The Crystal

August 30th, 2014

Dear Mary, this morning, on our way to Weeki Wachee, I saw the outdoor, “Peace Tree Trading Post.” I told my friend, who was driving the car, “We should go there.” You know, I am, in my own way, a promoter of peace, and I am currently involved in an initiative called “Imagine Peace Wish Tree,” and the Peace Tree name of your store caught my attention. On our way back to Mount Dora, we drove by your store; call it a synchronicity! I begged Steve to turn around. He didn’t want to, but I insisted. I wanted to go inside, and now I know the reason why. Your gesture of giving me the crystal was very kind, special, and meaningful. Your words carried an important message, a reassurance that I am on the right path. “THIS CRYSTAL WILL REMIND YOU OF WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU WERE BROUGHT HERE TO DO.” Thank you for allowing yourself to be used as a messenger. You touched my heart. When you showed me that this crystal was, in fact, two crystals in one, I thought of my epiphany: “I am the child and the old man.” What a special gift on my 61st birthday! Much love to you, my long-time friend. Thank you for receiving my hug. Another coincidence… Here’s what I wrote this morning: “Come to me. I am ready to give you a hug, or many hugs. I have an unending supply of hugs to give. They are free. Free hugs! The secret is that I cannot give you one without getting one. The moment I give, I receive. Come to me. I want to hug you.” Piero

Dear Piero, it was both an honor and a privilege to have met a fellow Peacemaker. Your path is not one for the weak-hearted. It takes a lot of strength and courage to walk the path that you are on. You have a beautiful spirit, and I pray that you will be surrounded by a heavenly host of angels to watch after you. I see God in your eyes. I see beauty, love, peace, tranquility and serenity in your eyes. The gift of the crystal…….it is the keeper of the wisdom and the knowledge of who you were sent to the earth to be. And that being is awesome! Walk in Beauty my friend…. peaceful thoughts, Mary

March 18

Dear Mary, thank you for your kind words. I feel them; they touch me deeply. Thank you, again, for the gift. I have been thinking a lot about everything that happened. It was very meaningful; magic. I am getting ready to do my auto-Reiki this morning, here at the lighthouse in Mount Dora, and I have the crystal with me. I want to capture the emotions the entire event brought up in me: the beauty of giving, and how giving is what we are called to do. I also think about how I insisted to go to your store, and how following this inner command brought me to encountering you. I also think of you as a long time friend, a messenger, an angel. As I said, what for many could have been a seemingly mundane encounter, was full of meaning to me. Many revelations! I have to tell you that you have been in my mind, and that the crystal is operating in me; I feel the energy. Thank you for listening to your inner voice and following the inspiration to give it to me. I am paying attention. Much love and peace, Piero.

World of Solidarity – A Better Tomorrow

In the next decades drastic changes are going to take place in the world. The folks at Singularity University – a think tank – are at the forefront of thinking about these changes so we can direct them for the betterment of the world.

What follows is a post on Facebook by Udo Gollub.

><><><><><

Udo Gollub – April 22, 2016 – Berlin, Germany

I just went to the Singularity University Summit and here are the key learnings.

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they got bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen to a lot of industries in the next 10 years – and most people don’t see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on paper film again? Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore’s law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution. Welcome to the Exponential Age.

Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years. Uber is just a software tool, they don’t own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world. (btw, Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don’t own any properties).

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world, 10 years earlier than expected. In the US, young lawyers already don’t get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain. Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurately than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. There is an app called “moodies” which can already tell in which mood you are. Until 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it’s being displayed when they are telling the truth and when not. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.

Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You won’t want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location, and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. Our kids will never get a driver’s license and will never own a car. It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking space into parks. 1,2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 100,000 km with autonomous driving. That will drop to one accident in 10 million km. That will save a million lives each year. Most car companies might become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels. I spoke to a lot of engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; they are completely terrified of Tesla. Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100 times cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood. Electric cars will become mainstream until 2020. Cities will be less noisy because all cars will run on electric. Electricity will become incredibly cheap and clean: Solar production has been on an exponential curve for 30 years, but you can only now see the impact. Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. The price for solar will drop so much that all coal companies will be out of business by 2025. With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination now only needs 2KWh per cubic meter. We don’t have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There will be companies who will build a medical device (called the “Tricorder” from Star Trek) that works with you phone, which takes your retina scan, you blood sample and you breath into it. It then analyses 54 biomarkers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medicine, nearly for free.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies started 3D printing shoes. Spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past. At the end of this year, new smartphones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home. In China, they already 3D printed a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that’s being produced will be 3D printed.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: “in the future, do you think we will have that?” and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner? If it doesn’t work with your phone, forget the idea. And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed in to failure in the 21st century.

Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will be a lot of new jobs, but it is not clear if there will be enough new jobs in such a small time. Bitcoin will become mainstream this year and might even become the default reserve currency.

Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all days on their fields. Aeroponics will need much less water. The first petri dish produced veal is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don’t need that space anymore. There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as “alternative protein source” (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).

Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year. Four years ago, the lifespan used to be 79 years, now it’s 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more that one year increase per year. So we all might live for a long long time, probably way more than 100.

Education: The cheapest smartphones are already at $10 in Africa and Asia. Until 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smartphone. That means, everyone has the same access to world class education. Every child can use Khan Academy for everything a child learns at school in First World countries. We have already released our software in Indonesia and will release it in Arabic, Swahili and Chinese this Summer, because I see an enormous potential. We will give the English app for free, so that children in Africa can become fluent in English within half a year.

Meditation and Christianity: Calming the Mental Storm

Here’s the story of Jesus calming a storm, and my insights about it:

On that evening, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go across to the other side of the lake.” So they left the crowd. The disciples got into the boat in which Jesus was already in, and departed. There were also other boats with them. Suddenly a strong wind blew up, and the waves began to spill over into the boat, so that it was about to fill with water. Jesus was in the back of the boat, sleeping, with his head on a pillow. The disciples, who were very agitated and afraid, woke him up and said to him, “Teacher, don’t you care if we drown? Don’t you care that we are about to die?” Jesus got up and commanded the wind, “Be quiet!” and he said to the waves, “Be still!” Then the wind died down, the waves disappeared, and there was a great calm. He, then, asked his disciples, “Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?” They were in awe, and began to say to one another, “Who is this man? Even the wind and the waves obey him!” ~ Mark 4:35-41

Although I don’t have a problem accepting Jesus’s miracle of calming the wind and the waves in this physical realm, I have been inspired to see another meaning in this story. For me, this passage has less to do with actual weather storms, and more to do with the storms of unruly thoughts that take place inside our own heads.

Although Jesus could be sleeping while waves were breaking over the boat — what seems highly improbable — what I envision is that Jesus was meditating while everyone else around him was running around agitated and full of fear. I sense that his command, “Be quiet! Be still!” was directed not at the wind and waves, but, first, at himself and the thoughts inside his head, and, second, at his friends and the thoughts inside their heads. “Be quiet! Be still!” His was a simple command to go to a place of quiet and stillness, and experience peace.

I like to think that Jesus was telling himself, his disciples, and all of us, to meditate.

After being baptized by John the Baptist, Jesus spent forty days and nights in the desert. It looks like a long silent retreat for me… silence, solitude, and seclusion.

Many titles have been given to Jesus. I particularly like Wonderful Counselor and Prince of Peace, but now I am giving him a new title: Jesus, the Master Meditator.

Now, going back to those tempests, here, there, and everywhere…

In a boat full of fearful and agitated people, one sane, calm, and steady-minded person can find his way through the fog and storms, and take the boat safely to a harbor.

Be that person. Practice mindfulness. The world desperately needs more steady-minded individuals.

Beatitudes

We need to pause, look deeply, reflect, and understand what is being said here…

A fantastic double rainbow over Loch Laggan.
A fantastic double rainbow over Loch Laggan.

Blessed are they who are humble, modest, unselfish, and compassionate for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are they who mourn for all the injustices and suffering in the world, for they shall be comforted.

Blessed are they who have experienced the epiphany of oneness and understand the sacredness and the impermanence of all, for they shall inherit the earth.

Blessed are they who hunger for the end of all oppression and exploitation, and thirst for justice, equality, and a dignified life for everybody, for they shall be filled.

Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God.

Blessed are they who are persecuted for speaking truth to power, for being compassionate, and for doing what is just and morally right, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.

Blessed are they who believe that Heaven is here, if we want it to be, for they will live in Heaven, right here on Earth.

On November 1st, 2016, at the end of a trip to Sweden, Pope Francis celebrated a Catholic Mass in a stadium. Saying that new situations require new energy and a new commitment, he offered a new list of beatitudes for modern Christians:

Blessed are those who remain faithful while enduring evils inflicted on them by others and forgive them from their heart.
Blessed are those who look into the eyes of the abandoned and marginalized and show them their closeness.
Blessed are those who see God in every person and strive to make others also discover him.
Blessed are those who protect and care for our common home.
Blessed are those who renounce their own comfort in order to help others.
Blessed are those who pray and work for full communion.

If you want to be blessed and to be a blessing, do what the Beatitudes ask us to do, and be…

gentle, kind and generous

loving, giving and forgiving

pacific, calm and soft

patient, humble and quiet

nonviolent, benevolent and courteous

selfless, modest and mild

><><><><

Here are the original Beatitudes as they appear in the Gospel according to Mathew:

Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn: for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek: for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness: for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful: for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart: for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers: for they will be called children of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

It’s a Big Club and You Ain’t in It

Heaven is here, if we want it to be!

I believe that we can organize ourselves to live on this planet in such ways that everyone can have a good, thriving life. Our planet is a place of abundance, and everybody can have all they need to live a dignified life, without the fear of not having enough. We only need to change the prevailing ideas and ways we have been operating on Earth.

We need to find a cure to the disease of obsessive hoarding that plagues our minds. There’s no need for some of us to accumulate as much as we do. And why we do it? Mainly because we are afraid of not having enough in times of need. And why? Because we live in a very selfish and individualistic culture, a dog-eat-dog environment where, as we were told since we were young, “only the strong survive.” We are brought up being told that “it’s each man for himself and each woman for herself.” Naturally, we grow afraid that if something bad happens to us, no one will come to our rescue. What we witness in the world today is a lot of competition and greed.

Well, I believe we can use a lot more of compassion, cooperation and solidarity. I believe we can organize ourselves in such ways that everyone can be supported to be the best that they can be, what, in turn, will allow each one of us to give our unique contributions for the betterment of the world.

Unfortunately, we are immersed in a very greedy and selfish reality. George Carlin describes it in his own George Carlin’s way…

WARNING: George Carlin’s way is full of words that you may find offensive.
