When Andrea, who is chief moderator of the 2012 Scenario discussion group, poked her head into Dave and Sierra’s radio program, Dave invited her to write an article discussing what the 2012 Scenario discussion group is all about, for new lightworkers who don’t know that community already exists….
Your Invitation Has Arrived
by Andrea Scully
This is your formal invitation to join the 2012 Scenario discussion group.
This group was created by Steve Beckow back on March 3, 2011. The remarkable story of this group is one where the Archangel we know as Michael suggested that there be a group formed, to deal with the enormous amount of comments coming into the articles that Steve had been posting.
The group was to be a place where people could post comments about articles, speak to each other, and share information, experience, and community. It was to be a special place, a special assembly of people with special interests in a safe and sacred environment.
And so, through sacred intent, an entity was born, and named the 2012 Scenario discussion group. This is a ‘group entity’. No one ‘owns’ it. It has a life and characteristics all its own. It has its growth and evolution. It’s a group of great diversity, and yet, watching it will reveal that there’s unity in this diversity.
Like all entities, movement occurs in reaction to stimulus both from internal and external forces. We share both the interesting things we find outside the group and personal experiences from our own lives. We share our opinions, our beliefs, and our life-stories, all this, in a rare environment where we honor each other’s sovereignty as individual Beings.
The diversity of people from all over the world and their personal sharing of stories are the very heart and soul of the group. Like pieces of a cosmic puzzle, none of us has the entire picture, but each has a portion of it.
Many of us have experienced what it’s like in the virtual world of forums before joining this group. It’s amazing how sensitive we are, even in virtual community to those who’d disrupt the harmony of the forum by simply not being willing to play nice with others. This is why so many of us have abandoned other places, still longing for community.
In the virtual realm of the 2012 Scenario discussion group, there are stricter guidelines than are found in many other forums where people gather to talk and share. These are in place to preserve the sacred integrity of the forum.
Because we have guidelines to follow and the love of many dedicated moderators who hold the energy of our space and protect its integrity, there’s an environment where sharing can be done without ridicule or fear. When fears are expressed, they’re met with compassion and positive support from the group.
There’s encouragement to grow into greater spiritual maturity and to accept personal responsibility, as these are the well-worn steps taken on the way to positions of social responsibility as well.
Since the group founder, AA Michael, has said that this forum is to provide training for Lightworkers, to help them prepare for Ascension, and to prepare them to be the leaders in the new paradigm, then it follows that there would be some focus on personal and social responsibility, both as individuals and as a group.
While the guidelines prohibit ‘teaching’ (advising), as in the declaration of ‘absolute knowledge’ or the exclusive promotion of personal beliefs; we do teach one another, and we do help one another. It’s said that the only way to teach is by example and there are some among us who manage to serve as good examples for others, in sharing their personal experiences.
Enter this sacred forum with your best intentions, like you would any other sacred space. Here’s a place where you’re encouraged to be yourself, to bring your authentic self to share with others.
In my view, one of the purposes of this group is to provide the example of how to form a group, and learn to move as a group, in ways that are in alignment with reaching our highest potentials as individuals and Lightworkers. Moving together with Love, mutual moral support, and en-Courage-ment for one another, to expand ourselves, by being willing to keep going deeper and reaching higher, stretching our metaphorical wings.
All who ask to join are welcomed, and only very rarely has there been the need to moderate or exclude anyone from our discussions. I came to the group last fall, and started moderating on November 22, 2011. Less than a handful of problems have been a challenge to the group harmony in all that time.
That it’s possible to have a forum with this unusual harmony is, I believe, traceable back to the fact that our founder is AA Michael. That he watches over us and listens to our conversations, I have no doubt. He has been called ‘The Warrior of Love’.
The 2012 Scenario discussion group is full of love and lovers, warriors of the new paradigm, the paradigm which acknowledges Love as the most powerful force in the Universe and we as its practitioners.
I can speak for many of us in the 2012 Scenario discussion group when I say that we’ve found the family we’ve been looking and longing for. Through the miracle of computers and the internet, from places, both remote, and in the thick of civilization, we’ve found our family from across the planet and recognized one another again. It’s a wonderful reunion; one that would have been considered impossible, and regarded as a miracle, even one generation ago.
I can tell you, from my deepest heart, that being a part of this project has been both profoundly moving and a great honor. It has been more than worth the many hours I’ve put in to it. It has repaid me lavishly with the love and acceptance of family, with the learning, and honing of, the communication skills that are going to be so much in demand going forward. It has deepened my awareness of how many of us there are, all over the surface of the Earth, and it has eased (finally) the terrible long-term longing for those of my ‘kind’.
You’re invited to join us. regardless of where you are or who you are. Bring your piece of the puzzle and share it with us. The great thing about being a part of a group entity is that both the benefits and the burdens are shared among us all. The benefits multiply; the burdens lighten when shared. Even those who are silently sharing the conversations of the rest of us are sharing our energetic signature, the signature of Love.
Just like the advertising jingle from the motel line, “We’ll leave the Lights on”, only this is a whole lot better…
Bring your heart; we’ll be there to welcome you.
Before you join, you will want to consider that there is often heavy posting in our group. The default setting in yahoogroups is individual emails. It is not unusual for me to wake in the morning and find 40 or 50 emails in my inbox. If you wish to avoid this, there are different options. The options are: individual emails, daily digest, and web only.
Individual emails will give you an email for each post. Daily digest will give you an email for every 15 posts, and you will need to scroll down to see the posts which are grouped according to topics or subject line. Web only will mean that to read or post you must go to the homepage to do it.
You may change your settings at any time from the homepage oaf the 2012 Scenario yahoogroup, by looking along the top for the ‘edit membership’ and click it. It opens a page where you can change all your settings.
