I wrote the initial draft of this back in early 2012, and have revised it a few times as I’ve grown in understanding. This kind of community is only possible to achieve when all parties are 100% committed to taking radical self-responsibility for their thoughts, feelings, actions, and outcomes, aka governing themselves, and when they know how to work in the causal realms of existence by setting energetic boundaries and consciously creating their individual experiences in a meaningful and purposeful manner. Otherwise communities will follow a predictable course where they ultimately succumb to dark triad (narcissistic, psychopathic, and Machiavellian) personalities bent on control in the “power over others” game.
The Divine Pollination Hive is a worldwide Voluntary community currently based online, where we participate in conscious relationships through developing our Self with critical thinking, emotional awareness, spontaneity, and compassion. Cultivate your uniqueness and creativity as an individual in a safe and loving environment with a family you can trust. We are Hermeticists, which is the foundation of alchemy. It closely relates to all of the mystical paths, and is Logocentric in nature. We integrate Jungian shadow work, the Trivium, critical thinking, and the Hermetic Principles into our personal and professional lives.

The Divine Pollination Hive is a voluntary community of interconnected individuals and families who are taking responsibility over their lives by learning how to process their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and outcomes to lead drama free and sovereign lives; the individual does not serve the community, but rather the community supports the individual’s growth and creativity. It is a place where members can safely practice making mistakes, digging deep into their shadow sides, and unraveling their childhood patterns and traumas; a place where they can learn healthy ways to experience and express their sexuality, practice mature monogamy, conscious non-monogamy, empowered parenting, and learn how to communicate with one another from a space of authenticity from our heart rather than from their fears. It is a community purposefully works synergistically together in an intimate manner, while each individual’s uniqueness and diversity of ideas are celebrated; rather than fighting to survive, it is a place to connect and thrive.
A group and community is meant to be an effect and reflection of the individual’s development as a unique and whole being, and not a cause over them. Herd morality and mentality views the group as a cause, and not an effect, and typically seeks to impose their group’s morals upon other groups and individuals. Voluntarism is a collection of individuals who voluntarily work together, naturally attracting those with similar intellectual and moral values. However, most of the other “isms”, especially those that believe in the moral powers of the State, uses the group to pressure individual compliance through some form of external force, whether through conditioning, propaganda, peer pressure and mandates, or through the threat of violence. In most communities and cultures the so-called “greater good” is valued above all else, but the “greater good” is a moving target controlled by oligarchs and technocrats who wish to consolidate power for themselves. However in individualist communities and cultures, the individual’s good is most valued—we fall into the category of the individual’s good, but with the caveat that each individual has minimum standards of relating that must be met in order to participate in our community, the foundational principle being the individual’s commitment to taking radical responsibility over their own thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and outcomes, and not placing such responsibilities on others.
The Divine Pollination Hive, where the One supports the One.
The “Law of Attraction” is not a New Age concept, although it is talked about predominantly by New Age gurus, but it actually stems from the fabled teacher Hermes Trismegistus, or the “Thrice Great Hermes”, who first observed the “Seven Hermetic Principles”. These principles are self-evident observations about the nature of the Universe, and the aspects that the All has made manifest to us about itself, also known as “Natural Law”. According to the Kybalion, these seven principles are:
Mentalism – The All is mind; the Universe is mental.
Correspondence – As above, so below, as below, so above.
Vibration – Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates.
Polarity – Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.
Rhythm – The pendulum-swing manifests in everything; the measure of the swing to the right is the measure of the swing to the left; rhythm compensates.
Cause & Effect – Every Cause has its Effect; every Effect has its Cause.
Gender – Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on all planes.
These seven principles can be found secretly encoded into most religious texts, but are discussed more openly within each religion’s corresponding mystical sects, such as Gnosticism, Kabbalah, Sufism, Tantra, and Taoism. Additionally, most of the mystery schools, secret societies, Alchemists, and pagan branches also have these seven principles encoded within them, although their interpretations and understandings will vary drastically based on the goals of each movement.
The mastery of the seven principles is what allows one to master the “Law of Attraction”, but unfortunately, “positive thinking” is a drastic oversimplification of applying these observations of nature. Hermeticists seek to apply these principles from the inside-out, through transmuting their baser instincts of lead into the higher intellect of gold, in order to live in harmony and balance with nature, and with all who inhabit our wonderful world. However, dark occultists, those who play the power over others game, use these principles outside-in as a means t control and feed upon others, and to use less aware beings as pawns for their own selfish purposes.
The consciousness of the individual soul is what determines how they will interpret these seven natural principles, either as a way to experience personal sovereignty from the inside-out, or as a way to infect others with their own disempowered worldviews. In the path of neutrality there is a deepening of understanding that expands as the adherent grows into self-knowledge and awareness, but along the dark path there is a contraction of self-knowledge and awareness, as it is fueled by a distorted view of universal laws that that they only use to fuel their insatiable lusts and greed.
Mastering of the Seven Hermetic Principles does indeed allow for a miraculous life, as miracles do not defy the laws of nature, nor is their source from beyond nature, for they are the effects of having perfectly aligned with nature’s processes. Therefore, if you wish to live a miraculous life — align yourself with nature and its self-evident principles. ~Nathan Martin
In the beginning was the Word [Logos], and the Word [Logos] was with God, and the Word [Logos] was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. ~John 1:1-3 NKJV
One cannot understand what the Gospel of John was saying without having a grounded understanding (reason/purpose) of what the “Logos” means. The Logos is an ancient concept, one that the Gospel of John intimately understood and used to speak to its readers. Logocentrism is the meaning (purpose, understanding) found within our words. The Enlightenment period was mostly concerned with Logocentrism, which focused on the value of reason, using it to give meaning to our lives, and conveying that meaning through words. It combines both the concept of sovereignty and magic within it, thus fulfilling the archetypes of the “King” and the “Priest” that Jesus was said to have represented. The law of reason makes one sovereign, while being able to articulate the depth of meaning with words makes one a priest/magician. Logocentrism greatly impacted western society, which is what Marxism, deconstructionism, postmodernism, etc., have attempted to subvert with their nihilistic and envious mental virus. Logocentrism, aka Christ, is their enemy, and they will stop at nothing to undo the liberty that individuals have achieved as a result of it.
Looking back at what I what I ultimately learned as a result of growing up a Christian, and from my time now as a Logocentric philosopher, it’s that the underlying message of Christianity is focused on the development of the individual, and their ability to stand in alignment with The ALL—not as a collective group.
“All rational action is in the first place individual action. Only the individual thinks. Only the individual reasons. Only the individual acts.” ~Ludwig von Mises, Socialism: An Economic and Sociological Analysis
It is the idea that Jesus is the personification of the Logos, aka, the archetype of Divine logic / reason / empathy, as it is reason that makes a person an individual through creating clarity of thought, therefore separating them from and making them above the animals. Mastering reason grants them individual autonomy, and is the “law written on the heart” that allows a person to submit to universal moral principles (see Ayn Rand’s ”Objectivism” for how morality is an objectively moral code produced by reason/Logos) that transcends their ego-personality.
On one level, the “message of the cross” is the metaphor of “crucifying reason/individuality” by the “mob mentality”. The collective group has always hated the individual due to its member’s own feelings of inferiority, insecurity, low self-worth, and lack of wholeness; all of which are solved through the integration of Logocentric aspects of reason “into the hearts and minds” of individuals. This is why Logocentric thought produced by pre-Talmudic Judaism, Stoicism, the Socratics, Christianity, and other great schools of ancient Greek philosophy, put their focus on the conscious development and volition of the individual, and not on the group.
“She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus,because he will save his people from their sins.” ~Matthew 1:21
Do you want to go to heaven, which is an earthly metaphor for wisdom? You’ll need Jesus, aka reason, integrated into your heart to get there, because it is reason that forgives our sins through granting us understanding of why our thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and outcomes are not aligned with the archetypal blueprint and objective standard of the Divine Logos (natural law / law of reason).
“Come now, and let us reason together,” says the Lord, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. ~Isaiah 1:18
Reason allows us to “process together” in a multilogical manner, so that we can work through the various dialectics we experience daily, in order to produce inner change. This inner change focuses our will and makes us sovereign individuals distinct from the various collective herds and their subjective moralities; in short, it grants us autonomy through purifying our thoughts, our thoughts then purifies our emotions, our purified thoughts and emotions purifies our behaviors, and finally our purified thoughts, emotions, and behaviors produces outcomes that are aligned with universal law and the Divine Will. Multilogical dialogue is the process of reasoning together, while using the Divine Logos as our objective standard, which makes our sins “white as snow”.
Lastly, dying to our fears and being “born again” to life beyond fear is another key component to the message of the death and resurrection of Jesus. Without working through and processing each small and major fear of death that we encounter in daily life, which requires us to point our intellect inwards in self reflection, we cannot truly live a life filled with deeper meaning and purpose. It is the act of taking manageable risks and going through the death and resurrection process in every facet of our lives that allows us to move beyond the mundane confines of what is considered a normal life, and into a life filled with deeper meaning and higher purpose. This makes life worth truly living.
The Mass is an extramundane and extratemporal act in which Christ is sacrificed and then resurrected in the transformed substances; and this rite of his sacrificial death is not a repetition of the historical event but the original, unique, and eternal act. The experience of the Mass is therefore a participation in the transcendence of life, which overcomes all bounds of space and time. It is a moment of eternity in time. ~Collected Works of C.G. Jung, Volume 9 (Part 1): Archetypes and the Collective Unconscious
The belief that “one has no options” is the chief cornerstone of a victim mindset, so when an evil force attempts to remove all of our options and paints us into the corner to the point that we believe that we are their victims, the belief becomes our consent to the drama triangle of victim, villain, and hero, which therefore grants such evil doers power over us. The good news is that every time we are confronted with these dilemmas, we are placed in a position where we are able to die and resurrect to our greatest fear, and resurrection causes us to transcend that fear, along with the victim mentality that goes along with it, therefore causing us to alchemically transcend the situation itself. Many succumb to being painted into the corner and therefore consent to being victims, while a minority are stretched by their lack of options to such an extent that they go through the death and rebirth process, and break completely free from any and all systems of external control. This transcendent minority are like gods among mortals living sovereign lives without external governance, controls, or coercion; they’re essentially able to walk on water in the midst of any storm. ~Nathan Martin
MULTILOGICAL DIALOGUE & CONFLICT RESOLUTION
Truth and understanding is built through a dialogue of diverse viewpoints and ideas, whether it’s emotionally charged or not, in order to weigh the strengths and weakness of a viewpoint, using objective logical principles as the arbiter of what is the most reasonable and true. Conversely, limiting the range of permissible dialogue because we’re offended, hurt, ascended, transcended, enlightened, right, or any other means of bypassing around the discussion is the path of lies and self-deception. If what is being communicated is sound and reasonable, it can stand to be challenged; and what will be discovered is that our perception of the truth grows as our understanding grows. Our growth may not come from agreeing with lesser viewpoints, but rather from learning how to defend and communicate our views clearly and intelligibly to others, where we gain better understanding of how to communicate through the often contentious dialogue itself.
The challenge of defending and communicating our viewpoints also gives us a better understanding of our perspectives, as we must dig deeper into ourselves to better articulate the reasons for what we believe, and we will often run into viewpoints and reasoning that will add to, or slightly shift our viewpoints. Dialogue can also provide us with situations that challenges, pokes, and prods our emotional state of being, where we can use the possible friction to highlight our emotional upsets, and to discover and neutralize the core reasons why we are upset. In these ways, each dialogue builds our understanding of ourselves and what we believe, whether it is through the friction from the dialogue itself, the logical defense of our perspective, or from sympathetically entering into other perspectives in ways that refines, adds to, and modifies our own. Again, in one way or another, truth is built through a dialogue between diverse viewpoints and ideas.
THE EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUES
The Emotional Freedom Techniques, also known as EFT or Meridian Tapping, is a combination of Chinese acupressure/acupuncture points bundled with modern psychology. It is a powerful means of letting go of childhood and adult trauma, and there are many studies being conducted that back up this assertion (please click here for more on the science of EFT). It is also effective for letting go of beliefs and patterns that no longer provide for a happy and healthy life. Learn how to use EFT to let go of trauma, shame, guilt, jealousy, sadness, fear, and anger, as well as to address any addictive patterns that you might have.
There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the dark conscious. ~Carl Jung
Shadow work is Carl Jung’s third of five steps on the path to an emotionally enlightened life; it is the practice of digging in the dark closets of the self to unearth the patterns that suffocate truth based love. In the Hive, we use the “Relationships as a Mirror”, the Unity Process, and critical thinking to see how each person we interact with is actually reflecting to us our own limiting beliefs and suppressed childhood memories, it is a process of rewriting the core belief that we are separate from each other and the world we live in, and instead connected and one with all of creation. Combined with EFT, working the mirrors is an effective means of unraveling your childhood beliefs and letting them go, sometimes many at a time. It is the path of wisdom, as Lao Tzu said, “To attain knowledge, add things every day. To attain wisdom, remove things every day,” and as Osho stated, “It’s not a question of learning much. On the contrary. It’s a question of unlearning much.”
THE UNITY PROCESS is an integral component of our flavor of shadow work, as it is an integrative methodology which combines the philosophy of Natural Law, the Trivium Method, Socratic Questioning, Jungian shadow work, and Meridian Tapping—into an easy to use system that allows people to process their emotional upsets, work through trauma, correct poor thinking, discover meaning, set healthy boundaries, refine their viewpoints, and to achieve a positive focus.
The Unity Process, where the Two become the One.
Learn how to be an empowered parent using a combination of “Parenting with Love and Logic”, Socratic dialogue, and EFT. Most traditional parenting methods work on modifying children’s behavior and enforcing their compliance using manipulative techniques, however in our conscious community, we use EFT to reverse engineer our parenting and relating patterns from our childhood, so that we can experience empowerment as adults—and if we experience empowerment, our children will be raised in an empowering manner through our example and how we relate to them! The “Parenting with Love and Logic” system of books, videos, and audios provides the perfect ruler in which to start our empowered parenting journey, and coupled with the powerful tool of Socratic dialogue and EFT, the harmony within our families are bound to improve.
MATURE MONOGAMY & MONOGOMISH
Beyond the tension of the two extremes of immature monogamy and communistic ways of multi-partnering is a form of romantic relating known as Mature Monogamy, a powerful tool on the path of awakening into the truth of who you really are. In this form of relationship, both partners are radically dedicated to assisting each other in further psychologically individuating into a unique individual, while mastering the ability to co-create together. In order to find each other, both partners must be somewhat whole and complete within their aloneness—and emotionally, spiritually, and sexually conscious as well. This relationship type aims to dig deeper into each party’s psychological fragmentation, and to assist them in uprooting any of the remaining impurities that may still be present.
This form of relating is not for the feint of heart, as it requires a deep self knowledge and commitment to the truth, including being authentic about feeling attraction to another person and working through the myriad reasons as to why that attraction is there in the first place (hence why this is form of relationship is sometimes called “monogomish”, as it gives people the freedom to play the “What If game” to perform shadow work and to better connect with one’s inner child by exploring other relationships without actually acting out and engaging in them). I feel that this is a relationship type that is well suited to prepare some individuals for the Alchemical Marriage (aka, divine marriage and the divine union with one’s Higher Self). By eliminating all escape routes, you get to see and understand yourself in even deeper ways than you could have experienced prior. This is not for the faint of heart, but a focused way to deepen with your relationship with your true Self.
This form of relationship CANNOT be done with just any partner, it is only possible with someone who is fully committed to the process of self-ownership and taking radical responsibility, and is just as committed to self-realization, deeper intimacy with Self and with their mirror in a romantic relationship, and to stripping the ego-personality of all remaining impurities. While love may be infinite, equally loving all within the framework of “time” can be quite difficult for the fragmented and fearful ego-personality to handle; intimacy/connection is the limiting factor in love, for intimacy is the pipeline that carries love within a relationship—Mature Monogamy is a great means to upgrade your intimacy infrastructure in order to fully own your Self through merging with your Inner Child, which brings one closer to union with their Higher Self and the Divine.
For more on Mature Monogamy, please see Robert A. Masters’ articles on the subject.
Polyamory is a non-monogamous form of relating in which a person will have more than one lover, and polyamorous couples are said to be in an “open relationship”. Many couples are in an open relationship as a means of dealing with a deep fear of intimacy or hyper need for freedom and independence, and although this may relieve some of the tension that the fear creates, it does not eradicate the fear. Most people approach polyamory from a communistic perspective, where each interaction is equitable and “fair”, however, this lowers our relationship standards, and is not how we approach it. We approach polyamory from a space of adding value and raising awareness/consciousness, and those who have worked on themselves the most will undoubtedly provide the most value to partners in a relationship, and will probably be the ones who enjoy multi-partnering the most. While those who don’t bring as much value to the table, and in fact may even struggle with one partner, may need to continue working on themselves in order to upgrade their being and relationship skills before attempting multi-partnering.
For those who are able to navigate monogamy well enough, and have a semblance of self-knowledge and are willing and able to take responsibility for their own feelings, conscious polyamory is a way of bringing self-awareness through relationships in order to release the traumas, fear, possessiveness, jealousy, etc., that may be hiding within the one’s childhood. It is an excellent vehicle for creating situations in which partners are challenged with control dramas that bring painful patterns to the surface so that they can be processed and released, never to be repeated again—it can be an excellent path to spiritual renewal and awakening.
Although we teach conscious polyamory as a means of bringing up our shadow side, we do not advocate any one way of relating romantically, as each person has a unique purpose and path. In unity, relationships are not a quantity, but rather a quality; to be one with another, or multiple others, unity within the Self is first required. Conscious non-monogamy allows the individual the space, freedom, and safety to come into such an alignment.
PERMACULTURE & NATURAL SYSTEMS
Permaculture is gardening by utilizing the natural systems and cycles within nature, which allows for self-sustaining lifestyle, and more importantly, a connection to nature. By connecting to nature, we are able to observe how it perpetuates itself without human intervention, and by extension, we can see how a life connected to these natural systems, from our water usage, energy production and consumption, and even romantic and communal relationships can operate in a natural way.
For example, our soil is meant to have boundaries that protect it from the elements, and that allow it to thrive as a living organism, however, traditional monoculture and organic farming have removed the earth’s skin and natural protection, which causes the crops to grow off of the deceased organisms in the soil rather than the living organisms in the soil. Growing food from death is entropic, while growing food from life is expansive; the same is true within our relationships. Many of our human relationships currently thrive upon death and feeding upon others, rather than upon having clear and protective boundaries that define ourselves, each other, and our relationships. These boundaries promote life and expansive relationships, whereas removal of our protective boundaries, much like removal of our skin from protecting our muscles, causes disease, famine, and decay.
There are three different types of farming, three different types of electricity generation, and three different types of relationships. Whereas type one is further from nature, type three is closer and aligned with nature; it is a spectrum of unnatural to natural.
Unnatural = Monoculture farming = resource dependent energy generation = codependent/vampiric relationships.
Less unnatural and more natural = Organic farming = renewable sources of energy such as wind/solar/hydro = spiritually centered relationships with a small energetic footprint on others.
Aligned with nature = Permaculture = free energy, also known as over-unity or lossless energy, where the amount of energy required to generate more energy is less than what it costs in resources to create it in the first place = the Divine Marriage of Unity Consciousness and the ability to create and co-create as gods (not God).
The Divine Pollination Hive seeks to allow each individual the safe space needed to develop into a nature aligned being, and nothing is better at this than allowing for people to learn from nature first hand by permaculture gardening.
