One Important Value Of Clarity

We have all noted the heightened state of political tension in our country. I feel it is really important now to be clear about what we want but it is just as important to advocate what we want - yes and in a benevolent way - oh yes - and I feel it is essential to not be focused on who we think is to blame for all our troubles.

This has been a tremendous pitfall in the most advanced cultures in the past. Blaming in general, simply continues to stir up the pot. I'm not saying that we should discard justice - what I am saying is that blaming in general seems to be a root cause of so much history.

We don't think of history that often as something malevolent or discomforting and yet historians will agree, sometimes with chagrin, that history is very often - to quote my old history teacher, "About groups of unhappy people in ceaseless conflict for power."

My feeling is this - it would be very beneficial for those who are campaigning for what they feel would be good - not only to do in their localities but also how they would see our country and our world evolving.

I know that political realities do not always support this but for those of us who are not running for office and are simply considering the political and even the geopolitical situation I feel it is most important to focus on what we want in the most benevolent way and to let go of attacking or otherwise attempting to besmirch the value of others.

In these times I feel it is essential to be clear and therefore I recommend, not a political position but a humanitarian position. If at all possible - vote your heart in the most benevolent way and let go of who did what to whom. History and the wheels of justice will resolve all of that.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Yes - We Will All Get There In Time

Let us consider for a moment self-sustaining culture. How does it come about.

We see it at times in the animal world - such as in ants and other beings. Do we see it in the cultures on Earth.

Sometimes there are vestiges of such cultures. Sometimes the living descendants of such cultures do live on as best they can within their capabilities to sustain themselves. Other times they are examples of a previously well balanced self-sustaining culture that has been disrupted or harmed by others.

I believe that we are moving slowly step by step towards a self-sustaining culture. I have seen the signs and I believe self-sustaining cultures come about primarily because of necessity.

Once one begins that - one discovers that in order to allow the culture to continue to sustain itself it must feed all aspects of peoples needs and the most important aspect is of course - yes food, yes shelter, yes clothing but the most important aspect is how do we treat our young, how do we treat our old, how do we treat those who are infirm in any way and how do we treat each other as well as ourselves.

What are our hearts needs, how can our feelings be nurtured and supported, what is the most balanced and loving culture.

Only time will tell. We cannot say it's going to be this or that philosophy, this or that religion. We can only say that time will tell and when that time arrives I'm sure there will be scholars and others who will look back at our times and perhaps they won't be as critical as we all are of ourselves and our culture.

Perhaps they will look back and say, "Look there - see. Here are the seeds of our beautiful culture. The roots were taking hold even then and now it has bloomed into the beautiful flowers of cities and well being all over the planet in our self-sustaining domes of existence."

I believe that it will happen out of necessity and I believe we will all have heart for each other. I've seen the most unlikely people show heart for each other in unexpected moments of challenge.

I believe that this heart will grow, take root, offer flowers of actions and applications and seed itself over time into self-sustaining beauty. This is what I believe.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Supporting Mother Earth

Living through this earthquake in Hawaii while by no means the first one I've experienced has brought to my attention that it is so very easy, isn't it to take for granted those whom we love.

I can think many times of taking Mother Earth for granted even though I am very fond of her indeed and often love her consciously. I'm sure you feel the same way.

How many other times though have I simply taken her for granted and not considered her and I feel we all do this too.

Considering that Mother Earth has put us on notice that she must do things for herself, as I've said elsewhere, I feel perhaps a Living Prayer and even Benevolent Magic might be called for here.

The first thing that we could say and I'm sure many of you have been saying is simply voicing our support for Mother Earth. For example, "I am asking that Mother Earth experience all the co-operation, love and feeling of being cherished in the most benevolent way from all beings."

And now I feel it would be useful to have a Benevolent Magic for us as well. You might say if you like, "I request that I experience the most benevolent life for me on Mother Earth and as a direct reflection of that - that Mother Earth bask in that benevolence as well and that this all occur in the most benevolent way resulting in the most benevolent outcome."

Now I realize that that is a bit repetitive but the word "benevolent" which is a cornerstone of this site is meant to express a feeling.

That is why for some of you - in some languages other than english may have noticed that that feeling is described by other words in your language. Perhaps your language is more reflective of feelings and the feeling - benevolent - is expressed easily.

On the other hand your language may not be as reflective of feelings and one has to search for just the right words if you can find them. Since you know that my intention with the word benevolent is to express a feeling then that might help you to find that word or those words.

So, just a good thought and feeling for the day eh. Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Feeling Those Who Assist You

There is a reason why I have been training you all to learn how to feel energies and invite them to the point where you can feel them benevolently be they angelic, deity, your guides or whatever purely benevolent and loving energies.

The reasons that a lot of this works - Benevolent Magic, Living Prayer and many more shamanic things that I will share with you on Mystical Man in time is that the energies are involved in the creation and recreation of all that we do here.

So I'm going to give you some homework - it is very simple. The homework is specifically and only this - ask that you have the experience of these benevolent energies.

Just pick a time and a place in such a way that you can feel/experience these energies. Turn the ringer off on the phone. Make sure that you won't be disturbed. Pick a time when it's quiet or use earplugs if you like so that you can create as much quiet as possible.

If you don't know exactly what to say then I recommend you use the format of the Living Prayer. You could say, "I am asking that the most benevolent and loving energies be with me now - that they be of (and you can fill in your deity name here if you wish) and that they be of my Angels and Guides and all loving beings who watch over me from spirit world and beyond."

That's all. You can sit or lie down if you like but when you say the Living Prayer make sure that you have gotten into the comfortable position where you're going to be. Try not to move very much after you've said it, breathing of course is alright, that's very helpful so that the energy can locate you and be with you.

Try this at least 3 or 4 times or until you're able to feel something. It is not a requirement to do the work on Mystical Man. You can still do a great deal of good for yourself and others but it would be very helpful, it will greatly enhance what you do and of course it is a building block to the more that I intend to pass on to you with Mystical Man.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Transitioning - To Trust

Thank you all for your patience. I know I haven't posted here for a while and it might take a little while to get back into the rhythm of things.

I also want to let you know that I'll be easing over - over time now - to posting a little more on Mystical Man and less on this site. I've said a great deal about Benevolent Magic and other things here and I feel that some of the things that I've opened up here - topics that are of special interest and value - can be added to more effectively on Mystical Man.

So I'm not saying goodbye, I'm just going to encourage you to ease over there once I get back on track after the earthquake.

I want to thank you all again for your patience as well as for your prayers and encouragement.

One more thing, there's a time coming now when we will all need to be more co-operative with each other so for those of you who have been missing homework :-) I'm going to give you short homework - not hard but it depends how you look at it eh.

If you want to do something unusual or even a little daring in some cases I'm going to suggest that you pick a neighbor, that you feel safe with and where you feel comfortable, that you don't know and to whom you've never spoken - perhaps there's just been no reason to do so - and see if you can strike up a conversation with them - just one.

I feel it's a time now to make friends in the neighborhood or area where you live even if you don't think you have that much in common - sometimes it might just surprise you how much you do. Give it a try but only if you feel safe alright.

Thanks for reading and I'll be posting again before long. Goodlife.

Earthquake In Hawaii

Greetings. I want to let you know I'm alright and I also want to thank you all for your prayers and your concern.

Please everyone say Living Prayer or your own kind of prayer for everyone here in Hawaii and everyplace else that you feel may need it.

If you don't remember what to say I recommend you say, "I am asking that all those beings who need help receive all the help they need now in the most benevolent way from all those beings who can help them."

Thank you again. Goodlife.

More On Connections

It's all connected you know. We ask for a Living Prayer, we ask for help from spirit or people, we ask for Benevolent Magic - we ask.

Many times what we ask for is answered and there are other times when people ask us for things. Sometimes we don't think about it as being asked.

Maybe we receive a bill - maybe we're a little uncomfortable about paying the bill but then we think back on how relieved we were when we received a letter and thought it was one thing and opened it up and found out it was good news.

Keep in mind that good news, as they say, goes around and comes around. So lets support good news for all. Lets support good news by giving good news to others as we receive it.

Permission To Desire And Acquire

When do we find our way to the place that we are desiring. So many of us have desires that seem to be just out of our reach. They have siren songs - meaning that we get hints, fragrances as it were of their availability but so frequently just out of our reach.

Consider for a moment, "Is this something that would really be good for me. Is this something that is truly desirable. Is it something - yes - that is benevolent for me and how benevolent is it for others."

If you can say that it's benevolent for you and that it is benevolent for others then this is what I recommend. Right now think of how few words you can put it into and say in the form of Benevolent Magic quietly - say, "I request that I now receive - and fill in your request - in the most benevolent way for me and that all that occurs to bring this about will happen in the speediest most benevolent way resulting in the most benevolent outcome."

It is important you see, to give yourself permission to have this thing - whatever it is and it's also important to acknowledge that we live in a community of others and it's important that it be benevolent for them as well.

I know you cannot see all possibilities but if you can ask this in that way I believe it will help and to accentuate it happening in the best way first ask that all the benevolent and loving energies that are available for you be present first and wait for a few moments.

Many of you will feel something good. If you're not yet feeling sensitive to energies then wait about 30 seconds - they'll probably be there. Then say that Benevolent Magic.

Remember now and always - it's important to give yourself permission to have that thing that you want and to have it in a benevolent way and it's also important to take whatever it is outside of the realm of the unattainable.

Give yourself permission to have it yes - but put it into the realm of the possible by turning it into Benevolent Magic.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Observing The Good Things

How many times have you counted your blessings? I know that's an old time saying - or something like it eh.

Here's some interesting homework. Consider counting your blessings and I'll tell you why it's interesting. It's going to require real thought. Sometimes our blessings are vague - meaning that it might just be the friendly person who smiles at the bus stop or maybe someone that holds the door for you when you're struggling out of the supermarket with a shopping bag.

One does not always consider these things blessings and yet the blessings I'd like you to count - just any day - pick a day - are things like that.

Of course you know a lot of your blessings but pick a day and count when people do nice things for you. You don't have to write down all the nice things, you can just put a check mark - see how many you get.

I believe that a spirit of co-operation is coming now and I'd recommend if you haven't noticed it to wait about 3 weeks and then pick a day and see how many people do nice things for you - smile at you, cause you to feel welcome and to that end I'm going to recommend that you say the following Living Prayer.

You might say, "I am asking that a friendly spirit and co-operative attitude prevails amongst all those whom I meet and who are even near me that I could meet and for myself as well in the most benevolent way now."

If enough people say this it might just spread around the world and support and even stimulate such a co-operative spirit. For us all to feel a greater sense of benevolence in this world I believe we need to trigger it and that's why I'm suggesting this simple homework today.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Taking Over For The Spirits In The Stone

Kirsten has asked an interesting question that will help to expand on a recent post here. Here is her question followed by my answer:

Hi, Robert,

Thank you for this interesting post. I remember seeing very clearly the faces of native americans, hundreds of them within the canyon in the rocks of the Dragoon Mt. Range in Arizona. Why do you say, and why is it they are "moving on"?


Kirsten has asked why the spirits are moving on. Here is my answer.

We have been getting trained for a long time to perform the functions of what these spirits who have been watching over us and taking care of us have been doing. These spirits are able to move on now that we have the skills integrated to take over for them.

Much of this work we are integrating and applying in our now sleep state as our dreams are becoming more and more vivid. I'm sure many of you have noticed that.

I grant that sometimes what we remember from our dreams can be a little intense and sometimes even a bit overwhelming. I believe I have referred to this recently as well in my post Training As We Sleep.

Still we are able at the deepest levels of dreams to apply not only to ourselves and to other beings on the Earth but to apply many of the spiritual skills that Mother Earth has ceded to us.

Mother Earth must now look after her own body as there is much for her to repair and she can do this. This does not mean she's going to abandon us but rather that she trusts that we can, like any good children, take over certain things for our parent when our parent needs assistance.

She will repair herself and again be able to take over much of what we are carrying for her now.

So I'm going to suggest that for those of you who feel good about Living Prayer that you say this - I recommend you say, "I am asking that as children of Creator and of Mother Earth that we have the skills and abilities to consciously or at the deep sleep level or more be able to serve, support and nurture Mother Earth and all beings on Earth in the most benevolent way for us and them and that this will result in the most benevolent outcome.

Training As We Sleep

Who are we. Are we only a product of our parents - however loving. Are we only a product of our family extended - past and present. Are we a product of Creator here and beyond. Are we more than that.

We are more than that. We are everything we have ever eaten and everything that has passed through us to go on to become part of something else such as the water we drink which passes through us and is purified through the Earth and goes on to be part of someone or something else.

Every plant we have ever consumed whether we are conscious of it being a plant or not is part of us - its life, its loves, its family, its experience - especially of the sun and of the rain is a portion of us.

It is this diverse world that makes us up that is all around us and inside of us that allows us to not only experience many things that go beyond our own possibility in life experience but also contribute to our capacity to have more life than we live and that more life takes place beyond our conscious mind into the world of dreams.

In dreams we can be anything, be anywhere, go anywhere and often are observing others live their lives.

I have been taught and I believe from my experience that many of us are training to be Guides. We are not just watchers in our dreams - we are training. We are with another who is teaching us how to guide.

From time to time you might catch a little vision of yourself or the being you are identifying with as yourself in the dream and you wake up and you realize that you do not now nor have you ever looked like that.

When that happens and you have the distinct feeling of actually experiencing it as yourself in the dream, that is because that's how Guides are taught.

Guides are taught in such a way as they truly feel what the other person is experiencing so that their guidance does not come from a point of view of teaching someone for whom you have no real idea of what they are experiencing. You must live it with them.

Sometimes that living is challenging but you must live it with them and then whether to depart lovingly or to get away - we wake up.

We sometimes get confused that it is about our lives but almost always with the exception of visions it is teaching that we are experiencing from others and immersion in the life of another somewhere - maybe not even on this planet - that helps us to get more sensitive. That's the bonus you see - we get to be more sensitive to the experience of others on this planet and maybe even in our immediate environment because through that teaching as we learn gradually and slowly how to be a Guide, we experience things that we might not ever be able to experience on this planet.

So the next time you wake up from a dream that seems so real - it is real and dreams are more than the stuff of fantasy.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Passages In Time

Do you see in the sky these days clouds that look like something. Oh not just beautiful clouds or even lenticular clouds which often have a unique beauty of their own but clouds which on one edge or more clearly indicate a picture however fleeting of someone or perhaps some thing.

This is something you will see more and more these days as spirits are presenting themselves before they depart completely from the planet.

Many of these spirits have been watching over different groups of other spirits and occasionally watching over different groups of living beings. Many of them have been family members from the past or on occasion tribal elders in spirit form.

Have you ever noticed in stone - mountains or rocks - a clear, easily discernible face. This is a similar situation where there has been such a desire to protect and oversee, to insulate and support that the face has been imprinted on the stone either through a volcanic expression or more often through the effects of wind and rain and time.

Most of these beings are moving on now and within say - a thousand years will not be visible in the stone anymore but while they are departing they will be visible in the clouds.

If you happen to see a face in the sky and it is pleasing and you have a moment - say up to the sky, "Goodlife." It bids them on their way and acknowledges their love and devotion.

I just thought perhaps you'd be interested and maybe even intrigued by this passage of spirits beyond time.
