The Awakening

“Awareness is only the beginning…”

The Woke and The Awakened:

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

Breaking the Spell:

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

In-the-Flow:

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

Creation’s Creation:

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

“Creativity is awareness in action.”

The Art of Awakening:

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

Discovery in Observation:

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

Kindling Consciousness:

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

Awakened Being:

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

“Now is always the era of our awakening.”

A Cure for Wellbeing

“Illness is the opportunity to heal.”

Tattered and Torn:

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

For Better or Worse:

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

Social Venom:

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

For What it’s Worth:

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

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

The First Medicine:

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

The Second Medicine:

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

The Third Medicine:

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

The Fourth Medicine:

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

Being of Balance:

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

“Being is the medicine of the universe.”    

Plan Be

“We are.”

The Edge:

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

Lethal Liaisons:

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

Sleight of Perception:

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

Organized Diversion:

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

“Being is believing.”

Transition of Power:

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

Dynamics of Being:

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

Source of Energy:

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

Universal Destiny:

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

“Being is the essence of the universe.”

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.

QD VII

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.”

“Energy is the essence of the universe.”

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

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

US VIII

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

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

US XVIII

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

“Being is a universal experience.”

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

US X

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

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

US XII

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

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

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.”

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

BE

One for All

“Survival is the deception of humanity.”

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

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

OFA IV

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

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

OFA V (2)

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

“Service is the nature of the universe.”

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

OFA VI

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

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

OFA III

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

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

“All we are is all we give.”

OFA VII

 

Transcendental Shift

“We are the key to the universe.”

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

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

ts ii

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

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

ts ix

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

“Energy is the currency of consciousness.”

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

ts

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

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

ts viii

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

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

“Enlightenment is consciousness of being.”

ts xi

A Being of Power

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

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

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

ABOP III

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

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

ABOP VI

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

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

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

ABOP VII

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

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

ABOP VIII

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

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

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