The following quote was celebrated on Facebook:
“Forgiving people who have hurt you is your gift to them. Forgetting people who have hurt you is your gift to you.”
I'm happy to say that this is inaccurate, in my humble opinion. Forgiving doesn't equal "tolerating" or "letting off the hook". To forgive is to choose love. It's a gift we give to everyone and ourselves. There's relief, freedom and celebration in it. You might ask, "Well, how is that true, Joe?"
The problem is that we don't forget - not even when we have ADHD, Alzheimer's, dementia or something like that; because, the vibration of the experience becomes a part of us and causes dis-ease. Forgiveness transforms the vibration and causes healing. Love heals. Therefore, forgiveness rules! <3Lovingly Namaste

, author, intuitive counselor, healer, actor, film and TV producer and friend asked the following question...
| || |"I believe God gives us energy which is our direct connection to him. Man has power through energy and can achieve anything when he knows how to apply it to his life. So when we pray we ignite that energy and in fact create our own solutions with Gods blessing. Do you agree?" ~ Janice | || |
"The root cause of all of these is the illusion of separation. "We are organically one" is the "The Earth is round" of our time..."
Facebook thread follows:
: The whole world, deep down, realises that nothing is more important than human and social evolution in harmony with our environment. We know that it is crucial that we advance integrated solutions that address the root causes of greed, intolerance, injustice, inequality, distress and conflict, and that we do that through co-operation and co-creation rather than coca-cola! ;-) Tony Praill
: Consider a world inspired to fulfil each person's unique potential to liberate mutual completeness in abundant variety. A world with an effortless, entire awareness that our varied needs to flower co-operate to harvest the fruits of truth, harmony, peace and bounteous, beautiful creativity. Now is the time to consider, intend and co-create this magnificent world....this is why we are here! ((( ♥ )))Joe Simmons
: The root cause of all of these is the illusion of separation. "We are organically one" is the "The Earth is round" of our time.
"Leading-edge information and growing consciousness bring us a step beyond the planting of seeds. They root the plants of freedom, love, abundance, wholeness and empowerment. For example, it took over 200 years to believe the Earth is round, but when we finally believed it, our experience of life changed quickly and dramatically. Up next, we are One, organically. We are exiting the period that will be known as 'The Age of Insanity - the time when we believed the illusion of separation was true'. We will be shocked and brought to our knees from the remorse of what we had done during the profound unconsciousness of that time. We will be moved, relieved and grateful for the abundance, peace and wholeness of remembering that we are One and Love" ~ Joe Simmons
: Idealism is the new reality! ;-) Joe Simmons
: Our being one is as much of an ideal as is the Earth being round. We just can't see it because we believe that the illusion of separation must disappear before we can realize our oneness. We can embrace the illusion of separation the same way we can embrace the illusion that a movie is made from individual still frames playing in sequence, which we cannot detect with our human tools for perception. The Earth is round, and we are One, organically. This is absolute - regardless of our ability to recognize it. ♥ Tony Praill
: True, though as you say, the recognition is the 'warp- speed' for human evolution. :-) John Halderman
: Yes, before any human descriptions and explanations about life, we were One . . . ARE ONE! We allow ourselves to go down the specific rabbit holes loosing sight of our Oneness. :))) Joe Simmons
: Tony, the good news is that our thwarting or resisting the realization of our oneness, for however many years we may do it, does not change that our believing that the illusion of separation is true is what makes all strife possible. Name it... starvation, homelessness, poverty, war, greed, intolerance, inequality, distress and conflict are all symptoms of our believing and operating as if we are separate.
Knowing that we are One, whenever we act inconsistently to that, we are operating insanely. Hence, we have dis-ease. This is true no matter what we think or no matter how we might rationalize our unwillingness (for whatever reasons) to surrender.
Until we do, we will remain in "The Age of Insanity, the time when we, the humans, believe that the illusion of separation is true." The love that comes from realizing our oneness is the cure for all of it. Actually, it's the only cure. Any other study or exploration for answers is futile and foolish, insane.
More good news... As more of us entertain Oneness consciousness we are building momentum, like a snowball, to reach a critical mass of awareness. Eventually, we will get it like a light going on in our heads. We will say, "What the? Of course, we are one! What the hell were we thinking?" ♥ John Halderman
: agree Joe, seeing our Oneness is the way. When we know our Oneness we stop acting in selfish fearful ways seeking to fill the void created by the perceived separation. We then act in unity seeing how what we do benefits the whole. :)

Thanks for reading this blog post. Firstly, I have to acknowledge that the title of the this blog is almost an oxymoron because "human-centrically" is the only way that we can perceive anything.
The image below is a screen shot of a Facebook picture shared by 11:11 Awakening Code
. According to the sharer, the graph represents galactic wave movement. The sharer states, "This is what's in store for the Human Race after October 28th, 2011 and into 2012. It is the end of Wave Movements or the gradual settling of an advanced sustainable 'Garden of Eden'. Thank YOU Mayan Calendar!! It all makes sense Now!"
For the purpose of this blog post, let's give us (the humans) the benefit of the doubt and give ourselves something about which to celebrate. We deserve it. Life is a conversation, anyway. It's all made up.
I've included (right) The God Code by Gregg Braden as recommended reading because it describes the how and ramifications of Heaven that is coming.
"As implied in many traditional religious descriptions of our origins, 'God created the Heaven and Earth' as two distinct, yet related, realms of experience. The texts go on to describe humankind as a bridge between the two realms, a marriage between Heaven (spirit or soul) and Earth. "'He (humankind) unites both heavenly and earthly qualities within himself...I (God) will create man to be the union of the two...' Through our lives, the qualities of the two realms are merging into a single existence. At the end of our lives, the Heaven and Earth that have merged as our bodies return to their respective abodes. Our bodies return to the dust of the earth, while our souls and Heaven are already one. This perspective of life and death offers a tangible sense of why the experience of death does not mean an end to our existence. The hidden number code assures us that it is so." ~The God Code, page 96, Gregg Braden
This galactic observation, below, which appears to be support of a broad spectrum Ascension that is coming, is a wonderful example that critical mass
of awareness is not limited to the conscious awareness of the human-being parts of us who dwell on the spec of us called Earth. In other words, we (the individuated parts of us called humans) are so tiny; therefore, how could we think that a critical mass
of a tiny piece of our infinite existence could be all upon which we have to rely in order reach a critical mass of awareness that would bring Ascension, which (I hope) includes a personal awareness that we are organically One?
I'm remembering that in some respects, ideas and contexts of altruism are abused as a tool to covertly enslave us, the human beings. As we are one, we've elected to enslave ourselves, of course. There are many perspectives - my favorite being Jainism
, "...an Indian religion that prescribes a path of non-violence towards all living beings. Its philosophy and practice emphasize the necessity of self-effort to move the soul towards divine consciousness and liberation...."
When applied deceitfully, altruism exploits our innate drive and inclination to serve each other as we know, spiritually, that we are one.
We know, on important levels, albeit more unconsciously than not at this point in time, that to serve you is to serve myself. Inequality is not required. A desire to love unconditionally and the insight and awareness to realize personal fulfillment in the engagements is required. However, by questionable definition, this is not altruism
, because altruism includes selflessness for the betterment of a third-party group, e.g. governments, a God, etc. at the expense and/or detriment of the servant.
Given that we are one, all acts of love-inspired service and gifting are divinely "selfish" when we realize, feel and embrace that we are fulfilled and made whole (Holy) in the engagements. When I serve you, I serve myself. My/our accountability is to serve from a place of divine inspiration to determine appropriateness.
In the experience of human-being, we entertain and believe that Heaven is a place to go upon an experience that we've labeled "death." We've added that we must be a certain way in "life", in the eyes of a third-party Supreme Being who makes a judgement and determines whether we've earned a spot in a separate place called Heaven after death.
This context is dogmatic because we misunderstand it. Paradise and Heaven on Earth are attainable always by states of mind or consciousness. Heaven is Heaven. We made up that a lot of hard work and an experience called death are required to be judged worthy and enter Heaven on a different plain of existence. Our oneness includes everything that is, including the Supreme Being.
Heaven is a choice that exists everywhere, always, eternally. Realizing the manifestation for ourselves begins with a word and a declaration to have and experience Heaven now - right here on Earth, while still living. There is no place to go. There is only a way to be to enter Heaven today.
Thank you for your attention and for the opportunity to look and remember! ♥

Regarding the Casey Anthony case
... when something doesn't make sense and seems absurd, I ask myself, "What could be true about this, that if understood, this would make sense?" Here's one possibility regarding the condition of a supposed murderer....
This might or might not apply to the case of Casey Anthony. It's just something to look at, in general.
The symptoms presented in personality disorders such as psychopathy
, narcissistic personality disorder
and borderline personality disorder
can be caused by a bio-neurological coping mechanism that protects the person from trauma. The symptoms can be the result of the mind shutting down areas of the brain to cope with devastation - particularly during childhood. Perhaps Casey is a victim of severe abuse, as well. That is not to say that she or anyone is not responsible for her/his actions. The question is, "Is she solely
responsible?" Hurt people, hurt other people.
The problem is that while they are shut-down and dysfunctional, the neural-pathways are still needed for "normal" human interaction. This factor might apply here.
To reduce the potential occurrence of this particular factor, the question I ask myself is, "How well or not am I interacting with my children and all people? Where might I be hurting myself and others? Am I keeping in the love?" ♥
Thank you for the gift of your time and for your attention to join me in the exploration. ♥
Metaphysical Life Coach & Public Speaker
, a Law of Attraction Coach, submitted the following status on Facebook: "Love Yourself!...if you don't, who will?"
This is a great question and a reminder that we all love each other. We simply don't recognize it. We mis-interpret love as being other things. Then, we add meanings and conditions to the mis-interpretations. Then, we react to the mis-understandings as if they are true. The layers of mis-perceptions breed justifications to resist giving and receiving the love that would otherwise pummel us into a giddy oblivion. Thanks for the opportunity to look and remember!

Contrasting features bring each other into existence.
We see the art when we stand back far enough.
submitted, "…here's my question, of course one that does not need an answer... It’s one of those questions that I already know the answer and yet, I feel I want to share with another person in this moment of time, and I am choosing you.....so, my question is: What is it gonna take for everyone to just love one another without any fear or need to shut down!”
Thank you for sharing yourself. It’s a wonderful opportunity that helps us to look and remember a perspective on what we are doing here in the life.
In my opinion, we don't really want complete harmony. If harmony were all we had, it would disappear. You might wonder how we can say this with confidence. The answer is simple. Given that everything is one and all-inclusive, including that we are the creators and created onto thee and ourselves, we intend everything. Therefore, if a thing or experience exists, it's supposed to be there.
You might ask still, "Why or how do we perceive disharmony if we are love and if love is all there is?" The answer is that we know how to create reality
- spaces of experiences that we conjure with an arsenal of tools that we call illusions. Knowing all things, we are beginning to remember that all things are perceivable by virtue of their comparison to something else. It's the only way. Therefore, we conjure the experience/illusion of disharmony so that we can create a reality where we can feel harmony. The experiences of disharmony are provided by illusions, not by truths. Imagine the illusions are real to the extent that we experience them; however, they are not truths.
Being smart, we also know that we can use the experiences/illusions available in the contexts of individuated bodies to intentionally stand distractingly close to the microcosms. The distractions blind us. This is the "how" part. We must stand distractingly close in order to believe there's such a thing as disharmony. Therefore, we conjure the physical domains
to keep us close to the distractions, so that we are less readily able to see the big pictures. We see less than ants see while they hustle in the footprints of elephants. We don't see the footprints and we don't know that there are elephants. That's not an accident or a mistake. We design it that way.
Everything related to the paths, explorations, endeavors, including our sharing now, are what we want from being tiny. Otherwise, we'd be aware and have neither purpose nor either an impetus to engage. We choose life because it's rich and spicy in the engagements. Eventually, we'll remember that life is most rich and most spicy when we are most vulnerable. That time will mark an end of endless endings and a beginning of endless beginnings.
Thank you for the opportunity to look and remember! <3
Metaphysical Life Coach
, performing artist, holistic arts life coach, friend and partner in the endeavors to remember that we are all one and love asked me what I meant by “Namaste”
in closings. Elynn enjoys closing her communications with “time and love”. I share a perspective on that here, as well.
Namaste is loaded because of the connotations that come with it. The backdrop of it is that we are one, organically. So, imagine all the yumminess that comes from there.
To me, "Namaste" means my higher self recognizes and honors your higher self. Remembering that we are one, including all things, by engaging, we remind each other that we are rich and resplendent. We celebrate that in the present moment. Loving is really the only way to be about it because we are the love. Imagine we are one and love - One Love. Albeit redundant, I say "Lovingly Namaste" as a meditation tuning into the love that we are. Just thinking about it right now makes me giggle and cry at the same time.
Namaste represents gratitude, as well, such that I am grateful for the beautiful and magnificent flavors of light that flow through you; and I thank you for sharing them with me. I can only experience them through you, and given that we are one, our sharing fulfills me and makes me whole. Perhaps, that is what Elynn means by "time." The time is the space in which we share the gifts of love that we are. Since all of us are one and love, we can say that "time" is the space of being pummeled by the awesomeness of us.
Eventually, expressions or greetings/salutations like "Namaste" will be embedded in us and be expressed beyond words by our way of being together. We will be so present and connected that we will be reeking, dwelling, reveling and celebrating in it always and all ways.
Thank you for the opportunity to look and remember.
