July 28th 2017 All Worlds are Thought Worlds, All is Always Connected.                                   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?

Yes.

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?

Yes.

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?

Yes.

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.

Yes.

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?

Of course.

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?

Yes.

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?

Yes.

Can you talk to them at any time? Where does your interest take you? Do they know you are here? Are you connected?

Yes.

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?

Yes.

Now would you say that your connection exists with all of those people?

Yes.

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.

Yes.

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.

Yes.

Terms simply do not exist for what happens in non-physical reality even if non-physical reality is contemplated in the first place.

That’s right.

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?

No.

Would you agree that you are producing your face?

Yes.

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?

Yes.

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?

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.”)

Thank you.

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.

Thank you.

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.

July 21st 2017. (i) Why are all snowflakes different? (ii) Descartes, Darwin and the Big Bang Theory. All peering through a glass darkly.

(i) Why are all snowflakes different?

Why are all snowflakes different?

Snowflakes, you might say, are their own personality as projected into the physical but, as an artist decides on a picture that is to be projected, then, because of the nature of the physical pattern, the molecule of water and its crystalline existence, wherever you care to focus i.e. either in the liquid or the solid form as regards the ice, the liquid form is a fluid crystalline structure and the solid form is still showing itself in a crystalline fashion, there are certain lines, rules to be followed in the process of moving from liquid to solid. Just as all manifestation is predicated on a cumulative growth, shall we say, in that certain things will grow in a hexagonal form, others will grow in an octagonal form etc. because (of) an initial design, then what is expected to be the final outcome will then have to be (wrote?) back to its origination to determine the most suitable process by which to achieve the end result.

Now, from the molecule of water in its free state, i.e. as part of vapour, then the receptors on the molecules have to be designed in such a way that they interlock, which is why they are called receptors, with other molecules to merge together to form the fluid which then can, you might say, move around. As the temperature cools down, the density of the molecules, in terms of coming together in a slower moving union, to you appears to be a rigid and solid structure. It just means that the fluidity as such is no longer apparent. Much as when you see a pane of glass, that appears to be absolutely solid, when it is leant against a wall, within a certain period of time, long or short depending on its construction, it will start to bend. You will then understand its inherent fluidity as opposed to its seeming rigidity.

We have covered many aspects here in a long-winded fashion but if you wish, look upon it as being a pattern formation which then attracts the molecules of water. Your scientists may look upon this as being a mechanical operation but you must remember that each molecule of water has its own consciousness and its own limited amount of free will and desire to join in the construction of the snowflake and so you can either say that the idea of the snowflake was there and the consciousnesses joined in because it seemed like a good idea at the time or you can take the crystalline growth structure.  Even so you would have to postulate that the existing pattern existed or that, much as in the branching of a tree, only certain possible avenues of movement were possible. Yet when you consider that each snowflake is different from the other it would be interesting to hear what your scientists have attributed to that particular aspect of a snowflake.

So would you say that there is a catalyst for each snowflake?

If you work on the basis that there is a cooling element present, then translate that into, let us say, the potential for an idea, for an experience, to become a reality. In other words that those water molecules, the consciousness of those molecules, upon feeling, let us say, or becoming aware of the drop in temperature, the opportunity arises to experience being a snowflake. So you could call this the catalyst, the temperature drop. It is the sudden realisation that this is a possibility, “let’s try this”. Like all experiences, it can be a fleeting experience in that as the snowflake falls towards the warmer air then the molecules once more move back into the droplet or vapour stage in which case you can compare this to having a ski run. You experience a run down the ski slope, a molecule experiences a transition into a pattern of ice and then finds itself once more back at the bottom of the slope, shall we say, in the water.

Now, would you like to give the description of the catalyst that has been propounded?

I have read that a snowflake forms around a minute speck of dust.

And what encouraged……..

That’s what I don’t know.

We have just described to you something that you can understand in that particular personalities, (remember) consciousness is inherent in each gestalt that is forming in the molecule of water, and then (comes)  the greater idea which requires, let us say, millions of molecules of water to (focus together) to form a particular pattern and as you know if we conglomerate all these minds together then it is very difficult for any particular conglomeration to be like another because it would require that all be of the same mind.

Do you understand?

Two distinct conglomerates, two distinct gestalts. Each one comprising the same number of, let us say, million minds, when all are interacting all over the place. The mathematical probabilities are enormous, it will never happen.

Do you understand this?

Yes.

Which is why each manifestation is different. Whatever you look at you will see that nothing is the same (nothing is identical). So when you say that it forms around a minute speck of dust would you not think that as all atmospheric air contains minute specks of dust and the fact that a snowflake can only form under certain temperature conditions that in the formation it is inevitable that it will encapsulate certain specks of dust. One could say that “what was the cause and what was the effect”? Is the cart before the horse? But, did they address why is the pattern different (in every case)?

No.

Would you not think that that is a very important part?

The subject was not discussed in any depth.

Have you ever read of anyone postulating a reason why each snowflake is different?

No.

No, because if you go down that pathway you will have to acknowledge in the end that there is a designer behind the design of the snowflake. Yes?

Yes.

And as you are aware, that is a subject that is generally not addressed.

 

(ii) Descartes, Darwin and the Big Bang Theory. All peering through a glass darkly.

That is another thing that I wanted to talk about. The blueprint. We talk about blueprints but when you think about, not only humans, but animals, they are born and they are born small. As they grow certain things have to happen to the body, not just get larger, changes have to happen. I find that says to me, there is some form of design. For example, teeth fall out and larger teeth replace them. It is so complicated that there has to be some form of design in some fashion, not a single designer but something that plans and decides.

We have covered this many times before. Of course there is a blueprint, of course there is a pattern, of course there is a plan. Now, if you just start from being a single point of awareness and then the thought comes through about a cheetah. What is this? A cheetah? And as you latch onto the thought other thoughts and all the associations rush to it, you might say, or you become aware of them (like a Google search). You are aware of a cheetah and then because you are interested you find that you are aware of, to a certain degree, that many others are also aware of a cheetah and are interested in what it is. We then move on to where the association and the thought comes through “I wonder what a cheetah is like?” You can take it from there, as the thoughts continue on, trying to imagine what it is like. As the intensity grows all the associated imagery comes in. All the pattern of the cheetah, from the moment of, what you might say, cheetah egg meets cheetah sperm, every alteration, every cellular division can be apparent.  Of course because we have spoken many times before about instantaneous, and your only way of looking at it is to relate it to supercomputer speeds, then you can scan through the plans, you might say, the patterns, of all prior cheetahs and see at each stage, each moment, each cellular change what the patterns are. (An accessible repository of prior knowledge akin to morphic resonance – see Rupert Sheldrake.)

Now, this is on such a vast scale, far beyond the capability of the human mind, the human brain to comprehend but if you take, let us say, you break the cheetah plan, blueprint, memory, whichever way you want to look at it, the film, the video recording, break this down into all its various aspects and, let us say, you have got a trillion cells organised into say X number of organs, muscles, veins, blood, cells etc. which brings it all down to a much more comprehensible arrangement. Then you need to have volunteers to organise and maintain, and hold their imagination, because you must remember that in the end this is imagination. Hold their imagination in the particular area in which they have agreed to operate in order that you can experience the actual physical cheetah between all of you. Now, if you follow the logic on that, it is just a vastly infinite exercise but to those who are at the, let us say, atomic level, the particle level and they are working together, it is no different, except in terms of scale, between you organising a vast factory of 20,000 people. It all works seamlessly, raw material goes in one end and the finished object comes out the other. There’s not much difference is there?  Like putting food in the mouth and producing blood cells in the body, it is a process, a manufacturing process. You simply have to scale this up to realise that it can be done, it is just a question of organisation.

If you take the fact of instantaneous communication then it is no big deal, is it, to scale those numbers up by a factor of 10, 100, whatever?  It is simply that you are only used to operating within a certain time scale. Where time is no problem and it can all just “happen’ if you wish it to happen, then it is not magic it is just simply that everybody knows what to do instantaneously.

Take a shoal of sardines and instead of imagining 10,000 sardines imagine 10 trillion sardines, they all still move at once, because they are all aware at the same time.

The patterns for everything, as we have stated so many times, are in the block of stone. Even before the first cheetah the possibility was there. Someone had to think of it and even design it but the potential for it already existed although that doesn’t mean to say that it has been actuated. This can carry on forever because the potential is always there. So once somebody wanted to think of, imagine, a cheetah, then it was possible because all things are possible, all objects, all events.

Who is the thinker?

Each awareness is the thinker. We come back to this area in which there is still contentious opinion in that this is chicken and egg, isn’t it? Where did the first thought come from? Then you will say “where did consciousness appear from”? You cannot possibly answer that because you are then back in the same position and this will always be. You are only aware of what you are aware of so you cannot be aware of where you came from. (All exists in a timeless present. You are who you are, when you are, wherever you are – wherever you focus.)

Thank you.

We cannot expect to get the answers to everything simply because in order to preserve these elements of excitement and uncertainty certain knowledge has to be withheld otherwise the reason for being, as far as physical is concerned, would disappear. Wouldn’t you think that this is applicable to all realities that are going to be experienced otherwise there would be no point in experiencing that reality? Yes?

Yes.

Wherever you focus you will be aware of the parameters that exist for experiencing that particular reality and so you can get together with others and put together parameters for another reality and another reality. But how do you stand back and say to yourself “what reality am I in “?  Because you can only be aware of the reality you are focusing into. No matter how hard you try, at no point can you be yourself and another self, a greater self, because this becomes a series of Russian dolls. As soon as you try to step outside yourself then as soon as you realise you have stepped outside yourself you say “then what is outside me (this self?) So you want to go into that one. So how far can you go? Infinity once more. Whenever you try to see yourself from a different position it carries on ad infinitum.

But that is merely a theory, a logical theory.

We all have to rest within a certain understanding that, as was said, “I think, therefore I am”. Then you may say  ”well, I am aware, therefore I am and if I am aware that I am then I must be thinking”. You then have to become aware of “are there any others like me”? And what have you just produced? You have just produced a string of thoughts. Each awareness is producing a string of thoughts and so they quickly come together. Do you understand?

Because the thoughts attract the awarenesses or rather the focus of each awareness on that thought becomes what you may call, a talking shop, and if you take the gestalt back, in terms of a big bang say, you can take the idea with its trillion focuses and move it backwards to the original awareness that said “this looks interesting”. Simply the thought that “this looks interesting” attracted others. Like ants to the Ant-Rid. Like bees to the honey and suddenly there is a swarm around and the swarm feels the intensity and realises the potential that intensity gives it to create. The excitement builds and the manifestation happens. Suddenly,  ”we are doing it, we are doing it” and the desire arises to explore, explore the reality that has been created, has manifested. “how do we do it?”

Well, it’s all available, isn’t it? All the videos, all the patterns, all the blueprints. This is next, that’s next, that’s next. It is simple then, you just follow the numbers. You focus on the next pattern, produce it, the next pattern, produce it and so on. And so you get growth but as you do it your ideas change and because you have all the different consciousnesses involved in it from previous cheetah then slight alterations are made so cheetah number 2, 3, 350, 3050 are all slightly different from the last ones. Because they are composed of different viewpoints and all the while you are following the same pattern, because after all you did intend to experience being a cheetah, you might be a slightly different cheetah. “Can this cheetah run faster, can this cheetah jump higher”?

If you think about this in human terms and the consciousnesses involved then which abilities do different humans tend to focus on more than others? You can soon see that one set of minds focuses on being able to jump higher “yes that’s a good idea, I would love to experience that” and so you have a high jumper, a high jump athlete. Another one says ”I want to live in the lap of luxury and be looked up to by everybody around me” and so you get a very successful businessman. Another one wants to sing and have vast audiences. Now, all these ideas attract various minds. Others want to be part of a wonderful picture that everyone comes up and admires. And so are we coming back to your snowflake and the wonderful picture of each snowflake which is an expression of artistry?

It is all consciousness in motion and until this is recognised you will get these trite explanations of how such wondrous creations are brought about.

You must learn to ask the questions immediately something is put up as a simple explanation, “What about? How? You will see how very few are willing to go beyond their simple explanation, because those that do inevitably come back to the fact that there must be intelligent design behind this. Yes?

Yes.

So this is all pretty ho-hum in the end because you realise that everything is an expression of a conglomeration of individuality. It is majority opinion, majority design and you just go along for the ride basically whenever you lend your arm to the wheel. You add your little bit of energy to the manifestation and you experience what is produced and you say to yourself “well that was enjoyable or now I understand what it means “ and then you move on and on and on because you have no option but to do that. As much as you try to still yourself to not focus on any idea how can you still your awareness and not find something of interest? It is difficult for you to say nothing is of interest as you always have certain beliefs. You cannot rid yourself of beliefs, it is impossible to rid yourself of beliefs once acquired and therefore beliefs will elicit reactions to ideas, emotional reactions or interest, same sort of thing. You cannot not be aware, so although you can try as hard as you possibly can to ignore, at some stage you will react. Some idea will come by; when we say ”idea” of course, we mean events, thoughts. It’s all the same thing, happenings, OK. Something will attract your attention because this whole sea of action is surrounding you all the time. You can only shut yourself down to a certain degree and then you have to keep a very strong focus on ignoring everything that is happening but just like any time you try to keep your attention focused for an inordinate amount of, we can only say, “time” then at some stage it will slip and you will react. From that moment the spell is broken once more and you find yourself in the maelstrom whether you like it or not and unless you are extremely obsessed with being non-involved then sometimes you can extract yourself from the focus but as soon as you are focusing of course there are many others with you and even though you may extract yourself then you simply find yourself with those of like mind. Once you have the knowledge even though you focus somewhere else the knowledge is within you because of the interconnection and you cannot break the interconnection, it is part of who you are and every awareness is. Every awareness. Can you imagine a neuron in the brain being able to break all its connections with the other neurons?

No.

It would cease to exist, but as a point of awareness you cannot cease to exist and so you cannot not be connected. You can simply endeavour to be very unsociable.

Therefore the message is back to what we said in the first page of your website “Life is a bowl of cherries”. You are here to experience, you are focusing here to have a look and see what is worth doing, what attracts you and then picking that experience that you wish to go through, do it and then pick another one and another one and another one until some entirely new bowl of cherries attracts your attention.

 

 

 

 

 

(i) You need never be apart from those you love. (ii) Realities arise from focusing on the web of thought.

(i) You need never be apart from those you love.

We have sometimes alluded to the fact that you are never alone, you are never apart, you are always in contact, you cannot be separated and perhaps it is only right that we try to give you some analogies as to how this is possible.

Now you must start from the fact that you are first and foremost what you would term “spiritual beings”. You are, in the hackneyed phrase, spiritual beings enjoying a physical experience, which is 100% right of course. Now, coming back to our normal definition of consciousness, you are “conscious beings”; you are conscious entities who have decided to embark upon a range of experiences in a co-created environment that you term physical reality.

As we have explained so many times before and you probably understand by now, you are currently focusing (into) many realities simultaneously, what you would term living several lives at once. Now try to think what that means, that you and all consciousnesses, and let us just stick to the human species at the moment, are all focusing different places and living out a series of experiences in what is to you a separate reality in each focus. So, then you think to yourself, where is the centre piece of this consciousness that is sitting there looking around and focusing here, there and everywhere. Of course it is very difficult for us to put over the point to you that your unit of consciousness or what you seem to be only becomes reality to you when it is enjoined with many other units of consciousness through what you would term, to make it easier to understand, a form of neural network. So, if you can imagine, the energy of many coming together enables you to experience the joint perceptions of that particular gestalt of consciousness focused in that particular reality along with many other gestalts.

Now of course all these gestalts are interlinked. As you are. Your unit of consciousness is linked with many others which is linked with others, others, others, others, which is why all knowledge is available to all, because everything is totally interlinked. Now if you take this a little bit further and, as we have said, you have to start from the fact that you are conscious beings, spiritual beings if you wish, then the physical being is merely a construct of, what we termed before, imagination. It is a construct, it is a construct for your perception to perceive and for your perception also in sensory terms as in touch, taste, hearing etc. While this is going on, you’re focusing here, there and elsewhere, you are talking to each other all the time.

Let us give you some simple analogies to illustrate this fact. One that you may want to take a tour through the thought process with is the rather recent innovation of performing surgical operations at a distance using video technology and robotic instruments. We will not try to be too technical with this as because you only need to grasp the idea. So, the surgeon is sitting in a hospital in town A whereas the patient is in a hospital in town B, say 1000 kilometres distant. The appropriate equipment is set up and the surgeon can put on his visor, let’s put it this way, insert his hands into the equipment and then he is able to see and become part of, shall we say, the reality in that other hospital. All connections are made and the full operating support staff are participating as they would be should the surgeon be physically present. The surgeon proceeds using a robotic instrument which he can control and manipulate in such a way that it faithfully mimics his own actions.  At the same time he can focus around and communicate within that operating room almost as if he were physically present.

What have we got here? We have a disembodied being, i.e. the surgeon is 1000 kilometres away, operating a robot, an instrument, a vehicle, to keep our terminology constant in relation to the previous teachings we have put through and so you may look upon him as the spirit being. This is pretty much the same process that is going on with your own physical body and the spirit being. Now what is the surgeon doing? He is focusing in the other location, isn’t he? Which is exactly what is happening to you of course.  Now the surgeon, although looking through his visor and being focused upon the reality of the remote operating room, is not alone. He will have, depending on the difficulty of the operation, a backup team around him as well. Additionally there may be many other observers, medical students, teachers and other interested parties.  What does this mean? So this “spiritual being” has other spiritual beings around him, doesn’t he? (others of his gestalt). Yes?

Yes.

And yet he is in contact with all those in the remote operating room. So take the one where the patient is as the physical operation and the one where he is as the spiritual operation. He is in contact with both. He is in full contact with the personnel in the room where the operation is being performed and he is also in contact with all the, what you might term “spiritual beings”, around him. He is in both places at once, he is on the stage and he is in the back of the theatre. Now he can get lost in the detail as well. He can get so immersed in the operation (as indeed he should) that he may block out, ignore, be unable to hear, the whispers of his back up team as he is concentrating on the observations of his staff surrounding the patient. You can probably understand that. Yet if he allows himself to take a minute off to contemplate his next move and enters the silence, shall we say, then he will hear the whispers of his team back at base. What you might also term as intuition in another context. The team may take the opportunity to get his attention and proffer their advice. Run the scenario for yourself and you will get the idea.

Let us now try a simpler analogy. One that may give you a more basic understanding.

You go to a party. There are many hundreds of people at this large party. It is spread over a large area in a vast house. You wander from room to room observing what is going on and suddenly you happen upon, say, a poker game and you decide to join in. Another person finds that the Cup Final is being shown in another room and he decides to join that particular group. There is a fashion show going on somewhere else….. just run the thing yourself.

Various locations, various realities. (All arising from various focuses)

All these consciousnesses are involved in all these various things and depending on how much they are interested in what is going on then will they be aware of the other activities, the other realities? In most cases, not. The poker game may go on for hours, the Cup Final also. Other activities might do the same. Now take this in terms of your time and extend it to lifetime lengths and you will find that some people will spend their whole time focusing upon one particular activity, others will move from one activity to another. And yet they are all in the same place, aren’t they? And they all have the opportunity to step back from their focus and walk in to where others are watching the Cup Final and say “How is it going?” “Great, thank you” and they walk over to where their wife is watching the fashion show “are you OK honey?” “yes” “well I’m playing poker so we’ll catch up later” .

You are all in the same place, together, but you are all focusing upon the particular scene, activity that is holding your interest but you are aware that you can contact those you wish to contact at any time. Now let us say that there is a break, a rest time, for tea maybe. So what happens? You all wander back into the refreshment hall don’t you? And what happens to your focus? Your focus is temporarily laid aside e.g. the instrument is put to sleep, if you can understand the analogy here. And then you all talk to each other about what you are doing and agree to meet up when you are finished with your current focus.

Can you see this in terms of your daily sleep ritual and in terms of your life. There is no time, just a question of focus and of multiple simultaneous focuses.

Run this scenario in your own mind and you will see that you can both be together, or not, at any time you wish to.

You will find it difficult because you are focused, or so you think, purely in this reality, but, in effect, the part of your consciousness that is at the back of the theatre is able to pop in and out of the various realities and keep in touch with all the other gestalts. So in fact what you consider to be people who have been here and are now dead, which you now realise are not dead, you have never been apart from in the first place. You have always been able to talk to each other but you will not realise this until you get back and relinquish the belief that this is the only reality that you can inhabit at any one time. That is no different from trying to play poker while you are totally engrossed in the football game. You cannot give the attention required to both so you decide to focus on one and shut out the other. On another level you simply separate your focuses.

So you can understand, that although you find it hard to believe, you can never lose anybody, it is impossible to be disconnected. You can only choose to focus somewhere else and each time you wish to focus back you are together again. Which is why you can be, what you might call, “all things to all people” and you can have many, many love relationships. They all work and nobody gets possessive because it is the same for everybody, you cannot lose.

You need never be apart from those you love. You can always be together whenever you wish to be together. All consciousness is forever connected.

At the same time you are not tied to anybody. In the same way as you cannot lose anybody you have full freedom of choice as to whether you wish to answer the call, respond to the thought.  There is no way anyone can enter your awareness unless you open the door. In this reality you block out information from other realities so the same process applies. In general when these things happen, if you look upon what happens here, in many cases when people divorce some say they never want to see the other party again. Others stay good friends.

 

(ii) Realities arise from focusing on the web of thought

Let us try to explain to you how you are eternally interconnected and yet you can be experiencing many different realities simultaneously. So, let us picture a large web, any web you like, as you can see there are  pathways through the web and everything is interconnected so you can imagine neural networks, a spider’s web, whichever you like, but whatever happens in one area is felt or can be connected through to any other part. So, you have got a knowledge web, whatever you wish.

Now, for purposes of analogy let us locate you in point A of the web. If you look to the North, shall we say, you can see radiating around you, away from you, within that field of perception, all the connections and therefore all the realities arising from those particular connections. You might say arising from the thought of that gestalt if you wish, and if you focus in intently then that is the reality, the instrument etc. ( the body, the environment that you consider yourself to be a part of, your sense of “I” and your sense of the reality in which that “I” dwells).

Now of course if you then look West you have a different set of connections and accordingly a different reality, a different experience, and so on to South and to East and then you can graduate if you wish to SE, SSE, NE ,NW, however many realities you wish to be connected to.

Now, if there is a large scale emotion felt in one particular focus, one particular direction, one particular reality, let us call it a movement in the web, then a slight indication, a slight tremor, might be felt in another area of the web. You could put this down to a sudden feeling coming over you of happiness, sadness, whatever you wish. That could be what you might term a bleed-through from an alternate reality, another simultaneous life, another simultaneous “I”, one of the many “I”s that you are experiencing at any time. It is not too difficult to actually picture this in your own mind and watch what happens. Look at the web, look at your focus, see yourself as that one unit of consciousness in there connected with everything else (to all the other units of consciousness) and then see, as you look in one direction, all the interconnections light up, see them turn into colour, into a scene, you being part of that scene, see your body there and then see yourself believing that you are the body in that scene. Let’s call that North, now switch to East and see a different set of lights light up, it may look the same but you are actually focusing using (adhering to) different rules of the game, different parameters and a different scene appears and a different ”I”. (the particular gestalt you are now focusing into (East) will be creating a reality of its own which may differ somewhat from what we know as the conditions pertaining in North).

Are you following me?

Yes.

And does it sound relatively simple?

Yes, thank you.

But of course you are there all the time, this connects to our previous expose that at any time you can switch focus and be in whichever reality you like with whoever you like ( one assumes the feeling must be mutual) . None of them ever disappear but you have the choice of focusing wherever you wish to focus and so do they. You must remember that your speed of cognition is basically instantaneous and so you are living all these lives, experiences, realities simultaneously.
