Rising Phoenix Series #39: The Rising Tide of Light and Love
Once again, the preparation of this 47 page compilation has involved many hours of work, but rest assured, I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm very grateful for the numerous feedbacks received and take it that they are representing fairly well the views of most people. Like all of you the time I can spend at the computer to sift through all that comes my way is limited and is going to be even more limited with all the summertime tasks I have to attend to here, not to mention the book translation I'm currently working on - "Matthew, Tell Me About Heaven" by Suzanne Ward, to come out in French bookstores in Quebec, France, Belgium and Switzerland sometimes in August or September through Ariane Editions.
So as I mentioned earlier, for all those who like me, need a respite from too much computer reading, it is happening very soon and should last until next September. It will even happen that some weeks you'll receive nothing from me.
But for now here is some quite interesting material for your consideration ;-)
Light and Love to all of you!

"But now there is a significant shift. This Cosmic Energy is now impacting directly and potently upon the physical level. The time is come to transform the thought-forms for solution into actuality upon the plane of Earth. All the causes of humanitys many strifes are now directly irradiated with divine light. This is not an easy process, as all that which is ugly and has over the ages been festering and remained hidden, must now be lifted up to the surface to be seen clearly for what it is. Only when the ugliness, corruption, selfishness and separativeness has been brought to the surface and seen for what it is, will humanity be able to release it forever and thus make right choice and enter freely into the new."
- David Keane, taken from "The Transition Years of Magic and Wonder" below
"Even though the knowledge of the heart is objective and rational, the language of the heart is subjective. The kind of subjectivity that goes beyond the rational but never denies it. Once the spiritual connection is made through love, you receive an inner knowing about our connection with each other and our world. There is a commonality to this knowledge, it almost like a blanket of truth is being spread across humankind, tucking us in for a better tomorrow and a better world. Realizing our connection will heal ourworld. We will be able to see, feel, and help manifest the vision of spirit, the dream of God."

"Beloveds, the day will come when you will love all of Creation with the same impartial and fair love that your Creator has for you. You will look upon those who are lost and wandering in darkness with the same love you hold for family members dear to you."

Subject: Feedback Re: The Big Scoop Series #1: The Cream of The Crop
Date: 18 Apr 2005
Dear Jean, I read all your compilations, of course they are distressing, and I often want to write to you and comment, thinking that you would be inundated with comments, I don't. Now after you making the comment, that you do not hear from anyone, I feel obliged to say something.
I am far more interested in the Truth than what I hear on general television and newspaper, chronic media hype, always skirting the Truth. You provide us with the most fantastic insight into what is truly happening in the world, from highly respected and truthful reporters. I find most of it unbearably painful, and generally sit in front of the computer, speechless, with a knotted gut, and tears streaming down my face, in utter despair, and simply feel powerless, and wish I could do something simple to help. I guess there are probably thousands of us who read your compilations and feel the same way.
At this precise moment here in Australia, we are all sitting in horror as one of our own, sits in a dreadful jail in Bali, her name is Schapelle Corby. She has endured 6 months in jail, and her trial is continuing, and it is not a fair trial. On arrival in Denpasar for a holiday, she was found to be carrying 4 kgs of marijuana in her boogie board bag, and she was astonished to be arrested for this and thrown in jail. She denies vehemently that this marijuana was hers, and most Australian's believe her. But the Balinese courts do not have a justice system like ours, so she is simply guilty by possession. There are criminals here in Australia, who know how it got there, but this lady, could be in front of the firing squad or even worse, condemned to life imprisonment in a squalid jail. I cannot bear that this is happening to her, and I know it is happening all around the world, devastating stories, but I just wanted to let you know, that I am one of your readers, that doesn't comment, and there are certainly many more of us who just sit stunned and helpless. Psychically, it has a powerful effect, and though I can feel unwell at the horror, I am still grateful for somebody like you Jean who has sacrificed most of your free time, to share the Truth with us. I love the meditation focus, as they always give me much hope for the essential goodness of the majority, and I sit in my garden, with all it's beauty and sense sometimes the feeling, in my deeper consciousness that "all is fundamentally well." I hope that feeling comes to fruition. Thank you Jean.
AND MY REPLY WAS...
Thanks a LOT Beverley for this powerful feedback.
I'm sure your experience is in many ways similar to what many other people go through when reading some of the stories I network.
I must say however that I'm a bit disturbed to realize it has such a profound heart-wrenching effect upon you and I'm sorry to read that. I do often likewise get moved by the information I read and network, and also experience on occasions similar feelings, which is only natural and human, for when one develops compassion for our brothers and sisters, it is easy to feel what it would be if we were in their place. And yet despite such passing moments of sorrow, horror and/or outrage, there always remain close to the surface of my consciousness a steady, unaffected sense of trust that, as you put it, "all is fundamentally well".
In centuries past, and even less than 30 years ago, most people were living in their own local bubble or paradigm, in most cases blissfully unaware of the sufferings of others around the world in faraway places. Their ignorance about the terrible human tragedies unfolding elsewhere were shielding them from having to face the emotional trauma that may come with the knowledge of such tribulations being experienced by other human beings.
Nowadays with 24 hours news channels and a continuous media frenzy that feeds on some of the violence and tragedies endured by others and, for those like us with access to Internet-circulated news, with the ease through which a whole range of previously undisclosed, critical reporting is now available about the deep corruption and torments inflicted upon fellow travellers on and residents of this living planet, the challenge of dealing almost non-stop with all this knowledge can quickly become overwhelming, that is, unless one has developed a solid grasp on the underlying universal law of karmically-driven causes and effects being played out for the ultimate benefit of all parties involved in these though learning experiences.
However, the immediacy and wide availability of all this information can also have positive effects. Take for instance the very healthy reaction most of the world had to the tsunami that hit several countries surrounding the Indian ocean last December 26. Such a global, instantaneous mobilization of goodwill to help alleviate the sufferings endured by our brothers and sisters would not have been possible just a few decades ago. Of course, the scale and impact of this event was in itself a powerful trigger to get people to respond in such a supportive manner, whereas famines in African countries that set in gradually do not usually elicit such a spontaneous response, and it takes much more effort on the part of NGOs and journalists to catalyze a response proportionate to the scope of such crises.
But in the end, the way to deal with all the disturbing news and information that get our way is to take all of this as a challenge and a test to get us to develop greater soul-level equanimity, to learn to face the truth without shying away from it all while not allowing an unnecessary emotional reaction to overwhelm us and deprive us temporarily of our inner connection with the universal well of wisdom that can shed light and bring to us a deeper understanding of what our role may be, if any, with regard to the knowledge that has come our way. I don't think it is healthy and spiritually balanced to allow ourselves to be taken down into the lower end of the vibrational scale of consciousness - into utter despair, unremitting sadness, explosive anger or deep revulsion - for in doing so we only open ourselves to being disempowered and rendered useless, for a time, regarding the positive contributions we can absolutely make towards the solutions, if only through holding the basic inner sense that ultimately the universe is benevolent towards all Life and all sentient beings, that goodness, kindness and love always prevail, and that no matter how difficult a situation may appear, some greater good will always come from it.
I don't know if such thoughts can help in any way to better deal with these realities, and there could certainly be many other additional thoughts and perspectives that would be useful to consider as well - such as the fact that all the light being shed upon the previously dark corners of human violence and corruption is now bringing this all up to the surface so it may all be consciously appraised, cleansed and eventually eliminated for good - but I hope this has offered you a modicum of guidance to perhaps responding in a more self-empowering and ultimately Light-catalyzing manner in the future to the knowledge offered through my compilations. In this regard, I'm glad that you mentioned the positive effect your participation to the Meditation Focus is having on you as this is indeed, to me, an extremely sane and Light/Love/Peace-affirming manner to respond to the travails humanity is going through as we are reaching up to a higher level of conscious Oneness with All That Is, and thus being all that we can be for the Highest Good of All.
Thank you Beverley for your open heart and growing Light ;-)
NOTE: I have included below several other feedbacks from ERN subscribers to my recent query in The Big Scoop Series #1: The Cream of The Crop
HEIGHTENED AWARENESS IS REQUIRED FOR A MORE THOROUGH INNERSTANDING OF THIS MOST EXCELLENT AWARENESS-PROVOKING LETTER
From: "Margaret Wolf" email@example.com>
Subject: Awareness is what we are!
Date: Fri, 15 Apr 2005
Thanks for posting your back-and-forth with Kiara. I think it points to some interesting things about our current spiritual process. You said such an important thing: "Enlightenment is non-exclusive to any specific path or technique or guide." Personally, I feel that all of the spiritual paths of the past are becoming quickly irrelevant. This is a time like no other. Nothing like this time has ever happened before. The past if over. Evolution is kicking at us from behind and rushing at us from the front.
Perhaps, as linear time collapses, our future selves are appearing right now in many of us, in ways we never could have anticipated. We change and mutate. We see visions. Sometimes we don't know who we are anymore.
The old forms don't and can't describe what is happening to us. Personal enlightenment??? The one negates the other. There is a new enlightenment. A new body. A new Self. A new humanity. Together we will create new forms of transmission and blessing.
Here is an offering of another kind of "deesha", one that anyone can give to themselves:
Ask yourself, what is awareness? You must know what it is, for are you not aware right now, as you are reading these words? Everything you see is within your awareness, the sun, the tree out the window, the computer monitor. Even your body is within this awareness. Your mind and your thoughts are too. Awareness is what you refer to when you think of yourself. Everything exists within this awareness. Everything we experience inside, or outside in the world, is within awareness. We have always been with this awareness. Awareness is our being; we are awareness.
Webster defines awareness as "being conscious", and defines consciousness as "being in the state of awareness", so they are the same thing. Everything in the universe is at its root consciousness, which can manifest as energy, light, thought, and matter. The universe is consciousness.
Awareness, or consciousness, is what we are, and this conscious awareness is always a part of infinite Consciousness, often refered to as God, the Absolute, Divine Being, Higher Power, and much more. It is the Source of Life-Energy that flows through all things. It is eternal and infinite and unknowable in its vastness. It is the great mystery at the center of everything.
We are always connected to infinite Consciousness. We cannot break this connection. It is what we are. Are we ever separate from our awareness? Not ever. Our connection is closer than breathing, closer than our heartbeat. Most of us have forgotten this. And in our forgetfulness, we misunderstand so much and create such confusion. We are overwhelmed with so much mental activity, that it is difficult to find the awareness-we-are, in the midst of all of our thinking, which creates the illusion of the separate "thinker", who appears to be separate from everything. We can, however, remember that our thinking exists within our awareness, that awareness is what we truly are, and awareness is never separate from anything.
Come experience a taste of the wonder of awareness! Instead of fixating on the thoughts that are within awareness, and by that, ignoring the awareness which you are, come experience awareness itself. Discover for yourself the joy of that! Taste the freedom and wonder of contemplating pure awareness, "awareness without an object", just awareness itself. It will blow you away. It is not difficult. The way is open to everyone.
Distinguish between the thinking mind and the awareness in which the thinking occurs.
This is the beginning of knowing who you really are.
It is a little enlightenment--knowing the awareness we are, and feeling our connection to infinite Consciousness and all that is. This is where we begin.
Enlightenment is not the goal at the end of seeking. Enlightenment is where we start. There is no end to this journey. Realizations always deepen. You move your attention from what you think you know, from your habitual thinking and self-talk, and WOW! There it is!
Your attention swims into its own element, awareness, the ocean it has thirsted for. Oh, it is a joy! It is the joy of knowing who you really are! We leave the limitations of our thinking mind, and float in the awareness we are.
The ship of our deliverance is coming right to us. What we need shall come to us! We float, we allow, our enlightenment to occur. We trust, because trust is the proper way to face the unknown. On we go. It is our destiny to swim in that infinite ocean of Consciousness, as it is perhaps our destiny to one day explore the galaxy and beyond in our starships.
We are little seeds planted in special little greenhouses called planets. We are star-seeds. We are the awareness of Life.
We are no longer lost on the surface of forgetfulness of who we. We are awareness. We already are in the ocean of Consciousness, where anything is possible, and where all the answers we seek will be found.
Before closing, I must wonder at the number 64,000. Any multiple of eight is intriguing. Eight is an octave of the musical scale which repeats and repeats. Eight times eight is sixty-four, the number of squares on a chessboard and the number of hexagrams in the I CHING. Eight written sideways is the symbol of infinity. 64,000 is an interesting number.
Thanks again, Jean, for the work you do, helping us to awaken to what's what.

Subject: Some thoughts
Date: 19 Apr 2005
Thank you again for your hard work and great compilations.
I really appreciated the dialog you posted with Kiara about Bagwhan (sp?). I deeply enjoyed the respectful way that you both handled your differences. It speaks volumes about both of your spiritual maturities. I really can't say that I sided with either of you, it was just a pleasure to witness a debate of that caliber.
Something that I would like to see discussed and debated in a similar fashion (perhaps you could orchestrate this), is a dialog between the "Love and Light" people and those like you that really see the darkness. I would characterize the Love and Light people as those that declare that darkness does not exist, if you have problems it is due to negative thoughts, if you just give up your negative thinking all your problems will disappear, and if the whole world would give up negative thinking all the problems in the world will disappear. These people DO exist.
Contrast that with people like you (well, is there anyone like you?) that pull the cover off the dark, and fighting like heck, armed with Truth and integrity, refusing to pick up the modalities and weapons of the dark, brave the front lines.
How do people with these divergent views of reality find common ground? I have seen it split up deep friendships. I think it not only polarizes the "new age" community of thought, it paralyzes many people into inaction. I think many people view reality with a mix of both views and end up confused and unable to act. I would love to hear your views on this.
MY REPLY WAS:
When I read your most interesting suggestion, what first came to mind is that people who prefer to focus on "Love and Light" only at the exclusion of anything else should not be seen in any way as unworthy of our respect for this. Using a bit of the same frankness I used in my dialogue with Kiara. I'd say your view on these people appears to me to be tinged with judgement. I certainly understand that to make your point you'd have to categorize them as you did and that you've probably encountered people whose attitude was so extreme as to be a source of polarizing division as you allude to. The thing that came to me is that we've all been there at some point in our awakening process - and perhaps we are still very much "there", unaware that some residual black and white filters make us feel we are on a brighter, truer side of the "truth" as opposed to others who did not "get it" yet. So considering that it is a normal part of the gradual selective process through which we sift through all the ideas and perceptions that are to be experienced an assessed before we can eventually come to some understanding of What Is that is somewhat closer to What Actually IS, I'd say that anyone who feel more comfortable for the moment with not gazing too directly at all the harsh realities of our end-time period is probably acting very wisely to protect his/her inner balance, thus giving him/herself more time to develop a surer footing to perhaps one day being strong enough and sufficiently self-empowered to tackle any element of wrongdoing or ignorance-driven imbalance that needs to be redressed in the world, usually as a trial necessary to test our own mettle through the fire of 3D experiences perfectly suited to properly test us in our upward ascension to higher service.
Then my second and final thought on this is that I would not see, unless this is chosen as a fun-filled welcome challenge by interested people, which value there could be to pit people with opposing views in the fashion you propose. To me there is common ground the moment two or more people respect, appreciate and love each other for Who they each are - that is, a unique expression of the infinite potential of the Divine in all of us - no matter how diverging their viewpoints. All the rest is human drama and petty ego-driven concerns that serve little purpose UNLESS there is a mutual desire to learn from each other's perspectives as being equally valid observations of the same central fire - the issue debated - around which these people are seated and thus coming at from a different and yet complementary angle. Then if there is action to be taken after a consensus has emerged as to the best course of action - or at least the best initial starting point to address a given problem, then it will naturally unfold. And if not, then in my view there is no one to be faulted, something was certainly learned anyway and when the spiritual maturation of the individual meets the right opportunity for creative, constructive action, then action there will be.
Upon the death of Pope John Paul 2, you quoted some of his beautiful peace pros. He was unarguably a brilliant and eloquent man. However, I feel his stands on so many issues are contrary to the sustainability of life on Earth and the effort of true equality of all people. There was such a huge media hype over this event. The Catholic church received millions of dollars in free advertisements giving a very corrupt institution an unquestioned and unchallenged platform from which to pour forth its indoctrinational message. Must you jump on that bandwagon? A very different view is given here.
The Pope Who Revived the Office of the Inquisition
An American Catholic Reflects on Papacy of John Paul II
(NFJ: Quite a searing, thorough criticism of John Paul II indeed - most revealing! It leaves me wondering what it will be under the new pope who was behind much of the previous pope policies...)
MY REPLY WAS:
My inclusion of those quotes were simply in deference to the fact that despite the harshly critical articles I had recently networked about his stewardship of the Catholic Church, this man had also obviously some bright sides that I felt needed to be highlighted as well. If you consider that this amounts to jumping on a bandwagon, then it is your choice and I respect it ;-)
Please don't ever stop doing what you do! Keep doing this until you have uncovered every last rat hole that the darkness hides in.
MY REPLY WAS:
I sincerely believe no one can ever achieve that for there are such uncovered dark sides in each and every single human alive on this planet. If I can ever succeed in uncovering all mines and not digging more for myself to fall into, then that will be a notable achievement.
What I hope is to be able to uncover all the beauty and dazzling goodness that is lying mostly hidden and dormant all around and within us, awaiting for us to open our wings and start flying towards the heavenly skies of perfection where we all belong.
Blessings to you.

Subject: Hi Jean! Something good to share - Broken Angels/Broken Indigos
Thank you for all that you do! You are truly precious! I have included a link to an article that I think is worthy of your attention. Surely you have heard about the rise in autism in America and in other parts of the world. It seems to be a troubling situation that is happening with our children. The article on "Broken Angels-Broken Indigos" presents a very important perspective that needs to be shared. Please take a look-see. I think you will be moved to share the information. Thank you again for your marvelous efforts! We need more like you in the world!
Note from Jean: Here is the beginning of this most interesting article...
Broken Angels ~ Broken Indigos . . .
Angels in Broken Bodies
April 9, 2005
With increasing emphasis and attention placed on the New Children being born in the last couple of decades - like the Indigo Children, Psychic Children, Dolphin Children, Star Kids and so forth - it seems surprising that there is a huge population of very special and unique children that have been largely over-looked by the spiritual/metaphysical/new age community.
These are the angels in broken bodies ... also known as Broken Indigos. They either arrive in this world already "broken" or they become "broken" through exposure to harmful substances and/or exposure to rough and insensitive handling.
Using the term "broken" seems appropriate to describe these unique and advanced children: for although it may imply imperfection with downbeat undertones, it nevertheless tells of the condition succinctly in two words: "Broken Indigos" ... "Broken Angels". One immediately gets the point upon hearing it.
Broken Indigos have been over-looked largely because they are unique in a different way. Their special talents are hidden for the most part and have not yet surfaced to impress us with astounding psychic abilities, articulate wisdom-beyond-their-age, astute observations, superior cognitive skills, prodigy-like abilities and so on.
Neither have the Broken Indigos captivated the attention of the spiritual/metaphysical/new age community because - for the most part - they present a far greater challenge. Since the dramatic, rapid rise in numbers of Broken Indigos, many of our long-standing institutions will be forced to change in order to effectively deal with this new epidemic:
- improvements within our educational systems will be initiated;
- the pharmaceutical industry will be mightily confronted - maybe even sued for billions at some point;
- conventional medical practices and policies on disease treatment will come under greater scrutiny;
- commercial farming methods and food processing will be reformed ;
- news trends will urge upgrades in family lifestyle, eating habits, health and nutrition;
- it will no longer be considered quirky, faddish and fanatical to eat wholesome, healthy, organic foods
The Ugly Duckling
Remember the important moral of the popular fairy tale, The Ugly Duckling?
Broken Indigos don't usually come in pretty "wrappings" and their special talents are obscured. Their appearance and behavior often perplexes and greatly frustrates - even annoys - those who are impatient or repulsed by "imperfections" or "abnormalities" of the human race.
Broken Indigos may seem abnormal at first. However, their highly evolved natures makes them ultra sensitive and most of them suffer sensory overload. Their ultra sensitivities often cause adverse reactions to certain substances - ingredients in foods (additives, chemicals, artificial products, etc), energy vibrations, sounds, thoughts and ill-behavior in our world - often making it difficult for them to be fully inside their bodies.
Imagine a time when you may have been surrounded by a large crowd of noisy people or a deafening rock concert or a nearby noisy construction zone. Remember how disturbed you may have felt at first with all the noise, frenzy, clammer, chaos and confusion and due to the irritation you felt how you may have hurried to leave the area as quickly as possible?
For many autistic children, the normal sounds, normal conversations and other normal activities can seem just as noisy, loud, confusing and chaotic as the above scenario. Heap an additional mega sensitivity to the thoughts and emotional states of those around him or her and you have one traumatized child who has no way to feel safe and loved in overly loud, chaotic and brutal world.
Consequently, the relief they seek may only be found by retreating deep within themselves and avoiding relating to the world around them.
There are Broken Indigos who come with special gifts of superior intelligence and/or athletic abilities; some may have higher psychic, intuitive, healing, telepathic or manifesting skills; others may have an unusual knack for art, music, writing, singing, dancing or other creative expression. Still others among their numbers may have an enormous capacity for extraordinary compassion, wisdom and understanding.
We may not be able to notice the gifts these children hold because we may not be able to recognize it if these abilities look very different from what we are familiar with.
And yet, these wonderful attributes exist nonetheless, and are often hidden beneath a heavy dark cloud of abnormal development that is the direct result of the ills of society and unhealthy lifestyle choices of families.
The unique gifts and abilities of Broken Indigos lay dormant within and become quashed beneath the colossal weight of physical, mental and emotional disorders that are not their fault. This is not speculation, since increasing research is proving my point.
Sadly, for the vast majority of Broken Indigos, we won't see what their special gifts are - nor recognize what they are capable of accomplishing - unless we as a society take action to shift our choices in thinking and behavior - away from beliefs and behavior that inadvertently creates and perpetrates the causes of these disorders in our children - toward awareness and behavior that serves to correct these issues.
Autism - the new epidemic
Once a rare neurological disorder appearing in as few as 1 in 10,000 births, autism is now the number one disability entering the country's developmental services system. In fact, autism is now more prevalent than childhood cancer, diabetes and Down's syndrome. In certain areas of the USA, Autism is now reported to affect one in every 166 children! These are clinical facts, not guesses nor speculation. It is the new epidemic in this country that is also beginning to erupt in other parts of the world.
Because of its rarity, Autism was greatly misunderstood and poorly handled by the medical field only a few decades ago. The standard treatment for this condition was almost always a grim prognosis along with use of drugs - which never improved the condition and often made it worse through drug side effects.
The belief at that time - which continues to this day even among medical and mental health professionals - is that there is no method that improves or cures autism. Thankfully - because of continuing studies in the field of brain-research, dietary relationship to mental and physical disease, and advances in therapeutic modalities - this is no longer true.
Its interesting that many folks had their first exposure to the condition of autism through the movie "Rain Main" which is based on a true story. Dustin Hoffman plays the role of an autistic savant who - even though he cannot take care of himself and lives in a special home for the mentally challenged - has a remarkable ability to memorize names and numbers and can solve complex math problems instantly in his head.
The movie unfolds into a warm and rather humorous odyssey as his brother - played by Tom Cruise - takes him to a Las Vegas casino where the gifts of autistic savant skills pays off very well.
Another well-known autistic savant is Albert Einstein. Believe it or not, Einstein did poorly in school and was thought to be retarded in his early childhood. He had great difficulty performing certain motor skills - like tying his shoes. He even had difficulty taking care of himself as an adult (remember that famous wild, uncombed hair?) and never learned to drive a car. He had poor social skills.
Thankfully, he was married to a devoted, caring wife who understood him and made sure he had clothes on before he left the house!
An autistic brain has a cerebrum (abstract and creative thought, reason) larger than normal, and a cerebellum (motor coordination, balance) smaller than normal. An autopsy of Einstein's brain showed that the cerebrum was indeed larger than normal (like an autistic brain). Unfortunately, they did not reveal the size of his cerebellum. Einstein was also a visual thinker - like those with autism.
He was a strong advocate for vegetarianism, which may have been one of the healthy lifestyle choices that contributed to improving his autistic symptoms to the point of enabling him to function well enough in spite of his "handicap".
Bill Gates - multi-billionaire creator of Microsoft - is also diagnosed with autism (the Aspergers variety). That is why its been said that you will rarely - if ever - see Bill Gates in an interview. Along with poor social skills and extreme shyness, he also exhibits other autistic characteristics. Yet, obviously, this man is brilliant in his field.
Now ... this does not mean that all autistic children have the potential to be famous or brilliantly inventive. Its only fair to these kids to appreciate them at whatever level of functioning they are able to achieve. I mention well-known autistic people to demonstrate that in spite of their struggles with a "disability" they made great contributions to society precisely because they were very different ... even to the point of being described by others as being retarded or broken.
To think differently than the rest is what initially set well-known autistic people apart from "normal" society. Even so, their difference brought long-lasting advancement and positive change to the lives they touched.

Subject: Understanding of the Power of Love and Light
Date: 17 Apr 2005:
Greetings, Jean: I would like to share the following with you because it is partly thinking about your belief that Love and Light will prevail that led me to it.
I was wondering why it is that there is such a history of dictators rising to power in all times and all places around the world, and why it is seemingly so easy for this to happen. Then I was thinking about what I've observed, that people in general do not want to look at the darkness around them, whether it's right in their neighborhood or on a bigger scale. And then I saw so clearly that this is because most people are AFRAID of manifestations of spiritual darkness, because most people have not had experiences of the power of the living Light and Love--and so they feel helpless in the face of darkness.
And then thought about the despair I fall into at times, and the fear. And understood that because I am one that has been blessed with experiencing that Light, it is not a luxury for me to turn to and remember the Light, but almost an obligation, to myself, my Earth, and all beings who live on her. And that it is a lack of faith when I allow despair to take me over.
I know that whatever spiritual qualities one asks for, one is given. I am asking now for courage and strength to hold fast to the knowledge that the Light IS stronger than the darkness, and that these qualities be given to all of us on our Earth who are keeping the Light anchored here.
Thank you for your part in leading me to this understanding.

Hopi warnings to the world
March 29, 2005
by: Brenda Norrell / Indian Country Today
HOTEVILLA, Ariz. - From Hopiland, a spiritual vortex for Native people, spiritual leaders Dan Evehema and Thomas Banyacya became the voice of the voiceless: the birds and animals. Warning of the impending apocalypse, they urged all people of good hearts to join them.
Even in their last years, Evehema and Banyacya warned that material greed and ignoring spiritual truth results in climate change, and, ultimately, the destruction of the world.
Hopi Snake Priest Evehema said the disease in the world today is greed, and the final insult for this country's aboriginal people is the loss of ceremonial land.
''We are now faced with great problems, not only here but throughout the land. Ancient cultures are being annihilated. Our people's lands are being taken from them. Why is this happening? It is happening because many have given up or manipulated their original spiritual teachings.
''The way of life that the Great Spirit has given to all people of the world, whatever your original instructions, are not being honored. It is because of this great sickness called greed, which infects every land and country,'' Evehema said, at the age of 105, in a statement to all humanity.
''Now we are at the very end of our trail. Many people no longer recognize the true path of the Great Spirit. They have, in fact, no respect for the Great Spirit or for our precious Mother Earth, who gives us all life.''
Evehema said Hopi long ago were told that someone would go to the moon and bring something back. Because of this, nature would show signs of losing its balance.
''Now we see that coming about. All over the world, there are now many signs that nature is no longer in balance. Floods, drought, earthquakes and great storms are occurring frequently and causing widespread suffering.
''Now we must look upon each other as brothers and sisters. There is no more time for divisions among people.''
Evehema said there is no freedom of the press for traditional Hopi speaking the truth because newspapers only publish what the government wants printed. He said the leaders in the White House and the Glass House (United Nations) have been warned of what is to come, but have not listened.
''So, as our prophecy says, it must be up to the people with good pure hearts that will not be afraid to help us to fulfill our destiny in peace for this world.''
Banyacya was among the Motee Sinom (Hopi for first people) who urged the United Nations in 1992 to listen. Banyacya said traditional Hopi follow the spiritual path given by Massau'u (the Great Spirit).
''We made a sacred covenant to follow his life plan at all times, which includes the responsibility of taking care of this land and life for his divine purpose. We have never made treaties with any foreign nation, including the United States, but for many centuries we have honored this sacred agreement. Our goals are not to gain political control, monetary wealth nor military power, but rather to pray and to promote the welfare of all living beings and to preserve the world in a natural way.''
In 1948, traditional Hopi spiritual leaders chose Banyacya and others to carry the message forward. Repeating the wisdom, Banyacya said the Creator made the first world in perfect balance, but humans turned away from moral and spiritual principles and only a handful survived the earthquakes.
The mistakes were repeated in the second world, and freezing in the great ice age destroyed the people. The third world lasted a long time and, as in the previous worlds, the people spoke one language. They invented technologies still unknown to modern man, but eventually turned away from natural laws and pursued material things.
''They gradually turned away from natural laws, pursued only material things, and finally only gambled while they ridiculed spiritual principles. No one stopped them from this course, and the world was destroyed by the great flood that many nations still recall in their ancient history and religious teachings.
''The elders said again only small groups escaped and came to this fourth world where we now live. Our world is in terrible shape again even though the Great Spirit gave us different languages and sent us to four corners of the world and told us to take care the Earth and all that is in it.''
Banyacya said mankind is in the final days of the prophecy.
''What have you, as individuals, as nations and as the world body, been doing to take care of this Earth?'' Banyacya asked the United Nations.
''In the Earth today, humans poison their own food, water and air with pollution. Many of us, including children, are left to starve. Many wars are still being fought. Greed and concern for material things is a common disease.''
Banyacya said Hopi foretold of the ''gourd of ashes'' (atomic bomb) that destroyed thousands in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Hopi believe that the Persian Gulf would have been the third great war if use of the worst weapons had not been stopped.
''We do have a choice. If you, the nations of this Earth, create another great war, the Hopi believe we humans will burn ourselves to death with ashes.
''Nature itself does not speak with a voice that we can easily understand. Neither can the animals and birds we are threatening with extinction talk to us. Who in this world can speak for nature and the spiritual energy that creates and flows through all life?''
Banyacya said it is necessary for human beings that have not separated themselves from the land and nature to speak out.
Finally, he said, the first people and the spirit of the ancestors are giving loud warnings. He pointed out that there are increasing floods, hurricanes; hail storms, climate changes and earthquakes.
''Even animals and birds are warning us with strange changes in their behavior, such as the beaching of whales. Why do animals act like they know about the Earth's problems and most humans act like they know nothing?
''If we humans do not wake up to the warnings, the great purification will come to destroy this world just as the previous worlds were destroyed.''
Evehema and Banyacya died within three weeks of one another in early 1999. Evehema died at the age of 108 on Jan. 15, 1999. Banyacya, born in 1910, died on Feb. 6, 1999.
Their voices live on.
FEEDBACKS RECEIVED THROUGH EMAIL
From: "Angus" email@example.com>
Subject: re: feedback
Date: Sat, 16 Apr 2005
I receive your compilations via Marty Greenhut's firstname.lastname@example.org list... which is basically designed for distributing news and comment and much less for response.
You asked in your most recent compilation, "... I'm, as always, surprised no one (except Meria!) is hardly ever sending me any feedback on the often grossly shocking information contained in this type of compilation. I wonder why... Infoglut? No time to read? No desire to emphasize what is wrong by focusing attention on it? Denial of reality (at least this down-to-earth aspect of reality)? Complacency? Passivity? Apathy? Feeling of powerlessness to change any of it? All of the above? None of the above?..."
It's the "time" factor Jean. There's a little bit of the desire NOT to emphasize the negative, yet we must be able to recognize a problem before we can effectively correct it. Thus pointing out flaws is necessary. I doubt there is all that much denial from the folks who would and do read your compilations. Nor do I sense complacency or apathy. Some passivity exists I'm sure but I think there's more of a sense of powerlessness to change anything in all of us.
There's some of the "infoglut" involved too, since the Internet is flowing with "alternative" news these days. But mostly it's TIME - and the lack of it. Many of us hold down full time jobs while trying to stay informed and helping others be informed. I suspect a Service like yours to be 99% distribution...and the chain reaction is that those you reach will distribute what impresses them to their circle of acquaintances and so on.
Some of what you reveal is "shocking" as you say... but we're not that easily shocked any more - especially if we've been privy to what has been going on according to "sources" such as yourself and Meria. The folks I hang with, spiritually and intellectually, would prefer to de-emphasize the negative and the gross... and concentrate on helping individuals cope with and understand better the broader picture and their place in it.
We need all facets of style and approach to reveal and correct the ungodliness that pervades our lives and messes with our psyche. Some will point out the symptoms; some will offer remedies and anecdotes. We're all trying to find the Cure.
But even if you don't get feedback... you need to be assured that your Service is effective. You're a catalyst. Keep in mind also that you're "preaching to the choir" in most instances and that We take various forms of "action" in our response to what you reveal to us. You are adding to the collective consciousness.
It's like raising kids... for decades they act as if their parents are nothing more than a bother, an intrusion, and then one day -hopefully by the time they are 30 or 40 years old- the kids wake up and realize what a marvelous job the parents did.
It's Thankless most of the time but certainly not Fruitless.

For me none of the above. While I find your information interesting, absolutely none of it strikes me as something I ought to protest. Blame me as a passive participant, I don't feel guilty. The whole of my effort at this time is grooming my consciousness for inner peace irregardless of outer appearances. In the USA it's a battle simply to stay healthy and gainfully employed. And Jean, it's obvious that these compilations are purposeful for you - your chosen path as it were. And you are very, very good at it.

Subject: Re the cream
Your info is comprehensive and detailed as found nowhere else. Thanks for all the work you do.
If we do truly create our reality by what we think, feel, believe and give our attention towards, then why would any of us want to spend one single second on the pile of negative and difficult challenges that have already been created? For in doing so, we perpetuate their continuance.
Is it really sticking your head in the sand to focus on creating a newer world of light and love, difficult and impossible as that may seem? I say we have no other choice... the crushing weight of even a partial truth of today's compilation leaves one feeling suffocated, numb and without hope.
Within each of us, our families and circles of friends, lie the seeds for this future we want... begin in some way today! Share your love with another, reach out to help, let someone know you care. Pick up that paper on the ground, walk to the corner store, spend a little less and give it to the homeless man, help out at church or the boy scouts.
Resolve today to make a difference, even if only in your thoughts.

Jean ~ Since you asked...
My reason(s) are: No desire to emphasize what is wrong by focusing attention on it (as you had speculated) and Preferring to visualize AND MANIFEST the world as I desire it to be: healed, healthy, safe, and full of Love, Beauty, Harmony, Peace, Joy, and Happiness.You are a powerful, knowledgeable person with the ability to directly influence the vibratory frequency and energy of this planet, and I often question your motives for promoting the direction of energy towards the very situations we wish to transform.
PEACE, LOVE, JOY, MAGIC and MIRACLES
Note from Jean: My motives are to shed Light on what needs to be changed - like a red light at a crossroad indicating that one is to stop or possibly be involved in a car accident - providing through this networking service a means for thousands of people to access information that would often otherwise be hardly accessible and act as a kind of central hub through which people can share all kinds of news, views and info with like-minded people "as a way to expand and deepen global awareness and the sense of forming a global spiritual community gradually empowering itself to contribute in shaping the future of this world" - as it says in the automated response all subscribers receive upon subscribing to this service.

Subject: RE: I wonder why...
My personal feedbacks are these:
1) Many of your info have been passed on to my website and blogs, with the link to your website and tell people about ERN free newsletter.
2) I am not an expert on most of the politics dynamic. It take a lot of energy to read and to see the whole picture, just like it might take you a lot of energy to read the visionary writings I sent you. I thought they are connected to the network but you see differently.
3) Many times when I have my best performance, the audience are in total silent. This is what I feel about reading your newsletter. There are so much to process, not just to read, but to process. I am grateful that one way to process these info is to put them on my blogs and website, Just to read them again, like a notebook, then the meditation focus shall be much more profound.
4) Every writer is ERN is brilliant and powerful, it just make a foreigner language speaker like me stay quiet, The way I give feed back is to keep on sending you what inspire me as a "thank you note." It getting too much, then you have to tell me to hold them until Oct.
There might be more, but for now - That is that. ^_^
I do feel when the voices get so loud and angry and ugly, instead to add another voice, silence might be just fine. After all our focus is to create a better world and we need inspirations for that. Personally, I don't see things as dark and light in polarity, but that is how most people see it. I do know from my heart that energy transmute itself by the observers in us all. I watch myself all the time while reading your newsletter, to see if I am taken by the emotions or am I having clear visions to know what to do in my meditation focus. I need to be responsible for the thoughts I add into the collective unconscious.
Your are doing a great work to inform people what really happening. I have been forward your newsletter to my list and get the same silent response. I think we just can't afford to doubt ourselves.
I love you, and most of us do. I know this from my heart.

From: Birgitta Svahnström firstname.lastname@example.org>
When I read your question about so few people sending you feed-back on the stuff in the many horrendous articles I feel compelled to write you immediately.
First of all you must know how grateful I and many others with me are for the fantastic work you are doing. I can really say that your compilations have been an opportunity for me to talk about world events with people who have disbelieved me, but after a time, when mainstream media have been forced to catch up, have acknowledged what I had told them. Today some of them ask me for "more news".
On the other hand I also want to let you know that I feel the compilations are getting to be too magnum sized and massive to read. I worry that I skip some important article because I have to choose and skim through this massive amount of articles. My wish would be for you do the choosing so that your readers get articles that mirrors the current situation. Sometimes all the atrocities committed are just too much especially when the same event is covered in several of the articles. For example 5 articles on Canadian Seal hunt.
I feel we definitely need to be informed and so know what is going on on our planet, but somehow I feel that more of the Light Series issues should be highlighted so that we could put our energy into the good and beautiful things that occur. This is because the heartbreak and downheartedness one feels because of all the "bad stuff" weakens the energy input into the "good stuff".
I also do believe that if the mainstream media would concentrate their news on ethical and on issues where high morals have been the guidelines the news transmissions would serve as an inspiration towards creating a better society. Now crime and violence have become the norm it seems and this is all we get when switching on the news channels.
I suppose I also feel that most series are as you say 'grossly shocking' and are all about evil and focusing attention on that evil. Yes I do feel it would be appropriate to highlight the good and the beautiful and all strides taken in that direction. We are all choking on catastrophes, terrorism, destruction etc served to us by the mainstream media in every news broadcast. Evil events become the norm, fear accelerates and there is nothing to balance these impressions.
The Light Series is an injection of hope and an inspiration to assist in good-will work and creating positive thought-forms. Good-will is a powerful force and an antidote to evil. So although we of course, all of us, need to know what is going on in order to change things we definitely also need the know how and what methods to use to instigate change.
Anyway, thanks for your work. Don't let it grow over your head, spare yourself. You are a true server and disciple of the timeless wisdom.

Subject: Re: The Big Scoop Series #1 (PART 1): The Cream
I can only speak for myself but even though the information you provide is useful in understanding the situation, it doesn't contain anything about what one can do about it except, perhaps, to complain to some "authority" ... yet the information you provide tells us that those in positions of authority are part of and mostly responsible for the situation.
In my opinion the U.S. and most probably a large part of the so-called civilized world will need a rather large and rather rude shock before they change their ways and there is nothing that ordinary people can do about it except arrange their lives so as to be insulated as much as possible from the fallout.

Thank your for all the compilations you are sending me. I must admit, that feedback would be the least I could give back to you. But there is a lot of stuff to read and English is a foreign language to me.
This week I have been in Copenhagen with my work. Me and a colleague were on a five day trip to Copenhagen with 7 mental and physical disabled people. We visited Christiansborg Castle where the Danish parliament is. The security is, as in airports. We had to leave our overcoats, bags and everything in a locker room and had to go through a metal detector to get in. All because a man threw paint on the Danish prime minister when he decided that Denmark would support the USA in the invasion on Irak. I was really thinking of David Icke and "problem - reaction - solution". Everywhere in Copenhagen was video control and lots of police. We visited a new shopping center where the video control was massive. It was forbidden to smoke in the center, and everything was adapted to a population well trained to do what the authorities was expecting from them. The options in the center was to shop and adjust to a certain lifestyle, to play all sorts of plays for adults and children, and to eat. Everywhere we were followed by the cameras in the ceiling. And people didn't even notice them. They loved to buy lots of things and felt very safe with the video cameras. I felt sick! All over were transmitters for cellphones, on buildings an masts. Even on schools and kindergartens. People are so addicted to their cellphones that they ignore that electromagnetic fields could create great damage to their brains. Well they don't need to chip the population. The population have chipped themselves with their cellphones. They can be tracked everywhere.
I am living in the countryside and it is a long time ago since I was in Copenhagen the last time. But the surveillance is running fast. And I got the feeling of powerlessness. People I talked didn't feel under surveillance. They felt safe. I felt my human rights violated. They told me, that if I did nothing wrong, I wouldn't have to fear anything. They didnt understand that I need the right to be free. I almost had the urge to scream out loud to wake them up. Wake up, wake up! Don't you see what is going on? The police would certainly have picked me up and sent me to psychiatric treatment. I was the one apart from the others and I felt lonely.
I now see how easy it was back in the 1930s for Hitler to train the population with propaganda. It is much easier today with the massive propaganda from television and the news.
I spent much time looking at people and all the surveillance. It really is a well trained population, and it makes me very sad. My colleague and I talked at lot about these things, she and I are like-minded. We are not very popular by all our colleagues because we fight to give the mental and physic disabled people their self-determination over their lives back to them in all areas of their lifes. It is not an easy task, but every time we succeed is a happy day.
Thanks again Jean. With the compilations you send me, I know I am not alone in this world.

The Positive Approach Peace Pilgrim
I have chosen the positive approachinstead of stressing the bad things I am against, I stress the good things which I am for. Those who choose the negative approach dwell on what is wrong, resorting to judgment and criticism, and sometimes even to name-calling. Naturally, the negative approach has a detrimental effect on the person who uses it, while the positive approach has a good effect.
When evil is attacked, it mobilizes, although it may have been weak and unorganized before, and therefore attack gives it validity and strength. When there is not attack, but instead good influences are brought to bear upon the situation, not only does the evil tend to fade away, but the evil-doer tends to be transformed.
The positive approach inspiresthe negative approach makes angry. When you make people angry, they act in accordance with their baser instincts, often violently and irrationally. When you inspire people, they act in accordance with their higher instincts, sensibly and rationally. Anger is transient, whereas inspiration sometimes has a lifelong effect.

Good question about feedback. For me, it is a combination of the following:
2. tax time, working mom, sick kids and husband, bad flu season here
3. There is only so much gloom that I can read without it dragging me down, I choose where to put my energy to make the world a better place and I know I can't do everything or worry about everything.
4. Personally, between you and me, remember the last time I responded about the "savethemales" site, which I found to be so toxic I couldn't believe you are sending people there?
I got slammed by the person who sent it to you, to whom you had forwarded my comment. I was astonished at her vitriol and just ignored it. Now, I DO not expect that you always have the luxury of loads of time to check out every little thing, which is one reason I thought I was giving you a heads up by reporting back on how angry and toxic I found the material on that site to be.
I will get over all this and try to remember to send you feedback if I have something to say in the future.

For so many of us out here who are quiet, keep up the good work. We look forward to your words and guidance. I have no fear of the future.

HI Jean, I wanted to ask you to include this in your next message. I would like to organize a "Hands Across America" event for peace, along old Rt. 66 as it runs from coast to coast. Much of it is walking trail now so it would be a safe place for people to line up, link hands for world peace. I think Mother's day would be a great day for this because Mother's day was started by mothers against war. Please help me network this. I have sent the idea to a few other people but no one has the network of contacts you do. I so appreciate all your hard work and keeping us informed.

Subject: The Transition Years of Magic and Wonder
I have written an article on the transition into the New Age. You are welcome to distribute it broadly if interested,
Yours in love and light,
The Transition Years of Magic and Wonder
By David Keane - April/2005
With this Major Festival Period of 2005, centred around the Wesak (Taurus) Full Moon on April/24, humanity stands on the cusp of perhaps the most extraordinary years of its long evolutionary history.
For many generations, students of scriptures and prophecy have anticipated this very year as the year commencing seven years of transition from the old age to the New Age.
Over a thousand years ago, the Mayans calculated that on 21/October/2012, there would be an astronomical alignment of our sun with the centre of the Milky Way. This will culminate in the northern winter solstice of 21/December/2012, the time the Mayans consider as the end of the old age and time of entry into a New Age. The date 21/December/2012 refers not to any particular event impacting upon the level of Earth at that time, but rather to a shift in subtle and exceedingly potent subjective energies. These energies directly affect evolution upon the physical level, but there may be a time lag or difference, depending upon humanitys level of receptivity to the new energies. Hence the date 21/December/2012 must be considered as an approximate time of transition.
This transition period into the New Age is also mentioned on many occasions in the Christian scriptures, especially in the Gospels and the Book of Revelation. In the Book of Revelation, this moment of transition, in which the door where evil dwells is closed is preceded by seven years of tribulation. Though the Biblical scriptures frequently focus upon the negative suffering aspect, the greater reality is that during these seven transition years, there will be a powerful release of Cosmic Power impacting strongly upon the physical level of Earth, breaking down the old forms that have served their purpose, and infusing the forms for the New Age with Life sufficient to build the new structures.
If we take seven years to the year 2012, then the commencement of the seven years of transition must commence in the year 2005. As the Full Moons of Aries (Easter), Taurus (Wesak) and Gemini (Festival of Goodwill) represent the annual spiritual high point, then it is during this Major Festival Period of 2005, and especially at the time of Wesak 2005, that the true release of Cosmic Power will commence its most profound impact.
In the book of Revelations, this seven years of tribulation is broken down into two periods of 42 months each period.
The first 42 months is a period of lesser tribulations and rising global tension.
(the Gentiles) will trample on the holy city for 42 months. And I will give power to my two witnesses and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth. (Rev 11: 2-3)
The second 42 months is a period in which the beast (the devil or Satan) is released upon the world, aided by a false prophet and there was war in heaven (Rev 12:7). This is the period of the greater tribulation. The beast was given a mouth to utter proud words and blasphemies and to exercise his authority for forty-two months. He opened his mouth to blaspheme God, and to slander his name and his dwelling place and those who live in heaven. He was given power to make war against the saints and to conquer them. (Rev 13:5-7)
This second period of greater tribulation is also mentioned in the book of Daniel: From the time that the daily sacrifice is abolished and the abomination that causes desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. Blessed is the one who waits for and reaches the end of the 1,335 days.
It is an intuitive step in faith to connect the Mayan and Biblical prophecies in this way. Many students of scripture have done so, and I feel also the impression of powerful and transformative energies during this Major Festival period.
Is it mere coincidence also that the conclave of Roman Catholic cardinals will be meeting to elect a new Pope right at the time of the Wesak Full Moon, the occasion inaugurating the seven years of transition? St Malachy, an Irishman born in 1094 and canonised by Pope Clement III in 1199, undertook to list in advance the proper succession of Roman pontiffs from Celestine II to the end of the world. St Malachy prophesied that there would be 112 Popes after Celestine II. Pope John Paul II, who has just died, is number 110. The coming Pope, number 111, will preside over the period of transition, leading to the time of the final Pope, number 112.
A number of eminent Catholic scholars, including the Jesuit priest Malachi Martin, have prophesied that Pope number 111 will be the false prophet, and Pope 112 will not be a legitimate Pope, but rather the Anti-Christ. Malachi Martin predicted a coming apostasy within the Roman Catholic Church, in which Satanists infiltrate the Vatican, and pedophilia and homosexual scandal within the church become rife. This view has gained much sympathy within certain sections of the church, and so it needs to be addressed, for it has the potential to divide the church and cause much damage.
For my part, I advise extreme caution when giving credence to prophecy that finds its emotional appeal through criticisms relating to issues as pedophilia and homosexuality. I present rather a contrary prophecy, on p59 of Destiny of Nations by Alice Bailey;
The whole field of religion will be re-inspired and re-oriented from Rome because the Master Jesus will again take hold of the Christian Church in an effort to re-spiritualise it and re-organise it. From the chair of the Pope of Rome, the Master Jesus will attempt to swing that great branch of the religious beliefs of the world again into a position of spiritual power and away from its present authoritative and temporary political potency.
I would ask the reader to ponder what are the true spiritual issues of our time, by what issues will the true Christ presence be known? Are not the greatest spiritual challenges for humanity relating to the principles of sharing and right human relations, and how do we mobilise activity of true compassion amongst the many? With respect to speech and action upon these crucial issues, let us evaluate the performance of the coming Pope.
The Birthing of the New Age
The birth of a baby can be a time of pain, but the overwhelming experience is one of joy and new life. So it is also with the birthing into a New Age. This is a time of the break down and discarding of those forms that had guided the old age, but are no longer appropriate for the new era. Such disintegration of forms is necessarily painful where there is resistance to the change, and attachment to that which has served its purpose and must now pass away. Such pain in transition is largely the result of anxiety, fear and resistance, and so can be largely avoided through right choice.
Here then is the crux of the matter. The pain and suffering we will suffer during this transition time will be the effects of our collective indecision and fear of entering into the new. And yet when the new is embraced gladly and with an open, receptive heart, the transition period can be a time of unsurpassed wonder and magic and joy. It will be a time when humanity collectively is learning the lessons of right relationships and responsibilities sufficient to inherit their destined role of custodians upon Earth of the various kingdoms of nature. It will be a time for humanity of coming into right relationship with divinity.
During the transition period, Cosmic Energy will for the first time be impacting directly and potently upon the physical etheric level of consciousness of humanity. This Cosmic Energy has gradually been releasing for a long time, slowly increasing in its potency of impact, and its effect over the past few generations has been to stimulate the principles of goodwill, unity and right relationship in the minds of awakened humanity. Thus we have witnessed over the past sixty years, the emergence of the goodwill movement and philanthropic organisations. Leading thinkers have explored and found thoughtforms for solution to the many immense problems facing humanity. Such impact has in the past made its major impact upon the mental and emotional levels of human consciousness. However in the past humanity has lacked the collective will to implement these thoughtforms for solution upon the physical level.
But now there is a significant shift. This Cosmic Energy is now impacting directly and potently upon the physical level. The time is come to transform the thoughtforms for solution into actuality upon the plane of Earth. All the causes of humanitys many strifes are now directly irradiated with divine light. This is not an easy process, as all that which is ugly and has over the ages been festering and remained hidden, must now be lifted up to the surface to be seen clearly for what it is. Only when the ugliness, corruption, selfishness and separativeness has been brought to the surface and seen for what it is, will humanity be able to release it forever and thus make right choice and enter freely into the new.
There is an inevitability and destiny relating to the overall process of emergence into the New Age. The planetary consciousness of Earth itself is in the process of passing through a major initiation into a higher level of consciousness, and all beings upon this planet are subject to the tide of change. And yet as individuals, we each are endowed with free will, and only as we choose willingly to enter into the New Age of shared responsibilities and right relationships will we do so. Before the transition period is over, each individual soul must be confronted with an ultimate choice, between spirit and form. For those souls who choose attachment to form and selfish desires, they will not be permitted to enter into the New Age. Their future path will be along a different evolution in which their desire for experience of form will be strongly nourished, but no longer will they have the vast responsibilities of custodianship which the development of the mind permits. It is the Cosmic Energy being released at this time which is dividing humanity, separating the sheep from the goats, forcing each soul to make that ultimate choice. It is not our concern to ponder where those souls who choose experience in form will go. Our task is rather to flow with the process and assist in the unfoldment of the overall Plan.

AN AMAZING EXAMPLE OF COMPASSION AND COURAGE
An advocate for Iraqis falls. Will U.S. take up her cause?
April 19, 2005
The tragedy of Marla Ruzicka, 28, goes well beyond the horrific way her young and passionate life ended, in a car bomb Saturday on Baghdad's dangerous airport road, just hours after she left a message on her parents' answering machine in California: "Mom and Dad, I love you. I'm OK."
Like a humanitarian version of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the vivacious blond woman, known to the many Iraqis she helped as an "angel," simply refused to adhere to accepted rules of what Americans and other foreigners could and should do.
She and her shoestring organization, the Campaign for Innocent Victims in Conflict, were on a mission: to document how many civilians had been hurt and killed by U.S. forces, to get proper compensation for them and to find other ways to help. She died on her way to visit an injured boy.
Like Mr. Smith in the classic movie, the long-time anti-war activist saw with an innocent's eye the decent thing to do and set out to do it, derided by experts and officials who knew better. In one way, they did. Few take such risks and pay with their lives.
The greater tragedy is that her objective - documenting shattered lives and helping repair them with generosity and compassion - would be good U.S. policy. Yes, the civilian casualty numbers likely would be used against the United States. But, more important, her approach would go a long way toward reducing anti-Americanism.
The U.S. did once envision an ambitious rebuilding effort. But the insurgency forced a retreat. U.S. officials and most other foreigners move in armored vehicles, live behind tight security in the Green Zone and have recoiled from the easy contact of the earliest weeks after the main war ended two years ago. Some civilian victims get compensation, but it is more sporadic than thorough.
Iraqis surely are aware that the U.S. carefully counts American deaths and injuries but does not document Iraqi casualties. Ruzicka fearlessly - and naïvely - decided not to beat that same retreat. Her relentless lobbying of the media, diplomats, officials and lawmakers had an impact. It helped win congressional approval of millions of dollars of civilian aid, according to the office of Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. Her statistics and detailed documentation helped other organizations compile unofficial records of Iraqi casualties.
In a piece written for USA TODAY before her death, and printed on the opposite page, Ruzicka spilled out her frustration at the lack of public accounting for the casualties. Quite apart from anything else, she wrote, it was needed "as a reminder of those whose dreams will never be realized."
Ruzicka's death spotlights the damage done by callousness in war. Perhaps the attention her extraordinary life is now getting may prompt a change of policy. And fulfill at least one of her own unrealized dreams.
Aid Worker Uncovered America's Secret Tally of Iraqi Civilian Deaths (April 20, 2005)
Originally from http://news.independent.co.uk/world/americas/story.jsp?story=631173
A week before she was killed by a suicide bomber, humanitarian worker Marla Ruzicka forced military commanders to admit they did keep records of Iraqi civilians killed by US forces. Tommy Franks, the former head of US Central Command, famously said the US army "don't do body counts", despite a requirement to do so by the Geneva Conventions. But in an essay Ms Ruzicka wrote a week before her death on Saturday and published yesterday, the 28-year-old revealed that a Brigadier General told her it was "standard operating procedure" for US troops to file a report when they shoot a non-combatant. She obtained figures for the number of civilians killed in Baghdad between 28 February and 5 April, and discovered that 29 had been killed in firefights involving US forces and insurgents. This was four times the number of Iraqi police killed. "These statistics demonstrate that the US military can and does track civilian casualties," she wrote. "Troops on the ground keep these records because they recognise they have a responsibility to review each action taken and that it is in their interest to minimise mistakes, especially since winning the hearts and minds of Iraqis is a key component of their strategy." (...) In her report, she wrote from Iraq: "In my dealings with the US military officials here, they have shown regret and remorse for the deaths and injuries of civilians. Systematically recording and publicly releasing civilian casualty numbers would assist in helping the victims who survive to piece their lives back together." Colleagues of Ms Ruzicka at Civic (Campaign for Innocent Victims In Conflict) have vowed to continue her work. April Pedersen, a friend, said: "We are all committed to ensuring the work that Marla did is going to continue." Ms Ruzicka, whose funeral service is to be in California on Saturday, was also remembered on Capitol Hill where Senator Patrick Leahy, with whom Ms Ruzicka worked to achieve almost $20m in appropriations to help victims in Afghanistan and Iraq, paid tribute to her. He said: "I want to... pay tribute to a remarkable young woman from Lakeport, California. In my 31 years as a United States Senator I have met lots of interesting and accomplished people from all over the world. We all have. Nobel prize winners, heads of state, people who have achieved remarkable and even heroic things in their lives. I have never met anyone like Marla Ruzicka." Meanwhile the Pentagon maintained its position that it did not keep numbers of civilians killed in Iraq. CLIP

Lord Sananda on the Battle of Light and Dark
Received by Sal Rachele
April 19, 2005
Greetings, beloveds! In the light of the Radiant One, in the Unconditional Love of the One True God, I once again greet you and send you my blessings and energy.
A couple of weeks ago, I brought a message through this channel that upset many of you. Some of you even went so far as to think you were not getting the help you need on your path. The memories of abandonment and the fear of this repeating itself is still within your soul records as it was imprinted in the Akashic as part of your experience of separation from God.
Let me assure you that this is illusion. Although all soul experiences are valid and real from the perspective of the individual soul, you remain safely tucked in the arms of God. You have always been and will always be safe in the Heart of God. You may dream of terror and abandonment, but this is not the truth. Beloveds, today my desire is for you to awaken from such dreams. They are the dreams of sorrow and misery.
You have not been abandoned. You are not exiled on a "penal colony" world of war and strife, destined to live out your days in abject poverty, slavery and manipulation by forces outside your control. Dismiss these beliefs today. They are not the truth, even though they appear to be very real.
The battle between the light forces and the dark forces is a battle of one illusion against another. Such illusions will continue to dance and play upon your mind for as long as you entertain them. In my books, "A Course In Miracles" I spent several hundred pages underscoring this fundamental truth. Perhaps you would do well to review that material and the many others I have brought forth over the last two thousand years.
I am not hidden and obscure. I do not couch myself in vague and misleading terms. I am not distant and aloof, reserved only for the few who are lucky enough to receive my dispensation. No, I am available to all and offer my love and my services freely and without reservation. When I stated that I do not meddle in the political and economic affairs of Earth, I did not in any way intend that to be interpreted as not caring for each and every one of you.
If you go back and reread my earlier message, you will find that my love and my concern are very much evident. It is out of my great love for you that I caution you about accepting messages that have subtle undertones of fear and judgment laced within them. I do not, and have NEVER judged any of you as unworthy or undeserving. I do not unfairly criticize any of my channels and messengers. I do not attempt to discredit any valid information. I only ask that you look deeper within yourselves and realize that my dispensation does not include blatant interference in your financial, business and political matters.
Every day the energy on your planet is increasing. You are becoming more and more of what you already are pure light and unconditional love. You are awakening to what has always been that you are loved by your Creator more than you can possibly imagine. Your Creator would never snatch from you that which is truly precious and necessary to your evolution as individual souls. Any illusions of being rescued from your plight are just that illusions. We of the Confederation do not rescue anyone because you are not in need of rescuing. You are in need of enlightenment. Enlightenment will solve ALL your problems. There is not one picture of misery, pain, despair, depression or sadness upon your world that will not be healed by enlightenment.
I feel I must address this issue of NESARA that some of your people are attempting to implement on your planet. I will say that the vision of creating an economic system that ensures prosperity and plenty for all is not misguided. You have the creative power and ability to raise every person on your planet into a state of cornucopia and plenty. However, until the mass consciousness of your planet is raised sufficiently to allow this to happen, you will be met with resistance from those who still believe in scarcity and limitation. This does not mean you cannot create peace and prosperity, but you will find that in the days and years to come, some will join your efforts and some will not.
The issue of economic prosperity does not involve direct intervention by members of the Confederation. This would be in violation of the prime directive of non-interference. The new dispensation and Divine Intervention is accomplished from within. It does not involve direct military maneuvering or economic manipulation. It does not involve our members running for office or materializing in military offices or corporate boardrooms. The beings responsible for beaming humans aboard spacecraft and materializing into military installations are not members of the Confederation. For your information, many are souls from other star systems. Some are benevolent and some are not. Many are from the Sirius B star system and are attempting to atone for mistakes they made during times past on your planet. Some are from the Zeta Reticulus star system, popularly known on your world as the "greys." There are others from Andromeda and Orion.
This is why I continually urge discernment. Although many of these beings are not hostile, some of them are. You cannot blindly believe any entity just because they use my name or the name of another celestial entity, such as Enoch, Melchizedek, Metatron or Mother Mary. The genuine celestial beings are real and are highly evolved Lords of Light assigned specific roles within the Universal spiral of evolution. These great souls will NEVER send you energy that resonates on a level of fear or coercion. They are enveloped in the Creator's 100% unconditionally loving light. They NEVER create division or separation. They do not judge anyone or anything as being less deserving of the Creator's Love. All of Creation is loved unconditionally by the Creator. There are NO EXCEPTIONS. Your Hitlers, your Saddams, your Stalins, they are all equally loved by God.
Beloveds, the day will come when you will love all of Creation with the same impartial and fair love that your Creator has for you. You will look upon those who are lost and wandering in darkness with the same love you hold for family members dear to you.
Darkness is an absence of light. It is not a separate force to be reckoned with. It only appears to be an opposing force when you are caught in the web of duality. The negative ETs that control the governments and economic systems of your world are allowed to remain in that place by fear and deception. When you raise your vibration to the level of the fifth dimension, they disappear, as all illusions do, into the nothingness from whence they came. Souls that adhere to principles of fear, manipulation and control may, for a time, appear to guide and direct your world. I assure you their days are numbered. They are numbered because you will awaken to the truth of your being and laugh at the absurdity of their agenda. Even your physical bodies will transcend their agenda. These holy temples or vessels you inhabit can be fed directly by God's unconditionally loving light. They do not need food or even water. For a time they need breath, but even that is temporary. You will immortalize these vehicles and use them wherever and whenever you need them. They will not be at the effect of the environment or the so-called "dark forces."
Beloveds, the dark forces have no power unless you give them power through your belief in their agenda. Today, stop giving them power and watch their kingdom wither away. Begin living the truths you feel deep within your being. As you live your truths, you will find opportunities for real economic, political and social change. Do not give up your hopes and dreams, but realize that your personal enlightenment will do more to manifest your dreams than any outer proposed solution. Many of the institutions of your world must fall away before the new can be implemented. Do not be afraid of this. It is an inevitable part of the awakening process. Illusions must fall away, for only truth remains.
Listen to these words, use discernment, and open your hearts to the truth of your being. Let not one illusion fall upon your holy mind to mar the beauty of Creation. On behalf of the Confederation, I am Sananda. Blessings to all.
