Jesus is Just Alright – Still

Jesus has always played a huge role in my life. I used to sit in Sunday school class as a child and wonder how I could be more like him and I assumed everyone else did too. As I grew up, I was challenged by the trials and tribulations of the spiritual path in the discovery of the precepts of Christ Consciousness or better, Cosmic Consciousness. I know you will be challenged by reading further, but please don’t pray for my salvation. I’m already saved. 🙂

As I understand it from my years of inquiry Jesus was a messenger of a new way and proceeded to be an example, not a Savior. In fact, he jesusearthtaught personal responsibility not abdication, claiming instead that each of us is god just as he was, the Dead Sea Scrolls revealed this statement to Thomas. After the Council of Nicea, organized religion became a business of bridging church and state (emperor Constantine’s credit), and a lot of good intentioned people have been deceived into the fear, guilt and shame game.

In contrast, when I’ve shared my experiences I’ve often been rejected by the very folks that speak of such possibilities. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had Christians tell I’m full of Satan or under the influence of the Devil. Instead of not answering the door when Jehovah’s Witnesses or Seventh Day Adventists are out proselytizing, I love to engage them in conversation. I’m saddened by the focus on a book and dead words when the living word resides in their hearts and they continue to ignore it.

We all have moments that encourage us to continue, especially when we experience doubt and pain. Jesus helped me to rise out of some serious pain just after a divorce and maybe this sharing can help you too. Often we have a tendency to stiff-arm experiences that are beyond our current level of understanding. The belief and faith in a living being that transcended death was given awareness and direct experience of its truth on this day.

Now how you will feel or sense the following might give you some indication of just how open you are to divinely inspired spiritual events. Many profess to believe or have faith, but when faced with something outside their experience and/or demonstrable proof of a living presence today – the first response is denial and rejection. It appears to engage cognitive dissonance. There is a great mystery still, understanding how ‘God’ interacts with creation and humans specifically. If we knew it all there wouldn’t be any mystery for us to seek.

Doubt and skepticism are strong motivators in seeking knowledge, truth and/or wisdom. I had my own reservations about sharing my experience, let alone engaging it in the first place. I have a brilliant mind and voracious appetite for experience and knowledge, yet it all has to make sense from various perspectives or truth is still challenged to emerge in the light. We have our shadows, doubts and fears that our beliefs aren’t perfect or need to be challenged to make them come alive. I had to confront a number of internal conflicts I didn’t even know I had, just to be available to the experience.

I was invited to attend a spiritual retreat with a group of folks at Woods Canyon Lake, a pristine lake at about 6500 ft. elevation on the Mogollon Rim a little south of the Grand Canyon. I was glad to join them not knowing what to expect, but definitely looked forward to the cooler weather. It was still in the high 80ss, but it was much better than the hundred and teens we left in Phoenix. There were nine of us enjoying a weekend spiritual retreat led by Ed Cox, an associate of Ray Stanford and founder of the Association for the Unfoldment in Man. It had been planned for months. I was asked to go just a week prior as I had taken up residency in the house the group used for their meetings.

We stopped in Christopher Creek to unload our gear at the cabins that had been rented. Woods Canyon Lake was a few miles on up the road and we reached it just after noon. We found an area that was rather secluded, just off the end of the parking lot next to the lake. The lake itself covers 158 acres, so there is plenty of shoreline and secluded areas for privacy. We found an area with a fallen tree that was nearly 3 feet in diameter, a great bench looking over the water. The stump was clean and flat from the cut of the saw several years prior. We all sat down here.

The facilitator, Ed Cox (now on the other side), sat on a stump and the rest of the group (except me) was on the tree trunk which parallel to the shore of the lake. The group was able to look out at the lake from their positions. I sat cross-legged on a rock at the end of the log facing the facilitator with my back nearly to the lake (pic to right). There was a small inlet to my right that offered a view of the lake. There was a breeze wafting the smell of pine around as we enjoyed the cool mountain air in stark contrast to the heat of the Phoenix Valley. Being in this natural environment was really soothing.

woodscanyonzAs we got comfortable and began to engage our purpose for being there, Ed asked us to ‘act as if’ Jesus was in our presence. Interesting tactic, eh? I got excited instantly, feeling like He was always around whenever our thoughts ventured His way. However, inner turmoil surfaced immediately in most of the rest of the group. I could see it through their facial expressions. The silence was deafening for a bit. Several asked Ed how to speak to Him. I was amazed, dumbfounded and a bit shocked that none of the folks could bring themselves to a point of verbalization, let alone welcome Him into the surroundings. I sat there for a while just wondering how something this special could create such a chasm in one’s world.

I’m not one to wait for long, so after a few moments I could no longer hold back and blurted out, “Try this…. HEY DUDE, GLAD TO HAVE YOU HERE! LET’S PARTY!” Obviously a little over the top and, well, Ed didn’t care too much for it either. He grumbled a moment and I could tell he was a bit saddened that the ‘experiment’ didn’t produce better results. After a few moments of silence he suggested we prepare to do a guided meditation. He asked us to just close our eyes and take a few deep breaths to center and relax. It was so easy to just breathe and relax, allowing the quietness of the woods to envelope my senses. I had no idea what was about to happen.

I closed my eyes, took my first breath and instantly a vision unfolded. I was looking downward and saw two well-tanned hands come around from behind me at the level of my solar plexus. I felt like I could have touched them, they seemed so real. One held a piece of dark bread; the other grasped and ‘broke’ it. Before I had a chance to question the scene, instantly a brilliant light shone from above and just in front of me. With my eyes closed still, I looked up to see Jesus just meters away, a few meters off the ground. Every molecule in my being knew it was Him.

It seemed like time stood still as I observed Him. Before I could think to ask any questions two rays of light came from his forehead and heart, joining in front of me and bathing me in an iridescent and effervescent feeling that went to the depths of my soul. I would have been quite satisfied with just having that experience alone. I cannot describe how transcendent if felt, totally embraced by a loving sensation beyond anything I’d felt – except when I entered the Light as a teenager.

In the next moment He began speaking to me directly. “I would like to speak through you,” He said. Immediately the mental battle began to try and deny the experience because I was ‘unworthy.’ My mind echoed the words of my adoptive mother, a month prior, warning me about ‘channeling.’ Here was the ultimate connection, right in front of me. What could I do? How could I be sure? Everything in my being was telling me this was real beyond any doubt, yet I was overcome with it [doubt].

I broke down and cried like never before… feeling all the pain I had suffered from adoption, betrayal and divorce welling up from inside that cache of unhealed emotions we carry throughout our lives. I had never felt that depth of crying, like I was purging the very depths of my suffering. It was excruciating as my gut wrenched in this sensation. Then, as if by magic I felt it release. I chose to let go of my doubt and fear, sensing that this was one of the most important moments of my life and I better be fully present to experience it. I simply ‘had’ to let go of whatever was holding me back no matter what, as if my life depended on it.

After a few more sobs I took a few deep breaths and relaxed, opened my mouth and simply let go. It felt so weird, like I was leaping off a cliff not knowing I could fly. “Know that I AM with you always,” were the first words out of my mouth. Whew, that felt so great to hear. After a pause Jesus/I continued, “This one’s fear is great (I felt he was speaking of me).” I took issue, began to question him and felt a pleasant whoosh as we left the current scene and went to a place where He and I talked for a while, free of the rest of the group. I was still delivering a message, but didn’t need to be there to hear it evidently. I think quantum science guys would call this ‘non-local’ awareness or consciousness.

I was totally unaware of my body as we talked. This may sound really odd, but he told me our fears were the same – of not fulfilling our Divine Mission. That is why my fear was great. I was his brother, from the same Creators. I was dumbfounded and knew this was news I could not share with anyone – especially after seeing the group behavior in a secluded environment away from judgment or persecution. It was amazing at how fast my mind was taking all this in. As if he were inside my head and a very real part of me. As soon as I became aware I was thinking about my mind and its perturbations, he chimed in with an explanation of his own battle – what we’ve chronicled as a 40-day and night battle with Satan.

First, He told me that my understanding of where the name [Satan] came from was correct, the Greek ‘thetan’ – meaning ‘thinker.’ I found that out years ago when I was researching Biblical references and their Aramaic, Greek and Hebrew roots. It sounded so easily manipulated into the current name that no one challenged the change. Of course in Constantine’s time any questions were met with swift annihilation. Humans were steeped in ‘duality’ from superstitions developed about day and night long ago. They [superstitions] were carried forward in the consciousness of mankind and used by those who wanted to have dominance over populations. He knew he had to address those and found himself in the desert, battling his own thoughts about ‘common knowledge’ and the ‘truth.’ He relayed that there is no ‘devil’ except in the minds of humanity.

He showed me some video vignettes (as best as I can describe) that highlighted some of the stories that we’ve been led to misunderstand throughout history. He confirmed much of what I’d questioned based on my own discovery after entering the Light and returning myself. I felt like I was on fire inside, like I was being consumed by this data dump of divinity. He showed me a few scenes about my own life as well, where I had trusted my gut in differing from the common knowledge, no matter how I was viewed as a result. He noted I had kept true to myself even at the risk of rejection. He went on to share examples of letting go and trusting in All That Is, feeling the LOVE, the limitless oscillating vibrational energy, all around us. Love frees the mind to join with the heart as ONE. So simple, yet so profoundly challenging.

So my experience was an internal conversation with Jesus, smattered with videolaughingjesusbyjeremiahbackground (we can also call them ‘visions’), about some very important issues to me: authentic deep conversations and fear of failing ‘my mission’ here on Earth primarily. Jesus shared that our fears were the same and that to anchor in the feeling of LOVE, limitless oscillating vibrational energy, fends off all fear. I simply needed to ‘let go’ and trust…just trust and allow. I saw several examples during the process; short ‘visions’ of how things had already done so. It took me back to the ‘white light’ experience I had as a teenager, bouncing back and forth in my consciousness in this present moment. There was a sense of completion and I paused in my thoughts.

Next thing I knew, I was aware there were branches snapping and I was hearing the sounds of my immediate environment in the woods once again. I didn’t know where I had been, but I was definitely returning from somewhere else. I sat with eyes closed for a moment longer, absorbing all that just happened with the utmost humility and reverence. I opened my eyes to see the others staring at me with gaping mouths. I looked over to see a couple of hikers coming our way, which is where the sound of breaking branches no doubt came. I don’t know what was said to this day. I know what I experienced and heard. Others said they saw him as he first appeared and ‘shined the light’ on me, too. Wow, what a trip…

I didn’t have the desire to speak for several hours afterward. When asked a question or someone tried to engage me, all I could do was utter a ‘mmmmmmm’ sound as I was still feeling the feeling of total love and union. The meditation produced very profound things, bringing us all to a new understanding of what Jesus meant by, “Know that I Am with you always.” Indeed, He took me by the hand and led me toward the promised land. I am so blessed to have had that experience and to feel the presence of knowledge and wisdom beyond our human frailties.

The prevailing feeling was that Jesus was REALLY THERE! The entire group sensed His presence and some even swore they saw Him. Imagine what it would be like to have that opportunity? We do. We have it every moment that we choose to focus our attention on our Elder Brother. From what I gathered, He had a similar discourse with the group regarding the ability we each have of letting go of our doubts and fears. He did make a distinction that religion has no hold on truth. Every human being has the potential of rising into conscious communion with the Divine. There is no ‘saving’ of an individual or human race by his sacrifice. We each are responsible for our actions and accountable to All That Is for our choices.

What I got from the experience was a sense of utter surrender to All That Is, to God, to the Cosmos, to that limitless oscillating vibrational energy which we all are now, have always been and will continue to be. That feeling of connection to everything as ‘love’ is so very challenging to articulate, so we usually just bliss out. In our daily walk we have to balance the bliss with the checkbook, kids, school, spouse and work usually. It is often a challenge to leave our worries behind. I am still challenged daily to live in the faith and trust that each step can be defined from within the Kingdom. I am no one special, but it is my opinion that we, as a human race, need to move beyond the stranglehold our religious leaders have upon us now. We need to put the books down and raise our eyes to meet one another as relatives on Earth as one family.

Paul wrote about the “peace that surpasseth understanding.” “Shanti” is the ancient Sanskrit word for the “Peace which surpasseth understanding.” Imagine having it all the time. Jesus message, for me, was that it is available all the time as “I Am with you always.” I must make it clear that He was not about professing that ‘Christianity’ was somehow above the other religions. Quite the contrary. Religion has served to separate mankind. It is NOT what consciousness, albeit cosmic, brings to our awareness. Indeed, there is ONE Creation, but no one religion presents that we are all part of God – everyone.

The only thing that keeps us separate is our beliefs, which are false in that regard. Anything or anyone that professes that separation is any part of God whatsoever is a False Prophet. We are One People on One Planet… period. Jesus and all those like him, of which there have been many, have attempted to get this point across to humanity from an inner perspective… the WORD is written in our hearts. We choose to allow others control and dominance over our lives… and we have been choosing in error.

GOD ParticipleThe BEAST is our MIND… Our bodies are all carbon-based (6 protons, 6 neutrons and 6 electrons) so materially, physically – we are all the same! “It is a number of knowledge and wisdom (science). Let he who hath understanding interpret the number. It is the number of man. That number being 666.” You can argue the point all you want. If you consider the concept of ‘we are all sons and daughters’ then from a perspective of ONEness, one creation if you will, it just makes sense that this kind of obvious simplicity is hidden in our very biological nature.

It is not surprising that the information I’ve garnered from contactee experiences throughout my life echoes the very same notions that Jesus presented to me that day. We are all relatives, a part of the Earth Family, and able to rise in our consciousness to the knowledge, wisdom and , above all, experience of our connection with All That Is. The ‘new’ living awareness will lead us toward a new world order of harmony among people and planet in our lifetime.

In response to the confusion of transparency and the notion that the world is ‘just that way’ in how it seems to devalue others… I hear what you’re saying and let’s not get real or be honest is what it seems you are trying to convince yourself is okay. Let’s hide and not be free to be trusting or vulnerable with who we are and not care what others think.

It doesn’t mean you blurt it out without provocation. It does mean that when you are asked a question that you reveal without fear of reprisal or restriction. It means that when you feel the subtle movement to speak that you do, but not from a place that is marginalized. That’s a mental construct that constricts the ability of heart-centered communication to be fully present in any situation.

Perhaps the ridiculous and naive is closer to innocence and naivety as a present action thatZen-IANDS allows the refreshing and unexpected to happen. It cannot happen when you hold back for fear of whatever excuses you might think is appropriate in the moment. I understand that the world often operates differently, but if we don’t the world won’t change. We are the change. It’s risky business… “People are dumb, panicky, dangerous animals and you know it.”

In reality, I live this… or at least the best I can. It hasn’t been easy by any stretch of the imagination. It’s been worth every challenge and change, every moment of confronting fears and transcending to some new level of awareness. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, yet I wouldn’t change it for the world. It’s how we change the world… we risk letting go and engage deeper levels of faith, love and trust. 🙂

Attitude of Gratitude

attitudeAttitude of Gratitude

During this season we are particularly attuned to the attitude of gratitude toward the people, places and things in our lives. We set aside our thoughts and feelings of what is wrong with our lives and the world for just a moment in time. It allows us to invite a spirit of family and togetherness beyond our normal daily routines.

In my coaching practice I encounter a consistent mindset that focuses on what is not wanted. Folks are dismayed by the events and people in their lives that seem to reflect these undesirable situations on a continual basis.

We often shift this focus, through mindful practice, to that of an attitude of gratitude for those desirable situations that are always present, too.

What does that do for the beneficial evolution of one’s life and/or perspective?

Consider the notions presented by much of the material over the last decade or so regarding the nature of how we attract what we think and feel strongly. Some refer to this as the Law of Attraction, but the concept and philosophy has been around for centuries under different labels. Just take a moment and reflect, if you would, on how your life has been very different when you experience situations that edify your humanity, your good will and those who example that toward and with you and others.

What did you discover?

Your world of personal and professional relationships is full of desirable and undesirable situations, right? If you could determine a ratio of desirable to undesirable situations, what might it be? Are you satisfied with that? Is it possible to change that ration for the better? Do you want to? When?

Imagine the results of changing your perception just slightly. It’s hard to shift your emotions, how you feel, when the situations have emotional triggers that take you out of the sense of continuity or flow, right? Sometimes we have moments of just observing the situation for what it is, completely removed from our personal emotional state and/or view of the reasons for it happening. That is a very powerful position and full of possibility. Possibility of what?, you might ask.

We can grow in compassion and understanding when we are able to disengage our own emotions and our attachment to the outcome of the situation. It is what it is and it will resolve according to the emotions and perceptions of those in it. Does that make sense? We’ve heard about the notion that when you change your view, your perception, the world changes automatically.

Imagine what an attitude of gratitude for the challenges we face can do for changing perspectives. It frees us from the emotional turmoil often associated with undesirable results. It also allows us to refocus on desirable outcomes and work toward them instead. A lack of communication is often the culprit as well.

Too often we engage situations with unspoken and unfulfilled expectations that affect our internal engine, so to speak. Instead of running efficiently we choke and sputter because our supply of fuel is diminished. So it is with communication. We are often hindered by our fear of rejection or resistance, so we remain quiet and then walk away feeling emotionally damaged. How does that help?

One simple thing can make all the difference in the world. It may feel scary at worst, but at least uncomfortable, yet we simply must open our mouths and say what is on our mind and/or heart. It might stir others and cause a disruption in the perceived flow of the situation, but the result will take the outcome to a new height in relation-ship building. In effect, you’ve just created another level of transparency.

What happens when people know more about each other and the situation at hand? Can they deal with it more effectively? Does it offer opportunity for achievement beyond the previous constraints? I would venture to say that, in nearly all situations, there is a sense of gratitude that things were spoken that everyone was feeling but no one was willing to offer for discussion.

So, in conclusion I would like to offer and even suggest that when you feel tension in a situation rather than allow it to continue, you might engage an attitude of gratitude for the opportunity to help make things better for everyone. Beyond the resistance or turmoil it may create, temporarily, you’ll garner a deeper respect for yourself and from others. Remember.. Your attitude determines your altitude.

Thanks for letting me in today. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Consideration Evokes Criticism

Globcal-FB pageConsideration evokes criticism and presents an interesting conundrum in the online social venue. I’d like to reflect on some real-time events that have caused a pause for further contemplation. I’ve been working with a very progressive group of folks who are leaping forward in regard to global citizenship.

The ramrod of the group has been at this since the mid-90s when he ran an organization that gave away over 10 million trees only to be shut down by National Arbor Day Foundation for trade name infringement because he was using ‘ArborDay.com’ as a website domain in conjunction with Ecology Crossroads Foundation.

His story is a matter of public record. He moved to Venezuela shortly after allowing the foundation to go into administrative dissolution. We recently reinstated the organization as of Earth Day, 2014, and are preparing to move into the 21st century with a bit more wisdom, but still with a mission of harmony of people and planet.. man and environment. Creating sustainable living ecosystems, on micro and macro levels, allow our planetary civilization to continue to grow and prosper. We have to change the way business as usual is being done.

There is a larger concern involved now that is obvious with the global warming concerns. The critical need for creating collaborative networks that can support their members is indeed the next order of business. Wall Street is dead, but it’s on life support for a while and very few have realized it to date. Our economy is supported by what is known as ‘free issuance‘ which means we all agree on the value of currency even though there is nothing to support the value. The push for digital currency is on as a result. Bitcoin saw it coming.

Globcal International Cooperative is a relatively new organization that is picking the ball up by engaging goodwill ambassadors in a collaboration within the Cooperative business structure. There has been thousands of hours put into its development and due to its self-initiating nature the attrition rate has been rather high. An organization of this kind takes years to develop and the digital world has made it available. However, human nature has not changed much at all. We’re impatient and lazy.

The organization has developed group profiles of ambassadors across nearly a dozen social platforms. There are ways to qualify as a ‘verified’ entity in many of these domains, but certain requirements must be met before this happens. It really ties in well to the movement toward ‘perfect citizenship’ on the Internet that is being formulated by various governments. We do need ‘good’ citizenship on the Net. Globcal is taking that to a new level with the programs it will be engaging.

That being said, I was sending out a nice notice to those who were questionable only because of their business or alter-ego screen name that Facebook isn’t fond of when scanning profile connections of members of the organization. I personally think that is a reasonable request, especially if they [FB] are going to put their stamp of approval on verifying an organization as a legitimate entity in the FB domain. The notice I crafted simply stated, I thought, the reasons for my actions. I didn’t have to tell them a thing, but I thought friends deserved to know as a matter of communication in transparency.

So here is what I sent to those folks:

The Globcal Ambassadors are being ‘verified’ by Facebook in order to get their ‘checkmark’ of legitimacy so we can openly work with organizations as a ‘trusted’ group on Facebook. Ambassadors cannot be ‘friends’ with alter egos or fictitious profiles in any way. Businesses as profiles also are included as well as multiple profiles of the same person. We are required to demonstrate our real identity in order to meet their standards for ‘verification.’

I want to continue with the collaborative efforts and my growing responsibilities as Ambassador Zen Benefiel in association with this organization. So I’m in process of ‘unfriending’ those who, although I may enjoy an association now, are not in compliance with what is necessary to qualify my profile for inclusion in the ‘verifcation’ process with the Facebook Authorities.

I want to continue to play nice. Nothing personal, just have to adhere to the rules for taking our activity to the next level of accountable and responsible global citizenry. Thanks for understanding. This is NOT about any kind of FB police or denying your ability to make any kind of profile you want. It’s about creating harmony in the ability to perform collaboratively.

I will continue to ‘follow’ (unless your ‘follow’ feature is turned off) those ‘unfriended’ and remain connected in that way. This will be an interesting process I’m sure. Perhaps you might consider creating a real profile being prudent for participation in the transparency? I’d love to ‘friend’ you…

Check out http://globcal.net/ for more…

I find it really telling of humankind when I get angry and resentful responses from those with the most flowery or ‘spiritual’ screen names. They feel violated somehow, but refuse to admit their assumed names are simply that and have no intrinsic value in the current economic structure. We haven’t created a new one yet, but they present the notion that this somehow violates their sovereign nature.

Perhaps this is an ego check in disguise. What mask are you wearing now? Maybe there is call for a culling in your friends list, too?

I was surprised that those who ‘should’ see the value in this collaboration do not and rather than playing with simple rules to establish the foundation for developing healthy online relationships across the world, they act like spoiled brats. It is very telling of their character and need for transformation toward meeting their own belief system notions, imho. I’ve had to look at all this within me as well. I think I’m okay, but I’m sure I have my moments.

I really had no idea that such responses would be evoked. What I had hoped for was a recognition and understanding that, yes, it is appropriate to create a certain standard of behavior and display for taking online activity to the next level publicly. Private organizations have their structures and tight controls in some cases. Public personas ought to have a willingness to be part of something greater and acquiesce to those standards as they are, at least until better or different standards are achieved. Humans tend to act arbitrarily without checking potential fallout.

The fact is that we (humanity) need to learn to work together and oftentimes that begins by following some very simple rules of behavior that benefit everyone. It’s simplicity and transparency is sublime and yet seems to trigger the very ones who say they promote harmony… Where else do you find this kind of behavior? Perhaps in your company or organization?

People are who they are and when ego-centered disruptive behavior arises, it is often very counterproductive. They are a victim of cognitive dissonance and look for blame toward others rather than looking within at the source of the problem and changing their point of view. It is a simple choice, apparently.

So what’s in a name? Perhaps this is what is meant by ‘loosing yourself in order to find yourself’ Collaboration in submission toward simplicity. Honestly, what is the harm in that? Nothing is lost and no freedoms are given up. In fact much more freedom is gained because the shared responsibility allows further creative aspirations to play out. Play nice. Be fair. Have fun!

What do you think about Global Citizenship? Are we still premature to be thinking about the notion?

What are your thoughts on the validation or verification process… the ‘perfect citizen’ on the Net?

 

Fear and Loathing in the New Age

Hermetic-PentDarkness has really gotten a bad rap over the eons.

In fact, when one enters the void there is a darkness full of possibility; a sense of being connected to everything in the nothingness. As one passes through the light (often referred to as the point of light within) into the physical world, the possibility of fulfilling purpose garnered from the formless becoming form is birthed.

So it is with cosmic consciousness manifesting in and through our bodies as they are perfectly designed to be the vessel; the Bodhisattva, the Christ, the human in which God dwells becomes aware of the ONE. The within and the without merge as this marriage of heaven and earth takes place in our lives. The first step begins in the darkness and unknown… Fear and loathing in the New Age has no place.

So many are in this place of jumping off now, and many more will join in since we passed by 12/21 without incident. A new galactic year has begun, launching us into yet another unknown cycle of births and deaths. How will we embrace the unknown? How will we look at our own ignorance and superstition? How will we truly love one another? Will we continue on the same destructive path or have an upwising?

The only judgments made in the ‘light’ or any realm of consciousness are our own. What a paradox in the face of the fear, guilt and shame game! We all seem to know it’s all about feeling connected, at peace and in love. What if we were able to carry that feeling with us, knowing it is what we will find at our next transition anyway? Is a transition inevitable? What if we had a choice?

Is this our challenge: to move from duality to Oneness in our own consciousness? Is this not also the challenge of modern Christianity and others? There is a faction within the Christian realm that profess the living Christ, yet condemn any modern understanding outside the text of the Bible. What a challenge for humans! Are we more than just humans? 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?

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? 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.

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. It’s also demonstrated by how we behave in light of our words. Most of us don’t realize just how transparent we are and how much attention others pay to the ‘delta’ between words and action. Words are cheap. Action is priceless.

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. 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. It’s also a path wrought with trials and tribulations like no other, excruciatingly painful when one has to let go of another who chooses to remain in destructive patterns.

Even those connected individuals realize that the challenge to remain connected is an ever-present moment. Now what about those who have extraordinary connectivity to things beyond the normal scope of human experience? How do they relate to a new living awareness? Apparently shifting consciousness is on the rise due to our planet’s increased vibratory rate as a bi-product of our movement through space. It’s a new kind of quantum entanglement… spooky action at a distance arriving in your neighborhood soon.

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. Attempts by others to use this awareness for selfish gain find that it just doesn’t work. Those who demand proof are rarely attentive enough to see it.

Humans tend to want spectacular sideshows and 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. There is often too much psychic disturbance, too much mental chatter about nothing important, that keeps the affects of spontaneous moments from having a lasting effect.

We have a plethora of literature and accounts of the ascent in consciousness to query on our journey. Too often, though, we tend to get stuck in one path or religion and fail to grok the importance of them all. No one religion has the market on truth. It is possible that a view of them all might provide necessary clues as to their unity. What if we turned our attention to those things that truly matter to us all?

an afterthought…We must honor those who risk their lives to stand up for making sense common. Money and power have ruled many countries silently for centuries. Now the populations are to the point where the house divided simply cannot stand any longer.

The activity seems absolutely insane, yet absolutely necessary in order to shift the balance of power back to the people who deserve. It will take time and for those who are not in the midst of the action, like myself, I can only encourage the peaceful revolution to continue. Wars do no determine who is right, only who is left.

No doubt the insecurities and over-reaction of the police is a result of co-dependence – of acting like they think some authority wants them to act. Alas, the conversations come slowly as hearts are changed; opened to the truth of the inhumanity of brother against brother. It is a time in our making of history for ‘planetary citizens’ to step up and continue to demonstrate the need for our society to evolve beyond the control and domination of those who fear its loss.

It would seem there is a wave of discontent flowing around the planet now. Many knew it was coming. May the natural order of love for one another resume its process and provide ways for quick resolve with the least chaos and destruction as possible.

A Newly Ordered World?

eye13A Newly Ordered World

When looking at local, national and planetary systems we need (imho) to keep in mind they are, hopefully, designed to serve people in life-friendly if not life-enriching ways. If they aren’t, we might want to rethink and retool for better management of resources. In a most simple and sublime way, the three cornerstones of our elemental make-up, the proton, neutron and electron hold the key to our unity.

We are experiencing the results of the ignorance of conscientiousness. We can no longer deny our connection to each other and behave accordingly. Suffering is a reality in the lives of many, but how does it reflect on the rest of us?

In truth, suffering is a choice. We can change our perspective easily, rising from the ashes of to be reborn again. It isn’t just a figure of speech, either, its a real-life experience for a growing number of people hit by the shift in the employment coupled with the financial crisis today. Many are re-creating their lives in greater alignment with their personal passions of making a better world in some way.

Some choose to not make a choice and allow the lesser self, the little mind, to rule their hearts. It is a viewpoint and easily shifted when supported by the demonstration of others. We all need to support each other in our dreams and goals. There is a lot of work to do.

I think the best place to start is by asking what people need, maybe confirming what we believe we know…or not. People generally have the same needs and only vary in their desires or wants. Then take what we (think) we know and ask or discover the better questions necessary to lead us to what we need to know.

Lao Tzu said it best, “To lead the people walk behind them.” From this perspective we can learn much and guide our evolution as a society with greater efficacy. Too often we rely on what we believe and know, but forget that neither nor both cover the extent of possibilities. I think there was a gentleman who once said that fixing things with the same tools that built them is folly, or something like that.

Taking a fresh look may serve the process better. Innocence and naivety creates possibility. Simple questions become powerful tools. Too often we ask questions regarding the complexity of situations and forgo the obvious, more simple approach that offers better answers and clearer direction. The status quo may be disrupted with such questions and that could be dangerous. People might suffer.

Understanding the significance of suffering is one thing, but to grasp even a fraction of what a greater intelligence might want us to understand about ‘long-suffering’ could take us to a leading edge vantage point. To reach any goal requires careful planning, patience and persistence as one or many face the challenges of the usual bumps in the road.

What else might we need to know that is beyond our belief or knowledge? Every question has an answer. Are we asking the right ones that lead us toward harmony and understanding? Do we need to develop a new set of questions, since the ones we been asking don’t seem to be leading us in the right direction.

Even the most skeptical of scientists, theologians and world servers know there is more than what they know to be true. Others, thanks to near death experiences, have opened the door to bridge the worlds of matter and spirit. Let yourself go for a moment and perceive what a new ordered world might look like with the point of view anchored in One rather than two, love rather than good and evil. This is the evolution of consciousness at play in the minds and hearts of humanity today.

2013 – A New Paradigm?

ncnicon3-sThis was a blank post for a couple of days, just to make a point. The future is completely malleable, a blank canvas if you will. I’ve got to thank Fleming Funch for the graphic and his development of one of the first community-oriented websites back in the early 00s, NewCiv.org. So, what kind of new paradigm do you/we want for 2013? Do we even want one? If we did, what would it include and/or eliminate?

For me, I’ve not been able to decide what I want to be when I grow up, or that I want to grow up at all. At 55 you’d think I would have everything in line and be well on my way to retirement. In today’s world I’m not sure retirement is even an option. However, what has been a driving force in my quiet moments is the passion for purpose and the fulfillment of a vision I was given so many years ago, nearly 40 now.

The vision wasn’t full of scenery, the kind of rapid fire visuals that accompany the unfolding of a contemporary experience you might read about from others who have seen the future and are reporting back. Instead, it was empty of preconception or prognostication. The vision was simply full of potential with only the points of light (I understood them as points of consciousness) gathered to work together to assist in the development of a new world order.

Now a ‘new world order’ has connotations that don’t necessarily make it a good thing these days. It smacks of the Orwellian style of global village where control and dominance of some less-than-helpful regime ultimately takes advantage of everyone and everything in order to benefit a few. I really think we have that already and maybe you do as well. Does that mean that we are stuck with it? I think not.

Last year’s arrival of the Occupy Movement demonstrated that there is a level of discontent and support for change, acknowledging that how things are now isn’t working. It doesn’t take a diligent researcher or scientist to recognize that we have some huge problems lurking with an elephant in the middle of the room. Actions being taken by some are counter-intuitive and lack the common sense that seems so obvious to those who have little attachment to the outcome of the current agenda – whatever that is.

Whatever the agenda is, it appears to completely disregard the one element that could unite us all – learning how to get along. Instead the focus has been how to get around, over, through and (your choice of preposition) what has to be considered in order for us to move forward as a planetary civilization. We use the thinking and the tools that created the problems and expect solutions to emerge as if by magic.

It appears we are lacking the initiative to call a halt to our methodologies that only continue to exacerbate and masturbate. Our belief systems operate on control whether it is people, places or things. Military, political, religious and social architecture have become so rigid with the the idea that there is always an enemy that we have forgotten how to be friends, lovers and neighbors who look out for each other not with aggression or weapons, but with love and service.

In the US, supposedly a nation with Christian values, we ignore the basic tenets of Christ’s teaching regularly. I’m not a ‘Christian’ per se, but Christ’s teachings rank with all the great masters from all the religions who basically say the same thing… love one another. We forget that if we feed our perceived ‘enemy’ then the likelihood of them remaining an ‘enemy’ is less. Most often the meal conversations evolve toward some kind of unity and similarity and, God forbid, we might get to know each other and see how similar we really are instead.

This is the thing about changing our paradigm to one that makes sense common, brings out our humanity and renders harmless the ill-will of those who are afraid of losing what they’ve gained. I would offer that we can engage a new living awareness that has nothing to do with any current or old belief system, but we have a real challenge in helping others – cohorts, friends, neighbors, etc, – to simply change their thinking for a little while, try on a new hat or pair of glasses and see the world with new eyes.

We just passed yet another possibility for total annihilation that, yet again, many thought was going to happen because they didn’t bother to do the research and understand what the indigenous cultures who created the calendars intended for the human race to understand, or even if they did. In reality, their intention and projection (if one can call it that) was for a new consciousness to evolve throughout humanity – one of harmony among people and planet – as a result of the progression of time. To me that seems like the natural progression for a planetary civilization to make and to hold as a goal for their sustainability to say the least.

Recent scientific discoveries show that there has been activity going on along the Milky Way for much longer than we might have suspected. The image to the left is from Fermi, a NASA telescope that was launched in 2008. Obviously it has traveled a long way already to give us this kind of astounding imagery. Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) have been happening for some time as well. We don’t have enough historical data to predict or even know the patterns of activity over the course of Earth’s history, so any projections would be speculative at best.

Speaking of speculations… the subtle energy baths, bubbles, particles and waves (for you quantum viewers) create a mixture of sensory opportunity. Some feel that on this playing field our inner sensory array, beknownst or unbeknownst to us, receives these cosmic messages and translates them into subtle impressions and movements of data within our BEing.

The data retrieval and optimization of our inner software seems to depend on how well we ask questions and listen in the silence for our ‘downloads’ to present a multi-sensory display – usually some warm fuzzies [sensations] and a video snippet [eyes open or closed doesn’t always matter] that accompanies the ‘realization’ in the moment. It may happen slightly differently for each individual, but the general theme is consistent. Too often we are unable to articulate these events well enough to share.

Multidimensional consciousness, however misunderstood, does include the potential for non-linear or even what is being called quantum entanglement experiences. Now this might sound too scientific, but on a practical level it is an attempt to explain how the various aspects of this multidimensional experience happen, like synchronicity for instance. We all have those experiences, but we don’t necessarily know how they occur. Translating a non-linear experience into a linear framework is touchy at best.

Obviously some kind of ‘energy’ or data has to interact in the matrix of consciousness, the thoughtmosphere, in order for actions to take place and results to be experienced. We find that this seems to happen more consistently with those who have an expanded awareness. This increased awareness also coincides with a general sense of the advancement of consciousness, the real movement toward a new world order of harmony among people and planet.

We can observe this on yet another level of scientific order, which I think fits perfectly into our advancement as a planetary civilization molecule, if you will. Ilya Prigogine rocked the scientific world with his theories on disequilibrium and made this statement: “When a molecule’s implicate (existing) order starts to fall apart, the entity faces a moment of choice, the ‘bifurcation point.’ It can either go out of existence, or recognize itself at a higher level to accommodate the new variables.” Consider the thoughtmosphere of the human race as this molecule now.

What that means is that a new living awareness results from the turn toward love at the bifurcation point. This turn toward love brings noticeable changes in one’s environment, which also speaks to the notion that Bruce Lipton presents in our ability to change our biology as a result of how we perceive our environment. Seeing the world through new eyes is important now.

How we advance in the next few years, maybe even this year will set the standard, is more important than ever now. It is imperative to shift our focus from the old fear, guilt and shame game to a new view that puts our processing on hold for just a fraction of a moment, allowing us to pause for the cause (our lives) and take a breath (inspiration) before launching into old patterns that were created from the thinking and tools that got us into this mess. Can we do it?

I cannot begin to delineate all the features and benefits of such a shift, nor can I begin to cover all the areas affected (and how) throughout our global society because of its complexity across the gamut of perplexing challenges currently facing our leadership. What I can do is encourage a deeper look, a longer pause in reflecting on your real values and how you live them. I think we all want to love and be love, as corny as that may sound, so how are we demonstrating that in our daily lives and relationships?

Light, Sound and Science

Light, Sound and Science

Janna Levin presents some very interesting information about our universe, including black holes and the rhythm and sound of their nature. Her presentation of the potential sounds we http://cialistadalafils.com/ might hear, if we could, resemble the sounds heard by those who have explored deeper levels of consciousness through catalysts, meditation or both. There is a certain ‘white noise’ that can be heard, supposedly, by advanced machinery designed to detect small sounds amongst the stars.

Her graphics illustrating the wormholes that appear around black holes look eerily similar to the descriptions of those who have journeyed inward, whether under the tutelage of a master, shaman or priest doesn’t seem to make a difference. The wormhole imagery appears as concentric circles of similar size with a fabric of sorts connecting everything along the way. Many graphics labeled as ‘sacred geometry’ have similar appearances, such as the images formed in sand or water as the sound of ‘om’ is made.

One can only wonder, based on the theory of everything being connected somehow, if there is a method of ‘hearing’ or ‘experiencing’ these other dimensions, different rhythms and sounds emanating from some ‘original’ source, like the big bang. Regarding the notion of the black hole, is it possible there is an exit where the matter and light that is drawn into it somehow appears on the other side.

If we continue along the lines of energy never being destroyed, only transformed, then we might expect to experience ‘something’ on the other side. What if the collapse of a black hole was  the Big Bang?

Okay, bringing it back to the present is it possible that we can ‘tune in’ without some mechanical device’s measurement as evidence?

As with the need for filtering out the static in the universal display in order to hear the rhythms and sounds of creation, is it possible for mankind as individuals to get quiet enough to hear those same rhythms and sounds as part of the natural makeup of our consciousness?

Might those sounds also be present in the experience of those who claim to have the inner experiences that may validate Janna’s findings in other ways?

Does it make sense that, somehow, man can hear God beyond the anthropomorphic?

Will machines validate the experience of humans who have spoken of these things throughout history?

For many years I’ve sought the capacity to cross-reference internal experience with external sources in order to determine whether it even makes sense to pursue further. I’ve had the sense that if these experiences are available, as many seem to have them, then there ought to be a way to make sense common – demonstrate that there is indeed some interconnected web within consciousness.

If that interconnected web exists, then how might it show up in our daily lives in ways that are easily recognizable and therefore manageable in some way. What might the signs be that would make it recognizable and then how might we manage and/or interpret the interactions. It has been my experience that the ‘moments’ of experience appear ‘out of time’ or ‘non-linear’ in most circumstances. Translating those kind of experiences into a linear language is cumbersome to say the least.

The term ‘tangential’ is probably most adequate in the attempts to translate, usually because translations tend to sound more like the meanderings of what have been previously labeled as an attention-deficit individual. I cannot help but wonder if this is more of an attention-driven experience that has little capacity for translation because we’ve simply not observed it from such a perspective.

So how does one attempt to offer a view of what appears to be the mirror of the universe; reflections of perspectives from both science (external) and spirituality (internal)? Could this lead to further understanding the bridges between the lucid environments offered from some pseudo-dreamtime experiences or even some of the ‘contact’ types of experiences being reported?

Granted, there are many questions that evolve from such contemplations. It would seem that considerations and conversations themed with ‘what if there was evidence?’ and open to exploring areas where experience is growing but knowledge is lacking might be forthcoming. If the universe, like man, is self-revealing to those who have the eyes and ears, then where might we begin to see the signs?

If, as one might suspect, those signs reveal further potential technologies that could/would benefit mankind in the pursuit of developing universal understanding, then discovery and promotion of ‘clean’ technologies for sustainable development of our planetary civilization would probably be a result.

These are loose contemplations at best and the ‘schedule’ of this natural development could be tens or even hundreds of years. Based on the progression of discoveries and development of technology over the last hundred years, it is quite possible that certain breakthroughs might facilitate a drastic shift in a relatively short time. It could be as simple as a few brilliant minds stumbling upon each other and comparing notes. What kind of notes might you have?

In conclusion, I fully understand I write in somewhat incomprehensible jargon at times and yet some of what I postulate makes sense common. I think that is really what we’d all like a bit more of these days. Sense being made common could have a great impact on changing behavior habits and patterns in our future. Perhaps I may sound brilliant. I’m still on stage being an idiot and ultimately it signifies nothing, or so I’m told.

The Challenge to Change

CelebrateChangeThe Challenge to Change

We know, or at least some have a sense, that all things are connected – a holistic model of consciousness permeates creation. Quantum sciences are pointing toward this as fact now. We still choose to separate ourselves from others today, though.

Fear is being promoted at the very top of national leadership across the world. Even when prompted to contact or communicate with another, our ‘logic’ often prohibits the interaction due to fear of misunderstanding, rejection or threat of appearing less than what we think we should.

Can we affect change where primary belief systems seem diametrically opposed? Can we offer a solution? Do we really want solutions? It has taken us centuries to arrive at the present conditions. Can or will it change in a few years? Will we rise above fear and embrace a new way?

How can we open our minds to something we’ve never experienced? What if we were able to acknowledge the obvious? Our minds and hearts are still in opposition, we fear what we do not know or have not experienced.

Oftentimes a new experience brings such a ‘rush’ of energy that we confuse it as a threat rather than a thread in the fabric of our evolution. We lock up – the fight or flight syndrome so common in psychology.

Are these our only choices? Do we have yet another choice yet unexplored? We can rise in consciousness but we actually take the mandatory rollercoaster ride to get there. It is our unconscious patterned desire for continued separation that inhibits our ability to connect, a pattern so deep and in such conflict with self/Self that wars are fought across the planet because of it.

Ancient Mayan and even Sanskrit terms in use today indicate we might want to consider some alternatives. ‘In lakesh’ (I am another you) and ‘Namasté’ (internal and external obeisance to thee) both acknowledge the oneness in self and others.

The humble bow of recognition that is part of many cultures moves us closer toward a sense of unity or at least understanding. It is more than respect. I am challenged to see and sense myself in another, even with the extensive experience and knowing of this truth and an attitude of gratitude. What about those unaware?

The Internet brings us closer in communication and yet further apart from physical communion with others. What do we really want anyway? The hot new belief system says we can attract what we want by identifying what we desire, giving it attention, and allowing it to happen.navigate

Easier said than done, yet it warrants further consideration for sure. Implementing an action plan that creates the magnet for the desire to manifest is the key that we seem to ignore, thinking that we can defy known scientific rules: potential energy remains at rest until acted upon.

Conversely it is an obvious strain in feeling and logic to eliminate the concept of identifying what we don’t want in order to move closer to what we do. Still the objective is to create, co-create or construct new thoughtforms of a stronger magnetism that allows matter and spirit to coalesce in accordance with this new living awareness. I’ve heard it called ‘structural tension’ as an element in the creative process. How do we make the process simple?

Simplicity of being, doing and having is the goal for all spiritual seekers, allowing the greater consciousness to permeate their worlds and guide their daily movements. Simple gratification and validation is also the goal of most individuals in daily living, unconsciously desiring to love and be loved in the spirit of oneness. We talk a good line, but the result is tainted with pushing or pulling energy to move as many mountains as possible with as little effort as we can muster.

This is not to say that humans are lazy, yet they do tend to avoid the stretch to actually make things simple in their daily lives, let alone shift into a heart-centered awareness. Once a heart-centered awareness is achieved, though, the knowing moves us toward more prudent paths.

Our perceived intelligence often convinces us not to listen to the still small voice within, even after a so-called ‘spiritual awakening.’ We rarely challenge the notion of duality, yet it is the stumbling block laid before us in our quest to find balance and harmony.

Even science and religion strive to find harmony in their expressions of reality and thousands of books have been written on the subject of Unity… unified field theory to universal love, M Theory to The Masters of the Far East and much more. How can we simplify?

Would it be easier to simply look at the existing systems in our global economy, for instance, and focus on developing life-friendly processes and protocols? How can we better manage our resources, both human and material, while promoting a sense of unification without subjugation?

We are faced with choices on a moment to moment basis, pushed and pulled by this or that to make a decision about our lives, great or small. Granted some do not want to choose, they simply want to follow or be told what to do so they do not have to be accountable or responsible for their actions. It is far easier a path to be led than to lead. It is a challenge to think, let alone change.

Something to consider is that challenge and change are only 3 letters different. Take out the ‘lle’ and change is automatic. I like to offer that the ‘lle’ stands for ‘liability, limitation and excuse’ and all fall into the personal capacity realm first, but extend into the group, organization or team when facing goals and objectives. Consider the identification and systematic elimination of those items in yourself and/or your organization. What might happen as a result?

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.

Looking Back with a Smile

postgrad-238x300What have you done over the last year or so to engage your dream? Do you even have one? If you don’t… why? I began Be The Dream in 1988 with a vision of becoming a leading resource for bridging the worlds of spirituality and supply… producing deliverables that make a difference in people’s lives personally and professionally.

I’ve spent the last couple of decades discovering, engaging, interpreting, testing, vetting and working to craft products and services that fulfill that desire and truly empower those who know there is more to life, more to living and more to consciousness than we are currently considering.

Over the last several decades I’ve been under the tutelage of various industries, mentors, educational institutions and most importantly, the school of hard knocks. The latter is most beneficial because it provides the stepping stones, the most important lessons that life offers on a daily basis – IF you are paying attention and aware of the process. I had a friend who countered the ‘Law of Attraction’ with the ‘Law of distraction and interruption’ as the most common result for people who are looking for enlightenment or success in life. We all fall short, get up, dust ourselves off and continue moving forward because we know it is in our best interest to do so.

There are many ways to find success and even more importantly – fulfillment – in life. All too often we lose the excitement of achieving our dreams in the moment we get ready to share them with others. Socially and spiritually we have been programmed to be discounted, insecure, unsure of our ability and capacity to perform at peak levels that match the belief system we profess. I’ve found that to be unacceptable and I hope you do too. It helps to have a great sense of humor, especially when it comes to noticing your own shortcomings and/or perceived mistakes.

So what do you do about it? I can only encourage you do something, but only AFTER you spend some time getting to know yourself better. You see, we lie to ourselves in the mirror of life a lot. So many are stuck in their mental projections of who they are that they miss the energetic projections that exude who they are to others. If you think that is incorrect, get still for a while and notice the difference between how you feel and what you think and project. If there is no disparity, then CONGRATULATIONS! You are there.. totally present and available to your BEing in the moment.

If your feelings and thoughts seem to be incongruous and/or appearing to have some cognitive dissonance, then you may feel a stirring within you now that is causing you to feel there might be something here for you. Indeed, there is… Just what I cannot say for sure just now. I can and do encourage you to look over the information below and make a purchase or two, allowing yourself to be drawn to what attracts you most. If there is nothing… that’s fine, too. I’m not a salesperson, per se, but I do want to persuade you to make a choice to help yourself and promote my resources as a possibility for you to do so. You will experience a change for the better.

So here is the list and it doesn’t have everything, but just compiling it made me realize another step in accomplishing my dream to help others has reached fruition. I look forward to hearing your results. If I can be of service in any way, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me and ask questions. I’ve never refused to help.

An afternoon behind the Dixie Hotel, honoring the dead and celebrating the living. This was a rather magical encounter after six months of absence. We lept into the Void and a wonderful afternoon happened to get recorded. Sometimes the magic works as we traveled through many genres and styles.
