Do you feel that aging is a disease and can be cured? Do you ever wonder what it might be like to live forever? Do you ever think that it is a real possibility for you? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should explore the possibilities further in this exciting new book, by James Strole and Bernadeane, co-founders of People Unlimited
Joy of living is something I find many people take for granted. For physically immortal people it is a fundamental right, something to be grateful for and nurtured. We are alive and plan to stay that way forever. Taking the end from your life releases a true joy that cannot be compared to just the pursuit of happiness. Waking up every day with reasons to live and a purpose for your own existence is a wonderful thing. There is no real joy of living without opening to your physical immortality. A temporary lifespan is felt in the nervous system on a daily basis, causing mental disease and anxiety that manifests in multiple ways, some subtle and some as outright destruction. The cells of the body and the telomeres are responding to the message from the DNA that they only have so many times to replicate and each time with less energy and less lifespan. The mind is trying to cope daily on a deep level with its own mortality. This may not be experienced in the conscious awareness, but it is causing vast amounts of stress and coping behaviors that block the flow of life daily. How much energy can there really be left to experience freedom and joy of living?
I am thankful every day of forever that I have discovered who I am and have found people like myself, my own species. An alive body needs lots of alive stimulation and input to stir up the joy of living and that is where our togetherness comes in. My people and the life I live with them at People Unlimited are the basis of my joy of living. I am filled up with their love and inspiration. I am overflowing, with no end to the flow of life that I can experience. We don’t have to try to be joyful; we just have to get out of our own way. It is an innate response to living without death. True joy comes from within, not from “things” or content as such, although those automatically come along with daily enjoyment of creation. If you would love to experience this kind of joy, there is an open invitation for you to join us at a People Unlimited event. I hope to see you there soon.
New Year’s Launch Kicks Off the New Year with passion, insight and leading edge science The People Unlimited New Year’s Launch, our weeklong winter event, was a tremendous success. This in-depth exploration of radical life extension and physical immortality featured penetrating expressions by James Strole, Bernadeane and others, ushering in what we are experiencing to be an exciting new era of movement.
The event also featured live video presentations by such leading lights of radical life extension as gerontologist Aubrey De Grey, professor of clinical medicine Michael Fossel and David Kekich, founder of the Maximum Life Foundation. Kekich provided insights on how we can embrace radical life extension today, as well as his plans to leverage artificial intelligence to accelerate anti-aging research. De Gray updated us on his expanding efforts, including a new SENS Research Foundation facility in the San Jose area. Fossil spoke in detail about recent developments in molecular biology with direct implications for curing aging, including telomere research.
In embracing unlimited living, the New Year’s Launch explored a range of subjects, including personal health, prosperity, relationships and the prospects of emerging scientific innovations. As always, members shared their personal challenges and expansions in an atmosphere of unequivocal caring and support. In addition, the entertainment performed by PUI members, including singing, dancing, and acting, was outstanding.
In all, it was a profoundly enriching time together, made all the more so by the presence of out of town members, who normally connect with us only via live streaming. It’s powerful when unlimited people come together to focus on expanding both as individuals and collectively. Be sure to attend our next weeklong event, the Summer Celebration, which this year will be held in stunningly beautiful Peaks Resort in Telluride Colorado.
There is an amazing and perfect movement of energy operating within our physical bodies that is forever palpable.....forever generative. We only have to place our attention upon and within our body to understand and feel this. I feel this has always been so....and always will be. As an individual, I have always had an ability to tune into this magnificent presence and when I contemplate the essence of this powerful life force... I am completely turned on. Think about it for a minute. We are the recipients of this astounding gift we call LIFE. How amazing is this? A gift so ever present... so forever moving... so victoriously abounding. For me, embracing this natural flow produces nothing but a joyful alive feeling.......by its very nature this powerful movement seems to desire expansion. How great this is. It wants to be active. This flow will sustain me forever as I vibrate and move within it .... ever constant .....sometimes to the degree that I can not contain my delight in the intense embrace of it. In this, I am discovering my limitations and I am thrilled. Yes... I am the allowing of limitations to my being alive to reveal themselves and to be worked through, and released, so that I may have more joy and well being in my life.
We have a profound effect on one another’s body as we move forward in the flow of life. A friend asked me the other day.....”How can you always be so happy all the time?” The question struck me funny, and for a split second I felt as if I was going to have to defend my mood, for I was hearing from this fellow, a veiled demand for me to stop being happy. I responded by telling him....”I am feeling happy because in my body I feel the joy of my life!” I made a decision in the moment to not respond to his negativity! I thought to myself: I am my own authority here...I will not stop being happy when I am happy. I felt in my gut a sensation.....an in the moment cellular burst ...an awakening! I will not respond to death in this moment....I will not back down....I will not play small.
Remarkably this simple encounter with another live body, provided a huge opportunity to embrace a limitation to being alive for me that I have suffered with my whole life, which sounds something like: “John you should not be”.....or “John you are not worth being”. I do not know the core origin or incident if any, that has fostered this deep ache in me, but the point is that my cells have been holding on to a feeling of rejection that no longer can be sustained in my physically immortal body. I am the letting go of, all the shame and hatred that still resides with in the cells of my physical body. Bernadeane’s expression from a People Unlimited event from months ago still echoes in my body......“Be 100% positive about your bodies ......the Greatness is already there .......Receive it”. She so amazingly inspires me to claim my right to BE in my body ....demanding the perfection that is available therein in such an exultant way.
We have to claim our power . We have to demand our joy. We can direct happiness to our bodies...and when one recognizes and fully embraces the impressionable touch and power that resonates within the body... great freedom is at hand. My physical body is meant to express this joy and abundance. Why qualify life with anything less than that. It is a treasure. It is my life. My flesh is meant to commune and bond with other like bodies.....and when I give in to that movement I am full of happiness. My body has risen up since I declared my physical immortality. I am more in tune. I am more aware. I am a healthier body. I am a richer body. I am physically immortal. I am never going to die. Death is not meant for me. I have always held in my physical body the feeling that I am not meant to suffer. I am not meant to get sick. As a little child, I remember counseling my mother on a day when she was feeling “poorly”. “Ma.....what is wrong?... what hurts?... tell me”. I felt my concern for her deep within my physical body. I don’t know from where it came....perhaps I was triggered by something in my outer world ....I do not know. But it was a real intense feeling... I felt a natural urge in my body to express my desire for something more for my mother. Thru my intention to console ....I became one flesh with my mother in my expression to her. We have the power to heal each other. James Strole speaks eloquently on this idea at almost every People unlimited meeting in some measure or another......”Who are you tonight? Why are you here? Why are you alive? What do you feel about yourself and every cell in your body? Do you feel you can give life to another person in this room? Can you stir the cells and atoms of another persons body?”. James inspires me to be alive within and beyond the immortal community at People Unlimited. In his embrace, the immortal flow of life energy that turns me on is magnified.....it is intensified. And I am raised up. As we rise so does our capacity told more joy........high up that is all there is!
I am grateful that I am a clearly able body and that I have put my flesh in the mist of other bodies who are moving in the direction that calls for a greater capacity to be alive! I am choosing to engage with Bernadeane and James Strole and their direction within the People Unlimited community because they are victorious! They are masters in generating a joyful unlimited living on a daily basis. Their bodies are moving in a momentum actively engaging other bodies towards the very unfolding of a healthy, joyous and prosperous high life. That turns me on! That turns me on! That turns me on! We are forever moving to push back death. In this movement I am with them....looking for the same expansion....the same desire to live full out.......free from limitation......forever!
With Love, John Roman. Raise your vibration to contain more joy at our next People Unlimited event.
The recent People Unlimited weekend event this June highlighted the futility of analyzing and talking about our relationship issues with our loved ones. Different couples and several family members took turns in a de facto "hot seat", while the rest of us looked on and squirmed, watching our own psychodramas being played out with different names and faces. Blaming, apologizing, withholding, forgiving... wow — what else is life, right?
After a particularly poignant exchange between one couple ended in a stalemate, someone else stood up and exclaimed that there has never been, and never will be, any resolution of our issues by talking them out. Our only recourse, he said, is to become larger than the issues that make us feel small, and thereby allow our bodies to express. Someone else chimed in, saying that the best way for two people to expand their communication is to hold one another.
I was really moved, because this is exactly the best advice I have ever received (numerous times), and Diana and I still practice it (most of the time), and teach it in our classes.
In the article below, I expand upon this framework, and share an actual exercise that intimate partners may engage in with each other, a practice that was passed along to me by Kerry and Diane Riley of Australia. I also refer you to their excellent book, Tantric Secrets for Men. The exercise (they call it a "ritual"), may appear a little wordy at first, but it is well worth taking the time to read and practice.
And for all of you reading along and wondering what any of this has to do with physical immortality, it has long been observed that toxic chemistry in our body, brought on by negative thinking and suppressed emotions, is a major cause of disease and death. Breathing, getting grounded, and receiving the touch of another body is Life enhancing. This is a view that must be tested, not believed, so please practice! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Introduction: When talking is NOT working for you and your beloved, it's a good time for each of you to remember your own precious body instead, and physically connect with each other. It's important that the two of you will have made a prior agreement to engage this exercise in times of conflict. It will ground you in your own body, refresh your innate sensual passion, and enliven the expansive and free connection that brought the two of you together in the first place.
So — if your partner requests this practice, even though you might be completely triggered and withdrawn, you will breathe and say "yes". It's okay to notice you don't want to, or you're just not "feeling it" — say yes to the sacred decision you made to honor the peace in your own body, and the pleasurable flow you share with your partner. No matter what. Say yes to keeping the passion for life and the physical bond of loving between the two of you alive.
Refusing to honor this agreement sabotages your own integrity and threatens the very juiciness of safety that your relationship is built upon. Your partner is trusting you enough to drop the argument and ask for harmony. Listen to your partner deeply, and realize that your Life is more important than your ego; your Love is more important than being right. Suppose it is you who has enough free attention to let go first. You could say, “This is not getting us anywhere. I want to be in harmony with you. Let’s do the Bonding Practice. We can discuss this stuff later when we are not so upset. Let’s put our bodies together.”
You (the requesting partner in this case), lie on your back while your partner lies besides you and rests her head on your chest. Place your right arm around her in a nurturing manner. She places her right hand on your heart, and you put your left hand on top of hers. Bend your right knee and place it between her legs, touching her sexual center. Her right leg is bent over yours so her knee touches your genital area.
This connects your heart center (open to give and receive love again), with your sexual center, opening you to vulnerability and intimacy. For her, being held in the nurturing position tends to open her heart center again. And by touching her sexual center with your leg, it reverses her normal reactive behavior to withdraw and shut down.
Use the breath to let go of any tension. If you are very upset, you will find that you will be tensing your body and holding your breath, or you will feel your partner doing this. Breathe in with a long, deep breath through the nose and then sigh as you breathe out through the mouth – ahh! Repeat this at least 10 times, co-ordinating your breaths if you can; otherwise make sure you are both doing the deep breathing. Never allow just one of you to be doing it; both must participate.
As you breathe out, let go of any anger, resentments, or the need to be right. Release all tension in the body, especially in the jaw, neck and shoulders. As you continue with the breathing, allow your mind to become quiet, allow the inner chatter about the argument to be dismissed. Take your awareness instead to the contact points between your physical bodies, especially your opening heart, and feel love, compassion, caring and forgiveness. Feel the warmth of your partner’s hand on your heart center. Focus on nurturing your partner like a child who has been hurt. Focus on that part of her that you really love beyond the part that has upset you.
Partner B ( your lover in this case), focuses on being nurtured and cared for and then shifts her attention to her hand on your heart, healing it and opening you more to love again. If it feels appropriate she can gently move her hand from your heart center to your sexual center, gently cupping this area for a few minutes, while you keep your hand on your heart center. This allows harmony between the emotions and physical sexuality to develop once more. You now exchange roles with your partner, gently repositioning before beginning. You need to spend at least five minutes in each role for it to be effective.
Both turn and face each other and hold each other naturally without your hands holding the heart or sexual centers. Continue to breathe and let go, but do not say anything. Gaze gently into each other’s eyes with love and compassion while tuning into your own “higher self”, where having to be right or having to win the argument is not important. What is important is to keep eye contact and be soft, vulnerable and see the part of your beloved that wants to be loved and wants to love. Act as healers for each other, showing compassion, care and concern for your relationship.
Keep breathing gently and after a minute or so and when appropriate, one says “I’m sorry (we were fighting). I love you”. The other listens, breaths in and internally accepts this. Then she says “I’m sorry too and I love you.” Finish with a hug or a kiss.
It is most important not to say anything like ”I forgive you, but next time...” This would blow the whole process. Do not talk about the issue, just hug and kiss and suggest a cup of tea or a walk. Maybe several hours later, or the next day, you can return and deal with the issue. Dealing with it immediately after the bonding practice is dangerous because you are very open and sensitive when you have trusted enough to say “sorry”.
After you have completed this process, you may not even need to discuss the issue again because you will find that the re-established harmony and balance may well provide a new viewpoint or attitude. If you do discuss it, you may come up with other solutions to the problem which you may not have reached while in a reactive mode.
In reality, neither of you are perfect. You both contributed to the disharmony in some way. By looking within and forgiving and by balancing the energies between you, very often circumstances begin to change.
The Power of Surrender
What you are doing in these three steps is surrendering your ego and honoring your body's true feelings to keep the sexual passion and loving bond between you alive. Vulnerability is not compromise. To surrender and let go is to open to who you always already are, prior to your story. As a result, your relationship is revealed to be a means of honoring not only your needs and wants, but your highest truth.
To love your neighbor (or your partner) as yourself, requires that you freely love your self first. It's all about you!
What is living Unlimited? Living unlimited isn't about a life outside us somewhere, It's about people being unlimited together. It's we the people moving unlimited together for the first time. Unlimited movement, unlimited passion, unlimited love, unlimited feelings for one another. Unlimited expansion, unlimited touching, unlimited feeling in our own bodies. Hunger to be an unlimited person. Be so tired of being around limited people. Be so tired of your own limitations!
