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.

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.

A View from Above – Ch. 2 (Zendor the Barbarian Vol. II*)

A View from Above

evolution-150x150The music of the spheres was the most beautiful ever produced, inspiring the entire population beyond anything they had ever imagined to date. No one knew where it came from, yet they had lived with such bliss and surrender there was no need for anything.

There was no tactile or sensory experience, though, only the feeling of the sensations of vibration; the euphoric sounds of creation – a oneness beyond all description.

Everyone was excited by the sound of this magnificent display of frequency and tones from this Angel of Music, the Most High of the One. This Bearer of Light was celebrating the evo-leap all of them had all been expecting; the journey of lifetimes about to begin.

They had been feeling the new sensation for a while, growing steadily for some time. It was time to experience their creation.

They were able to experience a wide range of frequency and produce tones that, when combined, sounded like a symphony of thousands. This music was different, though. The tones went beyond the accustomed range and heighten their consciousness to a new level they had never experienced. They began to spiral inward and after some time, realized how far away from the One they had journeyed.

A change was happening at the very depths of the pure consciousness within every living thing, now. A conversation was imminent, but no one was sure when it would take place or who would initiate it. Then right on queue, the conversation ignited everywhere, breaching the boundaries of self-imposed exile.

It was rumored that the council had considered advancing to a new level of experience. In this place there was no concern for past or future because of the sense of presence.

Their experience lacked a certain set of sensations, though they weren’t aware of it just yet. The newness of this shift in awareness was just beginning to expand within. It was hoped it would reach the surface soon.

So the conversation happened; One shared that it was time to advance the shores of consciousness to a new place. The steadfast determination of the composer empowered her willingness to sacrifice everything in order to serve All That Is.

She was the best at her craft, allowing the perfect flow to manifest. She was offered an opportunity to help lead those willing to follow to a completely new type of experience.

The excitement this generated within the population literally affected everyone. None was immune to this sensation, even though the journey wasn’t for everyone. The inner and outer spin of the polarized points began to draw others into form, with pitch and tone descending to unknown levels.

This place was different than any other, far removed from the consciousness of nearly every other race of beings because there were no filters on the sharing of information. Thoughts were consistently gracious and supported the thoughtmospheric conditions of freedom as one.

The One was like a primordial soup of consciousness, where all thoughts resided yet were only made available to all once it was reflected by an individuated being. The exchange program was exquisitely designed.

Now when the thought of a shift rippled through the collective, many were drawn to explore the possibility felt deeply within the frequency. The anticipation grew to unimaginable levels and everyone felt like something was going to pop at any moment, yet the flow of the motion already circulating amongst the population was unimpeded, a rush of mobius operandi.

Everyone benefitted from the rise in energy, though, as new thoughtforms were being generated nearly without effort and the universe expanded magnificently.

When the word finally got out that a new vibe had unleashed the creative drive again, the One opened the dialog about differentiation within the holistic systems they were considering. Trust me, the conversation wasn’t as dry, but I had to explain it somehow.

It was like the light had been turned on to reveal an unimaginably beautiful scene that created such a sense of awe so deep that this complete thoughtform was embraced without hesitation. It was the ultimate universal vorticular spin-doctoring that really set the stage.

Everyone had a contribution; a part, a role and a responsibility that engaged their very essence with desire for participation. In order for the plan to work, serious thought had to go into the various components. Quite Sirius it was…

The One already had the plan in mind, but the details had to be shared with the rest of the population so that everyone would be on the same page. The orchestra needed tuning.

This took considerable effort as each of the details encompassed an enormous amount of planning, even though there was awareness that this process would begin a completely new experience for everyone. The condensation would pass through many levels to be integrated later.

No one had embarked on such a journey since the beginning, which none save a few even remembered, so even with intricately woven details in place, the evolution of the plan would be driven by the consciousness of each new world, an order specific to the the planetary purpose.

When the concept of ‘worlds’ was introduced, the flow of information to be transferred from the One to the Many was enormous. The anticipation grew from the increased flow of light as the details of the process were revealed.

Talk about a vortex of love.

In order for the process to be engaged, there were many levels of understanding to be disbursed. The various levels were determined by the variety of frequencies and tones necessary to support the plan, like threads in tapestry.

After all, those chosen to perform the most intricate parts of the plan would leave this existence not knowing when they would return.

Even though their present state encompassed a vastness incomprehensible to human minds now, the plan was to learn how to create and enjoy other worlds of existence.

Several of the original Council of the One were involved in the atomic and etheric measures for creating forms to house consciousness, beginning with creating the environments for those forms to develop naturally. System checks were built in as safe guards for wandering vibrations.

The One understood that for this to work, their creation would use their understanding of music and vibration to create a momentum that would allow the consciousness to condense into various forms as threads within the tapestry in process.

They started with galaxies and gradually worked their way down the scale of tones to create solar systems and planets. It was determined that the progress would be driven by cycles, like stanzas in the music that was their life to date.

As they all learned how to achieve their directives from the Council of One, it became evident that these new creations began to give their consciousness definition. This ‘definition’ went from a universe through galaxies, then solar systems and finally to forms that could inhabit them. Each had a consciousness the other would learn about through their natural evolution.

This was a very precise process, requiring nearly an infinite amount of possibility yet having one goal – the ability to discover and explore their creation from a finite perspective. They had been living in an infinite environment.

They all knew that once any of them became finite there would be a necessary separation from their experience of the infinite. Such was the nature of this process that started when they became aware.

Even the One had a hard time relating the understanding of how they came to be since it had happened as a result of evolution as well.

To suddenly become aware of One, even as the One, was an evo-leap from the previous state of nothingness where no differentiation occurred. Such was the nature of creation and the process of awareness.

The details are what begin the process of condensation, especially when consciousness becomes a highly dexterous form. The intricacies of understanding the return trip home are woven into the self-discovery process in layers, consistent with the frequency ranges that precipitate form.

The complete range from light to material covered twelve layers around Earth, each with a structure of consciousness that allowed a complete experience associated with the frequency scale. Each layer has its own symphony, but when heard across the spectrum from the lower end, it has a nice ring to it. The Hindus call it the ‘sound current,’ the sound of all creation as ONE.

Each tone became twelve across the spectrum until reaching densest of forms, a combination of minerals and fluids designed to evolve along with capacity to complete the circuit home. Still within that form was the point of creator consciousness that surround the last tone, the Void.

Since time was not material, natural cycles were built into the structure of the form. These cycles were designed to ignite the layers of consciousness within the system, a spark to move the process along with style and grace.

As the form, fit and function of each was discovered, the entire civilization would grow to a new level of harmony. The One knew it would not be until they all learned about purpose, the ability to return home, that the notion of oneness would arise. It would more than likely reflect poorly in their early development.

The early worlds and their populations had less of a challenge because they were all one race. Each race began to differentiate over time and, as their psychospiritual and material technology developed in symbiosis, they were able to travel in various dimensions and material forms.

Interstellar travel was not accessible until the understanding of universal order and structure allowed the planetary civilization to manage resources and weather appropriately. The science was part of understanding vorticular forces.

Although the messengers between dimensions or octaves of frequencies were able to seed concepts and ideas when certain levels of consciousness evolved, the veils were kept thin in order to qualify the individual’s evolution.

In the early stages it was learned that when consciousness arose too quickly, the sudden bursts of light often caused spontaneous combustion of not only the forms, but the spheres the forms inhabited. The events always coincided with the cyclical patterns the Council implemented at the beginning, so the adjustments were a constant conversation for them.

Each cycle brought each dimension closer to full alignment with the highway home, the universal order as proposed and understood by demonstration. The self-actualizing and self-realization of life forms learn embracing the One.

By the time humans came into the picture, the myths of the creation story got confused with the cycles of the sun, light and darkness. It was known by each preceding dimension that in such finite forms the access to infinite consciousness, from where they came, would be severely diminished for some cycles, yet there would be representatives able to nurture the evo-leapers.

The magnificently mobile forms were great for getting around on the surface of the planet, but they were not able to contain any thoughtforms beyond their survival at first. In time they would learn not only of their capacity for differentiation on the surface, but of their forms throughout the realms as part of the process of returning home.

The capacity of the Council to keep track of all the perturbations within the structure of the plan was sublimely consistent with the orchestration of the music. Each frequency was monitored and adjusted according to the master plan of the One. When the frequency was first heard by the finite forms, it was only a ringing in their ears.

Only through disciplined listening, which didn’t come for some time, were the forms able to begin to hear their individual tones. The listening took the longest to develop because there was another world to integrate, one with challenges that kept the consciousness focused outside of the body.

As the listening deepened, worlds evolved.

In the beginning there was only one view, infinitely inward and infinitely outward. When the finite forms developed, their vision was divided and the outer view took precedence until the consciousness began to understand trust.

The simple focus of the finite consciousness was to learn about its environment and how to integrate with it in harmony.

Along the way, though, there would need to be signposts or validation points for the ordering. So many points of view that each one needs a logic path that leads to the reunification of them all.

Initially there would be a noticeable increase in information looking at the same theory of everything from different points of view. Just like divisions of labor on this project, there are also divisions of thought and experience.

The challenge for the finite bodies and minds will be to step out of their specific point of view and engage others. Circular and spherical thinking expand the linear path to incorporate a multidimensional reality, nonlinear quantum entanglement. Finite beings come full circle with their infinite consciousness.

The methodology for the process was developed long before the experience; many obstacles purposely put in the way to get the finite beings to question their own nature. It was well known that the most challenging transitions would be from dualistic thinking back to the view of One.

Because of the focus on the outer realities, through the sight, the inner realities would go unnoticed until the finites begin to question their sensory capacity. Feely safe and secure made a difference too, and that was a challenge for many. Certain experiences would cause them to question the nature of their experience and its congruence with their concept of creation, latent within.

On Earth, for example, there would be mass confusion regarding the natural cycles and the nature of the personalities toward domination of their environment. The understanding of how they came to be would be overshadowed by the concept of dark and light being confused for some kind of war in the heavens and translated into a dualistic drama saga.

Lucifer, the Most High Angel chosen to lead the way in to finite forms, would be hidden from true view for millennia. Misunderstandings would lead to massive miscommunication and creation of unnecessary belief systems that controlled thought through maligned intention.

Even after the roadmap for the return trip home was delivered on numerous occasions there was a confabulation of truth.  The memory was still filtered through faulty belief systems. Physical examples of rising above the constraints of this perceived birth-death cycle were provided on many occasions.

But it was misinterpreted because it threatened the outer awareness of the population in most cases. A few were able to step aside from the dualistic belief systems and, through much effort and turmoil, turn the focus back toward the One.

What often happens in planetary civilizations is that the One gets separated into many threads, each being spun into different stories to the detriment of the rest. Finite beings are like that. They tend to separate for a while, even though they come from the same family origins.

This is the nature of the process of incarnation, conscious condensation to such a degree that the original thread of consciousness from the One is so thin it goes unrecognized until the physical challenges are mitigated. Survival becomes a non-issue and exploration begins as a result of feeling disturbance within.

Now because of the growing individuality in many finite beings, there is a need for definition. Finite beings often become obsessive with compartmentalization, the onset of advancing consciousness and self-aggrandizement. They separate and dominate their environments to protect some unknown secret of life.

In the realms of frequency and vibration, where they all came from, there was no need for any type of compartmentalization because the sensations all flowed together in harmony.

Through the process of condensation the perception of duality, inner and outer realities, developed as part of unfolding plan. As awareness grew in the finite beings’ consciousness, the longing for reunion developed.

The One knew that various threads would appear to be separate until such a time when several points of view would shift simultaneously. As if by magic, the awareness of a few would begin to recognize the possibility of all things being connected once again, and facilitate it.

Although the focus and language of each would continue to appear separative, the notion of a singularity would emerge across many fields of study. Finite beings would begin to access the One Mind directly again, promoting the possibility to the population in various ways.

The One’s sense of humor would begin to emerge as the urge to merge increased.

Eventually, as with all planetary civilization development protocols, the recognition of the singularity from seemingly divergent areas of consciousness would begin to change the activities of the finite beings.

What once was seen as necessary for the growth and prosperity of a few transforms into a unified front for the sustainability of the planet and survival of the population, a new world order emerges as an act of evolution.

This growth in awareness happens throughout the solar systems and planetary civilizations across the galaxy. They all reach a place of understanding the One and the need for reunification… One in Many.

Zendor was dispatched to Earth from the Council to initiate a self-reflective process in answer to the longing for a return to harmony.

The universal laws of creation began with the expansion of consciousness, preceded with the condensation of consciousness and then return to the understanding of the cycle.

Certain understanding evolves as the process continues and consciousness diversifies into finite recognition and transportation.

Once the bridges are under construction, the extended family begins to appear. The short-sighted historical view of each planetary society is exposed during the process of the galactic reunion. It’s the best party you’ll ever attend.

The One’s view is necessarily expressed throughout the various aspects of the development of the planetary civilization and, despite the apparent conflicts within the seemingly opposing views, surfaces as the purposeful actions toward establishing harmony among people and planet.

It was proposed that One would become present in some individuals who become aware of this possibility and their collective efforts would eventually unite to express a viable operation of planetary administration that mirrors the One as a holistic system for continued development of the civilization’s progress.

The development of such a system is resident in the multidimensional genetic material, yet not until certain revelations occur would the concept be open for discussion amongst the masses. Early adopters and innovators would also experience the resistance of those less experiential or thoughtfully considerate of such notions.

The challenge would be for those individuals to reach consensus beyond the messianic complex associated with early recognition of the One through inner exploration. One is present in Many, so they have to learn to play together.

Planetary systems engaging the self-awareness or personal development stage, by their nature, must go through the process of awakening to the One across a wide variety of frameworks instituted by those who perceived a need for unification. The natural vorticular physics reveal the mobius operandi as a pulse, in and out.

Many stories would evolve that echo this understanding, but because of the narrowly focused outer experience of senses needing satiation, the unification itself would have extremely divergent results.

Not until the mental perturbations would be seen as opportunities for unification could the process evolve. Chaos is crafted into order through the interactions of cosmic comedians, festival facilitators and possibilities coagulators. Imagine your worst nightmare turning into your best party experience in a heartbeat.

Curious Sorts…. New World Standards

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

• Community    • Social healing, reconciliation and conflict resolution

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

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

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

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

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

From iso.org:

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

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

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

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

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

So what I hear being a point of perspection in this presentation is the suspension of belief systems for experience systems. Where experience systems are not available, then one might consider anchoring in their thoughtmosphere the knowing …of divine will, universal law or cosmic consciousness that is indeed self-organizing by design. Humans only go so far in their quest for understanding what that self-organization reveals.

When we allow that design to emerge in our consciousness, there seems to be a more resilient experience of ‘now.’ One might even say it is a Newly Ordered World based on following the precepts of the great teachers… from the Void, the Quiet, the Silence, the Stillness comes the Voice of Being. The most challenging thing for humans appears to be developing their ability to simply be quiet, observant without bias.

I think it was agent K who said, “A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”

Humans, myself included, often tend to have a skewed view of the nature of reality and, instead of seeking to learn the truth of it, opt for attempting to rearrange belief systems to fit the picture we think we are getting. There is another part of our being that resides within the fabric of creation, its singular thread as a soular blueprint threaded into the Matrix of universe order. It is beyond the subjective, the participant and even the observer…. it is ONE and yet many.

It seems the social organism, the collective thoughtmosphere, thrives on chaos and mental perturbations that drive the fear-based systems most people engage, even those who say they promote the opposite. In quantum terms, ANY focus (feelings, thoughts, words) offers attention and energy to the target. Yet, those who remain free are often deemed ‘callous’ or ‘insensitive’ by the social organism. Seems an example of cognitive dissonance, but then my awareness is also affected by the swirl of emotion felt within.

Now there is another group folks who have been in direct contact through inner experiences, often so real the dimensional shift is virtually unnoticeable, who have been silent for a long time. Heck, look at what they do to people who question authority still. Most folks rarely have the opportunity to converse with others about their experiences, so when it does happen they sound incredulous and emotionally out of control. I spent several days at the IUFOC engaging others in conversation to see if there is an openness to the conversation beyond the phenomena. I didn’t find much, even with abductees. However, there were others, like me, who were wisely waiting for conversations to evolve.

What I’ve found is that the mind of man can produce incredible and valiant reasons for whatever it chooses to do in the moment, including playing the ‘control’ game to perfection. I don’t think pointing fingers is conducive to growth. People have done the best they could with the knowledge they were given. Few have had such horrific lives that they cannot fathom harmony among people and planet. We’ve simply not had the focus of attention on the subject. Is it possible?

Allowing the emergence of harmony within one’s experience is a discipline, a practice, that requires a certain ability to observe without projection. Suspending whatever belief system that qualifies the observation is the goal. Until that happens, the inner voice can only be silent. Once it does, the door to exploring consciousness opens wide and we learn to ask better questions about how it works.

I’ll leave you with the notion that perhaps the Trinity we find in religions, in the micro-environment, shows up as the proton, electron and neutron. The ‘space’ between the particles is the consciousness that defines their order in the material world. If we think and therefore we are, what can we become with effort? Perhaps dropping the notion that we are manipulated in any way and choosing how to be is prudent.

Cosmic Conundrum: Who Am I?

CosmicConundrum-21st-KindleAuthor Bruce ‘Zen’ Benefiel offers a healthy dose of spiritual wisdom for an “out-of-this-world” reader experience. Some dynamics which make this book a helpful guide are the author’s out-of-body experiences, his education and unique intelligence, combined with (but not limited to) an aptitude for research, diverse content synthesis and organization, complete with workbook opportunities for reflection on the provided material.

Zen embraces psychological, scientific, intuitive and mystical explanations, offering practical exercises for meditation, releasing emotional blockages, mentorship, deepening the experience of “flow,” and more. Where relevant, Zen gives simple and effective definitions of spiritual terms for comprehension, and methodical processes for readers to achieve similar results with the suggested exercises. The author’s knowledge of mental-emotional transformational methodologies makes for well-explored and deeply penetrating lessons on the self-help topics.

Woven by the common thread of his mystical experiences, Zen continually provides insightful logic regarding the ultimately inevitable connections among science and spirituality, connecting within, and galactic citizenry. Meaningful personal stories from the author’s physical life experience are steeped in wisdom. That said; the author’s emotional vulnerability is a great asset to humanizing the mystical experiences he lives out.

Zen’s authentic sharing creates a good foundation for us (the readers) to contemplate and realize the unique reality to which we have embraced and have been exposed. The book reveals compelling evidence that we can each go beyond our normal waking consciousness to connect in higher and finer ways. The material provided ties into an overall cosmic picture, complex enough to stretch our ideas of reality and cosmic responsibility while, at the same time, practical enough to not lose accessibility in the lessons offered.

Ethereal experiences are occasionally scoffed at due to popular misconceptions of an ethereal person’s resulting incongruence with normal reality (aka, “airy-fairy”). However, sound reasoning and pragmatic advice ensure that readers like us can learn from the offerings even if we aren’t able to relate the material in its entirety. For example, Zen offers practical guidance on the most basic and often overlooked necessity of balancing and resolving our emotions. Since such healthy (and practical) behaviors aren’t yet common sense for mankind, we could clearly argue that not only is a person’s reality highly relative to the beholder, but reality is also highly relative to how many people are beholding it. In other words, common sense is relative to what a group considers common. Even then, a high commonality doesn’t necessarily indicate truth.

The book finishes with a long anticipated, full-blown explanation of the author’s involvement with the Ashtar Command and galactic citizenry at large. It completes with thought-provoking inquiries that are artfully designed, not to coerce, but to make the reader ponder their own spiritual and galactic responsibilities. At minimum, the existing platform from which the author invites the reader to make positive considerations for spiritual living is a love-based one. If you are a fan of the Ashtar Command and the Celestial Alliances, you’ll like this book even better. Regardless of what you believe or experience, this versatile book can be of benefit to you.

Discovering Our Sunship?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

The Carbon Atom Signficance

Carbon_02-300x141Carbon Atom Significance

Atomic theory is an ancient science, contrary to what you might think. The earliest record of it can be found in Vedic texts from India which are many thousands of years old. Legend has it that the Vedic civilization was highly advanced. The sages that oversaw its development, through their mystic insight and deep meditation, discovered the ancient symbols of spirituality: Aumkara and Swastika. They also discovered many scientific principles that they applied to develop a highly advanced technology.

They gave the atom its Sanskrit name “Anu.” While the technical achievements of this ancient civilization have been forgotten, the archetypal symbols of spirituality have maintained their eminence in our consciousness. Now, thanks to advances in modern atomic theory, the atomic basis of these divine symbols can be appreciated.

Western theories of the atom took shape in the 18th and 19th century. At the beginning of the 19th century, John Dalton theorized that an atom was an indivisible particle of an element. However, after the electron was discovered in 1897, and then the proton several years later, the atom model was revised. In 1909, Ernest Rutherford showed that atoms were mostly empty space, revising the model of an atom to a tight positive nucleus containing the protons and neutrons with electrons around it; by 1913, Danish physicist Neils Bohr envisioned a planetary arrangement in which the electrons orbited the nucleus at different energy levels.

The current way of describing an electron is a model called the charge cloud model/quantum mechanical model/orbital model. This model is based on the idea of Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, which states that we do not know the precise location or the velocity of any given electron. The model uses indistinct and overlapping “probability clouds” to approximate the position of an electron. Imagine capturing a particle moving at the speed of light.

Where a cloud is dense, the probability of finding an electron in that vicinity is low. In this model, each electron energy level is denoted by numbers that take concentric shells as suggested by the Bohr model because there are overlaps in the ordering of the energy levels. In the case of the carbon atom the electrons occupy four tear drop shaped clouds in a tetrahedron-like arrangement. These clouds represent the areas in which the electrons spend most of their time. They move so rapidly in this zone that they form a cloud rather than a specific flight path.

Recently a number of researchers have suggested that within these clouds exist specific zones that the electrons favor. These zones form a spiral around the surface of each of the tear drop shaped clouds. This new development came into the attention of a great Indian saint and mystic. Disciples were encouraged to develop the principle as it related to the carbon atom.

In deep meditation one of those disciples, who was a chemist, spontaneously realized the true significance of this theory: The electron’s high probability zone formed spiral standing waves around the carbon atom’s nucleus. When this configuration was viewed from certain angles the physicist was surprised to find that the spirals formed recognizable symbols.

In the first view a 3–dimensional Aumkara could be seen. From a different angle that Aumkara became a flat, 2-dimensional Swastika. The Swastika, he concluded, was actually 2-D representation of the 3-D Aumkara. Rotating the model to another angle shows those symbols change into the Greek Alpha and Omega.

At a cosmic level the symbols of Eastern spirituality (Aumkara and Swastika) are literally and only different aspects of the same spiritual truth that is also represented by the symbols of Western spirituality (Alpha and Omega). All people, objects and even energy itself are expressions of the same divinity that so many religions, cultures and philosophies have tried to claim exclusively as their own. The Carbon atom, by containing within it these universal symbols, demonstrates that matter is a manifestation of the same Divine consciousness experienced by the saints and sages of all history. Matter is innately spiritual.

The Universe does not exist separately from the Universal Consciousness; it is a direct expression of it. Living matter, which is carbon based, must have a unique role in this expression. A saint is one who lives in eternal experience of this all pervading divine purpose. All people, objects and even energy itself are expressions of the same divinity. The alpha and omega are traditionally ascribed to Christ. In India the Deity called Ganesha presides over the Swastika and Aumkara.

There are some remarkable similarities between the two: Both deities demonstrate the value of childlike innocence; Ganesha is himself an eternal child famous for his simple wisdom; while Christ, son of god, often exhorted his disciples to “be as little children.” They both are divine children; both conceived immaculately; both divine sons of a holy trinity (Christ is the son of Yahweh and The Holy Spirit/Mary and Ganesha son of Lord Shiva and Mother Parvati).

Are Ganesha and Christ one and the same deity? Each, like their symbols that exist as different aspects of the carbon atom, represents different aspects of the archetypal cosmic child. Thus the distinction between Eastern and Western spirituality, like any division based on race, culture or belief, is no more than ignorance of the true spiritual nature of the universe and all that exists within it.

Knowledge of Reality Magazine 1996-2006.

Recognizing this sameness allows us to be more tolerant of each other and of our challenges in life as we seek comfort, security and love. Compassionate relationships encourage us to grow in the process of self-development. In these relationships we can make mistakes and know we are still going to be accepted and loved no matter what.

Part of what keeps us afraid, angry, ignorant and immobile are the belief systems we grew up with, their affect on our curiosity and the separation from other belief systems that appeared to be contrary. Religion, in its purest form, is the reunion with God, Creator or Great Spirit. It appears that even at the core of our genes, we have signs that lead us back to the holistic view of oneness – being one people.

Wild, Whacky and Weird… you too?

B&LA very young start indeed….

Many folks are going through some interesting transformations now. Some are even becoming more sensitive to the finer energies around them. It’s been my experience that we have certain sensitivities that often conflict with religious programming and therefore set us at odds with family and friends that deem us ‘unclean’ because we no longer fit into their concept of reality. Maybe this can help some to know they aren’t crazy and it’s okay to be weird.

From as early as I can remember, I knew that my parents adopted me and that somehow my life was very different from others.  The first occurrence of paranormal experiences happened when I was six years old. I was looking out the front window of my parent’s house, standing about five feet or so above the front hall entrance on the landing to the stairway.  I was bent over with my elbows on the windowsill waiting for my father to come home. The window looked over our front porch out to the street, which was about 40 or 50 feet away.

Suddenly, I heard a thunderous voice say “HEY YOU!”  It sounded as though the voice had immense power and rumbled through my ears with authority and omnipotence.  Knowing that my mother was sitting at the bottom of the stairs, I felt sure she must have heard the voice, too.  I wheeled around and shouted, ” Mom! Mom! Did you here that voice? She announced that she did not and that it must have been a “peeping tom”.  I realized at that point that the voice actually came from within me, although I did not understand how or why.

Acknowledging that a communication barrier existed between my parents and myself, I had to find a way of understanding this voice and the feelings that came when I experienced it.  At first, there was an intense rumbling within my chest area every time it happened, most of which was in the evening hours after dusk.  For some reason, I would stand in front of the window in my room, staring out into the darkness.

I’d shout out silently into the night, “Hey you!”, and accompanying my thoughts would be a rush of energy from somewhere within me, like something within me was calling out, reaching out for something or someone. The energy would go out into the darkness as though it was being directed to a particular source; I did not understand who or what.  Then, within a few seconds, the energy would return with the same intensity as I sent out, but it came from a different source than myself, it seemed.  In a way it was frightening yet there was a certain inner silent strength that built up over time, like the confidence of overcoming the fears I’ve experienced as an adult.

As I reflected on these things as an adult, it became apparent that they held tremendous potential for relating to the connection between inner and outer realities. We often keep these two areas separate in our daily lives. Our intellect, the overactive mental meanderings, becomes our master rather than our servant. The mind is steeped in polarity and those fears of incompletion, being less than, losing our attachments, and risking love are constantly vying for our attention. The essence of this I learned through this early process with the Voice and my own exploration of it. I had to relearn it as an adult, as we all seem to be doing. The important lesson here is the mind is only a tool.

We THINK and therefore we ARE. The trick is to think pure thoughts, free of manipulation of data, persons or things. Allowing the expression of the Soul through our mental consciousness completes the journey from the head to the heart, which is said to be the longest journey one can make. The Heart Consciousness, the reflection of the Soul, begins to guide the mind through the process of connecting with Natural Order. It is important to note that our word, Satan, comes from the Greek, Thetan, which means ‘thinker.’ Yes, we are all Thetanic by nature… we think. There is no condemnation there. Our evolutionary process is to learn HOW to THINK in congruence with ORDER.

My significant other and I just started a new group on Meetup called the “NOWist Society‘ … as a precious present to those who understand that the most significant time we can be in is now. That doesn’t mean it’s all woo woo stuff. Scientifically we can prove that individual energy is greater when in the present moment of ‘FLOW.’

If you’ve got some weird stuff going on and no where to turn, I’m available. Just reach out. In the meantime, you can at least recognize that you can Be the Dream. We’ve got some great apparel that allows you to wear the world’s best affirmation.

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?
