1) SUMMARY

After being offered previously with five gifts — love, compassion, harmony, Light and joy — a sixth sage is stepping forward to also bring forward his invaluable contribution to humanity's global awakening.

Emerging from the infinitely long and patient work in progress of Life's ever rebounding creativity, countless life forms, including yours, have taken shape and offered ever new opportunities to Universal Consciousness to experience, in an infinite myriads of ways, all aspects of existence in physical form. Stemming from this cauldron of multitudinous reflections of the One and Unique Being at the origin of All That is, your labor of Love has given rise to an exquisitely wondrous expression of this universal creativity in the form of a human body and its overlapping invisible bodies of Light that constitute your whole being. Please hold for a moment the notion that you are much more than your mere physical expression and wrap your mind around the fact that what is essential and literally eternal within you is your True Self. Consider also the fact that, by its very nature, this ethereal soul that you are is indissolubly linked with every other expression, in every dimensional realms of existence of the One Being at the Source and at the evolutionary Apex of all existing fragments of Its infinitely expanding Essence.

Consciously reconnecting with and remembering this innate reality about your Self is a vital key to a quantum leap in consciousness as all of humanity gradually ascends the evolutionary ladder of spiritual remembrance, out of the seemingly bottomless pit of illusory separation and isolation from all other facets of Your Self. Beyond mere intellectual consideration of this conceptual reality, allow yourself to vibrate as a resonant, tingling and scintillating emanation of All That Is until all sense of separation is dissolved and a true sense of wonderment of the cosmic beauty of your very existence as the Universal One takes hold of your entire vibrant and most sacred Presence in this space-time continuum.

As you join in synchronous meditation with all other participants, worldwide, simply Be All The Oneness That You Can Be, for the Highest Good of All.

"As events happens ever more faster and as days and months pass at a seemingly ever faster tempo, humanity, along with all that exists, sentient and non-sentient alike, on Terra Gaia is prodded by powerful Light forces emanating from the entire Universe and from within each Spark of consciousness into awakening to ever greater aspects of our common divine nature. Mostly still below the threshold of normal day-to-day awareness, the changes that are precipitated by these catalyzing energies of Light translate into positive behavioral changes and deep feelings of trust and serenity, equanimity and peace of mind, welling up and permeating every single thought, perception, and moment-by-moment sense of being, within each human now alive on Earth. Likewise, the sense of unity with Nature and All That Is is growing by leaps and bounds as more and more people pay attention to what is around themselves and feel a resonant response of recognition, something not yet fully consciously acknowledged nor named or identified as such, leading each individual onto his/her own unique path of personal remembrance of our true Oneness through the binding Force of Light, Life and Love that unites everything.Our conscious participation to this process and willing surrender to its alchemical transformations of our pupating consciousness into a radiant expression of the universal Design of Perfection enshrined in each holographic reflection of All That Is that we each are, is potentially the most potent contribution we can each make towards facilitating this global awakening now gathering an ever stronger momentum, until all is made One anew and felt as such by all in sheer, blissful awareness."

"There is an ever growing movement in the spiritual sphere uniting all human souls towards reintegration and unity as one collective soul, which is just a tiny aspect of God/Creator. Today this process is speeding up thanks to the countless opportunities offered to spiritual seekers to discover their true nature and unite through meditation work and souls-connecting global coalescence as one global body, mind and soul. This process has also been hastened by special global events regularly proposed, now mostly through the Internet, whose aim is to bring together in spiritual service and communion as many people as possible in an effort both to offset the global tendencies towards negatively inclined thoughts and emotions and also to cocreate a massive Light pulse and catalyze a Love response as a solution to regional and world conflicts and as an incremental way to bring ever more Light consciousness on Earth.As a contribution to global awakening and soul activations of pre-birth self-appointed mission and agreed achievement of chosen goals, we are invited to continue with ever more steadfastness and dedication the ongoing global spiritual healing work with the aim of sustaining by our radiant presence a continuous flow of positive vibrations and emotionally balanced emanations of Love, Peace and Harmony to every single being on Earth and beyond."

"Whenever doubts creep in your mind, remember to reconnect with the living Spirit of God within you. Close your eyes if necessary, allow yourself to become in your own self-perception who you really are, and join in thoughts, Love and Lightfull manifestation of your divine magnificence with all the millions and millions of soulmates and protecting angels and guides who, just like you, are contributing to make this world a perfectly healed and peaceful Eden of beauty and thus make manifest the blissful sense of Oneness with All That Is. Maintain a spiritual linkage with your brethren of the One Life, all over the Earth, on all dimensions, in a continuous overlapping Peace vigil, knowing that in every given moment, hundreds of thousands will be linked just like you into the continuum of healing Love radiating from each fragment of our One Soul to make this world anew into what it is meant to be, as we all know in the deepest recess of our heart."

Sparking a Spiritual Revolution on Planet Earth


At this most critical crossroad in this world’s history, humanity is slowly realizing that past centuries of warfare against man and nature can and will come to an end only when we disarm within the very core essence from where our thoughts, decisions and actions stem the primal cause of self-destruction and wanton violence.

All Life forms are united by the very nature of this magical Life Force that runs through each sentient and non-sentient form of Life on this planet and everywhere else in this Universe and beyond.

Realizing, understanding, imbuing ourselves with this incontrovertible and yet unfathomable Reality is the only means through which humanity can come to adjust its everyday thoughts, words and actions to the fact that We Are All One.

One could make the argument that our own genetic code already spells out in minute details how closely related we all are from a biological standpoint. But this is not about mental reasoning or intellectual construct. This is all and only about intuitively sensing what has been there all along and opening ourselves to Our Selves.

There is no way around the fact that in division and duality we all perish, whereas in unification and reintegration into Oneness, we all survive and prosper.

As more and more souls awaken to their innate Oneness with All That Is and actualize this Reality into all they are until the very sense of separation is gone, extinguished, annihilated, it is becoming ever more easier for other awakening souls to likewise tune into this omnifying vibration that resonates like a dynamic magnetic star core in all frequency bands, permeating the very substance of our planetary body and exponentially expanding towards its Fifth Dimensional Accomplishment.

The results from this Miracle in progress are astonishing to behold and the upwardly cascading radiance of Love that stems from the center of every single cell of our human bodies in a symphonic chorus of tingling ecstasy is melting the fast vanishing barriers of deception built by fear, hatred and disharmonic vibrations generated by our lower animal nature as our embodied souls struggled through countless centuries of incremental growth towards this critical threshold of global awakening we have collectively entered, starting in August 17, 1987 and during successive other Moments of Cosmic Choice, up to this critical juncture in our specific time continuum.

The Time is NOW.

Let us all rejoice, celebrate and contemplate in melted awe what is happening to our Selves as we reach up to the last inner key to the final Moment of Choice and Global Awakening.

Pathways to Unity


This document is designed to trigger an inner awareness of our ability to co-manifest in a Spirit of Unity with Life what is being suggested through our inner intuitive connections with this wondrous and benevolent Force. Here are some steps suggested to help in this "unveiling" process...

Releasing our hidden emotions of fear and trusting that we can really do whatever our soul prompts us to do, whenever it is needed to achieve what the guidance is asking from us.

Opening our hearts to the infinite power of the Universe lying within us like a butterfly in its cocoon, ready to take up its flight to the marvelous "skies of accomplishment".

Discovering, if it's not done yet, that there is no separation between us and all the other people and the whole Universe: ALL IS ONE.

Training ourselves to act from this level of awareness, trusting that through us anything can become manifested and that in each one of us, there is a fragment of the whole puzzle of the global Manifestation Plan.

As you will see hereafter, the first thing to do is to let go of the hidden fears preventing us from being fully able to manifest our inner divine wisdom and to consciously attune our mind in total harmony with the forces of Life acting through us and guiding our deeds and words for the perfect manifestation of our "mission" in this present time.

This level of oneness and resonance with the inner guiding wisdom that each of us can embody on this planet is literally the doorway to the brightest future we could imagine. This feeling of being One with all Life and with the very Spirit animating the entire Universe has to pervade our inner awareness to such a level of "saturation" that nothing else, no doubt, no fear can be left over. This doesn't mean that we will lose what makes each of us so unique in the whole Universe and that the "fragrance" of our personality will be lost. It means that we will align ourselves so totally, so willingly and so joyfully with Life that the flower of our beingness, of our inner Light, will blossom and shine like a star amidst other stars, all different but all the same, rejoicing blissfully in the glory of Oneness with All That IS.

So here are now the steps suggested to unveil the "inner instantaneous knowledge" coming through the still small voice within...

Transforming Fear into Trust

As it was already mentioned, we need to release our hidden emotions of fear to be a clear channel and therefore become able to manifest what our inner guidance will prompt us to do for the perfect unfolding of our personal mission in this lifetime.

Fear is one of the most devastating hindrances to the evolution of Humanity. It is fear that prevents us from listening to the direct guidance we continuously receive within ourselves as to what has to be done in every moment of our lives. When we let fear interfere with the normal process of attunement with this inner guiding force that keeps wisely suggesting to us the best path of action or the best attitude in any situation, then we can only be totally confused as to what we should think, say and do.

That is not to say that fear does not have a role to play in our life as a built-in warning system, inherited through millions of years of evolution, and designed to draw our attention to potentially life-threatening situations. However, today it is just not appropriate anymore to let fear overwhelm us, control our behavior and dictate our decisions. It needs to be balanced with the most powerful force of the Universe. And this Force... is Love. For only Love can neutralize fear, open our hearts to the inner guidance and give us the courage to act accordingly. So to overcome fear, we just have to let the Light of Love guide us. Learning to attune to this powerful and beneficial force is as simple as learning to breathe. It comes to us naturally as we begin to open ourselves to the marvelous magic of Life.

The moment we really take the decision, deep within us, to open ourselves to new possibilities and accept as the necessary steps of apprenticeship the experiences appearing on our path of life, then Love can just grow and grow within us until it radiates like a sun through all our being. It is usually a slow process that gradually brings us from the illusion of separation and loneliness, from which fear can but arise, to the awareness of complete and eternal Unity with all that exists.

In this process, all the hidden fears resulting from forgotten childhood experiences gradually disappear and give way to a new sense of confidence and trust in the benevolence of the Universe. All sorts of techniques exist today to bring hidden fears to the surface of our awareness to be consciously re-experienced, assessed, understood and released. If the need arises to use such techniques to uncover and heal old "scars", it is certainly recommended to seek and use the techniques which we feel are right for us. However, for most people, it is usually possible to attain a high level of trust in the inner guidance and find the strength to act upon it. Through all sorts of experiences, Life is constantly bringing us the right amount of "pressure" to change and evolve and the right mixture of "support" and "encouragement" to keep us going towards the best direction for our inner growth. So we feel that one of the best ways to accelerate this process is to learn to let go of our resistance to change by gradually developing our faith in the Force of Life wisely guiding us.

So all we need is to discover this inner guiding wisdom and grow a strong link of trust and confidence in its ability to see from a "higher perspective" which path of action is the best for us. This means opening ourselves to the idea that there is a part of us which is inherently perfect and that we can tap at any time into its wise vision and instantaneous knowledge to solve any problem or bring out the best from any opportunity. Once we have accepted this possibility, we can begin to have more confidence as we gradually experience more of its infinite potential for perfect guidance and appropriate suggestions.

Finally, being involved in any Life-serving activity offers us a wonderful opportunity to learn this. For there is no better way than actually getting involved in some real experience to test our ability to take up new challenges and to grow through the process of implementing an idea into a solidly grounded manifestation. For those interested in pursuing this matter and deepening their understanding and experience of these concepts, there is at the end of this document a description of some exercises that can be helpful in this process.

Opening our Hearts to the Universe

Once we have begun to let go of our fears, we can gradually become aware of the endless and literally infinite possibilities of discovery and learning awaiting in the innermost secret part of us. Through the umbilical cord of our consciousness linking us with the entire universe and its inexhaustible pool of knowledge, we can have direct access to the most precise and expert source of information and guidance available. Of course, we cannot receive an information for which we are not ready nor can we browse aimlessly into this gigantic "memory bank" of the universe. A "key" is needed and a "password" must be presented to the "door keeper".

This key, one will easily guess, is Love. For the heart must be unlocked to allow a free flow of energy from the universal Force of Life into us, which is the only way to raise our vibratory level and thus bring our consciousness in synchronization with the Universal Consciousness. Then, our "password" will be our humble request for a specific clue to a specific question, a request that should include not only our own concerns but also integrate some of the general concerns of Humanity as a whole.

When we have gained access to this universal field of consciousness, we will spontaneously receive a flow of information that is perfectly attuned and adapted to the present need and discover how right our intuition was -- provided we do not let doubt creep back in our mind and prevent us from acting upon the newly received information. There are various types of experiences we can gradually become familiar with once we have started discovering the endless possibilities of our soul connections. Let us describe some of them.

First, there is some highly significant information about ourselves and our role in this lifetime that usually comes at the climax of an intense meditation, when most of our daily preoccupations have fallen far in the background of our attention, thus allowing an almost totally free space of attention within us to explore new frontiers and touch new subjects. On those rare moments, we can experience a fully aware connection with the Universal Consciousness and identify with the deepest reality of our beingness. We can glimpse what is coming next on our path of evolution and have some very powerful visions and communions that will be key catalysts of change and evolution as well as a constant source of inspiration in our everyday life. We might also experience an incredibly fast infusion of new ideas and concepts that are seeded in a flash within our mind and whose complete significance and impact will be only gradually manifested in the following days, months and even years, as we unlock bit by bit the exact and full meaning of the whole vision.

Secondly, we can experience, on a lower level of attunement with the cosmic matrix of information, various insights and inspirations spontaneously coming to our mind in relation to some specific problems we have or some specific situation we face in our life. Those intuitive guidances usually come along with very pleasant bursts of "scintillating" energy along with a feeling of elation in the body which are there to support and confirm the validity and importance of the information given out to our attention. The more the information suggested is important for us on our evolutionary path, the more those accompanying sensations are strong and ecstatic. The more also they are clear and easily understandable whether they are in the form of spoken words in our mind or of vivid, explicit images.

Finally, and most importantly, we can be constantly receiving a flow of information in our day to day and even minute to minute activities and feel through our intuitive sense of rightness or wrongness if what we are thinking, saying or doing is the right thing to think, say or do at this exact moment in time. This is a very precise reference for assessment and self-adjustment that often goes on unnoticed. Being aware of this nearly "instinctive" selection process while we are saying something for instance, can greatly help us to be responsive to all the hidden subliminal information that we continually receive through our five senses as well as through our "sixth" sense, the telepathic, ultra-sensitive one, which can detect the reactions of other people to our words or attitude and immediately adjust for the best the ideas we are trying to communicate.

When someone becomes very sensitive to this inner guiding system and responds quickly to its indications and promptings, it is possible to modify an idea being expressed even while this idea is in the process of being formulated. But of course, this means being totally open to this inner guiding intuition and in total symbiosis with it, and, above all, not being attached to any personal and strongly held idea. If we tend to stick to a specific set of ideas and conceptions, then it will be hard to be flexible enough to allow for the interactive participation of our spiritual connections with the Universe. So there is always a total free will in this process. Everything depends on our willingness to let go of our resistance and open ourselves to the flow of communication with the universal Intelligence of Life at work within and around us.

Once we have become familiar with those various types of experiences that can help us and guide us on our Path towards the Light, we can literally tap at any time the infinite source of universal Knowledge and gradually discover all the powers available to us when we accept to serve the Great Purpose of Life in Its unfolding eternal evolution. We can become channels for the perfect manifestation of this Grand Design which for aeons has guided the countless expressions of the creative potential of Life: billions and billions of Life forms, not only on this tiny planet but, undoubtedly, upon billions and billions of other planets, everywhere in this prodigious Universe.

Barely emerging from the first chapters of evolution on this planet, our collective awareness is now expanding at an unprecedented pace, like a sudden explosion of consciousness, as the scientists unveil the mysteries of the physical world and as the spiritualists push back the limits of our perception of the spiritual worlds. And we are on the verge of an even more rapid and fascinating expansion of awareness as more and more people are opening their hearts to the inner guiding Light of Love and compassion for all that lives, thus discovering their immortal and sacred Link with the whole Universe... and all Life forms.


"We look back through countless millions of years and see the great will to live struggling out of the intertidal slime, struggling from shape to shape and from power to power, crawling and then walking confidently upon the land, struggling generation after generation to master the air, creeping down into the darkness of the deep; we see it turn upon itself in rage and hunger and reshape itself anew, we watch it draw nearer and more akin to us, expanding, elaborating itself, pursuing its relentless inconceivable purpose, until last it reaches us and its being beats through our brain and arteries...

It is possible to believe that all the past is but the beginning of a beginning, and that all that is and has been is but the twilight of the dawn. It is possible to believe that all that the human mind has ever accomplished is but the dream before the awakening...

Out of our... lineage, minds will spring, that will reach back to us in our littleness to know us better than we know ourselves. A day will come, one day in the unending succession of days, when beings, beings who are now latent in our thoughts and hidden in our loins, shall stand upon this Earth as one stands upon a footstool, and shall laugh and reach out their hands amidst the stars."


- H.G. Wells "The Discovery of the Future" (1902)


Dissolving the Illusion of Separation

From the moment of our birth till the last breath of Life pulsating in the body of flesh given to us for this short period of evolution in the realm of matter, we live under the shadow of the Supreme Illusion, the most formidable obstacle to our awakening that has ever existed: the Illusion of Separation. Separation from the maternal womb, separation from other people, separation from the things we see around us. Later during our life, we learn to disconnect ourselves from our emotions, to develop a rational mind, to cast a cold and distant glance at the miseries and sufferings of this world. And we may even finally cut ourselves from the most important part of our being, from our soul, and, often pushed by an hostile environment, create a rigid and dogmatic set of mind perpetually striving to protect the selfish interests of this hard core of pre-set ideas and opinions we call "ego".

Then, most of the rest of our life is a struggle to find again a balance between the inner aspiration to Peace and harmony we continually feel and the endless contradictions of a lifestyle and behavior patterns dictated by the intransigent domination of this self-created ego. This ingrained system of protection of our self-identity in the face of a "hostile" world has all sorts of hidden mechanisms that are triggered by the slightest direct finger-pointing to vigorously assert its domination over the entire conduct of our life. Even thinking about such things as "ego domination" is enough to trigger a strong resistance reaction so as to protect its integrity, which, in a sense, is a normal reaction given the nature of the ego, camouflaged as it is inside the very fabric of our awareness.

This built-in system of self-protection is a common occurrence resulting from the present nature of our entire social paradigm which fosters the individualistic values of personal achievement through diplomas, wealth and fame over the spiritual values of Self-development, sharing and humility. In times past, when the human civilization was less developed and complex, the aboriginal societies, living in close harmony with the land and other life forms were much more connected with the Web of Life and thus less entrapped within the Illusion of Separation as we are today. The following excerpt of a declaration made by the Chief Seattle in 1854 is a good example of this awareness of Unity with all Life shared by the American Indians of this time...

"Every part of this Earth is sacred to my people. Every shining pine needle, every sanding shore, every mist in the dark woods, every clearing and humming insect is holy in the memory and experience of my people. The sap which courses through the trees carries the memories of the red man. We are part of the Earth and it is part of us. The perfumed flowers are our sisters; the deer, the horse, the great eagle, these are our brothers. The rocky crests, the juices in the meadows, the body heat on the pony, and man -- all belong to the same Family. (...) Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know, the Earth, does not belong to man; man belongs to the Earth. This we know. All things are connected like the blood which unites one family. All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. Man did not weave the web of Life: he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself."


As we go on today, collectively devastating the Earth on an unparalleled scale, we are proving by the absurd the validity of this ancient perception of our place and role in the community of Life. We are destroying the fragile balance, established after billions of years of slow progress, between the unrelenting efforts of Life to take hold on this once barren planet and the sheer forces of entropy counteracting permanently to bring things back to their simplest mineral and chemical expressions. We are simply killing ourselves... This is the ultimate result of a civilization dominated by the Illusion of Separation.

Fortunately, in the late sixties we began to see the emergence of a movement calling for a return to simpler values, more in harmony with the natural rhythms and laws of Life, and eventually leading to the ecological movement of the 80's and 90's. Yet, the old dominant paradigm still exerts a considerable influence and threatens, if not quickly changed, to create a traumatic setback to the evolution of Life on planet Earth. And the key of this change... is in each one of us.

Dissolving this Illusion of Separation is our greatest challenge and our best opportunity to shift from a world of violent competition, war, pollution and despair, to a world of gentle cooperation, peace, harmony and hope. And again, Love is the only force that can change the world... and ourselves. Love within us first, for if we cannot feel Love within us, we cannot feel Love for others. Then Love for all the other human beings, no matter how different they are, for what really matters is not the outside but the inside: the same human body, the same feelings, the same desire to love and be loved. And above all, the same Life animating all our cells... and the cells of all the other Life forms on this planet and everywhere in the universe. This sacred bond of Love is what makes the Illusion of Separation just that... an illusion. Nothing is separated from anything. All is ONE!...

Co-creating a New World

Being attuned to the Reality that we are One with the whole Universe, conscious that, through us, the power of Love can change the world, little by little, one by one, we can therefore start acting from this level of awareness and gradually train ourselves to trust what comes to us as a path of action through the connecting medium of our consciousness, our "still small voice within". This progressive self-training is the key to our successful re-alignment with the Life Purpose being manifested through us, now in a conscious manner. Instead of "swimming" against the lifestreams or of simply being bounced from one obstacle to another, we fully and deeply accept to surrender to the gentle push-pull of Life and open our hearts to the magnificent flow of Love, vitality and inspiration guiding us towards Light. We become co-creators of a New World, a world where no child will suffer and die from hunger and lack of Love, a world where we will pay attention to the real issues, living in harmony with Nature, being at Peace within and with the whole Universe, a world where the real meaning of life will be understood and where we will care for Life.

We all want to live in a better world. We all want to care for Life. We all want to let go of our past and forgive ourselves as well as others to become free, unbound, fully attuned with the Will of Life, serving where we are, as best as we can. We are all the children of Life and as such deserve the best: good food, fresh air and clean water equally shared with all the generations to come. It is within the reach of our arms, of our hearts, to materialize this for all, now. We have the power to manifest all the necessary tools and events to achieve this goal, for the entire Universe is behind our action, supporting each one of us, fully and steadfastly... provided we accept to Serve. The moment we surrender, it is done! The moment we let go of our fears, it is done!

The moment we align our will with the Will of Life... It - is - done.

Entering this new level of awareness is like opening all the doors of our mind cells, raising our eyes to the sky and welcoming the warm and gentle rays of the sun. We are the only makers of our destiny. No one else than we can do what we have to do. And at the same time, what the others can do, we cannot. For each of us has a part of the whole Plan to manifest and care for.

Not a single human can achieve alone what 2 human beings can do when attuned to the same vibration. Two candles are brighter than one. Imagine what a thousand candles can do... a million candles... 6 billion candles! We are all the living prophecy, awakening to our Unity, One with Life, One with the Universe.

Let it BE!




The following material is offered as a complement to "Pathways To Unity" above.

Guided Visualization


The following guided visualization is proposed to bring about the discovery of a way, among many others, to feel our intimate union with the natural elements. We can indeed recreate within our mind, through inspiring images, a state of consciousness allowing us to open the doors of a magical world of endless wonders. More than just feeling highly spiritual emotions, the intent is to fan the inner flame of our sense of belonging to this extraordinary Universe which is ours.

By surrendering ourselves to the inspirations and the joyous and enthusiast freedom that such an exercise can generate, we release our potential of Communion with the Force of Life within us and around us. This surrendering is however an essential condition to take full advantage of the visualization technique. We must have the will to "play the game" and to silence a certain analytic mind which has not its place in that kind of experience. We shall therefore be able to reap the fruits of this adventure in the infinite Universe of Beauty and Light awaiting to be explored within us...

To facilitate this inner journey, it is better to lie down comfortably and first of all relax all muscular tensions, clear our mind from any worry, and totally rely on the person guiding us for this experience through reading the proposed text. It is also good to create an appropriate acoustic background by playing soft music at a very low volume, or for instance, a recording of ocean waves.

If you are alone, you may record it on a cassette and play it for you or you can carefully read the following text and then lie down, close your eyes, and slowly recreate within your mind the proposed series of images. But it is not necessary to follow exactly the same pattern. You can just become a spectator of the images, impressions, and intuitions that may spontaneously emerge after the first phase of "starting" the process. This technique, similar to awakened dreaming, but different because you are an awake and alert observer, allow the inner being, your soul, to guide you to the perceptions and experiences that help your spiritual evolution and a better understanding of the present circumstances of your life.

You are lying down on a beach... perfectly relaxed..

You feel the warm and comfortable sand under your body... which slowly espouses the respiration of the Earth...

Force... Serenity... Peace...

Your breath slows down... and becomes imperceptible... your heart beat, impalpable...

A great shudder of Light gently grows within you... A scintillating energy takes possession of your being...

All around you, roots begins to form and spin down in the sand... You are now One with the Earth... You are the body of the Earth...

You are bathed in Light... As if you were a flower, you feel crystalline dewdrops forming upon you...

Freshness... Purity... Innocence...

A gentle breeze comes to caress your face... bringing along the saline fragrance of the sea... You feel regenerate... A new Life flows within you...

Supported by the wind which is rising, your body, filled with Light, breaks off the links keeping it down on the ground... You float higher and higher in a sky open to all horizons...

Freedom... Joy... Celebration...

A landscape of soft hills and lush forests majestically unfolds under you...

Far away, a silent, imposing mountain stands like a huge colossus of rocks and snow... It attracts you as a gigantic magnet... And you glide towards it... faster and faster... higher and higher... always higher...

Drawn up to its summit, you stop there, turn your attention to the horizon, and glance at its curvature... This immense world is the cradle which has seen your birth...

A mad Love, in proportion to this Living Earth, swells your lungs and stirs your heart... She loves you as a child... And you love her as a mother.......

Looking to the sky, the Sun, dazzling in his robe of Light, invites you to ascend, still higher, to gaze at the vault, starred with diamonds, of the Universe...

Lifted up by an invisible Force of infinite Goodness and Compassion, you pass in a few seconds through the atmosphere surrounding the Earth and quickly rise away...

Before continuing your journey toward the stars, for a last time, you glance at this island of Life, this Vessel of Light, your Home...

Harmony... Communion... Unity...

As a celestial music, the stellar Symphony of the Milky Way's billions of suns is there, all around you...

Without going further, for you are now everywhere, you fuse yourself in a flash of Love with the infinite which within you... And your consciousness embraces the whole Universe...

Do you feel this Presence, this Ocean of Life, this Hymn of Love within you?...

AUMMMMMMM...




Experience of Communion


Make yourself comfortable in a quiet place and relax.

Take a few minutes to calm the mental agitation within your mind, progressively pushing into the background any preoccupation or thought linked with what you have just done or what you plan to do, and focus your attention in the Present Moment.

Progressively raise your consciousness at the level of your soul, of this silent Presence observing within you your thoughts and actions. Become identified with, centered on this inner Consciousness.

Constantly bring back your attention to this state of observation, of profound serenity, of eternal Present, until your consciousness has become perfectly stabilized within this state, in balance between your consciousness of being yourself and the non-differentiated, neutral consciousness of your soul.

Let grow within you the Flame of Life, the crystalline scintillation of the Vital Energy...

Become aware that this energy flowing within each of your cells is exactly the same which flows within all other human beings on Earth... You are this Life! There isn't any separation, any difference between you and this Life. It is you and you are It... Let yourself become totally flooded by this state of identification with Life...

Let flow the tears of Joy, the infinite ecstasy, the nameless happiness growing within you...

Realize, visualize, feel that all the bodies of all the living beings are within you... You are One with all the human beings of the world... You are all these beings at the same time... Love them as yourself for you are Life and Life is within everyone...

Ardently repeat many times in your mind: "We are all One... We are all One... We are all One..."

Experience for a few minutes this feeling created within you, staying in a state of total receptivity, open to any impression, image or experience...

To conclude, read the following text in a low voice, then meditate upon the deep meaning of these few thoughts...

Beyond eons and infinite spaces, only ONE BEING is manifested.

All that exists, from the humblest blade of grass to the most majestic star, is united with this same Being.

When a human being attunes his consciousness to this eternal Reality, he merges with the very Essence of All That Is.

He vibrates in unison with Life, this immortal Force which, everywhere in the Universe, manifests Itself though an infinity of living forms.

Through Its evolution within us, Life continues Its eternal Work to express the infinite Beauty, Wisdom, and Love of this Unique Being.

Within us, It vibrates... Within each of our hearts, a spark of infinite is scintillating with an immortal Light...

We are Life Itself, shining everywhere with an inexhaustible brilliance...

We are all ONE with the stars... with the planets... with the oceans...

with the rivers... with the fishes...

We are all ONE with the forests...

with the plants... with the animals....

with the wind... with the birds...

We are all ONE with all human beings...

and with the whole Universe!...

WE ARE ALL ONE

Attuning with the Inner Teacher


Now here is the description of an exercise that can be helpful to foster our inner transformation and open our hearts to the marvelous force of Love...

It is usually good to go in a quiet place where no sound or activity will be a disturbance. With the body seated in a comfortable position, play a soft music, if necessary, to cover other surrounding sounds and enhance the quality of the exercise.

Closing the eyes and breathing in very slowly through the nose, the air is retained inside the lungs for a few seconds and then the exhalation follows very slowly. While doing so, all the attention is focused in the nostrils to feel fresh air coming in and out. Gradually, the breathing slows down and comes to an imperceptible level. During the breathing, all the muscles become totally relaxed and any residual tension in the neck and shoulders is consciously released.

The attention then shifts from the body to the thoughts which are passively observed while they arise and pass through the mind like clouds of all shapes and sizes passing through a vast blue sky. No effort, no struggle is made to stop them from arising and passing but they are accepted as the natural occurrence of an active brain.

Becoming gradually aware of the underlying "web of awareness" onto which these thoughts manifest their existence, the attention is not focused on any specific thing or idea but becomes aware of the attention itself... It's a vast endless canvass onto which all the thoughts and emotions are inscribed. It's neutral, perfect and endlessly shifting to whatever "something" in us chooses to focus on.

This "something" that takes the decision is now the focus of all the attention. There is no judgement, no analysis. It is felt, observed, perceived as it is. Then a total acceptance of whatever comes up allows the spontaneous expression of what has been waiting there for years, even for centuries, to be received, listened to, accepted, and integrated into the underlying web of awareness of the consciousness.

The will of this "something" within us gradually rises to assert its presence and offer any needed guidance at this point in time. Love, Peace, Harmony are the all-pervading thoughts-feelings radiating through the mind, while "crystalline" streams of Light-energy burst through the body. The Connection is made... The Transformation process is accelerating. The star shines and shines, ever more brightly...

The normal process of thought and analysis gradually comes back while the consciousness is suffused with the full meaning and tangible reality of what has just been experienced. The awareness of Unity with All That Is has grown a little more. Open the eyes and be...

"There comes a time in your life when you realize that if you stand still, you will remain at this point forever. You realize that if you fall and stay down, life will pass you by. Life’s circumstances are not always what you might wish them to be (at the moment). Rather than wondering about or questioning the direction your life has taken, accept the fact that there is a path before you now. Walk your path one step at a time. Keep your head up, and cast your dreams to the stars. Keep your belief in yourself and walk into your new journey. You will find it magnificent, spectacular, and beyond your wildest imaginings."

Dancing into Truth


I am spirit on Earth and I dedicate myself to channelling Love and Truth into my life.

I am a source of Light in the living body of creation ever growing in Unity with all as the Universe and I flow harmoniously in change together.

Love is my Nature, Truth is my Will.

The essential masculine and feminine principles as the God and Goddess in all their forms dwell within me.

The ecstasy of their intertwining is the divine spark of Life into my deeper nature.

I am a wild child, a responsible adult and a wise elder. I encompass within myself the wealth of human experience.

I welcome the fullness of life with its joy and sorrow as I work and play.

Calling to memory all suppressed experiences, I accept them with forgiveness and understanding.

I love and I do as I will. The Truth of my experience and purity of my heart enable me to govern myself.

I share a Vision with all people building a world based on freedom and cooperation.

The Universe flows through me and I use this power to create, nurture and heal.

My Love embraces violence and pain and transmute them into Peace and health.

I respect the autonomy of each and will not interfere with pity or harm. I create my own reality as I provide myself with the experiences I need.

My spiritual nature guides my ego and shapes all I think, feel and say.

I lovingly and willingly surrender to the beauty and perfection of all that I am.

I feel my connection with all facets of this Universe -- The Earth, the water, the sky, plants, animals, spirits and other beings.

The divine within me recognizes and appreciates the divine within you. My mind is a messenger bearing inspiration and intuition.

I am sincere, I honor my word, and I fulfill the responsibilities I choose. In perfect Love and perfect trust, I share the Truth within me.

Life's experiences reflect my behavior as the web of cause and effect constantly reminds me of my path; whatever I send out returns magnified.

I use this feedback to stay in tune with my environment. I am healthy, happy and free as Earth's abundance provides for all my needs.

I celebrate the cycles of change and recognize illness, adversity and confusion as opportunities to grow in wisdom and understanding.

Realizing the grace of the divine within I laugh, sing and dance in the everpresent now.

I am birthing a new magical being within myself as part of the planetary transformation of consciousness and evolution of homo sapiens into homo veritas, true human.

Be - become God-dess. I am - we are.
