The whole idea of “reality” is that it is put at “arm’s length“ in order to try to experience a separateness of self.
In some of the previous articles you have been led to touch upon the fringes of what is the manner in which you, as human beings, see the reality which you enjoy. We hope to be able to pass across further analogies in the future which will tie together some of these conceptions and misconceptions and form a, let us say, more coherent picture, more intelligible picture of the reality you enjoy and how it is created by consciousness.
We need to have in many instances the prompts of questions because it enables the mind of the instrument to go more easily into an open, more waiting mode and then we are able to pass through that information with little hindrance. Whereas if the instrument is just waiting for whatever comes in, the monkey mind, although not apparent, is moving the tuning needle in a random fashion across the frequencies, it is not staying still. When the mind focuses on the question then the needle stays still. We are able to latch on and once we start to be able to transmit then we don’t get any interference. We are able to use the clear channel thus created. Do you understand?
This is a two-way street. It takes two to tango and we need a question, however wild, however not concerned with the subject, just to get the focus and then we can switch the subject.
In the previous session there were different voices speaking. Can you explain please?
The voices you hear are, as you would expect, produced by those who basically take centre stage. As we have said before the majority then sit back and wait for, what we have previously termed, the teachers, their thoughts, to predominate. When their thoughts predominate then a certain aspect is generally adopted in order to produce the tone of voice. Just as various aspects of personality are produced then would you not say that the voice is indicative of a certain melding of consciousness?
So the voice changes depending on the personalities that are coming to the fore. Some are very confident in what they are saying and therefore that will come across. Once more, if you had to hold the attention of a roomful of people then would you prefer this type of voice to come across or, let us say, David’s ordinary voice which may be hesitant and repetitive, not always of course, but sometimes and maybe with some changes of direction? Whereas those who are prepared with what they wish to say, simply because they are not in the time-based environment, can therefore put everything together, we may say, previously. There is no need to be looking for the next word except to pick it out from the instruments repertoire.
As we are speaking now you will find a certain resemblance to that which you just listened to even in terms of the halting speech and gaps between the sequences of words. This can alter as someone else decides to take over and talk on a different subject. So perhaps, if we were to talk about music and rhythm and dance and singing then we could invite others to take over and a certain difference would be heard because the emotions and the audience for the material on those subjects would not want to be spoken to in an authoritarian, lecturing type of intonation but would prefer a softer, warm, fuzzy feeling, relaxing, happy and so much more enjoyable and upbeat. There is a certain amount of excitement and empathy going with the flow of the music so the voice will change as the subjects change. If there are purely teachings coming through then you will wish them to be sharp and clear in such a way that you can transcribe them effectively and those reading the words will, whether you know it or not, pick up, connect with the certainty, the authority coming through those words. As they read the words they will connect with the feeling. They will, on another level, hear the tones that you now hear and so the consciousnesses that are part of the readers overall conscious will hear in much the same way as the instrument’s consciousnesses are now listening to the words. You will understand that all the consciousnesses that are presently listening to what is going on are generally accepting what is being said as reasonable and logical because after all it is coming from their majorities as we have said before. Each time something comes through, shall we say, or is spoken by that majority, then it becomes, what you might call, group think, group belief until the next consciousnesses join and someone says “what about this then”? This may cause a moment of reflection and “well yes, we’re willing to listen”. Discussion commences, the instrument starts to, talk to yourself, (itself) say or others ( presumably non-physical ) and different opinions are picked up once more.
Now, you might say that this can all be done on our level but the reason that we focus on the stage is because the feeling is different when you are on the stage and certain things are enacted on the stage that you cannot enact in our reality. You cannot destroy a creation, shall we say. What we are saying here is that we create something in our own reality in imagined aspect and unless we give someone permission to destroy it, and why should we, then it remains our preserve. When we come into the physical we know it is co-created and we deliberately push our instrument out there to see what will happen. Sometimes the unexpected happens which is why we are there in the first place, to experience. (Flow of words suddenly stopped)
All is change. We change from one moment to the other and perhaps part of what we were saying was not of interest to the overall consciousness and therefore minds drifted, you might say, and there was no longer the intensity of focus on the words being spoken and as the interest waned the words no longer are spoken. Do you understand that?
Just as your mind, as you know it, can wander in the physical then it is far easier for minds to wander in the non-physical with each idea. A plethora of ideas come by, it is so easy to get distracted. Whereas with yourselves in the physical world with your eyes open it is hard to get distracted if you are focused on a particular endeavour and your sights, sounds and senses coming to you are all from that endeavour as obviously other things get blocked out. It is not so easy to block things out in the non-physical, you have to be even more mindful as to what you are about.
I am having trouble dreaming up questions at the moment.
You do not have to write down lists of questions. You can ask, as you did with the bees, as you did with the earthquakes, with Nepal. Just ask for more information on things that are of interest to you, you can ask about global warming and what can we tell you? You feel that the seasons for example are constructed by conscious beings of which you are unaware?
I can’t follow you.
You think that it is all automatic because the earth swings on its axis round the sun but you are thinking in linear terms once more. In the world of no time there is always the present so which consciousness is thinking “I’ll move this way, I’ll move that way “? What is being experienced?
Perhaps you could explain how you can have seasons with no time.
Simply, you are in the world of time, your seasons are in the world of time but if you wish to create seasons in the world of no time you create the seasons. All seasons are available at all times, so it is simply where you wish to focus. Do you wish to focus on an autumn scene or a spring scene? Do you wish to focus with the trees bursting into bud or the leaves falling? At the present time you are in the autumn and it gives you great pleasure in seeing the different colours of the leaves. They present a very pleasant picture for you to observe but of course after going through a cold winter it gladdens your heart to see the fresh young leaves appearing on the bare branches.
And you have a belief in all this, so what you believe in, what you expect, you create.
It would be very muddled and confusing if you said what you concentrate on you are creating because you could desire one day to be seeing the green leaves and the next day to be seeing the bare branches and the next day to be seeing the green leaves. There has to be some semblance of order surely?
Where are you speaking from? When you use the word “you”, are you speaking from within physical reality or from without physical reality?
From within physical reality.
Where is physical reality being created from?
From without. So if you say that by concentrating on something, by desiring something you are creating it.. you can’t… you must have some semblance of order, there must be some semblance of order.
So, if you put yourself in the position of your higher consciousness can you experience many selves simultaneously in different environments, in different centuries, in different times of the year?
This is something that is very difficult to get a real hold on. The answer is yes but it’s just…
So can you have several television screens, shall we say, each one showing different seasons of the year?
If you watch one screen to the exclusion of others are the other screens still there?
That’s a little bit like the tree falling in the wood isn’t it? One imagines yes they are.
You are able to watch four screens, each one displaying the activity in different seasons of the year. You focus on one in particular because you are interested in, say, spring. Are the other screens still beaming out their information?
You have your answer.
Everything exists at all times. You can focus on whatever you wish to focus upon. Back to your plays, you are sitting in the centre of six plays going on. Whichever one you care to focus on you can be involved in. When we say involved in, mentally involved in. You can be, caught up in, what is going on, until you switch yourself to another one. But the plays are still going on. Now imagine they are continuous plays and you will dip in and dip out as you wish. In some you will decide to stay, “this is a most interesting one”. You have to take on board the fact that you are able, and you do, you are, living many, many lives at once.
You must understand that you are connected. In much the same way that you are connected by your telephone with various people, are they still there?
Can you talk to them at any time? Where does your interest take you? Do they know you are here? Are you connected?
So, if you had e. g. a Skype screen for every person that you were connected with arranged around this room, you could look at this, that one or the other one. Whichever one you wished to speak to and they wished to speak back to you. Would you agree?
Now would you say that your connection exists with all of those people?
It just depends upon which connection you focus upon. Once more we go back to the speed of cognition and then realise that you can be focused upon as many as you wish to. All at the same time depending on the speeds of cognition relevant in those realities.
In general, realities are constructed requiring slower speeds of cognition than those that pertain in the reality of the constructor. Do you understand?
I think so.
If we take the amount of, we have to use the word “time”, as the time necessary to speak and understand the sentence in a reality, say a physical reality, then you can measure that in seconds, say, but in another reality, in a computer reality, the mind that can work at the pace of computers, that is understood in nanoseconds. Therefore take the seconds that are required in the physical reality and many other types of realities, the nanoseconds that it takes for receiving and transmitting from the centre enables you to say that (understanding, decision making and direction) basically it is a piece of cake, you can just handle the whole lot at once, multi-tasking with ease. Able to keep up with everything because as soon as the thought arises in one reality, you answer, immediately.
Yes, fully understand.
We may arrange it so that the compressed data, we might say, then has to be decompressed in the brain or the mind. Can you understand what we are saying here?
Yes, no problem with that.
In other words if you wish to download a film from the internet it can be compressed into a few seconds and yet when you play it, it may be an hour. The same principle applies in that the speed of apprehension, cognition of what is going on and the instructions given back, the instructions can be given back in compressed form to be then expanded in that particular reality’s time scale. So it is not a great leap of imagination to understand you can be living in all these realities simultaneously.
If we can come back to your question, please repeat it.
I was asking about focus and the necessity of continuity but you have explained that quite well.
Continuity is merely in your perception, purely in your perception and we hopefully have hit upon a good analogy here in that of data compression and expansion. It is very difficult for you to understand that the consciousness works at, you may say, enormously greater speeds because you cannot understand instantaneous. Due to your limited human ability to understand, let us say it is hundreds of times the speed of light, and you would reply, I could not measure that, to me it would seem to happen at the same time and that it exactly what does happen. It is simply that there is no space for light or signals to have to travel through.
All is always connected and all is always known. The whole idea of reality is that it is put at “arm’s length “, shall we say, in order to try to experience a separateness of self.
We are obviously constrained by the lack of knowledge available in physical reality of the conditions pertaining in non-physical reality and even if the instrument was well versed in today’s science you will no doubt agree that all the methods of explanation derive from physical reality.
Terms simply do not exist for what happens in non-physical reality even if non-physical reality is contemplated in the first place.
So we are back to “dark matter”, “dark energy” and who knows what? We try as hard as we can to find analogies for you to understand the “ever present”. If you sit down and purely follow the logic that consciousness is all there is, consciousness lights up in various formats in such a way that other consciousness, shall we say, is able to see what another consciousness is producing. Do you understand this?
I can picture it in my mind.
Put it this way. As you look out from your eyes, can you see your face?
Would you agree that you are producing your face?
Your consciousness is producing its idea of what it wishes to project but it cannot see its own face, you have to have a mirror. If the mirror wasn’t there somebody else would tell you, but that is another consciousness projecting itself, so you would see each other and inform each other?
Now, imagine all of consciousness doing just that, not just humans, everything is representing itself and then because you adopt the senses of recognition applicable to the physical reality you can enjoy the manifestations of all the participating consciousnesses. Yet all this is, is a conglomeration of (individual) gestalts, groups of consciousness, (producing) a conglomeration of images. Yes?
So although we have referred to imagination before, it is each imagining his own projection, her own projection, its own projection and understanding and enjoying its part in the reality. Knowing that it is being seen by others and it is seeing. See and be seen. Yet, you can think to yourself that these are only thought pictures being broadcast and you are merely tuning in to the broadcast, but those broadcasts are fitted in, in that the tree, broadcasting, is in concert with the lake that it is sitting next to and with the mountain that is in the background and with the consciousnesses of the people sitting underneath the tree. So you get what is a composite broadcast, co-created and co-agreed.
This is not too difficult to understand once you try. As we have said before it is a question of designing and creating the set (the set in a play or film). This is what is happening but all that is actually there is the thought. Can you grasp this?
Yes, I can envisage many tuning into and adding to a reality like joining in a virtual reality game.
All is connected and you are enjoying the thought realities but you shut out the fact that it is a thought reality and adopt the belief that this is solid reality ( although we all know that nothing is “solid” we accept the concept because it is necessary for our functioning) because it is more enjoyable, it is different. As you aware by now there are many, many realities that you can enjoy. You just choose those which you find suit you more than others.
So it wouldn’t matter if physical reality no longer existed?
Physical reality is..
Just one of many.
Just one of as many as you care to contemplate. You cannot understand other realities, you can get some idea but..
The trouble is you think of them in physical terms. It is impossible not to think of them in physical terms. You might think of them in different colours or things of that nature but you still think of them in physical terms?
Put yourself in the position of someone who is blind and lives in a world of just sound and has no touch, say. All he has is a world of sound. So shut your eyes and imagine the blindness. Imagine those sounds being just sounds in your head, thoughts; thoughts being translated into the only language you know, the language you speak in or the language of pictures, but you would have previously needed to have seen to understand what they were. So you must take yourself to another level and imagine that if you were able to receive thoughts, in pixel form say, you could look at the blank screen in your mind and then a picture starts to appear. So although you think “I am blind” this picture starts to appear and you realise that this is something that exists in the thoughts of others and they are working together to present this, “now what can I add to it”?
So just as the artist looks at the painting, you in your thoughts see the picture and you decide to create or paint or light up a little corner of the picture, provided that those already in the game agree. You then enter your contribution to the picture that is going around and the picture has a certain permanence to it, but just as you are aware of what happens to everything, it is constantly changed by those who join and those who leave. So you have a moving picture, a changing picture. (Which we interpret as reality)
Once you sit and start to think these things through you will also realise that you can’t just change the picture without the consent of all and if you are a small player in a big picture you are not going to change much, are you? As above so below you might say, but you will find your own niche. It may not be fully to your liking but you will find it or you will turn your focus away and find another niche which is more to your liking.
(The last two paragraphs are reminiscent of the saying “We are all threads in God’s tapestry.”)
To All of Our Readers
Please let us know if you can understand what has been said whether or not you agree with it. We would really appreciate feedback as we need to know that our work is worthwhile.
P.S. Just before posting the above I came across an article about an artist, Pat Hines, using Microsoft Paint creating “realities” just using a mouse. His imagination became intention, focused, he pointed and lit up and the picture formed. Also https://qz.com/983188/this-stunning-graphic-novel-was-entirely-illustrated-using-microsoft-paint/.
Imagine many “artists” (gestalts) combining to create the picture, “the reality”. Now see the parallel, these people are co-creating realities using their imagination.
