Do We Dare Keep Our Hearts Open?


by Zen Gardner

Funny how things evolve in the pursuit of truth. We’re emotional beings. That’s why the matrix makes everything out to be so cold and scientific.

When I watch certain movies or musical presentations or see a touching human moment I get emotional. I can’t help it. People are emotional, I’m emotional, and I feel them.

When we stop feeling we’re through. Empathy is what separates us from the reptilian mindset that is destroying humanity and our planetary home. We must never be like them, consciously or subconsciously.

Why Feelings?

Like you, I’m just observing and empathetic. It often hurts but it feels good at the same time. It’s the stuff that life is made of and we need to feel alive and not be ashamed of it.

We just need to connect. It’s fundamental. I don’t listen to a lot of music as it affects me so strongly. Especially unknown tunes, I don’t trust them. Same with movies, I don’t like to be overwhelmed or taken places without my permission or knowing the purpose. But, like you, I still do at times. And sometimes it’s a great experience, or at the least a good learning one.

Way more important is the drama of life itself and what is playing out in the world around us. How do we react, or should I say handle our reactions? Do we agree to shut down our empathy for those who are suffering or in need? Do we just stand idly by and suppress the natural outrage that tries to surface when we see cruelty and injustice all around us?

Are those kinds of feelings prompts from our consciousness that need heeding and expressing instead of suppressing?

I think we all know the answer to that.

Keeping Our Lights Burning and Chins Up, In Spite of the Outlook

There are a lot of choices each of us make everyday, like our diets and other “habits” and their eventual consequences. The bigger challenge is our thoughts, emotions and resultant actions. And in the world we live today, a lot of very unsavory news is coming at us all the time and it takes its toll. It can get us down and discouraged if we’re not careful.

The good news is we’re always potentially in control and can take the reins any time we see fit. We just have to raise our consciousness levels and respond accordingly.

I know, easy to say. But it’s true.

When I look at the horrific effects of DU (depleted uranium) on the children in Iraq and Palestine (and I make myself look…we need to see it for what it is) and the white phosphorus dumps on innocent Palestinians, or the long term Dow and Monsanto chemical warfare deformities of the violently assaulted Vietnamese population, or see another autistic child knowing it was induced by vaccines, my heart goes into overload.

You don’t want this reality in your world.

The rows of coffins (many lined with or simply carrying drugs from Afghanistan, don’t be fooled) of sacrificed American young men and women returning from an engineered deliberately unwinnable war arena makes me nauseous as well.

Then you get into chemtrails, GMOs, Fukushima and the rest, never mind things like mind control and ritual abuse, and you can really lose it.

But I’m not going to close my heart. In fact, I need to do the opposite.

There’s strength in empathy.

The Agenda is to Desensitize

Feelings are powerful motivators. They’re also transmitters. We can’t afford to shut down, no matter what the barrage of degrading information the PTBs throw at us. That’s why information and knowledge are so important. When you understand the “who, what, how and why” it’s happening you can intelligently distance yourself from the wrong type of impact and maintain your conscious awareness.

But it’s OK to let it hit home. It is grievous, and that’s part of our experience here. We also know there’s much more beyond all this that keeps us bouyant.

They say many nurses become callous having seen so much suffering. They no longer feel as they once did, they think they can’t afford to. I don’t know, it wouldn’t be easy seeing that kind of suffering day after day. But getting hardened is another thing.

Much of the World is Traumatized

Remember that whole countries live in that condition of seeing suffering constantly. How would you like to be an Afghani, an Iraqi or a Libyan, watching your people be slaughtered and the world around you trashed by people saying they’re saving you? How would you like to live in Iran or Syria knowing you’d done nothing wrong and the bullies of the world were spreading lies about you and threatening to invade and destroy your nation and possibly your family?

Meanwhile the terrorist charade continues its march subduing whole populations through media fear campaigns and staged terror events. Even those not at war are suddenly also in the arena with phantom terrorist bogeymen around every corner to justify fascist clampdowns.

The reality is the bad guys are the ones pointing the finger at the innocent whom they want to rule. At home and abroad. A total and complete lie and reversal of what the world is being told.

We Cannot Succumb

We have to keep our loving touch. We have to keep our sense of humor. We have to keep our sanity in this wicked, insane environment.

While all reason has been turned on its head to give us this Orwellian nightmare, we cannot succumb to their barrage of twisted lies, inferences, intimidations and tricky false assumptions and deductions. We must stay alive and awake.

We cannot sleep like the masses who’ve refused to see the painful truth. Ours is to see, feel, express and empathize.

True consciousness cannot do otherwise.

And wise, loving actions that make a difference will naturally follow.

Keep on daring to love.

Much love, Zen

  1. Great post Zen. Absolutely right on!

    I feel the need to know the truth. It’s like the Matrix movie, talking about looking down the rabbit hole.
    How bad is it? Terribly bad everywhere. Much, much worse than most people know.

    Jesus said it best “I have overcome the world”. Spiritually, I feel this is what ascension is all about.
    To know the world for what it really is allows us to ascend our consiousness to a place where there is heightened levels of compassion. It helps us to be grateful for even the smaller joys of life. (like picking up dog poop because when I do it, I always have to wonder why I’m considered the Master and she is the dog – somehow this seems backward – and then I smile because I love her).

    It’s humanity – good and bad. Duality is being human. The good and the bad both help us to seek God but the bad helps us more it seems. Love thy neighbor as thyself. Love God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength.

    Zen – the emotional side of you is the one filled with the most beauty. Remember, while you’re loving God and your neighbors, don’t forget to love YOU. You are worth it.


    • Tx Jeff for the good vibes…we all need to keep the love and compassion flowing, tough times ahead and lots to bring along! Much love, Zen

  2. Do we dare keep our hearts open?
    Damn right we do!

    Want to know how to be strong spiritually, physically and mentally? I watch and listen to this a lot. (Great 20 second guitar solo at 1:28 mark, great drums, just really great overall) Very inspirational.


    In the matrix movie:
    Remember when Neo asked Morpheus – You mean when I’m ready, I’ll be able to dodge bullets?
    Morpheus’ answer – No. I’m saying, when you’re ready, you won’t have to.

    This is where we all are headed. When they come for us, we’ll be ready. They had better be very afraid because stronger energies are hitting us all the time. They’re day will come – real soon. When they come for me, they had better be ready because I will be!


  3. I believe that the Christian writings portend the stratagem you’re describing in this way, ” Because wickedness abounds, the love of many will wax cold”.

    You surely have spoken well on a subject that all conscionable beings have struggled with of late.

    It’s as if those malignant forces have conspired against love and compassion. Be it with malice of fore-thought, or an unintended consequence of the prevailing agenda, I tend to feel it’s the former.

    “That disciple of the noble ones — thus devoid of covetousness, devoid of ill will, unbewildered, alert, mindful — keeps pervading the first direction with an awareness imbued with compassion… appreciation… equanimity, likewise the second, likewise the third, likewise the fourth. Thus above, below, & all around, everywhere, in its entirety, he keeps pervading the all-encompassing cosmos with an awareness imbued with equanimity — abundant, expansive, immeasurable, without hostility, without ill will. Just as a strong conch-trumpet blower can notify the four directions without any difficulty, in the same way, when the awareness-release through equanimity is thus developed, thus pursued, any deed done to a limited extent no longer remains there, no longer stays there.”


    • “True consciousness cannot do otherwise. And wise, loving actions that make a difference will naturally follow.”

      Yes they will Zen; and, they will speak truth, to power.

      In the realm of contrasts, we dare not fight fire with fire.

      Loving actions, unrecognized superficially, have a tremendous influence, in what we perceive as our own insignificant and limited sphere.

      They display a viable alternative to the prevailing and confounding status-quo.

      They truly are a light shining in darkness.
      They speak truth, to power!

  4. Always listen & follow your heart we are all connected in the fields. The key to awakening such an awesome power is that have to make a small shift in the way we see ourselves in the universe. We must see ourselves as a part of everything, rather than separate from everything. Beyond merely thinking of ourselves from this unified view, we must feel ourselves as part of all that we experience. With this one little shift in perception we are given access to the most powerful force in the universe, and the key to address even the seemingly impossible situations in our lives.

    Heart Intelligence as follows – That’s what keeps us human…A candle will light up the darkness, and in a room of light, the darkness cannot get in.



    Always share Love, we are here to Love Ourselves and Love Others. Slow down and just breath into it…

    Judith is a great healer, lots to learn from her research:

    Think positive thoughts throughout the day to increase your personal energy.

    Encourage your deepest heart feelings.

    Reduce your stress.

    Focus on recognizing your heart’s intelligence and realize the importance of listening to it before making choices.

    Use meditation or calm, quiet moments to reflect on your heart’s intelligence and listen for intuitive thoughts.

    The Heart is the seat of our emotions listen to what it tells you.

    Sound for DNA repair:

    And we have to include Greg Braden Heart researcher. The Spontaneous Healing of Belief.



    The Heart Has Its Own “Brain” and Consciousness:

    Always follow your heart….NDE,,,so very beautiful:

  5. Great stuff, like usual…What gets my blood up is the murder by remote control, drones and when the evil does a secondary strike to murder the rescures, makes my head explode…Beyond evil!! I dont know where your located, but I find it hard to “keep the love” here in the southwest edge of los angeles county….No one gets it!! and they have no idea its even going on. Some times I wonder if Im just crazy and it isnt actually happening….How do you deal life, when you seem to be the only one that see’s the evil?? How do you find like minded “humans” in the city of lost souls, LA???

    • Hi ARF,

      There are probably more than you realise. (YOU are there…)

      I think it’s hard for anyone to find like-minded people living close by, and I think we should let go of the need to try. It can be frustrating to feel surrounded by people who don’t ‘get it’, but it is better for the spirit to simply observe it and not feel anxious about it.

      If everyone was to find a friend of like-mind, they would spend a lot of time with them, just ‘chewing the fat’, whereas ‘alone’ they can contribute to the whole. Distance is an illusion, anyway.

      Imagine if Zen spent his time down the pub discussing all he does with a like-minded friend – if he wasn’t writing at all. Imagine if nobody was ever online sharing their thoughts because they had a friend to do this with.

      Right now, I know how a person in LA feels. It’s good to know.

      We have also been programmed to believe that Alone is somehow weaker than NOT being alone. This is not true. There are advantages and disadvantages to everything. And Alone is only a state of mind anyway.

      Times are changing, and people linking up with like-minded people from all over the world is all part of it.

  6. Sometime I have a feeling my emotions are directly linked with something much bigger and powerful. My feeling is like direct though for this thing, it let it know what is going on, and when too much emotional out pour from many many souls makes it react and act….Like I am It’s witness(like all emotional people), feeding it with all it want to know or need to know…If we could see how an open book we are to IT, we are glowing with multiple colors!

    Yeh I agree that the AmericanNon-Jews are indeed American “GOYISHE KUP” or “STUPID CATTLE”!

    The Israeli Defense Firm That Tallies The Iowa Caucus
    By Christopher Bollyn

    The Iowa caucus is only a few days away and the nation’s attention will be directed to the results, which signify the beginning of the U.S. presidential race. But does anyone watch who tallies the results of the Iowa caucus?

    The Iowa caucus results were tallied in 2004 by a company that is headed by a man whose company was bought by Elron Electronics, the Israeli defense firm. I suspect that it will be the same this year. Don’t expect to see any grassroots political activists doing the tally in Iowa. The Israeli defense establishment takes care of that part of the American “democratic” election process.


    In the summer of 2004, I first learned that a foreign and out-of-state company using Interactive Voice Response (IVR) technology tallied the Iowa caucus results.

    The system used to tally the 2004 Iowa caucus results was provided by a company called Voxeo, which was apparently based in Orlando, Florida. (Yellow flag goes up in the mind of those familiar with Orlando and electronic vote fraud history. See Bollyn article on Wang below.)

  8. The one thing that i remember the most clearly over the past 39-40 years of my school days at Brandeis University in1970’s are my student adviser’s words that when he was growing up that his grand parents and parents used the term “‘goyishe kup,’” meaning that the “Non-Jews are Stupid”

    Later in life I learned that the exact translation of “GOYISHE KUP” means that the “Cattle are STUPID”..

    I remember him recalling whatt his father told him when he was growing up in Eastern Europe. One of them being that when his father was in high school he and a group of friends would skip school early on Fridays and go over to his friend’s father’s butcher shop. That they would buy at cost any cows , that had not been butchered by the end of the day on Friday before the begining of shabat . They would take the cow home and wash it and then the boys would procede to “beat the udders of the cows so that they would swell up and turn pink” so as to sell them to the “GOYISHE KUP” as milk producing cows.

    The part that I remember him asking me if the East Europeans are so naive, so gullible and so stupid to buy old “non milk producing cows” from a bunch of young Jewish Boys.

    So thinking of it now I agree with the Jewish saying that the “GOYISHE KUP” are indeed” Stupid” as they believe that a Bunch of Arab Muslim Kids who were not able to Fly a Cessna Airplane took it upon themselves to FLY a Boing Jumbo Jet outwitting the US Military and Civilian authorities. The “Jewish Lightning Insurance Scam” of the 1960’s is still alive and well has been put to good use by Larry Silverstein with the help of his sayanim jews made a financial killing in imploding wtc by putting 15 million down and comming out with 7 billion dollars for buidings that no one wanted to buy because it would have cost a billion dollars to remove the asbestos from. Then on top of that the people in America actually believe that they actually decide who is elected President or for that that actual VOTE is really counted and makes a difference in deciding who represents them in the White House and congress. http://www.bollyn.com/index.php

  9. Nice work, as always, Zen.
    Does anyone have a rough idea of the percentage of people who are at least somewhat awake to the big picture of what is going on… It would help to know what we are still up against.

    • James I have wondered the same thing, so I look at the “numbers” of stuff like how many people are voting in these prime-time singing/dancing contest shows, millions, same for numbers of sporting events-millions gearing up for fall football, stupid movie opening numbers-I place these millions in the snooze category. less than 2% of Americans own metals, less than 10 % hold passports, Alex Jones claims to have 10 million weekly visitors, maybe, i dont know, they would qualify as somewhat awake, but not necessarily spiritually awake. Go stand at the entrance of a walmart and people watch, say there are 300 people in the store, how many could find Iran on a map, hell, find Iowa on a map, how many could name the VP, know what gmo stands for? How many are at least 40 pounds overweight with a cart full of coke? Sadly, percentage-wise I think the number is small, that’s why “they” target the minds and consciousness of the awakened, “they” know one of us or ten of us, can heal oceans, spread light to millions, and despite small numbers “we” can bring them down, then go pick up our fallen family members(humanity).

      • tt–you reflect the sentiments of most people. I think we all need to remember, there’s lots more than just “Walmart people” out there, as sad as that demographic appears. Yes, people have been dumbed down and blinded, but I think people would be surprised how many are looking very carefully at what’s going on and are very concerned. They just have no recourse, and no voice to confirm what they’re seeing and feeling.

        We active ones may appear to be few but the PTBs are well aware of us and have no doubt figured that into the equation. What they don’t understand is how massive the tidal wave of Truth and conscious awareness is that we’re a small window to. They sense it and fear it while trying to play cool and look in control.

        Also, look at the strength, passion and alertness in the younger generation of the awakened–it’s thrilling–even down to the amazing feeling you get from pre-teens and small children a al indigo and crystal kids and who knows what else is arriving…which is why they’re shooting them up with vaccines and trying so desperately to corral and dumb them down.

        Look for that and I think you’ll be encouraged. Energy goes where attention flows..let’s magnify it as much as we can! It’s a fight for all of us. Much love, Zen

        • Zen, it is your job to be the optimist! I believe the tentacles have too tight a grip on the usa. It is very difficult for sensitive people not to be horrified by the murderous actions carried out in “our” name across the planet. We make the poisons, we make the bombs, we financially terrorize the world, we distribute the drugs and porn. Your fema region may be a bit more educated and enlightened than my fema region, but what I see is multi-generational destruction of people; their mind, their health, their ability to sort through the programming.
          When you can step outside the disney hologram and see our current reality it’s clear how coordinated “their” work has been.
          I think it will up to a handful of us to work on the mental/spiritual side to raise things up and on that count I am an optimistic Warrior-Goddess!!

          • Rt U R tt! It’s true it’s that bad, but there is this living element we must invest our intention in. And when you start to see it you’ll see it’s been hidden from us by this same damn dark spiritual cabal…and rt you are about the war!–working on something now, lessee…love you

          • I would like to add a thought to this conversation, please.

            I know that it will take an overwhelming incident to awake the masses. Even so, many will still be sleep walking; however, their sleepwalk will be redirected.

            I truly feel that the hubris of some cog in the globalist machine will cause (him) to miscalculate in a judgement call. It (he) will be found out; and it will cause such a disclosure and backlash that (he) the structure, and likely a roaring mouse of a country, and an entire ‘famlly’ of mankind will bear the vindication of the rest of their fellows.

            Following that, those cooperative sycophants who have groveled at the feet of the ‘criminal cabal’ will fare worse than those who collaborated with the enemy during previous overthrows of despotism.

            Cosmic poetic justice is, I believe, not very far off.

          • I like to think so too. They’re very likely to make big missteps, and with the awakening spreading like it is we could have some interesting exposures! Note how the two staged shootings didn’t do all that well…too much incriminating evidence circulated rt away for them to sustain the BS. Gr8 sign!!

    • James, Hi. Many years ago I asked one of my mentors the same question. His reply was “It is maintained at about one third of the planets population”. For all the reasons zen and others have cited, I gotta believe the percentage has to be more; now that we are at the evolutionary threshold. Then there is the whole matter of 144,000 lightworkers to consider as well,. Besides our numbers do grow exponentially, and we have all the loving, compassionate folks on our side so how can we loose?

  10. While completely unintended I have taught high school students for the last 18 years. They are very receptive to these truths. I thank God for the opportunity to present alternative thinking to their purview. Zen, you thoughts and efforts educate and enable me to continue. Thank you so much.

    • David – just curious: HOW did you teach high school students these truths and still keep your job? I can’t imagine anyone in the formal education system today teaching these truths and not getting fired in a heart beat, whether it be grade school, high school or university level.

  11. Wonderful! Thank you Zen!

    I try to avoid getting connected to low vibrational emotions and feelings. But I don’t look away. Try not to get sucked down by it but to counter or neutralize it by loving energies if it’s within my abilities.

    Shine on, brothers and sisters!
    Much Love!

  12. If we intend to make it to the new world we are creating, one can only get there with an open heart. This is why we must stay together and offer support to one another. It is painful, ‘ life ain’t easy ‘, but a closed heart is not living your life to the fullest and if you aren’t doing that then why are you here? You have to see the truth, weep when you must, scream if you have to, but for God’s sake keep going. The world needs everybody’s love to complete this shift. Stay open and keep on keeping on!! Blessings…Vis

  13. When I see the young people from Iran and Israel say no to war and killing, I am crying because they show the world a new way of living…..Thanks to you Zen, because you are here.

  14. A wonderful sentiment from Zen, yes, one which I thoroughly concur with, but I am extremely perplexed by the human ability to blind itself completely to the insane sadism of Jesus, who could teach that all who would not believe in him would be cast into eternal hell fire, Old Testament style, effectively by stating that he would not change or oppose the words of the Law or of the Prophets, who were white hot on this issue.

    Christianity has crippled people’s hearts, and it takes a little courage to look this issue straight in the face and recognize Christianity for what it truly is.

    Christianity is in fact a form of extremely violent and sadistic terrorism to bully people into supporting it, with the threat of eternal hell fire, a threat which I myself have personally received countless times from ‘well-meaning’ Christian evangelists of many denominations. Christianity promotes love-bombing within it’s own circles, thereby numbing and paralyzing the ability of people to see the insane consequences of past and current crusades which led to crusaders in Palestine wading knee deep in Muslim’s blood for instance.

    Comfortably conceited by delusions of their own spirituality, Christians instantly dismiss the issue of the pain of souls in different religions such as Buddhism that are condemned to eternal flames in unceasing agony. They themselves feel good with all the internal love-bombing and positive reinforcement techniques practiced on them by their preachers and peers, so Christianity must be good then, and nothing else is worth dwelling on even for a second. They might say: “I mean, if people want to ignore the offer of Love of God and be burned in agony for all eternity by God for refusing His love, then that is their own stupid fault isn’t it, right?” No need for a Christian to question whether what they believe in is really good at all there then, surely, they think.

    And that is the real tragedy, for all the millions who have been and will be slaughtered by Christian ‘soldiers’ . Thank goodness for the small concession that at least there is no real eternal hell fire; it is all a cruel fiction, but one which nonetheless drives millions to murderous insanity in this world, to produce very real mental and physical agony. If we can admit that truth, then we can also admit the further truth that the entire Abrahamic range of beliefs is also a useless fiction, one which does incredible harm rather than good.

    What is all the justification for all this terror and pain? The Christian will quickly reply, and inform you that Jesus says to forgive and to love your enemy. The truth is that that followers of the Christian ‘Jesus’ are on a hellish path, and are not going up in spiritual life, but down, no matter how much love-bombing they may experience within their own tightly-knit circles. It is also highly arguable that Jesus only came to save the lost children of Israel, and not the gentiles, and that false additions were added to the Bible at a later time to promote the politically useful fiction of a Jesus that had come to save the gentiles too.

    When we discuss keeping our hearts open, such a demonic creation as Jesus deserves no mention at all in relation to doing this, as by condemning those who will not follow him to unceasing screaming agony in the flames of hell for all eternity, Jesus is the most closed-hearted demon of all. To say Jesus loves is just like 1984 INGSOC Newspeak where ‘WAR IS PEACE’.

    If we want real spiritual love from God and to share it with others, then we must have an unambiguous belief. Such a love within genuine spiritual understanding in various non-Abrahamic religions holds that all souls are equal before God, in animals, birds, fish, insects and plants; such a love holds that they are all sentient as much as we are, that they are all eternal expansions of God, of exactly the same quality of the substance of God in their construct, albeit temporarily forgetful of their true eternal nature whilst they attempt to enjoy pleasure in this material dream of maya.

    • Mothman

      Valid questions you present and eloquent. Your statements touch on an understudy I’ve been involved in some years now. Raised in a Pentecostal church, I was taught that doctrine held the moral high ground. Fast forward and realize all major religions think they’ve got it right. Why all the confusion? Because it is intended. Purposefully done to keep us divided, and from my view, is working magnificently.

      I remember hearing an evangelist telling/instructing his listening audience to learn about how to deal with entering the zone of apologetics when doing their missionary work. The thrust of this philosophy is to explain away any logical questions that come up, and go to faith and belief to fortify the religious message.

      Some books that I’ve read and use as desk references in regards to truthful discussion pertaining to the very questions you’re asking are:
      The Grandest Deception / Dr. Jack Pruett
      Slave Species of god / Michael Tellinger
      Gods of Eden / William Bramley
      Gods of the New Millennium / Alan Alford

      http://www.bibliotecapleyades.net has an entire library to choose from and/or Los Annunaki.

      Hope this info is not redundant for you.

      • Hi Randall,

        It is kind of you to get back to me, and thank you for your insights. I have read that the Bibles are all different in different parts of the world, and this is true, as when relating Bible stuff to Czech and Polish friends, they had one or two different passages in their Bibles compared to texts in English Bibles, so that certain Bible facts were different in theirs, and that is rather strange, maybe that is something the controllers keep as a reserve just in case they need to cause conflicts between different Christian groups in the future.

        One Muslim sect killed 100 members of another Muslim sect in a war, just because one said Mohammed intended for the Muslims to wear just a beard and no mustache, whereas the other sect were sure that Mohammed was OK about Muslims wearing a beard AND a mustache. Big issues indeed to some, and even worth dying for.

        Wow, that is quite some list of books, and I have only read a very small number of them. For me though, I have kind of settled down, and have my spiritual senses kept open in a non-abusive way by a genuinely spiritual manifestation of Krishna. I keep in regular touch with Krishna through His murti form and through knowing Krishna as mantra and in inner conversation.

        I also communicate regularly with the Vaishnava gurus in Krishna Goloka, and see their faces and hear their conversation inwardly, so I have no doubt they care for me and that they are not trying to have me over for some evil purpose. And I don’t even need a degree in quantum physics or to possess a mobile to communicate all across those light years away. Nor does anyone else. That is something the atheistic materialist scientists will always be too arrogant and conceited to understand or acknowledge.

        For them, as long as they continue to hold their attitude that they wish to become supreme controller, Krishna will never exist for them in their conscious appreciation, though He is in truth present everywhere constantly. Krisha IS the very substance and medium of communication in all dimensions, so communication from hundreds of light years away is instantaneous. If you like, try contemplating pictures of Krishna whilst thinking about the meaning of His teachings, and the picture can become transcendentalized, far more than just a combination of mere material elements.

        Many of the writers we see today are merely lost in the dark, acting very brainy and speculating endlessly about what spirituality is and wondering still what might be a good way to approach it.

        I do think though that we must still ask what should spirituality be like? And no matter what people might say, that we have no right to have any opinion because God is so high and mighty, and if He says we are going to burn forever if we screw up then who are we to have any right to query anything. My considered opinion is that the entire Yahweh Abrahamic thing is a total fear-driven fraud and hoax.

        See what gives you a real connection. And you can look it in the eye if you want and think, hmm, that is one of them thar angels of the Devil clothed in light, because it is so nice. Anything THAT nice must be bad, one might think. It is a matter of discerning, and yes, unscrupulous beings on this plane and on the inner planes do pretend to be Krishna to try to milk you out of love; this is written of in the Vedic scriptures, and you have to be discerning and filter out the crooks, and some are extremely powerful with absolutely amazing siddhic abilities. Just ask continually for the real Lord of all the Gods to be with you are you can’t go wrong.

        Thanks again.

    • “albeit temporarily forgetful of their true eternal nature”

      Can you prove this “forgetfulness” on their part? Is this perhaps not an idea held over from some former ‘Christian’ conditioning? Think !

      • Hi Soni.

        If we were not forgetful of our true eternal nature, we would not have considered that we could come here and enjoy to the same degree as we already had all opportunity and facility to be doing in the spiritual world, where there is no pain from birth, death, old age and disease, from poverty or warfare, or from natural calamities such as droughts, earthquakes and hurricanes, or predation by dangerous wild animals, parasitic worms, and disease-carrying blood-sucking mosquitoes or poisonous snakes.

        Certainly, avatars can come here from the spiritual world, and they indeed, are not ‘temporarily forgetful of their true eternal nature’, like the liberated jiva devotee of Lord Krishna, Guru Nanak of the Sikhs, and Lord Krishna Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, a direct manifestation of God Himself, who appeared in the form of His own devotee in the manner of a teacher to encourage others to do likewise as He was doing, who both appeared in India about 500 years ago; both danced and chanted together and agreed that their faiths were essentially identical in love for Krishna as the Supreme Lord.

        Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati Goswami Thakur, who wrote an exquisite commentary and translation of the ancient Vedic scripture Sri Brahma Samhita, which describes perfectly some aspects of the nature of the spiritual world, was also considered to be an incarnation of a transcendentally-minded soul, who opted to come to this world to help to wake people up to their true eternal nature, and one of his sayings was “Jiva jago!” or “Wake up, don’t you know you are sleeping on the lap of the maya witch!”

        • My point was that you have no proof of animals forgetting their eternal nature.

          I personally do not ‘subscribe to “revealed religions”; that is to say, another’ s “say so”.

          • All that bitterness is no way to begin your spiritual enquiry. You can see perfectly well that I have stated that I actually experience the spiritual presence of Krishna and liberated residents of Vaikuntha, so by even the most elementary process of thought, you might well consider that knowledge of existence of Krishna and these liberated souls might also become perceptible to you too, without merely subscribing to someone else’s ‘say so’ that they exist. But you apparently know enough, very strangely, to subscribe to the inconceivably odd views of someone else, very similar to yourself.

            To attempt to participate in a conversation on whether or not to keep the heart open, whilst you appear to be on the verge of openly embracing the poisonous and hellish idea that some souls are eternally Satanic and irredeemably evil, is to decide to keep it eternally shut against many that you appear to be about to deem yourself capable of passing that most final of judgements against.

            All souls form part of a spiritual collective, and in fact indirectly constitute part of our own self-cognizance when joined in harmonized community by the nexus of the central Supersoul and Lord of all, Krishna. This does not contradict the fact that there are some exceptionally unpleasant people in various dimensions, that we would all rather were not intimate with us for a great many years, until such a time as they come to their spiritual senses and recommence to act in a pleasant and spiritually compassionate manner.

            How would the spiritual world treat you, if you were to begin to condemn many souls eternally in error? At least Krishna and the Vaishnavas are not as vindictive as you are possibly thinking of becoming with your potential new ‘guru’, who is also badly mistaken in his confabulated ideas.

            You need to do some thinking yourself instead of telling me to ‘think!’ in such a manner.

            To think of others as eternally evil is the beginning of a very severe mental and spiritual illness, and I would advise anyone not to consider pursuing such a bitter and fruitless path. Such an Abrahamic belief as that, that others outside the Jewish race for instance are Satanic and eternally evil and irredeemable, is the basis of the extermination policy of the Talmud and Torah, which sees all Gentile souls as non-living, and due only to be sent to hell under the Angel Duma after all Gentiles are exterminated from the Earth when the Jewish Messiah comes.

            If the Abrahamic religions were to be actually permitted to manifest in real substance the insanity of their eternal hells of burning flames, boiling water and boiling excrement, then these religions would all torture the adherents of the others for all eternity. That is not spiritually productive in the slightest, and is actually directly opposed to any real spiritual path.

            Other Abrahamic variations on this insanely conceited theme exist also, and when each of their insane so-called teachers starts telling their followers to regard the other’s followers as Satanic and irredeemably evil for all eternity, then the followers of each group will all create a very hellish situation for themselves by unjustly maintaining animosity towards the other groups, in an entirely unnatural situation that is completely outside and far beyond anything naturally due according the the laws of karma, for a very long time, until they come to their senses again.

            Certainly, you will be in very poor company any way you choose if you follow that path. If you are not Jewish, the edict in the Jewish scriptures is for all Gentiles to be killed, and their souls condemned to hell as Satanic and irredeemably evil for all eternity. Or you have the option of being outside the Jewish racial group, and doing exactly the same as the Jews intend to do, but to other groups, thereby wrongly condemning others within the Gentile and Jewish soul groups for all eternity.

            No souls are created by any Satan. There is no Satan. There are no specific species of Jewish, Gentile, Alien, Reptilian, Dog, Cat, or Satanic souls, only souls exist which are all exactly the same substance of the divine creator, and whether or not Archons exist is a matter of how big an imagination we have. I mention Archons merely in case you might have any Gnostic leanings.

            All beings without exception have a soul; even soulless robotic elemental beings are only puppets under influence to act as a result of the desires of their creators and maintainers, who themselves all have souls. Those souls without exception are capable of resuming their eternal constitutional position in the spiritual world upon surrendering their devotion and love to Krishna.

            If you were to become so frightened and paranoid that you need to feel the power-crazed ability to write others off for eternity, then your heart, being so brutal, could not be considered spiritually open in the first place, and you could not be considered to have sufficient spiritual intellect to open it as yet, so the question for you of whether or not to actually keep the heart open would be entirely irrelevant for you.

            Of course, you can decide to doubt everything as long as you wish, even the direct presence of God; that is your privilege.

        • Actually, the problem is not one of memory…not the memory we know or some other Atma-related memory. In fact, no Atma-related memory ever descends to reveal the soul’s various incarnations and what the evolutionary process could be. That our consciousness could have a perspective that is beyond the fabricated entity of MAYA, is doubtful. Maya is a mis-statement of the problem. The problem is the existence of a satanic entity in the body. This entity has 100% attention on the external world and the usage of that world to perpetuate its hold on the body….and the rulership of that specie on earth.

          The earth can be a beautiful place. satan made it a horror story. To denounce earth because it is MAYA is to talk stupidness. The ancient Hindus invented this enemy. Krishna never let the Pandavas forget who the enemy was….and so the war was fought. This is the case now too.

          You cannot accept that evil is a different specie which does not serve God. You will not accept that they have made this world a terrible place. In fact, you will probably say it is Kali Age and that God divinely ordained it. But, this is a scientific world. We can see visual evidence of who is doing what. The ancient hindus made their exploratory analyses that have proved wrong. We were given barren paradigms to follow.

          I call it like I see it. This is no divinely ordained movie or LEELA of God. Evil has not been cursed to be evil and forgetful of their original natures and so are just acting out a cosmic script.

          The ancients never woke up! The problem is not maya but the invisible entity within the body that chases consumption and pleasures, possessing people’s bodies, ruling the earth and generally being a predator. The ancients are wrong…if they ever said that about maya. They are wrong about all those Gods and Godesses existing. The whims fancies of long time gurus cannot stand the scrutiny of today’s data collection and analyses. We’ve been had! Religion is disinformation mostly…which is why those books see the light of day!

          • Many of the references you make, directly point to indoctrination by a “revealed religion”; which is, in the end, some one else’s “say so”.

            If I were to say, for example, that a herd of 154 cows all sitting placidly in the afternoon sun, are contemplating their eternal nature; then, there is none who could “prove” me wrong.

            They may not believe it, (and usually due to some associated idea gleaned from a “revealed religion”); but, they could not ‘prove’ that it was not so.

            If I were to come to your home and turn on the light for you every day, would I then be your servant, or your master?

            Again, if I were to come to your home, and water your garden when ever it was necessary, then, would I be your servant, or your master?

            Yet, man has worshiped those same activities in the heavens.

            Observation though, declares emphatically; that, all those powers in the heavens serve the earth.


    • Jesus could not have claimed that people would be cast into “eternal” hellfire, because there was no such thing. Those words translated “eternal” really should be translated something akin to “age-abiding”. Makes much more sense when you realise that :)

  15. Zen, love the article and that pic – of the 2 disabled runners – what’s the context of that pic? To me it looks like they were racing against each other (or on the same team as a relay?) and one of them fell and the other stopped to help him up. If that’s the case, that’s the stuff of life that will get humanity up and back on it’s feet (literally & figuratively!) !!

    • Hey Gus – From the pic their jerseys are different so it looks like they’re different teams, but I’m sure they’re friends as they share the same challenge and amazing will to overcome. I don’t know the details, but I do know many Africans have had limbs hacked off during these horrific wars there, often in childhood, the wars or massacres usually prompted by western imperialist interests. I actually put the picture of the poor boy what had his led blown off after I’d found the bottom pic to represent not giving up, and only realized how they followed when my dear wife was proofing the story. Universe really is amazing! Love, Zen

  16. You know Zen when I read about people taking upon themselves to kill, wound, mistreat people just for the sake of doing so as a means to gain what? Power? At the expense of human life! At the expense of someone’s well being? And let’s not forget the animals at the mercy of whatever human comes their way; from the cold blooded animal abuser to the inhuman slaughter houses, the animals suffer horrific fear and pain too. Witnessing all of this, it is hard to keep my heart open. Yet I have to. I need to keep love flowing for the sake of those men, women, children, animals that fall victims of evil abusers. If love stops flowing on this planet and all that is left are evil intentions and actions, no one of us will stand a chance. No one. The opposite of love is not hatred, it’s death. If we close our hearts, we might just as well go dig our own grave and lie in it.

  17. You seem in so many ways in the right spirit…. but I think if you can’t come out and condemn the evil forces which have wrought his suffering, if you can’t see that systemic oppression is the way of this universe, then you are missing the other half of the equation. Not the better half, but a necessary half. Evil exists and it isn’t going to “learn from the light” nor ever be “receptive to love” and we have no business empathizing with such evil, but condemning it in the strongest possible way short of abridging our own good natures in the process. Acknowledging the goodness of the good in spite of evil doesn’t fully express the situation we face. Acknowledging that evil must be finally destroyed is also required or one’ moral development is stillborn.

    • You are right! Evil is the enemy pretending to be the schoolers of the good guys while in fact making them prisoners….and killing them. The world is in self-destruct mode because of them. They will pay for their crimes.

      They do their best to make believe that they work in concert with God, and that they are part of His plan. satan, they claim, fell from HEAVEN. What foolishness! satan could never be in heaven with the substance of his gross invisible self. The wise sayings aver…..Its better to light the light than curse the darkness! Heck, I will do both. They take punishment-avoidance further by making FORGIVENESS fashionable. God forgives because he can. Whether it is the purchase of Indulgences or doing public relations, forgiveness is just more foolish talk.

      You are correct too, about evil learning anything from us. They are a different species of invisible substance. They have an MO which is purely predatory. Of course, they can enact most kinds of behavior. Yet, they have no morality and their secret lives reveal this. Evil is merciless and ‘heartless’. The only way to relate to them is to fight them….no other way. You are just ‘prey’ for them. Presently, female predators run the base of the pyramid. Their favorite word….LOVE!

  18. The soul lives in the head, nestled in the ‘inner sanctum’. The soul is only the size of a thumb (Swami Sivananda). The soul relates to the world by using the brain and nervous system. Awareness thus becomes attention and is directed through the operation of the senses. Intuition is a sixth sense and connects soul to super-soul. All other senses are focused outwards into the material world.

    The dark side (or satan within) is a parasite which possesses the bodies that belongs to souls. The aim is to use those bodies for their pleasures, predatory agendas, their lifestyles and their kind. They intercept the soul’s ability to express in the material world by blockading the senses and controlling them. Of course, the dark side cannot blockade intuition and this faculty becomes the fortress of souls…. it is the only place of privacy in a body with a dark side lurking. Intuition hooks up with the Causal world of ideas….a world which the dark side cannot enter.

    The usurpation of the control of the senses by the dark side leads to use and abuse of the senses. The dark side is a different substance from soul and has its wishes and desires in its substance. It cannot use a brain and has no brain. It has the ability to record things or accept programming. The dark side can also generate all kinds of feelings, urges, moods, likes and dislikes etc which it uses to push past the soul in producing behavior. Most times, the soul cannot detect the treachery and accepts the argument, and desired course of behavior, of the dark side. The dark side is quick and its speed pre-empts the soul from having the time it needs to look or leap. The dark side is also insistent and powers up its ‘urges’ so that it always gets its way. The dark side using its control of the flesh, actually physically moves the body to its desired behavior, giving the soul no chance to cancel the desired move. The proof of all this lies in changing how the senses operate. Try shutting down the senses, singly or otherwise. Try mouna or silence! Yoga is where you detect the dark side and weaken it.

    So, if the soul is in the head, why all this focus on the heart or blood-pump? Christopher Reeves, though paralysed from the neck down, still cared enough to try to help similar people. The dark side cannot displace the soul in its location in the head but instead fabricates its empire in the rest of the body. Typically, there are several dark sides in a body…working as one. The major dark side lives in the abdominal cavity. It is the Kundalini snake. Once the cells in the body have deteriorated enough, functionally, the meridian or pranic system weakens. The satan within now asserts its own energy system. ( The sex school is part of the satanic system we live. The cooked girls are prized because they are called ‘energies’. The cherries of powerful girls are most valuable. The GAME is about that. The girls power up the dark side in the predator-men). It moves up or down the body, through the organs and blood system. So, the dark side sees, tastes, speaks, hates, loves, is bored, is angry, sings, dances, has sex etc etc. It lives a life in the soul’s body but it is not a soul.

    Love (for the soul) is caring. It is compassion, understanding, altruism, empathy, patience etc. The soul has other qualities like knowledge and awareness. Souls like their awareness infused with clarity and uncluttered by too much earthly concerns and attention-grabbing. Detachment is natural but that is its inner nature and is not to be interpreted as hardened ‘hearts’.

    Souls are generally spontaneous in behavior, playing each ball on its merit. Programming of the soul is impossible and there is no repository of behavioral recipes in rote memory. Rote memory belongs to the dark side. The soul searches intuitively for the best response in every situation. There are recipes in its experience but none that is a panacea. Pick your fights….is advice that souls treasure. Frankly, souls are perplexed by the word ‘love’. They know caring, understanding and compassion.

    The word ‘heart’ too, perplexes the soul. Why should the blood-pump be so connected to feeling? Is it because ‘people’ like the way the dark side comes up to the chest region and generates warm sweet or other feelings depending on the scene before its eyes? TV movies does this to you. Sob stories, too. Bhajan singing does it too. Women can do this and generate tears in less than 10 seconds. Women love to hit the dark side in the body with all kinds of energies to create all kinds of results. This ranges from erections, to sweet feelings in the chest, to fear, to practically anything the dark side can experience. Women extract the dark side’s attention and play with them. They cannot do this to souls attention. Most people are dark side so it is not surprising that most of what we experience is a dark side civilisation.

    So this is not just a word thing. If this article is about caring for others in everyday life or in special current situations of adversity, say what, we need more of that. Anything other than that which deals with ‘heart’ and ‘love’ is merely spending more time under the thralldom of the dark side. Conquer the senses, experience the war, then tell me that it is not so!

    • I would very much enjoy reading more from you.
      Please post more at your blog, and link to it in your comments.
      Please upon up your blog for comments also, thanks!

      • Hi! I am planning to create a blog called Tipsonliving. Its my old blog title. I am in a little adversity right now. As soon as I solve some problems I will begin. I may have to get a good computer too. But, I will post as I can in a relevant kind of way! Thank You!

  19. Great article Zen! One of the ironies I have noticed is that those who are the most stoic and unemotional also happen to be those who have not questioned their early authority figures or much of anything else in their lifetimes. They have simply gone along with the program of whatever reality was presented to them and lived out their lives on automatic pilot ever since; believing only what their parents told them about the world.

    True adulthood represents a time when one broadens ones outlook into the wider world of others, who too might be nurturing their own narrow outlook based on race or creed or bloodline; whatever! One who feels sees the whole of humanity for what it is; a full range of beings, some of whom, (like you Zen), who have nurtured the quality of the loving heart; no matter what race they are born into; what creed they were handed.

    What ultimately matters to a civilization that survives for any length of time, is the ability to feel love for one another. The criteria for judging any of the messages received is to notice whether one learns to love or to hate.

    The only place I seem to encounter others expressing real outrage at the way this civilization is playing out on its trajectory to extinction, is YouTube and articles such as your’s.

    A very lonely existence it is for a feeling human being living among corporate zombies of all ilk, sent out to pit all against all so the ruling ones can gather up the spoils…

    • Well said Sara. We’re living in a particularly dark time and climate rt now. It makes people question whether their conscience is really telling them the truth, it’s so contrary and so not getting any affirmation, except from a very few. Hence the sense of loneliness and isolation. More on this coming out soon.
      Hang in there…keep the fire burning, you’re doing way more good than you’d ever think! Love, Zen

  20. Zen, beautiful message. We cannot close our hearts. If you close your heart you close both the outflow and the inflow. You cannot do one without doing the other. Keeping the heart open builds character, strength, courage, love. Yes love the most misunderstood and abused word on the planet. Love holds no boundaries, knows no differences, shines on all with the same intensity. We cannot afford to let that go dim.

  21. “And I lift my glass to the awful truth which you can’t reveal to the ears of youth, except to say it isn’t worth a dime.

    And the whole damn place goes crazy twice, once for the Devil and once for Christ but the boss don’t like these dizzy heights…we’re busted in the blinding light of closing time.”
    Leonard Cohen -‘closing time’
