Only by living my life in GRATEFULNESS have I realized how blessed I am and only then can I truly accept the gift of knowing that I am not only deeply loved but I am part of something far greater than myself.
Love is the transmutation agent by which we eventually break free from the suffocating cocoon of ego consciousness and emerge into the freedom and delight of soul consciousness ~ and relationship is the vehicle we ride to that self-fulfilling destination
It has long been my opinion that the phenomenon associated with the near and after death experience indicates that a state of unconditional love and soul consciousness lies not only beyond apparent death ~ but also beneath our deepest fears.
So once again, watch the final scene of The Sopranos and admire the end of a finely crafted David Chase masterpiece as well as a brilliant actor prophetically suddenly fade to black at the peak of his career.
A Unified Field of love and soul consciousness lies not only deepest within ourselves but also beyond time and space. It is also the strong force within the basic atom as revealed in Asymptotic freedom. The basic property of this Unified Field is the universal urge to unite and we resist it at the risk of extinction.
Time after time in my heart centered counseling, with both veterans and civilians, I find that once they realize that they have loved people deeply in the past and recognize that these people were and are still gifts in their quest to find themselves ~ the magic of self-healing begins, aided by dreams and all sorts of unforeseen events which happen to accelerate that process.
What is illuminating to me now is that even at that young age of three ~ I felt an innate need to share my individual joy and delight with the world at large ~ which is precisely what I am still doing as I embark on my 79th year on the planet .
Stanley Krippner’s demonstrated gift and lifelong lesson for me is the incredible inner validation and satisfaction of being in service from a place of celebration as well as not taking oneself too seriously.
I’ll never forget one early dawn launch on the South China Sea. I was sitting on the number one catapult waiting for the carrier to turn into the wind, my aircraft canopy was open and I began to cry tears of joy.
Death is a tall dark stranger ~ who always arrives when you least expect it. Its cold forbidding presence rides on the chariot of the unknown. However, beneath its ominous gray shroud beats an all encompassing heart for death is but a passage within a loving plan in action.Thus those who we love deeply not only live in our hearts but become part of us forever ~ as my late granddaughter Kaitlyn most certainly lives in my heart.
With the world economies mired in depression and debt and the American military machine cranking up for Syria and Iran ~ I look to nature as well as deep space for reminders that we are innately part of something far greater than ourselves or as William Blake wrote “We are put on earth a little space to bear the beams of love.”
So, obviously my most precious memory of my mother was when she came to me after she died ~ for it was only then that the shackles of her victimhood had finally been released ~ it was only then that I could truly experience her profound love for me ~ as well as her joyous need to share with me her new awareness of this state of love, joy and soul consciousness deepest within herself.
I did not graduate with honors ~ far from it, for I barely accumulated enough units to be standing on the stage where you will soon be receiving your diploma. But I did graduate with the acute awareness that I was prepared to live my dreams, whatever they were, and fear and self doubt would not stop me.
Today, Jesus would be considered not only a rebel, if not a terrorist, and most definitely a threat to the establishment and the status quo and the humanizing of Jesus is an essential step in the journey towards taking responsibility for that same love deepest within us all..
As our civil liberties slowly erode with a corporate state under control of the Military/Industrial complex and global elite ~ there will come a time when we all must take a stand for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause or some great truth.
Gratitude is the only antidote for unworthiness for gratitude helps remove the stifling blanket of self-negating unworthiness ~ and gratitude allows a closed heart to open, to love and be loved, and to dance in inner joy and delight.
This is, without a doubt, the most powerful and rewarding work I have done in over 35 years of practice. Seeing the light go on within combat veterans, who were taught to kill, is an unforgettable experience.
Mark this moment ~ a true shift in global consciousness is upon us for the Occupy Wall Street Movement is touching deeply felt evolutionary chords which will eventually break down the global walls of greed, separateness and war and will eventually replace them with altruism, social cooperation and peace ~ the true driving forces of evolution.
What if infinite love and not the speed of light was the absolute constant of the Universe? My own personal experience and work as a psychotherapist, particularly in my work with veterans with PTSD, has demonstrated this great truth a truth that all human beings sense and respond to at their deepest level of consciousness.
The eagle has landed ~ but it should also now be obvious that man’s quest to touch the face of god must eventually turn inward. The ultimate frontier is not space but understanding the journey of the heart and the true intent of love
Let’s get something straight. Jesus was not sent from anywhere for Jesus was divinely human ~ no different than you or myself at birth ~ and the humanizing of Jesus is an essential step in the journey towards taking responsibility for that same love deepest within each one of us.
