Quote from Vol 1 of Jane Roberts Class Sessions

And when you hear me speak, it is not only my vitality that you hear, but it is also your own vitality—for I am also a part of All That Is—and if I am ancient and new, so are you ancient and new. And there are miracles in this room, and miracles in each and every room which you must learn to perceive. There are joys and vitalities within you which you do not perceive, that you must learn not to understand intellectually but to feel. And you think because I speak to you when you are here that I belong here. But I am a part of no particular room and no particular time and no particular place. And you are a part of no particular room and no particular time and no particular place. Now to others that you do not perceive, you are as magical, you are as nebulous as a shadow falling upon a floor in mid-afternoon. They do not perceive you. And as they may not see your magic and your consciousness, so there are other magic shadows and other realities that you think beneath you that you do not perceive. But All That Is is aware of each shadow. And knows that each shadow... (break because of end of tape.) ... realities that they know. And my reality transcends this room. Then so does your reality transcend this room. And if Ruburt has access to my reality and if my reality sings through him...then my vitality is but a hint of All That Is—and that tiny and insignificant echo of the reality of all that exists. 

And the inner self that controls your breathing does not need you to consciously discipline it. And if you try to consciously discipline it then, indeed you can tamper with its beautiful, spontaneous order.

...

Do you think that the Son of God could be contained in one frame? Now, you have been given the free will because the spirit of Christ is within you, this does not mean that you do not have free will. The spirit of Christ gives you the life to do with it what you choose. Within you there are blueprints. You know what you are to achieve, as individuals and as people, as a race, as a species. You have free will, you can choose to ignore the blueprints. You can choose to ignore the blueprints for some time. You are learning that you are responsible. When you learn how to handle responsibilities, you will have a hand in very important matters.

Now, you have made physical reality something different than was intended. You did this through using your own free will, your egos have become overdeveloped, overly specialized. They are focused so strongly within physical reality and physical reality is far more painful than was originally intended. You are indeed in very strong respects within a dream. It is you who have made the dream too vivid. You were to work out problems and challenges, but you were always to be aware of your inner reality and of your true home. To a large extent you have lost contact with this. You have focused so strongly upon physical reality that it has become, indeed, reality. The only reality that any of you know. When you kill a man, most of you believe that you have killed him forever. And murder, therefore, is a crime and must be dealt with as such because you have created it and you must deal with it. You have created the crime. Death does not exist in those terms. In the dawn of history, in the dawn before history began, man changed form. They knew they (did not die). 

Listening to your tape, I see that I did not make one point clear. And it is this, then. No god created the crime of murder, and no god created sorrow and pain.


... What I have said, however, should serve to remind you when you question that these things were created by yourselves as you forgot your true beginnings, and only when you remember your beginnings will these cease.

Rumi’s Invitation to Go Beyond the Intellect


Here’s an interesting article by Deepak Chopra I read just now.  My background as a theoretical physicist turned metaphysicist meant that I was big on the intellect and struggled to “live the understanding” (as Lazaris defines Wisdom).  Anyway, this article makes the point that experience/living is the real wisdom.



Rumi’s Invitation to Go Beyond the Intellect


Rumi’s Invitation to Go Beyond the Intellect

By Deepak Chopra, MD

The popularity of the mystic Sufi poet Rumi is based on his love affair with God, expressed in such ecstatic terms that he makes the spiritual journey seem deeply romantic. But Rumi also reported about how his state of consciousness felt, which gives valuable clues about higher consciousness itself.

Here is a beautiful line of his that has profound implications for consciousness as well: “Exchange your cleverness for bewilderment.” What kind of bewilderment does he mean? To most people, bewilderment is the opposite of an appealing state, since it implies indecision, confusion, perhaps loss of control entirely. Rumi was known for applauding such a state, however, if the result was bliss and ecstasy.

To modern ears the message is more pointed. “Cleverness” is Rumi’s synonym for the rational mind, which seeks explanations that are logical and consistent. The aim of the intellect is to bring everything down to earth, so to speak, eliminating the folderol and fantasy associated with spirituality and mysticism in particular. Rumi encountered this not in terms of modern rationality with its basis in science but from clerics who studied and became expert authorities on “correct” Islam.

Another way to put Rumi’s idea comes from the inspired Bengali poet Rabindranath Tagore, who said, “You can’t cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water.” This translates into the declaration that making maps, models, brain scans, and anatomical pathways to explain consciousness isn’t the same as experiencing it.

This is an undeniable fact. Take the most basic conduit of experience, the five senses. Remove any one of them, and it is impossible to bring it back by describing it. “Color” is meaningless to someone who is blind, just as “scent” is unfathomable to someone without a sense of smell. But logical models supported by facts, data, and experiments overlook the obvious truth just stated. There is a fallacious claim that the brain, once its operations are fully mapped and analyzed, will disclose the source of the mind.

Instead of criticizing this viewpoint, Rumi offers an alternative, which he calls bewilderment, but which could equally be called wonder. We should all be struck with wonder and thrown into bewilderment by everyday life, as Rumi was. Not just Rumi, though. There’s a famous saying of Einstein’s: “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.”

The advantage of having a great scientist backup a great poet is that we cannot wriggle out of Rumi’s challenge to rationality by saying that he’s only speaking like a poet. He’s speaking like someone who knows full well the limits of reason when it comes to beauty, love, devotion, creativity, and wonder. Being closer to our time, Einstein’s affirmation tells us that reason isn’t abandoned; it is put in its rightful place.

Reason’s rightful place has ben exaggerated in modern life, allowing science and technology to usurp essentially everything. In a world where being human is cherished fully, the things just listed — love, creativity wonder, and the rest — would be valued for their own sake, which brings us closer to the infinite potential of consciousness than any mind-made model, past, present, or future.

Beginner's Guide to Creating Reality

Here is the final collection of Ramtha posts.  It makes for a lengthy BLOG post, but it makes more sense when you see the whole set.

Enjoy!

“Consciousness is the stream from God. The brain is the receiver, for it takes that consciousness and creates it into memorable, neurological thought and it can freeze that thought in the form of memory. Memory in creation is like gathering blocks of stone in which to build a hovel from. Thought in the brain, collected in the form of knowledge, allows you to re-create thought-forms, that if they are held in the forefront of the brain's neocortex will be the lawgivers that collapse energy into form. So the brain had to evolve to fit our level of need.”
(Ramtha:  Beginner’s Guide to Creating Reality (p. 177)

“Now what is divine in you? What is divine in you is consciousness and energy being frozen through the mechanics of a human brain. Why is that important? Because if you are surrounded with this — and you must be surrounded with these unraveling or raveling or tightening down; this is all around you — then what is it that affects this field? Thought. It is called the Observer. And where is the Observer? The Observer is inside of your head.

“Now if you have the power to create reality, it means that you have the power to affect this field, this field right here [the bands around the body]. And what is this field? All of this [seven levels] in different stages all the way back up to here [Point Zero]. And what is it about you that can affect the field? If you are this entity here [Observer] and you are having a thought right here [frontal lobe], then you are affecting this field around you. How do you do that? All matter, all mass — what you are sitting on, what you are wearing, what your body is made up of — is made up of subatomic particles.

“So where did they come from? Right here [sixth plane] is the quark field. Down here is the proton field [fifth plane]. Down here [fourth plane] is the closure of the nuclei. And all down here [first, second, and third planes] is the racing of matter and antimatter, what is called electrons and positrons. So all an atom is is the availability of potential.

“If you unfurl an atom at its nucleus level, you have an atomic bomb. How many of you know the power of an atomic bomb? Isn't it interesting that the energy comes from that which is hidden? The smaller the particle, the more powerful the energy. Did it ever occur to you, beginners, where that energy came from? Perhaps the energy that is unfurled in the splitting of the nucleus is really splitting apart this coiled energy that has been tightened down through the slowing of time. … Because if you rupture it, the kind of energy that you get is the sort of energy that is common on these levels. And that is what an atom is. All it is is that which is hidden, seven levels of reality in a particle.

“All an atom is is atmospheres of other planes coagulated and closed. Are they sensitive? Well, if we have a nuclei here and then we have the outer shell here and we have orbiting electrons, positrons, that then means that every electron that moves around this atom moves around this atom because we allow it to move around the atom. And how is it that we allow? We take it for granted. In other words, you are the Observer. If you focused on this particular particle, this atom, if you focused on its electrons, you could reverse the spin of the electrons around this atom. Why could you do that? Because that is your divine nature. If you are supposed to evolve and to make known the unknown, what is the faculty in you that is responsible for doing it? It is focused consciousness. When you have a thought and if you were to focus on this atom by adding electrons or taking them away, you would change the nature of its energy.

“The field that exists between you and I you don't see, and because you don't see it it is doing this. It is in motion, momentum. The moment you stop to look at the atmosphere between you and I, you start to see little lights. … Well, so someone told you that was just something happening with your eyeball? That is not anything happening with your eyeball. Those little lights are, in effect, this energy wave collapsing into a particle with an orbital light, which is called the electron. The moment you stop focusing on the invisible field, the lights disappear and then all you see is what you are looking at in the near distance, you to I, I to you. As long as you ignore this field, it stays inert, meaning you don't activate it, so it stays status quo. The moment that you focus on what is hidden, you unveil what is hidden.

Karma

Seth had said that there are all kinds of details in our lives that we don’t see or understand which are actually symbolic representations of actions/energies in past and future lifetimes!

Ramtha makes it sound bad that we carry energies into other lifetimes.  

I think it is often good … that way we can love in countless ways and innumerable lifetimes!  After all, Lazaris (and others) have pointed out that we manifest physical reality to explore love in its infinite dimensions and contexts … since “God/Goddess/All That Is” is love.

“The evolution of the state within your quantum state is very dangerous because you have emotions carried over, unfinished realities, from many lifetimes because you are addicted to the climax.  Every new incarnation is based upon a static quantum state that adjusts itself to the tremors and consequences in the times and consciousness now being made known.”(Ramtha:  Parallel Lifetimes, Fluctuations in the Quantum Field)

Taking your power back

Our life is built upon much more than attitudes.  I think the Lazaris material on Manifestation and Excellence (and the techniques therein) is the best.

Lazaris defines personal power as “the ability and willingness to act” … it’s not about “power over someone”.  I suppose Ramtha is right that attitude is a key element of taking back one’s power … but it isn’t everything and it requires sustained “effort” … not a one-time shot.


Love is like that too … only the sustained “effort” is the ongoing joy of loving!!!!!


“Now that you understand this constant quantum state and that quantum fluctuations are unfolding infinite possibilities within that state, we could reflect that into the large world as parallel lifetimes into which we shift with every meaningful ownership we make within our life.  We are shifting, not changing, into a new quantum state and a new large life.  We can say emphatically that you, your mind, and your attitudes are in control of your quantum state and are affecting your entire life.  In fact, your life is built on your attitudes.  In the old days, they used to call that taking your power back.”

Parallel lifetimes are real

Knowing that there are really an infinite number of possibilities for each moment of physical experience and, thus, an infinite number of serial experiences (known as parallel lifetimes), it sounds so simple to change in less than a heartbeat and to live a life of bliss!  

That could be true if one has mastered manifestation … which means cleansing/aligning the raw materials of our life (attitudes, beliefs, thoughts, feelings, choices and decisions) and sharpening the tools of manifestation (desire, imagination and expectation).  Sounds easy, but it can be a lifetime task and there never really is perfection … mainly because if we had perfected manifestation then we wouldn’t bother manifesting in 3D anymore and would have moved on!!! 

 We also have to think in terms of the bigger picture …. aligning this life with the Higher Self’s purposes.

So, watch for synchronicities and other feedback to confirm you’re on the right path … and enjoy the ride!

“There are parallel lifetimes here this moment that are not about anything abstract but about yourself.  We are not explaining an abstract here.  When we talk about parallel lifetimes, we are talking about quantum shifts of quantum states.  Now you are only interested in a lifetime.  Is it possible, as we speak, in your same body without growing older to shift quantum parallel lifetimes into the current lifetime?  According to science that is a probability, yes.  So, this isn’t New Age whales-in-space stuff now.  This is a possibility.  I want to ask you something.  In your parallel life, in the same body, the same you, what would your life be like if all your emotional needs had been met and satisfied?  The body doesn’t have to die, doesn’t have to go anywhere.  Think for a moment.  What if the emotion called resentment and anger – they are inextricably combined – were owned, who would you be?”

Parallel lifetimes = Quantum shifts

When one thinks about cosmic balance and parallel lifetimes … one can’t help but think when things get difficult in this lifetime that a quantum jump to the one where everything is beautiful would be the answer.  I suppose it’s small consolation that from the point of view of the Higher Self the full spectrum range of lifetimes are needed.  So, I guess, we’re taking one for the “Higher Self”!!!

“What is the meaning of life?  Now we understand that your life has been given experience to, and is a projection of, the fundamental tiny that already knows from birth to death that you have an inevitable end if you follow and live by what you have not owned.  That is your state.  Change within this state does not create a quantum fluctuation.  A mind-altering change creates a quantum fluctuation.  Then perhaps we begin to understand why there can be parallel quantum states of infinite potentiality, because that tiny statement is responsible for the large global view of parallel lifetimes.  Parallel lifetimes are equal to quantum shifts in states of consciousness, in states of the quantum field.  They are the same thing.  One is the tiny that governs the large.”
