 The center of convergence in a near-death experience

 The very fabric of our present day reality is being torn away by the far greater reality of another state of consciousness that exists beyond death and most certainly beyond ego consciousness and whose principle property is love, altruism and the urge to unite ~ and now it has been apparently scientifically demonstrated as reported by BBC: Allen L Roland, Ph.D

A BBC film suggests the reality of a loving state of soul consciousness ~ that exists beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and most certainly beyond clinical death.

My own after death experience with my mother in 1987 ( see article  ) and my twin brother in 2013 ( see article  ) as well as 40 years of tapping into that all unifying energy as a heart centered counselor and now consultant adds further proof to the existence of this state of soul consciousness that lies beyond time and space.

Also note how virtually all those people who have had a near death experience feel a profound need to be in service and claim their part, however minor, in a loving plan in action.

In August of 2013 I wrote an article entitled The Near and After Death Phenomenon Explained where I featured a video of Dr Eben Alexander being interviewed about his book PROOF OF HEAVEN where he describes a profound all-encompassing world of Love ~ which ties in with my findings. See article ~

I personally accessed this all-encompassing world of love and soul consciousness by completely surrendering to love in 1971, letting go of the relationship and embracing my deep psychic pain but not as a victim and realizing that person was a gift, and then tumbling through a wormhole of deep internal aloneness into a field of love, joy and soul consciousness, and then finding the courage to share what I had experienced with the world ~ and finally utilizing my innate connection with this Unified Field of love and soul consciousness in my work as a transformation counselor and now heart centered spiritual consultant.

Let me share further evidence of this field of love by sharing another dramatic story of a near-death experiencer. In the late 1990's I was interviewed by Jeffrey Schaub of KCBS TV in San Francisco regarding the meaning of the near-death experience. I was asked to comment on the film footage of a near death experiencer named Terry Meyers, who I had never met. After watching the film, I commented that her obvious need to be in service after the experience was very typical and confirmed that she had indeed experienced a state of soul consciousness.

Here's her note to CBS after the show which was forwarded to me :

"Eight years ago I had a spiritual rebirth. A virus literally destroyed my heart in a matter of four days. While at the hospital, when my heart stopped, I had a near-death experience. After coming back to life, I was overwhelmed with an intense feeling of love and joy.

Everything was clear to me ~ my purpose in life and why this happened to me. I fully understood how everything in the universe is evolved around love and my deep need to be part of it ~ and today my desire to help others is driven by this passion!

Dr Allen L Roland's television interview on KCBS validated all the feelings I had experienced like no one else has been able to do. It is as though he had looked into my soul and mind and was speaking my thoughts."

Precisely, for I was sharing my heart felt inner knowledge of the near-death experience and she realized I was telling a profound truth that she had indeed recently experienced ~ and which this video apparently scientifically confirms.

This documentary features in-depth case studies of Near Death Experiences including a dramatic veridical (verifiable accurate) out-of-body experience, the most recent research studies, and balanced interpretations of NDEs from both skeptical and "believer" perspectives ~ virtually everything an inquiring mind would need for an introduction to NDEs and virtually all demonstrating the existence of a loving field of soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space.

This BBC production is one of the best documentaries made about Near Death Experiences and it features many top scientists who have studied NDE's and other related incidents. But please note how close this comes to fully validating my long demonstrated Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears and ego consciousness ~ and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

Also be aware that the BBC has refused to replay this documentary, and has stopped it from being sold as a DVD. They don't want to get accused of supporting 'fringe' theories.

 (Click on Cartoons to enlarge)

Charles Barsotti died this week at 80 years old but his New Yorker cartoons touched myself and millions of others with their wonderful quirky sense of humor and imaginative insights into profound truths which were both delightful and thought provoking. His presence will be sorely missed for his cartoons provided much needed solace in our chaotic ego driven world: Allen L Roland

I love the New Yorker not only for its in depth reporting but also for its staff of excellent cartoonists who seemed to fully capture the themes of our times ~ but my favorite was Charles Barsotti whose simple sketches spoke volumes about the human state we live in and always brought a smile to my face.

 How about this one for truth-seekers ~ which includes myself.



Or this one about our fear driven society ~

Charles Barsotti was a gentle soul in a dysfunctional world and his cartoons brought a knowing and uplifting humor onto this troubled planet for more than 40 years. He was living his dream for he was a doodler as a child and his parents encouraged him to follow his passion. Almost 1,400 of his cartoons appeared in the New Yorker, and many more were published in The Atlantic, The New York Times and elsewhere and all of them, I am sure, touched a chord as they most certainly have with me.

 He leaves behind his wife, son, four daughters, three grandchildren and a sister but also the profound legacy of knowing that he struck a meaningful chord with many of his readers and brought a smile to countless human beings who were delighted to see the world through Barsotti's insightful childlike eyes.

 Here's my favorite  ~

Robin van Persie of the Netherlands scores the team's first goal with a diving header in the first half during the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil Group B match between Spain and Netherlands at Arena Fonte Nova on June 13, 2014 in Salvador, Brazil. (Photo by Jeff Gross/Getty Images)

There is always a moment in a major sporting event when a spectacular shot or throw captures the true essence of the sport and that moment this year was Robin van Persie's on the fly header which tied the game with Spain and shocked the world with its uninhibited audacity, brilliance and joy and also established Holland as the team to beat in this year's World Cup: Allen L Roland

The flying Dutchman, Robin van Persie, not only electrified the world with his soaring header but he inspired his team and soon the rout was on ~ As Arjen Robben got in gear and brilliantly attacked through the middle ~ Spain’s central defenders, Sergio Ramos and Gerard Pique, faltered and last year's champion Spain was thrashed 5 to 1. All of this occurred with striking workers and bloodshed in the streets of Rio as an ongoing reminder of the world wide inequality of our times.

Van Persie's equalizer from the back of Spain's net.


I've always considered myself a citizen of the world so the World Cup every four years gives me the chance to exercise that liberty as a fan with 32 teams throughout the world. But what fully captures me is the joy and exuberance of each countries followers which is unlike any other event in the world ~ as such, the World Cup offers the whole world the chance to celebrate together for one month in the spirit of the true football (soccer).

The current format of the tournament involves 32 teams competing for the title at venues within the host nation (Brazil) over a period of one month ~ this phase is often called the Final Competition.

A qualification phase, the Preliminary Competition currently takes place over the preceding three years, and is used to determine which teams qualify for the tournament together with the host nation ~ which this year is Brazil.

This is truly a world event ~ The FIFA World Cup is the world's most widely viewed sporting event; an estimated 715 million people watched the final match of the 2006 FIFA World Cup held in Germany and the 2010 event in South Africa was broadcast to 204 countries on 245 different channels. Inside the stadiums, a total of 3,170,856 spectators attended the 64 matches an average of 49,670 per match and the third highest aggregate attendance behind USA 1994 and Germany 2006.

The United States victory over Ghana 2-1 in Group G will be short lived since they still have to face Portugal and defeat a vastly superior Germany ~ which means that Germany will most likely eventually be facing Holland (the Netherlands) in the finals.

To me, this is Holland's year for they have never won the World Cup, although they were the finalists with Spain four years ago, but they are now playing like a team possessed. Watching Argen Robben manipulate the middle with his quickness and guile and strike like a lightning bolt was truly breathtaking along with Persie's speed and desire. See Robben in action ~ One minute video

Persie's header goal however is without a doubt the poster story for this 2014 World Cup and here it is in real time ~ along with Robben and Persie embracing each other while delirious supporters celebrate in the stands ~ One minute Video


“It seems that soccer tournaments create those relationships: people gathered together in pubs and living rooms, a whole country suddenly caring about the same event. A World Cup is the sort of common project that otherwise barely exists in modern societies.”
~ Simon Kuper, Soccernomics: Why England Loses, Why Germany and Brazil Win, and Why the U.S., Japan, Australia, Turkey--and Even Iraq--Are Destined to Become the Kings of the World's Most Popular Sport

Catch the World Cup fever !!

It's time to drop the bombshell ~ 96% of the universe is composed of Dark Matter and Dark energy but I maintain that it is really invisible to the human eye and is in actuality Light matter and Light energy for it represents a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness, that exists beyond time and space, whose principle property is the universal urge to unite ~ within which light and even gravity is a condition of state. As such, the basic glue of the universe is Love: Allen L Roland, PhD

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience; we are spiritual beings having a human experience.. Teilhard de Chardin

As a spiritual being having a human experience ~ I have long felt that only by fully surrendering to love have I gained access to a world unclouded by fear and ego consciousness and been able to fully experience and report on another inner world of celebration and service within an expanding Unified Field of Love and Soul Consciousness ~ which extends not only throughout the world but also the known universe.

The secret of my success as a heart centered spiritual counselor is that I am able to commune with my client on that level and quickly identify the emotional obstacle which keeps that person from accessing this innate common chord of soul consciousness as well as rapidly take the action necessary to change that obstacle into a stepping stone towards inner freedom from fear as well as their place in a gradually evolving loving plan in an action.

As such, I consider myself a citizen of the Universe for I am convinced that there are many other life forms throughout the Universe who know this truth and they are all willing to communicate with us on Earth ~ once we surrender to this universal truth and escape the suffocating world of ego consciousness as well as claim our part in a universal loving plan.

Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson explains in this short video how so much of the Universe is unseen and unexplainable but I maintain that only our consciousness keeps us from seeing and experiencing this all-encompassing Unified Field of love and soul consciousness ~ which can only be accessed by surrendering to love.

Tyson says that dark matter could be pink ~ it's only a name that science applied to it because it couldn't see it. Can you imagine a one-eyed scientist looking at a field of universal love and trying to understand it through his mind versus his heart ~ and then spending millions of dollars to find a GOD particle.

Science will surely remain one-eyed and lacking in depth-perception until it acknowledges the equal validity of subjective, sensory and spiritual experience. And it will continue to record the letter of mere mechanics, and miss the true spirit that brings it all to life, until it comes to recognize the universal urge to unite, even within the molecule itself, as being the universal attractive force of love.

No one describes this scientific impasse more tellingly than Lincoln Barnett, author of The Universe and Dr. Einstein: “A theoretical concept is emptied of content to the degree that it is divorced from sensory experience ~ for the only world man can truly know is the world created for him by his senses. Beyond that point he stares into the void.”

The Secret Life of Dark Matter: Questions with Neil deGrasse Tyson  ~ 4 MINUTE VIDEO


In that article, I explained that The basic underlying and uniting force of the Universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness (the Unified Field) which lies not only beyond time and space but ALSO beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite. (By ‘psychic’ I mean inexplicable by natural laws). 

 I have demonstrated this for the past 40 years in my role as a heart centered transformation therapist and counselor with both emotionally wounded civilians and combat veterans with PTSD.

So what about all that unaccounted for space in the universe?

Scientists have predicted that space is filled with an invisible field that gives particles their mass. They’ve dubbed it the Higgs field. In 1966 Peter Higgs (University of Edinburgh) proposed that the universe was full of a field called a HIGGS FIELD. Supposedly disturbances in this field, as particles move through it, cause objects to have mass. They postulated that the Higgs Field consists of countless Higgs particles (called Bosons) that act like a kind of cosmic molasses that fills all of space. As objects move through space they have to ‘wade’ through these Higgs particles that ‘cling’ to them, causing a drag that shows up as mass.

A Cosmic quantum field of molasses ~ give me a break! 

 And scientists, of course, have all been hot on the trail to find this elusive GOD particle and are spending billions of dollars in the process. The July 2005 issue of Scientific America highlighted this search in a lead article entitled The Mysteries of Mass ~ where they announce “Scientists are hunting for an elusive particle that would reveal the presence of a new kind of field that permeates all of reality.”

Despite the questionable Nobel Prize, the Higgs Boson has never been actually found and actually represents a hope ~ much like Obama's Nobel Peace prize !  

In 2011, CERN scientists declared that over the entire range of energy the Collided had explored ~ from 145 to 466 billion electron volts ~ the Higgs boson is excluded as a possibility with a 95% probability.

Obviously, Particle physics has reached a dead end. Once again, scientists are still looking without, through one eye, for an external physical particle and will never discover this elusive field unless they look through their other subjective eye and acknowledge the within of things and the universal urge to unite

In other words, we are not all floating around in a static and disconnected Higgs quantum field of molasses but, instead, are all swimming in a Roland Unified Field of love, connection and soul consciousness ~ that permeates the universe.

Now all we need is a recognized physicist to question the limitations of the quantum Higgs Field of static molasses. Dr. Wulf von Bonin does just that in his brilliant paper The Picture of Current Cosmology and Questions to it In his section Problems with the “Higgs Field Bonin writes; “If the “Higgs field” is rich in energy, enables expansion, materializes itself in particles of heavy masses, and is able to mediate masses for other particles, it has to be already “dimensional”. It already possesses the characteristics of cosmic dimensions. It has to develop historically from a universal and non-dimensional basic status and this status has to differ significantly from the “Higgs field”.   

As Amir Aczel writes in Scientific America on August 23, 2011 ~ But if the Higgs doesn’t exist, where does mass in the universe come from? Theories that go beyond the “standard model” of particle physics may be necessary

And now we have a demonstrated theory  ~ the Roland Unified Field  of love and soul consciousness which differs significantly from the Higgs Field because its driving cosmic dimension is the universal urge to unite which permeates the universe and also exists deepest within ourselves ~ and it most certainly goes beyond the standard model of particle physics.

As such, the Higgs field of static molasses now becomes a Roland Unified Field of dynamic cosmic interconnections fueled by the universal urge to unite ~ and we all participate in this evolutionary process or loving plan as co-creators.  

But as the Universe expands is it, in reality, feeling an increasing innate urge to unite?

Yes, all those Galaxies in our expanding universe are awaiting their innate call to union ~ as the millions of people on our expanded crowded planet are also awaiting our innate call to union.

Then, what is the call?

The call, quite simply, is love or the innate universal urge to unite.

Let me use the findings of the recent Nobel Prize winning researchers, Politzer, Gross and Wilczek, to prove my point.

They won the 2004 Nobel prize in physics for their studies of the “strong Force “~ the powerful and mysterious energy that holds the nuclei of atoms together.

They explained the mystifying qualities of the strong force, which holds together the fundamental building blocks of nature, called QUARKS, to form protons and neutrons ~ two of the basic components of atoms.

Now, this is when it gets interesting.

Independently, they developed the theory and the mathematical equations to show that Quarks are held together by the strong force which, unlike any other force in the universe, gets stronger as the quarks get farther apart ~ a concept now known as “Asymptotic Freedom “.

The simplest analogy is to a rubber band encircling two objects.

When the objects are close together, the rubber band fits loosely. But as they are drawn apart, the rubber band stretches, eventually trying to pull them back together.

Now, here is my take on these findings as applied to my Unified Field of Love and Soul Consciousness.

The strong force in the atom is the urge to unite which is the principle property of my Unified Field.

It is the same urge to unite that Bose and Einstein found when they discovered that photons (light particles) have a tendency to travel together versus act randomly ~ which eventually led to the discovery of the laser.

This would also seemingly explain how the urge to unite would increase as the Universe continues to expand. In other words, Asymptotic Freedom exists not only within the atom but within the physical realm of space itself.

As such, it is a force that is stronger than Gravity !

Thus, the one constant of the universe would no longer be light at 186,000 miles per second for even light particles (photons ) are subject to this force field of love ~ this driving urge to unite which exists not only beyond time and space but also deepest within all matter.

And this would also explain why mankind is in the process of uniting while we seemingly are dividing and pulling away from each other.

And finally, on an individual level, it would explain the evolutionary power of love, altruism and social cooperation and how we can no longer resist our innate pull and urge to unite versus separate, isolate and dominate.

Steven Hawking wrote in BLACK HOLES AND BABY UNIVERSES about his concerns about a grand Unified Field: “And even if there is only one unique set of possible laws ~ it is only a set of equations. What is it that breathes fire into the equations and makes a universe for them to govern? Is the ultimate Unified Field so compelling that it brings about its own existence?”
In response to Hawking’s query ~ This Roland Unified Field  of love is that compelling and it does bring about its own existence because it is deepest within us all and is the virtual plasma of the universe. Hawking also posed that there ought to be something special and simple about a theory of everything ~ and what could be more special and simple than LOVE.

Thus, Dark matter becomes a  Unified Field of love, light and soul consciousness and Dark Energy becomes its principle property ~ a universal urge to unite which exists beyond time and space ~ and which we ignore at our collective peril.

So what would be the philosophical effect of a Grand Unified Field of love ~

Lincoln Barnett summed up the planet shifting philosophical effect of a true Unified Field ~  “The great philosophical triumph of any Unified field is implicit in the first word of its title. It will carry to logical fulfillment the long course of science towards the unification of man’s concepts of the physical world. For from its august perspective, the entire universe would appear as one elemental field in which each atom, each flying electron, each star, each wandering comet and slow-wheeling galaxy is seen to be but a ripple or tumescence in the underlying space-time unity. And so a profound simplicity would supplant the surface complexity of nature. Thus all man’s perceptions of the world and all his abstract intuitions of reality would merge finally into one, and the deep underlying unity of the universe would be laid bare.” 

The deep underlying unity of the universe has been laid bare and guess what ~ it's all about love which is precisely what virtually every near and after death experiencer also shares.

Love not only impregnates the universe like an oil that will revive its colors. It does not simply bind the clouded dust of our experiences into a common lucidity. It is a true synthesis which operates on the grouped bundle of our faculties. And this is indeed the point which is the most important to understand: Teilhard de Chardin ( Human Energy )

Space shuttle Challenger unnecessarily blows up shortly after liftoff on January 26, 1986

American exceptionalism becomes unforgivable when human beings become expendable in order to save costs, make deadlines or protect image and nowhere is that more evident than in the disaster of Space shuttle Challenger on January 26, 1987 along with its seven crew members ~ and all because of a faulty booster O ring seal which NASA managers ignored in order to stick to their timetable. Unfortunately, this was later the same story for the Space shuttle Columbia disaster, with its seven crewmembers, on February 1, 2003 when NASA managers refused to examine the left wing before reentry concluding that the crew could not have fixed the problem if the damage was confirmed: Allen L Roland


Unfortunately, this is the shocking sad truth of much of the Bush/Obama version of American "Exceptionalism" ~ any means to the end regardless of the cost, both humanly and morally. It certainly applies to corporate greed and unjust wars, it applies to a deeply unpopular and corporate controlled congress, it applies to misguided government policy, both domestically and foreign ~ and it also applies to many agencies within the government, including NSA and NASA. It's a top down mindset and it infects all of us ~ think GM's recent deadly avoidance decision with faulty starter ignition switches which cost at least 13 American lives.

The late Charley Reese summed it up correctly ~ "Congress  - seems to never know what the CIA and other intelligence agencies are doing. Like the Romans, they no longer talk of the republic or liberty. And like the Romans, the American people, or most of them anyway, don't seem to care. ... Like the Romans, we no longer have a citizen army but professional legions, and whether they wear jackboots or not, some federal officers seem to regard Americans with about the same compassion as the Praetorian Guard had for the plebes. 

As in Rome, the air is full of suspicion, intrigues and conspiracies, real or imagined, and the air reeks of greed and opportunism. As those on the Tiber, the rulers on the Potomac have grown suspicious of the people, don't trust them and, in some cases fear them. And, as in Rome, they grovel in luxury while taking 40 cents on the dollar out of the sweat of working people to pay for corn and circuses to keep the mob satisfied." - -- Charley Reese - (1937-2013) American syndicated columnist

Now take a few minutes and watch the cost of this arrogance and hubris as seen in our Space program and please remember ~ we are paying for this ongoing major moral malfunction of American exceptionalism.

20 minute video Documentary ~ Major Malfunction: Revisiting Challenger / and Columbia


"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget. " - Arundhati Roy
