Seems to me you have a good opportunity for teaching us how “all is well” coexists with all not being well, in the latest terrorist incident, in Nevada.
Yes, it will serve.
My way is that once I know that something like that happened, I avoid anything more than the bare fact itself. I don’t immerse myself in the detail and the analysis that is sure to follow. I suppose that is somewhat ostrich-like, but it seems to work best for me.
Not your reaction to the JFK murder, however. Could your subsequent reaction to tragedies have been molded in reaction to your reaction to that event?
Interesting thought. I didn’t even want to know anything about various theories as to who really killed him. I accepted the official story, and my mourning was too deep to allow me to touch the questions, for decades, literally. It must have been 25 years before I emerged from that shell-shocked condition.
And you weren’t about to allow yourself to be equally traumatized again.
No. I walled it off. I remember that. I felt Bobby Kennedy’s murder deeply, but I stayed away from reading about it after the first week.
Now consider the situation. In the 3D world, there was your suffering and there was the resultant habit to deal with the possibility of similar shocks. What about in the All-D, where your 3D reactions were only a part of the reality?
I don’t know, you tell me.
Outside of time and space – which in context means in the world beyond the constrictions of 3D-ever-moving-present-moment life – what was real? Your day to day movements of your body? Your moment-by-moment words, thoughts, emotions, reactions? It probably seems like it, but no. Outside of the present moment, what is real is –
Well, we’re going to have to backfill for a moment. It is true that in one way every moment of your lives is real and enduring and vividly alive. That is what the Akashic Record is, really, each moment held like a fly in amber, except alive. But it is equally true that this could be considered your soul’s record, while your spirit’s record is in what you sometimes call the completed self.
I think you mean, the spirit’s record could be thought of as the end-of-the-story record, rather than the moment-by-moment record. It is how the spirit was changed by the events and by my reactions to the events, from the point of view of “that life is over and done with; here’s the net result.”
Yes, that is the sense of it.
Which as usual begs the question of how there can be a net effect when every possible path in my life is taken, including any paths in which JFK wasn’t killed in Dallas. As usual, the question is, why wouldn’t they all cancel out.
And as usual the answer is, they don’t cancel, they add. The result is not a result of attrition but of addition. The very plethora of results is the answer.
I keep forgetting that. My tendency is to think that a life will produce a result that will be built upon, and I keep getting reminded that a life produces a huge range of results, all of which considered together, and only all of them considered together, is the result.
It makes a difference. Many a conundrum in logic disappears when you realize that common sense is misleading you by over-simplifying the situation.
A hierarchy of reality
So, to consider our response to your question. What is real in your life, as seen from the non-obstructed All-D perspective, is the result in you of going through such experiences either directly or vicariously. Yes, your moment-by-moment reaction is as real as the 3D world, but in a way, it isn’t any realer, even though it continues to exist in a way the moving-present 3D world does not.
To put it in a hierarchy of reality:
1) The 3D experience itself, including bodily impact, anything sensory.
2) The psychic portion of the 3D experience; what enters the Akashic Record.
3) The net effect on this version of your life of having gone through the experience.
The first tier hurts; the second tier has meaning; the third tier contains the potential from that life forward.
Well, what about the time I healed Joseph Smallwood’s injured back? [As described in Chasing Smallwood. I, working in an altered state from 1994, changed what had happened in 1863, with momentous consequences. Impossible, according to conventional views of reality. Less unusual than we might think, according to the scheme sketched out by our non-3D friends.] Didn’t one life move to at least the Akashic Record version of another life and alter it, thus opening a new path for the entire life, at least that version of his life?
And perhaps you might have been able to – still could – cause him to move his body [during the battle] to avoid the crippling blow. That would be at the first-tier level of reality. Wouldn’t that be a good thing?
I’m sensing a trap. I don’t know if I would still be me if he didn’t have his altered-state experience of an angel healing him. If that is a true risk, I don’t suppose I would change things even to spare him. But, is it a true risk?
Remember, you are considering one given time-line. It isn’t like it would remove all other possibilities or even one of them.
Ah, but in effect I would be creating a new possible time line, and I would be somehow tied to it.
Haven’t you spent years wondering why you couldn’t live in a timeline in which Kennedy did not get killed?
For the first time, I’m beginning to understand. Not all timelines lead to the same place, of course. From your third tier of reality, where we come out is more important than what we go through to get there.
That’s the idea.
Can’t avoid the speed bumps if we want to traverse the road.
That’s a little too simple, but close enough. Now, enough for a while.
All right. Thanks for all this.
