Carol's Current Column

by Carol Adrienne, Ph.D.

Carol Adrienne's work and teachings have been a great inspiration to me!  In August of 1998, about four months after my father passed away, I read about one of Carol's workshops in a Learning Annex catalog and synchronistically found her book on a bookshelf at the bookstore.  The themes of her teachings were familiar and comforting, as they confirmed the thoughts and ideas my father had shared with me shortly before his passing.  Her books and workshops ignited my spiritual curiosity, setting me on my soulful life path, which led to the very creation of SoulfulLiving.com!  Carol's participation has been an integral part of SoulfulLiving.com, at its soul level!  Thank you, Carol, with all my heart!

Good News

I love the Internet. And I know why. It’s fast and efficient, free, global, informative and interesting 24/7. It helps me do my work, and connects me to wonderful people all over the world. It opens doors. It creates change and possibilities.

I have two Internet-related stories to share with you. As February is the month of love, I hope you will love these ideas as much as I do. To me, they show that there is good news, and that our combined purposes, carried out with love, commitment, and perseverance are bringing about peaceful resolutions and needed changes.

    1. Intuition and Social Action. The first is how one of the recent Internet anti-war signature documents contains some reports that sound remarkably like the new interpersonal ethic envisioned by James Redfield in The Celestine Prophecy.
    2. Positive Focus. The second is a website that focuses only on reporting good news.

1. Intuition and Social Action

Think back to when you first read The Celestine Prophecy.

Remember how the nine Insights energized you as you read the story? The Insights unfolded before your eyes, and you began to imagine seeing energy. You became more aware of people’s struggle to control that energy.

You started to examine your previous conditioning, and saw that part of your purpose is to carry forward your parents’ unfinished dreams as you create your own path.

You learned that it’s possible to raise your vibratory level, which attracts a synchronistic flow of purposeful events.

You learned that you will be called upon to contribute your talents and strengths when the time is right, and you will know exactly what to do. In Chapter Nine, the priest, Father Sanchez says,

"This way of consciously relating, in which everyone attempts to bring out the best in others rather than to have power over them, is a posture the entire human race will eventually adopt. Think of how everyone’s energy level and pace of evolution will increase at that point."

The New Inter-Personal Ethic In Action

I know that many of you received the email in late January from MoveOn.org who circulated the results of their Internet peace petition, in addition to putting out an anti-war television ad, "Let the Inspections Work." Also part of their initiative was scheduling twelve local press conferences and various meetings in Congressional offices around the country attended by volunteers.

People Showed Up

MoveOn.org gave credit to all of those participating for the success of the movement. In their email of Jan 22, 2003, they said, "We didn’t expect, frankly, to have 100,000 new members join our organization this week. We didn’t expect to be able to deliver a petition with over 310,000 American signers…Senator Dianne Feinstein was amazed at the segment she received that was over 8,000 pages long." George Stephanopoulos showed the TV ad to Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld and discussed the dangers of war. The news program reached Australia, Pakistan, Russia, and Japan, and was a front-page story in the Washington Post. Nine thousand people signed up to participate in meetings in Congressional districts across the country.

One participant said, "It was fantastic! Probably the best meeting I’ve ever been at—ever. Eighteen regular people who came together as strangers, were in agreement with one another, speaking eloquently, passionately, respectfully and from the heart."(Italics are mine).

In the Prophecy, Father Sanchez describes the new interpersonal ethic that arises as the human race evolves:

"Guided by their intuitions, everyone will know precisely what to do and when to do it, and this will fit harmoniously with the actions of others…our sense of purpose will be satisfied by the thrill of our own evolution—by the elation of receiving intuitions and then watching closely as our destinies unfold."

A MoveOn.org spokesperson said, "… over thirty members of Congress signed onto a Dear Colleague letter to the President, asking him to let the inspectors do their jobs and abide by the UN process…In one of our most exciting moments, a pro-war-resolution Representative took a look at the letter, listened to our members, and then signed on the spot. Now that’s democracy in action!"

Martha Warner who attended a meeting with Arizona Congressman Kolbe reported, "The voices of several veterans…a VA doctor, a pediatrician, other doctors, nurses, retirees, teachers, grandparents, a law student, one after another, built a strong case (for encouraging weapons inspectors)…It was a bit uncanny. Not practiced, nor planned, but one by one, each person integrated his/her contributions into what had been said before. This was a very intelligent, well-informed, professional-diverse group of people, speaking in one voice for winning the peace, without war." (Italics mine)

In the last Chapter of The Celestine Prophecy, the character Julia says,

"Don’t forget the Third Insight. The universe is energy, energy that responds to our expectations. People are part of that energy universe too, so when we have a question, the people show up who have the answer." As our democratic system unfolds to another level, with the help of the democratizing influence of the Internet, higher level solutions begin to show up.

Carol Grant who attended the meeting with Colorado Congressman Tancredo said, "I was so proud to be associated with the group that showed up to Congressman Tancredo’s office! They were an eclectic group of housewives with children, high-powered businessmen, grandmas, artists, executive, Ph.D.’s and each spoke with such grace and eloquence. It was just amazing." (Italics mine)

In the Eighth Insight of The Celestine Prophecy, the character Julia is speaking with the priest and the never-named-character of the book and she says,

"We are having a conscious conversation. Each person speaks when the energy moves to him."

Sanchez further clarifies the process by saying,

"As the members of a group talk, only one will have the most powerful idea at any one point in time. If they are alert, the others in the group can feel who is about to speak, and then they can consciously focus their energy on this person, helping to bring out his idea with the greatest clarity."

You Are Making a Difference

I don’t know what you think, but I was quite struck by the resonance between

these recent events and the Insights. I have a hunch that the emerging socially conscious group of Americans called The Cultural Creatives by Paul H. Ray, Ph.D. and Sherry Ruth Anderson, Ph.D. (in their book of the same name) is probably larger than the 44 million they quoted in 2000. I think we are seeing exciting indications that each of us is being called to our destiny and being called to stand up when needed. More and more of us are choosing to participate in creating the future, rather than allowing ourselves to fall victim to unsustainable agendas.

As ongoing events are being organized in communities across the country; you might check http://www.unitedforpeace.org. if you feel moved to get involved.

2. Good News and Good Energy

I also wanted to call your attention this month to:  www.goodnewsbroadcast.org for life-affirming, thought-provoking, educational and entertaining  non-violent positive good news; and to www.goodnewsplanet  for good news in foreign language/culture.  Good News Corporation is a 501 C 3 Not-For-Profit. 

I interviewed founder Paul Sladkus for my book, The Purpose of Your Life, as I was impressed how he pursued his calling to provide an alternative to conventional media. GoodNewsBroadcast.com has dozens of articles and radio interviews (using RealPlayer) on a world of subjects from current events, how to manage time, children and parents, relationships, financial tips--you name it, it’s there. They are hosting an event called Pause The World 2003: PauseTheWorld.org "Too bad the only people who know how to run the country are busy driving cabs and cutting hair" -- George Burns (clicking on this quote takes you there)

Sladkus writes, "Good News Corporation is pleased to announce that our Pause The World event is being organized. Due to the success of last year’s event, we still believe that together we can get the Whole World to CALM DOWN, COOL OUT, BE NICE, and SAVE A DROP AND SMILE on this day. The environment was our focus last year, with the Earth Summit occurring in South Africa and this year our focus is to celebrate the Year of Water, as declared by the United Nations. We also will promote Peace Day, which has also been declared by The United Nations on September 21st. Our proposed Worldwide 10 hour TV and Internet LIVE Concert to be held in New York and other cities in the world. The Concert is scheduled for Labor Day, September 1, 2002 or what we have termed Pause the World Day."

Paul has invited me to do a radio interview on February 6, 2003, so I’m looking forward to that.
