I Dreamed Of Peace - 1966
In their blindness they can only see
All the hatred and animosity
But I wasn’t blind and I could clearly see
All that existed was hypocrisy.
Then I took a trip... all the world seemed good.
I saw the world in peace and brotherhood.
But I wasn’t blind and could clearly see
All that existed was hypocrisy.

Dear Bruce Robert Travis,
I have become convinced for many reasons that the drama that has been escalating on America’s national stage will soon lead us to places that we have never faced before as a nation.
There will be shocking revelations that accelerate in the weeks and months to come that will lead to sober self-reflection and serious reform.
It will, in short, be a kind of dark night for the American soul.
In spiritual lineages, the dark night is a preparation for a birth into a wholly new, divine pattern.
The dark night is the shedding of the old to prepare the way for the new. It’s a kind of birth canal into a new world.
If we remember this, it can allow us to shed the illusions that are ultimately what the dark night is designed to peel away.
While I believe we will have to face many unsavory truths, we will ultimately need to refocus our attention is on what we truly want to create in the years to come, which is nothing less than a world that works for all. A world that is peaceful, sustainable, and wise. A world in which we heal the wounds of the past and embrace the full human family. A world in which democracy truly serves the needs of everyone. A world of opportunity, creativity, and abundance.
While the distortions and failures might be painful to witness, the truth is that they will be playing out so that we can outgrow them.
We are moving beyond the unbalanced masculine into an era of sacred balanced between the feminine and masculine.
We are moving beyond aggression and hostility to peace.
We are moving beyond massive pollution to a regreening of the world.
We are moving beyond short-sighted greed into long-term collective care.
These shifts don’t happen overnight but with all of our focused intention, inner work, and outer service we make progress, year after year.
What I want to encourage all of us to do is to bear sacred witness for what I believe is to unfold and not cast anyone out of our hearts, even those who have done dark deeds. Let us not add more hatred to the fires of animosity that are already raging.
Instead, let’s set the stage for wide-scale peacemaking and bridge-building, deep truth, and real reconciliation.
That is what will break the cycle of destructiveness and allow for the rebirth, with our lessons fully learned. When we see others only as enemies, we gradually empower the lowest impulses in humanity to wield more and more power.
It is time for the wise, the compassionate, and the visionary to wield more power. We need a massive wave of women into political office. We need to commit to equal justice for all. We need to live with real reverence for our beautiful planet. We need businesses that commit to the greatest good.
Rather than dwell in despair, I invite you to take actions that genuinely contribute to the creation of a better world and amplify the stories of success, breakthrough, and possibility.
That is what we at Shift are committed to — everything we do is designed to uplift our consciousness and uplift our world.
If you’d like to get engaged in more positive leadership in the public sphere, we have a truly amazing event in Sacramento, California coming up from September 20-22. The California Vision 2020 conference is for visionaries, change leaders, pioneers, and trailblazers who want to create the more beautiful future we know is possible.
You can join hundreds of bright lights who want to lead the way forward together, including new speakers like Marianne Williamson, Rabbi Michael Lerner, and Louis Gosset, Jr., with music by the inimitable Rickie Byers Beckwith!
You will emerge more hopeful, excited, and empowered. And it’s part of our strategy for how we can truly shift the world.

We also have a few remarkable online Summits that can help you in the rebirthing process.
The first is the #MeToo Dialogues, which is all about creating positive momentum in this movement through dialogues with brave, visionary, and vulnerable women. Out of the horrors of sexual predation, a new possibility can emerge. While the event wrapped up Thursday, you can still get access to all the amazing dialogues here.
Second, we have Finding Common Ground, a remarkable free online series led by our Director of Peace, Philip Hellmich, and beloved ally Sister Jenna, that explores how we can find common ground through personal, interpersonal, and collective change work. Some of our favorite conscious leaders will be sharing their deep wisdom, from Shamil Idris to Dereca Blackmon to Chief Phil Lane, Jr. This starts soon, so register here.
We’re also laying the groundwork to be even more impactful at Shift in the years ahead, as we create a Shift Incubator for innovative change strategies and businesses. We look forward to working with you in the years ahead.
Let’s each raise our light to illumine the pathway forward!

Matter - January 3, 1975
Beaming through a tightly knit blanket of clouds.
Life as we know it,
A reflection in reverse.
Luminous shafts of light we are
Trying to penetrate inwards
As if upwards through the earthly
Mire of materialism and desire
That clouds our way.
To get within, to the light source,
We must go without.
To get back in.
It is not the giving up that matters.
THAT does not matter.
What is the matter
Is being controlled
When it doesn’t matter
All this matter
Then it matters.
Take the reins and take control
The path forward leads to light.
The tunnel is long and dark.
Keep your eyes trained
On that speck of light
In the far distance
And don’t look back.
I Ching Oracle reading Hexagram #27
The Corners of the Mouth (Providing Nourishment)
Above Ken Keeping Still, Mountain
Below Chen The Arousing, Thunder
I find this hexagram perplexing and I don’t quite understand two of the three changing lines; ie, six in the 2nd place and 6 in the 3rd place which conflicts with 9 at the top. I will soul search the two lower lines and try to understand what they mean.
“He who cultivated the inferior parts of his nature is an inferior man. He who cultivated the superior parts of his nature is a superior man...thus the superior man is careful of his words and temperate in eating and drinking.”
Let me summarize the hexagram.
“Perseverance brings good fortune.
Pay heed to the providing of nourishment...
In bestowing care and nourishment, it is important that the right people should be taken care of and that we should attend to our own nourishment in the right way...This is an image of providing nourishment through movement and tranquility. The superior man takes it as a pattern for the nourishment and cultivation of character.
Nine at the top means:
The source of nourishment.
Awareness of danger brings good fortune.
It furthers one to cross the great water.
This describes a sage of the highest order, from whom emanate all influences that provide nourishment for others. Such a position brings with it heavy responsibility. If he remains conscious of this fact, he has good fortune and may confidently undertake even great and difficult labors, such as crossing the great water. These undertakings bring general happiness for him and for others.”
The three changing lines of 6 in the 2nd place, 6 in the 3rd place and 9 at the top created the follow up 11th hexagram of peace/Tai formed by the first and second hexagrams of the I Ching. The 1st/Chien/Heaven/The Creative and the 2nd, K’un/Receptive.
“...The meaning of the hexagram is that what is above and what is below are UNITED and of ONE will...Good conduct, then contentment; thus, calm prevails. Hence there follows the hexagram of PEACE. Peace means UNION, interrelation.
The Chinese word t’ai is not easy to translate. It means contentment, rest, peace, in the positive sense of unobstructed complete union, bringing about a time of flowering and greatness.... good fortune. Success...In this way heaven and earth unite, and all beings come into union. Upper and lower unite and they are of one will...The small departs, the great approaches.
The movement of the hexagram as a whole produces finally a victorious ascendancy of the principles of the good man and a withdrawal and defeat of the principles of inferior men.
None of this occurs arbitrarily; it is born of the time...both in the year and in history, that is represented by this hexagram.
Heaven and earth unite: the image of PEACE. Thus, the ruler divides and completes the course of heaven and earth;
He furthers and regulates the gifts of heaven and earth,
And so, aids the people...”
“Peace, unity and union” are diametrically and cosmically opposed to the “whore of Babylon” that represents the “confusion” and chaos of the “end of days” of the “end times” marked by the the “inferior man” of the Trump administration.
This Oracle reading confirms that the global shift in consciousness to “peace, unity and union” has already happened and is just waiting for recognition on the world stage and in the media; ie the actual manifestation.
God has already appointed the day and “hour” when this global event occurs and the waiting ends. The “chaos” that is on the news now on a daily basis is the barometer for this change.
Follow up hexagram.
Chien/Heaven/Creative below. “The course of the Creative alters and shapes beings until each attains it’s true, specific nature, then it keeps them in conformity with the Great Harmony...”
“In relation to the human sphere, this shows how the great man brings peace and security to the world through his activity in creating order.” ‘He towers high above the multitude of beings, and all lands are UNITED in PEACE...the will of heaven...made to prevail on earth...Li(nature in its radiance) was the CORNERSTONE upon which Confucius built his effort to BRING ORDER OUT OF CHAOS in his era.”
Isaiah 28:16 - “Therefore thus says the Lord God. ‘Behold, I lay in Zion a stone for a FOUNDATION, a tried stone, a precious CORNERSTONE, a sure FOUNDATION.”
Ephesians 2:20,21 - “Jesus (Christ) Himself being the chief CORNERSTONE.”
Since Christ means Love, it is Love that is the foundation of the universe.
Peace, light and love,
Of course it’s just a coincidence that 666 Fifth Ave in New York City is owned by Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner at this point in time. Revelation 13:18 states: “This calls for wisdom. Let the person who has insight calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man. That number is 666.”
My take on this is that Revelation 17:16 and the “whore of Babylon” holds the key to understanding the “beast” and the “666” in relation to a man.... or Hu-man in the material world and not one specific person, although Adolph Hitler is at the top of my list of anti-Christ’s.
The “whore of Babylon” is ‘an evil world system, controlled by the Anti-Christ, during the last days’(end times). Babylon means “confusion” and “confusion” leads to CHAOS. This is not about one person being (the) Anti-Christ at all which I explained in an earlier blog. www.TheCenterForWorldPeace.Love
The sum total of 666 is 1+8=9. 9 represents completion or the end of something before the new beginning.of something. The “end times” are marked by confusion and chaos. The material world itself is the “evil world system” because it is made up of duality and illusion.
Duality implies being separate from God; the Unity and Oneness that is a Hu-man not separate from God but One with God. This dispels the illusion that is the material world. This is “Christ consciousness.” Christ means love and anti-Christ is the opposite.
The “whore of Babylon”(confusion and chaos)wants you to believe this material world is the real deal and “what you see is what you get!” Is 666 5th Ave. “real?” No. It’s not permanent and everlasting like love is so it cannot be “real.”
666 is the “beast” that is the “evil (material) world system” that Donald Trump and his family represent and the chaos and confusion his administration is creating in the world of duality and illusion. The lies create confusion and the confusion creates chaos.
As I have said many times before in my blog, If we, as human beings, are not operating from the energetic of unconditional love we are “anti-Christ.” The material manifestation of 666 of Revelation 13:18 is 666 Fifth Avenue. Coincidence must be ruled out.
The “end times”completion (666=9) are right here right now. The shift in consciousness from that of gross materialism(whore/confusion/chaos/ evil world system)to the spiritual self-less energetic is now upon us.
Donald Trump is the personification of the “evil world(material perspective) system” which is coming to an end right about now.
I call Donald Trump an anti-Christ because of his being the epitome of what gross materialism represents; Narcissistic, selfish, egocentric self centered ness, prejudice, bigoted, loveless; just the 1000 pound big gorilla 🦍 in the room representing what LOVE isn’t.
Peace, light and ❤️.

Insight into today’s numbers. Today is the 19th day. 19 represents the beginning and the end; the Alpha and Omega. The sum total of the 1 and the 9 is 10 which reduces to the #1; ONE, the number that identifies the Creator of the Universe, aka God.
God is the ONENESS and the UNITY that binds and interconnects everything as everything is made up of God.
The first four numbers of today = 19=10=1. That is; 7+1=8+9=17; 17+2=19. The 1 and the 9. So we have an inner 19 and the 19th day of the month. The sum total of today’s numbers = 28, the encoded number of the universe according to physicists. 7+1+9+2+0+1+8=28= 10= 1
One who knows.
