If you Build It They Will Come

There is a field…

It’s not green or golden or made of a meadow, hilside or riverbank. It is a field of energy– sparkling, effervescent, life-giving (not death-dealing,) magnanimous, warm, embracing, supportive, inclusive, radiant…. energy. It’s not visible but you can feel it and you know when you’re there.

It’s a place where children play and grow and become the finest expression of what it means to be human, a human being. It is a breathtakingly beautiful place where all your warts are acknowledged and overlooked. Where you can be yourself, warts and all and if you mess up, people remind you who you are (a being of light and grace) and ask you to return to that excellent Self. And they put their arms around you and hold you up when you falter.

Hold Me
Like The River Jordan
And I Will Then Say To Thee
You Are My Friend

Carry Me
Like You Are My Brother
Love Me Like A Mother
Will You Be There?

Tell Me Will You Hold Me
When Wrong, Will You Scold Me
When Lost Will You Find Me?

But They Told Me
A Man Should Be Faithful
And Walk When Not Able
And Fight Till The End

… But I’m Only Human


If you have not read the last Inner Michael entry and the comments, it is recommended that you do that now. Then come back and read on…

Yes, it is a “Field of Dreams” and if you build it… they will come.

Oneness Declaration

I declare………
• that the message We Are All One; inter-related, inter-connected and inter-dependant,
with God/Life/One-another, is the one spiritual message that the world has been
waiting for to bring about loving and sustainable answers to humanity’s problems.
• that the world does not have to be the way it is, and that individual people can change
it using the power of spiritual citizenship.
• that humanity is good and has unlimited potential, and that social transformation
starts with personal transformation. I therefore recognize the importance of connecting
with my divine essence and inner wisdom throughout my life’s journey; allowing the
finest and the highest levels of human potential to flourish for the benefit of all.
• my aspirations to support spiritual principles, global ethics, and universal values such as
unity, compassion, humility, honesty, respect, love, and forgiveness that underlie this
• that human beings need each other to survive on this planet. I recognize that we are all in
this together and that community flourishes as we learn about each other and revel in the
wonder and beauty of our diversities. I declare that I am playing my part to help to bring
about a culture in which we, the peoples of the world, can address our common global
concerns in an holistic, positive, and transforming way, and ‘live together in peace with
one another’ – thus realizing this declaration.
• that oneness includes all of life and that wholeness is only achieved through the recognition
of the one and ‘the other’; also the exiled and unloved parts of the Self, others, and the
• that I am part of the emerging consciousness that promotes a spirit of openness, enquiry,
connection, and relationship with myself and the entire universe, and who continues to
recognise the wonder, beauty, and magic of it all.
• I declare that the time for change is now, and I declare the importance of the declaration of
a day set aside for all of humanity to come together as one human family; to discuss,
celebrate, and experience Oneness.

 All those years, all those lyrics… what did you think Michael was talking about?

Somebody shakes when the wind blows
Somebody’s missing a friend, hold on
Somebody’s lacking a hero
And they have not a clue
When it’s all gonna end

Stories buried and untold
Someone is hiding the truth, hold on
When will this mystery unfold
And will the sun ever shine
In the blind man’s eyes when he cries?

You change the world (I can’t do it by myself)
You can touch the sky (Gonna take somebody’s help)
You’re the chosen one (I’m gonna need some kind of sign)
If we all cry at the same time tonight

Are We There Yet?
Is your heart weeping yet? Are you crying now? Are you sad enough, sick enough to change it yet?
No? Ok, you go ahead and stay in the field you’re in. The rest of us will move on with our revolution.
We’ll leave you with something to think about and if (when) you change your mind, we’ll leave the LIGHT on for you.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has~Margaret Mead

Article reprinted from Humanity’s Team:

Deeply ingrained in every problem in society lies the timeless aspect of deception.  In South Africa alone we need look no further than the proposed State Secrecy Bill, Service Delivery, the Toll Gate saga, Fracking in the Karoo,  and the Michael Tellinger Constitutional Court Action against Standard Bank, the South African Reserve Bank, and the Minister of Finance to name a tiny few to realise the extent of the questions around this phenomenon.

The undeniable reality of our inextricable Oneness forces us to ponder the effects that deception may possibly have on society.


Findings reported in the Pearson International Edition (Twelfth Edition) of Social Psychology (2009) indicate that when people find themselves on the receiving end of lies, not only do they react with mistrust of, and disliking toward the perpetrator, perhaps of even greater interest, after to having been exposed to someone who has lied, most people are more willing to engage in such behaviour themselves.  In a specific study participants were exposed to lying/liars to test if some lies are worse than others and if frequency had an effect.  Apart from some amazing findings, the one that is most disturbing is that participants of the study who were exposed to frequent lying showed stronger tendencies to lie themselves than those who had observed only one lie or no lies at all.  Together, the findings indicate that deception undermines the quality of social relationship because it spreads from one person to another.  It seems possible that such effects contribute to the kind of scandals that rock large corporations… Lying by top people in these companies encourages unethical behaviour by many others, sometimes with disastrous results.

This phenomena ties is with the Cialdini Effect as it is described in the Report:  The Spreading of Disorder by Dr Kees Keizer et al of the Faculty of Behavioral and Social Sciences, University of Groningen in the Netherlands who wanted to understand for example the effects of living in a neighborhood that is covered with graffiti, litter, and unreturned shopping carts.  In a nutshell, the “Cialdini Effect” means ‘disorder begets disorder’ in communities and society at large:  when one social or legal norm is obviously violated, we are tempted to loosen our grip on others. Or, as Dr Keizer writes in the more precise language of psychology: “one disorder (graffiti or littering) actually fostered a new disorder (stealing) by weakening the goal of acting appropriately… The mere presence of graffiti more than doubled the number of people littering and stealing.”

Dr Keizer adds: “… Exactly why our capacity to act honorably melts away in nasty settings is a mystery  and he speculates that, when the instinct to act appropriately is pushed to one side, competing instincts – such as to do what feels good or to give in to greed – take over. If we can see that bad behavior has gone unpunished, perhaps we feel that our own lapses will go uncensured. Whatever the reason, the implications for policy are clear. Slapdashery in the environment breeds slapdashery in behavior, and small transgressions can lead to bigger ones. A community left in squalor will, we can speculate, eventually see its social norms dramatically lowered …”

One way of describing this ‘mystery’ is through the Morphogenetic field  of Rupert Sheldrake.  According to Sheldrake, the ‘morphic field’ underlies the formation and behaviour of ‘holons’ and ‘morphic units, and can be set up by the repetition of similar acts or thoughts. The hypothesis is that a particular form belonging to a certain group, which has already established its (collective) ‘morphic field’, will tune into that ‘morphic field’. The particular form will read the collective information through the process of ‘morphic resonance’, using it to guide its own development. This development of the particular form will then provide, again through ‘morphic resonance’, a feedback to the ‘morphic field’ of that group, thus strengthening it with its own experience, resulting in new information being added (i.e. stored in the database). Sheldrake regards the ‘morphic fields’ as a universal database for both organic (living) and abstract (mental) forms.

It is the Consciousness of our inter-connectedness and our uBuntu that not only highlights the effects of deceit and moral disorder but leads to the formation of new societies that deeply care for one-another and the planet we live on.   Ke Nako! (Time is Now!)

    Barbara dear…

    All that is needed to raise world consciousness is to raise our own consciousness to its fullest potential. I do not believe we need to do anything more than that. Because “we are the world”, there is no division and the moment we begin the task of raising consciousness the actual vibration of the planet is affected. By concentrating on our own consciousness raising we are in actuality doing all that we can personally do to raise the vibration of the energy which surrounds all of life. It is well known that the only way to elicit change is in changing ones own behavior. Just the sheer state of awakening will draw others to that state and thus creating a succession of events triggering like behavior. The critical mass we have discussed on numerous occasions is real and can be measured.

    Just as we see that we can be brought into darkness by human activities which tarnish and destroy we can be brought into the light by human activities which uplift and inspire. We must demand a higher standard for ourselves FIRST. We must live the life that we imagine and it then will become manifest.

    If we can each become a light unto ourselves we can accomplish all that is possible within our own human capacity to create a new world. We must continue to remember that “we are the world.” There is no “they”…..It’s US….IT’S US!!!!! When you bring a light into a room you don’t then ask: how can we actually dispel the darkness? The sheer act of light bringing dispels the darkness without any effort. The darkness is overcome and BECOMES light. So when you become a light unto yourself you are in fact doing all that is humanly possible to raise the WHOLE WORLD’S CONSCIOUSNESS…..

    Be totally blissful, totally immersed and passionately dance in your own awakeness and do it with such intensity that the dancer disappears and only the dance remains, so that your own perfect and blissful dance inspires thousands of other hearts to dance as well. They may never know where the inspiration comes, or why they suddenly feel this way. But that is of no consequence. You may never know how many lives you have influenced or how many people have been transformed but that is also not your concern. Just know that IF YOU BUILD IT THEY WILL COME. Your inspiration will be the inspiration of many, your dance will be the dance of many, your passion will inspire the passion of many so all you must do is CHANGE YOURSELF. Change the way you operate in the world. Because remember my dears, “we are the world.”
