We can CHANGE OUR WORLD!!! by Gregg Bradden
- Dear Ones,
This is an article on ancient truths concerning the power of FEELING to manifest reality.To help distinguish between the two Cynthia's in our group, I am using my middle name with my first name, which is my favorite way of being addressed anyway.

Prophecy, Prayer & Choice
Gregg Braden Interviewed by Miriam Knight
Community Connexion - Portland, OR January/February 2000
Apocalypse now? Not necessarily ... According to a new interpretation of the prophecies of Isaiah in the Dead Sea Scrolls, it's actually up to you and me. Have the religious leaders and traditions of the last two millennia been missing something? Well, yes, particularly the Western traditions, which are still suffering from the conquest of logic over feeling that stemmed from 325 a.d. when tremendous amounts of information were removed from the open literature and relegated to mystery schools and elite priesthoods.
Western traditions began to forget the key principles laid down in the Isaiah Scroll, although they were preserved in some of the Eastern and Native American traditions. It has taken the intellectual tools of quantum science to bring us back to the point of understanding from which we departed 1700 years ago.
The concept of parallel universes was only postulated in 1957, and the scientific proof of the existence of parallel states of matter, in this case Beryllium, was only published in 1998. This provided the final piece of the puzzle for Gregg Braden, author, Scientist, lecturer and guide to sacred sites around the world, enabling him to make the conceptual bridge between the physics and the metaphysics of prophecy.
Gregg Braden is an intense individual who is totally impassioned by the need to share these insights. His first book, Awakening to Zero Point: The Collective Initiation, described the tremendous shifts that are occurring throughout all the levels of this planet - from viral mutations to geological cataclysms to shifts in human consciousness. It raised the question of what do we do on a personal level in the presence of theses kinds of changes?
Gregg's answer came in his second book, Walking Between the Worlds - The Science of Compassion. Using the teachings of the ancient Essenes, he shows us that compassion is a science accessible to all. Through it we can transcend the challenges that we are now facing individually and collectively.
This book was based on recently-translated texts from the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls. The 2000-year-old Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in 1946. A small team of 8 scholars controlled access to the scrolls, and only a small portion of the scrolls has been translated and released. There were 22,000 fragments and scrolls on papyrus, metal and hide, but only one was found intact - The Isaiah Scroll.
His third book, which will be released on March 28th, is entitled The Isaiah Effect: Decoding the Lost Science of Prayer and Prophecy. It is based on an interpretation of the Isaiah Scroll illuminated by new scientific knowledge. It follows on from his second book, and offers an answer to the suffering of the individual or the masses that we see through planetary changes, whether from natural upheavals, warfare or disease. It describes how we may collectively come together and address all these challenges through the science contained in the Isaiah Scroll.
THE ISAIAH SCROLL
The portion of the scroll that this book is based on relates to prophesy, specifically for our time in history, for the shift from the 2nd to the 3rd millennium. If anyone is uncomfortable with the concept of prophecy in our time, it is equally valid to use the worlds employed by academics and the military, namely remote viewing. The book is a somewhat radical deviation from the way the scholars have traditionally interpreted the scroll in the past.
Isaiah offers insights into our future which have parallels to prophecies from many other traditions, such as the Maya, Navajo, Hopi and Egyptian, all the way to Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce. All of their prophecies had cycles of bad and good times, but there was not necessarily agreement as to which came when.
"I chose to use the Isaiah Scroll because it is representative of what I believe all these prophecies are saying to us, and because it is one of the first. What we find is that more often than not the prophets are seeing tremendous amounts to catastrophic loss of life due to famine, disease, rogue weather and war, and then these are followed by times of peace and gentle weather patterns, cooperation between nations and governments."
Where The Isaiah Effect deviates from the traditional interpretations is that scholars have seen these as linear events; that is, they have seen us going through bad times before we get to the good times.
THE ISAIAH EFFECT
In 1957 a physicist at Princeton, Hugh Everett, III, suggested that for every moment of our lives there are many, many moments, possibilities and outcomes playing out simultaneously and present for every choice in our lives. They are all happening at the same time, though we are not necessarily aware of them. He called these parallel possibilities. Science fiction immediately adopted these ideas, and like so many others, it has not been proven to be a science fact.
In Braden's interpretation of the Isaiah Scroll, when we focus on one of those possibilities out of the many, this becomes our reality. What this implies is that for every moment of catastrophe the prophets see in our future, while they may well be possible consequences of the choices we are making in our lives right now, there are other outcomes just as possible.
Isaiah is very clear when he says that it is just as possible that we are about to enter a time of unprecedented cooperation between nations, and that war will not even be in our vocabulary. The mystery among the scholars has been how could these prophets speaking thousands of years ago see such different possibilities for the same moment in history?
"What I believe, and am calling the Isaiah Effect, is that the ancient prophets were actually adept masters at slipping between those parallel realities. And, they were giving insight to us in this generation as to what they saw as the possibilities in the only words that they had 2500 years ago. They took it one step further and gave us the science of how to determine which of those possibilities played out in our lives. Every time we make the choices that allow us to move into those new possibilities, we experience the Isaiah Effect."
DO WE CREATE OR CHOOSE OUR REALITY?
"This is where the boundaries between spiritual traditions, religions, quantum physics and philosophy become very fuzzy. One of the things we've been told by proponents of 'new thought' is that we create our reality. What quantum science now says, and what I believe the ancients were saying, is that that is close, but not completely accurate. Rather, for every moment in our lives we live a great many simultaneous possibilities that are all playing out in time. They are essentially dormant in our cosmos, sleeping until we awaken them through choices we make. All our individual choices then become our collective response to a given time in history."
Thus although we may now be witnessing the precursors to some of the most frightening prophecies, other outcomes are available and just as likely. How do we move from one possibility to the other? The clues are in the Isaiah Scroll.
FROM THE DEAD SEA TO TIBET
We lost sight of the relationship between mankind, thought, feeling and emotion and the cosmos when the sacred texts that we had relied upon for our understanding were made inaccessible in the 4th century. As a result, we became a very logic-based society, but the indigenous traditions had preserved those understandings. When the Essenes left the Qumran area to escape persecution, they carried with them copies of entire libraries. Some of them went to Bolivia and Peru, and there are today active Essene monasteries in southern Peru. The Hopi and Navajo traditions also confirm these texts, and others went to the monasteries in the highlands of Tibet for safekeeping for later generations.
In 1998 Braden took a pilgrimage to 12 of these Tibetan monasteries and two nunneries and was shown one of these libraries, and began to understand that the Tibetans not only house the libraries containing Christian and pre-Christian traditions, but they are also living these traditions today. They have incorporated these inner technologies into their daily routines.
"Among the many pieces of wisdom that were lost to the west and preserved for us by the Tibetans is a mode of prayer that is very different from the traditional prayers of the west. It is this mode of prayer that they showed us in their texts that I believe Isaiah was referring to in his scroll. This mode of prayer ties us back into the quantum principles and allows us to participate in choosing the outcome for our moment in history. This is a key in the seminar that I shall be giving in Portland. We will actually participate in this Lost Mode of Prayer and have the opportunity to apply it as a group in a phenomenon that is now called mass prayer."
PRAYER IS FEELING
How does this mass prayer differ from what we are familiar with? "The prayer that we are talking about transcends religion and science and mysticism. It is based on reincorporating human feeling into our relationship with the world. Now, rather than feeling like helpless observers, we have the opportunity to participate in events as they unfold."
The ancient Essenes used the qualities of thought, feeling and emotion to describe how we experience life in this world. Emotion is the power system that drives us forward in our world each day, and that power system has no direction until it is guided by our thought. The union of thought and emotion is feeling. The Tibetans were very clear to distinguish between their prayers and the chants, mantras and mudras they used to get themselves into the right feeling for prayer. They said that their prayer has no outward form because prayer is feeling.
That is interesting because quantum science is now suggesting that human feeling is the way that we move from one quantum outcome to another. Somehow human feeling is related to the outcome that we experience individually and collectively. What we now have is a "technology of prayer," which implies understanding how to do a thing and repeatedly get the same outcome. That is precisely what we are finding as we create specific qualities of emotion and thought in our bodies. That gives us repeatedly and predictably a feeling which Isaiah says is how we choose which outcome to experience at this time, good or bad.
THE LOST MODE OF PRAYER
How is this feeling different from other modes of prayer that we are used to in the West? Primarily in that they ask for something while this new mode invites us to create the feeling in our bodies as if the prayer had already been answered. Visualizations are powerless unless we breathe life into them through the power of emotion and feeling as if those visualizations had already come to pass. If this mode of prayer works as we believe, there is no reason for us to experience the catastrophic predictions because we now have the collective power to change reality. But we must come together to do so through mass prayer, using feeling fueled by the power of human emotion. This is such a powerful tool that in some of our seminars people have experienced a very profound and healing effect just because these people felt new possibilities open in their hearts and gave themselves permission to change.
When we embody a feeling, we attract that reality and the outer world mirrors for us what our inner world has created. We determine what we experience by what we have become in our lives. Whether we choose peace or fear in our personal lives, the world mirrors back to us those same qualities because the world honors the principles of creation. As the ancient Essenes said, "Become peace, for that is the attractor of peace to the world."
Interview with Gregg Braden:
In Search of Original Wisdom and Moving Towards Compassion
Dawn Baumann Brunke, Alaska Wellness
Here is a thematic arrangement of Gregg Braden's words and thoughts from our recent talk:
On Earth Changes and The Shift:
The context within which we are viewing the events of our lives and witnessing outrageous phenomenon (for our own scientists are documenting unprecedented natural phenomenon in terms of earth and space alike) looks frightening to many Westerners. As I have traveled through many of the indigenous cultures of the world, Egypt, Bolivia, Peru, Nepal and elsewhere, it is interesting that almost universally these cultures not only allow for the changes which are happening but they expect them and they expect them now.
Quite literally, there is a new species of human that is being birthed within this generation, at the close of this grand cycle of experience that the ancients called the Shift of the Ages. This new species has been predicated, prophesied, and expected through ancient and indigenous cultures. It is only in the West that we've been surprised and mystified because it is in the West that we've lost the texts.
On What Happened: Seventeen hundred years ago, key elements of our most sacred heritage were taken from the texts that define our history. In 325 AD, the Emperor Constantine put together the Council of Nicea. Essentially, he gathered together the historical and religious texts of his time and told the council that because so many of the texts were redundant, many confusing and some so mystical they weren't understood they were to come up with a condensed version. Twenty-five biblical texts were thus taken out of our references during that time an additional 20 supporting documents, such as the book of the Secrets of Enoch, were also removed. The books that were left were rearranged and condensed, and that's what we're working with today.
I am constantly in awe of how well we have done in our societies, family relationships, and science and technology without really knowing who we are, where we came from, why we're here and what we can expect to happen. The indications of this are that, at best, we were working with an incomplete understanding of the forces of our world and our relationship to those forces. The pieces that were taken out were the ancient sciences of compassion, the highly-sophisticated technology that we call prayer, and the role of emotion and feeling in our bodies. Those were the texts that were removed and those are the pieces that will now complete the wisdom that we're developing in the West today. On The Missing Texts:
Through mystery schools, sacred orders and elite priesthoods, this information has always been retained and we've always had hints that there was this body of information that might help fill in the gaps of our understanding of the world. The texts point to the fact that now, at the closing of the millennium, something precious, rare and unique is happening to the earth and the people on the earth. It has never happened before. The underlying current has been that something big is going to happen. In the West, it has been feared because the texts describing this have been taken away, whereas in the East and indigenous cultures it has always been a part of their belief system.
On the Essene Mirrors:
From the perspective of the ancient Essenes, every human on the earth is an initiate in the Mystery School that we call Life. Whether they are conscious of it or not, every human will experience in the presence of others mirrors of themselves in that moment. If we have the wisdom to recognize those mirrors, we may accelerate the evolution of emotion and understanding.
What the Essenes said was that for us to know and master ourselves in this world, we will see one or some combination of mirrored patterns in others. The seven mirrors are progressively more and more subtle. Back in the '70s, we heard about the first mirror, of who you are in the moment. The notion was that if you find yourself around individuals who are angry or dishonest, they are showing you your dishonesty or anger. Sometimes the mirrors would apply, but sometimes they wouldn't. We had discovered the first mirror, but had yet to see the other mirrors, such as the second mirror, which reflects what we judge in the moment.
This is tremendously powerful but very subtle. The ancient Essenes had a very sophisticated understanding of interpersonal human relationships and the role of emotion in those relationships. It's the role of emotion that we have carefully sifted out of our Western experience up until very recently. Now, as we go back into these texts, we see that it is emotion that proves the power and, when coupled with logic, true magic and miracles occur.
On Emotions as the "Forgotten Switch":
One of the great mysteries of life sciences is the question of why two-thirds of or genetic code is turned off. Up until discoveries in 1953, science has always believed the genetic code was fixed. Now, within the last three years, Western researchers have found that it appears the human genetic code is a variable code rather than a fixed code, and that it is our responses of feeling and emotions as we go through the challenges of life that determine which one of those codes are switched on and switched off.
In the ancient traditions, there is a quality of emotion and feeling and thought that appears to optimize those genetic codes and "turn them on" thus giving us longevity, vitality and tremendously-enhanced immune systems. That quality is what we today call compassion. That is the common thread of emphasis through these ancient traditions, this science of compassion.
On Light and Dark:
It's like a drop of water. In our Western technologically-oriented world, we try to compartmentalize water into hydrogen and oxygen. The reality is that water can only be water in the presence of both hydrogen and oxygen. If you look at either alone, you don't have water. It's the union of both that allows the miracle that we call water to exist in our world today. It's the same with light and dark.
It is impossible to have the duality of experience that we have in our world today in the presence of only light and dark. This is the irony, the great dichotomy, for the moment an individual draws the line between dark and light, the moment you identify something as light or dark, you have fallen in the ancient trap of judgment. The key to this time in history is transcending that judgement of light or dark and recognizing both as components of the whole, of the single experience.
On Light, Dark and the One:
One of the ancient tenets that may hold the greatest potential for healing of our bodies and bringing peace to our world is the tenet that reminds us that of the 6.5 billion or so people in this world, there is only one of us here. There is a single consciousness experiencing through many bodies, and the breadth of our consciousness and experience – from the lightest of the light to the darkest of the dark – are all part of that One.
Seventeen hundred years ago, we began to look at light and dark as opposites; we began to judge one as being better than the other when in reality we live the experience of both, and both are only possible in the presence of one another. Darkness is only possible in the presence of light and light is only possible in the presence of the dark.
On Moving Towards Compassion:
If we believe there is a single source of all that is, then we have opened the door to healing the illusion of separation. We have opened the door to healing the judgment of light and dark. In the presence of that healing, our body responds. I believe this holds our greatest possibility for the healing of our bodies and the healing of nations. By simply embracing the possibility that there is one source of all that we will ever know in this world, and that all we witness and experience is of that source, we are invited to transcend our judgements. As we do so, the polarities fall away.
The key to this time in history is to transcend judgement and allow for the possibility that light and dark are one and the same, and, as the Egyptian Master Thoth said, different only in seeming and part of an even greater force. As we embrace that, we open the door to the possibility of compassion.
