universal intention

November 28, 2012
 
I welcome your thoughts and perspective, your energies and alignment.
 
I intend:
The Universe is cooperating collaborating conspiring to bring forth my highest and best thriving self, happy and whole Well Being.  My body, mind, and spirit are energized and optimized, and there is integrity in my thoughts and actions such that what I DO is a reflection of my highest BEING, and is manifesting my greatest desires.
 
Each Being on Earth is motivated and empowered in walking their journey, ongoingly discovering the next version of who we are supposed to be, willingly letting go of the old which is no longer here, and enthusiastically stepping into the opportunity of the new, which is the Universe’s offering to us.
 
Every Being discovers and uses language to describe their own version of Well Being, and knows and feels that they are supported in putting those thoughts into practice.
 
We all know the power and relief of being in communication, connected and thriving in community, and turn often in good times and bad toward the holistic support of fellowship and group.
 
We each know how to access our Still Small Voice, that gut instinct which knows the Next Right Thing; we check in with ourselves regularly, and have the courage and the resources to effect action in alignment with what we “know”.
 
We share what we discover, as celebration of self, and with intention of being contribution.
 
==========
peaceful eve,  Being Well,
Tom

What is We!! Being.

July 26, 2012

Does “What is Well ”  have a question mark in it?

What if instantaneous healing is accessible to all of us, right here, right now? 
What if the access to HI (Healing Instantaneously) is hidden in the question mark?

What was the last thing you knew you were right about ?  Was it fun to prove it to those folks around you who didn’t quite get it yet ?  In my experience, most of the times I know I’m right are not much fun for the people around me!  Where we know, we stop the flow.

I am blessed to be surrounded by fascinating committed highly-skilled compassionate forward-thinking people, some of whom consider themselves healers in myriad realm, and some who don’t yet know that they are.  I offer a few thoughts for consideration, knowing that we are delving into a very rich conversation thanks to who you all are and what you’re about to contribute to my life.  Thank you for exploring with me, and for reading these words as if they’re yours.

Often, there is great relief in hearing something from another’s mouth that resonates with what we know.  There is an  “oh, there I AM!”ness that both validates and inspires.  Many of us know the feeling of “being in the right place” when all the messages around us seem to align with what we already know about ourselves. When that feeling arises, it is usually because of a discovery, a revelation,  This sense of “aha!” discovery is only available where we don’t yet know for certain what is about to happen.

I offer this idea:
The “I know” is self.  The “I don’t know”  is an invitation to community, an invitation to the sacred connection we all yearn to remember so to know that profound relief of belonging.
“I don’t know” is a generous willingness, a promise and an offer to all those around you that you’re in an exploration, in a space of contribution to be both given and received.

Where we are connected, we are well, we are ease and flow.  At the point of separation — the dis-connect — the dis-ease is born, the flow is interrupted, and the opportunity arises …to remember how we were connected when well was all we knew.

Trust is the great healer. And curiosity is the fuel for every spiritual quest ever taken.
A curious heart and mind — the question of the child — asks and lets go, i.e. there is a real question mark at the end of the sentence!  And here — in that sacred silent pause after the question is posed, in the waiting for the response –is the healing power of trust.  

Prayer can be defined as  “an earnest request or wish”; a lesser-used definition is “a slight chance” (as in, haven’t got a prayer).  Use these definitions for this thought. 
In our darkest times, our earnest request, our prayer, is to something or some force that can do for us what we cannot do by and for ourselves.
What if Willingness is the Key, the access to the unknown, that possibly unseen thing that will take us by surprise as the answer to all our prayers? 
We all pray. (shhhh…. there it is, the silence, the gap in between the thoughts!) 
Prayer –the asking– is itself the key that opens the door of community, a place where we are no longer by ourselves.

When there is something “wrong” — some dis-ease, adversity, struggle, problem — we tend to not be in simple clear communication with the person we think responsible (the one who “did it to us, darn it all!)  Humans– we love our gossip!  We will talk and talk to find others who agree with us so that we can gather evidence so to know that we’re right, all the while avoiding the very thing that, given compassionate and curious attention, would be healed.  What if the willingness to approach these situations was itself the healing force of the situation ?

Jackson Brown would call it looking into the eyes of the sun.  I’ll sing for you later.

Switch gears for a moment to a dream, a nirvana (how many times a day does somebody suggest *that* to you ?!)  Imagine the most thriving state of Human Being.  We are all sufficiently cared-for, well-fed, nourished of body, mind, and spirit. There is enough.  Given a foundation where basic needs are met, and even luxury choices are available and plentiful, a happy healthy whole “individual” finds him or herself in communication with others.  What do we do there in the place where you have enough?   What do we proclaim with our days and our doings?

I assert that what we do is connect. When all fears are released, and when we are perfectly comfortable, competent, and calm, we…  become We.
We with two exclamation points is We!! Being. 
We become well in Proclamation.

Each of the “enough” people choose often to be with each other,
I believe that we are missioned on this planet to bring all of the Enough People together, in creation of a community of healers who know that Well Being is an inside job.  Healers and leaders and inspirational gurus across time and planet have carried the message in so many different ways:  Be the Light.  When my gas tank is full, then I can best be of service to my loved ones and even strangers.  I believe that being around the Enough People is a significant part of remembering the ways to fill my tank.  Being around you, I get to look in the mirror at every turn.  I get to look at you for real, at the essence of you, because I trust me, because I’m willing to live in question mark.

So which way to we turn to connect?  Does it matter?

Next week we will explore the idea that a thriving Well Being trusts that Still Small Voice inside (assuming we hear it and pay attention in the first place!).  and we will begin to identify the objective and tangible ways that we pursue therapeutics incorporating these ideologies.
Please keep your eyes open.

What if the following statement is true?
What is right.

Then it may follow that Peace, Being Well =  HI !

Univera Transformation

Dearest friend in Well Being,

I have discovered in the past six months a wonderful scientific company producing a groundbreaking product optimizing cellular renewal technology. I am so impressed with both the product and the company, that I joined this team of amazing people. Some of them are healers and some of them are scientists and some are nutritionists and all of them have a commitmet to the excellence and Well Being of humanity. Reversing the Aging Process, optimizing Cell Renewal and reinvigorating every bodily system, Ageless XTra is truly one of the remarkable scientific contributions of our time. I would very much like to introduce you to this company and the miracle that is Well Being for everybody on the planet.

check out this stuff~~ 1. This is a video on the science of cell renewal and also a virtual tour of Econet Research lab in Washington: http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5517305842652119402&hl=en

….. and I will tell you more and more as we get deeper into discussion. The humanitarian stand that Univera takes is impressive and life-altering; the entire company practices loving principles of personal empowerment, brings people to a place where they can powerfully and autonomously choose a path for improving the quality of their lives, and then provides access. Univera delivers.

And I know that you are committed to this same high standard of individual healing and empowerment, and this is why I choose to share these products and this stunning company with you. Univera is on the ground floor in being reliable advocacy for natural healing products, and already demonstrating that Relationship Marketing is already one of the most successful business model of the next millenium.

And the entire team of scientists and healers is working and discovering right in the sweet spot of things. Personally, I’ve been on the Ageless Xtra product for three months and my sense of comfort and clarity and youthfulness has new-stratosphered. I would love to tell you more about it at your convenience. peace abundant in you, Tom

Extraordinary Invitation

February 26, 2009
Hello to the Wellest of Beings!
 
I invite you to an extraordinary event: an Introduction to the Landmark Forum.
 
I am sending this to everybody in my network who has interest in well being and in human empowerment.
I know you to be purposed professionals, committed to the great work we are all doing in generating holistic Well Being and transforming suffering in all modalities.
I would love for you to come experience this event, to see what might be possible for you and the people in your life around you.
A well being is one who is agent in his life.
I am involved in powerful work with Landmark Education and have found a new dimension to Being Powerful and effective in my own life, and I want to share this with you.  I welcome you to come and to bring whomever you’d like.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
This is one of the most important letters I will write.
I warmly and happily invite you to a gathering for an
Introduction to the Landmark Forum
to be led by Landmark Forum Introduction Leader Phil Thomas!
 
It will happen
    March 3, 2009, a Tuesday evening  from 7:00 -10:00p.m.
In Chevy Chase —  Diana Morgan’s home
    4308 Rosemary Street (cross street is Maple Avenue)
    Chevy Chase, Maryland 20815
 
The event is Free and promises to be one of the memorable evenings of your lifetime.
 
You will have a chance to register into the Landmark Forum, so please bring your day-timers and form of payment (check or credit card) in the event that the presentation speaks to you and you’d like to register.
For those of you who would like to know a little more about Landmark before you step in the door here
You can see a little of the work at www.landmarkeducation.com
and there is a short video intro there as well.
Experiencing the Landmark Forum and subsequent transformational work has changed my life in so many powerful and creative ways. People who undertake Landmark’s work discover poignant insights into their growth and development; it makes available the realms of our existence where anything is possible for ourselves and our lives.
 
And we’re sharing it with the Wellness and Well-Being communities, including practitioners of all discipline:  allopathy, naturopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture, massage therapy, energy workers in reiki, pranic healing, chakra energizing, yoga and other mindfulness practices, and spirit healers, to mention just a few.  Traditional and Alternative therapeutic communities are coming together in groundbreaking new ways to collaboratively empower people in claiming agency in their personal well-being, and the Landmark Forum offers an avenue toward languaging this ongoingly-developing common ground.
 
I am so pleased to share this program with you.  Will you join us please?  Anybody you’d like to bring with you is also welcome, and I look forward to meeting anybody with whom you’d like to experience this work.  I am certain that you will make an extraordinary contribution to this community of thinkers and explorers.
 
I am committed that you personally get tremendous value from the event — During this time of such profound change for you and those around you, I believe there is a pristine clarity available for you simply by being present at this event. 
 
Please plan on coming a little early as well; so many of the practitioners gathering would love a dialogue with you.  And please accept in advance my deep gratitude for what you are about to contribute.
 
My cellphone is below; please call with any questions at all and to let me know how many you’ll be bringing with you. 
We also welcome kids over the age of fifteen.
 
I look forward to a wonderful evening of breakthrough transformation.  Thank you in advance for your great spirit!
Namaste,  Tom

I wasn’t There

January 20, 2009

I wasn’t There

There are certain things in my life that I don’t seem to remember the way other people explain them. I believe that there was a person called Tom there– in these places and scenario they keep describing– who may have resembled an earlier version of me; he may actually have been an earlier version of me. I believe he was there. I am a different man now, and my ME is a distinct and evolved ME from the one who traveled those doings and dontings. And the herenow Me understands that there is no “there” anyway. Sometimes I get close to believing the There (big T)… and then I see that it really is just ” T here ” and I recenter and laugh at the myself — the Big I, Big Tom T–that isn’t.

Sometimes I am pleased and reminiscently warmed at the remembering of having been there, and sometimes I feel as if there is something like a little sister tugging on my sleeve, tugging on the sleeve of my Here and Now, saying “hey c’mere and play with me… you can come back later and Now will still Be Here”. And she is right, I suppose.

The Hereness has such a presence and a connection, and there is within me a commitment to the deepest feelings of the Me that is You and the Me that is God and the Me that is Unity; that commitment feels like an enlightening, a levity of Spirit where the gravities of the planet and the concerns of my silly head seem to float around like white feathers glinting sundrops. And this– when all is one and all is here and my brain is grinning and there are OM-ings enveloping the everything of every ticktock that ever clocktimed — this is enough.

After all, all is here. Big E Everything is here, all.

And still, something in me reluctantly speaks to the Everything with the odd notion of “i am going to be gone for a while, and I’ll be back for supper.” and the roulette wheel of choice stops on “forget” once again, and I open my eyes and say hello to my gods and glance at the clock and get up and take a piss.

And parts of those yesterdays come back to me. They are all the times that I told my patient god “hold on a second….” and chose to eat butterfingers or maybe flip on the latest Rascal Flatts song and feel my chest rumble as I sing or simply hop the bus and get to work an honest day… and they come back because they want to make the little i happy and what feels to the i like something whole.

Truth is that there is no whole for the little i, and there is no hole in the big I. And the winds of change can swirl and blow, and nothing changes what I Know. And the Big E Eye watches and giggles, and whispers that “nothin’ ain’t no biggee” and Big I know that’s gotta be right.

And the Eye of the Hurricance passes perfectly,

because the Eye of the Hurricane passes perfectly.

And if you’d like to, please tell me what you know about it all;

i don’t remember, because I wasn’t There.

Now I AM.
