7:05 a.m. Good morning, Miss Rita. Late start today. Care to talk about purpose? Louisa’s questions make distinctions that I think are false ones, but I would be interested to see what you think.
[Louisa Callo: I do feel as Winter, that this is bringing back those wonderful conversations and texts of the days of Bob Monroe. How much I miss all of this! There is an ever expanding clarity and language you and Rita are sharing here. Thank you.
[The mention of Clusters reminded me of Bob’s M Field and your Guys as well. I am not sure if this was mentioned already, since I am only starting to catch up on these recent Rita posts, but when you or Rita or any of us speak of “Purpose ” in this 3 D lifetime could she, you or someone offer examples of what this really means…outside of general ideas like to become love manifesting or healing or vast areas of development. Or is this our truer purpose? Do individuals come with clear and specific purpose or do they develop and change over life experience?
[And why do some past lives seem to dominate during a 3D life and not others? Is this tied into purpose? At some point in my own journey I received a message that I was here to help the feminine archetype evolve. But now I feel a shift into a Creative work as a focus. Is this a change of purpose or an expansion?]
[Rita:] This is larger than a discussion of Purpose, or let’s say the subject of Purpose is larger than it may appear. And of course Purpose is integrally tied to the question of “what do they do over there?”
When you think of Purpose, you tend to think in terms of results. Don’t forget to think in terms of origins.
That isn’t clear to me, but I can’t seem to get it any clearer.
Purpose is an arrow pointing forward, and so it is natural to look toward the point rather than the tail feathers. Or, a more dynamic analogy, you are always looking at the future for change, not realizing that changes are
No, I can feel myself losing it. Is it that I have to think while receiving?
It is because a certain way of thinking interferes with, substitutes for, receiving. The thinking you do in choosing this word over that, this analogy over that, is helpful when you already have the idea. But if you are using that process instead of, or before, receiving the idea, of course it is going to interfere. It is perception v. interpretation all over again.
Indeed it is, for the very reason that in an altered state it can be easy to confuse your own filling-in-the-blanks intellect with reception from others, especially since the distinction between self and other is so tenuous and fluctuating anyway.
I think it happens mostly when I sort of have something but not really. Fill-in-the-blanks describes it pretty well. If I don’t have anything that’s one thing. If I have it and it’s all I can do to write it down fast enough, that’s the other pole. But there’s a wide range between. Shall we try again?
In this particular instance, you are trying too hard to grasp the material, using effort rather than receptivity. It is guessing rather than knowing.
Yes, that’s the difference! Well put. Whenever I am in a situation where I am to perform on demand, say, I am nearly always sidelined into guessing, which is useless.
Not when you are doing healing work. [That is, it doesn’t happen then.] So why is that different?
I suppose because healing – oh, I get it. Healing work stays focused on trying to help, not on proving anything to myself or others.
And that is the secret, at least for you as an individual. So bear it in mind and proceed with greater ease.
Nice insight. Thanks. Okay, then—
Let’s start at the easier end. The nature of Purpose. We’ll have to start farther back than you might expect, not only for clarity but for ease of flow, for you will get a glimmer of light and it will ease you into it.
Remember Sam fashioning the elements of itself into what becomes Life A. You could say that Life A’s purpose is to see what happens when that particular mixture of elements is inserted into 3D awareness.
And I just got – correctly? – that that same—. Wow, this is really complex to untangle.
It’s just a matter of going slowly and untangling as we go. What you got is that any particular mixture is inserted into the 3D timestream, but may be inserted more than once, in that same pristine state, at different 3D times and places. Is isn’t sequential and it isn’t solitary.
I see that all my ideas of it were too simple. I was still thinking in terms of one-and-then-the-next.
It happens that way too. So Sam puts Life A1, the initial combination of elements, into 1750 America and Atlantean times and for all you know other planets. Each of those Life A1 experiences is a separate life as experienced by that initial combination prior to any modification by 3D experience. (This isn’t quite right, either, but there are too many variables to express; we can’t do it all at once in 3D. We’ll correct the picture when the proper time comes.) So then each life A1’s life is perhaps re-inserted into 3D life. Each one is then Life A2, and goes through the life, emerges, perhaps becomes Life A3, etc.
Yes, it is multiple not only in its own sequence as it develops through successive experiences, but also as multiple variants of Sam, set into difference in sequence.
Because this gets so complicated, we will look at it in simplified form, as usual. You have to have the skeleton firmly in mind before it is time to clothe it with flesh.
So, back we go again. Sam sets Life A1 into existence. It is true that this is done in multiple rather than singly, but we will keep that fact in the back of our mind and look at only one issuance.
The purpose of that life is – see what happens. That particular combination of elements, coexisting in a body for a lifetime, coalesces (or doesn’t) in the course of a succession of choices. You know all this. So that is one layer of purpose – see what happens.
But there is another layer, and that layer develops with successive incarnations.
Yes, I get it. Something between fine-tuning and honing a precision tool.
Every lifetime of experience shapes that ever-developing life. If Life A50 has had a combination of experiences and choices and consequent developments unlike any other – and it will have had – then yes, it is to the extent of its difference, as you say, a precision tool. At some point, inserting Life A50 into a given time-space moment will have very different possibilities than inserting Life A100, or Life A73. You understand. And that difference can be used to affect the mental and physical situation of the 3D moment it is inserted in.
Which in turn further affects Life A50.
Correct. It is a reciprocating process. Every life affects and is affected. Every life may be said to start off where it left off previously in terms of its own development. That doesn’t mean it has “unfinished business” in 3D terms. It may, it may not. But it will always have unfinished business in terms of its own development, for there will always be things needing work, or you might say, offering dividends.
I hope this is helpful, but we haven’t really dealt with Louisa’s specific questions yet.
Implicitly we have. But we can deal with some of them easily enough.
Different past-life resonances come front and center in different lives, or in different times within a given life, according to opportunity and aptness. This is a big subject, come to think of it, and we could look at it another time. But the short answer is that you draw to yourself what is most appropriate at any given moment. Clearly that is tied in to your life’s purpose, or it would not have had scope to happen – only don’t let yourself think that purpose is only aimed outward or forward.
I couldn’t quite get that last.
Don’t let yourself unconsciously think Purpose means external result, or that it means internal result. It may be both, it may seemingly be neither, as the consequences of dealing with it may be invisible. Easiest just to go with the flow, trusting, and doing your best. Most of what your life is about, you will never know while in 3D, if only for lack of a way to express and understand it.
And, parenthetically, the distinction between “change of purpose” and “an expansion” is purely illusory. It is merely looking at the same thing differently.
Several things here we could say more about, and perhaps someday we will, but enough for now.
Our thanks as usual, and I don’t miss the fact that these sessions are as much an implicit “how-to” as a conveying of specific information. For both of which, we thank you.
