Lots of Wonderful Feedbacks to my "Blase or what?" comment + The Expression of Spirit


Following up on all the feedbacks I received today about a simple one-line comment in my last post has been quite time-consuming. This compilation is almost entirely dedicated to some of these feedbacks and the next one will feature many more. I was hoping to have enough space left to make a personal comment but there is none left.

So all the space is yours ;-)

P.S. Mad Cow Disease is now in the news in America!
From: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,96151,00.html
Can It Happen Here? Panic over mad cow has already infected Europe. Now it's our turn

It is, by all accounts, a horrific way to die. First come mood swings and numbness, then hallucinations, uncontrolled body movements and finally a progressive dementia that destroys the mind as thoroughly as Alzheimer's disease--except that this illness can strike at any age.

CLIP - Most of this article centers on reassuring American people that they are not at risk. Denial makes for poor prevention...

And I also strongly recommend to all of you to pay a detailed visit at http://www.nesara.com

The prime goal of the NESARA bill - The National Economic Stabilization and Recovery Act - is to replace current monetary and fiscal policy with systems that benefit all, not just a favored few.

The proposers need at least one US representative to sponsor the bill in the new US Congress and *you* may be instrumental in helping make this happen...

Dear Jean,.

I don't know whether people are indifferent or simply stunned and overwhelmed
by the scope and volume of information that is passed their way. This age of
information is creating a " blank stare" effect.

I have often thought of late that the 60's flower child had more conviction
about standing up for truth then our fellow man kind at the moment. They
were determined to not only get to the bottom of things, but, also, to bring
things to a resolve.

How did Bush slip in? How can the world community allow the rainforest to be
cut down? With all the documentation that has been gathered in England about
Mad Cow Disease, how have we ignored this and allow this terrible plight to
arrive on our shores?

It almost seems like this precious earth is on fire and we are trying to put
out the fire with a water gun.

Jean....I am concerned. This is no time to just think that these terrible
things will just go away. The effects are long term and serious.
I don't know what it will take for the things that we view via television and
computer to become real to people.

I share you concern.

Thank you for these articles. I don't email you because as a former list owner and chat room host, I understand how overloaded one can get. Thank you for the information, it has been passed on to various people, including people who have been offered posts within the current administration. I
think it is wise that everyone be as informed and aware and educated as possible. So, you may be amazed to find that some of this information makes it to people who can actually get work done with it. You are doing more good than perhaps you know.

I found the article on the Executive Order lifting the ban on political assassination and the return of Armitage to a position of power, particularly enlightening on the current state of affairs within our government.

> Getting blasé? Or is it denial? Resignation? Email overload? *YOU* tell me...

Good question, Jean. I was prompted to respond. You know, when you've
received 200 emails about the plight of women in Afghanistan or the
Dalai Lama's Instructions for Life, you tend to delete and go on to
other emails. Recent events do indicate that things are coming to a boil
on this planet. I'm monitoring all your bulletins and keeping track of
developments - but I must admit that I've gone back, temporarily, to
whittling away at the metaphorical stick in my hands, paying attention
to making something for my own pleasure. Taking a break from casting
aspersions (stones, never!) and generally getting worked up about the
apparent tightening of the NWO noose around our necks. Oh yes, for sure
there's some sort of rightwing backlash. How else can so many Americans
be backing Bush regardless of the criminality of his White House
takeover? Look at Israel: a landslide victory for Ariel Sharon means the
Israelis are into pumping iron and flexing their military muscles again.
Even in Malaysia the signs are that the Mahathir regime is getting more
and more desperate, knowing how tenuous their grip on power actually is.
Estrada's obstinacy is an interesting case study.

Right now I'm not prompted to sign a hundred petitions a week or to
march in the streets waving banners and getting maced. I'm content to
continue work on an album of Temuan songs that has been in the pipeline
for 5 years and to publish stuff I've written on a writers' website
called Themestream. In the last 5 months, I have gained a new title:
Datuk (Grandpa) and I must admit it's a shock to the system! I began to
notice that my hair IS thinning on top and, horrors, I've gone thick in
the middle!!! I swore years ago not to succumb to the physical symptoms
of aging but here are the first few unmistakable signs creeping rapidly
up. I've been contemplating ways to deal with this: to harden my resolve
and embark on an exercise regime, take up ch'i qong, change my diet,
whatever... or to accept gracefully that I'm no longer 29 or 34.

Is it so shameful to admit that I have grown a bit weary of struggling?
Don't get me wrong, I definitely am on your side - on the side of
everyone who can no longer accept the status quo which reflects the
iniquities of the last 5,000 years. I'd be enormously delighted to see
Bush's presidency collapse in the next few months - just as I was very
happy to hear that the Filipino people had forced Estrada to leave
Malacanang palace in disgrace. I was equally glad to see Suharto go into
compulsory retirement and I shall be ecstatic the day Mahathir and his
cronies are forced to flee the country! My favourite chapter in "Lord of
the Rings" was the chapter called 'The Scouring of the Shire' in which
the Hobbits succeed in driving out Sharkey's mob with a few fierce
strokes of their righteous swords.

I would celebrate the total collapse of the beef industry, the closure
of Monsanto, the abolition of the Pentagon, and the sudden demise of all
secret agencies and societies. All the lifeforms on this planet need a
respite from destructive anthropocentrism and monotheistic religions!

You know, Jean, I FEEL the whole of humankind is poised for a MASS
AWAKENING. But the bulk of the populace has been so deep asleep it will
take calamities on the scale of the Gujarat earthquake or another threat
of Armageddon or a massive outbreak of Mad Cow disease to shake humans
from their hypnotic trance and their dependency on the incumbent
money-driven power structure. I have friends and relatives who live a
comfortable yuppie lifestyle and who are more easily aroused by the
prospect of acquiring a new set of wheels or the latest Ray-Ban shades
than they are by the intensified suffering that marks this critical
phase of our transition into the Aquarian Age.

Yet if you read the reports of light emissaries like Pati Cota-Robles,
the Divine Plan is unfolding right on schedule! We only have to keep our
emotional bodies in good shape and "all is well, all is good,
everything's going the way it should!" That I can accept, too, without
too much resistance. You see, I'm learning to be comfortable with
paradox and contradiction and uncertainty. Some of us are looking at the
stars and some of us are seeing the swarms of panicking cockroaches on
the garbage heap. I'm seeing both perspectives simultaneously and it's
quite tiring for the eyes. I could sleep for another aeon or two, wake
me when it's over. And yet, I have never felt so fully awake! Can anyone
explain this?

You must be psychic! While reading through your extraordinary newsletters during the
last few months - in which the good news is invariably offset by the bad news [it was
ever thus, in this Universe of duality!] I have been ruefully aware of my increasing
"compassion fatigue". . .

Having worked non-stop for the last 15 years, putting together a project whose aim
is to turn the kids of the world into the greatest civilian taskforce ever assembled -
and having encountered a full spectrum of apathy, incomprehension and even hostility
from a great number of organisations who appear to have a vested interest in things
remaining just as they are, thank you very much, however unjust and inhumane -
I have recently lowered my sights and been working on a more modest, personal
scale, within and around myself!

And so, as news of fresh horrors and abuses continues to pour in via the media and
the Internet, I confess to be dismayed almost to the point of immobility. I know this is
not a particularly good state of affairs - but I hope you will forgive one very battle-weary
soldier for his temporary inertia. You can put it down to the fact that my companions
and I are all soul-weary after years of effort, and are gathering our inner resources for
one glorious final campaign - the one that we sense is going to turn the whole thing
round on this benighted planet, once and for all.

Meanwhile, despite my comparative inactivity these days, my thoughts and best wishes
go out incessantly to the oppressed, to the dispossessed - and to all the valiant souls
who, like your goodself, are doing everything in their power to build an entirely new

In my case, it's e-mail overload. I've been online six years, and I
periodically have to un-sub from dozens of lists somebody else added me to.
If I meditated or sent positive energies to every cause I hear about, I'd
not have time for anything else. If I worried about every food additive or
genetic manipulation I'd starve. If I panicked about every government
interference in my life, I'd soon have a nervous breakdown.

I've decided that while it's a good thing to be informed, in my case I just
have to trust that the Universe is in order and the best I can do is keep my
own little corner of it swept up. I'm luckier than most, since my own
purpose has been given to me and I fully intend to pursue it to the best of
my ability. But I have people like you to thank for showing me the way.
You've probably never heard from me before, but I've read your newsletters

Dear Jean

You wondered why so few reactions came. My reason is indeed e-mail overload.
Besides that, i prepare to organize a meeting with people focussing on new money

Why not develop or share about decentralized money-, power-, food-, health-,
entertainment-, political-, resources- (like water), transportation-, information-,
well you could just include any system. Decentralised small scale practical
implementation combined with worldwide exchange on the best possible solutions will
be an inspiring challenge for the years to come. Let us build a parallel world, no
need to fight the old one. Fighting is not very creative, and it empowers that what
we do not like (to see).

Dear Jean, could you see the Earth Rainbow Network moving (more) in this direction?

Dear Jean,

I was moved to respond to your questions about the lack of response to
the recent presidential contest. I believe there was and still is lots of
intense feeling among Americans on this subject, and I'm watching to see if
the recent joint project by several news organizations conducting a review
of the Florida ballots provides a focal point for some organized political
action. I know lots of Democratic activists are angry over the outcome, but
progressives and others who voted for Nader are concerned about preserving a
voice in future political discourse, despite taking the blame for Gore's
loss. (It's possible that the bulk of the blame will go against Clinton's
behavior, as opposed to Nader's candidacy, or Gore's campaign mistakes.) In
the end, the most productive strategy will be to plan to keep progressive
ideals alive, rather than spending energy launching futile attacks on the
legitimacy of the Bush administration.

Brother Jean,

Brilliant work in this last compilation! You surely must be making at least
a large dent in the public hypnosis, and this is truly a huge spiritual
service you are doing. As usual, I posted your last update on UCS, as well
as the WMS Discussion Board, prefaced with the following words;

Dear UCS,

I send this latest update from Jean Hudon, which expresses many timely
points regarding the issues of our age. More important to me than the
specifics however, (such as the whole BSE scandal) is the fact that the
trends mentioned herein, are those which are now prevalent in every area of
society. By "trends" I mean the same patterns of corruption, media
cover-up, public mind-set manipulation, and the whole works. And what is
the point of such subjects being brought up on a spiritual forum such as
this?...you may ask. The relevance is that this materialistic society to
which every person is expected to owe their allegiance and entire life
energy, is not worthy of such devotion. What is worthy of our devotion as
spiritual practitioners, is Nature and the way of natural law, which will
never fail us. REALITY is about coming from pure intention, and expecting
those around us to do the same as a matter of social responsibility, rather
than the scandalous, politically "correct" ideas of the modern age. The
modern age is not correct or natural; it is insane, and out of control in
every way. So is willing participation in it. For this reason, I advocate
the complete rejection of modern values and lifestyle, in favor of the
natural, sane alternatives....


I'll soon forward another UCS post to you which went up today, which I
imagine you'll find interesting.

Love and Clarity to you,

My thoughts exactly above.

And yes this other post entitled "The Expression of Spirit" is indeed extremely stimulating.

I'm curious (as I also succintly expressed tonight in the last compilation "Uncovering the Truth 3) about the apparent lack of response from the nearly 1800 people on the ERN list - no feedback, no comment as if all the latest material has been falling on deaf ears. Or is it a profond sense of resignation? Even denial? Or worst, despair!

Or perhaps it is simply that people are bemused and dazzled by the continous barrage of attention-consuming and emotion-demanding information I put them through - if they can find time to read some or any of it of course. Probably it is all of the above and more.

Anyway, to jolt them out of their seeming indifference, I intend to run your comment above and your other post entitled "The Expression of Spirit" in a forthcoming compilation and we will see...

Keep up your amazing clarity-making and awakening work brother


LAST MINUTE NOTE: Obviously, as I'm sending this compilation, I must say that my wish for reactions has been more than answered and more feedbacks keep coming in. I've been able to manage it all so far and I'm very happy with the quality and diversity of comments generated ;-)

Date: Mon, 5 Feb 2001

It is great to read such lucid posts, Diana. The points you bring forward, are certainly very worthy of further discussion and practical action. It always amazes me how such points can be mentioned in detail, and yet they receive only minimal attention from the general forum. It is clear that "the system" as it currently stands, cannot last much longer, nor can a humanity which supports it. The values of society are simply DEAD WRONG in every area of social endeavor. Humanity imagines:

1) That nature exists to serve human whims.

2) that education is for the conditioning of young minds to serve the corporate work place, rather than for the sake of enlightenment and self-evolution.

3) That humanity can break any natural law it wants to, for as long as it pleases, and not suffer grave consequences for doing so. We see examples of this in genetic engineering, environmental pollution, exhaustion of natural resources, disregard of our own body's systems, the use of deadly pesticides and herbicides, the growing and feeding of animals and crops under the most unnatural of conditions, etc.

4) The making of government policies of no value to anyone except a select few, under the guise of "democrasy". We find absolute corruption, contradiction and hypocrasy at every level of modern institutions. Everything in this society is based upon money considerations as a top priority. This of course boils down to one simple thing; The insane GREED of a dying race, trying to stave off its fear of what it has become, and its imminent death, with a security blanket of material things. Such a mind set exists to last yet another decade, year, month, day, or even just one more hour, before the inevitable collapse of this bogus paradigm.

5) Continuous wars, political battles and false speeches, genocide, germ and chemical poisoning of populations, and daily scandals.

6) The near total control of the media, which tells the corporate lies that are designed for just two purposes; a) to maintain "consumer confidence", (and therefore blind spending, based on arificially stimulated desires) b) to ensure that a general public uprising does not occur, which would otherwise insist that the practices and policies of the world be changed for the better.

Yet, despite all this, the average person is STILL AT THIS VERY MOMENT in denial that there is even anything wrong with modern society and its values. Incredible! (and of course, quite insane). The media and "education" really have us hypnotized!

My further comments are within your text below...

Diane writes;

Dear Ed:

RE: your response to Amy. You are absolutely right. When we attempt to operate from within the system to change it, we cannot help but be conformed somewhat to the mold prescribed by it. We then, however unnoticed by us, in very subtle and insidious ways begin to think and behave according to those limits. The expansion of one's consciousness becomes limited and our spiritual growth becomes stunned, no matter how enlightened we perceive ourselves to be--or how impervious we think we are to the effects of that association. Perhaps we could expect to be immune to the system's influence were we evolved to the point that we can walk on water or pass through walls.


Absolutely true... one cannot change corruption through corrupted means, and expect to rescue a dying civilizaion. We're choking in our own filth and decay even now, at the hands of a government that is no longer sovereign. The governments are now owned by the corporations, who become more bold in their attempts to totally control the public in any way possible, with each day that passes. They know their empire is fading away. In their insanity, they will keep profits high, even if it means buying puppet presidents like George W. They are creating a completely illusory media and psuedo-world for the public mind to "consume". Regardless of these facts however, there are many who still naively assume that all we need to do is "get out the vote" or "write your local congressman". Others still say, "don't even look at world events, that's just feeding the negativity" and that all we need is "unconditional love", (whatever that means, on a practical basis). Clearly, nothing is going to change by virtue of the current status quo. REAL change is about choosing a completely different lifestyle and view of REALITY than what is currently accepted.


Only the most enlightened and truly adept among us dare step into that miasma of the cult of materialism without taking the chance of becoming tainted by its putrid stench of stagnancy. From this wisdom comes the saying of Jesus that those who believe will take up serpents and can drink poison without fear of harm. For the adept among us, this saying would apply on both the denser levels (i.e.material, flesh) and on the higher vibrational levels (spiritual, invisible). And even then, as you no doubt have observed, those few truly adept Christed ones only venture into the fringes of that strange land of false constructs for certain tasks and interventions to be performed (e.g., Jesus, Buddha, and many others of lesser fame)--for some spirit led purpose or goal.


The psychic and material reality of our current civilization is abysmal. And you're right, it would take a high Master such as a Christ or a Buddha to effectively change it, or even brave it unscathed. The world has a great deal of karma to deal with. There is a certain school of thought which says free will should not be tampered with anyway, and that if it is the will of the human race to finally NOT SEE THE TRUTH, or to change their materialistic ways for the better, then so be it. Under this view, it may well be the best thing for the planet, that the cancer of humanity be killed off to make room for life forms which are not nearly as destructive. Perhaps this is what needs to happen to prove a point to a very hard headed and self indulgent humanity...that the spiritual designs of nature are what should be served by humanity, not the other way around. It may just take the complete collapse of the world economies, the fall of governments, the spread of disease, famine, war and hardship of every conceivable kind, to finally wake up the average FAT AMERICAN (and Western paradigm as a whole).


Even those of us on this forum are but spiritual babes for the most part. We have not had the spiritual knowledge or guts to venture out into the unknown territory that exists outside the "system." Therefore we rationalize that it must be done from within the system, using its venues and resources. But didn't Jesus say (and others as well in different terms) that one cannot serve both God and mammon--also he asked "what communion has righteousness with Belial?" Jesus never spoke from a religious viewpoint, but from the viewpoint of the adept who was totally conscious of the ONEness of all things and of his own oneness with his source. The previous statement was not born of doctrine, but of knowledge of truth. Another thing that Jesus said is that if our right eye offends us, we should cut it out. By this I think he meant that we should cut out of our lives anything that inhibits our growth in Truth and knowledge of the Absolute Eternal. Hmmmm . . .


Yes, in other words, we need to cut out the superficiality and destruction of materialistic values, in favor of natural and spiritual laws. It means that we don't buy the new house, fancy car, expensive suit or dress or contribute to the local cancer-producing factory and its products, in our daily lives. It means we must live simply and naturally, observing what our own bodies, and the living creatures of the good Earth are telling us. It means that we must stop telling lies for the sake of comfort, and then having the gall to call that "spiritual" just because it placates someones' emotional distress. The distress people are feeling around the world right now, is there for a reason. The distress that is easily perceived by each of us every day contains a message. This message is very simply, "follow natural law or die". I think most people would still, even now, rather die than change a thing. They would rather gossip and focus on the trivial than speak of joint action. So be it.


An aside to the group at large: There are some of this in this community who seem to think that others of us advocate the overthrow of government. Since I have been part of this community I have NEVER seen such a statement by anyone. I HAVE read that some would encourage us to forsake the false constructs of religion and government and even so-called social activism in order to promote the proliferation of truth. Poor Matthew, who is often misunderstood, I think has this rep among some in the community-- totally undeserved!! And I have never seen that any one of us has ever advocated changing the world by violent means. Those of us who promote anarchy of sorts promote that anarchy that is called "peace". It is a separation of oneself out from the influences of the world system in order to grow in spirit. Then to take what one has learned and share it with those who are lead to listen and utilize it. But we make little progress when we do little but spout jargon and spiritual catch phrases. To those outside our community this seems shallow and superfluous--and hypocrital also when we do not WALK what we TALK. When little or no power is manifested in our lives--or when they see us living by the world's ways, what example is that?


My question is, "ok, so what if someone DID advocate the overthrow of the existing government"? So what? Have Americans forgotten how their own country was started? And I definitely "encourage us to forsake the false constructs of religion and government and even so-called social activism in order to promote the proliferation of truth". Yes, absolutely so.


We are not really making progress when we go to this therapist and that therapist seeking magic herbal potions and energy work and are always having someone work on us to improve us from without. One's best guru is his inner self. Aren't we living by the world's ways when we have a "business" of metaphysics and there are alternative paraphernalia and book shops sprouting up everywhere and we spend scads of money on books and therapies and follow first this guru and that guru. Again we are hooked. The world's way is to distract us from our own inner journey and convince us that we are in need of help from others, that we are helpless to reach in and dig out our own inner garbage on our own --and that we should pay somehow for that service. Early on in my metaphysical studies, my son said something to me that stuck like glue--something that is a simple truth that I have not been able to toss off with any rationalization. He said simply that he didn't believe that truth could be bought and that it was not right for one to disseminate truth for a fee. Of course, when we need help from one another, we should seek it -- and it should be freely offered. At the same time, I believe there comes a time that reading and study and therapies and crystals and energy work and mind treatments become either distractions from the inner journey or things that enable us to indulge in thoughts that are self-defeating in our search for truth. Such thoughts, thoughts that keep us looking outward, are the bane of the spirit.

Love and peace and clarity to all,

Sunny One Diana


Diana, you really clarified here a major flaw in modern thinking. We do indeed, as a culture, give all our power to outside forces. Our "experts" and institutions are given credence under the assumption that they know what is good for us, better than we do . What they know is how to keep things as they are...in decay. What we know as individuals, is that all the personal power we need is centered within. But to find it and make use of it, requires a consistent seriousness of life view, that does not assume the truth is whatever you want to make up, and that life is just a game to be played , "to get what you can while you can". This is not the purpose of life. Life is NOT A GAME, and it has rules which exists whether humanity likes that fact or not.

Life exists to extend spiritual purposes and designs. This is the motive behind biological evolution. We can either apply ourselves individually and en masse to that evolutionary purpose, or we can choose to destroy ourselves, in self-induced foolishness. That's our choice as individuals. If we do not choose the right path as already determined by nature, then we get exactly what we deserve...death and suffering on ever increasing scales, until not one human is left to walk the face of the Earth.
