I have been nurturing friendships recently with several young people who bear many of the characteristics described in my series "The Star Children."  Spirit just brings them my way, and I make it a point to pay attention.  I'll let them decide for themselves what "flavor" of Meta-Human they wish to be (Crystal, Indigo, Star Child, whatever)........or even if they wish to be called anything, other than by their own names. 

Star Kids are usually quite normal looking, but their inner lives can are usually entirely different story.  That's why you have to look so hard to find them.  Many of them can be loners.  Then, once contact has been made, we need to gain trust so they will open up and tell us more about that rich inner reality of theirs.  A good deal of Star Kid thinking is wild, imaginative, and quite expanded!  At other levels, though, their feelings may simply represent what seems like a normal breaking away from parental control.  In my view, this is what all of humanity is wanting to do at this time.  We want to nibble away at those "nets" that have been placed around us by the "fishers of men," so we can flow freely from the water bearer's pitcher.  

Perhaps this is a differentiation that can be made between Indigos and Star Kids.  Indigos are said to be more overt in their questioning of authority than are the others.  They have even been called "systems busters."  Star Kids are made up of those whose DNA has been "altered" through the influence of "Extracontextual" genetics and consciousness. When fully awakened, they are connected to a kind of collective consciousness--like that seen in whales and dolphins. They maintain their individuality, but they also have a side to their brains that can log into a Unified Onemind as well.    


Jake is a young man who recently spoke very passionately to me about the day his "innocent mind" began to grasp some disturbing facts about the world of adults.  He said:  "I finally realized that most adults are just big kids! Many of them don't know what they're doing anymore than we do. They just have more elaborate ways of pretending--and more resources to create their illusions of control." 

When I heard this, my mind immediately flashed on "The Wizard of Oz," and that scene in the throne room, where the four friends are standing before The Great and Powerful One.  Even while tongues of fire and billows of smoke rise up from this gigantic throne, the dog Toto goes over and pulls aside a heavy curtain, revealing a little old man who is speaking into a microphone and working his gadgetry to make the throne room seem so awesome.

These young people take personal delight in pulling aside the "curtains" that hide society's feelings of inadequacy and confusion.  But they are more subtle about how they 'bust' adults in their charade.  Star Kids came here to blend in, and to make subtle changes in the way humanity deals with these fantastic shifts we are undergoing. They know, only too well, that they will accomplish nothing if they "alienate" all of us in the process.     

It is soon becoming very clear that "The Great and Powerful Oz" is, indeed, a little old man who is scared and far from his home.  He doesn't remember how to escape the he puts up this facade to keep himself safe, even while he earns a few bucks on the side, in order to pay the rent.  Industries, Governments, Tyrants, and Local Authorities show us, in so many ways, how baffled they are by what is happening at this time on the Earth.  Why can't they just say so, so that we can all set about the task of figuring things out?     

The outstanding new movie,  "Whale Rider" speaks about the growing pains, trials, and tribulations of the Maori Tribes of New Zealand.  The story centers on the struggles that exist between the older generation, ancient traditions, and the wiser,  younger folks that are coming onto the scene at this time.  It explores gender discrimination, age discrimination, and it underscores what the will of the "ancient ones" really is.  We're not to be protecting the status quo anymore.  Things are in motion, and we dare not resist the tide.  Those who love the stories of the Children of the New Earth would be well-advised to check this powerful movie out.    

At the end of the story, the Grandfather/Leader of the Tribe finally comes to his senses, and becomes willing to see what has been in front of him all the time.  There is a scene where he sits by his granddaughter's bedside, praying she will recover from a near-drowning, while riding on the back of a whale.  Having finally been convinced of her ability and her right to lead the tribe, he places his sacred "leadership necklace" around her neck, and says softly to her:  "Wise leader.  Forgive me....... for I am a fledgling, new to flight." 

When we deal with these "new kids on the block," it would be well that we learn, like the grandfather in this movie, to acknowledge that "illusions" can go both ways.  We adults are NOT as wise as we make ourselves out to be.  And our children are NOT as dumb or helpless as we are making them out to be, either.  Like Dorothy, in the throne room of Oz, many of these little ones carry "magic shoes" that can take us all home.  They just don't realize it, and we haven't really been giving them help in this regard.  


Another recent high school graduate told me an amusing story about a fellow on his campus who managed to persuade all of his fellow students to stage a protest against the (diabolical) WASL test, here in Washington State (bad news bears on that one) encouraging everyone undergoing testing to draw pictures on their test pages, instead of writing answers to the questions.  He suggested that they draw about things they liked to do, who they really were, and what they were feeling inside.    

I am told this this fellow became the talk of the school.  The Principal was so professionally embarrassed that he staged a mock inquisition to find out who the instigator of the prank was.  What's more, Washington Governor Gary Locke came to the school and spoke sternly to the students about the affair---saying:  "Do you know what you've done here?"  (I am recounting this story to you exactly as it was given to me, from a student's point of view).

Yes, Governor Locke, I think we do know.  These kids were taking your ultra-sophistication and suggesting a better way!  They are, once again, rebuffing the idea of being collated and classified, like pieces of meat.  As long as you made the trip to the school, how come you didn't take time to examine (in an interested, friendly way) the mind of someone who was able to turn the attitudes of an entire school?  You could have gained a valuable ally in your quest to open up stronger lines of communication.  

The long and short of it was....the "leader" remained anonymous until after graduation, when he had diploma in hand.  Then, and only then, was his identity made known. Again, the principal was furious, but eventually saw the humor in the whole affair.  From the description I got, he sounded a bit like that Principal in the movie "Ferris Bueller's Day Off".......which, by the way, was one of the featured films that was covered by this young fellow's social studies class.  Kudos to that teacher, by the way!  Ferris was pure genius.    

We wonder why some high school students are cranking out viruses that stop industry and put hundreds of thousands of employees out of work for days on end.  Could it be that they're trying to tell us:  "Hey!  You're overlooking vast resources here, while running through the hamster wheels of your life!"  To be sure, creating computer viruses is NOT the way to produce change.  Neither is stopping traffic on a bridge, during rush hour, to protest President Bush sending troops to Iraq.  But kids have to find a way to be heard.  We can expect them to try nearly everything until they are given a suitable forum of their own.  They need an audience for their keen points of view.  Perhaps, though........... if enough traffic got stopped on the bridge that day, the U.S. wouldn't have to be eating crow before the United Nations today.  Nahhhh.......<s>          

As I watched the face of the 19 year old who told me the story about the W.A.S.L, thaty student leader had become a hero to his school.  He was described as bookish (quite brilliant), but he didn't lord his intelligence over other kids.  On the contrary, he was also quite social.  He had incredible charisma, and always went out of his way to help anyone he could.  Thankfully, he is on his way to Harvard now, on a full ride.  Harvard Law.  Gosh, I may even be getting some hope here, about the future!   

In the current transformative process that is happening on Planet Earth, we are all fledglings, new to flight.  There are no experts for where we are headed.  Humanity has never done this before.  This is a whole new thing we are doing.  Is it possible that we could all vote for energy to be our leader, instead of an individual person?  


Realizing that I am dealing with very alert and intelligent beings--I asked Jake (my 21 year old friend) about his own experience of "waking up" to spirit, while still residing within his family of origin.  Anyone who has considered the "Wandering in the Wilderness" material in "Star Children," knows that we Baby Boomers have had to deal with lots of ridicule and denial in our day, concerning all this "secret knowledge" we possess.  Eventually, it became obvious to us that, if we were going to survive in this world, we would have to forget some of those deeper things that we knew.  

Star Children are here to remember.  Forgetting is no longer an option for them.  The energy on the planet is too high for that.  And yet....... there are many tender areas of consciousness that can be permanently damaged if they are exposed to intolerance for too long a time.  Jake has simply learned how to camouflage himself (he calls it "shape shifting") that he doesn't have to deal too personally with "outsiders"--those who are threatened by who or what he is.  

"I dare not show weakness very often," he says.  "If I do, people around me tend to exploit it, and use it as a means to draw me into their games."   

I heard resonance about these feelings the other day while sharing with an older "walk-in" friend of mine.  She, too, likes to pick and choose who she is going to allow into her secret world.  Many, many people today, of all ages, are simply opting to be alone rather than having to feign "normalcy," or deny their expanding inner reality.  A good deal of people on who live on the transformational track are learning to simply become invisible.

Wrapping oneself in a cloak of chaos works very nicely in this regard. Jake says that all of life is really just a sea of chaos.  Though it is human nature to find meaning in things, those definitions are really each person's own construct. Each viewpoint has authority, but that authority only goes as far as a person's belief in it.  Beyond that, things just are what they are.   

"All around us......." he says...... "there are random energies--doing whatever it is that they do.  It is natural for us to find "possibilities" or assign an "order" to things--but those structures are also quite random.  It is our belief in them that makes them seem more 'real' than anything else. It seems that people today need to have a reason to feel things.  They have created a set of conditions that must be met before they can experience joy, anger, or before they can have peace.  But really........ those experiences are always available, if we just choose to let them happen.  We don't need a reason to be who we want to be.  We can simply choose to be it."


Jake says that older people today seem to still be looking for a deliverer.  In chat rooms, bulletin boards, in small groups, or in personal conversations--my young friend says that there is a lot of hero worship going on, as though a Christ Figure is going to arise any minute, and lead folks to their promised land.  The Baby Boomers acquiesced, and generally suppressed their need for developing the personal genius that is inside.  Many of us opted for security over individuality.   

Kids today do not wish to make this compromise.  And, if we think that these new waves of Meta-Humans are going to sit by forever, waiting for us to give over the reins of society to them, we have another think coming.  The awakened ones know that the only "deliverer" any of us needs is located right within our own hearts.  They are steadily focused there.  If we're wise, the older generations will begin focusing inwardly as well.  When that happens, we all may find that we're all being "tuned" in to the same stream of information and guidance.........An INNER NET, of sorts.        

One of my favorite lines from "The Star Children" material is:  "THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU THAT COMPLETE REMEMBERING WILL NOT FIX."   Indeed, there are movies that are saying exactly this, in many creative ways.  "The Matrix" is doing it, big time.  So is "Lord of the Rings," and now "Whale Rider."     

Complete remembering comes from the inside, not from the outside.  By this, I don't mean to imply that the "inside/outside" polarization still has power over us.  It does not.  We are ONE with everything and everyone (inside and outside). "As above, so below," and all that sort of stuff.  But many of us can't wrap out hearts around that quite yet.  We think we know what it means, but we feel otherwise.    

The movies can't do it all for us. They can only get our minds moving in a direction.  The rest is up to us, individually.  If a Christ Figure were to appear today, wouldn't society still tend to either deify him or crucify him?    

And so, the waiting continues.  The rich are getting richer, the poor are getting poorer, and our kids are watching it all take place, right in front of them.  To the kids, everyone seems just really scared.  They watch us pray, and go through our rituals for peace, safety, and national pride--even as we are busy sending young people off to war. It's really quite nuts.

This article merely scratches the surface of what is available to be discussed.  We're just talking about the feelings here, we haven't even gotten into Star Kid Solutions yet.  I hope that many other Star Kids out there will write to me, and tell me what thoughts and feelings they are entertaining.       

As I listen to these young folks, I don't particularly feel disposed to deify them, or their generation.  As somewhat of an energetic "upgrade" myself--a Star Seed, if you will-- I resonate with their vibe, and most of them can feel that.  Before Jake and I met, he told me that he that it was nice to know "someone else sees things the way I do."  And indeed, this is one of the greatest gifts that the Internet has to offer.  We think, we feel, and we share--with people all around the world.  And because of this, internal walls of separation are crumbling, national boundaries and societal differences are being transformed, and age groups are are beginning to mix and blend together again.........One day at a time.  One person at a time.  One life at a time.

More to come on this.  If you have any thoughts to add, please write me.  I may not be able to publish everything, but I surely will appreciate the contact and added perspective.
