33 – Communication

[Thursday, February 16, 2006]

(11 a.m.) All right. Typed that up and sent it out. Continue?

Your second questions was, do we communicate up here, and – to throw ‘em both in together – if what you do there affects what I can do here.

Sure we communicate! We do nothing but communicate. But it ain’t exactly like conveying information; more like communicating states of being. This won’t be all that easy for you to get, and maybe we’ll have to call in somebody else, but let’s try. What you learn today, what happens to you inside and outside, changes you, a little or a lot. In your bodies, you don’t notice these changes so much, or so quickly. So what you regard as communicating, we think of as smoke signals! That is, you ain’t communicating very much! You’re hinting.

Us, it’s different. If something changes me, it changes me all the way through, and anybody touching onto me knows it, and that changes them too. And the people they touch feel their change, and change in turn. You see how volatile it all is?

So what do you think? You think it makes any difference to the other side what you do, when everything you do or think or feel – or choose, in short – affects us and has to affect us and can’t help affecting us?

You see? Sometimes you think what happens in physical world isn’t important. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. Your choices continually affect us, as we affect you. Does this speak of our interest in your life? Does it speak to the feeling that you have that what you are – what you choose to become – somehow matters?

You see? What is this but the feeling that (on the one hand) God loves and cares for you and (on the other hand) you have a responsibility. It is true that religions put rules around it all, and it is true that every vision includes distortion, and so you get the vindictive God, the angry God, the judgmental God, the capricious and arbitrary God. This can’t be helped much, because it is human nature to conceive its God in the only model it knows: itself. “God is created in the image of man.”

It is a new day; it demands new images of God. Your present natures will not content themselves with older containers, for they do not fit you. What relationship do you have with an image of God molded from the monarchs of Assyria? Yet the underlying reality does not change. This is why version after version of an image of God appears: You need to have some recognizable model of reality, yet your perception of reality changes, and therefore reality appears to change, and the model must change. You will make better models if you study the older ones and try to see what the older model-makers were seeing, than to start continually from scratch. There can be an advantage sometimes to starting from scratch, but not continually.

(1 p.m. So – last question for the moment – what is your life there?

That is not the easiest question you have ever asked. If it could really be told, it would be told, of course. But translation errors overwhelm. Here is a thought experiment:

If your life and motivations and surroundings were exactly the same except that you knew and experienced at all times that all is connected, and if consequences were not delayed, and if you could range where you wanted to in time and space – but could not be fixed in one time-space and could not experience delayed consequences – what would your life be?

And if, at the same time you were in this condition of freedom-of-time-and-place and immediate consequences and total connection, one part of you was connected to just those opposing conditions –what would your life be?

That is our situation; and given that you are part of us, it is your situation as well. You identify with one end of the continuum, we with the other – for the moment. That is the biggest difference.

3:30. Well, friends, you heard my brother ask [in an email] what is the ultimate crisis, the root of so much that is wrong. (You also heard him suspect that you’re just teasing us, wanting to be begged for information. Did you hear me defending you? J)

You know our methods, and expressed them very well. We approach a subject by circling around it, as the context in which something is seen determines how it looks. Another way to say that is, the context one sees from determines what can be seen. That is a major theme here, of course.

It is also true that we are attempting to monitor your energy usage. It would not do to make you an example of what can go wrong, when we’re busy making you an example of what can go easily and well. So this limits our sessions somewhat. Also, given that this is being distributed in email, and not everyone prints out their email, the shorter the session the greater chance that it will actually be read. We might even recommend sending them in pieces, as you used to send your black-box transcriptions.

We don’t want to say more at this time. You did get some exercise, and that is very good. Get some rest too. Perhaps after supper, depending on how you feel.

  1. Dear Frank,

    I also wonder on a daily, sometimes hourly basis if what I think and feel, and the transformations I undergo is of importance to the Spirit world, and those around me in the physical realm as well. Reading what you share reassures me that what happens to us is important, and yes, what we do indeed matters! If we are all One, then the transformation of One is the transformation of another. I think of the butterfly effect as an analogy.

    You say that “Your present natures will not content themselves with older containers, for they do not fit you.” So much Light has spilled into me, on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels, every aspect of Being that I feel I’m falling apart, literally! I feel energy coming in on the right side of my body very strongly, but the left side always hurts, as I know I have to release the pain brought to the surface by the Light. Literally, I feel it in my body.

    Am I using too much energy, or is too much energy coming into me? As time passes on a daily basis, I notice the Light hitting stronger and stronger. Is it “normal” that a person experiences things this strongly in their physical body? I can’t usually talk about this with my friends or aquaintances, as they might find my experiences “far out.” Is this how you experience things? Please give me some feedback.

    Thank you,

  2. I don’t know if it is “normal” because I don’t know what normal is any more. I know that sounds like an evasion, but I really don’t. Perhaps someone here will be able to help out of his or her own experience.

    What I can suggest is that you spend time in quiet meditation, asking for more clarity about the situation. But asking means being willing to listen for (and to!) the answer! So be sure to do that. It sounds like an energy blockage but I don’t know. Perhaps using the Waters of Life and Health meditation would help, and I can’t see how it could hurt.

  3. Dear Frank,

    I think you are right in that some kind of blockage is in me. I literally feel stuck. I must have been asking for clarification, but not really listening. I’ve seen the Waters of Life and Health mediation on the Hampton Roads sight and try it. Thank you for your advice!

    As to what “normal” is, I think it’s the fear I hold about expanding my current perception of reality, going by what I know based on my actual experience, instead of what I think is possible. A part of me doesn’t want to believe things I’m learning about my past and myself, but it’s one of those things I have to.

    The truth is, some of the “past life memories” I’ve shared in response to what you’ve shared about Joseph Smallwood are hitting me on the emotional level. I’m now feeling with my heart some of the things I shared intellectually. I have to accept that I wasn’t able to do anything about social injustices of that day, because some of my colleages were driven more by materialism, rather than humane or compassionate persuits. But as a human, I’m not perfect either. I shouldn’t accuse them, but I’m trying to understand the paradoxes of human nature. How could I see myself as a person who believed Love was the answer, yet be in a profession that fights? Frank, do you ever feel that conflict, having experienced a life as a soldier in the civil war?
