Topic: Heroic Peacekeepers
Group: Oklahoma City TeaM
MACHIVENTA: It’s time for men to become warriors for peace. It is the most difficult and delicate integration to learn how to do this. The traditional understanding of being a warrior is totally different from what the celestials are [pointing toward]. Traditionally, peace has been merely the cessation of conflict; this is an incorrect definition of peace.
You cannot protect what you yourself do not embody. To the extent that it’s in the genetic makeup of men to fight to protect, [the old way] is the only way they know. And now it’s time to learn an entirely different approach to understand what protection really is and what it is that needs protecting.
Men’s fear has been that if they have too much heart, too much gentleness, they won’t be able to do their job. They have been bred for a kind of peacekeeping that’s no longer sufficient to save the planet – it’s outdated, outmoded.
The fear is that if you’re the first man – the first president, the first general – to move into the new paradigm, you’re going to be caught with your pants down and they’re going to riddle you with bullets. And that fear is pervading the planet. It’s like the fear of being the first country to disarm. Somebody has to be willing to take the chance. That is not to say that if you take the chance you won’t be harmed; you might very well be caught with your pants down. But it sends a message out into the collective; it makes a ripple in the world that’s unforgettable.
That’s why the people who are going to have the most [[[visible]]] impact on peace in the world are the ones who are coming from the camp of the traditional mode of violent peacekeeping. If you have a Dalai Lama, for example, who speaks for peace, he’s not going to have much [direct] impact on the world because he’s already seen in the mold of a peacemaker. [Traditional] men will only respect other men who are moving from a warlike consciousness into a peaceful consciousness – if they’re men [leaders] they can relate to. Somebody who has been successful in battle and earned the respect of [people who are still part of] the old paradigm of war…if that person understands and shifts, makes a 180-degree turn, that is the person these other men will follow.
The problem with the culture is that those who understand true peacekeeping are seen as cowards. We need to have “true heroes” understand the meaning of peace. And when I say “true heroes,” I mean that which is defined in the culture as such. When such men are infused with the understanding of authentic peacekeeping, then and only then will enough people follow them to turn the tide.
So it’s important to be able to make contact with people at those levels – you’ve got to find a way to reach them. You have to reach the four-star generals, you have to reach to the highest levels, to [men such as] Saddam Hussein; you have to find a way to do that. Those are the men who will make the difference in the world. Now the rest of you, who are working in this way [with the celestials], you become the baseline, the fodder, the foundation, but in and of yourselves you are not going to be able to change the tide – [that can only be done by] men in positions of power. It’s your responsibility to find out how to get to them and how to change their souls. That is the only hope. That’s the only hope for humanity.
Byron: Can that be done through the movies? Is that the way?
MACHIVENTA: That works more on the level of the mass consciousness. The more people who are aware of this truth, the better. So that’s a very important part of this. Because [of the fact that] the people in power – in some cases – are answerable to the masses to some degree, that will help. To the extent that the people in power are disconnected from the masses, how masses feel and think will not affect them so much. It’s directly proportionate. In countries where government is more responsive to the feelings and desires of the people, things can change more.
So you have to work on it many different angles. So you get your masses more in tune with the understanding of what needs to happen and slowly, slowly, the politicians become responsive to that. But there are cultures in which the gap between what the common man understands and what the people in power do is so huge that it’s almost beyond hope to affect them in that way.
Byron: So what would be the way in that case?
MACHIVENTA: Because these people are fairly impervious to this kind of input it’s going to take something that… For some people it’s not possible; their humanity has been so buried, like the man in the movie tonight [referring to Bruce Willis’s character in The Jackal. So you choose your targets [from] those who still retain some sense of relatedness to human beings. You start with those who are approachable. The president of this country [Clinton, at that time] has humanity in him. But he doesn’t command the kind of respect that we were talking about. As I was saying before… that only those who are seen as powerful and true heroes can turn the tide, and your president is not like that.
The fact that he did not serve in your wars was a real handicap for him in doing his job. It’s like a man who is dragging one leg behind him. That’s the image we have. He’s doing his best, but he’s not the one. The man who had the highest potential for that was Anwar Sadat. This kind of caliber of human being.
Byron: Is there anybody on the horizon on the planet today that you would point to? That’s a hard one to transmit.
MACHIVENTA: The transmitter’s knowledge of this is so limited, that I feel her struggling in areas that are unknown to her. You have the background to know; she is to just give the general feeling. You understand what has been said thus far, and you can work with that.
Byron: Another follow-on is around the political work with reforming the UN and for world government. Is that the cart before the horse? Would that be a place to focus on now or is that secondary?
MACHIVENTA: It is like when you are in a very decisive battle and you have to strengthen your flanks. That [the UN and world government] is part of the battle plan – to strengthen that aspect – but that’s not going to be the forefront. The focus is always with individuals in power, because they have control over large movements. You have to reach people [in power], and it is actually possible to do so if you can gather enough energy together and allow yourselves to be used as a conduit for influencing these people. You choose your targets and then you gather your people [to do the work].
You can do this in your groups of Teaching Mission adherents. You can use your ability to actually open the channels for the influence of celestial energy to turn the tide. Because only when you work together as a group are you a wide enough channel for us to pour enough energy through. It is just like a plumbing system. A large water main from the city is going to carry a huge influx of water. The pressure per square inch is enormous, as opposed to one little faucet in one home. When you meditate individually, the effect for yourself personally is always positive, and we never would say not to pay attention to that. But when you have many together, then something [greater] can happen. There must be a sense of urgency to do so – to rise above your petty concerns. Care for them – but [use them] to serve as a platform of greater service. Join forces together.
Byron: And then direct the energy at individual leaders?
MACHIVENTA: Yes. You don’t actually need to do anything except ask for the celestial influence to move through you. We can’t do that [work on these leaders] directly; it needs to be done through [your] love. You have to find a way to be in compassionate openness in relation to people who are very closed. You ability to open to them allows us to move through [you] and into their hearts. It is not just that we are not supposed to do that directly; it’s because we are trying to learn [to work with you] and you are trying to learn to work with us.
This is a co-creative activity. If you actually see that the effect of your openness is positive, that it does move people, then you will be heartened. Then you will turn to us more for this kind of assistance. It is not that we cannot do that without you; it is that it is not the plan to do it without you. Do you see this distinction?
Byron: Yes. It has to be an evolutionary plan of collaboration of celestials and humans – an integration of the two.
MACHIVENTA: Exactly. Otherwise there is no growth there. An effect is had, but the people themselves are not actually transmuted from within, so it is an empty accomplishment.
Byron: It’s grace that’s unearned or undeserved.
MACHIVENTA: Well, there is no one even aware that grace has been given, you see. So it becomes a further confirmation that this is a mechanistic world.
Byron: . ..that even divine intervention is mechanistic!
MACHIVENTA: Right. Exactly. There may be an outcome that you can label “peace,” but it is not of your being and so it is only superficial, and therefore it will not last long. Any long-lasting transformation has to happen through the beings on the planet itself. That is the directive. That is the way Michael wants it.
Byron: It makes sense logically and to the heart – that history changes though that vehicle.
MACHIVENTA: And we are ever ready to stand by your side. But you need to call on us actively, sincerely, and profoundly.And quickly.
Byron: Quickly. There is an urgency.
MACHIVENTA: There is always an urgency. There is always an urgency. The difficulty with the human mind is that it usually only will change under “dire” conditions. People have responded only to fear of annihilation as a motivation for action. So what we are trying to do is inculcate the idea that urgency is not commensurate with panic and crisis.
When you have natural disasters in your midst, it’s a microcosm of what I’m speaking of. You have a flash flood, you have a volcano, an earthquake. People in a given neighborhood band together, they forget their differences, they pool their resources and energy; they open their hearts. Then the miraculous gets accomplished. Within three or four weeks, the energy abates; people return to their ordinary concerns and the vortex of energy that has been created disperses. Now that is not bad, but in a group of people who have dedicated themselves to bringing this planet into Light and Life, there needs to be an energy that sustains this kind of focused group intent [that I have been referring to].
Byron: All the time.
MACHIVENTA: All the time. And we are trying to convey to you that it is not necessary to provoke crisis or thought of a crisis. There will be beings who will attempt to do that, [in order] to stir the pot, but that is not an effective way. Because it is like infusing electricity into an electrical system that can’t handle it. You get a spike and then it drops down. And that has unfortunately been the effect of crisis as motivation for transformation.
Each time a crisis happens, it is true that when the spike comes down, it is a little higher [than it was at the baseline level]. But the level of difficulty and evil on your planet is outpacing the spike [of energy] that’s going up [to try to deal with it]… you can picture the graph. The difficulties [are increasing], and you have a spike [of energy that can come up to meet them]; then it goes down because it cannot sustain itself. [Because the problems are increasing,] it has to jump to a higher degree to meet it for the next crisis. So it is getting out of proportion.
And those [whose] humanitarian instinct, [whose] feeling of love for their fellow man and woman is developed to the point where they feel personally responsible to respond to these kind of calls, have only so much power and energy to do that. They need more [energy] to get to that higher level, because [difficulties] are increasing. Or there need to be more people [doing the work]. And it is much better to have more people doing more of the work than fewer people doing more of the work.
So you have to find a way to enlist large numbers of people in ways that can bring energy together. Now there are groups already existence who do that. They try to call large numbers of people together for meditations…
(The tape ended here, but he essentially went on to say that it would be good to link up with other groups and organizations with the same or similar goals. But the idea was to allow it to happen easily and organically, not with any kind of missionary zeal.)
