Opening Words - Updates and Corrections    (view on a separate page)
Author: Alexander Aldarow    (all articles by this author)

First of all, allow me to apologize for the long delay since the last message. My exams (both academical and spiritual ones) were/are time-demanding; add to that a few major changes within Project X, which will be mentioned further.

A correction: in the Asoka Selvarajah's article "Lessons From The Animals", published in issue # 75, the name of the authoress of the book "The Voice Of The Infinite In The Small" is Joanne Elizabeth Lauck, not "Johnny Elizabeth Lack" as stated. Our apologies.

SpiritWeb.org has terminated its newsletters service. From now and on, Project X Newsletter is mailed only through Yahoo Groups services. Unfortunately, that means that we've lost approximately 2/3 of our subscribers. I would also like to thank all the readers from SpiritWeb that decided to remain on this mailing list, despite this minor change of service.

Project X chat is closed, since it has ceased being Project X's open chat and became a few people's closed private club. I'd like to apologize to all those who wanted to join the live conversation and were offended or thrown off by the "clubbers". I tried to deal with their immaturity, but it was both too late, and the whole experience was reminiscent of banging my head against a brick wall :-) I guess it is my lesson to accept that I can't make all the people better, and that I can't be friends with everybody. It is their own task to grow, eventually.

The URL for our message board has changed. To participate in Free Spirits board discussion, where you can talk about the newsletter articles or anything else, spiritual, philosophical, paranormal or daily, go to http://freespirits.chosenones.net . This board provides the users with much more options than the old forum: members can exchange personal messages, stylize their messages, have a person picture (an avatar) under their registered nicknames, edit and even delete their own messages, and so much more. See this as an invitation :-)


Who Is The Higher Self?    (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Author: Asoka Selvarajah    (all articles by this author)

Throughout the ages, Ancient Wisdom has taught the existence of something that transcends everything we know, and yet is an integral part of our very being. It has been referred to with many titles: Guardian Angel, Inner Genius, Higher Self.

If our own brain is beyond our understanding, how much more mysterious and incredible is this strange being we call the "Higher Self". What can it be? What "self" can possibly be higher than the one you are already familiar with? If this "self" is truly higher than what we are normally aware of, how can it be truly called "self"?

Let us attempt a definition:

"The Higher Self is that part of you that connects you directly to the spiritual realms. It is eternal, infinitely wise and transcends your everyday consciousness. It is in touch with the Divine because it is part of it. Attaining knowledge of the Higher Self, and its depths of inner wisdom, is the goal of the Spiritual Quest in all its many guises throughout the world, and throughout history."

Thus, you are not simply the total of your conscious and subconscious. There is a part of you that transcends both. It exceeds anything you know with your present awareness. It is beyond anything you can possibly know through normal rational thought. You are connected to the Divine, and this is where it manifests.

To most people, this concept may seem highly unlikely, or even absurd. However, a growing body of scientific evidence also suggests that there IS a source of superior intelligence within all of us. There is an inner capacity that most us are unaware of, and are largely unable to access.

In the Indian philosophy of Samkhya, the term for this higher consciousness, which pervades the entire universe, is Purusa. It is believed to be free of the limitations of space and time, and is also uncaused by anything external to itself. It is free of both pleasure and pain. It is above thought.

Throughout this article, we use the term "Higher Self". However, you can also take this to include the "Inner Genius" too. There is no real distinction between what might considered "spiritual" intelligence, and more general super-normal functioning; such as the ability to read and learn at superhuman speeds or the ability to perform mathematical calculations at lightening speed. In truth, such extraordinary abilities are only part of a vast continuum that lies concealed within us. It covers a vast span - all the way from the spiritual height to incredible levels of performance at more earthly levels.

Through following the principles described in this book (see contact information below) for developing contact with the Higher Self, you will also make it possible to create a whole range of dramatic changes in your everyday life. What many consider impossible is easy for those who have made contact with the Source of All.

Why Access The Higher Self At All?

Some people may be alarmed at the whole idea of accessing a "Higher Self". After all, doesn't that imply losing control and being invaded from something from the outside? Wouldn't you lose the very essence of who you are?

These ideas arise from a misunderstanding about (a) who "you" are and (b) who the Higher Self is. In truth, the Higher Self IS you - all that you are meant to be. The only reason we even talk about it as if it were an entity from elsewhere is because we have been trained from birth not to fully express the magnificent divinity within us and be all that we are fully capable of being. That is what the Higher Self really is; the best you that you are capable of being.

If you were manifesting your very best right now, do you think your brain capacity would be lying 99% dormant? Of course not.

The problem we all face is that we identify ourselves with the small "I". This is the ego consciousness that we have gradually developed throughout our life. However, this is not really all that you are. Your ego, your conscious mind, is only a small part of your total being. It is shaped by childhood, by what you were told as you were growing up, by the knocks and bruises of life, as well as the pleasures and joys. In part, it is formed from the life experiences that you have had up to this point. However, it is also partly created from your subconscious, and your connection to the Collective Unconscious.

Thus, your personality consciousness is subject to constant change. It is not an absolute. It alters through life experiences, psychiatric therapy, or a range of other influences.

However, despite the shifting circumstances of existence, most people recognize, at least fleetingly, the existence of a changeless eternal part of their nature. In these moments, they have made contact with their essential eternal being; who they really are.

So really, the Higher Self is not some sort of invading being. Rather, it is more truly you than you ever have been allowed to be. It lets more of those moments of true recognition into your life. Eventually, you are enabled to live your entire life from a point of full awareness of your changeless divinity.

Star Child Breaking News & Predictions    (view on a separate page) (more articles about aliens)

Breaking News From Homie

"The Aliens Won The War For Us."

     When I got home this morning, my 5 year old star child neighbor (Homie) came racing up to me on his bike and said that he had some things he was suppose to tell me about. He said that the information had been given to him by the good aliens.
     In order to make his information as clear as possible, he asked to use my globe as a reference point. He showed me the areas of the "city" (earth) that were safe and those that were not.

NOT SAFE:
Pacific NW (Cascade Mountain range)
Southern CA. Baja CA, Mexico
New Madrid region
(SE Missouri / So. Illinois Western Kentucky - and Arkansas in particular)
Missouri / Oklahoma / Arkansas convergence
New York City, Up-state New York
Hawaii
Central Mexico, Guatemala
Canadian polar region
Philippines, Indonesia
SE China, Hong Kong, Taiwan
Japan
Baltic Sea region
Turkey, Iran, Iraq
(Gratefully, India / Pakistan were NOT on the list.)

SAFE:
Michigan, N Ohio, N Indiana
N Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota
N + S Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska
Central Canada
Scotland
North Africa
Australia

     Homie didn't elaborate as to exactly what made each area "not safe", but it doesn't take a geologist or geo-political expert to discern the most likely scenarios for possible reasons for caution in those locales.

     He said that the good (green) aliens had "won the war for us" against the "bee-head" aliens who live underground, and that our city (earth) could now be safe for us to live in again. However, Homie also stated that there were "bad people" who were helping the bad aliens and that they would still be trying to take over the world for themselves.
     I asked him if there is something big coming toward the Earth (Planet X). He reflected for a moment  - appearing to be receiving a transmitted response to my question - and said, "No, that's just a joke;" in the same breath he continued, "God lives in space with the good aliens, and He's coming to take us up into space ships so we will stay safe. THAT'S what they're seeing."

     Comments????

Human Soul and its Evolutionary State    (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Author: Brenda May Grubb    (all articles by this author)

At present, the human soul's evolutionary state of existence is likened to a projected stream of counterbalancing energy. The Soul en-masse has to now project itself forward through, out of the earth's influence and onward into the next dimension, in order to prepare the way for the soul-state which hasn't quite advanced to the required state of evolution, so will need certain conditions to give it the necessary degree of confidence before it will accept the directions given.

===================================

Dearest children of the earthly existence. I am now working through this child to establish in your hearts a form of understanding which will hopefully see you through the next stage within your development toward returning to your Divine Heritage - your spiritual home. This can be accomplished when you have the required framework incorporated into your heart chakras. You will automatically recognize if this is activated within yourself, as I continue with this little message.

The idea is to steadily introduce you to a program of raising your consciousness. The ultimate goal in all of this, will be to enable you all to form within your consciousness a far greater existence for you than you presently know.

Carefully, we now place our feet forward. As we take our first step, we find ourselves on the outside of our existence, looking at ourselves.

We mentally take note of what we find, for now we see ourselves, maybe as others see us. But we are not at all worried as to what others think of us, no! We are only concerned with how we appear to us. There will undoubtedly be one or two things we would like to change. What can we do about this? I will now tell you.

Everything you will ever need will be found within yourself! Having established this fact, we now need to call upon our heart chakra to open. We will then ask our heart chakra to send a blanket of Love and Compassion to those aspects of us we would like to change.

Then we would call upon the Essence of Existence to transmute those aspects, allowing them to become a part of the Love and Compassion within our heart chakra.

======================

The world is a wonderful place - if we allow it to be so.

There is so very much we DON'T know, and we are still trying to prove to each other that which we DO know, that we have no time to sit still and ask to be given information on what is next on the agenda, so I have been asked to provide this information for your convenience.

There are, just now at this moment of our time in our existence, a whole new range of energies advancing into the earth's environment, and they are of necessity of a much finer vibration owing to our advancement from the third dimension, and on into the forth dimension, which is what we are even now progressing through.

However, we are not going to remain in the forth dimension for very long. It is merely a preparation for our entrance into the fifth dimension where we shall find ourselves working with even finer vibrations than those which are just now entering into our consciousness.

In order to maintain our status within the Wheel of Life, we are going to have to still the mind on the conscious level, and become accustomed to these finer vibrations, which are in effect allowing more and more Light into our cellular structures so we will be more suited for the fifth dimension.

The changes are coming, but not before we are ready to cope with them. Our friends within the World of Spirit, as we are accustomed to calling everything that is not of the world of the earth plane, do not wish for the total annihilation of Humanity, so they are going to prepare ALL for their particular role within this coming growth period for Mother Earth.

There are many aspects to Humanity, which are at this moment totally segmented from the point of view of the earth plane. However, from the point of view of those apart from the earth plane, this is just not the case, and as we come into the fifth dimension proper, then we shall truly see that we are NOT the fragmented societies we see ourselves to be, and we will become One Whole Body of Humanity working together fro the good of our Brothers and Sisters.

The more we can allow the Higher understandings of life to enter into our awareness, the more light we allow into our cellular structures, and so the easier it will become for those who are to follow in our wake regarding our evolvement. It will be far too late if we were to wait until we see the 'whites of their eyes' before thinking of these understandings, in other words we must begin now, to master the higher aspects within ourselves, at the same time subduing the lower, and coarser side of our nature, this is in preparation for its eventual extinction.'


My Reality Is Better Than Your Reality - Or Is It?    (view on a separate page) (more articles about guidance)
Author: Asoka Selvarajah    (all articles by this author)

What is reality? Each of us has our personal read on it. Yet, nobody knows for certain. Each of us is locked into our own paradigm, and can only see things that way. The same world in which we all live, is actually totally different, depending upon who is viewing it. It is perhaps for this reason, more than any other, that our planet abounds with conflict.

As an example, take the different worldviews possessed by myself and my cat Hermes. Each of us lives in the same world. We see almost exactly the same things. However, our interpretations could not be more different. I watch the TV and watch politicians discussing the latest world crisis. My cat views the same pictures and sees something different. He probably does recognize the figures as people. Nevertheless, the noises they are making, and the things they are doing, have no importance to him. In fact, in his world, there is NO world crisis.

When we both look out of the window and see a cat, the significance we each infer is totally different again. The roles are now reversed. To me, it is a cat and nothing more. To Hermes, there is a tremendous significance in its actions that I cannot fathom. There are levels of meaning present that I am blind to. He watches intently and his body becomes tense. In my world, there is nothing much going on, but in his there is.

People can be like this too. A person born a Muslim, a Jew, a Christian or a Hindu experiences a totally different world to the others. Even in mundane secular affairs, the same applies. One person's fundamental assumptions often do not permit them to see things that are clearly present to another.

This point was very plain during my former career in Investment Banking. During this period, I functioned as a Technical Analyst: a market forecaster who uses price charts of past market action to predict the future market direction.

Clearly, I had spent many years involved deeply in this subject, and had developed an expertise for it. Moreover, many unbiased people found that my work was effective. However, throughout my career, I always found myself in conflict with the economists. These people function as the "establishment" within the banking industry, and like to think of themselves as the intelligentsia. In their world, the markets are random, and have been proven so by "infallible" mathematical procedures decades ago. The argument is closed. Consequently, anything I was doing that assumed price relationships between one day and the next was utter nonsense; to be completely frowned at. The fact I was doing it marked me as a person of clearly inferior intelligence, and not to be taken seriously.

In one instance, I even tried to demonstrate some of my methods to one self-pronounced Finance professor. Amazingly, he literally could not see what I was showing him on screen. To me, a bond or stock price chart is a meaningful connected entity, whose past relates to its future. There is a continuity present between the dots. To him, all he saw was a series of daily points, with no connection whatsoever. Hence, he could not comprehend what I was trying to explain. It was not a matter of intelligence. Rather, our brains were seeing totally different things when we looked at the same data.

As a result of different presuppositions to mine, he lived in a totally different world. Not only did he not believe in the possibility of what I was doing, in HIS world, it literally IS impossible!

Especially in the matter of human affairs, reality is a relative matter; relative to the individual mind viewing it. You would do well to always remember this whenever you are in conflict with another, or when you see the terrible conflicts taking place in the world. For example, what is a definition of sanity? If there is one, it is determined by the habitual behavior of the majority of the population. Certainly, the insane do not regard themselves as such. The very definition of sanity depends upon the prevailing culture. The Biblical prophets, with their ranting visions of doom, might be locked in an asylum today. Yet, in their time, their words were preserved and regarded as holy scripture.

Even good or evil cannot be absolutely defined. It is necessary to make final reference to a deity who is beyond question; in truth, a sort of philosophical "cop-out". Of course, the only question that then remains is whether that deity exists at all! That question, and the specific nature of the deity and its pronouncements, is itself a source of massive world conflict; another source of "reality relativity".

At present, the political powers of the West would like to picture the present world conflict as a battle between Good and Evil; themselves being "good" of course. Only the extremely naive would ever take such claims seriously. Human motivation is far too complex to ever be reconciled into such simplistic dualistic formulas as Good and Evil. In every conflict that ever existed, the "evil" enemy also considered themselves to be the force of Good. Each side is always trapped in its own paradigm, its own "rightness", and is thereby prevented from achieving a true understanding. Each is bent upon the destruction of the other. This is proof, if any were needed, that whilst our toys have become ever more sophisticated, our minds clearly have not.

The innate Buddha/Christ Consciousness that underlies our being perceives all things as they really are. That is why esoteric teachings constantly exhort us to get in touch with the only reality there is: the Reality within. However, the interaction between our senses and our intellect, create delusive layers that obscure that reality. They are delusive because they have not developed under the guidance of higher consciousness. Rather, these layers - which we call out life experience - have developed largely without discrimination as a result of cultural and environmental influences.

The human brain is remarkably efficient at extrapolating meaning from a very small amount of data input. Doubtless, this was useful at a time when detecting even the slightest movement in the long grass could mean the difference between life and death. However, in the present day, this ability leads us to rapidly draw and store conclusions that are often erroneous. The intellect continually creates mental shortcuts, without truly checking out all the facts available. Even when we do, we must inevitably filter them through the framework of our previous mental constructions and prejudices. In that sense, we are all slaves to our own intellects and the forces that shaped them. We are locked into a box of our own creation. That is why esoteric teachings emphasize that Enlightenment is a process of going beyond the intellect and contacting the higher consciousness once more.

One key to improving relations, both on a personal and international level, may be to go beyond mere mutual understanding. We need to realize that we cannot totally understand the other person's world, because we have never truly experienced it. In realizing this, and in nevertheless being willing to celebrate the differences without necessarily understanding them, we can a long way to eliminating the blocks to human progress that seem so impassable.

The best way to approach our personal view of reality is to consider it a useful model, and nothing more. Let us not take ourselves too seriously, or get too attached to what we regard as "facts". When we approach another being, we are approaching a wholly different world. It may bear a resemblance to our own, depending upon the extent of common education and cultural heritage we share (or lack) in common. However, it can never ever be completely the same.

"Reality" does not lend itself to revelation through intellect. After all, many of the great conflicts of history have been battles between world views. So let us be less willing to believe all the hype and simplifications that we are continually presented with, and which appeal to our intellect's taste for simplified rules to believe. Rather, let us seek to be ever less judgmental and more willing to work upon revealing the ultimate Reality; that which is within.
