Recreational Marijuana is Legal in California – a personal story

While I agree with the legalization of recreational weed in California, I don’t smoke it.

I don’t smoke weed.

It was a problem for me until I stopped at the end of September 1985. Eighteen years later I fell off the wagon in 2003, my partner wanted to try it with me. It’s been 14 years 5 months clean of MJ.

It’s triggering me.

Now that it’s legal I can smell it in my neighborhood and it’s triggering me. So I’m burning incense to mask the smell. I don’t feel its right for me to weed out my neighbors and ask them to smoke inside or close the window.

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.

Winter Solstice 2017 – December 21 2017 11:28:59 am EST (8:28:59 am PST)

WinterSol17Part One (Part Two – The Summer Solstice 2018 – coming soon…)

Astrologically the winter solstice in the northern hemispheres is the Sun moving from Sagittarius to Capricorn. Included is the winter solstice chart for Washington DC (see chart above).

This winter solstice is the epitome of the patriarchy both the higher vibrations of the patriarchy and the lowest vibrations.

Capricorn is an earth sign represented by a Mountain Goat, tenuous and tough and very grounded practical and dependable. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Many people who know a smattering about astrology get freaked when a Saturn transit occurs, but Saturn transits are about focus hard work, discipline, constraint and accomplishment.

There is likely to be a delusional and deceptive force at play in injected new life into patriarchal goals.

This winter solstice is the epitome of the patriarchy both the higher vibrations of the patriarchy and the lowest vibrations. Since I set the chart for Washington DC the solstice sun is set in an exalted place for patriarchal accomplishment geared to make money internationally and poised for truth. Saturn and Sun are conjunct meaning their energies are blended. Work and authority will drive the economy to new heights. The danger here is probably obvious – the GOP and Trump’s greed are established in a race to make the most money domestically and internationally. (Venus in Sagittarius – Venus representing money, Sagittarius’s – international focus on money and truth.) Watch for accidental leaks of truth saying during this time. Mercury will be retrograde at the solstice bring intensity to thinking, communication both verbal and written. There are likely to be mistakes. If the GOP Tax scam is passed before Friday at 8:50 pm EST while Mercury is retrograde then the flaws will become evident and possible help dismantle the law.

Transformational energies of networks and institutions are likely to be amplified.

The placement of Neptune – spirituality and cosmic consciousness may seem to magically fuel the American economy as defined by the Stock Market and international corporate investment (Sun Saturn), but through secret agendas and murky plots – i.e. cover-ups. There is likely to be a delusional and deceptive force at play in injected new life into patriarchal goals.

Uranus – revolution-evolution, trickster, disruptor energy blended with fighting for justice and/or the oppressed (asteroid Pallas Athena) is part of this winter solstice

High trickster energy may enter to disrupt and /or augment the greed and money making rush. There will probably be an emotional conflict of secretive actions versus doing the right thing for all. Transformational energies of networks and institutions are likely to be amplified.

On an individual basis beginning a new project may succeed based on hard work – so what else is new – and as long as that hard work is aligned with a spiritual “right path” then there is a greater chance of success.

The movement for truth and the transition team to takes us peacefully from patriarchy to the forming partnership paradigm can also be seen in the winter solstice chart. (Uranus – revolution-evolution, trickster, disruptor energy blended with fighting for justice and/or the oppressed is part of this winter solstice).

A New Kind of Christmas Prayer

X-MasCard

My mother liked buying Christmas cards all year long. She had huge clear plastic bags of them in the cedar closet and elsewhere in our house.

I told people I was from the future.

In my 20s she invited me to take some to send. I took some, she said take more… So I selected bunches that were all the same painting. I wasn’t much into sending Christmas cards but I took them because my mom wanted me to have some. I think she was overwhelmed with the amount of the cards she had stored up.

Every year for many years I had many of these Christmas cards. It was impossible to send them all to people I knew – maybe I had over 100 cards.

universal wishes

Every since I could remember I longed for a better world as if I had a memory of this world. Perhaps I did remember a different world because I told people I was from the future. I could feel a world and people at peace with themselves, everyone in the community, not just locally but nationally and internationally. And not just with people, but will all the beings of Earth. Often we ascribe life to biological beings only, I saw and I see all beings, rock, water, air and our sun as beings.

There’s something magical about getting mail (snail mail) from yourself especially if you don’t immediately remember that you sent it.

Every year sometime in my 20s I would write a Christmas card to myself with 7 wishes written inside. Four or five were universal wishes and the other two or three were personal. There’s something magical about getting mail (snail mail) from yourself especially if you don’t immediately remember that you sent it.

I began practicing finding a sense of peace within myself

You retrieve it from the post box and look at the envelope. The writing / printing looks familiar. You rip it open and your remember that old mill in winter and your read the wishes. I stopped sending cards when I ran out and I had begun thinking that wishes were melancholy ways to stay stuck – keeping wishes as wishes that would never come true because they postponed the event into a future that didn’t exist.

Create the peace you want in yourself and be it in the world.

I began to visualize using all my senses to what world peace might feel, look, smell and be like. I began practicing finding a sense of peace within myself and finding threads that would connect peace feelings to others.

I invite you to send a snail mail card to yourself of your wishes and then visualize with your thoughts and senses and your emotions what you are creating now. Create the peace you want in yourself and be it in the world.

The Backwards Life and What Else

spacewave1

A client once asked me: “You must have to travel out there pretty far to see what you see, right?’

“No, I just include,” my answer was immediate.

“How does that work?”

I would answer my non-answer answer: “All life is One. That’s how it works.”

Language, Ego and time – most notably linear time – hold us prisoner to our separateness.

It doesn’t explain how it works from a linear time perspective.

Ego, language, time, science and self are predicated on “the me” and “the not-me”.

By being expanded self and time that includes our current lifetime and all past and future lifetimes “the me” and “the not-me” are included as one.

 

All Life is One.

 

We are bound by the invention of time. Language, Ego and time – most notably linear time – hold us prisoner to our separateness. It is the wordless language of the heart that frees us from linear time into boundless world of Love, Compassion, and Oneness.

In the beginning we were One.

Inclusivity (the urge to include) may be the bridge between ego / linear time and the infinite of Love and Light.

In the beginning we were One. As we grew and learned to speak and think Oneness began to erode into “the me” and “the not-me”.  A child learns to say “NO!”

The rest of life seems to be a battle between defining “the me” and “the not-me” and feeling the Oneness. The “me and the “not-me” are illusions in a big drama to reconnect with the feeling of Oneness only to loose it so we reconnect with it repeatedly.

There are a number of philosophies of being. Two philosophies battle for authority.

 

  • A – One philosophy says we are strong hard-working people, believing in the strength and independence of the individual and freedom as paramount to all else. Opportunity abounds in a competitive culture and is there for the taking if we are strong, powerful individuals, working to take it.

 

  • B – Another philosophy says we are strong hard-working people living interdependently in community. Freedom and justice are partners in a web of interconnectivity where we all prosper in the spirit of love, cooperation and compassion. In this environment everybody wins.

Philosophy A is based on the power of the individual righteousness and a worldview of winners and losers. This is a fear-based system where greed is necessary. Competition in this framework sets up an environment of ultimate collapse followed by re-building.

Philosophy B. though operating inside pf Philosophy A, is based on community individuality, which allows finite competitiveness in a playful setting to weave with others in cooperation for prosperity for all. It allows for supportive measures to given to others that haven’t benefited from competitive capitalism until community inclusiveness can fully function.

We bless All Life

The Principle of Creating a new kind of Prayer

EssenceFlameEternalimagesloveflameEternity-copy2

Language and time creates an artificial separation between the ever present now and a future. There is no future. It is there in our minds as something we believe to be true based on language and the trick of ego.

When we pray or ask the universe for something to happen from the future we reinforce the illusion of separateness. This keeps us from having or achieving that what we wish to create. We are separated from having or achieving due to the action of wish in relationship to time. The past and future are illusions that we invented through language to manage the world. Time is now. Even money is the currency of this illusion.

Let’s say there has been a drought or fires and rain is needed.

Go to a place in your neighborhood in nature where you feel a connection or a feeling of awe and power. Take off your shoes and socks if you wish. Stand on earth – grass or soil, twigs or leaves and feel the water beneath your feet, the mud or soaked socks and shoes (if you didn’t take them off). Smell the scents of earth after a long rich rain. Feel earth’s relief and looseness with the richness of plentiful water. Feel the wet on your skin, hair and clothing from the rains. See the drought or fire ravaged areas having been rained upon.

 

Give thanks.

The Happiness Prayer

Bhante93loveflameEternity-copy2  M&DnDeLight-copy

 

 

 

 

Happiness is what we are blessed with as babies. We get caught up in a world of having, goals, and conquest in “the pursuit of happiness”. The past isn’t a separate place “back there” – the memories of the past exists in the present and the emotions are the link to the ever expanding now.

You’re scrolling through the photos on your phone, tablet or computer (or a photo album / loose photos) and you come across a photo of you and your friends, family or loved ones.

You remember what it was like in this photo, the sounds, the conversations, the quality of the air, the laughter, the feelings of companionship and love. Looking at the photograph you feel the happiness and love you felt with your friends, family and/or lovers – your community.

You reflect on those feelings and allow yourself to feel those feelings now. Feel the peace, feel the love, feel the happiness.

Reflecting on feelings of happiness elicits the feelings to arise now.

You give thanks.

The Other Side of Gratefulness

loveflameEternity-copy2

Part of this season of giving thanks is a reminder to feel humbled and grateful for the blessings in our lives. This could be gratefulness to friends, to food, to shelter, to a thankfulness that the roof stays over the head and doesn’t fall down.

I think we’re all aware of feeling irritated, frustrated, infuriated by the injustices…

The other side of gratefulness is to be thankful for all that is irritating and produces feelings of frustration and anger. Feelings of gratefulness to loss through “breaking-up”, loss from death of a family members, spouse, and/or best friend. You may think these are strange feelings and happenstances to feel grateful.

This kind of gratefulness brings my attention to basic underlying questions of my existence on the planet. While its great to feel grateful for what I think I have or how I relate I automatically exclude all that is unpleasant, irritating and infuriating. When I feel grateful to the pain in some bones of my left foot my attention is drawn there. I’m paying attention to something I might ordinarily forget and then I’m entering into a form of sleep.

Its easier to fight the injustices I perceive when I am grateful to the people that are eliciting unpleasant responses in me.

I think we’re all aware of feeling irritated, frustrated, infuriated by the injustices we perceive in the world around us, but when we are reminded to feel grateful we exclude those unpleasantries, because their unpleasant. When I include all those unpleasant feelings and I allow myself to feel grateful for these feelings something extraordinary abet subtle unfolds. My heart softens towards those situations and people that triggers the irritation in me. Intellectually I begin to understand their point of view even though I voraciously disagreed with them. My awareness expands and I include their beingness while continuing to disagree.

When I make room in my life for irritation and the like more people are included in the tissues of interconnectivity.

Its easier to fight the injustices I perceive when I am grateful to the people that are eliciting unpleasant responses in me. It reminds me that I am a flawed imperfect being and that other human citizens are as flawed as I am. This teaches me to “not take the issues in contention not so personally”. Of course I do – I do take the issues I interpret as injustices personally.

I tell myself to expand my gratefulness practice to include, that which is easy, and that which is tough to practice on a daily basis – and I forget to do this. I often remember that the other person isn’t perfect and I am trying to include them by releasing my irritation and softening my heart to include them in friendship. This works sometimes.

When I make room in my life for irritation and the like more people are included in the tissues of interconnectivity. Debating with these individuals makes more sense when I am grateful for the irritations that connect us because I am working on taking this less personally.

Being the Wider Perspective in Troubled Times

images

We live in troubled times. Part of the trouble has to do with the changing times. In 1992 the sun –our star shifted frequency and a new epoch was born. The patriarchal system not only stopped working but a new vibration began its existence. The new vibration isn’t fully manifest yet. The new vibration has to do with an economy without money and without tyranny from whence systems of money are built. The new vibration is based on community. A community-based economy is a long way off. And a world without money and tyranny is farther away.

as11-44-6667

Intellectually the wider perspective is “seeing” that the trouble times we are in is part of the dying of tyranny from the perspective of the larger context of a world without money and tyranny, a world without as many laws, a blending of classes, a reduced need for police, no military, no war, sustained world wide peace and so on.

 

How do we begin?na-pali-95

 

A first step is working on Being and letting go of doing and attachment.

Letting go of doing and attachment is a lifelong process that can generate energy for Beingness.

So let’s skip to the good part: Being.

From a Being perspective go back to the beginning of your life and experience the beginning of this lifetime and the place your body occupies as one present moment. From this current moment of today go forward to the time of the death of your physical body. (From the linear time perspective your ego doesn’t know when your body will pass – or maybe you do know. It’s just the passing of your physical body. Maybe that brings up some fears. See if you can suspend those fears.) Experience your entire lifetime in your current physical body as one present moment.

Being from this larger perspective is incredibly freeing. When I first experienced an expanded present moment of 20 years I felt the difference being Being-Time and Doing (or Ego)-time. In Being-Time I saw that I am going to be okay no matter what. Sure I will feel happy, sad, have losses, suffer ect, and I will be okay.

I challenge you to practice an expanded present moment and then choose to feel okay no matter what happens.

Then we you feel stress or worry remember how you felt during your expanded present moment experience and that you are okay. This will help you to let go of so-called negative emotions and live in your Beingness of a wider perspective.
