20th June 2018 The Sense of Being Stared At.

I know that you have already spoken about this but would you like to enlarge on the sense of being stared at?

Let us say we have been in the connected mode whilst cogitating on the term “quantum entanglement”. The thoughts going from, you might say, David to David. Yes?

Yes.

Then the answers are being accessed. Entanglement means connection, as simple as that. What have we said so many times before about universal interconnectedness? Everything is connected to everything else but what activates, let us say, the awareness? It is that connection being focused upon. If the connection isn’t focused upon there is no intensity. We will use the word intensity because it is an easy one to understand. As soon as you, through the physical eyes, look at another person you have activated the intensity on that link and so the intensity is felt. The person being stared at realizes “somebody is contacting me”. We have used the word contact but they are aware that “there is an interest in me”. You understand that?

Yes.

Therefore they look around, just like any curious person, to find out who it is that is interested in me. On another level of course they know immediately. But, once more on another level, from stranger to stranger, would you answer?

Probably not.

No. Or the answer could be “yes, can I help you”. “oh no, not really , I am just sort of looking”. Now take that as being the conversation that goes on at the back of the theatre level, shall we say. Does that explain what happens?

Yes, thank you.

Imagine the perceived neural network, and the flashes of light going across it. You look at the person, the flash of light goes through the entanglement and the person notes the light. It is quite simple really. The same applies to the business of the dogs knowing when their owners are coming home. They keep the line open, you might say, waiting for the desired thought. It is all about interconnection. You have your social media. As above so below.

Once you let your mind run through the process of interconnection and the interaction that activates the recognition then it is quite simple really for you to think these things through for yourself. So you might say if you didn’t have any knowledge of the situation that David was able to think this thing through for himself, but of course there is always the little eureka moments coming in “Ah, I understand, this is what happens”.

Now, did you discover it for yourself or did somebody just give you a little helping hand?

Yes.

So the lesson is, if you wish to derive a lesson from this;  let your mind move in the silence, shall we say, and silence meaning the one- pointed focus upon the particular question that you are trying to find an answer to, excluding the other myriad thoughts that may intervene, and you will find your way through the labyrinth. If you do attempt this then just stay with it and gradually the resonance will pick up and you will tune in. All knowledge is available. Which is why, to repeat again, “Ask and it shall be given to you; Seek and ye shall find. You may work hard in your efforts to obtain it but sometimes it is better to just sit back and allow.

11th June 2018 Consciousness and Memory

Does the unit of consciousness have a memory, how does it hold its memories and does it hold its memories in the order of experience given the absence of time?

Would you agree that memories are thoughts?

Yes.

We have spoken before about thoughts being held in a repository, shall we say, where they eternally exist, and so would you think that memories being thoughts could also be held in that fashion? (Morphogenetic fields come to mind.)

Yes.

On that basis therefore would you agree that the thought store can always be accessed?

Yes.

So memories can always be accessed. Now would you also agree that the memory would be entangled (connected) with the unit of awareness that had the experience?

Yes.

Therefore if the unit of consciousness wishes to access its memory store it can do so merely by focusing?

Yes.

With regard to the sequentiality would the thought that is wished to be remembered as a memory be that of a particular instance?

Yes.

That particular instance would commence at a certain point and successive thoughts would follow, much as we said before when focusing upon the sequential patterns. The history of your life is there in, we must say for your purposes, is there in all its sequentiality and that it runs from birth to death, so wherever you start your focus running it will then go on in that established pattern. Yes? So if you wish to go back in that pattern you can of course do so.

Now when in the physical you find it difficult to remember in reverse order. You may remember something that happened on June 4th when you were 12 years old because it stands out in your mind but what likelihood is there of you being able to remember what happened on June 3rd?

Little.

Exactly. Why?

Because it needs to be something that made an impact, that made a difference.

It does not stand out in your memory as it was not of any importance to you, of any particular note?

Yes.

So would you be bothering to try to try to remember it, for no reason?

No.

We think we have answered that particular question.

Comment:  Now consider the NDE’rs accounts of experiencing their life review. Additionally if we give credence to the doctrine of quantum entanglement then it becomes apparent why one also experiences the feelings of those who you interacted with.

Another question. Can a unit of consciousness re- experience a gestalt which it was previously part of but has since dispersed e.g. a human physical instrument?

Once more we go back to the store. Everything that has occurred in the experience of that particular gestalt during its passage from birth to death has been recorded. If you, as a unit of consciousness, wish to recover that memory then you can insert yourself into the pattern sequence. You can focus once more upon the pattern sequence. It is simply that you will be more in the position of an observer because you only have the sensations, the emotions portrayed, received. You will be able to re- experience those stored memories but at the same time you will not be able to experience them from the unknowing state (the state of uncertainty as to what will happen in the next moment) you will experience them from the knowing state. Do you understand?

From having been there before?

Because when you were focused in the physical instrument you had blotted out all information as regards your provenance, let us say, you were focused entirely on the stage. Now when you access the store you are no longer on the stage, are you?

No.

So although you can watch the action, perhaps recognize the action, recognize the feeling, you cannot not but be aware of the fact that you are following a process of recall. Do you understand?

I think so.

You have accessed the memory. The intention was to access the memory in a bid to relive the moment, but in that bid to relive the moment you are aware that moment is not, to use your words, of this present time. So how can it have the same impact because you are effectively in the same position as being in the back of the theatre? Do you understand?

I’m getting there.

It is as if you are reading your autobiography. You can remember, maybe, the shock or the pleasure as set out in the particular paragraph within the autobiography and yet you are fully aware that this is not happening in your present moment.

Yes.

It will no longer have the impact. In other words you see it from a point of detachment.  (not involvement) You can “experience”, relive the moment but from a different point of view. Can you understand what we have said?

I think so.

It is like watching a film of your life. Much the same way as the NDE’rs will speak of their life review but it doesn’t have the same impact as the NDE’r is still seeing it from a, let us say, semi-detached point of view. Once you are fully in the next focus shall we say, or in the elevated focus above all your subsidiary focuses, then you are seeing it from the detached or interested or academic point of view. Now do you understand?

Yes, thank you.

Comment: It makes you realise how precious each moment is. You will never pass this way again, each moment is unique in its perspective. This life is precious, it is our only chance to experience it in this fashion so make the most of it, treasure it, give it your full attention. Consign yesterday to your personal history and live in the now.

June 2018 Inter-dimensional Communication.

Inter-dimensional Communication

Would you be able to inform us as to the process involved in communication between dimensions?

You can easily imagine for yourself the ability to communicate between various places and what you might refer to as dimensions. You will simply picture a group of humans in one reality or dimension, as you call it, speaking into some science fiction device and then you will create the conception of a group of “aliens” listening to such transmissions and communicating amongst themselves.

Now of course this can be extrapolated to multiple dimensions or even to an infinite number should you wish to speculate. But what is it that you are actually saying? You are merely saying that there is a possibility of communication between dissimilar species inhabiting different planets, galaxies, universes, shall we say, and there is the thought that information can be exchanged.

Now, you are aware of your physical reality and you have the belief that others inhabiting other realities are aware of their realities and yet as we have said before so many times, consciousness creates its realities and consciousness creates different realities. So what is the factor that is common to all these realities? It is the consciousness that creates them. So do you not think that consciousness can communicate with other consciousness and to continue with what we have laid out so many times “other gestalts”?

(See:   https://realityandyou.com/2018/02/06/quantum-entanglement-non-locality-and-interconnected-consciousness-6th-february-2018/

So we have this basic underlying consciousness which, for the purposes of explanation, we have set out as units of consciousness, units of awareness, watching the ideas floating by, focusing on one. Others focus on it as well until a sufficient consensus is formed about the idea that a level of intensity is reached whereupon the reality of the idea that is being focused upon is manifested. All those involved in the focus then experience that reality. Now it may be that the majority are needed to create the reality but even those who do not agree with the particular aspect of the particular idea that is being manifested can still experience it if they wish to stay with the program, shall we say.

So, yes, there is interdimensional communication but instead of thinking about it as from one reality to another think about it as going back to, what you have termed as “the source” which is the originating consciousness. Now you can look at that phrase “originating consciousness” as being singular or a multiple but of course if you have absorbed by now our previous information then you will understand that all communication is possible through the originating consciousnesses. Generally once you have come to considering communication between realities you realise that it is actually communication between the gestalt consciousnesses that are creating those realities. The awarenesses behind those gestalts can of course communicate with each other even though they are involved in separate gestalts. They do have, which you will agree with, the ability to think their thoughts and those thoughts are then able to be seen.

Have we answered the question to your satisfaction?

Yes, I think so. Thank you.

Now, there is another aspect.

You have the “intrusion” into your reality of such things you term as “unidentified flying objects” and various other inexplicable things as well. You may say that the consciousnesses involved in a certain reality are curious as to the existence of other realities, other dimensions, in much the same way as your own scientists are and those who we will term as “travellers in consciousness”. You have this suspicion that these other realities do indeed exist.

Now if you manage to discover certain parameters as you probe around these ideas and you connect with other gestalts you can see that in some instances there are realities which are almost a hybrid of two other realities, (as sometimes in dreams where you find yourself moving or flying in a gravity free seemingly physical reality) in other words a connecting bridge. You might also say that bridge has the ability to, let us say, “transform” the idea, the object, however you wish to focus upon this particular subject, into a form that can be fleetingly apparent or, let us say, holographically apparent in another reality, for perhaps a limited period of time. All you have to do when you want to envisage this is to think of a group of consciousness focusing on another reality that they suspect is there and they come across certain parameters that they feel may be endemic in this reality such as your looking into black holes and how they function, what happens in a black hole?

If you focus enough and you understand a little bit there is a possibility that your thought will be able to manifest in a certain manner in that other reality but you will probably be unaware of it. It is unlikely that you will be aware that you have appeared in that other reality (look at examples of bi- location where the subject is unaware of the appearance of their “doppelganger” in another location). This is much the same as in the talk that we had about accessing other attributes, other abilities from other lives that you are currently carrying on, experiencing. We have spoken before about the gestalt, let us say, that is wishing to experience several different lives at once and the data flow, the thought flow, the intention flow, the emotion flow between the “on the stage” focus and the “back of the theatre” focus (between the observer and the observed) in all those different lives and yet all the information flow comes back to the central gestalt and thereby to each awareness within that gestalt.

So as each emotion, event is perceived and experienced then it changes you a little which is the process of forever becoming. Let us call it the centre (and thereby each awareness focused into said centre, gestalt) is being changed by all the events in all the realities at the periphery. So a certain, say, traumatic event in one reality may colour your reaction to a similar event in another reality. You will not know why you take this particular attitude, but you do. There will be some aspects, as we have mentioned before with taste, for example, where you will try something and say “I don’t like that” and yet logic says “Why don’t I like that”?

Taste is a simple analogy but let us take emotions where you are mildly surprised at your reaction or lack of to certain information or events. You may feel that your reaction was not empathetic, rather callous and you wonder why, a little guiltily maybe. Well put that down to one of your, let us say, “bleed-throughs”. It could be that you experienced the same thing in another reality but at the same time, at the centre, the back of the theatre, you are fully aware that it is unreal. It is only the illusion of reality produced by the imagination. You may have had the shock of the initial experience, as we showed in our analogy of opening a door for example, and seeing the man rushing towards you firing a gun, you slam the door shut and then realise there are no bullet holes whereupon you tentatively open the door again and the same procedure is repeated. Open many doors and soon there will no longer be any effect.

So you could have this traumatic event in one reality, it will have an effect and yet you see it again in another reality and it does not have quite the effect. You won’t know why, “I should feel absolutely shocked at this, but these things happen.”  (Inter-dimensional desensitization?) Some part of you is saying “Don’t worry, it’s all just imagination, you don’t have to get upset about it.”

You have this interdimensional activity, you have the bleed-through from various lives, all information is available to all. Every endeavour is made to keep things separated so that the full experience, enjoyment and otherwise can be had in all the different focuses but inevitably some things slip through. A little bit of carelessness here, a little bit of “well it doesn’t matter any way” and sometimes as you have found with David you can actually seek and look for that particular talent, that singing voice, that style of speech as others look for how to play the violin like Yehudi Menuhin or how to paint like a great master. If you focus long and hard enough you will be able to tap in to that, as previously referred to, morphogenetic field and pick up the information but you have to have that total intent bordering on belief that it will happen and indeed it will.

You create your own reality.

Let us just comment on what is happening in physical reality today.

You will agree that it is full of uncertainty. Yes?

Yes.

What have we said before so many times? You come here for the uncertainty and the excitement. Now, the world has got faster, you might say. Everything seems to speed up as each decade passes by.  There is more activity, communication is quicker and consequently you are more aware of what is going on. You are far more aware of interconnectivity and interdependence and as each event occurs you are aware of the possibility of knock-on effects and so uncertainty increases by leaps and bounds. As fast as one thing happens in one place something else happens in another and it is almost impossible to follow any particular predetermined path leading to a probabilistic outcome. Near chaos is becoming the order of the day and rarely does anything settle.

On the other hand the reality has got its compensations in the sheer interest. You are never short of interest. Whenever you look at what is going on in the world there is something happening whereas 200 years ago things happened very slowly, communication was slow and therefore new decisions took time but now communication is fast and decisions are made quickly. So you can look at what is going on here and see that it has become a far more exciting playground and as we have said before you wonder why the human population is increasing rapidly and yet you look at the amount of activity in the human centric part of reality and you can see there is a lot of excitement in anticipating outcomes and deciding on your own way of navigating through the minefield.

Whereas in some other species lifestyle does not seemed to have changed in several thousand years. Many of those species are dying out. Is there a reason for this? Could it be that as a consciousness looking at physical reality which existence looks more interesting? Same thing applies here. This of course depends on your looking at that part of physical reality that involves, let us say, mobile creatures of which humans are a part. If you look at other areas of physical reality say the Earth itself, the trees, the oceans, those areas are in, you might say, another dimension almost. They are experiencing their own reality, they are not experiencing human reality and their reality appears to be relatively changeless in terms of our own timescale, the human timescale.

So you may wonder about the possibility of inter-dimensional activity between the oceans and the humans. (given that all are productions of consciousness). Is there any communication?

I wouldn’t know.

You have very few explorers in this area. One explorer was the Japanese researcher Masuru Emoto who studied the effect of emotions on water crystals. Would you consider that to be an example of inter-dimensional communication if you considered that water was inhabiting its own version of physical reality as humans inhabit their version?  (Remembering that we all create our own reality within the confines of a larger reality.) The thought of one influenced the activity, the creation, of another.

Yes.

So you have inter-dimensional communication. You are using the word “inter-dimensional”. Now what do you understand by dimension? Do you mean a different frequency, parameters, realities, you name it? It is something that you are not aware of and you are not aware of how the consciousnesses that manifest water, think. They are obviously aware of your thoughts but are humans aware of their thoughts?

Not that we know of.

The same has been found with plants, dogs and other living organisms. We are surprised to learn that these “species”, those inhabiting a different “perception’ of reality, shall we say, are able to pick up our thoughts and understand them. So why is it that we do not seem to pick up their thoughts? Or is it that there is so much to do in our own particular human-centric reality that we do not feel the need to communicate and simply block out the thoughts from others?

That is quite a possibility.

Maybe it needs our undivided attention to the rapidly changing panoply arrayed before us whereas say a molecule of water may describe its existence as same old, same old.

Science Discovers Consciousness.

Further evidence that our Universe may be a ‘cosmic hologram’

(Taken from SMN Newsletter May – June 2018)

Just over a year ago, a joint research study by a coalition of teams from four universities in Canada, Italy and the UK revealed the first observational and cosmological scale evidence to support the premise of our Universe being a cosmic hologram.

hologram

They did so by analysing irregularities in an energetic relic of the early Universe known as the cosmic microwave background (CMB) whose radiation was emitted around 380,000 years after our Universe came into being.

Publishing their findings in the prestigious journal Physical Review Letters1 they were able to show significant evidence to support the view of our Universe being innately informed and holographically manifested. In their view as substantiated as the traditional hypothesis of cosmic inflation for the basis for these irregularities.

The idea of a holographic Universe which was first proposed in the 1990s, posits that all the information that makes up our apparently 3D spatial reality is encoded on its 2D boundary with the information pixelated at the so-called Planck scale.

Professor Kostas Skenderis a Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the University of Southampton in the UK and one of the lead researchers of the study, commented: “Holography is a huge leap forward in the way we think about the structure and creation of the universe. Einstein’s theory of general relativity explains almost everything large scale in the universe very well, but starts to unravel when examining its origins and mechanisms at quantum level. Scientists have been working for decades to combine Einstein’s theory of gravity and quantum theory. Some believe the concept of a holographic universe has the potential to reconcile the two. I hope our research takes us another step towards this.”

A further paper in Physics Review Letters around the same time, by lead researcher Johannes Handsteiner of the Institute for Quantum Optics and Quantum Information in Vienna2 and his colleagues, used light from distant astronomical sources and entangled with laboratory photons to experimentally show the reality of nonlocal connectivity of our Universe to a distance of at least 600 light years and thus supporting the view that our Universe is fundamentally inter-connected.

Coming around the same time as the publication of my book The Cosmic Hologram: In-formation at the Center of Creation3, these discoveries back up the numerous evidence across many fields and all scales of existence of our Universe existing and evolving as a unified entity; innately informed and holographically manifested. And such realisation does indeed, as Professor Skenderis hopes, point to how, for the first time, quantum and relativity theories can be reconciled by considering energy-matter and space-time as complementary expressions of information.

Even more importantly, the increasingly compelling evidence is revealing that reality is informationally based, that mind and matter are essentially unified and that consciousness isn’t something we have, but fundamentally what we and the whole world are.

Genes R Us (Richard Dawkins revisited) 7th March 2018

Would you discuss how we relate to our genes? Are we our genes?

So let us start with the latter half of your question, “Are we our genes”?

Would you say that the physical body is a product of your genes in that the instruction manual for growing the body is contained within the genes?

Yes.

So, on that basis then, this construction manual has come from an amalgam of the product of two previous sets of genes? You are OK with that?

Yes.

So now you have a hybrid?

Yes.

Now go back and start looking at what you might call, the family tree and keep taking that back and back and back. Some have estimated, have they not, that if you traced it back as far as you could it all arises from a small handful of human beings. That is feasible of course. Now we go even further back and we say that once we were sea creatures that emerged from the sea onto the land. The rest is history. We don’t go back much before that in speculation do we apart from the fact that we could say “How did these sea creatures come to be”? If we have progressed as human beings through our various stages and then we go back to the sea, what was our progress there?

If you keep going back and back you are just following the same procedure as those mathematicians who have concluded that the whole thing is the result of a Big Bang?

Uh huh.

So where did the first protozoa come from, where did the first quark come from, where did the first lepton come from etc. etc.? On that basis we have to say that this was all the product of the Big Bang and the Big Bang came out of nothing as far as we know or it was a singularity, a point, an infinitely dense point to account for all the matter that has proceeded from it. We don’t say “perhaps we could create this as we go along” because that raises the question “where did it come from”?

Yet we now say that things appear and disappear into and out of the void. Well, if that is so then how come a little bit didn’t come out of the void in the first place and now a lot comes out of the void. So we go round in these circles of conjecture.

But coming back to the genes, we have a parallel here with thinkers throughout the millennia who have decided that this was God deciding to create something to experience, to see what he could do, and so we come back to the Garden of Eden. First there was only Adam, so, where do you want your starting point? Was there only one gene or more genes or other genes? Or did somebody say “it’s no good just having one colour, if I am going to paint something I need several colours” and so we have the colours of the light spectrum. Take that analogy and add it to everything else, the sound spectrum etc. etc. etc. All the waves in other words, and all the combinations of waves because if you want diversity you need to have different combinations.

Now we have discussed this matter of personality before and although we haven’t touched upon genetic traits you would say that genetic heritage could possibly be an influence on the resultant personality and if you then take the logical extension that the genes are conscious, because everything comes from consciousness, is a product of consciousness, then those consciousnesses are carrying memories. The genes obviously carry memories and patterns. We have spoken of patterns before and how when you think of something you imagine the pattern or the patterns instantly arise, of all the cheetahs as we have described in a previous example. When we referred to a manual what is a manual but a pattern, so you can think of all these things as one.

You have consciousnesses that wish to build a physical environment in order to experience the separateness and the uncertainty etc. Would you not think then that these genes are conscious?

Now you have your Richard Dawkins who wrote a book about “The Selfish Gene” which is all about survival, that the genes use us for survival. Wouldn’t it be easier to say that consciousness expresses itself through genes and uses genes to create new instruments to experience the physical? You will then be able to say “Survival, but that is only because you see it from the point of view of the life and death of the instrument”. In reality it is merely focusing through successive “build-outs” of different genetic combinations through which you can then experience the physical for as long as you like and why not?

Why would you just build one instrument to experience the physical? Wouldn’t it be easier to have some basically ready-made patterns? What about when we put together two sets of genes from man and woman, say? Now you talk about choosing your parents, have you considered that you are actually choosing the type of personality you wish to experience? The type of body, the type of personality, subject to environment, but you also choose the environment remember by choosing your parents. Put that aside and we will just look from the point of view of the genes.

You wish to experience a certain hybrid of something, so you look at this person and that person and what they have. Perhaps they are already married, perhaps they are not. You just survey what is out there, what the patterns are. You can see the patterns remember. You can’t see them here, but now of course you can take the genetic profile of each one and we daresay that your geneticists can, by looking at the sets of genes, make a prediction as to the result of certain combinations although they may not know which ones may predominate in the end run but they can outline the probabilities. Which is why you are now seeing the results of genetic modifications of various living instruments, plants and animals and increasingly the human, if you step in at an early stage.

Let us continue on the theme that, yes, you could say easily “I am my genes” because the consciousness that is in the genes starts the build, it has the original idea and then it attracts more and more other consciousnesses into the gestalt as the body grows and the experiences become greater, more diverse and more intense. Consciousnesses join for the experience at these particular points and so you could easily say that a baby in the womb attracts X consciousnesses but if we consider a teenager who is experiencing the full exuberance of that time of life then you might expect a greater amount of consciousnesses to be attracted. The same goes when you have a family and there is the intense love for the children, the love for the partner and the different experiences that come with adulthood. The gestalt will wax and wane throughout the lifetime.

Now as we have given the nod to the concept of reincarnation, yes reincarnation, well it isn’t really reincarnation as such is it and yet on the other hand it is. It is merely focusing from one instrument into another. That is all it is. If you take a look for example, we have covered this ground before as well, that if you are intensely allied to the physical and you rather resent the fact that the majority has decided to end the life of the instrument, a decision you heartily disagree with, you want to stay here, but suddenly you find yourself not here, not focused, because you can’t focus into this instrument anymore. Now you need to find another instrument to focus through. If you are still focused on the stage, say, you are so intensely focused and angry etc. that you refuse to countenance what is happening and can’t be convinced that you are no longer in the physical then you may focus into another instrument in the vain hope that, we won’t say to carry on with your life, but to experience what you still want to experience. For some that will be trying, in today’s terms, to bring closure to their experience in one fashion or another.

What we are talking about here is actually what you would term survival. Survival of interest, survival of interest in the physical environment. As the last couple of posts have intimated you can focus through other family eyes, if you want to stay within the family, family soap, shall we say, know what is going on there and keep involved in it. You can focus into another area of the same location or environment or belief system where you can join with another who has equivalent beliefs to those you had if you wish to carry on with that experience. There is every reason to be involved in the physical if you find it interesting enough and you will find a way to be involved simply by choosing another focus, another focus, another focus.

You can understand why the belief in the doctrine of reincarnation and the Karmic wheel arose. Some simply wanted to experience the physical over and over and over again and if they had the belief that is all they could experience then that is what happens. They merely focus straight back into another instrument. In most cases they do this willingly but there are few who feel themselves compelled to and there are those that find themselves momentarily displaced and another focus comes along and so they focus straight into it. As we have described before in other posts once you focus into one then the other one is completely obliterated simply because in order to operate within the physical you cannot have two streams of data coming in. You can only have the one stream of data to react to.

So, back again to your original question, yes, you can easily say that “I am the consciousness behind my genes”.

One can then move into an area that is rather contentious in this day and age and then job backwards but of course if you keep jobbing backwards you will arrive at the single point of the Big Bang and the single consciousness won’t you? Unless you think it is an infinitely dense consciousness just as the Big Bang theory supposes a one dimensional point of infinitely dense matter. So do we have a very dense consciousness and is it singular? Once you get into this area of speculation you have to say that space existed but matter didn’t because how did the universe expand if there was nothing there to expand into? One has to presume that there was something there to expand into.

So what do you say about consciousness? That consciousness was just a dense singularity sitting there which decided to create? And what have you got? You have got the old story of God haven’t you? Sitting there minding his own business, getting bored and deciding “I’ll split myself into God zillion pieces and let them all do their own thing and see what they come up with. Maybe I’ll get so involved in it that I’ll forget that I even exist”. You can take your pick, can’t you? You could say that there could be a truism in all of it. You could start from the position that there is this mass of consciousness which is totally beyond our understanding if we decide as we currently think that there is no time and no space. Do not think that we are an awful lot wiser than you are. We do know that it is all in the imagination and in our imagination we create space and as we have said before we cannot get outside ourselves any more than you can. We only see what is reflected back to us, what we see, in what you would call, our imagination, the thoughts that float by. We simply cannot get to a point where we can observe ourselves observing.

Have we given you some idea of the part genes play in the production of the physical environment?

I think so, thank you.

As you are aware, genes are present in everything that you see. You may not feel that genes are present in grains of sand, but then you didn’t discover genes until the last century or so, so what will you discover within the grain of sand? You will certainly discover the same miniature forces going into and out of existence as there is with anything else and you may then say, ”Well that’s probably the consciousness bit, each one of these” and of course that is where we get quantum entanglement and the universal interconnection. From there we just go around in a circular argument because even though we understand it all you come back to the fact that you are having this experience and it is a product of all this and does it really matter where it comes from?

Does it matter where the thoughts come from? No. At the end of the day all that matters is “I feel good, this is interesting”, it’s nice to know some of this stuff. And do I feel secure in that my conscious experience will carry on? Yes. Will I still fear dying? Probably, because that is part of the physical experience. Will I be able to approach my end with equanimity?”

Well, you will find out when the time comes, won’t you? But if you can keep all this information in mind and you have that firm belief that everybody is going to be there to meet you and there is going to be a great reunion then at the last moment you might say “I’m ready” as is evinced by many of those at the point of dying.

So, enjoy.

Thank you.

Understanding the Process of Ageing and Illness. The Path to Acceptance. Part II 24th February 2018

We would like to ask the majority exactly what is happening with David please.

The trouble is that I have got to think on the basis that there is no “me” and that whatever I say is the majority speaking regardless of what I consider to be “me” saying it. Just to open my mouth and let the words come out and not thinking “am I saying this?” because the words that are spoken are the product of the opinion of the majority of the participants. So when it comes to listening to what I have been saying lately then you have got to think that the majority at the moment is ambivalent as regards interest in the day-to-day activities that are currently being engaged in.         

There are, you might say, transition periods in every life where certain elements lose interest in those activities and the idea of certain things are found not to attract as many followers, shall we say, as previously, but the instrument is still fully functioning as you might say a character in a soap is fully functioning although you might be running out of playlines  for the character in the soap and you need some more playlines to be written. The alternative is to write the character out of the soap. So what happens in the main is that new plots are devised and so in the case of the instrument new activities are found. You have recently engaged in two new activities so that you can see that there is somewhat of a reformulation, a repositioning going on. But in between this loss of interest in certain aspects and gaining of interest in other aspects there is a concurrent waning and gaining of intensity, you might say, and so it may not happen in a nicely smooth manner as there is somewhat of a disturbance as you can well imagine. Sometimes the intensity lessens before the new interests gain enough adherence to get some intensity back in again.

Add to this the necessary rehabilitation, you might say, as regards the new way the instrument has to function, the convalescence necessary to get used to the new pattern of feelings, the psychological aspect which tends to be overlooked. The fact that you are now in a position where you need a machine to keep the instrument functioning which makes you realise, albeit you don’t discuss or address the situation, that without that machine you would be in a much reduced state of existence as to previously and you would therefore be rather …

Incapacitated.

As well as being aware of the fact that you are most definitely on a downhill slope. The thing about the pacemaker is that it has enabled you to do things that you were not previously able to do due to making sure that enough oxygen gets to the appropriate part of the mechanics, shall we say, to enable you to move at a pace that you were not able to move at previously.

But that doesn’t repair the underlying psychological damage. You still realise that you are merely extending the inevitable. Your intimations of mortality have been given quite a boost, shall we say, and you are now aware of the fact that although you will now carry on quite well that you may need to change your behaviour somewhat. Not expect to be an all energy, all singing, all dancing instrument. As we intimated before you will be able to lead a comfortable life and maybe you need to address this fact as to what exactly you will conceive to be a comfortable life. That may not be the Jack-in-the-box that you have previously been used to. You have to be able to follow what we called the path to acceptance.

You can be around, you can enjoy certain things but you mustn’t constantly bemoan the fact that you no longer feel to be a ball of energy. You can do this, you can do that, you can do the other pursuant to the knowledge that you can no longer be that young person in an old body. The old body doesn’t want to act, the energy needed to propel it about its business is not so readily available. It is not just the heart, there are many other aspects as well. You have many more organs, many more glands, many more other suppliers of the necessary energy precursors that are no longer working to the capacity they used to. You simply have to get used to the idea that life has got to be lived at a slower pace and actually enjoy it.

As you look at the fact that you now get up and read the news on the internet think what your parents used to do. They used to get up fetch the morning paper and sit down and read it leisurely over breakfast, yes?

Yes.

So now instead of getting up and immediately dashing to make breakfast, there is no need to do that except on the days that you are going out. There is no need to have breakfast at seven if you get up at 6.30 and you haven’t got to go anywhere, in fact you are doing yourself a disservice. You are starting the engine up far too early, you are not giving it any rest and then you expect to keep going the rest of the day whereas you maybe ease into the day then get the breakfast, enjoy it slowly and then contemplate what to do for the rest of the day.

You have got other people around you who do not even get up until 9.30 or 10.00 and they are not all going to bed until 2am either. They are taking life at a different pace, everybody takes life at a different pace. You have chosen to take life at a far greater pace than most and now the time isn’t appropriate. You are within the last, let us say, 15% of your lifetime. Now if you applied that to any other mechanism that you know of would you expect it to be going at the same rate as it would do in the first 15% of its lifetime?

No.

No, you would say it has had wear and tear and what would you say as regards ideas and interests? Have people got the same interests at your age as they had at 20? Few and far between. Mostly they have moved on. If they have been doing it for a long time they have had so much experience of it that there is no longer anything that is new and exciting. There is a certain satisfaction, a certain amount of enjoyment. Where is your enjoyment in the singing and dancing coming from? You are going to singing and dancing that are products of your youth, most of your songs that you sing and dance to come from what era? They don’t come from this era. Do you get excited about them? No! They are comfortable. They are like old..

Gloves.

Gloves, cardigans, things that you put on, much loved items of comfort, well worn, that you’re used to. They’re not new things. You might find some interest in learning a new dance, but it is danced to the old music and the old steps, it is a variation on a theme. If you wish to enjoy that variation and find excitement from it then so be it, if you don’t and you recognise it for what it is and it doesn’t enthuse you then don’t worry that it doesn’t enthuse you. You simply see it in a different fashion.

If other things are of interest then take them up. Temporarily you’re finding yourself not inclined to travel, but when you do maybe go to somewhere new or that you haven’t visited for a long time because even if you may not be quite as comfortable as going back to the places you have previously been going to, there will be that element of surprise as to how things may have changed or remembering a scene you had forgotten. There may be new restaurants, new buildings, a golf course you haven’t played for 10 years, an element of rediscovery. It will be more of an interest to go to somewhere different.

There is more than one reason to do that and then maybe you will find you ease more because you will be doing something you have done many times before. It will be familiar, it will be something you will have to get ready for so you have to use energy and that alone will stimulate various aspects. Meanwhile just realise that you are going through a transition.  Transition periods are never easy. When you move to a new area how many times is it new and exciting and how many times is it  ”I miss the old”? So you have the elements of transition there. The element of “I wish I was back where we came from but on the other hand I know this was the right thing to do”.

Now apply that to your transition. Except for the fact that instead of choosing the transition, which of course you have done from another angle, you are now going to experience the transition you have chosen to experience. So perhaps take more of the observer status out of this, step back and see what it is that is happening to you. Remember that every word that is being spoken at the moment is the product of all those who are undergoing this experience at the moment. So simply by doing this everybody is receiving a counselling session to clear their mind and to understand what it is they are currently undergoing. Do you see?

Yes.

Now you can apply this to saying this is the teachers coming in or you can say that there are some of those who are part of the majority who have spoken up and others are listening because the discussion is going on. Meanwhile we are saying well let’s listen to the discussion because when we all have to focus on the production of the spoken word then we all have to listen as well. Whereas if we just let thoughts flash between us then we don’t get the confluence. Can you understand that?

Yes.

Because you cannot see clearly. In other words the voting hasn’t occurred, it is still the babel of the houses of parliament and until you vote you don’t know what it is the policy is going to be. You don’t fully understand the situation either. Until the debate has occurred, the debate is a precursor to the vote, then minds cannot be cleared. All the time the talk is going on in the parliamentary bars and lounges nobody is quite aware of the whole picture but when you get into the chamber and get to hear both sides of the argument gradually this clears the mind of the non-essential and the bones of the matter begin to become apparent. It is only then that you can decide whether you are going to vote for or against this motion, because now you understand.

By doing what we are doing right at this moment the majority is starting to understand and we can only hope now that when they go back into the lounges and the bars, shall we say for the purposes of allegory, then they will conclude that “Yes, we have just got to sit back and wait for the dust to settle”, shall we say, or the emulsion to separate. Yes?

Yes.

And all will become clear over the passage of time.

If You Wish to Continue Experiencing the Familiar Life of Your Family and Friends After You Leave the Body You Can! 19th February 2018

We can live many lives at any one time so if an individual awareness, who is living many lives, returns to its “source” from more than one existence at approximately the same time how much do the experiences and attitudes gained from each experience, each life, influence each other? Particularly if they are diametrically opposite.

Imagine if you go to, let us say, the road construction public meeting and there are many angry people, you may be one of them? Imagine your feelings as you leave the meeting. You then go to one of your dances, say, you are greeted with warmth and smiles and you find your focus and feelings entirely changed. You have just experienced two opposite sets of feelings, yes?

Yes.

Now don’t you compartmentalise those? You don’t put one set of feelings against the other, do you? You wouldn’t find it easy to recap the events of the road meeting using your dance feelings and vice versa. So you are able to absorb both sets of feelings but you keep them separate. Now what have they been? Within let’s say a day has the intensity of feeling worn off? From both meetings?

Yes.

Which set of feelings would you possibly retain more?

Hopefully the pleasant one more.

Quite likely. Unless the other one is revivified by a further focus. But let us say you have left that subject. So once you have left it you basically put it behind you don’t you? You don’t want to revisit it. So you forget it.  Whereas the dance experience may be recalled with pleasure. Now apply that to your question.

So what about beliefs in these lives? For example, in one you are a deeply committed Christian and in another an atheist. This is the same individual awareness experiencing these lives. What happens when you return to where you came from with those two totally different beliefs?

You soon realise that each one is an experience, a focus, a play. Now if you had been watching a play and got lost in the drama and even identified with one of the characters to a certain extent e.g. the atheist, now (you have switched focus) you will look at that with a different eye because remember you have been having lots of focuses and so as you are forever becoming those lots of focuses will have given you a certain amount, actually unlimited, of experience and an ability to put things in perspective. Basically you have done it all before, even though with no time you can say you were doing it all simultaneously but as we have explained before that no time is more the fact that there is no such thing as past or future because all is always available but that doesn’t mean to say that you are focusing on the same things all the time does it?

No.

So you will be able to put it all in perspective. Now if you have found that you have become a committed Christian while you’ve been here, the minute you leave you are looking from a distance, you are at the back of the stage say, but even more so because you are not even in the theatre any more. Yes?

Yes.

So you look and “well that was interesting, so that is what it feels like to be a committed Christian”.

Yes.

But what does this actually mean? “Well, there is no religion, there is no need for religion. There is no need to believe in this person or that person because we all just simply are”.

This is indicative of what happens in the physical environment. Once you detach yourself from the observer status then you can get lost in a belief system that feels real to you but the minute you step back outside that belief system the unreality of it all becomes perfectly apparent and so, like anything else, you are able to merely put it aside. “That was an interesting experience”.

And you can discuss this experience with various others of course. “What did you think of that?  “Yes, it is amazing”. But it becomes quite academic. Can you imagine the conversations going on, “How did you feel?” “How did you feel?” And then you’re going to get the one who says “Well I suspected it couldn’t quite be right, you know”.  And another might say “I was absolutely convinced I was going to be met by Jesus and I was really quite surprised when Mum and Dad turned up but I couldn’t actually say that I wasn’t most pleased to see Mum and Dad and I realised very quickly that we all survive”.

As soon as you find out that everything that you are creating is due to your own intentions to create X, Y and Z, and it happens, then you quickly realise that your life (existence?) is not bound up by the intentions of some God figure.

So how much in the way of attitudes, experiences etc. actually return with the individual awareness? Or can they only be recreated with the multitude of awarenesses that have conglomerated in the life experience?

You take from each what you wish to take from each. When you were having the physical experience you were sometimes in doubt as to which decision to make. That was an attitude towards something, wasn’t it?

Yes.

Toward one side or the other. Now how much do those attitudes apply to your new environment? Take for example the committed Christian situation. Let us say that Mum and Dad were committed Christians as well. They might say “We’ve learned it isn’t quite as we thought, this is how it works, let us show you”. And they demonstrate. Are you going to believe it as it happens in front of your eyes? And so committed Christianity just dissipates away. (Non-relevant attitudes and beliefs are discarded)

So you don’t need all the other consciousnesses that have been with you in that particular life experience to have any belief, attitude, experience etc.?

We will all decide to go and watch a football match. Now let us say 20,000 people all think that going to watch X versus Y is a jolly good idea. It is all video screened and you all have touch buttons. At this particular football match there is no referee, the crowd is the referee. They are all seeing things from different angles, this sentence has a double meaning, do you understand?

Yes, yes.

They are all seeing things from different angles and so when a challenge is signalled the videos are replayed, you all look at the screen and you all press your button. Now depending from which angle you are watching you could say yes or no couldn’t you? From one angle it looks like a foul from another it doesn’t, bias is in there as well. You may agree or not agree with what has happened. But when the game is over you have experienced the democratic result of 20,000 different points of view and it is up to you whether you say “that was pretty good, I’m happy with the result, it seemed quite fair” or “we wuz robbed”. Now if you saw it as fair you would say “well that’s that, no big deal”.

So you participated, you made decisions faced with actions that have occurred. Now then take that as your individual faced with various actions in various circumstances for which decisions are required but you are one of a number (of participants) 20,000 say or 20, 000,000, who knows, depending on how attractive your particular gestalt is. You go with the decisions that are made.

Yes.

And so,  ”it’s been an interesting exercise”.

Yes.

Now let us say that your particular gestalt has been married to another particular gestalt and you have developed a really good feeling of love. Now when you go over and the other gestalt hasn’t come over then you will probably still have the desire to see that particular person.

Agreed.

Now you do not need to get together with another number of awarenesses in the (your previous) gestalt in order to see that person because you are not creating anything. You do not need a gestalt any more, the gestalt was necessary for the creation of the instrument. You can simply tune into the thoughts, you can tune into the senses. If you think of telepathic transfer of sight pictures, which you have seen credible evidence of on your television programmes, what is being transmitted? The picture being seen by one gestalt is being transmitted to another but wouldn’t you say that each awareness comprising the gestalt is seeing the same picture? Gestalt “A” is going to telepath a picture, seeing a mountain and it has the intention to transfer that picture to gestalt ”B”. Would you say that all the participants in each gestalt see the picture, for the purposes of this explanation let us assume that the picture is transmitted perfectly?

Yes.

So each one is able to see the sensory perceptions of another?

Yes.

So what we are saying is that you as an individual awareness upon leaving the physical are still able to tune in to the sensory perceptions of the object gestalt. Do you understand? The transmission is still there, you didn’t need a physical instrument to pick up the transmission?

No.

The transmission was being made from the instrument seeing the picture but you do not need all the individual awarenesses within the gestalt to do that, any individual awareness can broadcast what it sees i.e. transmit the picture. The picture being seen is like an idea, it is floating out there and so it is whether you wish to focus in upon it.

Thank you.

(We can assume that the brain and mind are continuously transmitting to the individual consciousnesses/awarenesses and majority instructions are being transmitted back.  Broadcasts that can be tuned into by third parties)

So in, what we call, the next life all the awarenesses that are returning, changing focus, what percentage of that would be from the physical and what percentage would be from other types of existences?

How many people, in terms of physical instruments here, lead fairly narrow lives and how many lead very interesting and diverse lives? Understand?

Yes.

So when it comes to bringing stuff back, we work on the same basis, how many lives are you focused into? It is up to each individual awareness. Let us take the football fan once more, we will stay with this analogy. There is one person who is only interested in Manchester United and that is the only game he looks up, he bothers to watch, he is not interested in any other teams. Does he switch on when Hull are playing Southampton?

No.

He is not interested, he doesn’t bother. Now someone who is passionate about football regardless, just loves watching football, is likely to switch on any football game rather than some other programme. So imagine the tennis, which you have just watched; how many people have only watched one person play?

Very few.

Most are interested in the competition. They will have their favourite but they will also be interested in who their favourite is likely to play and if, like our football fan, they just love watching good tennis then they will view many games, many players. When their favourite is playing the excitement and tension will be high but although that may be missing when watching other matches the skill and effort displayed will still be appreciated.

Yes.

At the end of it all, after waking up and finding out who had won the men’s, did it really enter your mind, other than passing, who had won the women’s?

No.

Experience over. You are now back in your home environment. When the next tournament comes up, if it is on your television, will you want to watch parts of that?

Yes.

Another experience.

What I am trying to determine, I was asking about other forms of life other than the physical.

We have been through this before. You cannot imagine yourself as bodiless. We will return to an example we have given you before, sliding up and down rainbows of coloured light, feeling the motion, hearing the music, absolutely blissed out, totally unaware of time. Now, you will think of, what we might term the G-force, the feeling of ascending and descending and the sound rising and falling.  To give you some idea of this; if, wearing your virtual reality visor you find yourself on a rollercoaster and you are suddenly faced with a steep drop what will be your initial reaction?

Fear.

Fear! And will you feel the drop as you go down?

Yes.

But is it real?

No.

It’s imagined.

Yes.

And it’s imagined because of your memory of that. So you look downwards upon a steep drop and then as you look upwards you will expect to slow down and of course you do. So your expectation is creating your feeling?

Yes.

This applies across the board.

 (And as any medium knows those same physical sensations can be experienced as a result of receiving them from a “departed” sender. Conversely the “departed” can experience our physical and mental feelings should they wish to focus in. A consequence of “quantum entanglement” or more simply “interconnected consciousness” operating in a constant state of potential telepathic communication. As explained in a previous post, you can never be separated from those you love. Now you can understand why we are encouraged not to let grief consume us in sadness as when they tune in to see how we are faring they are subjected to our feelings. How much better to try to keep upbeat and enjoying life so that those tuning in pick up those feelings and can be at peace regarding our mental condition whilst they await us joining them. P.S. This knowledge can be of inestimable comfort to the newly bereaved and if able to be put into practice the newly departed also so we would ask that if you know of anyone who could be helped by this understanding to please forward this post to them.)

Please reiterate that part of your question and we will try to expand some more.

I was just asking about other realities that’s all.

This is the point we were trying to make. We were describing sliding up and down the coloured rainbow and then we switched to the rollercoaster; now match the two up. You will imagine the feeling of sliding up and down. You will be happy in that feeling, there won’t be the fear, you will just enjoy the feeling.

Yes.

You not only create your physical reality, you create your feelings, you create everything. You create your attitudes. Attitudes aren’t thrust upon you, you create your attitudes. Fear isn’t thrust upon you….

I would imagine that your attitudes develop throughout what I would call a lifetime and your attitudes change throughout a lifetime.

You don’t imagine that, you are fully aware of that as you experience different things in different places.

Yes.

We once took you through the business of walking into somewhere and opening a door to find somebody firing bullets at you; you quickly slammed the door and then realised there were no bullet holes. The next door was an attacking cobra which you recoiled from but after several more of these you opened the doors with perfect equanimity. You knew that you were going to be confronted by something but it wasn’t real. Apply this to your imaginations. So you are going to imagine a wonderful feeling for example. You are going to imagine beautiful music. In the physical your imagination does not result in perfect pictures or beautiful sounds, you can only base them on memories of the same which are relatively indistinct, but imagine, as we have said in a previous example, that when the telepathic picture comes to you of the café overlooking the Mediterranean it comes to you as a reality as you are not self- entrammelled with the filters of the physical. So it comes to you actually crystal clear and then it is real. What you would term real. It comes in crystal clear.

 ( So just as our thoughts create our realities they are picked up as realities i.e. as we scan the thoughts we are actually scanning the realities which we then decide whether we wish to find out more so we focus on the thought/reality and find ourselves experiencing it. This is why those newly passed over find they have to stay focused on their desired  object/environment as if they let their mind wander they find themselves experiencing successive realities.)   It may be worthwhile  reading a previous post “All Worlds are Thought Worlds”

Well so does the music. If you take sound the only reason you have sound in the physical is because you have pressure waves that impinge upon the ear. Would you not think that sound exists apart from that?

Yes.

So what is the sound of the pressure wave?

It is a vibration, isn’t it?

And you have to convert that vibration to a particular sound. Now when you convert that vibration to a particular sound what is actually hearing? The awarenesses, the consciousnesses focused upon the instrument. The consciousness is actually hearing but with what?

In the physical it is through the ear and the brain.. um..

But the awareness is non-physical, what is it hearing with? You have no idea.

Obviously, because if the human body is made up of X consciousnesses the individual consciousness would just be a minute part of that anyway.

It is not a question of size because when it comes to the imagination the smallest thing can imagine as much as the biggest thing in terms of any particular aspect.

Yes, I would agree with that.

When it comes to multitudinous activities, as in a tapestry for example, then it becomes more difficult and therefore more are involved. One may have detailed out in their imagination their café while another has detailed out their football field and the players upon it. (We must assume that many and various awarenesses then focus in on the player/ instrument of their choice and commence the game according to the agreed rules). So you have all these different ideas/scenarios/ realities floating about and you just focus in on whichever one (or more) that attracts you. Not really any different from the physical, as above so below. You have all these activities going on in the physical and you decide which ones you are going to focus into.

Yes.

Same as your television. If you have 400 channels to choose from which one are you going to look at?  Remember, each one is simply moving waves that move through the atmosphere with no sound or light until they are turned into sound and light by the instrument, i.e. the television, and then your own instrument then turns that sound and light via your eyes and hearing into what you hear and see and then when it comes to the awarenesses I am afraid we will have to leave it there as even if we knew it would be impossible to describe to you because it is totally non-physical.

Yes. Thank you.

All is imagination. Now the word has its connotations. Whenever you think of imagining you think of some sort of hazy picture in the mind which you can think of and get some vague idea of what it is that you are trying to do but that is generally always in the context of something already existing and so therefore you have to go to pencil and paper or computer and try to sketch out what it is that you are thinking of.

Yes.

Then you have to refine the idea, put in measurements etc. If you are technically capable you can then run your design through a computer and see if it works and if it does the next step is to make a model or simply construct from your design. Now depending on how speculative or futuristic your design is in respect to those already in existence it may be that the stresses and strains produced by your designs require materials that do not exist. For example, you could imagine this enormous plane and then find that in order to get that payload off the ground you would need wings of a certain size but the materials available to build those wings would not be able to withstand the stresses placed upon them by the turbulence to be met in normal flying. Everything in the physical has its natural limits. You could not have an aeroplane with a kilometre wide wingspan with your present materials.

So in order to try to give you some ideas we can only put across analogies that you can understand and these analogies are limited by the parameters of the physical environment. When you talk about sight you are talking about looking through eyes at a light reflecting or light emitting object. Now if that isn’t there, how do you see? Because you can only see when light is reflected from something and that is because you are in the physical and that is how the system works. But it is quite obvious that when a telepathic picture is transmitted the receiver is not seeing light being reflected from the object and you ask what is actually happening here?  You would have to say that this would be a thought wave or an intention wave but nobody recognises these things and yet it is happening. (Trying to understand the process/mechanism that makes remote viewing possible is similarly open to speculation although quantum entanglement and non-locality give a credible answer if it is deemed that part of our awareness dwells in that domain but if we also subscribe to the interconnectedness of consciousness these processes are far more simply explained)

When you both think of the same thing at the same time, when you think of someone and the phone rings and it is that person, what has happened? The thought has gone between by what you would call “brains”, but you know that isn’t possible or think it isn’t possible. Has it gone between awarenesses which are focused upon the same thing? Now when it comes to the constituents of the gestalt your awareness of the thought coming from somebody else has come to the surface which means that the majority opinion of the gestalt has said “X is going to phone” or is thinking of phoning. Now there has to be some kind of reasonable connection there between the parties because the majority would have to be interested; how often have you heard of someone saying “That is going to be so-and-so”, a complete stranger?

Never.

Of course not because the majority of the gestalt, even though the thought is out there, would have no idea and couldn’t be bothered with it; but if there is a relationship connection of whatever affinity then yes. Most of the time the only time you will know when someone is going to phone or you know that someone is in trouble is when there is, what you would term, an attachment of care. That is because that corridor of connection is always open, the doors are always open, because you always wish to be aware.

Yes.

Let us say then for that particular person your Skype is always on and so is theirs, so when they think, i.e. press the button, you are immediately aware. Now this continues on as we have said before, once these links are forged then they continue on until they are no longer of interest or something else comes in that is of greater interest. All is forever becoming. You cannot say to yourself that you will only be associated with this person for infinity because the minute that you come back to realising that you have lots of focuses going you will ask yourself “How many people am I madly in love with?”

Yes.

It could be many and so it’s only because you are in the physical that you say “Well which one” because you think in the singular. You don’t think “Well all of them”, and there will be more and more.

You will then realise that you are in love with the image, the gestalt instrument image. You then become aware that everything is connected to everything else and that the image was merely a focus for the time. Yes?

Yes.

You then understand what unconditional love is. It is not conditional upon a physical instrument. That was just in the play, the constructed experience, and outside of that everybody cooperates and so there is no marriage or other restrictive arrangement. There is just love and peace to all, you might say. You are content just to be and to experience and to move from one experience to another and you are all doing it.

Thank you.

You are correct in your earlier conversation that when you turn your focus away from the physical body there will be a short or maybe a little longer transition period to where you understand in the terms that we have just outlined.

Yes, I can well imagine.

You will be quite happy in your new knowledge and, as we have said, as to those remaining you will look back in because you have had a lot of interest, but of course you have got all your other focuses as well and, as there is no time, you will be able to tune into the experience memory and everything else bank of the particular person and so, as we have said before, you will be there all the time, you won’t miss a thing. It won’t be a case of “I looked in last week, what’s happening this week?” because when you look in this week you will be aware of everything that the person experienced in that past week. So to you, no time has passed, or what has, you have been aware of it all.

That’s right.

Because you will pick up what those feelings and attitudes are the instrument is currently sensing and feeling. You will pick up where they are at the present time but that will be the culmination of what they have become and as they maybe switch to a memory from a week before that memory will seem as natural to you as if you have experienced the actual event because you are experiencing the same memory. Do you understand?

Yes, no problem.

So effectively when you enjoin, conjoin, focus into the mind of the instrument then you are part of that mind in the same way that you are part of the instrument that you are currently experiencing the physical through. Yes?

Yes.

It is just a question of tuning in.

And when you have read this over several times you may feel a certain sense of security and peace. 

Please feel free to forward this post to anyone you think may benefit especially those who are grieving the loss of a loved one.

 

 

 

( So just as our thoughts create our realities they are picked up as realities i.e. as we scan the thoughts we are actually scanning the realities which we then decide whether we wish to find out more so we focus on the thought/reality and find ourselves experiencing it. This is why those newly passed over find they have to stay focused on their desired  object/environment as if they let their mind wander they find themselves experiencing successive realities.)      maybe put this comment in all worlds are thought worlds and put a link to that post

Quantum Entanglement, Non-Locality and Interconnected Consciousness. 6th February 2018

All verify that you are eternally connected to those you love.

Rosenblum and Kuttner: “In principle…any two objects that have ever interacted are forever entangled.  The behaviour of one instantaneously influences the other.  An entanglement exists even if the interaction is through each of the objects having interacted with a third object.  In principle, our world has a universal connectedness.”

When quantum particles are entangled they cannot be described individually. They form a single quantum object even though they may be located far apart.

Is there any further information that you can give us that possibly we might not understand but somebody accessing the website might understand?

You will have realised from your own searches into the current theories and philosophies that are propounded at the present time and from your membership of the Scientific and Medical Network that the information we have provided so far is what you might call at the outer limits of conjecture as regards the general attachment to the notion of self. Even though we feel that the process as we have described it is quite readily understandable there is a reluctance on the part of most to, if you would like to say the word, “accept” that it is a question of even understanding the idea of acceptance after a lifetime’s believing wholeheartedly in the fact that you are singularly responsible for your thoughts and actions. Even though you may wonder where your thoughts come from you still believe that your actions derive solely from your own decisions; that you make your own minds up albeit influenced by others and by circumstance. Even so you believe that when it comes to the crux that the sole responsibility for a particular decision rests with yourself.

Now to have to give up that control and simply sit back and wait for the decision to come to you takes some understanding because you will still feel that “Ah, I think I’ll do this”.

What is happening? You are responding to what you might call the mass decision, the majority of the mass of consciousness that is, at that time, focused on, what you might call, your particular instrument or identity and its position in its surroundings. So it would be quite difficult for you to stand aside and see a decision made from taking an objective point of view because you are part of the decision making process. The nearest you can get to this particular position is feeling that you have to do something, that this decision to a certain degree is being forced upon me. “I’d rather not do it, but I simply have to do it because I can’t see that there is any other action I can possibly take”. You will blame that on various factors, relationships, circumstance and other strictures but you are unlikely to think to yourself “Well, it’s simply the fact that the majority want to do something else, they don’t see it the same way as I do’.

So you will still take them (decisions made) as your own because really the decision is your own in that you will go along with the thought even though you don’t wish to. Because what is the alternative? The alternative is to switch focus and to do that you will leave the present focus into the physical. Now, of course, you can take the attitude “Well, I’ll sleep on it and so I’ll make no decision and see how I feel in the morning”. Can you speculate yourself as to what might happen during the intervening hours when you are no longer focused into the physical as we previously told you? Would you care to give an opinion on that?

Interaction with other consciousnesses which could give you an answer.

Certainly change your opinion or show you alternatives but point out that “this is the best way” or simply, “we know that may be the best way but we are quite interested in trying this other avenue”. Yes?

Yes.

So your indecision may last for some time but if the overall life of the instrument still holds its attraction then you will stay with it. You will decide that it may be interesting to see what would happen if that course was followed. Normally I would do this but what would happen if I did that?

Yes.

So this is the tough part about taking you any further because in order for you to understand more you would need to understand the feeling of the intensity of thought and the flow of thought and you are really not in a position to do that. You have to be in the world of thought in order to do this, to be aware of all the thoughts that are out there. At the moment you are only aware of the thought as produced by the confluence of thought, shall we say, the thoughts that emerged to which there is a consensus agreement. You are not aware of the multitude of thoughts that goes into that. This is one difficulty.

Now when it comes down to other aspects, as you have seen various scenarios propounded, in the “simulation” hypothesis for example, what is imagination but a simulation?

Yes.

Except for the fact that the imagination is, shall we say, somewhat spontaneous. Spontaneous within prescribed parameters, a certain framework into which you have to operate, in that you can’t expect to operate as if you were at sea if you are on land. Different procedures may be necessary. So you could easily say that simulation could marry up with imagination and the same goes for virtual realities. It makes sense to imagine that somewhere you are wearing a virtual helmet, watching a virtual screen.  After all, what is it inside your head but a virtual screen? You have no idea. We may just as well say that what you are looking at is this, to make it easy for you, sea of moving waves, this 2 dimensional surround of “pixels” and wherever you look then what you see is the mass imagination, the majority imagination.

We are now moving into an area which is slightly different. We have touched upon this before when we were talking about a leader going along and as they do the imagining then you pick up on that imagining and accept it and go with it. See the large mountain on the right, yes, see the small mountain on the left, yes, and so you gradually set your environment up as you go along. We have said the same thing about the shoals of fish and the flocks of birds in that one sends a thought out, the others instantly get the thought and so instantly turn left, right or whatever.

Have you thought in terms of the fact that these flocks of birds or shoals of fish, in regards to gestalt consciousness, are all involved in the decision making? It is not just the leader saying “here’s a picture, go left, go right”, it’s the whole lot simply because of the speed, actually it is instantaneous but that is beyond your present comprehension. (The concepts of quantum entanglement and non-locality are the nearest equivalents to instantaneous communication). Everybody gets to say go left or go right and of course in the speed of things when it comes to say shoals of fish evading predators then that may be panic stations, resulting in left and right being yelled out all over the place. Whereas with flocks of birds do you notice the fact that the movement of flocks of birds is quite graceful. Now why would they do that do you think? The feeling of their movement against the air, would it be enjoyable?

I would imagine so.

If they were stopping and starting, dropping like a stone and having to start up again. You don’t see that do you? You see long graceful movements in the main. Maybe some turns. Pilots involved in acrobatic displays do the same thing, they do manoeuvres and loop the loops, rolls etc. but it all shows control and a certain pleasure in executing a manoeuvre as far as the birds are concerned and to a degree the fish when they are not being pursued may take pleasure in performing rhythmic movements much as you do when you are dancing or Tai Chi or whatever. But then you are entering into a mass agreement because the mass may decide in its imagination that it wishes to experience x, y and z. Once you think of the fact that even though we said before that there are different gestalts of consciousness, which indeed there are, doing their own thing, then due to the interconnectedness of consciousness there will be contact between all consciousness.

Just consider that all are aware of everything that is likely to happen (this would account for premonitions) because if they care to survey the “ocean of thought”, shall we say, much as you go to the internet and look at the world news, then you decide which interests you and which doesn’t interest you. When you are aware that an earthquake or hurricane or some other disaster is imminent, even say the plane or ship you intend to travel on or the turning you were going to take, you are aware of the likelihood of the outcome of taking said action and taking alternative actions because all probabilities are weighed and explored in one fashion or another. That doesn’t mean to say that all are experienced but one can certainly extrapolate them to their likely outcome and then you, your gestalt that is, can decide whether you wish to take the instrument into that particular environment with the knowledge that it may not come out of it or in other cases it definitely will not come out of it and that will be the exit that is planned. Although from your point of view this is seemingly against the run of reason, from another point of view, in that you may also be focusing through many of the gestalts that comprise your family and acquaintances etc., you will still be fully aware and fully focused into the physical but simply through different eyes. You actually don’t lose anything particular except a certain point of view from the one instrument no longer around, but you are still surrounded by the same environment and people except for the one. (Perhaps this is where the proposition arose that we are all one another )

Now if you had been focusing through all these, you obviously would not be aware of it, you can easily see that losing the focus through one wouldn’t be a big deal. Would you agree?

Yes.

You may miss out on a few experiences but in general the experiences will still be yours to enjoy.

We have covered a small part of an area into which you can look further. Whether it will have any practical value to you other than theoretical projection it is up to you to decide because what you have learned so far has given you a certain amount of peace in knowing that there is no question that you will survive the end of the physical body but you understandably would like to know more about your own physical trials and tribulations prior to your intended departure and also as to when that is likely to be. Of course this is all purely looked at from the point of view of the focus into the physical, because in order to take on the viewpoint the individual consciousness focuses into the gestalt and then one has to simply go with the flow and accept what goes on and just live one day at a time. That has got to be the goal of all those who wish to relieve themselves of worry and anxiety about the future. Simply wake up in the morning and “what shall we fill today with?” Put on one side the fact that this may or may not happen.

Now David likes to be in control of the day-to-day and the future. What is the point of buying this plant if I am uncertain as to whether I will see it mature? But if he took a moment to think about it then he would still see it wouldn’t he? (This puts another meaning into “the futurity of present decision”).

As we have just said, through somebody else’s eyes or simply by just focusing in. So how do you feel about those back in Europe who planted vast estates with no likelihood, from the physical point of view, of ever seeing them to maturity? Did they somehow know or did the gestalt know, and of course it did, they would see the end result of their efforts even though they may not be seeing it through one particular instruments eyes. For those who seemingly plan for developments outside their projected lifescale you must think to yourself that the consciousnesses doing this are involved in creation that by nature of the physical takes longer than the human lifetime. So why not? Why should you limit yourself to a human lifetime when it is only a focus through an instrument?

Now, you sit back and think to yourself “well I’m going to focus through several sequential instruments”. Yes?

Yes.

Even though some of those may be alive at the same time. For example, you could be focused through several instruments, all of different ages, all in the same location and all aware of their environment. For you, your sequentiality of experience can be to you, provided you see it from that angle, basically unbroken. You can be looking at it through the eyes of the grandfather. The father is an adult as well, you can be looking through those eyes. The son is reaching adulthood as well and has memories of his childhood and so we go on. You don’t have to stay in the family line either.

You can be the tree.

You can even be the tree if you wish, yes.

If you are part of the person who is doing the planting and you wish to be part of the environment, you could give the instrument the idea of planting. It doesn’t matter whether it is for his lifetime because it is for your (planned) lifetime(s).

You make a good point in that it is possible that a group of trees may want to arrange themselves in a certain order. Now we could come back to another area of your previous mythology, you might say, that the god Pan is responsible for the flora.

I’m not aware of that, I don’t remember.

Let us look at gestalts which are not focused through physical eyes and are simply wishing to design the beautiful vista, shall we say. But in order to design that particular vista, yes, they can have it in the imagination like everything else but you all can work in different ways. You can draw or paint a vase or you can actually make a vase, two different experiences, different sensations and satisfactions. Painting a vase is more akin to an observer status but actually fashioning it and feeling the clay forming in your hands is being fully involved although you won’t be aware of the finished product until it is finished any more than you are until you make the final brushstroke on your painting. Different dimensional experiences, the virtual, the 2 dimensional and the 3 dimensional aspects of the actual vase.

If you wish to experience all three dimensions then you have to use different levels of involvement, different focuses and work with different numbers of participating consciousnesses according to the dimension you wish to create in.

So although you may be focused into a tree gestalt you may still need another gestalt, be it a human or an animal to plant these acorns, shall we say, so that in 150 years time say you have this wonderful avenue of oak trees. It is very unlikely that you would use a squirrel to bury these to the desired pattern so you would give the idea to an instrument that understands measurement. You can see that interaction and cooperation is necessary to co-create. One can never understand where the thought first arose. It is basically impossible to determine which consciousness produced the thought because that consciousness didn’t know where the thought came from either. How can you claim ownership when you are noticing thoughts all the time, from everywhere? How do you know whether your thought is original or not, you simply don’t. All get used to the idea in the end. It doesn’t matter where it came from, it looks interesting and I think I’ll follow it along because it looks like it could be an interesting experience.

This is one area worthy of further thought, trying to understand your own position in this web of interconnectedness and seeing the various avenues that are open to you.

You are getting to the edge now where you will need to experiment and have at least a mental experience of the maybe. We can use words and words and words but nothing in the end is going to substitute for your understanding through deduction and experience.

We suggest that you listen to this over again and see what major points you can take on board and we will revisit this at a later time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Locus of Decision Making. December 31st 2017

Could you give some insight into the relationships which exist between the brain and what we term  the mind and the controlling consciousnesses? The flow of sensory information and the analysis of same and the subsequent process and location of decision resulting in intention and action?

So let us take any form of large organisation within the physical. A large corporation, an Army, a government department or even an organised large social event. You have layers of responsibility which generally take the form of a pyramid. You have those at the bottom who usually have a simple routine task to perform, they are chosen for and are content to execute their responsibility and know at each time that their action is correct. They do not have any uncertainty as to their duty as their decisions and actions largely follow a prescribed procedure which they can follow in the knowledge that what they are doing is correct. So you may as well say they are “programmed” to carry out their function.

Then you get the next level up where there are those who are instructing the ones below. At that level they too have their own set of rules and their own set of reactions to anything slightly untoward that comes up from the first layer. Now if it is something that is totally out of the ordinary what do they do? They refer it to the next layer, and so on and so on.

So take your physical instrument, take all the activities that go on within the body and see the coordinating sensors (centres?). You see, and you are well aware of this one, that the heart is absolutely necessary and it receives instructions to beat fast, slow or whatever is required. It receives those instructions from a certain area and you have yet to find out where those instructions come from in terms of the brain, but would you say that most of these are basically programmed reactions? Yes. So when a demand comes in there is, what you would term, an automatic reaction to satisfy that demand. Now this would be the same whether it is a demand for oxygen or adrenalin to provide instant energy, fight or flight whatever. You can work your way up to the conclusion that most of the physical body is indeed, as many in the medical profession look upon it, a form of machine as the process by which things are carried out can be established.

When it comes to looking at it in that fashion then you have to think to yourself that “this machine was built” and its operating system was built as well. Now most operating systems work because of the programs that have been inserted and the fact that the decision making pathways are established. You can see this in all large organisations where things are passed up the line until a decision is handed down. As an example, you could look down and think “I could jump off this one foot chair” and not even think about it, just do it. But put that up to three feet and what happens then? Then you stop. Now is that decision being referred up? Because why have you stopped? Because there is uncertainty.

Uncertainty and fear.

Correct. But the uncertainty and fear arises because you are waiting for a decision as to whether or not to do it. Where is that decision being made? You think that you are thinking about it, “shall I, shan’t I”? So, as regards the majorities, is there a consensus? At that point?

No. The decision is before everybody.

Yes. So there is a part of the gestalt saying “yes, we can do this” and another part saying “No, I don’t think we can”. The debate is going on at that stage. Yes?

Yes.

So where do you think that is going on?…………………We’ll answer this. First of all you say that the brain can look at the past history of jumping off a three foot tall and it can think that, “yes, I have been able to do this in the past” but lately, especially as you get older, it is not quite so easy and you don’t land as lightly as before. So let us go back over, because everything is stored, and you think of all the things that may be relevant. You look at what you are going to land on, “am I going to land on concrete”? Now you wouldn’t think at all about jumping off three foot into water, would you?

No.

And you wouldn’t worry too much about jumping into a pile of hay. But faced with jumping onto concrete you would stop and think. You would be going through the options. Same thing applies. Where it comes up that, “that would be safe” it is because we can basically calculate the impact force and decide “yes, we can handle that”. But when it comes to the concrete then one has to say “well someone has to make a decision here, do we do it or don’t we do it”. Now of course other possible routes of descent are explored, “can we climb down”? But what if that is not possible, then we have got to do it haven’t we?

So the majority says, “well, we can’t stand here all day, let’s do it” and the rest say “well on your head be it” and so you do it. Generally you will survive quite adequately, another time you might hurt your foot. Another experience undergone.

This is all very well for the physical but what happens when you are looking at a complete change of lifestyle, shall we say, a major decision which may need to be made on the basis of values, emotional values, satisfaction values etc. Would you think that is a province of the brain as the brain is a physical instrument?

No. It would be a consideration for the mind.

Correct. It would not be as the brain is part of the physical instrument. Now the mind is a language construct, really, for your understanding. These are not discrete and separate entities. The whole thing is seamless and interconnected but from the point of view of your understanding it is easier for you to think that the mind is separate as such. You can view them as totally interconnected but decision making is done at different levels. You must remember that the same energetic makeup prevails whether it is physical, mental or, what you would term, the consciousness. For the purposes of this discussion let us say that they are compartmentalised.

So the mind is more concerned with the analysis and presentation of possible courses of action, shall we say. The implications of taking one path or another. The mind is mostly focused on the interaction with the brain. Interaction with the physical instrument, the physical focus. It is looking at not only what has happened to the physical but it has picked up over the years what has happened with everything it has come into contact with. So the mind is a repository of knowledge, it is where to go to dig out your facts. Let us come back to your computers once more. You could say that your computer resembles a mind. You go there to find out things. You don’t go there to have a decision made. It is used as a consultant to get information and advice to expand your knowledge and therefore it may help you in your decision making. The mind is a repository of knowledge and experience and the experience of others that you have taken on board. From that repository you can compare the likely outcome of decisions as evidenced by your own prior experience and the experience of others facing the same challenges.

Now when you reach that area of thought you will find that the constituents of the gestalt are very much involved with the mind. Most of those focused into the gestalt, due to being lost in the drama, are not aware that they are experiencing the decisions of the majority. They see themselves as the “I” so they feel that the decision is theirs to make and so these opportunities are presented and generally a course of action is decided upon. Some decisions you make are right and some are not but when you are in the moment of doing this you may make a decision where you think “well, I’m not too happy with this one but I’ll do it, I just feel I’ve got to do this”. Now what is happening here is that you are not part of the majority at that stage. The majority are deciding to do this but you are unsure, but because the thought of the majority is so strong you think it is your thought but you still feel some doubt, you are not certain but you go along with it anyway and then you may find out that it was the right thing to do after all, in which case there is a sigh of relief that you made the right decision, “I am glad that I made that decision”, but you actually didn’t. If it goes wrong, “I wish I hadn’t made that decision”. You will still take it as being your own personal aspect because that is the whole point of the physical.

If you look at all this process it is a hierarchical process except that in the end you do not have a singularity or a small board at the top. You have the whole organisation voting, all those who are interested in the overall direction of the instrument.  Those who are part of it all but who are only interested in the experience they are gaining from focusing within a particular area of the instrument may not be bothered. For example, you have your doctors and scientists here studying the body all the time, now what has been happening with these physical bodies over the millennia, they’ve changed. They have changed in shape, size and performance, so would you not credit it that those minds of your scientists and doctors are simply the minds of the consciousnesses that are interested in perfecting the instrument. It follows that the way to find out how a heart really works is to put part of your focus into the heart muscle or any other aspect of the heart operation. A greater appreciation is obtained when you become part of the action. Your doctors would, if they could, tap into a particular part of the body so that they could receive all those sensations and so understand what was going on. In general you cannot, but you can (as a consciousness) if you decide that that is your area of interest, at that stage you are not interested in what the instrument is doing or its life. You are only interested in the workings of that particular organ or whatever happens to be your focus. It is of no interest to you what is going on outside of your area of focus. You may have a focus in one or many other lives but if you find enjoyment in designing and perfecting the operation of physical instruments then as above so below.

The same applies to everything in the physical area and any other reality for that matter.

 

 

 

 

 

22nd November 2017 Understanding the Process of Ageing and Illness. The Path to Acceptance.

(Personal but applicable to all.)

Can you give us any insight into David’s health please?

The body ages and much as you would like it to carry on behaving as it always has, for every single person there comes a time when something doesn’t quite work the way it did before.

Apart from general atrophy, the wearing out of various areas, those focusing through the instrument, focusing into the gestalt, are desirous of certain experiences. If you look at the experiences that any particular instrument is basically familiar with and habitually engaged in then even those will tend to slow down with age. You will not find those who can run as fast in their seventies as they could in their forties for example and even less than in their twenties regardless of who they are. The laws, or the agreements, with regards to the physical are such that you are meant to exist here for a certain time. As we have said before if you had too many people living to 150 it would rather spoil the show wouldn’t it?

Yes.

These things change gradually and so ALL focusing into the gestalt have the belief that the instrument they are imagining will follow the norm. (One is born, matures, ages and dies.) Now as we related with the cheetah. When you decide to look at a cheetah what do you see? The patterns of all the cheetahs. What happened to the older cheetahs? So as you run through the patterns and you focus on the next pattern, and the next pattern and the next pattern what happens to the cheetah? You just follow along with the patterns, it becomes habitual. You are used to focusing on the next pattern because it is easier to focus on the pattern for your creativity than it is to start afresh all the time. Do you understand?

Yes.

You focus on the pattern and this is why cheetahs and everything else carries on in roughly the same vein. It doesn’t change, you don’t get a human with four legs because you are looking at the pattern with two legs so why would you go to the effort of creating a human with four legs? It would necessitate a whole new design to make it workable. A centaur? You wouldn’t have a normal human, it wouldn’t fit in. You couldn’t have the same events. Because you are going through the human being pattern you have your own stamp on this.

When you paint a picture you paint it on a canvas, you use the same range of paint colours. What happens there? You are limited by the brushes and paints that are available. So is everybody else. (In the case of a body presumably the available genetic material). Let us say you have a painting by numbers, what we are saying here is that you are all painting to the same pattern. You understand?

Yes.

You are going to make a painting (create/imagine a human), up comes the pattern, the human pattern we will call it. You have the same paints as everybody else but what do you do? You use them differently, so the colours are slightly different, but due to the design of the picture and the fact that you need to have something that fits in to the overall scenario you don’t produce a human with a black head, a brown body and white legs , do you? You choose one particular type and that type in general will depend on the place where you desire your experience. If you produce it in Africa you will colour your pattern in black, the racial stereotype. (Obviously if you choose white or other parents residing in Africa for your experience you will follow the available genetic pattern) You don’t get western features if you are born to an African mother from an African father because it wouldn’t be accepted, it would stand out. So if you want a trouble free life for your experience you paint your pattern to suit. Now it will be a different pattern to the one next door because as we have said before if you have a million awarenesses focused into a gestalt you won’t get the same as the next million awarenesses, will you?

No.

They will all be choosing different brushes and colours and using them in different ways but they will have to follow the overall pattern (remember the analogy is painting by numbers) and that overall pattern may restrict their use of brushes and paints so in general the colours available will be applicable to the particular location and the genetic material, heritage etc. (Remember that you are continually creating/imagining the pattern throughout your life according to your belief about the stages of life and aging, so in general the pattern will reflect that belief.)

So we come back to the same thing with the illnesses. You are running through the life, you have ideas on what you are going to do with that life. Now some may decide to max out the sensation element of that proposed life, will eat and drink their fill and not worry about the condition of the instrument. They will be primarily interested in the sensations because that is their purpose to experience and there will be little interest in athleticism etc. as their primary interest is gustatory sensations. Others are interested in mental sensations, which they find in thrill seeking or drugs say while others are interested in sexual sensations and those ones may keep their bodies in good shape, for example, as they may not be as interested in food and drink as the first category. Others may come to acquire as much knowledge as possible and again the bodily condition may not be of great importance.

When you choose your life you choose your own experiences and you will keep your vehicle in such a way as to suit. Now when it comes to David here, look back through his life, he has basically been relatively fit right up to this present time and still in most aspects is quite fit for his age but lately due to age and other things his focus has been turning to more to the cerebral, the mind with a lesser emphasis on the body. There has been a loss of interest in food and drink other than as a necessity, a loss of interest in bodily sensations and golf but a great increase in interest in cerebral interconnection and so what do you think that the awarenesses who are involved at the present time are giving priority to and therefore not keeping other aspects up to scratch, not neglecting but not working hard to keep in tip top condition? It is obvious that the mind is still extremely sharp and active but the body is starting to show signs of reduced performance and this is one thing you will have to expect unless priorities are changed.

Yes.

But if priorities are changed then what will you do. If you really wish priorities to change you will be exercising day in and day out. You will be determined to reform your muscles, expand your lungs, do lots of cardio exercise, but is there the wish to do that?

Probably not.

You see. One has to ask why there is not the wish to do that especially as with all the knowledge you have you realise that “this is not important” and also the fact that you have been there, done that, “do I need to do this anymore”? But what comes with that of course is, as the saying goes, “use it or lose it”. You cannot expect to keep your muscles strong if you don’t exercise them and that applies through the body. If you don’t have the drive to stay young and you are quite comfortable in your skin as it is then you take the attitude of “que sera sera”, “I’ll go with the flow”. Most people of a certain age do just that but there are these transition periods where you are starting to lose one aspect and you have a certain amount of anxiety but you will find that will pass and you will reach another plateau or you may say a lower level in the physical and a higher in the spiritual in terms of knowledge.

Nearly everybody goes through these transition periods. They have periods of illness which then pass. You have been through them yourself. We can focus into gestalts all over the place look at the instruments and see them all with a deficit in one area or another whether or not it is apparent. The older you get and the nearer you get to returning, the less importance is attached to keeping the vehicle running because you are already preparing whether you realise that or not. You are fully aware on another level that you plan to exit at some time. It is just the interest that keeps you going here. Provided you find yourself interested, because how you speak, how you feel, that is the majority. (of the awarenesses comprising the gestalt) You must take note of what it is that you are actually thinking, what it is that you are saying because that is the majority that you are actually experiencing. You are not controlling the majority (opinion) you are experiencing the majority.

When you argue with yourself in your mind, say. When the majority speaks the majority may find, much like Angela Merkel currently (21/11/2017) that it can no longer hold the coalition together quite so easily. It does not have that majority say 70% in harmony as to what has to happen therefore does happen.  If that majority starts to shrink as interest is lost in certain aspects by some but others keep a strong interest have you got that intensity anymore? If you don’t have the intensity you won’t have the manifestation and so you have to listen to your own feelings. Listen to your feelings, listen to your desires and realise that “this is what I am experiencing”.

Now you can say “I will go with the flow on this because I understand that I am just experiencing this” or you can voice, when I say you, you can listen to the voice of the majority and the majority will be, as we just remarked, what you would think of as talking to yourself. But what are they doing? When they express these words, these thoughts, it is the majority, however thin it has become, trying to convince the other participants, “this is what we want to do”. This is where you get the feeling of doubt. Do you understand?

Yes.

Because it is no longer certain. You did not have so many doubts when you were younger because the majority was certain it wanted to do this, it wanted to do that, but now it’s not so sure. There is a difference in the makeup of the gestalt. As you can well imagine those interested in mainline gustatory pleasures mostly removed their focus when you became vegan. Those who desire barbecued meat for example will not be involved in your gestalt, you will have lost those some time ago. Now when it comes to being vegan, if you were an awareness wanting to join a vegan, which vegan you joined would depend on the other aspects of their life. If you wished to take a full life as a vegan you would join a child who is a vegan, presumably within a vegan family or a partially vegan family. If you merely wished to temporarily sample the lifestyle any vegan may suffice.

However there are others who have had different lives but want to see…now you have a particularly, in terms of numbers, unusual mental set, shall we say, with regard to your understanding of reality. For those who have inculcated belief systems through being involved in the physical and have not bothered to investigate these other aspects of understanding, the relationship between the physical and other dimensions for example, when the channelling is going on it is an unusual occurrence and so the consciousness is vastly expanded due to the attraction of the activity and the subject matter. They can see an instrument where the majority is quiescent while there are a few who are able to hold the stage, shall we say, and not only control the instrument but address the majority due to the majority being willing to listen. We will take your thought and we will put our intensity behind it because we want to hear what comes out. We want to see the thought form and we want to see the form that the thought forms. (Imagination crystallising and the resultant manifestation) You have this constant coming and going so all we can advise is the fact that the gestalt in this particular instant is waxing and waning because it is in the process of change. It is a process of ditching old habits and finding new.

Now David, as you can see, he doesn’t understand why himself, has lost his enthusiasm for golf. Happy to do it for the exercise but no longer enthused by the prospect. It is the same with you no longer interested in learning new dances. You will learn as best you can while you are there but you most certainly would not go to lessons to perfect a new dance routine because it no longer holds your interest. So what does hold your interest? What you are doing now holds your interest. Now how long is it since either of you have looked to see who has won the weekly PGA golf competition or even who is currently No 1?  Neither of you have.

We haven’t talked about it lately.

At one stage you were following the competitions, looking at the leaderboards and interested in who was winning but gradually and imperceptibly it disappeared from the radar and you are no longer doing it. Now apply that to what we have been talking about and it’s not just David it is yourself as well. For some reason it is no longer important who is winning the golf. If you happen to see a headline, yes you will go to it because it was an old habit and that may spark “I wonder who is No.1?” But this is becoming a rarer and rarer occurrence.

Now apply that to the operation of the body. “We need to keep this in really good order” but then you don’t quite…”we’ll leave that for the moment, we’ll come back to that” and later “it’s not going quite so well but never mind, it’s doing OK and it’s going to take some effort, an effort of focus to concentrate on that aspect when there are other more interesting areas to focus upon. So you can see how the gradual change goes relatively unnoticed.

With regard to the onset of sudden debilitating infections you may wonder for example why viruses attack. You realise that bacteria form a large part of the body so it follows that there has to be law and order amongst the bacteria and all the functions that go on within the body in order to keep everything operating harmoniously but if less attention is paid to that law and order then here and there chaos ensues. If you look at, shall we say, the foot soldiers of the immune system, the police, the white blood cells, the macrophages and killer cells, what is their function? Their function is to keep order. When they see something acting out of line they eliminate it. They do that because the overall gestalt is providing the intensity of intention and encouragement, “that must be kept in order”. That aspect of the body’s operation is closely monitored and if something is amiss action is taken for that to be stimulated. The production of the necessary cells may be increased, whatever. Yes?

Yes.

When it is no longer quite so important it is let slip and then of course some things go beyond the point of no return. What you have to realise here is that each aspect of the body is its own particular set of awarenesses. Its own particular gestalts each with their own experience requirements. Just the same as you look around in your world and some people are behaving abominably as humans then others may be behaving abominably as bacteria. You still have the same attitudes, predilections for various forms of experience, we would say, rather than enjoyment. This is, with regard to the body you might say, as without so within. You understand?

Yes.

You will have to get used to the idea that you cannot keep things perfect forever. You take it for granted that your face and skin will begin to age as you grow older and even those who are very fit still show the signs of aging. Their hair loses its colour for example. That is because it isn’t important to them, they don’t believe that they can retain their hair colour but they do believe that they can keep their muscles in good shape so they focus on keeping their muscles in good shape but how does one keep their liver in good shape? Where is the advice, apart from the food and drink intake, on keeping the liver in tip top condition? Much less the pancreas, the spleen etc. The argument for the heart is exercise but you can’t exercise the pancreas can you?

No.

Or you don’t think so. So run yourself through all the various internals, look at what information is available on them and then switch to your gestalt and the awarenesses in the gestalt and where are they? On the stage. What information is available to them? The information available in the physical. They are not party to information available without the physical. They do not understand how they are creating the body. It is there and that is what they are there for, the experience.

The only thing you can really do is decide on what it is that is of importance. Decide what it is you want to do and then take the necessary action. You are taking the necessary action at the moment in order to relieve discomfort. Now take this one or two steps forward, imagine you have relieved the chest discomfort, imagine you can still walk around perfectly happily and then would you accept, albeit reluctantly, the fact that you will be able to dance at the same rate as the others at the dances you go to but you will no longer be able to, quite so easily apart from short bursts, dance in the fashion that you were able to dance a year ago because you have moved to another platform. For reasons you are not aware of but you will put down to inflammation, attack, illness or simply wearing out.

So simply, we would advise that you sit down, you think it through and you say “I’ll take all the action necessary to lead a comfortable and fulfilling life and then carry on and do so and forget about it.

Yes. Good advice. Thank you.

P.S. 15th February 2018

Soon after posting the above I ended up in emergency. It was found necessary to fit me with a pacemaker, which restored my activity to near normal . Not an action I initiated or foresaw,  but some part of me knew; see penultimate paragraph. See Part II 24th February 2018 for sequel.
