Self Understanding, Philosophy, Consciousness, Meditation and Health

In the last two years, a lot has changed in my life. I don't feel that an annual update to the Self Understanding, Philosophy, Consciousness and Health post is going to cut it this year. Essentially this post is information that I think points to some consequential if not vital things. I used to email this to friends who are interested, now I just point them to the latest version of this post.

Most if not all of the books/authors mentioned are available in audio form. To 
great benefit some of the Seth books have been specially formatted for audio and are infinitely easier to grasp. I recommend to seek the audiobook first as most of the time they can be easier to digest. Nothing will replace real books, but I also have a nice collection of digital books, and they are a lot easier to search... 

Philosophy and Self Understanding

For me Alan Watts was the first and probably the best to shine some intellectual understanding on (my) western existence, our egos and our roles within society... Alan has set me on this amazing path of self discovery and I am forever grateful. After a few good years of Alan, Seth was possibly one of the first beings that actually (correctly) unbiasedly explains: life, death, the soul, consciousness and many other things. I strongly believe the Seth books are essential reading.
After rereading Seth and finally moving past the victim mindset that has plagued me for too many years. The universe (my partner Cima) reintroduced me to regular meditation practices. It took me almost a year to work up to meditating daily and it makes such a beneficial difference.

Ok, so enough about me, for someone who is seeking deeper understanding of our earthly existence; what we doing and why. Basically anyone who is trying to understand life on a more personal level; Your Soul's Plan by Robert Schwartz is a good if not the best place to start.

If the universe, it's creations and in depth explanation of the functionality of our and God's presence within it all, is what you are looking for, you are in luck as Guy Steven Needler has covered all this and tons more in The History of God.


The list below is in a rough influence or impact on my life order. In many ways Guy Steven Needler should have the top spot, but he is a relatively new edition and I am still exploring the body of his work. 

Seth

Unlikely that Seth has been the only hyper intelligence that has visited earth. Still I think that Seth's words/wisdom has already influenced humanity. Very powerful and illuminating, if not life changing!

I suggest to actually get the Seth books...

Alan Watts

Alan played and still plays a important part in my life. I think Alan is easier to relate to and understand in recordings of his live talks and presentations than in his writings.

Drunvalo Melchizedek

Drunvalo has written books and made videos about the earth's consciousness grids and their evolution/degradation. He has written about living in the heart and how to take meditation to higher levels. I suggest to watch the Birth of a New Humanity video first, I think it is wonderful and amazing - Drunvalo has done extraordinary services for humanity, earth and the universe.

Non-dualism

Honesty there are no words and should (can) never be a description or more to the point understanding of non-duality. For me non-duality is a sense of clarity without words, a short (1-2sec) thought-less realization  that there is no ‘separate self’ or ‘separate’ anything - everything is part of a oneness. Simply ‘all there is’, is an infinite eternal unknowable no-thing that is also everything. I consider that non-duality or radical-non-duality was a trigger to my deeper awakening. But as said, writing, talking or thinking about (radical) non-duality can be (is) pointless. But there is a wonderful "All There Is, Is This" post by Dave Pollard, that I think is well worth reading. And always there are Tony Parson, Jim Newman and a few others radical nonduality personalities and they are 'apparently' all worth investigating.

Dolores Cannon

I think Dolores was the first person to take past life regression into a totally new area. But how the information comes is probably not so important. Dolores has written a lot of books, I highly recommend starting with The Custodians and then moving onto The Convoluted Universe 1. It is impossible to sum up theses two books; but most (not all) of it is essential information for our continued existence and humanities growth.

Guy Steven Needler

I find it hard to believe that this essential and important information is widely available - it's a miracle. The History of God is not a hard book to read or understand. But at this time it is not for everyone. It should be for everyone as it truly explains the structure, creation and functionality of our and all other universes, dimensions and realms of existence.

History of God - The More Show Interview

Robert Schwartz

Robert has written books about souls planing before birth. I believe it is essential reading for anyone seeking understanding of life on earth.
In the interview video link, Robert explains a lot, it is probably a good place to start. I will say that Robert's books are not exactly easy reading or well structured and unfortunately exclusively focus on horrific and negative aspect of life. So, be warned this can be a somewhat dark read, as the author mainly focuses on sad if not horrific events. If you squint (a lot), you can see positivity. I just feel happy life events could have been also investigated. But all that aside the books do illuminate the subject of a person's and their soul deeper purpose on earth.

Ken Wilber

A philosopher and mystic who attempted (multiple times) to combine all fields of study into a singular framework of understanding. There are so many aspects to Ken Wilbers work that just explaining them warrants a book in itself. The Rise And Fall of Ken Wilber article by the wonderful Mark Manson is a good point of reference.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ken_Wilber

This is the best quantification of enlightenment I have ever heard (thank you Ken):

Dr. Joe Dispenza

Joe scientifically explains a lot of important and interesting things. In comparison the the others in this list, Joe is a relatively new discovery. Joe is still very active and is actively searching and helping to raise the human consciousness, understanding and vibration. It may be futile or imaporirate to sum up Dr. Joe Dispenza's work to law of attraction science, but essentially in a large part, that is what it is. 
http://www.drjoedispenza.com/

I think this is a good interview that shows what Dr. Joe Dispenza is all about

Terence McKenna

Terence was a futurist and explained a lot of important and interesting things. Thanks to my friend Nuwan for pointing out Psychedelic Salon to me, where many of Terence's talks and presnatation can be listend to https://psychedelicsalon.com/category/people/terence-mckenna/I have always enjoyed Terence's humor, he holds a special place in my mind and heart.

Wayne Dyer

A self-development celebrary, but still Wishes Fulfilled is a wonderful personal account of a spiritual journey of self development, that we can learn from and connected with. It is a perfect getaway for anyone who only wants a small sample of the greater understanding.
https://www.drwaynedyer.com/ 

Meditation

I started meditation when I was about 20, also did yoga and then life got busy and somehow I abandoned meditation. Not totally, as I still meditated from time to time. Only now I realize how close I was then to experiencing (true) meditation. Not sure why, but probably for simplification, we tend to call 'meditation' the act of being still or preparing (breathing...) for doing meditation. Meditation is a state of mind not an act; doing something/anything is not meditating... Maybe one day I will write about meditation, but this here is more a hint into a few directions. Needless to say there are and have been for thousands of years wonderful meditation guides...

Hemi Sync possibly the easiest and quickest way to get into deep meditation states. I do not know of a quicker way to (trully) meditate. As Hemi Sync has been around for a long time, there is an avalanche of resources. I suggest to start with the Gateway Experience - Wave 1.
I recommend watching the 
little documentary explaining the technology and principles behind Hemi Sync.
Robert A. Monroe (Hemi Sync inventor) on Exploring Expanded Consciousness:
https://youtu.be/-GxiUgkuPlo      
  

Another thing I like to suggest is that Chakra/Energy Balancing is important if not necessary for (all) meditational practices. Again there is an avalanche of resources. I personally suggest to start with guided meditation. I listen to Clearing Chakras to Awaken or Sleep by the wonderful Fred Haas almost every morning. It can be downloaded from:   
https://www.guidedlifestyle.com/meditations (scroll down). As I listen to it only in the morning, I edited an shorter (better) awake only version (happy to share, if you interested).               

Health and Diet

Possibly the healthiest thing we can do is to eat one pawpaw or papaya (same thing) a week and stop eating from time to time; fasting is extremely beneficial. The 16:8 fasting is quite easy - 16 hours of not eating 8 of eating (2 meals). But it can be more complicated, but 16:8 is a good starting point. Here are a few links to information that I find beneficial, if not life saving.

https://youtu.be/ZY0_GoROp6I 

Dr. Terry Wahls

Interesting and important researcher and pioneer of functional medicine.
http://terrywahls.com/
Her presentation is probably the best place to start
https://youtu.be/lJT4gRUlpkc

Dr. Steven Gundry

Has an good understanding of diet and I recommend his book The Plant Paradox. It looks like the whole thing exploded into a slew of products based on the polyphenol diet/digestion philosophy. When I had digestive problems I did use two of the products and found them beneficial. But in all honesty if you regularly balancing your energy chakras, watch what you eat and fast from time to time. You probably only need the The Plant Paradox book, even if only as interesting new things to understand about the digestive system.    
I think the intro to his book is a good place to start

Don Tolman

Don is amazing but he gets some things wrong, but still very worthwhile. If interested I suggest to get his books and maybe some of the products. I strongly suggest to never go to any of his or related live (salesfest) presentations/seminars!

Self Understanding, Philosophy, Consciousness and Health (update)

Here are links and basic information that I think points to some consequential if not vital things. I normally email this to friends that are interested. Decided to make a blog post, now I just point friends to this post. I update and repost this list about once a year. 

Philosophy and Self Understanding

For me Alan Watts is possibly one of the best to shine some intellectual understanding on (our) western existence, our egos and our roles within society... Alan has set me on this amazing path of self discovery and I am forever grateful. Seth is possibly one of the first entities that actually (correctly) unbiasedly explains: life, death, the soul, consciousness and many other things. I strongly believe all Seth books are essential reading for anyone. Extra so for someone who is seeking answers or deeper understanding of the universe and our existence within it. And for anyone who is trying to understand life on a more personal level; Your Soul's Plan by Robert Schwartz is a good if not the best place to start. Just be warned it can be a somewhat dark book, as the author mainly focuses or researches sad if not horrific events of a person's life. It can still be seen as a positive book, I just feel positive life events could have been also investigated.

The Urantia Book
An interesting but maybe not essential information. Still possibly an accurate descriptions of earth/humanity and its place and functionality in the universe.
Possibly the healthiest thing we can do is to eat one Pawpaw or Papaya (same thing) a week or stop eating three meals a day, fasting is also very beneficial from time to time.
