Opportunity for a Lifetime

“Only in the greatest adversity
we learn the difference between
what we think we want
and what we know we need.”

Lights, Camera, Action!
Social reality is accelerating and intensifying with every breath. If it was not evident before it most certainly is now. Widespread caution, hyperactive hysteria and imminent threat are everywhere. In an instant, concerts, sporting events and religious gatherings were cancelled. Bars, restaurants and movie theaters shuttered amidst the probabilities of what might occur. “Social Distancing” is an essential and popular lifestyle, though we often trend in that direction. The world is a much cleaner place as the absence of humanity in nature and the civilized world has had an immediate effect.

Agenda of Deception:
As obvious as the impacts of our current pandemic, political undercurrents are more apparent as recent events progress before our eyes. It is not just human beings victimized by disease, hardship and happenstance. Many ploys are transpiring in addition to the outbreak of a virus. Typically, when tragedy strikes in whatever form it may, there are always multiple, covert strategies being executed. A callous and clever few always seem to benefit from the simulated catastrophes that occur. This insight is the key to understanding and accepting the real tapestry of terror now reigning free at the heart of humanity.

OFL XV

The Usual Suspects:
Believe it or not, there has always been an elite sect of society who lack the commitment or willingness for community, empathy, morals and unity. Whether it is their genetics, ideologies, pedigree or privilege, there is an innate abyss between their desire and humanity. Power and profit rules supreme at the core of their objectives. Their desensitized rearing renders them oblivious to transcendent intuition, emotion and intellect. These ethical deficiencies are motivation for committing atrocities, maladies and tragedies for the sake of capital gain, influence and outcome. No crime is foreign to their appetite for power.

Fictional Reality:
What is real is rarely what it seems. The distortion, manipulation and representation of reality is rhetorical, selective and subjective. Even perception of it has become mutable in the extreme. Technically it no longer exists. It is more likely we live in the oblivion of opinion than in the domain of actuality. Little by little the social paradigm of life has been modified into a projected illusion. The movie we call reality will always amuse, deceive, distract and entertain from the cradle to the grave. We are mere spectators watching the performers further promote the propaganda of their producers.

OFL V

Diversion of Power:
We are multidimensional beings interacting with infinite realms of existence in any moment. We have the power to create, inspire, intend and manifest anything into our experience, even to the extent of transforming our reality and the world. Yet, it is our inclination to give our personal power away to authoritarian parties for fear of being accountable, authentic and conscientious. We often misinterpret this as a burden which distorts and diminishes our experience with our power. It harvests confusion, denial and doubt, further justifying our decision to acquiesce our unique self-expression in times when it is most necessary.

“We are all universal when we choose to be.”

Lifetime Opportunity:
During this contemporary, health pandemic, nature is reclaiming its breath and dominion. Traffic, overpopulation and the global carbon footprint are on the decline as society retreats in isolation for its survival. Mother Nature has placed us on house arrest. We have an extraordinary opportunity to shift our focus from the external world to the inner and beyond. Whatever introspection we may practice, our choice to become present to and relate with ourselves and the universe is our freedom from all we consent to socially enslaves us. Now we have the energy, time and space to empower our personal enlightenment.

channeling

Transcendental Shift:
We are in an extraordinary transition of energy. One requiring our awareness and engagement. Its quickening is evident, extreme and omnipresent. Fantasy and illusion are the echoes and shadows of existence, fading into social oblivion. All diversions vying for the focus of our attention and consciousness amidst the influence of our addictions are vanishing with the clarity of our evolving truth. No matter how challenging, overwhelming or impossible it may seem to endure and navigate our way through this experience, expressing our heart and soul is essential.

Conscious Intentions:
Education engenders oblivion. Experience teaches wisdom. Intuition is the key to the universe. Creativity, consciousness and truth are diamonds in the rising darkness. We exist in a social reality that does not empower the people. In the interest of control, society diminishes our universal experience with a two-dimensional perception in a three-dimensional reality. It is up to us to free ourselves from this social vicious cycle with our vision, intention and purpose. Now more than ever, our lives and those of others depend on our choice to transcend the boundaries of the illusion and become an expression of universality.

OFL XVII

Pioneers of Purpose:
Human history is empowered by imagination, intuition and intelligence. Inspiration is the force that moves the world. Each one of us has a unique destiny to fulfill. Whatever and however it manifests, the difference it makes is vital to all. We are explorers navigating the terrain of social reality, discovering and becoming our purpose. Our personal power thrives when we choose to kindle it with our creativity. In these extreme times, the challenges facing us all are opportunities to transcend duality, disease and fear by transforming our experience with multidimensionality, wellbeing and love.

All Our Relations:
The current global situation calls for social separation, yet the notion of greater division between us all due to health necessity and the survival of society merits serious contemplation. For generations, we have consciously and instinctively trended toward segregation when given the opportunity to relate. Our intuitive nature is to connect, unite and belong. It is what inspires our greatest expressions, experiences and power. Social empowerment, transcendence and evolution are created by who we are being in our relations. Each of us brings the unique genius of our soul. Enlightenment is our choice to express and empower universality for all.

“Alone we may survive, together we will thrive.”

“Energy is the essence of the universe.”

Rude Awakening:
When I was eight years old, my mom took my brother and I to the bank. While we were there, my brother wandered into the safe. My Mom went to retrieve him, and I was briefly left alone on the ground. I found a paperclip and inquisitively inserted it into an electrical floor socket. An intense current surged through every facet of my being. From what I can remember, everything and everyone disappeared. I recall feeling connected with an energy more expansive and profound than I could imagine. It was a powerful experience that inspired me to become present to life beyond reality.

Rhyme and Resonance:
Forty years after my encounter, I still feel the pulse of the electrical current. In those brief, remarkable moments, all that I had believed, observed and perceived shattered. After decades of personal evolution, experience and reflection, I realized the social foundations of intelligence, reality and relativity are intended illusions to distract us from our destiny and truth. Our heart emanates a powerful field of electromagnetic energy that sources and sustains our imagination, intuition and universality. Its resonance is the soul of our creativity and the consciousness that empowers its fulfillment.

US VIII

Tapestry of Universality:
Every living being is connected to the universe. Society manipulates us into believing separation is the fundamental paradigm of reality. Linear experience is the enslavement of humanity. It diminishes and destroys our potentiality. Everything exists in multifaceted mandalas of energy. The universe sources and inspires our creativity, expression and existence. We are all threads woven into a multidimensional tapestry. When we stream infinite consciousness, universality empowers our present. This is the essence of enlightenment and we are the medium for its manifestation.

Cruising the Currents:
All things have potential to exist within the ebbs and flows of energy. The most challenging experiences we encounter have an optimal occurrence and outcome. Nearly all human events occur in two- or three-dimensional reality. What happens, how we live and who we are being as they transpire are a result of our vision and intention. In any experience, we can choose to flow with the energetic currents of opportunity and empower our path to manifest our purpose. The nature of our interaction with them allows us to transcend and transform linear existence into multidimensionality.

US XVIII

Transitory Being:
For decades, I have been having extradimensional “experiences.” (ref: “A History of Mystery.”) I understand them to be spirit journeys which occur as soon as I fall asleep. I am aware in these diverse realms, and often I can recall them in detail. My recollections are all mental, emotional, intuitive and spiritual. I can see the room I am in, yet it is distinct from its physical counterpart. In this space, multiple dimensions exist together in an elaborate domain of being. Sometimes I have the focus of consciousness to observe my soul and express the will power to return to terrestrial reality. Though, most often I shift into other dimensions.

“Being is a universal experience.”

Souljourn:
There is an electromagnetic sphere around the earth. It protects our planetary ecosystem and shields us from asteroids, meteors, radiation, solar flares and the vacuum of space. When we sleep, we tend to broad stroke our experiences as REM activity. Yet, there is more transpiring than dreams. Our soul travels beyond the boundaries of our comprehension, imagination and existence. We pass through the earth’s electromagnetic energy into infinite dimensions of being. The potency of this energy makes it nearly impossible to remember where we go and what we encounter.

US X

Axis of Awareness:
Dreams are a fraction of what we experience when we shift consciousness. I can remember conversations and events in alternate dimensions with people in my daily life. Some seem trivial, while others significant. When I share these experiences with the people in them, many cannot relate. I feel and sense they were a part of the encounter, yet they simply do not recall. There is a purpose to these dimensional shifts and experiences. Much as our mind invents dreams to subconsciously send messages, our soul inspires these conscious experiences to encourage our universality.

Creative Destiny:
In all my extradimensional experiences, I encounter an intense electromagnetic energy that immobilizes me. When I awaken into physical reality, this energy eventually synergizes with all domains of my being. It is a conscious essence that empowers the expression of my creativity. Bringing this energy to everyday life is our common destiny. Its unique power allows us to express our universality into social reality. Our intuition channels quantum shifts in our consciousness. It sources our vision and intention to manifest the universe and transform our experience.

US XII

Empowerment of Enlightenment:
We are multidimensional beings of energy. The four primary facets of our existence are the body, mind, heart and soul. When they are in evolutionary balance, our intuition connects the seven energy centers of our being with the universe. This synthesis is the key to opening the gateway between linear reality and universality. It gives us the ability to resonate with infinitely powerful, energetic frequencies. Though the words I choose to articulate these extraordinary experiences pale in comparison to their true nature, their energy currents empower our enlightenment.

Being the Stream:
Our soul’s purpose is to become an embodiment of the universe. How we bring this energy into reality is essential. Much as the elements of electricity, we are either resistors or conductors. When we oppose universal energy with our fear, our resistance disrupts and distorts its potential. When we choose to flow with the frequencies, our intention expands and fulfills our experience. Our conductivity with this energy empowers enlightened consciousness. We become expressions of the universe. Every creative experience we have is an opportunity for us to connect with the source and become one with the universal stream.

“Creativity is the art of streaming the universe.

The Art of Being

“Being is truly living.”

The First Step:
Twenty-three years ago, I was living a lie. Fresh out of adolescence, I dove into a social scene that offered only escape from the experience of life. No matter how much I strove to succeed, I was faced with a stark reality.  Society does not promote or support creativity or its expression. Fond memories remain of the adventurous and daring endeavors of my youth, pushing the established boundaries and leaving what I hoped would be my watermark. Then one day I woke up hungover as I usually did at the time. I realized I was done living an illusion. It was time to shift my experience.

Blind Epiphany:
I don’t recall what it was that brought me to this insight. Something stirred deep down inside me, beyond my understanding. It was like catching a wave and riding it in faith one day I would end up in a better space. I felt a powerful flow drawing me into the embrace of a destiny I could have never imagined. All the people in my life gradually went their own ways into the promise of maturity, security and society. Without my daily distractions, delusions and vices, I was left with who I had become, an arrogant, self-righteous, human vortex imposing myself and my ego upon the world.

WTB IV

Purification:
Through my personal revelations, I let go of who I was to envision and create who I could be. During this purification, I experienced all possibility. An explosion of consciousness evolved out of my willingness to transform. Everything I released from my life inspired a quickening of my creative focus, intent and purpose. My transition from illusion to reality was swift and smooth. Suddenly I was exercising, meditating, writing and experiencing personal awakenings. My vision cleared and a new lifestyle emerged. One that led me on a path of creativity, consciousness, empowerment and insight.

As Within…So Without:
My life and how I perceived it to be transitioned simultaneously. When I chose to be progressive, my experience expanded. When I regressed, it contracted based on my lack of focus, intent and purpose. I began to express and manifest my reality. My mind and body were a microcosm to the macrocosm of my heart and soul. The synergy between the four dimensions of my being, my intuition, feelings, thoughts and actions, revealed the existence of experiences I had always yearned to encounter, yet failed to discover and embrace.

WTB XI

The Solitary Way:
We see ourselves through many different perspectives, none more enlightening than another’s point of view. Often in life, we are faced with opportunities to disengage from society and walk our own path. This is vital when choosing to become who we are meant to be. However grand it may seem to socially belong, eventually we all must venture beyond the established realities of others to create and experience our own. It is a lonely journey navigating a personal maze of mirrors. Though both challenging and rewarding, it is our pathway to personal fulfillment. The darkest nights of our soul ultimately become the brightest days of our lives.

“The present is the only moment in which we can be.”

Pathways of Purpose:
We all have practices to establish the focus of our intention. Be they creative, educational, healing, spiritual or in service to others, how we identify and express ourselves is the embodiment of our soul. When we accept our opportunities to progress, we inspire our experience. For the last twenty-three years, I have been empowered by proactive and progressive ways to transcend social reality and make a difference. If we are not willing to give of ourselves and our lives to transform our experience, we are merely marking time, awaiting the inevitable. There is nothing more gratifying and momentous than our goodwill.

WTB VI

Insight and Inspiration:
Who we become and how we live is inspired by what motivates us. Our lives are littered with social errands, obligations and responsibilities constantly coercing us into surviving instead of thriving. Something new must be created for us to break out of the common, vicious cycles in which we subscribe. Our intuition and heart allow us to transcend social reality. When I chose to be guided in this way, it elevated and expanded my experience. My vision empowered my creativity, epiphany and possibilities beyond my imagination. I became engaged in a multidimensional dance with the universe.

Age of Empowerment:
We live in an extraordinary era. A transition is occurring shifting us from rigid, social standards to identifying, claiming and expressing our personal power. We all have the potential to be the leaders we look for in others. It simply requires us to embrace our opportunity, express our purpose and manifest our destiny. When I transformed my perception of how I experience life, it became less about obligation and more about inspiration. The definition of success is not monetary, it is energetic. The life force I receive from the universe is equivalent to the quality of my focus, intent and purpose.

WTB VIII

Being Energy:
We are who we chose to be. We are a body, mind, heart and soul. Yet most importantly, we are a vessel of universal energy. When we maintain balance with the dimensions of our being, we align with and express our fullest potential. The essence of who we are is the difference we choose to make in service to others. Giving for the sake of giving is what truly conveys our humanity, relativity and divinity. Sharing our creativity, energy and universality is what empowers our vision, passion and willpower. Our energy is what transforms our being and experience.

The Art of Being:
Shifting our focus from egocentricity to philanthropy is the soul of our transformation. As present as we are to others is as present as we are to ourselves. When we listen with an intent to hear, we are truly being. This is our relativity with the universe. When we choose to serve others, we embody universality by holding a sacred space for all to be. Imagination is the breath of the universe. Being is the way we align with the universe to empower us as an expression of its creativity.

“Being is the essence of the universe.”

WTB V

One for All

“Survival is the deception of humanity.”

Society of Self:
The dynamics of social reality are designed around the individual self. Survival is the modus operandi enforced upon us long before we have the cognizance to observe let alone transcend it. The distinction between surviving and thriving is as significant as living from our head or our heart. Civilization is an all-encompassing reflection of our egocentricity. Selfishness distorts and manipulates us and the reality in which we enable with our engagement. We are constantly driven toward personal advancement, achievement and recognition. Success is based upon what we emulate and acquire instead of who we are and what we create.

Charity Lost:
Before we are molded into maturity by the cruel hands of institutional influence and social obligation, our inherent nature is to be empowering, equitable, generous and kind. Our support for each other is essential to our transformation. It inspires us to become someone more than we are and how we appear. Yet, we sacrifice our choice to express our acceptance and empathy due to our fear of a lack and/or loss of our personal power. Our hands once charitable as children become conservative as adults. We abandon our need for community to preserve our individual interests and status.

OFA IV

Possibility on Purpose:
Howsoever we choose to manifest our lives begins with a possibility. It is a vision that represents the who, what and why of our personal mission. Within our choice is the opportunity of establishing the beneficiaries of our intention. Most are enrolled in the selfish social pattern of being the sole recipient of their life purpose. True fulfillment is giving for the sake of giving without attachment, entitlement or expectation of a return on investment. Our universality is a multidimensional expression of creativity, energy and infinite possibility. The focus of our intention is the pathway to our purpose.

Manifestation by Intention:
We often decide to surrender our lives to blind fate and circumstance. Yet, we can choose to consciously devote them to realizing our destiny. Our intent is what defines our existence. Every minute of every day is an opportunity to inhale possibility and exhale manifestation. Our commitment to this practice provides us the ability to transform any experience we may encounter from one of personal tragedy to triumph. Who we choose to be and how we serve others is the difference between one person winning and everyone thriving. In every moment we have the power to create our present.

OFA V (2)

A World of Difference:
Our greatest possibility is making a difference. We are constantly given opportunities to enrich and inspire our lives and those of others. Our choice to do so instantly transforms our experience from one lived in the fear of deficiency to one inspired by a commitment for all to flourish. We eventually become imprisoned by a sentence of solitary life with the conceited perceptions we willingly adopt rather than the freedom of choosing to empower community. Every day in every way we have a choice to make a difference. It is what allows us to transcend the commandments of social reality.

“Service is the nature of the universe.”

From Here to Epiphany:
We are socially influenced to manipulate our behavior and environments in order to achieve the lives we believe bring gratification, wholeness and worth. When we embody, surround and defend ourselves with static existence, the starkest reality we never behold is that we are the warden of our personal prison. Everything we already are, do, know or have is a fixed way of being inhibiting our ability to evolve and transform. Insights are the keys to the fulfillment of our experience. They are multidimensional occurrences that open the vision of our perception and empower us to become the expression of our purpose.

OFA VI

The Dynamic of Being:
We are the totality of our actions, thoughts, feelings and energy. How we occur to ourselves and others is defined by who we choose to be. Yet, it is much more than the characteristics of our identity. The universe, our soul, intuition, heart, mind and body are all essential aspects of our existence. Our consciousness emanates from the entirety of our being. The balance and full expression of these facets functioning in concert along with our focused intent creates the paradigm in which we become authors of our experience. It only requires our choice and dedication to fulfill our destiny.

True Calling:
The difference between being ordinary and extraordinary is the distinction between receiving for ourselves alone and giving for the sake of giving. Social reality recognizes charity as optional. In some parts of the world it is even illegal! As trivial as this may seem, service to others is the foundation of belonging, creativity, community and evolution. It is the most powerful form of being that connects us with ourselves, others and the universe. Our personal transformation is best expressed in the difference we make. Each of us has a common mission to serve each other for the sake of all.

OFA III

A Passion for Purpose:
We are the vision, mission, intention and purpose we empower. Our lives are opportunities to transform our selves, experiences and realities. The personal power we emulate is our catalyst to transcend all that is to be most present in the present. Our purpose inspires us to surpass even who we believe or perceive ourselves to be. Being an expression of the universe allows us to embrace and embody its fulfillment. When we are motivated by our intention to serve, everything in our imagination is conceivable. The extraordinary becomes ordinary and our purpose becomes our life.

One for All:
Who, how and why we are is our choice. The true measure of our humanity is in all we give and share. Every moment in the present is an opportunity to transcend social reality, source possibility and transform our selves. When we live with an intention of enrichment, we set a precedent of creativity, community and workability. The will to thrive together becomes the inspiration for all that is possible. If one of us falls, we all fall. When one of us rises, we all rise. Our commitment to transform our experience from a competition to a movement of purpose manifests universal destiny for all.

“All we are is all we give.”

OFA VII

 

Transcendental Shift

“We are the key to the universe.”

Opposing Forces:
We are our greatest adversary. Our tendency is to emulate doubt, fear, indifference and self-sabotage. We demonize authenticity, accountability, integrity and purpose because we are programmed by the social dysfunctions of arrogance, egocentricity and self-righteousness. We obsessively analyze and dismiss most of our opportunities because they do not fit our desired perception of how we believe they should be. Every day we assassinate more often than empower ourselves. Our societal conditioning suppresses our consciousness, evolution and transformation.

Life in Illusion:
Reality is not real. It is an archaic social deception designed to amuse, distract, entertain and preoccupy us from becoming extraordinary beings. Every day we are beholden to abide by and sponsor the commandments of society. Yet, it is an instinctual and intellectual prison for our emotions, intuition and soul. The more we accept and conform to the parameters of reality, the more we comply and surrender to it. Eventually we begin to believe embodying and enabling a lie is easier than creating and becoming our truth. In a world of illusion, what is true is often perceived as an inconvenience.

ts ii

The Opportunity of Fear:
Fear is the destroyer of worlds. It impacts and influences us on a cellular level of being. Because we do not possess an equivalent consciousness, we are unable to conquer let alone identify our own fear. It is an inevitable dance with the enigma of our existence. One that seemingly eludes our every intention. Fear becomes a part of our nature and experience. The very thought of it passes a debilitating impression upon us long before we are aware of its presence. Fear is simply our unconscious interpretation of raw energy yet to be transformed into our personal power.

Spark to a Flame:
There are many instances in our lives when we are given opportunities to live our destined path. These occasions are happening in every moment of the present. It is our choice to acknowledge and claim them as they transpire. Though it is not feasible to fulfill on every prospect we encounter, these experiences empower and inspire us toward a life we love. They are most evident in the expression of our contentment, happiness and the difference we choose to make. The spark of our vision ignites our intention to reveal infinite possibilities for the manifestation of our purpose.

ts ix

Flame to a Fire:
Our passion is the expression of our power. Whatever kindles our desire and will to evolve and transform sources our being. When our heart, mind and body are in alignment with our intention, our intuition connects us with our soul and the eternal, infinite energy of the universe. Possibility emanates from the synergy of our multi-dimensionality. How, why and who we are being is the essence of our instincts, thoughts, feelings and insights. The quality of our consciousness accelerates and expands all we express into the world. We are universal ambassadors personifying energy.

“Energy is the currency of consciousness.”

Stroke of Insight:
Revelation is the mother of transformation. When we shift our perception from the ordinary to the extraordinary, our experience is expanded by the expression of our consciousness. Freedom from our everyday life requires us to release the known of our existence and become aware of the infinite, ever-present possibilities. Everything we already understand of ourselves and the world only inhibits our full potential. Our opportunities are only as diverse as we perceive and intend them to be. We must be willing to step out of the image we portray and the reality we adopt to become multi-dimensional beings.

ts

Power of Authenticity:
We shift our experience when we are being authentic. This is almost impossible in a superficial, social reality. Authenticity has become a pastime practiced most often in exclusive company. Yet, it is at the heart of our transformation. Personal power is not expressed by our criticism, judgement and opinion of others. True integrity and vision are found in our ability to accept ourselves and others as we are and as we are not. When we appreciate and honor our strengths and weaknesses, we empower ourselves to express consideration, kindness and understanding for all.

The Will to Serve:
Many are called, yet few are chosen. Leadership isn’t about authority, dictation or management. The true expression of how we lead is found in the measure of our service to the world and how we empower others to claim their own. There is nothing more gratifying than making a difference. This inevitably creates an enriching social reaction of evolution, good will and purpose, inspiring others to experience the fulfillment service provides. We are not just born to achieve our own agenda, need, want or survival. We truly thrive when we choose to share our unique contribution with the intention of transforming the consciousness of humanity.

ts viii

Transcendance:
There is an energetic flow to everything at every time in every experience. The dynamics vary dependent upon our circumstance and our awareness. However, we always have an opportunity to shift our being according to the present so we may rise above the chaotic, dense and destructive frequencies to embrace those that are conscious, positive and progressive. It is not something we can encounter merely with our instinct or intellect. It is something we feel with our heart and intuit with our soul. We are always at the center of our experience. Therefore, we have the power to transcend and transform.

True Emanation:
We are a soul empowering our life through the experiences of our heart, mind and body. Our intuition is a multi-dimensional pathway that connects our consciousness with the world and the universe. We are a lightning bolt of energy expressing our soul into reality and transforming it with our creativity. We are a bridge of potentiality sourcing our experience by who we choose to be. The totality of our being is the instrument through which we cause our personal shift. All of us are developing and transitioning ourselves into our universality. Our life is an opportunity to express our soul and become who we are meant to be.

“Enlightenment is consciousness of being.”

ts xi

A Being of Power

“Who we are being is the origin of our power.”

As It Seems:
Social reality is an intricate tapestry of chaos, duality and oblivion. It is a human invention we enable and sustain into existence with our participation. A paradigm imposed upon us to provide a societal orientation, standard and structure. We live it into being with our apathy, dependence, doubt and indifference. Yet, it doesn’t benefit or serve us. It only maintains a routine status quo to give the impression of empowering opportunity, though delivering a fraction of the potential it promises. Reality is a slight-of-perception con that preoccupies us with perpetual distraction. It is a security blanket we use to avoid our purpose.

So It Is:
We are all captive to linear existence. Duality reigns with a strong arm of constant opposition. The burden of surviving far overshadows the freedom of thriving. Our pursuit to carve out a paltry role for ourselves within society diminishes our vision and passion to create and fulfill our destiny. Social regulation and restriction stymy our ability to transcend all we know of life to embrace all that is possible. Familiarity and predictability are anchors that tether us to our artificial comfort, security and understanding. Our lives are only as abundant and expansive as we choose to live.

ABOP III

Innocence Lost:
Social reality is pulled over our eyes from an early age. The ruse is more apparent to us in our youth. Our curious observation allows us to see things as they truly are before we are methodically indoctrinated into its deception. As we grow accustomed to the illusion, we invest our lives into it. Eventually, we divert our energy and focus away from our awareness, creativity, destiny and truth. We replace our purpose with desire, chasing a life that is not our own. As we mature into adulthood, our intent becomes one of satisfying the desires of our ego instead of cultivating the fulfillment of our soul.

Against the Grain:
We must disengage from our personal dramas, judgements, opinions and vices to escape the enslavement of reality. What makes our freedom seemingly impossible is our addiction and oblivion to our behaviors, habits and thoughts. Our pursuit for advantage, control and self-righteousness diminishes our ability to express our personal power. We lose it only when we surrender it to others or our circumstances. Our fear of claiming and living our power prevents our potential to become it. Far too often we obstruct our own way and negate our possibilities well before they appear.

ABOP VI

Paradigm Shift:
When things in our life are not working or as well as they could, we have an opportunity to transform them in ways that transcend our expectations. What we need most is a necessity for centering, grounding and living. Breathing instantly shifts our awareness. Focusing on our breath as we inhale and exhale gives us the ability to become present to much more than ourselves and our environments. It allows us to shift from an existence of doing to an experience of being. When we are conscious of our breath, we reclaim our balance, expression and power. Our breath is our fountain of youth.

“Our power is in the stillness beyond its strength.”

The Journey Within:
The greatest dilemma humanity will ever encounter is seeking outside of itself for what can only be found within. Social reality is teeming with billions of actions and thoughts all ricocheting off our collective cognizance. The universe within is far more beneficial than the one around us. Simply closing our eyes to the visual world and becoming an observer of society and our self transforms our experience. We awaken to all that is possible by synching our body, mind and heart with our soul. When we free ourselves from the encompassing imposition of reality, we begin to embrace our true power.

ABOP VII

Present in the Present:
When we disengage from the reality around us through our breath and observation, our being shifts into a multi-dimensional experience. Everything that preoccupied our instincts, thoughts and feelings disappears. All we are aware of is now. How we are present in the present establishes the relationship we have with our essence. The moment in which we are conscious expands into eternity. We become a universal expression through which we empower ourselves and others. We coexist with all that was, is and ever will be. Every imaginable possibility is available for us to intend and embody.

Universal Voice:
We are creators. Whether we are artists, musicians or writers in any form of medium, we all have the capacity to envision and manifest our spirit into our reality. This is the foundation of who we become and how we exist. The purpose of our creativity defines the power we personify. It is up to us to choose how, why and who we are in our life. Our intuition conveys the energy and purpose of our soul to inspire our imagination. Our heart feels and our mind articulates the insights we encounter. We are all messengers of the universe, destined to be an expression of the source.

ABOP VIII

The Power of Purpose:
Power is not a force we impose on others to gain an advantage or supplement our fear and insecurity. Nor is it a means to an end. It is the pathway that guides our destiny. The focus of our intent is what manifests all we imagine. Our purpose is what inspires our vision and mission. Our daily practice of it fulfills our calling. Though everything that is not our destiny will arise to challenge our intention, all we encounter further defines and strengthens our commitment. All we become originates and empowers our intent. Our personal power is the manifestation of our purpose.

The Art of Being:
We are not the sum of our ability, belief, education or wisdom. These are all reflective features that merely complement our identity. Our instinct, thought, emotion and intuition define our experience. The balance between the four dimensions of our being sustains our relationship with our spirit. Our commitment to express our soul into reality is who we are in the present. This is the key that opens us to everything beyond what our body can perform, our mind can think, our heart can feel and our intuition can envision. Our ability to create our life is a blessing beyond our imagination. Who we are being is our power to transform ourselves and the world.

“The only power that will ever fulfill us is our own.”

ABOP

In the Shadow of Brilliance

“To follow is human, to lead is divine.”

Human Nature:
We are born into a reality designed to condition us into submission. Our daily lifestyle is rooted in a default pattern of blind servitude. We are enslaved by an artificial realism so ingenious it exploits our belief to sustain its existence. Our human virtues are used against us in a merciless and relentless social control system. Once we become engaged in a two-dimensional perception within the three-dimensional reality, we forfeit our connection with our intuition and soul. Our vision narrows, our intention is repressed and our experience is transmuted from one of action to reaction.

Social Programming:
Our dependence begins before we are born. Social standards foster our reliance upon others. Though we have the freedom and opportunity to enlighten ourselves with our experience, we are conditioned through education, environment, heredity and religion. Therefore, many never fulfill their personal development of individuation. Society alters, diminishes and distorts our creativity, insight and originality into an everyday routine of intellect, desire and instinct. Adolescence is our last stand before we inevitably abandon our choice to make a difference in our lives and the world.

dependence

Boundaries of Being:
We are not encouraged to thrive on our destined path. We merely survive the constant imposition of authoritarian social agendas to dehumanize and desensitize us into ordinary thoughts, behaviors and actions. The balance between positive and negative in the critical mass of humanity trends grossly toward the latter. Human negativity has woven its chaotic and dense frequencies into the roots of our existence. Social reality isolates us in numerous ways to stimulate our animosity, envy and opposition. It uses our own anger, doubt, fear and resignation to condemn us into a dualistic state of being.

Design of Dependence:
Our social conditioning is stimulated by an inauthentic obligation to coexist. Most relationships are compromised by conflict, culpability and dysfunction. We are socially obligated to be reliant upon others. This false necessity provides a fruitless experience that ultimately leads to separation. It is not the alienation between us and the people in our lives that causes our loneliness. It is the dissociation we have with our self that leads to this widespread societal disorder. Our apathy, doubt, fear and futility produce delusions of bravery, certainty, fortitude and grandeur. We are programmed to be dependent upon others at the cost of our soul.

Shadow

Into Shadow:
We are raised to follow. Once we are institutionally indoctrinated into the captivity of reality, we instinctively settle into lifestyles of social opposition. Our lack of commitment, confidence and practice in our lives prevents their fulfillment. The visions of others appear more credible to us than clarifying, expressing and manifesting our own. We emulate them out of desperation to conform instead of creating our own with the intention of belonging. In the moment we decide to follow in another’s footsteps, we sacrifice our vision, personal power and purpose. Inevitably, we resign our leadership and become a shadow of our self.

“Truth to one is a lie for another.”

A Dime a Dozen:
There are millions of charismatic, overconfident people who line up to take a swing at our curious sensibilities. Those who possess just enough arrogance, ego and knowledge to believe their perception of how our life is best lived. It is easy for them to assume this role when we become enchanted by their alluring presence, eloquent expression and magnetic personality. Yet, when the rubber of their wisdom meets the road of our daily experience, it fails to deliver fulfillment. We inhibit our soul when we give them our enthusiasm, energy, interest and trust. Our personal power is abandoned for an illusion of being.

Spiritual-Leader

The Forest for the Trees:
Everything we have ever felt, thought, said, done or been resides in the oblivion of our memory. We cling to our triumphs and downfalls of the past and the promise and anxiety of our future. Who we were yesterday or who we are to become does not serve us in the present. All of us yearn for belonging, importance, meaning and transformation. Yet, we often fail to create a life that inspires us due to our fear of failure and ridicule. Our true path is one we must walk alone amid great adversity, opposition and uncertainty. Our greatest challenge is being conscious in the moment.

Inner Compass:
We were never meant to follow. Our best opportunity in life is to disengage from the mainframe of social reality and relate exclusively with our soul and the universe. Manifesting our true self, fulfilling our unique purpose and supporting others in theirs is our mutual calling. This is the most challenging path we will ever walk. There are few instructions and fewer signs to guide us. Only the universal force that compels and inspires our creativity, insight and transformation. Every option we choose contrary to our destiny takes us further away from who we are meant to be.

victory

Quest for Fire:
Our lives are burdened with social obligation at the cost of our purpose. The sole shadow we are captive to is our own. We are the only ones who can claim our power. However daunting a task it may be, the utmost form of personal failure is choosing not to embrace and express it. Each of us receive an infinite amount of energy from the universe. This is the multi-dimensional essence that connects our soul with our heart, mind and body. It is the source of our power. How we embody, cultivate and emanate it defines who we become. We are the soul creators of our experience.

Source of Empowerment:
Our life has infinite possibilities. Our choices, intentions, passions and willingness define how it exists in society. It is one thing to emulate an ordinary life based upon our perception, what we know and how we survive. It is another thing entirely to create an extraordinary life based upon our intuition, who we are and how we thrive. We are superconductors who empower, inspire and navigate our way through the chaos, confusion and gravity of social reality. Our choice to manifest our purpose is the only power that will transform our experience.

“Creativity is the expression to our brilliance.”

Eye of the Storm

“We are the wind that defines our weather.”

Approaching Front:
If we don’t see it, we certainly feel the oncoming social tempest looming over the horizon. Centuries of inequality, injustice and oppression bearing down on our human experience with the gravity only reality can impose. Few stand upon its threshold, defiant against the increasing winds of chaos, competition, confusion and fear. Most head for the proverbial hills seeking an illusion of solace. Amid the melee, personal creativity, freedom and truth are exchanged for the societal standard of escapism, in whatever medium available. Yet, the steady train of exploitation, hypocrisy and survival lumbers down the track without pause.

Darkening Skies:
Our long-forgotten, personal baggage is emerging from the murky depths of our subconscious. Decades of our life’s incomplete experiences are rising to the surface of our awareness to be acknowledged, processed and fulfilled. No matter the force of resistance we present to stymie the revelation of our truth, it wells up within us to be transformed. The greater our opposition to our contemporary evolution, the more painful the experience will be. Our inner mental and emotional tides ebb and flow like a tumultuous sea, reminding us of our repressed potentialities we bury along with our fear, failure and vulnerability.

Awakened-Mind

First Rain:
Unbridled thoughts and feelings push us beyond the edge of our knowledge, reason and understanding, shaking our sanity to its very core. What made perfect sense the day before now flies in the face of logic. Life is a game designed to change as quickly as our fleeting mood. Reality digs its heels into the foundations of our experience, perception and existence. Our balance in life is cast to the social elements that keep us in a perpetual state of anxiety, dis-ease and dysfunction. We captivate and incarcerate ourselves with the very societal structures from which we so desperately seek freedom.

Increasing Winds:
Our experience of social reality is becoming progressively intense. The diminishing quality of life, environmental toxicity, opinion-driven media blitzes, political duality, population swells, and religious and spiritual propaganda whips us into a relentless frenzy. Profit-driven, dietary strategies foster our ill health and disease physically. Mental programming stimulates patterns of manmade madness. Inequality and injustice triggers our emotional instability. While the overall impact of daily life dismantles our intuition, exiling us from our soul. This social storm mercilessly pummels us into a dissociated state of oblivion.

SR

Downpour:
Living who we truly are in the chaos of social reality takes tremendous intention, intuition, vision and will power. Characteristics we all must personally identify, develop and manifest into our experience. We live not just against the powerful deceptions of society, yet also the gravity of our own apathy, denial, failure and fear. Everything that transpires outside of us begins within, from the greatest highs to the deepest lows. We are the designers of our lives, for better or worse. Though it seems most often that our fate is the latter due to the archaic, artificial and contrary dynamics of reality. Our existence is an invention in an environment of negative space.

“Our lives are an expression of our consciousness.”

Hail Stones and Head Winds:
In the zenith of our struggle with reality, our lives seem to be falling apart and the world is against us. Even with the greatest of our inspiration and intention, our ideas, expressions and purpose often falls on the deaf ears of a disinterested and preoccupied society. We must endure through merciless social elements for our souls to thrive, our hearts to be fulfilled, our voices to be heard and our actions to be merited. It is during extreme darkness that our light makes the greatest difference. As the social storms crescendo into a fever pitch of chaos, confusion and opposition, our opportunity arises to become our destiny.

BITC II

A Break in the Clouds:
Possibility is the glimmer of hope that begins to transform the gravest of circumstances. It is what allows us to shift our experience from what is to what we choose it to be. The simple insight of understanding that the most challenging situations will pass, no matter how intense they may seem, grants us the ability to shift our perception and embrace our personal power. Our vision, commitment and intention is what breaks our trail and guides us to the eventual outcome we create in the moments we choose to live fully in the present. When we are being in the moment, we begin to calm our inner storm.

Clearing Skies:
Our experience of life is how we react to any given outcome. It is easy to live in the moment and feel fulfilled when things are occurring the way we believe they should. Yet, as soon as struggle arises, we often overlook our intuitive vision, emotional balance, peace of mind and basic instinct to act. When we find ourselves confronted and overwhelmed by our personal storms, it is the opportunity to transform our experience. It takes those difficult moments to awaken us from the regimen of our waking slumber. Personal empowerment, insight and manifestation occurs when we release our attachments and embrace our possibility.

UBV

The Calm at the Core:
Though our bodies endure disease, fatigue and pain, our minds constantly run and our hearts ebb and flow with the tides of our emotionality, our soul is the tranquility of our being. Our tendency is to surrender our personal authority over to others via our lack of self confidence, intention, understanding and trust. We are the problem and the solution. Whatever we give our attention to becomes our life. We have the power to create our experience based upon who, how and why we choose to be. Even amid personal and social chaos, dysfunction, fear and injustice, we have a choice to either reflect our circumstances or become an expression of our soul.

The Eye of the Storm:
Personal transformation is the opportunity for us to shift our experience from frenzied to fulfilled. Though we are constantly tempted by social reality to surrender our personal power with our reactions to daily circumstances, we are solely accountable for our experience. Only we can transform ourselves to identify, embrace and exercise our vision, mission and purpose. As our consciousness expands, our soul’s expression calms the fiercest storms. Being present in the moment inspires us to transcend our daily challenges, allowing us to bring the tranquility of our soul to all aspects of our life.

“At the heart of every storm there is stillness.”

From Now to Eternity

“Energy flows where attention goes.” – Anonymous

Social Psychosis:
Every day, the gravity of reality intensifies. The aftershocks of society’s contrived trauma and tragedy imposes its energetic influence upon us. Our experience of life is one of anxiety, threat and fear. We are so anesthetized to our terror that it has become the foundation of human nature. It governs us with the mere possibility of peril. Our unconscious fear is the silent, invisible assassin of our destiny, purpose and transformation. We adopt a filter of oblivion as a defense mechanism to escape the harsh realisms of contemporary life. Even the force of our resistance to reality is used against us to ensure our captivity.

Broken by Reality:
Before we even choose a path that empowers, inspires or fulfills us, we are socially discouraged, indoctrinated and restricted. Social reality is a rigid structure of rules and regulations designed to prohibit everything diverse from ordinary existence. We are all housebroken by the boundaries of an imposed, linear practicality. It suppresses our individual desire, innovation and purpose. Creativity and imagination is the enemy of authority, industry and reality. Originality is the best impression we can share with the world that makes the greatest difference. In an enslaved society, self-expression is the only thing that offers true freedom.

Lords of Illusion:
We all become masters of deception and deflection. Our personal accountability and integrity is wagered in our narrow pursuit to gain advantage in an ultra-competitive society driven by accumulation, power and status. We grow accustomed to distorting and manipulating our and other’s perception of reality to maintain our image and influence as a lifestyle of self-defense. When given the choice between preserving a lie and living our truth, we often succumb to the former. The subjective nature of reality is such that it can be altered suitably to the agendas of all whom seek to deceive for the sake of authority and dominion.

“Living an illusion for this fantasy.”

Imaginary Life:
What we perceive as reality is an illusion. There are over six billion different perceptions of life unique to each human being. It is impossible for one commonly accepted reality to be considered “real” to all. We may believe, hope or even want it to be genuine, yet it is not. Social reality is a delusion invented to impose an elementary standard of existence. It provides a simulated experience of fulfillment, meaning and security. The distinct measure of our personal truth often slips through the cracks of our broken consciousness. Our personal power is the greatest price we pay for the artificial comfort of a common, predictable fantasy.

Enabled in Numbers:
Social reality exists predominantly as it does because it is empowered en masse by the oblivion of its captives. We are all enslaved by and dependent upon our compliance, denial, indifference and resignation. We find a shallow sense of solace in the notion that our struggle is collective. When we observe the deficiencies of others, it somehow eases the sting of our own. Inauthentic empathy is the illusion of unity. Society is built upon a foundation of mutual failure. Humanity’s momentum is a regressive force of retroactive existence. Our lives are doomed to repeat themselves when we enable vicious cycles of self-centered survival.

“Our vision is our compass…”

An Insight of Vision:
Living an extraordinary life is possible when we release our personal and social conditioning and embrace the mystery of who we may become. If we are the same person we were yesterday, we are forfeiting our potential. Who, how and why we are is vital to clarifying and creating our vision. It is what defines our mission and purpose in life. Whatever it is that both inspires and terrifies us is the very role we were destined to personify. When we are being someone who is dedicated, empowered and intentional, we naturally make a difference every day in every way. Our vision is the origin and expression of our being.

The Pulse of Empowerment:
We are the sole creators and sustainers of our inspiration. It is our responsibility to generate the energy necessary to discover, engender and embody our lives. Our individual empowerment is as vital as our breath. The quality of our experience is caused by our commitment to proactively progress. Our intentionality is the manifestation of our personal power. It is what stimulates our ambition, confidence and desire. It encourages, enlightens and transforms us. When we exercise our inherent ability to shift into new paradigms of being, we become our personal power. Empowerment is the pulse of our existence.

Creativity of Being:
In a virtual society driven by thought, words and action, creativity is an expression of rebellion. It flies in the face of relativity, transcending and transforming the linear construct of reality. Our imagination is the gateway to our freedom from the ordinary boundaries of what is socially accepted and adopted. Creativity is the only aspect of life that can revolutionize our experience, destiny and vision. Before we can shift anything in our lives, we must first begin with ourselves. Who we are in our everyday life is a manifestation of what we envision, feel, think, say and do. The truest expression of our creativity is who we choose to be.

“…our purpose is our life.”

In the Moment:
Our lives are governed by the shadows of our past and a predictable future. We exist somewhere between memory, fantasy and reality. Our destiny becomes an arduous and wayward journey. The only moment that truly matters is the present. There is an eternity of possibility in every instant. Our experience in the moment is how we embody our soul. Our purpose is not what we think we should do or say, it is who we choose to be. Who we are is an expression of our vision, intention and mission. Our destiny is obtained when we release our obsession with the past and create our future by who we are being in the present.

Manifest Destiny:
Destiny is not a linear path. It is a multi-dimensional experience that ebbs and flows with the energy of our empowerment, intention and purpose. Our ordained path is a personal endeavor. It is carved by our discovery, willingness and transformation. Our destiny is a manifestation of the vision of our soul, the passion of our heart and the insight of our mind. It is not the destination we are living towards that defines our fulfillment. Our personal revelations are the stepping stones that create the course of our existence. Who we choose to be in the present transforms our everyday reality into a lifetime of eternity.

“Eternity is our soul’s expression.”

Rise and Shine

“Fear is what happens to us when we deny our love.”

Social Distortion:

Humanity is afflicted with an inexorable disease.  It is a widespread epidemic that compromises our authenticity, ethics, integrity and sensibilities.  One of which we as a global culture have been suffering from since the dawn of our existence.  Its roots originate in our chaotic, obscure and unconscious lifestyle.  This social virus is an emotional instability, a mental phobia and inevitably becomes a physical disease.  All of us are infected.  No matter how we attempt to avoid, distract or escape ourselves, it is always there.  It thrives on our personal apathy, attachment, conflict, denial and dependence.  We are prisoners of our own fear.

Broken Foundation:

The decline of our society has accelerated. No matter what our belief, education, perception, politics or understanding, it is undeniable.  Humanity is in a perpetual state of fear.  Most of us are not aware of its full measure and impact.  We have been socially conditioned into a custom of dis-ease, disillusionment, distrust and indifference.  Cultural confusion influences all avenues of our daily experience.  From our early exposure to authority, education and religion, to the contemporary exploitation of the media, our peers and society, we are constantly overwhelmed by a blitz of aggravated anxiety.  Our fear is like water to the fish.

Feigned Obscurity:

Reality, as presented and perceived, has been distorted and manipulated to the nth degree. Its dynamics have been strategically altered beyond common understanding.  Those who pull the strings of the global puppet show make sure the design is complicated enough to prevent the majority from transforming it.  It is the energy of our own fear that sustains the reality in which we are confined.  We are not taught nor do we choose to learn ways to transcend this social prison.  Therefore, we sequester ourselves within the boundaries of our personal fear.  Reality is an artificial security that prohibits the fulfillment of our possibility.

Tapestry of Terror:

Terror sells, perhaps even more than fear or sex. It is a controversial terminology wielded by adolescent adults for the purposes of agenda, control and profit.  The impact of its implication provokes anxiety, hate, ignorance and oppression.  It is a contrived power that has altered history, law, perception and understanding.  Those who define it are often the guiltiest of practicing it.  It is a commercial, corporate, financial and political exercise to exploit the fear of nations for the manipulation of the global marketplace.  The true purpose of contemporary terror is to bewilder, distress, enrage and terrify humanity.

“The easier it is to look away, the harder it is to live with ourselves.”

The Bliss of Oblivion:

We have made it our inalienable right to be consciously unconscious. Selective reality is our common misperception.  We desensitize and acclimate ourselves to the horrors of inequality, injustice, prejudice and violence.  Social chaos, deception, destruction and trepidation have chased us into our proverbial rabbit holes.  We defend and hide ourselves from the mere threat of danger.  We settle for mere survival in the shadow of life.  Our motivation is socially distorted from fulfillment, purpose and service to amusement, escape and possession.  We savor the bliss of our self-conditioned oblivion, tethered to the vicious cycle of a virtual reality.

Imaginary Life:

We are all in a waking slumber. The monotony of society’s arduous routine has pulled reality over our eyes.  Our sedation is sustained by the multiplicity of our amusement, distraction, entitlement, obligation and responsibility.  We are culled into pedestrian roles as slaves to a complex matrix of indoctrinated education, elementary entertainment, divisive politics and idealistic religion.  Our attachment, consumerism, fear and obedience enable a ravenous social system of competition, exploitation, manipulation and obsolescence.  Everyday we voluntarily justify our part in defending and enabling an imaginary life at the cost of our freedom.

The Spark:

It happens to all of us in our own unique way. Our perception and experience shifts from our immersion in to our transcendence from social reality.  We see the illusion for what it is and become acquainted with our personal vision.  The quickening of our empowerment and enlightenment propels us into the embrace of the extraordinary.  Linear perception transforms into multi-dimensional experience.  We are thrust into expansive, new streams of consciousness.  All we have encountered and understood in our past and present is superseded by the illumination and inspiration of all possibility and purpose.  We are awakened.

Soul Signature:

Each of us has a personal power that extends beyond our experience, imagination, perception and understanding. Whether or not we are aware of this, it exists.  Our body may be a biological marvel and our mind a neurological phenomenon.  Yet, our heart is an electromagnetic force of multi-dimensionality symbiotic with our intuition and connected with our soul.  It is in our creativity that our spirit is able to manifest through our heart, mind and body.  Every person has the ability to be an expression of the universe.  Our unique vision is a vital element in the fulfillment of our purpose and the collective destiny of humanity.

“Only when we live our vision will we become our soul purpose.”

Keeping the Vision:

No matter how powerful our experience of awakening may be, seeing and knowing it is only the beginning. Enlightenment is established with our commitment to exercise a conscious lifestyle whenever an opportunity is presented.  The personal vision we receive is manifested with our creativity, devotion and intention.  In order for us to truly become this we must live it everyday, especially in the midst of great adversity.  Our vision is all that is real.  Having a vision is the birth of our possibility.  Living it transforms us and the reality in which we exist.  This is the true expression of human being.

In the Field:

The fate of the future depends on us all. There is no escape from this essential, universal truth.  The greater our resistance in claiming and embracing our personal destiny, the more grave the impact it will have on the fate of all living beings.  We are not spectators in the arena of life.  We are participants in an extraordinary experience that transcends our fear, perception and reality.  The expression of our personal engagement is the embodiment of our soul purpose.  Our commitment to the fulfillment of our life is our only true destiny.  Our personal power is realized when we choose to envision, embrace and walk our path.

Rise and Shine:

The only moment in which we will ever make a difference is now. Each of us has a dream that can become vision, intention, expression and purpose.  There is one true destiny for which we are all empowered into being.  It simply requires us to break through the boundaries of the fear we have enabled with our own anger, apathy, denial, hate and indifference.  The more we live an experience that inspires us; the more it becomes our lifestyle.  Transforming reality is not moving mountains or altering the course of the future.  It is our birthright as multi-dimensional beings.  It is our nature.  We must rise to the opportunity of our life and shine.

“The only life worth living is our own.”
