Remember our universal source

“The inner ego, however, always identifies with its source-identity as a beloved, individualized portion of the universe.  It is aware of the universal love that is its heritage.
“It is also aware of the infinite power and strength that composes the very fabric of its being.  Through being made aware of these facts, the exterior ego can begin to feel a quicker sense of support and nourishment.  The knowledge can let it relax, let go, so that it feels its life couched and safe, and knows itself to be indeed a beloved child of the universe, both ancient and young at once, with an identity far beyond the annals of time.
“It is of great value, then, that each person remember this universal affiliation.  Such a reminder can often allow the inner self to send needed messages of strength and love through the various levels, appearing as inspiration, dreams, or simply pure bursts of feeling. The inner ego draws instant and continuous support from the universal consciousness, and the more the exterior ego keeps that fact in mind, the greater its own sense of stability, safety, and self-esteem.”

We aren't failures

“No animal considers itself a failure, obviously.  People, however, often identify with their seeming mistakes, forgetting their abilities in other directions, so that it seems that they are misfits in the universe, or in the world.  The conscious mind can indeed have such thoughts because it so often tries to solve all problems on its own, until it begins to feel frightened, overburdened, and a failure in its own eyes.”

A beautiful Seth thought for the day

“Each person is a vital, conscious portion of the universe.  Each person’s existence sends its own ripples throughout time.  The universe is conscious at every conceivable point of itself.  Each being is an individualized segment of the universe; then, in human terms, each person is a beloved individual, formed with infinite care and love, uniquely gifted with a life like no other.”

Communicating with the Inner Ego

“Most people do not realize that they can indeed have access to this inner awareness.  This inner ego or inner self should not be thought of as superior to your ordinary mind. It should not be thought of, really, as something separate from your ordinary mind.  Your ego and your ordinary consciousness bring into focus all of your physical experiences, and make possible the brilliant preciseness of physical experience.
“It is true that physical life represents only one condition of being. You have other kinds of existence, then. The conscious mind is one brilliant segment of your larger consciousness, but it is composed of the same universal energy and vitality that composes all consciousness.  There are ways of communicating with the inner ego or inner self, however, and we will discuss some of these very shortly.  It is important, again, to remember that this inner ego or inner self uses a process that is far swifter than reasoning.”

Inner Ego

Seth presents a relatively simple way to view our individuated consciousness ... the notion of an outward looking ego (one that is part of the manifested physical moment of experience, that observes these moments of experience and that makes choices, etc.) and an Inner Ego that generates our physical presence and these moments of physical experience (something like the ACIM dreamer of the dream).

Lazaris has drawn an analogy with our computer technology.  In this analogy, our conscious (outer) ego is the input/output (I/O) system (screen, keyboard, etc.).  The Inner Ego is the program running on the computer which takes commands from the I/O system and communicates with All That Is through the cosmic internet.

“You usually think of your conscious mind as your ego.  It is directed toward action in physical life. Many schools of thought seem to have the curious ideas that the ego is inferior to other portions of the self, or “selfish”, and imagine it to be definitely of a lower quality than the inner self, or the soul.
“In the first place, it is really impossible to separate portions of the self, and we make such distinctions only in an effort to explain the many facets of the personality.  It is generally understood, then, that you do have an ego, directed toward exterior activity, and in those terms you also have an inner ego.  It is also conscious, and is the director of all automatic interior activity.”

Continuum of consciousness

Today’s Seth points out that everything is conscious … maybe not conscious like our waking consciousness … but from molecules on up to the body and Gaia, Milky Way, the universe, everything is conscious action manifesting to us as matter in time and space.  

This makes sense intellectually, but it’s a challenge to live with that awareness.  

Buddhist practices work to bridge the gap between waking consciousness and body mind.  Shamans bridge the same gap with the elements, species and the planet.  Kryon has emphasized that the key to contributing to the current awakening of humanity and the planet is to feel compassion … feel that connection with the planet, other humans and our ancestors (spiritual ancestors not biological).

“It is perhaps easier to imagine a continuum of consciousness, for you have a body consciousness also, and that body consciousness is itself made up of the individual consciousness of each molecule that forms all parts of the body itself.
“It is sometimes fashionable to say that men and women have conscious minds, subconscious minds, and unconscious minds – but there is no such thing as an unconscious mind.  The body consciousness is highly conscious.  You are simply not usually conscious of it. Reasoning takes time.  It deals with problem-solving – it forms an hypothesis, and then seeks to prove it by trial and error.
“If you had to use that kind of process before you could move a muscle, you would get nowhere at all, of course.  The other portions of your consciousness, then, deal with a kind of automatic thinking, and operate with a kind of knowledge that takes no time in your terms.”

Subconscious Mind

“You know that you have a conscious mind, of course.  You also possess what is often called the subconscious, and this merely consists of feelings, thoughts or experiences that are connected to your conscious mind, but would be considered excess baggage if you had to be aware of them all of the time.  Otherwise they would vie for your attention, and interfere with the present decisions that are so important.
“If you tried to hold all of those subconscious memories uppermost in your mind all of the time, then you would literally be unable to think or act in the present moment at all.  You do more or less have a certain access to your own subconscious mind, however.”

How the body views "dis-ease"

“If people become ill, it is quite fashionable to say that the immunity system has temporarily failed – yet the body itself knows that certain “dis-eases” are healthy reactions.  The body does not regard diseases as diseases, in usually understood terms.  It regards all activity as experience, as a momentary condition of life, as a balancing situation.  But it possesses a sense of wholeness and of overall integrity, for it knows that it continues to exist, though under different conditions, and it realizes that this change is as natural and necessary as the change of seasons if each individual is to continue to exist, while the earth itself possesses the nutriments necessary to the survival of physical life.”

Cellular Communication

This is absolutely amazing ... and something that science has no idea exists!!!  Yet it's so obvious when you think that the origin of our manifested moments of 3D serial time experience exists outside of time and space in a "sea" of conscious energy existing in a "spacious present".

“There is a cellular communication between or among all of earth’s living cells, as if the earth itself were one large physical body.”

The Art of Meditation

The art of meditation

Philosopher Alan Watts gets to the core meditation.

"Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment. And therefore, if you meditate for an ulterior motive — that is to say, to improve your mind, to improve your character, to be more efficient in life — you've got your eye on the future and you are not meditating!"
"The art of meditation is a way of getting into touch with reality. And the reason for it is that most civilized people are out of touch with reality because they confuse the world as it is with the world as they think about it, and talk about it, and describe it. For — on the one hand — there is the real world and — on the other — a whole system of symbols about that world which we have in our minds."
"Meditation is the way in which we come to feel our basic inseparability from the whole universe, and what that requires is that we shut up. That is to say, that we become interiorally silent and cease from the interminable chatter that goes on inside our skulls. Because you see, most of us think compulsively all the time."

Today’s Seth is an interesting take on death.  If you think about it, death (at the appropriate moment) is indeed a gift … it allows us to fully reconnect with our source selves before diving in somewhere else and it creates the space and time for others to jump in and enjoy the physical life on Gaia.  

An eternity trapped in one physical incarnation would be anybody’s definition of hell … particularly being stuck after the “lessons have been learned” and when we’re ready to expand our consciousness and cruise the Cosmos!

“It should be noted before we begin that death itself is the delivery – a deliverer – of your species and all others.  It is not negative in itself, but instead is the beginning of a different kind of positive existence.  It prunes the planet, so to speak, so that there is a room and time for all, energy and food for all.  Because of death, life is possible, so these two seemingly opposite qualities are simply different versions of the same phenomena.”

Life is magical

I don't know about you, but I sure tend to over-think things!  Life really is magical ... if we let it happen!

“The same hidden ability that promotes your body’s health and vitality also fulfills and preserves the world in general.  All of this is done playfully, and yet emerges with the greatest display of order and design.
“When you become too serious you overwork your intellect and tire your body, for then it seems that your entire life depends upon the reasoning of your intellect alone.  Instead, of course, your intellectual abilities are supported and promoted by that inner mixture of spontaneity and order that so magically combine to form both your reality and the reality of the world.”

Different kinds of knowledge

Here’s Seth’s deep thought for the day.

When you read this, it becomes readily apparent how little we “know” or understand with our fixation on materialism and technology.  The avatars of old “knew” more than us … they could do things we would consider magic, defying the laws of physics.

Love is right up there in terms of something magical and equally unknowable intellectually!

“You think, for example, without consciously knowing how you do so, and you speak long sentences without consciously being aware at the beginning of the sentence what the conclusion will be.
“This does not mean that you must forever remain in ignorance, but it does mean that there are different kinds of knowledge, and that all of your information does not come by reasoning alone.  You grew from a fetus into an adult, for instance, so obviously, some part of you does know how to perform such an amazing activity as the growth and care of the physical body.  The reasoning mind alone, however, cannot by itself grow even the smallest cell, or activate the life of even one molecule, yet the growth and maintenance of the body is constant.”
