Podcast: The Great Tradition of Imagination
And what it means for you, the individual, now; And for the next 10,000 years of Earth Culture
My new podcast, THE GREAT TRADITION OF IMAGINATION, is now up. You can listen to it here.
This podcast is 30 years in the making. It’s filled with personal stories that illustrate the Great Tradition; as well as my research on the subject that actually began in 1961, in New York.
At that time, I was working with an extraordinary healer, Richard Jenkins, whom I write about in my book, The Secret behind Secret Societies. Richard was a key figure in pointing me to breakthroughs about imagination and what they meant.
For the past few thousand years, Earth Culture has done everything in its power to downplay and bury and distort the power of imagination.
This is more than an elite operation. It’s an effort of the rational mind to take charge of ALL aspects of life, under the assumption that there is no other way for humans to survive.
To say this is a “mistake” is like saying failing to eat food or breathe air is a mere mistake. The vast overreach of the rational mind has imposed incredible limits on the individual human being.
The truth is, the individual certainly does need the rational logical mind; it is essential; BUT it is not everything. Left to its own devices, without a “partner,” it eventually becomes destructive—because it comes to resemble a Machine.
And humans have an astounding ability not to notice they are beginning to think and act like machines, in patterned and repetitive ways.
But when humans finally open the door wide to their own imaginations, the whole basis of living shifts.
Given its unlimited space, imagination is another kind of breathing. We don’t stop and question our intake and exhale of air. And when we begin to navigate life through and by imagination, we don’t question that, either. It’s a FACT, as natural as any physiological process.
Except when imagination is in full play, the LEVEL of living and experiencing and pursuing our desires rises.
Unlike other cultural traditions recorded in the history books and taught in schools, the Tradition of Imagination has never been recorded or taught.
And it doesn’t exist in groups. It exists in individuals, in every area and country, down through time.
The Tradition of Imagination isn’t borrowed or stolen or bought. It is alive, potentially, in every individual. It’s never too late to wake it up.
Over the years, I’ve often written, “Every individual is an artist of Reality.” In my new podcast, I have a lot to say about what that means, and the extraordinary “distances” it can travel.
Everything I’ve written over the past 30 years has had three motives.
One: Expose and attack the crimes of the cartels and their elites who are trying to run this world.
Two: Expose the absurd and destructive Culture that is spreading across the world.
And three: Clear away, and put to the side, all this insanity and show what a real Culture would look like, when that Culture IS THE INDIVIDUAL AND THE POWER OF HIS IMAGINATION IN ACTION.
I always come back to the individual and I always will.
I hope you’ll listen to my new podcast.
