The Bridge People
Part V
B Y   D A N I E L   J A C O B
 

ONE OF THE HARDEST lessons to learn during times of rapid transformation is the realization that there are no mistakes, no errors, in how your life is designed and contracted, or how it has unfolded to date. Everything is the way it was supposed to be.

Oh my! What a pill to swallow! What force of will is required to even entertain such an idea! And yet, if we are to move from 3D Consciousness to become Citizens of Multi-D, our journey must begin here. Without such a realization, our Cosmic Ship would run aground even before we reach the Inner Harbor.

The dual beliefs of multiversal perfection and physical immortality are direct springboards into the Expanded Realms. They own and realize that nothing really changes except our perception. It is the shifting and changing of perception that constitutes a soul's evolution in physical form.

For many, the only "comfort" (if you could call it that) which has been gained from suffering through a traumatic and unfulfilling childhood comes from (justified) resentment they carry against that nasty old stork, who must have delivered them to the wrong house... or that "ideal job" which passed them by, or the lover that was never theirs... on and on. To circle back now, and begin reframing their life as 100% successful, from its beginning to current day, is far more than some minds can handle. They would choke before the words could even pass their lips.

The Good, the Bad, and the Other-ly
Even the most wretched being, riddled with disease and shunned by society, carries within himself a secret place where he believes: "I am special." Not only that, but there is also a place inside where comparisons are made, and judgments are formed, as he measures himself against others. It may dwell deep within his belly, and almost completely overlooked by conscious awareness, but it is there. A mind that is vexed, and a body that is wracked with pain does not change this. In fact, it is these preoccupations that often serve as a buffer between this being and his innate egotistical ties to reality. This is one of the hard lessons explored in The Book of Job, in the Bible.

We know that everyone cherishes an aspect to himself (or herself) which compares, gloats over, criticizes, and holds narcissistic "court" within the mind and heart. The way we know this is: we are still present in physical form. The very origin of 3D springs from separation consciousness, perceptual comparison, and contrast between two or more persons/objects in space. For more info on this, I invite you to review The Reconnections' Transmission on "How Universes Are Formed."

Bridge People have less to do with comparison, involving "this" or "that," than with the creation of a merge place for "this, that, and the other." And, when we speak about "The Other," we move back in the realm of hybrids again.

There are all kinds of hybrids on this planet today. The most well-known are hybrid plant species, vegetables and such. But, even more interesting, animals are being inter-bred - combining classic traits with other classic traits to produce variations of species that are sometimes quite unique. Examples of the more noteworthy are listed below, from Wikipedia. Some of these links include pictures:

Most fascinating are those hybridizations occurring within the gene pool of humanity. Some are deliberate, and some are quite incidental. Sci-Fi Stories about (mad) science and hybridization abound: Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, The Island of Dr. Moreau, and The Cat People come to mind right away. Other hybrid mixtures in film have involved insects, reptiles, and even plants. Many of the story lines use extraterrestrial visitation as a basis for these changes. Others build the story lines around radioactive fallout, nuclear testing, or residuals of war in order to explain the mutations.

Deep inside ourselves, we know that we're ONE with everything and everyone. But our physical appearance, and our diversity of character give a strong impression of separation, which makes 3D Reality an ideal place to study - up close and personal - certain variations of species and essence. To study what is, what was, and certainly what could be.

Mixing Species, Characteristics, and Realms
The are some mixtures that are merely "interesting," and then there are mixtures that serve eternal purposes. One of those "bridges" comes right from the Bible, where there is reference made to a time in human history where "swords are beaten into plowshares ... and the lion lays down with the lamb." Indeed, it seems unclear from the scripture what the lion does when he lays down with that lamb, but the idea of mixing and mingling essence, of mutual nurturing and blending, is certainly implied, whether or not any genetic material ever gets exchanged. There will come a time when Gentleness and Power, always seen as opposites, will combine their elements to form a new kind of government, a new way of being and seeing.

At one point in Jesus' teaching of the disciples, he encourages them to be "as cunning as wolves, but as gentle as lambs." Once again, we're invoking the power and essence of the animal kingdom so as to sharpen the abilities of men as they carry out their responsibilities in human form. The Native Americans, Africans, Eskimos, and Aborigines have known about this for centuries. We are speaking, of course, about Totem Energy, the shamanic practice of invoking animal or archetypal power into the lives of humans - for purposes of worship, preparations for war, and even as symbols or patrons of clans, tribes, and other communal arrangements.

It is not unusual to see Medicine Men and Tribal Chieftains adorn themselves with pelts, necklaces, and headdresses - made from horns, teeth, or antlers of local beasts - openly identifying with the power of those animals to assist them as they dispatch their duties among the people. From a Tribal Viewpoint, animals, birds, or crawling things are not just beasts of burden, irritants, or a hunters' prey. They are also partners in the circle of life, caring for and co-habiting the land. When an animal is killed and eaten, as is a natural function of life for these people - it becomes a ceremonial occasion, a cause for worship and thanksgiving. Natives grieve when they see "white men" kill animals simply for sport. To them, it's a travesty - an unnatural act, and a disgrace.

Many Tribes name themselves after birds, animals, and other living things. Belief in the art of Shape Shifting among indigenous peoples kindles the holy flame of Collective Imagination - generating an energy which, over time, assumes that it is possible for a man or woman to transform, to temporarily assume the form of an animal or bird, running and flying as beasts do, then returning again to human form when it suits their fancy. Truth or Fiction? Only the Shadow knows!

There are many other types of "hybrids" we could discuss: Developmentally "Special" People (whose consciousness sits halfway between 3D and the Expanded Realms), Transexuals, Two-Spirited (Berdache) People, Bi-Polars (holding both polarities within themselves at once), Multiple Personalities, etc. These are people who outwardly, literally, create union between both "sides" of many issues. They anchor firmly on "this side," and they attach themselves to "that side." Like the Native People, they have caught the vision of oneness, on some levels, and they busy about the process of integrating that Oneness.

Bridge People in the Aquarian Age
It has been said that the Piscean Age is officially over and done. Whereas we once spent our time learning to be "fishers of men," controlling the masses through politics, religion, social mores, and law - we are now entering into an age where the water-bearer is pouring out the water (very symbolic of emotion) from the urn, and letting it fun freely.

In this New Age of Techno-Marvels and Instant Communication, the Bridge People will be made up primarily of those who have "eyes to see and ears to hear." The Shape-Shifting in our lives truly IS a matter of perception, as are all facets of life. The Tribes of the Future will learn to be unbiased, fair minded people who do not jump to conclusions or readily take "sides" in whatever issues that emerge. Instead, they will be peacemakers, way-showers in the path of new life.

Other characteristics of those who are now emerging to take up this mantle are as follows:
  • Gatekeepers: One door in their mind and heart opens to the Multiverse, and one door opens to 3D reality. They have investments in each realm. Within the confines of that passageway, there is a magical transformation that happens..... making visits between the worlds possible. Remember the function of that wardrobe, in C.S. Lewis' Chronicles of Narnia? A closet with two doors. That's what these people are like.
  • Alchemists: Their life purpose is "mixing and mingling" energies, for the purpose of facilitating transformation. Their bodies and souls are cauldrons, into which are poured a whole host of wonderful and awesome concoctions! They are wonders to behold.
  • Fair Minded: Because their primary motivation is "mixing and blending," Bridge People can usually see ALL sides of a dispute quite clearly. They are frequently consulted, as mediators, and do a fine job of it, when left to themselves.
  • Considerate: Because they operate clearly on the belief that everyone and everything is truly a part of themselves, Bridge People tend to be quite sensitive to the feelings of others, and it benefits all who come in contact with them.
  • Resilient: Bridge People have loads of endurance. In truth, they are naturally resilient because they are minimally involved in resisting the nature of people or things. When you spend your life looking for ways to join people, there is not a huge outflow of resistance energy.
  • Curious: People with this outlook tend to have a huge interest in the diversity and color of life. They are always ready for the new and unusual. That is how they end up with such a "menagerie" of friends! They innately know when people are open to sharing, and they are quick to give space to those who need it.
  • Gregarious and Community-Oriented: Though Bridge People can be excellent dance partners, in a one-to-one relationship, they tend to become bored if they are forced to remain in that state too long. Though many of them rejuvenate their energy in solitude, Bridge Folk are basically social animals, and require plenty of stimulation and variety to stay healthy and alive.

These are just a few of the qualities demonstrated by Bridge People. The December Segment will be our final segment in this series. In that article, we will talk about a time, not too long from now, when society, as a whole will become the Bridge, finally affording these dedicated individuals some much-needed rest. They can then lay aside their tools and enjoy the ride. Those will be exciting times, indeed, and not too distant, I might add. Have a Great Thanksgiving. See you next month.

DJ.
