Mayan Prophecies and Calender

Lord Jose Arguelles
Jose Arguelles gained notoriety for his role in the Harmonic Convergence on August 17, 1987 and his mystical book about the Maya calendar, The Mayan Factor: Path Beyond Technology. Born of Mexican-American descent, the Mayan calendar became a childhood passion for him in the 1950s during the decade in which astronomers began to realize that Native Americans practiced a sophisticated astronomy. After more than 30 years of research, he is known as one of the world's foremost authorities of the Mayan calendar.
The overwhelming evidence of Mayan prophecy in the last decade of the millennia supports the accuracy of the calendar and the Arguelles' interpretation of the Dreamspell and Time Shift of July 26, 1992. After perceiving the final sequencing of the Mayan calendar in 1987, the Time Shift in 1992 was an adjustment of the annual calendar's beginning to July 26, so that the Dreamspell New Year falls on that date each year.
Since the Maya codices were destroyed during the European Conquest, the tables of dates and interpretations of codes were mostly destroyed. During the 500 years since the Conquest, Mayan tribes have adopted various new year dates and interpretations. In 1992, the University of Guatemala identified the July 26 date based on an eclipse of July 11, 1991 and the Dresden Codex. Arguelles interpreted that date as the new beginning of the solar year.

In 755 AD, Mayan Priests prophesied that the total solar eclipse of July 11, 1991 would herald two life altering events for humankind - Cosmic Awareness and Earth Changes. Shortly after 1:00 PM, on July 11, 1991, the prophecy seemingly began to unfold.
Mount Popocatepetl and the UFO's
Beneath the eclipse that the Maya had labeled 'The Sixth Sun', a silvery disc shaped object hovered silently above Mexico City. 17 people, unknown to each other, in different locations of Mexico City, videotaped the UFO. This sighting became the earliest most documented mass sightings in history. For months, teams of international researchers from the U.S., Mexico, and Japan followed a wave of UFO activity that connected with the volcano, Mount Popocatepetl. Sightings still continue.

Based on the July, 1991 eclipse, Jose identified the July 26, 1992, Time Shift. Using a day-by-day count, Euro-American astronomers could finally synchronize their calendars with the Maya Priests. The visitors from the sky that Jose called the Galactic Maya in The Mayan Factor, had perhaps made good on their promise to return on that date.
These are all just theories.
In 2009, a History Channel presentation of "Decoding the Past", discussed the last page of the Dresden Codex. If you understand the metaphors, you will get the messages.
"The last page of the Dresden Codex shows the destruction of the world via water. Waves gush from the mouth of a celestial dragon. More flood waters pour from sun and moon symbols on the underside of the monster's body. An aged goddess also pours flood water onto the Earth. At the bottom of the picture crouches a ruler of the underworld. Above the picture, about half of the 15 glyphs have been destroyed, but a few of the remaining ones consistently refer to "Black Earth" or "Black on High"

Shambala,The Mystical Kingdom of God on Earth!

In Tibetan Buddhist tradition, Shambhala (or Shambala) is a mystical kingdom hidden somewhere beyond the snow peaks of the Himalayas. It is mentioned in various ancient texts including the Kalachakra and the ancient texts of the Zhang Zhung culture which pre-dated Tibetan Buddhism in western Tibet. The Bon scriptures speak of a closely-related land called Olmolungring.
Shambhala in the Buddhist Kalachakra Teachings
Kalachakra Mandala
The Wheel of Time
Buddha prophecized that all who received the Kalachakra empowerment would take rebirth in its mandala of consciousness.
The Kingdom of Shambhala takes a central place in the Kalachakra teachings. Shambhala (Tib. bde 'byung) is a Sanskrit term meaning place of peace/tranquility/happiness. Shakyamuni Buddha is said to have taught the Kalachakra tantra on request of King Suchandra, also the teachings are said to be preserved there. Shambhala is said to be a society where all the inhabitants are enlightened, centered around a capital city called Kalapa. War and injustice are said to be unknown there, and it is said to be peopled by beautiful women and men dwelling in magnificent abodes.
Shambhala is ruled over by the Kulika or Kalki (Tib. Ridgen) King, a benevolent monarch who upholds the integrity of the Kalachakra tantra. Religious scholars believe that this figure developed out of the myth of the Hindu conqueror Kalki, a similar personage. The Kalachakra prophesizes that when the world declines into war and greed, and all is lost, the twenty fifty Kalika king will emerge from Shambhala with a huge army to vanquish the corrupt world rulers and usher in a worldwide Golden Age. Some scholars put this date at 2424 AD.
As with many concepts in Vajrayana Buddhism, the idea of Shambhala is said to have an 'outer,' 'inner,' and 'secret' meaning. The outer meaning understands Shambhala to exist as a physical place, although only individuals with the appropriate karma can reach it and experience it as such. There are various ideas about where this society is located, but it is often placed in central Asia, north of Tibet. The inner and secret meanings refer to more subtle understandings of what Shambhala represents, and are generally passed on orally.
Western Fascination with Shambhala
During the nineteenth century, Theosophical Society founder H.P. Blavatsky alluded to the Shambhala myth, giving it currency for Western occult enthusiasts. Later esoteric writers further emphasized and elaborated on the concept of a hidden land inhabited by a hidden mystic brotherhood whose members labor for the good of humanity.
The myths of Shambhala were part of the inspiration for the tale of Shangri-La told in the popular book Lost Horizon, and thus some people even refer to Shambhala improperly as if it were a Shangri-La. Shambhala's location and nature remains a subject of much dispute, and several traditions have arisen as to where it is, or will be, including those that emphasize it as a non-physical realm that one can approach only through the mind.
Ancient Zhang Zhung texts identify Shambhala with the Sutlej Valley in Himachal Pradesh. Mongolians identify Shambala with certain valleys of southern Siberia. Beginning in the 1960s, various occult writers have sought to explain the evil of Nazism by suggesting Adolf Hitler tapped into the malevolent forces of Shambhala when he sent Ahnenerbe researchers to Tibet to measure Tibetan skulls as part of his master race justifications.Also known that Josef Stalin organized an expedition to find Shambala.
Western Esoteric Traditions
Madame Blavatsky, who claimed to be in contact with a Great White Lodge of Himalayan Adepts, mentions Shambhala in several places without giving it especially great emphasis. (The Mahatmas, we are told, are also active around Shigatse and Luxor.) Blavatsky's Shambhala, like the headquarters of the Great White Lodge, is a physical location on our earth, albeit one which can only be penetrated by a worthy aspirant.
Later esoteric writers like Alice Bailey (the Arcane School) and the Roerichs (Agni Yoga) do emphasize Shambhala. Bailey transformed it into a kind of extradimensional or spiritual reality. The Roerichs see its existence as both spiritual and physical.
Related "hidden land" speculations surrounding the underground kingdom of Agartha led some early twentieth-century occultists to view Shambhala as a source of rather negative manipulation by an evil (or amoral) conspiracy. Nevertheless, the predominant theme is one of light and hope, as evidenced by James Redfield's and Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's respective books by that name.
In Neo-Nazi mysticism, Shambhala is sometimes supposed to be the place to which Adolf Hitler fled after the fall of the Third Reich. Hitler was known to have an interest in the myth of Shambhala and in "eastern mysticism" generally, from which he appropriated the swastika.
Apu Putucusi is a sacred city located adjacent to Machi Piccu and is allegedly linked to Shambhala.

Quan Yin,Godess of Compassion,Seated on the Karmic Board

Kwan Yin
Goddess of the Compassion and Mercy
For centuries, Kuan Yin has epitomized the great ideal of Mahayana Buddhism in her role as "bodhisattva (Chinese "p'u-sa)--literally "a being of Bodhi, or enlightenment," who is destined to become a Buddha but has foregone the bliss of Nirvana with a vow to save all children of God.
Quan Yin carries the Goddess and Divine Mother aspect of Buddhism. The same Goddess and Divine energy carried by the Virgin Mary in Christianity. In the Egyptian mysteries it is carried by Isis. In Hinduism it is carried by Shakti, wife of Vishnu, by Parvarti, wife of Shiva, by Radha, wife of Krishna, and by Sita, wife of Rama.
Quan Yin's name is a translation of the Sanskrit name of her chief progenitor which is Avalokitesvara, also known as Avalokita. In its proper form it is Kuanshih Yin, which means "She who harkens to the cries of the world."
In Korea, Japan, and China she is called Quan Yin. She is a celestial bodhisattva and an ascended master. One of her jobs in the celestial spheres is to sit on the board of the Lord of Karma.
Buddhist mythology tells of Avalokitesvara's being born from a ray of light that sprang from Amitabha Buddha's right eye. He immediately said, "Om Mane Padme Hum". This is one of the mantras by which he can be invoked in Buddhist tradition.
Avalokitesvara came to be known by most Tibetans as Buddha's earthly representation and as chief guardian of the dharma (doctrine) until the advent of Maitreya Buddha.
Avalokitesvara and Quan Yin are embodiments of compassion.
She is roughly equivalent to Green Tara in Tibetan Buddhism.
In Tibetan Buddhism Quan Yin is seen in her male form as Avalokitesvara. Some feel that the current Dali Lama is an incarnation of Avalokitesvara. It is thought that the female form of Avalokitesvara, Quan Yin, originated in the twelfth or thirteenth century in both China and Japan.
The Saddharma Pundarika Sutra affirms that Avalokitesvara had 357 incarnations.
Quan Yin is one of the most universally beloved of deities in the Buddhist tradition. Also known as Kuan Yin, Quan'Am (Vietnam), Kannon (Japan), and Kanin (Bali), She is the embodiment of compassionate loving kindness. As the Bodhisattva of Compassion, She hears the cries of all beings. Quan Yin enjoys a strong resonance with the Christian Mary, the Mother of Jesus, and the Tibetan goddess Tara.
In many images She is depicted carrying the pearls of illumination. Often Quan Yin is shown pouring a stream of healing water, the "Water of Life," from a small vase. With this water devotees and all living things are blessed with physical and spiritual peace. She holds a sheaf of ripe rice or a bowl of rice seed as a metaphor for fertility and sustenance. The dragon, an ancient symbol for high spirituality, wisdom, strength, and divine powers of transformation, is a common motif found in combination with the Goddess of Mercy.
Sometimes Kuan Yin is represented as a many armed figure, with each hand either containing a different cosmic symbol or expressing a specific ritual position, or mudra. This characterizes the Goddess as the source and sustenance of all things. Her cupped hands often form the Yoni Mudra, symbolizing the womb as the door for entry to this world through the universal female principle.
Quan Yin, as a true Enlightened One, or Bodhisattva, vowed to remain in the earthly realms and not enter the heavenly worlds until all other living things have completed their own enlightenment and thus become liberated from the pain-filled cycle of birth, death, and rebirth.
There are numerous legends that recount the miracles which Quan Yin performs to help those who call on Her. Like Artemis, She is a virgin Goddess who protects women, offers them a religious life as an alternative to marriage, and grants children to those who desire them.
The Goddess of Mercy is unique among the heavenly hierarchy in that She is so utterly free from pride or vengefulness that She remains reluctant to punish even those to whom a severe lesson might be appropriate. Individuals who could be sentenced to dreadful penance in other systems can attain rebirth and renewal by simply calling upon Her graces with utter and absolute sincerity. It is said that, even for one kneeling beneath the executioner's sword already raised to strike, a single heartfelt cry to Bodhisattva Quan Yin will cause the blade to fall shattered to the ground.
The many stories and anecdotes featuring this Goddess serve to convey the idea of an enlightened being who embodies the attributes of an all pervasive, all consuming, unwavering loving compassion and who is accessible to everyone. Quan Yin counsels us by Her actions to cultivate within ourselves those particular refined qualities that all beings are said to naturally possess in some vestigial form.
Contemplating the Goddess of Mercy involves little dogma or ritual. The simplicity of this gentle being and Her standards tends to lead Her devotees towards becoming more compassionate and loving themselves. A deep sense of service to all fellow beings naturally follows any devotion to the Goddess.
The name Kuan Shih Yin, as she is often called, means literally "the one who regards, looks on, or hears the sounds of the world." According to legend, Kuan Yin was about to enter heaven but paused on the threshold as the cries of the world reached her ears.
Scholars believe that the Buddhist monk and translator Kumarajiva was the first to refer to the female form of Kuan Yin in his Chinese translation of the Lotus Sutra in 406 A.D. Of the thirty-three appearances of the bodhisattva referred to in his translation, seven are female. (Devoted Chinese and Japanese Buddhists have since come to associate the number thirty-three with Kuan Yin.)
Although Kuan Yin was still being portrayed as a male as late as the tenth century, with the introduction of Tantric Buddhism into China in the eighth century during the T'ang dynasty, the image of the celestial bodhisattva as a beautiful white-robed goddess was predominant and the devotional cult surrounding her became increasingly popular. By the ninth century there was a statue of Kuan Yin in every Buddhist monastery in China.
Despite the controversy over the origins of Kuan Yin as a feminine being, the depiction of a bodhisattva as both 'god' and 'goddess' is not inconsistent with Buddhist doctrine. The scriptures explain that a bodhisattva has the power to embody in any form--male, female, child, even animal depending on the type of being he is seeking to save. As the Lotus Sutra relates, the bodhisattva Kuan Shih Yin, "by resort to a variety of shapes, travels in the world, conveying the beings to salvation."
The twelfth-century legend of the Buddhist saint Miao Shan, the Chinese princess who lived in about 700 B.C. and is widely believed to have been Kuan Yin, reinforced the image of the bodhisattva as a female. During the twelfth century Buddhist monks settled on P'u-t'o Shan--the sacred island-mountain in the Chusan Archipelago off the coast of Chekiang where Miao Shan is said to have lived for nine years, healing and saving sailors from shipwreck--and devotion to Kuan Yin spread throughout northern China.
This picturesque island became the chief center of worship of the compassionate Saviouress; crowds of pilgrims would journey from the remotest places in China and even from Manchuria, Mongolia and Tibet to attend stately services there. At one time there were more than a hundred temples on the island and over one thousand monks. The lore surrounding P'u-t'o island recounts numerous appearances and miracles performed by Kuan Yin, who, it is believed, reveals herself to the faithful in a certain cave on the island.
In the Pure Land sect of Buddhism, Kuan Yin forms part of a ruling triad that is often depicted in temples and is a popular theme in Buddhist art. In the center is the Buddha of Boundless Light, Amitabha (Chinese, A-mi-t'o Fo; Japanese, Amida). To his right is the bodhisattva of strength or power, Mahasthamaprapta, and to his left is Kuan Yin, personifying his endless mercy.
In Buddhist theology Kuan Yin is sometimes depicted as the captain of the "Bark of Salvation," guiding souls to Amitabha's Western Paradise, or Pure Land--the land of bliss where souls may be reborn to receive continued instruction toward the goal of enlightenment and perfection. The journey to Pure Land is frequently represented in woodcuts showing boats full of Amitabha's followers under Kuan Yin's captainship.
Amitabha, a beloved figure in the eyes of Buddhists desiring to be reborn in his Western Paradise and to obtain freedom from the wheel of rebirth, is said to be, in a mystical or spiritual sense, the father of Kuan Yin. Legends of the Mahayana School recount that Avalokitesvara was 'born' from a ray of white light which Amitabha emitted from his right eye as he was lost in ecstasy.
Thus Avalokitesvara, or Kuan Yin, is regarded as the "reflex" of Amitabha'a further emanation or embodiment of "maha karuna (great compassion), the quality which Amitabha himself embodies in the highest sense. Many figures of Kuan Yin can be identified by the presence of a small image of Amitabha in her crown. It is believed that as the merciful redemptress Kuan Yin expresses Amitabha's compassion in a more direct and personal way and prayers to her are answered more quickly.
The iconography of Kuan Yin depicts her in many forms, each one revealing a unique aspect of her merciful presence. As the sublime Goddess of Mercy whose beauty, grace and compassion have come to represent the ideal of womanhood in the East, she is frequently portrayed as a slender woman in flowing white robes who carries in her left hand a white lotus, symbol of purity. Ornaments may adorn her form, symbolizing her attainment as a bodhisattva, or she may be pictured without them as a sign of her great virtue.
Kuan Yin's presence is widespread through her images as the "bestower of children" which are found in homes and temples. A great white veil covers her entire form and she may be seated on a lotus. She is often portrayed with a child in her arms, near her feet, or on her knees, or with several children about her. In this role, she is also referred to as the "white-robed honored one." Sometimes to her right and left are her two attendants, Shan-tsíai Tung-tsi, the "young man of excellent capacities," and Lung-wang Nu, the "daughter of the Dragon-king."
Kuan Yin is also known as patron bodhisattva of P'u-t'o Shan, mistress of the Southern Sea and patroness of fishermen. As such she is shown crossing the sea seated or standing on a lotus or with her feet on the head of a dragon.
Like Avalokitesvara she is also depicted with a thousand arms and varying numbers of eyes, hands and heads, sometimes with an eye in the palm of each hand, and is commonly called "the thousand-arms, thousand-eyes" bodhisattva. In this form she represents the omnipresent mother, looking in all directions simultaneously, sensing the afflictions of humanity and extending her many arms to alleviate them with infinite expressions of her mercy.
Symbols characteristically associated with Kuan Yin are a willow branch, with which she sprinkles the divine nectar of life; a precious vase symbolizing the nectar of compassion and wisdom, the hallmarks of a bodhisattva; a dove, representing fecundity; a book or scroll of prayers which she holds in her hand, representing the dharma (teaching) of the Buddha or the sutra (Buddhist text) which Miao Shan is said to have constantly recited; and a rosary adorning her neck with which she calls upon the Buddha's for succor.
Images of Avalokitesvara often show him holding a rosary; descriptions of his birth say he was born with a white crystal rosary in his right hand and a white lotus in his left. It is taught that the beads represent all living beings and the turning of the beads symbolizes that Avalokitesvara is leading them out of their state of misery and repeated rounds of rebirth into nirvana.
Today Kuan Yin is worshipped by Taoists as well as Mahayana Buddhists--especially in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and once again in her homeland of China, where the practice of Buddhism had been suppressed by the Communists during the Cultural Revolution (1966-69). She is the protectress of women, sailors, merchants, craftsmen, and those under criminal prosecution, and is invoked particularly by those desiring progeny. Beloved as a mother figure and divine mediatrix who is very close to the daily affairs of her devotees, Kuan Yin's role as Buddhist Madonna has been compared to that of Mary the mother of Jesus in the West.
It is in truth the same soul.

New Earth:A New People

A New Earth:
And they shall gather as the constellations of stars of the night sky — because they shall truly be as bright as stars upon the face of this Earth. And the faces of this New People shall shine like the Sun —
because they shall truly be the Light of the Golden Orb shining within the aethers of this Earth. And their voices shall sound as gently as leaves in the forest moved by the breeze and as mighty as the roaring thunder awakening all to life — because theirs shall be the power to sing songs of joy
and to unlock the sealed mysteries of Life.
— From an ancient book of prophesy describing the coming of the Sons of Light at the start of the Sixth Race Consciousness.
At the appointed time, two of the Shining Ones took me to a place where the rotation of the æthers of the planet intersect, at a certain angle, with certain rays of Light emanating from the Golden Orb in the sky. There was a great stillness in this place and — somehow I knew it too — there, time was also still. Carefully guarded was this place! From it one could see what was… what is… and what shall be.
Yet terrible is the vista that this place offers to the beholder because both the heights of Glory and the depths of Darkness can there be seen! But I had been guided there just to see and to remember what is to start within the span of the present generation. And here is what I saw:
The New People
Among the multitudes of this Earth there were but two peoples: those whose face was made of the Earth and those whose face was made of the Sun.
Of those whose face was made of the Earth… what can be said? Just thinking of them makes my heart weep. They were asleep, though they knew it not, and in their sleep-like waking they dreamed dreadful things: dreams of fear, loneliness and pain; dreams of conflict, subjugation and control; dreams of ignorance, search and want; dreams of disease, despair and death… the dreams of that which cannot truly be when one is awake to Life!
Of those whose face was made of the Sun… this is the foretelling that I am here to remember and share with you so that you too may remember that this is the reason you and I are now on this Earth.
Those whose face was made of the Sun were truly a new people on this Earth… a new creation… a newborn never seen before. They were like the flowering plants of a new species appearing for the
A New People : A New Earth
First time to come from the sky. Yet they were not alien to this Earth at all. They were that part of Earth that had remembered to dream of the Sun, the Stars and Source Itself. They were that part of Earth that had dared to dream the undreamable to remember that they were the Light of Source Itself.
Truly, they were the Light of Source because at the center of their existence Source and they were One — upon this sole Directive Principle they had built their lives. They were Light itself because they had surrendered to Light… which is but Life… which is but Source. They were Light itself because their soul’s eye, their mind’s eye and their earthy eyes were now as one, and with these they only saw Light, which is but the work of Source. Thus, their face was the shining revelation of that Omnipresent Truth which with their eyes they saw anew wherever they directed their attention.
Yet, they had not always been a revelation of this Light. For a long span of time, they had covered their countenance with Earth to be nourished by it, to breathe of it, and to become of it. And they did this so well that eventually they forgot the Light they truly were. But the Golden Orb deserted them not and with its rays it slowly warmed in their hearts the memory of their unending fact: Light they were… Light they are… Light they will forever be.
Thus, one by one they remembered the fact and began to come together as constellations of stars gathered by their complementary hues of Light. And with their first meeting, the first ray of dawn shone upon this Earth. Darkness was thus defeated by that single ray of Light. But the Earth and those whose faces were still of Earth were left scarred and thirsty and hungry for the Light after their long and lonely fast. Those whose face was made of the Sun had thus a long and arduous task.
And this is the part of the foretelling that you must remember, reader of these lines — how we came together as constellations of stars and labored to make the Earth a Star. And I speak of this as past because it truly has already passed where all is seen as One. But for you and me, it is still a thing yet to pass. Thus, awaken and remember, reader of these lines, because to make a star we are called to act!
It was at this point of my journey to the Stillness that one of the Shining Ones broke her silence and said to me: “Behold and remember, Maker of Stars. The coming together of the awakened Sons of Light to form on Earth constellations of stars is central to your appointed task. Remember all they brought, all they planned and all what they spoke. The hour has arrived for the work to start.”
The Coming of the Sons of Light
Upon awakening, the Sons of Light now carried with them solely two things: “the Single Eye” and a radiant countenance. Their Single Eye was that aligned oneness of their former sets of eyes: their soul’s eye, their mind’s eye and their earthy eyes. And through this Single Eye they only saw the Presence of the Source of Life in all. As for their radiant countenance, it was but the result of the flow of the Living Light of Source through their now Single Eye making all things whole.
But, how they came to be like this — a piece of Sun and Life and Source — is the most marvelous of things ever to be remembered of this lonely Earth by those who make the vastness of the galaxies of unending Lights. It was not search… it was not want… it was not mind. It was… surrendering… surrendering to That which ever is… surrendering to That which is revealed in the heart.
Should I have known it was just this! How much pain, how much longing, how much search here and there I would have saved! Surrendering to That which ever IS!
This is the greatest magic formula of all… the very ambrosia of the Gods… the elixir of unending Life… the key to the Sacred Mystery of Life… and it is found in the heart of everyone of us!A New People :
A New Earth
As they surrendered to Light so did their earthy face surrender the hold upon their face of Light. It was this same surrendering that brought them together as constellations of stars so that Earth became what was Sky. And knowing and belonging and a mighty purpose took then possession of their minds. It was so that the radiance of their faces shone like rivers of unearthly Light creating upon Earth those patterns already written in the heavenly constellations of stars.
The long and tiring wearing of the earthy face had made of them the wiser on the things of earthy life. And it was thus that with their hearts and minds effortlessly they knew the creations needed by the starving ones. And to labor they proceeded, knowing not tiredness nor want. And it was thus that by their work the face of Earth was made anew to reveal its long-appointed path among the mighty constellations of stars who for long had waited for this miracle to pass.
Also as constellations of stars the Sons of Light spoke their task. And mighty was their voice because no longer was it just an earthy voice! An ætherial symphony of joy it was, matching the very symphony of the stars and directing thus the many builders unseen by human eyes but who in their weaving make all things appear to earthy eyes. And in this symphony of Sounds, Light and Life it was Source that sounded through their souls and minds and words. What else could it be when their souls and minds and words were now at-one with Source!
Their work of mind and word and deed looked so effortless in what I saw from that point of stillness where space and time are not! But it was all made so by surrendering to Light and Life… by surrendering to Source.
And how would their labors end upon the Earth made a Star, I could not see it, but the name given to this nascent Age suffices to reveal that no longer ending is the destiny of the Sons of Light. And as for the name of this Age that is to start, my memory has been wisely blinded by the Shining Ones as time and only time is wise enough to unveil its magic might. And with this ends the foretelling of what is to pass starting with the present generation of which you and I are part.
It may seem, reader of these lines, that I have given you not much of what I saw. Yet haste not to set aside this remembering offered by the grace of the Shining Ones. Along these lines of text a mighty pattern has been written… the blueprint of that which is to be and is to start before you and I are called back to discard our earthy form once more. Let your heart see along these lines that which mind in its arrogance may deem a magic tale.
The Key to the Mystery of Life has here been described. But only those whose heart is free to see will know of the veil that has been lifted here.
Hearken and remember!

Pistis Sophia,Chapter 33

Kimberley Reed,May 29, 2010 at 10:24pm
Subject: Pistis Sophia translated by G. S. R. Mead
It came to pass then, when Jesus had spoken
these words unto his disciples, that he said unto them: "This is the song of praise which Pistis Sophia uttered in her first repentance, repenting of her sin, and reciting all which had befallen her. Now, therefore: 'Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.'"Mary again came forward and said: "My Lord, my indweller of light hath ears, and I hear with my light-power, and thy spirit which is with me, hath sobered me. Hearken then that I may speak concerning the repentance which Pistis Sophia hath uttered, speaking of |53. her sin and all that befell her. Thy light-power hath prophesied thereof aforetime through the prophet David in the sixty-eighth Psalm:
Mary interpreteth the first repentance from Psalm lxviii"'1. Save me, O God, for the waters are come in even unto my soul.
"'2. I sank, or am submerged, in the slime of the abyss, and power was not. I have gone-down into the depths of the sea; a tempest hath submerged me.
"'3. I have kept on crying; my throat is gone, my eyes faded, waiting patiently for God.
"'4. They who hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of my head; mighty are my foes, who violently pursued me. They required of me that which I took not from them.
"'5. God, thou hast known my foolishness, and my faults are not hid from thee.
"'6. Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord, Lord of powers, be ashamed for my sake; let not those who seek thee be ashamed for my sake, O Lord, God of Israel, God of powers.
"'7. For thy sake have I endured shame; shame hath covered my face.
"'8. I am become a stranger to my brethren, a stranger unto the sons of my mother.
"'9. For the zeal of thy house hath consumed me; the revilings of them that revile thee have fallen upon me.
"'10. I bowed my soul with fasting, and it was turned to my reproach.
"'11. I put on sackcloth; I became unto them a bye-word.
"'12. They who sit at the gates, chattered at me; and they who drink wine, harped about me.
"'13. But I prayed with my soul unto thee, |54. O Lord; the time of thy well-liking is [now], O God. In the fulness of thy grace give ear unto my salvation in truth.
"'14. Save me out of this slime, that I sink not therein; let me be saved from them that hate me, and from the deep of waters.
"'15. Let not a water-flood submerge me, let not the deep swallow me, let not a well close its mouth above me.
"'16. Hear me, O Lord, for thy grace is good; according to the fulness of thy compassion look down upon me.
"'17. Turn not thy face away from thy servant, for I am oppressed.
"'18. Hear me quickly, give heed to my soul and deliver it.
"'19. Save me because of my foes, for thou knowest my disgrace, my shame and my dishonour; all my oppressors are before thee.
"'20. My heart awaiteth disgrace and misery; I waited for him who should sorrow with me, but I could not come at him, and for him who should comfort me, and I found him not.
"'21. They gave me gall for my meat; and in my thirst they gave me vinegar to drink.
"'22. Let their table be unto them for a trap and for a snare and for a retribution and for a stumbling-block.
"'23. Mayest thou bend their backs at all time.
"'24. Pour out thy anger upon them, and let the wrath of thy anger lay hold upon them.
"'25. Let their encampment be desolate, let there be no dweller in their habitations.
"'26. For they persecuted him whom thou hast smitten, and added to the smart of their woundings.
"'27. They added iniquity to their iniquities; let them not come into |55. thy righteousness.
"'28. Let them be wiped out of the book of the living, and let them not be written in among the righteous.
"'29. I am a poor wretch who is heart-broken too; it is the salvation of thy face which hath taken me unto itself.
"'30. I will praise the name of God in the ode, and exalt it in the song of thanksgiving.
"'31. This shall please God better than a young bull which putteth forth horns and hoofs.
"'32. May the wretched see and make merry; seek ye God, that your souls may live.
"'33. For God hath heard the wretched and despiseth not the prisoners.
"'34. Let heaven and earth praise the Lord, the sea and all that is therein.
"'35. For God will save Zion, and the cities of Judæa will be built up, and they will dwell there and inherit it.
"'36. The seed of his servants shall possess it, and they who love his name shall dwell therein.'"

The God Vitamin,

Beloved masters, it is general knowledge that the sun conveys its life-giving force through its rays. In ancient times, the sun was mistakenly considered to be God and was given the name RA; however, an advanced group of wise beings began to worship the One God instead of a great variety of gods. It is also true that there would be no life on Earth without the electromagnetic radiation of the sun, for the solar system sun that you see in the sky supplies the life-giving heat and light necessary to sustain life on Earth.
However, what you do not see, and most are not aware of, is that there is a Central Sun above and beyond each visible sun that is of a much higher dimensional frequency, and therefore, it is not visible via any means available to humans at this time. This sun is the home of the God-parents of your Solar System. These great spheres of God Light are cool, comfortable and more glorious than you can ever imagine. For they are where all the magnificent, great shining facets of the Creator reside, and it is their duty to radiate the Primal Life Force Substance and/ or the full spectrum Metatronic Light out into all the solar systems and the planets therein, including the Earth. These wondrous offspring of the Creator were some of the first radiated forth from the heart center of the Supreme Creator, and they were deemed worthy to be overseers of universes, galaxies, star systems and planets without end. The same applies to all solar systems, galaxies and universes throughout Creation. This is a very complex process, and we will not delve deeper into the subject at this time. What we wish to express to you is that your sun supplies much more than the heat and light of which you are aware.
Up until the mid-1900's, people around the world labored out in the sun all day and did not wear sun screen or feel that the sun’s rays were harmful. They wore hats and some covered their arms, but it was necessary and not deemed to be detrimental to spend many hours in the sun. Gradually, the Ozone Layer has been affected by pollution and is not as thick as it was in the past, thereby allowing more ultraviolet radiation from the sun to reach the Earth and humankind. Since then, the harmful effects of the sun’s rays have been emphasized so strongly that most people have forgotten the many benefits derived from exposure to the sun. The advertising of sun screen products has been very effective, and most people will not go out into the sun without it, no matter how long they plan to stay out of doors. Remember, the sun’s rays are still safe and of great benefit during the early morning hours until 10:00 am and after 3:00 or 4:00 pm in the afternoon during the summer hours. At least fifteen minutes a day several times a week are sufficient to give you a Light bath from the beneficial rays of the sun. Also, the sun’s rays are not as strong in the winter, and exposure can be a little longer.
What we have given you is information about the importance of the sun for the well-being of the physical body; however, we wish also to emphasize that this phenomenon is representative of how far off center many of the concepts within the collective consciousness belief structure have become, and how these misconceptions are affecting humanity in a great variety of ways.
Remember, dear hearts, those of you who are firmly on the path and are capable of drawing forth the Adamantine Particles of Creator Light and then sharing them with the world via your loving intention will derive much more benefit from the sun, for you are now able to absorb the higher and even more powerful and beneficial Essence from the sun’s rays, which is called the full spectrum Metatronic Light. Vitamin D is only one of the many gifts that are supplied to humanity via the rays from your sun as well as from the Great Rays from our Father/Mother God.
Know this, beloveds, you are in the final stages of a specific unit of time, and you all have been subject to a unique system of rules. Total free will was deemed to be a great gift; however, it became a great burden as humanity sank into the broad spectrum of duality, which has resulted in great pain and suffering. There was a non-interference clause written in the rules, and the specified time for this particular phase of Creation had to be played out before our Father/Mother God could declare: “It is enough. It is time to intercede. There will be a Divine Dispensation for those who are striving to attain Self-mastery, and the spiritual Hierarchy and the Angelic Kingdom are authorized to give assistance in whatever way is appropriate within the framework of Cosmic Law.” The Law of Grace exists as the higher frequencies of Karmic Law and will, henceforth, apply to the emerging group of World Servers as well as the aspirants and disciples on the path of ascension.
As this particular era comes to a close, there will be a new system of rules and laws which will apply to all emerging Spiritual/Human Beings. A new expanded cycle of Creation is in progress, and all of you who are striving to attain a unified state consciousness will be designated as cocreators of the future. As a Ray of God Light, your Divine Mission is to expand the borders of God-consciousness. Your goal is to become a master of manifestation, drawing forth the Essence of Creation, activating it within your Sacred Heart and via specific thoughts from within your Sacred Mind, molding the God Substance into an endless variety of forms. Thus, you become a true extension of our Father/Mother God.
You, the wayshowers, are the hope of the future. You are laying the foundation for a new social order. It is vitally important that you walk the middle path. A Self-master does not take sides, neither for nor against the conflicts that are presently raging around the world. Your personal power is most effective when you stay centered within your Sacred Heart and you are guided by the wisdom of your Sacred Mind. Your stance should always be that of good will, and your platform should be for the greatest good of all.
As you actively seek en-Lighten-ment and strive to return to balance and harmony within, it is important that you become aware of certain karmic limitations which your Soul has accepted as a learning experience in this lifetime. There are specific limitations and conditions that cannot be changed, and the lesson is to accept them gracefully and to strive for excellence within the framework of the boundaries that have been imposed upon you, not as a punishment but as an opportunity to balance discordant energy and thought patterns. However, we wish to emphasize, this lifetime is unique for every Soul on Earth; and no matter what circumstances you were born into, there is an opportunity for greatness and a reservoir of knowledge and talents needed to attain Self-mastery. You were designed to be a master of manifestation, a cocreator with God-given abilities. The first step is realizing that you have programmed within your DNA Genius Potential and a broad spectrum of talents and abilities. You chose, before you incarnated, a set of circumstances with specific abilities which are more readily available than others. However, even though the full range of your gifts and talents is held in reserve, you have the ability to bring them to the fore so that you can begin to actualize, integrate and use them.
You must have access to the higher dimensional levels of the brain in order to make contact with your Soul-Self and the Beings of the higher realms. Your brain is composed of multiple levels of consciousness. The lower brain and the three lower chakras are the realm of humanity’s animal/human consciousness. It is mostly instinctive, drawing much of its information from the collective consciousness of the astral plane as well as from the Earth’s consciousness. Survival and the ego desire body are in control of the masses’ thoughts/desires and thus form the prevalent picture of reality. The focus is on the external, material world and on service to self.
As your consciousness moves into the mid-level brain activity, you begin the process of becoming a spiritual/human Being and your feeling nature gradually moves up to incorporate the heart and the throat chakra. A gradual awakening process begins as your Soul nudges you onto the path of awareness, and the journey of ascension begins. An aspirant on the path must traverse the astral plane and gain control of the emotional / astral body and the lower nature (the three lower chakras), which will open the pathway to the refined frequencies of cosmic truth via your Higher Self, guides, teachers and angelic helpers. Harmlessness in thought, word and deed with focused observation abilities are important traits of a Self-master. You must clear the mind of distorted, negative, defeating thoughts before you can become a transmitter of Light in the darkness.
It is important that you understand: As your frequency patterns (or Soul Song) become more refined, your attitudes and comprehension will attune to higher and higher levels of consciousness. Your Etheric Body will change as well and will respond to higher Divine energies. Service to self gradually evolves into a desire to fulfill your Divine Mission, and to undertake group service.
As an en-Lighten-ed Being, you begin to build a bridge of consciousness back into the higher realms of this universe. It is called the Antakarana in ancient, esoteric teachings and the Rainbow Bridge currently. In order to return to mastery, you must learn to use the three aspects of your mental nature: the brain – mind – Soul. You must also clear the distortions of the subconscious mind and attune the conscious mind to your Soul-Self so that the wisdom of your Soul and Higher Self can begin to flow throughout your four lower-bodily systems. Remember, every atom and all your physical Being has consciousness; they must be en-Lighten-ed and attuned to the higher frequency patterns of ascension. You are made of Divine Essence. You are a Spark/Fragment of the Supreme Creator. You have latent powers that must be developed. There is a great need for humanity to refresh its Spiritual memory and to develop the powers of a Master of Light.
The Antakarana is composed of sub-tributaries or streams of Light which will ultimately strengthen and magnify the connections between the many facets of Self and your God-Self / I AM Presence. These streams of Light have consciousness and they contain the intelligence of your multiple levels of Self which reside in the higher Realms. As we have told you, your subconscious mind is becoming conscious, and your conscious mind is opening up to the wisdom of your Superconscious mind which contains the mysteries of the universe.
Beloveds, we see the Light expanding and gaining strength in many places around the world. We also see your radiance and influence growing, and you are making a positive impact on more lives than ever before. You must remain heart-centered and soul-focused as the chaos and fear grow and spread throughout the planet. We have now joined forces and we are and ever will be invincible, for we are fulfilling a Divine mandate from our Father/Mother God. Eternal love, protection and blessings are yours, now and forever more. I AM Archangel Michael.

If you believe in Humanistic psychology then it is all right to express your emotions whenever and wherever you want, even if you attack and hurt people. If one has that philosophy then that person feels quite self-righteous in doing what they are doing. If someone is a fundamental Christian, then one feels justified in calling everyone who does not believe what they believe, being run by the devil. If you follow Carl Jung you must own your shadow which is illusion. If you are a Bahaviorist, then we have no free choice and we are all rats in a maze receiving positive or negative reinforcement, etc. People get stuck in philosophies, psychologies and lenses of all kinds and think they are truth. Even a Planetary Ascended Master will have to release many concepts as they evolve to a Solar, Galactic, Universal, Multi-universal and Cosmic level. Some people hold on to Spiritual teachings that were true 50 or 100 years ago but are not as true now because things evolve. So, be 100% confident in your truth but don’t be self-righteous in your truth, because all truth in this world is relative…
Beloved Presence of God/Brahma/Allah /Dharmakaya /THE I AM THAT I AM. We give You thanks for this holy moment. We look to You for direction. May we radiate Your light and be alert to hear only Your voice . We call upon Archangel Metatron, Master Hilarion and Lord Buddha for a swift resolution to the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. May your loving wisdom be manifest to the problem solvers and that it is applied. Read

Jupiter Opposes Saturn and Makemake By Nick Anthony Fiorenza,

Jupiter Opposes Saturn and Makemake
and Cojoins Uranus: May-June 2010
Movement and Expansion
In the midst of the forth and fifth Saturn-Uranus oppositions, Jupiter joins Uranus stimulating expansive movement of the radical changes already occurring. Jupiter takes a primary role in the 2008-2011 timeline starting in May of 2010 and continuing through March of 2011. Throughout this time, Jupiter opposes Saturn and Makemake; conjoins Uranus; and will square Pluto.
Excerpt from the May 14, 2010 Lunar Planner
Jupiter Image Credit: NASA
Massive Jupiter begins its several month opposition to Saturn and its several month conjunction with Uranus in this lunar cycle. Jupiter's prominent arrival into the few-year timeline of aspects involving Saturn, Makemake, Uranus and Pluto, brings a tremendous shift in this timeline. The Jupiter-Uranus synthesis will mobilize, magnify and expand upon the radical changes already occurring in our lives. Jupiter-Saturn oppositions are generally quite potent, especially if they occur within orb to Earth's Precessional Cross, which this one does (and especially with Jupiter conjoining Uranus at the same time). For example, there were three major New Madrid Earthquakes occurring between mid-December 1811 and early-February 1812 estimated to be 7.5 to 7.7 in magnitude, all with several major aftershocks. At the time, Saturn and Jupiter were in opposition, and within a critical orb to Earth's Precessional Cross. Saturn was exactly on the Gate of God (GEN) of the precessional cross on the December 16 quake (with a 7.0 aftershock); and Jupiter was exactly on the Gate of Man of the precessional cross at the time of the second two quakes of January 23 and February 7. This is not to say our current opposition will produce major seismicity, although quite possible. We can however expect a massive and unexpected turn of events that certainly can be of beneficent nature in the long run, even if not appearing so at the onset. Although not on Earth's precessional cross, the previous Jupiter-Saturn opposition in 1989 produced two major events: The Loma Prieta (San Francisco) Earthquake, which occurred on October 17, 1989 during the Saturn-Jupiter opposition. It was triggered by a Mercury-Jupiter-Saturn T-square. The Berlin Wall was opened in November of the same year, triggered by Venus (and Uranus) in primary aspect to the Jupiter-Saturn opposition.
Jupiter Opposite Saturn #1 May 22, 2010
Jupiter makes its first opposition to Saturn on May 22-23, 2010. The Jupiter-Saturn opposition will continue through March 28, 2011. During this time Jupiter also opposes Makemake, will conjoin Uranus, and will square Pluto. Jupiter's prominent aspects with these planets initiate a time of dynamic mobilization and expansion. The Moon triggers this first opposition on May 22 by conjoining Saturn.
Jupiter is exactly 2° from its conjunction with Uranus, which will occur on the Balsamic Moon of this lunar cycle. So due to the tight orb of all involved, we experience the Jupiter-Uranus conjunction in opposition to Saturn as one event, starting now and continuing through this entire lunar cycle--with Jupiter-Uranus opposite Moon-Saturn now. Saturn is also stationing to complete is retrograde, which occurs just after the Full Moon, adding another dynamic to the potency of this compounded event. The time leading into a Saturn station can feel like time is standing still.
In addition, this all occurs on Earth's Precessional Holy Cross, with Jupiter-Uranus on the vernal point and Saturn on the anti-vernal point. Of course the vernal axis is currently square to the galactic equatorial axis (the Gate of God 5° at sidereal Sag and the Gate of Man at 5° sidereal Gemini). The placement of the Jupiter-Uranus opposition to Saturn on the Holy Cross does two things. It greatly intensifies this conjunction / opposition; and it also creates a primary activation of Earth's Precessional Cross, which basically means it creates a primary stimulus in the current 270° transition that is occurring in Earth's ~25,000-year Precessional Cycle--in this greater transition that is presently occurring in our entire evolutionary cycle on Earth. This should herald a tremendous acceleration and mobilization of radical change on Earth and in our lives. The actual Jupiter-Uranus conjunction on the Balsamic Moon will be even more dynamic, which I will get to later in this Lunar Planner.
Jupiter's several month opposition to Saturn marks the mid-point of vision and realization in the current ~20-year Jupiter-Saturn (synodic) cycle that began on June 22, 2000. The actual (synodic) mid-point occurs in the midst of the opposition, which is not until February 23, 2011. However the theme of this major world cycle is now entering its climax.
The Jupiter-Saturn synod of June 22, 2000 occurred, very curiously, at the same location as this New Moon, in late sidereal Aries (within 0.5°). How's that for cosmic synchronicity? Thus it has a similar theme as this lunar cycle-- creative and inventive; but also volatile, quickly eruptive or explosive. Does this sound like our recent societal mode?
A Saturn-Jupiter synthesis, in general, effects areas of life such as economics, business, politics, law, social issues, education, philosophy and religion. Jupiter wants to expand and mobilize what Saturn has concretized and put into place, and conversely, Saturn wants to structure and conform Jupiter's grander expansive ideals. Jupiter and Saturn cycles play a principle role in our societal cycles of growth.
Saturn Direct May 30, 2010
Saturn returns direct from its retrograde on May 30. This marks the full engagement of the new 378-day Earth-Saturn synodic cycle that began on March 22, 2010. This is significant, not only due to the Jupiter-Uranus opposition to Saturn, but also because this new Earth-Saturn cycle theme is dramatically different than the previous cycle, which brought a significant shift in the Earth-Saturn spiral of synodic cycles--all explained in the March 15, 2010 Lunar Planner (for subscribers). Neptune begins its retrograde a day later, on May 31, 2010, just before the Disseminating Moon.
The New Mars-Saturn Synodic Cycle June 1, 2010
Mars and Saturn initiate a new 2-year synodic cycle on June 1, 2010 stimulating a new dynamic of responsible creative action. This synod occurs in early sidereal Virgo--also with a theme quite different that the previous Mars-Saturn cycle. The previous cycle began in May of 2008 and its synod occurred in mid sidereal Leo. The theme of this cycle, which was set by Alioth of Ursa Major and Thuban of Draco was presented in the May 5, 2008 Lunar Planner.
The theme of this cycle is defined by Theta of Bootes; Beta of Coma Berenices; Zeta Crateris; Zaniah of Virgo and Turais Carina of Argo Navis.
Theta Bootes, along with Iota and Xi for the finger tips of the upraised hand of Bootes warding off the manipulative and diversionary tactics of Benatnasch. Benatnasch, the tail of the Great Bear, mentioned above, is of the old totalitarian world powers. Bootes, the Virgin's consort and protector, stands over the Virgin giving birth, over the cusp of Virgo-Libra. He ensures that the Virgin is protected and removed from such manipulations, and has the proper environment to produce an unadulterated birth--to ensure souls are free to birth, evolve and grow in their highest potential. More about this can be found in the "Astronomical Truth of the Virgin."
Coma Berenices (Berenices' hair) is the halo or crown of the Virgin and embodies our spiritual essence and soul guidance. The North Galactic Pole (NGP) resides in Coma (5° sidereal Virgo), as does our Super Galactic Center (SGC) (~7° sidereal Virgo). The Mars Saturn synod occurs about 2° past the longitude of Super Galactic Center. This few degree location in sidereal Virgo might be considered as the high spiritual essence of the Virgin; It is of light, illumination, of spiritual integrity and of soul / source guidance and awareness. Beta Coma invites us to follow and live by our more embracing soul awareness and spiritual guidance.
Zaniah, Eta Virgo, is an ecliptical star, less than 2° north in ecliptical latitude. Zaniah inspires the "right use of will" directed by soul-level impulses and unadulterated by personality or egoic-level influences. Zaniah is also the Chinese "Left-hand Maintainer of Law" (Allen). Zaniah is of Virgin purity--being a clear vessel to know right action--also a feminine quality.
Nearby Eta Carina in Argo Navis
One of the Universe's most impressive stars, Eta Carinae, is one of the most massive stars in our Milky Way, over 100 times the mass of the Sun and about four million times brighter, making it the most luminous star known. Eta Carinae is highly unstable, and prone to violent outbursts, most notably the false supernova event in 1842. For just a few years, Eta Carinae became the second brightest star in the night sky and produced almost as much visible light as a supernova explosion (the usual death throes of a massive star), but it survived. Eta Carinae is also thought to have a hot companion that orbits around it in 5.54 years, in an elliptical orbit. Both stars have strong winds, which collide, leading to interesting phenomena.
Eta Carina is Lord of the Waves (the Akkadian Ea (Ia), the Sumerian Enki, chief god of the city Eridhu--he who warned Noah), generally is considered the foreteller of impending catastrophe, but also the instructor of the way through such evolutionary transitions.
In the southern heavens lies Turais Carina and Phi Velorum, both of Argo Navis, which lies along the galactic equator, and thus is more associated with our longer-term soul-level sojourn and our evolutionary course.
Turais (Aspidiske) of the Argo is a rather rare white supergiant star that shines with a luminosity of 4900 of our suns, with a radius estimated to be about 43 times that of our sun. "This Arabian name has led to some confusion regarding the nature of this star, even confused to be part of Puppis the stern of the Argo, but it lies along the gunwale in Carina, the hull of the Argo, under Velorum the sail." (Allen)
Phi Velorum and the adjoining Pulsar P 0950 reside exactly on the Galactic Equator in the Sail (Velorum) of the Argo. Pulsars in general are beacons for the soul, and in this case, inspiring our attunement to the evolutionary currents beyond our incarnational moment, those of the greater evolutionary process itself. P-0950 has a pulse rate of 1.436551 seconds, which is a frequency of 0.696111729 Hz. Raised a few octaves, this translates to an Alpha brain wave frequency of 11.1377...Hz; and this translates both to infrared and violet wavelengths in the light spectrum. Thus, this pulsar links energy currents occurring in the spiritual realm (crown chakra) with the very root / earth primordial response (Earth Chakra--about a foot below our feet). This pulsar reminds us that to receive our spiritual guidance we must be grounded--like any good antenna.
Galactic Turais and Phi Velorum puts ecliptical Zaniah's "right use of will" into a greater evolutionary context, one with cosmic ramifications that extend throughout spacetime. Our acts of will are not isolated, cut off and limited to the moment itself, but extend into the past-future time-stream of the soul influencing the continuous cosmic currents in soul's greater evolutionary journey in ways that are unseen in the action moment.
Turais asks us to extend our awareness into this time-stream, while Zaniah inspires clear action in the moment from soul's and nature's guiding influence. Thus each action moment is one punctual droplet of many composing a continuous time-stream that formulates the path or wave upon which soul travels. Turais invites us to recognize our actions extend into and influence not only the nature of our own lives, but also the lives of others, effecting the meandering currents in an ocean of being. They set up resonances in spacetime that define the nature of experiences yet to come for our selves and in the evolutionary journey of all involved.
This is not to be confused with attempting to be responsible for others or to define their experience--which is a miss-use of will. The responsibility is for our active and conscious participation from the clarity of our spiritual soul-level guidance expressed in action. Turais demands we act from the awareness of our greater evolutionary journey and adds a sense of "cosmic responsibility" for what is "put into motion" through Zaniah's "right use of will."
In contrast to the last Mars-Saturn cycle, which was more about learning responsibility about forceful action and manipulation of evolutionary affairs in the past (certainly coming out in the wash now), this cycle is more about the right use of will to establish a durative environment supportive of the evolutionary fulfillment of souls, protected from the manipulations of the totalitarian puppet masters (government and big business).
The Jupiter-Uranus Conjunction #1 & Earth's Precessional Cross
June 8, 2010
The time we've been waiting for occurs from Last Quarter Moon (June 4, 2010) through the Balsamic Moon June 8, 2010). The door opens where we are now swept into vast movement and expansion of radical and perhaps more unexpected change--continuing through the many months ahead. The Moon conjoins Jupiter and Uranus just after Last Quarter Moon, during the time of "initiating change" in the lunar cycle (on June 5-6). The Last Quarter Moon acts as a primary lunar trigger for the Jupiter Uranus conjunction. The Moon briefly conjoins Eris on June 7-8, the great disruptor; and the actual Jupiter Uranus conjunction occurs on June 8, just hours before the Balsamic Moon--which brings this lunar cycle to its completion and sets the seed that will spout into the next lunar cycle's theme
This first Jupiter-Uranus conjunction occurs on the Vernal Point of Earth's Precessional Holy Cross and also creates a Grand Square with Saturn, Ceres and Juno. Saturn of course lies opposite of Jupiter-Uranus. Ceres resides on the "Gate of God" at 5° Sagittarius and Juno resides on the "Gate of Man" at 5° sidereal Gemini. Mars, Orcus, Neptune and Chiron also aspect the Grand Square. Mars and Orcus conjoin Regulus at 5° sidereal Leo opposite Neptune and Chiron in early Aquarius--all creating one powerful portal and geophysical resonance. The entire geometry is trigger by the Moon in early Aries, which also creates a YOD with Neptune-Chiron to Saturn. This is a primary activation of the Earth's Precessional Holy Cross 270° portal of evolutionary change.
Jupiter and Uranus make their first conjunction in the midst of the fourth and fifth triggers of the Saturn-Uranus opposition--within in a very tight and potent window shown in the graphic ephemeris below. Jupiter and Uranus make their second conjunctive trigger on September 19, just after Jupiter makes its primary square with Pluto and forms the upcoming and also very potent Jupiter-Pluto-Saturn T-square of August. Jupiter continues to oppose Makemake and Saturn and makes is final trigger with Uranus on January 4, 2011, exactly opposite Makemake. Jupiter finishes the entire timeline, making its final square to Pluto and then its final opposition to Saturn in late March of 2011.
This first conjunction on the Vernal Point of the Holy Cross, conjoining Scheat of Pegaus, is about water and the use of our life force. It motivates our re-integration of the spiritual with the primordial. Either humanity learns to participate with one another and with Earth as one living organism or we pay the price of perpetuating severe discord.
During this several month Jupiter-Uranus conjunction, the Jupiter-Uranus synod occurs. This takes place during the September 2010 "Synodic Synchronization"--the Sun-Earth-Jupiter-Uranus alignment. This event initiates a new ~13.8-year Jupiter-Uranus synodic cycle. The theme of this new cycle will be defined by the stars of early sidereal Pisces (3° 31'), including Scheat of Pegasus and those of Lacerta. The synod occurs very near where this first conjunction occurs, conjoining the Vernal Point of Earth Precessional Cross. We will explore this new theme more when the time comes.
The entire several-month Jupiter-Uranus conjunction marks the transition from the previous 31.8-year cycle into the following one.
The Previous 32-year Jupiter-Uranus Synodic Cycle
The previous Jupiter-Uranus cycle began on March 28, 1997 in sidereal Capricorn (10° 24'). The theme of the previous 31.8-year Jupiter-Uranus cycle was defined by Algedi (Alpha) and Dabih (Beta) of Capricorn; Theta Indus; Theta Aquila; Alpha Microscopium; and Gamma Sagitta.
It is worth exploring the theme of these stars and this previous synodic cycle to provide context for the nature of our recent past and the transition currently at hand.
Keep in mind that when a synodic cycle begins, the two planets are conjoined, thus creating a synthesis of their qualities, which nest in and infuse the stellar energies at the time. That synthesis then unfolds throughout the synodic cycle, making its first square, its opposition, its last square, and then the next synod. For a Jupiter-Uranus synod, Jupiter is a mobilizing and expanding force and will magnify, expand and mobilize the qualities of Uranus. Uranus breaks us from the conformity of the past and inspires us to function from a higher octave of being. Uranus is radical, unconventional, non-conforming, brings the unexpected, is spontaneous, of higher mind, illuminating, inventive with a lightning-like charge. Uranus stimulates a future focus and supports our uniqueness of being.
The first decan of sidereal Capricorn can involve a diversely-intented group of individuals and levels of consciousness, those either covert, manipulative and driven from self-interest (as the character of the old business & military paradigms), and those spiritually aware, of integrity, and who are attuned to the land and environment, including shamans and keepers of sacred knowledge and sacred ways. Here we find native indigenous peoples, often ornately dressed or adorned. This is the world of the shamanistic, the ceremonial, fanaticism, obsession, and passion. Although seemingly driven from personal motive, it is often of those with global vision and interest. Either way, surface appearances, cloaks and facades often shroud who is who in an aura of mystery.
This several degree area of the zodiak is of personal motive and secrecy, of esoteric knowledge, religion, higher education, and science; as well as the secret places and orders associated with such, or merely places of personal retreat and seclusion--but places strategic to one's purpose. Here we find locations such as military-scientific-extraterrestrial bases, hermitages, exclusive retreats, or isolated places with a spiritual focus--sacred sites or places of power under the care of their mysterious stewards. We also find an arsenal of strategic tools (technological or magikal), to either aid or control humanity as well as the skill to use them; and this includes our personal arsenals of strategic tools--how we use what we have is up to us.
This is also where an eloquent and artful play of seduction and consent co-exists; but also one that can be insidiously cunning or even voraciously violent. Hear lies the nature of the tools of business and war: the interplay of people in their sexy disguises, whether cloaked in the eloquent and sleek stealth jet, particle beam laser based satellites; or merely dressed in seductive leather and lace. Microscopic discernment is required to see through the alluring facades inherent in this world of mystery, esoteric knowledge, personal motive, and covert maneuvers, to identify what is truly nurturing verses what just tantalizingly appears to be so.
Algedi and Dabih of Capricorn form the head of the goat. Algedi is of covert and secret places: caves, spiritual or exclusive retreats and sanctuaries--isolated places with a spiritual focus--sacred sites or our places of power. Algedi is also of places of unique purpose: scientific or medical centers, even military / extraterrestrial bases or outposts. Although such places may seem to be isolated, lying helter-skelter upon the Earth, they are strategically and naturally distributed upon Earth’s energy grid. That which occurs at these locations is of significance in the greater evolutionary process for all souls and for the Earth herself because the energy at these points radiates throughout the Earth's energy matrix. Algedi can also be of covert operations, manipulative maneuvers, and all that is secret or hidden behind the scenes. Algedi specifically brings attention to the importance of our personal locations (bases/domiciles)--the resonance of which influences greatly the nature of our experience and the fulfillment of our pursuits.
Indus lies south of early Capricorn, just below Microscopium. Indus, classically the desert Persian, is the native indigenous person, much like the Native American, the Aboriginal, the Desert Arab, or the Mountain Shaman--sometimes ornately dressed or adorned, and sometimes totally inconspicuous and unassuming. Indus articulates the steward of a special place, a keeper of sacred knowledge and sacred ways. This is the world of the shamanistic, the ceremonial, and passionate. It can even be of fanaticism and obsession. Although seemingly driven from personal motive, it is often of those with a broad global vision and special interest. Either way, surface appearances, cloaks and facades often shroud who is who in an aura of mystery. Indus has a deep respect for the land, for life, and is sensitive to a place's power and purpose.
Aquila, the northern Eagle, perched high above the Earth, is of removed stillness and astute observation; is of equilibrium and poise, with global vision and local purpose. As Eagle sits high upon its perch, with eyes capable of focusing on the most minute detail (conjoining Microscopium), it assesses, examines, and awaits its opportunity. Removed and alone, Eagle embodies the willingness to examine our deepest emotions and hidden but true feelings; to pin-point our objectives from objective balance, and to then dive into the world with surety and boldness.
Altair, eye of the eagle, and Alshain, Beta Aquila, are of global and extraterrestrial vision; of strategic locations to achieve our purpose, also of military sites as well as Earth's sacred sites. Altair inspires us to perceive from a global, even extraterrestrial perspective; and not merely from a local, isolated view, but with a focus of precision detail. In classical astrology, Altair is of assertive authoritarian militaristic leadership, of military force and power. Friend and siderealist Andrés Takra adds: "Altair has been associated with kings, emperors, conquerors, tyrants, politicians, but also with mystics, occultists, and wise spiritual hierophants of mystery-religions...."
Alpha Microscopium articulates the tendency, capacity, and need for magnification and examination of detail, which is required to see where to apply our knowledge and tools through the diverse facades common to the human world.
Gamma Sagitta, conjoining Alpha Microscopium is the "tip of the missile of Zeus." Sagitta, the missile of Zeus, extends over the first decan of sidereal Capricorn, with its tip, Gamma Sagitta, of significance here. Sagitta embodies our strategic arsenal of tools--whether applied for war or peace--this includes our personal tools to accomplish our goals in the material world. The tip of missile inspires direct application of those tools. Along with Alpha Microscopium we can see how this is fitting to the modern tools of was, such as laser-based satellites and missiles with pin-point accuracy.
From this alone we can certainly see the emphasis of radical development of secretive and advanced technology applied for war over these last 30 years--unfortunately; but this theme has also been supportive of many other technological advancements that aid humanity.
The Jupiter-Uranus conjunction starting now and the upcoming new 32-year Jupiter-Uranus Synoic cycle starting in September of 2010 should herald welcomed change.
Let us also keep in mind that this Jupiter-Uranus theme, now coming to its completion, coincides with the 180° midpoint of the Saturn-Uranus cycle; and these transitions also coincide with the first square (90°) of the current Jupiter-Pluto cycle and the second square (270°) of the current Saturn-Pluto cycle--both of which fuse in the August 2010 Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter T-square--all creating a dynamic several months ahead.
Upcoming Events Specific to the Saturn-Makemake-Uranus Timeline:
July-August 2010
The Grand Saturn-Pluto-Jupiter T-Sqaure
Pluto Squares Jupiter: July 2010 - February 2011
Saturn-Uranus Opposition #5 - July 26, 2010
The closing opposition completes the Saturn-Uranus challenge. This event precedes the forthcoming Earth-Jupiter-Uranus "Synodic Synchronization," which fully mobilizes the changes that have occurred since the Saturn-Uranus series of oppositions began in November of 2008.
The Mobilization of Change
The Earth-Jupiter-Uranus "The Synodic Synchronization"
September 19-21 2010 - A new 13.5 year cycle begins
The Sun, Earth, Jupiter and Uranus align on September 19-21, 2010. Not only does Earth begin its new annual synodic cycles with Jupiter and Uranus, but Jupiter and Uranus also begin their new 13.5-year synodic cycle in early sidereal Pisces. This new cycle continues through March 13, 2024. The previous Jupiter-Uranus cycle began in March 28, 1997 in sidereal Capricorn (~10°)--the cycle we are now completing. This previous cycle began just after and within the first part of the new Uranus-Neptune 172-year synodic cycle that began in 1993 under the auspices of Lyra, Harp of the Angels.
More to come....
The 2011 Emergence
Jupiter Uranus & Makemake....
The Uranus-Pluto 90° Square 2012 - 2015
Uranus and Pluto will make their 90° synodic square on November 30, 2013; with their lengthy geocentric square occurring from June 24, 2012 through March 16, 2015. this is a 90° square (external stimulus to action) in the ~138-year Uranus-Pluto synodic cycle that began on January 11, 1966. This synod coincided with the mid-point of the Saturn-Uranus synodic cycle that began on August 22, 1947--creating a compounded synodic alignment (Saturn-Sun-Uranus-Pluto).
The January 1966 compounded synod (Uranus-Pluto and the Saturn-Pluto mid-point) occurred at the peak of the Vietnam War; with Uranus and Pluto nesting in the hind of the Loin, between toxic Zosma and Denebola, the tail of the Lion, and conjoining fiery Mizar of Ursa Major. More about this can be found in the article: The Saturn-Pluto Synods: A Historical Exploration 1915-2020.
I will write a separate article about the 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto square as we approach it; as the cycles occurin in this 2008-2011 timeline feed into the 2012-2015 Uranus-Pluto square.

Venus in the 2nd House,By Blair Gorman,

There are all kinds of markers in an astrology chart that can
indicate wealth or fame but perhaps one of the most significant
placements that means that you will be living your entire life on
easy street is indicated by the planet Venus in the second house of
a natal chart. Venus in the second house indicates a person who
has great artistic qualities and who will spend his or her life
pursuing health, personal possessions and social status. These
lucky individuals also often marry rich. Individuals with Venus in
the second house can be a little shallow as material security is
very important. It is usually a mark of celebrity as talent for
business is indicated, especially business related to music or the

Venus if you will recall is the love planet responsible for
bringing benevolence, grace and gratification and the second house
in an astrological chart rules possessions, wealth and attitudes
towards money. If Venus is in Taurus, which is an exalted position
in a natal chart for Venus to be in, then the person is blessed
with a double whammy of luck in his or her lifetime.

A really good example of a Venus in the Second House type person is
Brad Pitt. Who was born December 12th, 1963. His second house is
actually ruled by Capricorn which can create a person who is wise
with wealth as Capricorn is a very "slow and steady wins the race"
type sign. He is good at making investments and has shown himself
to be a great art collector as well as a film producer. Brad
actually has a stellium in his second house accompanying the Venus
including Mercury, Mars and the Moon. In the second house Mercury
would mean making money from media (like film or art), Mars would
indicate success in general (especially for a male) and the moon
would indicate an overall good gut instinct.

Leonardo Di Caprio is also a great example of a Venus in the second
house type and his chart is also supported by a stellium of planets
including his Sun, which is in Scorpio. (Di Caprio was born
November 11, 1974) He also has Mercury, Mars, Lilith and Uranus in
his second house. Giving him an even bigger boost in income is
Jupiter in the tenth house, which can guarantee a lifetime of
success. This moon is in Capricorn, which further exalts this fine
actor's ability to be successful in life.

Yet another rich and powerful person with a second house Venus is
Oprah Winfrey. This nicely placed Venus conjuncts her Sun, sextiles
her Moon, trines Jupiter, squares Saturn, quincunxes her Ascendant,
and trines her Midheaven. Her Sun, Venus, and Mercury occupy her
second house, and the second house ruler (Uranus) trines Mars and
squares Neptune. When you look at her chart it is evident that she
is meant to be successful from almost every angle.

Paris Hilton, the very iconic symbol of the rich heiress in this
century, also has that all-providing Venus in the second house in
her chart. Supporting this is also her sun and her Mars, which
means she could acquire even more wealth by marriage. Mars however
tells us a little secret about Paris Hilton. She is not as
spoon-fed as she appears and is a very hard worker. Lucky Paris
also has Jupiter in the tenth house which is symbolic of being fed
with a silver spoon all of one's life as well.

People whose legacies keep on making money long after they have
died often have this Venus in the second house as well. A great
example is Elvis Presley who had a Sun in Capricorn in the second
house which brought him great stability and wealth. Mars and Venus
were also nicely united in his second house meaning that his wife
and children (Lisa Marie Presley) would profit nicely for a long
time after his death. Just as an aside he also had Mercury in the
tenth house of career which rules films and recordings, which may
also explain the long shadow of his cinematic and musical legacy.
It is a pity he passed away as he was a very faithful and durable
partner to his wife and a great parent.

This Venus in the second house configuration has also created some
very flashy and extravagant people. Elton John who might as well be
the male version of Paris Hilton has Venus in the second house, and
like her, it is also in foppish Aquarius, which probably explains
why both celebrities spend so much money on glittering accessories
and clothing. Yet another example of the Venus in the second house
that is in Aquarius type of eccentric is the actor Nicholas Cage
who is always splurging his money on strange things like vintage
motorcycles and Elvis Presley collectibles.

It seems only appropriate that the man who wrote, "Take care of the
luxuries and the necessities will take care of themselves" also had
Venus in the second house. I am of course talking about famed
playwright and writer Oscar Wilde who was born October 16, 1864.
It was joined there by his Sun in Libra. Supporting his great fame
as a writer was his Jupiter in Gemini, which made him the center of
attention no matter what he did.

Second house Venus types can be extravagant although luckily for
them, their gambles almost always pay off in spades. A good example
is Francis Ford Coppola who made one of the most expensive films of
his time "Apocalypse Now." As risky as this venture looked at time
there was never any doubt that it would be a blockbuster, at least
according to the cosmos as Coppola also has wealth making Jupiter
joining Venus in his second house. Also supporting Venus in the
second house is the wealth and prosperity bringing asteroid, Juno,
giving Coppola a three-planet stellium guaranteeing him great good
fortune always.

In the next newsletter we will be starting a series where we look
at the compatibility of one sign with all of the other signs
romantically starting with the first sign of the Zodiac - Aries.

5th Ray Ideals in Action from Bill Harris,Director of the Centerpoint Research Institute.

Lesson Seven Notes
1. Welcome to Lesson 7 of the Success Solution course. Let’s do a little review and then get into something new. In the last lesson, I started out by telling you that one of my goals in this course was to de-mystify the success process. Many people think that creating what you want in the world requires some sort of magic touch, special connections, luck, or certain difficult to attain abilities. None of this is true, however.
2. Success is actually very simple. Anyone can be successful if they’re willing to follow a few key principles, learn to think and focus their mind in a certain way, take action, learn from what happens, and be persistent. As I’ve said before, there is a certain way of thinking and acting that will get you any outcome you want. You just have to find it and be flexible enough to adopt it. Remember that the term "thinking" includes your beliefs, attitudes, values, metaprograms, the internal representations you make, along with their submodalities, your metaprograms, and your internal strategies.
3. In other words, when I say "thinking" I mean what you do with your internal map of reality to focus your mind. Since how you focus your mind is the key to what you create in life, finding the way of thinking that will get you the outcomes you want is very important. And, if you aren’t willing to look for and find the way of thinking and acting that leads to what you want, and then be flexible enough to adopt it, then please be content the way you are. Don’t torture yourself by wanting something without being willing to do what it takes to create it. And remember that doing what it takes to get what you want can be easy and it can be fun.
4. I again mentioned the six-step process, which is the basis of the second part of the formula, how you act. This simple set of instructions offers an easy way to decide what to do next in every situation. I also mentioned one of the most basic ideas of all three of these courses, which takes us back to the "thinking" side of the equation: that you can and must learn how to be in charge of your internal state. When you’re in charge of your state, you can easily create what you want, and the ability to be in charge of your state is well worth the effort involved to learn how to do it.
5.In many ways, the key to creating any outcome is to learn how to consciously and intentionally focus your mind on that outcome, instead of allowing your mind to focus automatically and unconsciously. When you allow your mind to focus automatically and unconsciously, sometimes you get what you want and sometimes you don’t. Our goal is to create a very high percentage of what we want and a very low percentage of what we don’t want. No one gets what they want all the time, because others are trying to get what they want, and sometimes that interferes with your getting what you want. But by learning how to operate your mind in a conscious and intentional way, you can get what you want almost all of the time.6.Next, I reviewed the subject of learning from adversity. Because anyone who sets out to do something or create something in the world encounters setbacks and adversities, knowing how to turn these setbacks into advantages gives you a huge advantage over those who don’t know how to deal with this fact of life. Please remember that every adversity carries with it the seed of an equivalent or greater benefit. Whenever you encounter a setback, immediately begin looking for that seed of an equivalent or greater benefit and begin to nurture it. With this attitude, no matter what happens, you win.
7. Next I introduced the principle of Going the Extra Mile. This has to be one of the most powerful ways of thinking and acting you could possibly adopt. This principle applies to success in business, the arts, human relationships, or anything else in life. You might be able to create a certain amount of what you want in life without it, but without this principle success is a struggle. And, this principle makes the difference between success with no satisfaction on one hand and success with lots of satisfaction on the other. It is one of the big secrets of happiness and fulfillment.8. I said quite a bit about Going the Extra Mile in the last lesson, and I’m going to share more about it in this lesson. Let’s quickly review what I said last time. First, let me remind you of exactly what Going the Extra Mile means: it means giving more and doing more than expected, giving more and doing more than that for which you are already being compensated, and doing so with a positive, pleasing attitude. Compensation, by the way, could be money, but it could also be friendship, love, the opportunity to participate in certain projects or situations, or anything else that comes to you. It doesn’t have to be just money.9. I described a number of benefits of Going the Extra Mile. One powerful benefit is that it causes people who might be able to help you to notice you, to be impressed with you, and to want to help you. It makes you indispensable to others in whatever you do. Going the Extra Mile allows you to command a larger income, because when you Go the Extra Mile you are worth more. It leads to the perfection of whatever you set out to do, which opens up greater opportunities, more money, and greater satisfaction and fulfillment. It ensures that you’ll always have employment, and probably the best of jobs, since you’ll always be one of the first people others want and the last to go in tough times. 10. It enables you to stand out, because (unfortunately) few others will be Going the Extra Mile. It leads to the development of a positive mental attitude, which is one of the Twelve Great Riches of Life. It develops your imagination as you look for better and better ways to be of more service to others. It develops personal initiative, self-reliance, courage, confidence, and integrity. It creates motivation and ends procrastination. It develops Definiteness of Purpose, which Napoleon Hill identified as the starting point of all achievement. And, it’s the only logical reason why an employer, or the world in general, should send more compensation—whether material or some other type of compensation—your way.11. I described how Going the Extra Mile is really a way of paying in advance, and that when you pay in advance, you always pay the lowest price. At first glance it looks as if Going the Extra Mile would involve paying more, but I assure you that when you follow this principle you actually end up with more, financially, emotionally, and in every other way, for less—even though you're doing more than other people.
12. I likened this to debt, where you pay after you receive the benefit, and always end up paying more. This is, by the way, why debt is so insidious. When you receive something for which you have not yet paid the price to have it, you always pay more. This is how people end up living month to month—they want the benefit in advance, go into debt in order to do that, and then end up paying more for everything. Going the Extra Mile is broader than just the idea of staying out of debt, though. It is the idea that paying in advance, paying more than what is expected, and doing so gladly, brings huge dividends in all areas of life.
13. I also pointed out that if you aren’t giving more and better service than that for which you’re already being paid, you’re actually already receiving adequate compensation for what you’re doing. You can, though, on your own initiative, Go the Extra Mile and in doing so put the universe in your debt. By doing this, you receive much more from life.
Also remember that Going the Extra Mile isn’t done for selfish reasons, even though you do end up with much more. You may know in the back of your mind that Going the Extra Mile is beneficial to you, but you really do it because it’s the right thing to do. It feels good.
14. I mentioned in the last lesson that some people worry that Going the Extra Mile allows others to take advantage of them. This actually isn’t possible, however, for a number of reasons. First, Going the Extra Mile is done on your own initiative. No one asks you to do it. At any time, you could stop, so you are in control of whether or not you’re being taken advantage of. However, by stopping you also stop accruing the benefits I mentioned.
15. Second, since no matter who you Go the Extra Mile for, no matter who notices or doesn’t notice, no matter who appreciates it or doesn’t appreciate it, you are building up credit with the universe that will be repaid. On this I ask you to have faith. And, as I said last time, the longer you wait, the more interest you accrue. Remember, though, that this must be done with a positive attitude, which means you must have a positive focus as you do it. If you Go the Extra Mile begrudgingly, or while saying to yourself, "Okay, where’s my reward?" it will not work.16. I also mentioned a question that sometimes comes up when I discuss Going the Extra Mile, which concerns co-dependency and shame. If you Go the Extra Mile because you feel inadequate, or because you feel that you’re not okay unless you’re doing more for others, you really aren’t Going the Extra Mile. You’re just trying to cope with feelings of shame and inadequacy. If this describes you, I suggest using Time Line to get rid of the shame, or to see a counselor familiar with shame issues and work through them.
17. I then told you several of my experiences with Going the Extra Mile, and told you that I firmly believe that my own success is largely the result of my focus on giving more and better service to all of you and to all of the other thousands and thousands of Centerpointe program participants.18. I’m going to get right down to the nitty-gritty now, and talk about something I rarely talk about directly, though if you really listen it’s behind everything I teach, and that is the subject of love. There is a clear and close connection between Going the Extra Mile, success, fulfillment in life, and love. It’s difficult if not impossible to be truly successful and truly fulfilled in life without Going the Extra Mile, and it’s difficult if not impossible to Go the Extra Mile without love. So let’s talk about love for a bit.
19. When you love, you are other-centered. Or, in the terms we used in the second course, you see that there really is no other, that the universe is all one big process, and that you are that process, perceiving it from one particular spot in the universe. When I see people who struggle with life, who struggle with success, one of the first things I notice is that they are very me-centered. I’m not saying this from a judgmental place. I spent most of the first forty years of my life thinking mostly of myself, something psychologists call narcissism. At this point, I have a great deal of compassion for someone who is focused primarily on themselves, because I understand why this happens.
20. When self-focused, a person often doesn’t notice their effect on others, and they certainly cannot Go the Extra Mile in the way I’m suggesting. When someone is self-focused they are using all, or almost all, their attention to hold themselves together. As a result, they have little or no energy and attention left over to care about others, consider their needs, or to notice the affects of their actions.
21. Going the Extra Mile is a way to move yourself from this self-focused way of living to the much more beneficial and fulfilling other-focused way of living. To do this, you have to trust that you won’t fall apart if you do so, that you won’t fail to meet your own needs. In fact, when you do this your needs are much more easily met, as you would expect when Going the Extra Mile. Superficially, it might seem that if you Go the Extra Mile for others—especially when your own needs are unmet or barely met—that you'll lose what little you have and then you really will be lost. But that isn’t how it works, and this is an area in which you must have faith in the universe.
22. I want to share something about love, a poem by Robert G. Ingersoll. As I read it, also think of "other-centered" when you hear the word love. And, keep in mind that while it’s wonderful to be on the receiving end of love, it’s just as fulfilling—perhaps even more fulfilling—to be on the giving end. The natural law behind Going the Extra Mile ensures that if you are loving, if you are other-centered, if you give to the world and to others, it will come back to you, usually many times over.
23. Love is the only bow on life's dark cloud.
24. To some this may sound sappy and utopian, but I’m here to tell you that when you look at life in this way, in which you’re here to help others get what they want and to give more and better service than anyone expects, you not only feel fulfilled, you find that whatever you want and need comes to you easily. True success is much more than making money or some other sort of achievement. These things are important, because we all want security and nice things, but they are a side-effect of this overall attitude of loving others, of helping others, of Going the Extra Mile.
25. So if you find yourself in the position where most or all of your attention is on yourself and your own problems, I understand. I once was there, and I know what it’s like. I wish someone had taught me this information during that period. Instead, I gradually learned it the hard way. When you are in such a place, it does indeed seem as if you must keep your attention on yourself or what little you have will desert you. But if you have the faith to let go, and focus on others, and Go the Extra Mile in everything you do, magical things will happen for you.
26. I told you that for a great portion of my life I was focused on myself. I thought I had to in order to hold things together. As a result, I often offended people and drove people away and certainly had a difficult time connecting with other people. As I used Holosync, that began to change, and by the time I started Centerpointe in 1989 I had healed enough that I could begin to be more other-centered. Centerpointe gave me a platform from which I could Go the Extra Mile, from which I could pay attention to what others needed and do something to meet those needs.27. Once I began to take advantage of this opportunity, my life began to change. I became increasingly happier, and more and more of everything I needed—materially, emotionally, and spiritually—began to flow to me. Before, not much of anything was flowing to me, so this was a significant change. It was something I never would have imagined could happen. I’m sharing this with you because I want it to happen for you, too.
28. When I suggest that you move from being me-centered to being other-centered, and suggest Going the Extra Mile as one means of creating that shift, some people respond by beating themselves up for the fact that right now they are in a me-centered place. If you are in a me-centered place, I want you to realize that you have a very good reason for being there. You had to be there to make it through your childhood. It’s just that once you get away from your family of origin, you don’t need the same strategies to survive, and very often what was totally necessary in our family creates a lot of problems, or in some way holds us back, when we get away from our family and out in the world. So if you are feeling bad because you’ve realized that you’re a lot like I was and are coming from a me-centered place, let it be okay that this is where you are right now. 29. Both Holosync and the principle of Going the Extra Mile are powerful ways to make the transition to an other-centered way of living. As you do that, tremendous positive benefits will come to you, just as they have for me. And the more you use this principle, the greater the benefit.
30. One more thing to keep in mind: being other-centered doesn’t mean you never think about yourself or your own needs. To be concerned about yourself and your own needs is normal. I can’t say what percentage of time an other-centered person is thinking of him or herself and what percentage of time they are thinking of how to meet the needs of others. I suggest increasing the amount that your focus is on Going the Extra Mile, and see what happens. Then, keep going until you find the amount that works best. I’m pretty sure that it will take some time before you hit the point where you’re doing too much for others. Keep in mind, however, that doing for others because of shame, as a way of being okay, is not Going the Extra Mile, and if that is what you do, you need to do something to deal with the shame issue. If you need guidance on this, please feel free to email with the Questions link in this lesson.
31. Why am I spending so much time on this subject? Because I believe it is crucially important to your happiness and your success. I’ve spent a lot of time in this course on the how-to of achievement, and I probably will spend more time on it in later lessons. The how-to is important, no doubt about it. But the how-to is the easy part. Any person with a reasonable amount of intelligence can quickly learn the how-to aspect of success. All you have to do is notice what other people who are creating what you want are doing, and adopt their methods. What really separates the average person from the truly successful and fulfilled human being—what separates the unhappy person from the person who really does attain the Twelve Great Riches of Life—are these more abstract qualities of character I'm sharing with you.
32. In fact, let’s quickly review the Twelve Great Riches of Life. As I read these, I’d like you to really imagine yourself having all of them. What would it be like? The Twelve Great Riches of Life really are possible for you, and I’m doing everything I can in this course to show you how to create them in your life.
33. They are: A positive mental attitude, sound physical health, harmony in human relationships, freedom from fear, the hope of achievement, the capacity for faith, a willingness to share one’s blessings, a labor of love, an open mind on all subjects, self-discipline, the capacity to understand people, and financial security. These Twelve Great Riches of Life are outcomes that nearly every human being wants, and they lead to happiness and inner peace. I’m doing my best to give you the information, the principles, you need to have what you want in life. Please know that no matter what your past or present circumstances, you can have all of them.34. I’d like to share a few instances of others who have used Going the Extra Mile to change their lives. Some of these stories are several decades old, since I’ve lifted them from Napoleon Hill, but they are such great examples I wanted to share them with you. Hill tells the story of an elderly woman who was strolling through a Pittsburgh department store. She was obviously just killing time and wasn’t there to buy anything. All the clerks ignored her when she stopped at their counters. However, one young man, when she stopped at his counter asked her if he might serve her. When she said, no, she was just killing time until the rain stopped so she could go home, he said to her: "Well, in that case, could I bring out a chair for you?" and without waiting for an answer, he got her a chair. When the rain finally stopped, he took her by the arm and escorted her to the street and said good-bye to her. As she left, she asked for his card.
35. Several months later, the owner of the store received a letter asking that this same young man come to Scotland to take an order to furnish a home there. The owner replied that this man was not in that department, but he would send someone who specialized in home furnishings. She wrote back that only this young man would do, and the young man was sent, because the letters were signed by Andrew Carnegie, and the elderly woman was his mother. The young man went to Scotland and took an order for several hundred thousand dollars worth of furniture. As a result, the young man became a partner in the store, and later became half owner of the store. The young man had no motive of gain when he was kind to this elderly woman, but he certainly did Go the Extra Mile, and he certainly did benefit.
36. In another instance, the editor of a magazine was invited to deliver a speech at a school. He was offered his regular fee, which was, in today’s money, several thousand dollars plus travel expenses. He went and gave the speech, and in the course of doing so picked up several ideas for stories for the magazine. When the school asked for his expenses so they could write him a check, he refused to accept payment for the speech, saying that he had already been well paid through the material he had picked up for the magazine, and returned home. 37. The fact that he had turned down his fee became an item of considerable interest among the students and other people in the town. During the next week his magazine received sixty times as much revenue in subscriptions as the speaking fee would have brought in, and in the next two years the magazine received 500 times as much in revenue from students from the school and citizens of the town. Then, the story was picked up by another magazine with a worldwide circulation and as a result subscriptions came in from all over the world.
38. So by rendering service without collecting for it, the editor set to work the power of Going the Extra Mile and ended up with more than 500 times the original benefit he would have received. This story reminds me very much of my experience at Centerpointe. As I’ve gone the Extra Mile with many of you, you’ve told your friends and relatives and as a result thousands upon thousands of people have joined Centerpointe programs.
39. Not only that, many other things have come to me and to Centerpointe as a result of giving more and better service than was expected. For instance, I’m now being invited to speak or collaborate with many prominent people such as Jack Canfield, Joe Vitale, Ken Wilber, and at various different conferences and other places and situations.
40. We’re also exploring the possibility of a PBS Series about the Nine Principles, we’re making some connections with Deepak Chopra with the possibility of doing some seminars together, and I’ve been asked to participate in many other groups and situations. I just spoke at the United Nations for the UN Values Caucus, and one of the people at that presentation is involved with the Mayor’s office in New York and wants me to do a similar presentation for the City of New York. I attribute most of this, ultimately, to all the time I’ve spent Going the Extra Mile. I didn’t Go the Extra Mile in order to receive these benefits, but they came nonetheless.
41. I want you to remember, too, that fifteen years ago, when I started Centerpointe, I had nothing going on. It’s probably easy to hear me list all these accomplishments and opportunities and feel that things like this are impossible for you. I assure you that there is nothing I’ve done that you can’t do. Though your vision of what is possible may not be as big as mine is now, if you follow the principles I’m describing—which you certainly can do—anything is possible. Please don’t think that these things are happening for me because there’s something special about me. They are happening because this is what happens when you focus on what you want, take action, and Go the Extra Mile. You can do the same.42. Sometimes what looks like the smallest incident of Going the Extra Mile leads to huge benefits. Many years ago a young salesman in a hardware store saw throughout the store many odds and ends that were not selling or were out of date in some way. Though it wasn’t his job to do so, and no one told him to do it, he rounded up these odds and ends, placed them on a table in the middle of the store, and marked the items as being for sale for ten cents each—probably the equivalent of a dollar or two in today's money. The items quickly sold out, and from this small example of Going the Extra Mile grew the F.W. Woolworth Five and Ten Cent stores. I believe Woolworth’s is out of business today, but Frank Woolworth, who was that young clerk, created a fortune of about a billion dollars in today’s money, all because he had the initiative to Go the Extra Mile on a slow day at work.
43.No one told Woolworth to take this initiative. No one paid him extra to do so. Yet his actions brought huge returns. In addition to himself, his idea made millionaires of several other people, gave employment to many thousands over many decades, and performed a valuable service for the customers of his stores. In fact, Woolworth’s was the model for the modern methods of merchandising that have dramatically lowered the cost of most household and home entertainment items sold in department and variety stores today.44. Another story: Many years ago a man named Arthur Nash had a tailoring business. Unfortunately, he was close to bankruptcy, just one step ahead of the sheriff and foreclosure.Worried that their jobs might disappear, his employees caught his spirit of defeatism, which of course affected their work and made the business even less successful. Nash knew he had to do something. Coincidentally, he had just read about the man I described a moment ago who had refused his speaking fee and as a result received over 500 times as much business.45. Nash called together his employees, explained the dismal situation the business was in, and suggested that if everyone caught the spirit of Going the Extra Mile then perhaps the business, and their jobs, might be saved. He asked them if they could temporarily forget about wages and working hours and just pitch in and Go the Extra Mile in an attempt to save the business. He promised that if the business could be saved, everyone would get back wages plus a bonus. The employees liked the idea and agreed to give it a try, and without being asked, many of them even brought in small amounts of money they’d saved and loaned it to Mr. Nash.46. The whole spirit of the company changed, and the employees began to Go the Extra Mile for the customers, and the business began to improve, and eventually prospered like it never had before. Mr. Nash eventually became quite wealthy as a result, and when he retired he gave the business to his employees. You can believe me that every one of them was a big believer in the principle of Going the Extra Mile.47. I have one more story for you. Before I tell it, I want to acknowledge that these stories are mostly business oriented. I know that you may not be taking this course because you want to make more money or create a business or rise up in the ranks of the company you work for, though many of you do want that. If your interest is somewhere else, you might find it easy to dismiss these stories as being unrelated to your situation. Please don’t let the fact that these stories are about business or involve making money keep you from seeing the lesson in them.
48. Whether your situation has to do with money or business, or something else like friendship, or romantic love, or developing certain artistic talents, or doing some sort of charitable work, or creating social change, or any other goal you might have, Going the Extra Mile works. I hope you will be able to translate these stories in such a way that you can see how this principle will indeed benefit you no matter what you want to do.
49. Napoleon Hill was writing for people in the 1930s and 1940s, when there was tremendus unemployment, people’s spirits were low, and more than anything people were looking for ways to make a living and to improve their life—in some cases, to survive. You may not be in this situation, and these stories may not be about what you’re going through, but Going the Extra Mile is a universal law, and it works in any situation. I want you to have the benefits it will bring you, which is why I’m spending so much time telling you about it.50. Those of you who want a more fulfilling life, a happier life, will want to really take heed regarding this principle. This principle is the easy way to fulfillment and getting what you want in life. Here’s what Napoleon Hill said about Going the Extra Mile: "The pot of gold at the 'end of the rainbow' is not a fairy tale! The end of that extra mile is the spot where the rainbow ends, and that is where the pot of gold is hidden...The trouble with most of us is that we do not know how to follow rainbows. Those who know the secret know that the end of the rainbow can be reached only by going the extra mile."
51. Another story. A man named Carol Downes worked at a bank. One day William C. Durant, the founder of General Motors, came into the bank after banking hours and asked a favor of Mr. Downes that ordinarily would have been asked during regular hours. Mr. Downes not only granted the small favor, but went the Extra Mile in granting it. He did the favor with added courtesy and made Mr. Durant feel that it was a real pleasure to serve him. The whole thing was in many ways a trivial incident.52. The next day, however, Mr. Durant contacted Carol Downes and offered him a job at General Motors. He was offered a desk in a general office along with nearly one hundred other people, his hours being 8:30 to 5:30. At the end of the first day, everyone but Carol Downes hurried to leave at 5:30. Mr. Downes, however, remained at his desk. Fifteen minutes later Dr. Durant came out of his office, noticed Mr. Downes, and told him that perhaps he did not understand that he could go home at 5:30. "I realize that," Carol Downes answered, "but I thought I would remain and see if there was some way I could be of service to you." Mr. Durant, perhaps with tongue in cheek, asked him if he could find him a pencil. Downes found the pencil, and before delivering it made sure it had a sharp point on it. Mr. Durant thanked him and said good night.
53. The next day the same thing happened. Downes remained at his desk after everyone had left, and again Mr. Durant asked him if he had misunderstood that he could go home at 5:30."Yes, I understand," he said, "but no one said I had to go home at 5:30, and I decided to stay in the hope that I might somehow be of service to you." Every day this scene repeated itself, where Downes stayed late and asked for extra duties, which he was given. No one paid him extra for this, and to the casual observer it might have looked as if he was wasting his time.54. Several months went by, when one day Mr. Durant called him into his office and told him to go out to a new plant that had been opened and supervise the installation of new plant machinery. Instead of saying, "But I don’t know anything about installing machinery," he accepted the position and went on his way. Three months later, the job was completed. In fact, it was accomplished so expertly that Mr. Durant called Downes into his office and asked him where he’d learned so much about machinery. Downes replied that he knew nothing about machinery, but realized that there were many men in the plant who did know how to do the job, so he gathered them together, learned from them, and then supervised their work. Durant immediately made him the new plant manager at a very large salary. In fact, over the next decade, Downes made over ten million dollars and became a close advisor to William C. Durant.55. In giving Downes this new position at a much higher salary, Durant said "There are two kinds of people who are valuable. One kind can do something and do it well, without complaining of overwork. The other is one who can get other people to do something well without complaining. You are both types in one package." What he was noticing was that Carol Downes had the habit of Going the Extra Mile, and he had the ability to get others to Go the Extra Mile.56. Now some of Downes' co-workers might have been envious of him and suspected that he had some sort of inside pull, or that his relationship with the boss was based on luck. But Carol Downes created his own pull, by his own initiative, by Going the Extra Mile, and doing it with a positive mental attitude. You can do the same thing, no matter what your goal is in life. Not only that, it’s fun and satisfying to live this way.
57. Later, Carol Downes was asked how he came to be a close advisor to Mr. Durant. He said, "I just made it my business to get in his way, so that he could see me. When he looked around, wanting some little service, he called on me because I was the only one in sight. In time he got into the habit of calling on me." When he was called upon, however, Carol Downes went the Extra Mile, and Durant noticed this and knew that when something needed to be done, he could count on Carol Downes. There is nothing keeping you from being like Carol Downes in some way in some area of your life, and I hope you will.
58.There are many stories of ordinary people who became millionaires, or achieved some other significant success by Going the Extra Mile. Andrew Carnegie alone is said to have promoted over forty ordinary day laborers in his company until each of them reached millionaire status. These promotions came because their Going the Extra Mile made them worth that much to the company. But you don’t have to want to be rich, or to create a big company, or have a huge world-shaking goal to utilize this principle. You can go the Extra Mile in any job, you can use it in your marriage, with your children, at your church, or in any part of your life. If you do, you’ll find that you benefit in the same way these other people have. The whole world is clamoring for people who are willing to Go the Extra Mile, and you can easily be one of them.59. I want to give you some homework now, and then we’re going to do another Time Line process to eliminate sadness. Once again, I want to make sure you have created a goal statement and are reading it aloud twice a day, while visualizing yourself already in possession of your goal. When you do this, add as much positive emotion as possible. Then, create an action plan, and take action. Follow the six-step process by noticing what happens, evaluating your results—or lack of results—and then based on that evaluation refine your plan and take more action.60. Let me also remind you that you want to be looking for Mastermind partners, people whose talents and resources you can use to help you achieve your goal. Now that you are acquainted with Going the Extra Mile, you can see that you want to Go the Extra Mile in your relationship with such people, and make sure they benefit, and also look for people who Go the Extra Mile when assembling such a group. You might want to review the parts of this course where I discuss Mastermind groups.
61. Also look for others who have done what you want to accomplish, and model their beliefs, values, strategies, metaprograms, and actions. Instead of reinventing the wheel, take the shortcut by finding out what others have done who had the same goal.
Finally, continue to work on your list of ways you can Go the Extra Mile, and take personal initiative to do so every chance you get. And, if you have any questions about any of this, use the Questions link in this lesson to email your questions.
62. Last time we did a Time Line process to help you deal with anger, and the lesson before that we dealt with fear. If you did these processes, you should have eliminated the emotional charge from any past events that had been creating anger and fear in your life. Very often when anger and fear are eliminated, an underlying sadness can come up, so this time I want to help you get rid of sadness.63. I’m doing these processes with you to help you eliminate any underlying emotional material that might hold you back from going ahead right now and thinking and acting in such a way that you can create whatever you want. I’m not getting a lot of feedback on how you’re doing with these processes, so I’ll just say that I certainly hope you are fully participating in them. The how-to part of achievement is actually pretty easy. It’s the emotional part that can be difficult. When someone has trouble becoming successful in something, it’s almost always because of unresolved emotional material, so resolving these emotional blocks is very important. Otherwise, I wouldn’t spend so much time on this.
So, with that, let’s get rid of any sadness you may have from the past.
[At this point I lead you through a process designed to eliminate sadness. Please be sure to listen to the actual recording of this lesson and to participate in this important process.]Now, if you had any trouble with this process, please email the issue using the Questions link on the website and tell us about it.
Until the next lesson, be well.
It is the morning and evening star.
It shines upon the babe, and sheds its radiance on the quiet tomb.
It is the mother of art, inspirer of poet, patriot and philosopher.
It is the air and light of every heart—builder of every home,
kindler of every fire on every hearth.
It was the first to dream of immortality.
It fills the world with melody—for music is the voice of love.
Love is the magician, the enchanted, that changes worthless things to joy, and makes right royal kings and queens of common clay.
It is that perfume of that wondrous flower, the heart, and without that sacred passion, that divine swoon, we are less than beasts;
But with it, earth is heaven and we are gods.
