The Birth of Power

“It is a crime against our humanity to segregate ourselves from our personal power.”

In Transition:

Since early last year, we have had an extraordinary opportunity to become related with ourselves, find the ever-evolving balance between our body, mind and heart, relate with our intuition and align with our soul and the universe.  It seems a lot to fathom, let alone apply to our daily lives.  Yet, it is vital to the sustenance of our multidimensional being.  However, anxiety, indifference, ignorance, fear, opinion and self-righteousness are potent obstacles when navigating social reality.  Establishing and maintaining our balance in intense environments is ever more challenging. Going within ourselves and our experience offers us insight to identify and transform the societally conditioned narcissism of humanity.

Spectacle to Behold:

Removing our focal point from the external world and shifting into our inner observer is the key to transforming our experience.  Reality is the grandest of illusions, an enigma of existence, designed for the sole purpose of confusing, diverting and enslaving all in its seductive web of desire and temptation.  It is a brilliant diamond, faceted with mirrors to befuddle the wisest of explorers, leaving us with empty lives and afflicted with social psychoses.  The best way to trick people into believing they are awakened is to saturate perception and reality with propaganda and rhetoric to enable and promote “official” narratives as truth.  Social reality is a racket of deception, devised and enforced by the few to disempower the many.

The Human Schism:

It is astonishing how people are eagerly willing to acquiesce their personal power to the authoritarian organizations of society.  Yet, the instant they are asked to contribute their money, even to the worthiest of causes, they turn to stone.  Where and to what we place our value is symbolic of our experience.  There are essential moments in our lives when we are not present to the gravity of the choices we either do or don’t make.  Often, it is in these instances when we blindly set a course for personal obscurity.  Observation empowers us to draw pivotal distinctions, preventing us from falling prey to social pressures and enabling the schism between our soul and the universe.  Left to our societal devices, oblivion is inevitable.

To Covet and Defend:

There is one thing apparent since the pandemic began.  All our personal weaknesses we seek to hide from our family, friends and colleagues are now even more difficult to conceal.  As human beings, we have an innate tendency to avoid and escape our fears and insecurities.  When the scales of reality are upended, our desire to bolster our inner defenses fails within these current, declining social dynamics.  The psychological impact to us is devastating, sending us reeling and spiraling into our deepest darkness.  For some, it is an opportunity to shift into authenticity and transformation.  For most, a trigger to strengthen their defenses, raise their weapon of self-righteousness and bury the truth of themselves. 

“We have to face our darkness if we seek to become light.”

In Theory:

We engage and enable a dualistic society within a three-dimensional domain.  This paradigm is rarely challenged, as it is commonly accepted reality.  Yet, science neglects the validity of universality since the parameters of its own hypotheses deal primarily with intellectually proven fact instead of universally experienced insight.  Logic fails to understand multidimensionality as there are over seven billion perceptions in the world and the universe is ever transforming.  Regardless, it is apparent to most there is something extraordinary beyond what we can sense.  No matter how we choose to discover and explore universal being, when we are present to our experience, the conclusion is always the same.  Reality is an illusion. 

Against the Current:

We all make mountains of mole hills.  The human psyche tends to devise and embellish events and circumstances well before awareness, common sense and understanding intervene.  This is a characteristic many adopt, given its seeds are planted long before our consciousness is established.  Without daily practices of observation, meditation and transformation, the demons and tragedies we invent and enable grow in tandem with our ego, fear and oblivion.  Eventually, we produce perverse schemes in our reactions to social stimuli, exonerating ourselves from personal accountability.  This results in a loss of power and most importantly energy.  Yet, if we can destroy our power, we can also create it.  

Birth of Power:

Pure energy is the experience of true power.  Most of us do not practice a daily awareness of energy.  It exists much like a dream; abstract, elusive, foreign and even threatening.  When it flows through us, it can inspire an abundance of creativity, empowerment and insight.  It can also cause vortices of destruction, fear and oblivion.  The origin of our power is how we choose to experience and express our energy.  Its containment, conversion and expression define the quality of our existence.  Energy + focus + intention = power.  The universe is the eternal, expansive and infinite source of our vitality.  We exist primarily as finite beings.  Therefore, we experience only a fraction of our universal potential. 

A Claim to Be:

Social reality is the proverbial wool pulled over our eyes to supplement our deficiency of being.  When we seek to become and live awakened, it is essential for us to stake our claim.  The foundation of our being is energy.  The nature of its expression and manifestation is defined by our focus, purpose and willpower.  As multidimensional beings, it is our birthright to transcend our enslavements to duality, ego, fear and opinion.  When we hold a space for ourselves to transition from ordinary existence to extraordinary experience, we reclaim and shift our energy from gratifying our individual ambitions to inspiring collective transformation.  This is our personal power, best expressed when we embody universality to empower all.

“The death of self is the birth of power.”

“Empower Yourself” Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora

Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora from May 27th, 2021 discussing the necessity of balance and empowerment.

“Whenever there are global events that shake up reality, it is an opportunity for us to take the initiative to create something extraordinary.  A vital element of this shift is defining and establishing a “new balance” within ourselves in alignment not just with the current dynamic of society, yet also with the universe.  This balance begins with acknowledging and sustaining the masculine and feminine natures each of us embody.   Opening ourselves to the possibilities both qualities provide allows us to transcend their duality and embrace our universality.  These are the cornerstones of our being, what we manifest and who we become.  It is in the present we are able to empower ourselves progressively and ultimately the world.” – Iam

“Breathing in Courage” Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora.

Breathing In Courage with Iam Saums

Courage is an interesting concept. What does it mean? The desire to act, or not, I would say, in relation to whatever your ‘higher interests’ are. The best for you and for your family, friends, community and especially the entirety of the ‘all of us’. All with an eye on one’s integrity.

So, who decides the answers to these questions? Who chooses what is right and wrong? I see that as a simple answer. You do! I do! We all do for ourselves. Or we don’t and allow others to dictate, rule, coerces. How sad, and unheroic, I would say, to let others tells us what we can and cannot do.

Perhaps courage is simply the willingness, no matter the consequences, perceived or real, to do what we feel is right. Big Question. How do we decide that?

So again, I ask myself what is courage? Do we even know? I would say all of us need to see that for ourselves. Find the answers. Not from movies or that idiot box called a T.V. Certainly not from others, especially those we call Politicians. A fool is a fool who is soon fooled.

For sure, many may inspire us, but a ‘cage master’ by any other name, will still keep you locked away. I want to gag when I see any ‘so-called’ expert in a suit trying to tell me what is or is not so. I suspect any, and all of those ‘voices’ on a tv screen to be acting. Certainly not working my best interest. How could they? The don’t even know me.

So, Courage. How do we get ours? Where would such a concept be found? I was lucky enough to have an interesting conversation on this very topic, and many others besides, with Iam Saums. A visionary, author, poet, musician, but most of all, if I dare so say, an honest man in an honest life trying to dig deep inside himself to find the best answers for him and his life.

A deep breath can do wonders for our health and mental state of being. We are made of breaths and we will die very quickly, if we have none. To limit our breath is to limit our lives.  Wisdom comes on the winds, at times for me. And deep breathing, or so I’ve found, is a key to longer life and conscious choice.

Breathing in Courage can ignite and cool at the same time. Ignite inspirations and Cool down Stress. I invite you all to listen and enjoy.

Further explorations of Iam’s wisdom may be found on his website. And maybe, you may see for yourself how to develop the courage to become the best you, you’ve always felt was possible.

With Much Love, Lorenzo

Big thanks to Iam for Joining us here Today.

An Essential Choice

“We either bury our heads in the sand or choose to make our stand.”

As It Seems:

Society is an abomination.  What have we become?  Why have we allowed it to get to this level of delusion, depravity, destruction and death?  Why do we enable and embolden the industries of economics, medicine, politics and religion?  How can we wield our desire, entitlement, ego, intelligence and self-righteousness as weapons of social destruction to protect our fears, failures and insecurities?  Will we find the courage, intention, strength and willingness to defy our arrogance?  Will we choose to claim and express our unique power to transform the nightmare we have enabled with our lives?  Are these impossible questions to be debunked with our cognitive dissonance or opportunities to shift our experience?   

As It Is:

The impacts of events over the last 18 months have been devastating beyond our wildest fears.  Conflict, corruption, cruelty, disease, inequality, injustice, poverty, prejudice and war have become our nature.  We cannot observe how society is, turn and point the finger at our opponents, then claim victory on Social Media to make ourselves feel better about our own apathy, denial, indifference and judgement.  Our arrogance, entitlement and obscurity are obvious when we see how we helped cause and spread this madness.  Yet, we plod on with our egos, ire and opinions in tow, minute men and women for the timeless debate of wit, wile and wanton.  Are we willing to be accountable and shift our focus from oblivion to awareness?

Social Watermark:

Totalitarian organizations are enforcing modifications to the dynamics of our being, preventing us from being in flow with our heart, soul and the universe.  Over the last few decades, our social environment has become inundated with toxicity.  The effects of which are rarely acknowledged, yet often exhibited as disease, egotism, negativity and violence.  All of this, combined with the current conditions of disorder, inequity and prejudice, have rendered social reality uninhabitable.  Our bodies, minds and hearts are being distorted, manipulated and terrorized by the calculated, callous nuances of simulated society.  The sacred cord that connects us with the universe is being severed.  Social reality is segregating us from our soul.    

The Body:

The greatest side effect of the current pandemic is not physical illness or the fear of contraction.  It is not even the mainstream media assault we have all had to endure.  The deepest impact is on our adrenal glands and nervous systems.  Our social environment disrupts our natural balance.  The stresses of common perception and impending doom have frayed and fatigued our instinctual sensibilities, leaving us tattered and torn beneath the gravity of social reality.  We have all been broken, burdened by a constant barrage of consumable anxiety and disease, spinning us out, turning us around, inside out and upside down.  Our constant, collective focus on it has completed the vicious cycle.

“We have given away our power for the fantasy of Social Reality.”

The Mind:

As much as recent events impact us physically, the psychological effects are as or more devastating.  Mass fear and hysteria are being imposed upon the world’s population with a biased broadcast of information and a relentless campaign, laden with evident agendas.  This is the principal cause of adrenal fatigue and stress exhaustion now rampant in society.  Yet, it has also distorted, dominated and manipulated our thoughts, scrambling our neural pathways and transmitting destructive signals through our minds and bodies contributing to our imbalance.  This has compromised our already fragile immune systems, rendering us susceptible to delusion, disease, degeneration and death.

The Heart:

This last year has been an emotional tug-of-war.  Whether it is the official narrative on which the pandemic is widely reported in contrast to alternative and holistic viewpoints, the intensity of the US Presidential election, classism, inequality, injustice, racism and unrest, the will of the people is broken.  The necessity to defend our unique perception exacerbates our social climate.  Common acceptance, sense and understanding are eagerly abandoned.  Our hearts are overwhelmed both physically and emotionally under the sharp intolerance, judgement and scrutiny from family members, friends and colleagues wielding burden of proof as universal credence.  Our heart centers are being attacked, depleted and traumatized.  When they become unbalanced, we can no longer relate with our soul.   

The Intuition:

Our intuition is the interpreter of our being.  It empowers communication between our body, mind, heart and spirit.  When our body is healthy, our mind is clear and our heart is focused, the centers of our being resonate with our soul.  We all have seven major chakras.  When aligned, they are conduits for energy to flow from the universe and our soul, through our centers and into our heart, mind and body.  Our intuition is an eternal and infinite presence.  It empowers us to establish and maintain equanimity between the elements of our being.  When we achieve this balance, we are sourced by the universe through our soul.  Our intuition sends this multidimensional energy to enliven our heart, mind and body.      

The Soul:

Most people will not intimate with their soul until they pass from this earth, let alone embody it.  Everyone has a destiny with this experience.  Few choose to clarify, realize and sustain this extraordinary expression of being.  Society is a soulless entity, devoid of empathy, kindness, integrity, truth and understanding.  It is a viral syndrome, enslaving our collective soul.  We are immigrants to our essence and the universe.  This stark reality is most present in who we are being, how we live and how we treat each other.  Our arrogance, desire, ego and self-righteousness have sacrificed our soul for instant gratification.  The reckoning for humanity has come.

The Present We Live:

How we live our experience is our choice.  Society implies that there are choices, though few exist within its construct.  There are only menial decisions provided by an authoritarian-imposed affront weaponizing duality with left or right, dark or light, good or evil, day or night and wrong or right.  Being is our ability to break the spell of social conditioning to which we all fall victim.  Social reality is the wool pulled over our eyes when we are not paying attention.  This is our dilemma.  Our brushes with authentic epiphany and insight are rare and fleeting, to the degree we no longer acknowledge them as opportunity.  The past is dead.  The future is created by how present we live.  Universality is the only way we transform reality.

The Choice We Create:

There is a positive energetic shift occurring in the universe sourcing us with creativity, imagination, opportunity and transformation.  There is also a negative energetic movement in society influencing us toward captivity, destruction, fear, illness and death.  Our current era is defined by choice.  We become what we choose.  Where we aim our focus of attention is where we place our energy.  Aligning with the universal shift empowers us to transcend duality and be one with all.  When we opt for societal indoctrination and modification, we concede our personal power as victims of social reality.  The power of this choice cannot be weighed with instinct and intellect alone.  Emotion and intuition empower our choice to become an expression of the universe.            

Choose wisely! While the universe will bring you life, social reality will take it from you.”

Age of Experience

“Perception is the pawn of social reality.”

Veils of Vision:

Each of us adopt, invent and enact perceptual filters.  Some are instinctual, while others mental and emotional.  Occasionally they are intuitive, yet these are rare and fleeting.  Over time, our vision is clouded with so many facets of perception, we mature and live detached from our experience of life.  We seldom cause or live it.  We merely read and respond to our social and environmental stimulus.  Sure, we exist, think and sometimes feel our way.  Ultimately, we allow our anxieties, fears and insecurities to build a barrier between simply living to survive and being to thrive.  We aimlessly wander through the forest of our personal filters, unable to escape the kaleidoscope of collective reality.

Social Psychosis:

It can never be overstated how destructive, impactful, influential and enslaving social reality is.  Our innate desire to set the compass of our life to institutional relativity is how we destroy our creativity, imagination, possibility and transformation.  Being creative, extraordinary and unique is callously and fervently admonished as frivolous in the face of popular existence.  Meanwhile, our relatedness with ourselves and the universe is dismissed, distorted and thwarted by our ego’s selfish appetites.  Social reality casts a long shadow upon our consciousness.  In any moment, there are millions of opportunities to shift ourselves away from mainstream reality and commit to creating an empowering, enriching and inspirational experience.        

Forbidden Fruit:

Our culture is rife with knowledge.  However, contemporary wisdom is primarily intellectual.  For centuries, universal being and multidimensionality have been and are adamantly criticized, reviled as flights of fantasy, daydreams and existential nonsense.  Awareness is frequently threatened by denial, resistance, rejection and ridicule.  Universal experience transcends two-dimensional existence in the three-dimensional domain of social reality.  When it is discovered and explored, we encounter a perceptual paradox that challenges all we have been socially conditioned to believe, sense and think.  All that flies in the face of society’s common narrative is deemed sacrilege. 

Obscured by Clouds:

Social reality is pulled over our senses from the moment we are born.  Our inherent, creative expressions are replaced with conditioned, destructive desires.  Eventually, living in this paradigm renders us oblivious to the necessity of creativity, consciousness, enlightenment and transformation.  It obstructs our universal power to envision, intuit and manifest life experiences, inhibiting our ability to fulfill our personal destiny.  The further we distance from our heart, soul and the universe, the more challenging it becomes for us to experience everything beyond the facade of realism.  Breaking the spell of social reality is far easier than being free from the one we cast upon ourselves.

“We experience as we think, not as we are.”

Age of Illumination:

We are in the currents of a powerful, once-in-a-lifetime energetic shift.  As the global conditions of disease, greed, inequality, injustice, politics, racism, religion and war reign, our experience of this extraordinary age of conscious potentiality is quickening.  Our default patterns of survival serve to distract us from the remarkable opportunities that exist for all to discover, express and become their unique purpose.  Social reality is a hurricane raging around us.  It arouses and entices us to abandon our connection and relation with the universe.  The primary intention for conscious being is establishing the equilibrium between our instinct, intellect, emotion, intuition, soul and the universe.

Synchronistic Symmetry:

All of us have masculine and feminine qualities regardless of our physical gender.  All of us embody the attributes of each planet in the solar system, though we tend to characteristically exhibit two or three.  We all are composed of the four essential elements: air, water, fire and earth.  Therefore, multidimensionality is essential to our fulfilled experience.  The institutions of social reality strategically exclude diversity of being to prevent us from becoming enlightened.  Our dependence, focus, energy and engagement in the charade sustains its existence.  We become one with creation when we establish and empower the balance between our body, mind, heart, intuition and soul.

Creative Opportunity:

Social reality is designed as a method of endurance.  The forbidden fruit of existence is to envision our purpose, create our experience and fulfill our unique destiny.  Our lives are opportunities to transform any circumstance we may encounter.  We are expressions of this power.  Now that the energetic shift is happening, it is a hollow pursuit to simply observe our experience and be mystified.  When extraordinary events transpire, we feel empowerment in every dimension of our being.  The universe inspires us to be present and receive its infinite energy.  Every moment is an opportunity to accept, focus, balance, center, ground, intend and embody our experience.

Being our Experience:

Remarkable experiences are few and fleeting when we are victims of circumstance.  It is impossible for us to be present to our experience when we are continually engaged in the diversions of social reality.  We may appease our body and mind, and our heart may be moved, yet our intuition and spirit are forgotten, silent partners.  The equilibrium of our instincts, thoughts, emotions, intuition and soul is the foundation upon which we create our experience.  This balance sustains our being and inspires our vision, creativity, power and purpose.  When we align our focus, energy and intention with the universe, we become the expression of our personal destiny.  All we choose to imagine becomes our experience.

“Experience is the entrance to enlightenment.”

The Awakening

“Awareness is only the beginning…”

The Woke and The Awakened:

The current fad of social consciousness is being “woke.”  Though its meaning may remain an enigma to many, I imagine “woke” represents those who happen upon insightful information peaking their attention and contemplation.  Whereas “awakened” is the state of being conscious.  These are two remarkably diverse experiences with one vital distinction.  It is good to discover and ponder awareness, yet best to embrace and become awakened.  Consciousness is a personal encounter with intuitive, spiritual and universal potentialities.  One often convoluted, devalued and misunderstood by reactive instinct and intellect.  If waking up is the seed, living consciously are its roots.

Breaking the Spell:

We are all victims of circumstance regarding the commitment and watermark of our awareness.  The culture in which we enable and engage is designed to enslave us into personal obscurity with our own fear, doubt and diversion.  We have moments of insight and even enlightenment, yet the power of these experiences is diminished and destroyed by our focus and dependence on social relativity.  Eventually, most of us sentence ourselves to realities in a virtual vacuum.  We have been conditioned to believe creating our unique purpose is futile, illogical, optional and terrifying.  Being who we are is the most challenging, elusive and significant achievement in life.  Each of us is destined to pioneer our path with the expression of our creativity. 

In-the-Flow:

A once-in-a-millennia energetic movement is now occurring.  It is an extraordinary opportunity for humanity to become conscious, committed, present and related with each other, nature and the universe.  Our universality thrives when we balance our instinct, intellect and emotion with our intuition.  This expression of being attunes us to our unique purpose, connecting us with our soul.  In kind, our spirit relates and resonates with the universe.  This alchemy of our being sources, sustains and unites us with transcendental experiences.  Imagine society when humanity is empowered by conscious expressions of being! The possibilities we collectively choose to create are as eternal and infinite as our soul.

Creation’s Creation:

All of us are creative, regardless of belief, position, race, social status or wealth.  Our multidimensionality aligns us with the world and the universe.  When we balance, express and exercise our sense, thought, feeling and insight, the energy of creativity flows for us to empower, enlighten and manifest our personal medium.  It is our birth rite to inscribe our signature upon the world, as well as experience the benefits of the energy the source provides us through our expression.  As we transform reality by sharing our unique creativity, we are also shifting the dynamics of the universe.  Now more than ever, it is essential we discover and express our voice.

“Creativity is awareness in action.”

The Art of Awakening:

The ultimate expression of creativity is transforming ourselves.  It is a universal declaration to acknowledge, embrace and embody the creative force empowering us to shift the dynamics of our being.  We can empower this opportunity at any moment in any experience.  Though we are prone to vicious cycles of behavior, thought and emotion often depriving our fulfillment, it is simply our choice and intention to observe the nature of our experience and manifest our vision into any environment at any moment.  There is an accelerated progression of energy holding a space for us to shift in ways seldom seen or enacted by humanity.  Our willingness to release all that inhibits our purpose, sources our power to create our destiny.  

Discovery in Observation:

Often taking a breath and witnessing the nature of our experience within social reality inspires our transcendence.  Not with ego, isolation or superiority, yet as an expression of distinction from mundane existence.  Observation is the cornerstone of discovery.  It clarifies and opens our perception, understanding and experience, aligning us with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe.  Our multidimensionality grants us the opportunity to live life not as it seems, rather as it is and can be created.  This is the gateway of awakening.  Each of us has a unique expression of universality.  When we accept and embrace it, our path is guided and empowered by all we discover.

Kindling Consciousness:

In social reality, our awareness is always leaving us.  Engineered society amuses, bewilders, entertains and suppresses. Knowing this is “woke.” Living free from this is being “awakened.”  There are many practices to cultivate our consciousness.  One of the best is meditation.  When we close our eyes, calm our body, mind and heart and focus on our breath, we instantly transform our experience and environment.  It is an exodus from the social indoctrination constantly imposing simulated existence upon us.  It is the pathway to being present in the present.  When we meditate, we are empowered by creativity, energy, insight and transformation.  We are only as conscious as we are present to being.  

Awakened Being:

The energetic shift is now! It is happening within us.  How consciously we live defines how we create our experience.  We are all expressions of the universe.  Awareness of this truth and its manifestation in our lives transcends the global illusions of duality, envy, fear, hate, prejudice and oblivion.  We are all related.  When we embrace and become this, the roots between us grow deep into our souls.  This is the embodiment of universal being.  First, we create this in ourselves.  Then, we empower ourselves to be guided by the universe in our every instinct, thought and feeling.  Next, we inspire others by who we are being.  Eventually, we work together to transform society.  Finally, we let nature be our course. 

“Now is always the era of our awakening.”

A Cure for Wellbeing

“Illness is the opportunity to heal.”

Tattered and Torn:

The parade of events over the last year have rendered us wounded upon society’s battlefield.  For all of us, it is merely the measure to which we have allowed its impression to influence us.  Our adrenals, instincts and nerves have been frayed under the gravity of all that has happened.  Though we justifiably can claim victim to most of what has, is and may occur, it exists only in the way we choose to perceive.  Understanding no generation of humanity has ever experienced such a degree of anarchy, delusion, mania and upheaval is just the tip of the iceberg.  Our willingness to heal is most vital during these times to see who we have all become amid these great adversities and challenges.

For Better or Worse:

Our commitment to ourselves and each other has been well-defined.  Unless of course it is not observed and honored.  As human beings, we are all related.  Not just by blood, also by instinct, intellect, emotion and soul.  These qualities run much deeper than lineage and are infinite and eternal.  However, we are desensitized to the vulnerabilities of our nature, thought, feeling and intuition to appease our fears, insecurities and self-righteousness.  Our virtues become our weaknesses and our iniquities are weaponized as our strengths.  More often than we acknowledge, our ego disrupts our relationships with ourselves and each other.  Our personal oblivion is the destroyer of possibility.

Social Venom:

Human society and social reality are a virus.  There is no easy or polite way around this stark truth we have enabled with our arrogant agendas, insatiable desires, unconscious fears and selfish intentions.  Disease has become our common nature.  Its toxicity is within and around us.  It festers in the air we breathe, the food and water we consume, the thoughts we entertain and the feelings we harbor.  We are both the virus and the cure, though our focus is often on the former.  Therefore, we enable our ego to highjack all facets of our being, projecting darkness into our lives and society.  We have been deceived into believing this is our true power.  When we seek to know why there is so much disease, the answer is glaring back at us in the mirror.

For What it’s Worth:

Most of us are more focused on our finances than our health.  This is the primary reason why this virus has had such a widespread impact.  Where we place value illustrates what we embody.  Our way of life is apparent when we are eagerly willing to wager its quality for fleeting prominence and wealth.  It is the dangling carrot leading us away from universal being.  Our health is at the heart and soul of our existence.  Our experience of it is the essential distinction between surviving and thriving.  Social negligence toward well-being is an epidemic few choose to acknowledge let alone transform.  Empowering and nurturing our health creates the opportunity to observe the nature of our dis-ease to discover and manifest its cure.

“Healing is an everyday need that must be as aggressive as our greed.”

The First Medicine:

The moment we are born, our breath is our first declaration.  It is the cornerstone of our survival and environment.  We are mostly oblivious to our breath.  Our focus is always drifting from its conscious expression.  When we breathe, we inhale the essence of existence and exhale all the impurities our lungs filter.  How present we are to our breath is as present we are to our life.  This may seem rudimentary, yet in the moment-to-moment experience, it is the most challenging practice to achieve.  Conscious breathing is instant transformation.  It is available to us anytime we choose.  The deeper our breath the greater our relationship with our heart, soul, the universe and each other.

The Second Medicine:

More than 90% of our body and 70% of the earth is water.  60% of the water in our body is contained in our cells.  It is the most powerful and destructive natural force sustaining all life on the planet.  Water is the manifestation of spirit, essential to our existence.  Every time we drink, it cleanses the toxins from our body. There is no element as entirely purifying. It is a transmitter and receiver, adapting to any foreign elements introduced and responsive to the nature of their toxic intention.  Drinking two to three liters of water everyday provides a physiological regeneration of our cells, organs, muscles and blood.  It is transformation in action, conducting electromagnetic energy to empower our being.     

The Third Medicine:

Soulfire is a term commonly associated with the metaphysical.  A force of energy transposed by our spirit to resonate through the seven centers of our being.  When these are in alignment, infinite and eternal energy flows through us.  A multidimensional torus of life force empowers and sustains our existence.  However, our soul is not its origin.  The universe is a vast, teaming stellar ocean of energy ever present and ever expressive.  Its destined nature is to source life.  All we are, become and need is provided to us at any moment of our experience.  When we focus and nurture our intent on synergizing energetically with the universe, any condition or illness can be transformed into health.

The Fourth Medicine:

The earth is laden with an abundance of elemental, herbal remedies to promote heath and heal all human ailments.  Trees offer a stable supply of oxygen.  Plants and roots treat diseases, infections and viruses.  The earth produces a powerful geomagnetic energy radiating from its interior.  Its terrestrial life force interacts with the electromagnetic energy emanating from our heart center.  Our soul conducts universal energy through our intuition into the seven centers of our being.  When we align and attune our chakras to the universe and the earth’s field, its energy sources us with creativity, insight, healing and vitality.  Our most essential life practice is grounding ourselves with the earth to receive the greatest benefit of this energy. 

Being of Balance:

Our equilibrium is the balance and synergy of our multidimensionality.  This symmetry is as important as our relationship with the universe, ourselves and the earth.  It is our opportunity to observe, empower, enrich and establish our ever-shifting balance at any moment in any experience.  We are beings of nature, akin to its environmental design.  Our innate expression is to fulfill an optimal existence.  Society is contrarian, conditioned to be self-centric.  The earth is an expression of altruism, existing in sacred alchemy for this sole purpose.  We all have a natural ability to identify our dis-eases, modify our lifestyle and transform our being.  Balancing our being is the universal expression of our cure.  

“Being is the medicine of the universe.”    

Plan Be

“We are.”

The Edge:

Now that we have been roused from the slumber of social reality in wake of rampant animosity, disease, injustice, politics and uprising, our opportunity to turn the antiquated page of human history has come.  Over the last year, all of us have been driven to the brink with the threat of social annihilation.  Our adrenals, attention, nerves and patience pushed over the edge.  Believe it or not, there are many overlooked positives that currently exist in contemporary society during this challenging yet powerful age.  Though we all have had our encounters with anger, hopelessness, fear, loss, sadness and restriction, an energetic transitional shift is occurring the likes we have never experienced.  Regardless of how society may seem, we are in a new era.

Lethal Liaisons:

Fear is the most powerful force in society.  This unfortunate truth is certainly evident now.  Perhaps the greatest reason why it effectively passes its impression of dis-ease is our collective oblivion to its influence.  Yet, the pure power of it is not that to which we are present.  It is the fear to which we are unconscious and/or deny.  We give our personal power over to fear more than any other social entity.  The more we avoid this powerful element of human nature, the more we ultimately enable it and are enslaved.  It is the primary reason most never manifest their human destiny.  Generation after generation succumb to its prowess thus perpetuating an unfulfilled existence. 

Sleight of Perception:

There will always be those who deceive, exploit and manipulate the natural evolution and progression of human destiny.  Fear-laden, insecure individuals deluded with the notion that real power is obtained through aggression, control, division, profit and warfare.  Yet, the effectiveness, impact and success of these archaic paradigms are fading and failing amidst the transcendence of social consciousness, empathy, insight and unity.  Their plan to take advantage of the vulnerable while society slips beneath the surface of its own cognizance, compassion, reason and welfare has backfired.  The dynamics of life have changed.  We either sink to the bottom of existence or flow with the ever-expanding tides of transition.     

Organized Diversion:

Since before the last Winter Solstice, we are in a quickening of energetic evolution.  The gateway to the universe is wide open granting us the opportunity to relate with and personify our soul.  It is a powerful time when we experience both extraordinary inspiration and insight as well as extreme anxiety and fear.  Social reality is designed to prevent and even prohibit this shift in human awareness.  Authoritarian institutions have always and are intentionally attempting to highjack and obstruct our destined transformation.  Whether their strategy is mass weapons of education, politics, religion or media, their agendas of control and power are ever-present.  Yet, social awareness is now empowering a transparency unrivaled in human history.

“Being is believing.”

Transition of Power:

Most are quite comfortable and willing to relinquish their personal power to teachers, preachers, elected officials, broadcast personalities and a great number of other autocratic social entities.  We have been conditioned to yield our power to others in the guise of agreement, belonging, conformity, patriotism, security and self-righteousness.  We have enabled the very social enslavement we so despise when we are fortunate enough to acknowledge this harsh self-reality.  Doubt is as influential in our lives as fear.  Now we are being challenged with the undeniable truth of ourselves, given our current social experience and environment.  These evolutionary labor pains grant us a unique opportunity to claim our power and transform our reality.

Dynamics of Being:

Instinct is an aspect of our body, thought is a facet of our mind and feelings are an expression of our heart.  Yet, these senses are not in and of themselves an articulation of being.  We are multidimensional entities empowered by the totality of our potentiality.  Being is our destined opportunity to express our full possibility.  Our true nature is the ability to benefit from all elements of our being.  When we establish and sustain balance within our being, we become an expression of our soul and the universe.  This inspires us to collectively thrive.  Our individual fulfillment is fruitless when obtained for the self alone.  True enlightenment is a collective experience when achieved by all.

Source of Energy:

Energy flows where attention goes. The universe sources us with infinite energy from which everything begins and ends.  Our energy is our power.  How we express it defines our existence, perception and reality.  Who we are being determines its nature and purpose.  Its quality is often diminished by our selfish and toxic personal and social climates.  Our focus and intent of it is the only way we can transform our selves and environment.  The legacy of our energy resonates beyond our lives. Who we are being energetically manifests the universe into social reality.  We are this powerful!  Who we are being is a declaration of empowerment and the embodiment of our soul.

Universal Destiny:

Most may perceive contemporary times as increasingly grim.  This last year has been an extraordinary opportunity to acknowledge and release our failures with social conflict, disease, duality, evasion, judgement, hostility, malevolence, prejudice and segregation.  When observing with our instinct and intellect, these challenges may appear necessary and justified.  Yet, broadening our vision to include our heart and intuition transforms our experience and aligns us with the universe.  Living our full potential of being empowers us to transcend the tragic linear and peripheral social reality to embrace and become an expression of our soul.  Our personal transformation creates, sustains and fulfills our universal destiny.

“Being is the essence of the universe.”

Center of Attention

“Energy flows where attention goes.”

Self as Center:

We cannot blame ourselves.  It happens to us before we even understand what awareness is, let alone how it is best practiced.  As children, we are programmed by our parents, family, teachers, ministers and society before we can draw distinctions of what is and is not social conditioning.  We are told it is for our own good, so we learn to cling to it as a lifeline.  Our individual reality is our center of importance.  Selfishness becomes our way of life.  It cuts us off from society, nature, experience, relativity, each other and ourselves.  Yet the perceptual filter of egoism never provides a healthy vision of who we are beyond who we see in the mirror.  We are merely a phantom of ourselves.

Common Illusion:

Our focus is our power.  The measure of its existence is defined by how it is expressed.  No matter how much attention we may intend, it exists within the vacuum of social reality.  The intricate design of human experience is riddled with amusements and mirages to constantly seize whatever focus we may muster in any given moment.  Our engagement is what sustains the delusion.  Therefore, the war on perception for our interest wages forward, intensifying with every view.  Consciousness is sacrificed upon the altar of social media for a superficial sense of belonging, purpose and worth.  The image becomes more present and powerful than its source.  We inevitably become an illusion of ourselves.

Social Vacancy:

Recent events with the virus have not only crippled and compromised the confidence, immunity, tolerance and understanding of the world.  It has also isolated, separated and terrified humanity en masse, breaking the foundations of community, compassion and good will.  Given time, most things of this nature will ultimately pit us against each other in a race for entitled, self-righteous supremacy over our fellow human beings to defend and protect our anxiety and fear with our own egotistical projections of animosity, contempt and envy.  We are clever like that.  Able to exploit and strategize with the best of them to uphold our social standing in a decaying society hellbent on measuring success with money and power instead of belonging and love.  

Democracy Trumps Narcissism:

Survival of the fittest, such as it is in the US, especially now, is why sociopathic egomaniacs have highjacked and manipulated what we experience and perceive as democracy.  Its very nature does not sustain the intricate systems of control, power and profit established and maintained in the business, educational, political and religious arenas.  Yet, for the first time in 12 years, we saw democracy in the US come alive, gain momentum, express its power and thrive in the midst of a global pandemic.  As remarkable as the last few weeks have been, it is only the advent of a momentous shift in human evolution, community, consciousness and transformation.  The real work of manifesting new possibilities begins now. 

“It is in dire times when we discover who we truly are.”

Burden to Bear:

There is no doubt that 2020 has been one of the most challenging years.  A perfect storm of disease, delusion, misinformation, social civil war and tragedy most of us have never experienced.  Though our probable future looks as bleak as the last nine months, there is an evident, stark symbolism.  In many ways, we are being birthed into a new era of existence.  It may be difficult to see amidst the chaos and trauma that wreaks havoc upon our senses.  The structures of social reality are transforming with the momentum of the current universal shift.  We all have the unique opportunity to go with the flow of this movement.  Now is the time to rise to the occasion and empower our global destiny.          

Focal Point:

To where, who and what we guide our attention sets the course of our existence.  Our focus determines the realization of our being, energy and intention.  When we are impelled to react to circumstances and people, we become a product of the reality to which we subscribe.  When we are inspired to be proactive, we become creators of our reality.  Our personal power begins with the intention of our focus, the expression of our energy and the unique purpose we manifest.  All of us have, are and will always be centers of possibility for transforming any experience we may choose to empower.  Collectively, we can revolutionize social reality by being the source of our transformation.          

Origin of Being:

Recently, we have witnessed multiple examples of what, how and who not to be.  When we turn on our devices, radios or televisions the archaically corrupt models of leadership let alone civility are well represented.  In fact, social reality holds little space for authenticity, humility and honesty.  The birthplace of being is in our breath.  Seems simple.  Yet it is always leaving us far more often than consciously taken.  In the heat of the moment, when we cross the threshold of inner peace, patience and tolerance, breathing is the best practice we can choose.  It brings awareness, being, focus, observation and serenity.  Whether it is the life-sustaining oxygen, the vital reprieve from reality or shifting our experience, it is the source of our personal power.               

Center as Self:

Whether we choose to acknowledge it, we are inclined to make ourselves the center of attention.  It is a default, fixed way of emulation motivated by societal structures to enforce acquiescence, conflict, division and oblivion.  Shifting our intention away from our individual experience to serve others in the spirit of community empowers us to transform our focus, way of being and ultimately social reality.  The most powerful expression of transformation occurs when we transcend living self-centered by being a centered self.  We establish our center by aligning with the universe through our intuition.  This inspires us to be centered in our soul.  True being thrives when it is experienced by all.   

“Enlightenment is being sourced by our soul.”

Assembly Required

“Until we discover who we are, we can never be who we need.”

Prelude to a Vision:

After 49 years on this earth, 25 I consider intentionally conscious, I felt inspired to envision what I would express to all the “usual suspects” of the assembly in a State of the Union scenario.  Fully understanding the classist, elitist, superiority filters to which most of them desperately cling, my expectations, though justified, are as low as their apparent ethics, impartiality and unconditional service to the people they pledge to represent. Perhaps it is the inner child in me who looks beyond the impossibility of transforming the self-righteous instincts, thoughts and ideologies of the representatives we elect.  If anything, I am certain the following address will be therapeutic in the least.  Enjoy!

Members of Congress and Senate, Executive, Judicial and Legislative Branches, State and Local Representatives, honored guests of this assembly and most importantly fellow citizens.  I would first like to express my appreciation and gratitude for the opportunity to observe how things are and share a vision of how things can and in time will be.  I am aware of the gravity of this great privilege and the liberty I choose to express in these moments with each of you.

The intention of this address is not to dictate with unreasonable expectation, rather to share the empowerment and inspiration of what is possible considering the dire circumstances of our time.  Though our beliefs, ideologies, neighborhoods, bank accounts, positions and social standings may be diverse, it is important to acknowledge the powerful similarities of our humanity.

At any moment in our life we face multiple opportunities and outcomes granting us the ability to choose to make a difference in our lives and those of others.  We have all been conditioned through institutions of education, religion, heredity, reality and society.  Though all of these may offer their own benefit, they do not define who we are or who we may become.

Becoming who we are meant to be is a personal path.  One rife with vital challenges through which we all must navigate to establish our unique way of being.  It is only as difficult as we choose to make it.  And now, we are all making it nearly impossible for future generations to survive let alone thrive.

We may believe we are not a part of the existing problems causing the evident obstacles of crime, disease, hate, illness, poverty, social inequality, injustice and unrest, the genocide of cultures, the annihilation of nature and the exploitation and manipulation of humanity.

We are.

We may believe we are making a great contribution to the world as we harbor selfish lifestyles of greed, gossip, self-righteousness and vanity.

We aren’t.

We may believe the society we enable with our participation won’t devolve into further decline, destruction and mayhem.

It will.

We may believe our intelligence, faith, heredity and the personal empires we build will somehow transform the world.

They won’t.

We may believe the solutions to society’s greatest problems we have invented will eventually correct humanity’s course.

They won’t.

We may even believe we can place the weight of the world’s future upon those who have not yet been born.

We can’t.

Our daily reality is rife with busy-ness; distraction, diversion, manipulation and perversion that give us little to no time to live, let alone breathe.  I believe life is not a battle, rather an experience to enrich our soul, expand our hearts, inspire our minds and empower our instincts.  Yet our daily social structures are honed upon the common vicious cycles of acquiescence, amusement, criticism, consumption, debate, evasion and judgement.

A sociopath is one with a personality disorder manifesting itself in extreme antisocial attitudes and behavior and a lack of conscience, otherwise termed as a maniac, psychotic, lunatic, you get the picture.  It is my belief that we are a desensitized, self-centered, sociopathic society.  What is most terrifying about this observation is most are either oblivious to the notion or would flat out deny it given our current climate.

The callous society we all enable with our participation has become a great beast fed by our addictions, anxieties, confusion, emptiness, fears, oblivion and rivalry.  Whatever position of power we may hold within it does not diminish the truth that we all fall victim to its deceptive seductions.  In this vast sea of humanity, there is always a bigger fish that may challenge our belief, ideology, understanding and truth.

There are times when we find agreement with others.  There is a vital balance between establishing and sustaining relations and empowering and evolving our truth.  Acknowledging and accepting the fundamental diversities that exist between us allows us to encourage others as well as ourselves.  Supporting others in envisioning and manifesting their identity and purpose inspires us to express our own.

Democracy is defined as “an assembly in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.” As I gaze around this room, I see congress people, senators, justices and executives, yet I do not see the people who elected each of you into these positions.  I do not hear the visions, dreams, passions and needs of the people.  Their voices are silent in this historic hall of democracy.

Equality is abolished by social evasion.  Justice is blinded by judicial jargon.  Liberty is shackled by contemporary law.  Freedom is pawned for patriotic fantasy.  War is waged for control and greed.  Unity is sacrificed on the altar of conditioned social division.  Consciousness is deliberately debunked as conspiracy.  Health and wellbeing are forfeit for profit. And goodwill is criminalized to desensitize and segregate.

This is not a society we would be a part of even in our nightmares.  This is not a reality we would have accepted when we were young and evolving, when making a difference still meant something.  Ours is not a life we would have chosen to live with our truest self.  This is not a world we would have committed to with our soul, heart, mind and person for the benefit of all.

The definition of insanity is “doing the same things and being the same person over and over again expecting different outcomes.”  Yet, we continue to gravitate into social malaises of compliance, denial, desperation, indifference and futility.  All the while presenting an inauthentic brave face to covet our egos, fears, insecurities, malevolence and above all truth.  Even at the cost of our lives.

All is not lost.  There is still time to awaken to the stark realities we have enabled.  There is still time to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves off.  There is still time to accept the opportunity that has always been there for each of us since the moment we were born.  There is still time to rise to the occasion of our personal vision, mission and purpose.  Both the creation of our own and the empowerment of others.

It begins by letting go.  Of everything and everyone that and who no longer empower or inspire us.  It begins by taking a breath and encouraging ourselves to be present in the present to the best of our ability.  It begins by being with the silence that comes and extending that into our listening of others, especially if they do not share our beliefs, ideology, understanding and truth.  It begins by being the greatest expression of a human being.

No matter what may come, good, bad or indifferent, it is not only our responsibility, yet our opportunity to personally participate in the ever evolving expression of human consciousness, equality, freedom, health, justice, liberty and unity for all.  Only we can be all we are destined.  Only we can express all that empowers us.  Only we can cause the difference we inspire.  Only we can transform our life and in so being, society, reality and the world.

It is with the greatest appreciation I thank you for your interest, listening and presence all of you have given as I have shared my vision of what is and what is possible in the days to come.  I earnestly believe and have faith in the vision and spirit of amity, democracy, purpose, realization and unity.  And until my final breath it is my intention to become who I am to make a difference for one and all.

Thank you!
