EVOLUTION. . .OMG! (Oh, my God!) The operative word in MastersConnection is Connection. The world is changing and the need to for masters to connect is exploding. It is so exciting and humbling to be a part of this amazing movement. This week's Question and Answer event with Ramtha brought an evolution of information about earth changes and future times to students around the world. We are so thankful to the Ram for addressing our questions and loving us into the future.

On Friday night of the Q&A event with Ramtha, Mike Wright, spotlighted our efforts here at the to help Masters on the March connect with fellow students all over the world who can help those students leaving their homes for safer places. Mike dubbed the MastersConnection2020com as the “virtual student union of RSE”. We appreciate the acknowledgement and will do our very best to fulfill that mission.

In this issue of the Newsletter we are publishing a flood of emails we have received from RSE students who are making life changing moves around the world. Your generous offers of assistance make us proud. May you be rewarded a thousand times over for your kindness to those in need. Click here for the Masters on the March listings

For those of you snug and cozy in your safe place we have an idea how to make that safe place even safer. Teri Simpson of Optimum Preparedness has written a piece for us about how to make your neighborhood more secure by establishing a network of communication, skill sharing and safety watch with your neighbors. It is great common sense advice with a step by step action plan. Thanks, Teri.

Also in this issue we are sharing some of the emails we have received from our readers who share our enthusiasm for our newsletter and their ideas to make it even better.

Speaking of making things better. We have an idea. We are thinking of sponsoring a Buyers Club. Imagine the buying power of 5,000 Masters. Move over Costco! Read about it here

The little Gods at Phoenix Rising School are studying neuron connections in the brain. I wish I could have studied neurons in elementary school. Click here to read about what they are doing now.

Finally, the work continues on our new website. We can't wait to show you our new logo, but Ben won't let us yet. The new website design will make it much easier to locate your favorite topics from the newsletter on the website. Until then, if you are looking for an article you saw in a previous newsletter, just go to archived newsletters to find it.

Have a wonderful week til we meet again.

Article of the Week
It's All About Communication - Part 1 of 3
By Teri Simpson

The Setup
We have home phones, cell phones, smart phones, sat phones and iPhones. We have email, instant messaging, text messaging and iPads. We don't really think much about communicating with others because it is as integrated into our lives as is air, water and food.

But what happens if the system breaks down? What happens if you find yourself with no home phone, cell phone or computer service? Do you think you might feel a bit isolated? Disconnected? Alone? Maybe a bit panicked? How long before techno-communication withdrawal would set in?

What I'd like to look at in this and the next couple of articles is what we can do to mitigate having a complete lack of normal communication. While we still have phones and computers, we can set up an infrastructure of communication that will serve us now while the technology still functions and that can also serve us after the conventional communication network no longer works. This has been a passion of mine since 9/11.

Shortly after 9/11, many of us participated in a voluntary month long “lock-down”, sort of a practice run to see how prepared for such a scenario we really were. We had around a week to prepare, with a Start Date and End Date. (Of course in a real emergency/disaster we would not necessarily have the luxury of a week to prepare, shop, etc.). We were to stay home and not leave our property for 30 days. No grocery shopping, no visits with friends (unless they too had been in lock-down status), no movies, no restaurants, and God knows, no malls or stadiums.

Recipe of the Week
Submitted by Cornelia O'Leary of NatureWise Farm

Steamed vegetables with potatoes with leeks.
Preparation and cook time 30 mins.
Serves 4.

This simple low-cost recipe works is one of my favorites. It works best with organic vegetables and ingredients as the flavors emerge and develop better. The other vegetables, especially the potatoes get lightly flavored with the leeks to give exquisite subtle taste to all the vegetables.

This dish is delicious in its own right but wonderful too with steamed salmon (which can be placed on top of the carrots at the same time as they are added to the steamer) or as a vegetable accompaniment to any meat dish.

Hot Topics
Your weekly dose of miscellaneous useful tidbits. Buyers Club

Everyone we know seems to be in a buying frenzy. They want to make sure they have enough toilet paper for two years and enough peanut butter and of course, a really big water tank(s). We have been thinking that together, we wield a lot of buying power. The kind of power that could drive a bargain with folks who are selling the kinds of supplies that our friends are interested in purchasing. Perhaps we can organize through the to generate volume discounts for our members.

You will be hearing from us soon about how you can participate in the MastersConnection2020 Buying Club. If there is a product that you think would be great to offer our members, let us know. We will be contacting businesses with our idea soon. If you are planning a major purchase in the near future and would like to have the buying power of 2,000 of your closest friends, tell us what you are planning to buy and we will see if we can negotiate for you and 4-5,000 of your closest friends. Stay tuned, this could get exciting.

Many of you are probably already subscribers to, but just in case we wanted you to know what a great source of information Steve is providing.

Thought into Action and Experience

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

How 10,000 neurons became Pennies for Peace, became generosity and global awareness, and became a math lesson.
By Jan Ferrari

Part One
It all began with a C.R.E.A.T.E. session one morning. The group was discussing how the brain stores information, and it was mentioned that it takes 10,000 neurons in the brain just to fire the color yellow. All agreed that no one could really picture the number 10,000, and one of the students suggested collecting 10,000 pennies to get a visual understanding. The children were excited to begin the collection. The next day sixty small, pink piggy banks were donated to the school, and they became the perfect vehicles for transporting pennies from home to school! Everyone agreed that the children would collectively decide how to spend the money once the goal had been achieved.

Tune in next week to read Part Two!

What Kids Do At Recess

“I am 1,000 percent behind this school.” - Ramtha

Ever wonder what the Gods are doing while you are in stewing and fretting about the future? You are canning and digging and bending rebar. What do you think the Gods are doing?

They play ball, have intimate conversations with friends, wrestle, practice new skills, act goofy, hang upside down, pretend, and generally have a great time when no one is telling them what to do!
