[FIRST, A VERY PROFOUND SIGH.] Believe me, John, your perceptions are not at all unfamiliar to me - just as, buried somewhere deep within your innermost feelings, there's a place where you DO want to agree with me, where you DO want to believe that "Everything's Gonna Be All Right." I can accept and understand ALL viewpoints. But I CHOOSE to focus energy and my will on those that engender Win-Win opportunities for ALL life on ALL levels in ALL worlds. This simply means I must opt for the MOST
COMPREHENSIVE, WIDEST PERSPECTIVE available to me at any point. Being alarmed by the mayhem and carnage generated by aggressively narrow mindsets does not contribute positively to the final outcome of human evolution. Therefore, while I acknowledge that such a pattern of response ("Looking out for Number One") is very much part of the overall range of possible human responses, I will not consciously opt for it.
Be mindful that we may not have to wait till the year 2000 to witness "apocalyptic effects" around the planet. There's a fairly strong possibility that before this year is out, our geomagnetic field will
ZERO OUT - causing mass insanity and cataclysmic phenomena in some quarters and mass awakening and anamnesis (remembrance of Source) in others. Indeed there are clear signs that this is already happening -
and the millenial fever (or fervor) is just one of them.
On 14 December 1997 (8 Caban, 3 Chicchan by the Mayan Calendar) something TOTALLY INEXPLICABLE occurred in deep space (about 12 billion light years away): an explosion the size of the Big Bang was detected by the BeppoSAX satellite radiotelescope. "For about one or two seconds," says Prof. George Djorgovski of Caltech, "this burst was as luminous as all the rest of the entire universe." NOW, THAT'S PRETTY AWESOME NEWS THAT NEVER MADE THE FRONT PAGE OF ANY NEWSPAPER.
On 23 May 1998 (9 Ik, 7 Chicchan) the discovery of Atlantis off the Bimini coast was announced by Aaron Du Val. THAT DIDN'T MAKE THE FRONT PAGES EITHER (AT LEAST, NOT OF ANY NEWSPAPER OR MAGAZINE THAT I KNOW OF).
And has there been widespread and indepth news coverage of the discovery of an UNDERGROUND CITY IN EGYPT ABOUT 12 STORIES DEEP?
Why are these events significant? How do they relate to our survival into the 21st Century and beyond? Simply because they dramatically expand the spacetime context of our existence way, way beyond the insectoid bickerings of nasty-tempered, egoically insecure nations, jerked around by pompous little panjandrums (sad to say, my own country isn't exempt from this description) - and way beyond the feeding frenzy of stockmarket and forex speculators and soccer team owners.
As soon as one begins to pay attention to what is actually going on around us, one's Reality Options rapidly increase... and the fearful scenario of Y2K-related apocalypse instantly fades from the foreground. When the proverbial man-or-woman-or-child-in-the-street is finally given full access to the true story of Earth and her inhabitants, our current preoccupations will immediately change - and we shall realize that ABUNDANCE NOT SCARCITY rules. For we are indeed "heirs and heiresses to the Kingdom and Queendom
of God" - albeit temporarily enslaved by erroneous belief systems (political, scientific and religious dogmas) that disempower and disenfranchise us from wise decision-making.
Incidentally, John... I have lived VERY COMFORTABLY for nearly 6 years without electricity, telephone, flush toilets or computers. My hut in the jungle has no doors and no gates and no fences, and I have never lived in fear of thieves. Recently I was given access to communication tools like this computer, a phone/fax and a video recorder (I travel about 7 miles to town when I want to make use of them) - and I now understand that they are here to help me project my thoughts to a wider audience - not just to make lots of money in the consumer society and buy lots of gadgets that will very soon end up as a poisonous pile of junk.
Forgive me if this has turned into a very long ramble. I say these things in an empathetic and supportive spirit - not just for the sake of contention. WE ARE VERY PRIVILEGED TO BE ALIVE IN THESE AMAZING TIMES OF TRANSFORMATION WHEN THE MONEY-GRUBBING 'CATERPILLAR' PHASE IS ALMOST COMPLETED AND A 'BUTTERFLY' ERA OF BEAUTY AND FREEDOM AWAITS US ALL. FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS HUMANS HAVE BEEN PROGRAMMED TO ACCUMULATE AND PROTECT (HENCE THE COMMERCIAL-INDUSTRIAL- MILITARY COMPLEX): THE END OF "CIVILIZATION AS WE KNOW IT" MEANS WE MUST REPROGRAM OURSELVES TO REATTUNE AND HARMONIZE... OR PERISH (BUT EVEN SO WE CAN REJOICE IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT WE SHALL BE RECYCLED AS FERTILIZER FOR THE NEXT SEASON OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH! :-)~
Pax Vobiscum, Brother John.
