Activating Your Potential

Welcome to the Activating Your Potential Blog!

I’m thrilled to launch this resource focused on empowering professionals, entrepreneurs, seekers, and others to maximize their purpose and potential using AI ethically.

After decades serving as an attorney and helping clients navigate complex career and life transitions, I’ve expanded my focus to help motivated individuals align their talents and passions with meaningful work.

I now provide spiritual life coaching, consulting for conscious businesses, and guidance on integrating technology like AI mindfully. My mission is to support people in actualizing their goals and sharing their gifts with the world.

While automation is often blamed for dehumanizing aspects of society, I believe emerging technologies like AI, when developed responsibly, can amplify our humanity rather than diminish it. Advanced analytics, predictive modeling, conversational interfaces and other innovations allow us to offload rote work and augment our creativity.

This frees us up for deeper fulfillment – pursuing work we find meaningful, connecting more authentically in our communities, and discovering inner peace. With the right ethical framework, AI can empower our talents versus replace them.

Of course, there are real risks involved if these technologies are applied carelessly. Bias in algorithms, privacy violations, Weaponization of data, and loss of accountability are just some of the dangers.

My aim with this blog is to have thoughtful conversations about how we can steer emerging innovations toward empowering human potential while safeguarding what makes us human.

There are those who fear AI will make humans obsolete. But I believe that if developed consciously, with wisdom and care, AI can unlock our greatest aspirations as individuals and collectively. We shape the tools; the tools do not shape us.

Here are some key topics I plan to explore:

  • Clarifying your core motivations, values and sense of purpose
  • Designing work and lifestyles aligned with your passion
  • Transitioning to careers and contributions that energize you
  • Implementing AI to increase impact, not just profits
  • Balancing productivity with authentic presence and relationships
  • Building focus, resilience and well-being into each day
  • Creating inclusive environments that allow diverse talents to thrive
  • Guiding AI development to augment humans rather than replace us
  • Fostering compassionate communities and conscious business cultures

I invite you to join me on this journey of actualizing potential. The path ahead will no doubt contain both promise and peril. But progress lies not in resisting change, but directing it wisely.

Subscribe now to receive future posts and updates. My aim is to provide knowledge and tools to help you live your purpose and share your gifts with the world, while advancing conscientious AI integration.

I look forward to connecting! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any feedback or ideas for topics you want to explore.

Aren’t You Glad You’re Leaving 3D?

Your awakening is progressing at a rapid rate now. No longer do you look just to the media for information, at least not the traditional media were here up with. Heck, you can’t trust the social media, either. Everybody’s got their thumb on the scale.

That’s one of the hardest things for me lining in this world as it is now. My thing is the conscious exercise of free will, with responsibility and restraint.

But everywhere I turn, I see someone who thinks they’re way has to be my way, and worse, are trying to force it down my throat.

These conflicts of will and desire are endemic to the world we’ve known, two attributes that our attachments to must diminish if we are to move into higher densities. They lower our vibrational frequencies and impair our service of the One Creator, which many call God by one name or another.

You see it everywhere. Violence in the streets. An inability to tolerate each other, much less get along. Corruption and evil doing are the norms. All used to oppress us and remove our ability to think for ourselves and choose our own paths through the world

Thankfully that’s changing. Growing transparency is rendering the old guard impotent. Expanding consciousness starts with shifting perspectives, and it has become apparent to all but those who will not see that the system no longer serves the people.

Those who are awakening see this; the rest feel it, but can’t put their finger on why. You know that it’s because the old ways cannot exist in the new energies, and so their hold over us is crumbling.

They and their minions and believers will continue on their path of destruction and try to take all of us down with it. Perhaps they will, but I won’t give an ounce of attention to fear that would allow them to keep doing their harms. To me, they are bit players in the Great Apocalypse, and I’ve got a front row seat. Pass the popcorn.

I encourage you to detach from what you see going on in the world. Don’t fall prey to their fear porn or efforts to imposed their wills. Keep your head down and live your life in peace and with joy.

But you’re probably doing that anyway, slowly pulling away and creating your own life without them as much as possible. And that is exactly what you need to do if you’re wanting to evolve into 4th density consciousness.

Keep your center and don’t let life insurance you for long, lest it drag you back into the mire. Unfortunately, those who remain behind will keep doing what they do, trying to make life miserable for the rest of us.

But that’s the way of service-to-self, manipulating and controlling for personal or group gain. In some ways I pity them. For it’s the only way to get love that they know. It’s a long, dark road home they’re taking, and they deserve our thanks for creating the contrast by which do many are awakening. They have my thanks and sympathy — but not my compliance.

It probably is going to be a rough ride out there, but keep your eyes focused on where you want to go, to a world of peace, prosperity and true freedom. It won’t be perfect (we’ll still have work to do), but it will be better than this.

The storm will blow, but it won’t blow us away. I trust those who are evolving will weather it better than the rest, and that providence will arrange for our protection from its worst.

You’re getting better every day. I know you’ll meet whatever challenges that crop up along the way, hopefully with peace and grace. So keep the faith. Give thanks for all you have and are. That approach will help you create something even better.

May the force be with you. God bless you indeed.

Jason Whitlock Thinks They’re Trying to Start a Race War

He starts with Kendrick Perkins’ remarks crying racism in the NBA MVP voting, but moves on to Dan Rather and other media lies that are used to deceive, control and incite us to conflict.

See for yourself.

His message (and mine): look beyond the narrative. Don’t let them manipulate you to serve their ends. Open your eyes and heart so you can build a better tomorrow, and avoid the dystopia they’re trying to serve us.

What Does Ascension Have to Do With Standing Against the Storm?

My readers know that I have encouraged them to “stand,” Why is that? And what does standing against the Storm have to do with their Ascension, or that of humanity, into 4th Density consciousness?

First some background. Ascension is all about expanding consciousness to begin knowing what more you are than what you know yourself to be. That knowing of Self leads to the release of certain beliefs and perceptions that lock you into a perspective that this 3D reality is all there is, and that you are the confusing mishmash of thoughts, emotions and actions that conducts your affairs in this world.

The Storm, on the other hand, is that onslaught of synchronistic events now assaulting our world — and possibly your life — that is forcing you to confront how you see and relate to the world around you. It is a series of events that, taken together, act much like a hurricane that requires you to prepare to meet the force of its winds and rains, shuttering your windows and then riding out the storm, hoping and praying it doesn’t blow you away with it.

It need not be as sinister as the theft of your freedoms or attempt to manipulate humanity’s future like is happening right now at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos. It can be something as common as a personal or business relationship gone sour in which you were sorely wronged that threatens to wreak havoc on your life and affairs.

What is important about all of this is that you must know and stand for yourself and what you believe is right (generally as guided by your inner voice), not only for the benefit of your own personal affairs, but also to do justice for your soul that demands recognition and alignment of you and your life with the best it holds for you inside.

That doesn’t mean you have to win. That’s not up to you, though your will, determination and effort will have a lot to do with it.

What it does mean is that you have to put your fear and hesitation aside and take the leap of faith that this is what you must do and that somehow and some way things will work out. Your back is to the wall, and you’re being forced to fight like hell for what you believe in and know is right.

This is no time to go along to get along, nor to hedge your bets and settle for something less than whatever will allow you to live with yourself and your life when the battle is done, however it turns out, knowing you gave it your all.

In short, standing against the storm may at some point require you to push all your chips to the center of the table, to borrow a metaphor from the game of poker. And though it may portend life and death consequences to you or those you love, this is indeed a game being played by the Presence within through the consciousness you know yourself to be (and theirs), to not only meet your needs in this life, but also to advance your journey back to the Creator from which you came.

It is your way of shouting to the Universe, “I matter, and I deserve to be treated fairly and my free will and right to evolve on my own terms should be respected.” And so you bring all that you are to the table, and maybe even all that you’ve acquired or worked to create over the years for yourself and your family, to make sure that it hears your voice.

If you look around, you’ll see many instances of it happening. Those who stood against forced vaccination were making such a stand. So are those who fight to be heard when their voices are stifled or suppressed. The examples are everywhere for those who would see. When you do, draw upon them for strength and inspiration to make your stand when and where you must.

I can’t tell you how or where that will be. Only you will know that for sure, and probably only when you reach the point where you don’t have any other choice.

What’s it got to do with Ascenscion?

Why is this important for Ascension? I’m glad you asked that question. Or at least, I was hoping you were.

Ascension is the process of moving to new densities of consciousness, where greater love and light can flow into and through us into our lives and world. As it does, it requires we let go of many of the old ways of a three-dimensional world that keep us locked into struggle and conflict. One of those ways is acquiescing to power and living on our knees.

In the old ways, if a serf would dare to stand in the presence of his king, he risked having his head cut off for

Are We in a Galactic War?

Chinese balloons aside, there’s a lot of talk going around about UFOs, ETs, aliens, reptilians and Pleiadians these days – not to mention a Galactic War between the Orion Empire and the Galactic Federation.

This war is supposedly trickling down to the earth, playing out in the attempted takeover of humanity by a Deep State/WEF cabal.

Now all of this remains in the realm of conspiracy theories, unsupported by evidence acknowledged by the collective consciousness and those who manipulate it. So far be it for me to state this as absolute fact. Still, it is a possibility worth exploring further and bringing into our awareness.

Here’s an interview that sheds a lot of light on the whole thing. I highly recommend you take a look.

While were on the topic, here’s another with Gregg Braden that I think you’ll want to see, too. Braden is one whose work and opinion I value highly. Maybe you will, too.

And then there’s this:

So now that you’ve watched these videos, what do you think is going on?

When Just Being Alive Has To Be Enough

I grew old much too young. Life saw to that. Illness and surgeries brought lack and limitation. Separation and isolation during my recovery and rehab saw to the rest. And though I’ve tried and tried to overcome them to be and do all that I still wanted, I have not.

It’s not that I can’t do it. In many ways I know more and am better than I ever was. It’s just that I and my circumstances have changed to impose limitations and constraints that I have not yet found a way to overcome.

This puts me in a situation of unrequited desire that allows me no peace, leading me to try this or that in an effort to break through and achieve even a modicum of progress toward my goals, all without success. For those wondering what they are, “world teacher” was the carrot dangled by spirit to drive me on.

Perhaps it’s something we all have to face as we age, thinking we still have something to offer, but the world has passed us by. What we have and are have become insignificant, maybe even irrelevant, to those still playing the game of life out there in the “real” world.

So as I see the world go to hell in a handbag, so to speak, and think I can help, life keeps telling me to just sit back and watch it unfold, powerless to do anything about it.

Perhaps it is this sense of impotence that wears most upon me, and that all my life offers are just more opportunities to watch myself diminish and slip softly toward that good night when my time here is done.

It is a sobering thought, to realize that all that I am and all that I offer don’t matter much any more, at least to anyone other than family and a few friends (thanks, God, for them). But I still try to open eyes and offer ways through the darkness for others, even as my reach and impact continue to diminish.

It’s all I know how to do any more, to empower you to do and become more. Obviously God has other plans.

So I’m left to sit here finding meaning and purpose in what I am not and have not found a way to do, learning to live with myself and the fact that I am less than I hoped to be.

So sometimes, at least now for me, just being alive has to be enough.

God bless you indeed.

Ascension and the Consciousness of Struggle and Conflict

It is hard to navigate the many voices and interests filling our media these days, particularly those of various distortions on the role of spirit, ascension and consciousness in what is currently unfolding. And though I use their channels to speak with you, know that my intention is not to convince you of anything or steer you in any particular direction.

Rather, I only offer my limited perspectives to give you greater awareness of what may be going on within you and in your life, so that you may know more about yourself and have more choice over how you see and deal with whatever life serves up for you.

When you turn on the news, it is filled with stories that trigger fear, anger and hatred. Perhaps their words are heartfelt and meant with good intent, but mostly it seems they all push one agenda and narrative — that your life and future are in jeopardy unless you see things as they do and do what they want. And for many of them, that means giving up your free will and opportunities to exercise it to conform to some shifting (and often intolerant) standards of thought and behavior used to divide us and benefit a chosen few.

This is not my perspective, for it detracts from the peace and joy that are rightfully yours in this 3-dimensional world. Rather, I see all the chaos and turmoil as bringing to a head all of the ills carried within the human vehicle that cause us to act in such harsh and harmful ways to each other and this planet on which we ride.

As such, I welcome the horrors I witness. For even as much as I try to turn away, I know these are the End Times of third density consciousness in this 3D world, allowing us to see and address within ourselves all those attributes that lock us into struggle and conflict. And for that, I am grateful to experience all that it shows me in myself, as well as in the collective and individual consciousness of humanity.

I am one who believes in ascension, having spent life after life working for the upliftment of consciousness and how it manifests in our world. But the ascension I know is not one sudden event that will magically transform our reality into something that it now is not.

Instead, it is a gradual unpeeling of the layers of distortion that separate us from the oneness at our core and the divinity that each of us has inside.

As we do, we expand what we know ourselves to be and grow into greater manifestations of the best we have inside, albeit with many fits and starts along the way.

This life has been about the exercise of free will through struggle and conflict, two closely-related concepts involving the application of will and desire. Fueled by an inner discontent with what is, it leads us to strive to become more than what we have created ourselves and our lives to be.

Naturally, the effort to do this creates catalysts through which we can learn and grow when our desires bump up against the free will and desires of others, as well as the circumstances of our lives that impede our efforts. Conflict is the result, and it plays out in many ways.

Struggle is the natural result of trying to make our lives into something that they aren’t, whether that’s to overcome lack and limitation or the effort required to achieve and become more. Discontent with the status quo provides the impetus for us to try and try again, whether we’re successful in achieving our goals or not. And when we have had our fill of falling short, to learn to live with and within our shortcomings and still find peace and joy.

The powers that be are trying to force their wills upon the people. Some welcome their effort and direction; others do not and only go along kicking and screaming, if at all. How it plays our remains to be seen, but what can be known is that their efforts are triggering a great expansion of consciousness for individuals to consider the kind of lives they want to live, and the kind of world needed to live them in.

Others are acting out long-held resentments and oppression against those they perceive did them wrong and blaming class, race or other differences was reasons to take their retribution, unable to accept that they must somehow move beyond those differences if they are to evolve toward the light. Their opposites too often are willing to meet them on the field of battle (politics and social media) or stand against the views and practices they want to force down everyone’s throats.

To all the combatants I say, good for you that you are growing aware of what you feel inside. Now, learn to let it go. Free yourself of the beliefs over which you fight, and trust that by knowing yourself and bringing the best you find inside into your life, that your conflicts will begin to subside and you will learn to live together in new relationships that honor the truth of each of you.

Currently those in conflict see such relationships in terms of power. Who controls behavior? Who sets the rules? Who will benefit from the spoils of your war? These are the tools of service-to-self, and while some of you have chosen such a path for your return to the light, most of you have not and must find a way to balance the interests of self with others and the source of life within you.

It is this balance with which you struggle. Unable to do so and find a center that works for you, your ego demands you fight to preserve your free will and get what you want, the rights or interests of others be damned.

This conflict will not go away as we ascend into higher levels of consciousness, at least not for a long while. But our ability to see and address the various causal factors at play will grow, and with it we will become more and explore better ways to get along. And thus conflict will provide the rungs of the ladder of ascension that we all — at least, all our souls — want to ascend.

This does not mean not to fight, or to roll over and play dead in the face of harm, oppression or wrongdoing. No, we must stand for the best we know inside, and work to bring it into our reality as best we can. Nevertheless, as our vision lifts and our consciousness brings us new awareness, we will have more tools with which to deal with the difficulties life serves up — always making our way, step by step, to the Creator from which we came.

Maybe you don’t believe in a creator, or in spirit, or in ascension either. If not, that’s okay. Or maybe you believe you have to fight for what you want, and overcome all that gets in your way. That’s okay, too.

But know that your beliefs are creating your reality, and bringing you the experiences you need to get from it. Just don’t put too much faith that what you think you know is all there is, or even right, and that what you want is what you have to get, whatever the cost.

For there is always more. Seek it. Become the more that you are.

God bless you indeed.

Cancer Rates Exploding After Vaxx

I don’t know about you, but I’ve personally seen far too many instances of cancers developing or reoccurring in vaxxed friends and family members to think it’s just coincidence.

Here’s a video with Dr. Ryan Cole explaining why cancers rates are exploding.

Then again, you probably already know why and this just confirms it. Your inner voice told you so.

How Can I Wake Up My Friends and Family?

One of the big questions I hear by those who are awakening is how they can awaken others, especially their friends and family, to get them to just see what we see and want it for themselves.

The short answer is we can’t, that like flowers blooming in the garden, each will awaken in his or her own Divine timing when their souls have had enough of herd mentality and perspective.

That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t share what we’ve found so they can consider what it offers them. Of course show them, and if they want to know more, tell them about your own journey and how it has changed you.

But remember the law of karma as it relates to free will. When we try to impose our wills on others or control their experiences, it sets off waves of karmic ripples that will haunt both your future lives and theirs.

Accept that their continued slumber is creating valuable experience, not only for them and the world, but for you in having to deal with their resistance to another way of seeing things.

Allow all things to be as they are created, including your family and friends. While you can lead a horse to water, you can’t make it drink. So you can’t thrust it upon them and force them to come over to your side.

Besides, what you think you know isn’t all there is. There’s always more. So let go of the need to show you’re right.

With that said, here’s one of the best explanations I’ve heard as to why they won’t listen anyway.

The Coup We Never Knew – Victor Davis Hanson

One of my favorite free thinkers these days is Victor Davis Hanson. He just tends to see things another way. Here’s a recent article of his on The Coup We Never Knew.

The Coup We Never Knew › American Greatness

What happened to the U.S. border? Where did it go? Who erased it? Why and how did 5 million people enter our country illegally? Did Congress secretly repeal our immigration laws? Did Joe Biden issue an executive order allowing foreign nationals to walk across the border and reside in the United States as they pleased?

American Greatness

Hanson raises many questions that need answering. But of course, our government won’t tell us. And if they did, they’d lie.

You know the government isn’t serving we the people very well. But nothing’s going to change until we do. And that means making our stand for doing right by us, instead of the wealthy and powerful and the politicians and bureaucrats who do their bidding.

Of course, you could just sit there and let it wash over you. But maybe, just maybe, that inner voice is whispering in your ear that the time for just sitting there and taking it is over.
