  • The Genius and the Goddess

    At every instant every transience is eternally that transience. What it signifies is its own being, and that being (as one sees so clearly when one is in love) is the same Being with the biggest possible B. Why do you love the woman you're in love with? Because she is. And that, after all, is God's own definition of Himself: I am that I am. The girl is who she is. Some of her isness spills over and impregnates the entire universe. Objects and events cease to be the mere representatives of classes and become their own uniqueness; cease to be illustrations of verbal abstractions and become fully concrete. Then you stop being in love, and the universe collapses, with an almost audible squeak of derision, into its normal insignificance. Could it ever stay transfigured? Maybe it could. Maybe it's just a question of being in love with God. But that is neither here nor there. Or rather it's the only thing that's either here, there or anywhere; but if we say so, we'd be cut by all our respectable friends and might even end up in the asylum. So let's get back as quickly as possible to something a little less dangerous.

    - Aldous Huxley in The Genius and the Goddess

    Archetypal Love

    the Bright Principle of which all other Bright Principles are facets

    NOTE: This website is a Bubble in the Bubble Map of the free-to-play, massively-multiplayer, online-and-offline, thoughtware-upgrade, matrix-building, personal-transformation, adventure-game called StartOver.xyz. It is a doorway to experiments that upgrade your thoughtware so you can relocate your point of origin and create more possibility. Your knowledge is what you think about. Your thoughtware is what you use to think with. When you change your thoughtware, you go through a liquid state as your mind reorganizes itself. Liquid states can bring up transformational feelings and emotions. By upgrading your thoughtware you build matrix to hold more consciousness and leave behind a low drama life of reactivity. No one can upgrade your thoughtware for you. More interestingly, no one can stop you from upgrading your thoughtware. Our theory is that when we collectively build 1,000,000 new Matrix Points we will change the morphogenetic field of the human race for the better. Please choose responsibly to read this website. Reading this whole website is worth 1 Matrix Point. Doing any of the experiments earns you additional Matrix Points. Please use Matrix Code ARCHLOVE.00 to log your Matrix Point for reading this website on StartOver.xyz. Thank you for playing full out!

  • Long for Longing
    Taking pleasure in the experience of longing is the opposite of our cultural habit. We are trained to avoid longing by fulfilling any imagined desire or need as fast as we possibly can. Our desires are inflamed to the maximum with tantalising advertisements that tempt or frighten us into immediately buying what we want.
    Based on your own personal experience you have probably discovered that fulfilling desires never gives you lasting peace and contentment. Even though contentment is possible in any circumstance, with or without anything, you can watch the Box at work causing you to forget this and quickly arranging the next thing for you to desire.
    Peace and contentment are about having what we do have. Fulfilling desires is an effort to try to have what we do not have. Fulfilling our desires neither eliminates longing nor establishes peace and contentment. Thinking that gratifying a desire will eliminate desire produces an artificial union.
    For example, we may think, "If I only had that car I would be happy." Or, "If I could also buy the large ceramic salad bowl then my dish collection would be complete and I would be satisfied." After we have the car and the salad bowl will we really be happy? Will that be the end of our desires? No. Fulfilling a desire does not stop desires. The habit of fulfilling desires opposes the practice of cultivating longing.
    Cultivate longing? Yes. Longing is one of the great joys of life. Longing makes any moment precious because if we long for the Extraordinary and we enter the Extraordinary we still know that the Extraordinary will again leave us. Longing can be a life-spicer - like adding cayenne pepper to soup. The burn keeps us awake, alert, and bright. Trying to stop longing is as futile as attempting to stop hunger. The hunger and longing always comes back and will never be finally fulfilled.
    Acceptance of our longing is the true completion.       Longing is the way.
    Cultivate your appreciation of longing. As an experiment you can choose something that you long for and purposefully evade the Box's attempts to fulfilling that particular longing. Start with something simple, such as the urge to scratch an itch, to see a movie, to eat chocolate, to turn up the volume, to put down a heavy load, to go to sleep, to turn on a light, to tie your shoe, to have just one more. DON'T DO IT.
    Instead, sit with the longing as if it were a coal in your belly warming you up; as if it were flavour enhancer for life; as if the longing itself were what you wanted, not the thing you originally desired. Learn to love the longing for Archetypal Love as much as you love Archetypal Love. "Long live longing!"

  • P. S. It Is All True


    You probably won’t believe what I am going to say.
    You probably won’t believe it because I am using words.
    Words won’t impact you enough for you to get it
    Unless you have already been there.
    My question to you is this: are you willing to recall a memory?
    Because you have already been there.
    And without having to think about it much you already know
    That it is all true.
    All the legends of gods and goddesses,
    Of radiant golden floating temples made of marble columns and flowing silk,
    Of Archetypal angels and demons, upperworlds and underworlds,
    Of a sanctuary where uninterrupted being-with can occur.
    It’s all true.
    All the subtle energetic levels of multidimensional fluid reality
    All of the best ideas communicated in this book
    The wildest most outrageous inconceivable ideas in this book
    Are all true.
    Waiting to be explored, experienced, employed by you.
    Does it matter?
    No.
    Is it all true?
    Yes.
    You can go directly to the core of the mythical labyrinth
    And float in the being of the One
    Any time that you achieve floating conditions.
    It is not personal.
    The opportunity never goes away.
    Long before you were born and long after you die
    The opportunity is there waiting.
    She is there waiting
    The One. She is waiting.
    The beautiful, quiveringly tender, limitlessly accepting One.
    The One with wisdom and knowing beyond words.
    The One who waits, who can only wait
    Until you the Man become a stillness sanctuary where She can rest
    And “be-with” the brilliant radiance of Her being,
    The glow of Her presence, the Countenance of Her raw wild power,
    And Her peacefulness that surpasses all understanding.
    Words are far too crude and solid to talk about this.
    Even thoughts get in the way.
    So much of what happens falls through the gaps between thoughts.
    Nonetheless, it is all hereby confirmed to be true.


    Now, tell me this. What are you going to do about it?
