Identity Addiction

We are addicted to our identities, whatever they may be, and not just our identities, but the identity of all that surrounds us. How do you identify? Does this change when you are with certain people? I know mine certainly does. I remember my days working at the Gender Identity Center and meeting folks who identify as gender fluid. Perhaps this fits me. Perhaps it goes further to include not just identity, but the environment itself. Consider how you feel when you hike in nature alone. Do you feel a connection to the animals and plants? How about if you attend a large group event, say a ball game or concert? Why do we even hike in the woods or go to a big event? Could it be for the identity we borrow there? Don’t you ever tire of your identity? Isn’t it nice to try on someone else’s? Perhaps this is why hero’s are so adored! Or someone famous. Or the celebrated artist we wish we could be like.

Perhaps my initial phrase is exactly the opposite of true and we are actually afraid of our identity. We naturally fear our essence, our natural selves so we hide it by being what we are not. We project this unwanted identity on others. “Oh, that person was so mean” or “what a jerk that person was to me.” Choose an identity and vilify it! These identities fall into the list of individual rights as well. The right to not be discriminated against on the grounds the “other” is not like me. Everyone deserves respect, unless they violate my identity!!

The point here is as we grow Spiritually the phrase, “we are one” takes on new meaning. A literal meaning and it becomes difficult to identify with any one at all. I identify with everyone these days. An exercise I learned from the Conversations with God series by Neale Donald Walsch comes to mind. Go for a walk and randomly point at whatever you encounter and say, “I am that”. Do this regularly and observe how you relate to the world. If I am that trash on the sidewalk, perhaps it is not trash at all or perhaps it just reflects how I feel about myself. The bird has an entirely different view of the world than say a mouse or wildflower. With Oneness we realize how connected life is and how separated we can feel at times. This separation is false. It is Fear, false-evidence-appearing-real.

So in your everyday dealings with the world, ask yourself, who am I, really? If I have a job as a doctor or custodian is this who I really am? Are you the teacher or the student? The child or the parent? Couldn’t you be both? I am a Spiritual being having a human experience, but isn’t even that limiting? God is all there is and I am this, I am. No judgment required! Its all good, for its all God. No identity necessary!

String Theory

Life is a memory for all possibilities have already occurred. This is the nature of time and space! This is the power of God. The “I” you identify with is traveling down a string of possibility as you live and dream vibrations are released vibrating the strings. Each decision shifts you to a different string, if focused and harmonized each thought does too. Your life is a bundle of strings and with enough harmonized focused energy you can move to a different bundle, though this is exceedingly rare. Thoughts are repeated over and over thus holding you to your string or at least your bundle. Family and friends are there too, and though they can change paths as well this often does not happen. A family who dines together stays together rings true here, both metaphysically and literally.

Know the people in your life are not individuals per se, but archetypes which you attract through your thoughts.  Our friends and family too, exist as catalyst, potentiation, and significator. Read this book (An-Archetype-Workbook.PDF) for a better understanding of archetypes.  They say the bible is written in metaphor and perhaps our very lives are too!  Remember there is no “out there” out there.

Meditation opens up the path for review. Silence is the window! Be with yourself and feel gratitude! There is no blame for being on a particular string other than your own thoughts, choices, and actions. Make peace with this. Its all good, for we each are exactly where we need to be. Eventually we will know all the strings like a master violinist! Enjoy the ride so to speak. We are not here to control the path but to observe the relationships and know our contribution in what we call life. I am not part of it, I am all of it. I am not this person I think of (your name). I am all of it. I am not my family, my friends, my pets, my anything… I am ALL OF IT. Re-membering. I am not even God, because our view and understanding of God is too limiting. Let go …

Identity Trap

So you think you know who you are! Question this reality! Just how do you identify? Who are YOU? I know who I am! I am “I”. You are “you”. It’s as simple as that… or is it? What if there is no you or me and just us? We are One. So this means we are murders and rapists; saints and priest? NO. The dream of separation we call this world is just that, a dream. We have no body and there is no thing out there. Our mind projects all that we experience. The ego aspect believes it is separate from Source (God) and thus all the horrors (manifested guilt) this world appears to offer. Projection makes perception. The choice which presents itself is simple; are we ego or are we Source (God)? ACIM teaches, Ideas leave not their source, so I am just as God created me. Ego believes its own illusions, and it must. Yes, the choice remains to identify with Ego or with God. What you see tells you what you have chosen. So if you see God everywhere, this is your choice. If you see Ego (fear, separation, pain, etc.) then you have chosen this. You can choose again! In fact you must, choose over and over…

Here is a blog I really enjoy and feel explains this Identity conundrum quite well. https://www.voiceforgod.net/blogs/acim-blog/you-have-a-problem-of-identity-you-think-the-ego-is-your-self

Identity is a trap, a tree is not a tree, a baby does not exist but in the mind, death is a symbol of ego. Life (Love, God, Source, Infinite Intelligence) is eternal, unchanging, and all there really is. To truly identify with reality, one must let go of all “false gods”. Perhaps you remember the commandment to “put no other Gods before me”. This life here on Earth is an other God! To die is to repeat this illusion. Death supports the ego illusion. We don’t die, our identity does! So identify with Reality… God is all there is.

“The Son of God is my Identity – ACIM Lesson 252

1. My Self is holy beyond all the thoughts of holiness of which I now conceive. Its shimmering and perfect purity is far more brilliant than is any light that I have ever looked upon. Its love is limitless, with an intensity that holds all things within it, in the calm of quiet certainty. Its strength comes not from burning impulses which move the world, but from the boundless Love of God Himself. How far beyond this world my Self must be, and yet how near to me and close to God!

2. Father, You know my true Identity. Reveal It now to me who am Your Son, that I may waken to the truth in You, and know that Heaven is restored to me.”

Blessings on our Journey of Love!

The New Age of Aquarius – Part IV

We can all say technology has become a big part of our lives, except a few holdouts of course. My life would not be the same without it. My career in Radiology was made possible by technology. Cutting edge technology in fact and I loved it! It was a nice blend of technology and human caring which fit my life’s journey quite well. Why? Because we are moving into the Age of Aquarius!

As we move even further down this path technology will be integrated into every aspect of our lives sometimes without us even noticing. CCTV, AI monitoring devices, Environmental controls, and Smart devices are to name just a few. Technology and Aquarius go hand in hand, which is the opposite of Pisces. So the dramatic differences between these two ages is quite apparent. By embracing technology one is embracing the AOA.

Equity and Equality are other characteristics of the AOA that are obvious now days. After WWII, society focused on living and rebuilding. In the 60’s people got very loud in this focus and it has been growing ever since. Remembering that all growth ebbs and flows. Gender equality is now the accepted norm. It has taken a century or more and the Piscean ideals are holding on with a vengeance, though they fight a loosing battle. Equity and Equality must win, this is the AOA!

One of the purposes of this blog is to bring the inevitable to light. To hasten our progress. To give you time to adjust and accept. So embrace change and change will hug you back. What you focus on grows. It is not about right or wrong, good or bad. It is about the larger picture. We are the observers here and this is the way it should be. No need to save the world, because we don’t need saving. All is as it needs to be.

The New Age of Aquarius – Part III

Androgyny and Bisexualism are characteristics of the Age of Aquarius (AOA) which are manifesting around the world. They are a function of emerging self awareness. Mankind is representative of 3rd density, the discovery and expression of self awareness. As this awareness grows androgyny and bisexualism will as well, as an expression of self love. It is a process of Oneness to love an ‘other’ as the self. The AOA moves us into 4th density and the age of love. “20.36 Questioner: You use the same nomenclature for fourth-density negative as for fourth-density positive. Both are called the dimension of love or understanding. Is this correct? Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. Love and understanding, whether it be of self or of self towards other-self, is one.” (Lawofone.info)

16.50 Questioner: Thank you. Is it possible for you to give a small description of the conditions [in] fourth density? Ra: I am Ra. We ask you to consider as we speak that there are no words for positively describing fourth density. We can only explain what is not and approximate what is. Beyond fourth density our ability grows more limited still until we become without words. That which fourth density is not: it is not of words, unless chosen. It is not of heavy chemical vehicles for body complex activities. It is not of disharmony within self. It is not of disharmony within peoples. It is not within limits of possibility to cause disharmony in any way. Approximations of positive statements: it is a plane of a type of bipedal vehicle which is much denser and more full of life; it is a plane wherein one is aware of the thoughts of other-selves; it is a plane where one is aware of the vibrations of other-selves; it is a plane of compassion and understanding of the sorrows of third density; it is a plane striving towards wisdom or light; it is a plane wherein individual differences are pronounced although automatically harmonized by group consensus.” (Lawofone.info)

Love and understanding facilitates a broad array of human expression, though as we truly grasp the meaning of Oneness, Androgyny and Bisexualism take their place in the greater expression of AOA. Love takes many forms and in the aware 4th density individual it is found everywhere and in every encounter. As we see the other, we see ourselves, thus androgyny takes our perceptions to the level of Love. Projection makes perception. Understand this and we are on our way to AOA and beyond.

The New Age of Aquarius – Part II

Interdependence means just that, we are each dependent on one another. In the new Age of Aquarius (AOA) this dependence will shift into independence while maintaining this interdependence in the form of brotherhood. We understand now that “we are One” and knowledge is key in the new AOA. We have already seen significant shifts toward independence with the likes of Rosa Parks and Martin Luther King has shown us what Brotherhood means.

“The Age of Aquarius is the Age of Freedom, Technology (especially electricity), and the Water Bearer.” (http://www.2012-spiritual-growth-prophecies.com/age-of-aquarius.html)

We have all seen the explosion of technology in the last several hundred years, just imagine what we are in store for! Electricity is coming into its own as renewable energy is now cheaper than fossil fuels and electric devises are everywhere. The electric car is poised to replace gasoline cars by 2050. In Europe this is already taking place. The USA seems to be last in these sort of changes, just take the conversion to the metric system. It still is not official, though science, trade, and product imports are changing us anyway. Freedom fighters will no longer be necessary since Freedom, Unity, and Equality are inherent in the AOA. These changes are not negotiable because they are larger than we are. Just like you cannot expect an animal to forgo its nature, predators will hunt, the ages will be as they are and so will all who are within them. This is why it is vital to embrace these changes and make the most of them. Go with the flow! Know that life is expanding and improving… constantly. Do your research, learn how to learn, and the future will be amazing! The water bearer is a symbol of prosperity. Water brings life! Knowledge in the AOA is not for control or gaining power, but in order to grow and contribute to the greater good. I for one am very excited for the AOA and I pray you will be too.

The New Age of Aquarius

While I have written about this before it is becoming more important every day. There is no specific date for when this age begins and from what I have been able to ascertain the date is around 2060. This gives us 40 years. The other detail that makes it important is the overlap between ages can be as much as 200 years. The changes are gradual at first and the closer we get to the Age of Aquarius the more drastic and unpredictable the changes will be. Some would argue the New Age of Aquarius began with the industrial age, though I would say more like the Digital Age. I base this on the characteristics of Aquarius: Interdependence with independence, cooperation, androgyny, bisexualism, technology, and equity. The 20th century has seen the rise of all these characteristics and more. Read my blog for more details and links.

My studies of Spiritual materials has lead me to know we are ready for these changes. Those who refuse to embrace Aquarius will simply not move forward and their next lifetime will be back on a world where Picean principles rule. The Law of One (LOO) calls it 3rd density. I highly recommend reading the 5 Law of One books if you wish to know more at this website. Aquarius represents 4th Density in the LOO. According to these teachings the Earth or Gaia has passed into the Age of Aquarius or 4th Density already (2011). It all has to do with the path our planet is taking through the cosmos. Earth has entered an area of higher frequency or energy. As all change does, this creates turmoil. There are plenty of earthly and human signs this is true. For example, global warming, an increase in the Schumann Frequency, and the wars around the world that just don’t seem to ever stop. Resistance creates friction and heat, so my prediction is war will stop, at least on a global level by 2060. Aquarius is about interdependence while maintaining personal independence and loving cooperation, while Pisces is about war and control. As we move into the New Age, resistance will become less and less. If you wish, you could say the turmoil will clear the way for the New Age much like the Biblical Floods did. (Of course, what you believe is up to you, I am simply sharing my own personal wisdom) In the coming blogs I will explore the characteristics of the Age of Aquarius and how we each can prepare for this transition.

The Art of Appreciation revisited

This blog is a reprint from 2011 and is part of the Love Based Economy series and really gets to the core of how it all works. The best way to explore the expansive Transitions Blog (over 495 posts) is to use the category section lower right of the home page. It is also possible to search using keywords. It could be said that Appreciation is the most important aspect of the Love Based Economy. Love it and it will Love you back. It really is that simple.

They way this works is to replace the word it with anything and everything in your life/economy. Like this – Love your enemy and your enemy will Love you back. Or Love a dog and it will love you back. Love broccoli and it will Love you back. Love your wife and she will Love you back. Love your home and it will Love you back. This works with anything that you insert, and the point is to insert it all!

The logical question is how does it work? I love my wife but she does not love me back. The answer is again very simple, but not necessarily easy. If you are Loving something or someone and you are not experiencing the Love in return it means that you are not coming from Spiritual Love, but maybe ego love. Spiritual Love is that which makes up your soul, it is your core, it is unlimited, unconditional, and un-attachable. You cannot lose it – only give it way, you cannot limit it – only yourself, you cannot run out of it, ever! The ego version of love is the opposite of this. The remedy is to Love “it, them” some more!

So now you know what Love is, the goal is to share it or give it away, for when you do this you will have more! Like a basket of yarn that never ends, the more you pull from your soul the more you have! Since you have more than you need, you might as well give some away.

Going back to the key phrase, Love it and it will Love you back, the way to make it all work is to apply it consciously. The method of Love is to simply focus your attention on it. Invest yourself in it. For example, Love your dog and your dog will Love you back. Put your attention on your dog, give of your time, effort, and things that add value. Since appreciation is the act of adding value. The very word means increasing value! So to Love something or someone, appreciate them, make them valuable!

There are million+ ways to Love and objects to Love. In fact the options are endless. You have no doubt spent most of your life learning what is not Love. This is what this (ego) world is all about. The ego world is self centered, artificially created, and important to no one except you. Without Love, this world is meaningless! Without you, it is meaningless. Because you are the very Love you give! You are what is important, not in a self centered way, but as a vehicle of Spiritual Love! We each share this potential and the more we realize it the greater its value.

Who are you?

Identity exists in the mind and is seen in the people, places, and things we encounter throughout our day. How important is identity? Does it change? Are you still the same person you were a decade ago? These are questions which I play with constantly. It makes me feel good to question reality, to question my identity, and to question existence itself. Thus I sit here this evening doing just this. Who am I? Who am I in relation to you? Who are you?

Alas, the answer is complicated to say the least. Or is it? I feel like I have answers on a Spiritual level or an Ultimate Reality level, however this material world baffles me. It sure seems real even though I have been assured that it is not. The teachings in A Course in Miracles maintain this world is a projection of my mind, which is not really “my” mind but Ego Mind. Ego is the interface of the construct we call “reality”. We have been given powerful tools for interacting here, 5 physical senses, 6 mental tools, and umpteen beliefs upon which we base our actions.  Just like a TV set, the Ego is not who I am.  Thru ACIM my understanding has deepened greatly. I see so much clearer these days, except when it comes to daily life. It really all comes down to identity. How I identify determines my role to play, what I should do, and where I should go. The thing is, I have long established beliefs that conflict with my current identity. Which, by the way, was repressed for over 30 years. I can’t explain it, other than to say this is my forgiveness lesson. I must accept it and learn to live it. Doesn’t feel like I am doing very well with this. Though my life situation at the moment is very good. I have all that I need, I feel content, and well taken care of. I have others to care for and this is enough. My theory is I am getting very close to the end (of illusion) and the ego fears its end, so the disharmony and misdirection has been peaked.

The answer is simple. Love is the answer, always and all ways. The trick is to remember this in the moment. I go with the flow and be the observer, judging not, while seeking divine truth all the while. A good example of this just occurred. I am listening to New Age with a Native American flair and thinking I feel so connected, yet I did a DNA test and know I have no Native American in me at all. So what if it is not in me but rather the Earth or location I am in right now. Since I live in CO, this all used to be Native land. Even where I grew up, used to be Cherokee country. So perhaps this means location informs all who live here. Nature informs Nurture. I suppose this is the function of travel. Living in Mexico or India or wherever will inform the thoughts I experience. Even the Earth is traveling though space and as we move influences shift. This all relates to the Mind, so nothing is really moving, it is just the consciousness shifting. I maintain that if we attempt to live on another planet eventually we will stop being Human and become Martians or whatever. Not that Mars exists mind you, LOL.

Evo-lution

Transness.org is the evolution of my experience as being transgender. The journey consciously began sometime in the 70’s around the time I went through puberty, though I can vaguely remember questioning my gender around the age of 4 or 5 when I played show and tell with a neighborhood girl. Why didn’t I look like that?

In the book Sex and Sexuality I share my autobiography and discuss gender and sexuality. The topic has been confusing and intriguing over the years. Reviewing my progress through identity continues to be informative and entertaining. As I sit here now looking back 50+ years later I still have not arrived at a definitive answer. I created transness.org as a way to help others and thereby help myself. Recently I have been debating on what comes next. Where do we go from here? I am happy with things for the most part. Here is what I have learned so far.

Hormones are incredibly powerful and are not to be taken lightly. Many of us are taking hormones unknowingly in the foods we eat and the chemicals we expose ourselves to. Perhaps this is what starts the questioning process. I also know our environment comes through us and not at us. It is not separate. Like the set in a play it’s all connected. Or should I say projected. So you want to be the opposite gender, then just take this hormone and voila.

Sex is fixed in this life experience. The way you are born is the way it is. I know I have said differently at several occasions. I was spouting what I was told. I now know differently, not because it is a fact, but because I have tested the hypothesis and arrived at an answer. All the spiritual teachings say the same. Physical sex cannot be changed no matter what we do to our bodies. There are no exceptions only really good illusions.

It is important to understand the difference between sex and gender. Gender is a mental construct. A perceived set of rules we live by. Gender is man made. Sex on the other hand is nature made. (notice I did not say God made, because God has nothing to do with this world) Think of your life as a story. Once upon a time, a boy was born. The story sets the stage. Another story may be written but this story is fixed. I was born male and will always be till I die and another story is written. Now we can alter the course of the story, but the stage is set.  In the early days, men played the female roles, so this is nothing new. Basic factors or laws are written that we all must follow. Study screen writing if you would like a good example of human lives in general. This tangent could fill a book and it has, however let’s get back to the topic of this blog.

Transitions Blog has 548 posts so far. That is a lot of words even if I do attempt to keep my blogs between 500-1000 words. Not to mention the 4 eBooks I have written. Has all this writing served its purpose? I will say Yes. Writing helps me process my thoughts and clarify my ideas. I recommend it to anyone attempting to understand their journey. The question that has been popping up a lot for me lately is should I remove Transness.org and just focus on OnenessMinistry.info? I had the two combined at one point, perhaps that is best? We are Spiritual Beings after all. Transgender is just one expression of being human. It is a way of relating to the world. I believe it is an evolved way of seeing life from both sides at the same time. Ultimately there is no male/female or man/woman, these are just dualistic view points. Transgender to me is between dualism and monism. It is the process of monism viewing dualism. Oneness observes dualism and knows sameness, contrary to appearances. Transgender is NOT about being on one side of the bus and moving to the other side. There are no sides. For this reason I have transitioned transness.org to the next step in evo-lution for me. Being transgender is a footnote in my life’s journey, life goes on, I am who I am. Labels make us small. They shrink us into a box and miss reality completely. How does one label “All there is”?

Refined Message

What is our purpose? I’ve been asking myself why I even keep these websites. What I should do with them if anything. So here is what I came up with. A refined Manifesto.

My purpose and lot in life is to love and accept myself and the dream I have created. There is no more sobering thought than to realize you are the source of your nightmares. All the pain you have ever felt is on you. There is no one else, not really. “All else” or “other” is a projection from mind, your mind, the only mind. Our whole sense of self is based on Ego, this is the very definition of identity. If you think you exist, then this is the Ego. It is not good or bad, it is just the filter used to experience the world around you… to Know thy self!

Sometimes this image gets blurred and we think the “Other” is who we are. On the greater levels this is true, however on this limited Ego level it is not. I am you and you are me, though the Ego exists to further refine what you and me are. Ego is separation. All in this world is separate and represents the Ego (not the personality as Freud presented, but the entire “self”). I have come to believe that gender itself is an ego construct and Transgender is a confusion of this primary construct. We are born male, female or intersex, this cannot be changed in this lifetime. Sex is simply our Identity construct, it may define our life this time around, but it is by no means fixed in reality. Gender by the way is not Sex, these aspects are separate and yet intertwined. In the Ego world, there are shades of gray or color. A rainbow represents separation of light… thus the Ego. A perfect symbol for anyone who identifies with being human, special, or different. Yes, we appear to be unique, but this is only a perception – a desire by the Ego to be special or somehow better than other. The way to work though this is presented in A Course in Miracles. I will not go into it further and leave it up to you to explore.

I will not tell anyone else what to think or what is right or wrong, because that depends on your perspective and point of view. Being Transgender is real if you think it is. It cannot be denied, as I tried for 30 yrs and it kept coming back. When you get a obsessive idea the only way to get over it is to move through it. It could be called a problem, but in reality it is just an idea. Consuming, yes. So accept it and move through it. Face it head on. Fear = false evidence appearing real. Even death is false. I have died many times or at least my Ego has. Love is real and can not be destroyed. Whatever is “killed or dies” is unreal. Know this and life becomes a Joy. By “Know” I mean no doubt whatsoever.

So, if you have the impulse to crossdress then go for it. If you wish to sleep with the same sex or deny sex all together, go for it. However, if you have the impulse to harm anyone including yourself then take a step back. Tell someone about these feelings. Talk it out and take no action. The question is what does “harm” mean? I have been over that many times. Is it harmful to Transition? Is it harmful to die? Does shattering the concept others have of you qualify as harmful? There is the simple principle of “what you do to another, you do to yourself”. So perhaps transition is just passing your own confusion off to others close to you (other self). As you see the “other” you will see yourself. There is also the principle that we learn through experience, so unless we transition no lesson is learned. Pain is inevitable, suffering is up to you. I am not responsible for your suffering, even if I am responsible for your pain. We each have free will. There are no easy answers to these questions, there are only your answers. I have answered them for myself. I invite you to explore these questions and do your best. Live life and don’t apologize! Only you can ultimately judge you, so be kind.

Discrimination and American Values

The United States of America has traditionally been mostly Christian or some variant. Though the beauty of our country is we respect all beliefs and our constitution protects our right to believe what we Will (as in power, not action). These rights go both ways though. While we have the right to our beliefs we do not have the right to force them on others. Discrimination is a sticky pickle for a very simple reason. A very basic spiritual principle that every religion teaches says “Do onto others as you would have them do on to you”. Another way to say this is “What you do to another, you do to yourself” or “What you give you receive”.

Let’s apply this to discrimination. If a person tells another don’t judge me, then they have to practice this as well if they expect the other person to comply. If someone refuses to socialize with what they perceive to be the “other” or “those who are not like them” then they are giving this “other” the right to do so also. In effect this person is creating separation, not only from the “other” but from themselves as well! By being afraid to socialize with this “other” they perpetuate the very thing they are afraid of.

In a Course in Miracles Jesus teaches us to see beyond appearances, to find the divine in everyone and in everything, not because it is really there, not because there is a separate objective reality, but because there is NOT. Everything we experience is a projection from our own mind and is intended to awaken us from our dreams of dying, from being separate. This is Unity, Oneness, Truth. So when confronted with hateful, discriminating, mean other self, know that it is your own self reflected back and forgive. Just knowing how all this works makes it so much easier to be kind, thoughtful, and loving. Everything/everyone you encounter is either a statement of Love or a cry for Love. You get to choose where you look and what you see. It’s easy if you allow it to be. Resistance is Futile, LOL. Persistence pays.

Jesus teaches that a Miracle is simply choosing Love over fear. Every day we experience miracles without even knowing it. Now you know what a Miracle life is. This is what our founding fathers intended to protect. If we take an other’s right to discriminate away then we are trapping ourselves. (Not to mention violating free will!) Let them hate you, this gives you the opportunity to forgive them and in doing so forgive yourself. It may seem counter intuitive, but it works. I have tested it. Another thing Jesus teaches us is to turn the other cheek. If someone strikes you, offer the other cheek also. I tested this and was amazed by the result. Fear disappeared and Love is all that remained.

Transgender Regret

Is it real? Do trans* individuals have regret? How can anyone know what is “real”? I have been studying this all my life. The fact is that you cannot know what works till you try it. This is why when the Standards of Care for Transgenders was first established they had a mandatory trial period. Live as a woman for 2 yrs and if this works then move on with CHT and Surgery. Yet over the years this has become less and less till now it does not exist at all. In fact the whole treatment is a recommendation only and totally relies in the judgment of the patient. While I do agree we should have final say here I also know that we are too close to see the truth.

“After de-transitioning, I know the truth: Hormones and surgery may alter appearances, but nothing changes the immutable fact of your sex.” (https://www.usatoday.com/story/opinion/voices/2019/02/11/transgender-debate-transitioning-sex-gender-column/1894076002/)

My comment on the above article: I would say I knew this going in, but would not accept it. It’s good that Walt got the therapy he needed to heal. Suffering is inevitable in this life, so have no regrets about that. At the age of 58 (transitioned at 45), I feel like gender is meaningless and sex is fixed at birth. I was warned repeatedly and yet I “had” to do it or would die. Just how I felt. I focus more on Spirituality now and less on the physical which does change. Spirit never changes and this is the rock I need. I am not my body, I am free….

“Yet, in hindsight, after transitioning from male to female and back again, I see that many important topics are ignored by such advice, placing vulnerable people at risk. Four crucial omissions are most obvious and problematic.” https://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2017/04/19080/ Read the article for these 4 valid points.

Alas the power of the mind. We have no concept of just how powerful we really are. It is our dream after all. Yes, I know now that life is but a dream so I “row, row, row”. Actually during transition I dove deeply into Spirituality, not religion mind you, but spirituality. I found ACIM (A Course In Miracles). A famous ACIM author refers to life here as “psycho-planet” and basically the course teaches that life as we know it is Ego, not ego as Freud defines it, but more like everything you experience. It is easy to understand how a transgender mindset can take hold in a world that hates you (because you hate yourself). ACIM teaches the Ego is trying to kill you, because this would prove that the Ego is real, that death is real. Jesus is teaching us just the opposite. The ego sends us on wild goose chases that end back where you started and Transgender is a perfect example of this. Instead of seeing perfection we are taught to see fault. We are sinful at birth according to Christianity. The world is based on guilt! ACIM teaches forgiveness, not because we are sinful, but because we are Not. Because we mistakenly bought into the whole delusion.

So do I regret Transitioning? Yes, and No. Deep down I knew the result before I started. It’s not about the destination, but the journey. I needed this journey. I needed to get over my fear of Love, my need for acceptance, and most of all my feelings of guilt associated with it all. Yes, I do have a very strong feminine drive, yet I was born male. Some say that is the very definition of transgender. There is nothing wrong with me though, and I know it. Gender and even physical sex is an ego mind manifestation. There are rules to life here on psycho-planet and one of them is sex is fixed. Gender is more of a mindset or concept than a reality. I actively seek the good in life (the dream) so I can awaken to the truth. God is all there is, there is no “me”; “I” is ego. Letting go of this while focusing on Holy Spirit is the way home. For more on ACIM, I recommend “Disappearance of the Universe” by Gary Renard. For more on Trans* Regret, just scour the internet. I found story after story, some ending with suicide and others with life going on. Walt Heyer is the later.

Faith Leads The Way

I started to write a blog about Faith and discovered I already had, LOL.  The point here is we all have more faith than we realize.  Perhaps my goals is to be devoted to Faith.  Not just any faith, but one that sustains us, a faith that uplifts and delivers us upon the gates of Truth.  May Infinite Intelligence fill your beingness to overflowing.  We are the Love we seek.

What is it to live without faith? Could you be living a faithful life without even knowing it? I believe most people are living in faith whether they consciously choose to or not. Over 90% of people believe in a higher power according to a recent Gallup poll so this easily translates to faithful living.

So just what is Faith? According to Dictionary.com it means:

1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another’s ability.

2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.

3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.

4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty.

5. a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith.

Number 3 means over 90% of the people have Faith! Number 4 is really general and would apply to ~99% of people as we all believe in something! (Atheism and Science are beliefs) So the proof is mounting, but then number 2 indicates we need no proof to have faith. Whatever you believe is true! For those who have been around a while having confidence or trust in another person is bound to have occurred at some point in your life and if you are a Spiritual person it is most likely a daily practice. The religious belief category is the only one which may not apply to the majority of people, although most have been there at one point or another in their lives. So you can see Faith is a part of everyone’s of life.

Making it a conscious part of your life simply takes the commitment to be aware of your practices. Practicing faith consciously is something we can all do easily. First of all look within to find your beliefs, principles, and morals. As you define them just be observant of your life – your words, behavior, and thoughts. How are they aligned with these beliefs? The more conscious you become the easier it is to align with the Faith you already have. Practice makes perfect is applicable here, however as your journey continues this becomes perfection is always present, now and forever. Faith is instinctual to one who has chosen it. Perfection resides in all things, places, and people the journey makes this perfectly clear!

What I Believe

The world happens through you not to you. It is a projection from your own mind. I believe in Karma or what comes around goes around. Said another way, “What you give, you receive”. So working from this imagine a foam upon the sea. This foam is made up of tiny bubbles and each of us is one of the bubbles. We can experience only what is within our bubble. If you think about this you’ll see what I speak of. When you look out into the world do you see yourself surrounded by a box or triangle? No. We see in circles or more accurately spheres. Just like Earth is a sphere so are we! Imagination allows us to see further, but this is not our “reality”. As we all learn early on, imagination is fantasy. It is also the tool we use to expand and move within our bubble.

Perhaps you have been told to look within and know thy self. The world outside your bubble is not you it is other self or simply other. The sea represents All there is or as many call it, God. The foam is temporary, coming and going with the tides. When our bubble breaks it rejoins the sea no worse the wear. So when I go with the flow… I take that quite literally. My bubble is mine and yours is yours, we cannot know each others bubble. This is the essence of ego mind. What I describe here is ego mind. There are two minds in a dualistic world, Ego and God or Spirit. If you wonder about the soul it is part of the ego mind, not God. The ego mind believes it is separate from God, but it is just a foam on the sea. Not separate at all. Any individual identity is of the ego, a bubble of foam. Since the Universe is a large place our bubbles can be quite large in relation to Earth or they can be as tiny as the room you occupy. It is still just a bubble. We each have a choice to make in this life. Are we the bubble or the sea? The choice arises often and the more we choose the sea the closer our experience moves in that direction. Ultimately though we all return to the sea since this is all there is, but not until we choose it (The Law of One/Free Will). The good news is we are One and Jesus (I am) has already chosen the sea.

A Boy Erased

“Jared Eamons, the son of a small-town Baptist pastor, must overcome the fallout after being outed as gay to his parents. His father and mother struggle to reconcile their love for their son with their beliefs. Fearing a loss of family, friends and community, Jared is pressured into attending a conversion therapy program. While there, Jared comes into conflict with its leader and begins his journey to finding his own voice and accepting his true self. Movie trailer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=2&v=-B71eyB_Onw “

This blog is about my take on conversion therapy and how it could work if done with some humility and humanity. I am not really reviewing the movie, though I do recommend you see it if you are the least bit interested after watching the trailer. It makes a clear statement that conversion therapy does not work and it is criminal to subject minors to it. My task is not to judge others actions or choices. My task is to see with Love. To ask, what would love do now? What is the humane thing to do?

Since I do have personal experience being Trans* my opinion comes from that perspective, though I also can see it from other perspectives, it is just one of my practiced super powers. I teach Oneness and with that said you may have some idea what I am going to say here. Love is the answer, plain and simple. The issue is most of us don’t know what that looks like. I used to ask anyone I thought may have an answer (parents, grandparents, counselors, coaches, etc.) and frankly no one did. God was the only one who had the answer. Getting answers from God is not difficult, but you do need to know what you are hearing is from God and not ego (I don’t believe in the devil or evil for that matter). ACIM (A Course in Miracles) goes into detail on how to hear the voice for God/Love, so I recommend becoming a student. The course is not for the faint of heart, it takes at least a year to get through it and probably the rest of your life to process and fully understand it. It was the best decision of my life to make the choice to follow Jesus’s teachings as put forth in ACIM.

The Bible has its wisdom, but one must really search for it. The books have been butchered by ego over the years which have left the teachings greatly watered down and in some cases are simply misleading. So I don’t fault Christian’s for not really understanding Jesus. Conversion therapy probably makes sense to them. Homosexuality is not a path to polarization as is taught in all Spiritual teachings. I know of no religion that says it a good thing. At best they teach to accept it and judge not. Our sexuality is set at birth they say and I have no argument against that. I believe now that once a person is born male or female they are always that sex, no matter what surgery or hormones they take. I had to learn this first hand; they say experience is the best teacher <G>. Gender on the other hand is another topic which I will not get into now other than to say, it is not as fixed as we are lead to believe.

So how could conversion therapy work? In the beginning of the “camp” the exercises focus on self esteem and self worth. YES!! Absolutely important. Then they say being Gay is a behavioral choice and to this I disagree, however acting on who you are is a choice. Say for instance you are attracted to young girls… acting on this thought is a choice! Masturbation is a viable alternative to molesting or taking advantage of an other. So my teaching is Just say NO to your urges and find a non-harmful release (masturbation, exercise, cold shower, etc.) rather than trying to fit into a community, be it LGBT or other. Look not for the love you seek in others. Those who seek outside themselves go without. After this they detour into labeling and shaming the self and family rather than seeking the innocence and beauty of who the individual and their family is. The answer is to accept who you are and who others identity as. This is the way… Love. It is not up to anyone else to tell you who you are, only you know this. And if you don’t know this and you may not at a young age then it is up to you to figure it out. It took me 50yrs, so don’t be in a hurry. In the end Identity is not as fixed as we are lead to believe either. It changes every time your life does. You join the military… your identity changes, you leave one church to join another… your identity changes. You have children, etc.

I believe we are all bi-sexual! Don’t tell me you have never considered same sex intimacy! Even if it was a fear. Sex by the way is not a weapon! Though many use it for power. Sex has nothing to do with Love either. I can see this blog is getting long so I will wrap this up. My eBook Sex and Sexuality has a chapter on Sex as Communication, so read this for more on Love. We all simply desire to be loved and accepted as we are; to not be judged. What you give you receive. This sums it up. The more you respect others the more respect you receive! Love comes in different forms on earth, but in heaven we are all One and Love is all there is. So this is what we all secretly desire. To be home again! Though don’t expect to find this here on psycho planet. (read Gary Renard’s books on ACIM to learn more about this)

What I have learned about Transgender in this lifetime

Transgender is defined as: A person appearing to or attempting to be a member of the opposite sex, such as a transsexual or habitual crossdresser. This is an umbrella term often used to include the entire community of individuals who cross gender boundaries on a consistent basis. This is the definition I use on my website and has variations depending on who is being asked. Bottom line each individual has their own identity and defines this word slightly differently. The bottom line is fuzzy like so much of life here on earth. Identity itself is hazy at best. We try to make it clear and well defined, but that is like holding a handful of sand.

Frankly, I have almost 200 blogs just on transgender and so this blog will be simple. It all comes down to other self. The world is our mirror and how we treat others determines how we are treated. It reflects what you think of yourself. Life is not happening to you, but thru you! How you see other self is how you see your own self. Ultimately, if you have looked around my websites you know I teach oneness. We are One! If you get what this means then there is no reason to read further. If not, I invite you to read my blogs and visit https://onenessministry.info/.

Transgender or any gender for that matter is a perception based on prejudice. Nothing is finite since life or our perception of it changes all the time. At some point you will be or have been all of it, just not all at the same time. Humans cannot function that way, so time serves to allow experience to span all possibility, one life at a time. What comes around goes around! Our entire Universe is designed to separate life into components, aspects, and pieces for further inspection. Its like looking at a cell under the microscope and identifying its parts. In that way we know it better. If you really want to know someone, walk a mile in their shoes is the phrase I used to hear all the time. The reality is we do exactly that! Enjoy the trip.

I am as I think

As I think, therefor I am. Works either way!  Powerful words meant to be taken literally. We quite literally think ourselves into existence. A dream within a dream? Many have an issue with who is driving the bus, but this blog is simply explaining how powerful our thoughts are and encouraging you to explore deeper.

I speak from experience when I say my observations support the statement “As I think, therefor I am.” When one steps out of the way they can suddenly see the forest through the trees. The ego mind will block you from actually seeing your manifest thoughts or it will try to aggrandize them. Its not like we consciously think, I am a millionaire and a million dollars show up in our bank account. The effect is metaphorical and over time can become literal. The more you think upon it the more these thoughts drive action which creates the experience. It could be you take a tour of a palatial palace and as you stand there it feels like it is all yours, because on the Spiritual level it is, we are all One.

Perhaps the thought is I am loved or loving. Say the prayer, “Show me how loving I am”, and then observe your life conform. If you have not been loving lately perhaps you run across a dog fight, literally or figuratively. Or you could see children playing or simply feel a strong warmth within. This is why you must observe and be open to what manifests around you. Subconscious guilt is always showing its ugly head when we start looking, so don’t be afraid. Have faith! Fear = False Evidence Appearing Real. The more one practices this and the purer of heart one becomes the truer the experience becomes. To thy own self be true! Its all you after all ❤

All paths lead home. Don’t be concerned with deception, fake news, or the like because what you focus on grows. The more you obsess on any one topic or belief the more it becomes true and like a magnet this experience is attracted into your life. This is why we say worry is negative prayer. Be not afraid to look at the world AND seek the good, the loving, the compassionate. It matters not what you see, it matters what you think and what you focus on or think on the most. This is one way to be a great gift to the world, by being a shining light. It is a choice and the choice is yours.

TransTime

Another view of being transgender centers around time. It feels to me that time is collapsing and lifetimes are blurring together. The many lives we live embody both sexes, various sexual orientations, different races, and body types of all shapes and sizes. The variety of Oneness. Humanity makes up just a small part of this Oneness though it is self aware to a point. Perhaps our next step is into deeper water. Into the Abyss of Life itself. I feel this connection to all that is. A serene experience no doubt.

Physics tells us that time is non-linear and the only purpose of linear time is to help our simple minds comprehend what is happening. In fact it’s all happening at once, past, present, future. How else could we imagine dinosaurs, future cities, and alien civilizations? We have gotten fairly specific with these visions! I say it is because we have experienced, are experiencing it, outside of time. The greater our Spirit grows the further we can see and the more we can experience. So it is not so much that I am transgender, but simply evolving to the next level of existence.

Curiosity, inquiry, and desire fuel this adventure. However, do not look outside for the answers for if you do then you will go without. Instead venture within. We each have the answers we seek. Simply be aware and beware what you wish for! Are you ready?

Nobody is Ever Alone

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.” Orson Welles

This quote makes one feel rather depressed, until they understand the truth here. See, it has to do with cosmology (our view of the world). Understanding means literally just that, standing under knowledge or simply having knowledge support you. What is it to “be alone”? Does it mean no one else is in the room or within eye sight? Be a lone. To be by oneself. Perhaps you have heard the saying, I am not alone, I am with me, myself, and I. <G>

We always have the voice within us, in fact we have both of them. The “i” and the “I”. The small ego self and the infinite intelligence self (some call this God). So the truth here is found in identifying who you really are. Are you the small self or the infinite self? The small self is confined to observable space around you, while the infinite self is well, infinite, meaning it includes everything and everyone.

We have a choice here to look with “i” eyes or “I” eyes. To see with small self or infinite self. Since we normally are being lead by the “i” it takes a conscious choice to see with “I”. A daily practice of saying I choose Infinity (God). I am not alone, I am free, I am just as God created me… I am Spirit, I am not this body or anything physical. I am here to enjoy the ride and place my journey in God’s hands.

Faith is developed just like any skill and is maintained by use just like any muscle or tool. Stand under Infinity (God) with Faith and know, No body is ever alone! If you are Spirit without an actual real body then you cannot die. Yes, consciousness shifts as does this illusion we call life. It is comforting to understand that our death is illusion and reality is always with us. To find it look within. Feel the Love.
