"The choice between love and fear is made every moment in our hearts and minds. That is where the peace process begins. Without peace within, peace in the world is an empty wish. Like love, peace is extended. It cannot be brought from the world to the heart. It must be brought from each heart to another, and thus to all mankind."

- Paul Ferrini


As leaves emerge from the trees,
As waves emerge from the seas,
Just so, you and I
Emerge from the universe
Apparently separate beings.

Yet if we dive beneath the surface,
Bright truth shines like morning sun,
Behind our strangely wondrous differences
We truly all are one.

Beloved Friends and Family,

The events of this weekend, here, and all over the world are awe-inspiring and spirit lifting. The masses of people gathered in D.C., San Francisco, Portland, and major cities all over the world, as well as many local gatherings, protesting the impending war is a scene straight out of the '60's. And yet, not. No one was arrested. It was more peaceful, somehow- less anger, and more of a simple demonstration of Who We Are, and what we choose for our world to be. If you couldn't find it in yourself to have hope before, perhaps now you'll give yourself permission. We are at a crossroads here at this moment in time (as if you had no clue). Yes, we are always evolving, and facing some sort of challenge in life, over the decades. But here, now, there is something more happening. It's a grow or go situation, I like to call it. Now or never. We either heed the call of our souls to be who we've come here to be, or we destroy this planet, and each other along with it. Make no mistake- the world as we know it will end, no matter what we choose. The key words here are "as we know it."

With the frightening technology we have to destroy today, Humanity can't afford many more of these "temper tantrums," as I've heard it so well put. We'll either step into the Light and create Heaven on Earth, or destroy it all. Yes, there will be other lives, other planets, other times. But if Life is an opportunity for us to declare to the Universe Who We Are, then why wait? Why pass up this opportunity to know ourselves as the Grandest Version of the Greatest Vision Ever We Held About Who We Are? Are we not tired of living in fear, ever shrinking from the Blinding Light that is Who We Are?

I'd like to take this moment to invite each of you (myself included) to step outside ourselves for a moment, take a breather from our personal dramas (of which there are never a shortage), and remember that your life is not about you. It's about all the people whose lives you touch in the process of being who you are. So, lets get out of our "Stuff" and look around.

There's a world to save out there. And we are its only hope. We are the Hope of Humanity. And we won't save it with our anger and our outrage, with our fear and our hopelessness, or by pretending we're less than Who We Really Are.

There's nothing we need to do to become "enlightened," or more complete, or whatever. In this moment, we are already whole, already healed, already a Divine Spark of God. Our problem is not that we need to be healed. It is simply that we have forgotten that we already are.

There's nothing we need to do to become "enlightened," or more complete, or whatever. In this moment, we are already whole, already healed, already a Divine Spark of God. Our problem is not that we need to be healed. It is simply that we have forgotten that we already are.

And that leads us to the only question worth asking today. Who do I choose to be in relationship to all that is occurring? Do I choose to be powerless, self-involved, scared? Or do I choose to be the change I wish to see in the world? There is no right or wrong here. Don't guilt trip yourself if you've been showing up as less than you know you could be. Just know that you're making a choice and stop torturing yourself by both wanting and resisting being who it is you want to be.

Please, please. Don't underestimate your power, your impact. Everyone in your life is looking to you right now for direction. Leadership is not something you're born with. It is a choice. It is a self-appointed position in life. And God knows the world is ravenous for leaders right now. If not you, then who? If not now, then when?

It's time. Let the waiting end, and the living begin.

Saying Yes to Life,

Subject: A Personal Message From Michael Lightweaver

I feel very compelled to share some observations and comments with you at this time. It is obvious to most of us that we are living in very extraordinary times and this particular moment in history seems to be particularly precarious. My sense is we are walking on a knife's edge and that what takes place over the next 90 days could well set the energy for the next century in terms of the fate of the Earth and humanity. I don't think this is only about a possible war with Iraq, though that is certainly a factor. But there is more to it than that.

Many of us have sent emails, protested, meditated, etc., and continue to do so related to peace. Many of us also have experienced a good deal of frustration as we see the goose-step toward war in spite of our best efforts.

At a deep level I know that the only way we will ultimately be able to shift the energy 'out there' is by shifting the energy 'in here.' My own Guidance has requested that I 'embrace George Bush, Donald Rumsfield and even Dick Cheney with a totally open heart - reaching past their personalities, politics, and potential for creating massive suffering - all of it - to embrace them with Love at a Soul Level as I nudge them energetically - and in love - to move beyond their personal dramas and into their own Souls and Hearts as the source of their decision making.

I will be quite honest that the activist part of me sees all of this as 'pollyannish' but another part of me knows that as long as I am at war with them in my mind and heart, I cannot expect anything more from them. This activist part of me doesn't want to admit it, but my own soul-knowing knows that this Guidance is right.

I'm not really telling or asking you to do anything specific. That is between you and your own Guidance. This is more of a personal confession to colleagues. I'm fairly convinced, however, if 'lightworkers' throughout the world could do this, we would shift the energetics of this situation that would quickly manifest in the outward form of what we all seek: peace, justice, prosperity and security.

Repeatedly I have been given the image of a brilliant column of Light coming down from above and into the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. At the base of the needle like obelisk, the light is divided into four beams. The first beam goes to the East and connects with the Sun. The second goes to the South and connects with the Lincoln Memorial, symbol of Freedom. The Third one goes to the West, to the White House, and the fourth goes to the North, to the Capitol Building. This Light represents the transformative power of Love from Divine Presence and has the potential of total transformation of both the U.S. Government and ultimately, the planet.

I said I wasn't asking anything of you. But maybe I am. If this image is in alignment with your own Guidance, I would invite you to joining me daily in holding this image and inviting those in your network to do likewise. As we do this and all our inner work, our ultimate prayer should always be that everything unfolds to the highest good of all concerned.

Subject: Song of Myself, Who We Truly Are
From: Nancy Thorwaldson <>

My dear Jean,

The earth, all beings, consciousness:

Namaste, my willing friend! I honor you for the courage and depth you go to in owning your own truths and allowing them to shift as we expand in this shifting state of consciousness, this great unknown we are in as we transition between the old reality and the new.

Your reply caught me off guard, Jean! I was shocked, in wonder, at your willingness to listen, not reply from an automatic mental stance in defensiveness. I saw in the mirror who you are, the you I am, and that I still held the limiting belief that I wouldn't be heard. I was shocked to be speaking to your readers, not just you and Anni. ;)

Yesterday morning my own state of consciousness, contracting and expanding in such acceleration that I hardly know where I am from one moment to the next, I saw is in a state much like labor, birthing. The process may seem to go on forever, gets more intense and more difficult each hour, yet the movements of contraction and expansion do result in new beingness, a new self. As all process, it is fruitful, though it may be very hard to see that until you are nearly past it into the new.

You wrote of my Christmas morning letter that it:


Your reply is as well. What I realized is that, of course, all individuals who step into the 'spotlight' are representing the collective by agreeing to be a focal point of those energies. Some represent mass movements in consciousness collectively, such as Bush and Hussein, for example. Some, such as you, James Tynman, others, represent smaller, if still highly significant movements within the whole. I do as well, even though it appears to be a whisper in the external reckoning, I see from public and private response, it is a truth that I do not hold alone, as I see from your own response to it.

At some point in our shifting we become aware enough to look within, seek self-awareness, expose ourselves to ourselves, learn to listen to all that arises in our personal and collective realities, in our consciousness, as messages by which to guide ourselves, our own truths, no one else's we seek externally, no one other we need change. We look in the mirror that the external reality we create is of our inner state and when we are reactive, we know it is an aspect of self we have projected and need take back, take responsibility for, embrace and own. We know what we resist, persists.

What vibrates strongly enough to catch our attention holds some lost part of us that calls to us to allow it to come home, because like energy draws like energy. We realize there is no one to blame, no one to applaud, there is nothing to fix and nothing to judge. We merge our separations into the One we are, the divinity we are, whose power we own and for whom we have responsibility, ourselves.

We cease to be appalled or sickened or upset by any external manifestation, embrace it all in the love we are and know it truly matters not. We cease to judge. The need is gone because the aspects of self that we have projected, we own and love, know ourselves and all that we experience as reality to be One, divine, perfect.

I look to myself and I see that I expand into and contract from that vaster state of being, watch others around me on the same journey that goes nowhere and accomplishes nothing - except a vastly different way of experiencing 'what is' through realizing who we truly are. I see it is a dance we are all doing with one another that is, in its confusion and seeming missteps and prat falls, nevertheless a dance of grace and beauty, as that of labor, grunting and sweating and swearing, all a part of the awesome and profound movement into the new we have created in invoking the energies to take us there, the shift in consciousness.

This morning I knew it was time to reply to your beautiful letter to me, to all. I enclose a letter I wrote to my essence family, those I recognize, yet there is no one who is not that soul family, soulmate, myself, you, all.

It is personal and yet all we experience is, objective or subjective; these divisions and realms and levels and dimensions and densities are one, indivisible, consciousness, I Am. Please allow yourself to insert your own name, each, where I have addressed a particular aspect of myself. Names are only means of identification and language, aspects of vibratory frequency that we are moving out of the restrictions and limits of as we expand.

What is of import in this message lies outside the words which the mind will assess through its own perceptive lens as it creates in its own image, mirror-like. What is of import lies in the energy it is, the vibratory frequency. If you love and trust yourself, know where and who you are is whole and perfect just as you are, it will inspire you to remember what you know already within.

I have nothing to convince you of or desire to change you. We are one, all of us, beautiful and wondrous past the mind's ability to grasp. We seem to call to one another, speak our truths, think we disagree, but in the wholeness of this choir, there is harmony and depth and equality, there is love seeking itself, self seeking itself.

Know I love you so much, so much, my soulmate. Do you know your own worth? You are life to me, home, the Source, reason to live. I adore all you are.


Subject: I met my soul, my essence

Dearest family,

This morning, reading Tobias, but with all that I have experienced with me, sinking deeply into the moment, I SAW, the veil slipped another degree and I had eyes to see and ears to hear what I already knew, yet didn't quite fully believe, remember, realize, fulfill, or manifest. I do now.

I am called angel, sweetness in light, luminary of the heart, celeste hummingbird, mother of souls, Cricket Lady, Lighthouse, Shakti, Stormy Squash, nanny, sacred elephant and vampire-slayer, Amazon, hot mama and little mama and sis, Ophelia and Beloved. I am called names that are not so complimentary, yes, those too. I am all of this and much more.

I am so vast, my loves, so beautiful that I could not bear the radiance until this moment that I sat and entered the preciousness of being human in this now and in all moments I have experienced. The beings I have adored, love so much, including you are myself, simply my own essence and all that is, divinity creating.

All that I love, I am, is me. As I embraced it all, even the aspects I find fault with, something arose within me that I met and merged with ever more fully and knew to be who I am.

I am kindness and compassion and nurturement and passion and laughter, sweet, sweet laughter and play and innocence. I have always been, always been the love that is the answer. That is light, the vibration of Light, the angelic, as we set it apart from who we are until one day we SEE.

I adore hearing sweet laughter and spark it whenever I can because I know that it is my own, no matter where it seems to echo from and the aspects of me that need to laugh, desire to, yearn to lift on wings free of the slow and dense.

I am a mountain, all mountains and celestial and vast and all oceans and creatures and land and sky and stars. All I see and wonder at and feel awe and gratitude to experience is myself.

When I look in another's eyes and see the Source so dear, so unique, so precious - I see myself. We are One.

You are me. You are this. so so lovely - yes! You. The you/me is an illusion that we play with until we let the separation go because we have the courage to walk into the light and open our eyes and own the truth - the truth that love is - the oneness of all that is - who we are. Then there is no 'we' - only I Am.

I am life, love, truth, joy, abundance, peace, harmony, justice, beauty, all. my eye is the 'I' and this you are. You are me. There is no separation, division or otherness. It is oneness playing within oneness so that the ecstasy of relationship is created, over and over and over in every moment, the bang, the yin and yang merging and separating, but they never truly do, they dance, make love, birth creation.

This you will realize. That is, you will make it real. I know who you are.

The one you call by the name that you create me as... Nancy




Time and the Technosphere: The Law of Time in Human Affairs

by José Argüelles

About the Book

A groundbreaking study that distinguishes the natural time of the cosmos from artificial mechanistic time.

* Reveals September 11 as the signal of the end of artificial time according to the Law of Time.
* Long awaited sequel to the author's bestselling book The Mayan Factor.
* Explains the Great Calendar Change of 2004 and its enormous potential for the future of humanity.

In Time and the Technosphere, José Argüelles presents a groundbreaking study that distinguishes the natural time of the cosmos from the artificial mechanistic time under which we currently live. Argüelles defines the actual nature of time as the frequency of synchronization.

Applying this Law of Time to an understanding of the entire system of life on Earth, he shows that in order to not destroy Earth’s ability to sustain life, we must change our definition of time and adopt a natural harmonic calendar based on the 13-moon 28-day cycle. Until the creation of the Gregorian calendar and the 60-minute hour, most of humanity lived by the 28-day cycle of natural time. The adoption of artificial time has subjected us to a 12:60 time frequency that governs the entire global industrialized civilization—the technosphere. With the collapse of the Twin Towers on September 11, a fissure was created in this artificial technosphere, opening up the noosphere (Earth’s mental envelope). Humanity has a golden opportunity to leave the strife of the past and enter a time of peace by adopting a harmonious natural calendar that will repair the damages caused by the irregular tempo of technospheric time.

Our last best chance to adopt this natural time and step into the bright new future promised by the galactic shift of 2012 is the Great Calendar Change of 2004, a new discovery based on the author’s mathematical research into the Mayan calendar first begun in his landmark work The Mayan Factor. In Time and the Technosphere, Argüelles reveals the clear distinction between third-dimensional astronomical time and the fourth-dimensional synchronic order of the Law of Time, which holds enormous potential for the future of humanity.

“Jose Argüelles' timely work Time and the Technosphere makes a vital contribution to the great paradigm shift in human cultures that is now accelerating. There is a higher dimension of natural time inscribed in the cosmos and a natural calendar that would help humanity mature into the awakening global consciousness that is now essential for future sustainability and well being. This book is an important contribution to the awakening event that is now emerging on a planetary scale.”

- Ashok Gangadean, Ph.D., Professor of Philosophy, Haverford College

Battle for Our Minds - Part One


(...) Yet the battle for our minds is by no means won by the fallen beings that want to keep us bound to limited, machine-minded consciousness. More and more people are experiencing an unfolding cosmic consciousness, by which they are able to perceive transcendent, higher frequency realities. And many are communication with other beings in the universe, despite television, ELF, HAARP and other mind cobbling technologies that are being used to try to cut off the links.

I find very few of the communications that I have read to be right on the mark of love and truth. Most are not even close to the real nature of the new Heaven and new Earth promised in the Book of Revelation, in which a raised humanity will be completely free in body, will and thinking, to be co-creators, eventually, I believe, of exquisitely beautiful worlds shaped out of living waters.

I have had images of the new Earth and I know the feel of living water; and if you read especially Part Three of my book in progress, The House, you will know that I have had my fair share of being harassed by mind controlling entities that do not want humanity open to beauty, joy and love in community of another worldly order.

Through the journey described in The House, I have experienced how we are approaching a great divide in the world. I have stood with my feet firmly planted on this planet Earth and have seen the outline of another Earth just a few steps away, metaphorically speaking. I experienced how the higher frequency morphic field (otherwise known as the etheric body) of the new Earth is evolving within the morphic field of our Earth. So I was not surprised to read in the extraordinary Voyagers books by Ashayana Deane (Voyagers: The Sleeping Abductees --- see at --- and Voyagers: The Secret of Amenti), how the new Earth is due to become part of the consciousness of those who are ready for it in body and mind between 2012 and 2017.

The author describes how by degrees the old Earth will then become a phantom Earth descending further and further into an electric-magnetically matrixed, mind controlled and hellishly 'psycho-civilised' state, while the new Earth (actually renewed Earth) becomes increasingly divine, in the sense of heavenly.

Despite my experience of the truth to what she is writing, I am inclined to want to dismiss the author of the Voyagers books as crackpot, hallucinated. Being rather too worldly perhaps still, I hesitate to share my awareness of what she is writing about with you; yet I cannot in honesty do so.


And there is this from the publishers, Wild Flower Press, Columbus, NC: "Those who are aware know that this is the finest source of information relevant to the real agendas being carried out on Planet Earth. This is not channeled material. It is directly transmitted consciously to Ms. Deane by guardian ETs."

"In this book," writes Ashayana Deane, "I explain the relationship between the '9/11 Disaster' event and the Guardian Alliance emergency release of materials that we have been progressively teaching within the public forum since the end of 2000. Real comprehension is essential if we are to recognize that this seemingly isolated event of international horror represents the greater reality of what is called a 'Trigger Event', which is an external, mass event that is covertly orchestrated by seemingly unrelated 'hidden forces' from 'behind the scenes' - an event that represents the 'pressing of the start button' within the invisible Illuminati World Management Team machine. Trigger Events are orchestrated strategically from off-planet sources in order to set in motion, through remote psychotronic mobilization of the unsuspecting on-planet Illuminati force, a series of national and global changes that are intended to move the global arena toward fulfillment of hidden Fallen Angelic/Intruder ET objectives. It is through understanding these hidden objectives as they exist behind and within the global drama that we, as individuals and nations, are empowered to choose educated, effective action through which the ideals of peace, freedom, brotherhood and love can be attained."

The Guardian Alliance is described as "an immense group of beings residing within a myriad of dimensional locations within the Space/Time Matrix. It assists in the evolution, harmonization, and integration, of countless cultures within the Cosmos, including Earth."

It is made clear in Voyagers how what Ashayana Deane calls the 'interior government' - i.e. the technomad, money mastered NWO illuminati/plutocracy - are working together with the 'greys' and other specifically named lower order, unfriendly to humanity extra-terrestrials, to create the hell I describe in The HAARP Peril.

Ashayana Deane appeals to the interior government to "refuse any and all dealings with these beings, for they are not your allies nor friends. They are attempting to pull a covert 'Trojan Horse' stunt on you. This can succeed only if you 'open the gates', enter agreements with them and allow them to convince you to orchestrate experiments, the consequences of which you do not understand."

The choice is ours. We either choose to be truth and light bearers or we will remain trapped as debt masters or serfs in a mind controlled EM-matrixed phantom world, through God knows how many incarnations. And the likelihood is that those who choose the lazy way of 'business as usual' will not even be aware of there having been a great divide. Even now they live without knowledge of the changes in perception in the growing number of people who are being readied for the fulfilment of Revelation.

As it says of the last days in the New Testament, "one will be taken, the other left" (Matthew 24:40/41).

Openness to 'ascension' follows out of our willingness to stay with the reality of Earth as it is, in the right spirit of cooperation with our guardian angels, who are working for the best of all possible worlds. As we cooperate, the flow of energies through the body is made right for 'ascension' at the right time for it.

Out of simply wanting the right ordering of this worldly reality, so without 'ascension' in mind, Michael Lerner writes in the March/April 2001 issue of Tikkun: "Energy always flows either toward hope, community, love, generosity, mutual recognition, and spiritual aliveness or it flows toward despair, cynicism, fear that there is not enough, paranoia about the intentions of others, and a desire to control and to turn everything in our reality into something that can be controlled."

All the elements in our body vibrate positively to the energy for hope, community and love.

This has been shown, scientifically, to apply to the water molecules, which make up 70 to 80 percent of our bodies. Dr Masaru Emoto, a Japanese researcher, has been able to photograph the crystals of frozen water from different sources to show the different patterns that are evoked in water by prayer, sound and words. He works out of the understanding that all substances and phenomena have their own unique, vibrational frequency, magnetic resonance field, called Hado in Japanese (and probably equivalent to prana, orgone, and chi in other languages). From his research Dr. Emoto has concluded that, "all things lie within your own consciousness."

Looking at the photographs of frozen water crystals at, one can see how water molecules into which the Japanese word for 'thank you' has been projected have the same hexagonal shape as molecules resonating to the word 'love'; and one can see how the negative thought, "I don't like you" takes the shape of something like spilt coffee.

According to Dr. Emoto, "Hado = Water = Energy". With regard to health, the most effective medicine for a severe disease, he argues, is to be aware that we are living in cooperation with micro-organisms at each moment of our lives. However, this is not the right formula for 'ascension'. In the coming great divide, opening out on to the renewed Earth will be in bodies that are thoroughly attuned to hope, community and love.

I am referring to the upliftment of bodies in their morphogenic (etheric) and not necessarily their physical form. However, I am aware that the full bodily ascension of the prophet Elijah will not have been an hallucinated event (2 Kings 2). And when Elijah ascended into Heaven, it was not in a body made fit for it because of his having eaten right and thought right about the vibant interrelatedness of all the body micro-organisms; it was on a line of prayer in action for a just society of hope, community and love under the Lord God Almighty whom he served.

Space Centre to Screen 'Proof of UFOs'

Images claiming to be proof of alien UFOs will be shown to members of the public at the National Space Centre later this month.

Hundreds of the objects were captured on film by the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (Soho), a spacecraft a million miles from Earth observing the sun.

The glowing, saucer-shaped "craft" were apparently moving in a way that suggested intelligent control. Nasa originally dismissed the images as being the result of a camera fault, and will not now comment on them. But UFO investigators are convinced they are spacecraft flown by aliens.

Mike Murray, 54, a founder of the UFO group Euroseti, which is holding the exhibition at the Space Centre in Leicester, said: "Some of the pictures are real crackers. They are the archetypal flying saucers - disc-shaped objects with some kind of glow around them. Many have a pulsing light and leave a trail behind them."

Mr Murray, who has been interested in UFOs for 30 years, obtained the images from a Spanish businessmen who picked them up from Soho using a giant satellite dish at his home outside Barcelona.

Mr Murray said: "The first thing we did when we got the images was to speak to Nasa, who said it was a camera fault. But by enhancing the images we proved this wasn't the case."

He said Nasa then suggested the objects could be asteroids or comets - but this did not explain the way they appeared to move independently and make turns.

The images will be screened at the National Space Centre on the evenings of January 24, 25 and 26.


Are these the crafts of the ET Guardian Alliance mentioned in Battle for Our Minds (#6 above)?...
