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.
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 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.
The theme of “being and doing” is frequently mentioned in many of the Confederation’s communications with Earth. Ryan and Jeremy discuss how to understand this theme and what it reflects about the nature of the Creation and reality. While it is easy to understand how service in the world rests upon “doing,” in other words, acting in the world, it takes a little more seeking to figure out what it might mean to say that the very fact of our existence is itself a service.
Of course, our beingness is the grounds for any doing, but those of the Confederation make it plain that it is simply our passive beingness that serves by imbuing the planet and events in which we participate with the vibration we radiate. Therefore, the conversation weighs what it might mean to better understand our “instruments” on their own terms and not simply in light of the fruits it generates in the socially constructed domain of activity. The more aware we are of our true nature that rests in that passive beingness state, the better the relationship we can have with those unconscious but powerful and creative parts of our entire self. Meditation tees us up for just that kind of inquiry into the self, these forays into the dark but fecund mystery of the spirit complex and intelligent infinity, that build our faith in our polarity and the full breadth of what we bring to others.
Ryan and Jeremy discuss a Hatonn session from 1982 focusing on the experiences of others and how to relate to them without confusing our path with theirs. It can be difficult to understand the pain and actions of others, but we often do not help by attempting to teach those specific truths and lessons we’ve learned. According to this Law of One philosophy, other selves are best helped by meeting them where they are, freely gifting them the care, respect, and love they need to learn their own lessons and walk their unique path back to the Creator. This inability to directly translate our life experiences to another’s is a good lesson in the reflective nature of other selves, showing us just how much we ourselves trust in our own belief system. By giving our other selves room and freedom to explore their own journey, we receive inimitable insights into the infinite variety of consciousness involved in one Creator encountering another in the illusion.
Happy new year, other selves! Nithin joins Jeremy on the last day of 2022 to explore a Q’uo session from early in their contact with the L/L Research circle. Those of Q’uo distinguish the outer forms of spiritual practice from the love that motivates them, urging the seeker to touch into the heart to find their bearing. Looking outside the self to things such as prophecy, tarot, or even channeling will never provide a foundation or orientation for authentic seeking of the Creator, since those phenomena are the fruits of past love, only valuable to the extent they reflect the love we can find within ourselves in the present. The genuine seeker relies ultimately on nothing but the dim star of hope lit by the heart, learning how love is always manifested as a dynamic of the moment and never fully captured in the things of the world.
Please note that we had some recording difficulties this time through so audio may sound a bit wonky. Also, we discussed a Hatonn session from 1976 before the Q’uo session that dealt with the spiritual significance of the new year, but that recording was lost. The reference to the “symbolism of life” at the beginning of the episode refers to that conversation.
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.
