Weena - I hear you! We could definitely use a laugh. I'm always trying to include some humor to help us integrate and dive deeper - as you already know.
MR - Which branch of the military were you in? I was a military brat. How long have you been accessing the Records? You remind me of another friend of mine who accesses the Records.
I feel that you're right about most people not thinking about it or thinking we're alone. Especially right now, where it seems that survival/success is the main focus. I too wonder about the possible reactions from people, ranging from welcoming wonder and curiosity, to slight interest then back to my own life, to active resistance and denial.
Perhaps many who are already aligned toward the ascension process, have already heard about ascension in any number of ways, and maybe this announcement and our continued interaction with them will provide more insight and validity to it. Perhaps an announcement like this will be like a wake up call for some, and be a catalyst for many to start diving deeply into themselves, including any spiritual understanding, instead of just going through the motions. Also, I can guess that some people might want to simply leave earth and go someplace else with the aliens, without even going through any type of spiritual awakening. Still others might have their own agenda, whether it's politcal/religious/whatever, and see this announcement as contrary to their interests.
I'm curious about your insight MasterRishi. What do you see as possible responses?
