"When we send out love we might not see the effects, but they are far more stronger than any negative emotion. When you bring a candle in a dark room, the room gets lighted, when you bring a little darkness in a bright room - does it get dark? You see, the strength of the light is so much greater!"
- Ursula Aznar email@example.com>
"The concept of reaching a level of understanding wherein the so-called sage can accept the dualism of life and live in peace with himself and others, seems to be the perceived aim. And yet this kind of perception could not be less relevant to the liberation which brings with it the realisation that there is nothing and no-one that becomes liberated. The kind of teaching that is based on personal endeavour is a teaching of imprisonment simply because it reinforces the idea of the sage, the seeker and the sought. The very idea of there being "various approaches" to Advaita comes out of a basic ignorance of its essence. How is it possible to indirectly or directly "approach" that which already is? Who will make the "approach" and what is being "approached"? So what is the fundamental difference between the personal and the impersonal perception? The word Advaita means not two and expresses as nearly as possible in words the perception that all and everything is already only oneness, and that there is nothing else but that. When this is clearly seen by no-one, it completely exposes the idea of subject and object merely as an illusory concept held within the hypnotic dream of separation. Consequently, the idea that an apparent separate individual (subject) can choose to attain enlightenment (object) becomes completely irrelevant. It also becomes clear that all practices or effort to follow a path leading to a future goal continuously reinforces the sense of personal seeking and is a direct denial of abiding unicity."

A note to Jean - just another word of appreciation for the unbelievable work you are doing, and the amazing network you've established. As someone else put it so well, what would we do without you?
Once again, thank you!

Dear Matthias and Phil,
I read your lovely and moving accounts of your spaceship dreams and want to share my own experience. I had hoped to find my journals from that day in case there are details I don't recall. Last night I had some time to spend looking for them and was terribly disappointed that I couldn't find that particular journal. My computer has been extremely temperamental lately, and I finally had to give up trying to get it to cooperate...
In any case, it was about two years ago that I was shown something very similar. I was sleeping in a house high on a hill. The bed in which I was sleeping has an uncurtained large glass wall and sliding door a few feet from where my head was. It overlooks a large area with nothing but sky and rolling hills for miles. When I woke up and opened my eyes in the morning it was light, and I was told by my very trusted guide to close my eyes. Immediately I saw that the sky outside over that section of the earth was filled with space ships of Light just sitting, waiting peacefully. It felt very calm and loving. I recall opening my eyes and closing them again, wondering if I'd seen correctly. They stayed in my vision for as long as I wanted to look at them.
There have been a few occasions since when I have been aware of the presence of a cloaked ship in the area where I live in Marin County, Ca. One time in particular I was leaving a Border's store where I'd just had coffee with a friend and there were a lot of fast moving clouds in the sky. One cloud had a straight vertical rainbow (is that a contradiction in terms?) and a different quality from the others, and really grabbed my attention. It wasn't moving like the rest of them. I watched it for awhile and felt Love coming from it. It was difficult to take my attention from it, but I had to go do the rest of my errands. I kept looking back up at it, and about an hour later when I had finished my last shopping, I just sat in the parking lot where I was and watched it. It was still sitting in the same place emanating Love. It's pretty easy to see rainbows in clouds and to see layers of clouds moving across the sky at different speeds, and it's easy to doubt some of these things, but the feeling of Love was so strong and prevalent that I couldn't see it as anything but a ship of Light.
I haven't spoken of any of these experiences, and it never occurred to me to share the one with the ships in the blue sky. I did, however, assume that other people were probably being shown similar things.
I also, for a period of several months, was being made aware of nightly visits to ships. I had asked long ago for these visits and had clues that they were going on, but hadn't been in wakeful states when visiting these other dimensions. I've only shared this information in two other situations, and one of these people was also having visits. It's pretty interesting. I won't go into any details now about that, though.
I would be interested in learning of other people's experiences
Thank you for your sharing.

(Newspaper Report from the India Daily)
More evidence of Extra Terrestrial contacts with Indian Government and Military Juhi Singhal, Special Correspondent December 19, 2004
According to Subhra Jain, a freelance reporter in New Delhi, she bumped into a very senior Indian Military official in a nightclub in New Delhi. While talking what she came to know will make the rest of the world sit up all night. According to her, Extra Terrestrials have been visiting India and the rest of the world for thousands of years. In recent days most of the super powers have been formally contacted. India is no exception in recent days.
'They always contact through the ground radar stations of the military', she says. Indian Himalayas and Ladakh (China-India) border is where they first made their recent contact. They want to let India know the laws and regulation of the multidimensional Universe.
India is planning an un-manned moon and later an unmanned Mars expedition. India's premier Space Research Organization (ISRO) has been told "dos and don'ts".
Almost in the same week, a Flight Commodore who just retired from Indian Air Force, was requested in Bangalore, India, to provide a little talk on any topic to his youngest son's class mates in the school environment. Guess what he picked as the topic - yes you got it right - it was the underground landing base for UFO crafts in Ladakh. He first started by saying new technology is evolving and new achievements are being made in Aerospace. The students stared questioning him on different aspects of this new technologies and where this technology came from! Then the students started challenging him if he was really joking - at that moment he started providing vivid descriptions of the landing base.
Ladakh is a land like no other. Bounded by two of the world's mightiest mountain ranges, the Great Himalaya and the Karakoram, it lies athwart two other, the Ladakh range and the Zanskar range. Ladakh lies at altitudes ranging from about 9,000 feet (2750m) at Kargil to 25,170 feet (7,672m) at Saser Kangri in the Karakoram. Thus summer temperatures rarely exceed about 27 degree Celsius in the shade, while in winter they may plummet to minus 20 degree Celsius even in Leh. Surprisingly, though, the thin air makes the heat of the sun even more intense than at lower altitudes; it is said that only in Ladakh can a man sitting in the sun with his feet in the shade suffer from sunstroke and frostbite at the same time!
In Leh, Ladakh, according to Tsering Spalzang, a senior official, any paranormal activities are happening with the knowledge of the Indian Army. There are zones that Indian Army and Air Force block for security reasons. The Ladakh valley is heavily secured by the Indian Government. It is a sensitive area and no one is allowed in these sensitive areas - neither from Indian side nor from Chinese side. The terrain is such that it is impossible to find hidden underground structures under massive mountains - you are looking at core Himalayas.
The Petroleum Ministry when asked about recent high oil price, said that India is developing alternative energy sources with advanced technologies. When asked about, what kind of alternative technologies, the spokesperson hurried brought the press conference to a quick end by saying those are really classified information.
Indian Government has decided to spend enormous amount of money to develop the Kashmir and Ladakh road infrastructure. Even they plan to use the Foreign Exchange Reserves for this.
According to rumors in New Delhi, UFOs made formal contact with Indian Government. The Government was initially baffled without knowing how to react. Later things became quiet and it seems all understand that these Extra Terrestrials are friendly.
Kargil and Ladakh are hotspots in Kashmir India, which will probably see first Nuke exchange if that ever happens. Three countries face each other there with Nuke capabilities - India, China and Pakistan.
In 1999, Pakistan and India almost went head to head exchanging Nukes for a war on Kargil. Indian Army fought will full vigor against an enemy holding higher grounds. Pakistan planned to go all out on Kargil. India at that moment has no choice but to apply the nuclear arsenal.
At the insistence of US President Bill Clinton, Pakistan at the last moment backed out and the Nuke war was avoided.
From that time onwards, according local residents and Indian Army personnel, that area has seen the maximum numbers of UFOs and Extra Terrestrial presence.

Aloha Jean ~ May 2005 find you continuing your very powerful work! In the "predictions" department, I offer the following positive note;
In the next few years, humanity will see the end of five-thousand year old male-designed and dominated political and religious "control" structures as female energies finally achieve balance! And be aware that there may be earth-shaking lessons enroute to this moral goal of equal standing.
For certain, there is more to it than females moving into existing "manmade" positions of power. Be prepared for profound "systems" changes from personal to planetary - social, political, economic and spiritual. But by adding your positive Thoughts, Words and Actions for "balance", love, peace and harmony will prevail!
I suggest that an immediate step forward is with The CONSTITUTION of UNITED DIVERSITY http://groups.yahoo.com/group/uniteddiversity
Goodwill and Happy 2005 to you,
PLEASE TAKE A COUPLE MINUTES AND HELP OUR ANIMAL KINS, THE WOLVES, IN ALASKA NOW BEING MINDLESSLY SLAUGHTERED BY THE HUNDREDS FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN TO PLEASE AERIAL HUNTERS AND BRING CASH TO ALASKA. THIS IS A SPIRITUAL RESPONSIBILITY WE NEED TO ACCEPT.

Ingrid here [May I wish you abundant Peace & Joy throughout this Season of Light.
My friend Sananjaleen June Hughes (email@example.com http://www.1spirit.com/sananda 540 364 1282) asked me to forward the message below which I e-mailed this to all on our list yesterday morning.
Sananjaleen asked for guidance and was given to understand: The voices of wolves and dolphins are the same and have the same purpose. They are able to call upon the ships of light. Extinguish both and people will be without hope.
Indeed, this would be a terrible darkness. I have always known birds to represent hope. People without hope are easily controlled
We still have a choice in not manifesting Atlantis or Maldek and avoid repeating this consciousness. If we dont, it will be far more powerful than it was before as 2 different existences. This time round it would manifest as one huge dark mass etc. etc. On another thought: are these animals being used to pay for indiscretions committed by those in power? Canned horsemeat? Yet, the loss is so much greater in the spiritual sense. I would appreciate it if you could share our message with your list.
A horrid picture awoke me this morning.
A picture in which I was walking through the blood stained snow in Alaska. Wolves howling from every corner and the wind carrying their voices way off into the ethers. Strangely though, the body of the wolves were not there . Here and there a wolf would appear and sniff the spot , raise his head to begin his song of loss and pain. The chorus of mournful howling will continue to echo across the Alaskan landscape for many months. Then I found myself behind a truck loaded with horses and burros- a lot of laughter coming from men priding themselves
. Words fail me to describe the injuries, the pain and fear of the animals. I awoke feeling great rage in my whole being. ... How many barbaric deeds is humanity capable of? How much more before we wake up? Will we wake up at all? A voice inside my head said: breathe, breathe, inhale golden fire
. It is all part of the chain of destructiveness
Every dark deed creates darkness . We cannot survive in darkness. In energy terms
each thought creates energy and each time a defenseless individual, be it animal or human dies within the state of fear, a huge cloud of the darkest and densest energy is created. In normal circumstances a spiritual person is called to ease a dying individuals fear of making their transition etc. The last thoughts are vital - they liberate or are additional building blocks to reinforce the atmosphere of a self-serving human consciousness. The difference is made when the individual connects with God because this link creates an elevated energy and has enough spark to lift and transform all lesser thought creations. In general our wild or farm animals and most of our pets are not given this luxury.
Thus, let us call on the Angels of each suffering species and ask that their pain be removed, their sacrifice in the gift of their life invoke the highest outcome in the service of Gods Divine Plan of Earth.
And then let us place the prayer in action and see how you can help in a physical way. The energy of a prayer placed into action, anchors a mighty powerful fire spark . Its golden energy connects with all sentient life, thus ignites teamwork on all levels and transformation in the energy world that effects the physical can begin.
This has been difficult for me to write because it is such an upsetting matter. A friend once said to me always ask yourself : Is this serving my highest good? Well, it is because
we are here this time round to serve All of Gods Creation
animal, vegetal and mineral. To show true concern not only in thought and prayer but also in action. Thus, we can become more and more flexible while at the same time we retain our focus on each moment and we express a naturalSpirituality of Heart.
Please, I beg you Help in the way you know you can!
World Peace Healing Gardens & Nature Retreat
PS: I have often expressed
oh no, I cannot cope with this right now
this is too much and this is not where my focus is
this is not of my reality. When questioning myself re justification
well, while keeping focus on my reality, its energy will help all those causes too. We cannot limit the outreach. Spiritual complacency on my part?
Thus, I understand if you choose the delete button but for those of you who choose to pray and action, objecting by adding their voice to the list etc. this creates an energy that is truly without limitations in outreach and transformation.

Subject: Alaska's Secret Wolf Slaughter
The secret slaughter of wolves from airplanes in Alaska is underway - the greatest killing spree since the 1950's.
I say secret because the Board of Game and Governor Frank Murkowski don't want the media to spotlight the carnage. They know that last time the national media covered such wolf atrocities, public outrage caused the barbaric practices to stop.
That's our challenge. Getting the story on national television news shows and on the front page of newspapers.
Thanks to the financial support of caring people like you, we've obtained actual footage and produced a powerful flash video depicting the horror of aerial gunning. We've placed a strong warning to potential viewers because it graphically shows wolves being killed from airplanes.
See this flash video at http://websrvr60ny.audiovideoweb.com/ny60web16514/index.html
In the next 10 days, we plan an intensive effort to distribute this flash video to the media, grassroots activists and the public.
I hope we can count on your important help once again.
First, send an email to the major network news shows that you watch. Urge them to send a reporter to Alaska to cover the planned killing of up to 900 wolves from airplanes. (To send an email see the list of links below).
Second, make whatever contribution you can to help us expand our media, grassroots and legal efforts to stop the aerial assault on wolves. Our goal is to raise $50,000 over the next 72 hours.
Thanks for caring,
P.S. Please take a moment to send an email to the major news networks urging them to cover the planned killing of 900 wolves in Alaska. We need to generate as many emails as possible to get their attention. Thank you.

Below is a description of the expanded form of Core Groups I am beginning as a foundation for community. This description grew out of the previous two articles I recently sent.
Any comments you might have would always be appreciated. I'm putting this out there because it seems to me many of us are in some kind of dance with each other, in the work that we are doing and what our higher intentions are. Who knows what will lead to what possibilities.
With love and gratitude, especially at this sacred time of year,

Core Groups: Building Evolving Social Structures
By Jane Ilene Cohen
The challenge we have before us at this time in human history is how to really come together with each other, beginning with our closest social community. We all are living within a global, as well as more local, social fabric that holds in place an experience of reality. This effects how we perceive our power, safety, survival, well-being, and in what ways we are in relationship with each other. Much of the social environment we are effected by is not by conscious choice, and its bottommost survival foundation is fear and force-based. A fear and force-based paradigm of reality by definition separates us from each other, and therefore creates conflict, as is being demonstrated in much of our global and more immediate world. Coming together, on the other hand, inherently contains the resources we are looking for. The difference between being separate from each other, and coming together with each other, is the difference between avoiding the present moment and coming into it.
As much as we are drawn toward intimacy with each other, we are also repelled by it, because if the coming together is not in the context of transformation, each person has to compromise and limit themselves in some form. Real coming together requires radical and ongoing transformation. It is a highly evolutionary process. This is the purpose of Core Groups as I'm forming them.
In order for people to come together in genuine intimacy without truncating ourselves in any way, it is essential to bring out into the open our subjective experience what we feel, what we want, what matters to us, how we are responding to each other. In other words, it is necessary to open up emotional truth. These desires and responses, whether clear expressions or distorted by unhealed issues, are what they are. This living material cannot be controlled or made to be something it is not. It is the objective fact of our subjective experience. It is therefore the portal that brings us into the here-and-now, which accesses Universal or Divine consciousness and intention. It is where things can be untangled so that life works. The group's purpose is to get ourselves in the position and experience of accessing this level of consciousness.
People are generally afraid to find out what is really true about themselves, and in relation to each other, because we're afraid it will lead to our lives and relationships not working. The opposite is true. It's the avoidance, and therefore the distortion of what we deeply desire and what matters to us, that causes us to go in directions that cause us and others harm, and divides us from a deeply satisfying, meaningful, congruent and empowered life. These groups are demonstrations of the principle that when we get down to the actual truth, beyond the unhealed issues, we find that whatever is really true between us and each other person, works.
To a significant degree our passionate desires toward what is the most meaningful to us are diverted around our defense systems, social taboos, closed channels to possibilities, limited connections with each other. The group process brings to consciousness, out into the open, the distorted perceptions of these unhealed issues, when they are triggered in interaction. The Core Group forms the social context upholding an un-triggered experience of reality, supported by the facilitator. Transformation occurs when reality experience is juxtaposed with the distorted perception of reality, within the context of the group. The group is holding the consciousness of a safety net for the irrational emotions to release as the consciousness shifts to allow this new reality in. This creates an extraordinary bond between people going through this experience.
In these Groups we are not just focusing on individuals' unhealed issues, but the distorted social context we are living in. For example, people often have responses to each other or to life, beginning in childhood, that don't fit into the social model of what is acceptable. And then we form unhealed issues based on this conflict, which are generally some form of deciding that life is not meant to work. In the group context of exploring what is really true between people in terms of intentions, desires, soul purpose, etc. when we explore beyond the unhealed issues that hold in place the dysfunctional social model, the group experience can shift into a more conscious, functional, satisfying and true social fabric and survival system.
These Core Groups are about creating whatever your heart's desire is, personally and in the world, whether it's collectively as a group, or in different configurations within the group where there is alignment. Accessing intentions and desires on progressively deeper levels charts courses deep into the unknown, creating possibilities never before dreamed of. The deeper we go, more questions and answers are revealed, leading us into the heart of our God-selves in all of our magnificence and power. It puts us in the context in which life works, and resources and solutions open up.
These groups are about creating a reality framework that is a completely positive, empowered, solid knowing of the beneficence of the universe. The intention of these groups is to create a social fabric that shifts our bottommost survival and well-being paradigm to one in which the Divine leads. It is about getting ourselves into the position where we are creating from a higher source. It is a melding of human and Divine intentions, bringing the human experience, with all of its responses and desires, into a process that accesses the Divine. It is using the human experience as a portal into the Divine experience, by bringing it into the present moment. Everything when brought into the present moment leads to the Divine.
This group is about getting ourselves into the position where we can truly come together, bringing in our gifts, our pieces of the puzzle. When we put our most powerful pieces of the puzzle together, we access huge power. And with that aligned vibration, we create a powerful energy vortex.

Subject: Thanks and thoughts
Date: 20 Dec 2004
I hope you are well. I would like to start by letting you know how much i appreciate your emails. I have been receiving them for quite a while now and have meant to send my thanks to you for quite some time. The service you provide really is amazing and invaluable to me and I'm sure many others like me. It is a HUGE help to be receiving such encouraging information at such an exciting time.
I am aware that I have not been participating as much as I should have been up to this point, but hopefully a move I have planned very soon will help me to fulfill my potential and help further our progress.
I don't mean to take up too much of your time as I can only begin to imagine how busy you must be by the amazing dedication I see you put into your emails, but I would like to share a few things with you and also ask for your thoughts on a couple of things.
I am not very good at writing like this, so think it best if I just keep to basically pointing out what I am trying to say.
I live in England and have recently been amazed by the people I have met and their understanding of the emerging global consciousness. There really are a lot of people aware of what is going on and trying to make a difference, but I think many are possibly finding it hard to see what they can do to get involved. I'm sure though that they will be guided to what they seek, and I think that I may be meant to do something to help this.
I am 21 and often go to 'raves' in this country and in Europe. There are a lot of young people at these gatherings who have an interest in the emerging global consciousness, Gaia etc etc but I feel that there is a lack of information available at the parties. Some of the large internationally organised parties have speakers on these subjects, but this is not usually so at the local ones. There have been up to 20,000 people turning up at the raves, and I think that it would be great to have information for them available.
I remember when I first went to one of these parties that I met some amazing people, but was quite disappointed at the lack of information and discussion available. I think that they could serve as hubs for this information to be introduced to people and shared. I believe this is what they are meant to be for but are lacking.
I really am finding it hard to write down my ideas, but hope you are getting what I am trying to say! Do you have any thoughts on a kind of booklet of information that could be distributed to people? Something that outlines ideas and can suggest further reading on the subject? Do you know if anything exists already that I could get hold of? I would like to make something myself but don't feel that I have the literary skills needed.
I have been guided a lot recently through synchronicities and dreams which I am thankful for, and am looking at ways myself of living a better life and living as one with Gaia. My brother and his girlfriend had a baby yesterday and seeing her made me realise how important our mission is and that we must remember it and realise it as much as we can. Seeing her also made me think of what things will be like when she is my age, which made me very excited but also made me realise how much work there is to be done and how we must strive to do the best we can at all times.
I hope that I have managed to put across what I am trying to say, and at the very least hope that this email serves as a message of thanks to you. If you do have any thoughts or ideas on getting information out to young people who i am sure already have a strong interest in this, i would be very grateful to hear them.
Love and Light to you
AND MY REPLY WAS:
Thank you very much for your words of appreciation and for sharing with me your perception about a growing interest on the part of young people in the emerging global Gaian awareness, a phenomenon that bodes well for humanity and is a sure sign of the fast expanding spiritual awakening now unfolding all around the world.
If I had time I would be very happy to put together the kind of information that would help you offer a detailed and accurate overview of the basic understandings from which an individual soul involved in the rave scene could find useful to guide his/her own awakening. But my sense is that this is perhaps in part your own mission to put this together based on your natural sensitivity as to how one can best approach young people of your age and culture with spiritual material best adapted to what you would like to achieve. So I encourage you to follow your guiding passion in this if you indeed feel prompted from within to manifest the tool you wish now to have. Of course, part of your own current awareness has certainly been nurtured by what you've found in my compilations. So it may be a good starting point to recommend those with access to Internet to make time to explore all that is available at the Earth Rainbow Network website (over 15,000 pages of material accrued over a 6 year period) and if interested to also subscribe to this list through this site.
Also since I'm including your email and this reply in today's compilation, it is likely others from this vast community of wise souls will contact you at email@example.com> with suggestions for material that you may deem appropriate for your stated purpose.
Finally I'm including below a compilation done 11 years ago by a good friend of mine, Palden Jenkins firstname.lastname@example.org> in Glastonbury, UK, based of a book I've been attracted to look into recently, The Only Planet of Choice, whose origin and content is explained at http://www.palden.co.uk/palden/p2-topc1.html
Hoping this will be useful to you ;-)
Love and Light to you and all your relations
Quotes from the Council of Nine
Drawn from the book The Only Planet of Choice,
compiled by Palden Jenkins, Gateway Books, 1993.
This is a collection of key statements from the Council of Nine, extracted from the first edition of The Only Planet of Choice. I did not write these I edited them and compiled them into a book, with commentaries by me. The Council of Nine is a circle of highly-evolved beings living, in one sense, at the centre of the universe, though in another sense outside time and space. Their responsibility is to maintain balance throughout the universe. They have a special relationship with planet Earth because of the exceptional nature of free will available to beings of planet Earth. They communicate through their spokesperson Tom (anciently known as Atum), transceived by Phyllis Schlemmer, a distinguished deep-trance channel.
+ There are different main points of attention we would wish to have you communicate in revelation to humankind:
* there is no aloneness in your planet Earth there are other worlds to help you and view you;
* you have no death, even though humankind creates great wars, for in these methods they control humankind by attempting to prevent them from fulfilling their lives;
* planet Earth's importance lies in the balancing of the spiritual with the physical;
* planet Earth is unique of all planets in the entire universe, and is the most beautiful of variety, and was created to be a paradise;
* humans, in their illusory understanding, reincarnate over and over, which stops the progress of the universe;
* within all of the universe there are other worlds of existence of great beauty, sun, colour, joy also, but planet Earth is the only planet of true choice;
* all other physical existences are a collective consciousness whether it is for forwardness or for the capturing of souls it is a total collective consciousness;
* for freedom of choice, humankind must practice great responsibility, in order for the universe to expand;
* those that oppose keep planet Earth in its bondage by weakening the will of humankind, and if you bring the issue to humankind they have choice at all times.
+ You are a creator.
+ It is the love from this planet that generates the energy that feeds God.
+ The form of control that exists on planet Earth does not exist on other planets. This is the only planet which has created a bottleneck [in the passing through of souls].
+ When critical mass begins in humankind, when enough of your souls are becoming free, then the space-vehicle of planet Earth moves into its evolutionary fulfilment.
+ People must learn to love themselves, and the only way they may love themselves is never to do what they will dislike themselves for.
+ This is a time of awakening. It is a time to understand that within the self people hold the key for bringing planet Earth to its fulfilment, that free-will is never interfered with, and that the destruction of planet Earth is not necessary.
+ Do not fall into the trap of believing that planet Earth will be destroyed.
+ What will come to be understood is the power of thought and the energy of love.
+ Behave only in a manner that you may love yourself for; behave only in a manner in which you would wish another to do toward you; do no action, thought or thing that you, in your soul and consciousness, cannot have self-respect for. When that begins, all will change.
+ Those that exist on planet Earth have existed on other planets, and when their birth is brought to planet Earth, those souls must develop balance between physicalness and cosmos.
+ When your planet Earth has brought itself into balance through service, when it is evolved to a higher vibration, then the population explosion will also diminish, for negative energies will not then be in a form where they may then overpower a normal balance of energies.
+ The most important matter is for each individual upon your planet, no matter which division they are in, to understand that they are part of a whole and they also make a difference. If you take a drop of water and make enough drops of water you soon have a collection of a pond. That pond can then breed life when it is in togetherness.
+ Humankind has a responsibility not only for this planet Earth, but for the universe. Planet Earth is part of the universe, and the universe needs it to survive.
+ This is a time when people must now take control.
+ There are upheavals in humankind, and upheavals in the physical aspect of planet Earth, with its eruptions and corruptions. The entity of planet Earth is attempting to purify and cleanse itself.
+ All of you and all of us make God. God never fails. With God all is possible. Love is God. It is love that creates the energy that feeds God and makes God.
+ Even though you live upon a physical planet and the densest of all planets in the universe, remember that all souls may be saved. Remember forgiveness!
+ The purpose of soul-existence and the purpose of their living is to return to whence they came. Each soul in the whole universe came directly from the true Creator, so each soul is imbued with this energy.
+ If you were to tell humankind the universe is a game, they would not understand!
+ When the souls on Earth have recognised their reality and have understood, they can then be released, and they can provide teachings and understandings for others in other galaxies and solar systems in the universe.
+ Those that come to benefit planet Earth come from other galaxies, not from within your galaxy.
+ There are civilisations of different dimensions, different intelligence, different evolving, that are working with the Twenty-Four [universal] civilisations. There are those within your galaxy that are in service to those that are attempting to salvage the planet Earth, but they are not the primaries.
+ We wish to reassure you that those that exist on planet Earth will find that those visitors [from other planets] that do not have what you call beauty will have within them the essence of beauty. There will be many appearances. There are beings that mean humankind no harm, but have an interest in saving planet Earth. For in truth, if there are no other civilisations to help planet Earth, it will bring destruction to itself.
+ All the souls that exist in the universe have had, at one time or another, the necessity to manifest on the physical planet Earth, for the lessons to be learned [there].
+ The members of the Council of Nine are not, and never have been, in physical form. There are the twenty four civilisations that are in a subtle kind of physical form, and then there are what we could call the helper civilisations that are in denser physicalness than the Twenty-Four. The Twenty-Four civilisations think collectively as one, within their civilisation.
+ In truth the Council and the Twenty-Four developed and created what was necessary on planet Earth in order for humanity to live on it, when it was ready. We continue to work with this, but our wish is that you humans will take responsibility for your own planet. If it continues in the manner which it is now, around or after your year 2000 planet Earth will no longer be able to exist as a home for humans. Also the civilisations are attempting to cleanse it and to bring it back into balance using their technology, not only for the saving of planet Earth, but also because planet Earth is under the guidance of the civilisations that initially colonised it it is thus partly their responsibility. It is inevitable that at some time there will be a visitation to your planet Earth. We would wish that it may come with arms opened for greeting.
+ As you have many millions of plants and many millions of species of animals on your planet, also in the universe there are many different kinds of beings.
+ Our primary concern is with the Earth because it is important to raise its level, since it is holding back some of the evolution of the universe.
+ What you see now is the thrashing of the tail of negativity that knows it is on its way out, bringing forth cultism and fanaticism. There would be intervention if there were any people that would attempt total destruction. Planet Earth must survive. It is your energy that helps it to survive.
+ We will not permit the destruction of planet Earth, but humankind must begin to help itself and make decisions based on its survival.
+ Only by raising the level of consciousness of this planet, perfecting the love and the core that is inside each human, can we then go on and perfect other planets in all the galaxies. We are going to raise the level of this planet with your help, which will make this a lighter planet. The energy then coming from this planet will be sent into the universe and will help raise the level of consciousness of other planets. When all beings on planet Earth are in complete harmony with self and with others and have removed self from self, and when your planet is in a higher elevation, it will become the leading civilisation of the Twenty-Four. It dropped from the Twenty-Four to a lower state of being because of its inadequacy of soul.
+ There is a new kind of children [amongst you]. These new beings that are coming and being born on your planet have 'sonars' in them to help them in their service.
+ You must remember that all of you and all of us have what you call the Christ within us. The Christ will be a collective consciousness.
+ Your motivation is your protection, always.
+ The spirit has no rules or laws set upon it to guide it, yet without them it would be as a ship at sea without a rudder.
+ The temptation of the others [opposing forces or 'Satan'] to feed egos, to control individuals, is the most serious problem on your planet. It is the one thing that will destroy. It is the craving for power and the craving for control. The craving is so strong that when it cannot be fulfilled one way, they will find another. The opposition is the opposite of life, the anathema of life.
+ We are attempting to bring what is negative and what is positive into balance. It is necessary to have both to make a perfect whole. But the opposite pole to us, what you call 'Satan', wishes not to bring it into balance, for if by bringing it into balance a soul becomes perfected and may live in freedom, 'Satan' cannot live.
+ Much truth has been destroyed to keep the masses in control. People, organisations of government and religion do not suppress any manner of thing unless it is a threat to them, or unless it is truth.
+ When you come into knowledge, wisdom and truth, when all that is in the universe is beginning to be revealed, then those that desire to control planet Earth, in order to control the universe, begin to create great difficulty for you.
+ There are those that would like to remove your awareness and your knowledge. Respect them, do not laugh at them, but be firm in your faith, and they cannot deter you nor harm you. If they create difficulty for you, then, with your mind, see yourself from the ground to your head being swept with our love, our light and our joy in you. Do not hesitate to ask for help. Do not proudly do all by yourself.
+ You are not as inadequate as you would like to believe. We have begun a new time in your land and your universe, a time for you to remove the string that attaches you to the past time in the physical, and to doubt.
+ The One Who Fell utilises and feeds upon those energies of neglect, of emotional distortion and the weaknesses of humankind, but also upon their strengths when those strengths are not protected.
+ If the souls on Earth were more evolved now, it would be considered paradise. This planet Earth may be a paradise when the density is removed.
+ It is an illusion that you humans are equal or superior to the Creator and Creation, and the reality you [usually] take to be real is illusion. Compassion is now a critical element of development. Your mind brings you not what you want it brings you what you are. You believe you are in control but you are always controlled. You believe that you have free will and the truth is that you do, but when you understand you have free will, totally and completely, then you give up that free will.
+ There will be not one but a collection of beings that will raise the level of consciousness of this planet. It is very important that you do not deify us. It is very important that you understand that God is in each and every one of you, and that God is love, and is the love that creates the one God. Those that come and say they are the messiah are not the true messiah. When they call themselves masters, they are not masters.
+ There is not a death in the world that had no consequence.
+ Know this, that energies of change may spread with great rapidity. As you have a media, a form of communication, it would only of necessity be a matter of days or weeks in transformation, if the energies charged into it were the highest. Your planet Earth is on a verge of transformation into a vehicle of lightness, and it is possible in a short period of time for that to come to pass.
+ Energies of thought-forms are more devastating than nuclear warheads, for in your time now and in your future time energies are being refined, and thought is the controlling factor.
+ It is the first time upon your planet Earth that it has been populated by so many, that there has been a form of communication in which all know information instantaneously, and it is the first time for generations that there are so many beings encapsulated in negative thinking but also the first time that there are so many who exist in service to planet Earth, working in diligence to stop destruction and to permit planet Earth's evolution as it could have been in the past.
+ Only people can change people [that is, 'cosmic' beings cannot].
+ There are differences in all nations, and it is that mosaic that creates your planet Earth. In each nation there must be understanding without condemnation of others that is an important achievement to make.
+ The destruction of one nation is in reality the destruction of all others and the beginning of all destruction the destruction of vital elements upon your planet affects all.
+ It is now time to understand that you must not flagellate yourself when you make an error, but move beyond it, and remove and peel off that shell and let another light of yourself come through.
+ Believing that darkness rules you is an escape from responsibility.
+ Do you understand that if awakening comes in its own time there will be total destruction, and if it comes with acceleration then the world can be saved?
+ All things invented and brought into existence have value if applied and modified properly.
+ We understand that planet Earth in its density, in its stick-to-ness of the past and in the negative energies of humankind, has elements within that bonds it, binds it and creates areas that are difficult to release. But when we say to you of purity of motive and of heart, we expect not saintliness, for that is not useful. To be over-perfected is also to be out of balance, for you live in a physical world. We mean only that your motivation be purely for the betterment of humankind.
+ It is a time of great change and forwardness and preparation. The manifestation of your love and purpose and energy for planet Earth is as a great magnification that spreads outward and touches all. You have upon your planet five billion. Each one makes a difference.
+ Humankind has been locked up in the need for struggle. When it is understood that when there is freedom from want, freedom of time, imagine all that exists on your planet that billions have not yet experienced! You will have the experience of joy of being. What you call 'peak experience' will be a way of life. Just begin, and the rest will come.
+ When resolution is brought into being, then other pockets of dissension will also be in resolution.
+ In each of your cultures, what is important is to understand that each of you is a complete unit, containing all that is contained within the universe, and that each of you has the ability to change the necessary arenas to bring planet Earth out of darkness into its rightful place. In your culture you believe humbleness to be humility it is time to understand that it is now permitted to accept yourself.
+ Knowledge is not wisdom. Wisdom comes from within and cannot be taught, and the person that is wise does not say they are wise. One who is wise detaches, steps back, observes, and knows when to go forward without the ego of exploitation.
+ God could not have survived without being able to laugh at himself!
+ The difficulty is that you humans do not enjoy the thought that you can be part of each other.
+ Humankind was not created for suffering. Humankind was not created for disease or destruction. Humankind was created for the joy and glory of the Creator, who in truth is humankind.
+ Each soul in the universe must live upon planet Earth at least once, to experience the balance between physical and spiritual. Each being exists upon planet Earth, and each is a total individuality, containing the energy of a living star. It is the light of your soul. This is a path of happiness, for when you find the essence within yourself, then fear, which creates conflict, cannot completely control you.
+ This is your planet, and you have not come here in error.
+ It is important that you do not give your free will away you do it when you permit yourself to lose control of yourself, whether it be with the ingestion of addictive substances, or in anger, or other things. You are always responsible that cannot be removed.
+ The singular most important word in your vocabulary is kindness.
+ Permit your soul to show you the way.
+ Forgiveness comes from you when there is true recognition of what has happened.
+ There is but one law of perfection. There are no complexities it is a very simple law: treat each and every soul, every animal and every plant as you would wish them to treat you.
+ If someone or something hurts you, it is your ego that hurts you.
+ There is not one that is better than the other. Amongst all that exist on planet Earth there is none which is in truth more superior or less equal.
+ All people have feelings, and feel everything as much as others, even if they seem not to.
+ Neither a man nor a woman can set a rule and say "This is the way it has to be".
+ Don't take on anything or anyone you know you do not have the strength to pull away from.
+ Your mind can bring things into existence, if it has the knowledge of how to do this, but it can also unconsciously bring into existence many things that you do not have the desire to have.
+ If there were thirty-six with one mind, focused together, then the entire world, even the universe may be changed. If there be twelve on the planet Earth with one mind, with the power of concentration, there is nothing that cannot be accomplished.
+ Enlightenment is what you are. Enlightenment is constant reaching, constant searching, constant consideration of whatever needs to be removed or modified or purified, but with total acceptance of yourself. Also acceptance that, since you are part of divinity, anything you desire you may accomplish if it is for the betterment of the universe. To have understanding that you are responsible for a portion of the universe, to have understanding that it is your love that has created us, that sustains us and that feeds us this is enlightenment. To have mastered all of the physical, it is necessary to master all of the physical with involvement, not with detachment from those that suffer.
+ There is the greatest power in clear thought. It is as close to supreme power that a soul on a human level may have.
+ When you are in a state of meditation your power is tenfold.
+ You are not an island alone you are part of a whole.
+ All the souls that have existed and now exist at this time, and those that are in the spirit world surrounding this Earth, have had their time. It is their selfishness, it is their egos, their self-pity, their physical desires that they refuse to relinquish. If we would permit this, this planet would plunge into darkness and it would take the greatest portion of the universe with it. We have given this planet more than sufficient time. In truth we have given to this planet and those that exist upon it more time than we have given the souls on other planets. We cannot give more time. The time that we have given has not been used in a productive manner, but to feed egos again.
+ It is not possible for any people on planet Earth to escape responsibility for planet Earth, in order to do what they say they must do. It is not possible for them to be of any service if they look after their own interests only. It is only when there is a denial of the existence of the spirit that you may then walk away from your responsibility.
+ People on your planet do say they would make a commitment to save this planet, but few want to give up themselves or to lose their individuality.
+ Out of every hundred people that we choose, only two come through. This is very unfortunate.
+ People expect us to perform miracles for them. We can only do so much. We need your physical energy and your minds on your planet.
+ Your commitment, if it is true commitment, will bring the song of the universe within you. It will cause you to walk in a light of love and to walk in lightness.
+ You are not special, though in truth you are. But this does not remove responsibility from you or give you special accounts in the physical world. There is no way that you can help others if you do not understand the joys, fears, sadness, despairs, loves and angers of the peoples that exist in the physical world.
+ When one sets oneself up as a teacher they set themselves apart.
+ What is past is past, and what is coming in the future does not make a difference at this moment. It is this moment in time which makes the difference. Each moment is a rebirth.
+ When humankind evolves and planet Earth is able to fulfil all that it was created for, then you release all the other civilisations in the universe, for them also to be in choice. Do you understand the importance of this?
+ Those of you who have visualised acceleration have begun the acceleration. What you must completely and totally understand is your power. When you negate your power, your ability to bring change, then you negate the universe and who you are and you negate us. So what has begun is the dedication to begin the process, so it is like a giant cannon that shoots out its bolt, and it is going in great rapidity. Now we do not wish it to fall to Earth too quickly. But it must continue.
Based on a prayer from the book The Only Planet of Choice (Gateway Books, 1993),
with comments by Palden Jenkins.
Toms Prayer appears in the book The Only Planet of Choice, by Phyllis Schlemmer, published by Gateway Books, 1993. The prayer was offered by Tom (known in ancient history as Atum), the spokesbeing for the Council of Nine. This is a circle of exceptionally insightful cosmic beings who work with large-scale universal issues in cooperation with high-level ET civilisations though they are not themselves ETs. They have given some explanations of who they are, yet our concepts cannot really encompass the full situation. Nevertheless, their intelligence and understanding is profound. They have a special interest in events on planet Earth and they have long been involved in our history. This article, while primarily commenting on the meaning of Toms Prayer, nevertheless outlines some of the key points which the Nine have shared with us in their book. I was the compiler of the first edition of the book, yet these interpretations are my own I am not a spokesperson for them. I encourage you to contemplate the content and meaning of the prayer and to refer to the book itself and form your own conclusions.
The prayer itself goes as follows. It is used by many people in connection with meditation work in alignment with the Nine. It was suggested by the Nine in recognition of our human need to focus on thoughts and images in prayer and meditation. After presenting it, I shall review each line one by one.
