Our mission at Act Always In Love is nothing less than to re-create our world. It is a big goal, but not an impossible one. And you can help!

The simplest way to help is to take part in the Re-creating Our World exercise. There is, of course, much more that you can do. Check out the Get Involved page for more information.

Revolution to Evolution

Revolution to Evolution: Those words are both politically and socially charged. To avoid confusion, we will define carefully what we mean by them.

Revolution – Opposition, often aggressive, to a current system
Evolution – A process of formation, growth and development

In the world today, the majority of people seem to feel that they are not making a difference unless they are opposing something. They develop the mindset of "being helpless" unless they are "fighting the bad guys." They insist that in order to make a difference they have to destroy something that is "wrong." This need for an "oppositional attitude" leads them to try to solve all their problems through revolution, through fighting.

There are many examples including the "war on drugs," the "war on cancer," and the "war on terror." Despite the best efforts of these revolution-based attitudes, there has been little or no improvement. A bit of research will often show that the problem has gotten worse rather than better. In addition, larger numbers of related problems are often created in the process.

Many "progressive" organizations get caught in this trap. They exhaust their resources fighting against other groups or ideas. The more they oppose their opponent, the more their opponent steps up to oppose them. These organizations create an illusion of growth, but their results are often counter-productive. If these groups joined together to address the underlying problems rather than focusing on the consequences, things would more quickly change. The resources and energy that they were wasting on each other could now be used more productively.

Revolution, fighting against whatever is frightening, is not the answer. Progress is not made through opposition and destruction. Violence only leads to greater violence. Focusing our attention and effort on "negative" things only makes them stronger. Revolution leads to mutual poverty and destruction.

Real, long-term change is made, instead, through unity and co-creation – working together to "evolve" more effective systems. By uniting and focusing our efforts on the underlying issues, humanity can progress much more rapidly. Our focus on revolution thinking needs to change to one of evolution thinking. We need to work together to define, create, and begin to implement new solutions.

Evolution, which is based on love and co-creation, is what we need to emphasize.

AAIL and you...

The idea of moving from a revolution-consciousness to an evolution-consciousness is a simple one in theory. In practice, however, it can be difficult to make that shift. This is where the Act Always In Love group comes in.

The first step in creating a more awake and aware world is to begin to be more awake and aware. The more you are in touch with your own inner truth, the more you will be able to share that truth with others. To help you along that path of personal growth we have developed a number of exercises for you to use.

The next step is to begin to work with groups. You can have a much bigger effect on the world in a group than you can alone. Toward that end we have a section of group exercises as well as the group forums so you can connect and share with others.

Finally, and maybe most important we have a small but rapidly growing list of projects you can begin to use today, alone or in groups. With these exercises and projects as well as the rest of our online resources, we hope to make it easy for you to begin to move from revolution to evolution, to begin to reach out and change our world.

The AAIL groupt

There is a massive change (sometimes called "The Shift”) occurring as you read this. It is a world-wide change, with the year 2012 as its anchor point, which is affecting every detail of our lives, from top to bottom. The world has been dominated for an impossibly long time by the ideas of separation, lack, greed, and taking. It is rapidly changing to a place whose fundamental energies are unity, love, joy, and giving. That process has been set underway and the end result is no longer in doubt. We will get there. What is in question is the path we will take to get there, and how long it will take. The answer to those questions will be decided by those of us willing to work toward a better world, starting now.

The primary purpose of this paper is to tell you how.

The secondary one is to give hope to people of all ages, especially the ex-hippies and aging Baby-boomers who see the efforts of their younger years fading away under a barrage of militant capitalism and morally defunct expansionism. This is not “the end of the world.” It is the end of a world-system of control and abuse. It is the birth of a world where peace is actually possible.

I have seen a remarkable number of well-meaning people lately talking about the end of the world. They say AIDS or Bird Flu, Global Warming or The Death of the Bees, Terrorists or The NWO, or any of a thousand other “scares of the moment” will soon destroy it all. This kind of hopeless thinking is shared by so many that the world’s children are suffering. A recent study showed that HALF of children between the ages of seven and 11 are anxious about the effects of global warming and often lose sleep over it. The traditionally more positive people such as New Age and spiritual groups are succumbing as well. An increasing number of posts about horror and the end of the world are being seen on discussion groups and blogs. Maybe the largest group falling under the sway of the global depression scam is that of the aging baby boomers. A well-meaning, intelligent and politically active member of that group recently got angry at me for suggesting the world might be improving. Let’s call her Diane. Diane practically shouted at me when she said, “I am an optimist… and I don’t buy that ‘the world’s getting better’ crap!”

In fact, people are living longer, resources are more available to us, racism is down, oppressive governments are far fewer, women and minority populations have much greater rights than ever, crime rates are remarkably down in major cities all over the world, incidence of disease per capita in much of the world is lower than it’s ever been. There are far greater efforts to protect the environment. Military conflicts are decreasing the world over. Travel is cheaper, easier and safer than ever. The internet provides information and diverse opinions at a scope unbelievable even 20 years ago. Most of the world’s population is healthier, safer, more comfortable, more able to travel, longer-lived, wealthier, and generally better off than any time in the last several thousand years. (Do a Google search for “world getting better” and see what you find.)

If it’s all getting better, then why is there so much bad news? There are three very simple reasons. One, technology is better. 200 years ago if someone was angry at his university, he might beat a few people before he was stopped. Today, the technology is there to easily harm much larger numbers. Two, the news spreads information much faster. 100 years ago, a storm or other crisis would be known about by those who suffered it. Now it is almost instantly known by everyone around the globe. When you watch so much more of the world, you are going to see more painful things. Three, the News is getting darker. I remember 30 years ago seeing the entire front page of the paper dedicated to the city pool being repainted. There were lots of side stories about how it would be more fun and how folks were enthusiastic about it. Back about page D4, there was a tiny one paragraph article saying some 70 people had died in a horrific train accident in India . Now the horror is always on the front page. News is big business now and business is about sales. The more newspapers they sell, the more money they make. And bad news sells better than good news. The world is no worse off than it ever was, you just see more of that bad news than you used to.

I recently ran across a book with a large number of statistics that indicate that the world is improving. The book, The Progress Paradox by Gregg Easterbrook, has received a lot of press, both positive and negative. However, even if he made up 1/3 of his facts, the remaining ones tell such an overwhelming story that the book is worth reading. For those interested enough to do the research, Gregg cites resources for every fact he shares. It is thus highly unlikely that he made them up. The raging against his ideas comes from the same emotional source as the comment I received from Diane. Many people simply don’t want to accept that things might be getting better. They are.

An interesting question is why is it getting better? Gregg cites a surprising number of trends that appear to have swung from bad to surprisingly good, most starting at the end of the 1980s or in the early 1990s. Among those is the destruction of the Berlin Wall, the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Soviet Union and the end of the arms race, the dismantling of over 90% of the strategic nuclear warheads in the world. Wow! How could such incredibly positive changes go unnoticed? Something appears to have happened at the end of the 80s that kicked off this slide toward a healthier world. What was it?

The harmonic convergence, according to Wikipedia, was “a loosely organized New Age spiritual event which occurred on August 16 and August 17, 1987, when groups of people gathered in various sacred sites and mystical places all over the world to usher in a new era.” The idea was simple. If enough people got together and began to meditate and intend a world of peace and harmony, it would begin to happen. Enough people did… and it did. The big change began back in 1987 and continues today.

If there is a change for the better, then why is there so much “bad stuff” happening? Simple. Almost anything alive is afraid of death. Organisms fight and struggle against it. That’s what is happening. The old world is dying. Its systems of abuse, corruption, manipulation, deceit, and control are fading away. Just before something dies, its struggle to live intensifies for a brief time. A corpse will tense up and kick and fight in its last moments of life. What is happening in the world is this ‘kicking of the corpse’ of the old systems. They are doing all they can to hold onto their last moments of life. May they rest in peace.

The old systems are dying. The Shift has already happened. The outcome is certain. There are however two questions that remain. “How long will it take to bear fruit?” and “How smoothly will it happen?” This is where you come in. This is where you can begin to make a very big difference.

There is another important item that has recently received large amounts of both acclaim and criticism. That is the movie The Secret. It has a simple, easily-understood and life-changing message. Simply put it is this: You can make a difference. By beginning a system of simple exercises that take only a few minutes each day, your life will begin to change dramatically. The book The Jackrabbit Factor by Leslie Householder shares the same ideas as The Secret but simpler and in more detail.

Doing these exercises alone can change your life. If several of us do them together, they will have an even larger effect. If thousands of us, around the world, begin to apply this level of understanding we can change the world. And we get better with practice! If we work together regularly, we will begin to see truly amazing changes in our world. The specific details are below.

There is a huge and beautiful change happening in the world today. This Shift has been going on for a while and is accelerating. Ideas of separation, lack, greed, and taking are being replace by more familiar ones like unity, love, joy, and giving. This Shift is happening and it is inevitable. However, it can be sped up or slowed down. It can happen with more or with less pain and chaos. The deciding factor is you. If you are willing to commit to spending a few moments once or twice a month, we can significantly increase the speed at which this is all happening. Together, we can make a dramatic difference in our world.


Change is happening at a breath-taking pace. A new world is being born. And while the long-term outcome is certain, the path we will take to get there is still "up in the air." Now is the time to get involved. Your actions and intentions now will define the shape of our world for a very long time to come. Now is when you can make the biggest difference. We're here to show you how.

Now is the time to get involved, to make a difference.

It can be tough to feel excited. There is so much "bad news" out there. There is so much that seems to be going wrong. The whole world seems to be falling apart. It's not. There is truly nothing to fear. Things are coming together so beautifully and powerfully, and at such a breath-taking pace, that if you could only step back and see it you would be amazed.

That is our first purpose here at Act Always In Love: to remind you how to step back and see and feel clearly. Our next purpose is to show you how you can make the biggest difference.

Waking up

When I was a child in the 1970s, I read a book that said the world was going to end in 1984. At the time, I believed it. I admit to feeling a bit surprised when it didn't end. You probably noticed. In the years since then I have heard the same prediction made countless times. "The end of the world is just around the corner."

It isn't.

I spent much of the last 20 years traveling around the world, studying with monks, shamans, teachers, healers, mystics and others. I acquired a Master's degree in Psychology and a Doctorate degree in religious studies. What I found in all that study is amazing. Since somewhere around the year 1 people have been shouting, "The world is ending at any moment!" Every single time, some folks believe them. And every single time it doesn't end. It doesn't matter that the has world failed to end hundreds of thousands of times. Still so many of us live in perpetual fear of that same ancient idea.

If you have the Gift of discernment, or prophecy, or any of several others, you will already know this. If you have not yet developed your gifts, now is the time to get started! This is the time and place. In the meantime remember:

It's not the end of the world.

"But look at all the bad stuff that's happening!" The news is full of chaos, war, disease, pain. Of course it is. It's supposed to be.

The world where a handful of powerful people controlled everything is ending. The time when secrets were everywhere is passing. A new world of truth, honor, honesty, love, joy, and true human potential has been born and is rapidly taking over. The systems of manipulation and lies, and the people who run them are scared. They are doing everything they possibly can to try to maintain a rapidly failing grip on this beautiful world.

While the people of the world are afraid while you are afraid they still have the illusion of control. Your fear makes you weak. It keeps you from acting. It intimidates you into silence and immobility. it takes away your power to make a difference. Moving beyond that fear into the higher and healthier emotions will begin to set you free. Joy will return you to you. Trust in yourself lets you relax and begin to breathe again. Love allows you to act, to reach out in the world and get involved. Inner peace arises and you begin to wake up! It's time for that.

It's time for you to wake up.

Paying attention

If you are paying attention, you probably feel a lot of physical and emotional chaos. That craziness and pain can make it tough to stay focused, to pay attention. You may feel there is something huge you need to do, or that you don't belong and just want to go Home (wherever that is). If you are normal, you probably have no real idea what you want to be "when you grow up" even if you are already in your 70s or 80s. There is a lot of personal upheaval going on. This world too has a lot of things to distract you: Television, work, business, stress, family, love-lives, prescription drugs, the net, games, and all the busy-ness of life. Between your personal chaos and the world chaos, life can be just overwhelming.

Even if you want to pay attention it can be so difficult. And you may have no idea what to pay attention to, or even how to do it That's ok. You can find those answers here.

In my travels and my studies I've come across a lot of simple exercises easy to learn and easy to do that will make all the difference for you. I've been using them for years. I've taught them to so many people one-on-one and in small groups. Now I'd like to share them with a larger audience.

Lots of different folks will be happy to tell you "what's going on" and exactly "what you need to do about it." They say, "Believe this.", "Go there.", "Pay this much money." or "Give up that. We don't work that way. The very first exercise will show you how to pay attention to your own inner awareness, how to develop it, and how to learn to trust it. The other exercises go from there. All of it is offered, as true guidance should be, at no cost. The more you learn to listen to you, the more you can love and trust and heal the more the world will heal. Getting to live in that world, to be part of that Shift, is what we get out of thisand it's enough.

It's not hard work! Strange as it might sound. Remember this: you are already exactly where you need to be. There is nothing that you have to do. Slow down for a moment. Breathe! Take a look at something beautiful around you (There is always something) and really appreciate it. Think, right now, of some time in your life when you had fun Remember that feeling now. Relax. Breathe Feel appreciation and joy fun. Just do that for a moment. Was that difficult? Maybe a little but only because you haven't done it in a while. It gets easier and easier to smile, to remember joy, to breathe That's it. You've already started. You're on the path. Remember to do this anytime you feel tense or afraid. You're already on the way.

All the ideas on this site are that simple. Why?

If it's not simple, you haven't understood it.

All true things are simple. Anything you study, anything you know, only seems complicated until you "get it." Once you do, you realize, it's not that hard. The same is true of Life. Once you really understand it, it's simple. Even the complicated inner growth exercises are simple once you understand them. And I seem to have a gift for that: for taking complicated ideas and expressing them in simple words, for taking complicated processes and spelling them out in simple steps.

Everything you need to make your next steps is here on the site. You don't need me or the AAIL staff to help you it's all here. If you want more however, there are some other choices on the site.

There is the Re-creating Our World exercise.

There is a mailing list where we send out our latest thoughts.

Here are some exercises you can do to advance your own walk.

Discussion groups, group projects, and more are available here.

You can join AAIL and take a more active part in helping us help others. There are several roles we would like to have filled and we are growing all the time.

And if you don't have time to join but would like to donate to our group, contributions are always welcome.

We offer Classes here in Mesa, on-line or we can come to you.

There is a lot of fun stuff available here.

You can send a message to us. Whenever possible, we'll reply personally and quickly.

I do personal intuitive counseling if you would like to talk to me.

There are lots of choices for you. In the meantime. Remember to pay attention and to:

Have fun!

For the next several thousand years, the people of this world will look back at this time in history in awe. They will, almost without exception, wish they'd had the chance to be alive during these crucial moments. You are! Remember to pay attention to it. Keep breathing, remember that simple appreciation exercise. Try the more advanced ones if you like. Together, we will bring this world back to its own highest destiny.

Peace :)
Dr. Nicholas Knoth


Question: What is the shift?
Answer: Somewhere in the late 1980s we started noticing some things changing in the world. It quickly became apparent that the changes were far bigger than we had initially understood. When we studied the changing energies, we realized that the world was going thru a major Shift, from one way of being into something completely new. That is, an entirely new world was being born, and we were in the middle of it. We started, early on, calling it "The Shift" because that name *felt* right. Around that same time a large number of others around the world began to notice and talk about the same changes. Almost everyone referred to them as "The Shift," "The Great Shift," or "The Shift of the Ages." For more information and some links to other sites, take a look here."

Question: What is AAIL?
Answer: The Act Always In Love team is a non-profit group of like-minded people who want to see The Shift happen as quickly and as smoothly as possible. They are working together to provide training, exercises, projects and information to the world.

Question: What is AAIL's mission?
Answer: Our mission at Act Always In Love is nothing less than to re-create our world. It is a big goal, but not an impossible one. And you can help! For more information, take a look here.

Question: How can you help?
Answer: The simplest way to help is to take part in the Re-creating Our World exercise. There are also many other ways to help listed on the "Get Involved" page.
