The Harmony Project

"Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.”
–-Dr. Martin Luther King

The Harmony Project is a way for individuals and small groups to directly and positively change the world –– and themselves –– with a minimum of effort. It’s a simple, uncomplicated and powerful way for individuals to positively change consciousness.
The Harmony project is based on three simple concepts:
1) The inherent spiritual nature of every human being
2) Quiet Power
3) Social networks

1) Everyone on earth has a spiritual aspect. In that profound sense, we are all linked on a very fundamental level. In the Harmony Project, we use this idea to raise our own vibration, and others as well.

A human being is a divine, immortal Spirit temporarily associated with a physical body. You either understand that, or you don’t. If you do, you are capable of reaching the state of love. Love is the quintessential expression of our inherent spiritual nature.

If you know what love feels like, then you are qualified to participate in the Harmony Project! By love I mean that powerful, awesome feeling of excitement and connection that unites all life everywhere. It’s easy to get that feeling back in your heart. All you have to do is remember a time you fell in love. Or got a wonderful present. Or saw someone smile. Or looked into the eyes of your pet. Love is a feeling of warmth that is inherent to all life everywhere. Love keeps the universe working. It is who we are at the core of our being. All else is an illusion.

2) What is Quiet Power?

Quiet Power is the expression of love. Love is serene, calming, quiet, confident, and enormously powerful. Love doesn’t jabber, shout, or scream. Love is not ostentatious or ego driven. Love is unconditional. When you love, you give your heart and soul. Love is exciting, but in a peaceful way.
Love is like giving someone a present. You wait silently, with eager anticipation, for the smile that comes when a friend or a loved one opens your gift. That smile is your reward. It is an acknowledgment of your shared divinity, of your shared spirituality. There aren’t words good enough to express that feeling. That’s why I call love, Quiet Power.

The expression of love finds many forms, in every area of life.
Have you ever noticed that the most influential people are always those who lead by example? Like Mother Theresa, or Gandhi. Or maybe, one of your friends. Or maybe your mother, or one of your relatives. It could be a teacher, a co–worker, a musician or an artist. Regardless of who it is, the people you admire most walk the walk, and don’t just talk the talk. They’re not in the streets yelling and screaming, but quietly going about their business, demonstrating competence, integrity, and compassion, showing others the true path by their example.

What is the true path?

It’s just the recognition of who you are. The cells of your body are made of condensed love. Everything in existence resonates strongly to this fundamental frequency.

The idea of the Harmony Project is to quietly open yourself up to the world, leading by example.

Don’t panic! The Harmony Project isn’t hard, it’s fun! Anyone can do it. It’s done quietly, at your own pace, and in your own time. You don’t have to sign up for anything, or study anything, or ask permission from anyone. There aren’t any rules. Everything you need for the Project is already inside of you.

3) The power of the Harmony Project is based on the social network. A social network is all of the people you know. Every country has thousands or millions of social networks, and they all overlap. These networks are spontaneous and people–created, unregulated by government or authority. Because of mobile technology, instant messaging, and email, people are now in instant communication, so an idea can spread rapidly within your network and between networks. Millions of people quietly, voluntarily and positively influencing their social networks has the same effect as one or two people reaching millions of people on the Oprah show.

It’s better to have millions of people quietly effecting change on a one–to–one basis within their personal networks, rather than a couple of people leading on the masses. Why? Because the idea of “follow the leader” has gotten mankind into trouble over the past 5,000 years, creating hierarchical societies with a few at the top and the millions at the bottom. So we simply by–pass the authorities and, without fighting or resisting the current order, create a new world.

In the American West, for example, boomtowns like Silver City, Idaho and Virginia City, Nevada simply disappeared. No one came in with an army to wipe these places out. They vanished as a result of natural economic forces. This is what social networks and endeavors like the Harmony Project will do to the established order.

What is the Harmony Project?
The Harmony Project consists of two simple activities:

1) Walk quietly down the street with love in your heart. The more crowded the street, the better! Repeat as many times as you feel like it. Or, sit quietly in a café or a coffee shop, and feel love. You don’t have to DO anything, or make a big speech, or make a spectacle of yourself. Just sit there feeling love and observe what happens. You can do this anywhere people gather. I like to do it at the checkout counter in the supermarket!

You don’t sing, or chant, or talk loudly, because that would be distracting to others, and could morph into an ego thing. Just sit or walk quietly and unobtrusively, blending in with the scenery. When you are around people and feel love, you quietly affect everyone around you. That’s because love is the most powerful vibration in the universe.

What happens is that the vibration of love goes quietly, but powerfully, outward from you to everyone around you, and alters their aura. I’ve done this myself, and when I am truly in tune with love, people will often look up and smile. Sometimes, they’ll even stop and want to talk. What you are doing is literally changing the vibration of those you meet, without having to argue with them, or “raise their consciousness.” You can’t know how powerful this can be until you actually do it! And do you know the best part? It makes you feel great! It can be addicting, in a good way.

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t see a miracle right away! The idea of the Harmony Project isn’t to show everyone how awesome you are (even though you ARE awesome!). It’s not an ego thing. The idea is first to feel love inside of you, and to share that love quietly with others. What you are doing when you radiate love around others, is vibrationally altering their consciousness. This occurs invisibly, just as radio and micro waves travel invisibly and find their way to your hand held communications device.

2) The second activity is even easier. When you talk or chat with your friends, bring up something positive and exciting, and get people talking about it.

For example, I just read an inspiring speech by a guy who says that mobile phones and social networking will completely destroy the hierarchical nature of our societies, returning power and freedom to individuals and away from governments and powerful elites. In India, poor fishermen have already used mobile technology to create a people–based market, completely unregulated by government or big corporations, that
efficiently supplies Indian coastal villages with food. People who were starving are now fed, and fishermen who were dirt poor are now doing much better. He says that in ten years, if present trends continue, it will no longer be possible for a small elite to start a war, or have economic or political dominance over humanity. Instead of governments and bureaucracies and elites having power, independent social networks of people will have power! Now that is something that excites me!
What excites you? It doesn’t have to be profound! It could be a good tune you heard, or a podcast, or a movie, or a book you read. Whatever it is, make sure it is positive, not negative. Get people thinking and talking about something inspiring.

That’s it! If you are ready to create some miracles, go to it! Share your results and successes, and ask questions, on the Harmony Project Forum: http://tinyurl.com/2gebdl.

Taking Action

You can do the two steps of the Harmony Project by yourself, or with friends. You can walk silently down the street as a group radiating love, or sit quietly in a coffee shop, café, or any other appropriate place. Remember that love is quiet and powerful, but not ostentatious. The idea is not "wow look at us, we're awesome," but "we are here to saturate this place with love and good vibes." A group of people radiating love together is an enormously powerful force, like the warming rays of the sun that reach out and touch others. And the best thing is that when you radiate love, you feel it inside yourself first. So the first person who benefits is you!

How can you tell whether something you bring up in part 2) is positive or negative? The answer is, observe how people react. Are they happy, or sad? Angry or joyful? Apathetic or excited? I’ve included a scale of emotions from highest to lowest so you can accurately catalog emotions. Positive emotion is anything above 2.0 on the scale, and that’s good. Negative is anything below 2.0 on the scale, and you want to avoid that.

Experiment with this and soon you will be much better at recognizing emotions, and become much more sensitive to people and how to make them happier. Your relationships will improve, because you will be more observant. You will also feel more powerful, because sensitizing yourself to others also makes you more sensitive to what you like and dislike. So you achieve a state of higher discernment ands knowledge of self, as well as knowledge of others.

Testing

You can test to see how you are doing. In the first step, one person acts as an observer. That person determines the emotional level of the area before you begin, and then assesses the emotions of the area afterwards. In the second step, you (or an independent observer) can monitor the emotional tone of the group before and after the introduction of a topic. In all cases, the idea is to raise the emotional / vibrational level of the group. Of course, these observations are subjective, but so is a feeling of love, or a feeling of happiness, or any positive emotion.

Send in your ideas, experiences, and successes!
Share your experiences with others and ask questions on the Harmony Project Forum http://tinyurl.com/2gebdl. The Harmony Project is as much about raising your vibration as it is about transforming others!

Feeling Love

People will respond to you in proportion to how much love you are feeling. Most of us are creatures of habit. The Harmony Project is an opportunity for you to practice love. The better you feel, the more amazing result you are likely to get.

How do you feel love?

Well, you just sit quietly and remember a time when you felt loving towards someone, or someone felt loving toward you. Then you pick up on that feeling and let it saturate your consciousness, and the cells of your body. You know what love feels like, or you wouldn’t be interested in the Harmony Project. Did you know that of all the emotions, love is the easiest feeling to let in? That’s because love is the OM, the fundamental vibration of the universe. Love is in every cell of your body. It’s who you ARE. Love feels warm and fuzzy and powerful and generous and when you really feel love, you feel invincible and wonderful and you want to share yourself with the whole world!

You can get that feeling back any time, you just have to practice! It’s the most rewarding practice you can do for yourself, because it sets you up to have a perfect day. People naturally respond positively to those who feel love. That’s the idea behind the Harmony Project.

The Quiet Revolution

You don’t have to be famous to have a positive effect. In the past, trying to change the world through person–to–person contact was time consuming and inefficient, but not anymore. Today, person–to–person contact is the best way to make positive changes, because all of us belong to social networks. When someone gets exited about something, he or she tells everyone in his or her network and it spreads rapidly. A positive idea can literally spread itself all over the planet in almost no time at all! This is how we can create a new paradigm of thought in the consciousness of humanity.

The idea behind the Harmony Project is to raise the background vibration of society, and make it possible for positive solutions to occur. The human population is growing and more and more people are reject the old values of deceit, dishonesty, competition and war. Our species is rapidly approaching a tipping point, where a quantum leap in consciousness is possible. A tipping point is defined as the critical point in an evolving situation that leads to a new and irreversible development. This irresistible development is the idea that love is more valuable than hatred, that cooperation is better than conflict, and that human nature is divine. When enough people have these ideas, our societies can literally change overnight!

Power isn’t money, or military might. Power is the ability to control what you think and what you say, and to spread positive ideas through our social networks. Social change ALWAYS happens from the bottom up, not the top down. Governments and corporations are always the last ones to figure it out. The “establishment” always piggybacks on the great ideas that come from inspired individuals. The idea of the Harmony Project is to start a Quiet Revolution.

How Can This Happen?

Imagine society not as a bunch of powerless individuals, but as a collection of dynamically interacting social networks. Governments and corporations are social networks as well! They exist, like ships, floating upon the ocean of national consciousness. That consciousness is established by we the people, through our social networks. We are the soil upon which our nation's institutions grow. If these institutions are now corrupt to the core, it is because we have allowed our planetary and national soil to become fertile for them. We unconsciously repeat, through our social networks, the same old stale ideas that have allowed the present situation to occur.

The idea is to spread love and inspiring ideas all over the world! We all know how impossible it is to get large groups of people to agree on what is best –– just look at politics! The Harmony Project by–passes ideology and belief,
and focuses on love. Love is so powerful that it immediately knocks out these lower vibrations. If you don’t believe this, then you have to actually try Step One. If you do it right, you won’t believe the positive results you will get!

Background

During the past century, the human population has been increasing at an unprecedented rate. We now have a unique window of opportunity for a paradigm shift in consciousness on a national and planetary scale. To replace the tired old memes of scarcity, conflict, hierarchy, “follow the leader,” and war, with new ones based upon the recognition of our divine, spiritual nature and a recognition that it IS possible –– and desirable –– for ALL humans to experience prosperity and live lives filled with promise and fulfillment.

Traditional consciousness raising activities take a mental approach. “If we can only educate the masses…” “If we can raise awareness on the dangers of ____(fill in the blank), we can then offer a solution that will be accepted…” etc. These approaches almost never work –– unless they graduate to a process that raises emotional tone –– because they are intellectual and sterile. Many times, they evolve into competing groups, and then argumentation and even conflict, because people always have different opinions. With rare exceptions, this has been the history of politics in every society on earth.

All successful social movements begin with a raising of emotional tone. The civil rights movement in the United States, for example, raised millions of people up the scale of emotion, which led to inspirational ideas and actions that changed our society for the better.

The lesson of the past 5,000 years of human history is that a true paradigm shift in consciousness cannot come about only through ideas. Copernicus’s realization that the earth revolves about the sun, and Einstein’s theory of relativity, revolutionized the way we viewed the universe. However, they have not led to spiritual and emotional advancement. We are still exploiting and killing each other in the 21st century just as we did in 3000 BC.

Unanimous and beneficial agreement can only occur in an environment of positive emotion. In other words, ideas that change the world in a positive direction must come forth from a positive vibration. They must be supported by and motivated from positive emotion. This is obvious, but as a species, we don’t do it, because we believe it to be impossible! Enough of us believe the lie that we are merely biological creatures and that our inherent nature is primitive.

But human nature is not barbaric and savage. That is a myth foisted upon the human race by deluded people who believe that when you die, you’re dead, and by other insecure and frightened power seekers who believe in hierarchy and domination.

How did the current paradigm get established?

Long ago in the evolution of our species, a tipping point in thought was reached. It is impossible to pinpoint exactly where or when in history this occurred. However it happened, our species consciousness reflected the memes of hierarchy, control, victimization, and “follow the leader.”

Argumentation, domination, competition and conflict emerged as the primary method of problem resolution within and between human societies. These memes became vibrationally dominant in our consciousness and have been passed down from generation to generation, not because they were inherent to human nature or superior in any way, but merely because they were continuously activated. In other words, the history of our species has resulted from a habitual way of thinking.

But habits are not natural laws! Habits of thought and belief exist only because we continuously pay them homage. Our species is like the dog and the invisible fence. The dog stops because it believes it must, even though it could step over the line at any time, and think “out of the box.”

If you think about it long enough, you can understand that the resolution to our global problems cannot come about only through ideas, or education, or traditional consciousness–raising activities. That’s because, as we all know, everyone has different opinions. However, when everyone is feeling positive emotion, it is very easy to reach agreement! In the Harmony Project, thousands of individuals quietly and unobtrusively (but effectively) act to raise emotional tone through their social networks, which provides the foundation for positive and effective ideas that will transform our societies.

The Role of Beliefs

As a species, we have not made spiritual advancement because of our beliefs. Beliefs are self–fulfilling prophecies, for beliefs direct action. Another way to say this is that actions follow beliefs. A person who believes that money is hard to get and hold onto will likely continue to be poor, because he or she will act in ways that do not allow for prosperity. A person who believes that old people are stupid will disrespect his elders. A President who believes that war is a good way to resolve problems will start one. Like the dog and the invisible fence, mankind has erected prison bars made of thought, that direct actions into narrow and self–limiting areas. We demand adherence to limiting sets of beliefs, which have been codified as religion, or ‘tradition.’ When people act outside of these narrow boundaries, they are seen to be dangerous. Beliefs, however, are just collections of thoughts. And what are thoughts? Ephemeral things that can be changed. Only when the background vibration of society is raised enough, can we change the tenor and content of thought, on a national and global scale. We have the power in our hands, right now!

I believe that the Harmony Project would have been impossible even five years ago, because humanity was not ready for it. However, world events have spiraled so far out of control that more and more people understand that change is necessary. The Harmony Project is designed to nudge this process along, like a powerful ocean current which carries the ships that sail upon it.

Establishing Harmony

The way to establish harmony and cooperation is not to fight against the established order, or that which is repugnant. Getting people to fight and resist something is a clever psychological ploy that just continues the unwanted thing. As Mae West once said, “All pub is good pub.” All she meant was that it doesn’t matter whether you agree with something, or fight it, because it’s the same thing: you promote it either way. “Mae West is a terrible actor!” is almost as good as, “Mae West is a great actor!” That’s because people say, “Who is Mae West? I’ll look her up.”

When human beings want change, we organize to fight abhorrent things like poverty and cancer and terrorism. But in fact, fighting something just makes it bigger. Despite the War on Poverty, there is more poverty. Despite the War on Cancer, we still have lots of cancer. In the United States, the War on Terrorism has resulted in the elimination of our freedoms and civil liberties, through legislation like the Patriot Acts, the Military Commissions Act and the Homegrown Terrorist Protection Act.

Successful social and political movements are based on the creation of something positive, not the elimination of something negative!

Unfortunately, politics is almost exclusively the latter.

In Eastern thought, this concept is known as non–resistance. Non–resistance has been misinterpreted by Western philosophy to mean, “let yourself get steamroll
ed.” This is, however, a distortion of a very powerful and profound idea.

Saying “No” to something is the same as saying “Yes” to it, because either way, you place your attention on it, and spread it around. The more we fight terrorism, for example, the more fear we have, and the more laws are passed restricting our freedoms. The more we resist climate change and fossil fuels, the more emphasis we give to fossil fuels. Nowhere is this demonstrated more clearly than at the climate change conference in Bali (December 2007).

Scientists and participants on both sides of the climate change issue debate whether fossil fuels are the cause of increased global CO2 emissions. This debate focuses on fossil fuels, not on the development of clean and alternative energy sources.

This idea is expressed in the universal principle of ‘like attracts like.’ Whatever you think about and talk about the most will be what you create, and what you experience. You can test this in life by living mindfully. When you become more aware of your thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes, you will begin to see a correspondence between them and what you manifest in life.
We have been taught just the opposite, however. We’ve been taught that we think a certain way because of the way reality is. But of course, that philosophy is a recipe for failure, and a life that never changes. Following that line of thinking turns people into robots, and gets them feeling powerless. When that happens, people can be easily manipulated, which is what has happened throughout human history.

Summary

So let’s wake up the human race! The Harmony Project is a great way to quietly and effectively raise the background vibration of society.

In the Revolutionary War, the United States achieved political freedom from Great Britain. All intelligent people now understand that modernly, war cannot be the answer. War and conflict and all that support it are outdated and pathetic relics of the Old Order! We seek solutions on a much more powerful level.

We need a spiritual, not a political, economic, or scientific solution. These have all been tried and found wanting. We need, not a political revolution, but an evolution in consciousness. The Harmony Project is itself an evolutionary leap, for although we are in the streets and in the shops, and everywhere people congregate, we are invisible to the gross forces of authority, and outside their purview.

In our program, we operate in concert with the higher vibrations, using the subtle, but immensely powerful energies of love. You see, it is impossible to do the Harmony Project by yelling and fighting, for love does not do that. In the higher vibrations, we use Quiet Power. We are Revolutionaries of Love!

What is happening on our planet?

A rapid rising of consciousness as humanity wakes up from 5,000 years of slumber. This rising of consciousness is directly related to population increase. As our numbers increase, we have a unique window of opportunity to effect a paradigm shift in human consciousness.

Long ago in the evolution of our species, a “tipping point” in thought was reached. A tipping point is defined as the critical point in an evolving situation that leads to a new and irreversible development. However it happened, our species consciousness reflected the memes of hierarchy, control, victimization, and “follow the leader.” Conflict, competition, argumentation and war emerged as the primary method of problem resolution. These memes became vibrationally dominant in our consciousness and were passed down from generation to generation, not because they were inherent to human nature or superior in any way, but merely because they were continuously activated. In other words, the history of our species has resulted from a habitual way of thinking. But habits are not natural laws. Habits of thought and belief exist only because we continuously pay them homage. We are like the dog and the invisible fence. The dog stops because it believes it must, even though it could step over the line at any time, and think “out of the box.”

A change in thought can lead, quicker than anyone might imagine, almost instantly to a new paradigm of thought. When thought changes, actions change. It is literally true that we can, by taking control of what we think and believe, change our societies almost overnight! Anyone who saw the crumbling of the Berlin Wall knows what I’m talking about.

As a species, we have not made spiritual advancement because of our beliefs. Beliefs are self–fulfilling prophecies, for beliefs direct action. Another way to say this is that actions follow beliefs. A person who believes that money is hard to get and hold onto will likely continue to be poor, because he or she will act in ways that do not allow for prosperity. A person who believes that old people are stupid will disrespect his elders. A President who believes that war is a good way to resolve problems will start one. Like the dog and the invisible fence, mankind has erected prison bars made of thought, that direct actions into narrow and self–limiting areas. We demand adherence to sets of beliefs, which have been codified as religion, or ‘tradition.’ When people act outside of these narrow boundaries, they are seen to be dangerous. Beliefs, however, are just collections of thoughts. And what are thoughts? Ephemeral things that can be changed!

A group of people on our planet are resisting the inevitable change to a new paradigm of thought aligned with true human and spiritual values –– those in government and in finance who see the coming shift and, in their fear and insecurity, perceive a loss of power and status. Paradoxically, these people –– albeit unknowingly –– are working against themselves and for the establishment of the new consciousness.

In the United States, corruption at the highest levels of our government is rampant, as is indicated by current legislation before the U.S. Congress. The “Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act,” which passed the House on a vote of 405 to 6, makes blogging, speaking, or writing anything critical of the government a “terrorist” act. That’s right folks. As of Nov 30, this traitorous piece of legislation was still before the Senate as Senate Bill 1959.

At the highest levels in the United States, criminality is now the norm in politics and finance, and departure from criminality is perceived as aberrant. In the past twenty years, a separate banking and financial system has been established worldwide by criminal elements, creating a river of illegal fiat money that has been used to bribe political leaders all over the world.
For example, Secretary Paulson held a news conference on 6 December, in which he announced the creation of the Hope Fund, and the freezing of interest rates on adjustable rate mortgages. Freezing of interest rates essentially invalidates all adjustable rate mortgage contracts. Those who invested in these mortgages are now screwed out of the interest they would have gotten. In a country that abides by the rule of law, a contract is sacred. Violation of contract is dishonest –– it’s the same as giving your word and then going back on it. It’s no different than your bank telling you that the interest on your Certificate of Deposit will no longer be paid, and that you cannot withdraw your money! The so–called Hope Fund was created, according to Christopher Story of the International Currency Review and World Reports, with stolen money!

The “mainstream” news media has completely ignored these developments.
But guess what?

All of this works in our favor!

The myopic and brain–dead mainstream media refuses to report on these developments, which is a good thing. Why? Because it prevents panic. It prevents more people from focusing on what is not wanted. In this case, ignorance IS bliss! In other words, if the masses are convinced that all is well financially, that creates the vibrational groundwork for positive solutions. The criminal element NEEDS panic and uncertainty to accomplish their goals. At the same time, exposing their illegal criminal activities is impossible! So they play into our hands by doing their dirty work behind the scenes.
The march toward a tipping point in the consciousness of humanity is inevitable. To stop it, a massive worldwide disaster that radically reduces population would be necessary. I no longer believe in the arguments promoted by those who claim the earth is facing a climate crisis and that the planet is in imminent danger, and that the human race faces the prospect of destruction, even though I certainly do agree that we need to find alternative sources of energy. There are valid scientific arguments on both sides of the climate issue, but after watching Live Earth I was appalled at the negative nature of the presentations. You can always tell the validity of anything by identifying its position on the scale of emotion/vibration. Live Earth was in the vibration of fear. Anything positive is valid, anything negative is invalid. Anything that uplifts and inspires is valid, anything that scares you is not!
Here is an excerpt from The Report on Iron Mountain released in 1966, a document which analyzes the different ways a government can perpetuate itself and control its citizens.

On p. 39 this document states
“The war system has not only been essential to the existence of nations as independent political entities, but has be equally indispensable to their stable political structure. Without it, no government has been able to obtain acquiescence in its “legitimacy,” or right to rule [sic] its society. The possibility of war provides the sense of external necessity without which no government can long remain in power. The historical record reveals one instance after another where the failure of a regime to maintain the credibility of a war threat led to its dissolution, by the forces of private interest, of reactions to social injustice, or of other disintegrative elements. The organization of society for the possibility of war is its principle political stabilizer.”

Sound familiar?

Well, this document offers something really surprising. In an attempt to discover ways in which regional and/or world government could establish and perpetuate itself, it was recognized that there must be a credible global threat. War on a planetary scale is obviously self defeating. So what other elements could be used to legitimize a world government? The document explores a number of alternatives, concluding that the environmental pollution model is the most likely to succeed. In the words of the document,


“When it comes to postulating a credible alternative for war…the “alternate enemy” must imply a more immediate, tangible, and directly felt threat of destruction. It must justify the need for taking and paying a “blood price” in wide areas of human concern. In this respect, the possible substitute enemies noted earlier would be insufficient. One exception might be the environmental–pollution model, if the danger to society it posed was genuinely imminent. The fictive models would have to carry the weight of extraordinary conviction, underscored with a not inconsiderable actual loss of life…It may be, for instance, that gross pollution of the environment can eventually replace the possibility of mass destruction by weapons as the principal apparent threat to the survival of the species.”

I’m not suggesting that events like Katrina have been orchestrated, or that Al Gore is part of some giant conspiracy to destroy mankind. What I am suggesting is that people on both sides of this issue may have an agenda.
Instead of concentrating our attention on the conservation of fossil fuels (which just perpetuates the idea of fossil fuels) we should be CREATING the possibility of alternative, clean, and abundant energy sources. If Al Gore spent as much time and political capital on promoting alternative energy as he does in scaring people to death about an imminent environmental collapse, I believe that his time would be better spent!

Fear and scare tactics can NEVER create positive solutions, precisely because a vibration of fear will generate a fearful solution!

The use of alternative fuels automatically means that you aren’t using fossil fuels. That’s much better than trying to get everyone to use less fossil fuels! Personally, my wife and I are spending some of our savings on a geo–thermal heating system, which is a closed system that operates using water from pipes dug under the ground.

Remember that getting people to fight or resist something makes it bigger. This is a clever psychological ploy that enables the promotion of repugnant ideas. If you create organization A to promote war, and then create organizations B,C, and D to FIGHT war, all attention is then co–opted to the promotion of war. For it is obvious that fighting war is the same as promoting war, for the common vibration is WAR. This is how the people of the United States are being cleverly manipulated into acquiescing in the destruction of their liberties.

My point is that the march toward a tipping point in human consciousness can be stalled IF you can scare people to death. Those of us who understand our spiritual nature, and who are on the leading edge of the revolution (or should I say evolution) in consciousness, must be aware of the tactics used by those who fear such a quantum leap in awareness. But we must also realize that these tactics are self–defeating. The only way we can fail is to go into agreement with the real terrorists –– those who wish to rule and control us.
Collectivist solutions that involve a hierarchical expansion of regional or global government are promoted by those who are in fear and who NEED to be at the top of the pyramid. We must reject these solutions and take back our power. We can do this by activating our social networks; by positively creating our lives, and refusing to involve ourselves in resisting or fighting that which is repugnant.

I’ll have much more to say on this in another blog post.

Universal Principles, War and Peace

From Ken’s book “The Vibrational Universe”:

People object to the concept of non-resistance, especially in a political context. There are some who think, for example, that the armed forces protect a country from attack and guarantee the freedom of all of its citizens, and that non-resistance is a cowardly attempt to duck the responsibilities of a good citizen. But this is just another of those un-inspected 'truths' which are floating around in mass consciousness.

The armed forces exist to fight. They are an exact vibrational match to others who also wish to fight, and to those who are resisting fighting, war, and conflict. (The energy stream of resistance is building a wall, and the energy of the warrior is to knock down the wall.) This resistance to war can take many forms, but it always resides on the lower levels of the Emotional Scale (fear, anger, hatred, etc.).

Their little play is acted out upon whatever stage is chosen by them, and their actions only affect those who are resonating to the vibrations of conflict. And indeed, most of us in this society have been raised in an environment of war (cold or otherwise), and if we watch the news every night, it is very likely that almost all of us have activated somewhere within us, support for, or fear of, conflict. Those who resonate purely to the vibrations of peace, harmony and love will never find themselves involved in a war, unless it is their conscious choice to become so involved (like James Twyman, the peace guy). This is something most people find impossible to believe, but it is entirely consistent with universal law. Nevertheless, we say here with absolute certainty that the Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction are inviolate and infallible and will always work in your favor if you focus positively. You cannot be a victim of conflict, if you do not resonate to conflict.

The armed forces protect no one, for it is impossible to protect anyone from anything, as we have already seen. If you are a warrior, then you love fighting and the military is a perfect career, for you then associate with other warriors and you can have a grand time. Blood and guts! But don't make the mistake of thinking you are protecting anyone else. Vibrationally speaking, as a warrior you add your individual contribution to the overall vibe of fighting and war. For a true warrior fighting is a release, but to the rest of us, war is a very imprisoning activity.

The idea that the armed forces protect the citizens of a nation from attack is, however, a great justification for their existence. You could not think of a better reason to promote military activities! It is actually a very clever way of psychologically training people to resonate to war and conflict. If you have followed me so far, however, you understand that fighting those who wish to promote or fight wars is pointless. Vibrationally speaking, you engage the other on his own ground! You become that which you hate, and find yourself part of the problem instead of the solution. Eventually, you learn the hard way that attempting to change the activities of others places you squarely in opposition to the Law of Free Will. Actions stem from beliefs, and although you may physically conquer, it is impossible to ensure a change in thought. Objecting to unwanted things feeds energy to them. Thus, love is the only way to deal with hate.18

There may be many objections to this. "OK, what about WW II? If morons like you had their way, we'd be speaking German right now and living in a dictatorship." Well, resistance to Hitler (or fear, same thing) allowed him to grow in power. In Germany, much discontent and agitation existed from the grossly unfair terms imposed on that country (in the minds of many Germans) by the allies after WW I, and the hyperinflation of the Weimar government threatened to wipe out what was left of the middle classes.

Hitler grew powerful internationally because of an enormous amount of resistance. Hitler started out as a little punk that grew more influential, not because people ignored him, but because they did not ignore him. Historical evidence shows that some of Hitler's funding came from sources outside Germany. Somebody who wants to fight needs another to push back. A vibration of conflict needs a matching vibration in order for it to take root. The martial art known as Aikido operates upon this principle, essentially refusing to resist the fighter and by using his own energy against him. Every time you resist something, you feed it power.

Many people think this is nutty. "If we didn't fight Hitler he would have walked all over us." People like to point out examples in history where peace-loving people were massacred by invading barbarians. The lesson, they claim, is that negative forces, if ignored, can overwhelm entire societies. But this is not how it works. We do not live in a universe where beings in it are powerless. There are no victims. The belief in negative forces is a massive distortion that mankind has placed into the species mass consciousness. It sets up a self-fulfilling idiocy in which a powerful vibration is offered, and eventually matched.

It may seem nutty to say that if people outside Germany placed their attention on well-being instead of resisting Hitler, that he would not have attacked them. However, the universe responds to individuals, even though it seems that groups of people are randomly affected. The only way every one of a group of people could be affected by the same event is if all of them thought alike. Mankind as a species has a tendency to want to agree. This is a divine impulse born from inner knowledge of love and connection to all things, but it gets people into trouble when the agreement is on something uncomfortable! That is why mass media is so effective, for it gets people thinking and agreeing on the same thing. It allows those who control the media to inculcate ideas into the minds of people on a massive scale.

A truly loving person never encounters hatred. That is an inevitable conclusion from the vibrational universe concept. There are, however, unacceptable religious consequences (for some) that proceed directly from its acceptance, and which are beyond the scope of this book.


Group dynamics are always a function of individual dynamics. Every individual conscious being in this universe is guaranteed to have complete freedom of choice, and the universe is designed to always respond to those choices, no matter what others are doing. I don't care how many history books or political commentaries you have read. All individuals are guaranteed by the laws of the universe to be sovereign regarding their own experiences. If this seems hard to believe, I invite you to test it for yourself.

People don't believe in their own power because the history of planet earth for the past several thousand years seems to be one of inevitable disaster. The thought stream of conflict and war is very powerfully activated in the human mass consciousness. We a
re raised from birth immersed in the idea that in order to be secure, it is necessary to protect yourself from the bad guys. However, no one ever bothers to actually look at history. The history of this planet is mind-numbingly predictable: find something you don't like, try to get others to change their behavior to suit you, if they don't do what you say start a fight. Or, look at something you don't like, become afraid that it will come into your experience, and try to protect yourself from it. Just like Joe Doakes and Cecil Aldershot, those who want to fight and those who protect themselves are perfectly matched vibrationally. This nonsense has been going on for millennia, stupidly, over and over and over and over.

You cannot protect yourself from anything. The attempt to protect yourself from something unwanted draws it to you. It's a simple application of the Law of Vibration and the Law of Attraction.

When the battles are fought, a person with a vibration of peace will not be present. He or she will be at a dinner party, or somewhere out of harm's way. A person who is tuned to well-being has far greater probability of being somewhere that war is not, and well- being is. That is because the ratio of well-being to disaster is overwhelmingly in favor of well-being.

History texts and news media proclaim 'country A is at war' implying that every person in the country is affected by the war and supports it, and that war is present over every square mile. But of course that is not true. Go back to WWII and look at where battles were fought and bombs were dropped. Even during the height of the destruction of Germany, only a small area of the country was involved in conflict at any one time.

"Country A is at war" means that a relative handful of people in the government of country A have declared war on the government of country B. Now, goes the mantra from mass consciousness, it is the patriotic duty of every citizen to get behind their government and support the troops, thus entraining the vibration of the populace to war. An analysis of how this happens and how entire populations get involved is beyond the scope of this book, but it would make an interesting political study.

In the physical sciences, resonant entrainment of oscillating systems is a well-understood principle. If you hit a tuning fork which produces a frequency of 440 cycles per second (an A note) and put it in close proximity to another 440 Hz tuning fork, the second tuning fork will begin to 'sympathetically' oscillate, or resonate. The first tuning fork is said to have entrained the second. The physics of entrainment apply to biosystems as well, especially brain wave entrainment.

In other words, the idea of patriotism sets the citizenry up to resonate to the vibration of fighting and war. The more powerful vibration has a tendency to entrain individual ones. However, knowledge is a powerful thing. Once you step into your power you can't ever be fooled again. No one can BS you, propagandize you, trick or coerce you. You become immune to harm.

In this book, we have extended the meme concept mentioned in an earlier chapter and the entrainment concept above to consciousness itself, and have postulated a thought/vibrational interaction based upon the influence of a universal field of subtle energy. The validity of such an approach only becomes apparent when you begin to think and act from such an orientation. Then the value of it becomes obvious, for it places you always at cause-point in your life.

In our vibrational model of the universe, vibrational proximity is more important than nearness in time and space. In my rural neighborhood, there are a dozen houses close to mine, but there is little interaction. I have much more in common with some of my Internet friends who live hundreds of miles away. A salesman may approach you with a sales pitch, but he has no hope of success unless he is vibrationally aligned with you. In fact, vibrational incompatibility results in physical separation.

I remember, several years ago in my negative phase of life, I showed up at a group meditation for world harmony and peace. There were a dozen people present, and after a few of my cynical comments, some guy looked me in the eye said politely but firmly, "You don't seem to be catching the spirit of this. Perhaps you shouldn't participate." Everyone turned to me in silent agreement, and I felt like a puppy caught crapping on the carpet. I slunk out of there with my tail between my legs, embarrassed, my negative contributions powerfully rejected. Vibrationally, I was incompatible and could not comfortably occupy the same space.

It's not my purpose to bad-mouth the armed forces. As I said earlier, warrior types love to fight and the military is a perfect expression for their desire to mix it up. The rest of us just have to wise up and stop trying to 'fix' them. The [warriors] of the world are not going to go away, because their decisions are fully supported by universal law. There is nothing wrong with someone who disagrees with you, or acts differently than you. He or she is just different, and contributes their valuable note to the overall symphony of life.

"Yes, but the military kills innocent citizens and wreaks destruction," you say. It does. But I invite you to stop them! You will quickly find out what an impossible task it is, but you will probably learn a lot about the principles of the Universal Operating System in the process.

If you do not want war, then paradoxically you must allow all war. By that is meant, you must not resist or push against those who believe in war. If you do, then in your worry, fear, or anger, even if it is only for others, you will begin to resonate to the vibration of war and contribute to it. This is the impossible principle so many wise ones have tried to explain to the bulk of humanity for millennia. Stated more generally, non-resistance to the vibration of X is the only way to guarantee that you will never become involved with X.

The implications are enormous, for it means that you cannot prevent another from becoming involved in harmful activities! Each being is sovereign and has control over his or her vibrational platform of attraction.

What is the solution, then, for those who wish to prevent war? It is to focus exclusively on peace, to BE peace, as my friend Craig would say. To focus on peace and network with others who are also of like mind and begin to spread the vibrations of peace around the world. The more people who pick up on these vibrations, the less chance of war, for those who might be drawn into conflict, in their fear of it, will be placing their vibration in an attitude of peace instead.

The best way to influence others is by setting an example. Help, in the form of persuasion, coercion, reward and punishment, will eventually fail. By living your truth you become a beacon for all who observe you. You walk the walk, and not just talk the talk.

It is very easy to talk the talk. It is very understandable to want others to change their behavior, because if you don't like "A," it is obvious that if you can eliminate "A" from your environment, you can be happy. But going down that road is a long, hard trek, for you must constantly monitor your environment, vigilantly ensuring that those who disagree with yo
u behave themselves. Unfortunately, you usually end up morphing more and more into what you dislike. As Walt Kelley, the late writer of the old "Pogo" comic strip once said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us."

The Harmony Project

Speaking of walking the walk, wouldn’t it be a great idea to spread positive vibes throughout the world? Well, I believe there is an easy way to do so. The Harmony Project is based upon the concept of social networks, and the power of love and inspiration. Positive vibrations subsume lower ones. The Harmony Project outlines two simple but powerful activities that anyone can do in their own communities. You don’t need any training, or permission from anyone. It’s something you do quietly, at your own pace. Interested? Look for The Harmony Project in the December’s Spiritual Wisdom newsletter.
