A number of weeks ago, I began a self experiment. The experiment is to stay in a continual state of peace by remaining in the gap throughout the day. I will have to say, it has not been as difficult as I first thought it might be. In addition, there has been a series of significant synchronicities that have appeared. I will share them with you.
First, let me back up a bit. You see, about a year ago, I was struggling with keeping my mind calm. This hadn’t really been a problem for me before. I always set aside time to just sit with no noise, usually outdoors if possible, a ride to the beach, somewhere quiet near running water, or just in a quiet space in the house.
Up until 2-1/2 years ago, this was pretty easy to do. Now, due to changes in the family, there is constant noise and distraction. The only quiet place is on the patio. As I now care for two people fairly full-time, getting away to those quiet places rarely happens.
But I was convinced there had to be a way to remain in peace amidst seeming chaos, or at least a constant bombardment of noise of some kind or other. I began doing more meditation. I read and used Wayne Dyer’s Getting in the Gap program. Then I began to meditate more on The Gap. In that space in between where we are most connected because we are open to universal energy, I wondered how would it be possible to stay there.
I asked myself where exists the biggest gap so that it is easy to stay there with little effort? Can you guess? Space has such vastness between matter – it is the biggest gap. So, I began imaging myself sitting in space – in the quiet, surrounded by quiet, openly connected to Source. So, in the moment, I try to hold the image of space continually in mind. Focusing on empty space has stopped the mind monkeys from the constant chatter and helped to block external noise.
I invite you to try this technique and share your experience in the comments section.
Why is peace so important in our daily lives? Well, one reason is that when we are in a state of peace, we are at our highest creativity. We are most receptive to what the universe sends to us. In this state of receptiveness, it is much easier to live on purpose, to BE on purpose, with no effort.
As I began BEING in a State of Peace, many things began coming my way. I learned of a remarkable woman by the name of Mildred Norman Ryder. You may know of her as the Peace Pilgrim. At the age of 44, Mildred found her purpose, her calling was to be a Pilgrim for Peace. For the next 28 years of her life, she lived this calling, she walked the walk and talked the talk. But her transformation didn’t occur overnight. Mildred had a spiritual journey that lasted for 15 years leading up to her “calling.” Mildred believed that the key to attaining inner peace was to overcome selfishness. This is true. Letting Go is the process of releasing self, becoming selfless. It is very much a spiritual journey. As Mildred progressed through her spiritual journey, she finally reached “inner peace” and found a way to remain there. It was at this point in time, that her Ambassadorship as Peace Pilgrim began.

One of the things that has fascinated me over the years is that the fingerprint of the Creator is everywhere. Back in the early ‘90s when I was struggling with an overgrowth of systemic yeast, I tried blue-green algae. Algae is a superfood. Unless it is harvested from a clean source and processed properly, I do not recommend its use. One of the things that struck me at the time was that the nucleus of chlorophyll and the nucleus of hemoglobin are almost identical! The only difference is the center atom – in chlorophyll it is magnesium, in hemoglobin it is iron. But the most remarkable thing is that both are Star Tetrahedron. I call the Star Tetrahedron the fingerprint of God.
A tetrahedron is a four-sided pyramid. A Star Tetrahedron is a double tetrahedron, an octahedron. In its plane form, you would recognize it as the “Star of David”; in its spherical form, you would recognize it as the universal symbol of the atom.
As I began meditating more on the Star Tetrahedron, more synchronicities came my way. In particular, communication with one friend led to myriads of information coming my way. Two nights ago, I came across an article in the International Journal of Humanities and Peace, entitled Achieving Peace: A New Paradigm, Part II, (Tetrahedron and the Game).
Here was a direct connection to Peace and the tetrahedron. Yes, there is a connection between the two. One of the thoughts put forth by the author, Mark A. Siegmund, Ph.D., is that “achieving peace is a global…problem.” Why this problem prevails is because “global civilization, at its very core, believes and accepts that Nature’s design is based on scarcity – despite the scientific evidence manifesting this century, instructing us that, in fact, sufficiency, or plenitude, is the “normal” condition in Universe, and by extension, on earth.” (emphasis mine)
The lack that exists – or appears to exist, exists because it is what the majority have believed and manifested over time. In fact, lack doesn’t exist at all except in the temporal reality created within the mind of man. Remember that Albert Einstein had said, “Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”
If everyone in the world would stop, take some time and look at nature, all you would see is abundance, abundance everywhere! There is abundant air. There is an abundance of water. Look at a piece of fruit or vegetable, there is an abundance of seeds to grow more food. From one comes many. Is the world ready to shift its thinking? I believe so.
In abundance, there is only abundant health. Our bodies were created with a regenerative function. They were designed to heal themselves. If given the proper environment and support, there would be abundant health and well-being.
This article also re-introduced me to someone whose life has fascinated me. His name is R. Buckminster Fuller. R. Buckminster Fuller had a unique perspective on the Universe. He believed that “the tetrahedron is a form of energy package,” that the Universe in all of its “definable structuring””is tetrahedrally coordinate in rational number increments of the tetrahedron.” In other words, our Universe is “defined” by the tetrahedron.
The tetrahedron is everywhere around us and within us. IT IS. Dr. Siegmund refers to it as “cosmic architecture.”
R. Buckminster Fuller was not only a great thinker and creator, he envisioned a world of peace. An early environmental activist, he was a proponent of alternative energy and efficient use of natural resources always to the greater purpose of world peace.
So, here I was back at PEACE and the TETRAHEDRON. The two things that have absorbed the majority of my thinking time these past few weeks.
