A Joyous Solar Return My Friend

Without a doubt, loving friendship is the greatest gift we receive in the precious Gift of a lifetime.

Because today is my final day in Israel, a 2+ month adventure coming to an end with a return already planned, so it is that even as another begins, yesterday morning I promised myself to write and post the Dia.BLOG.ue at midnight in order to have the freedom to focus my remaining hours with my family of the heart. After celebrating an amazing 5-hour dialogue and a delicious dinner with friends as we found and followed “the red thread” that links the ancient mysteries left by Abraham, Kabbalistic knowledge, and modern science, I returned to my home-away-from-home —Toda robah Eliran and Dafne— where I sat down to pause and reflect on what my heart wanted to share.

molokini to mauiInstantly, I found myself time travelling to the spring of 1996 and the island of Maui! Without missing a beat, my heart skipped and jumped for joy as I stood on the beach front lanai where I spent two months writing my first book, this sojourn the generous gift of a friend. The brine of the sea was overwhelming, was as real as the breeze touching my face as I gazed across Maui’s sandy beaches towards the crescent island of Molokini where countless days were spent snorkelling and diving with my Dad. As my inner eyes looked to the left, time slipped and Makena Bay came into view and images came to mind reminding me of the summer day in 1977 when we scattered his ashes in the sea.

Without returning to the present, I remembered sitting at the desk and knowing why the word MUSIC was the only word in my manuscript with all capital letters; it was because this the strongest sense felt in my dance with the arcing angles of death. It surprised a lot of people, all of whom expected the emphasised word to be ‘Love’. This was certainly understandable given that since 1987 my Purpose was and remains to ‘remember, understand and be loving’ this the heart of the message and the method.Then and now MUSIC is the clearest expression of the logic of Love for me,  and when I feel it in as few as three notes friends will tell you that tears often well up from an unimaginable depth as remembering leads to a longing that causes my heart to overflow.

world in a love knot(1)These images are multiple perspectives of one dynamic, The Mereon love knot, are so much more than a metaphor for the harmonic unity that I experienced in death. They hint at the power Source that frees me to do my utmost to co-create harmony in this and every moment. (This knotted path is the scientific knowledge that colleagues and I presented to the world in the book ‘The Mereon Matrix: Unity, Perspective and Paradox’, where the cover art is a snapshot of the dynamic that only hints at its complexity.) Having no beginning and no end, every ending embedded in a restart, this link connects all forms with in the matrix. So too, it is the covenant that bonds each one of us to one another. We are formed of stardust and joined by the movement of invisible forces, angles —geometry— that rotate, spin, spiral so that we can infinitely expand to fill empty space. Just like the rainbows we see in the sky, this optical and meteorological knotted spherical phenomenon is magic, produced by the reflection, refraction and dispersion of light in water droplets. This beauty continuously fills me with awe, doing so in the same way that finding a rainbow bridging heaven with Earth does! Better still, is when grace flows and I hear, feel and see the harmony that moves when I love myself and the overflow opens me to allow another in. This is when the melody becomes clear and the spectrum of light bridges two souls across infinite distance in time and space, illumining the gold within the heart of both.

This thought dropped me back into the present moment where I was reminded once again how it is that when we free ourselves we’re able to grow faster than we ever imagined. Think about and the reason becomes clear; travelling the arc is a far shorter journey than transiting the angle! So it is that When we get out of our own way, energy flows and we fly in an arc of grace as divine connection joins us with all that Is —the passed (not one of us has flunked or failed our past), the present moment, and the future. Miracles arise in remembering that we, humanity and all creation, are One Family, everything w-holy united within the flow of Eternity. While remembering this comes with elegant ease, making what is true real in our world is certainly not always easy, this something I’ve learned in every ‘world’ I’ve walked and laid my head. It was after 01.30 when I finally went to to post these thoughts, and while my intent was good, the cosmic jokesters apparently wanted me to sleep on it because our website was temporarily down for technical maintenance!

So it is that as I prepare to post these thoughts and do what must be done in this morning light, pack my bags and prepare to take flight once again, let me say that I may not be able to find or make time to write in the next few days as I’ll be riding the rainbow, bridging the 1,650 kilometers (2,655 miles) between Tel Aviv and Milan as I make my way home to new ‘nest’ in Minusio [Locarno], Switzerland. While I’m at 37,000 feet, walking Lago Maggiore with my friend Urs for a couple of days, and flying to Denmark for a week of parties and packing, I invite you to feel the Rainbows that connect your body, heart, brain and spirit. Allow the truth, beauty and feather-like light of nothingness to fill any hole you may have in the fabric of your life, and use it as a balm to heal every emotional paper cut. As you allow it to bridge every gap in your heart, then permit it to fill any mental crevasse you come to. Believe me, I do so often, taking my own medicine my daily prescription. Living in the flow of infinite ease is in no way to be confused with easy, but let me assure you that doing so lifts unimaginable emotional burdens, and moves the biggest mental boulders that obstruct my path. What’s as amazing is how every time I face the rainbow, not the light, the lights in my inner world come up to full wattage.

Remember that when we bring our tears into the light of day, they too are filled with rainbows. Don’t hide your sorrow, for when others see these droplets, their world opens with and together we can harness the power of such moments, harnessing rainbows as the Divine fills the gaps with stardust. As our hearts refill, new thoughts and songs arise, and they are the wind that sends our spirit soaring. This morning it is with joy that I recall that every breath is an opportunity to live wholly and fully as I heal, growing through the muck and mire as I get over my story, both the physical detritus and the emotional remnants that remain after one of life’s stormy moments.

Today I will harness the courage to capture rainbows. Will you? With every conscious breath I will renew my commitment to cultivate understanding, and invite you to join me as I renew what is my most solemn vow; to laugh long and often and let my attitudes, tones and actions be filled with loving.

If you are ready to live a life without compromise, make a promise and seal it with a rainbow and you will begin to live and grow deep in the flow of the Love Knot.

Thank you so much for following and participating in this dialogue. I am deeply grateful for your passing it on to friends and family you feel will find it meaningful.

P.S. And  as my apologies for the typos and spelling errors that always seem be found after posting no matter how many times I ‘proof’ my thoughts! More than one friend has generously offered to proof for me, but time zone differences make this all but impossible 🙂

Time, Travel and Transformation

As hard as it is to believe, my long journey across Israel is fast coming to an end, even though my return in already embedded in the current ending. As we celebrate final dinners and I pack my bags in preparation to fly to Milan, and train from there to Locarno for four days before flying to Denmark –to see if my cat will still talk to me–. The 24th I will fly south once more, and while I’d planned to keep my feet on the ground for the summer, another ‘bounce’ was added to my itinerary yesterday, a return to California. The reason is a joyous one I can assure you, and I’ll update more about that later, but the lesson is once again a reminder that announcing plans is a surefire way to make the Universe Laugh! Remaining open and in the flow is the only way I know to grow, and it’s also what’s necessary on our part for the divine to do what she wants to do; cooperate in making love known!

There is no time to write about the magical journey that evolved during the trip north to Tzfat and the return to Tel Aviv, so I hope for now the pictures will serve as reminders of what a beautiful planet we are privileged to call home.

Moon Shadow InPowering InLightenment

_IGP0070Every single breath is an opportunity to Discover Your Youniverse, every moment a chance to live ‘Plan Be’, making best choices in the moment without being attached to a particular outcome, this always the seed of pain.

Our lives are interconnected at unimaginable levels, and each of our concurrent realities reveals the unique way that we are active and whole participants in a deeply unified multiverse. Join me in remembering that ideas in our heads, and those that we imagine as being inked on paper –like these– are simply cosmic post-a-notes. For me every entry into the DiaBLOGue is a short love letter. They are intended to serve as reminders to myself and anyone who finds them meaningful, that living in Love is the illuminated progress we make in our journey towards the illusion of dying.

Take care not to carve any idea in stone, and please don’t hide them inside your head or heart! Why? Because being human means both these organs slam shut on a regular basis. When you find a thought or an idea meaningful, write it down as a ‘memos-to-self’. Put it some place where it’s visible so that when you need inspiration it’s available! And take care to remember that what you find something personally meaningful, its most often because it is a reflection of a universal truth. Pass it on! Such golden nuggets carry wisdom that can help all of us change our minds and behaviour. The important thing to remember is that we must do so as often as necessary based on what truly matters to you.

Well-being means making sure your day has gaps, empty spaces where you can take time for yourself. As the total eclipse happens tomorrow, lighten up and make new decisions that let you grow in grace and gratitude! Take time to write down your dreams to that you can share them with others who are called to help you bring them to light. Every day is a new day for you to become the true author of your life story, and yes, it may well include authorising revisions! This evening I leave to travel south into the western desert where I’ll be meditating with my Tribe for 3-days. Join us from wherever you are as you observe in real space or the Mind’s eye as we participate in the awe and wonder of creation as a sliver of the Moon shadow slips across the Sun over our heads. I look forward to sharing what will no doubt be an amazing adventure, Advent-tour, when we return to Tel Aviv on Sunday.

Paradox: The Cosmos has a sense of Humour but the Universe isn’t Laughing

IMGP9782Most are familiar with the quote “No man ever steps in the same river twice”, but few know it was uttered by Heraclitus, a Greek sage who occupied the planet long before Socrates. He stands tall in the legion of cosmic muses who inspire me, a man who was a self-taught pioneer seeking true wisdom.

I know well the traits necessary to become and be a pioneer; think ‘chutzpah, tenacity and more than a teaspoon of audacity. To venture into domains that nothing save death and dying prepared me for, think ‘’science’, has been the most amazing adventure.
