- The title is taken from the words of Martin Luther King
Jr., that are included in the coming Tavis Smiley PBS Special that will
air on Wednesday night. The broader issue here speaks to something I've
wrestled with for the last 42 years that is based on what has been forgotten;
while at the same time it was never understood by those that grew up in
all that time between the end of King's life, and the current impasse that
has shaped the world which so many are still trying to correct. In many
ways this 'special' is about the differences between 'America then versus
America Now.' (1)
- In the national discussions that have not taken-place;
the references to 'political-parties' is not meaningful because all-official-parties
were almost universal in their attempts to intrinsically remain locked-into
the continuing destruction of everything related, to keeping this nation
alive, in these final days of the endings which our actions over the last
four decades have allowed us to create.
- One reader wrote: "[still] caught in the illusions
are you, Remember in the Clint Eastwood movie aptly named, A Fistful of
Dollars where Clint comes into town and there is turf war between a Mexican
gang and a gringo gang. That is what is going on now. At one point in
the story he props up dead Mexican troops to fool the Mexican gang. This
is what is going on now for you. There are all sorts of dead people writing
you to distract you and wear you down and to make it seem like a lost cause.
- Stop wasting your energy on trying to convince the dead!
Write to inform those who are alive, put your energy into those who have
begun to see and risk falling for the "propped up dead" maneuvers
now being employed. Collapse is imminent and unavoidable why are you stuck
there? Nostalgia is fine and great when sitting around the camp fire but
sorry buddy your out front now. It reminds of what my Mom use to say "Everyone
wants to go to heaven but yet they don't want to die" guess what if
there is to be new then the old must pass away. It is time to prepare to
deal what is next in a serious and thoughtful way. You can do that and
write that. You have done as much as you can sounding the whistle but sounding
the whistle will not stop the sinking. Look at what is happening people
are awake (some) but they are falling for the same games, divide and conquer,
immigrants don't belong hmmm heard that about the Italians the Irish, etc.
Political manipulation Tea Party, heard that with all the other populist
machinations. Being awake does you no good if it is too dark for you to
see. Stop arguing the cause and put forth the direction, it's at that stage
now you've got the platform now what? May the force be with you!"
- Strangely, in this regard I just spent the last three
days with an extended family that opened my eyes to just how much of this
country still exists at least in many of its people; (and how much of what
the writer above was trying to get me to see); despite the seeming burial
of all that has literally gone before.
- The family I stayed with consisted of seventeen people
ranging in age from infants to the matriarch of the family. Their occupations
were as varied as could be, but the common denominators all referred back
to honesty and to that sharing which cannot be faked between loved ones.
The course of the lives of these people also covered the full spectrum
in both health and wealth, and yet remained united in that confidence that
comes with doing those things that must be done if there is to be a future
for any of us.
- What the experience brought to center-stage, for me,
was a certain knowledge that this 'family' remembered what the world was
like before we consumed the poison and the brain-washing of the current
situation. Formal religion did not play a part in this. They remembered
what matters and choose daily, to live according to that rudder of civility
and purpose that can bring stability and love back into this troubled and
blood-stained place, which has become what might appear to be the world-of-today.
- I've largely been focused upon far too much of what was
never-learned by the latest generations, forgetting too often that these
principles are innately human and despite whatever any current fad might
dictate; the truth of what is both right and human can never actually be
denied; because despite the propaganda and the psy-ops: It is one thing
to have remembered through family connections what it was like to live
through those times when women did not yet have rights, or when freedoms
were challenged but were not yet publicly denied, or when criminality was
rampant but was still illegal; but it is quite another to choose to live
in this personal freedom. Spending time with people that are determined
to confront the crimes of today's politics and today's emptiness, when
it comes to an inner compass for anyone's existence, was as refreshingly
beautiful as it was potentially possible. Once I began to realize that
this personal power (of theirs) is not only actually within the grasp of
a lot more people than I once thought was even remotely possible-yet this
is one possible way that we still have which might be able to allow us
to change-within-ourselves what we are living in, from the cesspool that
it has become, to the realm of possibilities which such problems ought
to have been brought to the surface long ago.
- This also brought to mind that quietly invisible strength
which is there to be used by anyone who is serious, about actually being
able to make the real changes which we sometimes need, in almost every
area of life today. That strength comes from 'the invisible means of support"
that underpins virtually any life that is being lived in accordance with
having an authentic life; rather than just a long series of wants to be
satisfied, or toys to be acquired.
- The image to the left describes this
phenomena in the fire-line, just below the knee and between the words "RELEASE"
and "Hostage." In this illustration I wanted to physically represent
this key concept that contributes so much to the freeing of any individual
from those self-imposed restrictions by which too many of us still tend
to imprison ourselves.
- And of course there is that other quiet truth that "life
is a mystery to be lived rather than a problem to be solved." These
two things are simple to say but very difficult to live; and yet even without
putting these two thought-forms into any kind of literal equation this
family (apparently among many others as well) is living out the beauty
and the challenges which these concepts have added to their lives, from
the youngest to the oldest among them. As I was returning to this grind
I began to see what they have done, individually and without pre-planning
as a Gyroscope of mental-balance which they have used, intrinsically, as
they go about their very individual lives. This is why I felt the need
to talk more about this a bit more here.
- One of the things that came up over the weekend was the
existence of Indigo or Crystal Children, the existence of which I was basically
- "How do you know if you, or someone you know, is
an Indigo or Crystal Child or Adult?
- We will describe the main features and characteristics
of these people. But we want to stress that the Indigo/Crystal phenomenon
is the next step in our evolution as a human species. We are all, in some
way, becoming more like the Indigo andCrystal people. They are here to
show us the way, and so the information can be applied more generally to
all of us as we make the transition to the next stage of our growth and
- The Indigo Children have been incarnating on the
Earth for the last 100 years. The early Indigos were pioneers and way-showers.
After World War II, a significant number were born, and these are the Indigo
adults of today. However, in the 1970s a major wave of Indigos was born,
and so we have a whole generation of Indigos who are now in their late
twenties and early thirties who are about to take their place as leaders
in the world. Indigos continued to born up to about 2000, with increasing
abilities and degrees of technological and creative sophistication.
- The Crystal Children began to appear on the planet
from about 2000, although some date them slightly earlier. These are extremely
powerful children, whose main purpose is to take us to the next level in
our evolution, and reveal to us our inner power and divinity. They function
as a group consciousness rather than as individuals, and they live by the"
Law of One" or Unity Consciousness. They are a powerful force for
love and peace on the planet.
- The Indigo and Crystal Adults are composed of two
groups. Firstly, there are those who were born as Indigos and are now making
the transition to Crystal. This means they undergo a spiritual and physical
transformation that awakens their "Christ" or "Crystal"
consciousness and links them with the Crystal children as part of the evolutionary
wave of change. The second group is those who were born without these qualities,
but have acquired or are in the process of acquiring them through their
own hard work and the diligent following of a spiritual path. Yes, this
means that all of us have the potential to be part of the emerging group
of "human angels".
- The following extract describes the difference between
Indigo and Crystal Children. It is from Doreen Virtue's article, Indigo
and Crystal Children:
- The first thing most people notice about Crystal
Children is their eyes, large, penetrating, and wise beyond their years.
Their eyes lock on and hypnotize you, while you realize your soul is being
laid bare for the child to see. Perhaps you've noticed this special new
"breed" of children rapidly populating our planet. They are happy,
delightful and forgiving. This generation of new light-workers, roughly
ages 0 through 7, are like no previous generation. Ideal in many ways,
they are the pointers for where humanity is headed ... and its a good direction!
- The older children (approximately age 7 through
25), called "indigo Children", share some characteristics with
the CrystalChildren. Both generations are highly sensitive and psychic,
and have important life purposes. The main difference is their temperament.
Indigos have a warrior spirit, because their collective purpose is to mash
down old systems that no longer serve us. They are here to quash government,
educational, and legal systems that lack integrity. To accomplish this
end, they need tempers and fiery determination.
- Those adults who resist change and who value conformity
may misunderstand the Indigos. They are often mislabeled with psychiatric
diagnoses of Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention
Deficit Disorder (ADD). Sadly, when they are medicated, the Indigos often
lose their beautiful sensitivity, spiritual gifts and warrior energy..........In
contrast, the Crystal Children are blissful and even-tempered. Sure, they
may have tantrums occasionally, but these children are largely forgiving
and easy-going. The Crystals are the generation who benefit from the Indigos
trailblazing. First, the Indigo Children lead with a machete, cutting down
anything that lacks integrity. Then the Crystal Children follow the cleared
path, into a safer and more secure world." There is more at the site
- All in all this was a fascinating turn-of-events, at
least for me. So when I got the note above; I decided to pass along what
might be of a continuing use to a lot more people.
