  1. At 3:00 am, the stars still hover against the black. An occasional car navigates the topography of the landscape far off. Most beings have retired their conscious minds. They are absorbed in the exploration of their subconscious minds. It is a process that most of them will not be aware of when they wake. They will simply start off where they left off. I find it both endearing and defeating to think that most people will remain unconscious of their subconscious minds. Being in a house full of people who are dreaming is very much like being in the center of people experiencing the latter part of a mild group Ayahuasca ceremony... One that they will soon forget. They have all been sucked into a journey within. And I am sitting squarely in the world during the witching hour. I am sitting in the consensus reality that like a vesica pisces exists between our individual perspectives. Because I spend most of my nights consciously out of body working as a kind of universal tool for consciousness, nights like this that are so common to people walking the path of awakening are rare for me. It is rare that I am awoken at this time of night with so much energy that it is a if I have been shot with a universal EpiPen. It is a kin to being woken in the night with pleasant labor pains. When this happens, the universe wants something created through you and loves to use the special energies belonging to this time of the morning. It is a time when the veil between physical and non physical realities is particularly thin. This time I have been awoken on this, the last day of the year 2017. And I have been awoken in order to communicate with people about the near future. It has been a habit of mine to write a kind of forecast about each upcoming year. But this time, there seems to be a universal investment in me doing so and doing so now. For some of you, if you stop right here and now, you will notice that your pulse has increased and your body has gone tense even looking at a forecasting message about the upcoming year. That reaction is a direct reflection of the intensity that you have experienced in the last years. For many of you, because 2017 was the year of drastic change, that intensity was traumatizing. You may feel a bit like you do when you are caught in waves that crash down on you and barely let you catch a breath before the next one comes. You get to a point where you wonder how long you can withstand it. I see that many of you are at that point in your lives. And it is with this in mind that I can tell you to take a deep and long breath of relief. Change is catching up with us this year again. But this breed of change is different than the breed of change that has been gracing us in the past year(s). All change we make may seem like a deviation. But from the perspective of universal consciousness, it can be said that all change we make is rather a coming into further alignment with our destiny. There is no actual contradiction between free will and destiny when you accept source or as many people say ‘your higher self’ as yourself. Both your temporal perspective and non-physical perspective is you. Therefore, if there seems to be a discrepancy between them, it is really just you disagreeing with you. All change is a coming into alignment with your life purpose and soul mission. When we are attached or lost in illusion, that change will take on a form that feels destructive. It is as if consciousness itself creates a forest fire on the metaphysical level that burns through illusion and consumes anything we cling to that keeps us apart from our awakening, our authenticity and our unique purpose. When we are sitting in those ashes, after the blaze has subsided, we feel raw and often fragile. And then, a second form of change arises. This form of change is a building phase. And it is this phase of change that is brought with the year 2018. When we begin the process of building, we lay a foundation. We do this because it creates the stability for whatever structure we are building. This stability will begin with the most literal meaning of manifestation… To make clear or evident to the eye. We will begin this building process by clearly seeing and understanding what we authentically and genuinely want to replace the old with. This is the year that we will become completely clear about the change we want to begin building. To make good use of the special energies inherent in this year, we must stop focusing on what we don’t want. For those of you who were raked over the coals of change this last year, this will be easier because most likely what you resisted (but didn’t detach from consciously) has been rather painfully ripped from you by the universe at large. The form of change brought by 2018 is a softer form of change. I will use the metaphor of change inherent in the butterfly. When a caterpillar changes into a butterfly, it is dissolved into a primordial genetic soup. The caterpillar’s tissues are disintegrated. This is a destruction of the caterpillar that once was. But inherent in the primordial genetic soup, (just like a person’s soul purpose remains like a blue print no matter what is happening in their physical life) the blueprint for the butterfly that is meant to become remains unaltered. And then, the protein rich soup that was once tissue, begins to be called into alignment with that blueprint. The blueprint of the butterfly calls the disintegration of cells into organized form. A building process begins. A building of all the structures necessary for a butterfly to be. This is the phase of change brought by 2018. To understand this metaphor in human terms, I’ll give you an example. Lets imagine that in the past years, someone has been struggling intensely with relationships. The violent energy of the phase of change we are coming out of, may have led to a divorce in their life. The old relationship disintegrated. It is this year that this person will discover and clearly see what ingredients will act as the building material for the relationship they have always wanted. It is this year that they will begin putting that material into place within themselves so that the new relationship and any other residual relationships they may have with other people will become that relationship they have always wanted. This year, I am smiling because the energy of New Year’s Eve will not be a one a day celebration. Instead, the entire year of 2018 contains the energy of New Year’s Eve. This is the year that you will step into genuinely having let go of what was and instead building what you have always genuinely wanted in your heart of hearts. Many of you will ‘find your tribe’ this year. Many of you who have never known what internal stability is, will figure out what it is and begin building it. Many of you who have not been able to have a secure relationship, will find all the necessary building materials and begin creating one. Many of you who wore a mask towards the world will begin living an authentic life. There is a harmony inherent in this phase of change because it makes integration of the disintegration. There is an inherent harmony in this phase of change because when we begin building in alignment with our soul purpose and life mission, we are following our north star. In our physical embodiment, this feels like ecstatic rightness. It feels like inspiration. It feels like relief. It feels like a yes that is holding the very meaning for our life itself. The thing that I am the most looking forward to about 2018 is that the form of change that we are coming into is no longer that of chaos energy. Instead it is a kind of change that promises greater stability. It is a kind of change that promises rooting and grounding. The building of a foundation and a structure that is in alignment with our soul purpose and life mission inherently brings with it both structure and order to our lives. But we will not build this foundation and structure in our lives by following our rational minds. Instead our rational minds must be following the instruction of our intuition. Our inner wisdom, like a north star or an encoded blue print, will be the foreman of this building project. And we will be challenged to move slowly instead of frantically so as to build the most stable and long lasting structure possible and we must trust in the universal timing to do this. Having said all of this, the forecast for 2018 is that it is the year of building. The reason I cannot call this year the year of rebuilding is because we are not rebuilding anything. The things we are going to build in our lives this year, will be things that we are building for the very first time. To rebuild is for a caterpillar to dissolve and then to build a newer and more improved caterpillar. What we are going to be building this year metaphorically speaking is our individual (and naturally to follow, collective) butterfly. This year is infused with a very powerful and pure energy of conjuring. We will lay the foundation and begin building the life we want to live and more than that, the life we were always meant to live. We are not meant to realize that life is an illusion so that we can escape from it by pulling our energy out of the physical dimension. To the opposite, we are meant to make what is non-physical (our divinity so to speak) tangible and material. It will be in perfect alignment with our unique blueprint… The life purpose and soul mission that we were encoded with before we came to this life.
  2. The waves break slowly. They curl from right to left and from green to white, as far as the eye can see. Giant boats crawl in the depths offshore. Sandpipers wait for the wave break to drag back towards the sea to run forward and dip their beaks deep into the sand and shallow water. Beyond them, surfers play in the mellow surf in their black wet suits. One of them sits still for a long time, waiting for a pod of dolphins to reach him. Their fins shine like wet, black stone when they arch towards him above the surface of the water. He is having a spiritual experience as they encircle him. Nothing in his world exists outside this moment. They have called him into the present moment completely. I am in long beach California. Three days ago, we held a synchronization workshop at the Queen Mary. The Queen Mary is an old ship that sailed the ocean between 1936 and 1967. It was permanently moored in the port of Long Beach. I was curious about the level of interference we would experience as a result of the thought forms (ghosts) that are so famous to the ship. But the particular lecture hall (The Grand Salon) that we held the workshop in was not haunted and despite the amount of people we had in the room who are mediums and channels, the thought forms there were not magnetized to us. Before I hold an event, I am ‘prepared’ for the event by universal consciousness. This is one reason why I never personally prepare for an event. It is not a pleasant process. Usually it involves being submerged for days, weeks or sometimes months in whatever issues that the collective upcoming group I will be teaching to happen to share. It is as if I am submerged in the suffering that they are experiencing in order to find a way to bridge the gap between that unwanted state and the opposite wanted state. I can feel myself stretching to become that bridge. I feel like my cells are splitting apart to accommodate all the information that pours into me like a download in a computer program. Some nights leading up to an event, my whole body has a fever. My forehead and my back right behind my heart are so hot that I have to hold glass or metal or cold water to them. This phenomena that happens to me before an event also happens on a larger scale when there is a collective human suffering. And right now, that suffering is: Disconnection. It is everywhere. It is the root of suffering on this planet. And I have been christened in it. That christening has felt more like being drowned to death. To be honest with you, disconnection is what creates hell on earth. It is the scariest thing about this planet. Connection can be thought of as a link formed with something or someone else. If you are linked to something, you cannot affect it without affecting yourself. And this is really the greatest form of safety available on the planet for any living being. If you are disconnected from something, if you do not perceive that link, it is dangerous. Not only are you isolated; you can do things and say things that cause immense damage and pain to that thing without even noticing. The only way to cope with other people’s disconnection (because it is so painful) is to become disconnected yourself. But then you become part of the problem. You make the world more dangerous and less conducive to the wellbeing of all life on earth. You will eventually suffer the consequences of disconnecting. Disconnection is like an addiction. It will make you feel better in the short run but kill you in the long run. For example, a disconnected government official may declare war thinking it will be better in the short term. But in his disconnection, he does not see that the weaponry we are capable of using today could make it so that soon, he will have no country and no people to govern at all. When we are connected to each other, we are attuned. Attunement is being or bringing into harmony. It is a feeling of being “at one” with something. The best way to imagine attunement is to imagine sitting in your car and reaching out for the radio dial. If you want to hear the music being played at a specific frequency, like 98.2 FM, you need to tune your radio dial to 98.2 FM. And then you will hear the music. Your own radio dial needs to be brought into harmony with or become one with the radio channel you want to receive in order to perceive that radio channel. It’s no different with other beings, including people. To be able to perceive other people and to feel and see and hear them and understand them and communicate with them, you need to attune to them. You need to tune into them as if you are them so as to be able to feel or imagine the other person’s emotional experience and to understand what they are feeling . This is what allows you to know what to do in any given situation to end conflict or improve a situation or to assist someone. Attunement is what gives rise naturally to empathy. The most dangerous people in the world are people who are in an egocentric bubble. They are essentially toddlers in a grown up body holding kittens by the neck. But those kittens are other people. And even though it would be great if all people just naturally developed out of the egocentric bubble and into attunement, the reality is that some people do not. They stay in a reality built for one. When you are in a relationship with this kind of person you end up feeling lonely, unseen, unheard, unfelt, misunderstood and abused. You will feel like you are living in an entirely different reality than the other person. You will feel this way because, you quite literally are. You and this person are on entirely different frequencies and they are unwilling to tune into yours. It’s the same as trying to find harmony when you are on the 98.2 fm station and the other person being on the 94.5 am station. It is our disconnection that makes it so we are racist, declare war, see nothing wrong with slaughterhouses, imprison each other, can’t figure out how to parent our children the way they need to be parented, exploit the earth and every other living being in it and can’t find the third option with other people instead of playing a zero sum game. I will be teaching true connection for the rest of my life. But I have made a decision today. The decision I have made is that I am going to create a Holiday. Get out your calendar because I’m serious about this one and I am asking for your commitment to it. I want to turn my birthday (because connection is the thing I most want to see in this world), June 16th into International Connection Day. So many holidays seek to be about connection. Thanksgiving and Christmas are good examples of this. But as we all know too well, Christmas becomes a reminder of how much we don’t have family. We end up watching a football game or showing up to a party because we feel obligated. The central piece of the meal is either a goose or turkey, which means we have to disconnect from that species for our own pleasure. And the list goes on. No more painful holidays. I want this day to genuinely be entirely about connection. I am going to list some of the traditions that I suggest carrying out on this day. From there, I want people to create their own traditions centered around connection. 1. A potluck style meal, where each person contributes their creation or contribution to the collective meal is to be served preferably at 11:00 am. On this day, there will be no animal products consumed by any person. The traditional foods for this day are foods that represent connection such as braided breads, circular shaped foods or foods displayed in a circular manner. And foods that incorporate two distinct colors or cultures together. 2. Gathering together is a tradition on this day. There will be one very large annual gathering (where all people are invited to the celebration regardless of whether they consider themselves to be Teal Tribers or not) on this day somewhere in the world. And if you can’t make it to that one, to gather into smaller groups to practice togetherness. 3. Games and processes will be done as a group and/or in pairs on that day that enhance connection. Any practice that enhances connection can be observed on this day. 4. The color of the holiday is Teal (blue green) and Gold. If other colors are used, let them be those that are the combination of primary colors such as purple, gray, orange and green. 5. During the year, each person, family or community is to keep a weekly happiness jar. Each week, each person writes down the thing(s) that made them the most happy that week. On this day, the entire collection is to be burnt so the smoke can be symbolic of the items being sent back to the universe at large in gratitude and with a request for there to be more of those things in the coming year. 6. On this day, one of the traditions is a 22 minute silent ‘connection line’ walk, where each person in attendance will link a hand to form a line where each person is holding a hand of the person in front of them and behind them. They walk at a slow pace in silence, feeling the connection between them and feeling that where one goes, all go. At the end of the 22 minutes, all participants form a circle where the person at the end of the line is now connected to the person at the beginning of the line. And for 6 minutes, all participants use the energy of that connectivity to set the intention for interconnectedness around the world. This upcoming June 16th will be the birth of this holiday. We will be announcing the location of the large gathering that will be held somewhere in the world shortly. There is no substitute in this world for connection. Nothing can replace it. The future of our human family and this world depends upon it.
  3. The morning chorus is broken by an even louder noise, a howler monkey barking in the canopy of trees lining the hillside of the river. The locals call these monkeys ‘congos’. Like an alarm clock, the primal bellow of his sounds rumbles through Philia awakening everyone and everything to a new day. The tips of the palm trees are gently lifted as if being fondled by the breeze. Downstairs, the sounds of the kitchen are already in motion. I find the morning stirrings in the house comforting as well as the scents that are soon to follow. Downstairs, the rest of the members of this intentional community are trickling in. They are coming as if each one of them has been drawn out of the woodwork of Philia itself. Each one of them is like a different ingredient that enhances the emotional flavor of the room. It culminates in a social coziness. We greet one another as if we haven’t seen each other in a year even though we have only been apart for the night. I am in heaven on mornings like this. This is really living. Really living is loving each other. It is terrifying to know that by loving someone, they have so much power over you. Sitting here at this table, I feel how brave a person has to be to love. You have to be willing to admit that you’re committed and because of that commitment, anything they do or don’t do will effect you. The most unhappy people on this planet are the ones that live their lives trying to not be effected. The happiest are the ones that surrender to the fact that they will be effected and as such, place their delicate hearts in other people’s hands to hold. What a gift it is to hold these people’s hearts in my hands and to know that they hold mine in theirs. It is what I have always wanted. It is the most terrifying ecstasy to be felt on the planet. The retreat this last week was incredible. It was the kind of experience for all of us (attendees and staff alike) that cannot be described. It is ineffable… Ineffable growth, ineffable awareness, ineffable connection. There is so much confusion between people today. The false security that our relationships were built on is no longer able to pass itself off as real security of connection. Looking around the world, we seem puzzled about each other. We seem as if we are at a loss to understand each other. So much of the time when we run into conflicts in a relationship, we have no idea what is happening or why it is happening. We slip into the perception that the other person is completely unjustified and is being unfair with us. We tell ourselves that they are wrong and that they are crazy. We try to make sense of what is going on without remembering that the universe is a mirror. The universe we live in is a giant fractal mirror. Your reality mirrors you precisely so that by recognizing the mirror, you become aware and arrive at conscious choice. That being said, we do not often recognize the reflection when it shows up in the mirror. Because of this universal mirror principal, however you make someone feel (regardless of whether it is intentional or unintentional) will eventually become how they make you feel. All people and even more than that, all beings, make you feel exactly how they feel. And it isn’t usually intentional or conscious on their part. It is that their reaction to how you are making them feel, ends up making you feel the exact same way that they feel. For example, a man works from sun up to sundown. Because of this he is not making his wife feel loved. She feels like she has no value to him. Eventually, she gets a lover and cheats on her husband. He finds out and feels unloved. He feels like he has no value to her. Or for example, a wife feels secure when she controls all the planning for the household. Eventually this starts to make her husband feel totally powerless and out of control. Soon, he refuses to commit to any plans that she is making. This starts to make her feel powerless and out of control. Or for example, a person feels as if their life was destroyed by a group of people. Eventually, this person grabs a gun and starts killing them. This makes them feel as if their lives have been destroyed by this shooter. We can use the fact that people in our lives put us in the position to feel exactly the same way that they feel like we made them feel to our advantage. We can use it to understand other people completely. We can use that understanding to resolve our conflicts fast. We can use that understanding to see ourselves and our impact on other people clearly. Whenever someone makes you feel a certain way, especially in a conflict, consider that the way they are making you feel is the way you either have made them feel or are currently making them feel. So, first identify how you feel. If you’re in a painful relationship, write down the many different ways you feel. Then consider how you might have made or be making them feel that way. Despite what they may be saying or doing, see them and their actions through this new lens of seeing clearly how they feel because now that you are feeling it, you do get it. From there switch your strategy of resolution. Now that you recognize how they feel, make the conflict resolution deliberately about the way they feel. Do and say things that make them feel the opposite. For example, using one of the examples I gave previously, the man would go straight to the root by addressing the feeling of not being loved and valued. He would do things to make her feel loved and valued. The wife would go straight to the root by addressing the feeling of being totally powerless and out of control. She would say and do things that made him feel empowered and more in control of himself. If we focus our efforts on making them feel differently, (for example valued or in control instead) it is an inevitability of this universe that they will in turn make us feel differently. The reflection in the mirror will change. There is a certain beauty to this cruelty. We are in essence condemning each other into a state of forced compassion so as to awaken one another. And even though it is an entirely unconscious process, it shows how deeply we want to merge with one another… How desperate we are to love.
