Greetings Friends of Art and Technology,


this post is from a fellow peaceworker I met while co-founding the Los Angeles Council on Harmonic Convergence with a woman named Helen Samuels..... She and I had the chance to reunite during the Children's World Peace Festival. I was invited to present Creativity Cafe's a "New School for the Next Millennium" environment. It was for this that "KidCast For Peace; Solutions For a Better World" was originally conceived. Here is news from our friend in Canada:

--------- fwd -------------

Hello my dear friends from around the world

Just a quick word of appreciation to those who sent their heartening
comments on my recent post entitled "We Are Winning" - see some of those
comments below.

Someone also wrote: "I hear from my friend that you have a wild email
network worth checking out."

Interestingly, it appears many of you have been recommending to their
friends to get on my list. Thanks! For those of you who would like to do
the same, here is a brief introductory statement which you may want to
use...

The Earth Rainbow Network, founded in February 1997, has an extensive list
of people from around the world sharing visions and feedbacks on a broad
range of subjects including spiritual themes such as personal and planetary
transformation, spiritual renaissance as well as their views on all kinds
of worthy causes. To be added on this list write to
globalvisionary@cybernaute.com and simply include "Add me to your list" in
the subject field of your email.
You may also check the Earth Rainbow Network website at
http://www.cybernaute.com/earthconcert2000 and read some of the material
posted to this list and linked at the bottom of the first webpage of this
extensive site.

And to conclude, just a quick word to say that the meditation last Saturday
synchronized with James Twyman's Peace Concert on the Kosovo border was
felt as a very powerful high-voltage experience in global mind-link and
certainly achieved a number of positive results - although we must continue
our Peace Vigil everyday until peace prevail. James gave his concert as
planned.

Love and blessings to all of you

Greetings Jean,

I cannot tell you the emotion evoked by your message entitled "we are
winning". I feel that in the last few days I have been riding quite a
spiritual wave as it was. The Y2K efforts in our area have fostered the
greatest sense of oneness and common people reaching a level that I find
hard to put into words but that I have certainly not seen in my lifetime.
Then based on postings urging that we increase our requests for divine
intervention I have have had some of the most exciting elevations that I
have experienced while meditating and carrying out these requests. The
connections are happening more frequently and more readily.

In addition, on Tuesday my mother was quite effected by something that
had happened to her the night prior. Something that she could not really
classify as a dream as she seemed to be in a waking state for most of the
night. She found herself in a field in Kosovo with great numbers of
refugees. She was assisting in taking care of some small children first a
little boy and then a small girl. Her energies felt very drained along with
great sadness as she looked around to view the appalling conditions. What
impressed her most was the stench and that you could tell that through the
filth the people around her had been dressed nicely. Her attention was then
drawn to the sky and she suddenly saw an army of winged angels on horses
descending to the earth and knew they were a celestial army allowed to come
and assist us at this time of need. She now feels very connected to the
refugees and bears a great weight of sorrow for their pain.

May we all be empowered with this vision and the comfort of your words to
know that darkness will soon lift and we do have it within our selves to
make a difference.

Bless you you for the difference you have made in our lives by linking this
powerful connection of souls in our dimension. Bless all of the
lightworkers out there, we are coming together in a blinding light that
will soon illuminate the darkest corners.

Peace and Love,
Eve

We are winning

April 7, 1999... uplifting and inspiring words from Jean Hudon.
globalvisionary@cybernaute.com

Certainly this type of enthusiasm and inspiration
will increase many fold during the ensuing weeks
and months. This is because we are moving beyond
doubt or hope or even intention and into
"knowingness"...this is the "Truth that shall set us
free" type of knowing. Any of us can "tap" into it
at any time.

I celebrate each and every one of us as we allow
any remaining doubts that Peace will soon reign on
Earth to be absorbed by the brightness of both our
greatest desires and the one dream manifesting.

THERE ARE NO DREAMS TOO BIG.

Feel, sense, know and experience the completion
of conflict within. Continue to imagine and realize
in each breath the completion of conflict
throughout the world.

I have felt the gentle, compassionate "tug" on my
heart directly from the Albanians, and all in
involved in the last vestiges of conflict on Earth.
On the level of brilliance, we all know that we are
living out the final scenes of the degradation of
any and all wondrous beings on this Earth...the
end of the degradation of our beloveds, each and
every one of us.

And when the Oneness of ALL wins, we all win.

Subject: YYYEEESSS!

Just a big resounding thank you for We Are Winning! I've passed it on.
Love ya

Soleira

AND I ALSO RECEIVED THIS REMARKABLE TEXT FROM SANTARI, HER PARTNER... WITH
THIS SENTENCE THAT REALLY STRUCK ME AS A BEAUTIFUL SYNTHESIS OF HIS MOST
TIMELY MESSAGE:

"Remember to give up your black & white perceptions of duality and
separation, in exchange for the rainbow colours of Oneness."

Date: Sat, 10 Apr 1999
From: Santari Green
Subject: Now is the time for remembering.

Within the heart of each one of us there is the consciousness that we are
all one. No longer just an intellectual knowing and affirming, but a
strength of FEELING and EXPERIENCING. Look to your friends, colleagues,
people in the street - there is growing a desire to accept and understand
one another. There is more than just a feeling of love that is abroad now,
it is a call for unity and community.

So how can we encourage this state of grace? I have something I am
prompted to share with you.

Treat each day as the First Day Of Creation. It allows you to step free
from the past, with all its associations. With the waking to a new day,
let go of yesterday and all that happened within it because
today you have the propensity to start something new. Your potential is
unlimited when it dances in the present moment. Dare to be different every
day. Flaunt your uniqueness. Play the lead role in the world that only you
can play, and don't shrink from doing, saying, feeling, being whatever
spirit calls forth from you. The First Day Of Creation is an affirmation
that WE ARE Source, continually at play in creating harmony and Heaven,
wherever we are.

Be like a child. Have a childlike trusting that the world IS a safe place
to be; that you can express who you truly are; and treat others as if they
have something wonderful within them to give to the world. Freed from
criticism, blame, judgement and condemnation, each person can be honoured
for the roles that they play out and the teachings they exchange with
others. Remember to give up your black & white perceptions of duality and
separation, in exchange for the rainbow colours of Oneness.

Honour growth and change in yourself. Let your capacity to give and
receive love (joy, compassion, etc.) expand continually. Let others feel
your acceptance of them. And just let go of alliances (with understanding
and grace) when the time together has been completed and people need to
move on to tackle fresh ventures.

As you tap into your potential then so also do the groups and associations
and enterprises and agencies of all human potential find themselves linking
and working together, to build to a common purpose that supports the whole
and uplifts the world into a new awareness of its self. The more that you
are aware of your wholeness and can recognise the wholeness of others, in
spirit, then the greater is the force for change. What stops each one of
us from knowing and declaring that we ARE already whole and healed from any
separation from Source? What stops you from holding the vision that the
world and humanity are one - and being joy-filled in that Oneness? Be
aware that what you put your focus and energy to WILL manifest.

A Global Group Consciousness is already in place that honours the equality
and value of everything. Are you existing in that space of knowingness now?
Are you in that space of creation where you ARE Source? A fully conscious
co-creator of your own reality and the world's reality, in which we are all
participants together. Dancing a dance of energy, essence to essence.

We are whole within ourselves and we are one with each other at the same
time. RIGHT NOW.

Perhaps now, with our linking up, we have a better chance of remembering
all that we are.

Love and Blessings
Santari Green

Dear Jean,

Thanks! We are WINNING, and we have a lot of help! The Angels are
listening and we are beginning to listen to their guidance as they help us
create the reality that our ongoing prayers for peace allow them to
co-create with us.

The great news is that on the Spring Equinox a most miraculous Stargate was
opened to spread the much needed Light over our troubled times! I wish to
refer you to the latest Galactic Federation/Spiritual Hierarchy update as
transmitted by Sheldan Nidle. Over the past few Updates the GF and SH have
been all very excited about this new energy gate, but in this last update
we hear from the Council of Nine of the Great Blue Lodge of Sirius, who are
the magnificent beings who are primarily responsible for creation of this
World. I was not their idea to ever have it corrupted by the 4th
Dimensional renegades who took over Atlantis and became the core of the
Elites who have dominated our planet for the past 13,000 years, but it is
through their Love and energy that we are destined to become a "showcase"
planet crowned with a glorious destiny of Peace, Joy and an ever loving and
evolving species of humans.

The following is a link to this update from The Council of Nine. I suggest
you do some deep breathing and allow your own inner guides to be with you
as you read this message. That way you can appreciate it more deeply and
allow it to touch your own inner memories of these times and bring them to
your consciousness from the Light of your own Soul. Enjoy!

http://www.paoweb.com/uf040699.htm

In closing I would like to say that I continue to stand in awe of all the
work that you do and the loving intent of your heart as you bravely go
forth spreading the "news". :o)

Love/Light, Joy and Abundance,

Angharad Llewellyn

Jean, this is a part of this weeks newsletter for the Women's Spiritual
Network which you might like to pass on. Love and blessings, Maggie

HOLDING THE LIGHT

During these intense and difficult days, we are asked to remain strong,
centered and clear in ourselves. Now we are being tested and asked to
put into practice all that we have been learning. We must continue to
hold the light, to send it where it is needed, and to remain in a
constant state of meditation and prayer. Now lightworkers everywhere are
being called to begin their work, there is a call to unite, so many want
to help and many who were not aware until now are stepping forward into
the light ready to take up the work. Many angelic beings and higher
forces are willing to work through us, we can offer our services and
become pure channels for the divine to flow through.

Purification is very important at this time, cleansing on all levels is
necessary and it is the individual's choice how to go about this. A few
weeks ago, myself and another healer friend were prompted to do a seven
day water fast. It was primarily a spiritual fast and now we realize it
was a necessary preparation for the work we have to do at this time and
have found it greatly enhanced our awareness and meditation.

This Sunday is the Orthodox Easter. It is no coincidence that James
Twyman will perform his Peace Concert near Kosovo tomorrow, we are asked
to join him in a world meditation at this time.

Message to Barbara

Just before the 4th, I received a message from the Lord Buddha to give to
those who joined the meditation here, I read it to the group (there were
about 50 people in the room - countless others in other locations) after we
had focused Loving Kindness and Compassion on the Balkans, on those who
instigated the conflict and those again behind them (to heal their hearts
and redress the Light balance within them). The room just lit up with
Light, many people were crying with joy, it was just incredible.

Afterwards some of the people there told me that they had received messages
in dreams, or heard voices that had told them to come to the meeting and
after the message they knew why.

However, the main work took place last night Last night from around
1.30 to 2 am (Thai time) so much was transmuted. The darkness was opened to
the light and the balance has been shifted. I know now what all my many
lifetimes of training were for.

It has been done. The Spiritual Heirarchy, the angels, the Elohim and the
Wholeness/Holiness were with me/us (the human element) and together we did
what had to be done. The celebration reaches through all creation. I feel so
happy.

From: Alice Bryant/Linda Seebach
Subject: Thought

Dear Jean,

I received your (daily) messages today, (Thank You and Bless You)
concerning thoughts and the call for more meditation, and I had these
thoughts:

At the present NOW moment, the only expedient way for Earth to achieve
the future all the Light Workers envision is through the process of
reaching Critical Mass.

For any not familiar with Critical Mass, I suggest they research the
Hundredth Monkey research data. Additionally, in Your Nostradamas
Factor, Ingo Swann states, "In short, so the theory goes, if a hundred
monkeys learn something, all monkeys will soon acquire this knowing even
in the absence of any sensory contacts with the learned monkeys. An
unknown form of 'learning transmission' is thought to exist, which would
explain all this. Such learning transmission is presumably psychic,
since it is of some nonsensory quality. Critics say this is all bunk,
but the facts remain. With a wide expanse of ocean separating them,
monkeys learned something in a way that no standard or prevailing
explanation can account for.

"It is rather well known that humans possess psychic states that
influence those around them. And there is also a phenomenon of people
separated by vast distances 'having the same idea at the same time.'"

He further observed that "...the hundredth monkey syndrome appears
operative in NEGATIVE as well as positive respects. If a lot of us
forget or ignore one of our powers, eventually the rest of us, by
'dis-learning transmission,' may do so also."*

The Critical Mass idea is that humans are capable of reaching the
"magic point" where consciousness itself is CHANGED through psychic
interlinking and that which was not seen or known before IS SEEN AND
KNOWN.

With the incredible linkage potential of the net, WHAT IF, ALL of us
joined thought forms and ASKED FOR Critical Mass to be reached in favor
of PEACE, HARMONY, ACCEPTANCE and LOVE reigning on Mother Gaia?

Many times we do not receive an answer or the insight we seek simply
because we do not ask the right question to begin with. We need every
single living thing on Earth to harmonize, come back into balance and
respect and honor each other - not just humans, but ALL LIFE forms.

Personally, I would like to ask everyone interested to join in a
meditation, prayer for Critical Mass.

In Love and Light,

Linda Seebach

P.S. You may post this or not as you see fit, the quotes from Ingo are

Potential by Alice Bryant and Linda Seebach, Blue Water Publishers 1998)

Do you also feel that there is just so much happening
right now? One minute its all dark, the next, all
light, fluctuations, from moment to moment. The
feeling is really of a great cosmic battle being fought,
there is a coursing of pulsating waves surging through
the raw dry soil of Africa; it surges in the trees, through the
delicate lace of intertwining leaves; it thunders
through concrete and mortar, it seethes in underground sewers,
it rages through the oceans, it tears through the the heavens.....
even the insensitive can sense it.....I am reminded of the
sounds of a woman in labour, trying to give birth, the raw
heat and dust and blood of Africa.....something is happening....

Please let's all do what we can to get the word out about the PRAYER VIGIL

Every day, for at least thirty days. Two minutes (minimum) of silent
meditation and prayer for a miracle in Kosovo 3pmEST, noonPST, 8pmLondon,
etc.

This is an international prayer vigil, so tell people wherever they are.

If everyone who reads this sends out at least one fax or e-mail about this,
it will help. Remember, the more minds share an idea, the stronger it is.

Subject: Use of depleted uranium in Kosovo

The following was sent to me through the Association of Contemplative
Sisters. Rosalie Bertell is one of their members. It seems important to get
the word out on this. Kay McMullen, SND-CA

From: Rosalie Bertell

Dear Catherine and others,

First, I am an Epidemiologist, not a physicist (although I have taught
college level physics). My specialty is in higher mathematics, with
applications in the radiobiology and the biomedical sciences.

You can quote me on the following comment on the crisis in Kosovo:

Depleted (DU) uranium is one of the largest categories of radioactive waste
produced for the nuclear weapons and nuclear reactor industry. It is
highly toxic to humans, both chemically as a heavy metal and radiologically
as an alpha particle emitter which is very dangerous when taken internally.
Recently it has been substitute for lead in bullets and missiles by the US
and UK, and was first used extensively by the West in the Gulf War. It is
most likely a major contributor to the Gulf War Syndrome experienced both
by the veterans and the people of Iraq.

When used in war, the DU bursts into flame from the impact when it hits a
target. It can pierce tanks and armoured cars, releasing inside of them a
deadly radioactive aerosol of uranium, unlike anything seen before. It can
kill everyone in a tank. This ceramic aerosol is much lighter than uranium
dust. It can travel in air tens of kilometres from the point of release,
or be stirred up in dust and resuspended in air with wind or human
movement. It is very small and can be breathed in by anyone: a baby,
pregnant woman, the elderly, the sick. This radioactive ceramic can stay
deep in the lungs for years, irradiating the tissue with powerful alpha
particles within about a 30 micron sphere, causing emphysema and/or
fibrosis. The ceramic can also be swallowed and do damage to the
gastro-intestinal tract. In time, it penetrates the lung tissue and enters
into the blood stream. It can be stored in liver, kidney, bone or other
tissues, again for years, irradiating all of the delicate tissues located
near its storage place. It can effect the blood, which is the basis of our
immune system, and do damage to the renal system as it is eventually
excreted in the urine. It can also initiate cancer or promote cancers
which have been initiated by other cancinogens.

In October 1998 the WHO undertook a two year study of the increasing cancer
rates, especially leukemia in young children, which have been note in
southern Iraq where most of the war took place.
The WHO report is not yet out, but newer data from Iraq tells the story of
even more dramatic increases in cancer rates, especially among the Iraqi
veterans who participated in the war. In the West, thousands of veterans
are recognized as seriously ill with an unknown syndrome, and we have been
able to document DU in their urine as late as 7 or 8 years after the war.
There is no natural source of DU to explain this phenomena!

It is imperative that we all denouce this radiation and toxic chemical
warfare! It has now been used by the US and Britain against Iraq and in
Bosnia. It is now being used in Kosovo (NATO announcement in Europe, 30
March 1999). It has been condemed by the United Nations Human Rights
Tribunal (August 1996 Session of the UN Commission on Human Rights,
Sub-Commission on the Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of
Minorities). The Human Rights Commission has requested that the Secretary
General prepare a written report on DU and certain other weapons of mass
destruction (Resolution 1997/36, which also established a UN Rapporteur to
take over the study of DU and other weapons of mass destruction on behalf
of the UN). The damage being done will not only cause incredible and
unending suffering to today's victims, but the genetic damage it may cause
can be passed on to their offspring. Such weapons and war itself need to
be condemned as utter barbarianism!

This is certainly not to be interpreted as condoning so-called ethnic
cleasing or any of the nationalistic actions of the Yugoslav government.
However, as one of the Professors at the University of Toronto said, "I can
offer a different and more effective policy, but I would not start from
here". This Kosovo action is resulting from deep seated conflicting ideas
of "World Order" - that proposed by NATO's vision of itself as a world
police force, and that of the OSCE (Organization for Security and
Cooperation in Europe) which sees security rising out of honest cooperation
and legal resolution of conflicting opinions.

KOSOVO 'FREEDOM FIGHTERS' FINANCED BY ORGANISED CRIME

Heralded by global media as a humanitarian peace-keeping mission, NATO's
ruthless bombing of Belgrade and Pristina goes beyond the breach of
international law. While Milosevic is demonised as a remorseless dictator,
the KLA is upheld as a nationalist movement struggling for the rights of
Albanians. The truth is that the KLA is sustained by organised crime with
the tacit approval of the US and allies.

Following a pattern set during the War in Bosnia, public opinion has been
carefully misled. The multibillion dollar Balkans narcotics trade has
played a crucial role in "financing the conflict" in Kosovo in accordance
with Western economic, strategic and military objectives. Amply documented
by European police files, acknowledged by numerous studies, the links of
the KLA to criminals in Albania, Turkey and the EU have been known to W
govts and intelligence agencies since the mid-1990s.

The financing of the Kosovo guerilla war poses critical questions and
sorely tests claims of an "ethical" foreign policy. Should the West back a
guerrilla army that appears partly financed by organised crime?[1]

While KLA leaders were shaking hands with Madeleine Albright at
Rambouillet, Europol was "preparing a report for European justice ministers
on a connection between the KLA and Albanian drug gangs."[2]

In the meantime, the rebel army has been skilfully heralded by global media
(in the months preceding the NATO bombings) as representative of the
interests of Albanians in Kosovo.
