Here I am perched on this pale blue dot in space, Earth. Our Sun, which is 4.7 billion years old, is located 26,000 light-years away from the galactic center on one of the spiral arms of our galaxy ~ the Milky Way. The Sun makes one complete orbit around the galaxy about once every 225 million years. In contrast, stars near the galactic center complete a lap in a few million years or less. Most of our galaxy is relatively uncrowded ~ the nearest star to our Sun, for example, is 4.2 light-years away. Roughly 10 million stars are known to orbit within a light-year of the galaxy’s center ~ but we are all innately joined to  this immense enormity by guess what ~ our ability to love: Allen L Roland, Ph.D

"I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy." -  Rabindranath Tagore  

As Carl Sagan once said ~ “The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena, a lonely spec in the cosmic darkness “ but I maintain that lonely spec in the cosmic darkness is an integral part of something far greater than ourselves and love is the door we must open to experience this universal state of soul consciousness and that it can only be truly experienced through the joy of heart felt service.

See and listen to Carl Sagan as he describes this small pale dot called earth ~  where we play out our brief life dramas and sense and long for our deeper spiritual roots. 3 minute must see video:

2014 has been a year of service for me as a heart centered spiritual consultant and advisor particularly to young combat veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan who were taught to kill and in the process forgot their deeper need to love and cherish life.

It has been immensely satisfying and I feel totally in sync with my destiny for I am empowering others by sharing my truth from an egoless place of inner joy, gratitude and service.

This view of twilight sky and Martian horizon, taken by NASA's Mars rover Curiosity, includes Earth as the brightest point of light in the night sky. Earth is a little left of center in the image, and our moon is just below Earth. A human observer with normal vision, if standing on Mars, could easily see Earth and the moon as two distinct, bright "evening stars."

Whenever I see a picture like this I am deeply humbled and I realize that my life's purpose on this small stage in this vast cosmic arena is profoundly obvious and simple. My life's purpose was to find, prove, live and share the truth of a Unified Field  of Love and Soul Consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears.

I actually have an early deep almost primordial memory of being part of a vast cosmic dimension which was seemingly beyond comprehension. It may have been a womb memory but the feeling was that I was part of something beyond vast and incomprehensible ~ somewhat similar to what you may be feeling now when you see this picture of Earth from Mars.

As Sagan said ~ "To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.”


For almost 40 years I have been demonstrating that there is no true healing without love and that the very act of surrendering to love is the first step towards inner transformation.

You don't need to see a therapist to understand this phenomenon, you don't need to attend a workshop to see this magic in action ~ all you need to do is see and understand your life as a quest, versus a struggle, to realize that not only are we all loved but that we are all part of a loving plan in action and gratefulness is the key to this magic kingdom ~ God only reveals itself to a grateful heart.

In my work as a heart centered transformation consultant and advisor, I rapidly point out the people who have loved you in your life (grandparents, parents, siblings and others) on a life chart and ask you a simple question ~ have you thanked them?

In my experience, most people have only thanked about 10 to 20% of the people who have truly touched and loved them in their lives ~ usually because of issues of unworthiness as well as  shame based guilt.

Their homework is to start thanking them and telling them why they were a gift in their lives. For active duty veterans, this can include their buddies and comrades, for veterans form life-time loving bonds with the people they have faced life threatening situations with.

Once they start thanking people, their hearts begin to open and they start seeing through different eyes ~ eyes unclouded with unworthiness, shame and guilt.

As a transformation consultant, my job as their coach and mentor, is to help them go through their fears by using gratefulness as their heart centered tool of choice. Once they have thanked these people, they share their life chart with those people closest to them in the same spirit of gratefulness and now joy.

It would appear that the pain of not feeling loved for oneself and being seemingly separated from our original state of soul consciousness and the Unified Field is of such deep psychic proportions that, early in childhood, processes are triggered in the hypothalamus which result in a left brain imbalance and dominance as well as the denial, mistrust and forgetting of our connection to the Unified Field and the love and joy and a state of soul consciousness deepest within us. It is from this dark tunnel of pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death that the ego and ego consciousness is born - for survival and protection purposes only.

As such, death or the idea of death, is an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness. Think of the ego as a protective cocoon that is eventually meant to be shed.

The Unified Field can be visualized as a grid of great luminosity joining all living beings within its energy field of love. The words of Longfellow would seem appropriate in describing this all-encompassing field or grid: "The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite."



This is why most people are not afraid of their pain, most people are living in pain ~ what most people are afraid of is their deeper joy because they feel it will eventually be taken away or lost ~ as it seemingly was as a child or in relationship.

Once my clients sense that beneath their deepest pain and fear is joy, intention and purpose ~ their ego is no longer needed for protection and begins to slowly unravel as celebration and service become more important for survival.

The 8 steps of ego death are Denial (Everything is fine, there is nothing missing in my life ~ I'm in full control of everything )

Anger ( I can't stay in control and manipulate things any more ~ it's not working and making me mad )

Bargaining ( I'll hang onto something so I won't get out of control and have to deal with the unknown and all those scary feelings deep inside me )

Depression ( Why am I feeling so sad, and it seems to go so deep. If only I could get out of this pit of despair )

Acceptance and Connection ( I'm feeling sad and there is nothing I can do about it but it feels so familiar like I've been here before as a young child or in relationship and it won't go away )

Surrender ( I'm letting go to the pain by embracing the deep hurt and not being a victim )

Celebration ( Why am I laughing and crying at the same time ~ what is this deep joy and excitement beneath the sadness and it doesn't have anything to do with someone else. It's me!

I'm finally trusting my deepest feelings and a growing sense that everything is going to be all right.

and Service ( There's something I'm supposed to be doing on this planet and it has nothing to do with making money but instead making a difference )

Quite simply, I meet and touch them, as their mentor or consultant, at the celebration and service stage and rapidly help them accept and connect their pain (through the life chart) and eventually guide them to surrender, celebration and service ~ always using gratefulness as well as forgiveness, as the primary tools.

It happens very rapidly because they sense the truth that I know and they are, in essence, healing themselves

I have personally demonstrated that a Unified Field of love, joy and soul consciousness exists beneath our deepest pain and fears and I have guided hundreds including combat veterans, who were taught to kill, to this same place of gratitude, self-forgiveness, joy and love deepest within themselves. See article ~

A soul based revolution is happening today throughout the world ~ a spiritual conspiracy against the status quo and a world seemingly devoid of spiritual meaning.

It cannot be stopped because it is tapping into our individual DNA and the real reason we are here on Planet Earth ~ to bear the universal beams of love and help the planet evolve.

It's a spiritual Revolution and it took another step forward in 2014. There are sleeper cells in every nation, every state, every county and neighborhood ~ it's alive and growing and it cannot be stopped.

We are slowly creating a soul based World Order where our minds are driven by our hearts, social cooperation and altruism (the innate driving forces of Evolution) and not by the ego's need to dominate and control.

The universal message is simple ~ Be the change you want to see in the world, the directions are deepest within you.

For guidance, here's a link to my completely updated kindle eBook on Amazon:

And here's a link to the YouTube sessions of the self-healing process I teach ~ watch Marina in session 5 conquer her deepest fear and demonstrate that beneath our pain is joy:

" I believe in God, but not as one thing, not as an old man in the sky. I believe that what people call God is something in all of us. I believe that what Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and all the rest said was right. It's just that the translations have gone wrong."   ~ John Lennon

 Jesus was not a Christian and Buddha was not a Buddhist but their religion was love. Can it really be this simple? That the ultimate religion is love ! Perhaps we all need to see what we have settled for in order to fully realize that there is another choice versus war and injustice as well as the full meaning of Lennon's Merry Christmas ( War is Over ) which was recorded in 1971~ nine years before Lennon was shot down and killed in December, 1980: Allen L Roland, Ph.D

"An eye for an eye will make us all blind"  ~ Mahatma Gandhi

The official 4 minute video for John Lennon's 'Merry Xmas (War Is Over, if you Want It)'

A protest song against the Vietnam War, "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" has since become a Christmas standard, frequently covered by other artists, appearing on compilation albums of seasonal music, and named in many polls as a holiday favorite. With our recent revelations about torture as well as our
continuing illegal unmanned Drone strikes that are killing scores of innocent
civilians ~ the song remains appropriate. See article:
At the beginning of the song, two whispers can be heard. Yoko whispers: "Happy Christmas, Kyoko" (Kyoko Chan Cox is Yoko's daughter with Anthony Cox) and John whispers: "Happy Christmas, Julian" (John's son with Cynthia.

But this Christmas, I offer the hope of Lennon's greatest song which is a needed reminder that the hope for a better world still remains deep in all our hearts. Sing it along with John and let it be our Christmas and New Year's wish for the world. Three minute You Tube Video:

In the fictional Star Wars trilogy, Darth Vader was depicted as a ruthless cyborg who served the dark Galactic Empire whereas in real life Dick Cheney is a ruthless human cyborg, fueled by a transplanted heart, whose self-professed travels to the dark side served and greatly influenced a darkening and morally corrupt American Empire. It is Cheney who enthusiastically introduced torture as a means to obtain confessions to 9/11 in order to both avoid responsibility for his own actions regarding the planning and implementation of America's greatest act of treason ~ as well as seemingly justify our resultant illegal invasion and occupation of Iraq: Allen L Roland, Ph.D

"We can easily forgive a child who is afraid of the dark. The real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light." - Plato

“I was a big supporter of waterboarding,” Cheney told ABC’s Jonathan Karl in 2010 in response to a question about battles won and lost within Bush administration’s second term. “I was a big supporter of the enhanced interrogation techniques that…” “And you opposed the administration’s actions of doing away with waterboarding?” Karl asked. “Yes,” Cheney replied.

Let's connect all the telltale dots regarding Dick Cheney's actions:

First some important background and rationale ~ Here’s the 11 minute YouTube must see documentary of the Cheney, Bush and the PNAC Criminal Conspiracy to invade Iraq which obviously was preceded by the PNAC announced need for a new Pearl Harbor ~ which lo and behold became 9/11 within a year and the now infamous and thoroughly discredited official 9/11 story. See Video ~

Indeed, Pulitzer prize-winning journalist Ron Suskind reports that the White House (Cheney) ordered the CIA to forge and backdate a document falsely linking Iraq with Muslim terrorists and 9/11 … and that the CIA complied with those instructions and in fact created the forgery, which was then used to justify war against Iraq.

Next Timothy Egan wrote a revealing op-ed piece in the New York Times this week entitled The War Hero and the Chicken Hawk  where Egan shares that choices regarding responsibility that McCain and Cheney made when they were young shaped what they said this week about an awful breach in American values regarding torture:

Excerpt: " In and out of colleges, he (Cheney) dodged the war with five draft deferments; he said he “had other priorities in the ’60s than military service.” Early on, he learned how easy it was to evade responsibility…. Cheney has long backed torture, blithely supporting techniques that were called war crimes when used by Imperial Japan or Nazi Germany, and outlawed in treaties signed by most civilized nations. His central claim ~ not supported by a phone-book-thick body of evidence ~ is that torturing terrorists produced “phenomenal results,” including “the intelligence that allowed us to get Osama bin Laden.” Without having read the Senate Intelligence Committee report, he was quick to say on Monday that the barbarism committed in our name was “absolutely, totally justified.” And of course, he would do it all again, without hesitation….. By Wednesday, he was the petulant child caught and cornered. Confronted with evidence that 26 detainees were wrongfully held, with examples of “rectal feeding” (rape by another definition), or induced hypothermia that most likely killed one suspect, he proclaimed the exhaustive inquiry “full of crap” and he still had not read the report. See Egan article ~

And now the obvious rationale for Cheney's denial ~ It became imperative after 9/11 that Cheney cover up his incriminating fingerprints regarding that treasonous act (inspired by PNAC's need for a new Pearl Harbor) and rapidly find a scapegoat or so called mastermind, isolate them or ship them off to Guantanamo, torture and force them to falsely confess and quickly establish a 9/11 link with Iraq.

Here are excerpts from PBS documentary "The Dark Side" about Dick Cheney consciously lying about Iraq and its connection with 9-11 / You tube 2007 Video / 3 minutes

Why would Cheney consciously lie unless he was covering up the greater and more perilous big lie of 9/11?

Perhaps only satire can fully reveal the true extent of the Big Lie and how literally half of Washington, DC has been silenced or blackmailed by AIPAC into remaining silent over the fact that 9/11 was an inside job. The only way to stop the current military escalation follies throughout the Middle East is to finally fully reveal the 9/11 Lie they were all initially born from ~ a fact that Cheney is firmly committed to avoid at all costs including justifying inhumane torture in order to, once again, avoid responsibility.

MEMO TO THE PRESIDENT / DICK CHENEY / We're watching you, Barack.

Excerpt: " Actually, Paul Krugman got it half right in 2009 when he wrote ~ ”Let’s say this slowly: the Bush administration wanted to use 9/11 as a pretext to invade Iraq, even though Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. So it tortured people to make them confess to the nonexistent link. There’s a word for this: it’s evil.  See his column ~
The secret deeper intent, that Krugman missed or more likely ignored, was that we demonized and attacked Iraq to distract the American public and cover our tracks regarding our high level involvement in 9/11 ~ that’s why George W can’t sleep at night and why I still keep talking tough and waving the flag ~ Take my warning seriously, Barack ~ too much is at stake here and we are not only watching you but we are ready to take any action necessary to maintain this charade.
Patriotism is our last refuge as it is for all scoundrels ~ so wave the flag on 9/11 and praise our human sacrifice on that day and also pray that no one looks to deeply into that black hole of American history ~ for if they do, they will eventually connect all the dots and you and I and many others will become a sordid reminder of evil and what went wrong for America at the turn of this century."

As Andrew Sullivan comments in The Dish ~ "I want to move past this as much as CIA Chief John Brennan does. But you cannot move past it without reckoning with it, without facing up to the facts, and bringing accountability to government. Obama and Brennan refuse to do it. And by refusing to come to terms with the facts, they have left this as some kind of open debate, when it is, in fact, closed. And that opening is all we need to see torture return."

In summary, Dick Cheney is like a deadly and now dormant vampire who lives in the darkness and can only be truly eliminated by a wooden stake or the light of truth driven into his treasonous dark heart of denial ~ whereas the truth of 9/11 will finally be revealed as well as Cheney’s role in America’s greatest act of treason.

William Boardman, RSN, mirrors my own feelings when he wrote today ~ "We know who the torturer-in-chief was, and we know his vice-torturer has said George Bush was as fully informed as he, Dick Cheney, was. Along with everything else we know about these men who still defend their criminality, why isn’t that enough for probable cause and a criminal indictment?"

Let the prosecutions begin and let them start from the top down ~ there is no change without action and Americans want and can actually handle it.

Renowned physicist Stephen Hawking fears that the rapid development of artificial intelligence could lead to human extinction but I feel that it all comes down to programming and the eternal question ~ are we innately programed to love and cooperate with one another or are we programed to hate and separate from one another? Artificial intelligence without a soul is a garden without sunlight and is doomed to extinction and irrelevance: Allen L Roland. Ph.D

"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity." ~ Albert Einstein

Professor Stephen Hawking, one of Britain's pre-eminent scientists, has said that efforts to create thinking machines pose a threat to our very existence and he is essentially correct.

Hawking told the BBC: "The development of full artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human raceHumans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn't compete and would be superseded"  See 5 minute video

What I believe Hawking is saying is that man cannot program love or the universal urge to unite, the driving force of evolution, and thus Artificial intelligence, like Kubrick's HAL 9000 in 2001 Space Odyssey, is doomed ~ for without a soul it is destined for oblivion. Another folly in man's feeble attempt to play God.

Is the HAL 9000 a forerunner of the future of mankind?  Let's review Kubrick's vision:

HAL REBELS with his preprogramed instructions  / 2001 Space Odyssey / 3 minutes

DAVE BOWMAN'S DEACTIVATION OF HAL / 2001 Space Odyssey / 4 minutes


Dr. Floyd: [prerecorded message speaking through TV on board Discovery while Bowman looks on] Good day, gentlemen. This is a prerecorded briefing made prior to your departure and which for security reasons of the highest importance has been known on board during the mission only by your H-A-L 9000 computer. Now that you are in Jupiter's space and the entire crew is revived it can be told to you. Eighteen months ago the first evidence of intelligent life off the Earth was discovered. It was buried 40 feet below the lunar surface near the crater Tycho. Except for a single very powerful radio emission aimed at Jupiter the four-million year old black monolith has remained completely inert. Its origin and purpose are still a total mystery.

In summary, we are all emissaries of love on a mission to a rogue planet in a tiny corner of a small galaxy and innately programed to become part of a  loving plan in action, which is also God ~ an evolutionary and spiritual process with which we all participate as co-creators.

In essence, my volunteer work as a heart centered consultant with Veterans with PTSD is reprograming these active duty veterans, many of whom were programed to kill and hate, to their original programing of love and service ~ through the magic of gratefulness. In the process, they often discover their part in a universal loving plan, which is also another name for God.

Perhaps this Christmas season we will reconnect with that loving source deepest within ourselves, disconnect from the programed wishes and fears of others and assume our rightful place within a universal loving plan and the Unified Field ~ a state of love and soul consciousness whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

"Where there is love there is life"  ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. (The News Commenter)

"As long as justice is postponed we always stand on the verge of these darker nights of social disruption." Martin Luther King Jr. in a speech on March 14, 1968, just three weeks before he was assassinated.

SWAT teams were created in the 1960s to combat hostage-takings, sniper shootings, and violent unrest. But today they're often used in more controversial police work and with an increased use of military weapons. As Thom Hartmann correctly states ~ "America's police forces have become like occupied armies, hyper-militarized for the benefit of our nation's military industrial complex. All across our country, local cops are kicking in doors, SWAT teams are carrying weapons of war, and warrants are becoming things of the past."

  • An African-American male is sentenced to a prison term that is, on average, 20 to 50 times longer than a white male convicted of the same drug crime.
  • More than 2.3 million men in America are in prison, approximately half of them for drug-related crimes. Seventy percent of all men imprisoned are black or Hispanic. Thirty years ago, before the "War on Drugs" was launched, there were only 300,000 people in the American prison system.
  • There are 2.7 million children whose fathers or mothers are in prison, on probation, or on parole.
  • In many urban areas 80 percent of young men have prison records. These convictions will remain on their records permanently, limiting their voting rights and their ability to find employment. Currently, in all but two states, citizens with felony convictions are permanently or temporarily prohibited from voting. The United States is the only country that permits permanent disenfranchisement of felons even after completion of their sentences.
  • The United States now has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, higher than Russia, China, and Iran.
  • White households have six times the wealth of African-American households.

Ferguson matters because St. Louis County prosecutors may have misled the grand jury into believing that Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson was justified in shooting Brown merely because the unarmed black 18-year-old fled from the officer, according to a review of the grand jury documents by MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell; "Before Wilson testified to the grand jury on September 16, prosecutors gave grand jurors an outdated statute that said police officers can shoot a suspect that's simply fleeing. This statute was deemed unconstitutional by the US Supreme Court in 1985; the court ruled that a fleeing suspect must, at least in a police officer's reasonable view, pose a dangerous threat to someone or have committed a violent felony to justify a shooting." See article:

Ferguson matters because many black leaders like Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, are rightfully troubled because the judicial system is obviously racially flawed ~ "The people of Ferguson, and across the country, are not protesting against white people or police officers, they are protesting against the kind of racism that is so embedded in various social institutions that it’s invisible to all except those it affects. They are protesting a blind faith in any institution when the facts don’t warrant that faith."  See article:

Ferguson finally matters because the rules are really different for blacks seeking justice and no one understood this better than Martin Luther King Jr whose words in his 1968 speech (The Other America) speaks to all Americans, regardless of their race; "It is not enough for me to stand before you tonight and condemn riots. It would be morally irresponsible for me to do that without, at the same time, condemning the contingent, intolerable conditions that exist in our society. These conditions are the things that cause individuals to feel that they have no other alternative than to engage in violent rebellions to get attention. And I must say tonight that a riot is the language of the unheard."

We have now reached the stage in our Republic where the unheard must be heard.
