Listen to Penney's Interview on Global Entrepreneurs Radio
Leadership Transformed Talk by Penney Peirce, Chicago 2014 - Parts 1 and 2
what is it like the moment before you release all memory of the painful past?
right then, when you fully feel the lifetimes of pointless thought
invested in reciting litanies of “what I don't have,”
“what I can't or won't experience,”
“how I can't feel love because no one gives it the right way,”
or “how I feel alone—with people or without them”?
right then, when none of it matters anymore?
what is it like when you release the twisted benefit of feeling bad
because you ignored opportunities to love and create joyfully?
what is it like when you come fully present
in spite of having matched other people's limited vision,
in spite of indulging in the stimulation of adrenaline,
in spite of the adolescent tendency to project rage and blame onto others
when really you were just afraid to feel the fear in them and you?
in that moment, the old is SO old
the mistakes so idiotic, archaic, antediluvian
even remorse seems stupid;
to punish yourself for wasting all that time
seems appealing for a tiny moment
then you suddenly know:
one present moment full of the real you
experienced fully by the real you
spreads out through all time
healing past, future, and all suffering souls
—the magic of the Midas touch—
and what freedom looms!
what is it like when you step into that overwhelming freedom
where you are entitled to any talent, creation, and reality?
where you have unlimited help
and are supported by the soft cloud of love on every side?
all you did that you thought so bad
is now unseen, unknown, and nonexistent
the Others are You!
when you are clear they are too
and now the joke:
YOU created the suffering world
the Others suffered to be with you in your world
agreed with you out of love
and you agreed with the Others who played at suffering
to be with them—because you, too, love
now, no waste, no sacrifice
it was all a creation, all an imagination, all a belonging
now, the freedom is a belonging
now, the love-world is a belonging
was, and is, all, always
arising and dissolving in the Belonging

What Wags the World — A New Book
I am interviewed, along with 29 others, in this book full of conscious awakening stories. Here's the description and list of other interviewees:
Dear Penney Peirce
I am honoured to be publishing What Wags the World: Tales of Conscious Awakening, edited by Julie Clayton and Miriam Knight. This is an extraordinary book, insightful and uplifting, allowing the reader to have an instant shift in consciousness.
What Wags the World records the experiences of more than 35 people—authors and filmmakers— from widely different backgrounds who have had profound, often mystical or paranormal experiences that gave them extraordinary perceptions of an interconnected and multidimensional universe. These otherwise “ordinary” people describe how these awakenings changed their understanding of the world and how it works, how their lives changed as a result, and pass on the gifts of wisdom, insight, and compassion they have gained.
What Wags the World is a topical and compelling collection of conscious awakening stories from more than 30 authors and filmmakers. Each contributor describes life-changing experiences that resulted in extraordinary transformation within their own life, and realizations of an interconnected and multidimensional universe. Their understanding of the world and how it works has been so profoundly changed that they feel compelled to share their story and pass on the gifts of wisdom, insight, and compassion they have gained.
Miriam Knight is the founder of New Consciousness Review (ncreview.com)—a showcase for the people, books and films inspiring personal and global transformation, and host of New Consciousness Review Radio. Julie Clayton is an editor of NY Times bestsellers and award-winning books on new consciousness, and Reviews Editor for New Consciousness Review.
