The Beginning of the End of an Era
As our children grew, we could no longer have three or four sharing one bedroom as we did when they were smaller, and as well, the older children were being harassed in the neighborhood. So, we began to move in smaller groups to another part of Stockton. It was an interesting transition – living in the world of separate houses. For several years, we continued to maintain our communal structure and alternated dinners at the different houses during the week. We experienced the truth of the old saying, “It goes with the territory,” as we were brought face-to-face with the secular programming that goes along with that lifestyle of separate households, where people are caught up in the day-to-day status quo business-as-usual cares of the world and its inherent fear of survival. We no longer had communal cash flow projects that our maturing youth could participate in, which is one of the reasons that many communal members began to spread out and integrate back into the community’s economic and social structure. Little by little, different members of the Family went off separately and in small family groups to experience life once again in the buying and selling world.
Because of resentment and feeling alienated, after graduating from high school our son, Michael, chose to leave the communal group and “make it” in the status quo world of effects. Since then, he has had many of the same unfulfilling experiences and problems relative to money and relationships that the majority of people experience in that world. However, with his beautiful high spirit, he has made great strides in overcoming old conditioning. Now, even people with relatively happy childhoods and those who have become “successes” in the status quo world are beginning to realize that there is something very wrong with the way we, as a humanity, live on this planet and that there is a great need for a total social change.
The Nation’s Capitol
In November of 1982, our publishing facet, Starmast Publications, published the fourth of the Everlasting Gospel series, “GOD-Ultimate Unlimited Mind-SPEAKS”. Allen Michael felt that the place to be to reach the most people with our latest publication was the Nation’s Capitol. At that time, Thera was in New York attending a UN meeting, and from there she went to Washington where she found a large furnished house that was to be available for rent two months from that time. This was the publication date of the fourth Everlasting Gospel and the exact time we had planned to be in D.C. Once again, synchronicity!
Michael and I went to Washington to prepare the house ahead of the others who were to follow with Allen Michael. I had the same feeling of exhilaration when we arrived there as I did when I was eighteen and first arrived in San Francisco, the home of the catalyzing energies of the Flower Children.
The Nation’s Capitol is a beautiful, dynamic city, no doubt a result of the high energies recorded there by the vision of the Founding Fathers of a government of, by and for the people. Theirs was the vision of the new world – the world of life, liberty and the pursuits of happiness for all people, born equal, with free cash flow money as guaranteed in Article I, Section 8, Paragraph 5, “Congress shall have the power to coin [and print] the money and regulate the value thereof.” This is the key plank of the U.S. Constitution, which was to bring freedom from the Old World Bankers and absolute freedom, security and abundance, equally for all. But we can see how that old satanic energy took over entities who brought in private banks and usury money, so that the cornerstone as shown on the one dollar bill wasn’t laid for the New World at that time.
Allen Michael, Michael B., David, Joseph, Jeff and Amra joined us in our big house, a block from Connecticut Avenue near the D.C. Zoo. Very shortly, we became acquainted with the more enlightened people of the community who, we were pleasantly surprised to find, were more receptive to our lifestyle than any other community we had been in previously. The media, however, was more establishment-controlled than we had anticipated and in spite of our many interviews and on-going promotions, we received little press or TV coverage. This, of course shouldn’t be so surprising since the Nation’s Capitol is the “heart of the beast,” the headquarters of the money changers, and we were hitting a little close to home. All things being relative, it was a good experience and more seeds sown. Washington is a beautiful city of high energy, and there was a feeling that reminded me of the Flower Children era in San Francisco, with people becoming aware of the changes that must be made in our society. The hills, the trees, the Potomac River, the historic houses and neighborhoods, the monuments and the large African American community, all add a richness and uniqueness to this special city, and of course, it is the world headquarters of the Luciferic powers-that-be.
The nation’s Capitol has been cited as one of the worst, relative to environmental and social problems. Just as in the other large cities, the negative effects of the system, with the people unable to build and maintain their environments the way they should be, are building to the point of no return. The money system keeps the people from being able to have their public services, roads, streets and buildings built and maintained on one high standard for all, and the homeless fill the streets in growing numbers. It’s the negative prod to progress as antithesis and thesis come up against one another, ultimately to come together into the synthesis – the new world of equality and sharing.
I was attracted to the African/American community, for their warmth and unity of spirit. As a result of the negative effects of the usury money system, they were uniting together to improve their own lives and the lives of their children in ways that are now beginning to happen in more of the middle class white communities. The big mistake many African Americans and other minority groups in this country make, is that they place the responsibility on the “white” race and on the Zionists for their plight as the underprivileged. It’s not only that those of all minority groups are at the bottom of the stack in the usury money getting-for-self world. It’s the money system that’s to blame for bringing about the cause for prejudice in the first place. The inequality and fear of lack are a direct result of the getting-for-self usury money system of haves and have not’s. When the planet’s abundance is shared equally by all as one family, there will be no fear of lack, or its effects, prejudice, greed and jealousy.
In spite of not getting the coverage in the major media we had expected, we sowed a lot of seeds with our books and literature and made many friends. One of them was Barbara Carpenter, who had founded the Network of Light. She had been inspired by the communal experience she had at Findhorn in Scotland and had brought together many harmonious spiritual new age groups to share together in recognizing the truth of One. We participated in the yearly Heart To Heart Festival and enjoyed many communication gatherings with the Network of Light, as we shared our vision of the New World.
After we’d been in D.C. about a year, we felt it was time for our small group to get back to California. My son, Rhys, came out and took over management of our house on Garfield Street, and for the next 14 years he managed it as a group house for university students. Allen Michael and the rest of the crew returned to Stockton, except for my husband, Michael, who chose to remain on the East Coast. I went on to our commune in Maui to spend a few months before returning to California.
