Deep and spiritual marination everywhere. In Fairfield, Iowa this kind of 
extremely elevated thing like this lecture is the kind thing that gets talked 
about in all the shops, places and cafes and the kind of thing that we have 
playing on our radios. Deep and spiritual marination everywhere.   It is in the 
air-waves.   It is even on the car radio when you drive around Fairfield, Iowa 
commuting or just out on errands.   It is in the Walkman or on the ipod when 
folks are out walking or biking or doing work, ditch digging  or out with doing 
farm chores.   I'd seriously recommend it for everyone:

 Most you people lurking here and a lot posting here on FFL  I git the

the Veda you can listen to vicariously to give you some feeling as to what we 
are doing here as a meditating community. It is a good lecture that connects 
and does unifies in context a lot of what is going on here really. Anybody on 
Fairfieldlife really ought to listen to this lecture to really be able to 
participate with much of anything to say on Fairfieldlife. It would improve the 
group a lot if we were all on one page at least about certain things and not 
just dumping any ignorant stuff here on this forum.

I should recommend you all listen  to this distinguished lecture  for the good

 Jeffrey Miller became Surya Das about this time. Another pal of mine from

conversing with was Curtis, and *only* if Curtis 'played by Robin's

Well, Curtis laughed his ass off at that tactic, not even bothering to
respond. So Robin took his football and went home. What I don't get is
the ones here who still try to 'protect his memory' as if he wasn't
blowing THEM off at the same time.

Bottom line was that he didn't think Judy was worth sticking around to

he didn't think Share was worth sticking around to talk with, he didn't
think ANYONE here was worth sticking around to talk with. He farted in

Hard to believe, but Barry knows even less than Richard what he's talking about 
where Robin is concerned.
 

 And of course he's also lying. Robin didn't declare that Curtis was the only 
person he was interested in talking with, nor did Curtis laugh his ass off at 
Robin. Rather, after Robin left he was so infuriated by Robin's parting shots 
he went on a rampage of really despicable lies about his interactions with 
Robin.
 

 Curtis finally decided he had to leave FFL after I challenged him on those 
lies and others he came up with, documenting his falsehoods. Good riddance 
 

 And here's a little inside info: Robin decided he wasn't coming back because 
he couldn't abide the corruption of several people here, most especially Curtis 
and Barry and Share. He wasn't blowing any of his friends off.

 In a book I recently read, one of the prosecutors at trial told the
 presiding judge that Kevin Mitnick, The Dark Side Hacker, at one time the
 most wanted hackers by the FBI, could hack into a phone connection at NORAD
 and with a series of whistles, cause a ballistic missile to be launched. Go

 Next, they will be telling us that there's a hidden camera inside every
 Mr. Coffee pot. You better check every ball point pen in the house for cams
 and voice actuated listening devices, while you're at it. LoL!

 Among the more eye-opening claims made by NSA is that it detected what
 CBS terms the “BIOS Plot” – an attempt by China to launch malicious code in
 the guise of a firmware update that would have targeted computers
 apparently linked to the US financial system, rendering them pieces of

  The Darkside Hacker

  Kevin Mitnick, known as the Darkside Hacker, was at one time the
 most-wanted computer criminal in the United States. Law enforcement
 officials convinced a judge that he had the ability to start a nuclear war
 by whistling into a pay phone. One state attorney told the judge that
 Mitnick could somehow dial into the NORAD modem via a payphone from prison
 and communicate with the modem by whistling to launch nuclear missiles.

  According to Douglas, Mitnick managed to hack into some of the country's
 most powerful — and seemingly impenetrable agencies such as the DMV, SSA,
 and the FBI, and large companies, including PacBell, Motorola, Nokia, and
 DEC. Using social engineering and conning employees into giving him
 private information and maneuvering through layers of security. Using
 hacker techniques and social engineering Mitnick gained access to data that
 no one else could.

  The 2012 graphic novel Wizzywig by Ed Piskor is a close allusion to the
 story of Mitnick, with the main character's name replaced with Kevin
 Phenicle. The novel parallels the entire story of Mitnick under the
 codename Boingthump, from his early days of phone phreaking.

  Think your information and your computer is secure? You can yourself a
 lot of trouble by just sending your IP address and password to Kevin
 Mitnick at 2245 N. Green Valley Parkway, Suite 411, Henderson, NV. LoL!

 Richard, I'm pretty sure this is a specialty of the MGC. If they think of you 
 as the enemy, they ignore what's good about you and focus on your mistakes or 
 flaws which of course we all have. 

Trying my best to speak generically, Share, I think you'll find that this is a 
quality shared by Mean Girls everywhere, not just on this forum. If I were to 
pass along the occult view of the 'dynamic' in place in such interactions, it 
would go sorta like this. 

Mean Girls (of any type, or sex) feed on Attention. They are hooked on it in 
the same way that smack addicts are hooked on heroin. And when they see someone 
getting more Attention than they are (or, let's face it on this forum, any 
Attention at all), they get pissed off at those who are attracting the 
Attention because it's Ours, damnit. If one could auto-color posts according 
to psychosis, the posts from Mean Girls would consistently be green, for 
jealousy.  :-)

So anyway, these wannabe occultists see someone else getting the Attention that 
they seek, so they Can't Have That. They have to combat that somehow. The most 
common tactic -- Stage One, as it were -- is to try to attack the person who is 
getting more attention directly, *to make them feel bad, and lose their 
self-confidence*. This first psychic attack is intended to weaken them. 

If it doesn't work, they move on to Stage Two, which involves trying to make 
the other people in the immediate environment see the person who they're paying 
attention to as flawed or broken, as 'less than themselves.' This is the Stage 
in which the Mean Girls usually pull out all the stops. They'll say anything 
they can think of about the person they're trying to demonize, because the 
Whole Purpose is *to* demonize them. Since they *obviously* can't compete on 
equal ground and gain a similar measure of Attention, they attempt to discredit 
the ones who are getting more Attention than they are, in the hopes that it 
will shift back to them.

So *naturally* such people focus on what they perceive as your mistakes or 
faults. *Their* whole act is about pretending that they don't have any. So if 
you do, *you* are not worth paying Attention to, and they are. 

Yeah, right. 

This is such an old, tired act on the Internet that it amazes me that people 
still fall for it. But they do. 

Bottom line from my POV is that *if* people do, and *if* they write you off 
because of what a few Mean Girls say about you, they really aren't worth having 
in your sphere of influence, are they?

 Actually I just realized something: it's probably healthier to have them as 
 enemies than as friends!

You should look into the works of Carlos Castaneda. He may have been a 
charlatan, but a case can be made that everyone else people cite on this forum 
as an authority is, too. :-) Charlatans or not, they occasionally said things 
one can learn from. 

In Carlos' case, the pieces of his philosophy you might wanna look into have to 
do with his characterization of the Petty Tyrant. They're pretty much required 
reading if one wants to survive on the Internet. 


In the strategic inventories of warriors, self-importance figures as
the activity that consumes the greatest amount of energy, hence,
their effort to eradicate it.
     

One of the first concerns of warriors is to free that energy in order
to face the unknown with it. The action of rechanneling that energy
is impeccability.
     

The most effective strategy for rechanneling that energy consists of
six elements that interplay with one another. Five of them are called
the attributes of warriorship: control, discipline, forbearance,
timing, andwill . They pertain to the world of the
warrior who is fighting to lose self-importance. The sixth element,
which is perhaps the most important of all, pertains to the outside
world and is called the petty tyrant.
     

A petty tyrant is a tormentor. Someone who either holds the power of
life and death over warriors or simply annoys them to
distraction.
     

Petty tyrants teach us detachment. The ingredients of the new seers'
strategy shows how efficient and clever is the device of using a
petty tyrant. The strategy not only gets rid of self-importance; it
also prepares warriors for the final realization that impeccability
is the only thing that counts in the path of knowledge.

He Lived as a Sadhu; He Died as a Sadhu:

In 1957 Charan Das, originally an American, lived as
a sadhu in India for over twenty years. Cheerful and
without cares, he roamed the country for part of the
year, going from one holy place to the other, visiting
with brother-sadhus. He died a few years ago.

Excerpt:

I can't tell you how surprised and entertained I was
to read Anne Cushman's piece in Wanderlust about Charan
Das, the sadhu from Texas.

I too had several encounters with Charan Das over the
course of several years. I met him for the first time
in Delhi in early 1990 -- he was a friend of the man
I was then seeing, and he kept a supply of his books
in my friend's room while he was off wandering. Every
once in a while, he would turn up in Delhi and visit
my friend (and his books).

 Jeffrey Miller became Surya Das about this time. Another pal of mine from

 drugs, the sex, the confusion.

 In India he studied with several famous teachers and when he gets back to
 America, Allen Ginsberg, Alan Watts (who was apparently a notorious drunk!)
 and Ram Dass, among others are constantly floating in and out of his life.
 It is also an interesting to see how he dealt with his unwanted fame...

  So what was M.'s beef with Om.?
 Traditionally in India, women do not chant or meditate on the OM 
 syllable - it's usually reserved for renunciates. The OM syllable is not 
 really a bija mantra, except by courtesy only, as it were, according to 
 Swami Ageananda Bharati. MMY only recommends householder bija mantras 
 for meditation. In TM you only get one single bija mantra - the mantra 
 of your istadevata. For example, OM isn't included in the maha-mantra of 
 the Gaudiya Vaishnava tradition founded by Bhaktisiddhanta Sarasvati.
 
 And, hardly anybody on the planet meditates on just the OM syllable 
 anyway - that's something a dilettante would do after reading about it 
 in a popular book, rather than a serious seeker studying under a 
 qualified teacher. OM is really just a place holder symbol for the 
 actual bija mantra given at initiation. OM is more like a salutation 
 such as Hail!used at the beginning of a prayer or mystic chant, like 
 in the Vedas.

Now you've done it, Richard. Now they're going to have to either kill
you or mindwipe you. :-)

I, for one, feel nothing but gratitude to the US Air Force. They paid my
father's salary, and thus for his family and our needs. They transferred
him to Morocco for two years, coincidentally two of the most formative
years of my life (ages 14-16). They got me *out* of the United States,
and able to see and feel what life was like in other places. And in the
end my inside knowledge of what kind of cannon fodder the military was
looking for kept me *out* of the military when I applied that knowledge
in reverse at my draft physical. :-)

I think I've mentioned before that I recebtly stumbled upon a group of
people who all went to my high school *in Morocco*, during the years
that I went there. It's just a trip. I haven't seen any of these people
in over 50 years. Some of them -- raised military brats -- went into the
military themselves. Others like myself went...uh...other directions.
But we all still get along, and truth be told we're more alike than we
are different.

While I went to Haight-Ashbury and become a peace-activist hippie
protesting in the streets, my best friend from that period went into the
service, spent time in rice paddies, and ended up being a career *spook*
fercrissakes. He was a spy on the frontlines of the Cold War for much of
his life.

We get along now exactly the way we did then. Go figure.

Since we've gotten back in touch we've had no political, cultural, or
moral disagreements, and neither of us seems to be terribly jealous of
the other's life. Except that he still rides a Harley. I admit being a
little jealous of that. :-)

So if we're all subjects in a clandestine military psyops experiment, I
say Good job! to the experimenters. You helped to give me a remarkably
fine life.

Elvis Presley - Are You Lonesome Tonight?
http://youtu.be/_cS5aCozhcA

The first time I heard Elvis was in 1953 in Abilene, Texas when I was about
four years old. My mother took me to the Paramount theater and let me sit
up front with her - she was about eighteen at the time. Later, when I was
fifteen I started buying his records including this one I bought in 1960.
Me and my first girlfriend used to listen to these Elvis songs all the time
after school. At one time, I owned about a dozen Elvis albums on vinyl,
since all sold. Now, I have a 2-CD set - The Essential Elvis Presley, RCA
B000KX0HVY.

This song, one of my favorites, is a very romantic song - a real
tear-jerker!

Are you lonesome tonight,
do you miss me tonight?
Are you sorry we drifted apart?
Does your memory stray to a brighter sunny day
When I kissed you and called you sweetheart?
Do the chairs in your parlor seem empty and bare?
Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?
Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

I wonder if you're lonesome tonight
You know someone said that the world's a stage
And each must play a part.
Fate had me playing in love you as my sweet heart.
Act one was when we met, I loved you at first glance
You read your line so cleverly and never missed a cue
Then came act two, you seemed to change and you acted strange
And why I'll never know.

Honey, you lied when you said you loved me
And I had no cause to doubt you.
But I'd rather go on hearing your lies
Than go on living without you.
Now the stage is bare and I'm standing there
With emptiness all around
And if you won't come back to me
Then make them bring the curtain down.

Is your heart filled with pain, shall I come back again?
Tell me dear, are you lonesome tonight?

  Very romantic dancing song!

 Speaking of romantic songs, here's one that has a cool story behind it.
 Back when I used to live in L.A., there was a bar out in North Malibu that
 I used to go to often to listen to a band called Billy and the Beaters.
 They were without question the most FUN band in L.A. to see and dance to, a
 modern version of the old Ray Charles band, with a horn section and great
 players. And Billy himself was just the best -- great guy, great voice,
 great songwriter, and fun.

 Anyway, he and his band were known around L.A., but their only album was
 long out of print and they were just gettin' by on club dates, and then a
 TV producer caught their act, loved it, and decided that one of Billy's
 songs would be perfect as the soundtrack behind key romantic moments
 between Michael J. Fox and Tracy Pollan on the TV show Family Ties.

 The song, and the album it was on, had been out of print for several

 much that Rhino Records acquired the rights and released a Best of Billy

 on the national charts and stayed there for 15 weeks.

The sacred center of the universe of Arabia is termed 'Omphali' by 
Arabs, from the prakrit mantra 'Om' and 'phal', meaning the 'Omphalos' 
of the Great Goddess.


Omphalo, the female 'generative' organ, i.e., the vulva of Mother 
Nature, the direct counterpart to the phallus of the Great Sky God, 
Omphalus, that is, the Phalus, maha Linga, the upright generative organ 
of man. Thus the Axis Mundi and Mother Goddess as the sacred ridge pole 
set into a splayed base of the physical universe, divine, worthy of 
worship, a black stone from heaven, a sign of connection to the Most

[FairfieldLife] Best Christmas Carol

2013-12-24 Thread authfriend
For the last (and best) 15 minutes of the magnificent British film of Dickens's 
Christmas Carol starring Alastair Sim (1951), start the video at about 1 hour, 
11 minutes: from the last moments of Scrooge's nightmare, in which the Ghost of 
Christmas Yet to Come shows Scrooge his own grave, to the transformed, redeemed 
Scrooge, philanthropist and second father to Tiny Tim.
 

 The scene Christmas morning in which he scares his housekeeper (the brilliant 
Kathleen Harrison) half to death with his ecstatic antics at the realization 
that he has another chance at life is one of the most joyous and thrilling in 
film, IMHO.
 

 Then watch for the brief, wordless scene at about 1:20 between Scrooge and his 
nephew's maid as he screws up his courage to join the ongoing Christmas party 
and end the estrangement with his family. Check out the looks he and the maid 
exchange just before he opens the door. Only the Brits can handle that level of 
subtlety and delicacy. One of my very most favorite movie moments.
 

 Of course the entire film is very much worth watching. Bhairitu should 
especially enjoy the earlier part, in which capitalism is demonized. ;-) But 
for uplift, the last quarter-hour just can't be beat.

compile the lyrics and put them into a book to give the family.  When we 
were singing The 12 Days of Christmas she and my nephew suddenly burst 
out laughing.  When I asked them why she said she had left out the 6th 
day of Christmas.

My brow furled a bit and I said, how did that happen?  I sent you a 
link to a web site with almost all the lyrics to Christmas songs? All 
you had to do was cut and paste.

She replied, I did but I typed them in again because I wanted to change 
the font.

 As women, many of us are the heart of holiday preparations, making sure 
everyone is fed, comfortable and entertained. We give, give, give, often to the 
point of exhaustion. 
 Yet, could our silence also be a gift? Not that we stop speaking or giving 
orders (although that may be a gift to some). Rather, what about taking time 
for inner silence through meditation or yoga? Such practices are emerging as 
essential tools for balance and sanity, especially during the hectic holiday 
season.
 Giving depends on the fullness of our inner being. Without presence of mind 
and emotional availability, we can't give much to anyone. Taking time for 
meditation -- to access our deeper, inner self -- can be the most precious of 
gifts.
 Transcendence empowers us
 When speaking with women professionals, moms, students -- women of all ages -- 
at Transcendental Meditation gatherings, I hear reports of how their 
twice-daily meditation allows them to feel less overwhelmed, less consumed by 
out-of-town guests coming to visit, and able to transcend much of the drama 
surrounding the holidays.
 Meditation can be a tool to transcend, to get beyond the to-do list, to 
refresh the mind and emotions by accessing the wellsprings of our energy and 
creativity deep within. A few minutes of effective meditation can balance many 
hours of demanding activity. 
 Scientific studies on the TM technique have shown that within minutes, deep 
transcendence can calm the sympathetic nervous system1, reduce cortisol 
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9226731, lower blood pressure 
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18311126, give your heart a rest 
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11595248, dissolve emotional tension and 
stress http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3216051/.2 
 After meditation we have more happiness, clarity and patience. We have more to 
give.
 Consciousness: an underlying field of silence
 Could it be that when we withdraw from the commotion and find a quiet place to 
meditate, we're not just escaping? Whether people notice or not, when you 
meditate, you're giving out a silent strength. The heightened brain wave 
coherence3 that neuroscientists associate with TM practice is not confined to 
the meditator's brain, just as the imperceptible aura of harmony that radiates 
from the meditative state is not confined to the meditator's inner world. The 
transcending process spreads ripples of harmony and coherence through the 
collective consciousness of our family, community and world. Numerous 
peer-reviewed scientific studies have measured this effect, showing that large 
groups of people practicing the TM technique together leads to a drop in crime, 
violence and terrorism 
http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/abs/10.1300/J076v36n01_13#.UrCI0aWjFG4.4
 How is that possible? Pioneering quantum physicists, such as John Hagelin, 
tell us that underlying all matter -- beneath all the diverse happenings of our 
household, workplace and community -- is a silent field of energy, intelligence 
and order http://www.mum.edu/pdf_msvs/v01/hagelin.pdf -- a field that is one 
with the deepest, most silent level of our own consciousness. Diving into that 
least excited field through meditation enlivens harmony in the atmosphere, 
touches those we love, spreads to our pets and neighbors, to folks near and 
far, and helps diffuse chaos, conflict and negativity. Taking time to meditate 
is a gift that nourishes our home and family from that most basic level of life 
-- the powerful but unseen unified field -- allowing everything to flow along 
more smoothly and sweetly. 
 Dynamic silence
 Awakened silence is not a dead, dull, disinterested state of mind, it's a 
dynamic field of pure potentiality. It gives us the sensitivity we need to be 
understanding and

A non-musical act my 1960's rock band opened for was Timothy Leary.  
He rushed on stage before we had a chance to get off so we just sat on 
stage listening to him. Funny thing, he never mentioned LSD once and 
just talked about enlightenment and what techniques people used 
throughout history to open the door of perception.

Back in the sixties Timothy Leary and Ralph Metzner did a road show in which 
they included readings from their Psychedelic Experience (a dubious co-opt of 
the Tibetan Book of the Dead). The event was filmed but only the soundtrack is 
now available (an amusing period piece). 
 I'd love to see the movie but LSD was made illegal just a month after the film 
was finished and so the distributors lost their nerve and it was never released 
to the public. 
 I met Ralph Metzner on a recent visit to London and asked him if the film 
footage had been destroyed. He said it's still around but isn't worth releasing 
now as a full feature but he added that there are plans to release a 
documentary about the tour which would include footage from that original 
movie. Could be a gas!

Re So if we're all subjects in a clandestine military psyops experiment, I say 
Good job! to the experimenters. You helped to give me a remarkably fine

 Well, we've not heard from Barry for a few hours now. I had assumed he was 
using a Tor Browser when he posted to FFL like the rest of us. Looks like he 
dropped his guard. He's probably had the full Bourne treatment by now - the 
agent crashing though the glass door of his Paris apartment. Unless Barry has 
the martial skills of Matt Damon or a glamorous sidekick like Franka Potente 
he's toast.
 

 Pity. He sounded like a nice guy.
