No Parent Left Behind
by Daniel Jacob
I love the title for this article. I was sharing with a few folks recently what Spirit has been telling me about our Children of the New Earth, and this phrase just tumbled forth from my lips. It makes reference to an Educational Program that is supposed to be important to the Bush Administration: No Child Left Behind. The fact that it is dangerously under-funded, and nearly forgotten in the wake of the Iraqi War, is of little consequence, really, when you look at things from a long-term perspective. Pretty soon our nation (and the world) is going to discover that these children have far more to give us than we could ever give them. And when it does, our priorities involving kids will instantly shift. But I'll get to that soon enough.
One of the people in that group with whom I was sharing is a professional grant writer for local non-profit organizations. I marvel at her ability to find and secure money for worthy causes---and, in questioning her a bit about the types of projects that came her way, I asked if anyone had ever wanted to form a paraprofessional organization focused upon nurturing the quality of INSPIRATION in our children. She told me no, she didn't think anyone had. What a pity!
The New Kids are beginning to awaken. All over the world, they're opening their little eyes, stretching their little arms, and yawning themselves into a new life. I know this because they are online, riding the search engines, looking for answers, when they discover the Star Children Web Site. As they begin to read the articles, many of them sit right down and send me an e-mail, saying: "This is me. You're talking about me here." I smile and say: "Good morning! Did you sleep well? Would you like some orange juice?"
That's my job, you see. Among many, many other Baby Boomers these days, I have been called to play the role of "mid-wife" for our Next Generation as they awaken. It's not a difficult job really. You just station yourself somewhere – ANYWHERE - and you wait. These kids seem to come right out of the woodwork. They come from poor families, rich families, middle incomes… all races, all religions, in every country of the world. And when they awaken, and realize what it is they are carrying inside, they will become virtually unstoppable.
An Idea Whose Time Has Come
Someone really smart once wrote: "Nothing is as irresistible as an idea whose time has come." That's how you might describe our New Kids, once they're awake. Until then, people ignore them, under-fund their education, and anesthetize them with drugs. But when the Behemoth awakes there will be a bunch of us old coots who station ourselves right behind it, and ride along in its wake.
I talked about New Kid Education awhile back, in a series I wrote for Planet Lightworker.com. The series was called "Educating the Educators," and I apologize in advance if any of you are offended by my tone in those articles. There are many fine teachers and administrators who operate in our school systems. And they're doing the best they can. But there are others who are (as my Mother used to say) "Not worth the powder to blow them up!"
No one, and I mean NO ONE, is going to believe what happens when these kids finally come online, by the thousands. I say this as a Visionary, not as a scholar. So I can understand it, if there are those who look at me cross-eyed, and wonder where I'm coming from.
Our Education Programs are being under-funded because, on some level, our leaders recognize that what we're trying to do with these kids is archaic, that we're just spinning our wheels. They wouldn't admit that, but some part of them must realize it. Since war and fear is more of what's on our national mind than anything else these days, we're pouring all our money there. So be it. The education style of yesteryear was focused upon distributing information and nurturing INTELLIGENCE. That was fine for then, but it won't continue for long. Einstein knew that when he wrote:
“The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
The rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honors the servant
But has forgotten the gift.”
The New Kids in our midst already have Innate Intelligence, and the Internet gives them immediate contact with all the raw data they might ever need. Things are either spelled out for them there, or they learn quickly where to go and get more. What they lack is INSPIRATION - a sense of PURPOSE and NEED in the world. Deep inside them, a voice is calling out: "I'm here now. I'm ready. What is my assignment?"© 2006, Daniel Jacob
Accelerated Intelligence comes in with these Kids, right from the factory. What the Baby Boomers had to study their heads off to achieve, the New Kids (I call them Star Kids) will do easily, while barely lifting a finger – IF (and this is a big "if") - they are allowed to approach subjects in their own time, and in ways that fit their interest patterns, not ours. If we try to force feed them knowledge, via discipline (rather than Inspiration) - they tend to want to spit it back in our faces. Or, they just get bored and depressed.
Learning Disabled? Hardly. What they become, at that point, is more like "Learning Discouraged." I'm not talking about average kids here. I'm talking about Meta-Human Consciousness, manifest within our newly awakening Children of the New Earth.
What folks call an "average kid" today would be considered, by these new standards, spiritually asleep. That doesn't mean they aren't great individuals, or they lack faith. Nor does it mean that what they're doing in their lives isn't just wonderful. What I am saying here is: There is no comparison between what we now consider an "average kid" and what will soon be awakening in our midst. The comparison wouldn't even be like apples and oranges. It would be more like apples and orchards.
Coming Into Their Own
Back in 1953, a Science Fiction story foresaw something of what I am speaking about here. It was written by Arthur C. Clarke, who also wrote the story line behind Stanley Kubrick's film "2001." His book was called Childhood's End. Since then, several other books have been released about Star Kids, Star Seed, and various other "wunderkind".
Having read Clarke's story, all these years later, I am convinced that he did receive a "vision" of things to come, in regard to these New Kids. It was a similar vision to the one I am getting. Their knowledge and powers were unbelievable--and their destiny had no limit. The story had somewhat of a dismal ending, though - a mass disintegration of life as we know it---because humanity couldn't seem to master the power surges that became available to us. He saw the New Kids as a menace, in their process of evolution and learning - inadvertently destroying whatever got in their way. This theme was later intensified in a novel called The Midwich Cuckoos, which was later made into the Sci-Fi Film Village of the Damned and its sequel Children of the Damned.
The prophetic views of Nostradamus, back in the 1500s, carried a menacing tone to them. And many of today's students of prophecy use his work as fuel to perpetuate the idea of mass disintegration during our era as well. Though it's true that these people actually do see something happening, on up ahead, it equally could be true that their interpretations naturally jump to death and destruction because their visions lack connection to the high-pitched ENERGIES that now exist in the world. Yesterday's visions spell DOOM without today's ENERGY, to nourish and sustain them.
It seems ordinary adults get quite nervous in the presence of extraordinary kids. Many have spent so many years neglecting and manipulating their offspring, treating them like chattel, and they assume the same fate might come upon them if the power situation was reversed. The more recent film Powder disproves this concept entirely. In that story, genius in a kid is seen as sensitive and kind--though we often find our hero suffering because of manipulation and interference coming from more "normal" kids and authoritarian adults, folks who just can't seem to understand.
At one point in the film, Powder (the lead character) makes a thunderous statement. While being interviewed by a group of teachers and school administrators about the nature of his giftedness, he cries out in frustration: "How long do you think I'm going to let you keep me here???!!!" When he says this, the room (literally) shakes, and the lights flash. The company stares at him, in fear and awe.
My friends, Powder's question is coming to us now from our own Children of Oneness. Those with ears to hear, let them hear that question now! They sit and watch us… and they wonder. Class wars, corporate greed, political trickery, corruption, an exploding national deficit, religious power struggles, these are the fruits of our "adult" wisdom and direction in life. Will our next generation just stand back and watch us DESTROY the planet that they, too, would like to call home?
Holding Us in Check
The title for "Childhood's End" refers to the evolution of humankind beyond the boundaries and limitations found in our current, 3D species called "homo sapien." What we are today is a CHILD, compared to what we are becoming. The new species, "meta-human", is where we are all headed. Some of us will live to see it, some of it will evolve into it through our children. Many refer to that level of humanity as "homo noeticus mutandis." It's pure speculation, of course. But what if they're right?
Clarke's story begins with an invasion of Earth by a group of Overlords from another world. They are peaceful in nature, and they hold the world in check for a time. By this, I mean they benevolently prevent us from blowing ourselves up while Earth's children continue to grow and develop their innate power. The Overlords refer to themselves as "Mid Wives for the New Humans" which I found fascinating.
In the book, it takes 100 years for that current generation to die off, and for the youngsters to move to the "next level." It took the Children of Israel 40 years to follow God into the Promised Land, in the Bible. Apparently, freeing humans from the brick pits of Egypt is one thing. Freeing them from worshipping "golden calves," in favor of love and wisdom, is something else entirely.
The Reconnections teach us that Earth, today, is also being held in check. Unseen forces are restraining the worst of our fury while our children stretch and yawn and drink their orange juice. I visited a discussion list recently which was organized to nurture Star Kids as they awaken. Their theme slogan is: "The Keys to the Kingdom are teeny, tiny." I loved that!
The "Overlords" of Clarke's vision are present today, within each of us. The Reconnections refer to them as "The Guardian Spirit." They are part of us, even as we are part of them. They keep us from degenerating into savages, and totally disintegrating each other. The Radiance that is flowing into our world from other dimensions would be driving us mad if it weren't for the presence of this Energy of Restraint. As the children learn, and grow, they begin using their powers in dreamtime, and in meditation. They become Grid Workers, Visionaries, laying down templates (in the energy) for what is to come. They work inwardly, on the Bridge Between the Worlds, speaking to our world leaders, as they sleep, telling them that surely there is a better way to do things.
No parent left behind. That's the goal. If need be, Star Kids will curtail their own internal "agenda" in order to help Mom and Dad with theirs. This time, it doesn't have to take 40, 50, or 100 years for humanity to find The Promised Land. As one of my Indigo Friends so aptly puts it: "The New Age is the Now Age!" So be it.
In days to come, we'll continue watching them, our Children of the New Earth, loving and appreciating them for their deft approach, their subtlety, their patience, and their love. They're investing far more in us than we seem to want to invest in them. They watch adult humanity fumble with their future, and they look upward, repeating the words of another famous "son" - also a Star Child - while He was interceding for humankind. They pray: "Father forgive them. They know not what they do."
