Hi Friends,

There is a potpourri of viewpoints available to you this week on the
Reconnections Site.  As always, I am deeply grateful to those who
donate to support this work, so we can keep the message moving around
the world!  You know who you are, and we salute you........personally
and publically.

A new article: "Regarding Abortion" shares some impressions I had,
following July 4th, concerning this highly controversial and
important subject for our time.

Many have already sent in valuable input for ongoing discussion, some
of which will probably appear in additional installments around this
topic.

THE DARK KNIGHT

If you haven't seen this movie, by all means, DO!!  It's a modern
masterpiece.   Here are some initial impressions I had, after seeing
it the first time.  The characters and plot open up so many important
issues which I feel will generate deep and meaningful discussions for
quite some time.  This movie definitely qualifies as a "Dream of the
Mass Mind"

In this week's featured transmission, the Reconnections are speaking
to us about "Disowned Human Needs"......in a passage from "Belief and
Human Need."  

http://www.reconnections.net/belief_human_need.htm

As the energy of the planet continues to rise, and disempowering
restraint energies fall away, we will begin to notice RAW HUMAN NEEDS
that have been denied---in some cases---since we were children.  As
one of my favorite authors put it so poignantly..........

"In this way......in increments both measurable and not, our
childhood is stolen from us---not always in one momentous event but
in a series of small robberies, which add up to the same loss."

~John Irving .


********************************************

There are also transmissions on "Releasing Responsibility"  and an
article called "Break Up to Wake Up" which provides some interesting
insights about Marriage and Family during these highly charged and
transitional times.  This energy feels to be especially UP at this
time.

The "Basics of Oneness" Sector has been expanded and re-designed for
a more user-friendly interface with these truths that make up one of
the cornerstones of our work here.  Enjoy.

On the Star Child Site, we have a nice collection of insights about
Children of the New Earth, including a description of the various
subsets for New Kids, called 'What's in a Name?"...........which also
features my own rationale about what it means to be a "Star
Child"...........

Another featured article asks the question:  "Do You Ever Feel Like
an Alien in Your World?"

http://www.reconnections.net/alien_world.htm

And still another page deals with the role of Empathic Healing in the
lives of New Kids and their families:

Have a Wonderful Week.   I'm off to celebrate another birthday
(egads!) by grabbing some sun and surf!  Yea!  You'll hear from me
again soon.  

Blessings,

"Listening is an art not easily come by, but in it there is beauty
and great understanding. We listen with the various depths of our
being, but our listening is always with a preconception or from a
particular point of view. 

We do not listen simply; there is always the intervening screen of
our own thoughts, conclusions, and prejudices. To listen there must
be an inward quietness, a freedom from the strain of acquiring, a
relaxed attention. 

This alert yet passive state is able to hear what is beyond the
verbal conclusion. Words confuse; they are only the outward means of
communication; but to commune beyond the noise of words, there must
be in listening, an alert passivity. 

Those who love may listen, but it is extremely rare to find a
listener. Most of us are after results, achieving goals; we are
forever overcoming and conquering, and so there is no listening. It
is only in listening that one hears the song of the words.      

~Jiddu Krishnamurti
