the ONE THAT I AM and the  galactic alignment

Astral Projection - dancing galaxy
"Encyclopedia Galactica" is a hugely improved hour of television from the series's nadir in the previous few episodes.

It is a nicely-structured episode that plays to its strengths: Carl Sagan directly dismantling the myths about UFOs; a clear, compelling story of humans cracking the hieroglyphic code, providing  a nice metaphor for the larger ideas of the show; stimulating speculation about extant life; and a general sense of an expanded worldview and hope for the future that stays with us for days after a viewing. I thoroughly enjoyed this episode.


pause for a few minutes ...
- experience this sequence of the dancing galaxy
- with the view to cementing an understanding of the process of evolving collective consciousness !

Connecting everything - connessione 

Meaning connection, for Leonardo connessione was ‘recognition of and appreciation for the interconnectedness of all things and phenomena’.

Today we recognise this concept as systems thinking or what some businesses call interdependence

Much of Leonardo’s output is based on his ability to form new patterns through connections and combinations of different elements.




We can never obtain peace in the outer world  until we make peace with ourselves."


“As human beings we all want to be happy and free from misery…

we have learned that the key to happiness is inner peace.

The greatest obstacles to inner peace are disturbing emotions such as anger, attachment, fear and suspicion,

while love and compassion and a sense of universal responsibility

are the sources of peace and happiness.

Dalai Lama


... and that inner peace is finally manifested through the meditation of deep sleep, the contemplation, deliberation & reflection of awakening to the responsibility of ACTION or NON-ACTION -

on a moment by moment basis, as a direct result of the VERY DEEPEST OF COMPASSION for ALL SOULS consequent to
THE ABSOLUTE UNDERSTANDING of emotions such as healthy anger & toxic anger, attachment to selfish sophistication, absence of any fear, the catalysts of suspicion and LOVE as the ultimate tool of communication with the ONE consciousness supreme.


IT IS no secret that women have a critical role to play in shaping the future.

The Dalai Lama's proclamation that "the world will be saved by the Western woman"

only highlighted the reality that women are emerging as the leaders

of the global change movement.


ALL hail to the 14th Dalai Lama and his own absolute commitment to break down the barriers between the religious, scientific and political perspectives of the pre-dominantly patriarchal mind-set of this planet.

THE FIRST 100 drops in the pond of humanity

here on earth within the sea of our universe

& the ocean of our multiverse of parallel universes



Planetary consciousness is knowing as well as feeling the vital interdependence and essential oneness of humankind, and the conscious adoption of the ethic and the ethos that this entails.”

As defined in the Manifesto on Planetary Consciousness that Ervin Laszlo drafted

with the Dalai Lama and other luminaries of the Club of Budapest in 1996.

Re: Leo Buscaglia's statement I am afraid i do not see it that way.
1. To abhor something is, in itself, a waste as are all attachments.
2. Nothing is a waste but many things may be considered a waste!
3. Life is continuous, eternal, but not Earthly life.

What transition is he referring to?

I have noticed that your writing becomes very, very complex, but more than likely meaningful. I'm here on sort of a wing and a prayer.

I have also produced complex material from my own personal algorhythm.

I also wonder just whom it is I reach in these cosmos

anyhow, through lack of a clearer link, decided to shoot you an idea

the children are our future

and we ought fight for their survival

love and peace dear brother

THE CHILDREN are indeed our future but until their parents and grandparents adopt a child-like acceptance of the ABSOLUTE need for the CHILDREN to decide their OWN future and the future of their CHILDREN and their CHILDREN's CHILDREN, the status quo will continue to obtain.

Hi Michael, we have a contradiction here! An absolute need for the children to decide their own future is at variance with the children
deciding the future of their children and their childrens' children.
Surely what applies in one instance applies in the other?

PS. I hope all is well with you and yours!

TWO FUTURES AS ONE” … indeed .. and as Alex Grey would say “Enter into the NON-duality Zone where all judgements dissolve in the Vast Expanse” …but nevertheless,
THE parents and grandparents of today's children STILL NEED to adopt a child-like acceptance of the ABSOLUTE need for the CHILDREN to decide.

Fantastic blog…my old friend.

Beautiful what the Dalai Lama said. A true statement of “balancing”.

Good reminders for we passionate ones of hope….calm calm calm, right Michael?
Amazing what a good nights sleep and a talk with a good friend can do. :)

I must see that film..

And I think we can evolve our own “Tibets” the best we can AND the change the world at the same time. We must, for the planet and children to survive…let alone decide….BUT we must keep breeeathing :)

Love the astral video- the velocity formula (for reference) would not paste here….imagine that…

Love to Linnie :)

The Dalai Lama, speaking to 20,000 Buddhist students in the holy city of Varansi, said people had forgotten how their own fortunes and those of others were connected.

LACK of spirituality and culture IS the main cause behind the rampant
corruption in the world. PEOPLE have become selfish and materialistic.”

” We are now realizing that it is the amazing precision that is embodied in the universe from the very beginning and its incredible underlying order that have enabled its evolutionary processes to unfold.

The universe may not be designed as it now is, but it appears
to have been designed in some sense to become as it now is.”

Viewed from a neighbouring galaxy    I WHO AM NO THING but capacity here at centre, manifest over there as a spiral galaxy - the Milky Way. Spinning majestically like a slow Catherine wheel I am composed of perhaps 100 billion stars and am about 13.6 billion years old, give or take 800 million years! I am a fairly large spiral galaxy some 120,000 light years across and 3000 light years thick in my centre. I live in a cluster of about 30 galaxies known as the Local Group, the other large galaxy in this group, the Andromeda Nebula, being about 2 million light years away (from the Earth). Currently I am colliding with a small neighbouring galaxy, the Sagittarius Dwarf Galaxy, but not for the first time. It will probably pass through me without causing any serious damage. The most distant group of galaxies I've so far discovered is 13.5 billion light years away.


I am one among 100 billion or more galaxies (who knows?)

rushing outwards from some mysterious primal explosion.

An Ongoing Dialogue with Western Science

Along with his vigorous interest in learning about the newest developments in science, His Holiness brings to bear both a voice for the humanistic implications of the findings, and a high degree of intuitive methodological sophistication. As well as engaging personally in dialogue with Western scientists and encouraging scientific research into Buddhist meditative practices, he has led a campaign to introduce basic science education in Tibetan Buddhist monastic colleges and academic centers, and has encouraged Tibetan scholars to engage with science as a way of revitalizing the Tibetan philosophical tradition. His Holiness believes that science and Buddhism share a common objective: to serve humanity and create a better understanding of the world. He feels that science offers powerful tools for understanding the interconnectedness of all life, and that such understanding provides an essential rationale for ethical behavior and the protection of the environment.

His Holiness summarized these ideas in his Nobel prize acceptance speech:

"With the ever growing impact of science on our lives, religion and spirituality have a greater role to play reminding us of our humanity. There is no contradiction between the two. Each gives us valuable insights into the other. Both science and the teachings of the Buddha tell us of the fundamental unity of all things. This understanding is crucial if we are to take positive and decisive action on the pressing global concern with the environment."

A complete biography of His Holiness the Dalai Lama is available on the website of the Tibetan government-in-exile.

NO THING happens in LIVING NATURE that is not in relation to

THE WHOLE as the BALANCED ECO-SYSTEM which Homo Sapiens

must now restore to ensure the survival of LIFE on EARTH.

The MINDFULNESS Mind Map provides a matrix of 49 "tunnels" - designed for and by the masses - allowing access to a place conducive to Coexistence, Cooperation and Collaboration - such that the collective all-inclusive first person singular present tense, third person objective - point of view - will then lead to the establishment of a new model & method of wealth creation, mutually beneficial to ALL.

It was during March 2000 when a week-long discussion took place

between the Dalai Lama and a panel of distinguished scientists

and philosophers about human behaviour. Daniel Goleman’s 

illuminating account of this meeting offers fresh insights into

how we can recognise and change the emotions that pose grave

danger to our individual and collective fate.
