The New Era

“Awareness begins with the choice to be conscious.”

In the Shift:

As mentioned before in previous articles, we are in an extraordinary, universal energetic shift.  There has never been one more essential or significant.  Since before the Winter Solstice 2020, ascension, awareness, empowerment, inspiration, transformation and transcendence are available in remarkable abundance.  All it requires is for us to be present to our instincts, intellect, emotions, intuition, soul and the universe.  This is a choice we must make.  Before, it may have appeared optional.  Now, it is vital to fully experience our lives.  We can acquiesce and engage in the seductive influence of social reality and its material splendor, or we can awaken from and break the spell we all have been under to acknowledge, embrace, express and manifest our experience.

Sleepless Slumber:

Our life is a dream.  Nothing more, nothing less.  In fact, many of us have never awoken.  We stumble in the darkness of society reacting to circumstances and situations with the dire hope we break ahead.  This is the fundamental dynamic of reality.  Living from external motivations of lack, want and survival.  Our peripheral lives are rooted in a linear perception, constantly seeking self-value in the people around us.  When we fail to find our worth from others, we encounter instinctual, intellectual and emotional breakdowns, instantaneously severing our relativity with our heart, intuition, soul and the universe.  We engage in social reality, perceiving it as the path of least resistance.  Yet, it diminishes our potential to create, establish, express, manifest and sustain our personal truth.

Hook, Line and Sinker:

There are many devices of social entrapment.  Religion separates us from our soul.  Politics divide and disempower.  Advertisements program us to consume.  Entertainment lulls us into escapism and fantasy.  Sporting events spark us into a competitive fever pitch of triumph and tragedy.  All forms of media pander fear to condition our perception of the world.  The medical industry promotes illness and dependance on chemicals and continual care.  Laws are established by white collar criminals to protect their illegal activities, sentencing society to its own apathy, confusion, ignorance and oblivion.  While authoritarian regimes reign with a ruthless, global military state, wherein the people are manipulated to police each other.  All these social influences serve to imprison us in our mind and body.    

Breaking the Chains:

Extracting ourselves from social reality can be an excruciating and terrifying experience.  There are many ways to free ourselves from all that arises to steal our consciousness.  Our focus, attention, awareness, energy and expression are vital to transforming our experience.  Whatever ritual we choose, what is most important is our alignment, equilibrium and relativity with the universe.  We must create, empower, inspire and sustain our unique purpose, while being aware of the billions of social influences we may encounter.  We are the weakest link in the chain of artificial society.  Meaning, only we can break the bonds of our engagement.  Simply shifting our attention from the peripheral with our inner observation and intention breaks the chains of our social incarceration.

“An eon of enslavement has ended; an era of empowerment has begun.”

The Rise of Universality:

We are a soul having a human experience.  Yet, we have been deceived into believing we are a human being having a spiritual encounter.  The focus of our common existence has been distorted and manipulated, tethering us to our instincts and intellect.  We are all multidimensional beings of energy expressing ourselves with our intuition, heart, mind and body.  Balancing the domains of our being to align with our soul is our universality, our relativity with the universe.  Though it has been available to us from birth, it is most accessible and present than ever before.  Universality is an eternal and infinite force, the source of all creativity, empowerment, imagination, inspiration, transformation and transcendence.  Humanity stands upon the threshold.  All we need do is walk through the door.

Rite of Passage:

Initiation is the cornerstone of all organizations, be they charitable, collegiate, corporate, political, religious or spiritual.  It is an introduction to an ideology, with the intention of enriching our lifestyle.  However, this too has been strategically highjacked to impose indoctrination into singular methodologies of organized propaganda.  Each of us must acknowledge and navigate our personal rite of passage to align with the universe and become its expression within social reality.  There are over seven billion unique rituals of experience existing around the world.  When we discover one we are inspired to walk, an extraordinary exchange of energy resonates through our intuition, heart, mind and body.  This equilibrium in our being is an affirmation we are in alignment with our soul and the universe.

The Grand Progression:

All who have chosen their unique path are in an accelerated evolution of conscious being.  Possibility and potentiality are always present.  Instant creation, expression and manifestation is happening all around us.  This, in and of itself, can spin us off our center.  We are all entering a powerful, transformative era of experiential existence.  From Winter Solstice 2021 to Spring Equinox 2022, the influence of social reality will intensify to prevent the Grand Progression of our energetic consciousness.  All who are engaged and invested in social reality will seek to control, distort, manipulate and obstruct humanity from achieving its collective destiny.  Yet, it is not the authoritarian forces who are holding us hostage.  It is our own apathy, control, fear and insecurity. 

Focus, Ground, Center and Balance:

Social environments activate our anxiety, chaos, escapism and pain.  We are victims of our circumstances, conditioning and programming.  Our acquiescence to social reality is our greatest self-oppression.  Being swept away by its tumultuous tides is an epidemic of global proportion.  We are constantly in an energetic hurricane, necessitating us to ground ourselves and step into its eye.  Our freedom is found within.  Our energy goes where our attention flows.  Amidst the melee, we must identify and establish our being by focusing our conscious intent.  Tuning the resonance of our energy empowers us to center ourselves as we navigate the perils of social reality.  Our equilibrium is the alchemy of our being. Establishing our balance with the universe in the present empowers our own. 

Creative Relativity:

What we think we know is immaterial.  What we believe we understand is even more irrelevant.  Our arrogance, entitlement, expectation and self-righteousness are what inhibits the evolution of our being.  The more we cling to the known aspects of our existence, the more we sacrifice our opportunity to shift with universal energy.  Relativity as familiarity confines us into a paradigm of antiquated obsolescence.  Relativity with the flow of creativity aligns us with the universe.  Who we are being in the present is our essential experience.  Our balanced being is a lightning rod carrying the resonance of the Grand Progression.  As we attune to this energy, we manifest its shift into social reality.  Releasing all we have established as our identity empowers our universality.

The New Era:

Beyond the threshold of all we know, abides all we feel, intuit and experience.  Instinct, intellect and reactive emotion has no bearing in the universe.  Therefore, it is nearly impossible to align with it while existing in a three-dimensional construct with a two-dimensional understanding.  We cannot experience universality through the lens of social reality.  This causes a paradox which annihilates our fulfillment.  We must be committed and willing to let go of everything around us, even ourselves, to embrace transcendence of being.  We are all creators of our experience.  We all have the personal power to align, focus, ground, center and balance our being.  We need only open our vision, set our intention, create our purpose, flow with the Grand Progression and be an expression of the universe.

Universal Flow:

All of us have a unique purpose only we can express.  It is our covenant with life.  When we commit to our destiny, it synergizes our relativity with the universe.  Given the status of society, it is evident we are not fulfilling our vow.  Universality is present whenever we are in alignment within ourselves.  This empowers us to express it into our social environment.  It inspires us to accelerate and elevate our energy.  Though we exist in a chaotic and destructive, virtual reality, universal energy is always present in every moment.  Our stream of consciousness is sourced from our soul, through our intuition and into our heart, mind and body.  It is a multidimensional experience empowering every element of our being.  Universality is the energy of the new era.  We are the instruments of its music.

 “Being is the new era of enlightenment.”

“Spiritualized” The Ego of Spirituality

“Ego is the destroyer of the soul.”

Dysfunction Junction:

We all have personal agendas, conflicts, crises, egos, faults and strategies.  We all have afflictions and conditions which impair our perceptions, senses, instincts, thoughts and feelings.  This is the daily reality we all accept, adopt and navigate in our experiences.  Some of us nurture practices to keep ourselves balanced, conscious, present and transformed, while some of us front oblivion to deny, dismiss, deflect and project our inner challenges and deficiencies upon others.  This happens in all communities.  The ego transmits a dense, low-vibrational energy not only impacting the people engaging in deception, yet also the spiritual community with which they pray and relate. 

Observational Hazards:

For half of my life, I have participated in spiritual communities.  I learned and earned a degree of focus, consciousness, effort, energy, intention and prayer to manage my own ego, agendas, challenges, deficiencies, instincts, thoughts and feelings detrimental to my experience.  It is clear to all whom have chosen to walk a spiritual path, there is a necessity to practice observation, awareness, accountability, integrity and transformation.  For me, it is a commitment of holding a space for all to have their experience, and the choice to make a positive difference in the lives of all their relations.  Unfortunately for some, the “ego of spirituality” establishes a schism between perception and experience. 

Best of Intentions:

When our experience begins, we are mystified by the energy and power of spirituality.  As human beings, we are prone to heap our belief, hope, energy and lives onto the mystery.  It seems much easier to fully sacrifice ourselves upon the altar of blind faith, than delve into the rotten soil of our personal challenges and deficiencies which brought us to it.  As our awareness of our soul and the universe evolves, our ego grows in tandem.  Most of us decide to abandon observation of our ego, giving it as much power over us than whatever spiritual relation we believe we are cultivating.  We instinctively collapse the voice we interpret as spirit with our ego.  We listen more to this inner voice than the universe because it tells us what we “want” to hear, never what we “need” to hear. 

Identity of Importance:

When the ego takes root in our experience, a desire to be acknowledged and significant arises.  As we deepen our spirituality, inevitably we crave importance.  Our personal experiences often require the validation of others to exhibit them as being more meaningful and powerful.  This is “artificial power,” which negates whatever sincere effort and energy we are investing.  It is contrary to our evolution when we fall into virtual spirituality.  All the focus, intention, energy, adversity, challenge and pain our experience may bring, offered intentionally and obliviously to our ego in pursuit of false power and importance.  Therefore, our spirituality fails.  However, it is not the tradition we practice which falters.  It is our spiritual superiority which empowers our ego. 

“Vulnerability is the greatest strength we can express.”

Trail of Tears:

All of us have personal woundedness.  We have been hurt by circumstances and others, yet primarily by ourselves.  Our suffering is self-inflicted, whether we choose to believe, observe or claim it.  We conceal and covet our pain and insecurity because we believe our ego when it tells us it is weakness.  We repress our deficiencies in desperation and present a “brave face” to our community, while we break down with every spiritual step we take.  As we stumble down our path, our anger, anxiety, doubt and fear rise to be released from our experience.  When this occurs, we have three options.  1. We continue to deny and repress its existence.  2. We project it upon others as their responsibility, thus deflecting our own.  3. We choose to be with and manage our own issues and eventually resolve them. 

Self Alone:

Spirituality is not about “our” experience.  This is a selfish fantasy we devise to appease our ego and sustain our artificial power, ultimately limiting our conscious evolution.  The cornerstone of our commitment to the traditions we walk is our service to the people in our communities and beyond.  Occasionally, I have observed people step into spiritual experiences for the sole purpose of receiving something for themselves alone.  This has been and is heartbreaking for me to witness, all their potential for making a difference, wagered for control, ego and importance.  The most disturbing reality in this dynamic; most have little awareness of the impacts it has on them, and none it has on others.      

Power Play:

Many who step into a spiritual experience often have deficiencies or lack personal power.  When they see others who are developing and expressing their own, they too yearn to establish theirs.  Yet, their ego emphasizes their neglected anger, anxiety, fear, insecurity, pain and woundedness.  Out of their desire, desperation, entitlement and self-righteousness, they aim to steal power from others to fabricate their own.  They use other people’s reactions to their behavior to distort and manipulate experience and perception.  When they are exposed, they present themselves as victims of the circumstance they have caused, using their drama, trauma and tears as a weapon to divert the attention from themselves onto others to achieve their agenda.   

Divisive Intentions:

One of the primary expressions of “artificial power” in spiritual communities happens when the “spiritualized” attempt to divide and conquer.  They invent narratives about others, most often leaders, to distort and manipulate perception, compromising the image, role and trust leaders have earned with their communities.  Once the seeds of speculation are planted, the provocateurs enroll others in their orchestrated plots, gathering numbers and imposing their agendas.  They initiate division between members of the community to efficiently control information and outcomes.  Essentially, it is a hostile takeover predicated by their belief they are better than the people who are given roles of responsibility.   

Spiritualized”:

For years, I have attempted to identify the behaviors of people who use spirituality as a strategy to bolster their ego, execute their agenda and obtain power.  The term that best classifies this behavior is “spiritualized.”  By definition, “someone who perceives themselves to be spiritually superior to others, using ageism, experience, history and self-righteousness to prove and impose their spiritual status and worth.”  Being “spiritualized” is a social psychosis and metaphysical stigma running rampant throughout most if not all domains of spirituality.  Yet it is not only the actions, words or behaviors of “spiritualized” individuals, it is the malicious intent in the name of spirituality which invokes the greatest harm, influence and devastation.

For the Benefit of All:

Some may be offended when reading this article.  Some may believe what is written does not apply to them.  Whether my observations about the ego of spirituality empowers, inspires, enrages, irritates or simply does not move the needle of recognition is telling.  Whatever reaction we choose in response to these observations is a clarification of our willingness to acknowledge and accept we ALL have egos.  Like it or not, its influence DOES impact our spiritual experience and those of others.  Understanding this gives us all the opportunity to shift our focus and energy away from our ego and align with our soul.  If we are going to give all of ourselves for our spiritual experience, it needs to be for the benefit of all.   

Believer Beware:

Practicing tradition is a powerful experience.  It is a humbling opportunity often mistaken as an attainment of individual advancement.  When we charge into our spirituality with agenda, ego, entitlement and expectation, it will become destructive to us and others in ways we cannot begin to imagine.  However, when we step into our experience with consciousness, humility and prayer, it empowers our lives and those of others.  “Spiritualized” people do not like to be told what to do, and often tend to alter traditions, feign understanding or even make them up to suit their agenda.  After all my experiences, one insight I would share with those at the crossroads of their soul; be present to your ego and its influence, or you will never have a spiritual experience.                   

“Unity is the soul of community.”

An Ear to Hear

“The greatest expression of presence is listening.”

On Deaf Ears:

We listen primarily to articulate our response.  This is essential to acknowledge.  Our social conditioning does not inspire an awareness for quality relativity.  Our impatience and intolerance are reflective of the dysfunctional personas we conceal from others in our quest to present an image of sanity in a sociopathic society.  The expanding vortex of contemporary reality consumes our consciousness, creativity, evolution, imagination and sensibility, rendering us unable to empower and sustain our listening.  When we are not present to this, our ego takes advantage of our imbalanced being.  Ignorance is bliss, until we pay the price for our selective interpretation and self-righteousness with personal and social oblivion.

Reality-Colored Vision:

Our perspective is inundated with perceptual filters.  We see the world as it seems, rarely as it is.  Throughout the course of our life experiences, we adopt, adapt, embrace and express inherent personal and social, static lenses, hindering our enlightenment.  Over time, we enable our selective viewpoints, casting ourselves into a narrow awareness of experience.  Eventually, we impose our limited perceptions upon others to defend our self-induced coma of anxiety, fear, insecurity and prejudice.  These personal rackets award us the arrogance to claim artificial power and flex it whenever our fixed perspectives are challenged.  This compounds the illusions we weave, eventually becoming our reality.

Barely Audible:

Our relatedness is distorted and manipulated as much as our reality.  We cannot relate when our language is as lethargic as our listening.  The fullest potential of conscious listening is the equilibrium between our instincts, intellect, feelings and intuition.  However, social reality is rife with toxic impulses, thoughts and emotions.  These have become the avenues of our agendas, at the cost of our hearts and souls.  We are desensitized to how we sacrifice our experience, building our bank accounts, establishing our status and bolstering our egos.  Superficiality destroys the possibility of transforming our social conversations from individual greed to community need.  Every day we disempower ourselves deeper into denial.

The Fragility of Consciousness:

Our instinctual, intellectual and emotional reactivity overpowers our awareness.  We allow other people, social circumstances and environments to compromise our consciousness before it has the opportunity to evolve.  Whether the fate of our transcendence is accidental or intentional, it all begins with the quality of our listening.  If we were aware of the insight, transformation and wisdom available when we and those we speak with felt heard, we would chase after experiences to cultivate conscious listening.  The frailty of our listening reflects the fragility of our consciousness.  All we may become is sacrificed for all we may control.  As we abandon our awareness, we diminish our ability to hear and be heard.

“Listening is the currency of being.”

Acute Observation:

When we choose to see how communication and listening does or does not exist in contemporary society, we need only turn to the internet, radio and television.  Understanding 90% of what we observe in the media is corporate, political and religious editorial gives us insight into how we can choose to draw vital distinctions.  Personal truth will never be found in the annals of education, heredity, politics, religion and alternative, mainstream and social media.  No matter how true broadcasts may seem when pandered to our platform and position, they are dangerous transmissions resulting in historically catastrophic outcomes.  Keen observation is the primary practice in distinguishing distorted facts from intuitive vision.

Distant Avenues:

We are not related.  We believe we are.  Yet, vast distances exist between us through social concoctions of fear, insecurity, selective interpretation, and deficiencies in acceptance, authenticity, empathy, trust and understanding.  We consciously and obliviously sustain societal separation.  All of this is simply a facet of our personal isolation.  The deepest impact is the well being of our relationship with ourselves and ultimately our soul.  We have an active connection with our instinct and intellect, though our relatedness with our heart and intuition is abandoned by our conditioned addiction to sense reality.  When we are not related with others or even ourselves, we are not aligned with our soul and the universe.    

Heart Resonance:

As we listen with our egos, we miss so much of what exists for others, and what occurs for us in theirs.  We rarely, if ever, venture outside of our own experience of listening.  Our narcissistic tendencies narrow our frequency of being, much as our mind can diminish our perception.  Every conversation we have has potential for multidimensionality.  The gateway to universal relativity is acceptance, empathy, support and understanding.  In expressing this, we also benefit from the experience.  We all emanate an energetic signature.  When we maintain the equilibrium of our instinct, intellect, emotion and intuition, the resonance between us expands, expressing universality.

Universal Relativity:

Our being is multidimensional.  All which cannot be perceived by most is easily dismissed into non-existence.  Hence the oblivion we all inevitably adopt.  Understanding we are a soul with intuitive, emotional, intellectual and instinctual expressions helps us to embrace the necessity of our personal equilibrium.  Without it, we will never fulfill relativity with the universe, ourselves or others.  We may believe we have decent relations with our family and friends, yet beyond the social bubbles we tolerate, we do not experience ourselves.  Therefore, we do not relate with our soul and the universe.  Universal relativity transpires when we chose to express authentic listening as our primary intention with all our relations.

Between the Lines:

I am a musical artist in addition to an author of articles.  My creative process is an experiential, multidimensional environment, a sacred space the universe holds for me as a representative for all possibility in being my expression.  The moment I intend to bring universality into three-dimensional reality, the eternal and infinite energy of the universe is inevitably diminished from its ever-expansive nature to a singular, static medium.  Society’s perceptual tendency toward duality furthers the waning impression of creativity.  For me, it is not the musical notes or words I choose.  It is the universal energy inspiring them to empower their expression.         

Relations of Power:

There is a vital distinction to be made when listening.  For many, expressing it is an act of tolerance, “allowing” another to speak, all the while collecting notes to curry our response.  Authentic listening gives people with whom we relate the experience of being heard, empowering their relatedness with acknowledgment, appreciation and acceptance.  We may not agree with the viewpoints of others, though it does not mean we need to devalue, diminish and dismiss their voice when it is in contrast with ours.  Being heard is a power we can share with all.  When we give others our listening with the empowerment of being heard, we are extending equal courtesy to ourselves, thus becoming an expression of universal relativity. 

“Listening is offering others the experience of being heard.”

The Greatest Conspiracy

“Social reality is the exploitation of life.”

Anatomy of Realism:

I am not a conspiracy theorist, at least I do not consider myself one.  Though I find it interesting how the common theorem behind its existence is scientific and critically psychological in contemporary society.  Decades ago, the term “conspiracy theory” was concocted by the very authoritarian organizations attempting to pull the wool over the eyes of the world for the sake of maintaining advantage, control, power and profit.  Be they in the domains of banking, business, defense, entertainment, government, finance, media, politics or religion.  Those who choose not to acknowledge relativity between these social control structures and current controversial events are simply not paying attention or are afraid and unwilling to accept the truth.

Selective Reality:

Unbeknownst to us, the institutions of parental guidance, education, media, peers, politics, religion and society program us from infancy to adopt, believe, engage, promote and execute a sinister global agenda.  Suppressing, discrediting and abolishing our creativity, consciousness, evolution, imagination, power, transcendence and transformation.  We are desensitized by our contribution to this devious, hostile and vicious social stratagem.  Our condemnation, defamation, fear, hate, judgement, prejudice and shaming of others with alternate viewpoints has intensified in the last few years.  It is the artificial power we flex at the world when our selective reality is compromised.

Lords of Illusion:

For centuries, governments have distorted, withheld and revised historical events under the guise of “national security” in the “best interest of the people.”  Again, this should not come as a surprise to anyone, dependent on how one chooses to perceive the daily onslaught of propaganda and rhetoric we all receive from mainstream and social media.  The potential for truth wanes when most are eagerly willing to sacrifice their exceptionality and personal power under the gravity of peer pressure and ridicule when expressing indifference with the “official narratives.”  Yet, these structures of control persist as we enable, engage and sustain it with our blind and obedient loyalty to social slavery glorified as freedom.

Web of Deception:

Wealthy global families use Centralized Banks, who in turn use International Banks, who use National Banks (see a theme?), who operate in the global marketplace as Corporate Banks funding Global Corporations to invest in lobbyists, to buy politicians, to introduce laws and protect their enterprises, futures and profits.  They use the armed and special forces to protect themselves from the people.  The caveat for these families is the necessity for the people they are attempting to enslave to adopt and invest in this global pyramid scheme for its optimal success.  What purpose does it serve to know all of this?  The rate of our social consumption enables this system to benefit the few at the cost of the many.

“Just because we do not believe in something, does not mean it does not exist.”

Mind Games:

How we interpret events and people is inherently biased.  The many filters we adopt and enable make it impossible to see things as they truly are.  Our individual realities are predominately instinctual and intellectual.  This is the design of society.  We receive and process information with our instincts and thoughts, establishing our perception and understanding with a fraction of our being.  This is how we surrender our personal power.  In the process, we suppress our feeling and insight, thus distorting and weakening the alignment of our intuition with our soul and the universe.  We become so invested in social reality, we defend and promote it more than we empower and manifest our soul’s unique purpose and destiny. 

The Psychosis of Debunking:

Discrediting alternative viewpoints has become an artform for many. Millions go online to debunk just about anything with a surplus of “sources” to defend their beliefs and perspectives.  Yet, this practice is not an expression of our instinctual and intellectual prowess.  It is more an imposition of our rampant egos and our voracious appetites for self-righteousness.  Given most of us have harsh opinions of ourselves, it feeds the socially charged, instinctual, intellectual and emotional vicious cycles to which we subscribe.  The profound reasoning for our quest to disprove truth is really our fears and insecurities emerging when our adopted lifestyle and perception is challenged.  For most of us, our egos dominate our being in our desire to feign artificial power.

Revisionist Perception:

We see only what we want, rarely what we need.  Our internal and environmental dynamics are riddled with acquiescence, cowardice, doubt and fear.  We are not born this way.  We are conditioned to emulate society’s impression and influence.  Our capacity for consciousness diminishes while we mature into adulthood.  As we are assimilated, our personal power is syphoned from us through our reactivity to social events.  The greatest hurdles in the “human race” are our anxiety, denial, resistance, self-righteousness and skepticism.  We believe only what we think is best for us, all while abandoning our personal power at every opportunity.  We adapt our perception to appease our fear.

Bursting the Bubble:

Social reality segregates us into limited domains of existence.  Our family, friends and colleagues occasionally occupy this obligatory relation we maintain. Yet even this relativity engenders exclusivity.  Beyond this familial bubble we build with our actions, decisions and fears, we have little to no awareness, connection, empathy or understanding.  We honestly do not care about the world outside of our self-induced borders.  We say we do, and at times we are inclined to become instinctually, intellectually or emotionally triggered into engagement, though our moments of epiphany and empathy pass.  Authentic relatedness is not about personal advantage, comfort, convenience or tolerance.  It is an opportunity to emerge from history to discover and embrace mystery.

The Art of Listening:

Recently, I participated in The New Agora’s “The New Now” online round table, moderated by Lorenzo Malowane, discussing men’s roles in contemporary times.  One of the many insights I experienced from the conversation is the foundation of possibility listening provides.  There was an energetic flow as everyone expressed their perspective and vision.  This is one of many key insights absent in society.  I have observed in either fluent or intense environments, once I offer listening without agenda, attachment and control, it instantly shifts the dynamic.  There are occasions to speak, yet many more opportunities to listen.  This vital practice empowers our transcendence beyond the duality of right and wrong, transforming our experience.

The Greatest Conspiracy:

The truth about conspiracy is we secretly believe because we feel the resonance of truth, we simply fear the social impact, ridicule and scrutiny.  We are a conspiracy theory of ourselves, chasing artificial power by focusing our attention on the peripheral and overlooking the true reality.  Our life, in relation to who we truly are, is a living delusion.  It is the con we run on ourselves.  We project a deceptive image to sustain our greatest conspiracy.  We are a lie we tell ourselves and others to escape our truth.  Every time we feel motivated to expose someone or something because it challenges the illusion we have designed to defend our belief, ego and fear, we should begin by observing ourselves as the only conspiracy theory worth debunking.

“In every conspiracy there is a seed of truth.”

Who Is Iam Saums?

“I am no one, and I am everyone…”

Originality:

My given name is William Howard Post.  That’s what the birth certificate says.  I was named after my Paternal and Maternal Grandfathers William Post and Howard Saums.  When I first began studying in The Fourth Way School, my fellow students began calling me Iam, which is the last 3 letters of my first name.  I would later discover the name Iam has Celtic origins, in relation with my Paternal and Maternal Grandmother’s lineages, Francis O’Day and Ruth O’Laverty.  In honor of my Grandfather Howard Saums, an inspirational and remarkable man to many in his community, “Iam Saums” is the name I chose to publish articles.

The Spark:

More than a decade ago, I began to observe the covert, intricate and influential nuances occurring in global society, primarily in the banking, corporate, medical, political and religious arenas.  I became present to an elusive network of secret, authoritarian organizations imposing an agenda to control the nations of the world, which angered, frustrated and eventually empowered me to capture my personal insights and observations via writing.  I would send them to select friends who I felt may be open to reading them.  One of them was author Elva Thompson.  Her experienced observations, passion and understanding inspired me to clarify, focus and express my own.  Elva’s encouragement and her intent to make a difference in this world helped to empower the genesis of Iam Saums.

Source Archives:

Every day I meditate twice, once in the morning and again in the afternoon.  I have been meditating for over 20 years in the Jain Tradition, the same Mahatma Gandhi embraced.  I have also participated in Lakota Ceremony for almost 20 years.  Over the last 2 decades I have experienced how these practices have empowered my awareness, creativity, intuition and transformation. This balance creates a foundation of focus, centering and grounding of my being to become an expression of the universe.  I chose this opportunity through creativity to manifest this energy and transform myself and my experience.  The content I am inspired to write and the energy beyond the words is greatly sourced by the universe.  

Creative Dynamics:

We are all multidimensional beings composed of a body, mind, heart, intuition and soul.  Yet, humanity primarily exists in the duality of instinct and intellect.  This is how social reality is designed and imposed, thus preventing us from relating with our heart, soul and the universe.  Our collective universality was fractured and lost ages ago during a great energetic schism.  Identifying, establishing and sustaining our balance with the multi-dimensionalilty of our being inspires us to relate with our soul and be a creative expression of the universe.  For each of us, it is both unique and vital.  Not only for our destiny, yet also for how we make the greatest difference by empowering each other with who we are being.

“I am a declaration of being.”

Vision and Observation:

Everything in this world is created from energy, insight, intention and expression.  In this new era, we have an extraordinary opportunity to become balanced, present, related and aligned with the universe.  Our focus on creativity, consciousness, experience and transformation nurtures the possibility and manifestation of our purpose, beginning with our vision and observation.  We are conditioned to be solely invested in our individual lives, unable to transcend the rampant duality of social reality.  Inevitably, we succumb to its tides and give our power away to anyone and anything willing to take it from us.  It is in this vicious cycle we sacrifice our lives to chase the dangling carrot constantly luring us toward the proverbial cliff of ordinary existence.

In Transition:

Now more than ever, we are shifting progressively into the embrace of a powerful, personal and collective destiny, if we choose.  Many are racing to return to the way things were before the world went sideways, oblivious to the universal potentialities available to all.  In the Spring of 2020, I was empowered and inspired by the possibility of a global awakening to shift us into universal being.  Yet recently, I am confronted with the disappointing reality many are choosing to strengthen their familial bubble and the illusion of normalcy in this era of transcendence.  This was and is still heartbreaking for me to this day. Though I choose to focus on universal vision, energy and possibility, I am at times overwhelmed by our forsaken potential for collective ascension.

The Truth of Reality:

Social reality is a weapon used against humanity to control, divide, influence and gain profit and power.  No matter how intelligent or wise we believe ourselves to be, this is the truth of reality.  We can deny, debate, protest and refute all we want, it does not alter the programmed conditioning of society. For decades, I have observed reality as an engineered, authoritarian system to enslave humanity into an illusion of choice, democracy, enterprise and freedom.  Distorting and syphoning our attention, energy and power while using our own fear of personal accountability, authenticity, integrity and vulnerability against us.  Social reality is a vortex of oblivion consuming our awareness, life force and possibility.        

The Reality of Truth:

There are over seven billion truths in the world.  Of course, they all fail to exist in our oppressive and imposing environment.  The reality of truth cannot be established with congregational education, politics, religion or spirituality.  It requires each of us to envision, focus, create, intend, express and manifest our truth with every breath.  Our personal truth cannot live in others, as their individual truth will not exist in ours.  It is a very intimate and private experience we share with the universe.  A sacred covenant and union we consciously choose long before we are born.  It is an incredibly challenging and lonely path to walk.  Yet, the enlightenment, fulfillment and transformation we create and experience is momentous, eternal and infinite.

As It Shall Be:

To be honest, I have no clue who Iam Saums is.  As with the many facets of each of our personalities, one that is fixed is unable to evolve, progress or transform.  I choose to believe my literary endeavors are shared experiences between my personal expression and the universe. At least this is my vision.  Perhaps I am guided by something greater, to be simply a current of energy in the vast ocean of universal consciousness.  Then again, what I am inspired to write has become and is my personal truth.  One that may resonate with others, yet nonetheless, my unique dance with the universe.  Establishing our truth empowers us to listen, express and thrive.  I have never been attached to what I write and how it may be received when published.  Only the possibility the words I am guided to convey may illuminate and inspire our collective experience, so we all become who we are destined to be.

“I am who the universe expresses.”

On a Personal Note

“Why would we want it the way it was, it wasn’t working anyway.”

Social Shakedown:

Beginning in March 2020 the world was shutdown.  Rolling lockdowns, restrictions, social distancing and masks littered society with the promise of protection, blended with heavy doses of fear and propaganda.  Even social perception was compromised; altered and manipulated toward an apparent intention for safety, yet rife with undeniable political and social agendas emerging from the unknown.  Years ago, I learned that whenever global events occur such as the pandemic, there is always more going on under the surface of reality than we choose to see or become informed.  Given the common attention span often struggles to sustain awareness, it always takes time for nefarious things to be revealed, even as they go widely unseen.    

Catch a Breath:

Upon reflection, my daily life did not change much over the last year and a half.  I still went to work, to the store, out of town for events and family visits, gathered with community, played music, wrote articles and stayed in touch with people in my life.  I did appreciate the lack of traffic on the roads and trails, at the shops and even in the streets.  There was a calm and peace in the world that happened overnight.  For those fleeting weeks, society was taking a breath, as was nature.  Something began to break the surface through the back and forth of the medical industry, mainstream media and the political arena.  In the wake of dis-, mis-, lack and no information, I felt a shift happening in the world.  Consciousness was growing within the madness of social reality.     

Stand and Create:

It became apparent to me global transformation was possible, and, to some extent, occurring.  The current events had captivated the collective attention of humanity.  This excited and inspired me.  The era some of us were envisioning, intending and expressing for years was happening.  Personal empowerment came to me as a rush of creativity, energy and imagination.  I started writing music again.  My writing style matured and shifted in a new direction.  My meditations and practices were all engaging, powerful and fulfilling, providing me with a new balance, experience, insight and perception into what is possible.  While much of the world was impacted and influenced by anxiety, fear, illness and uncertainty, I stood my conscious ground.     

Truth and Transmission:

As Spring turned into Summer, the energy in society grew more chaotic, intense and unstable.  The pensive calm and quiet turned into viral surges, gun violence, racial profiling and murder, social uprising and the US’s favorite pastime, politics.  Being aware of social conditioning in all forms, and having found the eye in humanity’s recent hurricane, I found myself remarkably balanced, centered, focused and grounded.  There were times when I observed and even engaged in the melee, yet soon found my breath, stepped out of the fracas and reset my connection with the universe.  This became a vital practice whenever my equilibrium was challenged.  It is in the stillness of the present we clarify and establish our truth.

“There are over seven billion truths in the world, and one gigantic lie.”

Electoral Fire:

The Summer passed and the US Election took center stage with all its pomp and circumstance. The ass and the elephant temporarily replaced the focus from the pandemic, setting the masses ablaze.  Suddenly, the flames of anxiety and fear from the virus shifted into politics. One side touted an arrogant and self-righteous attention monger.  The other side dusted off an aging, yet experienced politician who had a questionable backstory of his own.  I do not choose to engage in the political process simply because it is a racket.  A clever and deceptive system designed to disempower the masses, encouraging a timeless exorcism of the people’s power under the false pretense their choice in the political arena makes a difference. 

Ebb and Flow:

The election passed, apart from the childish tantrums of its loser.  The virus charts and numbers rose and receded like an inconvenient tide.  In many ways we were all separated from each other, though pre-virus comparisons would reveal we always had been.  I pressed onward through the melee of social reality, bearing my personal creativity, empowerment, meditation, prayer and transformation as a guiding light against the mounting, simulated darkness.  All the while enjoying the adventure, discovery and opportunity of my experience in an unparalleled, universal energetic shift.  Yet, for every powerful wave of enlightenment empowering our consciousness, the social undercurrents of anxiety and fear aimed to yank us back into reality.

Two Steps Forward, Three Steps Back:

In my life, I have become accustomed to standing for my belief and truth with willful abandon.  This last year and a half have challenged my acceptance, tolerance and understanding of others in the wake of intensifying social criticism, judgement, opinion and prejudice.  Caught somewhere between self-defense and disbelief, I shook my head and smiled my way through it.  As often as possible, I express an immense empathy for humanity and society.  I choose to believe we all have the potential to observe ourselves from within and transform our way of being to the best of our ability in the spirit of making a difference.  Yet, fear is a social vortex devouring possibility at every turn. 

Jab and Weave:

Through Winter and into Spring, I rode the social waves of ease and malaise.  After a while, the pangs of emergency and urgency of the pandemic began to dull.  The social focus was instinctively turning to the old-world pastimes of amusement, entertainment, politics and sports.  Those beating the drum of anxiety were still thumping away on the nerve strings of society in a last-ditch effort to captivate all with their antiquated spell.  The heated debate between the vaxxed and the unvaxxed expired.  All who took the jab appeared to move on with their lives and all who declined followed suit.  Inevitably, most are eager to forget this last agonizing year and a half, replacing its bitter memory with the pastime of their fancy.

Beyond the Choice:

Now, we move into Summer with earnest hopes to leave it all behind, anxiety, chaos, fear, illness, inequality, isolation, lockdowns, loss, lunacy and uncertainty.  What remains are the ashes and embers of the world before everything went sideways.  An extraordinary, universal energetic shift continues, regardless of the mundane, social regression ebbing in tandem with the flow of our ever-evolving consciousness.  These last 18 months have been an affirmation of the power of our choice to either be taken under by the receding tide of social reality or ride the waves of enlightenment and transcendence into the embrace of our destiny.  Beyond this choice is our opportunity to manifest our universal being.  Seems quite simple to me.

“There is no way back, only forward…”

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.”

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

Interview with Lorenzo Malowane of The New Agora from May 6th, 2021 discussing my new article, An Essential Choice | Iam Saums and its relation to current events.

“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.”
