The Tao is called the Great Mother:
empty yet inexhaustible,
it gives birth to infinite worlds.
It is always present within you.
You can use it any way you want.
Tao Te Ching v6
Heaven and Earth
During our first large scale entry into your historical process in the late Sixties, we learned much of the materializing patterns that presently restrain and define your collective expression of consciousness. Our experiences at that time and during the years that followed have formed much of the conceptual basis for these transmissions. At that time, the members of your species most responsive to our descending vibrational patterns were those who had not yet assumed clearly defined social roles. Esoterically, these individuals could be said to have had loose etheric bodies. But practically, they were individuals in transition, with few vested interests in the status quo. What made these individuals responsive to our presence was the fact that they had relatively flexible conceptual structures. Within them, we could plant the seeds of our Life-giving information with the greatest chance for successful germination.
We chose the years 1967 to 1969 for this first large scale experiment, because at that time in your global civilization there was an entire generation coming into maturity that was receptive to change on a planetary scale. The children of this generation will be those who will participate, on many different levels, in the great revelations of the late Eighties. This will be a truly momentous time, a time when the first contractions of birth are unmistakable. A large part of the purpose for these present transmissions is to prepare the parents of this generation for something unprecedented that is to appear in their children.

What Is Government?
What do you think of when you hear the word ‘government’? Does the Capitol building in Washington D.C. come to mind? Maybe you get a mental picture of the president or Congress. You might even think about words like ‘power’ or ‘control’ or ‘rules’ or ‘politics.’ But can you define ‘government’? Take a moment and try.
It’s hard, isn’t it? Government is so ingrained in our culture and so much a part of our everyday lives that most of us, when asked, can’t offer a very good definition of the actual word. Defining government, however, is the starting point for any study of the United States governmental system.
Dictionaries and scholars define government in different ways. Let’s build a word map to help us sort out these definitions. We’ll begin by writing the word ‘government’ and circling it. Then we’ll draw lines connecting each definition to our central term.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary offers three definitions of government:
- The group of people who control and make decisions for a country, state, etc.
- A particular system used for controlling a country, state, etc.
- The process or manner of controlling a country, state, etc.
