Acceleration! Solidarity! THRIVE!!!

Standard

Things are about to get moving. I can just feel it. Change is upon us. We are clearing out the aspects of our lives we have either out-grown or have received the lesson from sufficiently to let go — ready to move on to implementing our new knowledge and power.

Forgive, forget. Put the past in the past where it belongs (if you still participate in space and time). Be present and pay attention. Life won’t be so scary to you if you truly understand: everything is as it should be. Just relinquish yourself to the flow and enjoy the treasure-hunt of where-to-next? Maybe the short-term future is not clear to you … let alone the long-term future. Things have changed. We live in a time of uncertainty. Was there ever certainty, or just the illusion that things were a certain way and would continue to be that way? No more illusion of that for anyone whose eyes are even a little bit open these days. The future is blank. Which way things go from here is completely up to us. We have to decide.

First on the strategy list is to establish solidarity. Yes … maybe if we quit being afraid of each other, living in ego and competing for what we think there is too little of … together we could stand up to the forces that keep us at odds with each other just so we won’t notice they are keeping us at odds with each other just so we won’t notice they are keeping us at odds with each other. Thus distracted, they can do as they please with our insignificant little lives like they’ve done for so long, and now look where we are. But bummer for them, the world is awakening. Change is upon us and we can say which way it goes — in our favor or theirs.

We can decide to Thrive.

There are so many organizations forming with the intention of bringing people together to effect positive healing change to where we can all live in the world the way it was meant to be … a world in which we all Thrive. The Global Rowing Club is just one small attempt to reach out and build a community around a powerful strategy for not only global change and healing, but to support and facilitate every other organization and individuals who are working toward accomplishing the same goal.

Pick something to be a part of and hang on for the ride of your life. Pick The Global Rowing Club and hang on for the row of your life. We’re all in the same boat so let’s PULL TOGETHER!

Step Through The Mirror In 2012

Standard

2012 — The End Of The World As we Know It!

One can hope.

Oops! That sounded negative, right? I don’t mean it in a negative way. Who out there isn’t ready for a change? Why can’t it be a GOOD change instead of disaster? Gracious evolution of mankind and gentle healing of our planet has MY vote.

The image we see in a mirror is always backwards.

I have always been backwards. I’m left-handed to start with and it goes on from there how completely my outlook is contrary to the status quo.

Contraries

I thought about this and Googled Contraries in the Native American culture. It’s worth a look. The Contraries were magical and powerful and shocked the people of their tribes into waking up and thinking by doing EVERYTHING backwards. People need to be reminded to do their own thinking. Contraries are, in fact, the origin of CLOWNS.

Nineteen Eighty-Four vs. Brave New World

In Nineteen Eighty-Four, George Orwell predicted the people would be oppressed by Big Brother and deprived of information.

In Brave New World, Aldous Huxley predicted we would all be lulled into passivity by infinite distraction — too much information.

Well, as it turns out … I’d say TOO MUCH INFORMATION is filling our heads and keeping us from focusing on the simple essence of what is keeping our world from running smoothly and doing something about it.

It’s backwards people like me that instead of being heard … are considered a bit ridiculous by the people who are distracted and therefore do not do their own thinking.

I challenge everyone in the world to get quiet, clear your heads, hear the voice of your own thoughts and then have the courage to step through the mirror where the world isn’t backwards after all.

 Red Pill vs. Blue Pill

Take the Red Pill. I think The Matrix had something … only backwards. The “blissful ignorance” of the blue pill is really enslavement and what keeps the world in a constant state of conflict from the our individual inner struggles, relationships … to Countries at war with each other. The awakening to reality from the red pill will show us the way to realizing we’re all in this together and it will become our very natures to turn away from the absurdity of being controlled and oppressed to working together to heal ourselves, each other and our planet.

You may say that I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. If you’re a dreamer too … then

A Magical Life-Changing Experience!

I am Trina Carrion from Venezuela. Last year during a tour of South America, I thought about Googling the word “rowing” because I was starting to take an interest in this beautiful sport, when I discovered a website: The Global Rowing Club. Founder Jenifer Humming’s story captivated me immediately. From her widely varied website (big surprise, not just about rowing!), I could see Jenifer was a talented writer, a genius inventor, greatly enlightened and spiritual, a super high level athlete with an incredible personality and a magnet to attract people. When I read she was recruiting for interns, I decided to contact this intriguing woman and struck a deal with her to come to the U.S. to work on their behalf. I came to learn to be her assistant and train to become a fundraiser for The Global Rowing Club. While there, I was able to assist in translating extensive amounts of information about Jenifer and her projects, especially her medical device that my own government has taken great interest in manufacturing. I continue to make translations of her writings and there will be a section of the website soon entirely in Spanish.

I lived a wonderful experience during my 9 months of working and learning with Jenifer. Since her beautiful home used to be a health retreat, there was the added benefit I could learn to live a more spiritual life, eat a more natural diet, how to sprout seeds and ferment food, and my dream come true, I learned how to row.

She exposed me to so many things new to me and expanded my outlook on everything, maybe most magical was her special way with hummingbirds! I also got to meet and be around other interesting and brilliant people who believe in Jenifer and support her cause. My health drastically improved, my fitness level increased, my self-esteem went up, I am now able to feel a great peace of mind. I am a different person with a more open mind, spirit and personality more integrated. She had and still has an influence of great value so I consider she totally transformed my life. I am now living a new life. I feel now I am being useful, and I am in love with our beautiful planet and its inhabitants, I feel that working with her, apart from the honor that it represents for me, now a very bright future awaits for me.

I witnessed how she worked in her workshop, where with great effort, integrity and dedication, she prototypes her inventions. The workshop is simply amazing, with many tools and gadgets that she dominates to perfection and keeps in perfect condition and clean. In this workshop I had the opportunity to observe and help in the redesign of one of her inventions: the ErgoRack! But the most striking is the way she creates her inventions, it comes from a particular need she has for something and cannot find on the market or she would have bought it instead of making it. That happened with the ErgoRack. She needed a rack she could put on and take off of her car easily, that let her load her boat on the top without assistance and secure it safely. In the workshop she showed me also examples of previous inventions, real samples of her ingenuity.

As a prolific inventor she has created a lot of things that make life easier and more practical to everyone from rowing accessories, an important medical device created to save the lives of billions of people, things for sports and fun, even a software training program for instructors of group weight training and body pump, food recipes and natural cosmetics, and books that tell you how to live well, how to eat properly, and other books hopefully soon to be published. But her talents do not end here. Jenifer has created a major project called “The Cosmos Renewable Energy Solution.”  With the help of business partners, sponsorship, fundraising and donations by people who love our planet, and the aid of specialists and engineers, this project is very ambitious and when accomplished would help to heal the ecosystem of our planet.

I have returned to Venezuela and plan from here to return to Europe where I will continue to get the word out about this important Campaign to make a big difference in the world by supporting Jenifer’s strategy to raise the funds to make The Cosmos a reality.

P.S. I wrote this in Spanish and translated to correct English with the help of  Jenifer. ¡No escribo perfecto en inglés!

Surfing The Piscean / Aquarian Cusp

Standard

I was bulldozed by many seasoned business experts to take the route of accepted business practices in developing my first invention, currently referred to on this web site enigmatically as “The Medical Device.” I had great fresh ideas when I started out, but in what I thought at the time was wise deference to their experience, I always ended up caving to the “good” ideas of experts that were more conventional (and more to their financial advantage). In retrospect, it is clear that my ideas were the good ideas, but I didn’t have the confidence at the time to stay with my mavericky (thank you Tina Fey) convictions. At the time I didn’t realize I was a pure Aquarian on a mission to exemplify a new way of conducting business and how to live life in general.

Running The Medical Device company all by myself almost killed me. What huge medical device companies informed me (when I attended The Future Medical Forum several years ago) was an astounding accomplishment for an individual to achieve, is not something I am that proud of right now in terms of the outcome — and I don’t want a repeat of it. I want to be as far away from the soul-stealing life-force-sucking struggle of “bootstrapping” in a sea of Piscean sharks as I can be. So I’ll steer clear of the sharks, be creative in my approach, do my own thinking and insist my ideas be implemented instead of discounted,  trumped and thwarted. My modus operandi won’t appeal to the people who aren’t risk-takers (just takers) and adventurers. Good! I can no longer bear to surround myself with that energy — so just consider that the things I come up with that “savvy business men” advise me to toss out are the very things I deliberately keep to be sure to sort things out from the start. Also considering the conventional mind-set is what has gotten this planet in the shape it’s in and what keeps the majority of its inhabitants in denial, I am keen to find a new breed of thinkers to populate my foxhole.

It is TIME (Aquarian Age) to be creative and go out on limbs and think outside of stupid confining boxes. That’s just how I am wired. To diminish my integrity and compromise my ideals to force an agenda would be to negate the very essence of who I am. It would be over for me right there.

So I will be whimsical, insist on things being fun, off-beat, outlandish and look at everything from the fresh point-of-view of someone who has not been indoctrinated by how things are supposed to be done. I have no need to suppress myself to meet with the approval of conventional thinkers just to get their money. People either believe in me, the REAL me, or they don’t. I won’t “pose” for money!

My world-saving ideas will be just great ideas without substantiation until I can afford the engineers to flesh them out. I was in Costly Medical Device Manufacturing Hell for five years trying to reach the point where I could devote my time and funding to The Cosmos. It took total ruination of my health and finances to finally force me to release myself from that hell. The moment I finally became powerful was the moment I achieved two thirds of what my hero Nicola Tesla achieved on his final day on earth. I became penniless and alone. Freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose. It was only at that point people like me started to show up to support my newest freshest idea: The Global Rowing Club. ¡Olé!

So what if all I ever do from now on is travel and row and talk about a dream? I guess that makes me a happy person already living a dream. My best has to be good enough. Time will tell about the rest. I am just well-informed enough to know that the entire planet is entering a new age and it will be daring quixotic people like me who will pull our world out of this ever-accelerating nose dive if the old school will just step aside and admit they didn’t make the cut. Until then, egos will play a destructive and pointless tug-of-war. Don’t expect (or advise) me to pick up either of the rope.

The people I am manifesting to populate my reality to implement my/our Purpose — are dreamers who have a sense of humor and a consuming desire to heal our planet. I am not for everyone. But I do know (finally after too many years of resisting the pay-off from my expensive education) that from now on we are going to do it my way (according to the Aquarian paradigm) or not at all. My wagon to the stars is going to be a fun adventure or I’ll be the first to jump off. Maybe it will fly, maybe it won’t. It’s out of my hands. I am simply WILLING to do my part and am not invested in the outcome.

My only agenda is The Will Of Heaven. Que será será.

Feel free to join me all ye who dare to Surf The Cusp in critical times — for what I hope and pray will be a relatively painless shift into a bright, shiny and peaceful Future. Denial or a negative fatalistic attitude will only exacerbate an inevitability that will not go away no matter how much you are distracted by a vast sea of minutia. Decide something about the BIGGEST AND MOST OBVIOUS ISSUE ON EARTH. To not decide is to decide. Time (if you still believe in time) is running out.

Your Dream Is Willing (To Stay or Escape)

A visit from a baby hummingbird is just a usual day in the life of Jenifer Humming, but  holding a hummingbird (colibrí, picaflor, tucusito) is a life-long dream come true for Trina Jacqueline — Jenifer’s talented, interesting well-traveled, multi-lingual buena amiga and assistant from Venezuela and a European resident. Trina is in the United States training to be el jefe of International Fundraising for The Global Rowing Club, promoting Jenifer’s inventions in South and Central America and learning to be an excellent sculler!

La Tragedia

Standard

Cuando la tierra está en dolor, ella entra en erupción. La energía negativa de todos el odio y la violencia y la deshonestidad y la codicia de los humanos hace sentir impotente. Cuando ellos también maltratan a ella ya todos los abusos de la generosidad preciosos de los animales y plantas que ofrece para nuestro sustento, que la hace enferma de sentirse no amado. Su dolor y los síntomas de la enfermedad muestran como los desastres naturales.

When the earth is in pain, she erupts. The negative energy from all of the hatred and violence and dishonestly and greed of the humans makes her feel helpless. When they also mistreat her and abuse all of the precious bounty of the animals and plants she provides to sustain us, it makes her sick from feeling unloved. Her pain and sickness show symptoms like natural disasters.

Las personas que murieron se han salvado. No es una tragedia para ellos. Son libres y en la felicidad. La tragedia es para los que se han quedado atrás a llorar y sufrir por la pérdida de sus seres queridos. La tragedia es que ni siquiera esto despertar el resto del mundo a actuar tan rápidamente como se debe para evitar futuras tragedias que afectan a todos sin excepción.

The people who died have been spared. It is not a tragedy for them. They are free and in bliss. The tragedy is for the ones who have been left behind to cry and suffer for losing the ones they love. The tragedy is that not even this will awaken the rest of the world to act as quickly as they must to prevent future tragedies that will affect everyone without exception.

La tragedia es que me siento solo en amarla tanto y no poder hacer lo suficiente porque la gente está demasiado asustada y no se unen para salvar a nuestra madre. Yo no soy más que un hilo de voz. Tengo que ser una gran voz. O tengo que ir sólo de distancia, porque me duele mucho no poder ayudar.

The tragedy is that I feel alone in loving her so much and not being able to do enough because people are too afraid and will not join together to save our mother. I am only a small voice. I need to become a big voice. Or I need to just go away, because it hurts me too much to not be able to help.

Voy a rezar por las víctimas de la tragedia, sus familias, para todas las personas en el mundo, y para el planeta bello que el amor. Siempre lo hago.

I will pray for the victims of the tragedy, their families, for everyone in the world, and for the beautiful planet I love. I always do.
