I Already Tuned In, Turned On And Dropped Out

I was 17 in the "Summer of Love" in 1967 when the counterculture phrase, "Tune in, turn on and drop out" popularized by Timothy Leary in 1966, was again uttered by Leary as he spoke to 30,000 hippies at the Human Be-in in Golden State Park in San Francisco. This phrase became a mantra for the baby boom generation that we heeded in some way or another at the time. Imagine 76 million people tuning in, turning on and dropping out at the same time. We did. I also saw the original Broadway production of "Hair" in 1969 that spoke as THE anthem for the hippie generation that came out of the cultural revolution of the time.

I recently saw a professional production of "Hair" and was reminded that I had already tuned in, turned on and dropped out and watching the 20 somethings recreate this famous theatre piece brought me back to the true meaning of the famous counterculture mantra.

For me, tuning in, turning on and dropping out was a serious proposition because it meant looking beneath the surface of the cultural realities of the time. It meant looking within to find your own deeper meanings of truth that you perceived by going beneath the surface of society. Was all the conditioning, thoughts, ideas and belief systems that I had been inculcated with really valid for me? What did I really think? What was really in my soul, in my heart? This moment of taking a step back and looking deeper was a defining moment for a generation and it put me on a path of finding out the deeper realities that were not being told or revealed by popular culture.

I have been living the realities of life beneath the surface for many years and seeing young actors recreate a show like "Hair" left me wondering what their inner experience was because, for me, it's important to be real since we as a culture are once again going through a revolution in which we are moving beyond old energy constructs like war, hate, intolerance, judgement, control, approval,  greed, killing, fear and anger. This moving into the new energies of Love is what the true meaning of "tuning in, turning on and dropping out" is all about.

You Are Immortal

From my experience as a continuum of soul, I know that I am immortal. So are all souls. There is no death. That means you! The avatar, the persona, the person, the human I embrace in each lifetime lasts only for a flash and I come to know mortality as a continuum as well and my awareness sees that, in addition to the experience in human or any other format being about a particular life and I've had millions of them, it's also about ALL of my lives in physical format. All of my physical lives is my life. See what I mean?

All of my physical lives is my life (singular) and that reflects the immortality of my soul AND my physicality. This is a very deep and important point. Both my soul and my physical component are immortal, not, perhaps in the same body but, yes, with the same soul that brings with it all that I am including all my talents, abilities, awarenesses, understandings, powers, etc.

When I embrace my physicality, I know what that human, that physical being is capable of and that's why I choose him or her. My soul makes that choice every time it is "born" into a physical format. It is not a throw-a-way to take on human form. It always, always has meaning and importance.

It is the consciousness of my immortal presence that is the important key here. When I live in physical form with the consciousness of my immortality, I remember why I chose this specific persona for this particular sojourn on Earth. I wake up to why I am here and I conduct myself accordingly. I remember what I have to do here. That way, I make my life count, I give my life meaning, purpose. I know my mission.

You too are immortal. It is time to become aware of this in yourself because it's who you truly are. This is not mission impossible!!!

You Don't Have To Die To Go To Heaven

Our human species keeps asking the perennial questions, "Where is Heaven" and "How do I get there"? Heaven seems to be a place where many people want to go and they believe they go there after death if they have been good while on Earth. I am convinced that Heaven is not a place, you don't get there by doing anything AND you don't have to die to arrive there.

Let me explain. I have become aware of Cosmic Laws. These are ineffable ways or operating procedures of the Cosmos that operate on everyone and everything. The Cosmic Law that pertains to the consideration of our understanding of Heaven is "As above, so below. As below, so above." What this Cosmic Law posits is that the Earthly life and Heavenly life are reflections of each other. The way it is in Heaven is the way it is on Earth with the opposite also being true. In my perception of this Law, Heaven is a human being's connectedness to Spirit and the Earthly life mirrors the nature of this spiritual connectedness and vice versa.

Heaven and Hell are your consciousness level. If you are disconnected from Spirit while alive on Earth, in separation consciousness, that is Hell. If you are one with Spirit, you are in Heaven. Heaven and Hell are not places as humans understand them. They are consciousness constructs that we feel, we experience as a "place" and whether we are dead or alive, we can experience Heaven and Hell because our consciousness doesn't die.

Whatever has been our consciousness on Earth, whether we've been connected or disconnected from Spirit, continues after our Earth experience and this is where, I believe, this mistaken notion of needing to die to go to Heaven or Hell comes from.

So, in my paradigm, if you want to go to Heaven right now, you needn't die. You just have to connect with Spirit or you can call it the Heavenly Father, God, The Universe, The Creator, etc. Connecting  to the spiritual force puts you into Heaven right here, right now or your disconnection puts you into Hell. It is a being something. If you want to be in Heaven, be Spirit. You are being spiritual or you are being hellishly soulless. You have a choice, you know.

As above so below. As below, so above.
