RIP / YOGI BERRA, 1925-2015


Since I grew up in Boston, in the 1940's and 1950's as a firm Yankee hater and a rabid Red Sox fan ~ Yogi Berra was always the enemy along with Joe DiMaggio, Whitey Ford and countless other Yankee greats that broke my young heart every baseball season ~ but Yogi was in a class by himself. In some strange way, I felt Yogi did not belong in lofty Yankee pin stripes and his gentle soul and humanness, as revealed by his classic truisms, endeared him to both myself and millions of fans as one of the greatest Yankees and most beloved icons in the game of baseball: Allen L Roland, PhD

Yogi still holds Series records for games played, plate appearances, hits and doubles. No other player has been a champion so often. In this Oct. 6, 1950, photograph, Philadelphia Phillies shortstop Granny Hamner was tagged out at the plate by Berra as he tried to score from third in the ninth inning of Game 3 of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. The umpire is Dusty Boggess.

"You should always go to other people's funerals; otherwise they won't come to yours."

"Baseball is 90% mental, the other half is physical"

"You've got to be careful if you don't know where you're going, because you might end up someplace else." 

"I never make predictions, especially about the future"

"Only in America " ~ Upon hearing that the mayor of Dublin was Jewish

"I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hittin' "

"I want to thank everybody for making this day necessary."

"Ninety percent of the game is half mental."

"If you can’t imitate him, don’t copy him."

"I can’t think and hit at the same time."

Living my dream as a high altitude interceptor

Having the courage to live my dreams started with becoming a Navy supersonic carrier pilot and then eventually surrendering to love, facing my deepest fears and falling through a black hole of despair and unworthiness to a place of timeless love, joy, intention, purpose as well as the growing awareness of a great truth, the Unified Field, which I was destined to prove, share and then live and share in my work as a spiritual counselor and consultant: Allen L Roland, PhD

Marcy Borders buried in toxic dust  on Sept. 11, 2001 / Credit Stan Honda/Agence France-Presse

It's been 14 years since 9/11 but the dust has not yet settled on this auspicious event nor has it left the pages of the infamous and discredited official 9/11 Report. The 9/11 Dust Lady Marcy Borders just died from stomach cancer and complications which could be traced to 9/11 and she was only 42 years old. Thorough analysis of the 9/11 dust appears to confirm the theory that the towers imploded and that energetic materials were used to destroy the towers which ties in with well-established government sanctioned collapse theories. It is becoming increasingly obvious that the 9/11 dust will not settle until the full 9/11 truth emerges: Allen L Roland, PhD  


“The second anniversary opened an internal crack in Sonia, a fissure through which she released the explosive feeling that had horrified her for two years. The conflagration that had burned so many, that had pushed people into the open air, onto the ledges from which they jumped, some of them on fire, had left its unspeakable images inside my niece. ...Sonia didn't want a world in which buildings fell down and wars were fought for no reason.”  ~ Siri Hustvedt, The Sorrows of an American


Ms. Marcy Borders was an employee of Bank of America in 2001, and was working on the 81st floor of the north tower of the World Trade Center on the day of the attacks and was eventually led downstairs and into a neighboring building by another person, where this picture was taken by photographer Stan Honda of Agence France-Presse   

She described her experience in a video interview published by the filmmaker Mike McGregor three years ago. See  2 minute video   plus attached 29 minute World Trade Center best actual time 9/11 film footage I have ever seen.

“We had no idea what was going on,” she said of the plane’s impact. “The way the building was shaking, I couldn’t sit there.”

In the chaos that followed, Ms. Borders retreated to a crowded stairwell where she was chased by a cloud of smoke and dust.

“Every time I inhaled, my mouth filled up with it, I was choking,” she said. “I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face. I was just saying to myself and saying out loud that I didn’t want to die.”

After surviving 9/11 Ms. Borders struggled with alcohol and drugs dependency, losing custody of her children.

“I didn’t care about myself or anyone else. I couldn’t deal with life. I had become a garbage can. I dropped to around 90 lb. My life wasn’t getting any better. I wanted to end it,” she told The Times around the same time.

Following a stint in rehabilitation in 2011 she remained sober. She was diagnosed with cancer in 2014 and started a course of treatment.

Writing on Facebook, her cousin John Borders, said she “unfortunately succumbed to the disease that (have) ridden her body since 9/11…. In addition to losing so many friends, co-workers, and colleagues on and after that tragic day, the pains from yesteryear (have) found a way to resurface, he wrote.


By 2008, if not earlier, the most detailed and comprehensive analysis of World Trade Center dust had been published by a group of independent researchers including physicist Steven P. Jones and chemist Kevin Ryan. Combining data from earlier published studies with results from experiments on dust samples they had obtained, these scientists found both the apparent products of aluminothermic pyrotechnics and unexploded fragments of such pyrotechnics. These researchers also examined published data on the emissions of gases from Ground Zero, and supplied straightforward hypotheses, consistent with the view that energetic materials were used to destroy the complex, for observations that were highly anomalous within the context of the government-sanctioned collapse theory.

The league of Scoundrels

 Isn't it interesting on that auspicious day that there was time taken to take these photographs of top administration officials, including Bush, Cheney, Rice, Tenant and Powell reacting to this crisis ~ when in reality they may well have been thinking how do we cover up our role in this treasonous act of an administration that was obviously bent on war and would soon be attacking the sovereign state of Iraq for a well-orchestrated lie and further sacrificing countless civilian lives as needless collateral damage for their neocon ambitions. 3 minute video ~

We have all been bamboozled by the great lie of 9/11 and it continues to this day,14 years later.

Everyone has been infected by it; illegal wars have been justified, torture has been condoned and our moral values have plummeted as the great lie persists.

Hitler perfected the great lie in the 1930's and his primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it.

But the dust has not settled on 9/11 and it is the spirit of people like Marcy Borders, who refused to stay at her desk as instructed, and scrambled to safety from the North Tower on that fateful day in 2001 ~ that serve as a reminder that the truth of 9/11 will eventually emerge from the dust and that justice will triumph.

Here are 50 amazing quotes regarding the truths of 9/11 ~ 9 minute video

Einstein's famous equation E=mc2 means the Energy within matter equals its mass multiplied by the speed of light squared ~ but Einstein was just scratching the surface of our limited consciousness for we immediately used this equation to create nuclear bombs and the means to completely destroy humankind. But now let us apply this same equation to a formula which will release the energy of a universal love, deepest within ourselves, which will lead us instead to our ultimate fulfillment and destiny as human beings as well as become a working formula for world peace: Allen L Roland, PhD
"This year (2015) marks the 70th anniversaries of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The survivors of those bombings, the hibakusha, have been outspoken in their calls to abolish nuclear weapons so that their past does not become someone else’s future. Every year, every day, that this advice is not heeded, increases the danger to the human future. This is a legal issue but it is also a moral issue, a security issue and, ultimately, a spiritual issue. Humankind must step back from the nuclear abyss now, before it is too late" : Richard Falk, an international relations scholar, professor emeritus of international law at Princeton University, author, co-author or editor of 40 books, and a speaker and activist on world affairs.


The only way we can fully step back from the nuclear abyss, as Falk suggests, is to recognize that decision is ultimately a spiritual decision ~ so let me offer that spiritual solution by breathing fire into Einstein's most famous mathematical equation ( E=mc2 ) and apply to a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness whose principle property is the universal urge to unite and it lies deepest within ourselves.
E = Universal Unconditional love, the ultimate totalization of human energy ( the Unified Field )
M = Man, the most complex and conscious form of matter that we know.
C2 = Consciousness squared.
Thus, the energy of conscious unconditional love, which is deepest within all living matter, is equal to Man's consciousness squared ~ and is one in the same with the near and after death experience, both of which I have experienced.
Dr. Eben Alexander, in his bestselling book Proof of Heaven writes about his near death experience and says the same thing ~ in essence, Eben says it’s all about love;
Proof of Heaven,  p. 71 ~ “If I had to boil this entire message down to one sentence, it would run this way: “You are loved.”  And if I had to boil it down further, to just one word, it would (of course) be simply: Love. Love is without doubt, the basis of everything.  Not some abstract, hard-to-fathom kind of love, but the day-to-day kind that everyone knows – the kind of love we feel when we look at our spouse and our children, or even our animals.  In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jealous or selfish, but unconditional.  This is the reality of realities, the incomprehensibly glorious truth of truths that lives and breathes at the core of everything that exists or that ever will exist, and no remotely accurate understanding of who and what we are can be achieved by anyone who does not know it, and embody it in all of their actions.  Not much of a scientific insight?  Well, I beg to differI’m back from that place, and nothing could convince me that this is not only the single most important scientific truth as well.”  See 3 minute video ~
Dr John Hagelin. one of the world's leading pioneers of theoretical physics also believes the Unified Field is a state of consciousness ~ as he states in the 1959 issue of Mind-Body Connection;
"If you scratch below the surface and get to the molecular atomic and sub-atomic worlds, you find that these worlds are not material worlds. They are worlds of intelligence and ultimately worlds of consciousness"
For decades, physicists, scientists and dreamers have been looking for the elusive Unified field, a grand unified field in which all the forces of nature would be a condition of state.
The British physicist Steven Hawking, regarded by many as today's successor to Einstein, writes in Black Holes and Baby Universes of 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 Unified Field of love and soul consciousness is so compelling that it does bring about its own existence ~ because it is deepest within us all.  It is also the plasma of the universe and our lives are a quest to reunite with this spring of love, joy and soul consciousness deepest within us ~ which constantly pulls on us when we surrender to love.
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.
But it's only simple and special if you surrender to love which I most certainly did with the after death experiences with my mother and twin brother as well as falling through the rabbit hole of psychic pain when I let go of a love relationship in the 1960's and reached a place of inner knowing and soul consciousness as well as finding my authentic voice ~ but the tipping point came on the verge of crashing after a catapult shot on the USS Ranger in 1960 with no options for survival except letting go and surrender ~ which I did and in the process experienced the longest split second of my life as well as the timeless experience and clarity of soul consciousness. See the Final Option ~
As a result I have spent the last 40 years writing about the Unified Field and demonstrating it in my heart centered soul retrieval work especially with combat veterans with PTSD.
My specific lifetime passion has been to demonstrate that beneath our deepest pain and fear is a spring of joy and our innate connection to another world of love and soul consciousness.
In other words, I have demonstrated that the singularity at the center of a black hole, where time and space come to an end, parallels the singularity within each one of us that leads us from our darkness and despair into the brilliant light of another world of love and soul consciousness that is the very essence of our being. See my recent article ~
Science has reached a void or dead end unless it acknowledges sensory experience, love and the universal urge to unite ~ even within the molecule itself. No one describes this rational scientific impasse more graphically than Lincoln Barnett in his book The Universe and Dr Einstein;
"A theoretical concept is emptied of content to the very 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."
In his many books, Teilhard de Chardin provided the needed bridge of what we can see and the unseen world of soul consciousness: "What name should we gave.. (to that) to which all activities displayed by the stuff of the universe are finally reduced? Only one name is possible: love. The physical structure of the universe is love."
Unlike Einstein, Teilhard clearly grasped the fact that the attractive force of love must necessarily rule at the atomic level of the universe or else love could not appear at higher levels of consciousness ~ " If there were no real propensity to unite, indeed in the molecule itself,"  he wrote, "it would be physically impossible for love to appear higher up in the hominized or human form."
Carl Jung, also sensed a parallel between theoretical physics and depth psychology. This inspired his efforts to probe the deepest regions of his own psyche, as well as that of others, in search of a unifying source of energy and a causal theory of synchronicity comparable to Einstein's theory of relativity.
Teilhard clearly defined this all unifying source of energy as love and I have built on these three giants to demonstrate that this Unified Field of soul consciousness exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears ~ and thus my Unified Field PhD Dissertation in 1998.
"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": Allen L Roland, PhD
The inner shift in consciousness is already happening!
I see it every day particularly in my consulting work with Combat veterans with PTSD who have been to the dark side and long for another life enhancing choice versus anger and hatred.
At precisely 8:15 AM on August 6th,1945 ~ 200,000 people instantly and eventually died from an Atomic Bomb dropped by the United States on Japan and our world permanently changed, for at that moment man had discovered the ultimate means to destroy ourselves. I remember that day well, for I was eleven years old at that time ~ but I could still sense the psychological impact of that mass destruction of human life.
But now, 70 years later, we are still learning the intellectual and soul based moral bearings needed to control the fearsome murderous beast we unleashed on Hiroshima and then three days later on Nagasaki.
Perhaps now we are ready to go deeper within ourselves and fully experience the life sustaining choice of love, social cooperation and altruism which are the innate driving forces of evolution as well the Unified Field ~ and our only true choice of behavior which will lead to the survival of our species
With the eventual establishment of this scientific formula and spiritual truth the world will make a quantum leap towards achieving world peace.
Lincoln Barnett wrote of the true significance of this moment in time ~ " The great philosophical triumph of any Unified Field Theory is implicit in the first word of its title. For 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 to 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 is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness (the Unified Field) wherein love, not light, is the one constant of the universe and the urge to unite is its principle property.  
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience ~ we are spiritual beings having a human experience"  Teilhard de Chardin
