The Charm of Making

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

CHARM OF MAKING: - This is said to berepparttar most powerful of all charms and abilities inrepparttar 142223 occult realms by those who have named it, at least. The truth is that much like many practitioners who devise esoteric conceptsrepparttar 142224 designers and embellishers or refiners of this concept would like us to believe they are all powerful. It reminds me of something I read in Morning ofrepparttar 142225 Magicians whenrepparttar 142226 authors were meeting withrepparttar 142227 immortal Fulcanelli. They talked about Georges Gurdjieff and his apparent process of dance that incorporatesrepparttar 142228 Mudra/Mutra brain lobe integration and disciplines of breath and centeredness to keeprepparttar 142229 mind so busy that nothing but truth penetratesrepparttar 142230 consciousness after a while. A regimen of dance and flexibility with a consciousness ofrepparttar 142231 marvel of our earthly muscular superstructure was a part of it as well. Gurdjieff claims he learned these things in a secluded paradise inrepparttar 142232 mountain valleys of Tibet where people live to 300 years of age. Atrepparttar 142233 age of 87 (or so) Gurdjieff himself was in a confrontation with a car. He lost! Included in his injuries was a broken pelvis and no one thought he'd recover. He did! Then he died a year or so afterwards. Atrepparttar 142234 time Pauwels and Bergier were talking with Fulcanelli they asked him what he thought of Gurdjieff and his fame. Fulcanelli remarked something torepparttar 142235 effect that Georges was a very good man and then said. 'If he knows so much why does he teach and not just create?'

This is what those whose Grimoires are full of decrees would like us to think they can do. Having met them and lived with them, I am not convinced. However, it would seem some truly adept people can (on occasion) make manifest certain realities of a miraculous sort. When someone heals withrepparttar 142236 laying on of hands, there is no charm of making ritual, but that does not mean they haven't acclimated and trained themselves through some similar process or haven't been given such a talent innately. We can't say for sure that ritual isn't part of miracles but we can say there is no absolute necessity of good being associated with said miracles. Inrepparttar 142237 final analysis I am inclined to disregardrepparttar 142238 psychopompous nature of power seekers and proselytes who play with things they use and abuse for personal gain.

Whenrepparttar 142239 acts are forrepparttar 142240 good of all and brotherhood they can more frequently be seen as coherent inputs fromrepparttar 142241 natural forces. Asrepparttar 142242 Law ofrepparttar 142243 Magi states - 'Right Thought = Right Action'. Here is a little miracle that I know is possible yet most would say is pure hogwash and fantasy ofrepparttar 142244 'savage' mind that can't be trusted because they are often drunk and illiterate. Would you imagine yourself able to enjoy drinking if your people had been treatedrepparttar 142245 way they have been? Who defines what value it is to write whenrepparttar 142246 person can't 'communicate' with their soul? "AMONG THE INDIANS

In 1950, Jean was Dance Artist in Residence forrepparttar 142247 University of Colorado Arts Festival, sorepparttar 142248 Campbells returned again forrepparttar 142249 summer intensive. This time they would drive out from New York, so that afterward they could travel to New Mexico forrepparttar 142250 magnificent Gallup Indian Festival. Also 1950 would berepparttar 142251 first summer that Jean brought a dance troupe torepparttar 142252 Colorado summer program; bringingrepparttar 142253 car would allow them to transport some ofrepparttar 142254 company to Denver.

It's Not Your Fault!

Written by Robert Bruce Baird

IT’S NOT YOUR FAULT! Saying goodbye is easy forrepparttar traveler. I am a person who traveled so much that I had no roots except ‘within’ and I learned to be connected to ‘What IS’.

Inrepparttar 142113 movie Good Will Hunting there are many great insights aboutrepparttar 142114 rat race and Cycle of Violence. I never was beaten but I had a horror show caused byrepparttar 142115 social system due to a schizophrenic mother. But I empathized withrepparttar 142116 Psychologist played by Robin Williams because I have always been there to counsel those in need or trouble. I had studied just like Will Hunting a lot ofrepparttar 142117 books on philosophy and psychology. Before I was ten I dare say I had read more thanrepparttar 142118 average Doctor of Psychology.

It was good to see bothrepparttar 142119 main characters get on with their life and dorepparttar 142120 right thing. The ‘Right Thing’ is what I have been doing ever since I decided to fulfill my purpose. That meant I had to facerepparttar 142121 music andrepparttar 142122 rat race or bureaucracy again. You could say I am determined to be ‘historical’ like Gertrude Stein – or die trying. But I don’t have a salon in Paris. I live in a group home forrepparttar 142123 flotsam of society called insane. I write my books in hopes that someone some day will decide to join me in a quest beyond fighting City Hall. Just like Gertrude’s unwillingness to seerepparttar 142124 politics that lead to war I am moved to see what really causes these behaviors.

Ego and fear are so hard for people to get past. I have been perceived as a ‘threat’ to society or an agent of change people choose to avoid, for a couple of decades. Inrepparttar 142125 last few years I have takenrepparttar 142126 message of soul and connectiveness torepparttar 142127 World Wide Web communities. I am now retiring from such ego and flaming wars. Who can say what lies ahead? I don’t really care if anyone actually learnsrepparttar 142128 data I dump and my writing is only going to reach a few people while I am alive. Life on earth may not exist past that if our leaders choose to continuerepparttar 142129 current direction or leave to colonize space withrepparttar 142130 ‘chosen ones’.
