The shift that we all experienced to a greater or lesser degree occurred at the subconscious level. Many of us woke up to a sense of purpose, although most were unsure as to which direction to take. In Stage Intuition we access an aspect of the subconscious, which presents itself as inner teaching or intuition. One of the founders of psychology, Carl Gustav Jung introduced us to the fact that more goes on under the surface or subconscious than we can imagine. His work on Archetypes is invaluable, as we shall see later.
When we started the Know Thyself Initiative, we thought it would continue from stage to stage without any significant break, but as we know that has not happened. In fact, nothing about KTI has worked out the way Craig and I envisioned it. We came to understand that it concerned learning perspectives, especially timing. At the end of Stage Reason on the Winter Solstice of 2009, the content for Stage Cycles was not available. This was because certain events needed to occur, namely the neutralization of the Shadow of Deception in September 2010, and the Peace festival around 2011’s Autumnal Equinox. As this was just before September 26th, the date Dr. Carl Calleman had calculated to start the Mayan Shift it set the tone for the world. We saw the effect with the Global Peace event of 11:1:11, barely 2 weeks later in November 2011. On a personal note, this was the time the Bridge to Peace Project was formed and cemented our collaboration with Carl’s work.
Of course, neither Craig nor I had any idea of this in 2009 and just had to wait for things to unfold. Curiously, preparation for the Shadow’s neutralization started with an inspiration to write Part Two of Full Circle: The Mysteries Uncloaked, with the addition of Globe D added to the title. Again, like my writing for Stage Reason, I had very little control over how this article was written. To call it an article now seems ridiculous, because it resulted in a 777-page thesis tracking the influences of the Shadow of Deception and its counterpart, the Light of Truth through 2,000 years of history. I was finalizing the last section when the next step in preparation began. This time it entailed my energy vehicle, namely my body. The upshot is, as explained in the aforementioned thesis, we learned a great deal more about the purpose of the mission.
After posting all 11 sections of the thesis in Cycles, we knew it would be a little while before me posted anything else. However, we did not conceive it would be the only content in Cycles and necessitate the need to move onto Stage 3-Intuition. Moreover, we did not think KTI would essentially lie dormant for 3 years, but something else was needed, which was not available until now, our latest book, In Search of Peace: FOR THE CHILDREN Our Lives Entwined with Ego.
During the process of setting up the Know Thyself Initiative, we chose what material would be beneficial for each Stage. As we studied The Good News: An Alternate Theory in Stage Reason, we provided a free download version on our site. In Stage Cycles, as stated we made all 777 pages available. Initially, in the next Stage, Intuition we advocated using two well-known author’s books as aid in the material. The books we recommended were Eckhart Tolle’s books, particularly A NEW EARTH Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose and James Redfield’s inspirational The Celestine Prophecy series.
Energetically, KTI reflects the condition and development of the mass conscious. We started out in Stage Reason, which involved us using our Deductive Reasoning to re-examine our concepts of what we think we know. This reflected how people were beginning to re-think some things. As we related, there are two kinds of reason, inductive and deductive. Inductive Reasoning entails gathering all the information you can from outside of yourself- teachers, lessons, books, documentaries, and TV or film plots. Unfortunately, this can be tainted by biased or incorrect premises. From the ancient Mysteries perspective, the use of inductive reasoning has kept multiple conclusions in place as absolute truths that have been later proven wrong; such as, the earth must be flat because if it were not, we would fall off it. Deductive Reasoning on the other hand opens a person up to other possibilities. The investigator allows their mind to wonder, “what if?” “What if the Earth was round, and then how come we do not fall off, “What force makes us stay on the surface?” This of course led to the discovery of Gravity and the science of Physics, among other things.
In other words, we need Deductive Reasoning to break through to a higher level of understanding. Please understand I am not speaking of intelligence, or IQ. Deductive Reasoning will work for anyone who is curious enough to open his or her mind. We used this process throughout Stage Reason. Nonetheless, it was changing the way we think, because we learned how our minds and mental processes are far more complex than we thought. For Instance, in order to access the source of Deductive Reasoning, we had to use the mental processes that preceded it, Attention, Will or intellect from the self-conscious, also known as Logic. Then we needed our collective Memory held by our part of the great Cosmic Mind, our universal subconscious. Before we could hope to apply either inductive or deductive reasoning, we first had to engage our Creative Imagination from our personal sub-conscious. Once we applied these three aspects of our consciousness then we could re-examine The Good News using Deductive Reasoning.
In Stage Reason, we began to open ourselves up to the inner world, so that when we moved onto Stage Cycles, we could apply the same processes in examining the two forces of “good and evil”. They seemed to switch places on a regular basis over the past two millennia, with “evil” appearing to gain more dominance in the 20th Century. Once we have begun to question our accepted precepts, then we can move on. One of the things that surprised us was that the seconc Stage of KTI was not Intuition. It would have been the natural progression following on from Reason, as it is the next step in our spiritual development. The reason Stage Cycles came next was to reflect that the mass consciousness was coming to the end of a major cycle.
So many of the Earth’s population were aware of the end of an Age, most of us knew it as the 26,000 Mayan Cycle, which astrologically was the end of the Piscean Age. The concept of Cycles and what lay ahead was in the minds of a great number of people. Searching for answers, many looked to the past to guide them and found patterns in behavior and events. My thesis certainly opened my eyes to the ebb and flow of the forces. However, the main purpose for Stage Cycles other than hi-lighting the influence of the Shadow of Deception and its counterpart the Light of Truth through 2,000 years, was more especially to mark the demise of the former before the shift.
At the end of Stage Reason we could see the next stage’s temple, the Temple of Cycles, within the Temple of Reason. However, this was before the shift that began on October 26th 2011 and concluded December 21 2012. Now, enough of us have shifted to the point where we are ready to access the next level to our Deductive Reasoning, our Intuition. Although intuition is usually preceded by the word “women’s”, it is not restricted to only women. The term is a throwback to an ancient understanding that it was through the feminine or passive aspect of a man or woman that he or she accessed their intuition. What interests us the most here is that this level is the first level of our Spirit, or the Higher Self. The only problem is that when we access the Higher Self, we unwittingly also enhance the connection with the false self or pain-body. We can view the individual pain-body as the subconscious aspect of the false self, whereas the ego is the conscious part. Both are equally destructive to our spiritual development. Yet in many ways, the pain-body is worse than the ego, because it is more subtle. Therefore, in this Stage we have to learn how to identify the ego. To do this we have to change the way we think, or reverse our perspective; hence the delay in beginning this Stage. We were not ready.
Like everything in life, this is a case of timing. In spiritual evolution, any advance in our development is contingent on many factors. One of the most important is what kind-of energy and frequencies are we exposed to. At this particular time, the energies and frequencies we are exposed to are formidable. The Good News (no pun intended) is instead of being neutral, for the first time they are wholly positive. This is due to two factors. Primarily, because the Shadow of Deception was neutralized in 2010, but equally important is the end of the Piscean Age and start of the Aquarian Age. Therefore, we are in a unique situation where our personal choices and decisions can affect the whole world, as they never have before.
There is nothing to fear. On the contrary, it is something to celebrate. Today we have the opportunity to turn this world around for everyone. I am not speaking of domination. I am referring to an ability to tap into the collective Divine/Universal Plan, which we all seek. A key factor is shown by the temples at the end of Stage Cycles. Craig shows how we have changed our perspective and now the previous two temples are behind us. This is another reason why we wrote In Search of Peace: FOR THE CHILDREN Our Lives Entwined with Ego. There is zero personal monetary gain from the book and therefore it carries the intent of selflessness, which is of the same vibration as the Higher Self. The simple truth is in order to identify the ego and pain-body’s influence; we need to rise above them. Supporting Peace and giving to children sets the tone for your study of this stage.
Something that might help those unfamiliar with any of the terms used above is to review the first Stage, Reason on our site. In Section 2 we introduced the concept of an enemy within. We have selected the most relevant excerpts below:
“…children under 5…often have unique perspectives on life because during this period the child is using Deductive Reasoning. That is why Craig could “Reason” he would need to learn to speak again. If parents or guardians pay attention to what their children say, engaging them in conversation, they may be surprised at what they hear. At this time the child’s Spirit is at its strongest and the false self or ego at its weakest. Moreover, the soul of the child vaguely remembers its imperative for the incarnation, which as it grows becomes more and more fleeting. By the age of 7, unless the memories have been fostered by an adult, most children will have no concept of any pre-existence…
“After 7 years of age the individual child normally switches to using Inductive Reasoning by taking in information through the 5 senses. At this time the ego begins to exert control over the mind of the child. This is where an adult’s influence is critical as to whether the true or false self, emerges victorious. Today we are witnessing the result of that influence. We are not concerned with a discussion on parenting here, but the most efficacious way to help a child fulfill his or her Spiritual purpose.
“We must say that there is no absolute right or wrong way to raise a child. This is because each child is unique and has different needs. Some children will need a firm, but kind hand to keep them out of trouble; whereas other children will respond to reason and reward. Nonetheless, there are 2 absolute requirements that all children need to Spiritually evolve and that is Absolute Honesty and Consistency. As the child develops they are constantly using Inductive Reasoning through observation. They not only learn how to act and behave through observation, but also how to judge and form opinions. After 7 years of age children are learning which urge to follow; the metaphorical angel or devil. The angel or Spirit represents restraint, self-discipline, and responsibility; whereas the devil or ego represents self-indulgence, gratification, and impulsiveness. In view of this we can understand the struggle for control going on within a child. The easiest way to give an advantage to the devil/ego over the angel/Spirit is to create uncertainty.
“There is an old saying, “Spare the rod and spoil the child”. Generally this is thought to advocate the use of corporal punishment, as a rod is a term for a bunch of sticks used in beating. However, as you will discover old sayings and proverbs often have multiple meanings. In fact, there are several definitions for the word rod. Deductive Reasoning from within tells us that because there is more than 1 definition for rod, the saying “Spare the rod and spoil the child” must have more than one meaning. The Ancient sages often hid Secret Wisdom in seemingly regular everyday sayings, which means there is a good chance that 1 of the meanings for the saying is Spiritual; it is.
“The deeper or Spiritual meaning can be discovered in the definition of rod as a unit of the measurement through the Mystical Art of Symbolism. The length of a rod is the same as an ox-goad, which was used to drive oxen in plowing fields. A Symbol was given to each of the 22 Hebrew letters and the ox-goad was given to Lamed. The Mystical Art of the Archetypal images of the Tarot assigns Lamed to the trump or card 11 – Justice, which represents balance. In plowing, the ox-goad is used on an ox, which is the Symbol for the Hebrew letter Aleph, assigned to the trump card 0 – The Fool, which represents the preincarnate Spiritual Soul. Subsequently, Archetypally the message of the 2 symbols is that balance (ox-goad) is needed for the Spiritual Soul (ox) of an individual to progress. So using Deductive Reasoning we can decipher the Spiritual meaning behind the saying of, “Spare the rod and spoil the child.” A rod is a measurement or limit, and the Spiritual lesson is that children need limits or boundaries in order to overcome the ego and achieve balance.
“Apart from Absolute Honesty, we said that a child also needed Consistency. This means standing your ground as a parent. Remember the angel or Spirit represents restraint, self-discipline, and responsibility; the devil or ego represents, self-indulgence, gratification, and impulsiveness. There is a constant struggle for control going on within a child, which is why the child needs Consistency from the adults in his or her life. If you do not follow through with consequences for bad behavior, such as grounding or suspension of privileges, then the child’s ego goes to work on their consciousness creating doubt about your word. A young child does not need a friend as a parent. He or she needs you to create the boundaries and limits that they are incapable of creating.
“After 7 the child is looking for a role model and that role will be minutely scrutinized by the ego for any cracks. So it is absolutely imperative to maintain your “rod” or limit. Your child’s Spirit is depending on it. Furthermore, because of the scrutinizing of the Inductive Reasoning it is not enough to just tell a child how to behave; you will need to show them by your example. From a very young age, the ego of the child is learning to undermine a parent’s influence and that influence is crucial as it can help a child become their true self.”
“There is also another aspect of the ego that a young person deals with during the time between age 14 and 21. Eckhart Tolle refers to this aspect as the “pain body” and this is far more destructive to the Spiritual development of a young person than the ego. The “pain body” is not about physical pain but emotional, which in many cases is far worse than actual physical pain. Moreover, the “pain body” operates within the subconscious and has only one aim; to feed. It feeds on the painful emotions an individual experiences. However, it isn’t content to wait for life to naturally create emotional events; it works with the ego to provoke the situations. Young people between the ages of 14 and 21 are the most vulnerable to their “pain bodies” because of all the other factors involved; such as hormones.
“We constantly hear adults bemoaning the youth of today as being incorrigible. On the face of it they would appear to have a case, but from a Spiritual perspective young people of today have far more to deal with than earlier generations. Think back to when you were a child, did you ever hear of Global Warming and such dire predictions of the future, or were you absorbed in just having fun? Because of the media and internet young people are constantly bombarded with negative news. Unable to do anything about it they become angry and act out, which of course feeds the “pain body”. The consequence of their acting out again creates even more circumstances for the “pain body” to feed on, becoming a self-perpetuating loop.
If you have or know of a young person that is exhibiting anger, confusion, and or despair and want to help them, you may want to try remembering how you felt at that age and then multiply it a thousand fold. Most teenagers go through a phase of feeling unheard by adults, which makes them angry and rebellious. These emotions are often accompanied with a feeling of not belonging. Adults can be of immense help by just listening and reassuring them that they experienced similar overwhelming emotions when they were teenagers and that these feelings will eventually subside.
“From a Spiritual or consciousness perspective, adolescents and teenager’s egos and “pain bodies” will attempt to direct them into acting out the anger. This will not necessarily be achieved physically, but possibly through indulging in seemingly harmless escapism; such as violent video games. In many ways, this is Spiritually more harmful because it involves the senses of sight and sound. These 2 senses as will be discussed later are how a human being creates. So indulging in violent video games actually “creates” the environment to perpetuate the situation.
“Before we leave this age group, there is one other thing we wish to address. We said earlier that Ancient Wisdom maintained that the age of Spiritual Decision wasn’t reached until 21. We find it interesting that young people under the age of 21 are not able to drink alcohol, yet are permitted to purchase a gun and fight in the armed forces. Moreover, when a young person commits a crime society often punishes them as an adult, locking them up with adults. Ancient Wisdom held that anyone under 21 was not held fully responsible for their actions and or decisions. That did not mean that bad behavior was excused; just not judged the same way as adult behavior.
(Note: We must emphasize that this is not a social commentary on the condition of the youth of today, or the legal system, but information on the consciousness development from a Spiritual perspective. You must always keep in mind that the goal of the Initiative is to change the way you think and in order to do that you first have to determine how you think.)
“So by the age of 21 all aspects of the human consciousness have developed and the individual is considered an adult. Until now in the Fullness of Time, between the age of 21 and 38 everyone was left to make the most of life for good or bad. Individuals spent this period of time learning by experience what works and what doesn’t. During these 17 years, beliefs and opinions of life are questioned and changed or reinforced. An individual also sharpens his or her intellect developing the will or self-consciousness. This in turn develops the ego since it is an integral part of the self-consciousness. Unfortunately this is also the time the “pain body” becomes the strongest, because it has the benefit of actual memories of experiences, which it can slant or skew to elicit the strongest emotional reaction.
“The above was the state of affairs until the Fullness of Time, which began December 21st 2004. Now although natural development is still taking place, anyone over the age of Spiritual Decision or 21, is capable of changing the way they think. This is because what was only available to individuals after the age of 38 is now available to anyone over 21.
To explain: there are 3 major astrological alignments that happen at special times in an individual’s life. The first is the Saturn return, which occurs when Saturn returns to the position it was in when you were born. This happens when a person reaches the age of 29. The second is the Uranus opposition that is: Uranus is in the exact opposite position to where it was when you were born. This event happens between the ages of 38 and 44. The final one occurs around the age of 50, when the planetoid Chiron returns to the position it was in at your birth. The Saturn Return traditionally meant a sometimes drastic change in your life, but it is what happens at the Uranus Opposition that is most relevant now. Barbara Hand Clow states in her book Chiron: Transforming Bridge between the Inner and Outer Planets that until a person reaches this point (the Uranus opposition) he or she has ‘no comprehension’ of their life’s purpose. Because this is the Fullness of Time however, Spiritually guided individuals do not have to wait until they are 38 to access the information as to their purpose for incarnating.
“What with the ego and the “pain body” it would seem that the deck is stacked against the individual Spirit. However, the "ace up the sleeve" is found in the statement, “The Kingdom of God is Within You”, which is the fundamental Truth to Spiritual Evolution. The 2 videos Pneuma-Yod and Pneuma-Yod Gongs of Change, with the song Because of the Fear is a visual depiction of what the individual has within them. Still, the title of the song Because of the Fear relates how the Human Race is handicapped with the paralyzing emotion of fear. This has prevented our acceptance that we have the ability to end suffering.
“If you have watched the videos you may have wondered why we produced 2 videos to the same song. The answer reveals another way to employ Deductive Reasoning. Because this is so central to the Initiative, we will take the time to explain the videos from a consciousness perspective in the next part of Section 2. You may like to view the videos again, only instead of just watching the pictures also concentrate on seeing the patterns of conscious energy.
Dismissing the naysayers who think all crop circles are hoaxes perpetrated by bored human beings, we want you to consider another theory. An article on the web in respect to the location of the crop circle relates that Benoit Mandelbrot, the discoverer of the Mandelbrot Set “…had taught at Cambridge. Even more coincidental was that this crop circle had appeared one year to the day when a lead article in New Scientist Magazine had admitted that it was impossible to draw this diagram without a computer.”
“So much for the scientific explanation, how does the Mandelbrot Set and the statement The Kingdom of God is Within help us to overcome the ego and “pain body”? Throughout the last 2 millennia Humanity has seen “evil” as something outside of themselves; mainly because religious and political leaders have labeled everything or person that did not agree with their position as evil. In the Middle-Ages it was considered heresy to say that the Earth went round the Sun, and yet today it is common knowledge that the Sun is at the center of the Solar System. As we have shown, there are 2 aspects of the human consciousness within a person that are most definitely not beneficial to Spiritual Evolution. The key word here is “within”; the ego and “pain body” are “within” a human being until they are transformed, which is the purpose of the Initiative. Nonetheless, the “Good News” is that a human being also has an “ace up the sleeve” namely, The Kingdom of God within them. The “ace” is that at any time a person can “choose” to seek their Spirit within. As the Spirit is a Spark of God, it directly connects the individual to God. Seeking instigates the access and communication and that is why we were told to “ask”, “seek”, and “knock.” We were promised that if we asked, it would be “given”, if we sought, then we would “find”, and if we knocked it would be “opened” to us. In other words, an individual has to initiate the connection.
Returning to the Mandelbrot Set and the statement The Kingdom of God is Within You as a means to overcoming the ego and “pain body”, the message is the power is in your hands, or rather heart. Yes there are the 2 aspects of the false self within a human being, but because the vast dynamic consciousness of the Kingdom of God is within your heart, you have an unlimited source of Spirituality to access. As you will discover, there are multiple levels within you; starting with your Spark of God or Spirit, Holy Spirit, Christ-Consciousness, 3 levels of the Higher Self and the Divine Will. Each level needs to be accessed as you learn to know yourself, and becomes easier as you progress. But first you need to begin to change the way you think…”
As a guide, we will use the instances of the false self from In Search of Peace: FOR THE CHILDREN, expanding the Higher Self and Intuition’s teaching in each incident. In participating by purchasing the book, sends a powerful message to the universe as to your intent. You are taking an opportunity to help not only yourself, but also the world. In other words, this Stage will help you be identified as one of the 777,000 born with a specific purpose to fulfil. Your Higher Self is the key to unlocking that pre-incarnate purpose.
In Stage Intuition, we will post once a month, because we want to engage you more in this Stage. Our first section will begin around mid-January. During the interim, we recommend getting a paperback or e-book copy of In Search of Peace: FOR THE CHILDREN to read. As we said every penny is going to help Children and get Carol Rosin’s Treaty signed, which is why Carol graciously and openly shared her life. In the book, Carol candidly relates her extraordinary experiences with Dr. Wernher von Braun, Dr. Timothy Leary, John Denver, and reveals how she found her husband of 27 years, the celebrated actor Jon Cypher. Her recounting of an extraordinary encounter with an intelligent being and the message she was tasked to give the world explains why despite intolerable attacks on her character, she has not missed a step in her determination to keep space free of weapons.
Although one of her goals was to vindicate von Braun, it was not the primary goal. We see that goal in the book’s dedication to children, especially the world’s orphans. Having the privilege and honor of working with Carol in writing her Biography, as well as putting the record straight on all the speculation, it is our sincere wish that messages of hope are what this book leaves you with. More especially that we are not up against an impossible task and that each of us has a part to play.
As you read the anecdotes of our three life-journeys in the book, when it brings up memories of similar occasions, which it often will, write them down. This is because during Stage Intuition we encourage you to share your observations and experiences with the ego. This can be with either yours, or someone else’s. We would also like you to offer examples of behavior and actions that you think might have circumvented the need to deal with the ego. We will post the most helpful and address any questions and or suggestions. As we move deeper into this stage, you will find it easier.
