why “Occupy” is important and spiritually-correct

Dear friends,

I’ve been thinking how to express that the Occupy movement is not only necessary, but inevitable. This is a test—for me a writer, as a thinker, as a spiritual warrior. As well as Occupy is a test for the moral and social fabric of humanity. I hope I can put into words what has been brewing deep in my heart. Some of you won’t agree, and that’s all right. But a blog is where we get to share our Truth….so here goes!

Yes, we are in the midst of a consciousness shift for the entire world, that’s for certain! It’s no longer just pie-in-the-sky hoping that one day our world will change from the over-materialistic, consumer-oriented one I was born into, into a world where people are focused on the bigger picture of what’s available in our human experience. And to me that is decidedly the spiritual experience.

Now, i know a lot of Occupy people are shouting about capitalism being evil, and corporations this and banking executives that … but beneath their revolutionary rhetoric i hear the main theme of their encampments, shouts, whispers, staying power, and unfortunately, some violence … as being the collective demand for a more human life. A life lived from the Heart, not the pocketbook or bank account. A new society in which its true value, and responsibility, rests with achievements completely different than what today’s world is all about. The New Order calls for (if I’m understanding the collective cry) local, state, and global unity and cohesiveness rather than the continuation of separation and class differentiation of any kind. Why is this a not only a logical demand but a necessary one? That’s an easy answer for me, since i’ve had to deal with the same issues in my personal quest.

Because when we are not spiritualized we are stuck in the muck, kept back, suffer, and inevitably, die without experiencing our true potential. The human race needs to embrace a mass spiritualization of its ideals, it’s that simple. We need to embrace the “Bigger Picture” rather than keep doing the old ways, which just don’t work anymore. And I’ll explain why I think so earnestly about the need for humanity’s spiritualization.

When a human turns their thinking, and starts operating differently, focusing their thoughts, actions, and power to a place of compassion for other beings, coming from their Big Heart instead of the Individual Head they’ve been programmed to fill with wanting-more: more power, more things, more more more, proving themselves “all right,” keeping-up with others, and worse, abiding by the ridiculous standards imposed by our lack-of-Big Heart society moderns have achieved — there’s no real satisfaction at the end of the day, at the end of one’s life either, in having lived a life filled with any meaningful satisfaction.

The only real satisfaction in life is when we realize that we are One. Everything that happens to one of us, happens to all of us. It’s that simple. If a person doesn’t achieve this perception of what “life” is all about … they’ve missed something. And collectively, if a society doesn’t operate from those parameters, it is less than what it could be. I would not go so far as to call it fascist, I’m not a rabid revolutionary. But I would say that living In Spirit is the only way to go, and that’s coming from a person who was NOT that to begin with.

So yes, the Occupy folks have my blessings. I think of them as I would a disgruntled teenager who is stressed from restrictions seen unnecessary and unfair and instead of becoming a professional lawyer, speaker, or leader, the teenager stomps, cries, demands, and confronts — oftentimes irrationally. Calling capitalism “fascism” is extreme, but hey! that’s what an not-yet-grounded In Spirit person would call a world in which what you own is more important that how you feel connected to the entire Universe

You see, there is a more serious, and very real future looming for us that no one even speaks about at Occupy places.

I’ve had a taste of this little-recognized reality of our future because, for whatever reason, I’ve been shown. I won’t go into the details here because you’ll all think i’m totally cracked, but let’s just say … I’ve been given proof that we are not alone here on this spinning blue ball in space. It’s been clearly demonstrated to me, and witnessed by two others, that we humans are being watched. Large numbers of “watchers” are aware of our petty little earthliness. And if we don’t get our act together and rid the world of ridiculous petty bickering, eliminate all nuclear possibilities of global devastation — well, as James Lovelock puts it in his Gaia Theory (paraphrased) … after we humans are destroyed by our own violent, stupidity and devices, the Earth will still continue to thrive, and repair its ecological damage — in time. We’re nothing more than renters, my dear Ones, akin to an infestation of parasites, we humans. We’re occupying a huge living body, collectively, and its called Mother Earth, Gaia. Nothing will stop our planet from surviving, even if we don’t.

In other words, we’re expendable. If the planet is to survive, just like a dog with fleas, the parasites must be eliminated. UNLESS, we get with the New Order and begin to transform our world and help in whatever way we can, little tiny act, change by change, to spiritualize our world, our human family.

So the Occupy movement is necessary. people need to hear that it’s time to WAKE UP!

The spiritualization of our planet has begun, and I’m one of those who communicate about this necessity, proudly dedicating my creative efforts as a writer and artist, to help others relax, let go of the old concept that MORE is better, and invite the higher, more realistic identification that All is ONE into their thus far, limited and self-destructing perceptions.

I write this today, Nov. 5, 2011 because there is an Occupy demonstration planned in my town square, tiny St. Augustine, Florida. I see my role as a person who can help to define and disseminate the information being shouted about by others. I’m a believer and supported of Global Change, the beginning of humanity’s spiritualization. We must transform small mindedness to encompass the Universal picture, because Earth is only one among many worlds, trust me. The science will catch us someday. What I saw, I saw, as well as my two friends who accompanied me that night, surf fishing off the coast of Massachusetts in the 70s. The selfishness of each country, each corporation, or person,  thinking they have all the answers would quickly — overnight! — change, if anyone witnessed what we witnessed.  We are not alone, my friends. Let’s get our act together before it’s too late.

Even if you find what I’ve shared hard to swallow, even if you don’t believe in other worlds safeguarding the possibility of what humanity could possibly do to disrupt the harmony of the Universe—it’s much more fun to live from your Big Heart than from your puny little “personal head.” Try it! Learn to meditate. Turn off your thinking and go within. All the answers are waiting to be discovered, right within your own Big Heart.

Please share this and let me hear what you think. I’m revealing deeply held personal beliefs here. Even if only one person “gets it” i’ll have not lived in vain.

in the Light,

your pal, lordflea

We are the Microcosm of the Macrocosm

Over and over I’ve seen and witnessed—and many others have as well, with our own eyes, ears, and mental capacities—that life is filled with myriad instances of unexplained phenomena. It’s as if, once we become awakened to this other realm of perception, a caption becomes visible when a stunningly realistic, panoramic snapshot of Life on Earth is shown to us, and we can then see it has, all along, clearly read … things are not what they appear to be.

There’s more to life than our physical surroundings, our bodies, and what our sense of sight, hearing, smell, touch, and linear-rational thinking can show us. In Maya’s Book of Change we will discuss what our higher perceptions make known to us, we who choose, and are open to perceive, ether little by little, or wham! right away—in one huge epiphany of awareness—like a billboard message in a meditation session.

Usually, for most of us, the door opens to the other side of human perceptions when death lingers close by. Then, the obscured but completely understandable is revealed, when otherwise it’s veiled by incomprehension, doubt, fear. This is what happened in my own life. My awareness of these truths presented here, were opened at the time when I comforted my father at his death, twenty-seven years ago.

Why wait? Dwell on these life-altering matters right here, right now! Your present life will expand as a result.

Life is a Mystery. We are all interconnected in one huge, boundless, cosmic fashion that, to me, is best described by how Chief Seattle, the 19th Century Suquamish Native America leader succinctly recorded for all posterity, when he described the Mystery with these words:

“We are all a part of the Web of Life. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one strand within it. All things are bound together.”


We are, each one of us, connected to an indescribable source of intelligence and energy. When we trust the Big It, as I affectionately call the Mystery, and learn to work with this It that is our very Source, our Life Force, our … God, to some (another name, in other words) … our lives become what they were intended to be: boundless in possibilities, radiant with health, wealth, and filled with love of our higher Self, our lower self too, as well as all other beings and objects. Even if bad things happen, which they will, we will not be destroyed by them if we commit to live In Spirit. This is what I mean when I say “I believe in It, the Mystery of Life, the Web.



When we stop trying to overly control ourselves or others, when we can say No to being controlled by others, the opportunity arises for each of us to spiritualize our lives. Take that step now. Join me and countless others already committed to higher consciousness. Believe that Love-for-All is the state of living consciously and compassionately: This is how we live In Spirit.

It is our birthright to experience true happiness, no matter what’s happening, right here and right now. No matter what life’s bumpy road has brought us or what’s to come, we can accept everything and any one thing with utter peace,  and yes, we can feel fulfilled. We can embrace our being a magnificent part of the Web and enjoy this sometimes erratic, sometimes ecstatic Dance of Life. We can learn to joyously move with its syncopated rhythm, not resist or feel powerless in face of life’s foibles, or crushed by unforeseen steps life throws us along its unknown path, which it will. Again, we are part of Nature and Nature is part of us. We are microcosms of the macrocosm. Nature is, logically, the macrocosm. We are the microcosm. But both parts: macro and micro, are the same. We all operate from the hub of It being the Source, the unifying denominator of all existence.

We can enjoy every nuance of the Dance, every single moment of It, even when we face our own death.


This book is dedicated to my pal Maya and all who wish to experience life to its fullest, highest potential, in all ways possible.
