I Wish I Could Talk In Technicolor


I’M READING Daniel Pinchbeck‘s ‘Breaking Open the Head‘ (Broadway Books, 2002) and am starting to believe that psychedelic drugs are literally a key to other dimensions. 11 dimensions to be exact, which scientists like Michio Kaku are endorsing.

Psychedelics seem to let us see things that our ‘normal’ closed mind won’t let us. Different drugs open different dimensions.

Here’s a video going viral right now from a time when LSD was not illegal.

By no means am I endorsing the use of illegal hallucinogenic drugs but the idea is certainly fascinating, isn’t it?

Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith is the founder and Spiritual Director of the Agape International Spiritual Center in Los Angeles, author of the award-winning book, Spiritual Liberation, and featured contributor to the book and film, “The Secret.”

The core of his message is that, “Oneness is the foundation piece of every authentic spiritual path. Spiritual practice provides the right conditions for people to wake up to the awareness that we are not separate from each other, from nature, and from God and that we are all intricately connected in a field of unity. This awareness liberates us from the thought forms that create fear and doubt and we see that life is conspiring for our good.”

He was recently interviewed by Connections Radio (Spirit Radio Network)  click here to go to the interview with Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith The stream will automatically begin.

I urge you to listen to and understand his message as his is an integral part of “The Nous Age Principal”.

God Has An Image Problem


From someone who’s entire working life is  dedicated to image building in one form or another, as a marketing consultant or broadcaster, I have come to the professional conclusion that God has an image problem.

For a large part of the world God is seen as an old man with a long white beard who’s not only angry but spiteful…he sits on his throne up in heaven somewhere above the clouds and judges us…all of us on an ongoing basis. We accept that as fact and go about our lives cowering accordingly.

For another chunk of the world they just don’t believe in him at all…possibly because they can’t buy into the image…it’s ridiculous!

And I couldn’t agree more.

George Carlin spells it out better than me in this video.

Who’s Image Is It?
God’s image problem can’t be solved by a make over. The trouble is that we are the one’s who made him that way….in our image!

Yes, yes, I know…I can hear the evangelical’s getting ready with their verbal slingshots to tell me “WE were created in HIS image”. No. That is simply a vicious rumour.

Our concept of someone that is all knowing and all seeing can only be of an older man who looks down at us with utter contempt because he is so much better than us. If you were all knowing and all seeing you’d probably feel the same way about those beneath you too, right? Ergo …we created him in OUR image.

God has been miscast. He is not a he or an ‘it’. God is a never ending energy that is closer to you than you can imagine.

God’s New Image
God’s new image can only start inside of you and that’s because that is where God is in the first place. Use prayer or meditation to look inside of yourself, look carefully and you will soon see God. Yes, through quiet contemplation you will soon discover your divinity!

When you begin to feel a warmth in the middle of your upper chest that seems to radiate out the longer you hold your focus on it, you’ll know you’ve discovered it. That powerful sense of peace, calmness, creativity is God. I don’t mean god-like…it is actually God. Right there inside of you! Crazy!

It Starts with You
Once you are able to recognize and accept what’s been inside of you all along and others around you are able to do the same we will be able to change the world. For the lack of a better analogy God is a co-op and we all need to participate.

I tell my kids all the time that there are 2 ways to do something, the easy way and the right way. It’s easy to blame somebody else for your problems, most people do that on a regular basis “I was late to work because of the traffic”, “the dog ate my homework”, etc. But the right way is to take responsibility, accept your divinity and let’s start co-creating the world of our dreams!

Make Your Own Path


There’s a Buddhist saying that describes religion as being like a raft, once you’ve crossed the river you don’t carry that raft on your back to your destiniation, do you? After you’ve made it to the opposite shore leave your raft there and continue on foot without the oppressive weight of your raft (or religion) on your back.

Likewise there is another Buddhist saying that insists that if religion were a raft don’t stay on it too long or you will get washed out to sea where you will be forced to stay and deal with the consequences.

Religion A Good Start
I’ve always said that religion is an excellent starting point for a spiritual life…sort of like ‘Spirituality 101’. But after that you’re on your own, you need to make your own way.

Most of the problems on Earth are caused by people who are trying to carry their raft…or who have stayed on their raft too long.

Your Path to Enlightenment
There are 6 1/2 billion people on the planet and there are 6 1/2 billion paths to enlightenment. We are creative souls…get creative…ask questions!

Don’t carry your religion like a raft, don’t stay on your raft too long and mostly importantly, don’t follow me….make your own path.

Do You Déjà Vu?



I have always had déjà vu. For me it’s never been a question of if it was ‘real’ or not, for me it’s just a part of my life. What usually happens in my case is that I have a very vivid dream, unlike the dreams that I have around them. My déjà vu dreams have a kind of glow to them and I recognize them as something important and make a mental note of them. Then sometime in the future the dream comes true.

My Experience
What I’ve discovered is that the dreams seem to “come true” during stressful periods of my life. I tend to have déjà vu a couple of times a month.

While most of my déjà vu are only short glimpses the last one I had lasted 15 minutes! My heart was pounding because I knew what was going to happen, it was exilerating! In fact I was able to use my precognition to help solve a problem I was having! Crazy…here’s the story:

I’m pretty proficient in html code but this day I was under the gun to finish a website design, I was having a hard time figuring out how to make the design do what I wanted it to do and that’s when it started. As the déjà vu was progressing I remembered how I solved the problem and was able to fix the code and get the website to work.

What Is Déjà Vu
I believe that time is an illusion, that all ‘time’ exists at once. We experience time as we do so that our little brains don’t explode. Think of time as a 33 1/3 record…our perception of ‘the now’ is the needle of the record player. I think it’s possible to access the future as easily as it is to access the past but I haven’t figured how to do it in a controled way. Sometimes it happens by accident in our dream state…and that’s what we call déjà vu.

Like anything you need to practice to get better, I’ve been déjà vu-ing for 45 years.

So do you déjà vu? Tell me about your experience with it…how does it work for you? Have you had any unique experiences?

What’s Wrong With WordPress?


FIRST OFF let me clarify, it’s not just what’s wrong with WordPress but all blogs and forums…in fact any website whose raison d’être is to be a hub of information sharing and dialogue.

I’m a broadcaster by trade, I’ve been communicating ideas for over 20 years. Likewise, I’m not new at this, I’ve been blogging on different subjects for years, this blog The Nous Age (pronounced ‘New’ Age), is my latest effort and the culmination of much research and thought.

The Beginning
When I discovered blogging in 2004 I was drawn to it’s touted ability to bring people together for dialogue about a given subject and at first it seemed so. But the more I look at it today I realize that it has done the opposite, it has polarized people about ideas. Where I have gone looking for open dialogue I have been threatened with deletion.

Rather than helping people become more informed about topics that they never would have been exposed to had blogging not existed, it has simply brought together people of like minds and solidified their ideas no matter how arcane they seem.

What I’ve Learned From Blogging
My subject is spirituality. I went from being a devout “church every Sunday” Christian to a free thinking spiritualist that has now discovered deeper meaning through profound dialogue with various people from around the globe that I encountered over the years. I have come to conclusions about religion and spirit which I am now sharing through this blog. (The New Age, Destination 2012, The Universe Is Conscious)

Not to say my philosophy is set-in-stone, it’s not. I am open to other ideas which is part of what I’m calling The Nous Age Principle. A year from now perhaps I won’t agree with 5% of what I believe today and that’s ok, because that’s what open and honest dialogue does, right?

The Challenge
Today I give you a challenge, visit another blog and leave a comment for someone who you don’t agree with. I don’t mean to instigate a literary food fight…I mean to  instigate a dialogue, even if the outcome is only to agree that you disagree. You never know how many seeds you’ll plant through that one gesture. Get out of your comfort zone…

This is The Nous Age, it’s here if you want it!

Exploration: Past Life Regression


Dolores Cannon is a past-life regressionist and hypnotherapist who specializes in the recovery and cataloging of what can be called “lost knowledge”. Some of her discoveries have been controversial (Conversations with Nostradamus, Keepers of the Garden) to say the least, others simply fascinating. Her roots in hypnosis go back to the 1960s. She has been specializing in past-life therapy since 1979.

As you may already know I have been reading some of her work for quite some time now (Convoluted Universe 1, Convoluted Universe 2 and now her latest book Convoluted Universe 3) and referencing some of her amazing lost knowledge discoveries here.

Visiting Montreal
In July 2008 it was my distinct honour to interview her while she was here in Montréal for a conference and to teach her hypnotherapy technique to a class full of eager student’s. Despite being here in Montréal her schedule only permitted a telephone interview but that didn’t deter us one bit from quickly getting into concepts of consciousness, 2012 prophecy and The New Earth.

The following are the ten questions I posed to her. To hear Dolores’ response to my question click on the ‘play’ icon below each question. (ex. )

The Interview

Q1. Tell me about your regression technique, how did you develop it?

Q2. What makes your technique special?

Q3.What was your original reaction when you realized what you had stumbled on?

Q4. How do you deal with skeptics?

Q5. Could you elaborate a little on this idea of “The New Earth”?

Q6. Will people notice any changes?

Q7. I’m reading a book by physics professor Amit Goswami [1][2][3] called “The Self Aware Universe” (1995) where he makes a case for the idea that in the evolutionary process consciousness came before matter…that the only “reality” is consciousness…and that matter is a by-product of consciousness itself rather than the other way around. Is this idea consistent with your research”? In Convoluted Universe 2 one of your subjects said that the afterlife experience is more real than what we (in this life) perceive as reality…

Q8. …when I clarified Amit Goswami’s thesis, by saying that he is scientifically proving what she’s been saying she reacted like this…

Q9. Based on your research what would you say is God?

Q10. Is God consciousness?

Conclusion
I believe that our modern world is based on fundamentally flawed conceptions of time and mind and that on this shaky foundation we have built a civilization which as it grows is becoming increasingly shaky (see, stock market and political news). Dolores Cannon’s work is helping to expose the need to rethink all of our grand assumptions and to establish a new paradigm.

The Universe is Conscious



Our Universe is conscious. It is aware of and responding to it’s surroundings. What we perceive as our own individual consciousness is in fact simply a part of what can be called Universal Consciousness. Our ‘local’ consciousness can be seen as being like a drop of water that is a part of an infinite ocean. It is both the drop and the ocean simultaneously and so are we. This is my clearest and most direct explanation of The Nous Age Principle.

Creating Matter
Contrary to what science has been telling us, consciousness is not created by the brain…in fact it might be ventured to say that consciousness itself …creates matter! But that is the subject of a different post.

The Problem Solver
This problem of consciousness is the geocentrism of our time. Accepting that the Earth is one of several planets that orbits the Sun instantly solved countless mathematic problems created by the geocentric model. Likewise, accepting the idea that consciousness is the ground of all being will solve many so-called “problems” that science prefers remain in-the-closet. Problems like: telepathy, deja-vu, remote viewing, precognition, paranormal activity, etc.

Yearning for a new way will not produce it. Only ending the old way can do that. – Neale Donald Walsch

I believe the paradigm shift necessary to accept this idea is imminent and will be the dawn of what I’ve dubbed The Nous Age…it’s here if you want it!

Religion Is Flawed


Religion is flawed. When human beings try to define or “pin-down” spiritual things they corrupt them. When you love something so much that you take it out of it’s natural habitat and place it in a cage to control it, you can’t help but destroy it’s essence. No matter how hard you try not to, you will change it, the walls of it’s cage becoming it’s very definition. God has no boundaries and is undefinable. How can you define something which lies outside our 3-dimensional perception?

Lucretius (99 BC – 55 BC) said:

Tantum religio potuit saudere malorum (Too much religion is apt to encourage evil)

And he was right despite not having seen what was to come courtesy of the Abrahamic traditions.

Metareligion
This blog is not out to ‘get religion’ like some visitors have insinuated, this blog is trying to bring forward what I call a ‘meta-religion’ or the religion behind all religions…if that is indeed possible. I’m not talking about the so-called Golden Rule either, that is a morality code. Metareligion is the undefinable which drives our search for meaning. As such metareligion must remain undefined…for to define it would be to corrupt it.

The Nous Age Principle, at it’s basis, is a declaration that we are all one…that we are connected in a fundamental yet deeply profound way. Religions tell us “we are all one…if you believe like we do”. By defining yourself this way you are putting yourself into a cage.

Rise Up
By bringing spirit down to our level, by defining it in our terms, we destroy it. Spirit cannot survive on our level, if anything, we have to rise up to meet it.
