Transcript of Program 73, 1987

Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1987 where Micciah discusses:
Cruelty and victimization in the family: This happens as a result of deep fear, on the part of the parents, of the child’s aliveness and vitality. Victims and perpetrators, at a level of deep consciousness, agree to play these roles to “penetrate through the distortions and the cruelty” to the truth of safety. We are still responsible for service, compassion and the healing of cruelty. Global cruelty is a magnification of the violent impotence that causes family cruelty. View Section

   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.


   Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends. Let us go on to your questions.

   Maxine: Micciah, I would like to know how we choose to be victims within a family context. What are they? Group agreements, or individual decisions made?

   Micciah: So. When you have the unit of a family, how does it come to be that one person, one child perhaps, appears as the victim, the scapegoat? And in a less obvious sense, how do the members of a family victimize each other? Through their beliefs, through their apparent cruelties, et cetera. This is what you are asking, yes?

   Maxine: Umhuh.

   Micciah: Well, the keynote of distortions in family behavior is fear. Fear that has a stranglehold on the parents so that when they contemplate the vulnerability and the liveliness of a child they are terrified of that vibrancy. Fear that acts as a contraction in the being and prevents love from flowing, from being present, and from being expressed. And that dancing of fear, which is a separation, you see, from the experience of being the source, of being at one with love, shows its face, the fear shows its face, the dance exposes itself on many levels, from very subtle psychological manipulation to gross distortions, violence towards children, violence of adults toward each other. So you say, “Well, yes, all right. But why?”
   When a fragment, a portion, of the great self, or the wise self, or whatever you would like to call it, the soul comes into existence, when you come into physical existence you bring with you the possibility of choice, the secret. [pause] And at any moment in what you conceive of as linear time, you can choose to fall into the truth about your source. Some schools of teaching say, “No you can’t, you need a guru, you need one who has gone before, a teacher who is the living experience of that falling.” We say no, you have the print within you, and as long as it exists in the universe, you have access to it. You don’t have to be physically confronted, nose to nose, with someone who does this.
   So what is the point of this? The point of this is that when you fall into that enormous compassion and holding and ruthlessness, the rising and falling of circumstances cease to be so threatening. It does not mean that the personality, when confronted with danger or with biological death or with harm, doesn’t reverberate. But it means that you are empowered to know that no matter what the circumstance, you are safe. And when you know that, then your beingness in the world is transformed.

   Julie: Okay, stop for a moment and pay attention to what your response is to the information that’s just been channeled. Does it seem to be comfortable, right and appropriate for you? Would you like to think about it further? What does your body feel like right now? What is your breath like right now?
   And now we’re going to go back and do some more channeling.

   Micciah: So in some ways you agree — this is very complicated — you agree to play the part of the violator, both in a family context and maybe in a greater context. And you agree to play the part of the violated, knowing at some level that that is not the truth of your being. And challenging yourself to penetrate through the distortions and the cruelty.
   Do you understand so far? We used the analogy once of knowing. You know when you have a horrible dream, a dream full of violence, and you wake up in the morning and you say, “Oh, it was only a dream. I was safe all along.” So we say to you, this, this is also dreaming. And you are safe all along. And that does not relieve you of the responsibility of service. You hear this, yes?
   That does not mean, at least from our point of view, that it is all right to say, “Oh, well, we’re safe all along. Then nothing to be done, not to worry.” Your inner journeying, which carries you into the experience of that magnificent compassion that was always hiding behind the circumstances of destruction, that journey is your responsibility. And it takes effort. It takes discipline. It is joyful, and it takes work! That is your responsibility. It is a challenge you set for yourself in every incarnation. And when you see in the dream of this dream that there is cruelty, it really does not serve you to say, “Not I! I’m not a cruel person.” Because in the fiber of the body of the dream, in the multiplicity of the threads of the dream, you are the dreamer and the dream, and you are all parts of it. And the personality self leaps too far and sabotages the whole thing. “Well, then I must save the world!”
   Well, how will you do that? “I must heal the violence in this part of the world and in the prisons and in my own family.” You can only begin here. We should not say “only.” You can begin here. And you can begin there, and there, and there and there. And, uh, you can make a commitment to do some kind of service in the world. Takes work. “Oh it’s a bore, it’s a lot of effort. And besides, it doesn’t mean anything.” You know the hopelessness.... In the global communications that you have created, you are more dramatically aware of hopelessness than ever before in linear time. Because it’s not just the violence of the family or your tribe against someone else’s tribe. You hear about China and Russia and South America all in one morning news announcement. Enh! [laughter] You do magnificently that you don’t give up all together.

   Julie: Okay. Again, I’ve just done a chunk of channeling. Stop for a moment and pay attention to what your internal response is to what you have just seen and heard. What do you feel like with this information? How do you see it? How does the hearing of it strike you personally? Notice your breathing. Notice the way your body feels. Okay. Now we’re going to go back to the rest of the program.

   Micciah: So, what are we saying? That you need to make a commitment that you can take care of. And then be responsible to it. You can give your time, you can give your money, you can give your prayers. Even knowing that you will not heal it all. And that you are indeed responsible for your service. And your own inner spiritual work, far from being a narcissistic involvement, is the living contribution of your being, because when the veils drop away from your eyes, then the dynamic, palpable “who” of who you are emerges in a new way. Think of a family. What is the difference between people being locked into their fear, locked within the carapace of their own misgivings, unable to touch, to hold each other, to comfort each other, to celebrate with each other, and people who look into each other’s eyes and say “I love you.” It’s an enormous difference.
   So, please continue. Perhaps you have bit off more than you want to chew with this session.

   Linda: Micciah, it really seems to me as if you’ve answered my question, because my question was an extension of the cruelty within families to the cruelty that seems so evident all over the planet and why it is so prevalent today. But you really have connected it all to what I experience as this enormous fear. And you have suggested ways that we can alleviate it, by starting with ourselves. So unless you have anything more to say on it, you really have taken care of the question.

   Micciah: Well, we would like to say, yes, that the global cruelty is a magnification. It is all the same cruelty. When a parent is so disconnected from comfort, from inner sustenance and from outer support, and they are so tormented with pain that they beat their children, this comes from a truly insane, a frantic, insane, rageful, and helpless distortion. You think of violence as aggressive, but it is an aggressive symptom rooted in impotence. People who feel empowered are not violent people. When a being is in such torment that all they can find to release the pressure is to beat a child, that is the same violence that causes the desperate fear of nations to beat each other. Nations look much more rationalized, yes? “No, no, it is economic theory, you see? And we cannot let them take over our fields, our produce, our jobs.” It is rationalized. But it is the same gnawing, explosive impotence. Otherwise why not say, “You are my body, you over there in Russia, over there in South America.” The bodies of the starving children, or the beaten children. You think it is not your body because you live in the illusion of separation. We are saying to you, it is your body. And you are responsible for your life. And you are not responsible — this is important — you are not responsible for healing the whole planet at once because you cannot do that. It will take everyone’s cooperation. You see, this is the delicate point, it goes back and forth. Hopelessness. “Oh well, what I do doesn’t count.” But it does count. Every drop counts. And then there is the guilt of the personality. “I am a bad person, I’m not doing more.” So how can you use your will in a compassionate way, compassionate toward yourself? How can you keep to your responsibilities in a gentle and compassionate way? And fulfill what are your responsibilities in the great privilege of being here in this realm?
   I have one more thing to say about torture. When you tor... Torture is torture. You think torture in South America is different from torture in your family. And it is only in a matter of degree. It comes from the same, the insanity of fear. So...
   We will leave you now. We do thank you. In the relationship amongst the realms, you are loyal ambassadors. You think that “this one” channels, but all of you sitting together create this.
   We share with you much love, and we bid you a very good day.


   Julie: I want to remind you that the channeling that I do with Micciah is really an ongoing exploration; in watching and listening, you’re part of the exploration. So the work is here and it is our intention to share it with those of you who watch. You need to evaluate it for yourselves, to go over the information, to assess what feels right to you, use what feels right and let the rest go.

   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.”
