Happy March! Here in California, flower petals flutter and fall down
from bare tree branches, carried by gentle breezes. The air smells fresh
and earthy as bumblebees that seem too heavy to fly make their way
slowly from underground dwellings up to the flowers above. Sun shines
through clouds between rain showers, making the whole world fresh and
new, reminding me that similar transformations are possible for me, too.
I've been asking myself and the universe the question, "How good
can life get?", looking forward to discovering the answer. I've often
thought of wide-open potential as "blue sky", in the sense that anything
is possible "out of the blue". The other day I was beginning to feel
troubled thinking about taxes and money, so I stopped to visit a thrift
shop on my round of errands. Thrift shops are a wonderful way to save
money while helping the Earth by reusing resources! I felt full of love
for life as I entered the shop -- remembering how I create my experience
around me based on my feelings within. When I walked in the door of the
thrift shop, I saw a beautiful framed original painting of... blue sky! I
bought this painting and brought it home to remind myself every night
and day that anything is possible when our hearts are full of love.

(3) Comes True Being Hoped For:
The Hopi View of Time & Space
The Hopi Indians have a word that means, "comes true being hoped for"...
tunatyava. They view the world as either manifest, or in the process of
manifesting. In the Hopi language, there are no verb tenses to indicate
past, present, or future... and there is much we can learn about seeing
the world from this point of view. My article about the Hopi metaphysics,
titled "Comes True Being Hoped For" is now available at your favorite
bookstore and/or news stand in Parabola magazine's current "Threshold"
issue. If your bookstore does not carry this quarterly journal, please ask
them to order it!
(4) Planet Lightworker Reality Shifts Column
The Planet Lightworker internet magazine now features my regular
Reality Shifts column. Visit the web site URL listed above to read
my article on the merits of "letting go" when you make a wish.
(5) Your RealityShifter Stories
We have two new realityshifter stories from the USA this month that
both pertain to the mysterious appearance of cars on the road, as well
as a very musical story from Canada in which time slows down. Please
visit the realityshifters.com web site to read all the stories; here is
Elizabeth's magical flute solo story from British Columbia:
MAGICAL FLUTE SOLO
A few years ago I played flute for a symphony orchestra in Toronto.
I had been given a rather exposed and tricky flute solo to play in a
forthcoming concert, which I practiced for weeks so I would feel
confident of being able to play it without any errors. On the evening
of the concert when it came time for me to play the solo I had been
rehearsing, I noticed that the conductor slowed the tempo down to
about half the speed, so I was able to play the difficult solo in a relaxed
and effortless way. As soon as the solo was over, the conductor
brought the tempo back up to speed. After the piece of music and
applause was over, I turned to the 2nd flute player and asked her,
"Why did the conductor slow down for my solo?". She replied, "What
are you talking about - he didn't slow down and you played it
(6) Book Review: THE MATTER MYTH
by Paul Davies and John Gribbin
Davies and Gribbin succeed in clarifying some of the most intriguing
questions known to mankind in their book, THE MATTER MYTH, such
as "How did spacetime come into existence?", "How can matter appear
out of nowhere?", "Does the future already exist?", and "How does
spacetime curve?" They delve into fascinating reasons why your
"now" and my "now" are not necessarily the same thing, and many
other exciting implications for our everyday lives from quantum
physics. What I love most about THE MATTER MYTH is the way it helps
free our thinking from the mechanical, machine-mindedness which has
for so long dominated western thinking... as its authors eloquently
assert that materialism is dead. The post-mechanistic paradigm is
