Summer Fields

Summer How green and bright they are!  How still they lie!
The summer fields out-stretching in the sun:
An emerald glory, sharp as any cry,
Dipping beneath the racing winds that run
Across the summer day on swift light feet,
To silver the little leaning, laughing grass,
To gild the tossing beads of ripening wheat.

Here is peace to store within the breast
Against the days of tumult and despair.
Within this cool green light the heart can rest,
The body strengthens in the clear clean air,
The soul grows tall, the viol-string tensions cease
Here in this summer stillness, summer peace.

Despite today's shooting in Virginia against Congressional members ~ reflecting a deep anger which permeates much of our electorate ~ we must also be aware in our internet connected world where we are gradually feeling our collective innate urge to connect and unite ~ which is the principle property of a  Unified Field  of love and soul consciousness. This state of unity consciousness is also seen in our innate need to hopefully become agents of change in a world that increasingly desires change driven by altruism, social cooperation and common sense versus the alternative choices of selfishness, war and greed: Allen L Roland. PhD



"If there were no real propensity to unite, even at a prodigiously rudimentary level , indeed, in the molecule itself, it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up in the 'humanized' or human form" :Teilhard de Chardin



Charles Pierce. Esquire, fully captures Washington DC these days ~  "Washington is stuck in a kind of Cassandra Syndrome. Everybody knows the disaster is coming but nobody knows how to stop it, and too many people don't want to because they figure they can get rich selling off the ruins."


"But everybody knows the disaster is coming. People talk about it matter-of-factly, the way they talk about rain when the dark clouds gather over the monuments by the river."

"They also talk about it in whispers while every institution of democratic government screams for help. The government of the United States is in the hands of feckless time-servers and coat-holders at one end of Pennsylvania Avenue, and in the hands of an unpredictable and perilous clown show at the other. It is an altogether remarkable, if terrifying, place to be as summer comes on."

"Jesus, won't somebody get the net?"  ~ or better yet, I ask, will someone make sense of this foreboding nightmare.


Unity Consciousness mostly means thinking and ultimately acting in ways that unite us to ourselves, others, Nature or to the God of our understanding


The video Connected  shares a way out of this net and questions about what kind of future we all want to see. Filmed on a journey across Europe, the film seeks to connect with others to discuss key issues that affect us all on a global scale ~ particularly the need to be an agent of change and make a difference.


45 years ago as I was making a painful shift from a state of an ego consciousness of greed and possessiveness to a state of soul consciousness of radical love and altruism ~ inspired by reading Charles Reich's  book The Greening of America  ~ I gradually changed my perspective from individual to the collective if not a state of  global unity consciousness.




Looking back, It was 1970 and the country had seemingly lost hope along with the loss of our political and spiritual leaders ~


JFK assassinated in 1963 ~ a corporate power statement,


RFK assassinated in June, 1968 ~ another corporate power statement


MLK assassinated in August, 1968 ~ a dagger in the heart of the peace movement.


Richard Nixon was sworn in as president in January 1970 but the country had never fully recovered from the loss of JFK, RFK and Martin Luther King, Jr ~ we were in a state of moral apathy and perfect fodder for Nixon and Kissinger to manipulate our collective fears by bombing Cambodia and then Nixon increased domestic spying and abused his power and lost his presidency in the process.



I, like many Americans sensed the country's moral vacuum, and personally was more than ready for another choice versus buying and selling stocks as an Investment Banker.


Our country had surrendered to the dark side, the military-Industrial complex was in full control and Nixon's paranoia was already becoming evident. We had lost our soul bearings and a collective alarm for light workers was sounded ~ for me, Charles Reich's The Greening of America  was part of that universal call.


The recent televised loyalty of Trump's cabinet ominously reminded me of what happened over 80 years ago in the fascist third Reich ~

The Wehrmacht Oath of Loyalty to Adolf Hitler, 2 August 1934


"I swear by God this sacred oath that I shall render unconditional obedience to Adolf Hitler, the Führer of the German Reich, supreme commander of the armed forces, and that I shall at all times be prepared, as a brave soldier, to give my life for this oath."


At approximately that same time in the 1930 's as a very young child ~ I first experienced a great soul call and state of soul consciousness  when I leaned out that window in Newtonville, Massachusetts, with my favorite song (I’m Back in the Saddle Again) blaring in the background, my heart filled with love and joy, and knew, for a moment in time, that I was connected to all of nature through that same deep love and delight I was feeling deepest within myself . See article ~



When I leaned out a window ~ I absolutely felt and knew a great truth which made me a citizen of the world  at that moment ~ my task was to identify it and eventually share it with the planet as I have eventually done through my work and writings.


It was the great Egyptian writer Mahfouz who wrote ” When the heart achieves its desire, you shall transcend time and space “ and the heart’s desire, I  maintain, is to return to its original source of love, joy and soul consciousness ~ the Unified Field which, indeed, transcends time and space as well as lies deepest within us.

The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite ~ Longfellow

Thus, my whole life has been a journey to surrender to love, fully open my heart and eventually see through that child’s innocent and knowing eyes again ~ and courageously share what I am sharing now with you.

For the past 45 years I have demonstrated the presence of this Unified Field of love and soul consciousness, which lies beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears ~ not only with my clients but also with my combat veterans with PTSD who found that beneath their deepest anger, hatred and resentment was indeed love, joy, intention and a need to be in service ~ and well over 100 of them are presently in heart-centered service as well as seeing through different eyes.

Connected shares the real urgency for all of us to get involved and positively working towards change on many levels in order to secure a sustainable and fair world for future generations to inherit. See 40 minute video ~

What next, Steve ?

Now that Trump has abdicated his leadership of the free world ~ by scuttling the Paris climate accords ~ we may well be witnessing the next self- destructive step in the Bannon/Trump long range agenda which Bannon once described as "We want to bring everything crashing down and destroy all of today's establishment"  which is now one step closer including the Trump administration ~ as Global warming and the search for truth march on: Allen L Roland, PhD


"Antonio Gramsci wrote his “Prison Notebooks” at a time not dissimilar to our own. The political parties led by the liberal class, because they had detached themselves from the working class, were weak or irrelevant. The radical left had been neutered and had failed to articulate a coherent alternative vision to capitalism. There was a “crisis of authority.” Fascism was ascendant and a state repression was becoming steadily more severe and totalitarian"  Chris Hedges


 A decision to leave the Paris agreement doesn’t fundamentally change any of the Paris Accord but Trump wasn’t planning to aggressively tackle global warming before, and he still won’t ~ for Trump has not only damaged his world leadership role but has gone rogue and isolated himself in the process as he continues to self-destruct.


 But Frank Rich, the New Yorker, hits the nail on its head;


“I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris,” Trump declared when he marked his reckless decision with a bizarre Rose Garden celebration (complete with a military band playing jazz).

It’s not certain that he even understood that the pact was no more a Parisian invention than Freedom Fries. But facts were always beside the point in making this move: his only goal was to pander to a political base that buys Steve Bannon’s brand of America First populism. In the process Trump alienated virtually the entire world, all of America’s key allies included; the majority of Americans who (polls show) support the Paris accord; corporate leaders from nearly every sector of American business (from Google to Goldman Sachs to GE); and the governmental and civic leaders of every state and municipality eager to protect the citizenry from climate change and/or to cash in on the expanding green economy.  What could possibly go wrong?

Not to minimize Trump’s threat to the planet but leadership outside of Washington is now finally energized to fill the vacuum he’s left behind, and the elections of 2018 and 2020 are likely to further hinder this administration’s assault on environmental regulation.

Meanwhile, the Trump base is once again being played for the patsies they are. As Richard Painter, the former chief ethics lawyer in the George W. Bush White House, tweeted last night: “This White House is creating more jobs for criminal defense lawyers in Washington than it will ever create for steelworkers in Pittsburgh.”

But regarding Trump, we are all watching a known falsifier of facts and deeply insecure President being slowly dissembled by the truth ~ in real time and in true citizen Kane fashion much as Richard Nixon was in the early 1970's.

In that regard, Mark Z Barabak, LA Times, interviews John Dean on June 1st ~ regarding the current Trump cover up in the in comparison to the Nixon administration;

Excerpt of John Dean interview:

"John Dean is a connoisseur of cover-ups, a savant of scandal, so he can more than imagine what it’s like inside the Trump White House right now.

“It’s a nightmare,” he said, presiding in a high-backed leather wing chair off the lobby of the Beverly Hills Hotel. "Not just for those in the headlines ~ political strategist Stephen K. Bannon, jack-of-many-duties Jared Kushner ~ but for their unsung assistants and secretaries as well."

"They don’t know what their jeopardy is. They don’t know what they’re looking at. They don’t know if they’re a part of a conspiracy that might unfold. They don’t know whether to hire lawyers or not, how they’re going to pay for them if they do,” Dean said in a crisp law-counsel cadence. “It’s an unpleasant place.”

Dean was careful to say he has no inside information on the Trump administration, no Deep Throat, the famous Watergate leaker, funneling him tales of intrigue from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. But, he said, he knows the odor of malfeasance, even from 3,000 miles away.

I’ve been inside a cover-up. I know why we could make certain things go away and other things not go away. And that’s because some things, you just couldn’t make them disappear,” he said. He might have been roughing out a verbal draft of “Scandal Containment for Dummies.”   See LA Times article ~


Here are some facts about the Paris climate accords ~

1. California Gov. Jerry Brown has characterized Trump’s move as “deviant behavior” and “insane” ~ and the governor is correct.

2. Trump, by his action, has turned the United States into a rogue nation. Apparently, Trump’s White House Rasputin, senior advisor Steve Bannon, and climate quacks like EPA Secretary Scott Pruitt sold him on the preposterous fallacy that the U.S. is a deeply aggrieved party in the deal.

3. Paris is popular. And there’s no reason to expect a broader exodus. China and Europe are openly reaffirming their commitments. Among the major polluters, only Russia and Turkey have dithered, but even their departure probably wouldn’t suffice to unravel the treaty.


4.This isn’t really about climate policy. It's all about asserting Trump power !

Leaving the Paris accords, however, would give Trump a big symbolic victory, burnishing his credentials as America’s true defender against the out-of-touch concerns of the global elite ~ but it was in reality an empty symbolic victory.





We are now also witnessing the sad spectacle of our President exhibiting many of the classic traits of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder) whereas his need for excessive admiration as well as his inability to accept criticism and deal with failure are cause for genuine global concern.


It appears that Donald Trump's late night tweets are taking its toll on his mental balance as the Moeller Probe closes in on the Trump administration ~ for example Trump's recent early morning Tweet ~ COVFETTE ~ could well be his subliminal awareness of his cover up in his tired late night state. (See keyboard and note how close E and F as well as R ~ where he perhaps tried to write Cover up / Fed up, before he succumbed to sleep.


Experts have been writing letters making this claim to a number of publications. One letter was published by the Huffington Post claiming that Trump’s grandiosity and impulsivity suggests that he may have a mental illness, while another psychologist who wrote to U.S. News and World Report said Trump may have malignant narcissism.

And a letter to the New York Times that was signed by several psychologists says that the grave emotional instability indicated by Mr. Trump’s speech and actions makes him incapable of serving safely as president.”

We are writing to express our grave concern regarding the mental stability of our President-Elect,” reads the letter submitted to then-President Obama by three psychologists and published in the Huffington Post.


“Professional standards do not permit us to venture a diagnosis for a public figure whom we have not evaluated personally. Nevertheless, his widely reported symptoms of mental instability ~ including grandiosity, impulsivity, hypersensitivity to slights or criticism, and an apparent inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality ~ lead us to question his fitness for the immense responsibilities of the office.

We strongly recommend that, in preparation for assuming these responsibilities, he receive a full medical and neuropsychiatric evaluation by an impartial team of investigators.”


Now, let's take a closer look at Trump's principle advisor ~ Stephen Bannon ;

I'm a Leninist," Bannon once told the Daily Beast. "Lenin wanted to destroy the state, and that's my goal, too. I want to bring everything crashing down and destroy all of today's establishment."

" Whether speaking to supporters of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin or to listeners on his former radio show, Bannon has long employed the revolutionary language of a political insurgent.

And like political insurgents through history, including Lenin, Bannon and other like-minded ideologues in the Trump White House view disruption and polarization as means of pressing ahead with their agenda and rallying their core supporters.

But Bannon's radical approach carries big risks and amounts to a high-stakes gamble that Trump can deliver sufficiently on his ambitious promises to satisfy both his loyal supporters and those ready to roll the dice who voted him into office.

The result has been chaotic and often disorganized, prompting satiric television sketches and accusations from veteran Washington hands that the administration is amateurish and inept. Trump's approval ratings fall by the day.


But what by conventional measures looks like a string of setbacks and misfires could to an ideologue like Bannon be proof that the administration is on the right track to achieving its goal ~ destroying what he calls the Washington "establishment."  


What's less clear is what might take its place.

It will not be a stretch to witness a false flag event or war to utilize the media to reinforce more lies, similar to Iraq ~ which will then cost even more unnecessary lives. See Amy Goodman video ~ YouTube Video ~ 3 minutes ~

The American system of representative government has been overthrown by a profit-driven, militaristic corporate deep state bent on total control and global domination through the imposition of a looming police state here at home and fermenting wars abroad but in the process ~ however, many have also become gradually aware of a far deeper choice and a soul based reality of a Unified Field that demands that we surrender to a state of Radical Love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite ~ which we continue to resist at our great risk: Allen L Roland, PhD

"The basic underlying and uniting force of the universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness ( the Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite": Allen L Roland, PhD

Let me set the present precarious moment we are experiencing ~ from the perspective of the Vermont Republic regarding our own Kairos or our propitious moment for decision, action or opportunity. "But what about today?  Have we not arrived at our very own Kairos? 

We, the citizens of the United States and the rest of the world, find it increasingly difficult to escape the clutches of the largest, wealthiest, most powerful, most materialistic, most environmentally irresponsible, most racist, most militaristic, most violent empire in history which does little to support the vast majority of its citizens or any other citizens than its own superrich.  We are haunted by the nihilism of separation, meaninglessness, and powerlessness and subsumed by political elites who use corporate, state, and military power to manipulate our lives.  We have become mere pawns of a global system of dominance and deceit known as technofascism in which transnational megacompanies and megastates control us through money, markets, technology, and media, sapping our political will, civil liberties, collective memory, traditional cultures, sustainability, and independence.  We are all victims of affluenza, technomania, cybermania, megalomania, globalization, and imperialism."

See article ~

John W. Whitehead, ICH,  Battlefield America: The War on the American People (Select Books, 2015) ~ has made the same point that the Deep State coup d'état has already been most successful and most Americans remain mainly indifferent;
    Excerpt: "Even Dwight D. Eisenhower, the retired five-star Army general - turned-president who warned against the disastrous rise of misplaced power by the military industrial complex was complicit in contributing to the build-up of the military’s role in dictating national and international policyInstead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the decaying American republic."

    As such, we must enlist the mainstream media to represent a deeper soul reality versus our present war driven deep state of ego consciousness ~

Amy Goodman appeared on AJ+ recently to discuss the way the media covers President Trump and militarism and how the media is failing us ~

Where the media falls down is when it comes to war, as is so often the case. When President Trump bombed a Syrian airfield, that’s when the media, which had been critical of Trump before, started talking about him becoming president on that day.

That is unacceptable, when the media circles the wagons around the White House when it comes to war. When the media acts as a conveyor belt for the lies of the administration, the lies take lives. We need a media that allows people to speak for themselves."  YouTube Video ~ 3 minutes ~

Note how similar this is to an excerpt from ‘They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45’ by Milton Mayer, I add:

“This separation of government from people, this widening of the gap, took place so gradually and so insensibly, each step disguised (perhaps not even intentionally) as a temporary emergency measure or associated with true patriotic allegiance or with real social purposes. And all the crises and reforms (real reforms, too) so occupied the people that they did not see the slow motion underneath, of the whole process of government growing remoter and remoter."


It was from that deep right wing polarization and distrust of the disenfranchised government by the people that Hitler became the outspoken lightning rod voice of and disillusioned in the 1930's and the Jews became marginalized and virtually eradicated as the nationalized fascist corporate state was born.

A flashback to the past ~ "As we approach this question of what Trump is,' ~ it's important for us to realize that ~ regardless of our assessments of his level of intelligence, or his adolescent mentality, or his bizarre mannerisms ~ he is in the most powerful seat in the world. Trump (similar to Hitler once was) is dangerous and he needs to be taken seriously" ~  Dahr Jamail ,

How Ironic it is that I am writing about a creeping fascism unfolding in the United States when I was watching the same thing happening on News Reel reports 75 years ago as a young child as Adolf Hitler was increasingly being seen as dangerous and not to be taken seriously by the German people and world,

Back to Whitehead's remarkable prescience post ~ "If America has been at war more than we’ve been at peace over the past half century, it’s because the country is in the clutches of a greedy military empire with a gargantuan, profit-driven appetite for war. Indeed, the U.S. has been involved in an average of at least one significant military action per year, “ranging from significant fighting in Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan to lesser incursions in such far-flung countries as Kuwait, Bosnia, Pakistan, Libya, Grenada, Haiti and Panama… That total does not count more limited U.S. actions, such as drone strikes.”

Instead, the American people have been given the boiling frog treatment, immersed in water that slowly is heated up ~ degree by degree ~ so that they’ve fail to notice that they’re being trapped and cooked and killed.

We the people” are in hot water now " From Clinton to Bush, then Obama and now Trump, it’s as if we’ve been caught in a time loop, forced to re-live the same thing over and over again: the same assaults on our freedoms, the same disregard for the rule of law, the same subservience to the Deep State, and the same corrupt, self-serving government that exists only to amass power, enrich its shareholders and ensure its continued domination."

"The republic has fallen to fascism with a smile….. Elections will not save us."

"Learn the treacherous lessons of 2008 and 2016:  presidential elections have made a mockery of our constitutional system of government, suggesting that our votes can make a difference when, in fact, they merely serve to maintain the status quo."  See Whitehead article ~

*          *            *         

Which leads us now to our Kairos and the point of decision where we are now being given another opportunituy ~ there is indeed another choice ~ we must go within, open our hearts and by manifesting a Radical Love ~ begin to see through clearer eyes as well as take our part in a loving plan in action.

As author of  Radical Therapy / Surrender to Love and Heal Yourself in Seven sessions ( not seven years )  I should define Radical ~ which means "proceeding from the root, reaching for the center or ultimate source."

I have developed the proven skills over 45 years to help my clients regain their "lost souls"  by jump starting their hearts through gratefulness and eventually help them regain their original state of joyful state of soul consciousness in the process.  All of which is outlined in my Kindle eBook ~


And here is a link to the YouTube sessions of the process I teach `~ watch Marina conquer her deepest fear:


It is also my opinion that the near and after death experience allow someone to momentarily pass through the dark tunnel of internal pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death, from which the ego and ego consciousness are born, into a state of soul consciousness as well as our deepest connection to the Unified Field  ~ as well as seeing through clearer eyes.

Imagine my delight when I recently experienced the voice of RIVERA SUN / Peace Voice ~ TRANSCEND Media Service ~ on  May 17th ~ she was seeing through different eyes and sharing my same essential truth;

Here are Rivera's heartfelt words ;

"Every cell in our collective and individual bodies is screaming for this nutrient called love. And because we can’t get it, we crave paltry substitutions such as power, domination, money, and violence."

"Privilege provides no shelter from this deficiency. In fact, it tends to make it worse. For the structure of success in the United States of America has been built on a centuries-old devil’s bargain in which we cut out a piece of our heart to secure money, power, and position."

"From the early colonists massacring Native Americans to ensure their place on this continent to contemporary politicians giving tax breaks to the wealthy while cutting healthcare funding for the poor, we see the tradeoff of love over and over again."

"Our compassion atrophies in the dog-eat-dog version of reality that we’ve created in the United States. It shrinks down to a peanut-sized organ capable of loving only one’s family, or dog, or the people who look, act, and think just like one’s self."

"The withered hearts sold piecemeal for wealth and power have lost the capacity to love boldly and widely, in broad and inclusive ways that extend to their fellow citizens or even to the whole of humanity worldwide."

When our souls cry out in shakes and rages from lack of love, we lash out to the extent our power permits. The poor hurt each other. The rich pass policies that hurt millions of people. Some pull guns on one another; politicians drop bombs on foreign countries.
We start fights in our families; our military wages war overseas. A child steals candy from a younger sibling; the wealthy steal trillions from the rest of us."

The neighbor refuses to help us when we’re sick; our Congresspersons cut funding for healthcare. Rich, poor, powerful and marginalized, wherever this deficiency of love arises, cruelty and suffering abound. Beneath the screaming torrent of other rationales and excuses are broken human beings shuddering in the grips of a multi-generational deficiency that is slowly – or rapidly – killing us, our nation, and the earth."

Hundreds of campaigns are launched on all sides of the political spectrum to “save the world” or the whales or the workers or the economy or family values or civil rights . . . everything! Most of them deliver a right-left punch to the other side that essentially shouts, “you bad, evil people, stop that at once!” Every time we attack each other in such a manner, our mineral deficiency drops lower on both sides of the conflict."

Perhaps people in the social justice movements don’t notice. The feelings of solidarity that can arise within movements can mask the ways hate for one’s opposition depletes the soul. More obvious is the effect within the opposition.

Sensing hate from the movement, their hearts close off, the deficiency of love drops further, and they lash out violently, entrenching in defense of their actions. It’s ironic, because the very behaviors or policies the movement objects to came about because the people involved in the injustice sought to satisfy their aching craving for love through greed, domination, control, power, violence, or discrimination."

By attacking them, we’re sowing the seeds for more of the same vicious cycle.

Vilifying people often fails to address the root of the problem, the deep hurts and wounds, fears and insecurities that people carry. There are thousands of wounded people in positions of power, millions waiting in the wings to take their places, and a whole nation raging and moaning for love, hurting one another in large and small ways."

So, I propose a radical approach: that we bring love into our movements for change, adopting Dr. King’s principle to be against injustice, not against people.

We cannot condone destructive and harmful behaviors and policies. However, we can learn to see each other with the eyes of love, to look at our fellow human beings with compassion and sorrow over such actions, rather than hate and fury.

In so doing, we can begin to replenish that mineral deficiency that is killing our nation’s soul, not to mention the bodies of our brothers and sisters, and the vitality of the planet."

We can recognize the underlying void in the cells and marrow of people that causes them to behave in such destructive ways. We can begin to satisfy the deep craving for respect and understanding – which are often ways that love is expressed in public settings."

I believe we will go further in our efforts toward justice if we break down the walls of hate and fear that have arisen between factions of our populace. I think bringing groups who currently stand opposed to one another into face-to-face encounters is as radically transformational as protests, boycotts, and strikes."

Creating situations where people must listen to each other’s viewpoints, hear each other’s stories, and deal with real humans, not just statistics, confrontational can be as positively as direct action. "

And, I have faith that approaching one another with basic love and respect even in the midst of opposing unjust policies and practices allows the humanity that exists in all of us to resurface."


Examples are demonstrated  every day in my spiritual heart centered consultations ~ particular with combat veterans with PTSD where their hearts were frozen in pain and anger but after their hearts were freed through gratefulness and love ~ they have entered a place of joy, love and soul consciousness and they begin to celebrate verus deprivate every day as they heal themselves.

As Rivera states ~  "Radical love  helps those who have made devil’s bargains to reclaim pieces of their hearts. It prevents us from making the same mistake and cutting off a part of our broad love for humanity in order to hate our opposition.

I think this approach is complementary to a movement’s use of firm, strategic, nonviolent action to stop injustice and harm.

In addition, it offers us a powerful path toward healing in a deep and profound way .

Our other option – the one we’ve been using – is to hate each other more, attack more, despise one another in increasing cycles of animosity and division. We are locked in modes of trying to overpower our “enemies,” prove them wrong and punish them for their bad ways of thinking. In response, they attack us back, defend their positions, and try to dominate us in response.

We have dug ourselves into a deep and dangerous hole that has led to horrific suffering, cruelty, and pain. I’d like to climb out of that hole. If that requires a radical act of love against impossible odds, I’m willing to do it..

How about you?"


Author/Activist Rivera Sun, syndicated by Peace Voice, is the author of The Dandelion Insurrection and other books, and cohosts Love (and Revolution) Radio. This article originally appeared on Transcend Media Service (TMS) on 22 May 2017.

I heard Rivera's call and this post is my response to her sharing ~ for the first rule of holes is to stop digging and the second rule is to start celebrating and loving ~ thus becoming a functioning part of a deeper reality is radically loving and becoming part of a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness which is in essence becoming part of God ~ an evolutionary process with which we all participate as co-creators.

Only a cloud cover and some luck and wiser heads kept Kyoto from being the primary A bomb target in August, 1945 ~ and  in this time of great uncertainty, we must seek voices of humility, altruism and compassion ~ for we are only one bomb from oblivion as we learn from the A bombs that we exploded in Japan in 1945  ~

Peter Kuznick (co-author with Oliver Stone of The Untold History of the Unites States) discusses with Paul Fay that the Atomic bombs did not end the war with Japan ~ it was really a bully threat to the Soviet Union that the US would dominate the post-war world.  Youtube,15 minutes ~

In this time of uncertainty, I look to the wise words from my mentor from beyond time and space, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin ~ who offered words to ponder and inspire our actions ~

  • Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.
  • Above all trust in the slow work of God. Only God could say what this new spirit gradually forming within you will be. Give our Lord the benefit of believing that His hand is leading you, and accept the anxiety of feeling yourself in suspense and incomplete
  • We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience
  • Love is the most powerful and still most unknown energy in the world.
  • Remain true to yourself, but move ever upward toward greater consciousness and greater love! At the summit you will find yourselves united with all those who, from every direction, have made the same ascent. For everything that rises must converge
  • 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 by what is deepest in themselves.

We can start right now ~ we can simply begin by opening our hearts through gratefulness and thank atleast 5 persons a day for being a gift in our life,  we can begin by living our lives in celebration versus deprivation  and begin to see through different eyes as well as claim our part in a Unified Field ~ whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

I am done with great things and big things, great institutions and big success, and I am for those tiny, invisible molecular moral forces that work from individual to individual, creeping through the crannies of the world like so many rootlets, or like the capillary oozing of water, yet which if you give them time, will rend the hardest monuments of man's pride.”
