More than a hundred years ago historian Baron John Acton coined the phrase “power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The feeling of power has a similar effect on the brain to cocaine by increasing the levels of testosterone and its by-product 3-androstanediol in both men and women. This in turn works on the brain’s reward circuits by raising levels of dopamine in the nucleus accumbens, which can be very addictive. Cocaine acts in a similar way, which can have varied effects from increasing alertness, confidence, energy, sense of well-being and euphoria. Power has almost identical effects to cocaine and too much of it can produce excess dopamine leading to more negative effects such as arrogance, impatience, anxiety, paranoia, restlessness and the drive to achieve dominance through competitive exclusion.

Animals low down in the dominance scale have lower levels of dopamine in key brain areas, but if they are promoted to a higher position, then their dopamine levels rise accordingly. This makes them more aggressive, sexually assertive, and power hungry. On the other hand demotion in a hierarchy lowers dopamine levels, increases stress hormones and reduces cognitive function. Being pumped up on a power high makes people more alert and smarter because dopamine improves the functioning of the frontal lobes. Power addiction, or sadomasochism  (submissiveness and dominance) has similar effects on same reward circuits of the brain as cocaine. Thus just like drugs we can build up a tolerance to power, which can easily lead to an escalation of power addiction. This may account for the outlandish behavior of certain petty tyrants and politicians. And when power addicts gang up together and feed each other’s self-aggrandizement and power-lust all hell can break loose, especially if they are exploiting the little guy to support their habit, and if there are no curbs on their bullying and buffoonery.

The Borg is presovereign, Hindbrain, hivemind, The Machine, Master/Slave. It is the preilluminated, preinitiated pupal human that is killing the planet and collapsing the purity of the evolutionary force. It is a delusion and a fabrication, because the whole HUman is already here although grossly repressed and retarded by the process of de-evolution associated with institutionalized mental defectiveness or denial of Spirit. No matter how much I write on it, it will always be misunderstood, because it is a "perspective" effect, found mostly in the beginning through neti neti...this is not it, this is not it. For we don’t know Spirit until we experience alchemical transformation through kundalini awakening. That is, suffering shows us where the Golden Rule of sovereignty for all is not being upheld. Simply avoiding choice is not self-determination. The transpersonal stages extend from the time of spiritual alchemical awakening—that is, from the time at which spirituality awakens as the primary dimension of life and is always implicit in life.

The sovereign realizer uses empowerment (cosmic connection) for the good of all. The presovereign uses power against the self or others in an attempt to gain comfort, security or advantage. Thus the presovereign's form of power is in fact powerlessness no matter how overblown its appearance. Using the dopamine circuits for the gnostic or Muse directed vocation is what Barbara Marx Hubbard called Suprasex. This is the ultimate exaltation and redemption of a human life, but few reach it because they settle for the more base forms of power-lust associated with Maslow's primary needs. In the sovereignty series we study dopamine and how to expedite the prefrontal lobes, so we can overcome the short-circuiting and rise to the realization of our true life's work and the self-actualization of our unique being.

The old mammalian brain, or limbic system, is concerned with emotions and instincts, feeding, fighting, fleeing, and sexual behaviour.  As the "triune brain theory" originator Paul MacLean observes, the emotional system is rigged to find everything either "agreeable or disagreeable."  Survival depends on avoidance of pain and repetition of pleasure, guided by various emotions (fear, joy, rage, pleasure and pain etc) that stimulate behavioral responses to salient phenomena. The limbic system helps to determine the valence (feeling) and salience (validity, attention) of experience, as well as unpredictability and creative behaviour. MacLean proposed that dogmatism, superstition and paranoia are to be found in the Limbic system along with the tendency of thinking to be subordinate to feeling, and to rationalize drives and desires.  Thus the primal mammalian brain of the limbic system tends to hijack the pilot seat of our value judgements, instead of the more advanced, rational neocortex which is "the mother of invention and father of abstract thought."  The emotional brain decides whether our higher brain has a "good" idea or not, and whether it feels true and right or worthy of attention.

Power-with is relationship consciously directed by the neocortex, while power-over (sado) or power-under (masochistic) are instigated primarily by the limbic system, and the neocortical intelligence is subsumed into the service of the old mammalian brain. In general this more primitive relationship to power is the standard operating mode in our current species evolution. And it will continue to be so until the Golden Rule, love and sovereignty are the guiding principles of HUman life. Because they have not consciously arisen (disembedded) from the old mammalian brain circuits presovereigns are unconsciously still involved in power manipulation, either by power-over (sado) or power-under (masochistic) maneuvers. Ultimately power-over and power-under end up being powerless because they are not “power-with, or Phi.” This is why the Golden Rule, love and sovereignty are the guiding and protecting principles of HUman life.

The presovereign is infantile, and the sovereign is mature or aspiring to become mature. It depends how many brain circuits are in operation during any thought, emotion, act, deed or behavior. In dreams it is very easy to distinguish higher transpersonal dreams from the more mundane popcorn entertaining dreams. The difference between the Hind and the Fore is one of frequency could even say "braids" of consciousness involved. It is virtually impossible to get someone to act or be from the higher modes if they have not been initiated and developed in those modes. Presovereign's default to the only power they know...manipulation, seduction, dependency, bribery, threat, exclusion, comparison, jealousy, ridicule and criticism. If you notice underlying whatever cocktail of power-abuse they use it is always a shaky, ill-defined personality, because Borg machinations are always the result of the lack of a sovereign core self. It is the caged prisoner in others that attempts to cage us as well. It is dangerous to want the acceptance or respect of a presovereign, for we must remain free from the vortex of their will no matter how flattering their overenthusiastic praise.

The evolutionary urge IS Eros or Amore, or Love...and so when relationship is engaged at the mere limbic brain and material level this tends to suspend growth and the relationship is addictive, codependent, unconscious, and focused on mutual infantile masturbation. Since the evolutionary urge, Eros, Amore, or Love is only realized at the transcendent sovereign level, we see that equity and sovereignty is essential to healthy human relationship...and indeed only HUmans are really capable of relationship in which the Golden Rule is realized. Once we reach the sound barrier to where mutual sovereignty becomes the great attractor force of society...we will finally pull away from being an eminently suicidal species. The evolutionary force cannot be denied without endless suffering and wasted lives. The joy of living a human life is the great quest to explore the depth of being HUman.

The I/Thou rift is fundamentally healed through spiritual empowerment and the moral adjustment from prefrontal lobe ignition that is the basis of adherence to the Golden Rule. The Golden Rule is synonymous with spirituality, thus it is obvious that whatever the religions of the world are engaged in it is not spirituality. Power-over and power-under is a failure to become fully human, and to be hanging out in the twilight zone of the centaur, half beast/half human. If we are able to make conscious and transcend our own dominant and submissive relationship to ourselves and truly love ourself into wholeness...only then are we empowered enough to love thy neighbor as thyself. Loving other as oneself is a "radiant" or sufficiency condition, while misuse of power arises from "sucking" or deficiency conditions of all types. An inferiority complex is underlying all drives for being top dog. While a superiority complex underlies all immobilizations for being bottom dog.

Other than mere random unpredictability, only spiritual initiation and development is truly transcendent of conditions through being able to hold-with the tension of opposites, ambiguity, not knowing and the ineffable complexity of reading and knowing our experience of the world. When the stress-factor and brute-power nature of the culture at large doesn't allow or permit the higher prefrontal lobe development of its citizens then we have conditions of spiritual retardation and misuse of power that perpetuate the primitive Borg culture for thousands of years...with the subtle mechanisms for dehumanization getting more and more insidious and malevolent as the centuries go by. The worst aspect of this unreality is the pandering, suppressing, demoralizing, lying, muzzling, enabling and compliance with the machinations of social decay...for it is the continuation of spiritual dishonesty that keeps us alienated from our soul and allows for the primitive delinquency and distress of Homo sapiens to precede unabated.

“Truthful, heartfelt communication is usually troubling and confusing to the presovereign other, who may react very badly and lash out. But this can be a chance for the other to open up to wisdom, usually not at that time, but perhaps later on. Avoidance or no wordly communication at all would actually be preferable to perpetuating the illusions of the presovereign via nice but non-truthful communication made in the interests of keeping the relationship "smoothed over" and comfortable. You might question in these cases if a true relationship has been realized at all. Certainly the prospective sovereign has regressed towards infantilism and disempowerment any time he or she compromises for such purposes. All the best rawfoods and spiritual practices in themselves are unlikely to compensate for engaging in such compromises habitually - they are more likely to merely mitigate ongoing damage somewhat.” Paul Reynolds

This is the problem with communication or coexistence between memes. How one uses power vs. empowerment is related to the stage of realization or development of the Spiral Dynamics. The lower down in the Spiral the more hostile and outlaw (or essentially childish) is one's use of power, because the self/other dichotomy is rigged at the animal level with either competing or exploiting (using). Obviously mere rivalry and utility is not going to make for a harmonious relationship as it is directly counter to sovereignty, creativity, autonomy, and higher executive functioning and decision making. That is the lower meme's use of power is dehumanizing. This is a problem in the real world, for you may find that most potential relationships and work places operate at the presovereign, disempowering meme levels. What this means is that to survive within the current culture is to submit to ongoing brain damage, heart damage, hormone deficiency and general wear and tear on body, mind and soul by stress damage. 

Having to establish a self-care practice that mitigates the damage done by the presovereign use of toxic power is a full time job in itself. Thus before we are swallowed whole by the Borg maelstrom, we must attempt to save our life by finding a means of livelihood in which primitive use of power is absent. That is we must truly grow up from our own dysfunctional childhood, AND the dysfunctional childhood of the culture at large in order to preserve our humanity and our health. Technological, genetic, behavioral, cultural "noise" creates an environmental dissonance from which pulling together a coherent mind, body and soul becomes virtually impossible. So basically we must fast from our past, and fast from the entirety of Borg culture in order to come back into organic-cosmic alignment enough to be true to our sovereign Self. If we are not true to our sovereign core, then we are forever off track and lost to the true meaning and purpose of our existence. Sovereignty is essential to thrival. Sovereign executive functioning is not only essential to thrival it is also the survival imperative of the human species. Without sovereignty we are not HUman.

The cocreative genius taps into the trans-normal, transpersonal realm for that is their source, their security, their sustenance and their joy.

Active compassion, or directing energies towards constructive ends via the initiation and use of the heart illuminated prefrontal lobes means that sovereigns don't blame or scapegoat others, nor do they dream up imaginary foes. They accept responsibility for the power of choice in their life…for this is their freedom and their passion. As such they are not coercive, manipulative, seductive or subversive and they are definitely not aggressive...nor are they self-sabotaging, victims, doormats, scapegoats or martyrs. The sovereign is a proactive niche maker, continually refining their environment to support higher HUmanity, but they can also walk through the valley of the shadow of death without fearing evil.

The brighter we shine the greater our power to negate all evil essences, influences, beings or activities. White light meditation has been used for spiritual protection by magicians, alchemists, sorcerers, spiritualists, new agers, spiritual healers, and by psychics and shamans of all cultures. It is said to protect from all forms of psychic attack and from the influence of anyone or anything negative, including the demonic, evil spirits and negative people. Raising our spiritual vibration automatically protects us from lower level energies whether they be real or imaginary, inner or outer. White light meditation actually creates new neural connections in your brain and so you don't have to work as hard or do it quite as often to achieve the same immunity effects. Raising our spiritual vibratory rate, and positive and abundant energy enables us to achieve a higher state of spiritual awareness that automatically protects us from lower level energies.

All meditation acts as health insurance, socioimmunity support and as an adaptogen, so that as we become stronger and fortified against malevolence we no longer have to spend time and energy wasted in regression and repair. A radiant heart is necessary for an enlightened mind and so fear, defense and aggressive offense are contradictory to the expansion and integation of being associated with sovereign will. That is, we cannot transcend The Given unless we can halt our preoccupation or proclivity towards focusing and reacting to the negative, dark and shadow. The animal brain is wired for the default of attending to threat and danger, however to obtain the self-authority of sovereign determinacy we must curb the fear-default and move towards the progressive unfolding of the radiant heart. Any time and energy we spend focusing on the dark, that is not readily convertible to the light, is time and energy wasted on avoiding sovereign mastery and our Self-Made world.

Raising our own frequency creates a high spin-resonance barrier that detaches us from negative telepathic psychic chatter when we are with other people. The brighter our spiritual light and the higher our sense of well-being the less we are drawn into sympathetic resonance with antilife psychic energies. Perfect invincibility and invulnerability requires union with the cosmos and a strong axis mundi between heaven and earth. It is our cosmic connection and spiritual light radiance that constitutes the power to be immune or highly resistant to all forms of external damage and danger. Existential immutability allows us to sustain our spiritual sovereign existence against forces of decay, the evil eye, the vengeance of the Borg and the collapse of civilization. The fact that enlightenment represents immunity also points to the fact that wasting energy on "defense" rather than “self-excellence” is perhaps one of the most common pitfalls to preventing sovereignty in the beginning stages of our journey to self-dominion.

The heart's EM-field is a determining factor in the brain's frequency waves, which determines mood, depth, span and quality of consciousness. Thus our filter and lens is built from the heart-brain relationship. It stands to reason that the brain is the servant of the heart because the heart's field is 10 times greater than that of the brain. Therefore we could say that it is the brain's job to regulate the inner and outer environment so that the heart can live in coherence thereby making a harmonious environment for quality consciousness. Nice little feedback loop between the heart and the brain in manifesting our reality. We would have to be a spiritual genius (ie: sovereign) in order to manifest an open heart and sublime mind in a society of haters. In order to be socially-immune and true to our Self we must raise our median frequency so we can habitually gravitate around the default vibration of love.

“It is not only your physical immune system that becomes strengthened; your psychic immune system is greatly enhanced as well. The latter protects you from the negative mental-emotional force fields of others, which are highly contagious. Inhabiting the body protects you not by putting up a shield, but by raising the frequency vibration of your total energy field, so that anything that vibrates at a lower frequency, such as fear, anger, depression, and so on, now exists in what is virtually a different order of reality. It doesn't enter your field of consciousness anymore, or if it does you don't need to offer any resistance to it because it passes right through you. Please don't just accept or reject what I am saying. Put it to the test.” ~ Eckhart Tolle (Power of Now)

Moving forward is a matter of using foresight or vision logic to place oneself in the time continuum between past and future. Transcendence or foresight is your psychic immune system that protects you from dissonant, discordant consciousness fields of others. If situations, relationships or communities are so toxic that exposure to the lower frequency mental-emotional fields dis-integrate and undermine our capacity for wholeness then it is essential that we move away from this negative energy. Even hanging out too much with lower memes can be disruptive to our ability to maintain the integrity of our being. If we allow ourselves to be degraded and discombobulated then we ultimately bring down the All. We can accomplish very little indeed under the burden of Borg insanity, and so once freed from this insidious spiritual gravity, we recover our enthusiasm and energy for LIFE!...and proceed more quickly towards the ideal vision of our destiny.

It is interesting that modern civilization is actually decivilizing in that it is mutating and devolving our DNA. The sins of "progress" in removing us from the integration/integrity of nature and Spirit (light, lifeforce and soul) literally necessitate a reversal of the socalled arrow of progress. That is to recover Eros we must return to The Garden if we expect to get to the stars in one piece. The reason why we must retrace our steps to remove the devolving aspects of civilization is that so much of our advancements for convenience and comfort actually create a domino effect of systems collapse in the environmental, physical, mental and spiritual domains. Thus in our ignore-ance we are systematically wrecking our cosmos even AS we apparently evolve into it. Of course there is a way to be in a human body and in the universe without such wholesale destruction...and when we discover how to do that only then could we be called a conscious and God-loving, Eros abiding species.

Revisiting the supreme intelligence of nature and cosmogenesis is not a regression by any means. To not do so is to wield a barbarian club through manifest existence and condemn ourselves to being an eternally violent species. Such a species is doomed to self-induced extinction via the accumulated karmic backwash of applied ignorance. Hubris may yet be the downfall of Man, just as it may have been the downfall of multiple species of hominids before us. The further we go down the road of anti-Phi, anti-Nature technology, the faster we fall into an ever deepening trance of mental resistance  to cosmic intelligence and  artifice, fakery, falsity or basically “incorrect” perception from which we may never recover our collective sanity. For example...mental illness is a given in a cooked food culture. 

We must become our own parent, leader and savior in a society that doesn’t acknowledge the orthodoxy of the cosmic or sovereign illumination of the individual. Herdmind is bound by a survivalist moral altruism in which an individual has no right to exist for their own sake, but that service to others is the only justification of his existence. This self-sacrifice as opposed to self-actualization lies at the core of our collective spiritual retardation. The darkside of the Hindbrain society is built on usury, cheating, extortion, threat, brain-damage, sexual harrassment, soul-prostitution, self-negation and other fallen modes of thought and behavior. This represents a more primitive, maladaptive, overcompensating coping style to not having our spiritual developmental needs met.

Schema Therapy developed by Dr. Jeffrey E. Young assumes that early maladaptive schemas and modes arise when core needs are not met. Some basic needs that have been identified are: connection, mutuality, reciprocity, flow, autonomy, sovereignty and being "seen." The grand existential double bind in living within a fallen culture is that our maladaptive schemas and coping styles constitute a way of being and personality disorder that condemns us to such a low unstable reactions/behaviors and hypersensitivity to "triggers" that elicity self-destructive reactions. Thus by not being “lucid” in the collective dream that reinforces victimization and loss of sovereign agency keeps us forever bound to an ambiguous, incomplete, incoherent, intangible unintelligible nightmare of existence - trapped in a “malevolent universe,” because we failed to claim the right to our own happiness. To learn how to be a non-sacrificial individual is the governing principle of human evolution and the path to enlightened civilization.

Maladapting to the power-pyramid can only ever collapse our sense of well-being and thrival, even if it is only by selling our soul in order to climb up the sordid thing. If we submit to Metabolic X, power-poison and mortification then this is both pre-moral, presovereign behavior, that is one and the same as the self-inflicted mediocrity of the Borg. Dominion as a spiritual denomination is the most corrosive force to the structure of the power pyramid - in which case the sovereign may be accused of being competitive, divisive and militant when they are purely trying to maintain their own self-determination. The sovereign is attempting piety, authenticity and their truth, not to inflict it onto others, but to maintain their integrity within the maelstrom of dehumanization, homogeny and pressure to conform. Soul is not a religion it is a way of being. Evangelizing sovereignty is giving the finger to people who already believe that they own themselves and are on point. Thus sovereignty is a hidden practice, or un-practice as mostly what we are doing is stripping away that which is not us.

By saying we are sovereign, and not enlightened or a messiah, we might get by with a simple hair pull and punched nose, as it is too nebulous and unformed a concept to throw sticks and stones at, and presovereigns' may be very irked that they can't manipulate us like they are used to doing. But pandering to the lowest common denominator represents the height of tyranny. If you know who you are and what supports your growth and are on track actually creating your niche in which you can give your greatest gift and be who you really are...then boundaries become about clearly communicating your direction and not dallying too long with travelers that are going in a very different path to you. As we become a connoisseur of life that which doesn't suit our tastes (vibration) more quickly leaves our territory. Being a connoisseur helps us to stay on our sovereign track.

Don't compromise yourself for attention, acceptance or for the sake of media promotion or the applause of the crowd. The connoisseur doesn't compromise because he or she is always already OK. The hungry ghost races around looking for affection, attention, validation and meaning because the presovereign is an "outer-seeker," looking for succor and security in the world. But there is no outer-satiety for those with inner hunger, for inner-deficiency can never be met and filled from the outside, except under rare and sacred circumstances when the seeker has already done their work. Become a destiny creator and quickly we realize that manifesting reality is an inside job. It is not that the outer world is "meaningless" it is just that "meaning" is something that only we can give to our existence through the epicurious talent of coming alive to our sovereign Self. In order to give people back to themselves, we must first give ourselves back to our self. For we can't share the light, if we haven't already found it. What is our relationship to the currency of life?

Money one could equate with lifeforce, mana, the elixir of life, Eros, Spirit, Heart, bliss, honey, soul-facilitation, juice, get up and go, joy, cocreativity and SOVEREIGNTY. Thus if we are lacking money to fulfill our life dharma we might like to consider where the blocks to our enthusiasm lie, and what are we going to do about it. The conspiracy of ignore-ance that underlies commercial Flatland began at the beginnings of civilization. To overcome the hypnotic effect of status, gender, race, class, age, and our place of usefulness as a cog in the machine we must in effect rewild ourselves. We are NOT who we ourselves, others or the collective tell us we are. So what are we and how do we find out? To an extent we can begin to find out who we are by the revitalization and the inner marriage to impart more light (soul) in our bodymind, living for periods in nature, and also by imagining who we might be in a super advanced society on a different planet or far in the future. The only way we can emancipate ourselves from the matrix of The Given is to strip away the blinders of the conspiracy of ignore-ance and to imagine what life would be like in The Made world of our most life giving dreams.

Our life's journey is always to the core of our Being. How successful we are at defining and refining who we are, sets us apart from the cult of culture - so that we may be cosmically inspired, and not just bandying about in the mosh pit of collective chaos. The connoisseur has no desire for sweaty mosh pits. Happiness is not a matter of "things or experiences" it is a matter of discriminating taste for Phi frequency...for the cosmic human or "Christ" is an exquisitely blissed, blessed and gracefilled creature. To be a connoisseur is to Grok your place in the stream of existence...that is to be sovereign.

The term connoisseur comes from the French conoistre "to know." It is also associated with the Latin gnoscere "to recognize." To see, know and recognize at the Universal or witness level (subtle, causal) is to be Gnostic. That is to BE the universe recognizing know that "I am That" is to be happy for there is no separation between us and God (good). The hallmark of the sovereign is the knowledge that "I am That" or, I AM THAT I AM...thus we appeal or answer to no one but our maker. (Tat Tvam Asi: a Sanskrit sentence meaning of this Universe and Ātman minus its limitations of ignorance-cum-delusion.)

The Borg or Hindbrain human is on its way out because it is delusional, that is not Real in cosmic terms and thus is invariably evolutionarily selected against. In order to maintain a coercive hold over Spirit and life the anti-life regime has to become increasingly ignorant, aggressive and subversive. A culture of denial and nescience is a dying culture because Life is the complexification of integrity towards higher order and depth. The Hindbrain human society cannot be saved because it is homicidal and suicidal and is living for short-term gain, having little foresight or hindsight.

So what is a sovereign to do on a sinking ship, when the ship really must go down for the good of All and the welfare of the earth herself? Those that are awakened are to witness the collapse, save what is good, to rebuild and remember. Ultimately we are here to remember who we are above and beyond what the culture of death has made of us and to be insurgents against the tyranny of the unconscious, dehumanizing beast. The power pyramid is falling as we move beyond the primitive trance of the errant animal to inhabit the whole brain. Our job as a sovereign is to assist in pulling back the mists of time so that all may see more clearly the dawning of the rising sun.

Agenda 21, Codex Alimentarius, Monsanto’s food wars, vaccination, fluoride, aspartame and the thousands of agents of destruction used by Borg civilization to try and manhandle the species and maintain the dark shackles of control cannot work in the end. The reason why the darkside cannot win is because only the lightside has the light-Force on its side, for the evolutionary creatrix force of love (Eros) is the direct opposite of violence, aggression, brainwashing, repression, addiction, regression, oppression, gene-ocide and dehumanization. Active compassion rules in Universal terms…and only active compassion has a divine right to rule in a beneficent universe.

The noble human rules benignly over their “kingdom as themselves” with a true heart for they ARE the center of the universe. The sovereign knows that he who does not believe in himself always lies, and to lie against life is to live in fear. To fear fear is to go down with the ship. And to not Know Thyself is to go down with the ship having never really lived at all. The foresight, insight and compassion of the “whole” HUman allow for the objective witnessing necessary for continuity and the “dark and the fallen” works against the coherency needed for such cosmic alignment.

In my worldview there is no such thing as reincarnation. In my experience we participate in the past and future through the collective the form of psychic nostalgia and future-nostalgia. Imagining the future is a kind of nostalgia by which we remember ourselves into being. In my worldview there is also no such thing as disincarnate spirits...for a spirit exists through the living crystal of a lifeform's body. Thus our demons and spirit guides are part of our own psychic life that arise within the living dream to prompt us forth in our development...both good and bad psychic phenomena can move us forward if we are awake to their message and "act" accordingly, not just simply "react." As such the beneficent leadership of prefrontal lobe guidance is not just a new talent to exploit as a Hindbrain plaything, sovereign executive functioning is the survival imperative of the human species.

Lie on your back on the grass with feet facing the sun. Drop the muscles at the back of the tongue, put on the inner smile and feel the air molecules hitting your nostrils as you take throaty breaths. Hold an imaginary spear with the right hand at your right hip (ileocecal valve) and the left hand at your left clavical above the heart. Turn your eyeballs up to the crown of your head and with your breath pull your energy up your body and out the top of your head. Infuse the meditation with your fearless heart energy, while feeling your body sinking into the ground beneath you. 

Take 3 slow deep breaths, making each breath out longer than the breath in before it. Then see and feel White Light coming down from above and entering your body through the top of your head filling every part of your body and mind. Fill any dark places and spaces within you with the White Light until your body and your mind are completely full and radiating with the White Light. See and feel it pouring forth from your solar plexus and your heart especially.

Compliance of the Compulsive Consumer and the Rectification of the Corpse Economy 

The Hindbrain commodified culture maintains its power abuses through ignorance and denial in the same way a drug addict is stuck in an uncontrollable repetitive habitual loop. Addiction thrives in an environment of reckless ignorance, indifference and denial, which masks unconscious shame and guilt. We seek stimulus for the dopamine high — regardless of how. Whether you are a Gambler, Alcoholic, Sex Addict, Shopaholic, or Workaholic — its all the same buzz. The dopamine addiction of power abuse and the craving to win also runs in cycles of accumulating triggers, which build the hunger (need, desire), instigating the crisis (the hit of power abuse), enjoying the high, coming down and feeling remorse, then shame and blame, and finally depression which sets the stage for the next cycle. The denial of addiction is an extreme form of normal repression that goes hand in hand with the defense mechanism of emotional repression that is held in place through addiction. Thus we repress the fact that we are repressing ourselves. Hence nescience becomes the "norm."

Emotional responses are largely generated unconsciously. Even when the amygdala (attraction vs. aversion) is activated by the cortical sensory systems, the processing occurs unconsciously. So if we are using our addictions to self-medicate our emotions and the processing of emotions largely occurs unconsciously, then both emotional self-knowledge and control over our addiction is inaccessible to conscious volition. Addiction is characterized by compulsive or uncontrollable drug craving, risk seeking, and abuse that persists even in the face of extremely negative consequences.

In the development of the sense-of-self the feedback mechanism that permits conscious awareness of emotional processes is accessed at the level of sovereignty…ie: individuation and spirituality. Whereas the Hivemind (the Borg) is basically the institutionalization of emotional repression for the short-term gain of maintaining the status quo of material resources and power. Thus values, norms, ideals and feelings substantialize or legitimize the particular framing of our social order and social control around addictive consumption practices. The fact that our addiction to the culture of self-repression functions at an unconscious level prevents the spiritual (prefrontal lobe) growth that would overcome the disenfranchisement. Hence nescience is an inverse self-fulfilling destiny of self-negation. That is we do not know what we do not know.

Embedded in a culture of self-repression, we fail to become privy to the activity occurring in unconscious processing systems, thus we have little awareness of our fallen condition and nor do we have access to the higher executive and spiritual capacities of the full HUman by which we could avoid the negative consequences of our collective unconsciousness and broken social systems. To be assimilated within the Hivemind of a broken human culture we have to suppress both our subconscious and superconscious minds, setting the little % of our conscious mind adrift in a turbulent sea of bad choices, with no rudder or sails. While we continue to self medicate with the stimulants, painkillers, distractions, biocides, dead foods, and toxic relationships that numb the trifling % of our conscious mind we have left, we submit to death by slow spiritual poison from the snake bite of a dying culture. The West certainly needs help individuating, but Eastern and Third World countries need even more help in transcending the brain-retarding cage of the Hivemind so the that full, whole or sovereign HUman can emerge without untold and endless suffering.

The sovereign individual must therefore come to “Know Thyself” and how the animal body is designed for the subterranean processing of unconscious emotional and visceral responses and behaviors. In particular the sovereign must Grok that addictions are unconsciously derived and that conscious control or willful choice has little utility in prevention or treatment. In order to unplug from the pathological grid of the death culture we must undertake a systematic reconstruction of the whole HUman from the soil up and resurrect the axis mundi to unite heaven and earth. If we fail in our task at redeeming the human species we will revert ever more to a society of hungry ghosts, who through pervasive trauma and neglect spread an epidemic of dopamine deficiency, deprivation and addiction down through countless eons of generations to come.

Hungry Ghosts have large, empty bellies and small mouths and can never get enough so they are always hungry and empty, always seeking satisfaction on the outside. Thus by defaulting on our HUmanness we breed a population of involuntary victims to the pushers of drugs, chemicals, cosmetics, brands, gadgets and all manner of idle consumerism. All because we reneged on compassionate care and refused to grow up and take responsibility for the precious gift of our own existence and the continuum of life. Compassion for ourselves supports our compassion for others. As we open to the truth within, we hold a safe place of healing for others.

If humanity dropped into the sleep of nescience many millennia ago then to awaken from the nightmare we must heal the self/world schism through increased sentience, expression, development and actualization. Liberation from the unconscious consumer culture requires self-actualization and spiritual maturation. Sovereign evolution demands that our focus has to shift from healing to wholing...from nurturing wounds, to supporting growth and development. Otherwise the epiphytic limbic brain fails to mature and gets caught up in a narcissistic vortex of self-absorbed scab picking. This paralyzing preoccupation is a type of existential post-traumatic stress disorder in which the greatest aspiration is to be an adult infant and to be "looked after" by the big daddy in the sky, by the state or some other parental figure.

Through what little volition we have left, and by our each of our life-positive actions, we are creating the transformational prism for the HUman of the future. We have no choice BUT to grow up…and in the end, that is our greatest pleasure. In truth, we have skills, gifts and divine capacity way beyond our wildest imaginations. We need to reboot the Matrix and reframe the human.

The awakening sovereign develops honesty around the deficent self and so develops “objective distance” from compulsively pursuing behaviors that have a negative impact on themselves or others. Spiritual awakening is no more and no less than a human being claiming his or her own full humanity.

“Withdraw allegiance from the old categories of the Negative (law, limit, castration, lack, lacuna), which the Western thought has so long held sacred as a form of power and an access to reality. Prefer what is positive and multiple, difference over uniformity, flows over unities, mobile arrangements over systems. Believe that what is productive is not sedentary but nomadic.” – Michel Foucault

Force of Habit Vs. The Law of Sufficiency

 To avoid creating a reality that is paradoxical or contrary to our desires, we must first vibrate in the frequency of “fullness” around the object of desire and understand the nature of predisposition to e-motivation. The Borg state is held transfixed in the holding patterns of our physical matrix. Our own aggression makes us bored, down-trodden, defensive, worried, depressed and fearful. Holding patterns in people that have been abused, shamed, used, exploited and traumatized produce the Force of Habit we see in and around us as the Borg trance. It is though most people are asleep and simply carrying out learned behaviors in an effort to get basic needs met… what Maslow called deficiency needs: esteem, friendship and love, security, power/status and physical needs. Poverty, Maslow argues, may result from any one of these needs being frustrated, denied or unfulfilled.

Poverty is ultimately a failure of imagination (spiritual illumination) and diminished creative self-sufficiency caused by the Force of Habit of the Borg trance. If we rashly react to the world as it habits itself around us, easily triggered by attraction and aversion, then we are still in the condition of accumulating karmic sewage. That is we are at the mercy of conditions rather than transcendent of conditions. In a presovereign culture we can expect to experience most people we meet to be operating in reflex from their deficiency needs and their psychosomatic armor. If we relate to them in kind then we blindly succomb to the Force of Habit and are under the sway of the rules and expectations of the Borg. The poverty, deprivation and karmic sewage of Hindbrain dominance keeps us locked in an innocent prisoner's dilemma unable to grow beyond our own reactivity, despite all our good intentions, higher ideals and spontaneous pre-reflective self-consciousness.

Our own aggression prevents the realization of ourselves as a free conscious entity by undermining transcendence, and manifesting a partial actualization despite our intellectual attempts and lofty ideals. Faith is belief, and the coward unable to open his heart to transcendence can fall into bad faith through the false promise that "he is courageous" as an everpresent truth, when in reality it is still a mere possibility. When we realize that our belief in something produces a self-contradictory concurrent knowledge of doubt or non-belief, we establish a truly free or transcendent will. We thus develop a pure and prudent heart and become fearless because we know our courage must be exercised on the battlefield in order to be Real-ized as empirical sensible action in time (factum phänomenon). Transcendence is not denial, justification, righteousness or immunity, so much as it is the strength of the heart proven by the hard won test of Reality. The ability to overcome our own aggression through heart intelligence is necessary to “transcend” against threatened attacks, interference, usurpations, limits, trespass and mischief, thereby effecting a practical morality in the causal world. The fixity of the Borg trance is unraveled by the power of the heart.

To gain lift off speed from pathological power and benumbed deprivation we must flood an abundance of spiritual illumination through every cell and have the imagination to be patient and beneficent with those still struggling inside the Matrix of the Force of Habit. Then to become everything that we are capable of becoming we focus on our higher needs for strength, competence, mastery, self-confidence, independence and freedom. Raising our energy frequency beyond reactive mind towards creative imagination constitutes the beginning of the spiritual life.

Poverty mentality or scarcity is the delusion of the spiritually lazy, born from a Hindbrain view of existence. Because the competitive, seductive, manipulative and threatening tactics of the trance of the Borg brain damages both perpetrator and victim alike, the fullness and the optimal frequency of wholebrain functioning is disintegrated and dismembered. Thus if you live in a Hindbrain society you end up doing everyone else’s spiritual "work" for them and still end up getting screwed. Unless a both parties of a relationship (or a sangha) are "sovereign informed" and working towards soul exploration and Muse expression...then the Hindbrain machinations of the Borg will always put a lid on growth. Hence relationships in conventional society are invariably partial, temporary and terminal.

Love ignites being to its “depth” potential. We see therefore, the need to find others with a similar passion for depth, and to join up with sovereigns around the globe to ultimately create a new society that is not toxic to humanization and the evolution of consciousness. The worst thing a sovereign can do is to "marry" themselves to others that are spiritual dwarfs, due to their being too comfortable within the steamy delinquency, primitivism and animalism of the Borg. Spiritual dwarfism is the norm in a dog-eat-dog world, where competition is rewarded and common human decency is scorned.

The reason for our very existence is grow spiritually in love, for without love we are nothing. To love everyone as ourselves, we must love ourselves else our love for others is based on our neediness. By conquering selfishness (love only for self), we can grow, change, grok and radiate love, and so be one with the Whole. One simple act of unselfish love has a geometric ripple effect in time and space.

We can rely on the fact that the toxic Borg society is crumbling under its own weight. But that doesn't mean we have to submit to being dispossessed wasterells lamenting over civilizations lost. The more disenchanted we are with The Given, the faster the path to The Made world arises out of the duststorm of the collapse. The Golden Rule is the governing principle of spiritual maturity. What we GET is what we ARE. We must reclaim and resurrect all words, emotions and functions, for our understanding of all things at the Hindbrain level is fallen and partial compared to the same words, emotions and functions grokked at the sovereign-mystic level. When we "teach" as a sovereign, we help bring the other to their own realization. When we "heal" at the sovereign level, we merely bring other to the activation of their own inner healing. When we "love" as a mystic, we provoke the resonance of love in Other.

Even our understanding of POWER is subject to shallow and deep interpretation depending on which part of the brain is dominant. Arrogance and ignorance breed spiritual bankruptcy and voluntary disenfranchisement, dependency and the Nanny State. It is no surprise that when a country degenerates into imperialism its citizens devolve into a state of collective learned helplessness…for fascism requires the relinquishment of that which makes us noble and human. A population once reverted to survival mode loses the magic, resourcefulness and empowerment of the prefrontal thrival mode. Every single Jedi, including Obi-Wan Kenobi, is an enemy of the Republic, however, Obi-Wan says that the Jedi seek power just as much as the darkside (the Republic, the Galactic Empire) do, but their search is for a different type of power…The Force. That is not power-over, but power-with. The former suppresses what is, and the later reveals what is through meta-vision.

Ruthlessness is a sign of the broken compartmentalized human. Spiritual dwarfism is basically the heartless, survivalist HIndbrain run riot and suppressing all other functions. The presovereign culture is not sustainable because it is eating itself and nature at a geometrically accelerating rate. The more it realizes it is failing, the more cutthroat, dog-eat-dog and feral it gets. It takes a spiritual awakening, with multiple kundalini initiations, detoxification, remorsefulness and rehumanizing practices to salvage our human dignity from the malevolent grip of the brutal, cold-blooded, barbarous deprivation consciousness. The presovereign culture of the broken compartmentalized human is not sustainable, thus there is no alternative but to rectify our relationship to the cosmos and become sovereign.

Deprivation consciousness, and the desire for money as security and power is the root of poverty consciousness, which can never be satisfied and satiated by money, security and power. Poverty consciousness breeds only poverty consciousness. Abundance consciousness creates from an always already fullness and so every decision is satiated with satisfaction and gratitude. Revealing What Is, is the way of the sovereign. Actually arriving on the planet is a good thing, despite our tendency to second guess our existence. Revealing What Is, is the way of the sovereign (or the Jedi). The self-preservation mechanism wants to fight and kill the oppressor with every fiber of your being. Thus you have to let the winds of opposition and resistance play through you like the band The Muse dose. Just don't get stuck in rebellion, but slide quickly over to celebration, for only that builds cerebralization. It is like a song...Introduction, conflict, denouement, resolution. In the expression of your truth you will always want to get your revenge, so you must turn that revenge to the becoming a creative vehicle for spirit. It is the only way to redeem the dark and turn it into the light.

"When an inner situation is not made conscious it appears outside of you as fate." Carl Jung.

Here Jung is referring to the "fateful" nature of reality when we are not a proactively conscious sovereign. On the one hand there is the "isms" and archetypes (gender, age, appearance, race, country, class) that form the structural foundations of our life arena and soul story. If we are not consciously employed and engaged in our own life, then we drift along under-employed by outside circumstances and determined by the "isms" and archetypes that predispose our life myth. Stress occurs when we are not "present" for if we were consciously engaged there would be no fear because life comes up to meet us. Stress, fear and resistance is a sign that we lack the realistic perspective of responsibility for our circumstances. If we stand in stillness without attachment and aversion to our apparent reality our "subjectivity" shifts more towards "objectivity," by which we have the leverage to attain conscious self-determinancy. Our life-purpose is not married to the divine, nor grounded in reality, unless we are actively engaged in the soul’s life and not merely a reactive victim of the winds of happenstance.

Strategy, perspective and objectivity are needed in order to deal with the primitivism of those who are not prefrontally initiated or sovereignty informed. Enormous patience and love is needed for a sovereign to thrive in the Borg world, especially because when presovereigns find out you cannot be manipulated and seduced by their Hindbrain tactics, they will up their game to try and get on top. There game however is strategically Hindbrain and so it is largely predictable, observable and gross (not subtle).

It is pointless being invested in climbing the success ladder in an obsolete civilization...for ultimately the ladder is not going anywhere. However we can be fully engaged in the presovereign world as-it-is if we are acting as a composter, recycler and transmuter of the old world and a gardener, designer and builder of the new culture. That is, by becoming a culture maker and working on societal renewal we automatically rise beyond the state of the passive victim of the errant cultural steamroller. Thus we must constantly be engaged in renewing our own lives, for culture begins at home as we transform the world from within. The winds of happenstance are not arbitrary or ambiguous, we just have to learn to sail them with a PURE HEART and thus claim the determination of our own fate and navigate a sovereign course of action without compulsion.

By being on purpose with free will and freedom, untainted by our negative reaction to the minds and wills of others we are sovereign and we are Whole…and our lives make sense!
