Angel: Being of Light
Tech: From "techne", meaning Art
We are, in essence, beings of light. Most of us have forgotten this, some of us are starting to remember, and a few of us are living the truth. If you are reading this now, you are probably somewhere in the middle...between forgetting and living. Those forgetful among us would have no reason to read this book unless they, perhaps, are waking up at this time. Individuals already living the truth are very possibly too busy to read a book about it. How do I know these things? I'm the one writing this book, and if I were living the complete truth, maybe I'd have no purpose writing about it, would I? However, I've a story to tell and writing is my way of organizing my thoughts so that I might communicate and, proceed. My bias is to approach living as consciously as I can...eyes open, through the center and out the other side.
ANGEL TECH is an Invisible Institute for Higher Learning dedicated to Intelligent Survival with the Planet. The Teachers walk amidst our daily lives prepared to share the appropriate information when we are ready for it. As we evolve, the lessons present themselves more clearly. For those of us who are too headstrong to learn from other human beings, lessons will duly arrive in the guise of Situations, Dreams and other Self-generating activities. The rest of us, who can learn from each other directly, will share the opportunity of meeting the Teachers in the flesh. They are us. We appear in a vast array of masks, cloaks and roles, and many of us will not even take the credit for something which comes as natural as helping each other. These Teachers, however, have been recognized in the following services: Gas Station Attendants (Self-Serve), Grandmothers, Stumbling Drunks, Astronomers, Cats, Landladies, Ferns, Newscasters, Mozart, Hardcore Punk Musicians, Madmen, Crystals, Children, Presidents, Indian Chiefs, Movie Stars, Plumbers, Telephone Operators...and the list goes on forever. It's all Spiritual and the Teachers are everywhere. It just takes a certain kind of perspective to see this.
A message is the ordering of a signal. Consider ANGEL TECH as an alternative education system, one which arranges living planetary signals into meaningful messages. These signals come in octaves, or cycles of eight.
Languages throughout history have translated these signals as The Overtones of Music Theory, The DNA Code, The I Ching, Computer Binary Notation, The 8 Mayan Calendars, The Game of Chess and other interpretations of the universal law of octaves. This book furthers the attempt at humanizing spiritual realities...revealing the unbreakable bond intersecting cosmic and banal factors of our daily waking, dreaming lives on planet.
ANGEL TECH, like the Universe it refers to, is fraught with "strange loops." A strange loop is any event animated by an interplay of contraries. It is strange for at least two reasons: 1) The more you try and figure it out, the more you get stuck inside and 2) If you stop trying to figure it out and start "living it out," the more, uh, strange things get. However, what is strange from one perspective remains quite ordinary from another, and vice versa. From the viewpoint of our Multidimensional Nature, Life may not be a simplistic True/False Answer Test after all, but a Multiple Choice Questionnaire. Strange experiences may simply reflect a hereto unknown facet of our very being and not something "other than Life."
This book was written in the spirit of exciting self-definition; it may, at times, take for granted that the reader knows he/she creates his/her own reality. The text herein explores and defines what could be one of the primary strange loops of being human. This strange loop---or interplay of contraries---permeating our lives refers to how we choose to interpret our realities according to:
- Socio-cultural Imprints---what and how we were taught and conditioned to believe, think and feel about ourselves and the world and...
- Our Central Nervous System---what our innate sensitivities register as true for the purpose of coming to our own questions and conclusions.
- What is Intelligence? Define it in your own words.
- According to your definition of #1, how can Intelligence be increased, accelerated, and/or realized?
- What is your favorite color?
The overall intent of ANGEL TECH can be experienced for yourself through a process called "self- reclamation." This book's format is an evolutionary grid to test this process, as well as to support its manifestation. The work has begun with your own definition of Intelligence and its potential for increase. How you define your terms determines the degree of direct knowledge accessible to yourself. Your definition(s) is/are the integral thread of your psychology: how you make sense of it all and how big your picture is. Most importantly, you are putting yourself ON THE LINE by risking self-definition. This is because true transformation begins with self- knowledge, as only that which EXISTS is subject to change.
Our definitions are tested daily as a way to check our resonance with the spiritual; we discover which images accurately reflect What Is and, which do not. If we remain attached to an idea after it is revealed unreflective of truth, we begin living a lie and compound our suffering. Attachment to anything dead and/or dying creates pain. If given the choice between dying a Slow Death or passing through Quick Decay, which would you select?
