FIXING A HOLE

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go.
I'm filling the cracks that ran through the door
And kept my mind from wandering
Where it will go.

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong.
I'm right where I belong.
I'm right where I belong.
See the people standing there
Who disagree and never win
And wonder why they don't get in my door.

I'm painting a room in a colorful way
And when my mind is wandering
There I will go.

And it really doesn't matter if I'm wrong.
I'm right where I belong.
I'm right where I belong.
Silly people run around,
They worry me, and never ask me
Why they don't get past my door.

I'm taking the time for a number of things
That weren't important yesterday,
And I still go.

I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
Stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go.
(Lennon/McCartney)




AND YET... EVEN MORE ON THE BENEFITS OF SUNSHINE! REALLY!!

Someone sent me THIS headline story this morning: "Scientists Blow The Lid on Cancer & Sunscreen Myth"

Below is the list and links of FPL posts I'm adding this story to.

Remember, folks, conventional wisdom is an oxymoron.

Enjoy! Summer's just around he corner!!

Here we go again! I've written about this many times (HERE and HERE), especially when celebrating the good 'ole summer time, as I am right now. I've posted links to studies showing that sunlight improves eyesight, and that the sun's dosages of Vitamin D help prevent cancer. Well, here's yet another article on the benefits of sunlight, this one entitled: "The Real Key To Improving Brain Function." 

Nicholas Spitzer, professor or neuroscience at the University of California and editor-in-chief of brainfacts.org, has a message for all of you out there who are listening to classical music and doing crossword puzzles as a way of improving your brain functioning:

"Stop it right now!"

According to Spitzer: "What we have learned is that exercise  and exposure to sunlight are the key things for better brain function." 

Come on, folks! It's a brilliant, sunny, summer Sunday in early August. Get out there - to the park, the beach, the country, to whatever your version of a natural paradise is, and heal yourself - of everything or anything that ails you.

Enjoy!



TODAY'S "BOOK OF MASTERY" QUOTE!

"How you decide to be in encounter with any situation will call to you the next series of events that you will learn through. Each time you make a choice to be a certain way, to align to the self in a certain way, you claim the potential of that choice to ricochet and propel you forward. So the choice that is made of how to perceive the self in regard to any situation calls to you how the response is manifested in the physical realm."

(From "The Book of Mastery" by Paul Selig)



SPACE IS OUR DESTINY!

30 Years ago today, the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up upon take-off. The country and the world was devastated, as was I. I so believed in humankind's calling to travel to the stars that when I heard naysayers proclaiming that we shouldn't send human beings into space, I had to write a letter - to The New York Times and to then President Reagan, which ended with me volunteering to go into space myself!
Here it is:
"Space is our destiny"
Published in the NY Times: February 9, 1986
To the Editor:
The shattering tragedy of the Challenger on Jan. 28 will no doubt stir up such sentiments as ''if man were meant to fly, he'd have wings.'' Some will say that we should send only unmanned probes into space.
I disagree. Human beings do have wings. Our wings are our minds, and our minds have always compelled us to reach out and look beyond the boundaries of the observable. We honor the spirit of Christopher Columbus for daring to explore ''the edge'' of a flat Earth, as we reveled in the spirit of Christa McAuliffe, who dared to teach from beyond the classroom.
The logic of statistical probability tells us that we are only one of perhaps millions of civilizations in this universe, that we most surely have brothers and sisters out there. We are compelled to meet them and know them because we are all part of the same whole. Perhaps we can be helped in our development someday by a more advanced civilization. Perhaps we can make a contribution. But we cannot stay at home, retreating into ourselves. People must be prepared to travel in space. It is our destiny.
I envied Mrs. McAuliffe. She was living out my greatest fantasy: to view the Earth as a whole planet from space. I am a psychiatric social worker, waiting for the day when a President or NASA asks for someone from the human-services field to volunteer for a similar mission. I am ready to go! 
PETER V. LOFFREDO New York, Jan. 29, 1986


TODAY'S "ONENESS" QUOTE!

"When you experience a particularly poignant response to a given situation—one that you may judge to be extreme—consider, before judging yourself too harshly, that what you may be feeling is depth of emotion you share mutually with an aspect of self that has been denied and was left behind along the way. By repressing the expression of the depths of your feeling, you only serve to prolong the separation between you and that aspect of self, and to invite repeat performances of scenarios which are calculated to produce the same emotional response. It is imperative that you open your heart to the very real sensations of hurt, sorrow, or outrage summoned to you by circumstances in the dramas in which you play a part. In so doing, you pave the way for the reintegration of a missing piece of your own being whose life theme may be the embodiment of those very responses, and who strives from his depths to transcend them."

("Oneness" by Rasha)

THE TRUTH ABOUT EVERYTHING, PART EIGHT: THERE IS MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR EVERYONE TO HAVE MORE THAN ENOUGH!



Okay, let's start at the top with this one... You exist because you are fully supported. That's it. The Universe, All That Is, your Higher Self, nature, life... however you want to frame it... fully supports you. Period. If you were not fully supported, you would not exist. In fact, you are so supported that you even get supported in your imaginings that you are not fully supported.

What? You say. People suffer, people die, people are broke or married to the wrong person or slaving away at jobs they hate... 

Yes, that's right. People do create suffering, and they are completely supported in so doing. People also create joy, abundance, health, pleasure, and also do things they love to do... and they are fully supported in that as well. We are always in a state of abundance, in other words. Some human beings create and experience an abundance of material things, love, adventures; others create and experience an abundance of lack and pain. In fact, if you believe in the illusion of death, as most do, you will have the death experience, and then set about experiencing whatever else you wish to experience after death. And so on.

You see, whatever you create, the Universe backs you up... completely! And without judgement. So, whether you put out a call through your inner intentions for impoverishment, illness and loneliness, or prosperity, vitality and deep love, the energetic "creation factory" you exist in will fill your order. When things "happen" in your life that you deem to be negative, how often do you have that "See, I knew it" feeling? Or that "This always happens to me" state of being? Do you believe that "Murphy's Law" applies to you? 

There's an entire Pathwork Guide Lecture on this subject: "The Superstition of Pessimism." Here's a passage from the lecture:

"The superstition of pessimism begins as a superstitious destructive playfulness, but then you get lost in its very painful effects. You may really believe in what you first assumed as a safety measure. However, denying the positive and believing in the worst to appease the gods, as it were, is destructive. You do not know the power of such thoughts. 
"The power of this game needs to be made conscious. It can apply to many things in your life. When you have an illness, it may apply to the healing. When you find yourself alone and unloved, you may playfully -- safely, as you think - express the belief that it will always be that way. When you lack funds or a fulfilling profession you say to yourself, 'I had better believe it must be that way, so maybe then it can come to me unexpectedly.' It is as though you hoped for some idealized parental figure to assuage your doubts, to come forth and tell you, 'No, no, my child, it is not that bad, it is all going to be wonderful.'
"Without knowing it, you dictate into your soul a belief creating circumstances that prove it. You then 'forget' that you had started this game in a spirit of superstition or perhaps in a spirit of emotional manipulation. You become so involved in what you have unwittingly created that you really begin to believe that the negative is the reality. What started out as a superstitious safety measure gradually becomes belief on another level of your consciousness. The belief creates the reality and you stay in exactly that position."

Look, here's the physics of it, folks, and this really runs through all of the Truths About Everything - everything is made up of particles and streams of energy. Everything. If you could put your hand or your shoe or a pencil or the air you breath under an electron microscope, what you would see is that we are all "composed" of particles and streams of energy living in a vast sea of that same energy. So, what makes one thing appear separate and different from another? Consciousness. Quantum physics has demonstrated that anything being observed is changed by the fact of it being observed.

Consciousness moves and arranges everything! Get it? The abundance that is all around you, that is yours for the having is... again... everything! All around you. 

If your intentions were free and clear, in other words, not clouded by old, conditioned beliefs in limitation, for example, you could literally turn lead into gold as the ancient alchemists were said to be able to do. You could end a drought by making it rain, as Native Americans were known to do. You could create or attract financial prosperity, vibrant health or the love of your life. And it's no secret.

There's more than enough for everyone to have more than enough. The vast, unlimited, infinite "stuff" of the Universe is yours to command. 

What are you waiting for?

SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY IS HAPPENING IN THE WORLD, AND MOST PEOPLE HAVEN'T NOTICED! (MORE ON: "IT'S GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME - THE TRUTH ABOUT 5D EARTH!")

Check out this piece by Gustavo Tanaka: "SOMETHING EXTRAORDINARY IS  HAPPENING IN THE WORLD, AND MOST PEOPLE HAVEN'T NOTICED!"

Here's a post headline from a few weeks ago, and a repost of the FPL piece (below): "IT'S GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME (THE TRUTH ABOUT 5D EARTH!)"

Global Poverty Will Hit New Low This Year, World Bank Says

Less than 10 percent of the world's population will be living in extreme poverty by the end of 2015, the World Bank forecast on Sunday. "This is the best story in the world today -- these projections show us that we are the first generation in human history that can end extreme poverty," World Bank President Jim Yong Kim said in a press release.

I recently reposted a piece (below) on the FPL blog entitled:  "IT'S GETTING BETTER ALL THE TIME (THE TRUTH ABOUT 5D EARTH!)"

Well, in addition to all of the actual statistical realities that confirm the positive way in which things are changing (and not always paid attention to by the media), and besides the fact that Iran will not be building nuclear weapons, that unemployment, crime and violence are all down dramatically, that gay marriage is now the law of the land, HERE'S one more: For the first time in 40 years, global carbon dioxide emissions from the energy sector did not increase.

Hey!

Are you still watching the news?

CNN? MSNBC? FOX?! Whew! That's so old school! Those channels, dimensionally speaking, are mostly showing 3D period pieces nowadays.

Maybe you've evolved to Comedy Central or HBO and getting your news with a good dose of humor. That's better, since those with a higher perspective can appreciate the humor in our repetitive melodramas and illusions.

This is from the Book, "ONENESS":

"From the perspective of the overview, one can enjoy the humor in the absurdity of some of it. And one can marvel at the antics and at one’s own blindness to what now seems obvious and avoidable."

Or perhaps, you've really changed the channel, and are getting your news from Gaiam TV and the Conscious Media Network, generally much more 5D, with only the occasional grim predictions, or maybe you've gone all the way and tuned into websites and Youtube videos that feature channeled information.

Folks, here are the facts, the verifiable truth: things are getting better! Demonstrably.

An article last Thanksgiving in the Washington Post, entitled "SEVEN GLOBAL TRENDS TO BE REALLY, REALLY THANKFUL FOR," starts with this:

"The facts, once you look at them, are indisputable. The world in the 21st century is really a remarkable place to live, and it's getting better all the time, even for its poorest inhabitants."

Check it out -

- Wars claim fewer lives today than ever in human history, by several orders of magnitude. (Here's the Associated Press, citing research by psychologist Steven Pinker: "Before there were organized countries, battles killed on average more than 500 out of every 100,000 people. In 19th century France, it was 70. In the 20th century with two world wars and a few genocides, it was 60. Now battlefield deaths are down to three-tenths of a person per 100,000.")

- Just in the last two decades, global poverty has declined by half.

- Also in the last two decades, the infant mortality rate has declined by about half, according to the World Health Organization.

- While the distribution of wealth in particular countries is becoming more unequal (Time to wake up, America!), if you take a broader view and compare the world's poor to the world's rich, inequality is actually declining.

- In spite of the news out of Ferguson, our neighborhoods are becoming steadily less segregated.

- The crime rate has been declining for the last 25 years, and is currently at the lowest rate in 50 years. National rates of gun homicide, in spite of what the news would lead you to believe, are down 49%, and in the last 20 years, the violent crime rate overall, including homicide, robbery, rape and aggravated assault, in the United States dropped by 48 percent. During the same period, the violent crime rate in New York City dropped by an amazing 71 percent! (NOTE: NYC happens, not coincidentally, to have the highest rate per capita of people in therapy.)

Read more from the WP piece HERE.

Yes, it's 5D, folks. I told you this was going to happen. And this is barely the tip of the iceberg, barely the beginning of the Golden Age.

Here's more from Oneness:

"Life is moving forward, dancing with the wind, and harmonizing with the joy in the newborn breath of every life form on the planet. This is the dance of Creation that beckons to you in these times. This is the reality that you are capable of manifesting at this crossroads of time and space that you perceive as your world. And this is the only moment that will take you the full distance, and deliver you directly unto your destination. This moment. This very moment. Right Now.

Embrace yourself, in these times, and acknowledge yourself for the extraordinary progress you are making, as a soul, in every waking moment. The very fact that you are drawn to reading these words attests to an openness on your part to aligning with the momentum of this multidimensional journey. Know that to have done so reflects great courage on your part. And that to continue to do so, despite the resistance of consensus thinking, puts you in the forefront of those destined to emerge in the new world relatively unscathed.

Your responsibility is to retain that clarity with respect to your own process and your own life issues. That is all."

That... is all!

GOD WHOPPERS!

Here are the top eight God whoppers human beings have made up (from the book, E-SQUARED by Pam Grout):

Whopper #1: God is a him. Even though the progressive churches sometimes refer to God as she, the FP doesn’t really have a gender. We certainly don’t talk about Mrs. Electricity or Mr. Gravity. The more appropriate pronoun would be it. The FP is a force field that runs the universe, the same energy source that grows flowers, forms scabs over skinned knees, and constantly pushes for wholeness. God is more like the force in Star Wars, a presence that dwells within us, a principle by which we live. That’s why Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader have become such a phenomenon. Star Wars is a myth that speaks to us at a deep, gut level. Some part of us knows that “the force” is with us and that we, through our words, thoughts, and deeds, create the world.

Whopper #2: God looks like ZZ Top, makes black check marks after your name, and is basically too busy working on world hunger to care about you. God, if you believe the accepted box, is a little like Boo Radley in To Kill a Mockingbird: this mysterious neighbor constantly peering out the window of his penthouse suite, waiting to catch us doing something “naughty, naughty.” We can’t really see him, but we’ve been properly warned that he’s there. Watching. Judging. Monitoring our every move. If you don’t follow this commandment or if you break that rule, God just might send his angel Secret Service after you to bop you on the head like Little Bunny Foo-Foo. 

Whopper #3: God plays favorites. The FP is a force field that’s equally available to everyone. It’s a natural capacity in all of us, not an exclusive gift bestowed upon a few. In fact, that is the primary lesson Jesus taught. God is within. You are part of God. You can perform miracles. To worship Jesus the way we do is a little like worshipping Benjamin Franklin because he first discovered electricity. Ben Franklin sent that kite up in an electric storm so we could use the principle he demonstrated. He didn’t do it so we’d build temples to him, paint pictures of him, and wear little commemorative keys around our necks. He wanted us to take the principle of electricity and use it—which we do to run radios and computers and air conditioners. Had we stopped with Ben’s discovery the way we did with Jesus’s discovery, we’d all be sitting in the dark. Benjamin Franklin didn’t invent electricity any more than Jesus invented spiritual principles. Lightning and the resulting electricity have always been available. We just didn’t realize it or know how to access it. Galileo didn’t invent gravity when he dropped the wooden ball off the leaning tower of Pisa. He just demonstrated it. Likewise, Jesus demonstrated spiritual principles that he wants us to use and develop. We’ve wasted 2,000 years worshipping this idol of him instead of using the principles he taught us. Look through the Bible and nowhere does Jesus say, “Worship me.” His call to us was “follow me.” There’s a big difference. By making Jesus out to be a hero, we miss the whole point. Jesus wasn’t saying, “I’m cool. Make statues of me; turn my birthday into a huge commercial holiday.” He was saying, “Here, look what is possible. Look what we humans are capable of.” Jesus is our brother, our legacy, the guy we’re supposed to emulate. What Jesus was trying to tell us is that the churches, the religious leaders, and all their blaring rhetoric has drowned out God’s truth. They’ve pulled the wool over our eyes by failing to mention the fact that the FP is not an object of worship, but a very real presence and a principle by which we should live.

Whopper #4: God rewards our suffering and gives brownie points for our sacrifice (better known as “Life sucks and then you die"). Many of us think life is some sort of boot camp for heaven. We believe this short life span is “only a test” for the paradise we’re eventually going to earn. If we hang on and bear it, we’ll someday walk through those pearly gates and be happy. These errors in thinking have been condensed into living facts. Nothing is plainer than the inevitability of sorrows and trials. But what if it isn’t necessary? What if there is no reason to be poor? Or get sick? Or do anything but live an abundant, exciting life? What if these tragic, difficult lives are another rumor made up by the churches and cemented into our consciousness by years and years of conditioning? What I’d like to suggest is that this heaven you’re waiting for is available now. And that you’ve been sold a bill of goods about who you are and what is possible. 

Whopper #5: God is just so demanding. The FP doesn’t judge. It doesn’t punish. It doesn’t think, Well, Sammy C. was a good boy yesterday, helping that little old lady cross the street. I think I’ll answer his prayer about winning the lottery. Those are thoughts Clarence Thomas might think. The FP doesn’t need anything. It requires nothing of us. It makes no demands. It doesn’t like Mother Teresa more than Celine Dion. Only misinformed humans, scrambling desperately to make sense of their world, came up with a God who plays eenie-meenie-minie-mo with our lives, a God who likes and dislikes the same people we do. Our fear has trapped us into a box that plays out our very limited perception. 

Whopper #6: You don’t want to ask too much from God; you certainly wouldn’t want to bug him. As I’ve already pointed out, the FP is not a person; therefore you cannot bug him. The FP is a power, an unseen energetic force. It isn’t finite or limited, so you certainly couldn’t ask too much of it. As the old saying goes, you can take an eyedropper or a bucket to the ocean. The ocean doesn’t care. If anything, we don’t use the FP power nearly enough. This is an all-powerful force we’re talking about here, not some last-minute relief team that comes in to pay the mortgage. The FP is not an adversary that has to be coaxed to the bargaining table. 

Whopper #7: God is just so vague. Au contraire. Once you get rid of the black cloud of rumors and half truths that hide your awareness, you’ll find the unseen force communicates just as clearly as Dr. Phil. Once you rid yourself of the blocks, you’ll be shown exactly what to do and how to do it. Again, we need to condition ourselves to think of God more like we think of electricity. Electricity doesn’t care who plugs in a curling iron. Electricity doesn’t need proof we’re good enough to make toast. 

Whopper #8: God only answers when he’s good and ready. There is never a time when God or “the force” isn’t guiding you. And you do not have to wait for any green lights or “get out of jail free” cards. The big guy is available 24/7 once you’re ready to focus your full attention on it. The FP’s guidance happens (as they say about … well, something else)—through a song lyric on the radio, by a phone call from a long-lost friend. The trick is to pay attention, trust, and as I will continue to repeat, focus your full attention on it. And while we’re on the topic of God’s will, let’s get this out on the table. There is no place in our updated picture of God for a hell of everlasting torment or for a sadist who would or could attempt to put you there. Nor is there any room for the idea that sickness or deformity or death or poverty or limitation of any kind is the will of God. The will of God, for those who insist on using that term, is the ceaseless longing of the spirit in you to become all you’re capable of being. Amen.

TODAY'S MLK QUOTE!

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality."
Martin Luther King, Jr.

THE JOY OF BEING WRONG!

Many people throughout the years have suggested that I write a book. I've never dismissed the notion, but I haven't yet felt the calling to do so in the way that I have felt called to write on this blog, or to write film and television scripts. Nonetheless, I have thought about it, and often when I do, I think of titles. "Full Permission Living" would, of course, be an obvious one, as might "The Truth About Everything."

One of my long-standing favorites, however, is this one:

"The Joy of Being Wrong!"

Yes. The joy of being wrong is... exactly that. A joy. A joy, PL? Yes, because the "need to be right" rests on so many illusions that are out of alignment with the deeper truths of reality that it can literally become the bane of our existence.

Why?

Well, first of all, because the notion of being "right" is rooted in dualistic consciousness, in the illusion of separateness, rather than oneness. In 3D, that illusion was a mainstay of the game. Good versus evil, right versus wrong, my country, politics or religion versus yours, my needs versus your needs, on and on it goes. As a result, in that game, the best case scenarios involved negotiating and compromising away your needs and desires, and the worst meant regular bouts of conflict, battle, and even war ultimately.

Secondly, being right means someone or something else has to be wrong, and so, differences become points of contention and subject to judgment, rather than opportunities for learning, incorporating and enjoying variety. Differences, in other words, must be corrected, not experienced with curiosity or positive interest, sapping much of the richness of diversity out of life.

Third of all, being right is rooted in the energy of pride, the deadliest of the "Seven Deadly Sins." Pride does indeed come before a fall, as the saying goes. It is a house of cards that many relationships and empires have been built upon and collapsed under the weight of. In the most extreme cases, as in the Psychopathic Character Structure, pride is a matter of life and death, where embarrassment or "losing face" is literally a cause to kill and/or die for.

I regularly would say to the members of my groups and classes in a moment when pride and self-righteousness were flaring up, "You have a choice. You could be right, or you could be happy."

Much more to be said on this subject, but suffice it to say for now, folks, discover the joy of being wrong and heave a great sigh of relief... unless you still would like to enjoy another duel or two.


TODAY'S "THE END OF SYMPTOMS AS WE KNEW THEM" QUOTE!

"You will begin to see the so-called 'symptoms' of a physical condition that you have been harboring as the manifestation of the thought form that precipitated it. And that level of spontaneous realization will serve as the gateway through which you will be able to liberate yourself from a multifaceted vibrational condition. The outward manifestation of a particular set of symptoms is your cue to delve into your own psyche and to begin to explore the parameters with which you have structured your life experience. These are unprecedented occurrences. And you should be prepared to experience unprecedented results, both in your own experience and in the experience of others for whom you may be facilitating. The dramatic remission of symptoms characteristic of this process is a phenomenon that will defy the scientific laws that govern your concept of what is and is not possible. The so-called 'miracles' that may once have prompted reactions of awe and wonderment are occurrences to be expected by those who have journeyed to the outer reaches of the human condition in these times. Do not be tempted to limit what is possible, in terms of spontaneous recovery, on the basis of what you may have been taught. There are no such limits—not in the new world you are helping to birth, simply by being present."
(From "ONENESS" by Rasha)

WHO KILLED THE KENNEDY'S...? ADDENDUM TO: "YOU SAY IT'S WORLD PEACE YOU WANT? LOOK INSIDE!"

These are some amazing lyrics, surely channeled by Mick Jagger, a few decades ago now, that recently came into my consciousness  and beautifully connect to what I wrote in the recent FPL piece: "YOU SAY IT'S WORLD PEACE YOU WANT? LOOK INSIDE!" (below) It is also relevant to the moral outrage many people are feeling in response to recent events like the ruthless Paris terror attacks, rampant police brutality incidents and Donald Trump's craven rantings in general.

Here's Jagger:

I shouted out,
Who killed the Kennedys?
When after all
It was you and me

Now, how many times have you heard that passage and just continued on bopping and singing along without considering what he was saying. We killed the Kennedy's. Me and you. Not just a crazed lone gunman, nor a nefarious group of secret conspirators. Me and you. 

You and me.

Jagger brilliantly goes on:

Just as every cop is a criminal
And all the sinners saints

Woah! Not one or the other. Not a cop or a criminal, not a sinner or a saint.

You see, folks, the time that we are in, the dimensional shift of consciousness that is taking place, heralded by many songwriters and musicians that came out of the Sixties, is towards the full awareness of oneness, towards the realization that everyone is connected, all are part of the greater whole of collective consciousness. The more aware of this we become, the more we can truly change our world by changing ourselves, by waking up. (See the Hundredth Monkey below)

So, the next time you're listening to the Stones' "Sympathy for the Devil," and Mick Jagger proclaims that "What's puzzling you is the nature of my game," consider that the nature of the game is seeing everyone as a reflection of an aspect of yourself. And read or reread the post below.

YOU SAY IT'S WORLD PEACE YOU WANT? LOOK INSIDE!

This is yet another quote from the extremely quotable book, "ONENESS":

"You may ask then, what are you to do when confronted with the opposing viewpoints of another being or an expression of collective will. You begin not with the scrutiny of the other party’s motives, but with your own. You begin by digging honestly beneath the surface of the stance you’ve taken and exploring the real basis for your own position. Chances are, if you approach this exercise in full honesty with yourself, you will recognize a fortress built on a foundation of ego—an expression of will rooted in the fear of suppression by the will and ego of another. This is hardly the recipe for Oneness—much less for the world peace to which you all pay much lip service. Stop looking for the self-serving motives of the other side and begin looking at the self-serving motives that underlie your own actions. That is the basis for the true harmony you all yearn for at the deepest level."


Now, take a deep breath, and the next time you get fired up about the police, racism, misogyny, terrorism, greed or corruption...reread the above. The greatest, most worthwhile, transformational gift you can give yourself, and the world, is to see your reflection in everyone, everything, and every event in your field of vision.


What, PL?! I'm not a racist or misogynist. I'm not violent, and I certainly have never killed anybody or stolen anyone's pension or 401K. Perhaps not. But... do you still adhere to a consciousness of separation or lack, believing in your own abandonment or "bad luck" or the superstition of pessimism? Do you still believe that your worth as a being has to be earned, and then measured by other people's outward opinions of you? Do you still indulge in anger, resentment, grudges, or perhaps self-pity and victimhood as a way of stimulating yourself and filling the void of what you perceive to be the unknown? 


If your honest answer is yes, and you can sincerely, with compassion, without judgment, admit that inner state of being, then forgive yourself, erasing the karma left over from 3D, your life and interactions with others will come into a state of harmony. And then, as the Hundredth Monkey, you will change the world.


No joke.


1ST WAVERS, LISTEN UP - YOU'RE NOT LATE. YOU'RE EARLY!

For those of you born 50 years or so ago, you are the "midwives," the coffee servers for those just now waking up or for those just now incarnating. You may feel that you are behind the times, that you are too late to experience what you desire to achieve in this life, but in fact you are, if anything, a little early for your heart's desire. Fear not.

Here's a passage from "Oneness" by Rasha on the matter: 

"Generations to come may speculate on what it was like to be alive in these times. For, your history will allude to conditions that they will not be able to comprehend. The world as you know it will undergo radical transformations in the times to come. And the foundation upon which you have built your understandings of the nature of your reality will have changed so dramatically that one would be apt to question whether it was the same world at all. Indeed, that is the very nature of the process. For the world as you know it to be is, in fact, dematerializing in the wake of the momentum that is driving all Creation.  
"The changes are taking form in subtle increments. And often one does not even notice that a significant shift has occurred. But, from the perspective of a broader vision, one will be able to look back upon these times with wonderment. And those of you who will have retained your physical form will have fascinating stories to tell as to how these changes came to be. Younger beings, who will only be able to imagine life under such conditions, will marvel at how such memories are even possible. You, whose very presence will attest to the extent of the journey in consciousness humankind has undertaken, see these days of transformation from a markedly different perspective. 
"For, collectively, you are the midwives who are assisting with the birthing of a new reality. Your willingness to be in physical form during these changes is an act of courage. For, it would have been far easier to wait until the dust had settled and simply manifest into more favorable circumstances. You, who read these words, are among those who chose to experience the transformational journey in physical form and to have the experience of physical ascension. 
"Future generations will have made preparations for incarnation into a dramatically different world. Their natural inclination to be less reactive reflects the fact that many of these younger beings have a dramatically different vibrational constitution than you do. Their energy fields are not cluttered with unresolved emotional blockages, and life for the young, in general, flows more smoothly than it did for you at their stage of development."



REMINDER: YOU CAN'T WALK ON HOT COALS BY PASTING ONE BELIEF OVER ANOTHER!

You see, the difference between really working on, challenging and releasing your inner beliefs and suppressed feelings, and just trying to superimpose new beliefs over other ones is that... you burn your feet!

Check out this news item:

SAN FRANCISCO -- Fire officials said 21 people at an event hosted by motivational speaker Tony Robbins suffered burns while walking across hot coals and three of the injured were treated at hospitals. The injuries took place during the first day Thursday of a four-day event at the San Jose Convention Center hosted by Robbins called "Unleash the Power Within." Most of those hurt had second and third degree burns, said San Jose Fire Department Capt. Reggie Williams. Walking across hot coals on lanes measuring 10 feet long and heated to between 1,200 to 2,000 degrees provides attendees an opportunity to "understand that there is absolutely nothing you can't overcome," according to the motivational speaker's website.

Yeah, thanks for the demonstration, Tony!

Listen folks, it is certainly possible to uproot and overcome any belief system, including major collective beliefs like gravity, the need to breathe air and the destructive power of fire on human flesh. What is not possible is to do the above by simply wishing you can or believing in a huckster's rantings when you haven't done the self-work necessary to be that transcendent.

Careful!




LANGUAGE IS NOT OUR FIRST LANGUAGE! (OR LEAVE YOUR PARENTS AND KIDS ALONE FOR THE HOLIDAYS!)

Okay, then, the two most guilt-trip-ridden, obligation-driven holidays are over, Christmas, of course, far surpassing Thanksgiving, and any other holiday, not only in guilt, but also in sudden deaths from heart attacks.(For one explanation of why we do this to ourselves, see the FPL piece: "DON'T LET YOUR HEART BREAK ON CHRISTMAS!")

Another reason we end up undermined (and overfed ) during the holidays, and in general throughout our lives, is that we don't listen to what our relatives and others are saying to us... energetically.

Mom might say things like: "You never know how long I'm going to be around, so you better come home for the holidays or..."

Dad might say: "Remember, your family members are the only ones you can ever truly count on being there for you, so..."

You might say to yourself: "I don't think we got enough presents for the kids. They're going to feel deprived."

Ready to click on the guilt machine, yet? Well, wait before you do and ask yourself this: How do you feel when someone lays a guilt trip on you? Do you feel an increase in your desire to engage with them, an excitement about visiting them more often, joyful in your gift giving? Of course not, unless you're stuck within the confines of your masochistic character structure, and love feeling guilty and anxious.

No. In truth, when someone guilt-trips you, you feel repelled by their attempts to manipulate you, don't you? And the idea of seeing them becomes less joyful and more burdensome. Yet, over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house you go, and on into debt from breaking the bank on Amazon Prime (Don't you love that same day delivery?!).

Well, guess what? Your feelings of repulsion are not a measure of your "selfishness," but rather an accurate energetic/emotional response to the true message that the guilt-tripper is sending to you energetically, a message that you're ignoring because you're paying more attention to the words than the energy. That's right, when Mom threatens you with her pending death, or Dad threatens you with your pending abandonment, they are actually saying "Don't come home for the holidays. Stay away. Go. Do your own thing. Live your life. We spent two decades taking care of you. Now, we don't want to cook or put up a tree. We want to go on a cruise for the holidays. Alone. Leave the nest already!"

And when you're dumping tons of toys on your kids and you notice that they get increasingly agitated as the present opening goes on and on, it's because energetically, without words, you are saying to them: "Aren't I a good dad? Don't you love Mommy? Won't you always appreciate me? A lot?!" In other words, you're telling your kids: "Giving you all these gifts is a real hassle and expense, and I wish I didn't have to do it to earn your love!"

So, here's the news - You don't!

First of all, "All Love Is Unconditional," so you can't earn more. (See FPL"S Truth About Everything: Part TWO)  And like all animals and all other living beings, a human being's first language is energy. Not English, Spanish, Arabic, etc. Our first language, and the way we truly communicate to each other, first and foremost, is with vibrations of energy. "Vibes." But unlike animals, human beings have egos and intellects that can override our nature and inherent energy sensors when engaging with others. As a result, through spoken language, we communicate superficially from beliefs and social conditioning that are very often at odds with how we really feel, and therefore, against our well-being and the greater good of others.

So, folks, don't go home for the holidays or spend your hard-earned money on light sabers or selfie sticks. Have some Johnny Walker Gold Reserve by the fire with your lover, let your kids actually have the time and space to play with one or two thoughtful presents, and leave your parents alone!



THE POWER OF DOING NOTHING... POWERFULLY!

Are you discovering the power of doing nothing? Many people are.

Remember the frequently referred to FPL post from January of 2013 - "IT'S 2013! WHICH EARTH ARE YOU ON?!" - in which the new rules of 5th Dimensional Consciousness (5D) were outlined? Right up top was Rule #1: "Murphy's Law Is Officially Reversed." (In other words, in 5D, "everything that can go right, will go right... if you let it.")

Well, 3 years later, many FPL readers, and people I know and work with, have been experiencing this new rule at work in the practical experiences of their everyday lives. So much so, in fact, that complaints are coming up in sessions that more or less boil down to: "It's too easy!" "I didn't actually do anything!" "Things just fell into place!" "Things just worked out!" Etc.

Sounds funny, right? But the truth is, synchronicity ("the simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection," according to the dictionary) is the way of the Universe. There are no true coincidences, and this has always been the way things worked, only now, in 5D, we're becoming aware of it, and so becoming able to call upon it for manifestation purposes in our lives.

Many people call these synchronistic events "miracles," but here's my favorite quote on miracles:

"Miracles are the result of nature unimpeded."

Get that? Reread it:

"Miracles are the result of nature unimpeded."

In other words, things "working out" for your greatest good, for your highest excitement, for your fulfillment and self-actualization, even in ways you couldn't predict or imagine specifically, is just... natural! You don't have to do anything in the sense of forcing, willing, demanding, pleading or insisting, all approaches rooted in the ego, of course. You see, it's the ego complaining that things are "too easy," because it knows it is out of a job in 5D. It knows no other way than struggling, battling, overcoming, winning or losing, etc. Then, onto the next contest. So 3D!

But there are actually things to do in 5D. There are actions to take. It's not a passive creative process. But it looks different than the old way. The "doing" required to make things happen in 5D looks more like this:

Clear - Intend - Let go - Follow-up.

Clear your consciousness of the remnants of 3D, egoic thinking and beliefs and suppressed feelings in the body;
Intend for yourself in your meditations whatever it is you truly desire, and imagine it happening;
Let go by employing the energy of allowing and receiving, without expectations or fear;
Follow-up with action when your Higher Self and the Universe give you signs and create opportunities for you.

One of my favorite books and movies, as many FPL readers know, is "The Legend of Baggar Vance," by Steven Pressfield.

Here's Baggar:

“There's a perfect shot out there tryin' to find each and every one of us... Now it's somewhere... in the harmony... of All That Is... All That Was... All That Will Be... All we got to do is get ourselves out of its way, to let it choose us.


Thanks, BV!
