OIRO and DR. GENE #1

Ezee: You told me that there will be banking problems on Friday 14th and none of this happened. As I told you then you are operating in a delusional world and you need to see a therapist. Now you also realize that is the case as nothing happened with all your wisdom.

Oiro: I hear you and being human we all make mistakes, when I make a mistake I need to see a therapist, when you make a mistake some spin is presented from one of your PR firms of what has happened to validate your decisions and this is presented as some in depth analysis in the media.

Ezee: My choices and decisions are based on logical analyses I do not make statements about mythical friends and what I had in a dream, this is all delusional.

There is an excellent child and adolescent therapist Dr Gene, she will be able to help you and support you with these issues that are troubling you.

Oiro: I am not being troubled I am just looking at life from a different perspective, one in fact that was very much part of human society in ancient times that gave us so much wisdom and understanding of our human and community needs.

Ezee: Oiro, you need to be here in this world as it is now and I will make an appointment for you to see Dr Gene.

Oiro: If you insist, plus I am curious about her and what she is offering children and adolescents to have them be more here in this world.

Ezee; Thanks for listening to me. I will phone her now and see if she can fit you into her busy schedule. Hello Dr Gene it is Ezee here, I would like to make an appointment for my son Oiro.

He is having some challenges feeling at home in the modern world and this at times leaves him quite delusional with his ideas and his views about life and events around him. When is the earliest appointment that you can offer him?

Dr Gene: Sorry to hear this Ezee, these days many children and teenagers have these issues. Not to worry I will help him. Let me check my diary, ah tomorrow I have a cancellation at 4 p.m. otherwise the earliest date would be in 6 weeks time.

Ezee: I will make sure he is there tomorrow at 4 p.m.

Dr Gene: Glad that you have my private number otherwise it would have been 6 weeks before I saw him. How are you and the banking world?

Ezee: All is good and very busy. Thanks for your help in accommodating my son so quickly, greatly appreciated Dr Gene.

Dr Gene: You are welcome

Ezee: This is very important to me Oiro and I will take you there so you arrive on time. I will let you make your way back home after the session.

Oiro: I am curious who this Dr Gene is, I think we will have some very interesting conversations.

Dr Gene: Hello Oiro, it is great to finally meet you. Thanks for filling out the form. Tell me about your world Oiro.

Oiro; Is it possible that you can tell me about your world and how you help children and teenagers;

Dr Gene; Thanks for asking, it varies a lot Oiro; some children come with emotional and behavioural disorders, a lot of them in the last 5 years have problems sleeping especially teenagers.

I am also seeing a lot with anxiety issues worried about what their friends think of them, whether they will be accepted. Then also eating problems some are very overweight and some have eating disorders. It is vast, with many complex problems. Do you have any of those problems that I spoke about Oiro.

Oiro; No Dr Gene, it sounds as if these children and teenagers have no connection with life and they are very caught up with the digital world and seeing themselves through consumer ideas of how they need to look and what they need to have and what is important for them to have to look special.

Dr Gene: Oiro, how did you come to this view about these things that is affecting children?

Oiro: Dr Gene, I do not know, it is just I observe that is what is happening when I see teenagers my age and what turns them on.

Dr Gene: So don’t you have some teenage friends Oiro?

Oiro: Not really Dr Gene, yes I know some at school but to be honest I find them boring so my interaction with them is superficial.

Dr Gene: So who are your friends Oiro, you must have some friends

Oiro: do you really want to know? As when I told my parents who they were they did not want to know as they said I was being delusional.

Dr Gene: Oiro, it is most important for me to know about these friends as you are the first teenager that I have met in my 25 years of working in this field who has a view of his age group with such insight and understanding. It is important I know who your special friends are.

Oiro: Thanks for wanting to hear me Dr Gene I do appreciate this. Please no need to flatter me as being the first teenager, I have no sense of being special as I am only present with what I see and feel around me.

Dr Gene: I really do want to know and you have not told me as yet who your special friends are, who are they?

Oiro: I will, they are Heph, Pontus and Aditi. I guess those names are all mysterious to you.

Dr Gene; No! These are Mythical personalities, but they can’t be friends Oiro. How can you say they are friends?

Oiro: Dr Gene,I guess it was ok for Harry Potter stories to fill the world of children and adults as if it was a fantasy world.

What if I have something different from being someone who was born into the world as an energy link for people in Europe to live their lives peacefully as that was the original intention for me being here, because of this, such friends visit me?

Dr Gene: Oiro, you have left me speechless. What you are talking about gives me no references as to how to place you and your personality. Of course I am very curious about what you are telling me and I do want to continue these conversations with you, as they are very interesting.  I can surely help you with your relationship with your parents and also for you to feel more comfortable in the modern world. From what you are sharing I realize that you will not feel that comfortable with modern life.

Oiro:  Thank you Dr Gene as you immediately knew of my friends as mythical personalities and did not shut me up.

Plus thanks for reassuring me that you will help me with my parental issues and feeling at ease in the modern world.

Can I make a very practical suggestion?

Dr Gene:  I like your choice of words Oiro, it seems you do have a good grasp of reality, do you?

Oiro: I like your way of teasing me Dr Gene.

Dr Gene: Is that allowed?

Oiro: Of course Dr Gene, I do not know if you will think me respectful if I tease you.

Dr Gene: Oiro you are very respectful you always answer me as Dr Gene. Many teenagers and children do not ever say that to me. So a tease from you would be fun.

Oiro: Dr Gene it is fun meeting you and besides my 3 friends I feel as if I have a good friend in you, hopefully our age differences does not prevent us from being friends.

Dr Gene: You are most welcome to view me as a friend. I am glad that you feel such trust in me. Tell me about your practical suggestion

Oiro: Well there is something which I have observed that works extremely well in understanding people and I think you will find it interesting and helpful working with children and teenagers.

Dr Gene: What is that Oiro?

Oiro: I learnt about it from reading this book called the The Time of Your Life…is it Now?

Dr Gene: That sounds interesting, how come it is practical as Time is just something we have to manage there is nothing else practical about Time.

Oiro: Dr Gene, there is much more and you will be pleasantly surprised how practical it is.

Dr Gene: Tell me more Oiro

Oiro: I guess this may be a rude question to you.

Dr Gene: Oiro at no stage in our chatting have you been rude to me. Sometimes I have children who swear when they are talking to me; sometimes that is there problem. You express no such behaviour in your communication with me. Do ask me

Oiro: When is your birthday?

Dr Gene: That is an awkward question to ask a woman though it is not rude. Why do you want to know?

Oiro: Well it is part of my practical suggestion

Dr Gene: I am curious as to how this is going to be practical. It is August 24 1964

Oiro: Well from this book you will be a 9 Fire Personality as an adult and an 8 Earth personality as a child. This explains why you are so good at what you do Dr Gene. It is because you have something called a 4 Wood Contextual Winning Field. This makes you a very skilled communicator.

Dr Gene: How is this a practical suggestion? By the way thanks for the compliment.

Oiro: I take it that you have some very difficult children and teenagers to sort out.

Dr Gene: Loads, how will this Time stuff help?

Oiro: Ok give me a birthdate of one of your challenging cases.

Dr Gene: Here is one, a teenage girl, she is born October 18th 2002.

Oiro: She is a 9 Fire child personality and will express the 7 Metal personality when she becomes 18. Would she be one who is seeking endless attention and just wants to be seen?

Dr Gene: That is very accurate for when she is here with me but her parents says that at home she is non communicative and very sad and depressed. So it is very confusing this split personality she expresses.

Oiro: No it is not confusing at all. What I am hearing with her story is that she has suffered abuse as a child and she switched to her adult expression, which is the 7 metal to manage the abuse as she could no longer feel safe as a child. Unconsciously she needed to be responsible for her life. Because of your skill you give her permission to be a child so she expresses the 9 Fire in your sessions, very much like an actress on centre stage wanting to be complimented and seeking attention.

Dr Gene: Oiro, that is spot on, the child abuse I did not consider, but it makes sense what you say. So how can you pinpoint that so accurately this personality switch and how it manifests? It will take me many sessions to pinpoint something like that.

Oiro: It is there in that book The Time of Your Life is it Now? This all comes out from Time. This month August 2015 is an important month for her as it is her 8 Context Winning Field month. This is an ideal month for you to suggest that she gets into some sport or activity that demands a big effort as she has the capacity to overcome many major challenges and can be very productive. She has a similar pattern as the athlete Wilma Rudolph and the painter Van Gogh.

There is also the painter Georgia O’Keefe who has the same pattern as her. A simpler suggestion would be to ask her to do a painting for you for when next she comes to see you. You may find that she brings you a few and not just one.

Dr Gene: This sounds very practical, hopefully it works then it would not be just practical, it would be magical. And this Contextual Winning Field information is it in that book, The Time of Your Life is it Now?

Oiro: Yes it is Dr Gene. Here some other tips for the 8 Contextual Winning Field for this month for those personalities who have this as their pattern.1. Encourage them to transform themselves. 2. Encourage them to seek authenticity with what they do. 3.Encourage them to be tenacious. 4. Encourage them to take a stand for what they believe in 5. Encourage them to go after creating things that stretch their creative processes.

This all comes from the book Dr Gene.

Dr Gene: Thank you Oiro and I look forward to having future chats with you. From this meeting Oiro, I am not of the view that you are delusional only that you are different and do not fit the life of a 16 year old. My suggestion is that in future you do not talk to your parents about your special friends. This is too much a stretch for them. I will suggest to them that you come for more sessions as I can give you feedback about this book which sounds very interesting and which it seems makes your life practical to deal with the different observations you make of life. Also Oiro, I can help you with feeling comfortable with the modern world and its speedy nature.

Oiro: Dr Gene, I would love to continue our chats as you do listen and have a curiosity and want to explore what I find interesting and practical.

Dr Gene: Can we say in 2 weeks time?

Oiro: I look forward to that Dr Gene and when next we meet I think I will be able to tell you something to help that 8 Contextual Winning Field girl with her abuse trauma.

Dr Gene: I am curious as to what that will be

Oiro: We go smooth and cool Dr Gene and one step at a time.


Well things are not very happy right now with the Oiro family. There is the teenage tension of Oiro, at sixteen he wants to express himself much more and wants to circulate more. He views this is as an essential aspect of who he is and what he is about.

Whereas, his parents are very conscious of looking good or at least wanting to be seen as looking good. They want to be seen as being very responsible and wanting him to mature very much like how they are: all cautious and conservative.

Of course their son, Oiro sees through this spin very easily and finds them at times very hypocritical with their statements and persona. Obviously, one needs to remember that their age difference is only 6 months so inherently there is a most distorted and dysfunctional parent child relationship happening, if you can call it that.

His parents Ezee are caught with all the projections and percentages they can make with him, and wanting to have all these stable exchange rates with him. They are really control freaks of the most intense order and inherently dysfunctional in their own unique way.

His parents like to package themselves as being pro-active on environment issues, because of this they always like to appear dressed in green. Plus the influence of the greenback, the US dollar, they feel they must show a sense of being close to the green back so again another reason why they love wearing green. In a way we can immediately see how superficial their thinking is.

On the other hand, Oiro just loves to wear white outfits and he is always seen in this as he has a great need to be transparent and ethical in all his dealings, he feels this from the core of his being.

Because of the big gap between the views of Oiro and his parents he has had to cultivate some very unusual friends and companions as he views his parents friends and associates as people who have little or no imagination. They only want to talk about money and how to control it and they keep having idiotic conversations about the environment so people and the media will think that they are interested in the environment when in fact Oiro knows this is not so also like his parents they are always dressed in green but their hearts are not connected with this, it is all about packaging and marketing.

Oiro has no time for them.

His friends and companions come from a time long forgotten and they come as special visitors but they all bring a warmth and joy to his heart, especially Heph he feels very close to him as Heph experiences feelings of deep rejection and alienation because of his lameness and the bent over posture he has. Heph is the nickname that Oiro has for him.

Hephaestus is his real name and he is a hard working person bent over by his years of manufacturing things in fire and suffers from great toxicity in his system.

As Oiro says

“I like to be around real people and experiences. Things that really do exist in SPACE – this is what turns me on.

Hephaestus is one of my friends and he gets so tired from all his manufacturing and night shifts along with the toxicity that his lifestyle brings that he needs to erupt as a volcano and allow the ash to purify him.

My parents can’t see this relation, but to me it is obvious.”

In the odd moments when his parents enquire about who is visiting him and who was this friend that just came by, he has these awkward conversations with his parents:

“That is nonsense Oiro, you do not know what you are saying.”

Oh yes, I do know what I am talking about. My friend Heph he suffers from Arsenic poisoning that is why he is all bent over and because of this many people are depressed and bent over, it is all the same. So when he erupts the ash purifies the water that he drinks of arsenic and he feels better.

Of course you and your Banking CEO’s hate him and just want to grind him in the dust, but that and a cow jumping over the moon you won’t see.

Pontus is here with me also, he is a friend that I meet to feel at ease and he brings me much comfort as he is a water god who tells me stories and offers me guidance. He is trustworthy and gentle and does not forget the laws of righteousness so unlike you.

Then I like to see Aditi from space, she tells me things about you.

Ezee: “what does she tell you?”

Oiro: you would not want to hear so don’t ask me.

I need to have a woman around me, there ain’t any here, you keep speaking about equality and time for women to have their place but that is jus talk, no action and Aditi is who brings me that motherly quality that I so miss around here.

Anyway you are not interested in that, you are focused on CDS.

Ezee: WHAT!!! how do you know about that?

Oiro: You think I am stupid, because I am only 16, like I don’t know anything, I know your secrets

Ezee: But where did you hear about this?

Oiro: Have you ever heard about dreams?

Ezee: Don’t be ridiculous.

Oiro: You did ask, and things come to me in my dreams and they tell me what you are doing at your desk and they told me that Credit Default Swaps is what goes on and then lots of money is pumped into the system to “improve the viability of production”. What fancy words you and your friends come up with to mystify people.

Then you want me to believe that and to trust you as a parent. What example are you giving me to be a better person in the world?

Ezee: I am making sure you have the best education, that you go to Harvard, and Oxford and learn many languages and are fantastic with the digital world.

Oiro: And that will make me happy, that will make me just like you and no way I want to be like you.

Ezee: Oiro your conversations and ideas are so delusional and ridiculous, it seems you need some psychological counselling.

Oiro: Don’t go there, don’t even think that I have a problem. You are the one with the problem, coming from your lifestyle and approach to me. I will now tell you a few things seeing you are confronting me as being delusional and in need of Psychological Counselling. So listen carefully to what I am about to tell you as you are not going to hear it from your so-called wise advisers.

Ezee: I now know that you need to see someone.

Oiro: Don’t be so impatient, you have not heard what I have to tell you. Obviously from your delusional world, you are all worried about me and strange it is really me who is worried about you.

Ezee: How could you be, all is fine with how things are here.

Oiro: So how come you made such a big mistake with austerity when your scientific research was based on a false manipulated study.

Ezee: Oiro you know nothing about economics and banking and how it works plus I have a whole committee and research unit who support me in making scientific projections about the economy and the best way of managing money.

Oiro: You want me to believe that. Ok, so how come the work of Carmen Reinhart and Kenneth Rogoff, called Growth in a Time of Debt is all based on totally false assumptions. Yet you and your banking friends, including governments have jumped on this bandwagon to squeeze people with austerity yet have done nothing to address all the speculation that you and your banking friends have done that created the global banking crisis through all these sub prime funds that went bust. Everyday people were not involved with any of those tricks: it is you and your elite crowd who created this.

Ezee: Oiro, ok I hear you, how do you know about all of this. We need to keep this in the family and it is late now and it is best we go to bed now.

Oiro: Thanks for hearing me: you are all fixated on Greece and you need to know that Greece is not the problem. It is a minor issue and there are ways to handle this that needs the same flexibility that was given to the banks when trillions were wiped out in 2008, remember Lehman Brothers went bankrupt and banks in Europe can also face these challenges as Lehman Bros did. You have a big problem to handle on August 14th next month, yes August 14th 2015 and it is not Greece, it is the bank.

Ezee: Oiro, what are you talking about.

Oiro: I am telling you as I do not want to see you go under or just spin out with bigger stresses throughout the banks in Europe. It may seem to be my problem i.e. the

Oiro but it is you who is in charge at the Bank who will have to deal with this. Greece is not your problem it is minor compare to the trillions that will be at stake in August.

Ezee: who told you this, where did you get this information from?

Oiro: It is from my friends Heph, Pontus and Aditi. They whispered that to me, hopefully they do not get upset with me for telling you this as it was just a private conversation that we had.

But when you wanted to take me for counselling, I realized I have to be in your face and tell you some real things that I know about hence reminding you about Reinhart and Rogoff and I had to drop this bombshell as you are managing me and you are most certainly not looking after me.

I have some other important dates for you. You need to know that you can count on me and what I am telling you is for real. Rather than all the delusional stuff you are getting from your computers and so called research units.

Ezee: what are these other dates.

Oiro: Let’s do one thing at a time. After you go through August 14th your listening to me will be much more receptive. So let’s groove, smooth and cool, one step at a time.


euroSometimes, especially in this modern world, with all the digital devices where everything is just a click away, it’s good to allow our imagination to take flight and see where it lands.

This happened to me recently, and my imagination started to look at the European Common Market currency the Euro as if it was a human personality. This personality would have certain characteristics based on when it came into existence, when it was “born”. I framed these imaginary characteristics from my personal view of Time, based on the innovations I have brought to the 9 Star Ki System of Astrology in my two books, “Grasshopping Through Time” and “The Time of Your Life”.

So Who is The EURO?

Well, the Euro was born on January 1st 1999. The Time of Your Life characteristics from this birthdate would give the Euro the Adult Star personality of the 2 Earth when it became an adult, i.e.18 years of age. In the 9 Star Ki calendar, 1998 was a 2 Earth year and from the 9 Ki perspective the year begins February 4th and ends February 3rd . Thus January 1st of 1999 would be part of the 1998 year, hence the 2 Earth quality. The 9 Star Ki Child Number for the Euro would be the 1 Water Star, based on the date January 1st 1999.

What are some of the characteristics of such a personality?

Well, we have to make him a boy, as it was an all-male energy and viewpoint that chose his time of entrance into the world. In fact the only woman at that time who could have had a say in his birth, Margaret Thatcher, did not want to have anything to do with him. Hence, I guess we can assume that the timing of his birth is something that the “boys” came up with.

I think having the Euro as a boy is a perfect fit.
He had the freedom to do what he wants, as looking at the first years of the Euro we can say that he rolled around all over Europe expanding his sphere of interest and also seeking for his water energy to flow into all the banks and wallets of Europe people.

Of course, he was still a child, so certain rules and regulations were placed as to when he could be the currency of the different European countries that were joining the European Union club.

So who are his parents or guardian?

Well, they are the European Central Bank, and they are extremely vigilant and protective of him, understandably so.

When were his parents born?

Well, they are just a few months older than him: they were born on June 1st 1998, which means that his parents have a personality of 2 Earth as adults and 8 Earth as a child.

As we all know, Earth tends to absorb Water, so the controlling dimension of the ECB with the Euro will be very intense and protective. They have not yet become adults, hence they are functioning as an 8 Earth child personality.  They are going to be obsessed with numbers and projections and PLANS: what plans you have in place for dealing with my child the Euro. We can see this is how they the ECB interact with European countries when conflicts or difficulties occur with the Euro.

Anyway, before we get carried away with the ECB and its personality, let’s get back to their child, I mean their son, the Euro. Before I do though, it is worthwhile to know that the disturbing emotion at this stage of his parents’ life is that of PARANOIA and deep suspicion. So trust and loving-kindness are not going to be close to their heart, at least so far we have not seen this occurring.

Well, what about their son, what is the disturbing emotion of the Euro?
You need to hold your breath for this one, as it is RAGE.
Rejection is not something he takes kindly to, and one can sense that at times this is boiling up towards his parents also.
We have some strange events that have tended to happen before the Euro’s value falls or some major financial conflict happens around it.

“How can you say that?”
Well, it seems to be the case: when we observe the movie of the “Euro boy child” and what surrounds his personality and the tremors he at times creates before (and during, but mostly  before) some drama arises in his life.
In September 2003 when he was only 4 years and 9 months and Sweden had a referendum about whether they would want to have him as their currency, 3 days before the referendum on September 11th the Foreign Minister of Sweden was assassinated. Interestingly she wanted to have him as their currency and the Swedes said “No” to him in their referendum. At this time this was the lowest value that they Euro was since its birth. It was at US$1.12
Another interesting time where dramas were going on with him, the Euro, was in April 2010: on April 14th to 20th the Icelandic volcano exploded and sent it ashes into the air: this lingering ash and belching expression of the volcano affected some 10 million airline passengers world wide.  Also in this month there was an explosive clash between the leaders of France and Germany about the Euro. Then 3 days later April 23rd the Greek government came knocking on his parents’ door for a €45 billion loan. This was the crest of the wave of the Greek debt crisis that is still with us. I guess the tremors are volcanic in the halls of the ECB around Greece and its debt.

This was not everything with him: it seems at times he has other ideas than his parents and want to be very ethical, transparent and compassionate. Seemingly with his parents caught in their over protective attitude to him this does not always turn out to be the case.

I am adding this dimension to his character because on July 11th 2011 at the Evangelos Florakis Naval base in Zygi, Cyprus, there was an ammunition explosion that killed 13 people. It also destroyed the largest electricity generating plant on the island and it’s estimated that it created an economic loss of some US$2.8 billion, with the destruction of the power plant estimated at some US$990m.
So what happened after this was that in Cyprus, there was a draining away of money in the Cypriot banks which were dealing with him, the Euro.

Two months later on 12th September 2011 which was a 1 Water month, his “child” star pattern month, all major credit rating agencies downgraded Cyprus credit rating. So Cyprus was fried by their debt.

In a way I guess we can say he being a water child wants to help them to put out “the explosive fire” that is happening there. He wants to connect with his elemental water that surrounds the Greek islands and Cyprus, but his parents have no such inclination.

What about now, January 2015?

Well, the Euro is caught in a dilemma, as his 6 Contextual Winning Field is activated and with all the controls of his parents they are not allowing him to show the qualities of his 6 CWF. That is there, as this month is a 6 Metal star month and his two star qualities are facing each other. His child 1 Water star is facing his adult 2 Earth star and some part of him is seeking Peace of Mind and to have Compassionate Values to give him this feeling. One can imagine that he feels for the people of Greece and wants to bring that comfort that water brings to us. Interestingly from his early years, we see this pull he has to countries that have a lot of water surrounding them; Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal and Ireland are all countries, which had to get his help with loans from his parents the ECB.

So what can we expect from this Euro teenager this year?

Well turmoil is there, as he is starting to want to have his own way as he is now 16 years of age and quite rebellious.

We already have the situation of his parents pumping over a trillion Euros into the system this January. I am not so sure he likes this as you could almost hear him shouting “Why are you doing this, why don’t you trust me to work this out with the people?”

He is starting this year with this upset and for sure you can expect him to become more rebellious in the September/October period where he more than likely will embarrass them by having them confused as to how best to manage him.

Do expect some major upheavals from him in the September/October period this year, with him feeling quite awkward with what is happening around him as he seeks to be of help to the people in Greece and Spain and the other water-surrounded countries as his parents seek to put more restraints on him. This can lead to his parents, the ECB, having some tantrums at home as they are finding him just too much to handle at the moment and a crisis of confidence may occur for them, even something close to a nervous breakdown may occur at the ECB.

This can easily manifest in November/December this year. Interesting times are ahead for this family. Stay tuned for more updates about this Euro teenager.



pope francis

He was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio December 17th 1936 making him a 1 Water personality as an Adult and a 7 Metal personality as a child, which gives him the number 4 Wood Contextual Winning Field.

Since he became Pope Francis, there has been a great deal of media curiosity about who he is and how he operates. This has become more fascinating as the months have gone by.

One has to remember that before he began his seminary studies he worked as a chemical technician and also a bouncer in a nightclub. His presence is very much someone who is comfortable in his body and his body language shows that he is someone who stands from his own bones and is not cowed by the presence of people or crowds.

He was ordained as a priest in 1969. This was 4 Wood year,  the same Star number as his Contextual Winning Field. From my research this would indicate that his monastic life would be one framed by creativity.

Obviously, this would tend to create challenges for the inherently conservative structures of the Catholic monastic tradition. It seems that he held these creative impulses in check prior to becoming the Pope. Nevertheless, he kept and honoured his vows as a Jesuit priest, bishop and cardinal, being totally committed to helping the poor in practical ways and making more resources and support available to the poor. When he was the Bishop of Buenos Aires his nickname was “The Slum Bishop”, as he doubled the presence of priest available in slums connected to his administrative region.

Why is the world curious and fascinated with Pope Francis?

Well, those who know their church history will be aware that he is the first-ever Cardinal from South America to become Pope. He is the first-ever from the Jesuit order to become Pope, also the first non-European pope for over 1,200 years. Understandably, with such a background Vatican watchers will be curious as to what he will do.

What is special though, and what will keep him on the front burner of the media agencies of the world, is his Time DNA, the 4 Contextual Winning Field.

Pope Francis is a Communicator of epic proportions.

This is an inherent part of the 4 CWF.

#4 Contextual Winning Field personalities:


Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Henrik Ibsen

Stanley Kubrick

Ernest Hemingway

Eric Clapton

(see page 138 of “The Time of Your Life” by Rex Lassalle)  

Many writers, poets and “communicators” have the 4 Contextual Winning Field as their Time DNA. People like D.H. Lawrence, Derek Walcott, Emily Bronte, Robert Burns, Beatrice Webb, Ravi Shankar, Jacques Brel and Barbara Cartland to name only a few.

It will therefore come as no surprise that Pope Francis has already coined some new phrases or “sound bites” when he makes his pronouncements.

Here are some of his gems: 

“Spiritual Alzheimer’s”

 “The Terrorism of Gossip” 

”Existential Schizophrenia” 

The pathology of power could lead to people believing they are superior to others, and not here for the service of others.”

Then his punch line: “Having a Funeral Face because you want to be taken seriously by treating others with rigidity, hardness and arrogance.” 

He offered a remedy for this condition which showed his street wise credentials when he recommended:

“Let’s not lose that joyous spirit full of humour and even self-irony that makes us likeable, even in difficult situations.”

The media and the press corps can expect more of these original sound bites when Pope Francis describes human behaviour and social situations.

These statements were made at the Roman Curia in Rome on December 22nd 2014 when he was addressing the Cardinals, Bishops and Priests who are part of his Vatican administration.

He gives us a closer look at how he operates in the world when he warned the Curia of: “those who lose their inner serenity, their vivacity and audacity to hide behind their papers, becoming like procedural machines rather than men of God. It is dangerous to lose our human sensitivity, so necessary in order to cry with those who cry and enjoy with those who enjoy.” 

Pope Francis is openly confronting with the conservative Cardinals and Bishops of the church with these statements. He is asking them to become audacious. Boldness as a character for a Cardinal is something never encouraged by a Pope before, as far as I am aware. In the history of the Church there have been Cardinals and Bishops who operated in this way, and oftentimes in recent history some Church leaders in Latin America, with their Liberation Theology, did the same.

Some may view this last statement  as one totally off the wall coming from a Pope, yet when we look deeper at Francis’s Time DNA, we realise that he is simply seeking to express the creative impulses of his 4 Contextual Winning Field, and who he authentically is as a man.

We see this search for deep inner meaning in Ibsen’s play Peer Gynt.

It is present in Stanley Kubrick’s films, and also with Hemingway’s characters, where he repeatedly depicts them as having grace and ease while being in difficult situations. These are all 4 CWF personalities.

Pope Francis was very instrumental in creating a new relationship between the US and Cuba when he facilitated the diplomacy that brought about the lifting of the US embargo.

Many global observers have a sense that it was Pope Francis who initiated this possibility, rather than President Obama, as suggested in the press. The reason for this view is that in 1998 Francis, then a bishop, accompanied Pope John Paul II to Cuba and was then asked by the Vatican to write the book “Dialogues with Pope John Paul II and Fidel Castro.” In this book he wrote, “The motives which led the United States to impose the embargo have been entirely superseded in the present time.”

His biographer Austen Ivereigh affirmed: “Francis is a genius at breaking through and building bridges across boundaries.” We see clear evidence of this with his pivotal role in bringing about this historic event. If we start weaving aspects of his pronouncements and apply it to him as approaches he would have with world leaders, the following statement would stand out: “having vivacity and audacity.”

These are surely two qualities that would have been at play during  Pope Francis’s input to the recent US-Cuba diplomatic breakthrough. One can almost imagine him telling President Obama: “Listen, it’s time you sorted out this Cuban embargo: it’s just no longer relevant”.

Of course, this is all speculation on my part but maybe in 25 to 30 years, when such documents become available, this projection of mine may not be far off the mark.

What does 2015 hold for Pope Francis?

This “what does my future hold?” question is one that I get asked a lot, since the autumn 2014 publication of my book “The Time of Your Life”.

It’s not something that I actually like to project, because of the nature of peoples’ expectations, but with great hesitancy I make the following statements:

Pope Francis will face many awkward periods in 2015, not from his own decisions but from things that happened in the past that he has to tidy up and to bring closure. Some awkward situations will also arise in his relationship with the Chinese government: some of this may occur as early as March 2015 and around his birthday in December 2015.

June 2015 will be a time of surprises for him and the world, as he may make some decisions at this time that rock the conservative factions of the Church with even greater intensity than what has gone before.

These decisions will create an even growing respect for Pope Francis as the moral voice of the world, in the same spirit as Nelson Mandela.

In September 2015 we may see Pope Francis facing some health challenges, and perhaps some challenges from conservative factions in the church seeking to belittle or ridicule some of his pronouncements.
