Rising Phoenix Series #8: Some Gems and Resurging Middle East Peace Movement


Hello everyone

If I had room for it in this compilation, I'd included right away the most inspiring speech by U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich called "A Prayer for America" he gave on February 17. It is definitely in the next Light Series compilation. In the meantime I believe you'll like the following gems and good news.

Enjoy and share!

Dear Jean

Thanks for your messages and all that is behind producing such extensive coverage. Re the Psychic Children, it's great that you have included some of their messages, but I do feel one very important part was omitted from the 2nd message. That is the encouragement to use the phrase "I am an Emissary of Love, NOW". It's so powerful, and the more people having this message in mind frequently through the day, the more powerful it will grow. It transforms every situation into bliss. Please share it with your readers.

Many many thanks and love,

Stephanie Challis

Note from Jean: There was not enough space left in this previous Light Series #17 compilation to include the entire message. I'm glad you brought this missing element to our attention Stephanie ;-)

Hi dear Jean,

Thanks as always for all the wonderful work you do for all of us on the earth and in the universe! Blessings.

It is strange... we can see now the stage being set, can't we? Enron scandal, big implications for certain govt figures. Important to divert attention All major corporations stock in trouble. Even more reason to pump up the economy with war. Keep the war going. Pick a country, any country. Find a reason to link with 9-11. If too many questions, too much discussion, find a terrorist threat to push the fear button. If that doesn't work, throw some poison, or a virus into the system. Too many of us anyway. If still not work, then blow some of us away. That will put the whole planet back into fear and the war games can go on and on and on. Right? Good pattern to follow... its worked a few times already hasn't it?

But those of us who understand that time is always now, and that past, present and future are one, we can work with this and correct this error -- in the present and the future. Using our visions of Light -- Earth inner light moving out from the central star core of the earth; Galactic Light moving ever closer as our frequency shift nears; Star light from those beings giving us the dimensional help we seek and need; Divine light from the angelic and etheric realm of Masters and Teachers who are always just a few layers beyond but with us all the same. Perhaps as we work with this light to widen the ley lines and the grid of our holy earth to become a carpet of light within and light without, our other terrestrial contact will come sooner than we think and the changes will transform !

In the New Earth, Love will be everything!

From: Antares <Antares@time.net.my>
To: George W Bush <president@Whitehouse.GOV>
Subject: Scouring of the Shire: An Open Letter To George W. Bush

Dear Mr President,

I humbly and earnestly beseech you, as a citizen of Spaceship Earth, to consider the grim and dire consequences of your warlike actions against humanity and the ecosystem; and having done so, to distance yourself, while you still can, from everything your family stands for, and the noxious influence of the business and military cartels that have groomed you and abetted your rise to worldly power. If you cannot find the inner strength and moral integrity to do so, then I urge you to tender your resignation as a gesture of grace and humility before the Indwelling Spirit of All That Is; and if that is too tall an order, then I pray with all my might that those amongst your compatriots who are as yet untainted by the foul breath of Sauron shall see fit to initiate impeachment proceedings against you.

I speak not as an enemy of America but as a friend to All. I was educated in New Jersey and count among my dearest friends many good, honest, and brilliant people who reside in the U.S.A. My daughters, too, were educated in the United States.

I have no religious affiliations but have little doubt about my spiritual worth. In this respect, I bear no ill will towards any religious faction but refuse to endorse any acts of cruelty or violence perpetrated against anyone in the name of the Almighty.

It is my fervent belief that Love will ultimately triumph over Fear. America's knee-jerk response to the horror of the 9-11 attacks has been founded on fear and falsehood, not love and truth. Along with billions of fellow humans, I watched in absolute agony and frustration as America launched its own brutal campaign of terror against thousands of impoverished men, women, and children in Afghanistan. And I observe with grave concern that nothing has been learned from the nightmarish experience of two hugely destructive and totally unnecessary world wars within the last century. The military solution is a barbaric one, with no exceptions to the rule. Those who seek to profit from war are morally ill and require deep therapy and love.

To further compound the atrocities of armed aggression, I note with profound chagrin that all the lofty ideals of freedom, justice, and equal opportunity that once made America a symbol of universal hope and the embodiment of democratic aspirations have been dealt a deadly blow with the insidious intensification of the police-state mindset.

Those of us who live in so-called Third World countries mismanaged by feudal despots have long looked to nations like the USA and Britain for moral support in our yearning for equality, freedom, justice, and true participatory democracy. Alas, in view of the nasty turn of events in the last few months, this has become a hideous joke.

It appears that the rule of Isengaard now prevails and that Saruman, calling himself Sharkey, has donned a dark suit and red necktie for his regular guest spots on CNN! Unless he is stopped, and the Shire scoured of Sauron's reptilian stench, our beloved Earth will be thwarted in her evolution, and find herself converted willy-nilly into the Death Star (if you'll pardon my mixed mythic metaphors).

Whilst I have no fear of whatever happens - the final outcome is assured, and darkness shall embrace the light and be redeemed to wholeness - there is always hope that much destruction, pain, suffering, and tragedy can be averted if we collectively come to our senses before we pull that trigger one more time.

It is in the spirit of eternal optimism that I write this message to the one man who is in a unique position in history; and who can, by the mere act of looking deep within his soul and coming to an understanding of the even bigger Game Plan, accelerate the healing of all wounds on this Earth, rather than mercilessly and willfully inflict new ones on an awakening humanity. That's right, I mean YOU, Mr George W. Bush, president of the USA!

For America is undoubtedly the New Rome, poised on yet another doomed attempt at world conquest through military might and media dominance, and those of us who are not Romans but who can understand and speak Latin, as it were, have no alternative but to voice our serious misgivings about your dangerous last-ditch efforts to retain control of the 3D Matrix.

There is no conflict that cannot be resolved, no seeming contradiction that does not ultimately serve a greater end. There is no injury, no lack, no despair, no so-called sin that cannot be succored, forgiven and transmuted by Love Supreme. Darkside-Lightside, Leftwing-Rightwing, Male-Female, Rich-Poor, Young-Old, Arab-Jew, Yin-Yang, Dum-and-Dee: let's quit fighting RIGHT NOW and work together to co-create a workable and eternal heaven on earth for ALL.

Amor vincit Omnia!

[X] Introduction

Ongoing escalation, and wartime-style media reports are losing their laming grip on the Israeli public. One and half year after the start of the latest Palestinian uprising a growing number of Israelis start expressing their anger and disgust at of the way of the Sharon government - the way of brute force. And the number is growing, the more that this way is seen to be unworkable. That's why thousands of people spent two consecutive Saturday nights to demonstrating in Tel-Aviv against continuing occupation and for withdrawal to the '67 borders. Many of the 10,000 who came to the earlier, Jewish-Arab rally, attended also the one held a week later at the inititaive of Peace Now - in the same square, but more densily-packed (there were some 15,000 - i.e. probably half of them people who had not joined the week before). Peace Now's idea was to bring in the more moderate people, those who (so they argued) don't identify with the refusers and are not willing to hear about Israeli war crimes. The surprise of the Peace Now rally (probably for the organizers as well) was that one of their scheduled speakers - KM Roman Bronfman of the dovish Russian immigrant party "Democratic Choice", which is Peace Now's partner in the "Peace Coalition" - did appeal to the public to support the refusers whom he called "the moving force of the growing anti-occupation movement". The overwhelming ovation which he got for it showed that also many of the "more moderate tribe" are impressed and moved by the wave of - as of now - 255 first time refusers of military occupation duty. [The number is constantly updated on the www.seruv.org.il site and the link with the number appears also on the Gush Shalom site.]

For more details and background, we advice reading the following:

[1] Something is Moving, by Uri Avnery

[Written16.2.02, published in Ma'ariv (Hebrew version) 17.2.02]

Something is Moving

I once saw in a Western a Red Indian (or should I say a Native American?) putting his ear to the ground and hearing a train tens of miles away. In the course of the years I have tried to imitate that Indian. I try to hear changes in the public mood long before they appear on the surface. Not to prophesy, not to guess, just to hear. Now I perceive the approach of a great wave of opposition to the bloody war against the Palestinians (nicknamed "Peace of the Settlements, following the name given to the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, "Peace of Galilee"). The revolt of the soldiers who refuse to serve in the occupied Palestinian territories is an important symptom, one of many. We have seen in the past several such public upheavals, that start with opaque noises and grow quickly into a public uproar. Such a wave rose during the Lavon affair in the fifties and led to the dismissal of Ben-Gurion. Such a wave carried Moshe Dayan into the Defense Ministry on the eve of the 1967 Six-Day War (led by the women nicknamed "the Merry Women of Windsor"), and the next one, which swept him and Golda Meir away after the Yom Kippur war. Such a wave got the IDF out of Beirut, and later out of South Lebanon (led by the "Four Mothers" movement.) The mechanism can be compared to a transmission of spiked wheels. A small wheel with a strong, independent drive turns a bigger wheel, which in turn moves an even bigger wheel, and so on, until all the establishment changes course. This is how it happens in Israel, this is how it happens in all democracies (see: Vietnam). It always starts with a small group of committed people. They raise their feeble voice. The media ignore them, the politicians laugh at them ("a tiny, marginal and vociferous group"), the respectable parties and the established old organizations crinkle their noses and distance themselves from their "radical slogans".

But slowly they start to have an impact. People leave the respectable (meaning linked to the establishment) organizations and join the militant groups. This compels the leaders of the mainstream organizations to radicalize their slogans and to join the wave. The message spreads throughout the parties. Politicians who want to be reelected adopt the new slogans. "Important" journalists, serving as weathercocks, smell the change and adapt themselves in time to the new winds. The famous anthropologist Margaret Mead said about this: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." And the German philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer, said: "All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident." Now it happens again. It is difficult to fix the exact moment when it started. Perhaps after the demolition of some 50 homes in the Rafah refugee camp. Or at the mass-meeting called by Gush Shalom in Tel-Aviv, when Colonel Yig'al Shochat, who had lost a leg in the Yom Kippur war, called upon his comrades, the airforce pilots, to refuse to carry out orders that are manifestly illegal, such as bombing Palestinian towns, and when the philosopher Adi Ophir proposed to open files on IDF officers who commit war crimes.

Suddenly the public woke up to the possibility that war crimes are being committed in its name. The mental block was broken, a public debate about war crimes, and consequently about the occupation itself, began. The announcement by 50 reserve officers and soldiers that they refuse to serve in the occupied territories broke a dam. The number of refuseniks grew quickly, the phenomenon shook the military-political establishment. For the first time, the leaders of the establishment saw in their nightmares the possibility of a big uprising of soldiers who say: This is where we get off, we will not go on. When public opinion polls showed that nearly a third of the Israeli Jewish public supports the refuseniks, the panic grew.

At the same time, hundreds of Israelis visited the besieged Yasser Arafat in Ramallah. Then came the big, joint demonstration of the militant peace movements ("The Occupation Kills All Of Us!") in Tel-Aviv's Museum Square. Organizations that had got used during the last 16 months to demonstrations of a hundred, two hundred people saw before them ten thousand enthusiastic demonstrators, who have left despair behind them and were demanding action. This demonstration had, of course, an impact on the "established left", which is now compelled to confront the new mood of their own public. This is the beginning of a process. Nobody can know yet how powerful it will become and how far it will go. But one thing is certain: something is happening.

[2] Update on support for refusal, Dorothy Naor - New Profile.

From: Dorothy Naor <dor_naor@netvision.net.il>

Update on Support for Refusing

The past several days have seen influential sources expressing support for the refusal to serve in the territories. On Saturday evening, February 16, at the demonstration organized by the Coalition for Peace, Knesseth member Roman Bronfman spoke before the crowd of about 15,000 in the Tel Aviv Museum Square. He declared his unmitigated support for the reservists' letter stating their refusal to serve in the territories.

On Sunday, February 17 support came from two additional influential sources.

Gideon Levy in Ha'aretz castigated those who acknowledge "that Israel is doing terrible things but fiercely oppose the refusal to serve in the territories for various reasons and call on soldiers not to carry out illegal orders," referring to "Members of the moderate Zionist left, from Ami Ayalon to MK Ran Cohen (Meretz), from the left of the Labor Party to Meretz." These, Levy says, belong neither to the Israeli majority who reject non-compliance with the draft, nor to the minority who support it. Rather, they belong to a third group, one that is "attempting to have its cake and eat it too."

"Those who support the third position have taken the easy way out - they tell the soldiers don't kill small children, don't prevent women in labor from going through checkpoints, don't beat up civilians for no reason, don't torment the innocent. But at the same time, don't refuse to serve in the territories, God forbid. Stand at the checkpoints and smile at the inhabitants whose lives you are embittering. That way, you will be both obedient and moral soldiers. Hand out candies to children after an operation, as battalion commander Lieutenant Colonel Tal Hermoni told his soldiers after they arrested, killed, destroyed and wreaked terror on Beit Hanun. Inadvertently, the battalion commander fully actualized this position of the left: Shoot and sweeten."

Also on the 17th, Michael Ben Yair, legal advisor to Prime Ministers Rabin and Peres, signed a petition supporting the Letter of the Reservists declaring their refusal to serve in the territories. With him, seven additional faculty members of the law school at Tel Aviv University likewise signed. Ben Yair justified his stand yesterday (Feb. 17) on the radio and in the Ma'ariv newspaper.

Today's Ma'ariv interviews him at greater length. He stresses the legitimacy of conscientious objection in democratic societies, noting that today's refusees might be tomorrow's majority, and reminding readers that Bill Clinton had refused to participate in the Vietnam war. "Our refusees," he states, "are restoring the moral back bone to the State of Israel."

One additional encouraging sign is the popularity of our New Profile booth at Saturday's demonstration. Most people that we spoke to either at the booth or when wandering among the crowd distributing our fliers responded very favorably to our announcement that we support those who refuse to serve in the military. The position we back has not yet gained major proportions, but is apparently gaining in popularity.

At this writing, an additional 200 reservists have added their names to the original letter, bringing the number to 253. May their numbers continue to grow, and thus help hasten the end of the occupation.

All the best, Dorothy

PS [by Gush Shalom]: This evening, more than three hundred allend a solidarity with the conscientious refusers taking place at Beit Ha'am Gallery in south Tel- Aviv, with speakers, artistic performances and and an exhibition of specially- donated paintings and sculptures by 52 artists.

[3] Briefing on the rally sent by Peace Now

From: "Peace Now" <peacenow@actcom.co.il>

February 16, 2002

Over 15,000 activists participated in the march and rally organized by Peace Now and the Peace Coalition in Tel-Aviv this evening, under the slogan "Get Out of the Territories - Get Back to Ourselves." (see Reuters photo: www.peace-now.org/ReutersPhotoFeb16-2002.jpg).

One of the highlights of the rally was the speech, in Hebrew, given by Dr. Sari Nusseibeh. "The path to peace is through the return of the refugees to the State of Palestine and the return of the settlers to the State of Israel," Nusseibeh said.

As the march commenced, news arrived of the atrocious suicide bombing in the West Bank. The aim of our protest movement is to struggle for a political solution that will break this terrible cycle of violence.While this weekend's violent events will undoubtedly push the rally into the margins of the media agenda, it is only the first in a long series of major street activities. Judging by the energy and atmosphere we felt on streets of Tel-Aviv this evening, it is just a matter of time before hundreds of thousands fill Rabin square again.

Peace Now and the Peace Coalition would like to thank the Coalition of Women for Just Peace, Taayush and Gush Shalom for their outstanding support and cooperation.

Further information: Press: Didi Remez will be out of the country over the next few days, please contact Moria Shlomot at 972-54-322834. Activists: There is a lot of work that needs to be done (office, weekend intersections, weeknight sign hanging, permanent vigils and organizing the next rally), get involved by contacting Ori Ginat, 054-405157 or ori@peacenow.org.il


[4] Old-New Israeli Voice of Conscience, Lev Grinberg Ma'ariv Feb 18

An Old-New Israeli Voice: The Voice of Conscience

By Lev Grinberg - Jerusalem*

In recent weeks a new voice is rising, loud and clear. A voice previously marginal and repressed, a voice that now threatens to inundate the entire country with the hope of breaking out of the crisis. It is the voice of conscience, which sees all human beings as equal, having the right to shelter, health, freedom and dignity, and above all, the right to life. The most salient expression of the new voice are the soldiers that declared their objection to serve the occupation, and the intensity of the reactions, be they negative or positive, that they provoked. But this is only one expression of the new voice's power.

The new voice permeates reports from the Occupied Territories, and it has begun to mobilize masses for action, in previously inconceivable scales, such as the last two Saturdays' rallies. The voice of conscience is both personal and collective, hence its strength. It is personal because each individual must be accountable for his actions. It is collective because it manifests social responsibility and creates a common language through which we are able to communicate, talk about the reality and connect with each other. The voice's intensity and growth potential stem from its clarity and unambiguousness. You cannot tell the voice of conscience that "we" want peace but "they" don't, because the daily abuse of the Palestinians and the provocative exterminations are clear for all to see. You cannot distract the voice of conscience by claiming that "Barak offered everything", because in terms of conscience, this does not justify the war crimes committed by the Israeli occupation forces.

And of course you cannot recruit soldiers with the militaristic argument that "we must win this war", because the occupation is not a war forced upon us, and woe to us if we ever do win, and thus succeed to maintain the occupation. The new voice's greatest power is its ancientness. There is no need to invent it; it already exists in the individual consciousness, in the Jewish and humanistic tradition. This is the voice of "Thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself" and "What is hateful to you do not do unto your fellow man". These are the values on which most Israelis were brought up, and this is the dormant voice now awakening. It is inside us, only until now it has been silenced by other voices, which mobilize a nation to war and raise primal fears that mute the voice of conscience.

This old-new voice is powerful enough to tear down the protective wall of blind militarism, of racism - that make distinctions between types of blood according to their origin, and of fascism - that demands national unity. The voice of conscience and the Jewish moral code are capable of establishing in Israel a different culture, a culture of tolerance and coexistence. The voice of conscience can link Jews, Christians and Muslims brought up on the sacred principle that all human beings are created in God's image.

The voice of conscience can provide an agreed-upon moral basis between Jews and Arabs according to the biblical, pre-democratic rule that "One law shall be for you, and for the stranger that sojourns among you". If this voice grows stronger, it can also provide the ethical basis required for rapprochement and resolution of the conflict with the Palestinians, which is now conceived as intractable, breeding a sense of despair and thoughts about leaving. The ancient Jewish voice of conscience is the voice of the new hope.

"This is now our moment of truth, and every one of us has to decide if he is or is not of the human race." Now that we can't claim we didn't know, all that's left for us to do is take a stand.

THE CLOWN CHAKRA

The Clown Scientists have found that all our problems can be placed under one heading: Seriousness. Seriousness is the leading cause of everything from Cancer to Reincarnation. Scientists from the Clown Academy have already discovered a new source of healing. It is a psychic energy point located between the heart chakra and the throat chakra. It is called the Clown Chakra. If people are feeling miserable, if they have financial problems, if their relationship situation is the pits,if they are in ill health, if they have a need to sue people, if they find fault with their brother, then obviously, their Clown Chakra is closed. When this happens, the scientists have observed under a high-powered microscope that the cells of every organ display a sad face, and when the Clown Chakra is open and functioning normally, the cells display a happy face.

The scientists realized that if a person is ill, it is because his mind has projected guilt onto the cells if his body and has forced out the love t hat is normally found within each cell of the body. The cells are therefore saying, "I lack Love," or "ILL for short. The scientists also discovered that all disease is due to the fact that the cells are out of ease or dis-eased.

When the Clown Chakra is opened and working (or rather, playing) properly, the psychic mechanism sucks up misery, pain, anger, resentment, grievances, unhappiness, etc., and converts the energy into tiny red heart-shaped balloons. The red heart-shaped balloons contain Love and Joy. These balloons are directed to the dis-eased cell or situation, and a happy V> face appears instantly. When the light enters the darkness, the darkness is gone. Sometimes these red heart-shaped balloons are called endorphins, due to the fact that when anyone experiences them, the feeling of separation ends. They experience being back home with All That Is and hence are no longer an orphan. This is the well-known end-orphan (endorphin) effect. So, if you think someone is attacking you, Clown Scientists recommend that you visualize sending that person red heart-shaped balloons filled with Love and Joy. Remember to keep your Clown Chakra open and remember to laugh. Seriousness causes reincarnation.
