We are now in a world of globalisation, with levelling forces such as the internet putting power back in the hands of the individual.

The old materialistic paradigm was based on power and control, on hierarchical structures, on suppression and manipulation.

The new paradigm is based on cooperation and collaboration, on sharing and community.

Spirituality is developing in the same way, away from the institutional and organisational setups, and towards individual spirituality.

We have to leave the organisations behind and do it for ourselves.

We can each get in touch with our own inner spirituality, and from this position of individual strength we can join together with our fellow beings (using the new global censorship-free communication tools), and build the new age world - a world of collaboration and cooperation, built from our core inner natures of selfless love, compassion, spiritual might, and peace.

The future is bright for those who seek the light.

the time of tents is over

Occupy, in its mindset, is replaying the last breath of a revolutionary alternative to Capitalism from forty years ago... It is as if the children of the hippies and Maoists had taken to the streets to re-enact the dreams of their parents...

Power has now moved way from a centre, a head, a building, a location... People that are tied to a place are powerless...

All too easily Occupy has become two things: a thing that you LIKE on Facebook, and a personal self-improvement/endurance test in a tent. Neither of which have any effect on the flow of capital.

Capital does not occupy, it abandons, that is its threat and its power. To overthrow it we too must abandon, not occupy. We must abandon the non-places that Capital has colonised our countries with and invest in rebuilding real places once again. We must move our money to local credit unions, to local commodities and jobs; to circulation with local people. We must take what little we have and invest it in the places we inhabit and we must abandon their places, their malls and streets, their stores and banks. This is how we occupy. Not by pitching a tent on a piece of land and saying Here I am, count my number. But by silence, secrecy and abandonment.

The time of tents is over.

awakening from the darkness

For too long we, the human race, have been asleep spiritually.

We have forgotten our divinity and worthiness, and we have given away our power and uniqueness. We have allowed a few to control and mould us en-masse into something we are not by nature. We have let others impose limitations on us, thinking mistakenly that this will make us feel accepted, loved, valued or safe. This is why there is so much pain and suffering within the world.

Do not blame others, or God, for this, for we are all responsible, individually and collectively, for accepting this situation.

Now it is time to waken up and reconnect with our essential divinity and worthiness. Then we will see beyond the illusions of hierarchies and separation: our apparent limitations will fade away.

Your are not your social status, race, or religion. You are not the reflection or projection of another. You are a caretaker of Mother Earth, and all life upon her - we all are. We are all responsible for ourselves and for looking after each other.

We have been in darkness for a long time, but a new dawn is rising. Now we are awakening to the light that was always hidden within each and every one of us. Now we are tuning in to the waves of love and potential that are pulling our vibrational frequencies upwards.

Now we are remembering once again our divinity, our value, and our inner power. Now we are connecting to our hearts and souls, and our inner love light is starting to radiate out to others.

Now we are joining together, not for selfish ends, but for the highest good of all.

an enlightened society

The notion of an enlightened society is not some magical community wherein everyone has attained nirvana, or even has the perfect job or relationship. An enlightened society is actually very practical: it is a society based on having an open heart...

Worrying solely about "me" gets tiresome after a while. In other words, in order to really create positive change in the world, we need to shift our focus away from only thinking about ourselves...

Imagine what it would be like if one day everyone woke up and decided to shift the focus of their day away from always holding themselves at the center of the universe? What if each of us made our day about benefiting others?..

True joy does not come from acquiring new gadgets or starting another steamy romance, but from being present with your life. It comes from turning your attention away from always thinking about yourself, and opening to the world around you...

Through slowing down and being present with your world, you are more open to the suffering around you. Your heartstrings can be pulled by the simplest things: a puppy waiting to be adopted or a beautiful flower just beginning to blossom. While you may previously have walked right by these things, now you are open and available to your world. You feel an inherent richness and tenderness...

The simplest and most direct way to create positive change in the world is through connecting with our own awakened heart... Simple acts of being present and compassionate bring us happiness. We find joy in being openhearted...

You don't have to wait until you're enlightened. You don't have to ask anyone's permission. You just have to offer yourself, as you are, and allow your vulnerable heart to transform the world.

last gasp

The job of national and international politicians in contractionary times is typically to make a bad situation worse as expensively as possible, as they attempt to rescue the dying paradigm that has conveyed so much personal advantage in their direction. That paradigm is one of centralization - the accumulation of surpluses from a broad periphery at the centre of power.

However, the wealth conveyors of the past are breaking down, meaning that the periphery that can be drawn upon is shrinking. As the periphery shrinks, the remaining region within the grip of power can expect to be squeezed harder and harder. 'Twas ever thus. Rome did the same thing, squeezing the peasants for tithes until they abandoned their land and threw in their lot with the surrounding barbarians.

the machine will stop

Entropy ensures that our technologies become ever more complex and inter-dependent. Some devices may seem simpler to use - automatic lights and wipers on our cars, for example - but, under the hood, simple mechanical switches have been replaced by complex systems in sealed boxes, with sensors connected. Machines may appear to simplify our lives, but when they go wrong we are increasingly at their mercy. Our machines are no longer fixable: instead of repairing or replacing a single faulty part, an entire subsystem is replaced, or more often the whole machine is discarded, and replaced with a new one... the old one is "obsolete" anyway! This is a tremendous waste of the dwindling resources of our planet. Meanwhile we become ever more dependent on our machines, needing sophisticated machines to fix (or replace) our sophisticated machines: for example, cars now require computer diagnostics to be repairable.

More alarmingly, our whole civilisation has become globally interdependent. We have created one vast mothering machine to succour all of us from birth through death. Our distribution networks become ever more centralised - we depend on one giant global system for almost all of our food, fuel, and other supplies. When one link in this chain fails, the effects are immediate and widespread. "Just in time" practices have eliminated inventories to streamline the system and reduce costs: this is more efficient, but also much more vulnerable to failure.

The new-paradigm design of the internet indicates how our systems of the future should be: the internet is massively distributed and massively failsafe. It was designed to survive nuclear warfare. However the other systems we depend on to keep body and soul together have not been designed following new-paradigm principles: they are old-paradigm at its worst: massively centralised and massively dependent. This makes sense to the money men in the short term (which is all they look at), but it is catastrophic for even the medium term future of the human race. One major failure, which could be caused at any time by natural disaster or manmade disaster (warfare, terrorism, mistake), and our global centralised distribution system will fail a great many of us, almost literally overnight.

We have lost our local distribution systems, and our local skills. We cannot survive a major breakdown in our mother system in the way that, say, the Soviet people survived their economic collapse - they were accustomed to looking after themselves anyway, growing their own food, helping their neighbours - but we have become completely dependent on our mother system, which has lulled us into a very false sense of security by appearing to do its job very well indeed. Why trail all afternoon around many small shops like a pack animal to get the household supplies when one deftly trundled trolley around the supermarket quickly yields a better selection at lower prices? Indeed why drive to the supermarket and why walk around it and queue at the till, when a few mouse clicks online will result in delivery of all of our requirements to the doorstep later the same day?

The mother system seems to make our lives easier, albeit in a soulless way - a supermarket visit really does make us feel like we are in a machine, part of a system, and many of us miss the friendly chat with local shop assistants of days gone by. But, having killed the alternatives off, the mother machine has made us totally dependent on it. When it fails we are in big trouble. And it will fail. The machine will stop.

everything is possible

…we are entering into a period of increasingly massive social dislocations and disorder which harbors within it countless risks, defeats, dangers, false dawns and fake defeats. But…we are all coming to the powerful and simple realization that human beings acting peacefully together in concert can do anything–and nothing can stop them.

Something is happening. Something is shifting in the relations between politics and power. We don’t know where it will lead, but the four-decade ideological consensus that has simply allowed the creation of grotesque inequality has broken down, and anything and everything is suddenly possible.

a better world

We already have, and always have had, potential abundance at our fingertips. The scarcity that so many experience today is not the result of any fundamental lack, but rather of the maldistribution of political power and resources. What kind of abundance would we have if we didn't spend trillions of dollars on wars, guns, non-recyclable packaging, sprawling suburbs, automobile culture, consumer junk, transcontinental food, unnecessary pharmaceuticals, and every other form of waste that contributes nothing to human happiness? In one way or another, all of these things are the end products of a civilization built on separation.

The ground has already begun to shift, and that shift will accelerate as the "old normal" falls apart. It has fallen apart in many ways already, yet its afterimage lingers. The supermarkets are still full of food, the malls full of shoppers, the highways full of cars, and the ATM's full of cash. The last-ditch strategy of the financial elite, "extend and pretend", applies to our entire society. It is still possible to pretend that the world of our parents will be the world of our children, and to extend its lifestyle a few more years. But that pretense is wearing thin.

A world of justice and abundance depends on a different kind of consciousness. The shift of consciousness is from separation to oneness; from being to "interbeing"; from a discrete and separate self in an external objective universe, to an integral part that contains the whole. The new self seeks less to dominate than to co-create, less to control than to share. It knows that the whole universe is as alive and as conscious as oneself... The universe wants to freely provide what we need, rather than requiring us to wrest it from an indifferent or hostile environment.

The world isn't supposed to be this way... A more beautiful world is possible, right in front of our faces, waiting only for us to accept it.

coping with transition

If you are awake to the rising energy of the new paradigm, then you are now undergoing many transformations, as you transition from the old paradigm to the new.

Your body is changing: you may experience aches and pains, especially in the neck, shoulder and back, as your divinity awakens within. You may experience deep inner sadness for no apparent reason - these feelings come from releasing your memories, energy and experiences of the past. You are leaving the old behind. You may burst into tears for no apparent reason - let the tears flow, as this helps to release the old energy from within.

At times you will feel very ungrounded, and physically disoriented, as your body lags behind your consciousness in moving into the new energy. You may feel as if you cannot put your two feet on the ground, or as if you are walking between two worlds.

Your left and right brain are coming into balance. Your tastes - your likes and dislikes - are changing. Earthly desires pull you in one direction, while your mind pulls you in another direction, and now your soul is pulling you in a third direction! So you feel torn apart, directionless, and confused. Instead of wanting more, or feeling that you lack something, you are learning to find abundance from within.

You may remember intense dreams, perhaps of conflict or of being chased or persecuted: these are a release, within our unconscious mind, of the old energy. There is a lot of unconscious work going on, and this may cause you to waken up for a break in the middle of the night. If you can't go back to sleep, get up and do something, rather than lay in bed and worry about earthly things.

You will talk to yourself more often. You will realise suddenly that you have been chattering away with yourself, as a new level of communication takes place within your being. The conversations will increase, becoming more fluid, more coherent, and more insightful. You are not going crazy - we are just moving into the new energy.

As you change, things around you will change as well. You may experience sudden changes in job or career - you should not worry about finding the "perfect" work right now, as you are in transition, and you may make several changes before you settle into work that fits your passion. Do not worry about a loss of passion - you may experience little or no desire to do anything, and that is fine: take this time to do nothing, and do not feel any guilt about doing so.

You may drift away from your family and friends. You were deeply connected to them via old karmic bonds, but now you are clearing your karmic debts, and stepping free from the karmic wheel, and so the bonds of the old relationships are severed. In time, you will re-develop these relationships where appropriate, but the new relationships will be based in the new paradigm energy, without the old karmic attachments.

You are now walking a sacred and lonely path. You may feel alone and detached from others, even when you are in their company. It is difficult to relate to others at this time: you may wish to flee from groups and crowds.

You may feel this is too much for you, and that you are not ready to take on the challenges of moving into the new energy, but these feelings will pass. Your journey may seem dark and lonely at times, but as you re-tune to your inner self, you will find overwhelming love and light within. In reality we are never truly alone.

Let go of the dying old fear-based paradigm, and turn your face towards the love-light of the new paradigm. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

The world is governed by a secret power that holds us in bondage to no good end. But the conspirators are not others, they are we, you and I and everyone. A secret agenda of domination and control has existed in nearly everyone, and a world embodying that agenda has congealed around us, attracted to the dark, reptilian energies we have harbored. The good news is that these energies have nearly run their course, as the world of control breaks down and the campaign to conquer and dominate all other being founders on its own consequences. Just as Voldemort was unable to possess Harry Potter because he couldn't abide the love within him, so also is the ruling power of the world unable to abide our growing realization of our connectedness. Love, the felt experience of oneness, is spreading as the walls of separation come down. They never were sustainable. Today, even the most deluded - the power elite - are beginning to recognize that. The reign of the Illuminati is nearly over. That it seems to be reaching unprecedented heights only bespeaks the imminence of its demise, the extreme of yang giving birth to yin.

... The Illuminati, the Reptilians, are you and I... Can you not feel the obsolescence of that part of you, the part that endlessly seeks to control the world, to dominate others, to maximize egoic self-interest? Is it not increasingly evident that its efforts have created only misery? Is it not apparent that, no matter how hard you try to remedy its failure by intensifying its efforts, its ultimate failure is assured? For all of us, the time is coming for that part of ourselves to bow out, so that we can step into service, into trust, and, collectively, into the more beautiful world our hearts know is possible.

a new mind for a new world

The instability of our current time is part of a larger cycle of human evolution that will soon turn toward renewal and regeneration. For centuries, indigenous wisdom traditions have talked of an epochal shift on the horizon, of a spiritual renaissance for the earth and her living family. Now the timelines are converging and the potential for an energetic “upgrade” for humanity is here, but first we must survive and evolve through the current period of transition.

Evolution is not a gradual process but more like a “shock to the system”: radical waves of transformation after a period of dormancy. We are currently undergoing an evolutionary leap.... the instability we are now experiencing - climate change, economic meltdowns, and increasing political polarisation - is the convergence of complex systems that have reached a critical state.

What we need in order to push through to the coming spiritual renaissance is a paradigm shift in human thinking and perception, a conscious evolution in recognition of the interconnectedness of all things: a new mind for a new world.

open your heart

If you were asked to weigh your heart today, would it be filled with love, light, peace and unity, creating an upliftment and weighing less then a feather? Or would your heart hold chains, bondage, or be hidden behind walls, weighing it down?

When we allow our experiences to taint or harden our hearts - we weigh our hearts down.

It is only through opening our hearts, releasing our burdens, forgiving ourselves and others do we return to the innocence and joys of the inner child.

It is the lightness of a child, the awe and amazement of life and all its' beauty that shall carry the heart forward, lightening it, and carrying it higher into limitless potential.

Through an open heart, magic and miracles can be found carried on the waves of love, truth and beauty.

Many prophecies state it shall be the child that shall teach and guide us into the golden age. We have forgotten that each of us house a child within our heart … a child wishing to show you the way

Open your heart, embrace your inner child and allow your heart to weigh less then that of a feather.
