Paul Lowe has spent his life investigating the maximum potential for human beings and has found it to be vast, limitless and available to everybody. For forty years he travelled around the world, encouraging people to move beyond what is normally thought of as possible or impossible. He has a remarkable facilty to show people what they are not seeing about themselves, and shares his insights with caring, and perhaps most importantly, humour.
Since retiring from public life in 2007, Paul has continued to send regular emails to a group of of people that were involved in his work and a few others, responding to our state of consciousness, situations in the world and the evolution of our human destiny.
This blog is NewRealities attempt to bring Paul's observations to a greater audience. Feel free to post any comments about what you read here.

A very neat sharing from Jay:
I have a friend who loves the Desiderata and is very fond of its
closing line, "Strive to be happy."
Yesterday I took a quick look at that Yoooge site, which looks
interesting although I still haven't followed up on it, but it
appears to be about Happiness being a primary point or goal of life,
which is something I happen to agree with.
So I sent the link to my friend, since he loves the idea of "Strive
to be happy" so much. A brief email exchange followed and I wanted
to share one of the messages I sent to him with you, to see what you
think. Here it is:
"You may or may not know that I had a few encounters with what I have
to call enlightenment, based on what I've read about it. What I
discovered is that there is an internal core of complete bliss that
we are usually not aware of. My observation of my experience was that
you can't get there by striving. It appears naturally when all the
other stuff that makes you you gets stripped away. My belief is that
this rarely happens because by the time we're old enough to think
it's already too late -- we are already designing ourselves in the
image of people around us.
"It's a long story and I really don't want to get any further into it
here. Striving to be happy is a great attitude but what I call real
happiness can only be experienced in the absence of striving, or
anything else that takes conscious effort. The real stuff is
underneath everything conscious."
today I consciously realize a new
tendency in me. Spontaneously I
sometimes ask myself, if what I think
in a moment is really true. I have not
studied Byron Katie. Yes, in her teaching
she asks this question. Bu me, it just
happened, this question.
When I tell myself for example: "oh, I
am not able, or this is not my style, or
I'd like that". Then: "Hey, is that really true?"
And often I come to the result:"I don't know,
for I don't know who is talking. Is it fear,
laziness, automatic behavior?
I don't know. So I look, in this stillness.
I thought, that maybe then the motivation
to do anything would stop. But deeper and
finer, on a total other level, there is something.
I know it's there. Beyond this. And if not,
then it is here.
Subject: something has shifted
yesterday, my girlfriend (of 9 years) mentioned that she spent the night
in bed with a former lover recently. i immediately noticed, and expressed
to her everything that was coming up. fear. resentment. i noticed 'victim'
stories trying to form.. my mind trying to piece together stories about
how she is hurting me.. then some minutes passed. i noticed that intense
energy that i was feeling (that i call fear) slowly pass.. evaporate.. and
i felt love for her again. no big deal. no trace of resentment anywhere. i
could see it clearly; their relationship has nothing to do with me. i felt
relief. and surprised. it might be that something has shifted. with heart
I woke up during the Satori held in Bali in 1997 (held with Clare
I didn't call it anything in particular that day.
I didn't even see till last year that it was an 'awakening' event
(sort of left my memory).
As I laid in the bed, I started seeing deeper and deeper into myself.
Like a tunnel forming.
Something seemed to break, a pattern of some sort,
and I went through to another level of being-ness.
This happened over a few hours.
It was a fantastic feeling, insight and shift for me.
Suddenly it felt like was being pulled into expanding rings of energy.
I just kept getting pulled deeper and deeper within myself.
Like I was full of space and all of time was laid out before me.
It was exhilarating feeling!
And they, these burst of energy within the expanding rings held
Information for me. But at the time it made little sense to me.
I didn't understand how to receive information from this source at that
Then, I suddenly realized I was 'god' and I knew who I am.
The state shifted into a different state after that.
I realized I didn't want to deal with the outside world.
I had already realized I had an extra energy about me, like a subtle
twin energy. So the twin took my place (sounds strange)
and did all the talking for me.
I, this person, spoke again about 2 years later, when I was more prepared
to deal with 'reality' as it is.
I have never felt led to tell anyone until this year.
So now I am opening up about it as I finally settle into permanent state
awareness and nothing is shaking me loose from that.
Time just goes by faster and faster and with very few thoughts happening,
I just am now. I rarely do anything anymore.
Most things are starting to get done for me by others.
It is a very different life style than what 'normal' people would choose
I see many times people write and say they have had beautiful openings.
Some even have had Satoris and awakenings.
So I know you know what you say is very nearly perfect (and accurate).
I've been experiencing a state of being awake since 1997 and it just keeps
expanding and opening me. And there are other states that have occurred.
It has been a revealing time for me.
I started receiving healing gifts a few years ago.
Then I got the gift of remote viewing.
Lately I am making contact with other species that also dwell in nearby
Tonight I am making a connection to the Sasquatch (I can give you a link
if you like to know them as well).
I have made beautiful friends, though they don't exist in our reality.
Life is beautiful and it just keeps adding to the beauty index.
You told me in 1996, in Ft. Lauderdale, that if I took what I needed from
(of life), I would keep finding more of what I needed, each time I
something out. That is indeed the truth. As new tools for me to utilize,
seeing into other realities come, I can do more and more that other's
And so funny that I thought you meant money would come. Never ever
consider their were etheric tools.
As I keep experiencing more oneness (the feeling of it comes through,
more and more) I keep settling down into a more permanent relaxed state.
I seem to be able to get more and more done from this space.
And as you can see, I can describe my experiences more and more, as
they rarely translate easily into the physical form.
I am not always in the state of oneness. I don't know if that occurs,
if you can stay in that perfect one-ness or is it a reminder for us?
I just don't know. Feeling one-ness is still a newer experience and time
tell me more of how to talk about it fully.
It is a privilege to have gotten to take your classes.....
and to hear your words now (on New Realities/your new website).
I wouldn't be here without you Paul.
I am eternally grateful to you for that.
Neat question you ask. Mind or Intuition.
As far as I can see there are different answers on different levels.
I suppose the ultimate is to just go with what is.
I have found that if *I* make a choice then it comes from the old -
so no evolving.
Of course this needs some courage - for who knows what will happen!
Need to get: choiclessness is not apathetic.
Needs presence - then let happen what seems to need to happen.
I think the ego can think it is influencing an outcome,
and in one way, it is - but it may be that the influence is temporary
and eventually whatever needed to happen will happen anyway.
Could be that Free Will is an illusion.
I have just been attempting to share with someone about watching.
To try and explain the unexplainable I came up with:
There is - The Source.
The Automatic Behavior.
At the source there is only - The Source. One.
In the middle is a conscious feeling of
preferring things to be a certain way.
In the automatic behavior level there is the
Watching, is just that - watching.
It watches not only the being choice-less, but also the choices.
It just does not get in the way, and unconditionally includes - everything.
The Automatic Behavior - interferes - all the time - in everything.
And constantly messes up, then complains.
Lots of complaint, and very little appreciative gratefulness.
Somewhere, we are always awake to what is appropriate.
We usually only say yes if it is what our *old self* thinks it wants.
Let me know how you get on with this.
Just a few snippets. Sorry there isn't time and space for all.
Thank you all for your love, appreciation, and donations.
Exclusion & Conflict In Relations. All I can say is Wow!
An amazing clip and so true. I have had an issue with confrontation all my
life. I never understood the need for, yet was often in a relationship or am in
one. It as if hearing the truth of what (Paul) said woke me up and and me
realise the problem with my marriage and all my relationships is honesty and
integrity but mostly with myself.
Thank you to all that help proved these messages and to Paul himself.
I love to see and hear all of Paul´s news and sharings on "new
I often feel so utterly connected to things
beeing shared, it makes me weep and tremble.
when sometimes I feel everything is too
foggy, and then I take time to listen to an
audio of Paul, and really letting it through,
then it often happens, that in me happens
like sort of harmonising again. It talks to me,
even in the things he does not say. It is how
it is said too. And then like a shift can happen.
I'm finding the wisdom Paul chooses to share in these tapes soooo relevant
to what's arising for me. I mean he could have said so many things, how
did he happen to say THAT just now!
I am find it a great blessing, to get your talks, comments and audios per
I love your audios, I have downloaded them all and I am listening to
them nearly every day, choosing one which is helping me in a particular
situation which I am in.
In your audios you become more and more concise and emphatic and when I
listen to them it penetrates all my cells and that pushes me to be more
aware of what I am
doing the whole day.
I thank you so much, that you take the trouble to do all that and I hope
Seems you have had some excellent insights. Lovely.
I am very happy for you.
So one of your insights is realising there is more to this than you
"Seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all else will be added on to you."
Good. As you say, there is a lot to this - in fact, it is a major key to
What the mind usually says is: "When I have …then, I will seek …"
And that is totally the opposite to what is the most efficient/intelligent.
I know it does not seem that way.
When we have enough money, and/or a loving relationship,
then we think we will feel secure enough to have time
to put into expanding our potential consciousness.
And it doesn't seem to work that way.
Attempting to be safe, secure and predictable
becomes an addiction, which like all addictions,
has to be fed with more and more. (Inflation!)
The fact seems to be, that when the transition happens,
everything that is appropriate for us comes to us.
And what doesn't come, is not appropriate.
If you have made this transition then I am very, very happy for you -
as that is the main thing I have been attempting to share with you -
consciousness first. The other way around just does not work -
except as a preparation - to realising it does not work!
Thank you for keeping reminding me of your gratefulness,
and what us spending time together has brought to you.
I am very happy to have our loving and mutually appreciative connection.
I am sending you lots of love
Short excerpt from an Audio:
You cant change yourself. You cant do anything.
Anything you DO will be done from the old ideas, and produce old results.
What you can do, is be more aware of your behaviour and your habits.
Who is the one who is becoming more aware of the behaviour?
That is the one we are interested in - the one who just watches.
If this part is just watches, and it is aware, you don¹t have to change
anything. If that illuminated self, that divine self, does not approve of what the
behaviour is saying, and it is aware, the behaviour will change on its own.
If you are changing it, you are changing it with the same energy you are
doing it. The mind is attempting to change the mind, and that wont work.
If you see it from this other place and you say: ah yes, I see that,
that is not what I mean, that is not my intention - it will change on its
own. It will just drop away. But you don¹t do it, it does you.
We need to see ourselves more clearly. We need to hear, feel and sense
ourselves. It can be very embarrassing when you are starting to see your
There is something else that is aware of behaviour, if you want it to be.
And if we are unconditional, which means we are not trying to please or
upset somebody, we are not trying to then we will change.
Change will happen and life will become sweeter and sweeter.
You seem to be unique in the breadth of your vision
and the number of approaches about which you are informed.
Over and over you seem to know at least as much
as the expert to whom you are talking. Sometimes, more.
In this interview you are especially alive and juicy. Lovely.
"Not realising - we don't really want change."
"Don't believe everything you think."
"Your thoughts are not you."
"Who are you after you stop being who you think you are"
"We see what we expect to see."
"All around us, behind a very thin vail, are many different realities."
