552 | Seize the Moment and Create Momentum

In one moment the other night, as I was listening to an interview at eqafe.com, I recalled back the time when I first found the Desteni forum, and started reading the material as well as having conversations on the forum with so many people from all around the world –
it was a fascinating time period, for I was for the first time participating in an environment where I could share myself, my questions and perspectives, share about what I was passionate about, about what troubled me – and I found many people being able to relate and there were many supportive perspectives shared with me in response, which assisted me greatly. All in all I had a lot of fun and thoroughly enjoyed the forum!

That was back in 2007 and I’ve been an active participant at Desteni ever since. Many things obviously changed in my life and are still changing. I went through various different phases and experiences, both career-wise and personally, as well as had a lot of movement in terms of being in different countries and doing different things. I continue learning and doing the things I’m passionate about, which is mostly in the fields of personal development and education, as well as Blogging and walking the DIP.

In these last years though I haven’t been very active on the forum. There are several projects that I participate with at Desteni, as well as reading blogs and watching the various hangouts. But when it comes to the forum, I found myself feeling nostalgic of the times where the forum was even more organic, a live-ly platform of constant communication flow. So I decided that I’d really like the forum to be this platform again for me.
Well, both myself and Desteni as a people’s movement, and so also the forums, have gone through various phases as well – it’s all a process, an organic movement. So much has developed, so many projects and initiatives emerged, we have moved as a group as we have been moving and evolving individually.
At the same time, for some who have been with this from the beginnings, it may be that the initial ‘enthusiasm’ and personal engagement faded away, and one is now merely participating as a supporter in the background, while the personal contribution on the forum fell short.

So when I asked myself, how can I create for myself and others the communication flow, the connections and interactions that I want to see and experience, I decided that the most practical thing to do was to start sharing – sharing myself and moments from my everyday life. Moments where I for instance had a realization or found a solution, or where I moved myself to step beyond an old pattern, or where I willed myself to remain silent and breathe instead of reacting, or where I completely fucked up in a moment and what I can learn from it.

I know from experience – not only from the Desteni forum but also from platforms like Quora, or YouTube comments, or from blogging and reading/commenting to Blogs, and obviously from life moments in general – that each one of us resonates their particular ‘points’, the challenges and themes or patterns one is working through; and there will always be people who relate more to what we say/share, and others who relate less. So I figured that by simply sharing myself, there will be people who can relate and who would add to the perspective / discussion – and this way we can get to know each other more, and through each other we can learn more about ourselves.

So in that moment - as this remembrance of my engaged participation and grateful experience back in the forum's beginnings came up – I decided to grasp it and create Momentum:
Momentum meaning, a moment where I –in relation to a point– had that spark alive within me, where I remembered how much I enjoyed participating on the forum with other people, sharing supportive perspectives – that moment wanted to be seized, or rather, I truly wanted to seize the moment and make it real, and so there it is: the ‘moment’ in ‘Momentum’ – where, if I did not make the Decision to Give the Breath of Life and Fire up the Spark that is here as Momentum, as the potential that I’m able to see myself living; it would have probably faded away and the life of the moment would be gone and lost, and I would have fallen back into the 'comfort zone' of a more limited version of my potential participation and experience.


So I decided to stop limiting myself and my participation and engage more actively, being that this is something I enjoy so much: sharing, caring, and opening up dimensions so we can look into the depths of our being and support ourselves and each other in bringing forth real change.

At this point, if you’re interested in looking into the latest “Moment” I wrote about, you can read my previous posts
550 | How I turned a Moment… and
551 | Self-Empowerment or Disempowerment - A Moment's Decision

They are about this very point of Momentum, of ‘the Here’ and what we do with it –

Will we use it, ‘the Here’, our every breath, in self-empowerment? Or will we enter the programs of disempowerment and ‘go with the flow’ of our pre-programmed 'reality' and accepted limitations? Every moment asks this question: Who will you be?

Who are you? What do the moments of your life as you live them manifest into? What do you give life to, within yourself and in your world? That is a question Life asks each one of us in EVERY SINGLE MOMENT – every breath counts.
We only got one life people, let’s make the best of it, let’s explore our individual and collective potentials, to be the best we can be – and create the best version of our world possible!

553 | Moments: MOnument-of-ME-iN-Time

Continuing from
550 | How I turned a Moment…
551 | Self-Empowerment or Disempowerment - A Moment's Decision
552 | Seize the Moment and Create Momentum

So I’m continuing in the theme of “Momentum”, for I would like to stress the POWER of the MOMENT, the POWER of HERE that we each have in Every Breath – the only real power we have.

The decision to be more active on the forum comes along with the decision I made to be more active/engaged within my everyday life moments and take initiatives in physical reality. In the end, it's the relationships we create that in turn ripple out and create the bigger picture of relationships within and as our world.
And I mean, wouldn’t it be awesome if we, in every moment were present, Here in Awareness and would 'seize the moment' and really make that moment count, in making the decision to do/express/participate in the best way we possibly can.
This self directive awareness is something that can be lived in any moment we decide to push and go for it, move beyond whatever conditioned fears or anxieties and push for the 'new script', the 'new me', taking that step to express, to participate, and in that, breaking the chains of preprogramming.

All that in ONE moment – which can go either way, but WHO decides?
In every moment there's actually always one CHOICE: we either 'fall back' into the program and do the usual thing, or we seize momentum or rather create momentum in awareness, basically like stating I am here, and then looking into ok what is my contribution, how do I want to participate, what do I want to express, what do I want to create?

We always create who we are. We've been creating ourselves and our world in unawareness, that's why we ALL WANT CHANGE.

It's interesting that we've been talking in the world a lot about Change, not necessarily realizing that at the same time we are talking about Creation. It's just that, to truly create, we must first stop/move-through/transform that which has been re-creating itself as ourselves and our world over and over again – through all our acceptances and allowances. And nobody wants to take responsibility for CHANGE but everybody wants to own CREATION (extremely put). Well how about we Own Change.

I mean, really, whatever thoughts and emotions 'justify' each one's 'limitations', our 'holding back', our 'fear of life' or 'fear of death' or 'fear of ridicule' or whatever the energy for each one is - in the end it's just that, just a program, conditioned with fail safes against change, bringing up resistances, and we really gotta learn to push - learning by doing - it's how we birth ourselves into living, as life, here in the physical. It's how we start creating ourselves for real. I mean so many people 'live out' their 'passion' in the mind, where not much of it is seen/expressed/manifested in the physical reality at all, but they can dream about it, or 'feel it' and 'feel good' - but no real change ever comes out of dreaming alone.

So I guess what I'm saying is, I find I'm focusing more lately on the change I want to SEE, realizing I have to create it. So I focus on recognizing my potential and committing to explore potentials in all aspects of my reality/world/life -
in a way also specifying/strengthening the 'new script', focusing on who/how I want to be and live, rather than in my mind focusing on the things I need to 'change' because then I'm focusing on something that I've defined as 'not good enough' which in itself is a skewed starting-point. So I decide to focus on what/how I want to express and participate in my world, what I want to create, and from there yes I am facing resistances, but I walk in self commitment to in real-time moments push through the resistances, realizing that 'it's just energy' and I don't have to succumb to the pull, it's just the old program pulling and fighting for its survival, generating ‘fear’ and ‘resistances’ as energy within my physical body. But I can breathe. I can ground myself. I can step out. I can make decisions. I'd rather live so that I am ready to die any moment.



Back to the 'Moment' - that's where our power is - HERE - in every moment. We can only walk one breath at a time, and in each ONE breath, in each ONE moment, we can be the directive principle, we can be the living awareness and real creator.
In case you have wondered, why this title? Moments: the MOnument of ME iN Time,

Well, one thing I’ve come to realize through walking the Desteni I Process is: we always create who we are. We do this either in unawareness – through our acceptances and allowances, based on conditioning and cultural and other programs – or we do this in awareness and understanding, thus in responsibility not only for ourselves, but LIFE itself.

What is the legacy we leave behind?
What will be written on our grave stone?
What is the 'Monument' I am building as myself through my participation in moments in life?

Who we are and have become is an accumulation of all the moments we have lived and of who/how we have been and allowed ourselves to be in each of those moments – the thoughts & emotions we implicitly accepted, the self-definitions we succumbed to, all the limitations and behavior patterns: we have been Active Participants in all of that in all those moments, yet – where was our AWARENESS? Where was our self honesty? Why did we compromise ourself? Why do children with time lose their natural self expression, their passion for learning and discovering the world around them?


Obviously we are faced with bigger problems in our world than just ourselves – and yet it is ourselves we must begin with, if we are out to change things around us. Ourselves and our relationships with and within our world – this is how we create – what is here. Let’s do this right. Let’s do this together. Let’s do this for life.

554 | Sensationalism and emotional maturity in society

<<...When a Heroic Teacher Asks Her Kids a Question They Don’t Usually Get, Ellen Breaks Down In Tears...>>

So I watched this video (http://omeleto.com/209705/) and then I wondered:
As humanity is awakening to the real value of life and living - will we make sure that ALL WEALTH - be it money / support /resources - flows to ALL?

I mean, I'm all for supporting people who support people and esp. who encourage and support children in giving them the space and time to explore their world and discover who they are as a living being, discover their self worth as life, their passion for life/living, their unique talents and skills and interests...it's about our future!

So - Will we work together as life to create a new system /way of living - that CARES for and supports LIFE?

Or will we remain content ‘feeling compassion’ and ‘doing charity’ without changing or seriously questioning the very system that breaks us through enslavement/exploitation, indoctrination/control, a system that through divide & conquer has us on survival mode within an entirely conditioned state of mind/being, where we’re constantly balancing out 'rewards' and 'punishments', being caught up in emotional mentalities, feeling 'inferior' or 'superior', fighting over every petty shit and taking things personally, but missing the very core of our value as living beings – that we are Here as part of LIFE, we are HERE to LIVE

Imagine all those children seen on Ellen’s show continuing to grow in their self awareness, continuing to care and continuing to learn and discover themselves and their passion, their contribution and participation in life, without the constrains of the current accepted and ingrained system... the liberation of LIFE begins within each one

We all recognize that each one life is born with a full potential to be an exciting and meaningful part of LIFE and CREATION on EARTH - given the supportive conditions and shelter that human life on earth requires to be met with dignity, consideration, and respect.

The Right To Life is currently determined by laws that do not have the interest of LIFE at heart and so it's time to question and correct the agreements that we as citizens of life on earth have come to accept / adopt / follow…

We need a new way of living
We need to stand up to our humanity and make it real in our world
We need to work together
We need to work on ourselves
We need to cherish our breath
We need to equalize our minds to reality
We need to be one within ourselves
We need to be the one
the one to walk, the one to see, the one to make the decision
the one to change, to move, bring forth new ways,
to lead example, share self empowerment
to connect and support
to walk with and learn from
to grow and expand
to flourish in the joy of creation and exploration
TOGETHER
As LIFE



Investigate the Living Income Guaranteed and get involved in discussing, understanding and redefining the Human Condition!

I support the Equal Life Foundation because of my own principles, and also because it focuses on the power and responsibility that we the people have (if we take it, if we give it, to ourselves and each other) as the majority on Earth - so –

Let’s work together in Common Sense for Life on EARTH to get to Real Democracy and Real Living Creation in the interest of LIFE

555 | "The Briefcase" – The Devil in Disguise?

My previous discussion (554 | Sensationalism and emotional maturity) was in part 'inspired' by a new reality show called “The Briefcase” ... (Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=77lUAy8vwTo)

Each episode features two middle class families struggling with their finances. Each family is given a briefcase with 100 thousand dollars in it and are told that “They have a decision to make”. They can keep all of the money. Give part of it away. Or give all of it away to the other family that is also struggling. Though neither family knows that the other one was also given a brief case and has to make the same decision.

Watch it or read about, the show serves all clichées and plays on sensationalism and emotional stimulation addiction, but it does also show/reveal the false dilemmas which the world/money-system and its 'way of life'-systems serve us constantly, in all aspects of life...
I mean it's time to ask ourselves what drives our decisions and choices - who are we really in this life?

We are so used to the fact that emotional stimulation on TV is used to veil the real issues /deeper issues we’re facing – and yet it seems emotional stimulation is addictive…
The show The Briefcase shows this quite intensely, and we can start seeing clearly that these/such conditions and emotional roller-coasters mostly exist due to the accepted systems and how we've defined life/living.
I mean, wouldn’t all agree it would be awesome to change the system to no longer be a casino - but real support for real life, sustainably so!

We can actually also use constructive comparison of effects in the case of 'The Briefcase' and in cases where a basic income on a regular basis is guaranteed - to look at what is different in the approaches and basically help people ask the question: how would my life be different if I weren't 'stuck in the system'? What would I do? And what can I do differently NOW, seeing that most are 'stuck' in system conditions?

Here is an excellent little documentary showing several social experiments with a Basic Income around the world:
Money for free https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hidqABq4Yc

So, we need to see beyond ‘The Briefcase’ and rather look at what changes in the system we have to implement to make of financial stability a reality, not a tv show…

Being that ‘human nature’ was manufactured over generations through ‘public relations’ and the ‘fabrication of consent’ – the indoctrination called ‘education’ mainly – it’s no wonder we are sitting here today with what we call the ‘Human Condition’ and hardly understand what it is that we’re facing…
However, awareness is emerging more and more, and indeed we are able to together and individually strengthen our awareness and make sure we take responsibility for what will be created as 'the future' – which is indeed OUR future!
So – the solution: work together – learn together – share – support…


Looking again at the Show, what I’ve noticed is how the couples both said that they got 'closer' through the challenges placed before them as they had to discuss such big, even though BASIC, matters...
It seems then that we accept for ourselves less than 100% clarity and direction in our lives, also in our relationships, we 'forget to communicate' about what really matters...
And so often something 'traumatic' must happen for us to really take those reigns in the hand and see the best solutions possible, or new options even…

So this then showing how deeply MONEY affects our relationships in this world, much more than we realize or readily admit…
and how we tend to lost communication in our relationships unless 'the house is on fire'!

Another point that I see must be addressed is how our Decisions are 'made' by our financial situations, by the level of our communication in our relationships, by the level of our own self honesty, etc. etc. In the show we witness how ‘difficult’ it is to make a decision – they can keep all of the money; give part of it away; or give all of it to another family that is also struggling –

and this dilemma is served as ‘real’, when it is in fact a false dilemma, as are many of the dilemmas we are confronted with in the current system…
A false dilemma because it’s in no way question the SYSTEM that allows for such dilemma to be raised in the first place, as if that’s just the way things are…!
And then we can blame the money and the system ‘out there’ and this then perpetuates our fuzzy logic of self-interest… And this self-interest can take absurd expressions even, like in Episode 1 where the husband decides to give all of it away and wouldn’t place his own family as priority when it comes to support through money. He might have thought to himself that this is ‘altruistic’, but in fact it’s just a mind-set, it’s just a personality, it’s the want/need/desire to be seen as a ‘good person’ or ‘do the right thing’: self-interest.

So all that ‘feeling sorry for’ and stuff like that – that’s all just programmed reactions of consciousness where in our minds we can then ‘feel better’ about ourselves, because if we ‘feel sorry for others’ then that must mean we are a ‘good person’, so what else is there – we leave it at that.



Let's not remain 'content' with merely 'feeling compassion' when news touch on our sensation of humanity - the truth of humanity and what we have become is seen in the mechanics and relationships that form the whole. the system. what kind of system are we accepting and allowing?

Let's work together in all possible ways to support a real evolution and awakening of ourselves as living species of LIFE that will create a new system where such emotional overwhelmed-ness need not exist, as flow and self expression and exploring potentials / contributing / participating in society/neighborhood, discovering and forming our world - into an outcome that will be best for all, best for LIFE

For proposals to stop the survival games and to start creating systems that support LIFE so that we can ALL LIVE >>> Equal Life Foundation
The proposals can be adopted by any party / government / municipality / country / group of people - where the starting-point and implementation processes can be set by each according to the socioeconomic and systematic/environmental conditions of the area.

Already several 'awakened' politicians support Basic Income, though the funding of it still scares many. We go a step further with the Living Income and discuss in-depth alignments and changes for the current systems and 'governance' in a way that will both empower the people and the business sector and will help the economy flourish and benefit all.

556 | What is your Life’s Authority?

I find this to be a cool exercise to initiate for oneself – to question what in your life you actually fear questioning or avoid/resist questioning, or don’t even THINK of questioning – THAT has authority over you.

So – while most will be able to look around them and find such examples of authority ‘out there’, rarely will one consider looking INSIDE – ‘in here’ – to look at what exists and how it exists in the mind, be it thoughts, perceptions, emotions, beliefs, self-definitions or definitions about the world, all kinds of pictures, ideas, ‘ideals’, etc. which, if someone were to challenge you to question, you would absolutely resist/avoid questioning!

So there we have it – Mind Control is an inside job. And all those ‘things’ inside of you are not even YOURS to begin with. They were not there when you were born! They were imprinted unto you as you started ‘entering the system’ and ‘embracing the matrix’ of what we have accepted as our world and the ‘way things are’, of what we have allowed life to be and become. All the things that tell you who you are and how you are, determine (through your acceptance) what you can and cannot do, what you can and cannot be, what and how the world is, etc. THAT is it then – the Authority in our individual realities, as well as our collective reality as this world.

The system within – the system without.

Investigate the ‘principles’ these two systems function on, and you’ll find it’s the same games, the same equations, the same ‘stuff’ that makes up the ‘rules’ that keep life enslaved – within and without. What really is it that RULES?

We have not be the Authors of life on earth, not even our own.
We have not been Shepherds, but merely sheep in our own minds.

We have existed in the consequential realities created through our acceptance and allowance. Yet the times are changing, and our Awareness as Life is emerging. We have started awakening – to our Truth.
This emergence comes along with an interesting realization – the point of Responsibility, or Response-Ability.

But that too has been a process. In the ‘search for truth’, some wanted to find Beauty and so they’d see only beautiful things and be blinded by the ‘light’ and called themselves Enlightened. Others again wanted to ‘ascend’ even further. Others got stuck in dark places and remained in fear. The human mind, split into polarities, got more and more fragmented, the human being more and more disempowered. Integrity and Dignity are, though of the most substantial elements in the definition of Humanity, scarce. I dare say that is in fact the biggest scarcity we have manifested.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have met people in my life to challenge my accepted limitations and perceptions of reality.
Since I got involved with the Desteni group I met many people like myself that are taking responsibility and getting to an understanding of WHAT IS HERE, as our creation, our responsibility, our legacy as humanity and human beings on earth, in this life.

We must get to an understanding of how our creation came to be as this world; and how our individual creations as our lives are created. And within that we need to question: Where has our awareness been? What is the Authority in our decisions?

This system, within and without, has become so automated, that humanity seemed powerless against it for a long time.

Yes we are lacking substantial education and unbiased information, we are lacking a direct and clear view at reality that would enable us to “put two and two together” and do the math.
...It’s time to life the veils.
It’s already visible, however, that we are awakening to the reality of what is here, and our awareness is emerging as the realization of our interconnectedness as life, of our responsibility, and of that which it all comes down to – that is us, human beings. Who I will be within myself and within the whole; and who each one will be; and who we will be together as HUMANITY.

It’s up to me, it’s up to you.

557 | Taking back Authority - Step 1 Self Forgiveness

I’m continuing here from my previous blog post (556 | What is your Life’s Authority)

<< So – while most will be able to look around them and find such examples of authority ‘out there’, rarely will one consider looking INSIDE – ‘in here’ – to look at what exists and how it exists in the mind, be it thoughts, perceptions, emotions, beliefs, self-definitions or definitions about the world, all kinds of pictures, ideas, ‘ideals’, etc. which, if someone were to challenge you to question, you would absolutely resist/avoid questioning!

We have not be the Authors of life on earth, not even our own.
We have not been Shepherds, but merely sheep in our own minds
>>

At this point I’d like to take this opportunity to share some perspective on forgiveness and particularly self forgiveness – as I've found the process of self forgiveness to be a process of self realization as Self authority; where I can be the Author of Me.

In my process I've come to see how thoughts and emotions and my interpretation and perception of things, the world, even myself have been the AUTHOR of my life experience –
where I had felt like a victim to something always, to the world, my culture, circumstances – I felt powerless to live life as I would like to, hopeless in how I saw myself and the world, as if I had no say in HOW I experience myself.

Obviously this wasn’t a cool experience and I’m sure there’s many people out there experiencing themselves in a similar disempowerment. If you can relate to this, what you need to understand and come to terms with is that you are the one that’s been involved with this experience intimately, it exists as it exists primarily due to the nature of the relationship you’ve developed toward it – how YOU related to all points, and how the decisions were made about WHO YOU WILL BE in this relation.

So – once I realized this, I also realized that I was part of the problem and was thus involved in (re-)creating the problem, which also meant that I was part of the solution! And that if I was to change, things were going to change around me.
This obviously doesn’t mean that everything would start going ‘my way’, but at least I could change who I am, how I stand, and how I participate in, say, similar moments / situations in the future. More than that, it meant seeing my life in a new light and developing a new standing within myself – which did make my life a bit easier.

That’s why I want to share with you – why and how I was able to start changing that in self forgiveness.

What I’d like to share here is my perspective of the power of Self Forgiveness (and notice the two words in Self Forgiveness are equally accentuated).

So it’s not that Forgiveness has the power to change you, no, it’s Self forgiveness – meaning: the power must come from you – you are the power.
I find most interesting that the true power of self as life begins at the point of forgiveness, meaning where I within myself stand-up and take responsibility for a moment, an experience, a reaction, a thought, or whatever it is I’m facing at any given moment as ‘friction’ – to not judge it, to not polarize, to look at it for what it is, to understand it and understand what is required to move the point to an equilibrium, and thus I take responsibility for the point as myself.


Self forgiveness is where I give myself the permission to stop following the old scripts and allow myself to be and become the Author of Myself, and thus the creator of Myself in Awareness;

Self forgiveness is where I in a moment release myself from being a puppet of the system/consciousness (my personal/accepted limitations and societal/cultural programming) trapped in energy (positive-negative polarity experiences as emotional-/mental-reactions activating as triggered or otherwise conditioned) –

and so self forgiveness is where I agree within myself to let go of whatever it is I'm holding onto as 'value' or as something I want 'proven right' or as a fear or an expectation or a desire –
anything, any energy/mood/state/projection that's keeping me 'trapped' in a mental moment that is not HERE, where I'm trapped in the feeling/emotion I'm holding onto, where I am not the directive principle of my experience, where I am not the direct creator of myself in that moment, but through what I accept and allow; where I'm not taking everything into consideration, where I don't see the whole picture because I'm busy holding onto this 'one' point as it's all I see while I'm 'in it', - but it's so limited, thus limiting; and so I take a breath and move myself out of the energy/mind and I let it go.

So self forgiveness is where I breathe and ground myself as I realize the above, and where I can see and appreciate that indeed I breathe here and thus I am here, that I can have a say if I give myself a voice, and so I speak, and as I speak self forgiveness and live self forgiveness – I forgive myself the limitation I had accepted/allowed about/within me or my life or my world; and I Give myself the Gift of Being Here, where I can make the decision to live the full potential of who I really am as life in any given moment; and in that moment of self forgiveness I embrace Life as myself and Give life to myself to be and live the true potential I can be as a living being;

Self forgiveness is where I remove the weeds or parasites from what has grown in the garden of my mind-body-being relationship throughout time, and water within myself the seed of life from which I as a living being in awareness grow and expand – doing/living what's best for me, and so what's best for life - and as I grow and expand as LIFE, equally I support LIFE around me.

558 | Who we are as Words – Taking back Authority step 2

Continuing from my previous posts
556 | What is your Life’s Authority and
557 | Taking back Authority - Step 1 Self Forgiveness

An interesting point I’d like to open up here is the point of WORDS, as I’ve seen it showing itself within these previous posts discussing Authority, Empowerment, Self Forgiveness.

<<I've found the process of self forgiveness to be a process of self realization as Self authority; where I can be the Author of Me.>>


In the Beginning was the Word … But what does this mean, and how is this so?

If we look at what starts to define a child’s experience as it integrates into this world – it is the words as symbols as information and ultimately as judgment, that are impulse and imprinted unto the child’s mind and through that its psyche.

A problem we are facing in what has become the human condition of ‘human nature’, we predominantly speak words that are charged with what we call ‘emotions and feelings’. Emotions as the negative energetic experiences and feelings as the positive. All the while these experiences are themselves preprogrammed designed and in-formed ‘entities’ as personalities, fears, desires, self-image and other definitions (again: Words) that the parents were impulsed and imprinted with by a system designed to create human slaves prone to control and manipulation.

And so you’ll find for instance that ‘emotions and feelings’ is what both the parent and the child will use to manipulate one another or to manipulate reality to ‘fit’ the conditioned mind/personality.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we shouldn’t feel anything – but I do believe the human being has currently still got a long way to go when it comes to REAL feeling as life, real feeling as a physical human being, in awareness of life as a whole and the realization of its interdependence with everything that is here.

The negatively and positively charged energies that we experience and leave ourselves to the mercy of – are all based on how WORDS as meanings are perceived and interpreted, in short: reacted upon, and this reaction (mostly automatic in nature itself) determines the relationships and associations we create, and those are systematically either of superiority or inferiority. This polarity can be looked at as the main polarity of the entire system (within and without), where things and life/living are determined in terms of superior/inferior, right/wrong, more/less, good/evil, etc.

When words are integrated and embodied with energetic polarity charges, we’re looking at twofold consequences:
one is that we are no longer able to explore a word / an expression to its full potential, and obviously we then also remain incapacitated from understanding the pure definition of a word and looking at it for what it is.
Both these consequence dimensions involve bias and this places us in fact into an inferior position compared to the utmost potential we could be living if we were grounded in reality with a truly free spirit of mind.

So is the Superiority/Inferiority complex or polarity-system that defines and determines human existence justified? In a way yes, because we have accepted and allowed our full potential as humanity, as living beings, to be incapacitated and manipulated into power games that do not honor LIFE – the life that exists in each one as we breathe the same air, under the same sky, in the same atmosphere of ut-most-fear…

This is the human condition. And we are all responsible.

So this brings me to step 2 of Taking back Authority –
the self authority we had abdicated to systematic structures that have clearly not been what’s best for LIFE, as WORDS of judgment and polarization, WORDS separated from our source as life, WORDS we accept and allow to define our self and other people and to form our perceptions of our world.

What we need is for WORDS to be ‘purified’ to their source and purpose – as expressions of life – not as forms of perception manipulation.
Both within – where we then no longer exist in inner conflict and friction;
And without – where we can finally come to a mutual common sense agreement of what Life on Earth can be.

Obviously we cannot as life one earth reach our full potential, if that full potential isn't realized individually at a personal level.

To be able to see and recognize that – SELF HONESTY is required.

Self Honesty to realize and understand what self has been existing as and where all that is coming from; and also Self Honesty to see and acknowledge our full potential as everything that we can be and live, once we stop our acceptances and allowances, stop the abdication of responsibility, forgive the separation of ourselves that we had accepted and allowed – and take back our power to stand as the authority of who we really are.

In Self Honesty we also must see to it that our Words are expressions of ourselves as living beings – and in fact we can work with and use Words deliberately and purposefully in our processes of Change/transformation. Not as the wishful thinking of positive affirmations, but as our living Will, Clarity and Commitment to what we see is possible; to bring our self, our life, and Life on Earth as a whole to the most dignified, magnificent, and enjoyable manifestation it can be!

559 | Who We Are as Words – How can we Forget!

What an interesting word: FORGET...

We all think we know what the word means because it’s one of the first words we learn as children, the latest in the first grade at school…
But let’s have a look whether we truly grasp or even question the meaning of a simple word like this

Old English forgietan "lose the power of recalling to the mind; fail to remember; neglect inadvertently," from for-, used here probably with privative force, "away, amiss, opposite" + gietan "to grasp" (see get). To "un-get," hence "to lose" from the mind. A common Germanic construction (compare Old Saxon fargetan, Old Frisian forjeta, Dutch vergeten, Old High German firgezzan, German vergessen "to forget"). The physical sense would be "to lose (one's) grip on" but that is not recorded in any historical Germanic language. Figurative sense of "lose care for" is from late 13c. Related: Forgetting; forgot; forgotten.
(etymology dictionary)

I have underlined some interesting dimensions of the words in the above definitions, and even by simply looking at the word and hearing how it sounds, a fascinating insight opens up:

For-Get
…it’s there for the getting

So, when we think we forget something, has it magically vanished? Does anything ever get lost? Or is our ‘forgetting’ purely consequential – resulting from suppression, denial, ignorance, a lack of awareness?

To answer this question, it’s worth looking at the antonym of the word FORGET, which is to REMEMBER.
Another simple word that we use automatically, but let’s break it down:

Re-Member
…suddenly that which we had ‘forgotten’ becomes once again a member of our mind, it’s ‘back’ in our awareness. It was ‘lost’ and now it’s ‘found’, but did really ‘go’ anywhere?
Or is it that we had veiled its existence through suppression, ignorance, denial, procrastination, and the like...


Have you ever considered re-calling and re-membering past memories for instance? And have you done so with directive will and a clear mind? Then you’d know that we are in fact always able to re-member everything that we have been through, for it is part of us, we had made it a ‘member’ of ourselves through our participation, whatever that participation might have looked like.

It’s interesting that the real meaning of the word FORGET seems to be in reverse; where that which we ‘forgot’ is not truly lost, on the contrary: it’s here for the getting – but do we get it?



So I wanted to share this little realization for anyone interested in questioning the things we take for granted. And I’d really like to commend to the interested reader to start investigating words, and questioning the definitions we’d taken for granted.


In this context I’ll also refer to my previous blog post 558 | Who We Are as Words – Taking back Authority where I elaborated on the relationship between Self-Authority (being the author of oneself/one’s life/experience) and WORDS.

Even looking at the word AUTHORITY now, you can check for yourself: what reaction/experiences come up within you in relation to this word? Look at the connotations, associations, and energy movements that come up when you read, hear or speak this word.

You could further look at what other words exist with the same root /in the same category:
Authority, authoritative, author, authorize, unauthorized, authorization, authorship, authoring, authentic, authenticity, authenticate…

Now have a look at each one and you will find different energetic movements coming up within you – indicating the charge (positive/negative) you had accepted the word to be charged as, relating to other words as connotations or associations or to memories from the past – all of which distort the word in its real meaning or its potential as a living word.


From the mentioned post:
<<The negatively and positively charged energies that we experience and leave ourselves to the mercy of – are all based on how WORDS as meanings are perceived and interpreted, in short: reacted upon, and this reaction (mostly automatic in nature itself) determines the relationships and associations we create, and those are systematically either of superiority or inferiority. This polarity can be looked at as the main polarity of the entire system (within and without), where things and life/living are determined in terms of superior/inferior, right/wrong, more/less, good/evil, etc.

Both these consequence dimensions involve bias and this places us in fact into an inferior position compared to the utmost potential we could be living if we were grounded in reality with a truly free spirit of mind>>



Now even the simple words ForGet and ReMember illustrate this polarity – two sides of the same coin...
So why do we mostly only see/perceive half the story...?!

560 | What Can We Learn from the Death of Cecil The Lion?

Cecil The Lion's death has been 'trending' on social media this past week and has truly created ripples on the world wide web.
And so it’s really interesting to look into the point and see what this is showing.
There’s already been several cool perspectives shared, discussing this point and what we can learn from it. Make sure you check out these critical and reflective posts:

HELLO HUMANS, MY NAME IS CECIL

Animal Kingdom Enslavement Ends with a Living Income Guaranteed

Cecil, The Life of One Lion

Steve Irwin's Message after the Death of Cecil on Youtube




I’d say one of the vital points the mass awareness that was expressed and is being expressed in relation to the death of Cecil the Lion is showing, is that humanity realizes more and more how we are reaching the point of no return and we must do something about it!

What is important now is that this doesn’t remain just ‘news’ and a momentary sensation of "we should act" that fades away the moment the phone rings – after all, then sensationalism and media control would have reached their purpose – but that we DO work together and educate ourselves about what is going on in world, and find solutions to make sure the future of humanity is a safe home for ALL LIFE!


Find out more about the CONSCIOUSNESS OF THE LION and what we can learn from that about human nature and the consciousness of humanity!

(Note: check the links on my Blog for this post, as this post is more of a compilation of links to support in creating ripple effects on the web)

561 | When you´re tired of spinning around...

You know those moments when the world seems to be spinning? When you feel overwhelmed with everything that´s happening, where you think this can´t all be happening at the same time?

LOL I had this experience recently and it had been years since I´d experienced such intensity. When I slowed it down to look at it, there was two things to see:
It was as if there was `stuff´ inside and around my head and all the stuff was like spinning around within and around my head - and so I had to take a step back, like stop for a moment and breathe, slow down even more... what I realized then was for one there was things that I hadn´t given direction to the very moment they came up, and so continued occupying space in my mind: and secondly I realized that interestingly enough there was a perceptual dissonance existent:
where I, through my mind´s eye, I was looking at everything coming at me. All this stuff was forming lines or ques from all sorts of directions and was `coming at me´. So in that moment I saw the solution, which was to disrupt my perception for a moment, and reassert my will to see direct and in clarity.
So now instead of `stuff coming at me´ I realigned myself to be the one walking, the one moving forward, the one directing instead of reacting.

So when you´re tired of spinning around: stop. Take a breath, slow down, oull in the energy and ground yourself. Realize: "I am here."
I am here, I breathe, I stand on this ground.
I am here and as I stand stable, I see that breathing in and breathing out is my natural real-time movement, and I can only do one thing at a time -
yet if I´m trying to do more I´ll be missing those fragments of moments HERE while I am in my mind trying to do something or figure out something or think about something...

Awareness in the here, presence in the moment, the will and self-commitment to live real-time - this is a journey to life, a journey of living!
And I find this conscious application does make one more grateful, more humble, more gentle, and open to life, to the potential that is here in every moment of breath. In fact, I am finding/discovering gratefulness, humbleness, gentleness within myself, in real/time moments no matter how `small´, and then through embracing and living it consistently I cultivate it, I express it.
`Be like the water´, I recall the words of Bruce Lee. Be like the water, make the best turn in every moment, gentle yet consistent, still yet flowing, embracing everything on its way, and moving what needs to be moved.

Direct yourself - don´t be a victim to anything, not even your own mind.
Breathe - you are a whole physical universe, a body - not jsut a mind.

Self-Reponse-Ability is Key.

Self responsibility and self movement - and what that practically entails - is a powerful approach that I learned through the desteni I process.
