Welcome Palestine


A victory for humanity

Palestine

See who voted for Palestine

by Avaaz Teamposted 29 November 2012 23:48

The UN general assembly has just voted overwhelmingly to recognise Palestine as a state. An astounding 138 nations chose to support the path of peace and justice.

Just weeks ago, the vote was expected to be much closer, with Israel and the US lobbying hard to deny Palestine key European support. But in the face of major public pressure and vigorous campaigning by the Avaaz community, countries such as France, Spain, Belgium and Sweden decided to vote yes to statehood for Palestine. In the end, just nine countries ended up on the wrong side of history: Israel, the US, Canada, the Czech Republic, Panama, Palau, Nauru, Micronesia and the Marshall Islands.

Celebrate this historic moment, share this map with everyone.

[Update: This map has been corrected to show New Zealand also voted in favour, rather than abstaining.]

PressTV: UN vote on Palestine: A humiliating defeat for US, Israel –

by Gordon Duff

Today the world became anti-Semitic, a world of “holocaust deniers,” all planning to build gas chambers, open concentration camps, all arming to push the Jews of Israel into the sea. The inane rhetoric began days ago and will reach a crescendo that no one will hear.

This is the old story told a million times, one that has lost its magic it seems.

A Message from Albert Einstein


From Evernote:

A Message from Albert Einstein – Father of Relativity* ~ THE THEORY OF ASCENSION AS IT FITS INTO THE PUBLIC ARENA | Lightworkers.org

Clipped from: http://lightworkers.org/channeling/171226/message-albert-einstein-father-relativity-theory-ascension-it-fits-public-arena

There are three Phases of Development in reference to an Awakened Soul within the Human Construct.  They are:

HALL OF IGNORANCE
 
HALL OF LEARNING
 
HALL OF WISDOM
The Hall of Ignorance represents mankind; unawakened mankind; those that have no clue that they are beyond just their physicality.  There are fully within the third dimensional world and are considered Unaware people,  they are asleep in reference to their higher consciousness, have a tendency to blame others for their problems, they do not look within, they are egotistical, they are addicted to their things in life:  drugs, alcohol, dysfunction, etc and do not see there is a way to get out as they never look within to their problems.

The Hall of Learning is when an individual starts to realize that there is more to themselves than their physicality, their body, their mind and their emotions.  Many individuals just waking up in the last 20 years represent this level.  It includes those that have many gifts as the Indigos, Star Children, Crystalline, Golden, and Rainbow children.  They can make things happen easily and effortlessly without the physical world’s outer creation.  They have strong psychic gifts.  This level can also pertain to individuals that are in the self-help programs; they learn the skills to change their thoughts, like “The Secret” teachings; but it does not go beyond that until one day they are met by a master or master(s) usually within the physical world, but Spirit can also have this affect on these individuals through their dream states and visions.  This is when they awaken up to themselves and realize they have much more potentiality than they ever realized, but with that realization comes responsibility.

The Hall of Wisdom is when an individual becomes an initiate; they walk unto the pathway of Mastery; learn about teachings of the Masters through the ages, search within books and knowledge for more information.  They learn that there is much more to being aware than psychic abilities; they become very involved in global healing and accelerating that healing as they become more aware themselves.  They are a master in training.

Now there are several sublevels within the Hall of Wisdom.  It includes the initiatory process but each individual has free will to go as far as they choose.  Some will stop and not move forward.  When an individual gets to the 4th initiation, they have stepped unto the process of Mastership.  Now this can include individuals on the self-help level; it depends on what they want to access in their lives and how they want to go about doing it.  Each step of the ladder is an acceleration of the Light of the Christ.  Individuals are becoming the Christ within.

Once an initiate decides they want to continue, then they accelerate themselves to receive more frequencies.  When they reach the 5th initiation, their Higher Self is their guide.  There is no turning back and the initiate is indoctrinated into the Brotherhood of White Light.  But there are requirements and prerequisites to stay within the Brotherhood.  They must follow the rules of selfless service by serving themselves first.  They must go through each of the initiation processes to fully accept their own mastery within.

Now many get to this space and hold themselves there.  It means that they can help individuals but truly do not step further upwards into the ladder.  Everyone has the ability to acquire this level but not all choose to do so.

THE TYPES & CHARACTERISTICS OF INDIVIDUALS WITHIN THE CATEGORIES OF THE HALL OF LEARNING AND THE HALL OF WISDOM

When an individual starts to realize there must be more to their life than what they are living, they leave the Hall of Ignorance and walk into the Hall of Learning.    This level is massive as it includes many types of individuals such as: Self Help students, Newly Awakened Lightworkers and/or Rainbow, Crystal or Indigo’s, who possess many gifts and share them with others. (They can create teleportation, telekinesis, are mediums, psychics, healers, etc.)  As Newly Awakened Ones, they do not necessarily take responsibility for their actions; they can be very controlling with energies, lower entities can be in this space.  The Universe is at their command and they feel the will to do whatever they want it to do.  They have free will but also may lack compassion or responsibility about what they are doing or creating.  It is on a momentary basis and can fall and crumble just as much as it can be built.  The lower energies are typically guiding them completely.  Some stay in this area for a long time and other individuals see that there is a deeper level to who they are as a being.  (This area of expertise would be considered the lower aspects in each of the Seven Rays of God for those of you studying them.)  These Ones are bringing forth the dynamics of Universal existence, but there are too many other influences that are getting in the way of their full progress.  Not to say that these individuals are not powerful; in fact, they probably are very gifted in many ways but they don’t use it with Universal Laws.  This school of thought I put forth is to help individuals to see that there is a deeper reasoning process with what they possess which helps them to wake up even more through the process.

When the Learning phase has been initiated, and an individual sees that they must go further in their studies, they step into the Hall of Wisdom.  This is where an initiate starts to walk the pathway through their Higher Self and not just their intuitive self of the physical body.

The types of people include self help teachers, gurus, and individuals that follow higher learning.  They have now walked into the pathway of mastery as an initiate.  They teach about responsibility and learn that everything has a purpose in life.  The initiate that is growing through this learns about the Spiritual Hierarchy and the reasons behind why things happen, they apply the teachings to their life and step unto the initiation pathway.  Each step on the pathway will take them deeper unto their mastery within.
Once an initiate has walked into the 5th initiation, they are accessing through their Higher Self.  THIS IS WHERE MANY STAY.  They feel good; they have accomplished a way of being that satisfies them as compared to where they were, so they don’t move further, they think this is the epitome of everything.  Most Lightworkers are in this space.  They do not go further through the process.  This is where the deep work gets deeper.  Some may go further; but if they are not ready to handle what they need to acquire, then they will feel lost. The Higher Self will slip backwards, and they will see-saw through the initiations they had already gained.

When one moves to the 6th initiation, everything is stepped up deeply.  The initiate is now inducted into the Brotherhood of Light on a trial basis.  They come in and out of Shamballa in their dream-state for teachings and wisdom.  This is the hardest initiation as there is more responsibility which is put upon an individual in this level.
2
Once an individual moves into the 7th initiation, then they are fully inducted into the Brotherhood of Light.  Now you can be at the 7th and not be fully indoctrinated into the Brotherhood.  You must prove your worth to be part of the organization.  Many masters do not make this level and filter back into the 5th and sometimes the 4th level due to the extreme responsibility that is put upon the soul to act within their highest wisdom through the physical existence.

This correlates with the dimensional frequencies.  Second and third dimensional beings are unawake, fourth dimensional awaken but still fight their process including the old demons within and around them, fifth dimensional beings see that love is the only answer but their full I AM presence must be accepted within the bodily structure still.  Some choose to stay at this level as they do not realize the potential to move through the processes.  It must be understood that mastering the first seven Rays of God are a pre-requisite for this level.  Many are not able to go deeper with that work but still access their Higher Self in certain periods of time.  Nothing is guaranteed within the ascension process and this is why so few have done it as yet.

Many will not make the 5th dimensional level even in their consciousness by 12-21-12.  Some may feel it and go back and forth through the process.  Ascension is truly the full activation of the physical merging of the Lower Self with the Higher Self.  It can be done on a consciousness level and yet not be fully actualized within the physical.

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR THE GATEWAY INTO THE NEW WORLD FOR DECEMBER 2012?

I wanted to share this information to the public arena and have chosen Meleriessee, as the messenger to apprise individuals of where they might be in the ascension process, so that it can be seen that work needs to be done in order for more awakened souls to walk physically into the arena of the 5th dimension.  The level of physicality is something needing to be realized; that it is a Learning Process and a Privilege to acquire it.  People cannot simply say that they are arriving in the New Earth just by being positive and showing love in many ways.  This is a major part of it but the true depth of this information is about interacting with others on a personal and professional level.

Many individuals are deepening their skills of awareness and allowing the energies to fully infiltrate within their physical existence but the process goes much deeper than they realize.  The depth of the work needs to be done in order for every individual to fully accept their physicality which allows the lower mind and emotions to no longer exist in that world.  It has a lot to do with the Cellular Memories within the Physical Body and the Etheric Body to co-exist with the Higher Self and I AM Presence.  These memories can be painful and erratic which can cause an individual to not be able to access the “LOVE BUG ENERGY” each moment.  Then, at this point, there comes a creation of division between all the four bodies instead of them merging into the One Light that each of us has the ability to create.

I believe it is time to share this information in depth because individuals need to take a look within their essence and see where they might be holding other parts that they thought had been taken care of previously.  The process of initiations is necessary and cannot be side-stepped to move into the New Earth frequency.  At this moment in time, November 8th, each individual is being prepared for these cycles of rebirth.  It is up to each individual soul whether or not they will walk through the process.  We know that the energies are going to split starting in December and moving forward towards 2013, 2014, and 2015.  The Christ Consciousness will be the consciousness of the New Earth and this earth is going to either reflect or deflect that essence.  It will determine the cause and effect that happens within the planet and how it is going to change.

Individuals that choose to accept their new roles as deemed appropriate from their Higher Self’s will fully have the capability to access so much more than they realize.  Some have gone through these processes and still have a lower self activating within their higher self.  This is a dangerous combination as the warriorship attitude results in the process which then causes great confliction.  There is no confliction on the New Earth frequency so all these elements are going to be weeded out.

I know you want me to share my views on December 21st on the effects upon the planet.  I will tell you that there will not be major destruction of the planet as previously foretold.  There will be areas that will have tremendous upheaval and this goes along with the individuals that are accessing the panic, fear, and uncertainty within their world.  This six-week period is a warning signal for each person to fully step into their own essence as the Earth is now going to be allowing that frequency to permeate within her essence.  It is important to be in places of power energies; vortices in order to connect with the integration of the changes that will be happening.  Many will not be happy as what they think will arise out of them is like a bad virus that has been brewing for eons of time.  The more positive an individual allows themselves to be, the more powerful the energy for them.

I suggest that each person takes this time to fully activate their Higher Self and accept their divinity of Light that they are.  They will be affected because what does not serve the energies will be expelled from the body.  And many people upon this planet hold within them a seed of de-struction and dis-ease within which flows into the Earth.  So we require as many individuals as we can muster up to understand this process; the better Gaia will accept her new Divinity.

This is just the beginning of the frequencies.  It is not going to happen all at once as it will be a process time to integrate the essences for each human being upon the planet.  Now is the time to learn more about your inner self and walk with others that are doing the same.  The Mastership Pathway is available to each and every one who chooses to walk within it.  The challenges are great, and the rewards are greater.  But it goes into the depth of your soul to be able to access the changes and allow it to happen.

We have many new awakened individuals upon the planet who are very gifted and want to share their gifts.  But this pathway must be acquired through great responsibility and diligence within their spirit to allow the changes to come first within and then share with others.  It is a most imperative stage of development.

The Ones that are doing this work now are being considered for leadership roles within the New Earth and within the Golden Cities of Light (in which there are 22 of them).  They are areas that represent the 22 Rays of God and will be considered the High Priests and Priestess Domain upon the New Earth.  There are many other cities of light that are also part of the New Earth energies but the cities I am referring to are the Domain of the New Earth Brotherhood of Light and are considered the High Order of Oneness and all the other cities will be the Light Cities underneath of the Golden Cities.  The 22nd City of Havalannchee will be the highest frequency of light representing the Platinum Ray which is going to be ignited on December 21st over the Mt. Shasta, California, USA area.  This city is aligned with Shamballa and will house all the Spiritual Masters of the New Earth.  The other 21 cities fall under the domain of this Crystalline City of Light.

I feel it is important to share as much information and to as many individuals that it is possible.  The Gateway to the New World on December 21st is just our beginning.  It will be an internalization of mass consciousness that has never occurred previously and we want to share as much information as we can to help everyone through this process.  It is very exciting for each of us within the Unified Whole and the Spiritual Hierarchy that Heaven on Earth is occurring now.  It is imperative to understand that it will not just happen and individuals must be prepared for their own awakening of Light in each moment.

Don’t Believe Them – People ARE Beautiful!

25th October 2012

By Zen Gardner

Contributing Writer for Wake Up World

This isn’t said enough when it should be healthily swimming in the public perception.

People are amazing, wonderful, beautiful and fantastic….and all at the same time!

Don’t believe the mass media bullshit. If your negativity and cynicism have the best of you, stop yourself and others from listening to the media, their phony headphones and violent music, TV and video games, their implants, induced thoughts, and their conditioning.

Humanity is essentially good. We are not  predominantly driven by sex, money, aggression, hatred and self preservation. Screw the social engineers. Contrary to what we’re being shown and told via our manipulated media we are wonderful and amazingly free and loving!

Our passion is to love and appreciate the wonderful people in our lives and those coming in to our lives! And bask in awe at our wonderful, however attacked,  beautiful environment while exploring the never ending infinite worlds of consciousness!

Most of all our impulse is to care….and that’s what they’re trying to shut down!

People Rock!

Look what humans do! They give birth to and sacrificially and lovingly raise and nurture families. They don’t kill and abuse them, they love them! They strive to make a better planet work in unison with their needs in utmost respect for their surroundings. They show compassion in the face of suffering, the help their fellow man when it’s within their power.

They naturally, instinctively care for each other!

That is the heart cry of true, really true, connected humanity. And that’s the vast majority.

Despite everything we’re being bombarded with, you and I are beautiful creations. Sure there’re plenty of challenges and even outright given-over bad folks, but that’s the exception, not the rule like they make it out to be!

Just imagine the pain on both sides…he’s probably a young father…

People Are Naturally Loving

Sorry to pop some people’s media induced bubbles but people are good. Of course there’re all kinds and exceptions (heavily exacerbated  by the oligarchs) but the great predominance is loving, humble and wonderful people.

It’s the NON-people, the invading control freak psychopathic unfeeling slavish lords of darkness that screw things up. And the sleeping need to wake the hell up that they exist and to what’s being done to their heads.

After all, what does this bombardment of the ugly self image do? It makes people believe it’s real and therefore mimic it! Our swallowing of this media portrayal brings their ugly, carefully sculpted anti-human plan to life.

Don’t comply!

Our resistance is imperative and we need to tell the others that they’re being programmed to be, and see, ugly humans when they are NOT!

Want a perfect illustration? The zombie phenomenon. They’re branding us at an even LOWER level, believe it or not. If we’re not terrorists, any other so called deviant activity or response will be considered other-worldly! And THAT’s been programmed through horror movies and their burgeoning vampire craze.

And sex? Talk about debasement. Disgusting dehumanization in full display.

The Ugliness Is Them, Not Us!

The media mogul bastards are giving all of us a bold-faced lie…and have been working hard at it a long time. And the more people believe it the more they’ll morph. Zombie parties and media exaltation of such case in point.

Sure, there are problems and deviants, but how many degraded families and people do you know? Of course there are issues, but c’mon! It’s easy to tear down and criticize and assume the worst when that’s the trendy thing.

What does the fear mongering media report? Death, murder, insane sensational behavior and anything negative, violent, weird and debasing.

Take a hint …we need to wake the hell up.

Damn Them. And Beware.

It’s deliberate. We’re in a bizarro upside down world of the oligarchs’ making, and it’s wrong, wrong, wrong. Watch your every step. And especially your mind and attitude! You’ll slip into a funk before you know it and you’ll be thinking like them and not even realize it. It manifests in hate, confusion, negativity, judgementalism, cynicism and discouragement.

And hopelessness.

If you stay in their vibe you’ll feel the same hate, rage and thoughts of violence that they do. That’s their frequency. That’s their incubator.

Stay on your toes. Love and conscious, aware positivity takes some doing many times. Learning to spot these negative symptoms helps you snap out of their trance.

Be aware, and be bold about it.

The Great Mind-Numbing Contradiction They’ve Foisted Upon Us

Here we have in our society this surface “oh-so-caring” child nurturing veneer. Marketers use it to pull on our hearts with drives for children’s hospitals, breast cancer awareness, innocent baby care and, of course, their pharmaceutical love for the sick.

The “bleeding hearts” are all over children and cancer and pink stuff and races and blah blah blah. Again, like religion, channeling the people’s genuine care into pointless causes that are engineered.

And what do they actually do? Murder innocent children by the millions worldwide, starve nations of unwanted indigenous peoples, sterilize millions with genetically altered food and enforced vaccines and generally poison and beat down all of humanity into chemical and biological submission.

Are you falling for this scam in any way, shape or form? Because it’s pretty damn clever and pervasive!

The globalist instructed and driven Amerikan military machine alone has massacred innocent children around the globe for decades. Over 500 thousand in Iraq alone whom Madeleine Albright wickedly called “necessary and justified” years ago. Besides that think of the disgusting pogroms of Russia, Armenia, Cambodia, China, the World Wars, etc.

We’re talking sick, sick sick.

They’re playing chess with human lives for entertainment and control while laughingly playing on our weaknesses.

Need I say more?

So? What then?

Love each other. Learn to see the good and avoid the ugly being shoved in your face. I’ve been guilty of this getting to me and it’s become a real alarm bell for me. I hope it will be for you too. It’s not easy in this environment.

As you take it apart you realize how insidious their vibe and techniques are.

They declared war on us a long time ago.

Time to bring the battle to them by shutting down any and all connections to these bastards and reversing the flow. And helping others realize the seriousness of our predicament and learn to take personal action by checking our attitudes, thoughts and intentions. Right actions will follow.

One day it was a time for real town hall meetings. Now it’s a time for radical conscious awareness practice in our virtual community.

Love always,

Zen

P.S. Do not miss David Icke’s “spiritmark” event on October 27th that’s now going to be streamed on line. [HERE]

It’s more than a talk, it’s a consciousness convergence, and you can participate as mightily as you want. Some very powerful things are going to go down, and up, that day…be a part of it! Make a difference by contributing your energy!

No Short-Cuts In Our JOURNEY


Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 6/28/12

‘Unlocking Earth’s Quarantine’

.

Do not look at life manifestations beyond this 3rd dimension as life manifestations that may resemble your human vessel and your spirit essences, as this is not always the case, and we will say that this is not frequently the case. There are many sentient and non-sentient beings throughout the vastness of space and through the multiple dimensions of existence. There are those beings and entities that do not resemble the human species in any way, and this includes their outer shell as well as what comprises the being within, including the spiritual, emotional and mental makeup of the being or entity.

.

Here in your world there is a mix of beings who are like one another and beings who are unlike one another. The beings that are unlike our human brothers and sisters are beings who do not belong here, as they are not from here and they have not taken the proper course of spiritual, mental and emotional development to get here. These beings took a shortcut to get here, and it is this shortcut that we mean, through our mission, to rectify. It is our intention to, in effect, send these beings back to where it is they came from and where it is they belong and have belonged for many, many eons of time. They have been permitted to dwell here on your planet in your reality due to a quirk of the mechanisms that govern your physical plane, and they have trespassed onto what is your land.
.
These beings have not learned to treat others with respect and kindness, love, caring and empathy. They have not learned the virtues of mercy, forgiveness and charity. They do not understand what it means to be a member of a community and what responsibilities this gift bestows upon one. They have taken so much for granted, and this behavior is only natural as they have not learned the lessons that would enable them of such gifts. All gifts must be earned, and they must be earned through trial and tribulation, hardship and struggle, and lessons designed to teach and to bring about the higher good and the best in an individual being. When shortcuts are taken, a being has not prepared themselves for an existence within higher dimensional states, and it is here where a problem occurred and allowed beings who did not learn the necessary lessons to enter this domain and thrive here, putting a stranglehold on this planet.
.
We the Galactic Federation of Light, detected a problem here many eons ago and we took fast and appropriate steps to quarantine this entire planet, not allowing these beings to spread to other worlds that exist within the same dimension as your Earth. This quarantine has been in effect for many eons of time, far longer than many of you may realize that civilizations have thrived here on this planet. We would tell you that there have been civilizations on this planet going back hundreds of thousands of your years and not just the few thousand years since your Sumerian and Egyptian civilizations which many today falsely believe was the launch of civilization on this planet. This is hardly the case, as your civilizations that thrived in your Mesopotamian regions were considerable latecomers on the stage of this planet.
.
There have been civilizations on this planet for so long that many who have called this planet their home at one time have ‘graduated’, if you will, to higher dimensions and are now Pleiadian citizens, Sirian citizens, Arcturian citizens, and citizens of many different star systems and even different galaxies. These beings who have previously called Earth their home, and who certainly can be considered your brothers and sisters, are now here again with you. They are at this very moment with us as members of our organization the Galactic Federation of Light. This is truly a homecoming for these beings as Earth is not a new planet to them, it is their ancestral home. They lived here for many lifetimes, learning the lessons and living through the experiences that garnered them their higher education and spiritual wisdom that now allows them the freedom to call the higher dimensions their home.
.
This is how it works, there are no shortcuts permitted. All of the beings that are members of our organization have earned their right to exist within the higher dimensions and have further earned their right to be members of our organization. They have taken no shortcuts, and if you personally meet the beings who are members of our organization you can be assured they are very advanced beings, fully developed in many different areas. You will never have anything to be concerned about in regards to your safety or well-being when speaking with or working with a being from a higher dimension and a being of our organization. We would like you to always remember this, and we would like you to remain cordial and polite at all times and show respect to all beings that you will meet, just as they will show respect for you.
.
We do not wish for you, our brothers and sisters, to insult the grace extended to you by exhibiting fear of any of the beings that are members of our organization that you may meet simply because they do not look the way you do. Not all beings can choose their own forms, and not all beings have ‘grown up’, if you will, with a human body. Please remember this always, and we are very confident that you will do your best to exhibit your best behavior at all times and demonstrate to beings from throughout the universe just how far the human species has advanced since we had journeyed here last many eons ago.
.
You have come so far individually and as a collective and have also come so far in a very short period of time. This is a rather stunning and sparkling development, and many worlds have sent representatives here to study you and find out just how you managed to grow so much in such a short time frame. Many worlds of this universe marvel at your accomplishment, and we say to all of you of the human family “Job well done and you can all be proud in how far you’ve come and what you have achieved together.” We will be with you soon and we will speak to you in more detail about your journey and what it has taken you to reach the plateau you stand upon today. We feel many of you will be quite surprised at what you have lived through and all the incredible experiences you have had that have made you the strong, wise and courageous beings that you are today.
.
Until then, always remember that you have all come so far and you have all come so far together, and it is this togetherness that has allowed all of you to become what you are today. As we have said, there are no shortcuts and none of you, our brothers and sisters of the human family, have taken any shortcuts and you all deserve recognition for your achievement and respect for all that you have accomplished to arrive at this point and the doorstep of an incredible new and glorious adventure.
.
We are your galactic and universal brothers and sisters of the Galactic Federation of Light.

Switch Off The Damn TV!


Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 6/25/12

‘Television’s Dark Agenda’

.
What is excitement and what is relaxation? What we would like to discuss with you today, dear ones, are your choices to engage yourselves in either activities and leisure that will lead to feelings of excitement, raised blood pressure, a raised pulse rate and raised awareness of your bodily senses, or will you seek refuse in activities and leisure that will allow your body to rest , to heal and to remain quiet and calm while you soak in energies that are so vital to you for healing, for growth and for the strengthening of your physical vessel which includes the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of yourself as well as the physical compounds of your vessel.
.
We see so many of you running here to there, hustling and bustling, trying to make the most out of and squeeze the most out of every moment of your every day, and we suggest to you that these patterns are not conducive to what will bring out for you your higher good and your healthier bodies. We suggest to you to instead seek more quiet time, seek more periods of rest and relaxation where your bodies can remove themselves from constant stimuli and better heal themselves and rebuild themselves, better strengthening themselves for the next steps on your journey. This is what we like to see more of. We would like to see more of you reading books rather than watching television, as television and its constant bombardment of visual and sonic stimuli leads to a diffusion of your energy and leaves tattered holes all throughout your being, through each layer that is your combined vessel.
.
Seeking shelter from this storm that you call television is something that we of the higher realms sincerely recommend, as there are serious and hazardous effects accruing in you from watching this device that plays upon addictions and sometimes mind control techniques to get you to remain watching it. This tool of the cabal’s has been carefully honed by very devious and very intelligent and cunning minds to keep you sitting in front of it while it is used to control your thought patterns, your habits, your tendencies, and feeds you input of what they, the dark ones, wish you to believe, believe you need, you fear, and is your reality. We wish for you, dear ones, to muster the strength and the determination to get up and walk over and turn this destructive device off. If you could find a way to get this task done you would be doing yourself such a tremendous favor that in many ways is unclear to you at this time, but you can be assured that we will share what we know about this device and the techniques employed through it by the dark ones once we get better acquainted in the days ahead.
.
This is one of the simpler tasks we have before us, but on the same hand we feel this will be one of the more difficult tasks to successfully accomplish for many of you, as this addiction of television runs deep and runs wide throughout your societies all over your world. Our plan is to uproot this weed of your society and replant in its place a flower of higher education and development on the spiritual, as well as academic level. We intend to share with you entertainment of a different type. Entertainment for your mind that is not entertainment based on drama and violence, murder, lust, fear and destitution, but instead will entertain you through the means of self growth and strengthening of every part of your vessel. The improvements that you will experience are great, and we feel your television sets will become an exercise program for you while at the same time you rest and enjoy quiet times of relaxation.
.
Do you see the difference here? Do you see that as it is today in your world, although you feel you are relaxing in front of your television sets, your body is hardly at a state of rest and relaxation that will allow it to better heal, grow and strengthen its many layers? Instead, every part of you is being worked out significantly and stressfully, yet unlike one of your exercise programs, you receive no benefit or reward from this work out. What you do receive are the negative effects of sitting in front of this device which includes stress, heart problems, mental and emotional difficulties, and damages to your eyes, your ears and to your senses of emotional feel.
.
This is what you are receiving when you turn the television on and sit for a few hours watching your favorite programs, ravaging your body in so many ways that it will take us quite a while to explain this fully to you. Our teams of scientists and physicians have monitored your televisions, its programming, and the effects it has on you, and we have come to firm conclusions that we feel will surprise and even startle many of you and leave many of you in a feeling of great disbelief that this has been going on for so long right in front of you without many of you taking notice of this agenda by the dark ones.

These dark ones are quite cunning and they are, some of them, very intelligent, and for what they lack they use the money stolen from you and pay those of your populations to do the work for them that they could not do themselves. Some of this technology that is used against you has been developed and put into being by those of your own people and not of the types of beings that they truly are. These members of your own people, your own races, your own religions, your own countries, your own communities, in many cases have been tricked or conned into doing this sort of dastardly work, though there are a few cases where simple greed and the offer of a few dollars was enough to turn certain individuals against their own kind. We see this choice that these individuals have made with curiosity, as we see this selling out of one’s own friends and family for what is often small amounts of wealth as a choice that none of us of the higher realms would ever make, but we do remind ourselves you are all on a journey to learn and to grow and we do see everything as a learning experience.
.
We hope to see many of those scientists, technicians and researchers who have turned against their own people and who work so hard for the agenda of the dark ones realize what they have done and continue to do and switch sides in the days ahead and help educate their brothers and sisters and shed bright light on everything that they have been doing. We feel this will help us greatly in our task to explain this to your people through a voice of believability, as we feel it is in this area of believability that will be such a great challenge for us as we feel many of your world simply will not be able to find a way to believe what the dark ones and even their own people have been doing to them and their families.
.
For today we will only say that you may wish to take our word for this and get up right now and turn your television set off, even if it is just for a few hours more than you would normally have the set off. You would be doing your bodies a great service, as it will begin to immediately heal from the damages that will only begin to attack you again when you make the choice to turn your television set back on.
.
We are your friends and your family, and we wish you to know that we care so much about you and only want what is best for you. Until tomorrow, we are the Galactic Federation of Light.

Opening into our new blossoming reality, we are poised to begin the commencement of many of the projects and programs we have discussed with you throughout the past months. What we see for you and your people is an entirely new approach to your everyday tasks, chores and problems. We offer you solutions in the way of advanced technologies and sounder reasoning when it comes to planning and implementing these new systems.
.
Many of your current systems are archaic, and some of them should not have been implemented in the ways they were in the first place. What we, the Galactic Federation of Light, would like to do is tear down some of these systems and start over completely from scratch. Naturally, this will be a great endeavor and will take many hands and many minds to see a successful accomplishment of this task. What we would like from you is a sign that you are dedicated and committed to making these wide ranging changes all across your planet. We would like to hear from you to learn how many of you would be interested in working hands-on on these many projects.
.
In some cases, there will be those of you who will be working directly with members of our organization. There will be others of you who work indirectly with us, but who will not meet us face-to-face and board our ships for any length of time. There are many reasons why some of you will be working with us while some of you will participate in some of these projects but not work directly with us. One way to see this is that a trust has needed to have been built throughout the past months and years since we have been communicating with you through our channels. We have monitored your online social networks, and we have devised at least some sort of list of who we feel have earned a right to work directly with us based on your work ethic, your commitment, your ability to work with others, and other factors that have weighed in our decision-making.
.
Please do not feel you are being judged in any way, as this is certainly not the case. We do not judge any of you for anything, that is the bottom line. What we would prefer is to simply work with those of you who we feel we could trust even though we have never worked with you before, or that we feel would be a compliment to our team. There are also those of you who have worked with us before, and as we have said, there are those of you who are, beyond this illusion, members already of the Galactic Federation of Light and, of course, in such cases we look forward to our reunion with you and working again much closer than we are at this time.
.
There are many projects, programs and tasks needed to be accomplished here to right this ship that is listing in her waters, and there will always be many opportunities for many of you to earn a spot on our roster and begin to work personally with us or even one day become a member in full honor and standing with our organization. At this time, we only wish to get the ball rolling and begin some of the more pressing projects we feel are important to get underway. Some of these projects will take many years to accomplish and some even decades. There are some smaller tasks that we, together with you, should be able to accomplish far sooner. It is some of these tasks that we will also begin in the days ahead, and we look forward to begin to splash a few of these dominoes down.
.
Your journey has been a long one, and through much of it we have seen the best in you shine, and at times, the worst that humanity can offer come to the surface. We see today and the days before you as an opportunity for you to let the best of what each and every one of you are shine brightly for the entire universe to see like a burning torch leading the way of your people through the cold dark night of your isolation, an isolation that is about to end once and for all and forever. You have been quarantined, as it is said here in your world, for many long years. Throughout this isolation, you have been left to find solutions to your problems on your own. The problems that have needed solutions were created by you, and therefore, we felt it was important for you yourselves to find the solutions to your own creations.
.
In some areas you have done very well for yourselves, and in some areas great problems have arisen from your failure to adequately derive solutions to the problems that have been mounting for many years now since your Industrial Revolution period in your history. In the great scheme of things, this period in your history is very minute, yet it has left indelible footprints in the path of your journey. Some of these footprints are deep and have caused great problems for you. We have been monitoring your progress and also closely monitoring the problems that have arisen from some poor planning and implementation, and from what we see, mostly due to greed on the parts of your industrial barons who only saw profit, power and control as a means for their motivation.
.
What we would like to do is remove these barons from power by removing the necessity for the utilities and the systems that they control. This is one of the larger projects on our ‘To- Do’ list, and this is one of the projects that will take the longest time to fully complete. Some of these systems are so deep rooted into your society that only a complete overhaul of your systems, and in some cases your society, will be the cure for these ailments. This is where we need your full cooperation and as many of you as possible who are willing to participate in these projects. What we are talking about is your transportation systems, your waste disposal systems, your water treatment systems, your food production systems, your healthcare systems, your systems of safety and well-being, and your systems of problem control which would entail natural, as well as even some man-made problems in your world.
.
Taking a look at this list we are confident you will immediately see how great a task some or even all of these initial projects are. There are many other tasks as well that demand attention immediately, and we are also confident you can understand why we feel it is needed that we begin to make contact with many of you and enlist the help of many others to begin at least some of the initial phases of some of these projects. What we would like to do is just get an idea of how many of you would be willing to participate in these projects. We ask you at this time to leave us your comments under this message just to give us some idea of how many of you can be counted on to take on these tasks with us in the days ahead. As we have said, we are fully monitoring your online social networks and we have teams that are making lists and compiling data on your responses to our offers and to the information that we are sharing with you through our channels. (You may leave a comment under this message posted anywhere throughout the Internet, or if no comment field is provided, you may comment under this message at my blog @ http://ascensionearth2012.blogspot.com . Please do not send me a private message through Facebook or e-mail, as the GFL will not read our private mail as they respect and honor our privacy at all times.)
.
At this time, this is the only way we can communicate with you. In the days ahead this will change, you can be assured of this, as a more direct line of communication will be opened. We will not discuss with you at this time what this will entail, but we will say that there will be little question as to the authenticity or accuracy of these messages any longer, as all will know that indeed it is we, the Galactic Federation of Light, that is speaking to you. For today, it is your choice whether you choose to believe these words you are reading or not. This is one of the choices that are all yours to make and we honor and respect each and every choice you make as always.
.
We feel a lot of the difficulties that are being experienced at this time could be alleviated if more of you could simply find a way to better trust the information that is being provided to you. We see so many of you questioning the integrity or the abilities of our channels, and we ask you at this time to try to find a way to suspend your systems of disbelief, distrust and suspicion, and instead just try to focus on the possibility that these messages are genuine and look at them with an open mind and heart, and just try to feel that someone is trying to get through to you and share something with you.
.
In the end, there will be no question as to our existence and that we have indeed been communicating with you for some time now through channels that we have selected based on their abilities and their track records to get jobs done that needed to be completed. This is why these channels have been chosen, there is no other reason, and there is no ulterior motive to why these individuals were selected to carry forth our messages. There is no secret or mystery to this, it is very simple. We needed to get our messages to you and we found a few individuals that we felt we could count on, that is all. Try to see this and understand this and take less shots and make less attacks on our channels, as what they are doing is providing you a service for an avenue of information that comes from us and has been written for you, nothing more nothing less, and in the days ahead the identities of our channels will be made clear to you and you will know that the words you have been reading are genuine communications from us of the higher dimensions.
.
Thank you for your time today, and we look forward to reading your responses to our offers to participate in some of the large projects we have discussed with you at this time. We will be compiling lists of those of you who have shown a willingness to participate in these initial projects, and we look forward to working either directly or indirectly with many of you.
.
We have to put aside our differences and rest our squabbling and debating with each other, as these forms of communication are proving pointless and without merit and reward. What we would like to see more of you doing is communicating openly without fear of reprisals in the form of unwelcoming comments and insults. We would like to see more of you participating in these discussions pertaining to our presence here in your world and of the many projects we will be undertaking with your assistance.
This is the matter at hand at this time, there is no other matter as pressing or important, as much rides on these many projects and they necessitate our introductions and our assistance that can only be lent you through a working partnership with us.
.
Please allow all others to express their opinions and points of view without censorship or reprisal, and allow others to express whatever it is they would like to without your criticism of their beliefs or viewpoints. If you could all do this it would make our job much easier amassing the data that will lead to conclusions as to whether the time is now right to make our move and begin on these many projects with you. This is what we ask you at this time. We would like to see more peaceful and constructive conversations amongst you instead of harsh words and criticism sent back and forth. This will help us, and in the long run help you, as nothing can be resolved through bickering and argumentation. Nothing ever gets resolved that way, and that is one of the lessons you have come here to learn.
.
We see many of you have learned this lesson and do try your best to conduct amicable conversations with others even in the face of ridicule and insult to your character and your beliefs. We thank all of you who have been making a sincerest effort to better communicate and convey your ideas and thoughts to each other  with respect for one another and each of your points of view, and tell you that this is the way to effectively communicate that will lead to getting things done here in your world.
Nothing can be accomplished until you learn to get along with each other. This is the starting point, the cornerstone of the foundation that your new world will be built upon. We do not wish to come in here and help you build a new world upon a faulty foundation that has been built upon argument, dissension, hatred, and attacks on one another. We wish instead to help you construct your new paradise on a firm foundation built on respect and honor for one another’s beliefs and points of view and upon lines of communication that are open, free of censorship, ridicule, judgment, personal attacks and mockery. This is a foundation we will not help you build upon, and we ask you to firm up your foundation now before we together begin building your new world upon it.
.
Thank you for your efforts in this area, and we assure you that given the right amount of effort you will see rewards, as so much can be gained and accomplished through open, free, and friendly lines of communication. We look to see improvements in this area, and we will again be monitoring your online social networks and look forward to seeing how well you can communicate with each other and to us, as we do take note of many comments directed towards us and our reasons for being here.
.
We say to you again that our reason for being here is to assist your world make the many changes necessary that will see you advance to the level of a galactic, rather than a planetary, society. There comes a time in each and every planet’s journey throughout this universe when a point is reached of rising to the next stage of evolution, and it is now your turn, the people of the planet you call Earth, to take center stage and rise to the next level of accomplishment and reward. It is your turn, this is your opportunity, and we suggest to you to do what you can to take full advantage of this opportunity and all that is possible for you from it, as these stages of a planet’s evolutionary path are very far between and take many eons of time and much effort on the part of its people to reach.
.
All of you together have ridden your planet around its track through this galaxy and your galaxy’s track through this universe, and all of you deserve credit and the reward for such effort and hard fought accomplishment. Your reward for such trial is now at hand, and we say to you the hard times, the difficult times, the struggle and hardship through lack, through poverty, through hunger, through war, through violence, through dirt and pollution is now on the verge of becoming a relic of your past experience that has made you the tried-and-true being of immense knowledge, wisdom and power that you are today. This day is yours, and nothing would make us happier than to see each and every one of you enjoy it to its fullest. You have earned it, and all the prize that comes with it.

We are the Galactic Federation of Light.

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Lives

For A Life Changing Newsflash!

All your life you have waited for the good news, and that day has finally come. Very soon you will witness large-scale mass arrests all over the world of many men and women who you have come to know as the world’s political and financial leaders. These arrests will reach high into the U.S.  Government and include many members of the financial and banking worlds. Many of these names you will immediately recognize, though some you may not immediately recognize, but all have actively taken part in serious crimes against the people, leaving our nations bankrupt why they looted our hard earned money.
.
These arrests are groundbreaking, and these arrests are Earth changing. Humanity will finally be free from the tyrannical control of these powerbrokers commonly known as the Cabal. These arrests should come as no surprise to many of us as we all know deep down that there is something very wrong with this world, a place where so many go to bed hungry at night while a few others possess not millions or billions, but trillions of dollars, pilfered from the labors of the people. There has always been enough wealth on this planet to go around, yet these few men and women have been dividing up for themselves virtually all of the wealth of our world, leaving only crumbs for the rest of us to compete over. Upon these arrests, this will now change.
.
Many new projects will immediately be implemented under the new leadership of men and women of the highest integrity who are committed to restoring our world to the utopia it once was, governed by a constitutional and true democratic process. There are many men and women dedicated to this cause throughout the US Government, agencies at the Pentagon, militaries, the financial sector, as well as the private business sector who have committed so much of their lives to this effort, and they are so eager to present to humanity our new system of abundance that they have been working so diligently on in secret for years. As part of these proceedings, vast sums of wealth that have been stolen from the people will be redistributed through programs that will benefit greatly every man, woman and child on the planet. No one will be overlooked, and no one will be forgotten.
.
But there is more.
.
Upon the arrests of these many members of the criminal Cabal, the second phase of this operation will commence. Today our world is being visited by many spiritually enlightened beings who wish to openly reunite with their ancient family. These spiritually advanced men and women are assisting in the disarmament of the criminal Cabal which has controlled much of the world’s military and possessed highly advanced weapons systems.
.
These advanced ancestors of the human race appear just as we do, although there are other beings that we shall meet as well that do not look like we do. All are ascended spiritual beings who are only here to assist us make the changes we all know deep down inside need to be made. These beings are the original planners of this world, and are the same advanced civilizations that built many of the great archaeological mysteries such as the pyramids in Egypt. They are not strangers to us at all, as we are their ancestors, all of us.
.
A very important social experiment has been conducted here over many years and each of us has been a part of it. We have been left here, seemingly all alone, to work things out for ourselves. This experiment is now over and it has been a tremendous success. We are now about to reunite with our brothers and sisters from the stars and be welcomed into the greater Galactic Community.
.
As they are many worlds that go by many names, it is easier to refer to them at this time by the name of their peaceful alliance: The Galactic Federation of Light, although other spiritually advanced organizations are here as well including the Ashtar Command.
.
Upon these arrests and our reunion with our Star Family, all the problems of our world will be quickly and smoothly brought into the alignment of our new Golden Age society through the leadership of souls of pure hearted intent. Through a worldwide community effort, all wars, hunger, poverty, illness, and pollution will soon be a thing of the past, as will our lives of daily servitude. Advanced technologies will replace our need to labor our lives away, and everyone will be free to pursue every creative dream they have ever had.
.
All this will begin with the imminent arrests of the many members of the criminal Cabal, and these arrests will take place as soon as a suitable number of our planet’s citizens are aware of what these proceedings will mean for our society. This is why you are reading these words today, as many members of your human family are doing all they can to share this news with you and do their part to usher in our civilizations new Golden age of peace, freedom, and prosperity for every man, woman and child throughout our world.
.
Please participate in this great cause by sharing this message on Facebook and other online social networks. This is your chance to really make a difference and be a leader of your fellow man. If we all do our part to spread this news, we will all begin to witness these high profile arrests all around the world, and this will be your sign that everything you just read is true.

Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 3/1/12

…At this very moment, your task at hand is to see to it that as many of your world as possible become informed as to the life-changing proceedings that are about to affect each and every soul incarnate in your world. These changes will be quite startling for many of your people, and what we are attempting to accomplish is to prepare as many as possible for these changes. It is not as easy for some to have their entire lives changed so abruptly as it may be for others…
.
We see so many of you coming together and doing your part to spread the news of the imminent arrests of those of your criminal Cabal and of our reunion with you, our family, and we are very heart warmed with your efforts to bring forth what is that you desire. This has been an important area that we have spoken of and even stressed on many occasions. One of your tasks here on Earth was to reach the understanding that nothing comes to you that you do not bring to yourself. This universe has been designed that way, and it pleases us so to say that we see so many of you have reached this understanding and that you are also making efforts to allow others to reach this understanding as well. – GFL

Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 3/2/12

Many of you will be quite astonished of the crimes committed against you, and we say to you to look beyond anger and any need for revenge and instead focus on adequate justice and rehabilitation for these souls. Many souls today who are very positive members of their Galactic communities were once aligned with the dark and fought against the forces of light, but there is always an opportunity for one to find their way back to the light and every soul deserves this chance. You are all children of your Creator, and as such all deserve all the guidance and nurturing required to bring you up into the light. We suggest to you that you find a way to allow these lost souls to receive the restructuring that will allow them this chance. There may even be some of you that were given just this opportunity and a chance to find your way back to the path into the light. – GFL

Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 3/8/12

We ask you to stay alert and prepare for many changes to your daily routines as much of your lives are about to change, and these changes will continue until the lives you know today will be barely recognizable from your new lives as members of your Galactic community. We look so forward to extending our hand and welcoming your planet to our Galactic society, and we tell you that you are earning your membership each and every day. It has been a very long journey for your people, and we tell you that you will soon see how every moment of it has been well worth what you have gone through personally, as well as a collective society. Many worlds have experienced what you are about to experience, and we are very excited to be a part of this. We have also worked very hard to see you reach this point, and our reunion together will surely be cause for a mutual celebration. – GFL

Message from the Ashtar Command 3/7/12

Continue to lay the groundwork for these changes by making this information available for all to see who wish to see. This is all you can do for them, and we do not ask you to do anymore. It is important that as many as is possible be at least aware of these events as possibilities, whether they wish at this time to believe it will ever happen. This is all we intend, as it is not important for them to accept this information as fact. All will discover in due time that you spoke your truth. There will be no denying this. – Ashtar Command

Message from the Galactic Federation of Light 3/3/12

Soon your sun will recede below your equatorial line, and when it emerges again your world will have begun its new day. This is how it will happen for you. You will go to sleep at night and when you awaken you will have found yourself emerged in the proceedings you have worked hard on manifesting and that have been spoken of many times. You will receive no further advanced warning than the notice we have been furnishing you for a while now. You have been asked to prepare and have also been told that the time to be prepared is already upon you.
.
The changes you wish to see in your world will come as a thief in the night. One moment your world will carry on with the hustling and bustling of the old paradigm, then suddenly, nothing that you have come to know as your reality will ever be the same. This is the kind of change we are talking about, and this the kind of change you will experience. This is why your task to prepare yourselves and as many other souls as is possible is so important to the smooth functioning of this operation. Please continue to spread the news of what is about to transpire. We greatly appreciate your efforts and assure you that it will be soon that this phase of your mission will be completed and all that has been discussed will be yours. – GFL
.
Remember to always be there for your brothers and sisters who may succumb to fear upon news of these arrests as they will number greatly, and many will find it quite startling to know what has really been going on around them. Help them to understand that all is well and these arrests were necessary to get your world back on track, and that your world is now free to prosper as should have always been the way. – GFL Mar62012
.
These arrests will soon begin to be broadcast through many of your media outlets, and we are pleased with the efforts of so many of our Lightworkers to clear the way for these announcements by spreading the news of these arrests and what they will mean for the people of your world. We are very encouraged by how these revelations are being received by many of you, and we say that we are very pleased with how many of your world immediately understand that these arrests are just what you needed to begin to cure the ills of your society.- GFL Mar0712

SaLuSa – Mar 05 2012

A few weeks in your present time will see so much transpire that you will need to be alert, and we of the Galactic Federation are in the forefront of it. We work very closely with our allies, who have been very successful of late in speeding up the action. We do have targets for concluding each part of our activities, and we hope to make substantial progress over the next two months. At least you are now aware of our successes, and know what has now begun is leading to the eventual end of the Illuminati.

SaLuSa – Mar 07 2012

More of you are beginning to believe that the changes are becoming significant, and the details are there for those who are prepared to search for them. After several disappointments a stage has now been reached where events have moved on, to a point where the dark Ones cannot stop or reverse what is happening. Their days are numbered and they face the embarrassment of losing their position and wealth. Often both have been gained through bribery and corruption, and for them the unspeakable is happening. Not only are they being forced to give up their position but to lose their ill gotten gains. Justice will be meted out according to their crimes, and a valuable lesson will have been learnt. They are treated no less or differently to any other soul, and will make good the damage they done.

SaLuSa – Mar 14 2012

As you are noticing time is speeding up faster than ever, and a week seems a mere few days, and each week is filled with such a great potential that will change your lives. The media is still restrained and little of what is really happening reaches your eyes or ears. However, we are successfully working towards an open free Press, and once the restrictions are lifted you will be overwhelmed with reports about everyday events. When it is safe for us to appear with you, then regular T.V. programs will take place, allowing us a platform to tell about our plans and your future. The most important aspect is to calm peoples fears and prove that we come in peace, and that we are your future selves. Everything is planned is for your upliftment and benefit, and whatever changes take place you will be the ones to gain far more than you are likely to lose. Read more >

Wanderer of the Skies

You have much to look forward to in these coming days as more and more dominoes fall at a much greater and accelerating pace. Already, you are beginning to see the turn of fortune occurring on the financial front. This will be followed quickly by the media, where many will begin to pay from their crimes and many more will turn towards open, honest, and investigative reporting. This, in turn, will be followed by a move to “clean house” with your political leaders and the stepping forward of those who consciously have begun to awaken within the halls of power in your many governments to set straight their role as stewards of society.

Sacred Economics


This is the only way forward for humanity… an economics that restores to wholeness our fractured communities, relationships, cultures, ecosystems, and planet.

The converging crises of our time all arise from a common root that we might call Separation. Taking many forms — the human/nature split, the disintegration of community, the division of reality into material and spiritual realms — Separation is woven into every aspect of our civilization. It is also unsustainable: it generates great and growing crises that are propelling us into a new era, an Age of Reunion…

Money is a key element of the story of Separation that defines our civilization.
.
Excerpts from Chapter1:
.

In the beginning was the Gift.

We are born helpless infants, creatures of pure need with little resource to give, yet we are fed, we are protected, we are clothed and held and soothed, without having done anything to deserve it, without offering anything in exchange. This experience, common to everyone who has made it past childhood, informs some of our deepest spiritual intuitions. Our lives are given us; therefore, our default state is gratitude. It is the truth of our existence.

Even if your childhood was horrific, if you are reading this right now, at least you were given enough to sustain you to adulthood. For the first years of life, none of this was anything you earned or produced. It was all a gift. Imagine walking out the door right now and finding yourself plunged into an alien world in which you were completely helpless, unable to feed or clothe yourself, unable to use your limbs, unable even to distinguish where your body ends and the world begins. Then huge beings come and hold you, feed you, take care of you, love you. Wouldn‘t you feel grateful?

In moments of clarity, perhaps after a narrow brush with death, or upon accompanying a loved one through the death process, we know that life itself is a gift. We experience an overwhelming gratitude at being alive. We walk in wonderment at the riches, undeserved and freely available, that come with life: the joy of breathing, the delights of color and sound, the pleasure of drinking water to quench thirst, the sweetness of a loved one‘s face. This sense of mixed awe and gratitude is a clear sign of the presence of the sacred. 

…While I believe in the fundamental divinity of human beings, I also recognize that we have embarked on a long sojourn of separation from that divinity, and created a world in which ruthless sociopaths rise to wealth and power.

Today‘s economic system rewards selfishness and greed.

Circulation is a better word.

…While gifts can be reciprocal, just as often they flow in circles. I give to you, you give to someone else … and eventually someone gives back to me. A famous example is the kula system of the Trobriand Islanders, in which precious necklaces circulate in one direction from island to island, and bracelets in the other direction. First described in depth by the anthropologist Bronislaw Malinowski, kula, which literally means ―circle,‖ is the lynchpin of a vast system of gifts and other economic exchanges. Marcel Mauss describes it as follows:

The system of gift-through-exchange permeates all the economic, tribal, and moral life of the Trobriand people. It is  ― impregnated‖ with it, as Malinowski very neatly expressed it. It is a constant ―give and take.‖ The process is marked by a continuous flow in all directions of presents given, accepted, and reciprocated. [2]

While the pinnacle of the kula system is the highly ritualized exchange of ceremonial bracelets and necklaces by chiefs, the gift network surrounding it extends to all kinds of utilitarian items, food, boats, labor, and so forth. Outright barter, according to Mauss, is unusual. In any event, ―Generally, even what has been received and comes into one‘s possession in this way—in whatever manner—is not kept for oneself, unless one cannot do without it.‖3 In other words, gifts flow continuously, only stopping in their circulation when they meet a real, present need. Here is Lewis Hyde‘s poetic description of this principle of the gift:

The gift moves toward the empty place. As it turns in its circle it turns toward him who has been empty-handed the longest, and if someone appears elsewhere whose need is greater it leaves its old channel and moves toward him. Our generosity may leave us empty, but our emptiness then pulls gently at the whole until the thing in motion returns to replenish us. Social nature abhors a vacuum. [4]
.
… Unlike a modern money transaction, which is closed and leaves no obligation, a gift transaction is open-ended, creating an ongoing tie between the participants. Another way of looking at it is that the gift partakes of the giver, and that when we give a gift, we give something of ourselves.
.
…gifts expand the circle of self to include the entire community. Whereas money today embodies the principle, “More for me is less for you,” in a gift economy, more for you is also more for me because those who have give to those who need. Gifts cement the mystical realization of participation in something greater than oneself which, yet, is not separate from oneself. The axioms of rational self- interest change because the self has expanded to include something of the other.
.
…It is ironic indeed that money, originally a means of connecting gifts with needs, originally an outgrowth of a sacred gift economy, is now precisely what blocks the blossoming of our desire to give, keeping us in deadening jobs out of economic necessity, and forestalling our most generous impulses with the words, ― “I can‘t afford to do that.” We live in an omnipresent anxiety, borne of the scarcity of the money which we depend on for life—witness the phrase ― “the cost of living.” Our purpose for being, the development and full expression of our gifts, is mortgaged to the demands of money, to making a living, to surviving. Yet no one, no matter how wealthy, secure, or comfortable, can ever feel fulfilled in a life where those gifts remain latent. Even the best-paid job, if it does not engage our gifts, soon feels deadening, and we think, ― “I was not put here on earth to do this.
.
Even when a job does engage our gifts, if the purpose is something we don‘t believe in, the same deadening feeling of futility arises again, the feeling that we are not living our own lives, but only the lives we are paid to live. ―”Challenging” and ― “interesting” are not good enough, because our gifts are sacred, and therefore meant for a sacred purpose.
.
That we are indeed here on earth to do something is essentially a religious concept, for conventional biology teaches that we have evolved to be able to survive, that any effort toward something outside of survival and reproduction goes against our genetic programming. However, one can make a cogent neo-Lamarckian case that the view of biology as consisting of myriad discrete, separate competing selves—organisms or “selfish genes”—is more a projection of our own present-day culture than it is an accurate understanding of nature.[13] There are other ways of understanding nature that, while not ignoring its obvious competition, give primacy to cooperation, symbiosis, and the merging of organisms into larger wholes. This new understanding is actually quite ancient, echoing the indigenous understanding of nature as a web of gifts.
.
Each organism and each species makes a vital contribution to the totality of life on earth, and this contribution, contrary to the expectations of standard evolutionary biology, need not have any direct benefit for the organism itself. Nitrogen-fixing bacteria don‘t directly benefit from doing so, except that the nitrogen they give to the soil grows plants that grow roots that grow fungi, which ultimately provide nutrients to the bacteria. Pioneer species pave the way for keystone species, which provide microniches for other species, which feed yet other species in a web of gifts that, eventually, circle back to benefit the pioneer species. Trees bring up water to water other plants, and algae make oxygen so that animals can breathe. Remove any being, and the health of all becomes more precarious…

I Love You All!

An enormous boost will be applied to your individual energy fields

11/09/2011 by John Smallman

November 11th 2011 is of great significance, as an enormous boost will be applied to your individual energy fields to mightily assist you with the process of your awakening.  Many on earth who have been focusing purely on the physical or material environment that the illusion provides will receive a sharp shock or jolt that will bring to their awareness a realization that there is much more to life than they had thought.

There will be a large increase in the numbers of people embarking on spiritual quests as they experience “aha!” moments, giving them a sudden intuitive sense of the vast realms that exist beyond the physical and that, until now, they had thought were the unreal imaginings of the mentally unbalanced.

When their surprise eases they will experience a feeling of pure joy and excitement as they discover a hidden inner knowing that tells them that life is far, far more than a few decades of bodily existence followed by death and extinction.

This realization, occurring to so many, will bring with it an understanding that Love is their true nature, and that fear and doubt are meaningless concepts that they can happily release.  To release your fears is enormously freeing and invigorating.  This does not mean that you suddenly feel you have the power and ability to overcome or deal with an enemy, or any disaster or catastrophe in which you might become caught up; what it does mean is that you have accepted yourself exactly as you are, without qualification, and with no need to present yourself to others from behind a mask of competence, diplomacy, humility, or power which hides the fearful and inadequate real you that you fear you are.  You just are, no “ifs, ands, or buts,” and because you just are, no mask, defense, or deceit is needed, ever.

Having accepted yourself in this way, you will also find yourself accepting others just as they are, because you no longer need to adjust your mask in order to interact satisfactorily with them; and of course you will not be deceived by any mask another might be “wearing.”  Doubt leaves you, and you find yourself behaving normally – quietly, confidently, effectively, and honestly – always.

As a result you will be at peace, able and willing to help others, whatever their issues or problems, in the manner that is utterly and completely appropriate in the moment, just as it occurs.  You will also deal with any remaining personal issues or situations that need your attention smoothly and competently.

Having freed yourself from doubt and worry you will find that you have far more energy, motivation, and enthusiasm with which to engage life.  Everything you do will be because you want to do it, and doing it will give you pleasure and satisfaction; there will be no more “shoulds,” and you will take on nothing just because not to do so would make you feel guilty.  People will be unable to lay guilt trips on you or manipulate you because you are your own person, and you will not give your power away.

You will be the loving, compassionate being that you truly are, honoring and respecting others, and you will find that others respond to you in like manner as, in meeting with them, your energy fields meld, strengthening and intensifying one another’s honesty and integrity.

This recognition of who you are, of your inestimable and eternal value, is an essential aspect of your awakening process, and will provide you with the certain knowledge that “of course I will awaken.”  This knowledge will totally remove any tiny, lingering doubts or fears that may still be hidden in some dark recess of your mind, and which still question the existence of God, and the possibility of life after bodily death, allowing you to release any last fearful hold you have on the illusion, and the pain and suffering that support it.  Now, when the moment comes, you will be ready for the glory of your awakening.

With so very much love, Saul.

9 things you didn’t know about the life of Steve Jobs

For all of his years in the spotlight at the helm of Apple, Steve Jobs in many ways remains an inscrutable figure — even in his death. Fiercely private, Jobs concealed most specifics about his personal life, from his curious family life to the details of his battle with pancreatic cancer — a disease that ultimately claimed him on Wednesday, at the age of 56. more >

With Time Running Short, Jobs Managed His Farewells

The benefit of death, he said, is you know not to waste life living someone else’s choices.

“Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.”
Steve Jobs
