Trauma, denial, distortion of reality and projection of ones flaws on others and outside world.

We live in a world full of all sorts of #abusive behavior some directed toward others and by lashing out at the outside world(society). Some people indulge in reckless behavior; others in bad eating habits or harmful #drug #addictions. Collectively groups of people will get #angry and irrational and often countries will be propelled by this #anger to lash out at other country militarily without first coolly evaluating how to rationally work out their differences. In a world like this trauma will occur an awful lot with the psychological problems that come with it. The cycle of #abuse will continue as the #trauma even when healed physically will often leave #psychological scars and the #denial that comes with not wanting to face the deep #emotions that come with them. This denial and the distortion of reality that comes with it leads to a continuation of abusive behavior in this world. We all are abusive to some degree,since no one is perfect! But, we have a very high level of abusive behavior on this spiritually backward planet that needs to be addressed in order for us to develop the spiritual maturity to deal with the intense problems that living in a very technological advance world presents to us!

    Our spiritual programming determines how well we are able to face reality at its most challenging! If we have spiritual beliefs that tune of out of or devalue part of the reality we exist in, we will weaken our ability to tune into and cope with this reality. Seeing reality from all sides and angles is not easy to do! People often like to see only the part of reality that they are comfortable with based on where they are at psychologically and the impact of past trauma on them. One can not heal and grow further spiritually if one does not face ones flaws and the spiritual theories one has that tend to be supportive of the view of reality ones currently accepts. When ever one spiritually distorts reality one will suffer self abuse and also will be abusive of others. One can feel really justified in being abusive as a result of the denial that becomes part of ones psychology and spiritual state of being.
     One can not advance further spiritually if one is not willing to see ones spiritual/psychological problems and the #spiritual theories that underpin them. If one is locked into some spiritual beliefs as a result of them being supportive of the state of denial that comes with not facing and healing the spiritual/emotional impact of past trauma, it can be quite difficult to advance to a healthier level spiritually! When someone tries to reach these people with the strong spiritual energy and spiritual theories required to help them to heal they will often lash out at that person no matter how rational their presentation is. Irrationality and the distortion of reality is often part of those who have suffered abuse or trauma and not healed psychologically from it. Arrogance and an inability to face ones spiritual shortcomings is what prevents people from being receptive to the type of spiritual help they need. One can not help someone spiritually until they feel that they could benefit from such help. Often it takes a really challenging situation in their life and the hard lessons that come with it to get people to really see their shortcomings and want to spiritually #heal and improve their understanding of reality in a way that will prevent future hard lessons of the same type from happening again!
     The truth is most often in the complicated middle and requires one is able to see things from many angles and sides. One can through really challenging spiritual #meditation type training gain a stronger spiritual grip on reality and enable one to better handle the pain/struggle that often comes with getting more of a grip on reality and the truth that comes with this. #Pain is part of life and must be faced in order to gain more spiritual maturity and connection with reality. Once one has obtained an ability to handle a heavier dose of reality, then one will develop the #intuition required to sense which people are reliable/serious sources and thus become better at determining what sources are unreliable or not solid enough or have a feel to them that do not gibe with your sense of how #reality actually works.

Why I am able to do things spiritually others are not able to!

1.  I was born with limited visual memory(good at core structural visuals only) . Also had related limited finer motor skills(one can not do what one can not visualize doing).

2.  Compensated for limitations with creativity and intuition to help me handle all the many situations in life I faced with a lack of visual familiarity. This helped me to become really aware spiritually, an area I was born with a lot of natural ability in.

3.  Did play creatively in the spiritual starting at an early age, but not in a way very different from other people. Did play around creatively with trying to develop a new astrology system, but not much differently than a lot of other astrologers  did. Also did push my limits with aerobic exercise as well as experimented with meditative techniques, but not in a way that really made me stand out that much from others. BUT, This all changed in March, 1992 at the age of 40. Then when trying to reach the public with my ideas I felt the extreme pressure that come with presenting anything really different to the media and public and after 2 resulting near death experiences, that I know only someone as determined as me could have survived, I was willing to really focus on moving in a direction no one else would be able to or see a reason to! Link to near death experiences:

https://astrogoodwin.wordpress.com/2011/10/06/my-two-near-death-experiences/

4. After 1992 I worked at developing new really advanced meditative(breathing) techniques and exercises that were designed increased my spiritual connection with reality by strengthening my physical-spiritual connection. The physical is resistant in nature so is able to give one the spiritual strength to cross barriers others can not. It also can challenge one in a way that can bring out the most in you spiritually. Today, we have so many problems in this world related to our inability to adequately handle the problems this physical world we exist in presents us with! Here are links to my meditative exercises and really intense dumbbell swing exercise:

5.  I have a diet without anything in it that act as a drug with means no herbs or condiments! My vegan diet(which evolved over a lifetime of experimentation) of mostly Oatmeal, canned greens, some tomatoes and vitamin/mineral supplements was designed for me individually to help me handle an extremely intense physical-spiritual training program! I do also do an intense frantic 3/4 of a mile run pretty much every day! I do not use coffee(caffeine)like most other runners, since I do not want anything interfering with my natural spiritual attunement to my body and how I am able to read it and figure out exactly how hard I can safely push it and in what way. When one pushes the body in a way that no one else is able you must be extremely sharp spiritually with no drugs/chemicals interfering with how you are tuned in spiritually to your body. One needs to rely on the drugs/chemicals the body itself produces and utilizes based on its perceived need.

6.  After 1992, I did develop a very unique astrology system that evolved as the intensity and effectiveness of my meditative/spiritual training/exercise techniques evolved. This astrology system is not some variation of a traditional astrology system(does not have signs or houses)and is not mythology based. It was developed with an emphasis on applying as much logic to it as possible along with utilizing my intuition/understanding of how the spiritual actually works. It was my spiritual tuning device that had to work well for to enable me to do incredibly intense spiritual training safely. So when ever I was not happy with my spiritual progress, I would have to figure out ways of improving my astrology system and the spiritual theories that where utilized in designing its structure. Spiritual training I find may bring one some inspiration, but intense thinking is required to further refine any raw inspiration into something very functional in this challenging reality we exist in. My mind has pushed the limits very often in my life especially after 1992 with a trial and error process applied over and over. Creativity involved a lot of trial and error mostly error. I have tested this astrology system not only on myself but on the charts of 20 celebrities and numerous charts I have done for people I have known in my life.

No one I am sure has done anything like me, so as a result I am able to do things in the practical physical-spiritual direction that nobody else can do. I understand that most people stay within the comfort zone that having a similar mindset and personality as a lot of other also have. Few people really get outside of this spiritual comfort zone since it is very scary and difficult to do. Also it is very hard to survive in a world like this that demands such a high degree of spiritual conformity from its inhabitants. Only people who are born with an inability to conform can really become the pioneers that open new doors in this world. Often necessity(desperation)is the mother of invention and individual and societal crisis is required in order for what it takes for really positive creative change to happen in this world.

The physical-spiritual connection and delusions

It is so important that one develops a strong spiritual connection to the challenging physical reality one exists in right now on this Earth! Spiritual strength comes from this connection with this resistant substance that challenges us and brings out more of what we are capable spiritually. We need to be focused on the hard reality that this physical substance provides. Spiritually what we put our energy into becomes real to some degree. The problem is that if what we put our energy into spiritually does not align well with the physical reality we are all spiritually connected to, then it takes a lot of extra energy into it to support it! The more delusional a belief, the more energy is wasted supporting that belief and the less one is able to maintain a strong grip on the hard reality we are part of. People who are quite delusional in what they believe spiritually can be quite confident in their beliefs especially if they are part of a group or organization that helps support that delusional belief.

In times of crisis is when beliefs(spiritual theories) get really challenged as to how well they actually work. Those who train their body hard doing exercises that improve the physical-spiritual connection require spiritual theories that really enhance their connection to reality in order to do them and do them safely! Doing spiritual crisis style training helps one to get a stronger spiritual connection to reality so that one will be drawn to spiritual theories that really work well in our reality. Actions and results count a lot in this challenging reality we are part of. Those who actually do the hard work required to become strong and aware spiritually can become really confident spiritually as a result of how well their training works and how well they know they can perform in a crisis situation. People who are delusional can project a lot of confidence and be quite arrogant, but are very reliable when really challenged and the bubble they created to protect their delusion is threatened.
This world is heading toward a crisis, since we are not facing reality well enough in a technological age that demand so much more out of us spiritually than any previous period in our history on this Earth! We need to advance a lot more spiritually so that we develop the spiritual maturity(grip on reality)required to effectively deal with the serious problems that exist in this world. When scientific advancement gets ahead of our spiritual maturity to handle it, we must advance further spiritually or we will be in deep trouble. We really need to develop more rational, reality based spiritual theories that help us to better cope with the intense challenges that now exist on this Earth. We really need to become a lot less delusional spiritually.

Spiritual energy invested in supporting wild conspiracy theories!

When big events happen on the world scene that are traumatic and cause quite a bit of political upheaval often the whole truth is hard to find since life is so complicated and often all the facts are just not discoverable. People who expect more of the truth than the official one and that is possible to obtain, will find many sources that will offer a different, but distorted version of what really happened that are presented by people who will come up with conclusions that fit a world view that demonizes certain people with power in this world and gives them credit for being able to pull off things beyond their level of competency. I am into hard evidence before drawing conclusions and an leery of those who tend to not have a very balanced perspective on how this complicated reality works. A lot of innocent people are convicted of crimes in this world when the evidence is not really solid, but they appear to be guilty to a lot of people. People have been put to death, who were later found to be innocent. So, it is so important to be very careful about jumping to conclusions without really solid evidence and to make sure your sources are reliable and do not present a distorted view of the reality of a situation due to having a distorted vision of this world and certain groups with power that exist in it.

Conspiracy theories may be intriguing and satisfying to how one would like to picture this world, but they are rarely a very accurate version of what has really occurred.  The portion of the truth that really counts has a lot of power contained in it and will eventually come out and be accepted by most of the informed public. It just takes too much effort to hide the truth from the public when it is backed up by enough evidence from credible sources. People like to believe they are smarter than others and thus have a better version of the truth than others, but one has to be careful about allowing ones ego to become too inflated as to how much of the truth one is capable of obtaining. Belief in wild conspiracy theories can eat up a lot of ones spiritual energy defending them within oneself and outside oneself and can distort ones vision of this world and a lot of the people in it. The part of the truth that is solid and obtainable when it comes to big events happening in this world has its own very strong energy and can not be readily hidden. The established order in this world may not be perfect, but they are not as messed up as a lot of people believe, or as competent at pulling off the great deceptions some people are so ready to believe they are.

We have a lot of delusionary energy in this world and fringe/extremist groups tend to feed off of this. A lot of delusionary people can appear quite credible! Con men are all over the place with some of them believing the distortions of reality that they come up with. Conspiracy theories can dominate the internet with more and more people elaborating in an imaginative way on the theory. The established version of what happened can readily be buried in an internet search engine by a sea of articles supporting a conspiracy theory. To those who are psychologically predisposed to believe in these theories this can make these theories seem so much more credible. I am into intense physical-spiritual/meditative training geared to give one a stronger spiritual grip on reality. It is not easy to get a stronger grip on reality so that one will develop the intuition required to sense what people/sources are reliable and what version of the truth is most credible and in spiritual harmony with how our reality works..

Brains are required to push oneself extremely hard spiritually

People often think that people can work extremely hard at something and get nowhere.  But, what is really true is that one can not push yourself really hard if one does not know what one is  doing.  My really challenging spiritual/meditative exercise techniques enable me to get a lot more out of myself without harming myself.  When one pushes oneself really hard it is so easy to injure oneself.  People who work hard, but do not get smarter at how they do it will reach a point where if they push harder they will be unable to stay on the fine line that is required to keep them safe.  Ones needs to program oneself as to the smartest/best ways to do things safely.  When it comes to the spiritual which is wholistic one must have a strong grip on reality and really be tuned into how the spiritual actually works in order to safely push oneself extremely hard.  One also has to understand the physical/biological mechanics of meditation well enough to figure out how to get oneself safely into a really intense emotional/spiritual state and be able to handle it well.  One needs to have the knowledge in the area of physical fitness and nutrition in order to do what it takes to become healthy enough to handle the stress that comes with dealing with really intense and the difficult emotional/spiritual  states that really intense meditative states can put you in.

All strength comes from the physical, since the physical is hard and resistant.  Really effective spiritual training will strengthen ones physical connection with the spiritual and ones grip on the hard reality that we exist in in this physical world.  My meditative walking technique and my dumbbell swing exercise with its intense meditative breathing is really good at connecting one with the really hard part of reality we exist in.  Spiritual character and backbone does not come easy and requires really effective training techniques and the spiritual theories that give one a reason to put up with how difficult/torturous they can be.  Often people who do intense physical exercise refer to it as torture, but they are often not motivated with the most serious spiritual purpose for doing their exercise routine.

Effective spiritual exercise has to be so extremely rough,  since the spiritual deals with our reality at its roughest/harshest and the trauma and emotions that result from it.    We have so many serious problems in this world and those who truly understand these problems and really want to make a positive difference here will readily want to program themselves with the type of spiritual theories that will enable them to connect with our reality at its roughest and deal with the type of torturous spiritual training that can give them the spiritual strength and awareness to become capable of contributing in a really meaningful way to transforming this planet into a more humane place to exist on.   A lot of good  knowledge trial and error is required to become smarter in how you train yourself spiritually so that you can push yourself extremely hard and do so safely.  When pushing the edge spiritually one has to balance on a really fine line and one really has to know what one is doing in order to do this!

Did alien technology develop amazing ancient structures?

No, ancient man was extremely capable with their own tools and knowledge. We have to depend on ourselves to make things happen on this planet, and we are very capable when we focus hard on what we do. It is easy to let ones imagination go wild when the facts are not clear enough. People who readily believe in wild conspiracy theories or stuff that is not supported by enough reliable evidence are not going to be interested enough in the spiritual theories, and techniques that I developed through a life time of effort. People often put their spiritual energy into supporting strange beliefs that do not have enough solid evidence to rely on. I could not have developed a new astrology system if I did not train myself really hard spiritually to have a very strong connection to reality. Delusional energy is very prevalent in this world that is so backward spiritually.

Wild spiritual experiences vs reality based ones

I avoid a lot of posts on spiritual sites about spiritual experience that people explain they are having that do not easily fit into the realistic way I envision the spiritual actually works.. The imagination can often go wild and misinterpret what is actually happening to someone. I do believe there exists a spiritual/emotional center in the brain that one can refer to as the “third eye” with the pineal gland playing a role in. I do believe that since we all are spirits we all are connected spiritually to others spirits to some degree on the spiritual level with the spiritual parts of our brain playing a key role.

I am programmed with spiritual theories that give me a very practical spiritual focus that is useful in the real world I exist in right now. I do not have spiritual beliefs/theories that allow my imagination to distort my spiritual perspective that much. This is because I made an effort to make myself that way with my reality based spiritual training. Of course we all are always connected spiritually to some degree since we need to be so in order to function well as the social being we are. If we lost this spiritual connection, we would cease to exist as a spirit and our body needs an operating spirit in order to exist. Some sociopaths have very distorted spirits, but still have spirits and can cause a lot of trouble as a result.

No higher life form is without a spirit with quite a bit of development so as to be able to relate emotionally with others especially of their own species. There exists these invisible connection between individuals and we also have a connection to our own body that can be maintained even when we project our spirit to quite a degree outside of oneself. Our body is very vulnerable when it has a lot of its spirit projected somewhere else. But, I find that the spirit can quickly return to its body when needed. I feel that one can learn a lot about how the spirit behaves by studying one dreams(while asleep). When one meditates one can go into dream-like states in which the subconscious mind will attempt to interpret what is actually happening spiritually to you. But in any dream-like state, one spiritual beliefs/theories will have to help the subconscious translate what is happening into dream/symbolic language. The accuracy of this interpretation will be limited to how well ones spiritual theories connect one to reality.

Those who have experienced life really intensely and have as a result gotten a really strong dose of reality, will tend to have dreams that are more aligned with reality and of practical value as a result. Those who are less realistic and willing to accept wild beliefs and a wild imagination needed to support those beliefs will have dreams or visions(often appearing quite real)that do not interface with reality well and are to me quite removed from how the spiritual actually works. We all are constantly learning lessons, and to me it is so important to have spiritual beliefs/theories that help us to function well spiritually in the physical world we now exist in. It is not safe to have ones spirit be affected by spiritual visions that weakens ones ability to be really strongly connected to the physical reality we exist in and that requires we act responsibly and maintain a high level of vigilance most of the time. One can get into a lot of trouble if one does not know what one is doing spiritually. Having strong survival energy is so important when one deal with the spiritual on a really intense level. One can get into a lot of serious trouble if one is not careful what one is doing spiritually!!

I have gotten really sick a number of times and also had near death experiences(1992) as a result of not knowing enough of what I was doing spiritually in the past. My strong survival energy and never give up approach helped me to survive and become really good at avoiding really serious trouble in the future. I have always taken the spiritual very seriously and that is why I believe I survived. My really intense spiritual focus enables me to get away with a lot that would not be safe for others to deal with. I was born really good in this area, and had to be to survive in this world. Necessity is often the mother of invention, and I feel like that is why I am good at what I do.

Spiritual/emotional attraction to bias and unrealiable (fake?)news sources

Reliable sources of information are important especially in a world where paranoia is often present on both political extremes. We need to stay very rational spiritually and search for a balanced perspective. The problems of this world are huge and not easily figured out or investigated. The focus for change in this world needs to be on the spiritual level. Too much self-righteousness is our spiritual enemy and tends to create and unhealthy polarization and spiritual imbalance We need to work more on improving ourselves spiritually and not be fast to buy into biased news sources on the left or the right. Fake news may not be the best term, but a lot of news sources are not that reliable. As we grow spiritually through intense physical-spiritual training and rational spiritual programming with better spiritual theories we can get a better spiritual connection with reality and develop the intuition to find the most reliable news/information sources.

So often people do not really understand how complicated it is to find good information and responses to the problems that exist in this world. They often think that if certain things were done, the world could easily be made a better place. But, things are extremely complicated and easy solutions are often not readily available, especially when the root problems of the messed up conditions in this world are spiritual in nature. Often in history one may think that if only another choice had been made things would have ended so much better, when in actuality all choices would have led to bad results. That is because if the spiritual energy underlying what is happening is not good enough to create a positive result, all choices will not work that well.

Fundamentalists and ideologues can really be insensitive to a spiritual pioneer like me

I have trouble with extreme ideologues of all kinds. They invest too much of their passion into an imbalanced perspective(that does not interface with reality well) that is blind to all that do not agree with them. I have run into problems from people from the extreme right and left. Passion/emotion is what powers the spiritual, and I find people who have their passion lock in too much to extremely one-sided viewpoints are not very open to someone like me who directs his passion to an extreme degree into the spiritual in a way that is practical and balanced(reality based). A lot can be done to improve the conditions that exist in this country, but it has to start with people improving their guiding spiritual theories so that they are able to really train themselves to be really effective using really good and intense spiritual-meditative training techniques. I deal with people as individuals and am not quick to demonize people, I am use to people demonizing me because I dare to go up against the spiritual status quo, that so many people blindly follow often without realizing that they are!

Addictive delusionary beliefs are like feel good drugs that have harmful side affects

Why is the Earth so messed up spiritually?  When delusionary(fantasy type) beliefs that do not interface well with the physical reality we exist in dominate over rational practical spiritual theories(theories can be questioned and improved on), then the spiritual climate that exists on the Earth will feel the detrimental affects.  In the advanced technological age we now exist in, it is so important that we improve on the spiritual theories we rely on, and cut down on the degree in which we are delusional in our spiritual understandings!  The serious problems that exist in this world require people that have the emotional maturity to handle them!  Some people are not going to let go of their spiritual delusions that come with a lot of the traditional religious/spiritual ideologies that dominate this planet at this time.  I feel they are willing to harm the quality of life they have with these ineffective delusionary beliefs and even die earlier than they should bringing these beliefs with them into their next life.  Effective guiding spiritual theories can enable one to handle reality so much better and to have a strong enough grip on reality to do what it takes to live a healthier lifestyle and to become better at contributing to improving the spiritual state this world is in.

We live in a world were so many people overindulge themselves in so many way and dull their spiritual senses as a result.  When we owns too many possessions or focuses too much on our physical desires we pay a price spiritually.   We have so many things in this world that can take our focus away from the spiritual and harm our ability to get the most out of ourselves.  Spiritual delusions actually are an indulgence that handicaps our spiritual effectiveness, but do tend to have a pleasant drug like affect to them!  The challenging resistant physical reality we exist in with its cycles is not escapable, because it has all the components needed to get the most out of us spiritually!  You will not escape this challenging physical reality by dying,  the cycle of life and death is unending.  As we face continuous challenges in the cycles we go through within this life, so will we face continuous challenges in the cycles we face in future lives. Those who are really strong and aware spiritually are able to see this physical reality in a very positive light and embrace the challenging aspects of it.  We can not transform our planet into a really great place to exist on, without have quite a different spiritual approach than what now predominates here right now.

We need to be guided by spiritual theories that interface really well with the physical reality we exist in right now, so that we will become good at handling the challenges/problems that exist here.  Pain and hardship come with taking on big challenges in life.  The people who achieve the most are those who overcome the most and that do not give up when faced with adversity and discomfort.    We can not transform this world spiritually into a better place to exist on, if we can not tuned into spiritually/emotionally the painful problems that exist here and be thus motivated to do what it takes to find remedies for these problems.   We do not get any spiritual results in this life or any future life if we do not do the required work to earn them!  The spiritual is a uniting force within us that works best when we use all our capabilities.  Working hard will not be very effective if one does not use ones mind really well to figure out(research) what is likely to bring about the best results.
