… You do not need to write or preach to justify your existence. Being is its own justification.
Now if you would each, for ten minutes a day, open yourselves to your own reality there would be no question of self-justification for you would realize the miraculous nature of your own identity.
The problems you set for yourself for this life you set in the hope that you will solve them. You do not set them for yourselves like millstones about your neck hoping ahead of time that you will drown. All you have to do is realize your own freedom. To cease being afraid of the fear of water, it is not water that you fear, but the fear, so face the fear and conquer it.
You form the reality that you know, not esoterically, not symbolically, not philosophically; some great oversoul does not form it for you, you cannot put the burden there either. And though I stare at our friend here, who asked the question, this applies to each of you and to our friend, Ruburt. You form your reality and until you understand this completely you cannot change it, nor can you use your freedoms.
You have in the past, collectively or individually, to blame a God or a fate for the nature of your personal realities, those aspects, indeed, that you did not like. Avoid the temptation to use, instead, the word, whole-self, for the personality is given, again and this is not new material either, the greatest gift of all. You get exactly what you want to get. You create from nothing the experience that is your own, and if you do not like your experience then look within yourself and then you can change your experience, but realize also, that you are responsible for your joys and triumphs. And realize also, that the energy to create any of these realities comes from the inner self. The energy, but what you do with it is up to the individual personality.
You are not programmed. Nothing happens because it must happen. Every thought that you have now changes reality. Not only reality as you know it, but all reality. In your terms you alter the past and the future.
Consciousness is not made up of balances so much as it is made up of exquisite imbalance, and the focus of awareness is to some degree the result of these exquisite imbalances. This state of excitability, and in this state of excitability, all elements are never known because new elements are always being created. And I am not speaking of physical elements but of psychological elements of those characteristics of consciousness for even those themselves continually change and merge. You are not now what you were ten minutes earlier. You are not the same being physically, psychologically, spiritually or psychically, and ten minutes later you will be different. To deny this is to try to force consciousness into some rigid form which it cannot be ever freed and to apply rules to it that make a very neat psychological landscape.
… The ego is merely the tiny pinhead that sticks up and pierces physical reality.

([Kyle:} “Then the learning experience is no more valid for having spent more time in a depression. There is not more gained because more time has been spent.”)
Indeed, if, however, one portion of your personality has not learned from the experience, other portions may well, indeed, learn. And while one portion of your personality is in a period of deep depression, other portions may be highly creative of which you may not be aware in the present, in your terms.
… your present thoughts, feelings and emotions not only affect you but affect your probable selves and yet ….
(To Sue.) For this one over here, no probable self is at the mercy of negative thoughts of yours.
Each consciousness has its own responsibility for those thoughts and emotions that it accepts and originates. The personality in its entirety includes, therefore, probable selves of which you are currently unaware. This does nothing to negate the validity and integrity of the self that you know. The divisions are illusions and when you wake up to yourself, to your true self, then you are aware of these other portions of your personality.
Now, in terms of growth and development and speaking now simply to get the idea across theoretically, you are working toward a time when the you that you now know will be aware of the entire personality and accept it as your identity. The whole personality is not like some super self in which you are lost, in which the identity that you know is gone. You must simply accept the fact for now until your own experience begins to prove it more and more. That the inner identity, that you, is far more than you presently realize, and the best way to work toward such realization is to accept the self that you are now, as you are. To feel the movement of the spontaneous self.
You are presently within one system of reality, one probable reality, the reality that you now know and form physically. Now within that one reality you have reincarnational selves, they belong within the concept of that existence. All probable systems do not have reincarnational existences. Some do and some do not, so that these exist only here, as far as you are concerned for the moment.
And I know I am only going to confuse you, but if you have probable selves then you know there are probable universes and probable earths and probable histories of your earth and you see what this is going to do to your concept of reincarnation as you now hold it. So, within the system that you know, you also have probable reincarnational selves within those probable historical earths. Now, this does nothing to deny the basic integrity nor validity of what you may prefer to call the soul. It simply means that the inner self also is far more creative, far richer, and far varied and much different than you originally supposed.
… remember you call this your universe and your reality and it is indeed, for you form it and yet within you is also the knowledge of other great experiments that are being tried. And other probable systems are aware of the experiments that you are trying, and in your terms and I am speaking now in your terms only which to some extent means that I am hedging the fence, other civilizations have gone your route, some have failed. In your terms, the inhabitants of some earths, however, have succeeded very well and your future, in your terms, is not set.
You can follow any road that you chose, but until each individual realizes that he practically forms his own personal life, and has a part in the mass formation of reality that you know it, then there is much learning ahead for this is a lesson you are meant to learn within physical reality.
You are meant to judge physical reality. You are meant to realize the physical reality is a materialization of your thoughts and feelings and images. You are meant to realize that the inner self forms that world. You cannot be allowed, in your terms, to go into other dimensions until you understand the power of your thought and subjective feelings. So, even when you think you destroy, you destroy nothing. And when you think that you kill, you kill nothing. And when you imagine that you can destroy a reality, you can only destroy a reality as you know it, the reality itself will continue to exist.
You think a thought and because you cannot follow it you think it disappears and you wonder where it has gone; has it fallen off some invisible cliff within your mind? But, because you cannot follow the thought, and no longer perceive it, because you can no longer hold it in consciousness, does not mean that that thought no longer exists and does not have a reality of its own, for it does indeed. And if a world escapes you and you cannot follow it and you think it has been destroyed, then the same thing applies to the world as to the thought. It continues to exist.
