I started this blog because I have come to a place in my life where I need to see that which cannot be seen by the human eye, by any means necessary. Sensory deprivation chambers, primal scream, pure energy and, of course, film. I know. Why is film in this group of words? Right? Well, allow me to explain myself. I have spent a large part of my life in pursuit of answers to those bothersome questions like…..Who am I? What happens to me when I die? Why do all religions seem to spring from the same well?…stuff like that. And this pursuit has taken me around the world and to every state in America. From having a mushroom ceremony with Indians in the mountains of Oaxaca to speaking with a 96 year old woman for hours at the top of the pyramid at Teotihuacan. I have asked similar questions to Holy men, celebrities, scientists, artists, philosophers, and everyday people from around the globe. And I have found a common thread that runs through all of these conversations about the aforementioned bothersome questions. Calm reflection and intense focus that lead to the light and an incredible sense of joyous wonder. The kind of answers you get when you speak to people who have had near death experiences. Now, if you think about walking into a movie theatre and really focusing on what is happening up on the screen, you find that time has passed without you realizing it. I can’t help feeling that I have benefited somehow each and every time I see another film. It’s like going out and gathering up other people’s experiences and storing them away for winter. You have just gained an epic experience in a matter of 2 hours. Doesn’t this make you wonder about how incredibly capable human beings are at learning at alarming rates? Well, for me, as a lover of film as well all things metaphysical, it seems that this movie experience is very similar to focused meditation. And if my travels have taught me anything it’s that anything that is conceivable is possible. I know this sounds like a stretch but I will promise you this…….after hearing some of the experiences I have had you will come to understand where I am coming from. Even if no one ever reads this, it is something I must do. I can’t remember how many times people have said “you should write this stuff down”. So here goes….I am Dartanion2 and I have floated out of my body. It’s time to talk about the places I’ve been………the things I’ve seen……and the beauty that is us…….cheers!
And so it begins….

I am finding your posts so fascinating. I have asked the same questions you have. I have seen the hypocrisy of churches, felt the Holy Spirit within me revealing graphic experiences in my sleep and visions awake too in my lifetime. There is so much more past this veil of life of the physical…..senses and experiences we can tap into beyond the limitations of our flesh. I am glad you are writing of your experiences. 🙂
I am glad that god has allowed our paths to cross and I look forward to your insightful comments my friend. And I agree with you….there IS more past this veil of our learned perceptions……we need only unlearn and see with new eyes……..your friend…..T

Yes T` you and I have asked those same questions as I`m sure every child throughout time has. What we all need to do is to stop blocking those questions when a child ask`s them! Just answer as best you can and encourage them to investigate for themselves, it not only encourages them to study more but it gives them satisfaction when they find themselves getting some answers. I feel sure that, that is what God wants us to do, he like any father wants his children to learn and progress does he not?
Those answers will eventually come but we need to teach our children to be open minded and not brainwash them into just repeating the bible without properly explaining life to them first. Man is his own worst enemy in a way because we are so narrow minded when it comes to important things like the information we are seeking.
We follow like sheep the speeker who is good at getting our attention but these people only give their view point and force it into people and that is when you get extremists and trouble.
I agree with Cherie there is far too much hypocrisy in the church and that is man`s fault not Gods! and they really need to be brought into the modern era and stop dictating to people information that is at best out-dated and at worst down right wrong. Why for instance does the church refer to sex as a sin? It`s impossible to progress without sex so why do they repeatedly make people feel that they are sinners when they are in fact doing what God wants us to do and that is procreate.
We have rules to live by for a reason! it is the people who preach their own twisted interpretations of those rules that cause all the grief that religion is suffering, God has not caused these problems, religion and belief in God is the most natural thing for a human being, we need to believe in a higher spirit a loving and nurturing spirit.
God gave us free will for a very good reason and that is that we have the freedom to learn and make up our own minds about what we learn and what we choose to learn. That is why when a child asks you a question all you can do is your best!!
We are all born with so many more talents than we use and the reason that we don`t use them properly is because as children we are forced into blocking our minds because of fear of ridicule and those people who do allow their minds to fully develop are given a really hard time because of prejudice.
These talents are there for us all to make use of. If you are able to get information through visions then go ahead and develop that talent, treat it as you would any talent, art, whatever! develop it, grow it to it`s full strength and use it for the good of all you are involved with.
All the sciences are an art, where would we be if we treated medicine like we treat people who are psychic? I know I`ve jumped around here from subject to subject but when you think about it carefully it all comes down to the same thing in the end. We must teach our children to open their minds from day one and to explore all the areas of life with freedom and without prejudice and just let them be free to learn whatever they want. Just be there to guide them and keep them safe, but let them learn.
Show them that God is love and he treasures all his children. It is the few who develop a narrow and twisted reality that are the cause of the worlds religious problems, not God. I`ll bet he gets so very frustrated with us all just like any parent who sees their child make wrong and bad choices in life. All he can do is hope that we all learn from our mistakes and go on to make our lives better through that learning experience and grow in a positive way.
Tony your blog is fascinating and these are the thoughts from my little tin can because of reading it, I hope you like!!
Love to you sweety
I LIKE…….there is a lot more to reply to in this comment of yours……..need a few……i’ll be back G……..smiles…..t xxx
Reblogged this on Metaphysics and the Movies according to Dartanion2 and commented:
“And So It Begins”… is a repost of my very first write here on my blog……..just over one year ago……….it was interesting to go back and read this……….I have covered a LOT of ground since then………over 200 posts……..with viewers in over 70 countries now……….with this as my first post on my blog I realize now that I really was delving into so much more than I initially thought……….my health issues have become a part of this which I did not expect……..and it has actually proven VERY helpful to my health to share this info……….I have covered much of the world of Metaphysics from, and according to, my personal experiences. My posts on films have received more comments and views than I had expected and as you will see in this first, rather hesitant, post……..I learned so much about myself and writing as well………I have over 600 poems on my workstation at Cosmofunnel.com………I have written several new songs for different artists……..but I have grown to the place where I will be pursuing a degree in Metaphysics over the next 34 months……….I am so grateful to God, my friends and family……….and to the many other writers I associate with daily in my most wonderful world of poetry and metaphysical alliances………this initial post………entitled “And So It Begins” has changed my life forever…………and I expect SO MUCH more this upcoming year……….I have so many opportunity’s unfolding before me today because of this VERY first, somewhat clumsy write……and I thank you ALL for your AMAZING support & to Georgina Richardson………this blog’s biggest supporter………….Love and Rockets to you all……….tony xo
