True North

by Robert Cinque


Since ancient times, countless brave captains of mighty ships have faced their fears and sailed out, onto the vast oceans, using their compass and astrolabe to navigate. For centuries, they were perplexed and confused by the enormous difference between magnetic north and True North. Their compass pointed to magnetic north so they followed it but ended up hundreds of miles off course.

They read their compass correctly;  the problem was that they did not know there was a big difference between True North and magnetic north.

Magnetic North

Magnetic North changes. True North doesn’t. That’s the difference.

The Analogy is this: True North is the White Hot Core of Radiant Existence, the Passionate Field of Life Energy, the Gloriously Illuminated Sphere of Bright Love, in and as all beings, even poor little ole you and me, the cat, the bugs, everything.

Magnetic north is the TV land of sitcoms, News and Snooze , fake reality, zero love.

True North is the Red- Blooded,  White Hot, Super Sexy, Sweating, Swooning  Passion of Heartfelt Intimacy between Part and Whole, Consciousness and Matter, Self and God.

Magnetic north is a joke, a distraction from This, the Real.

Magnetic north is everything in your life that is not stable. It shifts. It moves, often at the worst moments. Its quicksand, cannot be trusted. It’s fake news and junk science.

Discard it.

True North is Love, your Very Essence.


Trust Life, NOT the counterfeits of It, sold to you by the Pimpocracy.

Trust Life.

Then, Show Up as Love and Energy.

In addition to writing essays like these, Robert Cinque also builds beautiful, affordable and comfortable yurts for homeowners and businesses in the fabulous Skagit County. Throughout the past three decades, his work has included building and installing wood art at local landmarks like the Cascadian Farm Organic Fruitstand in Rockport (WA), the Birdsview Brewery at the foot at “the American Alps” in the Pacific Northwest’s Skagit Valley, and many others. He has worked with visionary architect and organic designer Sunray Kelley for over 20 years on many beautiful projects. Together, they formed Radiant Homes and are actively engaged in the development of the Living Home, the Bioshelter, the no-mortgage, no-permit, food and energy producing home. Their work has been featured on National Geographic, MTV, Better Homes and Gardens, and represents the Greening of Architecture, a movement they consider to be the most important development since the Industrial Revolution. He says: These essays are about “dungeons of mind, the root of suffering, true sanctuary, and the glorious imperative to live intimately with That Which Is Alive As All Things. They are painful, bloody and hard-hitting (the “truth will set you free, but it will piss you off first”). They are designed to destroy what’s false and cultivate what’s real. They are not merely my opinions or philosophy; they are field reports from the underground where the Lie was deconstructed. They are wrecking balls, cosmic insults to vanity and arrogance, bulldozers and firebombs that burn out the tangled underbrush. They are intended to water the Seeds of Life buried under mountains and centuries of false beliefs, inherited “culture” and ego cults, so-called “religions”, including scientism, masquerading as truth. Idols are routinely lampooned and sacred cows are turned into hamburger as quickly as possible. I really don’t mean to offend any one personally. I’m not after them. I’m after the beliefs that are harming them: the Big Lie, the belief in separation from Love and Truth that strangles the heart and creates terrible, unbearable suffering. I love to help create Sanctuary and Shelter. I am a green builder and enjoy showing others how to build a no-mortgage, no-permit bio-shelters that also provide food and energy. shelter@nwlink.com cell 360-393-5663
