Dragons: the Book

A Light of Dragons…

… a book by, for, and from the dragons

Chapter 0.5: A Brief Overview — or skip this bit and order your copy HERE.

As I walked home from the café this morning, I met a new neighbor – well, not new, as she is both older than I and has lived in this area much longer. In our getting-acquainted chat, she asked what I am working on, and I replied ‘a book about dragons’.

“Ah,” said she, “What about dragons?”

Now there is a great question. As Einstein once said, “If you can’t explain it to a six-year-old, you don’t understand it yourself.” So what about dragons? Why dragons, why now, what new understanding can we come to about dragons? Which dragons are we talking about?

This book is about the dragons that speak to humans, or at least the ones that speak to me; they’ve been in cold storage (or possibly another dimension or timeline, or maybe just another sector, or simply elsewhere) for many years until there are humans who can listen, who can appreciate the who and what of dragons. Plus, of course, they are on the planet right now for specific purposes.
The (sadly late) Terry Pratchett paints a picture of dragons being cooped up in a tightly packed dimension until enough grumbling civil servants – the Supreme Lodge of the Elucidated Brethren of the Ebon Night, to be precise – exhibit sufficient belief to reanimate them with the strength of their resentment.

Unfortunately, the dragon that appears is a (human) projection of the worst aspects of legend: it is only interested in power, gold, and sacrificial virgins. Well, and possibly flying, roaring, and mating, at least when the swamp dragon Errol comes along to court her…

Legend, song, and story all present a similar picture of dragons: evil and greedy, at their most neutral representative of the Chinese five elements, at times wise and helpful to humans, but generally running on a wildly different track than the human race. (That part is true.) Dragons as we have known them in the past are mainly magical in nature (level three), whereas humans (at least in the West) wobble between levels four and five, with a pinch of level six and the occasional dash of level seven. The transrational nature of dragons is challenging for humans whose center of gravity lies at four (religious) and five (scientific) because dragons operate at levels that transcend and include both.

[What are these levels? See my brief description of levels and stages in Spiral Dynamics in Chapter 1, because without that, you won’t make sense of where the dragons are coming from (figuratively speaking) or what they are up to now, here, on this planet.]. Why here? Why now?

Previous readers will know that my professional interest lies in Geotran™, ‘the language of all possibilities’. We use Geotran to clear and reprogram the inner bio-computers that lead to your physical, sensory experience. [After all, just like with electronic computers, what is happening inside governs what you produce or attract on the outside.] In practice, this involves ‘reading the field’. Thus, I have training and experience in detecting the information in the ‘fields’ of energy+information that form the substrate of universal consciousness/creation, and therefore our physical existence. My teacher Dorothy Espiau says, (and Einstein too!), “Everything is field.”

Okay, so what does that concept of ‘field’ have to do with dragons? Everything we create in the physical starts in the nonphysical – that is, in the field. In a sense, our physical world is a crystallization or coalescence of what’s happening the energy fields. The frequency or vibration of that not-yet-manifest energy gets slower and firmer until it shows up in the physical world. That’s the basis of all energy work and all creation, no matter which particular mechanism fits your belief system.

In practice, we see it, we say it, and we receive it. That is, everything starts as an idea in the non-sensory realm before it condenses into the sensory realm. We can see this in my previous profession, architecture, for any built structure must start out as an idea. Although it’s possible that Bishop Berkeley possibly took this to extremes in his concept of idealism, his perspective had some validity — or maybe it’s just my excuse to introduce some limericks:

     There once was a man who said “God 

     Must think it exceedingly odd 

           If he finds that this tree 

          Continues to be 

     When there’s no one about in the Quad.”

     Dear Sir, Your astonishment’s odd. 

     I am always about in the Quad. 

          And that’s why the tree 

          Will continue to be 

     Since observed by, Yours faithfully, God

That is one of the many ways in which humans differ from animals — that we have the power of manifestation through what we see and say. Of all the beings on this planet, we humans are the only ones that have that ability — what is also called the Power of the Word. We see it, we say it, it IS; we bring it into being. Dragons also have the ability to do this, across multiple dimensions, and in greatly compressed timeframes.

Personally, I don’t tend to have original ideas, but I’m terrific at putting together aligned concepts to make a new perspective. So let’s mash together Spiral Dynamics, Geotran, reading the field, the divine feminine, plus five — now six — dragons, stir well, and listen to the message that the dragons have for us now.

As always (in my books at least) we begin with the left-brained view: linear structure, language, and details leading up to the big picture. Pretty much all writing is left-brained — language and logic, you know. So it should be interesting to see how well we manage to grasp the right-brain intuitive ‘big picture’ using left-brained tools.

Chapter 0.5 is, of course, this Overview. Really, this is a description of the structure that left-brained individuals prefer when they want to learn something new. Right-brained people lean into the timeless overview, the big picture, while the left brain loves details of linear logic. Best of all is when the two halves meet in the middle, at the corpus callosum; then we can grasp the big picture and the details at the same time, in the Now.

Here’s where it gets tricky. Typically the way I write books is to find out the names of the chapters and then fill in the spaces. I made a valiant attempt to do so here, in the Overview, and the dragons just looked at me. Do we really need a logically worked out pseudo-scientific flow of dragons in mythology, in fiction, in natural history, in symbolism of various cultures? Does that truly help anyone understand what dragons are doing now, in relation to the human race, and the planet? Not really, and besides, anyone sufficiently interested can do the research themselves. Also, there are some perfectly competent books about the Natural History of Dragons, or Dragons in Story and Legend. All of them speak to how our human conception of dragons is filtered through social and cultural understanding, and so on.

That’s not what the dragons themselves do, and has little to do with what they want us to know. So (after fifteen months of internal struggle) I threw out that kind of book and am sitting down to write directly from dragon consciousness, always allowing for my own filters of human understanding and social conditioning.

They did say I could use the dragon graphics at the start of each chapter, though, so the draft is not entirely wasted.

Chapter 1:  A Foundation of Understanding — what you need (or would be helpful) to know so that the dragon messages make sense. This is where we look at the levels in Spiral Dynamics (with a dash of holon theory), plus God/Spirit and also the LAW in the metaphysical sense rather than, say, traffic regulations. Law is essential to understanding the divine feminine (and vice versa).

Chapter 2:  An Introduction to Dragons — who and what are they, as a species? Why should you care? Dragons of one sort or another are seen in every human culture, and we’ll use that to introduce you to ‘my’ dragons.

Chapter 3:  Who are these Dragons?  Well, that is the question, isn’t it? In this chapter we look at the nature of the extra-terrestrial dragons that are visiting just now in increasing numbers.

Chapter 4:  Five Dragons: this chapter is about the particular team that speaks to me, and through me to the world. They are actual physical beings that fly, that talk, that have ideas and principles and particular points that they wish to make… and that they can only make through people — humans — that have the most influence on this planet.

Chapter 5:  Now, about you humans… or how the dragons see us. It may be that whales and dolphins are also self-aware; however, we humans seem to be the dominant species on this planet at present, and the dragons would like to have a Word with us.

Chapter 6:  The Glory of Dragons speaks to how/why the dragons connect with divine love AND divine intelligence. For those at the turquoise stage, it’s all about intelligence (truth+light) at the level of the unconditioned love that we call ‘glory’.

Chapter 7:  The Crux of the Matter, or what the dragons would especially like us to read, mark, and inwardly digest, so that we can change our ways. Seriously, the human race cannot continue with its beliefs in lack, death, or entitlement: that is, believing that Law (in the greater sense) does not apply to us.

Chapter 8:  Where the Dragons Come In … and what they have to say to us as stewards of this planet. This is where we start to talk about the truly central differences between humans and dragons, especially around the key issues of climate change, death, and Law, both universal and local.

Chapter 9:  It’s Getting Hot in Here!  This chapter is our final warning about global warming or climate change. In case you hadn’t noticed, human activity is creating or allow unprecedented rise in temperatures, and this has impact on more than weather systems and growing seasons.

Chapter 10:  Fight or Flight — are those our only choices? The past 5,200 years of the divine masculine out breath of God — of the universe, or at least this corner of it — have engrained patterns of death and destruction that will not allow us to survive in the long term. Only when we start to respond rather than react will it become possible to rebalance our world.

Chapter 11:  Beyond Fight, Flight, Freeze, Fawn:  how do we get back to balance and harmony? What does the divine feminine inbreath of God mean in terms of the human race and our relationships to each other, to the physiosphere, and to the planet? These are open questions, because even those of us on the frothy edge of development have no idea what divine feminine leadership looks like, because there are no models, only an intuitive sense.

Chapter 12:  A Flight of Dragons.  This entire book was originally called A Flight of Dragons because in order to connect past concepts of dragons with present and future experience, we do require flights of fancy (plus ‘flight’ is the collective noun for dragons, analogous to a flock of sheep or an unkindness of ravens.. Then as I came to write, it became A LIGHT of DRAGONS… because light is what dragons like best. So… consonantal drift strikes again!

To summarize, the dragons are primarily concerned about three thing that relate to humans and this planet:

  •   Death and dying, waste, and the ‘disease of lack’

  •   The disaster in the making that is climate change

  •   The divine feminine, which is Law.

There, now you know the themes and maybe you don’t have to read the rest of the book. But for most of us… here goes!
