If I – A Philosophical Stand Up Comedy

“I feel like everything in reality can change with just a subtle shift in perspective”

Demetri Martin is an interesting character, a philosophical comedian who takes ideas and concepts, and breaks them down, mixes them around, and shows the relationships between things that otherwise you likely would never have known they were there.

This sketch of his is both entertaining, and inspires creative thought! Enjoy.

The Emotional Control Switch: Why Nothing You Do to Feel Better Ever Works

It is time to become aware of this emotional control switch when it goes off within us. The time has come to recognize ourselves resisting our own emotion the moment it arises.

This affect is the beginning of a downward spiral. Our emotions will work like a chain reaction where we struggle against them and end up being rolled over.

If we are in a situation where we feel like nothing ever works and like we will never feel better no matter how hard we try, it is because we are approaching our life from that very angle… that we must feel better because negative emotion is not ok. Anxiety is not ok, anger is not ok, sadness is not ok, grief is not ok. The way we feel is bad and so it has to change.

“It is normal to want to feel good. The basic survival instinct is to shy away from pain and go towards pleasure. This is not in and of itself a problem. Suffering is caused when instead of going towards pleasure, we resist the pain. And this, is what we have done with emotion” Continue reading

Helping Heal Hatred: The Secret Cause of Hate

Typically, hatred is seen as a negative and therefore unacceptable thing in our society. But hatred is a valid feeling, and when we deem something as bad and unacceptable to feel, we resist it within ourselves. And in a universe based on the law of attraction, whatever we resist persists. Instead of denying our hatred, we need to admit it to ourselves.

When we feel hatred and peel back that hatred to expose the more vulnerable emotions underneath it. Only then can we end hatred in ourselves and therefore end it in the world.

“Hatred is a cover emotion for fear and hurt. So address the fear and hurt directly then focus on things that cause you to feel empowered and safe and watch the hatred melt away. “

In Response to the Facebook Hacking

Wow. What a day yesterday was.

From approximately 8am till about 4pm the Spirit Science Facebook page was used as a weapon to post mindless garbage to everyone… Nonstop, relentlessly, every minute. This is the 3rd time this has happened.

Every time it happens I feel as though the pain and turmoil of everyone affected flows through me with a raw vengeance. My entire energy goes south, I feel the pain and sorrow of people caused when people see Spirit Science posting porn, garbage, or otherwise the most insulting content imaginable for a whole day…

It’s like, imagine that you have a child (whether you do or don’t) and you are forced to watch it be tortured for hours and hours, without ANYTHING you can do to stop it, but pray and hope that some other authorities can come in and help you get your child back before its been entirely dismantled.

That was my day yesterday.

It was rough.

From my observation of the experience, there are 5 kinds of people out there who participated in the whole affair.

crowdofpeepsThe first 2 are the ones who participated only through observation. They saw it happening, but didn’t comment. The first kind just straight up didn’t care or notice whatsoever. The second noticed, understood what was happening, maybe sent a prayer towards it “I hope it gets resolved soon”, and moved on with their day.

The third were the people who genuinely thought it was Spirit Science posting garbage, didn’t notice it was garbage, and earnestly joined in to support the garbage posts with comments like “Yeah!! I love watching diseased ugly humans and ridiculing them for their tragedies!” 

I got a little mad at these people.

The fourth were those who genuinely thought it was Spirit Science posting garbage, and blamed us for turning to the dark side. There were SO MANY nasty comments from people who would claim they were good of heart, insulting me and the entire creation of Spirit Science because we’ve thrown in the towel and just decided to destroy everything we have worked so hard to create by posting trash…

I also got mad at these people. For all of the claims that they were so spiritually aware, they couldn’t figure out that there was any sort of hackery afoot.

And finally, the fifth group… were the ones who gave me hope.

These were the ones who saw what was happening, and then went out of their way to say “hey everyone, they’ve obviously been hacked!”

These people were very quickly silenced by the temporary evil overlord Admin of the Spirit Science Facebook, who would go out of their way to ban and punish anyone who spoke out against him.

It was quite a sight to behold.

All of our accounts were banned as well, in our attempts to communicate on the page that indeed, we had been hacked.

Now, there was also a 6th group, that has gone unmentioned, and a 7th, for that matter.

The 6th were my close friends who also run various facebook pages. Sam from Higher Perspective, Kasim from Educate Inspire Change, Sam from Sungazing, Sean from Expanded Consciousness, and Chris from Sustainable Human, also, my friends Tyler, Dan, and Mitame, and of course, Ray and Lexie.  They worked very hard and diligently in everything from hunting down the source of the hack to communicating with Facebook people they knew to try and get the page back quicker. It is because of them that the hack is not continuing right now, as you read this.

And finally, the 7th, were those people at Facebook… whoever, or wherever they are. I have no idea, but they helped solve the problem, and I am so grateful for it. Without them, well, I guess there’d be no Facebook to be hacked… but It would also have been a disaster had they not worked so hard on it. So thank you – to everyone who had a part in returning Spirit Science to its former and future state… Thank you.

There is no way that I can truly show my gratitude other than to strive to do great things with this page, and Spirit Science as a whole. And I will. I promise.

And so, moving forward… I would like to take a moment to announce a new, vortex based Schedule for Facebook that will be the basis of our digital operations for the coming cycles.

Facebook Schedule New

It looks like this, and if you’d like to read more about it, you can read all about it right here.

The Spiritual Purpose of… Ecosexuality

Science has already proven that hugging a tree can be beneficial to your health (http://www.trueactivist.com/science-proves-hugging-trees-is-good-for-health/). But, have you ever had the urge to take your relationship with mother nature to the next level? If so, you may be an Ecosexual.

Ecosexuality Image 1

Ecosexual is a term coined by Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens, who, during their seven year Love Art Laboratory project, staged ecosexual weddings between themselves and the earth, the sky, the sea, the moon, the mountains, and other various elements and entities throughout the nonhuman world. Since then, the practice has drawn many more people who share the urge for intimacy with the natural world, and who may even be “turned on” by it.

When I first learned of this term, and of the people whom it describes, I was very excited. As the creator of sexual wellness products made of crystal, I know what it is to benefit from the beauty and sensuality that is stored within our earth. But I had to ask myself, could I really become aroused by the mud, the water, the sun?

I thought back to the time I tried psychedelic drugs at a friend’s house in Santa Cruz. We were outside, naked, and I happened to sit down on a haystack. I remember first moving my hands around on the hay. It felt so tingly and sensually gratifying  even though it was just a pile of fucking rough hay. Then, I started to notice how great it felt on my thighs and butt as well. So good, in fact, I had to take a few minutes from writing this article just to mentally relive the experience. Needless to say, it wasn’t difficult for me to understand the desire that ecosexuals feel. Sexual energy is an energy just like any other energy. If I remove my preconceptions about what sex is or should be, and imagine myself feeling the warmth of the sun drenching my body in vitamin d; if I imagine myself bathing in nutrient-rich mud, or swimming naked in a lake; it is easy to see the inherent sexuality of communion with nature.

Of course, Ecosexuality is about more than just about dry-humping grass. It’s about respecting and dedicating oneself to preserving our ecosystem. The Ecosex Manifesto written by Annie Sprinkle and Elizabeth Stephens will explain:

Though I may call myself more eco“sensual” than ecosexual, I love the extra bit of romanticism that this term lends to, for lack of a better term, tree-hugging.

The Hidden Truth About Racism

We are moving in the direction of a socially unified world.  Races are expressions of consciousness.  They are perspectives.  They are not who anyone is.  But in today’s modern world, discussion about race has become taboo.  As a result, we cannot have the crucial conversations we need to have in order to create a socially unified world.  The time has come to make the topic of race and racism, no longer taboo.

What has never been talked about before is the fact that pain is not just felt by the person on the receiving end of racism.  In fact the root of racism is pain.  We do not develop resistance to a specific race unless we feel as if that race is a threat.  So the question we need to be asking is, what is the perceived threat?  What pain is hiding behind each specific case of racism?  Until we address this pain, we will find no resolution.  But if we find this root and begin to directly address the perceived pain that caused the racism in the first place, we can actually create resolution.

Like it or not, we all hold racial stereotypes.   If we can face these stereotypes and admit to the pain behind them on both sides, racism could actually become a thing of the past.

If the mind assigns meaning to racial stereotypes that causes the being to feel threatened, prejudice, discrimination and antagonism is the result”
