I’ll start the ball rolling…. Someone else can add on about the 5th and higher dimensions, as well as alternate or parallel ones, and even vibrations… all very cool stuff, but this is the basics….

What are Dimensions?

Some may get annoyed at my explanation, but I am only being VERY, VERY basic…

First, if you are familiar with physics/mathematics…simple physics, that explain our “physical” world…the world in which “human beings” live, is Three Dimensional… we have width (latitude), Length (longitude) and Height (altitude) …. We live and experience a world of shapes, space, scents, colors, textures, sounds, etc. We relate to things in this way.

The word “Dimension” is a Latin word meaning “measured out”. In other words, “space.” A dimension is a measure of space and the dimension is how it relates
to that space.

Our bodies are 3D, our landscape is 3D, our food is 3D, etc. Everything takes up space and shape. This is living in physicality. We understand and relate to things we can feel, see, smell, hear and taste (utilizing our 5 basic senses). We don’t just see Squares, we also see CUBES, Circles can become Spheres, Triangles, Pyramids, etc. That is living in

So you might say, what is 2D or 1D? We are beyond or above or higher than those dimensions, but basically, consider a “point”, it has no height, no length or width… it is 0D (Zero Dimensions), it doesn’t move, it is it’s totality of existence. Some refer to “God” or “The Source” as the “Zero Point” meaning the point where all Reality Begins or the Source of Everything.

Now consider a “line”. It has length, but that is basically all. That is 1D. It’s interaction with it’s reality is related to the amount of space it takes up.

Now consider a shape like a “square, circle, triangle, etc.” These all have width and length, but no height or depth. If a square or circle was alive and could sense and move it could only perceive you in same way it relates to it’s own reality, as a 2D object. It
could perceive you as having length and width but not as having height/depth… You could stand above the square and it would only relate to the plane of your body, i.e. your foot, as a line blocking it’s path…
the square could go around your foot as though it were an odd shaped 2D object having length and width (longitude & latitude), but it could not move UP (altitude) your body as that would be a NEW dimensional experience for the square. The Square
would need to first realize there WAS an UP dimension before it could learn to relate to it and possibly move UP.

So understanding that we generally relate to our world in 3D we are typically wrapped up in what we perceive from that perspective, and like the “point” who is trapped in the totality of it non dimensional experience or the “square” who limits itself to only
what it thinks it really THERE we often see things as they are presented to us and accept it as “all there is.”

What is 4D? Physicists add “Time” to the 3rd Dimension. So now we have Length, Width, Height (or Depth) and Time. This dimension is also called “Space-Time.”

In general we all do fluctuate in and out of Space-Time, but typically we do not perceive TIME, because time is relative to our physicality. In other words, we perceive time via our 3 dimensional faculties. We see it as linear, or ever moving
forward and with our 3D selves trapped in that movement unable to alter it’s course. We “remember” the past or “contemplate” the future, but we cannot move our 3D selves into the past or the future. We are always in the present no matter what moment of time we think about… we are ALWAYS here, now. The sad thing is, most people don’t truly comprehend that simple fact…. They spend much of their waking life worrying about what MIGHT happen in the future or what horrible things happened in the past, or retreating from things they can’t face by living in their
memories. Our minds ARE capable of perceiving TIME.
Proper control of our thought processes help us to better focus… meditation, relaxation, and understanding all help us to put things in their proper perspectives. The relativity of time is a difficult concept.

Think of this… If you had a twin who was born only seconds after or before you were, you’d generally think of your twin as being the same age (time-wise) as you are, but if you are one side of the Earth and your twin traveled to the other side to live, your twin would then be 1 Day older or younger than you are… Sure you started out as being the same age, but now you are a day different. If your twin travels
back to your side of the planet you are the same age again.

Now imagine if your twin was to travel to the nearest solar system outside of ours; Proxima Centauri, which is about four light-years away. What is a Light-Year? A light-year is a measure of distance. It’s how far light travels in one year. The fastest thing that we know of is light which travels at a speed of 186,000 miles or 300,000 kilometers per second in empty space. To get an idea of how fast this is, light can travel about seven times around Earth in one second!
Astronomers use the speed of light to measure how far away things are in space. They use a unit called the light-year (ly). In one year light travels about 5,880,000,000,000 miles or 9,460,000,000,000 kilometers. That is, about 5.87 trillion miles. Thus, the light from Proxima Centauri is four light-years old when we see it. The light traveling from Proxima Centauri to Earth takes about four light-years to get here. But, at present, we cannot travel as fast as light, so for your twin to travel to the Proxima Centauri (s)he would need to traverse the distance by more conventional means, and the distance plus the speed, plus the length of time it takes is very, very long indeed so you and your twin would be long dead before such a trip could be completed. However, if there was a way to move your twin there without using up time, say, using a transporter which can react in less than a second… then your twin would still now be older than you, because there is still distance between you and your twin and the time it would take to relate to your twin would take, at a minimum, 4 light-years (the time it takes for the light of that start to reach the Earth). Thus you would always have to imagine your Twin being, at the very least 4
light-years older than you, though, (s)he’d really be MUCH, MUCH older, if not already dead, than you are.
That’s way too simplistic, and not even using the proper mathematics… Just understand that as you enter the realm of Time, things work on a different
level of comprehension. You can’t relate to time with your 5 senses or your physicality. For a person in 3D, time just HAPPENS, and happens to them, without any control or resistance on the 3D persons part. A 3D person cannot stop, slow down, speed up or reverse time. However, at times, we can perceive time to have accomplished one of those things. At times it could feel as though it slows down or speeds up or even moves ahead without us realizing it. This is why time is “relative” to the perceiver! It is at moments like this that we actually, unconsciously touch on the 4th Dimension.

So you see, even though we are physically 3D beings, with our mind we do have the capacity to comprehend the 4th Dimension. With that realization, we can then learn how to best relate to it and help it to work for us.

So what is the 5th Dimension? I think I should stop there. I already know some mathematical types will jump all over me for what I’ve said so far… I’m really not trying to teach Physics, only to simplify the concepts in a way that can be comprehensible by even the most unlearned mind.

How many Dimensions are there? Some say 6, some say 11, some say 26 or more.

The basic thing to know is that you should first realize is that you are MORE than your senses, and your capacity to relate to YOUR “Personal Reality.”
First, understand that as a 3D person you live in the NOW… not the Past, and certainly not the Future….
You exist NOW, HERE!

Once you understand THAT you can better control the way you act, rather than “re-act” to your reality. After that you can begin exploring OTHER Dimensions. The explanation of Time was only to help you “Think outside the Box (cube)” as they say… stop being “only 3D” and understand there are OTHER ways to understand reality beyond what we can see, feel, hear, etc. The best way to understand dimensions higher that the 3D is to relate them to “The Spirit” or the Universe.

Add time… step outside of the NOW and see things from a NEW Paradigm and realize that Time is relative. What you see as “happening” doesn’t have to be that way. There are other ways of seeing Time. Don’t be a victim of Time, but rather control time and make it work FOR you. Create your Reality… or Relativity!

Then you can move beyond that to the next Dimension. I’m not that well versed on the higher dimensions, such as those related to the String Theory, etc.

I hope that helps in some concrete way. And remember… We are more than just what is physically perceptible!

EMPHASIS: “We are NOT Human beings on a Spiritual Journey, but RATHER Spiritual beings on a Human Journey”

Reality of Love and Fear

“please use your discrimination and judgment in assessing this material. If something rings true to you, fine. If something does not resonate, please leave it behind, for we would not wish to be a stumbling block for any”.


Our entire universe and everything in it, was created by a God of love to provide us a beautiful planet, created in perfection, for us to experience life in all of its many forms.

But because of manipulation, ignorance, not knowing, we created a world of chaos and fear, and a God of fear. A God who wants vengeance and wrath who will punish us if we do anything wrong and send us to hell to burn for eternity.

That is the illusion, because fear is an illusion. It was created to provide the duality.

Truth: Love is all there is. Love is reality. The saying that love makes the world go round is very true because love permeates everything in our lives, in our world, perhaps without our even realizing it.

Fear is the illusion. Fear is False Evidence Appearing Real. Since fear is an illusion, it can also be removed from our world with a thought, a change in attitude or perception.

Since duality is ending, so is the fear or the need for it.

It’s all in the perception, attitude, learned beliefs that were part of the illusion. We have already shown you in the World of Reality and the World of Illusion that things we were lead to believe are true or lies are not what we thought they were.

Leaving you totally disillusioned was not the goal. Helping you find truth was the real or true goal. One can’t find truth unless the illusion is exposed and removed.

To help people understand, to help us remember, we need real truth now.

Providing truth in this section will help remove more of the illusion. This section will be mainly focused on personal issues in our lives that cause us the most trouble…love and fear are major ones.

Truth: We are all part of the One, part of the Prime Creator who created the many universes, and everything that is in existence everywhere, regardless if it is universes, galaxies, solar systems, stars, planets, rocks, trees, animals, vegetation, and beings of every size, shape, color, description, not just humans, but who are all part of the Prime Source to be Co-Creators.

Prime Creator wanted to experience life, and created everything that is, so He/She would be able to experience it ALL through His/Her creations. We are part of that creation.

We each have a fragment of the Prime Creator that is immortal, that can never die, and that is Who We Really Are. Our external bodies may die, but not Who We Really Are.

The Earth is a showplace, a beautiful planet with a diverse variety of people, cultures, religions, animals, birds, trees, plants, vegetation to add to the experience and diversity of life. The more diverse it is, the greater the opportunity to experience a vast number of very different lives on our path to remember Who We Really Are.

What we have on Earth is unique, unusual. Most planets do not have duality or a place to experience the diversity of life in all of its many forms like we do.

In our world of duality, we had many obstacles put in place. One big one was removing our conscious memory of who we really are so we forgot we were part of the One. We did not lose our subconscious memory. On a subconscious level we remember everything that has ever happened to us, in this life, and every other life, back to the beginning of our creation. The subconscious memory is actually our soul essence that goes with us from life time to life time.

In the near future, we will have the veil totally removed so we will be able to remember it all, clear back to the very beginning of our creation.

After each life, we went to the beyond and unlearned some of these errors, and tried again, but with a new experience, hoping that this next one would give us the answers in which we were seeking…to remember Who We Really Are.

We are also provided guides, Guardian Angels, to protect us and help guide us in the right direction.

While living in the World of Illusion we have been lead to believe a lie…that we are born sinners, not perfect, not Co-creators. That we were created from dirt and will return to dirt once we are dead…then to go to our eternal reward or eternal damnation, but only if we believe the right way. Otherwise, we are condemned to burn in the fires of hell forever.

Think about the inconsistency of that statement above. If we have free will choice, how can we be condemned to hell if we commit a sin? A God of love would not condemn or bring us unspeakable wrath, or send us to kill others of his Creation. The lies are obvious.

No one is any more special to the Creation of the One than any other, so why would the Prime Creator send part of His/Her Creation to kill another? Prime Creator allows, it is mankind who does the killing, the harming, not Prime Creator.

The truth: Prime Creator created our Universe and us in perfection. He gave us free will choice. We have lived hundreds of life times to experience life in all of its many forms so we can grow spiritually since our soul essence goes with us each time.

Earth has a huge diversity of times, countries, cultures, religions, races, beliefs. It could not all be experienced in one life time, or even a dozen life times, so it was necessary for us to have hundreds of life times so we could live a full range of experiences.

We are not here just to learn, but to remember…Who We Really Are: that we are all Co-creators of God, who are eternal immortal beings who can not fail. There is no doubt in any of this. We cannot fail at the Ultimate goal. Yes, it might take us many life times to pull it off, but we cannot fail because it was created or planned for us to not fail…ever.

We can take as long as we want. Screw up as many times as we want. Play the game any way we want. Be anyone we want. Remember: free will choice.

By having our memory erased, we were given a severe handicap. But we were also given an inner knowing of the truth. By going within, we could find the real truth.

But through many years of programming, manipulation, learned beliefs, people stopped going within and instead listened to others who tried to tell them something different.

This increased our handicap of trying to remember Who We Really Are.

But think of it in another way, because we had so many handicaps put in our path to prevent us from succeeding, it has made the victory much sweeter, more glorious and triumphant because we won against such incredible odds and handicaps.

Had the road or path to remember been made much easier, the End Game would have been far less victorious.

Nothing worthwhile is ever easy.

Since duality is ending, we have lived this wide range of experiences. We can choose to continue in the illusion or go on to the next level of evolution, to a higher dimension and new and different experiences from what we have been doing for many centuries.

We are now in the time of sorting. Each person was given the choice of what they want to do next, remain in the illusion or ascend.

Since you are reading this, you are probably one of the ones who chose to ascend.

It’s time for Earth to Ascend, for Her to be healed, for all of the Creations on Earth to be healed with Love, not fear. It’s time for us to remember Who We Really Are and see that all of this has been an illusion for us to grow, to experience life in all of its many forms so we could be greater than we were before we began.

It’s also time for us to remember that we create our world with the power of thought, words and deeds. There are no victims or villains. We have been both, the victim and the villain. The Light and the Dark. Rich and poor, prince and pauper. We have done it all, so it is time to move on to greater things.

In order to learn how to be a Co-Creator with Prime Creator, we first had to learn not to be. There in begins the paradox…the Duality, the Yin and Yang. To remember love, we had to experience hate or fear. To remember honor…experience dishonor. To remember success, experience failure. To remember happiness, we experienced unhappiness. To remember joy…experience sorrow. To remember compassion, experience suffering. To remember being a hero or heroine, we experienced being the villain or villainess. To remember abundance and prosperity, we experienced lack and poverty. To remember a world of peace, we had to experience a world at war with itself.

We have done all that, it’s time to end the illusion, end the duality and remember Who We Really Are…Co-Creators with Prime Creator. Remember we are all part of the One.

Is it not said that experience is life’s greatest teacher?

Earth is a free will zone. What that means is anything is allowed…anything.

Unfortunately that allowed some outside forces to come in here and take advantages of that fact. Prime Creator allowed it because it was a free will zone.

Manipulation was done to our DNA, so our connection to Prime Creator was severed. We still had a connection through our spirit or soul, but through this manipulation, we were programmed or conditioned to look to others for answers. These answers were not truth.

Prime Creator sent messengers to us to help us remember: like Esu Immanuel “Jesus” and Buddha, Confucious, Krishna, Mohammed and others.

Prime Creator has again sent us help in the form of the Ascended Masters, those very same messengers are back to correct the manipulations of how their message got twisted and distorted from the message of love and peace that they originally gave.

The Galactic Federation is here to dispel the lies about the UFOs and the cover-up. And to keep us from blowing ourselves up, which we would have done, had they not been up there.

People from the Inner Earth will be returning to the surface to reveal the truth of our past.

You have been shown in other parts of this website how these messages were distorted. Love and peace was the message they all gave…all of them.

You were shown how we were lied to about our ancient history. Our ancestors, who were probably us, knew the connection to Prime Creator. But it later got severed by those who lived in fear who felt a lack, a need for power in their lives and felt they had to conquer, to control, to manipulate. They did this out of fear.

While they were creating fear for others, they were themselves living in fear. Fear that we would wake up, fear that we would remember of our true connection to a God of love, instead of the God of fear and wrath and vengeance they told us we had.

Even though the messages got distorted we still saw through the distortions and lies.

But even the ones who controlled us finally came back to love in our recent history and are helping us remember Who We Really Are. It was a journey for them to remember they are Part of the One of All That Is.

But by allowing this outside force to manipulate us, making it harder for us to remember Who We Really Are, it again made the victory of Light over Dark so much greater.

As Mike mentioned in the Introduction, we create our world, our reality, every minute of every day, whether we do it consciously or unconsciously.

Many people don’t even think about life, they just let life happen to them without being consciously aware that they are creating every part of it on some level.

We are basically made of three parts: depending on your point of reference. Id, Ego, Super-ego; or mind, body, spirit; or conscious, unconscious, super conscious. Father, son, holy spirit.

For the sake of clarity we will take the easiest definitions: mind, body, spirit (soul).

Thoughts are things that create. Words add power to that creation. Deeds add even more.

We experience two basic emotions, love and fear or varying degrees of both. When we focus on love, great things come into our world, into our creation. When we focus on fear, that too comes into our reality.

Since we are actually in 4th dimension now, our creations are happening much quicker now. It’s essential that we let go of fear and negative emotion because fear will not be allowed in the higher dimensions because fear causes chaos.

Our own past is proof of that.

When we think about bills, we get more bills to think about paying.

The Law of Attraction is working overtime now because we are in the higher frequencies now. Like Mike said, the Universe is neutral. It will give you whatever you want or focus on, be it good, bad or indifferent. If all you focus on or think about is negative things, then your whole world will be bombarded with negative things.

By changing your thinking or focus, you can change your world just by choosing love over fear. Remember…every thing negative in your life is based on fear of some type.

Since the frequency and vibrations of the Earth are increasing dramatically, everything that is not based on love is crumbling, falling apart, because fear is the illusion and it can not exist in the higher frequencies.

People in fear see utter chaos in our world today.

People who understand that the world is based on love, not fear, see the world in its true reality…a world that is changing, a world that is ascending to a higher dimension and frequency so that everything that is not vibrating at the love frequencies are crumbing right before our eyes. People who understand this are not fearful for we know this had to happen, that the old had to fall away to allow the new to be created.

What we are seeing crumble are things, businesses, institutions, governments that were not vibrating on the love frequency because they were all based on corruption, greed, and fraud which are all forms of fear…the fear of lack, of not having enough, so they have to take from others. Fear of not being in control, loss of security, fear of exposure.

Only love will remain, and that includes people who have been caught up in the illusion. It‘s time to come back to love, come out of fear for the world of fear is crumbling and will soon no longer exist, not even as an illusion.

Most of our world is and has been controlled by fear, rather than by love, for centuries. Clearing away this fear is part of the cleansing, the healing of the world that we need.

Even love was often used to control others and was rarely unconditional love.

Most people experience the first love in their lives from their parents, provided the parent or parents felt good about themselves and could pass the love on to their offspring.

If the parent or parents were emotionally and or physically abusive, not even then.

For many centuries it was considered a man’s right to abuse his wife and children and it was not anyone else’s business or right to interfere. That is now changing.

This learned belief got passed down from one generation to another, so it was accepted as just the way things are…men are abusers and women are victims of this abuse. It was just their lot in life so they suffered in silence, assuming it couldn’t be changed.

This too was something that everyone experienced, both being the abuser and the abused, until some inner knowing made future generations understand it was detrimental to both the abuser and the abused, and laws were put in place to prevent it, to stop it.

Some of it still goes on, but not as much as it did in centuries past.

More people have equal rights today than we had 100 years ago.

In years past, many families had a lot of children as unpaid hired help. It was not uncommon for women to have a dozen children. I know, I am one of 11, my father is one of 12, my mother is one of 13.

Most people have children today because they want them. Most of them are also not abused or forced to work in factories at a very young age, like they did a century ago.

Yes, some are still abused but not like they were in the past.

Children are still getting mixed messages from parents. How many times in a child’s life do they hear the words, “no”, “stop” “you can’t.” “I forbid”. In most cases those words are done out of love as a way to protect the child from hurting him or herself or others.

I was forbidden to do things as a child and teenager. I rebelled because I was not told why I was being restricted. It was done to protect me. I did not realize it at the time.

It’s the nature of most teenagers to rebel. It’s rare if they don’t rebel on some level.

They are lead to believe they must obey their parents every wish or be punished. Perhaps even disowned if the offense is something the parent can’t overlook or forgive like getting involved in drugs and or alcohol; commit a crime; marrying someone the parent disapproves of; or a girl getting pregnant without her being married. Or even believe a different way than the parent does.

The child does not have free will choice to do anything they want without their parents punishing them in some capacity or even disowning them. To not be forgiven.

This experience reinforces the belief of not being loveable if a person’s own parents put some type of condition to their love and punishes them if they do not obey them.

Romantic love. This one also usually carries conditions. A person has to do or be what ever the other person expects of them…or the love will be withdrawn. Again, free will choice is not allowed in this relationship either, to be able to do anything a person wants and not be punished for it, or have the relationship be destroyed because of it.

People fall in love all the time, or think they do. Most of the time they fall into lust. The love is as fleeting as the wind. The love is not real and can easily be shattered if the image of that love does something different or unacceptable.

Women are often considered the romantics, but traditionally men fall in love faster and harder than women do. Men are more inclined to love unconditionally than women.

When the love dies, or is lost, men are more often totally shattered by the loss.

Many men who have received Dear John letters during a time of war, have been so totally distraught that it caused them to allow themselves to be killed in battle because the pain was simply too deep to bear.

Many poems and songs are written about a lost love.

The movie of “Love Story” was one that affected many people, but it was based on a lost love. Not from dying, but leaving. In the book and story, Eric Segal had the character Jenny die of leukemia, but it was symbolic, of a women who left him…who was dead to him so he killed her off symbolically in the movie.

The Taj Mahal, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World, was built by one of our Ascended Masters in one of his early life times to a lost love.

Here is another. No greater love can anyone show than to give up their life for another.

Romeo and Juliet, a forbidden love. The movie of “Sayonara“…another forbidden love. In both cases the couple committed suicide rather than live without each other.

The movie of “Titanic” is another story of tragic or lost love.

“Camille” is another one. “A Tale of Two Cities”. “Dr. Zhivago.” “Cleopatra.”

“Helen of Troy” A love that caused a 10 year war.

“Wuthering Heights” “A Farewell To Arms.” “Out of Africa.” “Ghost” all tragic love.

The love of a pet. Pets often show unconditional love more than people do. People don’t call dogs man’s best friend for nothing.

Most of the love stories in history or literature were based on tragic love stories. What real message does that send to people…that even deep special love doesn’t last.

In true unconditional love there are no conditions. It doesn’t matter what the person does, the love remains constant, unchangeable, it can‘t be destroyed.

Some parents have this type of love for a child, that it doesn’t matter what the child does, the love remains constant. But the child does not always know or feel it’s unconditional.

Love of friends. This is also conditional if the person does anything they want. These are often referred to as fair weathered friends. They are friends only if nothing special is asked of them or the friend does not think or behave outside the box

Love of self…primary. Too many people don’t love themselves enough and it shows in how they treat themselves, how they allow others to treat them. Or they treat others.

In order to be able to receive or show love, one must first be able to love themselves first. It’s an age old problem that if a person finds it difficult to love others or feel loved, it is because they don’t love themselves or they feel they are not worthy of being loved.

Goes back to the belief of being a born sinner, of not being loved by parents, or family. Not being able to find love after many failed relationships. Lack of love of self is very often the real cause.

Is it any wonder that people can’t comprehend a Creator who gives us free will choice to do anything we want and not be punished for it when we have been lead to believe by our own experiences with parents, friends, lovers, self, ministers, preachers, priest, rabbis, even the Bible that we are not worthy of being loved?

So even the concept of love carries a degree of fear…fear of losing that love unless we perform or behave according to someone else’s wishes, rules or commands.

That is not free will or unconditional love.

The belief of a vengeful, wrathful God, who punishes us if we disobey, is much more believable because it matches how we interact with the people in our lives from our earliest memories.

If our own parents, love interest, friends, even self, can’t love us unconditionally, how can our Creator grant us free will choice, and unconditional love if no one else can?

Can you see how truly liberating the truth actually is, that our Prime Creator has given us something that no one else in our world has given us…free will choice, to be allowed to do absolutely anything we want, create the most horrible crimes, and not lose that love, because we were created in perfection and this is all an illusion. It’s not real.

We came here to experience life in it’s many forms so Prime Creator will not punish us for doing what we were sent here to do, to experience life to its many forms, even if that life is being someone truly and completely horrible.

There is no sin, there is no judgment.

We can let go of the fear, because we are immortal beings who are loved for Who We Are, and that love will never die, never leave us, no matter what we do.

Everything horrible that has ever happened in our lives, or any life, we did it to someone else in another life time. It’s the duality, so we could learn both sides of it.

Remember…no victims, no villains.

We were all allowed to do these truly horrible things so we could learn, so we could choose to not do them. Not because we were forced to obey, but because we chose to do so. That is what the Prime Creator wants for us, for us to chose to do the right thing, not be forced to comply, which only causes rebellion and resentment.

We knew this when we entered the illusion, that it didn’t matter what we did, we knew we would not lose the unconditional love of our Creator.

That is why we agreed to enter into the illusion because we had that guarantee.

We chose to come here. We knew what the rules would be and have come back time and time again, because we knew we had free will choice and unconditional love. Who in their right mind would keep doing this over and over again if they knew they were going to be punished with hell fire and damnation if they screwed up, especially since half the lives we experienced were on the dark side of life?

The Creator couldn’t get anyone willing to risk the consequences if punishment in the form of hell fire and damnation were assured if the person lived one of the Dark lives.

You can’t have free will choice and punishment too. It doesn’t work or compute.

It’s not a matter of learning the desired behaviors, it’s a matter of remembering them and then choosing to be or do the desired behavior. Nothing is forced…even that is a choice. We all know what these things are. It’s not a matter of learning them. We were created knowing them as truth, yet in order to experience duality, we had to experience both sides of the coin, the good and the bad. Being the prince and the pauper. Hero and villain. Male and female. We came here to experience it all which took many life times.

We could hardly fully experience all these many different lives if we did not have free will choice to experience them fully, and suffer the consequences of man’s laws, not God’s unconditional love. Also the consequences of Universal Laws of cause and affect.

The Universal Law of Attraction…of attracting to you what you think about.

Many are now shouting for world peace. They are sick of war. That is a sign that we are learning to put war behind us. A way to help create peace is given below. I sent this to others and have included it here as well.

Our World At Peace

Dan (twoguns) sent me a special gift: a book, “Conversations With God.” It put a new perspective on many of the things we have been doing that is interfering in bringing home NESARA, First Contact, Second Coming, Golden Age of Prosperity and World Peace that are all right on the edge of manifestation. I want to share it with you and perhaps if we all do this collectively, it will bring them all the rest of the way home.

We are co-creators with God. We create our world. If we want peace, or NESARA, or money, or success, or love, or whatever in our world, then it is up to us to create that into our reality instead of waiting for someone else to do it for us. We don’t do it by begging, pleading or using supplication, but by creating it…first with a thought, then words, then deeds or actions.

Everything in our world is first created with a thought, a dream, a vision. Once that thought, dream or vision comes to mind, then send it out to the universe to create it.

Nothing travels faster than the speed of thought.

Then add power to that thought by the spoken word. Words of faith, belief, gratitude that your vision, thought or dream is a fact and is being created as the words are then spoken …making them a reality.

Deeds. Sharing this vision, thought, dream with others. Two or more in my name gives the thought, vision or dream more power than a single individual alone can create.

Whatever we really and truly want to create can’t be expressed as a want or a need or it will forever more remain a want or a need and not be realized because the Universe will give us what we say we want. If we say we want World Peace or NESARA, First Contact, Second Coming, Golden Age of Prosperity, any or all of them will remain a want. But to say we have any or all of them would be a lie, and both your soul and the universe know it’s a lie.

What to do?

It’s all in the wording. Gratitude is important. Thankfulness and total belief that World Peace, NESARA, First Contact, Second Coming, Golden Age of Prosperity are in fact a reality.

Try this instead. “Thank you, God, for bringing world peace into our lives to stay,” then know, believe, have full faith that World Peace is being brought into our world, instead of it remaining a want or need, and is never fulfilled.

Or expecting someone else to do it for us.

Add in what Sananda suggested. “We suggest taking this idea to the highest level of creative imagination possible. Add color and depth, touch and taste, smell and sound. Make this virtual reality a common one and watch your world change for the better. You all have a part to play and there is no longer any time for procrastination. Time and again we have emphasized the importance of using these tools to create change, we cannot overestimate the importance of it all. Pass these visions along through art and song, dance and love, the highest forms of expression.”

Then try this for another way of looking at NESARA, First Contact, Second Coming, Golden Age of Prosperity.

Thank you, God, for bringing NESARA, First Contact, Second Coming, Golden Age of Prosperity in our lives to stay.

Thank you, God, for bringing us love, harmony, peace, perfect health, joy, compassion, abundance, prosperity, forgiveness into our daily lives to stay.

Since we are Co-creators with God we are thanking ourselves and God while we create it.

Today, being Valentines Day, it seemed appropriate to be writing about love, and one of the messages that came through again from Diane of the Galactic Federation gives us a clearer picture of what our world is becoming through our own creation.


Diane 14-Feb-06

Each day brings forth a new set of possibilities, and the mass consciousness is continually changing. People have a tendency to react to what goes on around them, in a way that goes back eons of time when your strongest instinct was for your survival. With the threats that are now made against various countries that are pictured as a danger to you, it is easy to create an atmosphere of fear and distrust. The peace that you seek sometimes seems elusive and so far away.

There is however a great movement into the Light and it is destined to fulfill your dreams in the very near future. It quietly creates the conditions and opportunity to bring the changes that are necessary so that you can further proceed. As ever, your part is to keep your focus on the outcome and live that vision now. We tell you this often so that you are not distracted by the saber rattling of your leaders. The dark is making its last stand, but it is ultimately doomed to fail.

Have you considered how you will accept the far reaching changes that are due to happen upon Earth? The old is going to be replaced by the new, and already the new energies are bringing the first changes that are needed. In the gradual lifting up the old cannot exist in the higher vibrations and you will become aware of subtle changes that are occurring. On a grand scale you must first realize that the Earth must cleanse itself, and this will become more noticeable as Mother Earth carries it out. The Human Race is also greatly affected, as the time of choice has long arrived and two distinct paths are being carved out.

To those of the Light it is perhaps easy to choose the higher path, as you have been preparing for it for eons of time. However, there are others who are still held down by the attractions of the lower vibrations and they lack the preparation to carry them forward. One major problem for many is that you cannot take your possessions with through to Ascension, anymore than you could at any other time of transition. Ascension takes it a stage further, as some of those souls who are part of your family and friends, have made a decision to stay in the 3D and have no desire to move on as you do.

Ascension means a letting go of all that is of the earthly vibration, as it cannot exist in the higher vibration. It is a simple Universal Law that allows only that which is of the same vibration to be drawn together. Having regard to the rewarding changes that accompany Ascension, there is really no necessity to feel sadness or regret over that which you leave behind. You will have everything you could possibly need to maintain a wonderful quality of life, and want for absolutely nothing. In the higher vibration your needs will in any event change quite considerably to what they were. You will be a free soul able to create for yourself whatever you desire.

On Earth you have been used to acquiring wealth to pay your way through life. That will no longer be necessary as there will be no necessity for payment when all you need is freely available. Health is no longer a problem, as you will be in a body that has been perfected through the affect of the higher vibrations. It will no longer be heavy physical as you experience now, but light and not subject to any adverse affect from outside influences. All around you will be uplifting energies that will interplay with your own, and the most noticeable change will be in the feeling of well being, peace and harmony with all else.

It is as well that you begin to accept that all changes are for good, and trust in the higher forces that have your best interests at heart. Know that God’s plan is perfect, and that it desires for you all that is a reflection of the highest manifestation of God’s Love. Those of the Light have found a way to make the best out of their time on Earth. It has not come without sacrifice, but in their understanding of the higher truths they are able to put it aside.

Dear Ones, there is only one thing that you take with you when you leave the old Earth behind, and that is experience. Love has always been with you, but at times you have allowed it to sink in the morass of the dark energies. Personal love has grown into Unconditional Love, and this is a growth that takes place as you rise higher in the vibrations. Take the time to meditate on these matters and you will find yourself at one with such ideas. They should come naturally to you, as you are returning to the higher state that you left eons of time ago to enter duality.

This cycle is now drawing to a close and everyone has a designated level to go to, and none are left without direction and opportunity to continue their upward journey. Freewill is a marvellous gift that has allowed you to create exactly what you have wished. However this has applied to both the dark and the Light who have fought each other for supremacy. The Light has not always been used in its pure form, and sometimes has been passed off as such simply to ensnare people in the lower vibrations. You have been tried and tested in the fires of conflict and the power battles of Man. Now it is time for all of that to cease, and Heaven has decreed that the end of this cycle now takes place.

I am Diane of The Galactic Federation and like all of my fellow travelers I come to Earth to lift your spirits. I also desire that you see us as your Brothers and Sisters because you are us, and we are you. Our God is Universal and One of Everlasting Love, and our God is your God. We are not strangers, but from one big family that seeks to bring the Light to all forms of life wherever they are. Let us share our love together, and the joy and happiness it brings.

Thank you Diane.

Mike Quinsey.





“…How did this happen? Who’s to blame? Well certainly there are those who are more responsible than others and they will be held accountable but again, truth be told, if you’re looking for the guilty you need only look into a mirror.

I know why you did it. I know you were afraid. Who wouldn’t be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you…” – V FOR VENDETTA

Buta itu Cinta

Good bad it is all in perspective, therefore relativity it is. Is it a blessing when one can see but cannot himself/herself appreciate the beauty of seeing? Is it really a suffering when the blind does not needing to concern himself/herself with the duality of good and bad in sight?Those living in a space where the bad and good of the world of sight does not exist in the mind, only peace and tranquilty.

Those who are taking things for granted are missing much pieces of a blessing


Buta itu Cinta


By: Mang Ucup

“Terima kasih Tuhan!” itulah ucapan pertama saya tiap pagi, setelah saya bangun tidur. Karena begitu saya membuka mata saya tiap hari, saya bisa melihat betapa indahnya ciptaan Tuhan itu, taman yang hijau, bunga yang warna-warni, langit yang biru.

Ini bagi saya merupakan berkat yang sangat indah, karena kita bisa menikmati karunia melihat ini semuanya, apakah Anda bisa membayangkan bagaimana kalau kita dilahirkan dalam keadaan buta? Hidup kita dalam kegelapan terus-menerus? Jangankan gelap terus menerus, lampu mati satu jam saja kita sudah bingung!

Ada seorang mahasiswa yang ingin mencoba bagaimana rasanya menjadi orang buta? Kesulitan apa saja yang harus dihadapi oleh mereka yang tidak bisa melihat? Untuk itu ia mencoba melakukan experiment, dimana ia menutup matanya selama tiga bulan. Hal pertama yang ia rasakan ialah kehilangan kemandiriannya, jangankan untuk jalan keluar untuk mengambil pakaian saja tidak bisa, disitulah ia baru bisa merasakan betapa menderitanya seseorang yang tidak bisa melihat. Pada saat akhir experiment, setelah ia bisa membuka mata dan melihatnya kembali, ucapan pertama yang ia ucapkan
ialah: “Terima kasih Tuhan, bahwa Tuhan telah memberikan kepada saya kesempatan
untuk bisa melihat semua ciptaan Tuhan!”

Disisi lain ia telah bisa mendapatkan hikmah untuk bisa menilai sesuatu bukan hanya dari kulit luarnya saja, bukan dari bungkus atau mereknya saja. Apakah penting merk pakaian seperti Aigner, Boss, Christian Dior? Apakah penting mobil bergengsi seperti BMW, Mercedes? Apakah penting gereja yang indah? Apakah penting kosmetik pemoles wajah? Apakah penting untuk menilai seseorang dari warna kulit? Apakah penting menilai seseorang hanya dari wajah apakah ia bermata sipit, atau bermata biru ataukah ia botak?
Apakah penting penampilan wajah maupun paras cantik? Apakah penting rumah
dan kebun yang indah? Apakah penting untuk tinggal di daerah permukiman elit?

Untuk orang tunanetra semua ini sudah tidak mempunyai daya tarik lagi, ia tidak membutuhkan semuanya ini! Ia tidak akan tergoda lagi oleh segala macam merek dan segala macam barang yang indah-indah, sebab semuanya itu tidaklah penting bagi dia! Ia tidak lagi tertarik dari segi dekorasi atau bentuknya makanan, melainkan rasanya itu jauh lebih penting daripada dekorasinya. Ia tidak tertarik dan tidak membutuhkan penampilan luar! Maka dari itu saya yakin hidup kita akan jauh jauh lebih murah kalau mulai besok kita belanja atau membeli sesuatu tidak berdasarkan bungkus, maupun penampilan luarnya!
Dan sayapun yakin kita akan mendapatkan lebih banyak kawan, kalau kita tidak menilai seseorang hanya dari segi bungkus dan penampilannya saja!

Ketika si Pulan dilahirkan ia masih bisa melihat s/d usia 8 tahun, tetapi karena kena penyakit akhirnya ia menjadi buta total dan tidak bisa melihat lagi. Tentu Anda bisa membayangkan bagaimana perasaannya si Pulan kalau dengan seketika dunianya menjadi gelap gulita, seakan-akan layar tabir kehidupannya ditutup, sehingga ia tidak bisa melihat dan menikmati lagi keindahan alam ini. Ia menjalani sisa kehidupannya sebagai seorang tuna netra.

Walaupun demikian ia merasa beruntung, karena telah bisa mendapatkan pasangan hidup, seorang wanita yang tidak buta tetapi bersedia untuk dijadikan istrinya. Kenapa wanita ini memilih seorang tuna netra sebagai calon suami? Karena wajah wanita itu sendiri telah rusak kebakar, sehingga ia tidak bisa mendapatkan seorang suami, jangankan untuk mendapatkan jodoh, pergi keluar rumahpun ia sering sekali menjadi bahan ejekan dan tertawaan orang, bahkan anak kakaknya sendiri yang masih kecil merasa takut melihat wajahnya. Oleh sebab itulah ia mencari seorang suami yang tidak
menilai dia dari segi wajahnya, ia mencari suami yang bisa mengasihi dia bukan berdasarkan dari segi penampilan luarnya.

Mereka berdua bisa hidup bahagia dengan penuh keharmonisan dan kasih sayang bahkan mereka telah dikaruniakan dua orang anak sehat. Pada suatu hari si Pulan pulang dengan perasaan riang gembira: “Mam, aku punya satu surprise yang sangat menyenangkan?”kata si Pulan, “Aku akan bisa melihat lagi, masa gelap hidup saya akan berakhir!”ucap si Pulan kembali. Bagi si Pulan ini merupakan hadiah yang terindah dan terbesar yang Tuhan akan berikan selama hidupnya.

Maklumlah karena hal inilah yang ia impi-impikan dan yang ia dambakan di dalam kehidupannya. Tiap hari si Pulan berdoa berkali-kali kepada Tuhan, dan memohon agar sekali saja di dalam hidupnya, walaupun hanya untuk beberapa detik sekalipun juga untuk bisa melihat wajah istri dan anak-anaknya yang tercinta. Rupanya Tuhan telah mengabulkan doanya dimana dalam waktu yang dekat ini ia akan bisa melihat lagi seperti sediakala. Seorang Dr. ahli mata dari Jerman, telah menyatakan kesediaannya untuk mengoperasi si Pulan, sehingga akhirnya ia bisa melihat lagi. Berdasarkan hasil
pemeriksaannya ia menyatakan bahwa ia yakin bisa menolong si Pulan sehingga ia bisa
melihat lagi. Dan minggu yang akan datang ia sudah bisa di operasi.

Apakah Anda bisa membayangkan, bagaimana perasaan si Pulan setelah 22 tahun buta, akhirnya ia akan bisa melihat lagi? Ia akan bisa melihat kembali, semua keindahan alam yang pernah ia lihat sebelumnya selama delapan tahun, bagaimana hijaunya rumput itu, bagaimana birunya langit. Ia akan bisa melihat dan menikmati lagi isi dunia ini dengan segala macam warna yang indah-indah, tetapi yang lebih penting dari segala2nya ialah ia akan bisa melihat wajah istri dan anak-anaknya yang terkasih, yang belum pernah ia
lihat selama hidupnya.

Apakah surprise ini menyenangkan istrinya? Disatu pihak ia merasa senang kalau suaminya bisa melihat kembali, tetapi dilain pihak ia merasa sangat takut sekali. Ia merasa takut, apakah kehidupan kekeluargaan mereka akan bisa tetap berjalan seperti sediakala dengan penuh kasih dan keharmonisan?
Ia takut perkawinannya akan menjadi kandas, ia takut rumah tangganya akan menjadi hancur. Ia merasa takut, bagaimana kalau suaminya nanti melihat wajahnya yang buruk dan sudah rusak ini. Ia merasa takut suaminya tidak akan bisa dan mau mengasihinya lagi, bahkan ia takut di tinggal oleh suaminya, karena penampilan luarnya yang buruk dan rusak terbakar. Bahkan ia berdoa kepada Tuhan memohon pengampunan dosa, karena ia merasa bersalah, sebab ia tidak mampu berbagi rasa dan bisa turut merasakan perasaan gembira bersama suaminya. Ia merasa perasaan egoisnya terlalu besar, karena ia
terlalu mengasihi suaminya.

Perasaan gembira bahwa suaminya akan bisa melihat kembali, telah ditutup oleh rasa takut tak terhingga. Apakah salah kalau ia sangat mengasihi suaminya? Apakah salah kalau ia merasa takut ditinggal oleh suaminya? Walaupun demikian ia tidak mau mengungkapkan perasaan ini kepada suaminya, ia tetap pendam di dalam hatinya.

Semakin mendekati hari H, dimana ia akan bisa melihat kembali, semakin senang perasaan si Pulan, bahkan kawan-kawan maupun tetangganya sekampung sudah mengetahui berita bahagia ini dan semuanya turut mengucapkan selamat dan turut menyatakan kebahagiaan mereka, hanya istrinya seorang semakin mendekati hari H, semakin cemas ia rasakan dan rasa takutnyapun semakin besar. Istrinya tetap tidak mau mengungkapkan perasaannya, karena ia tidak mau merusak kebahagiaan maupun harapan dari suaminya. Walaupun ia tidak mengucapkannya, tetapi hal ini terasakan sekali oleh suaminya, karena istrinya yang tadinya periang seolah-olah berubah menjadi semakin pendiam dan sering melamun.

Hari H pun tiba, sejak jam empat pagi si Pulan sekeluarga telah bangun, karena bagi si Pulan hari ini adalah hari yang terindah di dalam kehidupannya. Dan juga seperti persyaratan dari Dr. sejak kemarin ia sudah puasa tidak makan maupun minum lagi. Tepat jam 8.00 pagi bel bunyi rumah bunyi, rupanya supir taxi yang akan menjemput si Pulan telah tiba, si Pulan berjalan keluar untuk membukakan pintu, tetapi istrinya pergi ke kamar tidur untuk berdoa sambil menangis. Ia tidak mau dan tidak bisa pamit lagi dari suaminya, karena perasan takutnya sudah tidak tertahankan lagi.

Pada saat ia berlutut dan berdoa, sambil berlinang air matanya keluar, tiba-tiba ia merasakan belaian tangan yang membelai kepalanya dari belakang dengan penuh kasih sayang. Ternyata itu adalah tangan suaminya, ia berkata:
“Mah, saya tidak jadi pergi, saya telah membatalkan jadwal operasinya, karena saya tidak jadi dan tidak akan mau di operasi lagi. Bagi saya kasih sayangmu ada jauh lebih indah dan lebih berharga daripada bisa melihat. Buat apa saya bisa melihat, kalau setelah itu hubungan dan keharmonisan hidup kita berdua menjadi rusak. Kasih sayangmu ada jauh lebih berharga dan lebih indah, daripada mata yang bisa melihat lagi. Biarlah saya tetap buta sampai dengan akhir ajal saya, yang penting kita bisa berkumpul dengan penuh kasih
sayang untuk selama-lamanya.!”

Karena kasih kepada istrinya ia rela berkorban. Ia rela untuk hidup sebagai seorang tuna netra untuk selama-lamanya, apakah kita bersedia dan mau berkorban untuk orang yang kita kasihi seperti cerita yang tersebut diatas?

Tidak semua orang tunatera ingin bisa melihat kembali seperti pengarang dari lagu “Blessed Assurance”, dimana ia memberikan kesaksiannya dalam lagu tersebut. Fanny Crosby, yang telah membuat komposisi dari ribuan lagu, pada saat ia berusia enam minggu ia menderita penyakit infeksi yang mengakibatkan ia menjadi buta dan dalam usia delapan tahun, pada saat anak-anak lain sedang bermain diluar dengan cerianya ia menulis puisi yang tercantum dibawah ini:

Oh, what a happy soul am I! Although I cannot see, I am resolved that in this world contented I shall be. How many blessings I enjoy that other people don’t. To weep and sigh because I’m blind, I cannot–and I won’t!

Kotak Sabun, Pensil dan Cermin

Seringkali kita terkecoh saat menghadapi suatu masalah, dan walaupun masalah tersebut terpecahkan, tetapi pemecahan yang ada bukanlah suatu pemecahan yang efisien dan justru malah terlalu rumit.

Kasus 1

Salah satu dari kasus yang ada adalah kasus kotak sabun yang kosong, yang terjadi di salah satu perusahaan kosmetik yang terbesar di Jepang. Perusahaan tersebut menerima keluhan dari pelanggan yang mengatakan bahwa ia telah membeli kotak sabun (terbuat dari bahan kertas) kosong. Dengan segera pimpinan perusahaan menceritakan masalah tersebut ke bagian pengepakan yang bertugas untuk memindahkan semua kotak sabun yang telah dipak ke departemen pengiriman. Karena suatu alasan, ada satu kotak sabun yang terluput dan mencapai bagian pengepakan dalam keadaan kosong.

Tim manajemen meminta para teknisi untuk memecahkan masalah tersebut. Dengan segera, para teknisi bekerja keras untuk membuat sebuah mesin sinar X dengan monitor resolusi tinggi yang dioperasikan oleh dua orang untuk melihat semua kotak sabun yang melewati sinar tersebut dan memastikan bahwa kotak tersebut tidak kosong. Tak diragukan lagi, mereka bekerja keras dan cepat tetapi biaya yang dikeluarkan pun
tidak sedikit.

Tetapi saat ada seorang karyawan di sebuah perusahaan kecil dihadapkan pada permasalahan yang sama, ia tidak berpikir tentang hal-hal yang rumit, tetapi ia muncul dengan solusi yang berbeda. Ia membeli sebuah kipas angin listrik untuk industri yang memiliki tenaga cukup besar dan mengarahkannya ke garis pengepakan. Ia menyalakan kipas angin tersebut, dan setiap ada kotak sabun yang melewati kipas angin tersebut, kipas tersebut meniup kotak sabun yang kosong keluar dari jalur pengepakan, karena kotak sabun terbuat dari bahan kertas yang ringan.

Kasus 2

Pada saat NASA mulai mengirimkan astronot ke luar angkasa, mereka menemukan bahwa pulpen mereka tidak bisa berfungsi di gravitasi nol, karena tinta pulpen tersebut tidak dapat mengalir ke mata pena. Untuk memecahkan masalah tersebut, mereka menghabiskan waktu satu dekade dan 12 juta dolar. Mereka mengembangkan sebuah pulpen yang dapat berfungsi pada keadaan-keadaan seperti gravitasi nol, terbalik, dalam air, dalam berbagai permukaan termasuk kristal dan dalam derajat temperatur mulai
dari di bawah titik beku sampai lebih dari 300 derajat Celcius.

Dan apakah yang dilakukan para orang Rusia? Mereka menggunakan pensil!

Kasus 3

Suatu hari, pemilik apartemen menerima komplain dari pelanggannya. Para pelanggan mulai merasa waktu tunggu mereka di pintu lift terasa lama seiring bertambahnya penghuni di apartemen itu. Dia (pemilik) mengundang sejumlah pakar untuk memecahkan masalah ini. Satu pakar menyarankan agar menambah jumlah lift. Tentu, dengan bertambahnya lift, waktu tunggu jadi berkurang. Pakar lain meminta pemilik untuk mengganti lift yang lebih cepat, dengan asumsi, semakin cepat orang
terlayani. Kedua saran tadi tentu memerlukan biaya yang tidak sedikit.

Tetapi, satu pakar lain hanya menyarankan satu hal, “Inti dari keluhan pelanggan anda adalah mereka merasa lama menunggu”. Pakar tadi hanya menyarankan untuk menginvestasikan kaca cermin di depan lift, agar pelanggan teralihkan perhatiannya dari pekerjaan “menunggu” dan merasa “tidak menunggu lift”.

Moral cerita ini adalah sebuah filosofi yang disebut KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid), yaitu selalu mencari solusi yang sederhana, sehingga bahkan orang bodoh sekalipun dapat melakukannya. Cobalah menyusun solusi yang paling sederhana dan memungkinkan untuk memecahkan masalah yang ada. Maka dari itu, kita harus belajar untuk fokus pada solusi daripada pada berfokus pada masalah.

Physics Exam

Describe how to determine the height of a skyscraper with a barometer

The following concerns a question in a physics degree exam at the University of Copenhagen:

“Describe how to determine the height of a skyscraper with a barometer.”

One student replied:

“You tie a long piece of string to the neck of the barometer, then lower the barometer from the roof of the skyscraper to the ground. The length of the string plus the length of the barometer will equal the height of the building.”

This highly original answer so incensed the examiner that the student was failed immediately. He appealed on the grounds that his answer was indisputably correct, and the university appointed an independent arbiter to decide the case. The arbiter judged that the answer was indeed correct, but did not display any noticeable knowledge of physics. To resolve the problem it was decided to call the student in and allow him six minutes in which to provide a verbal answer which showed at least a minimal familiarity with the basic principles of physics. For five minutes the student sat in silence, forehead creased in thought. The arbiter reminded him that time was running out, to which the student replied that he had several extremely relevant answers, but couldn’t make up his mind which to use. On being advised to hurry up the student replied as follows:

“Firstly, you could take the barometer up to the roof of the skyscraper, drop it over the edge, and measure the time it takes to reach the ground. The height of the building can then be worked out from the formula H = 0.5g x t squared. But bad luck on the barometer.

“Or if the sun is shining you could measure the height of the barometer, then set it on end and measure the length of its shadow. Then you measure the length of the skyscraper’s shadow, and thereafter it is a simple matter of proportional arithmetic to work uut the height of the skyscraper.

“But if you wanted to be highly scientific about it, you could tie a short piece of string to the barometer and swing it like a pendulum, first at ground level and then on the roof of the skyscraper. The height is worked out by the difference in the gravitational restoring force T = 2 pi sqrroot (l/g).

“Or if the skyscraper has an outside emergency staircase, it would be easier to walk up it and mark off the height of the skyscraper in barometer lengths, then add them up.

“If you merely wanted to be boring and orthodox about it, of course, you could use the barometer to measure the air pressure on the roof of the skyscraper and on the ground, and convert the difference in millibars into feet to give the height of the building.

But since we are constantly being exhorted to exercise independence of mind and apply scientific methods, undoubtedly the best way would be to knock on the janitor’s door and say to him ‘If you would like a nice new barometer, I will give you this one if you tell me the height of this skyscraper’.”

The student was Nils Bohr, the first Dane to win the Nobel prize for Physics.

Beyond Perception

An atheist professor of philosophy speaks to his class on the problem science has with God, the Almighty.
He asks one of his new students to stand and…..

Prof: So you believe in God?
Student: Absolutely, sir.
Prof: Is God good?
Student: Sure.
Prof: Is God all-powerful?
Student: Yes.
Prof: My brother died of cancer even though he prayed to God to heal him.
Most of us would attempt to help others who are ill. But God didn’t. How is this God good then? Hmm?
(Student is silent.)
Prof: You can’t answer, can you? Let’s start again, young fellow. Is God good?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Is Satan good?
Student: No
Prof: Where does Satan come from?
Student: From…God…
Prof: That’s right. Tell me son, is there evil in this world?
Student: Yes.
Prof: Evil is everywhere, isn’t it? And God did make everything. Correct?
Student: Yes.
Prof: So who created evil?
(Student does not answer.)
Prof: Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things exist in the world, don’t they?
Student: Yes, sir.
Prof: So, who created them?
(Student has no answer.)
Prof: Science says you have 5 senses you use to identify and serve the world around you. Tell me, son…Have you ever seen God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Tell us if you have ever heard your God?
Student: No, sir.
Prof: Have you ever felt your God, tasted your God, and smelled your God? Have you ever had any sensory perception of God for that matter?
Student: No, sir. I’m afraid I haven’t.
Prof: Yet you still believe in Him?
Student: Yes.
Prof: According to empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your GOD doesn’t exist. What do you say to that, son?
Student: Nothing. I only have my faith.
Prof: Yes, faith. And that is the problem science has.
Student: Professor, is there such a thing as heat?
Prof: Yes.
Student: And is there such a thing as cold?
Prof: Yes.
Student: No sir. There isn’t.
(The lecture theatre becomes very quiet with this turn of events.)
Student: Sir, you can have lots of heat, even more heat, superheat, mega heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat.
But we don’t have any thing called cold. We can hit 458 degrees below zero which is no heat, but we can’t go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold. Cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it.
(There is pin-drop silence in the lecture theatre.)
Student: What about darkness, Professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?
Prof: Yes. What is night if there isn’t darkness?
Student: You’re wrong again, sir. Darkness is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light…. But if you have no light constantly, you have nothing and it is called darkness, isn’t it? In reality, darkness isn’t. If it were you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn’t you?
Prof: So what is the point you are making, young man?
Student: Sir, my point is your philosophical premise is flawed.
Prof: Flawed? Can you explain how?
Student: Sir, you are working on the premise of duality. You argue there is life and then there is death, a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure. Sir, science can’t even explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life: just the absence of it. Now tell me, Professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from a monkey?
Prof: If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, yes, of course, I do.
Student: Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?
(The Professor shakes his head with a smile, beginning to realize where the argument is going.)
Student: Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an on-going endeavor, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you not a scientist but a preacher?
(The class is in uproar.)
Student: Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the Professor’s brain?
(The class breaks out into laughter.)
Student: Is there anyone here who has ever heard the Professor’s brain, felt it, touched or smelled it?….. No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, sir. With all due respect, sir, how do we then trust your lectures, sir?
(The room is silent. The professor stares at the student.)
Prof: I guess you’ll have to take them on faith, son.
Student: That is it, sir.. The link between man & god is FAITH. That is all that keeps things moving and alive.
Guess who that young man was ?


FINANCIAL FREEDOM ala Tukang Becak vs Howard Schultz (Starbucks)


Perbedaannya akan bagaikan langit dan bumi.
Berapa besar space yang ada “di dalam box” tsb ? Relatif Berapa besar space yang ada “di luar box” tsb ? WOW! No Limit
Coba kita lupakan segenap teori canggih dunia entrepreneurship (ttg  modal usaha, skill, keberanian untuk memulai usaha, dst,dst).  
Sementara banyak orang yang masih harus bergelut dalam kesibukan bisnis setiap hari setelah 10 tahun berbisnis, mari kita simak kisah ilustrasi seorang TUKANG BECAK tamatan SD yang sudah mencapai “financial freedom” setelah bekerja hanya lebih kurang 5 tahun saja, dgn “passive income” Rp. 9 juta/bulan !!!
Becak ke-1 :
==> Seorang tukang becak memiliki becak motor dengan penghasilan bersih Rp. 60,000/hari (bekerja dari pagi hingga larut malam). Biaya hidupnya sekitar Rp. 30,000/hari. Lalu ia berjuang utk konsisten menabung Rp. 30,000/hari. Dalam tempo 400 hari, ia mampu membeli becak kedua yang harganya Rp. 12 juta/unit.
Becak Ke-2 :
==> Ia sewakan becak keduanya dengan tarif Rp. 30,000/hari. Sementara ia tetap menarik becak pertamanya. Sekarang ia bisa menabung Rp. 60,000/hari. Dalam tempo 200 hari, ia mampu membeli becak ketiga.
Becak Ke-3 :
==> Ia sewakan becak ketiganya, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 90,000/hari. Dalam tempo 134 hari, ia membeli becak ke-4.

Becak Ke-4 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 120,000/hari.
Dalam tempo 100 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.Becak Ke-5 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 150,000/hari. Dalam tempo 80 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.
Becak Ke-6 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 180,000/hari. Dalam tempo 67 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.
Becak Ke-7 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 210,000/hari. Dalam tempo 57 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.
Becak Ke-8 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 240,000/hari. Dalam tempo 50 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.

Becak Ke-9 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 270,000/hari. Dalam tempo 45 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.

Becak Ke-10 :
==> Ia sewakan becak tsb, sehingga sekarang ia mampu menabung Rp. 300,000/hari. Dalam
tempo 40 hari, ia membeli becak baru lagi.Setelah becak ke-10, ia berhenti menarik becak. Ia sewakan becak pertamanya ke orang lain. Ia lalu menggaji seorang “mandor” untuk mengurusi ke-10 becaknya. Ia PENSIUN. Kini ia menikmati penghasilan Rp. 300,000/hari, atau Rp. 9 juta/bulan (sebelum potong gaji sang mandor). Jika ditotal semua usahanya tsb hanya dicapai dalam tempo 3,2 TAHUN SAJA.============ =======
Tentu saja ini cuma sebuah ilustrasi, dengan menarik garis lurus dari sebuah bisnis. Katakanlah dalam tempo 10 tahun (bukan 3,2 tahun seperti dalam ilustrasi), sang TUKANG BECAK mampu mencapainya. Ini LOGIS, dan bisa terjadi.
Berapa banyak TUKANG BECAK di dunia yang seperti itu ? Mungkin 1 banding 10 juta. Tetapi ADA.
Berapa banyak TUKANG BECAK di dunia yang menjadi tukang becak seumur hidupnya dan terus hidup susah ? Buanyyaaak sekali.
============ =========
Sekarang bandingkan dengan banyak profesional tamatan S1 ataupun S2, atau bandingkan dengan para pengusaha yang masih harus bergelut dengan kesibukan mencari nafkah setiap hari. Kontras
sekali bukan….THINK OUT OF THE BOX. Perbedaannya akan bagaikan langit dan bumi.
Kunci kesuksesannya terletak pada “duplikasi”. Ini rahasianya : “Jalankan bisnis yang mudah diduplikasikan, dan tidak perlu keterlibatan kita secara penuh dalam bisnis tsb”. Cth : ikuti bisnis franchise yang berpotensi, beli asset lalu sewakan asset tsb, dst.
KUNCI UTAMA LAINNYA adalah : Hidup hemat pada awalnya untuk menabung,  uang tabungan di-investasikan untuk menghasilkan uang, lakukan terus
berulang2, setelah penghasilannya sudah cukup besar, barulah hidup  bersenang2.
============ ========= ========
Mari berhitung matematika …
Jika Anda diberikan 2 option kontrak kerja / kontrak bisnis berikut  ini, mana yang Anda pilih ?
1). Kontrak 2 tahun, tidak dpt dibatalkan, penghasilan/ bulan Rp. 100 juta.
2). Kontrak 2 tahun, tidak dpt dibatalkan, penghasilan di bulan pertama cuma Rp. 1000, tapi berlipat dua setiap bulan.Pilih mana ????
Jawabannya :
Option I : Penghasilan Rp. 100 juta/bln x 24 bln = Rp. 2,4 Milyar
Option II :
Bulan ke-1 : Rp. 1000
3. 4000
4. 8000
5. 16,000
6. 32,000
7. 64,000
8. 128,000
9. 256,000
10. 512,000
11. 1024,000
12. 2 juta
13. 4 juta
14. 8 juta
15. 16 juta
16. 32 juta
17. 64 juta
18. 128 juta
19. 256 juta
20. 512 juta
21. 1 milyar
2 milyar
23. 4 milyar
24. 8 milyar
Jika Anda pilih option I, Anda kecolongan hampir 6 MILYAR !!!
Kita hanya diajari oleh guru di sekolah tentang teori2 Albert Eintein  spt rumus kekuatan bom atom spt “E=MC2”, dst. Tetapi tidak diajarkan bahwa “kekuatan duplikasi” juga dikagumi oleh Albert Eintein, ilmuwan paling cemerlang abad 20, ia mengatakan “Kekuatan duplikasi adalah keajaiban dunia ke delapan”.

Bayangkan seorang pengusaha jenius sekaliber Schultz ( ia baru dijuluki pengusaha jenius setelah sukses, tetapi saat pertama kali menawarkan ide bisnis menjual segelas kopi seharga puluhan ribu  rupiah, ia diteriakin GILA dan ditolak ratusan orang). Ia mampu mengubah produk komoditas murah (kopi) menjadi produk eksklusif (customer-experience) berharga luar biasa mahal. Ia pandai  pula mendapatkan dana segar nan murah melalui GO PUBLIC. Ia pandai pula memanfaatkan media sebagai “public relation” untuk mempromosikan  Starbucks. Ia pandai pula membangun partnership dgn perusahaan global spt Pepsi, dst.
Hasilnya LUAR BIASA. Dengan kekuatan “KONSEP DUPLIKASI”, kedai kopi pertama yang dibangun Schultz tahun 1985, menjelma menjadi lebih dari 10,000 toko di tahun 2006, tersebar di seluruh dunia. Dan terus berlipat GANDA setiap tahun sampai sekarang…. .
Schultz lalu memutuskan untuk PENSIUN. Di tahun 2000, ia menggaji seorang “mandor” utk mengurus jaringan Starbucks nya di seluruh dunia. Tentu saja sang mandor disebut dengan istilah keren “CEO” bernama Orin C. Smith.
sang TUKANG BECAK maupun SCHULTZ sama2 mencapai “financial freedom”. Yang satu pencapaiannya hanya kelas regional, yang satu lagi kelas dunia……
Sedangkan milyaran penduduk dunia tidak pernah mencapai “financial freedom”, walaupun hanya di kelas regional saja….
============ ======
Bila sang TUKANG BECAK tamatan SD mampu melakukannya, seorang tamatan S1 secara logika pasti bisa melakukannya dengan hasil 3 kali  lipat lebih banyak (SD ke S1 kan ada 3 tahap, yakni SMP, SMU, baru  Universitas) ..
Mari kita ambil hikmahnya. Seandainya salah satu dari kita bisa memanfaatkan hikmah tsb dgn TAKE ACTION, semoga financial freedom bisa tercapai dalam 5 tahun mendatang… .Bila Anda bermurah hati, artikel ini bisa dikutip utk disharing ke berbagai pihak, teman2 Anda, rekan2 kerja, famili2, ataupun disharing pada milis2 lainnya. SEmoga bermanfaat bagi kita semua. Semoga kisah Starbucks2 lain bermunculan di bumi Indonesia dalam 5 tahun mendatang… .OK, semoga bermanfaat.
