The Limitation of Words

 
For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart. There I travel, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length. And there I travel looking, looking, breathlessly. 
Yaqui Sorcerer don Juan Matus

As I write this blog, I again struggle with transcending the insidious and ultimately fatally flawed use of words to express anything in any sort meaningful way. I have traveled down this path within the unfathomably mysterious universe long enough to reject the notion that pure reflection, reading the wisdom of others in search of hidden insights, or trying to make sense of it all through the expression of language will lead me to any sort of direct and personal understanding.

It is experience itself that enables one to move beyond the limitations of those who claim to have essential answers to life's largest questions. When we have our own experiences we find that there truly is no truth - only perception. Each perception, then, has the potential to offer magnificent insight into the worlds that lie beyond the limitation of words that were previously used to describe a particular experience. When we release ourselves from the use of words we discover that we have the ability to move freely into deeper realms of worlds unseen.

I have reached a point in life where I look back and realize that most of the teachings I have followed have now become superfluous. Once upon a time each served me well along the path of understanding, but I realize it is now time to move beyond the teachings to actualize the lessons learned. The Buddha implored his students to remember... to re-member the self... to come into awareness of the ever-present field of consciousness from which we all emerged into form... to re-member or merge with the omnipresent source of consciousness within. It is here we find the indescribable power that moves us.

Immersing oneself in this singular point of awareness focuses one's orientation on unbending intent and impeccable action. We reach a point along the path in which we have outgrown the rhetoric, where we become trapped if we do not abandon the social construct we have become all too comfortable with. When we finally discover we have aligned with someone else's story, the warrior within screams for liberation.

There is no truth, ultimately. The world shows me this at every turn. Only perception. If every path is a path of evolution, I wonder if I have reached a critical sign-post along that path, or perhaps even reached the end of it. I sense my evolution is far from concluded, however, but that the tools I have been using have become worn and no longer serve me well. Perhaps such tools are no longer required once one has integrated the lessons learned and re-membered the pure consciousness from which we have emerged.

The silent knowledge I increasingly perceive lies completely beyond my capacity to express by the written or spoken word. The ancient masters insisted that anything truly “of the spirit” - anything inspired – can only be actualized as a personal experience, beyond the intellectual expression of the written or spoken word. When one encounters the power within, it is so immeasurable and indescribable that the only expression remaining is humility in the lap of pure consciousness.

Humbly, then, I continue to attempt to put onto words the magnificent discoveries I wish to share.

Life as a Sigma

 
I took an online test to see where I belong in the overall socio-sexual hierarchy. With tongue in cheek, I've often taunted that I am the alpha in the room, but have implicitly understood there was more to it than that. The test, only for men, is a series of thirteen questions that determines whether a man could best be typed as an Alpha, Beta, Delta, Gamma, Sigma, or Omega male. The test achieved a certain credibility when its results confirmed my suspicion that I am, indeed, a Sigma male.

There are not a lot of us – perhaps only one percent of all men; they are the rarest “type” of man. So I thought I would look at some of the defining characteristics of Sigma males to perhaps further refine my own self-understanding. Generally speaking, Sigma males do what they want, live the life they want, and are not affected by the opinions of others; they neither want to dominate others nor are they willing to take orders. Simply put, the Sigma male is a rare breed who loves dancing to the beat of his own drum. Perhaps that explains my lifelong fascination with another Sigma, Henry David Thoreau.

And then, there is my frequently being compared to Clint Eastwood throughout life, in appearance and mannerisms - another Sigma. There have been plenty of leading men in Hollywood that are Sigmas; they make great protagonists, and great antagonists; mysterious, charismatic, rebellious, self-reliant, and attractive, all: Harrison Ford, Vin Diesel, Forest Whitaker, John Snow, Viggo Mortensen, Eric Bana, Timothy Dalton, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Craig, James Dean, Steve McQueen, Brad Pitt, Sylvester Stallone, Christian Bale, and so on; others include Steve Jobs, Leonardo da Vinci, Giacomo Cassanova, David Bowie, Kilian Jornet, and Orson Wells.

Sigma males can succeed in any environment. They control their own destiny and believe they are responsible for their own actions and outcomes. Sigmas share many of the same qualities with alpha males, such as self confidence, but they tend to be way more introverted and do not thrive on social attention. They do not want to be a leader as an alpha does, and often shun social groups. Whereas Alphas can make friends with anyone and intimately understand social hierarchies and alliances, Sigmas go their own way and usually form very close friendships with few people which tend to last a lifetime.

Sigmas do not acknowledge the social hierarchy or pay it any attention, which can be frustrating for Alphas because they tend to look them in the eye and show that they have no interest in the Alphas social status or any respect for it. It is also frustrating to Alphas that Sigmas are very attractive to women solely on the basis of their intrinsic worth – looks and personality - nothing to do with status or money. High functioning and intelligent Sigmas will seek to get out of the hierarchy as much as possible by finding their own source of income that doesn’t involve having to perform a conventional job.

Sigma males have a characteristic nomadic lifestyle, never settling at any one place for very long. They love to go to new locations where nobody knows them, so they can avoid formalities. Stability isn’t for Sigmas because they have to move. They generally choose a career that gives them financial independence but doesn’t hinder their nomadic lifestyle, often pursuing a career that allows them to travel, explore and enjoy instead of sitting in an office cubicle, taking orders from a boss.

Such a lifestyle is one without attachment. It tends to have a minimalist approach, with little waste on things or people, so there is rarely a need to take responsibility for property and other people. Moving about a lot eliminates the need to justify one's lifestyle to anyone. The Sigma wanders around places gathering experiences and enjoying life as it comes. It is the story that matters most, making such a lifestyle very appealing to women.

Sigmas seem driven by principles and age-old ideals. They are sensitive, intuitive, and generally good listeners. Alpha males may be driven by societal norms, but sigmas are driven by a set of ancient rules, ancient values, and long-standing traditions.

There can be a downside to being a Sigma, however. We can take introversion too far and become socially isolated, even experiencing periods of intense loneliness if we spend too much time alone and don’t actively approach others. Sigmas overall do best when they force themselves to have social contact and stay in touch regularly with their closest friends.

Just Be Yourself

I sometimes wonder whether I personally could do more to contribute to a more accelerated collective awakening in this uncertain time of ascentive transition. The general feedback I have been receiving from my angels is to just remain calm at all times, centered in love, with faith that we each move the world by example. All I need to do is be the best me I can be, without a hint of fear, trusting that the universe is unfolding just as it should. We each plant a seed in the world with those we encounter by our words and our actions; that is all that anyone needs to do; it then is up to other souls to germinate that seed at a time decided upon by those souls. Below, I copy a confirmation of this idea with a pointed message from off-world entities that interact with us from a higher perspective. Their words of wisdom resonate wih everything else I am receiving these days.

        As we witness you interacting with your fellow humans, we see that they respond to your energy much more than they respond to your beliefs. You have much more of an effect on people than you realize, whether you say anything at all. You are walking transmitters of a higher frequency vibration. You take downloads that you receive from us and beings like us, and you share them with others. Those downloads then can rest in one of your fellow human’s energy fields until that person is ready for it. But you don’t have to preach. You don’t have to write a manifesto. You don’t have to make a YouTube video about ascension or how to heal the world. You just have to be yourselves.

        This is the primary mission that you have that goes beyond all the other missions. If you are yourself, you will get exactly what you need, in terms of circumstances in your lives, to ascend. If you are yourselves, you will be the perfect ones to help your fellow humans to awaken and ascend. There is no need to try. There is no need to put on airs or some kind of facade about what it means to be a spiritual person in this day and age. You just have to be honest and authentic, and people will want to know what your secret is.

        And the beautiful part is you don’t even have to tell them. You don’t even have to be a good orator to share what you know about ascension, what you know about being awake. You just have to continue to be yourselves, and let everything else be taken care of for you. Let us do all the heavy lifting. Let us figure out exactly what the people you interact with are going to need in the near future, and you all just relax, be yourselves, feel your feelings, and do your best. That’s all we can ask of you, and that’s all your higher selves are asking of you as well.

Ivermectin

There is an active and bitter debate going on right now as to whether the drug Ivermectin is a successful treatment for Covid-19. Some doctors are seemingly throwing caution to the wind and writing prescriptions for Ivermectin as a treatment protocol for their patients infected with the novel Covid-19 virus. Many report remarkable success stories. So what's the debate about?

The counter-argument is generally that Ivermectin is strictly for the treatment of parasites in animals... but there are literally dozens of off-label uses with peer-reviewed studies than demonstrate the broad efficacy of this drug for humans. It is already known to kill 22 different viruses. This was testified to in front of Congress in December of 2020 by qualified and competent medical authorities. It cures the flu. Some report the quick turn-around of Covid symptoms with its use. It probably cures smallpox and polio too; probably even Ebola and malaria. The people who created it were awarded a Nobel Prize. Over 4 billion doses of it have already been given to humans for various treatments with remarkable success... and it has the lowest death rate per dose of any drug that you can suggest over the last century. Furthermore, it is virtually impossible to overdose on it, so that when all things are considered it may be one of the safest things you can take for any viral infection.

Those receiving Ivermectin who have been infected with the virus or treated with one of the vaccines with spiked proteins and graphene oxide are finding that the drug is binding itself to these two foreign agents and flushing them out of the body through the gut, no matter what tissues throughout the body they have become embedded in.

Ivermectin is an interesting substance, derived from a source never before tapped as an aid to humans. Its creators looked at the enzymatic products of nematodes in the soil; they studied what these enzymes were doing to the surrounding area of the soil and came up with powerful medicine for humans. Perhaps its greatest potential benefit may be its use as a cure for cancer.

Scientists have been taking cancer patients, treating them with Ivermectin, and discovering the quick and total eradication of nascent cancer cells throughout the body. Initial findings are that it erodes tumors in a safe way. The highlights of a report in ScienceDirect.com are as follows:

• Ivermectin effectively suppresses the proliferation and metastasis of cancer cells and promotes cancer cell death at doses that are nontoxic to normal cells.

• Ivermectin shows excellent efficacy against conventional chemotherapy drug-resistant cancer cells and reverses multidrug resistance.

• Ivermectin combined with other chemotherapy drugs or targeted drugs has powerful effects on cancer.

• The structure of cross-talk centered on PAK1 kinase reveals the mechanism by which ivermectin regulates multiple signaling pathways.

• Ivermectin has been used to treat parasitic diseases in humans for many years and can quickly enter clinical trials for the treatment of tumors.

Their supporting Abstract reads as follows:

Ivermectin is a macrolide anti-parasitic drug with a 16-membered ring that is widely used for the treatment of many parasitic diseases such as river blindness, elephantiasis and scabies. Satoshi Omura and William C. Campbell won the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for the discovery of the excellent efficacy of ivermectin against parasitic diseases. Recently, ivermectin has been reported to inhibit the proliferation of several tumor cells by regulating multiple signaling pathways. This suggests that ivermectin may be an anticancer drug with great potential.

Ivermectin has powerful anti-tumor effects, including the inhibition of proliferation, metastasis, and angiogenic activity, in a variety of cancer cells. This may be related to the regulation of multiple signaling pathways by ivermectin through PAK1 kinase. On the other hand, ivermectin promotes programmed cancer cell death, including apoptosis, autophagy and pyroptosis. Ivermectin induces apoptosis and autophagy is mutually regulated. Interestingly, ivermectin can also inhibit tumor stem cells and reverse multi-drug resistance and exerts the optimal effect when used in combination with other chemotherapy drugs.

We all need to question, question, question further whenever either the authorities or the media object to or attempt to regulate against the use of this drug without a reasonable, scientific-based explanation, and demand support of their argument.

The Purpose of Life

NAC

N-acetylcysteine or NAC is the amino acid cysteine with an acetyl group attached to it, chemically speaking. The acetyl group makes the NAC readily absorbable by the body, enabling it to be therefore distributed throughout the body. N-acetylcysteine is not found in the foods we eat, however; it has to be ingested through oral supplementation. So what are its health benefits? N-acetylcysteine is an antioxidant and a precursor to essential intracellular glutathione synthesis. As an acteylated form of cysteine it is one of the three precursors of the body's glutathione synthesis. Cysteine is the rate-limiting factor in glutathione synthesis, however, since the other glutathione precursors, glycine and glutamic acid, are found abundantly in the body.

What is so important about glutathione? Glutathione is the number one antioxidant in cells. Virtually all cells need glutathione to function in a healthful manner. It is the body's master antioxidant and detoxifier, and as such, it has been found to reduce intracellular inflammation, which is ultimately the root cause of all disease.

Why take NAC instead of glutathione itself? Because oral glutathione is poorly absorbed by the body, and even if it could pass through the stomach and intestines, it would not enter the cells where it is needed. The glutathione molecule itself is too big. This is why instead of taking glutathione directly, N-acetylcysteine is taken. NAC is readily converted to cysteine, the essential precursor of glutathione. By itself, cysteine is not very soluble in water, and is not easily absorbed by the intestines. This is why, in order to boost intracellular glutathione, the acetylated form of cysteine, or N-acetylcysteine, is taken. N-acetylcysteine readily enters cells where it is then converted to cysteine. It is this cysteine that is used then in the production of glutathione inside the cells.

What are the uses of N-acetylcysteine? N-acteylcysteine is used in hospitals as an antidote to acetaminophen poisoning. NAC is also used to improve the symptoms and recurrences in people with chronic bronchitis. This is due to NAC's ability to break down mucus. In fact, NAC has been used as a mucolytic drug for more than 30 years.

NAC has also been found to prevent influenza (flu) infections at a 1200 mg daily dosage. A study of 268 subjects was conducted in 1997 about the effect of long-term N-acetylcysteine treatment on influenza and influenza-like episodes. In the study, the subjects were given either a placebo or two daily doses of 600mg NAC for 6 months. Those given NAC had significantly reduced influenza-like symptoms.

Another use of NAC is in treating liver failure from causes other than acetaminophen poisoning. Hepatitis is an example of liver failure where supplementation shows promise. Furthermore, NAC has been found to reduce the inflammatory symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. A study shows that N-acetylcysteine helps protect the lungs by its antioxidant action as well as its role as a precursor to the master antioxidant glutathione.

The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is caused by a virus (SARS-Cov-2) and is known for inducing multi-system organ dysfunction associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Current orthodox therapeutic strategies for COVID-19 have by and large failed to effectively reduce the mortality rate, especially for elderly patients. The recently developed vaccines against SARS-Cov-2 have been reported to induce the production of neutralizing antibodies in young volunteers, but these vaccines have shown but limited benefit in the elderly, suggesting an age-dependent immune response. As a result, exploring new applications of existing medications like NAC could potentially provide valuable treatments for COVID-19.

NAC has antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, as well as immune-modulating characteristics that may prove beneficial in the ultimate treatment and prevention of SARS-Cov-2.  N-acetylcysteine has been used in clinical practice to treat critically ill septic patients, and more recently for COVID-19 patients. It has been successful in aiding the detoxification of graphene oxide and nano-particles for not only those who have been vaccinated, but for those who are around others who have been infected or vaccinated who are shedding these damaging factors from their bodies into the surrounding environment.
