The inspiration for the title: A New Earth came from a Bible prophecy that seems more applicable now than at any other time in human history. It occurs in both the Old and the New Testament and speaks of the collapse of the existing world order and the arising of 'a new heaven and a new earth'. We need to understand here that heaven is not a location but refers to the inner realm of consciousness. This is the esoteric meaning of the word, and this is also its meaning in the teachings of Jesus. Earth, on the other hand, is the outer manifestation in form, which is always a reflection of the inner. Collective human consciousness and life on our planet are intrinsically connected. 'A new heaven' is the emergence of a transformed state of human consciousness, and 'a new earth' is its reflection in the physical realm.

(The Core of the Ego) - Chapter Three

Most people are so completely identified with the voice in the head--the incessant stream of involuntary and compulsive thinking and the emotions that accompany it--that we may describe them as being possessed by their mind. As long as you are completely unaware of this, you take the thinker to be who you are. This is the egoic mind. We call it egoic because there is a sense of self, of I (ego), in every thought--every memory, every interpretation, opinion, viewpoint, reaction, emotion. This is unconsciousness, spiritually speaking. Your thinking, the content of your mind, is of course conditioned by the past: your upbringing, culture, family background, and so on. The central core of all your mind activity consists of certain repetitive and persistent thoughts, emotions, and reactive patters that you identify with most strongly. This entity is the ego itself.

In most cases, when you say "I," it is the ego speaking, not you, as we have seen. It consists of thought and emotion, of a bundle of memories you identify with as "me and my story," of habitual roles you play without knowing it, of collective identifications such as nationality, religion, race, social class, or political allegiance. It also contains personal identifications, not only with possessions, but also with opinions, external appearance, long-standing resentments, or concepts of yourself as better than or not as good as others, as a success or failure.

The content of the ego varies from person to person, but in every ego the same structure operates. In other words: Egos only differ on the surface. Deep down they are all the same. In what way are they the same? They live on identification and separation. When you live through the mind-made self comprised of thought and emotion that is the ego, the basis for your identity is precarious because thought and emotion are by their very nature ephemeral, fleeting. So every ego is continuously struggling for survival, trying to protect and enlarge itself. To uphold the I-thought, it needs the opposite thought of "the other." The conceptual "I" cannot survive without the conceptual "other." The others are most other when I see them as my enemies. At one end of the scale of this unconscious egoic patter lies the egoic compulsive habit of faultfinding and complaining about others. Jesus referred to it when he said, "Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?" At the other end of the scale, there is physical violence between individuals and warfare between nations. In the Bible, Jesus' question remains unanswered, but the answer is, of course: Because when I criticize or condemn another, it makes me feel bigger, superior.

Complaining & Resentment

Complaining is one of the ego's favorite strategies for strengthening itself. Every complaint is a little story the mind makes up that you completely believe in. Whether you complain aloud or only in thought makes no difference. Some egos that perhaps don't have much else to identify with easily survive on complaining alone. When you are in the grip of such an ego, complaining, especially about other people, is habitual and, of course, unconscious, which means you don't know what you are doing. Applying negative mental labels to people, either to their face or more commonly when you speak about them to others or even just think about them, is often part of this pattern. Name-calling is the crudest form of such labeling and of the ego's need to be right and triumph over others: “jerk, bastard, bitch"--all definitive pronouncements that you can't argue with. On the next level down on the scale of unconsciousness, you have shouting and screaming, and not much below that, physical violence.

Resentment is the emotion that goes with complaining and the mental labeling of people and adds even more energy to the ego. Resentment means to feel bitter, indignant, aggrieved, or offended. You resent other people's greed, their dishonesty, their lack of integrity, what they are doing, what they did in the past, what they said, what they failed to do, what they should or shouldn't have done. The ego loves it. Instead of overlooking unconsciousness in others, you make it into their identity. Who is doing that? The unconsciousness in you, the ego. Sometimes the "fault" that you perceive in another isn't even there. It is a total misinterpretation, a projection by a mind conditioned to see enemies and to make itself right or superior. At other times, the fault may be there, but by focusing on it, sometimes to the exclusion of everything else, you amplify it. And what you react to in another, you strengthen in yourself.

Non-reaction to the ego in others is one of the most effective ways not only of going beyond ego in yourself but also of dissolving the collective human ego. But you can only be in a state of non-reaction if you can recognize someone's behavior as coming from the ego, as being an expression of the collective human dysfunction. When you realize it's not personal, there is no longer a compulsion to react as if it were. By not reacting to the ego, you will often be able to bring out the sanity in others, which is the unconditioned consciousness as opposed to the conditioned. At times you may have to take practical steps to protect yourself from deeply unconscious people. This you can do without making them into enemies. Your greatest protection, however, is being conscious. Somebody becomes an enemy if you personalize the unconsciousness that is the ego. Non-reaction is forgiveness. To forgive is to overlook, or rather to look through. You look through the ego to the sanity that is in every human being as his or her essence.

The ego loves to complain and feel resentful not only about other people but also about situations. What you can do to a person, you can also do to a situation: make it into an enemy. The implication is always: This should not be happening; I don't want to be here; I don't want to be doing this; I'm being treated unfairly. And the ego's greatest enemy of all is, of course, the present moment, which is to say, life itself.

Complaining is not to be confused with informing someone of a mistake or deficiency so that it can be put right. And to refrain from complaining doesn't necessarily mean putting up with bad quality or behavior. There is no ego in telling the waiter that your soup is cold and needs to be heated up--if you stick to the facts, which are always neutral. "How dare you serve me cold soup..." That's complaining. There is a "me" here that loves to feel personally offended by the cold soup and is going to make the most of it, a "me" that enjoys making someone wrong. The complaining we are talking about is in the service of the ego, not of change. Sometimes it becomes obvious that the ego doesn't really want to change so that it can go on complaining.

See if you can catch, that is to say, notice, the voice in the head, perhaps in the very moment it complains about something, and recognize it for what it is: the voice of the ego, no more than a conditioned mind-pattern, a thought. Whenever you notice that voice, you will also realize that you are not the voice, but the one who is aware of it. In fact, you are the awareness that is aware of the voice. In the background, there is the awareness. In the foreground, there is the voice, the thinker. In this way you are becoming free of the ego, free of the unobserved mind. The moment you become aware of the ego in you, it is strictly speaking no longer the ego, but just an old, conditioned mind-pattern. Ego implies unawareness. Awareness and ego cannot coexist. The old mind-pattern or mental habit may still survive and reoccur for a while because it has the momentum of thousands of years of collective human unconsciousness behind it, but every time it is recognized, it is weakened.

A new age is dawning, a neo-human is emergent within each one of us ... fully conscious, authentically empowered one with the cosmic spirit !

Eckhart Tolle, the author of the bestseller, "The Power Of Now" which has changed millions of lives and continues to do so as more and more people are awakening to a greater spiritual reality encompassing all creation, collectively co-creating a new Earth where the old limiting paradigms of separation & fear are replaced by the divine wisdom of Oneness transforming humanity into fully conscious spiritual super beings, us !

Building on the astonishing success of The Power of Now, Eckhart Tolle presents readers with an honest look at the current state of humanity: He implores us to see and accept that this state, which is based on an erroneous identification with the egoic mind, is one of dangerous insanity.

Tolle tells us there is good news, however. There is an alternative to this potentially dire situation. Humanity now, perhaps more than in any previous time, has an opportunity to create a new, saner, more loving world. This will involve a radical inner leap from the current egoic consciousness to an entirely new one.

In illuminating the nature of this shift in consciousness, Tolle describes in detail how our current ego-based state of consciousness operates. Then gently, and in very practical terms, he leads us into this new consciousness. We will come to experience who we truly are—which is something infinitely greater than anything we currently think we are—and learn to live and breathe freely.

" The One Thing "
by Eckhart Tolle

In the Gospel story of Mary and Martha, Jesus says to Martha, “You are anxious and troubled about many things, but only one thing is needful.” (Luke 10:41)

As I was writing A New Earth, people would sometimes ask me, “What is the new book about?” And invariably, my answer would be, “I only ever write or speak about one thing.” What is that one thing? Spiritual awakening. Can a person be awakened spiritually by a book? Yes, if three conditions are met:

Firstly, there must be a readiness on the part of the reader, an openness, a receptivity to spiritual truth, which is to say, a readiness to awaken. For the first time in history of humanity, large numbers of people have reached that point of readiness, which explains why millions have responded so deeply to The Power of Now.

Secondly, the text must have transformative power. This means the words must have come out of the awakened consciousness rather than the accumulated knowledge of a person’s mind. Only then will a text be charged with that power, a power that goes far beyond the informational value of the words. That is why such a book can be read again and again and lose none of its aliveness.

Thirdly, the terminology used needs to be as neutral as possible so that it transcends the confines of any one culture, religion, or spiritual tradition. Only then will it be accessible to a broad range of readers world-wide, regardless of cultural background.

All these conditions were met in The Power of Now, which is why the book has had such an impact on the collective consciousness.

Why write another book?

Since the publication of The Power of Now, I have given hundreds of talks and teaching sessions all over the world, and in the course of those seven years, the teaching evolved. While the essence remained the same (The Truth is timeless.), new perspectives arose, new signposts, alternative approaches to the Truth, as well as an added sense of urgency. A New Earth reflects this evolution and this urgency.

If The Power of Now worked for you and changed your life – as it did for countless people all over the world – there is no need for you to read A New Earth (although you may enjoy reading it and may find some of it helpful in recognizing the ego and thus sustaining the state of Presence).

My feeling is that A New Earth will make the teaching (the one thing) accessible to an even wider audience, including people who perhaps would not have dreamed of reading a “spiritual” book but have within them a hitherto unrecognized longing for spiritual awakening.

A New Earth will also be extremely helpful for those who read The Power of Now, found it interesting, but somehow missed the essence of it. It presents them with new perspectives on the same truth, new signposts, pointers towards Presence. Different pointers work for different people.

Millions are now ready to awaken because spiritual awakening is not an option anymore, but a necessity if humanity and the planet are to survive. Everything is speeding up – the madness, the collective egoic dysfunction, as well as the arising of the new consciousness, the awakening.

We are running out of time. From the perspective of the ego, that’s bad news and will give rise to fear. From a higher perspective, the running out of time is exactly what is needed for the new consciousness to come into this world.

Paul Grignon's 47-minute animated presentation of "Money as Debt" tells in very simple and effective graphic terms what money is and how it is being created. It is an entertaining way to get the message out. The Cowichan Citizens Coalition and its "Duncan Initiative" received high praise from those who previewed it. I recommend it as a painless but hard-hitting educational tool and encourage the widest distribution and use by all groups concerned with the present unsustainable monetary system in Canada and the United States.

This documentary shows that it would seem natural that money is created by the State, and in fact most Central Banks seem to be owned by the State and run by it. I say "seem" because, to all intents and purposes, it is an apparency. They are almost constituting a "fourth power" in addition to the three legally constituted and well known "traditional" powers, legislative, executive and judicial.

When the State needs money, it does not order the Central Bank to credit some money to the treasury’s account. The State has only two ways to obtain money.

One is taxation of it's citizens, the other is borrowing from the banks. When the Central Bank issues money, this is done in the form of a loan. The State has to borrow this money, and must promise to repay it, with interest.

The same is true of course for a private person who needs money borrowing from a commercial bank. The bank is happy to loan, as long as you can show you have security, and promise to repay with interest.

How can the banks "create" money? That is a good question. Is it not the State's printing office that prints all the banknotes?

Banknotes, when they are printed, are considered the property of the Central Bank. They are not given to the State to spend, but are brought into circulation against a corresponding debt. Anyone wanting some of those notes to spend, has to "buy" them by giving up some of their credit. And in any case, most of the money in circulation (more than 90%) is not banknotes but "credit".

When you go to your bank asking for money, the loan you get is created right there in your bank. The "money" consists of figures on your bank account, and it can be spent writing checks, giving an order to transfer or drawing the cash. Banks only have to have a small percentage of their loaned-out money actually available. The rest can be paid out just by moving some figures from one account to another. The important thing to know: Money is created just by inserting some numbers into a computer.

In practice, it works like this: For every 10.000 a bank gives out as loans, 1000 or 2000 have to be deposited at the central bank. That means, if a bank collects 100.000 in deposits, it could keep 10.000 for liquid cash, put 90.000 into deposit with the central bank, and it is then allowed to create 900.000 of fresh money just by writing the figures on someone’s accounts!

In the case of the government needing money to spend, the procedure is slightly different, but the result is the same. The government has to issue papers that promise interest and repayment. Those papers are "bought" by the banks, who "sell" them to their wealthy clients, or who may also keep them, and the government gets credited an equivalent sum of money.

The irony here is that the government, who should by rights be the issuing authority of the money that circulates in the country, has to borrow the money from privates (through the bank) and that is has to pay interest for this.

Now we start to see why the government never has money, and why much of our taxes go "off the top" of the budget, towards debt service.

The world is changing and it's all happening NOW with the Global Economic Crisis affecting the world at large. Big corporations and major financial institutions downsizing threatens to leave millions jobless by the end of 2009 ! Microsoft, the corporate giant began the year with laying off 5000 in the next 18 months, followed closely by Intel who also intend on losing 5 to 6 thousand of their employees while IBM is estimated to relieve about 16000 employees this year, a number predicted by one Wall Street analyst, the union and some IBM employees, however John Buscemi of IBM corporate media relations said that number was much too high.

The International Labour Organization recently stated that the two years of global financial and economic meltdown could leave over 50 million more people unemployed by the end of 2009 !

Texas Instruments said it will cut 3,400 jobs due to slumping demand. The Dallas-based company said Monday it will slash 1,800 jobs through layoffs and another 1,600 through voluntary retirements and departures. Nationally, Monday's toll also included cuts at Caterpillar, Sprint Nextel, Home Depot and others.

In Europe, the banking and insurance group ING said it would cut 7,000 jobs; the electronics company Philips, 6,000; and the steelmaker Corus, 3,500 worldwide.

Caterpillar, which has been hurt by falling orders for construction and mining machinery, said Monday morning that it would cull 20,000 workers through layoffs and buyouts. It said it would make "sharp declines" in overtime and eliminate scores of temporary and contract jobs.

The company said 2009 would be one of its weakest years since World War II.

Sony in Japan and Ericcson in Sweden each announced 5,000 layoffs; and the motorcycle maker Harley-Davidson said it was eliminating 1,000 jobs. Carmakers in Japan, South Korea and Europe have also cut jobs in recent months as did the cellphone maker Nokia.

"We're now into the danger zone," said Brian Bethune, chief U.S. financial economist at IHS Global Insight. "It really becomes pernicious because the uncertainty increases, corporate confidence is badly battered, and you get these severe measures being taken."

President Barack Obama cited the layoff announcements in remarks Monday morning as he urged action on an $825 billion economic stimulus package of tax cuts, emergency benefits and public spending projects.

"These are not just numbers on a page," Obama said. "As with the millions of jobs lost in 2008, these are working men and women whose families have been disrupted and whose dreams have been put on hold. We owe it to each of them and to every single American to act with a sense of urgency and common purpose. We can't afford distractions, and we cannot afford delays."

The U.S. economy has dropped 2.59 million jobs since the recession began in December 2007, and unemployment rose to 7.2 percent last month. Some analysts worry that the economy could now be losing as many as 600,000 jobs a month, and they said Monday's layoff (26th January) announcements served to underline the stricken state of the labor market.

It's time NOW to awaken from the materialistic dream we've been living and step into a new age of Peace & Oneness where all creation is seen with reverence and where corruption and greed become lessons in history from the Dark Ages ! It's the time to shift our world view ... to be the change ! Growing your own food and relying on the sun for our energy needs seems to be a good way to go this time around ...

Together we will co-create the Golden Age !

Richard C. Hoagland the man behind the Enterprise Mission Website is a former museum space science Curator and science advisor to CBS News during the Apollo Missions to the Moon. In 1966 he served as NBC consultant for the soft landing of the U.S. spacecraft Surveyor 1 on the moon.

His writings suggest that advanced civilizations exist or once existed on the moon, Mars and on some of the moons of Jupiter and Saturn, and that NASA and the United States government collaborated to keep these facts secret. His opinions have never been published in peer-reviewed journals. He has published two books, several videotapes, lectures, documentaries and interviews, and press conferences. He has submitted material to a NASA-sponsored public interest outreach.

Based on Hyperdimensional Physics, Richard C. Hoagland successfully predicted the historic results of this election almost two years ago ! Hoagland, along with Thomas E. Bearden, propose a form of physics that they call 'Hyperdimensional Physics', which they claim represents the full implementation of James Clerk Maxwell's equations, instead of the commonly understood versions of these equations as modified by Oliver Heaviside. A tenet of these views holds that vast amounts of energy originating from dimensions we cannot perceive are available at latitudes 19.5° both south and north on the sun and every planet in the solar system. Quite, synchronistically, Barack Obama was born in Hawaii which is also at 19.5° N among the other interesting parallels drawn by Hoagland in this fantastically informative documentary on Obama and 2012.

From all about Torsion Fields, the Moon, the Galactic Centre, the prophecy of 2012 from various perspectives such as the beginning of the Satya Yuga as per the ancient Vedas, the Mayan Long Count Calendar which ends on Dec, 21st 2012 ... Richard Hoagland shares some really incredible information on what's going on and how we are the ones we've been waiting for, a Hopi proverb which Obama used during his election campaign ... Hoagland also mentions Orbs at Obama gatherings and their spectacular interdimensional manifestation seen thanks to Digital Cameras today !

In this production, based on further application of this HD Model, Hoagland now presents never-before-seen clues to what America and the world may expect from this incoming, unique "Hyperdimensional Obama Administration" -- including, what Barack Obama may finally do with NASA's decades of classified data on intelligent artifacts discovered on the Moon and Mars, as well as what could be in store for all of us at the end of Obama's first term ... in "2012."

Welcome to our community... In Sanskrit, the word Veda means life. The Vedic tradition of knowledge, which is often referred to as Vedanta, deals with the meaning of life, the purpose of life, and the place of life in the universe as a whole. According to Vedanta, there are two symptoms of enlightenment. They are indications that a transformation is taking place within you toward a higher level of consciousness.

The first symptom is that you stop worrying. Things do not bother you anymore. You become lighthearted and full of joy. The second symptom is that you encounter more and more meaningful coincidences in your life, more and more synchronicities -- and this accelerates to the point where you actually experience the miraculous. A miracle is just a synchronistic event in which the time span between the intention of an event and the manifestation of the event is dramatically shortened. That is what synchronicity is all about, and that is what spirituality is about, too. Whatever spiritual tradition you study anywhere in the world, you also hear about miracles. So losing your worries is one symptom of enlightenment and increased synchronicity is the second one. And that is it. Those are the only two symptoms of enlightenment.

Whether you are a vegetarian or not, it really does not matter. Whether you believe in the peace movement or not, it does not matter. After all, there are a lot of people who believe in lots of things; but they are full of worries and they cannot sleep at night. They have a big burden on their shoulders. A person might have been in a monastery for thirty years, but it does not matter. They are not moving in the right direction. Because according to Vedanta there are only two symptoms that indicate that we are becoming intimate with the spirit.

What Is Synchrodestiny ?

So you can see why I consider this program on synchronicity, or meaningful coincidence, to be a very important one. It is especially important because, in my opinion, synchronicity is not something that just happens by itself -- just as spiritual development does not happen by itself. We can foster synchronicity by introducing attention; and we can use synchronicity by introducing intention. When those two elements--attention and intention -- are linked to the phenomenon of meaningful coincidence, synchronicity is transformed into SynchroDestiny, and our lives are transformed into something that is truly magical.

The purpose of this program is to show what that means, and to explain in detail exactly how you can make it happen. The first time I heard about synchronicity was for me a synchronistic event. I was reading about Carl Jung, the Swiss psychologist, on a plane flight from New Delhi to London and then from London to New York. Jung was an early colleague of Freud, but they eventually had some fundamental disagreements. Freud believed that altered states of consciousness were essentially forms of psychosis -- forms of insanity; but Jung thought of altered states as the capacity to be in touch with a hidden reality. One of Jung's most important books is called "Dreams, Premonitions, and Wishes."

As I was reading this book on the plane from India to England, Jung was discussing about a patient who had described a dream. In this dream there was a very large beetle, a scarab beetle, and it was trying to break through the patient's window into his bedroom. As the patient was describing this dream to Carl Jung, they heard a rattle, and Jung looked around and saw that a beetle was trying to break in through the windowpane. So this was a synchronistic event. The fellow was describing his dream, and then that very thing happened in real life, just at the moment that he was describing it. So I was reading about this on the airplane. Then a few pages later the book said that because of their great differences, Jung and Freud finally parted ways, and Jung established a practice in Lucerne, Switzerland. Just at the moment that I read that sentence, the pilot announced that if you look out your window on the right side of the plane, we are flying over Lucerne, Switzerland. So immediately I was convinced that there was some message here for me, that I was going to pursue this topic of synchronicity I have been thinking about that topic ever since, and out of it has evolved this new concept of SynchroDestiny. In your own life, the more you become aware of these events, the more they will happen.

The more attention you put on synchronicity the more frequently you will encounter it. Because there is a very important principle that says whatever you put your attention on becomes stronger. If you withdraw your attention from something, it becomes weaker. So one of the first things I would like to suggest, on a practical level, is that you start paying attention to the synchronistic events that happen in your life. The more alert you are to them, the more they will happen. And then when you introduce intention, your intentions will be expressed and manifested through these events. So to sum this up for a moment, synchronicity is always a coming together of seemingly unlikely events. On the surface it seems like pure coincidence. But in reality there is much more to it than that. So right now at the outset, let me suggest something very practical that you should begin to do. Start putting attention on the synchronistic events that happen in your life -- and also introduce the intention that you will experience at least one synchronistic event each day. Then later, have the intention of experiencing at least two synchronistic events. Gradually you will see these things begin to accelerate in your life, because attention and intention makes any phenomenon grow stronger.

What is Synchronicity ?

"Synchronicity can be defined as a non-causal but meaningful relationship between events or states of mind within the human psyche and events in the outside world. More simply, we could call it the experiences of "meaningful coincidence". We have all had experiences that we intuitively recognize as meaningful, though we would be hard pressed to explain them in rational terms. In fact, these "meaningful coincidences" are not coincidences at all but spontaneous realizations of the underlying interconnectedness of all things within the Universe."

Laurence Boldt - Tao of Abundance

As Heraclitus put it, "The unseen design of things is more harmonious than the seen."
James Redfield, in the 'Celestine Prophecy', describes the first insight which is about following meaningful coincidences. Coincidences, if followed through, are seen as away of evolving, to a higher level of vibration. When we are in the flow we experience more synchronous events, more pleasure and less pain. The flow of coincidences is our path to higher ground.

If you bump into someone you haven't met in a long time then it is advisable to stop and talk to them. Be aware of a message that they might have for you. Follow the coincidence through and you'll be amazed, as I am, on a increasingly regular basis!

Coincidences are often a sign that you are going with the flow of life, doing what your heart desires (divine will) and following your in-tuition (inner guidance - gut feeling).

Meaningful Coincidences fill us with a sense of awe, even shock, as we experience more and more unexplainable similarities with our thought patterns and our experienced reality ! The emergent has it's seed sown in the garden of thought.

Be prepared to take off!!

The magic of coincidence is the magic of consciousness that creates and shapes all matter in the cosmos. There is meaning in all that comes forth, though sometimes our intellect clouds the message coming through ... The random events which bring about a mystical coincidence are something you should probably be paying more attention to as there seems to be a message coming through from the invisible universe.

Consciousness drives certain unseen forces which create our experience and by living a life that is conscious and with intent, we begin to change at an individual level which affects everything and everyone around us like the domino effect sending ripples of energy across Mother Gaia and throughout the infinite cosmos.

Greetings, beloved friends, we are the Arcturians, here with an important segment on the nature of time and space alternate realities. This is a complex subject that very few humans understand. It is not an easy subject to discuss due to the limitations of your language.

This channel has put forth some rather basic information, with our assistance, in the past, but we have not gone into depth and there are many areas relatively unexplored and yet to be understood.

In order to communicate these ideas, we must use analogies, much as your scientists of superstring theory do. In one such analogy, scientists use the concepts of "Flatlanders", or people living in two dimensions, to examine what happens when three-dimensional reality impinges on their flat world. We will use a similar analogy in describing multidimensional time and space fluctuations.

The popular analogy regarding time and space is that it resembles a tapestry or quilt, with time-space realities interwoven like a fabric across a virtually infinite panorama. This panorama represents dimensions beyond time and space. Keep in mind that time and space are the threads of the fabric, not the fabric itself. Within this fabric are what we call timelines, or threads that are given energy and life, i.e., creation. A timeline is a continuity of time and space that has been given consciousness by God's Creator Sons. We are Creator Sons.

You are Creator Sons. Creator Sons are souls with the consciousness of God imbedded within them, and that means EVERY soul in Creation. Beloveds, you were created in the image and likeness of your Creator.

Your Creator brought into the universe many tapestries of light, love, wisdom and power. Among these is the tapestry of time-space. You, as junior creators, are given domain over this tapestry of time and space. In other words, you are given the authority to create timelines (and spacelines) within the tapestry.

Whenever a thought or spark of consciousness is rendered unto the tapestry of time-space, a timeline is created. If the timeline is created by an individual soul, it resembles light filaments or fiber optic wires lighting up with electricity against a dark background. Whenever two or more souls join in consciousness within a given timeline, the ignited strand of fabric grows in brightness and intensity until it leaves a sizable imprint on the tapestry. Timelines that have the collaboration of millions of souls (such as the timeline of planet Earth) have great brightness and power. You could say in your limited vernacular that collective timelines are stronger and more "real" than individual timelines, although this is not entirely accurate.

There are an infinite number of possible timelines, and a finite number of probable timelines. Probable timelines are those fabrics that are given a great deal of consciousness. If there are almost seven billion individual souls on your planet and six billion of them are giving consciousness and focus to a particular timeline, that timeline becomes a probable reality, meaning that the reality "dominates" the surrounding threads of the tapestry, leaving a great imprint on the Akashic medium.

The Akashic medium is similar to what you call a camera, or snapshot, or photograph, in that it records the movement and manifestation of timelines within the tapestry. All activity with the time-space matrix is recorded in the Akashic medium and can be recalled by anyone versed in Akashic retrieval. You can think of the Akashic as a giant universal computer memory bank with infinite storage space.

Souls can recall a particular event along a particular timeline simply by accessing the Akashic.

Although individual souls cannot change Akashic imprints directly, they can dynamically alter the intensity and experience along each individual timeline. When a soul alters a timeline, the quality and intensity of that timeline changes. However, because the Akashic continually records imprints in the medium, every change, no matter how minute, is imprinted as if it were a static occurrence in time and space. This, although ultimately illusion, gives the appearance that reality is a solid, unchanging linear progression, and that once something has occurred in time and space, it remains forever unchanged.

In this series of lessons, we will explore the truth about changing timelines, altering timelines and jumping timelines. This is an advanced series, currently beyond the capability of the channel and most humans to fully comprehend. We will attempt to go slowly and hopefully will not lose anyone. It is perhaps unfortunate that the limitations of this language mean that we are bound somewhat by the third-dimensional laws and limitations when disseminating this information. Therefore, it will, of necessity, be given in a linear manner, with varying complexity, in a series of small parts so that the reader does not feel overwhelmed or lose interest due to its length.

Every moment of every day, in linear time, souls are creating new possible and probable timelines in the infinite fabric of time-space. Every thought in your consciousness changes, however imperceptibly, the nature of the fabric. In any given moment, you have an infinite number of possible paths to choose in order to manifest your next moment of creation. Most of your actions, thoughts and experiences will proceed along predictable timelines of mass creation. For example, you have a collective timeline called evolution of planet Earth, which proceeds with relative stability, even though there are a number of variables. As an example, one minute from now you will probably be doing something similar to what you are doing now. Perhaps the physical location of your body will change somewhat, perhaps different thoughts will flow through your mind, perhaps you will get up from your computer and turn on the television, etc. However, your body will still occupy the same general space on a planet hurtling through space at tremendous speeds around the center of the galaxy.

The collective timelines are constantly changing. To illustrate, let us dive into the basic physics of your planet. There are five general movements of the Earth through time and space. The first is the rotation of Earth on its axis, occurring once in what you call a day.

Then there is the revolution of the Earth about the sun, occurring once in what you call a year. Then there is the precession of the solar system as it moves through your region of the galaxy, which is known as a Grand Cycle of approximately 25,920 years.

Then you have the movement of this region of space around the central sun of the Milky Way Galaxy, which occurs about every 225 million years. Finally, you have the movement of the Milky Way Galaxy through and around the Great Central Sun of the universe, which occurs about every 20 billion years. All of these movements are actually spirals, not circles, although the smaller ones appear circular or elliptical because you cannot see the higher dimension interactions involved.

The point in diverging into basic physics is to illustrate that even your collective timelines (the ones large numbers of souls have agreed to create) are constantly changing, even though they change in a periodic fashion through what you call cycles, or repeated passes through a spiral progression.

As we said earlier, this material is a challenge to present in a manner you can grasp. We feel we must break at this time to give you a chance to assimilate what we have given so far. We will continue this discussion at a very short time in your linear future. We are the Arcturians.

Part 2 :

Greetings again, beloveds. We are continuing the series on alternate timelines. As we stated before, this is a vast subject and one that is very poorly understood by most of your scientists and philosophers.

Today we will take a look at something called “time compression”. This is the relative effect of time and space on the different densities or dimensions of existence. For the sake of this discussion, we will equate dimension with density, although technically they are not identical ideas.

In your world of entertainment there are science “fiction” shows that often come close to describing higher density concepts. One such show, part of your “Star Trek” series, involved a race of invading beings that vibrated at a higher rate than humans. They were invisible to the crew of the Enterprise, but sounded like insects buzzing about. Some of you may recall that episode. At one point, the captain and some crew members drink a substance placed in their coffee that enables them to vibrate at the rate of the invaders. When the crew members entered the vibratory rate of this race, the rest of the crew appeared to be in very slow motion, almost stopped.

Late in the episode, the higher vibrating crew members, in cooperation with the aliens, made repairs to the ship at what seemed to be “lightning speed” relative to the rest of the crew.

Many of you are aware that the great archangels and ascended masters, as well as some of our own people, work with hundreds, if not thousands of Earth souls. Have you often wondered how a particular ascended being can have thousands of channels, contactees and healing subjects? Where does Archangel Michael find the time to come to so many humans? Could it be that time takes on a whole different meaning when you are vibrating at a rate equivalent to the archangels?

Not only can a highly advanced being speed up time, or slow it down, but he/she can also move into the past and future time segments. “Compressed” time means that a highly evolved being can experience a few seconds and during that few seconds millions of years has passed on Earth. At the same time, such a being can go about Earth, giving healings, communicating telepathically, disseminating teachings, repairing psychic “holes” in Earth’s atmosphere, and many other tasks, in what amounts to the passing of a few seconds of Earth time.

So in other words, time can be sped up or slowed down as the ascended being sees fit, depending on what tasks are to be performed. Note that all tasks of an ascended being must follow the structures of human free will. Also note that when working in future time segments, actions taking place in the past and present will affect the probabilities of the future timelines. This will be the next area of exploration.

Many of you have a hard time grasping the concept of future timelines. Yes, it is possible to examine and participate in what you call the future, but it is like a canvas that has a partial picture that constantly changes, depending on what is taking place in your past and present. Let’s say you are a painter and you don’t like a particular colour on your canvas. You can paint over it or remove it with paint thinner and repaint to your heart’s content. The future is similar to this. We, and many ascended beings, can view the constantly changing panorama of the future, make changes when it is in your best interests to do so, and watch the resulting tapestry change again. Any changes we make to a future timeline will affect your past and present timelines. Time is not linear. It does not go one way. It is permeable and malleable. Your scientists doing their “quantum entanglement” experiments have discovered this. You ask why it is not discussed in your “mainstream” physics. This is because of the enormous implications it has on your concept of “linear time.”

Ultimately, time and space are illusory, meaning that they change as your perception changes. However, within that illusory nature are many levels and dimensions of perception. Your perception that time is linear keeps you in a box, so to speak. Your whole world is predicated upon keeping that illusion consistent. Now many of you are finding the perception that time is speeding up, and that is a collective experience that happens as you raise your vibration. However, at the same time you will find, some of you, that you can accomplish far more in a smaller period of linear time. In fact, some of you have been through what you would call many lifetimes of growth in just the last linear year of your world. So in a way, time is a paradox in that as it is compressed, you use both more of it and less of it at the same time.

There are, of course, other factors that affect your perception of time. All time intersects in what is commonly called the eternal now. There are entire philosophies based on the idea that the only time that truly exists is the eternal now. This channel, and others, have drawn diagrams explaining the difference between horizontal time and vertical time. The eternal now can be thought of as a vertical plane that intersects countless past, present and future probability lines of horizontal time. When a soul is aware of the eternal now, he/she can “ride the elevator” up and down through the horizontal timelines, experiencing past, present and future probabilities at will.

The realms of time and space can be likened to a canvas upon which the creator gods (you and us) paint their pictures. We are all learning to create like our Infinite Creator. Time and space represent the canvas and the mediums necessary to paint the pictures of creation. Whether or not the picture turns out to be lovely or grotesque depends on our state of consciousness. The more a soul evolves and expands awareness, the more tools are available to paint the picture, and the more latitude is given regarding the boundaries of the canvas.

There are a natural set of safeguards built into the fabric of time and space. A soul that is not sufficiently evolved will be unable to make use of many of the features of the artist’s laboratory. Can you imagine the chaos if any soul at any level of vibration could change time and space on a whim? Even free will has its limitations. Souls are not allowed to make significant changes to a timeline if it violates the free will of other souls or deprives those souls of needed experience. This is why, for example, we cannot go back and prevent Atlantis from sinking. There are too many souls who needed to have that experience. Yes, we can change the consciousness surrounding that event and help souls heal the guilt, pain and sorrow associated with that event. As we help souls heal from traumatic events in the past, the present and future changes in beneficial ways. This is a cooperative effort between us and the souls we work with.

We could spend a considerable time discussing the limitations of free will and how free will affects timelines, but for now, this is enough to contemplate. We will be back with you in the near future. This is the end of Part 2. We are the Arcturians.

My Beloved Ones, I greet you this day in eternal joy, as part of your planet is in the midst of spring and the other is in the midst of autumn. As the affairs of your world continue to be turbulent, I ask you to remember that without turbulence there is no change. Humanity must experience that which is undesirable before it can propel change. The collective consciousness of Earth is a group energy comprised of the energies of all the humans and life forms which live on the planet. What you experience in your world is a product of your collective pool of thought.

Because your plane has long been in the lower frequencies of fear, it is a karmic plane. As you have co-created with those of us in the higher planes to bring increased light frequencies into the Earth plane, it is now possible to live "without karma". This is possible for individuals who have raised their own personal frequency enough to transmute their own personal karma. It will not be possible for humans, as a collective consciousness, to live free of karma until it is transmuted on a collective basis as well. This is the process you are undergoing now, my Beloved Ones, the transmutation of the collective karma of Earth. Each one of you are assisting in this as you pursue the raising of your own frequencies as fully embodied consciousness.

The law of karma is a cosmic law. It is not one which is based on rewards and punishments, but one based upon the focus of thought, individual and collective. The law of karma exists upon the judgment of good and evil. As soon as one, or a group, begin to judge the polarities on which experience is based, then the one, or the group must experience both sides of the polarity. This cosmic law is also sometimes stated as "that which you resist, you will draw to yourself to experience." The only way to transmute karma is to respond to the type of experience which has created the karma in a different way; a way that is beyond fear and judgment.

This holds true for the individual and the collective. The only way your human societies will be transformed is by humanity responding in a different way to the same repetitive experiences that it has created time and time again. You, as individuals, are part of the collective; an extremely important part. You are the bearers of the Light frequencies into the Earth plane, and by transmuting your own karma within yourselves; you are making great changes in the collective consciousness as well. Many of you came to your human embodiments without karma. Did you know that? You chose to come here from the higher dimensions above duality in order to assist humanity in its ascension.

You created karma for yourselves, though, in your present embodiments, because Earth is a karmic plane. At the time of your arrivals here, it was impossible to do otherwise than create personal karma. When one takes embodiment in a plane of fear, where the standards of good and evil are embedded so deeply in the collective consciousness, one cannot really avoid creating personal karma. The influence of the collective is too strong. There was another important reason that you created karma for yourselves as well. You created it specifically for the purpose of transmuting it. You came to Earth equipped with the higher consciousness to be able to do that; to respond to the karmic experiences in a way which would not have been possible for the masses of humanity.

If you are following with me so far, you will remember that each individual consciousness is a part of the collective consciousness. As each one of you transmutes your individual karma by rising above fear and judgment, you are a powerful stimulus to the transmutation of the karma of the collective. When karma is transmuted, there is always change, upheaval, as the karmic patterns are broken. This will be true whether in your own life or with the events of your world. Since the evolution your world is undertaking now is an accelerated one, the karmic transmutation is also accelerated. For this reason, there are many turbulent events occurring in your world, and they shall continue to do so until the collective karma is transmuted.

There are still many of you who are very fearful about what is happening around you, and very concerned that the world situations are not improving. Gently, I remind you, my Beloved Ones, that it is your own fear and judgment that perpetuates the karmic patterns. Humans have lived in fear and judgment of one another for a very long time. That fear and judgment is what creates the situations of human against human that you so deplore. To judge and condemn another human, or group of humans will only create more of that which you do not desire.

There are a vast number of voices speaking to you, both from within your plane and without. Some of these voices are focused towards the empowerment of humanity and others are focused toward perpetuating the fear and duality. You will become very confused listening to these voices, as each one has a different story to tell. Some of them are telling you stories in order to serve their own ends, which do not include the transmutation of the collective karma of Earth. As Earth has entered the age of technology, the sources of information, of stories are virtually endless. To look for your answers and your truth amidst this huge amount of information is a fruitless task, one which will ultimately lead you around to the same karmic circles as in the past.

My Beloved Ones, once again I encourage you to focus upon your own inner being and look to transmute your personal karma by rising above fear and judgment. Withdraw into the stillness of your own hearts to find your own truth and do not look to others to supply it to you. That truth that you adopt from outside of yourself will be incomplete and unfulfilling. You are the brilliantly shining Lights of this evolution of human consciousness. It is you who are in the forefront of transmuting your planetary karma. Embrace these changes that are happening in your world, as they are the precursors to the great change you seek and are longing for. By denying them and condemning them, you are merely binding yourself to the old patterns once again.

There is an extraordinary Divine Alchemy also happening with your planet and humanity as it experiences this karmic transmutation. The roots of a new human evolution are taking hold. Through the changes that will occur in your lives and in your world over the next years, a human society of Oneness will indeed be birthed. If there is no change, no upheaval which causes the old ways and systems to be evaluated and dispensed with, then no evolution is possible. As it is throughout the entire cosmos. The realization of desire is not made clear in the absence of that which is not desired. It is that which is not desired which defines that which is.

My Beloved Ones, that choice to move beyond fear and into your own empowerment has never been more important. By moving beyond fear, you will transmute your own karma, and also assist in transmuting that of the collective. I encourage you, each and every one, to begin or continue writing your own stories, rather than looking for your own power through the stories of others. You will not find it there, in the next group, cause, organization, agenda. You will not find it on the television, on the internet, in the newspapers, at the movies.

You will not even find it through your spiritual circles, because your own power can only be drawn from within yourself. You may find assistance and inspiration through your connections with others, but it is you alone that can make that choice to overcome fear and take your power. You have really not begun to write your own stories yet if you are still living in fear and looking for truth outside of yourself. You begin to write your own story from a place of power within. Unless you have begun to write your own story, then you will not know which of the other stories are in resonance with your own. The other stories will continue to confuse you and create fear within you.

My Beloved Ones, these times on planet Earth are about your own personal ascension, and from the ascension of each one of you, the collective will also be able to ascend. All you need concern yourselves with is your own ascension, your own moving out of the frequencies of fear and karma. As you do this, the collective will also reflect this transmutation of karma. There is no one more important to this planetary ascension process than "you" – the individual who is reading this message right now. Your own karmic transmutation is vitally important to that of the whole. There are no exceptions. Each one of you is key personnel and you are up to the job. I come with messages in order to remind you of that on many levels of your being. Your essence is Love, rather than fear, and you are loved, more than you can know.

I AM Metatron, I AM With You Always !

Rick Strassman was permitted to embark on the first human research with psychedelic, hallucinogenic, or entheogenic substances in the 1990s in the United States after 20 years' intermission in the field. In the intermission period it has only been legally possible to research on animals.

Strassman's studies investigated the effects of N,N-dimethyltryptamine (DMT), a powerful entheogen, or psychedelic, that he theorizes is a substance produced by the human brain in the pineal gland and an active ingredient in the Ayahuasca brew. Ayahuasca is any of the various psychoactive infusions or decoctions prepared from the Banisteriopsis spp. vine, native to the Amazon Rainforest (which is also called ayahuasca). The resulting drinks are pharmacologically complex and used for shamanic, folk-medicinal, and religious purposes. Occidental ethno-biologists have noted a variety of 200-300 plants used in the different brews made by the Ayahuasceras. It is an open question whether Ayahuasca should be noted as one particular shamanic medicinal brew, or that it should be noted as an entire medicinal tradition alongside, for instance, Ayurveda or Tibetan Medicine.

During the project's five years, he administered approximately 400 doses of DMT to 60 human volunteers. This research took place at the University of New Mexico's School of Medicine in Albuquerque, New Mexico where he was tenured Associate Professor of Psychiatry. Strassman has conjectured that when a person is approaching death, the pineal gland releases DMT, accounting for much of the imagery reported by survivors of near-death experiences.

Strassman wrote about the research program in his book DMT: The Spirit Molecule. A documentary movie based on this book is currently in production.

Dear Friends:

Consciousness is a subject of increasing scientific inquiry in the West. One particular aspect of this research involves how psychoactive medicines affect consciousness. We at the Cottonwood Research Foundation will begin to address some of the most perplexing mysteries of the human mind with the aid of plant-based psychoactive compounds. For example, What are the varieties of human consciousness, and their genetic, biochemical and physiological bases? What are the medical, social, and spiritual implications of these different states, and how can we best apply these states towards healing, creativity, and greater wisdom?

For thousands of years, historical and indigenous cultures have used plant medicines to reliably induce extraordinarily compelling non-ordinary and mystical states of consciousness. Western science has only begun to tap the vast resources of traditional knowledge regarding these plants and their effects. By bringing to bear multiple scientific, anthropological, and spiritual perspectives, we will pursue several important goals: 1) develop a more thorough understanding of these plantsâ?? psychological and physical healing properties; 2) explore the states they elicit, in order to gain a deeper and broader understanding of the range of human consciousness; 3) determine how plant-based psychoactive medicines affect consciousness; and 4) clarify the role these compounds, found in our own bodies, play in dreams, mystical and near-death states, creativity, and mental illness.

The work I performed during the early-1990â??s at the University of New Mexico with DMT, a naturally occurring psychoactive, was the first new clinical research with these compounds in the US in two decades. Our founding of Cottonwood is intended to help revitalize the lagging pace of American research with this and other classical psychoactive compounds since my studies were interrupted in 1995.

We have already started our first research project. Our vice-president Dr. Steven Barker at Louisiana State University is developing a new ultra-sensitive method of measuring naturally occurring DMT and related compounds in the body. By doing so, we will be able to compare normal levels with those found in naturally occurring highly altered states and clinical conditions. We also held our inaugural fund-raiser in Taos, in which Beatriz Labate, a noted Brazilian anthropologist, presented her field research concerning the burgeoning Brazilian ayahuasca religions movement.

Our most enduring legacy will be the establishment of a thriving, independent research center in northern New Mexico structured in the manner of an institute of higher learning, with treatment, education, and research departments and activities. This campus will include living and dining accommodations, research, laboratory, and information technology facilities, a greenhouse, library, and classrooms. Integral to our vision is a vigorous exchange program with indigenous healers and teachers, which will inform our development of new models for the study and application of plant-based psychoactive medicines.

We invite you to help us build a strong foundation for a new model of consciousness studies in the West. It is only with your support and involvement that we can make this dream a reality.

We welcome any and all contributions, monetary or in-kind. All donations are tax deductible, as Cottonwood is a 501(c)3 tax-exempt organization. ( http://cottonwoodresearch.org/Donate.html )

THE SPIRIT MOLECULE weaves an account of Dr. Rick Strassman's groundbreaking DMT research through a multifaceted approach to this intriguing hallucinogen found in the human brain and hundreds of plants. Utilizing interviews with a variety of experts to explain their thoughts and experiences with DMT within their respective fields, and discussions with Strassmanâ??s research volunteers brings to life the awesome effects of this compound, and far-reaching theories regarding its role in human consciousness .

Several themes explored include possible roles for endogenous DMT; its theoretical role in near-death and birth experiences, alien-abduction experiences; and the uncanny similarities in Biblical prophetic texts describing DMT-like experiences. Our expert contributors offer a comprehensive collection of information, opinions, and speculation about indigenous use of DMT, the history and future of psychedelic research, and current DMT research. All this, to help us understand the nature of the DMT experience, and its role in human society and evolution.

The subtle combination of science, spirituality, and philosophy within the filmâ??s approach sheds light on an array of ideas that could considerably alter the way humans understand the universe and their relationship to it.
