You are sooo kind to have thought of honoring this special moment. This coming February 13, it will be indeed 5 years since what was to become the Earth Rainbow Network website came online.
I had totally forgotten about this date. Thanks for reminding it to me.
I'll try to take a break on that day to ponder on the significance of this moment of creation, this leap of faith into what has become an all-consuming and mostly delightful service for the Highest Good of All.
Frankly, at this very moment, I'm crying in awe at the magnificence of what is has become -- and I feel most profoundly and tinglingly the cosmic rejoicing and celebration going around and within me...
We are all angels in disguise ;-)

Subject: Re: Request for financial assistance
Hi Jean ~ Because of a number of events occurring here around the time of the arrival of your request for financial assistance (Light Series #14), I was unable to write you. However, I wanted you to know that my initial, gut reaction was, "Hooray!! It's about time!"
Like you, we, here, have given 100% of our time to our God-given "job". For us the direction has been in stepping down energy and consciousness in transformational energy resonance, both personal and planetary, dismantling matrices of separation and reweaving realities for the upliftment and greater good of Us All. For the past 4 years, in the context of two different triads, we have worked 24/7/365. Literally.
Like you, we have been offering material through the internet on behalf of Us All during these past 4 years. Unlike you, up until recently, funds were provided by Divine Source from some non-ordinary resources, so we have not needed to request assistance from others. However, it has been a curiosity to us that not once has anyone come forth and offered an energy exchange or gratitude gift for what they were receiving -- even when, like you, we were given profoundly positive responses. I kept telling myself that we didn't need the money, so I presumed that those who received the messages we sent out were aware of this at some level.
But in my heart of hearts, I feel there's an imbalance of energy exchange, of giving and receiving, going on here. Over the past several years, it has been our great pleasure to listen to our inner guidance and respond with a spontaneous, unsolicited gift of money when we felt deeply grateful to someone who is working planetarily on behalf of Us All. I believe that if each of us followed through in this manner, from our heart's gratitude for what we are receiving, there would never be any lack for any of us!
I find that when I respond and recompense according to my heart's dictates, out of my gratitude of receiving, my own pot of gold gets replenished along with God's. I experience being more available to receiving Supreme abundance in every way that I need it -- whether it be information, awareness, material gifts or inner peace. To feel the continuous joy of responding with gratitude and love, in a manner that nurtures and strengthens each vehicle of support, becomes an incentive with which I love to participate! It has its own built-in, God-given rewards. I experience a circle with no beginning and no end, ever expanding in Divine Grace, with the greatest good for us all reigning supreme.
I believe your request is not only valid, but is vital at this time to aid the shifting of a very old planetary consciousness of lack into our NOW paradigm of plenty. Instead of a traditional job being seen as drudgingly showing up at someone else's facility, to earn enough money to pay the rent and buy food, I wish to support God's work as becoming the divine design for us all. I experience this as a conscious and constant desire to utilize my energies and talents to subsidize the greatest good for all at the highest level of which I am capable. Those activities and actions which spring forth great joy while simultaneously feeling peace in my belly, in every moment, are my guide.
It will be my/Our pleasure to put a check in the mail to you today in great gratitude for all you are providing on behalf of Us All.
With Blessings and Love to you and to Us All, Joie Bourisseau and the Rainbow Council of Light http://www.rainbowbridgecoalition.org

I find your letter so beautiful and resonating with such clear-minded understanding about the divine circle of abundance that I've included it in the next Light series compilation. I could not agree more with you!

Subject: RE: About Praying for the President in XFiles #9
Date: Wed, 06 Feb 2002
I'm quite surprised, that praying or protecting the president is not in your agenda. I can only go on my own experiences with meditations. I allow my attention to flow to where it's needed most, and for some reason Mr. Bush pops up, and when he does, I see what looks like an iron curtain, all the dark forces are concentrating attention there. Yes, he may be too far gone for me to do any good, but he still has a heart, even if he can not use his own mind power. Sending him love and ideas of protecting the earth, or giving him support to combat the dark forces surrounding him, can not hurt. He is one man, and may be the only one today to change what has been done and what is being done. He's obviously making some crazy choices and throwing power around to any dog that will lap it up for the good of the NWO. Unfortunately he can do it and fortunately he can undo it. I pray that truth, life, love, and light prevails over destruction and control. He's the main puppet, and I feel sorry for the puppeteers that can't do their own dirty work.
AND MY REPLY WAS (in part):
As the title of that last compilation indicated - "Shedding More Light Into the Dark Abyss" - I'm not against sending Light to anyone as we are all kindred souls through our common divine origin - separation IS an illusion and there is NO enemy! Indeed George W Bush *could* radically change for the better if he so chooses. But if we are to succeed in influencing such a change, the only possible way is to stand up fearlessly for the truth and face up peacefully and lightedly to the forces arrayed against the push of universal benevolent Light Forces to free this planet from the yoke of oppression imposed by those manipulating the politicians and other leaders like Bush to achieve their rebellious aims.
ALL I CAN SAY AFTER READING THE FOLLOWING IS THAT MY HEART HAS BEEN DEEPLY TOUCHED BY THE SINCERITY, FORTITUDE AND COURAGEOUS COMMITMENT TO PEACE OF THIS MAN WHO, IN HIS WANING YEARS, IS TURNING INTO A TOWERING PEACEMAKER AND - IN MY VIEW - IS MOST WORTHY OF RESPECT AND ADMIRATION. I HONOR MY BROTHER ARAFAT FOR HIS BENEVOLENT FORGIVENESS AND ENLIGHTENED FORESIGHT OF BETTER TIMES TO COME FOR HIS PEOPLE AND, INDEED, FOR ISRAEL AND FOR THE WHOLE WORLD! NOW MAY OUR BROTHER SHARON - AND THE WHOLE WORLD - RESPOND IN KIND...

The Palestinian Vision of Peace
By YASIR ARAFAT
RAMALLAH - For the past 16 months, Israelis and Palestinians have been locked in a catastrophic cycle of violence, a cycle which only promises more bloodshed and fear. The cycle has led many to conclude that peace is impossible, a myth borne out of ignorance of the Palestinian position. Now is the time for the Palestinians to state clearly, and for the world to hear clearly, the Palestinian vision.
But first, let me be very clear. I condemn the attacks carried out by terrorist groups against Israeli civilians. These groups do not represent the Palestinian people or their legitimate aspirations for freedom. They are terrorist organizations, and I am determined to put an end to their activities.
The Palestinian vision of peace is an independent and viable Palestinian state on the territories occupied by Israel in 1967, living as an equal neighbor alongside Israel with peace and security for both the Israeli and Palestinian peoples. In 1988, the Palestine National Council adopted a historic resolution calling for the implementation of applicable United Nations resolutions, particularly, Resolutions 242 and 338. The Palestinians recognized Israel's right to exist on 78 percent of historical Palestine with the understanding that we would be allowed to live in freedom on the remaining 22 percent, which has been under Israeli occupation since 1967. Our commitment to that two-state solution remains unchanged, but unfortunately, also remains unreciprocated.
We seek true independence and full sovereignty: the right to control our own airspace, water resources and borders; to develop our own economy, to have normal commercial relations with our neighbors, and to travel freely. In short, we seek only what the free world now enjoys and only what Israel insists on for itself: the right to control our own destiny and to take our place among free nations.
In addition, we seek a fair and just solution to the plight of Palestinian refugees who for 54 years have not been permitted to return to their homes. We understand Israel's demographic concerns and understand that the right of return of Palestinian refugees, a right guaranteed under international law and United Nations Resolution 194, must be implemented in a way that takes into account such concerns. However, just as we Palestinians must be realistic with respect to Israel's demographic desires, Israelis too must be realistic in understanding that there can be no solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict if the legitimate rights of these innocent civilians continue to be ignored. Left unresolved, the refugee issue has the potential to undermine any permanent peace agreement between Palestinians and Israelis. How is a Palestinian refugee to understand that his or her right of return will not be honored but those of Kosovar Albanians, Afghans and East Timorese have been?
There are those who claim that I am not a partner in peace. In response, I say Israel's peace partner is, and always has been, the Palestinian people. Peace is not a signed agreement between individuals - it is reconciliation between peoples. Two peoples cannot reconcile when one demands control over the other, when one refuses to treat the other as a partner in peace, when one uses the logic of power rather than the power of logic. Israel has yet to understand that it cannot have peace while denying justice. As long as the occupation of Palestinian lands continues, as long as Palestinians are denied freedom, then the path to the "peace of the brave" that I embarked upon with my late partner Yitzhak Rabin, will be littered with obstacles.
The Palestinian people have been denied their freedom for far too long and are the only people in the world still living under foreign occupation. How is it possible that the entire world can tolerate this oppression, discrimination and humiliation? The 1993 Oslo Accord, signed on the White House lawn, promised the Palestinians freedom by May 1999. Instead, since 1993, the Palestinian people have endured a doubling of Israeli settlers, expansion of illegal Israeli settlements on Palestinian land and increased restrictions on freedom of movement. How do I convince my people that Israel is serious about peace while over the past decade Israel intensified the colonization of Palestinian land from which it was ostensibly negotiating a withdrawal?
But no degree of oppression and no level of desperation can ever justify the killing of innocent civilians. I condemn terrorism. I condemn the killing of innocent civilians, whether they are Israeli, American or Palestinian; whether they are killed by Palestinian extremists, Israeli settlers, or by the Israeli government. But condemnations do not stop terrorism. To stop terrorism, we must understand that terrorism is simply the symptom, not the disease.
The personal attacks on me currently in vogue may be highly effective in giving Israelis an excuse to ignore their own role in creating the current situation. But these attacks do little to move the peace process forward and, in fact, are not designed to. Many believe that Ariel Sharon, Israel's prime minister, given his opposition to every peace treaty Israel has ever signed, is fanning the flames of unrest in an effort to delay indefinitely a return to negotiations. Regrettably, he has done little to prove them wrong. Israeli government practices of settlement construction, home demolitions, political assassinations, closures and shameful silence in the face of Israeli settler violence and other daily humiliations are clearly not aimed at calming the situation.
The Palestinians have a vision of peace: it is a peace based on the complete end of the occupation and a return to Israel's 1967 borders, the sharing of all Jerusalem as one open city and as the capital of two states, Palestine and Israel. It is a warm peace between two equals enjoying mutually beneficial economic and social cooperation. Despite the brutal repression of Palestinians over the last four decades, I believe when Israel sees Palestinians as equals, and not as a subjugated people upon whom it can impose its will, such a vision can come true. Indeed it must.
Palestinians are ready to end the conflict. We are ready to sit down now with any Israeli leader, regardless of his history, to negotiate freedom for the Palestinians, a complete end of the occupation, security for Israel and creative solutions to the plight of the refugees while respecting Israel's demographic concerns. But we will only sit down as equals, not as supplicants; as partners, not as subjects; as seekers of a just and peaceful solution, not as a defeated nation grateful for whatever scraps are thrown our way. For despite Israel's overwhelming military advantage, we possess something even greater: the power of justice.
Yasir Arafat was elected president of the Palestinian Authority in 1996 and is also chairman of the Palestine Liberation Organization.

World Economic Forum Takes Left Turn
by Jim Krane
NEW YORK (AP) - They came in solidarity with this terror-wounded city.
But since they arrived, speaker after speaker at the World Economic Forum has lambasted America as a smug superpower, too beholden to Israel at the expense of the Muslim world, and inattentive to the needs of poor countries or the advice of allies.
With the forum wrapping up its five-day session Monday, some of the criticism has been simple scolding by non-Western leaders. But a large measure has come in public soul-searching by U.S. politicians and business leaders. U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., cited a global poll that characterized Americans as selfish and bent on arranging the global economy for their own benefit.
``We've not done our fair share to take on some of the global challenges'' like poverty, disease and women's rights, Clinton said Sunday. ``We need to convince the U.S. public that this is a role that we have to play.'' Microsoft Corp. Chairman Bill Gates warned that the terms of international trade were too favorable to the rich world, a disparity that feeds resentment.
``People who feel the world is tilted against them will spawn the kind of hatred that is very dangerous for all of us,'' Gates said. ``I think it's a healthy sign that there are demonstrators in the streets. They are raising the question of 'is the rich world giving back enough?'''
Held in the Swiss ski resort of Davos in its first 31 years, sponsors decided to move this year's forum to New York to show support for the city after the Sept. 11 terror attacks. About 2,700 corporate and political leaders, clergy and celebrities came to discuss the world's problems, and have spent much time dissecting U.S. foreign policy, its possible role in breeding terrorism and the potential harms of globalization. Few protesters turned up Sunday near the Waldorf-Astoria hotel, site of the forum, on the fourth day of the conference. But mostly peaceful demonstrations miles from the hotel generated 159 arrests - the largest in a single day since the conference started - and one case of vandalism was reported.
The total arrested so far during the meeting grew to over 200, mostly for disorderly conduct.
In a curious convergence, the titans of business and politics at the meeting have seized on many of the same socially liberal issues that they have been accused of ignoring at past gatherings. The forum's agenda may have taken some of the steam out of street protests, which were sparse except for Saturday's turnout of about 7,000 demonstrators, and has even paralleled issues under discussion at the World Social Forum, an anti-globalization conference under way in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
In Brazil, speakers on Saturday condemned the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands, with one comparing the practice to apartheid-era South Africa's creation of ``Bantustans,'' which were economically poor areas designated as homelands for blacks.
In New York, guests heard a similar message Sunday. Zbigniew Brzezinski, former U.S. national security adviser, warned that Palestinian violence risked evolving into large-scale urban terror, while Israel's response ``will slide into a pattern of behavior that resembles the South Africans.'' However, Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres said Sunday he saw ``a ray of hope'' for Mideast peace. New talks with the Palestinians could lead to a cease-fire, and mutual recognition of a Palestinian state and Israel's right to exist, he said.
Jordan's King Abdullah II called for ``international intervention to help steer the parties from the brink,'' arguing that the ``burning injustice of Palestine'' had ``fed extremism around the world.'' Brzezinski called for Washington to create a parallel social campaign to temper the anger against its military campaign against terrorism, to ``appeal to a better future'' in poor countries. ``It's very easy for the U.S. to slide into a kind of global alliance for the sake of repression,'' Brzezinski said.
U.S. Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., chided his colleagues in Congress for giving too much foreign aid to Israel, the largest recipient of American help, and said too little aid flows to the neediest. ``I've been critical of the aid we've given to Israel,'' Leahy said in an interview. ``But the same complaint could be made of a number of wealthy Muslim countries. They're not giving aid to the poorest of their own people.''

Subject: Psychic Children Message
This is one of the most important emails I have ever written to you.
Over the last six years I have traveled to war torn countries and meditated with reclusive Emissaries of Light. But nothing can quite compare to my recent experiences with the psychic children I met in Bulgaria, or the sudden revelation I received from one of them not more than ten minutes ago.
Let me back up for a moment for those of you who are not aware of these experiences. Most of us have heard about the Indigo and Psychic Children that are emerging to assist us in an evolutionary leap in consciousness. It is a very real phenomenon, perhaps more real than most of us realize. I realized that for myself in January, 2001 when I was giving a talk in San Francisco and met a ten year old Bulgarian boy named Marco who exhibited the most amazing psychic powers I have ever witnessed. (Not to mention that three days after I met him, I couldn't hold a spoon in my hand without it bending in half.an "ailment" that continues to this day. But that's another story.) Months later, after seeing Marco in a series of dreams, I traveled to Bulgaria to learn more, only to discover a monastery in the mountains devoted to training these amazing children before they can be perverted by a government program designed to "harvest" their powers for political purposes. The monastery was in the process of training four children at the time, and I was fortunate to spend a few hours with each one of them.
There were two things they all mentioned. The first was a question they felt they were here to ask humanity, a question that may hold the key to each one of us accepting our own enlightenment. They said: "How would you act and what would you do if you realized that you are an Emissary of Love right now?" (This is my own personal paraphrase from the many ways they expressed this idea.) The second was an energetic grid they have been weaving around the whole planet that enables them to consciously link with every other Psychic Child alive today. It is this grid that I want to address now.
Earlier this evening I was soaking in a hot tub in our back yard when I heard a small voice in my ears. At first I wasn't sure if it was my imagination, or if I was perhaps hearing a conversation in a nearby yard. But then I recognized the voice. It belonged to one of the four children I met at the monastery in Bulgaria, a young boy named Thomas. He was the child who told me the most about the energetic grid, and I suddenly had the feeling that he was with me again, but I wasn't sure how. All I can say is that a message came through, one of the most exciting, important messages I have ever heard, that confirmed something I had suspected for some time now.
He said that the grid was now strong enough to support the vast majority of the Earth's population. The grid had been established and was strengthened by the Psychic Children for two reasons: 1. To draw in the souls of other Psychic Children who would help shift the paradigm. 2. To offer an energetic platform for the rest of us to access that place within ourselves, enabling us to ascend to their level of awareness. Thomas explained that the work was now complete, and even offered a method for accessing the grid. I jumped out of the hot tub and immediately wrote the simple message down.
And there was one other thing. Thomas made it very clear that this message was only to be shared with individuals who "asked" to receive it. In other words, I was not to simply post it on a web site where anyone can stumble upon it. He explained that the real magic will only occur by actually requesting the information. It should be distributed free to anyone who asked, but they would have to ask. The message comes in three separate parts (very short), and will be emailed to anyone in three separate emails.
There are two ways to subscribe to the Thomas Messages.
1. Cut & paste this URL in your web browser and click on Subscribe http://www.topica.com/lists/ThomasMessages
2. Send a BLANK email to ThomasMessagesemail@example.com
Once again, please feel free to send this particular email announcement to everyone you can think of. This is information that needs to be shared with as many people as possible. It is very real, and very important.
In Peace, James F. Twyman

Here is what I found (in part) at http://www.emissaryoflove.com/book.htm
The most important question of our time is being asked by a group of young people who call themselves the "Children of Oz". Though they live in different parts of the world and have no way of communicating with one another, they claim to be linked together by an invisible force. But there is something even more fantastic that sets them apart from the rest of the world. They have the power to make things happen, to move objects without touching them and read other people's minds. This is not fiction but a real phenomenon, and they are among us now. The psychic children are here, and they have an important message for the world.

Subject: The Corruption of America
Date: Tue, 05 Feb 2002
When I was growing up in Michigan, people took pride that the United States was a democracy, that we didn't have beggars on the streets like those corrupt banana republics with leaders who sucked their country dry and didn't care about the common people. When I look around today, I realize that just in my lifetime the United States of America has become as corrupt, if not more so, than any other country on earth today.
I can't walk a few blocks in downtown Oakland without having three or four people ask me for money. Berkeley's worse. One of my Korean students in the summer English Language Program at UC Berkeley told me that once he saw the number of beggars on the streets, he changed his mind about attending UC Berkeley in the fall.
The homeless, the panhandlers, the "beggars" -- oh, we are so careful not to use that word, these are our society's canaries that warn us about the noxious fumes that are ready to engulf us. We who are impervious to their plight run the risk of not heeding the danger signal of a corrupt society that's on the verge of collapse.
I'm looking at our so-called leaders today, all the men in positions of power who have benefited from the "good ole boy"* network of politicians and businessmen conspiring to rip off the common people. What happened with Enron is only the tip of the iceberg. Stock market investors and speculators have benefited from earnings due to annual reports of corporations that commonly mislead people, and I'm sure that Anderson isn't the only accounting firm that's given a patina of respectability to many of these practices that hide the true story of a company's performance as a matter of course.
Our presidential election system was exposed last fall for the world to see how dirty it has become with corruption. And the political action committees (PACs) are not as innocuous as PACMAN's, as they've provided the mechanism for big money to corrupt our politicians and take over the legislative process to a large extent. Any honest person who tries to run for office will quickly find out what they're up against if they don't accept "big money". They just won't be very effective, if they somehow win office. Politicians with ideals find that they have to compromise again and again in order to get anything done, until they must wonder at how much of their integrity must they trade to benefit their constituents whatsoever.
I know many people who have read this far will dismiss what I say as a left-wing rant against Republicans, but I'm going to step out next into territory that's as forbidden as small talk about masturbation. I just want people to start looking more closely at who gets killed accidently or commits suicide during an election campaign or an expose such as Enron's and do the Perry Mason thing of figuring out who has the most to benefit by bumping someone off. Then we might start to uncover some bodies and find out that murder and skulduggery is as much a part of politics in the U.S. today as it's ever been in other countries.
* As a feminist, I think we should start calling this cronyism the "bad ole boys". Good they're definitely not.
