It was Pop’s second day back in Boston. He was still readjusting from his 19 day trip to Prescott Arizona. Pops knew that he had to write because he had the first-hand experience behind this person called “Robert” and who Robert himself had affectionately called “Pops.” Pops is a name that Robert’s youngest son called him. Robert later realized that Pop is the abbreviation for “Principal of Peace,” a name that was given to him by a math teacher of an Islamic school where he had served as principal for 9 years.
Pops wondered how it would all turn out, especially the next 79 days. This is how many days are left in his web “writing” and documentation. Until now, he has done nothing to promote it other than tell a few people about it when they were curious enough to ask what he was doing. :Were they curious enough to actually go look up “Themasterstorytellers.com” or “2030.one” he wondered every time he would tell them. His brother-in-law Gavin texted him just the day before and wrote, “…I want to talk with you someday about your website. I’ve gone through the whole thing and it’s great….I want you to know I’m impressed and would like to learn more about it from you someday soon.” This meant a lot to Pops.
Pops was performing an experiment. Just as he learned that there is a story within every story, within every story, and so on, he learned the same about Truth, Love, Experience, and Experiments. This was to be an experiment for him. Could one “regular” person change the world? He wondered.
He considered himself “regular.” He was neither poor nor rich, but regular, which is what most people are. His father never went to a university but worked his butt off to provide for his family as a telephone repairman/installer. His mother never went to university but she worked her butt off caring for her five children, her husband, and the family pets. Pops was the only one of the five children who went to the university. Even when he was a senior in high school, he still had his head in the clouds and was not thinking much about his future. He did a lot of day dreaming, thinking, and believing. He applied for only one university, prompted by an unexpected classroom visit of his high school counselor. “If you want to go to San Diego State University,” she said. “You need to apply now.” And so Pops did and was accepted. Pops at the time had the dream of becoming an architect one day. He had taken drafting classes in high school and won an award for best home design. The contest was to draw his dream home along with site, foundation, floor, framing, and roof plan. This lead him to work as an industrial engineering consulting job which gave him one of his most challenging jobs – to move 800 pieces of equipment which affect a computer manufacturing lab and 200 people starting on a Friday afternoon and completing it Sunday evening with all equipment and computers working when employees walk into their work spot on Monday morning. It was a year in planning, and it was a success. From this, Pops was prompted to go back to the university to get a Masters in Education so he could travel overseas and teach English. He realized he had a lot to learn about the world. He thought about going to Japan so he could learn more about Buddhism, but he felt he learned what it had to offer. He thought about going to the Soviet Union at one time to understand why the communist hated America, but when the U.S.S.R collapsed, he saw no reason to go. The Middle East was his next choice. They talk of believing in One God. “How is this different than what Christians believe?” he thought. He spent 10 years in the Middle East teaching and one year as a school principal in Kuwait, and one year as a young single boy in Syria wanting to know more about culture and Islam. At the end of his year of being single, he became a married American boy to a Syrian girl from Damascus.
Pops had only 79 days left to complete his project. By the time his 79 days were up, he expects to have world wide coverage on his project and will have sold millions of books. He is not advertising because in the back of his mind, he wants his stories to be so intriguing that he won’t have to “advertise.” He is also experimenting with the law of attraction. If what he is doing is the ‘right’ thing, then the stories will attract others. He is also experimenting with plant medicines as they have helped his creativity and perspectives on reality. He knew that if his writing was good, then people would naturally tell others. In his work, he would subtly advertise products, not because he was being paid or was hoping to get paid, but merely because he hoped that the people who collaborated to put out the product he ‘advertised’ would pay forward some good deed and better yet, do some act to help with the dream of 2030. He selected only products that he or his family used and liked. The only way Pops wanted to get paid was through selling his books. This would mean that he would be completely supported by his readers and this would mean a lot to him. The whispers of his mind, at this time, were telling him that he needed only two months, 60 days to get the kind of attention he needed for his work. He felt confident that this is the greatest story ever told and he was one of the narrators.
One of the subtle thoughts told him that he was to reread “Heart of the Shaman” by Alberto Villoldo. Pops wondered what Shamans dream. At the time of his trip to Rythmia in Costa Rica with his wife 8 month prior, Pops realized through his journey on Ayahuasca, that he had so much more to learn, that what he knew of reality was so little. He knew he would be back to South America to further explore what it means to be a shaman, but for now, he would reread “Heart of the Shaman.” He took notes of quotes as he read. Perhaps he would use them in his presentations that he would be giving in the last 60 days.
“Men and women who serve and protect this sacred dream are known as luminous warriors. They have no enemies in this world or the next.”
“Each one of us is given a fragment of the sacred dream to hold and express in our own way. When we forget…”
“When you hold a sacred dream, the universe begins to actively conspire on your behalf to make the impossible doable.”
“…the sacred dream – which is what each of us most seeks”
“We can discover our Holy Grail – our sacred dream but we must follow the unmarked trail to the castle…”
“If you are true to the quest, you are shown your sacred dream. You become a luminous warrior. You find whatever the challenge, spiritual resources are available to you – which allows you to find your courage and step forth into your destiny, allied with spirit into the task of dreaming a new world into being.”
“The light of the sacred dream is known as Primordial Light, and the Andean sages called it Ti “
“The sacred dream you will be shown is made from Light”
How is Ti different than the Sun?
According to lore, Ti can create beauty, or heal the sick, or fabricate galaxies”
“Ti is the source of power for the shamans”
“The sacred dream is said to be made of light”
“The sacred dream is a plan for the destiny of the cosmos and of every living being within it.”
“The sacred dream requires that each one of us hold our part of the dream of the possible future and endeavor to create it.
“The early church was founded on experience. The modern church is founded on belief”
What is the difference between experience and belief? Is it the same difference between spirituality and religion? Are experience and religion synonymous? Are spirituality and religion synonymous?
Is 2030, the current sacred dream, the same way 2045 could be the sacred dream of the next generation? Are these stories meant for the structured evolution in consciousness, the help heal the people of the planet and to bring all into harmony?
Sometimes Pops felt like he could write forever. It was hard for him to find a place to stop writing and therefore stop thinking. He liked imagining and turning his imaginings to a story. As long as he was going to write a story, why not write the greatest story ever told?
This experiment that Pops was performing included the universe conspiring on his behalf, but not only his, but of all the people in the world. There came a time when the people realized that they have no enemies, that they are all one.
Villoldo states, “Early people were tempted to worship Ti because of its infinite generosity. But Inka realized that you can’t worship the Primordial Light as a god, for that would mean denying your own nature as light bound into flesh. When you understand your nature, you shine with your own light, like the sun. And like the sun, which is the only thing that does not cast a shadow, you no longer project your dark sides and the unhealed parts of your psyche onto others.”
Just the day before Pops gave the title to Moon4. He changed it from “Open Source Realty” which was the title for Moon3.5 to “Do you See what We See?” and the sub-title of “We are all in this Together.” Today when he checked his email, he received an email from Kathleen Hamilton, dated the day before,with the title “We are all in This Together.” Pops wondered if there would be some kind of co-creation going on with the Hamilton family.
