Editors Corner


Tonight is all about an Evening with Ramtha. One thousand or so of my closest friends will gather in the arena tonight joined by countless streaming students around the world anxious to know more about the future that is upon us. My life has been extremely chaotic in recent weeks and I hear from you that I am not the only one in the chaos of change. Ram always teaches what we need to know in the moment. I know Ram is always with us, but it will be quite comforting to be with him tonight.

Masters Connection will be published before this evening’s event, but if there is any important information from the Ram that RSE wants us to disseminate, we will send out an extra edition.

Did anyone else see the amazing anomaly in the sky last evening around 6pm Pacific time? Either there were two suns in the sky or one sun and a bright object that refracted a rainbow colored arc. You decide. Check out the photo here.

In this edition you will find 2 articles on Understanding the Fear of Change and Advice on Preparedness. These articles are used with permission of Superconsciousness Magazine. Preparedness is, after all, the antidote for fear of the unknown. Link here

Fear: The Siren Call to Change
10 Tips to Deal with Fear 

When most people think of fear, they conjure pictures of screaming women in slasher movies, horrible mindless villains, or heroes chased by zombies. But, for most of us, fear feels more like an insidious virus that our minds and emotions create to stop us from moving forward.

Fear is the mind/ego's way of saying "I'm not going there! I like being right where I am. I'm familiar with my current state. If I plunk myself right down here, nothing can hurt me because I already know this territory. I'm not worthy and if I stretch myself, I might get rejected."

Fear means you are not willing to venture into the unknown, not willing to take risk, not willing to accept and adjust to change. Fear is about ignoring imperatives to change, putting your head in the sand and expecting the problem to go away, allowing others to control your life because you may not have the courage or confidence to control your own. And fear always leaves your life messy, miserable, and myopic (limited in scope.)

You may not actually be aware of the grip fear has over you. And even if you are, you sometimes feel powerless to change because of past, tightly held beliefs.

But fear can be your ally. If you feel it, it is a siren call to change! When you bump up against fear, you know you are called to move forward, be bolder, take a well-calculated risk, flow with the change imposed on you, make the course correction you've been resisting, cross the seemingly impenetrable barrier, strike out on your own, act in your own self-interest, or reach for freedom!

The Coming Storm
Preparedness in the Face of Earth Changes

We live on a volatile planet. The earth has always changed, and the evidence of natural cyclic patterns of cooling and warming are preserved as historic records within our ice sheets. But today, climate patterns are changing at an ever-accelerating rate well beyond predicted models, exacerbated by our over-consumption of fossil fuels. The results tend to capture our attention, at least temporarily. In 2005, the world’s focus turned to New Orleans and the devastating impacts of Hurricane Katrina. Recently, more than 400,000 people were displaced in Tabasco, Mexico by the most powerful storm the region had ever experienced. Such events are becoming more frequent as well as increasingly powerful.

Deep within our glaciers, there are signs of an even more catastrophic pattern: recurrent Abrupt Climate Change Events (ACCE’s). Glaciologst and climatologist Dr. Paul Mayewski has coordinated the efforts of international teams of scientists to collect the evidence frozen below the surface in Greenland, Antarctica and the Himalayas. In this issue, Mayewski speaks with SuperConsciousness about the correlation between ACCE’s and the fall of known civilizations due to the desolation of agricultural growing regions. Glaciers, Gases and Global Warming: Interview with Dr. Paul Mayewski

Whether or not we are currently facing another ACCE, it is clear our planet is in a time of climatic upheaval. So how ready are we, collectively and individually, to deal with the effects of such change? Two-thirds of the earth’s population lives in cities, moving from one climate-controlled environment to another, office to car, car to home. Subsequently, we’ve lost our intrinsic connection with the ever-changing natural patterns.

The Passing of a Master
Ruth Walker Celebration of Life

A wonderful "master"and lover of the "Ram", Ruth Walker, passed this plane on Septmeber 23, 2011, at the age of 86. She has been a student of RSE since 1986 and attended her first event in Denver,"Changes the days to come".There wasn't a day that went by that she didn't speak of her great teacher, Ramtha and JZ Knight for changing her life forever. She was the one who introduced Ramtha to her daughter,Tani, who joined her on the path of the "Great Work" as well.

Ruth Walker

Ruth Walker will be remebered for her incredible generosity, great sense of humor and willful nature. An informal, local memorial service will be held soon and anyone wishing to attend may contact Tani Walker @ for further details and date.

A History Lesson

Railroad tracks

The US standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches.  That's an exceedingly odd number.  Why was that gauge used? Because that's the way they built them in England, and English expatriates designed the US railroads.

Why did the English build them like that?  Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that's the gauge they used.  Why did 'they' use that gauge then?  Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they had used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.

'Best ever' auroras seen over Britain
Hue and cries of astonishment: 'Best ever' auroras seen over Britain thanks to huge solar flares

A sunspot 62,000 miles across - ten times bigger than Earth - is releasing gigantic solar flares that have created astonishing light shows over Britain, described by one sky-watcher as the best he'd ever seen.
Known as auroras, they are caused by radiation particles from the sun bouncing off Earth's atmosphere and are normally only seen in countries in the far north, such as Norway.
However, they've been photographed as far south as Oxfordshire and in Northumberland, where the skies became a dramatic green and purple hue.

Hobbit house: The family home dug from a hillside and built with scraps scavenged from skips

Fed up with huge mortgage payments, Simon Dale decided to take matters into his own hands – literally. 

Armed with only a chisel, a chainsaw and a hammer, the 32-year-old moved his family to a hillside in Wales and started digging.

The result is a wooden eco-home – constructed in four months and costing  just £3,000 – which would look perfectly at ease alongside the Hobbit houses in The Lord Of The Rings.

Something Worth Knowing

SHTF Survival: Clay Pot Refrigeration
by Tess Pennington

Have you ever wondered what our ancestors did without refrigeration? How were they able to prevent their food from spoiling? Some of our ancient civilizations did in fact have refrigeration and used simple items they had on hand to create it.

The zeer, or clay pot refrigeration keeps food cool (icy cold) without electricity by using evaporative cooling. Essentially, a porous outer earthenware pot, lined with wet sand, contains an inner pot (which can be glazed to prevent penetration by the liquid) within which the food is placed. The evaporation of the outer liquid draws heat from the inner pot.

Storing the Bountiful Harvest
By Suzanne Wood of

This year we have an abundance of apples and raspberries. It can be a challenge to come up with creative ways to store the bounty. Of course some of those winter keeper apples will go into the fruit cellar,some will be canned into applesauce,and some given to friends and neighbors. This year we decided to add a twist to our apple storage. We added raspberries to our applesauce and we canned some of those apples into apple pie filling.

My grandmother used to can raspberries and they really do can well. You might think that they would be too mushy. They  keep their shape and are a great treat in the middle of winter. My father called them canned razzel dazzels. It is easy to do. Just fill hot canning jars with raspberries,cover with hot simple syrup (water and sugar) and water bath for 15 minutes.

Phoenix Rising School

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

Horse Trainer Mary Beth Meyers Mentors Phoenix Students

When you first step foot on the land at The Way Station, a thirty-one acre horse ranch in Rainier, you may notice a palpable sense of peace. “There’s something mystical about this property,” says Mary Beth Meyers, a horse trainer and healer who conducts Harmonic Riding and Equine Integral Movement workshops. “When I saw this place, I knew that it would be something for the community. It just was logical to me, that this is a place for children, this is a place for education because it’s close to nature.” In the past year, Meyers has welcomed both individual students and entire classes from the Phoenix Rising School to her ranch, and co-produced a major benefit for the school in June, 2011.

Although she knew she wanted to do something with children once she moved to Rainier, she wasn’t sure exactly how or with whom. Then an experience at a Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) event crystallized her intentions. “I saw the presentation that the Phoenix School did, and I said, ‘This is it.’” After the event, Myers got together with fashion boutique owner Giorda Elie to create a benefit for PRS that raised nearly $5,000.

Next, Meyers was approached about mentoring three students for two hours a week. One student, an eleven year old girl, wanted to be a veterinarian she grows up; another twelve year old boy had grown up on a working farm, and the third student was simply passionate about animals. “It was really great because the children seemed to sincerely want to know more about these majestic animals,” says Meyers. “They made a really wonderful connection. So for me it was an opportunity to share my experiences and what I know, and also to learn from them.”

Being around horses has beneficial effects on kids, Meyers has noticed. “The biggest effect is calming. It also teaches them more respect for nature, non-verbal communication and to see that there are things they don’t realize they’re projecting. They wonder why the animal behaves in a certain way, but it’s the animal communicating and mirroring back to them what they are and what they’re projecting. That helps them learn how to be with the animals, but it also helps them to be more pure in their observation – to see what’s in front of them, rather than just jumping in and wanting to interact with it. Maybe that thing doesn’t want to interact with them.”
