Hubris, hunger and thirst

Yesterday at breakfast my entire being was squeezed in a vice grip, one side of the lock emotional, the other mental, observing a situation that brought me to tears.

His Mother asked the Question

dave pellOkay… I wasn’t going to post today, however, this morning while eating mangoes and fresh raspberries while reading my email, a post dropped into my ‘inbox’ from the blogosphere called ‘Medium’. The opening was so compelling that I had to read on, and more importantly, respond. This was due only in part given the fact that I am only two weeks home after spending most of the last five months in Israel. It was posted by a man named Dave Pell, who entitled his post, “My Mother has a question”.

The only memory more vivid than my six pointed hours weeping and ‘remembering’ while walking through the Holocaust in DC, is the haunting silence of Dachau. I understand why his parents had no need or desire to go past the front door.

On a recent trip to the US, I was horrified at the media’s anti-Israeli rant. To my heart, the sheet music for their notes of distain was anti-Semitism. Horrified to hear this cacophony audible once again, I realised how ‘anti-sentiments’, regardless of the ilk, run ad nauseam, viruses, highly contagious attitudes, that need only the fertile loam of an empty heart or brain to take root and grow.

I long ago gave up being a follower, a sheep. What I discovered is that leading from authenticity is a far more empowering place than the falsity of leadership that too often turns to ‘leadershit’, especially when entwined with the title “politician’. It’s for free people to claim their freedom, knowing that only when we exit the box of fear can we turn around, no longer being a follower who’s again led to the cliff where we’re easily pushed over the edge. This means learning to lead; it requires having clarity that fosters the courage, wellness and willingness to live noble values that arise in what we know to be ethically true and moral. It’s about realising that unity is simple but it’s the consequence of complex diversity. Understanding is the only thing that will take the razor sharp teeth out of projections, false shame and blame that is anchored in antiquated ethnic, religious, and political biases. All are tied to the repulsive nastiness of bigotry that takes root in narrow-minded attitudes which is covertly linked to like-mindedness, a closed system tied to a belief that they are ‘right’ and have the right to control.

Take a look at the kids born from two parents who are supposedly a ‘unity’ and it’s clear that unity only has one product; diversity. At the age of 11, I was smart enough to figure this out because it was clear that the five kids my parents brought into the world were all from different planets, and sad but true, the only time all our orbits ever intersected was at our parents funerals.
It’s time for the Human Family to start hearing what the politicians are really saying, and to no longer placate, roll over and play dumb while accepting the insanity of their politics thinking that Big Brother is going to keep them safe. There is too much purging going on in the world, most of it based on immoral legislation someone has laid down who thinks G-d is on their side; those who think they are chosen, special, or have the franchise to the front door to Heaven which of course entitles them to turn Earth into hell so that they can make money. This unholy union of politics, religion and business is called fascism.

Dave Pell’s mom was correct to ask the question. The problem as I see it is that too many keep living the question rather than going inside to find their answer and then to live that. When there’s no response to the question, clearly it’s time to ask a different question!

Promise without compromiseIt is time to make new choices and realise that while most of us don’t remember making a choice to come into this lifetime, it is a gift that presents us with an opportunity to choose. Unless we want the genocide and ethnic cleansing to continue, it’s time to police our own attitudes and stop confusing prejudicial rules that maim and kill with the Law of Love that only heals. It is time to accept that the reflection of ‘me’ is ‘we’. We all matter, for each and every one of us is made of the same thing, stardust, and are enjoined with The Source of all creation.

Part II: Building Solid Rainbow Bridges

stormLast night around midnight a knock-down, drag out duel between storms began to rage as fronts rolled down the Alps from North, South, East and West, met over Lago Maggiore. It roared all night and continues this morning! in every way this remarkable demonstration of power feels like a set up for Part II, the continuation of yesterday’s thoughts!

My ‘High Play’, not to be confused with ‘work’ as it has been my joyous Purpose for the past 28-years, is inviting others to join into the investigation as we seek to understand and apply the complex clockwork we know today as the Mereon Matrix. A dance between water and light, this journey began with an invitation to scientists and scholars to help demonstrate that it didn’t work as I described. This systematic approach for ‘proofs’ is the rigorous methodology known as ‘scientific method’, the antithesis of ‘proving’, which more often than not is someone’s need to be right or make someone else wrong.

The purpose and focus of such an investigation is to logically determine whether or not a pattern match can be found between a theoretical model –an idea or a dynamic template– and what we think ‘is’ –a fact, known belief, or assumption. It is the quest to logically link meaning with that which is observable and measurable. If and when the veracity of such a template is verified, the real work, the task of deepening the match to see if it holds true in diverse systems at both the macro and micro level. This challenge is put to all prior and present assumptions.

Monday night before leaving Israel for Switzerland, I had my final ‘lesson’ with Isaac, my teacher during this visit. celebrating this class with my friends Moshe and Natalie. His brain as open as his heart is curious, compassionate and loving, Isaac’s spirit soars when asked a question, and what flows from him is deep wisdom. Within an hour the knowing that our bond was true, led to a mutual dose of grace that allowed us to willingly embrace dual role, both teachers and students. The bonds that braided our connection were strong; beginning with art; the second strand was resonance with the final ribbon in the tapestry we wove ancient wisdom. Our text book was the ‘Sepher Yetzirah’, which Wikipedia summarizes as:

“Sefer Yetzirah (Hebrew, Sēpher Yəṣîrâh “Book of Formation,” or “Book of Creation,” ספר יצירה), is the title of the earliest extant book on Jewish esotericism, although some early commentators treated it as a treatise on mathematical and linguistic theory as opposed to Kabbalah. “Yetzirah” is more literally translated as “Formation”; the word “Briah” is used for “Creation”. The book is traditionally ascribed to the patriarch Abraham, while modern scholars haven’t reached consensus on the question of its origins.”

That night Isaac gave me his copy of Arie Kaplan’s commentary on this book, the task he assigned; to see if I could find a pattern match between the Mereon Matrix and this tiny book that only has 1200 words. While countless commentaries have been written, the Sepher Yetzirah has mystified mystics and scholars since its inception.

Humbled, I took his mandate to heart, my first mistake to start reading the book that first night at midnight! The coherence found in the first two words, 1 + 32 a hint for those who understand Mereon, made this the first of many sleepless nights.

The coherence found in the first two words, 1 + 32 a hint for those who understand Mereon, made this the first of many sleepless nights.

At our second appointment the following day, after showing him what I’d found, we quickly agreed that there was indeed a match. Over the coming weeks as the jigsaw pieces began to fall into place, it was clear why we were able to identify the match: we had what has long been missing, the one thing needed to put the pieces together: the picture on the box!

After ‘school’ the night before I left, we celebrated the evening with their son and his family, overeating an amazing dinner prepared by Isaac’s wife, Dvorah, a true sister of my heart who was always with us as we explored. An American by birth, because English is her Mother tongue it came as no surprise how she often got what I was saying before Isaac, whose first language is French.

When dinner was over, Isaac left the table and called me into the kitchen where he presented me with a gift; the original painting you see below.

Promise without compromiseIt was one of those moments when words fail and tears fall. The hardest part of that moment was that as an orthodox Jew, Isaac is a ‘hug free zone’!

However, what makes this rule so profound and easy to accept is the understanding that this too, is a perfect match for Mereon! In the Matrix the core, the nucleus, is the masculine principle. It is a dynamic diamond that transforms, shape-shifting from ‘fire to water’ as it produces the energetic seeds necessary to stabilise and organise the potential for life. Surrounded by a water world, this, the feminine principle of creation, the abundance produced by their individual resonance, both whole and simple, is the New Psalm, that which is generated by their interaction and realized in the birth of the knotted rainbow we know as the Mereon Trefoil Knot. What their Dance is produces continuously fills the Universe with the inaudible Song that is produced by arcing angles, sound that produce an infinite array of massive light.

In leaving Israel the intent was clear; to return again. Our mutual intent was and remains clear to keep a promise we made on that the final evening; many more dialogues are to follow!

What if we can play this song of knothingness? What if we can make the inaudible audible? If we hear it what might we do? If we can see it in ourselves and others how might our lives change?

If those who can decide to work in agreement will play together, consciously cooperating with Love, we can harness this energy. When we do so our lives will overflow with the Love borne only of the Source, the heart of creation.

Every breath you take is a demonstration of the power to generate and regenerate the potential you need to make choices that will heal your body; mend your wounded heart; replace your negative attitudes with life affirming values; changing your negative habits into those that free your spirit to join in a truly Wholly reunion.

Clearly humanity is approaching one many “Now or Never” opportunities. What we do with the knowledge we’ve been given is up to all of us. Just as Noah sent a pigeon out to see if the waters were withdrawing, these questions are my ‘pigeon’, sent to you as an open invitation.

Will you return? Will you return with a branch that affirms the tree of life is growing?
We’d love to hear from you, and invite you to stay in touch as there is a groundswell of energy moving that has has the power to change our lives and as Dr. Kenneth Ring long ago suggested, to change the world. We’ll soon be sharing exciting updates on how this New Song will be seen and echoed around the world, and how you can participate

Self-talk and Compassion

talk to the handAuto-posting this DiaBLOGue to other social media sites has led to many connections, some are amazing while others fall into the category of ‘interesting’. While each one offers possible connection, every day brings an opportunity to make a conscious choice where I must decide whether or not to participate in the conversations that are found there. Those that are most worthwhile are true dialogues, those where others take time to read and offer meaningful feedback. These groups are those that I’ve decided to remain in, and continue to participate.

Such groups are incredible opportunities for good, however too many are playgrounds for bullies, where chaos rules and shaming others behaviours and blaming others is normal. Reading such posts quickly make me aware of what’s going on for me at that moment. If it bothers me the only reason is that it amplifies or magnifies the seed of that quality in my life. So it is that I’m presented with an opportunity to heal my heart and change my mind! Turning on the news it is clear that we are capable of amazing good and acts of unmitigated horror both to ourselves and one another. What if it is true that we are the product of true Love? What if it’s true that we are the Universe creating herself and co-creating the ‘realities’ that we share? What happens when our words and actions are incoherent, out of harmony, with the Love Knot that makes us all we are capable of being?

One of the terms that being thrown around these days is ‘fascism’, and yet few seem to know what it really is. From my perspective it’s the unwholly union of politics, religion and big business. Frankly, if we don’t like what’s going on in the world, laws and actions put into play by those that ‘We the people’ have the right and responsibility to elect, we have only to look at our actions or inaction. Living in a country that where there is freedom, democracy, is a gift that cannot be taken for granted or assumed as a given. Making our voices heard, in a blog as well as in a vote, is a privilege. Abdicating erases the right to complain, and may well eradicate human rights as a consequence.

Our responsibility is to respond to the best of our ability. How often do we react after abdicating our rights? For me it’s important to look inside every day to reconsider how I use tools such as this DiaBLOGue or Facebook. Are we simply promoting our own agendas? Is it an attempt to assert our will and get our way? Or is it an opportunity to get away with inexcusable behaviour?

Every post I make is an effort to express compassion and extend understanding, helping to bring about a resolution between loving and fear through one of many intentional experiences. The ‘How’ is through the realization that having the courage to love brings with it the existential fear of losing that which we love. For me living is about discovering that loving is all about openness, most especially holding those we love on an open palm, for this is what lets them move when they must and return when they choose and we agree. Mutually beneficial relationships are only possible as long as we are able to love.

Today, rather than attacking, shaming, blaming or pointing a finger, I consciously choose to accept that what I see in another is my lesson, and that person is my teacher.

I’m away for a long weekend and hope you enjoy yours as much as I am going to appreciate celebrating mine in the cool mountain air in the north!

Children, Geometry and all things Sacred

DSCN3379DSCN3347Last week I celebrated the opportunity of a lifetime, an experience I will co-create whenever and wherever possible! It was a morning hanging out with 11-year olds who were cooperating in what was billed ‘Science Olympics’ where teams co-created by folding 2D geometry templates into 3D forms, then using these fundamental ‘blocks’ to build a structure! What was magical was when they figured out how to make it dynamic! The City Mayor put in an appearance and shared with me, the brother of my heart, Tamir Ashman, and others, how he knew something special was going on when the kids ignored him! Telling us that they usually stop and drop what they’re doing, that morning they were all but ignoring him! That day produced rainbows inside and out, and reminded me how such Technicolored gifts can appear out of nowhere. Better yet, it was another lesson in remembering that the value of what is true priceless, and that the most precious are seldom material things.

For my friends who are today experiencing sorrow or loss, may you realize that the light shining through the heart and eyes of those who love you has the power to open the rainbow and do far more than renew your hope; together you have all necessary ingredients to birth the beauty that inspires visions so you can breathe life into long forgotten dreams. Find opportunities to co-create rainbows in your day today, remembering that they form when water, light, space and time agree to cooperate in the birth of beauty. If your ‘water’ is a tear, allow it to melt illusion and help open you to love. Every day I remember that each breath is a gift, a timeless moment that is filled with magic when I am open, willing and able to see. Let me encourage you to take or make time today to bask in awe as beauty arises from the ethers of your essence, and allow your heart to be nurtured by memories of love that arise from the mists of time so your spirit will once again feel the freedom that comes from having the wind under your wings.
