12:25 a.m. Guys, ___ asked me to ask you if you can see any possible paths for him that might lead to a breakthrough. I told him I’d try. Can you help us, here?
Well, why do you think you had him in mind yesterday when we were giving advice? But he would have to listen. Anyone, where one is, as one is, may experience a breakthrough at any time, given sincerity and receptivity.
Sincerity. The word means more than not pretending, not dissimulating. It means being one thing thoroughly, not in any half-hearted manner.
Would you expound upon that, please?
Of course. Another way to put it could be to say, be all of one will, or be all of one vision, and allow no self-division.
So far, these are generalities.
They are, but they are the necessary foundations to specifics.
Well, we’re listening.
Yes, I get it: Recalibrate.
You have not needed that reminder since your Mind Mirror awakening, but as you know, one is at any time liable to fall into sleep, and the proof of the pudding is what happens when one awakens again – or, indeed, if one awakens again. This is particularly a problem for one who works alone, without a community to sustain him.
That’s what I’m counting on you to do for me.
We just did.
So, sincerity and receptivity. Be of one mind, and be that mind Beginner’s Mind.
That may be hard for one our age, and a professional mind-worker with extensive altered-state experience.
Does it stop you?
Perhaps your situation and his are not the same, and the difference expresses in attitude, which in turn expresses in “external” situation – in this case the external being a non-3D external, that is, an uncooperative extension of his guidance. This turns the tables conceptually, you see. But at the same time, it is a reconsideration that returns the power to him rather than leaving him to some extent a victim of “external” forces.
Let me see if I understand that. I think you are saying that what he perceives as external interference – an uncooperative or even hostile element among his non-3D components – might equally justly be seen as the result of his seeing things that way rather than what is objectively there and causing trouble.
That’s more or less right. It isn’t that his difficulties don’t exist. It isn’t that they don’t express as terrific obstructionism, “bad luck,” illness, uncooperative 3D others, generalized dissatisfying results of sincere intelligent motivated effort. But the cure for the disease isn’t allopathic but homeopathic.
An analogy, I get that, but what specifically?
When one changes one’s view of health and disease from allopathy to homeopathy, one changes from protecting against invasion to proactively changing to make one’s being uninviting to invaders. That is, one adjusts one’s thermostat to provide the proper desired temperature, rather than opening and closing windows, lighting fires, etc.
Still a little clumsy, but I’m getting the idea. It is within his ability to change, because it is always within our ability to change; we are not dependent upon someone allowing us, nor therefore at the mercy of one denying us. But this comes close to that annoying New Age tendency to blame the victim for his own dilemma.
We’re not into blaming. We are trying to deliver what you asked for on his behalf.
Well, we’re still listening; I just mentioned a potential pitfall.
It is almost too simple to say. You, he, anyone – your reality is what you magnetize to you. By what you are, come your circumstances, regardless of externals.
I’m hearing “Viktor Frankl” again.
Yes, because he is more than an example of one who offers the only way forward. He unknowingly personifies the dilemma as well as the solution. He had no control over circumstances, obviously. But he perceived, and later expressed for others, the fact that one can still choose one’s reaction to what one cannot alter. This was much more than he himself realized, and we’ll show you why: He experienced his basic freedom to magnetize a reality. He couldn’t wish Hitler and the camps away. He couldn’t wish away his own mental, physical, spiritual suffering. He at one point had absolutely no external freedom. But –
But he had the freedom to create third-tier effects. I get it, suddenly.
Not quite so much create, as select. He could not affect first-tier effects: Physical conditions were what they were. But by selection of second-tier effects – how he would allow first-tier effects to affect him (choosing his attitude to those first-tier events) – he chose his third-tier effects; that is, what he would become.
Well, how does that happen? By magnetizing non-3D influences, you might say. By choosing what you wish to resonate with by choosing what you will allow yourself to select as second-tier effects.
That’s very interesting. You are saying – come to think of it, you said this all those years ago with Rita – that we can change our guys upstairs by changing what we resonate to.
That is the only way one ever changes. First comes choice, at some level, then comes the opening of the way.
But you see, this is why we say sincerity. You don’t change your opinion, you change your center of gravity. Think how your life changed in the years since you stopped complaining or silently suffering and decided – and said, to yourself and others – that “Life is good.” What did that do but change your second-tier effects, and bring “good fortune” or “opportunity” into your life?
I had all but forgotten that. You’re right, it was a conscious decision to see it that way, only all this time later it is my reflexive way to see things, seeming self-evident. But initially it was a decision. I had forgotten.
So, sincerity and receptivity. To say “Life is good” regardless of circumstances is to affirm the reality you resonate to. To say “Life is unfair” is no less true on the evidence, but harping on that does not take you where you want to go, unless being right is more important to you than being fulfilled and even happy.
So, to sum up: His breakthrough is available immediately, but he must claim it.
That’s a good way to put it. Nothing external needs to change – and that includes guidance as well as 3D externals. Control of second-tier effects is all that is necessary, and is, after all, the essence of shamanism.
This seems very valuable; thank you. After I send it to him, should I broadcast it after omitting his name?
Let him chew on it first. He may have follow-up questions or objections.
Okay. Well, thanks. This was valuable to me, and I hope to him too.
