Now having come to understand that we are all spiritual beings who have chosen to temporarily live a physical existence on this planet, certain musings are inevitable, and shared here.

Barbara With: Imagining Einstein

11:26 a.m. Day 5, Year 0000 NE.
I just have to add a postnote. I had the opportunity at the Quantum Leap to experience Barbara With. She recently published a book entitled Imagining Einstein. She is an amazing singer and she channeled Albert Einstein in Taos. I was in tears. These were tears of joy and hope for humanity. I would strongly recommend that everyone purchase her book. You can do so from her website: [4099]

First Entry in the New Energy

Date: Day 5, year 0000 NE (New Energy) 11:20 a.m. Central Time

I was unable to post after Monday the 17th due to being so caught up in the new energy and a certain sort of exhaustion. I am back in Iowa now and will share a few things. The New Energy really has a very different feeling to it than I have been used to. We are so used to the way energy works as a sort of push and pull. Everything is based on some kind of conflict. We tend to work at doing stuff. We reach for things into our life. We feel the tension of things and we react to it. We are constantly evaluating and judging whether things are good for us or bad for us, whether this person is going to help us or hurt us, whether this potential experience will be satisfying or unsatisfying for us and for others we care about. We do not think much about this as the overlays are so strong we just see this as our reality. How else could one interact with the world?

The new energy enters in a way that literally cannot be described. It simply is. It has no polarity to it. There is no tug or pull. There is no good or bad about it. It is pure potential. So how do I know I am not imagining it? Well I guess I am imagining it. It is about opening up my imagination, expanding my self in all directions, not just in this reality but in all dimensions and in all places throughout the Multiverse.

Trust in self is all important in this new way of being. Accepting all that is without judgment. Allowing in my deep breathe that which I choose to be in my life.

We are all creators. I am God also. You are God also. It is possible to claim my divinity while staying firmly grounded without judgment in my humanity. And I do mean every aspect of this human being that is me. Every single choice I have made. All the pain I have created as well as all the joy I have created. All the times I have done things that I judge to be miserable failures. Accepting those choices with love and without that judgment. It is how I got to this day. This moment is the moment I am in. I can breathe in this moment and bring in whatever potentials I choose to bring in. I can let go of whatever I no longer choose to have in my life. If I am tired of lack, if I am as Bill Cosby said "We weren't poor; we were broke," then I can bring in abundance. I might start with noticing the abundance of air that I have to breathe, the abundance of sunshine or rain. The abundance of people around me who perhaps love me. When a judgment or doubt or obstacle makes an appearance, I can totally embrace that energy for what it is. I do not have to deny it or pretend it isn't there and try to be positive. I can accept it and feel its energy and release it whenever I so choose. Perhaps I want to dwell around in it for awhile so that I can feel its full expression. Perhaps I want to feel depressed and negative for a day or a week or a month. I can experience it fully and accept it fully until I am ready to choose to release it. Whenever I am ready to do so, it will move back into "all that is" and return to the store of potentials.

We have stuff that we have been accumulating all our lives, and I would add, all our many past lives as well. If it takes a few years to choose to release some of it, then so be it. There is no time table. And I am not responsible for releasing anyone else's stuff. I cannot do so even if I wanted to. Perhaps I can be of some assistance for those who are ready, but there is no way I can do this work for any other person on the planet. If I try, then I am allowing them to feed off of my energy and in fact I am feeding off of theirs as well. The feeding creates drama, and the energies get to move around and play and create havoc as they do so. This is all OK as well. I am choosing however to step away from the drama and to allow the new potentials to enter my life. I am beginning to choose for myself, what I want to experience, what I want to surround myself with.

This is actually very simple, so simple it sounds silly to the mind. The mind could argue that what I am saying is nonsense. My mind loves the scientific method and this sort of experience cannot be tested using the scientific method. So it cannot be proven true or false. Perhaps that is a limitation, or perhaps it is possible to discover something that is not subject to the limitations of the scientific method. I have a strong love for my family. This love is not subject to the scientific method, and yet it is a very powerful influence in my life. I know this. I feel this. I cannot prove this. The new energy of which I am speaking is perhaps like that love. But it doesn't have the charge that my love for my family has. It is without charge. It simply is and I suspect it is much more powerful than we can imagine. [4097]

Taos: Last Entry of the Old Energy

9/17/07: 10:48 p.m. Mountain Time

The train has pulled into the Quantum Leap station. Twenty two chimes rang and with each chime, we let go of those issues/aspects that we chose not to carry with us into the New Energy. With each chime, we chose which aspects we will take with us into the New Energy. We are, of course, totally free to choose. Amir and Gerhard played guitar and drums and their music brought in the New Energy. We absorbed it completely into our bodies. We danced. We swayed. We felt it surging into our whole beings. From there it formed an envelope of power, and it erupted into the Universe. The New Energy is emanating from this little town of Taos, this powerfully historical town, right now. It will reach every being on this planet. It will stretch out in every dimension, through all the realms. It creates potentials for every being. These potentials are new; they never existed before anywhere in the Multiverse. The number and quality of those potentials are so great, it is limitless. We are all free to breathe deeply and to embrace any of these new potentials. Life on this planet will change. We will look back and remember that something shifted about this time. We will begin to think things, feel things, do things, experience things, that have never before been thought, felt, done, or experienced. And so it is. Welcome! [4052]

Taos Log: first entry

9/16/07: 8:39 p.m. Mountain Time:

All day journey from western Iowa to Taos New Mexico. Up at 6:00 a.m., breakfast and goodbyes, drive to Omaha Nebraska and do all the stuff one does prior to getting on an airplane. Who says one person can't make a difference? It was that one dude with the explosives in his shoes that created the energy that now means every person getting on a plane in this country gets to take off his or her shoes. I actually bought a $3 Godiva chocolate bar, and it wasn't very big either, but it was very good! Fly to Dallas and then on to Albuquerque. Meet up with friend and then drive to Taos. We took the scenic route and it took us almost four hours to do it. And it was gorgeous! The mountains and the rocks and trees and colors! Lots of interesting conversation. We talked a lot about trees as we have both worked with trees and have some understandings of their energy. A couple of cell phone calls from my partner and my daughter. We arrive and the energy of the guy at the front desk was wonderful. The guests are all friendly as we are all here to celebrate the Quantum Leap. (Link)

9/17/07 12:10 p.m.
We had the morning free. I woke up around 6:30 so it was too late to call my daughter who wanted to talk to me before school, as it is an hour later in Iowa. She left six messages on my cell phone. Now that she has her own cell phone it is easier for her to call. It was drizzling this morning. Since I had a rental car I decided to drive and find a grocery store. There are mountains in the distance and the color is very hard to describe. I guess I would have to say it was a gray-blue, but the thing is, it keeps changing shade subtly as I watch it. There was one moment when I couldn’t hardly tell the boundary between the mountain and the clouds which were almost the same color, perhaps a slight shade lighter. I stopped at Walmart and got a case of water, then to a grocery store for peanut butter, fresh bread, fresh fruit, one of those salads with the little package of salad dressing inside the bag, yogurt, and a couple of Amy’s frozen dinners. Then I stopped at a Dollar Store to buy a fork, spoon and knife. There is a refrigerator and a microwave in my room. I really want to have my own food for lunches rather than spend $12 to $15. The conference is only a hundred yards from my hotel so, after my journey, I went over and registered. I was greeted by one of the organizers with a big hug and welcome. It was so delightful. While at Walmart I did buy a little bottle of finger nail polish (Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Xtreme Wear.) The shade is Hot Magenta. Hardly subtle. I painted my fingernails and toenails as I am wearing sandals. It doesn’t match my outfit but I am a bit new at this. I had some great conversations with several people already and the first gathering is at 1:30. (4039)

9/17/07: 6:41 p.m.
Today we had a channel from Tobias spoken through Geoffrey Hoppe. He spoke of the long journey we have taken together on the “Old Energy Train” and that the train is about to move into the New Energy train station. This journey started when we first decided to come to Earth and we have all had many lifetimes together with many adventures, many joys and many sorrows. He spoke of several major shifts in the past including one during the time of Lemuria and another during the time of Atlanta. Another happened around 63 BC and of course a major one 2000 years ago when Jesua arrived. He mentioned the early 1500’s and then the late 1800’s with the Industrial Revolution. The 60’s and 70’s was a time of expansion of the mind. The last ten years or so have been the hardest in some ways, as we have pushed ourselves to be ready for the next major shift in consciousness, and now we are about to embark on an adventure that has never been done before. He told us we can wait in the train station as long as we want, or we can jump on the next train, except it isn’t going to be a train. It is being invented as we speak by all of us involved in this process. Neither he nor any of the other angelic entities know where we are going or how we are going to get there. He calls it the New Energy but hasn’t defined it simply because we are all creating it together. One cannot easily talk about something that has never before been. He assures us that he and St. Germaine and the other angelic beings who have been working with us will be coming. We will embark together on this journey and we know not where we are going and we know not how we will get there. Sounds a bit crazy, doesn’t it? It is not a journey of the mind or even of the heart. It is a journey of all of who we are, of our whole complete divine and human nature united. Yes, it may be said that I too am crazy, because I actually believe this stuff. I feel it in a very deep part of my self. I am signing up for the journey! (4050)

Gay Marriage in Iowa

Being from Iowa I thought I could throw in some brief comments about this newest development. On Thursday, August 30 Judge Robert Hanson of Polk County struck down as unconstitutional Iowa's law banning gay marriage. The order was stayed the next day, but not until 20 gay couples submitted applications for marriage licenses and one couple succeeded in getting married by a Unitarian minister Rev. Mark Stringer. Hurray for the UU movement!

It seems that the only appropriate response is to smile and to wish Sean Fritz and Tim McQuillan the best. I have been married for 27 years and it is an odd thing to be committed to one person for so long. We each change and we are constantly readjusting our connection, re-learning how to love each other. So much is shifting in the energies all around us. It is such a blessing to have someone there next to me, supporting me and challenging me (even though she often challenges me when I want to be supported and supports me when I want to be challenged). I have taken for granted the special privileges that have been granted us by the state due to our marriage license. We were not married in Iowa but moved here from another state and I never gave it a thought to wonder if Iowa would honor that license.

Sean and Fritz have not had any of those perks to date. Now they are married, but they still have to wait out all kinds of court battles to see if that sticks. And even if it does, what happens if they want to move to another state?

It seems so strange to me that we are still fighting this battle. Why are people so worried? Sean and Fritz want to make a go of it. Can't we all at least have the courtesy to wish them well and to smile with them at this new beginning. If we are walking or driving and come across a wedding, doesn't a smile come to our face and/or a tear to our eye? Don't we who are not so young any more instinctively remember our youth and wish the new couple well? At least in Iowa we do. Let's not worry about the gender of the folks who are willing to make such a wonderful, exciting, difficult, crazy sort of commitment. After all, lots of straight couples are no longer willing or interested in doing so. [3957]
