I wrote an article a few days ago not realizing the stir it would have generated. The article was titled . There were many who felt inspired by it and there were a few who came at me as if I was the Antichrist. Those who were inspired were those who apparently had drawn the same conclusions as I had but had never really voiced it at least not in an open forum. I however voiced it yet this was not the first time. No I did not play it safe. I recognize that many are hungry for something else but when all that seem to be there is the same old same old then some will hang in there in silence and some will retreat quietly to themselves. One focus point of the article addressed the art of channeling and its followers. Those who were annoyed with the article seemed to be those who avid supporters of channeling or those who simply just did not agree for whatever their reasons were.
Before going further with this article let me say very clearly once again that all of it is valid this cannot be stressed enough. We are operating according to what we find essential and appropriate. This also does not mean that one is superior over the other or that one is lesser or greater or that one is chosen and the other not. The writing of that article was all by design and everyone who read it did so for a reason regardless of the opinion which was formed. There are no mistakes! It is advisable that one ask themselves why they were prompted to read it…and I must ask myself why I wrote it and why did I choose to put myself out there in this manner. Well I have certainly had to grow a thick layer of skin since then. Was I upset when I wrote the article? No. It is the reason for the humorous style in approaching the subject matter.
I have learned that to play it safe when it comes to my own evolution and what I am feeling inside is to deny myself the opportunity to grow by leaps and bounds… to avoid misinterpretation let me clarify that this statement applies to me; I cannot speak for anyone else. However I realize the manner in which playing it safe can limit one to a predictable set of possibilities. Predictability is a safe space, it is the familiar. It is why many find it challenging to let go of the past despite the challenges of the past, none the less the past provides a reference point for predictable outcomes. This creates the rewind effect. Every next moment is then created from the patterns of the past with slight variations to the experience. Others will say but “sometimes you need to play it safe” that could be defined perhaps as diplomacy. Yes I agree so it is then up to the individual to determine when to apply the brakes and when to hit the gas.
We are all very protective of our holograms by that I mean our individual construct of reality. It is the reason why we are ready to defend it. Our holograms are guarded by our egos. We come out with heavy artillery as we are our own military for our reality; we must fight to protect it at all cost from all foreign invaders. We stand guard ready to zone in on that one word or that one look that signals opposition, this of course activates the defense system. We are programmed to survive; our survival program is running 24/7 it is why most of our society operates on a daily basis in the survival mode, the “fight or flight” mode. This entire process is duplicated in the overall hologram; countries fighting to defend themselves from foreign invaders. Again much misunderstanding has set off many wars. It’s always about a fight to defend our county, our land, our territory, our religious/spiritual beliefs, our culture and of course our planet from foreign invaders. This is what we all do, again this is not a judgment this is an observation. Defend it if you will for in that moment you will see the very thing that I am speaking of. In truth and in fact what are we defending? Do we really know what it is that we are defending? Yet all of it is the nature of the experience on the planet. The entire spectrum of experiences navigates us through our goal in exploring the full range of possibilities in being human. So in other words being in survival mode or not being in survival mode is ok either way. We are experiencing the range according to what is needed. I too found myself wanting to defend myself, defend the article, but from what? Would I be defending myself from not playing it safe? The experience was what I created for myself. There was no hiding; it was a matter of owning my expression. It gave me new dimension into myself and where I go from here.
It is the physical part of us that does the reacting. These bodies are the vehicle designed for the processing of these experiences, it processes a chemical response; electrochemical impulses. These bodies are designed to “survive”, to protect itself from invaders. We have however turned over complete control to these bodies and so much of our thoughts and actions are run by the “survival” system in place. We are on autopilot. It is why our diets can destroy the body, it is because the frequency of the thought field and belief systems are of an equivalent vibration and therefore unable to override or penetrate the frequency patterns of the substance being ingested. We have stabilized foods to particular frequencies as can be observed in its form and its chemical makeup. We are unable to un-stabilize the molecular patterns to the realization that “there is no spoon, it is you that bends”. This is what we are all working towards regardless of the road we may take, regardless of what we are aware of. It is about coming to the realization that there is no spoon. This analogy is supported by breakthroughs in quantum physics. It is the observer that creates the illusion of the bending spoon. Here is a quote from The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot
“University of London physicist David Bohm, for example, believes Aspect's findings imply that objective reality does not exist, that despite its apparent solidity the Universe is at heart a phantasm, a gigantic and splendidly detailed hologram. To understand why Bohm makes this startling assertion, one must first understand a little about holograms.
A hologram is a three-dimensional photograph made with the aid of a laser. To make a hologram, the object to be photographed is first bathed in the light of a laser beam. Then a second laser beam is bounced off the reflected light of the first and the resulting interference pattern (the area where the two laser beams co-mingle) is captured on film. When the film is developed, it looks like a meaningless swirl of light and dark lines. But as soon as the developed film is illuminated by another laser beam, a three-dimensional image of the original object appears.
The three dimensionality of such images is not the only remarkable characteristic of holograms. If a hologram of a rose is cut in half and then illuminated by a laser, each half will still be found to contain the entire image of a rose. Indeed if the halves are divided again, each snippet of film will always be found to contain a smaller but intact version of the original image. Unlike normal photographs, every part of a hologram contains all the information possessed by the whole.”
It is clear to me that a number of people will agree to this realization yet in the same breath this will be contradicted. This recognition of this phantom/holographic design of reality clearly imposes the realization that creation is like a child playing hide and go seek with itself. Growing up basically like as an only child I understand what it is to play by myself and get awfully creative. I would pretend that the bushes were my children or that they were students in a classroom and I was the teacher. This is what we do, we are here to imagine the most outlandish experience possible but of course it has to be believable even for the creator of the experience, perhaps more so for the creator. It’s your game, your hologram. I am part of your hologram and you mine. I need you to be here at this time and so do you if you are engaged in any aspect of my experience and I in yours.
Let us further examine the importance of our individual creations. Let us first recognize that we can’t go “wrong” (for lack of another word) with what we create. You are obviously creating and making choices according to concepts and ideas which would support those decisions. Perhaps in order to create your world five years from now in this moment you will create an experience which will establish an outcome that will influence choices, options, decisions which will present themselves in the future. It is the way we roll into the next experience. The format of our world has always revolved around themes. Themes represent cycles. The New Age movement represents another theme in a particular period of human evolution/expansion. What happens however is due to the nature of our design we very easily become locked into these patterns and themes. We become comfortable once again with the familiar, this becomes just another programming. Repetition without dimension is programming; where one moves according to a specific set of guidelines without deviation. Such behavior or rituals are also essential in creating discipline and some guidelines and boundaries until one feels self assured enough to hold your own and deviate or add dimension to the disciplines. When one begins to trust him/herself the guidance unfolds from within. Whatever methods ou route we choose is then simply a stepping stone. It is clear that we are privy to and have access to the full spectrum of creation which moves as streams of data. This data takes the shape of the visible world and that which is invisible to us according to the boundaries placed on ones perception.
It is evident that in the overall picture creation does not appear to play it safe otherwise we would have been limited or bridled in the creation of our holograms/private reality. It however has a blueprint or patterns of the design to be constructed. Everything is allowed so that we may have the full potential of the human experience. However for every action there is a reaction. What we create will bear fruit, the vibration of that fruit will determine much of one’s experiences. There is no good or bad there is only the vibration of the reaction. This is what we must contend with, the reaction. Another point to keep in mind is that everything that we do we do for ourselves. We do it for the payoff; again this is not a good or a bad thing. I am writing this article because it is helping me to sort through some thoughts and ideas floating around in my mind as are all my articles and my book. We want to believe that we do it for others but in truth it is the feeling that is derived from it. Sharing becomes a great outlet. When we do things for our children or family or a stranger, it’s a great feeling! When we do things that are upsetting to others there is still a payoff; you needed to feel the way you feel after all was said and done. It does not matter what it is in the end we do it for ourselves. We get that same feeling when someone else does something that is what we call “shameful” underneath it all we feel elevated as we could not have done that, “we are not that kind of person”. How do I know this because I have had to examine myself and to my amazement I realize the payoff derived from all of it. I could say much about the role of victimization but we will save that for another day. I don’t write or share the information because I believe that the world needs saving or that I have the answers I do because it frees me to be me regardless of the response. It allows me to experience my weaknesses and my strengths, it allows me to stand firmly in my ever expanding knowing and if along the way lives are changed because of it then I am ever so grateful for being allowed to be part of one’s evolution. My workshops and my lectures allow me the same experience. It is about my growth and that is how I contribute to this beautiful dance I own that it is about me and so I don’t have to hide or play it safe in most instances.
Most people play it safe because change is devastating. As I said previously we each have a model of reality to which we live our lives. When an attitude, people, place, thing or belief is shifted it becomes a chemical reaction. We are addicted to our lives it is how it is held together by the chemicals and hormones coursing through us. Shifting anyone of these, even moving a chair causes adjustments to be made to our hologram or basically we may have to create a new hologram. This can be scary especially when your entire reality sits on the foundation of your spiritual belief structure, everything is supported by the other . Who will guide us? What will we do? We are wandering into uncharted territory, will there be a guide there waiting for me, who will be there to let me know that I am going the right way. Yes it can be a jolt but the one thing that I am famous for saying is that “no matter what, you will live”, even when you appear to die you live. Another aspect of thought that can certainly provide support is the realization that you are not running out of time as time is an essential illusion in order for us to have this linear experience. If there is no spoon; and at heart the universe is but a phantom then there is no such thing as distance and without the idea of distance there can’t be time or gravity for that matter. There is no here nor there, all that exists is this moment and everything else is a speculation. This is where the idea of “time” is formed in the speculation. Another quote from The Holographic Universe by Michael Talbot
“Bohm believes the reason subatomic particles are able to remain in contact with one another regardless of the distance separating them is not because they are sending some sort of mysterious signal back and forth, but because their separateness is an illusion. He argues that at some deeper level of reality such particles are not individual entities, but are actually extensions of the same fundamental something”.
During the writing of the Holographic Canvas did I know who David Bohm was or Gary Zucav author of the Dancing Wu li Masters, no I did not but as I wrote and it was time to form the book my inner guidance directed me to information that would support what I had come to understand on my own. I understood the nature of reality before knowing the words “quantum physics”. It was what I asked for, I asked to know from within myself and to my surprise scientists confirm this possibility in the above quote. It was necessary to have scientific information to support my own conclusion as it is evident that people are more confident of your claims. On the back of my book The Holographic Canvas it states “like the single cell of a plant our history is encoded in us”. We are the single cell and the entire plant all at once! We are streams of data! We are the information itself! We have access to all aspects of knowledge the question is whether we are in a space to trust that inner knowing or not. We most often must build ourselves up to that space of trust. It is for this reason that every step we take is our pathway leading to endless possibilities. To walk with no boundaries is to no longer fear ones actions for one has become aware of the significance of the reaction. So the question is do you play it safe or do you go for it.
