New Delhi, May 27 (ANI): The Ministry of External Affairs has advised Indian nationals living in Yemen to exit the country through whatever commercial means available keeping in view the evolving situation and the increase in violent incidents.

The Indian nationals have also been advised not to venture out except under absolutely unavoidable circumstances till the time they are able to exit from Yemen.

“The Embassy of India and our Ambassador in Yemen will continue to function in Sanaa and can be contacted for any assistance by Indian nationals till such time they are able to exit the country,” the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) release said.

In the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, gun battles raged on Monday between government forces and fighters loyal to powerful tribal leader Sadiq al-Ahmar, who has sided with the growing opposition movement that has demanded an end to President Ali Abdullah Saleh‘s 32-year-long rule. (ANI)

Bahrain protesters gather in capital for third day

MANAMA (Reuters) – Thousands of Shi’ite demonstrators, inspired by popular revolts that toppled rulers in Tunisia and Egypt, gathered in Bahrain’s capital on Wednesday to mourn for a second protestor killed in clashes this week.

Several hundred gathered at a funeral procession for a man shot dead when police and mourners clashed at an earlier funeral procession on Tuesday.

“We are requesting our rights in a peaceful way,” said Bakr Akil, a 20 year-old university student, wearing a sheet stained with red ink that he said was a symbol of his willingness to sacrifice his life for freedom.

“I am optimistic that our big presence will achieve our demands,” Akil said.

Women dressed in black abayas followed the procession with their own chants calling for peace and Bahraini unity.

Elsewhere in central Manama, witnesses say about 2,000 protestors had spent the night in tents at Bahrain’s Pearl Roundabout, similar to the number marching on the streets a day earlier.

It remains to be seen whether the number would rise or fall during Wednesday. Some will have to return to work, after a public holiday on Tuesday to mark the Prophet Mohammed‘s birthday.

Police kept their distance, mostly confining themselves to a nearby dirt lot with dozens of SUV police vehicles. The ministry of Interior announced that all roads were open.

The demonstrators from Bahrain’s Shi’ite majority say the ruling Sunni minority shuts them out of housing, healthcare and government jobs.

“The United States is very concerned by recent violence surrounding protests in Bahrain,” State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said in a statement. “We also call on all parties to exercise restraint and refrain from violence.”

The main Shi’ite opposition bloc Wefaq, which boycotted parliament to protest the clampdown by Sunni security forces, said it would hold talks with the government on Wednesday.

Protesters said their main demand was the resignation of Prime Minister Sheikh Khalifa bin Salman al-Khalifa, who has governed the Gulf Arab state since its independence in 1971.

An uncle of King Hamad bin Isa al-Khalifa, he is thought to own much land and is seen as a symbol of the wealth of the ruling family.

DEMOGRAPHIC BALANCE

Activists say they also want the release of political prisoners, which the government has promised, and the creation of a new constitution.

Poverty, high unemployment and alleged attempts by the state to grant citizenship to Sunni foreigners to change the demographic balance have intensified discontent among Bahrain’s Shi’ites.

Around half of the tiny island kingdom’s 1.3 million people are Bahraini, the rest being foreign workers.

Analysts say large-scale unrest in Bahrain, home to the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet and a regional offshore banking center, could embolden marginalized Shi’ites in nearby Saudi Arabia, the world’s biggest oil exporter.

King Hamad expressed his condolences for “the deaths of two of our dear sons” in a televised speech and said a committee would investigate the killings.

Bahrain, in a move appeared aimed at preventing Shi’ite discontent from boiling over, had offered cash payouts of around 1,000 dinars ($2,650) per family in the run-up to this week’s protests.

Gunfire pounds anti-Mubarak protest camp in Cairo

Posted by Admin on February 3, 2011

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110203/ap_on_re_mi_ea/ml_egypt

CAIROHeavy automatic weapons fire pounded the anti-government protest camp in Cairo‘s Tahrir Square before dawn on Thursday in a dramatic escalation of what appeared to be a well-orchestrated series of assaults on the demonstrators. At least three protesters were killed by gunfire, according to one of the activists.

The crowds seeking an end to President Hosni Mubarak’s nearly three decades in power were still reeling from attacks hours earlier in which Mubarak supporters charged into the square on horses and camels, lashing people with whips, while others rained firebombs and rocks from rooftops.

The protesters accused Mubarak’s regime of unleashing a force of paid thugs and plainclothes police to crush their unprecedented nine-day-old movement, a day after the 82-year-old president refused to step down. They showed off police ID badges they said were wrested from their attackers. Some government workers said their employers ordered them into the streets.

The violence intensified overnight, as sustained bursts of automatic gunfire and powerful single shots rained into the square starting at around 4 a.m. and continuing for more than two hours.

Protest organizer Mustafa el-Naggar said he saw the bodies of three dead protesters being carried toward an ambulance. He said the gunfire came from at least three locations in the distance and that the Egyptian military, which has ringed the square with tank squads for days to try to keep some order, did not intervene.

Footage from AP Television News showed one tank spreading a thick smoke screen along a highway overpass just to the north of the square in an apparent attempt to deprive attackers of a high vantage point. The two sides seemed to be battling for control of the overpass, which leads to a main bridge over the Nile.

In the darkness, groups of men hurled firebombs and rocks from the bridge, where a wrecked car sat engulfed in flames. Others dragged two apparently lifeless bodies from the area.

Egypt‘s health minister did not answer a phone call seeking confirmation of the number killed.

At daybreak, the two sides were still battling with rocks and flaming bottles of gasoline along the front line on the northern edge of the square, near the famed Egyptian Museum.

Demonstrators took cover behind makeshift barricades of corrugated metal sheeting taken from a nearby construction site and Mubarak supporters seemed to hold their ground on the overpass. Between them stretched a burning no-man’s-land of smoldering cars, hunks of concrete and fires.

The fighting began more than 12 hours earlier, turning the celebratory atmosphere in the square over the previous day into one of terror and sending a stream of wounded to makeshift clinics in mosques and alleyways on the anti-government side. Three people died in the violence on Wednesday and 600 were injured.

Mustafa el-Fiqqi, a senior official from the ruling National Democratic Party, told The Associated Press that businessmen connected to the ruling party were responsible for what happened.

The notion that the state may have coordinated violence against protesters, who had kept a peaceful vigil in Tahrir Square for five days, prompted a sharp rebuke from the Obama administration.

“If any of the violence is instigated by the government, it should stop immediately,” said White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs.

The clashes marked a dangerous new phase in Egypt’s upheaval: the first significant violence between government supporters and opponents. The crisis took a sharp turn for the worse almost immediately after Mubarak rejected the calls for him to give up power or leave the country, stubbornly proclaiming he would die on Egyptian soil.

His words were a blow to the protesters. They also suggest that authorities want to turn back the clock to the tight state control enforced before the protests began.

Mubarak’s supporters turned up on the streets Wednesday in significant numbers for the first time. Some were hostile to journalists and foreigners. Two Associated Press correspondents and several other journalists were roughed up in Cairo. State TV had reported that foreigners were caught distributing anti-Mubarak leaflets, apparently trying to depict the movement as foreign-fueled.

The scenes of mayhem were certain to add to the fear that is already running high in this capital of 18 million people after a weekend of looting and lawlessness and the escape of thousands of prisoners from jails in the chaos.

Soldiers surrounding Tahrir Square fired occasional shots in the air throughout Wednesday’s clashes but did not appear to otherwise intervene and no uniformed police were seen. Most of the troops took shelter behind or inside the armored vehicles and tanks stationed at the entrances to the square.

“Why don’t you protect us?” some protesters shouted at the soldiers, who replied they did not have orders to do so and told people to go home.

“The army is neglectful. They let them in,” said Emad Nafa, a 52-year-old among the protesters, who for days had showered the military with affection for its neutral stance.

Some of the worst street battles raged near the Egyptian Museum at the edge of the square. Pro-government rioters blanketed the rooftops of nearby buildings and hurled bricks and firebombs onto the crowd below — in the process setting a tree ablaze inside the museum grounds. Plainclothes police at the building entrances prevented anti-Mubarak protesters from storming up to stop them.

The two sides pummeled each other with chunks of concrete and bottles at each of the six entrances to the sprawling plaza, where 10,000 anti-Mubarak protesters tried to fend off more than 3,000 attackers who besieged them. Some on the pro-government side waved machetes, while the square’s defenders filled the air with a ringing battlefield din by banging metal fences with sticks.

In one almost medieval scene, a small contingent of pro-Mubarak forces on horseback and camels rushed into the anti-government crowds, trampling several people and swinging whips and sticks. Protesters dragged some riders from their mounts, throwing them to the ground and beating their faces bloody. The horses and camels appeared to be ones used to give tourists rides around Cairo.

Dozens of men and women pried up pieces of the pavement with bars and ferried the piles of ammunition in canvas sheets to their allies at the front. Others directed fighters to streets needing reinforcements.

The protesters used a subway station as a makeshift prison for the attackers they managed to catch. They tied the hands and legs of their prisoners and locked them inside. People grabbed one man who was bleeding from the head, hit him with their sandals and threw him behind a closed gate.

Some protesters wept and prayed in the square where only a day before they had held a joyous, peaceful rally of a quarter-million, the largest demonstration so far.

Egyptian Health Minister Ahmed Sameh Farid said three people died and at least 611 were injured in Tahrir Square on Wednesday. One of those killed fell from a bridge near the square; Farid said the man was in civilian clothes but may have been a member of the security forces.

Farid did not say how the other two victims, both young men, were killed. It was not clear whether they were government supporters or anti-Mubarak demonstrators.

After years of tight state control, protesters emboldened by the uprising in Tunisia took to the streets on Jan. 25 and mounted a once-unimaginable series of demonstrations across this nation of 80 million. For the past few days, protesters who camped out in Tahrir Square reveled in a new freedom — publicly expressing their hatred for the Mubarak regime.

“After our revolution, they want to send people here to ruin it for us,” said Ahmed Abdullah, a 47-year-old lawyer in the square.

Another man shrieked through a loudspeaker: “Hosni has opened the door for these thugs to attack us.”

The pressure for demonstrators to clear the square mounted throughout the day, beginning early when a military spokesman appeared on state TV and asked them to disperse so life in Egypt could get back to normal.

It was a change in attitude by the army, which for the past few days had allowed protests to swell with no interference and even made a statement saying they had a legitimate right to demonstrate peacefully.

Then the regime began to rally its supporters in significant numbers for the first time, demanding an end to the protest movement. Some 20,000 Mubarak supporters held an angry but mostly peaceful rally on Wednesday across the Nile River from Tahrir, responding to calls on state TV.

They said Mubarak’s concessions were enough. He has promised not to run for re-election in September, named a new government and appointed a vice president for the first time, widely considered his designated successor.

They were bitter at the jeers hurled at Mubarak.

“I feel humiliated,” said Mohammed Hussein, a 31-year-old factory worker. “He is the symbol of our country. When he is insulted, I am insulted.”

The anti-Mubarak movement has vowed to intensify protests to force him out by Friday.

State TV said Vice President Omar Suleiman called “on the youth to heed the armed forces’ call and return home to restore order.” From the other side, senior anti-Mubarak figure Mohamed ElBaradei demanded the military “intervene immediately and decisively to stop this massacre.”

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton spoke with Suleiman to condemn the violence and urge Egypt’s government to hold those responsible for it accountable, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said.

Egypt crisis: Israel faces danger in every direction

Posted by Admin on February 2, 2011

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/israel/8296776/Egypt-crisis-Israel-faces-danger-in-every-direction.html

The Egyptian crisis is ringing alarm bells in Jerusalem, writes David Horovitz.

Protesters take part in an anti-Mubarak protest at Tahrir square in Cairo

Protesters take part in an anti-Mubarak protest at Tahrir square in Cairo

The Middle East is in ferment at the moment – but despite the general excitement, the outcome could be a grim one for Israel, and for the West more generally.

In the past few weeks, we have seen a president ousted in Tunisia. We’ve seen protests in Yemen. We’ve seen Iran essentially take control of Lebanon, where its proxy, Hizbollah, has ousted a relatively pro-Western prime minister and inserted its own candidate. We’ve seen the King of Jordan rush to sack his cabinet amid escalating protests. We’ve seen reports that similar demonstrations are planned for Syria, where the president, Bashar Assad, will find it far harder to get away with gunning down the crowds than his father did in 1982. And most dramatically, we are seeing the regime in Egypt – the largest, most important Arab country – totter, as President Mubarak faces unprecedented popular protest, and the likelihood that he will have to step down sooner rather than later.

It is tempting to be smug. Egypt’s blink-of-an-eye descent into instability underlines afresh the uniqueness of Israel, that embattled sliver of enlightened land in a largely dictatorial region. Those who like to characterise it as the root of all the Middle East’s problems look particularly foolish: the people on the streets aren’t enraged by Israel, but because their countries are so unlike Israel, so lacking in the freedoms and economic opportunities that both Israeli Jews and Israeli Arabs take
for granted.

Yet the country is deeply concerned. The main worry is over a repeat of the events in Iran a little over 30 years ago, when popular protest ousted the Shah, only to see him replaced by a far more dangerous, corrupt, misogynist and intolerant regime. Iran is plainly delighted by what is unfolding. With peerless hypocrisy, a government that mowed down its own people less than two years ago is encouraging the same spirit of protest in Egypt. Its allies in the Muslim Brotherhood are well placed to fill any leadership vacuum – and, for all the group’s dubious claims to be relatively moderate, it embraces leadership figures deeply hostile to Israel and to the West. The Muslim Brotherhood, it should not be forgotten, gave birth to Hamas, the terrorist group which now runs Gaza, after killing hundreds in its takeover.

The danger for the Egyptians is that, when the protests are over, their brave efforts will have replaced Mubarak not with a leadership more committed to freedom and democracy, but quite the reverse. Yet for Israelis, it underlines the challenges we face when it comes to peacemaking.

Our country, it is often forgotten, is 1/800th of the size of the Arab world, only nine miles wide at its narrowest point. We are not some territorial superpower that can afford not to care if there is hostility all around: we desperately need normalised relations with our neighbours. But if we do a lousy deal, with a regime that is either unstable or not genuinely committed to reconciliation, the consequences could be fatal.

Israelis, I believe, would make almost any territorial compromise in the cause of genuine peace.
But where both the Palestinians and the Syrians are concerned, we’re far from certain that we have a dependable partner. And as the Egyptian experience is demonstrating, even our most concrete certainties can turn fluid overnight.

For half of Israel’s lifespan, our alliance with Egypt has been central to our foreign policy and military strategy. To achieve it, we relinquished every last inch of the Sinai desert – and, until this weekend, we scarcely had a reason to question that decision. Yes, it’s been a cold peace: there’s been no profound acceptance of Israel among ordinary Egyptians, or the country’s media and professional guilds. Yet Egypt under Mubarak has been less critical of Israel than most other Arab states, gradually intensifying the effort to prevent the smuggling of missiles, rockets and other weaponry into Hamas-controlled Gaza. The absence of war on our Egyptian border has also freed our strained military forces to focus on other, more threatening frontiers.

Over the past two years, as Turkey has moved out of the Western orbit, our other vital regional alliance has slipped away. Now Egypt could also be lost – at a time when Iran and its nuclear ambitions cast an ever greater shadow over the region, and over Israel’s future.

But perhaps the most profound concern is over the reversal of momentum that the Egyptian protests could come to represent. For a generation, Israel has been trying to widen the circle of normalisation – to win acceptance as a state among states. We made peace with Egypt, then with Jordan. We built ties with Morocco and the Gulf. We have reached out to the Syrians and Palestinians.

Now, for the first time in more than 30 years, we see that momentum reversing. We wonder whether Egypt will continue to constitute a stable partner. We worry about the potential for instability in Jordan. We see that all our borders are now “in play” – that the Israel Defence Forces must overhaul their strategy to meet the possibility of dangers in every direction.

We had hoped that the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty of 1979 would come to be the defining event of the modern era. Now, we fear that our world will be defined by another event from that year: Iran’s dismal Islamic revolution.

Arab leaders keep a wary eye on Tunisia

Posted by Admin on January 22, 2011

http://www.thehindu.com/todays-paper/tp-opinion/article1103937.ece

Mona El-Naggar and Michael Slackman

From the crowded, run-down streets of Cairo to the oil-financed halls of power in Kuwait, Arab leaders appear increasingly rattled by the unfolding events in Tunisia and elsewhere in the Arab world, where men continued to set themselves on fire — two more in Egypt on January 18, and a third who was stopped.

Though the streets of Cairo, Algiers and other Arab cities around the region were calm, the acts of self-immolation served as a reminder that the core complaints of economic hardship and political repression that led to the Tunisian uprising resonated strongly across the Middle East.

“You have leaders who have been in power for a very long time, one party controlling everything, marginalisation of the opposition, no transfer of power, plans for succession, small groups running the business, vast corruption,” said Emad Gad, a political scientist at the Ahram Center for Political and Strategic Studies. “All of this makes the overall environment ripe for an explosion at any second.”

The differences in each country

But while there is widespread anticipation about a revolutionary contagion, particularly in Egypt and Algeria, where there have been angry and violent protests, political analysts said that each country is different, making such conclusions premature. Egypt lacks the broad and educated middle class of Tunisia, while in Algeria the middle class failed to join the angry young men in rioting, regional experts said.

In Jordan, an Islamist opposition party, the Islamic Action Front, issued a demand that the offices of prime minister and other high officials be made elective instead of appointive, as they are now. But like the other outbursts, it quickly died away.

“For all the sound and fury, it doesn’t look like much political dividend will come out of what happened in Algeria, in the short term,” said Hugh Roberts, an independent scholar and a specialist on North Africa based here. “It looks like it has gone quiet. It was a big blast of angry, hot air, but in an unfocused way, which leaves most things the same.”

So for now, the most pronounced impact from the unexpected Tunisian uprising is a lingering sense of uncertainty. That is itself either unnerving or exhilarating, depending on one’s perspective, in a region sitting on the fault lines of religious strife, political repression and economic uncertainty, experts said.

“We did not expect Tunisia to go the direction it has. Who had Tunisia on the mind a few weeks ago?” said Amr Hamzawy, research director with the Carnegie Middle East Center in Beirut. “The ingredients are partially there for it to happen again, but we just do not know.”

Some Arab leaders have ordered security crackdowns to keep calm in the streets, and offered some symbolic gestures. In Syria, President Bashar al-Assad backed off the imposition of austerity measures. In Kuwait, the emir doled out money.

Economic summit

In Egypt, where organisers are calling for a nationwide protest on January 25, officials struggled to project a sense of calm and normalcy, while stepping up talk of economic reform and government accountability. Arab leaders have also said they will focus on combating unemployment when they meet later this week at an economic summit meeting in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheik.

Fahmy Howeidy, an Egyptian political expert and newspaper columnist, said that while he did not believe conditions were ripe for a similar uprising in Egypt, the government was keenly aware that “what happened in Tunisia has definitely created a different atmosphere. It convinced people that they can revolt in the streets, and that these regimes are not as strong or as mighty as they appear.”

Before the riots in Tunisia turned into a mass uprising against the rule of the long-time autocratic president, Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali, it appeared that either Egypt or Algeria stood a greater chance of some kind of mass public revolt. For years, both have suffered from sclerotic political systems led by aging presidents, with support from the military. For years, both have confronted protests over difficult economic conditions and widespread youth unemployment.

But Mr. Hamzawy noted that in Tunisia the middle class and the trade unions joined protests that initially broke out over economic complaints, and helped transform the discontent into calls for political change. In Egypt, where the leadership continues to rely on a decades-old emergency law that allows arrest without charge, there is a lot of room for free and critical speech, offering a safety valve for expression that did not exist in Tunisia, he said.

In Egypt, he said, the array of interests that benefit from corruption is much wider than in Tunisia, where it was restricted to a small circle around the president. That, he said, means there are more people with an interest in preserving the system. And finally, he said, the military in Tunisia was not politicised and did not have any experience in securing city streets, unlike in Egypt, where the military has risen to the government’s defence before, and most likely would again. In addition, Mr. Hamzawy said that the protests that have racked Egypt recently have mostly been by workers for economic reasons, and that the government effectively bought them off with concessions before they began making political demands.

In Algeria

In Algeria, Mr. Roberts said, there are two primary differences with Tunisia that make comparisons imperfect. The first, he said, was that in Tunisia the riots spread all over the country and eventually involved different elements of society all on the same side. “That gave the movement its moral power,” he said.

By comparison, he said, “In Algeria, that never happened. There was no real support from trade unions, in fact none at all as far as one can see, and there was a good deal of middle class hostility to them because of the destruction. The guys rioting were desperate, angry young men with no political perspective at all.”

But more fundamentally, he said, Algeria is not as repressive as Tunisia was. “It is not an autocracy, it is an oligarchy,” he said, explaining that in addition to the President, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, there are multiple power centres, like the military, the intelligence services and the elite bureaucrats.

That, he said, meant that unlike in Tunisia there is no one target of public ire, and no public sense that protests would help to dislodge those at fault. “Even though Bouteflika is unpopular, people know their problems do not simply come down to him,” he said. “You have a situation where there is a great deal of discontent, including in the middle class, but no one has any prescription for how to deal with it.” ( Mona El-Naggar reported from Cairo, and Michael Slackman from Berlin.) — © New York Times News Service

Tug-a-war

Posted by Admin on December 11, 2010

The messages at this site are the result of communications between Mark Kimmel and beings who are not the current indigenous humans of this planet. The communications have been verified as coming only from those who are of the highest Christ Consciousness. There are now 148 messages on this site; they build on each other. For their full impact, read them in sequence beginning with September 2008 (archived below). They detail Earth’s transformation, our place in the universe, and a positive outlook for our future – if we are willing to act. I hope, by presenting them to you, that they spark your curiosity, and a decision to join with others to create a new civilization on Earth. As always I encourage you to seek your own unique truth, and live it.

This is my 26th posting to Mark’s Corner for 2010 that involves communications with non-indigenous humans. It is with great pleasure that I welcome back Adrial, a celestial of this universe who has observed Earth humans since they first came to this planet.

Greetings to all. You are witnessing these days the final phase of the tug-a-war between those who adhere to the dictates of the dark energy and those who are of the light. Your brothers and sisters continue to beam the light of love from the starships about your planet. From my perspective of one who has witnessed the evolution of humanity on this planet from the very beginning, it is a wondrous time indeed.

You can see the efforts of those who would continue the reign of fear in the reports of your media that the economy of the world is returning to normal, and that consumer confidence is pushing upward. They would have you believe these things because the tug-a-war is between the energies produced by fear, and the reactions to thereto, and actions produced by the energies of the light of love as the truth — about the wars in the middle east, about the secret words of diplomacy, and about the scandals within the financial world — is being uncovered in unprecedented ways. Truth is awakening some among the sleeping masses, yet most slumber on accepting what the media feeds them.

Witness the stronger governments of Europe propping up the weak whose economies are failing under the weight of debt. Witness the enormous amounts of new money flowing into the economies of the U.S. and others in a vein attempt to convince the ordinary people that governments, and those in power will take care of them, so that it is okay to return to their lives of servitude. It is all lies to push and pull people once again to maintain the old order of working for the elites. Witness the wrangling among politicians, and the extraordinary amounts of money spend to elect them – all in order to allow them to exercise power in the current paradigm. Witness the unusual amounts of advertising and price cuts among retailers to encourage spending — anything to get the economy going gain. Yet many ordinary people sense that times are changing and they are less willing to go along.

Once again it is all about energy. Some point to psychology as what drives the stock market. But the old rules of psychology are waning.  Even those who would gamble with their money sense that something is not right, that times are different this time.

The tug-a-war is being played out around the world as those in power struggle to stay in power, as the wealthy struggle to hold onto that which they have accumulated. The house of cards that is the world wide monetary system is slowly collapsing. It is not business as usual, and almost everyone senses it. The collective energy of the people is no longer as supportive of the old model as before.

The numbers of those who are embracing the light are much smaller than those who adhere to the current paradigm, however the former are more powerful than the latter. These two forces are those who are pulling on the rope of the tug-a-war. The sleeping masses make up the vast remainder of the population; they are unaware of the rope.

On the political scene, the leaders of the major governments meet regularly to find ways to support the current paradigm. While they wrangle for advantage for their particular country, all sense that the underpinnings of their power are crumbling. They struggle to find 3rd dimension solutions when the only true solution are those of a higher energy. Since they are wedded to hammering things out in the density of a fear–based world, solutions elude them.

The trickle down effects of the crumbling world economy and governments are felt at the local level everywhere. Unemployment is stubbornly prevalent, and is about twice as high as reported in the media. Governments are making spending cuts that only increase unemployment and continue the downward spiral. The educational system and all public services are being affected. It is as if the air is being released from a giant balloon: All is slowly collapsing.

The energy of the light is reaching a few on your world. There are worthy initiatives, small points of light here and there. People are taking responsibility for themselves, plus they are forming communities of mutual support. They are finding ways to avoid the fearful end of the rope in the tug-a-war. Consciously or not, they are finding ways to take advantage of the love being showered on your planet by your space brothers and sisters.

The tug-a-war is being played out against a background of energies affecting your planet. Energies are coming from the Earth herself as she sheds the shackles imposed by the dark energy, and prepares to rid herself of the on-going assaults to her environment. Energies, beyond those of the starships are coming from the sun, which acts as a giant focal point for energies from the universe. These are combining to raise temperatures worldwide, increase the number and severity of earthquakes and volcanoes, and cause extreme weather. All of these will increase as the energies become more extreme.

You can see the tug-a-war in your daily lives if you will avoid the relentless prattle of the media. You can observe the tug-a-war if you will watch closely the actions of your fellow men and women as they choose to follow the light or continue in fear. You may feel the tug-a-war if you engage in heartfelt conversations with others wherein they will tell you that they too sense the changes. You can sense the tug-a-war if you will go into your heart, into the stillness, and ask.

The energies of change are upon your world. It is time for you to awaken to your enslavement. We well realize how encompassing it is. We who bring you the light of love are working to break your bonds. Be prepared for the changes coming your way as the tug-a-war reaches it inevitable conclusion, and the glorious energies of the rest of the universe pour into the void left by the absence of fear. Yes, the tug-a-war is taking longer than we had originally anticipated. The forces aligned with the darkness are more strongly entrenched than your space brothers and sisters had imaged, but all is now coming to an end, a most favorable end.

Thank you Adrial. As usual your perspective allows us to see the larger picture in new ways.

AP – FILE – Seif al-Islam Gadhafi talks to reporters at the ancient city of Cyrene near the city of al-Bayda

CAIRO – As it dismantled its nuclear weapons program, Libya sparked a tense diplomatic standoff with the United States last year when it refused to hand over its last batch of highly enriched uranium to protest the slowness of improving ties with Washington, leaked U.S. diplomatic memos reveal.

The monthlong standoff, which has not previously been made public, was resolved only after a call from U.S. Secretary of State HillaryRodham Clinton to Libya’s foreign minister, apparently to underline Washington’s commitment to warming relations. After the call, Libya allowed Russia to take away the uranium in December 2009.

But for that month, U.S. officials issued frantic warnings that the 11.5 pounds (5.2 kilograms) of highly enriched uranium was vulnerable to start leaking or be stolen, since it was sitting at Libya’s Tajoura nuclear facility with only a single armed guard.

The incident illustrates Libya’s unpredictability as it shakes off its longtime pariah status and rebuilds ties with the U.S. and the world. The series of memos released by the WikiLeaks website to the Lebanese newspaper Al-Akhbar, which published them this week, also shows the efforts of the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli — which reopened in 2007 after a closure of nearly 30 years — to track Libya’s opaque and often confusing politics. Several memos speculate on the jockeying for succession to power among the sons of Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi — Seif al-Islam, Mutassim and Khamis.

“Burgeoning sibling rivalry between Gadhafi’s progeny is near inevitable,” reads a November 2009 embassy memo. Gadhafi “has placed his sons … on a succession high wire act, perpetually thrown off-balance, in what might be a calculated effort by the aging leader to prevent any one of them from authoritatively gaining the prize.”

Gadhafi’s 2003 decision to renounce terrorism and dismantle Libya’s secret nuclear, chemical and biological weapons development program was a key step in opening the door to normalization with the U.S and the West. Since that time, the U.S., Russia and other countries have been transporting centrifuges, uranium and other nuclear equipment out of Libya. The U.S. and the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, have declared Libya’s nuclear and chemical weapons programs fully dismantled.

The standoff was a last-minute surprise.

On Nov. 23, 2009, a Russian cargo plane landed at Tripoli, expecting to take the last of Libya’s highly enriched uranium, contained in seven containers known as casks. Then the Libyans informed the Russians and Americans that the material would not be handed over — and the plane left without the cargo, according to a Nov. 25 memo from the U.S. Embassy in Tripoli.

The embassy raised the alarm, warning that Tajoura was “lightly guarded” and that U.S. experts had seen “only one security guard with a gun” there. It said it asked the Libyans to beef up security and remove a loading crane at the site “to prevent an intruder from using it to remove the casks.” It also warned that within three months, the casks would start to leak and release radioactive material.

Two days later, Seif al-Islam Gadhafi — seen as a the main reform proponent in Libya — told the ambassador that the shipment was halted because Libya was “fed up” with the slow pace of relations between Tripoli and Washington, another memo reported.

Specifically, he said Libya wanted deals to purchase military equipment and other “compensation” for its dismantled facilities.

More broadly, he said the U.S.-Libyan relationship was “not going well” and pointed to slights against his father during his visit to New York the previous September for the U.N. General Assembly — including protests in several suburbs against Gadhafi’s attempts to pitch a ceremonial Bedouin-style tent to stay in, and the refusal to allow Gadhafi to visit Ground Zero.

In the memo, the embassy recommended that Clinton contact Libyan Foreign Minister Musa Kusa with a “general statement of commitment to work with the Libyans to move the relationship forward,” coupled with a “strong” demand that the uranium be released and “not be held hostage.”

On Dec. 3, Clinton called Kusa with “the statement of commitment,” a later memo said, without specifying the content of the message. Soon after, the embassy reported that the Libyans promised the uranium would be released.

On Dec. 20, the Russian cargo plane returned, the uranium was loaded and taken to Russia the next day.

“Today’s flight marked the successful completion of Libya’s commitments to dismantle its nuclear weapons programs,” the embassy reported.

Obama, troops cheer each other in Afghan visit

By BEN FELLER, AP White House Correspondent – 1 hr 11 mins ago

Barack Obama

AP – President Barack Obama greets troops at a rally during an unannounced visit at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan

BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – In a rousing holiday-season visit, President Barack Obama on Friday told cheering U.S. troops inAfghanistan they’re succeeding in their vital mission fighting terrorism. But after he flew in secrecy for 13 hours to get here, foul weather kept him from nearby Kabul and a meeting to address frayed relations with Afghan President Hamid Karzai

Obama’s surprise visit to the war zone, his second as president, came 10 days before he is to address the nation about a new review of U.S. strategy to defeat the Taliban and strengthen the Afghan government so American troops can begin leaving next year.

The trip also came at a particularly awkward moment in already strained U.S. relations with Afghanistan because of new and embarrassing leaked cables alleging widespread fraud and underscoring deep American concerns about Karzai.

There was no mention of that as the president spoke to more than 3,500 service members packed into a huge airplane hangar. After his remarks, he spent more than 10 minutes shaking hands, going around the hangar three times as they grabbed his hand and held cameras and cell phones high to take photos.

Obama stayed on this U.S. military base, the headquarters of the 101st Airborne Division, the entire time he was here, just under four hours. He huddled with U.S. Gen. David Petraeus, the top NATO commander in Afghanistan and U.S. Ambassador Karl Eikenberry. And he visited wounded soldiers at a base hospital, personally dispensing five Purple Hearts to wounded service members.

“Because of the progress we’re making, we look forward to a new phase next year, the beginning of the transition to Afghan responsibility,” Obama told the troops. He thanked them for their efforts, noting the difficulty in being away from home during the holidays, and they repeatedly cheered him in return.

He said the U.S. was continuing “to forge a partnership with the Afghan people for the long term.” And he said, “we will never let this country serve as a safe haven for terrorists who would attack the United States of America again. That will never happen.”

There are now about 150,000 coalition forces in Afghanistan, roughly 100,000 of them Americans. The U.S. and its NATO partners agreed last month in Lisbon, Portugal, to begin turning over control to local Afghan authorities in 2011, with a goal of completing that transition by the end of 2014.

White House officials said gusty winds and swirling dust led them to cancel Obama’s planned helicopter visit to Kabul, about 30 miles north of here. A backup plan for a secure videoconference was also scrapped.

Waheed Omar, a Karzai spokesman, said the Afghan leader was “not upset” that the palace visit was scuttled. He noted that the two leaders had met during the conference in Lisbon and discussed the situation in Afghanistan in detail.

Obama, who has tripled U.S. troop strength in Afghanistan, has come under increasing pressure to demonstrate progress in turning the tide against the Taliban insurgency in the battle that has now gone on for more than nine years. In his remarks to the troops, Obama cited “important progress.”

“We said we were going to break the Taliban’s momentum. And that’s what you’re doing. You’re going on the offense, tired of playing defense, targeting their leaders, pushing them out of their strongholds. Today, we can be proud that there are fewer areas under Taliban control and more Afghans have a chance to build a more hopeful future,” he said.

He thanked the troops for their work and sacrifice “on behalf of more than 300 million Americans.”

“You give me hope. You give me inspiration. Your resolve shows that Americans will never succumb to fear,” he said to cheers and shouts.

Petraeus, the commander Obama is looking to to turn things around, introduced Obama to the troops and teased the president about the basketball injury to his lip last week. Presenting him with a 101st Airborne T-shirt, Petraeus told the president: “No one will mess with you if you wear this, Mr. President.”

At the base hospital, Obama met with platoon members from the unit that lost six soldiers this week in brazen killings by an Afghan border policeman who turned fire on his U.S. trainers.

Mentioning that visit and his meeting with what Petraeus called “wounded warriors,” Obama told the assembled troops: “I don’t need to tell you this is a tough fight. … It’s a tough business. Progress comes slow. And there are going to be difficult days ahead. Progress comes at a high price.”

Newly leaked U.S. cables show American diplomats portraying Afghanistan as rife with graft to the highest levels of government, with tens of millions of dollars flowing out of the country and a cash transfer network that facilitates bribes for corrupt Afghan officials, drug traffickers and insurgents.

A main concern in the cables appears to be Karzai himself, who emerges as a mercurial figure. In a July 7, 2009, dispatch, Eikenberry describes “two contrasting portraits” of the Afghan president.

“The first is of a paranoid and weak individual unfamiliar with the basics of nation building and overly self-conscious that his time in the spotlight of glowing reviews from the international community has passed,” the cable says. “The other is that of an ever-shrewd politician who sees himself as a nationalist hero. … In order to recalibrate our relationship with Karzai, we must deal with and challenge both of these personalities.”

Obama aides later said the subject of the cables didn’t come up during the Obama-Karzai phone call, which lasted 15 minutes. Ben Rhodes, a White House national security aide, told reporters Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton had already spoken to Karzai about WikiLeaks disclosures.

After the long, unannounced flight from Washington, Obama landed in darkness under intense security.

He stepped off Air Force One clad in a brown leather jacket that he was also wearing when he spoke to troops. Plans of his trip into the war zone were tightly guarded.

Despite the upcoming review results, White House officials on the trip played down the significance of his upcoming speech. No big policy changes are expected, they said.

To deal with any doubts about reasons for the Karzai meeting being canceled, reporters traveling with Obama were escorted outside the air field hangar to get a glimpse of the conditions. The wind was blowing strongly, kicking up dust clouds as troops streamed in to hear Obama. An American flag whipped against its pole. At the presidential palace, U.S. armored vehicles were securing entrances. Carpets were ready to be unrolled.

The war in Afghanistan is the nation’s longest after Vietnam, launched in the weeks after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. This has been the deadliest year to date for U.S. forces in Afghanistan. More than 1,300 have died here since the war began, more than 450 in 2010.

The visit comes a year after Obama announced he was sending an additional 30,000 troops to try to gain control — and then get the United States out — of a worsening conflict. Obama’s plan is to start pulling U.S. forces out of Afghanistan in July.

US, South Korea reach highly coveted trade deal

By JULIE PACE and KEN THOMAS, Associated Press – 50 mins ago

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101204/ap_on_bi_ge/us_us_skorea_trade_talks

S.Korea trade deal in limbo after talks failure
S.Korea trade deal in limbo after talks failure

WASHINGTON – The U.S. and South Korea have reached an agreement on America’s largest trade pact in more than a decade, a highly coveted deal the Obama administration hopes will boost U.S. exports and create tens of thousands of jobs at home.

After a week of marathon negotiations, representatives from both countries broke through a stalemate Friday morning on outstanding issues related to the automobile industry, which have been a sticking point in the talks. The agreement would be the largest U.S. trade dealsince the 1994 North American Free Trade Agreement, or NAFTA, with Canada and Mexico and would bolster U.S. ties with the fast-growing South Korea economy.

South Korea is agreeing to allow the U.S. to lift a 2.5 percent tariff on Korean cars in five years, instead of cutting the tariff immediately. The agreement also allows each U.S. automaker to export 25,000 cars to South Korea as long as they meet U.S. federal safety standards and allows the U.S. to continue a 25 percent tariff on trucks for eight years and then phase it out by the 10th year. South Korea would be required to eliminate its 10 percent tariff on U.S. trucks immediately.

President Barack Obama hailed the agreement as a “landmark trade deal” that would support at least 70,000 U.S. jobs.

“We are strengthening our ability to create and defend manufacturing jobs in the United States, increasing exports of agricultural products for American farmers and ranchers and opening Korea’s services market to American companies,” Obama said in a statement.

South Korean President Lee Myung-bak praised the deal as bringing huge economic benefits to both countries and further boosting the two nations’ alliance.

“This agreement is meaningful in that it has laid the basis for a mutual win-win by reflecting interests for the two countries in a balanced manner,” Lee said in a statement posted on the presidential website.

The White House had hoped to strike a deal last month during Obama’s trip to Seoul for the G-20 economic summit, but both countries were unable to broker a compromise on issues pertaining to trade of autos and beef. U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk and his counterpart, Korean Trade Minister Kim Jong-hoon, resumed negotiations outside Washington this week.

The agreement did not address issues with the beef trade. The U.S. had sought greater access to the beef market in South Korea, which restricts imports of older U.S. meat. A senior administration official said discussions on beef are ongoing. The official insisted on anonymity to discuss private negotiations.

The wider agreement would eliminate tariffs on more than 95 percent of industrial and consumer goods within five years, a move that the U.S. International Trade Commission estimated would increase exports of U.S. goods by at least $10 billion. The deal would also open up South Korea’s vast $560 billion services markets to U.S. companies.

Lee expressed hope for a quick ratification of the deal by the legislatures of the two countries. Obama administration officials offered no timeline for ratification on Capitol Hill.

The South Korea deal has been widely supported by those in the private sector and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has criticized other administration policies as antibusiness.

“This agreement will create thousands of new jobs, advance our national goal of doubling exports in five years, and demonstrate that America is once again ready to lead on trade,” Chamber president Tom Donohue said Friday. Ford CEO Alan Mulally said the deal was, “a transformational agreement” that would open one of the most closed auto markets in the world to U.S. manufacturers.

The chairman of the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea, David Ruch, called the trade deal “a historic juncture.” And California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who visited South Korea during an Asia trade mission in September, issued a statement urging Congress to ratify “this vital agreement as soon as possible.”

The deal was a bright spot for Obama on a day the Labor Department reported weak economic weak economic news: the U.S. unemployment rate climbed to 9.8 percent and job growth slowed to a trickle. Obama has pledged to aggressively seek new markets for U.S. exports in South Korea and other countries as a way to spur job growth at home.

The agreement also won Obama some rare support from the GOP.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said the agreement was, “a positive development” toward promoting economic growth and private sector job creation. Rep. Eric Cantor, R-Va., said the agreement would make U.S. exports more competitive and create more opportunities for American companies to create jobs.

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., said he was deeply disappointed that the deal didn’t address the ongoing issues with the beef trade. Baucus said he would reserve judgment on the larger trade agreement until those issues were resolved.

The U.S. and South Korea reached a deal in 2007 that slashed tariffs and other barriers to commerce. But the pact has been in limbo since then, due in part to political changes in both countries and the Obama administration’s demands that South Korea make concessions on trade in autos and beef. Administration officials hoped finalizing the South Korea deal could lead to breakthroughs on other pending agreements with Panama and Colombia.

Bilateral trade between South Korea and the U.S. totaled $66.7 billion in 2009, down sharply from $84.7 billion in 2008 as global commerce suffered during the economic downturn.

The U.S. auto industry would be one of the biggest benefactors of the agreements. Figures compiled by auto industry groups in South Korea show that it exported 449,403 vehicles to the U.S. last year, while South Koreans purchased 6,140 vehicles made by American manufacturers, based on vehicle registrations.

“This trade agreement, once finalized, will provide jobs, products, and renewed sense of partnership to both the United States and South Korea,” said Cody Lusk, president of the American International Automobile Dealers Association.

But Lori Wallach, director of the liberal-leaning advocacy group Public Citizen, criticized the deal, saying it would lead foreign investors to move U.S. jobs overseas and put Obama’s political future in peril.

“Choosing to advance Bush’s NAFTA-style Korea free trade agreement rather than the new trade policy President Obama promised during his campaign will mean more American job loss and puts the White House at odds with the majority of Americans,” Wallach said in a statement.

Spain military takes over air traffic control

By ALAN CLENDENNING and HAROLD HECKLE, Associated Press – 1 hr 5 mins ago

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101204/ap_on_bi_ge/eu_spain_airport_closures

Passengers wait for news about their flights at the Barajas airport in Madrid.

Passengers wait for news about their flights at the Barajas airport in Madrid.

MADRID – Spain’s military took control of the nation’s airspace Friday night after air traffic controllers staged a massive sickout that stranded at least 330,000 travelers on the eve of a long holiday weekend, forcing the government to shut down Madrid’s big international hub and seven other airports.

About six hours after the nation descended into total travel chaos, Deputy Prime Minister Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba announced that the Defense Ministry had “taken control of air traffic in all the national territory.” He said the army would make all decisions on air trafficcontrol, organization, planning and supervision.

If enough controllers do not show up for work Saturday to restore normal flight operations, Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero plans to declare a national emergency that would force them to do so, Rubalcaba said. No-show controllers will face unspecified criminal charges punishable by “serious prison time,” he said.

Spanish flagship carrier Iberia SA said all of its flights in and out of Madrid were suspended until at least 11 a.m. Saturday, but other airlines did not give guidance for when flights might resume.

The controllers abandoned their posts amid a lengthy dispute over working conditions and after Zapatero and his ministers on Friday approved a package of austerity measures — including a move to partially privatize airports and hand over management of the Madrid and Barcelona airports to the private sector.

Angry passengers waited in huge lines for hours until giving up when it became clear their flights would not depart. Air traffic controllers meeting to plot strategy at a hotel near Madrid’s airport were heckled and filmed by stranded passengers as the controllers entered.

“To the unemployment line with you all!” one man yelled at the controllers, in footage shown by Spanish National Television.

Handfuls of passengers made it out of Madrid to destinations like Barcelona and Lisbon, Portugal, on buses provided by airlines. But the vast majority were forced to go home or to hotels with no information on when they might make their canceled flights. Some slept in the airports.

“It’s a disgrace, how can a group of people be so selfish as to wreck the plans of so many people?” said dentist Marcela Vega, 35, unable to travel from Madrid to Chile with her husband, 5-year-old son and baby boy.

Spain’s airport authority, known as Aena, said authorities were in contact with Europe’s air traffic agency,Eurocontrol, and the United State’s FAA about how best to deal with arriving international flights.

Aena chief Juan Ignacio Lema called the sickout “intolerable” and warned controllers to return to work, or face disciplinary action or criminal charges.

“We’re asking the controllers to stop blackmailing the Spanish people,” Lema said.

Spain’s air traffic controllers have been in bitter negotiations for a year with state-owned Aena over wages, working conditions and privileges. The dispute intensified in February after the government restricted overtime, cutting the average annual pay of controllers from about euro350,000 ($463,610) to around euro200,000 ($264,920).

The sickout also closed four airports in the Canary islands off Africa’s coast, a favorite winter destination for sun-seeking Europeans, and airports in prime Mediterranean tourism spots of Ibiza, Palma de Mallorca and Menorca.

Spanish Development Minister Jose Blanco convened an emergency meeting and his ministry announced that “controllers have begun to communicate their incapacity to continue offering their services, abandoning their places of work.” Blanco later told reporters that authorities were forced to close airspace around Madrid for safety reasons.

“We won’t permit this blackmail that they are using to turn citizens into hostages,” Blanco said

The controllers’ union has complained for weeks that many members have already worked their maximum hours for all of 2010, and that all 2,000 are overworked and understaffed. Friday’s sickout was not expected, but the union had warned it could mount one over the Christmas holiday. Spanish air traffic controllers are prohibited by law from going on strike.

Aena said most controllers had left their workstations or never showed up, and that only 10 controllers remained on duty in Madrid to handle emergencies.

Some controllers began to return to work late Friday, including about half of the normal staff in Barcelona, where several flights took off by early Saturday. But Rubalcaba said the number of returning controllers was spotty, and that some who showed up refused to perform their duties.

Madrid’s sprawling Barajas airport was empty after midnight. It had 1,300 flights scheduled for Friday, but it wasn’t clear how many had taken off and landed before the sickout.

More than 5,000 flights were scheduled for the nation Friday, and about 3,000 departed or landed before the sickout began in the late afternoon.

Monday is a national holiday marking the Day of the Spanish Constitution, and Wednesday is a religious holiday. Many Spaniards take advantage of them for a five-day weekend or a week of vacation, and about 4 million people had flights booked for the period in the nation of 46 million.

Many of Spain’s famed football players were forced to head on trains and buses with their teams so they could make it to weekend games.

WikiLeaks fights to stay online amid attacks

By RAPHAEL G. SATTER and PETER SVENSSON, Associated Press 1 hr 6 mins ago

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20101204/ap_on_bi_ge/wikileaks

The Internet homepage of Wikileaks is shown in ...

AP – The Internet homepage of Wikileaks is shown in this photo taken in New York, Wednesday, Dec. 1, 2010

LONDON – WikiLeaks became an Internet vagabond Friday, moving from one website to another as governments and hackers hounded the organization, trying to deprive it of a direct line to the public.

The organization that has embarrassed Washington and foreign leaders by releasing a cache of secret — and brutally frank — U.S. diplomatic cables found a new home after an American company stopped directing traffic to wikileaks.org. Then French officials moved to oust it from its new site.

By late Friday, WikiLeaks was up in at least three new places.

“The first serious infowar is now engaged. The field of battle is WikiLeaks. You are the troops,” tweeted John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the online free-speech group Electronic Frontier Foundation. His message was reposted by WikiLeaks to its 300,000-odd followers.

Legal pressure increased on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange after Swedish authorities revised a warrant for his arrest in response to procedural questions from British officials.

British law enforcement authorities have refused to say if or when Assange would be arrested. His lawyers have said they believe they would be notified of any move to arrest him but had yet to be served with a warrant as of Friday afternoon.

The 39-year-old Australian is wanted on allegations of rape and other sex crimes that emerged after a trip to Sweden in August.

Assange said that his arrest would do nothing to halt the flow of American diplomatic cables being released by his group and newspapers in several countries, and he threatened to escalate the rush of information if he is taken into custody.

Hundreds of cables have been published by WikiLeaks and several newspapers in recent days. Assange said that all of the cables had already been distributed in a heavily encrypted form to tens of thousands of people.

If something happens to him, he suggested, the password needed to decrypt the data will be released and all the secrets will go out at once.

“History will win,” Assange said in a Web chat with readers of The Guardian newspaper, one of the mediaorganizations helping to coordinate the documents’ publication. “The world will be elevated to a better place. Will we survive? That depends on you.”

WikiLeaks doesn’t depend entirely on its website for disseminating secret documents; if it were knocked off the Web, the nationless organization could continue to communicate directly with news organizations. But the site provides a direct line to the public, fulfilling the organization’s stated goal of maximum distribution for the secret documents it receives from mainly anonymous contributors.

In an online chat with readers of The Guardian, Assange promised to improve the availability of the website as soon as possible.

“Rest assured I am deeply unhappy that the 3 1/2 years of my work and others is not easily available or searchable by the general public,” Assange said.

EveryDNS — a company based in Manchester, New Hampshire, that had been directing traffic to the website wikileaks.org — stopped doing so late Thursday after cyber attacks threatened the rest of its network. WikiLeaks responded by moving to a Swiss domain name, wikileaks.ch — and calling on activists for support.

The loss of support from EveryDNS just a minor annoyance because the site can leap from one name to the next, said Fraser Howard, a researcher with Internet security firm Sophos.

“The whack-a-mole analogy is fairly good,” he said.

The Swiss address directs traffic to servers in France, where Industry Minister Eric Besson called it unacceptable to host a site that “violates the secret of diplomatic relations and puts people protected by diplomatic secret in danger.”

The general manager of French web hosting company OVH, Octave Klaba, confirmed that it had been hosting WikiLeaks since early Thursday, after a client asked for a “dedicated server with … protection against attacks.”

He said the company has asked a judge to decide on the legality of hosting the site on French soil.

“It is not up to the political realm or to OVH to request or decide the closure of a site, but rather up to the courts,” Klaba said.

WikiLeaks has been brought down numerous times this week by what appear to be denial-of-service attacks. In a typical such attack, remote computers commandeered by rogue programs bombard a website with so many data packets that it becomes overwhelmed and unavailable to visitors. Pinpointing the culprits is difficult. The attacks are relatively easy to mount and can be performed by amateurs.

The attacks started Sunday, just before WikiLeaks released the diplomatic cables. To deal with the flood of traffic, WikiLeaks moved to Amazon.com’s Web hosting facility, which has vast numbers of servers that can be rented as needed to meet surges.

But Amazon booted WikiLeaks from the site on Wednesday after U.S. congressional staffers started asking the company about its relationship to WikiLeaks. Amazon said it ousted the organization in part because the leaks could endanger innocent people.

The U.S. is conducting a criminal investigation into WikiLeaks’ release of the diplomatic cables. Attorney General Eric Holder said this week that the leaks jeopardized national security, diplomatic efforts and U.S. relationships around the world.

In Washington, the lawmaker expected to take over the House Judiciary Committee in January, Republican Rep. Lamar Smith of Texas, said he plans to conduct hearings on the matter.

Republican Sen. John Ensign of Nevada introduced a bill to amend the U.S. Espionage Act that would give prosecutors more flexibility to pursue a criminal case against Assange and his organization. But there was little chance of passing a new law in the remaining weeks of the congressional session.

Assange also risks legal action in his homeland, where Australia said it would detain Assange if possible in response to the warrant filed in the Swedish case by Interpol.

Wikileaks.ch, is owned by the Swiss Pirate Party, formed two years ago to campaign for freedom of information. Its officials said they gave Assange information on how to seek asylum in Switzerland.

China knows less about NKorea than thought

Posted by Admin on November 30, 2010

Logo used by Wikileaks

BEIJINGChina knows less about and has less influence over its close ally North Korea than is usually presumed and is likely to eventually accept a reunified peninsula under South Korean rule, according to U.S. diplomatic files leaked to the WikiLeaks website.

The memos — called cables, though they were mostly encrypted e-mails — paint a picture of three countries struggling to understand an isolated, hard-line regime in the face of a dearth of information and indicate American and South Korean diplomats’ reliance on China’s analysis and interpretation.

The release of the documents, which included discussions of contingency plans for the regime’s collapse and speculation about when that might come, follows new tensions in the region. North Korea unleashed a fiery artillery barrage on a South Korean island that killed four people a week ago and has since warned that joint U.S.-South Korean naval drills this week are pushing the peninsula to the “brink of war.”

The shelling comes on the heels of a slew of other provocative acts: An illegal nuclear test and several missile tests, the torpedoing of a SouthKorean warship and, most recently, an announcement that in addition to its plutonium program, it may also be pursuing the uranium path to a nuclear bomb.

The memos give a window into a period prior to the latest tensions, but they paint a picture of three countries struggling to understand isolated and unpredictable North Korea.

In the cables, China sometimes seems unaware of or uncertain about issues ranging from who will succeed North Korean leader Kim Jong Il to the regime’s uranium enrichment plans and its nuclear test, suggesting that the North plays its cards close to its chest even with its most important ally.

Questioned about the enriched uranium program in June last year, Chinese officials said they believed that was program was “only in an initial phase” — a characterization that now appears to have been a gross underestimate.

China is Pyongyang’s closest ally — Beijing fought on the northern side of the Korean War and its aid props up the current regime — and its actions have often served to insulate North Korea from foreign pressure. It has repeatedly opposed harsh economic sanctions and responded to the latest crises by repeating calls for a return to long-stalled, six-nation denuclearization talks that the North has rejected.

But China would appear to have little ability to stop a collapse and less influence over the authorities in Pyongyang than is widely believed, South Korea’s then-vice foreign minister, Chun Yung-woo, is quoted telling American Ambassador Kathleen Stephens in February.

China lacks the will to push Pyongyang to change its behavior, according to Chun, but Beijing will not necessarily oppose the U.S. and South Korea in the case of a North Korean collapse.

China “would be comfortable with a reunified Korea controlled by Seoul and anchored to the US in a ‘benign alliance’ as long as Korea was not hostile towards China,” Chun said.

Economic opportunities in a reunified Korea could further induce Chinese acquiescence, he said.

The diplomatic cables warn, however, that China would not accept the presence of U.S. troops north of the demilitarized zone that currently forms the North-South border.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said China would not comment specifically on the cables.

“China consistently supports dialogue between the North and South sides of the Korean peninsula to improve their relations,” Hong said at a regularly scheduled news conference.

In the leaked cable, Chun predicts the government in Pyongyang would last no more than three years following the death of ailing leader Kim Jong Il, who is seeking to transfer power to his youngest son Kim JongUn, a political ingenue in his 20s.

Chun also dismisses the possibility of Chinese military intervention if North Korea descended into chaos.

Despite that, China is preparing to handle any outbreaks of unrest along the border that could follow a collapse of the regime. Chinese officials say they could deal with up to 300,000 refugees, but might have to seal the border to maintain order, the memos say, citing an unidentified representative of an international aid group.

Chinese officials are also quoted using mocking language in reference to North Korea, pointing to tensions between the two neighbors in contrast to official statements underscoring strong historical ties.

Then-Deputy Foreign Minister He Yafei is quoted as telling a U.S. official in April 2009 that Pyongyang was acting like a “spoiled child” by staging a missile test in an attempt to achieve its demand of bilateral talks with Washington.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday that WikiLeaks acted illegally in posting the leaked documents. Officials around the world have said the disclosure jeopardizes national security, diplomats, intelligence assets and relationships between foreign governments.

Five international media organizations, including The New York Times and Britain’s Guardian newspaper, were among those to receive the documents in advance. WikiLeaks is also slowly posting all the material on its own site.

US briefs allies about next WikiLeaks release

Julian Assange, WikiLeaks, at New Media Days 09

Julian Assange Founder - WikiLeaks

By JILL LAWLESS, Associated Press – 2 hrs 46 mins ago

LONDON – U.S. allies around the world have been briefed by American diplomats about an expected release of classified U.S. files by the WikiLeaks website that is likely to cause international embarrassment and could damage some nations’ relations with the United States.

The release of hundreds of thousands of State Department cables is expected this weekend, although WikiLeaks has not been specific about the timing. The cables are thought to include private, candid assessments of foreign leaders and governments and could erode trust in the U.S. as a diplomatic partner.

In Britain, Prime Minister David Cameron‘s spokesman, Steve Field, said Friday that the government had been told of “the likely content of these leaks” by U.S. Ambassador Louis Susman. Field declined to say what Britain had been warned to expect.

“I don’t want to speculate about precisely what is going to be leaked before it is leaked,” Field said.

In Washington, State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said U.S. diplomats were continuing the process of warning governments around the world about what might be in the documents. Many fear the cables will embarrass the United States and its allies, and reveal sensitive details of how the U.S. conducts relations with other countries.

“We are all bracing for what may be coming and condemn WikiLeaks for the release of classified material,” he said. “It will place lives and interests at risk. It is irresponsible.”

The Obama administration on Friday warned that the WikiLeaksrelease would endanger “lives and interests.”

Italy’s foreign minister, Franco Frattini, said he spoke Friday with the U.S. State Department, which told him that there would be documents regarding Italy in the leak, “but the content can’t be anticipated.”

“We’re talking about thousands and thousands of classified documents that the U.S. will not comment on, as is their custom,” Frattini said.

The governments of Canada and Norway also said they had been briefed by U.S. officials. Israel’s Foreign Ministry declined to comment on a report that it, too, had been informed.

In Iraq, U.S. Ambassador James F. Jeffrey told reporters that the leaks represent a serious obstacle to international diplomacy.

“We are worried about additional documents coming out,” he said. “WikiLeaks are an absolutely awful impediment to my business, which is to be able to have discussions in confidence with people. I do not understand the motivation for releasing these documents. They will not help, they will simply hurt our ability to do our work here.”

In Norway, U.S. officials released a statement from the ambassador to the newspaper Dagbladet with the understanding that it would not be published until after the WikiLeaks material came out, but the newspaper published the material ahead of time.

It quoted U.S. Ambassador to Norway Barry White saying that, while he could not vouch for the authenticity of the documents, he expected them to contain U.S. officials’ candid assessments of political leaders and political movements in other countries. He said diplomats had to be able to have private, honest discussions to do their jobs.

The Obama administration said earlier this week that it had alerted Congress and begun notifying foreign governments that the whistle-blowing website is preparing to release a huge cache of diplomatic cables whose publication could give a behind-the-scenes look at American diplomacy around the world.

“These revelations are harmful to the United States and our interests,” U.S. State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said. “They are going to create tension in relationships between our diplomats and our friends around the world.”

Diplomatic cables are internal documents that would include a range of secret communications between U.S. diplomatic outposts and State Department headquarters in Washington.

WikiLeaks has said the release will be seven times the size of its October leak of 400,000 Iraq war documents, already the biggest leak in U.S. intelligence history.

The U.S. says it has known for some time that WikiLeaks held the diplomatic cables. No one has been charged with passing them to the website, but suspicion focuses on U.S. Army Pfc. Bradley Manning, an intelligence analyst arrested in Iraq in June and charged over an earlier leak.

Frattini, the Italian foreign minister, said Friday that he had been “told that the person responsible for this leak has been arrested.” The Italian Foreign Ministry later said Frattini was talking about Manning.

WikiLeaks, which also has released secret U.S. documents about the war in Afghanistan, was founded byJulian Assange.

The Australian former computer hacker is currently wanted by Sweden for questioning in a drawn-out rape probe. Assange, 39, is suspected of rape, sexual molestation and unlawful coercion. He has denied the allegations, which stem from his encounters with two women during a visit to Sweden.

Mankind’s SOUL EVALUATIONS Between Lives

Posted by Admin on October 4, 2010

http://www.bluestarspeaks.com/bluestar4.html

8-25-10 to 10-25-10

NOTE: Blue Star wishes to include a special message for all people. This message is to remain on the website for the entire year of 2010.

*People of all nations, please listen to what I have to say: this year of 2010 is a year that will never be forgotten. Those who are progressing on their own path of Spiritual evolution at their own pace, will be facing many trials and tribulations FOR A WHILE this year. You are each here on the Earth Star planet for more than 1 reason; all you really need to know about that is that this is the year you all trained for. 2010 is a year to live courageously! All that you know and all that you think you know is being put to the test. How you each handle these tests will be your own measure of greatness, your own meter of your strengths and weaknesses. We will all continue watching over you as will those of the Spirit world. We will aid all those we can. Those who refuse to change, well, their future is now written in stone. The answer to “11-11” is IN “2011.”

Now, the issue here is leaving the physical vehicle and the beginning of the journey into the ethereal realms. There does NOT exist any singular mode which is appropriate for all Souls to use. In one sense, all variables have been encountered in the lifetime just experienced by ANY Soul. Yet in another sense, each Soul in the moment of transfiguration is fully cognizant that what they are experiencing is the culmination of all their efforts. While this concerns the Souls who are leaving the planet “Earth Star,” there is a different slower process which the Soul uses in order to transcend the density of the atmosphere. Some Souls experience a heaviness surrounding them; this is oftentimes accompanied by a gray hue. Others experience a “leaping” sensation, or a feeling of movement in a rather spastic fashion. Much of this can be attributed to the leaving of the former timelines as well as the alteration of the atmospheric conditions. It is at this point that similarities occur. It should be duly noted that for many of these ones, they are sharing a certain “state” of awareness that is “unawareness.“ For a while they do not know that a time of transformation has begun. The duration of this “Holy State” varies for each Soul. Throughout this particular energetic exchange many Souls are in a state of flux regarding their whereabouts.

Just as the eyes have sight or non-sight, so does the Soul during this time. These Beings are in a metamorphosis of sorts; it is a critical state where the Soul must reassure Itself of which plane it has entered. Memory naturally accompanies each one to a certain degree; ergo there is a subtle transition which is taking place. In linear time over the past centuries, mankind has often relied upon memory as a safeguard when making important decisions, particularly when these decisions involve pivotal changes in life directions BASED upon previous, but PRESENT, life experience. Thus the memory can be either an asset or a liability. Those who have formed a co-dependency on left-brain memories carry this trait with them as they “pass over.” The Soul allocates time for the entity to separate analytical, ego-based memory from Soul memory. Those whose lives have been centered on their intuitive Self, their Soul Self throughout their life experience, continue in this manner during the Sacred Transition period. For the latter, their Soul memories are intact and thus supersede all previous memory. None arrive in different dimensions totally “alone.” Each is accompanied by certain dominant Spirits whose purpose is to ease, comfort and assure each of the “incoming” of his or her own immortality. There exist numerous ways in which any Soul may choose to conduct Its exit from the Earth Star planet. We will not at this time begin any discussion regarding those who become entangled between planes.

Regardless of which tool, which method, an entity chooses as its arrival “ticket” from the Earthbound world, a certain shock affects most Souls as this final “cutting away” of all which they have far so long been familiar with is experienced. This is referred to as “cosmic shock.” It is quite normal. The sensations associated with this state range from bewilderment to a type of knowing, to ecstasy. The Spirits accompanying each Soul assume a form of one whom the departing Soul shares a deep affinity with. It matters not if it is an image of a loved one who had passed over long ago, or if they see and hear and Spiritually embrace one they perceive to be a beloved “Saint” or Spirit Guide. All do sense a deep quiet which envelops them and unconditionally wraps them in the purest energy of love they have ever known.

It is as their sense of shock dissipates, as each one becomes fully aware of ethereal music, that they slowly begin the journey of Self-discovery. This is NOT music as you know of here on the Earth Star. These are pods of energy emanating from all higher dimensions and coalescing as an exquisite blending of harmonic sound and energy-motes. This is Soul music; it is a cornucopia of each and every Soul who has ever been. All who have gained success in their quest far ONENESS has embellished their fragments of SELF in this sphere. Each speck is unique. Thus when awakening here, one feels and hears a “melodic” sound that enhances the depth of purity within the Soul. This is an uplifting experience which must be brought into manifestation; it cannot otherwise be explained nor truly understood by those in the gross density known here on Earth for so long as, “the third-dimension.” Souls who have not accomplished what they needed to, possess a note of a totally different resonance. It is in no way “bad,” since “bad” does not exist in this transfiguration process. The note is instead muted; not harsh, simply undistinguishable among other notes. These Souls whose lives were based upon self-deprecation, lower based value systems and the fears and misunderstandings about “going within,” are not in any way evil. Therefore their note is not discordant, but VERY muted.

Those Souls who are sorely tainted by grievous malefic errors of judgment which they have KNOWINGLY committed, also have a note. Now, description here is difficult .. however it is sufficient to state that their notes perfectly match these Beings’ true natures. For this latter group .. their note is heard not here, in the place of THE SACRED ONE, but it is heard in “The Valley of The Screaming Souls.” There exists NO valid justification for those who are just to suffer the music of the unjust. Although all Souls enter this plane of transfiguration and relocation, yet here also is where the great separation which began on the Earth Star continues. It is still an aspect of the separation of the “wheat” from the “chaff.” Those who have earned the privilege of quietude will indeed now enjoy it. This journey of the Souls whose “past” are still very much a part of them becomes as interesting for us to observe, as it is for them to experience. How each interacts with their Guardian Spirits at this juncture is quite pertinent to the belief systems which they held while in the third-dimension. It is during the period of cosmic shock, when most experience their emotions running rampant, that the awareness of their altered environment and the slowly dawning realization of the ethereal chambers they now reside in, causes each to “remember” that which they had “forgotten.” The music which they hear is accompanied by magnificent prisms of multicolored lights and a variety of radiant Spirit Beings.

Now, as all this data is being assimilated, a fusion of Spiritual feelings with the Soul’s innate awareness of all true realities, are being transmitted to each of the “new residents” from the Beings who are of the Angelic realms. These “feelings” which we speak of are not ones you can experience here on Earth. They are in fact an intense blending of alchemical energies progressively becoming stronger as each Soul reaches out to a similar vibratory source. This is a “breakthrough” which results in a state of peacefulness, a serenity of Spirit that encompasses each of these Souls. Thus the time of relinquishing fear caused by the temporary sense of disorientation begins to take place. At times, this particular period can be very amusing. Those who are now aware that they have in fact entered a higher dimension, “act out” in quite unusual manner with EXTREMELY varied expectations. It should also be noted that all Souls upon arriving at this plane, see themselves as still wearing human forms. In actual fact, the physical vehicle ceased to be. However, BECAUSE these ones THINK they are still a part of such, they SEE themselves encased in human form.

Those who have passed over in violent manner, do NOT carry the physical scars upon them. That would only instill fear within them and terror which would be non-productive. There do exist many Souls who had been rigid “hard liners,” within orthodox religions. These ones maintained a steadfast fixation regarding their arrival here and their “reception.” Some actually look for St. Peter and the “pearly gates.” Others fully expect to see Angels WITH WINGS. The most staunchly inflexible ones insist on looking for a “wrathful GOD,” complete with flaming sword, smoting the unrighteous and welcoming the righteous into HIS fold. This perspective is all quite fanciful and totally unrealistic. So, for this group in particular, a part of the cosmic shock reverberates through these ones as the failure of their ideas of truth found in the third-dimensional REALITY is peeled away, layer upon layer, revealing the Universal truths. If any of you here are expecting trumpets and fanfare, or to be congratulated for all which YOU have perceived to be a “righteous” life led, then YOU TOO are in for a rude awakening.

“A LIFE WELL LIVED, REWARDS ITSELF, CONGRATULATES ITSELF, HONORS ITSELF.” Nothing else is needed. On the plane of receivership, the Law states that THIS is the type of life expected to be lived, this is the norm. Now, as some Souls• struggle with the “bottoming out.” sensation, others who have led an exemplary life with the focus on nurturing and advancing their Souls, radiate an inner realization that most of what they are now experiencing is as they had felt that it would be. These are the ones whose Spirits begin to soar. Oneness for these Souls is much simpler to achieve. Those who have been “neutral” in their Earth life lessons, those whose paths must intermingle many more times on the Earth plane, or on another planet of similar low density, usually are the quietest. They do indeed perfectly match their notes. They emit both awe and fear. These ones still have much to learn. Those who are dark Souls, NOT in color, but in TONE, are segregated from the pure Souls until such time that preparations are completed for them to leave en masse to their “Valley.” These Souls have placed themselves in a perilous position indeed. They have made their choice not to choose. Thus the die has been cast. Now, it is of great importance that much clarity becomes the focus on this wondrous occasion. You ones on the Earth Star should be aware that all these Souls are in groups of their own kind, protected and still accompanied by many forms of Light Beings.

Some of these stewards’ responsibilities are in projecting love energy and unlimited understanding into the confusion still present among some of the Souls. Others of these Guardians speak telepathically and describe the next plane which awaits each Soul. Yet still others exist as pure, luminous Light which acts as a beacon to these ones. At this point while these personalities still believe that they have a body, they unwittingly “talk” to their Guides in human tongue. It always comes as a surprise to these Souls when they finally realize that their Spirit Guides have been speaking to them through a process of mind-thought. The new Souls, once they have arrived at this understanding, then make no further attempt to verbalize. Rather, they “speak” in like-fashion. This heralds the beginning of the acceptance of their new REALITY. It is in this timeframe, when the ego is slowly fading with its “mind memory,” that another hurdle is encountered. The complexity here lies in “what” these Souls had been believing was reality and “what” the true nature of the situation really was. It is here in this myriad emotional arena that each Soul who still believed that he or she still retained the physical vehicle, takes notice that the illusion of the physical shell begins to alter itself. A quite visible dissipation has now begun. The human body, as they know it, slowly begins to fade until a point of total transparency is achieved. Throughout this period, each Soul may watch either themselves or any of the others who are with them, as each continues through this altered-state process.

This process is aligned with pertinent knowledge being imparted to each of these Souls through their Guides, regarding the necessity of this action. The Kosmonic part of the Soul “seals” off the areas relative to the former third-dimensional illusional reality and releases past knowledge which contains a soporiferous essence emitting inner peace and acceptance. Now, some few who witness the disappearance of all which is no longer a feasible part of their reality do indeed make futile attempts to force the outer body housing to continue to exist. They do not prevail. These ones too, through the process of their Guides encouraging them to understand all which is occurring, soon realize that what had been before is now relegated to the Kosmonic past. Now, all of the Guides present do indeed exhibit endless patience with these newly-arrived Souls. Many of these highly evolved Beings who are the “caretakers and caregivers,” had at one time enjoyed a life experience on the Earth Star. Some may have Created only one excursion here to the Earth while others enjoyed many sojourns in human guise. Remember however, this is not true of all those who dwell on the higher planes of “duality,” known as androgyny-yet being of ONENESS. So it is that on this level, this plateau of transformation, these Spirit Souls who once walked among you and are now assisting those who are the “incoming,” retain the ability to empathize with ALL their brethren.

In this manner they project a pure stream of love-based unification essence towards these ones. The Universe leaves nothing to chance during this important and pivotal Soul transition. Now, as part of the Kosmonic chamber closes itself, another chamber opens. This is a segment of the “new present,” yet it is the future as well. This chamber deals with the innate wisdom of Spirit evolution vs. free expression. All CURRENT paths which may be followed and all of the probability factors which have been calculated for an individual’s success are revealed. Only when a Soul has left this receivership sphere and established residence on another “thought plane,” does the clarity of the revelations issue forth. This is indeed the next upward step on their climb to their own immortality. Thus it is that the LAW exists NOW as it always HAS; the Universe permits no discrepancies, NO interruptions in this slow process towards the ultimate Spiritual freedom. The totality of the unification of SELF with the God of this Universe and with the Creator is recognized as an ultimate goal. So, as the illusion of the physical vehicle is dissipated, a Soul then is revealed in its true reality. Each has been transformed into its own natural state; each is a beam of Light. Those Souls who had possessed a need to identify a Spirit Guide as one to whom they were related while on Earth and those who had imagined they were seeing an image of a “favorite saint,” see instead their Guide’s TRUE FORM. All the “newly” arrived now KNOW the totality of Universal truth. All religious dogma previously adhered to which had been in direct opposition and totally without merit regarding the CREATOR’S TRUE NATURE, as well as the Laws of the Universe, are discarded.

No words in ANY language are required to accomplish this; it is simply KNOWN! It is when the KNOWN is experienced that the KNOWING begins. Now, those Souls who were previously part of a priesthood, or of other orthodox religious ministries and orders, will always be the ones who will feel and experience the deepest sense of shock. This too will pass. It must be remembered that a large number of Souls who entered into the various religious cults did so for the express purpose of helping others as well as for their own perceived need of locating a suitable vehicle for their own “atonement.” So it was that what they felt were shortcomings in their own lives, they adequately supplanted by performing what they felt that GOD DICTATED-TO SAVE OTHER SOULS FROM HELL AND DAMNATION. The fact that they were wrong did not occur to many of these ones during their Earthly times. These ones need feel no remorse of that which they had been part of during their life expression. Rather, it would be of far greater impact to these Souls to simply acknowledge that they had in fact done all that they could; if the reality is that they TRULY had. Now. a commonality shared by the new arrivals is a tendency to seek out God. Although each feels His CONSTANT presence, there is a subtle current of energy flowing among them which is in fact an intense desire to “see” Him. This period of indescribable longing passes for most as they become one with the peace which surrounds them. Even the lesser evolved Souls are CONSTANTLY expecting HIS arrival. As each Soul attains a deeper understanding of the new freedom from all mortal bonds, it is then that each must prepare to undergo the final part of a cleansing process; and that is their final farewells.

For those Souls who are more evolved very little is required now; these ones are fully aware that those they had been with on the Earth plane will once again be reunited with them at a different “time.” These are the ones who feel no regrets about all which has so recently transpired. They rightly perceive all that has gone before them as but a continuation of all which will come to pass.. AGAIN. This is the ultimate understanding which can be attained at this point. Some who had designated themselves to be “caretakers” in the life experience they recently left, are quite loath to make the final break. These ones function best when shown that they need not feel dismayed about their loved ones’ abilities to exist. These recently departed Souls are allowed to descend among the Earthbound Souls. SOME ARE WHILE SOME ARE NOT. It is clearly understood that the descending Souls are permitted to observe the reactions and emotions of the beloved ones on Earth for only a brief second in time. Their Guardian Spirits accompany them and provide a protective shield around each. This is necessary when entering a lower realm of observance. Those who are the recently departed are encouraged to simply view the people, not to make any overt attempts to attract attention as this could prove to be detrimental to those still existing in lower based frequencies. The descending Souls have been made aware that the unconscious mind easily tunes into the presence of Spirits. If this anomaly occurs before one has adjusted to another’s passing over, it could indeed cause the Earthling undue distress. Humans must first adjust to their own feelings of grief and loss before they can maintain an ease with other world presences. Many still leading mortal lives falsely believe that when being visited by an entity of the Spirit world, it is due to that anima’s unhappiness of the life relinquished. There are of course exceptions. There are those on the Earth Star who are consciously aware that there truly exists no real loss of life. Life is but an experience. All is predetermined by the extent to which a personality has been conditioned, or brainwashed, by the NOW former third-dimensional reality. It has been duly noted in our archives that nearly all who require a prolonged type of farewell after passing over do thereafter achieve a measure of contentment in regard to the state of mind of those they left behind.

So, as there is a CONSTANT influx of Souls arriving, there exists an equal balance of many Souls’ exodus to the next plane. Each must leave the present plane at a different time in accordance with their ability to move onward to specific lessons still awaiting each one. Each Soul is informed at the proper time that it is TIME. This can also occur when nearly all have expressed their willingness and desire to continue onward and upward bound. Those few who are still not ready may continue to remain here on this plane a while longer. So, the journey to the next dimension now begins in earnest. This next level is one of a completely different vibration. Here, one exists for a given period of time in a form of “suspended animation.” We are referring to the mobility of the Spirit form to move from place to place, NOT that there exists any inability for the Soul to function. All new arrivals and those who accompany them are aware of all that will transpire in this realm. This place is one of solitude; one of introspection and contemplation of all that has been achieved or not achieved until now. So, each is greeted by a Being who is the caretaker of the realm. This Soul is a benevolent entity whose responsibilities lie in simply “being as one” with each “new” Soul. As each of these Souls enters into this state of becoming quiet within, each is much aware of the presence of God. HE does not need to arrive there, for HE is already an integrated part of this realm; God is experienced as the quiet, the aloneness, the state achieved when each of these ones feel utter contentment within themselves. As each of their “companion Guides” prepare to once again return to their “home” realm, they leave a particle of themselves, an energy form which is a mirror image of themselves, with their beloved brethren. Thus an umbilical cord once again exists between them; one which shall not, cannot, be severed in the higher dimensions of GOD I AM.

The exalted entity, the caretaker who oversees this entrance way to present and future, emits much strong, positive energy currents as an inducement or reassurance, that each Soul is making strides in his or her quest for Soul perfection. He has the knowledge of the conditions most conducive for each one’s ongoing state of peace; he then proceeds to Create the requisite mood for each Soul. It had been decreed long ago as part of the Universal Divine Plan, that each Soul should enjoy a particular atmosphere reminiscent of their home planet during this incubation period. So it is that while each attunes to the Kosmonic Self, each finds his environment to be the one in which he or she had experienced their Creation. Those whose origins are of, let us just make up a name here, the Xodian planet, find themselves apparently returned there while in this state. Those of other orbs and galaxies also see themselves as “having returned home.” In a sense, they have. Their perspective of reality is such that while experiencing the facsimile of “being home,” they totally immerse themselves in intense Soul study. There exists nothing to disturb them. They neither want nor require anything while in this state. This is their time of reflection and recollection. All are able now to redevelop the trait long forgotten .. of standing outside themselves and hearing all important events which had transpired in their most recent past.

This is a time of non-judgmental evaluation on their part concerning “right” or “wrong” actions which they had previously undertaken. The Kosmonic door of the present has now fully opened into this “new” dimension. Here in this “new” area had been stored only the most pertinent memories as the door to the past had closed. These memories are used for a Soul’s edification and now FINALLY are viewed as such. No sense or state of Self-condemnation exists during this process, none is needed. These Souls have begun once again, as they had during previous transitions in the between-lives phases, to cherish each “obstacle” and to thank themselves for each one overcome. They feel no sense of loss when a challenge which needed to be met had not been overcome to their satisfaction. They have once again arrived at the realization that each issue represents an exciting stage of their evolution. These ones know they shall experience this again and again and in the end be victorious. This is but one of many reasons why the “state of solitude” is not only necessary, but one which many long for. All are most appreciative of this time to be ALONE. This is their JUDGEMENT DAY! It is not necessary for them to suffer as they review their pasts. That would be an irrational act. The Creator and the Creation do nothing which is irrational so then why, on this extraordinary day, should His Issue act in any fashion which would be in direct opposition to HIM? Now, this period of re-education supersedes all of the prior incarnations. The most recent life experience is the one which is dealt with. It would be unfruitful for too many memories to intrude at this point. The probability exists that should this occur, it would cause a scattering of power which would require an excessive amount of energy to be exerted in an attempt to perfect all past lives at one time.

The ramifications of this type of situation could ultimately affect the entire planet. You would do well to remember, as has been previously explained, the past has already Created the present; the future has already been Created by and in the present. Therefore, if even only one Soul was permitted to travel through time in a reverse process, while retaining the full conscious knowledge of their errors of judgment, the outcome of the actions they would undertake, as well as the effect it would have upon others, would be quite devastating! HISTORY WOULD BE REWRITTEN! This would in actuality be manipulation with the intent being Soul perfection. The end result would be … NO lessons having been learned. None would earn their laurels. All would have forgotten THE KEY. So, during this introspective state each is free to now acknowledge what it is that they have or have not learned and to decide at this time the most appropriate manner in which to redeem themselves, in their own eyes. The Kosmonic reveals various strategic methods which each Soul may endow themselves with Spiritually while pursuing a contented physical life as well. When we speak of these methods which the Kosmonic shares with its inner Self, no specific information will be shared with you, the readers. This is the most Sacred of times, the ultimate sharing of the Soul with its Self. This is a privilege which is bestowed by God upon an entity as part of HIS reward to all those whose who are willing to listen, as well as those whose purity of Spirit earn His benevolence.

Many, but NOT ALL of you, will experience this for yourself in THIS lifetime. Throughout this time of Holy Communion many plans are formulated in regard to the present/future. Each Soul receives such knowledge as needed to foresee which life experience would be most suited for them. Each then projects a fragment of themselves into future dimensions and begins to Create a blueprint of the physical existence that would most enhance the Soul’s growth. Many variables are taken into consideration. All probability factors are computed for the best ratio of success. Each evaluates his/her perceived weaknesses, weighing the probable success or failure of overcoming such. Many now ardently seek advice from their Guides and teachers. Each of those elevated ones share their wisdom with their Guardian child. Thus it will come to pass that the individual Soul will select certain Spirit Guides, as well as a Master Teacher Guide, for their future incarnate period. It is known by all that at NO time will any of the Guides force an entity to “do” or not to “do” something. This is NOT permitted. Many vows which cannot be broken are indeed Created here. Each evolved Spirit Being has worked with the Guardian child in selecting the geographic location, the parents to be born to and the specific astrological aspects of life which would best suit them in their new upcoming ADVENTURE. All of the Guardian children are aware now of each possible and probable crossroad which awaits them in their soon-to-be human life. The fragments of themselves which have returned from “future” dimensions contribute much wisdom to these children. The issues here concern the “times,” the people and the places, who may bring them jeopardy or joy. Thus it is in accordance with the Divine Plan that all types of knowledge is shared with them, complete with the full understanding that NOT ALL wisdom will be available to them CONSCIOUSLY, after their descent into matter. It requires the child to LOOK within in order to be successful. So although ALL is shared and NOTHING is hidden, the lessons remain for the child’s own depth of Soul understanding and fortitude which need to be “recalled” at the approach of any and all crossroads. At this time also the vows made between the Soul child and the Soul Guide now becomes part of the “triad.” As each is now aware of all to come and the choices which will be set before each one, another plan between Guide and child is made. Each of the children must establish certain points in their lives where they feel they will require one or more of their Guides to assist them in awakening to their destiny. Some choose to awaken very slowly to their life lessons. A few choose to take quantum leaps. Each step MUST be of equal balance with the individual Soul’s current progress. None must accelerate TOO rapidly.

Those who become impatient with the process of growth will learn to slow themselves down, OR they will BE SLOWED DOWN! Those who choose to take the leaps rather than the slow strides will consciously know the future as well. Preferential treatment does not exist here … ALL are equals. Now, it is further understood and agreed to that the Guides and other teachers will take whatever steps necessary in awakening their child at the appropriate time. There are those who will be able to respond to a simple whisper, this is fine; this is what is desired, for those who will later need to have a cinder block dropped on their heads, this is fine too. As humans engaged in self-depravation are heard to say, “NO PAIN NO GAIN!” The reasons for some extraordinary measures required re-establishing contact between the child and their Guide(s) is quite simple. Many of the children do become enthralled with the Earth plane and all of her beauty. These ones “have become lost in the creation of time.” As each continues to weave their intricate web of the future it is most easy for many to “forget” the purpose of, and in, the present. With the Creation of all pre-planned conditions the Soul is NUDGED to bring forth the conscious knowledge required to attain its goal. So it remains to be seen as the child approaches certain choices, (crossroads), throughout its life span, whether he or she will ask for assistance; will look within to bring forth unhesitatingly the Soul voice and respond to it, or as is more common, react in similar fashion as in a previous time, thus taking many steps backwards as a lack of faith supersedes all else. Regardless of which they choose, NONE ARE WRONG!

The affinity which exists between Guardian child, his Guides and teachers in MOST cases, has been of long duration. The child tends to re-select the same Spirits with whom he has been a part of in many previous existences. Some of these ones had at one time shared many Earthly lives together until one or the other had no further need to experience a life in this dimension. The Master Teachers are those whose evolutionary level is of a higher degree than many of their Spirit Brethren. Thus in times of uncertainty all may call upon the one whose experiences are much vaster. So it is that a Sacred Circle is formed once again between the Guides, teachers and children. The holy principal denoting the relationship between the Spirits and the children is predicated upon “promises made and promises kept.” Each of these entities retain an essence, a part of the other. Each Creates a balance of Spirit which lasts throughout eternity, so to speak. As each is but a part of the whole, so is each an integral active participant in the DANCE OF LIFE. Some are MORE active than others! Now, as each Guardian child has attained satisfaction with the plans devised for their next descent into matter, each is now permitted to withdraw to yet another sphere located in a galaxy devoted to a child’s seclusion. This place exists within a dimension which is non-visible to most among you on the Earth Star. Some realms ARE visible to all Beings, many are not. This particular area can only be accessed by the Guardian child who is awaiting a specific timeframe which is theirs alone. These Souls are of human origins, for the most part, that are in dire need of a place to repose until their time has come. Usually, other species of life whose origins are other than human have their own place of solitude.

During their respite the Kosmonic of the future for the human child unfolds to soon become the “present.” Each Soul now rests and contemplates their upcoming existence. This is their most quiet of times … the lessons have been studied and the “homework” acknowledged; all the plans have been viewed in regard to reward and consequence; all is now in readiness. This dear readers, is part of the Dance of Eternal Life! Once a Soul has left these important planes, the rest, FOR THE MOST PART, is up to the Soul with hopefully, the cooperation of the personality. I hope I have been of assistance to you ones by providing a few bits of information that you may “make the most of,” if that is your desire.

I am signing off for now…….

Salude….Blue Star the Pleiadian

“There is a valley where that which is Spiritual stands on one side
and that which is religious stands on the other side.
In the middle walks the Creator and the Creation.
In time, all shall be as one…I shall meet you there.”

The Art of Jumping Time Lines

Posted by Admin on August 10, 2010

Although it may seem paradoxical to some, your timeline—your life—is only one of many simultaneous possibilities. And it is quite possible, indeed it is your birthright, to alter your timeline and the potentials of your life.

Your culture, for various reasons, has hypnotized you into believing that you are limited to one timeline. In this message we shall endeavor to discuss our understanding of timelines and how you can change them.

Whenever there is an increase of chaotic events, there is a convergence of multiple timelines. Due to the fact that your planet has entered a Chaotic Node and is experiencing ever-increasing levels of chaos, there is also an increase in what we calltime nodes.

Time nodes occur when two or more timelines converge. As a result of their close proximity oscillation effects sometimes occur when the realities of one timeline bleed through, or are psychically perceived by those on a neighboring timeline. Strong timelines can also literally affect the possibilities and/or probabilities of other timelines within a time node. In other words, creative and novel effects often occur within timelines when they enter a time node (proximity to other timelines).

These are evolutionary jumpstarts that hold tremendous possibility for accelerated evolution if you understand how to utilize them. As a result of the volatile nature of events on your planet, there are multiple time nodes emerging. This is a very complicated and complex affair, and we shall endeavor to break it down into its smallest segments, for we believe that this information has vital significance for those of you engaged in the ascension process, and for its sheer survival value. Let us turn our attention to the larger picture first and then to the individual strategies we suggest.

Background

Your planet is poised on the brink of utter transformation. The form of this transformation has multiple expressions, and it is you—the collective—that will affect these outcomes to a greater or lesser degree.

Some of these outcomes, these possibilities, fulfill the prophecies of planetary destruction and purification. Other timelines, other expressions, reveal a different outcome. A sudden unexpected shift in human consciousness could bring theControllers, who have so negatively affected your destiny, to their knees. And there are hundreds of other possible timelines between these two polarities. There are vested interests in your society who wish you to remain hypnotized, which wish for you to continue in the delusion that you are limited to one timeline, one experience of life as they so deem it.

But you have, within your nature, the ability to change timelines and probabilities at the last moment of any event—whether it be personal or collective. We do not say this to be “positive.” We say this as a matter of fact concerning your evolutionary potential. Whether you will collectively reach this potential or not remains to be seen, but the path of an Initiate is to reach upward for the highest potential, regardless of what may or may not be happening around him or her. Thus, in this message we shall discuss what you can do, and how you do it.

From our perspective, your collective destiny is the summation of individual choices that you, as persons, make. This is combined with evolutionary and terrestrial forces that are far beyond your and your fellow humans’ abilities to control. This collection of forces also involves cosmic patterns of energy and intentionality from areas of the cosmos beyond your local solar system, for you are a part of a complex cosmic matrix that is your universe.

If we were to use a metaphor, we would say that you, as humanity, are on a great ocean vessel. But many of you are asleep, and there is someone at the helm directing this vessel that should not be there. For many historical and trans-historical reasons, which we won’t go into here, various beings have commandeered your ship.

But, ah, how the tides are turning. More and more of you are waking up, though some, still half-asleep, stagger across the deck as they watch the tempestuous storm of their world changing before them. The Controllers know that many of you are waking up—too many for their comfort.

It is, indeed, an interesting time to be alive!

The current ecological situation in the Gulf is one example of multiple timelines. In spite of your media’s grand attempt to dismiss the situation, many are sensing how dire the situation is, and indeed, there are complications in the Gulf region that are beneath the surface, both literally and figuratively.

In our previous message we addressed several possible timelines for this event. Which of these possible timelines will unfold into your three-dimensional reality is not written in mud or concrete, but is a changeable event or outcome. In this message we wish to discuss how you, the individual, can jump a timeline into a different destiny at a moment’s notice. This can be extrapolated to your civilization also jumping timelines, but that is a topic for another time.

For the moment we wish to turn our attention to you, the individual human and how you can jump from a disastrous timeline—from an outcome you do not wish—to something more benevolent, life-friendly, and full of evolutionary potential.

For the record, there are technological means to jump timelines, but our information here deals with human consciousness, and how you, through the power of your own awareness and intention, can jump timelines. For this endeavor, you already possess two of the greatest treasures in your very own nature—your sovereign will (to make choices) and your capacity to feel. These two, when combined properly will allow you to jump timelines as you so desire, as co-creators of your reality rather than being mere pawns on a chessboard.

The Fundamental Principle

The fundamental principle, for jumping timelines, involves the coordination of a few significant fields of intentionality.

1) You identify the timeline you wish to move into.

2) You shift your vibrational state to match the timeline.

3) You lock in the vibrational state so it does not waver.

4) You take an action that is an expression of the new timeline.

5) Persevere.

In this fifth stage, you must hold the vibrational state of the new timeline you have chosen, making choices coherent with the new timeline and persevering with this despite sensory information to the contrary.

This last phase of perseverance is important, because your current timeline is an accumulation of your beliefs and intentions. Depending upon the strength of these beliefs and intentions, you may have to accumulate a vast amount of energy in order to overcome the set pattern of your life.

The information we are sharing can be used to address any timeline or expression in your life, down to the most mundane situation. In this message however, we will be addressing this methodology for jumping timelines in regards to the ascension process and how you can move into timelines different than the timeline of the culture you are currently residing in.

This is, for some, a revolutionary idea; but for us it is simply a truth about your nature. You are creator gods and goddesses, and this information we are sharing is simply your birthright. We offer it to you at this time with the anticipation and hope that many of you will jump timelines and tilt the keel of the ship you are upon and take the vessel into safe and prosperous waters.

Enough of the metaphors now, let us get to the nuts and bolts of how you jump timelines.

Ascension

The ascension process, from our perspective, involves the energizing of your second body, your KA, and its elevation in vibration so that it emits more light, eventually becoming the SAHU, the Immortal Energy Body. There are many ways to raise the vibration of one’s KA. Most of your spiritual traditions have their own methods for raising your vibration, unfortunately, many of them are also riddled with dogma, taboos, and quite honestly, interference patterns from thought-forms placed by those who did not and do not desire your freedom, but who profit by your imprisonment.

And, yes, it is sad to say that some of your spiritual traditions—and especially your religions—are insidious traps, and if you are to rise upward in the ascension of your own being, you must separate truth from falsehood. Only you can undertake this task, for it is one of the necessities of mastery. This is a line in the sand of consciousness itself for those who have chosen the ascension of their own being. They become masters of truth and do not step aside from ferreting out falsehood from reality. They are not slaves to dogma. They bow to no one but their own divinity.

From an energetic standpoint, the ascension process begins when your life force, calledSekhem by the ancient Egyptians, begins its ascent up the Djed, or sacred pathway of the chakras. This is ascension in its simplest form. It is the expansion of consciousness and awareness. As your life force enters your higher brain centers and as your KA body becomes energized, you enter another phase of ascension. At this phase, you begin to metabolize light itself. By light we refer to spiritual light, a light that exists in the spiritual realms. This light feeds the KA body and increases its vibration. When the KA body reaches a certain amplitude, or strength of vibration, without wavering, it ignites with a type of etheric fire, turning it into the SAHU, or Immortal Energy Body. This could be viewed as one of the final stages of this particular form of ascension. But what we wish to make very clear is that any movement upward in consciousness and movement of life force up the djed, regardless of the method used, is part of the ascension process.

We wish now to discuss some basic concepts and training strategies that will impart a basic method for jumping timelines. We will then turn our attention to how you can create a new probability for yourself, even in the midst of what appears to be great difficulty. And most importantly, we will explore a significant evolutionary opportunity that exists within your current time node.

One of the first tasks facing you if you are to jump into a different timeline is the transcendence of fear. Most humans fear the unknown, but there is a much more insidious element involved here. The Controllers, those who wish to control your destiny and profit by it, are masters of the projection of fear and they are using vast resources of mind control and hypnosis through the media to convince the masses that there is much to fear. And while there is, quite frankly, some truth to there being reasons for fear, the higher truth is not being revealed.

The higher truth, as we view it, is your capacity to change your reality, your innate ability to use the two treasures of your sovereign will and your capacity to feel as a means to navigate into new timelines. Let us be specific here.

As we mentioned earlier, the type of ascension we are speaking about begins with the simple movement of your life force up the djed, or spine, into your higher brain centers. As this takes place, the energy wheels within your KA body, called chakras, become activated in new ways. This opens windows of new possibilities, and new insights, new forms of inspiration and creativity blossom. But if consciousness is locked into fear, it becomes imprisoned by the lower centers, the impulses for survival, sex, and power.

For various historical and trans-historical reasons, as we alluded to earlier, there has been and continues to be, a collusion to keep humanity locked into the lower centers, to perpetuate fear as a means to control destiny. Thus for any master who chooses the upward path, one of the first hurdles to pass through is the Valley of Fear—the projected thought forms of one’s culture. You must then pass through the portals of limitation that would confine you, to recognize the lies that have been perpetuated, even by some of your most sacred religions.

But let us say that you have the courage and fortitude to undertake such a passage, and let us say, for the sake of example, that the timeline you wish to live in is one of benevolence: loving kindness. Here is how you would do this, remembering that the same principal applies to any timeline you wish to create for yourself.

Preparation and Training

The first step is to identify the timeline you wish to create, that you wish to live in. In this case it is a timeline of loving kindness. The second step is to move into the vibrational state that matches the timeline. In this case, it is the feeling state of loving kindness, so you would, yourself, reside in this state as much as you are capable of. By this we mean you would exhibit loving kindness to others and to yourself.

The third step is locking in the vibrational field, so it does not waver. This is an important aspect of jumping timelines because the old vibrational state has a life of its own. Just because you have chosen to create a new timeline and have stepped into a vibrational state that matches the timeline, is not a guarantee that the timeline will manifest or continue. You must lock the vibrational field in place, for this is what sustains your access to the new timeline.

The first two steps involve your sovereign will. You choose a timeline you want to experience. You choose a vibrational state that matches the timeline. And in the third step—locking in the vibrational state—you use the second treasure of your nature: your capacity to feel.

By feeling the vibrational state you wish to be in, you amplify it; you strengthen it. And if you also include a coherent emotional state such as appreciation or gratitude for the vibrational reality, you will hasten its birth.

This simple act of appreciating, or feeling gratitude, for the new timeline catalyzes its reality in ways that boggle the mind. So it is that the two treasures of your nature are joined together in these three steps. The next step requires your sovereign will again. You must persevere, to hold the vision of the new timeline and the vibrational state, regardless of what your senses are telling you. This is the passage where many fail.

The manifesting of a new timeline into your three-dimensional reality requires accumulated energy. If you persist in holding the vision of the new timeline, with the vibrational field (or feeling of it), along with gratitude for it already existing, you will accumulate energy.

The task here is to be true to your vision while paying attention to what the current reality is showing you. It is not about pretending. It is about facing reality as it presents itself to you while simultaneously holding a higher vision. In other words, you deal with the reality of your life while simultaneously holding the vision of a different life. This is the art.

Using our example, if you desire to create a life with more loving kindness, you would move into that vibrational state by exhibiting loving kindness to others. If you were able to also feel gratitude for this vibrational state, it would accelerate the creation of the new timeline.

In reality, there will be a period when you will recognize that not everyone is capable of loving kindness, nor of receiving it for that matter. Your vision will then be refined by the realities of life, and this maturation of your consciousness will take place naturally, as you deal with the realities of your current timeline along with the emergence of your new timeline.

One result from this way of proceeding is that you will become a master of loving kindness and a master in dealing with those who cannot express such vibrational states. Eventually you will experience a life of more loving kindness, where more people express that quality to you and you to them. And when you encounter someone unable to express this quality, you will be more able to deal with him or her without losing this quality in yourself.

Thus would you seed the new timeline and new reality for yourself.

Let us now return to the collective timeline.

As we said earlier time nodes are juncture points where multiple timelines converge, and you can jump from one to the other if you understand how it is done. We just explained the basic principal as it applies to individual timelines. Now let’s discuss how you can jump to a different timeline than that of any given collective.

As paradoxical as it may seem it is quite possible to live a separate timeline, having a different experience of life than those around you.

Let us say that again another way. It is possible to live in heaven while others are living in torment. At the deepest levels of consciousness it is simply a matter of choice.

We do recognize that you have been, and are continuing to be, manipulated by forces that desire to keep you imprisoned. But our choice in this communication is to give you keys to jump out of that imprisonment, not dwelling on the history of it, or the identities of those involved. For, in truth, the true Controllers are unseen by you. They are the Puppet Masters.

As chaotic events escalate you will have many opportunities to jump timelines. Our suggestion is to remember the steps we discussed earlier. You might experiment with this method by choosing to conduct an experiment. Choose something that you would like to unfold as a reality in your life and using the steps we discussed, see what you can create.

Physical and Spiritual Survival

Our essential reason for imparting this message involves something of greater consequence than creating personal desires. This “something” literally has to do with your survival, both physically and spiritually.

As chaotic events escalate, your powers of intuition will be more important to you than ever before.

Some people call them “hunches.” Without knowing how you know, you suddenly knowwhat to do in a situation.

This is how intuition works. In these moments of intuition you are at a juncture point—a time node—where you can jump into a different timeline and a different outcome.

This increase of intuitive receptivity is one of the hallmarks of personal ascension, or the movement upward in consciousness. A more developed intuition has obvious physical survival benefits.

A moment ago we said something that may be paradoxical to some individuals. We said that the ability to jump timelines had both physical and spiritual survival benefits.

What we meant here is that the ability to jump a timeline into a different outcome can result in physical survival in certain situations. By spiritual survival, we mean that there are threats to your spiritual awakening. If you lose track of your own truth, if you lose the two treasures that you possess in your nature—your sovereign will and your capacity to feel—then you are spiritually in danger. Do not lose sight of these treasures in yourself. As chaotic events increase, and they shall—for this is the birthing of a new world—the Controllers will increase their efforts. Be leery of mind-control and of any thought form that limits your sovereign will and your ability to feel, regardless of its origins—even if it comes from one of your “sacred” religions.

Any thought form, no matter how dressed up in sacred garb or political correctness that would limit your sovereign will to choose or your capacity to feel should be avoided. This is a vital necessity for those of you who wish to survive this passage spiritually intact.

The Convergence of Timelines and the Alteration of Probabilities

Let us now turn our attention to the primary reason for this communication. Everything we have said up to this point is background and suggestions for the training of your own consciousness to jump timelines.

But now we turn our attention to two highly significant timelines that exist independently of your creation. They are of a different order of existence. They are not created out of your personal choice. And they exist in diametric opposition to each other.

You exist, as we have said on numerous occasions, in multiple timelines and probabilities simultaneously. One of the timelines you and humanity are living in at this moment is a fulfilling of the prophecies of doom and planetary destruction. This is a very real timeline. But, this is only one possible timeline. You are at a convergence point, a time node, where it is possible to jump from the doomsday probabilities into a new type of Earth and a new order of existence.

This timeline, which we call the New Earth, is a very different dimension of experience than your current reality. In this timeline, Earth is deeply honored and held in gratitude by the bulk of humanity, which understands and appreciates the truth that all life is interconnected.

Here, Earth is not ravaged and exploited for the sake of profit—at the detriment of her very ecosystem. Technologies have been transformed through the elevation of human consciousness. Gone are the life-threatening technologies and life damaging mindsets of your current era.  Wars are a thing of the past. The Controllers who exerted negative forces upon your destiny through their manipulation of religion, economics and international affairs have relinquished their power. Life itself is held as sacred, and a new understanding of the sacredness of matter is embraced by humanity. There is no war between Heaven and Earth in this new world.

There are more things that we could say about this timeline, but you have a sense, we hope, of the difference between this timeline and the other that ultimately leads to doom and destruction.

There is one more thing we wish to say about this timeline of the New Earth. It is an attribute that we particularly appreciate. In this new timeline, the veils between the worlds are thin, and there is greater interaction between humans and intergalactic beings—such as ourselves—and with what you might call the devic and spirit worlds.

It is here that we must say it is not our intention to sway you, for we believe in non-intervention. We will not interfere with your free will. However, we are free to point out to you what we see.

In ancient Egypt there was a goddess called Maat, who held a set of scales, and upon death the heart of an Initiate would be placed upon the scales, and a feather would be placed on the other side. If the heart was as light as a feather the Initiate would be given entrance to the heavenly worlds—meaning higher states of consciousness. But if the heart was laden with negativity, regret, and sorrow, the Initiate would have to return to the lower worlds.

In a very real way humanity is at its meeting point with Maat. Every person who believes in the timeline of doom, destruction and horror will add to its reality. Everyone who holds as real the timeline of the New Earth will add to its reality.

You are not powerless in this situation. You hold in your very nature the power of radical change for yourself and the planet—especially for humanity. If you feel a resonance with this timeline of the New Earth, and if you choose to live in this new order of being, you will be adding your weight, so to speak, and helping to tip the scales.

We wish to say something we said earlier, for it is of vital importance. It is possible to live in heaven while those around you live in torment. This has little to do with your location in time and space, but more to do with your vibrational state.

If you feel the truth of what we are saying and choose to align with this New Earth, we welcome you to a new timeline and a new destiny.

Our suggestion is to go over the steps of how to jump timelines we gave earlier, and to begin the grand experiment. Enter the timeline of the New Earth and prepare yourself for the miraculous.

Finally—let the Earth speak to you. Let her caress you and transfer to you her deepest knowledge and wisdom. She shall be a great ally in the coming changes.

We shall give further information about jumping timelines and the New Earth in future communications. But for now, we hope you have a basic understanding of how to proceed.

As always, even in the midst of such great difficulties as you now face, we hold a higher vision for you, the human family. We see your hidden greatness, even though you may not see it yourself. We hold a light in this hour of darkness. It is just a reminder of the great light you hold within yourself. It is time to free this light within you. Future generations will be blessed by your ascent. May it be so.

The Hathors
August 3, 2010


Tom’s Thoughts and Observations

Several things caught my eye in this communication. First of all they used a term, trans-historical, which I had never heard before. When I asked them about this, they said it described a way of looking at certain types of intergalactic influences that transcend linear time. Thus, the influences they were speaking about were generated outside of time, as we understand it, but then showed up in our time line from pre-history until the present moment. I don’t completely understand all of what they are saying here. I am just passing it on.

Since they emphasized the significance of time nodes so many times and belabored the point of how to jump from one timeline to another, I asked them what the duration was for this current time node. According to them, this time node is highly significant because it contains multiple convergences of possible/probable timelines that will affect our planet and our destiny as a species. Two of the timelines they specifically mentioned were a timeline that fulfills the prophecies of planetary purification and destruction running along with a timeline that leads to a new more benevolent future, a timeline they referred to as the New Earth.

So when did this time node begin and when will it end? According to them, this particular time node of polar opposite destinies emerged into our 3D reality in July of this year and will continue in various permutations through July of 2013.

Please note, they are not saying that the New Earth timeline came into existence during this time node. In point of fact, according to them, this benevolent timeline has been going on for quite some time. But the polar opposite timelines of planetary destruction versus planetary renewal are now moving very close to each other (the time node aspect). Thus, if one knows how to jump timelines, it is much easier to do when the timeline you desire is so close to the one you are on.

The significance of this time node is that humanity is at a choice point regarding which timeline it will experience as a collective reality. And according to the Hathors, the reality that will prevail is being anchored through the choices we are now making, both as individuals and as a collective.

In this message, the Hathors have imparted a basic method for jumping timelines, which, as they indicated, is primarily information for those of us who choose to live in a different and more benevolent reality than the increasingly surrealistic and life-negative reality that humanity is currently living in.

The Training and Preparation section of their message can certainly be used as a method for personal manifesting. Indeed, those who are experienced with these types of matters would most likely consider this information to be Manifesting 101. But the simplicity of the method belies its profundity. The Hathors are masters at simplification of complex concepts and techniques, and this one is no different. However, their reason for sharing this basic method is not for manifesting desires, though it will work for this purpose; it is rather to present a method that will allow us to radically shift planetary realities— if not for the greater collective of our human family, then at least for ourselves.

I loved the metaphor they chose to describe our current situation—as a ship at sea.  Indeed, our situation reminds me of what happened on the Titanic as it was sinking. The ship had hit an iceberg and the lower levels of the vessel were filling with water. At first they tried to hide the danger from those on the upper decks. And so the party went on, complete with orchestra, until the end was obvious.

In the manipulated media-hype of our consumer obsessed culture, few are pointing out that our ship, the S.S. Western Civilization, is severely listing to one side, or that it is sitting dangerously low in the water.

The Hathors believe that if enough people jump timelines, leaving the prophetic timeline of planetary destruction behind, and instead, enter the more benevolent and life-affirming reality of what they call the New Earth, many of the disastrous prophecies regarding our planet will not come to pass.

But they are also clear that even if the collective does not shift into a higher destiny, something remarkable will happen for those of us who have the courage to live a different reality than the one that is being impressed upon us by our current culture. “It is possible to live in heaven while those around you live in torment.”

There is something else in this latest message that I consider to be of vital importance—especially for those of us who are actually going to attempt jumping timelines. And this “something” has to do with our human capacity for delusional or “magical thinking.” In case you aren’t aware of that term, magical thinking is a thinking disorder in which the person believes that just by thinking something, it is real or can be made real without any effort on his or her part.

There is, in my opinion, a highly toxic element in New Age thinking that encourages denial as a means to cope with certain difficulties in life (i.e., magical thinking). And to be sure, the current and escalating insanity of our world is increasingly difficult for many of us to cope with. But if someone reading this thinks that denial is an acceptable means to deal with the realities of our current timeline, I wish to point out that the Hathors are saying something quite to the contrary.

Part of the art of jumping timelines is to hold the vision and vibrational signature of the timeline we wish to experience. But at the same time, we need to pay attention to the actual realities of the timeline we are on. This is living between the worlds, and this is the type of mastery the Hathors are calling us to.

I suspect that many of us who choose to jump timelines (myself included) will encounter a learning curve, where we fall short of being able to leap to the new timeline and/or fail to sustain it. This is completely normal when learning a new skill, and yes, this is essentially a new skill—albeit a profound one. So my advice to all of us neophyte timeline-jumpers is to be gentle with ourselves, leave self-judgment behind, and enter into this type of learning experience with a good sense of humor. After all, the whole thing is, from at least one perspective, a grand cosmic joke.

How we navigate the realities of a transforming (some would say dying) civilization, while keeping our hearts and minds on the timeline we wish to live in, will undoubtedly become an art form.

And so… to my fellow Artists of the Living Mystery, to those of you who are enamored with the vision, and who have the courage to jump, I raise my cup to you.

I salute you and the great undertaking we are about to engage, which is nothing short of the ascent upward into our own highest qualities as spiritual beings living a human experience.

Blessings to you and your loved ones,
Tom Kenyon
