DEATH IS A SAILING SHIP WHICH WILL ALSO BE WELCOMED ON ANOTHER SHORE








Since I have seen my mother when she reached through the curtain and touched me in an after-death experience in 1987 as well as my deceased twin brother two years ago when he intervened and saved my life on Highway 4. I am aware that my grandfather is still very much alive in my heart and will eventually be welcoming me home to a safe harbor with his soft heart and warm embrace ~ for those who we love deeply become part of us forever: Allen L Roland, PhD  

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. " - Arundhati Roy


The Sailing Ship   by Charles Henry Brent



"What is dying?
I am standing on the seashore.
A ship sails to the morning breeze and starts for the ocean.
She is an object and I stand watching her
Till at last she fades from the horizon,
And someone at my side says, “She is gone!” Gone where?
Gone from my sight, that is all;
She is just as large in the masts, hull and spars as she was when I saw her,
And just as able to bear her load of living freight to its destination.
The diminished size and total loss of sight is in me, not in her;
And just at the moment when someone at my side says, “She is gone”,
There are others who are watching her coming,
And other voices take up a glad shout,
“There she comes”
~ and that is dying."

My enclosed photo of my beloved grandfather joyously awaits watching the horizon for my eventual approaching sail as well as with my deceased mother and my late twin brother who cannot barely contain his excitement ~ "There he comes"

The thread of a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness lies not only beyond time and space ~ but is also beneath our deepest fears ~ and when our heart achieves its desire ~ we shall transcend time and space as William Blake indeed demonstrated by singing songs to his wife at his passage.














My grandfather, Joseph Allen Bryant

“And we are put on this earth a little space that we might learn to bear the beams of love”  ~ William Blake

DOOMSDAY CLOCK MOVES 2.5 MINUTES TO MIDNIGHT








 







On the 26th of January, 2017, the Doomsday moved forward to 2 minutes and 30 seconds to midnight ~ created by the Bulletin of Atomic Scientists in 1947 to convey the urgent threat nuclear weapons pose as well as other threats such as climate change also taken into account. Last year, the clock remained at 3 minutes. Today, with the Inauguration of Donald Trump, the clock has moved half a minute closer ~ the closest to midnight it’s been since 1953 with the JFK Cuban nuclear crisis. Noam Chomsky offers an important question to the planet today ~ Is it better to be smart than stupid ~ and it demands our collective response: Allen L Roland, PhD

 

"It's a near miracle that nuclear war has so far been avoided." ~ Noam Chomsky

 



 











 

Noam Chomsky / THE PROSPECTS FOR SURVIVAL / 90 Minutes


 

This is a riveting Chomsky hour long presentation but also listen to the 30 minute question and answer response ~ you will be rewarded for this timely and teaching Chomsky experience ~ particularly since we must repeat the doomsday clock by stopping Trump in his tracks ~ for our eventual survival is at risk.

TAKING A STAND FOR A GREAT TRUTH


As our civil liberties slowly erode with a corporate state under control of the Military/Industrial complex and global elite ~ that want war ~ 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 ~ The Unified Field is my great truth for which I take this peaceful stand: Allen L Roland, PhD

 

"Love alone is capable of uniting living beings in such a way as to complete and fulfill them for it alone takes them and joins them to what is deepest within themselves"  Teilhard de Chardin, The Phenomenon of Man

 

 I could literally feel love and joy leap from my heart toward my beloved Grandfather as a young child ~ I knew and deeply felt a great truth and a few years later I knew my destiny would take me to the West Coast where I would eventually live my dreams of not only being a Navy Interceptor Carrier pilot and in the process conquering the speed of sound but eventually surpass the speed of light by surrendering to love and conquering fear in the process.

 

Then it was the slow process of writing my Unified Field Theory and eventually proving to myself and my clients that this Unified Field of love and soul consciousness lies not only the sole constant of the universe but also this joyous bliss lies beneath our deepest pain and fear. The lifeblood of this universal Unified field is gratitude ~ for this God of love only reveals itself to a grateful heart.

 

Here are the three Tenets of the Unified Field ~ all of which I have proved in my life and through my work with thousands of clients.

 



Finding the Unified Field was an act of surrender. Owning and proving it has been an act of courage. Initially, it was surrendering to and embracing an alone little boy within me who always knew this truth. Then it was a slow process of finding the courage to stand alone, own my truth, and speak it, regardless of the risks.


Let me make this clear - every tenet of my Unified Field is based on my own personal experience and my experience with my clients. Which is why it took eight years for me to fully prove it and which is why I no longer call it a theory.

What follows are the three basic tenets of the Unified Field.


Tenet One


The basic underlying force of the universe is a psychic energy field of universal love, within which gravitational and electromagnetic fields, the strong and weak forces in the atom, and all other forces of nature, including time and space, are merely conditions of state. Within this psychic realm of love, paranormal events such as clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition and near-death experiences are also conditions of state.


The principal property of this field of love is its propensity to unite, complete and fulfill all living beings within a constantly evolving loving plan.


This field of love is the absolute constant of the universe in that within it, time and space do not exist. Thus, we are instantly joined with the past, present and future of a universe which is in the process of uniting, completing and fulfilling itself.


Tenet Two


The consciousness of the observer is the determining factor in being able to perceive the Unified Field, and the depth of one's sensory experience is what determines this consciousness.


In that regard, our most profound sensory experience is the total surrender to what is deepest within ourselves, that is, the surrender to love and a joyful state of soul consciousness - which is the awareness of an evolving loving plan and the taking of responsibility for one's function within that plan.


The Unified Field is therefore a state of soul consciousness. That state which limits or denies our perception of the Unified Field is ego consciousness.


Tenet Three


It would appear that the pain of not feeling loved for oneself and being seemingly separated from our original state of soul consciousness and the Unified Field is of such deep psychic proportions that, early in childhood, processes are triggered in the hypothalamus which result in a left brain imbalance and dominance as well as the denial, mistrust and forgetting of our connection to the Unified Field and the love and joy and a state of soul consciousness deepest within us.

   
It is from this dark tunnel of pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death that the ego and ego consciousness is born - for survival and protection purposes only. As such, death or the idea of death, is an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness.


Think of the ego as a protective cocoon that is eventually meant to be shed. The Unified Field can be visualized as a grid of great luminosity joining all living beings within its energy field of love.


The words of Longfellow would seem appropriate in describing this all-encompassing field or grid of love ~ "The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite."















 





Once again, at 83 years old, my heart is brimming with love and gratitude for my late beloved Grandfather, Joseph Allen Bryant, who not only unconditionally loved me but allowed me to love him so deeply that he became part of me forever ~ as well as the inspiration for my mission of heart centered service and work.

 

Martin Luther King Jr asked himself that same question at 38 years old, on November 5, 1967, in a sermon at the Ebenezer Baptist Church when King obviously sensed his mission and destiny and knew there was only one answer he could live with.

 

"SO PRECIOUS THAT YOU WILL DIE FOR IT"

“ I say to you, this morning, that if you have never found something so dear and so precious to you that you will die for it, then you aren't fit to live.

 

"You may be thirty-eight years old, as I happen to be, and one day, some great opportunity stands before you and calls upon you to stand up for some great principle, some great issue, some great cause. And you refuse to do it because you are afraid. You refuse to do it because you want to live longer. You're afraid that you will lose your job, or you are afraid that you will be criticized or that you will lose your popularity, or you're afraid that somebody will stab you or shoot at you or bomb your house.

 

So you refuse to take the stand. Well, you may go on and live until you are ninety, but you are just as dead at thirty-eight as you would be at ninety. And the cessation of breathing in your life is but the belated announcement of an earlier death of the spirit. You died when you refused to stand up for right. You died when you refused to stand up for truth. You died when you refused to stand up for justice....

Don't ever think that you're by yourself. Go on to jail if necessary, but you never go alone. Take a stand for that which is right, and the world may misunderstand you, and criticize you. But you never go alone, for somewhere I read that one with God is a majority. And God has a way of transforming a minority into a majority.”

 

             *                      *

The question is, dear readers ~ are you willing to stand alone and overcome fear for what is right in a world apparently gone blindly wrong ~ as we relentlessly aim toward war.

 

Now I fully understand what one of my great teachers, Grace Petitclerc, told me many years ago when I was initially formulating my Unified Field Theory ~"Allen, Standing alone and singing your song or sharing your truth is really belonging."

 

Personally, I have taken and made a stand for a great truth, for a Unified Field of love, joy and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also deepest within each one of us ~ the driving force is a principal property of a  universal urge to unite and we all  have a part to play as a co-creator in this loving plan in action.

 

Like Martin Luther King Jr, I’ve seen and felt along with my clients the joy, intention and state of soul consciousness that lies both beneath our deepest fears and beyond our present state of fear based ego consciousness.

 

How can I ever forget a combat veteran with PTSD in Band of Brothers #1 who could not forgive his first wife ~ he finally called her and took her off the hook with love and gratitude, with my urging, and in the process claimed a lost, alone and joyful child within himself who is now in heart centered service as a combat veteran counselor.

 

How can I forget a combat veteran with PTSD  in Band of Brothers #5 who was consumed with anger and hatred toward his girlfriend who seemingly betrayed him, while he was on tour, when he suddenly with my guidance saw her as a loving gift in his life and burst into joy and laughter and make a shift to soul consciousness and service through gratefulness and recovered long suppressed love and self-healing.

 

How can I forget another combat veteran with PTSD in Band of Brothers #11 who had lost all hope for recovery when I reached across the table, took him by the hand and connected him with his late beloved grandfather and literally jump started his life into a new state of soul consciousness, self-healing and service.

 

And how can I forget the hundreds of clients, both civilians and veterans, who opened their hearts through gratefulness as I watched their inner light go on as they began to thrillingly see through clearer eyes.

 

So much of my heart centered work can be summed up in this poem by Guillaume Apollinaire ~

 

“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, We will fall!" they responded.
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”


Like Martin Luther King Jr, I have also been to the top of the Mountain, gone beyond my fears and know what lies beyond the difficult days ahead in a Trump/Bannon administration, for as King wrote ~ “We are all tied together in the single garment of destiny, caught in an inescapable network of mutuality. And whatever effects one directly effects all indirectly.”  

 

Here is a video clip from Martin Luther King Jr’s last but incredibly moving speech before he was assassinated almost 50 years ago on April 4th, 1968  ~ 1.17 minute Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0FiCxZKuv8

 

 

It is my mentor Teilhard de Chardin, from beyond time and space ~ the Jesuit priest, paleontologist and explorer of the soul, whose life's work was the reinterpretation of Christianity in the light of evolution.

It is Teilhard, who stands impatiently at the summit of man's quest for the ultimate truth proclaiming to all that God is not only love but the most powerful and mysterious of the cosmic forces as well as the primal and universal psychic energy ~ "Love stands as the threshold of another universe."

 

Teilhard wrote in his last unpublished work, " Le Christique

(The Promised Land), of the inevitable consequences when this truth appears;

 

"Sooner or later there will be a chain reaction ~ for the truth has to appear only once, in one single mind, for it to be impossible for anything ever to prevent it from spreading universally and setting everything ablaze."

 

Can it really be this simple?

 

Yes it is ~ and this is a great truth that shall eventually set everything ablaze.

OBAMAS WERE REAL THING VERSUS FAKE CARDBOARD CUTOUTS AND REALITY TV









Click on photo to enlarge




Trumps and Obamas on Inauguration day 2017

 

This picture of the incoming and outgoing president on Inauguration day 2017 tells you everything you need to know about Trump and Obama. One saw himself as President of the people and the other sees himself unfortunately as a dictator and enforcer of his mandate. Both have many things in common but only Obama has maintained the childlike enthusiasm of a child: Allen L Roland, PhD

 

"There are differences between the two presidents, of course. Obama got to the White House despite the lingering racism in American life and politics. Trump stoked that racism and gleefully rode it into Washington." Andrew Rosenthal, New York Times

 

Andrew Rosenthal, New York Times,  spells out what Trump and Obama have in common in an Opinion piece on March 28th.

 

Excerpt: "Obama was too confident in his own powers of persuasion. Trump’s belief in his powers of persuasion is so inflated that it amounts to narcissism.


Obama was distrusted by American corporate leaders. Trump is one of them.


Obama came to Washington to govern. Trump came to preen.


Obama had a specific agenda with actual legislative proposals. Trump has tweets.


Obama showed a detailed understanding of policy issues. He could talk about them with authority and was thoroughly steeped in history.

Trump doesn’t seem to know the first thing about much of anything, past or present.

“Nobody knew health care could be so complicated,” he famously said as people who did know that were hard at work on Capitol Hill coming up with a proposal to replace Obamacare that failed spectacularly last week and left Trump looking like a fool (to everyone except himself).


But as new presidents, Obama and Trump share that debilitating belief in their own public relations.

Obama got over it eventually. Will Trump?"


 

I miss the realness and humanness of the Obama's and I'm sure many other Americans feel the same thing particularly as we witness the ongoing fabrications emerging from the Trump / Bannon Administration..  



We all had many expectations about Barack Obama and many of those remain unfulfilled but we must all agree that there was nothing fake about the humanness of the Obama's ~ this eight minute video illustrates many of the lessons they taught us by just being and sharing  their true selves versus our current Reality TV Trump administration. 



Must see 8 minute you tube video ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FKzmXJAOEi8&feature=em-subs_digest-vrecs


There is nothing as precious as the human touch or the genuine smile of a child as well as leaders who recognize this ~ thank you Barack and Michelle.

GAMECOCKS DEFENSE WILL PREVAIL IN NCAA BIG DANCE FINAL

"South Carolina’s players said Thursday that it was easy to pinpoint from where their defensive prowess stems. It is from Coach Martin, who calls the defense his “baby” and designed it in his image, an image he projects as he prowls the sidelines with a glare that could melt ice" ~ Zach Shonbrun/ New York Times

 

It's March and that means the NCAA basketball tournament and if you're not in a bracket pool, you're totally out of touch with the beauty and anguish of the annual big dance of college basketball.

 

In the Mercer Pool ~ I picked Duke as the winner figuring they were the hot team going into the tournament and of course they had the legendary Coach K as their coach.

 

Of course they trampled Troy in the 1st round and would face the South Carolina #7 seeded Gamecocks in the second round ~ which should bolt them into the sweet 16.

 

As I eagerly tuned into that game, I quickly became aware the Gamecocks were a force that was not to be underestimated ~ as their frantic defense broke down the disciplined Duke offense and left Coach K muttering to himself in disbelief.

 

At that moment , I recognized that the Cinderella team of this tournament were the gamecocks with their defensive genius coach, Frank Martin

The gamecocks followed their upset of Duke with a complete thrashing of third-seeded Baylor, 70-50, and now zoomed into the elite 8 to face Florida ~ propelled by a victory that McGuire, who died in 1994, would unquestionably have adored.

It all starts with our mindset,” Martin said. “We have got guys that are completely bought into what we do.”

As Zack Shonbrun reported the New York times ~ "South Carolina’s defense only seemed to intensify in the second half, as did its effect on the Bears. Baylor’s players dropped easy passes, dribbled off their own feet, and stepped mindlessly out of the bounds.


I felt like we were in their heads the whole game,” said Sindarius Thornwell, the Gamecocks’ senior forward.

South Carolina’s players said Thursday that it was easy to pinpoint from where their defensive prowess stems. It is from Martin, who calls the defense his “baby” and designed it in his image, an image he projects as he prowls the sidelines with a glare that could melt ice."








Gamecocks Coach Frank Martin

When asked how the Gamecocks had managed to beat two of its last three opponents (Duke and Baylor) by 20 points each, sophomore guard P.J. Dozier had the answer immediately.

Defense,” he said. “That’s what we hang our hats on. That’s what this coaching staff instilled in us.”


And I predict that The gamecock's defense will carry them to the final four as well as the NCAA championship.

Here's a brief video of the Gamecocks upset victory over Baylor ~ two minute video ~ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ozEQdOJUKcI
