Fireworks, with people watching

So here we are, halfway through the Gregorian calendar year of 2013.  Wild, crazy, epic time!  However, most people still don’t quite understand, or even suspect, what is really happening in and around our world.  Most people are still stuck in the old limited 3D paradigms and their methods of processing information, thinking, feeling, and even living.  As a direct result, most people are more than a little nervous, upset, fearful, insecure, and uncertain about what the future holds, as their ‘tried and true’ old strategies for navigating reality are just . . . not . . . working anymore!

The basic problem is this:  The vast majority of the human population still seems unable to just BE in the moment called ‘now’, live from there.  But what is actually much worse is that they have never even really thought deeply about it, much less attempted to discipline their minds to stay in that immensely powerful and creative space.  And, believe me, it takes a LOT of discipline to accomplish that, and constant vigilance as well!  But even that isn’t really the core problem.  This is:  Most people still LIVE in either the past or the future, and not at all in the now.  OK, maybe in a flashing moment of fun or ecstasy, the ego releases its vice-grip on their consciousness, sure — for a few brief moments at best.  However, outside of a few zany artists and mystics and the like, most people still are too deeply programmed in the old 3D ways of living and surviving to simply let go of what does not, and never has existed:  the past and the future.  They have never been taught to, nor really even felt the need to, live wholly in the Now.

Alarm Clock - 5 to midnightBrief periods of ‘past-think’ can be OK, even helpful on occasion, if one is eliciting the deep positive feelings from moments lived fully in joy or love — like those of the passion of a fresh new romantic relationship, or a childhood roller-coaster ride, or riding your first wave to the end.  ‘Future-think’ can be helpful on occasion as well, like when one is using L.O.A. techniques to visualize a desired scene or outcome, or planning a fun vacation.  But maintaining your mind occupied in thoughts of either the past or the future is severely limiting if engaged in exclusively, or even  more than a very small percentage of the time.

You see, most people – including myself, of course, much of my past life – tend to constantly be dwelling on the past and the future in their moment-to-moment thoughts.  Therefore, because our mind in that mode is almost perpetually ‘in’ the past or ‘in’ the future – ‘That trip I took to the beach last month was awesome!’; ‘I hope the baby isn’t coming down with a cold again. . . .’; ‘I wonder if I can afford that new phone next week?’; ‘That was some awesome sex with her yesterday. . . ‘; ‘Where is the money to pay the bills going to come from?’; ‘God, I hope my 401K is enough for me to retire on’; ‘I hope someone comes to save us soon from this horrible mess we’re in’; etc., etc. – what is supposed to be a ‘when’ actually becomes a where.  Unfortunately, that is exactly ‘where’ our egos dwell (our intellect primarily, our purely material-world-oriented 3D minds) — in the past and the future!  To make it worse, most people are still stuck in basing their expectations of future behavior and results and circumstances on past behavior and results and circumstances, especially when it comes to their personal relationships and finances – which just keeps them stuck in the ego’s murky, controlling domain even more.

Only the NOW actually exists in Reality.  This has even been established ‘scientifically’, via advanced physics.  In relation to this world, this realm, this dimension, the past is long gone.  The future is not yet manifest, and is totally malleable via the ‘control room’ of your most prevalent thoughts.  And emotions, especially the positive ones, are only felt in the precise nanosecond of now.  Therefore, logically speaking, if we want to live life to our fullest, experience and enjoy what this journey on GaiaSpiritual - Time in hands’s surface has to offer, we must learn (discipline ourselves) to live only in the Eternal Now — which is the only ‘place’ where we truly can BE and FEEL fully alive and vibrant anyway!  Fortunately, we are ‘now’ getting lots and lots of help from Gaia herself (and others) as what we perceive as ‘linear time’ is rapidly collapsing.  I’m sure you’ve noticed.

I hope I’ve been able to convey at least a little of what came to me the other morning in that strange, wonderful space between sleeping and waking.  It’s definitely ‘time’ to let go of the past, forgive any and all perceived trespasses against us (and by us – self-forgiveness is at least equally important), and simply move on.  It’s also ‘time’ to create our wonderful future in the moment of now, by taking full responsibility in each and every moment of our days and nights to take the actions necessary to improve our world – no more delays, no more fear, no more hesitation — and be who we all truly ARE at our Sacred Core.  As long as we ‘dwell’ in either the past or the future, our egos can maintain control of our Selves, and keep us distracted, side-tracked, and out of touch with our Center.  In the end – which all signs are indicating is NOW, by the way – true liberation can only come from Within.  Only by understanding where the shackles that bind us are hidden, can we finally find them, recognize them for what they are, and unbind ourselves from the limiting constraints of the egoic body-mind, regardless of where those constraints and deep psychological programs originally came from.  It matters not.  Only our personal liberation does.

I look forward to us all dwelling in a much better ‘place’ very, very soon. . . . .

DON’T WORRY, BE HAPPY! 2012 Revised Edition


Lately I’ve been reading a lot of blogs and articles and such under the general theme of ‘ascension’ and related spiritual topics – and the questions and comments that people have about ‘all this stuff’.   I find it very, very . . . . puzzling, I suppose, that the majority of the questions and ‘concerns’ regarding our theoretical lives in 5D (the fifth dimension, the frequency we are theoretically ‘jumping’ into at the end of this year) – coming from supposedly ‘spiritually educated Lightworkers’ who have read books and articles and meditated and such for years now — have to do with personal health.  Um, folks, do you not realize that your physical bodies are primarily material constructs, part of the third dimension?  Do you not also realize that we are Eternal Spiritual Beings having a 3D experience, and not the other way around?  In other words, people, since the fifth dimension is primarily non-material, and our powers of direct manifestation are radically increased at those levels (and ‘time’ as we know it does not exist, so nor does aging), AND our bodies are currently being transmuted into ‘Light bodies’ with a crystalline (versus simple carbon) base – well, all your concerns are completely unfounded, you see!  EVEN IF YOUR PHYSICAL BODY IS ‘LOST’ or ‘TOASTED’ IN THE ENERGETIC TRANSITION, you will simply and easily be able to create a brand new one in 5D, and one ‘custom designed’ to your wildest specifications, right?  So PLEASE stop stressing yourself out about this stuff already!  What you are doing by allowing your EGO to continually feed you with fear-based thoughts is inhibiting your progress – and making things much more difficult than they have to be.

How do I ‘know’ this?  Because I have already been through this process myself on the physical level to some extent (not finished, mind you, no way, but pretty well advanced).  I have not gotten truly ‘sick’ (needing medical attention) for at least 15 years now, nor have had to visit a dentist.  I can outsurf and outjog and outwork almost any man half my age, too – on less food and sleep, and without any artificial aids.  Why, you ask?  Or, more importantly, HOW???  Well, I simply embraced this process a long time ago, surrendered to it and, along with some very effective techniques I learned back then about controlling my thoughts and attitudes and manifestation and such, worked my buns off at creating a body that was not just ‘healthy’, but (to use a term getting popular these days) thriving.  It’s not hard at all really.  However, it does take an enormous amount of self-discipline.

Anyway, DON’T WORRY, FOLKS!  Just focus on getting you and your body through this year OK, and you’ll be very well taken care of when our next adventure starts around the northern winter solstice.


A few years ago I was fortunate to run across a book entitled ‘Happiness Is A Choice’, by Barry Neil Kaufman.  Its basic message was this:  Personal happiness is a personal choice (pretty obvious, huh?).  The author cites studies and research to point out that things like money, material possessions, type of job, family cohesion, etc. have some influence on a person’s ability to feel content and happy with their lives – statistically speaking — but not nearly as much as most people believe (those pesky ‘beliefs’ again, huh?).  In other words, your ‘circumstances’ have NOTHING to do with your level of contentment or joy — or, to be more accurate I guess, happiness — in your life.   To put in another way, your personal happiness in life is almost completely a matter of ATTITUDE and PERSPECTIVE, you see.

This I learned and personally (and viscerally) a very long time ago, via my old career (as a necessity to making a living), and so had it deeply ingrained into my psyche.  That did NOT guarantee my having to often re-mind myself of its veracity, however.  Constant mental and emotional discipline. . . . .

Anyway, I hope this helps some of you who may not be living in complete and ineffable joy during these challenging times (lol).  Carry on . . . . . and CHOOSE HAPPINESS!

P.S. – Good news is coming soon to help you in this quest, so hang in there!!!
