Ryan and Jeremy return from an unexpected hiatus to discuss oppositional forces encountered on the spiritual path. Q’uo reminds us that all that challenges and frightens us originates from our own distortions and biased perceptions, whether it is experienced as other than self or as self. Since all is self, polarization must involve a way of opening one’s heart to these aspects that are hard to accept. As we recover these unaccepted portions of self and integrate them, we increasingly identify with a deeper self, a self we do not direct but rather with which we learn to cooperate.
This deeper self we build a relationship with through work in consciousness is closer to the truth of our unity with all other selves. In finding compassion for the self and its rough spots within, we find the strength and confidence to extend love and patience to others, despite their flaws and the buttons they push in us. By being willing to feel the pain we encounter instead of avoiding it, we discover that it’s the same pain others feel, that it connects us. Instead of using negative encounters as an excuse to give up on seeking, we can use them to lovingly incorporate into our heart each thread of the Creator’s love we come across in our lives.
Happy Wednesday, other selves! On this episode, Ryan jumps back on the mic for another romp through the Confederation philosophy’s finer points, this time focusing on a Q’uo session from 1989 dealing with the idea of the higher self. Jeremy and Ryan work through half of the session, talking about the concept of true simultaneity, the drama of polarity through sixth density, and the nature of the higher self as a gift from ourselves so crucial to our continued evolution.
We will pick up the rest of the session next time as Q’uo bridges the gap between the higher self and the magical personality, that invocation of the higher self in our waking consciousness. As always, let us know how we’re doing!
Happy one year anniversary of the inaudible podcast, other selves! On this episode, Ryan and Jeremy discuss the differences (and similarities) between the scientific understanding of reality and the spiritual understanding of reality. This takes us into the way scientific progress is marshaled to political and practical ends that reflect our spiritual immaturity. However, if we recognize that all narratives of reality are limited, we can learn how to adopt and discard narratives to suit our higher, spiritual ends. Spiritual discipline allows us to maintain a concept of self that is not fixed to one narrative, making it possible for us to transcend limitations without losing ourselves in the process.
Happy Ides of March, other selves! On this episode, Ryan and Jeremy review a 2005 session where Q’uo addresses the idea of our spiritual guidance system, how to establish contact with it, and how to think about it in one’s life. This includes formal practices such as automatic writing as well as more fleeting expressions like synchronicities and dreams. We’ll discuss this more intuitive way to come into a relationship with one’s evolution as well as the similarities of contacting one’s guidance with making contact through channeling.
Happy Wednesday, other selves! Ryan returns for another doozy of an episode, as he and Jeremy dive into a Q’uo session dealing with the nature of the spirit. What is the spirit complex in the mind/body/spirit complex model? What makes it complex, and why does that matter? What is the connection between spirit and Confederation concepts like intelligent infinity, investiture, the present moment, desire, and polarization? Prepare for more barely intelligible digressions from Jeremy and more heartwarming stories from Ryan as we ponder the function and nature of that most intangible of metaphysical topics.
Happy Wednesday, other selves! This episode Jeremy is joined by Nithin Reddy to discuss the Confederation’s concept of the present moment and finding love within it. The present moment is the location for our most potent emotional experiences and our ability to affirm or change our polarity. Perhaps most mysteriously, Ra assures us that the gateway to intelligent infinity lies in this present moment. We’ll discuss the relationship of time, emotion, risk of pain, and opportunity for transformation with an eye towards bringing more awareness and presence to this nexus of spiritual evolution that is perpetually available right now. As always, let us know how we’re doing!
Happy New Year, other selves! Ryan and I are excited to jump back into inaudible in 2022 after a month or so break. Much like we discuss catalyst working in this episode, we’re revisiting old material. In episode 22 we briefly touched on a Q’uo session to discuss how to work with difficult things in life, but this excerpt is grounded in a much more wide-ranging discussion of the function of attitude in the processing of catalyst.
In this episode, we start from the very beginning of the session to discuss the nature of how our truly challenging lessons manifest piece by piece in our awareness over time. The attitude we hold sets us up for the way we will use these often painful and confusing experiences. As we discipline the personality, we take down the barriers to the fears that drove our past attitudes, exercise our faith, and discover the latent power available within us for service — service to other selves, to our own growth, and to the planet itself. It is in the emotions we feel, not the specific details of the events that cause them, that our work of acceptance and balancing really occurs.
Happy Tuesday, other selves! Today’s episode discusses the Confederation’s concept of the “discipline of the personality”. What do they mean by discipline? What role does this discipline play in our work with our personality shells? In what sense is this discipline part of our overall spiritual evolution? We’ll answer these questions and more as we take a very incomplete start at discussing this vast topic. As always, let us know how we’re doing!
