September 16, 2021
I enjoyed Sharron Martin of Inner Sanctum’s 30 minute video. Click title to view.
She is a friend, a collaborator and a beautiful soul from New Zealand.
I picked out a few quotes.
“Are we really in a pandemic?
[I add: not denying that people are having health problems.
People are sick.
There are multiple factors in baseline health that a viral illness is more of an effect that a cause than is commonly communicated.
There are so many factors in our current health as a population.
If we focus on an effect and not the fundamental causes holistically, we miss great opportunity to create changes to support human health.]
We are in a time of great change and revelation.
We must stand in our power.
Be empowered to see the truth, to demand the truth.
To be in truth … on all levels.
As we discern this in our own lives and our world, we will make new decisions.
We will begin to form our new earth and our new way of being.
What is the real reason for this fight, this division?”
“Are you being led somewhere you want to go?
This is a test for humanity.
An opportunity for awakening [to a more expanded consciousness].
The collective is beginning to awaken.
This is why there are extra pressures being put on.”
“We are beginning to undo 2000 years of programming”.
Sharron shares a cute analogy at the end: The truth will start popping out of holes all around, like the way meerkats pop out of holes and peek out randomly from multiple holes.
Keep an eye, ear, heart out for that.
It is all vibration & frequency.
For some of us who apply wide focus on our own frequency, it feels very clear.
The frequency of media attempts to distract and prevent wider, more holistic perspectives.
It is truly a great time to dream a new dream for our world.
Mary Poppins Returns. I happened to be in the middle of this beautiful movie when the Emergency Alert hit my phone last night to inform of the new Public Health Emergency status for Alberta.
Time to bring more magic into the world.
I define magic as truth not yet optimally perceived.
Same translation for crazy and miracle.
Everything is possible. Even the impossible.
Repeated quote from the new Mary Poppins movie.
Consider a little Movie Medicine, a prescription:
Watch Mary Poppins Returns.
I had collected many Movie Medicine prescriptions on a Facebook Page for years.
Months ago it was deleted, censored fully with no warning or explanation.
I could not recall what might have prompted that.
The last post was about the movie, Captain Fantastic, with Viggo Martenson.
Click the title to view the 2 minute preview.
I recommend this one also.
It depicts a part of our current divide: Living naturally versus corporatocracy.
I wish to be a part of the Naturalization movement.
As in, we all act naturally.
Requires connection to our own essence and heart.
Fear does get in the way of this.
A truly caring leadership structure would make efforts to assuage fear, rather than fan the flames of fear.
And then pour a little gasoline on there.
That is what this latest stunt feels like to me: declaring Alberta in a Public Health State of Emergency. A manufactured emergency.
Worthy of discussion, yet we will have to await the emotions to flow out a bit.
Everyone at the table will need to be capable of respectful participation.
It takes as long as it takes.
I know what true discussion looks and feels like.
Nowhere in sight at the moment.
Proper respectful discussion of the issues with multiple, various perspectives represented.
Can you imagine?
Censorship is creating an illusion that we have no choice.
Alternative approaches to protein particle challenges do exist.
It would take a while.
To be clear: I do not think my style of naturalization is depicted in Captain Fantastic.
There are many shades of natural.
When we have systems that support optimal human health, we will all likely choose less extremes.
It is useful to increase the contrast to enable empowering, solutions-oriented choices.
An analogy for what is happening now in the world.
Contrast increases which can inspire y’all to consider what you truly desire to create.
Make conscious, solutions-oriented choices.
If corruption etc. has been embedded without our system of systems our entire lives, it feels normal in a way. I feel that is part of the challenge.
When the barn is on fire, the horses will be inclined to return to the barn as that is where they associate comfort. Not logical to a survival way of thinking.
Do you value freedom?
That is an important, relevant question.
Do you trust your information systems enough to allow yourself to be divided (and conquered)?
I, respectfully, do not.
Control & authority versus optimal human health.
The game we are all playing right now.
When we are more balanced (basic human needs met), we naturally become more responsible.
Much healing may be required in the psyche.
Supporting the healing paths for everyone would be a great use of focus and resources.
Music is the Doctor: It’s good to get a different point of view.
A line in the song Turning Turtle from Mary Poppins Returns.
When you change the view from where you stood,
the things you view will change for good.
Consider the double meaning here:
For good. As in a state of being.
For good. As in the sense of time. Finally.
To bring awareness of the subconscious mind to the conscious mind … changes everything.
3 key categories of our consciousness challenging our natural, optimal function:
Human consciousness is the basis of Health … and Reality.
This needs to be a part of the conversation in the world now.
All these prescriptions are encouraging whole brain thinking.
Give your Corpus Callosum a bit of love.
Left linear, logical thinking is only part of the equation.
What I mean when I say, Take your eye off the microscope.
I elaborate a bit about Whole-Brain thinking in this article, Falling Off The Edge.

This article resulted in a playlist called Whole Heart – Beautiful Truth playlist Spotify Version.
Whole Heart – Beautiful Truth playlist You Tube Version. A part of the list. Under construction.
Hardest Heart by Blank & Jones did not exist on You Tube initially.
I attempted to create my own You Tube version. Blocked by Copyright.
I am a fan of Open Data collaboration, yet the economic system has distorted our natural tendencies.
I considered reaching out to Blank & Jones. It is a really powerful song in these times.
Ask and you shall receive. 3 months ago, a much more beautiful version was published on You Tube.
I have had good feedback on the Whole Heart playlist.
Prescription: listen daily for 30 days.
If you feel to.
Easiest on Spotify. Free use of the app is available.
It takes time to influence the subconscious mind.
Repetition is required.
Consider the repetitive messages you are choosing to listen to. The powers that were, as I prefer to call them, know this very well also.
Who do you think gave them the power?
Hint: We all did … until we choose otherwise.
I deeply and sincerely believe we can make much better use of our Resources.
From a Facebook Post by James K Newman in a group called Alignment Life:
RISE TO THE REALITY OF WHO WE ARE
It is in the adherence to illusion that conditions like trauma and grief, shame and guilt, anger and resentment, depression or anxiety are manifested.
All that ever need be done to change these chosen responses is to see the reality of what has taken place.
Or is still taking place.
It is the adherence to mind-based illusion that can keep one imprisoned.
Sometimes for a lifetime.
Chose to see the gift, the teacher, the lesson in every occurrence.
And in this, one by one, we will rise together.
Rise to the reality of who we are!
This writing reminds me of the Course in Miracles books.
I read them in 2011.
The intention for the book is to remind you to remember who you actually are.
Repetition of various statements address the remembering.
Subconscious mind hides many beliefs and understandings that may not be optimal.
I am tentative to recommend it. It is a fairly weird read.
I feel there are infinite ways to align to your true state.
Willingness to consider that you may not be in your true state yet is an essential first step.
Follow the Breadcrumb Trail of your inspiration.
Bentinho Massaro speaks of this in the 4 minute video, How Do I Discover My Joy.

Guidance Center versus Control Center.
What are you doing to yourself?
What are you creating?
What do you truly want to create?
Beware the mental prison controlled by the inner harsh parent.
It is a thing commonly occurring within the consciousness of some selves.
What if your thoughts create your reality?
I deeply believe they do.
Feel free to experiment with this concept yourself.
Are you ready yet to explore the Anatomy of a Miracle?
You may even choose the Course in Miracles as I did.
In an Nutshell: A miracle is simply a change in perspective.
Willingness is an essential ingredient.
Natural Laws of Physics exist whether we are aware of them or not.
One of my dreams is for a collective recognition of how much we DO NOT know.
To recognize and understand the Physics of Consciousness more, we likely will find a whole new way to make decisions and use resources.

This title has been on the list of stories to write since September 2017. It flowed in my head on many occasions. Felt kind of silly to write about it. Yet in December 2020, it feels much more relevant. Time passing has only added to the story. I feel to frame my stories in my own unique way. I feel it is worthy of contemplation for everyone. I respect the sovereignty of each individual. I desire to play my part to establish this mutual respect for everyone. My preferred way to do this is to encourage us all to look to the foundations of how our systems came into being. It is an optimal time to begin a new approach by questioning the long list of assumptions that have been made that has created our unsustainable system of systems.
One fine day in September 2017, I was beginning my routine day driving my then 12 year old youngest son to Junior High School. My favored path was engaged. I pass by an Elementary School that exists on a main neighborhood road. Quiet through most hours of the day. For about 20 minutes as school start approaches and 20 minutes after school lets out, it is congested. Hence, I and many others, choose an intersection to join the fray where there is a pedestrian initiated traffic light. When the light is red and stops the full traffic 10-12 of us can turn left with ease and grace. There is an unwritten code that has developed. The vehicle first or second in line sends someone out to engage the pedestrian light so that a cohort of us may turn left. Without this, we could wait 5-10 minutes before finding a safe turning opportunity. One by one, this would create quite the traffic backup. I have lived in the hood for 26 years in two different homes, using this approach during the tiny rush hour (more accurately minutes). I notice as I approach the turn that the traffic light is soon to turn green. Not before I seamlessly make my left turn. I enjoy driving safely and efficiently to my chosen destinations. This day, a police vehicle turns on its lights and appears to want me to pull over. Oh dear.
I choose to be direct and authentic in my style. I ask the officer to consider that this neighborhood traffic flow is smooth and efficient with the left turn he just witnessed. The relevant detail is that the road I turned from does have a stop sign in place. I and the local peeps have each long ago recognized the irrelevance of the stop sign while the traffic light shows red. One risks being rear ended if a stop for the stop sign occurred. A honk at the very least. Mr. Police was quick to report that his presence was in response to an official complaint from a citizen directing their attention to the lack of proper stops at this intersection stop sign. (I know … so petty). He declared that he would issue me a ticket for failing to recognize a traffic signal rather than failing to stop at a stop sign. He was doing me a favor by his own words because the $500 fine for failing to stop at a stop sign was higher than his issued ticket, $340.
This was the second time I was pulled over by the police with my youngest son in the car. He questioned my approach to the officer. I was polite yet shared my views in a calm manner. Lightheartedly, in fact. I enjoy sharing my perspective, haha.
I took a moment to try on the perspective of the person who made the original call which led to the Police Service presence on this 2017 day. (They have not returned, no surprise.) It fills my heart with compassion to feel how someone chose to express their frustration seeing multiple people on a regular daily basis driving through a stop sign. I have my authenticity scale that I play around with based on the consciousness scale shared by David R. Hawkins in his book Power Versus Force. Just go with me here, I have developed my intuitive abilities and I find it helpful. In March, 2020, I wrote an article describing the concept: Scale of Consciousness/Authenticity Scale – A Practical Tool. (Click title to view. My main objective in writing it out is to connect with others who may wish to collaborate with me.) For the individual who phoned the police to complain, I vibe 360. Full authenticity is 1000. I do gently encourage you not to be offended by this. It is by no means an attempt to be about hierarchy with my fellow human beings. I do see a great need for us to find ways to understand each other better. Consider this scale to represent how wide an awareness can be held by an individual. How many perspectives can be simultaneously held?
Consciousness is the basis of reality so I feel to be radically honest and transparent with this conceptual framework. I can also authentically say, we are all broken – to greater and lesser degrees and in a variety of different ways. Increasing awareness within ourselves is a fabulous start to raise the stage and change the conversation.
I desire deeply and sincerely to be a part of creating new frameworks towards solutions that support my personal mission statement:
To enable and empower optimal human health.
I cannot see how we will do this without considering how our systems support or interfere with the evolution of natural human beings.
My favorite questions right now:
What is natural for a human being?
How do natural human beings behave when in an empowered state of being?
I have come to believe that it is the mindset that determines this. There is room for a wide variety of mindsets to live and allow others to live harmoniously. However, I see a collective mindset that is caught up in the police state of mind. This chosen mindset is quite fixated on controlling the behavior of others. If this was not the case, nearly everything I have chosen to express on my two websites would be completely irrelevant. I would not feel any inspiration to share my perspective. Yet, here we are …
I interject here with my favorite fundamental questions:
What is a human being? Truly.
What is reality?
I dream of collaborating widely with many different people or groups on these two questions. To understand the variety of perspectives to the answers to these questions would create much understanding about how much choice is available to each individual. Not being consciously aware of one’s own mindset leads to much confusion and misunderstanding.
Unity consciousness, for me, does not require that we all agree with each other. Yet, to obliviously move through life requiring submission by all who coexist with you leads to much divisiveness and conflict. To gain understanding of the various mindsets and perspectives, I feel would naturally lead to the creation of new ways of establishing order. Natural order. This requires willingness.
Unity comes with understanding. Agreement is not necessary.
Yet basic respect cannot exist without some level of understanding. Transparency and radical honesty goes a long way towards World Peace. Even if it gets a little more chaotic before it improves, I prescribe this for any community: family, neighborhood, city, province, country, world.
After living through the lockdown era of 2020/2021, I feel we would all enjoy interacting together more than ever before.
Back to my story.
Upon first receiving the ticket, I had planned to simply pay it – with annoyance. As time passed, I recognized that I could not plead guilty to such an inaccurate charge. I planned to attend the automatically assigned traffic court date. It turned out I experienced a health crisis that prevented my attending in the first week of 2018. Upon recovering, I attended traffic court to request a 2nd date be issued. This began an education about the insanity of traffic court and the traffic law legal system. I adopted a friend’s euphamism the Just Us System. I witness many other laymen presentations to the court. Humans are so creative. I found it fascinating. I just absorbed it. I had once before represented myself in traffic court decades earlier. I included the details in a story Rules Are Meant To Be Broken years ago. (Click title to read.)
I was last to be heard. Request granted for another court date opportunity. I showed up to the reassigned day. I presented to a young woman administering in the courtroom. She had a robotic tone and tempo to her speech, not commonly experienced in my life interacting in the world. She used such fancy legal terms and was badgering me to just plead guilty rather than be heard in court. She stated that the officer had signed in and there was no way I would be successful. I truly was not expecting to be successful in that way. Yet, I desired to play out the scenario in order to have my own experience. I wanted to be heard. My biggest point was that I was driving safely. Pedestrians crossed the main road on my right. I deeply desired to ask the question, Is there a more safe time to turn left than when all cross traffic is stopped at a red light?
Yet, in the end, the Just Us system does not allow for reflection or contemplation about what is safe. It is a strange robotic assembly line that acts like a computer with limited actions available to choose. It feels to me like a feeble system to make it appear that individual citizens have any opportunity to discuss the fundamental issues and ensure their rights are not interfered with. It is a system to support payment of traffic fines. It has no mandate to consider the context of events. I knew this. Yet was inspired to follow through. Partly as I wish to see systems transform to support health, harmony and safety in the world.
My case was left to last again. Good in that I could gain more experience about how the system worked with the other cases. Not my preference as there were no witnesses present who were not a part of the incestuous system. It turned out that the officer was NOT present. I wondered if this might have been in my favor. Nope. Gave perspective about why the clerk pushed hard for me to plead guilty. Shocked at the strangeness of it. I expressed to the courtroom that she had clearly stated the officer had checked in. She flatly expressed to the courtroom that she had mistaken. He was attending a course that day.
I am requested to agree to adjourn. I do not. I ask for the matter to be handled that day.
Well, the Judge waxed eloquently out loud about the factors he takes into account in making his decision. I forget the details yet it was quite a long, slow soliloquy. I was dumbfounded. Key to his decision was the fact that I had missed a date also. True that. So another date way down the track was assigned.
So that date arrives. I present myself to the clerk. As I wait for the court to open, I am approached by the officer. He happened to be wearing what appeared more like an army camouflage uniform. He was quite a handsome fellow which had escaped me on our first meeting. He was authoritative yet polite. He was informing me that I will not win. He truly felt he was wasting his time (which I silently agreed that he was). I sensed that he was disappointed. He had done me that favor, remember? Issuing me a lower dollar value ticket. For me, it was not about the money. I had come this far. I wished to be heard. And for the full experience.
It is challenging to describe in words how my consciousness experienced being processed by the Just Us system. I am intuitive and perceptive in ways beyond the five physical senses. It was uncomfortable for me to see this system at work. Each individual has a small, conscripted task to play out. All the rules and regulations limit true communication. I was heard describing the context of my safe left turn. They are not at all concerned with safety. The energetic, almost sexual excitement, felt from the Prosecuting lawyer when he asked if I stopped at the stop sign and I said no. I find it so unpleasant to witness mental masturbation in my presence.
Not that I am not guilty of it also at times. He was exuberant like a hunter after the kill is made hearing my answer.
“Next!” So I experienced first hand that context is not relevant in this arena. It is like computer code: either a zero or a one. Safety has nothing to do with it. Energetically, I felt it was very powerful for me to state out loud to the entrained individuals remaining in the courtroom, “I will continue to drive safely”. I authentically needed to declare this truth. Implied is the futility of the work that occurs in Traffic Court. When there is no space for context, I see this as a dehumanizing system. The premise of the Traffic Safety Laws are to ensure safety on the roads. I do appreciate how petty this is. Yet it is a safe and simple analogy as to how all of our systems work. I appreciate that many could debate my approach from many different perspectives. This knee-jerk style of attempting to negate any sincere concerns has been running in a loop from time immemorial. I nudge you to consider widely how accustomed we have all become with systems that are not as fundamentally supporting to optimal human health as we might have been entrained to believe. I ask you to consider what you are complicit to. The most available choice accessible via mainstream media messaging is a form of complicity. World culture prefers to keep doing things as they have always been done. It is not celebrated to consider major system changes. Yet.
When all of our systems defy their “raison d’etre” on a daily, systematic basis, how do we develop harmony and order? I believe these things are an essential part of optimal human health.
So this silly story I hope might give some tangible demonstration about my little consciousness assessment of “360”. The rules and regulations taken without context creates a very different world than if we were committed to evaluation based on basic principles and vision.
I was unable to verify the date of the onset of the Alberta Traffic Safety Act. I imagine it was initiated decades ago. Then updated regularly since. So the whole setup and framework started long ago.
How related is the City’s requirement for financial resources to the number, amount and style of traffic tickets issued?
I have learned that my city is one of the most prolific in the country issuing photo radar speeding tickets. There are many perspectives. I know my own oldest son has adopted the concept that to avoid speeding is the best way to avoid tickets. Truth to that. Yet the radars tend to be setup where the signed traffic maximum could very well be 10 km/hour faster. So the cash generating ability is maximized. So, yes, a polarizing issue in a way. My point is more about encouraging us to be willing to evolve. What is the purpose and vision?
If safe driving is the main purpose and vision, I offer that we can do this without the Alberta Traffic Act. Robotic systems lead to robotic citizens. It is a trend.
Do you think it is optimal to be robotic?
I do not.
I happened to receive 2 additional traffic tickets for driving faster than the posted limit. One was just at the onset of lockdown in March. My photo was taken. Clear to see that I am all by myself on the 4 lane Calgary Trail north. I had picked up my son and his friend from a movie theater. I was driving safely. 12 km/hour about the posted limit. 100% safe with the context of 11pm and almost no traffic. The truth is I was enjoying conversation with the 2 young men. I reflect on every ticket I have ever received, I was driving safely. As I always do.
We were born into this police state of mind society. I recall just complying with the system years ago, knowing I would pay a couple or five hundred dollars annually with the City of Edmonton photo radar system. An extra tax.
The most recent ticket I received was given in person. Again, with my youngest son. An officer hides behind a pole with a handheld pointing device. Well, going 62 km/hour on a 4 lane road with almost no traffic. Yes, chatting with my interesting son. Driving safely, as always. I felt to tell the officer that he has a soul-sucking job. I said it sincerely, calmly and kindly.
My son later questioned that choice, yet the officer visibly drooped. He agreed. Then went on to describe how many people had shouted at him that afternoon during the issuance of a speeding ticket. I did not add to his burden. Yet, I clearly stated that I was driving safely. I went on to share with him that he is in a better position than I am to speak to the questionable practice of issuing tickets on roads where the speed limit would naturally be posted 10 or more km/hour higher if safety was the only issue. I, like most drivers, drive in the context of the situation. Extra attention with pedestrians nearby. Slower when congested traffic is at play. Etc. Do we really need little detailed, robotic rules and regulations?
When we are all in an optimal state, I firmly believe we do not.
This is just one of the systems that impacts our lives. There is quite a lot of entanglement showing itself these days. Most of our systems were initiated generations ago. One suboptimally setup system informing another and another.
When do we look deeper into the visions and values of each major system?
If, as a society, we desired to enable and empower optimal human health, we would need to re-evaluate everything that was setup long ago.
Do we value meeting basic human needs for all citizens?
If not, why not?
Once we get that in place, human beings naturally step into their best fit role to contribute and nourish their soul.
It is natural for a human being.
Being responsible to one’s self and others is natural for a human being who has been able to meet basic needs.
Our current unsustainable system of systems has created a lot of trauma to a lot of people. That will require some masterful solutions. Many hands, with hearts engaged and soul nourishing roles, make light work.
For The Record:
I will no longer participate in the Legal System. Otherwise known as the “Just Us” system. I will not accept anymore tickets for driving safely. I will not pay any money for driving safely, at the speed that I feel is appropriate to the environment. That may be above posted speed limits.
I encourage us all to NOT prop up a house of cards that is due to fall. It is falling. There is no need to help to build it again.

Tuesday, June 30th, 2020
I start this clarion call in June 2020. During the post-lockdown era that began in March 2020. Where the decision to wear or not wear a mask is on the minds of many. I observe so many of us feeling inspired to make an authentic contribution on this contextual backdrop.
Issues of polarity are many, and it appears the gap between each side has widened. Ultimately, it would seem that the most relevant truth to be known could reduce this gap. And yet … here we are.
I have long described our world as an unsustainable system of systems. The truth is much more relative than is commonly understood.
JP Sears recently shared a 5 minute video parody, “How to Get Angrier at People You Disagree With”. Click title to view. He pokes fun at a collection of groups.
Certainly a nudge towards the more peaceful option to “agree to disagree”.
A new approach is beckoning.
We truly need a new Truth System to develop making collective decisions that support our world in Unity (I define here as understanding).
It is definitely not about assigning right or wrong. We require a new template to establish a process to make decisions that affect all of us.
I have many ideas.
The biggest roadblocks:
Willingness to create a new process.
Ability to identify the problems: areas that require exploration for better outcomes.
I am beyond convinced that our current model of collective decision- making is simply suboptimal. Broken even.
This impacts Every. Single. One of us.
Bentinho Massaro offers some pearls of wisdom in his 19 minute video, “This Rude Awakening & The Endgame of Unity”. Click on title to view.
What is required now is Regenerative solutions, not simply sustainable ones. We have sustained the status quo long enough.
Heartmath Institute’s 4 minute video on “The Importance of Resilience” describes the optimal physical state of coherence.
In a nutshell: I see the need for the optimal people in an optimal state of coherence and personal awareness to collaborate in a whole new way in order to discover solutions that work for everyone.
We require a whole new Truth System.
Completely outside of our current unsustainable system of systems with the over-representation of control and authority.
I feel I am one of many of us that have been developing ourselves to have a role in positive system change. In this article, I hope to attract the perfect storm of individuals to start to develop a group of approximately 10-13 people with the diverse skillsets required for the task of introducing a Solutions Service: to develop plans and strategies for solutions.
My personal mantra is to enable and empower optimal human health.
This or something similar would be the basis of establishing solutions. My 53 years on the planet showed me that the systems as they exist act as a roadblock to establishing optimal human health for the majority of earth citizens.
Is this a valid exploration in your own mind?
My sense is the mission statement sets a solid foundation for assessing solutions.
Can we collectively agree that this is a worthwhile aim? Optimal Human Health? I do believe our current normal is better termed suboptimal.
To truly dive into this purpose, requires a lot of collaboration and exploration.
We would need to get curious and question assumptions.
We might need a large table to collect the variety of expertise and experience required for issues of collective importance. Health is one of those.
Tribunals of Truth. Has a ring to it.
We would not want to exclude any sincere, high integrity groups from that table.
A table like this has not been set within my lifetime, as far as I know.
The most efficient and effective way to find solutions begins with an honest and sincere description and inventory of the problems. Identifying them at the most foundational level accessible.
To be optimally effective, each individual seated at the table would be highly self-aware.
Here is where the challenges start to line up.
How do we define self-awareness?
I feel it exists on a spectrum, like every human characteristic.
How would we determine the “threshold”?
How do we assess self-awareness?
Who is best suited to assess this for each participant at the round table?
There are many entanglements and mindsets within our larger community.
I have long known this is a good model to solve any and all world problems.
Without willingness, this would never be enacted.
How uncomfortable do we need to become before we are willing to develop an efficient, effective way to optimally make community decisions?
It appears we may be discovering this soon in the post-lockdown world.
Possible ways to assess an individual? I share my first brainstorm how to actualize a method (this would ideally be collaboratively arrived at):
1. Assess whether whole brain thinking is taking place. Would an EEG be a simple way to assess? I wonder if psychologists have developed questionnaire-style assessment tools yet. I have had the idea of creating a short video, created with discernment, that upon assessing the reaction of a person after viewing would be clearly delineating whether someone functions purely left-brain, right-brain or whole brain. This feels like a relevant marker to be aware of for all team members in a roundtable environment. To enable unity. By unity, I mean understanding. Not for using in a polarizing, judgmental way. The challenge is that the less self-aware individuals risk feeling offended by this whole process. Masterful facilitation is required along with a basic willingness of participants. I envision the initial groups would demonstrate this to the skeptical. Initial steps would include discovering a collective problem to sample this theory.
2. A group of 5 suitable “psychics” who have developed the gifts of assessing state of being. I choose 5 as it would allow for a more holistic assessment. I recognize that this may feel concerning to some. It is not about judging, ranking and sorting. More about one modality taken in consideration with other physical measurements.
3. Heart-rate variability assessment via heart monitor can estimate coherence as described by the Heartmath Institute.
4. Assessment of the EMF (electromagnetic field) or similar. I have no knowledge in this area yet I invite the appropriate collaboration with a variety of individuals interested in exploring the theory I present here. I desire connecting with experts in the field of biophysics. I sense all this exists already, it has not found its way to wider attention … yet.
5. Authenticity Scale: 0-1000 modified from the Scale of Consciousness first described by David R. Hawkins in the book Power versus Force.
6. Mindset awareness. By discussing current issues to assess whether accessing 4-point logic. If only 2-point logic being used, and polarized style of assessing current events, then novel solutions serving everyone collectively are MUCH less likely to be formulated by an individual. This is relevant to add to the exploration of the people best suited to sit at a roundtable to assess collective problems with the aim of creating long and short-range solutions to serve everyone.
7. Willingness to collaborate to develop a novel Truth System.
I include a Highwire video link, 2 hours long to direct you to a short clip at 1 hour 51 minutes. (I cued up the link).
I happened to simply peek in at 1:51 and resonated strongly with Denis Rancort’s response to the question, “What should be the policy?”
“Our policy moving forward, what do you think we should do?”
They are discussing the Covid-19 situation.
His answer was perfection to my eye.
A key quote:
“(We need) to hold people responsible for the decisions they made in the absence of science”.
I will boldly state that there is no system setup to enable this very important task.
Yet. I always like to include the “yet”.
I, weeks back, chose to subscribe to the Highwire YouTube channel yet almost never actually watched any of the videos. I quickly became saturated by the polarizing machinations of the various issues. Until this unique moment. I am hoping to give the reader “raw data” about how efficiently one can live when they hold a strong physical coherence and have clear alignment to their specific role/dreams/purpose.
There is a lot of data out there.
It would be fairly easy to collect a myriad of differing, polarizing opinions on any topic du jour.
To consume all that exists and competes for our attention feels neither efficient or effective.
I have intended to only understand an issue well enough to be able to create a framework for the solution.
This does not require me to know very many details.
It is naturally how my mind has worked my entire adult life.
I will add in another key concept that caught my eye when I went back to 1:34 to find the beginning of the Denis Rancort, PhD
(Ontario Civil Liberties Association) interview.
“Winter burden all cause mortality”– the same this year. Consistent for decades. Interesting …
I feel to share a small, not too challenging, “true to my life” example from 15 years ago.
I earned a playful moniker as “a snack nazi” following the front page publication in my neighborhood newspaper, The Riverbend Rag, of a letter I had written to the Edmonton Public School Board.
It was far from my intention to appear on the front page of the sweet little neighborhood paper.
A friend of mine was the Editor and a fellow Education Advocate at the time.
I shared the letter with her and she asked if she could publish it. The front page status startled me.
(A low news day to be sure. Haha)
The topic: snack policies in the school system. My oldest child, daughter, reported that she had enjoyed an entire donut to celebrate a classmate’s birthday.
It acted as the straw that broke the camel’s back. I had, over 3 years, become quite horrified at the volumes of non-nutritious snacks consumed by school children. It appeared a sloppy lack of attention to the health of students.
This may appear so trivial, yet it is a clear small example of what I am encouraging on a grander collective scale.
Prior to taking it to the district level, I had presented my concerns to the parent council, including the Principal and a Teacher representative.
Looking back, my stance was confident, clear and even hierarchical. Not the optimal way to enact change, I now know.
I was truly shocked by the response to what seemed so logical and “backed by Science”. Yet my concern was definitively and nearly unanimously shot down.
To be clear, I was not proposing elimination of junk food but a policy to consider the responsibility to maintain a balance between shared treats and health. Portion control. Some gentle encouraging policies to guide families as they sent the volumes of treats to school. What I naturally did with my children when they were in my care.
I clearly stated I could not support a teacher handing out full doughnuts to grade 2 students. My rare habit was to purchase a doughnut and cut it into 4 pieces. I had playfully learned that I enjoy tasting and the second bite offers not much addition to the first bite.
(Yes, I have learned how ridiculous this sounds to most people. And yet, that was my authentic, educated choice.)
I took photos of large piles of candy associated with each event:
Birthdays (over 30 children in the classroom at the time)
I can tell you, each portion was far more than I would ever choose to put into my own adult body.
Having practiced as a Family Physician, I had given this issue a lot of thought over the years.
I landed firmly on step 1: portion control.
I sincerely felt this was a reasonable solution.
Reflecting back on this today, I recognize that I was hurt by the response. And I learned that my approach was not optimal.
The biggest reason I felt to share this anecdote was based on a beautiful conversation with my daughter recently, in 2020.
15 years later.
My daughter is now a practicing Dietician working at a local hospital.
I recalled this memory to her and she was inspired to hear all the details.
She followed with what I now wish I had recorded.
Firstly, she recounted how all of my concerns have been met with policy at the district level.
Secondly, she eloquently reviewed her knowledge about how to inspire change.
Her knowledge obtained during her Program sounded like a TED talk.
I would have loved to hear that 15 minutes presentation prior to approaching what to my training felt to be very straight forward.
She reviewed the baby step by baby step process of initiating change of behavior.
I happen to have a current example of taking action to communicate my desire for change from my life today.
The Flouride in drinking water issue. That likely a majority of you may not feel is an issue.
I understand that, just so you know. A polarizing issue to my perspective.
My Letter via the City of Edmonton website:
“I was pleased to hear from Epcor that the city water is not being fluoridated while an upgrade is installed.
They mentioned that it is the City of Edmonton that mandates fluoride be added to water.
There is ample scientific evidence to suggest that fluoride is a neurotoxin.
Long ago, the focus on bones & teeth took center stage.
I, and many others I know, spend money to ensure we do not drink water that contains Flouride.
I encourage the City to revisit the choice to add flouride into the water.
There is a court case that I am aware of underway in the US.
I recognize that this is yet another polarizing issue in our community.
Yet, I believe we all share the desire for optimal health.
Historical decisions benefit from re-assessment.
Thank you for serious consideration of this fundamental support of the most health beneficial water supply for Edmonton citizens.
I am concerned that polarizing issues are challenging to address.
I am a retired Family Physician so am well aware that this would be seen as controversial by many, including Health Professionals.
A decade of contemplation about SO many health issues, I have come to feel that a formal Tribunal is a possible tool to review important issues in our world.
Best to include a vast array of multidisciplinary people ensuring to represent all perspectives.
To be most beneficial, this would require inclusion of “non-allopathic” professionals also. And a wide array of high integrity individuals at arm’s length of the health field.
I am very concerned that our world requires structures to discover the most optimal truth for everyone.
To my perspective, these do not exist. Yet.
Edmonton could create a beautiful new model that the citizens would come to embrace.
I believe, now more than ever, we all want community decisions to reflect an optimal support of general health.
Their response after 1 day (impressive turnaround):
“Good morning Angele,
Thank you for your email regarding fluoride in the water. I can understand your concerns and would be happy to assist you.
Fluoride is added to Edmonton’s drinking water under terms of a 1966 plebiscite (Edmontonians supported). EPCOR manages Edmonton’s drinking water to ensure it is among the best in the world. Edmonton’s drinking water meets or exceeds all required and recommended health and regulatory standards, including Guidelines for Canadian Drinking Water Quality, Health Canada.
The Canadian Dental Association supports fluoridation, as it benefits all residents in a community, regardless of age, socioeconomic status, education or employment.
The amount of fluoride in our drinking water is 0.7 parts per million (ppm), the optimum level approved by a Health Canada expert panel; changed from 0.8 ppm in 2009. Fluoride dosing is continuously monitored and reported daily to Alberta Environment.
I have submitted your comments under reference number 8021491630 for review.
More information from the Health Canada expert panel report can be found online at https://www.canada.ca/en/health-canada/services/environmental-workplace-health/reports-publications/water-quality/findings-recommendations-fluoride-expert-panel-january-2007.html
Thank you again for taking the time to email us, your feedback is important.
I guess I choose to share this true life example of the challenges in our world.
If we want to go where we have never been, how can we if we keep doing as we have always done.
As a retired Family Physician, I get it. This is how the system works.
I am concerned about the neurotoxicity of Flouride, yet the Canadian Dental Association gets a big role in assessing the safety of Flouride as it related to teeth and bones.
I came up with a fun little analogy: To use flouride to build strong bones and teeth is kind of like using cocaine to enjoy high productivity. They each have their side effects, yet if we focus simply on the “positive”, is there a problem?
One simplistic view that I would prefer is that when we know there are polar issues, can we land on a solution that leaves both sides the freedom to agree to disagree? With flouride, if someone feels to take it, they can freely do so without it being in the city’s water supply.
As for masks, if someone feels a need to wear one for their protection, go ahead. The grave concern I have is that one mindset has the habit of requiring the other mindset to act in a way that serves to reduce their fear.
How much are we held captive by the fears of others? I know it is complicated.
I see our systems encouraging fear and creating elaborate smear campaigns for those who are not in fear. Clearly, the 2 groups believe differently.
Live and let live goes a long way to world peace.
My last 10 years of exploring consciousness, I have come to a few hypotheses/conclusions that I will simply list without too much explanation. As one of my top motivations to share is to find likeminded collaborators. You will know who you are.
1. Science, as it exists today, is like a religion. The profit-driven Science system bypasses so many caveats.
2. Consciousness is the foundation of health (and reality).
We are like film projectors able to create our reality yet many have been led to believe they are simply like a camera, taking still shots of some solid reality that exists independent of them. The Physics of Consciousness is the most fundamental Science I am aware of.
3. Physics trumps Biology, Chemistry and Genetics.
4. Our systems are not built on strong foundations. Hence, they appear to be crumbling. We can rebuild regenerative systems that enhance and support optimal Human Health. I know it.
I must admit that this all feels silly and petty on one hand.
Yet the foundation of freedom and the responsibility implied feels at risk.
I strongly believe that a new Quantum Truth System could handle the complexity of our world challenges. It requires a higher level of consciousness for those at the decision making level.
The feeling of being manipulated by strong-willed individuals acting upon unhealed aspects of themselves who have control of the common narrative is … quite unsettling.
No human left behind. Yet, not every human is best suited to develop solutions for the highest good of all.

My answer: Yes, of course.
IF they are willing to do so.
I was inspired to write this piece after watching this beautiful 15 minute video declaring Buddhism’s willingness.
Click to watch The Story So Far posted on HHK 17’s You Tube Channel. HHK 17 is short for His Holiness Karpama 17.
If all of our Religions could adopt this evolutionary view of the 17th Karmapa, it would benefit the world immensely.
I was very taken by his closing quote:
At 13:20 in this 15 minute video:
17th Karmapa is asked, What is the mission of the Karmapa in this lifetime?
“The Mission of the 17th Karmapa in this 21st century is mainly Dharma activity.
However, the Dharma must change in order to suit the time and the needs of society and its people.
Its essence will still be Buddha Dharma – but I may give it a new external shape.
I will update its expression so it can most effectively benefit people of the 21st century.
That is my mission.”
Mine too, for the record.
The future is now.
The 14th Dalai Lama is prominently featured in The Story So Far of HHK 17.
The Dalai Lama’s prophetic dream that matched the HHK 16 letter describing the future birth of HHK 17, prior to both the death of His Holiness Karpama 16 and the birth of HHK 17, is a compelling physical evidence of what I like to call The Physics of Consciousness. Most in the world refer to it as Spirituality.
I am passionate to reterm Spirituality into the language of Science.
Because as most of the world operates most comfortably in the Scientific language, I see great benefits to study Consciousness and allow the bridges between Consciousness, Spirituality and Science to be more easily conceptualized by the masses. To great benefit for all.
I have upgraded a Map of Consciousness written by Dr. David R. Hawkins in his book Power Versus Force.
Depicted above is the original scale by Dr. Hawkins.
My upgrade to this scale I call an Authenticity Scale, for lack of a better term.
I have a lot to add to the area termed enlightenment, between 700-1000.
I believe this area has been widely misunderstood by the world, myself included.
Enlightenment is kind of a scary term. Which led me to rename it Authenticity.
Authenticity is not scary, is it?
Through our programmed beliefs about who Jesus Christ (and others) were, enlightened beings, it feels very unrealistic to achieve enlightenment.
To achieve Authenticity is what I profess.
Do we know what an authentic human being looks like?
Not widely so, I would boldly declare.
I would like to direct Scientific Study towards these questions:
What does an authentic human being look like?
How does an authentic human being behave?
The Field of Study would be called The Physics of Consciousness.
I see the concept of an Authenticity Scale as a valuable tool to use in today’s environment.
Fitting best into Physics, Quantum Physics.
Evolving with our understanding of Consciousness.
I do not profess that this tool is the fundamental truth, yet perhaps it is, but an important concept to allow us to dig out of the trench of our Unsustainable System of Systems that do not take into account the needs of an Authentic Human Being. I do not feel we have connected to what these needs are as yet.
Our systems reflect this lack of knowledge.
For the purpose of optimizing ourselves and the world we live in, I recommend we use this Authenticity Scale as a bridge to understanding ourselves and the energetic component of our multidimensional anatomy that is currently bypassed within the realm of Medical Science as it is most commonly applied in the modern Western World.
I am not choosing to include my working model of the Authenticity Scale in this piece.
A multidisciplinary, collaborative approach to this work would be my dream in this lifetime.
I dream of the day when the Scientific Instruments become widely available to aid us in studying this and applying it to our world systems.
I use a couple of terms for myself in this grand hypothesis: Futurist and Physics of Consciousness Professor.
Easily termed crazy by the Scientists living in the status quo of our modern day.
Not a problem.
I always translate crazy to mean: Truth not yet optimally perceived.
I encourage more of our Scientists to open their mind and become willing to apply the Scientific principles to my theories.
This would involve:
1. Questioning assumptions made by Medical Science related to Consciousness.
2. Getting curious as to what is the optimal truth about Consciousness.
3. Starting to investigate a variety of hypotheses with the aim of …
… Enabling and Empowering Optimal Human Health.
The prior bolded sentence is my Personal Mission Statement for my upcoming Professional Work.
Mahayana Buddhism was felt by Dr. David R. Hawkins and his team to be the most evolved living Religion in the world at the time of writing his book, Power Vs. Force. His group muscle-tested it at 970. That piece truly captured my attention.
I agree wholeheartedly with this perspective.
I am an Ex-Catholic who has always been interested in Comparative Religion.
Theology fascinates me.
I took a Catechism course in St. Albert, Alberta back in 1992 or 1993, in preparation for my marriage, September 1993, in the Catholic Church to a man whose parents were born, raised and educated in Mauritius, Africa. His grandparents born in China, immigrated to Mauritius in early adulthood to escape the Japanese invasion that was expected in the late 1930’s. My family to be were simultaneously attending a private Catechism course taught by a Nun of Chinese origin. A fascinating contrast. I will spare the details.
I recall it was Father Brian who taught my course, which ended up being my dream course that would have been better titled, Comparative Theology of some of the World’s main Religions.
Led me to a dream of seeing a similar course delivered to all children of the World, starting with the Edmonton Public School System where my 3 children have and are currently being educated.
I dove into a role as an Education Advocate about 15 years ago, as my first child entered Kindergarten.
A tumultuous political time in Alberta’s Education History.
My experience as an Education Advocate could be termed traumatic, but on the plus side, it was highly educational. As to the unwillingness of the System to consider optimal change.
Most of our systems are entrenched. Continuing on as they have for the suboptimal reason:
We have always done it this way.
I am presently relating with many First Nations Elders from both the United States and Canada.
I see the same dream repeating itself if it could be applied to the First Nations deep wound that exists within Canadian Culture. A skeleton in the closet that Canada’s citizens are extremely reluctant to look at.
The First Nations people are also challenged to commit to optimize the relationship.
I could write volumes more on this topic but I will not try to connect all the dots in this brief article.
To ask for Religions of all denominations, I include First Nation Traditions within this broad term, to consider how they can evolve their beliefs to Optimize the people … would:
Raise the Stage
Change the Conversation (implies starting the Conversation)
Leading to World Peace.
I conclude with my favorite definition du jour of Consciousness:
And Nothing is Judged:
Allows you to live fully as you believe in and function from a reality of possibility.
A few more quotes to live by:
To empower yourself is the greatest gift anyone can give to the world.
Assertively retrain your mind.
Go from thinking to doing.
Mindset over Matter.”
“Confidence is humility.
Insecurity is arrogance.”
And … My all-time Favorite:
Live and Let Live.
(Goes a long way towards World Peace)
I leave you with on of my favorite songs I sung (in 6 part harmony with the Church Choir back in the day):
Dona Nobis Pacem performed by Yo Yo Ma.
The title is Latin for Grant Us Peace.
Another version by Cantus: Dona Nobis Pacem.
Niagara Children’s Choir sing the version my choir sung decades ago. Dona Nobis Pacem.
I recently scoured the internet looking for an optimal choral version of the Canon, as sung by the Children’s Choir. It does not exist … Yet.
I predict that my passionate desire for one, will plant a seed somewhere on the earth for one to be produced. When? Anyone’s guess.
