Much of my life as an adult has been served by teachings or ideas and insights that are 'channelled' - (see 'Channelling - the Prequel' for a sketch of what I feel to be 'behind' channelling'), yet the point has always been the resonance of articulation or acceptance knowing that is ripe to unfold and be known and not a search outside oneself in accumulating information to prop up or promote a vanity of self regard.
Emmanuel's Book, The Bartholomew Books, A Course in Miracles, Raj, 'The Holy Spirit's Interpretation of the New Testament', being the most resonant for me, but there are many others. One of the newer to me sources (that I am appreciating) is Bashar, and it was on a forum page regarding Bashar that I made the following comments.
The why question is like the why not answer – it does not open to the what.
To listen within in a true willingness to receive, does not set
conditions as to the forms in which the revelation of answer or guidance
will come – it is open to God/Creation/Self
Or would be open but for the conditionings which our current beliefs
set. That God knows the way to find me – regardless of where I think I
am or what is or isn’t real – is indeed as simple as to allow and accept
and abide in truth. Not simple if we insist on protecting our
self-investments, and avoiding transformation!
As to your second part. It is easy to collect a set of ideas and weave
an Emperor’s set of clothes with them – but if in truth the ideas are
not congruent with our being – then we have attempted to ‘add to
ourselves’ rather than seeking first the truth and letting all things be
However, guidance in the way of this can mean the difference between
opening a direct trust and suffering a long and painful path of self
However, one still has to pass through fear, but one doesn’t have to reinforce fear’s perspective while doing so.
And yes – at first we don’t pass through, because fear controls our thinking without us realizing it is so.
You know how to test for truth. You stay present and you listen and feel
the nature of the fruits. You get wise to the ways you hide or avoid so
as to give no hiding place. But I am writing to the one who truly
cares. If one who doesn’t truly connect with Life wants to persist in an
illusion of their own private creation, then they will do so with or
without channeling, spirit-guides or spirituality – because to such a
mentality, all forms are given meanings that ‘please’ the ego.
I feel to accept it as a given that the ego is active as a
habit-momentum of conditioning and be wise to not feeding or reinforcing
it. Not giving it too much attention. The false is dissipated by
disregard or non-reaction. But the realization of the false is not our
judgment but the discernment of what I call the Holy Spirit. One has to
connect or receive or join with – rather than apply a template or method
from a presumed self reality.
I felt something in your post that moved me to respond. Is that not the
way the Universe works – whether apparently within us or apparently
outside in the world?
