The Thrive Movement

Yesterday I was looking through some social media posts I had saved for later and came across an article about ‘Linear chains of the body-mind.’ Which begins ‘Dr. Guiseppe Calligaris studied medicine, received the highest grades and obtained his medical degree in 1901 summa cum laude at the medical facility in Bologna for his pioneering dissertation titled, Thoughts Do Heal.’

The article said Calligaris conducted ‘research into the body-mind skin-reflex chains,’ that ‘for over thirty years, Calligaris examined thousands of individuals, and discovered that the system of coordinates and points on the skin of the human body evoked reproducible effects. He proved that everybody could be stimulated to enhance clairvoyance, clairaudience, and precognition and retrocognition, the same way that we learn writing or mathematical calculations. Calligaris discovered points of intersections of cosmic energies which acted as mirrors, collectors and accumulators. He found that these points could be loaded [i.e. a force applied against the point], for instance, by metal cylinders, and stimulated to better reflect the higher intelligence and to produce an echo of the vital vibrations of the universe.’

‘Dr. Calligaris found that a mental image, the thought-form itself, will cause stimulation within the body…Research has shown that thoughts can be regarded as objects with physical existence. Various Calligaris locations are related with certain organs, and these spots respond and correspond to emotions. So, thoughts can cause emotions and touch organs, which in turn relate to the points on the skin. It Is not the acupuncture system of points.’

Fascinating as all that is, I was led to the comments where I landed on a discussion and link to a video about the torus as ‘a fundamental geometry in all of reality, and very inherently connected to the essence of our existence… [that] connects ideas about nature and energy flow with the infinite nature and the source field of all things.’

Turns out the torus is the shape I have been drawing for some time to describe the nature of our being a point of Oneness without being defined by a single, stagnant ‘self’. Here is a doodle from a notebook in July of this year:

My explanation is not quite the same as the fundamental geometry concept. I was talking about being a dynamic collection of points (of awareness) between the concentrated centre and the All That Is. It’s as if we are walking around with the illusion of consistency when in reality there is nothing about us that sticks from one moment to the next (except that we continue to go back to points of awareness familiar to us).

These points of awareness are active all the time and give us our sense of what’s going on. If I am ‘channelling’ a message whether it’s from Christ or the tree I have my hands on or the client sitting in my office, I am doing the same thing – reconfiguring my points of awareness.

When I’m making an assessment of HOW to see the world or which story to cling to as my immediate reality, I am simply reconfiguring my points of awareness. I do this all day for my entire life. In each moment I get to choose where my consciousness is located, which points in the torus it is correlated with, or which points of perspective in the All That Is I am tuned to.

The torus is not outside of me or an awareness I need to access. The torus is awareness. If you are tuned to concrete, singular, consistent aspects of self, then you are doing so as a choice in each moment for the torus is always moving! You cannot get stuck in one spot, it’s impossible.

The Thrive Movement

The link about the torus also took me to a movie – Thrive

More than a film about sacred geometry or politics or spirituality, Thrive is an attempt to give you some background on how the world works, some of the major issues, and a lot of the solutions being proposed. Foster Gamble and is wife Kimberly are the main characters/protagonists/champions of the work. A most eloquent and educated pair driven by compassionate reason and thorough investigation.

‘THRIVE is an unconventional documentary that lifts the veil on what’s REALLY going on in our world by following the money upstream — uncovering the global consolidation of power in nearly every aspect of our lives. Weaving together breakthroughs in science, consciousness and activism, THRIVE offers real solutions, empowering us with unprecedented and bold strategies for reclaiming our lives and our future.’

It’s ambitious. I’m impressed at the scale of the project and admire the administrators ability to collate such a diverse array of information in one easy to access space. I’m also hopeful that such an endeavour is the beginning of the end of the problem-solution paradox.

Most notable, for me, was the snippet with Barbara Marx Hubbard toward the end who said that if everyone knew this as ‘our birth, that everyone is needed and everyone will get what they truly want’ then we could enjoy a magical world… because I have often butted heads with the idea that we need to focus on a ‘re-birth’ on a ‘global evolution’ somewhere in the future that denies us the ability to know our purpose and perfection in this moment. But I love that she says ‘everyone is needed’ because I’m assuming that means the oil company directors, the Rockefeller’s, the bank managers, the miners, the dairy industry advocates, the government henchmen responsible for removing free energy prototypes (and their inventors), and all the other people mentioned in the story about world domination.

I’m assuming that because it means that we are starting to see the self-organising system for what it is.

I love that Foster ends with Aikido and the core ethic of focusing on what’s best for the individual (not the group) and I can see where ‘non-violation’ makes sense to him, to everyone who wants to live in a friendly, fearless world… and yet I can also see the how ‘non-violation’ is yet another principle of control. It’s a way to denote what it means to be ‘good’, to belong, to have worth, to be on purpose, when truly we are too perceptually (and culturally) bias to KNOW what it is to follow principles of goodness and worth and anything else that takes us out of being present and into playing by the rules.

Obviously I’m not suggesting we shut it all down and just let people run riot. Who would let that happen anyway? It’s logistically impossible.

What I’m drawing into the discussion is the point that whatever principle or ethic you come up with for people to adhere to, will be variously defined and almost impossible to serve all people at all times. So what do we do with all of our human systems if creating principles is only going to change the problems shape? How about we get rid of the problem altogether?!

The Problem-Solution Paradox

Okay, so denying there is hunger and corruption isn’t going to get us anywhere. That’s not in dispute.

But what if hunger was not your motivator and yet you acted to do something about it? Don’t you think Spirit, or the Inner Drive, your intuitive guidance has a plan for you to do something about all the ‘suffering’ on the planet? Don’t you think your purpose is directly linked to all the other aspects of All That Is in this reality? Why else do you read about global consciousness and the evolution of planetary co-creation?

If your purpose is connected to some aspect of the picture, and your intuitive guidance is the compass, then you don’t need to focus on the problem to find a solution. Most of our greatest inventions and insights are not created out of the desire to solve a problem, they are ‘accidental’ meanderings in the world of curiosity. When you focus on ‘problems’ you do two things, 1) you limit your discoveries to what the problem allows you to conceive of, and 2) you feed energy into the problem itself.

No matter how you go about it, when you produce a solution to a problem you cannot avoid recreating the problem. It’s one of those philosophical paradoxes we need to comprehend if we really want to start living in fusion with the All That Is. The consciousness that created the problem is invested in seeing it as a problem!

So how do you see it outside the problem-solution paradigm and still ‘get things done’?

Living Fusion

You keep doing what you’re doing with a different story.

Instead of individuals being motivated by greed and violence and superiority, you know that even the Rockefeller’s are motivated by the desire to ‘feel loved’. This is more than suggesting that everyone just wants to be loved, I am talking about ‘feeling loved’ as a function of how each one of us has learnt to belong, find worth (purpose), and be safe. These are complex, dynamic concepts that live with us in each moment. They drive our thoughts and behaviours. They manifest in our lives as rules about what makes the world go around. They are the story that give meaning to your ‘facts’.

Most people will stop doing what they’re doing once they know a different story, especially if the current story is making them blind to their worth, purpose, and safety. As an advocate of peace you will know it from the inside out rather than focusing on creating it from the outside in. Your ‘work’ on the planet will not change, only your motivation and the sense of peace you experience changes because it stops being about what’s ‘happening’ around you.

It stops being about what’s happening around you because you know all things as happening for you. That means you go to Guinea and set up sustainable development with an inner peace that is purely focused on your purpose in this moment. It means you volunteer because your intuition tells you to and all the experiences you have while you’re signing up, on the way to work, as you participate, pondering life on the way home, these are all in the moment as a point of Oneness without any other story about who’s wrong and who’s right or who’s doing what to you versus who’s backing you up… because it’s all life happening for you (and there’s no other story).

I know it sounds crazy, but so does any idea until you have an experience of it.

Being a Living Master is not about being Jesus or Buddha or Muhammad or Adamus or any other figure associated with ‘enlightenment’. Being a Living Master is about being YOU on this planet knowing that you are a gift with an important job, no matter what appears to be going on. It’s about surrendering to this moment as a spiritual being having a human experience knowing that we are all doing the best we can with what we have (including the individuals you have made up stories about as asleep or awake or ignorant or evil). It’s about being present to the All That Is as a point of Oneness.

Contrast

You don’t have to come from a crap situation to appreciate what you’ve got, and you certainly don’t have to keep acquiring the next level of comfort or indulgence to be grateful. When I woke up this morning I thought about Gramercy Mansion. Louise and I went last year to stay with a group of Ancient Philosophers for five days. Each of us had an amazing room within a labyrinth of levels and exotic pieces littered throughout the halls. It was spectacular.

When I wake up in the now, I can still feel the ambience of Gramercy in my life. I don’t need to buy a new bed or rearrange my lounge room. I just need to feel the wave that comes through me and know it lives here, regardless. There is nothing to sustain or bring back into reality, i’m already feeling the magic of that experience. Because it is the experience that I am tuned to, the essence of a place is not the position it is the experience that YOU have.

Although you cannot deny the power of some locations, or the sensory reality of particular entities, the attachment to and reminiscence of a place is largely about YOUR perception. Memory and desire (past and future) are a form of contrast. What you no longer have and what you have yet to experience (again) is felt as yearning or desire and lack. It is also possible in the now as wonder, curiosity, and fondness.

It is not uncommon to recall experiences in the now. It is how you decipher these recollections that tells you whether they are a yearning for something unseen or living this experience with the flavour of bygone joys. Again, contrast is unnecessary.

I know when I read about evolution and the nature of social change being driven by competition and a level of unbearable distress, there is some part of me that says “NO!” We are capable of understanding life in another way. We are not driven by competition but by co-operation. Even the pioneers of biological evolution, like Lemarck, will tell you that life is an interconnected and it’s driving force is an ‘instructive, cooperative interaction among organisms and their environment’ (Lipton 2005). This cooperation enables life to ‘survive and evolve in a dynamic world’ where there is no true other. We are all in this together.

Cells need each other. People need each other. Trees need each other. And all of the relationships each of these systems is connected to is reliant upon every other system on and off the planet. It’s not just about preservation, it’s about evolution. We are in this moment as a team all parts and whole. There is no other, there is no enemy, there is no ultimate goal we are waiting for in order to know ourselves and each other as perfect. This is it!

We are the I Am, perfect and exploring in this moment. Driven and delving in this experience as an expression of All That Is. Evolution is not going somewhere, it is here in the now. It is asking you to be present, to follow your intuition, and to know that you are perfectly designed for your mission.

You don’t have to wake up in the morning thinking about what’s crap in the world to motivate yourself to do your job on the planet. This is contrast. There is no contrast. There is only this moment as a gift with an important job. In this moment, you do what you’re told (follow your intuitive guidance) for its own sake because you’re part of a team – the All That Is!

When you wake up in the morning you can breathe the ambience of any moment and listen for direction, for the loudest aspect of yourself or your experience, and then follow the white rabbit all day long. This is graceful surrender. It doesn’t look graceful, and it doesn’t always make sense to your busy, logical mind obsessed with finding reason and outcomes BUT it certainly keeps you on purpose… which is where you want to be, right?

Pathology and Oneness

Last night I had a dream about poisonous jelly fish, or at least they were meant to be. I didn’t have any ill effects except on my right side around my ovary. The rest of the stings simply washed off. So I search for the significance of the right ovary and find Dr. Northrup mentioned in a blog about ovarian cysts. Reading the article I realise two things.

1) The story that Dr. Northrup and Louise Hay tell about the body as a vehicle of self-awareness feels true. The ovaries are our seat of creative power in the world and our thoughts and feelings are linked to our bodies through our endocrine, nervous and immune systems.

2) There is no need to pathologise this awareness.

We can know this story as true just as easily bypassing the ‘blocked energy’ and ‘unexpressed emotion’ idea (which makes you or somebody else wrong) and going straight to life as an intuitive conversation.

My ovaries are lighting up or getting loud and asking me to pay attention. What am I being asked to pay attention to?

If I was standing in the middle of the tribe being acknowledged for my power, my place, my purpose, what would the message be?

This is your affirmation!

The universe does not want to communicate in pathologies, it wants to highlight experiences that remind you of what matters. Your ovaries are creativity and cycles of emotional expression. Celebrate them! There is nothing ‘wrong’, you are simply being asked to become aware. This awareness does not have to be fixed.

If the current story says you are ‘working too much’ then how can you know this without making yourself wrong, without having to change or heal some part of yourself? When you make yourself wrong, there is no room to nuzzle in and get to know the real, naked you. All of the aspects that emerge to represent you are either shut down or remodelled into something more appropriate. “You” get lost and buried under all that remodelling.

I know it seems counter-intuitive. “How can my aggression be good for me?” you ask. “How can it be appropriate to laze around all weekend eating and ignoring everybody else’s needs?” It’s not that simple. You’re not being asked to keep a tight ship OR run amok. You’re being asked to pay attention in a particular way, in a way that reminds you of your power, your place, and your purpose.

There are a million ways to be aware of what’s happening. How can you be aware of what’s happening for you, rather than to you? This is the difference between pathology and whatever you want to call the things I do. Heart Alchemy, Living Fusion, Oneness, being a Living Master…

It doesn’t matter what label you put on it. What matters is that you see all things as part of the conversation. As part of the conversation you can act from a place that reminds you of your power, your place, and your purpose. From this place you take responsibility for your reaction to the world and know that it is an invitation to be present on purpose. When you are present on purpose you are not making yourself or anybody else wrong and the universe is forever giving you intuitive guidance. When you follow said guidance, you are in the moment. When you are not following said guidance you are making up a story about what’s happening to you. Simple.

The pathology story leads you to better health and a happier life. The Oneness story is here, right now. No future, no past, no outcome, just presence. The intuitive guidance you follow (or not) is in the moment, not connected to a story about you getting what you want or making the world different. Life in this moment is in service to All That Is with full surrender to the fact that you are a gift with an important job. Coming back to this fact allows you to be present without needing any other confirmation, proof, outcome, reassurance, or signal that life is happening for you and the universe is always in perfect balance.

You know we are all doing the best we can with what we have and when you are asked to start a business or talk to the man at the bus stop or be still when your schedule is so tight there’s no room for toilet breaks… then you do what you’re told because you know the only thing that matters is that you are a gift with an important job (and the universe knows what you need to pay attention to).

Get your facts straight…

It’s Thursday morning.

The idea of boxes and labels keeps coming up.

I’m thinking about all the platforms we link our identity to, that we hold onto so tightly there’s no room for play.

It’s fascinating to think that even love and attraction is set up into teams now. We can’t just explore ourselves in this moment, we need to acknowledge and honour our predilections.

I wonder what it would be like for people to simply be present, no matter what?

What it would be like to know desire in this moment rather than as a sexual orientation or a particular fashion style or a musical preference. I’m not saying sexuality is a whim, on the contrary. I’m saying that we could know ourselves deeply, each moment, and it might appear like a sustained identity, but in essence we would have the freedom to rediscover ourselves in each experience, as it unfolds. As it reveals our response and purpose simultaneously.

Perhaps this is too far for some people to travel. Too present, too uncertain, too much movement for a life to be lived on the ground. And yet, this is the way the universe works. We are moved and moving at all times. Things change constantly. There is no such thing as solid ground for even the densest rock is in a state of motion.

What would it mean to be tied to nothing?

It might mean you could stop fighting to hold onto what you think you are in order to rediscover this experience from whomever you might be now. It might mean you can stop building platforms to be recognised on as “I” in order to dance with whatever’s happening now. Hmmm.

I am reminded of something that came to me yesterday about ‘facts’. That the story dictates just what the facts tell us, not the other way around. For example, if the story tells us woman is less than and the facts are that a woman sleeps for eight hours and a man for six, then the need for extra rest to cope with the demands of life is the sign of a feeble mind. Whereas if the facts are that woman sleeps for six hours and the man for eight, then the facts tells us that a person who uses all their faculties requires more rest than one who has less to work with.

So you see, it is not that facts that determine who we are or how the world sees us… it is the story we garner from those facts.

No matter the facts about who you are, what story are you telling? Who are you allowed to be? What makes you valuable? What makes you beautiful? How do you know you are a gift? And where do you go to for confirmation that your life is on purpose?

What Source Is That?

People seem to be obsessed with the source of things, which bemuses me slightly since we are primarily an experiential universe. I wonder about the questions people ask when they’re walking around in the world. I wonder because when I have clients that tell me what’s happening for them, it reveals the very questions they are asking are where their perception and interpretation of the world is focused.

I say ‘wonder’ and not ‘worry’ because I no longer worry what people are doing-feeling any more than I take responsibility for their choices (or for their mission and purpose). I used to think it was up to me ‘help’ them see what was really going on. Then something changed. Something always changes. Change is our only constant.

Throughout my life, I appear to be doing something in a different way and yet I am always doing my job, no matter what. Whether I believe I am ‘helping’ or not. Whether I am ‘trying’ or not. Whatever I am doing, is my job. How that manifests, how I experience it is another matter altogether.

Hmm. “How does that work again,” you ask? More interesting is the question, “how can I feel at home doing my job?”

This is the running theme at the moment. People are caught up in Galactic Portals and Mercury in Retrograde, and life is throwing them cycles of information that feel like inescapable torture; punishment for not seeing what needs to be done to avoid such discomforts (which are just variations on life’s general trajectory). Guess what?

Think entanglement.

I woke up early to read about it again. Something compels me to come back to it – the quantum physics version – every now and then. This morning it was after an unlikely dream. Another one. This one just as cryptic and yet revealing as the last. The last was about ‘blue star’ which reminded me who-what-where I am connected to. The latest one was about fertility, medical intuition, getting your feet wet, and not knowing how to explain something new. Specifically, a pregnancy thanks to a musician I admired (who was already married). A man I did not have sex with and yet could only see his face once I knew I was with child. A wife who I had sensed medical information for – one miscarriage as the other twin survived in her whom. A house barred from the general tribe of admirers but somehow accessible to me. A house that came to be shared with others, rooms popping into existence and made available as those in need of space appeared and requested shelter. A dream about entanglement.

You see, entanglement is the Quantum Map idea I have about the universe that allows everything to be perfect at each moment rather than moving toward something more harmonious or cohesive. Entanglement is the idea that on the larger scale – the All That Is – everything is in a state of zero entropy (disorder); and on the smallest scale, life is in a constant state of change. In each moment new configurations of ‘what is’ come into existence and are entangled with the rest of the system until its unique “pure state” is correlated with the rest of the particles losing their individual autonomy in favour of a collective state.

If you have never read about quantum mechanics this might seem a bit technical, but really it’s not that complicated. Basically, the nature of All That Is (which our reality and our lives are made of) cannot be out of balance. It’s impossible for life to be unfair or corrupted by good or bad, right or wrong, positive or negative. We are the collective state. The collective state is not something we bring about by making everyone think positive thoughts or do positive things. The collective state is already in harmony.

We can choose what to do on the individual level. As particles yet to be entangled, we can surrender to the pure state of uncertainty. Then as entangled particles in a state of equilibrium, we can be present to the collective state. At no point do we really stop changing for the arrow of time continues to bring in new pure states for us to consider. That means life is an improvisation and there are no rules!

We walk into each room a new person, a new set of information, a new connection to the collective state. You are not the person you were 10 minutes ago and you cannot be held to the ideas that made sense then. This is now, and what makes sense in the now is nothing you have ever experienced before. To be truly in the moment, you know there is everything to learn and nothing to judge since experience is king.

In the now, you are present to the questions you are asking as a means of welcoming and sitting in a particular energetic (rather than a way to find answers). There are no answers, there is only the energetic of experience. The meanings you attribute and the stories you tell are another means of welcoming and sitting in an energetic. What meanings are you tuned to? What stories are you telling? What energetic are you inviting in?

These are the nature of your experience and they have nothing to do with knowing the source of your ‘distress’ or ‘enlightenment’ because when you look to the past or the future then you cannot be present. Your story about how the world began is important to you and so is the reason for your emotional state or financial struggle or romantic poverty or whatever else you are desperate to ‘solve’… and yet the search for answers, for certainty, for clarity is keeping you focused on what’s not happening.

What’s happening for you right now? What do you have? Where are you living? Who are you connected to? When do you know courage and calm? These are the questions that keep you present. When you start searching for things that aren’t here, you neglect the things that are here. And if it’s dire straights you’re in, and you can’t focus for all the noise, then perhaps it’s time to leave. Sometimes noise is an invitation to walk into another room, to take a stroll, to close your eyes, to take a nap, to find a tree and sit for no reason except to be with yourself outside the noise. There is no test asking you to endure the noise and push on through the snow and fight the urge to rest.

Stop. Breathe. Know the magic of now. Operate from one point, as a healer or a teacher or a muse… in all situations. As a healer employed as a teacher you are always a healer. When you give yourself permission to come from that place at all times then things make sense. When you know you are a healer employed on the planet as a teacher who tries to separate those things (to be a good teacher rather than a full time healer) then life does not make sense because you are living in two worlds with multiple languages asking how to be a good teacher, a good mother, a good wife, a good passenger, a good friend, a good student, instead of the one question that really brings you back into your power – how can I be me, right now?

What are you being asked to feel, to do, to know, to say, to ask, to see, to share, to ponder, to acknowledge, to make space for? These are the things that will get you through the day. These are the things that allow you to be tuned to your own purpose and know exactly what needs to be done (or not done) in every situation. By tuning to your own presence you are tuned to what everybody needs. In order to stay strong you may need a few tricks to keep you from temptation. You may be tempted to get it right, to appear competent, to say “yes”, to push through, to be something that looks like you but doesn’t feel like you. These temptations are strong. They are part of how you have operated up until now and they have worked to keep your picture of the world intact.

These rules and submissions are not a flaw, they are your commitments. If you would like to know how to have a new relationships with your commitments, you can contact me about the ebook Louise Moriarty and I are working on. I’d love to send you our first chapter. Otherwise, just start with the understanding that whatever you are committed to is serving you. Nothing needs to change. Once you acknowledge that making yourself wrong is not helping, then you can begin to use other methods to understand who you are and how you are using meaning, ideas, rules, assessments, and other guidelines to simplify your life – even when they appear to be causing chaos!
