So, 2015 is where there’s a shift on a very deep global level. Guess what? New stock options in the universe. 2015 is really about not allowing or becoming steeped in very old behaviors and emotions. Even though the economy is going to be starting to crumble, you’re going to see opportunities – there’s almost like the beginning of life at the end of the tunnel. You’re going to get a sense of – you know what, the world is going through change.

If I were to say to you - courage - what does that actually mean to you? There is psychological or intellectual courage; but courage really, truly, derives from a quality of the soul. It is a virtue of the soul. We look at courage as an intellectual experience. When we bypass the personality and truly surrender, the one thing we count on - which is our intellect, intelligence, decision-making, judgment - and we put that aside, we allow the soul. The soul runs OVER with courage. That’s all the soul knows. The soul does not say - gee, you know, I’m really scared, or I’m really afraid or constipated emotionally. Courage is a natural state of the soul. The mind is very uncomfortable with uncertainty, but the soul loves it. So imagine that! We are more comfortable being in control and the soul is quite the opposite. The soul says let’s see what interpretation today brings. When we have courage and we permit uncertainty to exist, Consciousness is born. Every day, in all of your uncertainty, there’s Consciousness.

If you can create tapestries of emotions or experience – when somebody says I want to be happy; happiness isn’t something you get, it’s something you earn. Every time you’re happy, remind yourself. That’s one tapestry. The next time you’re really happy again, bring these two tapestries together. And the next time, until you create a whole blanket, a quilt, then you have joy on a regular basis. The part of your being that you’re beginning to dive into is a complete blank canvas. That black void; it’s a room of complete darkness. In reality the room is not dark, but that’s how your mind perceives it so we’d overlook it. When you are experiencing this moment of connection, silence, or knowing you are in the vast void, that is one tapestry, one square.

This year is very interesting, particularly what we’re moving toward, because we’re no longer coming from a place of just pure intellect. We’re feeling – feeling our way into a new experience. We’re not just having an intellectual thought.

As individuals you were mainly used to having thoughts, then you learned a lot about emotions and realizing that emotions don’t dictate who you really are, and now you are basically coming from a sense of feeling. You are feeling your way through; you’re feeling what you’re sensing. You’re being very authentic, very sincere, and very genuine to your relationship with God.

When Consciousness is born, atoms are increased. An atom is literally your connection to the whole universe. So the human part of me says I need to know the answer, and the spirit part of me waits until there is a sense of what I’m going to do. That is literally because I’m one with the universe. The atoms and my soul actually travel together. Atoms are what are in the universe. But an atom also brings you an awareness. If you look at somebody like the Dalai Lama, why does he have so many atoms? It’s because he becomes the universe.
