Jeffrey dialogues with James Kleinert, filmmaker and US Freestyle athlete about his life before film, getting involved with the Lakota Nation,  growing up in Wisconsin, his awakened spirituality inspired from his work with Native American Cultures and his monumental work on his beautiful documentary, SPIRIT RIDERS.
 
SPIRIT RIDERS is an international award-winning documentary film about the birth of an American Indian peace movement, begun in 1990 by the Lakota Nation and its growth over the subsequent years.
 
From the stunning images of wilderness landscapes to the dramatic footage of peace and unity horseback rides, this film is a visual delight. With narration by Peter Coyote, interviews with ride-participant Viggo Mortensen (Lord Of The Rings & Hidalgo) and an eclectic soundtrack featuring American Indian Grammy winner Bill Miller, Robert Mirabal, Keith Secola, Rick Allen, Lauren Monroe. SPIRIT RIDERS not only entertains, but leads the audience on a profound journey inside a culture and a movement offering ancient traditional visions of peace to a troubled modern world.
 
Many respected members of the Lakota community, including descendants of Sitting Bull and Black Elk are featured in the film, both as participants in the rides and as social/cultural commentators. Charlotte Black Elk, Alex Whiteplume, Birgil Killstraight, Ron His Horse Is Thunder, Russell Means and Mel Lonehill all make appearances in the film.
 
The film introduces us to the Lakota Indian tradition of ceremonial horseback rides and how in the last fifteen years these rides have become a source of inspiration for the Lakota people and a medium for a worldwide message of peace. We explore the annual Peace And Unity rides which each year are conducted to a different sacred site on the summer solstice. On that day, June 21st, a ceremony is held for peace among all people of the world and harmony with the environment. The film shows how this vision is coming to pass as the movement, which started as a purely local event, has since led to annual ceremonies not only in Central America but as far away as Ireland, Australia and South Africa.
 
SPIRIT RIDERS explores how the roots of the World Peace movement lie in the suffering and recovery of the Lakota. Through rides and ceremonies, Lakota people have found ways to let go of the grief and despair which persisted for over a hundred years following the 1890 massacre at Wounded Knee and envision a new and hopeful future. This is the invaluable journey which the Lakota people have to offer not only their own people but all the peoples of the world.
 
The film has a wonderful interview with Viggo Mortensen who has donated much of his time and resources to making this project happen and has a special interest in horses (Hidalgo).  James also talks about his spiritual transformation that was precipitated by a serious injury that was sustained while doing dangerous stunt work on a film project just before he was inspired to pursue his passion for the story of the Lakota Nation.
SPIRIT RIDER promises to be a landmark film that has much to offer a world that needs a greater connection to life, the earth, and a heart centered consciousness.

Jeffrey dialogues with Leland Lehrman New World Order researcher and expert about the controversial internet movie Loose Change regarding the demolition of the World Trade Center and the powers that seek to control world resources.

CLICK HERE for Leland's Blog.

In this dynamic conversation listen to references to Buckminster Fuller's last book Critical Path, information about Operation Northwood, and the Confessions of an Economic Hitman. Loose Change is featured on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine this month which represents a mainstreaming of the truth that 9-11 was far beyond a terrorism attack on the United States from Islamic fringe elements. We encourage our listeners to go to the site LooseCahnge911.com and watch the movie themselves.

Time: 52:05

Do you have a comment or question for Jeffrey?
Call our comment line at 206-495-3131 and leave Jeffrey a comment, question, or idea.

Jeffrey dialogues with Mike Hall, Attorney, Writer and Musician about his spiritual awakening and the adventures it has brought.

Mike shares his experiences as the Executive Director of the New Mexico Sentencing Commission and his 5 years as the State Court Administrator for the New Mexico Supreme Court. Having spent the last 10 years attending every session of the State Of New Mexico Legislature as a Representative of the Courts and Criminal Justice System in an advisory capacity, and developing a close relationship with Governor Bill Richardson, Mike has gained a lot of insight into what practical spirituality really is, and how to connect with people in a meaningful and authentic way.

Listen to Mike describe his spiritual journey, and the insights, challenges and expansion of consciousness he has experienced as a result of a daily commitment to Spiritual Awareness and Divine Love in the midst of the difficulties in the political and legal worlds of power and position.

Mike has written two books.

For those of us who entered this lifetime with an interest in what really makes life tick and a deep desire to finally master it after lifetimes of satisfying the human desires of pleasure, success, and duty to family and state, the idea of achieving true BLISS is a natural next step towards going home to GOD.

Most experiences in life are to be reckoned with from many different angles - material aspects that affect the physical conditions of life, emotional and Mental aspects that effect how one processes the experience and garners what one needs to from it in order to move into new realms of awareness, and the spiritual aspects, which instruct soul of its true nature and purpose.

BLISS is concerned with the melting away of the lesser desires in order to achieve a consciousness that can maintain a state of GOD awareness regardless of any circumstances.

In Western society, the concept of BLISS has been reduced to a sort of "high" that one achieves from one form of materialism or another - a better house, a new lover, a better paying job or any number of different ways to extract from our materially advanced society rewards that pander to the ego. This is very different from true spiritual BLISS.

BLISS is actually a state of awareness and being.  It matters little to the BLISSFUL one what external circumstances may be existing - pain and pleasure are aspects of the mind and have little consequence to the maintenance of BLISS, they are merely torches of Maya, or illusion that burn brighter and hotter with more attention and fade away as one turns ones inner gaze to the worlds of pure spirit and being.

One by-product of focusing on the truly spiritual is that many times one's outer conditions in the material world are positively affected by a focus on pure spirit, and one may find that all the issues that one has been working with in the mind regarding ones outer life have righted themselves without using the mind to correct the problems.  It's like a wisp of smoke disappearing into thin air, tracing how this works is next to impossible. But the greater reason to focus on spirit is to really grow ones consciousness to ever-higher states of being, bringing one into a loving awareness that is inexplicable and the real reward.

One powerful way to achieve a BLISSFUL state is to chant or sing your true name - HU.

HU is the first part of the word HU-MAN - HU being god or spirit, and MAN being derived from manos (Latin) - or mind). HU, the GOD part of oneself and MAN the mind part.  The particle or spark of GOD, the HU-MAN.  This is one's true name, and the sound of it has the power to take one right to BLISS, and then beyond.

JMOA #53 The Language of Liberation

Jeffrey talks with Mr. Be about what freedom entails, the upcoming film by Aaron Russo- America: Freedom to Fascism and the underlying meaning of true freedom. Jeffrey also talks about how culture is created by language, the word or sound current, and how we each participate in that creation directly by the language and sounds we choose to use every moment. Mr. Be describes his recent experience with the public monologues from military veterans from the gulf war and the Iraq war and how important their experiences are in leading the way to true peace.

Jeffrey interviews Solis about her personal experiences with The Grateful Dead, the manager for the Grateful Dead, Rock Scully (and wife and author Nicki), Timothy Leary, Janis Joplin and many others from the cultural revolution of the 1960's.

Recounting personal stories and anecdotes from that tumultuous time, Solis offers her deep insights and wisdom about how a small group of people changed the western world forever, and what the spiritual roots were that made it possible. With roots in a Native American past combined with an all American childhood in California, Solis offers a rare, unvarnished understanding of the emerging world spiritual culture that is continuing to emerge all over the planet, and what she is doing today to make it manifest.

I wonder how many are noticing the deconstruction that is taking place on a national level as we watch the constant pull of lower consciousness as it affects our national psyche. I hardly have to mention the list of what should be the outrages of the last decade to engage an emotional response to what can only be described as a degrading of truthfulness and fairness in the American social consciousness as it shows up daily in politics and public personalities. However I suspect that what is occurring on the surface of our culture, and that which the surface media concentrates on is a hypnotic, high definition concentration on the minutiae of scandals, deceptions, and horrors of the lowest of human behavior. Of course if there weren’t so many willing to oblige this appetite for the sleazy and horrific, then there may be a lull in the never ending parade of stories, but with billions of people and information technology that can deliver in seconds lurid details into everyone’s homes, this is unlikely to happen.

Where does that leave those of us who desire a more beautiful experience of life?

The age we live in is providing us with ever expanding potential for spiritual and consciousness development at an unprecedented rate and potential. There is so much information available to get involved in that it is literally mind boggling to try and imagine the details of these vast offerings. And yet at the same time it is also true that much of this vast information is pretty much all cut from the same cloth - lower level stimulation. And this lower level stimulation can be a subtle and powerful agent of disharmony and unhappiness for the individual who is attempting to focus on the higher things of consciousness. In fact the negative pull can be so strong that one can be fooled into thinking the very thoughts that one needs to be free from in order to achieve a divine overview. These kinds of thoughts are quite insidious and compel one to subtly switch one to think in limitation and negativity.

And who are the purveyors of this constant slush of negative thoughts and focus? Well, Political leaders, celebrities, entertainment voices to name a few, and others who constantly act in order to engage others into their reality bands. If one watches this play with detachment it can almost be humorous, and even make one feel that life on earth is one great big insane asylum. But at the same time it is a great opportunity to strengthen the divine viewpoint and rise above the sludge and fray.

I have watched with some interest the continual play going on out of Washington DC surrounding the obvious attempts to deconstruct the US Constitution and remove free speech, separation of church and state, and the right to privacy from the Constitution in order to gain personal political and economic advantage. For those of us who cannot imagine wanting to invade others personal and private lives with our own value-laden agenda, it seems impossibly ignorant and full of malice that others attempt to do exactly that, especially given the recent history of our nation where one would think that the lessons of poorly conceived wars and involvements had proven so misguided. But one is forced to ask - whose script are you following?

These extreme situations and dramas can only upset us emotionally or mentally to the extent that we have not examined out own base beliefs and learned how to maintain our state of consciousness. If one were to take an honest overview of human history one would find that humans have been acting in unscrupulous and power hungry ways for millennia in every culture on earth. So what's different today?

When George Bush took office he came replete with a spin machine, an agenda, and the props to impose his world on the rest of us. What we are witnessing is the unfolding drama that he and his machine had in mind from before the first election. There really should be no reactive behavior among the wizened among us, because reactive anger is an indication that one has been caught unprepared for reality and spent scant time examining the trends that have been in motion for decades.

So then what is effective?

Action… with specific outcomes that are realistic

Focus on end results with an eye on the obstacles of the negative concepts that we are dealing with - and anticipate the path that those who subscribe to those concepts will take.

Progressives got fairly lazy in the last few decades. They believed that their successes in the 1960’s and 70’s would continue unabated and that they could expect more and more freedom and expansion of civil justice forever. What they failed to take into account is the very strong and constant drift of history – that those in power in any society, and especially a society like ours that finds it’s tools of coercion are great, want to exercise power over others based on their own personal agendas.

George Bush has been experiencing a lot of trouble lately and his administration is under siege because they have an incapacity to understand that their agenda is not sustainable. They are experiencing a meltdown of public trust because the physics of human consciousness always move towards resolve and definition. Truth has a way of wiggling its way forward, even under extreme opposition. You are witnessing an expanding psychosis in American society as the stakes go higher to maintain thought control of the population to believe in a reality that has been manufactured in the imaginations of power hungry minds whose values are based solely in personal economic and social advancement. It is transparent to those who have the eyes to see that
The emperor is naked.

This process is dramatically karmic and unavoidable as anyone who has been in the path of his or her own karma can personally attest to. It appears that the karma for our national figures has sped up and is churning ever faster these days. Perhaps it is because we are actually evolving at a greater rate, but one thing is certain –one cannot bypass universal laws of cause and effect – no matter how much social and political power you have – everyone pays in the true coin - there is no escape from your choices and actions.

A deeper compassion is required to arrive at a higher understanding of the individuals who are experiencing the spotlight these days in the national and international media, because in all honesty, a 70-80 year life is a drop in the bucket of our vast universe, and the brief flash of ones lifetime in power is a glint off a mirror in the sun in the dessert.

Let us now assert who we really are – in all of our true divine origins and with the greatest love from the divine that we can imagine and make true what heretofore we have only philosophized about:

And that is to love all with compassion and detachment… and all will be ours. This is the greatest of life's commandments ever given to anyone– Love all and all will be yours, even the naked King.

In spiritual circles many discuss developing the right attitude towards life and the issues that confront us everyday as we travel our journey to greater awareness and love. There are many tools that one can use to achieve greater expansion of consciousness, but one of the greatest and most rudimentary tools or disciplines is a true detachment. Detachment is a funny word; it almost sounds like you are cutting yourself off from life - detaching - as it were, from things, feelings and emotions. However most of these ideas are based on limited old ideas about what detachment is from a very western perspective. Our culture is very reactive and emotionally based ands so detachment can sound like you are losing your passion or zest for life. But in reality a true spiritual detachment is really a way that provides for you to gain a deeper appreciation for life and to master it’s complexities with greater understanding and grace.

To really understand and make a true spiritual detachment a part of your beingness or consciousness one needs to allow ones consciousness to move into an ever higher vantage point that allows more objectivity towards people, things and events. A wonderful example that many can appreciate is the kind of experience one has when one goes to a really well made film that engages your mind and heart and explores territory that one has never experienced. When you are sitting in the theater all of your attention is focused on the film and the story it is portraying. All of the focus is provided for you when you are watching a film because the filmmaker has chosen beforehand exactly what he wants you to notice and put your full attention on. There is no question about the focus because there is only one arena that is being focused on - and the characters development is a personal experience for everyone in the theater - they are all having the same personal experience. It is really quite remarkable because we take film going for granted in our age, yet it was not always so. This film going experience has transformed society and civilization as it brings millions of people together to share the exact same experience that the film provides. This is why it is a bonding experience what the subject of films comes up at social gatherings - everyone can participate because they all had the same experience in watching the film. Of course their perceptions of that experience are individual, but those interpretations all based on the same exact experience in the film. I’m digressing here because the idea of film and its contingent experience is so amazing, and such a perfect metaphor for true spiritual detachment.

It is true that not everyone has the same emotional or intellectual capacities, yet there is one constant that effects everyone who goes to a film, they all realize that the film is just that, a film, and not reality. When they leave the theater, each individual knows that they have entered the "real" world and even when the film is highly emotionally charged and they are changed from it, they still do not think that it actually happened, they know for certain that it was produced by actors and sets and scripts. Although a really excellent film can suspend your experience of reality whereby you are so deeply affected that you change your beliefs about some subject, especially when the film is based on a true-life story, a film going experience still provides a great metaphor for what true spiritual detachment is all about.

You see, true spiritual detachment does not cut you off from life experiences; it actually enhances those experiences by giving you a greater view and consequently understanding of things. This is achieved because while the individuals’ emotional and mental bodies are fully engaged in an experience and the experience has full impact in those bodies, at the same time there is ever so lightly a sense of the observation of what is happening which contributes a very real sense of intelligent objectivity. It is very similar to the film going experience because the suspended disbelief of the film is like the detachment one maintains as one observes ones life experience form the vantage point of Soul. Soul, that eternal spark of god that is the true you, the endless you, the continuous you. It is Soul, the you that has been through thousands of experiences in this life and many others that can illuminate your emotional and mental bodies with the objective divine reality of true beingness and give you a greater sense of your own creativity as you make your life and its experiences come to life. It is divine love in action that gives one the gift of expansion and realization as these experiences mount ever higher towards greater expressions of divine love.

The love that comes from this experience of true spiritual detachment is deeper and richer than surface emotional feelings; it communicates wisdom, and links one with the sound current which manifests all of life in its myriad forms. And on and on one sails into the heart of god and life as one allows oneself to become more adept with true spiritual detachment and divine beingness. The result is that one develops a compassion and a kindness that can transcend anything the mind can imagine and lift your entire being into realms of knowing that only divine silence can contain; for this knowingness is too large for the mental body to grasp, and too magnificent for the emotional body to contain.

Some call it bliss

Life is designed to function in wellness and balance. Physical ailments indicate imbalance. When the physical body is balanced and well then there is ease. When it is unbalanced there is dis-ease.

Science calls balance homeostasis. We live in a holographic universe. All of reality is a projection of energy waves of sound and light which appears as particles of solid matter. Western medicine is grounded in Newtonian Physics and views life in parts. Universal medicine views life as a whole and is grounded in quantum physics. Homeopathy is the king of universal medicine; chemistry is the king of western medicine. The history of homeopathy is critical to understanding how consciousness has shifted over the last 200 years towards chemistry and manipulation of symptoms of dis-ease.

Medicine today is like much of America; it is caught up in the changeover from the limited paradigm of parts to the expanded paradigm of the whole. We are moving from Newtonian Physics to Quantum Physics, from Dogma to Universal Principles, from Fear and Limitations to Love and Potential, from the individual trees to the entire forest.

Consciousness and spirituality define one’s personal reality, and since consciousness in itself is the basis of heart, mind and soul, it is the most sacred of spaces to protect and respect in all individuals.

The most significant issue today is in the realm of what the mainstream world calls Privacy and Religion. In a higher language, it is the realm of spirituality and consciousness and is directly related to the right to privacy. Reality, or what is considered to be real, is the most hotly debated subjects in the public arena today. This debate is what has been called the culture wars.

The United States is a unique place where world culture is tempered and issues are put through the crucible of public acceptability. This is why certain hot button issues are being fought over for dominance of definition and framing within a specific viewpoint or value system. Tolerance of differences is only the first step towards the higher step of actually embracing different human experiences as bringing a greater understanding of life in its myriad forms. Embracing differences and different strengths is the basis for teamwork and team spirit and leads to the higher spiritual value of loving all of life.

The spiritual purpose behind the formation of the United Nations was just this, to embrace all of human life in all its forms. Today’s cultural conflicts are driven by those who seek to create divisions and disharmony in order to promote exclusionary philosophies. They use religion and economics as weapons of division. The government’s true role is to support life for all its citizens. The religious fundamentalists want to see their beliefs about reality made into solid laws that force others to live within their standards and beliefs. This is expressly un-American and contrary to religious freedom and a right to privacy.

The US culture needs to grow up now and embrace life as it truly is in order to attain the highest expression of its destiny. The controversies surrounding abortion and Intelligent Design are pertinent as to how critical the Right to Privacy is. Each individual needs to be honored for their own reality/consciousness and be able to live unencumbered by the dictates of special interest groups attempting to manipulate the laws of the land to suit their own ends. Richard Mayberry in his book,

Whatever Happened to Justice, distilled all human laws down to 2 that are common to every culture and belief system on Earth. If one lives by them, then life will work out for the best and one can avoid trouble. They are truly Universal principles:

1. Do all you have agreed to do.
2. Do not encroach on anyone or their property.

The most evolved societies base their codes of conduct on principles that are universal, not dogma that is subjective. The Right to Privacy at its root is an honoring of each individual within the privacy of their consciousness and how that plays itself out in their outer lives.

Mr. MI and Mr. BE discuss reincarnation and the many aspects of the expanded consciousness that accrues from the experiences in this life, and over many lifetimes.

Looking at the main life lesson through another’s personal viewpoint is a way to meet a facet of the face of God. All lifetimes are precious experiences of the ultimate lesson – to find a way home to divine love and awareness.

Reincarnation provides many opportunities without a time-line pressure, to achieve many attitude adjustments along the way. In attitude you can be either a resistor or an explorer in life – Spirit is the painter of a life story in non-resistance and provides illusion dropping experiences as one goes along. Self service is dead-ended and serving others is open-ended. It is attitudinal energetic that determines the experience one has.

There is always room for greater understanding and improvement – the endless horizon of eternity allows all beings, regardless of development, to always take another step. Multiple lifetimes allow one to keep stretching oneself to ever greater capacities – through both pleasant and unpleasant experiences. Reincarnation allows one to experience life in the whole and not just the parts – again the 360 degree view.

Your art is an expression of your viewpoint in many myriad forms. Your life itself is the art, you are the artwork.

Connects all of Life
Force behind the vibration of atoms and elements that make up matter, waves of sound come from the heart of God.
The Ancients called it the Audible Life Stream that which brings form into being
The Key element of the manifested and invisible cosmos
Specific sounds bring very specific results
The Human Voice sound of consciousness
The Power of Music to heal, disrupt, destroy, enflame, bring peace.
Sounds resonate with the different charkas and energy centers

Behind the 5 dimensions:
Etheric buzzing bees - word is BAJU
Mental running water - word is AUM
Causal tinkling bells - word is MANA
Astral roar of the sea - word is KALA
Physical sound of thunder word is ALAYI
We are the word made flesh - words can focus attention and consciousness
Notice how various sounds affect you and focus your attention, radio stations, machines, nature - key is how they focus your consciousness and can be used for contemplation or meditation - it is spiritual technology at work.

The HU-MAN, HU translates to mean God, Man is from the base of Manos or mind. HU-MAN is GOD-MIND. Ancient Vedic texts and Sanskrit identify it as the most sacred name of God and it becomes a love song when it is sung. It will tune the consciousness to the third eye and crown charka aligning the charkas and grounding it into the center of the earth and the god worlds at the same time. An ultimate consciousness tuner.

1-Establishing Change. 2-Ask some questions: What kind of change? Base it in personal and larger considerations. Change towards what and away from what? Is it ethical? Ethics and spirituality are intrinsically tied together. Tied into the picture of the 5 dimensions. Includes the bigger picture. 3-What is your focus? What do you want to achieve, and how does that relate to your personal sphere? All things grow from this. 4-Be the change you want to see first, other wise you are merely publicizing that which you have not yet owned and made real. This makes you subject to failure. 5-The American malaise. All rhetoric and no real demonstration. 6-The Power of Attention. 7-The Power of Personal Presence. The sheer weight of a truthful consciousness held in place is real influence. 8-Go for the highest activism. Personal transformation incorporating. 5 dimensional wisdom. It affects all the bodies, not just the physical or mental. But it needs to include the causal and etheric as well. 9-The 1960's activism paradigm was based in a feeling that something was really wrong that needed changing. Motivation for much of it was anger. But being aware of things being out of balance is the first stage towards wellness and healing. Acknowledging that there is a problem. Music today is "Changes" from the album popular music that will live forever by http://www.Finniston.com.

The greatest change you can offer the world is a changed state of consciousness and its related demonstrated behavior.

-Working within the framing of the 5 dimensions. The duality of the density of matter and the lightness of spirit. Beyond the Tyranny of Your own Opinions. Using Perspective: beyond the density of the immediate. Most expansion of consciousness is experienced when issues arise: health issues, incidents, personal challenges, relationship issues, or a subtle experience that is out of the ordinary. Health Issues are springboards into greater awareness. Using the Soul view from the 5 dimensional bodies. The Dream World: inside information. Using Spiritual Tuning techniques. Meditation or contemplation. The Language of your Life: consider your current story, what does it tell you, where does it lead you? Trusting your answers: they are always correct in the moment, working with completion, trust your life, trust that you are greater than just your body. You are Soul and have always existed and will always exist. Some humor: Borowitz report.
