Episode 48: Dreams

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.

Episode 47: The Sinkhole of Indifference

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.

Bonus: Organizing Seekers

In this bonus episode, Jeremy shares a presentation he gave at the May 2023 Other Selves Working Group general membership meeting on a model for how seekers can be organized to provide community, resources, and support in a redundant, reliable, in-depth manner.

Episode 46: Magic

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.

Episode 45: Balancing Love and Wisdom

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.

Episode 44: Orange and Yellow Ray Interactions

Nithin joins Jeremy to discuss an area of shared interest: the orange and yellow ray energy centers and the way they are worked with in our very human, very organized lives. Distinguishing between those one-on-one, orange ray relationships and the more coordinated, socially inflected yellow ray roles is not always clear. However, the more we can understand our catalyst in these two centers, the more we can open the pathway to the green ray center, the springboard to the higher energies. These issues and frameworks for approaching them are discussed in light of friendships, professional settings, power dynamics, service opportunities, and other real world situations where the effect of the cultural and personal distortions vary.

Episode 43: Purity

After taking most of February and March off, Ryan and Jeremy are back, this time continuing to explore sessions recently published on the Living Love and Light podcast by addressing Confederation commentary on the subject of purity. Hatonn and Latwii go to great lengths to distinguish their definition of purity from how it is regarded spiritually or religiously in our society. Instead of stressing purity as an adherence to rules or a removal of certain parts of ourselves, they emphasize the simple and wholesome radiation of the Creator’s light within us. The very nature of incarnation requires the admixture of elements that will seem to make us impure, yet our seeking and striving to polarize allows us to purify our intentions and render the imperfections of life moot.

Episode 42: Being and Doing

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.

Episode 41: The Paths Others Take

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.

Episode 40: Love and Its Fruits

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.
