[Note: Tape picked up during discussion of establishing the Merkaba.]
[[ Daniel: … mind of man, and that runs along the hemisphere, the equator, and it moves to our right, counter-clockwise and moves very fast. So when we connect our minds to the mind line, then we become of “one mind,” combined intent—that’s where the “intent” becomes powerful. Also, we connect with the heart-line, heart energy—that person has heart, that person has connection, compassion—that’s all heart energy. It goes from our left, around the circle. So that unites our intellect, our mind, the energy of the Son of God, and the heart energy, the energy of the Mother Spirit. Make sense? Any questions?
What we are doing is combining our united minds, our united hearts, our united energies, so that we can then use this energy stream powerfully, and send it to wherever we will to direct it. I see energy streams in my mind and it is like I am way out in space, and I see me sitting here in the mountains of Colorado and I see these energy arcs go to my children, to my family, associates and friends, and to countries which need assistance, so I am using the combined energy of everybody, plus myself, to do that, so it becomes very, very powerful. Okay? ]]
Student: So Daniel, when you do that and you say, “Send the energy to those that you know need healing, or need this,” you’re actually visualizing the energy from the top of the Merkaba, streaming down?
Student: To that individual?
Student: So you are just visualizing?
Student: It’s kind of like a silver or gold cord or whatever?
Daniel: Yes, it’s like an arc. It goes from here and arcs over to there, and I found it to be particularly effective when, as tonight, I’d pray for Michael’s son—what’s his name?
Daniel: I’d pray for Robert tonight; I don’t know what the need is, but I don’t need to know what the need is. Okay? Robert knows what the need is; Michael knows what the need is, and so we will send that energy to be used as it’s needed, for Robert’s highest and greatest good, or something better. There is nothing better than that. If you pray for something specifically, then you would say, “for this or something better.” Okay? I’ve been in a number of prayer teams in the past, and I’ve found that it is very effective just to sometimes talk to Christ Michael and I say, “I don’t know what is needed, and I release that, and I ask you to use this energy for this person’s highest and greatest good, to resolve the problem.” It’s very effective.
What I didn’t put in there—which I will read to you—is we also ask our angelic helpers, guides and teachers who are with us, to connect to the Merkaba and assist us in it’s use, to embellish it and empower it even further. You can have a permanent Merkaba in your home or meeting place, by everyone or myself, simply by declaring your intention of building a Merkaba, and ask your angelic helpers to emplace the Merkaba where you have formed it. Then you can connect to it with your consciousness from anywhere in the world, and direct it to any good purpose, at any time, any place. It’s like a dedication—we’ll dedicate this anchor here today, and it’ll be here. So when Debbie is at home and gets a call and somebody’s in trouble, she’ll just connect to the Merkaba and send the energy there. It’s really powerful!
Student: Is there a toll charge? (Much laughter.)
Daniel: Any problems? Call the IT.
I’ve found that mind energy is an electric-blue, and the Mother energy, healing energy is like if you have an “owie,” like on your elbow, you could bring down this energy from Mother Spirit, it’s really powerful for healing energy, and it’s kind of a lime-green color, kind of like celery but pretty bright. You can direct it into the place that needs healing. I do that and things get healed pretty quickly.
So if you are ready, we need to be still. We invoke the presence of the Creator now, and we become relaxed and feel the presence of Spirit around us and in us. We fill ourselves with the light of the Creator and surround ourselves with this light. Now let’s each take a moment to declare our intention for being here tonight and for participating in this Co-Creative Design Team.
Now we are feeling more balanced, relaxed and grounded. If you feel any stress or tension in your body, please release it. Do a body check from your head to your toes. Now do an emotional check to make sure you become at peace; if anything is bothering you, just release it. In this moment now, you can’t do anything about it anyhow, for the next half hour or hour, so just release it and be at peace. Still your mind—it’s kind of like a multiple Windows program; you just right click the mouse and close out a window. Just keep closing out those windows, until your mind is still. You feel yourself sink into your chair a little further.
Now, let us connect our energy streams to the north pole of this Merkaba; also the earth connected stream to the south pole of the Merkaba. And so, you see a globe of golden wires, with each of us sitting at the equator of this globe. And having connected to the Merkaba, it exists also with that energy stream from Paradise to earth center. If you can visualize the color, just enjoy it. Now connect your mind to the mind line of the Merkaba, and see it race to the next member to your right, and to the next member, and on around the group, very rapidly. Now connect your heart to the heart line, and see it’s pink stream of energy, move to your left and around the circle clockwise.
Let’s take a few minutes to use the Merkaba energy to send it to wherever it is needed, and I ask that each member to please send the energy from yourself and the Merkaba to Robert. This may be for healing, it may be for prosperity, it may be for Divine order, Divine timing, Divine development—whatever—it knows the need and it fills that need. Use the remainder of the next few minutes to send this energy to your loved ones, or whomever is in need—whatever you want to do with it. Bring your focus back to the center of the room, please. We give thanks for this energy and ask our guides and guardians to anchor this Merkaba energy here in this house, in this location, and we dedicate it with you to the highest and greatest good of all concerned. And so it is.
Let me take a few moments to become centered and settled myself. Sondjah is here.
SONDJAH: Good evening, this is Sondjah.
Group: Good evening.
SONDJAH: It is a pleasure to be here once again, and I have enjoyed your encounters with me during the week. I have enjoyed your questions and I wish you to know that I am present with many of you during the week. I have many limitations, but far fewer than yourself; I have not the capacity yet to be in many places at the same time, as Christ Michael can, but I do transport myself rather rapidly, to be in many locations very shortly, without much limitation.
I have been enjoying your discourses, among yourselves; questions you have brought to the team, and now I am going to turn the dial ninety degrees, for the team, to give you some more work to do. Now it is my turn to ask you questions, and this is how the work begins. I will pose a question to you about sustainability, and I am going to give you one that you may seem shocking if you were to hear it in the media, but we will engage it tonight because I wish to bring you closer to the topic of sustainability and to teach you rapidly how to engage this. What it will do is to cause you many, many questions, and then we will begin another dialog. So, what we [Sondjah and his teaching team] will do tonight is to ask you the question. Then, this group will split into two sub-groups of your choosing, and these sub-groups will work on striving to answer the question. Do you understand?
SONDJAH: You recall in the previous weeks, we have asked questions regarding the huge, broad field of healthcare, and the many plateaus and layers that are involved in this process, and how to develop sustainability. You devised many questions concerning this; they were well formed and well received and we discussed that at length. We will be going from that large general broad area, to a very specific area concerning marriage and the family. This question regards marriage, and the question is this: What does a sustainable marriage look like and why would it exist in a sustainable civilization and society? Giving you this question, I will not assist you further, but require you to devise questions and we will have a dialog shortly.
It will be a stretch for this one to be in and out of a TR situation/condition, but we will strive to work with him to make it easier for him to do this. Now you may choose your groups and strive to answer the question. You may take as long as you want before you call a time out, and want to ask questions of me for clarification or for explanation. You may want to go for some time on your own before doing that; you simply know that there are very few rules concerning this. This is as developmental for us as it is for you. We are learning as you go along. Thank you.
Student: What was the second part of the question?
Others: What does marriage look like and why would it exist in a sustainable society?
[Note from Transcriber Roxanne Andrews: Some of the discussion was not transcribed due to many people talking at the same time, and of the group discussions, only one group was recorded.]
[Note from Daniel: Further, these discussions, which may seem to go afar from Sondjah’s assignment, are provided for readers who are NOT currently participating in a Local Co-Creative Design Team, as a vicarious means of participation. What you will read below is fairly typical of discussions that I heard from the other sub-team.]
Student: When we think marriage today, it’s the hand-cuffs for life—or not. It is a contract, a commitment, there’s tremendous legal ramifications—it’s supposed to be for life, and of course we know it isn’t, very often. Some of us exemplify this well, always trying to be an example out there! I didn’t realize I was headed to the 23rd Century, but I am.
[Sondjah had mentioned the ‘sustainable society as being in the 23rd century to give students a perspective of a future, sustainable society to work toward in their discussions.]
SONDJAH: The point is, that it can be—as you were starting to say, as we were breaking up—it can be all of what we were describing it to be, and it can be one day that these two people decide that they continue, will always love, will always trust, will always seek Christ’s presence—but, their paths are taking them somewhere else, and they may not stay together physically or in the legal bondage business. Does that mean it isn’t a marriage? Maybe that marriage, or that partnership ended…
Student: A lot of marriages today appear to be about fear, security, financial stability, procreation—very few today are about love. I think the 23rd Century in a marriage, as we know it today, cannot work in a peaceful, harmonious community, unless we each of us, become whole in ourselves and connected with that highest truth, that universal truth—whatever we want to call it—and that it’s two wholes coming together in union. That doesn’t require a marriage certificate, and so I feel I don’t know how it would work exactly, but I feel if we’ve done the work, and if we are aware and awake, and we’ve embodied that Christ presence within ourselves and we are all working towards the highest good, then we wouldn’t need marriage, and we wouldn’t need just one, necessarily. We would be coming together in union with the highest spirit of all, and that might mean occasionally we would have to part.
Student: I can think of one particular reason why there would be a need for a contractual marriage, and that is for procreation couples, couples that are going to have children and that there is obligatory roles and obligatory, contractual “I will do this” and we will have children, and I will do this, and you will do this, and we will support these children and socialize them until they are on their way.
Student: I’m not sure… do you think it would be? If we have a future ahead of us where we have a community—you know in that famous saying, “It takes a village to raise a child”—if we are in that place, then there are vast amounts of opportunities for growth there, outside of that contract.
Student: Exactly so, I think what they are doing, we are getting at a hub, a nut, a kernel, and then we will expand from there. Community is the next phase of development that we would go onto.
Student: It’s as though we’ve gotten carried away with so many things. “The Course” [A Course in Miracles, ACIM] is all about Christ telling us, “You’ve gotten carried away with some things, and you often have missed the message.” One of the big messages that relate to this conversation from Christ in the Course is, “these children belong to God, not you. They’re my children; they’re God’s children.” Now, tell a new parent that and you’re likely to get shot.
I understand this is not something I want to be trite about—I don’t mean it that way, but in effect we are the sons of God. We all are. Now does that mean there isn’t a role and a place for a mom and a dad? I don’t mean that, but I do mean that it creates a different sense of our role. It really does create a different sense—ultimately we are preparing this child to become a son of God. That’s independence and it’s independent thinking, and it’s all the character and values we want to imbue them with or expose them to, so that they can adopt them if they will, and be excited about them, going on their own.
Student: And where do they learn that?
Student: I think it’s perfectly fine today that they learn those from parents… and the village that isn’t in place yet!
Student: And I’d like to add to that as well, because I am sure that many of you are aware that having seen some of the children that are coming in to consciousness right now, they have a lot to teach us! They are being born into a much higher consciousness than we were, and they are coming in with some beautiful gifts. I’m not saying that they don’t need to be helped and acclimatized, but…
Student: From what Sondjah and the other teachers have told us is that these children are all over the world, and some of them are wasted because there is not a nurturing environment for them. They have faculties and capabilities way past their environment; they have parents that don’t care, and they become a throw-away child. But the children who are nurtured in socializing and nurturing families by a couple or a family situation, present the opportunities to explore and explode all their potential, and so we see these Crystal Children and the Indigo Children, or whatever you want to call them or these remarkable children that are coming in…
Student: I feel very firmly about that, and that Indigo Children, Crystal Children, clearly, visibly have capacities and abilities that are not normally recognized in more kids, but they’re not born with some special set of “toys;” we all have them—we were born with the same thing they were born with, but it is the awake-ness, I believe, the consciousness of more and more children in this evolutionary cycle, that is making it more visible that they are out there. And we put them in institutions—learning institutions—that don’t know how to deal with them, they’re totally ….
Student: It’s— it was only a few years ago when no kid was on Ritalin, and today there’s like 20 Million kids, or some huge number. And I have some close friends who have a young one at a Montessori School, and the teachers are up in arms because he doesn’t concentrate, he won’t finish his work, he seems to be in his own little world, and da da da da duh, and I’m listening to my friend describe this behavior, and I kept listening and listening as he described more and more, and the teachers wanted to put him on ADHD drugs. So I gave them this Spiritual Cinema movie about Indigo—not the melodramatic one with Neale Donald Walsch—that was interesting and I actually sponsored that for 200 people to see—but there was a huge element missing in that whole melodrama, but the one Steven Simon did through Spiritual Cinema surpassed all these experts in the field of learning, education, physiology, et cetera, who had been focusing on these kids, and some experts in education. It was a brilliant movie, because it described them as not as crazy or abnormal or deficient, but as exceptional—exceptionally awake. Then of course, the prescription for how you deal with them, breaks the boundaries; the schools aren’t built that way.
So, anyway, my friend is describing their little boy and all their troubles that he’s causing the teachers, and I said to _________, I said, “You want some feedback?” He said, “Well, yeah.” I go, “I think he’s bored.” He said, “In Montessori?” and I said, “Yeah.” So it turns out, two nights later, the kid came home and wanted to do something like watch TV—I don’t know what it was—but his mom said, “Nope, you didn’t do any of your work today. You had four hours of work to do and you didn’t do any of it; you didn’t complete it. You can’t do [that] until you do your school work. Twenty minutes later, he was done—four hours worth of work. Ah ha! They wanted to put him on drugs anyway. Actually there are some newer pharmaceuticals that aren’t the Ritalin type, that can help stabilize a kid under certain circumstances, but you really gotta know what you are doing.
I taught Sunday School for a few years, down the hill—it was 3rd graders—it was a marvelous example. Here’s this guy who’s taught at universities, scouts and scout masters—I’ve been teaching all my life—and I get these 3rd graders. There was one kid that was on Ritalin, and he was a zombie! My heart just bled for him; he was totally wasted. Just a shame, so…….
Anyway, back to relationships, we got into the issue of consciousness and awake-ness, being a key element to a sustainable relationship.
Student: Well, that points into consciousness, actually. You can look at Hawkins, “The Joy,” it’s about as high as you can get—it’s not enlightenment, but it is about as high as you can get.
Student: Oh yes! To live in joy is incredible!
Student: I email people all over the country and when a good idea comes around more than once, it takes two or three years—like “co-intelligence” and “sociocracy” and stuff like that—it’s like people going, “This fits with co-creation, this is a part of it.” I just don’t have the breadth of intellect to embrace so many concepts simultaneously….
Student: Anyhow, there’s some big things happening and we’re a part of that. This Co-Creative Design Team process is incredibly exciting and we are right along with some of the intellectual, cultural leaders of our country and the world.
Student: You made a very good point, just now, because it’s not at all linear. It is a dimensional mind/body/spirit/etheric multi-dimensional thing. That’s why the Merkaba is such a perfect fit, is that it’s multi-dimensional at all levels, as I’ve just described. Some are able to, more naturally, think multi-dimensionally than others, it’s just a fact of life. Some people are better physicists than others who are into art. I have a gift for that—I think that way.
So when we talk about sustainable marriage, we have to talk about it on all those levels, and see how it fits together, if it does. Or wellness, or health—whatever you want to call it.
Student: In this kind of discourse, is it ever a help to go backwards instead of forwards? Like why was marriage invented, or is that of little use?
Student: That is a useful way of examining what we are doing now; I don’t think a historic, pathological way of thinking is oftentimes productive, but it does reveal what has happened and why go there again—or maybe we need to go there again.
Student: What just popped into my head is why all the genealogy in the Old Testament, there was this kind of inheritance on a physical level, and that the Patriarchs had to know that this was “my child.” We don’t think like that any more. All children need to be raised, whether they came from my egg or sperm or whatever, and I think sometimes going back to the root of an institution like marriage, is helpful.
Student: I think it would provide some clues about some of the reasons for different kinds of marriages existing.
Student: Barbara Marks Hubbard was talking about how she got married so young and had kids and went into the rosy glow, and all that sort of stuff, but she really thinks now that it’s not physical children we need to be birthing; it’s more along the line of ideas, and so forth, in that we need “vocational arousal” when you get as rosy about why you are here, as you did about birthing these little children.
Student: Because of ideas of new ways of being?
Student: She created what was called the “Phenomena of Man’s Society,” which all came out of Teilhard de Chardin. He believed in evolution, and in his first book that was translated after his death—I couldn’t figure out how a Jesuit Priest could write a book about evolution and then the Church letting it be printed—well it’s because it was printed after he died (on Easter of 1955). He believed in something called the “biosphere” and collective consciousness. He talked about the coalescence of mind, which is nothing different than what we’ve been talking about, when we were talking about Hawkins or whatever.
The coming together as one, the recognizing the knowing in your intellect, and eventually knowing in your heart and feeling oneness, is in fact, the coalescence of mind. It’s when you begin to recognize there is only one mind. Her cosmological—I’ve got a CD she put out when she started this latest campaign, is brilliant!
[Humanity Ascending, Part I, Our Story, http://www.humanityascending.com/]
The graphics! And she’s talking about the evolutionary scale and she’s such an evolutionist that she’s got all the information, and she’s got this technology that is stunning! We really should see it sometime—it is totally brilliant. I took it to the retreat, just in case there was a moment when somebody might want to fit it in, but we never stopped talking long enough to see it.
Student: Here we should check in with Sondjah.
SONDJAH: So my friends, you have had a new experience, have you not? I appreciate your struggle, working with this topic. You are beginning to see the many layers of a marriage; how it relates to family; how it relates to community; and you are beginning to get a glimmer of how you develop that into a sustainable society and civilization. You are quite correct that this is a multi-dimensional project. You are not linear creatures yourselves; you are multi-dimensional in your whole being. You must discover how to live in a multi-dimensional society through your multi-dimensional social institutions that are sustainable. This truly is no easy task, but yet it is not as complex and daunting as it appears—it will only take decades, and centuries, perhaps.
You have an inkling of what we are about, and what you are about to do with us. We would ask that you begin to ask these questions of yourself during the week. And, when we re-unite next week, that you can bring these questions and your insights to bear in your groups. It is hoped that there would be more who could attend, so that the diversity of thinking would be broader. We do not want to bias any sub-group by the presence of this one, who has so many insights from our conversations in quiet. We wish that you would engage this on your own, without guidance or without bias, but that you would learn how to work in a group with your own minds, coming up with new ideas and insights, and presenting your designs to the larger group.
We do not have time tonight for questions regarding this topic. Let us save those for next time and this will be a way of integrating new members who have missed tonight. If you have any immediate questions now, please present them.
