The newspapers and magazines have nicknamed them "Generation X." The
television commentators have called them "hard to read, even harder
to understand." These are the offspring of that incredible genetic
explosion of angst and wonder, the Baby Boomers. These are also the
ones who will carry us through the end of time and space.
It has been predicted (by several) that, on or near December 22,
2012, all time (as we know it) will stop. The Mayan Calendar will be
complete, and something brand new will begin. Some like to believe
that it will be eternity. In these next 15 years, our people and our
planet will be making preparations for our Graduation Day. Of
*everyone* has been invited. By then, everyone will surely be here.
There are no new souls being born into this universe. However, old
souls are coming in thundering hordes. Spirit speaks these ideas to
us, of course, in a linear sense. In a Multiversal sense, we've
always been here and we always will be. But in a past-present-future
kind of way.......every one of us is involved in a sort of "historic
Since about 1973, there are no children anymore. There are only
"little people." They are old, old souls who pretend they are young,
impressionable babes. In one moment, a child may seem utterly weak
and dependent, and in the next moment, he will inform his startled
parents exactly what he did and where he (and they!) lived in a last
Often, he'll do it off-handedly, without blinking, and then scurry
off to watch television.
Ask a "Star Child" what she wants to be when she grows up. Her
"I dunno." A close second to that might be "It doesn't matter." Of
course, they all learn quickly to verbalize something to satisfy
parents, grandparents, and teachers--but if she does decide to tell
the truth, there really is no "attitude" shown in her answer. That's
probably what might bother her parents the most. A Star Child is too
much *in the moment* to think about tomorrow. In the 60s, kids lived
that way to rebel. In the 90s, they live that way because it is all
they know how to do.
ORDER IN THE CHAOS
Star Children grow up doing their math homework
while watching TV and listening to a walkman at the same time. The
phone rings and a free hand is instantly peeling off one side of the
headphones to add yet another bit of input to a busy brain. Can a
student survive operating this way? Not only can he survive, he
*thrives* on it!
The brain of a Star Child is a multi-track device. Each level spins
at its own velocity and has it's own "pinpoint of attention" that
works like a needle on a phonograph. Their conversations, especially
in casual groups, often go every which way at once. Their greatest
joy is random personal expansion, and their biggest nemesis is
Nothing dulls the mind of a Star Child like being held in stasis
completing an outwardly concocted task.
The two hemispheres of the old brain are plugged into many polarity
configurations. Among them, is the dichotomy called "order and
In the brain of a Star Child, the wiring for both of these states is
found on the same side. Opposing it, where many of us would expect
to find an adherence to order or structure, the brain runs on a
temporary pattern focused upon compliance.
When the tourniquet is released, and they eventually let go of that
compliance, the "other side of the brain" will become a unified
OneMind. Polarity will be optional, and these youngsters will
frequently skip from universe to universe, down the Fourth
Dimensional Corridor, using the Multiverse like many of us now use
the Yellow Pages.
A GENERATION UNDER RESTRAINT
truth, the entire nervous system of our next generation is being
held in check during this time. They have been trained, cajoled,
threatened, blind-sided, and sometimes drugged to keep from
intimidating their parents too much during these crucial stages of
Those personality-types that have been called "A.D.D." (attention
deficit disorder) are simply aberrations of what is to come. They
are children who try to track their minds with their bodies, giving
form to every impulse. Their "disorders" are not bio-chemical, they
The "symptoms" of A.D.D. kids are symbolic reactions to the energy
configuration of their parents, social order, and/or primary
caretakers. To focus only upon the youngster is to lose the bigger
picture. A parent (or a society) who has a child that acts on
everything that comes into his mind is a person or group who is *not
acting* on many key things that screams within *their* collective
mind. THAT, in fact, is the true attention deficit. To medicate the
child is to simply buy time for the rest of us to catch up. So be
As we have said, the Star Children are *all* medicated in one way or
another during this transition time. They'd have to be, in order to
keep from tearing the place apart. Of course, this is also by Grand
Design. If they spend themselves on de-structuring the current
landscape, they will have no strength left to lead us into the next
level of our collective existence.
powerful cultural focus for young people at this time is Rap and
Hip-Hop music. Underlying each collage of musical background styles,
random prose, and emotional intensity there is a deeper theme that
deserves our examination. It is the high esteem that is placed upon
the local "clan" or "tribe," referred to by most Rappers as their
Star Children do not hold much stock in
Their generation is the fulcrum upon which an entire species is
going to rotate, so they cannot afford to be made of materials that
are too dense or unwieldy. Their social structure begins from the
Membership in a social circle (including a family) should not be
left to circumstance. It needs to be built upon a foundation of
collective desire and consent.
Each "gansta" has an inner-circle, and each member of that circle
forms another circle, and so on. It is government by the locals, and
distant politics and social manipulations only make sense if they
connect to what is happening inside the immediate circle. It isn't
isolationism, really. It's simply called FOCUS.
The ancient edict of Pagan Society was found in this simple law: "Do
what you will, harm none." Gangstas of today cannot yet adhere
completely to this law, because the society in which they live is
still very hostile and invested in property, principle, and
Indeed, their whole concept of themselves is incomplete, though it
contains many helpful clues about what is to come.
Before the indigenous social systems can begin to be re-installed,
some great "levelers" are going to have to occur in our collective
lives. Economic crises, natural disasters, plagues and food
shortages have, throughout history, been excellent "equalizers" for
societies that once operated on hierarchical systems. It seems that,
in a pinch, we all gather together and form networks of mutual
The "levelers" (or is that Levelours?) of today do not have to be
explosions, holocaust, or famine. Our Pre-Millennial World has
something much more powerful upon us than those feeble elements. We
have Global Transmutation. The Veil of Forgetfulness which has
surrounded humanity for all these many centuries is lifting at an
alarming rate. Our past and our futures now converge upon us,
demanding to be mixed in the Global Caudron. We are RE-MEMBERING..and
we are becoming terrified!
For the Star Children, the future will not be about survival of the
fittest. Rather, it will be about survival of the *hippest.* They
will not be focused upon whether or not might makes right. For
themselves, they will find that they simply just "gotta do what they
gotta do." When hardship and disruption begins to happen, it will
eventually be these children who will begin to form a "default"
matrix for a new society, right under our very noses.
FROM THE "HIP"
Being hip is not just about knowledge, information, social
philosophy, or even creativity. Neither is it concerned with fads,
fancies, or acceptance by some crowd. Our historical experience of
the term might indicate otherwise. We have had counter-cultures,
reverse-status, and beatnick-ism galore. We have had "hippies," "dippies,"
till some of us can barely tolerate the words! All of these systems
seem to be merely *reactionary* in nature. Being truly hip is not
If someone has a reputation for "telling it like it is," he is often
said to shoot "from the hip." For a cowboy, such an action would
indicate impulsiveness, and perhaps a lack of self-control. For a
martial artist, it could indicate total readiness at all times,
acting instinctively without need for aim or preparation.
For a Star Child who is totally connected and operational, being
is about living within a kind of FLOW. It is an alignment that
happens between nature, circumstance, and one's deep inner self.
When we live "from the hip," we are functioning at all times from
this balance of spontaneity and Oneness with All That Is.
When they are approached by some stressor, eliciting a response, the
nervous system of a Star Child (who has been trained by their
parents to always initially restrain itself) will measure the
current situation against what would have been his *original flow*
had the interaction never taken place. In that way, he or she has
the option to *choose* whether to even respond at all. It is a form
of Relationship Aikido, and it can work marvelously to avoid
spillage of energy on insignificant enterprises.
Who cares whether the person who is dogging him has a right to talk
to him that way? Who cares what emotional ploys and manipulations
are being enlisted to shape and influence their choices and their
We don't gain mastery of a situation by knowing the opposition.
Rather, we gain mastery of life by knowing and trusting *ourselves.*
Psychologist Fritz Perls used to use the expression "compliance is
defiance." He felt that those in therapy who always simply went
along with the wishes of the therapist were holding deep-seated
anger and had many conflicts to work out. Though this may have been
very true of the people of his day, it will probably have lesser
meaning when we enter the Age of the Star Children.
Compliance can be a wonderful way for people to side-step the
insignificance of life and get right to the things that matter most.
The Star Children will "go along to get along," because a hip person
has nothing to prove and really has better things to do with his or
could go on forever, speaking about the innate genius that has been
downloaded into the generation that will take the helm when we
baby-boomers take to the cane and the shuffle. The oldsters were
trained to be "Watchers," and we surely will have plenty to watch!
When we pass from the physical plane, many of us will partially
inhabit or merge with the consciousness of our children. We will do
this along with all those ancestors who have come before us. What
was once a library of consciousness that could fill a city mile, has
become condensed into what looks like a microchip. The Baby Boomers
have worked (and will continue to be working) hard to abbreviate and
condense all knowledge and concern into its most basic elements. The
Star Children will take those elements and brew some powerful
Many of the people of the Earth are dealing with depression on a
daily basis. We mutter to ourselves "I'm sooooooo tired.." as we go
about our daily tasks, hoping for something.. ANYTHING.. to break
the monotony and leap us into what we *know* will be an incredible
Are any of you Star Children out there? Consider what you're feeling
and experiencing during this time in history. If you feel heavy and
constrained, don't worry. It's simply a collective decision of
deference, allowing the rest of us to leap with you when the time is
right for everyone.
There is *nothing* wrong with you that your complete REMEMBERING
will not fix. Just hold off on the judgments, ok? Don't judge us and
please don't judge yourself. Rather, be HIP. Flow from your
wholeness rather than reacting to our fragmentation, fear, and
residual separation. Your time is coming as fast as it dares. Any
faster and we'd all end up like Atlantis. Remember that, because you
were all probably *there!*
Do any of you parents have Star Children living under your roof?
They are not here to be controlled, you know. Do so if you must, but
their gift to you could be so much more. They are here to teach you
what it looks like to *not be* controlled---to move from a place of
desire rather than responsibility. The two motives are not always
mutually exclusive, despite what some clergymen have tried to tell
The Baby Boomers are a generation of "Watchers," so why don't we do
just that? WATCH them, rather than trying to TEACH them. We'll all
probably learn a whole lot more.
