A New Years Message

The Holidays bring in new energy and the promise of a future life. In the darkest times the divine spark of light fires our imaginations and gives us the inspiration to go on. Small wonder we make resolutions for new beginnings at this time of year. At the same time we try to be near loved ones and family to share support and thanksgiving.

It's hard to believe Anarchist World is only three months old. It's also hard to believe some of the changes that have occured and that are in the works. What started out as a place for like minded people has become much more than that. The community portion of Anarchist World is still in its infancy. People are still trying to find out if they are comfortable here or not. This coming year will prove very interesting in terms of how the community portion grows.

In the meantime it is becoming a clearing house where I am posting a variety of posts on a variety of subjects and the new reader might well wonder just who I am. In the truest sense my words must speak for themselves and people will be drawn to them or repelled by them according to their own natures and values.

In a larger sense this site is about personal empowerment and individual freedom. I am uniquely suited to share some of the things I have learned over the years.

I grew up on a farm in northern Minnesota in a family with strong religious values and a strong work ethic. At the age of eighteen I was drawn to the metaphysical and philosophical teachings of the Rosicrucian Order AMORC. For twenty two years I received weekly monographs and instruction until completing the 12th Degree studies. Although no longer affiliated with AMORC I remain a Rosicrucian elder and strongly influenced by the Rosicrucian teachings.

As a walking question mark I studied other branches of the self-help and self-empowerment community including self hypnosis, Neuro Linguistics Programming, Scientology, Neo-Tech and the philosophy of objectivism.

Real world training included an Associate of Science degree in Survival and Rescue Operations from the Community College of the Air Force and a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Regents University of New York State. I worked as an in-home family crisis counselor and as a children's mental health social worker. I've been in the trenches with familes and individuals in crisis. I've also had my own troubles to work my way through.

Through the years I've retained a love of metaphysics and hard science. I have tried to integrate them both in meaningful ways. Another of my loves has been Freemasonry, a close associate of Rosicrucianism. I was initiated into the York Rite but have also loved and studied the works of Albert Pike and other gifted Masons.

The study of history is not complete without understanding the roles of Masonry and Rosicrucianism. For most of my life that has been my passion.

Now in mid life I've thrown most of my books away and rely instead upon my own internal authority and insights. I draw from personal experience and interpret old material in new ways. The knowledge I have to share comes from many places and is a curious mixture. Still, the knowledge is a universal knowledge that is available to anyone willing to listen to their own inner authority and follow their own inner path.

Anyone can be an Anarchist Knight!

The Just Right Gift

I tried going shopping for Annie this week and walked around the mall in frustration. Each year Annie gives me a list of things she would like for Christmas and each year what she really values is that surprise gift that is just right.

I was looking for that just right gift and nothing was working. It was my first real chance to walk around and see what was selling these days. Lots of gizmos but not many things that come from the heart.

Not even the book store offered any solutions. I got a couple small stocking stuffers there and hoped she hadn't read the latest Dean Koontz novel. Sighing in frustration I went home and turned the stereo on.

Annie wasn't home and I had the entire house to myself. I slipped into that zone where I go when I'm deeply thinking about something as I tackled the problem of the just right gift. Gradually I felt something giving way in my mind and it came to me that Annie needed new clothes. The problem with that was I can't shop for her clothes. She wouldn't like anything I bought and it would probably not fit right.

I came to realize that I needed to take her on a shopping trip so she could pick out her own things and I would buy them. The time together would be nice too. I was working some overtime and had about $100 extra in my paycheck. My overtime money belongs to me. The rest goes into the budget. I would use that $100 for Annie's shopping spree.

The nice thing about it was that Annie is constantly giving to others and doesn't do much for herself. She has a big heart and will go without so her son or daughter can have something, not to mention what she does for me. It was time she got something back. Christmas is starting to be special at my house this year.

Merry Christmas!

Seems like I am finally getting into the Christmas spirit. I've got my wife Annie to thank for that. Plus I've got most of my shopping done and that helps too.

I'm feeling better about my internet activities as well. For some reason this past two months has been loaded with adversarial dreaming. For some reason I've better encountering lots of opposition in my dreams, almost every night. My dreams have also been more vivid than I am used to. They have included the ability to read within the dream and feel different textures.

Most of this seems centered around Anarchist World and my blogs. Today is the first day in quite a while that things seem quiet and stable. I don't like rough roads and fights in my dreams. Dreams mean a lot to me. They are a true reflection of an inner reality that is just as real as our physical one.

This means that the astral is going through some tough times or at least I am since dreams are astral events that reflect inner realities. We should be on the down hill slide though now that the full moon is over. Full moons are always intense and this past full moon was the last before the winter solstice.

Each conflict zaps personal energy and at this time of year you don't want to be running out! That's probably why it has been so hard for me to get into the mood this year. Every time I turn around I feel like I've been zapped and depleted of energy. It makes me so grateful for my CPAP machine that helps me sleep nights. I can be totally zapped and after a full nights rest wake in the morning fully charged and ready to go. The middle of this month is my one year anniversary for the CPAP machine.

It's been one entire year of good deep sleep! I never knew how good it really was.
