THE DARKEST DAY BEFORE THE BRIGHTEST DAWN!

So, today is the shortest day of the year, AND the darkest day in 500 years. Feels right doesn't it? But what does that mean? There is a saying: "It is darkest before the dawn." As it was heralded 50 years ago - "This is the dawning of the Age of Aquarius." So, wake up, my friends, smell the coffee, be of good cheer. Starting tomorrow, the days begin having more and more daylight.



YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, NO EXCEPTIONS!

There it is. I said it. Unvarnished. Straight up. Unequivocal. And just to be clear, I didn't make this up, and I'm not the only one stating this axiom out loud these days.

YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY, ONE HUNDRED PERCENT, NO EXCEPTIONS!

Your finances, your love life, your health, yes, of course, most of you at least buy that you create those things if you're reading this blog. But those are the easy ones. The "one hundred percent" part - that's the challenge. 

The subway running late, the guy sitting next to you sneezing on the subway, the weather when you get off the subway? Yep. All your creations.

The stranger you bump into at the coffee shop who just so happens to tell you about a dream job opportunity, the bank error that credits your account with exactly the amount of money you needed to make your rent, the long lost friend you were just thinking about who calls you up? Yep. All your creations.

Don't believe it? Doesn't matter. Doesn't change anything. It's just the way it is. 

Oh, and why am I posting this today? Because in short order, you will come to know it for yourself. This is happening.

Listen to this channeled conversation on the subject. For a condensed version, start at around the 25-minute mark, and particularly focus in at the 30-minute mark: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9RavjBfS0XY



STABILIZE YOUR EMOTIONS AND BECOME UNIFIED!

This short passage is from ONENESS, by Rasha, the quintessential book on the run-up to 5D that we're all engaged in right now, consciously or not. It may take a couple of readings to understand what is being said here. 

Check it out:

"The pathways of the emotions you have worked so hard to stabilize are those upon which your consciousness will travel in connecting you with heightened levels of awareness. For it is your emotional foundation that unites all aspects of the consciousness that make up your multidimensional identity. That foundation, once cleared of the ego-based need to respond to provocation, serves as the pathway upon which all aspects of your multidimensional self unite in Oneness, and recognize that common bond as one that is shared with All Creation."

Here's my understanding - 

Human beings have emotions, and that isn't a mistake or a distortion. It is our nature in physical form here on Planet Earth. In fact, according to some sources, Earth is known in our galaxy as the "emotion planet," and it's why so many choose to incarnate here. 

Yet, human beings experience many emotions as unpleasant, especially the three main "negative" emotions: fear, anger and sadness. So, when Oneness says it is our "emotional foundation" that unites all aspects of our identity, does that mean that emotional turmoil and pain are necessary to self-actualization? 

No. Or at least not ultimately.

A significant point made in the above passage is that we become unified by doing the hard work of "stabilizing" our emotions through the clearing of "ego-based" provocations that stir up irrational fear, anger and sadness. You see, the three negative emotions, in their purest form, do have a place in our make-up. But the instances that call for them are rare. 

Fear is meant to be reserved for situations of actual danger, like being shot at or chased by a wild animal, propelling us into instant fight-or-flight mode. An imagined future rejection from a prospective date or job opportunity doesn't meet the criteria of dangerous. 

Anger is a powerful emotion reserved for situations in which you are actually being attacked physically, causing adrenaline to be secreted, which energizes and focuses you on stopping the attack through quick, forceful action. Anger is not meant for moments when your partner is hogging the remote or when you can't find a parking space. 

Sadness, in its healthy form, is what we naturally feel during an actual loss due to some kind of major life change, like death or the end of a relationship, even a graduation. Tears and crying are the ways through which we then cleanse our bodies of the physical emotional residue. But sadness is not an appropriate reaction to gaining a few pounds of body fat or getting a stain on your favorite T-shirt.

So, back to Oneness, stabilizing your emotions through self-work means that you are learning not to be provoked into feeling things because your ego is telling you erroneously that you are in danger, or that you are being attacked, or that you're going through a major loss when you're not. Once you've accomplished that stability, which means you're mostly feeling joy, love and pleasure, and rarely feeling fear, anger and sadness, you will unify yourself as the "multidimensional" being that you truly are.

HAPPY EASTER!

TODAY'S "YOU CREATE YOUR OWN REALITY" QUOTE!

"Any time you experience pain and discomfort, fatigue or depression, it is because you are perceiving something from the victim-perpetrator mentality."
(Wendy Kennedy, channeling the Pleiadians)

TODAY'S "ONENESS" QUOTE!

"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."

("oneness," by Rasha)

IT WAS THIRTY-SIX YEARS AGO TODAY: DECEMBER 8, 1980!

"It's funny how one insect can damage so much grain."

That is a line from Elton John's song of grief, "Empty Garden," written about the murder of Elton's friend, John Lennon, thirty-six years ago today, December 8.

Seven years ago, on 12/8/09, the pilot script of my TV series, "CITY ROCK," was performed live at the Cherry Lane Theatre, directed by Paul Michael Glaser. John Lennon's death plays prominently in the story of "Frank Cello" and his team of misfit warriors, named after the street teen who died on Frank's watch on the streets of Times Square in 1981. I hadn't consciously realized until the night of the performance last year that I had scheduled it to be on the anniversary of Lennon's death.

I had just finished reading a great new book today about that death and that day, entitled simply "December 8, 1980: The Day John Lennon Died," by Keith Elliot Greenberg. The book dramatically follows the utterly different paths of John Lennon and Mark David Chapman, John's assassin, paths that somehow brought them together on that fateful night 36 years ago to shock the entire world. It is quite gripping to experience the trajectories of these two souls as they arrive to an incredible endpoint in their starkly unique lives, in front of the Dakota that December night.

Just as I can still remember what I was doing, as a fourth grader, on the day John F. Kennedy was killed, and where I was and who I was with on the morning of September 11, 2001, I remember distinctly the details of the night of December 8, 1980.

I was riding a bus home from the evening shift at Covenant House, the then famous shelter for runaway teens in Times Square, when it was still a seedy Mecca for nefarious characters and lost souls from all over the country. I worked there per diem as a social worker, supplementing the income from my full-time day job at another social service agency. On Thanksgiving of that particular year, just 2 weeks before John's murder, I worked the evening shift at the shelter serving a sumptuous dinner to the kids that had been donated to Covenant House by John and Yoko. Each place setting had a card with artwork from John decorating it and a greeting from John, Yoko and Sean Lennon.

On that bus on December 8, around midnight, I was pretty much alone, lost in thought when the bus driver addressed me: "Did you hear what happened?" He asked. I just kind of mumbled, not really wanting to engage him. "They shot Lennon," he said. I thought to myself, "Oh boy, this guy's crazy," because I thought he was talking about Lenin, the communist leader who died almost sixty years earlier. The driver persisted, rocking my world. "Yep. They shot John Lennon."

I could feel the blood drain out of my face.

Impossible.

"They shot John Lennon?!"

What?! Who?! Why?!!?


Interesting, isn't it, that the bus driver used the pronoun "they?" It's not an uncommon usage, but who are "they?" Chapman clearly killed John and acted alone in doing so, but yet, when the driver said "They," it seemed somehow appropriate. On 9/11/01, the person who first told me about the attack also said "They flew planes into the World Trade Center," even though it was not yet known who actually did it.

Who are "they?"

Well, "they" are "us."

As John Lennon himself once wrote:

"I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together."

John at least came to understand something in his short time on Earth about the true oneness that exists in All That Is. Many of his lyrics, during and after the Beatle era, reflect some of that understanding, although his life - and death - was one of dualistic turmoil.

Reading Greenberg's book and other chronicles of John Lennon's life reveals a human being with a great deal of unresolved pain and anger and fear, a history of brilliance and incredible accomplishments combined with great sadness, violence, jealousy and substance abuse. By choosing a lifetime in which he would be so monumentally famous, and die so infamously, you might say that John "volunteered" to play out the dualistic drama for us in his physical and emotional life, even as he sang about the true nature of our oneness and the synchronicity of everything that occurs:

"Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be."

Nothing truly, irrevocably tragic occurs, folks. We desire as souls to experience everything that we can conceive of, to know everything there is to know. In this "experiment" - three-dimensional physical reality in a linear time continuum - we are exploring how love, the essence of All That Is, can be expressed. It is intense. And perhaps, we are almost done with this particular experiment, which may be why so many feel ready to move on from the experience of separateness.

Maybe that's what John was asking us to imagine - no Heaven, no hell, no religion, no country, no possessions... in other words, a world without duality.

"All you need is love."

ADVANCED 5D LISTENING ON THE ELECTION OF 2016!

THIS is hot off the "interstellar press," Darryl Anka channeling Bashar on the U.S. presidential election of 2016. If you want to stay angry and depressed, don't listen. If you want to feel excited, positive and energized, listen up!

READY TO CROSS THE FINISH LINE?!

To those of you who have done a significant amount of self-work and arrived to a place where you are conscious of your old beliefs, images and memories, where you are connected to your feelings and can express them, and where you no longer are overly focused on what others think about you, but yet you feel stuck in some area of your life, this is for you.

You are at the threshold of a major shift, THE shift, really, the big one, a dimension transition of unprecedented proportions to 5th Dimensional consciousness, a transition to life in the "Thousand Year Golden Age" that lies just ahead. 


If you feel unable to cross the "finish line," however, unable to experience a truly different outer reality in which you are living your highest excitement, you most likely are grappling with resistance manifesting as a fear of the "Unknown" and a refusal to let go. This is different than resistance born out of unconscious, unresolved childhood wounds and the resultant character structures. 

This resistance is will-driven, in the present moment, rooted in an unwillingness to let go of familiar (not familial) comforts and attachments, whether those attachments are to pleasure or suffering or an identity. To go forward smoothly, with grace and ease, now requires a letting go of all attachments, ALL attachments, and practicing acceptance and gratitude. Now, mind you, if you are meant to have something in your life for your greatest good and highest excitement, letting go of your attachment to that person, place or thing won't mean you "lose" it. It just means you won't be clinging to it out of fear.


So, okay, ready? Here's how you go forward - In each moment, from the menu of choices that are right in front of you, choose the option that represents your highest preference, without insistence that the outcome of that choice has to look a certain way. 


That's it! One more time - In each moment, from the menu of choices that are right in front of you, choose the option that represents your highest preference, without insistence that the outcome of that choice has to look a certain way.


Got it? Good. See you on the other side!





A GLIMPSE INTO THE EXPERIENCE OF ASCENSION!

Read this! Take your time and read this! Really! More than once. It will help.

"Integrating fragmented aspects of consciousness. Attaining the perspective of one’s own expanded, multidimensional self. You have come to this place in time for a multiplicity of reasons. You have come for the opportunity to transcend the parameters that define your existence. And, in the same breath, you have come to deepen your connection with the interwoven aspects of your beingness that give your life definition in the truest sense. You have come to this experience you know as your life in order to be able to reject, completely, the consensus view of reality imprinted upon you since birth, and to replace that structure of understanding with a perspective that totally transcends it. This is the first time in your personal history as an incarnate individual that your conscious awareness has been augmented with levels of energy that enable you to transcend your physical senses. This is the first incarnation in which you have been able to reinforce intuitive knowingness with experiential knowingness. This is the moment you have been waiting for, for eons of existence. For, this is the lifetime that will catapult you beyond all you know to a depth of awareness and understanding you are as yet unable to fathom. Trust that this process, in which you are, by now, deeply invested, is unfolding as it is meant to. And that everything is, indeed, in “Divine order.” You are a spark of Divinity in the throes of activation. The programming for the process is deep-seated within you. And it will unfold at its own pace, regardless of steps you might be encouraged to take to accelerate that momentum. You may experience a sense of reassurance by participating in group activities targeted at expanding your consciousness. And you may, indeed, experience sensations indicative of amplified levels of energy during such activities. But know that the results of such exercises are, for the most part, short-lived. For, the foundation for sustaining that energy is built from within. And the momentum of your growth is rooted in stillness. There is a place within the depths of one’s being where opportunities that defy linear logic are able to unfold. The key to maximizing the pace of your process lies in the degree to which you are able to let go and cease directing the scenarios of your drama. Allow life to unfold for you. And recognize the potential in the synchronicity that presents itself. Note the perfection in the results. And consider the possibility that your best interests are best served by a level of awareness that transcends your conscious mind. Recognize your tendencies, rooted in fear of a less than optimum outcome of your efforts, to attempt to direct that outcome. Dispense with your prior understanding of how results are manifested. And allow the circumstances that present themselves to nudge you in the direction of your highest possible good. As you become more comfortable with the process, you will begin to notice how easily the opportunities flow and how effortlessly you are able to manifest results that serve you at the highest level. You stand at the threshold of a grand adventure. And the extent to which you are able to experience the fullness of that journey is determined by the extent to which you are able to let go of the scenarios that no longer serve you. You have noticed, with rare exception, that the circumstances of your life are unraveling at an unprecedented pace. You have begun to question what is happening, as the structure of life as you know it, begins to crumble. You look around you for explanations. And you probe your own circumstances for clues that would justify the destruction of the familiar. At first, you may resist the impetus to dematerialize what has been the foundation of your reality. In time, you will come to recognize the inevitability of the momentum that guides you."

("Oneness" by Rasha)


STILL BELIEVE IN SEPARATION? IF SO, THIS ELECTION IS THE RESULT!

"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.
The need to be 'right' in all instances, and to defend that perspective at all costs, suddenly gives way to the need for harmony and for a spontaneous perception of the perspective of the adversary. The need to triumph over another, regardless of the circumstance, is based upon the needs of ego. And this ego-centered state of separation is the one overriding factor that seeks to undermine the impetus toward unification in Oneness, toward which all energy throughout Creation is focused. The process of relinquishing one’s conditioned attachment to learned responses fostered by ego, has been a gradual one. Now, the momentum of accelerated vibration results in dramatic shifts in consciousness in all who are attuned to these changes. Interactions are more intense, and the emotions evoked are calculated to take the underlying point of the exercise to the extreme, such that interactions appear to be caricatures of behaviors that might be expected, ordinarily. When the heat of the moment passes, one is left to wonder 'what on earth that was all about.”

TODAY'S "ONENESS" QUOTE!

"In this moment, you are all you are yet to become. For “time,” as you know it to be, is not a factor in what is transpiring in what you consider to be “the Now.” All that is to happen has happened, energetically. What is left to achieve is the physical manifestation of that expression of energy. This would explain why, at times, you are seemingly drawn to a particular set of circumstances. This would explain why you experience what you would consider to be “synchronicity.” And this would explain why you experience a sense of disharmony when you resist suggestions that nudge you to act upon certain opportunities."

("ONENESS" by Rasha)

MORE THAN HALF OF YOUR THERAPY ON POLITICS? DOESN'T MATTER!

Heard a very interesting bit on National Public Radio yesterday. A panel of psychotherapists were reporting that in 4 out of every 7 therapy sessions in recent times, patients were talking about the 2016 election. Thought of another way, that's 57% of the precious 50 minutes someone in therapy has to discuss their relationships and emotional lives, their careers and finances, and all the vicissitudes of their inner lives. 29 therapeutic minutes being spent on the 3D spectacle known as politics.

There's an article on the subject in the Washington Times entitled: "Sick: Americans now suffering from ‘election-related stress."

"Is the election making you sick?” asks Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency room physician at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City, and contributor to Forbes magazine. He calls the combination of election and nonstop media attention a “life stressor” with serious physical effects. Dr. Glatter counsels voters to be alert for increased blood pressure, fluttering heartbeats, headaches, nausea and other telltale symptoms of “election-related stress” — and seek relief through less exposure to news coverage and social media. Yoga, meditation and even psychotherapy could help as well, he says.

Even psychotherapy?! Come one, Doc, those last few things are what will constitute real healing methods in 5D.




But that's not the point of this piece. The point is that while talking about the election or politics or anything else going on in mass consciousness is valid fodder for self-reflection ( the FPL post: "YOU SAY IT'S WORLD PEACE YOU WANT? LOOK INSIDE!"), in 5D, which is where we are inevitably going, it just doesn't matter.

Who won the last debate? Who will win tonight's? Who will win the election? In the words of Bill Murray in "Meatballs," the classic comedy from 1979: "It just doesn't matter!"

Why not? Because the run-up to 5D consciousness is irrevocably in progress. It's happening. Period. There is no turning back, no regressing. We have already crossed the threshold. 3D is no more. And with the advent of the last quarter of 2016, the uprush to 5D is accelerating and going to continue to accelerate.

The only thing that remains a variable is how we're going to experience the acceleration - kicking and screaming, struggling against the current, or peacefully, serenely going with the flow. And that will be an individual decision first, a collective decision second.

So, if we collectively need a Donald Trump presidency to increase the pace of our awakening, we will have it. If, on the other hand, we are, en mass, waking up gracefully, but with all due diligence to our self-work, the ride will be smoother, and we won't need a Trump in the White House. We may have a Clinton, or maybe someone yet to surprise us, but it doesn't matter.

Do you work and watch what happens!

HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO SAY IT - EVERYTHING IS GETTING BETTER!!

THIS IS FROM A PIECE IN ROLLINGSTONE MAGAZINE THIS WEEK CALLED "THE AGE OF FEAR."

THIS is from FPL!

READ IT!!

EIGHT DAYS A WEEK!

Recently watched Ron Howard’s documentary: “The Beatles: Eight Days a Week - The Touring Years.”

Although almost everything that could be documented about the Beatles world-changing, meteoric rise to prominence and dominance in pop music and our social consciousness has been written about, recorded or filmed, it still is exciting when a new telling of the tale comes out. Ron Howard focuses on the brief period of time that the band played concerts live, roughly 5 years if you count the small clubs in England and Germany, and makes clear why The Beatles couldn’t possibly continue touring. Besides the “mania” that kept them running from cars, trains and planes onto stages and into hotels through back entrances, the screaming frenzy when they played live overshadowed the sounds of the extraordinary musical innovations they were making on an almost daily basis.

None of the Fab Four were virtuosos on their instruments, like Eric Clapton or Billy Preston, who recorded some memorable riffs on Beatle albums, nor were they master vocalists like contemporaries Stevie Wonder or Aretha Franklin. Even their lyrical poetry wasn’t the equivalent of Bob Dylan or Paul Simon at the time. What made The Beatles so outstanding was the way they put it all together.

As I listened to some of those DNA-engrained songs recently, I had this realization - many good songs, even some great ones, are written around the virtuosity of the musicians. In other words, the song serves as showcase/vehicle for the talented musicianship of the artist. Those are the songs I always listened to on the radio in the 60’s and 70’s, appreciating the gifted playing and singing. But it was only the recordings of The Beatles that I saved up my allowance to actually buy and treasure. Their instrumentalism and vocalizations wrapped around and served the songs, you see, and so the songs freely came from... well, they seemed to be channeled from their souls. And indeed, well before “Father Joe” and “Doctor Joe,” The Beatles were my first gurus.

“Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be.” (“All You Need Is Love)

“It really doesn’t matter if I’m wrong, I’m right where I belong.” (“Fixing A Hole”)

“Let it be.” (“Let It Be”)

“And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.” (“The End”)

That last lyric was the very last line on the very last song on the very last album that The Beatles recorded together. Their final message.


Whew!

9/11/16 - "THE SPIRITUAL MEANING OF CRISIS!"

This is from a very important Pathwork Guide Lecture, "THE SPIRITUAL MEANING OF CRISIS!"

"Crisis is an attempt of nature to effect change through the cosmic lawfulness of the universe. If change is obstructed by the ego, the part of the consciousness that directs the will, crisis will occur to make structural change possible. Without such structural change in the entity, no balance can be attained. Every crisis ultimately means such a readjustment, whether it appears in the form of pain, difficulties, upheaval, uncertainty, or merely the insecurity that comes from starting out on unaccustomed ways of living after giving up a familiar one. Crisis in any form attempts to break down old structures based on false conclusions and therefore on negativity. Crisis shakes loose ingrained, frozen habits so that new growth becomes possible. It tears down and breaks up, which is momentarily painful, but transformation is unthinkable without it."

Ten years ago this past Sunday, humanity experienced a collective crisis when the Twin Towers were slammed into by a crazed group of suicidal fanatics. As the Guide says above, we invite crises when we resist ("obstruct") change. The stronger the resistance to change, the greater the crisis we will call in.

Obviously, on September 11, 2001, each of individually experienced a crisis at different levels, depending on how much personally we were resisting change in our own individual lives.

Here's the Guide:

"Change is an integral characteristic of life; where there is life there is unending change. Only those who still live in fear and negativity, who resist change, perceive change as something that ought to be resisted. They resist life itself, and suffering closes in on them more tightly. This happens in people's overall development as well as in specific instances."

To change, of course, is inevitable. Only in our childish imagination do we actually think it's possible to stay the same, even for a moment. So, since change is a given, how do we overcome the futile attempts to resist change and avoid living from crisis to crisis, as so many of us do, whether it's in the form of a terrorist attack, a hurricane or a conflictual relationship break-up or other kinds of traumatic losses?

Well it isn't easy.

Here's the Guide again:

"Crisis can be avoided by looking at the inner truth when the first inklings of disturbance and negativity manifest on the surface. But a tremendous amount of honesty is required to challenge one's tightly cherished convictions. Such challenge cuts out the negative self-perpetuation, the motor force that compounds the destructive, erroneous psychic matter until it finds a breaking point. It avoids the many vicious circles within the human psyche and in relationships that are painful and problematic."

Self-honesty, which includes self-revelation - to ourselves and significant others - is the way to embrace change and live without debilitating crises.

Yes. The Truth will set you free.

So, on this 15th anniversary of that infamous crisis that shook the world, don't waste time indulging in platitudes and pseudo-patriotic vitriol against imagined enemies. Pundits and blow-hards in the media love to talk about how we "changed" after 9/11, but in fact, such people actually only became more entrenched versions of who they already were. Racists and xenophobes only became more racist and xenophobic. Those who indulged in militaristic fantasies of power and domination before 9/11 became more boldly belligerent afterwards. I suppose you could call that "change," but to me, it was more accurately just more of the same.

The reality is, folks, everyone is an actor in the play each of us is writing. Even our villains are teachers, trying to get us to look at ourselves. So, do yourself a favor and take a look before you invite the next crisis into your life.

IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT?!

And you're gonna feel fine!

Biblical aficionados might hear those lyrics from the 1987 hit song by R.E.M. as an anthem celebrating the Apocalypse. They might even relish the expectation of being “raptured” up to Heaven at the moment that the End Times come. They might see physical life mainly as a proving ground where one struggles with relationship, money and health issues in an ongoing battle between greed and deprivation, good and evil, righteousness and debauchery, and only holding onto a hope that there is an afterlife reward waiting for those who profess the correct beliefs when the “end of the world” arrives offers the promise of relief.

In addition to prophesies contained in the Book of Revelations almost 2 millennia ago, those revealed by Nostradamus in the 16th Century and Edgar Cayce in the 20th Century, along with many lesser known prophets along the way right up until the present, all seem to likewise point to this moment in history as the tipping point of humanity’s existence on Earth. Even the Mayan calendar, which doesn’t go past our era, is interpreted as a foreshadowing of the end of days for us all.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

Or not.

What if what was being presaged by these soothsayers was something else? Not the existential end of humanity as a race, but rather the end of how we’ve known existence, reality, and ourselves for centuries upon centuries of linear time? What if what we’re in the process of discovering about it all is going to leave us feeling not just fine, but truly rapturous?! What if we are in the midst not of a cataclysmic debacle, but rather a great transformation, one so profoundly positive that all that has come before, all that has been familiar, “the world as we know it,” will be gladly let go of?

Have you noticed that everything old is "dying?" Old not as in old age or chronology, but old as in energy, the energy of 3D limited, dualistic, linear consciousness? Don't let the Republican National Convention madness and the rise of Donald Trump fool you. What you are witnessing there, presumably from a safe distance if you're reading this blog, is the old paradigm of 3D limitation in its death throes. Thus the maniacal and futile kicking and screaming in Cleveland and on FOX News.

In fact, what is happening is that we are approaching the final year - 2017 - of a transition that began with the wave of shifts arriving on 12/12/12, and is accelerating at a greater and greater rate right now toward a future that is going to be startling in its awesomeness!

In 3D, it was all about survival. No more. New quantum tools are becoming available, our DNA is literally being restructured (see the work of neuroscientist, Dr. Joe Dispensa), and as a result, said DNA will be working more efficiently in tandem with consciousness. This alliance will lead to more commonplace spontaneous healings, and ultimately the disappearance of illness and disease altogether.

We will experience the end of karma in the days ahead, no longer needing to "work things through" from the past (Which prompted me a while ago to write the post below: "THE END OF THERAPY AS WE KNEW IT!"), and we will discover that our own personal "akashic records" are not a library of who we've been, but rather a pool of energy that combines all of our lifetimes into a well of wisdom and knowledge that we will be able to draw upon at will. I
ntuition and "planned synchronicity" will replace intellect and logic as our guiding principles. Merely by paying attention to synchronicities, we will be able to invoke them more readily. 

As judgments, beliefs and fear fall by the wayside, we will all experience "enlightenment," and as Earth becomes a "graduate planet," many more individuals, old souls first, will become masters who can affect or change matter with consciousness, and create things out of energy. It's already happening!

So, strap in, folks - we're headed towards becoming a planet of light!"



THE END OF THERAPY AS WE KNEW IT!"

This is from a post entitled, "CHANGE CAN BE EFFORTLESS," on the Higher Frequencies website of Wendy Kennedy:

"Many of you currently repeat to yourselves, 'I can’t. No matter what I do, things never change. I don’t know how. I know these higher spiritual concepts, but it’s hard for me!' Well, the truth of it is that it can be easy. It can be effortless, but you cling to the old stories of self. Sometimes out of the fear of safety and self preservation. Sometimes out of acceptance or rather the fear of not being accepted. Sometimes you cling to the old so you may maintain the illusion of control. The universe is like a vast and flowing river. You have the choice to effortlessly flow with it or frantically try to cling to the shore.

This is from the recent FPL post entitled, "GIVE THANKS! THE RIVER IS TAKING YOU, WHETHER YOU KNOW IT OR NOT!":

"One can exercise free will as a human being by swimming against the current, struggling, fighting, ultimately exhausting oneself, or one can turn around, and go with the flow, having a much smoother and faster time of it on this trip called physical life... The key point I've made, however, is that someone on the bank of the river would see that whether you're swimming against the current or going with the flow, either way, you're being taken downstream to your destination, which is self-actualization and awakening to the truth of your oneness with All That Is."

Well, there's a really revolutionary aspect to this, now, folks. Right now, right here, in this home stretch in the run-up to 5D, the river is roaring! The power of the current, the literal energetic rapids thrusting us forward into full 5th Dimensional consciousness, is rapidly altering the process... of process!

Here's more from the Higher Frequencies piece:

"It is not for you to have to mentally solve every single 'issue' you have but rather for you to more consciously and consistently align your vibration. For in truth, no issue is ever solved at the level of the ego, a.k.a the operating system of the mind. Integration happens from the higher level of consciousness or the operating system of the heart. Because of your engrained belief that the ego is in control, most of you will not fully release a lower thought or emotion until you are capable of mentally perceiving it. As you align your beliefs with the awareness that you are a Divine Being of Light having a physical experience, the conscious awareness of a subconscious belief is no longer required. It is simply a matter of maintenance of vibrational alignment. In truth this awareness never was, but as you identified with your egoic self you added a step in the integration process that said, 'I must figure this out.”

Whoa! Now, I've been a therapist in a variety of modalities for over 30 years, and consider myself to be operating pretty far out of any traditional box. But no matter what the approach I employed or experimented with, one thing I always accepted as truth was that the "the conscious awareness of a subconscious belief" absolutely was a requirement for self-actualization.

But I have to admit, I have found myself more and more, especially over the last few years, skipping steps. And it's not because I've become jaded or lazy, but because I have to keep up with my patients who are moving through their evolution at warp speed! The younger ones especially are doing in 2 years or less what took us First Wavers 10 to 20 years! (Take heart, though, 50-somethings, you're moving at warp speed, too, now. You did the job you signed up for, cutting a swath through the jungles of 3D for the First Wavers, the under-30-somethings, and now you're serving the coffee to them as they wake up. Many thanks... to us!)

More on Effortless Change:

"What is the frequency you would like to experience? Joy, gratitude, infinite abundance, connection, acceptance, ease, grace, peace? When you work with the ego, you tend to think about creating a specific form to experience one of those frequencies and usually only in one area of your life. One of the benefits of working [directly] with frequency rather than focusing on form is that the universe assists you in receiving the frequency in multiple forms and typically by expeditious means. Too much of your energy is focused on the masculine 'doing' state and not enough on the feminine 'being' state. I will be _____ when I _____. I will BE something after I DO something else. In higher dimensional existence where there is no time, both [what you desire and what manifests in your life] are simultaneous expressions."

And a bit more:

"As it has been more socially acceptable to be mental rather than emotional, some of you may find this a bit challenging. But as we said, you do know at the subconscious level exactly what the frequency [of joy, gratitude, abundance...] is. It may simply take some practice to identify what that actually feels like in the body. For others, you believe accessing these frequencies will be too painful so you refuse to allow yourselves to open. In your past you have experienced strong negative emotions and as a result have closed down access to all emotion. Your belief is that if you start to feel you will unearth all the pain that has been suppressed. Sometimes you may momentarily experience those frequencies, but it is the pathway to integration and the release of pain. Pain is perception, and you may choose to experience it for thirty seconds or thirty years [Or 38 years!]. It is up to you. If you choose to perceive an experience through the lens of victim/perpetrator then you will experience pain. If you choose to perceive it through that of co-creator, you are able to release any pain and observe the experience from a neutral space."

Okay, so practically speaking, what does this mean in terms of self-work? It means that the proportion of time spent excavating the past from our memory banks and bodies needs to be matched and ultimately surpassed by the time spent practicing, through meditation and focused intention, giving ourselves access to our Higher Selves and Universal consciousness. It means being willing to change, to give up our previous sense of self, our identities, our attachments to linear time and physical limitation, to conflict and obstacles, etc., and leaping into the greater, vast unknown where everything is possible and manifestation is instant.

Are you ready?! If you think not, remember, you're going anyway, so you can only choose to make it more difficult.

If you think you are ready, then remember the Zen proverb:

"You should meditate 20 minutes every day, unless you are too busy, in which case, you should meditate an hour each day."

LIKE A FISH CLIMBS A TREE!

"Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid."


Albert Einstein said that. Of course.

I would add that to expect a 3-year old to drive herself to pre-school or a 1-year old to cook the family dinner or a 5-year old to manage the household finances are likewise unreasonable expectations that would be not only a burden to the child in question, but quite frustrating for the persons with the expectations, as well.

Where am I heading with this? Simply to make the point that I made in my "TRUTH ABOUT EVERYTHING, PART 6: WE ARE NOT ALL THE SAME!," which is that in a world with individuals of not just different chronological ages, but also of different soul ages, we would become a lot less burdensome and a a lot less frustrated if we were able to see people in the light of their soul age.

Here are two excerpts from #6:

So, just as there are physical babies, there arebaby souls. Just as there are physical adults, there are adult souls. Etc. Etc. And just as it would be irrational to expect a physical baby to be able to feed and shelter itself, or to drive a car or have sex, it is equally irrational to expect a baby soul, even in an adult physical body, to attain higher states of consciousness much beyond the accomplishments of reflex and survival. Baby souls, in other words, generally live simple lives, with simplistic beliefs, focused on getting their basic needs met, very often by seeking others to manage the provision of those needs.

After you read the soul age material, look around you, at everyone, and consider what soul age you are dealing with in each relationship. You will find your perspective and your levels of frustration shifting when you do. And remember, don't give the car keys to a 3-year old!



SEEKING ENLIGHTENMENT? GET BACK TO THE GARDEN!

Many FPL readers are on a path towards "enlightenment/self-actualization/ascension," however it is referred to by various individuals, a path that has become accelerated in recent times. Changes are rapidly occurring in every area of life - health, financial resources, relationships, creative expression.

In many cases, the changes are positive, advancing the seekers to a more expansive place in the above areas, and more significantly, enhancing the feelings of joy, pleasure and harmony on the way. But in some people, the acceleration they're experiencing seems to be towards the negative, a spiral into crises in the same areas, increasing feelings of despair, deprivation and frustration. I say "seems to be" because as others and I have written before, everyone is ultimately going to a place of higher consciousness and vibration, but some are choosing to swim against the current, while others are going with the flow.

One thing, however, that slows everyone down is the grip we have on expectations. Even those who are genuinely dedicated to their own enlightenment/self-actualization/ascension hold onto pictures of what it will look like when they "arrive." I've had some recent conversations with people about this, and shared some spontaneous insights that have come to me this summer.

I started to write a book while on vacation in the first half of July, an attempt to bring together all that I've learned, taught and written about since the run-up to 5D began 4 or 5 years ago. I'd been thinking for a while that my next phase of self-actualization was going to include being a writer for a living. I had the picture painted in HD in my mind. But here's what I came upon in the process of writing said book - everything is changing so fast, the paradigms shifting so thoroughly, the new tools becoming available so often that what I was putting down on the page was becoming obsolete as I was writing it! 


So, with tongue in cheek, I quipped that I decided to plant a vegetable garden and focus on that instead! 

Turns out not to have been a joke. What I've discovered is that the road to enlightenment isn't a path toward achieving grand outer goals, like great financial wealth or big "success" in a particular career or anything else "huge" that my ego-mind or intellect could conjure up. Mind you, those great things can happen on the self-actualized path, but they arrive as synchronistic "by-products," as it were, if they are aligned with a particular agreement you've made, or a destiny you have in your soul plan.

What I've discovered/am discovering is that the true direction of the journey is toward inner harmony and serenity, compassion and love (of self and others), laughter and finding joy in even the most mundane aspects of being a soul in physical form, like walking in the park, swimming in the sea, holding someone's hand... or watching a tomato turn red or a pepper yellow under a loving watch.

Here are the latest pics, verifying that I made the aligned decision! (And a song about getting "back to the garden!"





2016 UPDATE ON: "HAPPY NEW YEAR - DON'T BE A SALMON IN '09!!"

Okay, here we are, the beginning of a new year. Heart-attack season is finally over - yes, I actually heard yet another story of someone having a surprise heart attack on Christmas Eve - and so, some of us will get back to the business of hunkering back down into the distractions of our lives, not looking behind or ahead for wisdom or guidance, just being glad or sad or both that "THE HOLIDAYS" are over. Some of us will attempt to review and gain wisdom from the events of the past year, and set new intentions for the coming year. That's a viable approach, as well.

But I must admit, I love the fact that so many people have heart attacks on Christmas Eve. It's so specific and unambiguous in its message. It shows us that energy matters, that love is a real force, and if your emotional heart isn't open to that energy, when a surge of it arrives, as it often does at this time of year, your physical heart can break as well, along with your emotional heart.

The heart attacks also show that we're not alone. The Universe/our own Higher Selves/All That Is - however you identify that force - let's us know through our crises that we are being guided, that we are on a path. When we veer off that path, or resist moving forward on it, we get slammed. Sometimes hard. It can seem almost that the Universe is ruthless, or that the "wrath of God" is, in fact, wrath. But while that's a judgment of pain and suffering that may be common, it actually isn't natural. Animals in nature, without any egos in the way, accept pain and suffering as guidance, and alter their behavior accordingly. Only humans tend to see a crisis as "punishment" or "bad luck," or something to wring our hands about, but not necessarily use for change.

The fact that we are guided, though, doesn't mean that our lives are being manipulated or that our fate is predetermined in some rigid way. That's the age old "mystery" some religions talk about - how God's will is always being done, yet we simultaneously have free will to do anything we choose. It seems like a paradox or a Zen riddle.

Well, here's how I picture it for myself: if the force of life, my soul force, the Will of All That Is, is a powerful river that I'm in, I, the swimmer, can choose to swim against the current or with the current at any given moment, exerting my free will. But an observer on the bank of the river will plainly see that regardless of my efforts, the current is carrying me downstream. If I insist on resisting the flow, and keep swimming against the current, I will certainly become exhausted, and maybe even die like many spawning salmon do. On the other hand, if I join with the current, surrender to the flow, I will move much more easily and faster on my path.

Surrendering is an act of free will, too. It is active, not passive. It is not submitting, nor a weakness to give up the stubborn clinging to habitual ways of behaving and thinking. It is an ego-less way of moving through life.

Here is an exercise, what I call a "Five Senses Meditation," to try this year: the next time your leave your house, instead of staying in your ego-mind and mapping out your moves and calculating in advance your arrival to your destination in your head, simply start walking, and only pay attention to your five senses - to what you see, hear, taste, smell and touch. You'll be amazed, I promise you, because while you're discovering a wonderful world of sights and sounds and sensory experiences, you will still get to where you're going, you will arrive at your destination, but filled up with the gift that is life when we don't try and control it.

I'm sure there is an evolutionary purpose to the salmon swimming upstream, so it must work for them. But perhaps, as we begin anew this January 1st, you might consider whether or not you want to be a salmon this year. Happy New Year!

MORE ON "THE PLACEBO EFFECT IS REAL!" (HINT: IT STILL IS!)

Watch THIS... and read THIS - "Man Who Wasn't Expected To Walk Is Now An Accomplished Athlete," - then read or reread the FPL post below. 

Key line from the above story: "His doctors did not see a good future for him." 



Way to go, Doc!

Read on - 

Many people have heard of the "placebo effect," and even mainstream medical professionals and scientists have long known of the reality that patients given an ineffective treatment often improve anyway, simply because they expected to get better. About half of American doctors in a new survey say they regularly give unwitting patients placebo treatments - substance-free pills and fake pseudo-surgery procedures -  that shouldn't technically help their condition, but in fact do help. 

Okay, stop, breathe and listen to it again: patients given a fake or ineffective treatment often improve anyway, simply because they expect to get better. 

This is one of the truths about everything that changes everything. Right? I mean, it's really the most simple deductive reasoning. If a person's belief in something - a water pill, fake surgery, praying, whatever, or simply believing in a particular doctor's ability to heal you - can actually cause cells and molecules to rearrange themselves, then we have hard evidence that we create our reality from our beliefs.

Okay... so we must be rapidly switching over from the mechanistic slash, burn and drug approach that health professionals have been using for centuries to a system in which doctors and nurses are trained to work with their patients' beliefs instead, yes?

No. Or at least, not yet. Why not? 

Well, partly because the scam of drugs, surgery and radiation is big business and people in those businesses make big bucks off of the many young and baby souls who want to be taken care of by an all-powerful father figure, no matter how abusive or exploitive in reality said big daddy's are. 

Secondly, the name of the 3D game we've been playing for millennia here on Earth is: "Shit Happens!" And it's actually quite a "fun" game. You see, in the Shit Happens Game, we never know what's going to occur because we're unconscious of the fact that we're creating our experiences in every moment. On top of which, we have amnesia about our own eternal nature. So, everything we experience is a big and, very often, scary surprise.

"Oh, what do you know? I just inherited a million dollars!" Or... "Wow, the person I have a crush on has a crush on me, too!" Or... "I can't believe my husband cheated on me!" "Oh shit! I just got fired from my job!" "What? I have cancer? How could that be?!"

And so on. One slammin' surprise after another, sometimes happy ones, sometimes not so much, but what a ride! Yeah, life in 3D beats Space Mountain at Disneyworld hands down. Of course, Space Mountain is a perfect representation of 3rd dimensional consciousness - who knows if that roller coaster is going to go off the rails this time or not?! Woohoo!!

So, yes, the placebo effect is real. We create our health or dis-ease from our beliefs. And yes, you could become a conscious creator of the events in your life, knowingly deciding and manifesting what you would like to experience each moment of each day. But, you say, what would be the excitement or the challenge in that? Conflict, obstacles, adversaries... overcoming these on a constant basis is what gets us going, right?

Well, I don't know about you, but I'm ready to experience the challenge of deciding in each moment of health and vitality what I would like to create, what I would like to enjoy, what new pleasure I would like to be stimulated by, what new information I'd like to download from the galactic consciousness. I'd like to keep pushing the boundaries of beauty, music, sexuality, abundance and wisdom.

I've been to Space Mountain, folks. Helluva ride, but you know... been there done that. Threw up. Now, I'm taking the 5D challenge, and instead of seeing how many drops and curves I can handle, I'm checking out how much bliss, joy and pleasure I can tolerate.
