lias on Employment as a Game, not Work

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


Enjoy!


Elias on Employment as a Game, not Work

ELIAS: First of all, my friend, let me express to you, this is another exampleof associations being different from what may actually be occurring. In this, you incorporate an action that you identify or define as a job. And in that, in your job you define what you do as work. That creates an automatic association, and part of that association is the expectation that there are elements of work that are uncomfortable or that you must merely struggle through, for that is work. Therefore, it may be helpful for you to redefine your work, and rather than generating the association as work to allow yourself to play a game, and when you engage your employment, approach the situation as an enormous game. Every individual that you encounter is a game piece, and every element that you encounter or interact with, such as computers, are also game pieces. This will be affecting of your perception. 

Now; in association with moments in which you generate this feeling that you do not wish to be participating in that moment, you ARE offering yourself a communication. I would express that you would offer yourself that communication much less if you are engaging your employment as a game rather than work; but when you generate that expression to yourself, that feeling, offer yourself permission to respond to it. Not in a manner of black and white, of “I wish not to be here” and therefore you merely leave and it is either a situation in which you participate with your employment or you do not, you either continue and force yourself through your day to continue or you remove yourself entirely. No, acknowledge that communication, that feeling, and allow yourself permission to respond to it. And perhaps you may choose to distract yourself and engage some other activity in some other location for an hour, or perhaps even a few minutes will be sufficient. It is dependent upon how that communication continue— but it is a matter of listening. 

The reason that that communication repeats and becomes stronger is that you override it. You hear it (Anon laughs), but you ignore it and you force energy in opposition to it. Whereas, if you are acknowledging yourself and offering yourself permission to act in conjunction with what you are communicating to yourself, once again it dissipates, for you are acknowledging and you are not generating an opposing energy.

When you generate opposing energies, you emphasize whatever you areexpressing to yourself and you reinforce that energy, and it becomes stronger AND it becomes more important. Importance is not necessarily associated with positive or comfort. Many times you place importance upon what you dislike. And the more important it becomes, the more you pay attention to it. And the more you pay attention to it, the more you reinforce it. Therefore, it you dislike some expression and you continue to oppose it, you offer it more and more importance.

More from Elias on Projection

 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.


But as you ARE participating in this particular reality, you have chosen to be exploring what you can generate and how you can manipulate within this particular reality in conjunction with its guidelines. You project energy, which creates a physical manifestation that incorporates a specific form which you identify as yourself. Other essences generate the same action.

And in that, the key element is the objective mechanism of perception. For what you are actually doing is projecting energy. You each project energy to each other, and in the RECEIVING of the energy – not in the projecting of it, but in the receiving of it – each individual configures that energy into solid manifestations. Therefore, you view the solid manifestation of another individual with a particular eye color and hair color and a particular form, a particular height and weight. In this, the other individual is projecting an energy to you with that information, and you configure immediately the energy that you have received to generate the manifestation of the other individual in association with what you have received, which occurs instantaneously.

This is also a magnificent example of the tremendous power that you each incorporate, for you do these actions with no thought and no effort. You immediately receive and configure energy and generate actual physical manifestations. These are the projections of perception.

As I have expressed previously, perception may be likened to a holographic projector. This projector creates images, and they are very real and quite solid, although you can also create them to be less solid and manipulate them in different manners.

Elias on Projection

 ELIAS ON PROJECTION


Now; as I have expressed previously, your body consciousness is not merely a vessel. It is not what you would term to be a shell that houses you. It is actually a projection of you into a physical form. Just as any other physical form within your reality, they are also configurations of energy that are extensions of you and formed into actual matter in physical manifestations.

Conscious Reality Creation

 

SETH EARLY CLASS SESSIONS, VOL 4, SESSION, JANUARY 11, 1972

 

Conscious Reality Creation

 

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.

Seth on Sumari from The Early Class Sessions, Vol 4

 SESSION, NOVEMBER 23, 1971


Sumari

Sumari:
“Ispania
“Wena nefari
“Dena dena nefari
“Lona lona Sumari”

(Sumari:) It is with this always we begin, and we begin our classes.  It is with this chant always that we begin our endeavours in space.  It is not your own, and only a translation, for we do not use verbal communication.  It is always with the facsimile of what we have heard that we begin our work, and in many guises and in many ways you are acquainted with our activities.  We have always been here, in your terms, as you have always been in other places and other times, and there is a great familiarity and wonder on our part that you are still involved in these endeavours which were begun in your terms so many centuries ago, and in ways that you cannot now presently comprehend.  And yet you are even familiar with what comes out as what appears as my voice in your own traits and your own translations.  There are cities that we have built that you have helped us build.  There are wonders here, wonders in your own reality, that we helped build in other ages in your time.  We have been here many times, and you have been where we are.

Sumari!

(The second voice which came through about twenty minutes later, was louder and sounded “older”.)

(Other Sumari:) And I am Sumari in another guise.  And all of you have your masks and guises that you wear and have worn.  I am Sumari in another guise.  And all of these guises are myself, and all of your guises are yourselves.  And as I dwell in many realities, so dwell you in many realities.  You will learn to become aware of these – you are learning.  I am aware of all your activities.  I am aware, for example, of your Seth and of your Seth II.  We are all Sumari.  Now we are appearing more clearly in terms that you can understand.  But we are all Sumari, and if you are all Sumari and never forget that you are all Sumari, and you have always been Sumari.  It is the name of your family.

([Gert:] “Are there other family names?”)

(Much later and softly.)  It is the name of your family.  It has always been the name of your family and there are many families.  I am telling you your family name, and you are learning of your heritage.  I am Sumari.  You are Sumari.  Thank you for coming to our class.

SESSION, DECEMBER 7, 1971

Sumari Language

It is true that the Sumari do not communicate verbally, and yet so far you have been given what seems to be the rudiments of a language and why?  You will know, but it is much more fun if you figure it out for yourselves.  You are also being introduced, or you will be introduced, to some different kinds of concepts and to some different kinds of communication, so be on your toes.  There should also be communications in one way or another in the dream state.

Now if you were not the Sumari you would not be here at this particular time, and if all of you did not know what it was to be Sumari you would not be here at all.  You have been given a language it seems that is not a language.  And since you have been given it there is a reason for it, and what earthly good is a language that is not a language?  An ancient language that never was and within those paradoxes what meanings are there for you to learn?  Now I have – I’ve always been Sumari.  I am a tough old Sumari.  I am a Sumari of the old school.  A Tumali of the old school.  And what is there about a language that has both beginnings and endings in it as you think of them, elements of a distant past and portents of what perhaps languages might be in your future?  And why do you need a language beside the one that you have?  And you need not worry, you will not have to learn declensions.  I would not have you stew over that with all of your other problems. …

Now all of you to some extent in your dream work keep records, and as such you are dealing with language as you know it, and you are interpreting your experience in terms of a mundane language that is as much a deception as it is a reflection of your feelings and experiences, for you cannot find words within your language to express your own feelings and experiences.  Now, are you witnesses of the beginning of a language, the birth of a language that never existed?  Are you witnesses of the re-emergence of a language that was never spoken?  Did it ever occur to you that there are languages that have never been verbalized, that beneath the words that you know and speak there are other sounds and other meanings that you do not approximate with the language that you know?  Did it ever occur to you that there are other methods of communication and ways of learning what they are and steps to learning them?

Now, you are beginning to communicate backward and trying to put aside the language that you knew and the phrases that you took for granted in order to approximate a more pure communication.  One way of doing this would be to take several steps away from the language that you know to get into somewhat unfamiliar territory and to learn your way there, and then to be taken further down the primrose path where little by little the vowels and syllables themselves would disappear until you are at the pure sound and beneath that with true feeling.  You see but a representation of me, as you realize.  You see but a representation of this Sumari, as you realize.  You see but the representation of yourselves in the mirror, as you realize, but behind these representations are larger multidimensional realities, and we have many teaching methods and you are apt learners.  And we will indeed, with your permission and consent, lead you into other areas where you need not rely only upon the communication that you now take for granted, and we must begin by building bridges and so we shall.


Do surprises never end?  In what voices and what languages do truths come and in what packages and in what forms?  And what the heart knows needs no translation, and the universe does indeed speak without words and so the truths that come to you do indeed, to some extent, come packaged or you would not perceive them.  And you would throw them away for you would think the air cannot speak and space makes no noise, and in the silence there is no voice and no meaning and so voice and sound and language are given you.  But let you remember that the language and the sound and the noise are packages that have been parceled for you, but for you personally, tailored for you exactly according to your own purposes and needs.

If, and I am speaking now metaphorically, if-if-if-if-if there was ever a Sumari language existing in the past then it had to be created, and if you want it to be found you had better help create it.  You are forming realities.  There are people, there are groups of consciousness, who cannot speak.  There are feelings that have no vocal expression.  There are consciousness, groups of consciousness, that try to communicate and you cannot listen because you insist that they have a language.

([Gert:] “Are these the blocks of lights I get in my room?”)

They are symbols and symbols are quite real.

Now if you would truly learn how to listen, and you are beginning to, then you would know what I am saying, and my own speech lately is carefully calculated.  In certain terms, and remembering what I told you earlier, in certain terms the Sumari language does exist, and in certain terms you know it well.  The Sumaris certainly exist, and you are here because you are a Sumari.  And the Sumari have a way of looking in on their own now and then and coming home.  These are your own secrets I am bringing out into the open.  Questions that you have within yourselves.  You need ways to make the answers plain to you so you can understand them.  We work in two directions.  First, we try to bring interior knowledge outward into some kind of physical materialization where you can deal with it in terms of sound or vision, and then we try to get you to go inward and dispense with sound and vision, so you are always working in two directions at once.  And since past, present and future exist now, in your terms, you need bridges, because you do not really understand the nature of time, so you think you need a bridge to get from past to present or from past to future or from one kind of reality to another.  This is not the case, of course, but while you think you need the bridges they are provided, and the Sumari are voices that call to you though they do not have sound.  They are memories that come to you from yourselves from both the future and the past.  They are yourselves speaking to you in multitudinous voices in many languages focused for you in a particular place and a particular time.  You are the Sumari who communicate with you and they are you.

The point of power is in the present

Seth: "We are dealing now with your beliefs as you know them in this life, and leaving for a later chapter any bleed-throughs of beliefs that may occur from other existences. But whatever beliefs you accept, for whatever reasons, your point of power is in the present.

It is far more important that you understand this than that you become overly concerned with labyrinthian "past reasons," for you can get so lost in a negative approach that you forget that these beliefs can be changed in the present. For various reasons, you hold beliefs that you can alter at any time."

Be the alchemist

This is extracted from the WingMakers material:

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.

(1:30:00)

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.
