Kevin Todeschi talks about 2012

I heard Paul McCartney speak at the UN Climate Change conference that opened in Copenhagen today. He reminded us of the smogs , real pea-soupers that were found to be harmful and how we dealt with them. He spoke of other achievements such as the banning of smoking in public places. I remember suffering smoke in cinemas and pubs. Eating vegetarian food at least one day a week is also a ways we we can all contribute.

There is an increasing global awareness and a desire to implement changes for the healing our planet. People from all walks of life are contributing. This gllobal healing is not just something that should be left to the politicians. We are all involved. We ARE the change we wish to see.

I think Kevin Todeschi sums up very nicely what 2012 is all about.

A New World Order in this context is not about the supremacy of certain nations over other nations; instead, it is about a new focus for the world as a whole. That focus is about truly understanding that each and every one of us is Our Brothers/Sisters Keeper. In other words, we as individuals and as nations are responsible for every single individual who is less fortunate than ourselves. The Edgar Cayce readings describe that responsibility in this way: make of thine OWN heart an understanding that thou must answer for thine own brother, for thine own neighbor! and who is thine neighbor? He that lives next door, or he that lives on the other side of the world? He, rather, that is in NEED of understanding! He who has faltered; he who has fallen even by the way. HE is thine neighbor, and thou must answer for him! (Edgar Cayce reading #3976-8) From Cayces perspective, the next Age will eventually embody an understanding of this focus.

Synchronicity Oracle

Here at the Damanhur site , see the magnificent Temples of Humankind and consult the Oracle of Synchronicity

Damanhur Temples of Humankind
Buried 100 feet underground in northern Italy, about 30 miles from Turin, rests a subterranean marvel known as the "The Damanhur Temples of Humankind." It's the second stop on "Good Morning America's" Magical Mystery Tour.
This image superimposes a map of the temple on top of the Italian mountainside where it sits. The project, which was begun in 1978, is the idea of a self-proclaimed "visionary" named Oberto Airaudiwho, a retired insurance broker who goes by the name Falco. He says the temples are the re-creations of "visions" of elaborate halls, or temples, he experienced as a child.

I think discernment is a very important word. 
My affirmation for this month : "I intend to read everything with discernment."

Inspirational Message
Use your sharp-sightedness to make clear distinctions and wise choices. Move forward with confidence in your inner compass.
Discernment is the recognition of the soul's impulse within our lives. It builds our intuitive ability to act with an awareness of the power that is concealed within the present moment. Discernment requires that we regularly take a personal inventory of our values, beliefs, past actions, present hopes, and future dreams. 
We live our lives based on what we believe.  Our actions are preceded by our beliefs. Our consciousness is reflected back to us. What we look for we will find. So, the question is 'where do our beliefs come from?'.  I would guess the overwhelming answer is 'from what others have told us'. We have very few original thoughts that comprise our beliefs. As individuals, we are defined by assumptions that have been formed over generations.
But, what if we are more than this? What if we are powerful beings about to awaken from a long night of dreams? What if we are at a tipping point of illumination, on the verge of uncovering the deep knowing of our origin and with it the capacity to bring about global peace? What would it be like to feel our connections to the whole and choose our actions based on this as reality? How would you be different today? How would this realization influence your actions?
Our collective challenge and opportunity is to surrender the illusions that keep us cocooned in assumptions and limitations. And, like the caterpillar, dissolve into our imaginal selves and redefine the world envisioning a future that welcomes the butterfly.
We hope the Angel of Discernment will illuminate your life this month. May your heart and mind discern and embrace the presence of your soul. 

P.S. If you worked with the Angel of Trust during October, take a few moments to release it with your gratitude before welcoming the Angel of Discernment into your life for the month of November.

A vision for the future of our planet.

Pierre Teilhard deChardin
Activation of Energy

The Shift of the Ages is a prophesized transition from an age of scarcity, domination and division to one of abundance, cooperation and unity. Humanity will learn to operate and co-create our world with awareness, balance and deliberation. A world of harmony and peace amongst nations, races, genders, ideologies and religions.

A world where there is acceptance by all of the many paths available for the human spirit to realize its highest potential through art, music, culture, education, science, religion, adventure and joyous living.

A world where all life on Planet Earth lives in balance, harmony and respect.

A world where perfect health, well-being, abundance and profound inner peace are the norm amongst our brothers and sisters of Planet Earth.

A world where science and technology mature to serve the planet in wholesome, productive and abundant ways that feed, clothe, house and nourish the body and spirit of the world's populations, while nurturing Planet Earth's pristine nature.

A world where sustainable communities are linked together by worthy causes bringing intelligence, wisdom, compassion, sustenance, spirit, and a sense of belonging and unity to everyone.

A world where effective government abides by the principles of Divine Harmony and operates from a vision of humanity's greater purpose.

A world where the people of Planet Earth act as the single being that they are, with vision, intent and conscious creativity while simultaneously honoring and nurturing the Divine Individuality of each member from birth through wholesome education and a holistically-oriented social and economic structure.

A world where all life on Planet Earth joins in a single song of praise and gratitude and reaches out to the heavens for exploration, connection and adventure.

 I believe that as the dreamers of this dream this vision can become our reality. We are the change we wish to see.

Kahlil Gibran on Beauty

On Beauty
 Kahlil Gibran

Where shall you seek beauty, and how shall you find her unless she herself be your way and your guide?
And how shall you speak of her except she be the weaver of your speech?

The aggrieved and the injured say, "Beauty is kind and gentle.
Like a young mother half-shy of her own glory she walks among us."
And the passionate say, "Nay, beauty is a thing of might and dread.
Like the tempest she shakes the earth beneath us and the sky above us."

The tired and the weary say, "Beauty is of soft whisperings. She speaks in our spirit.
Her voice yields to our silences like a faint light that quivers in fear of the shadow."
But the restless say, "We have heard her shouting among the mountains,
And with her cries came the sound of hoofs, and the beating of wings and the roaring of lions."

At night the watchmen of the city say, "Beauty shall rise with the dawn from the east."
And at noontide the toilers and the wayfarers say,
"We have seen her leaning over the earth from the windows of the sunset."

In winter say the snow-bound, "She shall come with the spring leaping upon the hills." 
And in the summer heat the reapers say, 
"We have seen her dancing with the autumn leaves, 
and we saw a drift of snow in her hair."
All these things have you said of beauty, 
Yet in truth you spoke not of her but of needs unsatisfied,
And beauty is not a need but an ecstasy. 
It is not a mouth thirsting nor an empty hand stretched forth,
But rather a heart enflamed and a soul enchanted.

It is not the image you would see nor the song you would hear,
But rather an image you see though you close your eyes and a song you hear though you shut your ears.
It is not the sap within the furrowed bark, nor a wing attached to a claw,
But rather a garden for ever in bloom and a flock of angels for ever in flight.

People of Orphalese, beauty is life when life unveils her holy face.
But you are life and you are the veil.
Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror.
But you are eternity and you are the mirror.

The Soul of the World

http://enlightenyourday.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/03/9780062502179.jpgThe soul of the World is nourished by people's happiness. And also by uinhappiness, envy and jealousy. To realise oneäs destiny is a person's only real obligation. All things are one. And , when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it. 

From " The Alchemist " by Paulo Coelho

This book was sent to me by one of my oldest friends around Christmas time , 1995,  and marked the beginning of a long journey.

The Alchemist and When Everything Changes

 Recently I have been experiencing 'time warps'.  An friend whom I haven't seen for 20 years finds me on Facebook and takes me to a Beatles concert  The Cavern Beatles tribute to the Beatles and their music . This , at a time when I am feeling down and drained from dealing with challenges that have come my way recently. It turns out to be a joyful reunion . The music is happy and uplifting and I remind myself that  " Life is always conspiring in my favour ".  It doesn't always look that way , but , it is true.

Paulo Coelho says this in "The Alchemist" a book that came along over ten years ago when I was going through turbulent times and profoundly changed my life. Now , Neal Donald Walsch's latest book , " When Everything Changes, Change Everything " is having a similar effect on me,  continuing to inspire me  as I commit to the process while  reading, reflecting and applying what I read to my own situation , my own truth , my own thoughts.

" The Alchemist " came along over ten years ago when I was going through turbulent times and profoundly changed my life and now " When Everything Changes, Change Everything. "

Everything that has been happening, is happening just the way it must, in order for me to have the opportunity to really hear the voice of my soul and to see and experience things from a higher perspective. To learn and to grow.

Problems and challenges

I have always grown from my problems and challenges, from the things that didn't work out. That's when I've really learned.

Let there be light

My Light and Your Light is needed and the good news is; there's a crack in everything ; that's how the Light gets in.

Light-1.jpg image by godintelligence

The Light Decree

From the Light of God that I Am, I decree
the Light and I Are One.
This moment, I flood myself with Light, casting out doubts and fears as I touch every corner of my being with Light.
I honour the Light of God within.
I honour the Light of God above.
It is all One, connecting at different points,
and I Am one with it everywhere.
I will not let anything come between Us.
I will stay connected to Light and Love, always.
I will no longer deny my Oneness with all of Creation.
I Am ending all bonds of darkness and separation from eternal Light and Love now -- for all time.
I Am Light-filled -- all weights are gone.
I Am surrounded above and below with Pure Light and Pure Love.
I Charge and I Charge and I Charge myself with radiant I Am Light.
I feel the flow of Light that now makes all things right.
All that is meant to be mine by Divine Right has Light cast upon it.
It is released to me in Divine right order, unhindered,
under Grace in a magical way.
I Am Love, Light, Power, and Divine Wisdom
And so it is, and so I let it be.

-Maureen Moss



Started the day meditating on these words that my teachers wrote on the board every time they presented a theory,map or model.
Psted " THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH"  on my status on facebook 
Jean- Cyrille says - This is one truth
Mara says- this is ONE truth ... a truth 
Valerie says - this is not MY truth!!!
Mara says - Since everything changes, MY truth changes too.
Valerie says- when everything changes...and yes...you can choose to change the smaller truths...with intention...You can even change the past in the present moment
Mara says - exciting , isn't it ? So many aspects to "THE TRUTH ".
What is THE TRUTH ?
What is YOUR truth ?

28 July, 2009


The words of this poem really resonated with me this morning. For the past six weeks I have been living in uncertainty regrading an issue that still has not been resolved. It has not been easy for me to live with the not knowing and endless questions of " what if ....?"

I have come to the point where i have realised the insanity of worrying about something that may or may not happen; the insanity of fearful thoughts that prevent me from enjoying this holy instant to the full.

No, it is time to stop waiting for the storm to pass and time to learn to dance in the rain !

It is true that since everything is always changing
can we ever be certain of anything ?

I shall meditate on
" Certainty confines " .

There is freedom in chaos.

We often think of change as change for the worse, but is it so ?
Things can change in an instant.
Things can change for the better, and better that we ever dared imagine.

Finally, I remind myself " THIS IS NOT THE TRUTH "

Certainty undermines one's power, and turns happiness
into a long shot. Certainty confines.
Dears, there is nothing in your life that will
not change - especially your ideas of God.
Look what the insanity of righteous knowledge can do:
crusade and maim thousands
in wanting to convert that which
is already gold
into gold.
Certainty can become an illness
that creates hate and
God once said to Tuka,
"Even I am ever changing -
I am ever beyond
what I may have once put my seal upon,
may no longer be
the greatest
~ Tukaram ~

Meditation , the monkey mind and Buddha's dogs

This wonderful poem is a Panhala posting ( see details below) and reflects my own experiences of retreats and meditation. Beautifully honest too.

Buddha's Dogs
I'm at a day-long meditation retreat, eight hours of watching
my mind with my mind,
and I already fell asleep twice and nearly fell out of my chair,
and it's not even noon yet.
In the morning session, I learned to count my thoughts, ten in
on minute, and the longest
was to leave and go to San Anselmo and shop, then find an outdoor cafe and order a glass
of Sancerre, smoked trout with roasted potatoes and baby
carrots and a bowl of gazpacho.
But I stayed and learned to name my thoughts, so far they are:
wanting, wanting, wanting,
wanting, wanting, wanting, wanting, wanting, judgment,
Don't identify with your
, the teacher says,
you are not your personality, not your
then he bangs the gong for lunch. Whoever, whatever I am is
given instruction
in the walking meditation and the eating meditation and walks
outside with the other
meditators, and we wobble across the lake like The Night of the
Living Dead.
I meditate slowly, falling over a few times because I kept my
foot in the air too long,
towards a bench, sit slowly down, and slowly eat my sandwich,
noticing the bread,
(sourdough), noticing the taste, (tuna, sourdough), noticing
the smell, (sourdough, tuna),
thanking the sourdough, the tuna, the ocean, the boat, the
fisherman, the field, the grain,
the farmer, the Saran Wrap that kept this food fresh for this
body made of food and desire
and the hope of getting through the rest of this day without
dying of boredom.
Sun then cloud then sun. I notice a maple leaf on my sandwich.
It seems awfully large.
Slowly brushing it away, I feel so sad I can hardly stand it, so I
name my thoughts; they are:
sadness about my mother, judgment about my father, wanting
the child I never had.
I notice I've been chasing the same thoughts like dogs around
the same park most of my life,
notice the leaf tumbling gold to the grass. The gong sounds,
and back in the hall.
I decide to try lying down meditation, and let myself sleep. The
Buddha in my dream is me,
surrounded by dogs wagging their tails, licking my hands.
I wake up
for the forgiveness meditation, the teacher saying,never put
anyone out of your heart
and the heart opens and knows it won't last and will have to
open again and again,
chasing those dogs around and around in the sun then cloud
then sun.

Tap into a great day

EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique is a great way of re-programming yourself to create well-being . Tapping can clear unwanted stress, anxiety, worries and negative thinking that prevent you from feeling good.

I heard about EFT a long time ago and have practiced it on and off , but now with the help of this video clip I intend to make it a part of my daily routine.

I really intend to have a good day !

Eat a meal mindfully

From : http://www.care2.com/greenliving/a-mindfulness-meal-meditation.html

A Mindfulness Meal Meditation

To eat mindfully is to live in the present. It calls for paying attention to every act, every sensation and perception, for its own sake, in the moment. From the start to the finish of your meal, your intention is to link the moments together into a continuous stream of sensory awareness. Some suggestions:

Be mindful. To become focused, become silent and breathe in a relaxed manner. Choose a time when you’re not hurried or distracted by other things.

Visualize the meal. Become focused in your mind’s eye on what you’re going to prepare, its appearance, aroma, ingredients, etc.

Plan the meal. Mentally focus on all the steps involved in preparing the meal. Will you prepare it? For whom will you prepare it? What will you make?

Prepare the meal. Be mindful of the action of washing the food, such as vegetables you may be preparing for a fresh salad. Notice yourself reaching for the refrigerator door, and other preparation activities.

Set the table. The table on which you eat can be as sacred as the rest of the meal. Create a table that is inviting, for both you and the food.

Serve the meal. Be mindful of each action associated with serving the meal: selecting dishes and utensils, setting the table, bringing food to the table, etc.

Eat the meal. As with the Zen monastic meal, be mindful of each aspect of the food you’re eating. To begin consider saying words of thanks or appreciation for the food. Savor the aroma of the food by inhaling deeply.

Clean up. Regard this as a sacred process, too. It is just as important a part of the meal as the other phases.

Digest the food. After you’ve eaten, be aware of how the food feels in your stomach, how you’re feeling. Are you aware that you overate? Under-ate? Are you still hungry, or ate just the right amount?

From start to finish and throughout the dining process, continue to witness the effects of having prepared, eaten, and digested the meal. For in the witnessing lies the essence of life itself.

Journeying god

Journeying god,
pitch your tent with mine
so that I may not become deterred
by hardship, strangeness, doubt.
Show me the movement I must make
toward a wealth not dependent on possessions,
toward a wisdom not based on books,
toward a strength not bolstered by might,
toward a god not confined to heaven.
Help me to find myself as I walk in other's shoes.

For the Unknown Self

For the Unknown Self

So much of what delights and troubles you
Happens on a surface
You take for ground.
Your mind thinks your life alone,
Your eyes consider air your nearest neighbour,
Yet it seems that a little below your heart
There houses in you an unknown self
Who prefers the patterns of the dark
And is not persuaded by the eye's affection
Or caught by the flash of thought.
It is a self that enjoys contemplative patience
With all your unfolding expression,
Is never drawn to break into light
Though you entangle yourself in unworthiness
And misjudge what you do and who you are.
It presides within like an evening freedom
That will often see you enchanted by twilight
Without ever recognizing the falling night,
It resembles the under-earth of your visible life:
All you do and say and think is fostered
Deep in its opaque and prevenient clay.
It dwells in a strange, yet rhythmic ease
That is not ruffled by disappointment;
It presides in a deeper current of time
Free from the force of cause and sequence
That otherwise shapes your life.
Were it to break forth into day,
Its dark light might quench your mind,
For it knows how your primeval heart
Sisters every cell of your life
To all your known mind would avoid,
Thus it knows to dwell in you gently,
Offering you only discrete glimpses
Of how you construct your life.
At times, it will lead you strangely,
Magnetized by some resonance
That ambushes your vigilance.
It works most resolutely at night
As the poet who draws your dreams,
Creating for you many secret doors,
Decorated with pictures of your hunger;
It has the dignity of the angelic
That knows you to your roots,
Always awaiting your deeper befriending
To take you beyond the threshold of want,
Where all your diverse strainings
Can come to wholesome ease.
~ John O'Donohue ~

Zohar and Marshall introduced 12 qualities of SQ. They derive these principles from the qualities that define complex adaptive systems. In biology, complex adaptive systems are living systems that create order out of chaos, they create order and information and defy the law of entropy. [Zohar 4]

Those principles are:

  • Self-Awareness: Knowing what I believe in and value, and what deeply motivates me
  • Spontaneity: Living in and being responsive to the moment
  • Being Vision- and Value-Led: Acting from principles and deep beliefs, and living accordingly
  • Holism: Seeing larger patterns, relationships, and connections; having a sense of belonging
  • Compassion: Having the quality of "feeling-with" and deep empathy
  • Celebration of Diversity: Valuing other people for their differences, not despite them
  • Field Independence: Standing against the crowd and having one's own convictions
  • Humility: Having the sense of being a player in a larger drama, of one's true place in the world
  • Tendency to Ask Fundamental "Why?" Questions: Needing to understand things and get to the bottom of them
  • Ability to Reframe: Standing back from a situation or problem and seeing the bigger picture; seeing problems in a wider context
  • Positive Use of Adversity: Learning and growing from mistakes, setbacks, and suffering
  • Sense of Vocation: Feeling called upon to serve, to give something back

We reap what we sow

The universe is like a dome; it vibrates to that which you say in it, and answers the same back to you; so also is the law of action we reap what we sow.

Hazrat Inayat Khan
