I wrote this immediately after having had a transformational experience that lasted some eight hours. Three themes were going through my mind: (1) the upliftment of the experience, (2) there is nothing to fear – that is, from an absolute, not a relative, viewpoint, and (3) reality suction. I’m not sure I’d publish it today, when my feet are back on the ground, since it’s a little scattered, but I leave it up since it has been published. It does illustrate the release of creativity during a peak experience.
A long time ago, when all the money I had went into buying me a spot in a human-potential course, we would always be wowed by the latest notion that came along.
In those days (the mid-Seventies), some encounter group leader would come out with a new saying and it would become the rage.
There was of course a truth at the bottom of it and learning that truth was why we took up the notion.
So for instance, someone might take a course from John Enright and come away saying, “You’re either doing it and digging it or there’s a payoff.”
Or from Werner Erhard and be saying, “I got it” or “you really make a difference.”
We would look puzzled at the new idea until such time as we would “get it.”
I chuckle at our lemming behavior back then, but that was the way we learned.
One notion that has stuck with me over the years is the notion of “reality suction.” Some psychotherapist whose name is lost to me came up with the idea that we’re either sucking someone into our reality or else being sucked into theirs.
And that’s all that’s going on. Reality suction.
Well, darn it, it’s true. The right is trying to suck the left into its view of reality and vice versa. The dominant religion is trying to suck the minority religion into its view of reality and vice versa. Men are with women, and women are with men.
And I just noticed that SaLuSa, Matthew, Jesus, Buddha, and Sanat Kumara are – and so am I.
I’m selling an idea and you either buy it or you don’t. And it’s OK either way!
What’s that idea?
That idea is there’s nothing to fear.
Notice that, if you take the position there is something to fear, in the universe as it’s presently designed, there very soon will be something to fear because by the Law of Attraction, we draw to us, not only what we love and want, but also what we resist and fear.
But nonetheless here I am selling that idea and trying to suck you into that view of reality.
To do so, I would then go on to list all the many reasons why there is nothing to fear:
(1) The galactics have the technology to override the dark’s weapons, ground their vehicles, etc.
(2) The Company of Heaven have arranged for an abundance program to succeed the crashed financial system.
(3) The galactics are moderating Earth changes and cleaning up pollution.
(4) We are immortal and cannot die anyway.
(5) All is illusion.
(6) And so on.
It doesn’t matter that I really, really do believe that there is nothing to fear. Here I am selling that notion nevertheless.
So I just want to be really frank that (1) there is nothing to fear and (2) here I am selling that notion. I’m sitting by the river selling Magongo baskets. You either buy or you don’t.
One fellow recently sent me an angry email: UNSUBSCRIBE! I got it. You’re not buying Magongo baskets!
All those who are not buying will write nasty comments, scornful emails and then disappear. All those who are buying the notion will stay around. That’s what we’re doing here.
And you will sell notions on the Galactic Forum. And we will buy or we will not.
So that’s what’s going on here: we’re selling notions.
The notion that we’re going to ascend in 2012. The notion that the dark has been subdued and just hasn’t given up yet. The notion that the Company of Heaven respects our freedom of will, except in certain circumstances. The notion that we’re bound for the Fifth Dimension and not in a beautiful balloon. The notion that we never die. This is a community of notions.
Everything that’s happening here is reality suction.
There’s no escaping it. I am the product of all my past suction. I stand to become a greater agglomeration. Not like any notion is in the end worth a grain of salt. But, taken together and until such time as I think non-dualistically (an oxymoron if I ever heard one), they do define my openness and precondition my receptivity.
So hear ye, hear ye. Come and get it. There is nothing to fear. Do I know if I am absolutely correct on that? No. Can there be a breakdown? You betcha.
But that context will still define my outlook and it’s still what I’ll sell till the sun goes down and the sun comes up and the sun goes down: There’s nothing to fear.
Five minutes ago, looking at a tree outside my window that turned completely red and orange while I wasn’t looking, I got it: there’s nothing to fear. I sold myself. I assumed that reality. I realized it and completely entered into it, hook, line and sinker.
Though I got it today and will lose it tomorrow, there’s nothing to fear.
