Coming Together for Humanity 2016

Throughout my travels I have been in many situations where people came together to handle a conflict or situation where there was no, police, guard or military to enforce “law and order.”  In every situation people would come together for the sake of humanity and use natural law and self-rule. In other words, people did what was right and seemed to be guided from their wisdom and their heart.

In “modern” society we are led to believe through misleading news stories and other media  that our neighbors are to be feared and we must have policing, cameras and rules to be safe from our terrifying neighbors especially those from other neighborhoods. This has kept us from discovering the beauty in each other and has literally created disharmony against each other. When given a chance to self-rule, people will follow natural order. People understand our human nature and respect humanity. People when called upon to lead and support will do what is fair and just. People do not need fear of prosecution to do what is right.  These blanketed rules and laws linked with prosecution causes more rebellion and dis-harmony against society.

There is a famous quote by Helen Keller which goes “Avoiding danger, in the long run, is no safer than outright exposure. The meek get caught as often as the bold.”

This is a natural law. It is what we speak about in yoga as Dharma, natural law, natural order. Even the safest cars, the toughest laws and the best laid plans will not hold up to what is to be or what could be. It is the same as decriminalizing drugs. When we decriminalize drugs, drugs are used less and society prospers more. Laws and fear of prosecutions only destabilize society.

The best way we can begin to experience harmony with each other is to use more of our intuition and heart. yes it’s true even a handshake with someone we thought we could trust might end up in trouble, but the more we fine-tune our instincts the more we begin to attract and even create harmonious relations. One way to do this is to go back to the original intuitive building exercise, meditation. Meditation connects us with the highest source of intuition and heart, and in the heart is where our future experiences receive light.

There is a wave of intuition and heart space building  within humanity that is growing larger. Like a tsunami, the power behind our growing heart and influence of natural order will overcome.

The media and leaders want us to fear the massive amount of police and military that have been created to keep order to the “laws.” The one thing to remember is that these people who are the police and military are blue-collar people with families and children. It doesn’t take much intelligence to know what is right when it comes to being a good person to our family and friends.  As our prayers and meditations grow, the light will penetrate and reveal itself in the hearts of those employed to do harm to humanity for the sake of laws designed to oppress the people.

Our brothers, sisters, fathers and mothers in the service sector will in the end, be there to protect us, not harm us. Believe in this idea and the idea will blossom.

Start first by self-ruling yourself. Just because someone mistakenly does something out of the norm or law, if it is not harming anyone or anything, be love. If someone swerves into your lane, notify but don’t chastise.  begin to live a life of natural law not “criminal law.” Become a support to the human nature we all fall into. “Thee who has no sin throw the first stone,” I once heard. 🙂

In fact,  follow less rules and life in more harmony with the natural law.  Moral disobedience, let’s break more laws in order to find order and harmony in a natural way!

Matriarchal Control, Women and Feminism

There was a time, I am told, when we thrived in harmony as a Matriarchal society.  Men were simply around for labor and reproduction… and a little fun, I’m sure.

But this has been long forgotten with generations of destruction to the feminine power, burning of witches and books etc. The takeover of the Patriarchal with its overblown ego attachment to fear through the ages, has nearly destroyed our existence.

In the 70’s, there was the visual outpouring of what had been years of repression from women worldwide. Women were taking charge and kicking ass, opening doors, and re-patterning societal views.It became known as the feminist movement or “feminism.”

ism

ˈizəm/

noun  informal derogatory

noun: ism; plural noun: isms

  1. a distinctive practice, system, or philosophy, typically a political ideology or an artistic movement.

This movement was powerful from it’s physical standpoint. In this movement women had to speak the language of men and act like men in order to be heard, and at the same time fostering a bit of hatred towards men. This in turn put “femininity” in the background for decades. Women were becoming more like men with aggressive behavior which is confusing for the feminine energy. Women were adopting the masculine role in society. The movement brought more equality for women but was a little twisted in some ways. Some say it was a ploy for men to stay in power by de-feminizing women further.

I don’t know any men who prefer a woman to be like a man.  Heterosexual men naturally know their innate tendencies to lose control when a woman squares with her femininity.  So the idea of feminism, though it allowed women to be heard, disintegrated femininity. It seemed necessary to crack some heads and make a clear statement of power, but disintegrated feminine power.

In this New Age of thought about humanity’s existence being in an evolutionary phase, we have gathered by the millions in groups all across the planet to call forth the feminine power to heal. Not the feminist power, but the feminine power.

We are learning to release destructive habits and in turn learn new ways to live and new behaviors to adopt. We are beginning to harmonize heart and mind/body. We seek love for the heart of humankind with the body of Mother Earth. Mother Earth is our life giver. She sustains us and protects us. If we live in harmony with all life on earth, then we can live in abundance, joy and bliss.

The shift is to let go of the fearful and destructive behaviors of the masculine energy. The masculine doesn’t understand how to trust in life. So its fear creates behaviors to protect itself. Fear feels threatened, feels the need to get ahead of the others, to stock-up, and so on. This behavior then leads to more fear that others will take from them, hence the idea of protection, guns, borders, insurance plans, and so on. The never- ending cycle of fear has humanity in a tailspin. Humans have been trying to fix the problem with the same mind that created the problems. This is a behavior in self destruction.

The movie, Avatar, provides a glimpse into the broader horizon for humanity to exist beyond the fear-based power of the Patriarchal society. Today, there are leaders among us whom are living examples of this lifestyle. If men let go of the reigns and release themselves into roles which support women, we can really shift.  Think about it logically (from a man’s brain). Women get to run the show, grandma and grandpa run the kids, and man runs the tools, goes out to work and comes home to procreate and have some fun with his toys.  Isn’t that what men have been wanting anyway?

I believe that it was the  extraction of men from the supportive roles into leadership roles which caused such problems. Men are not equipped for this an in turn use force like a child, afraid and confused.

The biggest challenge is to remove men from power who are not balanced in their understanding and harmony of the feminine. Men are powerful in their creations, but when the physical creation process becomes the only thing that matters, we lose our balance in humanitarian affairs.  Humanity has suffered the fate of this behavior.

We need the strong feminine…but have enough women healed themselves to step into these roles? This is the weak link. There have been few women who embrace the truth of the feminine without clinging to the old man/woman roles or continuing to be whimpering  victims. Real women do exist and more and more are stepping up as candidates for leadership. The strong ones know who they are and with of sense of emerging as an introvert, these women are revealing themselves. It is our responsibility as a society to recognize these strengths and nurture them. The good thing for humanity is that the new generations are becoming more androgynous and this in itself will support our greatest evolution in history, if we survive long enough for our children to grow.

Men……get back to the playground and let the teachers, Curanderas, Kahunas and Shaman lay the guidelines for our future existence.  We must look at this like a person who became addicted to a bad drug. Once the addict comes to the realization of imminent death if it continues, the addiction must stop, immediately, cold turkey. We are at that critical point. We must all stop the way we are living, now. Everyone must adopt a new concept. Though this is nearly impossible given the current brain power of most humans, leaders and super humans must set the guidelines so the masses can follow. (The masses are just a large bulk of energy which can be guided.) If the masses wish to die so be it. If humanity wishes to continue, we must adopt new thoughts about life, the thoughts of wisdom which we’ve forgotten.  Children, take control. Parents, nurture new thought in your children.  Let’s develop new behaviors for humanity. Hell, I am happy to let the feminine lead the way. Maybe now we can all feel safe in the arms of the great mother.

For a personal moment toward devotion to change follow this beautiful healing ceremony.

Hope to see you another day.

The Energy of Oneness

Ten turtles were feeding in the waters below me off the reef. We were having a sunrise picnic. Such a gentle creature and fun to swim with. Look into their eyes and see the universal expression of the song. Look into the eyes of a goat, a turtle a chicken or the family dog and see the same expressions. The expressions we all know so well, expressions of love or fear.

turtle-town-07

Anyone who’s cared for an animal recognizes in their eyes the responses of their environment in its acute form. Each moment is a direct reflection of the song. Is the song love or fear? The eyes are universal.  Sometimes we have to refine our powers of observation to see clearly but they’re there.

happy-dog-02

The eyes of love are harmonious to the song of love, the feelings of joy. The eyes of fear are experiencing the vibrational energy of disharmony.

Harmony, comes from tuning into the song which feels like a melody, a vibration any human would enjoy. Since joy is what we wish to have in our lives, the more we practice creating joy the more it will be reflected to us. A harmonious song is easy to listen to whereas a disharmonious song or voice is almost painful to hear.

disharmonious sounds

To be in tune to the harmony is to discover the frequency which creates a feeling of perfection, a natural and welcoming vibration. “Perfection” itself is a misnomer. We are perfectly imperfect and life is perfect with both benevolent and malevolent behaviors. So what is perfection and is “harmony” only representative of good?   Good and bad are only judgments based on one’s belief system which are individually created so harmony has nothing to do with good or bad. It is irrelevant to the song.

When a beautiful song is played be it from a genre of metal or a symphony the order and method of the song brings forth a sense of perfection. Like a fractal managing the chaos of life’s ripple of energy. It is the path of least resistance, the natural path.

enjoying the soud

I don’t know why it works this way. There is a sacred harmony, notes played in a way that sings to the heart. It creates a joy we get to experience it. It is a method of being human which makes it worth the trip. The sweet song of harmony which provides joy in the human experience makes our days worth while. The harmony can be seen in the eyes of any woman or man, four-legged, winged or furry one. The harmony is the eyes of love, contentment and joy.

We live within this natural law, the pain/pleasure principle. All living creatures as small as the paramecium draw towards that which is pleasurable and draws away from that which is unpleasant.  We are in constant motion to make life more comfortable for us even within our own bodies.

connections

Though pain and pleasure are parts of the song, we get to choose which energy to mold our lives around. Whereas animals represent themselves in perfect truth moment to moment, humans have this unique ability to hide their truth and expressions to others. Those they relate with can choose to be in denial with them. In these experiences we feel the after-effects, the prolonged expression of our minds own prison, guilt and regret. We either learn from our experiences to develop a stronger path of truth or stay in denial and repeat patterns. We do not need to continue to experience war and oppression to know it is not desirable. We already have the programing to know what behaviors would be joyful just by reading the description.  It’s our choice to order from the menu, the experience of disharmony. We don’t have to.

woman-with-menu

Even if our current circumstance is painful, we can turn our eyes to the path of a better feeling, a more comfortable experience within and therefore a turn in events. True joy really is felt within. The outer experiences are like frosting on the cake, a tangible feeling as a result of our inner self.  When it feels exhilarating, we are in the place of respect and compassion for all humans within the song of life. This is where we see the possibility of our society in freedom and wellness, where the eyes of your fellow human are serene in the harmonious beauty of the song of ourselves. To find harmony we must first be in tune. Have compassion and allow for the bliss to be nurtured within all.  Decide in every moment if your actions have created harmony or resisted the natural flow and caused unexplained fear or pain.  Learn to speak less, listen more and be okay with keeping your opinion to yourself once and awhile. Share your heart through your eyes. “You must be the change you wish to see in the world” ~ Mahatma Ghandi

Conscious Tourism

Think of a time, not too long ago, when people were romantic – the sky is deep blue, the sea is clear, and the air is warm. Vivid colors of nature and breathtaking waterfalls in the mountains surround you. Your body is blessed by living outdoors and eating the abundant fruits that grow effortlessly all around. Your heart feels the natural affinity of love. Life is so vibrant you name your children after the elements in nature. The land requires strength and respect. This is Hawaii, a place so blessed and powerful that the people mold everything around this respect and gratitude. It has been the way until modern slavery and corporate greed began killing life on this great example of haumea (Mother Earth).

This is not isolated to Hawaii. Exponential population growth combined with the inertia from generations of bad habits has our earth cultures scrambling for solutions. Leaders of new thought are working to awaken more people each day to the power within them to harmonize with the natural laws of earth, Dharma.

As the growth of tourism increase on Maui, the impact has residents rallying together to conserve this blessed land (stolen in 1893), and is slowly losing all of its natural resources. But within this steady flow of tourism is a revelation of insight, a blessing, a method by which knowledge and wisdom can be shared.

Here on Maui resides a large population of Mother Earth’s leaders. Natives of Hawaii who carry the wisdom of their indigenous families. Others have been attracted to the island with wisdom to support and teach the laws of Mother Earth and enjoy the simple life gifted by nature. Moving to the island is not a given right. The people who are of the island have the fire naturally within them. Others have to discover it and answer to it from the truth within the heart. It’s a rite-of-passage, a personal, emotional fire which scorches the illusion of reality to bring forth the giant within. Maui, within it’s beauty, is a sweet nectar that will metaphysically transform the blood of all who are bold enough to partake. In yoga, we speak of this fire within as a force which burns through to reveal the true self. The fears of life have much of society afraid to discover and accept this inner self.

Throughout the world, social norms were developed out of fear and ignorance which now threatens life on earth. Today, the leaders are here to create a new reality. There is a power force on this island, the power of Mother Gaia’s heart. Those who make a stand to actualize change within themselves ignite the fire of change for people worldwide.

There is a wealth of knowledge being developed on Maui regarding the natural affinity for health and joy on this planet. Ancient knowledge brushed aside as folklore to give science priority over common sense is being reawakened and practiced. Within this ancient wisdom lies the truth of the simplicity of human survival and happiness.

Today, true leaders all over the earth are providing methods of alchemy towards happiness. Sometimes called “lightworkers,” on Maui, these leaders are immersed in wisdom of the natural elements of life. This wisdom is expressed in the teachings of organic and self-sustaining permaculture, natural healing, cultural harmony, and reclamation of Earth’s resources. These devoted leaders and teachers are not fighters in defense of a cause, as much as, masters of revelation – sharing the romantic passion of life.

Visitors of any sacred place on Earth shall realize that there is a kuleana (responsibility) to nurture our own inner wisdom – our personal coming of age. Maui asks visitors to discover something deeper than a luau at a favorite hotel. Discover the meaning of Aloha, attend a conscious class, a self-awakening/strengthening retreat, or an educational tour in support of the knowledge that people of the planet are in desperate need of. Embrace the knowledge close to the heart and allow sharing to happen naturally within circles at home. There is so much a visitor of these Hawai’ian islands can do to consciously support Hawai’ian communities and one’s hometown. A deep personal commitment is normally felt as a conscious shift, a feeling of personal harmony with what is commonly known as the ‘right thing to do.’

Maui is also where teachers and leaders from other lands come to partake in strengthening their inner power with the wisdom flowing through the vortex. Come enjoy life as you develop the leader within you. Put yourself in the fire so that nobody else can burn you. Bring home a piece of Maui. Make your visit fulfilling to the point of tears and help bring wisdom to the people worldwide.
