THESE ARE the Bridge People ... neither "this" nor "that,"
but something in-between. This will be our final segment in this
current series. Obviously, there is much more that could be said,
and perhaps we will say more at some point.

was never exclusively theirs in the first place. There is really
only one of us here. An appearance of many

continually taking our stimulation from without.

crazy, tortuous place. People and things just seem to come at us -
like ghosts, clowns, and monsters from some haunted
house. Boo! Boo Who? Boo YOU, that's who!
and symbols tell us: "Your world is this" and "Your world is that."
And we believe them for a time, don't we? That's part of the fun.
That's part of taking a
Limitation. We pay our admission fee. We climb aboard the train.
And we sit back and
enjoy the ride. Bridge People know this and it gives us no end
of joy and amusement. We scream and holler like the rest of the
folks in the fun house, but deep down ... we know. We
To live life
from the inside out is to turn tables on those who derive pleasure
from playing upon the fears and obsessions of the human lab-rats,
running in our maze. We become exceptions to their rule. A fellow
comes up to us and asks: "Would you rather die by being stabbed or
by being shot?" Oooooo ... decisions, decisions. Finally we answer:
"I'd rather not die at all today, thank you."
seems to be about discerning "this" from "that." We are told that if
we don't choose, we lose. Reconnection is about becoming ALL OF IT.
All the choices
have already been made. We've known this, on some level, since we
were kids. We lived in homes filled with anger, suspicion, fear, and
strife. Bridge People almost always do. It's how we develop our
little, we remember how to take on the fear. Then, we take on the
strife, and we go within and harmonize it. Add a touch of hope, a
sprinkle of love, and "Voila!" It seems like magic, doesn't it?
Soon, our home environment begins to clear (at least for awhile).
Our sense of safety increases. We do this over and over and over
until it becomes second nature. There even comes a time when we
aren't even aware we are doing it. Things just happen and we reach
out and calm them.
Illusion of Control
Everything is as it is because we meant for it to be that way. Not
but collectively. The Ego is that part of us that has been kept in
the dark about things like Soul Contracts and the Sovereignty of the
Soul. He or She is like the audience in a theater, waiting for the
movie to begin ... popcorn in one hand, frosty Big-Gulp in the other
... waiting, watching.

Events Appearing Real.
And that works, I suppose. It sounds good. We learned in an earlier
segment that, in the Multiverse, there are universes which honor
every thought imaginable, and then some. From that viewpoint, there
is no such thing as a "false event," is there? And yet, what is it
that really dwells at the heart of fear? Isn't a big part of it
rooted in concerns about the loss of control?

People take this knowledge and run with it. They read that a
particular country is mad at its neighbor because certain policies
are negatively impacting its citizens. While both countries
blatantly disregard the impact of certain issues on the other,
Bridge People disregard nothing. Instead, they take these countries
into themselves, at some level of their being, and begin working
with them. Suddenly, what once represented "opposing sides" in a
battle now become part of a single being. The right hand and the

In fair Verona, where we lay our scene,
From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean

Whose misadventur'd piteous overthrows

lovers "star-crossed?" Or was it simply their chosen assignment
to demonstrate to the world the power love has in bridging a gap, no
matter how ancient or impossible? And who had control of all this?
Everyone did. Everyone always does, even though our ego separations
and diversity of 3D roles may seem to differ. We are ALL represented
there on that Game Board, regardless of what transpires. It's called
holographic oneness. Everything and everyone is connected,
at our core, all across time, everywhere.
Viewed in a
separated sense, control is illusion. I don't have control over you,
even if my life position appears to be stronger. You may appear
weaker, in some circumstance; because we all agreed that it serves
us for you to be so. This is a timeless truth that often gets lost
in Limitation Role-Playing.
Jesus was a
Bridge Person. He stripped himself of eternal power, came to Earth
in human form, placed himself on the altar of some "authority," and
lived a life of service to humanity. Prior to his death, he clearly
stated: "No man takes my life from me. I lay it down of my own
accord." Such is the estate of all who bear the surname Christ. The
Christing is something that was not consigned to Jesus alone. All
Bridge People carry this position, this title, within universes of
The term "renaissance" literally means "rebirth" or "revival." A
Renaissance Man is a Hybrid - representing a full measure of the
"old ways" housed alongside a healthy infusion of the "new." His
life and being become a cauldron, within which all elements are
stirred and blended, to the end that something wonderful may result.
was a Christ figure for Britain. His human heritage, according to
the legend, was a proper mixture of Paganism and Christianity. Had
he sustained the perfect balance between these two elements, he
would have forged a whole new path for humankind. As it was, his
human weakness (and the weakness of those around him) created enough
of a "taste" for Renaissance Unclaimed that the Legend of Camelot,
with its Round Table and Gallant Knights, has become kindling for
noble aspirations within every civilization it has touched.
Joan of Arc
was a Christ figure for France. Not only did she wear the crossover
element of gender role reversal, but she also put a new "spin" on
certain gifts and abilities (clairaudience, for example) that were
previously judged as evil. Indeed, midway within her life itinerary,
humanity was unclear as to what we thought about her ... so she was
killed. Later, she was canonized as a saint.
This New Age
in which we live has taken on the role of "Christ" for the current
waves of awakening humankind. Rather than designating one man or
woman as carrier for this sacred mantle, it is being laid upon the
shoulders of All. For some, this results in the development of
"Messianic Delusion" that later becomes a monkey on their back.
Assuming that our current infusions of energy are meant to follow
previous patterns of development, these hapless beings choose to
"take the hit" personally, rather than ceremonially placing it on
the shoulders of Collective Humankind. Enough saints, legends, and
have died in the name of Human Enlightenment. Now is the time when
everyone can choose to LIVE under that same name.
1987 was called "The Harmonic Convergence." Certain Universal Tones
- such as Form and Chaos - began to merge into One Contiguous Tone,
opening doorways of expansion never known before. This change is
taking place on all levels, though only a few of them may be visible
to the naked eye.
to me, back in 1991, the
Reconnections put it this way:
use the analogy that the Human Body is a complete and graphic
microcosmic representation of all creation - we make some
important observations. Over the past fifty or so years, it has
been documented by your science that a vast array of organisms -
viruses and bacteria - has appeared again to "plague" humankind.
Each "cold" season reveals newer, more exotic strains of organisms
seeking entrance into the "Body." In all cases, the body - through
what you call the "immune system" - fights off the invaders until
such time as one of two things happens:
body loses the battle and disintegrates. Or....
body finds a way to integrate the new organism(s) into the
previous definition the body had of itself.
process, which you call "becoming immune" to an outside "invader"
is, in a sense, the body expanding itself to become a different
essence than it was before the organism appeared; stronger, more
Friends, turn the now-famous phrase around and see that: "as below
- so above." From the Spirit Plane, "new" ideas are literally
flooding into the conscious and sub-conscious mind. These ideas,
which are the embodiment of what
you have called "Grace" expand and challenge every previous
definition you ever had of yourselves.
Just as in
the body's case, your Spiritual Immune System, what you have
called "The Veil of Forgetfulness" is rapidly deteriorating. This
is not happening because you have been overpowered by an
"attacker," but because of the fact that once you integrate this
"attacker" into the rest of your definition of who and what you
are - there will be such strength that you will no longer need to
Shifting our holographic symbology here to the healing process
that is happening with the Planet, we see that the Earth's immune
system - or what you call the Ozone Layer - is also eroding at an
amazing rate. Consequently, more "sunlight" is entering your
experience than ever before. Are you getting the drift here?
from a contracted point of view - these "changes" produce fear and
alarm. You feel you will be "without defense" with the loss of
your immune system and your ozone. But, pardon our levity, we are
here to say: "Take de-fence down - there's no one here but YOU,
God!" Truly, there is only one of us here.
Friends, you are the Creators of your reality. Once the illusory
separations that exist in your mind, body, and planet are reduced
(but not eliminated) - you will CHANGE, "in the twinkling of an
eye" into a larger and more powerful representation of yourself
than you have ever known.
makes any entity stronger - providing that the mixing and blending
is being done for a holistic purpose, rather than individuated
subterfuge. Purity has its beauty, but real strength is found in the
intertwining that occurs between "this" and "that" ... the healthy
blending of old and new. "Adapt or Die" is an ancient saying which
carries a strong measure of profundity for those whose minds are
attuned to survival and proliferation on the Earth.
As we move
closer and closer to a Planetary Oneself - our collective
consciousness ripens. Someone once said: "As the individual becomes
more collective - the collective becomes more individual." When we
learn to see our reflection in ALL MEN, by way of imagination,
intuition, and metaphoric discernment - our understanding deepens
and becomes grounded in eternity.
As God said
of that powerful generation that set itself to the task of building
a Tower which dared to reach all the way to Heaven: "Behold ... the
people are ONE, and they have all the same language. And this they
begin to do. Now nothing will be restrained from them which they
imagine to do." In short, He said: "Wait just a minute,
guys." And that "minute," it seems, has lasted many thousands of

changes. On and on it goes... faster and faster.
together, are becoming the one who can make happen what has never
happened before. One language, one speech ... not in dialect, but in
a threefold merge of form, function, and feeling. A Golden Mean for
a Golden Age. And nothing will be restrained from us, which we (all)
imagine to do. So be it.
