Offering Love

loveflameEternity-copy2

Bhante – my mentor and teacher who lived to 110 years old once said that for every person that loves it nullifies the hate in ten other people.

Gregg Braden in conjunction with the Heart Math Institute reports that our hearts create a field of about twelve feet and that the instruments used to measure the field can only do so up to twelve feet. So it is possible that the heart field extends much further than twelve feet.

Love loves hate until it dissolves.

 

Love is the binding emotion. If love can be quantified as photons it could be said that love is a frequency of light. In my experience I have seen a variety of frequencies of light that are love. Love is the stuff of connection in the universe and allows all other emotions to connect to it. Emotions are universal amongst all humans. Its what binds us together as a species. Love is the most binding of all the emotions.

When I send love to another and there is no permission to send it to an individual I send the love near to an individual so that the love is so irresistible it could be delightful to take the love.

When love surrounds hate without us forcing love onto another then it softens the hatred, which is fear and allows it to dissolve. Love loves hate until it dissolves.

Try it to see how sharing or offering love affects your view of yourself, your view of the peopled multiverse and your relationship to the peopled multiverse as well as the multiverse itself.

4-magicThe duck pond on the Sonoma Plaza 🙂

 

On an early Sunday morning in February of 1983 my best friend Kent and I went to Sonoma and the Valley of the Moon.

I had moved to the Stockton area in 1982 to live and work with Bhante – the Dharmawara Mahathera and learn Vipassana Meditation in greater depth. However I rebelled against being a devotee – something he had wanted (not me) and moved out.

Hanging out at the Blackwater Café in Stockton I came to know Kent. We became good friends. He introduced me to the magic of Sonoma.

His introduction was replete with great wisdom and insight.

I am eternally grateful to him for opening the door to my home.

We left around 6 am in the dusk of a cold morning on that February. He drove his van with his dog and me across the delta towards Sonoma. He had a knack for introducing me to the magic of Sonoma and the Valley of the Moon with his mythic-poetic musings peppered into our conversations.

We missed Bill at perform with his guitar at the church. We met Bill and his wife Shirley at the First Congregational Church on West Spain Street in Sonoma at the tail end of the 7 am Service. Then Kent drove us to their cabin near the top of Moon Mountain Drive in Sonoma. We ate brunch and talked.

My third eye opened wide upon entry into the Sonoma Valley.

Kent and I took a short walk on the fire trail to the south of their house and he waxed on about castles in Europe appearing out of the fog – such as the fog in the valley.

Something quite unexpected had happened that day. I digress – that for the past 18 months I had been doing an inner exercise – a meditation in the morning to create light for the “soul’s body” and open the 3rd eye. My third eye opened wide upon entry into the Sonoma Valley.

I felt the town welcomed me, just as Mount Diablo “spoke” to me about becoming a healer. Of course the impressions didn’t come in English but I translated them into language for a better understanding. At first I explained the opening of my Third Eye by all the spiritual work that was done by others in the valley.

Many years after another answer came to me in a softer manner. It was the land herself, the configuration of the Valley of the Moon and the power center (the Plaza) of Sonoma Valley that has been a source of mystery and powerful transformation. I believe the way in which Kent introduced me to Sonoma and the Valley was replete with great wisdom and insight. I am eternally grateful to him for opening the door to my home.

Towards the end of this Field of Dreams film clip Burt Lancaster’s character Doc Graham makes a powerful statement about “home”. This is how it is for me in Sonoma.

Learning for The Sake of Learning

Neptune- dreams and visions made

A tribute to one of my earliest mentors and good friend John White.

When we entered his classroom he wrote “Learn for the sake of learning” on the blackboard and he fostered an insatiable quest for life-=long learning that is on going.

He was hired at Cheshire High School in 1965 and fired when I was a senior in 1969. He was my sophomore and junior English Teacher and he recommended me for an honors fiction class – Themes in Modern Fiction. He was fired when I was a senior. He counseled classmates who were taking acid trips and refused to turn them over to the principle. In turn the principle was planning to turn the names over to the police so arrests could be made.

After I graduated John and I became friends. He helped me through some very rough times in the early seventies.

John published an anthology called: The Highest State of Consciousness. We talked at length about consciousness and about using drugs like LSD for spiritual awakenings. We discussed meditation and altered states. He listened as I relayed two experiences I had had about feeling Earth as One and all beings as beings of light. John spent time in Palo Alto California helping Astronaut Edgar Mitchell organize the Institute for Noetic Sciences. When I was a senior in college representing the Psychology Honors Fraternity I put together a three-day symposium entitled Higher States of Consciousness. John was instrumental in connecting me with the key players like: Robert Ornstein, Charles Tart and other consciousness researchers for a three day symposium on Higher Consciousness hosted at Clark University where I was a student and faculty and students were invited from Holy Cross and Assumption College.

While in California he was an agent for a non-fiction book that never sold. He retired from being an agent just as I was about to put a new book out to market. He advised self-publication through Amazon or a similar venue.
