SUBCONSCIOUS AND SUPERCONSCIOUS

In this week's REDMOND'S REVIEW, Darren shares his thoughts on CS Lewis's book, "Spirits in Bondage A Cycle of Lyrics."

Subconscious and superconscious planes of mind are the subjects of REDMOND’S REVIEW this week.

SUBCONSCIOUS AND SUPERCONSCIOUS PLANES OF MIND

Written in 2017, “The Subconscious and Superconscious Planes of Mind” authored by William Walker Atkinson is wonderfully referenced by me as a genre that can be confidently titled, “rabbit hole reading”. This label is given by me to books or subject matter that does two things simultaneously. First, time seems not to exist in its normal fashion. Firstly, an hour could feel like 15 minutes when you are one with the books subject matter. Secondly, the book for me at least, led to search engine escapades for follow up and ancillary information.

In the most simplest of ways I could explain it, The book reviews and investigates our conscious and how it tends to operate and perform. Then, it dwells into the always murky but interesting subconscious. The author goes into great detail giving example after example of how our subconscious, to use a Wizard of Oz reference, is the “person behind the curtain.” Both passively and many times not so passively, it is controlling or “convincing” us to act or not act in a certain way. Atkinson then spends time in a logical and scholarly way, raising the question, do we ever really forget anything? Or, do we file it away in a place that is controlled normally by our subconscious?

A NEW LEVEL OF UNDERSTANDING?

What I really found interesting was the hypothesis regarding the superconscious. Could it be that a third level of consciousness exists? That it is actually arranged in such a way that much like DNA, we are passed down from our relatives, thoughts or impressions from the past are stored there? An example of this could be a great great grandparent, who walked into a room and had an emotional or deeply inquisitive impression, positively or negatively, that was “branded” (my word) into their Superconscious. Now, you forty or fifty decades later, walk into a similar room and suddenly have a sense of Déjà vu. Could that be the Superconscious at work? This book was what “rabbit hole reading” is all about.

YOUR VOICE – DARREN REDMOND

Darren Redmond presents "Your Voice."

“Your Voice” is written as an exclusive article from the heart of Darren Redmond.

YOUR VOICE

When I bring up a question about your voice and its origins do you know from which I ask? I can assure you I do not mean the name of a TV show. This does not mean the voice you have when you sing in your car, or the shower, or in your room when you are alone. I mean where is the voice that is YOU. My opinion is that we all have our own voice, as we all have a unique finger print. but it seems many of us wear “community gloves” that cover our unique finger print, or in this case, our voice.

Finding your own voice is not easy, their is no 2 minute YouTube video that can make that happen. How may one find something they may not know what it looks like or truly is? Your voice also changes so what you may pursue at 18, as your voice may be different at 40. But are you chasing your voice? Or, rather a imprinted voice that is not truly yours, but a sound you have chased for a variety of reasons.

THERE IS NO CRISIS

og: your
What is your voice? Is it produced as some form of “community gloves” or is it really you?

It is not a mid-life crisis, nor is it a perplexing question facing students as they move from school to the working world. It is not anything else but finding ones self. But, how do you find something that you see and feel and talk to every day? (yes, my friends, we do talk to ourselves every day). Yet, sometimes, it feels like a suit we are wearing and nothing more.

PUTTING ON APPEARANCES?

Are we here to get by or to pursue the best we can be? That voice inside you, many times gets silenced by the noise around you. How to vote, how to think, how to react, may be some reasons. And, what you should be happy with, what you should share, what you should keep are other reasons. Of all of these decisions, do you make them from the voice in you, or rather a voice that comes to you from elsewhere? The beliefs that you grew up with, learned and believed in; did an outside voice tell you not to listen to things you grew up with? Or, was it to question everything, but then tell you to only listen to them?

LISTENING TO OTHERS INSTEAD OF YOUR VOICE

Are you listening to a millionaire singer tell you to be there for the every man and having enough and share the rest, who lives in a huge home, but, will not allow you to down load his or her music? And has armed guards all around them while singing this? If your voice tells you to listen, then that is great indeed; however, are you listening to some one else, while not hearing YOUR VOICE? The musician metaphor works, but many will do this. Who made the rule that you are too old to learn to dance? Or, go back to school? Maybe, dress a certain way, or to build a business ? That is their voice; it is not yours. Free will and freedom allows you to make a choice listen to them, or ignore them.

ARE YOU HEARING YOURSELF?

Your voice may not scream. But, rather, sitting silently, your voice may allow you to start hearing it. I am of the opinion that many times for what ever social reasons, we often do not allow ourselves to hear our wants and desires for fulfillment in who we are. Family, friends and commitments are all important and variables to listening to your voice are valid. But, your voice is helping you become the best person you can be, as any one who has gone through a 12 step program has conveyed to me. Your voice allows all those who rely on you to benefit, as well.

IT DOES NOT TAKE A VILLAGE

It takes a village to raise a child is not something I have ever agreed with. Rather, to me, it takes a village to look after each other. But, it takes a parent or guardian to set the best examples they can along with the child who becomes an adult, understanding who they are and where that voice brings them. To me, Screw-tape and the example given to us by C.S Lewis of him is alive and well. Your voice steers you away from Screw-tape. Anyone who tells you you are not unique and special has started to muffle the voice with in you.

We may be based on variables and scenarios around us. To settle to be one of the many box cars on the train which we all belong to, but, if it is your choice, based on your decision, that is YOUR VOICE. No one has the right to limit you based on any factor. If your voice tells you to sing..SING.. IF you want to own property, do so. If your voice tells you to help the homeless, do so and do it with passion. Your voice is who you are. It is not who others tell you to be.

BE YOUR VOICE

Following your voice does not make you selfish. Rather, it is selfish of society, to tell YOU how to act or be. as long as you are not breaking any law. You have the right to pursue happiness, but, there is no guarantee to actually achieve it. Nowhere is it written that your happiness needs to be mandated by the collective. Because, your voice is yours and belongs to just you.

CONTRAILS OVER CENTRAL CALIFORNIA

This contrail image was taken towards the west on Saturday, January 11th. The atmospheric view extends from central California to the coastal area of the Pacific Ocean.

Contrails over central California are quite common. But, during certain times of the year they are not. This is one of those times. On occasion they seem a bit more numerous, but it is due to atmospheric conditions, by and large. This article identifies a certain anomaly that was out of the norm for a location this author has observed for almost 30 years.

CONTRAILS ARE NOT CHEM-TRAILS

Sorry to disappoint conspiracy theorists, but what you are about to read is resultant from hours of objective, concise research. In fact, this has been a past-tense interest from even the research of those famous individuals such as Jim Marrs.

We experienced an incredible aerial situation in the afternoon of January 11, 2020. There were an incredible number of contrails in our sky on Saturday. This author checked air traffic reports and this day was not consistent with such events during a normal day during this time.

SUDDEN RAIN IN FIVE DAYS AFTER CONTRAILS

og: weather
This is a daily calendar of weather activity courtesy of weather .com, in our locale. The day of the rain deluge came suddenly Thursday afternoon, January 16th.

The source of the above report came from weather.com. It indicated a sunny forecast. But, we received less than twelve hours notice that any rain was coming. During the early afternoon of this past Thursday, January 16th, there was no thunder. There was a gentle rain with subsequent wind gusts of up to 60 mph. We got over four-tenths of an inch of rain in just two hours.

Since the occurrence of the contrails no more have been observed.

IMAGE GALLERY TO THE WEST

What kind of aircraft have been observed? Well, central California is humorously called, ‘fly-over’ country. The occasional contrails usually observed are from commercial jetliners carrying passengers. From points north and south, contrails follow a longitudinal pathway in both directions.

Military air traffic was considered. On rare occasion, there is such traffic. But, the contrails observed are usually circular or curved during training flights. There is a naval air base located fifty miles to the west. There was nothing scheduled for this day. Further, the last air show occurred in late 2019.

IMAGE GALLERY OVERHEAD

The following images were taken from overhead. Some were close up images.

Yes, contrails have been observed overhead, on occasion. Certain times of the year they are more commonly seen than at other times. When the overall humidity is very low, planes and jets can fly over the valley without being noticed. Still, almost all the images were in a north-south position. Some contrails had some crisscross patterns.

THE B-47 STRATOJET

Since it is becoming better known of the long history of cloud seeding to help bring rain to arid areas of earth, this author will skip that lesson. Being more interested in what is presently considered as most useful to seed silver iodide and other chemicals (such as calcium chloride, dry ice, and other salts) in such regions, the B-47 has been in the news.

I failed to find a particular article that peaked my interest about this subject just a few days before this rain event occurred. However, it showed a B-47 flying with smoke trailing behind the craft. But, after more digging it was discovered the aircraft pictured was only taking off with rocket-assisted engines.

STRATOJET USED FOR CLOUD SEEDING

What was most interesting to find was the B-47 was never outfitted with gunnery. Its primary purpose was for atmospheric research. After its first test flights in 1948, it was used for meteorological studies of clouds. But, after more reading, it seems it is going to engage in cloud-seeding to create rain.

Hence, this is my supposition that we observed an actual rain event due to a purposeful seeding of the atmosphere right here in California. Frankly, it is a logical assumption. It is also well-founded to attempt to bring more rain where it is most needed. California farms food for 1/3 of this nation, as well as, for other nations, too.

There are tests with other aircraft being used in Australia. As many may know, the country is enduring a serious drought situation.

THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

In a recent article, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) were conducting cloud seeding activity. Suddenly, a three-day deluge of rain drenched them. Subsequently, Iran blamed the UAE for causing flooding rains in their country. With the political climate the way it is in the world right now, I find it a bit humorous, but they were seeding at the time.

og: contrails
Here is a recent view of an Arab Emirates jet preparing to seed cloud formations with a concoction of chemicals to produce rain.

Here is the article: https://www.thenational.ae/uae/environment/enough-rumours-cloud-seeding-had-nothing-to-do-with-uae-s-three-day-rain-storm-1.963753

SUMMARY OF CONTRAILS

With all the above being stated, this author wants to stress that how the rain event occurred was not logical. Where we live in central California, weather reports are quite accurate and usually have a 3-day or more window to alert us. This was not the case. Again, what prompted my interest was an article to which I did not pay much attention. It simply claimed cloud seeding would be underway very soon. Then, we all saw the unusual contrails.

Was this a coincidence? Perhaps. But, once a bit of research started about what and how all this fits, there was a common denominator here. Frankly, it is only logical to help in any way possible to have more rainfall where we live. And, it was not a state-wide event.

In summation, your thoughts are most welcome. It may have been a coincidence, but…

PERCEPTION: A PERSPECTIVE

Perception

Perception – The ability to see, hear, or become aware of something through the senses – The normal limits to human perception.

og: Perception
Perception – Reality

When reading the above basic definition of perception, I, personally, ‘perceive’ (pun intended), it as being rather vague in meaning, lacking descriptive value. It means so much more.

The term, normal limits to human perception is vague of and within itself. Unarguably, ‘normal’ and ‘limits’ can be ‘perceived’ in various ways by various individuals. What is the norm and is there a limit? Don’t get me wrong, the definition is correct in meaning. But being a deep thinker, I choose to dissect it’s meaning even further.

Our entire lives are based upon what we perceive. Not only by what we see, but what we experience and how we react to those experiences. Each reaction unique to and within itself. The perception itself is constant and the angles by which we perceive it are many. Most tend to view what they perceive from an external angle. But, how about the perception from within?

For example, most individuals tend to concentrate on their outer appearance. Their physical being, going the the gym, exercising, staying healthy, without even thinking about exercising their minds, as well. After all, the mind is where all perception is processed and a healthy mind is as equally important as a healthy physical condition. Perhaps even more so, whereas what our minds dictate, our bodies must endure.

From birth and throughout childhood, our outer perception undoubtedly has an enormous impact on what type of individuals we may be forged into by the environment in which we are brought up. This fact beckons the need to explore and perceive who we really are as individuals from within. Upon becoming adults, we must explore who we really are as individuals and what contributions we will decide to make to the world and others around us.

By becoming familiar with your inner-self, great benefits may surface. The first step being to believe in yourself and whatever it may be that you stand for. Meditation is a good way to start. Once connected to your inner-source, the possibilities become limitless.

Though most perception manifests through an external source, it is critical to rationalize that all feelings, decisions and reactions to that very perception come from within. Why you may ask? Because that is where the real you lies, from deep within. It may take some doing, but at least attempt to become familiar with the real you from within your internal source. Once accomplished, you may come to the conclusion that all else around you is merely an illusion.
