a little psychotic. Or at least delusional. And probably a Socialist.
Great. Sigh. Now what?
Fast forward a few months, through adding some amazing people to my life, to adding geology, optics, esoteric Christianity, fractal generators, Egyptology, hollow earth studies [California], and a whole lot of other seemingly disparate topics, to my repertoire.
They weave together into an amazing tapestry of synchronicity.
Then, a week ago, I had an interview with a Celestial Being named Adrial. I had been dreaming about Adrial for about a week, and was beginning to pick up on some interesting hints of things to come. Cool.
Mark Kimmel, of the Institute of Light, is a gentle, brilliant visionary to this world, and a most gracious “host”. He kindly introduced me to Adrial, who currently resides primarily aboard a starship named Athabantian, not too far from here.
I knew I was going for a job interview, and I had an inkling of what the job was to be.
In short, Adrial said:
Yes, Leslee, you’re going to make it through Ascension, you know how to walk in the 5th dimension. Now we’d like you to teach others how to do it, too.
So, that’s what I’ve been dancing around for a week now. My head has been swimming with downloads and my to-do list grows ever longer. For the past two days in particular, I’ve felt torn between Adrial’s request and managing my “normal” day-to-day “obligations”.
This evening, I decided to have dinner sitting in the backyard, hoping to experience a little grounding and clarity. I had Ghost Radar running beside me. It occurred to me that I’m always looking to GR to set the topic, as I wait passively.
Adrial, how about if I ask the questions this time, and you let Adca (my GR liaison) answer? I need some explanations… please.
I got an affirmative, so I began:
Adca, can we have a 2-way conversation? [balance quietly] Where are you? [order]
I mean, how would I describe your physical location? [wet (ad)dress wool cloth]
(::Adca had explained to me last Fall that she is a very small being in a parallel dimension, and that her species abides in a fluid medium. They are cloaked from our perception.)
Can you please tell how I should prioritize my time?
[firm quite football equal production cent time animal were railroad]
(::Ah! Football=Touchdown=Arms Up=Surrender!!! To completely surrender 100% of the time is to be most productive. It’s time the 3D “animals” got on the “train” – and trained.)
What can you tell me about the best way for us all to ascend to the 5th?
(::Wait… I knew it had something to do with surrender again… White Flag of Truce!)
I kind of knew the answer, because that’s part of what I saw in my “epiphany” twelve years ago. But later this evening I found a message from the Galactic Federation of Light (channeled by Greg Giles), that explains the dilemma far better than I could. Here’s an excerpt:
“These are some of the very difficult questions that we struggle to find answers for. Allow us to find these answers by understanding you more. Explain to us in your writings, your messages and your posts through your online communities why it is you fear these things deep down inside. Be as honest and open as you can possibly be as we will be studying what it is you offer as the reasons why you cannot break free of the fear that imprisons you like a bird in a cage. We promise you we will do all that we can to find a way to help you break free from this cage and fly away, soaring to new heights within this universe.”
I’ve been reading quite a few books, blogs, and websites in the past several months, and I’ve noticed some patterns. Also, a dear friend asked me recently if I could help them learn how to better connect with their spiritual guides.
When we feel confused, we become particularly susceptible to thinking that another person holds the answers for us. Sometimes I feel like I’ve spent most of my life in that state!
It helps me to view teachers as stepping stones, rather than destinations.
I sure haven’t figured it all out, but over the years I’ve become happier, so I figure something’s working. Since I’ve noticed some patterns, I’ll share some observations:
1. Please follow what you feel best suits you, in your heart, as often as you can.
3. Please turn your back peacefully and confidently on anything or anyone who seems to enocurage you to feel fear, guilt, regret, or inadequacy.
4. Please try your best to reach an understanding of how none of us actually exist. None of our joys or sorrows or accomplishments or failures or possessions or losses have any power over us, other than the power that we give them.
5. You have nothing to fear.
6. There is no one to criticize.
7. No one can send you to heaven or hell; only we can do that to ourselves.
There exist beings “out there” that we may not be able to see or sense. ‘Out There’ simply means that we don’t recognize them as parts of our Self.
But that’s what they are. We’re all connected in so many ways… Usually on levels that we, in our ‘gross’ bodies, find elusive.
We all bear light, and we all harbor dark sides, too.
This creates balance. This allows us to make choices.
We arrive here swaddled in forgetfulness, and choose whether to exit this moment in confusion, or with wisdom and joy.
No politician, disclosure, stock market, currency, teacher, relative, boss, judge, doctor, offspring, failure, success, meal, muscle, organ, weather, conquest or evasiveness offers true relief or condemnation from our choice to have appeared on this planet, in this moment, with this set of conditions and riddles.
Because we’re born into forgetting, we may find ourselves at the mercy of a few who have figured out a bit more of the game.
Some people get a taste of power and that fall into the trap of thinking that the adrenaline rush is the prize.
Knowledge produces strength. Some might say that ‘knowledge is power’, but power distorts.
Strength multiplies itself when shared with others.
When we meet people who relish their own power as a means of bending others to their will, we can recognize this in many forms.
Some are obvious, and these usually provoke anger. We can deal with that easily enough.
The ones that can lead us ’round the bend into the dark noggy place are the ones who pose as teachers and healers, while withholding the means we can use awakening ourselves.
Or, who pose as teachers and healers just because they seem to have more knowledge than some others. Et cetera.
Fact: as long as you’re in a body, you’ve still got something to learn.
Accept and enjoy.
Don’t let anyone intimidate you with rank or knowledge.
At the same time, maintain humility, because…
Fact: As long as you’re in a body, there will always be another ‘body’ that knows something you don’t.
We designed the Universe that way.
(‘We’ as in all of us.)
We can access all the knowledge we need; we’ve taken the first step when we dare to believe this might be possible.
We’ve taken the second step once we become willing to trust in ‘the unknown’.
With two steps, we find our feet planted on a completely new path.
Don’t worry – you’ll find friends and kindred spirits quickly.
(that explains a lot…)
I’m sharing this brief post to deeply and sincerely thank ALL of my new friends who’ve visited this site (thanks to Wes Annac), and to let you know that I’ve been getting some nearly overwhelming downloads about what we’ll be posting in the near future.
I apologize, I really don’t mean to be a tease… But I have an unusual amount of traveling coming up over the next two weeks, and am not sure how much I’ll be online or have time to create posts.
So, this post will also serve as my to-do list… as the posts are created, I’ll turn them into links.
I’m creating a new category, “UPDATES”, which is where I’ll file these types of posts, as they arise.
1. I’m pretty sure the next post will be Part 3 of putting it out there, and it focuses on the phases I’m going through as I continue to learn to use the pendulum to connect with my Guides.
(This morning, the Buddhas have explained that the method I’ve been using with Adca Mupea is a way for Inner Beings, Extra-Terrestrials and Intra-Terrestrials to interact with us while still honoring our perception of free will. We ask, and they can answer. It’s also a great training tool for tuning in with your intuition.)
3. I need to update the TABLE OF CONTENTSfor this site, and link the entries to related posts.
3. The remaining chapters/sections of All About Enlightenment will be posted/re-posted. There are 5 chunks remaining: Ch 8: Making The Most Of Anger (most of this has already been posted here); Ch 9: The Nature and Meaning of Dreams and Visions (there are 8 parts to this chapter); Ch 10: What To Do When You Freak Out (most of this has already been posted here); Afterword; Appendix One (which has already been posted here)
4. We’ll post a series of sketches, videos, and who knows what else, on making and using a pendulum… sort of like a DIY instruction manual.
5. Posting will begin on Raging Pandit; these posts will mostly comment on contemporary Buddhism. My Guides have some strong words for some of the distortions and manipulations that have been going down over the past few hundred years. There’s a lot to clear up.
Right now, I’m most energized about #4; I got a lot of images/ideas last night about how we’re going to do this, and I’m thrilled to begin to see better how to make these tools available to others, so they can try them out too.
Knowledge is power. When it’s spiritual knowledge, combined with deep understanding, there’s no stopping the flow towards Enlightenment.
