YES1One word can change EVERYTHING!

“If a universe can be imagined, it exists.” ~ Professor M. R. Franks

“There are hundreds of different radio waves being broadcast all around you from distant stations. At any given instant, your office or car or living room is full of these radio waves. However if you turn on a radio, you can listen to only one frequency at a time; these other frequencies are not in phase with each other.

Each station has a different frequency, a different energy. As a result, your radio can only be turned to one broadcast at a time. Likewise, in our universe we are tuned into the frequency that corresponds to physical reality. But there are an infinite number of parallel realities coexisting with us in the same room, although we cannot tune into them.” ~ Professor Steven Weinberg

Is there a theory of the universe that is so wildly implausible, so limitless, so enchanting, so unbelievably miraculous that perhaps it could be true?

Could there be infinite possibilities (alternative universes) that all exist simultaneously in the eternal now moment, all happening and coinciding with each other in their own space and time?

If this is our “reality” then truly, everything one ever thought was true, is not—we may have to recalibrate every idea or concept we ever had about life itself.

SAY-YES“We all exist in multiple universes and create our own bubble of reality.” ~ Gerald O’Donnell

This strikes me as potentially the most significant insight we can have about our own life: We are all ultimately responsible for choosing our reality. It is through our choices in how we view our lives that our lives change.

We can create our own alternate realities via the “stories” we create about what we see and experience. Philosophically, one can speculate endlessly about parallel universes, yet existentially and practically speaking, we are making a choice via the narrative we adopt. We are sculpting our world via our choices.

The Power of Perspective: Creating Your Future

From moment to moment, we are empowered to make a difference to ourselves, to others, and to our world. It all amounts to changing our narrative, or perspective.

Our perspective on what happens to us is the prime determinant of how we create our life. The dictionary (Apple Inc.) defines ‘PERSPECTIVE’ as:

“a particular attitude toward or way of regarding something; a point of view.”

This is an outlook, stance, frame of reference, approach, way of looking at things, an interpretation. It is how we view the world. We each have a unique and distinctive viewpoint.

Our perspectives shift and change our perceptions of reality. These perceptions result in beliefs which are convictions about the world, the things we accept as real and true. Our beliefs lead to our behaviors. How we behave is the end point that causes events to occur, and leads to the results we get.

As the Buddha said, “all that we are is the result of what we have thought.” Everything depends on perspective.

And this brings up an interesting point: If the point of origin is in the now, we can be the architect of our future. Even if everything has failed, or seems bleaker than the darkest night, still there is hope in a single moment, the present moment of choice.

One can still make a new choice that can entirely and radically change everything. As James Allen wrote, “in the ocean of life, the isles of blessedness are smiling and the sunny shore of your ideal awaits your coming.”

Choosing the Way You Think

If we are stuck within our little box of reality, our little paradigm that says we have a past, present and future and this and that identity, culture, family – we will remain shipwrecked, far from seeing the true picture, that reality is way vaster than we can imagine.

On the other hand, if we were to shift into a state of gratitude over every event, our worlds would shift entirely, our whole experience of life would dramatically transform – as all would be good, all would be well, all would beokay as it is. The wise say that the essential truth of the universe is in the sun and the stars, in the fact that it is consciousness that creates and binds the whole universe together, in the idea that all is love, and all that is important for us to know is love? This is our infinite potential, our breathtaking universe. Is this the ultimate message behind it all?

“Habits of thinking need not be forever. One of the most significant findings in psychology in the last twenty years is that individuals can choose the way they think.” ~ Martin Seligman from Learned Optimism

We can change our perception, we can choose a new narrative, we can, if we choose to. Whatever may come is okay, welcomed, accepted, without resistance. Effortless living is easier than struggle. There is nowhere else we need to be, but in the here and now, and in the sparkle in each other’s eyes.

Apple coined the phrase – THINK DIFFERENT. Living one’s possibility requires being a creator, creating one’s own frontier, and pushing one’s own limits, going beyond the ‘normal.’

“yes is a world & in this world of yes live (skillfully curled) all worlds” ~ e. e. cummings

Say ‘YES’ to your world!

Da Vinci Code

The church of Abbe Sauniere – inspiration for the Da Vinci Code

The Cathars were a mystical Christian movement that grew from the Languedoc region of France in the 11th century and expanded to other parts of Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries. The Cathars called themselves Bons Hommes or “Good Christians,” focusing on both dualistic and gnostic elements of Christianity, characterised by extreme devotion to religious principles. Eventually, their zealous expansion and popularity became viewed as a threat to Roman Catholicism.

Pope Innocent III and regional French royals succeeded in having them ousted. The last known Cathars were burned alive in the Inquisition of the Roman Catholic Church at Montsegur, Languedoc, France in 1244 AD.

The following prophetic vision was left by the Cathars. Seems more relevant than ever!

Here is the Cathars’ vision of the “New Church”:

  • It has no fabric, only understanding.
  • It has no membership, save those who know they belong.
  • It has no rivals, because it is non-competitive.
  • It has no ambition, it seeks only to serve.
  • It knows no boundaries, for nationalisms are unloving.
  • It is not of itself, because it seeks to enrich all groups and religions.
  • It has no secret, no arcanum, no initiation save that of true understanding of the
    power of love and that, if we want it to be so, the world will change, but only if we
    change ourselves first.
  • It acknowledges all great teachers of all ages who have shown the truth of love.
  • Its participants will practise the truth of love in all their being.
  • It seeks not to teach but to be, and in being, to enrich.
  • It recognises the whole planet as a Being of which we are all a part.
  • It recognises that the time has come for the supreme transmutation, the ultimate
    alchemical act of conscious change of the world-ego into a voluntary return to the
    Whole.
  • It does not proclaim itself with a loud voice, but in the subtle realms of loving.
  • It salutes all those in the past who have blazed the path and have paid the price.Its members shall know each other by their deeds and being, and by their eyes, and
    by no other outward sign save the fraternal embrace.
  • Its members will dedicate their lives to the silent loving of their neighbour and
    environment and the planet, while carrying out their task, however exalted or
    humble.
  • It recognises the supremacy of the Great Idea which may only be accomplished if
    the human race practises love.
  • It has no reward to offer either here or in the hereafter save that of the ineffable joy
    of being and loving.
  • Its members shall seek to advance the cause of understanding, doing good by
    stealth, and teaching only by example.
  • Its members shall heal their neighbours, their community and our planet.
  • Its members shall know no fear and feel no shame, and their knowledge shall
    prevail over all odds.
  • All those who belong, belong to the church of love.

Forgive-640x425Why does it seem we still have so much conflict and derision in the world – and is there a different way to approach this?

Is there a root of our collective dysfunction as individuals and as a collective society? As Henry Thoreau observed about the folly of not going directly to the source, however uncomfortable it may be, “There are a thousand hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.”

It seems that in today’s world, selfishness, lust for power, hatred, violence and other unwanted dramas are still very much at play. The despair and separation seems to be reaching saturation point. It is an invitation to consider what historian Charles Beard said when asked what he had learnt from history, “when it is dark enough, you can see the stars.”

If now is the darkness before the dawn, what is the most powerful act we can do as individuals and as humanity to sweep away the conflicts of history? Where is the glimpse of light striving to shine forth?

There is never a time when peace can be resolved with hatred. If the past taught us anything, it is that conflict stimulates more conflict. So, too, forgiveness stimulates more forgiveness.

We stand at a threshold of spiritual opportunity that can take us into the stratosphere of our radiance. When you liberate yourself, you automatically liberate others. Choosing goodness crosses the barrier of ego limitation, and invites others to walk with us, as our light is shared amongst others.
Radical forgiveness is a broader gift – an act of grace and service to humanity. It’s a process of final resolution, release and healing.

Radical forgiveness is not sensible, rational, logical or “right” – it’s an invitation to open the heart to acting completely and unconditionally loving without a selfish motivation. Not that one doesn’t get something out of forgiving. Forgiveness is an act of self-love – it gives a double gift, rewarding both the giver and the receiver. That’s why forgiving and letting go is the most powerful choice one can make for oneself and for humanity.

Practising radical forgiveness is allowing and accepting all that is happening in our world. It releases one to be present without trying to control others and the quality of our experience. Taking the “letting go” pill activates a deep surrendering. In this space of surrender, we glimpse a greater part of reality and who we are – that which is unconditional freedom. With understanding, comes compassion. With compassion, comes forgiveness. Radical forgiveness liberates all to be allowed.

Forgiveness liberates us from suffering over the past and inspires us to be present. In The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle argues that only by stepping into the “power of the Now,” can there be real forgiveness. This point of now is where all true power exists rendering forgiveness actually unnecessary. “This renders the past powerless, and you realize deeply that nothing you ever did or that was ever done to you could touch even in the slightest the radiant essence of who you are.”

The ocean is made up of single cells containing the intelligence of the whole body. As within each droplet of water is the ocean, so within each person is the intelligence of the whole of humanity. To see any single person as separate from the whole, is to misunderstand our connection, our inseparability.

Once we can begin to glimpse our vastness, and start to embrace our expansive potential, we can start to open the closed windows of our minds. By allowing our humanity to embrace our universality, we can liberate limitation from our spirits, and invite in endless cosmic possibilities. As Jack Kornfield wrote, “Within each of us is a secret longing to remember the light, to step out in time in this dancing world. It’s where we began and where we return.”

The cosmic joke is that the very external world we judge so harshly, only reflects our internal world. What is seen in others is a projection that emanates from within. This mirror shows us who we are, it reveals exactly what is happening inside. There is no escaping from the self – one always suffers the consequences of what is occurring in one’s internal world. One who is able to accept and forgive himself (or herself) is also able to accept and forgive others.

Holding grudges and negative feelings towards is an act of self-harm. We become victims of our own suffering, not victims of the person who supposedly harmed us. We do most harm to ourselves not by what others did to us, but how we respond to it. What we resist will persist until we embrace acceptance, allowance and non-judgment. Forgiveness releases and clears our internal experience, and we can use this open space to live a life of freedom. Radical forgiveness frees us from being held hostage by blame, shame and guilt. It opens up the gateway to release negativity, and instead replace these qualities in our self with positive feelings.

Isaac Newton’s action-reaction physics principle can be applied in a different way to our actions lead to consequences. In this way, we create our reality via our perspective, beliefs and thoughts. By the universal law of inviting in that which is feared, invalidating so-called evil and evil-doers empowers those committing atrocities.

Why radical forgiveness?

“Radical” is not playing small by keeping things as they are – it requires a revolution. It is a plea to end all wars, a request to forgive the rapist, the murderer, the terrorist, the abuser, the homophobe, the racist once and for all. Radical is a statement of “NO MORE” – we draw the line in the sane on all past abuses – our pain and suffering ends here.

Now is the time to radiate our potential as evolving human beings and humanity. Radical forgiveness lets go and releases what is past to the annals of the past. It invites in our own true nature.

There is no loss in venturing forth with one’s heart open as a messenger of hope, a ray of light. Here is an invitation, to lead the way by practicing radical forgiveness. As Jane Goodall said, “You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”

Do you hear the call?


PRACTICE:

Regarding people in the present or past, alive or dead;
Regarding issues, conflicts between nations, tribes, century-long vendettas, political matters, cultural and religious differences:

If you are holding a grudge, grievance, or feeling forces of resentment, jealousy, bitterness, anger, hatred, disgust, or any other feelings of rancor, rejection, pain and suffering, or incompletion, find a place in yourself to dedicate a time to meditate.

Within your meditation practice, consciously let go of the cords of attachment holding you to this situation of ill feeling. Consciously let it go energetically with your focus. Bring love to the space created within.

Now, feel love and forgiveness expand outwards from your heart chakra.

When you feel you have achieved this, and created a new positive feeling within, send love and forgiveness to the person or people involved.

jane goodall“When you liberate yourself, you automatically liberate others.” 
~ David Starlight

What latent forces lie dormant within the human psyche and will 2015 see a portal being opened into LIMITLESS being, into living and embodying LOVE?

As 2014 ebbs away, it’s time to invite and welcome in the new energies of 2015. 

As we invite in these new AQUARIAN ENERGIES, I would like to share some key insights about the energies we have been experiencing.

2014 has been tricky with much collective trauma and grief exposed.

“Your past is just a story, and once you realize this, it has no power over you.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk

2015

We have seen continued media control, apathy and continued violence in the world – it’s been a cosmic scenario of “the darkest hour is before the dawn.” 

In many ways, after the depths of darkness and hopelessness, a new dawn shall arise from the burning embers of the past. It may seem like life is just beginning again. In 2014, many of the initiated will have had to face their deepest fears.

A lot of collective issues have been exposed in 2014. It’s been tiring seeing so much superficiality and artificial egotism exposed this year. May we bring light to the darkness.

To understand is to be compassionate.

osho is
“What you meet in another being is the projection of your own level of evolution.” – Ram Dass

The softness that is in your heart, that yearns for release and surrender – that is authentically you. It does not advertise itself and tell you how brilliant it is. It doesn’t need to. It shines always, its brilliance is magnetic and yet unseen by the eyes, it is that which is felt by the inner eyes. This is the presence of love and unconditional authenticity I would like to bring to the world in 2015, and see thrive amongst us brothers and sisters, ONE TRIBE.

It’s time to be free of all the lessons we learned, and all the layers we shed. It’s time to let them all go, released into the wind or ocean, or imagining fire burning away the edges of our souls to reveal the underlying diamond that is waiting to RADIATE its luminosity into 2015. Now is the time for all that we no longer need to be released.

May we all find our collective calling as souls and find the freedom and support to CO-CREATE from our soul’s desires, from the deep knowledge that comes from speaking and honoring one’s SELF.

Freedom – what is freedom? It is to be free with all your heart and soul.

May we manifest from the heart with LOVE, RESPECT, INTEGRITY and call in our Higher Self for guidance. Decide to make a difference in the world, starting with the self. Wishing you abundant BLESSINGS and LIGHT in 2015.

Thanks to all those special souls who graced me with your presence in 2014 (you know who you are) and inviting in all the new expanding souls, wishing you ever-more sunrises, sunsets and JOYFULNESS!

All paths lead to love and unity consciousness. It is done. 2015 is the year for the initiated, the year when we put all our heart-centered wisdom into action, to shine and become what we were always meant to be.

Open your heart and see with new eyes. If anyone needs me – I’ll be in love!

Ready for 2015.
