Could the ego exist with you becoming fully self-realized? The answer is yes. How do you do that?

There are 2 simultaneous, parallel, existences that are happening. There’s your relationship with me, your relationships with everybody you know, and every incarnation you’ve ever had. Imagine there are two highways that are running parallel going in the same direction. On this highway you and I worry, you and I are engaged, you have karma with everybody from all your previous incarnations. On this highway, which is right beside it, I don’t have a clue what’s going to happen next, there is no answer, but the only thing I feel is wellness. It has no interpretation, no language, no direction, just a complete path of unknowingness and vulnerability.

The frontal lobe was designed to keep us constantly connected into the universe. This lobe and the heart have an extraordinary connection. The frontal lobe is designed to create repetition. The frontal lobe says: I’m going to worry, so we worry and we worry and the frontal lobe creates this. But instead, the frontal lobe is actually there to experience: I’m one with the universe, I’m one with the universe, I’m the universe, I’m the universe, I am God, I’m divine, I’m whole, I’m well. The frontal lobe was designed to create repetition between us and the universe.

So, 2015 is where there’s a shift on a very deep global level. Guess what? New stock options in the universe. 2015 is really about not allowing or becoming steeped in very old behaviors and emotions. Even though the economy is going to be starting to crumble, you’re going to see opportunities – there’s almost like the beginning of life at the end of the tunnel. You’re going to get a sense of – you know what, the world is going through change.

If I were to say to you - courage - what does that actually mean to you? There is psychological or intellectual courage; but courage really, truly, derives from a quality of the soul. It is a virtue of the soul. We look at courage as an intellectual experience. When we bypass the personality and truly surrender, the one thing we count on - which is our intellect, intelligence, decision-making, judgment - and we put that aside, we allow the soul. The soul runs OVER with courage. That’s all the soul knows. The soul does not say - gee, you know, I’m really scared, or I’m really afraid or constipated emotionally. Courage is a natural state of the soul. The mind is very uncomfortable with uncertainty, but the soul loves it. So imagine that! We are more comfortable being in control and the soul is quite the opposite. The soul says let’s see what interpretation today brings. When we have courage and we permit uncertainty to exist, Consciousness is born. Every day, in all of your uncertainty, there’s Consciousness.

If you can create tapestries of emotions or experience – when somebody says I want to be happy; happiness isn’t something you get, it’s something you earn. Every time you’re happy, remind yourself. That’s one tapestry. The next time you’re really happy again, bring these two tapestries together. And the next time, until you create a whole blanket, a quilt, then you have joy on a regular basis. The part of your being that you’re beginning to dive into is a complete blank canvas. That black void; it’s a room of complete darkness. In reality the room is not dark, but that’s how your mind perceives it so we’d overlook it. When you are experiencing this moment of connection, silence, or knowing you are in the vast void, that is one tapestry, one square.
