Paul Lowe has spent his life investigating the maximum potential for human beings and has found it to be vast, limitless and available to everybody. For forty years he travelled around the world, encouraging people to move beyond what is normally thought of as possible or impossible. He has a remarkable facilty to show people what they are not seeing about themselves, and shares his insights with caring, and perhaps most importantly, humour.
Since retiring from public life in 2007, Paul has continued to send regular emails to a group of of people that were involved in his work and a few others, responding to our state of consciousness, situations in the world and the evolution of our human destiny.
This blog is NewRealities attempt to bring Paul's observations to a greater audience. Feel free to post any comments about what you read here. While Paul may not respond directly, we want to make this an open dialogue among our readers.

Thank you. In the email he calls the culprits "F***ing criminals.”
Please consider the possibility - we are all f***ing criminals -
all of us - just a matter of degree.
“… first remove the mote from thin own eye”
"If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone …”
"Judge ye not lest ye be judged.”
As I keep saying, easy to talk about others and their more obvious
actions, yet if we take an honest look at our own lives we may see
that the same is happening with us - just in a lesser way.
Sometime, when you see a convicted felon, tune in to them.
You maybe surprised to find - there is a bit of you in there as well.
So check it out?
Are you absolutely and utterly honest - in every possible way?
Never cheated - in the slightest?
Is your thought for the other always over and above your own?
A much bigger perspective: we don't know nuffin about anyfin.
Trouble is, we think we know almost everything about almost everything.
"There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio,
Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”
Possibly, much, much, much, much more.
In fact, what we call reality may, as has been hinted,
nothing more than an illusion.
Stand back a bit, and check it out -
is there more to the situation than you are first seeing?
“The Hidden Harmony”
Until you have done the very basics
of disconnecting from the so-called ‘facts' your brain
has been programmed with, we cannot do more than hint
at other possibilities. The other possibilities are so vast,
that if you let it in without first disconnecting from the nonsense
with which your brain has been programmed, it would explode.
Yet another reason - for not taking anything seriously?
If we support criminals - are we criminals too?
So easy to take the easy way isn’t it - not reading the small print.
Putting our money in, or borrowing from dishonest banks?
Buy products from companies who actively promote unhealthy food -
especially to children.
Use products from companies who sell items to undeveloped countries
that are banned here?
Be part of a religion that is not responsible about population?
Be unconscious about the things we buy - and the way we dispose of them?
Eat food products that are produced in a cruel way?
And so on, and on, and on.
Good job we are not taking things seriously eh.
they are in financial difficulties, and/or they feel depressed.
Although I certainly do not know this for certain,
I acknowledge a part in me that feels/senses that in each moment
we are all experiencing exactly what we need - in order
to get closer to our realising that we are actually beyond all that.
And that does not counteract how I actually feel -
which is a deep caring for anyone who is not well and happy.
So whether it is due to your own behaviour, or not,
if you are not well and happy I am sending you lots of love and caring …
We don’t seem to be getting it do we.
We keep looking for ‘reasons' for the 'unexplainable' shootings,
and isn’t it obvious - at least some of the reasons are that the majority
video games, films, and almost any type of news, are violent. Is it a plot?
Check it out.
Turn on the news; look at the plots of most movies; video games, politics,
big business, and even what is happening WITHIN the major religions -
let alone against each other. Conflict.
And most of the major film stars, who many people adore,
staring in these movies!
Look behind the scenes of most fashion and beauty shows
at what really goes on.
And how many television shows are based on competition.
And take a deeper look at your own life - your family, relationships -
and thoughts. Conflict? Complaint? Judgement? Anger?
Not only are we a violent species (check out our history)
but the present daily stresses are releasing what until now some of us
we have managed to at least partly hold back.
The information I have been receiving over the years indicates
that this is just the start. Those seemingly random negative actions
are going to increase - the inner is going to manifest outwardly.
So what to do?
Be self responsible - take care of your own little part of the planet -
We have all sorts of ‘experts' making great discoveries,
telling us how things are already, and going to get better, and better,
and religious and other types of teachers telling us how to be,
yet although these new discoveries are making our life more convenient,
the majority of people seem to be less happy, and in different ways, more
Most experts and teachers themselves are not living in what a few people
have demonstrated - that a human can live lovingly, and in delight.
Suggested answer? Simple.
Read, listen, watch the mainstream and alternate news,
and let in what is actually happening on the planet you are living on.
It ain’t getting better. Even more people are suffering now than ever.
Consider, the possibility - anything you are not contributing towards
improving, and are complicit about - you are responsible for, and thus supporting.
Then, check in to how you are actually feeling about this.
Not thinking and theorising - feeling. Don’t do anything, just feel.
Next step - look out. Acknowledge how you are feeling, put it aside,
and look to other people. Go beyond your little self and see what you can contribute. Care.
You may find that little redirection of your energy painful. Very.
When you tune in to the pain that most people are in, most of the time -
(whether they realise it or not) it is shocking. Even shattering.
Then, not taking anything seriously, do anything you can.
Smiling is a good start.
after spending 657 days locked up:
I know it is obvious to some of you, but for others, not so clear?
So take a look? Deeper than what you have been programmed with.
What exactly, precisely, is the big deal about not wearing clothes?
Do you get it? I don’t. We are all naked.
Apart from keeping warm, we put garments over us to cover up.
And what exactly are we covering up? Ourselves - as we are.
Same with makeup cosmetics. Take a look at the fashion show videos
(while the majority of the people in the world are hungry.)
Doesn’t work - because we cannot cover up who we are - to ourselves.
We need to expose ourselves to ourselves, then instead of attempting
to cover up, take care of what needs to be taken care of.
How? Simple - start being honest - first to yourself, then to others.
For most people, most of the time, change is waiting for them to happen.
Mark Twain (1835-1910)
Twain was satirical of piety and organized religion in his writing, but he
saved his sharpest criticism of religion for his autobiography, which by
his own instructions was not published until 2010, a hundred years after
"There is one notable thing about our Christianity: bad, bloody,
merciless, money-grabbing, and predatory," he wrote. "The fleets of the
world could swim in spacious comfort in the innocent blood it has spilled.”
"I'm an atheist, and that's it," she said in an interview.
"I believe there's nothing we can know except that we should be kind to
each other and do what we can for other people.”
Scientist Carl Sagan about religion:
"Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence,"
it is gone from the mind. ( I like that.)
So Sabine and Kira take care of the recordings.
And they both, lovingly, ‘stay on my case.'
As I have mentioned before, it is like that about me
seeing who is Paul – I don’t really have a direct experience
of him anymore, so I am always interested when a psychic,
or a person who is able to get out of their own way shares about him.
Kira wrote this about one of the recordings Sabine recently sent to her.
Thank you Kira.

Hi Paul (hi Sabine!)
ok, one of the first words really struck me … introspection … which made me introspect my experience of Paul Lowe … And, some other thoughts/impressions that arose from this talk for me – I did not see the documentary Paul talks of so cannot make any direct reference to that, however, my impression of Paul is he is a very exceptional person. He has truly 'lived' gone for life, lived many lives within this 'one' life. Since 20 yrs (this month is the 20th anniversary of my meeting Paul) I have lived quite close enough to his life to know enough that he really 'walks his talk'. Sometimes he might seem really 'certain' and advocate something and someone and in that moment be 'right on' and as soon as it changes, so does his perception/comments. I have experienced him 'totally' into whatever is arising, until it is no longer relevant/appropriate. This has been deeply impactful to me personally as I have had a living example of someone who simply 'goes for life' who says everything he needs/wants to say, who goes wherever he wishes to go (I recall being a part of a few of those experiences!), who shares his attractions and sexuality fully, who says his truth in the simplest and honest of moments (way too many to write about), yet they all flash before my eyes as examples over and over – especially if I try to go around my own truth! then I recall one of these moments …
so yes, that leaves him in a really remarkable place of being able to connect, relate, tune in with 'people' - not their 'pattern', their behavior , not their drama or theme – but who they really are, and to bring that to the point of simple clarity of where they are so that they can relate, soften 'hear' him. I cannot in any way count the number of times of being a witness of the depths of compassion I have seen Paul in with this 'meeting' of another. Be it in a group dedicated to communication or on the street with strangers or a practical encounter like at the bank – without exception, he 'meets' the person. Over the years I have known Paul I have seen this in him refine and soften and refine more … in ways I don't truly have words for – I guess the nearest analogy would be a musician being in tune with his/her instrument in a way that it comes to the point that it is simply always sweetly singing …
when I consider an example of an 'awake' person this is my reference, this level of 'being with' connection, which is deeply intensely personal and yet at the same time not personal … compassionate to a level that includes practically taking care of a person physically/financially and on another level sharing such an uncompromising level of truth that may make a close relative or friend disown him. Without exception – he will 'be with what is'.
I have in the past 20 yrs met many many different people, teachers, individuals – and Paul stands out as a 'light'.
Even when I felt very confronted with what Paul has said to me personally about my own behavior, something else within me has realized and recognized that what he has said has a 'ring of truth'. Which has allowed me to 'be with' what he has shared, to let it in and therefore help my own evolution. (for which I am deeply appreciative of and grateful for)
so then I come back to something I have shared with Paul many times in the past few years – which goes something like – your work is only beginning ..
then I can (perhaps?!) gently remind Paul that we don't know what the future will be, and, that in the past years since you have stopped traveling and 'doing groups' that something else has been emerging. Aside from this IML list which has more that 2500 subscribers, you also reach more on Alan's list, plus those who we all forward or send the emails/audios onto … and… many of us who have been supported and evolved through your guidance are out in the world sharing onwards in groups or sessions – in our own way, the essence of what you have been saying – an we are all ever growing with this too.
I cannot count the number of times I read or hear 'I thought Paul was speaking directly to me' with that talk/email …
some more on the topic of 'loosing it' - a theme I think is close to the heart of many of us as one 'precept' I think many of us (myself included) have fallen into the trap of that there is somewhere / someplace to get to. When in essence as you keep pointing to is that is 'is here' all the time, and we go away from it in various way.
Personally my journey has been so much about discovering my own humanity and every time 'I loose it' I 'find' more of my own humanity and therefore also find so much more connection with both myself and others. And without exception it has kept evolving in this way. More and more depths which simply feel so rich, yummy and rewarding – including all the really 'awful' stages (after I have stopped resisting them!) So I am much more relaxed with 'loosing it' as in fact it keeps pointing me to where I 'am' which is back 'here' again …
so yes please – tell me every single time I have 'lost it, ' YAY!!! As my predominate experience is to 'drop into' vulnerability and therefore most often another level of compassion, clarity and sensitivity … and my life keeps opening up and feeling more alive richer, fulfilled and happier …
I don’t know if this makes entire sense, yet it has flowed out of me on this Sunday evening as listened to your talks (feeling very privileged and grateful to be the 'editor', which means I get first listen … !)
with love … kira
