Interview with Ned Dougherty By Bill Moyers Interview with Sandie Sedgbeer Interview by Lori Schneider
By Dr. Mary G. Elsea

It was a death to end all deaths, culminating in a resurrection an hour later and a book with an unqualified prediction of 9/11 six months before it happened.

On July 2, 1984, nightclub owner Ned Dougherty died, entered a tunnel of light and met Lt. Dan Campbell, a friend killed during the Vietnam War. Campbell, communicating telepathically, told Ned to remember everything because he would be going back; he had a mission and this experience would guide him in that mission.

Dougherty’s near-death experience (NDE) was vividly detailed. When he touched the wall of the tunnel of light, which looked like a tubular ocean wave, crystal-like liquid sparks exploded into brilliant colors.

One-third of the American electorate, if a recent Gallup Poll is accurate, believes the Bible is literally true. This past November, several million good and decent citizens went to the polls believing in what is known as the "rapture index."

These true believers subscribe to a fantastical theology concocted in the 19th century by a couple of immigrant preachers who took disparate passages from the Bible and wove them into a narrative that has captivated the imagination of millions of Americans. Its outline is rather simple, if bizarre : Once Israel has occupied the rest of its "biblical lands," legions of
the Antichrist will attack it, triggering a final showdown in the valley of Armageddon.

You've heard about the Indigo and Crystal children: their remarkable powers of creativity, compassion and connection with Spirit. But are they real or imagined? If real, just who are these kids and why are they here?

That's what we asked Sandra Sedgbeer, managing editor and publisher of Children of the New Earth, a glossy magazine devoted exclusively to the care and feeding of these extraordinary "new" kids.

In reading this interview, you will be touched and moved by their open, loving hearts, formidable psychic powers and bold determination to bring all of us into the world of our dreams.

In this riveting interview, Vietnamese Buddhist monk, author and teacher Thich Nhat Hanh looks deeply into the nature of war, the abuse of prisoners at Abu Ghraib and how America has been overtaken by fear.

Read the brilliant clarity of a peace and justice advocate whose words speak to the heart like those of Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. And be sure to click on “Being Peace” for an interactive meditation by Thich Nhat Hanh.

The power of Buddhist compassion to heal even the horrors of war is vividly depicted in "The Light at the Tip of the Candle," a harrowing, beautiful story of a Vietnam vet led by love to peace.

Jeremy’s dolphin adventure begins in Denver - his anticipation about swimming with dolphins so high, his body wouldn’t be still. But then, Jeremy is never still, his body and his mind always racing, always in motion. Jeremy is bipolar, autistic and has multiple learning disabilities, but ultimately, the names of his challenges don’t matter. The effects of his disabilities matter constantly.

Jeremy’s first glimpse of the world was before his head fully emerged from the birth canal. Only part of his face exposed, he opened his eyes and began to look around the room – something the nurse midwives exclaimed they had never witnessed before.



Super Psychic Kids  In increasing numbers every year, “New Children” are being born around the world who have “x-ray” vision, move objects through the air with their minds, and know the future. And these abilities are just the tip of the iceberg!


Watch That Amygdala!  Why do we suddenly lose our tempers and abuse others with word and deed? When will we learn to master our emotions? If the amygdala—not a Dr. Seuss character—continues to have things its way, the answer to those questions is “Never!” But now that the awesome powers of the amygdala are known, maybe, just maybe, we will begin to exert control over our reptilian impulses and give peace a chance.


Pray at all times knowing right prayers are answered. Anything that ever is, is forever God’s. All that I am is God, and I am part of God, therefore nothing but divine harmony is expressed in my life. I individualize God and have direct contact with truth. My intuition is perfect, my spiritual perception is perfect. I know God is my wisdom, my intelligence, so I am always directed to right action at all times, as God is the only doer.



One Humanity

There's a wonderful story about Milarepa, the Tibetan Buddhist saint who as a young man went out into the world to experience life and returned home to find his house filled with demons. He was angry and afraid at first and wanted to fight them or flee. Instead, he did the unexpected.

Bird chirps, vanguard for coming rain,
Dog bark skitters through twilight village.
Smoke raises a column through the pines,
Contented families dine in golden windows.

Life’s pulse is gauged in the hollows, the intervals between events. If you want to see Tao (the path), you must
discern these spaces. This requires leisure, the chance to sit and contemplate, and the opportunity to respond to inner urgings.


You have been telling the people that this is the Eleventh Hour. Now you must go back and tell the people that this is The Hour.

There are things to be considered: Where are you living? What are you doing? What are your relationships? Are you in right relation? Where is your water? Know your garden.

There is a river flowing now very fast. It is so great and swift that there are those who will be afraid. They will try to hold on to the shore. They will feel they are being torn apart, and they will suffer greatly. Know the river has its destination.



It doesn't matter what magazine or newspaper you pick up these days, there it is--the evidence of violence: the killing of innocent people, the terror of aggression and destruction. How do we, as caring, compassionate, conscious people maintain our inner peace in the face of war?
