Possibilities and our desires
From DeMarco, Frank. Rita's World Vol 2: A View from the Non-Physical (Kindle Location 3850). Rainbow Ridge Books. Kindle Edition".
(Q) I'm not sure I know where we're going. Nothing new there! If I had a more analytical mind and a more industrious nature, I would be searching the material for the right questions to ask, in order to illuminate the underlying issues. Who has ever had a better resource than our working relationship, Rita? But I don't really do much more than transmit what I get.
(A) Worthwhile in itself.
(Q) Sure, but not what I would like to be able to do.
(A) Nothing anybody does is what they wantto do; more like what they cando within a range of possibilities. Happy the people whose range of possibilities covers their desires.
(Q) I can imagine people objecting to this idea.
(A) Name three things (as you always say) that couldn'tbe objected to.
(A) In fact, people's reaction to any given input could be considered to be an example of the difference between their range of possibilities and their preferences. If they like it, they adopt it. If they don't, they change, or they reject it, or they search for a way to renegotiate reality, call it.
(Q) They try to square the circle.
(A) Often successfully. It is in that attempt to renegotiate reality that change occurs. Adaptation. Progress, so called. Change, anyway. (There is no real such thing as "progress" if you mean gain without forfeit.)
(Q) Go on, then.
(A) Not at this time. It is difficult to explain to you, but different times allow different concepts. You could look at it that "you have to be ready" for certain information, but that is only to treat a universal as if it hinged upon the individual. And, well, that is true as well, but here the emphasis is, simply, at this timefor whatever reasons you like - your inability to add to context, or a wider disparity between context and content - I can't get across to you certain concepts. But this is no big deal, as you would say, because the time that is wrong for some things is always right for other things.
(Q) Which is why the Seth material came to the culture in the 1970s and not the 1870s, say?
(A) You can't build the pyramids from the top down.
(Q) I understand that. Foundations must be in place before superstructures can be added.
(A) Of course. The analogy is too limited, however, because what is a foundation-stone for one thing may be a capstone for another, and a gargoyle for a third. Simultaneously.
