Plug into the possibility.
I was talking with my pal Chris over at Kosmic and I was trying to translate the concept of the “Currency Of Light” and he struggled slightly and thought it might be instructive to provide some examples to understand what I was talking about. So I thought about and what I came up with was a series of events that took place in my life in 1995, just as Pluto was touching my ascendant.
I was managing an apartment building in East Oakland and it had been an incredibly enlightening, yet more than occasionally sad experience. I was a witness to certain version of Black American life close up. It was the WIC, AFDC, single-mother version. I saw many, many things in that neighborhood that made me a much better person in many ways, but as I mentioned it was rarely easy. Two of the things that I had to do was evict people and manage their public behavior so that others in the building could live a mostly normal life. There was a series of events that took place over a three-week-stretch that for me was the uplink to the source that would eventually plug me into “The Currency Of Light.”
There was a young couple that lived in one of the bottom units. The guy that lived there smoked meth and was always drawing lots of trouble to himself and his quite lovely, yet unfortunate girlfriend. They covered their rent, but he was a REAL problem. So one day, I said to myself, “What if they had a small fire in their kitchen, no one gets hurt, minimal damage and it let’s us move them out?” Well, just a few days later, it happened and sure enough, they were on their way out.
Then, there was another woman on the same floor, whose sister would park her “hooptie” in the back, where only residents could park. I had asked her repeatedly to move the car and i always got the same answer which was “ok” and the car would remain. So as I passed her car, I actually thought about slashing her tire to teach her a lesson, but didn’t. I returned in the morning to find her tire slashed. She never parked in the back again.
Then, there was the big moment.
I had been working on one of the units and was shutting down for the night. The apartment below me was partying and loudly carrying on. I wasn’t into it. Not coincidentally, they were getting evicted. So I walked downstairs, asked them to turn their music down and they shined me on. I thought about going into the basement to shut their power off, but thought better. Then I said to myself, “What if there was a little power outage in the hood and they ended their party as a result?” Well, just a few minutes later, you guessed it–out went the lights and the party broke up. I was feeling a little weirded out at this point. I tuned into Art Bell on my battery powered radio and found out that there had been a major black out/power surge all over the Western US. Then I found out that the source of the blackout was . . . “Oakland.” I managed to call into Bell and told him my story. He said; “Well there you go ladies and gentleman, it’s all the man in Oakland’s fault.”
I began to look at how reality was conforming to my thoughts and realized that in each situation, I never asked for anyone to get hurt. Some might call all of this high strangeness just weird coincidences and yet, I knew that this was directly linked to my consciousness and was illustrating to me how we can have far more control over our environment than we had ever imagined, if we re-imagined ourselves and our capabilities.
Well I eventually experienced the backlash of this power when I decided to make it personal. I was clearly shown that I could not cross that line without consequences.
To me, this is one manifestation of “The Currency Of Light,” to be able to practice holistic and non-threatening magic. What if hundreds, thousands of us were able to tap into that powerful vortex? What could we do if our will and intentions were aligned in the highest and most loving way? What kind of magic could we wield? How quickly would we be able to re-imagine what’s possible? This is one aspect of what I am talking about when I mention “The Currency Of Light.” By tapping into the deep, cosmic reservoir of possibility and sharing it amongst ourselves, trading in the diversity of what each of us has to offer one another in relationship with the quantum universe, we interact with the quantum reality and accrue interest through the continued participation in this realm, especially in conjunction with others. That is the psycho-electrical throughput for “The Currency Of Light.”
For me, the possibility to link up on these subtle networks which allows the currency to flow freely and manifest in form is here and now with Jupiter in Aquarius. We can begin this collective practice by noticing it in ourselves, in our lives, in action in the world around us and empowering it’s presence. Twilight brought up the transit of Uranus into Aries and to me, that phase is the radical activation of will. It is the on switch for those that haven’t quite plugged in yet.
I’ll have more concrete examples in the not-too-distant future.
