The teachings of Ratsevod the Gliesian – Page 1

Ratsevod was a great explorer of the known universe and wandering sage of Gliese. The following is his teachings which are composed of the spiritual truths he found during his wanderings through the universe.

“Core of Being”

The Core of who you are is the result of what you believe about yourself. You set your own limits and boundaries and you can not surpass that which you believe you are capable of doing.

“Be open to your own greatness”

You came into this world with all that you need to make your life that which you desire it to be.  The Trick is learning to tap into your full potential, all the tools you need are there deep within who you are.  Only person who stands in the way of you reaching your full potential and greatness is you.

“Discover that which you are here to experience.”

Your experiences are custom-made just for you and your personal evolution. Whether it be  anger, happiness, compassion or love. Life is unfolding in the way that  it should at all times. All the experiences you have and had were the experiences that you needed to grow personally and/or spiritually .

“Do all with a full heart and experience life fully”

Give your full attention to everything that is happening to and around you in each moment. Put your mind to experiencing everything to the fullest. Experience every sensation of every experience. For instance if you walk in the rain feel the coldness of the rain drops, the speed they are hitting your body and how it feels as it evaporates from you skin. Do not let one of the experiences escape your senses .  Live fully in the now, for the past is gone and the future is yet to come. Focus on the experience of being in the now.

Focus on now and do not waste time and thought on other times and places, it only serves to distract you from all the gifts and wonders of  the experience you are now within.  Live life with vigor and set forth all your passion and enthusiasm into the moment at hand.  Do everything with a full heart.

“Love with no limits and Revere life”

Love one another, yourself and all that exists without condition or limitations.  The love you give will always be outweighed by the love you shall receive. Like the old saying you have to spend money to make money is just as true if not more so about love. You have to  give love unconditionally and fully in order to open up to receive all the love that awaits you in your life. If you give love , compassion and are thankful you will never be alone and will be surrounded by love.

Love life, respect life and be compassionate for all living things. Be a good example and more than likely others will follow in the same.  How you respond to another person is always your choice. Be kind, even to those who are unkind to you.


“Learn from life, live to learn and love without limitation.” ~Ratsevod

The Inner Realm, The Place In Between (continued) (2)

It has been a month since that odd dream Jeff had and it had become a distant memory. Jeff comes home from his long day at work feeling a bit more tired than usual. He starts a fire in his fireplace and sits down in his favorite worn out recliner beside the fire. Jeff Slowly drifts off into sleep as he watches the flames dance as he listens to the hypnotic and soothing cracking sounds from the fireplace.  As his eyes slowly shut and he drifts off he hears the laughter of that almost forgotten old man from that dream from a month before. He finds himself sitting on the ground in front of that same campfire across from that old man Verum Peto. The old man looks at Jeff and smiles then says” I see you finally woke up again”.

Jeff not knowing how to take that statement or how to reply sits quietly looking at the campfire trying to figure out how it got here again.  Verum sees that Jeff is still bewildered by it all so he explains to Jeff how that this is more than just a dream, that is the place between conscious and subconscious, the place between the physical and the spiritual  dimensions. “Jeff this is the place between all that you know and all that makes it all come into existence. This is the realm of thought, dreams and the border lands to both your physical dimension and the dimension of spiritual or the metaphysical plane. This place has been called many things but the Tibetans came closest with what they call the Bardo plane.

Of course I am referring to the Milam Bardo, the entrance to the in-between state or dimension when one enters the dream state. They hit it pretty much on the head with the Milam Bardo. Pretty much in a nut shell Jeff you are in the white space in-between heaven and earth.”

The old man Verum then hands Jeff a cup of hot cocoa and gently smiles at him. Jeff still trying to grasp and take in all that Verum said just sits silently sipping his cocoa. Just as Jeff takes his last sip of cocoa Verum turns to him and says “It isnt quite time for you to truly awaken yet” and with that said, Jeff sits up quickly and sees he has returned to his old battered recliner by the fireplace and wonders once again if it all was but a dream.

Dell Axim x5 as a E-Book Reader

  I have recently purchased a Dell Axim x5 Pocket PC to use as a E-Book Reader, And I will tell you it was a pretty good choice. I can read e-books of all formats except for Amazon’s Kindle Version. But Amazon’s Sister company I can, So I can pretty much read any type of E-Books out there. The Pocket PC also can surf the web and play both mp3s and Videos (Not on the web due to lack of flash and will update if I fix this issue) which most E-Book Reader Devices can not do. Size is also a plus for me, It fits in your hand and still has a large enough screen to make reading enjoyable. Though I think the Kindle and Sony‘s E-book readers may give you a better experience in the amount of text you can read per page. Price is what sold me, now days you can get pocket pcs used for around $40 – $70 on both and .

Well enough about that..

Peace to all

E-Books The Future of Written Word

A Picture of a eBook

With the new trend in E-Books and readers there is many sites out there offering both free and purchasable EBooks. From amazon to MobiPocket and software from both of them to enable both your pc and your mobile devices to read e-books it seems the way of paper and ink are becoming like the way of cds and dvds. The possibilities are grand for the new digital trend especially in the education sector. Just imagine the collage student can carry all of his or her books in one SD card or on her laptop. This could also lower the cost of books for both the university/collage and the k-12 schools.

  Though I have a feeling the publishing companies will either try and squash the possibilities of E-books for schools or make the cost of them the same to make it  less advantageous to go digital. Either way I believe E-books will eventually be the norm both in ones house and in the schools across America.

Below are a few links that might be helpful to those interested in E-books.

The new TV, Internet Television

Image via Wikipedia

  Digital Media is becoming the norm now days, with mp3/mp4 players and hdmi HD video streaming available from the net to your TV there is very little left to explore. There is of course shoutcast a long living internet radio streaming system and Orb a full media streaming system for pc and Mac. So much to choose from and so little effort required to set up almost any type of multimedia system. Places like and give people the ability to find creative commons licensed and public domain movies, music and E-books. Don’t forget about Google books another good source for free and creative commons licensed E-books.

  So much to choose from with the world wide web at ones fingertips and thus a new network is growing. The World Wide Multimedia Net, Information in all media formats and entertainment at your fingertips. I foresee a struggle from cable companies and satellite providers to stop the newer form of media transmission but eventually they will adapt and turn what now is free and cheap to another expensive commercial ran entertainment venue. In time they will take over just like they did in all other previous media services and push the hobbyist and small business people out of the new market.

This had already happened in the internet radio industry, the big music companies made it almost impossible for a hobbyist to legally run a internet based radio station. They lobbied congress until a bill was passed to force hobbyist to pay high priced loyalties even if their station didn’t earn money and was for fun or not. Given time the same will happen to the video sites we enjoy and the creative commons movement if we don’t support their efforts.

Maybe if we are lucky the new media revolution on the web for video will not succumb to the same fate as the internet radio stations. Would be nice to have Internet TV that is both commercial and hobbyist in order to keep the programming affordable and diverse. But more than likely the big boys of the corporate world will once again squeeze all of the little guys out before they have a chance to grow.

Well enough Ranting for now

The Inner Realm, The Place In Between Pg. 1

The sun rose from the east like any other morning and like usual Jeff Bartlett started his pot of coffee and readied his self for another tedious day of work. Little did Jeff knew that fate had something a little more interesting for him than his usual trek to work. As he drove down Hwy 143 towards work a strange bright light appeared around his car and then vanished. As soon as the light disappeared Jeff was no longer on Hwy 143, He was in middle of a field of corn. Jeff stopped and stepped out and looked around to see nothing but corn for miles around him. Confused by what just has happened Jeff sat back in the car and smoked a cigarette in a slight daze. Jeff figured if he was to figure out where he was then he should try driving out of this corn field so Jeff cranked up his car  and drove slowly through the corn field.

   After about ten minutes of driving he finally exited the corn field only to find a hilly grasslands with a few  trees spread out along the landscape. “Well this isn’t looking good”  Jeff said as he scratched his head trying to figure out what happened and where the heck he was.  From behind the vehicle Jeff heard a voice calling out to him saying  “Hello” and in he looked his review mirror and  saw a  old man waving at him.  The old man came up to Jeff’s window and said “You look like a man in need of directions”. Jeff looks at the old man through the window and replies “Man that’s an understatement if i have ever heard one”. The old man just smiles and tells Jeff that the directions you want are not the ones you need and starts walking away and before Jeff could even say a word the old man says “If you want directions then come sit with me by the fire” and the old man  disappeared over the hill.

  Jeff gets out of his car and ran after the old man only to find him sitting on a rock by a campfire beside a small pond. The old man waves at Jeff to come and sit by the fire with him. As Jeff finally sits on the ground by the fire the old man looks at Jeff and says to him “I bet you wonder how you got here don’t you?” “Well don’t worry yourself over that, it isn’t all that important at least not as important as why your here.” then the old man goes silent and plays with the campfire. “Where am I anyways?” Jeff asks with a bewildered look upon his face. “Where are you?, why sitting by a campfire” the old man says wittingly. Jeff’s face begins to turn a bit red from the old mans answer and then the old man stands up and says “I am Verum Peto and you are in the inner realm, the place in between.” And then Jeff Wakes up in his bed at home thinking it all was a dream.
