  • To each of my children:
    To each of my grandchildren:
    To each of my great grandchildren, not yet born:

    This is the time of The Shift.

    And this is a letter my parents could not have written to me.

    History is not in the past any longer. It is right here, right now. We humans are entering into a period of change greater than any time since man came down out of the trees. It is the most dangerous and exciting time humanity has ever faced.

    For whatever reason, you arrived to be here for The Shift. Perhaps you came as an observer, perhaps as an ignorer....or perhaps as a participant. Yet you will be participating, regardless. You have no choice about that. Your world will be neither the world your parents knew nor the world of your grandparents. It will be uniquely yours.

    They say that there are three kinds of people. Those who make things happen. Those who notice what is happening. And those who wonder what happened. Choose which kind you are. Most people you know will remain, by default, in the last group. I urge that you not be among them. Step out as your own person.

    Your formal education, whether in your past, your present or your future, has not prepared you for this critical time. Nor will it. You will have to take matters into your own hands and educate yourself. My generation, now the Omega generation, cannot teach you. You are smarter, more insightful and many of you seem to have been born ‘computer-ready.’

    You have the internet as the most powerful informational tool ever invented. Use it. Discover what is going on... and what is underneath what is going on. Everything you will need to know is there. Everything you need to be... is inside you.

    So question. Question everything. Even question your own questioning. Read. Dialogue. Form groups of co-creators. Think. And think by writing. Ask basic questions like these:

    “Who am I, Where am I and Where am I going?” “Is the Cosmos dead or alive?” “For what purpose was I born this time?” Ask these, not to just get answers but rather to live powerfully inside the questions.

    Read books, for there are wise writers who have been looking deeply for decades and they report what they see, what they analyze and what they intuit.


    My generation and my parent’s generation have not prepared an easy way for you. We have made it difficult. We did not intend it to be so. You may be angry with us, either now or later, but remember this ― we have made it interesting. And you came here because this world of space and time is very interesting indeed. Our generations made our way and you and others of your generations will make your way.

    This is your unique and magnificent life. Own it fully and have it be full of joy and creativity regardless of circumstances.

    I send you my eternal love, trust and compassion.
    Your Father, Grandfather, Great-grandfather
