On May 5, 1990, I woke up in an amazing dream. In the dream, I was the leader of an elite American team of scientists and engineers racing to beat our Soviet counterparts in building the first Starship. Even though our respective governments wanted our projects shrouded in secrecy, both teams were aware of the other and the progress each was making. The leader of the Russian team and I were close friends, and members of both teams had worked together on previous multinational projects. Driving us, more than friendly competition, was a growing concern for the safety of humanity. It was generally believed that the earth was in imminent danger of being destroyed – if not by natural disasters first, then by the self-serving ideology of mankind itself.
Both construction crews were working around the clock to build Starships. Similar in design, each was a massive globe, designed to carry many thousands of people and species of plants and animals. Each was a modern day Ark built to preserve the seed of humanity in the face of almost certain human extinction.
The size of each ship was so immense we knew we couldn’t keep them hidden from public view forever. I remember leaning against the metal rail of the observation deck outside my office, built halfway up one of the surrounding mountain walls. From this elevated and distant vantage point, I could think in larger terms and maintain an overall view of our progress. In the growing darkness of the cool summer evening, I watched as a large curved section of the ship’s hull rose into place for welding.
The sense of urgency surrounding this project created a palpable tension in the valley air that yearned for release through the ship’s completion. Every member of the team vibrated with excited anticipation. Like Noah, we all believed the very survival of humanity was at stake!
Waking up from this lucid dream, I knew we would finish building our Starship and get it launched before disaster struck. The impact of the dream was so powerful I drew several sketches of it before getting out of bed. Within days, I hired an artist to create a more sophisticated drawing. She suggested we layer an image of the earth on the ship’s surface to personalize it.

While the starship we created is only a drawing of the starship in my dream, it serves the same purpose. It symbolizes our need and intent to change. What we do with that intention will determine the result. We are the Starship and the fuel to carry ourselves to safety. We are the power and the means for our own salvation. WE are the change we’re waiting for!

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having (creating) a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Instead of money, power and privilege, would love, truth and joy be better measures of success? One isolates us in the material world of separation, scarcity, and competition while the other encourages us to see both our oneness with and separation from All That Is. It reminds us that we’re not only products of creation; we’re creation itself! Using love, truth and joy as our measures of success provides us with a moral compass. It encourages us to live for the love of Being and Creation, not run from the fear of suffering and death. It inspires us to look inside and out for what works best and makes us happiest, individually and collectively.
“How you define yourself and the world around you, forms your intent, which, in turn, forms your reality.” – Seth
We create reality from what we choose to think and feel about ourselves and All That Is.
If we don’t consciously choose our beliefs, we unconsciously absorb them from our surroundings.
If beliefs, attitudes, values and expectations create our reality, can we afford not to question them?
What others will not or cannot do for us, we must do for ourselves.
The secrets of the universe lie hidden in the shadows of our experience. Look for them!
Affirm what you believe!
