Era of Awareness

“When mania becomes reality, society is lost.”

Conscious Origins:

In my teens, I became present to an elusive power that seemed to hide in the shadows of civilization.  Ever curious, I felt drawn to pull at the loose threads of social reality to reveal a contrarian authority preventing the evolution of humanity’s awareness, destiny, freedom and personal power.  Something was undeniably off about society.  My ambition to understand outweighed my willingness to live an ordinary life.  During this time, I was introduced to the practice of meditation by one of my high school teachers. My experience and perception of reality exploded like a supernova spreading stellar seeds of creativity, empowerment and inspiration into every facet of my being. 

Social Circus:

What a grand show reality is!  It is a far cry to imagine people enjoying current events.  Viruses, racial and social inequalities and injustices, media-induced debates, extreme weather patterns, continued loss of freedoms and rights, mounting restrictions and accelerating tensions between classes. Soon, the 2020 US Presidential Election will take center ring.  Yet, during one of the most opportune times in humanity’s history for transcendence and transformation, the fervor of political and social polarity roars stronger than ever from the grand stands.  Ego, entitlement and self-righteousness replaces acceptance, consciousness and insight. The agenda must be fulfilled. The show must go on!   

Minority Blues:

I have never felt so confronted and targeted for my diverse thoughts and perspectives regarding current events.  Who I choose to be and expressing my unique perceptions has made me more exposed and uncomfortable in ways I have yet to experience.  The most stunning realization is fielding the greatest of this intolerance, resistance and ridicule from family members and close friends.  The great enigma is most of them are open-minded people.  Now, I am presented with the timeless dilemma of suppressing my personal freedom and passion for sharing my viewpoints to honor the beliefs, perspectives and sensitivities of all who have adopted the daily widespread propaganda.      

Majority Rules:

The ebbs and flows of popular social commentary are destroying alternative ideology, lifestyle and any individual who dares challenge or question the official narrative. Engineered reality offers no mercy and stands relentless against diverse perception.  As always, the imposition of totalitarian opinion pushes its fear-laden agenda against the present uprising of universal consciousness, possibility and love.  Social mania runs rampant through the streets, homes, phones and devices of civilization.  Agreement replaces awareness as the fires of frenzy wreak havoc upon humanity.  Across the great divide of nations, society is breaking under the vanity of its self-righteousness.   

“The greatest gift we give another is the experience of being heard.”

Goodwill Calling:

Regardless of our belief, opinion or perspective, it is all worthless if we deny or refute acceptance, experience, listening and understanding of our fellow human.  We certainly do not have to acquiesce, as we always have the choice to agree to disagree.  Yet, even in that, there is unity.  Consideration, comprehension, decency and empathy are all human essentials in our acknowledgement and tolerance of others.  The value of these practices offer an amity that goes beyond imagination and realization.  Points are not proven by popular accord, rather by the spirit of curiosity, encouragement and sincerity.  Transcending duality empowers us to see not just the extraordinary in others, yet also in ourselves.

Heart of Hearing:

As much as we do not listen to each other, we do not listen to ourselves let alone a spiritual power.  Whether it is our social conditioning, institutional programming or the selfishness of survival, we build social bubbles with our anxiety, fear and insecurity.  We listen just enough to respond as we fend off the chaotic instincts, thoughts and emotions constantly emerging and receding within us.  We tend to hear with our ears, yet rarely with our hearts.  When we authentically listen, this act of being instantly transforms the experience of the speaker as well as the listener.  It elevates the environment in which we exist, creating an extraordinary space for all to have the empowerment of being heard and related. 

Eyewitness:

The impacts and influence of our current social circumstances continue to intensify.  The daily norm most people are either counting on or hoping to return is as unlikely as any of us getting younger.  The very notion of having things be as they were is delusional.  When the question is posed, “how was that working?” the answer is an emphatic, “it wasn’t!”  Things are more transparent than they have ever been. The social obscurity to which we desperately cling to avoid accepting the bitter reality we sponsor is clearing.  If we do not see the social mania we enable, we are simply in denial.  This indifference is what has allowed humanity to become such a cruel, destructive and toxic society.       

Era of Awareness:

From my adolescence until now, I have experienced countless social epiphanies and revelations that have led me to my present observation of society.  I have gone from raging teenage angst, to disturbed adulthood contempt, to inquisitive mature investigation and now distinctive middle age understanding of humanity.  Beyond deception, delusion, fantasy and social reality resides our true expression of awareness we all must empower.  It is a solitary path of creation, exploration, self-discovery and purpose only we can inspire for ourselves.  We are only as aware as we create ourselves to be, with our instinct, thought, emotion and intuition.  Our consciousness is our soul’s destiny.  Everything else is illusion.      

“Knowledge may give us the world, awareness gives us the universe.”

Quantum Destiny

“Truth thrives in the absence of reality.”

Edging God Out:

Humanity is smart.  At least we think we are.  The collective intelligence of society is debatable.  How we measure our perception, understanding and wisdom of the world usually requires a sacrifice of our creativity, consciousness, intuition and soul.  In our constant quest to belong and relate with civilization and social reality, we exchange our possibility for programmed intellect and reactionary instinct.  Anyone at any time can surf the internet to debunk, discredit, dismiss and falsify any article of information being transmitted.  When we do, we tend to pat ourselves on the back and go about our lives rarely considering there may be truth between the lines.  Society is an analytical, judgmental and suspicious machine afraid of its own shadow.

Security Blanket:

Oftentimes we buy into the “official narrative” promoted by corporations, the mainstream media, politicians, religious leaders and other notable figures.  We do so with blind devotion and righteous opinion to conceal and defend our fear and insecurities at the cost of our awareness, evolution and freedom.  We voluntarily tether ourselves to the peripheral world, isolating ourselves from our heart and soul.  Our emotions and intuition are the very elements of our being that provide us with insight, fulfillment, transcendence and transformation.  The institutional conditioning of education, peer pressure, religion, reality and society spurs us toward corruption, desensitization, exploitation and oblivion.

Reality of Duality:

Humanity lives primarily in the mind and body.  Impulse and knowledge are the main components of our common, dualistic reality.  These fundamentals keep us confined in a narrow experience, perception and understanding.  It is easy for authoritarian entities to gain and maintain control and power over the masses, especially when we are more than willing to give our personal power over to them.  We are born, live and die in a three-dimensional bubble perceiving life through two-dimensional lenses.  A universe of possibilities exists beyond the boundaries of our engineered social existence.  In every moment we have an opportunity to shed our linear skin and become multidimensional beings.

World of Words:

Perception is altered and influenced every day in multiple ways to push agendas, establish control, pass laws, manufacture outcomes, gain profits and manage power.  The use of language and its verbalization is the common tool to invent and destroy realities.  Those who know this often exercise the ability to use and abuse it by whatever means necessary to further their objective and strategy.  The words we choose possess a power greater than nature.  We need to acknowledge they are an expression of our mentality and are prone to the persuasion of our bias and ego.  They represent our mind, not our heart and soul.  Words are a way for us to relate with each other, yet there are many other extraordinary ways to connect.

“Silence is the gateway to the universe.”

Beyond the Veil:

Every year my wife and I head west to visit people who have become our family.  We are not blood relatives, yet the extraordinary nature of our relatedness transcends origin.  The place we visit is one steeped in centuries of powerful tradition.  Humility, perseverance, sacrifice and truth are just some of the virtues born there.  It is a long journey, yet one that always yields awareness, insight, modesty and understanding.  There is no anger, criticism, judgement or politics, only acceptance, belonging, humor and prayer.  We do not seek to escape from the mania of contemporary reality and society, we simply intend to experience and relate with something far beyond the personalities we portray to remember who we truly are.

Tryst with Transcendence:

The chaotic and intense busyness of social reality distorts and disrupts our ability to align with the universe.  In time, we focus our engagement on honing our instincts and intellect while neglecting our emotions and intuition.  We sacrifice our heart and soul to conform to and engage in the linear mechanics of society.  Yet through it all, extraordinary and mysterious events occasionally occur to stir us from our self-induced slumber.  Epiphanies, insights, revelations and visions bring clarity, guidance, transcendence and transformation.  We begin to experience ourselves beyond the known parameters of human existence.  A natural shift transpires elevating and expanding our focus, intention and perception.

Era of Empowerment:

If there was ever a greater opportunity to shift our experience, energy and existence, it is now.  Reality and society are as ripe for transformation as they have ever been.  Social consciousness, curiosity, observance and willingness are peaking at great heights.  New and diverse concepts, insights and modalities are being discovered, explored and embraced.  Our current circumstances are encouraging and inspiring us to see beyond the real into the great mystery.  Life as we have known it will never be the same.  This is not a terrnifying moment in history.  It is an amazing era of empowerment to envision, create and express all our imaginations content.  The first step is to leave behind all that tethers and enslaves us to social reality.

Quantum Destiny:

Humanity has bided its time with a plethora of amusement, desire, intellect, instinct and fear.  Every moment of every day we have the choice to step out of the drama in which we engage.  Now is the time to take a breath, or as many as necessary to observe that our circumstances are not our experience and our personalities are not who we are in our heart and soul.  The social hurricanes raging around us are illusions designed to diminish our true selves and divert us from our universal purpose to become an expression of its infinite energy.  Our quantum destiny is to be in the present, focus our intent, ground into the earth, center into our intuition, align with the universe and share our unique creativity with all.

“Transformation is the expression of creation.”

The Time Has Come

“Wake from reality.
Wake from your dream.
Wake from the fear,
that is tearing at the seams
of the world.”

Disturbance in the Force:
Society is inverted and perverted. From its inception, it has always been several degrees south of humane. Whether it is our collective display of animosity, cruelty, inequality or injustice, our social disorders have always endured. The most damning evidence of these imbalances is how we have allowed our entitlement and selfishness to become commonly acceptable standards. Possibility fades when we wager our humanity for the sole pursuit of survival. As difficult as it may be to acknowledge and claim our arrogance and desire is as essential we transform them into humility and generosity.

The Forest for the Trees:
We can no longer evade or escape the social reality built around us to benefit the few at the cost of the many. As tolerable as we have reluctantly chosen to make realism routine, we are now confronted with the severity of our personal evasion to settle for less than our unique destiny. Our indifference, resistance and procrastination have effectively inhibited our awakening, becoming and evolution. It begins by distinguishing ourselves and our experience from the reality occurring around us. Nothing is as it seems. Based on current events, the truth of this statement has never been more evident nor relevant.

Global Currency:
Money does not make the world go round. There is something far more evocative and influential. Fear moves the masses of civilization. Whatever the medium employed to execute the current agendas of business, entertainment, politics and religion, nothing is more precisely efficient than fear. Its most successful expression is terror, in all forms. Especially now. The undercurrents of anxiety, dread and panic are enormous energetic waves crashing upon an acquiescent and vulnerable society. We are all being shellshocked to the core of our being by an instinctual, intellectual, emotional and spiritual assault.

The Pulse of Dis-Ease:
Humanity is ill. The contemporary pandemic reflects the state of our health and welfare. Regardless of the aim, circumstance or status of what is happening, the condition of our immunity is the pulse of how we can navigate through most if not all health and environmental challenges confronting us. The accelerated and elevated nature of toxicity both within and without requires our focus, intention and practice to shift our experience. Our choice to exercise proactive awareness, prevention and wellbeing are essential ways to empower our healing and transformation.

Psychological Warfare:
Intellectual reality is a playground for control, competition and manipulation. All the world is a game for amusement, high stakes and low yields. Society is steeped in two-dimensionality; good and bad, dark and light, left and right, up and down and in and out. No matter how smart we believe we are, when we choose to mentally engage, we are trapped in a paradigm of duality. When we allow ourselves to become distracted by thought, we are easy prey for the corporate, political and religious masters of deception. We are the ones who enable their influence with the focus of our energy. Investing in the illusions of reality takes us away from our truth.

“Every moment is an opportunity to transform our experience.”

The Heart of the Matter:
We all have an electromagnetic sphere of energy emanating from our heart center into our environment. Whether we are conscious of it or not, it empowers our mind and nurtures our body. When we are present to this energetic field, the multiple dimensions of our being align with the universe and the earth in a powerful harmonic frequency. Our intuition relates with our soul and the universe. It is as a bolt of lightning, beaming from the source of life, through our chakra centers to the core of the earth. This energy inspires our creativity, sustains our existence and expresses our universality.

Lightning-streak

Source of the Soul:
Our microcosmic senses inhibit our ability to perceive and experience our macrocosmic being. We are more than the sum of our elements. In any moment we are all and nothing. Being nothing grants us the opportunity to be everything and vice versa. Our soul is the source of our transformation. Universal focus, intent and purpose empowers our experience. The eternal energy of our spirit exists exclusively in the present. We are given infinite opportunities every moment of every day to become an embodiment of our soul. It is our birthright to be an ambassador of the universe.

True Calling:
The power to express our soul is ever present. As our purpose is always offering its originality, our unique destiny thrives in moments of possibility. From time to time we have epiphanies to remind us of our universal legacy. Most often we abandon our personal genius for innate obligations to social reality. Our fear of the unknown prevents us from claiming and becoming our calling. Now more than ever expressing and manifesting our purpose is essential to our present and future. It is no longer an option. Becoming who we are meant to be is a necessity for the benefit of all.

The Quickening:
Reality is in an extreme flux of conception, destruction and manipulation. There is an acceleration of experience, time and space that confounds imagination, perception and understanding. The fundamental dynamics of society have been exploited ad infinitum. Every day, multiple domains of social existence are being written and rewritten at the desire of its authors. Humanity finds itself at the mercy of one of its greatest fears, an unknown fate. An uprising of awareness is building momentum as it empowers a generation of awakened warriors. The only way forward is together. The time we have all been waiting for has come.

The Time Is Here!
Time to let go of our fear.
Time to let go of the past.
Time to let go of our control.
Time to let go of our attachments.
Time to let go of our social submission.
Time to come out of the darkness of our anxiety
and into the light of our truth.

Time for all beings to move forward into the embrace of destiny.
Time to create our present. Time to empower our future.
Time to become all we choose to imagine.
Time to claim our power.
Time to find our voice.
The time is here.
The time is now!

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.”

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.”

A History of Mystery

“Intelligence is ignorance in the wake of the universe.”

Initiation:
Almost thirty years ago I had an experience that would expand my perception, understanding and vision of reality, at least what I believed it to be. I was 18 and home for a weekend visit from college with my Mom and brother. Perhaps it wasn’t the first time I had one of these encounters, yet it was the first time I remembered the experience. Years later I would learn it takes over a half hour to reach REM sleep. I was lying on a hideaway bed in front of a dormant fireplace and had just fallen asleep. What I experienced was not a dream, yet a transition to a different dimension of existence and a diverse state of being.

Rude Awakening:
Instantly, I awoke into an experience very distinct from the ordinary. There was a paralyzing energy rolling through my body from my head to my feet and back again. I could only move my head. In front of me a fire raged in the dormant fireplace. To my right, drumsticks silently beat on a revolutionary period snare. Streaking lights flew around the darkness of the room. There were intricately colorful patterns resembling paisley over everything in the room. I was seeing multiple dimensions existing within the same domain of my vision. The multiplicity of the experience was terrifying. It took an expression of my will power to break free.

AHOM III

Afterglow:
As I laid in bed after my experience, I could feel a current of energy resonating through my body. After many experiences over the years, I would later discover that it was residual energy from my soul’s re-entry through the electromagnetic sphere of the Earth. Eventually it dissipated and the balance of my being returned. I was confronted with the mysteries of the unknown, beyond my comprehension and imagination. I struggled to make intellectual sense of what I would find to be an intuitive journey into the possibilities of existence. The intense impact of the experience would stay with me.

Soul Survey:
Months later, I had another experience. I was staying at my father’s house and I awakened into the frightening familiarity of multi-dimensionality. Once again, I was paralyzed from the neck down by the energy slowing moving like waves through my body. I could sense there was activity to my right. With great effort, I turned my head to see two tall beings illuminated by emerald light communicating clairvoyantly. They seemed to be unaware of my awakened state. They were analyzing and evaluating me. As I observed the environment, I noticed that I was levitating three or four feet above the bed.  Once again, I escaped with the focused intent of my will power.

AHOM IV

A History of Mystery:
I eventually realized these were not dreams, fantasies or nightmares. There was a ritual, routine and purpose which I may never entirely comprehend. Every experience began with my shift into a diverse reality in which I encountered energetic paralysis, synthesis and transference. There are always visuals of beings, energy patterns and streaking lights, yet I had never heard any sounds or other senses except for the residual electromagnetic energy that resonates through my being long after my return to reality. In every incidence the energetic intensity becomes overwhelming until I express the focused intent of my personal power.

“Experience is the expression of consciousness.”

Go with the Flow:
Time and understanding gradually taught me to interact and grow with the experiences. The more I shifted in and out of multi-dimensionality, the more I was able to navigate my explorations into diverse realms of existence. Discovery and transcendence replaced my anxiety and fear as I embraced the inevitability of the experiences in a quest to flow with the currents of universal energy. I realized in those moments I was giving away my personal power with my apprehension and resistance. Just as I was becoming accustomed to the progression of the experiences, everything changed.

AHOM XIII

First Contact:
It had been months since I had an experience when they would become much more challenging. I recall being very tired and falling asleep on my back. Almost instantly I shifted into another dimension. I was in my bedroom, it was dark and I recall the energy waves moving through my body. There was an indigo illumination in this dimension, and I saw what looked like a spirit leaning over me at the foot of the bed. It was pulling my spirit out of my body by my legs. I expressed an inherent resistance to this and the being let go and vanished in the darkness. The legs of my soul returned to my body and my will power shifted me back into reality.

Upon Reflection:
For years I have contemplated this experience as being a soul adjustment or something more sinister. Maybe the being was attempting to assist my soul leaving my body to travel beyond the known realities of existence. Perhaps I will never know the true nature of this experience. The sensation I felt stays with me to this day. Occasionally, I wonder what would have happened had I not shifted into that dimension to thwart the apparent seizure. How often have these experiences occurred in other dimensions outside of my awareness or when I didn’t recall? What was happening to me? Who was I becoming?

AHOM VII

A Conscious Return:
Years later, I shifted into a unique dimension where I was outside. The wind was blowing the leaves of some trees and I heard waves crashing on a beach. It was a warm night. I could feel energy from the top of my head moving down my entire form. I began to phase through several dimensions from the beach to the room in which I slept. With each phase the energy decreased in intensity. I saw the beach becoming more distant and the physical room in which I slept merge with that dimension. Eventually I could only hear the beach and see my bedroom as the phasing energy resonated in me long after I shifted into reality.

Expanse of Experience:
After three decades of experiences, much remains a mystery. The constants are the energetic interactions, dimensional shifting and visual manifestations. Yet their clarity, meaning and understanding elude me. I continue to have these experiences and wonder how often they are occurring beyond my awareness. I have learned to believe they are multi-dimensional opportunities to explore and discover the enigmas of existence. I accept my human cognizance may not be enough to realize this expression of universality. I am left with the experiences that guide me through the expanse of my being to bring consciousness to these experiences.

“Without mystery, life would merely be history.”

AHOM II

Epicenter

“The greatest light comes from the deepest darkness.”

Shadows of Life:
The grand illusion is we are all separate from each other. The greater deception is we are alienated from ourselves. Knowing, expressing and being our self in contemporary society has become a dangerous endeavor. One that is often greeted with conflict, indifference and hostility. We become aware of our dependence on social reality as we awaken. Beyond our senses and perceptions are authentic experiences that transform our lives from routine to remarkable. However challenging it may seem to manifest them, every moment provides an opportunity to transcend the mundane and become all that is possible.

Ties that Bind:
Physical, mental and emotional attachment tethers us to our personal life sentence. Our egos, fears, insecurities and pride enable our immersion in a domain of existence lived by most yet revered by few. Our family and social programming establishes our fixed opinions, stimulated by education, politics and religion. We are condemned to a common fate endured by countless generations. It feels like the weight of the world is upon us because it is how we are conditioned. Our experiences and perceptions are socially designed to distract, intimidate and overwhelm us under the threat our own fear.

Fear

Fifty Shades of Fear:
It is not the initial fright we experience that impacts us most. It is the anxiety and distress that comes before and after. The moment rarely ever paralyzes us. It is our natural tendency to amplify and exaggerate our fear to epic proportions. If we possess the power to intimidate ourselves into antiquated social engagements and responsibilities, then we can apply the same energy to shift our experience and empower our life. It is a simple choice either to allow our fear to dishearten us or our love to inspire us. The quality of our focus, intent and purpose is how we manifest our personal power.

Distortion of Power:
Every human being has the potential to align with an infinite source of universal energy. Whether or not we choose to acknowledge and express it is entirely up to us. Some selfishly use their power to sustain their survival and satisfy insatiable desire. Few graciously express theirs to make a difference in service to others. Most have long abandoned this opportunity because the potential benefits simply do not warrant their focus and effort. Our dormant personal power cultivates the seeds of our apathy, cynicism, denial and resignation. Left unrefined, it becomes envy, judgement, resentment and toxicity.

Epicenter VII

Revelation in Darkness:
Wisdom is not found in the light. Our darkest encounters provide the most powerful opportunities to evolve, progress and transform. It takes an exodus from reality, reason, sense and understanding to reveal insights that exist beyond our contemporary vision. Becoming present to something distinct from what has been and is requires us to release all that no longer serves us, creating a field of possibility within for all that will. Only when we delve into the mysterious unknown of our potential do we unravel the complexities of our selective reality to reveal and embody our true being.

“Light shines brightest in the darkness.”

Filters of Perception:
Our eyes are not our own. Social stimuli conditions our viewpoints to reflect what is seen, not who we are. Our lives are a cascade of constant medium vying for our attention and energy. Whenever something traumatic happens to us, we defensively adopt and/or invent perceptual screens through which we view people and experiences. We instinctively apply so many filters, we no longer see reality and society for what it is, only how we believe it should be. Insights and visions are elusive to us because we are attempting to realize them through a kaleidoscope of illusion.

The Truth about Truth:
What is true is both personal and subjective. It is a singular path offering solitary enrichment, enlightenment and fulfillment. All of which is experienced through our own actions, thoughts, feelings, intuition and universality. No two truths are the same. Social reality will always deceive us into adopting and applying the beliefs and lifestyles of others. Our essence sources, progresses and transforms our unique evolution. Who, how and why we are is a manifestation of our choices and experience. Our creativity is an expression of our truth.  Living our truth is how our soul transforms our reality.

A Brush with Creativity:
Whether we are at cause or effect in our lives, they are an opportunity for creativity. Becoming who we were meant to be is the definitive exhibition of our originality. It is our distinct and vital contribution to our lives and society. Our soul’s purpose is to transform our experience. Whatever medium with which we choose to create, it is our destiny to be a vessel for the universe. Consciousness is the energy of creation. Being creative allows us to emanate our true nature. Awareness is the essence of creativity. When we manifest the universe into reality, we are helping to raise the consciousness of humanity.

Epicenter IX

Universal Essence:
The energy of consciousness is the soul of creation. It is what connects everything in every dimension. Without it, there is little understanding of or relation with our selves, others or the universe. Creative expression, evolution and transformation are the foundations of our being. These elements empower us to fulfill our destiny beyond our imagination. It is not what we bring to the universe that manifests the extraordinary. It is how we allow the universe to guide and inspire us that transforms our experience. When we live and trust in the universe, our being transcends the paradigm of social reality.

In the Center:
Our existence is a creation of our being. It is a synthesis of our actions, thoughts, feelings, insights and essence. Being in the center of our experience is an alignment between the universe and our soul, intuition, heart, mind and body. This synergy evolves and transforms our being. When we become the epicenter of our own alchemy, we are a multi-dimensional expression of energy. Our focus, intention and purpose create our experience. We claim our personal power with our choices, creativity, truth and vision. The opportunity to exist at the center of our being gives us the possibility to be as infinite as the universe.

“The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that its center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” – Black Elk

Hollow Pursuits:
Social reality is an illusion. It is a subjective projection of distraction designed to dismantle our creativity, consciousness and the foundation of our being. Each of us is energetically, emotionally, intellectually and instinctually unique. Therefore, our true expression and destiny in this world is contrary to the nature of society. The density of reality distorts the creative force of our imagination and disrupts our ability to fulfill our personal vison. Most of us are not even present to our purpose or how to manifest it in our lives. There is very little opportunity in contemporary society for our soul to be expressed let alone thrive.

South of Center:
There is a myriad of elements in social reality specifically designed to keep us anxious, engaged and otherwise preoccupied with everything besides our personal destiny. The more we are amused, distracted, or entertained, the less likely we are to transform ourselves and the world. Before we can create or experience our life, it is highjacked by a plethora of stimuli that provokes our reactions of anger, denial, indifference and futility. These aspects of our daily experience hinder our ability to connect and relate with the universe. Eventually we become an invention of mind and body devoid of heart and soul.

Primal Instinct:
Survival is the standard of everyday life. Our innate social nature often dictates a narrow and shallow experience and perception. We are conditioned to exist in chaotic energies of instinctual, intellectual and emotional reactivity. Competition, desperation and selfishness blinds our vision, manipulates our thoughts and corrupts our feelings. It suppresses our enlightened mind and heart, ultimately compromising our relatedness with our intuition and our soul. We assassinate a part of ourselves everyday with our cynicism, fear and uncertainty. Our desire to survive supersedes our ability to thrive.

Smoke and Mirrors:
Our mind is an intricate forest in which we frequently wander and become lost. Thoughts often activate our sense of anxiety, doubt and irrelevance. Broken dreams and promises haunt our lives. We allow our minds to be polluted with self-condemnation, confusion and suspicion while we invent an inauthentic power and security. Our perceptions of ourselves, others and reality are often twisted into erroneous and fantasized delusions. The shield we wield against the world is the knowledge to which we are attached and conditioned from years of institutionalized education and religion at the cost of our creativity.

Stormy Seas:
We have yet to scratch the surface of our emotional awareness and expression. Our ego seizes control of our existence and influences us into becoming reactively engaged with and reliant upon social reality. When we do experience emotion, it is often a bi-polar encounter of random highs and frequent lows. We tend to be overwhelmed with feelings of anger, guilt, loss and sadness. Our addiction to and obsession with negative emotions confines us to perpetual cynicism and resignation. It dampens our experience of happiness, love, relatedness and success. The agendas of our mind constantly overpower the possibilities of our heart.

“Feel.”

Fire of the Heart:
The heart is the key to open the gateway of multidimensionality. It emits a powerful electromagnetic energy that mystifies even our imagination. This lifeforce is the core of our being. It is what unites our body and mind with our intuition and soul. The heart interacts with the universe and is the center of our personal source. It is the epicenter of our creativity and the channel through which we express our spirit into the world. Our heart is the eternal fire that purifies our thoughts and actions and transforms our emotional experiences. When we are present to our heart, we transcend the ordinary and become extraordinary.

Freedom

Helix of Insight:
Intuition is the sacred spiral that fulfills our inheritance of immortal being. When we synergize our intuition with the balance of our instinct, intellect and emotion, we free ourselves from the duality of social reality. Imagination replaces ego as we transcend the terrestrial dimension. Our being expands into an infinite experience. We are transformed into an expression of the universe. The energy of our consciousness connects us with our spirit. Intuition is the bridge that connects our creativity with our reality. It is the origin of our transformation. Our soul’s purpose is to intend our vision to become our possibility.

Heart of the Fire:
The greatest illustration of our multidimensionality is our soul. The equilibrium of our body, mind, heart and intuition manifests it into our daily lives. When we are seduced by the duality of instinct and intellect, our union with our heart and spirit is broken and we regress to default patterns of ordinary existence. When we are being an expression of our soul, our creativity inspires the extraordinary. This allows us to become our potential as spiritual beings living a human experience. How, why and who we choose to be transforms our reality. Our soul is our connection to the universe and our possibility of fulfilling on our purpose.

A Shift in Purpose:
Our experiences reflect the choices we make, our expression of being and our commitment to walk our truth. The intention we apply to our life is what empowers our purpose. Our full potential exists when we release everything that no longer serves us or our communities. It is within this clearing that possibility is born. Every day we have an opportunity to shift our energy and become a vessel of the universe. This allows us to sustain the vital alchemy of our spirit, heart, mind and body. We manifest our purpose when we relate with the source of all that is and ever will be.

Being of the Universe:
Everything we emulate in social reality is everything we are not. We invest in the stories we and others invent about us because we are afraid and/or unwilling to believe in ourselves. We are an infinite being of eternal energy with extraordinary possibility beyond even our imagination. We have been, are and will always be an expression of multidimensionality. Within each of us is the key to every mystery. We have an opportunity to empower our life in every moment of our experience. When we envision, create and manifest our purpose, the universe aligns with our intention and our soul becomes the source of our being.

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.”

A Universal Being

We live a fraction of who we are.”

The Sum of the Self:
We are spirits held hostage by the linear lifestyle of an enforced reality. Our existence is based upon our pursuits for security, success and survival. Our lives are figments of a forgotten fantasy, invented by ancient civilizations for authoritarian ways and means. As human beings, we tend to perform fruitless roles, oblivious to the infinite possibilities of multi-dimensional experience. We are mere shadows of who we can be. We allow our egos and instincts to govern our lives. We are distracted, diverted and mystified by the amusements of opinion, politics, sports and an excess of inequality, injustice and tyranny.

Ghost in the Machine:
The perceptions we choose to adopt of our lives are inaccurate and incomplete. We are emulators of beliefs, careers, habits and environments. We condition ourselves with the conventional knowledge of education, history and religion in a vain quest to acclimate to linear, social reality. No matter how much we seek to know about the world in which we live, we are still devoid of the essence of life. The more we attempt to satisfy our desire and vanity, the emptier we become. We are phantoms wandering through a virtual maze, denying ourselves the very fulfillment we yearn.

Maze

Hollow Pursuits:
Everyday reality keeps us on the run. We sprint down the pathways and turn each corner with the hope and promise of making a great escape from our social enslavement. We tether ourselves to the known in a desperate attempt to win a race designed for us to lose. The patterns never change and the carrot dangles just out of our reach no matter how fast we run, how high we jump or how much we sacrifice. Yet, we still push ahead into the embrace of an inevitable and predictable future as we carry the baggage of our past and the trepidation of our present always expecting a favorable future.

The Space Between:
All that was, is and ever will be is defined by our personal perception. Our anxiety, confusion and oblivion impel us to adopt self-defensive, societal filters. The state of perpetual shock we weather overwhelms us with harsh inevitable outcomes, coercing us into the whirlwind of reality’s vortex. It prohibits our desire for adventure, enrichment, excitement, and fulfillment. The social invention of impending threat and tragedy condition and oppress us with an intensity unrivaled or exceeded by the intention of our own purpose. Our lives become an empty space between the moments of our birth and our death.

MT

The Art of Projection:
Our experiences are akin to animated images on a movie screen. We are deeply engaged in the dramatic narratives and linear sequences of our lives, mystified by our blind obligation to a common reality. Our disassociation with destiny anesthetizes us to the true expression of our soul. We live separately from our essence, a mere reflection of who we truly are. We wager every possibility of purpose for fleeting encounters of inauthentic enlightenment. The simulated life we experience echoes deep in the caverns of our vacant hearts and souls. We are spectators watching our imaginary existence projected onto the screen of reality.

“What is real beyond what is real.”

Use Your Illusion:
There are very few things in social reality that are real. Our subjective perception of it adds another degree of deception. We have been conditioned to believe, experience and live in contemporary kingdoms of fantasy. Not because reality is difficult, hostile or unbearable. Nor is it that our selective perspective deems it so. Reality has, is and will always be distorted and manipulated. The temptations of profit, power and supremacy are too great for those who seek to conceal their personal fears and insecurities with control, influence and wealth. Reality was invented to distract us from our destiny.

SOH

The Truth of Reality:
When we understand that nothing is real, we begin to accept what is true. Our instincts, thoughts and feelings are nothing more than physical, mental and emotional expressions. Everything we sense in life are effects of all our experiences coinciding and transpiring in linear reality. It is a global deception designed to preoccupy us with the comedy, drama, horror and tragedy of everyday life. Our quest for amusement becomes our experience. Reality is a prison of conformity. It is a social paradigm that has diminished our infinite possibility to an ordinary pastime.

The Reality of Truth:
No two individual truths are the same. Though billions around the world use the cultural and social filters of politics, religion and tradition to define their truth, this rite of passage is distinct to one’s personal experience. Therefore, these common avenues will never cultivate our expression of being. Authorities of social reality would have us believe our truth is only real if it is commonly accepted by a popular consensus of our peers. Our truth is neither qualified, quantified or relative. It is claimed and expressed not just with our body or mind, yet also with our heart and soul.

UBIV

The Art of Being:
We are not our body, mind, heart or soul. We are all these elements of our existence and more, beyond our imagination. Our life expression is one best embodied by who we are being in the present. This experience begins and ends with accepting, empowering, listening and supporting others in our lives. The balance of our actions, thoughts, feelings and insights sustain our true nature to envision and manifest possibilities for ourselves to enrich our awareness, experience and understanding. When we are in the flow of the universal rhythm of being, our perception of life is transformed. We are free.

A Universal Being:
We are everything and nothing. We are an eternal expression of being consigned to a reality of restriction and rule. Who we are is far beyond our comprehension, imagination and vision. It is not what we know, the position we hold or the gifts we possess that make us extraordinary. It is everything we may become that is most remarkable. Our infinite potential exists when we embrace and express our multi-dimensional experience of being. Our possibility manifests our purpose. We are a universal being emanating creativity, consciousness, community and love to transform ourselves and embody our truth.

“We are only as universal as we live ourselves to be.”
