The Big Scoop Series #15: Bush Mob Clan Chastised - But the Cabal Thrives http://www.earthrainbownetwork.com/Archives2006/BigScoop15.htm
(To be archived on November 13, 2006)



1) SUMMARY

Every time a human being enters in a state of deep meditation and reconnects with the infinitely powerful realization of his/her oneness with All That Is, through sensing his/her indissociable unity with the Universal One, a mystical sense of bliss pervades his/her entire being as the soul consciousness comes at the forefront of his/her awareness and guides him/her throughout this moment of at-one-ment. Time ceases to exist and conscious perceptions expands to encompass vast vistas and profound insights. Breathing becomes imperceptible and tears often appears as ecstasy reaches a climax and tingling sensations radiates outwards in successive waves up to an ever higher crescendo of communion with the Unfathomable Presence and Infinite Love of God/Creator.

Reaching this state of consciousness, this sense of Oneness, is becoming easier nowadays as more and more people remember how to access this ever present Reality, thus reinforcing the energetic template of blissful communion that is gaining in strength on Earth with each passing day. We have, through these globally synchronized meditations, the unique privilege of being able to join weekly with a multitude of other souls, both from this plane of existence and from beyond, to assist our brothers and sisters in their long journey towards their inevitable return to permanent Oneness with All That Is. This ascension process is being exponentially accelerated as we approach the key Threshold point in the very near future when we will jump, with the entire collectivity of Life that forms this living planet, into a higher dimension of existence, never again to turn back and away from the guiding beacon of Love magnetizing us all towards the Return Point, the Alpha and Omega, the Fusion back into One-ness.

As we approach this dimensional Shift, we can already begin to sense the intricate streams of living Light connecting each of us with each other and with the entire Lifesphere and its myriad life-forms expressing and reflecting in their extraordinary diversity of sizes, colors and shapes the phenomenal creative virtuosity of the Divine Source of it all. When we are in this state of Bliss, we instinctively Know, without a shadow of a doubt, that our residual sense of separation, now fading faster and faster as we regularly reach up to this inner Light of loving Oneness, is vanishing from our waking consciousness to be replaced by a perpetual joyful dance with All That We Are, with the birds and trees, with the flowers and bees, with the multitudinous expressions, visible and less visible, of Life, the Supreme Magic at the origin of all manifestations.

As you enter in this state of Oneness, either spontaneously, whenever your consciousness shifts up into your Soul sense of God-self, or during our weekly meditation/communion meeting points in linear time, let all residual sense of separation dissolve entirely, and think/feel/be as One - as you truly and always are - through expressing the thought "I love us" and letting flow from your heart the unconditional Love for all that is part of this "I", all the plants, all the insects, all the animals, all the humans, all the angels, all the planets, all the suns, all the galaxies, all the universes of All That Is. From this adoration enshrined in Golden Love for the immanent perfection that You Are as One, let the flow of healing Light touch all aspects of You that need to be loved and nurtured back to Harmony through this resonant kindling of Oneness consciousness radiating from the God Self in you/all. Let the symphony of Peace formed through our common experiencing of Oneness resonate to the far reaches of this planet and beyond, and enable your physical apparatus to become the instrument of God/Creator, for the Highest Good of All.

"Look deeply at all the wonders of nature on this sacred realm we call Earth, then take time to look up at the stars, the sun, the moon and the planets, other peoples suns, a myriad of galaxies. Consider all of their natures also for it has been said that this uni-verse is not a collection of objects ... but a communion of subjects. Consider all of this, this living universe and all of its wonders, and realise that the same great Universal intelligence that decided to create them, also, very intentionally, decided to create YOU in all of your beauty and your uniqueness, and that this decision was of no less importance than any other. YOU have a purpose ... and a reason to BE. You are indeed a child of the Universe, one with the Earth, the stars and with your God. You are in every-thing."

UNIVERSAL ONENESS is an uplifting affirmation of the importance of who we are, both as individuals & as human beings in the realm of God.

"I ask only to be granted the liberty and sanctity of the Earth as my Mother. I claim the right of sanctuary in her arms, in her womb and on her breast, for I am a child of the Wood. I thank you Mother, who is the living Earth, for the life that is my body, the life that is my consciousness and the life that is your will also. I look upon your vastness, the beauty of your form and diversity of your works knowing that it is all of your nature. I ask and give thanks to you this day for the nourishment and health of my body, and the awareness of your whisperings that I may know of your nature also; and I ask of you your forgiveness for all the wrong-doings done unto you, for such has been the will of Man both yesterday and today. For I now know that only yours is the Earth, your body will and nature for all time and beyond. So be it, blessed be."

- EARTHRITE - PRAYER OF AWAKENING is primarily a self-affirmation of oneness with Gaia, the living Earth and 'Mother' of us all. However, it is also a prayer to Gaia that, in many ways, may be compared with the 'Lord's Prayer' of the Christian faith.

"This is why it is vitally important to send light to people whose attitudes or deeds you regard as detestable, to try to influence a “lighter” approach in their activities. Verbal or written pleas may or may not touch their conscience, as that layer of the soul atrophies when its messages are ignored time after time after time, and light reaching their “entire” souls is the only way to help them literally “get it.” While it is true that one to whom light is sent may choose not to receive it, it is just as true that ONLY light with its healing love energy can eliminate hatred, violence, oppression and warring in the hearts of humankind. Retaliation in kind never will do it! Think of Earth’s history – did the first war on the planet end all fighting for control and result in peace, harmony and kindness? No war ever guarantees anything except more of itself until light enters the scenario. The souls who are inclined toward darkness in their thinking and doing aren’t able to produce light themselves, so they can neither uplift their own motives and deeds nor influence any others toward benevolence. That’s why love must be generated elsewhere and sent to them. When it is sent in such abundance that you could almost term it a “love assault,” it cannot be ignored because the energy of it is too powerful. As the most powerful energy in the universe, love IS Creation, and where there is light, darkness simply cannot exist."

St. Germain - 7 November, 2006

The result of today's months events in the U.S. will again signal to mankind where their consciousness is heading, and its power to mould the future. The wish of the people cannot be ignored for much longer, and their desire to bring peace into the world is building up an energy that will bring about its manifestation. This will happen regardless of any attempts of the dark to subvert such a happening.

Understand that mass consciousness according to its vibration, attracts like energies. In your recent past this is why both the benevolent peaceful ET's and those of the dark were allowed to approach your leaders with proposals to help you move on. It was a question of choosing whichever group that enhanced and assisted them in their plan for mankind. The Illuminati ensured that offers to help establish peace and eradicate the war mentality were rejected. Instead, they chose to work with the Greys in exchange for rapid advancement in the technological field. Unfortunately their interest was one of self-aggrandisement, and interest in establishing a formidable power base to place themselves ahead of other major powers.

For over half a century you have been subjected to the result of the hidden agenda to enslave mankind. At present it appears to verge upon complete control, and threatens to remove the last vestiges of your freedom. However, there is a continual war waging at the higher levels, and it is a question as to whether the Light can overcome the dark energies. Presently, those of the Light are on balance winning and it is gradually weakening the dark, who in response now seek to impose the most draconian laws. It has to be asked as to whether the populace are taking notice of the erosion of their rights, and if they care sufficiently about their sovereignty to mount a challenge to reverse the likely outcome.

We see a state of flux where those of the Light are doing their best to maintain their stance against the dark, and it is effective. However, blind acceptance of further laws to rake away your rights, is often fuelled by the fear tactics that continue to be used to create opportunities for the dark. It is clearly a time to look hard and long at what is being proposed, allegedly in the interests of your security. It is regretful to have to say that the enemy is within as well as outside of you. For our part we empower those who are prepared to stand up and confront the dark powers, often at some risk to themselves. The period you are going through is to some extent going to determine how you will enter the New Year, which promises to be the most exciting time.

Exciting because we see the changes that must take place and will lead you into more peaceful times. It is a matter of how you create the opportunities for the changes, but be assured that no matter what happens in the next few months you will break out of the clutches of the dark. It has to be so, and for our part we shall be behind those who are destined to play an important role in establishing the new order. Much still happens behind the scenes and is largely kept secret, and approaches the dark forces in a way that is not necessarily obvious. We have the advantage of surprising them with our moves, and when we are ready they will succumb to the forces of Light.

The Light has slowly established a strong foothold on Earth, and as it grows exponentially it will not be defeated by any action that the dark can take. The Light will always be victorious in these contests, and the reality is that it is no match against it. Remember that these are the end-times and Man has all but completed this cycle. Your future lies elsewhere, and when the new cycle commences you will have become fully aware of your next round of experiences. Most of you are destined to go forward with the new Earth, and you will fully participate in the preparations for such a momentous transition. Some who have come to assist in these times, will return to their own homes in the higher dimensions.

The 3D Earth was always intended to carry you this far and no further, as it will have served its purpose. Mother Earth like you has earnt this opportunity to ascend and thus draw this cycle to an end. There will come a day not too far into the future, when you shall look back and understand the sacrifice that Mother Earth has made on your behalf. Your enlightenment on such matters will commence once the changes can fully commence. There is so much that you will need to understand, but foremost is the truth about yourselves.

You are all without exception great Beings, and you have played out many roles in the course of your experiences. Understand that is one of the reasons we encourage you to be non-judgemental, as you are all one together in the great experience of duality. It is soon to end as you should now be aware but it requires your full attention, because as Light Workers in particular you are carrying out important roles that will determine how soon the final act can commence.

Keep alert and be aware of what is happening around you, and do not allow your focus to be distracted away from your work to bring Light to Earth. You can be instrumental in bringing calmness and balance to those around you, at times when Humanity responds to the actions of the dark. Aggression often begets aggression and any such actions feed the dark energies. The Middle East still poses the biggest threat to mankind, but forces greater than those on Earth monitor the situation and are permitted to ensure that it does not get totally out of hand.

You are never left alone to face the dark and you will shortly see the action of those who are now openly opposing the Bush Administration, make advancements that will turn the tide of events. You are progressing well, albeit slowly but bit by bit you are closing in on those who have overstepped their positions of power. Leadership is a most important role, and in your current era those who have chosen these pathways are motivated largely by greed and power lust. The time is upon you when that shall change, and a new direction taken which will reflect the desires of the people who seek peace.

I am St. Germain, and tell you that you are about to embark on a new phase in your experiences and the truth shall prevail. Take heart from the signs of change that will herald an end to the actions of the Illuminati. They have taken you to the depths of depravation, and it shall engulf them in a quagmire of their own making. Soon you will rejoice as the old guard are removed, never again to despoil this beautiful Earth and the souls that gave up their Light to experience within this dimension. The journey is almost over, so go about your work with a new found energy and share your knowledge with others who are less informed. Fear must not be allowed to dictate how you perceive the coming months, because the dark will use every conceivable trick to entrap you in their web of lies and deceit.

I remain your Brother in Light and Love, and together with my companions oversee the affairs of Earth. Our Light is sent to you in abundance and we are just a thought away from you. In your darkest moments know that we are there for you all, and call upon us to soothe your brow and cast away your fears. We are Light omnipotent and in reality that is All That Is, and never forget your true status as representatives of the One Light in which all has its existence. I leave in Love and my energy remains with you so that you may take it into your very being. 

Thank you St. Germain.

Mike Quinsey

US election results in universal context; moving out of third density thinking; how love-light works.

Message from Matthew

November 9, 2006

S: Hi, Sweetheart! Let’s get going on your message.

MATTHEW: Thank you, Mother dear soul, for taking time from our family’s visit to do this. It will be brief and not our usual style, but I do want to get it out before mid-December when the last will leave.

Now then, thoughts around the world are focused on the results of the elections in the United States and speculations as to "What changes will we see and how soon?” So, at the risk of appearing like a political analyst—you have plenty of those—I shall speak about this, first as it is registered in third density consciousness where two aspects are being given serious thought. One aspect is widely known: The Democrats have wrested congressional control from the Republicans, and most informed people worldwide are, at the least, relieved. The second is comparatively unknown: Some members of both parties are either Illuminati themselves or are influenced by that global organization; the voting did not change that or their determination to continue their march to world domination, however futile that intention is except in their minds.

Nevertheless, even though more Democrats would have won and those who did would have won by greater numbers had the election been conducted completely honestly, the outcome would not have changed. Remember, the Bush administration doesn’t act on its own—it is simply the most visible and seemingly the most powerful element of society that secretly is managed by the Illuminati. With the growing dissatisfaction of US citizens about their president’s policies and the continuing exposure of corruption within their government, the Illuminati saw that a change of parties was necessary to “reflect the will of the people” to keep alive a while longer the façade of a “free society.” 

Another prevailing third density response to the election outcome is that surely now there will be a considerable change of course in US domestic and foreign affairs. To the contrary, there will be no change at all in the course that was set decades ago—it has been mightily reinforced! Now I am putting the election into a universal context, and I tell you that at this station and all others where evolved souls in spirit or body reside, there is jubilation as we watched the light intensifying. It started with the people of the United States anticipating election day with heartfelt desire to initiate steps toward peace, to clear their government of corruption, to restore civil and human rights to those who are being denied them, to uplift the lives of the poorest among the citizenry, to protect the environment so their children and grandchildren will inherit a safe and sane world. Their hopes for all of this continued to build and burst into elation as the election returns came in. Peoples around the world who just as fervently want peace and see the winning party as the catalyst added another huge measure of light to the brilliance emanating from the United States. This LIGHT that you collectively have been generating is what is vital about the advent of that election and its results!

We are not overlooking the feelings of those who are disappointed or what the Illuminati may think to do to keep their plans moving ahead. And here I am moved to tell you that, as much as we understand your keen interest in who wins a major election in any country and how people of all nations may benefit—and we understand as well the dark ones’ dreams, however shattered those will end up—it is time to serenely sigh "Aaaaah" and wend your way out of immersion in third density issues. Yes, by all means be informed, and truthfully so, but remember that your foremost purpose in being there is to advance your own and Earth’s evolution.

Mother, I think this is a good place to insert my response to Jean’s [Jean Hudon - mailto:earthrainbownetwork-subscribe@lists.riseup.net>earthrainbownetwork-subscribe@lists.riseup.net] request, so will you please do that and then I’ll continue along this line.

November 5, 2006
 
Mother, please pass on to Jean my comments about the material he sent to you concerning known and secret prison facilities around the globe. Thank you.
 
“In a few short years your world’s peoples will be living in peace, love and harmony, but in this moment it is true that some souls are treating many others in unconscionable ways. At this station there is no hatred for or judgment of those who order or willingly implement torturous interrogation, but we do have emotions even more heightened than yours and we deeply feel sadness and disappointment that these manifestations of darkness still exist. It is logical that since we have repeatedly assured you that the light is stronger than the darkness, you are asking, ‘Then why do they still exist?’
 
“You may recall that in several of my messages I have spoken about the souls who agreed to serve in seemingly ‘evil’ ways that would, however, lead to the completion of Earth’s karma that is the collective karma of her residents; then those souls would join the light. The opportunity to complete difficult lessons and learn—actually, not learn but remember their Oneness with All That Is—and achieve the balance needed to move into higher densities is why so many souls chose to reincarnate even knowing that the path would be difficult. 
 
“However, those who had agreed to serve in the ‘heavy’ roles became attached to their power and refused to relinquish it to join the light forces as they had agreed. They did this knowingly and willingly because in their arrogance, they felt that they could defeat Earth’s lighted souls through creating one fear-filled situation after another. They know that the energy of fear is incompatible with the energy of light, thus fear is their most effective tool and also the fuel that enables them to keep their power over others. Through this means of fear they have continued in control for several linear years beyond their soul contracts’ provisions. Yet they also know that Earth is ascending steadily into the frequencies where darkness cannot tolerate the light intensity, and as their realization has grown that they cannot reverse her determined course into the higher vibrations, their own fear has grown accordingly until this point when they are operating in pure madness. Without question, their days in power are numbered precisely because the light is exposing their atrocities. Between the frequencies in which Earth now is revolving and the in-pouring of light from your space family, the light is unstoppable, unbeatable. 
 
“What is so important for you to know is that each of you must choose whether to physically journey with your planet homeland. Your trip ticket is not automatic, but the ‘cost’ is within the means of everyone—simply, let the light fill you! It is as easy as recognizing and feeling grateful for the beauty of Earth and the blessings of your life; treating all life forms respectfully; being truthful, kind, generous, compassionate, forgiving, helpful—and fearless!”
 
Mother, I think that is enough, perhaps even more than enough, for Jean’s request. Please save this for my next message, when I will continue with spiritual awareness and guidance.

MATTHEW: Thank you. Indeed, your thoughts, feelings and actions dedicated to helping others and improving your world are an essential part of manifesting your own light and a vital addition to the light-beaming and technological assistance from our space family. We wish you could know Earth’s gratitude for your contributions, and the gratitude of your own souls! We, and beloved Earth too, want you also to know that your light will shine even more brightly when you rise above preoccupation with worldly issues, especially wishing for public disgrace and prosecution of the ones you see as responsible for all the world’s woes. Each of them will judge self in accordance with universal laws—let this be sufficient in your minds and hearts so you can live and love fully in each moment.

I think that everyone reading this knows that love and light is one and the same, only differently expressed, and as the total essence of Creator, it is the most powerful energy in all of Creation. You know that every soul in this universe as a part of our Supreme Ruler, by whatever name, is thus a part of Creator-Creation, and at soul level we are inseparable. It matters not whether we are in etheric or physical realms, in one galaxy or universe or another, the stage of our soul evolution, or our conscious acquaintance with one another: We are One. It is time to put yourselves squarely into this Oneness of All by releasing your third density thoughts and desires to punish those who have harmed many others and instead give and receive love—BEING the Oneness. Not only is this the sublime pathway of your spiritual journey, it is your ultimate gift to every other soul. 

Mother, it occurs to me that not everyone reading this may know all of that, and we know it is far easier for us to simply state those truths than it is for you to understand them. There is a chapter in one of the books about how love-light works that I think can be very helpful to readers. I see that you know what I’m referring to, so will you please copy that, and let it also be my loving farewell for now.

[The following is a chapter in Illuminations for a New Era.]

LIGHT AND LOVE IN ACTION

September 22, 2002

MATTHEW: Light is light, Mother, just as truth is truth, so it’s not as if your tacking “divine” onto light promotes it into “lightest.” Simply, light IS divine! The light attributed to the sun actually is from God through the Christed realm that was made by Creator, ruler of the cosmos, so regardless of how light is manifested within each person or how it is directed scientifically, it all comes from Creator. This self-generation of energy in light form is from that top technical expertise, you might say, so scientists who think they have gotten around the need for a supreme being are not as savvy as they think.

Light is the composition, or ingredient, of the soul, and it is the light streamers that identify each one regardless of its spiritual station, physical body or discarnate state, or location in our universe. Those souls referred to as “light beings” reflect it in their spirituality and morality, but even those who are referred to as “dark” retain a spark, otherwise they could have no life at all. The force of what we call “the dark forces” is the negative attachments to energy that cause fractures in their light streamers and eventually extinguish all light except that connective spark to Creator.

Light is within your spirit, the sensation you describe as feeling light-hearted because something joyful is happening or you’re remembering it. That sensation is the light coming from your soul, connecting with your mind and flowing through your body to produce joyful feelings or an Aha! inspiration.

Reception of light is the province of the soul, absorption of light is the province of the body. The body directs the light into the cells, which have been programmed by the DNA to accept it, but the soul may deny its entry. This is how the topmost dark forces are able to make puppets of the people who make free will choices with dark proclivity. Their souls voluntarily deny the light entry, which precludes absorption by the cells and thus adversely influences the souls’ DNA. Since DNA is the knowledge handed down from one soul generation to the next, the inclination toward darkness becomes more and more inculcated in that DNA until the affected souls arrive at lost soul status. (NOTE: Revelations For A New Era “Lost Souls” chapter explains how souls reach that status and can be redeemed or reabsorbed by Creator.)

S: When you have talked about sending light, I’ve interpreted it to mean that we automatically do that simply by loving people, but now I’m not sure that’s all there is to it. If not, then exactly how do we send light to someone?

MATTHEW: You’re certainly right about feelings of love for someone carrying light to that person, as love and light can’t be separated any more than two sides of a coin can be. Light is the visual, or external, proof of its conjoining love, which has its own evidence in your world. But there is no division of this homogenized energy into a light compartment and a love compartment. Oh, you could say that light is the makeup of a soul and love is a capacity of the soul, but how can one separate those any more than one can separate the soul’s linkage with Creator, the maker of no less than the cosmos?

But you’re also right in thinking there may be more to it than that, and even though you don’t have to understand the process of light-sending for it to be effective, you may want to know how it goes.

Think how you react when one of your dogs comes to nuzzle you or you hear one of your favorite symphonies or see a lovely flower, feeling as if your whole self is lighting up. That is what is happening! You actually are being filled with the light your body cells are absorbing simply by the experience. You didn’t have to do a thing to get that light feeling, and the cause that evoked it didn’t have to make any special effort to create your feeling, either. Simply by your soul’s being receptive to the light, you get it.

The light passing from one person to another is no different in cause and effect, but you may want to initiate it by directing your thoughts, which are aligned with your feelings, toward someone, and when you do, instantaneously that vibration is with that person. The energy flows from you along your thought form of intent and intensity and it goes directly to the “energy address” you want it to. The quality and quantity of light that is received is exactly that which you send. True, the receiver will not consciously know this, but the receiver’s soul always is aware of the incoming energy.

People known as “energy healers” act as vehicles for pulling in energy from the neutral universal pool, letting it flow through their souls where the love aspect and the direction are attached, and flow on to the person of that attachment. There can be no “false addresses” because the feelings are totally clear.

This is why it is vitally important to send light to people whose attitudes or deeds you regard as detestable, to try to influence a “lighter” approach in their activities. Verbal or written pleas may or may not touch their conscience, as that layer of the soul atrophies when its messages are ignored time after time after time, and light reaching their “entire” souls is the only way to help them literally “get it.” 

While it is true that one to whom light is sent may choose not to receive it, it is just as true that ONLY light with its healing love energy can eliminate hatred, violence, oppression and warring in the hearts of humankind. Retaliation in kind never will do it! Think of Earth’s history – did the first war on the planet end all fighting for control and result in peace, harmony and kindness? No war ever guarantees anything except more of itself until light enters the scenario.

The souls who are inclined toward darkness in their thinking and doing aren’t able to produce light themselves, so they can neither uplift their own motives and deeds nor influence any others toward benevolence. That’s why love must be generated elsewhere and sent to them. When it is sent in such abundance that you could almost term it a “love assault,” it cannot be ignored because the energy of it is too powerful. As the most powerful energy in the universe, love IS Creation, and where there is light, darkness simply cannot exist.

All in existence is manifested and connected through the energy generated by the continuous flowing of light-love being directed and received. There simply is no beginning and no ending, there just IS – the All That IS, the I AM, the Totality. And each soul is part of it. Each soul has the capability of holding light or darkness.

And that brings us back to why I’ve often told you it is imperative to send light – or love, if you will, as they’re the same – to those whom you regard as evil or cruel or despotic. This is not condoning what they do or being indifferent to the suffering they cause, and it certainly is not supporting their activities! What it is, is understanding that darkness is not the enemy of light or the opposite of light, it is the absence of light, and only by having that void filled can the darkness be overcome.

Withdraw the fuel of the dark forces by sending to them what is missing from their souls, something they cannot create themselves: Light. The soul in darkly-perceived reality believes it has been abandoned by its Creator. That soul is suffering from fear, and in its frenzy to rid itself of fear, its dark nature consistently turns to the false gods of political power and money. The presence of light is frightening because a dark soul knows it cannot survive in the light frequencies, but it doesn’t realize that it can thrive if only it will receive and absorb the light within its being.

That is why we ask that you send light to those beings. We also ask that you not judge any but feel compassion. We ask that you not feel negative emotions about their deeds, as those do not have any effect at all on those beings, but they do have adverse effects on those who harbor those sensations.

S: Matthew, you’ve mentioned this before, but it’s hard for me to separate my thoughts about the people who are causing such terrible suffering from what they’re doing, so I don’t see how I can be sending them light. Can you please help me with this? 

MATTHEW: Mother, you would turn on a flashlight to guide someone out of the darkness of uncertainty and anxiety onto a path where they are confident and secure, wouldn’t you? Those souls have lost their way and are fearful and foundering. Do not think of them as their deeds, but rather what you want for the world! Think of kindness, helpfulness and justness and sharing, think about the world’s people living in harmony, peacefulness and love and send those thoughts to those souls in darkness.

S: Yes, I see, dear. Will you please put light and love in the context of everyday life insofar as our being receptive to it and also how we can express it?

MATTHEW: I am happy to do this, Mother! Being receptive to the light brings spiritual growth beyond third density limitations. These limitations include feeling prejudice and hatred of differences, acting in greed, judging others for their choices, holding resentments or desiring vengeance, progressing by ruthlessness and cheating, controlling others and denying their free will, blindly following dogma or orders when instinct tells that they are not based in godliness. And the greatest of all prevalent third density limitations is fear.

Actually, all of those negatively-bound emotions and motives I mentioned arise from fear. Without understanding that, you could logically think that in changing directions in some of those areas while remaining fearful of personal or world situations, you are growing spiritually. That is progress indeed, but not in the measure you may think. Spiritual evolution is learning to live without fear. It is learning to live with full trust in the power of love, the most powerful force in the universe.

The word "love" has been so commonly used that it is severely abused, as in “I love artichokes” or “I loved that movie,” so first I say what love is not. Food and entertainment can indeed give pleasure, and I surely am not debasing enjoyments that can be uplifting, but those fleeting sensations are not love.

Neither is love the physical attraction of one party to another that leads to anxiety about the long-term security of the relationship. Love is not controlling a mate, it is not pitying or worrying about family or friends, it is not professional success, it is not possessions.

Love is not dependent upon fame or financial wealth or others' opinions of you. Love is not crusading for your beliefs or proselytizing. Love does not require understanding mystical spiritual teachings or all karmic components of experiencing or the continuum that you call time and space or the universal laws.

So, then, what is love? In simplest terms, love is God's sharing of Himself with all of His creations. Love is the healing force of the universe. Love is within the soul and needs only your allowance of those innate sensations of loving others and receiving their love for you. Love has no limitations, no boundaries to its capacity.

In expression, love is treating others with kindness, fairness, honesty, compassion, helpfulness, caring. If love can be said to have “ingredients,” then those are some of the ingredients of godly expression in action.

Knowing that you and God and every other of God's creations are inseparable is love. Knowing that Earth is a sentient, conscious life herself and respecting all of her life forms is love. Realizing that no one can know others at soul level and therefore does not judge them but rather does not condone an action seen as injurious, is love.

Listening to one's godself is love. Living the kind of life that engenders loving self is love. Feeling joy yourself when you see it in others is love. Doing something that brings joy to another is love. Forgiveness of self and others is love. Sharing your resources with full heart is love. Doing good deeds without attaching expectations is love.

Feeling peace of heart and mind is love. The quiet thrill of seeing a sunset or hearing a songbird is love, and a smile is one of the simplest and most radiating expressions of love.

In any or all of these instances and many others that you may encounter that instinctively you know are love in action, you are manifesting your love for and of God.

Mother, I don’t think I’ve told you anything at all surprising. But perhaps it is good to have some references as a guiding light in these times when darkness may seem to be overshadowing the magnificent abundance of love that is in your world.

THE EARTH

STRANGE AS IT MAY seem, we ascend through the earth. In our 3D minds, we may have envisioned ourselves being lifted up into the cosmos, or perhaps have always felt that Heaven was in the clouds, but in all actuality, it is really about Mother Earth and Father Sky. Yes, there are most certainly higher vibrating energies arriving from above, but also remember that there are also New energetic portals opening within the earth as well.

The earth contains many hidden secrets. Eons ago, many of us knew what would be coming in regard to a darker and denser scenario on the planet earth. And eons ago, these many were also the original creators of the earth as well. With this great love for the earth and this higher knowledge of the secrets of the earth in tow, these souls buried these higher vibrating secrets in order to keep them safe.

Then along came ascension. The ascension process involved raising the vibration of the earth, as well as every living thing upon her, including her inhabitants. It was time for the original blueprint of the earth to be restored. When the vibration began to rise through the ascension process, it signaled a time of opening on the earth. First began the opening of what had been concealed and hidden during the time of Lemuria. The area that opened first, then, was around the Hawaiian Islands and into Southern California. As the vibration of the earth continued to rise exponentially, other areas began to open as well…the UK, Australia, and Africa, to name a few.

In this way, the earth is then carrying a higher vibration herself. And in the very near future, we will be remembering many of her secrets. The earth is here to provide our every need. All that we could ever want is contained on and within the earth. She is the blue jewel, the keeper of all, and the doorway to other dimensions. As consciousness can only evolve through form, she is the form, as are we.

Our current society and ways of living have totally forgotten about where they are residing…on the earth herself. Outer technology does much for us that we no longer remember how to do ourselves. We have forgotten how to tell time by looking at the sun. We have lost our ability to intuitively know what the weather patterns will be. We spend very little time on the earth herself, as we are usually inside dwellings or in cars. We have become disconnected from the earth. We have forgotten how important it is to live in harmony with her ways…even though we reside on her!

The earth has the higher knowledge and wisdom of higher realms reality. The ancients knew this, and utilized the earth and the celestial bodies in their everyday lives. They knew when to plant, what planets were influencing them and when, and also knew what was to come. We are very much a part of the earth. We are made up of the same elements and can even consider ourselves a microcosm.

With the earth being such a higher vibrating entity, we could greatly benefit if we stayed continually connected to her. Studies have shown that just lying on her daily, immensely improves one's health, and even heals, as well as supporting a continual state of peace and calmness. If I do not have a daily connection with the earth, I get very wiggy and off-balance. Telling most of everyone, no matter what their spiritual orientation, that “The earth is my church,” always brings a nod of agreement.

The earth has much to tell us now. She is ready to reveal her long hidden secrets. If you have chosen this page, know that your ascension process can be greatly supported through re-connecting with the earth. This powerful, sometimes overlooked, and highly vibrating Source is there for us to utilize right now. The earth is our doorway to ascension. It is through her, that we can continue to be in alignment with the higher realms. By choosing this page, you are being encouraged to connect to the earth. Try and turn off your TV, computer and phones. Spend more time with your feet directly upon her, eat organic, go camping or hiking, work in your garden, take a daily walk in nature, become involved with sustainability, or simply partake in anything made from the earth.

Background of the Gaia Foundation (and the 5 great pillars of Live on Earth)

The Gaia Foundation of Australia started in Perth, Western Australia in 1987. Over the thirteen tears since it started it has attracted a growing support, largely because of the projects it has undertaken. The Foundation is linked to an expanding network of individuals and groups, part of the growing fabric of Gaia organisations operating around the world, in Britain, the USA, Europe and elsewhere. Members of the Foundation share three commitments -

1. Personal growth; healing and empowering ourselves in order to fulfil our true personal, community and planetary potential. We are much more than who we think we are.

2. Community building; strengthening the communities of which we are a part through community development and community education.

3. Service to the Earth; enhance the wellbeing and flourishing of all life. In gratitude we give back to Earth a little for what has been so unstintingly given to us.

The Members of the Foundation fulfil these commitments through engaging in Gaia Projects, either by creating new initiatives, working together with other Gaia Members, or by working with other organisations. Thus "Our intention is to lovingly empower ourselves and others to know oneness with Gaia, the living Earth, through taking courageous and joyous action, now"Through sharing the commitments and the intention the Gaia Foundation operates as a self-generating flexibly bounded organisation, in which most of the energy is held in the periphery rather than the core. In this way any member can contribute to the healing of our dysfunctional, unsustainable and increasingly violent global society, caused by a faulty relationship between humanity and the living planet. We do this by activities that demonstrate alternative ways of living are not only possible, but are essential for a truly sustainable civilisation in a genuinely post industrial age.

Background

The Foundation takes its inspiration and organisation from the Gaia theory, of James Lovelock, Lynne Margulis and others, which shows that the Earth itself is alive. The biological and geological cycles of air, water and earth, driven by the fires of the sun are so tightly coupled within the biosphere that its forms a self-regulating metabolism, an evolving "living entity". The name "Gaia" selected for this planetary "being" by the Nobel prize winning novelist, William Golding, is therefore especially appropriate as it was the name given to the Earth, oldest of the ancient Greek gods - the self creating mother of all beings.

Seen from within the perspective of Gaia, humanity does not represent some apex on a pyramid, but is merely one very recent blossom on the tree of life, a strand in the web of life. Human centred views that see the world as comprising inanimate and living resources intended for our use, is the view of a cancerous self-destructive civilisation, out of touch with reality.

For example, Gaia, over its four billion years of existence has created five great pillars, on which the whole of life on Earth depends. Human activity in a cancerous fashion is currently dismantling and destroying each of these Gaian creations.

Pillar 1. By burying as calcium carbonate and fossil fuels most of the carbon dioxide of the primitive atmosphere, it has prevented the Earth from heating, liberating oxygen and maintaining the temperatures which make complex life possible.

Human activity is intent on digging up the fossil fuels and returning carbon dioxide into the air as quickly as possible in such amounts as to make our climates increasingly unpredictable, threatening all life on the planet.

Pillar 2. The oxygen has created an ozone shield, which prevented the photochemical breakdown of water, preventing the Earth from drying out like Mars and Venus. By protecting the land from harmful ultraviolet light, life was able to leave the protective oceans and spread to every habitat on the planet.

Human activity, through the release of ozone destroying chemicals has created huge ozone holes over the poles, and has reduced global ozone worldwide, seriously threatening all life by increasing cancer rates for all living things.

Pillar 3. Interlocking nutrient cycles amongst soil microflora, fungi, bacteria and non vertebrates have created thick fertile soils which retain moisture, hold nutrients, limit erosion, stimulate plant growth and recycle all plant and animal wastes.

Human activity, through over-use of our soils and excessive dependence upon agro-chemicals for fertiliser and pest control, increases erosion, and reduces soil viability. Through the resulting desertification, increase in soil salinity and reduced soil structure, all life is threatening by removing this pillar.

Pillar 4. Forest ecosystems, hundreds of millions of years old, have evolved to maximize biodiversity of life, providing many millions of ecological niches which help generate biological resilience which dampens the destructive effects of climatic and other environmental fluctuations and changes.

Human activity through deforestation, clearfelling old growth forests around the world, is contributing to habitat destruction at hundreds of thousands of square kilometres per year. This is producing a huge reduction in biodiversity, pushing nearly sixty three thousand plant and animal species per annum, most of them unknown to science, into extinction, so undermining this major pillar of all life.

Pillar 5. Waterways and wetlands, created by the interaction of the previous pillars of life, have created sources of fresh, unpolluted waters that recharge aquifers and ground water systems, and through interaction with plants maintain a hydrological cycle that sustains and nurtures all life.

Human activity discharges over 70,000 new chemicals previously unknown to life. These are pumped, through sewerage and through the use of excessive amounts of agro and other chemicals in the soils. Huge amounts of fresh water have become polluted, creating algal blooms and eutrophication at the same time as releasing exo-oestrogen and other hormone disruptors which undermine the living pillar of our waterways and wetlands.

The view of Earth, as seen from the depths of space or the surface of the moon, offers us for the first time the view of Gaia as a whole, and is a most potent and hopeful symbol of our times. Humanity will continue to exist only by learning to live in symbiotic harmony with the Gaian processes which regulate planetary temperatures, keep our atmosphere breathable, our soils fertile, produce biodiversity, and keep our water drinkable, not just for humans but for all life. The planet can heal itself from our depredation as we rediscover our own interconnected wholeness. We can use this as a new ethical basis, to create high quality, low consumption lifestyles, which empower us to engage in compassionate action consistent with this vision of the living Earth. We then have a chance to simultaneously heal our shattered fragmented lives and tattered ecosystems, and bring lasting peace to the violent, rapacious and unsustainable global society.

What makes the Gaia Foundation unique is that its members create and control their own autonomous projects. Once a member has chosen a project, sharing it with other Gaia members helps improve its effectiveness and build the personal skills and self esteem necessary for it to have a maximum impact.

Thus, through its projects, Gaia members seek to --

• assist everyone to develop to their full potential, generating opportunities for individual education through stimulating creativity, innovation and fulfilment through awareness and cooperation in community life.

• create non-consumeristic high quality, low cost, personal and community lifestyles based upon a healthy interrelationship between the individual, the natural environment, the economy and social life

• stimulate flexible and resilient economic responses, careful of the social and environmental constraints of a world of diminishing and more costly land, water, energy and resources.

• promote a socially just, peaceful, participatory and sustainable world economy, nurturing personal local responsibility and self determination as the best means of overcoming major problems.

Throughout the world, groups of people are seeking to change their way of life to live in harmony with the rhythms of the living planet. Most find it hard to persevere, as so many social and economic forces constantly promote ever greater levels of consumption and waste.

The Gaia Foundation acts as a support group to help those who seek to live in such a saner, simpler fashion. The Projects of the Gaia Foundation provides a vehicle to achieve these goals.

From: http://www.thewoodedway.com/Journal.htm

QUESTION: In a world of violence, war and corruption, of lies, mistrust and conspiracy where the least considered people are the people themselves; a world led by multi-national corporations with ever-increasing powers of control over our governments, how do we, the people, respond?

Is it a time for global revolution? NO, violence cannot be met with more violence. Is it a time to protest in vast numbers in the streets? NO, this still begets violence and a million voices crying in the wilderness of government complacency will still not be heard.

It is a time to simply turn around and walk away.

QUESTION: What would happen in a free, democratic country such as Australia, if a 1000+ people simply pooled their resources to buy land, build homes, grow crops and generate additional income from living simply and creatively? In other words, a significant body of people who simply walked away from the 'mainstream' of society and began forming an entirely new society and culture.

It doesn't sound like anything new. Nothing that wasn't previously thought of in the 1960's hippy generation ... or is it? What if the body of people was actually highly organised, utilised the very best in alternative energies and other technologies, environmentally sustainable building practices, adopted meaningful spiritual and environmentally conscious practices in everyday life and treated the whole process of building a new society and culture very carefully, seriously and professionally? ... Not 'dropping out' of anything, but actually dropping back in to a more meaningful reality and truth. What if this highly organised body of people acted with total transparency, without fear or suspicion for all to see and learn from, encouraging and assisting other significantly substantial groups to form similar land-sharing co-operative communities?

What if an ever-increasing percentage of Australia's ... even the world's population made the same decision to simply turn around and walk away, and support each other to build entirely new and free lives in independent living communities? Is all this just fantasy ... or could it really be possible?

I guess you could call it a 'Revolution of non-compliance', but is such a decision also 'Sedition' in what is meant to be a 'Free country?'

INTRODUCING THE WOODED WAY
 
Greetings and well-come

I am Beau Ravn, a Gaian monk and Founder of the first Gaian Order of the Wood under the guidance of the Wooded Way.

The Way of the Wood is a series of spiritual truths, philosophies, teachings and other writings intended to promote an increased awareness of Gaia consciousness in everyday life. Over the next 12 months, this information will be made available to all through this website and other Wooded Way community activities.

The core tenets of the Wooded Way are as follows:

· We recognise that the Earth (Gaia) is a living being in her own right and that all living things upon the Earth are as individual cells of the Gaian body.

· All living things are symbiotically linked and have clear and distinct functions as part of the Gaian body. As such, it is impossible to kill any living thing without, in some way, doing harm to both Gaia and, ultimately, the self as a part of Gaia.

· All life on Earth originated and evolved out of the Gaian Oneness and, as such, Gaia may truly be called the ‘MOTHER’ of life.

· Gaia and all of the cells of her body are are also connected to, cared and provided for, fed and nurtured through the cycles, energies and interactions of the sun, moon and greater universe we call ‘God’. As such, God may equally be called the ‘FATHER’ of life.

· All Humankind, both as individuals and as a species were born out of and evolved as a part of the Gaian Oneness and, as such, also have clear and distinct functions as cells of Gaia.

· All people are all innately aware of these functions, and that by releasing the ‘Conditioned Self’ to reveal the ‘Primal Self’, our true function and purpose as a cell of Gaia is revealed to us.

· Each of us only exists on Earth to firstly discover our Primal Self and through this, our Prime Purpose; and then, secondly, to truly ‘BE’ that purpose.

· BE-ING can only be achieved through presence. Presence is to be totally focused on who and where you are within the life experience. It is to truly be ‘HERE’.

· This can only be achieved in the moment of BE-ING. It is wholly experiential, not intellectual, and thus, can only be found in the ‘NOW’.

BE – HERE – NOW

These are the 3 states of true enlightenment through Gaia Consciousness.
It is the WAY OF THE WOOD.

· All life is sacred, and to take life may be likened to destroying the cells and organs of our own bodies. As such, we are also aware of the Primal needs and health of our own bodies through healthy, nutritious foods, clean water and air, and the need for healthy, loving and meaningful relationships with each other.

· We of the Wood are given the purpose and calling of providing support systems and networks to build healthy, environmentally sustainable, Gaia Conscious communities throughout the world in order to learn to BE, and pass that knowing on to others through creative and inspiring expressions. This is the recognition that to be creative is to awaken the Primal Self to the essence of the Great Creator.

· No-one ever needs to feel or be alone or disrespected any more. We all have a purpose and a reason to BE. Such is the Way of the Wood.

The ORDER OF THE WOOD then, is a dedicated body of men and women who are devoted to achieving a state of true Oneness with Gaia and, thus, to commune directly with her through the art of be-ing (the Primal Self).
