No Need to Clutch, It’s an Automatic Shift


I have spent hours starting this article over several times. Sheets of legal paper surround me with dozens of outrageously brilliant thoughts that I was so cleverly going to weave together into a poignant, yet gracefully written piece of art. However, it’s just not happening that way. My energy is requiring something more like a blurt-it-right-out-there approach. Here goes.

It’s kind of nice writing for the readers of this publication. I can skip so many preliminaries about shifts, changes, transformation, paradigms, and numerous assorted things about light. We’ve all competently learned to repeat them over and over again without even a hint of energy. It reminds me of the time I was going to be flunked out of confirmation class for not being able to repeat some wordy article of creed.

Just for clarity, let me reflect the view that we are moving out of a consciousness of duality characterized by competition and polarization, and into a state of being that is Oneness. The world created — while in the deep density of duality — has become severely unbalanced. That world is now being rebalanced. Chaos is the new buzzword that refers to the transition where all crystallized forms holding the matrix of death are being replaced by fluid, living organisms.

The move to the clear expansiveness above the fog of duality is more difficult and personally challenging than the mind might think. There is no hierarchy in a unified whole. The ego is evolved in a system where value is found in being one over another in some way. If the ego doesn’t feel one up, it feels one down. As the system the ego has learned to be in withers and dies, it will contract and grip in fear.

The ego self has actually been a marvelous creation that was perfectly designed for the purpose of our evolution, so don’t be putting it down and frying to kill it. Love it up, thank it for an extraordinary performance and tell it that it can relax now because that is its new job. Tell your ego that it gets to retire and get the RV it always wanted while you get to graduate and be present in the  in the world as a fully employed joyful performer choreographed to dance to the music of the One. Have a little party, then let go and take your place. The place only you can take.

Perhaps it will take a little while for you to adjust to a way of life that honors you for being who you really are. In fact, it’s a way of life that requires you to be who you really are. A reminder in case you just forgot: the other way of life is going away. Maybe you will find yourself involved in a process that includes the question “Who am I?” You, of course, are the only one who actually has that answer, but I can offer some things for you to check off the list of who you’re not. Ready?

You are not your salutation: Honorable, Mr., Professor, Mrs., Miss, Ms., Sir, Dr., Rev., Rabbi, or even Honorable Rev. Dr. Professor.

You are not your degree or a bunch of little letters after your name: A.A., B.S., PhD, M.D., D.D.S., D.C., A.S.P.C.A., E.T.C.

You are not your title: President, CEO, Second Vice President of an Associate to a Possibly Important Person in their Own Standing, or Wizard.

You are not your system of thought: Pick any religion. Pick any expression of that religion (include traditional, conservative, liberal, or esoteric). Any “isms” you espouse go here. Then add any alternative systems. Oh, by the way, the isms are all going away. Take care, New Ageism is an ism too.

You are not your credentials: List here.

You are not anybody else’s notion about who you are: Anybody.

I, others, and the, planet await your full revealing of who you are. If you need help, then still your busy mind and focus on a color. I suggest Gold. Hint: You are Golden.

The energies that anchored during the 12:12 time last December made it more possible to make the movement away from the egocentric place and out of duality into your rightful place within the whole. At the time of this writing it appears that the energies building in June make it more possible for those moving out of duality to become synchronized as a unified organism. Each one of us is challenged by that final fear that shows up when we quit talking words at each other and understand that all along we were meant to become the living principles of all the promises of all those systems.

Despite all of the countless ways we have given name and form to the way we see things, I find it possible to distill the essential guidance down to two directives from two unquestionable Sources. The heavenly Father says, “Choose Love.” The Earthly Mother says, “Be Here.”

Choose love. Be here.
