Life, the Quality of


If you are reading this, you have it, life that is. Not only are you alive, but you are also aware, not only are you aware but you are intelligent as well. I can write these things with a high level of certainty based upon self-evidence and obviousness. As intelligent aware beings we experience life. I also believe this is true of everyone as well. What differs between you, me and the next person is our experience of life, but even there, there is commonality which enables us to communicate with each other, which enables us to share experiences and interests, likes and dislikes. Experiencing life is not limited to human beings. This should be obvious as well, there are many life forms which inhabit this planet we live on, many that we are aware of, and possibly many that we are not. We are often forgetful of the facts that all life forms innately have some sort of awareness and some sort of intelligence as well. Consider this last sentence the next time you mindlessly harm another life form.

This brings to mind the reason why I’m writing this in the first place. The reason is to express the value of life, and the value of quality of life which we all share and aspire towards.

I think we can all agree it is not enough just to be alive. A person in a coma is alive. None of us would choose that as a life expression if given the choice; Do you want to spend your life in a coma for, let’s say 75 years, then die, or do you want to spend your life experiencing all that life has to offer, moving about freely and easily, seeing, smelling, tasting, touching your surroundings? Laughing, crying, singing, dancing, sleeping and dreaming?

Regardless of who you are, or where you live, the primal instinct for each and every one of us is to survive. Yes, there are some who do not wish to survive, but I submit that they didn’t start out with that attitude; I submit that the quality of their life has contributed to such a life ending attitude. So, the quality of life is again at issue and therefore is a motivator which urges each of us on to a better life experience, not only for ourselves but others as well.

What will people do to experience a better life and what motivates them to do those things?

What motivates you to do what you do? Are you motivated by fear or by love? The quality of your life experience is largely determined by which of these is your motivator.

Fear has long been used as a means to manipulate and control others. Fears finger prints can easily be observed everywhere we look. Why is the evidence of fear so prevalent, because it is effective? I think we can all agree that it is effective, and most of us can attest to how powerful it is and shaping our lives, our choices and what we do. Take a moment to consider the quality of your own life as it is constrained via the influence of fear. Is this the quality of life you want for yourself? Is there a better way to live this life? I think the clear answer is Yes!

Recently I was talking with a friend about dealing with her children. She said something I’ve heard before, something which has been repeated more than once, springing from the lips of people across the world in many languages; “I’d rather be feared than loved.” What does that tell you? It tells me that many people believe fear is more powerful than love, and it may certainly seem to be true.

This brings me back to the quality of life issue, so let’s look at the quality of life where fear is the motivating factor and the quality of life where love is the motivator.

The quality of life where fear is the motivating factor.

In order for fear to be established, something of great value must be threatened. The more real the threat, the more powerful the fear, the more powerful the fear, the greater control those engendering the fear can wield. Because we value life so much, the threat of loss of life is often the easiest mode of establishing control, then the loss of quality of life is also somewhere in that fear factor. Fear is based upon hurt, harm, destruction and loss.

An example of how fear is established.

Mother: “Pick up your toys.”

Child: ….

Mother: “I said pick up your toys or I’ll spank you.”

Child: ….

Mother: Takes the child and spanks him on the bottom, which startles and shocks the child who begins to cry. Once again, the mother says. “Pick up your toys now or I’ll give you another swat.”

Child: Picks up his toys.

Why did the child pick up his toys? Because he didn’t want to be spanked again, it hurt and scared him.

So, the next time the mother wants the child to do something the spanking looms as a threat within the mind and memory of the child who doesn’t want to be hurt or scared; therefore he complies with his mother’s demand. Not because he wants to, not because he loves and respects his mother, but because the quality of his life experience is threatened.

I bet most of you reading this, can relate to this example as something very similar probably happened to you at a very early age. Not only once, but many times, and sometimes we got spanked but went ahead and ignored the threat until we got spanked harder, and so on. So the escalation of threat is always part of the effectiveness when applying the fear factor. You can see evidence of this on the TV news all the time called Terrorism. Why is there terrorism? Because it works.

Those who promote using the fear factor as a means to an end may seemingly enjoy the benefits of their manipulation and control of others, but in using fear as a means of control, a bit of their illustrious beautiful presence in being is tarnished and no longer available as part of their quality of life experiencing. This is evident in their lack of compassion, their heartlessness, their cruelty. The more one uses fear as a tool to control others, the higher the price for using that tool becomes. And the price paid is in loss of the enjoyment of life, the joy of life. The joy of life is the highest quality of life expression, so while those wielding the sword of fear may benefit materially, spiritually, they are poor and empty. You can therefore see why someone who has abused the fear factor might proclaim, “I’d rather be feared than loved.” The reason is because fear is the only thing left to them. When fear is the only thing left for you, it rules your life, you don’t trust anyone, and everyone is your enemy. This is what those who abuse fear find as their ultimate reward.

The quality of life where love is the motivating factor

The qualities of love define the values of it as a supportive expression in life. Love is creative, life supporting and sustaining. Life begets life via love. Love cherishes and values, therefore promotes growth, caring, sharing, guiding and protecting those we cherish and value within our life experiencing. These are qualities substantially opposite to those of fear. Unlike fear which is based upon lack of trust, love’s foundation is firmly established on consistency and trust which engenders supreme caring and willing abiding.

Let me restate the prior example, this time where love is the motivating factor in driving the scenario.

Mother: “Pick up your toys.”

Child: ….

Mother: Goes over to the child, distracts him from what he’s doing by giving him a big hug and kiss. “You know I love you so much, don’t you?”

Child: Smiles, and nods to his mother, as he enjoys the mother’s positive loving attention. He hugs his Mommy back.

Mother: “Come on, help me pick up these toys, okay?”

Child: “Okay.”

Instead of making it a chore, the mother makes it an enjoyable game they both play together. This enhances their relationship because she provides him with the example of a happy loving being. Children emulate those they value in their life experiencing, so taking a loving and caring approach to life experiences promotes that behavior in the children as well.

This example may seem farfetched. You might say, “Yeah right, like that’s ever going to happen like that.” Well, you may be right, it might not actually happen like that, but when love and caring is the motivating factor, creativity can come in to play, and whatever the experience is, it can be an enjoyable one.

When love is the motivating factor for encouraging others to do what you ask them to do, they are more likely to choose to do what you ask because of their mutual love and caring attitude as well as mutual respect. You will also notice a big difference in the language of a loving approach when compared to a fear based approach. In the loving approach, one would ask the other to do the thing while in the fear approach; one would tell the other what to do without allowing him/her the freedom of choice. So you see, love promotes freedom of choice while fear restricts freedom of choice.

It is good to be mindful of our motivators, of our attitudes and of the quality of our life experiencing because being mindful of these things opens us to the possibilities of change. Not only the possibilities of change, but change for the better.

I’m certain we all want to enjoy life fully. By adopting love as your motivating drive, you can certainly enable such a life. If your heart has been tarnished by the effects of fear, you can begin to wash away the tarnish with the balm of love. The wonderful thing about love is it’s forgiving nature. You can be welcomed back in to the Father’s house with open arms when love is the foundation of life. When fear is the foundation of life, there is no forgiveness, now open arms, only locked doors.

I have a key right here to give you. This key unlocks those doors and opens them so you can find forgiveness within.

Abide within the realm where love is supreme.

Vibrational States in Being (Frequency States)

Vibrational States in Being (Frequency States)

General Background information

I’ve written about vibrations before, stating that everything is a manifestation of vibrating energy. Other teachers speak to this fact as well, for instance Abraham, as brought forth by Esther Hicks, often says we are vibrational beings and that the law of attraction is a vibrational law.

I’ve stated before that a characteristic of energy is that it vibrates and that there is a scale of frequencies for this vibrational energy. I don’t know the range of this scale, as far as I know, it could be infinite, but I do know that within that scale are specific frequencies which are consistent and persistent. That is to say, for instance, the frequency of 1 Hz is always 1 Hz. It is consistent and persistent. So with this understanding, one can extrapolate this understanding and apply it to every frequency within the scale of vibrational energy. Whatever the defined frequency is, it is consistent and persistent. (This is very important to grasp and understand.) This is important because if you can identify a specific frequency, you can attune to it, and by attuning to it, you can experience that frequency. And, if you can experience that frequency, you can remember it, and if you can remember it, you can choose to experience it again by recalling the memory of it and thereby attuning to it once again, drawing it into your sphere of experience. If you don’t have a conscious memory of a specific frequency, you can become aware of it by searching for it. So for instance, while you don’t consciously know what the 1 Hz frequency feels like, you can know that it does exist. Knowing that it does exist enables you to seek it out, or attune to it which brings us to the idea of attraction about which Abraham primarily speaks.

Everything is a manifestation of vibrational energy. What we perceive through our senses in this human body, are not just one frequency at a time, but a multitude of frequencies in combination which present, express and therefore are experiencable to us as our life in human beingness.

Within the scale of frequencies, there are ranges of frequencies or spectrums which are generally and broadly identifiable as light, sounds, taste, smell and touch. And narrowing those ranges down, for example, one can experience within the light spectrum a range of colors, within the spectrum of sound, one can experience a range of sounds and the same is true of taste, smell and touch. In other words, there isn’t just one frequency of light, but derivations of that spectrum of frequencies which we experience through our human senses as what we perceive as colors also in a range from magnitude and intensity. (Dark and bright being magnitude or intensity of the specific frequency.) In the same way, each spectrum (sound, taste, touch, smell,) encompasses variations which each can be experienced with varying intensity.

Within the total spectrum of vibrational energy one can expect an infinitely rich and diverse library of unique vibrational states which are available and therefore experiencable. Remember, each of these vibrational states is consistent and persistent.

What I identify as myself, in this human body, as Jerry Dechant, is a compilation of vibrational energy in being. As I consistently identify with and therefore attune to this mix of vibrational energy in expression, I maintain my “identity” as Jerry Dechant, recognizable to those who perceive me as the same Jerry Dechant they’ve met or known before. This is not really true though, because I am really not the same vibrational mix now as I was a moment ago, the truth is, neither are you. While we may remain substantially the same, we are constantly adjusting, remixing, re-attuning vibrationally from moment to moment.

A sense which most humans don’t understand as a sense, and therefore may not effectively make use of is what we identify as emotions. Similar to the other senses, there is an emotional scale of vibrations or a spectrum of vibrational energy expression. Emotional experiences may generally be understood as good feelings and bad feelings. These emotional sensations are actually feedback which enables us to actively attune to a chosen frequency or compilation of frequencies. The emotional sensations therefore are indicators which inform us of our proximity to our point of attention and or focus. That last statement is true only when we understand the function of emotional sensations. If we don’t understand why we have emotional experiences, we may erroneously attribute these experiences. An example of this idea is may be expressed as follows, “You make me so very happy!” or on the other end of the spectrum, “You really piss me off!” If you adopt the understanding expressed by these statements, you will want that other person to be present all the time because he/she “makes you very happy” and if you want to remain very happy, you will need that person to continue to make you very happy, won’t you?

Also, if you believe that someone pisses you off, you will want to avoid that person unless you enjoy being pissed off.

The results of this misunderstanding of the emotional experiences are very different than the results when a proper understanding of these emotional sensations is grasped.

If you understand that the emotional experience of being “very happy” is an indicator of being attuned to what you desire, you will understand that the experience of being very happy isn’t given to you by someone else, but rather the result of being attuned to your own desire.

Likewise, the experience of being “pissed off” is an indicator of being very far out of attunement with what you desire. With the proper understanding, one can avoid getting very pissed off by monitoring the emotional sensations and if these experiences begin to move towards being pissed off, redirecting attention and focus so that instead of moving further out of alignment with your desire, you again move towards your desire.

In this way, the emotional sensations are our navigation system which enable us to effectively move through the infinite range of vibrational experiences as life unfolds within us, around us and before us.

States: Attracting, Neutral and Repelling

Attracting State

Part of the problem people have with effectively using the law of attraction is they don’t adequately understand the emotional experiences as a guidance system. They don’t understand the nature of vibration, therefore they may want something very strongly, but because they lack the valuable understanding of their emotional experiences, they may not effectively attract what they desire.

To correct this, I suggest understanding and experiencing what the state of attracting feels like. How that manifests for you in your life experience may be uniquely yours, but the feeling of the attraction state is one of those persistent and consistent frequencies, which once you know about and attune to, will facilitate the effective application of the law of attraction within your life experience.

This requires an experiential knowing. So, you will have to find this Attracting State within your own being by first thinking about this attracting state vibration. What does this vibrational state feel like? If feels like your presence is drawing to you like a magnet draws metal particles to it’s surface. Generally, this attracting state feels very good or what might be understood as positive emotional experiences. The magnitude of this feeling is determined by your attunement with the attracting state frequencies. There is very little if any effort necessary when attuned to this vibrational state in being. The only effort necessary is that of applying attention and focus upon that which you desire.

Take a few minutes right now to sit quietly, with your eyes closed to find the attracting state feeling. Once you find it, attune to it, and reside there for a time so that you become more familiar with this sensation.

Neutral State

The Neutral State is the state where there is no attracting or repelling occurring. One can maintain a neutral state and move through life neither attracting nor repelling anyone or anything. This is a peaceful state, a relaxed state. This is the state you are in when you aren’t actively attracting or repelling vibrational expressions. In this state, it is easy to move through a crowd of people without attracting or repelling anyone, which is experienced as easily moving through the crowd.

Take a few minutes right now to sit quietly, with your eyes closed to find the neutral state feeling. Once you find it, attune to it, and reside there for a time so that you become more familiar with this sensation.

Repelling State

This is an unnatural state because our natural state is to attract. Because this is an unnatural state, it is the state which requires a great deal of energy to maintain. It is like being in a river with a very strong current, and trying to swim against the current. It is certain the current of the river is more consistent and persistent than the individual is able to move against it. This state therefore includes a great deal of struggle, frustration and fatigue.

Even though the Repelling state is unnatural, you are probably more familiar with this state than the other two, in particular if your life has been a struggle, if you’ve experienced frustration over and over again, and or if you are constantly exhausted.

You may take a few minutes right now to sit quietly, with your eyes closed to find the repelling state. Once you find it, attune to it so that you have an actual experience of how unnatural this state is.

Now that you’ve experienced these states, (I hope you did take the time to experience them as I suggested,) the next step is to actively and or intentionally move from one state to another.

If you are predominately experiencing the repelling state, actively focus upon attuning to the neutral state because that is the easiest state to access from the repelling state. All you have to do is relax. Relaxing is letting go, putting aside any concerns, issues or intentions other than just being here now. Breathe easily. Take an easy deep breath, and then just let it go.

Actively attuning to these states.

Actually, if you participated in the suggested experiences, you actively attuned to each one of these vibrational states. You may therefore understand how to intentionally attune to these states, or move out of one state into another. This is done through present moment awareness and conscious intentional focus of attention.

The neutral state is an excellent vibrational state to attune to because it enables you to “energize” yourself. It is also be an excellent state to observe from. Observe your physical sensations, your surroundings and people from this neutral state. Observe your emotional experiences from this neutral state in particular when you observe thoughts which come drifting through your field of consciousness.

To be an effective applier of the law of attraction, you will certainly want to actively attune to the attracting state primarily and secondarily the neutral state for your periods of rest. If you primarily reside in either of these two states, you will likely begin to find your energy level increasing, your ability to accomplish a great deal with minimal effort and maximum enjoyment will become the norm for you.


I think a better word is Homeplay. I’d rather play than work, so lets begin to call it Homeplay instead of homework.

For your homeplay, practice actively attuning to the attracting state. Think about it, feel it, let it encompass your being. Reside within this state. Alternately, practice attuning to the neutral state. Like anything else, the more you practice, the more you play within these vibrational states, the easier it is to maintain them and or enter them at will.

The results will be amazing, to say the least. There is a cornucopia of fulfillment awaiting your accepting it into your life experiencing. Residing in the state of attracting also implies a relaxed open state where that which you’ve previously expressed a desire for easily and effortlessly is drawn into your life experience.

As you play within this state of attraction focus upon what you desire rather than what you want to avoid or don’t want. Whatever you focus upon within this state will be drawn to you, so be mindful of what you are attracting.

The last but not least important point to reiterate is to be mindful of what you focus upon and intentionally focus upon what you desire.

Dreams DO come true, it will happen to you!

Best regards,

The Observer

The Observer

Deep within at the center of my being, in the stillness, in the peace, in the calm, in the undifferentiating is the Observer.

While life is happening, things coming and going, movement around me as well as within this body as the cells grow, blood flows, heart beats, lungs breathing in and out, eyes see, nose smells, fingers feel the touch of the keys on my computer keyboard, ears hear sounds around me, and who is me, but the ever-present Observer at the center of my being, in the stillness, in the peace, in the calm, in the undifferentiating being.

As I sit quietly, I notice. . . this Observer is the same now as it was when I Observed my first step, as I laid sleeping, dreaming peacefully in my comfortable bed, last night, last year, a decade ago even before I was born into this body, I have always been the Observer and the one experiencing this beingness.

I notice the space of stillness remains stillness. I notice the space of peace remains peaceful. I notice the space of calm remains calm even amidst the turmoil and chaos that swirls around it like leaves being blown to and fro on a windy fall day. While the waves of the ocean swell and build up into huge masses of water which sometimes come crashing back into the mass of water from which they sprung forth. At the depth of the deepest ocean. . . calm stillness, even with the waves crashing above. . . stillness.

Walking through life, I find I don’t always notice myself as the observer, I get caught up in the activities, in the attitudes, in the movements of cause and effects. I identify with this body as though this is who I am, what I am. And even as this occurs, the Observer within notices observes.

How expansive is the stillness, how expansive is the peace, the calm? How far into the manifest world of chaos and movement does the Observer’s realm reach? How far can it reach? As the Observer it reaches out to infinity, and even amidst the movements, the activities, the emotions which range from despair to bliss, its realm is because there is no size to it, no dimension, no boundary except that which I place upon it, and even that boundary is just another observable.

How different is this Observer who reads this from the Observer who writes this? No difference.

The saying, Namaste means, I bow to that place in you, that when you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.

The Observer is his place where we are one. The observer is everyone, and no one at the same time. It is everyone in that it uses these vehicles to observe; it is no one in that it does not attach to any one particular vehicle, it does not identify or limit itself.

Notice. . . That which is. . . Thoughts, sensations, feelings, sense perceptions. Who Observes this?

I do, even without saying it.

Having now experienced this, I know this exists, I know I reside here within this stillness, peace, calm for I am this stillness, peace and calm.

At the eye of a huge destructive storm is stillness, peace, even beauty all this while the storm rages and moves across the water and land, the stillness, peace and beauty remains ever present at the center of the storm. Eventually the turmoil of the storm dies down or another way to perceive it is that the peace expands replacing the turmoil.

Let the peace expand and thereby replace the turmoil, the storms that express as your life, that is, if you prefer the peace to the turmoil. It makes no difference to the Observer which choice you make. In both cases, it remains the Observer. It might make a difference to you as the experiencer though.
