LET THE RIVER RUN

By Daniel Jacob

I love the title of this piece.  A friend sent me the words to Carly Simon's song this morning, and I just decided to "run" with them............because, this morning it feels to me that The Danielverse is once again on the move.  When I returned from the Mountain in September, my soul chose to dive deep down, beneath the floor of my perceived reality.  I went from high lightness and deep interact to semi-darkness and intense introspect.  What goes up must come down.  In fact, it goes out in all directions at once.  It was in that introspective space that I chose to complete the "Dark Forces" Transmission, which was begun in 1992 but never published.  With some expansion of tones from the Guides, updating the message to current issues, it fit perfectly in my now.   

It seems that a goodly portion of humanity is presently trying to pull the covers over our heads.  It's dark down there, isn't it?  Warm and dark and comfortably familiar. The sunlight of self revelation can be bright, indeed.....and we rub red eyes and hit the snooze alarm so we can catch just a few more Z's before breakfast is served.  And that is just what the transmission was speaking about, isn't it? 

To be or not to be. To sleep, perchance to dream. Aye, there's the rub!  These last four years have been like a kind of dream, haven't they?  A nightmare of self-revelation.  I brought through the first Dark Forces Message in 1992, which was the beginning of the Clinton Era.  At that time, the Guides told me: "This Presidency will be a parentheses in the ongoing narrative of human evolution......a sweet extension of an American Dream before things get really weird."  It was certainly that, wasn't it?  In my view, the Clinton Years were America at its smoothest, even though we were forever in the process of trying to swallow our own tail while we experienced it.  And yes, there were problems.  And some of those problems got ignored.  Problems are always with us......but possibilities, like waves.......can only be ridden in the moment.  And ride them we did!   

Any thoughts about Dark Forces had to go on the shelf during that time.  After all, the Clinton era was about possibility, extending outward, and daring to try new things.  A guy named "Bubba" was our leader, and doorways seemed to be opening, right and left.  I'm especially thinking about the Middle Class here. We had reasonable relations in world government, and many things seemed to go fairly well. The Internet boomed, the Dot Com's soared, and a common feller got to feel what it was like to run with the big dogs.  We had just begun to get the taste of Cyber Freedom--a modern-day version of the Promised Land.  It was our New Jerusalem, where anyone with a keyboard could post an article online, and come up in a search engine right alongside an Editor for the New York Times.  

Clients of mine, heavily involved in stock market trade, seemed completely baffled.  The market was no longer predictable during that period.  Time-honored principles and techniques, that have always worked to keep fat cats in power, were blown apart...all over the table, and all over the globe.  Regular folks rose and fell on hunches and whims--causing ripples of excitement that spread everywhere in the same way juicy gossip dances across phone lines in a small town. The royalty of the financial world felt a pinch for awhile--and then they took the necessary steps to get things back into their line. 

Just as "free love" of the sixties was smacked in the head by a strong renewal of religious fervor in the seventies--so did the proclaimed Era of the Common Man get chewed up by an Elitist Money Machine, expertly navigated by the "haves" and "have mores."  Sacred Cyberland began to be invaded by identity thieves, child molesters, and creators of homemade pryotechnics. Most of all, it began to bow down to the God of Commerce.  Spam began to fill our mailboxes, and pop-ups dogged us every time we booted up.  But the MEMORY and VISION of that Era still remains.  And that is what we're poised to realize in these new few days before the election. 

TO HAVE, AND HAVE NOT

There is taking going on now, at nearly every level.  Have you noticed it?  There are schemes, plots, manipulations, and con games--ably administrated by drifters, grifters, and sharks galore.  A woman is arrested and arraigned, because she allocates money from a company bank account and puts it in her own.  A man agrees to launder money for the mob, and gets tens of thousands deposited into his secret account in the Cayman Islands.  It happens everyday, right?   In Oneness, how do we react to this?  How does it play out, from a Reconnections point of view?

In a Multiverse, there is a reality base which honors every possible belief, every possible situation.  Each person is his or her own universe.  Within that universe, everything and everyone is YOU...............and there is no separation.  There is also no lack.  There is only limitless resource, and infinite variance of expression.  There is merely a fragmentation of images, to show us everything that we are, up close and in perfect detail.     

 

Whenever shadow appears, it belongs to the creators of the universes that notice and condemn it.  Usually, a shadow reflects something negative-- something a creator is doing to himself, and judges with some intensity.  Or, perhaps, it could indicate something that he NEEDS TO BEGIN DOING.............but cannot quite get himself to do, because it doesn't fit with his current vibratory frequency.   

In "The Politics of Oneness," the Guides speak about this in detail: 

 
"Through Politics, you create a space called "society," where YOU form an agreement with THEM.....that you will all subjugate your spontaneous, authentic, in-the-moment choices and behavior to a pre- established protocol of expression (or repression)---to the desired end that you may live (peacefully, if possible) within a pre- fabricated, postured environment that looks good, sounds good, but inevitably ends up feeling quite empty and sad.

To realize that there is ONLY ONE......regardless of that One's various masks and faces, smiles, tears, or overt actions ......is the beginning of a new world, right then and there. And it only takes One, for that is all there really is, or ever was!

As this One begins to own each "other" one, and another, and another, as self......continually expanding his or her identity....and sentience of self---an innate force of personal homeostasis begins to take over.  It isn't a "negotiated peace" at all. It is now, and always was inbred. Natural. Quite efficient, really.

In a Reconnected World, as in an aware, functional human body......the instinct for self-preservation always ends up reigning supreme. All AS One, One AS All. Every man for himself. But friends......what a "self" ye all are! Focus! Realize! Relax into it! You'll be amazed.

It is the belief in your perceived "other" as separate from your Oneself....that gives birth to fear......and eventually to various forms of Politics (be they clans, tribes, or Federal and State Government).  And.... even though a person's politics are fair, honest, and true......they are still the fruit of a poisoned tree, an illusionary tree......called "separation."  <snip>

Those who are accused or imprisoned on this planet (the largest prison census ever, by the way), are often judged for taking what belongs to "others" and using it for themselves.  Some are sick of being "have nots," and decide to take action in order to become a "have."  They get caught because their basic attitudes are still built on SEPARATION..............and their 3D world arrests them, so they cannot break down basic boundaries when there is no inner reality to back up those changes.  
 
Attorneys and Politicians are often accused of having licenses to steal. Many of them openly, blatantly, and brazenly channel what belongs to the "team," and use it to prosper themselves and their friends.  Those who can't or won't see this happening are either blind or they are benefiting.  Our leaders turn away from the poor and disenfranchised, because they understand (on some level) that everyone is responsible for his or her own reality.........and, if you're poor........you're poor because you choose not to be rich. If we stop ourselves from allowing in everything that is here.......it's a choice, and we need to know that, and deal with it.  Unless we assume responsibility for your own WELFARE, no one else will.  A person can't write checks from a trust fund, unless his own name is on the account. 

Reckless and unfeeling politicians will ultimately fall........because they have not yet mastered the FULL MEASURE of what it means to be rich or powerful.  But before they do, they will train us thoroughly in what it means to stand up and declare what we want.  The primary reason that Mr. Bush & Co. have been allowed to "reign" for this amount of time..........is because humanity needs to SEE and OWN that ALL OF LIFE is there for us, simply for the taking.........each person, writing checks from a limitless, Multidimensional Bank Account.  Once we get that, the OUTRAGE of our situation will dissipate.  There are no victims, only volunteers.  Things will change in the outer world as they need to, while our own personal reality can remain unaffected, unless we CHOOSE to have it otherwise.   

 
The basic motivation TO HAVE is sweet, and right-on.  Someone who "takes" is a person who remembers what it is like to be "rich," and serves himself freely from the banquet table of life.  This current batch of souls remember that much, but their mind blocks them from moving beyond the short-sightedness of denial and personal separation.   
 
It SUCKS to be a "have not" in a 3D world.   We come from realms of being where a person can be or have ANYTHING just by thinking it.  If we want something, we take it.  If there is no separation, there is no foul.  But therein is the rub.  If each of us owns our personal universe, and everything in that universe is SELF............we will be able to acquire anything we wish...............just like we used to pick fruit off those trees in Eden.   We won't have to slave or save for it.  And we won't need to connive and steal.  We just open our hand and its there.  And it will be, if we go ahead and shift our inner reality to align with the outer one.   
 
Criminals are those who ACT OUT issues of havingness without shifting that inner thinking.  They "take" without having.  They want fruit from the tree...... but the tree is still poisoned by beliefs in separation.  Poisoned Apples they are.  They put us to SLEEP, just like they did Snow White.   
 
There will come a time when all of humanity will be funneling energy from "Oneself Coffers" and absorbing it into our personal accounts.  We'll just open our hands and what we need or want will be there.  No muss, no fuss.  Additionally, we'll be funneling energy and support back as well.......because we'll realize, on every level, that there is no separation between ourselves and the rest of that "team."  There is only the appearance of separation.  This new way of thinking and being is not socialism....nor is it humanitarianism, either.  It's simply SELF LOVE.  True love gives without hesitation-- then eats and drinks without shame. The truest identifier of Love is the existence of give and take. The time of one-sided sacrifice is coming to an end.       
 
For now, though, we still have these shadows.  And, of course..........we cannot forget the great JOY that we extract from intensity, drama, limitation, and disaster!  Because we come to this world from a realm of PLENTY, we take our vacation around the idea of SCARCITY and STRUGGLE.   Our dear imprisoned or abused ones wear that part of us that dearly LOVES to be locked up a little longer.  We'll do almost anything to avoid losing it.  But then....... when it's gone, it's REALLY gone.      
 
In the early years of channeling the Recons, Belteshazzar (Host Guide into the System) spent hours, days, and months with me..........hammering home this realization.  He would tease me........ drool in my ear, almost............emphasizing how dearly I loved being "trapped" by my STORY (capital "s"), and my continuous issues with the 3D world.  I could hear him muttering:  "Limitation.  Beee-yooo-tiful, delicious LIMITATION..............Such a thrill for the senses, yes?"   I would flip him the bird, and continue writhing in my agony.  :-)  

Now, the sunlight of this realization is beginning to seep through the window of my sleepy brain.  I am getting ready (on a universal level) to entertain the idea of taking down some of those walls and entering freely into the Walkways that lead to the Crystal City. They exist first in the mind.  A change of heart and mind is a chance of one's world.         

BREAKING THROUGH THE RESISTANCE

Today, I feel myself existing in a universe where John Kerry is going to win the upcoming election.  And, contrary to what the polls may say.......I don't even think it will be a close contest either.  Tomorrow, I may careen into yet another universe....and that will be fine.  It will be whatever it needs to be.  I think the college kids will play a big part in the process, by the way.  Star Kids are here, and they are about to be heard.  The feeling of worldwide momentum shifted yesterday, and I want to write about it today.  I want to share it, and see what comes back to me.  

In my world, we are choosing to be "Haves" and Common Men as well.  Bubba taught us that, and he continues to teach us.  That guy is on top of the world.  He's a survivor.  We do what we do on the Inner Planes first, and we let the Outer Planes reflect back to us the work that still needs to be done.  It's about integration of opposites.  What Ralph Nader is teaching us now, in his dogged determination, is this:  We need a third alternative.  We need something the MERGES the best aspects of a democracy and a republic. We're trying to establish democracy in Iraq, even as ruling forces in both parties are screaming for authorities to come and supervise the voting process HERE, in the U.S.   Go figure!

We don't need to foster a Welfare State to recover America, where social "programs" take the place of genuine love, re-enforcing the impotence and inertia that strangles potential in people's lives.  That's why those programs have been dismantled.  These next four years will bring about something entirely new--something neither candidate has really envisioned.  We also don't need more Aristocracy, where runaway entitlement and corporate forms of welfare leverages national resources in favor of the few, rather than the many. That isn't Reconnection, either. 

Republicans are worried.......and rightfully so....... when politicians speak fluidly about "political equality" and "returning America to the people."  What does that mean, anyway?  How can folks who own nothing, do nothing, and strive for nothing vote EQUALLY with people who have charge over vast industrial, economic, and personal holdings?  It's ludicrous.  I have to say it again.  If we boil everything down to common man experience, and common man language.....we would be talking COMMUNITY PROPERTY here. 

It's no wonder that Donald Trump demands a prenuptial agreement when he marries.  Wouldn't you?  A woman marries him for just a few years, seeks divorce....and then she wants what... HALF?  Forget about it.  It's the same with political equality.  To operate in this reality, we have to OWN IT.  We have to OWN IT ALL.  That has more to do with attitude than with altitude on the social scale.  The ownership of which the Guides speak is not something that exists merely on paper. or in bank accounts.  It spans across time and space.  It is an INNATE STEWARDSHIP, the kind of worldwide connection and presence that previously belonged only to Gods and Goddesses. Now, it is available to everyman and everywoman, so long as we recognize the true nature of who and what we are.   

We can't be too judgmental with the "old guard" for striving to hold onto the reins.  When you've got nothing, you've got nothing to lose.  But when you've got everything, you still have some choices.  But do you still have a decent sense of perspective?  Can you remain powerful, like a God--and still think about what's best for humans?  Those who lose touch with their inner pauper will eventually lose their kingdom as well.  If you drink champagne and watch people starve all around you, your head will eventually end up on some chopping block--a guillotine of your own making. There's just too many paupers in this world, and some of them are damn smart.

Democracy isn't about shared wealth, nor is it about social equality.  In fact, it's our INEQUALITY and DIVERSITY that makes each segment of  society useful to the other.  Some people will naturally be movers and shakers, and some will naturally be sitters and watchers.  Viva la difference. Democracy is about LISTENING to each of those voices when it comes time to make the big decisions.  And its about SPEAKING UP when you finally figure out something to say.         

Not everyone with money and influence has lost touch. There are brilliant minds on this planet that are pondering ways to sidestep this madness. Some of them are paupers on paper, but are kings and queens in their heart.  Some of them have a boatload of money, that will be mobilized at just the right time to get the job done.  Let us render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's.  When we speak about returning Government to the "people," let us remember that we're talking about MANY KINDS of people---rich ones, poor ones, middle income, educated, simpletons, corporation presidents, employees, mean folks, and those who also are kind.  Everything has its time and place.......and that place is TOGETHER.         

We mustn't let the Puppets and the Puppet Masters ruin our vision for a Reconnection of Humankind.  The most dynamic things that lie ahead for humanity will appear spontaneously, and without preparation.  After all, we do love a surprise, do we not?  Things are not always what they seem.  And there are "seams" that are just about to break open--revealing some interesting new resources, indeed!  I can feel the momentum growing, just like I felt that lava dome as it was growing inside Mt. St. Helens, here in Washington.

The Millennium is bringing us three stages of change, between our year 2000 and the year 2012.  Each stage will last about four years.  The first stage is about REVEALING THE SHADOW.  These four years have showed humankind the height and the depth of our incredibly diverse nature.  A dagger was plunged, deep into the chest of Our Global Heart.  We reeled, we cried, we reached out, we raged.  We've seen, in broad spectrum, the best and the beast that lives in all of us.   

The next four years will be about EMBRACING THE SHADOW, in all its aspects.  Regardless of who gets elected, humanity must OWN HIM......and ultimately EMBRACE HIM, AS SELF........... or we'll continue to circle, round and round, through deserts of desire--never letting ourselves enter into the Promised Lands we have been seeking for so long.  Then, the final four years will be about EXPANDING THE ONESELF.  Once we try it, we will surely like it.  You aren't one of many.  You're really many of ONE.  Once that virus catches on, it will circle the globe.  And what's more, we won't need flu shots for it.  Futurists have been referring to that time as "Critical Mass."  We're just about there. The Reconnections have spoken about it as our "World of Time/No-Time."  If you haven't read the transmission, you might want to do so now......just to whet your appetite.  It'll be a grand party.  It's worth hanging on to see it all come together.   

Yes, sir........the river is flowing.  Let it run!  Our Oneself Energy is on the move.  Let's just ride the waves, and let it do its thing. Some of us are feeling activated, right out of our socks.  Others are blown-out and dead tired, trying to keep up with inner nerves and circuits that are crashing.  It's all part of the game.  We're all doing the very best we can.  Enjoy it, at whatever level, because it's all YOU. 

I saw a sneak preview of the movie "Finding Neverland" last night.  Superb.  And just the right timing, I believe.  It got a bit schmaltzy, in some parts........but oh boy, I do love it when Peter Pan takes to the skies.  Johnny Depp and Kate Winslett are awesome as well.  Good chemistry.   

Well, here it is.......Carly's Song.    Very powerful.  Very apropos.  Enjoy the next few days.  And fasten your seat belt, lassie!  It just might be a wild ride.

Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.
Come, the New Jerusalem.

Silver cities rise,
the morning lights
the streets that meet them,
and sirens call them on
with a song.

It's asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.

We're coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.

We the great and small
stand on a star
and blaze a trail of desire
through the dark'ning dawn.

It's asking for the taking.
Come run with me now,
the sky is the color of blue
you've never even seen
in the eyes of your lover.

Oh, my heart is aching.
We're coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.

It's asking for the taking.
Trembling, shaking.
Oh, my heart is aching.

We're coming to the edge,
running on the water,
coming through the fog,
your sons and daughters.

Let the river run,
let all the dreamers
wake the nation.
Come, the New Jerusalem.
