  1. In this vast universe, we are not just neighbors if we live on earth. We are roommates. We share the same ‘house’. And yet, relative to the majority of beings (including people) who live here with us, we live as strangers. I have lived in neighborhoods where if I passed someone who lived right next door, I wouldn’t know it… Neighborhoods where no one says hello. The loneliness is growing in the human race. Its cold, sharp edges numbed by the addiction to our technological devices. All species are suffering from our ability to disconnect and separate from that which we see as ‘other’. They say that if you put a frog in cold water and heat the water up slowly, the frog will not jump out. He will acclimatize until he boils to death. This I fear, will be the story of people and separation. The human race is becoming more and more aloof by the day. And I watch the chill of this aloofness making people more afraid of one another. The Covid-19 outbreak is just the "cherry on the cake". This makes my heart ache because people need the warmth of each other. What those of us who see the pain of this ‘boiling water of separation’ can do is to become that warmth… To be the one to speak first. To be the one to smile. To be the one to act in a manner that relieves the tension of other people’s fear. To act in the best interests of nature itself. Today the world is boiling in the water of fear. The Covid-19 outbreak has become the tipping point for the human psyche with regards to this fear. The fear that people and governments feel makes openly speaking about the outbreak in and of itself a very risky proposition. I will simply say this: Back when people began speaking about the fact that the 2008 financial crash was caused by big hedge fund companies, insurance companies and banks creating mortgage backed securities and giving subprime loans for their own personal profit, people considered it a conspiracy theory… until it became obvious that it was reality. There is nothing insane, paranoid or kooky about the understanding that money is the root of most every decision made in the world today. It certainly isn’t the care for our fellow men. That is a gaslight. And you must understand that the reality of economy is that when changes happen in the market and many people become financially ruined and even die, others become very, very rich. But because we have been socialized to comprehend that self-centered motives (such as wealth or campaign strategy or irresistible headlines or personal safety) is immoral, no one will ever admit it. Instead, they will cover it over with a veneer of morality. If the safety of people is the concern at hand, we get to look directly at the reality that according to statistics, as of today about 337 people die in fires every day. Around 1,418 die of the flu every day. About 3,792 people die from car accidents every day. About 7,671 people die of obesity every day and some 21,000 people die from hunger every day. There is almost no global reaction to any of these threats. There are two main reasons why there is no reaction. 1. People see minimal to no profit in solving them. 2. Uncertainty is the food of panic. We have the tendency to not panic in the presence of a very real risk if it is familiar and known, but panic anytime we encounter something unknown and unfamiliar (even if it ends up posing a minimal risk). Covid-19 is an invisible threat that we feel is novel and foreign and that we feel we have no control over catching or not catching and so it suddenly feels like a survival risk to all of us. Not just to “those people”. When people are afraid, people become narcissistic. It is not that people are ‘bad’ for doing this. It is simply that the focus naturally shifts to self-preservation. It is a knee jerk reaction... One that is biologically wired into us. The irony is that this knee jerk reaction so often makes us even more unsafe. Especially in a modern world, where the threat is so much more complex and multifaceted than simply immediately reacting to escape a physical threat. Fear can make us completely blind and also controllable. So many of you have been asking and even pressuring me to comment on the Covid-19 crisis. What you want is an answer. Many of you want me to tell you what to think and what to do. That is the normal reaction to have when you are in fear. All I wish to reflect to you about that before I continue is how easily fear can open the door for people to control you in whatever direction suits their own best interests if fear puts you in a state to want to be told what to do. The real problem with Covid-19 will prove to be the reaction to it. In this case, the governments have different motives and reasons for panicking than the citizens do, because they have different information. The reaction to it has the potential to kill more people and ruin more lives than the “organic virus” ever would. The many conflicts that will arise as a result of the reaction to it are the biggest threat of all in this situation. It is the beginning of what I was writing about when I released my 2020 forecast earlier this year. Most people will not be facing how to respond to a virus, but instead how to respond to government action and the reaction that companies and citizens have relative to those government actions. The world right now is set up like a house of cards, more interdependent than most people have awareness of. The domino effect is already proving to be colossal and will continue to prove to be so. But never forget that each and every one of you has the power relative to how you respond to the situation. Are we going to respond by making the world a safer place on a physical, mental and emotional level? Or will we make it more unsafe in the delusion that we are taking steps to ensure safety? In the name of safety, people have the capacity to destroy life as they know it. This is what creates vicious spirals. For example, imagine that people began to fear that the financial markets would crash. And so everyone tried to withdraw their money from the markets overnight. They would create the very thing they are afraid of. People who foresaw this would be in a very difficult position themselves. Because if they are the only one to not do the same thing, they are left with nothing. So it would seem their hand would be forced by the rest of humanity to participate in the very thing that creates the downfall of human society… To act in their own best interests. The definition of a safe relationship is a relationship in which we take someone else’s best interests as a part of our own best interests. When we are in fear and thus in self-preservation mode, this is precisely what we are not doing. And so, by definition we, ourselves become unsafe to others. This causes other people to go into self-preservation mode relative to us. As you can tell, this inevitably becomes a self-perpetuating spiral of warring methods of self-protection. It takes some deep, deep looking to see the vulnerability, the fear and pain underneath those warring strategies. If we did look, we would quickly see that the best strategy for actually being safe is not to focus on preserving ourselves, the best strategy is to focus on alleviating their fear and pain. It is a drastically different focus. It is a step towards taking others as a part of ourselves, which is a far more objective response than strategy. You will hear a lot in the coming year about how bad fear is. Fear will never go away. You will never live a life without fear. There is no such thing as fearlessness. We may try to hide our fear from each other but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there. Fear is neither good or bad. It is information. Information about a potential or a reality that is deeply unwanted. Everything depends how that information is used. And most people do not know what to do with that information, which is something that the media must understand unless they want more blood on their hands than they already have on their hands as of today. Reacting to fear causes us to do stupid things. Ignoring fear also causes us to do stupid things. And so your task for this year is to master fear. To figure out how to make objective decisions that involve risk. If all you can do is to practice this mastery, that is enough. Fear is inherently about separation. By its very nature, it is an instinctual reaction to push something or someone away from you. And fear is the number one most isolating experience on the planet. The more fearful we are, the more alone we are. To help visualize this, imagine that you are standing in the middle of a circle with a bunch of people. Now see yourself feeling fear toward these people in the circle and pushing them away. When you do this, eventually, everyone else ends up outside the circle and you are the only one inside the circle … alone. Now imagine that same scenario but this time, your fear toward everyone causes you to want to avoid them and thus, run away from them. If you do this, everyone else is still inside the circle and you are now outside the circle … alone. This is how fear creates loneliness and prevents connection. This is a big problem when we fear each other, because the number one human need is connection. And this outbreak has caused us to fear each other. I am the first person to say "never mess with a single cell organism". But there is a big difference between 1. Deciding to take precautions relative to transmission and 2. Fearing everyone, pushing everyone away and separating and isolating them out of that fear. The trauma and ripple effects, aftermath and implications of forcing separation on people will extend far beyond the potential damage of the threat that people SAY they are trying to prevent. We must be very careful as well because the threat of separation from loved ones is perhaps the biggest form of leverage that someone can use on someone else in order to force their compliance. To love is the opposite of to fear. We make very different decisions out of love than out of fear. To love means to make the decision to take something as a part of yourself. This means, nothing is more important than to re-own your own fear and to take responsibility of it as if it were a crying child. When a child cries for help because he or she is afraid of something, the correct response is not to immediately get rid of that thing. For example, there are children that cry hysterically in fear that their own shadow is following them around when they walk. You cannot get rid of the child’s shadow. What you can do in that scenario is to help them to see the reality and to change their perspective. It is only by really owning and taking responsibility for your own fear that you can make an objective decision in whatever situation you find yourself. Because fear tells you very clearly what you don’t want, it means the door is wide open to figure out what you DO want and need. If you could take your attention off of pushing against the unwanted and put it squarely on putting your energy into what you do want in any situation, life would feel much, much better. What is the Covid-19 situation telling you that you want and need? Is there a way you could put your focus and energy and action into those things in a much more direct way? Every time a decision is made my someone outside of you, consider it a chess move. And your job is to figure out what you want and need given the new situation and pour your energy into that. I’ll give you an example, when President Trump declared a national emergency yesterday, we made the decision to cancel both of our events this month. I want and need to teach and to see a world full of awakened people. I want to live out my purpose. But a bigger want and need for me is togetherness. When the government created a risk of separation through quarantine or closed borders, we found that we were unwilling to take the risk of people being forcibly separated from their families and loved ones. It does get significantly harder when you find yourself in a lose-lose scenario in which there is fear on both sides of a decision. But prioritizing according to your most honest and important wants and needs still works in a lose-lose scenario. If any of you are interested in understanding what to do about fear in a much more in-depth way, I have an entire chapter dedicated to it in my book titled: The Anatomy of Loneliness. One of the many gifts of near-death experience is that you get to measure being alive next to so many things. I am going to say something now that I want you to never forget. Fear has a way of convincing a person that the most important thing in existence is survival. It isn’t. It is quality of life. Quality of life is what humanity must stand for. I have been teaching relentlessly for a while now about the importance of taking that which you see as ‘other’ as a part of yourself. At the most objective level of perspective, the Covid-19 outbreak is a manifestation of the failure to do this. The failure of humans to take nature as a part of themselves and thus to commit environmental abuse. The failure of the individuals running major corporations and governments to take citizens as a part of themselves and thus profit off of their suffering. The failure to take the most basic human emotional needs that we have as a part of ourselves, and thus make decisions that will damage our capacity to thrive. The most important thing you can do as an individual, which will change the way you respond to anything you fear, is to take that which you see as ‘other’ as a part of yourself and by doing so, to take their best interests as a part of your own best interests. To do so is to fix the root of the entire weed of suffering that has grown rampant within the human race. And I believe that each of you, whether you decide to do it or not, are capable of doing so. You are capable of popping the bubble or narcissism that fear has the tendency to cause you to build. You are capable of lovingly caretaking your fear. You have the power relative to how you respond to any situation. You have the power of transcending herd mentality and not doing what everyone else is doing. You have the power to ask yourself what your fear is telling you that you deeply want and need and focusing your energy and actions on those things directly. You have the power to take the best interests of others as a part of your own, without sacrificing your own best interests. Because YOU are capable of the practice of love.

  5. It is written in an old Hindu Scripture “He who sees all beings in his own self, and his own self in all beings, loses fear.” It is my personal request that you hold to this concept like a pillar and model your mentality around it in the upcoming year. To be honest with you, this particular yearly New Years Forecast is one that I have been troubled about writing for the last several years. I find myself walking a delicate line between causing you to feel fear about 2020 and instead making you aware of the reality of 2020 in a way where you can embrace your fear and see 2020 objectively enough to feel some sense of welcome for it spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically. Fear is a central theme that all people on earth will grapple with in 2020. As you already know, a major evolutionary shift in humanity has been well underway for many years. But shifts and transformations are not an overnight thing and they are not the “warm, expansive, fuzzy-feeling” things that many people imagine when they hear the word shift or transformation. A shift is change. Change is something that usually implies resistance. In 2020, this resistance rises to a head or a peak. Instead of write about the antidote to fear as a part of this already lengthy forecast, I will tell you that an entire section of the book I wrote in anticipation of this year titled ‘The Anatomy of Loneliness’ is about fear specifically. Many of you have begun to lose faith in humanity in the recent years as the intensity of this shift has built to the point where it feels like the people and the world around you has lost its mind. This happens when humanity reaches a crossroads where it must totally change. A threshold has been crossed. 2020 is a turning point. This change is being forced by first exposing all the ‘shadowy aspects’ that have been operating behind the scenes all along. And it has and will continue to shock you to see them in plain view. The ‘old’ (what is not working) must and will fall away and be replaced by the new. 2020 is a precipice year. It is a crossroads between the way it has been and the way it will be, not just on a personal level, but also on a global level. And a crossroads divides us. It puts us in a state of opposition. It divides us internally on a personal level and it divides us with others. There are parts of us that want to go left and parts of us that want to go right. There are those of us who fight for the way things are and have been and those of us who fight for a new way of existing. This year will be a year of battle. A battle of the sexes, a battle of the races, a battle of creeds, a battle of politics, a battle of self vs. other and a year of protest regarding change. The frequency pattern in the world in 2020 is similar to the pattern in the year 532 and in 629 and (making a huge jump so you can maybe relate to it better) the year 1834 and 1898 and 1914 and 1966 and 2001. To understand the kinds of things this frequency gives rise to, you can review what happened during those years. It is a frequency that causes societal system shakeups and dredges societal issues to the surface. It is a frequency that creates major world events that tend to make history. People tend to look back on these years with a sense that they marked ‘an end of an era’. It is a potent, wild and volatile frequency full of both gravity and tension. Consider it a crisis in collective consciousness. It’s not that this frequency that is present in 2020 specifically causes negative things to happen. It is that it causes things to happen that create a new chapter for humanity. This pattern causes the re-establishing of what defines a thing and how that thing operates. This includes cultures and societies. It is a re-defining of or re-structuring of our lives and society and world. The year 2020 will be a year of intense progression for technology, sciences, world trade, travel, air and space advancement as well as the move away from fossil fuels and patriarchy. During times like this, opposing systems and beliefs clash. It creates both national and international crisis and conflicts that often have lasting traumatic consequences as well as lasting positive changes that re-define human life… Which is why this pattern leads to events that get into the history books. 2020 is a catapult for a revolutionary decade. Therefore, it is a year to remember that we are all in this together. The dominant theme of the year 2020 is: REDEFINE. Across the board, it will be a year where the intensity of conflict is turned up to the boiling point so that individuals and societies must decide who they are and what they stand for and what role they want to play across history, the now and the future. This will cause a major re-distribution of power. It will cause people and companies and cultures and societies and everything in between to re-define themselves. The scene that comes to mind to represent the energy of 2020 is the freedom scene in brave heart, where he is facing the army with his face is painted blue, and he is speaking to them about why they are about to fight a war they will most likely lose… for the sake of what they stand for and what defines them. The collective consciousness of the universe itself (and humanity as a fragment of the greater universe) is in the middle of creating integration between self and other, individual and collective. These concepts have been at odds. But this conflict is slated to end. This means you will be facing the task of defining yourself while integrating what is “other”. This is the phase within humanity to learn how to have yourself and have others too at the very same time. This year, you will be re-defining yourself. Defining oneself is a process of individuation. It is a phase in which you answer the questions: Who am I? What do I stand for? What is MY truth? Do other people define me? How do I keep myself when I’m in relationship with another person or within a group? You will establish a sense of loyalty to yourself and as such, make no more compromises. This is an area where your fear will arise. A central element of the fear in 2020 will be the fear about relationship. Fear is the pushing away of that which you do not want to include as a part of yourself. Fear is at its core, the opposite of love. So fear causes you to individuate, but unconsciously and out of pure resistance. The good and the bad news is that this largely unconscious individuation process will inevitably lead to the integrating factor between self and other… the awareness that one will inevitably arise at, where their personal truth and what they personally value and what they personally stand for is unity. This is where ironically the battle becomes the battle to end battle. This is where relationship becomes a conscious choice… Love becomes a conscious choice. This awareness will happen to some people in much harsher ways than others, depending on their level of resistance to integration. The truth that has already been accepted at an objective level within the universe (and that humanity must catch up to) is that we can’t keep opposing each other. We must end the zero sum game. To understand more about this, watch my video titled: The Zero Sum Game (What is A Zero Sum Game and How To End One). In fact, our survival as a species now depends on it. The decision has been made to heal the division. Sadly, much more division will occur for all people to arrive at a mental and emotional place of consciously choosing no more division. The suicide crisis will rise. The opioid crisis will rise. Loneliness has not yet reached its peak because many people do not recognize it as the crisis of the human race. It is like I often say; many people need to whack a tree at 70 miles an hour in order to awaken. The awareness and decision of integration within the greater universe is a tsunami. We must get on board with and ride the tsunami. If in response to your fear, you try to oppose that tsunami of change by getting controlling and rigid and sticking to what you know and being set in your ways and holding to what was and is familiar, you will get hit by it. And incase you don’t already know, a tsunami travels at the speed of a jet aircraft. You will not succeed at outrunning or fighting against it. The question to ask yourself is: What role do you want to play in the new structure? This re-defining can feel like the owning of a new form or a new life and as such, labor pains will accompany the transition. There is nothing “easy” about the frequency of 2020. Society will be directly confronted with what needs to change about society. You will be directly confronted with what needs to change about you. This opposition can lead to a sense of thwarted motivation and feeling fed up. Feeling fed up will cause many people to dive even deeper into spiritual practice. But many will do so with the attitude of “escape”. It is critical that spiritual practice is not used as an escape hatch from life itself. Instead it should be used as a means of getting more clear and gaining more resources specifically in order to focus much more powerfully, effectively and fully into your temporal, physical life. In 2020, in order to re-define yourself, you must de-condition yourself from patterns that no longer serve you or the world you live in. You redefine yourself so as to give your life new meaning. You re-evaluate your values and priorities and from there, take action to build your life around those core values. This means you must heal from your past and the no longer beneficial ways that your past made you adapt. You must re-define reality. Everything that causes you to feel oriented and stable in the truth of reality may very well be thrown out the window. Therefore, the way to approach 2020 is with curiosity and flexibility. You must be willing to let go of what you think you know. You must be willing to let go of the old and consider completely new perspectives and ways of doing things. This is a really good year to practice the art of ‘going back to the drawing board”. It is a year for re-defining what you need to cultivate in your life and what you need to let go of. It is a year to re-align with your deepest desires, need and values. By re-assessing and re-aligning with your deepest desires, need and values, what will happen is you will find your own inner authority. You will be stepping into the energy of holding a relationship with the things you commit to having a relationship with, but with a sense of agency. In perfect harmony with this expansion, a dominant theme for 2020 is truth vs. lies. This will be a theme on the individual level and at the societal level. Becoming aware of what is true and what is false forces us to re-adjust. Again, this forces flexibility. For all these above reasons, AIR is the element to master in 2020. The various power dynamics in your own life will be forced to the forefront of your awareness so you can examine and shift them. By shifting them you will be able to cultivate new and actual strength. As we re-define ourselves, we will find ourselves becoming aware of a “responsibility crisis” being experienced in the world (by ourselves, other people, governments and whole societies for example). Part of re-defining ourselves is to clearly define what is and what isn’t our responsibility. Taking genuine responsibility in our lives and acting accordingly is a necessity. As for the earth itself, it is also entering the process of re-defining itself. You can use the powers of your own mind to imagine what it means for the earth to re-define itself. The frequency of 2020 will lend itself to some earthquakes and even more than that, to floods. If you are in an area that is prone to (or at risk of) flooding, make sure you have insurance for floods, as that is showing up as the most dominant natural disaster in the coming year. Consider having a plan for both as a part of your commitment to taking genuine responsibility. Consistent with the theme of fear, inflammation is a malady facing all people’s general physical wellbeing in 2020. Anything you can do (on top of facing and integrating your fear) in order to decrease inflammation is going to benefit you in 2020. It is a year to take anti-inflammatory actions. For example, support your body with an anti inflammatory diet, exercise, get enough sleep, hydrate and de-stress in whatever ways work best for you. 2020 is also a major year of collective karmic return. Cause and effect becomes much more obvious. Those who have sewn flowers will see the positive return of having done so and those who have sewn weeds will see the negative return of having done so. In 2020, the reality that what goes around, comes around is like a truth that the universe itself is intent to make all aspects of itself aware of. And humanity is an aspect of itself. Have you ever heard the saying "hind sight is 2020"? It's rather ironic because 2020 is also the year of hindsight. This year, you will begin to really see reality clearly, with 20-20 vision so to speak. This is a two sided coin. On the one hand, hindsight being 20-20, implies that you have clarity and understanding that you did not previously have... You are now aware of what you were not previously aware of, and this is going to help you to make much better current and future choices . On the other hand it can be very painful to see how your previous lack of awareness led you to making mistakes, some of which had drastic consequences. It can be even more painful to see how these consequences could have been avoided and prevented... if only you had known then what you know now. Seeing as how this pattern causes the re-establishing of what defines a thing and how that thing operates, in 2020 you need to consciously invest your resources as if each investment was a vote for the future you want. Sticking with the concept of karmic return, consider everything you do as the planting of a seed. Each seed is a vote for either a weed or a flower. 2020 is a time to look beyond 2020 at the big picture of your life and the big picture of human society on earth and to keep the vision you hold for both like a compass that keeps pointing north even in a storm. It is a time to commit to long-term vision. Ask yourself, am I willing or even ready to re-define myself? If not, you need to lovingly resolve that resistance. Ask yourself, what am I afraid will happen if I re-define myself? What do I need to let go of on a mental, emotional and physical level so I can commit my resources on all levels to what really matters? Having heard all of this information, how are you reacting to it? Did you only notice the negative? Is the old pattern you are stuck in a perception of powerlessness? Incase you didn’t pick up on it, 2020 is a wide-open opportunity for the new. Most people get stuck in a box that defines them. Most people live and die in that box. They don’t re-define themselves. You have defined yourself a certain way. 2020 is the peak year of the phase where the universe will break apart that unconscious box for you if you choose not to do it yourself. 2020 is the crossroads of personal choice. You are not a victim to a crossroads. You can choose to go left or right. You can even choose to not choose. You can re-define yourself at any moment. And other people’s definitions of you do not have to create your definition of yourself. In order to ride the tsunami of 2020, choose to get on the wave of re-defining yourself and be proactive about it. And if all this does is terrify you, you aren’t seeing the flip side of the coin. You aren’t seeing the beauty of this energy. You can see the beauty in that man who decides that despite years spent in one career, he is going to switch his time and focus on what really fills him with passion. You can see it in that woman who has always been a doormat, but who decides to walk away. You can see it in those people who have always been fiercely independent and afraid of intimacy, deciding to really commit to an interdependent relationship. You can see it in America deciding to abolish slavery. You can see it in women getting the vote. You can see it in that medical innovation that changes our entire approach to illness. You can see it in the reshaping of politics. It is never too late to re-define yourself. You are never too old to re-define yourself. And if it is never too late to re-define yourself, it is never too late for the world.
