    I agree. Focused thought with clear intention is powerful, moreover in collective. That is the way. That is the ONLY thing that will unite all of humanity: An intention of a great blessing for Earth and Mankind.

    Im glad to see you are there (in your perspective) Bill. Say thanks to Inelia.

    An please people, stop seeing it as lost cause already. It is lost when it is lost in Spirit. It is won when it is won in Spirit.

    Namaste, Steven

    Thought this was apt...

    ....The charade is over as we take off our masks, and Look around at
    the Family, we Had played with for so long in duality..We Hug and
    Remember the Truth, that we are God and Co-Creators and we are ALL
    created from Love, and We are All Equal.

    The winds of change are among us as the ushering of an Age begins a
    new life , a new story, and mother earth renews her lands.

    ....We now look ahead above the horizon and see our Beautiful Sun...
    shining ever so brightly on our newly painted trees and sands...we
    feel the breeze of freedom gently dissolving the ego's last stand, So
    that we can begin again With only Love within, as the True Leader, of
    this Emerald Planet made of Love .

    The Awakened Human Angels have made surrender a choice ALL souls have
    been seeking to remember since time began in separation.. .Surrendering
    Now we had to for the Ultimate Divine plan, where we Become all One
    for the Highest good and best outcome for all, and to usher into the
    Earth Un-Conditional Pure Love, the Energy of The Real Name and the
    Truth of our Existence...

    Our Hearts Now see the vision of the Golden age with it the same Joy
    and Freedom..where Heaven and Earth collide...
    and WE become one of Joyous Love, For this is The very truth and core,
    we are ONE of the same...

    Human Angels are reaching for others declaring they have made it to
    the land of the Free and are well prepared to Guide all out of misery,

    Take our Hand , the Path has been walked and now
    shown for all who have eyes to see and ears to hear, The Truth of The
    Heart is calling, this is why we all Came, To witness the Return of
    Light, and Humanity Free at Last!!!

    ....WE have Stepped away from the illusion that fear is something Real
    and have successfuly dissolved the ego that was keeping All from Being
    Free to Feel...

    Now to recognize Un-Conditional Love is finally here...Here to uncover
    the truth of one's being....not of human thinking for we are ready for
    spiritual living and being...

    Look for these Angels as they appear, before you "feeding the people,
    the freedom of Light, which is Information. .. sharing
    with others about Love, Truth, ..one must allow and feel..The Human
    Angels are awake and now are walking among these lands fulfilling the
    missions and contracts to bring Love back into the Hearts of man.

    ...and Welcome all into the Paradise, the Garden of Eden, in which was
    once only a dream now truly manifested and waiting for all Hearts to
    Awaken for it to be seen..Can you Now remember why we all came?

    The Human Angels have broken free from the bonds of their thoughts, to
    the UnLimiting Potential of Love forever after, to show the way into
    Heaven With Bliss, By Being Love in Simple Service to laugh, to play,
    and simply just BE.

    One must surrender and understand this is real..for when you awaken you
    will see us there....Love in Action, The Highest Possibility of
    Thought ever manifested.. .Because Love has Been requested, a Sacred
    prayer now is Answered.

    Life without worry, doubt or fear...for we, The Human Angels are
    guided gently by a Divine Plan..we heard the Clarion call, we answered
    and are well prepared.... We have been called into action...Look for us
    We are here....

    The Golden gate is now opening for all who desire to go... follow your
    Heart and inner compass...see the treasures, miracles and gifts for
    the Divine Human Angels have awakened to shine a light for the path
    which once was dark and has now been lightened... .

    WE have now taken our places on a new stage of Creation.... We were once
    the meek and all said disillusioned. ...and Now WE have spread our
    wings and are singing with our beautiful Voices, The Liberty Bell is
    ringing, The Truth is Stepping Forward..... to lift the Planet up above
    into a land of Unification from within the connection, Of One....The
    Moment is Finally Here...

    Heaven a land of Freedom, Love, and Living our Truest Passion...

    We have bravely traveled out of the depths of illusion.... .and
    Couragously stand as Lighthouses, Divine human Angels, We stand as the
    Light of Attraction, the Focus of One Love, Brilliant in all its
    facets, as the Atoms Gather together, remembering Divinity.... The
    Divine Plan is Unfolding with Love being the Only Answer, it is Now
    Love In Action. With Your Parents of Creation, Cheering You on.

    The Truth Will Set you Free, Royal Angels, Wake up, your Brothers and Sisters! LET THEM KNOW YOU=WE ARE FREE AT LAST~

    It's the same for me and I bet the same for a whole bunch of human. That is the good news. How we understand it or put it in words are as numerous as the number of people who practice it. I have been on Avalon since three years now and I have witness so many people saying the same thing. Hopefully, this thread will give it a new impulse.

    This is a fascinating interview! At first this sort of thing may be difficult to believe but, as the interview goes along, she is so consistent in the role she play and how she views herself that in the end, you tend to think she is being totally honest. I think there may be many people here right now to do similar work and I am glad for their assistance. It goes to show that some people's prayers or inner cries for help are heard and responded to by the creator or the universe.

    I am curious what sort of physical sensations Bill got (if any) while in Inelia's presence? When near power points or people who are "special" I will often feel a twitching sensation in my third eye. Does anyone else ever feel this? I am especially curious if Bill ever has this sensation, particularly in this instance? Thanks for another great interview, Bill! All the best.

    Before reading this article I had also been directed to do similar things which just felt right - my concious mind wasn't aware of the import of the process which you detail.
    I often sit gazing upon the earth in a place just out so I can see it all properly.
    I know this is unusual, but im drawn to observe the ET's in ships around earth; some come and sit there in my vicinity. Sometimes I like sitting in the centre of the sun or the centre of the galaxy knowing something is projecting through me.
    So thank you Inelia and Bill for crystallising this process.

    Hi Bill, this is so profound, i am practicing every day to acknowledge the fear and discomfort that comes with seeing and feeling the state of the planet, turning the white light and love on full blast surrounding, inhabiting the fear, and then letting it go into the source, as Inelia said, it seems that everyday i wake up the escalation of the catastrophies heightens and once again, fear starts coming in again. thus the daily meditation is imperative. Now, what are your thoughts about the Nebraska reactor, the theory that they are flooding it up there with the HAARP sites, in conjunction with the already weak Gulf of Mexico sea floor by BP drilling and Illenia comet coming in the 7th of July, to make for a disaster in the mid-west and east coast???

    Hi Bill, Inelia

    after thinking about this, few questions arised :-). When I do this, I always ask permission from the person where the focus or energy is to be sent or/and to his/her Higher Self. I can't do anything without that permission, whenever I have tried (for instance for a friend unware of this ), It never worked as the Higher self of the person "blocked" the "healing".

    But for what I understand from you, you do not ask for permission, not even from the HS of the target person, so I wonder, is this energy coming through you a higher "power" that even the HS of the target person can be overlooked and not taken into account?

    I saw that Inelia mentioned that the person has to engage, with its free will, in the contact, and that would account for some sort of permission, but in your example, I wonder how does it work when no "warning" has been given to the target and no permission has been obtained from him/her. This violates the law of free will. Not that I say it can not be done, I want to understand it so I can see if I manage to do it myself with people with whom I got a "no" :-)

    hugs!
    David
    cheers,

    What I'm not hundred percent clear on is: " ...But I don’t do anything, I don’t have any intention. I don’t have any attachment to outcome. I don’t have any curiosity. Nothing..."
    I understand that, but you as a being or entity, choose to respond to the call of Gaia, are you then not compelled to help or influence for the good?
    And that is full of intention the way I see it...

    Or am I seeing it wrong? ;p

    Dear Bill,

    This is written in the light of polite debate. I am sure what you feel is real for you.
    But it is not saying much to me, and perhaps a few others. The problem I see is that
    it promotes a belief that nothing has to be done, that people are beings of light and we shall over come.

    I totally agree the we more than flesh and blood, and that in essence we are enlightened.
    But there 'is' much work to be done. The New Age vocabulary seems to be promoting a
    life style of 'I am in love the universe”. A promotion of – it's all about 'me' and my feeling.

    This just fixates on self cherishing, and binds one to a small self with big concepts.
    If people are too sensitive to discussion this then they know they are not on firm ground.
    If ones hackles rise in any way, that means there is an ego there to be defended.

    I fact we should be grateful for this, to help strip away the sticky confusion surrounding consciousness.

    Wishing you all the best,

    Tony

    Welcome to my world!




    It does feel amazing to be able to do some good. So good you don't want to ...and have no reason - to stop.

    I stopped and 'came back' as I needed to be here, in 'da poop' for a bit longer...it seems.
    Funny, I always thought that "da poop" was the matter one had to work on, you know, the very matter "closer to one than one's hands and feet."

    But I probably am mistaken and got lost in the meandering labyrinth of the old grimoires...
    I think "da poop" here, is meant more in the military, or gangbanger sense, that of a firefight, rather than a reference to the one substance.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong.

    Also in the light of polite debate


    People who are new to deep spiritual teachings are easily confused.

    It is impossible to do nothing.
    This is a clear example of how spiritual teachings are distorted.

    The action of non action means you let your higher self act through you.
    In order for this level of spiritual vibration to function there has to be humility.
    There has to be a complete surrender to the will of God.
    It is the state spoken of by Jesus.

    The Father and I are one---It is the Father within who is the doer--- of myself I do nothing.

    The Sage the late Ramesh Balsekar explained this and similar ancient teachings with great clarity and simplicity.

    He said. Just try and sit there and do nothing.


    If it is in accordance with Cosmic Law The WiIl of God your Karma then thats what happens.
    In other words it never happens that you sit and do nothing.

    Rumi said

    I am a hole in the flute that the Christ breath flows through listen to the music


    That is surrender to the will of God and humility
    His words are still being quoted 100s of years after his death.

    It is down to spiritual energy and power.

    Its like asking a mouse to pull a log that an elephant lifts effortlessly.

    The spiritual power of Gandhi came from devotion to God via humility and surrender.
    To some humility can look like a weakness, anger can look like strength.
    Not so.
    Check the history of Gandhi and see what he achieved through non violence, meditation, and spiritual non-action which is extremely powerful.
    Its a question of spiritual power focusing--- that spiritual power requires much work to develop, before it is truly effective as non-action.

    Welcome to my world!




    It does feel amazing to be able to do some good. So good you don't want to ...and have no reason - to stop.

    I stopped and 'came back' as I needed to be here, in 'da poop' for a bit longer...it seems.
    Hello Carmody - thanks for the post!

    Could I just ask for clarification? Are you saying that you returned to the Earth in a human incarnation, purely in order to help sentient beings?
    Did you have a choice in this?
    If you had not incarnated on the Earth, do you know where you would have gone instead?

    Thanks.

    Thank you so very much, Greybeard, for your lovely post. Your clarity and poetry in explaining the inexplicable is one of the true jewels of Camelot. We are fortunate indeed to have you among us.

    And to all the other good members here who've shared their own sense of "doing without doing": What a pleasure to be in the presence of you all! We are indeed an exceptionaly evolved and capable group, and adding new members every day.

    Dear Bill,

    This is written in the light of polite debate. I am sure what you feel is real for you.
    But it is not saying much to me, and perhaps a few others. The problem I see is that
    it promotes a belief that nothing has to be done, that people are beings of light and we shall over come.

    I totally agree the we more than flesh and blood, and that in essence we are enlightened.
    But there 'is' much work to be done. The New Age vocabulary seems to be promoting a
    life style of 'I am in love the universe”. A promotion of – it's all about 'me' and my feeling.

    This just fixates on self cherishing, and binds one to a small self with big concepts.
    If people are too sensitive to discussion this then they know they are not on firm ground.
    If ones hackles rise in any way, that means there is an ego there to be defended.

    I fact we should be grateful for this, to help strip away the sticky confusion surrounding consciousness.

    Wishing you all the best,

    Tony

    Also in the light of polite debate


    People who are new to deep spiritual teachings are easily confused.

    It is impossible to do nothing.
    This is a clear example of how spiritual teachings are distorted.

    The action of non action means you let your higher self act through you.
    In order for this level of spiritual vibration to function there has to be humility.
    There has to be a complete surrender to the will of God.
    It is the state spoken of by Jesus.

    The Father and I are one---It is the Father within who is the doer--- of myself I do nothing.

    The Sage the late Ramesh Balsekar explained this and similar ancient teachings with great clarity and simplicity.

    He said. Just try and sit there and do nothing.


    If it is in accordance with Cosmic Law The WiIl of God your Karma then thats what happens.
    In other words it never happens that you sit and do nothing.

    Rumi said

    I am a hole in the flute that the Christ breath flows through listen to the music


    That is surrender to the will of God and humility
    His words are still being quoted 100s of years after his death.

    It is down to spiritual energy and power.

    Its like asking a mouse to pull a log that an elephant lifts effortlessly.

    The spiritual power of Gandhi came from devotion to God via humility and surrender.
    To some humility can look like a weakness, anger can look like strength.
    Not so.
    Check the history of Gandhi and see what he achieved through non violence, meditation, and spiritual non-action which is extremely powerful.
    Its a question of spiritual power focusing--- that spiritual power requires much work to develop, before it is truly effective as non-action.

    Namaste

    Bill, your insights have a strong resemblence to the ideas in daoistic literature. For those not familiar with daoism, it is stated that dao is beyond words and hence cannot be explained, yet when attempts are made it commonly refers to an all pervading conscious forcem, which is the animating force of all-that-is, all the illusory things, and the struggle is always to use your free will to get in tune with that, to join this subtle supreme flow.

    To illustrate that, this is chapter 37 from the Dao De Jing:
    Dao invariably takes no action, and yet there is nothing left undone.
    If you can keep it, all things will transform spontaneously.
    If, during that process, you should desire to be active,
    restrain with simplicity, which has no name.
    Simplicity, which has no name, is free of desires.
    Being free of desires, it is tranquil.
    And the world will be at peace of its own accord.
    This concept is not exclusive to daoism of course, it's elementary. Your story merely adds some insight to how it is applied practically, which is very important. As is also stated in the Dao De Jing, lots of people know these subtle truths, but few know how to apply them. It's this paradoxical mixture of being focused and yet not attached, anchor refers to the basic universal laws as formulated in the Handbook for the New Paradigm, greybeard quoted the Nazarene and Rumi, astrid cites the shamanistic concept of being "a hollow bone" and they all state the same thing, it's fundamental!
