Consciousness includes Oneness as our shared experience of being. We are relation-based creatures living with others. Carol Olivia Adams, author of “The Awakening of Friendship,” joins Janet as they explore 9 principles in friendship that foster connection to another and embrace the universal tapestry of mankind.

It is all about John Lennon and his life with Yoko Ono. Back in the day she was presented as a strange Oriental woman artist who had mesmerized John away from the Beatles. The film is about the dynamics at play in their relationship with themselves, the Beatles and most of all, their music. Details that I did not know and probably most of us didn't know then and don't know now. If you are at all interested in the process of artists and life reflects where they are and how they express you will enjoy this.
I was in my early 20's, living in California, very ill and doing the best I could in my world. Their glamorous New York life was very different from mine.
So, as we all do, I made assumptions about someone else in their live based on what my life was like. Or, by what I read. I apologize to John Lennon and Yoko Ono. And to everyone else I made assumptions about. I look not to do that these days.
I always enjoyed this song. Yet, it seemed more about imagination as frivolous than real as creative force at the time to me in that sense of myself. And sad that we had to imagine and what was not real.
Now, in hindsight and my ability to see, know and appreciate more than I did then, this is not so pie in the sky. It calls to the deepest place inside of us, what ever the words you may use. It is about the power of the mind and spirit, the essence in each of us, as Consciousness, working together in an inner harmony if we only allow it to be our truth.
Morphic resonance will help take care of the rest of us who are tuned in.
It is a theme for consciousness technologies.
Imagine was voted Song of the Century by those who track that sort of thing. Let yourself just sit and listen and feel this time, as Consciousness, in Heart Centered Awareness, that it is us, in malleable time and space. Imagine it into reality. Bring it into the NOW.
I have included a link to a demo recording John made at his home studio before it's release.
Imagine written by John Lennon and Yoko Ono
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Living for today (ah ah ah)
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Living life in peace
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will be as one
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Sharing all the world
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one.
Yoko Ono was finally given writing credit a few years ago. Lyric Find, where I found the lyrics still only lists John Lennon as the writer. Imagine that. Only 40 years later does she get credit.

Over the course of our lifetimes much will happen. How we react, how we choose to respond is up to us. Sheryl Hirsch-Kramer, the instigator of the Love and Kindness Initiative joins Janet in their shared awareness of what is possible. What happens when we let love be our only response? Not hatred, not complacency, not fear. From within our sense of Wholeness, is there a challenge of only extending love and kindness to others in our world?

As a human animal, what is is like to be able to experience emotions, such as love and hate and everything in between? Each emotion feels different as an energy and take us into different places in being. They can rule our lives for some and for others they are navigation tools to experiencing Wholeness, as all life's ups and downs, Oneness as connection and ultimately Being.
Other mammalian animals have emotions that are witnessed in nature all the time. If a animal feeds her young through her breast you can guarantee certain emotions are present. The others use environmental signals to keep their young safe.
What about feeling physical sensations? To feel a smile, to scratch an itch, to cough, to hold hands, to feel your heartbeat and your breath. No two people are going to do it in just the same way.
All is unique to each of us. We share in our human design but what each of us are under the skin is unique. How you feel emotions and feel sensations is yours alone. How you put together and construct meaning of being is yours alone.
How you think about who, what, where, when you are is totally up to you. This you, that is subject to influences of all kinds through out ones life.
This is thinking, this is mind, this is being.
And under all this, at core of our humanity is Consciousness, our sense of ourselves bigger than ourselves. It is us in connection to all we find around us. Where our outside layers focus on individuality and our inner layers know us as all one, without label. All One, just expressing in different forms with different levels of awareness.
Rupert Sheldrake PhD, brings us awareness that shared genetic memory is real between species. It is Morphic Resonance. I know this to be true from my own experiences of synchronicity.
I enjoy the 100th Monkey Principle as real all the time. That tale is about how a monkey on an isolated island did a new action in cleaning fruit and soon other monkeys, with the shared genetics, on other isolated islands demonstrated the new behavior also. Something happens here and then it is elsewhere. I am always looking for that 100th monkey that changes everything. I easily see it as extending beyond the form, as shared thought, ideas, constructs.
The human design has a certain range of sensory information that is different than other life forms. We are not as specialized as others. Take the dog's ability to smell, the eyesight of the eagle to see and you kind of get the idea. We are not the best at any one sense but we are adept with many senses. This could be part of our fascination with superheroes who embody a remarkable level of ability in some one sense usually.
As far as shared genetic memories you can contemplate the level of awareness of the bacteria in your body, or the fungus within. For our bodies hold lots of forms of life that are in communication with our bodies below our regular levels of awareness. Fungi are cellular creatures that eat and fill space. That is it's directive. Wouldn't seem a level of intelligence present but something has to be present. And you need fungi but not out of wack in a finely tuned level of relation. We don't want it to take over. Like Candida for instance in the body.
So what if the fungus and bacteria in my body was in connection, communication with the matching fungus and bacteria in your body? Would you notice? Does this explain the closeness that is present between strangers and even family? Not so much your life experiences but maybe also shared references inside our bodies? Just a thought. Maybe this is part of empathetic resonances and quantum entanglement.
If you are confused inside about your place in yourself, in your family much less the world, if you are in fear about the world around you, are the rest of us picking up on your vibration?
So we need to be aware of our frameworks of the world outside of us. They totally reflect our inner framework about how and who and what and when we are. This is how we create reality.
Love, kindness, compassion and respect are some of what I want to experience in my world reality. Are they within me?
Have a wondrous week.
Life in the Beyond/Journeys Into Enlightenment

Life is a transcendent state weaving together many forms of expression. Whether it be earth, animal or human, all Life, past, present and future, resides together in Consciousness, no one thing separate. Dr. Joanne Lefebvre Connolly, DVM and Janet contemplate this shared state with wisdom gained from our past and present pets and from nature. In being aware of this web of life, we can take better care of ourselves and be better stewards of all living creatures and of our unique home planet Earth.
