In a Rhino, Everything

In the story of interbeing, what happens to anything happens in some way to everything.

Charles Eisenstein

I received the following email from a young woman, a student at an elite law school. I want to quote it in full, because it cuts so deep to core issues so many change agents face.


I don’t cry very often. But this week I cried twice. For the rhinos. It breaks my heart that they’re going extinct. In order to make myself feel better, I try to intellectualize this. It’s totally irrational, I say to myself, to be sad for the rhinos. Why not be sad for the fairy shrimp, going extinct right here in Southern California?

There are so many things to be sad about: police shootings, for example. Right now I’m writing a memo on what constitutes excessive force during arrest and when you type in excessive force and qualified immunity to Westlaw, more than 600,000 cases come up. These cases represent a tiny fraction of incidents with police brutality; far more go unreported or are never litigated. We have a police violence epidemic in this country. I could be sad about that. And here I am reading these cases—and it’s awful (the tasing, the shooting, the beating, the pepper spray, the sustained long term injuries, the easiness of getting out of excessive force charges) and I never cry.

And then I read some articles about the last, aging, white rhinos in zoos around the world and I fall to pieces. How can we have failed so badly? And you’re right Charles, it’s grief for the dying biosphere (I have long since stopped equating the environmental crisis with global warming, and I HATE it when people do that).

There’s this kid in my class who really gets under my skin. He says annoying things like, “I love it when I see pictures of McDonald’s in other countries, or African kids wearing Nikes, because it’s like we’ve won. Our culture is supreme.” I gave him a look when he said this. And he knows how I think because we’ve had conversations so he said, “I can’t help it, I’m pro-American.” And I said, “I’m pro-biosphere.” And he says, “I think we should only keep the animals that we need to survive.” And I’m so shocked by this stupidity that I’m rendered speechless. I literally couldn’t talk to him for a few minutes. I didn’t WANT to talk to him. I felt a little nauseous. Finally, I said, “I don’t think that’s possible.” And he said, “Well we can TRY.” Like it’s a good thing to try for. He gives me a panicky feeling because I think what if he’s right? What if the future just contains concrete with cows, pigs, chickens, and their shit? What would we do with all their shit? (Previously he has told me that he could never care for an animal, that an animal’s suffering has no effect on him).

The scariest thing about this kid is that he’s totally pro-carbon controls. He believes in global warming and that it’s a threat and that we should do something about it. I would prefer a climate change denier with a love for animals. Really, I would.

I’m really trying not to other him. I sat next to him in class this semester because I know I have something to learn from him. I try to be kind to him, even though the things he says make me ill. And it’s not from a place of moral purity either. I’m trying to understand this behavior, this kind of thinking, because if I never understand it I’ll never be able to confront it in a meaningful way. It’s a challenge, though. Sometimes I feel my innate snarkiness rising to the surface, but I know this is just a defense mechanism on my part. Any suggestions?

There’s something, though, besides grief. The grief is compounded by that horrible sense of helplessness. I feel like I have absolutely no control over the fate of the rhino. I do my work, you know? I made all A’s last semester… I’m disciplined. I’m studious. But I’m not doing anything real.


Like this young woman, I do not know why some tragedies penetrate me with grief while others do not. There are endless things to weep for. Because we cannot weep for each one that comes across our awareness, we might form emotional callouses just in order to function. And then from time to time something pierces those callouses, and all the other unmourned tragedies follow it through the breach. Sometimes, therefore, it is a seemingly tiny thing that brings me to tears or heart-wrenching agony: a parent shaming a two-year-old child, a woman unfairly fired out of sex discrimination. Or it could be a singular incident of brutality out of millions that gets under my skin. Each of them represents the rest. In fact, each contains the rest. Next time you travel to another planet and see caged wild animals there going extinct, you will know that planet also warehouses its elderly in nursing homes. A world in which the last white rhinos are aging in zoos is also, necessarily, a world of incarceration, war, racism, poverty, and ecocide. It is impossible for one to exist without the others. All are part of the same unholy matrix.

Because each of these contains the others, when we grieve one of them we grieve them all. It doesn’t matter if it is the rhinos or police brutality that pierces you. They are all expressions of the same underlying mythology: the story of a discrete and separate self in a desacralized world that is other. A level up from there live the usual systemic culprits: racism, usury-based capitalism, patriarchy, the industrial system, and so on.

Consider the classmate she describes. One would like to indulge in snarkiness and call him some clever variant of stupid or evil. Actually, he is blinkered by the story he lives in. I mean something deeper than the mythology of American exceptionalism, neoliberal development, and technological triumphalism. It goes all the way down to metaphysics. If you take for granted a universe of generic building blocks, devoid of the qualities of a self, devoid of an internal intelligence or evolutionary will, then our license to manipulate nature and materiality suffers no limit except for that posed by perverse unintended consequences that we can, in principle, predict and control with just a little more information and technological know-how. Why not, then, keep only the animals that are useful to us? In the story of separation, we are fundamentally separate from the rhinos. What happens to them needn’t affect us. Sentimentally it might, but not rationally. (And here we see how the dominant worldview pits sentiment against reason and heart against mind.)

The same goes for the biosphere as for the rhinos. In the story of separation, what happens to the biosphere needn’t affect us, except as a temporary practical matter until we develop the technology to make us independent of nature. That is the world of concrete and pig shit that my friend dreads. It is a myth, that story. In fact what happens to the rhinos does affect you and me. When you look at that picture, can’t you feel part of yourself going extinct too?

Here is why her observation that she would prefer an animal-loving climate change denier to this person rings true. Love violates the story of separation. Love is the expansion of self to include another, whose well-being becomes part of one’s own. The healing of our planet will not come without love for our planet. It certainly won’t come from technological solutions that seek to more competently deploy resources and manage consequences. That is the path toward biofuel plantations, nuclear power plants, and geoengineering schemes that threaten catastrophic consequences. If someone loves the rhinos, and loves the mangroves, and loves the forests, and loves the coral reefs, and loves the West Virginia mountaintops and the rain forests threatened by stripmines and the waters threatened by oil spills, it doesn’t matter if they believe in climate change, they will oppose every new coal mine, oil well, fracking project, and copper mine. Conversely, without love behind it, no carbon controls will make a difference in the long run.

If we want to change the minds of people like the woman’s classmate, head-on debate isn’t going to work. No one can logically persuade somebody to fall in love. We might be able to convince them to support one policy over another on utilitarian grounds, but engaging the planet as an instrument of our utility is what has gotten us into this mess to begin with. It reminds me of the “pragmatic” opponents of the Vietnam War and Iraq War who didn’t question war as a tool to promote American interests (nor did they question the concept of American interests), but who merely said that this particular war wasn’t working. The door to more war remained open. Similarly, when we say, “Let’s stop using fossil fuels or we’re screwed,” and adopt anthropocentric interest as our primary argument, there is little to say for the rhinos. Why not try to create a world of concrete and shit, if we can do it, with maybe a few parks for aesthetic relief?

Seeing the futility of overcoming such people through debate, I have turned toward deeper levels of engagement. Why would he and millions like him be attracted to the story of separation that seeks to exploit and manipulate the world? Maybe it has something to do with he himself feeling like an instrument, exploited, manipulated… He is in the same position that he wishes to put the animals and the planet. He feels out of control and near panic in the face of uncertainty. Therefore he wants to feel like he is in control, and humanity (as a proxy for the self) being in control of things feels good to him too. Not to psychoanalyze the poor guy, but if we are serious about changing the beliefs that drive ecocide (rather than gaining the psychological gratification of winning an argument) it is important to understand the experience of life behind those beliefs.

I think this young woman is therefore on the right track, showing him kindness while – and this is essential – not allowing herself to be dominated by him. In a worldview of winning and losing, no one will go out of their way to serve your interests unless you dominate them, force them, pay them. In its extreme, that world has no love, no real kindness, no generosity that isn’t a device to get more. That is why unforced kindness and generosity have the power to puncture the story of separation.

The situation is parallel to the challenge that altruism poses for conventional evolutionary biology. That is part of the “worldview of winning and losing,” and that worldview’s selfish genes are destined for the dustbin of history along with economic’s self-interested individuals and political narratives of dominance and nation-state competition. Looking at the deteriorating state of our society and the planet, that worldview that once held us as the obvious winners is no longer working very well. Will we cling to it all the more tightly, in fear and desperation, or will we let go?

The kindness my friend shows her classmate and the desire to understand his experience of the world translates onto the level of systems and politics. What is the story our opponents stand in, the perpetrators, the ones we want to blame? What kind of life experience attracts them to that story? What are the secret ways that it lives in ourselves? When we know what it is like to be them, we will be far more capable of disrupting the narratives that scaffold our world-destroying machine. This is called compassion. It isn’t a substitute for strategy and action. It illuminates new strategies and makes all action more effective, because we can target them at the deep causes rather than forever battling the symptoms.

What is it like to be a rhino? To be a policeman? A corporate executive, a terrorist, a killer? What is it like to be a river? These questions arise naturally in the story that Thich Nhat Hanh named interbeing, that holds us as interdependent on every level, even that of basic existence. It is the successor to the story of the separate self, and it opens us to compassion and grief alike.

The lens of interbeing also relieves the helplessness the woman speaks of at the end of her letter. Even as the crises of the world each contain the others in an unholy matrix, the same is true for the responses. To respond to any is to respond to all. I imagine myself talking to a rhino in a cage. She asks me, “What were you doing with your life, while I was going extinct?” If I answer her, “I was working to save the coral reefs,” or “I was helping to stop the navy from using whale-deafening sonar,” or “I spent my life trying to free men from death row,” then she is satisfied, and so am I. We both know that somehow, all of these endeavors are in service to the rhinos too. I can meet her gaze without shame.

In the story of interbeing, what happens to anything happens in some way to everything. We are free then to listen to what calls forth our passion, our care, and our gifts, whether the need that calls them seems large or small, consequential or invisible. Because each contains all, we can be peaceful in our fervor and patient in our urgency.

We can be peaceful in our fervor and patient in our urgency. We let in the grief, and compassion and clarity follow it in. We stand in awe of the intelligence that weaves it all together and orchestrates the mysterious causal pathways that link the rhinos to the prisons to the corals to the cancer wards. I leave you with some words from Chogyam Trungpa: “When you can hold the pain of the world in your heart without losing sight of the vastness of the Great Eastern Sun, then you will be able to make a proper cup of tea.”

You chose your body…your body did not chose You!

Blossom Goodchild and The Federation of Light

Hello my friends. Well, this week has been a bit of a blue one for me, for one reason or another. Yet, today I feel ‘bright’ enough to channel and happy to do so.

With warmest of greetings … we welcome you and all who are drawn to our words. There are times for Each One when the spirit is low … yet, as you are aware … when the spirit bounces back … as it almost certainly will … there is a freshness in the steps … which One would not encounter, should they not have experienced the lesser energetic times.

Yes. I am aware of that … and always happy to be FEELING more in alignment with myself, that’s for sure. So, today’s topic will be?

Anything you would like it to be … within reason.

And that reason being?

The fact that there are certain topics that we do not care to discuss. For we FEEL it our desire to only uplift …

Rather than confuse …

We are indeed in sync with one another.

Ok … seeing as you offered … I have been thinking a lot lately about our Planet … about other Planets … in fact, about ‘The Whole Thing’. You say, that we were created as an experiment … who actually ‘devised’ us? How did it come about that these bodies of ours work as they do … and … how does the soul then enter into these bodies? Go for gold.

We are expecting you to hear our answer.

Do you mean you would like to speak? That now familiar feeling of dropping of my perch has come upon me.

If this … and ONLY if this is appropriate for you.

I’ll certainly give it a go … It’s not raining … which is amazing since we are on the tail end of a passing cyclone! Ok let’s see shall we?

Transcript below.

Well. Thank you. Interesting how your chat turned out to be about something I REALLY needed to hear … and I am sure it will assist many.

This is our desire.  We continue to be in such Joy regarding this new way. It was always our next step.

Which I must have known about … but didn’t … until I did! Happy to do so, although still getting used to it. Anything more you would like to say?

Only that we Love you. Yet, this you know. This you can FEEL.

This I DO know.This I DO FEEL. Thank you.

The Body


Transcript. Feb 21st.

Welcome Dearest Ones.

Once again we are delighted beyond delight to have this opportunity to speak through sound … so that your hearts may resonate with the Vibration in which these words are offered.

Questions … Questions … Questions. So much that the human mind desires to know, and is One not told over and over … that all answers lie within?

Many understand … many accept of this reply … and yet, they do not necessarily know fully … of the answer … to the answer.

Where within do those answers lie? Is it at your fingertips?  Is it on the tip of your tongue? Is it within your heart space?

Remove physicality from thought … and then … remove thought. In this vast expanse … of nothingness … here then, is where all answers reside. Ready for you to pick at your will … as an apple from a tree.

All answers can be known by you … when the soul is ready to rediscover them.

You have asked of us this day … regarding the creation of the physical body. We smile … for in a similar fashion … is it not that scientists and indeed, professors … build in your world … out of many types of materials … what you name a robot? And its functioning … functions … by a certain programme.

Therefore, when a particular button is pressed … the arm knows to move to the right … and on and on … We could continue explaining … yet, we understand that you understand of that which we speak.

It was therefore, greatly assessed … how a physical momentum could be accessed via thought … so that … if you like… your thought … the thought coming from the FEELING of the human, is therefore, the programme, the button that is pressed , should one’s arm desire to move to the right. It is very similar and yet as you know … far more complex … due to the billions of workings within.

The Power House that is your physical body is a Miracle within itself. It is a living organism that is a world within itself. For when something breaks down … much takes place in order to have that particular place up and working again … as soon as possible.

Much is understood by your physicians and researchers about the body. Yet, we would also add the thought … that the basic maintenance for the body … is through the FEELING of Well-Being.

When One does not FEEL so Bright in thought and physical movement … of physical FEELING within … it is far harder for … shall we say … the Beings within your body … (You would perhaps call them the mechanisms) … yet, we would call them ‘The Beings’ within your body … are not fully functioning on Love.

All things within your body function 100% when they are in Love with one another … And indeed, the soul … that is the computer programme … if you like … of that physical body.

Therefore … when there is FEELINGS of Joy and Happiness … FEELINGS of Oneness … the body reacts.

This is the body’s finest medicine. And we understand … we accept … how hard it must be … when your physical body is not functioning as it should … that One is able to remain in Joy …  in Happiness … in full Energy.

Yet, through the power of the mind … the power of the soul controlling the minds pattern … this then, is how Well-Being is brought about.

Even when scanners upon your Earth are saying otherwise. You may see of a scan of something that is taking place within your body … which is proof to you why you are receiving a certain ailment or a certain pain. Yet, your thought pattern … your FEELING of Well-Being … can control the visions you see upon those X-rays.

Your FEELINGS can be used as an eraser … to literally, rub out the images that were once there.

We do not enter upon this subject in a fashion of ‘It is as simple as that’ … and yet … it is.

When we explain to you that it is your FEELING … through thought … that animates your entire physical Being … that is its programme … Then do you see Dearest souls? By accepting and adopting this attitude …  knowing it as your Truth … then all one needs do is FEEL that which they desire to FEEL … to be well.

Blossom is speaking to us and she is saying that indeed, as we mentioned when One is ‘sick’ … and yet, we do not agree with this word ‘sick’ … but, we will continue forth. When One has great struggle within the physical body … the last thing that is on their mind is being able to FEEL well. They know they want to FEEL well, but are unable to do so … because they are not.

We say … that to overcome FEELINGS of negativity … need not be the struggle in which many make it.

Go to the playground inside your head. Take yourself away from that which you assume to be your reality … and go and play … with children in the fields of Golden corn. Take yourself to places that you dream of visiting. You do not require your physical Being … to do so.

You do not require your physical Being to be with you … to tag along.

All that you are … is Love

It is the essence of your soulself.

This soulself of yours … as an individual aspect of The Whole …  has the right to visit anywhere it so chooses … with or without the body … and if it is that the body be a hindrance … then leave it behind.

When you return from your visit … you will find that your FEELINGS are in a much stronger disposition. Therefore, this can be applied  to allowing the FEELING of the body to uplift itself … little by little.

You programme your body. It is not programmed by another, by pushing buttons … and turning levers.

This Miracle that you have chosen to reside in upon the Earth plane is the most proficient multi, bulti,(?) billion, trillion dollar residence that you could come across.

And yet, is it not so … that many choose to let the house keeping slip? It does not matter they say ‘if I leave that room full of dust or if there is a leak in that room … I’ll see to it later.’ We suggest that One should always keep their house in order … so that it may function to its Highest ability.

You may look at another who may run many miles in a race … or climb the Highest mountain … and you may think ‘I would never be able to accomplish that’ … and you will not … because that is what you think.

When you fully understand the power of your FEELINGS and your thought patterns … you would carefully choose that which you FEEL and that which you think … instead of allowing thoughts and FEELINGS to run in gay abandon … therefore, causing much mayhem along your pathway.


To serve you … in so many ways. Oh! How your body serves you … and yet, it is taken for granted day after day.

Breath after breath.

We say to you Dearest friends, the more you choose to acknowledge the wonder that your body is … the more you will discover the greatness of what it is.

The more you treat your body as you would a friend … the more your body reciprocates back to you … the LOVE that you offer to it.

That circle of Energy that is ONE.


Therefore, make the most of why you chose it.

Do all you can with it …

Laugh with it … Move with it …

For the Energy that is YOU … for your time upon Earth … is shared by your physical expression.

You are married … if you like … to One another.

What vows ? What promises are you now prepared to make to that partner that is with you … for your time … your entire time …. upon Planet Earth?

Is it not best to have an outstanding relationship? To Love and to cherish … so long as we both shall live?

Dearest friends … we Thank You for listening to that which we choose to impart this day … and we Trust that we have assisted your growth … assisted your understanding regarding the bond you have with your physical house … your physical partner.

We now retract our Energy in this fashion from our Dear friend Blossom. In Love and thanks to all.




Nothing matters

…if There is no truth...then Nothing Matters!

Blossom Goodchild and The Federation of Light – October 12, 2014


Hello dear friends. Well, last week’s channelling certainly caused a stir! I have tried to get my head around the ‘Nothing matters’ issue. Yet, I have to be honest … I don’t quite ‘Get it.’ I have received varied emails … some ‘Get it’ completely and have felt they knew this all along. Whereas, others, like myself, simply cannot grasp it fully. Can we continue on with this theme? Many of us need clarification. Thank you.

Dearest Blossom and all who take part in these conversations … We join you in LOVE … for we CHOOSE to assist you in your Awakening. Each corner of your heart is being activated with each new concept we put forth. As you digest and rearrange thoughts, you allow that which you KNOW to be YOUR TRUTH to emerge.

We are aware that the opportunity to stretch the imagination may have caused conflict within the self. You ask HOW ‘nothing matters’ … when all around you are moments that definitely seem to matter! Yet … in the Grander picture … in the big scheme of things … they do not.

Why don’t they? It matters to us down on Earth how things are going and how people are acting out their play?


Because, we want to live in a world full of Love and Light … and right now there is a lot about it … that simply isn’t!

That is what you desire … correct?

Yes … So it matters to me.

IT matters to you …. Because you are assessing things from your view point.

Correct. So my view point matters to me. My view point is SOMETHING that matters TO ME. It is not ‘Nothing’ that matters to me.

Take a deep breath.

This entire source of Life … that which comes from the Highest … is LOVE.


This LOVE has CHOSEN to express itself THROUGH ALL THINGS … IN ALL WAYS … in order to KNOW itself.

It cannot KNOW itself in fullness … until every single possibility has played itself out … THROUGH LOVE.



Therefore, it matters not WHAT is played out … it has to be played out … in order for LOVE to be complete.

‘Does it matter’ … whether or not LOVE is complete?

It is not a question of it mattering … for it simply IS this way.

A few wrote in, simply not being able to understand that it does not matter about war, and how one treats another. I mean, how can the way one treats another … how can the fact that so many suffer through the hands of another’s choices … not matter?

Because … it is part of The Game.

It’s not a very pleasant one then!

Is it not? Are not your choices Blossom … THROUGH LOVE … allowing you to experience a pleasant side of ‘The Game’?

Yes … yet, I am not talking about me … I am talking about those who choose to destroy … and those who supposedly ‘choose’ to be the victims. The way one behaves towards another … how can this NOT MATTER?

Let us try and put this into a perspective in which you can see Light at the end of the tunnel.

I’m looking!  I’m looking!

As we spoke of …

All things came from LOVE …

All things are of LOVE …

All things shall return to the HIGHEST LOVE from which they derived.


That which is acted out … and upon … through thought … is simply an expression of self-awareness for each individual. They are in a game … whilst in the dimension of Earth reality.

Let’s talk about ‘The Game’ then. I have heard this mentioned many times … That we are in a game.

Perhaps express it differently?  You are in a game … yet, you are also PLAYING The Game. YOU make the moves … YOU move up the board.

When you play a game … perhaps of chess … a move that one may make … with a strategy in mind … depicts how one continues on for the rest of that game. If one plays a move that does not serve … IT DOES NOT MATTER … it simply means that one has to ‘find their way out of it’ in order to complete The Game.

The moves you make determine whether you win or lose …THAT particular game …



Yet, are we not all trying to return to THE HIGHEST PUREST LOVE THAT WE ARE? Doesn’t it matter that we FEEL we are doing the right thing to ‘get home’?

No. It doesn’t matter.

Yet, it does matter … TO ME. It matters to me how I behave and how I choose to ‘get there’. If nothing matters … why are you choosing to assist us with your messages? I mean … if nothing matters … why bother? I’m not having a go at you here … I’m just trying to ‘Get It’. You ‘Get that’ right?


Here is a key note …


Do you see the difference? That which you CHOOSE to do … makes all the difference as to how you FEEL and yet …


Yet, for each individual … being part of The Whole … the choices One makes can allow One to FEEL wonderful or to FEEL miserable … A choice. Yet, either choice …. DOESN’T MATTER … because whatever way one CHOOSES to FEEL … is part of the experience of LOVE /LIFE.

I have to persevere here … if I may?

By all means.

These choices we make … how can you say, for instance … that one soul killing another … or torturing another … doesn’t matter?

Because it is part of The Game. A game that you all agreed to take part in.

It has been said that this game is all an illusion … and not reality at all. I can’t get my head around that either, just quietly!

Because you are IN The Game. When you are out of The Game … you ‘see it’ for what it TRULY is.



Anyone got a parachute? … I’m outta here! … Then why does it FEEL so real?

Because it is a GAME OF EXPERIENCE.

How could it be played, if it did not FEEL real? How could you experience, if it did not FEEL real?

So, are my FEELINGS real?

To you at this time … in this illusion. Let us speak more of this.

Please, be my guest!

 Look up the word ‘Illusion’ if you would.

‘An illusion is a distortion of the senses, revealing how the brain normally organizes and interprets sensory stimulation. Though illusions distort reality, they are generally shared by most people.’


So, are you saying that although it FEELS real to us … … Because it is an illusion … our FEELINGS are distorted from our TRUE reality … whatever that may be … if there is no one Truth!!! Anyone got a spade so I can dig myself in deeper … or indeed out?

Yes we are! You say that it is different for us, in the realms we reside … and we do not understand how it is to be living in your dimension. In many ways, this is correct. Our FEELINGS are real … for we are not in The Game.

Your FEELONGS are as REAL as you are able to perceive them … within this ‘illusional reality.

So … do you go by ‘nothing matters’ in YOUR reality?


LOVE matters … TO ME … LOVE matters.


That matters!

How can we help you to ‘Get it’?

Keep trying! I just don’t ‘Get it’… that LOVE doesn’t matter.

Yet, EVERYTHING … as we said … IS LOVE … How IT chooses to act out … in all ITS different scenarios, does not take away the fact that it is STILL LOVE.

Yet … if nothing matters … one could say … I can do anything I like …  kill … maim … rape … and it simply doesn’t matter … IT DOES!

To YOU in YOUR reality.

Does it not matter to YOU that people do this then?

Not when you can see the WHOLE PICTURE … which you are unable to do!


Yes, I get that bit …

Therefore … in ALL its forms … it is BEING ITSELF.

EVERYTHING IS LOVE … and it MATTERS NOT how it chooses to appear … because IT IS ALL LOVE.

Now then … here’s the clincher … Doesn’t LOVE matter then?


That is the only answer we can offer you to that question.

Well, I don’t know if we have actually progressed here … I’ll absorb today’s information and see where it leads me. Mind you … it doesn’t really matter!!

Thanks Guys for ‘trying’ …. I’ll get there. Some already have … I never was at the top of the class!

That doesn’t matter.

Further down the rabbit hole we go! In Love and thanks. Until next time …

Always, we are in Love with you.

Later that day, I found myself in a particularly bad mood … A rarity for me … and I didn’t like it! Not really succeeding in trying to calm my thoughts, I said in my head ‘Being in this bad mood DOES MATTER … TO ME’ … and the immediate reply/thought was,  ‘Because you are CHOOSING to let it matter!’.
The penny dropped for me! Well , maybe a halfpenny! So I said … ‘I CHOOSE to not let this matter’ … and all I can say is … that a wave of Love came over me … and I ‘Got it’. Well, that bit!
I realized that by CHOOSING to let go and really accepting it ‘didn’t matter’ that I was in a bad mood … I got out of the way … and … how do I put this?… It allowed for LOVE to take over. That’s the only way I can describe it. So, I then applied that, to thinking about war and hunger etc … said the same thing to myself … ‘I CHOOSE not to let it matter’ … and had the SAME FEELING of LOVE … TAKING OVER … this time, on a global scale. In that moment … I GOT IT. Not sure I still have it … yet, thought I’d share, in the TRUSTING it may assist those who are on the same page as me … to GET IT.




There is no truth

Blossom Goodchild and The Federation of Light – October 5, 2014


Good morning. Trusting today will bring about another wonderful message from you.

Good morning to you all also. We sincerely accept your TRUSTING and as always do our upmost to bring forth wisdom to assist … be it in small quantities or large.

May we continue on from last week? We were talking about the word ‘God’.

We Truthfully FEEL that this word has been taken from its original context and yet, each individual soul must find their own TRUTH regarding it. The fact is … it is not about ‘words’ … it is about FEELING.

As we have expressed over and over … GOD IS LOVE.

Interesting though, how different religions FEEL differently about how GOD operates!  Someone wrote in recently to ask me what I will do , when I pass over … arrive at ‘them pearly gates’ … and GOD refuses me, because I have been speaking with you … and you are not TRUTH … Like … ???? Hello …???!!! How do souls not see that ‘GOD’ is a FEELING of LOVE … all ‘we’ are doing here, is spreading the good news of LOVE. How can people possibly think that GOD would be displeased with us? Nothing within ‘your’ teachings fills me with fear … yet, those who study certain large books are telling me I am bad! They don’t seem to understand that GOD does not judge … can we speak about this kind of thing?

We would sincerely state that each soul walking their path has the FREEDOM OF CHOICE to think how they CHOOSE to think … about anything.  From our knowledge … there is no judgement, no condemnation … for how can LOVE be this way?

Yet, LOVE is in all things … You say Everything is LOVE, just on different vibrations of itself .Yet … here, we are speaking of the HIGHEST purest vibrational LOVE. I KNOW that there is no judgment, only compassion and understanding.

LOVE gave you this freedom. … To discover yourselves for yourselves. We too find it ‘odd’ that those who say they KNOW God … consider the possibility of this ‘invention’ of hell.

You think what you create. If for you, you think you deserve to go to hell … then your mind pattern can create that scenario for you. If you KNOW there is no hell … how can you go there?

Yet, I have also seen a documentary about a child who had the most wonderful experience with the man called Jesus. She came back from ‘the dead’, so to speak, to warn people what will happen if you do not KNOW God. She was shown heaven and hell. She was only 12. Her story seemed authentic (to her ) and what she experienced was way beyond her years. She was cleary shown hell. I don’t believe in hell … so was she just experiencing ‘her truth’ with Jesus?

A long pause …

The reason for the delay in reply … is trying to find words that will help you to understand.

This BEING that you are … this aspect of your soul down here on Earth, has the opportunity to discover their Truth. What may appear to suit one … does not always suit another.

The plain fact is … is that …



In that … TRUTH is different for each individual … and THAT TRUTH depicts how they CHOOSE to travel on their journey.

I know we talked long ago about TRUTH changing, and I got confused, thinking there had to be the ONE ULTIMATE TRUTH.

Yet, there is not.

Well, wouldn’t you say that LOVE IS THE ULTIMATE TRUTH?

It would depend on what vibration it is playing itself out on.

So carry on explaining if you will …

TRUTH can be interpreted into a FEELING for each One. If one’s TRUTH is different from another … does that make one wrong and one right?

Well … if one is living in harmony and sending LOVE and trying to be the best they can, and another is blowing up a shopping mall full of people … I would imagine the majority would say the one giving LOVE was right … how could blowing up people be right?

In YOUR eyes. In YOUR TRUTH. Those that blow up a shopping centre, do so, because in ‘their eyes’ this is what they believe to be the right thing to do. It is, therefore … THEIR TRUTH … at the time.

You see … LOVE cannot lie … so all things are TRUTH.

Whoa! … This is doing my head in. People lie  … People are from LOVE.

Yet, within that lie that is told, they are living their TRUTH! They are choosing to tell lies … because for them at that time … they are living their Truth.

I sort of get what you are saying … sort of … yet, maybe not!

Again … again … again … you are experiencing your thoughts and understanding … from within a confined space. You are unable to understand that which we are saying from the HIGHEST BIGGER PICTURE.

How would you feel about us saying ‘Nothing matters?’


Yet … in ALL OUR TRUTH … it doesn’t!

FAR OUT! Surely EVERYTHING matters! … How we behave … How we treat another … How can you say THIS doesn’t matter?

Because … as we told you when we first linked up with you … you are an experiment.

Many take umbrage to this. Yet I get that. In MY TRUTH, NOW!

This experiment was devised to see how an individual could conduct itself through LOVE. At the beginning of the creation of YOU, each One … those that created … did not know how this would ‘act out’ … Yet, there was to be no interference … no sudden aborting of the experiment should it go wrong.


How Earth and all its inhabitants ‘turns out’ TO BE … is how it turns out to be. Through your choices.

This may sound cold and callous … yet, it is important that you KNOW that the most important part of this experiment … this experience … is for each one to find themselves. To discover WHO THEY ARE … and …

Who they are is LOVE.

Who they are is GOD. The seed of LOVE from which you were created. That very important ingredient … is there for you to discover … to discover GOD within you.

For the KNOWING that whatever takes place on the planet … in One’s life span … over many lives … To have that KNOWING that YOU ARE GOD … is all that is necessary to KNOW … in order to find the TRUTH.

Yet … you said there is no TRUTH!

There isn’t!

Then, what in heaven’s name … to put it politely!! You are making this quite tricky to follow, my friends. Surely GOD /LOVE IS TRUTH.

Yet … there are many versions and understandings and representations of GOD/LOVE … which one is TRUTH for YOU?

One who studies the bible and says you are at fault for not doing so? … This is ‘Their TRUTH’ …

One who studies another religion … and takes away the lives of many in the understanding of THEIR TRUTH? … This is TRUTH for them.

Yet, they all KNOW for themselves that this is how ‘they’ choose to think and behave in the name of GOD/LOVE.

Yet, in the case of one believing God wants to get rid of a certain race … or that a certain religion MUST take over the world … is that GOD /LOVE?

In ‘Their’ TRUTH … Yes, it is.

What does GOD/LOVE have to say about that?

Nothing. For GOD/LOVE is an expression of ALL THAT IS.

Yet, I just cannot grasp how … for someone to do this, that it can be an ACCEPTABLE TRUTH.

For you! Earlier, you spoke of someone expressing the fact that God would not be pleased with you for spreading these messages, when they are not coming from God … You felt they judged you … and God wouldn’t judge. Yet, is this not exactly what you are doing here regarding another’s choices of GOD?

Yes, I suppose it is … although I don’t feel I judge … I just accept that I don’t understand where they are coming from … I do not FEEL that ‘GOD/LOVE will send them to a place called hell … and as you have spoken before … not one soul ‘gets away’ with an action of hate towards another … For what is given out … comes back and can be felt a thousand fold … working both ways of course in goodness and that which is of a lower giving. Can we get back to ‘nothing matters’ this intrigues me.

In the beginning there was NOTHING.


Here is the biggest question of ALL then … Gulp … so how did LOVE start?

Because … It happened.

Who created it?

Itself … from nothing. We appreciate how difficult this is … both to put across … and to accept. Yet, we shall continue …

This Entirety … this Absolutely EVERYTHING … derived from nothing.

It is LOVE …

Which happened …

Which will always happen …

Will there ever be nothing again?

No. It is infinite from the moment of its creation …

From nothing!

Therefore, it shall always continue to create …

Yet, surely it matters ‘what’ we create?

Only to the individual.

Not to The Whole?

That individual is part of The Whole.

My point exactly! So, how one behaves affects The Whole …

Indeed … Yet, it is ‘part’ of the journey OF ALL.



And in doing so … this creates the next moment of THAT WHICH IS.

It doesn’t matter what that next moment is … it doesn’t matter! It is simply life … experiencing life.

This is so confusing … because … are we not supposed to moving into a Higher Dimension Through/As/ In / Of Love? So surely our behaviour matters? … Because we cannot do that … when many are choosing hatred and war and greed!

You are putting ‘time’ into this frame of experience. We do not.

LOVE does not.


Everything you come from is Love … of the Highest Purest Vibration … You shall all find your way home. May we suggest to liken it with a little homing devise … planted within you?

You shall ALL find your way home … and setting aside ‘time’ from the equation … you are free to ‘play’ in whichever way you CHOOSE before returning there.

There is so much to think about and absorb here … I feel we should leave it for now as the hour is up. I’ll have a ponder and we’ll take it from here next week …

In OUR Truth … this is most welcome.

Funny that … it is in mine also. Thanks so much for this … it lead somewhere quite mind blowing.

As always … In LOVE and Thanks to you for your ‘time’.

As always … In LOVE and Thanks to you … for this BEING together NOW.

* The Federation Of Light speak of LOVE.

Tom Lescher: Get out of the old paradigm – Astrology Forecast for July 23, 2014

“When I show my truth,
Without giving a reason,
I get in touch with the part of my heart,
That’s not bound by time, space, or season.”
