In our blog, you’ll find information about metaphysics and spirituality from Lazaris and Jach, excerpts from Lazaris recordings and interviews, and travelogues from Jach’s adventures around the world.
A Decade is Ending . . .
A decade is ending. That’s not too exciting; it happens every ten years. But as this decade ends I am caught up in I don’t know what. Nostalgia, curiosity, wonderment, mystery, I don’t know, but whatever it is, it’s a nagging feeling that demands my attention.
Lazaris has often called the first two decades of the new millennium, “the two most exciting decades in the history of humankind on Earth.” The 1990s was the most monumental but these two are the most exciting.
I have found that Lazaris says some of the most significant things in what seems the simplest ways. For example, I often think back to one among the many culminating weekends called Earth Changes. It was from a dozen years ago. Lazaris talked of how we were standing on a pinnacle; he spoke again of our pinnacle in the last few months of this year. During that weekend Lazaris spoke about a future of so many things that seemed farfetched and unbelievable, and yet we are experiencing and living them now: increased threats of terrorism, “terrorism blackmail,” national and global economic fragility — an economic “house of cards,” genuine threats of climate change, and a war of civility in the United States. It’s chilling.
Against that backdrop, I think of the simple phrase: The most exciting decades in the history ... What does that mean?
I don’t think the coming years will be without excitement; they certainly won’t be dull. I don’t think there will be less chaos or less turbulence. Probably more. In the future there may be decades that will replace these two as the most exciting, but I think something or many things have happened in the last 20 years that are beyond our capacity to evaluate and beyond our capacity to understand. It feels to me that there are small things, things that to us seem insignificant or even silly, that in time, will have profound impact on us and on the worlds we create. Profound impact, impact that ripples to the edges of space-time. I feel it; I feel it in my bones.
I think about smart phones and the internet and economic development in Asia and 3-D printing and the virtual middle class and expanding scientific revelations and growing social media and shifting global power and autocracy and climate change and cultural memes and baby boomers and millennials and somewhere in the mix, somewhere in the chaos, something magical is happening that I don’t understand — that I can’t possibly understand — and that I don’t and can’t understand doesn’t matter. It’s happening. And it’s happening big.
I think that something that is still hiding in all the chaos and turbulence and violent and injustice is why these are the two most exciting decades in the history of humankind on Earth. We just don’t know it yet.
I am willing to have that be that way, and I am going to create it that way. As I leave this year and this decade behind, I look to 2020, but more importantly, I look to the coming new decade. What we are creating is more than a year can hold; it’s more than a decade can hold. But I look to the decade until I can look farther.
And of this third decade of the millennium? I am not waiting for its name or its fate. Rather than waiting, instead, I’m choosing and I’m deciding. For me, this new year is going to be the beginning of a decade of satisfaction. Not of complacency or of settling, but a decade of fulfillment. Undaunted by the chaos, 2020 is the first year of a decade of creating and fulfilling my wishes, desires, and dreams. It’s the initiating year that inspires and sparks clearer visions — 2020 visions — of my newer new world.
And there was something that happened during these first two decades of the new millennium, maybe in the last few years, that makes them the most exciting in our history. I just know it.
Now to me, that’s thrilling and exhilarating. Beautiful.
(Editor's note: Lazaris refers to the decade from 1990 through 1999 as the most monumental decade in the history of humankind on Earth.)
So often we have said that this decade -- the one that you are midway through even as we speak -- is the most important, the most monumental, decade in the history of humankind upon your earth. Even as monumentally important as other decades have been, this one is absolutely the most important, because it is in this decade that you, individually and then collectively, will decide the future of your Planet Earth. You will decide whether there will be a future or not. Though you will not implement that decision in this decade, this is the decade in which the decision, the choice, will be made.
Please hear that. You will not implement the decision in this decade. Despite what so many are telling you -- despite what many will tell you as the remaining years of this decade unfold -- you will not implement your decision in this decade. Neither nightmare nor dream is going to manifest within the next five years. Though both will be more available and reflections of each will be more visible, neither will manifest yet. As we have often said, even though many will choose no future, as reflected in a three-dimensional world as nightmare or mediocrity, most will choose a powerful and positive future -- a potent future as reflected in your dimensional world as The Dream. You will choose The Dream.
It is important to remember -- amid all the fearful rhetoric of doom and gloom, which too many are too quick to spout -- that the problem is not that there is no future: The problem is that there is a future, and you are responsible for creating it. You are responsible for making it a positive future of dreams filled with plenty of magic and miracles. It is up to you, individually and then collectively.
One voice, whether heroic, lyrical, or sacred, does matter. Though one voice may not be able to create it all for everyone, one voice can begin as other voices join in and rise to the occasion. Then many voices can complete what one voice began. But it has to begin, and it does begin, with you. Nothing changes until you do. We know it sounds like a cliche? or a platitude. Yet, in this decade, it is truer than it has ever been.
So many are ready to give up on your planet. So many are willing to fully entertain -- even to eagerly anticipate -- the end and a miserable and agonizing death: the death of humankind. The death of Earth. Don't give up.
Do not give up. There is a positive future of dreams. More, it can be yours. However, you have to choose it. It will not be delivered to you because you are a good little metaphysician or such a pure spiritual being. Your Higher Self, your Soul and Spirit, even God/Goddess/All That Is (or whatever you call the Divine) will not live your life for you, and they will not make your decision for you. They can help you -- they can intervene in the process -- but they will not do your life for you. You have to make the choice. Then they will be right there for you, filled with all kinds of love and all kinds of healing. You have to ask. You have to ask.
Do not give up. Make a decision and a choice. Make it consciously, or as consciously as you can. And then ask. Ask for more love and for more healing so that you might implement and manifest your decision and choice with greater ease, elegance, and excellence.
Beyond making the most important choice humankind will ever make, there are other issues that both make this decade so vital and that contain the seeds of lessons to learn.
We offer two examples. First, the control of the past has ended its grip -- its sometimes tyrannical, sometimes suffocating grip -- upon you and upon your reality. All the while the influence (not the control, but the influence) of the future is ever-increasing. Though the past still exists (we are not talking of memory loss here), its control upon you has been loosening for years. Now it has let go. The future, which has always been ultimately at the core of causation, has always been more influential than most would willingly admit or would dare think. Its influence is becoming more visible and more viable.
Part of the loosening of the past has resulted from the psychological work and, of course, the metaphysical and spiritual work you have been doing. Beyond that, the controlling hold of the past has now let go. Yes, there are those who will insist that the past is still a noose around their necks or a binding about their hands and feet. Many will insist that they are still prisoners of their past. However, more and more it is going to become apparent that it is they, not the mysterious wardens of the past, who are keeping themselves in prison. As they grip the bars of the past, demanding to be free, their tight grip holding the door shut will be the only grip that is there.
Part of the increasing influence of the future has resulted from the same psychological work and, even more so, from your metaphysical and spiritual work. It is not long into the realization that you create your own reality (and that you can become more and more conscious of that creation) that you begin to suspect the powerful role of the future. In time, you come to discover the incredible potency of the future.
The idea that you are an expression of who you are becoming, far more than you are a reflection of who you have been, is becoming truer and truer. You do not have to be at sufferance of your past. You can joyously embrace the future and see what it holds for you. More, you can actively and eagerly create new futures -- never-before-dreamt, never-before-imagined futures -- that can generate transforming and transcending growth, change, and evolution, and that open to a bounty of abundance filled with untold treasures of happiness and success. We do not speak in hyperbole here. We speak more literally than you know; more literally than you will let yourselves believe just yet.
Lessons? Learn to release your own past. Do not just continue to process it and process it over and over. Learn to release it. End your imprisonment to the messages, patterns, thoughts, feelings, and events that are your past. If you want to keep the same players (continue to relate to the same people), then find new roles for them and for you to play. You can still spend time with your family and with past friends, but find a new way to relate. For example, let your mother be a woman, and let your siblings be men and women. Let them be contemporary people with a future rather than remembered people with a past.
Lessons? Learn to work with the future. Learn to retrieve power from futures that may be dark and destructive, and learn how to use that power to create light and constructive futures that perhaps do not even exist right now. Learn how to lace the future with possible and actual dreams, desires and expectations. Learn to throw futures that will generate a mysterious, but no less effective, resonance that will produce amazing success. Space and time do not allow us to elaborate on the precise techniques of actually working with the future. However, let yourself ponder and savor the possibility. Let yourself consider: There are techniques that you have not yet begun to learn. There is so much out there that you do not yet understand and that does not yet make sense to you. But you do not always have to be someone who already knows. You can be someone who is about to know. You can be someone who is about to discover something new and exciting.
Pondering, savoring, and patiently sitting with these ideas will be a beginning. You will have begun working with the future.
Secondly, the ever-present evolution of human consciousness has, itself, changed. Succinctly, you are in the midst of an evolution that involves the very human species itself. This very physical evolution is more critical than when you developed your prehensile thumb, more important than when you first stood erect. It is big. Very big. Bigger than you yet know.
Now there are many who are picking up hints and clues of this evolution of species about which we speak. However, they are having problems translating what they sense into a workable and thus accurate understanding of what is really happening. Aware of this species evolution, they are thinking in linear terms. They are applying a chauvinistic or consensus logic and reason to what they sense. Thus you hear many talking about cranial enlargement (harkening back to the science fiction of the 1950s), about increased or decreased chromosomes, about DNA with any number of strands other than the double-helixed two that are already present, and about the next generation of human beings with superhuman academic capacities. Perhaps they mean well, but these are not the real changes that are afoot.
Your brain is a hologram created by your mind -- created by a more real self. The hologram of brain, in turn, generates the hologram of body and the hologram of three dimensions of space placed in one dimension of time. Your 3-D world is an illusion -- a very powerful and sometimes very painful illusion, an illusion that from inside it seems more real than anything. But it is still an illusion. You know this.
As a species, you have been calibrated and have calibrated yourself to experience reality in a certain way -- in the consensus way. Part of that calibration is to see the past and not the future. Part of it is to see through chauvinistic eyes and listen with chauvinistic ears, regardless of your gender. We are not meaning eyes and ears that think women are less than, though chauvinism still includes such archaic concepts for some. We mean the eyes and ears that can only think in either/or terms, or that think only in linear logic and reason, or that think in terms of singular supremacy rather than in ideas of cooperation.
Part of this calibration is to think that everything has to be fixed before it can change, rather than realizing that the lessons of the future -- of the millennium that is dawning -- are not about fixing. They are about changing.
In 1979 we said that the future is not about cleaning the old floor. It is about creating a new floor. You are moving into a new world. No, not a new order to an old world. You are moving into a new world.
To succeed, the human species must evolve the hologram of the brain. Simply put: You cannot watch color television on a black and white set. You cannot even see the dream and the new world with the current cranial hologram. You need a new hologram, and your mind is in the midst of evolving one.
Lessons? The old ways of growing and changing simply do not work. Those ways are too dependent upon discipline, admonishment, and criticism. Far too many are dependent upon harsh punishment. Though such techniques (except punishment which we have never condoned) have their place and their effectiveness, they have reached the point of diminishing returns. It is not about more discipline, more admonishment, or harsher criticism. It is about more love and more healing. It is about receiving. To survive into the future, it is important to do these new things more elegantly and with greater excellence. More love. More healing. More receiving.
Lessons? Be willing to stretch into the unknown -- into what you do not understand and into what does not make sense. More of who you really are is made up of what you do not understand about yourself than is made up of what you do understand. Even though you do not know where you are going, be willing to go there anyway. These are lessons of courage, of perseverance, of conviction. These are lessons of character, human character and spiritual character.
Each of you has ideals, goals that you reach for but will never fully realize. Even so, you are a better person for the stretch. And with those ideals you have certain principles -- rules that you align with in such a way as to lead you to, or to bring you closer, to those ideals. For example, you may have an ideal of seeking perfect love. Though you will never reach it, you are a better person for having tried. Along with this ideal, you may have a principle or two about honesty and fidelity.
Against this backdrop, character is the consistency and the frequency with which you apply or adhere to your principles. Many people claim the principles of honesty and fidelity. But if a person only applies or adheres to those principles when it is easy or convenient, they lack character. No matter how lofty their ideals nor how honorable their principles, if they only apply and adhere to them when it serves their self-interest, they lack character. Vise versa, obviously.
The lessons are also about character. Can you adhere to your ideals and principles? Are you willing and able to stand tall? Are you willing to take a stand upon your ideals and upon your principles? Are you willing to take a stand upon your beliefs and upon the highest truth? The current highest truth: You create your own reality by causing and by allowing, and you can become more and more conscious of your creation.
Are you willing and able to take a stand, to stand upon your beliefs and your highest truth? Are you willing to reach even higher? Are you willing to reach for a higher highest truth? Are you willing to reach for more liberating and illuminating beliefs?
This is the mark and measure. These are some of the issues and lessons. As you can respond (be responsible) and as you can receive (be receptive), you will make your maps, and you will dream and then weave your dreams. You will create visions and make realities like have never been made before.
You will found a new spirituality -- not find something that is already there, but rather be a founder of a new spirituality. And with it you forge a new world. Yes, you will.
Once, so long ago, as a new kind of human -- as a human being -- you stood up and discovered a world all around you. You discovered a world that was there all along. Now it is time to stand up a second time -- to stand up as a new kind of human being - as a god-being -- and to discover a new world all around you. However, this time it is to discover a world that has never been.
We love you.
With love and peace ...
A Question with Jach's Reply from an Online Conference
Q: Jach, how do you best vision what you want in an unknown future? I found it becomes increasingly harder to imagine what I/the world would want in 5/15/25 years. I need that juice to want, but if I don't know what, it is weak.
JACH: Is it weak? No. I don't think so. [s] Now to the question. I think the best way to work with visioning the future is to be aware that there are several different kinds of futures, just as there is an entire array of potential futures already out there:
There are pipeline futures, futures that are already in alignment and in the process of coming into manifestation. Some of these are beautiful, and some are ugly, and there are a bunch between beautiful and ugly. They might be futures that have been seeded with pieces of our past.
For example, if I hold a belief that I was never loved as a child, and I will never really be loved by anyone -- if I hold it that nothing has come easily, that it's always been a struggle and I don't expect it to be any different in the future -- if I think that so many people in my family have been sickly and have had major health concerns - then Pipeline Futures of being rejected or abandoned in love, more struggle, or illness could be coming my way.
Seeds of the past become the fodder of the futures that will be possible. There are fantasy futures that are simply there to hold a resonance. There are Beacon or Radiant Futures that are drawing us toward them, but are never going to manifest. They aren't supposed to manifest. They are only there to inspire us to become more.
So I think visioning begins with working with Pipeline Futures and Beacon Futures.
Oh, there are also Optimal and Optimum Futures. [s]
Anyway, this is what I do:
1. I begin with Pipeline Futures. I take inventory of what clinkers from my past are still making noise in my present. What beliefs are outmoded or inconsistent with who I am? What attitudes, thoughts, feelings -- you get the picture -- are still lingering in my reality? I think, meditate and follow the thread of the clinker into the future. I find it in the pipeline knowing it's on the way to my world. Yikes. I then disarm that future. I take my energy back and disconnect it. I use my imagination. I ask for help. I ask for healing.
2. I continue working with the Pipeline Futures by looking for the "beautiful noise" that comes from my past. I look for the beliefs, thoughts, feelings, realizations, and even the successes, and I listen for the function and for the beauty of those things. Those are also seeds in the pipeline. I go there and give the energy that I have taken from the "bad seeds" to the good ones. I augment and embellish the positive Pipeline Futures. Those two steps I find important for clearing away what can obscure and for embellishing and honing what can illuminate. Then ...
3. I turn to my Beacon Futures. What are those? I don't know. So I "make them up." [s] That is, I imagine them. I dream. I daydream. For example, I have a Beacon Future where I am nicely very old and sitting in a wonderfully comfortable chair reading, reading novels of my favorite authors like Virginia Wolfe or Hemingway. I see the room filled with books on shelves and piled on tables. The light is diffuse. I'm not sure what "diffuse" even means. [s] I see my desk where I will sit down to write after I am done reading for the morning. See, I just imagine these sorts of things because these are the sorts of things that speak to me from my Soul. What they do is create a resonance.
4. Then I sit in the resonance and absorb it. I breathe in that resonance. I don't question it. I don't evaluate it. I just accept it, and then I surrender to it. I surrender my sense of separateness, and I become the resonance.
5. Now, through the eyes of resonance, I open to what's there. Is it an entire future laid out before me? No. It's a glimpse and then perhaps nothing more. It's a fleeting thought or feeling or an idea that pops up, and, admittedly, sometimes it's nothing at all. But then in the days or weeks that follow, I dream it. I think it. I feel it. Or someone says something, and I catch it.
6. I embrace whatever comes, vivid or vague. This step is important to me. I need to just hold it without judging it and without deciding what to do with it. I just hold it.
7. I do another meditation: I call it my "This or Better" Meditation. See, I think back to what my life was like 15 years ago ... when I was 50. I look back to 11 years ago when I was 54. What future did I vision then? The form of it isn't anything I would have or could have imagined. But the current reality is so much more than I could have imagined. I couldn't have visioned this as a future. I couldn't have seen what I have now. But as I live my current life, the function that I visioned 15 years ago, the function behind the images I imagined, the function behind the futures I pretended or made up -- that function is here. The service, the inspiring, the loving, the being loved, the laughter, the exploration, the adventure, the functions were hidden in the "made it up, pretended" and imagined. And those functions have taken form here. I continue to make it up and pretend, and deeper more meaningful functions will be there, even if the wonderfully comfortable chair and all those books and my writing desk are not.
That's what I think is the best way to vision the future. I would suspect if the images weren't too clear ... [s] Weak? No, I think it's mightily strong to know without certainty. [s]
Well, that was longer than I expected. [s] Thanks for asking. It gave me an opportunity to organize my thoughts around this.
(Though this first Q&A is from an Online Conference prior to the 2008 Presidential election, Jach's response is as timely now as it was then.)
Q: Lazaris has talked so much about how the new world will really be a new world and not an old world that is fixed, and I wonder what specifically to program for. Is it most effective to program for the resonance that we want, like the resonance of goodness, truth and beauty and a government free of corruption? Or for specifics, like this upcoming Presidential election?
Jach: As I read your question, a couple of thoughts come to mind. ... Give me a minute, and they might come to my fingertips as well. [g]
First, the new world is now destined to be. It's not an ideology or an ideal, as Lazaris has been pointing out recently. But we are just now entering the liminal years or the years in between our current world and the new world. They are still "worlds" apart.
There is a lot that will be happening in these next two decades that the liminal years will comprise. First, there are the building years that make up the next ten years, and then, well, I don't know what then.
But 2018 is the time of birthing the new world, isn't it? The year 2006 is the end of the current chromatic cycle, and it will begin the birthing process in earnest, as I understand it. And then the next twelve-year chromatic octave (2006 to 2018) will be when the new world is born and begins its infancy. So there is a while yet. [g]
So I think we do program things like the Presidential election and the political landscape in America. I think we continue working with dismantling and disarming the negativity and with awakening that tri-polar energy becoming a uni-polar force. I think we continue to focus on the daily magic as expressed personally, nationally, and internationally. And I think we work, not to fix and to cure, as Lazaris would point out, but to change and heal the world we have. I think that is what we do in the liminal years.
And then, I think we work on visualizing the miraculous states and the transcendent states as the way the world will be. I don't know about visualizing for a non-corrupt government, for example. Maybe that's right. Maybe that's right for some of us. But what is government going to be like in the new world? I just don't know.
I am not naive enough, to think that there will be no government or that there will be ideal government, but I really have no clear images. I mean, the images I can currently hold are a government that is a fixed or cured one. I don't really know what a changed and healed one would look like. See what I mean?
Also, Lazaris has been talking about the miraculous states and about transcendent states a little too often for me to ignore that. I started a new thread about working with our unconscious, and one of the keys to successfully harnessing the power of our unconscious has to do with the vision of transcendent states. And it is integral to allowing the Other to be mystical -- to be the Mystical Other. It is part of the collage of energy for healing our magic. It is part of our unstoppable power of magic. And beyond that, Lazaris is saying it a lot. That's a clue, as far as I am concerned.
So I tend to visualize a world in which things happen beyond expectation and imagination and a world in which people consciously talk about that. I see a world where life supersedes and surpasses itself and a world in which people notice that and are excited about it. I see a world where people are hopeful because they see that life is superseding itself and maybe their lives can do that, too. And they are talking about it openly.
I think what I am saying here is that I am visualizing that the current miraculous states become the consensus reality of a new world. And I leave the form -- the details -- to follow that function. That's what it means to me.
Q: Yesterday, while considering the "Paradox of Participation" thread, my mind drifted to what Lazaris said about our creation of a "Virgin Future." Can you talk about how the Virgin Future relates to the "Paradox"?
Jach: I find the paradox of participation thread to be really fun and thought provoking. The actual paradox is even more exhilarating. Hmm. ... I hadn't thought about it in relationship to the Virgin Future, but, of course, it relates.
The Virgin Future, precursor to the New World, is also now destined to be. First, that's a hard one for many of us to get our minds around. We can say the words, I suppose, but do we really grok the reality? I know it is really hard for me. I know that I think I understand it and accept it, and then it seems to slip away again. I keep returning to the idea of a Virgin Future as a fixed up and a much better rendition of the current or the past. I tend to experience the Virgin Future in a Don Quixote fashion. I keep seeing the wrongs righted and the impossible dreams dreamt. Maybe it will be that way. But that is not -- cannot -- be the whole of it.
So, as ideal as I want to hold it, as quixotic as my image of it may be, when it's that way, I know I haven't yet groked it. I haven't yet wrapped my mind around it. And then I realize I don't have to wrap my mind around it completely. I don't have to know the precise details. I can still participate! Ha! I don't have to know every play or every strategy. I don't have to know each move and each step. I can still participate in the creation and the manifestation of the virgin future.
And then I think ... the word virgin means untouched by human hands ... and I smile. I guess I won't be able to pore over the blueprints, will I? I can participate in its creation and manifestation without a direct and conscious "hands on" experience of what it is. And that is so exciting to me.
It seems that the Paradox of Participation is essential for us to have a hand in creating something that is untouched by our hands. And I think it is important to remember that the resolution of paradox is where the power lies. And the resolution of this paradox is in choice. I love it. [g]
Q: Hello, Jach! In the Merlin-Arthur recordings, Lazaris describes Camelot. Apparently, the New World will have the qualities and characteristics found in Camelot, but with the year 2006 "just around the corner," can you give us some more details? THANK YOU!
Jach: Hehehe ... Hi there. Give you more details? Wow. [s] Well, 2006 is fast approaching, that is true. So I go back to that Culminating Weekend called "Earth Changes." During that discussion, Lazaris laid out the chromatic octaves of energy that are active. Beginning in 1982, the pattern of the past was broken and a 12-year cycle began. In 1994, the Vortex of Sirius ... the Vortex of the Goddess ... opened wide and full, as it had not done for over 90,000 years and will not do again for another 90,000 years. After 1994, during the most monumental decade in the history of humankind, we made a choice: There will be a positive future of dreams and visions. 2006 (with a plus or minus of 3 years ... between 2003 and 2009) is the birthing of the New World. And as with any birth, there are labor pains ... there are massive contractions and cramps. I think our world is experiencing such labor pains. But the focal year is 2006 for the birthing. It could be a late birthing; it could be as late as 2009. But it is actually the following twelve years that are key ... 2006 to 2018. The realization or the growing of that New World happens then.
So it's not as if one day in 2006, a New World cries out, and a New World is born with a specific time and date. ... It will not have an astrological sign. [s] And it's not as though our "old world" will vanish and a new one will take its place. It's a birthing, but there the analogy to human birth ends.
See, this is why Lazaris has emphasized growing and changing ... why he has focused so much on shifting our observing and measuring devices. Our reality ... old world or new world ... is still an illusion. It is still the stuff of raw materials, tools, and generating and sustaining energies. It is still the stuff of our creation. In order to experience the New World, we need new calibrations for our old observing and measuring devices. If we don't, the very, very new world will appear and seem to function just as the very, very old one did. There is not some sort of miraculous salvation out there where we will wake up in the New World. It's not about some metaphysical "rapture." [vbg] The energies will be there. It is up to us to configure that energy in formation ... in a new formation ... of a new world.
So between 2006 and 2018, we will be doing that. And even now, we can experience pieces ... glimmers and shimmers ... of that New World. There are many things in my life ... and there are many things in your life ... in all our lives ... that truly are the stuff of the new world. If we look with patience ... attention and intention ... we can experience them. In many ways, we have parts of the New World as our reality already. Yes.
But other people don't, right? Well, that is always going to be the case. There will always be those who insist the world is the same old world. Personally, I don't think we can wait for the "least among us" to get on board. As Lazaris points out, if someone is trapped in a deep well shouting for help, stand strong outside the well and offer to lift them out. Don't jump down and join them in the well so the two of you can shout louder. So I look for my expressions of a New World, and I share that with others. I will not deny it until the "least among humankind" accepts it.
Using another analogy, it is not unlike Magellan's ships. We need to be the shamans for our world. We need to help people see what they cannot yet see. And we don't do that by blinding ourselves. We do that by looking more closely and listening more intently. We do that by shifting our own observing and measuring devices. We do that by working with the building blocks of this decade ... dominion, mystery, creation/manifestation, expansion, union ... and upcoming, illumination. And we work with complexity ... maintaining our individuality, while we come together and function as one without abandoning or losing that individuality.
So, more details? Well, I don't know what it will look like for you or for others. I cannot say I absolutely know what it looks like for me. I suspect it will be incredibly individual and distinctively unique for each of us. I suspect that the New World will actually be more like many New Worlds (plural) ... many different sets of reality creation that are amazingly, even astoundingly, individual. But I could be wrong about that. [s]
Thanks for your question.
Q: Hi, Jach. Can working with the Mystical Other help us give birth to the New World more elegantly?
Jach: Hi there. (And honestly, folks, I did not suggest this question ahead of time. [s]) It's good to hear from you.
In a word: Yes. In more words: Absolutely working with the worlds of Other -- of the Mystical Other (meaning the Other that is not available through our familiar senses, but is nonetheless there) -- can be a powerful venue for giving birth to the New World, or as Lazaris says it, "a world that is becoming new." Lazaris has talked about how we are involved in an evolution of consciousness and in an evolution of the human species. Evolution of consciousness is always happening. The evolution of a species doesn't happen that often, but it happens, for sure. However, such evolution has never been a conscious one, until now.
And the evolution of the human species is often totally misunderstood. People used to have images of people with huge heads and tiny, little, frail bodies, because we were evolving into totally cerebral people. Obviously, not so. Others even now talk of people having extra or additional chromosomes. Again, not so. It is not that sort of totally physical evolution of the species, but it is an evolution -- generating a "new kind of human being." And both evolutions are happening consciously. But we cannot do it alone. We need help. We get that help as we work with our magic and with our friends (seen and Unseen). In addition, we need to reach beyond conscious creation magic and beyond resonance magic. We need to reach into the realms of "Other" magic and confluence magic. And that, I think, is where the Mystical Other comes in.
As we work with magicians from our worlds (current and ancestral) and with magicians from the Faerie Realm -- that World of Other that shares our planet -- I think we lift to an expansive level of magic that can generate realities or changes in reality that are beyond our current scope. I think that with confluence magic -- the blending together of human and faerie magic into a pool of magic -- we can reach beyond the horizons into the Unknown, and we can create possibilities before they become possibilities in our world.
Lazaris talks about this in the Celebrating the Worlds of Other Intensive. The Imaginal Realm is where possibility exists before it is possible, and it's where magic creates itself. And during that workshop, we met with our faerie friend in the Imaginal Realm -- also a realm that we and faeries share. And we worked magic together. And that magic was phenomenal. It "shook a lot of people up" with a resonance shift and shake down. [s] A lot of unexpected changes happened to a lot of us out of that workshop.
But back to the point: We cannot do it alone. We cannot do it with our current levels of magic as masterful and as majestic as they may be. We need to work together. Together -- a concept of our feminine side (regardless of our gender) that is too foreign. Together -- a concept that in our world is being brutalized as women throughout parts of the world are being brutalized. Together -- a concept that with the lack of civility that is occurring in the United States -- is something we all need to begin to understand and to embrace. And together, we can work our magic with other human magicians. Together, we can work our magic with faerie magicians who also have a stake in our success. So, working with the Mystical Other -- which includes Nature Spirits, the Elements, the forces of the universe, as well as with faeries -- can be a powerful component in birthing a world that is becoming new.

I get very excited about all this. Excuse my zeal. [s] And thanks for your question [s]
