[Catalyst Daily #8] Birth 2012
Day One: Majestic Birth Extravaganza

from Byron Belitsos

Dancing last night at the Agape Center, we came home to the beloved community. The sublime Michael Beckwith presided, with his spirited church choir rocking out. Jumping next to me were Bob and Noel, the world-severs we all know for their travels to herald the Birth. At my side was Susan Marie, who has quietly managed Barbara’s hyperactive household all this year. And there was Birth 2012 broadcast executive director, Charlie Gay, hopping with his lovely partner. And out in virtual noospheric space was you, hopefully jamming with us in your living room or at your hub event.

It is with this joy thatwe bring in the next dispensation. How we create the Field out of which the Earth Baby is born. And we do it in the heart-felt silences too-in the cosmic stillness, where our Divine Source pours in its love and energies.

Our climactic finale that we’ve so long awaited begins at 11:30 am Pacific. Plus marvelous events before it from Thailand, Jerusalem, and more. This unforgettable production now has a few additional stars, including Gotham Chopra, who just released the film “Decoding Deepak”; Banafsheh Sayed, a sufi spiritual dancer; journalist Harvey Wasserman; and TV and film actor and singer Nia Peeples. We’ve got a few more sponsorship slots open for our Cocreator’s Dinner for people who sponsor this global program with a $5K donation (send email to cocreators@theshiftnetwork.com), by the way.

Guess Who’s Coming to Dine at the Feast of the Birth?


from Stephen Dinan:

Dear allies,

It is now upon us – the new beginning we’ve been building towards! We have an extraordinary program awaiting you from Agape today. Let us join in a spirit of union, looking at the world through fresh eyes. We welcome your presence today in our hearts as we join to mark this new dawn with reverence. We especially invite you to hold the noon moment as a global golden moment symbolizing the birth. Let us raise our prayers to the heavens.

Please invite everyone that you know to share this blessed moment with us by sending them to www.birth2012.com/tv

Thank you for your presence and allyship on this profound journey into a new era. Let’s create extraordinary beauty in the years to come and begin it today with an outpouring of love for our brothers and sisters around the world.


It’s Here: The Great Shift to the Power of Love

We thank Anodea Judith, author of Global Heart Awakening (forthcoming from Shift Books), for this very pertinent excerpt.

The human drama is nearing its denouement. The great unveiling is approaching, a time when the power structures of the world begin to crumble and people of the heart sing out a new truth. Many voices are joining the chorus, many feet are walking the path, many minds are dreaming possibilities for a magnificent future. For beneath the crises that are looming at every level of civilization, the global heart is awakening, beating out the rhythm of a new and glorious dance, calling us to a better way of living.

You who are dreamers and poets, executives and laborers, healers and teachers, artists and visionaries, parents and lovers – each of you plays a part in bringing forth the new dawn. You re the ones who will be leading humanity’s rite of passage into the next age. For the awakening of the global heart occurs as each of its many cells opens to the power of love in its own heart and joins together to pump life and breath into every corner of the globe . . .

The cultural transformation from the love of power to the power of love is the drama of our time. Ours is an era that future historians will look back upon, marveling at the magnitude of the challenges and changes we are now experiencing. They will call it a time of Great Awakening, a time when the best and the worst of humanity played their parts in the fate of human evolution. But if future generations are alive to tell this story, it will only be because the best of humanity prevailed and pulled together with a love so profound that the seemingly impossible was achieved.
