[Background: I have not experienced material quite like this before, and frankly I’m feeling a little like I’m on thin ice. When the following thoughts arrived mostly in one sitting via my joint mind, I felt a lot more like a “spigot” than a co-producer of the water. As always, this doesn’t make it The Truth. It is a perspective, and no doubt my part of the process can’t help but add distortion. The themes of this material are of great interest to me, but have been well beyond my working knowledge. – John]
(From My Joint Mind) :
Spirit is a force of creation, and that force is commuted through energy that permeates all consciousness. [The word “commuted” came through to me and I wasn’t sure of its fit but went on and came back to it later. It is meant to convey the idea of a “carrying between” as well as an interconnecting, and I saw in retrospect that it got the idea across.] The energy of spirit is the fuel of creation. If one wants to pursue the metaphysics of this, Seth has elaborated in depth on a form of energy he calls “consciousness units”, which exists beyond the boundaries of 3D and follows its own laws of behavior. I believe these to be the means of Spirit, or at least “of Spirit”.
This force doesn’t dictate the specifics of what is to be created. It has been called unconditional love (or as one of my colleagues at Frank’s program called it, “Big Love”); but, there is no adequate English word for it. You’ve felt it (a tiny amount of it—because that’s all we’re capable of handling), and others have felt it, in the heart. It both compels you or animates you as a creature of creation, and at the same time lovingly holds you and binds you to the Source of all. Go to your heart and you sense a strong pull to your core, your roots, the home of all. At the same time you feel the force for creation as an unending stream of energy. Call it prime energy. (Or any other name you want to attach to it.)
This fundamental of prime energy is valid everywhere in reality: a binding pull toward unity, and an unconditional loving encouragement or drive to create. It is a unifying energy greater than what a human can fully experience in 3D, and at the same time a gift to be carried forward and expanded.
(One meaning of) Jesus’ Parable of the Talents was about the entrusting of the treasure of creative energy with the intent of furthering it.
(Having familiarity with, but not really a student of, the Bible, I had to look up this parable later, and it was clear to me that was what was referenced. Also, this does not appear to be the traditional Christian interpretation. I later added the words, “one meaning of” because I could not bring myself to leave the impression that this was THE meaning.
From Wikipedia: “In both Matthew and Luke, a master puts his servants in charge of his goods while he is away on a trip. Upon his return, the master assesses the stewardship of his servants. He evaluates them according to how faithful each was in making wise investments of his goods to obtain a profit. It is clear that the master sought some profit from the servants’ oversight. A gain indicated faithfulness on the part of the servants. The master rewards his servants according to how each has handled his stewardship. He judges two servants as having been “faithful” and gives them a positive reward. To the single unfaithful servant who “played it safe,” a negative compensation is given.”)
We are a product of this gift. We exist as a piece of expanded consciousness because upstream of us a community of consciousness created themselves (with a lot of help) through living and became the seed to our blooming.
There will always be the dichotomy of pull and push to this creative energy. There will be the pull toward that which you came from, which in turn has the pull toward what it came from … and that unmistakable direct pull to Source at the core of our being. The push is to fulfill our role as creator, to use our variability, our uniqueness, to further creation.
When it comes to creation, our value is in our differences, because they set up the constantly changing constitution of the whole, the changing interconnections, and the consequential natural flows of thought and emotion. (From an earlier dialogue: thought and emotion produce prime energy.) Do not minimize the value you add via the creation of yourself!
The highly interconnected, variated and continuously changing consciousness provides an active state of being, versus a stasis. It is the basis for a self-generating and self-sustaining existence.
All That Is derives its energy from the ever changing flows within itself, and that energy is drawn to its core and recycled as purified (not in a moral sense, but more like an electrical one) prime energy to fuel consciousness itself. (This is a highly simplified and English-language version of a concept that deserves a better word than “recycling”. Also, this is no doubt entirely wrong, but the best I can come up with to describe what I feel totally inadequate to fully comprehend.)
Spirit energy is brought in and then sent back out, breathing life and giving life.
We are living in an ever-changing reality and experiencing the unfolding of creation all around us. It is a blessing and a necessity for being that the differential soul-producing process works. Of course Earth is only one of an uncountable number of these realities, and the importance of differentiation does not apply only to humans.
When we look at “our situation” (the overall mind-producing process of 3D) in this context, perhaps we can better see the unity, or wholeness, made up of an uncountable number of differentiated parts. Perhaps we can better value diversity, and even understand the benefits (as well as the consequences) of significant difference. Perhaps we can better see the necessity as well as the beauty of “planned chaos” brought on through our freedom of choice, because it guarantees continued differentiation.
