New Earth

If at first you do not succeed...

...go with the flow of energy and keep focus, for you have already succeeded, but have not completed the journey.

Back in late December, after much contemplation, I realized that the tides of this ocean of adventure was pushing me back home to Southern Oregon. For a number of reasons, namely, I did not officially own my motorcycle yet and had no title, and that I was missing my romantic connection. "You didn't have your motorcycle title??!!" they would say. Well, when you consider yourself a conduit to which the universe looks at itself and that this planet IS my kingdom, you don't feel precautions the same way. I know I have the freedom to move about the planet as I please, but none the less, others fears weighed heavy on my heart and I decided it would be best since it would prove significantly less energy wasted on authorities. So I returned home, had my first time riding in thick snow going over Mt. Shasta, reunited with my lovely partner Shiloh at the Hi-Lo Motel in Weed, CA and was home on Christmas Eve.

Upon my return it was truly phenomenal to be back in the countless comforts and luxuries of home. For the next two months I was back to enjoying yoga and qigong training from home, acrobatic yoga around the valley, fire spinning with friends, hosting themed parties, enjoying some heavy Southern Oregon snow, playing with my mini-sphinx Hobbes, and sharing my bed with my beloved once again (perhaps the most enjoyable of all).

The first time I ever based Shiloh in the "Candlestick" pose.

I was open to the tides pulling me back out again whenever felt the best, which felt more like 'not able to be on the shore anymore', then feeling the flow of a powerful tide coming in - there was more stability in leaving stability than 'playing it safe'. I sold what I could, and decided I would do my best to make it to Costa Rica with just a few hundred dollars. THIS would be the start of conquering a great fear; MONEY. I would have to be both extremely careful and extremely fortunate to pull this off, and I am being put to the test now. The Universe continues to give me plenty of reassurance with copious amounts of synchronicity (for instance, my motorcycle chain broke when I had 111 on the tachometer - days before, during a challenging part of the ride, I had 111 on the tachometer AND 111 miles left to get to my destination). 

The day before I left, I had the fortunate experience of having my first scheduled public interview with Todd Medina Connects, part of the Soulogy Oneness Network (https://www.facebook.com/search/top/?q=soulogyonenessnetwork); it was very enjoyable aand massively self reflective to have a group of people be interested and supportive of my journey - they continue to be a big source of positive energy and encouragement. Here's a link to the interview itself: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Soulogy/permalink/1055490767915084/?pnref=story

I'm going there, you're going there, we're going there. Baby steps over time make leaps and bounds in no time. I don't need your vote or their electoral vote to lead the planet, my kingdom, to balance and prosperity.

After much emotional motion between Shiloh and I, I left on a sunny February 28th, 2017; three years to the day of the beginning of our relationship and nine years to the day I knew that soul mates existed.

With a generous cash donation and a meal in Crescent City, California from my friend Ed Pratt [incredibly grateful], I was off to Sebastapol, California to stay with my second first host, Bob Hirsch; another avid motorcycle rider, cancer survivor (thriver, really) and overall life enthusiast.

Now what you see is what you get, and you ain't seen nothin yet.

After a couple night's stay at Bob's and seeing all that my friend Stephanie had said to check out in the area and more, I headed out on my 500 mile journey south to Los Angeles down Highway 101. It was a SPECTACULAR day; forecasted sunny skies the whole way down.

And it was, sunny and bright, until dusk...

Exit Babylon - Welcome New Lemuria

I’ve found that it’s not the technology, but how you use it. Perception is infinite and I believe with all my heart that it’s time we put our sights on transmuting What Is into What Is Becoming. I hear a fair amount of talk about “Babylon” in relations to the American Capitalist society; and it’s true, we do consume quite a bit. But that is just What Is, What Can Become of This? Firstly, living a life of gratitude for this ridiculous amount of abundance is key; yea capitalism, yea creation and sharing of creation. Secondly, figure out what to do with such abundance? It seems we cannot fulfill the void within ourselves with stuff, at least not for very long. Buying and needing stuff as an addiction is one of the greatest epidemics of our times, but a with little introspection, we see clearly that it is fundamentally our desire for diversity and living “rich”.

On my path, earlier on I believed it was better to invest in an item over an experience, because an item is more permanent and you can keep enjoying it and an experience is fleeting. There’s a part of me that still believes this, but a new part of me that believes differently. I do still invest in stuff, but now, after the amazing experiences I’ve invested in since I studied abroad in China (2007; when my perspective majorly shifted) I primarily invest in the stuff that allows me invest in experiences. And I enjoy a plethora of experiences! Lately I’ve bought a new car, an electric guitar, yoga mats, flow art props, and clothing/costumes. All of these things are not necessary, but my desire to participate in the activities they bring are such a want that they feel necessary to my life’s growth. This isn’t very stereotypical “Buddhist” or “Spiritual” of me, but I still I've in ‘Merica, and I am happy for the ridiculousness that we are.

So I say we roll with that ridiculousness and get REALLY ridiculous. Instead of repeating history and allowing Babylon to fall, perhaps we transmute it; use what we already have and make it WAY better - lets make it a New Lemuria (Utopia)! Can you imagine a reality where man’s epic structures mesh seamlessly side by side with nature’s? If you can see it in your mind, then that is a form of reality, and it exists, but we have to believe in it and begin and keep looking for evidence of its existence. Truly, it’s equally as challenging to look at what is right then it is to look at what is wrong; but the outcomes are significantly different depending on how much we keep our sights on what we want rather than what we do not want. It’s about energizing the solution rather than the problem; the power is in making the choices and taking the steps Now.

I declare that The Academy of the Heart pyramid, one of my primary life projects, will be an investment in a New Lemurian (Utopian; where man's technology and nature seamlessly mesh) style of living. This structure will mesh the super old school with the super new school, and merge generations and nations through shared interests in a mutual (yet epic) space. It represents the entire Universe, as we know/understand it, in one location on Earth. Everything and more will be shared and we will see our age become something truly blessed; a civilization that we can proudly be a part of. I am reaching out; I need your assistance, in every form.
