Light Series #7: It Is The Time To Be In Joy
The title of this compilation - derived from Don Ferrari's most excellent article below - may seem in complete contradiction with the grim picture depicted is so much of the material featured in my other compilations these days, yet rejoicing and celebrating the emerging grace of a global, spiritual conscious field of loving harmony is the only sensible option for a soul dedicated to serving the Higher purpose of his/her incarnation. Dark deeds and those who accomplish them thrive best in the penumbra of unexposed concealment and by exposing as much of them as possible, we can enable the healing process of these suffering - and yes beloved! - souls to be catalyzed to a higher order of purification and spiritual upliftment. However, this quick healing process can be achieved only if those of the Light among us consent in holding those deeds and the initiators/makers of those deeds in the purifying light of Love and compassion within the secret alcove of their heart where the alchemical transformation of dirt into gold through the sacred omniversal vibration of God/Oneness in All That Is - the symbolic holy philosopher stone - is being done at this very moment, now.
Just as when the illusion of separation is dispelled during the awakening process, so we can behold the unfathomable Reality that We Are All One with the Almighty Universal One, those who have turned away from the Light and are hold spellbound into a fear-filled miserable existence of their own mayic making, are also part of us, our spiritual brethren, one with the Universe. They just don't remember it yet. And it is as much our common responsibility to help them achieve, in loving service and dedicated compassion, the quantum shift into higher consciousness so many of us are experiencing these days, as it is their responsibility to listen within themselves to the growing chorus of heavenly voices calling them up from within towards the lightning liberation from fear and darkness.
So yes let us all rejoice and celebrate our emerging reunification and, in so doing, radiate the healing/appealing/enabling Force of Love we are meant to express from the very moment we are born into earthly existence until the last breath of our transition back into nirvanic bliss and activity.
May we all give thanks for the grace of living in such a momentous time of the Life continuum.
Now and forever...

THE MANY FACES OF LOVE - A Journey
by Don Ferrari
Sitting in the higher densities just above the earth plane, awaiting the time to return to body. There were many choices, for life on earth, the plane of emotional experience, is just one of a multitude of learning experiences we have available.
We sit perhaps a little closer to love at this time than after we make the dissension into form, a little higher vibrational level, yet all is love. Whether we choose to go to the school of higher learning on Venus, or the vibrational healing school on Alcyone, we are always love seeking experience. Thus we have chosen earth and the densest of all the vibrational levels as our next experience.
We find ourselves being birthed, yet we are still pure love existing in the oneness. All that we see in front of us is us also. We have no belief system, for this would divide that which is. We smile and chant and hear the response it brings forth. We see the Angels and Fairies around us and point to them and laugh as others watch. We are pure LOVE, in body, on earth.
Soon we find that the oneness has names. A color is held to sight and blue comes from the lips of mother, and as we reach into the oneness of colors and pull forth that which is blue we have stepped into separation.
Now we sit and look - as children, or teenager, or adult, and all that we see has come from our learning to separate the oneness. All according to the structuring and education of our parents, our peers, our media, our cultural and planetary grid.
We now have (our own?) personal belief system which indeed creates what we call reality. We are locked within the confines of these beliefs unless we choose, recognizing that it is an illusion, to break free and return to oneness once again. We have accepted and chosen to eliminate all information (light) that does not fit in with our chosen beliefs. We have imprisoned ourselves in the dream, but that is why we came. To see if we could jump into the pool of illusion and find our way home, bringing all with us into the LOVE.
As we look outward, we see that six billion others have different beliefs and indeed a different reality. They are grouped around similarities for safety. One of these groups feels compelled to gain control of all the others and in turn rule. Due to a majority of people having given their power away to reap the good life, this group has placed themselves in key areas of influence and has been expanding their plan unchecked for many decades. An unforeseen circumstance came about that made them rapidly increase the timing of their agenda. This was the increase in light and love on this planet that began in the sixties and has been increasing exponentially ever since. There was danger for them. Too many people were waking up. The earth could wait no longer and began her ascension. Thus they came out into the open, knowing it was their last chance. These are the events we have witnessed recently, all smoke screens to cover other actions and put the people in fear, for only in fear can you be controlled.
According to where your focus is, you are either in fear, or love. In LOVE, you may feel completely removed from these dramas. Do not judge yourself for this feeling you are lacking compassion. It is not your movie.
We chose to come here to be part of this wondrous transition into an age of LOVE and peace. We knew what would transpire, we just forgot. Now, we are remembering, and all that holds us to the old energies will be placed in front of us for us to view and experience. We must move our viewpoint from the earthly to the soul level. All events that are happening are as they should be. All is perfect and evolving, all is being balanced, it is just our perspective that labels. As we rise to soul-view, at one with ourselves and all-that-is, much will come to hold us. This is our work. To create balance within - no-where else - WITHIN OURSELVES, and all will be well. When fear arises, walk into it, feel it, find its source, the judgment that created it, and balance it. There are no good guys and bad guys, all is one, and it is totally determined by your beliefs and viewpoint. You can change nothing but yourself. Go to your inner child and say, I love you. All is well, and embrace this child into your heart. All that comes, greet it with love and blessings, welcome it and thank it for the opportunity for you to grow and move into the next awareness. There is only NOW, and in this NOW, there is also depth, multidimensionality. This means that you choose what timeline you wish to be on; one of fear or one of joy. All choices are played out by your parallel lives, but you choose which reality is yours in each moment.
There have been tests done recently that showed the effect of emotion on DNA. When the person felt love and joy, the DNA expanded and relaxed. When the person was fearful, the DNA tightened and shut down some of its codes. In a test done with AIDS victims, when love and appreciation was expressed, the immune system was enhanced 300,000 times from up to 50 miles away. The life we are living is one chosen by our feelings and broadcast into the essence of LOVE and ONENESS, becoming reality. We are changing each moment. The light from the sun in changing, and that light (information) is what programs our DNA. We are not who we think we are, but then again, we are.
So there. It is up to each of us to choose. There are no wrong choices, only that we choose, otherwise there are those that have already chosen for us, and we may not like their movie.
All is possible now. We have the ability to light and heat our homes and travel in an instant wherever we choose. Whatever you can imagine is possible. Biological warfare? - it will pass through us like a bird in the sky as we smile and fly. We will not exist in the dimension of dis-ease.
If you but ask, all karma will be dissolved, all judgments and contracts will be released. If you but ask. Ask and you shall receive a brother said, and how many still hesitate.
It is the time to be in joy, the moment we have all come for. Sing, dance, eat, love each other, laugh and celebrate and let the drama of others play its own tune to an empty theater.
I Love you, for I am you and no matter how different your expression, we are still one, and someday soon we will all know it.
BE AT PEACE.

We also had the same picture in our meditation retreat. I don't remember who was first to say it, but I saw it clearly: first our group holding hands and circling around the globe and then later many groups and people and the Mother Gaia was wrapped in a wonderful light, there was pink light of infinite love, pale blue healing energy, golden glorious light of victory and silver shade of the wisdom coming through... it was magic. Since we are ahead in time and finished the last link up at 11:11pm with New York, each time, the energy increased.
And we also have received several messages from Mother Earth, the Priesthood of Shamballa, Angels and ascended Masters. It was absolutely magic and a great shift has happened!
It is such a blessing that we have connections like the one with Matthew. The help they can provide from this level behind the veil is very precious and I hope that many people awaken to their abilities to contact the beings not embodied in a physical human body and receive their assistance, since they are very eager and willing to help us to see more clear. But also we have to learn to discriminate from which "energy level" the messages are coming, since there is a lot of channelling around in the moment that I don't "feel" from a high and useful spiritual level - but more confusing and misleading.
If you are interested, I can send you some of the channelling we received as soon as they are written.

A few years ago I went into meditation with the intention of finding out about evil. Why it is here etc.,
SO I asked " What is evil" and after going out to what seemed a very very faraway place the message that I came back with was: "Evil is Good in potentiality." I understood this with an inner knowledge or sense and it has helped me tremendously in my life. At this really potent and volatile time I offer it to our group with love.

Thank you for all that you do--especially the Light Series.
Congrats to us! The Taliban are on the run and probably saving hundreds or thousands of lives because of it (or else our troops would probably be in there bombing them, at a location adjacent to the cities, over holy week, with more homelessness and devastation and violence). I think this withdrawal is our result,--- all the good thoughts of love, and peace all have been sending sometimes daily or hourly for peace and end to war. Music is playing in the streets in Kabul and elsewhere now I am sure. Didn't Taliban first begin to pull out of Kabul just after the 11:11 peace prayer begin? I'm not sure of the exact timing but just thought of it last night in meditation. Somebody changed their mind to leave, rather than stay and fight and I think we should take credit. All is truly well and it is fun to have it start to become manifest. That is not arrogance on our part; that is the truth of who we are.
Continued prayer will help complete the mission and end the war much faster than most dream possible. Again, we must each acknowledge this as our result (all the prayers and good thoughts and vibrations sent out to the ethers to go where most needed) as this is true meaning and power of prayer. Let our high positive vibrations (with joy embedded) continue to beam out everywhere to completely overcome all the lower, dark vibrations of fear.

CLIP - The following is (in part) the first of 9 items compiled in Larrys newsletter
Subject: Love Thine Enemies
This is the answer my friend gave to his American 12 years old daughter (in reference to the WTC Sept 11 attack:
She ... asked me ... "Why did they have to do this?" I found myself saying, "There is no 'they'. We are all one race. The human race." I have been reminded by my inner that all is within. I have within me the cell of the pilot who flew into the tower, the cell of the ones in the towers, the cell of the families who feel as victims, the cell of the ones who want war and revenge and justice, the cell of all the peacemakers and light workers. I can not separate myself and say that there is an us and them. For if I did, I would promote separation and not unity. But nonetheless, it is a tough pill to swallow again that I am such a whole being with all these facets. It is time to take the next level of responsibility for my and our creation. There is also a part of me that recalls that the 'war' has been won in the heavens and that it is only a matter of time 'til the inevitable happens and peace reigns.
Love Thine Enemies
To Those Who Have, Would, and Will Attack Me:
- for shaking me out of my complacency
- for mobilizing my will to introspect
- for mobilizing my will to participate in life, rather than merely allowing life to live me
- for reminding me that I am alive
- for holding a mirror up to my face
- for reminding me of what is most important in life
- for inspiring me to seek love in moments of crisis
- for bringing people together in ways not otherwise accessible
- for inspiring courage, co-operation, uncommon feeling and a renewed sense of community
- for alerting me to the fact that all things and people around me can be destroyed or die, but that there is something within each of us that is immortal, that can never be tarnished, that can never fade, never die, that is always connected to all others and all things
- for illuminating the more extreme emotions that still lie within me, otherwise denied and hidden, that still await my attention, resolution, healing and love
- for inspiring me to actively share my love with those around me
- for causing me to question my beliefs, my values, my biases, my one-eyed stances, my judgments and my blame
- for causing me to seek a bigger picture, a picture that makes sense of the perceived chaos and disorder around me
- for contributing to my evolution of consciousness
- for challenging me to love my enemies
- for helping see that my enemies are but mirror reflections of my own inner devils
- for helping me to love my own inner devils
- for reminding me that each one of us, individually, is a holographic mirror of the whole of Humanity, complete with peace and war, violence and pacifism, love and hatred, likes and dislikes, views and counter-views, angels and devils
- for again bringing the question into the forefront of my consciousness: where is God in all this? (And for bringing me, through my introspection, to again ask myself, where is God not?)
- for strengthening my resolve, my vision, my purpose of sharing my God-given gifts with others in whatever way I can
- for reminding me that I, like all others, indeed have a purpose in life, for myself and for others
- for strengthening my certainty that nothing happens or can happen that does not Serve a higher purpose, that nothing happens or can happen that is not ultimately a Service and an act of Love
To my enemies:
In the ensuing days, weeks, months, years,
in whatever way I respond or others respond to your challenges,
collectively or individually,
whether from hatred and fear or from love and certainty,
whether violent or peaceful,
whether destructive or constructive,
I Wish for you the same awakening to love that you have given me,
for I know in my Heart, with utter certainty,
that all things are a Service of Love,
that all things are part of a larger Plan,
that each of us is the same in one respect:
we are all here to learn how to Love.
This makes us all brothers and sisters...
Oh Lord, Make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is Hatred, let me bring Love
Where there is Injury - Pardon;
Where there is Doubt - Faith;
Where there is Despair - Hope;
Where there is Darkness - Light;
And where there is Sadness - Joy.

Just a Note to the Soul
By Dannion Brinkley
Posted October 23, 2001
In light of all the changes we have experienced in our world since the happenings of September 11th, I feel strongly that we must stop... and affirm certain truths. In affirming these truths, we consciously begin the stabilization of the energy of the world within us, thereby stabilizing the energetic spheres in the world around us.
We are great, powerful and mighty spiritual beings of light living in a physical world with dignity, direction, and purpose.
We choose to come here as a 'force of one' in order to make changes for the betterment of humanity, knowing that we are capable of making a real difference. Each of us has designed our life with as many obstacles and challenges as we could create along with a variety of options and possibilities to overcome those same challenges. Remember this my friends, we can never become a great sea captain if you only sail calm waters. Be proud that most of us have chosen to sail our ships in the North Atlantic in winter or during typhoon season in the South China Seas!
We were chosen to come here. What this means is that a great, divine, and infinitely loving Force trusts and believes we will achieve the goal we were sent to accomplish. We will do this in the namesake of what we personally hold Divine. I firmly believe that very few of us ever fail this part of the life mission.
We all possess an abundance of gifts and talents. One vital aspect of living this life is to discover and develop the wisest use these talents in order to produce the greatest possible potential for good.
We chose to be alive at this time, at this place and at this point in history. Never before have we had such a glorious opportunity to display our individual power and presence. Think of this, when someone gives us a gift it is called a present. The present we have been given today is the NOW. This is the exact moment to truly know that we can make the difference.
There is a world that we existed in before we came into this one. It was beautiful. It was safe. It was all embracing. The foundation of that world is that we are loved, cherished, and considered precious.
There is a world that exists after this one. In fact, it is the same world we left to come here. What we leave in this world, is the uniqueness of our divine mark. And what we take with us into the next world is the understanding of how and why this divine mark was our unique destiny. Friends, if we are able to keep these simple truths in proper perspective, what we will discover is that life is truly an adventure. Sometimes our adventure is filled with love, sometimes hardship. Sometimes we are either seeking or giving forgiveness. But the adventure is always about growing and unfolding.
In closing, I ask that you never lose faith in your own divinity. And please be conscious of this secret: the goal of life is to learn compassion. Webster's Unabridged Dictionary defines compassion in the following way: "a feeling of deep sympathy and sorrow for another who is stricken by misfortune, accompanied by a strong desire to alleviate the suffering." Now, with this in mind, look around you everyone and you will see that your purpose is easily definable. Simply put compassion in action into your everyday life. And I would like to plant this seed from, Jewels for the Soul, by Kathryn M. Peters:
The Power of Peace
When I sustain only thoughts of love, I open myself to the experience of peace beyond measure. My day may be decorated in an eclectic showcase of people and circumstances that either help to focus or distract me. Yet, my daily mission is to bring the peace and compassion of Spirit into every situation I encounter.
This Week's Affirmation
"Connecting my mind with the compassion of Divine Mind guarantees me the power of peace."

Since you mentioned the need for a spiritual revolution, I wanted to share a book with you. It's called "For The Sake of Peace", written by lay Buddhist leader Dr. Daisaku Ikeda.
Some women friends and I get together every couple of weeks and study this book together, chapter by chapter. It's so good and I highly recommend it.
It's available through Middleway Press, ISBN number 0-9674697-2-4.
I hope you'll have time to check into it!
Thanks again for the work you're doing!
SUSAN ALSO SENT THIS
The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers; wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less. We buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense;more knowledge, but less judgment; more experts, yet more problems; more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom and hate too often. We've learned how to make a living, but not a life. We've added years to life, not life to years. We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space, but not inner space. We've done larger things, but not better things. We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.
These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes, but more divorce; fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer - to quiet - to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete.
Remember, spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, "I love you" to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
To all my friends in my life, thanks for being there!

Subject: Progressive Media Project
I wished to share this progressive project with you all as I felt it had much merit and heart.
Have you asked yourself whether today's media controls what we see, hear and read? Do corporate voices take the lead in presenting the pictures they want us to see? Does the media coverage affect our electoral process by focusing on some candidates and not others?
We are writing to you today to let you know we can all work to evolve from a media that does not speak for the people to one where we all participate and have a voice. We are a grass roots community cooperative that has created the New Mexico Independent Media Center, (NM IMC). Our group serves as an umbrella to help independent journalists radically democratize and take back our media. Our goal is to establish collaborations that support community independent radio, television, and Internet communication. We are also developing an independent newspaper that will start in New Mexico and eventually become national.
The World Voices independent newspaper is necessary because many people feel that newspapers are not providing meaningful or truthful coverage. We have also found that computers and email communications, that bring a variety of information to many people, are not available to all communities. In speaking with youth we often hear the question, Why is it we are not getting all the information on the things that affect our lives? These comments relate directly to the media moguls who provide us with biased information, and believe that we human beings, lacking any essence beyond self-seeking, will gladly accept their views and turn over our fate to the market, and the global corporate thinking presented to us.
Our idea for the newspaper is to offer people accurate, well-researched, local, national and global information that does not tell them what to think. Instead, it promotes human values by opening windows of understanding and encourages participation so that people can see what they can do, rather than what they cannot do. The present media focus is largely about problems, violence and promotion of corporate ideas. This overwhelms people and we become passive and discouraged. Thomas Jefferson said, If he had to choose between elective government and a free press, he would choose a free press". The news we hear today give us a few "expert" views. Our independent newspaper idea is to inform, inspire, entertain and give people examples of what we can do together.
Humanity is at a crossroads, we can decide to fight the system that exists or we can work towards a transformation. Many of us have had dreams that media can be changed, returned to ethical reporting, but what we have found is that it is an up hill struggle and that there are many obstacles in place which prevent change. A question we could ask ourselves is why has the federal Communication Commission and the Justice Department or any of the agencies that regulate information monopolies not acted to stop the consolidation of media ownership? People like Rupert Murdoch control The New York Post, The Weekly Standard, Mushroom Records, Fox Network and 15 TV stations and much more. The same is true for GE Receptor and the Viacom Receptor corporate conglomerates.
We are sending further information that explains the details of the paper for your review. What we are asking is that you talk to individuals and organizations in your community about these ideas. Your support is needed our first issue will be coming out in the 3rd week of November, 2001.
