IS THE WORLD ABOUT TO CHANGE IN A FUNDAMENTAL WAY?
“Could extraterrestrials help us save the Earth?”
“We’d have to be dead above the neck if we weren’t interested in this.”
This New York Magazine piece comes on the heels of a The New York Times article that let us know about government interest in UFOs. More and more stories that came from the fringe are all of a sudden popping up in mainstream media.
SUE Speaks is a follow-up to The Cosmic Fuel Pump, a public access TV show that was my soapbox in the early 80s, where the actress that I was shifted to the advocate I had become for changing from a worldview based on greed to one coming from compassion. After I did 36 episodes of The Cosmic Fuel Pump, a booklet called INSIDE THE INTELLIGENCE: Mapping the Path to Oneness landed in my lap. It describes the world we need to live in and tells me to work to bring that about. This new show is me taking the job and part of each show is me reading a page, with the idea being that I’ll read the whole document over the life of the show.
This show was done for Amazon Prime, only the info given me was wrong and it does not fit Amazon’s specs, which would not let me send anyone off the Amazon site – but the object of the show is to get viewers to www.SUESpeaks.org to put our heads together to help shift our worldview. The show is homeless now, looking for where it might get delivered.
Watching it, it’s like we’re huddling together, compatriots round the campfire. We’re not solving individual problems but looking to shift the fundamentals of how we run the world. We talk about the sweep of history and the patterns of societal change and where we are in those cycles. I bring you some heroes to inspire you and introduce you to some historical models where we united to encourage us thinking about what we could do. We’ll look for outside the box ideas — trimtabs for system change. Maybe something can get the world’s attention that would change everything.

IN THIS EPISODE
The world would never be the same after 9/11
Gather rich power brokers to get their heads together
What if schools taught kindness and mindfulness?
Let this site be a focal point to pulse the vibe of an awakened humanity
INSIDE THE INTELLIGENCE: Mapping The Path to Oneness, Page 6
The antidote is the shift from the plane of duality to identifying yourself in a landscape of reality, which is the interconnection of everything.
Gather a group of people who are blessed by their own authenticity and impelled at this time to be tools for the awakening of humanity to its capacity for intimacy and ecstasy. Presence yourselves in reality. Your state of beingness will be your power, and no forms you might impose will be as impacting as the inspiration that will afford. To be with you will be to be with the future, the state of full responsibility and opportunity for which humanity has been designed.
The awakening to the divine in yourselves is the culminating experience of life: beyond religion, beyond teachers, beyond gurus, beyond following anybody or anything which tries to give you what you don’t have. It is time to recognize that the next step — into self — is a move that each must make in an act of independent authority, and a move that can be made in the company of other independent authorities sharing the energy of being.
The particular people who will collect for this endeavor have no exclusive entitlement. They will have heard the call and will respond. With every new participant, a strengthening of the whole will occur. This is uncharted territory which does not bend to rugged individualism, but exists only in co-creation. Meetings where people really meet are in order.
We, too, keep evolving; there is always more. Oh beautiful. Create your own aliveness, Suzanne. You are a victim as long as you are not creating. Know that you are signaling. You are beaming totality. Right now it is enough to engage with who beams back.
You are an energy that does not know separation. There is no one to whip into shape. There is no you outside of yourself to work on. Who would be doing the working? All separation is an illusion which produces a tension that is a substitute for life. Knowing self as life there is nothing to separate from.
Do not yearn. Only know yourself. Being yourself is just being. There is nowhere to go and nothing to get. Travelling with life, there is only more life.
How long, you ask, is this humanity going to play shell games? How much data about life are they going to sling around without being alive? When are they going to become what they’ve been worshipping since Jesus issued his invitation and they laminated it instead of acting on it? When are they going to sincerely ask these questions instead of expertly answering other ones?
QUOTES FROM THE SHOW
We gather together to ask the Lord’s blessing.
[After 9/11] America is something different from whatever evils its power structures have imposed on it. Imperfect people come and go, but under all of them is this river of America that the idealistic Founding Fathers so brilliantly conceptualized. They, too, were flawed humans, but this spirit of the United States is something else again. The flags waving are for that, not for George Bush. We are one, beyond where our leadership steers us. Thank God. We are a hope of the world. Maybe, thanks to this tragedy. we will achieve our promise. Let’s pray for that.
[Source of name for my non-profit, Mighty Companions] Now comes a period of settling down. This is a quiet time, in which the teacher of God rests a while in reasonable peace. Now he consolidates his learning. Now he begins to see the transfer value of what he has learned. Its potential is literally staggering, and the teacher of God is now at the point in his progress at which he sees in it his whole way out.’Give up what you do not want, and keep what you do.’ The teacher of God needs this period of respite…when he is ready to go on, he goes with mighty companions beside him. Now he rests a while, and gathers them before going on. He will not go on from here alone.
– A COURSE IN MIRACLES
A coalition already exists in spirit. It is coming together now in the social context by the attraction of its unconventional intelligence and compassionate form of high-mindedness. This natural coalition is drawn together by the recognition that the elevation of consciousness is our fundamental life work. This is a genuinely democratic, self-organizing force, flowing through persons of all descriptions. This force does not flourish as any highly structured form. It is not an institution or a foundation or a non-profit company or anything conventionally named. This coalition is a living organism — natural, wild, free. It is made up of individuals devoted to serving the world and developing themselves as finely tuned instruments of service. They learn to gather in the energy of will-to-good, from which authentic goodwill flows out subtly to the entire world.
– Lex Hixon and Suzanne Taylor
A coalition of the best minds is so desirable, like The Twilight Club from the last century: The Twilight Club was founded in the late 19th century and continued well into the 20th century. The motto was, “To cultivate good fellowship and enjoy rational recreation.” Members included Andrew Carnegie, Rudyard Kipling, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Darwin, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Walt Whitman, Mark Twain, Andrew Carnegie, Thomas J. Watson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Walter Russell.
It held regular meetings in a building in N.Y donated by Andrew Carnegie and each member agreed to write something every year that had a direct bearing on and reference to the moral code of ethics. What came out of this conviviality of good minds was the elimination of sweatshops, compulsory education and child labor laws, the Better Business Bureau, the library system, the Scout movement, Rotary and Lions and Kiwanis Clubs, and much more.

There is nothing wrong with being the audience to your own show. Meditation may take you to the void, but mind-awake can use a good plan. The examined life is always under scrutiny. Consciousness is a conscious state, and the witness knows…
The wheel of karma is exploded. There is no densed-up past to be more real than what is created. People keep the past alive. They keep thinking it is who they are. They hold hands and walk with all those partners they’ve made up for themselves.
In presence, there is only possibility. How well can you swing on the trapeze? Seize the day. Jump. Fly. Freedom and power are yours. Power for, freedom to. Don’t settle. As you ask for the best, only the best shows up. This is not about hope; it’s about command.
Self-acceptance precedes all action. Everything undertaken is corrupt to the extent that acceptance of all that you are is not total. Peace with the past is freedom for the future. It is essential.
Suzanne, the reason you don’t know what to do is because you don’t dare do what you need to do and you know you’re not to do anything else. Relax yourself. It will come in time. Remember to play. Before enlightenment, play; after enlightenment, play. Play is our bottom line.
It is time for humanity to have a new adventure. What is required is to step outside of cultural norms to recognize that you are not dealing with incremental change, where you learn a little more all the time, but now need to become the alteration that you have been working your way toward. “A bit more” and “a little closer” cannot contain the arrival at your destination. For that, something entirely new must take place.
What is called for is not another process, another methodology, another belief, or another form of any sort that is the latest best thing to come down your pike of materialism and duality. There is nothing packaged in the game of true life. What you are dealing with is beingness itself, the embracing of personhood at the level of ultimate humanness. This cannot be bought or even taught, but it can be caught. You can be that state of health which evokes more of itself.
This is not called anything. It fits none of the parameters of your world, where things of value are wrapped up and sold. It exists outside of the rules by which you play, and is the context inside which you can find the happiness for which you yearn. Something must transcend the separation at which you can get good enough to destroy your game, and that something cannot be a better poison.

If you refuse to admit that automobiles exist, you’re going to get hit by cars, not because you’re sinful or neurotic, but just because if you are not looking at automobiles you won’t see them coming.

We have an inability to get beyond the self bound by habit and collaborate with the self that is deeper.

There’s an angel within the monkey struggling to get free. The historical task consists of humanity turning itself inside out.

We are like a giant kingdom that’s been put to sleep while something new is being born. We await the kiss of life in which we come to our senses.
– Barbara Marx Hubbard
In our chronic case of mistaken identity, we go looking to fix the personality when the issue is with the soul.
We need a planet of self-emergence rather than one of self-aggrandizement.
We believe our finance-driven economic system is in urgent need of a new story, with a new roadmap. This new story must be aligned with the laws (not theories) of natural systems and our current scientific understanding of how the world works, which is remarkably aligned with the compassion and mindfulness embodied in all wisdom traditions.
– John Fullerton of Capital Institute (former J.P.Morgan Managing Director)
ICIS was founded in 1962 by Erling A. Thunberg to help address the challenges and concerns of many scholars and scientists at the end of the 1950s regarding the future. These concerns included the recognition that tremendous changes were taking place at an accelerating rate in the world – in technology, values and culture. Rapid industrial growth, changing political structures and increasing influence of mass communication were having a major impact on how humankind perceived itself, resulting in rapid fluctuations in attitudes and social customs. With this also came a major increase of information with growing specialization and fragmentation of knowledge. It became clear to many of the leading thinkers of the time that integration of knowledge and understanding was critical. Erling Thunberg’s contacts and discussions with some of the most outstanding scholars and scientists of the 1950s and early 1960s influenced his decision to establish a new organization to address the challenges in new ways … in the late 1980s participants were invited to respond to the question of what were the five most critical issues that would be facing the world between then and the turn of the century. [Most critical was disparity between rich and poor.]

We’re developing something — ideas for how to change the world
est, with impresario Werner Erhard in the 70s, was when we started coming together in massive groups to change ourselves
Ayahuasca, as the LSD of our time, is basically therapeutic, giving insight into personal issues
Staying in the present and being loving as the keys to feeling good
Staying in present time
Acceptance as essential to staying in present time
What we do to prisoners doesn’t make the world work

Surround yourself with total support – with people who are with you on the inside…on the same side. Be with appreciates of the God in each other. Gods all, you are one.
The reason people are so mixed up about life is they don’t know what the point is, or the organizing idea. They need a guiding premise to steer by. Then they know if they are on the right course.
People do not know that this is necessary and spend their time struggling with everything. Everything must be done from something. This is what you have always known. Articulate this so others can know. That quest for ideation must be made.
It is only from the point when one gets an organizing idea that the past dissolves its grip on the present. Everything that has been becomes your identity. It is all present time. What you have been or have done that has less than satisfied you is merely information for this present understanding. That understanding is who you are.
Psychotherapy is only valuable as it evokes courageousness in the present. Who you are now is who you are.
You do not have to understand the past to take charge of the present. Understanding the past is a pastime. Taking charge of the present is what you must do.
People need to live from present time. They need to release everything that’s a judgment and make everything into an observation. An observation can be very powerful. It contains none of the observer’s anger or guilt or self-doubt. Balanced perfectly between past and future, a function of what has been and what might be, it threads the eye of the needle of creation.
Come into the emptiness at the core of present time. Here and now is safety, freedom and power.
Never walk away storing left-over pain. Rather, live from the opening to the unknown. It is Werner Erhard’s distinction between people on the train who run from right to left as it veers from side to side and those who get out in front to lay new track. It is Buddha starting his Eight-Fold Path with the right understanding that you can’t make what you desire more important than what else comes knocking. Present time is clean. It’s empty. It is the living moment, always new, the doorway to life. The future has not occurred, the past is but a memory. In the present there is only presence.
You can give yourself the present of presence. You can decide to let yourself Be. It is a courageous choice. Said a Flying Wallenda, “All life is on the wire.” Your story is superseded by yourself.

In a world where death is the hunter, my friend, there is no time for doubts or regrets. There’s only time for decisions.
– JOURNEY TO IXTLAN by Carlos Castaneda
Seek, above all, for a game worth playing. Such is the advice of the oracle to modern man. Having found the game, play it with intensity – play as if your life and sanity depended on it. (They do depend on it.) Follow the example of the French existentialists and flourish a banner bearing the word ‘engagement.’ Though nothing means anything and all roads are marked ‘NO EXIT,’ yet move as if your movements had some purpose. If life does not seem to offer a game worth playing, then invent one. For it must be clear, even to the most clouded intelligence, that any game is better than no game.
– THE MASTER GAME by Robert S. de Ropp
[Norwegian prison system: ] The country relies on a concept called restorative justice and the system focuses on rehabilitating rather than punishing…for Norway removing people’s freedom is enough of a punishment…If we treat people like animals when they are in prison they are likely to behave like animals. Here we pay attention to you as human beings…Do you want people who are angry or people who are rehabilitated?
