MICCIAH CHANNEL: JULIE WINTER
Produced by Jon Child
Transcript of Program 127, 1989 [CC]
Some of Julie’s early work in channel from 1989 where Micciah discusses:
• The impermanence of everything in the dance of duality. Only the “vital force” endures. View Section
• How to help those who suffer in China after the Tiananmen Square protests: Be true to the One; pray for peace; amid suffering, hold the experience of blessing. Young revolutionaries have “strange courage” because they’ve never not known the threat of global destruction. Their voices were heard, but did not prevail as “the thrall of fear ... is too powerful still.” View Section
• For one writing about China who “missed the revolution”: Be guided by intuition to look for and present the theme of unity in “this diverse land.... The quality of it will be haunting.” View Section
Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.
Julie: My Name is Julie Winter, and this program is called Micciah Channel.
And what you are going to see is me, going into an altered state of consciousness, a non ordinary state of awareness. And what I believe happens when I am in that state is that I enter an expanded geography of the self, and that there is an overlap between what I know (my intelligence, my awareness, my experience) and something that is larger than my ordinary awareness. It may indeed be that it is all part of my awareness and that would be fine. What’s produced is a personality that is a product of this overlapping and the personality is called Micciah.
My voice is going to change and it is my own voice. The variations in speech have to do with my being in an altered state.
The program is created from my classes. My students bring questions in. We encourage you to ask questions, to ask questions about channeling, about my channeling, whatever. And use your discernment in evaluating the information that comes through.
Micciah: We greet you all, dear friends.
[Slowly and loudly, in a calling tone, with frequent pauses]
Nothing you are given on this plane of reality can be held forever. Nothing. No thing, no event, no thought rests in place forever.
Within the dance of separation and duality, which is itself a sacred dance, all things — all beings — all planets — are born.... and fade away. It is only the vital force, the matrix and the pulse and the breath of eternity, that holds it all, that endures. All else is impermanent.
Everything you find in nature, everything in your body, is filled with the divine. It represents it in its disguise of impermanence.
[Whisper] So ... [aloud] please. May we have your questions?
Eve: Yes, Micciah; I have a question, please. How can we help the people in China who are caught in this cataclysm?
Micciah: It is available to you to offer ... to serve on a number of different levels and in different ways. When you offer your prayers for peace, when you are able to hold the experience, or create and recreate the experience, of union and blessing in the midst of suffering; when you do not abandon that truth, and you pray and celebrate in its name and in the name of those who suffer, you offer sustenance.
When you act in your own life in a way that represents the One, when you address your relationship with duality knowing that within it dances eternity, you serve all those who suffer.
There are ways of serving directly, in a concrete sense, as when one works with governmental issues, with writing letters, sending money if it is needed, making political statements, and so forth. But you have the idea that ... hm ... you cannot help, because it is hard to perceive that your help matters. Yes? You offer your prayers; you live your life in a way that stops the war (to use Stephen Levine’s phrase). And still the war goes on, does it not — often? So, we say to you, to support each other and to support all beings who offer their lives and the living of their lives for peace. And you can do it in other concrete ways. Whatever comes to you, whatever you can touch, whatever is available that seems correct. Do you understand?
Micciah: More questions about this?
Eve: Thank you, Micciah.
Kayla: In particular, having been stirred up by what’s going on in China (whatever it is that’s going on in China), what — will you discuss — what’s the significance of the fact that especially young people, young adults — often children — are leading revolutions, not only there but around the world; that their voices — you know, in the Middle East and in South Africa, and — and something about — something about the significance of that, and how the young people are oppressed?
Micciah: First of all, you need to put the question of age in a relative context. When the revolution of the United States, that created the United States and separated it from England, came about, the expectation of the linear span was very small relative to what it is now. So there were very young people who were involved in that fighting.
In other historical times there have only been what you would consider (or mostly) quite young people, because many people did not live to be of a great age. However, given that as a context, what does it mean at the moment?
The people who are very young in years in this realm at this time have known, in the focus personality (current personality), ONLY a world wherein, apparently, total destruction is possible. ONLY. They have had NO experience, in the living tissue of that body, that did not include the voice, the incantation, of total annihilation. That is all that has been. Beginning with those children born around the time this one was born, when atomic warfare burst into this reality, that has been increasingly a possibility; and then it expanded enormously, because in the time of that many years (forty-four, -five years) the globe has shrunk considerably. You are living in a tiny family! A very small planet! And you are now conscious of that — yes? It is in the dance of duality.
And so these ones have felt strongly pressed, in their dreaming, to heal, to change. And they are given strange courage, because they have always lived with a chorus of potential annihilation of the PLANET. (There has always been — almost always, in this plane — possibility of annihilation through plague, through massacres, through many things. But not the planet.) So they live with the seed-form of that idea in the dance of their duality, and it has pressed them to — into the yearning. And the ones in China were pressed in their collective dreaming to call the possibility of such a dream into being.
You know, it organized itself — (foof! foof! foof!) [three quick, semi-voiced puffs] — here, there, everywhere! Not like in an American organization, with people communicating by computer and organizing all over the country. It was, really, sprouts in consciousness that organized very quickly and came together through group dreaming. And they want to offer the possibility of peace.
And still, the tuning — the attuning — the trance, the thrall of group fear, within China itself as within many, many other countries, is too powerful still. Still. But the voices were heard. The point is made — even though the seed is not yet holding in the environment of the duality. It is not yet strong enough, in its dreaming of love, to keep that seed.
Do you understand?
Students: Yes. Yes.
Micciah: And many of them knew when they entered — those who have died, left their bodies in this crush, knew in their mythic selves, in their dreaming selves, that they would, ah — do this.
And it is (we don’t like the word “test”) — it is a PUSH for all of you — all of you! — not to lose your faith. Because there will be much more — much more — coming, in this struggle to seed the planet with ACTIVE love. There is always love; it doesn’t go anywhere. It needs to be claimed and nurtured and tended in the living of your life.
[Pause] Hmm.... More will come in China. More turmoil ...
Kayla: Thank you.
Micciah: Please continue.
Pamela: Coming from this topic it seems a little personal, except that I’m in a position to have to write about my trip, now, to China. And I’m concerned, given my experience of it (which was really missing the revolution), but — what —
Micciah: Well, you did not plan to be there, you know; you did not even see it! You (whisht!) —
Pamela: I did not see it.
Micciah: It is a wonderful example of the complex nature of the physical realm [with a laugh].
Pamela: What do you mean?
Micciah: That something can be right there, and if you have no plan to participate in it —
Pamela: Oh. Oh. Hmm. I see. But — in my having the opportunity to be a voice for something —
Micciah: [Whisper] Yes ...
Pamela: — in this situation — quite, I guess, karmically — what would be the best tack for me to take, considering — in regard to — how I could be most helpful by the time the article comes out, not knowing what will happen in China; but something that will contribute to some kind of union?
Micciah: Yes.... To look for the theme of union in what you experience, so that ... as one would present a theme musically that has a haunting quality, even though the notes of the piece are diverse. (Muzak is not particularly haunting. It may be plaguing, but —
— it is not haunting.) You can create a piece that presents ... the threads of unity, and the voices calling for, ah — exuberance, and the exultation of a country that has endured much, and for many, many, many years, unbroken in its dreaming identity.
The United States — you know, countries are a fiction.
The United States was — the land was here long before it was called “The United States.” But the entity of a culture, of a land, is an enacting in the physical of a principle in the luminous. And one of the principles of China, like the Middle East, is endurance.
It is a country that has had enormous opposites: great wealth and crushing poverty; philosophies that indeed reflect the mystery of the Great One, that strum the chord of universal wisdom, and also cultural aberrations that enable them to kill, to be sadistic with life. Enormous extremes, enduring for many, many earth-years in the dream of a single culture.
The United States is very, very different.
So — when you think of what you are constructing with your article, it can be the voice of your experience of unity in this diverse land that has endured, and endured and endured. And the quality of it will be ... haunting, rather than pounding or drumming or whatever.
Pamela: I think I understand. Thank you.
Micciah: You are most welcome! It will be a wonderful article. And you will see, Pamela — you will put in things guided by your intuition, and your intuitive perceptions combining with your physical experiences, that will render it timely even though you don’t know what is going to happen between now and the time it appears. [Pause]
[Aloud] We do thank you very much for your questions, for your inquiry, for your love.
And we bid you a very good ... day.
Julie: That’s the end of this particular segment... of this particular adventure. And 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.
