Autism is not a handicap or a disability

Striking find and absolutely conclusive explanation°! ThankYou°!

Jesus through John

Autism is not a handicap or a disability; it is a sign of the awakening of very powerful intellectual abilities, and it is a gift that needs intense stimuli and encouragement. When that awakening starts, the physical abilities the child has already developed get sidelined as the brain moves into extreme overdrive, and intense fascination with what is going on inside itself captures the child’s attention.  The basic skills that the child was building are no longer interesting; they are boring and they get ditched as the infinitely creative inner world expands exponentially for the child.  The child is not shutting down but growing intellectually at an incredible pace that allows no time for basic motor and social skills to continue normal development.  If this is realized and the child is enthusiastically allowed to freely develop this inner world, then s/he will pick up the basics later, and possibly rather…

Council of One via Gillian MacBeth-Louthan: You Hold the Geometries of What Is Sacred

imageCouncil of One: You Hold the Geometries of What Is Sacred, as received by Gillian MacBeth-Louthan, September 2013 at: http://www.thequantumawakening.com
We have existed long before you were created. We will exist after earth has turned to a star. We come forth from a place that has always existed as Light. You hold memoirs of us within your genetic encodings. We are the ‘Council of One’ and each one of us is stationed at a sacred access and exit on Earth. We align with what has been holy, long before the Earth was fit for life. We align with what was holy before your solar system existed. We align with what is holy and that which can never be destroyed.
Throughout time and space, you have ventured into new degrees of experiencing life. You have ventured into situations where time has slipped like a sailors knot. You exist simultaneously in a multi-dimensional fashion and it cannot be any other way, but you have forgotten the rules of the game as you take multiple time outs and bench yourself. All of these experiences come to show you in a clear-cut manner exactly what you need to agree with within yourself in order to become that which the universe asks you to be.
Within you is a programmed genetic coding to ‘seek’. You ask questions when many others do not even bother to think in that direction. You strive to remember where you have come from, you seek the oneness of love that you know lives as a singular event within your heart and you look for that in the eyes of all that you meet. You are known in the universe as the ‘seekers’.
Time dances around you, winding and unwinding in such precision that the other elements are jealous. Imagine all the cogs in the wheels of time that turn to create events opening you to more possibilities than you had entertained. Imagine the veil being lifted and you can see the inner workings of every human you meet, every reflection in every mirror of every interaction within every individual.
As you move into these time events you will see the many costumes that each person wears. the many dos and don’ts they have given themselves. the many shoulds’ and should not’s, they wrap around themselves as a cloak of camouflage. These time lines ask you not to be afraid of death, of life, of love or of succeeding. You have come here voluntarily to this planetary jewel. Many of you are angry at your humanness. You want to be light and not human. In truth dear ones, you can be nothing but light, no matter what form you take in any incarnation in any timeline.
Like a liquid that is poured into a special container you hold the same vibration of light at all points of incarnation, you just choose to wear different containers.
You hold the geometries of what is sacred. You hold the promises that you made before you incarnated into your original soul. hold tight to who you truly are through these shifts and not lose yourself to the mayhem. You are a living vortex, you are a living light and you are an emissary of the Heavens.
Trust what the heart tells you. Each time you think that you have a hold on your life or your situation, something immediately shifts. Each time you think you have tamed the wild beast in your family, in your boss, in your wife, it raises its ugly head. Know without a shadow of doubt that when there is upheaval around you that means the light is shining bright. When everything is turned upside down it shows that your life is a light that shines majestic enough for the darkness, to notice you. You are on the proprietary list. You are listed first on the label.
You have held the light for so long wading thru this time and energy you have accrued goodness in any form that you choose. You have saved many blessing for hard times. Spend them how you wish in accordance with your heart. Do not spend them to get away from the rising waters or the collapse of the economy. You cannot spend your blessings in a place that will not receive them.
No matter what the proof is, you have to believe in the highest good, the highest light, the highest frequency no matter how it appears until the very end. The energies of imagining that you are in battle on the battlefield in the days of old and suddenly you stop to pray, like Joan of Arc must have done as she battled what was injustice. Praying and talking to God in the midst of battle – that is what you will be asked to do.
You are becoming the marvel, the event horizon, by yourself and no matter how much you love another you cannot make them become that singularly of light. They have to choose on their own.
From now until the end of the year you will find yourself in visionary capacity – opened eye visions happening as you are driving, as you are talking to another, as you are just sitting pondering in your bathrooms. This energy, this ocular frequency, is opening up portals within the eye structure. There are many parts of your eyes that are like a honeybee hive – there are hexagons within them. There are eight portions of these geometric frequencies within your eyes that will be happening around the iris of your eyes and you will notice your eyes will change color. People will speak that your eyes have changed color from one conversation to another. These portals of seeing are coming as a gift for you.
For many years some have lost their sphere of visibilities. It’s like the cord was cut or tied in a knot and nothing flowed. This time period allows you to see and then hold on to that information as a truth. If you see a person in the store that you know is a pedophile or you know abuses children, energetically you see this and you want to do something about it. Physically you cannot say to this person or those around him but you can send the vibration of protection to the children he may interact with.
As you have the eyes to see again a great responsibility comes forth with this. In this responsibility you will be shown each person how to deal with what you have found to be the truth. We do not ask you to be flustered, fearful and angry over what you see whether it is the person next to you that you love, your children, or whomever, but we ask you as a priest that has been confessed to as many to hold that truth in secrecy. There will be occasions where you will interact with those of your own light and you will speak of it and they will know what you speak but you are being given the secrets. Now every priest or psychologist or lawyer that holds these secrets sacred is asked to be in proportion and hold the light without speaking the secrets to another.
As the Seers what you see isn’t always pretty. You are all becoming great listeners you hear the thoughts of others. Allow these truths to escort you into higher octaves of your own DNA patterning you have played every role thru time and you hold that information within you. We try hard to prepare you Helping you to move effortlessly in a fluid manner through these shifts. You are the one that holds the light and anchors it. Even when everyone stole every hope that you had, every mustard seed of faith, you came back to the light. You do not know anything but the light and that is who you are. We are the Counsel Of The One and we are part of your light as you are part of ours. We leave.

Love without Boundaries

From *D*breaking*the*silence* @ removingtheshackles.blogspot.ca

In my opinion the following article is one of the best that Bill has ever written on American Kabuki.   (He seemingly channeled George Carlin for a few sections, lol)

When you can remove the boundary on your love, you remove the limit on your BEING and DOING.   Its really as simple as that.  ALL THE UNIVERSE MOVES ASIDE FOR LOVE. FOR IT IS ALL MADE FROM LOVE.  Densities, dimensions, realms, are all constructs of beliefs and consensus of those that chose to play in the experimental playground of the illusion of separation.”

Love without limits. 

This is one of the most difficult things for people to grasp.  If we are “ALL ONE”, as so many new age gurus and perceived ascended masters and perceived higher dimensional and/or galactic beings continually talk about,  then how can we put limits on our love?  How can we say “he is good, and he is evil”?  How can we say “We are all One,…. but we are going to punish those ones over there”? 

Either we are ONE, or we are Separate.  It really is very simple.

Love Without Limits.

If we are all ONE, how can I love you and not love her?  How can I love these people, but not love those people? 

I ask of you to keep your door open and not go into fear, hate, anger, or even the love that is conditional. Yes the love that has conditions attached to it not the unconditional love of being heart-source connected that love that is in the neutral zone.

Unconditional Love. Love without strings attached.

Do you say to your child “I will only love you only if you are a good boy”?

Every BEing here, there and everywhere is playing a role.  That is what this experience of duality and separation has been all about:  experiencing every aspect of separation and duality in all ways possible.  There is no “Light” without “Dark”.  “Good” & “Bad” are just aspects of duality and in order to truly experience Light & Good, there must be “Dark” & “Bad” to hold the contrast.

If you only Love the perceived “Light” & “Good” then you are still living in your role of duality and separation.  If you are holding onto that duality, how can you be in unity with ONE?

Either we are One, or we are Separate. You can love Without Boundaries as One, or you can love with boundaries as separate.  The choice is yours to make.

LOVE WITHOUT BOUNDARIES…

 

 

 
 

By American Kabuki (Bill)

 
This summer has been an odd time. Amazing new insights, and the impatience with with what we still have to endure in this world.  People suffer.  Bills aren’t getting paid. That can’t be denied.  Can’t we get this over with already? What the fuck…another chemtrail?…another war?…another “deranged” killer shooting random people? False flags, black flags, pirate flags, fringe flags and parade flags.  Maybe we should just ban flags altogether?  Guns don’t kill, flags do! They separate! Flags separate people one from another.  This country loves flags and hates fags. But even they have a flag! TWEET!!!! EVERYONE OUT OF THE POOL!!!  Can you hear yourselves?
 
Frustration is being directed at those are making changes rather than the ones who cause the suffering.  That’s disbelieving you have the power to change your reality, when you get angry at those working to change theirs. 
 
There’s Brinkmanship in economic, political and covert circles.  The ones who insist nothing has changed are working overtime to make sure it doesn’t.  The chess pieces in various realms trade moves. Agents infiltrate, tell fibs, sow discord, draw followers to economic, spiritual and political factions.  Same old template, polarize, divide, conquer. Pick your dogma, each has one. “Believe in me and I will set you free! And by the way, I read all your akashic records!”  How about believe in yourself and find the answers within? Its all there you know! 
 
I was reading David Wilcock’s blog this week and something just jumped out at me.  Its what prompted me to write this article.  I don’t think David even realized what he wrote.  But its been popping up in my vision everywhere since like a crazed bouncing jack-in-the-box.  I love David Wilcock, but ever since he got spooked by a purported death threat (and what blogger in this field hasn’t had those?) he’s been off his game. I loved the Source Field Investigation book! Pure genius! Financial Tyranny was well researched, except for the part on primary market banking…  but this jumped out at me…  
 
LOVE WITH BOUNDARIES“….WHAT THE FUCK DAVID? DIDN’T YOU READ THE LAW OF ONE SERIES?

 
 
LOVE WITH BOUNDARIES????  DAVID DID YOU HAVE ABUSIVE PARENTS?  Lots of parents withhold love until the get what they want from the kid… its kind of a sick level of immaturity but it happens.  If parents can’t show unconditional love where else are the kids going to learn it?  Happens between mates too.  I’ve lived through it. I knew a Belfast couple once that fought like cats and dogs!  But they had a rule between them, that no matter what happened during the day in their daily Irish bickering (honestly it would have exhausted me the first week!), it never carried over into the bedroom where love could be used as weapon of denial.  They stayed happily married and deeply in love with each other until he died of an illness.
 
To be honest, I have less trouble with Ben Fulford making promises of unleashing the asian hordes of dragon ninjas on the cabal cause at least I know Ben is consistent in his logic.  Ben doesn’t claim to love them at all!!!  Straight up guy Ben! That is…when he gets his facts straight and doesn’t have me misplaced in Ethiopia looking for the Ark of the Covenant while being chased by purported CIA assassins that never existed…perhaps the WDS can hire Ben a fact checker in exchange for a box of 1934 FED bonds cause I don’t think they are going to get any gold for those things.
 
Don’t get me wrong… I don’t agree with Ben’s approach, because a lot of innocent people are going to get killed.   And there’s lots of people in “team contrast” (as we like to call them – cabal is becoming so cliche now that Keenan uses it) who are in a real bind, they are extorted, they got their families safety on the line by their pay masters because those people are the most enslaved of anyone on this planet, well paid slaves perhaps but they do not have freedom.  And a lot of those bloodline families have kids that want no part of their ancestors behavior patterns….even their DNA is changing! THEY ARE HUMAN and part of the diversity of humanity on this planet.
 
I am really growing tired of the terms LIGHT and DARK.  Might as well use US and THEM.  And like all words it so easy to semantically shift who you are referring to.  Victory to the Light?  Lets change the phrase to “MEET YOU AT THE BEACH IN ONENESS AND HAVE BREWSKY!”

Lots of divines rolling around  preaching love and causing separation… lots of LOVE BOUNDARIES in the cosmos of the divines…. and I got an email today that made me realize this has been going on for some time…its biblical even!  Don’t make it right!  

 
Here’s the exchange with a friend from a circle of scholars I have been holding a 15 year conversation with on the nature of Jesus of history (as contrasted with the Jesus of myth). It relates to a fundamental flaw in Western Christian thinking, and that underlies the comment David Wilcock made about LOVE WITH BOUNDARIES: ….

10 Signs The Global Elite Are Losing Control

Karma is coming for the elite in a big way. As the Powers That Be head toward a devastating defeat in their war plans for Syria, signs are emerging that their rule over humanity is rapidly diminishing.

Over the last decade the global elite have been on a mad dash to consolidate power over the world. It’s always been their plan like some evil villain in a comic book, but after 9/11 the plan went into overdrive and then turbo charged during the financial crisis of 2008.

Yet it’s doomed to fail because humans are meant to be guided by their own free will, not controlled like livestock. The more the elite try to control humanity, the more entropy occurs. Entropy, for those who don’t know, is the lack of order or predictability; a gradual decline into disorder.

Although the elite still enjoy a huge wealth advantage over the masses, they are now resigned to behaving like tyrants to maintain control. This, in turn, exposes their dark side which has been cleverly concealed for ages. Not anymore.

People are waking up in droves, at least as fast as the elite can build their full-spectrum prison matrix. Let them try. To paraphrase Victor Hugo, “No army can stop an idea whose time has come.”

Here are ten signs that the elite are losing control over the people:

1. Official lies no longer effective: The lies they tell simply don’t work anymore. There was a time when official lies, especially about war and peace, were believed. Because, after all, how evil would it be to lie about such things? Generally people want to believe they are being told the truth when life and death is at stake. The boy who cried wolf has cried one too many times. Even if they told the truth at this point, very few would believe them.

2. No confidence in politics: US politicians have a paltry approval rating. The trust in government is at all-time lows here and around the world. Mainstream polls show only 10% of the public has confidence in Congress. In other words, 90% don’t believe in them to be competent to govern.

Watch this Town Hall exchange below where a man threatens US Senator John McCain with arrest for treason to his face. This would have never happened just a year or two ago:

3. No confidence in media: The most recent polls show that 77% of the population no longer trusts corporate TV news. Is it any wonder why the establishment media failed to sell the lies about the alleged Syria chemical event? With all their monopoly might over the airwaves, they can no longer claim that black is white simply because officialdom says so.

4. Bankers rejected: Hungary recently became the first country to follow Iceland’s lead by shedding international bankers (IMF) and is considering pursuing prosecution of past prime ministers who enslaved the people with debt.

 Look for this trend to continue even if nations decide to default to break free.

5. Vatican abruptly cleaning up its act: Under the previous Pope, Pope Benedict, scandals erupted from the Vatican ranging from covering up pedophile priests to money laundering and fraud. Benedict, in an unprecedented move, abruptly retired to make way for a seemingly much more likable Pope Francis. Pope Francis by all measures is working furiously to reclaim the church’speaceful and humble reputation. Whether this is genuine or a PR move, it’s telling that the church was forced into such a drastic turnaround to save itself from losing all credibility.

6. Mutiny among soldiers: Finally. Soldiers, who are outlawed from making political statements, are steadily speaking out against US military adventurism. As Einstein famously said “The pioneers of a warless world are the young men (and women) who refuse military service.”

7. Militarized police state: One of the darkest signs that the elite are losing their grip on power is the construction of the militarized police state specifically trained to combat domestic civil unrest. Local cops with tanks and other combat gear are working with Feds at Fusion centers, active Army units are on American soil for the first time in history, the NSA spy grid is being used by the IRS and DEA, and the elimination of due process for Americans under the NDAA are just some of the tyrannical moves made to secure the elite criminals from public backlash. They’re clearly scared, and they should be given what they’ve done to the American people and the Constitution.

8. Serious secession movements everywhere: A state seceding from a larger political entity used to be an ultra-fringe concept, until now. In America, secession movements are winning over the public in parts of Colorado and California. In Europe, serious secession movements are happening in Spain and Scotland, as well as several EU nations flirting with the idea of dropping out the the euro. Decentralization = Entropy!

9. GMO food being rejected everywhere: Control the food and you control the people. True in theory, but much more difficult in practice. GMO leaders like Monsanto are being exposed. All of their economic and political strength cannot defeat the spread of knowledge about the dangers of pesticide-soaked Frankenfoods. GMO fields are being burned in protest in America and around the world, informed nations continue to reject their products, and labeling laws are gaining traction.

10. Cannabis liberation: Many reading this will think marijuana legalization is a superficial development. However, it is a major signpost that the elite’s grip is fading. Enormous resourceshave been spent to keep cannabis illegal. Cannabis has been a powerful medicine for physical, mental, and spiritual health throughout the ages. This single plant represents a huge threat to the power structures and their industries, hence its seemingly senseless illegality. The approachingglobal reversal of the tyrannical policy of prohibition is the first of many concessions to come.

A Gathering of the Tribe — Mission COMPLETE

A Gathering of the Tribe — Mission COMPLETE
September 7, 2013
http://www.realitysandwich.com/gathering_tribeAll I can say is, reading this gave me goose bumps. Whoa nelly! Blessed is the day a piece of literature (data) resonates to one’s very core. A huge thank you to Jewell for sharing and even more gratitude to Charles Eisenstein for composing. This piece is very synchronistic considering all of the gatherings popping up all over the country and world lately. Even more synchronistic considering the plan a few of us are getting ready to launch in the not so far off future. I’m sure we’ll be making some announcements most likely in the coming week’s radio shows. Something FUN for everyone to participate in indeed 😉 What I can say is that reading this has brought me to a great sense of peace and inner knowing we are Absolutely on the right track. When the energetic trail shines so brightly all we can do is laugh, smile and start taking steps. God Almighty this is a freakin’ beautiful time to be alive. I hope you all In-Joy this as much as I have ❤ ~BK

Once upon a time a great tribe of people lived in a world far away from ours. Whether far away in space, or in time, or even outside of time, we do not know. They lived in a state of enchantment and joy that few of us today dare to believe could exist, except in those exceptional peak experiences when we glimpse the true potential of life and mind.

One day the shaman of the tribe called a meeting. They gathered around him, and he spoke very solemnly. “My friends,” he said, “there is a world that needs our help. It is called earth, and its fate hangs in the balance. Its humans have reached a critical point in their collective birthing, and they will be stillborn without our help. Who would like to volunteer for a mission to this time and place, and render service to humanity?”

“Tell us more about this mission,” they asked.

“I am glad you asked, because it is no small thing. I will put you into a deep, deep trance, so complete that you will forget who you are. You will live a human life, and in the beginning you will completely forget your origins. You will forget even our language and your own true name. You will be separated from the wonder and beauty of our world, and from the love that bathes us all. You will miss it deeply, yet you will not know what it is you are missing. You will only remember the love and beauty that we know to be normal as a longing in your heart. Your memory will take the form of an intuitive knowledge, as you plunge into the painfully marred earth, that a more beautiful world is possible.

“As you grow up in that world, your knowledge will be under constant assault. You will be told in a million ways that a world of destruction, violence, drudgery, anxiety, and degradation is normal. You may go through a time when you are completely alone, with no allies to affirm your knowledge of a more beautiful world. You may plunge into a depth of despair that we, in our world of light, cannot imagine. But no matter what, a spark of knowledge will never leave you. A memory of your true origin will be encoded in your DNA. That spark will lie within you, inextinguishable, until one day it is awakened.

“You see, even though you will feel, for a time, utterly alone, you will not be alone. I will send you assistance, help that you will experience as miraculous, experiences that you will describe as transcendent. For a few moments or hours or days, you will reawaken to the beauty and the joy that is meant to be. You will see it on earth, for even though the planet and its people are deeply wounded, there is beauty there still, projected from past and future onto the present as a promise of what is possible and a reminder of what is real.

“You will also receive help from each other. As you begin to awaken to your mission you will meet others of our tribe. You will recognize them by your common purpose, values, and intuitions, and by the similarity of the paths you have walked. As the condition of the planet earth reaches crisis proportions, your paths will cross more and more. The time of loneliness, the time of thinking you might be crazy, will be over.

“You will find the people of your tribe all over the earth, and become aware of them through the long-distance communication technologies used on that planet. But the real shift, the real quickening, will happen in face-to-face gatherings in special places on earth. When many of you gather together you will launch a new stage on your journey, a journey which, I assure you, will end where it began. Then, the mission that lay unconscious within you will flower into consciousness. Your intuitive rebellion against the world presented you as normal will become an explicit quest to create a more beautiful one.

“In the time of loneliness, you will always be seeking to reassure yourself that you are not crazy. You will do that by telling people all about what is wrong with the world, and you will feel a sense of betrayal when they don’t listen to you. You will be hungry for stories of wrongness, atrocity, and ecological destruction, all of which confirm the validity of your intuition that a more beautiful world exists. But after you have fully received the help I will send you, and the quickening of your gatherings, you will no longer need to do that. Because, you will Know. Your energy will thereafter turn toward actively creating that more beautiful world.”

A tribeswoman asked the shaman, “How do you know this will work? Are you sure your shamanic powers are great enough to send us on such a journey?”

The shaman replied, “I know it will work because I have done it many times before. Many have already been sent to earth, to live human lives, and to lay the groundwork for the mission you will undertake now. I’ve been practicing! The only difference now is that many of you will venture there at once. What is new in the time you will live in, is that the Gatherings are beginning to happen.”

A tribesman asked, “Is there a danger we will become lost in that world, and never wake up from the shamanic trance? Is there a danger that the despair, the cynicism, the pain of separation will be so great that it will extinguish the spark of hope, the spark of our true selves and origin, and that we will separated from our beloved ones forever?”

The shaman replied, “That is impossible. The more deeply you get lost, the more powerful the help I will send you. You might experience it at the time as a collapse of your personal world, the loss of everything important to you. Later you will recognize the gift within it. We will never abandon you.”

Another man asked, “Is it possible that our mission will fail, and that this planet, earth, will perish?”

The shaman replied, “I will answer your question with a paradox. It is impossible that your mission will fail. Yet, its success hangs on your own actions. The fate of the world is in your hands. The key to this paradox lies within you, in the feeling you carry that each of your actions, even your personal, secret struggles within, has cosmic significance. You will know then, as you do now, that everything you do matters. God sees everything.”

There were no more questions. The volunteers gathered in a circle, and the shaman went to each one. The last thing each was aware of was the shaman blowing smoke in his face. They entered a deep trance and dreamed themselves into the world where we find ourselves today.

****

Who are these missionaries from the more beautiful world? You and I are surely among them. Where else could this longing come from, for this magical place to be found nowhere on earth, this beautiful time outside of time? It comes from our intuitive knowledge of our origin and destination. The longing, indomitable, will never settle for a world that is less. Against all reason, we look upon the horrors of our age, mounting over the millennia, and we say NO, it does not have to be this way! We know it, because we have been there. We carry in our souls the knowledge that a more beautiful world is possible. Reason says it is impossible; reason says that even to slow — much less reverse — the degradation of the planet is an impossible task: politically unfeasible, opposed by the Money Power and its oligarchies. It is true that those powers will fight to uphold the world we have known. Their allies lurk within even ourselves: despair, cynicism, and resignation to carving out a life that is “good enough” for me and mine.

But we of the tribe know better. In the darkest despair a spark of hope lies inextinguishable within us, ready to be fanned into flames at the slightest turn of good news. However compelling the cynicism, a jejune idealism lives within us, always ready to believe, always ready to look upon new possibilities with fresh eyes, surviving despite infinite disappointments. And however resigned we may have felt, our aggrandizement of me and mine is half-hearted, for part of our energy is looking elsewhere, outward toward our true mission.

I would like to advise caution against dividing the world into two types of people, those who are of the tribe and those who are not. How often have you felt like an alien in a world of people who don’t get it and don’t care? The irony is that nearly everyone feels that way, deep down. When we are young the feeling of mission and the sense of magnificent origins and a magnificent destination is strong. Any career or way of life lived in betrayal of that knowing is painful, and can only be maintained through an inner struggle that shuts down a part of our being. For a time, we can keep ourselves functioning through various kinds of addictions or trivial pleasures to consume the life force and dull the pain. In earlier times, we might have kept the sense of mission and destiny buried for a lifetime, and called that condition maturity. Times are changing now though, as millions of people are awakening to their mission all at the same time. The condition of the planet is waking us up. Another way to put it, is that we are becoming young again.

When you feel that sense of alienation, when you look upon that sea of faces mired so inextricably in the old world and fighting to maintain it, think back to a time when you too were, to all outside appearances, a full and willing participant in that world as well. The same spark of revolution you carried then, the same secret refusal, dwells in all people. How was it that you finally stopped fighting it? How was it that you came to realize that you were right all along, that the world offered to us is wrong, and that no life is worth living that does not in some way strive to create a better one? How was it that it became intolerable to devote your life energy toward the perpetuation of the old world? Most likely, it happened when the old world fell apart around your ears.

As the multiple crises of money, health, energy, ecology, and more converge upon us, the world is going to collapse for millions more. We must stand ready to welcome them into the tribe. We must stand ready to welcome them back home.

The time of loneliness, of walking the path alone, of thinking maybe the world is right and I am wrong for refusing to participate fully in it… that time is over. For years we walked around talking about how wrong everything is: the political system, the educational system, religious institutions, the military-industrial complex, the banking industry, the medical system — really, any system you study deeply enough. We needed to talk about it because we needed to assure ourselves that we were not, in fact, crazy. We needed as well to talk about alternatives, the way things should be. “We” should eliminate CFCs. “They” should stop cutting down the rain forests. “The government” should declare no fishing zones. This talk, too, was necessary, for it validated our vision of the world that could be: a peaceful and exuberant humanity living in co-creative partnership with a wild garden earth.

The time, though, for talking merely to assure ourselves that we are right is coming to an end. People everywhere are tired of it, tired of attending yet another lecture, organizing yet another discussion group online. We want more. A few weeks ago as I was preparing for a speaking trip to Oregon, the organizers told me, “These people don’t need to be told what the problems are. They don’t even need to be told what the solutions are. They already know that, and many of them are already in action. What they want is to take their activism to the next level.”

To do that, to fully step into one’s mission here on earth, one must experience an inner shift that cannot be merely willed upon oneself. It does not normally happen through the gathering or receiving of information, but through various kinds of experiences that reach deep into our unconscious minds. Whenever I am blessed with such an experience, I get the sense that some benevolent yet pitiless power — the shaman in the story — has reached across the void to quicken me, to reorganize my DNA, to rewire my nervous system. I come away changed.

One way it happens is through the “gathering of the tribe” I described in this story. I think many people who attended the recent Reality Sandwich retreat in Utah experienced something like this. Such gatherings are happening now all over the world. You go back, perhaps, to “real life” afterwards, but it no longer seems so real. Your perceptions and priorities change. New possibilities emerge. Instead of feeling stuck in your routines, life changes around you at a vertiginous pace. The unthinkable becomes commonsense and the impossible becomes easy. It may not happen right away, but once the internal shift has occurred, it is inevitable.

Here I am, a speaker and a writer, going on about how the time for mere talk has ended. Yet not all words are mere talk. A spirit can ride the vehicle of words, a spirit that is larger than, yet not separate from, their meaning. Sometimes I find that when I bow into service, that spirit inhabits the space in which I speak and affects all present. A sacredness infuses our conversations and the non-verbal experiences that are becoming part of my events. In the absence of that sacredness, I feel like a smart-ass, up there entertaining people and telling them information they could just as easily read online. Last Friday night I spoke on a panel in New York, one of three smart-asses, and I think many in the audience left disappointed (though maybe not as disappointed as I was in myself). We are looking for something more, and it is finding us.

The revolutionary spark of our true mission has been fanned into flames before, only to return again to an ember. You may remember an acid trip in 1975, a Grateful Dead concert in 1982, a kundalini awakening in 1999 — an event that, in the midst of it, you knew was real, a privileged glimpse into a future that can actually manifest. Then later, as its reality faded into memory and the inertial routines of life consumed you, you perhaps dismissed it and all such experiences as an excursion from life, a mere “trip.” But something in you knows it was real, realer than the routines of normalcy. Today, such experiences are accelerating in frequency even as “normal” falls apart. We are at the beginning of a new phase. Our gatherings are not a substitute for action; they are an initiation into a state of being from which the necessary kinds of actions arise. Soon you will say, with wonder and serenity, “I know what to do, and I trust myself to do it.”
