TGU — it’s so simple….

Monday, June 27, 2016

F: 3:55 a.m. All right, ready if you are. I always feel these sessions would go straighter to the point if I could remember where we’re going, but I can’t. I can’t ever quite remember where we’ve been.

TGU: That doesn’t matter very much. Yes, it does help when you have a sense of direction, but that is more on your end – tuning the receiver, you might say – than on our end, transmitting. As long as the general intent is preserved – held in mind, so to speak – the carrier wave is in being. These are analogies, remember, not working descriptions of physical processes. It is not a matter of radio waves.

F: Understood. It feels, sometimes, like I help you switch tracks, or vary your reception, or whatever you’d say.

TGU: Bear in mind, communication is always a stretching-out of hands across a gap. What the recipient does affects what can be accomplished. But you as recipient are not alone, any more than you are ever alone. Your own non-3D component helps you comprehend, it suggests relationships, it nudges you – as we have often pointed out – and you experience it [the nudge] as an intuitive leap. Given your willingness to communicate, most things are possible; failing that, many fewer things are.

[Four pages of private communication.]

F: 5:20 a.m. So, after that long interruption —

TGU: Nothing is ever as complex – or as simple! – as it can be made to seem. Within this self-contradictory sentence is many a useful truth.

Your ideas about life and death and the afterlife are all provisional and are usually worked out (to the extent that they are worked out) in isolation from one another. The result is that each component seems simpler than it really is, and the overall scheme seems more complex than it really is. It is the difference between seeing a scene through a wide-angle lens or a kaleidoscope. The analogy doesn’t quite work, but loosely it does.

The simple over-all pattern is that you are part of an ever-repeating fractal scheme represented by “as above, so below,” complicated by your position on the interface between 3D and all the rest of reality. That is, those of you / those of us living in 3D live there as well as living in the rest of the All-D, of course, so we have our focus of attention unusually but not uniquely split. The 3D is more to us than it is to most, but of course anyone in non-3D can tune into it if they wish to. Remember, it is all one. Just because one person’s locus of identity is 3D and another’s is non-3D does not mean that either can avoid being in all, all the time, regardless what grammar and in fact language may lead you to think.

If you could keep this over-arching fact in mind, it would help you deal with the complications inherent in being stretched between 3D and non-3D, as if perilously over an abyss rather than naturally, normally, as one person stands easily on two feet.

However, within that overall easiness is the difficulty of a 3D-oriented mind attempting to lead a truncated version of its life, and consequently confusing itself, and experiencing disturbing cross-currents.

All your difficulties in 3D life could be seen as stemming from your misapprehension of your true condition. To the degree that you “see” [intuit, sense] your true position, your anxieties disappear, and with them, your problems. Then (only) do you see rather than hope that “All is well, all is always well.”

Thus, we have touched on a sense of sin as an indicator. We could as well use a sense of isolation, of being orphans in the universe. We could use any form of personal insecurity, including fear of the hostility of others, or of chance, or of malign fate. All these are variants on the same simple theme of maladjustment. If you do not know what you are, how can you know what is happening around you? If you do not understand your “internal” life, you cannot understand your “external” life, and if you cannot use clues from one to illuminate the other, you have little ability to find your place in the world.

You see? It is so simple, but to meet people’s complex expectations would stretch on forever, getting nowhere. And that is enough for now. More later, if you wish, or another day.

F: All right. Thanks.

 

One thought on “TGU — it’s so simple….

  1. No commentors – and this post sums up so much! Combined with having re-read the Problem of Puer Aeternus by Marie-Louise vonFranz (Jung’s student) where she writes about the symptoms of narcissisim. We (as a culture) are behaving like sucklings wearing grown-up bodies. And as we refuse to submit ourselves to any inner control, we end up inflicting the worst kind of violent coercion on others. All in the name of fear – fear of the unknown, of all the scares TGU mention. As if it was feasible to insulate oneself from the mystery of life.
