"Fully Present" (Part Three)

Transcending the Human Experience Into the Divine

By Lauren Zimmerman

            The initial phase of the concept that we are “outward expressions” of the Divine and aspects of God/Creator is easy for many of us to accept.  We can stand back and view the possibility that God/Creator created us in His/Her image and then sent us out into existence for one reason or another.  But that’s not the way it truly is and each of us, in our hearts, knows that.  Much of the unsettled, seeking feeling that we carry deep within ourselves is our quest to find and live the real Truth of who we are in union with God/Creator.
            The next phase of how we are inter-laced with God/Creator is not quite as easy for most people.  It is to accept that we are actual, physical expressions of God/Creator and that somewhere within us is the ability to be Divine and powerful and all-knowing.  To achieve this expression of ourselves requires a complex and sometimes confusing path of overcoming issues and beliefs, and healing mental and emotional wounds.  We tell ourselves that if it was true that we are actually aspects of God/Creator, we would be living different lives.  We would be living the magic and miracles that we know are “out there” somewhere.  This phase of the concept might allow us to believe that, if we were “healed,” living this aspect of our Divinity would be true.
            The final aspect of the concept of Oneness is almost inconceivable to most of the human population.  That we are true expressions of God/Creator and are capable of expressing the power of the Divine in our daily lives is almost beyond comprehension.  The level of suffering, in all its myriad forms, acts as a perfect contradiction to what we are working to believe.  To believe that there is no healing or “fixing” necessary and that we are perfect just the way we are.  And yet this part of our quest for Oneness is what all Masters throughout time have told us is the Truth and will apply the ultimate success to our exterior world.
            One of the key issues with all of the above comments is the that all of these Truths can be thought of as a “concept.”  If we cannot embrace and live the Truth of the fact that we are Divine Beings, the entire subject remains a concept, a theory, and never becomes a reality that we live daily.  If we cannot become the Truth that we are Divine Expressions of God/Creator, we will remain seekers.  Seekers, by their very definition, never live the Truth but instead are always looking for the Truth.
            How then do we become Divine Expressions?  How do we step into the role of being capable of miracles, in charge of our own moments, and in such union and harmony with God/Creator that there is no separation and the truths and answers of existence are readily available to us 24/7?  How do we achieve that peace that is so pervasive that questions are not asked, suffering is not existent, and harmony with life is all that exists?
            One of the keys is to understand that our emotions and reactions determine what we do or do not believe.  We are, literally, captives of our own interpretation of what is or is not real.  As we alter our interpretation of existence and our place within it, our reality begins to change.  But we cannot simply believe in what we want our reality to change into.  We must know it and become it.  As long as it remains a concept, an ideal, or a goal, it will remain something we seek rather than something that we are.
            Allow for a moment the Truth that we create our own reality.  With the acceptance of this Truth, we come to realize just how powerful we are.  We are creating the entire “picture of reality” that is happening in every second of every day.  When we think about how much power that takes, it’s awe-inspiring.  Take the next step in your own thought process and accept that each of us are generating that power, albeit subconsciously. 
            What is it that drives us to create the seconds, the moments, the events that make up our lives?  Our emotional interpretation and reaction to what we are creating.  Thoughts are generated by our emotional interpretation and reaction.  Thoughts are the base of all things that are manifested. 
            There are two things to take note of when this level of understanding begins.  One is that we are our thoughts, meaning that, however subconscious they may be, our thoughts create the world around us.  The second thing to understand is that we live in an energetic reality.  We are surrounded by energy.  We are energy.  And energy impacts/affects energy.  The thought forms of all people on Earth reside in the energetic field of Earth that we live in.  If we do not, as individuals, understand and take charge of our own energy and thought-formed-reality, we are at the mercy of the energy that exists in the world around us.
            What that means is that, if we do not control and manage our own thought-based-reality the energetic thoughts of other people, possibly even people we do not know, will manage our reality for us.  For example, a friend who lives across town wants you to comply with his wishes and join him on a bike tour.  You don’t really want to go.  He emits a strong and constant energetic thought form that you will change your mind and go along with his wishes.  You find yourself vacillating as his thought form/wish continues to enter your energy field.  If he is persistent enough, and you are not steadfast in maintaining the integrity of what you do or do not want, his energetic thought form will cause you to help him manifest his wishes by your sudden but reluctant agreement to go along with his desires.
            For centuries, Earth-reality has operated under the direction of energetic thought-forms.  Unfortunately, it long ago reached the point of, when something could not be achieved by thought, it was achieved by force.  At gunpoint, knifepoint, or via some other weapon, humans force their will upon others.  This terribly unfortunate turn of human events not only instilled fear of reality but is one of the reasons why Universal Understanding of Energy is now called for.  Though it is, at first, a difficult task to be responsible and aware of each thought we form, with practice it can become as commonplace as breathing.  It becomes second nature to achieve the state of awareness that assists us in realizing what we are or are not manifesting with our thoughts and reactions.
            Going back to the original point … when we allow the Truth of our own Divinity and Soul-Union to become the Truth we live, our perceptions, reactions, emotions, and interpretations change automatically.  We begin to think with an expanded awareness and point of view.  We begin to understand that nothing and no one is separate from us or from the Divine Source.  We begin to live in a constant state of forgiveness and understanding, as well as a harmonious surrender to the process of our Soul expressing through our physical life experiences.  We begin to operate from a base of pure trust and faith.  As we trust that we are expressions of Soul and Divinity, we learn to trust ourselves and to know that the reality/experiences we are creating are purposeful and have a major contribution to give to our Soul’s learning experience.
As long as the fact that we are expressions of Divine Source remains a concept, or a thought outside of ourselves, we remain separated from the Truth we seek to live.  Reality manifests from the thoughts and energies we generate from within.  As long as we allow our reality to be formed by any energy outside ourselves, we are allowing the possibility of being impacted by something other than pure Truth.  The process of becoming Divine and living the Absolute is nothing more than learning to trust ourselves.  As Soul-expressions in human form, we learn that any distrust of Self that we’ve had previously was nothing more than a process we went through in order to get to the point of trusting ourselves.  In other words, life-experience is a process of understanding who and what we are and allowing that process to teach us trust and faith.

The process of becoming Soul in human form is far-reaching and
cannot be completely addressed in this small format.  The author
is currently working on the book (‘FULLY PRESENT’) that will address more
Soul-process topics .  If you would like to be informed when

"Fully Present" (Part Two)

Copyright, L. Zimmerman, 2011


(An article as well as a “lead-in” for a book by the
same name and author.) 
By Lauren Zimmerman

            Without realizing that we’re doing it, many of us are resisting the complete process of being Fully Present on Earth.  We read or hear the words that will direct us and assist us in the goal and yet, for various reasons, we have difficulty absorbing and expressing the full Truth of who we are into the very essence of our being.
            What we’re returning to, in returning to being Fully Present, is an energetic form that is a balance of spiritual and physical and a full presentation of who we truly are being expressed through our physical forms.  The energetic essence of who we are “becoming” (in actuality, who we are returning to) allows us to rise above the mental and emotional barriers of our physical presence on Earth. 
There are many reasons for the past “dis-allowance” of physically expressing the Truth of who we are.  Centuries ago the energetic grids that encompass the Earth-plane were altered by entities who were not originally from Earth.  Their purpose was to control and benefit from the Earth and those who had incarnated here.  One of the grid overlays that was placed has since been identified as a mind-control grid.  Unfortunately, between the time this grid was placed and this present time, there have been Earth-incarnated beings who have participated in keeping this grid in place.  However, throughout the last fifty years or so, this grid has been heavily impacted by many who are on Earth as well as many from higher dimensions.  The work that’s been done to reduce its influence on Earth-reality has greatly reduced its impact upon us.  The work to dissolve the influence of this grid continues and, without doubt, this energetic mind-control grid will be eliminated completely over time.  The more people on Earth who focus on expressing their complete Truth and personal power and wisdom, the less effective this grid will become.
Because the energy of this grid overlaid the energy of the complete Earth, it had a significant impact on the human expression of personal power and sovereignty.  In addition, intangible, energetic “veils” were placed in the physical energy field of almost all humans on Earth.  These veils served to keep us from our Truths.  Now, with the current evolutionary process and the incredible amount of work being done from all levels of existence, these veils are being energetically dissolved.
Because of the build-up over centuries from those who would wish us to be “dis-empowered,” most human energy fields are “clogged” with energies that negate the Truth and Divine Union that is the ultimate goal in the quest to evolve and empower ourselves.  However, higher dimensional energies are pouring into Earth’s energy field at a pace never before experienced on Earth.  With the right amount of focus and intention, these energies can be called upon to assist each individual’s efforts to overcome all influences outside of oneself and facilitate the understanding of how each person can empower him or herself.
It’s been said many times by many people … we are spiritual beings having a human experience.  This fact alone is a key factor in altering one’s thought process and accepting the higher Truths.  When we alter our thought process, basically adopting the opposite thought process of what we’ve been taught to believe throughout the last century, we begin to encourage the process of Divine Union and being Fully Present.  It’s not enough to read and understand the concept of expressing full Truth.  It is crucial to become that full Truth.  To become that full Truth means that any thought or belief that negates, or appears to negate, that we are great and powerful Souls has to necessarily be dealt with and overcome.  The healing of all thoughts and beliefs that cause a person to think that they are anything less than supreme expressions of God/Creator is the avenue through which one learns to become Fully Present.
Overcoming a lifetime of believing that we are at the mercy of the world around us seems like a daunting task.  It isn’t.  Each of us has within us the ability to become our Truth.  But as we focus our attention on removing the veils that hide us from Truths, the energetic influences from outside ourselves, and the process of healing the dichotomy between what appears to be real and what is actually real, the challenges increase.  As individuals who are manifesting a reality outside of ourselves in order to discover the absolute power and Truth within, we place obstacle after obstacle along our path in order to gain strength and wisdom.  Often it appears that the more we dedicate our lives to becoming Truth, the more the exterior world tosses into our lives to prove that we’re barking up the wrong tree.  With all of this can come the desire to admit defeat, to turn back to the lives we once knew, to turn our backs on the difficulties that go along with the reaching of the goal in order to achieve some kind of peace.  But just when we feel the most defeated is when we should take a deep breath and take the next step.  The more defeated we feel, the closer we are to our goal.
The above statement would seem to be one of the greatest dichotomies and apparent lies that we tell ourselves.  But what is actually occurring is a Universal Process of what can be an extremely difficult task.  That is the task of “erasing” the world behind us as we take a step further into “the void.”  The void is where all new things are created.  A void is empty of energy, which leaves it a place where new energy, ideas, realities, and manifestations can be birthed.  If we do not “erase” the energy of what was, by transmuting and healing it as we proceed, we are re-creating a “new” reality with the old energy.  In other words, we are re-creating the same reality we’ve been living in for the last century.  It may appear different at first but, because it has a foundation of the old, it will, eventually, take on the old form/appearance.
Returning to the above statement about defeat, the explanation is this.  The “old reality” will almost always fight for its right to exist and resist the changes we attempt to make.  In actuality, as we push for the birth of a new reality, the old reality is fighting for its life.  It is “dying.”  Dying often has the energy/interpretation of defeat.  The closer we are to giving birth to the new, the closer the old is to “dying.”  Again, in actuality, nothing is dying.  Everything is healing and transforming.  As energy lets go of its original form and intent, it feels like a death.  But … all death is actually new birth.
Being Fully Present is a matter of healing all energy that has held us within the belief that we are powerless.  Being Fully Present is a matter of allowing the greatest essence of who we are to enter our physical energy fields in such a way that we are healed into being the best that we can be.  It’s our Soul’s “birthright” to express itself fully.  By dedicating our lives to the full expression of Soul, each of us will be making a significant impact on changing Earth-reality from a place where suffering and inequality exist into a place where Souls can express the great beauty of the never-ending union of each individual with the Presence of Creator God.

FULLY PRESENT will be presented, with many variations,

in book form when it’s completed.  At this time, however,

the author would like to share small but significant bits

 of wisdom that will help each reader accept the Truth

of who they are and where we, as a world-society, are going.

"Fully Present"

Copyright, L. Zimmerman, 2011
Lauren Zimmerman


(An article as well as the “lead-in” for a book by the same name and author.)  
By Lauren Zimmerman

            During the days of Lemuria, the veils between worlds and various realities were not present.  The veils that were placed in the human energy field between then and now have served to dilute, obscure, and/or entirely hide the Truth.  Before the veils were placed, before the energetic grids that contain the energy of Earth were altered, the human species was free.  We are working to return to that freedom.  The illusion is that we ever lost it in the first place.
            We gave our power and freedom and access to the Truth away.  We are in the process of reclaiming it.  Each person is free to claim all or part of his/her Truth.  Or to reject all or part.  The ultimate goal and freedom most people seek, whether it is consciously understood or accepted, is to be fully present on Earth.  To achieve this goal requires a union of body, personality, ego, spirit, Soul, and the Presence of God/Creator.  Within this union lies the Truth of who we are, our purpose for being, and the peace we seek within ourselves and within our interaction with life on Earth.  All events not based upon and expressing the harmony of this ultimate Union, which contains our personal Knowing of the Truth and our personal peace, are events we are creating, tools we are using, in order to understand, accept, and achieve the union of all aspects of Self and the expression of being Fully Present.
Ego, personality, and the emotions and judgments we form are “tools” we, as spirit and Soul, manifest in order to challenge ourselves to rise above the illusion that we are anything other than divine expressions of the Creator.  Each human experience is yet another avenue through which we have the opportunity to interact with ourselves and the seen and unseen world in order to learn what it is within ourselves that would allow us to believe that we are out of control of our circumstances.  Even the most dire circumstances are opportunities we manifest subconsciously in order to accelerate our progress toward the Divine Union of all that we are.
            At this time in Earth’s history, the energies and grids of Earth are being impacted intensely by energies and entities beyond our vision and conscious awareness.  These incoming energies are impacting each of us as individuals and Souls.  Our bodies, thought processes, and emotions are responding to the pressure of these higher dimensional energies.  As more higher dimensional energy impacts the denser energy we’ve been living in, the pressure and friction of the conflicting energies causes the denser energy to release.  What occurs from the interaction are bodily aches and pains, emotional turmoil, and “re-visitation” of old emotional wounds and reactions.  Every issue that is rising to the surface is an opportunity to react, feel, and interpret things differently.  From a higher dimensional place of being, each one of us would respond differently to the situations we’ve lived through.  From a higher dimensional place of being, each of us understands what it is we, as Soul, wanted to gain from that situation and that place of understanding brings us to a different emotional response.
            Emotions are a critical tool of learning. As critical as they are, it’s important to pay close attention and to learn as much as possible from them.  However, it’s equally as important to maintain power and control over emotional reactions, thoughts, and judgments.  Because they are as powerful as they are, emotions can control our thoughts and lives.  Many of us, in fact, make choices and decisions based upon our emotional responses, which makes it even more imperative to understand the foundation of each emotion.  If life choices are made from an emotional base, it’s easy to see why it would be important to have control over an emotional response/reaction. 
One of the most significant keys to learning how to use emotions as an evolutionary tool is to study the energetic flow.  All emotions have a “direction,” a “flow,” of energy.  In order to be contained, rather than erratic and uncontrolled, most of us subconsciously and instinctively contain our emotional energy in a spiral-like “funnel” or “tube.”  Spiraling energy (circling energy) is either clockwise or counter-clockwise.  Imagine a person standing inside a continually-spinning spiral of energy.  If the energy is circling counter-clockwise, the energy is spinning downward.  If the energy is spinning clockwise, the energy is spinning upward.  Because our intention is to heighten the vibration of our energy fields, thus moving us into a higher vibrational way of being, it stands to reason that having emotional energy spin clockwise would be advantageous.  Counter-clockwise energy and emotion keeps us, as the saying goes, in a tailspin. 
When we are locked into an emotional response that is painful, we successfully lock ourselves away from the answers that can generate peace and higher awareness.  Throughout history we have looked to friends, relatives, co-workers, etc. to help us find answers.  The answers have been “tangible” and 3-D-based.  With the movement of Earth-society into a higher vibrational way of being, more and more of the answers we seek are not tangible and will not be found in 3-D.  We, as a society, are asking to become a more spiritually evolved race.  It stands to reason that the solutions we used to count upon will no longer be as effective.  Spirituality will begin to be a more and more solid place to look for answers.  In actuality, all of the answers were always within the realm of spiritual understanding.  It is only now becoming evident to some of us on Earth that this is a realm that we can trust.  All others will follow the same path to trust and understanding, at their own pace.
This being said, the answer to the question many Light Bearers are asking …Why isn’t this working anymore? … is exactly that.  As we accept and merge the Truth that we are higher dimensional beings interacting within a denser, lower vibrational energy, we are asking for the answers of Truth, not the answers that are temporary, 3-D illusionary answers and “fixes.”  If we are to succeed at manifesting a “new world,” a higher vibrational energetic way of interacting with a 3-D reality, we have to be willing to let go of what we believed to be true and reliable and accept the “intangible” reality of spiritual awareness and Knowing.
Which leads us to the question of faith.  What is it to live in absolute faith?  What is it to be led by “blind faith?”  Who or what are we having faith in?  Is it God/Creator?  Or is it ourselves?  Or is it a Divine Union between ourselves and God/Creator?  To be Fully Present, it’s the last.  And it’s ourselves we have to trust implicitly before we will allow ourselves to create this Union.  We are in the process of evolving, which is another way of saying … we are in the process of loving, accepting, understanding, and trusting ourselves.  Until we do this, we’re going to believe that we’re not worthy of this Union … when in fact … we were never unworthy.  It was all a part of the “master illusion” we created.  And now we’re in the process of un-creating that illusion and creating a new one for ourselves.
Or should I say … returning to the old illusion we left behind when we entered into this one?

FULLY PRESENT will be presented, with many variations, in book form when it’s completed.

The Journey to Self-Discovery

“The journey to God
is actually
a journey in self-discovery. 
There is no greater way to find out
who you are and who you are not
than the path of discovering
how much faith you have ~~ or do not have.”

“What if you were to reduce all that you know,
or think you know,
to one Truth ~~
that Truth being love.
What if you were to reduce
your entire experience to a new beginning,
one single point,
where all things were conceived as love,
and all things are perceived as love only,
without specific details to any event or person?
In other words, what if you were
to re-interpret your life experience,
with only one Knowing ~~
that Knowing being only universal love.
If all you knew was love and nothing more,
would you perceive and understand your life
and your life-lessons differently?”

Today's Quote

It's been a while since I've written here .. and a LOT has happened during that time.  One of my favorite things to offer is inspirational quotes, and I have many (many-many).  That being said, I'm thinking that I may use this blog (or create another one), to share some of these quotes.  Here's today's...........

"Humankind will not 'win' its way into a new reality by fighting with the old one.  It will 'win' its way into a new reality by surrendering to the Truths of that new reality."

An Exchange With Commander Korton

It was a rare moment to sit with Commander Korton, quietly talking in the control room.  I doubt I could have been any more content.

The huge expanse of the Universe drifted mutely outside the large bank of windows above the control panel.  The screens above the windows flashed with every scene imaginable, and many that were not.  He sat on my right, comfortably relaxed, his small foot resting on the footrest below the panel.  Looking at that small foot, I again noticed that it very much resembled the shape of a small garden trowel.  There was something touching about that.  It was so rare to see him so comfortable and uninvolved in the activities of the great craft that I simply took a moment to study him.  When the love I had for him threatened to spill over into tears, I turned away.

"The people have a lot of questions," I murmured.

"I would imagine they do."

"One person wrote to ask why the craft can't be seen by the people on Earth."

"That's a simple one.  All things are energy, including the craft, and all energy has a frequency, a vibration.  You can tell her that it's similar to a dog whistle.  People can't hear it, but dogs can.  Because of the frequency of the sound.  It's the same with this.  If you're not in tune with this frequency, you won't see or hear us.  Unless we want you to, that is."

I smiled slightly, hearing his droll sense of humor behind his words. 

"Actually, while we're on the subject, you can tell her that it's the same with dimensional realities.  Every dimension has a vibrational frequency.  The thing that keeps the dimensions separate from one another is the vibrations themselves.  But, like you, when you learn to alter your vibration, your frequency, to be compatible with frequencies other than your own, you're, how do they say, in like flint?

I had to chuckle.  He was in a rare mood indeed.  In like Flint?  Where had he heard that?

He suddenly looked up at one of the screens.  Studying it for a second, he leaned forward, adjusted a gauge of some kind, and leaned back, still studying the scene that was going on.

"Exactly what is all of that, that we're seeing?"

"Activity that's going on within the Universe.  Any environment where free will reality is supported."

I was surprised.  "Really?  That's utterly cool!"  The idea of those on Earth some day realizing, or should I say accepting, that life on Earth was the do-all, end-all of intelligent life within the Universe delighted me.  What if the scenes playing out above us could suddenly, somehow, take over television sets all over the planet.  We could call it, oh, maybe, Day of Awakening.  Or maybe Day of Reckoning.

I could feel Commander Korton studying me.  His gaze felt like a warm, fluid energy moving over me.  I glanced at him and he shook his head at me, as though I amused him.

"You have such a liquid mind," he said.


"Perhaps nimble would be a better word.  You leap from one possibility to another like a deer across an empty green pasture.  But they're not just thoughts.  They're like change-everything-in-existence-in-a-single-moment thoughts."  He shook his head again, clearly amused at me.

"I like change," I murmured, in my own defense.

"The only constant is change and so it's good that you like it.  However, you always want to look closely at your reason for wanting change.  If desire comes from discontent, then it suggests resistance to the experience.  Resistance to any experience is resistance to the understandings to be gained from the experience.  On the other hand, if you desire change because you wish to see more and more possibilities flow into a constrained space, then you're much more in tune with the Universal Will of Expansion, existence morphing itself."

For a moment that, I know, made time stand still, our eyes met.  Our spirits moved through the small space between us and, just for that brief second, I was he and he was I.  Our time together, and actually all time, all exchange, was existence morphing itself. 

It was a lot to take in.  It was a lot to love.  It was about to change my life.  And I knew it.

False Reality

"One event can create a false reality.  False realities are built upon your emotional and intellectual perception (judgment) of an event.  Understand though that the event could have been a falsehood unto itself. 

This is how false realities are born.  This is how suffering thrives.  Souls suffer when they stray from their own Known and Universal Truths.

Earth-life 'pretends' to enforce a separation from your personal Truths in order for you to learn how to always find your way back to our own Truths, despite the strength of the illusion."

"S--t We Tell Ourselves and S--t We Listen To From Everyone Else"

(© nLight Press, 2011:  A blog but also an upcoming book, currently in the works)

On Monday there was an article splashed all over the planet about how eating eggs will kill you.  On Wednesday there was an article splashed all over the planet about eggs being the 'savior food,' the best thing imaginable for the human body.

The reason this 'conflict,' and every other one like it, can be perpetrated upon Humanity as a whole, is because we allow it.  We are so unsure within ourselves that we eagerly look for any clue, through any avenue, to tell us what to do and what to think.

If we take a minute to think, instead of just 'eat' and absorb what the 'information avenues' are feeding us, we would probably be appalled at how illogical things really are.  It's our own refusal to live in our own power, our own refusal to trust our own truths, that allows our lives to be manipulated.  If we don't trust ourselves, in the full capacity of our own role in creating this reality, then this reality will manipulate us, twist us into knots, confuse us, and generally make us crazy with trying to figure out what's true and what's not.  The reason so many people are so incredibly uncomfortable is because the desire to fit in, to go along with 'the norm,' to desire to be accepted .. and accepting, is the main priority of life.

The only reason everything going on here on Earth has the power to mess us up is because we allow it.  We allow it because we don't believe in ourselves.  We don't trust ourselves.  Our natural instincts, intuition, and wisdom have been dumbed down by our passive submission to the influx of information that everyone else chooses to lay out in front of us.

The whole point I'm going to make is not about people standing up and dying their hair purple with green stripes in order to make a statement that they are individuals, not tied to the reality everyone else is weaving.  The point I'm going to make is that we are infinite souls, capable of creating entire realities, and this moment in time is the challenge we've set for ourselves.  The reason everyone knows (or suspects) that we are infinite beings, but that we still can't get a handle on our own reality, is that we don't know how to trust ourselves.

Let's just take this one concept:  you need to go into your internal silence to listen to your own wisdom.  That's where you'll find your Truth.  The next suggestion is:  you need to find a community and become a part of that.  If everyone is of like-mind, your Truths will be found there.

Is it any wonder that we're a confused society?  Is it logical to admit that we ourselves are the ones allowing the confusion?  Our distrust of self, and our belief that we are separate from our own truth, wisdom, infinity, and Creator / Origin is an open door to chaos.  Is chaos 'bad?'  No.  Nothing is 'bad.'  Everything is an avenue of learning, no matter how much we may dislike that avenue.  On the other hand, does there come a time when we decide that it's time to actually learn, rather than keep the lesson going?  Absolutely.  Maybe that time is now.

What set me on this path, this quest, was the life-changing event of having 'reality' disappear entirely ... in less than a nano-second.  One second I was in a solid, tangible,
3-D world, the next second it did not exist.  (For more information, see the blog-page regarding 'life after death')   If that can happen .. and it most definitely did .. then where is this world?  Where are we exactly?  How can this world be tangible and real and yet simultaneously non-existent?  And if it is something we ourselves are 'designing,' then that simple fact points to the reality that we can change that design.  But if we're going to change it, it's necessary to first understand what we're doing, why we're doing it, and how to change things in a way that more accurately supports our truth and allows for a more harmonious, less confused state of being.

The Viewing Room

(continued from previous blog

Instead of answering me directly, Commander Korton turned and walked toward the door, sending me a mental message to follow him.  We turned right, leaving the still, silent air of the crew quarter's hallways.  Passing through what I call the "ion cleanser," we turn left into one of the main hallways that lead to the control room.  Before we reach it, the Commander touches my elbow gently, urging me to turn toward a small doorway on my right.  This is what I call the 'viewing room.'  It's been a while since I've been here. 

The room is small and windowless.  It's more brightly lit than any of the other rooms I've visited.  A waist-high shelf takes up three of the four walls.  Devices that look similar to computer screens are placed strategically around the room.  Above the lower shelf is a much more narrow shelf.  Various gauges and other mysterious-looking devices flank each other along this shelf.  But there are many more 'containers' than devices.  The best description I can give of their physical appearance is that they look similar to the plastic cases that VHS tapes come in.

Hearing the Commander's thoughts, I sit down in the first chair on my left, facing a blank 'computer screen.'  Reaching above me to manipulate several controls, Korton activates the screen in front of me.  The history of Earth comes alive on the screen, but it's shown as energy.  Pure chaotic energy.  Looking like nothing that can accurately be described in Earth-terms and so let's just say, well, it looks like a total mess.

But I've been here before and so I know that, if I wait patiently, beneath the chaos of energy streaking every which way, the actual events will begin to show themselves.  I feel the Commander's hand on my shoulder and feel the press of great compassion pouring through him into me. 

"For most of Earth's history, since the agreement to allow human life to occupy the planet, chaos has reigned, as you know."  His words rang in my heart as well as my mind.  "And as you also know, there are no accidents within existence.  All was as it was meant to be.  Earth played the part that it did, allowing souls to manifest and test all manner of cause and effect, as well as themselves.  And they did it well."  I felt the wryness drip around those last words.

"However," he continued, "with Earth moving into a different energetic role within the Universe, it becomes necessary to shift the reality that it will support."

I turned from the screen and studied his eyes.  I knew what he was about to say.

"There is much talk on Earth about change, evolution, ascension, and other such things.  There is much speculation.  And there are many questions.  But as many lengthy conversations as there are, the deep realization of what needs to take place has not yet been addressed.  Or accepted," he added quietly.  "Reality, as it has been, cannot continue.  The true level of surrender, of hanging on to a manmade reality, has not yet been accepted as a Truth."

 He studied me solemnly.  "Souls are incarnating on Earth at this time for a myriad of reasons.  But one of those reasons takes precedence over all of the others.  That reason is coming to understand the true meaning of surrender, of surrendering to the oneness of All That Is, of being a unit of energy within a matrix of existence.  Acting independently, without regard for the cause and effect of one's actions, is going to have to become a thing of the past.  Earth's energetic destiny within the Universe will not support a lack of Universal Harmony in the future.  It cannot.  It's that simple."

The ramifications of what he was saying were not lost on me.  I'd been thinking about the impact of Humankind's chaos upon everything around it for most of my life.  All things being energy.  And energy having no boundaries.  How could the chaos continue without severe consequences at some point in time?

With his hand still on my shoulder, he leaned around me to touch something on the 'computer screen.'  Something within me felt like existence completely stopped for just a split second.  It was like the chaos stopped, the Earth took a deep breath, nothing moved, nothing breathed.  As I watched, not breathing, mesmerized by the feeling of life stopping, the energy on the screen began to move again.  But it was entirely different.  It was as though everything had been reversed, like all that had ever been was suddenly spinning in a different direction.  I had the sense of some type of miraculous vacuum that was simply sucking all that had ever been into some unseen vortex where nothing would ever be seen again.

The Commander's words were like a waterfall of wisdom slowly running through my energy field.  "It is all well and good to create realities wherein cause and effect are studied.  But there comes a time when souls will completely immerse themselves in the effect.  Only then will they understand what they've caused."

He tapped the screen on the upper right corner.  The only word I have for the vision that took over the screen is 'nirvana.'  It felt like my entire infinite soul took a deep breath and relaxed after thousands upon thousands of years of effort.  The Universe floated silently, Earth gently cradled in its embrace.  Chaos was gone.  Understanding was born.  Universal Harmony was life.

I couldn't help but wonder what the time span was between the "universal pause" and the final result of harmony.

The Commander's Quarters

Having been given permission to enter Commander Korton's quarters long ago, I find myself seeking solace there often.  The entire exterior wall of his suite is the Universe that drifts silently outside.  The 'wall hangings' are whatever star system is passing by at the moment.  The entirety of the Universe can be felt in the room, like a reassuring blanket of eternity.

The hallways that lead to the crew members private areas are distant from the quiet workings of the rest of the craft.  If I were to stand in the control room and point in the direction of the rooms, I would point 'north-east.'  The Commander's suite is the first on the left, after turning right into the long hallway of suites.  To me, a sense of reverence fills these halls.  I suppose that comes from the crew members themselves; their dedication to serving The All That Is, their integrity, and their deep and eternal spiritual understanding of All That Is.  Each of them, to me, represents the epitome of spiritual integrity, which might be why I find myself hanging out there almost nightly.  I'm drawn like a moth to a flame, anxious to drink in all of the peace that they live as they quietly go about their work.

Often, when I find myself in need of a deeper perspective, a more quiet and fulfilling way of being, I find myself standing in front of the bank of windows in the Commander's rooms.  Because the 'windows' appear to be black (or non-existent), I have a sense of standing in the embrace of infinity.  The minutiae of the tiny, temporary life on Earth steps back and allows the real to enter my energy field.  Interestingly, I find the vast, never-ending vision of All fills me with an incredible sense of peace.

The rest of the quarters are dimly-lit, with the brief light in the rooms barely casting light off of the shiny black surfaces of the few pieces of 'furniture.'  To say that the entire scene looks surreal is probably a bit strange, considering everything, but that's what it is ... surreal.

Quite often Korton allows me my solace time alone there, communing with the silent Universe.  But today was different as I heard the faint whisper of the door open and close behind me.  As he always does when he approaches me, he moved to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with me.  I can actually feel his energy embrace me with his compassion and support.  It means everything to me that we call each other 'friend.'

His deep almond-shaped eyes moved across the scene in front of us.  The Earth was in the far-far distant left, a tiny ball of life that looked no larger than a tennis ball.  "The puzzle of it all must be quite burdensome at times," he murmured.

"From that perspective, yes."

"Which is why my spirit is so grateful that you embrace life without boundaries."  His reflection glimmered in front of me, echoing against the dark glass.  I thought I might have seen a tear in his eye.

"Compassion," he whispered.  And I knew exactly what he meant.

"Sharing with others, in the way that you feel called to do, is a great service that opens up the door of hope to so many.  Somewhere behind the veils of forgetting are the memories.  The more those memories get stirred, the more hope returns."  He turned toward me slightly.  "And we can agree that hope is a necessary commodity in the changing times."

"Indeed," I agreed instantly.  I hesitated, not wanting to voice the question that we both already knew I was there to ask.  "What happens next?"

Energy Frequency Room

Fully expecting to be ushered into one of the small medical rooms, I was surprised when we glided silently past.  Down a narrow corridor on our left, we moved along an utterly silent, dimly lit, hall and finally stopped in front of a small doorway.  It was the only door leading out of the long hallway.  A vague memory of having been there before stirred deep within me.  Suddenly a dozen or more mental goals that I've had for most of my life came rushing in simultaneously.  There were 'keys' behind the door.  Without doubt.

Without ceremony, Commander Korton leaned forward and pressed a keypad that I hadn't noticed.  The thin door slid open to reveal a room that is similar, in some ways, to an observatory.  But that's not an accurate description because the room has no windows.  There are periscope-like devices that apparently reach out to the exterior of the craft and somehow mysteriously bring the exterior into the small, narrow room.

The room could more accurately be described as a long, narrow hallway.  It is probably only eight feet in width. Both side walls house fairly narrow shelves with glass-like fronts.  Below the shelves are built-in desktops, mostly empty of anything sitting atop them.  The 'periscope-like' devices intrude into the room from the tall ceiling, spaced about ten feet apart.  There are four.

We stop beneath the first 'periscope.'  Commander Korton gestures for me to look more closely.  As I do, I see a series of geometrically designed grids built into the 'periscope' itself.  The shape appears to be diamond-shaped but the lines somehow seem to be bent, even as they appear to be straight.  Perhaps an optical illusion.  Perhaps a vibrational energy co-existence of some kind.

Suddenly I'm cast into a place of being that is the real truth.  Beyond all illusion, I am as one with the truth of existence.  There is no time.  I am in my past and in my future.  I am as one with the energy of existence.  From this perspective I see the energy frequency separations that cause the lack of awareness of all that is existence.  Wave frequencies act like undulating curtains, moving slightly with the energy of thought, but never dissipating entirely.  Like the 'shell' of an atom that keeps an atom in its form, the 'curtains' act as 'shells' that allow certain vibrational frequencies to be contained.  Within these 'containments,' various parts of existence can be delved into and explored minutely.

I am simultaneously inhabiting the minute Earth-form that is known as 'me' and the vast, beyond-boundaries essence of all that is within this existence.  A part of the vast me peers at the diamond-shaped grid within the 'periscope.'  I suddenly know that the reason the craft that is so firm and tangible to me and yet formless and invisible to others is due to the fact that they are bending light and sound frequencies.

The Medical Room & Dematerialization of the Human Body

As Commander Korton and I come out of the docking bay, we turn left.  Having been there so many times before, I know that several 'medical rooms' sit on the left, in this hallway.  Contrary to the thousands of reports of 'invasion of the human body,' I've experienced nothing but incredible healing here.

The rooms are meant for 'visitors' who come aboard.  The crew, for the most part, rarely need medical intervention.  As we glide toward the first of the rooms, my memory slides back to my first conscious visit to this room.  My 'psychic senses' had increased recently and I was well aware of the extraterrestrial presence of many from 'beyond.'  Knowing who they were, and why they were visiting me, I welcomed the experience when, during meditation, I suddenly found myself in a medical room aboard The Esartania.

Though the small ivory beings had little facial expression, I felt their compassion as though it was tangible.  The three in the room were ivory-skinned, thin, and had almond-shaped eyes.  The smallest of the three stepped forward and took my hand, helping me on to the silver table.  I watched, fully cognizant but unable to move as somehow I became nothing more than an energy field of cells separated by space.  The three began to move efficiently around the room, using various other-world devices to alter some of the cells.  I knew intuitively that they were changing the vibrational frequency in order to heal, or otherwise, improve the cells.  I watched, fascinated, as the tallest of the three came to the head of the table and began to work on my brain.  Again, I knew intuitively what he was doing.  I welcomed his intervention with gratitude, without any fear at all.

This brief story inspires me to tell another.  Somehow it seems to fit in with the truth that we are all cells separated by space, and we all have the power to de-materialize, should we decide to do so and know how to proceed.

I had, through a series of stunning events, landed in Payson, Arizona.  Not knowing the town, or anyone there, I took the first 'do-able' rental I found.  It was a tiny trailer, tucked into the back of a lot in a trailer park.  I don't recall exactly, but it couldn't have been much larger than a 20 foot.

It was late one night when I crawled into the tiny bed at the back of the trailer.  It was summer and so the small window on the side of the bed was open, the scent of Ponderosa pines filling the room and, I assumed, my dreams.  I felt, more than saw, the presence of light outside.  Logic told me that it was someone outside the window but as I focused, I realized that the light was above the tin roof of the place.  The light could not have been the moon.  The trailer was tucked beneath a canopy of trees.

I'm fairly certain I wasn't supposed to be aware of what happened next.  I've had many encounters where I've actually felt them deliberately erase my awareness or my memory.  But this time perhaps they were too busy to pay attention to the fact that I was watching every second of the experience.

The light, which turned out to be the most powerful and brilliant light I've ever seen, had a life of its own.  I watched as it 'disintegrated' the roof above me.  It entered my body and, as it did, I was dematerialized.  I found myself, once again, in one of the medical rooms.  This time their work included helping me get over the trauma of recent events.  They also worked on my brain.  I assumed, after the fact, that it was the purpose of more easily communicating with them.

Once again, I thought that I probably shouldn't have been aware of the process.  When they were finished with assisting me, somehow I was put back into this 'cylinder of light.'  I found myself floating through space, aware of the fact that my cells were scattered and in no way resembled a human body.  I felt myself come back down through the tin roof and watched in awe as this life-like light re-assembled me. 

And now I found myself gliding down the same hallway, passing the first medical room and headed to the second.  I couldn't help but wonder what was next.

Suspended In Time

After leaving the conference room, Commander Korton and I turned right in the dim hallway.  He indulged me as I stopped for a moment, caught by my intense emotions.

Built into the wall, in this hallway, is a bank of coffin-sized cubicles.  Bodies sleep, suspended in time.  The cubicles are fronted by what looks like tinted glass.  Each is dimly lit, about the wattage of a 15-watt bulb.  I'm aware that the environment inside the cubicles is closely controlled and monitored.  When the spirit is complete with the mission it's set for itself, outside the limitations of this particular body, it will return. 

Without volition, I flattened my palm against the side of one of the cubicles.  A mental message sent to the brave soul who was wandering.  A tear of compassion.  And we moved on.

We passed many doors without stopping but I was aware of activity all around.  Somehow everyone on this craft is busy, but silence in the work fills the air with a sense of deep peace.

We were not so much walking as gliding.  We passed through the hallway's ion booth and soon we were standing shoulder-to-shoulder on the deck overlooking the docking bay.  The scene below resembled the many fabled movies we've seen on Earth.  The area was about as large as four football fields.  Figures moved intently about their work.  A small scout ship sat near the closed bay doors.  Much further to the rear of the room, my attention was captured by a larger craft.  (The scout ships are small, fit for two to six occupants.)

What was there about that particular craft that held me so captive that I was immediately aware of every breath? 

Korton noticed my stare.  "It's not time for you to remember."  He touched my hand.  As the energy of his compassion rushed through every cell, he gently turned me away from the sight and urged me back into the dim hallway.  I knew where we were headed.  A small smile replaced the tears that I hadn't released.

The Morning Scene in the Conference Room

The day I was taken aboard a craft that is, literally, the size of the United States, was one of the most exhilarating days of my life.  As I entered the conference room with Commander Korton, the map spread out on the large table reminded me of one of the maps that I'd seen aboard the large craft, that I had since dubbed "the U.S. craft."  (Note:  many of the terms I use, such as 'table,' are to describe the other-worldly things in Earth terms, so as to make them easy to visualize.)

Commander Korton stepped to the table and rested his thin fingers on the edge.  He looked almost non-present, as though his thoughts had taken him elsewhere.  I found myself unable to follow his thoughts and so I waited, staring idly down at the map that turned out to be a map of this planet.

"It's funny to me how little people understand the concept of energy, and the truth that there are no boundaries for energy."

I knew what he was talking about, having tried to talk about the reality of what that really means for years.  I nodded in agreement.  "Very true," I murmured.  I gestured at the map.  "Things look much different here than there."

He nodded slightly.  "Earth is going to change.  Nothing can stop that.  Nor should it.  It's part of the eternal changes of existence.  It's the way it's meant to be."  He paused and then turned to study me intently.  "The energy of the Universe will, inevitably, impact the Earth.  But in addition to that, the energy of the Earth will impact the Universe."  His eyes pierced mine as his thoughts intensified.

Commander Korton is about 5' tall, rail-thin, with large almond-shaped eyes and ivory skin.  His presence, his essence, makes him seem twice as tall as he is.  He commands your attention simply by being.  I've seen entire gatherings of up to fifty attendees fall absolutely silent the instant he appears.  But the beyond-comprehension amount of love that he is, despite his commanding aura, always brings tears to my eyes.  I find myself reaching for the comfort of the link between us, no matter where I am.  And I always listen intently to every thought he gives me.

"Part of the change that is going to take place is being created out of necessity, due to the presence of Humankind and their use of that planet.  But I want to add that the fact that almost every human is going to take the planetary changes personally should not be lost on you," he said.

I was puzzled.  "What do you mean?"

"The lack of understanding what energy is all about, what life itself is all about, causes a very narrow vision of things.  With a narrow vision, a soul loses the bigger picture and becomes focused only upon self and events that impact self.  By doing so, narrow little realities are built.  Narrow little realities are the cause of 100% of mis-alignment of Universal Energies.  Mis-alignment of energies causes the rest of existence to, let us say, 'erupt.'  The Universe has to rearrange itself based upon the individual energies it has to absorb and adjust to.  Thus we have uncontrolled chaos.  

"Existence has controlled change, which some might perceive as chaos.  But, again, that relates back to the limited vision of things.  When a soul participates in a lifetime where great change is scheduled to occur, being aware of the bigger picture and bigger truths can eliminate much of the personal chaos and 'taking things personally' emotion that follows."

I studied the map for a second, thinking about what he said.  Earth certainly looked much different.  And I knew he had just given a great key / hint as to how to propel through the changes.
