Many of you who have been frequenting The Way of the Weird have asked “Is this real or fiction?”. It is both. The philosophical aspects of the Waking Dream are rooted in real explorations of world religion, science and other philosophical disciplines, both eastern and western. This site serves as an addendum to the Waking Dream Novels, but also as a way to expose people to the elegance of our existence and the power within each of us to have our dreams come true.
The Weird is an attempt to explain all the things we do not understand about our universe, and present it in such a way that we realize how we can use it. It has been called many things throughout human history — Tao, The Force, The Field, The Ether, Dark Energy, The Holy Spirit and Magic. And we can use The Weird through an ability, or effect, I call Weirdness — after Quantum Weirdness.
Finding your Weirdness requires a leap of faith — like anything, you must believe you can do it before you can use it. Many people have found their Weirdness, by Awakening to the fact that the universe is fundamentally Weird and there are strange things that exist all around us, but we simply do not understand them. And, to further confuse us, we are constantly told that these strange things are simply products of the mind — mass hysteria or insanity. This is absolutely not true. It is well known that at the quantum level, nothing is certain, and it is very strange and makes little or no sense. And as humans often do, we ignore it or classify it as impossible. But, as Heisenberg found, nothing is truly impossible, its just merely improbable. And we are finding things like this in our scientific research as we become more educated and look deeper into the structure of the universe. It is a very Weird universe.
There are many examples of humans exhibiting Weirdness each and every day. People have inexplicable abilities, such as psychics, empaths, remote viewers, gurus and illusionists. And there are people with seemingly normal abilities that are merely acts of Weirdness, such as people with formidable charisma that are able to convince hundreds and thousands of people to follow their ideals, whether they are sane or insane — constructive or destructive.
With that as a basis, you first must accept that there is such a thing as Weirdness. And if you believe that, you have taken your first step towards Awakening — and thus are able to start finding what your Weirdness truly is. But its not easy. Finding your Weirdness can be a lifelong journey, or it can be something that you stumble upon by accident. But once you have found it, you then need to learn how to use it to affect the world around you, while adhering to the Logos of the Weird — the tenets that should guide us to a peaceful existence in which we create a beautiful dream for us all, and not the seemingly nightmarish world we’ve created for ourselves.
There are many ways to explore this for yourself.
- Investigate world religions, both past and present, and understand how they are similar and dissimilar.
- Contemplate world philosophies and find the ones that ring truest with you.
- Learn about the universe and the quantum realm.
I have come to understand that the Weirdness is a very real thing, and we are constantly told to ignore it. We are made to doubt our own beliefs, or question our own lives. Your life is shaped by your Weirdness. It is about taking personal responsibility for the course of your life and not allowing others to lead you do their paths for their own selfish reasons. The Weirdness has become less and less apparent throughout the centuries because we have become banal — or made to think that way. And I believe that the more people who embrace the notion that the world can be a better Dream, and that we have our own Weirdness, those who disbelieve won’t be able to suppress it any more.
Take a moment and look at the world news, look at your local city, look within your communities. War, hatred, bombings, mass shootings, organized crime, child abuse, zealots. Why does everyone accept the possibility of a Zombie Apocalypse so readily. Why is doomsday prepping so popular? Why does everyone see the world falling apart? Its because we have not embraced our weirdness — We’ve allowed those who have awakened to lead us down their paths, and their paths have become destructive.
Don’t take my word for it, look around you. Explore yourself. Are you a Dreamer? Have you Awakened? And have you found how to use your Weirdness? Life can be amazing and simple for us all. But we need more people to believe this. The Way of the Weird is merely a pebble dropped in an enormous pond. More of us need to embrace it as a reality. Read the Libellus, find others who want to make the world better, tell others about it. The more who believe, the more we can make a difference.
I will speak again soon.
