Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.
Julie: We do greet you, indeed. This is Micciah Channel, and I’m Julie Winter. Micciah is an energy entity who works with me while I’m in trance, and while I’m in the trance state I have access to a point of view that seems to come from a non-physical realm. This series of programs is drawn primarily from videotapes taken during my regular classes. We want to expand our circle, and include your energy and interest in our work.
In today’s session, Micciah is going to introduce the questions, and they include such diverse topics as: how to stay connected with your inner core or your Great Self during time of intesnse stress. What is the nature of competitiveness? And what is the group purpose of those of us born and alive during this time?
Micciah: We greet you dear friends.
You are, all of you, including “this one,” most generous to give your time, to give of yourselves, to give your attention, to this. It is a way of stopping the busyness of life, of the city. It is a way of sharing something that is both precious and useful. And although you sit in a small circle, relatively speaking, the work of all of you is known everywhere, because there is no time or space in consciousness. It is all ever-present.
Now, you have asked about what it means that there is abuse of children and how it is that this is coming into the public eye. You have asked about expanding consciousness, the work to be done, and the way to include others. And you have asked about how to stay centered in such times of disruption, of change. And about your purpose, all of you who have incarnated in this time. What is the song of this century? And what is the nature of competitiveness? So.... In some ways these questions or queries are really threaded together. There are common dynamics in these issues.
To abuse a child, or an animal, or another adult, there must be a profound despair, an enraging despair, and impotence, and fear—horrible, maddening fear. Often it is that the abuser is so severed from the life energies, from the personal connection to the life force, that the child’s very aliveness, or the animal’s very aliveness, is like taunting, you see? The organism that is deadened in this vital connection cannot bear, cannot tolerate, seeing life in the child’s eyes, seeing the child’s vulnerability and need and joy. And there is an overwhelming impulse to tear at the life.
It is coming out into the open because people are prepared at the group level in your country to deal with it. There are cultures where there is no child abuse. It is not really anger. It is deadness in the connection to inner nourishment and satisfaction. It is the greatest despair. And there has been for centuries, perhaps not the abuse of children in the sense you mean, but the slaughter of children. War after war has witnessed these atrocities. Then you come to “what is war?”
And in order to perpetuate a war there needs to be a deadening of this same connection to love, which is so available, so present. But it is here on the earth, playing in the earth realm, that you are given to choose love. No one will choose it for you. No one, no great god, no avatar. It is your choice in your own heart. And when this connection is deadened or is bitten off, then the effect in the world of the physical is wanton violence, always—at least in war—attached to reasonableness. Yes?
We spoke in September of how ideas divorced from feeling and experience are dangerous. So are feelings divorced from ideas dangerous. But it is this particular kind of belief, national pride, j religious conviction which is competitive—MY country!—protective, and fearful, distrustful of the ability to manifest “enough.”
That was the message of the man you call Christ, yes? There is more than enough. And in Shakespeare, “more things in heaven and on earth.” So, all depends on the individual connection with life energy and living experience of life energy, which is love.
And then the group experience, so that each person in this little group and all others has the support of love, of caring, of abundant feeling. And this same connection, when it is broken, enables you to mistreat the earth, the Great Mother. With no experience that you need the earth, the earth doesn’t need you! And for every person who makes the connection to life and keeps it — keeps the flame, the eternal fire — there is a great joy all over the galaxy.
We do not wish you to misinterpret this in a moral sense. This is about the life struggle. It is not nice, very often. It can be a real struggle.
But the battle can be within. It does not have to be projected onto “the enemy.” Who, on this small planet that you all share, can afford not to have peace?
We have an image of this century, to use the time frame: as a tossing ship on a very stormy sea, which is also full of refuse — bottles, orange peels, oil. It is hard to preserve the mythic dignity of the sea in the midst of such behavior. At any rate, the ship is tossing very badly, and some people are screaming, and some people are ill, and some are fighting, and some are trying to right the wheel.
Those of you who work to stay attuned with the life energies are like the ones trying to hold the wheel steady in the midst of the tossing and the turning. And it is hard sometimes not to give it up, hmm? Bad job.
What is the song of this century? It is everything from the music of the Orient to the music of John Cage, to Heavy Metal. So much music! More than there ever was on the face of the earth. All the radios, the televisions, the advertisements.
What is the song? And in the midst of it is perfect silence. If you go down, you will all go down accompanied by music!
Music has great healing power. Sound has great healing power. Crystals have sounds. Bodies have sounds. The organs and cells or the body all have an inner sound.
What is your song? How to stay steady? We would remind you that by steady we don’t mean “blissed out,” but engaged with life and empowered to choose love. To act from the center of the self in the midst of turmoil.
We are having turmoil right here, yes?
The eighteenth century would not have provided such interesting bells, but also not such interesting video. You have great opportunities in this time. You are mobile and free in a way almost unprecedented, unless you go back to Atlantis. You are not free in some ways, but in a deep sense you are always free. You have enormous mobility, great possibilities. As women, you are not bound by an endless chain of birthing and early death. As men, you are beginning to explore the possibilities of feeling, of feeling nature, of intuitive nature. So this is a time of intense transformation and great possibilities. It is an enormous challenge. And that is part of your song.
And what is it to compete? To want to win? Well, to wish to have clear intention as a personal commitment is not the same as beating the other guy out. Winning in the sense of spitefulness does not dignify the self or the other. It can be wonderful to run fast with another person, but not if ego is attached to winning.
So, competition in its negative form reflects attachment and in its—we don’t really like the word negative—least useful form. Competition that arises out of the inner experience of lack, of greed, is simply something that presents itself to be transformed. Competition between nations, of couse, has produced terrible strife. And nations are only people.
Joyful racing is different. You can grow by challenging yourself—not competing with yourself, but challenging where your fears are, where your smallness is, where the lack of generosity comes to you. And that is catching. Other people come along because it seems something is there. The life force is there.
Preaching doesn’t do it. And in sharing your life, and your love, and your work you must also make the other person responsible for theirs. You can’t do it for them. That is always a fake. You really dignify them by the truth, which is that they can only do their work. And you can only do your work. And then you can all work together.
And if you wish to make it personal, what in your life serves life? In serving life, you also acknowledge and encompass death, apparent death, physical death—the beginnings of things and the end of things, the building up and also the tearing down. And what in your life really supports nothing much? Supports your old beliefs, your worn-out habits?
Who will choose, if not you? And what contribution do you make, emotionally, intellectually, energetically, spiritually, personally, in your community, and to the earth? What contribution?
There is so much love available. Love is the great risk. Love. And it exists. Its climate is truth. It is not love, “nice love.” Like the life struggle itself, like the baby struggling to get out, like the trees rattling in an icy wind. It is very complicated. It is all of it. And it is also, simply, just there. Is this clear?
It is a great privilege to share one realm to another, one country to another. We share with all of you much energy and much love. And we bid you a most joyful evening.
Julie: “This channeling is meant to be a spiritual, emotional, intellectual, heartful, mindful journey that I share with another realm, that I share with my classes and that we all share with you. Please go over the material, evaluate it for yourself, and know what it is that you think about it.”
