"It was that a war had started. The President had been removed and there was a new President that was a Democrat from the East Coast. All to no avail as the New World was happening and that was all to melt away... the last scene I was viewing the sky and it was a multitude of colors...a new sky and a new world."

"The Harmonic Concordance was indeed a more subtle but no less powerful event that is still occurring even now as I write these words."
- Kalama Hawkrider (more below...)
"This is one of the key initiations as we shift beyond the 3D Matrix - a coming together of like minds in the One Heart - Con-CORE-dance - in perfect harmony, generating harmonic overtones of swift transformation that even now are rippling across the fabric of reality throughout the universe. A conscious stepping forth into our own inner authority and spiritual maturity - no longer afraid to declare our alignment with Source, our divine heritage as starseeds on this gorgeous, ascending planet. All fears and doubts dispelled by the simple act of gathering in the name of greater peace, love, and trust, a re-membering of our sacred destiny and earthly missions. A declaration of our conscious intent to reclaim our lives from the soulless Machine, and rededicate our energies to completing our incarnational tasks, fulfilling our evolutionary goals, setting aside anger, fear, and negative judgment of all that has disrupted the flow of love and truth and joy in the Old Paradigm."

"The energy accompanying the 'real thing' will not be mind-blowing ecstasy. It will be gentle, joyous, pristine clear. The real 'First contact team' will wait for your invitation. They are waiting for you to make a physical declaration of your intent, to do something to symbolize a stepping beyond the separation - to make a welcome expressed in the physical."

The November 20 Prayer was:
The Presence of God
As I sit here, the beating of my heart, the ebb and flow of my breathing, the movements of my mind are all signs of God's ongoing creation of me. I pause for a moment, and become aware of this presence of God within me..
Christopher Rudy firstname.lastname@example.org whose writings were included in a recent compilation, recommends the following to our attention:
The Harmonic Concordance "Ascent Process" accelerates with the "one-two punch"; first was the Lunar Eclipse Nov. 8th and now the Solar Eclipse Nov. 23rd. As above, so below. The "chosen" have always been those who choose the universal/cosmic meaning of the BIG PICTURE of celestial-terrestrial connection... on Earth as it is in heaven. As the veil thins and the "web of light" strengthens, the choices now made by Lightworkers will define, refine and combine (synergize) MORE LIGHT to harmonize THE PROCESS... whereby the Kingdom of Heaven is truly within you... and strengthens the "InnerNet"... the innerspace HEART of healthy cyberspace webs for spiritual "Net worth". The mysteries of God are going global. Everyone will "go to" where they are "coming from". Blessed be those who "Link the Light" and "make it so"... for Greater LOVE.

FIRST OUR INITIAL REQUEST...

We were a group of thirty people in Bromont. We read the wonderful message of Sananda relating to this event and for the period running up to November 23. I feel this is an incredible period of time. I feel day after day that I am rebirthing to a new self, a consciousness that is ever bigger and bigger. The ego is slowly letting go and a being with purpose, love and with a sense of mission is revealing itself. There is no time to lose, indeed. We are so surrounded by beings of light, that are ready to assist us through these events.
With love and ever gratefulness for all those who consciously share this change.

I did read the message from Nora about Harmonic Concordance. From my point of view the momentum of full moon explains a lot. Full moon is the point in the moon cycle that illusion is the strongest. New moon is the momentum that reality can be felt as it is easily. Full moon until new moon is the period that receiving is the strongest power, that period is very suitable for thinking over what has been and to plan new things. New moon until full moon is more suitable for to build what you planned, than the received energy will be manifested in the physical world. So the influence of Harmonic Concordance could not be felt ... it was just a little snowball on top of a high mountain that started rolling. Most people are living in the valley. People, that are highly sensitive, are living somewhere along the path to the top of the mountain. But the top itself is out of sight. But the snowball has been formed and started rolling downwards. It will gain weight and mass on its road to the valley....
Please hold on to focus on Light, Love, Peace and Joy manifesting in this world, please try to express these qualities in your own life as much as you can? Now more than ever, please?

The Harmonic Concordance was beautiful, though very subtle, as the best things often are. I fear some less experienced meditators may have allowed projections to interfere with the
energy. Those of us who have the experience to know just how much of a trap that is, will like you, have known how to allow the experience to be what it was without pushing or pulling (our egos will grab any chance to inflate).
For us in Italy it was an awesome eclipse. The cloud cover melted away after being heavy for
days, and the moon looked like a bite had been taken out of it from above. The crescent became ever finer, and gradually Luna turned a glowing brick red. The best part was spending all those hours with my partner and her teenager under the moon and stars, connecting with the ancient energies of the night sky, and intuiting how many other aware beings were praying for love and light to shower the planet, and remove any doubt.
OK I confess I was also praying a HUGE SPACESHIP would hover over the White House and
the pols would all be running out on the lawn and falling on their knees repenting their
hubris, but then I have a fertile imagination, and have seen too many movies!
There was a lot of sky traffic that night, but then it's all too rare that I'll stay up most of the night in November to skywatch, more likely to be searching for signs of human intelligence on the Web, warm in bed. Which tidily brings me to thanking you for a fine and methodical combing of world events to gather those of interest to us of spiritual bent.
Wouldn't want to live without it!

Subject: Comments to Your Readers on Harmonic Concordance
Date: 18 Nov 2003
It is interesting to see the comments come in from your readers about "nothing happening" during the Harmonic Concordance. I would like to add that all that was intended to happen had to do with each person's intent.
Most people are looking for something outside of themselves with a "save us" attitude. Whether it was the Hale-Bop Comet to the Ashtar Command's Mass Ascension to NESARA, all that your life is about is coming from you. Stop looking outside yourself.
So if you had no intents or visualized anything for your future during the Harmonic Concordance, then why does it surprise you that nothing seemed to happen? This was a gateway of energy allowing you to amp up your intentions. Nothing more. Nothing less. Again, it is all in what you make of it.
As for me, I created Heaven on Earth and continue to since I plan on being here for the duration.
Love & Light,

In reply to those thoughts about the Harmonic Concordance written by Nora I can say the following. We had a small group of 12 of us who met together for this occasion on Saturday 8th November which is a little before northern hemisphere time. A friend who brought her wonderful Indian drum started the proceedings off with some drumming which was quite powerful. We had been guided to use a crystal grid pattern using the Flower of Life pattern on the ground with the Star of David with 6 large crystals surrounding this. We all sat around in a circle outside under the stars around this configuration at various points of the circle. Then we connected with these grid energies and they were brought directly into our hearts which opened up our energy bodies. As this connection commenced we were all given huge angels which stood behind each one of us..... we could all feel this tingling as I was channelling this meditation.
I had previously been given excerpts concerning this night but had lost the original meditation which was given for this night. So we all laughed about this as being part of Divine Order. So we went with the flow and was guided to bring in the three fold flame of blue, pink and gold and other sacred geometric shapes came into play as well as well as the rainbow spirals of Mother-Father God energies all through our bodies. We were all taken up into this rarefied peaceful place where we remained for about an hour and we all commented on how magical this all seemed. I had turned on the CD right before we went outside but it never came on until we were being brought back. We all thought someone had gotten up to turn it on and actually heard the footsteps.......but no one had.
Also another thing which was truly remarkable is that it was a little windy that night and all the candles I placed around the circle kept going out because of it but when the proceedings started the wind died down and there was a kind of music in the air that we all could hear but not in the physical. We all felt truly blessed for this experience and were told that we were integral in opening up one of the portals to these new energies available to the planet now. And later at midnight we decided to again do some more work with the planet and received a wonderful healing energy which was so different to the first meditation and a quiet peace came over all of us as we just sat there and bathed in its beauty. Between the two meditation we had much laughter, singing and more drumming and of course supper and we all still feel the effects of this wondrous night.
This will live in my memory for a long time to come.
Blessings to all who joined in these energies at this time.

Jean, as per your request...I wrote this a week ago. Thanks for all that you do. We are near Byron Bay, NSW, Australia. We are still integrating the energy, seems like a much finer dimension [as in 4th, perhaps??] Love, Raya
What happened with the Harmonic Concordance.......
Here is a review of what it was like for us during the last 5 days. We really started feeling the energy of the shift last Friday. We woke up totally polarized and deeply in our relationship "stuff". A most challenging day for us... it was pretty hard to see out of it but by mid-afternoon Brian announced in this little shaky voice "I think we are in the pain body." It is so powerful to really admit that it isn't real... not really real. It sure felt like it at the time...we just decided that tomorrow would be better.
Saturday morning we were to be getting ready to go up onto Mt. Warning, a sacred mountain nearby, for the Concordance events up there. We were no longer polarized, but now we were "walking through jello", or so it would seem. We just couldn't seem to get it together and just went to the beach and sat there and watched the ocean and did nothing for a while. We got home and again were lethargic. Finally at about 2:30 in the afternoon we had to force ourselves to move and get ready to go. Not easy to get it together, but we made it up there and got ourselves set up. There were people there that we didn't know and that irritated us...back in the pain body. I was so surprised to have this kind of experience when I was sure we would be in a state of Ascension by now. JJJ As evening rolled on we had a camp fire and placed a Star of David in candles on the ground and each of us told our story and intention. Things started to open up, thank God. I was starting to be really nervous about my state before this. Not what I had in mind at all....
Early morning brought a wake-up call by a Butcher Bird right outside our sleeping place. We jumped up, had a coffee and raced up to the top of the mountain. Then it started to get good. The energy up there is so awesome in the rain forest and we just settled right into the magic of the day. It had been raining during the night and there were crystal raindrops in the first sunlight falling from the huge fig trees that were such a signal of how the day was to go.
Later, after we hiked on the Mountain for awhile, we joined the others back at the camp ground and again formed a circle. We had some sharings and readings and the energy started to get focused again. More people arrived that we didn't know, but the family was gathering for the Gateway. At 12:00 [the Concordance time in Oz] we really began the focus and started oming. There were about 25 people there by then and it really started to amp up. There was a medicine "type" of lady that joined us and she did the most wonderful prayers and affirmations into the middle of the circle while we were all oming, sending our group intentions out to the creative level. It was really amazing to feel the planetary gathering of the "big tribe" at that time. I loved it. Felt so much light coming out of myself, it was really intense. After about half an hour we again each shared what we were feeling and expressed our gratitude. A Brother anointed each of our foreheads with an ochre paste of red soil from the outback and also the center of our hands. We then each offered a combo of nutmeg, corn, and sage into the earth with our prayers for her. That brother said "the only thing I didn't bring to offer her was some water." One minute later it started to absolutely pour rain! Before the rain, when we were to speak our gratitude into the circle, I was very surprised when it was my turn. I burst into song in a very loud and clear voice and sang "The Earth is Our Mother". It didn't feel like it was me, or it was a part of me that I'm not used to accessing. Felt like pretty big Ju-Ju. That song isn't a familiar one here in Oz. Then the rain came and we all scattered for shelter and had some lunch.
When we got home and after we did all of the busy stuff and showered and laid down on our bed we realized that we really felt weird. As in strange! Very freaky...started asking for guidance and was told that we needed to sit across from each other with our legs entwined, mine on top and his around my body. As soon as we did that we could feel this polarity change and realized that we were integrating the male and female energy that was a main part of what this Concordance was about. As we sat there like that peace descended, completely. We sat like that for about three hours meditating and talking and integrating. What a trip.
Monday we were so altered that all we could do was "stare" and just be still, all day. At about 5:00 I had a kind of nervous energy that was so strange that I had to take Rescue Remedy. That night we went to sing with a group of people and with a master teacher, Chris James, that teaches awareness through sound. It was awesome. Cleared up again.
Yesterday, Tuesday, we were again in an integration cycle and had to go to bed in the middle of the day and sleep for two hours, deep sleep, woke up energized and again felt like someone I didn't know. Then we had the Tuesday night Om circle here and there were 11 people here and it was 11/11. Cool, huh? Energy was flying all over the place and after they all left we saged the place thoroughly. Again went to bed and then it got really interesting.
I had this dream that just blew me away. We are in a city that I thought was Berkeley in the dream state. The sky all of a sudden turned all of these different colors and clouds were moving all over the place. People everywhere were panicked and running all around. I was flying [loved this part] above heads and that freaked the people out even more. There was an escalator with many people on it. Then I was in a hospital and all the members of my family were there, including a small baby. My Mother, Father, Sister, Brother and a few other relatives. No-one knew where Brian was and I began this major search for him. Flying all over the place looking for him. Then he came walking up, wearing a terry cloth bath robe and said he had news.
It was that a war had started. The President had been removed and there was a new President that was a Democrat from the East Coast. All to no avail as the New World was happening and that was all to melt away...the last scene I was viewing the sky and it was a multitude of colors...a new sky and a new world.
So, now I am here writing it all down to share as it seems like something really happened. Had a laugh as we turned on the news from the States and it was still the same old, same old. Little do they know. I don't think they are going to be able to keep the illusion up much longer...none of it is real. At least not in my world!

HARMONIC CONCORDANCE AT MAGICK RIVER, MALAYSIA
It all went like magick. I called up a month ahead to book Maycliff Bungalow for the celebration and was told the weekend of November 8-9 had already been booked - but no one had paid any deposit so there was still a chance of a cancellation. Called again the next day and was told the place was available. Just like that!
I didn't know how many would show up but a few days before the weekend, friends began arriving for the party - so, no matter what, I knew we would have a lovely time. As it turned out, old soul family members associated with Magick River got to meet the new soul family members and there was nothing but sweetness and love in the air. And when I finally arrived at Maycliff Bungalow around 5 p.m. there were already 7 or 8 djembes, a darambouka. a didgeridoo, one guitar, and an assortment of percussion instruments like kalimba, Tibetan bells, and wooden sticks. So there was DEFINITELY going to be a drum circle that evening.
The drumming started around 6 p.m. and broke off for a delicious dinner - more than enough to go around, thanks to Lami the Earth Mother caretaker (I didn't eat much as my stomach was a bit fragile). Soon afterwards more musicians arrived, with more djembes, tambourines, and even a kahu (which looks like a wooden crate with a hole cut out; you sit on it and bang the sides with your hands!) As the trance-inducing polyrhythms continued, everyone got drawn into the beat and tried his or her hand at jamming on djembes or sticks or empty bottles. It was a pretty solid and funky pulse that kept going, occasionally reaching a crescendo, and then subsiding into a hypnotic jungle rhythm. People would get tired and hand over their instruments to others, so there were hardly any breaks. I had a couple of Balinese flutes which added some melody and soul to the proceedings.
Initially the weather was wet and everyone kept to the bungalow, but around 10 p.m. the sky cleared, the numinous full moon shone through a gap in the clouds wearing a vivid rainbow halo - and within half an hour, the entire sky was completely cloudless! Some of us sat down by the river, awed by the serenity and majesty of the moment. I discussed the significance of the Grand Sextile Alignment with those keen to understand the cosmic implications of this epochal event.
Then it was more trance drumming while people spontaneously got on their feet and danced. I didn't make a head count but my guess is that there were at least 44 adults there, plus a handful of kids. Ahau (my 7-year-old) was grooving to the drums, laughing and singing to himself on the carpet - and a few Orang Asli kids suddenly appeared at the party, dipping into the delicious Concordance punch one of our soulsisters had prepared and getting a bit tipsy. They really got into the drums.
I was up all night but around 6:30 a.m. decided to sit quietly by the river and greet the dawn. My wife Anoora and Ahau came down the steps to join me and it was amazing to feel Ahau's little hands on my head as he gazed in awe at the silvery early morning light - something to be experienced with the cheery babble of the river just a few feet away! Finally I had to stretch out and recharge. It seemed like I'd only been asleep for 10 minutes when I was awoken by all the movement around me and the sound of breakfast being served. I checked the time: Eclipse Peak would be at 9:13 a.m. local time. so I suggested that we go down to the Baby Fall to mark the moment. Only 13 or 14 of us were down there, the others were either sleeping or playing in the river further upstream. The air was sweet and fresh and there was a sacred pause as time seemed to merge into timelessness. I swam across the river and sat atop a rock saluting the Sun. The Moon was nowhere in sight, so I had to look at pictures of the lunar eclipse downloaded later from the Internet!
Nothing happened at the Harmonic Concordance weekend. Everyone was in high spirits and there were lots of smiles and hugs. The energy felt just perfect, it was as if we were all in an ark, sailing across a vortex in the spacetime continuum. Whoever was meant to be there WAS there. Whoever had to leave had left. Lami whipped up some spicy vermicelli and that was my brunch - I didn't really need to eat, there was so much prana to imbibe. More drumming, this time with greater attention to textures and variations - sometimes it sounded so good it was a shame no one had thought to record the music. A bit of editing and we might have had the makings of a trancedrum album!
Amazingly, I can't remember the details of what happened the rest of Sunday. All I know is that some had planned on staying an extra night at the bungalow while some had to return to the city. A handful transferred back to Pertak Village where we have a weekend retreat just next door to my little house. The party had now split into two but the festivities and euphoric vibes continued! As it turned out, a whole bunch of soul family members had made plans to stay the entire week at Pertak Village - so the Concordance energies were kept alive in the sweetest, mellowest way. There was a DVD projector next door so we could watch episodes from Steven Spielberg's 'Taken' - what a brilliant storyteller! That little alien hybrid girl, Allie, was extraordinary!!!
Well... that's approximately how the week passed at Magick River on the 3D level. What has happened on the inner planes is much harder to describe in words, but I'll give it a go. Firstly, I feel an immense sense of accomplishment - a deep bone-marrow knowing that WE HAVE MADE IT THROUGH THE PORTAL! ALL OF US - EVEN THOSE TOTALLY UNAWARE OF THE HC AND THOSE SCORNFUL OF SUCH AIRY-FAIRY NOTIONS!
This is one of the key initiations as we shift beyond the 3D Matrix - a coming together of like minds in the One Heart - Con-CORE-dance - in perfect harmony, generating harmonic overtones of swift transformation that even now are rippling across the fabric of reality throughout the universe. A conscious stepping forth into our own inner authority and spiritual maturity - no longer afraid to declare our alignment with Source, our divine heritage as starseeds on this gorgeous, ascending planet. All fears and doubts dispelled by the simple act of gathering in the name of greater peace, love, and trust, a re-membering of our sacred destiny and earthly missions. A declaration of our conscious intent to reclaim our lives from the soulless Machine, and rededicate our energies to completing our incarnational tasks, fulfilling our evolutionary goals, setting aside anger, fear, and negative judgment of all that has disrupted the flow of love and truth and joy in the Old Paradigm.
Noting the internal shifts, subtle as well as not-so-subtle, and allowing them to happen without getting caught up in our own dramas... simply surrendering to the phototropic thrust of our awakening souls.
And knowing that we are immortal multidimensional beings of spirit made flesh, here to learn and teach, love and be loved, to play in the Garden of Jesse, reunited with our Godselves, reconnected with Source, forever.
So mote it be!
Infinite Rainbow Blessings & Full-Spectrum Love,

This is Kaushalya again from Sri Lanka. We are a group of Pranic healers who joined in the global meditation during the harmonic concordance. We were 15 of us. We started off half an hour before the eclipse time. We did Twin Heart meditation. The most wonderful thought was that we all joined in from various parts of the world & were together in Oneness in spirit receiving the energy of Christ. It was a very beautiful experience. For 5 long hours we were together meditating, singing bajans & it was real satsang. We were FULL when we dispersed.
We are also getting together on the 23rd during the eclipse.
P.S. After you posted the programme about the meditation there was a lady of German origin who contacted me & joined in.
May there be peace in the Universe.

Thanks as always for a lively and loving compilation. I look forward to whatever you send to keep me informed and uplifted with positive news.
The Harmonic Concordance was indeed a more subtle but no less powerful event that is still occurring even now as I write these words. It began, I believe, with the tremendous influx of solar magnetic releases, 10-13 x larger than the earth, an event having relatively little effect upon our own electric devices, precisely because it had little to do with that and more to do with raising the frequency of all on Earth.
I had the good fortune to be present at Patti Cota-Robles monthly evening meditation in Tucson AZ the Monday before the date. In this group of nearly 100 like minded souls, we went high and deeply into the love and light of this event. I personally experienced a tremendous heart opening and past life memories that were significant, positive and loving.
On Saturday, I attended a training for volunteers of the campaign to elect Dennis Kucinich as President, and gave a short presentation. About 4:30 pm MST, I began to experience waves of energy. Being extremely energy sensitive, I knew this was different. I sat down, closed my eyes, and immediately saw a symbol, indicating the activity of this time.
This was a new representation of energy coming into and round the earth, earth reaching up to accept it and the vehicle through which this energy was conveyed.
For the next 3.5 hours, I could feel the energy coursing through me, and felt such joy and laughter and yes, bliss. I sat with eyes closed and began sending distant healing to connect with all other beings of similarity to me: all the earth, all humanity, animal life, all the clients, spiritual groups, political groups, all that need healing, etc. You get the idea... a bit like reaching out and allowing the network of light coming through me to reach its ultimate end, and connect to the ALL THAT IS.
Needing to drive home, I had to ground a little, but throughout the week, it has been continual opening.... faced with a blockage and the choice presented... look at the positive, and open to manifest it... or look at the negative and feel mired in the muck. New and old juxtaposed into a wonderful evolving tapestry that is us in the making. I continue to connect energetically with all that is mine to know and love... I continue to open my heart in a never ending wave form of unconditional love. The choice was never more poignant or more visible on this earth. We receive and experience whatever we focus on with strong emotion. Hope, joy, Love, Peace are all within our reach, despite all outer appearances. You choose. Try it everyone... if we all did it together for a day or even for a minute... WOW what a magnificent world that it is!
Blessings to you dear Jean,

There is a Star Ship named Capricorn above the skies of North America. Occasionally its occupants are able to communicate with us. One of those occupants is John McCrae, author of In Flanders Fields. He sent this message through Helen Engel, an intercommunicator,
November 18, 2003
In the glow of the evening, shadows fade.
Which darkness comes upon the land?
The darkness of comforting stillness,
Or the darkness of evil intent?
What if trumpets were to blow
In the sky above your head?
Would you be aware of us then?
What if we sprinkled perfume
Upon your winter grass,
Would you wonder from whence
It has fallen?
Why are you so doubtful
That goodness should come from heaven?
Does not the rain fall
On your garden in spring?
Does not the sun warm your earth,
Making flowers bloom,
And lambs romp and play?
Look to the heavens for us
We are those who walked before you
We tilled your soil,
Climbed your hills,
Saw sunset glow
Loved and were loved,
And now we lie in Flanders Fields.
Take up the quarrel with the foe.
To you we throw the torch,
Be yours to hold it high ...
Yes, I wrote those words.
I too await the coming days
When I will walk again
On your beloved soil.
Look for us in the sky,
We come in peace to greet you now,
We come with love for all mankind.
Greet us with joy,
We are your family returned.
We are ONE.

Thank you or printing John McCrae's message. If you receive any feedback please direct it to email@example.com
The Galactic Federation is greatly in need of Scouts to welcome them, so that the people will not be afraid. The Federation had considered an en masse landing, but instead are going to do individual landings all over the world. I am preparing a manual for Scouts, we have received over 10 messages already, explaining the duties of Scouts and Guides.
By the way, Jean, for over two years I have communicated with Levar, and he is now channeling Helena, Captain of the Star Ship Capricorn. The message he received is at the bottom of this e-mail. I am so proud of him. Apparently he is a very important link in the chain. If you would like to receive his communications regularly, please let me know and I will send you the salient points from each. He is doing this almost daily now, to our delight. He must still be hidden, as most scientists are a bit behind the rest of us.
Thank you again for your wonderful work.
NOTE FROM JEAN: Helen mentioned in another email that "there is lots of Scouts and space information" at http://www.padrepioteachestheworld.org/vol1no4/celestials/index.htm
In relation to that you may wish to begin at http://www.padrepioteachestheworld.org/vol1no4/celestials/5.htm where Helen describes her first telepathic contact with Helena aboard spaceship Capricorn and how she was soon enhanced through a small implanted relay for better communication. Here is how Helen described this to me in another email : "I have a relay implanted just behind my right ear, that was installed by a craft, almost without my knowledge, certainly without my permission. They can monitor my thoughts, and when I am recording a conversation and the energies begin to fade, I type RELAY RELAY RELAY and that alerts a mechanism on their craft. A strong beam is directed to me, and I can continue to receive. It's similar to tuning the volume up on the radio, except that they are aware at that end." She also wrote: "One of the most exciting messages was from ALL THAT IS, indicating how the space craft is energized, and how a RELAY triggers a strong beam to a person on earth. When I channel I actually comprehend more than I can record, because of the inadequacy of the English language, so I end up comprehending more than the message. In this particular case I spent a special session repeating and expanding on what ALL THAT IS told me. I am sending that to you. Once understood, you too will be able communicate with the people on the craft, and your own ancestors may be on it. My own father is on it, and they speak of him many times, but they will not disclose who he was in a past lifetime."
It may all sound fictitious to many but I guess we all need to get used to lots of amazing changes and developments in our lives during the coming few months and years...
I have been associated with a new age scientist for almost three years, and he visited my home and read my scientific notes about a year and a half ago. He has wanted to intercommunicate with the scientists at the celestial Board of Scientists. This consists of old time scientists who lived before our time, such as Einstein, Dalton, Tesla, etc. These last few months he has been successful in intercommunicating with them.
During the past summer Helena, Captain of the Star Ship Capricorn, contacted me and we have regular intercommunication.
She has now contacted my friendly scientist friend, and I am sending you this morning's message that he recorded and forwarded to me.
I might add that a week ago Helena communicated to the scientist, saying that the Galactic Federation were discussing amongst themselves whether it would be advisable to come en masse, or to be more discrete. It appears as though they will be landing at strategic spots, a few at a time.
If you feel that you would like to be a Scout, to welcome them, or would like to gather Scouts from amongst your own light workers, please contact me. If you think that good would be done for the whole Plan by having the Galactics contact you personally, please write me and I will send the information to the Star Ship Capricorn. That is how they learned of the friendly scientist. Please be honest and let me know how such a meeting will help the Plan. Please forward this to those who should receive it. Many thanks.
In the Light,
HERE IS THE MESSAGE RECEIVED BY THE SCIENTIST ON SUNDAY, NOV. 16 A.M.
Helena: I have some information for you this morning. There will soon be dramatic changes being made on earth with the announcements of the NESARA program. You, too, will have some work to do to help us. We will be making our showing to the earth in the near future. One of our flyers will be visiting your part of the world. We will contact you for the best place to land. Then you will be able to tell the papers and other media about our coming. That will be a very interesting time for all of us.
There are many who desire to be able to help bring earth into the realm of our technology and science. However, we have to do our thing a bit at a time so that the earth people will not feel that they are being taken over or directed by some foreign aliens.
We have great love of the earth, the earth mother, and for the all of the people on earth. We are here and have been here for many of your months to await our time when we could be invited to assist you.
There will be many changes that will occur, such as the declaration of peace for all of the world. There will be many ! new things that the earth can do to help clean up the pollution that is slowly killing off sensitive life on the earth. There will be many who will wonder at us and many others who will want to help. These are great days that are coming.
We will be very pleased to meet you and to talk to you. There are great things that we can do together. You are an important part of what we plan to do. There are many who will be proud to know you and to work with you. That is all for now.
This is a simple question. Do you grow your own food on Capricorn?
Helena: Yes. As an organic gardener, you would appreciate how much we recycle everything and how we use artificial illumination for our growing plants. It is highly desirable that we be vegetarians on such a vessel as Capricorn.
Many thanks for you and your crew. I look forward to meeting some of you. Love and Blessings on you all.
NOTE FROM JEAN: I also recommend to your attention this website about Padre Pio which has been created by Helen at Padre Pio's initiative
Padre Pio passed over in 1968, and since then he has communicated with several persons on earth. He has expressed a desire that a web page be created, so that he can teach the people, as he put it.
Date: 20 November 2003
Dear Jean Hudon,
Here is the latest from Helena.
Communication with Helena, November 20, 2003
You are most kindly welcome to the information that I have for you. You are to be a recipient of important information from time to time both before and after we land. You will be able to use much of that information to better understand who we are, what we are doing, and how we can work together for a better earth world for all humanity. There are those of us who will be able to come down to earth and mingle with your people undetected. There are others of us who are obvious aliens and would not be able to be cloaked in a manner that we would remain undetected.
There will be a period while earth gets used to friendly aliens in which we will not be welcome to all parts of your world. We believe that the United States and Russia are two countries that can learn the fastest to tolerate the aliens as they come to visit with you. There are many of us who desire to be on earth and to be busily involved in doing good things to help the earth people. Most important is to clean up the atmosphere. While you have made a good attempt at methods for replacing the burning of fossil fuels, there are other technologies that we can add to those contemplated. There will be good business opportunities for many people to be financially involved and financially rewarded for their investment in new energy technologies.
There is important information about our shuttle and coming to earth that you have received from ???. This information is important for you also. There should be at least one hundred feet (between craft and visitors) away from the craft as it lands. Then after the motor noise stops then you can approach the craft to within about 25 feet. There is a door to the shuttle and it will open and some aliens will show themselves to the people and allow photographs. Some may believe that this is an earth craft and that the aliens are just dressed up humans. That will be their problem. We will show ourselves to as many parts of the world as there are people who are ready to greet us. One of the earlier flights will include the Salt Lake Valley because you are ready to accommodate us. Your valley is an important place because it is the headquarters of one of the churches that is doing so much good in the world. There are many other good churches and good people who will be ready to extend their aid to those who are in need. It will take some time for all of the good things that we can do together to be made available to a lot of the world's needy population. That is all for now. Any questions?
Lavar: I am concerned that I get part of your message changed by my own thinking. Can you tell me if I am getting your messages with reasonable accuracy.
Helena: Lavar you are doing an excellent job. Where there are problems in communication we will send the same message more than once and insure that there is proper communication and understanding. Lavar: Thank you most kindly. May the Lord's choicest blessings be bestowed on you for your wonderful work for all of earth.
*** End of message.
You will note that I have asked Helena if my accuracy in receiving information is reasonable. Apparently I am doing an acceptable job. Perhaps a bit of explanation about the church in Salt Lake Valley. This is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons). Many years ago, this church began a "Welfare Program" for it's members. Farms have been purchased in various parts of the country. Canneries have been established. Distribution warehouses have been established. Members donate all kinds of equipment, clothing, books, etc. Now whenever there is a disaster somewhere in the world, there is soon a large shipment of goods (clothing, food, etc.) to help those in need.
NOTE FROM JEAN: In a previous Nov 17 message, the following was mentioned:
Lavar: Will there be some of you who will stay here with us on the earth?
Helena: Oh Yes. However, for the first contact, we will merely show ourselves. Then later we will be welcomed into some of the places where both government and research reside.
IF YOU ARE INTERESTED TO REVIEW 4 MORE MESSAGES (Nov. 17 to Nov. 21) FROM HELENA ABOARD THE SPACESHIP CAPRICORN, I'VE POSTED THEM AT http://www.EarthRainbowNetwork.com/Archives2003/Levar.htm
Date: 20 Nov 2003
Subject: IMPORTANT Message From Korton
From: Helen Engel firstname.lastname@example.org
The following is an intercommunication received by one of our priestess members, who is Knight Commander of the ship in question. This message came through about June 17, I believe.
Early this morning after a meditation, I visited the Galactic Federation of Light Starship that I call "Home". I was in the viewing area expecting to see Commander Korton. This is a daily meeting. He is usually a bit on the serious side and often dealing in mind with a myriad of things at the same time as communing with me.
Today was different. Commander Korton was obviously very happy, relaxed, swashbuckling almost.
He welcomed me and took me to look down from the viewing area to the Earth below. Between us and the curve of the Earth below, countless space craft were hovering, spead out above the Earth. (They are cloaked from Earth sensors as yet - they are neutralising the holograms which are currently being created by those who wish to hang on to their controlling power on Earth.)
My understanding is that an illusionary 'First contact' is being staged to deceive those here. The GFL are neutralising them as they appear but some bits are temporarily getting through.
Be sure to set your protective energy field around you - so that you will be able to distinguish between the illusionary hologram and the 'real thing'. Be aware that what appears to be loving energy may be a manufactured semblance only.
Be clear. Be aware.
The energy accompanying the 'real thing' will not be mind-blowing ecstasy. It will be gentle, joyous, pristine clear.
The real 'First contact team' will wait for your invitation. They are waiting for you to make a physical declaration of your intent, to do something to symbolise a stepping beyond the separation - to make a welcome expressed in the physical.
"Don't worry about language. You will be understood by us. If you are clear, you will be able to understand us mind to mind too. The key is in the heart - in openness."
(These dates refer to November this year)
"The 22nd is the Day of coming near.
The 23rd is the Day of welcome and joy.
The 24th is the Day of clearance.
The 25th is the Day of new beginnings and celebration."
I'm not really into numerology, however the following came to me as I considered the 25th. It came as a package of meaning instantly. 25th 2+5 = 7 The number of Christ plus the month November 11 1 + 1 =2 2 + 7 = 9
The number of completion and progress
2003 = 5 5 + 9 = 14 1+ 4 = 5
The number of humanity - whole again

MESSAGE FROM MAYAN ELDERS OF THE EAGLE CLAN, GUATEMALA, CA
The following is excerpted from the article "Message from the Mayan Elders of the Eagle Clan, Guatemala, CA". The full text of which is available on http://www.sacredroad.org. This portion of the article is of particular importance because these elders wish to alert the world to the significance of not only the present time, but specifically the period of December 4-7 of this year. What follows is their request for humanity to join together during this time in prayer and meditation in a manner that relates to what they have outlined below. We have received specific requests to distribute this information as widely as possible; please help us with this purpose if you can. We have not previously received a similar request.
FROM DECEMBER 4- TO DECEMBER 7 OF 2003
Inside the charge of these cycles of changes, there are vortexes that open up a space. After the red planet distances its charge, there is a subtle convergence between the cosmic and telluric forces, a time that lasts four days. This openness gives us the opportunity to create the force and balance. It is a sublime space that will allow us access to Jun'ab'ku, heart of the heavens. This is a good time to ask for the internal strength, strength for the community for the consciousness and to synthesis with balance. This is the moment when the strength of all those beings of light, are needed. If possible it is asked to fast, perhaps on fruit, to remain abstinence for at least four days prior and to do ceremonies at sunrise and sunset. It is important to work from sunup to sunset on both the 4th and the 7th, because this is the opening and the closing. The point or focus is to create the longing desire to awaken the south. Beginning from the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, to the Amazons, to the mountain range of the eternal snows of the Andes and carry that energy to the most ancient mountains on this part of the world in Cordova Argentina. The transcendence of this moment is of much importance for beloved mother, PACHAMAMA. It is also the survival of this "fourth humanity".
The day of the 4th brings to us the energy of the Nawal Tzikin, the great intermediary between the heaven and the earth. It is the messenger and the eagle-quetzal-condor that will create the unity between the north and the south. This will permit us willingly if we joined our forces together throughout the continent and around the world to awaken the Saq' Be, the white path. On this day we focus on the divine messenger that carries our prayers, our feelings and the drumming of our hearts. Let it be that on this day there is only one heartbeat, one sound of drumming calling upon the four corners of the universe and at last finding Great Spirit. In the north it is the Eagle, in the center it is the Quetzal and in the north it is the Condor, (the ancestral messengers between the human and the divine). So, lets have just one heartbeat, one fire, a simple ceremony but very majestic. Let's travel to the sacred places and reclaim the harmony.
The day of the 5th brings to us the energy of the Nawal Ajmak, the keeper of the sin and forgiveness. This is a day to reflect upon our lives, to be in silence and to go within, to look at the damage we may have caused consciously or unconsciously, to forgive and be forgiven, to forgive ourselves, but most of all to ask forgiveness for the damage we have caused mother earth. We also need to ask for forgiveness for those that destroy without conscience but only for the madness or for riches. This is an internal ceremony we do. The elders will be having their fires and ceremonies, but our connection will be channeled towards the south to awaken the force and the return of the wisdom of the condor. This is the moment of the return of the kingdom of TIHUANTISUYO, the giant panther. As of now it is called the kingdom of INCARI. As a day of duality, the energy gives way to balance between the polarities, so this is what we need to focus on.
The day of the 6th, brings us the energy of the Nawal Noj. This is the keeper of the wisdom, the harmony, the balance and the understanding, the power of the mind and of the imagination. This is a day to use the energy of the mind to create the power of balance. On this day we need to practice internal peace as well as peace with the community. The polarization based on the religious fundamentalist is reaching its unsustainable limits and it depends on beings that are committed to the essence of the real spirituality and the survival of the human race and of mother earth, to help stop this energy. Let's not forget that this thing we call reality is mental, the "great illusion" and the one that commands this force is the Nawal Noj. Ii is recommended to light white candles and to create chains of meditation and raise our words to the heart of the heavens and to the Great Spirit. We need to purify internally and check our own existence so we can do away with that which no longer serves us and to be free of antagonizing forces so can then create the force that needs to govern now which is harmony.
The day of the 7th brings us the energy of the Nawal Tijax. This day is the culmination of this cycle that opens with the intermediary between the earth and the sky, followed by the forgiveness and the sin, then followed by the purification of the mind (creator of all illusions), well Tijax is the double bladed knife, it is the energy that opens up dimensions and the vortex on this day, creating a space extremely subtle and only perceptive to sensitive spirits. To us humans it gives us the opportunity to cut the negativity, to let go of that which holds us back to the vain illusions, to open up our hearts, to awaken and be able to create the balance between the polarities. We need to ask for all the spiritual guides, so they can leave behind their personal importance, so they may know how to guide us without competition and to be united and so they may not forget they are not the keepers of the truth. Each and every one of us brings a force and internal power and that all the truths are part of one manifestation of reality and this is how we'll be able to face the changes we are about to encounter. This will allow us to reach the date of Dec. 21 2012 with much harmony. This is the purpose of Tzacol, the planet on being alive, to then transcend to the 5th Ajaw.

Subject: New Book: We Are Everywhere - The Irresistible Rise of Global Anti-capitalism
Date: 19 Nov 2003
I'm a new reader. Thanks for your newsletter.
I would just like to bring your attention to a new book that's very interesting from the standpoint of what many people are feeling all over the planet. While I certainly don't agree with some of their solutions, it's still a very interesting read if your watching what's going on. I will be putting up a review of it next month on our site.
The site is http://www.WeAreEverywhere.org. The book can be ordered there, and also it's available for download at:
I've also put up a mirror for those in Central America at:
Lots going on, hard to keep track of it all! Thanks again for your work.
Regards and greetings from Costa Rica,
Editor in chief
I CHECKED IT OUT AND HERE IS WHAT THIS IS ALL ABOUT - QUITE EXCITING!
We Are Everywhere - The Irresistible Rise of Global Anti-capitalism
Over the past few years the editors of the forthcoming book We Are Everywhere: the irresistible rise of global anticapitalism (published by Verso, 2003) have been immersed in the global movement of movements. As events have swept from Chiapas to Seattle, Genoa to Bangalore, Québec City to Cochabamba, Capetown to Buenos Aires, we have been busy working as activists and writers, story chasers and documentarians, and have somehow managed (between the organising and the teargassings) to capture and collect some glimpses of the crucial moments and inspiring stories from around the world.
We wanted a way to document, broadcast, and amplify the sense of extraordinary possibility created by the multitudinous uprisings taking place across the world. And so we combined our collective experiences, writings, ideas, and contacts to produce a book.
We Are Everywhere is the result. It's a radical intervention in publishing - a celebration of direct action movements across the planet, unfiltered by the mainstream media, and told through the words and images of the people who were (and still are) there. Framing and connecting their stories are seven essays , written by the editors, which explain some of the defining characteristics of this movement. We've also included how-to boxes on direct action tactics. Running along the bottom of each page is a time-line of actions and victories which spans from 1994 with the Zapatista uprising to the present. Interspersed amongst everything else are gorgeous photographs, which capture the diversity and playfulness of our actions. These elements all add up to a real overview of the movement: where we came from, what we want, who we are, and where we're going. We Are Everywhere is history as it should be told.
The Zapatistas, whose indigenous uprising inspired the world, have taught us, through their struggle founded on radical notions of dialogue and participation, to embark on a rebellion that listens. In this spirit, last year, we produced a 100 page preview booklet, "Notes from Everywhere," which we have given freely to activists at gatherings in Belgium, the UK, Bolivia, the US, Mexico, and Canada. The booklet was produced to inspire critique, ideas, and contributions to the final book, and this website aims to do the same.
We Are Everywhere is anti-copyright, and will be available for free online. It is neither academic thesis nor art book, neither agitprop nor critical analysis, neither inspirational document nor DIY manual - but all of these, woven together using innovative graphic design and photographs. Texts, images and interviews with activists merge in both printed word and this website, creating a lively, polyphonic insight into the ideas and activities of the movements against capitalism and for life. We hope the result proves to be an inspirational, authentic document of insurrection.

Subject: Re: Miscellaneous Subjects #197: Facing the Black Knights Straight On
Date: 20 Nov 2003
After looking at the items compiled here, and watching the news on television, I think perhaps that I'll rethink my plans of praying for the mild pressure-release-only of the Yellowstone National Park volcano. A 'super-volcano' eruption that will likely kill thousands of people in the middle of our nation and perhaps around the world might be just the thing needed. The more I see of humans and the behavior of humans, the less I think we are worth the energy it takes to save the species. We were given a garden, we've created a sewage and garbage heap. So sad. So terribly terribly sad. I'm questioning my resolve to add my prayers for the salvation of mankind, and am considering encouraging Mother Earth to take whatever steps She deems necessary to rid herself of the scourge mankind has become. Mankind is a vermin infecting the planet. So sad. I firmly believe we were intended to be much more than we are. But I see very little reason for striving for the saving of a species that has become a horrific disease .
AND MY REPLY WAS:
Please Bernard do not lose hope and faith.
Help is on the way. We are not left alone to face this mess.
Allowing such sentiments to gain sway over your feelings is enabling the dark influence in you to gain more ground.
I believe we must use the difficult challenges we face as a springboard to rise above our complacency, looking into ourselves to discover the amazing resources at our disposal - literally the very creative power that made this Universe a tangible "reality" - to not only turn things around outwardly but first and above all else to become the radiant, victorious Force of Goodness, Kindness and Compassion we came here to realize/manifest for the Highest Good of All.
In loving understanding
P.S. I feel it is necessary to include your comment and my reply in the next compilation as several other people are probably contemplating similar feelings as a result of the awareness created by this last compilation - archived at http://www.EarthRainbowNetwork.com/Archives2003/MiscelSubjects197.htm for those who may have not seen it yet.

Subject: Season of Light
From: "Dorothy J. Maver, Campaign Manager" email@example.com">
As we approach the shortest day of the year, the darkness that envelops our nation is almost overwhelming. Unilateral decisions are made based on separation, fear and a war mentality. These are decisions that will impact our children and generations to come.
It is the Season of Light, and as the Sun begins its true north journey once again, heralding new life and all things good, beautiful and true...
We must end fear...
We must offer hope...
And we must continue to give Dennis J. Kucinich
this timely opportunity to lead politics, our nation
and the world in the direction of peace and cooperation
with non-violence as the organizing principle.
Look back over the centuries ever since humankind has recorded our very colorful existence. So many movements that have taken humanity a step forward in relation to equality, equity and right relationship have had at their core the principle of non-violence.
And so it is that Dennis Kucinich takes his place in the annals of history. A practical visionary who has proven himself to the people of Ohio, he now asks for the chance to prove himself to the people of the United States of America.
Will you give him that chance?
Will you vote your hope in your primary or caucus?
Will you support his voice being heard above the din of politics as usual?
December 15, 2003 marks the 25th anniversary of the Cleveland MUNY Light decision. Dennis stood firm in the face of the banks causing the city to default and has since been proven right. He is now serving his fourth term in the House of Representatives.
He will lead the way to peace, economic security, and sustainability.
We invite everyone to join in the Celebration of Light on Sunday December 14 2003 as we gather in Cleveland, Ohio and in homes throughout the country to recognize and celebrate the Season of Light and Kucinich for President 2004.
It is time once again for we the people to come together as a nation in the spirit of freedom and cooperation...to lead the way to peace with non-violence at the core.
We must help create the world community that works for everyone.
In the Spirit of Peace,
National Campaign Manager
Kucinich for President

Deception by Omission
by Charley Cropley Charleycropleynd@aol.com">
Nov. 8, 2003
My dear friends,
This is the first of several articles I am prompted to write about the emerging progressive movement, 2004 elections, Dennis Kucinich and us. If I have erred in assuming this would be of interest to you, please notify me.
I am amazed and frightened to have discovered only days ago how successfully and subtly my perceptions and my sense of personal power are manipulated by our media. Until then I considered myself well aware of the media's motives and methods and therefore immune to their manipulation. However I have been more profoundly deceived and disempowered than I had thought possible. My deception runs deep; the consequences enormous.
I have come to recognize my deeper, more dangerous level of deception through a process of inquiring into why so many of my friends think Dennis Kucinich is not electable. Among my friends most say "Yes, nobody better represents me than Dennis Kucinich. But
I don't think he's electable." I kept asking my friends "Why? Please explain to me why you think that." I have not heard a single answer that is even slightly satisfying, even from my more intelligent and politically informed friends.
I love those moments when I recognize that something doesn't make sense to me. When I see clearly that I simply do not understand something and I need to investigate it more thoroughly. I reached that place with regard to Dennis being "not electable." I realized that I did not understand what the term "not electable" actually means. "Why?" I asked myself. "Why is he "not electable"? What specifically makes him not electable?"
Only months ago I had never heard of Dennis Kucinich. Lila Sophia Tresemer was the first person that spoke to me of how genuinely moved she was by him. Although I highly respect Lila I thought to myself that somewhere, somehow this man must be another new age candidate without a chance. It was precisely because I'd never heard of him that caused me to assume he must lack something. I wasn't sure what it was, but there must be some reason that I'd not even heard of him. It was hard for me to imagine that someone whose name I'd never heard could be a serious candidate for president.
So I began to educate myself about Dennis' life and political history. What I learned about this man appeared to be anything other than "not electable". In fact he seemed almost heroic, possessing seemingly unimpeachable integrity. I felt gratitude and a rekindling of hope that somehow such a candidate actually existed within our political system; that there actually was an electable candidate who represented my longings as accurately as Dennis Kucinich. I became satisfied that the label "not electable" does not match with Dennis Kucinich nor anything he has ever said or done. It is inaccurate. It is a lie.
Why had I never heard of a politician who has spent his entire political career since age 19 courageously fighting for my ideals? I shifted the focus of my inquiry from Dennis Kucinich to finding the source of these false beliefs. I personally have never actually heard or read the words "not electable" in the media. The only people I've ever heard speak them are my friends. And when I have asked my intelligent, committed, good friends why they say this nobody has yet come forth with an intelligent explanation. For vague reasons we cannot articulate it just "feels" that way. We believe something and don't know why. Interesting. Something strange is going on.
This morning, listening to "Democracy Now", Amy Goodman reported that during George Bush's upcoming visit to Great Britain that British authorities are preparing for the possibility of significant protests. She then described a leaked media memo instructing television camera operators to avoid all camera shots of the president in which any protestors would be visible. Fox, ABC, NBC, CBS etc. are working diligently to NOT accurately, truthfully portray George Bush's visit.
This is hardly shocking to any of us. We consider ourselves well aware of how corporate media and the government collaborate to deceive. But the most insidious and destructive pattern of deceit occurs in what is unseen and unspoken
deception by omission.
Media viewers will have no awareness of the "politically inconvenient" fact that over 50 percent of the English population is seething with animosity toward George Bush. In "media reality" there is no peace movement. Well, none worthy of media coverage. It is impossible for anyone who receives her information primarily from major media sources to perceive the global Peace movement as something to be taken seriously. The global peace movement, and Dennis Kucinich its' foremost champion in American politics, when presented at all, is deliberately presented to us in ways that are not intellectually, emotionally, morally nor even aesthetically compelling. Our society's educated, articulate, dedicated leaders and spokespersons for peace, social and economic justice and environmental protection are refused the type of coverage that would make their teachings understandable and compelling. I.e. electable. The voices of Amy Goodman, Noam Chomsky and Howard Zinn and Dennis Kucinich are excluded.
Media exclusion regarding politics is actually evidence of one's capability, one's power to communicate and inspire people.
We should see Dennis' exclusion as a badge of honor. Evidence of the threat he is to the existing regime. It is no accident that we perceive him as someone not to be taken seriously, someone who has no chance of winning. This unexplainable, irrational "feeling" that Dennis Kucinich is "not electable" is in fact a media triumph brought about using deception by omission, the same tactic being planned for Bush's visit to England.
Dennis Kucinich is THE leading political spokesperson for the movements for global peace, environmental protection, economic justice, social justice, living wages, universal health care and education. Any other democratic candidate would be more acceptable to corporate America than Dennis Kucinich. In comparison to Dennis all the other "electable" candidates pale in the scope of reform they offer. The business of global war, environmental destruction and economic terrorism will carry on undisturbed under their presidencies.
His exclusion from coverage by major media is precisely because he is supremely electable. Dennis Kucinich is the single greatest threat to George Bush. He is the one candidate who when he is heard appeals to the intelligence, compassion and goodness of America. There is no one else even in his league. Listen to him and judge for yourself. You cannot understand who this man is through the media. Get a video and watch him. He will stir your heart to believe again in the possibility that our nation can change
profoundly. You will feel the opportunity to make a difference in our government that had previously seemed impossible to you. You will want to get involved, and you would, except for one thing
you know he's "not electable".

This week, the Mayor of London stated that George W. Bush has done more to endanger this planet than any other human being. Like it or not, US policy does have a major effect on our entire planet. While the current US administration threatens the very survival of our species, the United States has a candidate running for the next Presidential election with a different view of America's role in the world.
Dennis Kucinich's worldview is unlike that of any political candidate America has seen. Based on spiritual principles, Dennis Kucinich's plan envisions creating a more peaceful, just and sustainable nation, working in harmony with our global community. Unfortunately, despite hundreds of thousands of grassroots supporters, American media has marginalized Dennis Kucinich's candidacy and his name is almost never mentioned.
Dennis Kucinich has been outspoken against the US invading Iraq, and the United State's current role as an occupying force. A four-term Democratic Congressman, he is the co-chair of the Progressive Caucus in the US Congress. He helped convince over 130 members of Congress to vote against authorizing the President the power to invade Iraq. He has introduced legislation to create a United States Department of Peace. He has stated that as President he will bring the United States back into the global community, honoring international agreements such as the Kyoto Treaty, the International Criminal Court, The Biodiversity Treaty, The Forest Protection Treaty, The Nuclear Non Proliferation Treaty, The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, The Antiballistic Missile Treaty, The Landmine Ban Treaty and many other international agreements.
If Americans knew about this candidate's world view, he would be elected as the next American President! Think of how that would change the course of world history ... But Americans aren't being given this choice, because they don't know about Dennis Kucinich. You can help wake up America.
Dennis Kucinich has a book called A Prayer for America. Two weeks ago it was
7 on Amazon.com. This week it is #17 on The New York Times Bestseller list. If his book were to become a #1 bestseller, he would finally get media attention. Americans would finally be able to hear about his hopes and dreams for our global community.
You can help awaken America right now by ordering Dennis Kucinich's book on Amazon.com and asking your network of friends to purchase it, too. The ranking is updated hourly.
