You are the Designer of Reality (and it would be really nice if you would please do something about the state of the world!)


Quantum Mechanics provides the theory behind the emerging view of the nature of creation and the physical Universe.  We are moving toward the growing realization that our thoughts are responsible for everything.  The key part of this equation is that the “thought” precedes the “thing”.

It has long been commonly accepted that new innovations start first as an “idea” in someone’s mind.  Someone has a “vision” of a new way of doing things like Steve Jobs creating a new way to listen to music and communicate or Walt Disney envisioning a magical city springing up from a vast stretch of undeveloped land in Florida.  That idea is then developed with the help of other people lending their vision, creativity and belief to the project.  As the ideas take shape, something totally new is created.  Again, the point is that the idea precedes the reality.  Even though we have countless examples of this process in action, most people still live their lives from a “have to see it to believe it” perspective.  They simply react to appearances and accept it as “reality”.

Would anyone but a very visionary thinker or maybe a science fiction writer have believed we could travel safely in a land vehicle at over 200 miles an hour racing against 40 similar vehicles or travel to the moon and back in a space ship if we went back in time two or three hundred years?  Impossible is the word that would likely be heard.  Would it have been conceivable that virtually every human on the planet could share information and be connected to each other by an invisible and wireless communications network?  The fact is that we are making that a physical reality now.  An interesting element about this is the fact that we are in this case creating a physical companion to the far more intricate and limitless connectivity that has always existed.

Quantum Mechanics has evolved to this awareness with the Unified Field Theory.  Quantum Physicist John Hagelin has extensively documented the links between pure intelligence and individual consciousness:  Progress in theoretical physics during the past decade has led to a progressively more unified understanding of the laws of nature, culminating in the recent discovery of completely unified field theories based on the superstring. These theories identify a single universal, unified field at the basis of all forms and phenomena in the universe.  For a complete discourse on these emerging ideas, you can watch one of John Hagelin’s lectures at

The place that all of this takes us is that “positive thinking” is more than a popular remedy for a bad day.  The positive thoughts (with enough “belief” energy behind them) will actually “create” a reality that matches those thoughts.  The only thing that will prevent that desired reality from manifesting in physical time and space is if there is a lack of faith in the ability to create the desired reality.  Since thoughts are responsible for creating everything, whatever you want and can believe in you can have.  The big challenge is that it is difficult to really believe whole heartedly in something that few others do.  We are living – actually swimming in that unified field constantly exposed to infinitely diverse ideas and beliefs about the world.  This is why it is so urgent that you learn to take control of your thinking.

This brings us to the big picture.  There is power in numbers.  Studies have conclusively proven that if you get as little as ten to fifteen percent of the people in an area meditating and sending out “PositiVibes” there will be statistically relevant reductions in crime, tension, anxiety and so forth amongst the entire community.  Positive expectations unleashed on a community will alter its nature to the degree of the energy intensity focused on the area.  The corollary to this is that if negative expectations are dominant in a community, they will also be self-fulfilling prophesies.  For this reason, the “news media” can be seen as the most destructive force in society today.  By promoting all the “bad” news they can uncover, the news media plays a major role in creating the “belief” in the dominance of all of the unpleasant things in the world.  Our accepting that view of reality will directly help maintain the undesirable status quo.

The world we see around us is the RESULT of what we believe it to be.  Change the beliefs of the masses and transform the world.  Terrorism and crime would disappear from the world if enough people refused to pay any attention and shunned all fear and dread.  That is a leap of faith that has not achieved enough momentum to tip the balance yet but it is where we are headed as individuals begin to take responsibility for their own thoughts.

This is the mission of The PositiVibes Network.  Our intent is to spread the awareness that one’s beliefs create their reality and as they gain in their ability to be in charge of their thoughts there will be dramatic changes in how they experience the world.  Since there is strength in numbers, as more people share in this worldview everyone will share in the benefits.  As more people are impacted by the new view of reality, it will gradually become a dominant reality and the world will be transformed.  It does come back to each of us though.  We urgently encourage you to become part of a “PositiVibes” network of people sharing the intent to see the world in new and improved ways.  We must create and strive to live the vision of that transformed world and “will” it into being in our own life.  Like a pebble thrown into a pond sends ripples out across the pond, you will be the change and the birth of a new and improved human race.

A Guide to More Happiness

I really wrote this guidebook for myself or maybe I should say it wrote itself for me.  It is filled with important reminders for staying on what we shall call a path of least resistance. Now that it has found its way to its final form, I want to make it available to anyone who might be interested.

Since I first learned meditation from Mahareshi Mahesh Yogi at a time I was studying comparative religions at Rutgers University, I have been fascinated by explorations of consciousness – not religion or even Spirituality although they are explorations of the same concepts from a wide range of perspectives.

People talked about the coming of the Age of Aquarius a lot back in the late 60’s when I was a teenager.  For me, it was all very exciting.  It felt like I was on the cutting edge of  a deep cultural revolution – or evolution would be more accurate.  Everything speeded up in the United States and other countries where the cultures had matured to a similar place.  Things that would have been hard for the average person to even imagine a few short years before were happening regularly.  Socially, less and less people were satisfied with the status quo – freedom of personal rights and expression became the demand of the day.  Authority was questioned at every level.

The fact is that the human race was and continues to move into a dynamically new phase of evolution.  To a great extent we have mastered the material world.  Most people are still consumed by fighting for what they want in that world.  But with the inevitability of a river flowing downstream more and more people are realizing they need to go with the flow instead of dam up the river with a focus on the things they don’t want.  With that surrender comes the real magic.  The evolution of consciousness is about the realization that if we stop fighting and fearing and condemning, we can “allow” all the things we desire to flow right to us.

The real awe and wonder comes when you really get it that you were actually created in the image of “God”.  This goes beyond any religion and is really better understood scientifically.  It is about energy and you and I are each conscious points of energy inseperable from an energy field in which all of Creation swims.  We are all divine beings of infinite creative power – it’s just that most of us don’t know how to open the communication link.  That is where the evolution of consciousness comes in… the link if growing stronger in more and more people.

That may all seem a little far out but you will get comfortable with the concepts as more and more seeds get planted through time. Like I said, it is all inevitable.  It is just a matter of time.  It is the human race continuing to grow up.  How long is it going to take?  Evolution often moves very slowly but sometimes you get dramatic shifts very quickly.  Either way, you don’t have to wait.  You can step into a new world right away.  I wrote a guidebook for myself but you will also find it very useful if you want to pick up speed in flowing to a new reality.

The best part?  You can make your whole life a totally fun adventure.  If you would like a copy of the guidebook, you can get a digital edition here:

Make Reality Conform to Your Desires

“And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.” Romans 12:2 (Bible)

Do you believe you can get everything you want in your life? 

The answer is YES and you are entitled to it but you have to believe in that as your possible reality. 

A change of mind is required.

The change in perspective that is required is that rather than just trying to do your best to react to an uncertain reality you realize that reality reacts to and is shaped by you.  100% of the time.  The belief that you have no real control over life’s circumstances is false and when you simply “react” to the circumstances of your life you create a feedback loop that will just bring you more of the same, for better or worse.

As human evolution transitions from a predominance of “physical” evolution to the evolution of “consciousness” more and more people are beginning to be aware of this shift in perspective.  The “truth” we want you to accept is that you live in a world where you have the CREATIVE POWER to control what will happen to you and that you can design any reality you want for your life experience.

Anyone can do it but it takes:

  1. An awareness of the concepts
  2. Consistency in your approach to living your life
  3. A realization that whatever you believe will become your reality

Reality is all in your imagination.

You live in a magical world of your own creation even though most all of your experiences to date have probably been perceived by you as happening to you rather than as events designed by you.

 “There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle.”  Albert Einstein (American Physicist who developed the special and general theories of relativity. Nobel Prize for Physics in 1921.  1879-1955)

A FOUNDATION TRUTH:  Reality is no more than consistently held beliefs.  By designing a more positive and optimistic vision for your future and empowering that vision with belief in its real-ness you can create that future or something even more perfect than your vision.

It is the power of BELIEF and KNOWING that defines the nature of REALITY.

 “You don’t have enough faith,” Jesus told them. “I tell you the truth, if you had faith even as small as a mustard seed, you could say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it would move. Nothing would be impossible.”

Do you have that “mustard seed” of FAITH that you can shape your future?

Want to become a modern day wizard? A master Designer of Reality?

It is your birthright and like everything else it is totally up to you. The “Designer Guidebook: Reality is all in your Imagination” will give you all the information that you need to build your skill for intentionally designing your personal reality.



LOVE and fear


This picture… beautiful or threatening, somehow unsettling?

Since reality is all in your imagination, there is no right answer.  The choice is yours and that is true for everything you find along the path of your personal life adventure.  You are picking the reality that you are going to get on a moment to moment basis.  Are you getting what you really want?

Your answer will tell you something about your current frame of mind which can be very useful.  All judgement and evaluation is emotionally driven and there are just two root emotions:  love and fear.  If you are finding and thinking about lots of things you “fear”, the picture of reality you see will be filled with lots of things that you really don’t want. We all live in a world of self-fulfilling prophesies.  Anytime you feel any fear you are focusing your creative energy on something you don’t want to be part of your reality.  That “believing in the existence of that which you fear” creates the possibility of a self-fulfilling prophesy.  You are continually conjuring your reality and empowering a particular worldview with your beliefs.

This viewpoint is difficult for many because they find it very difficult to believe that the world of appearances – the story told by your five senses – is entirely the result of past beliefs both individually and collectively.  Also, no two people live in an identical reality – we each very literally live in our own world.  Even harder for people to accept is the fact that there is nothing “solid” about reality.  What we think of as reality is constantly shifting vibration patterns appearing as form based on the frequencies we perceive and translated into forms determined by our own expectations.  A limitless number of individual realities are being “thought” into existence overlapping with each other where there are shared beliefs and expectations.

So, if you can get used to the idea that reality is all in your imagination you will realize that you can make whatever you want for your personal reality to the degree you can control your thinking and keep your attention on where you want to go.  LOVE your adventure and don’t let any fears get you off track – they are the unwanted realities.  This does not mean that you are denying the existence of things you might fear or do not want, it just means that you are removing your energy from them and keeping them from having any significant influence on the world you live in.  With a little time, your example will inspire others to find a new and more satisfying reality for themselves.  Little by little the reality of the whole world can shift – it is just a question of our taking the power away from the disease of fear and keeping our focus on love and joyful world views.

Do you know who you really are?

You are at the entrance to a path toward an alternate approach to what is real. 

That may sound like a strange concept since whatever is real is real, right?

The REALITY is that there are as many “realities” as there are conscious beings.  All of existence consists of vibration transformed into form by thought energy.  Reality is the construct of perception and belief and everything is “formed” in the imagination/mind of the beholder.  For most things, the reality we behold is shared.  This is important if we are to be able to interact well with each other.  However, TOTAL agreement between each of our personal stories is not desirable. We are each dynamic contributors to the shaping of the world and the diversity is crucial for growth in an ever expanding Universe.

From the moment we are born, we begin getting instruction and advice about how life works.  Most of us quickly forget that we have complete control over our personal reality and begin to believe “the way” is get good at handling whatever life throws at us.  If you don’t believe you can control reality, it becomes very important to try and control the consensus of opinion that defines the generally perceived reality.  Great pressure is exerted on you and everyone else to go along with one viewpoint of another.  The tension and unrest in the world comes when people will not tolerate a belief about “reality” that has a differing viewpoint.

The great news is that there is no requirement to play along with any of those points of view.  You can simply ignore any idea you do not like or feel “good” about.  You have the absolute ability to write your own story regardless of what appears to be reality to someone else.  You don’t need to get anyone else to agree with you either.  In fact, that is a big waste of energy since they must learn the truth for themselves.

What you can learn to do may seem to “defy” reality to many people.  They will think you just have some kind of “magic” touch.  Eventually they will discover that those same powers can be theirs.  It is all just a matter of what you believe.  Belief is totally responsible for determining reality at all times because belief determines how you are manipulating and interacting with energy and vibration.

Taking this path does not make you a better person – it just gives you more options.  Instead of living by what is out “there” you realize it is all in your imagination.  You develop the skill to intentionally shape the world to your desires as each day falls into line with the storyline you have devised.

But you may not be ready for all of this.  (There is no rush as long as you are enjoying your life most of the time.)

Here’s a test to find out what you should do:  send out this request from your mind, “If exploring this particular way of thinking will really help me have a more satisfying and enjoyable life and I am ready for it, give me a very clear “sign” in the next 48 hours.”

That “sign” could come in many forms but if you are paying attention and looking for it, you will recognize it and you will KNOW that you have your answer.

Politics and LinkedIn

Some thoughts about the Business version of Facebook… thoughts on social commentary in general as well…

Temperature rising.  Talk about HOT buttons.  There is a very good reason why it is often suggested that you keep politics and religion out of business discussions.  Some people simply can’t have a calm discussion – way to emotionally attached to their own position to be conversational.  Lately there have been numerous references to the politics of the day and various players in the game on thebusiness networking site LinkedIn.

Many LinkedIn users have noted that these comments belong on Facebook rather than LinkedIn.  It is not the mention of political positions that is really the problem; it is the nature of the comments.  Scathing rebukes or rabid support of President Obama or Donald Trump will both generate dozens of angry and often even really nasty remarks that have no basis other than personal opinion.  It is here that I think many of you, my LinkedIn friends, have missed the point of what this site is about.  LinkedIn is a networking site designed to share connections, ideas and strategies for building personal and business success.  Comments like those we are referring to have nothing to do with building success.

LinkedIn is about finding ways to maneuver and innovate and thrive in whatever conditions happen to exist at any given moment.  It makes absolutely no difference if you agree or do not agree with any given policy or government regulation.  As a business person (or anyone really) you simply need to deal with it and figure out how you can optimize your business strategies in whatever environment you find yourself.  Complaining about what you don’t like accomplishes nothing.  The important thing is how you are going to minimize any negative effects and maximize the positive openings available.

LinkedIn should be about solutions because no one ever succeeds by getting all wrapped up in the perceive problems.  Currently, we have lots of “sour grapes” on LinkedIn thanks to the volatile politics of the day.  Let it go!  If we arrive at a time where everyone agrees on how to do things, it will mean growth and innovation have stalled.  It is the determination to thrive and succeed regardless of the obstacles and rules we don’t like that stimulate innovation and creativity.  If everything was easy going, we would be far less likely to come up with bold new ideas.  So, instead of LinkedIn complainers let’s stay focused on LinkedIn innovators.

the ART of Being

It feels so good to realize that the Energy that creates worlds is supporting you; to wake up every morning in clarity, knowing exactly who-you-are; to know that Source is thinking through you; to experience meaningful rendezvous; to dovetail with the right people who give you the right piece of information just at the right time; to never feel dependent upon anyone; to know with clarity who-you-are; to feel the Energy that creates worlds moving though your fingertips and through your mind; to see evidence all around you of the thoughts you have been thinking and to feel the power of who-you-are! That’s what you came for.


#1 Key to Success

There are a lot of things… lists of things that will help make you successful.  But there is ONE most important thing if your personal happiness is the true measure of your success.  That one most important thing is to keep your focus full time on APPRECIATION.

If you constantly are seeking out people, places, events and accomplishments to be thankful for you will fill your life with ever more success.

Don’t pass this information off as simplistic or overstated.  And don’t think “it couldn’t be that easy” because there is nothing easy about it.  To never focus any of your energy on the things you are not happy about in your life takes a lot of practice and discipline.  Try just tuning out that voice in your head that that will come up with an endless list of reasons why you shouldn’t be happy – right now at least.  How can you be happy when there are more bills than money in your bank account?  How can you be happy when the doctor just told you that you only have a few months to live?  How can you be happy when you just crashed your new car?  The dog ate your favorite slippers.

Well, there you go.  If you don’t intentionally keep it in check your imagination is probably going to come up with dozens of things you are not thankful for.  Maybe even scary or angry things grab your attention.

All of that is why, even though you know the #1 strategy for consistent and ever expanding success and happiness, you are not getting it.  Thinking ONLY about stuff that you are THANKFUL for takes a lot of effort and practice and determination.

But it is worth it.  Luckily even if you fail to stay in that frame of mind 100% of the time, as long as you keep finding your way back to feeling good and thankful every time you realize you have fallen off the wagon, it will get easier.  The more time you spend being thankful the better things will get and the momentum will get stronger toward fun, happiness and so much success you will wonder why everyone doesn’t realize how simple it is.

Do We Exist in a Field of All Posibilities?


“More than 95% of the energy density in the universe is in a form that has never been directly detected in the laboratory!” (NASA)

I have no idea how I happened to be at what was a very high level scientific lecture in NYC – at Lincoln Center I believe – by David Bohm and neuroscientist Karl Pribram.   Bohm worked with Pribram on the theory that the brain operates in a manner similar to a hologram, in accordance with quantum mathematical principles and the characteristics of wave patterns.  At the lecture I attended Bohm and Pribram discussed their “holographic theory of the Universe”.  A hologram is actually an information storage system that allows the information to be compressed in its dimensions.  Like standard photography, an image is captured on a special film.  If you shine the light of a laser through the film a very precise three dimensional image will appear in the air – maybe you remember the scene in Star Wars where Princess Leia appeared to deliver an important message.  You don’t need special glasses and you can move around the image just as if it were a real object.


One of the very interesting things about a holograph is how the information is stored – it is stored throughout the film.  By this I mean that you can take any small piece of the film and the information for the entire image is there.  If you have a square film 12 inches by 12 inches and you cut a one inch by one inch piece and then shine the laser through it, the entire image will all be there – it will just lack some of the detail, it won’t be as crisp and precise but it will all be there appearing in 3-d space.  Bohm and Pribram postulated that our brain functions similarly and that the physical Universe as a whole holds information in the same way.  This would mean that all of the information existing in the Universe exists in every molecule – just in less detail.  The bigger a piece of the data field you had access to, the greater the detail available.  Since we are all individual points of consciousness of an infinite and continuously expanding energy field, might we have direct access to all of the knowledge / information in the Universe?  Might this be how inspiration works?  Like a Universal Search Engine, we pose a question and our inquiry goes out into the network and as answers are found, they come back to us as flashes of insight.


You will see how this connects directly to our hope for “PositiVibes Networks” of people coming together.  Consider how Bohm’s concerns apply to our discussion of the continuous monologue coming from the ego.


The Holographic Theory of the Universe would indicate the inseperably interconnectedness of all of Creation.  Bohm was concerned by what he considered an increasing imbalance of not only man and nature, but among peoples, as well as within people, themselves.  Bohm mused: “So one begins to wonder what is going to happen to the human race. Technology keeps on advancing with greater and greater power, either for good or for destruction.”


He goes on to ask:  “What is the source of all this trouble? I’m saying that the source is basically in thought. Many people would think that such a statement is crazy, because thought is the one thing we have with which to solve our problems. That’s part of our tradition. Yet it looks as if the thing we use to solve our problems with is the source of our problems. It’s like going to the doctor and having him make you ill. In fact, in 20% of medical cases we do apparently have that going on. But in the case of thought, it’s far over 20%.”


In Bohm’s view:


…the general tacit assumption in thought is that it’s just telling you the way things are and that it’s not doing anything – that ‘you’ are inside there, deciding what to do with the info. But you don’t decide what to do with the info. Thought runs you. Thought, however, gives false info that you are running it, that you are the one who controls thought.  Whereas actually thought is the one which controls each one of us.


Thought is creating divisions out of itself and then saying that they are there naturally. This is another major feature of thought: Thought doesn’t know it is doing something and then it struggles against what it is doing. It doesn’t want to know that it is doing it. And thought struggles against the results, trying to avoid those unpleasant results while keeping on with that way of thinking. That is what I call “sustained incoherence”.


Bohm proposes in his book, Thought as a System, a pervasive, systematic nature of thought:


What I mean by “thought” is the whole thing – thought, felt, the body, the whole society sharing thoughts – it’s all one process. It is essential for me not to break that up, because it’s all one process; somebody else’s thoughts become my thoughts, and vice versa. Therefore it would be wrong and misleading to break it up into my thoughts, your thoughts, my feelings, these feelings, those feelings… I would say that thought makes what is often called in modern language a system. A system means a set of connected things or parts. But the way people commonly use the word nowadays it means something all of whose parts are mutually interdependent – not only for their mutual action, but for their meaning and for their existence. A corporation is organized as a system – it has this department, that department, that department. They don’t have any meaning separately; they only can function together. And also the body is a system. Society is a system in some sense. And so on.


Similarly, thought is a system. That system not only includes thoughts, “felts” and feelings, but it includes the state of the body; it includes the whole of society – as thought is passing back and forth between people in a process by which thought evolved from ancient times. A system is constantly engaged in a process of development, change, evolution and structure changes…although there are certain features of the system which become relatively fixed. We call this the structure…. Thought has been constantly evolving and we can’t say when that structure began. But with the growth of civilization it has developed a great deal. It was probably very simple thought before civilization, and now it has become very complex and ramified and has much more incoherence than before.


Now, I say that this system has a fault in it – a “systematic fault”. It is not a fault here, there or here, but it is a fault that is all throughout the system. Can you picture that? It is everywhere and nowhere. You may say “I see a problem here, so I will bring my thoughts to bear on this problem”. But “my” thought is part of the system. It has the same fault as the fault I’m trying to look at, or a similar fault.


Thought is constantly creating problems that way and then trying to solve them. But as it tries to solve them it makes it worse because it doesn’t notice that it’s creating them, and the more it thinks, the more problems it creates. (pp. 18–19)

Who or what is doing all of this thinking?
