Subject: Miscellaneous feedbacks and topics
I'm going to send you this other series of miscellaneous feedbacks and topics before
delving into the Y2K mess/opportunity for change. Sorry to have you all waiting -
at least there are three Y2K-related items below.
Earth Rainbow Network Coordinator
But first, here is some news from Catherine Margerin, from San Francisco, instigator
of the coming Milenio conference in Costa Rica. Catherine took also part briefly
to our first ERN meeting in Santa Barbara in December 1997.
The MILENIO TEAMS encourage "a personal, people to people multi-disciplinary approach
to PEACEBUILDING, and they are active in the U.S.A., SOUTH AFRICA, HONDURAS, PAKISTAN,
and THE CONGO.
A week-long conference will be in Costa Rica in June 2000. If you are interested in
the Milenio Team approach to peace, visit http://www.milenio.org

Thanks for your sharing and continuing updates for the
August 11 event. I truly think it helps people have a sense
of continuation for this event, which will affect us for years...
And I also hope that you will consider sending out a reminder
about our WorldWide Meditation: Emergence of the World
Soul for September 18, as the time approaches. Since it is
to focus the energies which began downloading on August 11,
it seems a great opportunity for people to hear it from
you...as one more continuation of this miraculous event and time
that we are in.
Thanks again for the work that you do.

Subject: Re: about the 11:11 meditation and the Turkey earthquake
Jean, I also had an experience with the afternoon meditation I would like to share
with you. At the time I didn't know the meaning of it and several group members made
some speculation about it. When I saw the newspaper frontpage about the earthquake
I knew what it was.
At some point of my meditation experience I saw the world as if from space and a
radar screen was transposed over it with a line sweeping around it in a clockwise
direction. Over the area (I thought at the time) of Yugoslavia, There was a blip.
When I asked what that was, the answer I got was "cleansing" . When I saw the paper
I knew it was about the earthquake. The way I interpret the "cleansing" message is that when,
on a personal level a dark part of self is brought to light I have experienced that
as a cleansing. As a collective the same happens.
Our group is now meeting every Sunday at noon for more global meditaions. We start
with ourselves and expand gradually outwards. Thanks for sharing about your personal
Love and Lightness, Jeni.

Subject: Re: August 28 is Aspartame Awareness Day worldwide
I used to be a Diet Coke addict until I read your first release last spring
about the dangers of aspartame. Then I gave it up -- and discovered flavored
waters, which are now my liquid addiction!
The first -- and most striking -- effect I noticed was that my eyesight
returned almost to the sharpness it was when I was in my twenties! The
second thing I noticed was weight loss, and the third was fewer muscular
aches and pains.
Then I drank Slim-Fast for about four days and my eyesight deteriorated again
-- so sharply it was amazing! I then read the label: Slim-Fast contains
aspartame! Well, you'd better believe I stopped that immediately. Then my
eyesight improved again.
This was enough for me. Maybe this story will encourage others to drop
aspartame from their diets.

Subject: Some Flavored Waters contain Aspartame
PLEASE be careful of Flavored Waters (those with Aspartame). My sister in
law was feeling quite ill after being off Diet Coke for some time..thinking
she should be feeling Better...not so ill. She Feels Aspartame killed her 17
yr old sister who was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at age 16. The girl
drank 1 whole pitcher of Aspartame Iced Tea daily. Their diabetic mom...like
my diabetic mom...died before they could reach retirement age. Equal, Diet
Coke, Diet Tea....all Poisons....BUT my sister in law was shocked when I
asked her Just WHAT she was taking in since she had given up Diet Coke (my
thinking she was taking in some other source of Aspartame..Phenylalanine,
Aspartic Acid, etc)...BUT she said NO, I'M ONLY DRINKING FLAVORED WATERS. I
asked her to read the ingredients out to me...since I know some brands DO NOT
have Aspartame in them. However; the brand she was buying...DOES contain
Aspartame. She stopped the Aspartame Flavored Waters..and she Immediately
felt better...BUT was furious about all the trips to the Doctor...and Rx's
gotten for her GI Symptoms, Body Aches, and Headaches Since She was On the
Flavored Aspartame Waters. She had undergone series of tests to diagnose
Ulcers, etc...and was taking treatments for such. SHE IS Quite Well now..that
she is OFF the Aspartame Flavored Waters....and READS all labels.
Earth Changes TV/Breaking News - Y2K, Gov. Pleads People Not To Withdraw Money

The Gov't and Banks Plead For Consumers Not To Withdraw Money..08/26/99
by Mitch Battros (ECTV)
The article below has sent chills down my entire body. Folks I believe
this very statement gives us the heads up of what is to come. I had
always stated, "even if the Y2K issues were not as bad as expected, the
perception of what could happen would be enough to cause a panic. The
area to watch most closely is A Run On The Banks".
It appears our government is now starting to solicit support from
"religious leaders" to help calm people down. I believe this to be short
sighted, and may very well back fire.
This is the most disturbing news report I have seen to date. I am
alarmed due to the early release of this article. I would have expected
these types of statements to come in November.

THIS EXCELLENT PERSPECTIVE BELOW ON THE POWER OF LIGHT AND LOVE OVER THE POWER OF
FEAR IN RELATION TO THE COMING Y2K UPHEAVALS WAS FORWARDED TO ME RECENTLY.
IT IS IN LINE WITH A PREVIOUS POST TO THIS LIST ON THIS SUBJECT POSTED AT http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000/AboutFear.htm
AND AT http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000/FeedbkFearGE.htm
"To Fear or Not to Fear"
Just what is it about fear that attracts us so? Is it the rush of adrenaline it creates?
Is it the challenge of rising above it? Or is it some sort of masochistic streak
that runs through our genes? I don't think anyone knows the reason for certain, but
evidence of the attraction itself is overwhelming. From the popularity of roller coasters
and thrill rides to the enormous box office receipts of terror and horror films,
our near-addiction to fear is demonstrated all around us.
As the turn of the century and the new millennium approach, our worst fears are being
paraded before us by society's fear mongers like the previews for so many horror
movies, inviting us to buy a ticket, come on in and get scared out of our wits. These
tempting scenarios are coming at us from every direction, from the mainstream media to
the outer edge of the Internet, from friends and family to government agencies and
the largest corporations. Regardless of the seller or the level of sophistication,
though, the product is the same. It's a story of death and destruction, of gloom and doom.
Dark forces are descending upon us and the world as we know it is coming to an end.
Centuries of apocalyptic predictions are available now, marked down for a limited
time during this special, end-of-the- millennium sale. So hurry, buy now!
If ever there was a time to exercise "sales resistance," now is the time. Fear feeds
on fear and thrives in darkness. But it retreats from the Light and dies in the presence
of Love. There is nothing more powerful than Love. Yet, if enough of us choose to
buy into the fear, there will be ramifications. Our thoughts do have the power to
create. Even the most fleeting of thoughts are not idle. And obsessive thoughts can
have great power in our outer world. The old cliche "realizing our greatest fear"
has become a cliche because of its inherent truth. We draw to ourselves that upon which we
focus. If we choose to see the abundant demonstrations of Love and Light in our world,
we attract more of the same. The opposite, of course, is also true.
While none of us is exempt from experiencing fear with regard to the future, we do
have a choice about remaining in the throes of that fear or allowing the infinite
power of Light and Love to burn it away.
We are now just a few months away from the year 2000 - Y2K as it has become known,
sharing its name with the computer fiasco we're supposed to experience along with
its coming. The closer it comes, the more urgent the fear mongers' pitches become.
They will become louder, more plentiful and more horrendous still with each passing week.
They'll come at us from every direction and gain credibility as more traditional
and more sophisticated sources jump on the bandwagon and report them along with the
weather and financial news. Regardless of the fever of the pitch, we still have a choice. We
can choose to listen, to join the mania and let it take us where it will, or we can
choose to remain connected to our Infinite Source, to hold these ideas up to the
Light and watch them wither and vanish in the presence of Truth.
In Love and Light,
NO MORE DETAILS GIVEN ON WHO THIS STEVE IS.

Subject: Window's Y2K Fix
If you are running windows (EVEN THE LATEST VERSION!), this is a fix for a small Y2K
problem. After running this quick little test, much to my surprise, I learned that
my computer would have failed on 01-01-2000, due to a computer clock glitch. fortunately, a quick fix is provided, should your computer fail the test.
Click on "START".
Click on "SETTINGS".
Double click on "My Computer".
Double click on "Control Panel".
Double click on "Regional Settings" icon. Click on the "Date" tab at the top of the
page. Where it says "Short Date Sample", look and see if it show's a "two digit"year.
(Of course it does. That's the default setting for Window's 95, 98 and NT.
This date setting is the date that feeds application software and WILL NOT roll over
in the year 2000. It will roll over to 00. To change the setting:
Click on the option arrow for the "Short Date Style" and select the option that show's
MM/dd/yyyy. (Be sure your selection has four "y's" showing, not two.)
IMPORTANT: Click on "Apply" and then on "OK" at the bottom. It is easy enough to fix.
Every single installation of Window's worldwide is defaulted to fail the Y2K rollover.
Now you know how to prepare your computer.

Subject: A victory for activism
We can all use periodic reminders that activism does pay off. This week,
Home Depot has responded to consumer boycotts and protests over the last
couple of years by announcing that it will phase out the sale of lumber
from environmentally sensitive areas. This includes old growth forests
and other types of wood as well. This is a major victory for activists
and the environment.
It does pay off to speak your mind and demand what is right. Using your
consumer dollars as an activist tool, you can effectively get what you want.
You can read the whole Home Depot story at

Subject: On the overpopulation issue
Hi Jean -
Something struck me as I was reading the pieces on overpopulation: I've read that
countries with the highest rates of population growth are also those with the worst
records in women's rights. There seems to be a direct connection between the education
and enrichment of women's lives, and the ability of those women's countries to hold
their population growth within sustainable limits. It seems self-evident to me that
there's a connection between reverence for the feminine on large and small scales.
Perhaps as we come into our new inheritance, the deplorable situations of both women and
the earth will improve.

An Ode to Earth
You're young, my child, You play the game of life
With an astounding carelessness
Of a spoiled adolescent,
Having all of my wonders captured
Within the vessel of your bone and skin.
Or so you think.
I am Creator-Goddess, - I Imagine,
My eyes are all around,
And when I blink, -
You change, like a reflection
Of The Moon, - my Sister,
Upon the surface
Of My Waters.
You are my sons and daughters,
All One Child.
The One that once emerged
From Chaos, Logos, Love -
And all the Others -
Those, who live Above you
And Below you now, -
They bow to Universe,
When looking to the Stars, -
And so do I, - your Earth...
I gave you Birth...
Why do I write this verse?
Why do I gaze upon my beauty
With sheer disbelief
Of Mother, dissapointed
With her Son?
And though my Love
and you are One, -
I hurt, when I
Awake to feel
Your step upon my Being.
My skin is torn apart
By million tiny hands
Who mustered, in their
Mind, the secrets of Creation.
My trees are being cut.
My lakes and rivers, - spoilt.
My mountains, - destroyed.
There's war, disease, starvation.
Play, adolescent, play...
I guess I have to bear
Your vastly growing pain
- the pain of your Beginning...
Another cycle of Life,
Another pain of Birth,
Another million hands,
Another shift in meaning
That's how it goes...
Some day, when wondrous bounties of the Whole are your guiding marks in
Aim and Purpose, - you shall begin to see my eyes, - in gazes, thrown upon you by
your own children. They see my eyes already. They don't do me harm. And in your World,
- they die unable to fulfill the Genius that they are. Play, adolescent, play. Pray,
adolescent. Hold to what's dear to you. Or, better yet, - ask your children what's dear
to them. And hold on to that. They don't do me harm.
They love my animals and they don't kill my trees. They don't want me dead.

I returned from Bulgaria a couple of days ago and want to thank
those of you who were with me in spirit on the trip. Part of the trip

Please do not forget that whatever we fear the most is likly to affect us
the most. Fear will attrack it towards one as would a magnet with steel. It
is but a fact that all Scriptures of every religions and or faiths carry the
same basic message:
DO NOT BE FRIGHTENED.
This is based on 3 simple guidelines:
1 THOUGHT IS THE TOOL OF CREATION.
2 FEAR WILL BRING UPON ONESELF THE SAME TYPE OF ENERGY.
3 LOVE IS ALL.
Love is the ultimate reality and the only reality, the whole of your

There is a parable of The Little Soul which goes as follows :
"You may choose to be any part of God you may wish to be" said God to the
Little Soul. " You are Absolute Divinity, experiencing Itself. What Aspect
of Divinity do you wish to experience as You?"
"You mean I have a choice?" said the Little Soul. And God answered, "Yes,
You may choose to experience any Aspect of Divinity through you."
"Okay" said the Little Soul, "then I choose Forgiveness. I want to
experience my Self as the aspect of God called Complete Forgiveness."
Well this created a little challenge to God, as you can imagine.
There is no one to forgive. All that God has created is Perfection and Love.
"No one to forgive?" asked the Little soul, somewhat incredulously.
"No one" repeated God. "Look around you" He then added "Do you see any soul
less perfect, less wonderful than you?"
At This the Little Soul twirled around, and was surprised to see himself
surrounded by all the souls in heaven. They had come from far wide
throughout the Kingdom, because they heard that the Little Soul was having
an extraordinary conversation with Good.
" I see no one less perfect than I" the Little soul exclaimed. "Who then,
shall I have to forgive?" Just then, another soul stepped forward from the
crowd. "You may forgive me" said the Friendly Soul.
"For what?" the Little Soul asked.
"I will come to you in your next physical lifetime and do something for you
to forgive," replied the Friendly Soul.
"But what could you, a being of such Perfect Light, do to make me want to
forgive you?" the Little Soul wanted to know.
"Oh," smiled the Friendly Soul, " I am sure we can think of something"
"But why would you want to do this?" The Little Soul could not figure out
why a being of such perfection would want to slow down its vibration so much
that it could actually do something "bad".
"Simple" the Friendly Soul explained, "I would do it because I love you. You
want to experience your Self as Forgiving, don't you? Besides, you have done
the same for me."
"I have ?" asked the Little Soul.
"Of course. Don't you remember ? We've been All Of It, you and I. We've been
the Up and the Down of it, and the Left and the Right of it. We've been the
Here and the There of it, and the Now and the Then of it. We've been the Big
and the Small of it, the Male and the Female of it, the Good and the Bad of
it. We've all been the All of it.
And we've done it by agreement, so that each of us might experience ourselves as the
Grandest part of God. For we have understood that ...
In the absence of that which You Are Not, that Which you Are, is Not.
In the absence of 'cold,' you cannot be 'warm.' In the absence of 'sad,' you
cannot be 'happy,' without a thing called 'evil,' the experience you call
'good' cannot exist.
If you choose to be a thing, something or someone opposite to that has to
show up somewhere in your universe to make that possible."
The Friendly Soul then explained that those people are God's Special Angels.
and these conditions God's Gifts.
"I only ask one thing in return," the Friendly Soul declared.
"Anything! Anything," the Little Soul cried. He was excited now to know that
he could experience every Divine Aspect of God. He understood, now, The Plan.
"In the moment that I strike you and smite you," said the Friendly Soul, "in
the moment that I do the worst to you that you could imagine in that self-same moment
... remember Who I really Am."
"Oh, I won't forget!" promised the Little Soul. "I will see you in the perfection
with which I hold you now, and I will remember Who You Are, Always."
The promise of the Little Soul is the promise that God has made to every one
of us. Yet, have we Little Souls kept this promise to others.
This parable was extracted from book 3 of "CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD an
uncommon dialogue" by Neale Donald Walsh.
May it be of something to all of us on the path of "LOVE AS A WAY OF LIFE."

A child had arranged on the polished floor its toys, neatly and with
care. The drum, the bugles, the cannons, the soldiers, and an officer
with much gold - undoubtedly a field-marshal - the long train with
its polished engine, a tiny airplane, a big automobile, these were on
On the other, a doll with curly hair, dressed in the latest fashion,
its bare knees showing, black polished shoes with silk stockings.
A little further away, men in long coats and top hats. A bag with a
string to bind them all.
The child had gone.
Then up sprang a man in long coat, with his hat in hand:
"I represent God, and all of you listen. I have discovered Heaven and
Hell. All who obey go to Heaven and to the Paradise of Gods, but those
who disobey to Hell and to great sorrows.
"I know who is fit and worthy of Heaven, I alone can give spiritual
distinctions and spiritual titles, I alone can make a man happy or
unhappy, I alone can introduce God to you, I alone know the path to
Him, I am the priest of God."
"I am the protector, the ruler and the dispenser of life, I, with
my friends the merchants, decide to wage wars, to kill and to
slaughter, to protect you, my friends, from your enemies. Our country
is above all. Woe to all who do not kill, who do not wear uniform,
who are unpatriotic - which I decide. God is on our side, He waves
the only flag - our flag -" roared the man with the sword and many
Then a large fat man spoke quietly: "You two may say what you
please, I hold the monies. I am the dispenser of all things, of
temporal power, of cruelty and kindness, of progress and evolution,
without me nothing shall be decided. I am a man of great wealth,
thy wealth shall be the only God, I have finished."
Then the man whom nobody noticed, spoke: "I can destroy all your
Gods, your theories and your wealth, without me you can do nothing.
You cannot talk to me of God when I am hungry, feed me and I will
listen to your Gods. You cannot make me into cannon fodder. Pay me
and excite me and I shall fight. You are rich because of me, I toil
for you, suffer for you, go hungry for you and die for you, I am your
food and your comfort, your love and your destroyer, I am going to
strip you of all these, now I strike."
Then the lady with bare knees - "I am laughing because each of you
thinks you are the most important. Glorying in your own importance,
where would you all be without me? Still in that Heaven or Hell of
which you spoke, O friend with the long coat. I am your sister, your
mother, your wife and your love. I am on the stage of your bestial
amusement, I bear children - the agony of it - for your pleasure,
I dress showing just enough for your pleasure, I paint and make a
fool of myself for your pleasure, I covet your glances and long for
your love, I desire children without you, I seek freedom in spite of
you, I struggle to be free of your desires, to show my equality,
I do things that astonish you, I shall usurp all your places, your
honors, your glories. You worship me, you desecrate me. I am a woman
but your master."
Then all began to talk, advancing this complicated theory and that
complicated theory, this solution and that solution, class against
class, wealth against poverty, hungry against the well-fed.
A roar and utter chaos.
The child came back, gathered up its toys, knocking down one or two
in its hurry. Then it went out, laughing.
