From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo October 2006
So much has happened in the past year or so; so much has been crammed into so little time! Yes, my old friend, TIME, continues to play with me…stopping and then starting again; expanding and contracting; rapidly slowing down and then, just when you least expect it, shifting and accelerating, jumping forward and then backwards; although it does seem that most recently it has been the acceleration…the pedal to the metal…full steam ahead, that has been TIME'S method of choice to play with all of us!
To top it all off, the instances of déjà vu have been fascinating and incredible. As I write this, I'm in Bluemont, Virginia at The Center Of Consciousness, preparing to present a course on October 28th and 29th. I've been here since the 19th, deciding to come early to participate in an event over the weekend…The Wise Women's Festiv-ALL…with Karla and Chris (Center owner and manager) and spend some time in this woodsy, mountainous, peaceful, serene, creative setting. This place is definitely conducive to writing and other creative endeavors.
From the moment I arrived at Dulles International, the déjà vu kicked in. Karla picked me up in her sleek little two-seater Thunderbird convertible; me with my four pieces of luggage and she with no trunk space! We left the airport and headed for Bluemont with two pieces of luggage barely fitting in the trunk, another somehow lodged behind the seats and the fourth piece…well, that was an over-stuffed, folded in half garment bag riding on my lap, with which I was becoming much too familiar! Déjà vu…all of it…the car, the luggage, the conversation, the traffic…even the familiarity with the garment bag!
It has continued on, this déjà vu; the St. Louis Cardinals winning the National League Championship on Thursday night (Yes, I am an avid Cardinal baseball fan!), dinner at Chris' on Friday night, the Festiv-ALL over the weekend, the Cardinals winning game one of the 2006 World Series over the American League Champion Detroit Tigers, Saturday night and losing game two on Sunday night; even as I sit here early this morning, pounding on the computer and writing about déjà vu, I am experiencing déjà vu. This has all happened before! I have lived this before/already!
We know, of course, that TIME is not really linear but that in order to play this game, we must have the perception that it is. My truth says that Past, Present and Future exist simultaneously. Now, don't ask me how this can be, how this is accomplished or why this is my truth. I Don't Know! It just resonates with me and I cannot explain it. If anyone who is reading this has the definitive answer about this, please let me know. What I can tell you is that one of the best visualizations of Past, Present and Future existing simultaneously comes from Neale Donald Walsh, in his Conversations With God, Book I. He says (and I will paraphrase) that if you will view TIME as perpendicular rather than linear, it may bring you some clarity.
Try this. Visualize your linear time line. Now, draw a line perpendicular to it. You are finished with the linear time line for now. Picture the perpendicular line…the new time line…as a thin metal spike of sorts, pointed on the top end. On a slip of paper in front of you, is an event. Take that piece of paper, puncture it with the point of the spike and slide it down to the base of your perpendicular spike. Do the same with the next and the next and the next, etc. Now you have a series of events stacked up, one on top of the other, all occurring simultaneously.
Considering where we are as Humans, right here, right now, in our physical and spiritual evolution, complete with the illusion of the thinning of the veil, what we have is not only the potential for déjà vu but also the potential for multi-dimensional bleed through, which, for all intents and purposes, are two sides of the same coin. View it however you wish and call it what you will…déjà vu, multi-dimensional bleed through (and some may call it just plain nuts-o-phrenia!)…it is happening much more often and at a much more accelerated pace than ever before. Many of you are having this experience more and more, just as I have been and continue to have, at an ever-increasing rate over the past few years.
All I can really suggest to you is to have fun with it, use it to help you when you can and enjoy the ride. If any of you are having increased similar experiences, drop me an email from wherever you are on the planet. I'd love to hear from you.
Until next time, thank you for being here, thank you for allowing me the opportunity to express my flavor of the truth for your discernment and thank you for your TIME!
and Pack Light!

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™ October 2006 Installment # 44
Dearest Warriors Of The Light…
Practical Spirituality…The Next
WE ARE THE MANY, WE ARE ONE and you are HOME. HOME is not only your location, it is who you are. The energy for which you so desperately long…the energy of HOME…it is you; it is your energy; again, it is who you are. You are always HOME, no matter who or where you think you are, no matter what game you are playing, no matter the perceived location of the game, no matter what form you choose for which to play the game and even if you choose no form at all to play these magnificent games of make believe and pretend, you are always HOME. You have heard repeatedly that The Kingdom Of Heaven Is Within. Well, The Kingdom Of Heaven Is INDEED, Within but beyond that, YOU ARE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, each one of you; YOU ARE THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN!
Simply speaking, if you can view HOME as The Context or The Container, then you, we, the planet, all the planets, and everything and everyone in them and on them, for example, would be The Content. As The Content learns, grows and expands, so does The Context…HOME…learn, grow and expand, to accommodate The Content. Conversely, as The Context learns, grows and expands, so does The Content, each supporting the other in learning, growth and expansion.
Taking it one step farther, since we are all one and as such, we ARE the All That Is, then we are both Context and Content. Being both Context and Content is a rather unique position in which to be. What else is there?
There are some who believe that a piece of God…or a piece of whomever they recognize as their higher power…resides inside of them. There are others who believe that they are each a piece of God. Know this: A piece of God resides inside of you only if this is what resonates with you and this is what you choose to believe. In addition, you are a piece of God only if this is what resonates with you and this is what you choose to believe. The bottom line is that YOU ARE EACH THE WHOLE OF GOD…Each One Of You…and you are each playing the most magnificent game of Make Believe and Pretend that has ever been played in the infinite history of the All That Is. Our suggestion to you would be to choose whichever one of these truly works for you or, just make something up that does work for you.
Now, being the Context and Content/the All That Is/THE WHOLE OF GOD, it would be impossible for you to NOT be HOME, hence, you are not only always HOME…You Are HOME! Hmmm…I am the All That Is; you are the All That Is; she is the All That Is; he is the All That Is; they are the All That Is…hey, it sounds like a party! Let's have some fun…and that is just how this game began.
What a magnificent charade you play…this idea of creating the illusion of separation and then becoming what you call spiritually enlightened, so that you can step into what you call unity consciousness, creating Heaven on Earth, HOME on your side of the veil. You have already created Heaven on Earth. This IS HOME on your side of the veil. You are living it right here, right now, through the game you are playing. You set it all up because you thought it would be fun and you know, it can be. Yes, it can be fun, especially when you begin to view it in the spirit (no pun intended!) in which you set it all up.
There is really nothing to learn. You know it all, although you are pretending not to know and when that which is all reaches a new level, you already know it because it is you; and it is you who takes it to the next level, to begin with.
Just for a moment, stretch, take a few deep breaths and let's move on.
Some say that there is a script in your game. They say it is written…alas…it is set in stone; that all things are predestined. Others say that there was a script, but because of the wonderful work that you have all done, you have either erased it or moved past it. Either way, the result is that there is a blank canvass before you, just waiting for you to apply brush and paint and transform the blankness into anything of your choosing. Still others say that there is, indeed, a script and that one can write over whatever has been written, thus changing what may have been a predestined plan.
The truth of the matter is that there is some truth that can be found in all of these and what we tell you now and in a way that is comprehendible to you at this time…is this:
Whoa!!! Hold on a second. There is more. There are only a few basic things in the script. They are the only constants. Everything else may vary, but not these things:
There IS a HOME. It is both where you are and who you are. How you "get there" is up to you. Your path is your choice. There is no right path and no wrong path. EVERYONE EVENTUALLY "WINS" THIS GAME. Nobody "goes" until everybody goes. There IS free choice. The rest is up to you. It is your choice.
So…this script, as you have designed it, has some semblance of structure but it is broad enough and loose enough to allow you to play a fascinating, interesting, fun and powerful game. You have set this up to allow yourselves just enough wiggle room to "hang yourselves" and of course, that is part of the fun, at least that's what you thought when you set it up!
Now, let's take a moment to summarize:
Gathering In Groups
If You and We are One and You and We are all The All That Is, then that means that You and We are always HOME (location), You and We are the energy of HOME, You and We ARE HOME, both the Context and the Content.
We know that many of you love to gather in groups, not just those of you who have labeled yourselves lightworkers, but many others of you who belong to the various religions throughout the world and other kinds of groups and organizations, secretive, mystical and otherwise.
We are not saying that there is anything wrong with gathering in groups, in fact, it can be very powerful. It was the Christed One who said, "When two or more are gathered in my name, I am there also." Who among you would not want Christ with you always and as much as possible, but what we have noticed is that often times, some group members, even of those groups who teach and facilitate self-empowerment, actually turn their power over to the group, the teachings and/or the group leader. It has been happening for hundreds of years.
As recently as forty or so years ago, near the beginning of the New Age/Self Help/Self Improvement Movement, there were a number of personal growth and development companies that began to show up. Although they were teaching this idea of self-empowerment and owning your power and they specifically said that they were not there to take your power from you, nor were they there to allow you to turn your power over to them, in many instances, that is precisely what happened. Some of the participants allowed themselves to be manipulated and they did, indeed, turn their power over. This still goes on today with these kinds of companies but what is really interesting is that it also occurs with the some metaphysical/spiritual groups. We are not saying that this manipulation is always intentional or even known to the manipulator, but it is still happening.
There is something else that we notice about some groups and some group members. They can be exclusionary and can often create separation. It is perfectly okay for a group of bricklayers to exclude a brain surgeon from their group that has bricklaying in common and is about what bricklayers do but it is not really okay for the bricklayers to talk, act or to assume that they are any better than the brain surgeon, especially based on the fact that they are bricklayers and she is a brain surgeon. The metaphysical/spiritual arena is also not exempt from this. What has honestly been your experience?
What we suggest is that as a participant AND/OR as a group leader/facilitator/teacher, take an honest look at your situation and make corrections as needed. Again, we are not saying that gathering in groups is wrong. It Is Not Wrong. We are just suggesting that you keep your eyes open and your awareness sharp.
The main purpose of this discussion about groups is to bring to your attention a very special group. Now, let us remind you again, of what the Christed one said, "When two or more are gathered in my name, I am there also."
The special group of which we speak is none other than YOU! Yes, YOU are a group. There is the Human YOU that equals One and there is the Spirit YOU that also equals One. One and One equals Two; "When two or more are gathered, etc." the Christed One is there also and that makes Three, at least. This is quite the powerful group, wouldn't you agree? We tell you this because it is not always necessary for you to gather in groups of any kind, physically or otherwise, to do or accomplish anything, since You are, in fact, each a group unto yourselves and your group is connected to the next group is connected to the next group is connected to the next group, etc. and WE ARE ONE.
Note From Joe: At this point, there was a hesitation…a communication stoppage, if you will…which was rather unusual. It seemed as though a decision was attempting to be made as to whether to expound further with this thought at this time, or to wait until the next time. This hesitation was kind of uncomfortable because it felt like someone had flipped the communication switch off, but what was really happening, as I was told afterwards, was that "My Group" that is Me…Which Is Connected To And Is A Part Of Every Other Group…THE ONENESS…was having a conversation about what was next and I had somehow created the illusion that I was not a part of my own group and consequently wasn't aware of what was going on. This lasted less than a minute and I was made privy to this immediately, but it was kind of bizarre and it was a wonderful example of how we all, from time to time, or much of the time, as the case may be, cut ourselves off from ourselves, often hinder and/or do not have or have not created a relationship with ourselves.
Interesting! Was that perhaps the whole point of this discussion about groups…to illustrate that we are so powerful that we cannot only separate ourselves from everything and everybody but we can also separate ourselves from ourselves? WOW!!! How often do we all do that? To be sure, this occurs much more often than we imagine…with all of us…and yet, there are some who strongly see this in others but have their eyes closed tight when it comes seeing it in themselves.
WHAT A GLORIOUS GAME!!! We must have all created within and for ourselves the illusion of lunacy when we designed this diversionary amusement activity! Damn, we're good!!!
And Now…back to our regularly scheduled program…
Here is why we bring this piece to you at this time, whether you have heard this before or not. It is not always necessary or possible to physically gather together, to gather together by telephone at a certain time or to gather individually and energetically at a certain time to do whatever it is you want to do as a group, such as meditate, pray for peace, pray for healing, pray for rain, pray for sunshine or pray that your favorite baseball team wins…okay, we're having some fun with that at Joe's expense. You can show up for yourself and by yourself with and as You, your own powerful group, and achieve magnificent things, but also know, as we said before, that your group is connected to the next group is connected to the next group is connected to the next group, etc. and WE ARE ONE.
We express to you our most heartfelt thanks and gratitude for the opportunity to present this information to you for your discernment.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
ALL OF THIS IS YOURS FOR THE TAKING.
YOUR GLORIOUS CHOICE!
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the human
I AM You
WE ARE ONE
