From The Desk Of Joe Rumbolo April/May/June 2008
Before I begin, I preface this commentary with these words:
Everything I say here is My Truth. It does not have to be Your Truth.
I offer My Truth to you for your discernment. Perhaps it will cause you to Re-Member yet another nugget. Perhaps it will cause you to move yet another step closer toward ReMembering who you truly are. Perhaps by writing this, it will cause me to Re-Member another nugget and to move me yet another step closer toward ReMembering who I truly am.
The past few months have been a very fascinating and busy time for me. It never seizes to amaze me how, no matter how careful and specific we are in declaring our intentions, as soon as we…and specifically when…we add the words Or Something Better, For The Highest Good Of All, how interesting and different the manifestation that shows up can be. Ultimately, it is Something Better, although many times it does not appear as such in the moment and may not appear as such for quite a while. This requires a considerable amount of trust.
I have been going through just such a situation for more than a year now, with a particular business activity. When the opportunity first appeared, it seemed like a God-send…one of those Or Something Betters that I just mentioned and in fact, at the time and for a while, it actually was one of those Or Something Betters. When it began to smell and then taste like spoiled milk, I knew that somewhere along the way this project had been derailed and it headed south in a hurry, as the saying goes.
I do have a couple of choices in this matter. I could wallow in the junk of this situation feeling cheated and victimized for time spent without just rewards, or, I can take the positives…the people I've met and the things I've learned (not only the things that I've learned to do, but especially the things that I have learned not to do!)…and take them with me as I move forward, creating my path one step at a time, causing me to move into the manifestation as I had originally seen it, declared it and more. I could view this situation as me having been sidetracked and wasting a lot of valuable time, but instead, I view this situation as the necessary training to do what I had originally set out to accomplish, all the while getting paid to train, how ever minimal and nominal I may think that was. I don't know how many university credits this experience has been worth but I would venture to say that it has been much more valuable than anything that I learned at St. Louis University while earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Commerce and Finance!
Within hours of me surrendering, releasing and letting go of this situation, a new improved Or Something Better did show up and is being explored in this moment. There is one thing, however, that I want to make perfectly clear about this. Just because I surrendered, released and let this situation go does not mean that I just walked away and road off into the sunset never to be seen or heard from again while allowing people to slide on behavior that was/is out of integrity, including questionable business ethics and questionable business and accounting practices. There are certain situations and times that call for silence in the moment and there are certain situations and times that call for confrontation.
This particular situation absolutely called for confrontation, not physical confrontation but verbal confrontation. In plain language, it was about calling someone on their shit and being completely detached from the outcome. This is the key here: being completely detached from the outcome. I'm sure that for at least a few of the good little spiritual and metaphysical boys and girls out there who may be reading this that this revelation of confrontation is causing the hair on the backs of their necks to stand up as they Tsk! Tsk! Tsk! that becoming angry and confrontational and expressing that anger isn't holy…isn't spiritual…isn't sacred…and how can one be both spiritual and participate in such behavior? Well folks, Tsk! all you want in surprise, disgust or whatever judgmental feeling you choose to have, but I came here to have a Human experience and this is a part of it.
This particular situation is by no means over and when it is finally resolved, I will fill you in on the details and inform you of the outcome. I can't wait to tell you where this is all headed. It is incredible!
Moving right along, I cannot remember a time during this incarnation when I have ever been in awe of celebrity of any kind; entertainment, political, religious, spiritual, educational, etc. In fact, I don't even use the word "awesome" to describe anything and the infinite number of times that I have heard people use that word, it always sounds as pleasant as fingernails on a chalkboard; but that's just me!
Having spent so many years in the music industry both as a performer and in the business side of the music business, the opportunity to meet both celebrities and others who may be considered "heavyweights" in the entertainment and other industries, have occurred rather frequently. I have always appreciated and respected the gifts and talents of those who work in the creative arts and intellectual properties, especially the talents of musicians, singers, songwriters and authors; producers and engineers; A & R people and even entertainment attorneys, agents, managers and record label executives; etc., but I have never placed any of them on a pedestal; I have never placed any of them above myself or anyone else. There are some who resonate with me more than others and whose gifts and talents I very much respect and appreciate, but I have never been "in awe" of any of them. They all put their pants on in the same way as you and I do…One Leg At A Time.
Having been this way throughout this incarnation, it is an important characteristic for me to recognize about myself. This is not good or bad and it is certainly not right or wrong to either be in awe of or not in awe of celebrity or anything else, for that matter. It just doesn't happen to work for me. The reason why this characteristic seems important for me is that it has allowed me the ability to not become enamored with certain philosophies and especially with the so-called gurus attached to those philosophies, either self-proclaimed or otherwise. This characteristic has assisted me in my process of discernment. Call it whatever you choose to call it but I'm just not very easily impressed.
This may sound rather cliché to you but I'm From Missouri…SHOW ME! For those of you who live outside of the USA, I am from the state (province) of Missouri and Missouri is called The "Show Me" State.
As such, I have never spoken or referred to the names of those who are called The Ascended Masters in humility, reverence or sacredness, or even in faux humility, reverence or sacredness, etc. I say "faux" meaning more intellectual than authentic; more from "this is what I'm supposed to say, do, act" rather than speaking, doing and acting from authenticity; and from viewing them as anything or anyone who is "better than." There is no disrespect on my part, but there is also no notion from me that those who are called The Ascended Masters are any better than or on a higher level than you, me or anyone else. If you want to believe that they are on a higher level than you, then so be it. It is your choice and all choices are honored. Although you may be correct in your belief, you and I will never know for sure in this life time because neither your beliefs nor my beliefs are absolute. We just don't know for sure, but the speculation can be interesting and fun. Having the truth that these Ascended Masters are no better than or are not at a higher level than anyone else certainly could be a catalyst for a potentially different life path than someone who believes that he/she is "less than," "not enough," or "not worthy."
Show me proof that those who are called The Ascended Masters know more than you and me and are at some higher level than we are. Show me proof that energetically, My Energy, on the other side of the illusionary veil…or on this side of the veil, for that matter…is not an Ascended Master. Of course, that proof cannot be shown. Again, everything is speculation at best, however, My Truth does say that I/my energy does exist here, there and everywhere and this truly does resonate with me. How many times did you hear as a child that God Is Everywhere? God Is Everywhere! And so it is that WE are! Of course, as children we were told that to cause fear so that we would behave in a certain way. You better behave because God is everywhere and He is watching…a wonderful case of manipulation!
Perhaps at this time in my life, in this incarnation, I am not as easily swayed by the "next best thing/idea" to hit the metaphysical/spiritual world. What I mean is that just because the metaphysical/spiritual masses are on to or swayed by the next big thing being presented by some high profile guru or teacher doesn't mean that I'm going to believe it, buy into it or follow it, just because a certain person or group of people speak it.
Although I am not easily swayed, I do know what resonates with me and when I wake up in the morning with a new idea (or at least, something new to me) or it hits me during the day or someone speaks it to me and it resonates with me, then I roll with it. I do not get up on a soapbox and begin to preach it but I will present it in conversations and in writing as a "What If" kind of a question. My intention is not to cram the idea down anyone's throat but merely to put it out there, check the response and see if it resonates with anyone else.
Regarding The Ascended Masters, the popular thought is that they are superior to us in experience, knowledge and evolution and are teaching us.
Having said that, here we go!
What if We Are Ascended Masters In
Human Form and
This is quite possible. Do you think that this might shed a bit of a different light on Self Empowerment…on HUMAN EMPOWERMENT?!?
For me, this speaks volumes about the nature of our capabilities and who we truly are. What are your thoughts?

THE CLEAR VIBRATION™
Dearest Warriors of the Light…
The time has come for you to stop leaning on us and start standing on your own two feet. Just in case you have not noticed, the time for you to disengage the illusion of your training wheels, has long passed. You are certainly capable of doing this…the Human Experience…on your own. You have been doing it on your own, in a sense, since the very beginning, anyway. You just have not been aware of it. Let us explain.
Sure, you have always been surrounded by those who you call guides and angels and whatever other kinds of groups of energies with which you feel safe and comfortable and with which you may want to identify. At this time, we are not going to have the conversation of who are your guides and who are your angels. You have created the illusion of all of this outside help, because you have always thought that whatever is outside of you is much better than, much greater than and much more powerful than that which is inside of you…within.
As good little religious or spiritual boys and girls, you have been taught to humbly ask for your daily crust of bread and on good days, perhaps a bowl of broth to go with it, oh, and on special occasions, perhaps a small piece of meat or fish in the broth and be damned thankful for it, too! Okay…so perhaps we are exaggerating a bit, but not much. You have been told to respectfully and humbly ask your deity…God, the Universe, your higher power, the All That Is…whomever and whatever that may be for you, for what you want, praying on your knees with your hat in your hand, admitting and expressing that you probably do not deserve that for which you ask, but please…can you have it anyway. The interesting thing is that in showing or offering what you think is respect for the deity, you have been grossly dis-respecting yourselves! God/the Universe/the All That Is/Your Higher Power never intended for it to be this way. YOU never intended for it to be this way, but in donning the veil, you have listened to the priests and gurus, those who are outside of you, those whom you think are better than and know more than you, those who have intentionally or unintentionally misled you…misguided you…to listen to and follow that which is not within you, that which is not YOU! If listening to that which is outside of you was actually one of the requirements of the Human experience, you never would have agreed to incarnate, over and over, time and time again. Following that which is outside of you, just did not make sense in the context of this game. YOU knew that even though you would be wearing the veil that YOU ARE YOUR OWN GURU, the only guru that you meant for you to follow.
We tell you at this time that much of what you have been taught is the complete opposite of what is. Well, let us put it this way: The interpretation of much of what you have been taught is the complete opposite of what is, beginning with this idea of humbly and respectfully asking for what you want. Do not get us wrong. Humility and respect are not necessarily bad things, when they are authentic, however, when they are false…inauthentic…they are detrimental to the process.
Many display intellectual humility and respect because they think that this is the way it should be. Others display intellectual…no, inauthentic…humility and respect because this is how they want to be seen by others; this is a way for them to get what they want from others.
Here is what we say and know that we give this to you for your discernment…
Ask not from un-deserve-ability and
Do you understand what this means? This is not about arrogance or conceit. This is about quiet, centered, self-empowered confidence and knowing. Again, It Is Your Birthright, part of your requirements for agreeing to play this game. Do with this what you will. It is your choice.
Now…let us explain this idea of you doing it on your own since the very beginning anyway. Yes, this is indeed the truth.
Who are you? Well…who do you think you are? We know who you are. If you clearly and truly knew who you are, you would not need an explanation of doing it on your own since the very beginning.
YOU…and WE…are all a part of that very flavorful soup called The Oneness, The Universe, God, The All That Is. Many of YOU know this already, but each of YOU has The All That Is within you, imbedded in every cell of your body and in each strand of your DNA. It is all there…within YOU. There is nothing outside of you that is not also within you. There is nothing within you that is not also outside of you. Once you get past the intellectual understanding of this and move to the knowing of this, inside, outside, within, without…does not matter…and that Dearest Warriors is how and why you have been doing this all on your own, from the very beginning; and you continue to do it on your own, under the guise of having all of this outside help…because you can…and outside or inside, it is all you!
Does it now make sense to you why we said these words earlier:
Ask not from un-deserve-ability and
All you are doing here is telling yourself…informing yourself…declaring to yourself…what you want. Now picture yourself humbly and respectfully approaching yourself with your hat in your hand, saying to yourself:
Now, listen ME, I probably do not deserve it, but would it be possible for you (ME) to please give ME (you) a crust of bread with perhaps a bowl of broth and…Oh My God…with maybe a small piece of meat in it?
Viewing it this way, it is kind of humorous, wouldn't you agree? Well, that is what you are doing.
Seeing it all from this perspective will perhaps cause you to exercise that which is, indeed, your birthright!
WE ARE ONE and until next time, 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.
TAKE ALL OF IT. TAKE SOME OF IT. TAKE NONE OF IT.
We ask only that you…
Spread The Light
DO NOT FORGET TO BREATHE!
YOU ARE GOD, and So Is Everyone Else.
We reluctantly leave you at this time but before we go, please allow us to reveal ourselves:
All along, it has been Me talking to YOU; You talking to Me; You talking to You; and Me Talking to Myself…no mystery, no mystique.
From the beginning it has been Us talking to Ourselves.
I AM Joseph…I AM the Sentinel…I AM the Human
I AM You
WE ARE ONE
