Subject: Feedbacks on the idea of a decentralized Millennium Gathering and much much more

Hello everyone

Just a quick note to say that I received some other interesting feedbacks to my recent email about a simplified and localized/decentralized version of the Millennium Gathering project and millennial celebrations. Keep them coming. Through our collective mind and each of our unique and most essential perspectives, it's now taking shape.

I've also included afterwards some other complementary ideas and actions for your consideration.

Love and blessings to all of you

A WISE RECOMMENDATION FROM SOMEONE WITH LOTS OF EXPERIENCE...

Jean:

If you are going to do something at the turn of the Millennium, I strongly
recommend that it be decentralized and not subject to disruption.

I think that using the weekend for reflection on the world we want might be
a viable way to go.

We are doing something similar to this in Australia but in October.

Blessings and Peace,

We need new goals for the 21st century: a high quality of life, social cohesion, ecological integrity and effective decision-making. These will only be possible within a radically new way of seeing the world from an organic, system-theory, spiritual viewpoint. For more on this see:

(A WEBSITE MOST CERTAINLY WORTH EXPLORING...)




THE VISION OF A FUTURE UNIFIED WORLD, WHERE WE WILL ALL BE LIVING IN PEACE AND HARMONY WITH NATURE, A VISION THAT HAS BEEN HELD FOR CENTURIES BY THE WISE ONES OF THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE AND ROOT RELIGIONS - SEE BELOW - IS AT THE VERY CENTER OF THE VISION OF THE MILLENNIUM GATHERING, A MOMENT TO ANCHOR GLOBALLY THIS AWARENESS THAT WE ARE THE ONES TO MANIFEST THIS VISION IN OUR LIFETIME.

NOT ONLY WE CANNOT FAIL, BECAUSE OTHERWISE THE FUTURE WOULD BE TOO GRIM TO CONTEMPLATE, BUT IT IS ALREADY "WRITTEN IN THE SKY". ACCORDING TO WHAT ALMOST EVERYONE WHO DID A "PROGRESSION" (AS OPPOSED TO A "REGRESSION" IN THE PAST, A PROGRESSION IS A GUIDED IMAGERY THAT SETS MEDITATING PEOPLE A FEW DECADES IN THE FUTURE TO EXPLORE WHAT OUR PLANET WILL LOOK LIKE), THIS IS JUST WHAT IS IN STORE FOR THOSE OF US WHO WILL STILL BE THERE TO EXPERIENCE THIS GOLDEN AGE. OVER 90% OF THOSE WHO GET SUCH PROPHETIC VISIONS SEE A PLANET THAT IS MIRACULOUSLY BACK FROM THE BRINK, GREEN ALL OVER AGAIN, WITH HUMANS LIVING PEACEFULLY TOGETHER AND HARMONIOUSLY *WITHIN* NATURE AND ALL EXPERIENCING A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF SPIRITUAL AWARENESS. THE "ATMOSPHERE" OF OUR FUTURE, ACCORDING TO THOSE WHO "WENT" THERE, IS IMBUED WITH LOVE AND A PASSIONATE DRIVE TO SERVE AND EVOLVE TOWARDS A GREATER BODY-SOUL INTEGRATION WITH THE UNIVERSAL SPIRIT.

Thank you

Asqauli, Dear Friends and All our Relations,

Sending good thoughts and loving prayers for peace and balance to all
your homes and hearts. As the days of spring are drawing to a close I want To
take this opportunity to share the events, prayers and latest news here at
Touch The Earth Foundation.

WORLD PEACE AND PRAYER DAY 1999

Today we prepare to leave for Costa Rica on Sunday to participate and assist
with "World Peace and Prayer Day" in service to Chief Arvol Looking Horse.
http://www.worldpeaceday.com/1999/. You are encouraged to contact the
organizing committee's if you are planning an event at your place of worship.
We are Calling all peoples to A Prayer Circle in support of World Peace and
Prayers. Can you join us in Costa Rica in person or in spirit?

As I recall in 1996 the first "WPPD" a call came out of Lakota country a call
loud and clear, of a time of Vision and Prophecy.
http://indy4.fdl.cc.mn.us/~isk/arvol/arv_cer1.html

The same call had been echoing through out many other Indigenous Peoples and
root religions. Sometimes a Song, sometimes a Vision, Sometimes a Sacred
Fire, often the Worlds Events gave notice to those with eyes to see and ears
to hear "Awaken". Awaken to ancient words whispered in the night and sacred
ceremonies, promises and oaths, whispered by those that have gone before us
and left instructions for us to follow. Often the only witness would be the
mother earth and the keen eyes and ears of the Holy Peoples. Quietly in the
midnight hours, or on a sunny afternoon. Quietly setting at a grandmothers or
grandfathers knee they came, the instructions, warnings, the understanding
the spirit words, "There will be a day, A Day will Come, This day - maybe in
your life time - maybe in your childrens, but A Day will Come! The world will
be at a turning point, and you, you my children will have to decide. Will you
be strong enough not to let "IT" happen in your generation? Will we lead
ourselves into destruction? Will we "Unite the Peoples," all the peoples of
the world in prayer and a better life for all? The Hopi Elders tell us it is
only through a Spiritual Peace we will come Together as the Human Family and
bring Balance back to land and life. Which will we choose?

The Elders have told us the very survival of the Human Family depended on our
success, if we were to survive and leave a future to our children. The Old
ones have said, "our very existence here on mother earth is decided by the
prayer of mankind and the leadership of the Holy Peoples". WE must act on
instructions that had been passed down mouth to ear since the dawn of time.
As of today we are still reaching for a future of beauty and peace for our
children and Seventh Generations. We need your help and hope you will take
our hand and pray on June 21, 1999. "As Together with all Nations We May Hold
This World In Balance".

June 21, 1996, Over Two Thousand "Helpers, Bundle Keepers, Elders, Holy
Peoples and Medicine Keepers" Sacred fires kindled with the Spark of the
first creation stories lit the nighttime sky around the world. And our
prayers set forth the Intention and Purpose; the time had come to gather the
peoples.

The time had come to declare Peace! On Horse back, Chief Looking Horse took a
band of seekers and Believers back into time and road for peace and returned
to Devils Tower Wyoming to pray for peace and remind the world of the sacred
story, a sacred promise of White Buffalo Calf Woman.
http://worldpeaceday.com/1999/whitebuffalo.html

"This year we are completing the circle to the South direction in Costa Rica.
This journey started in 1996 at Grey Horn Butte, Wyoming and circled to the
North in 1997, to the Cree Nation of the Joseph Big Head Reservation, and
then to the East at the Sacred Pipestone Quarries in 1998. Costa Rica has
been chosen as the Southern site to complete the circle because of the need
to support what is already established there with the efforts of the
University of Peace and its non-military existence. We are inviting the
surrounding Indigenous Peoples of the South and all Indigenous people of the
world to either join us or go to their sacred site if it is not possible to
journey to Costa Rica."

SO LET'S ALL PLAN TO BE TOGETHER WITH OTHER KINDRED SPIRITS AT YOUR PREFERRED SACRED PLACE THIS COMING JUNE 21 AND LIT A FIRE - FIGURATIVELY AND LITERALLY SPEAKING - OF COMPELLING RADIATIONS OF LOVE AND UNITY ENFOLDING AND HOLDING MOTHER EARTH AND ALL LIVING SENTIENT BEINGS TOGETHER IN PEACE.




FROM SOMEONE WHO IS VERY ACTIVE FOR PEACE...

From: "David Crockett Williams" <gear2000@lightspeed.net>
Subject: Millennium Gatherings/Celebrations
Date: Sat, 12 Jun 1999

Dear Jean,

In reflecting on your recent post asking for feedback about the idea of
bringing a Spirit of peace into folks' millenium gathering plans I would
like to pass on a suggestion that I got by way of feedback to the Global
Peace Walk's appeal for people all over the world to help echo the prayer
for "Global Peace Now!" as the universal human resolve forming the first
tangible step towards its realization. A firm resolve for peace is the only
thing that can begin to make it manifest, both personally and globally.

Most folks who practice prayers and affirmations are already on the right
track in understanding the power of the human mind.

However, in these times of increasing global social and environmental
emergencies we need a "fast track to global peace" that might be offered by
increasing the intensity of our peace prayers and affirmations to the level
of a coordinated concentrated cry to the heavens, all over the globe
immediately and perhaps especially during all possible events being
organized to commemorate and celebrate the turning of the new millennium.
In this way there can be more than just a hope for peace someday.

What better way to begin the new millennium than to loudly affirm together
"Global Peace Now!".

I received your envelope with the brochures about the Bethlehem Peace Center 2000 and the Peace Globe projects and I will take them with me to Costa Rica late next week to share with Rev. Yamato and the folks there that I meet in conjunction with the World Peace and Prayer Day Ceremony on June 21st conducted by Chief Arvol Looking Horse (19th generation keeper of the original Sacred Pipe of Peace [White Buffalo Calf Pipe]) http://www.worldpeaceday.com/1999 , and the World Summit on Peace and Time at the University for Peace, June 22-27, (their site is http://www.earthascending.com but it has not worked for me this last week or so) to empower the 13moon Calendar Change World Peace Movement's July'99 appeal to the United Nations and to the Vatican for their support of a global calendar change-over [from the presently used, artificially constructed, Vatican imposed ("domination mind-set") Gregorian calendar] to the nature-based galactic cycles of a ("natural harmony mind-set") PeaceTime Calendar. (P2K-Y2K=PTC?)

The plans for Global Peace Walk 2000 have it arriving from its January 15th departure from the San Francisco (Veterans War Memorial Building site of the creation of the UN, on Martin Luther King's birthday) to the Santa Fe, New Mexico area for a ceremony on April 8; staying in that area until arriving about four days walking farther to Taos, NM, for its EarthDay2000 events and ceremony April 22, 2000; en route to the St. Louis, Missouri, "Arch" (the symbolic "center" or bridge between East and West) for a proposed June 21, 2000, Global Peace and Prayer Day Ceremony; on to Washington, DC, for the Columbus Day, October 12th, Ceremony to rededicate the Washington Monument as a Symbol of The Message of Peace, and then on to its end in New York City for the United Nations 55th anniversary events October 24, 2000.




HERE IS AN EXCELLENT PROPOSAL RECEIVED A FEW DAYS AGO...

From: Lessard-Belanger.Manon@hydro.qc.ca
To: globalvisionary@cybernaute.com
Subject: A creative proposal for Earth's sake
Date: Thu, 10 Jun 1999

Hello again,

I figured that because my first message was not written in English, you
would rather not pass it along because it could not be understood by all.

So I decided to translate it and send it again. So, like I said :

(Note de Jean: les francophones qui aimeraient obtenir copie de la version française de cette correspondance pour diffusier cette idée auprès de leurs contacts francophones peuvent contacter directement Manon pour l'obtenir.)

I had a idea, just recently. Why not organizing a painting competition on the
theme: Earth as it would appear as a woman?

Try to imagine Mother Earth with a human body,
* with deserts where skin is exposed,
* with trees, bushes and differents sorts of plants representing hair,
* tear drops would be illustrated with rivers,
* eyes would be lakes,
* etc.

It could be fun, allowing to compare our different perceptions. I imagine
that our own physical appearances, which vary from one race to another,
would influence our portrait of Gaia. And our immediate environment would
serve as a reference background for executing the painting.

Also, it would allow us to focus more intensely our attention, by the means
of a realistic image, and facilitate our future meditations, if we would
first look closely at our portrait of Gaia.

Personally, I found the idea was so good, that I decided to try it as soon
as possible !

Finally, Bravo for your website and for the electronic messages, I have read
it all with great interest and I still take the time to consider the
exchanges that takes place between all of you.

Take care and keep up the good work.

Manon Lessard-Belanger

I THEN ASKED MANON A COUPLE QUESTIONS BEFORE PUBLISHING HER IDEA HERE:

DO YOU INTEND TO COMPILE A LIST OF ALL THE POEPLE WHO WILL TAKE ON YOUR IDEA?

I think I can handle the inscription part, make a list of all the
participants and send a report by email to all, so that we can evaluate the
progression of the idea and how many participants are engaged in the
process.

WOULD YOU ASK PARTICIPANTS TO SEND IN A PHOTO OF THEIR PAINTING OR DRAWING (THROUGH EMAIL PREFERABLY) SO AS TO POST ALL THE RESULTS ON A WEBSITE?

It is an excellent idea. If all participants send the picture of
their artwork by email, we could put it on a website so all of us could see
them. We would display all pictures that goes along with the theme, so we
can change the pictures shown on the site every once in a while. With a powerful tool like the Internet, I believe that our website will rapidly become EXTREMELY popular. But, as for putting those pictures on the net, I would rather have someone more familiar with computers than me, to do the work. We will have to send a message to all that may be interested.

YOU MENTIONED A PAINTING CONTEST... DOES IT IMPLY A JURY AND AWARDS?

No, I never imagined a competition involving prices and selecting
"who's the best". It should suffice to complete the portrait, or drawing,
and to use it to facilitate one's meditation. It would be a reward in
itself. Also, we cannot judge the value of one perception in regard to
another. Gaia should have as many faces and bodies as there are humans to
try and illustrate her appearance. Then, in that case, how could we decide
which succeeded in making the best portrait ?

AMD HERE IS ANOTHER EXCELLENT CONCEPT TO DISSEMINATE...

From: Sh0shanna@aol.com

Subject: Mayor Proclaims Asheville, NC, USA International Peace Zone and Invites Cities other cities of the world to do the same

June 11, 1999
Mayor Proclaims Asheville, N.C., USA an International Peace Zone.

by Lexie Ross

On Tuesday, May 25th, Mayor Leni Sitnick proclaimed Asheville, N.C.,
an International Peace Zone inviting other cities of the world to do the
same.

The proclamation concept was brought to the Mayor by Lexie Ross
representing The Center for World Servers and a coalition of the city's peace
activists calling themselves the Peace Zone Alliance. They have joined
together to begin a peace media campaign.

The Peace Zone Alliance is currently organizing a five minute bell
ringing and prayer for peace and healing for the earth. This is scheduled
to take place five minutes before midnight in the year 2000. They are
challenging other communities across the world to do the same.

The group has already begun to network with international peace
activists through the Internet. They have joined with Robert Schoenfeld, at
the Institute for World Peace Through Prayer in Seattle, Washington, whose
mission it is to have a billion people praying for the healing of the earth
at the New Year.

The Center organizing a peace sign contest urging neighborhoods to
design their own signs saying. . . YOU ARE NOW ENTERING AN INTERNATIONAL
PEACE ZONE, LET ALL WHO ENTER COME IN PEACE. They will be the first to
place signs in four corners of Asheville's city limits.

The idea is to encourage neighborhoods to come together in creative
projects with the goal of building a sense of community - to inspire people
to get to know one another and broadcast peaceful consciousness. There will
be two contests, one for the best essay written by a student, the other for
the best peace sign design.
"We're just beginning to understand the power of declaration and
intention," says spokesperson Lexie Ross. "We have a Declaration of
Independence which is an umbrella of consciousness that helped to make
America a great nation. We have Nuclear Free Zones, but we have never
established Peace Zones. Creating peace is not a passive process. It's time
for all citizens to become peace activists. This Peace Zone Movement is a
spiritual media campaign designed to promote peace - precisely the way our
multi-national companies promote their products."

"I've had the idea of using the media as a consciousness raising tool
to share ideas about peace issues and the interconnectedness of all life.
It was exciting to know there are others who share my dream," says Linda
McLean of Circles of Peace and the Peace Pledge Project.

"Our goal is to make peaceful concepts as familiar as the advertising
slogans that dominate our culture," says Lexie. "Our ceremony at the New Year
is just the beginning of a number of projects."

AND FOR THOSE WHO LIKE DRUMMING...

Date: Mon, 10 May 1999
From: Michael DiMartino <gaia@crocker.com>
Subject: Chance of a Lifetime!

Last August, in a New England town, 5,000 festival-goers swayed rhythmically to the sounds of drums while around the world thousands more joined in. The 5th Annual Drums Around the world Festival, like those before it, honored the traditions of the drum, while celebrating it's power to unify humanity. That weekend, like those before it, the pulse of many world-class drummers were linked spiritually and through cyberspace to drumming circles of miles away. In December 1999, the world-unifying force of the drum will radiate from a far more distant source, the Great Pyranids of Egypt. World drummers and lovers of the drum will gather in Egypt to once again send forth a common vision of world unity, healing and peace.

On that date, the Global Alliance for Intelligent Arts will Present:
Drumming in the New Millennium

Subject: Drumming Around the World/OnePulse- UPDATE

Dear Drummers of the World,

We recently sent you a notice of our intention to bring together drummers
from around the world on September 25 and create OnePulse. The idea was
first conceived to bring Drumming Around the World and World Artists for
Tibet together so that we can maximize the impact we can have on the world
community. While we realized that Drumming around the World is always on the
fourth Sunday in August, we thought it may be a good idea to change the date,
just for this one year, to September 25, so that we can include more people
who may typically be on vacation or out of their normal communities during
the summer months. We applied to Guinness World Records to document the
drumming circle we were planning in New York, and have been accepted by them
for documentation of the biggest drum circle ever.
When we sent out our notice, we received numerous complaints that people did
not want to change from the fourth Sunday of the month. We, therefore, have
decided to keep it true to the yearly date of the fourth Sunday, and we will
combine our efforts to have it be on August 22nd.
We have gotten a permit for Central Park for that day and the Guinness people
are still on board. It just so happens that His Holiness the Dalai Lama will
be speaking in Central Park the Sunday before (August 15). This will give us
a great opportunity to promote our event. Our desire is to have as many
people participate as we possibly can, both around the world and in New York.
Anything you can do to promote this event will be embraced, and celebrated.
We are eagerly waiting to hear from you.
Looking forward to Rocking the World Together.

Subject: Feed the Hungry Everyday for FREE!

Hi EveryOne,

Wouldn't you like to be able to feed the hungry for FREE?
Now you can. The Hunger Site will allow you to feed a hungry
person every day at no cost to yourself. Anyone can do it. Just
visit the website. You can feed one hungry person everyday
just by going to the website and clicking a button. The food
is paid for by corporate sponsors. This is an easy way to
do a really good deed. So everyone can feed a hungry person
today. Please visit today and pass the word ....I did.

http://www.thehungersite.com

From the Hunger Site:

"About 24,000 people die every day from hunger or hunger-related causes...
Three-fourths of the deaths are children under the age of five."

The Hunger Site - Donate Food for Free to Give to Hungry People in the World

"If you like, you can come back to the Hunger Site every day to donate free
food to hungry people. The easiest and fastest way to do this is to bookmark
the Home page of the Hunger Site as one of your favorites. Depending on the
speed of your modem, it might take you only a few seconds each day to make a
free donation."

"What happens when I click on the "Donate Free Food" button? Does the
donation cost me anything?

When you click on the "Donate Free Food" button, this registers with our
computer server. The computer adds your food donation to the day's totals and
sends you the "Thank You For Your Donation" page. This page shows you the
name of the sponsor or sponsors who pay for your donation. There is
absolutely no charge to you for the donation; it is fully paid for by the
sponsors and is completely free for you."


*~*~With Love All Things Are Possible~*~*

I WROTE TO BEVERLEY:

Thanks Beverly. I'll including this in a coming email. But how and why have
corporate sponsors (who are they exactly?) accepted to do this? What do
they get in return -- besides good karma?

Subject: Re: Feed the Hungry for FREE

Hi Jean,

When you go to the site and click to feed someone the name of a corportate
sponsor shows up in a little box with a link to find out more information.
Nothing offensive. You read the name, so do probably thousands of others.
That may be what they get, that, and a tax write off.

Lots of large corporations back charities such as Americares and others.
Americares gets all the food and medicine they give away from large
corporations donating it. Other corporations also support Public TV and
Radio for the publicity it brings them. Then too, they are after all made
up of many human beings - some of whom may actually care:-))

Hopefully this site is genuine. I am keeping my fingers crossed that it is.
If not we should start one! It is a fantastic idea and I wish I had
thought of it or could think of one equally as helpful and beneficial.

In the meantime I plan to make it my default home page so that every time I
open my browser it goes there first. It takes less than a minute to
complete the process:-))

Peace, Love & Harmony,
