Shatter the Dream and Sing Me Awake

Sing Me Alive and Awake Again...

"Serenade my existence with the Truth that I may rise with a real sense of Abundance. Tear down the illusions of thinking so that I may know the birthright of my appearance here in this world. Fill me with courage and rapture so that the Song and I may become One. No more settling for leftover pieces of somebody else's composition. Raise Your Voice in me that I may proclaim that sound of freedom for all Eternity. Was I not begotten out of the Universal Symphony Itself? Will You not dissolve me back to that Kingdom of the Unstruck Sound? Bathe me in that Music that will take me Home. Is it not in the asking that the promise is fulfilled? There is no grovelling in this Kingdom of perfect Harmony. Sing, sweet Bird of my Vision and Lead Thou Me Onward.
Sing until there is no You and no I."

Today's blog entry is a meditation on the following quote from "Ancient Secrets of Success for Today's World", by Tulshi Sen:

"Your Individual Consciousness is the same as Universal Consciousness. When you know this, your whole Being is saturated with this feeling. Only then will you be able to vision with an Unlimited mind, and physically manifest your Vision with certainty. You will know your Power and you will ask the Power, and the Power will give unfailingly; this is the secret behind the command, "Ask and Receive."

All the circumstances in my life that still grate and chafe are softspots in my visioning. There are still areas where I compromise what I really desire to be experiencing. This gives me an opportunity to source out my weaknesses and work on them. I keep asking to be shown. The artwork helps me to process my feelings and look at them. Then staring deeply into the images, the words form. Then there is a tremendous sense of release and peace that comes.

May you feel that peace inside of you.
May creativity burst alive through your own experiences.
May you ask for audacious fulfillments.

Revel in the Zig-Zag Dance of Life

Feeling Buzzed with the Zig-Zag Song

I remember years ago, Master Visionary, Tulshi Sen revealed a secret for success that I wanted to capture somehow so as to never forget it. He said: "When the world wants you to zig, you zag". I felt a wave of freedom flow through me at that moment. All the outward expectations of what I ought to be doing with my life simply vanished in that instant. It was as if this declaration of freedom would allow me to find what I really wanted to do with my life. Later that year a powerful and lively song poured through me and guided me many times back towards my inner Self. When children hear this song, their eyes light up and I feel the magic of their freedom of thinking reaching out to me. Remember the zig-zag rule and you will always be forging your own unique path to success. Here are the the lyrics:

Rise up every morning
Stretch your body to the sky
Bow low ... there you go
There's that feeling
Feeling high...

Take a step every morning
Through the magic of your heart
Aim high you butterfly
Don't you be no butter tart

When the world wants you to zig
You zag with all your might
When the world wants you to crawl
You take your wings in flight
When the world wants you to sleep
You conquer every night
Life's too short to live
without a fight

Take a breath all the way in
Now breathe out...Begin again
Feel the peace of this release
Feel the flow of Love increase

Take the time every evening
to let your imagination fly
Audacious mind...what will you find?
Feel that feeling
Feeling highhhhhhhhhhhhh

When the world wants you to zig
You zag with all your might
When the world wants you to crawl
You take your wings in flight
When the world wants you to sleep
You conquer every night
Life's too short to live
without a fight

Rise up every morning......
Stretch your body to the sky.....

Ganga Fondan, 2005

Imbibed in this song are the ingredients for having an audacious life. These are gleaned from the principles in the book "Ancient Secrets of Success for Today's World", by Tulshi Sen. The hardest part of my journey has often been grasping the concept "limitless". His breakthrough techniques have helped me to stretch my imagination so that I might be able to reach higher and further than ever was possible before. We cannot zig or zag if we lack the ability to embrace a truly magnificent creative endeavor. Life is way too short to waste on living other people's dreams. BTW: This song will definitely be on my album coming out soon.

In the meantime remember: "When everyone else zigs, you zag."

PS Are you still doing the "Bee-Aware" exercises? (from the "Bee-lieving in Myself" Blog entry.) Awesome eh?

Living the Impossible Successes of Our Vision

A True Father of Environmentalism

Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997) an ocean explorer, educator and inventor left behind an unparalleled legacy of knowledge about the sea and our interdependence with this mysterious realm. His life work was a consistant battle against tremendous odds. He was frustrated with school and was kicked out at an early age. Later, he wanted to conquer the sky as an aviator but suffered substantial injuries in a car accident at age 26. He was sent to the sea for rehabilitation. He practiced hours of swimming to gain strength again. Now his romance with the ocean enticed him to become a pioneer of diving and improving underwater exploration (invented the Aqualung so man could breathe more freely underwater with an oxygen tank)) and nourished the public with extraordinary glimpses into his underwater world by making countless educational deepsea films. He became an advocate for all sea life and started the Cousteau Society to preserve and continue his work.

This artwork is my tribute to Jacques Cousteau and his timeless message of safeguarding the sea for coming generations. Also here is a beautiful song tribute by John Denver about the famous Calyso and its legendary captain. Every time I listen to this song, my heart leaps up. Everything Jacques Cousteau accomplished was once thought impossible.
and for a "Jacques Cousteau" Factsheet:

To sail on a dream on a crystal clear ocean
To ride on the crest of a wild raging storm
To work in the service of life and the living
In search of the answers to questions unknown
To be part of the movement and part of the growing
Part of beginning to understand

Aye, Calypso, the places youve been to
The things that youve shown us
The stories you tell
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you
So long and so well

Like the dolphin who guides you
You bring us beside you
To light up the darkness and show us the way
For though we are strangers in your silent world
To live on the land we must learn from the sea
To be true as the tide
And free as the wind-swell
Joyful and loving in letting it be

Aye, Calypso, the places youve been to
The things that youve shown us
The stories you tell
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you
So long and so well

Aye, Calypso, the places youve been to
The things that youve shown us
The stories you tell
Aye, Calypso, I sing to your spirit
The men who have served you
So long and so well

Words and music by John Denver

In the words of a Visionary Master:
"If you have a Vision and you know its possible to attain, then it is not a Vision, but a "to do" list." - Tulshi Sen

Here's to the "unattainable" star which stretches each of us into our success.

This Dreamchild Lives in Every Song

Song of the Dreamchild

This Photoart is dedicated to my soulmate, Narayan who left this world very early in his adult life. I wanted a child with him more than anything. Now it seems so clear to me that all of the songs that lifted me out of grief over these past years are still being created out of our intense love for each other. We promised that we would always share this love. Every song that awakens through me is the Universe celebrating our Oneness over and over. We always knew that love would light the way.

Here are the full lyrics to the "Dreamchild" song

Have you ever had a dream that you whispered to the sky?
Have you ever wanted wings so that you could fly?
Just believe
It will happen
What wonders you will see as all your dreams are set free

Well I wanted some release from a lonely and heavy youth
Oh a little inner peace with the master of my truth
I believed it would happen
What wonders did I see
as all those chains began to fall from me.

Then I dreamed to find my love share my life with a special man
and a whisper from above said "believe you can"
So I believed it would happen
What wonder did I see
Well that man he found me

Oh believe in the power of your dreams
Life is seldom what it seems
Ask for all the glorious grace
that you may see your Vision face to face...

Then I dreamed a child would come
from the union of our love
just like a daughter or a son
from the light that shines above
and I believed it would happen
My vision was so strong
That child lives in every song

Oh believe in the power of your dreams
Life is seldom what it seems
Ask for all the glorious grace
that you may see your Vision face to face...

Have you ever had a dream that you whispered to the sky?
Have you ever wanted wings so that you could fly?
Just believe.
It will happen.
What wonders you will see as all your dreams are set free.

Ganga Fondan, 2009

Soon this song and others will be ready for you to hear online. May you be inspired to create wonders out of all those dreams still inside of your heart. I didn't know that I would ever feel this happy again. With the help of meditation on the Four Proclamations even singing my songs begins to feel like my dreams have been a part of something much bigger all along. Our individual consciousness is part of everything. The love for Narayan can still fulfill a much greater desire. Our Dreamchild still grows and gives joy.

Have an awesome day,

Transcend the Illusion that We are Each Here Alone

Transcend the Illusion of Being Seperate

The thought experiments from my previous blog entries are leading me to ask some really significant questions. When I do the exercises, it always seems like so much more time has elapsed than what my watch is actually telling me. What is this relationship with time? Why does it appear to slow down and speed up? When we are visioning, where are we really?
After my experiment in the park today, I decided to go home and watch the movie "Kate and Leopold". Hmmmmmm to my surprise it was about Time Travel. Finding a flaw in the timespace continuum, the characters can be transported back and forth to the past and present. At one point, time is compared to a supersonic train where the world is "just blowing by". One line of the movie which captivates me is:

"...imagine if we could stop that train and get out, look around and see time for what it really is...a universe, a world, a thing as unimaginable as color to a dog and as real and tangible as that chair you're sitting on. If we could see like that, I mean really look at it, then maybe we could see the flaws in it as well as the form..."

Well now I was hooked into finding out what timespace continuum means. The easiest I can understand is that space(3 dimensional) and time (4th dimension?) are one continuum or arena of time and place. Rather than just measuring the variables to isolate a single point, this way of measuring actually locates an event happening between particles. (Huh?) I imagined it must be like stopping a movie in a certain place and freeze framing it. How can we measure Existence loaded with endless possible outcomes? Ok that was already alot for my brain to handle but then my eyes fell upon an experiment done in 1997 by Nicolas Gisin. He was a scientist greatly influenced by Einstein's experiments with measuring the location and momentum of two moving particles. In his experiment, Nicolas Gisin divided a single photon into two and had them travel away from each other in a fibre optics cable. Scanning the photons when they were 10km apart, he observed that what happened to one photon still affected what happened to the other. That is incredible!

So if particles as minute as photons can communicate with each other over long distances, what does that mean about life in general? About time? Everything is connected in Oneness. What any one of us does affects all of us because the particles within us have all been a part of this world since the beginning. This brings me back to the original task of timing the visioning exercises. Is there another time and space we reach into in the visioning process? Emotionally I feel so present in my imagination. How far does this Oneness reach? It feels so real. So much seems to be happening in such a short amount of time. I still have so much to discover.

The great explorer Albert Einstein found such humanity and compassion through his life long search for some of these answers. His findings and his influence continues to inspire us onward in discovering who we are and where we can go from here. This post is dedicated to him today. Remember his words:

"A human being is a part of the whole, called by us the “Universe”, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest - A kind of Optical Illusion of his Consciousness. This delusion is a kind of a prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security."

-Albert Einstein

If you would like to try some of the "Ancient Secrets of Success" thought experiments, just listen to this audio clip by Mr. Tulshi Sen. His work is cutting edge in the field of Visioning and freedom of thought. His pioneering achievements in the field of business and the individual life focusses on release from dependency on conditions while strengthening the inner faculties of Self-Reliance.

"Bee-ing Free in the Sea of No Conditions"


I don't know what is happening this week, but it feels a little like falling in love. The "bee-ing aware" visioning exercises mentioned in the previous posting are loosening some of the residual fear I didn't even realize was still limiting my thinking. Moving full speed ahead with my daily journeys into the "Sea of No Conditions", I feel like an explorer seeking a treasure that I'm just beginning to embrace in my Imagination. Sometimes I see those moments when I fear to want too much and that those things that are aching to burst free from the depth of my being are unattainable. These exercises are showing me that they are the most valuable parts of myself that I came here to experience. I don't want to run through the heroic stories of others over and over anymore, I want to activate my own. When all I felt was loss in the past, I needed the poetry and faith of other artists to dance with me in the freedom of existence but now I want to revel in the songs that are coming from deep within. Merge them with my daily living. Romance with the idea and the form. Go where I have never gone before.

The value of the watch and notepad results of my "bee aware" exercises are showing me the rigidity of the mind and its apprehension to make this leap. This helps me to see this ruthless challenger and recognize its tactics. The patterns repeat themselves over and over and reveal to me the source of my apprehension to let go. Sometimes unexpected variables appear and like mirrors they reflect unexplored or abandoned ideas that seek their expression in the fullness of my life. I've never been afraid to imagine but I realize that creating the life of my Imagination is something that repeating the Four Proclamations is about. I Am the Creator. Consciousness creates my Reality.

"Bee-lieving in Myself"


Easy peasy. Go to the park for the day. Bring a stop watch and a notebook. Amidst the blowing breeze, the dog walkers and the kids in the park, ...just breathe and focus on your Vision. That was the exercise for today . Hmmmmm...I couldn't believe the results. He said it would be grueling...but I had no idea what I was really getting into. This "bee thinking" has its moments. I don't want to disclose too many details about the actual experience incase you have not tried it yet. It may taint the genuine outcome for you. I can tell you this: Be true to the way the exercise is outlined in the 4 minute audio pasted below. Master Visionary, Tulshi Sen gives another tool for confidence building and living the life you really want to live.

I want to digest this experience a bit before commenting on it. I can tell you that I feel something has shifted for me. It feels powerful and connected. I want to continue with the 15 minutes a day for a while. I feel that my understanding of the value of these exercises is growing exponentially. Its not always easy to stand face to face with your own weaknesses, but there is something deliciously honest and organic about seeing yourself become more alive and in tune with everything. Last night as I was falling asleep, the words "My Consciousness is the Creator" echoed around in my head. It felt glorious. I woke up this morning buzzing with "bee-aware" clarity. Today I revel in that feeling. I know this is the turning point for something fantastic and all-revealing.

Listen to this short clip and challenge yourself with a day of audacious visioning. (Just click this bar here...)
