The Four Fold Way

When I read The Four Fold Way I saw myself in its mirror and understood that my default way of operating was more feral than domesticated, and that what some people appreciated about me and/or desired for themselves was a more natural, empowered and flexible state of being. I see now what I couldn’t see then: many–maybe even most–people in western culture today have been subjected to conditioning via systems and worldviews that mute and can even overwrite aspects of natural intelligence (NI). This imposter intelligence (II) acts against authenticity, natural four-body health and right living. It makes us unwell. We move into states of being closed, negative, self-deprecating, stingy, competitive, controlling, dramatic, performative or invisible, to name a few. We become unable to discern authenticity from performance and deception to claim our own lifeforce to self-author, rely and propel.

Natural Intelligence

Coming of Age at the Beginning of the World

Wetiko is a mind virus that is a stunted half-life program inserted into human psyches via information broadcast throughout the systems of the old dead world. The more mainframe schooling, rituals and medicalization we’ve taken in, the more mainframe television and movies we watch, the more government control and theft that we accept in violationContinue reading “Coming of Age at the Beginning of the World”
