Here are some Elias comments on dealing with “work” … but these comments could apply to any situation.

ELIAS: You as essence, as consciousness, choose to participate in many different types of explorations. And in those explorations, dependent upon the type of exploration, you configure energy quite specifically, and you generate identifications for different expressions of the reality that you create to generate certain general and certain specific guidelines. As to your example, you view within your environment many different individuals, and are they actually individuals? Yes, they are actually energies that are configured in alignment with the blueprint of this particular reality—of which this is merely ONE reality—but in alignment with the guidelines and the blueprint of this reality, you all configure your energies in a manner that conforms with that blueprint, or you do not choose to participate in the particular reality.

ELIAS ON PROJECTION
Saturday, August 15, 2020
At one time, there was what we may call a federation of consciousness, though that is not the best term. But consciously, a group of people upon this earth managed to remember old truths. They remembered that they formed physical reality from the vitality of their own thoughts and feelings and images. They knew how to do this consciously. They knew how to speak the body. They knew how to speak the wind. They knew how to send their thoughts and feelings out into a universe to make the kind of universe that they wanted. Many times the knowledge has been forgotten and many times it has been reclaimed and so hopefully you will reclaim it once again.
There are methods that you barely understand by which you give your bodies vitality and strength. There are ways and methods by which you daily send forth your image out into the universe. There are ways and methods by which you form each organism within you and those organisms that you perceive as outside of you. Hopefully you will reclaim these methods consciously and use them. This is the endeavor that we are presently engaged in. It will lead us into the heart of perception as you understand it and as you do not, as yet, understand it. It will lead you into the understanding that your hopes, as you think of them in the present, exist not only in what you think of as the present, but in the past and future as well. That you form the universe as you know it en masse and individually from the focal point of this moment, from the focus of this moment that all of your selves exist now and are not done and finished anymore than you are done and finished. And anymore than I am done and finished. Anymore than my reality is no more than it appears to you in this room, for your reality is far more than it seems to be to you as you sit within this room. En masse and individually, as you know, your form the room, the furniture, the time, the setting in which it now seems to you, you exist. It seems to you that there is no other existence for you personally but this room and this time and this moment and yet, of course, you create it. You create the selves, who in turn create the images that you know. Within you this knowledge is apparent and speaks to you if you would listen. You think that there is something very esoteric, mysterious and strange often in what I say and there is not. What I say is as intimate to you as your own breath is if you would but feel your breath. If you would but once give up the defenses that you have set between what you think of as your intellect and what you think of as the rest of the self.
Now the sounds and the chanting of the Sumari as you presently understand it, has many purposes. There are physical repercussions in your own bodies that occur if you would but listen to your bodies and feel them when the songs go on, for there is language beneath words. Meanings in sounds that your atoms and molecules understand and react to and dance to and combinations that are there for you to open individually.
Where, from without, can truths come to you? They must come from within you. I can only encourage you to open yourselves to them, to listen; to be, to experience your own being. Not to experience your being second-hand through the experiences of others or through the opinions of others, but through your own experience and so I hopefully expect that you will learn these methods as you get them here and as you receive them for yourselves in your own ways. After all this time you still do not personally accept the fact that you are, in your terms at this moment, the sum of your own thoughts and emotions about yourselves and that whatever you want to fix you can fix, and that whatever you want to change you can change. If you do not change it is because you do not want to change badly enough. No results are forced upon you from the outside. You form the outside.

Be the Alchemist
Mark: You’ve said before that what holds true for the Big Picture, holds true for the small picture, in other words, as above so below. Can you speak to that?
James: I’ll give you an example. This is related to the crutches or devices that people rely upon — these are like our personal saviours. We need a device to synchronize our brainwaves, or … or we need special diets or teachers to guide us. Or I must read this or that book to fully understand my soul. No,
I’ll tell you right now, “no” we don’t. We need to practice the virtues of the heart, and we need to form a partnership with the universe. We do these things without condition. Without seeing results as we define results. We live in balance and in oneness. We develop our ability to orchestrate the virtues of the heart, but more than anything, it comes down to us. To our commitment to practice - our commitment to apply these unconditionally, and not simply talk about them.
For example, let’s say you found a device that synchronized your brain waves. You felt wonderful; you experienced a higher dimension or alternative consciousness. In the back of your mind — after the experience — you realize it’s an unnatural occurrence. It was not generated solely from your efforts. It was not your creation. It was a device. Or, let’s say you could take a pill and it would provide you with ESP or a god experience or a talk with an ET. What does this really do for you?
The long path — the path that’s founded in Source Intelligence, isn’t about saviours. It is about self-responsibility and activation. It is about learning to receive and transmit the ultra-fine frequencies of love in your moment to the best of your abilities, even when you judge yourself a failure, you practice forgiveness and understanding. Do you have the flashy experiences? Maybe not. But I would much rather be an alchemist than an explorer.
Mark: What do mean an alchemist?
James: If your human instrument is fear-based, locked in the rigidity of the left, reptilian brain, you’re more likely to broadcast fear, insecurity and depression — for example. These emotions are a form of energy and, like all energy, they are conserved. In a sense, energy is never created, it is transformed or recycled. I can take energy that is dense and closed, and I can transform it to an energy that is opening to the frequency of love. I can be an alchemist of energy, and instead of trying to turn iron into gold, I turn anger into kindness … or depression into interconnection … or indifference into compassion.
Energy then informs matter. Energy is many things by human standards … it can be physical energy used to produce something like work or to play a sport. It can be emotional energy that deals with love or anger. It can be a mental energy that helps us solve a problem or capitalize on an opportunity. It can be spiritual energy that activates and sustains our interest in the culture of soul.
These different types of energies have different frequencies. Some are condensed energies that are heavy — in a sense. Some are light. We’ve all felt these different energetic fields in rooms or public spaces or … or nature, and we’ve all felt them within ourselves. Sometimes we’re buoyant and joyful, and the energy — at least emotionally — is light and easy. Other times we’re heavy with disappointment or fear or frustration. We feel these energies. They’re not abstractions to us … or words on paper. They have a visceral reality in our local universe.
Being an alchemist is being able to transform energy. To shift energy. Not to let densities build up and calcify, because these are the things that weigh us down, and make our abilities to be alchemists for ourselves and others more difficult.
Explorers, on the other hand, like to acquire information, knowledge, data, and of course, experiences. This can be wonderful, so I’m not saying this is good or bad, merely that it’s a different path. They are seekers. They seek knowledge so they can experience a state that’s closer to truth … closer to wisdom. This world seems to hide truth so well, many people feel it’s vital that they put a lot of energy into this endeavour; otherwise, truth will slip away from them. I refer to these seekers as explorers. However, behind this acquisition of knowledge gnaws the question: is this really why I came here … why I incarnated? To acquire knowledge? Especially, as I mentioned before, when the knowledge is often contradictory or lacks any grounding in fact or proof.
For some, the answer is “yes.” For many, though, the answer is that they came to be alchemists. They came to experience the transformation of energies. They incarnated to become a receiver and transmitter of these higher energies, and to go about this consciously, courageously … and most important, unconditionally — to their best ability in the moment.
As you can imagine, these are not exclusive paths by any means. People can do both, and very often, the seeker-explorer becomes primarily an alchemist in the latter part of their life. The explorer fills up on all of the various paths, and ultimately realizes that they’re all tributaries to the long path, and the real reason to be alive is to demonstrate the example of an alchemist. Again, it’s all ratios, there’s never a 100% one or the other.
