Part 48 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. As Blu and Ska, they are now well into their new life, around 40,000 BC in the mountains of northwestern Spain. At this point of the story, our Agents are no longer conscious of their true identities; the new brain has taken over their souls — for now. Previous episodes.

Stari-ki was duly impressed with the cave painting Blu and Ska revealed to him in the last episode, seeing at once its usefulness in training exercises to build his armies. Still in the cave, Ska asked Stari-ki the purpose of amassing these armies and he decided to tell them more about the Rebel mission. As Stari-ki spoke of other worlds and rebels, Blu remembered something, “and then it went away”, leaving Stari-ki to wonder, who are these guys?

StarikiStari-ki led them outside the cave where they snuffed the firestick. He walked them to a little grassy clearing.

There would be one solid test — their fighting skills. The natives were good fighters but very limited in terms of the moves and countermoves in which he had been trained. This would be the litmus test to determine if they were natives or not. Could they pretend to be worse fighters than they are? He would have to incent them with a little pain to fight back and give it all they had.

“Look, guys, I have to give you tremendous credit for what you’ve just done. I’m going to be giving you a lot more of my own time, I can see that. You two deserve to learn everything I can teach you. One of the things I’m going to be teaching you is how to fight.”

He saw their reaction, which he read as confidence in their own skills. Good, that will also incent them to show how good they can be. “Yes, I know, you are already great fighters; I saw that with my own eyes as you cut down my men. But there are moves and countermoves you may not know yet. Let’s see how you do against me — two against one. Obviously, we’re not going to do anything to each other that would reduce the army’s fighting effectiveness — no broken bones, missing eyes, and so on.”

He smiled warmly at them, and they could see that he really liked fighting so much that he was into play-fighting, which they loved too. They all smiled and started circling, looking at how the opponent(s) reacted to each movement.

Stari-ki pretended a mistake where he lunged forward as if to push Blu, and Blu captured his hand against his chest and bent it backward, only to see a left coming at him. Blu released the hand and went to heel-of-hand uppercut Stari-ki while blocking the blow, but Stari-ki was ready for that…

Only a few blows and kicks got through in either direction and before long Stari-ki saw that they were about to pin him down and he wouldn’t be able to escape. He didn’t want them to think that in a real fight the two of them could beat him, and although he didn’t like doing it, the lesser of two evils was to escalate one level up from play fighting, and so he cracked their skulls together.

He stood up exultantly. His test had worked. These were no natives. Blu and Ska looked up distrustfully. He would have to win them back after that dirty trick. They stood up, rubbing their aching heads.

“Guys, forgive me, I’m always in a hurry,” he said in genuine apology. “I really enjoyed that, let’s do more of it. But first, have a seat. I want to tell you something.” They made themselves comfortable, Blu and Ska still ministering to their heads while raptly listening.

“You guys don’t remember it, but you’re not natives. You’re like me. You’re a high officer in the Rebel army — maybe even a Prince like me — you just don’t remember it.”

Blu and Ska

Blu and Ska stared at him in awe. It was too much to wrap their head around and yet it had the ring of some truth in it.

He went on with his re-indoctrination, telling them the same story he had given Aldus and that the three of them were actually Lucifer, living through these host bodies and brains. That was the problem — those brains. They could take over the Rebel consciousness inside as they had obviously done with Blu and Ska, Stari-ki thought.

“The brains were our own fault, of course,” Stari-ki said. “We did the genetic alteration that made the brain compete for control with the inhabiting consciousness, or soul, if you like.” Blu and Ska heard all this as if they had heard it before and Stari-ki read that in their minds. “It was a weapon system. If the backstabber’s Agents were to inhabit natives, they would be put to sleep and neutralized by this brain. We would do our part by landing Rebels on the planet, with the brains they were born with on another planet, so we would not have the same problem. But then we decided to beef up by inhabitation as well, having Rebel souls born into Earth hominid babies in utero, and that resulted in cases like you guys and Aldus.”

“I’m going to see if I can help you get all your old memories back. I don’t promise anything but I’ll do my best to wake you up to your true Rebel identities.”

My best to all,

We can each make a difference

In the year 2000, every member state of the United Nations agreed to wipe out extreme poverty in the world by 2015 through implementation of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which were inspired by the ideas of economist Jeffrey Sachs. The final MDG Report found that the 15-year effort has produced the most successful anti-poverty movement in history, though there is still work to be done.

There is evidence that the resources of the planet, properly stewarded, are more than enough to make everybody’s quality of life quite acceptable in terms of the basics. The fact that we have been squandering some or all of those resources of course creates a potential shortfall for some. But these are human actions and theoretically under our control.

In September 2015 global leaders will meet to finalize the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to continue the work to end poverty. Although many have valid issues and concerns about the UN, this organization is our greatest hope for a global communication strategy. The only way to bring everybody to the table for the highest possible good is an environment where every member state feels it has an equal voice.

This is true no matter the challenge or the setting. Let’s look at our own engagement with the world. For the highest most far-reaching results, I recommend we employ the concept of engaging relationships, where we all look at every relationship as an opportunity, whether we are enjoying it at the moment or not. We accept each relationship as a given, making the best of it that we can — drawing upon the wellsprings of unfamiliar creativity patterns in doing so, and pulling out all the stops. This creates the environment for making maximum improvements, optimizing all the issues together. Continue reading

Part 47 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. As Blu and Ska, they are now well into their new life, around 40,000 BC in the mountains of northwestern Spain. At this point of the story, our Agents are no longer conscious of their true identities; the new brain has taken over their souls — for now. Previous episodes.

In the last episode, Blu and Ska learn of Stari-ki’s secret mission and their role in it. When Stari-ki tells them of his plan to take over the entire world with a large army he is amassing, Blu and Ska feel grateful to be in on such a grandiose plan, and grateful for Stari-ki’s leadership. Exactly where Stari-ki wanted them before he revealed they would be joining him in his mission. Suddenly, not knowing why, Blu was compelled to show Stari-ki something that would help with the new mission.

Blu took a stout stick and dipped it in a campfire as they passed. The builder of the campfire looked up respectfully as Stari-ki, Blu and Ska nodded their thanks and continued walking. The sun was coming up, so this meant they would be heading into a cave, Stari-ki reasoned.

After a short walk Blu led the way into the cave, shielding the paintings from view with his body as he had done so many times before.

Stari-ki had no idea what they were going to show him in the cave. Perhaps they had discovered a bright shiny rock — gold — and Stari-ki knew that the plan called for doing something with gold later on, but it would be irrelevant to him now. Yes it must be something like that.

When Blu did his trick of revealing the painting of the charging boar, he expected Stari-ki to have the usual reaction of getting ready to kill the thing. Instead, Stari-ki gasped and smiled and stepped toward it, knowing instantly that it was not a real boar. He moved in closer to inspect the work and put his fingers up to it but did not touch it. “This is remarkable,” he said with great admiration. He turned to them. “You invented it?” he asked and they both nodded sheepishly. “We can definitely use this for training exercises, propaganda brainwashing, interrogation, for many purposes,” he thought excitedly out loud, getting it at once and again impressing Blu and Ska. “You’ve just doubled our chances of building these armies on the seacoast,” he said enthusiastically, slapping them both on the shoulders, and revealing that he was in some doubt of being able to achieve his ambitious mission.

Learning Their Orders

Part 46 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. As Blu and Ska, they are now well into their new life, around 40,000 BC in the mountains of northwestern Spain. At this point of the story, our Agents are no longer conscious of their true identities; the new brain has taken over their souls — for now. Previous episodes

In the last episode, Stari-ki was helping Aldus to regain his memories of his true rebel identity. We hear his convoluted story of the Creation from Lucifer’s point of view, calling The Great Being “the backstabber” because he proclaimed himself the One and Only God. Then we learn the rebel mission: to destroy the backstabber and become sole masters of the universe. Meanwhile, in his tent with Izbel, Blu has woken up and is wondering about the woman in his dream and her message: “We have to wake up.”

 

The first light of dawn crept across his eyelids, fluttering them, and Blu came semi-awake behind still-closed eyes. The grass bed felt extra comfortable. He remembered the meeting with Stari-ki and felt good. The new King was going to make things better for him and Izbel. Maybe they could now risk having children. He’d have to wait to find out before saying anything to Izbel.

Melchizedek was there too, though now hypnotized into believing he was Blu, along for the ride as an observer but not aware of his own separate existence.

In a nearby tent, Ska was already awake and ardently making love to Asa. He was surprised that this time he felt so merged with Asa as souls, aware of each other. He could see it in her eyes too, but he wouldn’t break the spell by speaking to ask if she felt the same way. Funny, I feel like a woman too, he thought.

Layla was present but felt herself to be Asa. Like Melchizedek, she had none of Layla’s memories accessible to remind her of her true identity.

Suddenly Ska’s keen senses warned him of an intruder and he rolled off Asa into a fighting crouch outside the leafy tent. There before him was Stari-ki, towering over him and grinning. Asa was visible to both men, in a moment of frozen tableau with no movement. Then Asa slightly covered herself. Ska wondered if Stari-ki would want Asa. Stari-ki read that thought and grinned more widely, looked again at Asa to tease Ska, then back at Ska who held a poker face. Stari-ki laughed out loud. Ska thought to himself, how stealthy for such a large man, for me not to have been aware of him sooner.

“Sorry to have to take him away from you so early, Asa,” Stari-ki said, putting a huge arm around Ska, who had always considered himself huge but not compared to Blu and now especially Stari-ki. But he liked Stari-ki and welcomed his arrival and willingness to let them live.

“I understand, Stari-ki,” Asa said demurely. Stari-ki did not want anyone to call him King; he preferred his own name. The survivors had all learned that very quickly.

When they arrived seconds later at Blu’s tent, Blu was up and ready to go. His hearing was, like Ska’s, amazing, and something they were both proud of. He had figured out the scene from the tone of the voices in the next tent.

“I’m going to share some information with you,” Stari-ki said. “It’s secret and not to be shared with anyone except your wives.” They were both glad to hear they would be able to let their mates know everything, which Stari-ki knew by reading their minds. He had not been getting any signal from our Agents, Melchizedek or Layla. These were two smart and strong men and he needed them, and he knew they saw him as a good thing too. Now he needed to train them with enough information to maximize their value to him, but not more information than they needed. Stari-ki was driven by his orders, and nothing else mattered.

He led them away from the encampment and to the edge of a cliff that looked down at a wide river in which the setting moon was reflected. They sat admiring the view while learning their orders.

Part 45 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. As Blu and Ska, they are now well into their new life, around 40,000 BC in the mountains of northwestern Spain. Previous episodes.

It was revealed in the last episode that Stari-ki had saved the old King to wake him up to his true rebel identity, which he did by shocking Aldus into remembering. Stari-ki got him to reveal what he didn’t like about Blu and Ska: they were too smart, and perhaps capable of overthrowing him. Stari-ki promises to make Aldus King again and then shares his plan to build armies throughout the territory. He will be taking Blu and Ska with him. Meantime, our Agents, deeply identified with the bodies they inhabit, see each other in a dream in which Layla signals to Melchizedek, “We have to wake up.”

Stari-ki and Aldus had not spoken for several minutes as the mushroom rush captured their attentions. Aldus had forgotten where he was momentarily and jumped slightly as Stari-ki began his story.

“When you regain all of your memories, you will remember being the Lightbringer himself. You and I are Him… experiencing and making localized decisions through us.”

The Lightbringer

Aldus remembered having heard this before, after a slight delay during which he was awed as if hearing it for the first time. “Yes… I am Him… I feel it now… but who is He?” Aldus asked.

“You feel it now intuitively… it’s an inner knowing that comes by itself. One day you will experience it directly again, when your loop has been completed and you are capable of withstanding being the full Him again,” Stari-ki said. “As to who He is, what I have gleaned from my many lifetimes is that in the beginning there were many of us. We were called Elohim and we were equally strong and equally smart. And we were all different, each of us unique, and we didn’t always agree with each other.”

Up above, the One Self, looking down on himself in the Stari-ki role espousing those rebel beliefs, smiled a sad smile to his first googillion or so avatars who had returned to become seasoned personality aspects and characters he could play with and have fun with and never be alone inside again. Their empathy resonated powerfully back to The One — themselves — and throughout Creation. Someday The One would get Stari-ki back, and even the Lightbringer — the second avatar, Lucifer — who had started the Revolution. Lucifer’s madness had blinded him to the truth that he Lucifer was The One playing a role, causing him to make up and believe a story that in the beginning there were many personalities. This caused The One a poignant bittersweet sadness that was a minor chord in the cosmic chorus.

In reality, from Nothing had come One Thing. In the beginning there had been only The One.

Waking and Sleeping

Part 44 of the ongoing saga of The Great Being, the One Self that manifests as each of us

We have been following the experiences of two Agents of Cosmic Intelligence, Melchizedek and Layla, here on a mission that started in 200,000 BC. As Blu and Ska, they are now well into their new life, around 40,000 BC in the mountains of northwestern Spain.

Now unaware of their identities as Agents, Blu and Ska had been accepted into Stari-ki’s army. As they traveled down the mountain together, they passed the ruins of their former tribe’s camp. Blu and Ska, and their old King (now Aldus), seemed to be the only survivors, until they reached the valley below where they were welcomed by their mates. As they wandered off to find privacy, Aldus whispered to Stari-ki, “I have never trusted those men.” What now for Blu and Ska? Previous episodes.

Satri-ki and AldusThe old King Aldus followed King Stari-ki into his glorious tent, stealing glances and trying to fix in his mind what he was seeing so that he could try to duplicate as much as possible of its wonders for himself. How was this made?!

“Have a seat over here, little brother,” Stari-ki said. He saw that the now-subordinate Aldus, occupying this wizened body, was still coming in and out of it. When Stari-ki had found him on the battlefield, he knew at once that Aldus had become totally enslaved by the brain in the human he had occupied. Although it was the rebels who secretly caused the brain to come out slightly better than intended, hence competitive with an occupying mind of almost any strength, it was now causing them as much difficulty as it was causing to the Old Guard.

Rather than killing the old King, Stari-ki decided to wake him up to his true rebel identity, as he would be far more useful that way. As a necessary shock he would perform a seeming miracle, and would need to conceal it from everyone else around them. He had to quickly figure out the best plan as Aldus and his bodyguards were running toward him, weapons drawn.

He mind-blasted everyone in his line of sight, including his own men, but spared Aldus. They were now the only ones standing. With his mind, Stari-ki helped Aldus stop in his tracks without falling and held him steady. Aldus felt himself being manipulated physically by outside control, and saw every warrior fall and die simultaneously. He was indeed shocked and knew that reality was more than what he had come to believe. And then he remembered knowing this before.

There had not been time to palaver while the extermination was going on, and now that it was all over Stari-ki had intended to give Aldus his personal attention, to stabilize him at his new higher level of consciousness so he would not slip back. Then when Aldus brought up not trusting Blu and Ska, it played right into his plan to sit down and talk with the former King.

Once seated, Aldus reached into a pouch and offered Stari-ki a bit of psychedelic mushroom. The rebel leader stared at it for a moment, weighing what would get the job done best, with or without the mushroom, and decided they should both take it, so they did. Get us on the same wavelength at least, Stari-ki thought.

“What don’t you trust about Blu and Ska?” Stari-ki asked. He had already learned their names and being good at names remembered theirs easily.

“They are too smart,” Aldus responded. “They stick out like sore thumbs from the rest of these savages.” Aldus still half-thought he was one of the savages, but now he was fully occupying the true identity he was when he came to Earth. It was easier in the presence of Stari-ki, whose presence was clearly that of a god. He, Aldus, was that too. Now he remembered himself. Holding onto that remembering was not going to be easy, though. The mushroom seemed to help, although sometimes it caused him to panic himself one way or another.

“Have you recovered your ability to read minds?” Stari-ki asked. At first surprised, as he hadn’t remembered having that ability until Stari-ki mentioned it, he tried to send his mind out to read Blu’s and Ska’s, but nothing happened.

“Give it time,” Stari-ki advised. “Right now both of them are thinking lustful thoughts about their wives. I find their level of inner life very typical of the readings I get from all these hominids. You, at least, are awake with me right now!”

“Maybe they are capable of hiding, shielding? Aren’t Agents supposed to have amazing powers?” Aldus asked, fascinated by what was coming out of his mouth, as if by itself. Bits of his memory were coming back a trickle at a time, in realtime.

“They put up a good fight,” Stari-ki said, relishing memories of his triumphs over Agents, and how none of them were pushovers. He ached for his next fight like that.

There was silence but Stari-ki could tell that Aldus was not convinced. “OK, what is the real reason you don’t trust those guys?” Stari-ki asked disarmingly.
