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.
Nithin Ready and Jeremy discuss a 2008 Q’uo session on the subject of processing and distilling catalyst. What about our experiences is the lesson on which we’re working? Conversely, what about our experiences needs to be let go and not belabored? How do we deal with our triggered feelings in the moment when catalytic situations first present? Q’uo shares some ideas on the skills involved in the personal and delicate matter of exercising compassionate discernment in facing the events of our lives and balancing their aftermath. Nithin and Jeremy tease apart the nuances of Q’uo’s message, including the role our guidance and other synchronicities play as well as the benefits of a meditative approach as we discuss the “diet of catalyst” in our lives.
Happy Thursday, other selves! Coming off his own recent experiences working with the heart or green-ray energy center (or chakra), Jeremy joins Ryan to discuss a rare 1991 appearance of Hatonn in the L/L Research meditation circle.
While the heart is a vital center in the energy body — so important that those of Ra call it a “springboard” to blue ray and beyond — it also is where we store all our self-judgments and failures. The heart’s wisdom is discovered in the forgiveness and healing of its contents, bringing the possibility of balance to all centers in the energy body. Gratitude is the key to keeping the heart open at a steady state, and that paves the way for the blue-ray communication that avoids intellectualization in favor of adaptiveness, fearlessness, generosity, and endless hope. Working with these energies over time, we build the habits necessary to fall in love with our whole selves, making possible the creative and nimble possibilities of service that flow from the open heart.
Happy Tuesday, other selves! In this episode, Ryan and I discuss the final two centers and their mystical, mysterious nature. We then turn to a Q’uo transcript that discusses emotions and their purpose on the evolutionary path. We only get about halfway through reading it, but there is a tie-in between indigo ray and what those of Q’uo call the “way of wisdom” that attempts to transcend emotion. This more intellectual approach to work in consciousness is distinguished from the “way of the open heart” that faces emotions head-on. Next week, we’ll finish analyzing the transcript and focus on the purification of these emotions.
As always, thanks for listening, and drop us a line if you have feedback for us of any kind!
Sorry so late, but I was on vacation! Now that I’m back, I can share last weeks episode featuring Ryan and I recapping the first three energy centers and tying them into the next two centers. Green ray is the seat of compassionate, universal love as well as the shadow self. We delve into a Q’uo transcript that addresses the refining of emotions within the green ray heart center. We finish on the blue ray center, the center of honest communication, and discuss how it fits into the development of an entity. As always, give us your feedback, and thanks for listening!
Happy Wednesday, other selves! On this episode, Ryan and I start our exploration of the body’s energy system, what are often called the chakras. Using Confederation sources as our guide, we tackle the first three energy centers in the body: red ray, orange ray, and yellow ray. While many who aspire to spiritual or mystical experience prefer the higher chakras, it is in the lower three chakras that many of our deepest and most tangibly workable issues make themselves available to us. Therefore, any hope of getting to balanced green-ray, blue-ray, or indigo-ray relies on balancing at these more basic centers so the Creator’s energy can rise up through our system with minimum distortion.
Thanks for listening, and let us know how we’re doing! We got the episode out a little late, but we’re committed to hitting a weekly cadence whenever possible, so thanks for your patience as well.
