You can only learn what is true through your own experience.

 Reposted as it disappeared from the editing list


I just read the book Rolling Thunder, Doug Boyd’s description of his time spent with an American Indian medicine man, published in 1974.  It’s full of interesting insights.

People who try to convince others of truths they are aware of through the use of words are unlikely to get very far, the book suggests.  You only learn truth through your own experience, by becoming part of it.  Here are a couple of extracts : –

  1.  In our religious services, we pray for all people – no matter what color skin – and for the animals, and all things around us in Mother Earth.

I always say we have our own church within our hearts.   You have your own church right in here.  If you follow that within your heart, you are doing something right with the Great Spirit’s instructions.  You can follow your own heart even if you do not go to church.  That’s the way we’ve been told.

In all David Monongye talked for three hours,  and while he was speaking, my mind went back to some of my conversations long ago with Swami Rama, and more recently with Rolling Thunder.  There were all talking about the same things:  the happiness that could be found within the heart, the disciplines of mind and body, and the techniques for working on the self and for living in harmony with nature.

2.  Rolling Thunder had explained at Council Grove that his training was experiential.  In his conversation with me he said that truth cannot be expressed verbally, that it can only be experienced.  ‘You have to live it and be part of it, and then you might get to know it.’

My first step was to learn what Rolling Thunder meant by understanding.  Understanding is not the sort of thing my modern, establishment education had me believing it was.  Understanding, to what Rolling Thunder calls the establishment mind, is simply a rather low level dance and shuffle, a kind of churning process by which a number of ideas and concepts are juggled around with the newcomer idea until they all somehow fit together.  This fitting provides a feeling of knowing which gratifies the mind. …

To Rolling Thunder, knowing is being.  His simple description of the arrangement of the universe is that there is a right time and place for everything.  That cannot be understood by any process of speech or thought:  ‘It’s easy to say but hard to understand.  You have to live it to understand it.’….

He understands right time and right place and therefore he is a part of right time and right place….First you identify the principle, that is, you become one with it.  When you become one with it, it responds to your will.

Though the unenlightened student might feel the need for evidence and reason, for immediate conclusions, the supreme teacher is above the need to prove his point, or even to be understood.

EXTRACTS from Rolling Thunder by Doug Boyd.  Dell Publishing Co.  1974.

It’s a great book, full of stories which illustrate the philosophies being described.

My own experience of being shaken out of a long-term depressed state by earth energy in a split second while walking down Paseo De Roxas, in Makati, the Philippines in 1988, makes it easy for me to follow the belief of the American Indians (and other pagan, primitive and gnostic people) that Mother Earth is a living being, as written throughout the book.

I have often returned to the spot where this experience occurred.

I went back to that same place this morning at sunrise, and relived the moment, feeling energy and optimism feeding into my body and mind, as usual.  Earth energy nodes are usually covered over by churches, or are used by Satanists holding sacrificial rituals to depress the Earth’s natural vibrational energy.


The old Mandarin Oriental the other side of Makati Avenue from the ‘live point’ where the new one is going to be built.

Next year, they’re going to build a brand new Mandarin Oriental Hotel over much of the ground, where this particular earth energy node appears to be located.  I’m pleased to say that not all the ground will be covered by the new hotel.  The place was one of the runways of the original Manila airport, and is next to where the Japanese occupying forces’ headquarters were located in WW2.  Today an American bank is based alongside the spot to which I return every year to relive that wonderful and surprising moment of recovery from illness, nearly thirty years ago.  The Satanists haven’t destroyed the energy node yet.  I hope the American Indian medicine men are also able to survive the cultural genocide of their people.

    This is interesting what you say
    ” Earth energy nodes are usually covered over by churches, or are used by Satanists holding sacrificial rituals to depress the Earth’s natural vibrational energy.” and
    ”the spot to which I return every year to relive that wonderful and surprising moment of recovery from illness, nearly thirty years ago. The Satanists haven’t destroyed the energy node yet ”

    I didn’t realise the Satanists goal with leyline vortex points was to depress the natural etheric energy that flows, and to destroy the vortex point.
    I didn’t realise that. I thought they wanted to control it instead, and use it as some doorway to their Underworld where their demons can enter this realm, and siphon off our etheric energies into that realm. Very interesting.
    I read this today the May 2016 updated article on etheric energy heres a few interesting points I can imagine that would work well while walking round that place in Manila
    5. Adding new etheric to the body. The most powerful method to receive more etheric energy into the body is to use your will to move subtle energy downward from your head to your feet. Done correctly, this can moves a lot of etheric energy into the body. This is the Pushing Down Mental Exercise. For more on this, please read The Pushing Down Mental Exercise on this site.

    Any amount of doing this exercise is beneficial. By doing this at least two hours daily, it can lead eventually to rejuvenation of the body and reversal of the aging process. It is like pumping more gasoline into a car engine, or putting more electricity through a wire.

    This is the main reason I suggest everyone do this exercise daily for life! It is also why I do not recommend all the other concentration, meditation, visualization and other mental practices. They simply cannot bring in as much etheric energy, even if they are relaxing. Many of them actually deplete one’s etheric energy if you move energy in any direction except downward.

    Moving energy downward from head to feet is also facilitated by certain procedures and even foods and supplements that are included in a nutritional balancing program. Most other foods and supplements have an opposite effect, and we must avoid them, often for this reason alone.

    Other methods of bringing in more etheric energy include deep breathing for at least 2 hours every day. Other methods to bring in more etheric also exist. However, they are difficult and perhaps dangerous to do without instruction, so I don’t recommend them

    Enhancing the absorption of etheric energy is related to what is called on this website mental or spiritual development. Basically, as a person absorbs more and more new etheric energy using the methods described above, the body develops more abilities and even better health and longevity.

    This has been known for thousands of years, but has not been taught widely

    Etheric energy flows around the body through a series of channels that run vertically down the body. Many of these are not open in most people. Certain healing therapies, notably foot and hand reflexology, chiropractic and deep breathing help keep these channels open and can help open more of them.

    From the channels, etheric flows to the fascia layer of connective tissue that runs throughout the body. This is very important, because when the fascia is tight, twisted, damaged by accidents, injuries, or surgery, it will affect the etheric energy flow throughout the body.

    What happens as we age? In practically everyone, with age the fascia layer becomes damaged, twisted and tight due to injuries, accidents, spinal misalignments, infections, electrical interference, and today most of all, by nutritional depletion and toxin accumulation. This hastens death in all cases.
    How to conserve your intrinsic etheric energy. Here are six major ways this is done:
    3. Retaining sexual fluid (mostly for men). Sexual fluid contains a lot of etheric energy. It is necessary to make a baby. Retaining this fluid is an old trick if you want to be live a long life. I don’t agree with today’s doctors who tell men and women that sex is great, and the more, the better.

    Having said this, sex without orgasm for men is always fine. (Thank God)
    If one wishes to live much longer, one must enhance the absorption by the human body and mind of the environmental sources of etheric energy. This is the etheric that is found in the food, air, water and elsewhere around all of us, no matter where one lives. Here are a few simple ways this is done:

    E. The Detoxification Procedures. The nutritional balancing procedures such as using a near infrared lamp sauna, but not other types, on a daily basis for at least 10 years for most people, is most helpful. It also includes using coffee enemas for at least 10 years for most people.

    This is what it takes today to detoxify the body sufficiently to restore it to the way it is supposed to function.
    These methods can help detoxify and tone the liver and other organs to increase their ability to absorb more of the etheric energy in the environment

    As discussed above, the way to do this is by practicing the Pushing Down Mental Exercise every single day for at least half an hour, and ideally for one to two hours daily. You can do it sitting, lying down or even walking. This does not matter. What matters is to do it. Do not feel frustrated if it seems difficult, especially at first. Just continue to do it.

    Conserving the etheric energy with which you were born, and learning how to get more of it from the environment, food, air and water are extremely worthwhile to learn.

    Even better is to learn how to get more of it directly from God or Source or the universe using the Pushing Down Mental Exercise. This article is a good introduction to this fascinating subject. For more on this subject and related issues, read Etheric Resetting, Telomeres, And How To Lengthen Them, the Ether Theory, and a dozen or so other articles about development and ether on this website.

    • Deuteronomy 33.22 says:

      Worth emphasising that the damaged twisted tightened fasica layer that surrounds our muscles etc that stops the etheric energy flowing down our body and absorbing more of it in through the top of the head,

      The near infra red sauna with all its beneficial effects such as circulation boosting and heat shock protein activation and more, combined with diet, and maybe gentle stretches or physiotherapy or chiropractor work, should unstick and disentangle and hopefully correct or at least improve twisted fascia layers
      Then etheric energy can run down much better
