Avatarism Presents: Sowelu

The Viking Oracle Rune, Sowelu 

The vikings used the ancient rune symbols to divine their path to glory and as an oracle to help them change their destiny in times of hardship and confusion.  Creatively charged lives are often fraught with emotional hardship and confusion about what to do next. We are, each of us looking for a sign that we are on the right track and heading for the light. Sowelu is the rune which says “I AM THAT”, “I am all that is, was and will be,” and “I am ready for more."

Avatarism Presents: Kriya Yoga

Avatarism Presents: Kriya Yoga

To create or recreate yourself can be like a journey into the flames. The idea of making yourself more excellent and skilled at living life more or less constantly, can seem like torture, even as you are actively burning up these old habits and old thought programs.  There may be an uncomfortable moment when you realize that these things take work. This is normal and should be expected sometimes. Push through, take small steps, and celebrate victories often. 

Kriya yoga is a rich yogic tradition some have used to find the courage to examine the inner landscape of their hearts and minds. In my yoga teacher training one of the most impactful of the practices was the yogic practice of Kriya.  I have used it to meditate, to watch my mind’s subconscious thought cascade, and to hone my thought flow on the ideas and self commands that serve my highest vision for myself. I used Kriya Yoga to isolate some upsets and impeded flow in my relationship and although it was painful, it helped me make some hard choices that were being ignored.

Kim Knight of Auckland who teaches Kria Yoga gives us an explanation of Kria Yoga.

“Most commonly known through the well-known book ‘Autobiography of a Yogi’, Kriya Yoga is a meditative form of yoga which brings deep peace and good health.

About Kriya Yoga: 

Kriya Yoga could best be described as a mixture of meditation, yoga and pranayama (yogic breathing techniques). It is an ancient and powerful system of meditation, which promises enhanced health, peace of mind and a stress-free life. The people of India have practiced it for many centuries under the guidance of trained teachers.

Kriya Yoga approaches the study of the self with a sense of reflection and introspection so that the spiritual traveler may understand the conditions of his / her mind because the ever-changing mind is the biggest barrier to calmness and self-realisation.

For generations, Kriya teachings have been handed down through an unbroken lineage of God-realised masters, which began in 1861 with Mahavatar Babaji when he re-introduced Kriya Yoga to modern times through his disciple Lahiri Mahasaya.

The Meaning of Kriya: 
The word Yoga comes from the root yuj. It has 32 meanings in Sanskrit, but the most appropriate here is to unite. The union of the individual self with the cosmic self, the child of God with God. Therefore, the body with the soul is Yoga.

Kriya Yoga is a supreme science of Self-realisation. It is a scientific technique of action with constant God-consciousness, which ultimately leads to realisation - going beyond the body, mind, intellect, thought, and even the world, to soul-consciousness.

To perceive the soul in every breath, in every moment, in every action, in everything and every being is Kriya Yoga. By the practice of Kriya Yoga meditation, one aspires to lead a life of divine consciousness, which ultimately brings love, purity and joy.”

Avatarism can be a link to a more magical, more powerful, more meaningful existence. Avatarism is a game you play with yourself and the world. Find role models, practice skills, and up-level your character by gaining mastery and honing your own flow. Then by virtue of an up-leveled character, you bring beauty and truth to the rest of the world via your improved, enriched, and emboldened avatar.

We make fearless attempts at excellence on a regular basis and become adepts at living our lives well, because of our willingness to fail, and our inability to stop playing a good game. 

Breathe in and say yes.

Look for co-conspirators.

Become a center of wisdom and skill for others. 

Be willing to change yourself and help others to do the same.

Be a transformational person.

Avatarism Presents: Why Create Your Character?

Avatarism Presents: Why Create Your Character?

With the magnitude of choices we are faced with these days, we need a strong sense of self and self confidence to get what we want out of this life. We are being marketed to and told what to buy and who to be at every turn. If you pay too much attention to this rabble you may end up being defined by the things that outsiders throw at you, and not the character traits you would have chosen for yourself. 

Those who can consciously create their own character and develop unique and workable social personality traits are more able to deal with stress, create affluence, and achieve success in the workplace. People with the skills of Avatarism maintain business relationships, create strong bonds with friends, family, and more easily interact with strangers. 

With Avatarism, some courage, and a willingness to play, you can modify the character program you have been running for good. Using the pure positive approach of Avatarism, you can get off the negative, and go forward into the embodiment of the happy and adventurous person you wish to be.

Avatarism is both an ancient, and a modern technique for modifying character and self image.  With Avatarism you can quickly and permanently alter the way you react to stress by increasing your ability to love your life and yourself. People in love with life and themselves are more productive, more fun to work with, and more attractive to everyone. 

Avatarism creates a culture of excellence for the individual and minimizes the negative force of unworkable personality traits by developing a superhuman focus on a new set of self created values and prime directives.

Avatarism presents, “Acting is embodiment”

Comment

Avatarism presents, “Acting is embodiment”

Today I am a zombie. This morning I was a living god, A meathead jock, A slacker, And a wannabe goth. I am called upon to embody many archetypes as an actor. I put my own personality on hold and live through the character.

What does embodiment do beyond a break from the usual reality?

It informs your unconscious mind that there are other ways of being. These alternate personal realities are powerfully impact full and afterwards you are never quite the same.

 Scared of losing yourself? Here’s my advice. Don’t lose yourself. You are perfect, whole, and ready for more. Avatarism is based on acting, ritual theatre, and many ancient and modern spiritual technologies. Use avatarism like a spice. Sprinkle it on a little at a time. When you are ready, a medicinal dose of embodiment may suit your character. But till then, start small. A clown nose in rush hour traffic. A foreign accent at the supermarket. Practicing balancing a chair on your chin. (carefully) Or learning a new word in Russian.

Observe, emulate, embody, uplevel. Try on the hero’s cloak, hold aloft the heroine’s sword, mutate into a beast of unimaginable power. See what you learn.

Avatarism is a game where you get to make up the content of your own character, hone your own flow, and as a result become a gift to the world.

Best,

Avatarism presents: “The purpose of wonder.”

Comment

Avatarism presents: “The purpose of wonder.”

The skills of Avatarism have led me to want to do more exciting things in my life and that has led me to be able to access states of ecstasy and fear. I have found that the more you access these emotions in a controlled environment, the more you have mastery over them, learn to use them. When mastery of the self occurs through testing the limits of who you are and what you are capable of, paradigm shift occurs within the mind and heart off that intrepid Avatar. Here is a story that illustrates this point.

Scuba diving off the coast of California I witnessed the most amazing sight. Sixty foot long Kelp beds extending down from the surface in cathedral like arches and “Rooms.” I was struck by the beauty of this floating holy place. I was seeing natural beauty in a whole new way that was alien to me. There were fish of many sizes swimming in and around the dark green tendrils. In the distance, I saw the deep black of the ocean. I had the feeling that I was a child again and I was so excited by the texture, and the size, and the movement in the warm current, and I was overjoyed and full of wonder. My mouth would have dropped open if I didn’t have a respirator in it.

Just  then I see another diver come swimming towards me. I thought this was weird because we were supposed to stay in buddy groups of two divers at all times. He started gesticulating  towards my head and I got the idea that there might be something lurking behind me, like a huge, hungry something. But it wasn’t a shark, or a whale,or even a sea cucumber. The diver turned out to be the instructor and after he swam up to me, he put his hand on my shoulder and started to bring me up to the surface, a hundred feet up. I had popped an O ring and there was oxygen escaping from my tank and soon I would be out of air.

I had only been diving three times after my lessons in a West Hollywood pool so I didn’t know what the hell was going on. We swam a few feet then paused to decompress and we handed back and forth his respirator as mine had now run out completely his training and expertise saved my life. As I rose from the water and climbed onto the boat I realized that I was still in that state of wonder from thr kelp beds. The life threatening situation actually took a backseat to the totally amazing natural wonder of it all. I was neither scared nor bothered by the whole, “no oxygen thing.”

It seems like  wonder has a kind of anti depressant, or anti anxiety action. Wonder prevented me from freaking out in what could have been a really bad scene. (If you swim to the top suddenly from a depth of a hundred feet, you could risk air bubbles forming in your blood and get the bends, a very dangerous condition)

Children have wonder, watch them find something new. Eyes wide, open mouth or smiling, eyebrows raised in rapt attention. Being a clown in Cirque Du Soleil gave me a potent example of this when the director Michelle Laprise told me that that is what they look for in performers, Wonder. I saw glowing examples while performing as well, on the faces of the audience members.

With adults you have to give them a lot of whizbang and fervor to push em’ into wonder. Kids are easy, “got your thumb!” and they freak! Adults seem to need more and more intense and fantastical stimuli to bring on the wonder. But wait, all is not lost, you can re-learn wonder, by simply imitating wonder until it occurs. This really works. 

Look closer at nature, closer……there!

Open your eyes real wide, open mouth, or smile, eyebrows arching.

Now you’re doing……“The wonder face!”

It may feel weird, but keep it up for a minute and look at stuff, see what gets activated. 

Wonder is a great additive to a normal day. Use it for play, loving, appreciation, surprise, and any other emotion really, it pairs nicely.-iRev Alexander Polinsky

The mind of a child is easily in wonder, and super elastic in its ability to learn, copy, and execute games. The adult mind can reason, draw from a wealth of experiences, and stay calm when intensity arises.

Know both, the child mind and the adult mind. Use both to balance play and discernment together. 

Be wonderful today.

Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism presents: “How to become a SUPERHERO in your lifetime”

These are some of the notes that I used to teach the Avatarism section of the “Vivation/Flow/Avatarism Superhero Training.” It was a really special event oranized by Paul Hughes of Vivation Int., with the amazing Teafaerie and Thom of Flowtemple, in 2010.

I hope this gives you some reality on Avatarism and how to manifest it in the game of your life. 

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

“AVATARISM CAN TURN FANTASY INTO ACTION” - Alexander Polinsky

breathe.

Say “yes!” (loud)

You are perfect, whole, and free to up-level. 

Welcome home…….I assert that we are made in the image of the evolving hero. On the brink of greatness, and capable of so much awesome, one can hardly contain the babble of bubbling possibilities present in every moment for ones such as us. We can ferment the culture of awesome in our lives, on the real world platform, for each other, and for the good of the planet. We are unlimited in our capacity for skill collecting, compassion, ambition, and loving.

breathe. 

Stagnation is death,  we were all made to move. You have to move! Wherever we are in the time line of our adventure, we can unlock the door to something stimulating, up-leveling, and ultimately, life changing. Moving the body is essential to health. Yoga, flow arts, dance, coitus, all good for the body. Move and flow everyday to stay in your body. Your body is your spaceship, it needs maintenance my friends.

Breathe.

Be a conscious consumer. Inquire and learn about where your food and goods come from. If you consume junk, you are junk. It’s as simple as that. What you consume, you become. BOOKS, MOVIES, TV, FOODS, DRINKS, MEDICINES, AND EVEN FRIENDS. If these things that you consume are not upholding you and helping you create the highest vision you have for yourself, you need to trade up for something better. 

The game of Avatarism is about finding creative ways to up-level your real world platform character. There are rewards, you get achievement points in the form of respect, love, friendship, great sex, fame, and superpowers. You cannot help but to be more awesome, when you do this work. 

Consciously create your character. 

Costume yourself in the clothes, ethics, essence, and style, of your highest Avatar self. If who you have been is not working, change! It’s not hard, its a game. Play with your ability to learn new things and met new people AS this enhanced character. Add skills to your arsenal, execute coordinated acts of Awesome, up-level your character steadily, and with passion. Re-create yourself as a hero, use your new powers to help the world, and your creative acts of heroism may live forever.

“AVATARISM, the squeaky back door to Enlightenment.”

-Alexander Polinsky

“Control your destiny 42% more, Guaranteed.” -Bob Funky “The Meta-Sapian”

Breathe.

SAVING/HEALING THE HUMAN RACE IS A HUGE TASK!

 Help them by improving yourself. The poor, angst riddled, sarcastic, frazzled, urban masses, wet wired to copy all they see an hear, have little inkling of their ability to change themselves or discern the workable data from the glut available to us from the interwebs, and the media. We have been at the mercy of degenerate samples, and inferior programming all our lives. But doncha’ cry, We can invent a new more excellent self, and use the self as the vessel for acts of incredible awesome. We can embody this thing into realization.

Embrace the chaos, for from chaos comes the building blocks to a brilliantly organized system.-Alexander Polinsky

AVATARISM, A KIND OF “SKILL SOUP” THAT YOU MAKE WITH RARE INGREDIENTS COLLECTED FROM SOURCES THAT YOU FIND THROUGH SEEKING, INSTEAD OF JUST COPYING WHATEVER COMES BY.  MAYBE YOU WEREN’T CONSCIOUS ENOUGH TO REALIZE THE DANGER OF LETTING OTHERS RANDOMLY PROGRAM YOUR BIO COMPUTER, BUT NOW…….YOU ARE AWAKE.

“No longer awkward, and heavy, but light, and ready to move.”-Martha Growham 

breathe.

The true, global, citizen, taking the best parts, from all the great paths, would come to some combination that suited hir. As all of those religions, schools of thought, or styles of living have evolved, mutated, and erred, so do we. We will mirror the evolution of all great works of art and become more beautiful and coordinated as we go. We have the right, and ability, to evolve our spirituality and our character over time, And in doing so, create a unique road to greatness, and excellence. 

“Hone your own flow”-Dan Gordon Levitt

“Ferment your own culture.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Upholding Avatars.

Learn the secret identity of your tribe’s members, the inner super hero. Tell your group what you want to be, listen and be of service with that knowledge. When you forget who you are, or fall on your face, there will be the ones who can tell you who you are becoming, so you may start from there, not get back into the same old thing that brought you here to this particular breaking point. There are non player characters who will warn you and direct you to go back where you have come from. Run from those ones. They are the Gorgons, the terrible and seductive ones who mean to drain your spirit, peck at your uniqueness till it is gone, and keep you the same as you were, to comfort themselves! To truly uphold another, you must be on your true path, and be willing to receive that same blessing/guidance. 

Your word is your wand.

breathe.

Examine all indwelling thought, and outward projected speech with the light of truth. Use your word to direct your action towards positive creativity. What you say about your world and your fellow avatars on the path, reverberates for longer than we know. Watch your communications for sarcasm, for the child inside does not understand sarcasm. Watch your communications for negativity (its literally addictive), Be excellent with your word, have full knowledge of it’s upholding power, and it’s destructive power.

Fake it till you make it.

No human ever sprang fully formed from their mother’s womb, and no avatar was fully embodied spontaniously. These adjustments to character, habitual thought process, and skill set happen in stages. The important thing is to be open to the phenomenon of up-leveling. You can up-level fast or slow, but you have to believe in your own capacity to change and grow. This takes confidence.

The game of Avatarism is being created now. By all of us. We are the music makers and the dreamers of dreams. We are the ones we have been waiting for. “There,” is place you have come from…….“Here,” is the door……fling it open, and start your glorious run.

breathe.

It’s going to be really fun.

Not serious.

Just important!

 

Start acting…..diferent.

You are Avatar.

xoxo

Alexander Polinsky

AVATARISM PRESENTS: Be the Captain of your inner tides.

Comment

AVATARISM PRESENTS: Be the Captain of your inner tides.

I am on this journey of up leveling on the real world platform. I am here for real, feeling my feelings, and taking the hits and lessons, as they come. Some lessons hit harder than a bull elephant on PCP. If you are sober and can really monitor your inner tides, your wildly fluctuating moods, your adrenaline, your dopamine, your body/drug reactions, you are lucky! You are alive and aware, you might also be in a kind of hell. 

Nothing hurts and heals like self awareness. Every snarky joke, every little snide comment, every time you compare yourself to another or deem it appropriate to have any kind of violent reaction on the entire spectrum of tantrums to murder. You kill your ability to love yourself. You dirty your emotional view screen with the crap of a lifetime. Many of my fellow monkey descendents are living in a media induced state of enragement of some kind or another. We/they may think that they are being themselves, but here’s a shock. 

Everything we do is a ritualized performance to show the universe who we really are. Make no mistake, we choose every action and reaction and live with the result. There is no mommy and daddy to follow us around and keep us honest. We have ourselves, possibly a great friend, and maybe a dog, cat, or lizard to keep us in check. Every other creature we encounter is a mirror in some sense. 

Look deep into the situation that causes you pain and disharmony. What can be said about it? Is it chronic? Does it hurt? Does it get me what I want? Does it support loving myself?  Does it help my ultimate goal of furthering my great work? If not, purge the behavior, in favor of another way to be.

My dog is 10 years old and learns new tricks all the time. I have to be patient and sweet with him. So to I have to be patient and sweet to myself. Like my epic friend and art partner Chris Adams says "if punishment worked, the Police would actually be succeeding at their job" Punishment cripples most souls and condemns them to “BAD PERSONHOOD”

I challenge you to begin to monitor yourself minute to minute for lapses in harmony, balance, humor, and patience. Do good things for yourself and feed your body good food and sweet entertainments that teach you more about the best life has to offer. Make the changes in yourself that you wish everyone else would do. 

Be good art, be excellent, be a player, play a good game, and the reward of this magick will be health, happiness, good relations with persons, animals, and lands. Nothing is more important than your brilliant adventure towards the mission of the great work of your life.

Live it up lover,

Alexander Polinsky

Avataism presents: “Passion and Sacrifice”

Comment

Avataism presents: “Passion and Sacrifice”

This is a blog about Avatarism and what it may be doing to you even now!

Avatarism may be a game that you already play. Even if it’s only once a year at Halloween; you dress up as your fantasy character, and feel the energy shift in you. You may put on your grandmothers shawl and suddenly feel her warm and inviting arms around you, or you may wear superman underwear, or have tattoos, maybe you just dance like Michael Jackson in the dark, by yourself.

Embodying another type of person can give you some of their powers. I wear a clown nose at really inappropriate times and it actually makes my life better. It saved me from 2 traffic tickets!!!!! The universe appreciates a little play in the flow, so play becomes wholly important, when you know.

 When I embody another character or archetype, i can be more spontaneous, I suddenly have a unique perspective on the mundane, I am living in a slightly sharper reality. Who doesn’t want to be a pirate, or a Kitten, or a porn star, or a mail man. I will not judge you, I will uphold you. That’s the game. Tell me who you want to be and I’ll uphold you.  

Can I get an, “I’m In!?”

Because, shit! What’s life about if you can’t feel really awesome about yourself some/most of the time?  You may be missing out on 2 of the most fun, free, drugs in the universe. CONFIDENCE and JOY!

Avatarism is the meta-programming tool that I used to chang my life, again and again and always for good. From being a movie actor, to doing army ranger camp, enthogenic roller coaster tests,  fire dancing, skydiving, and singing the national anthem….in H.S. homeroom…..in a dress, . I am unleveled!!!

Everything is a trip, and the trip, is the point. -iRev. Alexander Polinsky

So as I was saying, every passion has its corresponding sacrifice. What you spend your time on, you begin to specialize in, and be shaped by. Habitual happenings in your day are either assisting you in your goal achieving, or robbing you of your life-force. 

 You may wonder why you need three starbucks just to function, and a beer/wine/sleeping pill to sleep. Some of us are numbing our feelings out and then amping ourselves up for more numbing. Amp, numb,amp,numb,amp, numb…..on and on……and all to keep up the illusion that it’s all working. That we are happy. That this stuff is the best that life has to offer. 

Bordom is a choice, even if you are in a small cell with no windows. Create a program of focused, positive ideas. Breathe, slow down the subconscious idea cascade.

Repeat:

*“I love you, I am you” -Dr. Ahee 

*“I am a living god(dess) conscious of my power, able to transmute, heal, and love. -iRev. 

"My entire day is about the magic of possibility” -iRev. Alexander Polinsky.

“Yoiks” -Woody allen

Interrupt your pattern, and create a whole new moment in the next moment, if you want. Free of the ideas, constraints of the last.

Make dead sure, you are doing something that makes you feel alive, every day. Put on a clean shirt, sweep up the glass, pay the bills, and then embody your highest vision you have for yourself today. 

I watered my garden and saw a Praying Mantis, picked a ripe apple off my tree, and ate it for breakfast in the sunshine. It’s simple folks. Make your view screen microscopic to see the rainbow in a drop of water. Look deeper. 

Loving you,

Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism presents, “Death by Sparkles”

Comment

Avatarism presents, “Death by Sparkles”

Greetings all!

Adey Bell, an Avatarism corrospondent in Southern Oregon writes a brief piece on what can happen if you are, become, or plan to embody a sparkly avatar. “Sparkly” refers to the quality of brilliance and magnetism that comes from a person who is living within their ideal scene for themselves. Happy, productive, self directed, radically self reliant, or just damn fulfilled in their life.

This can create the situation where others see you as the ideal for themselves, either as a mate, or as a role model and that can land you fans, lovers, and even enemies.

The culture of personal transformation that is contained in the game of Avatarism is the doorway for some of us. Others would rather hold tight to what they have, and become rigid. They risk breakdown due to the degrading effect of time and the erosion of all things.

“Transformation is cultivation”-iRev

Best to have a culture of transformation in place to deal with the inevetable life changes ahead. We have a huge job! The people on earth need to wake up to our connection to the earth, the cosmos, and each other. Some just aren’t ready.  Let’s be kind to the mundanes and encourage them. But recognize the dangers! If they spit venom in your face, “shields up,” and get out of there. We have a mission to save the world! No time for evil D-bags! 

Excelsior!

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Death by Sparkles

 By Adey Bell

Being Brilliant and Integrity can mean:

-people you love may give you shit because you’re happy
-you may loose “friends” because you’re living your dream
-you may constantly confront people everywhere you go because you shine
-you can be ignored, embraced, then destroyed
-you may be ridiculed, written off or laughed at because you believe all the world is love and you live that truth. In the face of what seems to be opposite, you still have the courage to be love
-you may feel utterly alone when those who have lost their faith try to persuade you that yours is in vein.
-you may blast someone who’s tone level isn’t ready to receive yours, and in all good intentions, obliterate their ego, resulting in an awkward interaction where you don’t “see” each other even tho you’re standing in front of them….

it takes courage to be in authentic truth with what is. it takes self mastery to know what your truth is in any given moment, it takes maturity to take inventory of the situation and act accordingly

it’s not pretty
but it’s beautiful

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

Be well, be beautiful, be fearless, be free,

Be love.

Avatarism presents, “Awesomosis”

Comment

Avatarism presents, “Awesomosis”

Avatarism presents,

“AWESOMOSIS” def. The process of gradual or unconscious assimilation of awesome ideas, awesome knowledge, etc.

A process by which molecules of awesome tend to pass through a semipermeable membrane from a less concentrated awesome into a more concentrated awesome, thus equalizing the concentrations of awesome on each side of the membrane.

You don’t have to try hard. The things you want may be easier than you think. The psychic resistance you are creating in the form of procrastination, fear, and doubt may be the only obstacle you face in reality.

What if you only needed to be in the presence of awesome to become more awesome. What if the first step to stardom is to meet a star and decide that he is a regular person just like you, or a billion dollar CEO came from your neighborhood, it all becomes easier when your psychic barriers are pulled down.

You have a super power to magnetize any idea, person, or group.

Say out loud that you can win, say out loud that you are the chosen one, say out loud that you are never truly alone, and you have cast the first spell towards your victory.

Meta-programming is real magic, you can hack your own mind, and reprogram your own drives for good. 

You must be diligent in your programming, old and inferior programs are deeply imbedded in your system. You might have to take a vacation to a more understanding and nurturing environment and seek out like minded Avatars or people.

Find the ones that you admire for their great work and attitude and use “awesomosis” to become a bit more like them. I authorize you to steal the light from the sparkly ones. They have enough, and the real sparkly ones want to share.

(Awesomosis was coined by Adey Bell Garner while dining on bison steak and a glass of Fester Chardonnay with the iRev. in Hollywoodland Ca.)       www.Adeyeightmusic.com

Avatarism presents: Warrior With a capitol W!

I have long been a supporter of the meme of the creative warrior. Having supported myself basically since I was 11 years old on my art, I know the power of focus, confidence, perseverance, and moxie. The idea of transferring the warrior arts into creative and constructive areas, rather than it being just the domain of the destructive, defensive, offensive is not a new idea. We all could use a little power in our breakfast cereal. It doesn’t me you have to get mean and surly about you watercolor practice kids. I’m just saying that your artist Avatar can and should be one that possesses a surge-ability, the strength to push into areas that may be threatening to your mundane self. Self promotion, self confidence, and the ability to move through blocks as if they were an enemy phalanx that poses no real obstacle. A wimpy phalanx to be pushed aside with the power of an expert warrior. If the obstacle becomes daunting, you put on your war face, and jump right into the fray. Every warrior needs rest, solitude, healing, and care. So don’t neglect your wounds and your respite, but do look upon yourself as a warrior for your own cause. You are the hero in this epic story, not Eeyore from Whinny The Poo, or a sad sack, you are the I AM presence that has always been and will always be. You are that which shines, sparkles, and lives for the fight. This is it, and it’s perfect. 

Here is a bit of genius from Jonathan Zap about changing the warrior archetype into warrior with a capitol W! Enjoy….

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

I recently recorded a podcast of The Way of the Warrior  <<<<click the link to hear it/ download it. I’ve found this life stance to hold up even during the darkest moments.  Here’s the first couple of paragraphs:

WHAT IS A WARRIOR?

Why is being a Warrior important, and what is meant by being a Warrior anyway?

Language is so often a barrier to understanding. The word, “ Warrior ,” for example, presents many problems. Sometimes the best available word has a shadow, a dark area of connotations that may be alien or even contradictory to what we are trying to convey. If we want to convey the possibility of a more effective focus in our lives, the word “discipline” comes to mind. But “discipline” can also mean to punish, and our Puritan heritage gives the word an unwanted sadistic resonance. In Sanskrit the nearest word to discipline is “tapas,” which has a range of meanings such as the use of austerities to generate and conserve transformational inner heat.  There’s no sadistic or punitive connotation to “tapas,” but it is not a word readily available to most people. “Warrior” is a word that is readily available, but, like the word “discipline,” it carries much unwanted baggage. The word “war” is in “Warrior,” and the connotations of aggression and violence are obvious. But “Warrio r” is also a word that in certain circles has been undergoing major redefinition and rediscovery.  Essentially, the archetype of the Warrior is being salvaged from millennia of patriarchal associations.  The best definition I have been able to come up with for “Warrior” that reflects its archetypal  meaning is as follows: A Warrior is someone who strives to live alertly,  intelligently, attuned to the moment in order to serve life affirming  transpersonal values.

Warrior with a capital “W,” is one who efficiently serves life affirming transpersonal aims. A warrior with a lower case “w” could be a mercenary, one who serves selfish aims, or one who serves transpersonal but anti-life aims — a Nazi SS officer, for example. Someone could have rippling muscles, be a potent martial artist, highly efficient, focused and determined and yet only be a warrior. Someone else could be confined to a wheel chair and yet be an exemplary Warrior.

AVATARISM PRESENTS…..  “Your Sparkle Faucet’s At A Dribble Baby”

Comment

AVATARISM PRESENTS….. “Your Sparkle Faucet’s At A Dribble Baby”

 

When I was a kid actor on Charles in Charge I came into contact with upwards of 600 people per week. That was how many people came to see the weekly taping. After five years and a hundred or so shows I did notice a lot about the people in the audience. There were ones I remembered and ones I forgot. 

There were ones who looked like they were half asleep but still moving around, there were zombies, followers, nervous ones, the bitter, the sickly, the sweet, the old souls, the ecstatic, fanatic, star struck, and lost. So many different archetypes, and they all filed into our studio and sat there for about five hours each Thursday. 

Once in a while I would meet someone who appeared to be a complete stranger and they’d say “Hey Alex!” I would look kinda stumped and they would get a bit sore and say “Don’t you know who I am?” “Shit,"I’d say in my most honest 11 year old way "I meet so many people!” Which wouldn’t do any good for that person’s ego because it’s just confirming what they secretly know is true…..Their sparkle faucet is at a dribble. 

That means that there was nothing at the time of our meeting that sparked my interest, made them stand out, or gave me cause to think of them as significant. As I write this I feel a bit guilty because I guess I’d like to be the kind of human who finds things in people that I can enjoy, admire, and remember. But alas, this is not so. There are the mundanes, the hopeless, the Abercrombie/Old Navy/ Gap wearing masses who think they can buy originality from a chain store, or repeat lines from the TV or People Magazine, and be a real person. 

If you watch Entertainment Tonight, or Extra, or E! TV, you are losing your mind. Minute by minute, you are giving your brain cells to Proctor and Gamble, Lever Bros, and Nabisco. You are becoming one with the products and celebrities that you worship. The people who actually create the culture you consume are more real than you, and thats just what they want. Stare into my eyes and suck, suck, suck the nipple of mass media. You will soon be as forgettable as a dust bunny in a dust storm. Laughable, and sad, but soooo true. 

Avatarism may be just another word to you, but I caution you to listen to the wisdom behind the ism.

CONSCIOUSLY CREATE YOUR CHARACTER ON THE REAL WORLD PLATFORM. This means, up level yourself from the state of mundane and homogenous, to a creature that gains skill sets chosen by you, and don’t stop practicing till you have mastery of those skills. 

UPHOLD OTHER AVATARS AND THEY WILL UPHOLD YOU. You are not, have never been, and can not exist alone. What we make fun of, hate, and try to belittle, we cannot have. So if you are annoyed by someone making a push to learn, transform, or up level, You will be left out of the game baby. Provide support, love, and acceptance to your fellow mundanes in flux, and you build a support system for present and future awesome. 

TELL THEM WHO YOU ARE AND THEY WILL REMIND YOU WHEN YOU BECOME LOST OR DISPASSIONATE. There is no use giving pity, it serves no purpose other than to soothe a wound. Pity does not heal. Giving a friend a little “poor baby” is a great salve and is a good deed. But in the next moment, a more worthwhile communication is to remind that person who they really are, away from the upset and the hurt. The way to do that is to actually inquire after who that person is creating themselves as. Who do they want to be in their highest version of themselves, what is their Avatar of Power.

Living god

God of love

Circus clown

Superman

Sex kitten

Tiger mama

Prince of air

Medicine shaman, healer, or hero. 

If people don’t remember you, it’s your fault. 

I say this unto you, turn up the faucet, be love, be sparkling, look deep into people’s eyes, notice them and listen for the cue to help them achieve their highest vision for themselves. If you judge them not worthy, scary, evil, or vampires, go find someone else to impact, and do it. Nothing happens in this world without all of us. We are one. The rules apply to all. Use your time wisely and for good, use humor love and your inherent appeal, be it sexy, intellectual, quixotic, or any gift the universe gave you.

Just use it. 

Turn up the sparkle faucet and let the world bathe in your glory.

In loving memory,

iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Avatarism presents: Show up as your character and everyone will play along.

Who are you being right now, tomorrow, yesterday? How will that Avatar effect your ability to get what you want on the real world platform. This life is a game! Are you a NPC (Non player character) controlled by the matrix, or are you a PC (player character) in search of philosophic gold and treasures of the mind.

No one expects to meet a superhero. Most people are sarcastic, jealous, needy, and sad. They just mask it with loads of rich toxic food, drugs, and inferior entertainment. They literally kill their energetic field with crap of every kind all the while thinking that they are actually living. All that gets pulled into sharp and uncomfortable focus when said mundane meets a person that is embodying an Avatar of some magnetism and power.  What if YOU were that person of great magnetism and undeniable sparkle also known as SUPERHERO that someone got to meet. They weren’t expecting it, they don’t meet people like you often, you become one of their FAVORITE PEOPLE! This is no trick, its actual, factual, and useful. I’d venture to say it’s the most useful dramatic ritual you can use day to day, day or night, 24/7, 365. 

There is a myth that the highest accomplishment of your character in action is to “JUST BE YOURSELF.” But when you think about it, what are you, but a collection of ideas and sound bites copied from your parents, friends, tv shows, movies, books, and games, your victories, and misfortunes. This “JUST BE YOURSELF,” advice is usually given to poor slobs who are trying to meet or score with someone that are attracted to. I am not saying lie, I’m saying you are perfect, whole, and ready for more. I am authorizing you to not spend another day locked in a sad sack, mundane, self deprecating state of non awesome. 

Lets explore how a little Avatarism can help get you why you want. Mock up the Avatar of the TALENT AGENT. You are sure of yourself, you dress well, you are in possession of a stable of great and talented artists who you can speak about with assuredness and passion. You would walk into a room….scratch that, you take the room with a look, a well placed pause, and then tell them that you have the answer to their prayers, and they believe you. 

Fake it till you make it should be written at the top of every door in your house till you GET IT IN! Every famous, infamous, genius, successful, and otherwise awesome person in the world has done this. They walked onto the bridge when they were scared of falling, jumped out the plane when they thought they would sh*t their pants, and came out on stage in front of the crowd when they thought that maybe they would cry, or run, or freeze. 

I am the iRev. Alexander PolinSKY, I am Captain Sky of the Rogue Mechanica, I am Jim Henson, Jim Morrison, Kermit the Frog, Crowley, Parsons, Hubbard, and Dali. I am that which I was not before. I am that which I was afraid to embody. I am he who dwells in the realm of possibility, transformation, and enthusiasm. 

I am that. You are too.

You are Avatar.

Love always,

Alexander PolinSKY

Avatarism Presents: Mission Re-Up And Spot Check

Avatarism Presents: Mission Re-Up And Spot Check

THE MISSION IS TO BE EXCELLENT, AND SAVE THE WORLD!

THE MISSION IS SELF MASTERY, AND THE ASCENT FROM THE THE PRE-PROGRAM OF THE MUNDANE TO THE AVATARISTIC META-PROGRAM OF DYNAMIC, MAGNETIC, AND EXTATIC TO BE ALIVE.

THE MISSION RESULT IS;

A WORLD WITH SAFETY FOR US AND OUR CHILDREN. 

CLEAN WATER, AIR, AND LAND.

MAGNIFICENT,  HEALTHY, HUMANS INTERACTING ON THE REALWORLD PLATFORM WITH LOVE, COMPASSION, AND FIERCE INDIVIDUALITY.

THE REALIZATION OF THE TRUE INNER MISSION, TO FIND AND MASTER YOURSELF.

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

The usefulness of the mission is that we get to aspire to greatness on our own terms. 

We are able to create our own path, to our own sort of glory, defined by the the individual.

We can pray on our feet to CPU (the creative power of the universe).

CPU does not need us to kneel in sublimation, or sacrifice ourselves, we are one!!!!

“Holy” may be described as spiritually important.

Play is holy. Embodying archetypes is holy. Mocking up a skill set and mastering the steps to those skills is holy. Upholding avatars is holy. Creating your highest vision for yourself is holy.

Failure is holy, only if you awaken to the lesson of failure, and it’s possibilities for up leveling.

The continuing mission is to improve ourselves, out of the recognized norms of society. To self create our Avatar of immense magnetism and excellent character. To develop the sort of personality that can stride across the bridge as spirit, a truly powerful and enlivened being, a being of light. 

To truly occupy ourselves and the land on which we live with a spirit that inspires trust, love, and excitement.

We are reprogramming the world with our magic. 

“SPEAK YOUR TRUTH, YOUR WORDS ARE MAGIC, AND WITH LOVE, YOUR WORD IS YOUR WAND” -IREV. 2011

To all who wish for a better life. 

to all who suffer in silence and loneliness.

to all who feel like there is more than this.

To all who have an idea that deep inside, there is something great within us.

We are the magic makers, the dreamers of dreams, the fire spinners and walkers, the organizers and creators of the new aeon. We have will, we have imagination, and we have a brain that loves reconfiguration.

WE ARE THE ONES WE HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR.

All together now……

I AM AVATAR!

Avatarism presents, Living gods, superheroes, and dramatic ritual for up-leveling.

There is a way to up-level your character in the real world platform. You can change your self image from mundane, to living godhood if you wish. You don’t even have to leave your living room. The way to impress your nervous system and change your brain for good is so simple, a kid can do it. In fact, I did it as a kid, and it helped me become a superhero for millions of kids when I voiced characters on Teen Titans, Legion of Superheroes, Batman, Transformers, Ben Ten, Starship Troopers, and more. I am living proof that Avatarism works. 

Before I discovered my power to up-level my character and began to implement my ideas about programming myself, I was a mess. Diagnosed as OCD, borderline turrets’s syndrome, chronically depressed, had repetitive ticks of the hand and face, horrible reoccurring dreams, suicidal thoughts, and taking anti depressants.

Out of desperation and deep curiosity, I began researching meditation, mantra, world religions, brainwashing, hypnosis, bio feedback, meta-programming, brain changing drugs, dramatic ritual, the Occult, brain science, and NLP. I found that all the most effective techniques were using dramatic rituals or games to imprint the person with a new set of beliefs about himself. I was astonished that more people weren’t using these techniques to meta-program themselves, but it wasn’t till my training as an actor intersected with all this knowledge, that I truly found my recipe for up-leveling.

I was a child actor since the age of 4. I starred in films and TV shows, most note-ably  the comedy “Charles in Charge,” (circa 1989) My father taught me the basics of the craft and introduced me to sense memory, building characters, and his training gave me the ability to create “reality,” on stage. I felt different after each part I mastered. I gained the skills and confidence of each character as if I was that character. This was my first lesson in the life changing power of drama. 

Drama is older than language,

we are creatures of drama,

and our world is shaped by it continuously. 

I have coached people by using my own brand of Avataristic dramatic ritual for the last 11 years. I have seen Avatarism work. We can treat people as living gods and see them altered in amazing ways. These formally mundane people gain insight into their old and degenerate programming and rewire themselves. Not only do they gain powers, but they use their power for good, to help others up-level. We can uphold each other to the highest version of ourselves that we can imagine. We can allow our fellow humans to be the superheroes they want to be. Stand back, and enjoy the show. 

“What you can creatively think of, you can powerfully become.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

Meditate on your power character, see yourself as your avatar, mock up a spirit army, and lead them into battle against a formidable foe. Close your eyes and become the warrior god, the priest, shaman, or leader of mankind, and when you open your eyes, you will have had the experience in another dimension, that of mind, but in terms of meta-programming yourself, there is no difference. Your confidence and magnetism is increased, you may cry with joy, or stand more firm in your place. 

Try saying this, or writing your own Avatar Aphorism…..

“I am a living god/superhero/star of my own movie, conscious of my power, able to change myself, heal my physical and emotional wounds, and transmute pain. My will is the way. My love and upholding of others, is my gift. My great work is to consciously create my character in the real world. My mission is to start, move forward, and never stop”

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

We can recreate ourselves as we wish. We can become ethical when we have been evil. We can control our inner voice of fear with a stronger outer voice of determination. I am filled with excitement and hope that Avatarism may be the game that saves lives, creates living gods, and raises our confidence to the level of superheroes. We have no need for violence! We can change the world through conscious character building, skill collecting, up-leveling on the real world platform, and dramatic ritual. 

“We are perfect, whole, and ready for more.”-iRev. Alexander Polinsky

We have so much to do, time is ticking away, the seconds become minutes and hours. There is little we can do to change others, but we can change ourselves, that is a noble game, a great game! I empower you to seek and employ the ideas of Avatarism as I have presented them in this blog. Create your Avatar, elect your own super gurus from the past, fiction, fantasy, and beyond. Collect skills instead of tricks. Forego manipulation of others in favor of a developed, personal magnetism, based on excellence and mastery.

I will be teaching these concepts to anyone who want’s to learn.

The techniques OF AVATARISM are simple and life changing. Please join me in the game.

Be your character.

Be a player.

Play for what you want.

Be your Avatar.

All together now….say YES!

Avatarism Presents: Being A Living God And Supporting Yourself

I am creating myself as a living god/superhero/star of my movie every day. That means the confidence that I mock up, is greater than I feel somedays, I do it anyway. The actions I endeavor to take are beyond the mundane and normal self I may have been yesterday, I take those actions anyway. The words I speak and the ideas I communicate are the best and most life affirming/situation changing, that I can muster even though they may be scary or confronting. 

I may feel like shit now, but I know that this is my game. Avatarism can be a religion/path/process of self cultured meta-programming towards the goal of action/satisfaction. I incite a victorious cycle, even when my shadow self says “give up,” “not worthy,” or “hide.” Meta-programming is a skill that can be learned. Robert Anton Wilson wrote that self programming will become more and more important in this century as access to information increases. If we can know ourselves well, we can track our degenerate programming in real time, and combat systemic black magic with positive and creative memes. It can be done. 

Temple Grandin, the famous autistic designer and lecturer was unable to touch others and hugging gave her intense emotional pain. She used her creativity to develop a way to experience the calming feeling of a hug without the human contact that disturbed her. She built a hugging machine out of wood to “hug,” her. Her creative and physical solution to an emotional problem was the catalyst that brought her more into the world and allowed her to bring her genius and wisdom to the cattle industry in which she later revolutionized, and the lecture circuit which she now excels in. Like Temple Grandin, how can we design a system to hug/comfort/or support us in our up-leveling, and quest for our highest vision for ourselves.

“I inspire myself first and then set my sights on the rest of my tribe and world.”
