On the Path

Going out the door, 'on the path...'
This journey began with an inner discontent with college that led me from the study of architectural engineering at Ohio State University to a personal study of modern psychology (Jung) and the archetypes in the collective consciousness of humanity.
My fervent intent to know the design criteria for inspired spaces on the outer led me to deep insight into the archetypal frame of reference for 'Co-Creation' with the 'Creative Spirit' on the inner.
prayer of desire is not seldom
In deep meditation and prayer for
direction, a dialogue with that "small voice within" began answering
my big questions about the deeper meaning of life. As simple
questions were answered, an enthusiasm for more insight awakened
understanding of the "golden thread" (archetypal maps of
consciousness) weaving the fabric of
dialogue with my 'Higher Self' culminated with the big question:
Since my study of universal archetypes had brought me to an
understanding of the golden thread of wisdom common to
ancient and modern maps of consciousness,
My back arched as energy shot up my spine from base to
crown. First I flashed through my past like a near-death
experience, and then I saw into the future with a kind of
"future memory" (knowing) that was effortless...
whatever I wanted to know.
This was no ordinary "life-changing" experience.
I was quickly led by curiosity to places where I could get
my hands on books dealing with 'the mysteries' understood by
mystics, seers and spiritual visionaries throughout
history. One of those books was 'The
View Over Atlantis' which
explained how 'geomancers' throughout history have created
sacred sites where the geometry of a celestial and
terrestrial 'interface' nurtured a connection with the
Spirit that matters,
That made a lot of sense to my new sensibilities, and then I discovered another book that referenced a modern day 'mystery school' in California where I was determined to go for better understanding of my experience and 'strange' abilities.
This path is not for the feint-hearted or weak-minded.
There's nothing 'extra' about 'Extra Sensory Perception'
when you've got it. But 'normal' has a different meaning to
most of us. So what happened next was a big 'test', as you
After my 'test' dealing with family concerns for my mental health, I was compelled to go on a spiritual quest to what I believed was the "mountaintop" (source) of the mysteries of God. Having little money but even less fear because my intention was pure, I traveled '1st class', putting out an open hand that encourages the Good Samaritan in people.
Little did I know that this journey would lead to one of the most bizarre examples of what Jung calls 'synchronicity' that I've ever heard of or could imagine possible.
Hitchhiking from Troy Ohio, I got an exceptional ride near the state border with a guy on the way to Alaska. Roger agreed to take me as far as Seattle, which was not the most direct route to my San Jose destination, but we went the scenic route out through Yellowstone Park, up through Glacier National Park, and west to Seattle where I hitch-hiked down Highway 1, camping along the Coast.
When I arrived at the mystery school, I discovered that classes were in session with subjects like 'mental world' that I signed up for. Since I got my parents to cash in their life insurance policy on me before I left, I had just enough money to pay for my schooling and for a local boarding house dormitory with classmates. They were from all over the world -- a wide range of seekers and adepts who were also on the path.
Eneg from Nigeria in meditation
As my roommates shared some of their extraordinary mystical experiences between classes, my eyes opened to a world rarely seen in secular schools. One guy was an opera singer from Italy. Another had been on Iceland's Olympic Fencing Team. George had just got out of the Peace Core in Chile. There was the street preacher from LA who made delicious cabbage soup for all of us. And Eneg was a school teacher from Nigeria who I often found in prayerful meditation.
Eneg kept to himself in a
humble unpretentious way. I shared my experience of
'cosmic consciousness', and asked if he had any mystical
experiences of his own.
One naturally becomes open to spiritual powers when their pure intention focuses attention with love's retention for ascension in the dimension of Higher Power comprehension. Eneg was adept at this 'mediation with Source'.

It's the same for Net reality in civilization as it is for an individual. The order of the universe we discern for ourselves is the cosmic order we become. The holy spirit of -in-action is for-giving, and we can't give what we don't have. That's why discernment is the first gift of the holy spirit. When we get it, we graduate to public service at a higher level of 'synchronicity' with the cosmic scheme of things.
As I hitch-hiked home through Boulder Colorado, I looked up a friend who had moved there from O.S.U., and I considered moving to live there myself. One evening I went walking in the neighborhood to get the feel of the community, walking up to a house with 'good vibes', music coming out the windows. Just then, out walked a couple, and I just stood there as they approached. The guy greeted me with What's happening? In a few words, I told them how I had a vision back at OSU, hitch-hiked out through Yellowstone Park, up to Glacier National Park, out to the West Coast, down to a mystery school at San Jose, back through Lake Tahoe, "and here I am!"
Just then, I noticed a God and Country medal pinned to the jeans of the young lady, and with great surprise I said, "That's not only a Boy Scout medal for God and Country, but also that each Church had a different one, and that's the one for the Methodist Church! Where did you get that?" "Glacier National Park", she responded. "On the Going To The Sun Road?" Yes, she said. "At the foot of a glacier?" She nodded in agreement. "WOW! I lost that while shoe-skiing on the Glacier on the way out. I got that in Boy Scouts and kept it over my heart in my shirt pocket, wondering at the meaning of God and Country as I went to the mystery school."
In shock for a moment, we just stood there. When she began removing the medal I stopped her, saying that I would never forget this, and that she would get a lot more out of it. As she protested, I insisted. But when I ran into them the next day in downtown Boulder, I shot this picture. It was far beyond coincidence the first time, and the second time, I got the message that I was supposed to have it back.
Of course, there are no accidents in the universe, unless you believe that everything is mechanistic, pre-ordained and etched-in-stone with a fatalistic mind-set that you can't escape. Such belief in predestination without the invisible hand of 'Source' is just as extreme as no moral compass whatsoever.
