National T.V. Début - Dr. Andy Drives a Bus

National T.V. Début - Dr. Andy Drives a Bus


Today I'm going to venture into the personal domain with a somewhat humerous story. It looks like I'm going to have my national T.V. début here in a few weeks, not as an expert in tourism, or scholar or a Ph.D., but as a bus driver. Hehehe.

Due to the slowness of some projects for Solomon Source I've had to take a job with my old "stand-by" - working for a bus company. Now this time, instead of driving the bus (which I've done since 1984) I've been mostly working in the office. However, I told the company if they needed me to drive, I would. Last week the makers of "Friday Night Lights" came by to look at our buses, which I showed them. A couple of days later they called about getting the buses. I actually clean up pretty good so the company asked me if I wanted to drive for them. I said "sure".

The scenes are about as the team makes its way to State. And I'm the bus driver. Its been interesting and fun. And it lends to humility. Humility is always a good place to return to. For me it lends to a sense of gratitude, which is also a good place to be.

Actually, I have found myself repeatly coming back to buses over about 25 years. I have "sworn" off driving numerous times, but something about the experience and my life situation has pulled me back for one reason or another. I drove all through my Ph.D. studies to supplement my income, and even drove a few times while I was teaching at Texas A&M.

In an interesting way much of my life experience and perspectives have been influenced by my experiences working with this industry. I think it's the same that people say about their experiences waiting tables. Those jobs that customers often take for granted allows the "Server" a plethora of experience that end up shaping their lives.

Driving for people has had a significant affect on my view of the world. I have always been inclined to "do stuff" and driving the bus has allowed me the opportunity to see many places and meet thousands of people and have a vast array of experiences, especially educational and "experiential".

In fact just the other day I picked up an elementary school group at Camp Champions near Marble Falls, Texas and was amazed with the impact these teachers are having on their students lives. I am doing a little more research and will soon do a longer blog on their awesome work.

In my opinion, this is where "the rubber meets the road" - teachers touching kids lives, creating experiences that allow the kids a chance to see the world in a new way. It was Steve Simpson who really started this for me at Iowa State in the 80's. He lit a fire in my heart and I'm still on the path today.

Well anyway, look for more "down to earth" blogs in the near future. My more recent experiences (having to take a job I don't really want to, just to get by) of the mundane and survival brings me to another level of experience. It makes me ask the question "what are we doing to touch people's lives". How is the "theory" brought to a place where we actually are making a difference. Look for random thoughts along these lines in the next few weeks - or not.

But, I'll be sure to post when my national acting début happens. Likely within the next few weeks. Maybe Hollywood is waiting for me??? . . . or maybe not!!



All the best,
Andy

Evolving "Addiction" Recovery Models

Offering a smorgasbord of Breath Consciousness skills and tools through the Reverence for Life University, and ancillary websites

Approaching treatment centers, AA, hospitals, outreach/recovery houses, etc. with the Reverence for Life University tool box. I will be adding to this outline as a guide to assist people who are working on addressing any type of "addiction". My experience is based upon 36 years clean and sober.

Primarily offering The Practice, as in The Global Citizenship Passport

Replacing the accusatory theology, psychology, philosophy (judgement of anyone, especially ourselves)

Replace with: "affirmational" theology, psychology, philosophy as espoused by Desmond D. Green, and first discovered by Albert Schweitzer.

Skills-sets
    - Conscious Deep Breathing (downloadable Breathing Benefits pdf)
    - Languaging, Self Talk (Conscious Body Language  (Self Talk)
    - Breath Tapping
    - Becoming / Being Present (See Peace Making)
    - Science of Self Actualization

Addressing boredom
    - Simplifying
    - Recreation
    - Fullfilling, satisfying work (see Tom Dooley)
    - Music, art, dance, play, time in nature
    - Bob Windt's model for learning (see Yep It's Rocket Science)
    - Being of Service
    - Robert Wilson "all work and no play makes "insert name" a very dull boy"

Redirecting Attention
    - technology, re-addressing
    - time in nature
    - Breathing Practices
    - Being Present
    - exercise

Other Key Ideas
- Taking care with money
- Friendship
- Asking for help, and accepting (allowing others to be of Service is a great gift to them)
- Having fun
- Being honest
- Changing playgrounds and playmates
- First Things First (The Practice)
- Easy Does It
- Our experiences are our greatest gift that we can Share with others

This is a Spiritual process, just like when we exercise our body and mind, we have to address, grow, our Soul/Spirit

Full-filling work (job, vocation, career, avocation)
A key, is to find work that feels fulfilling, or satisfies, and doesn't suck the life out of us. Another way to look at this is to "transcend" our work, with the intention, knowing, that what our heart's desire will be brought to us in good timing. A couple touchstones: don't settle for less, there can be a danger where one might "rest on their laurels" (see Vision Excelerator, bringing dreams to life)

Monitoring Feelings 
We have an internal guidance system, it is our feelings, especially emanating from our "guts", solar plexus, or breadbasket.
- The Moods Channel
- Dial-A-Mantra 

Additional Activities
Reading

Journaling

The New Jericho

As the walls of the New Jericho come tumbling down, or the veil is lifted, or the curtain is pulled back on the Wizard, many will be shocked and astounded to learn of the atrocities that have been perpetrated IN YOUR NAME!

Fear not. While these discoveries pass before your eyes, if you act with steadfastness and Charity, the knowing of Reverence for Life can become the foundation of your journeys forward. Ultimately, these events have no lasting bearing because the Truth is that this the ONE's experience(s), not ours. As Shakespeare wrote "All the world's a stage, all the men and women merely players."

The Power of Life is such a simple Truth. We all exist in ONE BREATH. The horrors and the stories we repeat become ours. If we believe them, they become ours. If we argue for them, the become our possessions.

The beautiful, loving design ordained by God, All That Is, The One Infinite Creator has built in protections. We cannot, in no shape or form, "screw it up."

We get to experience it! As if it is ours. Which it is. Because we are one with the ONE.

The formula for life is simple - Live with the greatest loving intent that you can day to day, progressively. Bring this energy into all of your dealings, to the best of your ability.

The dualistic mind is a tricky one. It has a real hard time accepting the fact that there in only ONE thing here.

This is not a problem. One bodies and our Breath knows. Our life experiences occur by what we do with our next breath. And our mind can be trained to fall into it's proper role through The Practice and Breath Tapping.

The image-based consciousness cannot be reasoned with That does not matter. What matters is to do things that make you feel at peace. Become Breath Conscious. Become Breath Appreciative. Connect with the Mother Earth - spending time in nature connecting your heart - we call it "Hearthing".

Replacing all of the "busy-ness" of the image-based reality, which is crumbling like the Berlin Wall, find the Joys. Love, Life, that is Being delivered to YOU, Right Directly In Your Face - 25,000 times a day.

This is your. This is you. This is all of Ours.

We are all in this together. Because there is no way to get out.

Live it. Enjoy it. Revere it.

ONE CONSCIOUS, DEEP, APPRECIATIVE BREATH AT A TIME.

THE BOTTLE AND I

I looked in the mirror today
I tried but couldn't look away
I felt afraid that I might see
Something wrong with me
It was hard to look inside
I had to pierce the false pride
As I broke through the tangle
I could look from another angle
Like a lightbulb had just been lit
This humbled me a little bit
I found myself in a room
In one corner lurked my doom
I approached the corner against my will
A bottle perched on a window sill
The window that had no light
I grabbed that bottle in my plight
It burned me in and out
Something was wrong no doubt
I dropped the bottle on the floor
And started walking toward the door
It rolled past me in front of my feet
I felt no mightier match I'd meet
It grew so large I couldn't see
There was nowhere left to flee
I went to the window for a leap
To escape the hazards I might reap
I opened the window and in flowed a stream
A trickle of light I had never seen
It touched my heart and felt so warm
And engulfed me in such a storm
I raised my arms and fell to my knees
To praise this thing that I might please
A feeling grew I had not felt
A winning hand that I was dealt
I raised my head and came to my feet
To approach this thing I had to meet
I went to the bottle to look inside
It seemed there was nothing left to hide
I turned away afraid to look
But the light still shone that I'd mistook
I got a strength and it grew
It felt so good this I knew
So I looked inside and it was bad
But because of the light I was not sad
For the light is so bright
I said to myself "you're alright."

I wrote this poem soon after my sobriety date of July 13, 1981. I am still free of drugs and alcohol.

Never IN Isolation

As many lament the isolation of our advanced computer technology, I see a beautiful phenomenon occurring as we become mesmerized by our little devices, we become curious, enamored and thrilled at the prospect of our "biological - computered-ness".

As we hold these little devices that are opening up vast channels for communication, entertainment, and Sharing we realize OMG (Oh My God!), I/EYE am the ONE holding this device!

Without ME, none of this would exist. (see Thirty years to tell this story)

Then, whether we choose to keep using the device, or set it down and go outside and enjoy the wonders of nature - we can rest assured in knowing this is all about how we interpret our experiences.

We (Reverence for Life Univ.) have called this "The Age Of Experientialism"!

It is a wonderful time of embracing, relishing, enjoying, celebrating.

In each moment all of life, the Cosmos, your body, the Earth, there is renewing.

All is supported. And Loved.

There is no getting out of this. It IS happening.

The Perspective that allows this re-alignment we call "Breath Consciousness".

All is contained and experienced in One Breath. And it is yours. Choose the happy path.

Get your "Practices" and exercises for integrating this altered awareness at the Reverence for Life University (and other affiliated websites as well).

Tuning Your Instrument

We are living music
Music playing light, or
Light playing music
Light/Love, Love/Light   (Love = Gravity, Light = Energy) - sounds a lot like E=MC2

Converging people, technologies, experiences
(Don Pierce's Micoy, holographic imaging, Star Trek holodeck, solid combined sound with hologram?)
Hal Putoff, ran remote viewing program for US, is a friend to Greg D.
   More will be revealed about several exciting developments of "new" technologies, connected to our own
    built-in capabilities - for a sample visit Ames Global Summit

My brother Mark's last message, written in a small notebook "I hear music."
My friend Steve, the musician in England has been emphatic about sound being as important as the breath.

As a teenager, I would get this feeling/knowing, "there is something very important in the music."
"Hu" "Om" - toning, humming.

What we are doing is clearing the dust from our instruments, vibrational disharmonies from our bodies as
     living instruments
Cory and Michael's machine, harmonizing the collective vibrational soup (Ames Global Summit)
The conference call between Desmond, Cory and Michael seems to have set up a resonance that this
     message is flowing to me through
My experience in Colombia in 2009, with Archangel Metatron, the Whirling Dervish Dance (Sufi)
Spiraling, pulsating, vibrating movements, flows, drumming (I met Sarah at a drumming circle at Sunset Beach, Rock Island, IL  June 11, 2011)
Our words are notes into the collective symphony
Remembering (Socrates) it seems our cellular memory, the musical tones are awakening reconnecting us

These days when Sarah is with Lincoln, or when I give her a massage, she "sighs", in a very calming beautiful tone, in spite of the energetic challenges that we are facing day to day as this "human reality" that we have been living in appears to be crumbling.

The Human 2.0 Software, appears to be connected to this "harmonizing"
   Clearing the "thoughtmosphere" to allow ourselves to express our music without all of the mental noise
"Noise" - external physical noise is related to our use of "explosive" energy, rather than natural "vortexual" energy, all of the other loud sounds, electricity, Haarp, WiFi, Cell phones, toxins, etc., etc.
"Clearing the Air"

The Practices of the Reverence for Life University help us learn to play our living music. Because Life is an expression of music, and the song will always play. Our efforts need only focus on better expressing our own symphony, our physical bodies are literally living, light, musical instruments of the One Infinite Creator. With The Practic we can improve our ability to play our own living, musical, light score that expresses itself as earth, air, fire, water and ether and is experienced as images, sounds, tastes, textures and smells.

Explanation/description of my experience with this message:

I woke up fully at 2:30 with this theme of "Music and Light". I was very happy, and assured. It felt like I had been given a key. I was very excited and came to Sarah (while she was deep in sleep, I didn't fully wake her) to share with her the simple message of the first two lines of this Sharing.

Now as I type it up, it may not make sense to everyone. However, in my experience there are convergences of people, ideas, books, synchronicities, Spirits, and a vast collapsing of energies, timelines and dimensions that are happening right now.

We all know when we hear a beautiful tune. We can know if we are allowing our Music and Light to play a beautiful song - it will feel good! That is our barometer. Much of our external conditioning, and experiences have not effectively led us to this knowing. However, the bio-feedback we receive is dependable (primarily centered in our tummy/solar plexus/bread basket). It communicates clearly. All we must do is heed it.

So much of what we Share at the Reverence for Life University is to bring us back center with our body's perfection, and ability to show us when we are going off course, from our most satisfying and secure experience. Quieting the mind, or, subduing the intellect and imagination can require diligence. However, the rewards more than outweigh the efforts.

There are a number of Practices at the Reverence for Life University that can assist. Conscious Body Language, Conscious Deep Breathing (pdf), Breath TappingScience of Self Actualization.

The most recent addition is The Human 2.0 Software that was inspired while I was reading Steve Jobs biography.

This particular essay was "downloaded" while I was reading a book that my brother Mark left behind, Bringers of the Dawn: teachings from the Pleiadians by Barbara Marciniak

Human 2.0 Project - inprinting Reverence for Life

Human 2.0 "Hu"man, undifferentiated galactic beings
  (HU - a song to God)

Initiating the software to free one self from the "image-based" matrix (the mesmerizing of time and numbers) - installing the Reverence for Life protocal

1. The Practice
2. Conscious, Deep, Appreciative Breathing
3. Breath Tapping
4. Digesting the NOW - (the Cosmos is one big Present)
5. Languaging (matras, "spelling" = use of words), Sharings (also see Trust Your Breath)
6. Digesting, processing, owning (all of your experiences, and everything)
7. Connecting to Nature (Hearthing)
8. Acknowledging the magic, signs, synchronicities, connections, coincidences
9. Music magic - ditties, jingles, nursery rhymes, humming
10. Sharing (www.eyeamsharing.com)
11. Communications - (talking to friends, give them a call, answer your phone, leave a message, or better
        yet, meet them for coffee or dinner, but don't let your phone interrupt)
12. Feelings (www.themoodschannel.com)
13. Work - Reverence for Life, work for Your Self, you work for the world.

"Content is King" - (Kingdom Network)
Innovation in "things" has been the order of the day for some time in the human experience. As I am reading Steve Jobs biography I realize our access and ability to discern information has not evolved. Distractions. The Matrix. Viruses (especially self doubt). Implants have all had a pretty good run. With Human 2.0 we ARE accomplishing a whole-sale "anti-virus" run.

At Reverence for Life University we have created a suite, or portal, to content instills a set of tools, skill-sets, that will allow a person access to "parced" information. Although the currency, or flow, is controlled at some level, there is always freedom - each person can customize, use or not use, or, you can go participate in the "Googled", "YouTubed" versions of the world where there in the appearance of free information, yet everything is being filtered through an advertising and marketing filter - or the user is being lambasted again with "buy and sell this" messages.

Since we ARE biological computers, and no technology has any utility without us, Human 2.0 Project doesn't attempt to "fix" the machine, but installs (IN-PRINTS) a new operating system. This system established the way that people can better create the life experiences that they will enjoy and feel empowered by.
