Universcale - something wonderful from Nikon.


A very cool corporate promo....

Check it out - Universcale shows the universe from a grand scale down to the nano scale from the standpoint of the observer.

My friend Nassim Harimein came up with findings that mathematically showed that principals driving forces on the grand scale of the cosmos are identical with principals driving the quantum level of infinitesimally small.

I mentioned his findings and a link to his white paper in a blog recently "Unified Field Paper-groundbreaking work."

Really - Simple Health Practices

Air - Get fresh air,
Water - drink lots of water
Sunshine - get outdoors
Whole Foods - organic, non processed foods - whole grains, greens
Walking - Walk as often as possible
Non-Toxic Relationships - If you're in a toxic relationship change it or get out
Passion - focus on that which you have passion for in your life

If you look at your life, you might think that you already know about these things, yet how infrequently you practice them.

Really do it.

Sacred Geometry - in us, can redefine our human experience


The recent piece on Reality Sandwich by author and researcher Richard Merrick called "Building a Religion" speaks to the promise that simple geometry has to provide a new view for reality.

The geometry he speaks to is known as "sacred geometry" by many, Richard refers to it as "harmonic science" with references to Newton, Da Vinci, Pythagoras.

The article is a must read - as he speaks of the history of harmonic science in science and religion over the centuries and to the potential that it holds to transform our relationship with our Cosmos.

He writes:

"But if the study of harmonic science ever were allowed back into the educational system, we might expect a cultural Renaissance that would make even Leonardo’s naked Vitruvian Man blush. T-shirts would implore us to “Bring back the aether” while religious bumper stickers proclaim, “Get in touch with your inner archetype!” The full intersecting circles of the Vescia Piscis would suddenly appear in place of just the fish part on all those Suburbans. Even Einstein’s “everything is relative” would sound tired, replaced instead by Pythagoras’ “everything is proportional.” Fashion would explode with “sacred geometry” and Egyptian styles could make a comeback. The idea that an archetypal structure in space actually shapes flowers, insects, fish, birds, pets and people would be irresistible and, I think, difficult to suppress once the meme was released."

Dancing Flowers


When the grace of the Master shines we recognize

How God's light shines bright like the sun,

Kundalini stretches high dancing to meet her Lord.

Singing golden orbs a body of light pulsing,

like a flower reaching to the sky!

World Shift - cliff notes of Erwin Laszlo's new book


Erwin Laslo has written a new book called "Quantum Shift in the Global Brain" which was summarized in a recent article on Reality Sandwich

Here's the entire text - I agree!

"The production of essential biological and physical resources has already peaked. Forests, species of fish, and coral reefs are damaged and disappearing, soils are impoverished by overcropping and by chemicals; diversity is reduced by genetic manipulation. More than half the world’s population faces water shortages whilst climate change threatens to make much of the planet unsuited for food production and habitation.

With this comes growing insecurity within and between countries, and greater propensity to resort to terrorism and war. Fundamentalism and fanaticism are spreading and the gap is widening between rich and poor. Eighty percent of the world’s wealth belongs to one billion people while the rest is shared by five-and-a-half billion. One in three urban dwellers live in slums, shantytowns and urban ghettoes.

We have consumed more of the planet’s resources in the six decades since World War II than in all of history before. We produce more waste than the environment can absorb, and extract more resources than the biosphere can regenerate. This is not sustainable. In regard to food, for example, we know how much is sustainable: it is the produce of 4.2 acres of land for each person. But the average today is seven acres (and would be far more if the poorest countries would not have an untenably small footprint).

If we continue in this way famine and frustration will fuel terrorism and trigger wars. The delicate balance of our global interdependence will be torn apart. In the ensuing global collapse no country, no population will be spared. Hamlet’s famous question, to be or not to be, has become extremely timely. The question is not whether we need to change in order to be. To survive on this planet we need to change. Sooner or later we will want to change. But when we do, will there still be time to change?

Gandhi said: ‘Be the change you want to see in the world’. How can you do that? First of all, get rid of old thinking and the values and beliefs that support it. As Einstein said, you can’t solve a problem with the same kind of thinking that produced the problem. When we shed obsolete beliefs and adopt new thinking, we change our values and our thinking and change ourselves. In these critical times that change can be the “butterfly” that triggers a storm. It could spread far and wide, and in the end it could change the world.

New thinking is not utopian or unprecedented; it is already emerging at the creative edge of society. In a number of “alternative cultures” people think and act in a more positive way. They share two fundamental beliefs. One is that the ancient saying “we are all one” is not just fiction but has roots in reality. This is borne out in the latest developments in the sciences: subtle but real signals and energies connect all particles in the cosmos and all living things in the biosphere. The second belief regards the sphere of human responsibility. If we are truly connected with each other and with nature, our responsibilities do not end with ourselves, our family, our country and our company; they encompass the entire human community and the whole of the biosphere. Living up to these wider responsibilities is not charity; it is solid common sense. If we are part of humanity, and humanity is part of life on the planet, what we do to others and to nature we do also to ourselves.

A living species can cope with changes in its environment—up to a point. When those changes accumulate, the stress reaches a critical point and the species dies out unless, of course, it mutates. In relatively simple systems critical points lead to breakdown. In more complex systems these critical points are tipping points: they can go one way or another. They do not lead inevitably to breakdown, they can also lead to breakthrough.

In 1989 a group of East German refugees crossed the iron curtain to Austria. For the communist world of Eastern Europe that was the tipping point. In a matter of weeks the Communist-bloc countries seceded from the Soviet Union, and less than a year later the Soviet Union and its Republics had ceased to exist, transforming—not without crisis and turbulence—into more open societies.

Modern civilization itself arose out of the cultural mutations of the Renaissance and the Enlightenment. The new culture was shaped by the belief in the power of reason and the development of a materialistic and mechanistic view of the world. Today, however, in our age of global information, communication, interdependence and social and environmental stress, the mechanistic-materialistic worldview has become obsolete and counterproductive. Its view of the world has been transcended in the sciences, but the technologies it generates and the behaviours it inspires are with us still.

The civilization that dominates the contemporary world is no longer sustainable: if it is not to breakdown, it must transform. We must create a civilization that enables six-and-a-half billion people to live with dignity, in harmony with each other and with nature. The Worldshift from a civilization based on materialistical and mechanistic short-term thinking to one based on integral thinking and longer and wider horizons is possible. We have the knowledge, the technologies, and the necessary human and financial resources. The presently marginal global-thinking alternative cultures could become the mainstream. When a critical mass of people changes its values and priorities, the leadership catches on, and the world itself will change.

It may well be that the global tipping point will come as soon as the end of 2012, the much prophesied watershed in humanity’s tenure on the planet. It will certainly come within the lifetime of most of us. Whenever it comes, we must begin to change now, to ensure that it is not a prelude to breakdown, but a breakthrough to a truly peaceful and sustainable world."

Global telepathy training wheels - the internet? McLuhan's Inspiration from 39 years ago.

This quote is from an interview of Marshall McLuhan published in Playboy March of 1969.

In it McLuhan points to the promise that the a global technology driven consciousness shift.

I believe he was understanding the noospheric potential of the internet. I think it is a collective consciousness training wheels.

MCLUHAN: Let me help you. Tribal man is tightly sealed in an integral collective awareness that transcends conventional boundaries of time and space. As such, the new society will be one mythic integration, a resonating world akin to the old tribal echo chamber where magic will live again: a world of ESP. The current interest of youth in astrology, clairvoyance and the occult is no coincidence. Electric technology, you see, does not require words any more than a digital computer requires numbers. Electricity makes possible--and not in the distant future, either--an amplification of human consciousness on a world scale, without any verbalization at all.

Q: Are you talking about global telepathy?

MCLUHAN: Precisely. Already, computers offer the potential of instantaneous translation of any code or language into any other code or language. If a data feedback is possible through the computer, why not a feed-forward of thought whereby a world consciousness links into a world computer? Via the computer, we could logically proceed from translating languages to bypassing them entirely in favor of an integral cosmic unconsciousness somewhat similar to the collective unconscious envisioned by Bergson. The computer thus holds out the promise of a technologically engendered state of universal understanding and unity, a state of absorption in the logos that could knit mankind into one family and create a perpetuity of collective harmony and peace. This is the real use of the computer, not to expedite marketing or solve technical problems but to speed the process of discovery and orchestrate terrestrial--and eventually galactic--environments and energies. Psychic communal integration, made possible at last by the electronic media, could create the universality of consciousness foreseen by Dante when he predicted that men would continue as no more than broken fragments until they were unified into an inclusive consciousness. In a Christian sense, this is merely a new interpretation of the mystical body of Christ; and Christ, after all, is the ultimate extension of man.

Q: Isn't this projection of an electronically induced world consciousness more mystical than technological?

MCLUHAN: Yes--as mystical as the most advanced theories of modern nuclear physics. Mysticism is just tomorrow's science dreamed today.

Global Coherence Project


The Global Coherence Project is a science-based initiative uniting millions of people in heart-focused care and intention, to shift global consciousness from instability and discord to balance, cooperation and enduring peace.

This project has been launched by the Institute of HeartMath®, a nonprofit 501(c)(3), a recognized global leader in researching emotional physiology, heart-brain interactions and the physiology of optimal health and performance.

The Global Coherence Project is designed to help individuals and groups work together, synchronistically and strategically to increase the impact of their efforts to create positive global change.

Together we will:

* Increase personal coherence for the benefit of ourselves and the planet
* Help shift the planetary consciousness baseline from self-centeredness to wholeness care
* Increase connection and social harmony
* Empower our ability to navigate through global changes with less stress and more ease
* Empower environmental responsibility and stewardship of the planet


This project has been initiated because millions of people sense that this is an extraordinary time; that a paradigm shift of human consciousness is now under way; that we are at the crossroads of change and must move toward the healing of ourselves and our planet. Many people are feeling a strong desire to help change our present and future conditions and are looking for ways to use their heart, spirit-aligned wisdom and care to make a meaningful difference.

The Global Coherence Project is one of many care and compassion initiatives taking place on the planet. Each year, an increasing number of groups and online communities are radiating compassion and care to the planet in these times of need. We and others feel that these collective heart-based initiatives, rather than being a trend, represent the proactive consciousness platform of the future, in which individuals and communities take responsibility for shaping a new world by increasing love, care and compassion for the global whole.

Heart Coherence

Many people recognize that their meditations, prayers, affirmations and intentions can and do affect the world. Researchers suggest that these activities can have even more transformative and lasting impact by adding heart coherence to the process. Heart coherence is a distinct mode of synchronized psycho-physical functioning associated with sustained positive emotion. It is a state of energetic alignment and cooperation between heart, mind, body and spirit. In coherence, energy is accumulated, not wasted, leaving you more energy to manifest intention and harmonious outcomes.

Adding heart coherence to meditation, prayer and intention practices is an important aspect of the Global Coherence Project. It adds order and increased effectiveness to whatever form of practice you are doing.

The Global Coherence Project offers education and technology on how to increase individual heart coherence. As groups of people in the Global Coherence community intentionally send coherent love and care to the world, a more powerful heart-filled environment is created. This helps to build a reservoir of positive energy that benefits the planet. This reservoir can then be utilized to help bring balance and stabilization to people, thereby making it easier to find solutions to problems like climate change, the destruction of the rain forests, poverty, war, hunger and other global issues. In addition, by sending coherent heart energy to the planet, you benefit personally. Practicing coherence has a carryover effect that helps to cushion you through stressors and challenges that occur day to day."
