Kathleen and I notice that we’re meeting with two kinds of groups.
One is building the foundation and superstructure for the work of constructing Nova Earth.
You can think of this group as raising a building. Let me call it a vertical group in light of that image.
A second group is expanding our knowledge and experience in a definite area, field, or domain of knowledge.
Wally Johnston’s parapsychology group in Portland and Terry Andrews’ women’s group on psychic development in Cannon Beach are examples of the second kind of group. Let’s call it a horizontal group.
Both are part of the work of Ascension and both do different work. The first group includes foundations that finance what will be occurring, organizations that chronicle and promote what’s transpiring, etc.
The second group includes groups that raise awareness of the new truths and the “new normal.” For instance, Terry in her group is practising higher-dimensional ways of running a group. The group itself is emerging from old-paradigm into new-paradigm ways.
This second type includes groups that expand the meaning of humanness or penetrate deeper and deeper into what it means to be human.
We discussed the stages of group development and I saw that the old ways one would talk about a group’s development don’t apply to a group such as Terry was running.
We discussed relationships and realized that we could no longer talk about them either in the cut-and-dried, narrow ways that we might have even a decade ago.
Two women at a smaller gathering at Liz’s house the night before were discussing education and again what they were discussing was very far ahead of what would be regarded as the norms in education today. The children they taught learn differently and are much more gifted than past generations.
We know why that is. Starseeds are coming in, destined to lead the rest of us. Some already are, like Stephen in Santa Cruz and Miguel in San Diego.
Several women had children who were ahead of the curve and took over the job of leading the family much earlier in life than children do.
Nancy and Liz had radical ideas on education – radical, that is, in terms of the school system as I knew it. If a person read aloud when she read in her classes, Nancy allowed that.
Other teachers (such as those who taught Liz) criticized the student who read aloud when reading as being disruptive.
If a person could not hear or read by sitting still, Nancy allowed them to walk around the room, realizing that they could only learn this way.
If a student couldn’t look at you because doing so caused sensory overload, Nancy allowed that too. She looked at how they learned, and, where it diverged from the norm, she allowed it.
I tried to persuade Nancy to put down on paper the way she taught. I hope I succeeded.
And I tried to persuade Terry to post a series of links on community-development projects and practices. And to write up some of what she’s discovering as she teaches Fifth-Dimensional ways of being.
Back to the group. One woman – Doreen – lives a great deal of her life in the Fifth Dimension, is propelled there when she channels and doesn’t want to come back. She sidled over to me during the meeting and delivered a message that I was to relax whatever it was that was holding me back. I replied that long ago I used to feel foolish because my ways of being were not well received. She said that “they” said I needed to drop that now.
Often Doreen burst out laughing during the meeting over something the higher dimensionals (usually Michael) said to her and would need to be coaxed to tell us the joke, after which we howled too.
One of the most notable quotes I heard during this visit was a propos of the humor we enjoyed. Terry said that laughter was carbonated holiness. We fizzed and effervesced all day. I never thought of that as a form of praying together but, hey, maybe it is.
The people who actually set down their ideas and send them in will join Cait McWhir who’s looking at the profiles of some of the lightworkers we’ve met on our journey.
They’ll join several other lightworkers in San Francisco particularly who just may chronicle their revolutionary work in quantum mechanics, workable relationships, taking back the streets with music to end neighborhood shootings, and so on.
We discussed the notion of missions. And let me look at that in Part 2 so I give you a breather.
