Episode 32: The Higher Self

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!

Episode 31: Criticism

Joseph Dartez steps in as Jeremy’s cohost to tackle the subject of criticism. When is critique a form of service to others? How do we account for our own feelings, ulterior motives, distortions and biases in our communication to others? What kinds of spiritual principles are involved in a human way to register our reflections to others? How is this complicated when third parties are involved? Joseph and Jeremy will take a stroll through all of these topics and more as we wrestle with the positive and negative characteristics of criticism.

Episode 30: How to Serve Others

Happy Tuesday, other selves! Nithin Ready joins Jeremy on this episode to discuss a variety of concerns surrounding how we serve our fellow humans. Service with respect for the free will of others requires all of our resources: our creativity, our full hearts, and even our imagination. Sometimes it is not our service that is needed at all, or perhaps not the service we planned on offering, both situations calling for great discernment and discipline. Or the service can go awry and teach us something we didn’t expect. We can make ourselves ready to respond best to situations through practicing our connection with our deeper self so that expressing faith, love, and patience become more natural and radiant.

Episode 29: Scientific vs. Spiritual Understanding

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.

Episode 28: Guidance

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.

Episode 27: The Spirit Complex, Part 2

Happy Wednesday, other selves! On this episode, Ryan and Jeremy return to that 1991 Q’uo session on the spirit complex and the soul to finish their read-through and analysis. Jeremy gives a brief synopsis of the ground covered last episode, returning to a passage near the beginning of the session with good advice on how to interpret and think about Confederation information. Then we pick up where we had left off, rounding out Q’uo’s discussion of the spirit complex and its role in the sometimes painful lessons of love and acceptance involved in spiritual evolution. Q’uo then moves on to concept of the soul, which they seem to use to refer to our totality as entities. There’s an interesting part at the end about learning to love without judgment or criticism. As always, let us know how we’re doing!

Episode 26: The Spirit Complex, Part 1

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.

Episode 23: Love, Fear, and Projection

On this episode, Ryan and Jeremy return to the Q’uo transcript they briefly touched on last episode to delve deeper into the concept of mental projection. Q’uo speaks about (what we call) love and fear as two poles of the same continuum of the Creator instead of as two completely opposed concepts. The unity of this continuum gives us ample opportunities to make the polarizing choice in the present moment, where all our power and agency truly lies. In this way we can more clearly recognize the power of our own thinking–more specifically, how our mental projections of self into the past and future can serve constructive ends or further confuse us.

Episode 6: Good, Evil, and Polarity

Happy Tuesday, other selves! On this episode, Ryan and I discuss the Confederation’s view of good and evil. How do these cosmic concepts relate to the polarity between service to others and service to self? We mostly spend the whole episode going on tangents related to morality, ethics, and the role the individual plays in all of this. Thanks for listening and let us know how we’re doing!

Episode 2: Polarity, the Choice, and Free Will

Happy Tuesday, other selves! Today’s episode captures Ryan and me in yet another free-wheeling conversation focusing on the concept of polarity and how the seminal choice in third density relates to our spiritual evolution. Because it’s off the cuff, don’t take it too seriously — we’re trying to convey an attitude about how to seek the Creator, and the details are less important than the vibes. As always, feel free to leave us feedback, and thanks for listening!
