Futility


9940636.jpgLike so much of the Western United States, Seattle is shrouded in white-gray wildfire smoke. The sunlight penetrates it like splinters.  It does not feel like the same shimmering city by the sea.  I visited one of my favorite restaurants in the world, which happens to be here, called Mai Thaiku.  It is a little Thai restaurant in what feels like a residential neighborhood.  A good friend dragged me there years ago.  He told me that the food there is so good that you actually can’t hold a conversation while eating it.  When I first tasted the food, I could not believe it.

If food is a certain level of excellence, it makes me shed tears. True to form, my eyes started welling up with tears. The flavors are so all consuming and pleasurable that they suck you inside yourself. They paralyze you. You feel the food in all of your senses like you have come alive but at the same time; you cannot interact with the world. It never matters who I take to Mai Thaiku, they always have the same experience. Once the food gets to the table, as if everyone has taken a shamanic medicine instead of eaten food, a silence falls over everyone. As everyone eats, they close their eyes in ecstasy and breathe in as if trying to inhale the food at the same time as taste it.  If I learned that I was only going to live for a month, one of the things I would do is fly to Seattle to eat my two favorite dishes at the restaurant, Authentic Pad Thai and Red Coconut Curry.

37113-City-Sightseeing-Worldwide-01_preview.jpgI took a Hop On Hop Off Bus Tour around the city in order to get an energetic look at the people.  I usually love those kinds of tours because they usually consist of an overload of historical information and city facts that I love.  But the bus tours are no longer like that.  They are literally nothing more than an advertisement opportunity for local companies.  The drivers now shamelessly sell restaurant after restaurant, shop after shop and tourist attraction after tourist attraction as if directly reading a marketing blurb submitted for Television.  As a business owner myself, it makes perfect sense.  A part of me is thinking, “Well that was a genius idea”.  As a customer, part of me is thinking, “Did I just get on a city tour bus or sign up for an infomercial tour?  If you want to spend a day being driven from tourist site to tourist site and getting on and off at will, it is a great idea.  What it did allow me to do is to survey the city both on a physical and non physical level.

Several unusual things were taking place in Seattle this past weekend, including a huge hemp festival and to the opposite side of the social spectrum, a pro gun rally.  I was unfortunate enough to end up being stopped right in the middle of it…  Essentially a furious collection of the kind of ultra right wing Americans who scare the crap out of other Americans.  For someone who tends to swing more towards the left of American society, it was truly a strange feeling.  For a second you are feeling curious about what the buzz is all about and then after the shock of reading two or three posters settles in, you get that sinking feeling that you have just wandered into the wrong side of town.  It is what I would imagine it feels like to be an albino animal that suddenly realized it walked straight out onto the savanna.  I could feel my body freeze, hoping that at that moment (in the middle of an angry mob) I wouldn’t be recognized as someone from the ‘enemy camp’.


protestsign21.jpgThe dominant positive and negative vibrations of a city do not usually change.  They tend to be incredibly fixed patterns inherent in the people and the place itself.  The dominant positive vibration of the Seattle is still the same (discernment).  But the dominant negative vibration of Seattle (annoyed) is being overtaken by another frequency.  And not for the better I fear.  The exasperation and irritation that is so inherent to the collective is sinking into a shade of futility.  If a person is irritated, it means that they have expectations that are not being met.  The irritation is like a last stand for what someone wants to have happen.  But if that irritation leads to nothing more than just revved engines against a brick wall, at a certain point people give up.  But they give up with a real resentment for the way things are.  Since I was here last, it is a real feeling amongst the people of Seattle that what each individual is wanting is just never going to happen.  This feeling is like the first cobblestone on a road towards depression.  I am wondering if this trend is not just isolated specifically to Seattle, but might be an energetic epidemic that is rippling out across the human collective.  There is a real resentment developing for the way things are.

As the frequency of this universe is increasing and consciousness itself is expanding, what is occurring is an energetic cross roads between all opposites.  Darkness and light, conscious and unconscious, love and fear for example.  It is no longer an option at this crossroads to continue on in an un-integrated state.  It is no longer possible to bulldoze our own fear.  It is no longer an option to operate despite our unconsciousness.  This means that the polarization within us will stop us dead in our tracks.  We must face it directly and resolve the ‘split’ within us in order to be able to move forward at all.  For this reason, so many people are feeling more ‘prevented’ and ‘opposed’ than ever.  And because this universe is operated according to the law of mirroring, this internal resistance will reflect in the outside world.  Meaning we will meet with serious opposition outside as well and not be aware that it is a reflection of the internal opposition that exists.  Needless to say, if a person has no awareness of what is happening with this crossroads within the universe, it simply feels like one is stuck and as if forward movement (so as to create what you want) is impossible.  This feels really, really unfair.  It creates a sense of futility and disillusionment with life itself. 


the-sheaf-pleiadian-lightwork-model-teal-eye-print-store.jpgWhen we are trying to get what we want or when we are trying to heal, any force that opposes our healing or opposes us getting what we want is going to cause us incredible amounts of pain.  What we do when we feel this opposition either internally or externally is that we try to push through it.  We ignore it.  We do not deal with the resistance directly.  Because of this, we actually enhance the resistance because we are in fact resisting our resistance.  We are also wasting lots of energy this way and getting nowhere.  Just like a bad game of tug of war or when two people paddle in two different directions, we end up stuck or spinning in circles or having to put forth so much effort to try to get where we want to go or get what we want that we eventually give up.  If I had one message for the people of Seattle and more than that, one message for the human collective at this time it is: The time has come to directly face and resolve resistance; the internal opposition within you.

Do-It-Yourself Meditation Retreat That Awakens Enlightenment


Here is a simple month-long meditation exercise that helps a person awaken their soul and find who they are deep down inside. This meditation exercise is for those who are really interested in pushing through everything that holds them back on their spiritual journey. This personal journey of meditation can be very easy or demanding depending on the person.

This meditation process can be tailored to each individual. Some people will find answers to the first week in 3 days but might find that another week’s meditation process might take 8 or 9 days. So, listen to your heart. But remember it would be best to put in as many hours as possible meditating. For some it might be 2 hours daily, others 4 hours daily, and still others it might be 8 hours daily. It will all depend on the person and how much they really want to break free of what’s holding them back now.

Week One

This first week a person meditates on “How can I live my life in a way in order to be closer to God, Great Spirit, and the Universe”. This takes some real soul searching and asking the still small voice “What could I do differently” and really wanting to make changes. It also involves wanting to make life better not only for yourself but for all of mankind. This will take time and this is not a short quick answer. After meditating for a while, one should write down what comes up and thus you can look at your answer later, to remind yourself what needs to be done.

Week Two

The second week is not easy at all. It’s to meditate on all the pain and suffering we have caused others. We have to be honest and note without exception where we have hurt people and caused suffering. Most people lock all of this away. But in order to become enlightened, we have to look at our shortcomings in order to become something different. Meditate for a while and also journal what comes up.

Week Three

The third week is meditating on what your inner world, your feelings, what would they be like if you were filled with love 24/7. How would your feelings be different? What would your interactions with people be like? What would you feel if you were filled with love? What would the circumstances of your life look like? Would you still have anger? Would you become frustrated? Would you make some big changes?

This takes time to figure out. So meditate and journal what you find during this week of soul-searching.

Week Four

And the last week is to meditate on ways to change your thinking. During the last week, you meditated on how all of this would come together and change your life and thinking in significant ways. Without this last part, none of the first three weeks mean anything. Basically, you will be meditating on how you can bring all of this together in a practical way into your daily life? This is not easy as a person has to let go of preconceived ideas and ways of being in order to see the truth within. Let go of all things that would be impediments to this process and know somehow it would work out. Just write it all down and then meditate some more.

I know for sure this month-long meditation retreat will change your life forever.

Many blessings to everyone!

For many of us, sleep is an emotional and sometimes even contentious subject. Many of us feel like we don’t get enough sleep (whether that’s because of stress, insomnia or simply lack of time). Others find it difficult to drag themselves out of bed at all, living with issues such […]
