“The Yearning”

 August 6th, 2011 

 Dzogchen Beara,

 I am at a Buddhist retreat.  I’m not a Buddhist, and except for my fascination for Tibetan Buddhism in my late teens (come on, who hasn’t heard of that book “The Third Eye” by Lobsang Rampa?), I really never experienced much more than a passing interest in the philosophy. Only the artwork and some of the music forms and instruments have kept me engaged with Buddhism. Even saw the Dalai Lama once, although that was a mixed bag. Liked the humour and humility, and felt completely underwhelmed by a treatise on a meditation technique from the 14th Century. Not my cup of tea.

“The Third Eye” had metaphysical adventures that you seldom hear about anymore. Astral travel, clairvoyance, clairaudience, and precognition were the things that got me going. I really wanted to explore meditation too, and I did so with gusto (is that an oxymoron?).  Once, after I had been meditating and attempting astral projection in my bedroom for about three months, I got it into my head to place a compass on my bed, just about where my solar plexus would be when I was laying there.  I got a shock…my first lesson about energy and mind over matter. Instead of the compass dutifully pointing to magnetic North, it pointed due to where my head would have been.  Ahh, I thought, I am making progress!

Now that I’ve passed into my sixth decade in this incarnation, I look back at my intrigue with metaphysics and spirituality, and can really begin to acknowledge all that has guided me along my path. Many positive experiences, and even the negative experiences turned out to be positive. The one thing that kept me going was passion. Passion to know more, remember more, absorb more, and experience more. I was spiritually ambitious I suppose, but never greedy (I hope!). 

One of Buddhism’s major tenets or teachings is about the desire nature, or how the attachments to desire limit our access to enlightenment and peace.  Desire can be very distracting, very tempting and pernicious. Is desire the same as passion, or is passion an aspect of desire?  Does the Passion of The Christ fall under the same definition, or is it somehow elevated above earthly desire? To answer my own question, I think Divine Passion and earthly passion can be entwined in some way.  As Jean-Yves Leloup, translator of “The Gospel of Mary Magdalene” notes that “unless the sensual is completely experienced it can never be redeemed”… or something like that.

Yet, it is my current passion and desire to move deeper into my interior realm, and so I use the tools of limitation to discover the numinous and ineffable spaces inside. To fully commit to the awakening of the senses, by using them consciously, we can create an opening into Consciousness.  You might think of it as a metaphysical form of leverage. It is much easier to move big stones with levers that with brute strength.

The body is, I feel, a gateway to the aliveness that is in the in-between, or the ‘nous’.  The ‘nous’ is the subtlest of realms between spirit and matter – the stillpoint.  The particular form of Buddhist meditation employed where I was staying emphasizes using the body and the breath as a way to still the mind. If the body is seated in the proper posture, if the breath is mindfully engaged with, then stillness of mind happens without forcing.  This does work.  Breathing meditations and therapies have been gaining recognition in recent times because of their simplicity and effectiveness. Simplicity defuses complexity every time, rendering the complex mental noise that passes for thought most of the time, virtually powerless.

When we can enter these states of stillness and awareness, what happens to the senses? What happens to passion?  The senses actually become quite elevated and more, well, sensitive (and sensible). The passions are quieter, but not dissipated – more intense and quiet.  It changes character, becomes more subtle.  Now the passion is for more of this stillness, more of this full body, full sensory, full consciousness experience.  What is missing now is the struggle and the neediness…trying to fill the hole inside.  The passion for unification is the infinite wave of Consciousness; the wave comes ashore, then moves away again, but is inexorably drawn to the shore again. Somewhere in the middle of this movement, the truth is found, and comfort along with it.

Humans are striving for comfort, yearning for it in fact.  In western societies the passion for comfort has resulted in an endless parade of products or experiences promising comfort or ease in some way.  A simple quilt or blanket can impart the remembered comfort of childhood naps in a way that the 6-way electric adjustable bucket seats in a luxury automobile cannot compete with.  Snuggling with a lover has no equal to any form of modern living room furniture.  Dozing with a cat on your lap is always supreme to any form of footwear, or ergonomically-designed sunglasses.  We are exploring the edge of the envelope when it comes to material comforts, but do not recognize the deeper passion, the real hunger we are attempting to satisfy.  Along the way we have created an entire world economy based on the attainment of comforts, and still we are uncomfortable.  This situation is a passion-killer.

We are perfectly capable of envisioning and manifesting a world in which all basic physical comforts could be supplied.  First, the quest for comfort needs a reorientation towards the inner Comforter, the inner parent if you will.  It has already been postulated that we already possess that necessary finances, technology and know-how to supply every being with the essentials, without undue environmental or planetary stress. Obviously, this will require a leap of consciousness to shift from a consumer-oriented perspective to a quality-of-life paradigm.  It may also require the reclaiming of the machinery of finances and other institutions and systems from the control of the current oligarchies.

In Christianity, the Comforter is first mentioned by Jesus to his apostles in regards to his pending death, resurrection and ascension.  He said He would send the Comforter to them after all these things had happened.  The early church philosophers felt this was a reference to the Holy Spirit, the power that came through Mother Mary to the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. However, I feel that Jesus may have been referring to the Divine Mother, the archetype that encompasses the sense of love and loving kindness.  It also seems that this ‘comforting’ aspect actually imparts a sense of passion, and perhaps a type of spiritual courage to do what must be done, even in the face of what seems like a lost cause.  This Comforter is what gave the followers of Jesus the surety of their mission and message, and caused many of them to surrender their lives without resistance when opposed.

In Buddhism there are many divine beings and archetypes that correspond to the Comforter, and one can find parallels in all the major and minor faiths.  Avalokiteśvara, Quan Yin, Mother Mary and many other archetypes display the quality of spiritual comfort and reassurance in times of adversity and trial. Paul McCartney’s “Let It Be” illustrates a simple trust in the comforting presence of Mother Mary.  Mary Magdalen offers us a glimpse into an icon that demonstrates the qualities of comforter, companion and fierce teacher in one image.  Some may feel that the dependence on these archetypes is a form of denial or martyrdom, a reliance on salvation from another realm in the face of earthly suffering.  My current insights have shown me the wisdom of allowing for the communication with the ‘above’ in order to obtain assistance in removing not only the causes of suffering, but the means through which we become fully human and fully sons and daughters of the divine while still enfolded in physicality. Even the Master, Jesus, saw the metaphysical and spiritual truth of the power of Infinite Love responding to the call for comfort when he stated, ‘if I be lifted up, I shall lift all beings unto Me.” Our colloquialism of ‘all boats rise together’ describes this metaphor well.

Why is it that we need or yearn for this sense of Source, a divine parent?  And why is it that we continually create the suffering and crisis’s that precipitate our crying out for comfort and guidance? Reportedly, men mortally wounded on a battlefield always call to their mother.  Is it their physical mothers they call to, or their spiritual mother? What, pray tell, is the difference? Perhaps no difference to the being who is facing the unknown.   We seem to need the shock of experience in order to propel us to grow and reach up and out to something beyond ourselves, something safe and sound that is instinctively reliable.  If everything was comfortable, or we were comfortably numb, then no movement in consciousness seems to occur, and we are still beset with feeling the distance between ourselves and our Source. The gulf is then traversed, as the bridges burn behind us.  We let go of our wounds and our attachments to our comforts and come face to face with our true nature, prodigal sons and daughters are welcomed home.

In a personal sense, at times I have felt or directly experienced both Marys; Mother and Magdalen.  Sometimes there even physical signs of their manifestation in the form of profound scents of rose , lilies, or jasmine floating in the airs around me.  Sometimes others who were present with me also experienced  these fragrances, which assured me that I wasn’t ripe for the mental ward.  Perhaps it is not so unreasonable to ask for comfort, or to ask for it from a place of ‘above’ within our own hearts.  Everyone can explore in his or her own way what seems to work, or what experiences might come forward.  Just start where you are, even if you don’t believe it. Use your passion, your desire for peace and comfort.  Sitting still long enough to know a moment’s peace is a beginning, an opening to something greater within.  Can it be so easy to just ask that the Comforter is sent to you? 

I feel it is just that easy. 

“Whatsoever you shall ask, believing, my Father in Heaven will give you.”

Dzogchen Beara
West Cork, Ireland

I was sinking, drowning in the everyday
I was thinking, forgetting how to play
Always shoulding, coulding, woulding
Where am I? Where is this place where I roam?

The desert of existence and pre-existing
I’ve been offered a glimpse, a respite from the electronic din
A place to fall together in

Who are the angels of Dzogchen Beara?
These sentinels of peace are everywhere in evidence
Each blade of grass, the flowers, the whispering pines
And beyond the sea that seems to solid and infinite
Reassures me, sings like a silent lullabye.                                  

The slow world has embraced me
As it drives me into myself
More of a fall than a push
So easy to surrender, once you’ve made the jump
Womblike and wondrous, no time, no space
Sky and water merge at the line of the earth
Extending into the Void beyond

Slow world so alive and yet so still
The rains glisten
The light changing, always shifting
I shed my skins, I shed my tears
What now fear?
Your power is frail and distant in this realm
This closer to the real
The other is the dream
I am rocked awake by my truth

Home is here

“Radical Faith”

Teachings from the Christ Awareness
through Isaac George

Jul 30 2011 (New Moon)

“Today is a new beginning, a fresh start. Let go of yesterday, and let go of tomorrow. Although there are many challenges in your life, many demands upon you and your time, come and sit here quietly with Me in the solitude for a little while. Lay down your burdens, surrender your cares, if only for a short space of time. For I Am not here to push you, criticize you, or correct you. I am here as your Friend, a Companion for your Soul. My best advice to you is to draw a deep breath now, and to release the tensions in you, and in your body. Take that breath, followed by another, and still another if you feel you need to. Just focus on that feeling for a moment, the feeling of Life tingling in you and in every cell of your Being. Delicious, isn’t it? Calmness and serenity cannot be experienced when you are half out of your body. Only when you are fully present can you actually realize that you are more than the body. This is one of the greater mysteries of Consciousness and existence.

The physical/material realm and the senses have been a way through which you and many of your brothers and sisters fell asleep and forgot that they were sons and daughters of Mother-Father God. Now, the senses are the medium through which you can access that which may not be touched by hands – the inexpressible and inexhaustible essence of Love and Consciousness that flows forth as you in this world. When you are in touch with your aspect of Presence within you, the sense vibrate with awareness, pleasure and sensitivity, attuned to the Presence in all that appears solid and substantial, while at the same time offering you the gateway into your Soul and beyond. It is also through the senses that pain is experienced, yet I tell you that even pain is an awakener, a way to access the Love within. Once one surrenders to the pain, the gift comes forward, the awareness to heal the cause of the pain presents itself, and then the pain changes. Sometimes it turns into pleasure and bliss, but most of the time it lapses into complete stillness and emptiness.

Grief and horror at the unfolding of recent events are the natural reaction to violent tragedy. It is well to release all that blocks the flow of your consciousness. However, these emotions are unhealthy if they obscure your understanding of what lies behind the events themselves, what the root causes are. The pain and suffering can awaken, or it may sometimes cause souls to shut down, to cease being responsive and caring. If there is any manipulation behind the actions intended to harm others, if there are agendas, then the results leave psychic scarring on many more than have been directly affected. Then it becomes more difficult to avoid judgment of the circumstances and the souls involved, and to paint others as guilty. This will boomerang on you, if you are not compassionate with the situation. Now, please breathe again, and let go deeply.

There’s a lot of ‘what if’s…’ flying around too. The power of ‘what if’ is not true power, but a projection of fear, an anticipation of future pain and suffering. It is everywhere in the collective at this moment. The bill has come due on the future that was promised you by the politicians and pundits, a future based solely on materialism and social engineering. It is an utter failure, and still no one wants to look at the elephant in the room, or offer an alternative vision. Do not wait for them to tell you what your dream should be, or threaten you with the ‘what if’ of what may occur if you don’t keep the present system of consensus reality limping along. You may be wondering how it will all turn out. I spoke to this when I walked upon the Earth two millennia ago. I described all the upheavals and discord you are now in the midst of, because Spirit’s vision through me saw the eventual consequences and outcomes of the Luciferian mind-set that was in place at the time.

My mission was to teach of the love of the Mother-Father, and to awaken as many as would hear my Voice that they were equal Sons and Daughters who had a right to inherit the Kingdom. This Kingdom is your true state of Consciousness, a place that is absent of fear or suffering. You cannot create Heaven on Earth, because the only place you can know it is within you. My mission was to also implant the seed of Infinite Love into the planetary sphere, so that it would clear and balance what had gone before. It was to defeat Death, and it will eventually dissolve what you term time and limitation. This was what I meant by my ‘church’ and that the Gates of Hell could not prevail against it. The church is the awareness of Love, realized through Faith, and lived as Truth. Faith is the lynchpin, the cornerstone, as I will explain next.

Now ‘faith’ is like belief, and unlike it. The faith I speak of is not a blind faith, a faith not founded upon a rock-solid foundation. Faith is the foundation, is the Rock. Faith is Knowing, or Wisdom that only comes with a maturity of Soul. Belief has two functions: belief can be used to experiment and grow through experiences in physicality. In one experience you believe a certain thing, until experiences or circumstances conspire to show you that your belief is unworkable or unsustainable. Sometime facts dissolve beliefs!

The other kind of belief is a desire that is given a significant amount of Life Force energy, or Consciousness, in order to achieve a particular goal or result. This is the foundation for much of the philosophy of the ‘abundance merchants’ that you are so familiar with. Another aspect of this would be an athlete who, through sheer self-belief and will-power, propels themselves into the Olympics and wins the gold medal in their chosen event. These processes are the stuff of magical thinking, not miracle awareness.

Now, neither path is wrong, but each of them comes with an in-built set of limitations and consequences. One of the most difficult consequences is when a soul believes very strongly, does all the rituals correctly, faces their fears, does their inner work, and still they reap disappointment. They then beat up on themselves for ‘not getting it right’, or not being good enough. This belief then delays them from the next step in awareness, the power of real Faith. Beating yourself up, or ranting against God will not solve the issues. In all circumstances, the Mother-Father patiently waits, and I gently knock on the door of your heart, until you come to the place where you are willing to admit that what you’re doing isn’t working. This is when you are on the threshold of Faith.

As things unravel in this world ever more quickly, I encourage you to explore the letting go, the surrendering to the Mother-Father within you. As I eventually had experienced upon the cross, you will discover your true nature and experience the power of real Faith inside of you. You will fear nothing; not illness, poverty or death. Nothing can touch the real you. The Real You does not worry about the future, or fret over the past. The Real You embraces the Present fully, even the pain that might be in it, because the I Am in you is without fear, and is nothing but Infinite Love, Infinite Acceptance.

What I am imparting to you is that there is no worldly teaching, no spiritual method or technique that has more real power and truth in it than your capacity to surrender yourself to that which is God Herself within. Then, all the missing pieces will fall into place, and you will know how to create, and more importantly, when and what to create. Your will is the Will of the Father. Your desires are Her desires. The way is open for miracles to occur. You need not be concerned by the what, when, why, where or how, because you just know to trust!

Now, this all comes with a caveat. The world will not approve of you, so don’t look for accolades. You won’t get rich from this, and you may not always be the picture of radiant health. Any soul that has chosen to lose their self-created identity or life, in order to allow their true nature as the Christ to shine through, won’t win any popularity contests. In fact, you might just make some folks downright uncomfortable when you’re around. Some may even attack you for what you say about what you perceive. Forgiveness must be plentiful if you are to walk in your real shoes. Your courage must be impeccable if you are not to allow your sovereignty to be infringed upon. The world still clings desperately to the beliefs of a Fallen Mind. That, my friends, is a subject for another time.

Even though there is chaos in the world, I counselled that the days ahead will have trouble enough of their own, without you adding to it. I recommend that you embrace each experience and situation with prayer, meditation, awareness, and most importantly, with breath. I encourage you to follow the dictates of your heart, and cultivate listening to the gentle Voice within that will guide you. I urge you to avoid the temptation of taking the easy road that promises false safety and security. When every soul is following their aspect of Spirit, then harmony will be present. And please, do not do this for Me; do it for your own Self, your own edification. Spirit does not coerce or require you to do anything. There is nothing you can do to hasten the establishment of peace except to discover and heal that which is not at peace within you. The rest is already being accomplished. What is it God cannot do?

There is a powerful movement of consciousness and awakening occurring on the planet at this time, and simultaneously there is every kind of evidence of the backlash against this awakening. There is darkness in the world, and there is Light. To call it all Light and goodness is a naiveté’. To call it all darkness is a serious mistake. Does evil exist in the world? Look at the headlines, watch the television…what would you say? What happens when someone cuts you off in traffic? Are your thoughts loving and without anger? When you choose to tune out and turn away from the injustices, violence and poverty that your brother or sister experience, is it because you don’t want to add to the negativity, or is it because you are lukewarm? Where do the thoughts and energy come from that can cause a single human being to murder innocent souls? Where do the thoughts and energy come from that does that same kind of murder via remote control using a robotic aircraft? It is the same thought, the same energy. It is only a matter of scale and application that is different.

In some spiritual perspectives the concept of non-duality is utilized as a process to relate to the polarity of Life from a position of non-attachment or judgment. While this confers a kind of peace for the adherent of this perspective, it is an insular process that removes the observer from the experience. This is an abstraction, and false peace. When this happens, when there is the deliberate removal of the ability to perceive evil and suffering, then a dissociative event has occurred, and that soul is just a bit more deadened to the plight of others. It is through a direct experience of your feelings and through the transformation of your heart that you discover radical faith.

Although I say to you that it is not yours to take on the suffering in the world, neither do I recommend that you insulate or rationalize your relationship to it. Without active compassion and radical faith, the examples of God’s messengers would not be self-evident. Souls such as Gandhi, Martin Luther King, Albert Schweitzer could not have given their gifts if they had been ‘non-dualists’. The only real non-dualism that is of the Holy Spirit; it is that all souls are innocent, all acts are forgivable, and that all are equally and uniquely endowed with a particular gift and purpose. You cannot know radical faith, and be impervious to what is unfolding in front of you on this planet at this time. I said ‘resist not evil’. I never ignored it, nor did I pretend it didn’t exist. If you ignore evil, or spiritualize or view it only in the abstract, you give it energy as well. Ignorance is not any protection against the rapacious hunger of it. I encourage you to be as gentle as doves, and as wise as serpents, for She has sent you out into the world as lambs amongst the wolves.

Now, breathe deeply again. Come back into your heart, into your centre. Be not troubled by the things of the world. Be joyful, for I have overcome the world. What does this mean? It means I Am always in trust of Spirit. To overcome the world is to no longer look for yourself in it, or be intimidated by it. Relax, you don’t have to die and rise again to do this, except metaphorically. Letting go of control and thinking that you have to do it all on your own, will be the first step towards this most precious of pearls. You must be responsible for what is yours…your dreams, taking care of yourself and the body, acting with integrity in your Life…these are yours. All of the rest, rests in larger Hands…if you will make room for it in your Life.

Do not look only upon this world as being a place of woe and ‘problems’, for that way leads to despair. All things here and in the Kingdom are already yours, without a doubt! The parable of the Prodigal Son and Daughter is everyone’s story, everyone’s experience. The Father-Mother has made no rules, offered no burden for you to carry…you don’t have to measure up to some imagined standard in order to receive the beauty in this world or others. I said, ‘be ye perfect’, which was to remind you of your perfection, your innocence. I might have said ‘be ye unbroken and self-punishing’ and it would have meant the same thing. So, receive the good as it is in the world, and leave the rest.

You might ask Me, ‘what yet must I do in order to know this radical faith, and the peace that comes with it?’ I tell you that you need to be aware of your reluctance to receive, your inability to open to your good. Ask yourself if you are holding onto anger – against another, against yourself, or against Goddess. Examine if you are still desirous of looking to please others and seek the approval from outside of yourself. Does vanity come into the picture? What about pride? Who is running the show in your head? When you embark upon the path of radical faith, you will be tempted. The temptation will be to cut a deal, to ask Spirit to do this and that for you, while you go about doing what you’ve always done. You might even take the credit for ‘what you did’ or ‘what you accomplished’ and forget to acknowledge that it is the Creator within you that doeth the works. All that is necessary to alter this circumstance is your determination to remember your Source, and your Real Self. After all, aren’t these two things one and the same? If you are interested in wholeness, then there is no house divided in you, and you travel in peace and serenity, full of trust in the moment.

Breathe in God, breathe out Goddess. This is the dance of creation, and it never stops, never tires, and is always dancing. In fact, when you worry too much, then it is time to dance. Even if you have two left feet, dance anyway.

Remember, you never walk alone. I Am always with you, unto the end. This is the end of all things, as you have known it, and the beginning of all things, as you have dreamed it. Your Kingdom is not of this world, yet you are in the world. Be then the Light of the world, for that is your role, your soul’s true purpose. Spirit calls to Its own, and Its own hear the call and respond. Listen in the stillness. You will know what it is that you are to be, and do.

Peace be with you.”

August PDL Newsletter post

August 2011

Greetings of peace,

After the events unfolded in Norway a week ago, I have been looking inwardly at my own sense and sensibilities. All through the middle of last week I felt a palpable emotional pressure building in me, and feeling of something working towards a crescendo. This was both a familiar and unfamiliar sensation. I didn’t recognize the familiar bit till Saturday afternoon, the day after the violent and tragic events in Norway occurred, and it was all over media. The unfamiliar part was my attempt to discern what I felt was ‘wrong’ with me in the days before the shootings. I was experiencing exhaustion and lethargy, disorientation, mild depression, crankiness, and a general sense of ‘impendingness’. What was going on with me? I consulted my chart and transits, I looked outwardly at my present circumstances, searching for the location of the fear and discomfort. I had not felt this weird in ages.

When I awoke on Saturday morning, I felt like the balloon had popped, or the weight had lifted. The morning felt easy, open and airy. I didn’t turn on the computer and see the headlines till after breakfast, and then sat there a bit stunned as I took in what had happened. As my heart opened, I remembered how I’d felt all week, and as the day progressed, I also remembered the powerful experiences I had just prior to the event now known as ‘9/11’. I had been on a retreat at the time, and was staying at a place that was ‘off the grid’ on the slopes of Mt.Shasta, California. In the early morning hours on Sunday the 9th and Monday the 10th, I was awakened…I seem to remember 3am. As I lay there wondering why I was awake, I could feel that my cheeks were damp. Apparently I had been crying in my sleep. I got up both mornings, and made my way to the yurt to use the bathroom and try to understand why I’d been crying. When I woke the second morning, Monday, I felt the need for some inspiration and insight. I discovered a small bookcase behind the toilet…bathroom library I suppose, and one book in particular called to me. Its title was “Silence of the Heart- Reflections of the Christ Mind” by Paul Ferrini. As I thumbed through it, reading bits and pieces, I felt a deep comfort replace the unsettledness in my chest and belly. Gradually, uncertainty gave way to peace and tranquillity. I no longer felt any concern of what I was experiencing earlier, or what it might mean.

When the phone rang at 7:30am PST on Tuesday, September 11th, 2001, and my partner Faith was relaying to me the events as described over the phone to her from her friend Kevin in Virginia, I knew then what the tears in Mt.Shasta had meant. I knew what finding the book was for, and I knew that was unfolding was all about. As the shockwaves spread through the collective planetary awareness, I felt impeccably calm and certain. Of what I was certain of was indescribable. It was like I had been shown the truth behind the curtain, and it didn’t frighten or concern me at all. Although great grief and great outrage boiled throughout the American psyche, and although I saw how this was milked and manipulated for all it was worth, I still felt calm and certain. Indescribable, like I said.

Ten years later, the shockwaves only seem to be gathering in intensity. Lots of little 9/11’s happen every day, every week. Every so often a larger shock goes off, like the staccato strike of tympani in an orchestra. The pressure keeps building in the pipeline, and I watch with a mixture of curiosity and incredulity at how friends and strangers deal with it. The shockwaves are not confined to the events of the larger world, but are the world, solar system and galaxy itself. More earthquakes and volcanoes are happening than at any other time in modern record-keeping, and it grows exponentially. There are signs and wonders everywhere in evidence. Miracles and misery, side-by-side, and we keep on going, keep on hoping. However, hoping is a symptom of dissatisfaction with the present moment, and depends on ‘it’ll be better in the future, once everything is fixed just the way I want it to look’, or something like that. Who or what is going to fix it; Ascended Masters, Messiahs and Space people? That’s just more giving of your power away to external authorities. That is a false salvation.

Since my last birthday, at the end of June, I have been going through an initiation of sorts. Some of what got laid aside during the past seven years has come back to me renewed and refreshed. The inner dialogue is reawakening with a new strength and clarity. The astrologer in me wants to credit the transits of Pluto and Uranus, but I feel that attributing it to Spirit is more accurate. Now I feel a new commitment to finding and arriving into my ‘being’ self, rather than playing the seeking game any longer. For almost a week now, during my dreamtime and in the early morning hours when half-awake, I was hearing the voice of the Master Yeshua (the Christ), gently talking. In dreams it was as if I was just one person in a small group sitting around a grove, while He spoke about many things. These ‘conversations’ have formed the basis of the transmission in this Newsletter, “Radical Faith”.

Now we’re only a month and a few days away from the 10 year anniversary of 9/11, and so much has changed. Whatever happens next and no matter where we are on this planet, we will all experience it together. Strength in numbers ya know!

I am beginning the process of letting go of the many philosophies and positions I’ve acquired in the course of 50-odd years, and along with that quite a few books, old paraphernalia and recording of readings, and some real old dead-weight baggage. We gotta travel Light these days! Less will be more, and the last shall be first, etc., etc.

Cultivating beginner’s mind, and embracing an attitude of ‘I don’t know’ is part of my current meditations. Solitude is important as well, and although I am part of a partnership, I have come to see that relationships are a tool for our consciousness to either wake up (and stay awake) or go back to sleep again. It is necessary to take ourselves up to the mountain (or woods, or sea, or closet) and hook up with our mojo. Otherwise, we end up feeling diffused and confused.

This August-September will be very interesting. Watch for the next edition of Pure Divine Love soon…it won’t be long!
