This ancient science connects us to things beyond the physical plane. This is the great field of study that connects all the mysteries traditions: from astrology, tarot, numerology, sacred geometry, hermeticism and so many other of the esoteric science are all based on an understanding of a physic that is beyond this material world of existence. Yet the proof of their reality is not in the superstitions of their possibilities, but in the realities of their knowledge and how it has helped to evolve further our human understanding of who we are and what our place in the universe truly is. We can ask the question of metaphysics: What is our destiny and what tools do I need to fulfill that destiny?
By Deepak Chopra on May 20, 2013 in Science
We promised at the outset to explain the nature of reality by going to its very heart. To all appearances reality is dual. The objective world exists “out there” to be measured, but its existence is known only through subjective experience, which is “in here.” Both worlds need each other, and to be trapped in only one is unsatisfactory. The world turns into a dream only if you are conscious of your inner feelings, moods, sensations, and images. Yet if you rely only upon the physical world, you may wind up with meaningless data that don’t provide any link to what is truly important in everyday life. This point is easy enough to see, but joining the two worlds into wholeness isn’t easy.
Indeed, the task is so difficult that science proceeds as if it can exclude the mysterious, unreliable world “in here,” preferring measures of reality that can be reduced to quantifiable numbers. As a result, all of us have become used to balancing two versions of reality, and we do it almost without thinking. A summer day can be 90 degrees Fahrenheit, which is a fact, or it can be warm, which is a sensation. The two are not synonymous. “Warm” is a purely subjective statement, and it has no correlation to the thermometer. (After a subzero winter in Antarctica, 32 degrees F. feels warm, whereas compared to the inside of a volcano, 90 degrees F. is cool.)
Is there a way to join these two halves of reality? Most people aren’t concerned with such a question, but we posit that wholeness – seeing reality exactly for what it is – would set the human mind, and human life itself, free. The cosmos is a cold prison measured as meaningless data extracted from random events. To be human is to crave meaning, and yet intellectual honesty compels us not to accept easy answers. It is too easy, for example, to say that God created the universe, and since God loves us, the universe is our loving home. Such answers once sufficed, but four hundred years of scientific theories and data to back them up have swamped us. Overwhelmed by facts about the world “out there,” it is a struggle to give the world “in here” the validity it deserves.
Our trek to wholeness, as outlined in the first two posts, involves the quantum principle of complementarity, whose purpose is to make some of Nature’s seeming paradoxes compatible. (Please refer to the previous posts to see how this repair job on duality works.) Essentially, complementarity holds that opposites need each other – they cannot be complete in themselves without the other “half”. The classic example is the opposition of particle and wave, which look and act totally different but which are the inescapable reality of quanta. Complementarity is critical because it asserts that there is only one reality, and no matter how much it shifts its shape as we look from different perspectives, all the angles from which reality can be seen must ultimately fit together. This is comparable to all the tourist photos taken of the Grand Canyon. No matter how many there are, what time of day or night when they were taken, and irrespective of the million aspects of the canyon that were chosen, the whole collection of photos can’t depict different Grand Canyons – there is only one in the first place.
Unfortunately, things aren’t this simple when we substitute “reality” for “Grand Canyon,” because from the perspective of “in here” there is no proof that the external world exists independently of conscious awareness. At the same time, using only scientific data gathered “out there,” there is no proof of the subjective world, either. An MRI scan can show the brain centers for pain lighting up, yet if you ask someone “How much does your arthritis hurt today?” only their subjective report is valid. Even consciousness itself is only inferred by watching the brain light up. A brain scan is actually a very complicated version of those cartoons where a light bulb goes off when somebody, usually an egghead professor, has a bright idea. The light bulb can’t tell you what the bright idea actually is, and neither can an MRI.
Thus in order to see reality as a whole, we have to ask something incredibly basic: Why did creation split into subject and object in the first place? They are so wildly incompatible that this split has dogged and troubled humankind for centuries. Couldn’t God or the multiverse or random chance have come up with something much simpler, a reality that holds together properly? It doesn’t seem all that much to ask.
The two worlds “in here” and “out there” are either split for a reason or it just happened that way. If it just happened that way, fine. Science will go on, and so will subjective experience, and the two will uneasily meet somewhere in the brain. But if “in here” and “out there” are split for a reason, that’s a new story. There have been many versions of the story so far. In many cultures, there was once a Golden Age that was innocent, pure, and untroubled (in other words, whole) while now we live in a fallen age, and our separation from God or the gods has resulted in a fragmented world. Good is forced to come to terms with its opposite, evil, and therefore a reality of light and darkness envelops us. Needless, to say, such a story has not been satisfactory in a rational, scientific age. It persists as myth and religion, which billions of people still prefer to science.
We come closer to a rational story via complementarity, because when complementarity holds that opposites have a hidden unity at the limit of observation (revealed through mathematics), a complete view of quantum physics is satisfied. An opposite pair light wave and particle arise from the same source, and even if this source is beyond the five senses, lying in some invisible virtual domain, quantum mechanics can link the opposites and thus make every measurement turn out right. By extension, can we say the same about “in here” and “out there”? Do they spring from a common source?
Our answer is yes, and we point to the only source that could unite them, which is consciousness. The universal model for any experience needs three parts, commonly called the observer, the observed, and the process of observation. “Newton saw an apple” fits this model, as does “the collapse of the wave function produces a particle.” In the first case, the observer is named – Newton. In the second, the observer is implied. A great many physicists would balk, however, claiming that the collapse of the wave function doesn’t need an observer. It can happen even with automated experiments that carry out observations of the quantum system. It’s an objective event that occurs trillions of times throughout the cosmos, like countless other events (colliding hydrogen atoms, exploding stars, protons getting sucked into black holes) that came along before observers ever existed.
But this argument, which seems so commonsensical, is fallacious. The principle of complementarity tells us that “in here” and “out there” aren’t just compatible; they are necessary to each other, intertwined aspects of the whole. You can’t have one without the other. Grasping this fact is hard. Classical Western science, from the ancient Greeks through Newton and beyond, was based on atoms, molecules, and other physical “stuff” that exists on its own. But just as there cannot be particles without waves; “out there” needs consciousness, “in here.” This is a participatory universe, and leaving the participant out cannot be valid. In a fundamental sense, the universe is human, because we aren’t just isolated observers like kids pressing their noses to the window of a bakery shop. The three-part model needs all three parts: observer, observed, and process of observation.
Stay tuned for Part 4!

In the three decades leading up to the prophetic dates of 2012, and at the end of a 5,125 year Mayan cycle of time, we have entered a very unique time on Earth that is filled with great potential. We are about at the end of a long, exciting but exhausting 33 year journey that has taken us through the dark rift in the Milky Way. 33 is a powerful master number and also the center frequency of the Maya Tzolk'in. The Maya know this rift to be a place of great transformation, and we will be completely through this dark rift by 2016. (from 1983-2016) When we look back, we can see that we are no longer the same person that we were when we began this adventure together.
The beginning of this sacred 33 year passage was triggered by the Harmonic Convergence in 1986 that also triggered a global Spiritual Renaissance in which we re-birthed, re-modeled, re-hashed, re-claimed, re-mapped, re-booted and re-membered. We just about re-did everything and, in doing so, we looked deep into our hearts with the precision of an electron microscope. But that period is over. It is fading into a dim memory. Our work is done there, and what we have done cannot be repeated. We have made the leap.
Now, 30 years later, we are beginning to exit the dark rift in the Milky Way. This is triggering yet another Spiritual Renaissance. We will feel the first hints of this renaissance on Equinox (March 19-22) by feeling a profound lifting of spirit and an transformed inner light that has returned after a long 3 month cocoon stge. The Star Elders share that by Solstice (June 21-23, 2013) it will be obvious that we have entered a new frequency, dimension, bandwidth, reality and perspective. It will be time to put into action your new and divine creative skills to work.
The intense uncertainty and anticipation that was building for the prophetic dates of December 21, 2012 has passed, and we have entered into a new beginning that is a merging of our physical body with our spirit with the divine plan. The world did not end in horrific cataclysms; nor was there an ecstatic rapture into paradise. A fleet of UFOs didn't come to save us either. But we knew it would turn out this way. The sensitive ones of this world are now breathing a deep sigh of relief as the energy bubble, overflowing with crushing ambiguity and expectation has burst, and a more balanced, peaceful and harmonious energy is emerging into the new Earth.
Up until now, for most of the conscious community, the universe felt like it had hit the pause button. We felt like a ships without rudders. Even what we held true was flip flopping on a daily basis, and we felt an enormous apathy to all things in our material lives. We felt like we were in an odd place of suspended animation floating in a void of immaculate space. We have entered the creative womb of divine potential. We have entered an incubation phase of a new and exciting cycle. We are dreaming a new world while maintaining a body in the physical world. We are living and dreaming all at the same time. It is an oddly fascinating place to witness . . . like watching the birth of a star.
All new cycles, like the one we just entered, begin slowly with lots of surreal, dreamlike space in which to make very creative imaginings and visualizations that will soon become the foundation stones for this entire new cycle. At first our world might feel it lacks luster. Many people are sharing with me that they are missing the buzz of 2012, and the world now feels a bit mundane. We are literally being asked to go "cold turkey" on breaking our addiction to really high pitched energies from the past cycle that we had become accustomed to. This is an adjustment as we let go of the drama and ego and frantic pace that we were accustomed to. Others are making huge adjustments in their lives to self-correct and come into alignment with this new cycle and field of possibility. This takes raw and instinctual courage as we enter a multi-dimensional world.
While in this suspended animation, we are becoming comfortable with the void and the unknown. Even though there is some oddly unproductive searching going on (this is a temporary state by the way), we also feel safe and secure regarding the eminent outcome of our incubation. We are collecting new tools for the future. This is a safe place for us while the Earth, our physical form and our DNA recalibrates to the new frequencies. We are gathering information that we will need for the new birth . . . And we can feel it coming.
So now what? It is time to get really friendly with the unknown that is out in front of us now. The world is going to change, and so are we. There are going to be some surprising changes in the directions in our physical and spiritual lives. We will be mystified and sometimes overwhelmed by all the myriad of choices. We are struggling to get clear about what is next for our lives, but our usual guidance is now coming from multiple directions at once. I like to call this "the octopus effect" as we begin to learn to manifest spherically while being in a neutral and detached ego. This is a confusing time as all of our guidance feels to be true. We are learning to be multi-dimensional beings and think and live in multiple realties. This wrestling for clear guidance is going to stretch us and help us discover new frontiers of reality.
We have entered a new beginning that has blasted us into a higher frequency. It is an explosion of spirit and evolution. Any negative, ego driven program must and will go extinct. The past is quickly becoming a dinosaur. With patience, we will learn to understand and integrate the new higher frequencies that we are now learning to navigate. We may flip flop between the many choices out in front of us until we can hold and maintain a multi-dimensional perspective. We have the task of unpacking all that transpired during the powerful time in 2012.
We have now graduated into multi-dimensional grownups. We have grown past expecting to be saved or rescued. We are re-claiming our God given, divine potential, physically and spiritually. We are fearlessly facing the work ahead of us. We embrace being responsible human beings and accept the uncertainty and change in the enviable matrix of possibility ahead. We will use this matrix as a vehicle for our growth and awakening. We are letting go of our rigid belief systems, because we have learned that adversity and challenge comes only when we go against the flow.
We are blessed to be in a period of a great Spiritual Renaissance . . . a phase of orientation and discovery. The orientation point that was anchored in each of us in 2012 is now being slowly switched on. Remember, we just came from a fever pitched ending of a huge cycle, into calm immaculate space. Be patient with yourself now, as new cycles always begin slowly. There is no need to rush. There is lots of time to fulfill your destiny and divine purpose. We have time to act deliberately. We can take our time about everything in our lives. We can slow down and breathe the unqualified air in this new reality. We can make each decision and choice from great intent and deep contemplation. We are going to create a new and harmonic world. So no worries for now, if you feel a bit stuck. The mission was not aborted, and we didn't miss the boat; we are on board and sailing with the spirit of a new born earth star. But as you see . . . it is going to take some getting used to. Let us breathe and see where it takes us.

Bashar: What future?
Q: About the new Aquarian Age and how it’s going to be different from the Age of Pisces.
B: Well, you already know that the idea is that you are creating peace and harmony. This is what we are calling the fourth density reality. It will be where synchronicity will be commonplace. Where you will become a little more rarefied, in that way – rely less and less upon physicality. You may eat less, you may sleep less. You may see the world around you as brighter, more colorful, more energetic, in that way. You will begin to see and hear things that are beyond your senses now, for you will expand the idea of what your senses are. You will travel to the stars. There will be many things that will be representative of the idea of the new unity that you will create in fourth density reality that you are referring to as the so called Aquarian Age.
Q: What’s going to happen to people who can’t make it to the fourth density?
B: Then they will create and continue to create a parallel third density reality, but they will not reincarnate in your world.
Q: Why is this happening?
B: Why not?
Q: I don’t understand why people should be left behind.
B: It is their own choosing. They are not being left behind. It is their own choosing to experience certain ideas that they feel they need for their growth. No one is left behind, anywhere. For you are never really going anywhere. You are all right here and right now, living different ideas of what NOW means to you. It is only different, not better – that is a judgment. Do you follow me?
Q: I follow you but I don’t understand it.
B: Understand that for many thousands of years your civilization has chosen to explore the idea of forgetfulness, limitation, judgment. Now, the majority of your civilization at this time is beginning to open up to the possibility of integration, of remembering who you are, and creating this state of existence that represents that remembrance – what you call the world of peace and harmony that is your Aquarian Age.
But many individuals are here for different reasons, for their own reasons. Not all of them – although it is the vast majority that are – but not all of them are here to experience your particular world transformation. They are here to experience other types of endeavors, and so they will simply not be part and parcel of the definition of going into the Aquarian Age. It is not a loss, it is simply a definition of the path they have chosen at this time. They will experience that transformation somewhere else and “someone else.”
Q: I don’t understand why there is so much suffering and why we have to choose that kind of stuff right now.
B: Because you have chosen to experience limitation. The idea of suffering goes along with that definition. Simply, there is no need to create a more profound reason other than the fact that you can do it. Because you want to experience every single corner of what is possible in All That Is, and your society as a whole has chosen to experience to great, great degrees, the complete and total exploration of physical limitation and forgetfulness.
Understand something: it is a statement and a belief that you are strong enough to do so, that has allowed you choose and experience all that you have called suffering. But now you have experienced those ideas for many tens of thousands of years. You are now at the end of that cycle and that is why your civilization is beginning to get an understanding that it does not need to suffer any more – and that is why you are considering all these alternatives.
That should let you know that this transformational life is the life in which every single individual that is upon your planet at this time can, for him or herself, have the revelation and the realization that they do not need to suffer any more. If all the suffering that they have created has been their creation then that degree of control is what lets them know that they have the control to create no more suffering. Do you follow me?
B: It has been an experience, because you could experience it. Do not forget that it is only your ego that judges the idea. To the Higher Self, the Oversoul, every experience is a learning experience and is taken as a part of the spiritual growth.
Suffering, to the Higher Self, is not seen as intrinsically “bad.” It is seen as a choice, as an experience. Because the soul wants to experience all that it can of All That Is. Polarity, positive and negative, are parts of all existence.
So, in your strength you have chosen to have known that you are strong enough to have experienced tens of thousands of years of suffering. You are eternal anyway – what difference does it make, ultimately?
Q: Yes, what difference does it make. What is the point of it all?
B: The point is that you are the creator. You are the one looking for a purpose but recognize this: that idea of needing a specific purpose in that way, having a point to it all, is only a third density, Piscean point of view.
Understand the idea, that existence existed before the idea of purpose came along. That which existed before the idea of purpose came along, does not need a purpose to continue to exist. It exists simply because it can. And it will do what it wants to simply because
it can. The purpose of it all...
Q: It’s stupid.
B: If you choose to look at it as stupid, that is your choice. But understand that you can also look at it as: the purpose of it all, is to simply do, is to simply be, is to create, because you are a creator.
You can look at it as being stupid, or you can look at it as being an infinite creation of ecstasy... that is the whole point, to everything –
for you to create whatever point to it you want there to be, and experience it, simply because you can. Because you are the creator. That is the point. Creation creates.
Life is the only process necessary to create more life to live. Creation is eternal, you are only experiencing this idea of pointlessness because you are looking at this idea from within a linear time-frame. Once you allow yourself the recognition that all times are now, it will not seem pointless in that sense, because it will not seem that things drag on. You will view everything as being right now and view any possible reality as a choice you can have, right now.
So understand, everything is only one point. Only now. One eternal moment. And because you are the creator, in that way, you have the ability to view things as more than just now. And that is the point to this reality. To experience all the separation, limitation and forgetfulness that was possible in this particular modality to experience. Because you want to enrich the overall understanding of what All That Is, IS.
YOU, you, ALL of you, are all the different ways All That Is has of looking at itself, of realizing itself, of self-creating. That is the point, because creation is eternal and infinite. It is up to you whether you view the eternalness within ecstasy or within negativity.
Q: Well, why is it that it seems like there is no choice?
B: Because as we have said: the choice of choosing limitation is the choice of choosing that you forget you created it. That is why it seems that way – but that is the experience you wanted. Otherwise, if you did not forget that you created it, you would not be able to experience some of the limited viewpoints you have experienced on this planet.
The purpose was to experience limitation. If you cannot forget you are the creator, you cannot experience limitation.
But the idea – what you would call in your civilization a Catch 22, is that the choosing of that limitation brings with it a scenario that in your terms, makes it difficult to remember you created it.
Now you are remembering. These are the very beginnings, the awakenings, the birth of a new idea of your TOTAL mass consciousness. It is waking up and remembering that it created the idea to begin with.
Q: Isn’t it true that we get trapped in physicality?
B: Only in a sense. But you hold the key. You have always held the key. The trap is in forgetting that you held the key. Now you are remembering – so you are not trapped.
And to look at physical reality as a trap, is what makes it so. Physical reality is just as valid as any other level of existence, just as beautiful, just as creative. If you choose to look at physical reality as a trap, it is no wonder that many of you get caught and caught up, in victim-hood.
If you choose to view physical reality as one of the expressions of All That Is, in beauty and harmony and synchronistic vibration with everything else, then your physical reality will become Heaven on Earth. Do you follow me?
B: Thank you. Pleasant dreams.
Q: Thank you.
There is a change, a Shift under way that is affecting every aspect of our third dimensional reality. This Shift is so far-reaching that our limited imagination cannot begin to grasp the transition and change we are now in the midst of experiencing. This Shift is affecting every aspect of life on the planet; political, social and economic structures, the environment, every institution, the wars, how we view our relationships, our work, every thought we think and every feeling we feel. It is altering Time, our memory, our DNA, the wiring of our physical and emotional bodies, our beliefs, our perceptions of good and bad, right and wrong and especially our awareness of what is possible.
The Shift is composed of huge waves of Light which hold massive amounts of information and instructions. These waves are re-wiring our DNA, upgrading the body’s physical, emotional and mental systems. These waves of Light are activating the fourth and fifth dimensional chakras, aligning us with a higher awareness. This Shift is providing new understandings of how to once again live in harmony with each other, the environment and All That Is. However, between this new “Heaven on Earth” and where we currently exist, there is transition.
This transition, as exciting and wonderful as it is, is creating difficulties for many. These difficulties are occurring as this pace quickens, and we continue to hold our third dimensional beliefs and habits as truths. We continue to argue for the right and wrongs, judge others for their actions or fix them because “we know better.” These actions belong to the third dimension and they must be released. As long as we continue to hold these limitations, we will experience the affects of this Shift within our physical and emotional bodies. These affects are known as Ascension Symptoms.
Symptoms, such as,, dizziness, confusion, loss of focus, headaches, fatigue, digestion discomfort, anxiety, etc.
You may be experiencing Time going faster. There is more on your plate and less time to complete it. You may be losing aspects of your memories (no, it’s not Alzheimer’s). Things that were once very important are no longer as important. And most of us are feeling a heightened sense of distraction coupled with an emotional sense that something is just not right.
As we argue for our limitations and hold on to the old beliefs which no longer support us, we create a resistance or blockage within our four-body system creating these discomforts. The third dimensional reality as we have known it is shifting. It is becoming far more grand, aligned and balanced, moving into a Higher Consciousness. Humanity is waking up and as it does, the old structures that have supported duality, maintained separation and have controlled the masses with fear are crumbling.
As this new Light finds its way into every corner of darkness, those that live within the darkness are beginning to recoil, react and become very noisy. They will scream the loudest to maintain the status quo. They are creating imbalance, wars, economic failures and many other distractions to prevent this Shift from occurring. They will, for a short time, become very loud, generating much fear in their attempt to avoid this Shift. As this new Light flows within each of us, we are now receiving new information, opportunities and choices which were not available to us in the past. These choices are now allowing each of us to step out of the fear, distraction and separation. By grounding, realigning your energy fields, stabilizing your attention point and focus, you will keep the bodies safe, successful and happy during the transition.
Grounding is something almost everyone has considered. But grounding is not a thought; it is an action, a tool to dissipate noisy thoughts, anxiety and undesirable emotions that run through our bodies. If you would close your eyes and in your imagination create an image of a beam of Light, a line of energy, a tree trunk, a pipe or a chain. Just pretend. Then connect one end to the lowest tip of your spine, the first chakra. Feel the connection. Make this real. Then drop the other end of the line to the center of the earth. The center of the earth is not very far away. See the line of energy strongly connect to the center of the earth. With your imagination reach down and tug on both ends and feel the connection. Now, expand the line to about eight inches in diameter and give it the command to activate and become magnetic. Take a breath and notice the relaxation.
The command to activate allows the grounding line, a natural part of your body’s operating system, to release thoughts and emotions that do not belong to you, but constantly affect you. These thoughts and emotions flow through the unprotected energy field, stimulating emotions, creating reaction and discomfort. Interestingly, the majority of thoughts you think belong to the world surrounding you and have very little to do with you at all. But once they are in your space they create a distraction, distort your attention and direct your life. Grounding minimizes this noise.
Surrounding you are a number of energy fields, one of which you know as the aura. The aura gathers, retains and files every thought, word and action that occurs within, through and around you. In other words it holds a lot of information, much of which has very little to do with you. This energy field is also an antenna. It attracts frequencies of thought. If you can manage the antenna, you can manage what the antenna attracts. Constructing this antenna around you creates a powerful energy field which aligns with the information of the Shift and your own internal guidance system. In Sacred Geometry there are five forms known as Platonic Solids which hold unique characteristics. One is the Octahedron. It is one four-sided pyramid pointing up with a second four-sided pyramid connected at the base and pointing down.
Find a point about two feet in front of you and, with your imagination, place a dot there. Then place another dot two feet directly behind you and two more dots, two feet to the left and right of you. Place a dot about two feet above your head and another below your feet. Six dots. This is an experiential, not a mental, exercise. Feel each of the dots and see them with your imagination. Now, from the point above your head draw four lines connecting to the four dots surrounding you. Then connect each of those four dots creating a four-sided pyramid. See it. Feel it around you. Next, from the point below your feet, draw four lines connecting up to the four dots surrounding you. This will create a sense of containment.
This containment is not a wall or a defense system; it is a safe vessel that allows you to move around without becoming affected by the noise. It is also an antenna, which aligns with the Light and Infinite Intelligence being transmitted during this Shift. The Octahedron creates an alignment with all that you are and simply filters out that which you are not.
Experience and play with these tools. As simple as they are, they will alter your conscious reality and allow you to enjoy the unfolding Shift.
Why do we celebrate a New Year? Most of us celebrate a New Year to refresh our posture (internally and externally), to clarify our intentions, and fine-tune our desires. Some of us celebrate a new year to improve our state of mind, to alleviate bad habits, and make promises to ourselves, and others, we hope we will keep.
Sunday, February 10th, China's New Year, the year of the snake, is a reminder . . . to REFRESH and RENEW our commitments, as the snake is a symbol of wisdom and of healing. The Yin snake offers us the opportunity to tune into our intuitive natures, connect with our inner source and weed out the superfluous. I believe, the pressures we are experiencing, the illnesses we are manifesting are all due to mental, physical and emotional stress.
Let this day, of China's new year, remind us of the importance to quiet the mind, turn off the computer, the phone, meditate and read books that uplift the soul. When we nourish ourselves in this way, we heal very quickly.
Decisions have always created tension and added stress to my life, perhaps because I am a Gemini and I see both sides of a situation. The intensity, however, has tripled, due to the acceleration and energetic shift we are going through. In addition to meditation, this is when I am grateful for the I Ching, the book of Changes, China's ancient oracle.
So, on behalf of this auspicious day, I'd like to thank China for birthing this magical, mysterious book. I'd like to thank Richard Wilhelm for translating this relic from Chinese to German and Cary F. Baynes for translating it from German to English.
You see, the sixty-four hexagrams that inhabit this book have brought tremendous solace into my life. Its 740 pages have provided me with insights that have changed my point of view and provided answers to questions I didn't even know I had. This book . . . still . . . has the uncanny ability to dig into the crevices of my crusty heart and nebulous soul and show me what logic alone can not reveal. It has saved me from making expensive mistakes and steered me in directions I had no intention of following.
Filled with symbolism and metaphors, this constant companion has shown me how each hexagram can carve its message into my bones, and ease the pain that so often erupts when I can't make a decision. Oh, the times I have taken refuge in this book!
The I Ching has been the catalyst for spurring me on to write my novel, Pushing Upward. Sandra Billings, the 21 year-old heroine, reveals some of those challenges.... But believe me... there have been many more.
People have asked me over the years.... What is the I Ching? How does it work? How does it help you in your life? Instead of going into the relevance of this oracle, and making this newsletter longer than it already is, please go to (www.pushingupward.com). There, you will find historical references and other I Ching reference books you can read and take your time to indulge in.
Adele Aldridge, founder of http://www.ichingmeditations.com, says:
"The I Ching is a profound divination tool, used for aligning one's self with those elemental forces, so that one may "swim the way the river is flowing."
The I Ching is based on the premise that everything in the universe arises out of two forces - Yin and Yang -
masculine and feminine forces. The concept of this philosophy is that if you follow the way of nature you will find the right way and right time for action in one's own life. By consulting I Ching we recognize ourselves as part of the flux of nature and know that the universe and we, are one organism."
Why should we care about Chinese New Year?
To quote Nielsonwire:
"Asians comprise a rapidly growing segment of the U.S. They are very well educated, affluent, and extremely media savvy. Asians are expected to continue to grow rapidly as a share of U.S. population. Although they will likely be the third race or ethnic group by size (behind Hispanics and African Americans), they will make up a significant share of population over the next few decades. The fusion of Asian culture into the American mainstream will continue to gain importance and will increasingly gain focus from makers and sellers of consumer products, particularly in West Coast markets and those of the Northeast."
So, we need to care.
Interesting to note . . . many of the Chinese men, women and children I have spoken to have never heard of the I Ching, particularly the youth. It was not taught in their schools or talked about in their homes. In other words, this rich resource, that is so much a part of their own heritage is missing from their knowledge base.
Perhaps, my book, Pushing Upward,
The Willhelm/Baynes version of the I Ching,
and Paul O'Brien's new, modern, Visionary I Ching will change that.
Gifts for you for Chinese New Year
From Alan Steinfeld of New Realities talks to Cobra, a code name for a freedom fighter contactee from the Pleidians working for the liberation of the light forces on planet Earth... His voice is also disquised because he needs to keep his identity secret at this time...
Part One of transcript below:
Nobody know when event will be. At a moment close to this, a very strong energy impulse will come from source from the galactic centre towards Earth.. ET races are surrounding Earth in their light ships. They will receive this impulse and send it to the resistance beneath the surface of the Earth and the resistance will relay this to Earth surface dwellers,. The cabal leaders will be arrested and removed from positions of power. At the same time, a strong energy flash will happen to assist humanity through this process. It will happen quite quickly, in a matter of days and a new society will start to be constructed. It will be announced on the media, the light forces will take over the media and people will receive instructions from their own TV. There will be internal changes as well as external, humans will be able to be more loving beings. We are approaching the ? Second Renaissance and this involves 1/Return of the Goddess 2/Operation ?
Greenlight to distribute ideas of spirituality to all humans. There are Lightworkers on the Surface of the Earth who have had many incarnations as a training ground and their awakening if getting faster., more are awaking. 21st Dec is an excellent opportunity to step forward but one yet knows what will happen. More intel can be released after Dec 5th as some things will be de classified after this time.
The 11.11 gate started in 1992 and is a code for inter dimensional doorway with completion on Nov 22nd .Each step brings a higher vibration and this is an opportunity once in 25000 years , The cabal manipulation of humans is physical, eg financial system and non physical by influencing mind, emotions and energy fields causing humans to fall deeply asleep. Awakening involves our own higher self and the understanding of the extent of the control and taking action about this.
As the critical mass of humanity awakes, they cannot exert control much longer. In the past there were galactic wars and light forces have liberated planet after planet . The dark forces had decided to cut themselves off from source, which is why they have to utilise the energy of others.
The chose Earth as their ' home' and 25,000 years ago quarantined Earth off. Since then few light forces have been able to make contact and then only with the permission of the cabal. What is now happening is that light forces are advancing daily on the physical and non physical planes. The archons are given the choice to surrender and will then be helped to access the light. Those that do not will be transformed in the galactic sun. When the dark forces are gone, it will be a relief for humanity as much suffering is archon induced. Humans will not need to struggle/fight for survival as slaves, abundance will be common place. New technology,transportation and healing will be revealed followed by first contact hich will be an official diplomatic event. Cobra goes through the weekly liberation meditation.
Awakening is more than feeling strange as we transform into new. We find ourselves acting and reacting differently:
- Offensively loving all - loving our Creator, loving others, loving ourselves– loving.
- Forbearing in the face of an insult and forgiving / pardoning to the point of erasing the evil suffered.
- Seeking peace with all - complete absence of anger.
- Naturally acting more patient - never hurrying - live today moment to moment.
- Speaking only positive, loving and kind words – truthfulness in all speech and actions.
- Avoiding complaining as nothing is good or bad – rather everything is perfect and as it should be.
- Observantly meeting the needs of other first - unbridled generosity
- Humble, a servant of all. Surrendered to the will of the Creator.
- Engaging in a simple lifestyle- no personal desire for fame or wealth.
- We find we don’t care what happens – knowing …everything is the plan of the Creator.
- No worrying or being anxious for anything as we are content with the creator’s provision. Fearless.
- No desire to control others, - .bending our will – letting everyone else have their way.
- Unbounded joy – smile and laugh more than you do anything else.
- Thankfulness / Gratitude - Say Thank You more than you say anything at all
- Understanding that no one is foolish or wise - everyone is a creation of the Creator and they are exactly where they should be in their development - therefore, we avoid all judgment, comparison or criticism of our Creator’s creation.
- Coming to enjoy the quiet of meditation and being close to a natural environment.
- Desiring to live a separated life of holiness and purity unto the creator.
- Acting as an open vessel of prophetic utterance and miracles from the creator.
- Becoming infinite consciousness and awareness without identity……..
Oh, how I wish I had ALL of these symptoms…

As a way of introducing you to my work, I am including this excerpt from my new channeled text, The Book of Love and Creation. Future posts will contain channeled teachings from my guides on life, spiritual growth, relationship and the future of humanity.
Introduction: The Roof
One night when I was twenty- five years old, I climbed up to the roof of the building where I lived in Chelsea and asked whatever God there was to wake me up.
I had been raised something of an atheist on Manhattan’s Upper West Side, and I had been taught that people who had a spiritual life were perhaps deluded, or ignorant, and not to be taken seriously.
But I had come to a point in my life where the need for something else had become apparent. And so I asked. I can’t say exactly what happened on the roof. I wonder, still, if I didn’t perhaps induce it myself in some way, but I had an experience that left me mute and paralyzed and swaying in an energy that seemed to come from the pit of my being and course through my body and out the top of my head. Shortly thereafter, I began seeing little lights around people, like fireflies.
I began studying a form of energy healing to gain a context for what I was now beginning to experience and found that when I had my hands on people, I began to hear things for them— names, fragments of information, phrases that seemed to emerge from the chatter in my own mind. What I heard made no sense to me, but made perfect sense to the client. In this way, I began to evolve as a clairaudient and later as a conscious channel. My guides, a consortium of beings from a higher level of consciousness, were here to teach.
I convened a small group in my apartment for weekly sessions with my guides and found that the information that came through me as I channeled was accompanied by an energy that was profoundly loving and physically palpable. This went on for many years, quietly, as I continued my life as a playwright and academic.
In 2009, my guides announced, quite unexpectedly, that they had a book to write, and two days later began to dictate the text of I Am the Word, which they described as a treatise on the manifestation of Christ in man. They stated that the book was an energy transmission that worked directly on its readers to bring them into accordance with the frequency of the Word, which they have defined simply as “the energy of God in action.” The dictation took two and a half weeks. They promised that I Am the Word was the first book of three, the mission text, and that other books would follow.
The Book of Love and Creation was dictated shortly after I Am the Word was in the hands of its publisher. I had not wanted to channel another book so soon—a relationship that I had valued had ended badly, and I wasn’t keen on returning to my role as a student of and channel for my guides, whose agenda seemed, at times, a bit loftier than my personal happiness.
Victoria Nelson, a colleague of mine at Goddard College, had been the “active listener” or audience for I Am the Word and was eager to learn what more the guides had to say. I reluctantly agreed to call her for a brief check-in to see what the guides had planned, and they took the opportunity to deliver the prologue of the book.
The Book of Love and Creation, although it bears my name, was not written by me. I am a conscious channel, and the book was dictated, verbally, often at lightning speed, over thirty days of sittings conducted over a month and a half. I called Victoria at her home in Berkeley at the appointed hour, closed my eyes, and spoke the words that were given to me until I was told to stop. The recordings were then transcribed and the transcriptions were proofread. The amount of editing was so small as to be completely negligible—a dropped word here and there, a misspoken syllable. What you have is the teaching as it was delivered.
I am a student of my guides’ work, not the teacher. I have always been a somewhat private man, and now that my work as a channel has become known I am often called to work with others. As the guides promised, I Am the Word has found its readership, and I continue to receive e-mail from people around the world whose lives have been changed by its teachings and who claim the shared experience of being worked with energetically as they engage with the text.
I am grateful for the work that comes through me. I am grateful for the privilege of sitting in an energy that feels so loving and strong and can be felt by others—often those who have never felt energy or who were, like me, raised to believe that such things cannot be possible.
But it is possible. The work is here. As my guides continue to remind me, this is the time, we have choice, and we are being asked again and again to wake up and claim our divine birthright.
If you are new to the work of the guides, this book will be your introduction. If you have already worked with their teachings, you will find this to be a continuation and a deepening of them. There is more to come.
