A New Member of The Malleable Light

August 7th, 2009

Hi there,

Thank you David for inviting me to join in on this site. Thanks also to Emmy and Renate.

I’ve found The Malleable Light a splendid tool for maintaining my motivation on Astral Travel & Lucid Dreaming and I’m excited about joining the team :) .

My spiritual interest has always been present even as a small child. I did loose focus for a while as a teenager but rediscovered the search in my early twenties. I would call myself highly philisophical and desire to further understand what we are doing here on this planet Earth, and for that reason I also desire to further understand what it actually means to be alive and aware. This world we live in seems governed by an Intellegence and I desire to understand it and our role in it.

I first encountered Lucid Dreaming in about 1998 giving me a resonable depth of experience on this topic.

I am a virgo sun sign, turn 32 this month and am a mature age university student in my final year of a Naturopathic degree. Interests outside of meditation, AP, LD etc are sport (all types), health (hence the naturopathy) and music.

I may at times post experiences of Lucid Dreams or Astral experiences but find experiences from my everyday life and insights I gain through life totally relevant and worthy of mention on this site. When my insight feels deep and effects me profoundly, either energetically or spiritually, I shall post these experiences here also.

Please do not take what I say as Truth, however what I post here will be my Truth as I perceive it at the time. I am human and am simply offering my opinion and experience.

Thanks again to David & I hope you enjoy reading what I have to offer.

Peace be with you,

Dean :)

Chapel of Sacred Mirrors

April 7th, 2009

I really don’t search for these things, they just show up most of the time. The same friend that subtly mentioned astral projection to me over a ten year span suggested that I watch a movie called Chapel of Sacred Mirrors.

The movie is about the progress of the soul as depicted through the art work and narration of an artist by the name of Alex Grey who I had remarkably never heard of.

He starts out by reviewing the human anatomy and then moves on to energy systems and how they merge together with the physical. He explores first incarnation, birth, life, spiritual enlightenment, death, the place after we die before we are reborn and then reincarnation.

Below I have selected a painting from the later part of the movie. His painting here describes a point in our progress where we see past our constricted egos and consider not only our collective consciousness on this planet but our cosmic consciousness and interconnectedness with the vast galactic web.

This movie is a great example of how the universe can speak through the physical when a person has a passion for what they do and they open their mind to their inner self. The artwork is breathtaking, inspiring and insightful. This is another movie that I highly recommend.

You will find a link to the DVD under my recommended products or the movie can be watched on google by clicking here.

Spirit Space

April 5th, 2009

It’s my current belief that thoughts and intention literally create the universe around us. I should also mention that my version of the universe is more than stars, galaxies, physical matter, observable phenomenon and the vastness of space. It’s my opinion that the physical / tangible universe may only be 0.00000000000001% of the actual universe, and that’s assuming it’s finite.

Needless to say I am constantly setting intentions throughout each day and one of these intentions is to experience and understand nonphysical dimensions of my existence though expanded awareness into non local areas of my existence. Sometimes these intentions are answered by giving me direct communication or contact with these areas and other times it seems that the universe simply presents me with new reading material, a new documentary or perhaps a new friend or person in my life that has information to share on the subject. Last week the universe sent me a new movie called Spirit Space through my Wife’s facebook account.

I have been telling people lately that I no longer follow any established religion and instead I follow my own path which is not of faith but of direct fluctuating experience. Spirit Space is comprised of a similar group of scientific and spiritual experts who have also decided to walk their own path.

The cast; Miguel Ruiz, Laurie Monroe, Dr. Fred Alan Wolf, Linda Gabriel, Dr. Linda Backman, Dr. Edgar Mitchell and F.Holmes “Skip” Atwater delve into areas such as the soul, consciousness, belief systems, astral projection, out of body experiences, past lives, quantum physics, human evolution and what happens to us after we die.

The message I took away from this film is that we all have the ability to experience things beyond that of which our physical bodies perceive and that organized religions are nothing more than part of the overall truth which is created by our thoughts. It was very refreshing to see this type of film because it indicates to me that there is an awakening that’s taking place which suggests that humans and animals are evolving as physical beings into purely spiritual beings.

I highly recommend this film for anyone who has an open mind and is searching for the truth through experience rather than just science and religion. The movie is 20 bucks and I have added a link to it under my “Recommended Products” on the left.

Hell in the Pacific

March 17th, 2009

This will be a short post inspired by a three hour philisophical discussion, in which a man of strong religious beliefs who I have great respect for tried to sway me into his belief system. We discussed “The Ultimate Truth”, and how religions or the lack of religion fit into the search for it. I will not disclose which religion or who I discussed this with, as it is not relevant to this blog entry.

When I was younger, one of my favorite movies was “Hell in the Pacific”, which tells the story of two men, one American and one Japanese, marooned on a small uninhabited island in the Pacific. They survive by accepting their differences and working together, despite the fact that their two countries are at war. At the end of the movie, after calling a truce, a magazine brings their conversation back to religion and war and therefore ending the truce and they begin fighting again. Minutes later a bomb lands on them and blows them to pieces. Last night’s discussion reminded me of this movie.

Our main disagreement stemmed from a hypothetical person who chooses a predefined organized religious path versus one who simply chooses his own path and how this choice will ultimately lead to “The Ultimate Truth”. The one thing that we both agreed on, is that neither of our beliefs or paths made sense to the other.

My current observation is that there may or may not be an “Ultimate Truth”; however, my logical but currently limited human brain tells me that there most likely is. What doesn’t make sense about all of this is when a person expects his religion to make sense to others and tries to force it on them. Based on the information I have collected, no one knows what the “Ultimate Truth” is or even if it exists. There are various religions of various popularity, spread across virtually every culture, all attempting to discover “The Ultimate Truth.”

My personal belief is that Earth and humans are a VERY small part of the overall picture, and confining oneself to one physical world, or even worse, to one religion, will limit one who chooses to do so. Be happy if you have found your path, even if it is a limiting path. It’s fine to share your discoveries with others, but realize that not everyone will be or will want to be on that same path and all paths may “Ultimately” lead to the same truth in one form or another.

It seems that the truth gets lost in interpretation, or perhaps the truth IS the interpretations which exist in religious silos. It’s possible that the “Ultimate Truth” lies in the absence of any interpretation. I think that the key here is to respect others for what they believe even if it doesn’t make sense to you, because it’s very likely that what you believe doesn’t make sense to them either, and that’s ok.
