May 2003: THE BRIDGE

Updated May 3, 2003


The final weeks of April brought in some very Scattered Surf which had its strongest effect on our mental bodies, causing us to go into mental overdrive. Thinking... thinking... thinking... No matter what we were doing.... night and day.... thinking.... Not necessarily coming to any monumental realizations, but thinking about everything. Reviewing our pasts, reviewing our present situations, reviewing where we want to go from here.

At the same time, many elements were brought to completion in April. Some of these were the resolution of long drawn out issues which we had yearned to be free of for years. Finally, they are out of our lives!

Other resolutions were the letting go of old friendships which had run their course and couldn't grow deeper. The road that you were traveling together simply came to an end and there was no more to say.

We also kept running into situations where our old perceptions simply weren't vast enough and had to be quickly discarded. We kept making adjustments to our attitudes and shifted our vantage points and each time we did so, it felt much truer.

At times, the Scattered Surf and heightened mental activity made it nearly impossible to get anything done. We were so engrossed with our mental gymnastics that there was little energy to focus on the tasks at hand. And even if we could get things done, it was more on the level of automatic pilot, without our full attention.

Then during the final days of April, the Winds of Change came in with a big Whoosh--- adding elements of the New, propelling us out of our old situations and thrusting us into the pivotal month of May.

May is an emergence and changeover month. It's a powerful bridge month of changing over from one set of circumstances to a totally new one. It's as if there was our pre-May life with one set of criteria and our post-May life in which many elements in our lives have visibly changed. It's the key turning point for the entire year; one in which we enter from one landscape or vantage point and exit into a totally new set of circumstances.

It reminds me of Merlin's Cave at Tintagel in Cornwall, England. Most of the time, the entrance to this cave completely disappears. But at low tide you can enter it from the land. You can walk through the cave and exit into the sea. And standing in the blackness of the middle of the cave, you can't see anything, but yourself. Then, if you wish, you can start walking forward until you encounter the light again. Depending on which direction you chose, you will arrive at one of two totally different worlds-- the vastness of the ocean or the ruins of King Arthur's castle, simply by shifting your vantage point.

May is going to be like arriving from the sea to emerge onto the land or like walking into the cave to leap into the ocean. The shifts are going to be that dramatic. Of course, this is actually going to take several months to fully accomplish. It won't be until August or so that we are finally getting settled in our new positionings.

But May is going to be the month when our new direction becomes clear and we can really start walking away from the old status quo and letting go of our previous endeavors. Suddenly, we will see the light at the end of the tunnel and start walking directly towards it over the bridge of May. We will finally know where we are going.


For the past several months, many of us have been consciously dismantling our beings. This process is similar to gutting the inside of a building. Keeping the outer structure somewhat intact while removing all the internal walls (conditionings and limitations), so that the inside can be re-formed in an entirely new configuration.

During the dismantling process, we have not wanted much social interaction; everything was too tender and unformed. Scaffolding was placed on the outside of our beings so we could feel somewhat protected during this profound inner transformation. We also let go of much unnecessary outer activity to keep our focus on the task at hand.

Towards the end of May, we are going to remove the scaffolding and emerge greatly realigned. Again, these won't be the final results, but the new patterning will definitely be visible and to our liking.


We have also been dealing with the element of judgment. Judgment is playing itself out heavily on the planet during this time. There is much judgment being thrown about on the world, political scene. "This is a good country." "That is a bad country." "These people are enemies." "These people are friends." "You are either with us or against us." "This is a good religion; that's a bad one."

There are the numerous judgment and assumptions which others make about us. "That's a good thing you are doing." "That's not good." "Oh, you're wrong about this."

There are also the judgment we constantly make about others which are much the same as those which people put on us.

And then, there are the judgment we make about ourselves. These are possibly the most destructive ones.

All judgment are rather counterproductive in our process of stepping into greater Oneness. They emanate from a place of separation and tend to lock the object being judged into a box from which they are not allowed to emerge. Judgment are different from perceptions because perceptions acknowledge that they are coming from a particular vantage point. Judgment tend to be thrown out with a "That's the way it is!" "This is the only truth!" attitude.

Once something is judged and labeled "such and such", then it's like sticking it into concrete. "That's how it is and nothing will change it." Or "That's how you are and you have no possibility to become anything different."

And if what we really want is for these elements to change, by our judgment we are actually condemning them to not change.

But all is not lost. We are all capable of living in a Judgment Free Zone and it would be helpful if we can get there soon. Here are some powerful antidotes to judgment:

Compassion is the ability to be aware of the many elements at play in any given situation and to allow our perceptions to become vaster so they can encompass the bigger picture of what is really happening. It's being able to understand that everyone is doing their best with whatever they have in each moment. Yes, sometimes our best is pretty dismal and sometimes we are deluded, but that's just how it is here on Earth at this time. It's all part of the great human experiment.

For example: Say we are in a restaurant and the waitress is really unfriendly or inefficient. It's easy to judge that they are a terrible waiter, to get impatient with them and leave a really small tip. But how informed was our judgment? Perhaps, the waitress just broke up with her boyfriend or was up all night with a sick child? How do we really know what's beyond the outer appearances?

Maybe someone is judging us or maybe we are judging someone for being a mess when what they (we) are actually doing is dismantling our being which takes a lot of courage. It's so easy to look at outer appearances and make our judgment call. And it makes us feel so superior. But this isn't going to set us free from duality and it's not going to move us deeper into the One Being.

Another antidote to judgment is the realization that "Nothing Is Set In Stone", "Nothing Is Impervious To Change". Any situation can get unstuck in an instant. Any misguided being can have a life changing revelation. The Winds of Change can intensify and blow anything away.

The third antidote for judgment is to see that Nothing Is Separate from the One. Even the most dismal and negative situations contain powerful opportunities for transformation. Once we allow ourselves a vaster vantage point, we will be freed from our need to label and judge.

Yet another effective antidote is the knowing that "Nothing Is As It Appears To Be". If we can't rely on the veracity of outer appearances, then how can we make a true judgment?

It's important that we become extremely aware of judgment so that when they are flying around us, we can discern their presence and not mistake them for the truth. And it's important that we catch ourselves before we start joining the crowd and throw our Judgment out there.


For several months now, we have been presented with some tantalizing opportunities which have been glimmering before us. Instead of leaping into these new opportunities, we have walked slowly in their direction, only to discover them disappearing before our very eyes like mirages. This has helped us adopt a "Wait and See" attitude. We've learned to wait and see if they are really going to happen before we get too excited, and most of the time they haven't happened.

It's been a good practice in patience and discernment. We've been able to take our time and figure out if the new opportunities are something which we really want to do. It's also helped us develop a stance of openness. We are very open to change, but not so desperate that we have to leap into every opportunity which comes along.

Well guess what??? In May, some of the opportunities which enter our lives are actually going to be solid ones, ones which make us quite happy to pursue. And they are going to be successful.

It's important to continually remember that Anything Can Happen and to stay open to the Unexpected because the Unexpected is going to make its presence felt, particularly during the second half of the month. And one of our prime directives is to get into our new positionings and start consciously setting up a unified field of Oneness.

As the month of May progresses, the Winds of Change will speed up and intensify. There will definitely be too much to do, too much happening. This is exactly when we need to move into utilizing a newfound Zen-like mastery of bringing simplicity into the midst of intense complexity.

By the end of the month, the energies of May speed up to blast us into major breakthroughs.

We can choose to let go of fear and replace it with Oneness.
Fear is an excretion of duality and separation. When we consciously inhabit our One Being, we are living in the Greater Reality where fear cannot exist.

We don't need to compromise our Integrity.
Our integrity is one of the foundation stones of our beings. If it's full of holes or cracks, then everything which is built on top of it is flawed. It's essential that we continue to strengthen and refine our integrity.

Don't Take Things Personally!
Please remember that many of us are experiencing similar things. It's not just happening to you. These are undeniably strange times. We must all constantly LOOK LARGER and see what is really going on.

Dive Deep & Discover Who You Are:
This is the time to get back in touch with our real Selves. To ask ourselves many questions such as, "Who am I?", "What makes me happy?" "What work do I really want to be doing?" & "How can I create the kind of life that I really want?"

Let Go & Become Freer:
Let go of all unnecessary activities, friendships and clutter. Strip everything down to what really resonates with your Core Being. Each time that we release something which has become weighty, we become lighter and freer.

Stay Positive By Remembering WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON:
We don't need to fear change. Yes, it is powerful and often totally beyond our control. Try to see change as exciting and as a renewal. When our old foundations crumble, it's time to build new ones.

Watch Out For Occasional Sinkholes :
Sinkholes are places where the ground suddenly sinks underneath our feet. Without warning, we find ourselves in a deep pit. When this happens, it's easy to get discouraged and depressed. However, this condition is only temporary. Be like water and keep your love flowing. Soon the sinkhole will fill up and you will be released.

Find Effective Ways To Deal With Stress:
When things get intense around us, it's easy to lose it and become stressed out. It's important that we find ways to deal with stress: Try hot baths, exercise, long walks, meditation, swimming, dancing, massage, gardening, spending the day in bed. Whatever it takes. Just be aware when your stress levels are rising and take immediate action.

Don't Buy Into Duality:
There are no "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys". There are no "Good Countries" & "Bad Countries". There are no "Good Religions" & "Bad Religions". There is only the One!

Continually Look Beyond Outer Appearances:
Nothing is as it appears to be. Step out of any residue of fear or anger and take a good, clear look at what is really happening. Don't take anyone's word on what is happening. Don't blindly follow authority figures. Figure it out for yourself from a place of vastness and all encompassing Love.

Strengthen Your Compassion:
There is simply not enough compassion on the Earth at this time. Many of us are feeling assaulted by the energies of anger and fear. It's a challenging time with duality running amok. This is exactly when compassion is most needed. Consciously become an embodiment of compassion. Be like the Sun which has no personal favorites and extend your compassion to all things equally.

Rerouting Opportunities Abound:
Whenever there are blockages or things don't happen quite as you would like them to, simply understand that things are being rerouted to bring them into alignment with the state of RIGHT TIME, RIGHT PLACE.

When New Doorways Open, Leap!... Then Leap Again:
There is no time to sit and ponder whether we should take these new opportunities which are being presented to us. If it feels right, do it. Leap! And then Leap Again!

Don't Try To Hold On To The Elements Which Are Going Out Of Our Lives:
Many people and situations are going to be leaving our lives. The resonance is shifting dramatically, making this a natural occurrence. Let go gracefully and wish them well.

Emptiness Is Good:
If you feel empty, embrace that feeling. It's a good thing and something which all of us experience when huge chunks of our old ways of being and doing things leaves our lives. This is a pregnant emptiness, a sacred place where we await the birth of the New.

Spend Time Each Day Embodying Your Vastness, Showering The Earth And All Its Inhabitants With Love:

Inhabit Our One Being At All Times:
As we consciously live in our One being, we nourish and strengthen the resonance of Oneness throughout the world.


We are creating the templates for our future now!

Enjoy this wild ride into the New.

Let's fearlessly love with our whole beings!

Be constantly open to the unexpected!

BE REAL, no matter what!
