ereading September's Surf Report titled "Adjustments" in light of the events of September 11th, it's interesting to find the clues to the profound changes we have undergone. We have certainly made deep adjustments to the very foundation upon which we stand. The world that we knew has null zoned and no longer exists. Ground Zero is found not only in the rubble of the World Trade Towers in New York, but within ourselves.

Now we need to figure out how to adjust to the menacing new world which has been thrust upon us. As those dedicated workers clear through the debris in New York and Washington, we also need to sift through the debris within our own beings.

It's time to take stock of our present situation. What remains within us? What has been irrevocably destroyed? What's important anymore? Where are we standing: duality or Oneness? What reality are we feeding? Is it fear and revenge or is it compassion and Oneness?

Fear is a natural reaction to these troubled times. A tremendous sense of insecurity and uncertainty has enveloped us. We have been thrown into a challenging world situation in which there appears to be no easy resolution. Although it may appear to some that this is a battle between "Good" and "Evil", it is not that simple to define. Much larger forces are at play.

It makes me think of my book "EL*AN*RA: The Healing of Orion" which is the story of the massive Intergalactic Wars between the forces of Light and Dark, the supreme battle of duality. What happens in the book is that a somewhat ragtag third force is created which serves to triangulate duality and stretch it open to transform it into Oneness.

Perhaps, this is the time for us to create a third force, the force of Awakened Humanity, the force of Love and Oneness. The force of Compassion for all beings. Perhaps, if we are able to see that the suffering of anyone on this planet also takes place within us, that the hunger of any member of our One Being affects us all, that we are all woven together into the tapestry of Oneness, then we will be able to rise into new solutions other than ever escalating terrorism, war and devastation.

It is truly up to us to do this. We cannot count on most of our world leaders for they are caught in the trap of duality. We cannot count on world religions for they are also playing out old duality-based roles. We need to look at our western civilizations and see where we have lost our integrity. We need to see what has become decadent and heartless. We need to look at the needs of all the forgotten peoples of the planet, those starving, suffering masses whom we have largely ignored. We need to understand the seeds of the anger of the millions of Muslim Fundamentalists.

We need to step beyond the storms of karma and destiny, and rise into our One Heart / One Being as never before. Can humanity rise up to love and care for each other before it is too late? Can we step off the wheel of duality and even in the midst of our own personal fears and insecurities, refuse to play that game?

Terrible things have happened on our planet in the last month and terrible things continue to happen. But it's important to remember that there have also been positive effects. Many people have deepened their awareness. Our masks and disguises have disintegrated. Our hearts have cracked open. We have received a huge Wake-Up Call. Now, it's vitally important that we start living our lives using this heightened awareness.

We also need to accept our fear and use it to hone our intuition. When it doesn't feel right to do something, don't do it. When you don't want to go out, stay home. We can really do anything and go anywhere, as long as it feels right, as long as we stay aligned in the beam of Oneness. Listen to your intuition and let it guide you.

When we do go out, it's important to be alert and real at all times. Let's not be in such a hurry to try to put on new masks or disguise our true feelings. Let's be real with one another. Let's express our love and support with everyone we encounter. Let's remember our One Being and start living in that consciousness.

We need to be very aware of the pull of duality and not let ourselves get entangled in it. Let's not demonize anyone. Let's not consider anyone our enemies. Look at it as a movie if you must and see what roles that people are taking and remember that when all is said and done, when all the costumes and makeup are removed, that we are all beings of light. We are ALL part of ONE BEING.

The Muslim Fundamentalists are living out their beliefs. The American government and military are living out their beliefs. Now, why don't we live out our beliefs?

I don't know what outer events will take place in the month of October. From the present vantage point, it certainly doesn't look promising. Since we don't have control over many of the outer events in our lives, then this is a good month to take a clear look at ourselves and make any necessary adjustments. We have a great opportunity to really step into our Core Selves this month and to realign onto a truer path. Although we may physically withdraw from many of our usual activities, we don't have to withdraw from stepping into our Core Beings.

This is also a month for gentleness with ourselves and others. Even though we may be frustrated at having so little control over outer events, it's not a time to get drawn into anger and hatred. Fanning the flames of hatred and revenge will not heal the world crisis. Vast love and compassion just might. Step into your heart and strengthen that position.

Many of us are feeling tired and withdrawn. This is because we are working overtime on other planes to heal and transform the immense pain, suffering, grief, fear and anger raging throughout our planetary psyche. We are transmuting these energies within our own beings and sometimes, it takes everything we've got. So please, don't think that you are being lazy if all you want to do is lie down and be quiet. You are doing important work for all of us.

Try to take a few minutes each day when you can step beyond yourself and become vast. Hold the planet Earth and all its inhabitants in the palms of your hands. Then, give our planet love. Send love to all the peoples, all the animals, all the different kingdoms of plants, nature, rocks, winds, birds, etc.. Everything, everyone is traumatized right now. Smooth out the distraught emotions, bathe everything in love and reassurance from the center of our One Heart. Then, place the Earth within your heart and carry it there within you wherever you go.

It's well worth remembering that null zones are the most fertile ground for birthing the New. They effectively dissolve all the previous patterning and allow us to step free of the old ways of being. We now have the opportunity to do this. Yes, we face huge challenges and troubled times, but if we come together in Love and Oneness, if we step into our greatness, then we might be able to save the planet.



Transform Fear into Heightened Intuition:
According to the Hopi Prophecies, at the end of each world it was those who had an opening on the top of their heads who survived. This opening is intuition. If we are aligned with our intuition, we will be in the Right Place at the Right Time.

Be Gentle with Yourself & Others:
Null zones need time to be healed. They are full of rough and jagged places and gaping holes. We need to move slowly and carefully, not rush about mindlessly.

Allow yourself to grieve when you feel like it.
Feel your feelings, but realize that much of what we are feeling right now aren't just our own personal feelings. We are experiencing many of the planetary emotions as well.

A good month for Purification:
Clean out the old, recalibrate your Self and your surroundings. This will empower you. Many are choosing to Fast in order to clean out their systems of toxins and get clearer. A good fast is the Master Cleanser in which you can drink as much as you want of pure water, lemon, dash of cayenne and 1-2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup.

Spend time each day in 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 also nourish and strengthen the resonance of Oneness throughout the world.
