The Light Series #46: The Love Factor - Changing The Whole World One Heart At A Time
The outpouring of caring, compassionate concern for our brothers and sisters in Iraq - and everywhere else where human beings are suffering - is greatly heartening. The new consciousness is rapidly spreading and will continue to expand no matter what may soon happen.
We are not in a race against time. We are in growing state of grace and time is no limitation.
Just trust we will make it - in the nick of - well... - TIME!

THE GREAT INVOCATION
From the Point of Light within the Mind of God, let Light stream forth into human minds, let Light descend on Earth. From the Point of Love within the Heart of God, let Love stream forth into human hearts, may the Coming One return to Earth. From the center where the Will of God is known, let Purpose guide all little human wills, the Purpose which the Masters know and serve. From the center which we call the human race, let the Plan of Love and Light work out, and may it seal the door where evil dwells. Let Light, and Love, and Power restore the Plan on Earth.

It is with enormous gratitude that I write to thank you not only for your tireless work to educate us and help us be more effective, focussed Spiritual Peacemakers, but especially for the above referenced compilation. Never have I felt more inspired! With each line, the "Inspiring talk by Arundhati Roy" had me sitting a little bit taller in my chair, and the belly laughs and profound wisdoms from Swami Beyondananda were wonderfully therapeutic in these tense times. Also, knowing there is likely to be a groundswell in favour of Dennis Kucinich for president and a forum to foster it brings with it a feeling that perhaps we DO have a voice in this so-called democratic process of ours.
Thank you again.

Thank you, Jean, for this beautiful picture. I printed it out, taped it to the back of my vest, and wore it to the peace rally in San Francisco where I sang with the Threshold Choir from noon to four -- I saw everyone who marched and felt as though I'd been immersed in a sea of humanity. I never felt so much love in my heart for people as at this march.
I'm sure the energy shifted this past week. I don't believe we will go to war in Iraq now. The Sunday meditation was the most powerful ever. Thank you for all that you have done. You've been a staunch peace activist for such a long time. The energy felt glorious this weekend.
Today has been somewhat of a letdown as I crash back into the real world with all its problems. I hope all is going well with you.

From: Liz Daly <email@example.com>
Thank you, Jean, for calling to our attention, in your special way, the topics covered within this compilation. The fear spin doctors are really trying to stir everything up right NOW catapulting many into panic mode. I think it vitally important to call attention to the truth of Patriot Act II without creating additional fear waves. I respect your clarion call to all of us on the ERN list by sincerely asking all of us to wake up to the facts within these secret U.S. government acts. Education is the key here, not the creation of additional fear drama caused by the contents of said secret acts. It is a fine line to walk here. How do we authentically pursue our personal spiritual paths in peace and harmony without adding to the fear factor currently spinning throughout the web of the world? I trust that each of us will go within to seek the answer to this poignant question. The heart is the answer. It always is the answer.
I so appreciate your dedication to exposing the truth of what really is to the forefront of our minds. As an energy within a female body this incarnation, the balance between the emotional and mental and spiritual and physical bodies is always a most delicate dance. Education empowers all aspects of our experience, including the blossoming of our own emotions which paves the way for heartfelt decision making. I share my experience purely from my own always evolving heart and intuitive centers. Blessings of the Highest to you. In gratitude, love, light and truth...

A RESOUNDLY BEAUTIFUL AND MOST EMPOWERING MESSAGE FROM PRINCESS DIANA
Date: 20 Feb 2003
From: "Michael Joseph" <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: Diana speaks
Thank you once again for the inspired and inspiring material that you keep on sending round the world... You'll be glad to know that an estimated two million people marched for peace in London last Saturday - the largest demonstration in British history.
I have just finished collaborating with Diana, the late Princess of Wales, on a book, "Love from Diana", which is to be published in America and Europe later this year. I am enclosing her thoughts on the present crisis, which you may wish to share with your readers.
Love and thoughts and thanks, as ever, from
Diana If there has to be a war, let it not be against people, let it be against ignorance, fear, violence, selfishness, secrecy and greed. Let the leaders of the nations have the courage to put it to their peoples. Let the human race speak, for the first time in history. Let there be a world Referendum:
"Which is it to be? Endless war - or endless peace?"
Prepare yourselves for a terrible shock, gentlemen, those of you who lead your peoples: there will be a landslide vote for endless peace.
What conclusion can we draw from this? That throughout history, it has suited certain individuals, for reasons of their own, to keep the nations at each other's throats. For thousands of years they have presided over the slaughter of the innocents. It is still going on today:
Past mistakes and past crimes are being used as an excuse for launching still more horror, and the sacrifice of still more innocents - those poor, conditioned fighting men and women who are shaping up for battle in the Middle East.
This is NOT a holy war, whatever the political and religious leaders might tell you. There's no such thing as a holy war! Killing one another, for whatever reason, is anything but holy.
If I had the power to stop this war machine in its tracks, to immobilize it once and for all and send the opposing troops home to their families, I wouldn't hesitate for a moment. But I've got an even better idea:
YOU stop it! You have the right to do so. You have the power to do so. What are you waiting for?!
And to signal your long-awaited victory, may Light explode all round the Earth, like the biggest fireworks display of all time, filling the minds and hearts of everyone alive. May a moment of indescribable joy and love and revelation hit the Earth like an asteroid - now! And if not now - soon!
May the hideous nightmare end, and may the party begin.
My love and greetings to all of you working for the Light - and all those still trapped in shadow.

Subject: Handbook for the New Paradigm Volume Two
Date: 20 Feb 2003
I have been reading your newsletters for at least a couple of years now, and it may be that I first saw the link I've forwarded to you in one of your issues. However, it's been such a gift to me now that I've finally read it all (I've had it bookmarked in Favorites for a long time, but only just got around to reading it), that I hope you feature it for your readers soon, even if you already have in the past. There are 3 volumes, and the links for Volume I and III are on this link:
It's harder to find the links for all the chapters if you don't have this link, which features Vol II. There is also an addendum to Vol.III which one can find at http://www.futuredynamicadvantage.com/newparadigm/addendum.html
Global lovers of peace have certainly done well with the latest demonstrations, but realistically, I think most of us are also gearing up for a long battle ahead. Even the saints may grow weary thinking of all the fronts to which time and energy must be devoted, but it is always helpful to know exactly WHAT we are up against to be most effective, and this is why I've sent this link, which is channeled material describing exactly THAT...
A lot of channeled material is being used to make money. However,"Handbook for the New Paradigm" (all 3 volumes) are available for purchase for a modest price for those who want them, but they can also be read free of charge online. The channeler ( a retired Air Force officer! ) is not trying to make money from this work, he just wants the information available to those who are open to it. Of course, some people are not interested in anything that's channeled. However, I think there may be many people like myself among your readers who are feeling that there is so much more going on in the world than even the most enlightened journalists can uncover. There's a persistent and unavoidable, sinking feeling among many people I know that activism alone, perhaps even prayers and meditation alone, are not going to be enough to stem the tide of negativity we are witnessing today...
I have found great new courage and resolve by facing my deepest fears and finding that, now, even knowing the worst, I have faith and stamina for what lies ahead. Until I faced those fears squarely, with the help of information like what I found in the "Handbook", I NEVER felt at ease, and I was always DOUBTING!!!
A few years ago, the idea of ETs being behind the NWO merely made me scoff, as I know many still do. But there is more and more evidence now, much of it available to anyone online. Zecharia Sitchin, Sir Lawrence Gardner and many other respected scholars offer their documented evidence about ETs and their role in our history, free for anyone to read. There are new archeological discoveries being made every day which are providing irrefutable evidence that our history is far different than what mainstream authorities have been telling us.
For those ardent activists who feel, in their hearts of hearts, that there is something more to KNOW, something even more powerful than demonstrating, petitioning, etc. that they can DO to bring about a peaceful world, I really recommend they start here.
Blessings to you, Jean, and to all those not afraid to take the next steps BEYOND FEAR...
NOTE FROM JEAN: I was intending to include the following quote from the firsth Handbook I have here, just to give you an idea of what they convey:
"The days are now upon us for gathering the focus that will bring about the transformation of the mass consciousness. It will be an interesting process of inter-linking various consciously begun projects at different places on the planet. There are more than one ground crew with purposeful assignments. While it is natural to feel that what one person or one group is attempting is too little too late, this is not the case. All are now in place, or nearly enough so that the concerted beginning can be initiated. It is necessary that the resolve, intent and purpose be held securely within the scope of each of you, as the days ahead may seem discouraging. You must hold to your commitment with a calm and trust that does not waver. This experience is a manifested reality that must be dealt with inside that reality. The game must be continued on until completion. It can no longer be changed or delayed. Humanity is sinking into greater fear and confusion furthering the plans of the manipulators at a rapid pace. The spiritual levels of each are becoming more and more inaccessible and the reaction of the spirit expressing through the body to this process will continue to reflect through the reaction of the planet also. It is not a pretty picture from our prospective. It is not our intent to focus your attention into this picture but it is also necessary that you are aware of what you are working within. It is unfortunate that it has had to proceed this far into the levels of suffering before the consciousness becomes vulnerable and desperate enough to pause and reflect that enough is enough. Perhaps now enough can be reached with the desire to bring this situation to an end to be willing to accomplish it through a total change of engrained habitual reactions." CLIP
What is Divine Love?
Love is most thought of in the world as an emotion, but is Love an emotion? Or, is Love something much greater than that which can also be expressed in varying degrees through the emotions? Falling in love describes an emotional state that is an effect of a greater cause. The type of effect it has in different people, and at different times, will be dependent then upon the condition and quality of the emotional nature. When we clear the choppy ocean of emotion into mirror-glass smooth reflectivity, the quality of Love reflected through us can be an undistorted reflection of Love Divine.
"God is Love" is a basic tenet held in common by the religions of the world. But, what IS Love? If God IS Love, then Love is a state of Being. If God, the Creator, is Divine, then so, too, is Love Divine, and to "return to God" would be to return to Love.
Love is the basic Principle, or Law, of the Universe. Many spiritual Teachers have advised us to love our neighbors as ourselves. The Law of Love is the First Cause, all other Law is subsidiary to the Law of Love. Love is the "All in One" and the "One in All." If we "obey" the Law of Love, no other Law is needed. Universal Law is Divine in nature and origin and Love is the first Divine Law. Perhaps one way the Law of Love could be stated to us is: "Ye Be Love, so Be Ye Love, So Be It!"
Divine Love is expressed as that magnetic, attractive, cohesive force which draws All unto Itself. Divine Love, all encompassing in consciousness includes the Whole in each Consideration. There is more there, in this Consideration, than our limited human minds can encompass! We can, though, begin to grasp some idea of this unconditionally All Inclusive state of Being. As we do begin to grasp some idea of Divine Love, that bit of idea itself will have some of the magnetic attractive quality of Divine Love, drawing more unto itself. The effect, then, is cumulative; the more we grasp, the more we can grasp, and come to know, become, then be One with Love.
The first "rule" in responsiveness to Divine Love is harmlessness: harmlessness in thought and word and deed. The first sign that a person is responding to Divine Love is in the establishment of an ever growing, ever more inclusive sense of responsibility: for the self, the family, the community, the nation, the world...

Subject: To heal the world we must heal ourselves
World peace will only happen when enough individuals have realized peace within themselves. The looming war that seems inevitable is the result of the state of consciousness that represents the majority of mankind. It can't be different. For this to be happening is evidence that not enough people have realized peace within themselves.
Humanity is possessed by their images and what is worst: These images themselves inhibit to realize them! Everybody is fighting to reach goals and it doesn't work!
There exists no real Peace, Love or Harmony! These are beautiful concepts and people try to live them somehow, but their personally experienced daily reality is totally different. We all are longing for love and peace and we are clinging on concepts about it, without being able to bring them down into our daily life. We have the hope one day in the future to fulfill our dreams and until then we are fighting to survive.
Soon this dream and the hope to fulfill our longing will collapse when war will spread out across the countries... Are we helpless victims because of the decisions of 'mad politicians'? It might look true, but it isn't! Our responsibility for the world situation and what we can do to have a true effect rests in our individual responsibility to realize peace within ourselves! Targeting and giving the fault to an outside institution or an enemy will have zero effect to change the situation. Nobody is a powerless victim! We CAN change something: Ourselves, and nobody can inhibit this! But where do we start? It is clear that participation in mass demonstrations or lighting candles in the window doesn't change anything. It might give the feeling of having done something but in reality nothing changes.
But what can we do then? You might say: "We just want to live in peace, doing our daily work to earn our bread. We vote for the most convincing politician, but more we can't do." It is obvious now that this is not enough! What we can do is that we actively do a step to realize peace within ourselves! How? By questioning oneself. Questioning one's position and one's motivations, one's attitude and one's goals. Also questioning whatever is presented from any kind of system that is manipulating us to reach their goals or to keep their established power and to widen it out. For them all means to defend are justified and it is not possible to trust anything coming from somebody who feels threatened. This is valid on all levels, from the single individual like you and me up to the highest power levels of countries.
Is there any doubt that this world is governed by a mankind that possesses a strictly materialistic world view? This state is the current situation of humanity, being still identified with materialistic goals. World peace will only happen when enough individuals have realized peace within themselves. The result of the materialistic world view is predictable, the only desire is to grow stronger to establish more security and power for oneself, out of this comes the desire to eliminate everything that seems to be against it.
There is no doubt that nearly all of the idealistic images and concepts in this society, serve to enhance the materialistic attitude. Traditional religion gives an additional security but doesn't change the underlying materialistic behaviors. Images of Love and Peace serve to feed one's longing but don't have influence to affect the materialistic goal. Spiritual images serve to manipulate people to keep them quiet and in dependency. For example: God as an image taking care of us, allowing us to believe that everything is okay exactly how it is. This attitude keeps us in dependency offering us security so we don't have to question our own position...
We need to question our position and become aware that we are in dependency. We have the image of 'freedom' written on our banners, but we are not free. We have the image of love, but this is conditional dependent on the fulfillment of our personal needs, which are in any case the most important! We have the image of harmony, but we are confused and insecure when our material base is threatened or our personal frame of emotional property is reduced. Our self-knowledge is rudimental and our life is full of fear and the need for self confirmation.
We are looking constantly for more security and fulfillment by striving for more property on all levels. Let's be honest: It doesn't work. In the first place because every body is doing the same and so the interests are clashing against each other. One tries to eat the other and fight is inevitable. "Who is not with us, is against us!" We can't stop this destructive attitude on the big scale if we don't stop it beginning with ourselves!
Bringing down peace into our life can only happen in our daily life right now. This can't happen instantly how we would like it. This is a long process and there is a lot of engagement and personal work connected with it. We need to question ourselves and we need to observe our reactions when our personal interests seem to be threatened. This is the moment to observe and then maybe we can understand and act, by loosening our attitude and giving space to the other. This is the key! Understand that the person in front of us wants exactly the same as we want: Firstly, confirmation of one's own position by getting attention and secondly, strengthening one's property which includes one's opinion, one's beliefs and one's images. Getting this, then one's self image is reinforced and there is felt well-being. If not there will be frustration and disappointment, and as further reactions anger and aggression and finally as a result violence and destruction - on the big scale WAR. Can you see that to avoid this one has to start with oneself to break out of this vicious circle? Personally, within your family, your group, your company, with what ever shows up: Now! You personally will have to make a decision to take the first step. With this you will enter a process, which will bring disturbance and insecurity in the beginning, but you will find tranquility and a new space within yourself...

Subject: Channeled message from Pierre Theilard de Chardin
I started channeling this man a few weeks ago and didn't know where to post it online but felt it was important to get out. Maybe you would like to send it around on the network. I didn't know who he was until after I channeled this message and then I looked him up online and found he was a famous scientist and Jesuit monk.
Channeled from Pierre Theilard de Chardin, Jan. 29,2003
"True freedom will only be won when every man, woman and child are free from hunger, disease and poverty. Every person must have this as a right and we must strive for this goal in the world. Until this is accomplished no man is truely free. For if your brother is not well cared for you have a burden on your soul. Every person must have freedom from worry and want so the soul can pursue its true purpose which is to create, whether that is to create children and teach them and mold them or great works of art or music. The soul must be freed of material concerns so it may soar to heights of glory and joy. The human soul is capable of much more than we can experience when we have worries about food and shelter. God did not intend for us to have needs. He provided us this beautiful planet to live on with all we need if we would only nourish it, as we would a precious child. There is enough for everyone. There is no need to gather things up and say "this is mine and I will not share or I own this and you cannot come in." Everyone must strive until all share the abundance God provides in equal measure."

Thank you so much again for your informative newsletter. You provide a great service. I don't know if you accept poems. Putting them out is one way I feel I can contribute to creating peace.
Thanks & peace,
There Will Be No More War
When business becomes "IS-ness"
Speed turns to rest
Doing to being
Us instead of "ME-king"
When "w" and "n" trade places
Won becomes "now"
Future and past
As we know them collapse
When two know they are one
And one knows itself as many
Generosity will flourish
For all there will be plenty
When death of separation
Gives birth to unity
When love for you
Equals love for me
When up isn't better
And down "ain't" worse
When sister and brother
Share the same worth
When winning is losing
And competition is vain
Humans will know
All war is insane
When loss and gain
Are like tides of the sea
When every you
Is another face of me
When dollars are paper
And sense is what counts
When our awakening
Has displaced doubt
When fear has faded
And worry's no more
We will rejoice
There will be no more war!
