Journey of Possibilities

Making Sense Common

Interviews are always an opportunity to share unexpected tasty tidbits about life and learning. Sheryl Sitts demonstrates her prowess as a great interviewer in this one. I appreciated the journey of possibilities with her.

What I find is that articulating experiences that have led to deep discoveries is like trying to explain quantum physics to a mathematically challenged redneck. It sounds far fetched and incredulous. Still, the effort is made to make sense common and I look for metaphors and/or other examples to illustrate points of order.

We, as humans, are evolving into a greater understanding of how connected we are with the reality we experience. Those experiences are only limited by our ability to let go of deeply embedded belief systems that impede our mind’s ability to cognate something new and unknown to date. How we ask for understanding also makes a difference; whether we are willing to emotionally risk being buffeted by a new experience is nearly akin to the fear of public speaking… even above the fear of death.

Education and intelligence only go so far, we have to be able to speak the language of the listener. There are so many labyrinths in the listening that speaking to them all is nearly impossible. And, with that, here’s the write up:

Zen Benefiel, MA, MBA, Best-Selling Author, Transformational Life & Leadership Coach, 2 Small Biz Guys Co-Host, Facilitator and more (www.ZenBenefiel.com) visits with host Sheryl Sitts (www.JourneyOfPossibilities.com) about his first clairaudient experience at 4, a near-death experience in his teens, and about shifting our vibrational frequency to connect more easily with other beings in our galaxy living at different planes of consciousness (and why there’s nothing to fear).

They relate Zen’s vast business expertise to the importance of meditation (finding a quiet place in whatever way you can), the power of getting in rhythm with the heartbeat of the Universe, blending this earthly existence with exploring other realities, using tones of the Solfeggio frequency, sexuality and anal probes, alien abductions and disclosure, and more! If you’re ready for a nice balance of earth and business talk with galactic exploration, you’ll enjoy this one!

Year End 2016 – How are we doing?

How Are We Doing?

So many things have transpired this last year and my absence in posting is regretful. I’m warmed by the sharing of thoughts and inspiration to be change agents for the transformation of what I know as our ‘planetary civilization.’ References to it abound in indigenous cultures throughout the world, neglected by the ‘western thought’ that seems to be locked into the idea that we have ‘dominion’ over the Earth when, in fact, we are ‘stewards’ that have heretofore been diminished by the louder voices of capitalism and greed. We are all on the hero’s journey.

The Mayan Calendar, along with a half dozen others at least (Aztec, Chinese, Egyptian, Hindu, Hopi, Sumerian) portrays this time as one of the emergence of consciousness. According to some references, there is a 50-year window as we shift from the Piscean to the Aquarian age. It began in August of 1987 with the Harmonic Convergence, reached the apex at the Winter Solstice of 2012 and proceeds to 2037 where, perhaps, we enter a Type 1 Civilization on the Kardashev scale. Others portray it from their POV; Aurobindo, Ballard, Blavatsky, Blanchard, Campbell, Keys, Maynard, Maxwell, Marx-Hubbard, Scharmer, Senge and countless more.

Simply put, we have a rise in awareness (personal/planetary/professional) that leads to understanding holistic systems (ego to eco or ego to wego) and an ability/capacity to extend that awareness back into the existing systems, which is the second phase occurring after the 2012 Solstice. The first few years are obviously a little wonky as we grapple with articulating and implementing this understanding. The co-presencing activity process and u.lab fits this scenario well. In this scenario, it doesn’t matter what is happening off-planet. We can only deal with what is in front of us here, now. How we do that is critical, an imperative notion to become ONE in the diversity present.

Analysis paralysis can and does stifle the process. Imho, we seek FLOW… like Csikszentmihalyi’s Psychology of Optimal Experience – what is it? How do we determine it? Does it come from a place that naturally resides within us, like Otto states about the co-presencing; or, but it’s all around if we could but perceive, as Graeme Edge states. Symptomatic notions are indeed in process of transformation as we continue to find solidarity in discussions about NOW and its effect on the future. Deep listening only matters when we are asking the right questions, first.

We are engaged in a state of self-actualization and self-realization simultaneously – a work-in-progress mirrored by our outer realities. If we question where we are, a quick look in front of us will give us amazing answers. Even as I type, my thoughtmosphere expands to include a repleteness of infinite intelligence working behind the scenes, the unseen hand that we all know and experience as serendipity and synchronicity in our lives… driven by the desire to be ONE in an individuated form, a perfect thread in the tapestry.

Observation is a reflection of lens we look through, whether we choose to see connection or discord is up to us. If everything is connected and we see discord, then perhaps we see need to see with new eyes and speak with a new voice. Granted, the most challenging place to be is connected and silent. There is an old adage… to know, to dare, to do and to be silent. In a state of ultra-connectedness, the ‘voice’ of one can and does emote through others.

Perhaps the indefensible thoughts of others are what is coming up now as we witness the world in change and become the re-framers of conversations toward things that matter. It seems there are so many attempting to say the same thing and so few recognizing and weaving them together as reflections of the process. So long ago, in a state of oneness and yet individuated, there was a sense of unanimity that I’ve sought to share my entire life. What I see now, some 40 years later, are those who also have such a notion that it exists and can be experienced in the physical world today.

Can we see with one eye? Can we feel with one heart? Can we think with one mind? Can we live as one on Earth? I believe the answer to each question is a resounding ‘YES’ and we all are contributing to that circuitous process. I also think we need to imagine ourselves as more than human, at least in the limited sense we seem to want to engage. Just my two sense. 😉

Creating a Lifetime

wiz1Creating a lifetime

Personal and professional plans require a lot of investigation, inner and outer, in order to craft them with some order. They can be small or large, depending on the person’s ability to create a vision for their life and/or work. Sometimes the two become one through creating deliberately. I’ve admittedly had a very large vision. I’m sure some might even believe it to be a bit incredulous.

I founded a company back in January of 1988 to encourage growth and maturation of business and spiritual principles into something beyond both. I hoped that someday Be The Dream would be synonymous with the ability to put people, places and things together with a capacity to change the world, facilitating harmony among people and planet as a result. I wrote the following for a class in my degree program at the University of Phoenix. Yes, I AM a PHOENIX!

Personal Leadership Development Plan

Instructor: Ted Szaniawski

Personal Leadership Development Plan

A visionary creates paradigm shifts in organizations as a change agent. Creating an organization and a plan to address systemic problems in how disenfranchised adults and youth are treated is a great challenge. Charismatic and transformative leadership styles empower a visionary to paint the picture that allows others to see the vision, embrace the mission, and achieve the goal. The environment of change affects the youth and the adults transform as a natural part of the process. Spectrum Academy is a practical beginning in creating a model community designed to engage mind, body, and spirit in a demonstration of holistic education; learning how to work together in new ways. These new ways include the development of sustainable living and working environments that produce future thinking individuals who contribute to the paradigm shift from competitive patterns to collaborative processes, which results in the demonstration of a better living awareness.

Brief Narrative & Overview of Plan

The condensed version of the Plan includes several areas of focus. Personal leadership development continues through a doctoral program, receiving funding for Spectrum Academy, building an empowered ‘Dream Team’ for Spectrum Academy and Genesis II, and webmeistery for the continued development of the Be The Dream web presence. Notoriety within the fields of education, youth treatment programs, and community development comes through persistent determination in delivery of results and networking throughout the spectrum of organizations that concern themselves with empowering youth and developing future sustainable communities.

Initial Do Diligence

Do diligence to date includes acquiring a Master of Business Administration focusing on business development and project management, secondary teaching certification through the University of Phoenix, and now completion of a Master of Arts in Organizational Management. Articles of Incorporation for Be The Dream, as a 501 (c) (3) corporation, are written and ready to submit. The intention is to use the organization to develop and implement strategies for paradigm shifts in the application of ecological, psycho-spiritual, and scientific technology through development of model communities that reflect the practice. Spectrum Academy’s business plan, as the initial project, needs final edit and revision using feedback from multiple sources.

Using the collective expertise and knowledge base of the partnership, marketing project and organizational consulting services fulfill the need to share and the passion felt toward personal involvement in the process of education and nurturing others. Contract work for various municipalities topcollegepapers.net, directly and through subcontracts, is sought currently. Further do diligence includes continued research and development of leadership qualities and an information data base of pertinent people and processes in the various industries associated with the target market. Organizing and obtaining a doctoral candidacy that develops the strategic and structural objectives of Spectrum Academy and the Genesis II communities, also on the agenda, begins after completion of the MAOM.

Web Presence and Presentation

Facilitation of this creation requires a state-of-the-art presentation package that features elements to address an array of audience preferences. A PowerPoint presentation, developed during the MAOM program, needs completion and test marketing, final edit and publishing as the next benchmark for Spectrum and Genesis II.

Website development helps the global recognition of leadership in collaborative alliance development. A monthly Be The Dream Newsletter, with approximately 300 readers, began in November, 2002. As a self-taught webmeister, continual website development fine tunes the message and resources available via the Web, utilizing a global audience. The month of September, 2003 marked the 2,000 visitor per month level, with roughly 12% return visitors. Just under 75% of the new visitors stay less than a minute.

The target market generally remains from 5 to over an hour, 6% of the visitors stay 5-15 minutes, 11% 2-5 minutes, and 3% longer than 15. The goal is to reach a 15% 5-15 minute stay, and/or increase visitors to 5,000 per month in the next 12 months. This is achieved through developing reciprocal link partners, search engine keyword marketing, submission to website search engine databases, and personal contacts through networking efforts.

Already a leader in some circles, it is important to establish credibility throughout the globe via the Internet, organizational, and personal references. Invitations exist to several gatherings and symposiums around the globe. Sponsorships are necessary to meet the financial requirements of travel and accommodations for these events. Proposals in development are marketed to specific organizations and philanthropists to acquire the necessary funding for two, as my partner, Robin Engel, is the official button pusher and co-presenter of the plan. Continual negotiations and resolutions are necessary in partnership, which is why the union of lifestyle and living empowers the personal and professional development required to be successful in this venture of vision, mission, insight, and magic.

Non-Profit Organization

Be The Dream, a soon to be 501 (c) (3) non profit corporation, serves as the foundation and organizational leadership for the development and expansion of Spectrum Academy and the Genesis II communities. Register initially in January, 1988, Be The Dream began as a small consultancy for ‘new age’ and metaphysically or spiritually oriented businesses and organizations. Adjusting to the growing needs of community development, addressing the disenfranchised youth first, is a natural evolution of the integrity, concern for accountability and responsibility, and proactive energy that drives the new living awareness of Culture Creatives and concerned planetary citizens. Making this process practical and pragmatic is a core competency of Be The Dream and its charismatic and transformational leadership team.

The launch of Be The Dream as a non-profit makes a larger scope of funding resources available to access. Grant writing skills, currently developing, forces the focus toward the simple and practical communication of vision, mission, and organizational plan for accomplishment. Further refining research into a well-crafted plan includes specific communication plans, financial projections and requirements, organizational goals, project plans, process and procedures to achieve the mission of the vision conceived by the Co-Directors of Be The Dream. Applying the skills set acquired to date is most challenging and exciting for the partnership, individually and collectively.

For Profit Directions

Part of the missing pieces of a better picture includes the bridging of non-profit and for profit worlds. Spectrum Academy, sponsored by the non-profit Be The Dream, includes three business units, a charter school, residential treatment center, and community technology center. Intrinsic to the nature of education and treatment, the non-profit status is important. These institutions do not produce revenue; they prepare the way for productive citizenry. The CTC, however, is expanded to include a data center for collection, storage, and distribution of various educational software packages normally overwhelming the cost of education in charter schools, community colleges, and correctional institutions.

Acquiring authorized site licensing from software authors and development companies greatly reduces the costs to the Association of Charter Schools, in Arizona and across the U.S., through the intranet access capacity. The win/win is created with the producers/manufacturers of the products through a percentage of revenue being shared with each, increasing their potential customer base as well. The projected revenues from this venture support the charter school and residential treatment program.

Meeting the above demands requires continual professional development and understanding in information technology systems, resource integration methodologies, and mastery of business administration and organizational development skills. Educationally, the MBA and MAOM degrees help integrate experiential and theoretical models. The background and education to date empowers exploring new territory in the functional development of youth and adult relationships, academic and treatment programs, and business unit creation for community advancement. Further use of systems-thinking, learning organization, and supply chain management theories help to create a deeper sense of solidity as the organization develops. This opportunity presents a variety of virtuous endeavors that will attract many and require the best of management practices to be used by the leadership.

Industry Notoriety

Increasing notoriety establishes a greater ability to connect the dots of collaborative alliances throughout the immediate area, in regard to Spectrum Academy, and globally in regard to the evolution of Genesis II. Published authors/academians seem to garner the most attention through industry symposiums, etc. Establishment in any arena generally requires a Ph.D. level academic tenure as well as 15 to 20 years in the field. The time in the field prepares the way for practical dissertations, problem-solving, and rooting oneself in the industry, or industries as the case may be. In this new millennium, there are seeming voluminous requirements to meet.

To begin the doctoral program search is the next professional development step. There are several options to this journey. The best for this writer includes the ability to design a program that fits the high-level organizational view while crafting the front-line approach to actualizing the vision of Be The Dream, Spectrum Academy, and Genesis II. Integrating education, community development, treatment systems, and leadership philosophies into a single program is a must. Writing this process is a monumental task and worthy of the doctoral plunge. The Web presence being developed benefits this process as well, with some invitations to speak at various events already received via this medium. The goal is to complete the doctoral program in 3 years, while traveling to speak at these various events to continue the networking of our plan and its benefits to society.

Conclusion

Setting realistic goals and objectives has been difficult to achieve since the first inclination of life purpose came as a teenager. As profound as the experience was, the practical path still had to be achieved in order to make [it] real. Nearly 30 years later, the dream is still alive and well in process toward manifestation in some very real ways. A natural charismatic and transformational leadership style embraces the changes people make while searching for their own anchor in this world. This is also a natural part of the process the writer has engaged in his flair for change agentry, creating a personal and professional plan to pummel the paradigm paralysis regarding disenfranchised youth and adults. Our world is on the brink of massive change and this one has a passion for being on the front line. The challenge is to always be vigilant of the vividness that can be created through communication and openness of purpose, which shows up as the vision and mission of the organizational development for Be The Dream, Spectrum Academy, and Genesis II.

Update

After nearly a decade and a half, many things have changed and transformed, but the basic plan is still under way. Since that time, I’ve had the opportunity and accepted the challenge of compiling and presenting several other avenues for expanding and supporting the original plan for creating a movement toward harmony among people and planet through becoming a possibilities coagulator, putting people, places and things together both in reality and virtually, providing some foundation and models for future developments. The following chart illustrations the activity in rough form.

Now that Social Media has entered the fray, the opportunities and perturbations continue to manifest nearly beyond my ability to keep up with them. The new methods for communicating across the world and into individual environments are daunting as well as magnificent. I only hope that some assemblage of folks begins to take place soon or I’m really going to have to learn how to clone myself or go on a couple hours sleep a night.

New Era

Bernie-middle classEntering a New Era

We hear of a new age of enlightenment, a new era of environmental and social responsibility. How is it happening? It certainly appears that the folks who should be leading the way are not. But why?

We could point fingers at many who don’t want to play nice and practice the ‘golden rule’ as this nation supposedly was established to do. Would that solve the problems? It sure would make us feel better, venting our rage at those who we put in office to do the right thing… right? I think we have a failure to communicate what that really is now.

So, what are the possibilities the folks like Bernie Sanders are introducing for the innumerable time? We’ve heard the same rhetoric for decades. That’s not to say what those folks are presenting isn’t necessary. We’ve just heard it all before and nothing has been done. Our economy tanked a few short years ago, again, and big business seems to be running the show even more now.

Okay, just a bit of finger pointing to make sense common as an example. Companies like Monsanto (easy pick because they are front and center) are being banned in other countries because of their practices, yet still report record profits that the pay very little tax, if any, on here at home. They even have temporary immunity from any backlash from their GMO (genetically modified organism) or GE (genetically engineered) products.

People, places and things are shuffled around with light speed, or so we think, in order to fend off or prepare for the restoration of America. There seems to be almost a moss panic swirling in the undercurrent of the political machine, especially with the next election coming up and candidates preparing to launch campaigns. Clean elections are a misnomer as he/she with the most backing and air time most often wins. Obama seemed to have a good attitude and message going in, transparency, and it sure has brought things to light. However, his tenure as Chief may not have had the hopeful results.

The reality is most of us have no idea what it is like to function at that level, nor do we really want to, yet we sure can abstain or complain when things don’t go how we think they should. What can we do about that? Well, we can get involved. Most folks avoid politics because it’s been labeled a ‘dirty business’ in the hearts of most Americans. We can extrapolate that from the lack of participation and the comments around the water cooler. Can we change that attitude? Perhaps, but is going to take a massive metanoia – change of mind.

We can start by just simply doing the right things locally, getting involved with the communities in which we live. Sure, it will take time away from some of the things we  currently do… or maybe it might just give Socratesus something to do instead of ‘chillin’ out’ after work or getting mesmerized by the newest video games or reality TV shows. Oh, I understand we work hard and deserve to have our free time. Where has that gotten us? That’s a lot of ego, eh? Why not turn ego to wego… together we can facilitate the change we desire. Like Gandhi said, ‘Be the change you wish to see in the world.’

Now, I’m not professing we get all religious or spiritual. That hasn’t really worked either now, has it? What I am suggesting is the we consider stepping out of the house and getting to know what is going on in the neighborhood. Is it a beautiful day in the neighborhood? If it isn’t, then what do you see can be done to make it so? Perhaps that is a good place for you to start. What you see needs to be done might be the perfect thing for you to do. Maybe others see the same thing and the agreement you’ve reached, of _____ needing to be done and you’ve decided to do something about it, is what will inspire others to get involved.

We can start small, with what is right in front of our faces. A small group of people with a common agenda, goals and objectives can get things done in magnificent and often larger than life ways. What have you got to lose? Oh, I know…. We’ve got liabilities, limitations and excuses to lose. That’s what happens to challenge when it becomes change.

Rolling Out Change

angeltrumpets2Rolling Out Change

In contemplating the roll out of a change in the organizational structure of a country there are some very simple, albeit challenging, processes involved. Traditionally movements stem from an individual or small collective of dedicated individuals. Today, many are capable and willing to initiate change themselves. Across the country, small groups of people are gathering to share their skillsets as they collaborate toward building better communities and eventually a nation, perhaps even a world.

As a strategist with a background in project and organizational management, I’ve had a passion and penchant for putting people, places and things together to do some pretty cool stuff. I’ve had some success in a variety of industries: aerospace; building, road and bridge construction; education; entertainment; special events and more. I’ve found happy people with the right tools and training get more done with less supervision.

I’m going to dive in to talking about the nuts and bolts of progressive change management. From an organizational standpoint, it takes clusters or groups of dedicated individuals strewn across the country with a focus on collaborative processes and results. Those clusters or nodes are connected through a network, whether intranet or internet, and able to access profiles, portfolios and projects that combine co-working, complementary skillsets and even incubator-type environments. I created a co-working and incubator space rationale with statistics for a municipality and you can find it here.

As diverse as the playing field may be, like the 12-sector co-creation wheel used by the Humanity’s Team and Thrive organizations, the capacity for organizing local groups rests in the self-initiated, those who are driven to find, facilitate and support practical mysticism in their local communities. I say ‘practical mysticism’ because the process embraces awareness, conscious behaviors within community action. The experience is sometimes akin to the ‘Law of Attraction’ on steroids as people, places and things seem to magically appear to those who are actively and selflessly serving the cause.

To date there have been numerous online and on-ground communities that have been attempting to gather like-minded folks together, but the obvious self-centered activity seems to be driving the bus. The notion of leadership seems to be stuck in last century ideas of competition, control and submission. Heretics are still not tolerated when the status quo needs the bar raised or their heart-drives upgraded. Every question needs to be better than the last and they all have answers that guide progress, some of them ripping apart the operating system in place.

I coined a term over a decade ago that seemed perfect in relationship to describing the ultimate structure of project management: jobarchy – the job is the boss and everyone wins. Personal andchange management hidden agendas have no place in the process and impede progress. There is no Ego without WEgo in such instances as the progress occurs at the speed of surrender to it. The synergy of best practices across multiple platforms is facilitated by leaders who practice this understanding, ultimately being able to combine authority and conviction that guides by example.

Result in Action

What we are ultimately seeking to do is facilitate a change in the power structure of our country, putting the people back in the picture instead of the corporatocracy and profit-driven agendas. How we do that is up to each one of us and our willingness to step up to the challenge. Fearlessness in the face of challenge is a key factor; not that we ignore the potential risks, but we develop plans and strategies that eliminate the potential risk by making them so profoundly logical that the sense made common naturally removes all concerns. That takes a lot of preparation, applying knowledge and understanding of the hard and soft skills of organizational management.

On a practical political no-nonsense level, the results are driven by developing support for those who (by their demonstration) have proven moral and ethical behavior beyond question in their communities. These proven vetted leaders, provided they are willing, are perfect to place in political positions in order to guide their communities and engage their constituents in making better decisions. Cash is no longer king… data is divine. Research and technology are key components of creating consistent and clear communication that can be shared across intelligence levels… making sense even more common.

Now we’re faced with creating the impetus for people to get involved; get out of their homes and join in the process. Festivals have long been a community favorite and draw folks out for the opportunity for fun and enjoyment of a variety of activities, education and entertainment… edutainment if you will. Festivals of all kinds have been a part of our lives for as long as I can remember. Well-crafted and strategically planned events can and do provide opportunities for the collection of data and interested individuals for further engagement.

Whether or not the strategy for change is implemented on a large scale remains to be seen. For now, just the explanation of it seeds the thoughtmosphere for those who might feel attracted to such a purpose. I’m well aware that some concepts and possibilities are ahead of their time, yet over time they find their way into the world and become amazingly effective. Perhaps this can be so for our country and world eventually. Sense made common includes the move toward harmony among people and planet.

Authority and Conviction

Zen-Sophia-teaAuthority and Conviction

This paper was extemporaneous in response to a call for papers in a leadership class at the University of Phoenix. Authority and conviction encompasses authenticity, commitment, ethical standards, honesty, leadership and a host of complementary character compliances.

The Attention Getter

For some reason I asked for viral meningitis back in the mid 80s. At the time I was in the midst of trying circumstances and questioned the very nature of behavior beyond words of commitment and loyalty; the trust we seek in relationships and life. At least choosing the illness is what a progressive self-initiating viewpoint might offer. I was in a very conflicting and difficult internal place dealing with a job that meant working with airborne weapons –  helicopters, fighter jets and missiles for the Department of Defense.

I was also feeling like there was no support in my marriage because instead of counseling or therapy, my wife chose to follow the pattern her mother set… involve other men. I was especially conflicted because we had just completed a spiritually-focused process in our church, too, resulting in eternal commitments that I took quite seriously. So I created a time for me to take stock in my own life’s mission and purpose once again. The analysis of authority and conviction brings varying opinions. I took it to new depths.

I spent several weeks flat on my back with a headache so bad that I wished I could make my transition and free myself of the pain and turmoil. It was not meant to be and I learned to go much deeper into my own being and nature to find the place of peace within. It did not change what was happening on the outside. It sure gave me some clarity on the inside, though. I began to recognize how I had set up my own cognitive dissonance. The culmination of the current dilemmas produced the proverbial ‘time out’ that I had to take due to the fact that I could barely open my eyes because of the pain from the light, even in a darkened room. What does that say about the metaphor of keeping your light under a basket?

Occasionally I have to remind myself of the wonderfully nasty headaches when I get too focused on the mundane and my mind wants too much control over processes that are not controllable or in my best interests. Even understanding the amazing ability to choose what you experience, sometimes we have to be reminded to stop, listen and look around. As I paused by our pond recently, a couple of decades later, in a moment of contemplation attempting to move through my headache, I heard a cicada for the first time this year. It seems a bit early for them here. Maybe I’m just not noticing time the way I used to; seeming to move much faster as I get older.

As I just relaxed and released to its song I felt a deep sense of gratitude. My headache subsided as my mind responded to the stillness. The song of the cicada reminded me of the ‘white noise’ that I’ve found many hear. I’ve used this ‘noise’ to help me meditate as focusing on it without ‘trying’ to listen often decreases its pitch and leads to some very interesting places in consciousness. In this ‘pause for the cause’ I was gifted with the following stream of consciousness. A natural desire for argument may cross your mind as you read. However, I would ask that you read with an open mind and heart as much as possible.

The Inner Stream

One who truly speaks with authority does so because they HAVE IT. It is a part of them, often beyond the scope of their own knowing, exuding from their presence even as a young person. When in positions of power and public view, leaders who speak with authority can be heard not only with the head; the heart responds as well. Their words are FELT in the depths of one’s BEING. Everyone has felt the difference at some point in their lives, whether verbally acknowledged or simply logged in their own consciousness. Consider the difference when you are looking for people to work with on a personal or professional basis.

One does not need an office or position to speak with authority of the heart. There are many who weather the storm of personal, political, or professional resistance to authenticity, honesty, and integrity of our natural desire to bond with one another. We’ve been duped into believing that duality is a natural state of being when in fact, non-duality is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient. Science is even proving the notion of an anthropic universe [life-friendly] through quantum physics and complexology, a new field of study that uses a holistic approach to understanding our physical world. Holistic philosophy, aka spirituality, maintains that all things are connected. So we have no excuse for not being responsible for the affects of our actions and thoughts.

One who speaks with unauthentic conviction, not having ‘authority’, is convicted almost before they begin… of many false beliefs because of the lack of FEELING. It is noticeable in the lack of resonance in one’s depths and audiences recognize it as well, or at least some do. Emotional manipulation is easy with these types as their mission is to intimidate (covertly and subtly) the actions of the audience toward their own personal agenda or bias. There is often a ‘hidden’ agenda behind this type of presentation. The awareness in our own feeling without emotional attachment is intuitively how we know, or feel, we can trust someone.

The feeling is undeniable and the lack of it irrefutable when one relies on the heart-felt resonance of vibration, whether uttered from the mouth or displayed in print through one’s words doesn’t matter, it is in their energy field for those who have the ability to feel. That would be everyone for those of you wanting to feel separate from your own power now. It appears that our ability to act as citizens prompted by this authentic presence and natural desire to be friendly and loving toward others has been depressed and even subverted by those who speak with a lack of authentic conviction, meaning their agendas do not support life or love, even though they may say all the right words to make the willing believers (our natural state is trust) feel safe. In fact, many have become so desensitized by the rapid-fire information age that this natural internal state of discernment and recognition has been lost.

Critical self-reflection as we listen to or read our own words is always happening within the truth circuits of our naturally oriented love consciousness, which resides in truth. “As I speak, therefore I AM” to paraphrase a wise one. We have the ability to be Self-monitoring in alignment with Divine Flow within us at ALL TIMES. We choose to remove ourselves from it. It is that simple. All the kingdoms sing praise when you can stop and listen to their song. Our natural state is one of love and surrender, faith and trust. This can also swell into a torrent of energy, commanding resonance in ALL THAT IS when we focus on the awareness of Oneness, non-duality thinking.

We might call this the ‘War in Righteousness’ that is beyond any ONE person yet is encompassed by ALL. It is a sense of serenity that, paradoxically, disrupts anything that is out of alignment with itself, humans being the most obvious example at this time. Humans have in turn, affected their very survival by infecting the Earth with their selfish acts backed by evil intent. btw… this is not the work of some EVIL ONE. This was the choice of individuals who then drew together to support one another. See what they/we have done? In the formality of non-dualistic thinking, us and them become ‘we’ and there is no ego without ‘wego’ in the sense of our collective responsibility. Without pointing fingers, we can acknowledge that life as we know it can get much better and we have the methods and technology to affect change toward a more holistic local, national, and global renaissance of simply looking out for one another instead of destroying ourselves and our environment.

Now imagine what we could do with the same, or even greater, concerted effort in calling for authentic authority and responsible action. Imagine what pure motives and unselfish behavior could do to turn the tide of desire, desolation, and destruction. We often resist the religious or spiritual messages that promote our divine unity and brother/sisterhood of spirit across the sand-drawn boundaries of cultures and ethnic distinctions. Recent scientific discoveries in tracking genetic lineage shows that we are all related, so why are we not able to act as a family? Serendipitously, I had an experience when first contemplating the depth of my connection just after going through a rather disheartening divorce. Being adopted with no results of research for lineage, I have an over-riding “Who Am I?” question that is a precursor to action of any depth in nature.

Inquiring Even Further

One early morning shortly after midnight in June of ’88 I asked the question internally and was answered externally by an elder friend setting next to me. We had been talking about other matters earlier so his verbal outburst would have made little or no sense had I not just asked the question. His words were, “You are Zendor!” in a rather loud and authoritative voice. He was not a ‘channeler’ or psychic that I was aware. Still, out it came.

As it did, my second sight turned on and the video screen showed a starscape and stone-arched huge wooden castle door in the center, slowly opening outward toward me. I laughed as I head the phrase, “door to what is” echo in my head as I watched the scene silently. What a piece of work! I was in awe for years…still am during these moments of reflection and writing. It makes me realize how small I am in the great generosity of God. Still, what the heck do you do with experiences like this?

Now I’m going to take it to another level, so remember that I asked for an open mind and heart as you read further. I’m not asking you to believe a thing that I write. Many believe that we came from somewhere else initially and have been watched for millennia by our predecessors or progenitors. Much like the Star Trek Prime Directive, in order for our ancestry (forefathers, space families, or whatever you wish to call them) to engage actively with our Earth, logic would seem to dictate that we must first meet some requirements mandated for developing civilizations before they can be taken into any Confederation of Planets or Galactic Federation of any kind.

Looming Questions

I’d say that makes good sense, wouldn’t you? Barbarians on the loose in space just doesn’t sound like a good idea now does it? So what must happen? What are their requirements? What do we need to do if there is some ‘event’ looming in our near future? What exactly could it be? Is it truly conceivable that a whole planet could be wiped out? Would it be possible to avoid it? What does this ‘end of time’ scenario really mean? What can we demonstrate of our knowledge and wisdom to date? What does the scientific evidence, empirical and unemotional, give indication toward possible outcomes?

As I understand it TRUTH is pure, intuitive, logical thought which then translates into a multitude of sensations within the mind/body/spirit complex of the SOUL. Where does it all lead? Do we really have a choice in the matter, or is it simply an imminent program poised in the cosmic computer queue ready to self-correct? Hmmmm…. Imagine that… on all levels of our known existence and more. Resources that are currently allocated to less-than-friendly actions need to be redistributed to life-friendly causes, eh? And what of the effect of thought on our personal experience or our environment?

Love is said to be the true foundation of the Galactic Federation or Confederation of Planets, and the mission of the Ashtar Command as many are finding in their search for extraterrestrial assistance in the face of non-conformity of life-friendly international actions on the planet’s surface now. Quite a number would probably find the idea of such an organization totally coming from fantasy land. Maybe it does. Truth is often stranger than fiction. To some, just the opposite is true as well. To those of the latter mindset the agenda of the Ashtar Command makes perfect sense and they live in quiet support of it.

It’s been said that the ultimate understanding from studying the world religions is to move beyond the separative notions within them. Divine mysteries are too big for one religion. Perhaps the unity in diversity concept for organizational management could also fit into that category. Through study and understanding of the various belief systems and cultural differences there can be a peace, or at least working relationship, from finding and focusing on what makes us all the same. Good leaders focus on common elements and, in fact, make sense common to their rank and file through their efforts of demonstrating by example. Actions speak louder than words. We learned that as children.

So much has been happening to a certain portion of the planetary population that cause for concern, possibly consideration, is noteworthy in the expansion of our knowledge base in the information age. Those who feel some level of participation in the AC’s precepts sense a greater connectivity to cosmic cooperation and even cosmic consciousness – awareness of non-duality thinking and living. In most circles who are aware or feel involved, the AC is known for its Divinely-driven spiritual and material union for the benefit of all mankind, like a self-correcting program. It could be said that we are that self-correcting program that is now operational and seeking to serve humanity in a most profound and prophetic way.

What Can We Do?

As with any vision, someone has to see it, hold it, and share it without fear of repercussion in order to bring it into manifestation. It has to anchor into the consciousness of ONE first, and that ONE may be thousands in body, before it can manifest ubiquitously amongst humanity. This is what has to be realized as a collective organization before anything can proceed. Each one has assigned duties. I know this because I remember the meetings on board (conscious and participating in the process), while many others were in a dream state, unable to recall upon awakening yet having a faint remembrance. Some remember bits and pieces of such encounters and ignore them as some manifestation of archetypal imagery being addressed in the psyche.

The mental health professionals have been perplexed for decades regarding these experiences and stories of questionable validity for lack of proof. Still others have full memories of these experiences that are beyond the ‘normal’ scope of dreamtime. Indigenous elders have shared that we can affect and are affected by our dreamtime work. One set of these meetings, for me, lasted for nearly a week in February, 2001. Some of you may begin recalling them as you are reading these words. That means its working, beyond your belief, and you remember the EXPERIENCE. Now here’s the kicker… do you actually remember or do you WANT to have been there so bad that you create a memory of it? Just relax… all things will be revealed in time.

Others of you may want to totally disregard this paragraph. I’ve been called many things for my authentic expressions and questions of ‘reality;’ most of them not so nice. Many so-called Christians have thought me to be white-washed on the outside and full of Satan on the inside. I realize it is nothing personal – concepts and ideas are the triggers and I’m just a guy writing about his contemplations and ponderances of life’s offerings. I have to admit that I often have sincere doubts until I run into someone that says they met me on board or saw me in a dream or heard about me some other way. Not too many folks are willing to talk openly about inner things yet.

Now that this door has opened for you, if indeed it has, it will take a bit of time for the memories to surface, or not, to the point of actually performing your assigned duties if you have them – divinely orchestrated and perfect just for you. Truly.. I’m not sure everyone has a ‘mission’ of this type. There seems to be a natural hierarchy of order within this process, like the organizational structure of a large corporation. The premise is that we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form, becoming aware of the fact as we perceive our unity within diversity, the oneness of all things.

If this seems like total fabrication and science fiction, then it probably isn’t for you or maybe it is in you imagination at least. This process is beyond any one of my wildest dreams and possibly the culmination of all of them. Its magnitude and potential for success is beyond belief, yet very real as the potential of conscious activity proven by quantum physics and doctoral level metaphysicians continues to grow. Literally it is appearing as through a mandate of Creators’, so to speak, being a natural process for our planet and people at this juncture in the development of our specie.

For those that have the eyes to see and the ears to hear, my words may resonate with some authority, not because I wish to lead; because you are inextricably part of the process, too. No ONE of us is any better than another. Each has their role, and like the corporate hierarchy, each role is just as important to the achievement of the goals and objectives. To the rest of you it may just sound like it makes sense, but you have your doubts or you may feel like you are someone specially sanctioned to deliver a message. I think I got over the messianic complex long ago, even though it still rears its little head occasionally in my feeling world.

Those who resonate with this kind of experience know the plan is about representing a collective soul of sorts, the Christ Consciousness (Cosmic Consciousness) based in love and natural order of creation, beyond heretofore ‘human’ understanding, which becomes the outpicturing of faith and trust. This is how Creator will dwell with Man, in my opinion. There is still much more as we are indeed sons and daughters of this Creator, Source, the ONE or whatever your word is in your region of the world. Of course the original texts refer to Creator in the plural. The three suns I was shown over a decade ago may hold the key. What could that mean? That would mean ancestry that bridges quantum physics and religion.

We intuitively know of the ONE deep within us, yet there are many aspects that evolve in and around us. We’ve been collectively unaware of anything in between the dots we’ve connected. It has been referred to as the ‘dark matter’ that exists between particles of light, such as the proton, neutron, and electron. Imagine that! The current rapidly dwindling mindset would have you believe that there is a huge chasm between us and our Creator with little to no hope of ever reaching the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. Would that ancestry reside in what we call Heaven? What really is Heaven? What about bringing it to Earth?

Could Creator exist in the ‘space’ between the dots so that as we reconnect them, re-link our natural state, Creator’s presence is unmistakably present. Religion, after all, means reunion with Creator. Quantum physics is proving the theory mathematically. I say we can prove it physically with a trance-end-dance of dualistic consciousness and movement toward the natural harmony of the mind and heart. This seems to be happening beyond any personal opinions to the contrary. Would that ancestry maybe be connected to a few already? Hmmmm….

Beyond any appearance of self-absorbed or arrogant behavior, my intentions have always been to be submissive to possibility, faith and trust in a new world order of holistic proportions that fully demonstrates what we have been calling LOVE. Supposedly this is what everything is… limitless oscillating vibrational energy… LOVE. We’ve known for some time now, through scientific discovery, that everything has a vibration – from dis-ease to the purest light. Knowing that as my knowledge grows my ignorance often exponentiates, I approach every situation with an open mind and heart. I encourage you to approach your every day lives in the same manner.

I know that in that genuine openness, vulnerability and the innocence of a child, which equates to faith and trust is the ultimate protection from any harm. Every religion speaks to this point. I’m not asking you to believe any of this. Your own experience will either confirm or deny these things for you. At least it makes for a good story and could potentially have an awesome conclusion. The truth is, for me at least, that I’m still unraveling the enigma, the cosmic conundrum of ‘what does this all mean and what I am suppose to do?’

It is a very humbling experience I might add. I hope you’ve enjoyed the read.

Fibonacci Revisited

An old story seems to fit here. Jesus saw infants being suckled. He said to His disciples, “These infants being suckled are like those who enter the Kingdom.” They said to Him, “Shall we then, as children, enter the Kingdom?” Jesus said to them, “When you make the two one, and when you make the inside like the outside and the outside like the inside, and the above like the below, and when you make the male and the female into a single one, so that the male not be male nor the female; and when you fashion eyes in the place of an eye, and a hand in place of a hand, and a foot in place of a foot, and an image in the place of an image; then will you enter [the Kingdom].”

Does this suggest that we truly are able to create our bodies? How? Sounds like a really interesting ‘spin’ on things, eh? Quantum discoveries allude to the possibility of our outer realities being an outpicturing of our internal belief systems. The incongruence in humanity’s behavior is simply a manifestation of false belief systems built over millennia. Time for a change? Is it possible we are cosmic consciousness condensed into form becoming aware of the fact?

With your permission I would like to share a few things about the development of cosmic physics, spindoctors of the new millennium, and personal experience. I hope that the structure of my writing and the vocabulary is understandable. I Am quite open to questions should the need arise. I may not have all the answers. I have experienced many modes of communication over the years, yet I find that expressing myself authentically resonates with the integrity of my heart.

Many messengers choose to use people who are open to channel and/or have a propensity for connecting with the etheric airwaves much like modern media outlets. They usually intend for you to believe them as undisputed truth. I ask that you not believe a thing I am about to present. Just read with an open mind and ask your own intelligence to reveal any truth.

Advances in quantum physics and spirituality are leading the way for humanity to discover just how connected things are in the holistic view on Planet Earth. Even new spiritual cinema producers are finding ways to display inner experiences on an external screen with animation that is quite close to the view from within. Discovering doorways or portals into other worlds happens quite naturally when one is open to it and has the right set of circumstances prevailing in the moment.

Spiritual paths converge as one finds their own Divine Blueprint unfolding in the blink of an eye, forever changing their lives and critical understanding of the Nature of Creation. Many find these openings and, not quite sure what to do, often never return because of the difficulty in bridging the worlds of experience that develop from further exploration. Sometimes it just seems so unreal that the mind, in its current state of confusion, is unable to relinquish control and inhibits further development. Balancing inner and outer realities is an age-old dilemma.

Spindoctors of a different sort…

merkanimaThe image on the right is a collection of mathematical computations using the Fibonacci sequence, arriving at a quite interesting graphic presentation. A discussion with a friend regarding the figure and about sacred geometry facilitated a most intriguing experience in meditation. We had been discussing the investigation of  the ‘X’ factor that modern alchemists are theorizing that, when discovered, will bridge worlds within the quantum and hyperdimensional physics, allowing humans to expand their awareness into other dimensions. Current information regarding ‘Merkaba Meditations’ also allude to this capacity. While contemplating our conversation just before meditating, I was reminded of some recent discoveries that may be of interest regarding inner portals and the bridging of worlds.

Much of this information has been present in many ancient texts and even some current pieces available on the Net. A simple keyword search will reveal much. There are ‘keys’ that allow the ‘seeker of truth,’ the ‘mystery school initiate’ or the ‘spiritual devotee’ to access more profound and simple truths in the organizational matrix of Creation. This access has been happening in unprecedented numbers within the last few years it appears.

Some, like myself, are particularly open to these experiences and are sharing what we find. It is not meant to wave a flag like someone with a messianic complex, yet these apparent evolutionary understandings are real. We’ve all been waiting for ‘something’ to begin happening. Let me diverge on a tangential congruency for a moment.

Our world is changing rapidly and people are recognizing the need for authenticity, honesty and integrity toward others. This factor alone promotes an attraction of ‘God drops’ or ‘insightful moments’ where many facts that have been collected suddenly have a ‘domino effect’ as the dots are connected in consciousness, where an instantaneous pulse of ‘light’ extends and contracts in all of a nanosecond. The affect is felt as a profound moment of connection beyond comprehension, a cognitive cohesion of congruent thoughts if you will, a peace that surpasseth understanding. Sometimes it feels like a short heart-pulse of such incredible depth that articulating the understanding could take years.

A short time ago I was astonished at the connections from a continent away with regard to this process. I’d been experimenting in these inner worlds for some years, not realizing that others had access, too, because I rarely encountered anyone, let alone consciously recognized them. Still, I could not deny what I knew and shared nor the reflection provided by the members of the RAHMA Mission group in Santiago, Chile. Part of me is astounded at the humble happening, a greater part is awed by the inspiration this experience offered others.

As you look at the figure above, an example of the ‘spin’ defined in the merkaba meditations mentioned previously, the obvious ‘star’ configuration appears in irrefutable magnificence, resonance and recapitulation of the sacred geometry of space/time. Consider that the points of the star are the exit and entrance of a single point of light moving though a ‘plane,’ an example of the ‘trinity’ appears like the proton, neutron, and electron, sublime and revealed in the spiritual quest for the cosmic conundrum: ‘Who Am I?’ and more importantly, ‘How Am I?’ Interestingly enough, I’d also been given another ‘Star of David’ with additional details over 20 years ago while standing in front of a precision grinding machine at an aerospace company…my day job.

All I did at the time was listen and follow subtle promptings of the ‘voice within’ that I had known for years and trusted implicitly. This image appeared to have many ancient symbols included in its design, somehow reflecting some deep-seated triggers to my own investigation of the nature of Creation and our designated purpose within it (the cosmic conundrum). Knowing oneself is the first step to finding one’s path. Researching this symbol, and its various sub-symbols has led to some phenomenal experiences and understanding, with the articulation of deeper developments still in process.

Moving along to the Torus…

Although a simple process, the explanation of a prescribed path to a merkaba activation meditation and inner experience can be challenging and difficult, at best. Moving inward with the flow of introspection for integration, we often feel the swirling flow engulf us as we journey the rainbow matrix. I began using a term called ‘egocentripidy’ some time ago as evidence of the necessary incorporation and integration of the ego, which many feel to be a deterrent to the mastery of self.

A naive perspective of Oneness would indicate that everything is included. A discussion of the Fibonacci sequence revealed an interesting correlation to the torus. Seems this serendipity spawned symbiotic samples on a variety of e-group lists in the summer/fall of 2001. At any rate, I trust it is helpful. I may not always be able to express in a language compatible with all, yet the gift of intelligence with a large vocabulary allows an interesting wordsmithing to the cosmic myth weaving process…

Using the example of Einstein’s torus below, imagine what a multi-dimensional folding in/out of these planes would engage in the realms of consciousness. Might it lead to a further recognition of a holistic view of living, complete with a natural urge to merge with our Creators?If you notice, the various numeric sequences produce patterns on the torus. There is another graph that demonstrates just how the numbers lay out on a single plane yet, as applied to this model, produce a series of interconnecting planes/dimensions/worlds. The nature of the torus is to be constantly turning in/folding out, so these ‘worlds’ are constantly being integrated or ‘shared’ as the torus activity continues.

Now, here is the mind-blower… we each have one of these in the center of our being, constantly in motion with pulses and spins of unimaginable magnitude. What is the result? What do you think? What do you feel? What do you do? What life unfolds? What living environment results when many experience this process? We increase our awareness of ‘what is’ and are therefore more capable of experiencing ‘unconditional love’ or ‘pure shareable energy’ in the process. It is as simple as a single breath in complete trust of All That Is.

When we breath, feel, and think from this point within our natural metaphysical makeup, our ability to perceive and our awareness of self and others is magnified beyond dogma and tradition. Walking with this ‘conceptual image’ looks much like the image below, put together as a complete sphere. It resembles the electromagnetic fields of the earth as well.I’ll borrow a piece from a friend to explain the ‘horn torus.’ The Horn Torus (nearly spherical torus with an infinitesimally small/wide center) Universe is often mistaken for being a sphere. All spheres in the universe share the connection to the center of this torus, including the ‘great sphere.’

The outside of the torus (the ‘outer bounds’ of the boundless infinite universe) is also the same surface as the center. Everything contained within the outer surface and the center is also in the center. This applies to the individual as well as the collective, like fractals of the ONE. We are all one, and all exist within that singularity of oneness. Higher vibrational existence will not mean we are abandoning physicality, or dense realities such as this one. What it will mean is that we can experience such realities without getting “stuck ” in them.

What’s really interesting is that we go through our lives with a fluidity of experience already, from one event to another. We carry emotional charges throughout our lives resulting from our experience. This example goes beyond the emotional bindings of the mental bias that we often create without realizing it. When one reaches a place of ‘unconditional love’ these emotional charges are nullified. Of course this is only an intellectual explanation of the process. Living in LOVE, what might be called Limitless Oscillating Vibrational Energy, is the greatest challenge of all humanity and the objective of all spiritual teachings. Somewhere along the way, our understanding of science and spirituality becomes congruent.

Fibonacci revisited…

rodinThe Fibonacci sequence is the mathematical expression of the fractal that apparently exists at the core of every natural order, including human DNA. The discovery of the ‘Golden Mean’ is the basis for one of he most profound mathematical postulations of history, the Pythagorean Theory. Researching this further on your own is highly recommended. This sequence also produces an array of symbols, including several variations of the 6-pointed hexagram, or star tetrahedron in 3d. Spiritual mathematicians or sacred geometrists have often talked about the ‘X’ factor that enables access to the other worlds on a fully conscious level.

In looking at one of the sequences of exploration, there is a pattern that, when drawn connecting specific points, reveals an open-ended square with an ‘X’ in the middle, hence I suppose, the ‘X’ factor. Not the type of thing you would figure from such a symmetrical sequence. Paradoxes abound in the quest for the cosmic conundrum. Interestingly enough, the ‘X’ becomes a swastika as it begins to spin. The swastika becomes the medicine wheel and both are ubiquitous in religious symbology. Again, when one looses the ‘charge’ associated with either image, a natural understanding unfolds quite organically.

When the number sequence is reversed it produces a ‘Z’ shape across the middle of the star. So far, this key to the door of our inner experience is more of a ‘Z’ factor. Could this fit with yet another paradox; looking deeper in the mirror and the journey down the proverbial rabbit hole? Musing as it is, one of my partner’s pet names for me is ‘Z-man’ as I seem to help her spin in/out when she meditates close to me physically.

A morning meditation just after the late-night/early-morning discussion revealed how it looked in 3d, with the upper and lower lines curved in opposite directions and the center line slightly curved as though it were representing a spinning ‘Z’, which is what the entrance to the portals resemble as  one looks down upon the ‘Z,’ which is not to say that we are superior beings. Imagine looking down a tube with a Z-shaped spiraled blade  (or S-shaped depending on the top of bottom view) spinning at varying speeds. I think you get the picture.

The ‘X’ factor is revealed when you consider going AND returning, the mirror images, or spins. It shows up as an ‘X’ or a swastika on a two-dimensional model. When viewed from an internal point of perspective one can literally watch as the implosion and explosion occurs simultaneously and in perfect harmony.This also ties into the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel that the Mayans spoke of and Jose Arguelles described could be seen above the ‘gathering places’ during the Harmonic Convergence in 1987. Most other cultures have similar descriptions of this imagery, whether in a positive or negative light indicates their inability to see things as ‘whole’ at the time.

Humans have always tended to separate their experience into polarities of fear and love, separation from and union with the Divine. To simply observe this imagery without criticism leads to freedom of the mind and alignment with heart. Sounds so simple doesn’t it? I saw the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel during a campout with my family the weekend of the Harmonic Convergence when I asked, “If God created us then who created God?,” and it appeared again during a group meditation with some friends before returning to Phoenix in the fall of 2001.

These friends asked if we could meditate to the music my band had produced as they felt incorporating our music would help facilitate the opening of these portals. The music fits the genres of ‘celestial rock’ or ‘progressive improv’ and I had used it for guided meditations and hypnotherapy sessions in the past. What we experienced was nothing short of amazing.This image also seems to be reflected in the spiraled helix of our DNA, only minus one cross-member, simplified to some extent.

What if you included the yin/yang as a two-dimensional version of a cross-section of DNA, with the energy movements of ‘on and off’ represented by black and white? By that I mean when one looks at a top-down black and white view of pulsing energy through the DNA helix, the TAO appears. This is another indicator of the spindoctoring of  internal understanding [innate knowing] of the truth of our creation that is within our own being as evidence of ‘How We Are,’ not just ‘Who We Are.’

The etheric empiricists [channels of pseudo-science] cite tens to thousands of ‘additional strands’ through some cosmically controlled ascension of planet Earth to offer some validity of the expansion of consciousness as part of a Master Plan. I cannot speak to the intricacies of our genetic material. However, the appearance of this pattern [Golden Mean] would indicate that there is correlation in all forms in creation, or at least what we can recognize so far. This seems to be making us one big family, eh?

What the relevance may be now is that as we move in and out of various worlds, or even aboard ship (apparently there is a large group who experience individual and collective trips), this pattern is recognizable in the movements throughout the rainbow highways of the Universe available to the spiritual experiencer/seeker. As a result of an amazing increase of spiritual initiates, we are beginning to see the fallacy in putting our trust in the things of this world and those who manage them.

Personal gain has not relinquished its hold on the human psyche just yet. It just doesn’t appear that the right dots are being connected for the benefit of humanity and world leaders appear helpless in the shadow of corporate expansion. Now this might seem an incongruence in the discussion so far. What of the person that is so spiritual that they are no earthly good? It only seems appropriate that our growth in understanding and wisdom of who and how we are would lead us to better collaboration in worldly affairs.

Many are beginning to traverse the intradimensional pathways, encountering some difficulty with the sensations of letting go of the physical form in order to journey. Perhaps the foreknowledge of some of the visuals will make the transitions flow more easily. My sense is that we are already familiar with these pathways from dreamtime. Still as just mentioned, our quest is not about leaving the physical form. Our evolutionary pattern seems to point to the integration of our physical form into a greater experience, where we have the opportunity to live in many mansions simultaneously.

The more we realize these things, and that transcendence often happens in nanoseconds [speed of thought], the more capacity we have to act in the now. The present moment contains the connective dots of past and future views, generations of possibility, and allows us to make better choices in the management of our day-to-day activity. The human race is not simply going to go ‘poof’ into some perfect state of existence, in my humble opinion. The reality is that it is going to take inner and outer activity to match the needs of our whole being, which just happens to be anchored in these physical bodies now, yet obviously goes way beyond them.

An Application of the Z-factor

zmatrixCosmologically our planetary vibration is increasing subtly as we move into new areas of space that some refer to as the Photon Belt, possibly corresponding to the move into the ‘Aquarian Age.’ This also corresponds to an increase in subtle energy vibrations that permeate our feeling worlds. Subtle vibrations are the magnificent manifestations of conscious energy, our own and our Creators’. Now, as vibratory levels have been on the rise, the experiences of ‘inner awareness’ are becoming more prevalent in waking states of consciousness, often facilitated with music and/or other catalysts yet not necessary as meditation alone offers access to these realms.

Strangely enough this also corresponds to an experience I had a decade before, where I was apparently selected for an ‘abduction’ by non-human intelligence which really wasn’t an abduction at all. I learned that their technology is being used to subtly adjust the vibratory rates of certain humans to make it easier to communicate with them. Concurrently, this action also promotes a greater sensitivity within those same humans. Hundreds, if not thousands, of these cases exist but have not been understood to this depth. We’re only scratching the surface of understanding the timeline of ‘soular’ evolution in my opinion.

Regular journeying through meditation seems to remove the fears and emotional disturbances as well, although it doesn’t seem to do too much for daily routines of procrastination or global domination yet. Maybe it has something to do with that eye of the needle thing. The visual pattern is also reminiscent of the merkaba craft generation which is known to facilitate inter- and intrastellar (inside) travel among certain groups of space cadets. This may be helpful in creating better ship to shore communications and travel. I’d recommend at least exploring the merkaba craft generation link.

Let’s look at a direct application of these theorems. This experience provided all participants entrance into realms within consciousness that we rarely explore. These areas are available through what some call the ‘activation of the merkaba’ and using this ‘ship’ as a vehicle. Let me explain what it looked like as our higher selves ‘visioneered’ the process. We all held hands and offered a prayer of unity and protection as we began our internal journey. As the music progressed (first tune was what you are listening to now) I began to ‘vision’ three tubes of light connecting the opposite points of the six-pointed star commonly identified as the Star of David.

These tubes of light had energy flowing in opposite directions simultaneously within them. As they began to increase in flow, the tubes split and began rotating with the points of the star as axis points. The spin became so fast that it became a sphere around us, gradually spreading out into the shape of a saucer-type craft. Crafty as it was, the natural expansion of the light was intense. The edges reached to the edge of the visible horizon within my scope of vision.

At this point, in the center of our circle, there became visible two rotating swastikas. One was moving clockwise, the other counter-clockwise, with trailing edges making it look the Mayan perspective of the rotating feathered serpent medicine wheel. The spinning increased and began to pulse images of each simultaneously upward and downward into infinity. As the rotation continued, the two began to oscillate inward and outward in mirror-like fashion. As one would move outward, the other would move inward and then reverse. The whole thing looked like a transporter beam from Star Trek, with rainbow sparkled filaments throughout the entire movement of the wheels.

As this was taking place, I began to see images like those that Dan Winter had presented in his video presentations of the Fibonacci sequence and its relationship with the Golden Mean (.618) which is how the Pyramids in Egypt are arranged reflecting the mathematical spiral of the expression of the Golden Mean’s graphic form. The image, though, was actually of the vortex representing the compression, or implosion, of pure sharable energy through the center of our hearts. Many waveforms ‘nest’ within each other as this process takes place with each heartbeat that is aligned with pure shareable energy… that which is in alignment with Natural Order of Creation.

Our understanding of chaos flows into natural order as well as we tame the beast (mind) within us all. There is an interesting reference to the word ‘satan’ that indicates the word came from the Greek ‘thetan’ and actually means ‘thinker.’ Some smart fellow thought it would be convenient with a nearly illiterate public to supplant ‘thetan’ with ‘satan’ in order to confabulate early religious teachings. The result enabled Constantine to effectively include all the pagan nuances in the newly constructed religious text so populations could be controlled. It was the first marriage of church and state… but I digress.

This vortex looks like two cones that are connected by the tops and appear like an hourglass form with the top and bottom fanning out like a megaphone. Yet, once inside it takes on seeming infinite dimensions with all the rainbow-sparkled movement of fluid light tails. These waveforms were visible as they came into the center of the group, through the center, and releasing again on the other side. It is well known that our ascension process is primarily related to aligning with the pure energy of Creation in our bio-spiritual evolutionary pathway. Even within the point of light at the center of our Heart of Hearts, there is a doorway into the Void, also known as a Black Hole is cosmological terms.

This is our connection with the ONE, from whence all Creation manifests through light and sound. From this place we can see infinitely inward and infinitely outward simultaneously. The place of no beginning and no ending. The image below offers some resemblance.When the tape reached the end of the first side I reflected on what I had scene and thought that it would be beneficial to ask the others what their experience was before saying a word about mine. Often, we do not reflect with each other what our internal experiences are with meditative environments. Granted, the Ascended Masters have often said, ‘to know, to dare, to do, and to be silent.’

Well, this was because the experiences were so rare that when one would share, the energy would be disbursed by the disbelief of others. In this case, and others, we were paracelestparticipating in openness and devotion to the ONE. It felt appropriate to ask the others to share from that perspective. Although the language used (descriptive terms) was somewhat varied, the experience was definitely shared by all of us. I’ve been able to facilitate other group experiences with larger groups as well, using our music. The descriptions of the participants have been phenomenal to say the least. Oh, yes… I forgot to mention the music was created by Outcasts and Social Misfits, the guys I’ve played music with for over a decade. Here’s the CD that was eventually published.

The prevalent experience of the second side of the tape that we all related was of unfolding into winged creatures. The others saw themselves as Angels who gently surrounded the group with their wings as a sign of love and nurturing to one another. I, on the other hand, made the same gesture, yet I saw myself as a white dragon. I’ve been shown the reality of this in too many ways to mention here. Still, I’m just a human being with way too much outside the boxness to fit into many situations and ‘normal’ environments.

So, I tend to express myself with no regrets or thoughts of repercussions, acknowledging letting go of attachment to outcome. Granted, if I were in somebody else’s shoes, I’d probably have some major difficulties with my ‘story’ and potential benefit.The TRUTH IS LOVE… and waging war in righteousness is in process. This does not mean violence toward my fellowman. Just the opposite. We are being aligned now in order to take our rightful place among the Cosmic Order of Creation. This includes many worlds already, as we might view our visible light spectrum as one of these worlds, there are others visible through our inner sight.

In time, these will also be as visible as our current realm. Currently, our youth are already sensing these realms, causing major boredom in classrooms and aberrant behavior due to our lack of understanding this and providing them with relevant educational processes. We drug these same children to put the back into the ‘box’ that we’ve allowed ourselves to be contained in when they [children] were never meant to be in it in the first place. They have far more sensitivity and understanding of connectedness than most adults, yet we fail them miserably because we do not pay attention to their messages to us, consequently they become ‘labeled’ and put into various ‘programs’ to rehabilitate. Some just exit the ‘system’ altogether.

In Arizona alone, just last year, over 50% of the youth detained by police where NOT enrolled in school. The fact is- we have not habilitated them to begin with, nor ourselves for that matter. We need some methods to teach through holistic education, like Spectrum Academy might offer.Many are seeking understanding of the Nature of our Being in this period of our planetary evolution. The children aren’t the only ones that are having difficulty finding their ‘center.’ As those gather in devotion to this pure sharable energy, we begin to become aware of our ‘godhood’ as we gain awareness of additional levels of consciousness and their applications. I often speak of the ‘other’ 45 senses in the 90% of our brain that science has thought to be dormant (simple ratio of senses to brain capacity).

As complete Beings nothing is dormant, only our awareness of it. So these processes allow us to have direct experience of these realms of consciousness and subsequently makes them REAL to each of us. As we become aware of these realms, we also become aware of our individuation and ‘role’ within the overall scheme of Creation. We are ONE yet have perfect fractalization that allows us to ‘find’ our perfect place in both consciousness and physical creation. We all know that we each have a ‘Divine Purpose’ for which we spend countless amounts of time pondering in our quest to find connection to ALL THAT IS.

Imagine a high school with the mission to empower young men and women to achieve the awareness and implementation of their life’s purpose today. My partner actually teaches at one now, so things are looking up. Imagine this concept carried through a college or university environment. How about an entire village?

Consistent with this line of logic, and recognizing many are incarnating from ‘other’ realms now, there are those who are discovering and sharing this understanding and the methodologies to develop them within oneself. I AM one of those who has come to do this and more. I Am One of Many. We’ve all had to move beyond the Messianic Complex. Understanding that one can simultaneously incarnate as a planet and administrator (in times past) brings us a bit closure to realizing that the more we know the more our ignorance exponentiates.

As we release the fear that ignorance promotes, there are many new experiences of connectivity that become available. Resistance to it is truly futile as this growth and connectivity is imbedded within our natural evolutionary process. JJ Hurtak’s book, “The Keys of Enoch,” addresses this very point. Even when we can ‘hear’ the ‘white noise’ in the silence within, we can gently rest in the arms of the dragon as we descend beyond the sound. This, too, opens up worlds of wonder…WOW.

It is time we knew more of who and what we are. “The Urantia Book” provides some very in-depth explorations of the spiritual and material hierarchies of Creation. An open mind and heart with sincere questions can uncover truth beyond the imagination of most people. Books aren’t necessarily ‘the way’ as much as they are a ‘verification’ of what others have found in their unadulterated search. They approach it as a child. Truth will always be self-revealing and promotes unity of action toward demonstrable reflection in our outer reality.

Simply put… we live in harmony with each other and the planet. The example I have been given to share to illustrate this, and the development of the new world order unlike what you’ve heard about in the news, is the Genesis II Community that is an extension of Spectrum Academy. The concept is an extension of work begun with the UN with some encouragement from Winifred Barton, a dear and precious soul who is now in her 90th decade on Earth. Your gifts of L.O.V.E. (limitless oscillating vibrational energy) are always appreciated and will reflect in glorious ways in your own lives.

Learning Culture

koko_pebble_md_whtLearning Culture

Spectrum Academy’s concept and design embodies the learning organization, constantly growing through leadership, educators, management, and staff that are change agents in themselves. Building a learning organization requires perseverance and persistence among the leadership team as there is normally much unlearning in the initial stages. Wise leadership anticipates the resistance and prepares pathways to shift the paradigm paralysis. Both external and internal forces have created the need for change within the areas of focus addressed by Spectrum’s plan. Facilitating a learning organization such as Spectrum Academy challenges the leadership to create a new model of change for the paradigm paralysis in education and juvenile correctional systems to date, which

Information Gathering – Organizational Capabilities

Education and communication, includes so-called “students-at-risk”, most of whom have severe difficulties learning within a mechanistic reductionistic paradigm, which emphasizes linear, sequential processes. Such has been the process of management in most of the facilities that address at-risk youth. Natural and common sense questions come forth for the gathering of information to facilitate the learning organization. What kinds of programs are working elsewhere, even if they are only pieces of Spectrum’s vision? How are these organizations implementing a structure that recognizes and adapts to what works while learning from and minimizing what does not? What and where are the performance gaps and disconnects? What are these old patterns within the existing systems and how/where would they manifest? What kinds of demonstrable results can be anticipated, documentable and observable? What metrics have been or can be used for documentation? The answers contribute to the factors that facilitate organizational learning, such as scanning imperatives, performance gaps, and concern for measurement.

Additional data is acquired by answering more questions. What are the key features of transformational leadership necessary in this quest for change, within the youths and in the potential residual personal patterns of staff that may inhibit the process? How are they evidenced? What process can be used to share observations and concerns? What are the alternatives that produce a paradigm shift toward patterns that engage transformation through use of behavioral and situational leadership? What organizations are having success with peer-community building? What continuous training will be necessary for leadership, management, staff and teachers? What are the leadership needs for the various business units within Spectrum? In the key areas of operation, who are the key leaders and what skill sets do they need to support operations? The answers to these questions focus on the experimental mindset, climate of openness, continuous education and operational variety within Spectrum Academy.

What kinds of communication channels are necessary to keep open lines of communication between all levels of the organization? Where and who are the apparent advocates and gatekeepers of procedure and process? How is the vision and mission maintained through the leadership team, relative to the educators, staff, youth and community stakeholders? What are the organizational goals and are they clear to the stakeholders? How does the interdependence of the business units, residential treatment center, charter school and community technology center, empower optimization of organizational goals and utilize problems to produce solutions of systemic relationships? These questions focus on the need for multiple advocates, involvement of leadership, and systems perspective of this learning organization as Spectrum Academy.

Learning Organizations

Metanoia, a shift in mind, is the core of a learning organization’s thrust for change. It can be said that a point of perspection dances in the balance of the seer’s vision. It is this ‘dance’ of the mind that seeks balance, order, and structure in the process of change; ultimately a ‘shift’ toward learning. Peter Senge details five key elements of a learning organization: systems thinking, personal mastery, mental models, building shared vision, and team learning.  He describes the team as – “a group of people who functioned together in an extraordinary way –  who trusted one another, who complemented each others’ strengths and compensated for each others’ limitations, who had common goals that were larger than individual goals, and who produced extraordinary results.” (Senge, 1990) According to the text, “A practical interpretation of these ideas results in the following definition. A learning organizationis one that proactively creates, acquires, and transfers knowledge and that changes its behavior on the basis of new knowledge and insights.” (Kreitner, 2001)

Initial Feature Introductions

Tom Peters says that, “The ultimate stage of involvement is the regular, spontaneous taking of initiative.” (Thriving on Chaos, 1987) It is only appropriate that education, from a systemic and systematic standpoint, finds new ways to draw out the unique individuality of an employee, a manager, or a student. Any system is the synergy of its parts, greater than the sum. “Because differentiation is one-half of a complex consciousness, each person must follow his or her own bent, find ways to realize his or her unique individuality.” (Evolving Self, 1993) The ‘systems’ approach here is to identify and nurture the natural skill sets of the individual in order for them to find their natural order and place within the collective,  evidencing and exampling a holistic view.

Resistance to Change

Humans often resist anything new. Crafting an approach to the resistance of the concept and application of holistic education offers opportunity to discover solutions to fix the flaws and close the gaps in the current approach. What we propose is a much better fit to the current situation and needs of the evolving student. An integrated system naturally addresses inherent conflict and provides tools to ascend from it, using the conflict to engage creative thinking rather than rote action, which the latter is accessing much lower levels of brain activity such as the fight or flight syndrome. “The survival of our ego is at stake. Our vision begins to be stated in things we don’t want- ‘I don’t want to fail,’ ‘I don’t want to be unhealthy,’ or ‘I don’t want to want to be poor.” (Magic of Conflict, 1987)

What fits here is the need to move toward collaboration rather than resistance. Our current educational environment often contributes to ‘moving away from’ rather than moving toward a goal or a vision, even though it is often stated otherwise. The fear of failure often precludes the joy of success. Trust means letting go of fear, even when you are vulnerable. Change creates vulnerability. Often the affect is not the desired outcome. A holistic approach includes the development and nurturing of the creative nature within the human being; what is supposed to be at the core of our person. This ‘fit’ has obvious benefit for both participants and staff at all levels.

Changes in Organizational Culture

The function of holistic education within the community exemplifies the systems approach in business, education, and community. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s research identifies some interesting details that not only acknowledge the obvious; they reveal potential structure for creating environments that illicit personal and professional growth, which is so necessary for the future of students and their success in life.

“As our studies have suggested, the phenomenology of enjoyment has eight major components. … The combination of all these elements causes a sense of deep enjoyment that is so rewarding people feel that expending a great deal of energy is worthwhile simply to be able to feel it.” (Flow, 1990)

Adults- educators, employees, leaders, managers, and professionals- throughout the structure will also notice an elevated feeling of accomplishment, which reflects in a stronger desire for change and results in promoting the new paradigm within the structure of the organization in carrying out the vision and mission.

Employee-Manager Relationships

Creation of win/win scenarios in the development stages of Spectrum Academy includes improvement in the manager/employee relationships. The strategic plan calls for the negotiation of resources (hard to soft), processes, and the inclusion of production and/or distribution of the products to be achieved through collaborative research and development projects, effectively partnering for profit.  Our customers are our students, their parents and/or guardians, the community, and other educational institutions that are shifting paradigm approaches toward education through purchasing the school’s products.

Prioritization of goals requires the business administration and operations of Spectrum Academy’s scorecard to be a primary concern. Developing partnerships empowers everyone to contribute their best efforts toward the success of Spectrum Academy. Looking at the specific example of old paradigm adversarial labor relations, partnerships between managers and employees bring a fresh approach to problem solving. The following example of interest-based negotiation comes from a working model in Michigan.

“What is the Interest-Based Process?
It is the non-adversarial approach to labor issues that can be used for negotiations, problem-solving, communications and relationships and improving school climate.

Why it Works
The interest-based process is based on objective reasoning rather than power or coercion. Because it is analytic and creative, it helps people employ these strengths as partners in problem-solving and decision-making. Unlike traditional negotiations where there are winners and losers, all parties in the interest-based process own the solution. There is mutual commitment to the process and its results.” (MECA, 1999)

The speed at which youth learn and adapt often intimidates adults that have forgotten the voracious appetites of young learners. Even young adults are far more adaptable to changing environments than in the past, even the previous generation. This can also affect staff performance. The creation of manager/employee partnerships can effectively smooth out the bumps in the process.

Embracing the Leadership of Change

The world thrives on the continuing development of technology. Leadership technology applied in psychospiritual, scientific, and organizational arenas facilitates a learning organization toward optimal performance. Both hard and soft technologies are critical in the ever-expanding insatiable curiosity of humans. Oftentimes we ‘do not know what cannot be done’ because there has never been much of the new technology focused in this particular direction.

We are learning to construct new models of reality with technology, inclusive of the educational and treatment arenas. The personal leadership of the writer embraces the optimal tenets of behavioral, charismatic, situational, transactional, and transformational styles. All of the past learning and development of personal style seems to fit perfectly into this environment. Anticipation of acceleration into recognized mastery among the employees, management, youth, and stakeholders outside the facility is appropriate consideration it would seem.

Monitoring the Process – Utilizing a Balanced Scorecard

The goals for the scorecard of administration and operations include customer, financial, innovation/learning and internal business perspectives. Our customers are our students, their parents and/or guardians, the community, and other educational/treatment institutions that are shifting paradigms. Prioritization of goals requires the business administration and operations of Spectrum Academy’s scorecard to be a primary concern. It currently looks like this:

Customer Perspective

    1. Our customers are consistently satisfied with the products and services provided by Spectrum Academy business administration and stakeholders.
    2. Our stakeholders recognize the value of our contribution to the Spectrum Academy mission:
      • Quality and efficiency of operations
      • Ethical exercise of fiduciary responsibility
      • Holistic approach to education/treatment
      • Creation of collaborative alliances

Financial Perspective

  1. We ensure Spectrum Academy financial integrity and demonstrate fiduciary responsibility for capital and financial assets throughout the system.
  2. We deliver our services in an efficient, cost-effective manner. The value we create exceeds the cost of creating it.
  3. We ensure delivery of quality services and products in support of the Spectrum Academy mission by facilitating the generation of revenue.

Innovation/Learning Perspective

  1. We create a workplace that fosters teamwork, integrity, professionalism, pride, and trust.
  2. We attract, retain and enable a highly skilled, diverse workforce capable of successfully delivering Spectrum Academy business administration and operations products and services to our customers.
  3. We achieve high degree of innovation, efficiency, effectiveness and quality of service in every area of our business through the utilization of information technology.
  4. We encourage and reward enterprising behaviors and actions throughout the Spectrum Academy system.
  5. We improve continuously.

Internal Business Perspective

  1. We develop and implement demonstrably clear policies, simple procedures and efficient work processes.
  2. We anticipate the future and we design and improve our programs and services in ways that ensure future success.
  3. Accountability underlies everything we do.
  4. We leverage our skills and resources, both collectively and individually, directly supporting the academic mission of Spectrum Academy.

“The balanced scorecard tracks the elements of an organization’s strategy – from serving its constituencies to developing partnerships, ensuring financial stewardship, building skills, fostering teamwork and continuously improving the effectiveness of internal work processes. No single measure can provide insight into an organization’s performance into relation to specific goals. The balanced scorecard allows the organization to view its performance through multiple lenses.” (U.of C., 2003)

Conclusion

Spectrum Academy is built on the foundation of best practices in management philosophy, inclusive of customer involvement, supply chain management, and labor relations. By adhering to the goals of the balanced scorecard approach, the school will engage cross-functional teams at every level in its operations. The discoveries of these teams and the analysis of their findings will set the prioritization for elements within each division and department.

Systems-thinking requires that all elements have importance and relevance in the mix. Spectrum Academy’s creation of interdependent business and community relationships will demonstrate the value of the vision and mission of the school. In today’s ever-changing environment, Spectrum Academy will have the administrational and operational foundations to manage that change with skill and precision. Combining, even synergizing, the traditional framework of business, school, and community so that it is addressed as a whole system only makes sense in the growing demands of operating in the world in an integrated fashion. The infrastructure of progressive institutions allows and even encourages new discoveries and their incorporation into the institutional mix. The Academy seeks to apply cutting-edge integrative technologies, both scientific and psychospiritual, across the spectrum to meet the emerging demands of the 21st Century student and community.
