Core Competencies

cosmic consciousness

Universal Programming

Recent discussions have revealed that perhaps a plan of appropriate action is deserved of implementation. Many of us have been observing and planning how to assist the movement of change through America and the world… for the better. I chose to engage education and the practicum of working with people, places and things to do stuff… a lot of stuff across many industries. It gave me a feel for people and process… protocols aside for the moment.

I wasn’t sure how to move forward myself for a long time, but I produced an overabundance of stuff in the meantime including books, business plans, websites and more. The intended theme throughout them all was to benefit our society and the world in some small way… or large way if possible. I seem to be caught between the brilliance and insanity of the somnambulists amongst us. The logic of creating small nodes of community that find, filter and fund activities that promote advancing consciousness, critical thinking and sustainability of planetary progress necessary to feed, cloth, house and offer care for us all seems simple enough to understand.

Core competencies can be defined as “a harmonized combination of multiple resources and skills that distinguish a firm in the marketplace.” I’d like to focus on the ‘harmonized combination’ of that phrase and extrapolate it to community and society status in general. What we have to date is, by all apparent signs, a discordant set of priorities and protocols that rule our lives in community and society as a whole. It certainly isn’t harmonized or even holistic in terms of how our administrative frameworks are being used.

It seems we’re fighting for the right to decide what’s right for others instead of looking within at what is right for us individually. Our political system gets sidetracked by corporate greed and military spending and certainly does not function in the best interests of the citizens. The homeless situation in America is a perfect example as it includes veterans as well. It is the last thing we hear about in the news, if at all.

I don’t want to point fingers, necessarily, as the rule of thumb is there are three pointing back. My adoptive father, rest in peace, taught me very young that if you are going to point fingers at a problem (people are never the issue, it is their behavior that is), then have at least three solutions to offer or keep your mouth shut. Such wisdom I found to be priceless as I grew up and yet its display absent in private and public environments. It seemed absurd that such wisdom wasn’t ubiquitous. Nevertheless, it is not. So, what do we do to rally the troupes, so to speak, in order to gather a momentum of positive change in America? That’s were I live and where I must start. Perhaps the same process and protocols may apply in other locations.

Many years ago I read that America was to be the leading force in the new age of enlightenment. America, under the guidance of various forces of ‘light’ and ‘unity consciousness,’ was to be the way-shower for the world. America certainly has been a way-shower for activities; military, political and scientific programs that have not had the best of results for people and/or planet. American business endeavors have done more to pollute the air, earth and water than feed, cloth and house the world’s population by far. I get the sense I’m hedging the finger-pointing. I just wanted to establish a foundation of understanding of how things are currently that might find agreement amongst the majority. Now I’d like to begin to discuss the potential of possibilities to coagulate with relative ease.

Cosmic Consciousness – The Movement

Now you might think I’m going to launch into some kind of spiritual rhetoric because of the mention of cosmic consciousness. Just the opposite is true, I hope. I want to get real practical with the concept of condensing into form and becoming aware of how the process might work. A perfect example might be to understand how to relate to the world without becoming entrenched in the emotional or mental perturbations that are ignited by those who attempt to move populations through fear-based propaganda. I posit that anything that acts to separate any individual from another is always fear-based, regardless of how logically or smoothly it is presented. A slick politician can tell someone to go to hell and get them to look forward to the trip; another bit of Dad’s wisdom. So what? What now?

Change is slow. Initiated change is methodical, strategic and transformative. People, places and things come together for a variety of purposes and results. Sometimes they come together through intentional activities, sometimes they come together by accidental or unintended situations if you believe in coincidence, that is. The point is that those three elements are like the Trinity of Transformation; the electron, proton and neutron of the building blocks of the physical world. Our mental focus and strategic planning are only surpassed by the implementation of such and the unanticipated results that come along with the best-laid plans. The element of intention, our attitude during any process, can promote results beyond expectation… the magic of the event. It happens in consciousness first. How do we set that up to happen more regularly?

Happy people get more done with less supervision. Given their state of being the results are often far beyond the expectations of the stated goals of the activity, whether it is for road and bridge construction or putting on an event for a quarter million people. The consciousness and state of mind of the participants create a thoughtmosphere of influence that permeates each individual and therefore  the activity itself. I was working as a merchandise vendor at a rock show one night when I witnessed an even that I had never seen before, even thought I’d vended a hundred shows or so to date. The patrons lined up perfectly at each attendants station without any prompting, something that just never happens. Usually the patrons gather in a mob with complete disorder and mayhem, often fighting for position at the vending tables. Depeche Mode was the band, in case you were wondering. Maybe you can explain why…

Engaging Movement

I found Thomas Frey to be an adequate instigator, perhaps because he’s the record-holder for patents at IBM and turned the entrepreneurial world on its head with the early incubator-driven co-working space development or even that he founded the DiVinci Institute, a kind of futurist think-tank school after leaving IBM. He wrote a piece on starting a movement that offers a plethora of details to consider if one was thinking about doing so. There is a process for everything. We just have to do the due diligence and research to find and understand the process. It is much wiser to do so that just to launch into it without much preparation. I see that a lot with folks who get the urge to start a business or project and have no background in working with people, places and things to do stuff. They get a rude awakening when they realize that their dream can happen, but it will take a considerably more amount of work than they thought.

So, the work… a movement. The cursory details for change comes with understanding what needs to change first. Then the how and who comes naturally, even within the scope and sequence of the Frey manifesto. We, as Americans, would like our political system to actually work for the people’s benefit. Those in play now have mixed agendas at best. So, we need to replace them with those who prove themselves to be of integrity and true service to their communities and constituents. Theoretically, the House and Senate can be remodeled in six years, according to the voting cycles now. Will that happen? Anyone seen a snowball in Phoenix lately? However, the components to facilitate that action can be put into place in about that time, resulting in the change happening in maybe 12 to 18 years.

The ‘how to’ is pretty simple, but it will take an astounding amount of collaboration, coordination and resources. Notice I said resources, not money. We’ve been duped into thinking the money is the root of all power. People are the root of power. People are and have resources, skill sets and materials that can be rallied together to create local events that promote a variety of solutions for community development and restoration. Restoration can be fun, too. The whole package can be initiated within the framework of festivals, where enjoyment and fun are the focus and techniques can be taught that bring enjoyment and new life to project development and management. Natural leaders emerge and engage their community at new levels. Leadership is vetted over time and invited to step into leading roles as necessary and willingness is present. That’s it in a nutshell. What kind of nuts will we crack in order to get to the meat?

 

Breathe Oneness

Breathe Oneness

I was reminded of an experience in Las Vegas almost 20 years ago now, at a weekend workshop called ‘Vision.’ Of course it was about self-development and creating alignment with purpose, people, places and things in our life.

The last day we (180 or so) were thrust into a ballroom with the edict of ‘creating a miracle.’ The miracle happened when the partner (for the seminar) of one of guys put a rose in a vase in the center of the room, unbeknownst to him at the time. Shortly later he arose from a meditation on the side of the room, walked over to the rose and sat with it, cross legged.

Before too long he was weeping uncontrollably. Many came to his aide and attempted to ‘make it okay,’ desiring to pull him out of the seeming funk. He responded with, “No, you don’t understand… you don’t understand.” After several minutes the entire group, again unbeknownst to him, had surrounded him, with arms outstretched and embracing one another as he continue to weep completely oblivious of his surroundings. Then he stopped.

Through tear-soaked and swollen eyes he looked up at the group around him now, all 180+ in a huge group hug…. simply loving in the silence of the embrace. He smiled and arose, wobbly from the outpouring. Someone asked him what happened. He said it was like the rose was a connection to the Earth and all the sorrow came pouring through it and into him.

It evidently began to subside as the group gathered around him, first wanting to push or pull him into a different place instead of allowing him to just BE in that moment. When they finally did just allow and embraced each other in a loving ‘unknowing’ the energy shifted and the sorrow subsided. The miracle had occurred.

In his statements about the experience he expressed the deep sorrow he felt from the rose vis a vis the planet and her deep despair regarding our treatment of each other and her simultaneously. It was nearly unbearable as he noted the words he spoke to those who, early on, attempted to get him to come out of that obvious despair, not knowing truly what it was. His response of, “No, you don’t understand!” came from deep within that consciousness that was being shared with him through the rose.

Ultimately they all at least got the message of our inhumane treatment of each other and the planet and at least for a brief moment in time they had all released any and all bias, judgment, prejudice or whatever… and breathed in and out together in a an embrace of unconditional love. It was truly magnificent to witness, this breath of oneness.

Just in case you haven’t experienced a breathing as one event… try Do As One.

Manifesting a New World Order – Harmony

OnePlanetA New World Order –

Harmony among People and Planet in Our Lifetime

The phrase ‘new world order’ creates concern in the hearts and minds of people everywhere. Why? There are two versions of this scenario. The polarity this creates offers a unique opportunity to view their reality. It presents the chance to examine, compare and contrast to determine what resonates as truth for each or whether there is a progression from one to the other somehow. Let us take a quick tour on a cursory level; a 30,000 foot view if you will.

From Wikipedia – The common theme in conspiracy theories about a New World Order is that a secretive power elite with a globalist agenda is conspiring to eventually rule the world through an authoritarian world government—which replaces sovereign nation-states—and an all-encompassing propaganda that ideologizes its establishment as the culmination of history’s progress. Significant occurrences in politics and finance are speculated to be orchestrated by an unduly influential cabal operating through many front organizations. Numerous historical and current events are seen as steps in an on-going plot to achieve world domination through secret political gatherings and decision-making processes.

Alternative view – The uncommon theme is an evolving New World Order that is happening organically through the rising of consciousness in humanity. It is serendipitous and synchronistic in the awareness of the individual or group. It is a process of the development of harmony among people and planet stemming from the intrinsic natural order embedded in our consciousness and linked within the genetic codes we have perceived as being inactive. It is the next level of evolution of our planetary civilization, but it doesn’t come without challenges. It certainly does not come with a magic wand as a panacea.

This new world order also has numerous historical indicators across ancient texts and cuneiform references. The process of chaos to order includes the manipulated efforts of the ‘control group’ so to speak, yet does not end there. This, too, shall pass in its time and with due process because it was forced into manifestation and does not resonate with natural order. Significant cosmological occurrences coincide with the political and financial indicators purported to be part of the culmination of the old world order masquerading as a new. We’re looking for sense to be made common.

Humans are the creation of cosmic consciousness condensing into form; light and sound lowering in vibratory rate through conscious volition. It has been happening for millennia, with an evolutionary leap occurring during one of the rotations of the Milky Way Galaxy around the Central Suns. It shows up as the ‘missing link’ in the evolutionary chart. The Big Bang had two aspects; one of consciousness and one material, created by the same universal consciousness that permeates all things in the space between the particles. Humans are just now beginning to perceive this consciousness enmasse through deep meditation and/or psychotropic journeys of the last half-century.

The experiencer or seeker arrives at a level of consciousness deep within being human that pulses with the heartbeat of creation, much slower than perceptually available to waking consciousness. Evidence of this can be found in references to the ‘sound current’ or Shabda. It is heard with the inner ear and often is confused for tinnitus at first. Through conscious effort at attaining silence and/or spontaneous quietude of a psychotropic experience this sound lowers and opens the consciousness to other worlds within.

Further evidence of this natural order shows up in the cross-references contained in the Chinese, Egyptian, Hindu, Hopi, Mayan and Sumerian calendars. Each one of the interpretations of these calendars alludes to a change of consciousness within the human race that leads to a new world order of significant transformation toward a greater good for all. The point of transition seemed to be the winter solstice of 2012 and thousands if not millions prepared for ‘something’ to happen. Nothing did outwardly and the chaos only continues to get worse.

We are indeed moving from one age to another. How is the chaos changing to order?

Earthquakes or natural disasters happen quickly. Planetary civilizations evolve slowly. Apparently the exponential rise in consciousness and drive for understanding began around the Harmonic Convergence, even though it was seeded by the efforts of explorers and pioneers of the 60s and 70s. Thanks to Paul Ray, Sherry Anderson and Malcolm Gladwell we can relate to the ‘tipping point’ of a ubiquitous rise of consciousness in the Cultural Creatives and their will to do good.

This rise in consciousness equates to understanding natural order and resonance with a theme of harmony among people and planet. The speed of surrender within the individual to the theme determines the smoothness of the transition. Understandably so, the process of chaos to order applies and the rise of a new civilization comes through the fall of another. It is a process, however painful, and results in a new world order.

The 25-year window on the other side of the 2012 Solstice, referencing the 50-year window that began with the Harmonic Convergence cosmological event, now offers the opportunity to implement what we’ve learned. It has begun with rapid advancement of sensitivities in many already, like the ‘clair-alls’ manifesting in an amazing number of people. The thoughtmosphere is ripe with new fruit and those who have remained faithful and true to the inner drive for understanding through faith, love and trust are harvesting greater clarity in the use of their natural abilities and skill sets developed through education and vocation.

The next steps appear to be conversations focusing solely on our capability, compassion and cooperative efforts to create better systems and technology to deliver food, clothing, health care and shelter to all. Inhibiting those conversations are distractions introduced by well-meaning individuals and groups that want to focus on the ills of our world instead and expose the nefarious acts of others. In truth, that action in itself is a nefarious act and stifles the flow of creative energy that empowers the smooth transition, yet their consciousness has not evolved to recognize it yet. This is neither good nor bad, just part of the process of transformation.

What we can do is encourage each other to remember the principle of energy following thought and do our best to limit the attention we give to what we do not want, such as the nefarious actions of others who wish to control our world’s resources for selfish gain. That does not mean we are in denial that it is happening – quite the contrary. What it means is we are better equipped than to let our thoughts get distracted.

As we think and act together, so shall the world change before our very eyes. What do you feel or see now as a result of reading this article? Is it on target or out of bounds? Why?

One World – Public Access

OneWorldShow1I had an interesting transition from marriage and the corporate ladder in early 1989. I had a major shift in my life to say the least. viagra 100mg I really tried to do my best in both worlds, but failed in each evidently. I acknowledge that I missed some signs in each, yet my inner direction and ‘guidance’ from that place of universal connection we all have seemed to want something different. It was nothing shy of traumatic and tumultuous and I wasn’t sure I’d make it through initially. It was a tough road for me emotionally and spiritually, yet I eventually made it to higher ground.

In the summer of ’89 I got involved with a project called ‘Earth Concert 1989‘ that was being spearheaded by a guy named Jean Hudon from Canada. He’d written a book called The Immortal Child that I found solace in during that period and eventually met up with him later in the year. While networking and looking for sponsors I had the opportunity to present the concept to the Christown Lion’s Club. I knew they were doing events and had a nice insurance policy that could prove very useful in acquiring a site for the Phoenix spoke of the event.

Something unexpected happened, though, and it led to the opportunity to produce and host a television show. The very first show was a conversation between a good friend and I about the focus of the show and what I hoped to accomplish. It was my first time on camera, so I was nervous as heck. Rodger Schnellenberger was actually the second choice for the conversation. Andy Olson, a local radio personality, was supposed to be there, but he got tied up with a meeting at work, so Rodger stepped in. What a gift, too. Rodger had a Masters in Television and Video production from Arizona State University and was very comfortable being put on the spot… in the light. Enjoy the view and I’ll pick it up again in a moment.

The discussion brought up key points regarding the progression of consciousness and new thought that was driving the conversations in the community of folks that many called ‘metaphysical,’ ‘new age,’ or ‘spiritual.’ At that time the internet was non-existent and the proliferation of ‘new thought’ was far from ubiquitous. I’d had the opportunity to put many of the philosophies to the test and distill an awareness that seemed worthy of sharing. I also felt that if I was going through this process, then others must be having these kind of challenges, too.

How the show evolved was nothing less than surreal as the whole chain of events seemed to have an invisible hand guiding them. After the presentation of the Earth Concert concept to the Lion’s Club, the president approached me to get involved with the group. He thought I’d get along famously with a guy who was currently directing a show for them that featured Harry Eagle, the origami man, who was teaching how to make origami.

Long story short, the director and I became fast friends and I went through the training classes to be able to participate in the behind the scenes production components at the public access studio. Our relationship extended into rock climbing and other desert adventures. Several months went by and I learned the various skills required to produce a show; audio and video decks, graphic generation and display, switcher, camera operation and floor direction. It was a lot of fun. At the time I was pretty well networked in the metaphysical community from events I’d been producing, both independently and with others.

One evening I could tell his patience with the talent was growing thin. I was sitting at the computer graphics generator, next to the switcher (used to control the lights, audio mix, camera displays and final feed to the 3/4 inch video recorder) where John was stationed as director. He turned to me during a break and asked me if I’d produce a show about ‘new age’ topics since I was already heavily involved in the community. I hadn’t said a word about my secret desire to do so. I told him I’d love to, but ‘new age’ wasn’t a label I wanted to use for the show as it was still very controversial and I wanted to be able to appeal to a larger population.

It took a little while and when we decided on ‘One World’ we thought it was more congruent with the theme of creating harmony among people and planet. I had no idea how I was going to structure the show, though. One afternoon I was meditating, with nothing particular on my mind, when all of a sudden the ‘format’ showed up. I’d bring guest on and ask a series of questions about who they are, what prompted to do what they are doing personal and professionally from both internal and external perspectives.

From there we’d explore the fears they encountered and, more importantly, how they overcame them and how they seem that pattern or process reflected in the people they worked with and in the community at large. Finally, we would discuss what barriers they see to a global community in harmony, how they see those barriers dissolving and what evidence they can offer of it. The first show was the kick-off where we’d introduce the concept and have some fun discussing the personal and professional paths Rodger and I had trod to date. As you saw, we really had no script and jumped in with both feet from the beginning.

What was really interesting was that Rodger and I had a number of private conversations off camera about the thinness of the veil between this life and the next. I’d had numerous experiences with necromancy, being able to talk to dead people, so our conversations took on a deeper dynamic. I had introduced him to his future wife, Annie, who was staying with me at the time. She was a gifted psychic as well as a really cool woman and they hit it off the moment they met. She was visiting from Scotland as well and after extending her visa, they moved to Kentucky to help his parents with their trucking business. A year later they returned to Phoenix to get married.

Rodger and I did a one-year anniversary show as well. Hopefully I can find that a post it eventually, too. I’ve had about 50 tapes left from the 100+ shows of the series and only recently finally got some of them converted and posted to YouTube. At any rate, Rodger and Annie went back to Kentucky and just over a week later Rodger died in a car wreck on his way to work one morning. I understood why we seemed to always end up talking about the veil then. It was prep work.

Of course, in classic style he came to me a few days later as I entered my home. I got an intense feeling that I needed to lay down, like I was suddenly overwhelmed with fatigue. No sooner did I get prone than his face appeared in my vision (eyes closed) and I heard him say, “Hey, got something to show you.” For the next few minutes my vision was filled with video vignettes from the other side, offering further confirmation to our discussions and some tasty tidbits of information that answered some of my further questions about consciousness in general. You’ll find those peppered throughout my books. Just google’- ‘Zen Benefiel, author’ and you’ll find them. Or just look over at the sidebar.

I’ll be sharing another show soon, with comments about our discussion and future discoveries. All of these shows were recorded at the Glendale Public Access Studio, owned by Dimension Cable Services, from May of 1990 to August of 1922. I’m so grateful for the dedication of the volunteer crew and all the guests who participated. We were pioneers in the field at the time. Maybe someday I’ll have an opportunity to revisit the theme.

A New World Order?

DataNeverSleepsWe face a time where many things are changing, including our world. We need to move forward, but how? Are our values, morals and ethics enough? Reports from the other side* seem to reveal a paradox in that we carry our own judgments, otherwise they do not exist. Yet, the fact that I used the term New World Order caused a response within you and more than likely toward the suspicious rather than friendly and open.

Our thoughts and actions determine our reality, as one might extrapolate based on new thought and quantum theory. Imagine that there is no ultimate Judge, only our own record of behavior weighed with the internal gauge of our own perception. We’re not always clear and conscious as we navigate the ocean of emotion. The spiritual sagas relate stories of the Light and the Void, yet we often miss they are one within us – our internal barometer of balance and harmony.

What if the sensations are the same in the Void as in the Light? What if there is a sense of total individuality and total inclusion in the Oneness, the yin/yang of the life cycle in consciousness? Could this be what the ‘end of time’ is? Are we moving toward a unified field theory that plays out as movement toward pragmatic ends? Is it possible these polarities within us are learning to play instead of fight? How can we help?

Perhaps we’re all just data flowing down some etheric glass tube or something. Our lives are certainly becoming data-driven by the Giver of Data. According to the stats, nary one-third of the population is active. We know it operates on light pulses. What we forget is that we do to, so its possible for data streams to intermingle. I wonder what might happen? We’d certainly need to suspend our belief system in order to process the data without bias.

The only judgments made in the realms of consciousness are our own. Near-Death experiencers validate that point ubiquitously. What a paradox in the face of the fear, guilt and shame game! What if we were able to carry that feeling of connectedness (reported by NDE and Spiritually Transformative Experiencers) with us, knowing it is what we will find at our next transition anyway? Seems we got that advice a couple thousand years ago and very few listened then. We’re seeing scientific leanings toward the same in quantum realms.

Is this our challenge: to move from duality to Oneness in our own consciousness? What a challenge for humans! Our minds are binary processors, so that can be a real challenge. It can also be a great opportunity. Are we more than just humans? Are we alien to our own design? Or do we just not understand what being human really means? We certainly sense the deep connection with loved ones and in compassionate activities. Is this natural? Are we truly spiritual beings having a human experience?

Does a child not grow up to become an adult with the capacity to become a parent? What is a self-actualized human being? Could we be confusing crawl-ins, stand-ins and walk-ins because we have no frame of reference and still cannot claim our own growth toward magnificence? We are taught to cower (respect) in the presence of authority and not question directly. Do we not question the significance of reality on a regular basis?

The natural resonance of what we have categorized as the various forms of love is obvious evidence that we have a deep-seated knowing that produces sensations when we violate our own values in living. Science explains it as harmonic or discordant frequencies, depending on the observable result. Observation is across a sensory array throughout our mind and body, like a transceiver, that we can only ‘read’ when we are quiet, silent and intentionally available.

Our ethics demonstrate how we weigh our knowing of this love with the maligned perception of fear, guilt or shame promoted by those who wish dominance because the grip of their own fear is so unshakeable. The latter is an example of discordant frequencies, they just don’t feel good at all. True happiness is unavailable in that state of being. We can see the falseness of safety and security in money and power.

A self-actualized human being, in my opinion, would have achieved awareness through primary personal portals into the fabric of consciousness, at least becoming proficient in creating constructive scenarios with people, places and things. In other words, going through the trials and tribulations to learn trust in yourself. One who achieves a connected state is able to excel in creating good will and execution of strategic plans to actualize personal or professional goals. They work and play well with others and even lead by example in their community.

Even those connected individuals realize that the challenge to remain connected is an ever-present moment. It’s a constant choice to stay in the precious present. Now what about those who have extraordinary connectivity to things beyond the normal scope of human experience? In other words, what about those who are open to the thoughts and feelings of others? Empathy is their gift, yet it can often extend into the collective consciousness, the ‘thoughtmosphere’ of the planet. How do they relate to a new living awareness? Apparently sensitivities are on the rise due to our planet’s increased vibratory rate as a bi-product of our movement through space. Imagine being plugged in to the cosmic computer with terabytes processing through you in each heart beart.

According to some sources, cosmic volunteers that become self-actualized human beings master experiential knowing and translate their wisdom into ‘righteous’ acts, promoting the good of the order and all. They are able to engage phenomena beyond our imagination and yet because of universal edicts, their lives are often hidden from public view. What if some of these paranormal possibilities began leaking through to the general public?

Humans tend to want spectacular sideshows anyway, and often get caught up in the phenomena to the point of missing the message. We might even begin to see a synergism of previously fragmented bits of knowledge that congeal into malleable frameworks of great import if we pay attention closely. A natural order exists, understood by mathematicians and scientists, that is being presented as a question of balance with inner and outer realities.

Across the Web and in our communities there are so many versions of how this group or that group is vying for position to lead the way to the New World Order, some as cabals and pundits and others as world servers and stewards. A point of perspection dances in the balance of the seer’s vision. What lens are we looking through? Can we have a broader view? Do we really need a view? Can we just choose to get along and move forward like we mean it? Harmony among people and planet would be a new world order.

Just the mention of the phrase ‘New World Order’ carries so many different ‘charges’ of emotional bindings that it is hard to find the ‘truth’ to it all. What were your thoughts when you read the phrase this time? Do you see how sensitized we can become from marginalized information and the projections of others? Still, change happens when polarities come out to play and the situation becomes uncomfortable to an extreme.

So I’ll leave you with this question: What would a new world order of harmony among people and planet look like, smell like, taste like, feel like, sound like and BE like?

Here’s a video from over 20 years ago that might provide some insight and inspiration for the future. It is the first show for One World, a series I created in the early 90s, outlining the concept and hopefuls for the show. Are we willing to incorporate the new and find harmony in the all?

Peace Day

BTDext-FB2On this International Day of Peace, may we celebrate our connectedness, our harmony and our unity with One Mind, One Planet and One People operating with the understanding that we are inextricably intertwined with each other and our planet, more so that our minds may be able to grasp at this time, yet our hearts know it to be true somehow.

The Great Mystery is unfolding, bringing science and spirituality into a unified field, allowing humanity to speak one language beyond the religious and superstitious which has kept us separate for millennia. Resistance to this process is futile and we need to help each other through it in whatever ways appear in front of us on a moment to moment basis.

All the great prophets, sages and sayings are worthless if we ignore our symbiosis, with each other and our beautiful blue domed home. It is called ‘The Work’ because it does take effort to step away from the old ways of separation in all their surreptitious subtlety. For all I Am and all I do, this I know: I love and am loved… and so are you.

I understand the ideological complications with such a notion. We can acknowledge what has been collectively assigned as ‘International Peace Day’ if nothing else than with our intent. Shifting our internal thoughtmosphere is the first step to making the without as the within. Indeed, it is an arduous journey full of trials and tribulations sometimes unimaginable by others, yet nonetheless manifesting in front of us.

My suggestion for experimentation and validation is that we each turn away from responding to the manifestations of what we believe are vexations of spirit and/or humanity. Instead, allow the attention to entertain what we wish to achieve that is beneficial to ourselves and others and lead by example. People follow and respond to energy, often unconsciously, and examples of a different sort tend to stand out in the crowd.

Sure, the rash of naysayers may be the first round of response. I’ve experienced that sharing my experiences and understanding for over 30 years, yet it hasn’t stopped me from continuing. Over time, the articulation and presentation has become more refined and heart-centered while still appealing to the intellect when presented as a logical flow of deduction and experience.

If, like many, you feel you are here for a purpose then it is quite possible that this purpose is aligned with a natural state of harmony among people and planet that is evolving and presenting possibilities to coagulate even as you read this now. It is my experience that the inner voice speaks in various tones, from sensations to actual words that are undeniable when one listens. It is an experience that many have, yet are afraid to acknowledge to others because of the societal predispositions to denying anything beyond their direct experience.

I had a discussion just yesterday with a young woman in that same situation, an electrical engineer by profession, that has ‘heard’ and ‘sensed’ things beyond this reality for years. She felt that if she spoke of it to other that she would be deemed as ‘crazy’ and coworkers, friends and relatives would vanish from her life. I, too, have had that experience since my teenage years (I’m 55 now) and I don’t see it ending anytime soon – but there are more people who are finding each other and sharing their experiences now.

Traditionally these people have been deemed ‘fringe’ or ‘metaphysical’ or ‘new age’ yet they don’t profess allegiance to any of those circles or groups. I never have, but others tend to label you according to their belief system or peer pressure. Rising out of that muck is the greatest challenge, to stand in one’s truth is the ultimate test of faith…. not any religious rhetoric. It spans all religions yet embraces them all simultaneously.

Now we are learning to move beyond belief systems and devote ourselves to experience systems; practical ways and means to achieve collaborative goals that unite people to serve together for everyone’s highest good – harmony among people and planet.

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.

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?

A New Living Awareness

rockinralfI’m no one special. I was adopted at 6 weeks and had a loving family and upbringing in the Midwest. I’m not sure why, but I’ve had many experiences outside the realms of most religious considerations and certainly outside the realms of psychology and psychiatry to date. I don’t expect the reader to believe anything I say, but test it for yourself as best you can.

Deep questions about my life and living prompted me to offer a prayer to my concept of ‘Creators’ as a teen, which at the time was pretty vast as I knew cosmic consciousness as not only a concept but a deep seated awareness and feeling. My prayer was about knowing truth and being willing to die to know it if necessary. I was in my first year of college, living in the honors dorm at BSU.

The following week I had come back from class, put on Journey’s first album and laid across my bed with my head propped up by the wall and my pillow. As I lay on the bed in silence of mind, just after the verse of a song I heard a voice in my head (I’d actually heard it since I was 6) that asked me if I was willing to die for what I believed in. After I got over the shock of the question I thought about what I believed in enough to die for… Christ or cosmic consciousness was my decision and “Yes” was my answer to the voice.

Instantly I felt a slight tug and was out of body, turning to look at my body lying across my bed and then turning back to look where I was going. I was immediately engulfed by White Light, embraced and surrounded in a feeling of being HOME, the ultimate home. I could think, so I knew I wasn’t ‘dead’ but all I could see was white and I had no tactile sensations. As an impetuous teenager, it got boring quickly and I asked, “Is there more?” There was, but it isn’t necessary to go into here now.

After a brief instructional period I felt a rush of energy and was back in my body taking a deep breath as though I’d been without air for some time. The actual time was about 2 minutes. The experienced and information presented seemed much, much longer. It left an indelible imprint as you might imagine. I’ve made it my life’s mission to fulfill as well as understand, and maybe the two will eventually become one.

That was in 1975, when there was very little written and even fewer people to discuss this with openly. I was lucky my parents had me see a psychiatrist that had some awareness about metaphysics and spiritual awakenings. He advised me to keep my mouth shut because people would not understand me, let alone think I was anywhere close to being sane. Silence was not and is not one of my strong points.

So over the years I researched and studied awareness on deeper levels than most can imagine, let alone experience. I have an intimate awareness and experience of what is being presented as theories in quantum mechanics now, so it is absolutely refreshing to see science and spirituality begin to coagulate in similar understandings. However, because I speak from an awareness rather than theory in most cases, I include many descriptions of events that demonstrate the understanding.

Death is indeed a reality for some, because they believe in it so strongly and have never had cause to question its reality. Folks with trauma-initiated NDEs (near-death experiences) have some greater understanding of the continuation of consciousness beyond the physical body, but still have a tough time believing that one might be able to transcend physical reality with their body.

We hear of the ability to bi-locate and even teleportation, but is it a reality. I’ve had experiences of both, but only the bi-location have I been able to repeat. The teleportation happened as a result of an early morning need to go to the bathroom. It was friend’s home and pitch black at the time. I was conscious enough to open the door and begin to proceed to the bathroom that was on the other side of the house, a good hundred or so paces away with a couple of hallways and turns to negotiate.

I took two steps and ran into a wall where an opening to the living room had been when I went to bed. I felt around for a light switch, found one and flipped it on. I was standing in front of the bathroom door. I have no idea how to explain it, only that it happened. So things way beyond our comprehension at this time are possible and maybe even repeatable if we were able to clear our consciousness of the belief that they are not. My belief didn’t matter at the time… it happened.

Now the concept of death has become a nebulous thought in my life at best. I’ve had several friends and others that have been available for conversations after their passing out of the physical bodies as well. Granted, I don’t make a practice of talking with them a lot, but the opportunities do present themselves. I’ve finally found a woman that isn’t freaked out by the experiences I provide, just by being around me. I have a ‘dead council’ that I call together every few years just to check in with them about ‘progress’ here.

One of the more mischievous strafed her body as he came into the room and sat her up in bed with a hrmmmph, literally. She had been sound asleep and my ‘meetings’ are always done in silence to the naked ear. I asked her what happened and she described feeling like someone had just passed through her body, with no malice intent, but undoubtedly an entity capable of sitting her up. It was then that I told her what I was doing.

Now I also, oddly enough, have a personal testimony of Jesus Christ. He explained to me that there is no Devil, only our mind’s capacity to deceive and respond out of fear. However, you can imagine the grief I get when I share these things, or even hint at their possibility, in Christian environments. I’m so baffled that they will use a book to belittle a living experience of what they so animatedly profess to believe. It kind of reminds me of the oxymoron ‘military intelligence.’ I’ve been told I’m full of Satan and even had some well-intentioned folks show up at my home to tell my wife she needed to leave me as soon as possible. She did, and after many years of struggle she chose to divorce me with prejudice.

Now this was originally about the concept of ‘death’ so let me bring it back into the thread. Unless one has a direct experience of its non-existence it is quite a challenge to wrap your mind around the concept, let alone free your mind enough to move beyond the intellectual constraints of the belief systems that lock you up in it. However, there is a capacity for us to know things beyond this; to know a greater truth that engages choice and free will in a whole new spectrum of experience. I’ve been there my entire life… and very alone in the world.

Imagine if we shifted our consciousness, our focus and attention, onto life-friendly possibilities of connectedness and even harmony and unity among people as a result. Might this new living awareness evolve into a new world order?
