Pour the Wine into the Chalice - Rumi


Because I cannot sleep
I make music at night.

I am troubled by the One
whose face has the color of spring flowers.

I have neither sleep nor patience,
neither a good reputation nor disgrace.

A thousand robes of wisdom are gone.
All my good manners have moved a thousand miles away.

The heart and the mind are left angry with each other.
The starts and the moon are envious of each other.

Because of this alienation the physical universe
is getting tighter and tighter.

The moon says, "How long will I remain
suspended without a sun?"

Without Love's jewel inside of me,
let the bazaar of my existence by destroyed stone by stone.

O Love, You who have been called by a thousand names,
You who know how to pour the wine
into the chalice of the body,
You who give culture to a thousand cultures,
You who are faceless but have a thousand faces,
O Love, You who shape the faces
of Turks, Europeans, and Zanzibaris,
give me a glass from Your bottle,
or a handful of bheng from Your Branch.

Remove the cork once more.
Then we'll see a thousand chiefs prostrate themselves,
and a circle of ecstatic troubadours will play.
Then the addict will be freed of craving.
and will be resurrected,
and stand in awe till Judgement Day.

~ Rumi ~

The Girls

But I Don't Love


Each step I take I see that I am checked.

I say ‘drown me in your Love’

But I do not love.

I hold back in fear of not getting my bit.


I say ‘forgive me! Forgive me my darkened heart’

But truly, I’m not so sure I forgive.

I see the shadows of remembered slights.


I say ‘wash away my mind of arrows’

But I carry the quiver behind me.

Bitterness twists my upper lip.


And You say –

My Love. Lift your head.

Its one thing to give your Heart,

And another to act upon your giving.

One step at a time.


Let me wash you with My Bliss.

Let me shower you in My Love.


And, one step at a time,

You will clear the construction of your mind.

You will see through the eyes of your heart.

You will see without more willing, you are

Already Drowned, Forgiven and Washed.


Be still. Be with me. Feel the Pulse of Love.

Bread of Life, Wine of Wisdom


Bread of Life

Wine of Wisdom


I put the bread into my mouth and

Saw the golden heads of wheat sway.

And She said ‘It is my body.’


I felt the old traitor rise his head around

My leg and say ‘I’m not worthy of thisss.’


She smiled and showed me the digestion

Process. Chewing, the body consuming,

Leaving the waste behind.

The seeds being replanted, into the waste.

The growth is dependent upon the waste

Of the past – without doubt.


Do not be fooled, She said, tucking the hair

Behind my ear.

You consume me – present, past, future -

Entwined.

You are eating the past, right now,

For your future. Your waste will prepare

The ground for your future. Without doubt.


I can not-

Shhh. All in good time. One step. One step.

I look up – and the wine?


Her smile, so gentle.

Is there anything more obvious? Have you

Burst a ripened black grape between your fingers?

Have you seen the skin stretch and burst

And let the liquid touch your fingers?

Have you seen?


I am mesmerised by your beauty. I can barely breathe.


Ruby red – like freshly drawn blood.

Blood is your life force incarnate in physical form.

The wine is mine – drink – feel Me enter your blood.

A half sip is all you’ll need. I am the wine of wisdom.

Drink of me – fill your self with Me. One we are.

Men!! They figured it out some time ago -


Lollipops and Roses

Tell her you care, each time you speak,
Make it her birthday each day of the week,
Bring her nice things, sugar an' spice things,

Roses an' Lollipops,
An' Lollipops and Roses . . .

One day she’ll smile, next day she’ll cry,
Minute to minute, you’ll never know why!
Coax her, pet her, better yet get her,

Roses an' Lollipops,
An' Lollipops and Roses . . .

We try acting grown up, but as a rule,
We’re all little children, fresh from school . . .
So, carry her books, that’s how it starts,
Fourteen to forty, they’re kids in their hearts . . .
Keep them handy, flowers an' candy,

Roses an' Lollipops,
An' Lollipops and Roses . . .

The Water of Life


The Water of Life

If the water of Life be Love,

Then let me drown in You.

Let the water run its course

Through the valleys of me.


Let it douse all the fires of

Greed, judgement, anger, and hate.

Let it clean away the debris of

Hurt, resentment, pain and fear.


Water of Life!


Let me bath in your waterfall,

Let me swim in your river,

Let me dive to your depths,

Let me float in your fathoms.


Rise, water of life!

Fill the valleys of me

Rise water of life!

Cover the dust that is me.


Let me dissolve into You.

Come and be One with me.


Let loose your cleansing rains

Upon this tired desert.


Sweep me away until I am

No more me, and only You.

On Fear


On Fear

Darkness approaching and foot steps near,

I turn around with mounting fear.

Darkness descending, as sure as doom

A scream catches within, a moment too soon.


‘Tis but me.

The scream.

‘Tis but me.

All I see.

‘Tis but me.

Chained, unfree.

‘Tis but me

Unknowing purity.


The shadows loom at dusk, with light’s descent.

I remember the words I spoke with passion, regret.

Fear, I turn to face you, choked on myself.

Fear – you out run me – it is here I must delve.


I turn, in forged fear –

Tis me.

I see.


Divine Mother


She comes, persistent and demanding,

To penetrate the outer layers of skin and flesh.


She comes from below, from under rocks,

Deep within the dense core of the earth.


Sinuous, thick with life divine, penetrating

Through the confines of the mind.


She comes, with no reason, breaching understanding,

Undulating to music unheard by my ears.


We lay there, her children, her claimed Ones.

Terrified, spent, delirious, tormented, devoured.


She comes with Love, insisting on Her presence.

She comes with Glory, of hidden things.

She comes with Grace, of the past unknown

She comes with Forgiveness, of all that is done.


Sweetest Mother. Blossoming Flower. Divine Grace.


I sit. I feel my heart. Its pulse is Your pulse.

My breath is Your breath. Calm, for the moment.

Awash with Your Love. I am Yours.

Fear of the Self?

Fear of the Self?

We were walking down a small street in Melaka, Malaysia. The boys were in front of me, and we were all carrying large back packs from our transport to our accommodation.

We were about ten days into our four month trip. I’d read carefully all of the do’s and don’ts but didn’t feel particularly worried about anything. I thought.

Suddenly, I felt someone behind me. I was sure that they were so close I could feel them and my heart leapt. I let out a scream and turned, quickly to see who it was. But they had moved so fast! I turned again, at this moment, truly terrified.

And then, I realised, that the ‘someone’ was my back pack. My luggage.

How’s that for symbolism?

Perhaps, when you're ready, we could, as an option, put our luggage down sometimes, if not just throw it into the rubbish. Just as an option.

On Arrival (part III)


On Arrival

(Part III)

And yet part of me weeps

For the little losses.

The ideas of what should be.

The boxes with people inside.


Part of me feels afraid

To live this life without walls

This freedom seems to send

Me mad with Expanse.


Part of me scoffs

My little fears,

But mostly my fears

Are me.


Take me, so I can Be.

Break me, so I can Be.

Push me, so I do not stand.

Suffocate me, so I do not breathe.


Hurt me, so I do not Hurt.

Crush me, so I can not see.


Fill Me, so there is no me.

Erase me, so there can be Me.


Silence. Love.


The Pulse of Beauty.

On Arrival (part II)


On Arrival

Part II

I return to the self

And again try to form

Something.


The white washed smooth walls

Find me sliding to the floor.


What then, my Love,

Is this it?


What I’ve been waiting for?

The moment of Unity?


Did I have to lose so much?

So little?


To gain this trembling

Delicate balance of

Neither here, nor there -

An in between place.


Only music seems

To pour from the throbbings

Of the body made vibrant

With the Pulse of You.


The water is surging

Upon the walls of the dam.

My little structures

Pitiful before your effluence.


Crumpled me, on the floor.

The walls deny me.

Floundering here,

In the death throes.


Do I dare, do I dare

To say, to You, I do?


To surrender, to release,

To give in, to swoon

Into Your embrace.


Thick in the air,

Ambrosia.


I do, my Love.

I do.

On Arrival


On Arrival

(Dearest One)

Part I

White washed,

No colour or impression.


A blank wall,

No crags to grip on to.


Silence.


Is this what You meant?

When You said, no concepts?


Is this what You meant?

When You said, no image?


But! What can hold me up?

I feel my self falling,

Yet I am standing,

still.


I begin a tentative …

And it falls away

Before it starts.

Its already ended.


This deep cavern inside

My mind, empty, of You.


The sure pulse of Love

Continues to expand.

It reaches ever outwards

Encompassing All in


Illumination.

The Planets In a Spin




Things have gone haywire lately. The world has turned upside down. I have suddenly the most free time on my hands in about three years, and all of the projects I have been waiting to do - are still not being done.

I feel exactly like I'm standing in the lobby, my bags in hand. Just about to, but not...

I felt some of the tension drain out of my body though, because well, if its the stars and their spinning - what to do about it?

Accept, breathe, enjoy, relax, surrender. It's all ok. Thank you Pam.

(and thank you to Kristen for sending Pam my way.)

(ps - yes, I do know that the moon is not a planet or a star - but is such a great picture!)

Only From the Heart


Salvation

There is no salvation for the soul
But to fall in Love.
It has to creep and crawl
Among the Lovers first.

Only Lovers can escape
From these two worlds.
This was written in creation.

Only from the Heart
Can you reach the sky.
The rose of Glory
Can only be raised in the Heart.

~ Rumi

Nights in White Satin


Nights in White Satin

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty Id always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.

Gazing at people,
Some hand in hand,
Just what Im going thru
They can understand.

Some try to tell me
Thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be
You will be in the end,

And I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

Nights in white satin,
Never reaching the end,
Letters Ive written,
Never meaning to send.

Beauty Id always missed
With these eyes before,
Just what the truth is
I cant say anymore.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

cause I love you,
Yes, I love you,
Oh, how, I love you.
Oh, how, I love you.

Only Breath

Not Christian or Jew or Muslim,
not Hindu, Buddhist, sufi, or zen. Not any religion or cultural system.

I am not from the East or the West,
not out of the ocean
or up from the ground,
not natural or etheral,
not composed of elements at all.

I do not exist,
am not an entity in this world
or the next,
did not decend from Adam or Eve
or any origin story.

My place is placeless,
a trace of the traceless.

Neither body or soul.

I belong to the beloved,
have seen the two worlds as one
and that one call to and know,
first, last, outer, inner,
only that breath breathing human being.

The Continuing Trail


A said, join the group!

I said o k.

I met S,

Oh!

I fell for Dr -

My heart crushed.

By Buddha burned.

My mind torn.

Rumi speaks

My heart bleeds.

And now …


Thank you to Pedro for creating The Buddha Moon for me.

Become All Surrender


Happy the one who has become like us;
who has become all surrender and contentment;
Who has become the pledge of love and madness;
who has become a jewel in the sea of purity.

Falling Slowly

See Falling Softly on youtube.

I don't know you
But I want you
All the more for that
Words fall through me
And always fool me
And I can't react
And games that never amount
To more than they're meant
Will play themselves out

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you have a choice
You'll make it now

Falling slowly, eyes that know me
And I can't go back
Moods that take me and erase me
And I'm painted black
You have suffered enough
And warred with yourself
It's time that you won

Take this sinking boat and point it home
We've still got time
Raise your hopeful voice you had a choice
You've made it now
Falling slowly sing your melody
I'll sing along

Sometimes the Simple Blogs in Life Are Often the Best

Dear Friends,

Every now and then, after reading up on a blog that I subscribe to or follow, I then click the ‘next blog’ option on Blogger.

Its amazing the amount of information available on the internet! The personal stories, the complaints, the inspiration, the criticism, the beauty and the transformational.

I found a relatively new blog and was touched by her story. I left a comment and I heard from the author just the other day. She wrote -

I guess I would have to simply say is that my blog is about finding who I am, after being a mother for the past 20 years and having my children leaving the house I have been faced with trying to find my passion. I am journaling my new found photography and art to keep track of how my journey begins and seeing if this is in fact who I really am. I am just a simple person finding her way to her own truth, because I believe when truth is found, calmness surrounds us. This is the reason why my blog was formed.

What a universal theme – expressed so simply.

I don’t know how her life was before she started the blog, but since she’s started journaling and embarking on this beautiful and challenging process of self knowledge – quite a number of amazing things are happening to her. One of them, not the least, was spotting FOUR bears on the side of the road – with photos to prove it.

Open up to the World, and look what She does. Dancing in the Moonlight. Leaping across Fields. Swimming in the Ocean. Twirling Around cause it feels Good. Live Life Love.

Thank you Vivian.

Truth From the Heart


The last couple of weeks, during meditation, my right hand is guided into a similar position as the one displayed above. Its not exact. The fingers point definately upwards.

Then the hand starts to move in a kind of circle - outwards from the heart, up and around, and back to the heart. It feels like a cleansing.

I hear it in my head as - Truth comes from the heart.

The Best Place to Practice Qigong/Chi Kung


The best place to practice Qigong is outside.

Outside in a city park, or in nature, or in a rain forest. Qigong is best out of the heat of strong sun, and under the shade of a favourite tree. It helps to have water nearby. Choose a place you feel comfortable with.

If you train on the beach, then train in the early morning or during the evening.

For more information about the hows and whys, have a look at what Dr Yang says in 'The 24 rules of Qigong practice' or this article about Adopting Qigong by Hilda Wei Williams.

Remember that Qigong is a dynamic experience. There are 'rules' laid down by practitioners who came before us, but they are not set in stone.

With Love

Wu Chi Stance

Today I published a short introduction to qigong basics, on youtube.

Here is the Wu Chi Stance.


Take a look at Tai Chi on-line for some sound advice about the Wu Chi Stance also. (I don't see any point in rewriting something that is well written by someone else.)

(This little video, and the ones to follow, were inspired by Deb. Thank you for thinking that I could do it. Then you let me!)

Coming out of the Spiritual Closet


Last year, I announced at the dinner table, that finally, after years of struggling and pretending, I was ready to embrace my impression of my spirituality.

That is, I was going to be honest about how I felt about god/God, spirits, meditation, images, symbols, synchronicity and let myself in for the ‘fruity loop’ comments of my peers and companions.

Why be honest about something so private?

There are two reasons for this. The first is that I dislike lying. I dislike hiding information. I have a repulsion for it. Personally, I feel cleaner and freer telling the truth, and being open about how I feel and what I see. If that means saying, spontaneously, ‘wow, look at that flower – isn’t it just an expression of purity?’ and it brings a laugh of embarrassment from my companions, I don’t mind. I can’t and don’t wish to repress the irrepressible at this stage.

Secondly, everyone is a bit wacky. That is, everyone has strange stories to tell, but they don’t tell them, because we don’t want to be laughed at, or thought of as kooky or different. So – if you are reading this, and you have a kooky story to tell, feel free. That’s why I came out of the closet, so you feel like nothing you can say will be weirder than what Tiffany is going to say.

And in this case, it takes one to know one.

With you in fruity loop land, and loving it.

Love and blessings

Peace starts with me

Peace Begins With Me

Dr. Len points out that we always need to remember the very old saying: “Peace begins with me.” He says that if there is to be peace on earth; it needs to begin individually with each one of us.

Dr Len says that Ho’oponopono is about looking within ourselves for debts, errors or blocks in our subconscious mind that replay as problems, judgments, put downs and all kinds of other problems.

The Blocks Are Within
Dr Len says that Ho’oponopono is about saying to The Divine within us (The Self): “I am sorry, please forgive me for whatever is going on in me, that I experience the world in me this way”.

Taking 100% Responsibility
Dr Len says that when we are willing to take 100% responsibility for whatever we experience in our life, we can then go onto the next step where we say “I am sorry, and not only am I sorry, but please forgive me for what ever is going on in me that caused this”.

By saying sorry and taking 100% responsibility for whatever is going on in our lives, we are in essence saying to The Divine “I am 100% responsible, the problem is within me, and I would like You to convert whatever that memory, debt, block, error or problem is to nothing.”

And when The Divinity converts the block or memory to nothing, we return back to our original state, which is Zero or clarity.

Dr Len says that only when we have clarity, can The Divinity provide us with insight, inspiration and whatever is perfect for us.

Dr Len Watches Himself
Dr Len says that as he experiences whatever comes in to his life, he gets back to his Ho’oponopono cleaning, because he knows that “Peace begins with me”.

Dr Len says that he is willing to be 100% responsible for whatever he experiences in his life, and he makes the point that as he experiences woes and problems in his life, he constantly reminds himself that the source that caused it is within him.

Dr Len Is Working Moment To Moment With Divinity
Dr Len points out that therapists that take 100% responsibility for what they see in their clients and include “I am sorry” and “I love You” as part of their work with patients feel less burned out, and are much more effective because “Peace begins with me”.

The Problem Is Within Us
Dr Len says that as we are willing to be 100% responsible for whatever we experience in our lives, we shift our perception of the world, and that causes the world to change.
We have to take 100% responsibility for the problem within us.

Dr Len says that we all keep looking outside of ourselves for how we can solve the world’s problems, but that doesn’t work.

Working On Others Is Not Our Job
Dr Len points out that he was trained as an educator from 1964 to 1982 to help handicapped and developmentally disabled children, but then over twenty years later, he learned that that is not his job.

Change The Way We Perceive Other People
Dr Len then learned that his job is to help himself by letting go of how he perceived handicapped children.
As he changed the way that he perceived handicapped children (quite like how he changed the way he perceived the mentally criminally insane patients at the Hawaii State Hospital in the late 80’s) they changed.

Dr Len points out that it is most important to look at our own world first, and if we are willing to do that, our impact on the whole Cosmos will be enormous.

He went on to stress that most people think they are here to help other people and bring peace to the world, but that we are only here to bring peace to ourselves, because by bringing peace to ourselves, we bring peace to the world (and not the other way round).

Dr Len says that the only thing that works is if we look within ourselves and clear up the “stuff” in us. He points out that as he does this, he notices that people get well and are able to start taking responsibility for themselves.

Shakespeare’s Profound Insight
According to Dr Len, the person who had the most profound insight into the human condition was Shakespeare. Shakespeare points out over and over in all of his Sonnets that the woes that we experience now are the woes that we have experienced before.

The Change First Has To Happen In Us
Dr Len says that when we see the woe in a judgmental way, it means that it is already in us, but if we let go of if and do our Ho’oponopono cleaning by saying “I’m sorry for whatever is going on in me that I perceive the woe a certain way”, only then does it change.

But the change has to take place in us first.

Incessant Ho’oponopono Cleaning
Dr Len says that cleaning memories from our subconscious mind takes incessant moment by moment Ho’oponopono cleaning.

Experience People The Way The Divine Created Them
Dr Len points out that we never experience things correctly, but we always experience our reaction to them. Dr Len knows that when he meets people, he does not experience them the way The Divine created them, so he continuously cleans by saying to The Divine “I am sorry for what ever is going on in me that I do not experience people the way You created them, please forgive me”.

By doing this, Dr Len is asking The Divinity to cancel what is in him, that causes him to react to people, and not see them as they truly are – Divine Beings.

Dr Len says that once we let go of the dictate of memories by doing the Ho’oponopono cleaning, the memories stop playing, and not only the memories we hear playing, but many other memories simultaneously playing, but we are unaware of.

He says that when we do Ho’oponopono, we are asking The Divine to remove the faults from our Soul and subconscious mind so that we can see people being perfect, the way The Divine created them, and when we respond to them, they will respond as being perfect.

Dr Len went on to say that if we want to see people without problems, we need to get rid of our own problems first.

Dr Len says that Ho’oponopono is only about working on yourself and looking at the data and info in your personal subconscious mind that causes burdens and should be removed.

Anger Is A Memory Replaying
Dr Len says that when people are angry, it is not the person who is angry, but it is a memory replaying anger.

He said that if we know this and keep it mind, we can change the data.
The Ho’oponopono we do is not changing the other person, because that person is perfect, but what is imperfect is the data, and we have to ask The Divinity to convert that data to zero.

100% Responsibility For Whatever We Are Experiencing
Dr Len says that when we are doing Ho’oponopono, we are clearly stating to The Divine “I am 100% responsible for what I am experiencing, and I am experiencing suffering in the form of judgment or whatever. Something is going on in me (some data or memory) and it is dictating this experience, and I would like to be 100% responsible for it. I am sorry for that.”

He went on to say that the conscious mind does not take responsibly, and resorts to blame.

Erasing Memories Replaying In The Subconscious Mind
Dr Len says that as humans, we have “stuff” going on that we can’t help because of the memories replaying in our subconscious mind, and these blocks prevent us from experiencing
The Divine.

Ho’oponopono is about erasing those memories that keep us from absolutely truly living and not being constrained by fear and how we feel.

Ho’oponopono is about working on whatever is going on in us that we are not able (generation after generation) to move through to a point where we can experience The Divine.

Avoid Trying To Figure Out What Is Going On
Dr Len say that Ho’oponopono is about giving up those things in us that keep us stuck and constrained, and that we have no idea of what those things even are.
He says that we don’t know what we don’t know, so he tries not to figure out what is going on in his life, or with the people that he consults with, but that all times, he only does his Ho’oponopono cleaning on himself.

Dr Len points out that as he does his personal Ho’oponopono cleaning, he notices that people are able to work through their problems, and often they say to him that they would also like to learn how to do Ho’oponopono themselves.

Who Are We?
Dr Len says that we can be our own therapist/guru/healer, and that all we have to do is answer a couple of questions; - The most important being “Who am I?”

According to Dr Len, that is the most important question of creation, but unfortunately, most people don’t know who they are.

Dr Len said that if we know who we are, we would realize that we need to take 100% responsibility for everything we experience in our life, but that we cannot blame other people for not knowing this.

What Is A Problem?
The other thing we need to know, according to Dr Len is “What is a problem, and where is the problem?”

Dr Len says that all problems are a result of memories replaying in our subconscious mind, but that he does not deal with problems.

He says that we are all children of The Divine, and are an exact replica of The Divinity, which is at its natural state Void (clear) and Infinite, and that our job is to return to that original state of being clear, empty and Infinite.

So Ho’oponopono is about erasing and cleaning the block in our subconscious mind so that we can come back to zero/clarity, and that only out of that clarity can Divinity come in as inspiration.

Being Clear And Infinite
Dr Len says that every day he works on letting go of the blocks in his life, that keep him from being one with The Divine; - Which is to be Clear and Infinite.

Dr Len says that he does his Ho’oponopono cleaning so that he is clear and able to move through his life without experiencing hardships, anger, resentment, blame or problems.

Blame Doesn’t Work
Dr Len says that blame and saying “How Come?” doesn’t work in therapy, family or governments, but when we get back to Zero, then The Divinity can infuse our mind with whatever is perfect for us.

Dr Len says that he takes 100% responsibility for whatever he experiences as problem in the word, because he knows that the whole world is within him, and that as he changes by being 100% responsible and saying “I’m sorry”, the world changes too.

Moment By Moment Ho’oponopono Cleaning
Dr Len says that he drinks blue solar water moment by moment because it is another important Ho’oponopono cleaning tool.

From the moment that Dr Len gets up in the morning, until he goes to bed at night, he is staying with the Ho’oponopono cleaning, because he knows that erasing memories requires incessant Ho’oponopono cleaning.

He says that as we stop cleaning, we go ‘bonkers’ with the rest of the world.

Cleaning On People’s Names
Dr Len says that as people sign up for his weekend Ho’oponopono seminars, he works on their names before he enters the room.

He does this because he is attempting to reduce “piles of stuff” (memories and data in his subconscious mind) that he shares with other people. He says that if he doesn’t do this, he will show up at the class, and the class will go crazy and be stuck in thinking because he didn’t get ready for them.

Dr Len is always doing his Ho’oponopono cleaning – before, during and after he does anything.
Dr Len says that Divinity knows his connection with people he has not yet met, and whatever memories he has in common with them, and which memories are important for him to let go of.

Talking To The Divinity, Who Knows Everything
Dr Len says that Ho’oponopono is about talking to The Divinity, Who knows everything, and that he (Dr Len) is just making amends with The Divinity, because he doesn’t have any idea of what may be going on in him that is going to bug other people.

So Dr Len looks at The Divinity within himself which is The Source that knows everything, because he (Dr Len) knows nothing.

Dr Len went on to say that there is a part of us called “The Divine Creator”, and that Source knows what is going on. That is why we make an appeal, and that Source in us can cancel the information and data in our subconscious mind.

The Intellect Cannot Cancel Error Memories
Dr Len makes that point our intellect does not have the ability to cancel error memories in our subconscious mind because that is not its function.

The function of the intellect, according to Dr Len, is to make the choice of whether we are going to take 100% responsibility for everything we experience in our life (or not), and that he would like to be 100% responsible for whatever is in him that would bug other people.

Memories Make Decisions For Us
Dr Len made the point that there is enough research that proves that at any second, there are more than 11 million pieces of data going on, but that our conscious mind is only aware of 15 of them. (Tor Norretranders - The User Illusion)

He went on to say that it is scientifically proven that our conscious mind does not make our decisions, but that it is memories that that define our decisions for us.

Dr Len also said that it is memories that tell us to judge and have anger and resentment, and the conscious mind itself does not make decisions.

Allowing Divinity To Make Our Decisions
But Dr Len wants Divinity to make his decisions.
Dr Len says that we can’t serve two masters; memories making decisions and Divinity. We need to choose, and in order to have Divinity make the decisions for us, we need to have the memories in our subconscious mind canceled.

Everyone Is Already Perfect
Dr Len stressed that everyone is already perfect, but what is imperfect is the data in our subconscious minds, and that is what we have got to work on.

Dr Len said that the world is within us, and by changing the world in us, we change everything.

Concert Master At The Symphony Orchestra
Dr Len used the analogy of the concert master at the symphony orchestra to explain the Ho’oponopono cleaning.

“The orchestra always tunes up before beginning, and this is what the Ho’oponopono cleaning is, because as we get tuned up, so does everyone else. But if we come in un-tuned, it is hell to pay, and we will feel pain”.

Dr Len says that as we change the data in us that we have in common with other people, The Divine erases it from us, and them too.

Dr Len concluded by asking: What kind of profound shift would the whole world experience if everyone took 100% responsibility for everything they experienced in their life and did not get caught up in blame?
