In this country we love our autonomy. We enjoy the personal freedom of self-governance. We feel strongly about our right to make choices of our own volition. We defend our civil liberties and feel it is our prerogative to behave, feel, and think as we do. It could be said that we love our autonomy to the degree that it has become entitlement. We feel entitled to behave and think as we do regardless of the overall result. Yet self-governance in it’s purest form implies an understanding of the consequences of our actions for ourselves, and for others. Implicit in the tenants of self-governance is our interconnectivity and dependence within our community, our country, and now most certainly, our world. Indeed, in this now, it is imperative that as we self-govern our behaviors, our emotions, and our thinking, we maintain a balance between serving ourselves and serving others. For, pure self-governing, pure autonomy is only as good as the intention it serves. During this crucial time, it becomes important to ascertain our intention. Is our autonomy pure? Is it balanced? Are we accountable? Do we know that what we do, feel, and think affects the totality of the self and others physically, emotionally and spiritually? During this time of pandemic challenge, are we vested in the realm of the divine global cooperative enterprise that has been thrust upon us? Are we responsible, (able to respond), to the challenge and privilege of our autonomy? For as an autonomous, self-governed, interconnected, and responsible being, you are the greatest gift you offer. As you are one, you are all. What you do, feel, and think affects the world. Now more than ever, you are the world. You are the hope and you are the outcome.

Mind issues mind thought, which is trigger. Sometimes trigger comes from a belief system or something larger like a running system but all mind thought triggers a download of chemistry, which pours throughout your cellular makeup, producing a reaction, (ie: feeling good, or feeling bad). To realize, (real eyes) that mind is issuing mind thought, mind fart, poo gas, that mind is separate from you, that it is in fact a device, a mind, which is simply issuing mind thought, (not some empirical data, or truth, but mind fart!, poo gas!!), is the beginning of recognizing, re-cognizing that you have a choice. You, yes you, can choose the mind thought, mind fart, poo gas, which serves. And only those that serve. You do not, do not, do not, ever again, need to accept a thought that is less than, unworthy of…

If I am to transcend this now, I must investigate, understand, and know this now to the fullest extent of my being. Transcendence is not ignorance, unawareness, or denial of this present awareness. It is the use of this present level of now as foundational, that in fully accepting it, I might rise to the next level of deeper investigation and understanding. True transcendence is the ability to lift oneself and others from ignorance and unawareness by perceiving historically what has been, and moving together toward what can be. Firmly rooted in what is presently now, we rise to the level of what can be, made manifest by our willingness to unflinchingly examine the truth.
True enlightenment accepts with full awareness the challenge of the most difficult truths and finds the way with compassion, patience, willingness, perseverance, and love.
From the beginning of March I knew something was wrong. I had the flu. I had a slight fever, a cough, and a sore throat. By March 9th I told friends that I was being cautious. I cancelled classes. I kept an eye on the news. I slept a lot. I could not, and have not been able to write. I don’t seem to have the energy to think critically. This virus has zapped my energy. It has depressed me physically, emotionally and spiritually a little too. There have been days that I felt so weak, I was unable to move one foot in front of the other. There were days when my chest felt very heavy and my rib cage felt very constricted. There were days when I was really scared that I might have to go to a hospital. My greatest fear was that if I went to the hospital, I would never come back. At my son’s direction, I called a tele doc and got a prescription, for cough medicine and an inhaler. Despite my symptoms, I was not allowed to test for the virus because I could not verify that I had been exposed. Thankfully, the heaviness in my chest subsided a bit. My rib cage stopped feeling so tight with every breath. Still whenever I stood from a seated position, I would become so dizzy I felt I might fall. Finally, almost a month after I first felt ill, I qualified for testing. At the testing site, I sat in the car with my husband. With masks on, he waited with me in line so I could do the oral swab. Now we are waiting again. After a week, I have no results. I continue to quarantine as this virus continues to alter my life and the lives of those around me. I don’t care so much about the quarantine. I love the blue sky, the birds chirping and the sounds and smells of a cleaner, brighter Los Angeles. Some days it has been nice just to sit in the backyard and look at the beautiful clouds overhead. I have a great respect for the life force. I have a great respect for this virus. I want to live. So does the virus. Indeed, after 6 weeks there are still days that I feel heaviness in my chest. There are still days that I feel tightness in my ribcage when I breathe. Today I am tired. I have a sore throat, the telltale dry cough, and dizziness whenever I stand. Yet, as I write this the sound of sirens whistle through my neighborhood as a constant reminder, that I am one of the lucky ones. I am definitely one of the lucky ones. I have a home, a loving husband, and an incredible body that has gently fought to bring me back to good health. Now, especially now that I am relatively well, and getting my strength back, my social responsibility is clear. My case is mild, still this has been a long journey and I do not wish this on anyone. I must do everything in my power not to pass this along. I will not be the bullet that rips through someone else’s life. And while this experience for many of us has been about fear, for me it has also been about love. I love and appreciate so much about my life, about my husband, my friends, my family and the people in my community. I love and appreciate all of you, and I truly want to be of service. So, I will continue to quarantine. I will continue to wash my hands. I will continue to go out only once every two weeks to buy groceries. And when I must go out, I will wear a mask in public and use social distancing. I will do this for as long as it takes because I want you to know that I love you. I want you to know that I appreciate the blessing of this life and the blessing of you in this life with me. Be safe out there. Please take good care. I love you, Adrienne
Can you identify your beliefs and the beliefs of others? Do the beliefs serve? The virus has a belief. Is the belief aligned with reality, or is it aligned with a concept, or construct, or a body of beliefs? The virus has a belief. If you can identify the belief, if you can assess if it serves or if it does not serve, if you know what the virus believes, then you have clarity. Then you are using belief instead of the belief using you. The virus has a belief. Believe. Do this with your heart. Do this with your head below your heart. Do this with total total awareness. This is what it means to live as a Warrior of Love and Miracle.
We are living in such incredible times. So much change. So much challenge. We will all become stronger and better for this, if that is what we choose. I choose that for myself. In my heart I choose that for all of you too.
What would happen if you held space in your heart, in your life, in your spirit, soul, for the intelligence, the natural intelligence that is the knowing, deep in being, which is connected to source, to love? Because culture, (cult you are) will rail against you, threaten, shame and speak from lower energy to shut you down. And when they do, can you stand, arms out, continuing to hold space? And if you could, even for one moment, energetically bare witness, what would happen? What if you held space for life, heart, going beyond the mind, the paradigm, construct, present meme, to risk self fully, be of service, establishing fierce presence and unflagging commitment to dream? What if you lived like that?
Sarcasm like violence, like war, is a cruel master. The ripping of flesh, it cuts both ways. Be careful. Stay away from the tiniest quip, flip remark, lest you hurt yourself and others. Be kind. Be respectful. Hold onto your sensitivity, your awareness that life is precious. This is your heart. Take care, allow others and yourself to dream and bless it all a thousand times.
Amberly Foreman at Carry-Le-Rouet, France
Each of us whole beings, our wholeness comprised of individual, discreet, yet not separate, but interrelated units, cells, creating, nerve, brain, body, spirit, person is systemic. And further as we gather together as bodies, persons, spiritual beings, we create an even larger systemic, covering the earth and extending, due to our crystalline nature, an organized whole which we call the Kosmos. Still our egos, our reliance on self as persistent as it is, as real as it may seem is not only imaginary but complete folly. We are not alone, nor are we autonomous, far from it, as causal beings, we are only relevant when we engage in our wholeness, which is the interaction with other, ourselves and our planet. Our ability to transcend and inform ourselves based on the health of our universe, seeing itself back as an indication and the necessity for change…

When you make a commitment and you show up, you are signaling the universe. Totality is looking for men and women of their word. So when this theatre needs to be built or that flock of birds nesting ground needs saving, it knows who to call. When you are able to respond, be responsible, when you show up, so does your life. The universe conspires to make things happen, because it knows you. It knows you will respond. That’s how dreams come true. One commitment after another.
On this day, we honor a man who believed. He saw a non-violent world and spoke of his vision without fear or apology. He had a dream. This dream compelled him to change the hearts of a nation. As we reflect on who he was and what he stood for, it is my most humble belief that he would have us remember, that we too must dream. Today, will you stand? Will you believe and allow your visions to manifest despite fear? Will you allow yourself to be moved to action? Are you ready to announce to yourself, to the world, that you, you have a dream? Will you honor Martin Luther King, Jr today? Will you dream with the fierce pride your heart deserves? Will you dream?
Inside this box; the mind, rules and laws, beliefs, contracts with culture, (cult you are), opinions, judgment, there’s no air, legs cramped, my neck hurts and my shoulders are up to my ears. My third eye, the intuit, heart wanders, making me stand, chin above the corners. I’m ready. Or not. Looking out makes me dizzy. Circles, organisms, real life out there and when I breath the oxygen floats like water, moving, living, alive. Shit. If I jump I die. But if I don’t jump this mind crap is going to kill me. Die to my old self or plummet into the abyss. Death or death. I gotta jump. My life is out there. Liquid. Flowing, beyond the box, beyond the mind. JUMP. For fuck sake JUMP.
It circles, quiet, the barest emission of air, so sleek the sun glints off it, as if off a window. Nearly unseen, yet there, palpable, inherent, missable, yet present. Organically we respond, allowing it, believing it, download it as feeling, as truth. The mind. That nuisance, creating angst and fear. Idiotic. That I feed it. Today it fasts. Today, I let my heart guide, my love illuminate the dark.
The mind wants to keep you safe; ‘Last time we were here, you got hurt. Don’t,’ It shouts, ‘I mean it. DON’T!’ Beyond mind, around the corner, down the hallway, adjacent to your spirit is the window. Open it, feel the breeze. That’s possibility. Beyond the lie of, the fear of the mind is intuition, being, opportunity, your life. Go beyond your mind. Open the window. Breathe.
If thoughts were hammers, words the nails, we’d know we were building something, we’d know that which we thought, spoke, was creation, village, city, country, world, universe. Watch what you think, what you speak and see construct, foundation, studs, support beam, barn raising, community. What house will you create, what structure, plywood, brick, glass, plexi or shingle will you choose? Will you give it your most mattered attention, will you make it home? Will you lay the hearth, fill the rafters, secure the mantle with your heart?
We are entitled. Children of totality, the infinite and all that is beyond. We are beings in the Valley of the Field of the Lords and therefore privileged. To the riches, the joy and the sweet, sweet odor of love. I’m not talking about Diva. I’m not talking about narcissism, or ego. I’m speaking of deep down in your core, in the knowing of your very heart, that you deserve. There.
So this is your life. This is it. How would you like to do it? Do you want it light, or do you want it heavy? Do you want it happy, or sad? Do you want challenges, or do you want despair? Do you want envy, greed, jealousy, hurt, abomination, or do you want love, forgiveness, sweet surrender and joy? This is your life. This is it. So, how would you like to do it?
Being born, is the first transcendence, from womb (one consciousness) to the physical world (the next consciousness). It is the first heroic act, against all odds, pushing through, screaming, blood everywhere, and we’re alive! We’re born into it, heroism, each of us. From our first breath, we are heroes.
We are made of matter and matter is energy. This energy that we are, does not die and is greater than the sum of our parts, our parts not being solid but molecule upon molecule of matter that is fluid and constantly changing. Nothing is static. Nothing is finite. There is no certainty except to join the billions and billions of other molecules in the great primordial soup that is us, the universe, becoming the combined energy of the Cosmos, to cognize being, achieve ‘beingness’; answer destiny, join the ocean, as wave or as ocean, allowing the unified field to exist inside and out, allowing the magic of this world beyond the physical, beyond the flesh to come into existence. There is a world beyond.
What if this holiday season, you opened your eyes in the morning, and began to name something you liked? What if you thanked yourself for naming something you liked? What if you named something you liked all day? And what if you thanked yourself all day? How would that feel? What if you practicing, as a point of focus, naming something you liked, was your life? What if you filled yourself, your spirit, your soul with something you liked throughout the season? What if your holiday destination, was a point of focus and not an outcome? What if you feasted your eyes on something you like, until it became your real life, one that allowed you to appreciate all that you are and all that you have? What if you knew you were enough?
We talk about it, dream about it, fantasize, write poems, novels, movies, create works of art, architecture, landscapes, entire worlds, about epic, grand, quiet, silly, clumsy, graceful, lasting, souls mating, serendipitous, once in a lifetime, forever, undying love. And it’s huge, beyond our wildest dreams, grandiose, emphatic. But what about the touch of his hand, the light on her hair, the sweet smile, a tenderness, a simple love note? The smallest ember, becoming fire? Now. In this moment? With all your heart. Everything, everyone, every chance you get? With each beat of your heart. Why not love?
I am the mountain, I am the stream, I am the sunrise, I am a dream, a shock of moonbeam, a silver streak, arms to hold you, through the night. I am the ocean, I am the shore, I am the seagulls, I am your floor, a world to walk on, air to breath, a stunning sunset, your soul to keep. I am your spirit, I am your heart, I am the outside, I am the dark, the sweet vibration, beside you smile, before the morning, I’ll stay awhile. And be here always, in you I live. Unfurl the petals to give and give, the way you’ve taught me, the way I know with love forever, the world will grow and grow and grow and grow and grow.
Solving today’s problem with yesterday’s knowledge (the ledge of knowing from which you must jump), the culturally (cult you are all) agreed upon solutions, do not serve. In this Incoming Age we are needing to go beyond mere Paradigm Shift in order, 1,2,3, that we imagine (I Magi, bringing the gift of self to self) and enter the world of Quantum Creation, which is to leap beyond the Known, realizing, (real eyesing) solution in the Unknown, where it exists.
As we traverse this terrain of existence, tracing the experience that we call ‘life’, it becomes important to be aware of the two great gatekeepers, namely Self-Importance and Self-Pity. If we are to transcend ego and achieve the awareness that totality invites, we must go beyond mind, the ideas that mind uses to distract, (Self-Importance and Self-Pity), that we may find the deeper purpose within each of us. Regarding less, Self-Importance and Self-Pity when speaking life into existence is not only the challenge, but the outcome, because when one of us finds freedom from these Mighty Gatekeepers (Self-Importance and Self-Pity), we have built the muscular structure to manifest, and inherent in that, is creation itself; a channel where nothing sticks, but only flows, no ego, but throughout the cosmos, a world of being.

A TRUE LIFE COACH IS SOMEONE YOU CAN TRUST WITH YOUR LIFE.
[Source of the word TRUE: TREE; associated with Firmness, Rootedness, Reaching Upward, Strong Seer. TRUE: Real, Genuine, Authentic, Reliable, Accurate, Prophetic, Faithful, Sincere, Fundamental, Legitimate, Determined, Unswerving.]
Tell the story, again and again well into the past, situate it where no longer present, it becomes changeable, re-tell-able such that victim is hero, pitfalls are challenge and horrid people, present the possibility of threshold guardians, (creating the opportunity to build a muscular structure,) that the journey might be victorious and suddenly that which is gift (your life and everything in it,) is no longer in the way, but is the way. Your life, your story becomes grace, beauty and you, the hero of all of it, again and again. Tell that story.
Your power is not money or prestige, your power is not pride in self, others or community, it is not rules & laws, or even the whales you’ve saved or the number of friends and family you have. Your Power is your Heart. The currency of that commodity, the way you Love, the amount of times you’ve Loved without need to receive anything in return, that’s true power. Love is the Ultimate Power and it is always, all ways within. When given freely it is the definitive Creator and Healer. Your power is You and the Deep, Deep Commitment to Love and Love and Love again.
Moonbeams, jet streams, bargain stores, daily chores, sticky smores, men with stubble, Barney Rubble, making trouble, joy sticks, parlor tricks, Stevie Nix, chick flicks, chocolate chip cookie, Star Wars wookie, moldavite, sellinite, morganite, bliss, kiss, risk-ing the loss of self, jumping off the shelf, into what you see, be, beyond finding, beyond minding, Lochness, being-ness, sweeter than Chopin, heart wide open, LOVE.
See beyond what the mind recognizes (re-cognizes); previous similars, history, her story, to the unseeable, unknowable, unthinkable, beyond the most maximum self. Risk the growth of the depth of your life, your heart, your soul. Play in the valley of the field of the lords. Feel the first press joy. When you see something new, you be something new.
Nature doesn’t give its’ power away. And because you are nature, you are empowered. It’s you. You are the power, nature, holding the mirror to itself and reflecting you back. That powerful nature you see, is you, moving through cause, that which we call the life experience. Worship, adore, humble yourself in the awareness that you are the God Consciousness, the Unified Field, Totality within, and without. Nature’s power, which is natural to you, as it is in all of nature, is nature’s divine gift in and to you. You are therefore, immutable, limitless, the essence of extreme beauty and vibrant life. Your being is the purpose, the outcome, and the glory of existence in this physical plane. Love yourself, bathe in the knowingness, the being-ness of you. You are nature. You are power. You are love.
When beliefs that no longer serve are allowed to die, dreams are allowed to live.
Waiting in line, finally my turn, I ask, “What’s the easiest way to return this belief? Its not working for me. I want to give back the entire system. Its outdated, doesn’t serve.” The belief department clerk recites the policy, ‘A belief is a life time commitment. No returns. No refunds.’ I hear myself speaking, ‘A life time commitment? I am my life time commitment. The quality of my life is my ultimate commitment. This belief is hurtful. It disrespects my desire for a good relationship with myself and my world!’ I shake my head feeling hopeless and then I remember it. ‘You are not my friend. You have never done anything good for me. Go back to the nothingness from which you’ve come.’ I say it aloud quietly, ‘You are not my friend. You have never done anything good for me. Go back…

Events don’t cause stress. There are event horizons, what this culture (cult you are all) calls ‘tragedy’, eventualities that cause an energetic noise great enough to get our attention, but depending on how you actively choose, (and you do have a choice, you always, all ways have a choice), to behave around any particular happening, events don’t cause stress. Stress is caused by the way you choose to view events.
What you choose to see is what you choose. When you focus on that which is grateful, abundant and rich in your life, you get that. When you see the wisdom of this earth, the is-ness of all creatures, including yourself, performing as being, which is excellence, when you create that which aches to be birthed, convenient or not, when your concentration is on other and being of service in this world, then, there is life, transcendence, and the choice to choose that which is brilliance, that which is truly life affirming, life giving, life.
When you are in the dark, lights out, searching for the door, instinctively, you go wider than, reach for the knob, sense it, feel the surface, then activate, turn it and open. Still inching along with your fingers your pupils dilate and listening expands, as you move to the light switch. Before the fluorescents flicker, before the darkness lifts, you’re in it. The now. Sensate. Aware. Totally expanded. No need for ceremony, just stumbling in the dark and you’ve attached to being, dropped into the zone, you’re here. There. Nowhere and everywhere, where its everything or nothing. Anything is possible. What if your life was about stumbling, being in the dark, going wider than, reaching, feeling, extending yourself beyond the known to activate? What if you embraced the dark, excited, eyes wide open, moving through the unknown?
In allowing your heart to imagine, your being to indulge in dream, you are giving the gift of creation, that which yearns to be born into this world to yourself and other. And because it satisfies, because your spirit is aloft, propelled on the wings of imagining (I Magi bringing the gift of self to self), we too, ascend, free-floating in this present fantasy, the desire to sire, this dream, which you are dreaming, imagining, as your life. Is your life. You are daring, risking your most maximum self, birthing vibration, and we are caught in the resonance of the purity of spirit, imagining (I Magi, bringing the gift) again and again as you set us dreaming. Imagine!
In this process, the process we call life, the single most powerful tool you will need, comes naturally from being and does not need to be learned. Cultural (cult you are all) rule will ensure that you not only forget, but fear that which is organically yours so that you will need to re-engage your greatest most organically potent ability. The Super Power, given to you at birth, by birth and through the issuance of spirit, is love. Love is the ultimate power. Use it liberally, freely. Love. Yes, love. Because the more you give, the more you have. Be the Super Hero you were born to be. Love.
Tilt your face up to the sky. Inside the pink clouds and sweet warmth of yellow sun, stop, really see it, drop into that space, Your Heart, and from there, breathe. You don’t need to know, be, do, or have anything but this present awareness. Here, now, this moment, this feeling, is everything. All of life. All of you. Tilt your face up to the sky.
What if you were thankful for all of it? The supposedly good and the supposedly bad? What if every experience, every person, cell, atom, minute you spent beyond mind and the sum of it’s parts was situated in is-ness, not outcome or expectation? What if you believed that everything, everything that happens, is imperative for your personal growth, that nothing is wasted, nothing is done to you, but it is always, all ways, done for you? And what if you were truly humbled by every instant that is the experiential that you call your life? What if you chose gratefulness, no matter what? What would you see? What would you feel? Can you imagine (I Magi, bringing the gift of self to self) your life as a gift? One that is brought to you and expressly given from the universe, totality, in order that you might evolve beyond your present circumstance to reveal the immaculate being that is you?
You are here to save the world. Not kidding. Thats the mission. Thats the light you are. When you commit to being you, the 100% light which is the vibration, energy, resonance, frequency, sheer delight, awareness, joyfulness, bliss and total freedom (free from being dumb, dumb being asleep to the magnificence that is you) chalices will overflow, heavens will open, mountains will majesty and all of creation will bow. Because you, that which is your divine human-ness, is here to save the world. Ready? Lets roll!
Thick, like pea soup, the energy, laden, the stakes, high, life or death, always, all ways. You risk your life, jump into the abyss, no light at the end of this tunnel, the only way around is through, so you go, blind into the dark night and disallowing hope, because hope is for fools, you press up against it, lean into the fear, raw, like an open wound and see if you can see yourself, the ember that is you, the courage, resilience and knowing of the triumphant being, transcendent, victorious warrior of light and love that is you! Its you. You’re awake!
‘Each of us has the power to enact a program of love that is relevant and true. Each of us has the power to create love in our lives that renders an overall positive result. We have this power because love is within each of us. Relevant and true love comprises our cellular structure. Our very lives begin with the attraction and attachment of two cells. The original attraction and attachment merges and proliferates to become the 30 trillion cells that make up the human body. It might be said therefore, that attraction, attachment, or love, is responsible for our lives. That each of us possesses 30 trillion witness of love, endorses love as a most precious resource. With 7+ billion on this planet and growing, times 30 trillion cells, it might also be said that the love is infinite. As we merge and proliferate, it would seem that love comes from an infinite well.’ ~Excerpt from the upcoming book Mind Matters by Adrienne Alexander
