“There comes a time when the bubble of ego is popped and you can’t get the ground back for an extended period of time. Those times, when you absolutely cannot get it back together, are the most rich and powerful times in our lives.”

2011: Year of Illumination

“We are not promised life. Life is a gift for us to experience. And we have created a society that puts so much focus on toil and struggle and suffering. Addressing those three areas in our selves is the key not only to personal transformation, but more importantly, world transformation…

The way of the human is to create. We create life and we create love, and when we create life and love, we are in our highest element. When we create suffering, destruction, we are exploring lower territories, more painful territories. We are now being pushed, forced, cajoled into releasing those darker energies…

All is well. This will be an incredible year in so many different ways. But, for those of you who harness the life that you have, harness the power that you have within you to live life in the way you want to, but also in a way you feel benefits others, from an authentic place inside, then you will have the free-est experience possible this year.

Take your time, there is no rush. Life will be speeding past you. You can always slow yourself down, stand still… This will be the fastest year we have ever known. Do not get seduced or caught up in the speed.”

Times of Disaster are Very Revealing

“You go on dreaming, imagining beautiful things for the coming days, the future. But in moments when danger is imminent, then suddenly you become aware that there may be no future, no tomorrow, that this is the only moment you have got. So times of disaster are very revealing. They don’t bring anything new in the world; they simply make you aware of the world as it is. They wake you up. If you don’t understand this, you can go mad; if you understand this, you can become awakened.” ~Osho

The Power of Now – Excerpts

“It seems that most people need to experience a great deal of suffering before they will relinquish resistance and accept – before they will forgive. As soon as they do, one of the greatest miracles happens: the awakening of Being-consciousness through what appears as evil, the transmutation of suffering into inner peace…

Through forgiveness, which essentially means recognizing the insubstantiality of the past and allowing the present moment to be as it is, the miracle of transformation happens not only within but also without. A silent space of intense presence arises both in you and around you. Whoever or whatever enters that field of consciousness will be affected by it, sometimes visibly and immediately, sometimes at deeper levels with visible changes appearing at a later time. You dissolve discord, heal pain, dispel unconsciousness – without doing anything – simply by being and holding that frequency of intense presence.” ~Eckhart Tolle

Virtual Reality Shifts are a Doorway into Fifth-Dimensional Timelines

“It is possible at any time to visualize and begin aligning with the version of your reality that allows you to exist along fifth-dimensional timelines. As you gradually shift to higher-vibrational realities, struggle falls away from you; your response to the realities you encounter becomes one of acceptance and gratitude because you are able to see the blessings and higher order contained within every situation.

From this perspective, there is never a reason to allow yourself to be pulled into negative energies because love-filled alternatives exist adjacent to every moment and can be accessed in the blink of an eye. Each time we choose love over lower alternatives, we activate new timelines and potentials that hold the power to carry us seamlessly into fifth-dimensional life tracks.”

Inner Resistance

“Inner resistance to whatever arises in the present moment pulls you back into unconsciousness. Inner resistance is some form of negativity, complaining, fear, aggression, or anger. This is important because whenever you complain about what somebody else does you’re already beginning to fall into that trap of unconsciousness.” ~Eckhart Tolle

Timeline Shifts: Mastering the Art of Choosing Realities

“Most everyone has unconscious lapses. These lapses account for times when one experiences undesired realities. Accidents, illnesses, missed opportunities, unfortunate decisions and episodes of “bad luck” sometimes occur during unconscious lapses. These lapses also make it impossible to act in ways that bring you the highest and best experiences and realities. When you are asleep at the wheel, it is impossible to make conscious decisions and shift to new realities.

Life and how it unfolds is no mystery. The awakened consciousness is able to choose its own realities while the sleeping consciousness moves through a life dictated by old scripts. This is a condition that leads to feelings of victimhood. But these feelings of victimhood are not “bad” because they can help us by prodding us to wake up. If life were working smoothly, perfectly, there would be nothing to jolt us awake when we drift off to sleep. The bumps in the road help jolt us awake and keep us awake.”
