Vol.2, #11

The purpose of the Big Picture Newsletter is to spread the message of Spirit, and to celebrate the spiritual nature of human beings. We are dedicated to dissolving the myth of the randomness of life, and the biological nature of consciousness. We believe that every human being is a piece of God, a powerful creator and orchestrator of his or her life experience.

Action and the Law of Attraction

One of the questions Ken is often asked is: is it possible to manifest through thought only, without taking action?

Well, let us first say that the universe is a sea of vibration that responds instantly to any change in your thoughts and in your vibration. When we say “your vibration,” we simply mean the total content of your thoughts, beliefs, postulates and feelings about everything in life.

When you tune the dial on the radio, you pick up different stations and different programs. There are not programs associated with EVERY frequency in the FM radio dial, however! If you are able to tune into a frequency that is broadcasting a program, you will get it! In that sense, if you were able to broadcast a strong, clear, unsullied signal, you would experience an appropriate manifestation. In other words, if you really wanted a new Porsche and you were somehow able to send out a perfectly clear signal to the universe, you might find someone driving up to your house in a Porsche asking for directions! If your signal was very strong and pure indeed, you might find a long lost uncle who leaves you sixty thousand dollars. Who knows how it might work out!

Manifesting a Porsche in this way is possible, of course, because someone else has already created Porsche’s, so they already exist.

However, if you are someone who really wants a Porsche but is pretty sure you can’t have it, you might find yourself driving by the Porsche dealer one day, looking at that beautiful automobile and feeling sad because you know you’ll never get one.

If you want to create a painting or start a new business, that is much different than the Porsche, because this is something that does not yet exist. To create it, you have to use the tools of the physical universe in order to accomplish your goal. Thought alone will not create your business or your painting!

If you have a strong desire for world peace and broadcast that to the universe, that is again much different than the Porsche. Although there are a lot of people who wish for world peace, there are also many who do not. Therefore, even though your individual vibrational signal will always result in a response from the universe, you must take action! Getting many people together to vibrate in harmony with world peace is much more effective than yourself alone. So let us say that thought is the very most important ingredient in manifestation, but action is always involved.

This brings up an important point. You have heard, we are sure, the idea that you must pay attention to what you want and ignore that which is not wanted. What happens when you place your attention on something that has not yet manifested? You create templates of thought within the species consciousness, associated with your desire. This allows others to pick up on them, when they twiddle their radio dials, looking for something. The more sophisticated your thought forms are, and the more they are accompanied by a strong desire, the stronger they are and the more likely others are to receive them. Therefore, the more you pay attention to wanted things, even if you take no action regarding them, you create conditions for others to act upon them! That is why ranting and railing against things you dislike is very counter–productive.

Here is the most important part of our message: An interesting thing happens when you get excited about something, as we are sure you have noticed: there is the desire to get into action! We explain this simply by saying that when you connect with a desire, you connect to creative energy. Creative energy is so powerful it can change the world. It is Source energy, the energy that keeps the universe in balance, and continually growing. You are all creators, do you understand that? By creators, we mean that when you become focused upon something, your thoughts become directed and you literally create new energy that adds to the whole. The Earth, with its contrasting environments, is literally a thought amplifier that results in very, very powerful thought streams.

So getting excited about something is very important. Not only does it make you feel wonderful, but it is the first and most powerful step on the way to manifestation. The cycle goes: desire, excitement, action. Action is an integral component in the creative process, which leads to manifestation. Action is a natural outgrowth of thought that is in alignment with desire. Action is, then, inevitable in the creative process, and in manifestation. The desire for action is an indication that you are lined up with what you want! When you feel like DOING, when you are eager and excited, you have engaged not just your mind, but also your heart, your emotions, and your entire being.

This is very important, so we will restate the above. If you have identified a desire and have aligned your thoughts toward it, you will feel excited and eager to DO. So if you are ready to begin a project but do not feel positive emotion, you are not yet completely aligned to it. You see, spiritual wisdom is not just esoteric! The laws of the universe have practical application in every area of life. In future messages, we will delve into practical metaphysics in greater detail.

The creative process is designed to get you feeling wonderful. It is designed to get you connected with source energy. And when that happens, you begin to connect with your Higher Self, and with perceptions, feelings and intuition that you didn’t know you even had! It leads, in other words, into the unknown, to higher vibrations, to new discoveries, new insights, and the creation of new worlds!!!

We do not exaggerate. As Ken sits here trying to type this out, he is literally coming out of his chair! That is what connection to creative energy does.

The Law of Attraction is part and parcel of the fabric of existence.  ‘Like attracts like’ is something you can observe in your own life, and in the lives of others. In order to do so, you must live mindfully, otherwise you never notice the correspondence between your thoughts and desires and what you get. It is very instructive to write down all of your thoughts, and then examine your life in relationship to them. If you are honest you will discover complete correspondence!

We will conclude by saying that the universe has been designed to support your choices, and the Law of Attraction helps you to do that. It is entirely logical and fair in its operation, never favoring one over another. You live in a universe that loves you and wants to help you achieve everything you desire! Why not get started now and discover what it is that you really want from life? That first step has to come from YOU. Don’t wait another second to connect with the awesome and magnificent creative energy of the universe, for it is literally who you are!



There has been a lot of talk about the year 2012. It is supposed to be the end of the Mayan calendar, and many have suggested that events on planet earth will reach a denouement. What about the year 2012? Is there something special about that year that will result in a coming together of consciousness, in a good sense or a bad sense?

The year 2012 reminds us of the runup to the year 2000. If you recall, there was much talk of the end of Western civilization, due to the failure of computer software. You see, you can answer any questions by referring back to universal principles. These natural laws tell you that the universe will answer congruently to the thoughts, beliefs, and postulates of everyone on the planet earth. You are literally writing your own future, but almost none of you realize it. You assign your experiences as a species to universal forces, or things beyond your control. The process by which you manifest is invisible to you, because your human senses cannot see your thoughts and how the thoughts of others match up to yours, as we can. To us, the power of thought is as obvious as the sun coming up in the morning, for in Native State we see much more clearly.

To answer your question, we ask: What do you believe?

Are you convinced that the year 2012 will bring with it cataclysmic earth changes? If so, you are contributing to that outcome, for the universe will answer it.

Do you believe that the year 2012 will result in the abolishment of war and usher in a new era of peace and harmony? If so, you are contributing to that outcome, for the universe will answer it.

The Big Secret of earth is that the future is NOT written. Humanity wants to believe that there is a Great God in the Sky who knows everything and is choreographing events on earth. We say that this Great God is simply the Law of Free Will, the Law of Vibration, and the Law of Attraction at work. What is not understood within the consciousness of humanity is the primacy of free will, which is an inevitable result of the First Principle. The First Principle states that consciousness is non–physical and immortal, and that consciousness created the universe and everything in it to enhance Its experience.

We know that this is an unsatisfactory answer for many of you. You want The Great Secret of Life, the Theory of Everything that will express, in one sentence, or one equation, The Answer that will create such a rush of awe and excitement that it will blow everyone away forever and cause you to be in bliss forever. Do you know what this Secret is?

Shhhhh….we will whisper it.

The Big Secret is…YOU!

We can hear the groans now!

“That’s no answer! Me? Who am I but a collection of blood and bones! I’m nothing special!”

Oh, but you are!

You see what conception you have of yourselves. Now you may understand why the history on planet earth has gone the way it has.

Well guess what, humans! YOU, in Native State, are a mind blowing, awesome, magnificent RUSH of the best possible feelings you could ever imagine. That is who you are. And when you return to the state you call Higher Self, you will understand this in every single moment.

Even though you have freely chosen to incarnate, which results (by design) in a limiting of your spiritual awareness, humanity individually and collectively has the potential to create anything on earth that it chooses. The combination of those choices will determine the collective experience.

What do you choose?


Did you know that consciousness affects physical structure? This is something that a scientist would laugh at, because there is no way to measure thought. Nevertheless, projects like the Washington D.C. Transcendental Meditation experiment show that when a group of people meditate on harmony and peace, others pick up on it. The crime rate actually went down in D.C. during that experiment, and then returned to normal afterwards.[1] Skeptics, of course, assign physical causes to physical manifestations, and deny the effect of thought (even though the statistical probability that this result could reflect chance variation in crime levels was less than 2 in 1 billion).

But we assure you that thought has a powerful effect, even to the operation of physical laws. Did you know that the planet earth is unique –– and so is every other planet with intelligent life –– in that the collective consciousness determines what is drawn forth from the potential. The potential is the vast sea of vibration that composes the All–That–Is, and of which you, encased in your physical containers, perceive only a tiny, insignificant portion.

The universe is in balance. The attractive force of gravity is complemented by a force that you might call anti–gravity – a force that repels. The current mindset of humans on earth does not allow you to understand this force, and so you use fossil fuels as propellants. Once the mindset changes, however, new discoveries are made, just as the vinyl 33 1/3 LP gave way to the laser disk for music, so too can a change in consciousness result in the discovery of new physical laws. A change in perception can allow something that was once deemed an unbreakable law –– like gravity ––  to change into something greater.

We will not tell you whether you are just discovering new laws or actually creating them as the new thought forms become more focused, sophisticated and powerful. This is just semantic hair splitting. What we will say is that whatever you can imagine, you can create.

Therefore, do not be disturbed by those who predict disaster coming in 2012, lest you add your energy to it. Create within your being a world of harmony and prosperity. Gather together in groups to create a new reality. And then watch it unfold in your own lives!
