Transformational awakening Art

Often coined 'new age', but much misunderstood. There is nothing so new that it has not been done before, not so much new age, but now.

                   Hi

Not sure if you've heard of us?!?! ... 
www.showcase-cities.com ... http://blog.showcase-cities.com/ ... please also find a short extract below which explains what we're all about...

"Showcase Cities offers superbly presented and beautifully lit commission free exhibition space to artists from all walks of life. Each event presents a fantastic opportunity to see up-and-coming artists display new ideas, new work and new styles.  Providing a regular, affordable and much needed platform, supporting emerging artists, enabling them to showcase work, generate instant exposure and make those all important commission free sales.  Embracing all styles, since our first show in June 2009 we’ve seen artists exhibit everything from Fine Art and Photography to Sculpture and Fashion Design."

Last months show (Feb 15th @ RICHMIX, E1 6LA) reflected a fantastic start to the year with artists Mark Hayward, Tatiana May, Carlos Martyn Burgos, Megan Brewer and Kimbal Bumstead all making sales - earning themselves over £1200.00 on the night commission free !!!  The atmosphere was electric with record attendance seeing 300+ visitors/buyers arriving and a fantastic live musical performance from Anja McCloskey + her band.

With the Olympics almost here - London's Eastend has never been so vibrant and we expect our shows to get busier and busier :)  Exhibition spaces are very limited at the moment, however we've just had a space come available for our March 21st group exhibition, and we would like to give you priority - its a centrally located and beautifully lit (see attached) - would suit your work perfectly.

We suspect this spot will only be available for a short space of time - so get back to us as soon as possible if you would like to be part of the exhibition? - its going to be another good one ;) ... should you have any further questions about any aspect of how we run our shows, please do ask!

Kind regards,

Blair

2011 M. in the Deep Heart you are the Creatrix, blacklight,canvas, 80x120 cm 1500 euro unframed

3x the same painting,in different lighting.Note the difference between the eyes in day and blacklight.I painted the blacklight part unknowingly,as I did 4 sessions in daylight, using UV colors.When i switched on the UV lamp,it was a big surprise, it shows a much deeper level of the girls personality.Magic...another proof that the best art arrives when the artists ego is not in the way..The mixed light shows resemblance to colors you see when using the 3rd eye,notably the blue-whitish lines...I found the photo (model) on the internet.she gave permission for me to use the pose.

Dissecting Alex Grey...

 

The work of Grey, where it concerns so called visions of auras and chakras etc are not real visions, they are projections, made up in the mind of the artist after seeing something possibly genuine with the help of hallucinogenic drugs.

 

I tried to find out more about the results of drug use in respect to true spiritual experience, and Grey was an obvious subject for me as he is ,like me,a painter of the invisible, making a name for himself,though with an apparent worldview that I had sincere doubts about.So,after reading an article in EnlighteNext Magazine about an american zenmaster who had frequently used lsd before becoming naturally enlightened,(selfproclaimed)saying the experience is the same,I abandoned my prejudice against LSD, peyote, etc. and tried to give them a fair chance and made contact.

 

I put an ad in his CosM Magazine, ''journal for visionary culture''.

This was after MM (Mother Meera, guru, teacher) suggested, asked, rather, if ''you want to join ''this lot'' then''.Later I had a profound spiritual revelation, true cosmic consciousness in the deep heart, not the miserable but clever copy Grey later presented to me as CC, but never reached any further than the 3rd eye, and never showed one original image..By coincidence(?) that same day I had shown some of Greys art in a book of his (Sacred Mirrors-the series with the oversized dicks),to a friend.I then thought he (Grey) had  to do with triggering the experience.Later I realised it was MM who gave me the experience.

 

An example of Grey's influence on my vision of ordinary things,during the days of occupation (posession) by him... : I see a blotch on a windowpane,  it is a dead insect.I focus slightly on the forehead,suddenly,i feel a change in my energy and the blotch changes into a perfect Klingon warship...so this energy drapes everything with a sauce of perfection...with no relation to the real world...hallucination, not  true spiritual experience...fairyland...though nature spirits(fairies) no doubt exist.But they are a very low level of realisation, if I understand Sri Aurobindo correctly.

 

PSYCHIC VAMPIRISM

Another, very disconcerting result of Greys invasion in me, (being initiated into his ´´groupsoul´´,was the loss of the Light that I had ,with careful discipline, begun to experience since a few months,, eyes wide open, the Transcendent,pure and beautiful.I suspect they ,he, stole it,tapped it, we call that psychic vampirism. .I inwardly asked Grey to stop, but he didnt,instead I got watered down versions of what was once a true and powerful light, sort of pretending he was the giver of that ''light''...well maybe he was, but I did not fall for it, an unexperienced seeker might have, as it is a clever,watered down copy of the real thing.

 

If I believed he could genuinely benefit from it instead of stealing it and use it for his own aggrandisement, i.e. if he did yoga, and werent so sexually impure, I would have helped him and his group.But his methods were clearly not benign..I want no part of his ''groupsoul'', as he calls it, a clever way of disguising egoistic motives ,draining others energy.

 

Then I wrote him an email,politely, to stop it.

 

He didnt,though there were some changes.

This man is completely convinced of his self righteousness and disrespectful and ignorant of the effect he has on others at best, but I suspect he does it on purpose.

 

Occult rape.

Maybe I have been perceived as a threat, to be incorporated,subjugated, which I could take as a compliment, of course a non drugtaking visionary painter like me,supporting his views and art may have been an asset.

I too thought at first we might mutually benefit from that,he has an extensive network.But I can never support these methods.An analogy:What he did to me is  trying tro convince someone that sex is good,by raping the subject. ABSURD, incompetent.Especially when the subject already knows and experiences divine bliss without end or means,(which he tried to steal.).

 

Its not in the numbers, it is in the quality and purity that you influence evolution, life on earth.His view is very limited,so far, he seems to want to repair, fix, ´´fixate´´  life, thank God evolution goes about its own way.with him,there is no room for imperfection , and no understanding of the goal of evolution.Instead he repeats the same old mistakes of religion .Error is the gate through which Truth arrives.I try to show that in my work.

I admired his skill as a painter, but do not care for his worldview which is just a repetition of the same old mistakes of all kinds of religious movements.His violent action towards me only proves to me he is just another intolerant sectarian, despite all his rethoric about openness to all religions and movements.A simple comment by me, on Obama, was removed from his site.

''You are free to express your views ,as long as they are the same as mine'', seems to be the message.Dictatorship.

But then the movement I feel most comfortable with strives for a goal for earth which few understand, the full integration of soul and body, i.e. physical immortality, as Sri Aurobindo laid down in his teachings.

 

 

WARNING

 

There may be a few who are drawn to his art, as was I, that may benefit from my findings and I may save them a lot of time and maybe  money and extreme discomfort/inconvenience....the experience of being invaded ''possessed'' by a demon (Grey) was something I'd like to protect others from.

 

The reason I got out of it was,I  suppose, that my Teacher(s) freed me when she thought I had learned enough, and suffered enough, from what was a bit foolish experiment, trying to get recognition as a painter from this group.

I needed money desperately, about to be evicted with nowhere to go, and I thought they could in some way give me a break.None of that,(written recognition,-for which I did not wait-or maybe take part in a groupshow), materialised, though my money problems were miraculously solved in an other manner,nothing to do with them, allowing me to bail out of this group.

I'd seen enough... 

So I now realise that the best thing to do for me, and maybe my Teachers aim in the first place,is to report about what happened and how I now see Grey's art .

 

''projections, made up in the mind of the artist after seeing something possibly genuine with the help of hallucinogenic drugs.''

 

what Grey showed me were endless caleidoscopic ''visions'' of already existing art, (I now call it ''innertainment''), mostly from his latest publication of CosM magazine, in which he presents, mainly drugabusing, what he calls ''visionary'' artists.The edition does not present a vision of the future.Nothing other than a repetition of the old mistakes.

 

 

 

He seemed pretty sure of himself, invading me like that, and convinced I would submit to his view and vision, which became rather boring however after an hour or so.The mere fact that he invaded without prior requesting permission, (I have regular telepathic experiences,I guess I am what Americans call a ''psychic''),and wouldnt leave when I asked him to, disqualifies him as a human.

He is a demon,no love, no respect..

I have no doubt that Grey can summon up lots of people to testify how great he is, they are no doubt impressed by his occult powers., (shamanic they call that nowadays...)and not knowing any better, fall for his and his wife's charms.

I have 40 + years of experience in the occult, seen many Teachers of all sorts,and had many spiritual and occult experiences,and learned to distinguish between true and fake.

 

They may even think themselves that they are ''the real thing''.So I cant really personally blame them, and it all looks so sweet and convincing, and the art is so great, this must be IT.

 But it isnt.

And the art looks great only because the poor human race has nothing better, yet.

 

DAMAGE

So I guess it is the drug that does the damage, it is a low level of experience that can not even be repeated without the drug, and, and this is what happens with Grey, his mind copies the once true, real thing, and presents it as real and he can no longer distiguish between them,having only a memory.THEN, however, he projects this fake aura stuff, onto his ''subjects'', for whatever reason, probably to impress...,

 

No doubt he had to do a lot of concentration and meditation and drugs to aquire this power.He ''drilled'' a hole from the third eye to the Overmind (oceans of light and bliss), ignoring or suppressing and leaving impure,all the levels inbetween.This accounts for the beauty of the images he bombarded me with, even though none of them were originals, and all were tinged with a fringe of the lower chakras, (pelvis chakra-power in the world, and the lower ones).(black background to the images).Due to sexual impurity.Grey promotes sex, but sex is an unnesecessary habit,a great hindrance even, if you go for physical immortality.If you want to learn how to fly, you have to stop walking.Keep indulging and you'll never reach the power that has the possibility of physical transformation.But ,as I said, Grey HAS no vision of the future, other than ''fixing'' the present.That's been tried for 6000 years and we are on the brink of extinction.

 

For more on the experience level, read my essay ''some comments on the teaching of Andrew Cohen''.Grey and his friend, filosofer Ken Wilber, use Cohen teminology.

 

I  avoid churches of any kind, avoid rituals as they are old age and I do not compromise in any way politically.(Grey does, he even made a flattering painting of Obama, the guy who installed Wall Street,BANKERS,the guys that caused the recession, in the US GOVT. and now sells out the USA to China.And I am not into religion though I do believe in self control and surrender and service to the Divine,for which one needs one thing only, and that is observational quality,(''discrimination''),sincerity and LIGHT, pure and clear.I try and follow the teaching of Sri Aurobindo.

 

3rd eye fairyland

Grey, as selfproclaimed teacher, can not pass on this Light to his followers, instead they get this 3rd eye fairyland vision, which will do nothing for our planet or the human race, but will, would,could make him ''a great artist'' in the eyes of the less fortunate, boosting his ego to cosmic proportions.

 

The shamanic way (abuse of drugs) has proven inadequate-the mayans and native americans were overrun and slaughtered.

 

In this respect it may be of interest to the reader that Sri Aurobindo declared war on the British occupiers of his homeland India,1904, and later yielded his Divine power against the axis powers (hitler and japan) and that the official end of ww2 was on his 73rd birthday, and the official declaration of independence of India, on his 75 birthday.(15 aug 1947)....

 

anyone who has seriously studied the work of Aurobindo knows this is not a coincidence.

He was not into rituals, though his companion, The Mother, was extensively trained in the occult, before they left all that behind them as inadequate.

 

I learned from this Grey business that apparently one can be CC at some level(crown chakra, forehead chakra), and still be subject to the lower impure influences, distorting what was initially a pure and free vision.I used to think that once one was CC, one would be no longer subject to the pitfalls of ego, but apparently, if attained with the use of drugs at least, one can still abuse one's power.

For those interested...:

Aliens who can travel through space/time are not necessarily benign, they too may have drugs, or may have genetically manipulated themselves or others.
