Five people have been killed in a gunfight in Slavyansk, a city in eastern Ukraine held by anti-government protesters. The fatalities include three protesters and two attackers, who are believed to be from the Right Sector paramilitary.

The deaths came after a night attack on a protester checkpoint on the outskirts of the city. Four cars drove by the checkpoint and opened fire at the local residents manning it, killing two people and seriously injuring several others.

“They approached with their high beam headlamps on. Our man went to them and asked not to blind us, show IDs and open the trunk for inspection. Then an assault rifle got stuck out of the window and he was gunned down,” an eyewitness, Vladimir, told RT.

He added some of the people trying to flee the attackers were shot in their backs. One gunshot victim died later in hospital from a head wound, local medics confirmed. Two others are undergoing treatment.

The checkpoint was in the control of 26 civilians armed with bats. Their lack of firearms was due to a so-called “Easter truce” announced by both the Kiev authorities and the protest leaders to de-escalate tension.

Among the victims of the night attack is Sergey Rudenko, 53, who worked as a school bus driver, his wife told RIA Novosti. He lived in a village near Slavyansk and was guarding the checkpoint on Easter night together with his two adult sons.

As the civilians were pinned down, a group of 20 protesters with firearms came from the city. They opened fire on the attackers, killing two of them and sent the rest running. Five attackers were injured by the retaliating forces, protest leader, Vyacheslav Ponomaryev, said.

Donetsk region’s interior ministry confirmed fatalities in the gunfight, but said it has information on only three deaths – two among the local residents and one among the attackers. The identity of the attacker is yet to be established, the law enforcers said.

The protesters captured two of the attackers’ four cars, which were damaged in the gunfight and later torched by protesters angry over the deaths of their fellow Slavyansk residents.

Footage of the equipment confiscated showed firearms including a machine gun, a night vision device, aerial photos of Slavyansk, military uniforms, camping tools and other things handy for guerrilla warfare.

Later on Sunday the protesters claimed they had detained one of the perpetrators who confessed he was from the Right Sector.

“The young man lost his squad and was trying to flee Slavyansk hitch-hiking towards Kharkov,” one of the self-defense members told RIA Novosti. The detainee is 22 years old. He said he came from the Vinnitsya region to Kiev for the EuroMaidan protests and there he joined the Right Sector.

There was also found a medallion with Right Sector paramilitary symbols, which implicated the radical nationalist movement in the attack.

Right Sector spokesman Artem Skoropadsky denied the group’s involvement in the raid on Slavyansk.

“It is a blasphemous provocation from Russia: blasphemous because it took place on a holy night for Christians, on Easter night. This was clearly carried out by Russian special forces,” he told Reuters.

The attackers may have been planning a subsequent raid on the protester-held TV tower in Slavyansk, which is marked by a circle on the maps discovered at the captured cars, Ponomaryev said.

The protester’s self-defense force HQ told Interfax that there were reports of gunfire near four other checkpoints overnight, but no clashes happened at either of them.

In a separate incident in central Slavyansk, two people have been injured overnight, after a group of unidentified gunmen fired at them. Two young men were shot in the leg after they ignored an order to stop and tried to flee, RIA Novosti reported. The report gives no account of events after the shooting, but both victims are now in hospital.

Protest leaders ordered a curfew in Slavyansk between 12:00pm and 06:00am in response to the overnight violence.

Ponomaryev also called on Russia to send peacekeepers to Slavyansk to protect local citizens from further attacks.

“They are killing our brothers. It’s open warfare against the people,” he said. “They don’t talk to us, they simply kill.”

The Russian Foreign Ministry condemned the night’s violence on Sunday, saying it puts in question Kiev’s ability to disarm radical groups.

Protesters in eastern Ukraine have captured government buildings across the Donetsk region over the past two weeks. They call the authorities in Kiev illegitimate and are demanding a referendum to vote on autonomy for their region. Similar calls are coming from other eastern Ukrainian regions.

Kiev deployed military and special operation troops to the Donetsk region in a bid to crackdown on what they referred to “terrorist actions” by the protesters. The crackdown so far has been futile, with a number of troops switching sides to the protesters.

There are indications that the Kiev authorities simply do not have enough loyal troops to crackdown on the protest. On Saturday the Interior Ministry called on former members of the Berkut riot police, which had been branded as thugs and criminals by the new authorities, to return to service.

The ministry said the Berkut troops must forget their past grievances and protect Ukraine from what Kiev calls a secret invasion by a covert Russian operation. The allegations have not been confirmed by an OSCE observer mission in the Donetsk region.

Russia, Ukraine, the US and the EU signed an agreement this week in Geneva aimed at de-escalating the tension in Ukraine. One of the key points in it is disarming militias and paramilitary units in the country. But neither Right Sector and similar pro-Maidan groups nor the anti-Maidan militias in the east seem to be willing to take the first step.

RT: Russia on Eastern Ukraine shooting: Kiev must fulfill Geneva de-escalation pledge

Published time: April 20, 2014 08:57

Video screenshot

Video screenshotThe Russian Foreign Ministry expressed outrage over the deadly gun battle on Saturday night in the protester-held city of Slavyansk in eastern Ukraine. It said Kiev must deliver on its commitment to de-escalate the violence.

Russia, Ukraine, the US and the EU agreed this week in Geneva on a roadmap to calm tension down in protest-gripped eastern Ukraine. The agreement includes disarmaming paramilitary groups on both sides of the conflict.

Yet on Saturday night an apparent raid by a Right Sector radical paramilitary unit ended with up to 6 people killed in Slavyansk, a city in Ukraine’s Donetsk region controlled by anti-Kiev protesters.

Moscow condemned the violence on Sunday and said it indicates Kiev’s unwillingness to implement the Geneva agreement.

“The Russian side is outraged with the provocation, which indicates that Kiev is unwilling to put in check and disarm nationalists and extremists,” the ministry said in a statement.

The ministry added that Moscow “insists on the strict implementation by the Ukrainian side of its commitments to de-escalate the situation in southeastern Ukraine.”

The Geneva document agreed on Thursday after marathon negotiations is aimed at defusing the Ukrainian political crisis. In addition to disarming paramilitary groups, it provides for an amnesty for protesters not involved in violent crimes and preparation of constitutional reform to provide greater autonomy for Ukrainian regions.

Thanks to S.

Breaking News Release: Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014 at 4 pm GMT

Easter Proclamation Abolishes the Papacy – Common Law Court and Covenanted Christians issue joint statement

Maastricht, Holland and Rome:

Today, at sunrise on Easter, April 20, 2014, ceremonies in Rome, London, Maastricht and at the key energy centers of the earth proclaimed and invoked the spiritual disestablishment of the church of Rome and the entity governing it. The Maastricht Proclamation was made by Rev. Kevin Annett at the oldest catholic church outside of Italy.

The Proclamation was preceded by sunrise exorcism ceremonies at the Vatican and dozens of other locations under the authority of spiritual elders. To quote their statement,

“This third and final exorcism of the dark entity of Rome is accomplished. The power of that false church is forever broken, and replaced by a new spiritual gathering of free men and women under a new Covenant with the Creator.

“The new Covenant stands solely on the authority, judgement and laws of God, and nullifies the de facto rule of church and state that wrongfully posed as lawful and legitimate authorities over mankind. The new Covenant replaces those de facto, criminal powers with the de jure, lawful government of God that overturns and replaces all unjust, man made authority of church and state.”

The new Covenant issued today’s Proclamation, which follows.The Proclamation has supreme spiritual and lawful authority and binding power under the laws of heaven and earth, and all free men and women are empowered to actively enforce it.

I, Kevin Daniel of the House Annett, give witness and judgement today to this Act and accomplishment of God on behalf of the Court and the Covenant.

Issued by ITCCS Central, Brussels and the Covenanted Congregational Charter, New York – 20 April, 2014

………………

A GLOBAL EMANCIPATION PROCLAMATION

MADE UNDER THE LAW OF GOD AND MAN

(This Proclamation is issued and available in thirteen languages)

Invoking the Legal and Spiritual Disestablishment of the Church of Rome and its adjunct bodies, the Vatican and the “Holy See”

AND

Issued as a Binding De Jure Annulment and Emancipation Order by The International Common Law Court of Justice and The Covenant of Free Congregational Christians on Easter Sunday the 20th Day of April in the year 2014

TO BE PUBLICLY PROCLAIMED AND ENACTED

Let it Be Known and made effect by all men and women, persons and authorities that under the Supreme Law of God as embodied in the Common Law of Nature and Natural Right, as of this day, the institution and entity of the Church of Rome, its officers, clergy, adjunct and derivative bodies and corporate entirety, is now and forever abolished and disestablished as a corporate and a spiritual body. All people and powers formerly under its authority and influence and owing it allegiance are now and forever emancipated and freed from such obligatory servitude.

Having violated and waged unrelenting war on God and humanity through its history of crime, murder, apostasy, child sacrifice and idolatry, and thereby repudiated its covenanted requirement of duty to uphold the honor of Heaven and Earth, and the life and dignity of mankind, the Church of Rome has nullified its basis for existence and brought upon itself the status of a renegade transnational criminal organization in the eyes of God and man, and under the laws of both heaven and earth.

The ultimate authority of God as expressed in De Jure common law courts of judgment and in congregations of just, truthful men and women does therefore nullify the existence of the Church of Rome, the alleged “Apostolic Succession”, and its so-called “Canon Law”.

Therefore, as of this day, all such law, statutes, and all church offices and officials are declared to be forever abolished and possessing no effect or binding authority in heaven or on earth.

All Church of Rome officials and agents, commencing with Jorge Bergoglio, so-called Pontiff of the Church of Rome, every Cardinal of the Roman Curia, the heads of the Vatican Bank and Adolfo Pachon, chief “Superior” of the Jesuit Order, are hereby ordered to immediately stand down from and relinquish their offices.

The wealth, property and movable assets of the Church of Rome are hereby forfeited and declared to be under the common ownership of the People of the world, and may be peacefully seized and occupied by them.

Every member, employee and adherent of the Roman Catholic Church is hereby released from all of their vows, allegiance and obligations to the Church of Rome, and are freed to gather and worship in whatever congregational form that God and their conscience compels, separate from the disestablished Roman church.

The sheriffs and peace officers of lawful common law courts, assisted by the free people of the world, are henceforth authorized and encouraged to enact and enforce this Annulment and Emancipation Proclamation wherever possible, under the supreme and sovereign authority of God and the Law of Nations.

The people of God who have been lost and held in bondage within the spiritual captivity of the false church of Rome are now free to assemble in covenanted congregations which stand solely under the law of God and recognizing no other legitimate authority, for the establishment of God’s kingdom on earth.

The long night of spiritual tyranny and Vatican crime is over. Let the free people of the Earth and all true servants of God and Christ cleanse their lands of the Lie and the Murder formerly enthroned in Rome.

Proclaimed and enacted as on this Resurrection Sunday by The International Common Law Court of Justice with the collaboration of the The Covenant of Free Congregational Christians (The Covenanters)

This Proclamation is accompanied by a third and final exorcism and spiritual reclamation ceremony in Rome and throughout the world, on this Easter Sunday, April 20, 2014

In Coram Deo: Invoked in God’s presence – As God wills it, it is accomplished

A Lawful and Binding Act made under the Divine and Common Law. The power to bind and free now resides in God alone and through God’s free, covenanted people.

Koch Brothers-Style Free Society, by Stephen Lendman . . . I hope my friends in North Carolina take time to read this! :) ~J

Once I go to Stephen’s blog, I always find great articles: Stephen is a wealth of background info, and he shares it freely! Today he has two other articles of timely interest posted there: Kiev Violates Four-Party Agreement and Russian Bashing Continues. If you have time, I know you won’t be sorry you read them. ~J

Charles and David Koch are modern-day robber barons. They’re multi-billionaires. Forbes estimates their April 2014 net worth at $40.3 billion each.

Charles is Koch Industries (KI) chairman and CEO. David is executive vice president.

They’re $6 billion richer this year than last. They make money the old fashioned way. Behind every fortune lies a great crime, said Balzac. Maybe he was thinking of Charles and David.

KI is America’s second largest private company. Agribusiness giant Cargill holds top spot. Its estimated 2013 revenues were $136.7 billion.

KI’s are an estimated $115 billion. Both companies way outdistance number three ranked Dell. Its estimated 2013 revenues were $56.94 billion.

Heads of these and other industrial giants won’t go begging. Koch brothers want lots more billions than already.

Getting them any way possible alone matters. They go all-out for all they can. Charles was quoted earlier saying:

“Most power is power to coerce somebody. We don’t have the power to coerce anybody.”

Their deep pockets do their coercing for them. They want unfettered market freedom. They each own 42% of KI. They prefer remaining private. Charles once said KI will publicly offer shares “literally over (his) dead body.”

KI operates in dozens of countries worldwide. It’s in 45 US states. It employs tens of thousands of workers.

Its businesses include manufacturing, energy, oil refining and distribution, chemicals, fiber, intermediates and polymers, minerals, fertilizers, pulp and paper, chemical technology equipment, ranching, finance, commodities trading, plus other ventures and investments.

Both brothers buy influence. They finance radical right interests to get it. They bankroll neocon political action groups, think tanks, and ideologically over-the-top politicians.

They advance extremist limited government notions. They favor business friendly anti-populist policies.

They abhor regulations. They want freedom to swindle, cheat and grab all they can.

They want state enterprises sold at fire sale prices. They want first dibs to buy them. They want minimal corporate taxes. Ideally they want none at all.

They want their personal tax obligation shrunk to as little as possible. They want ordinary people forced to pay more so they can pay less.

They want social justice eliminated entirely. They want trade unionism weakened. Ideally they want it gone.

They oppose universal healthcare, financial fairness, public education, and environmental sanity. They love job-killing trade deals.

They’ll benefit hugely from Keystone XL’s pipeline’s completion. According to a report released last October, it represents a potential $100 billion windfall.

KI and both brothers separately own two million acres of Alberta, Canada land. It’s where Keystone XL’s proposed route begins.

KI subsidiaries benefit from pipeline construction. Tar sands oil development is on Koch Exploration Canada land. Koch Supply and Trading benefits from oil derivatives activities.

KI donated millions lobbying for Keystone XL’s construction. Supportive think tanks and congressional members are beneficiaries.

Charles and David’s influence is pernicious and then some. They want unfettered freedom replacing civil society restraints. They want information about their activities suppressed.

They want unchallenged control. They want nothing interfering with generating maximum revenues.

They donate millions annually to right wing causes. On March 27, the Center for Public Integrity (CPI) headlined“Inside the Koch brothers’ campus crusade.”

It spans America. It philosophizes about the “moral imperatives of free markets and individual liberty.”

It’s proselytizing goes way beyond Capitol Hill. It focuses on winning hearts and minds of college students.

It manipulates their minds destructively. It does so at 163 colleges and universities. They’re in 41 states and the District of Columbia. Many are left of center. Some have liberal faculty members.

Koch Brothers want students turned against them. They want their vision taught in classrooms. They claim otherwise. So do recipient schools.

Funds aren’t donated strings-free. Agenda politics comes with them.

Americans for Prosperity (AFP) advocates entrepreneurship freedom. It abhors regulatory restraint. It wants minimal taxes.

It wants “encroachment of government in the economic lives of citizens” halted. It wants nothing restricting what business wants to do.

It fronts for Koch Industries. In 2004, David Koch and KI board member Richard Fink were co-founders. AFP targets progressive initiatives. Millions are spent doing it. Funding surges in election years.

AFP’s agenda is corporatist, soulless, anti-labor, anti-eco-sanity, and anti-fairness. It’s against consumer protections. It abhors populism. It wants corporate crooks kept free from prosecution.

It’s pro-business, pro-war, pro-privilege, pro-super-wealth, anti-dissent, anti-democracy, anti-civil and human rights, and anti-government of, by and for everyone equitably and fairly.

Charles Lewis serves as American University School of Community Investigative Reporting Workshop’s executive director. Earlier he founded CPI.

“The Kochs are on a whole different level,” he said earlier. There’s no one else who has spent this much money.”

“The sheer dimension of it is what sets them apart. They have a pattern of lawbreaking, political manipulation, and obfuscation.”

“I’ve been in Washington since Watergate, and I’ve never seen anything like it. They are the Standard Oil of our times.”

Their lobbying expenses rank among America’s highest. They go all-out to have their interests served.

Ideally they want their message alone getting out. They pressure employees to support candidates they endorse.

They warn them about dire consequences otherwise. Their jobs are on the line. They’ll pay for disobedience.

What Charles and David say goes. They represent dual noxious influences. They’re more dangerous than corrupt politicians in positions of power.

They wield their own irresponsibly. Super-wealth lets them do what they want. They take full advantage.

For every dollar spent, they expect huge returns. They take no prisoners. They’re all take and no give.

They oppose labeling carcinogens found in their products. They want them freely used.

They’re mindless about potential harm to millions. Profits alone matter. People are expendable. Their welfare is unimportant. Business priorities count most of all.

Tony Carrk is Center for American Progress Health Care War Room director. In April 2011, he headlined “The Koch Brothers: What You Need to Know About the Financiers of the Radical Right,” saying:

“Any attempt to understand the modern conservative movement will eventually lead to billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch.”

“Using their vast wealth and connections, the Koch brothers are key players in bankrolling right-wing political action groups, think tanks, and individual politicians, using this array of political power to advance their ideological agenda of limited government and less regulation.”

“Chances are they are part of any recent right-wing attack you have seen lately.”

Charles and David use their vast wealth, business empire, and “political network to pursue their right-wing agenda at nearly every level of government. “

“Whether they are contributing millions in campaign contributions, spending millions on lobbying, or investing millions in right-wing think tank and advocacy groups, the Koch brothers’ influence is pervasive.”

Their extreme right wing agenda benefits them at the expense of popular interests. They want them eliminated altogether.

They want unfettered freedom to invest, speculate, trade and accumulate maximum wealth unrestrained. They want nothing interfering in their right to do so.

Anti-government fervor was a Koch brothers opportunity. They helped organize and fund Tea Party protesters. They turned their private agenda into a mass movement.

They took full advantage shaping and controlling an anti-big government uprising. They turned it into serving their personal interests.

They got millions of ordinary people to support what harms their own welfare. They got supportive right-wing media help.

Talk show hosts, commentators, and other media figures joined the movement. The New York Times earlier called it “a diffuse American grassroots group that taps into anti-government sentiment.”

It’s well-organized. It’s controlled top down. It’s a combination of loosely affiliated organizations. They’re ideologically anti-big government, anti-spending, anti-immigration, and anti-compromise.

They’re organized, funded and controlled by right-wing corporate lobbying groups. They’re manipulated to support business interests.

Companies like KI benefit enormously. It denies involvement disingenuously. Its communications director said earlier:

“Koch companies value free speech and believe it is good to have more Americans engaged in key policy issues.”

“(N)o funding has been provided by Koch companies, the Koch foundations, Charles Koch or David Koch specifically to support the tea parties.”

Their activities declined significantly since 2010. According to Professor Theda Skocpol, chapters dropped from about 1,000 to 600.

It’s still a “very good survival rate,” she said. Most groups shifted from national to local issues.

Doing so affected their visibility. Chapters place more emphasis on getting preferred candidates elected than pubic events.

Involvement in 2012 Republican presidential primaries was minimal. Perhaps lack of enthusiasm for unimpressive candidates was responsible.

After Mitt Romney chose Paul Ryan as his running mate, The New York Times called Tea Party lawmakers “indisputably at the core of the modern Republican Party.”

Koch brothers influence is very much involved. They bankroll Tea Party candidates. They do so with company and personal contributions.

They’re a pernicious influence on US politics. What benefits them harms most others.

They’re not going away. Their financial clout hugely influences US policies. Americans get the best democracy money can buy.

A Final Comment

Wall Street Journal editors gave Charles Koch feature op-ed space. On April 2, he headlined “I’m Fighting to Restore a Free Society.”

What he has in mind isn’t fit to live in. He lied claiming his vision would “create greater well-being and opportunity for all Americans.”

He means super-rich ones like himself at the expense of all others. He claims to oppose big government.

He wants federal, state and local politicians as well as bureaucrats benefitting him. He wants government resources helping his interests.

He wants social America destroyed. He ludicrously claimed he’s not “trying to rig the system.”

Millions spent lobbying buy influence. They’re not used for good will. They’re investments. Effective ones reap huge returns.

They go right to KI’s bottom line. They fill Charles and David’s pockets. They come out of ours.

His notion of “liberty” is more for him and less for us. Everyone should embrace his “vision,” he urges.

America already is unfit to live in. Imagine one run his way. Orwell put it this way:

“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”

Our Land, Our Life (Video), plus a comment about the Bundy Ranch situation from ~Jean, April 20, 2014

Jean

 I thought I’d posted this video, but maybe it didn’t happen so I could post it this morning with a personal comment — as many of us in the Western World begin our lives with a sense of renewal and starting afresh on this Easter morning. Where I am living, the sun is shining brightly!

We in the Western World have mostly lost our connection to Mother Earth, but many of us are regaining it now with great speed — almost exponentially. This film is so clear about what that connection means and the responsibilities that come with it. My sense of the Bundy’s and of people involved with them is that they are people of great integrity, who also understand this — at least better than many of us. They are the salt of the earth, as personified by Roy Potter, who deeply comprehends that this ending must come peacefully. As much as possible at this time, they understand the indigenous connection to the Earth, our source of life, and they understand that the land does not belong to some government somewhere who can come in and illegally kick people off it for their own personal financial gain.

Unlike many people who have developed incredible intellects through corporate education — to the great detriment of other aspects of their being, these people are far more balanced in that their lives and jobs demand every single day that they think for themselves. Unlike many people, they don’t need to run to someone else for confirmation. Instead, they have learned to trust their ability to make on-the-spot, tough, solid decisions and then act on them — and live with the results. They are still ‘in their bodies’ in a healthy way, because their way of life demands natural, wholesome physical activity. They are still in touch with their feelings, and their hearts are still open, or at least far more open than many. 

When the government messes with these people, I think in their arrogance they are foolishly opening a tinder box that if they were wiser they would keep carefully closed. (Please understand that I am now going to speak in gross generalities about areas of this country, which even so, I think have a certain over-all validity.)  Unlike those, for instance, on the East Coast of this country, who have been immersed in the death-dealing structures of corporate life and education for so long, these are the people, the people of the American West, people who have not been completely inundated by cabal thinking — who are going to step to the line and say, “No more!”  

Indeed, they are already doing so!

I think we all sense this, and that maybe my words here are just illuminating what is already in everyone’s consciousness. If you’re reading this, I think you already have some understanding of what I am trying to say here. I think I speak ‘truth’  when I say these people have our total support, and that it is they who are going to help release the rest of this country from its deep sleep,  so we can all stand up and take back our freedom. If we will listen to the guidance of leaders like Roy Potter, I believe we can and will do this enormous job peacefully. Indeed, I believe it is essential to our integrity as a nation that we do so peacefully!

My thanks to everyone who participates here and particularly to those who have stepped up to the plate (a baseball term for those of you not familiar with this American game) to help with finding and sharing information and articles. After three years of this, non-stop, I’m a little bleary eyed and very grateful for your help. The news/information flow has speeded up to the point where I can hardly keep pace with it. 

Love and hugs to everyone this Easter Sunday morning — and at this time of the Cardinal Grand Cross with all the enormous positive change that it implies,
~Jean

Jesus, The Lonely Rebel

My personal belief is that Jesus did exist. I think he very likely was an Ascended Master, who returned to implant in us the consciousness for these times that LOVE supersedes every other so-called law. (All such Masters must become fully human in order to live and work here.) I believe it is this that we are now remembering.  ~J

jesus-meekWith the emergence of a popular pope this Easter within a morally disintegrating Catholic Church, which is torn by sexual abuse and corruption, it’s time for a new look at the very human and lonely Jesus, the ultimate populist rebel with a timeless cause ~ love one another ~ but who also deeply knew something that most people chose not to be conscious of:

by Allen L Roland
S
ource: Veterans Today
T
hanks to G.

All great truths begin as blasphemies” George Bernard Shaw

As I wrote the last few Easters, I personally do not think of Jesus as meek and mild but instead as a determined and compassionate revolutionary ~ an evolutionary but lonely forerunner for a state of love and soul consciousness which we will all eventually surrender to. As such, God is an evolutionary process with which we all participate as co-creators. Only the church as an institution stands in the way of this common innate connection and empowering knowledge.

To many devout Catholics or far right Christians, a very human and unchained (from the church) Jesus would be the ultimate blasphemy ~ but I maintain that it is a great truth which has long been sensed by millions throughout the world.

Why have we never forgotten Jesus? A rhetorical question because the obvious answer is that he manifested a love that is also deepest within each one of us.

But Jesus was also profoundly alone for he knew something that very few people accepted or even acknowledged ~ which is precisely how Carl Jung described loneliness  ~  “Loneliness does not come from having no people about one, but from being unable to communicate the things that seem important to oneself, or from holding certain views which others find inadmissible.”

To discover the real Jesus ~ one must completely surrender to love ~ for only then will you be seeing through the heart; for only then will you sense and begin to understand that Jesus was the ultimate rebel ~an evolutionary forerunner and spokesperson for a state of love and soul consciousness that lies deepest within us all. A state of consciousness that he surrendered to and found during his undocumented years from age 12 to 30 years old and most probably during his travels to India.

But what about the resurrection myth and the millions of people who base their faith on the resurrection stories and other myths?  

Is it possible that Jesus was still alive when taken into the tomb and was stolen away by his followers and later appeared. BBC explores that possibility in this excellent 9 minute video entitled Jesus in Kashmir, India ~ See short video

Or is it possible that Jesus appeared to his followers as an After-Death experience as millions of people have experienced, including myself. This is not unusual now but it certainly was 2000 years ago.

Gallup has revealed that nearly half of all Americans believe that they have been in contact with someone who has died, including myself ~ usually a dead spouse or sibling who they had a deep loving connection (In my case, my mother and my twinAnother important point in Gallup’s study was that the major factor associated with contacting and experiencing the dead was a belief in a loving God, rather than a judgmental one.

In that sense, Jesus represents the transition from an externalized old testament God of wrath and judgmentto an internalized new testament god of love and a state of soul consciousness.

My own mother appeared to me the night she suddenly and unexpectedly died in 1987 ~ some 3000 miles away. Not only did she tell me how deeply she loved me but she also said that she knew of this Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that I know and live  ~ Allen, I Know, Allen, I Know ..

I had sent her a copy of my Unified Field Theory some months prior to her death which can best be summed up in this one statement ~ The basic underlying and uniting force of the Universe is a psychic energy field of love and soul consciousness ( The Unified Field ) which lies not only beyond time and space but ALSO beneath our deepest fears and whose principle property is the universal urge to unite.

So my mother appeared to me, much like Jesus did with his followers, and told me that she was now in that same state of unconditional love and soul consciousness which I call The Unified Field, thus ~ Allen, I Know, Allen, I Know ..

Did Jesus not do the very same thing when he appeared to his followers after his death ~ proving to them that the kingdom of heaven was within them in the form of a state of soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space.

It makes sense that Jesus as a young child sensed his destiny and traveled elsewhere in a quest to not only find himself but to get in sync with his destiny. Several authors have claimed to have found proof of the existence of manuscripts in India and Tibet that support the belief that Jesus was in India during that time in his life. Some assert that Jesus lived the life of a Buddhist and taught Buddhist ideals to his disciples. Their work follows in the footsteps of the Oxford New Testament scholar Barnett Hillman Streeter, who established in the 1930s that the moral teaching of the Buddha has four remarkable resemblances to the Sermon on the Mount.

So let’s say that Jesus, like many of us, was originally looking outside for God and true meaning in his life and towards the end of those 18 years realized that what he was externally looking for was instead deepest within him ~ a love, a state of soul consciousness and a kingdom of heaven so deep that it existed beyond time and space and it was calling him to service.

Imagine him returning home armed with this burning cause ~ a heartfelt knowledge and eager to share this truth with friends, neighbors and disciples and then also imagine his shock of witnessing the decadent Roman culture and externalized world that existed at that time ~ which eventually became threatened by his teachings and rebelled against his message of love, inner freedom and individual power.

It was then that Jesus became Jesus, the lonely but unorthodox revolutionary, spreading his message of love and touching a loving chord that has never been forgotten because it also exists deepest within each one of us ~ regardless of how well hidden it is under blankets of unworthiness and self-doubt.

Today, Jesus would be considered not only a rebel, if not a terrorist,  and most certainly a threat to the establishment and the status quo ~ as he most certainly was 2000 years ago.

Indeed, Jesus was the ultimate rebel but Jesus has been misused and misinterpreted for thousands of years and is still being misunderstood under the current banner of Christianity. 

Substitute the word emperor with the Pope and you get the current big picture of how Christianity has been misused and with 80% of the American military being Christian ~ are we not still fighting the crusades against the media labeled primitive, fanatically religious, hateful Middle East Terrorists ~ when in reality they are our brothers and sisters barely surviving in illegally occupied and economically ravaged countries.

So much for Christianity, let’s get back to Jesus ~ the lonely rebel for love who still calls to us from deep within to open our hearts and find  ‘ ‘The Way of the heart‘.

It is my contention that Jesus did not die for us (contrary to the Catholic church) but, instead he lived for us for he was indeed a determined revolutionary and an evolutionary forerunner for a state of love and soul consciousness which is also deepest within each one of us ( the Unified Field ) state of love and soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space and is one in the same with the experience of an after death and near death experience.

Dr. Eben Alexander, in his bestselling book Proof of Heaven writes about his near death experience and says the same thing ~ it’s all about love;

Proof of Heaven,  p. 71 ~ “If I had to boil this entire message down to one sentence, it would run this way:“You are loved.”  And if I had to boil it down further, to just one word, it would (of course) be simply:Love.

Love is without doubt, the basis of everything.  Not some abstract, hard-to-fathom kind of love, but the day-to-day kind that everyone knows – the kind of love we feel when we look at our spouse and our children, or even our animals.  In its purest and most powerful form, this love is not jealous or selfish, but unconditional.  This is the reality of realities, the incomprehensibly glorious truth of truths that lives and breathes at the core of everything that exists or that ever will exist, and no remotely accurate understanding of who and what we are can be achieved by anyone who does not know it, and embody it in all of their actions.  Not much of a scientific insight?  Well, I beg to differ.  I’m back from that place, and nothing could convince me that this is not only the single most important scientific truth as well.”

The controversial Catholic theologian Hans Kung in his thought provoking book On Being A Christian has helped to demythologize the bible by attempting to rediscover the true Jesus:

” Against all tendencies to deify Jesus, it must constantly be stressed today that he was wholly and entirely man with all the consequences of this (capacity for suffering, fear, loneliness, insecurity, temptations, doubts, possibility for error ) Not merely man but true man. 

Jesus was a definitive threat to the establishment and they, in essence, eventually killed the messenger ~just like they did with Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

For those of you who are waiting for Christ’s return, I will tell you to look within, for it is there that he resides in our deepest propensity to unite with and love one another ~ and we all have a part to play in that gradually unfolding loving plan.

Jesus wasn’t just a rebel. He was the ultimate rebel. And now his call, “Follow me,” seems a whole lot more radical because what he really means is go inside, open your heart and find and travel the path or WAY of your heart.

81% of Americans say they are Christians which is now the world’s largest faith ~ with 2 billion believers or roughly 33% of the earth’s population. Newsweek reveals that 75% of them say that Jesus was sent to earth to absolve mankind of its sins.

Let’s get something straightJesus was not sent from anywhere for Jesus was divinely human ~ no different than you or myself at birth ~ and the humanizing of Jesus is an essential step in the journey towards taking responsibility for that same love deepest within each one of us. 

As such, the natural birth of Jesus and the loving relationship of Jesus and Mary Magdalene completely humanizes Jesus, takes him off the unreachable pedestal the Catholic Church and others have put him on ~and makes him finally accessible to the world through love and Relationship.

As such it also places women, ( the divine feminine ) as symbolized by Mary Magdalene, in their rightful place at the right of Jesus ~ and certainly on more than equal footing with men. In September 2012, Harvard University divinity professor Karen L. King made a stunning announcement, revealing the existence of an Egyptian papyrus fragment that contains the first-known explicit reference to Jesus being married. The fragile relic, measuring only 1.6 inches by 3.2 inches, appears to have been cut from a larger document and contains eight incomplete lines of Coptic script scribbled by a nubby pen. The fourth line of the text contains the words “Jesus said to them, ‘My wife,” followed in the next line by “she is able to be my disciple.”

And why not ? It makes total sense to me that in the much needed process of humanizing Jesus, that we realize that he was married  and used that love to perfect himself.

Teilhard de Chardin said it beautifully ~ The only right love is that between couples whose passion leads them both, one through the other, to a higher possession of their being….. Union, the true upward union in the spirit, ends by establishing the elements it dominates in their own perfection.

We all have a personal covenant with Jesus in our capacity to unconditionally love one another as he manifested that love in his life. It is my potential to love as Jesus loved that fills me with faith ~ not the immaculate conception, resurrection story and other myths. But the path is the lonely path from the mind to the heart and it is indeed the hero’s path.

And it is the fuel for my heart-centered work with all my clients.

When you walk in love, you walk with Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Gandhi, King and all the other great souls of our planet ~ Happy Easter.

Power Outside The Matrix: a different consciousness, by Jon Rappoport ,April 19, 2014

www.nomorefakenews.com 

People are fixated on rules and boundaries and systems. They are waiting and hoping for some kind of salvation, which will be delivered through a system.

This is a form of mind control. It’s ultimately self-imposed.

The person who lives a creative life finds another aspect of his own mind.

This different consciousness starts with inventing space, which has always been the premise of art. Always.

When I was putting together my new collection, Power Outside The Matrix: The Invention Of New Reality, I was very cognizant of these things.

The journey and the voyage are invented through and by imagination, which begins from open space.

We are dealing with The New. Old notions of cause and effect don’t apply. The past doesn’t determine the present. The way a religion or a science paints a cosmology is irrelevant.

This isn’t a loop of feedback consciousness or problem-solving consciousness. It’s creative consciousness. It can go anywhere.

People are looking through tunnels of ideology. They create what they think will align with that ideology…and they want to go no further. All ologies and isms are primitive reflections of needs for systems.

Freedom isn’t a system.

But freedom needs creative power, otherwise it just sits there and becomes a lonely statue gathering dust in an abandoned park.

At one time or another, every human being who has ever lived on this planet has abandoned creative power. The question is: does he want to get it back?

It never really goes away. It is always there. It is the basis of a life that can be lived. A life that can be chosen. People instead choose roles that don’t require that power. They think this is a winning strategy.

It isn’t.

When the Greeks invented their line-up of Olympian gods, they made sure they entered Hermes in the list. He was the god of reversal, tricks, and the disappearance of ordinary reality. He created upside down and inside out. He confounded systems.

However, as usual, the Greeks posited creative power in their gods and forgot that they, the humans, were artists of alternative worlds.

That was the cosmic mistake.

This mega-collection, Power outside The Matrix, features a long section called: Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation.

This section is filled with specific examples of my past investigations. Based on 25 years of experience, it shows you how to take apart and put together data that lead to valid conclusions.

It is far more than a logic course.

It’s an advanced approach to analysis.

Establishing power outside The Matrix requires that a person be able to deal with today’s flood of information, misinformation, and disinformation. I’ve left no stone unturned in bringing you a workable approach to analysis.

There is a further extensive section titled, A Writer’s Tutorial. People have been asking me to provide this Tutorial, and here it is in spades. But it’s not just for writers. It’s for any creative person who wants to grasp his own power, understand it, and use it to reach out into the world.

My Tutorial exposes you to lessons that go far beyond what is normally taught in writer’s seminars. In fact, several core concepts in the Tutorial contradict ordinary writer’s seminars, and thus give you access to inner resources that would otherwise be ignored.

Another section of this mega-collection, titled Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality, features creative exercises you do on a daily basis that will help you move toward the goal of power outside The Matrix. The exercises are all about increasing your energy and stability—and about the invention of new spaces.

Access to your internal energy, in huge amounts, is necessary for a life outside The Matrix-rather than relying on the illusory energy that The Matrix seems to provide.

This is a key fact. I’ve developed the exercises for exactly that purpose: your energy, your dynamism, independent and self-sufficient.

And finally, I have included a number of audio seminars that offer a wider perspective about The Matrix and what it means to live and work outside it.

Here are the particulars. These are audio presentations. 55 total hours.

* Analyzing Information in the Age of Disinformation (11.5-hours)

* Writer’s Tutorial (8.5-hours)

* Power Outside The Matrix and The Invention of New Reality (6.5-hours)

Then you will receive the following audio presentations I have previously done:

* The Third Philosophy of Imagination (1-hour)

* The Infinite Imagination (3-hours)

* The Mass Projection of Events (1.5-hours)

* The Decentralization of Power (1.5-hours)

* Creating the Future (6-hours)

* Pictures of Reality (6-hours)

* The Real History of America (2-hours)

* Corporations: The New Gods (7.5-hours)

I have included an additional bonus section:

* The complete text (331 pages) of AIDS INC., the book that exposed a conspiracy of scientific fraud deep within the medical research establishment. The book has become a sought-after item, since its publication in 1988. It contains material about viruses, medical testing, and the invention of disease that is, now and in the future, vital to our understanding of phony epidemics arising in our midst (and how to analyze them). I assure you, the revelations in the book will surprise you; they cut much deeper and are more subtle than “virus made in a lab” scenarios.

* A 2-hour radio interview I did on AIDS in Dec 1987 with host Roy Tuckman on KPFK in Los Angeles, California.

* My book, The Secret Behind Secret Societies

(All the audio presentations are mp3 files and the books are pdf files. You download them upon purchase. You’ll receive an email with a link to the entire collection.)
