Responding to the proliferation of warfare on the planet recently, Nithin and Jeremy analyze a post-9/11 Q’uo session discussing bellicosity and peace. The principle addresses several biological, cultural, spiritual, and philosophical factors that make not just our people but past third density populations in our system so warlike while also suggesting an appreciation for war’s intense potential for catalysis. Those of Q’uo direct us to look within at our own attitudes and quality of seeking so that we can discover not just the ideal of peace but how to live it and thereby radiate it to the entire planet. It is this personal commitment to unconditional peace and the sacrifices it may entail that help us confront the spiritual root causes of conflict.
Dr. Stephen Tyman joins Jeremy for a conversation about the problem of evil and its relationship to the Confederation’s concept of polarized seeking. Steve gives an introduction to how evil has been historically regarded, ranging from a notion of evil as a mere absence of good to the idea of evil as a positive value diametrically opposed to good. They analyze the character and recognizable traits of service-to-self other selves in psychological, spiritual, political, and philosophical aspects, including how service-to-others seekers might relate to those of the opposite polarity.
Apologies for the diminished audio quality.

After a few thoughts on how seekers think about careers, Nithin and Jeremy discuss the nature and function of intuition and how it relates to other aspects of mind. They delve into a 1986 Laleema transcript that addresses intuition and intellectual analysis, comparing them to listening and speaking, respectively. Both are required, and only the balance between the two can help one to reach the true goal: the Creator.
It is in incarnation that we get the mixture right because our lessons become firmly grounded in the lasting consequence of making one choice rather than another. Intellectual analysis in particular can help one discern which intuitions are genuine insight and which are expressions of imbalanced emotions; even skepticism and doubt can serve the discovery of genuine faith. This faith, coupled with will, constitute the heart of seeking, Laleema says, allowing us to discover resources beyond ourselves bringing to fruition our recovery of our true identity as the Creator.

On this very special fiftieth episode, we have assembled the High Altitude Receiving Center (HARC) Circle, the current channeling body of the Other Selves Working Group , for a conversation on the nature, purpose, and frontiers of channeling in the tradition of the Confederation of Planets in Service to the One Infinite Creator. Nithin and Jeremy welcome founding Working Group member and senior HARC Circle channel Dr. Stephen Tyman to discuss channeling and the recent Fourth Channeling Intensive they participated in.
In this wide ranging discussion, the three instruments discuss the concepts of channeling and tuning consciousness from the ground up. Steve details the concerns that go into the preparation and dedication of the self to serve as an instrument in a safe, protected, and spiritually salutary manner, not denying the pitfalls and increased catalyst. They talk about some of the practices and approaches they use in their circle, including how they think about the instrument’s responsibility and role in the messaging. The recently released eleven sessions recorded in June at the intensive are also addressed along with the finer points of these channeling experiences and where the Working Group may go from here.
Nithin and Jeremy discuss a 1999 Q’uo session discussing the individual self and its characteristics. We are constantly balancing between our spiritual center and this bag of biases, behaviors, and details we call our personality. As we continue to seek and grow, it is typical to feel like we’re living dual lives: a spiritual one and a “normal” one. Essentially, those of Q’uo explain that incarnation is an attempt to bring those two lives into one coherent expression of love and service through navigating the distortions inherent in manifestation.
In the imperfect curation of our total selves into a socially and personally acceptable personality, we work to accept as well as release many aspects we accrete to this self. In the present moment, we understand better our true nature as infinite, free, and secure without relying on the artifice of ego or the reductive power of intellect. We then can better appreciate the distortions of evolution in all their variety, providing one sensory organ for the Creator’s infinite exploration of itself through our unique, individual self.

On this episode, Jeremy discusses dreams and dreamwork with Jamie Liestman, long time seeker in the Law of One tradition who presented on the subject at the Working Group’s April membership meeting. Drawing from contacts with Q’uo and Ra, they explore the purpose and use of dreams in polarization and the discipline of the personality, drawing upon Confederation insight into the sometimes misunderstood role of emotional resonance in this time/space aspect of consciousness. Several techniques for working more compassionately and authentically with dreams are addressed, and this prompts some subtle but profound changes in how we think about the mind and consciousness.
Nithin joins Jeremy to discuss an oft overlooked concept in Confederation philosophy: what those of Ra described as the “sinkhole of indifference” between service-to-others and service-to-self. The issue is not simply the lack of choice on how to express one’s love and thereby continue evolving through the densities, but more tragically how refusing to make a heartfelt choices creates a feedback loop that keeps a person seeking comfort, sleep, and stasis.
How does one succeed in not succumbing to the pressure exerted by society without polarizing negatively? The pair breakdown the nuances of polarity and speculate on the nature of the sinkhole and the opportunities to serve those trapped by fear and the inability to commit to love.

Nithin and Jeremy welcome Jon Firman to discuss ritual magic and its place in practicing the Law of One philosophy. Jon tells us a bit about his experience with the western magical tradition, and we explore the Confederation’s ideas on the matter. Those of Ra confirm a definition of magic as the ability to effect changes in consciousness at will, and we discuss the issues at play in honing that personal will and the way it works with polarization, service, the Archetypal Mind, prayer, and other topics with which this podcast normally deals.

Jeremy and Nithin assemble once more to tackle one of the greatest mysteries of the Creation: balancing the cosmic force of love with the poise of wisdom. After defining these concepts, they explore how these attempts we make at balance look and feel in life, addressing their impact on the energy centers, our ethics, and our service. This balance is something even those of Ra and the Confederation have gotten wrong, and they explore how the mechanism of trial and error navigates spiritual evolution through the many temptations of excessively foolish love and manipulative, calculating wisdom of the negative path.
However, with compassionate wisdom that partakes of the deeper aspects of our intelligence and our faith, one can accept the pain and hardship of catalysis as part of the mystery of incarnate agency. This pushes us to learn how one can help the Creator guide its love and light where it might best help without such a tight attachment to a specific approach or outcome. Through reflection and inner inquiry we build a capacity to use our lessons to build wisdom with a light touch. We do not need to close our heart or foreclose on our creative ability to transcend zero sum scenarios in weighing the tough decisions stemming from service.
