Attention… attention… ???

nativeaclogosmIt seems the art of deception and distraction is still at work in our world. I’m curious as to where folks feel we need to focus our attention? As a coach, I often raise questions of opportunity. That does not mean I am those questions or comments. I am free enough to ask and accept whatever flow they generate, even if it puts me in a particular ‘light’ that may be perceived as judgmental.

I had a wonderful mentor many years ago who, after passing, continued his engagement with me. Khigh Dhiegh was an actor who happened to have a doctorate in theology and was a rector for a Taoist sanctuary in Tempe, AZ. In and interview on my television show we discussed the nature of being a world citizen, one of his passions.

Our choices, he stated, are not necessarily about what is ‘right’ or ‘wrong.’ They are more about what is ‘desirable’ or ‘undesirable.’ To determine that, we must experience or explore the plethora of possibilities across a myriad of manifestations. These include taking an objective view of ‘what is’ in the world and the people, places and things that vie for our attention. It includes those considerations for the desire of control in personal, professional, political and religious realms to name a few.

Yes it is our duty, as conscientious beings, to expose that which is congruous in the development of a healthy planetary relationship and world view. It is our response ability to engage truth – that which exposes and enlightens even ourselves as we are reflections of the ONE that IS at the core of ALL. The ‘ego’ is then nurtured into a new relationship of ‘wego’ as the collective ascension is necessary to become the change we wish to see in the world. This change is universal in nature, yet there are obviously some distractions placed before us.

This nature of ours is beyond any label, including ‘spiritual.’ It is just who we ARE. That little part of us that likes the playground drama is trance-ended when we become stewards of the sandbox. The phases of transformation that you mention so eloquently are recognizable as points on the line, often tangential, that draw us to a greater understanding of ourselves and, therefore, others.

We often have to lose ourselves to find ourselves as we experience the mobiability of our transit through and to self-realization… celestial consciousness condensed into form. The Beast… is within us all and recognized as, misinterpreted by many, the number of man… 666… the carbon atom. The intelligence, or knowledge and wisdom, it took to create this atom is far beyond the extrapolated calculations that resulted in a variable of 32 decimal places. Yet math/science (understanding) led us to the recognition.

Indeed there are people who practice protective arts of their own perceived dominions through various organizations, both overt and covert. The journey we are on entails the exposure of obfuscation. The universe within us and around us has no secrets… no demand of our allegiance… yet it demands our allegiance if we intend to be the change and example harmony among people and planet in our lifetimes. This is our edict for now… love your neighbor as yourself. It is a challenge in every moment, every thought and action. We often engage the circuitous defensive nature of the little self in our quest to be bigger. When one shows up as an example of an attempt to epitomize a ‘belief system’ they are often stiff-armed in an attempt to remain comfortable in personal deception or ignorance.

No more important words can be offered: “Let us put our collective house in order before we dream.” It eliminates the nightmares. “That way when we awake in the morning to the new dawn we can start anew, fresh and unencumbered by unfinished chores.” Understanding that the ‘dream’ is of a new world order we engage in our sleep allows us to observe that everything, including the structures created by our predecessors, has purpose toward the natural evolution of a cosmic planetary society readying for the ultimate contact with our creators, or at least representatives closer to the heart.

A Brighter View of the Morning Star?

toilet1-223x300In lieu of the ‘nefarious’ postulations presented all over the Web now… What are we really here to do? Might it be to learn to transcend all the riff raff and learn how to get along as a planetary society? After all, we are technically one planet and one people.. right? Then why do we continue to allow separative practices? A better question might be, “How do we re-direct all this energy toward creating a better world?”

I agree that as long as we continue to focus on that which separates people, we will remain separate. Is that what we truly desire? I find that more than distasteful. I find it [continued focus on separation] appalling and not something I spend time [attention is an investment] on in most of my daily deliberations. However, in order to shift attention away from what comes so easily to many (perceptively negative thoughts and feelings) it is far richer to focus on people, places and things that create a joyful sensation from the relationships, productivity and results of developing harmony among people and planet… one action at a time.

Life can be a series of synchronistic and serendipitous moments when we choose to change [make choices toward unity] at every opportunity. In this, a line from Vanilla Sky comes to mind, “Every moment gives us the opportunity to change the rest of our lives.” A recent zen calendar saying (a gift from my beloved) reminded me of such precious presence/presents…”In the realm of human destiny, the depth of man’s questioning is more important that his answers.” A few days later this one appeared, “If enlightenment is not where you are, where do you look?”

I think it is safe to say that there is an awareness of cosmic consciousness condensed into form.. us. Each one of us has the opportunity to recognize our Origin – and to acknowledge that place of Origin in each other. My signature has reflected this place for several decades. I produced and hosted a television show in the early 90s that reflected this place… How we can share ways to overcome the fears that keep us separate and grow to know the secrets of unity – one plane, one people, one mind. Not that we give up individuality in the process. Quite the opposite – we become who we are as complete individuals, destined to live as contributors to a better world – one that works for everyone.

Some say this kind of thinking is idealist and even unrealistic. Others find the consideration of such a new living awareness to be the crux of the matter as everything that is not in alignment with this consciousness seems to be crumbling in our world as you read these words. Our abstinence in participation and responsible actions that command our leaders and each other to stand up and behave like the adults of spiritual understanding we know we must be continually plague our relationships on the ocean of emotion swirling around us now.

I have no control over what you think and feel. I barely have control over my own swirling emotions, thoughts and actions as I strive for congruence with this new living awareness in my own life. I can only encourage others and help where ever asked. I’ve learned that to attempt to assist when uninvited is like dealing with teenagers who think they know everything. The entanglements exemplify the push/pull of attempts to control others… inappropriately. We need to ask better questions.

Some examples of better questions might be: Why am I here? Who am I really? What am I here to be/do/have? Where do I best belong? How can I best assist and grow? When is the best moment to serve? Will you (Source) show me, with unquestionable impeccability, how to be in the precious present?

Just my two and a half-sense.

Dark Matter… Dark Knight… Shed Light

 Dark Matter… Dark Knight… Shed Light

This video shows scientific proof and logical explanation of how we might ‘see’ our universe from a different perspective, engaging the viagra super active ‘dark side’ of the equation. Einstein predicted such things would occur and now it appears that we have found a new ‘ring’ that isn’t so familiar. Concurrently there are many who seek to balance the world, find a new order that protects and serves humanity. Seems we are caught in duality without a bridge under construction, let alone on the drawing board.

Let’s start off with a premise that we are indeed cosmic consciousness condensed into form. This, of course, is an assumption and only has theoretical, albeit heretical to some, evidence within the exploration of consciousness. So how would we relate to the microcosm within each of us with respect to the macrocosm of Dark Matter and Dark Energy? Is there something somewhere, anywhere, that might give us a clue as to how we can relate and/or live within our own Dark Matter/Energy? It may be simpler than we think.

To understand the paradox of Dark Matter and Dark Energy we can reference the Tao, or even opposing spins of the Swastika in reference to condensing and expanding fields of matter. Dark Matter is inviting structure, creating order from the chaos we experience as gravity or even solar systems, while Dark Energy is inviting expansion, creating chaos we experience as an expanding physical universe. On a more material plane, our planet for instance, we experience a conscious (more often unconscious) ebb and flow of attraction and separation through religion and/or political power structures.

The consideration I’m introducing  is based on John Gardner’s premise in Biocosm, where he posits that the Universe (Creation) likes to replicate itself and is constantly seeking to create little universes. The premise, I find, resembles the notion presented in spiritual texts that we are ‘sons and daughters of God,’ but it is never considered that eventually we do grow up. It is too pompous or preposterous to even conceive that we might be more than we’ve been willing to believe, let alone accept. Yet, it seems that we’ve been informed of our potential from those very ones we hold as sacred teachers. It spans the gamut of religious sects and spiritual paths. For some reason we still create separation and war, though. Rarely do we deal with a discoverable truth.

I realize that the consideration that we are all part of a singular creation made up of the same particles of matter pushes the boundaries of consideration for a spiritual/material connection we may experience as we ‘live’ in some kind of conscious expression. Whether that expression seeks harmony or dissonance is the critical question now, isn’t it? The paradox of questioning the truth is that it is offensive to those who think they now the truth or have the market on it through effective advertising and sales, like what BP and the US Government is doing in the Gulf right now.

This conscious expression can be felt at a distance by some and even demonstrated by an experiment with dowsing rods I’ve witnessed up close.  Some call this an ‘aura.’  It can be measured with distinct differences between past, present and future thoughts and feelings. As you might imagine, past and future are diminished considerably when compared to the measurement of present time. What is really being ‘measured’ by the dowsing rods? Is this ‘dark’ energy? It only means it is invisible to the naked eye, just as the clouds with embedded universes mentioned in the video.

The same ‘energy’ can be felt around those who have personal agendas or professional agendas, either serving themselves, the greater good or both. A ‘presence’ is noted around those who serve beyond personal or professional agendas whereas those who serve with less intentional good often make it up with a louder song and dance routine. How does this apply to Dark Matter or Dark Energy? Without prejudice, the sense of achieving clarity in truth of any situation offers a pronounced sense of order, whether it has been established yet or not. Whereas, blatant denial of facts in an attempt to dissuade chaos or fear-based reactions of the public only serves to create chaos.

In the case of the measurement of ‘auras’ the humans are the embedded features in the dark cloud. We constantly move in these fields of energy and occasionally become aware of them through ‘sensations’ we may or may not understand yet cannot deny that we ‘feel’ them distinctly. Just like the ‘ring’ affect mentioned in the video, we see reflections of refracted light around the dark cloud, a circle of trust if you will. I know this is a stretch, but if we had a mechanism within us to distinguish and then act upon a clearer picture, what change might we affect in the world?

Concurrently in the search for Gamma Rays mentioned in the video to garner better understanding of the ‘darkness’ of space, we also have recent discoveries of Gamma brain waves that are noticeably increased when one is at peak performance or ‘in the zone’ of their activity. As we seek to understand the mysteries of our consciousness and creation, are we not seeking understanding of the mysteries of God? Using ‘God’ as a generic term, I think I recall the invitation across many, if not all, the world’s religious texts, ancient and current. So that we may what? What might we possibly learn?
