On Monday, I published Dark Days Ahead, and of course, the answer to darkness is Light. There are many ways we can employ the Light in our lives, and the darker life gets on the outside, the more we need to embrace the Light on the inside.
Some minds tune themselves only onto darkness, and we have to be careful about them and what they say. "Our modern civilization is being strangled, coerced into a very narrow pen where speech and ideas must align exactly with a very specific narrative," write the people over at Electroverse.
Personally, because my work as a writer has me soaking my brain in the news every day (both from the mainstream and the alternative more honest and reliable press), my blood pressure and body tension have gotten to the point my wife was wondering if she should order a casket for me.
Forever I have been good at starting my day with mediation, yoga, prayer, solar gazing, conscious breathing, and even EWOT (Exercise with Oxygen Therapy). It all goes out the window, though, when I sit down at my computer and start reading the news. These past two Mondays have brought me to the breaking point, and I was not kidding about my wife’s feelings of desperation about not knowing what to do with me.
For years, I have known that God is the answer to everything, but I have limited that answer to the early mornings and have not brought that into my day and evenings. I have been changing a bit these past few weeks by going to bed earlier and earlier and doing some yoga and mediation right before bed, but even that was not enough.
I have been aware that my stress has been off the charts for years but have not confronted myself directly though I have tried with my wife’s help. It just so happens that I am a difficult case.
I have always been super passionate, highly reactive, and highly empathic since opening my heart about 30 years ago. It is part of my pattern. I feel too much. The ability to feel comes from the heart, whereas the mind loves to think. My vulnerability is my greatest strength, but I am beginning to see that I must tame even my heart by bathing more consistently in the pure Light of pure consciousness.
I wrote and published years ago that it is hard to discern our stress. In my case, I have a VedaPulse from Russia that accurately measures stress (and many other things) by taking pulse readings of Heart Rate Variability (HRV). But through the years, I got tired of the feedback, so I ignored and did not use the machine—shame on me.
I guess I was hiding behind the rationalization that it was my job to be on top of everything that was going on so I could write about it. My mission has always been the truth since every word we write and publish is recorded somewhere and can be seen for all time by someone.
As I said Monday, my heart wants us all to live and be happy and healthy, and my path has been to provide truthful information about health, medicine, climate, and even economics. I even created a form of medicine that everyone can practice at home without doctors’ interference, and it has helped people around the world battle cancer and other diseases.
Before Monday, the last time I did my HRV was on March 3rd, just as COVID invaded the world and all our lives. On a typically zero to a thousand scale, my stress level was 1,200, so the scale was changed to accommodate my ridiculously high-stress level to zero to 3,000. I must have published 60 essays on COVID since.
Monday, I finally tested again, in desperation, and my stress was at 1514. I ran over to a friend’s house and said I am worried about myself. My friend said, "Finally."
I went home and started breathing with my Frolov and managed to get it down first to 719 and then 514. Today as I write this, it’s back at 701.
So I am making some big changes. It is now eight in the morning, have been up for four hours, and have not opened the news!!!
What I am going to do instead is bring the Light into my day and into my evening by concentrating on not only breathing but my mediations and prayers throughout the day.
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
I have used other palms to induce me into meditation for decades but today was the first day of bringing this to my soul. I would change the law of the Lord to Light of the Lord because that is what I fill myself up with, the Light of Pure Consciousness.
The first Psalm was a gift from my wife yesterday after I told her my mentor Christopher Hills said to us students that if one could fix their mind on God for 24 hours without stopping, such a person would get enlightened, whatever that means.
Most spiritual and religious people would understand that more God would be a good thing unless expressed in self-righteousness.
For me, it is the prescription out of my dilemma, out of myself and my stress, and will take me away from death’s door and that casket my wife was imaging getting for me.
That is my personal story. However, that is just the beginning of writing about the Light and what we can do with it. Tomorrow will start writing a series about the Light, and a good starting point is how it is the perfect medicine for COVID, with many scientists and physicians weighing in on this. Not sure why all the hysterics about the need for a vaccine when the ideal treatment is the Light and the vitamin D it creates when we have access to the sun regularly.
Then we will talk about cancer and how important it is to prevent and treat cancer. And there is more, a lot more to understand about the Light and what it does for us.
After Note: Tuesday was a day of synchronicity for me, receiving feedback from multiple sources, including the following note from one of my readers:
“I like to remind myself that it is in the very depth and deepest of darkness that the Light shines even more, and most importantly, that no darkness can hide or extinguish the Light! Just go into a pitch-black closet, light a match, and SEE for yourself, how the very smallest spark of Light pierces the dark and OVERCOMES the darkness.
May I encourage you to focus on the Light and not the darkness. Truly, it’s our only way OUT of this darkness, or ANY darkness! I implore you Dr. Sircus, to let Light and Love fill, if not flood your being to overflowing, not unlike pouring clean, clear, pristine water into a glass of muddy water. Eventually, the muddy water is overcome by the pure, clear water.”
