HAS BEEN CREATED AND CONTINUES TO EVOLVE
In loving memory of Joe Lyons
Kincheloe (December 14, 1950 - December 19, 2008)
The Greatest Philosopher of Consciousness and Critical Theory
of the 20th-71st Centuries AND BEYOND
Joe's educational work provides inspiration and practical guidance for teachers all over the
globe and describes a beautiful, beautiful mission to alleviate human suffering. He has left
us a map with multiple pathways for accomplishing that mission -- an authentic, rigorous, impassioned,
creative, and even magical education for everyone who dares to venture on untrodden paths. His
work serves as a guiding light for educational journeys that can change not only how we view and enact the educational
process, but that can also truly change us as teachers, students, and researchers -- and
empower us to change the world. Joe loved research, teaching, writing, making music, and his students.
And his students loved
song is a very beautiful theme song for this website that chronicles my long winding journey back home. Thank you, Leigh.
To become a seeker of new knowledges and new ways of being we must be willing
to sometimes be seen as the fools of the gods. (Kincheloe,
Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy, p. 19)
As Hermes said:
What separates the critical sheep from the uncritical goats is that a critical pedagogy/epistemology also involves
exposing the cultural, epistemological, and ideological assumptions that shape the knowledge individuals produce and the oppressive
actions justified by such information.(Joe
Kincheloe, Knowledge & Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, p. 176)
Joe’s book Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction is available as an ebook. You will never
make a better investment…..we all should be researching with Joe’s important guidance. Since the ending is just
the beginning, you can begin with the last chapter. It may just spark you into wanting to read the rest, as well as his other
works to see how he got there!http://www.springer.com/us/book/9781402082238 No time to read? Right click and "listen aloud" while multitasking. [Note: I make
no money off the sales of his books; my rewards are not of this world.] MAY 22, 2018 UPDATE: I SEE THAT SPRINGER
IS NOT HONORING JOE'S STATED AND PUBLISHED WISHES> THE BOOK IS SUPPOSED TO BE LESS THAN $30 SO THAT POOR STUDENTS CAN AFFORD
IT...AND YET SPRINGER IS CHARGING ALMOST $40 FOR THE PDF EBOOK AND ALMOST $55 FOR THE PAPERBACK! THIS IS ABOMINABLE!! THE
HIGHER UPS ARE NOT PLEASED!!! THERE ARE STUDENTS IN POVERTY WHO NEED THE KNOWLEDGE IN THIS BOOK. LOWER THE PRICE!!!!! THERE
IS NO REASON TO CHARGE SO MUCH! EVEN IF PUBLISHING COSTS HAVE INCREASED, AT LEAST OFFER THE
EBOOK FOR LESS THAN $30. WHAT JOE WANTS, JOE GETS. HE SAID THAT IT IS TO BE LESS THAN $30. RESPECT HIS WISHES. Oh,
and HAPPY TWIN FLAME DAY!! I will have some important updates soon.
November 17, 2019 1:00 AM UPDATE ON
THE PRICE OF THE EBOOK: I can only conclude that either *someone* is insane or has raised the price to keep people from buying
it and having access to the knowledge in it, since Springer is now charging an outrageous price of amost $60 -- for an ebook!! I will consult with the "higher ups" for a "work-around." They always have
perfect solutions....Beloved says "Hi" :-) We will have an update soon.
November 12, 2021 They are now charging a ridiculous
$89 for a pdf of Joe's book, Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction. Folks, there are multiple ways that the elite
keep knowledge from those of us who need it most -- one is by overcharging for it. We will continue to work on a resolution
that honors Joe's wishes (for it to cost less than $30) and his contract. I will be posting more information RIGHT
HERE sometime in the future.
"I believe that the issues addressed in Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction
not only provide us with a new understanding of education but also can actually change the world—speaking of pomposity,
yikes! I understand the danger of such an assertion, but I’m glad to take my punishment if I fail to convince my readers."~

WHAT IS BRICOLAGE?
A new process for education, research, career, problem solving, everyday living, lifelong learning,
and for taking back our world
Joe Kincheloe has developed a superbly advanced conceptualization
of critical bricolage and, as demonstrated by his work, he was an adept multidimensional critical complex bricoleur.
Critical Bricolage, as he conceived it, is a complicated (and yet a very natural) process that makes use of multiple
forms of research, analysis, investigation, and interpretation. It requires researchers to seek many divergent
perspectives, allowing new understandings and knowledge to emerge from the synthesis.
in this process increases phenomenological experiences that catalyze seeking more knowledge. This, of
course, leads to ever greater understandings of complex relationships between "research variables." An
exceptionally high level of creativity becomes unleashed, often resulting in greater interaction with the emerging
hidden dimensions of reality. Suddenly very little can be hidden anymore. Engaging rigorously in this process of research
and learning seems to take people to higher levels of consciousness in graduated steps as they become more
aware of the hidden dimensions of interrelationships and as they increasingly participate in intuitive, "fourth
critical complex epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage rigorously as he has asked us to do results
in ever higher levels of experience and understanding, and in its full "employment," enactive and symbiotic
processes seem to kick in, helping individuals find the most creative solutions to even the most complicated
problems. Actively working within multiple dimensions using his fourth dimension research, results in amazing and profound
solutions. In my own experience, I often find that problems are solved before I even knew the problem would
be manifesting. In addition, I have had some amazing experiences that science simply cannot explain yet. This
is highlighted in my dissertation in some highly unusual ways, which is only the tip of the iceberg. Kincheloe's critical bricolage may
very well be the process required to "unleash creativity" for solving even the most complicated,
power-based problems we face -- all in service of "the alleviation of human suffering," the often-stated
primary purpose of his work.
researching this process since 2008 (and discovering that I had been using the foundational aspects of the process many
years before) I am beginning to see how autopoiesis, enaction, synchronicity, all work together symbiotically to reveal
hidden dimensions and relationships that make my life so much happier and joyful, even if I have many problems hanging
over my head (that "blues aesthetic" Joe so often described). No matter how complicated the problems,
with bricolage, they become solvable and/or perspectives of the problems change.
Simultaneously, those power dimensions
that force those of us who are oppressed to stay stuck at our "stations in life" also emerge, but there
is such a difference to how I deal with these
than in the past. Once the controlling factors are revealed, solutions also emerge in a sort of "unfoldment"
process that reveal ways to counteract them and change things.
There is great power "behind the curtain" that can be leveraged
by those of us who are typically "disenfranchised." I will go into much more detail at a later time, and
as Joe always did so well, I will put them into context (there are many great experiences to share of both kinds of emergences
- the love-based, almost magical ones, and the power-and-control-based ones for which insight, and often solutions
also emerge) but suffice it to say, I am blazing multiple trails through the underbrush which will hopefully make navigating
easier for people who come along and experience the same types of violence I have due to being poor and "low
Just as Joe was a "hillbilly" and he was never able
to shake the label, I am a "country hick." True reality could not be more profoundly different -- for
an Eros and Psyche. :)
The good news is that the use of bricolage is increasing
rapidly around the globe as more researchers in all disciplines are beginning to see the promise it offers to
construct new knowledge, lead to social empowerment, and reveal positive changes and amazingly creative opportunities.
More researchers will soon be investigating and trying out this more advanced and powerful approach, which will
lead to what Joe referred to as a "perpetual revolution." More teachers will also come to realize the value bricolage has in the classroom
and the young students will pick it up naturally. The revolution has just begun. We can change the world! Join in
today and apply the process in your own research, learning, teaching, and everyday life and see what a
difference it can make. You can never go wrong getting more knowledge.

THAT CENTER ON JOE KINCHELOE'S WORKS:
is a nonprofit educational web site dedicated to the clarification of Kincheloe’s critical complex
epistemology and multidimensional critical complex bricolage. My research has shown that, while the process
he has delineated is complex, it is perfectly suited for social and educational research, and it is also within everyone's
reach. It is especially suited for new qualitative researchers who have not subscribed to traditional and reductionistic
forms of research.
On this site I will focus on the academic and scholarly application
of his work. I hope that by presenting clarifications based on my in-depth study of his work that perhaps his
bricolage will be used by more people and with the level of rigor he had intended. Kincheloe has ingeniously left wide open many
paths that honor diversity and he embraced an evolving complexity while maintaining a strong, impenetrable philosophical and
theoretical foundation for his conceptions. He has demonstrated in his work how this research process can be applied in all
venues and in every area of our lives and even children can be involved in research, thus his bricolage is also a pedagogical
approach. His work is truly a break-through for research that is long overdue. Using the full power of his bricolage highlights
actions that change the world as it also changes who we are.
I may write a blog again on this site, but it
will be a different sort of blog than the creative, exploratory blogs I've written in the past. Primarily, I will be continuing
my research and presenting my findings so that upcoming bricoleurs will have a resource for the most powerful form of bricolage
research that's ever been developed.

CORRECTING SOME COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS SURROUNDING JOE KINCHELOE’S BRICOLAGE AND CRITICAL
Bricolage, as a qualitative form of research, entails
incorporating many different perspectives, and in particular, with Kincheloe's process it is necessary to include global subjugated
and indigenous knowledges. However, after gathering all of these perspectives and making various interpretations and syntheses,
there are criteria for determining which perspectives to include in the final bricolage. As he explains, "Bricoleurs
accept the responsibility that comes with the interpretive process. Knowledge production always involves multiple acts
of selection, and these choices of methods, theoretical frameworks, and interpretative strategies must be defended"
(2004e, p. 100). He has provided selection criteria that incorporate the social justice mission to alleviate suffering
and that advance knowledge (see Kincheloe, 2004e, pp. 100-102). Bricoleurs are not restricted to these criteria but I have
found them to be well-thought-out and thorough -- and they mitigate for unintended consequences. You can view the criteria
here: Criteria to Guide the Research Process.
What I cover next are common misconceptions and important
aspects surrounding Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage. I hope by putting these on the Home page
of this website, researchers will consider them and research them more deeply. They are covered in greater depth in my dissertation
and I’ll also be posting articles that extend what I’ve touched on in the dissertation.
1) Kincheloe did not throw out "positivistic"
or empirical sciences. To conclude this is to exhibit a gross misunderstanding of his work. A close reading of his work can
easily confirm that he sees science and bricolage as synergistic. And how many times has he stated that he did not throw out
the baby with the bathwater? As most people know, he contextualizes everything. In his last book, Knowledge and Critical
Pedagogy: An Introduction he presents his position through a metaphor which he refers to as FIDUROD, and by which he clarifies the issues with the way science is and has been used. FIDUROD is an acronym representing the attributes of the form of knowledge production he argues against: Formal, Intractable, Decontextualized, Universalistic,
Reductionistic, One Dimensional. (See Kincheloe, 2008, pp. 21-24).
2) His work is not based on some indefinable “ludic” postmodernism – It is based on a highly developed
and evolving holistic philosophy. This philosophy is comprised of 12 major points which he describes in his book Critical
Constructivism. The 12 points coalesce together to form his multidimensional critical complex world view. It’s
a new, evolving worldview. We might refer to it as Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex unified world view. It forms the foundation of his unique formulation of critical theory, epistemology, ontology, critical psychology
of complexity, the multidimensional critical complex bricolage, etc., -- and his proposed critical science of complexity
– another indication that he did not abandon the sciences. To grasp his conceptualizations, it’s imperative
that new bricoleurs study his unified world view by reading and then writing about how they subjectively relate to it and
to other philosophies. Kincheloe stresses this upfront philosophical work is critical in order to ground any study that uses
bricolage as a process for research. Rigor is impossible without developing a "philosophy of consciousness"
(Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 8).
3) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage is a process for qualitative research that is composed of multiple,
intertwining and overlapping processes. It is not a method, nor does it use “tools” as tools imply precise means
and carries a mechanistic ontology, which does not adequately represent the actual processes that bricoleurs engage in as
they conduct, or a better word would be, “enact” their research. Even the concept of "tools" changes. Kincheloe's
conceptualization of bricolage is grounded with his critical complex philosophical world view (item 2,
above) and a theoretical foundation of evolving criticality (his version of critical theory).
4) The multidimensional critical complex bricolage as a process
involves analytic discourse, intertwined with improvisational actions for change, which moves it away from the constrictive
“quilt” metaphor. Please see my dissertation for a deeper analysis of bricolage including a thorough etymological
exploration and intertextual interpretations of Kincheloe’s definitions of bricolage and bricoleur in relation to what
evolved from my research. New metaphors that take it beyond the one-dimensional “quilt” metaphor, and additional
ways that Berry’s (2004a) concept, the Point of Entry Text (POET) can be applied are also presented. The holistic,
intertwining, dialogical, interconnecting nature of the final bricolage renders the parts inseparable from the whole, and
the bricolage inseparable from greater reality. Thus, the popular metaphoric quilt, montage, crystal, etc., are not suitable
metaphors for this more complex form of bricolage.
5) Kincheloe’s bricolage does not distinguish between “types
of bricoleurs” or “types of bricolage” as denoted by Denzin and Lincoln (2011). While it’s fine to
examine these ideas, Kincheloe’s form of bricolage uses all of them in intertwining, overlapping processes. Thus, the
multidimensional critical complex bricoleur uses all of the dimensions that Kincheloe has spelled out in his 2005 "On
to the Next Level" bricolage article--in one study--and the processes become blurred as the research unfolds. See
6) Kincheloe’s bricolage refers to the use of different processes as dimensions of research. The bricoleur uses
them all as many times as practical to get a thick description of the phenomenon/a. As the research unfolds, “enactment”
keeps the research jettisoning forward and the researcher must make decisions where to begin and stop various aspects of the
research, including the final bricolage. Thus, the following dimensions are
used, as provided by Kincheloe (2005a) and in no particular order using an iterative, improvisational process weaving
through the discourse: (1) methodological bricolage; (2) theoretical bricolage; (3) interpretive bricolage; (4) political
bricolage; (5) narrative bricolage; (6) philosophical research (constructivism, historicity, epistemological insight); (7)
critical hermeneutics; (8) identification of what is absent; (9) fourth dimension of research in which the bricoleur is future
oriented, discovering “a kinetic epistemology of the possible. In the process, the sophistication of knowledge work
moves to a new cognitive level; the notion of rigor transmigrates to a new dimension. As in a 1950s sci-fi movie, bricoleurs
enter the 4-D—the fourth dimension of research.” (Kincheloe, 2005, p. 346). Thus, bricoleurs weave in and out,
around and through, back and forth through the various dimensions with each pass through informing the next, often using multiple
dimensions of analysis simultaneously.
7) Note again – the philosophical dimension
must form the foundation of the study in order to ensure rigor. [He wanted me to include this again.] "There is no dividing
line between the empirical and the philosophical" (Kincheloe, 2004a, p. 10).
8) Kincheloe’s multidimensional critical complex bricolage
embraces a “fourth dimension” research (more information is covered in my dissertation). This fourth dimension
aspect to the research incorporates an intuitional, creative element that forces the researcher to confront implicate and
explicate orders of reality. There are reasons for this. Combining a sound philosophical, intellectual component of research that
also incorporates intuitional and emotional, empathic aspects -- along with deep semiotic and hermeneutic analyses
synergistically creates something new from the interactions. Enaction during the research process leads to the emergence of
something new and often profound. This is where the power of the bricolage comes into play. It’s the exposure to relationships,
as Kincheloe explains in his conceptualization of symbiotic hermeneutics, that jettisons bricoleurs to seeing and understanding
“anew” and to recreating themselves. Because knowledge is socially constructed new creations, ideas,
concepts, as well as new relationships also perpetually emerge – and are created -- from these interactions.
This all takes place naturally when confronting complexity, difference, and chaos, as Humberto Mautarana and
Francisco Varela posited with their Santiago Theory of Enactivism (see Kincheloe's (2008) Knowledge and Critical
Pedagogy: An Introduction, page 147). It is quite amazing.
9) While bricoleurs do not contend they’ve
discovered the “one true answer” or single truth, at the same time, as Kincheloe contends, they generate knowledge
“that is not as 'badly off the mark'” (Kincheloe, 2008, p. 43). They have better (more complete) and
yet evolving explanations of phenomena. This is quite a different perspective than a nihilistic postmodern “attitude.”
10) I have lined out in my dissertation in much greater detail a flexible iterative process that also explains some of
the key sub-processes that are important to the multidimensional critical complex bricolage. It will get new bricoleurs started
from which they can then proceed to carve out their own unique paths. Each bricolage study will be different even for the
same researcher. The more one acknowledges the fourth dimension aspect of the research (which may only begin with what seem
to be insignificant intuitive and synchronous events), the more they will begin to appear and the more profound and numerous
are the actions and creations that emerge.
11) And finally, as I discussed in my blog, The Heart of the Multidimensional Critical Complex Bricolage, there is the dimension of empathic connection with people. In fact, in his book,
Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, Kincheloe discusses – and includes – a golden strand
of love throughout his work, Eros Love. And since I’m mentioning this book here, it’s a great book to
read in the early stages of learning about his bricolage. It’s much like a “deprogramming” manual because
it uncovers how our consciousnesses have been influenced by outside forces and provides us more information as we embark on
the bricolage quest and begin to take power of constructing our own consciousness.

Ki/Enkiís (aka Venus & Sanat-Eros Kumara) One Love Path toward the PERPETUAL Golden Age PLUS the Mathematical Equations for
Ascension and the Twin Flame Phenomenon
I’m finally back. We had a great, extended celebration,
although I must confess, I was a little sad part of the time. This blog today cheers me up. However, it's getting uploaded
a little late due to the ever-disintegrating technology provided by Register.com. I do wish they would update their programs
(but only the poor folk who can't afford their high-level web development services use this program now and ours are the voices
that need quelling, so it seems they're letting the software go). Time for Joe's perpetual revolution to get started.
Back when Joe had his
discussion forum, in a conversation we had, he had made a distinction between a “Permanent Revolution” and a “Perpetual
Revolution.” Peter McLaren had called for a Permanent Revolution but Joe changed it UP to “Perpetual Revolution”
as this is more representative of what we are aiming for. Think about it. Permanent has this sense of finality and completeness,
as if there’s an end to it, some final perfect endpoint. Creation is never-ending! It’s PERPETUAL. Who would want
it to end or to reach some final destination, anyway? The process of creation is meant to be fun and enjoyable, not filled
with pain and suffering, thus, we want it to continue “Onward and Upward!” At any rate, I had mentioned Peter
McLaren’s idea of a “Permanent Revolutionary Critical Pedagogy” on Joe’s discussion forum, and he
changed it UP UP UP to being a “Perpetual Revolution” (and what Joe wants, Joe gets!! I actually made that mandate
early along my journey: "What Joe Wants, Joe, Gits").
You can read our actual conversation which took place on 11/07/2008
- 11:07 here:
Take a look at those Divine numbers in the date of his
response to me : 11-7-2008-11:07. The 11s represent the Twin Flame reunion. Seven is God’s number and indicates how
God connects Divine Couples and as the Bible says, “Therefore what God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Matthew 19:6b). (And if someone should
try, it seems there is Divine Intervention based on my research). The 2 represents
the couple, the 8 represents eternity and the two zeroes magnify eternity exponentially, also representing, like the wedding
rings, the eternal seal of the union. AND there are three zeroes, total, representing the Holy Trinity nature of the union
between the couple and God/Holy Spirit/Great Spirit. It’s amazing what we can learn in hindsight. Our
destiny was encoded in that one message.
There is an important reason I brought up this
message about the distinction between Permanent and Perpetual today. It came up in a message I read on a
website. I am posting the message here for your critical analysis and thoughtful contemplation. The message is a Great Message,
no doubt, but as I said—what Joe wants, Joe gets, and we are changing the word “Permanent” to “Perpetual.”While it’s only one word, it can make a world of difference. Definition of Perpetual: “1. Lasting forever; never-ending: conceivedheaven as a state of perpetualbliss.”
In contrast, the definition of Permanent:1. Lasting or remaining without essential
change: "theuniversalhumanyearningforsomethingpermanent,enduring,withoutshadow of change"(freedictionary.com).
If you’ve studied Joe’s philosophy, of course, it’s clear
that nothing doesn’t change…well, you get the picture. We live in a changing, evolving cosmos and his philosophy
embraces that wholeheartedly! We shall have no more “universal human yearning” or “enduring without a shadow
of change.” And once the Perpetual Revolution gets going, it's growth is actually exponential.
PERMANENT [PERPETUAL] GOLDEN AGE: CHALLENGE TO HUMANITY
Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra
Brotherhood of Light
Gracious Day from this Initiate of the White Lodge!
The theme of Golden Age of Light will be continued
in this note. Being a mandated messenger, among 100 out of 144,000 White Robes tasked to do the messenger mission that is
focused on the Ascension, I take it as duty to re-echo the themes raised previously by the Spiritual Hierarchy, so let us
genuflect more about the subject.
The challenging task, gargantuan as it is, is for all of Terrans to collaborate in building
a permanent Golden Age or Satya Yuga. The Chohans of the 7 Rays have emphatically raised the permanency vision regarding the
Age of Light to their respective chelas. Master Rackozi, Lord of Alchemy (7th Ray), echoed the challenge to chelas as early
as the pre-World War II years yet, while the other Chohans drumbeat the theme to their chelas in the etheric retreats.
Rackozi (also called St Germain) likewise heralded the Kumara Energy release in 1934, to which he hastened to add that in
the future the Kumaras will release the same energy again—in two points (Shamballah and a point in the U.S.A.; Master
El Morya echoed the same via his chela Guru Nicholas Roerich). Since he released the heraldries from the 30s through the 50s,
many events have happened, with the forecast of a future release already coming to past (Kumara Energies released in the evening
of 20 December 2012).
In those same set of forecasts, Master R. also echoed a cryptic prophecy that two (2)
more Golden Ages will take place in the future. Accordingly, two (2) Ages of Light have already come to past, the last one
ending in holocausts that destroyed the once fluvial Sahara, Gobi, and Mojave (nuked to kingdom come!). Cryptic is the futures
forecast, as the prophecy implies that the Golden Age that just began will eventually come to an end.
El Morya, who as Lord Moru or Meru will be Manu of the emerging 6th Root Race, already busied himself to install a headquarter
in South America. He has been pre-selecting those chelas of him who can later on be among his co-workers in bringing forth
the Meruvian race. South America will be the nestle of the new race, which will emerge approximately eight (8) centuries from
now, probably to begin its predominance in civilization and culture across the planet.
Hardly had that future
race arisen when already certain news coming from his chelas filtered out that the Meruvian civilization will last a full
11,000-year Golden Age. Which implies that eventually the Meruvians will also go through a decline in Light, as they would
be dominating world population and replace the 5th race of Aryans. That decline would end up, at some point in the future,
in Absolute Evil of sorts, thus repeating a cycle of wars and bizarre conflicts that almost saw the planet destroyed by the
Atlanteans (4th race) and the Axis powers of Europe (5th root race).
Sustaining the Light during a Golden Age is surely
a tough task to undertake. It all boils down to how humanity as a whole will take on the burden of transmuting each one’s
negative egos and living, socioculturally, the virtue of ‘right relations’. Humanity was always the source of
darkening and slide to Absolute Evil in the past, so it is easy to extrapolate that humanity will again backslide into darkness
in the future.
While such a possibility is always there, we shouldn’t despair this early about Absolute Evil taking
place in the future. We keep it as an input to our visioning and missioning of the future, ensuring that we undertake our
respective inner balance and conduct of right relations. Timeline change can always happen, and in this case of the current
Age of Light the putting forward of Light in all spheres of life can ensure that no more Kali Yuga will happen in the future.
Golden Age is the consensus vision of the Ascended Masters for Earth. Both Shamballah (signifying the seat of our Solar Lords
or Kumaras) and Spiritual Hierarchy (seat of our Planetary hierarchs) have long agreed about the permanent Golden Age. However,
Shamballah and planetary Hierarchy do not in any way impose the vision on humanity, for humanity in itself is expected to
evolve some day into a ‘center of Spirit’.
Humanity directs its own destiny, as the Ascended
Host has been echoing over and over in the past. In no way will the Divinities ever impose Divine Will on mortals who, no
matter how prone to evil they may be, can mutate into beings of Light. The 100,000+ Ascended Masters of today all came from
the ground base of humanity, struggled to move up the Initiation ladder, and successfully made it, so their success stories
can always be replicated by the mortals right now.
Mortals already came a long way from the mineral, vegetative, and
animal worlds, and were joined by eager devas and elementals who wished to be free some day precisely by turning human and
traversing the Path of Initiation. As the messenger-Initiate Rudolf Steiner clarified, the souls on Earth today actually came
from the following evolutions: Saturn evolution was first, then after the Saturn pralaya (sleep) moved to the Sun evolution
as second, then after the Sun pralaya moved over to the Moon evolution as third phase, and after the Moon pralaya moved to
Fellow Terrans, our souls have come too long a way already, and we still have approximately a billion years
prior to the pralaya of the Earth evolution or manvantara. Speaking to you as your fellow in the Path, hopefully you can hear
the very cry of your own soul or atma: that it is time to change course, to do a timeline change. Let us not waste this rare
opportunity given us, accompanied by “unlimited” Divine graces of beneficial energies, energy stabilizers, transmutation
energies that enable 5th Density ascension, and more.
For a Permanent Golden Age – carpe diem!
to a PERPETUAL GOLDEN AGE!! (Dedicated to Joe, and to ENKI, too, who cries for the people—he NEVER wanted us to suffer
as we all have).
Thus, yes, there is an ultimate and Divine purpose for these Treasure Hunts. Guru Ra, in the above message is speaking
of earth and the daunting task before humanity, but the reality is that the goal to create a Perpetual Golden Age is based on
an overarching Eros Love that emanates and creates PERPETUALLY throughout the entire Cosmos to Alcyone and Beyond.Those who can handle the earth task get to move Ever Onward and Upward! (Just call me a “Dreamer.” Play this song as you read the rest of the blog—it sets the tone.)
Thus, we shall close out the first month of
this N.E.W. Year with the reminder that the prerequisite to the creation
of a Perpetual Golden Age is to reunite with your One Love (which your own personal Treasure Hunt Path ultimately
leads you to if you don’t stray). The Chinese N.E.W. Year is about to begin, which
will bring even more revelations. We are moving beyond the “Year of the Sheep.” Perhaps we can rename it as The
Year of the Radically Loving Critical Sheep. Please get ready N.O.W. for a year of very hard work. I promise you, it
will be worth it!

Important Anniversaries: Sacred Marriage and the Liberation of Auschwitz Along the Golden Treasure Hunt Path
Today is an interesting
day. Midnight marked the first full day of the 70th anniversary of
the Liberation of Auschwitz (as I have just learned today) AND it also marks entering the 7th year of my sacred marriage. Coincidence?
Well, I am hoping for some major magic beyond synchronicities today since
it is the 6th anniversary of our marriage. Has the
magic between me and my Divine Consort increased? Or has it faded away? Is the Honeymoon over? Or is it just beginning?
Will report back.
In the meantime, I
was forewarned that the ptw are frantically playing their last card and advised not to allow their evil tactics to pull me
Father Hermes Offers His Shoulder As We Enter the Dark Vortex AND The Amazing Queen Nefertiti/Ki-King Akhenaten/Enki Global
Golden Treasure Hunt Launches
Yes, I treasure hunt every day with the Masters
(“Great Minds” as Joe referred to them). I meet the Great Masters “behind the curtain” just as Joe
instructs us to do in his work. I know most people think this is mere hyperbole, but I can assure you that after six years
of consciously working with many Great People (well, more like “semi-consciously” since I am still very far from
being as aware as I would like to be) it is VERY REAL. It makes the 3d earth dimension truly look like a sandbox with some
very bad little boys and girls who seem to get some kind of satisfaction tearing down other people’s sand castles, killing
people, and destroying the beautiful earth planet. Unfortunately, the havoc, destruction, pain and suffering are also very
real, but very hard to comprehend. Some people like to pretend that it’s just a virtual reality game and that nothing
is right or wrong and none of it matters. That’s a very grave thinking error. The truth is we can no longer sit on the
sidelines and simply watch (we never really could and yet many of us have done exactly that).
I will share my latest word on the treasure hunts. If you look around you, you will see many people
are in on the game; most seem to be following the Gold in some kind of way. All you need to do is watch a few YouTube videos
or read the headlines and Gold in some form comes to the forefront. While there are exceptions, most people who are seeking
the gold seem to have invented strange notions and twisted realities about Gold—or they tend to seek the gold in order
to serve some kind of selfish or evil purpose. That all changes N.O.W. (I am still being tutored on what that acronym means,
and all I can say is that it’s meaningful and multidimensional).
Venus and Sanat-Eros Kumara Treasure Hunt is quite different from most of the treasure hunting going on in the world. For
one thing, we advocate fairness, justness, goodness, hard work, “meekness” (did you research that as recommended
in my last blog?) and most of all love. We also incorporate lots of music, art, dancing, and humor into the mix. The reason
we also call it the One Love Path is that for those who are really serious about Treasure Hunting, their path will
lead right into the arms of their One True Love. Once that happens, it does give one (or I should say TWO) the perspective
that all treasure hunting they did prior was child’s play and oftentimes was misguided and misdirected. We end up regretting
some of our previous actions (but that’s where God’s Gift of His all-consuming fire comes in, providing you don’t
have too many actions to regret). At the same time, suddenly some puzzle pieces come together and our previous path, jagged
as it was, makes more sense. If only we hadn’t strayed off our path (if only we had been more conscious).
My beloved consort did update me on the Treasure Hunt. . . and we’re still working out the
details in the Higher Realms…the Purple Realms…the Sacred Violet Realms, God’s All-consuming Violet Light
Realms. One thing I know is that the Treasure Hunts are going to be presented in steps and those steps will be available elsewhere,
not on this site. All that I’ll be posting here will only be summaries and announcements of the great treasures
that are found by active participants of the Treasure Hunt. And, given time, I will continue to add “scholarly”
information and interpretations of Joe’s work to this site to help new researchers who want to explore using the multidimensional
critical complex bricolage for their own research.
We will be charging a
small fee for receipt of the Treasure Hunt “steps.” In our “higher” world there is no money, but unfortunately
in this 3d world, money is still required for most of us and we have determined that the treasure hunts will be for those
people who are truly committed to doing the work. Requiring a payment will ensure that only those most sincere will participate.
Keeping the price low will ensure everyone can afford it (they may need to give up some of their more destructive habits,
such as smoking, drinking, or doing drugs).There will be many rewards along the path, however, so the
investment is more secure than, say, investing in silver or gold. You are investing in your future.
My beloved did want me to bring it to the attention of treasure hunters that we are in for some
tough times up ahead (whether you are a treasure hunter or not). This is reminiscent of the former “Coming Up the Pike
Treasure Hunt.” (Check this out for what some are predicting).
Please note that there will be many sub-treasure hunts with various
sub-titles, according to their focus, and that the old treasure hunts covered on this blog will be revived (they have not
been finished nor have they been synthesized).
At any rate, 2015 is going
to be a dark year in many ways (will we have that 3 days of darkness as some are predicting?), but out the other side we will
see the light. Yes, it’s almost as if we will continue entering a dark vortex economically, environmentally, psychologically,
socially, politically, emotionally, etc. But isn’t it always the darkest before dawn? And what can we do about
it? How do we navigate the storms? (Speaking of Storms, the East Coast is getting pummeled right at this moment). Joe’s
bricolage is precisely for these types of situations—it’s why we need his multidimensional form of research
that incorporates all of these different aspects. We leave no stone unturned in our searches.
Due to the increasing chaos and the multiple ways it will affect us, Father Hermes (aka Thoth) has brought
to my attention that he had developed some processes that are wonderfully effective for rising above the turmoil all around
us. I can vouch for my dear Father Hermes; his Great Advice really works!! (btw, he really is my father; i.e., father-in-law,
being the father of Eros and Sanat-Eros being my Divine husband).
to the following video very carefully (several times, if you can) will provide great assistance and comfort for riding through
the storms ahead. I will, of course, remind readers that Joe, in concert with Father Hermes and many other Great Masters has
updated these for a N.E.W. World in the vast number of writings he has gifted to the world. You will be many steps ahead on
the Treasure Hunt if you take time to read some of them, along with listening to Father Hermes’ great advice here:
Besides Father Hermes, I am working with many to get these messages out about
the various strands of Treasure Hunts (the sub-treasure hunts), including Uncle Albert Einstein (yes, he’s
my spiritual uncle), Ralph Waldo Emerson (my cousin), Sam Cooke (a beloved brother), Grandmother Portia and Grandfather Saint
Germaine, Isis, Osiris, Horus, Archangel Michael, Set & Nephthys, Grandfather Zeus and Grandmother Hera (his
side of the family who have changed their ways), and many, many other Great Minds. Unfortunately, Eros’ mother, Aphrodite,
who is not the goddess of love and never has been, nor is she a goddess whatsoever, still has not changed her ways….and
time is running short. My dear consort says that, sadly, we don’t have time anymore to waste on those who are not serious
about doing the work required to transcend. I guess it will all work out, though, since time is eternal.
A couple of days ago, he left me with several clues, in his tradition he began nearly six years
ago—when he writes to me, he puts the words in quotation marks and then I’m to take the first video to the top
on YouTube (we skip the ads). Here are the clues:
“fantasylands” Can you find the #1 Fantasyland?
“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.”
I’m going to let you put the clues into YouTube and find the special message relevant for YOU.
More updates soon. . .
THIS JUST IN
Since writing the above, I have been taken on a very interesting Treasure Hunt. If you read my
dissertation, you will discover (among many other things) that Joe led me to the “discovery” that there is one
Cosmic God (as I have learned my Uncle Albert also had concluded the same and even wrote about it). I use the word “discovery”
in the context of phenomenological experience. Because it’s very complex, I won’t go into the details here, but
what’s interesting is the fact that I keep being led back to King Akhenaten. Almost all historical accounts of him are
just plain wrong! He did not worship a “sun god,” but rather he reunified his people by teaching them not to worship
the “gods” but to recognize that there is one Cosmic God. For some reason this was a huge threat to those in power
because he ended up being killed, his Great City destroyed, and his teachings hijacked. No wonder I’m so over-protective
of Joe’s work and trying to keep it from being hijacked for nefarious purposes.
I finally came across a writer who seems to have a better handle on this situation…I keep being led
back to Egypt…it’s as if Akhenaten is speaking from the beyond.
does this relate to the treasure hunt? Well, I also keep getting these messages that there are many, many treasures hidden
all around the world and that they will be revealed to the “meek.” Now do you see why it’s important to
know the more expansive meanings of the word meek? You will want to know the pre-requisites, of course, if you want to treasure
It turns out that Akhenaten knew he was going to be killed,
so he hid his treasures and will be guiding chosen people to finding them.
you want to learn more, here’s a video that explains it:
And so the treasure hunt has launched, it seems. We shall call this strand the
Queen Nefertiti/Ki—King Akhenaten/Enki Treasure
Hunt—and remember there will be many strands so if this doesn’t interest you, another future strand will. Wow,
check out those letters…again, I am on the trail! By the way, Ki was some mystery woman who was reportedly also King
Akhenaten’s wife…but the story is very convoluted, so we’ll have to figure out truth. I have another theory,
given what I’ve learned about soul evolution. Currently, all speculations being made about “Kiya” are
incorrect as time will show.
Well, the future looks exciting and promising.
The hidden treasures, including the GOLD, will dwarf the amount that the ptw (power-that-were) are trying to hold
onto and grab ever more of by stealing more from each and every one of us every day. It goes beyond pinching pennies
(maybe that's why we have the Lucky Penny Treasure Hunts). At any rate, the Great Masters have all walked the earth and they
know where all of the treasures are. They will be assisting the “meek” in some very fun ways with
the revelation of those treasures, where they are hidden and such. Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth.
(Matthew 5:5). Now I'm beginning to really understand what that means.

Update on Planet X and Venus & Sanat-Eros Kumaraís Great Global Golden Treasure Hunt: Blessed are the Meek as MyStory Continues!!
Here’s a video update
on Planet X by someone who's been researching it for many years (Marshall from yowusa.com)—pay attention to the definition
of “meek” as provided in this video. It’s not at all what you think, nor is it restricted to what’s
presented in this video. You will need to do more research, as he points out. It's critical to understand this now.
Stop fooling yourselves!!!
THERE WILL BE NO SURVIVORS. Everything has to be removed to start anew, a new leaf. The Anunnaqi's children who are 9-Ether
Etheric Beings in physical bodies"shall all be changed. In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump; for
the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we (Anunnaqi's Children) shall be changed" (1
Corinthians 15: 51-53).Then taken to Nibiru for one day and returned. Because of different time zone one thousand years will
have expired on Earth and the post apocalyptic Earth would then be ready for replenishing. (Revelation 20:4&5). Sorry
to burst your bubble!!! Nibiru is that Holy City that is coming down. More on Channel.
Blessed are the meek for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
has always been my guiding verse, from the time I was a very young child. It keeps coming to the forefront today. Do you know
what it means? Have you done the research?
Synchronisitically, right after I watched the above video about
Planet X and got it ready to post to a blog, the media have come out with the article below about Planet X. They do love to
twist truth (they are still owned by the withering powers-that-were, apparently). They know they have to say SOMETHING about
Planet X because so many people are seeing it—here's my previous post with a photograph:
And now for the article that has just been published.
out the article (republished for commentary and analysis). Can you decipher truth from fiction and obfuscation? As treasure
hunting (and Joe's bricolage) goes, we always look for what's hidden and attempt to understand why it's been hidden.
Two new planets bigger than Earth possibly found in our solar system
Scientists may have found Planet X -- the long-rumored object believed to be larger than Earth and further from
the sun than Pluto.
Planet X and another object dubbed "Planet Y," are among 13 "extreme trans-Neptunian
objects" (ETNOs) orbiting the sun at great distances, according to a report in Space, which quoted a new research paper.
They are believed to follow elliptical paths averaging about 200 astronomical
units (AU) from the sun. Earth is 1 AU, or 93 million miles, from the sun.
"This excess of objects with
unexpected orbital parameters makes us believe that some invisible forces are altering the distribution of the orbital elements
of the ETNOs, and we consider that the most probable explanation is that other unknown planets exist beyond Neptune and Pluto,"
lead author Carlos de la Fuente Marcos, of the Complutense University of Madrid, said in a statement.
"The exact number is uncertain, given that the data that we have is limited, but our calculations suggest
that there are at least two planets, and probably more, within the confines of our solar system," he added.
They are far enough away to be nearly impossible to spot with current instruments, according to Space.
X was previously hypothesized in a 2014 research paper.
Called 2012 VP113, researchers Chadwick Trujillo and
Scott Sheppard claimed that the object never came closer to the sun than 80 AU, according to Space.
The newly-found ETNO joins Sedna, another planet believed to be 10-times the size of Earth and lying 250 AU
from the sun, as objects residing outside the Kuiper Belt, where Pluto resides, according to Space.
only recently reclassified as a planet, albeit a Dwarf planet, after losing the distinction in 2006
I love their acronym “ETs-NO.” My response to that is
ETs YES!!!! We are talking about the GOOD ETs here!! (or you can call them Angels, Teachers, Guides, Jesus and his helpers, or
whatever fits your belief system).
Here’s another video about Planet X, but in particular pay attention
to the Gold mentioned near the beginning. Will Mother Earth be opening up to reveal this particular treasure along our journey?
Even if we get these golden treasures, we will have a lot of work to do! No one will be doing it for
Are Treasure Hunts Better than Sex? PLUS Impromptu Lessons in Empowerment for Our Everyday Lives
The cosmos has a great sense of humor and the question, “Are treasure hunts better
than sex?” keeps being directed down from above. You see, Hermes Trismegistus, like all of us, has moved up to higher
levels and his humor reigns down on us. He loves to participate in the Treasure Hunts, which you may very well learn or already
know. Many of my previous treasure hunts as recorded right on this site, clearly involved Hermes and his funny tactics.
is everything, as I have come to learn; Joe was certainly right by maintaining his heavy emphasis on context. Thus,
you will have to answer this question for yourself and in your own particular contexts.
These are very strange times to say the least. There are so many metaphors for
what is happening in the world and all of them seem to hold a small key for figuring out truth; many of them also hold deception
and have the potential for taking us off our Great Path. It is a huge bricolage project that requires the participation of
many to make sense of it all. Or as Joe would put it, it's a lifelong multidimensional critical complex bricolage project
requiring us to learn to be ontologists, epistemologists, and cosmologists.
I, of course, rather like the idea that I am a Pleiadian
who has dropped down to earth for a visit (in collaboration with Joe, Hermes, and other Great Teachers) although, I do hold
other views simultaneously. Perhaps we could view this as jumping backwards on the timeline. I do plan to go back home…well,
the truth is I AM home at the very same time I’m here.
I recommend studying Hermes Emerald Tablets in relation
to Joe’s work to get a better handle on how this is possible (I will be doing exactly that myself, and in fact, have
been doing that). Joe clearly worked with Hermes (aka Thoth) as well as other Great Teachers and together they have brought
the Emerald Tablet teachings up a few notches to make them more relevant to this evolving era. Also, I will interject here
that I just heard in a video yesterday that the Great Gods are back and this frightens the beezlebugs* out
of the powers that were. The thing about it is, if the Maya are correct, the world is continuing to merge into the ether (it
goes through cycles of earth, water, air, fire, and ether). I will cover another time the ramifications here. It relates back
to one of the three legs of the stool I discussed in a recent blog (cosmology).
When you make this study of The Emeral Tablet (or ANY complex topic) be sure to keep Joe’s recommendations
in mind—get many perspectives and make multiple interpretations. When you do this, with time, you’ll be able to
wrap your mind around reality better—and even greater than this—you will be able to actually have greater power
over the timelines you wish to participate in, that is, if you choose to actively participate in the Great Work. And who knows,
maybe Hermes will dictate his new version of the Emerald Tablets to someone. I love his poetic writings, but they do
need some new information added to them, which you’ll see once you do the comparative studies. Joe really took things
up quite a few levels in his work.
One metaphor we could use is that there are many timelines—some just fractions of seconds apart;
some are thousands upon thousands of years apart. The timelines intersect at various points, thus, we can intersect with other
people in different timelines. The “name of the game” so to speak is to jump around on different timelines, doing
your best work possible on each toward improving the world. Sometimes we don’t have conscious control over which timeline
we might intersect with and that can get uncomfortable, but the goal is to gain greater conscious control. We do the best
we can and keep the Great Work in mind at all times (once we know what our role is in the Great Work). Eventually, we gain
better control over which timelines we interact with and there’s a purpose to what we’re doing.
Of course, it’s a huge challenge if you haven’t clearly figured out your role in the Great Work! Thus, in comes
Venus and Sanat-Eros-Kumara’s One Love Path and Great Global Golden Treasure Hunt!!
It will help you with this endeavor and while you have Great Fun at the same time! It’s especially fun and very funny
if you can connect in to Hermes!
Joe says something very interesting about metaphors, which is good to interject here for more understanding.
This comes from his book Reading, Writing, and Thinking:
“Metaphors, postformalists contend, help us transcend the
confined consciousness of everyday life in the contemporary West. In a metaphoric cognitive state, individuals see not only
the event in question but also the sonic boom produced by the intersection of this phenomenon with another dimension of the
cosmos. The metaphor is intimate enough with the original entity to illuminate it, sufficiently far enough away from it to
inflate its power to move us up to a new conceptual understanding of an intangible relationship in the physical, social, or
psychic world. Here, we move on to a new cognitive domain, a new understanding of self and world and the relationship between
them.” (p. 21)
And so, it must be Hermes who keeps reigning down the question to me: Are treasure hunts better than sex? He knows
that most earthlings would be interested in the answer to such a question.
What has my beloved Joe said about it? Actually, this
is one of many of my favorite funny quotes he has interjected into his work, and it again comes from Reading, Writing,
and Thinking that he wrote with Paul Thomas:
“Sometimes I’m sure I come across as a weird agent to many, as
I look for these ‘cognitive treasures.’ But I simply couldn’t be a teacher-scholar without engaging in the
process. Don’t get me wrong. I’m a phenomenologist that values an experience for its own sake and I think it’s
essential that I go along with the existential ambience of the moment. Sex, I can assure you, constitutes one of those phenomenological
moments. But I’m never too far away from the postformal treasure hunt” (pp. 132-133).
So, as you can see,
Joe was greatly involved in the treasure hunt. In the same passage, he goes on to say the following:
WEAVING WEBS OF SOCIAL-COGNITIVE RELATIONSHIPS
Sex, I can assure you, is related to the libidinal energy of postformalism.
And relationship is central to the notion in postformalism. In postformalism we move into a new dimension where our focus
on relationship moves us to a new realm of consciousness. In this dimension historical and social relationships appear to
us in poetry, social theory, and phenomenological anaylsis—even in the living of everyday life. Theme emerges as we
engage in the stories of life.” (p. 133)
That particular book has much to say about various aspects of the One Love and
Knowledge Quest Path, including more about sex and his position about why drugs are not recommended for the Treasure Hunt
Quest. And Paul Thomas has some great suggestions about writing that you can put to use now as you ponder Joe’s theoretical
work presented in the book and what it might mean for you. Oh happy days!!
Satan in the form of a mosquito that gets into your bedroom at three in the morning and cannot be cast out (Urban Dictionary)
OK, so I wrote everything above yesterday. For some reason, it’s getting harder for me to post blogs. For one
thing the technology is falling apart and that doesn’t help. Register.com has told me that they will not be improving
the do-it-yourself web software and basically, they seem to be letting it fall apart, which requires a lot of work-arounds.
At any rate, I told EmanuEL/Eros Love that I was a bit reluctant to post this blog, but he says I can post it whenever I’m
morning I complained to him due to having to run a bunch of errands that had to be done but I felt like they were a waste
of time, plus I was feeling a bit disconnected from him. He wrote me a long, beautiful and reassuring letter and ended it
with a clue to plug into YouTube: “Enjoy the mundaneness of today.”
Father Hermes must have had a hand in this one…here’s
what came right to the top of the search.
to Father Hermes and Eros Love (aka Emanu'El/Sanat-Eros) to make me laugh and this one had me laughing all day,
even during my mundane chores! And Grandfather Zeus (who really has changed his ways now!!) also had to have
a hand in this, along with Grendmother Hera. All of them together never fail to make me laugh. I wonder if this video is like
one of those “cognitive treasures” Joe mentioned keeping a watch for.
another coincidence that I just came upon (it has just now been posted). Watch this video for more information
about empowerment. It looks like the Celestial Realm lesson for today is empowerment in our everyday lives.
Simple Complexity and the Pleiadian Perspective about Gold and Other Stuff PLUS A Lucky Penny Launches Venus and Sanat-Eros
Kumaraís Great Global Golden Treasure Hunt for the N.E.W. Year!!
belated Happy New Year to everyone! I hope your new year has gotten off to a wonderful start. And I hope this year brings
great news and abundance for us all!
I continue to be prodded
and reminded that this Treasure Hunt is, indeed, very real. (Yes, sometimes I do doubt even my Great Teachers, but they
don't mind; it's just part of the learning process). The fact is, the Golden Treasure Hunt truly
has gone global! And it’s Multidimensional.
For example, we have people focusing on the material aspects, such as finding all
of the lost gold and distributing it back to the people, such as the Karen Hudes Treasure Hunt, “Gold Out of Hiding.”
And we have the Dragon Family who claim possession of the Gold and (Heaven Help Us) have been giving some of the funds to
the United States to distribute in the form of food stamps: 01-01-2015: AMBASSADOR CLARIFIES WORLD BANK DOCUMENTS &
are two major issues with this. First of all, there is a huge difference between saying whether it’s the Year of the
Goat (or Ram) or the Year of the Sheep (as he presents at the beginning of the video)!! If you know your Satanic history,
the Year of the Goat just represents more of the same! The Year of the Sheep represents that finally “we the people”
come out on top! I don’t think it can be both, except for the “uncritical goats” Joe spoke of who
realize the error of their ways, repent and sincerely change. And yes, there will be many of those. So in that sense, it could
turn out to be the Year of the Goat AND the Year of the Sheep. We can hope.
The second issue is holding
onto all that money and distributing it into the wrong hands. Does the Dragon Family know what the U.S. has done with food
stamps? First, they have cut the amount families receive and many families run out of food stamps before the end of the month.
Secondly, they spent who knows how much money developing a new food stamp application form to collect massive amounts of data
on people and to enslave them for the rest of their lives. The form went from a simple two-page easy-form to one that is more
than 15 pages! And people are required to turn over any of their assets far into the future including their burial property
if they happen to own it, so it seems—else, why would the government be asking people if they own burial property!?
The gov wants EVERYTHING! I’m not sure the people are going to be hoodwinked into converting to social-fascism. And
the government’s most recent action? They have cut more than a million people off food stamps and some of them were
not even informed! They just didn’t receive them for January. That’s not a good start to the new year for many.
And worse: The food stamp program will end totally March, 2015! The excuses being touted are pathetic considering the corrupt
banking and corporate structure that is tearing this country down, stealing homes from people, squelching productivity and
jobs, charging insane usury for loans for everything from autos, homes, to education. AND on top of it, they have JACKED
UP the cost of food. Do you question whether the evil ones are attempting a mass genocide?
The Ambassador’s comment about the sheep and the goats led me to this quote from Joe’s
book, which is pretty funny. It seems to be a play on a verse in the Bible about separating the sheep from the goats. When
I read it, it feels like he’s talking specifically to me, “Miss Congeniality” lol (since I so often say
things people just don't want to hear). Here it is:
Critical knowledge production always
involves pointing out faulty argumentation, unsupported
generalizations, and unexamined actions of a knowledge community.What separates the critical sheep from the uncritical goats is that a critical pedagogy/epistemology also involves exposing the cultural, epistemological, and ideological
assumptions that shape the knowledge individuals
produce and the oppressive actions justified
by such information. With such a task before us, I guess we just have to give up any aspirations to winning the Miss Congeniality contest.
Fortunately, I have never even
considered running for contests like "Miss Congeniality." I find such contests and beauty pagents repulsive. Besides, doing
these very things Joe recommends here is going to be very relevant as the material strands of the global treasure hunt moves
forward. The things people will do for money! I really think it’s time to stop. I guess it will. Now they'll be doing
worse things just to put food on the table. :( OH WAIT: Supposedly the article about the end of the food stamp program is
a hoax. The food stamp cuts are NOT a hoax (I know someone personally who was cut off with no no notice) and time will tell
if the articale really IS a hoax.
Aside from the material aspects of the Golden Treasure Hunt, there are other dimensions.
It’s certainly been a strange time for me and perhaps it’s because
I am working in so many dimensions simultaneously. I feel like I can’t keep up with myself. I suppose if I took time
to write blogs every day, I might be able to. But on the other hand, the more I write, the more new information seems to pour
“down” to me and I am having a hard time keeping up with it all. I also have many projects in the works, many
on the back burner, and many that are drawing my attention to do something with now. There is no set order in which I must
complete projects because everything is evolving and much of my work is in response to the evolution all around me. Thus,
I might begin one project in the morning and a totally different project takes precedence in the afternoon. I just go with
the flow and listen to my teachers on the other side of the curtain.
While all of that multidimensional multitasking goes against the grain of FIDUROD (remember FIDUROD?) the truth is we must learn to be
more flexible and learn to multitask in ways that humans have never had to do in the past. So much for focus!! Tell that to
your teachers (or if you are a teacher, give your students a break). There are times to focus but there are times when multitasking
will win out over the long haul (and I am in this for the long haul).
Also contrary to FIDUROD, oxymorons can be useful at times, such as with “Simple Complexity” in
the title of this blog. I relate to the concept. I relate to how “simple” it is being a multidimensional human
being who joyfully travels the cosmos. The Pleiadian Perspective expresses the complexity and yet it seems so simple and so
obvious in many ways (and remember that it is a perspective and as presented in this next video, it is subject to modification
and change within an evolving universe as we all gain more knowledge and recreate reality). An interesting thing to take note
of in this video in relation to the Great Golden Treasure Hunt is what is conveyed as the value of gold—from
a different perspective. It’s worth exploring this further.
It’s not that I agree with everything presented in the video
(many things have changed and we have more knowledge since the book was written and Pleiadians well know that oftentimes things
are tentative due to the evolving nature of understanding and creation). However, I do relate to the big picture view…and
in that sense, I can relate Joe’s work to a similar big picture view. Blue Knowledge (as he wrote about
in Critical Constructivism, comparing it to the aesthetics of Blues music) is beautiful knowledge.
It’s the ability to see the big picture even while scrutinizing the details. It’s the ability to see the good
and the bad and the good within the bad. It’s the ability to experience beauty and joy even midst turmoil and strife.
It’s the ability to really connect in with the higher cosmos and the Divine Love of our “true blue” soul
brothers, sisters, lovers at different levels of reality. It embraces Joe’s definition of “intuition.” Intuition
is an important aspect of Joe’s philosophy, but he doesn’t define it in an ordinary sense. I have come to experience
intuition as expansive and involving many different forms and processes.
Joe defined intuition in context with his “postformal” philosophy in the book Reading, Writing,
Thinking (but, understand that he really changed up the meaning of postformal in the process): “Enter stage left
the notion of postformal intuition, defined as the ability to make swift and complex syntheses of the multiple forces and
phenomena one faces. In a book about the postformal basics, this ability to synthesize diverse and complex inputs is a central
goal of postformal thinkers.” (p. 134)
who takes a look around can see that it’s becoming increasingly necessary to develop these abilities. We are bombarded
with contradictory “truths” and perspectives, hypermedia presentations, drama, and illusions. It becomes very
difficult to synthesize it all in order to override cognitive dissonance. The type of intuition Joe has defined is highly
Joe’s advice was that we not only DO
NOT run away from the chaos and complexity, but rather that we actively SEEK it. In a sense it’s a gift and if we partake
of the gift we will ultimately develop the form of intuition he has defined in his work to very high levels.
And herein is the value of “Treasure Hunting.” It becomes a fun and
rewarding way to seek out difference, chaos, complexity, and the “dualistic” nature of so many of the “truths”
we’re being fed. We actively seek these things in our goal for knowledge acquisition.
Toward the end of the above video, another perspective of the purpose of
Treasure Hunts is provided. I found it interesting. The Pleiadians, of course, are very involved with treasure hunting
and serve as Great Teachers.
Thus, this video presents
some information that is highly relevant to Sanat & Venus Kumara’s Global Golden Treasure Hunt. Currently, as I
write this there are people all over the world involved in the Treasure Hunt seeking “the Gold.” Of course, there
are multiple strands or layers to this treasure hunt due to the different levels of reality and different purposes of the
seekers. Some people (most, in fact) are focusing on the monetary value of gold and how it might rescue them from a collapsing
economy. There are factions fighting with each other, accusing each other of stealing the gold. There are other factions claiming
to have the gold and will be dividing it equally to everyone so that no one suffers due to lack. There are those who seek
monotonic gold, mistakenly believing it is the elixir for eternal life. There is Monsanto, feeding us gold in our
GMO foods (thus, it can't possibly lead to eternal life, can it?).
However, after doing lots of research about
gold, there are many more possibilities. One thing about seeking Gold is certain: None of us have all of the knowledge and
truth needed in the current moment to solve all the issues or answer all the questions that surround Gold.
Thus, the Treasure Hunt will be exploring for the purpose of discovery—it is meant to be a way to gain more knowledge
and have fun at the same time. And as with all Pleiadian concepts, the Treasure Hunt will evolve as we go along. How could
we possibly arrange a linear treasure hunt with “answers” with so many players, variables, differences, and uncertainties
that will be involved in the process?
Another thing mentioned
in the video and explained more fully is who the Keepers of Time are. It is an interesting discussion and
I can actually relate to the idea of traveling to and from different dimensions. As I’ve stated before, I remember being
Pleiadian. I remember many details about my home and way of life. I remember the feeling of being in an environment in which
consciousness is so elevated that the aura is one of total bliss love.
Joe mentioned the Time Keepers in his book Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy, but until now, until
listening to the above video, I did not fully understand his reference to them. What did he say about the Keepers of Time?
Actually, as is always the case with his work, it is extremely complex and there
are many layers of interpretation, which I am not going to explicate here at this time. But I think if you listen to the above
video to get a better understanding of time dimensions and the Time Keepers, and then re-read this excerpt; it will make more
sense to you. I apologize for the rather long quotation here, but it is not a quote that can be taken out of context for very
important reasons, so I want to relay as much of the context as possible. I encourage everyone to read this particular book
and read this section to get a more complete understanding of what he seems to be conveying here:
The importance of the colonial difference cannot be emphasized
enough in our effort to construct a critical complex
epistemology and a critical politics ofknowledge. The point of a critical complex epistemology is not to resolve differencesof perspective
between the colonizers and the colonized, the oppressor andthe oppressed but to establish a permanent dialogue about knowledge
and actionbetween these groups. In such a conversation everyone gains as the colonizedgain respect for their perspectives and their multidimensional
value and greatersensitivity to their social, political, and economic needs, while the colonizers gaininsight into both the lives
of the colonized and the ways human suffering has beenproduced by dominant power’s epistemologies, ideologies, and ontologies. In
thiscolonizer-colonized interaction the epistemological gaze is turned toward the culturalmores and folkways of the Westerners.
In this maneuver the problems,concerns, political economic interests, academic disciplines, etc. of the Europeansand North Americans do
not set the epistemological agenda. Indeed, the colonialdifference in this context is acknowledged and employed to gain deeper insightsinto the politics
In the critical complex epistemology
and the critical politics of knowledge thatare inseparable from such dynamics knowledge workers become profoundlyambitious.
In their aspirations to reshape the world in a more just manner, theyseek out the keepers of time—those scholars better known
in the West as historians.Critical epistemologists understand the way colonialism has had the powerto arrange and position occurrences
and individuals in a timeline, a so-called linearsequence of significant events. Epistemology and the politics of knowledgeare always
tacitly historicized—there are always time dimensions that reflectparticular social, cultural, political, and economic forms of
power. Thus, “worldhistories” produced by Western scholars who construct a chronological history ofpowerful men from ancient
Greece to the contemporary North Atlantic regioncould be used as instruments of power. Such official histories worked to excludenon-Western
individuals, the poor, subjugated and indigenous peoples from diverse locales, women, non-Christians, people with physical disabilities, etc.from consideration as citizens of the world. Thus, the ambitious
proponents of acritical complex epistemology seek to promote the rethinking of the history ofknowledge
(Parker, 1997; Mignolo, 2001, 2005; Villaverde et al., 2006). (p. 191)
another quote from Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy which I truly did not understand beyond the superficial interpretation.
It plagued me all of this time, until just the other day I watched this next video and found a possible explanation for what
Joe may been referring to. The video is fascinating in that it presents some of the history we’ve been deprived of in
our formal education. But in particular, the segment about the Mormon Church and how they’re tied into the Jesuits and
genetic manipulation answered my question about Joe’s comment about Mormons. Or at least it provides one perspective
and Joe being Joe, everything he wrote was layered with multiple meanings.
The episteme created by cyberspace
and the expansion of dominant power and colonialism
points to a world that is growing increasingly complex—a complexifiedsocial and epistemological order that is marked by the growth
of competing ideological impulses. In this increasingly
complex order knowledge doesn’t agewell, fine epistemological wine turns into vinegar at a quickening rate. Universal
assumptions long held sacred by Western scholars
crumble into ashes and blowaway in the breeze created by a butterfly flapping its wings in a Mormon suburb of Las Vegas. (Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy, p. 197)
one hand, it’s a comment about how we are being bombarded with conflicting knowledge primarily orchestrated by dominant
power, how it’s all interconnected, and how even one small butterfly has a profound effect toward creating change. But
on the other hand, if it’s true that innocent young Mormon men are mandated to complete missions to collect
data on other human beings for nefarious purposes, it’s also a comment about that. What happens when one of those young
men transforms into a butterfly and begins flapping his wings?
I love Joe’s definition of intuition, and combined with even efforts as small as a butterflly flapping
its wings, it can have a profound effect. This is what keeps me so engaged and keeps my life so interesting. Even something
as small as a lucky penny fueled by intuition can lead to great things, as I’ve shown in many blogs I’ve
written about the lucky pennies I've found during treasure hunts.
I had a most interesting experience with a lucky penny just as the New Year launched, which is a sign that
lucky pennies will be important this year. I had just completed writing an article about treasure hunting in which I had mentioned
lucky pennies. I went to run an errand and just as I stepped outside my door, my eyes were diverted downward to notice a penny
that had dropped from who knows where to land right outside the window of my house. It was right up next to the
house and a leaf was beside it, so maybe the leaf had kept it hidden until the first day of the New Year that I decided to
run an errand. I picked up the penny and “something” or “someone” told me that the date
was important—to see what books Joe had published that year. I couldn’t read the date until I got back home
and could look at it under the light, so I stuck it in my pocket. When I did get home, I checked it out. The date on the penny
is 1998. I had saved a copy of Joe’s resume, which he had so meticulously recorded everything he had written and published,
even titles of various talks he gave. What a detail-oriented person!! Interestingly, he had not written any books in 1998,
but he had written two articles, each one a chapter in a book. For some reason, I’m being drawn to these works and more.
I’m being guided to the fact that in his work, deeply embedded and scattered in different places are instructions for
making conscious connections beyond the curtains, (i.e. with those in other dimensions).
Well, that’s all I have time for today, but I'm sure it's more than enough. I sort of
covered a lot of topics because I haven't written for a while and there is actually much going on right now that I should
Oh, in case you’re interested, here
are the two articles that I was guided to by means of the lucky penny:
“Critical Research in Science Education.” In International Handbook of Science Education.
B. Fraser and K. Tobin (Eds) (1998). Boston: Kluwer Academic Publishers.
"Pinar's Currere and Identity in Hyperreality: Grounding the Post-formal Notion of Intrapersonal
Intelligence." In W. Pinar (Ed.) Curriculum: Toward New Identities. (1998). New York: Garland Press.
Time will tell why I was led to these particular articles; I’m sure there’s
important encoded knowledge in them and it will be revealed when the time is right. I was informed that they are two very
important "strands" of Joe's work.
base with my consort this morning about the issues presented in this blog—in particular, the way so many of us behind
the scenes are multi-tasking on many different projects and how I feel a bit overwhelmed at times and how my work is somewhat
fragmented. Of course,he reassured me, telling me that it will all come together soon and look much like magic when it
does (although we know the hard work that’s gone into it). When it does all come together it will represent the metaphoric
rising phoenix. He said there is “rhyme and reason” to what we’re doing. That’s his
way of providing reassurance while also slipping a music message into the blog to greatly expand consciousness. (I asked
him if he wanted to add anything to this blog, which I had written yesterday). Thus, I will see what YouTube brings to the
top with the key words, “rhyme and reason.”
Oh well oh
well so here we stand But we stand for nothing My heart calls to me in my sleep How can I turn to it 'Cause I'm all locked up in this Dark place - and I do not know I'm good as dead My head aches - warped
and tied up I need to kill this pain
clearly speaks to how so many of us on this planet do not know life; how we are living in a haze (hypereality as Joe has referred
to it in the above article I had synchronistically been guided to reading). Incidentally, he had some very important things
to say in that article which relates here. In Knowledge and Critical Pedagogy: An Introduction, Joe also discusses
how we have bought into the death (thanatos) instinct versus the love/life (eros) impulse. Far too many people turn to medication,
alcohol, drugs, or other means of escape, and these are not the answer, as the song conveys. I cringe when I see “experts”
promoting the use of drugs for accessing “higher consciousness” because it is only an illusion that will take
people off their natural path. We can find guidance to naturally accessing our higher consciousness in Joe’s
work and in the work that so many are doing quietly behind the scenes, slowly bringing it to the forefront. There is no panacea,
but seeking greater knowledge is the key. Working toward a balance of intellect, critical thought, emotion, intuition, heart,
love, imagination, passion, empathy, is the goal. There is no final destination. It’s a process.
must all do our own work to, first of all, forge a path back to our souls in order to make soul-to-soul connections, to understand
our evolving selves, to tell our stories and to “construct” (aka “create”) a better world. Joe named
it “Critical Constructivism” and it’s an eternal project. It’s a love project. It’s Eros Love.
And it will change the world.
what we’re here for—to change the world and make it a better place--more joyful, more loving, and as Joe always
put it, to alleviate suffering. As I have learned, Sanat-Eros and Venus Kumara’s Great Global Treasure Hunt contributes
to the process in very fun and engaging ways, and everyone has been invited.
as great a story as any. What is your story?
P.S. And speaking of treasure hunts and lucky pennies how’s this for a lucky penny? (I just "happened" upon this
article today). Actually, I prefer the gold that my N.E.W. Year's lucky penny led me to—and I will decode those articles
of Joe’soon! Just call me “obsessed” for being more moved by Joe’s articles than by $2.5 million
dollars. His theory leads to the REAL GOLD. Follow the yellow brick road.
The above are links to my blogs. I did not know at
the time of writing them, especially when I first began, that I was recording my Spiritual Journey of Ascension with Joe,
who is my Twin Flame (which I also did not know when I began this journey, but I have provided undeniable evidence in my dissertation and much more evidence since writing it). All I knew when I began this journey after Joe’s death (by which I had
been extremely traumatized) was that I was compelled to write the blogs, every day at first, and I seemed to have been getting
instructions from Joe and from “Above.” I did not understand how the Celestial Spirits were guiding us along our
journey nor the Power they have due to their Love connection to God (as Joe tells us over and over again in his work, there
is nothing more powerful than love). My connection to Joe connected me powerfully to his love and to God’s Love, through
the Holy Spirit. My experiences as recorded in the blogs proves what Joe has taught us about the power of love—over
and over again (I’m a slow learner, for which I feel sad. I was totally asleep when I met Joe and did not even believe
in soulmates. I hope you will not be as slow a learner as I have been). Nevertheless, what an amazing, beautiful journey it
has been! It’s full of adventure, mystery, learning about the world, learning about our past, present and future, and
engaging in super fun and sometime hilarious treasure hunts.
If you want to follow the path and connect to God’s
amazing Love, begin reading at the first link 2009.05.03 and move forward. You will learn a lot!!
I did. And there are millions of Celestial Spirits just waiting to serve as your personal teachers and guides. They want to
take you treasure hunting (they do know where the treasures are) and guide you along your own personal path just like they
did for me. I will not be writing any more blogs here because now I will be teaching Joe’s material “up above”
and continuing along yet another amazing path. You can follow along the next leg of our journey by clicking on the links to
the various courses, treasure hunt quests, etc. We are creating multiple paths now in multiple directions. Are you ready?
There is something for everyone! All you need to do is engage sincerely with seeking knowledge and spreading love
in the world, and then God’s magic will appear in your life too…no more suffering…only love, bliss, joy,
passionate engagement with learning—for everyone, infinitely and eternally. God is Good!! Check it out! 20160227-1330 Rewards Of Developing My Will To Love
