"When a woman is empowered through this alignment she becomes exactly what nature intended her to be: sexy, articulate, intuitive, playful, feeling and healing. As the bearer of children, she carries the baton of life force energy through to the next generation. And because she is compelled to seek compassionate quality connection with those in her intimate circle, she is the connector, creating and re-creating the web of life that sustains us all. Her primary drive is to conserve, nurture maintain and support. With the planet teetering at the brink of exhaustion, it is the feminine principle that is now needed to redress the imbalance and heal."

To truly realise the depth and majesty of our expanded self, we have to master the direct confrontation of the moment. It’s all about performing inner alchemy. There’s essentially two forms of consciousness that make up our existential being: the separation consciousness that forms the bodymind, and the unity consciousness that forms the soul. If you include various disruptive energies of society’s matrix, everything we experience from thoughts, to emotions and feelings are caused by the interaction of these various flows of consciousness. How might ‘we’ - as presence - be able to positively influence the internal dynamic?…

Creating your own reality?
Some speak of shaping the thoughts in order to master beingness, but to me, this is simply a case of the tail wagging the dog. The same goes for ‘creating your own reality’. Sure, we do create our own reality, but what do we mean exactly by ‘our’? In most cases the identity doing the manifestation is just a more subtle form of ego - a spiritual identity - that wants to control the situation in some particular way because it cannot accept what is already unfolding.
We are already shaping and creating everything we experience. Either the true self - the soul - is shining through and creating harmonious experiences or else the false self is influencing the show, by resistance to what’s currently happening, denial or just plain insensitivity. We might feel a creative impulse for something to happen, only for the flow to get derailed by internal eddy currents of life’s conditioning.
In which case you can’t simply ‘paper over the cracks’, by manipulating the outer pieces on the game board without first uncovering and unwinding what’s really happening inside. To do so, is simply to perpetuate the disharmony through our lives. Even though the circumstances may change - our jobs, relationships or location - the patterns remain the same. Instead, we need to look deeply into the outer mirror we’re already creating. This includes our most intense and intimate feelings towards it, no matter how challenging or painful. Then there’s a requirement to notice the blind spots, the grey areas in these points of attachment where presence closes down and gets drawn into the fray through identification.

Grasping the hot coals
The only way out is through. We have to feel the fullness of these retractions from the moment. You have to grasp the hot coals and feel the heat before you drop them. If you retract in the face of the heat or the pain or the heartache, be it emotional, physical or mental, then in that moment, you have reconfirmed your identification with the heat and with that your separation from the all that is. You have made yourself a victim of the sense of separation and crystalised that as your reality.

The key is transcendence: feeling through the heat of the moment until the coals define you no longer. You become the heat, the pain, the tension, the discomfort and soften into it. You become so totally at-one with it, that you no longer build internal references, structures and judgments around the situations. It is in these totally lucid moments you become absolutely authentic and free. You have transcended the limitation of identification and dropped into the void of infinite potential. From here, anything can happen. The authentic flow of the soul ignites, fueled by the unstoppable force of the universe.
To master such transcendence is to increase our inner intimacy - to bring absolute attention into our bodily field, to know when we retract, resist and deny. Bringing presence into these blind spots automatically begins to unwind them, liberating the soul as a free flowing spontaneity through the moment. There is nothing that feels better, more harmonious or complete. This is truly living.

The path to Bodhidharma
It is the Openhand Approach to life and I’ve found it very aligned with some of the ancient eastern teachings such as that of the monk Bodhidharma. I came across his work some years ago through a lovely synchronicity and felt to share a glimpse here…
In the old days in China there was a priest called Master Tozan. A monk asked him “how can we escape from this severe heat and cold?” This is not just a question about severe heat and cold. It is a question about the reality we are always facing - a melancholy and difficult reality, a reality that is full of suffering. People are sick and in pain: people have lost their homes in disasters and wars and have nothing in which to believe any longer and are suffering in their despair. For those whose belongings have all been destroyed, their refuge in the material world has been shown to be empty and meaningless. This kind of pain is always occurring all around us.
Master Tozan answered the monk, “You have to go where there is no hot and no cold!”
The monk continued, “Where is that place where there is no hot or cold? Where is that true place of refuge for the mind?”
The priest answered, “When it is hot, become that heat completely! When it is cold, become one with that cold completely and totally! When it is painful, become that pain completely and totally, and when you are miserable, become that misery totally and completely! In the very midst of that, go beyond all the thoughts you hold in your mind, let go of all the ideas of good or bad or gain or loss - let go of all of these thoughts - and from there grasp that place of your very own vivid life energy! That which directly experienes that ‘ouch’ - feel that life energy directly, grasp that life energy that feels that pain and sorrow.” More important than finding a place out of pain and suffering, or trying to find a place where there is no pain or suffering, is to go directly to that place where the pain and suffering are being experienced, to go where you feel that pain and sadness directly and totally. Touch that life energy directly and with your own experience. Use that actual direct experience which you have grasped as your base, and stand up strong and firm. This is how the master answered the monk.

Phoenix from the ashes
Of course this advice is not just for the metaphoric physical feeling of hot and cold. We may apply it to every aspect of our lives. Especially in relationships for example where we might suffer emotional or psychological trauma.
As it’s happening, we must not deny it, but rather go into the very heart of the contraction and become as one with it - to soften into it - in the way described above. Then the bubble of identification bursts, the void of silence is touched, the soul rises like a pheonix from the ashes and a new, more harmonious reality takes shape.
Finally, the majesty of the expanded self is realised.

"I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality."

Please let this short, powerful video transform your life from this moment on. It is an important time for all of us.. necessary transformations are taking place.. it’s time to tune into the love frequency and recognize our unity so we can concentrate our consciousness on making this reality a much happier place for everyone.

This universe is a mass shared dream that all six-and-a-half billion of us are collaboratively dreaming up into materialization. When we realize this, we can put our lucidity together so that we can co-creatively dream a much more grace-filled universe into incarnation. This is nothing other than an evolutionary quantum leap in human consciousness, unimaginable until now.

Happy New Moon! Starting off a new astrological year with our moon and sun in Aries.. “Time to courageously bear the light and express love without any doubt or fear.” I knew I felt especially charged today.. So many reasons why! As above, so below. ;) Read all about the energetic surge by clicking the above link.

Was there ever a more horrible blasphemy than to say that all the knowledge of God is confined in this or that book? How dare men call God infinite, and yet try to compress Him into the covers of a little book!

2013-2015 are the years of understanding and forgiveness; the years of faith.

The new energy is unfolding now: the female energy is helping us to change our destiny.

This is a time of great change and we, Humanity, choose how much we want to change. There is a big responsibility now for all of us.

If somebody is hungry, if somebody is lost, if somebody is not loved, we must understand that we are now ONE. We cannot remain blind now to what is around us. Our Mother Earth is helping and loving us but now we must be ONE Heart, ONE energy, ONE Love.

We can no longer promote anger and fear. We are now totally in another energy.

More than anything, be kind to yourself, forgive yourself and love yourself now. If you make a commitment to 2013, 2014 and 2015, make it to forgive yourself and love yourself and all around you. Be kind to yourself and be kind to the community. Love Mother Earth and open your heart.

Now is the time for you to speak the truth: make your real feelings and beliefs known. Speak your truth with love. Reveal who you really are to yourself and others. Allow other people to see your true nature. You will be spiritually supported by the Ascended Masters.

Your relationships will deepen because you will know that you are loved for who you really are. Trust that your authentic self is lovable and likable. Allow others to get to know the real you. Let go of judgments about yourself or others.

You have nothing to fear. A new flow of prosperity is supporting you and your loved ones. You have the support to make a desired life change right now.

Now every situation offers opportunities to grow and learn. Know that everything is in Divine and perfect order. Remember that your clear and focused intentions, prayers and action steps all create the manifestations you desire. Have faith now in a positive outcome.

Now is the time to balance yourself. Balance your male and female energy by practicing both giving and receiving daily. Forgive yourself for what you may have done or not done. Have compassion for everyone around you. It is time to let go of struggle, anger and resentment. Trust that the Universe is supporting you and it is on your side.

As Drunvalo said; we are about to enter a window of the time that has no name, but is inside the Mayan END OF TIME window that was connected to December 21, 2012 and will end in about three years. This window begins on February 18th, 2013 and continues for about three and a half months until June 2nd, 2013. However, it could last as long as until the end of August if the circumstances change. From a Mayan point of view, we must be ready to move into ascension at any moment over the next three years or so. This means staying in meditation, and keeping your heart light as a feather and interconnected to your brain.

Having started out on the way of spiritual life, having accepted your spiritual assignment here, do not fear the dangers of human forgetfulness and mortal inconstancy, do not be troubled with doubts of failure or by perplexing confusion, do not falter and question your status and standing, because in every dark hour, at every crossroad in the forward struggle, the Spirit of Truth will always speak, saying, “This is the way.”

Had to share in case someone else needed to hear this message. We are experiencing exciting times of change, but I see many people faltering as they become fearful from listening to the fear porn being broadcasted everywhere. It is important to believe in yourself, and to believe in a positive outcome. Having faith and courage is key: it will help us manifest an ideal future, where everyone respects each other as well as our home planet and all of creation.
It’s time to create, and to repair our world from the destruction we have caused. I have faith in the power of humanity, to first restore ourselves, and then to restore peace, love, and life throughout the planet. I have faith in you. xoxoKP.

Remember: Be Here Now! Good theme for today, and EVERY day.

I know I’ve been letting my mind wander away with its thoughts lately, and they all have something to do with attachment. I would like to be giving my thoughts less attention, so I can be focused on the here & now, since that is when the magic happens. I thought maybe if I needed a reminder, someone else possibly does too. xoxoKP.


If You Want to Change the World, Love a Woman (2008)

If you want to change the world… love a woman-really love her. Find the one who calls to your soul, who doesn’t make sense. Throw away your check list and put your ear to her heart and listen. Hear the names, the prayers, the songs of every living thing-every winged one, every furry and scaled one, every underground and underwater one, every green and flowering one,every not yet born and dying one…
Hear their melancholy praises back to the One who gave them life. If you haven’t heard your own name yet, you haven’t listened long enough. If your eyes aren’t filled with tears, if you aren’t bowing at her feet, you haven’t ever grieved having almost lost her. If you want to change the world… love a woman-one woman beyond yourself, beyond desire and reason, beyond your male preferences for youth, beauty and variety and all your superficial concepts of freedom.

We have given ourselves so many choices we have forgotten that true liberation comes from standing in the middle of the soul’s fire and burning through our resistance to Love.
There is only one Goddess. Look into Her eyes and see-really see if she is the one to bring the axe to your head.
If not, walk away. Right now. Don’t waste time “trying.”
Know that your decision has nothing to do with her because ultimately it’s not with who, but when we choose to surrender.

If you want to change the world… love a woman. Love her for life-beyond your fear of death, beyond your fear of being manipulated by the Mother inside your head. Don’t tell her you’re willing to die for her. Say you’re willing to LIVE with her, plant trees with her and watch them grow. Be her hero by telling her how beautiful she is in her vulnerable majesty,
by helping her to remember every day that she IS Goddess
through your adoration and devotion.

If you want to change the world… love a woman in all her faces, through all her seasons and she will heal you of your schizophrenia-your double-mindedness and half-heartedness which keeps your Spirit and body separate-
which keeps you alone and always looking outside your Self
for something to make your life worth living. There will always be another woman. Soon the new shiny one will become the old dull one and you’ll grow restless again, trading in women like cars, trading in the Goddess for the latest object of your desire. Man doesn’t need any more choices. What man needs is Woman, the Way of the Feminine, of Patience and Compassion, non-seeking, non-doing, of breathing in one place and sinking deep intertwining roots strong enough to hold the Earth together
while she shakes off the cement and steel from her skin.

If you want to change the world… love a woman, just one woman. Love and protect her as if she is the last holy vessel.
Love her through her fear of abandonment which she has been holding for all of humanity. No, the wound is not hers to heal alone. No, she is not weak in her codependence.

If you want to change the world… love a woman
all the way through until she believes you, until her instincts, her visions, her voice, her art, her passion, her wildness have returned to her-until she is a force of love more powerful
than all the political media demons who seek to devalue and destroy her.

If you want to change the world, lay down your causes, your guns and protest signs. Lay down your inner war, your righteous anger and love a woman…beyond all of your striving for greatness, beyond your tenacious quest for enlightenment. The holy grail stands before you if you would only take her in your arms and let go of searching for something beyond this intimacy.

What if peace is a dream which can only be re-membered
through the heart of Woman? What if a man’s love for Woman, the Way of the Feminine is the key to opening Her heart?

If you want to change the world…love a woman
to the depths of your shadow, to the highest reaches of your Being, back to the Garden where you first met her,
to the gateway of the rainbow realm where you walk through together as Light as One, to the point of no return, to the ends and the beginning of a new Earth.

Painting “Shiva & Parvathi” by Peter Engelhardt,

Our Generation

Our generation will be known for nothing.
Never will anybody say,
We were the peak of mankind.
That is wrong, the truth is
Our generation was a failure.
Thinking that
We actually succeeded
Is a waste. And we know
Living only for money and power
Is the way to go.
Being loving, respectful, and kind
Is a dumb thing to do.
Forgetting about that time,
Will not be easy, but we will try.
Changing our world for the better
Is something we never did.
Giving up
Was how we handled our problems.
Working hard
Was a joke.
We knew that
People thought we couldn’t come back
That might be true,
Unless we turn things around

Whuut so THIS is why I keep seeing mountains with giant bare patches missing from the forest?! Our government is stealing trees (logging) from our national forests in order to sell them to China for a meager profit. Despicable. Read all about it. xoxoKP

Agreed, Mr. David Attenborough ;]

The fight for truth, nature, higher consciousness, and human rights has ALREADY BEGUN. We must show support for our brothers and sisters who see truth and appreciate the natural world; those who have respect for this miraculous universe and all the beings within. We must guard ourselves against those who are against our most basic freedoms. Do NOT stand aside and allow this evil to take control. Believe in yourself. Believe in our planet. Believe in truth, knowledge, and the Great Natural Spirit. Radiate vibrations of love and excitement, for if you stand by nature she will stand by you— you’re on the winning team. Do not let fear propaganda and intimidation persuade you to lower your energy level to the frequencies of fear and anger. Our power is in LOVE and HOPE and FAITH and COURAGE and COMMUNITY. We can do this. We can fight for our planet, for our rights, and for a better world. I love you all.
