Pardon the Self-Promotion… Faith, Love and Trust

attitude-lifeDoesn’t that just set things up? I’m going to twist the reference into something you probably didn’t expect. I’ve been researching the nature of self-development for many decades, applying the research to changing my own life as well as the many clients and organizations I’ve had relationships with over the years.

There has been an overwhelming notion that the core competencies in any successful individual and/or organization are simple: faith, love and trust. I’ll explain what I mean by that further. We’ll look at common definitions and and extended understand extrapolated from the common understanding in hopes of making sense common. The latter brings with it a more well-adjusted and available experience in personal and professional arenas.

Faith

From Wikipedia:” Faith is confidence or trust in a person, thing, deity, or in the doctrines or teachings of a religion. It may also be belief that is not based on proof.

In religion, faith often involves accepting claims about the character of a deity, nature, or the universe. While some have argued that faith is opposed to reason, proponents of faith argue that the proper domain of faith concerns questions which cannot be settled by evidence. For example, faith can be applied to predictions of the future, which (by definition) has not yet occurred.

The word faith is often used as a substitute for hope, trust or belief.”

So this would indicate that ‘faith’ is primarily something associated with religious or spiritual belief systems. What if it were also associated with ‘experience’ systems, those things we grow to know through our experience and understanding?

I would offer that it goes much further in practical application for everyday living. We have faith in many things that guide and nurture our lives. Most of the time that faith is built on experience with people, places and things. In some cases we might say it is more of a ‘knowing’ that develops over time, but with each new situation that ‘faith’ of certain things being present is undeniable. It is a core competency of our efforts to achieve anything worthwhile.

What about the people, places and things in our lives? Can we have faith in them? Of course. Our faith my be tempered by experience. We have faith that certain actions or words will cause a domino effect, cascading into the natural outcome if unaltered or unchecked. Faith also allows us to put people, places and things together on the fly when required to address action plans or emergencies. The former can be just as stressful as the latter, yet with the faith one has in their ability to perform the results are only a matter of time.

There is also a certain faith folks carry who feel they are part of something greater. In our current planetary position, there are a rising number of what were once called Cultural Creatives™ who sense an imperative need to change our attitudes toward fear-based belief systems. Instead of focusing on what is ‘wrong’ they are turning toward developing solutions for the challenges we face as a planetary civilization. The operation of such a movement begins in local communities with leaders who serve through challenging legislators to do what is beneficial for the health of the community and its residents. There is a certain ‘faith’ that drives these folks in doing what needs to be done.

Love

From Wikipedia: “The English word love can refer to a variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes, ranging from pleasure (“I loved that meal”) to interpersonal attraction (“I love my partner”). It can refer to an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment. It can also be a virtue representing human kindness, compassion, and affection—”the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another”.And it may describe compassionate and affectionate actions towards other humans, one’s self or animals.

In terms of interpersonal attraction, four forms of love have traditionally been distinguished, based on ancient Greek precedent: the love of kinship or familiarity (in Greek, storge), the love of friendship (philia), the love of sexual and/or romantic desire (eros), and self-emptying or divine love (agape). Modern authors have distinguished further varieties of romantic love. Non-Western traditions have also distinguished variants or symbioses of these states. This diversity of uses and meanings, combined with the complexity of the feelings involved, makes love unusually difficult to consistently define, compared to other emotional states.

Love in its various forms acts as a major facilitator of interpersonal relationships and, owing to its central psychological importance, is one of the most common themes in the creative arts. Love may be understood as part of the survival instinct, a function to keep human beings together against menaces and to facilitate the continuation of the species.”

I want to offer a little twist the concept of LOVE. Let’s expand it to Limitless Oscillating Vibrational Energy – it just IS. I trust that paints an appropriate picture. LOVE is in action, it is alive in and around us always, coursing through every person and situation we encounter. We can feel it in our humble and quiet moments. We share the sensation we do the things that bring us happiness and joy. We don’t talk about it much, though. We talk about everything else, but what really matters; to love and be loved. At our core, we all desire the same thing, yet we act out in some amazing ways to produce just the opposite; isolation and separation when we put conditions on people, places and things.

Conversely when the little ego rises to the big Ego, the inspired self, it changes the game entirely. The sensation is sought after and recognized as a resonance that is undeniable. The Limitless Oscillating Vibrational Energy becomes a guiding beacon rather than a subtle distraction. To think it just magically appears is probably not far off the mark, when one releases their fear of … then a new freedom appears and the sensation of LOVE along with it. Sure, it is a challenge to engage this kind of activity or discussion in most public gatherings or workplaces. Still, if you don’t, who will?

LOVE, in this sense, is absent of emotion yet full of feeling. The reality is a paradox in play with the mind as it grabs for meaning and practicality. I would go so far as to say it is a natural state of the universe, a sensation that is felt in every living creature in some form or another. It sounds really simplistic, but then so does quantum physics view of the appearance of the particle or wave depending on the observer. So, LOVE is difficult to consistently define, beyond the emotional states. It is easy to sense, though, permeating our being and our lives.

The little ego begins to understand the Supra Ego, the Inspired ONE, engaged and enveloped by LOVE. How does this change our behavior? When we aspire to engage the sensation in all we do, everything changes and what once seemed insurmountable might seem as just a bump in the road on our journey. In our current state of affairs and social challenges it is even more imperative that this consciousness, this understanding and wisdom, prevails in our every deed and thought. We can demonstrate, but not dominate the conversation.

Trust

From Wikipedia: “In a social context, trust has several connotations. Definitions of trust typically refer to a situation characterized by the following aspects: One party (trustor) is willing to rely on the actions of another party (trustee); the situation is directed to the future. In addition, the trustor (voluntarily or forcedly) abandons control over the actions performed by the trustee. As a consequence, the trustor is uncertain about the outcome of the other’s actions; he can only develop and evaluate expectations. The uncertainty involves the risk of failure or harm to the trustor if the trustee will not behave as desired.

Trust can be attributed to relationships between people. It can be demonstrated that humans have a natural disposition to trust and to judge trustworthiness that can be traced to the neurobiological structure and activity of a human brain, and can be altered e.g. by the application of oxytocin.

Conceptually, trust is also attributable to relationships within and between social groups (families, friends, communities, organizations, companies, nations etc.). It is a popular approach to frame the dynamics of inter-group and intra-group interactions in terms of trust.

When it comes to the relationship between people and technology, the attribution of trust is a matter of dispute. The intentional stance demonstrates that trust can be validly attributed to human relationships with complex technologies. However, rational reflection leads to the rejection of an ability to trust technological artifacts.

One of the key current challenges in the social sciences is to re-think how the rapid progress of technology has impacted constructs such as trust. This is specifically true for information technology that dramatically alters causation in social systems.

In the social sciences, the subtleties of trust are a subject of ongoing research. In sociology and psychology the degree to which one party trusts another is a measure of belief in the honesty, fairness, or benevolence of another party. The term “confidence” is more appropriate for a belief in the competence of the other party. Based on the most recent research, a failure in trust may be forgiven more easily if it is interpreted as a failure of competence rather than a lack of benevolence or honesty. In economics trust is often conceptualized as reliability in transactions. In all cases trust is a heuristic decision rule, allowing the human to deal with complexities that would require unrealistic effort in rational reasoning.”

Now let’s take a twisted view of trust. What circuitous journey am I going to take you on now? Trust is a natural foundation of living, but we have to let go of our vice-grip on reality to truly TRUST. This is probably the ultimate challenge for the change agent, you. It is self-initiating and ultimately self-fulfilling when the vision, mission, plan, practice and performance manifest as a successful endeavor.

In this kind of scenario and in order for us to serve a mission or purpose, the ‘me’ or ‘I’ has to take a break and sit out for a moment. The question arises, “How can I help with the best use of my ability, skills set and understanding for….?” With such a question and from a place of quiet observation one can allow a natural flow of appropriate contemplations or thoughts to emerge. Answers flow and quite often one simply ‘sees’ what needs to be done.

When one is able to step back and observe a situation BEFORE being engaged by it, there is the capacity for shaping the results in a positive way by simple non-attached observation coupled with that sensation of trust. Yes, it is another sensation. It has subtle differences from faith and love. Each has a frequency or resonance that is perceivable or perceptible by the body-mind sensory array. We just haven’t tuned ourselves in properly.

It applies to social architecture of the future as well. Faith, love and trust are intrinsic in developing personal and professional relationships, yet far too often we treat each other as potential enemies vying for attention, time and market share. People don’t change, a person does. If one finds people, places and things that promote happiness and harmony, how difficult is it to share those with their cohorts, peers or staff? If we are going to find sustainable processes that create a better world, what might we search for in the smorgasbord of solutions?

So what does this all mean, the twisted views? I have a feeling that these are operational foundations of our natural being. Our choice is whether we learn how to operate with them or continue to ignore them and flounder down the path to perdition we’re on as a planetary population. The practical side is the application of the new living awareness in everything we are, do and hope for in this life. It applies to how we treat ourselves, each other and our planet.

Some deeper part of me knows this is natural – BEing in faith, love and trust. The rest are distractions to the truth.

Some Time Ago…

Here we are, 36 years later, with much proof of attempted contact. “Beware of the bearers of gifts and the broken promises.

(signed treaty violated by Earth’s elite) “Much pain but still time.” Disregard for life in all its forms, yet there is time to facilitate harmony among people and planet. “Believe there is good out there.” NO THREAT from off planet civilizations. Paul Hellyer (retired Canadian Defense Minister) revealed this is well known in the Military Industrial Complex. “We oppose the deceivers.” Opposition for those who continue to control and manipulate through fear-based systems. Opposition does not mean aggression, either. Beyond the mirroring of behavior, authenticity and openness flow more than fear. “Conduit is closing.” No longer will deceptive practices be hidden – what is done in the shadows will come to light naturally. Human-centric notions will end. The Galactic Year is ending, cosmologically affecting our solar system, right down to the cellular brain of our DNA.

There has been a growing trend, an increase in consciousness, that assuages the old belief systems and offers a new living awareness. It is evident across the world and throughout existing belief systems that have fallen short of their intended purpose – to unite humanity as one. There is a New Time and a New Way; understanding that humans are related to each other and to ‘extraterrestrial’ races as a galactic family, a galactic federation of light. The so-called ‘dark intentions’ were merely the process of an evolving civilization separated from the true knowledge of their origins, learning how to manage or mis-manage resources – people, places and things. It is a challenge for humans to see this based on their (to date) short life spans.

Here we are now in the New Time, with renewed passion for reordering our world in harmony with natural law and order. We’ve learned, at an accelerated rate since the Harmonic Convergence, that when the doorway opened and the exponential shifts in consciousness began to occur aligned with the opening created by celestial alignments, the subtle energy dance with a different beat – that of the heart.

In this New Time, truth emerges as continuous discoveries are made in science, spirituality and technology. We know there are many dimensions, demonstrated by modern mathematicians and experienced by those who, for some reason, enter into realms of consciousness heretofore only hinted at in ancient texts. Humanity is indeed awakening. However, many still seek proof in some way. Consciousness is inherently intangible yet direct experience is available. We’ve kept our inner life at a distance, rarely visiting let alone actualizing outwardly in passionate deliberate creations. Many have risen to the tasks and are experiencing breakthroughs (which are sometimes a series of break-downs) in their personal and professional worlds aligning more.

On a different plane, the bodies of that vibratory rate (similar to the physical and visual experience of Earth, not limited to 3-D physics), haven’t even begun to be explored fully. We talk about multidimensionality, with limited if not rare experiences of it, yet even with all the talking heads, there is little provided that offers a direct experience of it on demand. This is where the scientific method comes into play and with repeatability, there is capacity for expanded knowledge and wisdom, the ‘right use’ which inherently resides in the higher vibratory experience. Now that we’re in the New Time, and the remainder of the 50-year cycle surrounding the 2012 Winter Solstice, the thoughtmosphere is ripe for harvest. Implementing the awareness garnered over the last 25 years, putting it in time frame orientation, we craft and execute a new living awareness and behavior in the world.

That behavior is a demonstration of how well you are aligned with this new living model that self-corrects as awareness continues to grow. The stories are being told, those who’ve incarnated are becoming aware of their connectedness to something bigger. It’s been illusive, this path of perfection embedded in our genes and soul, the consciousness brought on by discovery and sharing of psycho-spiritual as well as scientific technologies. For the time being, though, existing systems are still in play and many still have to pay bills. That is the dilemma that has faced three generations, starting with the Peace, Love and Harmony generation of the 60s.

The Occupy Movement was the collective conscience acting out with the first stage of ‘something is amiss’ and demonstrating for addressing the obvious problems caused by poor fiscal and physical management. The wave swept the planet in a few weeks, but it was not destined for achieving results, only awareness that a seemingly huge number of people around the world agree we have a common stake in the development of our future society. Oddly enough, Crop Circles appear that seem serendipitous to events around the world and continue to offer communication to us through the bio-circuitry of the bent plants that then transfers through the thoughtmosphere of the planet and people. It supports the subtle shifts of the cosmological events as our Mother, a daughter also, begins another cycle.

There undoubtedly many methods to achieve direct experience. One such form of experience available today comes from a technique developed in the 1950s by William Swygard, called Multi-Plane Awareness. It has only been performed as an individual experience through a ‘qualified’ facilitator for decades, yet no one has taken it to the next level – for distribution – now available as an MP3 download. Only your direct experience will prove its reality… or not. Responses from those who’ve tried it have been quite phenomenal…. the bridging of worlds beyond their imagination… http://ow.ly/jzAcb

Enjoy your journey and lead with vision.

Biology of Change

Biology of Change

Who are we? What are we? Bruce offers an explanation of how we can change our biology, how we can ascend from our current self-sabotaging world at-large. Too often we ignore the fact that the most life-affirming thing we can do is to know ourselves.

We espouse this notion as a result of wisdom shed thousands of years ago, yet we have numerous scientific examples of how our feelings and thoughts affect our reality.

Bruce and an old friend, Steve Bhaerman (aka Swami Beyondananda) teamed up to put these discoveries into a great book, Spontaneous Evolution, that shares even more details and great anecdotal side notes and heart warming rants from the Swami. I highly recommend it. What’s in your bottle?

In addition to Lipton’s model of the biological upwising, I would take the delivery system to deeper level, based on the discoveries in quantum mechanics and the growing consideration for quantum entanglement to be yet another name for a very old path. First of all, we know that thought is invisible, has no physical characteristics or density and can move matter when properly directed.

Granted there are few and maybe even questionable scientific studies to some, but the scientists at Los Alamos long ago realized that their thoughts had an effect on the results of their experiments, even the physical manifestations. So if this is a hidden effect that these folks have brought to light, why are we still giving it lip service and ignoring the obvious – we can train our minds to make a better life and world. I know, it is far easier said that done, but the fact that the logic path seems like so much sense being made common is undeniable. Or is it?

Alright, let’s look around a bit to see if there are any other bits and pieces of information that might lead to this potentially magnificent transcendence of human experience. Indeed we’ve been waiting on science to make sense of all the religious superstitions and spiritual understanding so that we could transcend the old ways while acknowledging the leadership and wisdom that got us here now. I’m not a half-full or half-empty guy. I have the carafe and a warehouse full of wine, or whatever your favorite liquid.

I look at things from a fool’s view, upside down. Why? Because when you peer at chaos knowing there is order within, it is far easier to find it and share. Viewing our reality from the perspective of how it appears to be connected in whatever awareness you may have of this notion totally flips the view, from separative to unified. We don’t see what makes us different. We see what makes us the same.

Where can we find that presented at a purely scientific level, yet find some reflection in the old ways or ancient texts that can at least be deemed, ‘possible?’

I’m going to turn around again and take that question in reverse. What is the worst thing we could possibly encounter according to one of the main religions on Earth? The Anti-Christ? Okay. We often find freedom in overcoming what we fear, right? Just follow me for a moment. Math is involved with science, right? Is there a magic number? Hmmm… 666?

It is supposed to be the number of man as well. So, what is man? What is our basic substructure that allows us to be in physical form? Carbon, right? Do you see where I’m going? Carbon has an atomic structure of 6 protons, 6 electrons and 6 neutrons. If anything, 666 could be the number of man. It certainly would put us all on a level playing field with equal foundation for all. Could this be the wisdom in the number? Okay, now what?

Can we consider our environment a ‘thoughtmosphere’ that we can observe as our thoughts permeate our bodies and, according to some sources, may even extend to quite a distance around us. How? One aspect is electromagnetic energy from our brain. Another is the ‘chi’ coursing through our nervous system. Yet another are the sensations we feel when in the presence of certain individuals, different from emotions.

So there is an intangible component that could, given our current understanding of electrochemical neurocircuitry, begin completely new pathways, with the assistance of one of those intangible benefits – our thoughts – aggravated, circumvented, contemplated, detected, implemented, infected, mutilated, rejected and underrated. At least that is where we’ve been getting assistance… unconscious behavior and run a muck thinking.

Let’s look at how that fits in with the last of the apocalyptic notions, the end of the Mayan Calendar or, more appropriately, the end of the galactic year. It is only a cycle of time, yet the implications brought up by the multitude of sources regarding the advancement of consciousness during this time sure fits the apocalypse of the Bible as well. Neither were intended as ‘end times’ scenarios, but featured a new era among humans – something transformational. It is a closing of one age and an entrance into another, but not only that, it appears to be a massive shift in how we look at life on Earth and with each other. Will we see world peace in our lifetimes?

That will remain to be seen and surely will be a product of how well we learn to work together to restore our environment, if we can, and end poverty in the world. Those would be the two greatest indicators of our success and, in reality, nothing short of that will give us reason to say we are truly a civilized world based on current best practices and thinking.

Now you might ask, “So, how does this affect my life. What’s in it for me?” That is the absolute best question you could ask right now. Why? Because in order to get the best answer, you’ll have to get involved in the process of answering it. Huh? Here’s another way of looking at it: you get what you give. In other words, the better you learn how to practice what you know is best for you, the more open and receptive you will be to better ways of being, doing and having your results be the evidence that is irrefutable.

Each of us have the opportunity of taking an inventory of who we are, where we are, how we are and when we are in the precious present. It’s part of the best practices of self-awareness, so we might as well dive in. What is the worst that could happen? You might find out you haven’t been as honest with yourself as you could have been. Cool. Did you get hit by lightning? Did your body tremble with fear as you faced the fact? Alright, so nothing happened. Imagine if you could change and be a better you? No one is perfect, so we can all improve a bit.

Alright, so if you run out of questions or would like to entertain some that have led to a better life for others, you might want to look into a short book I wrote about coursework for connecting to your inner-most observer. It’s called, aptly, “Cosmic Conundrum: Who Am I?” and you can find it as a soft cover or on Kindle, both available through Amazon for $19.95 and $9.99 respectfully. It is the result of over 30 years of intense personal growth and development in self-awareness.

I think any time one goes down this path, we wish to share what we’ve found in as many ways as possible. Although there is a cost for coursework, you’ll find a lot more of my work is available for free if you just do a search in your favorite engine. For now, you have the opportunity for an amazing 2013 with just this information alone. I am blessed by sharing. Namaste….

Are we really one?

Are we really one?

Is this a question we ask in our daily deliberations? If we do, what do our answers reflect? How do we respond in our thoughts and actions on a moment to moment basis?

Amidst the daily travails of tending to our relationships on personal and professional levels, the question might never arise. Some years ago, nearly 36 now, I had a near death experience that changed the way I viewed life and set me firmly on the path of inquiry. I became and eduholic in the trust sense, I dug deep within me to bring out the knowledge we are supposed to have access to according to everything I’ve read and studied. Have you found the latter to be true as well?

The more I questioned, the more fun life became and opportunities to explore what I could do continued to knock on my door. I excelled in school and sports when I was young and coagulated possibilities across a number of industries as I continued to develop skills. My early marriage failed, though, and hardened my heart toward money as a result. Twenty three years after the divorce and I’m finally recognizing just how deeply wounded I was, heal myself, and creatively open to ascend from the pit. Honestly, I would not have grown to know the secrets of relationship had I healed earlier.

So, back to the question: Are we really one?

To me, because I am an assimilation of my experiences, I hear that question from a different place than most. Beyond the profound personal and professional relationships I’ve developed over the years, there has been a part of me that has remained an observer. I had a recent experience that might make that a little clearer.

On the morning of Good Friday last, seems so fitting now, I was breaking up the lox to add to the eggs and then pour into the sauteed onions simmering on the stove. I was enjoying the moment when suddenly I felt a wave of depression so deep that it caught all of my attention. I mused for a moment, wondering what the heck that was all about. I turned to the stove to pour the mixture into the skillet and noticed that my body was beginning to go limp. I could feel it slipping away and was completely conscious of it, like we were about to separate.

I called for Robin (I knew I was going to head for the bed and our breakfast needed tending) and headed for the bedroom. I was just able to get to the bed and sprawl upon it. I could hear perfectly and was able to speak as well, yet the rest of my body wasn’t cooperating, nor did I particularly want it to at the time. I was rather enjoying the sensation as I was still fully conscious and not afraid of anything.

As I lay there while Robin was tending to breakfast, my eyes were closed. In my field of sight, I noticed a fuzzy thin circle of light that was pulsing in and out, smaller to larger from a ball of light in the center to the circle that took up about 80% of my screen. I watched it for a number of cycles, checking my breathing rate compared to it (different) and feeling my heart beat as I watched. It was really pretty relaxing and when you’ve lost the need to control your body, it was quite freeing to say the least.

I can only assume that, because of the waves of cosmic energy we’re encountering as we move further into the Photon Belt, we can avail ourselves as open-hearted humans seeking to know more about how to be spiritual; connected to everything in ways we are only beginning to experience. There are myriads of folks around the planet who have congruent views and mobius operandi of sorts. I checked in to see if others had similar experiences that day and, oddly enough, many did. Some even experienced their ‘wave’ at the same time. Interesting….

How did we arrive at being available, let alone aware, of this type of possibility? We began tracing the origins of religion to determine where the incongruous or missing data was located. Certainly what we have today is far from the root of the word ‘religion’ – reunion with God. Isn’t that ‘oneness,’ though? A reunion with God? How does that work?

Since my upbringing was Christian, I’ll proffer the findings that led to an interesting conclusion. How were we created? Before Adam and Eve was Adam and Lilith. The latter was a story of equality; created from the same material, at the same time and with equal power. So that cleared the whole patriarchal nonsense up. Constantine did a great job, uniting religion and politics with harsh punishment for those who didn’t follow the faith. Most of our current data is skewed on purpose, leading us astray rather than home.

Then there was the question of Satan. Where did that come from? A considerable amount of research and time showed that the Greek ‘thetan’ was the culprit. It means ‘thinker.’ So our adversary is our mind. Now THAT makes sense. Many years later I had a conversation with Jesus (yes, it’s possible) and he verified that he fought with his mind and not some external tempter. His battle and fears are the same as mine, not being quiet enough to hear well and miss the call for fulfilling my divine mission here on Earth.

So what was that all about? Jesus was different. He demonstrated the connection with the divine and encouraged others to do so as well. He called attention to any lack of integrity, liability, limitation or excuse for limiting their relationship with life and love. Ultimately, he led the way for us to understand that death is not inevitable and that we truly can transcend it just as he did, such as his words to Thomas, “Don’t ye know that ye are god as I am god?” I think that qualifies as oneness, eh?

Now that led me to wondering about Lucifer. According to the records, he was the Most High Angel of Light and Music. Knowing the parameters of quality contained in light and music, there seems little to on likelihood that one of that status would abandon their post. I learned that ‘condensed’ was used in place of ‘fallen’ in some of the ancient texts. Wow, the light went off. Every pun intended there. Lucifer led us into form through condensing our celestial consciousness into these bodies. It has been so long ago that no one remembers.

However, Jesus example of taking us back home – returning to the Father – makes wonderful sense when you look at the ‘cycle’ of incarnation and ascension. No doubt it could take many lifetimes for a consciousness to regain the connections to the finer vibrations after being so dense as a carbon-based life-form. In case that raised an eyebrow, 666 is the atomic number… then number of man, revealed through science. Could be arguable, but you’ve got to admit it all makes sense from a perspective of ONE.

Individuality is not threatened by this perspective at all. In fact, it is encourage through free will, yet there are apparently some blueprints on the soul level that manage the operation of each. Astrology gives us a hint of our potential and provides us with parameters that most closely fit our character and personality in alignment with the stars. Since we come from the stars, stardust, it might make sense to have a working knowledge or your arrangement. Even without it, you can notice how you’ve developed knowledge, skill sets and vocational aptitude over time. If you hate your job, then you probably aren’t aligned with your chart. If you love what you are doing, then the opposite is most likely.

What about business, though? How does that work? Most recently, the International Standards Organization came out with the ISO 26000 standards for social responsibility. The more businesses, companies and corporations can align their behavior with these standards, the better chance we have of creating a new world order of harmony among people and planet and creating harmony from the chaos.

We all seek to understand exactly who we are in order to figure out what we are to do, I think. Have we become too myopic for our own good? Are we capable of shifting if that is the case? How deep is the rabbit hole and how deep can we go in our assessment of what needs to be done and do it? What does the lexicon: Jobarchy bring up for you? Does it sound like the job is the boss? Hmmm… that aligns with service to others -Ra. We find out who we really are in the process of serving. Wow, sounds like the ultimate win/win.

There is a sense of restlessness among the American people. Something is happening in our nation that appears manipulated, even to the casual observer, and we feel helpless in its wake. It amazes the author that a powerful society, led by corporate giants, military elite, and political prominence has gone unchecked for so long. Some time ago, individuals were made sovereign in the United States yet the sovereignty, voting rights, are only used by about a third of those able to vote. What happened?

With respect to all my relatives, it is quite well known through several variations on the theme that the US is supposed to lead by example into the Golden Age, or whatever we choose to call it now. Right? “When the people lead, the leaders will follow” is a button that I have on my favorite jacket. It is truly an honor to be amongst the initiators of the AC. Its commandry complement is a ONEderful process to behold. I feel good about people returning to love after feeling apart. Kinda makes your eyes water a little, huh?

Many voices are echoing a concern for people and planet, renewable and sustainable resources, and the shift needed in our ‘global village’ consciousness. Diversity issues are rampant in the enlightened community still; affecting our ability to perform. I wonder if there is Viagra for the soul? Sheeple, unsuspecting of the adverse effects of cutting edge advertising and marketing, continue to bicker about insignificant issues in the grand scheme of things, yet, will not raise an eyebrow of concern when we spend billions of dollars on foreign aid in a stalled economy. Pointing fingers and crying wolf is certainly not an option. Who listens anyway?

Why not just develop solutions with all the new ‘best practices’ of management philosophy applied to holistic understanding? Begs the question of naivety doesn’t it? Maybe it is better to not know what cannot be done so that we can co-create what answers the situations that are staring us in the face?

I believe when we focus on those things we will experience a wonderful unfoldment of our individual identities far brighter that we ever dreamed possible. By surrendering our lives to the cause, we gain them back exponentially. Kinda funny how that works, huh? We all recognize the spirals of coming into awareness and because of that we become quite forgiving of others, and our own, faults. We’re all doing our best to find common ‘space’ so to speak.

There is a new collective evolving in society- the Cultural Creatives. The Cultural Creatives, a new book by Paul Ray, Ph.D., and Sherry Ruth Anderson, Ph.D., based on research sponsored by the Institute of Noetic Sciences and The Fetzer Institute, estimates that 50 million adult Americans resonate with the emerging new values. The following are just a few:

• Spirituality and personal growth    • Self-esteem and self-empowerment

• Community    • Social healing, reconciliation and conflict resolution

This collective is growing and becoming more restless as lives are lost unnecessarily, through little wills of men. Feminine consciousness and meaningful work are more traits the collective shares. Men can think with just one head when they are secure in themselves. Together constructed plans, projects, and proposals are being shared that utilize our collective passion to love and be loved, beginning with ourselves and expanding into our workplaces, businesses, organizations and schools.

This movement is developing a network of its own throughout the World Wide Web. Where will it go? How can we all have a hand in its direction and find a place for ourselves in the process? There is an area within Human Resources that seeks to answer those questions and more. It is called Organizational Development, or OD in jargon terms. There is a science emerging that reveals how humans with spiritual understanding (connectedness of all things) actually mold and shape their environments to a greater degree of integration, even practiced as diversity initiatives in larger corporations.

Be The Dream is just one group that fits into the collective, offering a variety of concepts, plans, and resources for evolving our society in a big way. As much time as it took to gather information, write and edit, post and build a website to support the effort, it is pale by comparison to the exponential effect from the affect of the individuals devoting their lives to this paradigm shift, this change agentry within the global village. Many unsung heroes and heroines spend countless hours constructing and creating marvelous works on the Web.

Who is guiding, leading, and following? Is any of that happening? How can we utilize our group soul better? As a great man once said, “Change comes from within.” What does it look like when it gets out? Imagine if all our hearts’ desires and dreams expressed in cyberspace and inner-space started leaking out into our everyday space. WOW… worlds of wonder!

Here is one way that may be happening sooner than later. The International Organization for Standards (ISO) has already garnered corporate attention with the ISO 9000 quality management standards. A new and improved social responsibility standard, ISO 26000, was introduced after years of development. It’s premise, to be a first step in helping all types of organization in both the public and private sectors to consider implementing ISO 26000 as a way to achieve the benefits of operating in a socially responsible manner.

From iso.org:

ISO 26000 provides guidance for all types of organization, regardless of their size or location, on:

  1. Concepts, terms and definitions related to social responsibility
  2. Background, trends and characteristics of social responsibility
  3. Principles and practices relating to social responsibility
  4. Core subjects and issues of social responsibility
  5. Integrating, implementing and promoting socially responsible behaviour throughout the organization and, through its policies and practices, within its sphere of influence
  6. Identifying and engaging with stakeholders
  7. Communicating commitments, performance and other information related to social responsibility.

ISO 26000 is intended to assist organizations in contributing to sustainable development. It is intended to encourage them to go beyond legal compliance, recognizing that compliance with law is a fundamental duty of any organization and an essential part of their social responsibility. It is intended to promote common understanding in the field of social responsibility, and to complement other instruments and initiatives for social responsibility, not to replace them.

In applying ISO 26000, it is advisable that an organization take into consideration societal, environmental, legal, cultural, political and organizational diversity, as well as differences in economic conditions, while being consistent with international norms of behaviour. [end]

Now we have the opportunity to rise above our differences and focus on what is important to all of us in order to move forward as a planetary civilization.

Metatron’s Message… and editorial.

2rainbowdragon-150x150The following comes from a ‘channeling’ or discourse from a being known as Metatron. No, it isn’t Alan Rickman, but the character is quite the same – known in the Rabbinic traditions as the celestial scribe. This ‘voice’ may find resonance in your field of consciousness and assist the personal growth challenges facing you now. It did with me.

The only difference between an Avatar and an ordinary man is the location of the energy held within the energy bodies. An ordinary man has all his energy “locked-up” in stored emotions and memories in the emotional body, and beliefs, dogmas and thoughts in the mental body.

The ordinary man has a flat spiritual body, for there is no energy to spare from the demands of the emotions and thoughts. An avatar has clear emotional and mental bodies. All the energy held within an Avatar’s subtle bodies, is stored in the Spiritual Body.

For a Master, the energy associated with emotion flows into the emotional body from the spiritual body IN THE MOMENT, and is released to the spiritual body once the emotional stimulus has ended.

The energy associated with a thought flows from the spiritual body to the mental body, and then is released to the spiritual body as the thought is completed. This leaves an Avatar’s energy free, to use according to his will. The spiritual energy is available to an avatar because it is not consumed by thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and memories. This is the energetic structure each of you must create in your energy bodies, during tenth and eleventh level Light Body. This will allow each of you to perform miracles such as manifesting thought into physical reality.

Eleventh level of Light Body is a natural progression from tenth, and many times the transition is so easy, the shift isn’t noticed. The spiritual abilities continue to grow, and the physical body begins to change in appearance. Your physical body becomes luminous, glowing, and appears very beautiful. You might have friends and acquaintances suddenly remarking that you look younger, or that you have changed in some way that is indefinable. Eleventh level brings deeper levels of processing on your emotional issues. At this level you must deal with all your beliefs and thought forms around death and loss.

You might create disillusionment, or even find you are creating your deepest fears within your physical life so you can clear them completely by experiencing them. Any stored energy held in the emotional or mental body after tenth level is completed must be released to the spiritual body in eleventh level. If you do not deal with those issues while you are in tenth level, you will manifest them in your lives within the eleventh. But, you truly have nothing to fear but fear itself when you are at eleventh level Light Body.

Twelfth level Light Body is the Ascension. It is marked by the movement of the Merkabah into the heart center of your body. The Merkabah can most easily be described as a golden ball of light. It is the Vehicle of your Ascension, and a major initiation for you when it happens. That event is the beginning of your personal Ascension into a Fifth Dimensional world of Oneness. The Ascension can occur at an individual level, it can occur within a group, or it will occur as a part of the collective experience. You will Ascend when you are Ready, whether you do it alone, as a part of a group, or as a part of the ‘Planetary Shift’ yet to come. There is not a period for the ascension in any way. At an individual level there are ascensions occurring daily.

Since Harmonic Convergence the energy has been available for the shift into a Fifth Dimensional Consciousness while in a physical body. There are many beings, who are incarnate because they have volunteered to serve by testing the Light Body experiment. They are the first ones to move into Ascension. For the rest of you, the Light Body program will continue until you are ready, and then you will shift. Ascension is a very simple thing. It is a change that occurs in an instant, but you are still here. The Sun will still shine and the Stars will still twinkle. The difference is Joy, your ability to live Joy and to feel Joy.

The easiest way to verify that Ascension has happened is to note the quality of joy in a person’s life.

The beginning of the Ascension is when a person begins living life by creating their fantasies as their reality. I, Metatron can define JOY as Nirvana, Ecstasy, or Rapture.

It is that state of ‘Oneness with God.’ It can also be defined as your center or being on your center. That clear space you can achieve in meditation where energy is flowing and you feel that absolute Cosmic Oneness with all. Whatever brings you pleasure or feelings of lightness, and whatever you would define as joy, is a pathway to that state.

If you are working as a part of a spiritual group, you will experience a series of faster shifts in your processing. When one member of your group notices the embodiment of the Merkabah, you all will have received it, and will soon become aware of it also. The individual members may not have noticed this occurring at first, but at least one member of the group was ready for it, and as a result the entire group will get the benefit. A group working on Ascension has a tremendous advantage because Fifth Dimensional Consciousness is a consciousness of “Oneness” or in other words, the group is One. Working with a group creates enormous synergistic energy, where each of you is far more powerful than you would be if you were alone. It also gives each member a chance to learn to relate both as individuals, and from oneness within the group. This is an essential fifth dimensional consciousness shift that everyone must make.

As individuals and groups focus on Ascension, they should focus on beginning to recreate their lives as absolute masterpieces of joy. As they do so, they will begin to live from joy, and later, they will become Joy. As each of you does this, you will begin to shift everyone you come into contact with in your daily life, broadcasting the energy of joy to them and waking them up to that frequency. The Mass Ascension will occur when the majority of ascending humans on the planet are existing in this state of joy, and not until. The reason for this fact, is that this planetary experience is one of free agency. In this Multi-dimensional Universe, free agency is Divine Law.

It’s all good!

As selfish as it may be, I filter information through my experience. I haven’t necessarily asked for the experience, but made myself available to it through the ability to let go of emotional/intellectual/physical/spiritual constraints with…in the consciousness of my form. I am blessed through the association of cosmic kin.

My experience includes a testimony of the Light (asked to die for what I believed in – cosmic consciousness), Jesus’ appearance in front of others (the only time I ever ‘channeled’) and integration of the 9 light bodies up to the 12th plane (process developed by William Swygaard).

I’ve been a contactee since childhood, evolving into the awareness of Ashtar and Athena being parental figures of my cosmic scene. Somehow I’ve managed to maintain some balance and a respectable professional life as well, spanning many industries and skill sets.

I’m sure it may sound incredulous to some, but it is what it is. Like Rumi, I see no master or disciple…only shared space activated by choice. I’m honored and humbled deeply. I’m not sure of any other way to test the truth. I share to encourage those who live on the edge, the fringes of the thoughtmosphere, to engage this life as fully as possible, coagulating those possibilities to be the dream… ONE.

Oneness truly is a state that we all can experience, like breathing. It is a natural place within us, the foundation of our existence. Our layer upon layer of thought forms created from millennia of misunderstanding gives us a phenomenal opportunity to shift, simply by letting go. We already know there is no death, yet we often hold onto life in such a way that it restricts our awareness and functionality.

I’ve said all that to say this – we have duties to perform; cosmic, soular or whatever you choose to term them. It is imperative that we acknowledge and engage them at whatever perceived risk we may be taking. I know what public and private ridicule can be like and bless those who have weathered the storms on the ocean of emotion to remain free and vocal, encouraging others to do the same. Ascension is a proactive process, facilitated by our choices to step into our cosmic/divine paths fully, even when we might not completely understand them.

Ascension is also an organic process, growing from the depths of our consciousness and connecting our cosmic threads to the tapestry of life. Having a gentleman from Ghana pop in on chat during this writing is a perfect example. Why or how he connected with me through the millions of users is a mystery… but he did. His name is Fred Edbrain. These acts of profound wisdom beyond our current state of awareness are what fuel the ascension process, the awe and joy created by the connections.

Discovering Our Sunship?

celest-150x150A sun is still a mystery of spiritual and physical presence, an enigma in the intelligent design scenario. Three suns – thrice the mystery. An a physical level, hydrogen and helium are at work. Hydrogen is the only element bereft of electrons. Just a side note btw… Carbon’s atomic arrangement: 666 (hint.. hint)

The Great Central Sun is a ubiquitous reference in esoteric philosophy. Is our central sun actually three suns? In the summer of 1989, while learning a technique developed by William Swygaard (sp) in the 1950s, I was privileged to enjoy some interesting explorations in the dynamics of human consciousness. Swygaard had written a book describing two techniques for exploring the depths of our psychospiritual composition.

The two techniques are called Multi-level Awareness and Multi-plane Awareness and his book was originally one of two covers and no back, meaning the two were in one, much like ‘Doors of Perception’ and ‘Heaven and Hell’ by Aldous Huxley. These processes, although facilitated by a trained guide, allowed deeper individual experiences to evolve within the framework of the process.

By this I mean only vague prompts were given to direct the consciousness in a particular direction, based on the responses given in answer to the questions of the facilitator. The experience was totally spontaneous from the individual’s perspective from that point onward, allowing a freer exploration of the worlds within. The purpose of the facilitator was more as a prompter and recorder; to maintain a verbal link with the experiencer so that reflections could be made afterward. In this way there was some record for reviewing for the experiencer.

This was definitely a metaphysical experience, yet it seems to correlate to much of the scientific research and referencing of the ‘Holographic Universe’ of Michael Talbot’s discovery and sharing. In fact, this paradigm has been present in several physicist’s and scientist’s exploration and revelatory considerations.

Among them [paradigm shifters] are Alain Aspect, David Bohm, Karl Pribham, and Karl Lashley. Complexologists at the Sante Fe Institute have created yet another theory that the Universe actually seeks to replicate itself, based on their study of the math, physics, and science surrounding cosmology, quantum environments, and thermodynamics to name a few.

Striving to understand how our universe works leads us to better understand how the human enigma works in its interaction and living amongst the stars. Apparently instantaneous ‘faster than light’ communication between individuals, as well as brain cells, is a reality and violates the long-held notion that Einstein fostered: no communication can travel faster than the speed of light.

The information age, along with scientific exploration made possible through discovery and development of new paradigms and technology, brings with it the ability of man to question everything he/she has learned about humans to date. This includes being able to cross-reference, if you will, the scientific and spiritual manifestos of our history on planet Earth. So let me take you on a little journey. You don’t have to believe it was real, although I will do my best to relate it objectively.

On this particular afternoon, I was in process of preparing for one of these multi-level awareness journeys. I began by doing some deep breathing relaxation to prepare for the process. I was feeling my body and mind relax when all of a sudden, Zephyr, a guide I’d known since my late teens, showed up and gave me that look. You know the one, where you know you are about to have something very profound happen and you let go of anything else on your mind. So it was. He simply motioned with his arm and said, “Come.” And so I did.

I exited my body with such ease that I hardly felt the departure. Now the interesting thing is that by practicing this technique, I had the ability to describe what I was seeing and hearing along the way. As soon as Zephyr showed up, I was communicating my experience to the would be facilitator, who was now about to tested in their ability to respond in a much different way. I’m sure it had to have been pretty weird sitting in the chair next to me that day! I had to explain who Zephyr was later, so let me do so now.

I’d met Zephyr while studying metaphysics with a small group of explorers in college in my late teens. We all read many books as well and I was in process of reading Carlos Castaneda’s works. I think I was on Journey to Ixtlan at the time. I remember one of the consistent threads of other spiritual works being the existence of spirit guides or allies, as he called them. I had inquired within, through prayer, regarding the existence of and ability to communicate with a guide or ally or guardian angel if you will that was ‘assigned’ to me.

During a meditation one afternoon about a week later the name Zephyr and a face of an Indian appeared in my mind instantaneously. He appeared as an ancient Indian, with eyes so deep and simultaneously cold and warm, peering into my depths of my soul, yet with respect of my being.

I was able to do some research later, assisted by a friend that was an adept at automatic writing, and found that his incarnation was over 20,000 years ago in what is now the Southwest US. I’ve had numerous occasions to journey with him since. If you’ve had similar experiences you can relate. If you haven’t, well just consider it a great story.

This was a bit different because there was now a witness to record my experience as I related it. As I exited my body, he became a sphere of light with his face as the only feature. I first noticed his profile, with that large Indian nose… rather reminiscent of Jimmy Durante. I found it a bit humorous and told him so. Nothing can be hidden in those realms as even the fleeting thoughts are as apparent as turning a light on in a darkened room. So as I was entertaining myself at his expense he turned and faced me with that look again.

I asked him where we were going and he only responded that I would find out shortly. He began asking questions of my spiritual path to date and what I’d learned since the last time we journeyed. I could see faintly the points of light, elongated, as we were whizzing by at an incredible speed. I suppose the only reference would be the speed of thought?

According to the Urantia Book, an interesting exploration of the structure of creation, the speed of thought is approximately 841 trillion miles per second. I’ve never seen a reference to the speed of thought anywhere else. Whether or not that is correct we can accept that it is indeed quite fast, much faster than the speed of light.

In answer to my question of direction, Zephyr told me just to wait and see. I probed again and his silence was absolute. I then spoke to him of other things that I had experienced lately and he responded with analysis, some sick humor, and engaged me in some great bantering that left me feeling very humble after having some pride in the depth of understanding I thought I’d been expressing to him. I think we probably all feel that way when our bubbles are burst by our elders, bringing us back to a humble reality.

One of the aspects of the Path is to be so rooted in one’s own knowing as they are expressing it, yet being able instantly to let go of the attachment of its truth in order for further depths of understanding to occur. Sometimes the knowing shifts and must be left behind as merely a stone on the path. At other times, the knowing evolves into a much deeper acknowledgment of ‘what is’ in the conundrum of ‘What is reality?’ This bantering lasted for about eight minutes, according to the facilitator, as the arrival at our destination brought it to an abrupt close.

I suppose that the constant recounting of conversation helped to anchor congruent patterns of thought and holographic reality at that point. Very humbling nonetheless. The discussion also had a profound affect on the facilitator’s life as it verified some inklings he’d been entertaining as possible answers to some of his own questions about the nature of creation and reality as we know it.

I noticed a slowing of momentum and as soon as I did, I felt an abrupt halt. We had arrived at a solar system that was beautiful beyond belief. If you’ve seen Contact and Jodie Foster’s character as she witness the beauty of space you can imagine the feeling of awe that overcame me then. We had stopped outside the perimeter of the largest orbit of the dozen or so planets that revolved around three huge suns that appeared to be equidistant in the center of this system.

Again, the sight of this brought up the feeling of awe that came from such an indescribably beautiful display, much like the movie ‘Contact,’ only this was nearly a decade before its making. I only had a moment to take in the beauty before I heard a voice that felt like the combination of the suns speaking as one. I listened intently. The sensation was like a river of energy flowing through me. In response to the natural curiosity and questions I must have been thinking, the voice (s) said, “We are not only your forefathers, we are also the forefathers of your solar system.”

I felt such a deep connection to those words and the resonance of truth that I was speechless for a moment. I wish there was a word to describe it. You get the picture… I was blown away. Zephyr said, “Okay, that’s it, time to go.” It took me a moment to regain composure and I began to want to ask some questions. Zephyr cut me off immediately saying, “No questions now, you’ve got all the information you need. You’ll figure it out.” Rats!

I needed some more feedback. My mind needed more information to process. I argued for a few moments and then gave in to the trip back. He never did respond to those direct questions…damn stoic Indian. He was kind enough to offer some things to ponder, though, which gave me much more than I realized at the time.

Once back in the room and relating the journey to fill in the gaps of my description of the scenery, what I found interesting is that each leg of the journey was consistent. According to the facilitator’s watch the journey of going and coming were about 8 minutes long, which was more than just coincidence it seemed. This would indicate that it was indeed a journey that crossed some major distance at the speed of thought or something similar yet to be measured by modern science.

Just how the actual vehicles became ‘real’ or the method of travel was something I didn’t understand as a repeatable process. I suppose, like any form of journeying, it could be practiced and perfected over time. But, I’m not sure Zephyr would be at my beckon call. In a lot of cases, the event is not necessary to repeat as the impact leaves such a profound experience that lifetimes are spent articulating the findings.

I did feel an unusually high resonance with the idea of these suns being the foundation of our Trinity. Just imagine what this could mean to the developmental theories of creation and our scientific explorations into the depths of material structure. I do know this: it was much more that my feeble brain was able to interpret, yet the imagery, voice, and travel were very real.

I’d been on many journeys to date and this was one of the most profound and potentially rewarding in the development of a cognitive model that removes conjecture and superstition regarding the nature of how we got here. To understand the mechanisms of creation from that point requires some intense study of the internal structure of creation. Metaphysics seeks to explain this in my opinion.

Quantum physics and complexologists are moving closer to explaining the next levels of consciousness in mathematical terms that result in patterns encountered in inner space. Methinks we are on the verge of a Cosmic Evolution. Blessings…

The Discipline and Practice of ‘Letting Go’

alex_grey_parabola1-300x225We’ve all heard the phrase, ‘Let go and let God.’ Can we?

Do we have to really work on recognizing and releasing our attachments to outcome? Usually we do; working through the frustrations of self-criticism along the way. Oftentimes, we find ourselves in a vicious vortex of self-destructive patterns. That same vortex can just as quickly release us when we know how to let go of our critical subjective nature, acknowledge the feeling, allow the feeling without denial, choose to release it, observe its release and accept a better feeling. Sounds so simple in theory. What if it really is?

This practice is a relatively simple yet profound tool for transformation and transcendence. You might already realize the advantages. What you will be doing is synergizing your breath with your feelings, releasing the emotional blocks or bottlenecks to your true freedom and flow. Depending on what you uncover, it can work quickly or take some time. The process, once perfected, can be used anywhere at any time. The results are experienced in many ways, all of them good, as they offer deeper understanding of your own feeling patterns.

We can either respond or react to any situation. By responding, we pause and reflect before we act. The observer within allows us to step away from the emotional attachment to outcome, yet helps us define those attachments because we have become aware of them now. Once aware, we can choose how to respond rather than react out of some unconscious pattern of old behavior.

Personal growth does not have to be painful. Why would we want to continue to experience pain, then? We can observe and not be engaged by the disturbance. So recognizing that the observer is a really powerful place, how do we find it? The focus of this exercise is to move beyond disturbance in your emotional patterns, the blocks or resistance to change or growth, and become the observer of your process.

Sometimes we have enough awareness to be able to ask why we reacted to a situation in such an inappropriate or incongruous way. That question is an opportunity to explore the deeper causes of our reaction. The following exercise is designed to allow you to garner greater awareness and control of your responses to stimuli.

Exercise:

  • Recall a situation where you reacted emotionally out of control.
  • Remember the feeling that triggered the reaction. Embrace it now.
  • Feel the feeling as deeply as if it had just happened again.
  • Take a deep breath and let it go. On the exhale, feel yourself relax and release.
  • Imagine that the feeling is now gone, replaced by a better feeling.
  • Breathe deep, again and breathe again. Feel the tension leave your body?
  • Notice that you feel better, less stressed and less tense.

That is the process. It is that simple. You probably had forgotten about the feeling, right? There could be a bit of residual emotion still. That, too, can disappear with practice. Imagine if you took conscious breaths on a regular basis.

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?
