Q and A
Joshiah: Well, now. Well, once again, allow us to express our gratitude for being invited back into your vibrational level. And before we begin we would, once again, remind you that the entities that are with us on this afternoon remain within this sacred space that you have created and the opportunity for you to be involved in that silent communication, that telepathic exchange or interaction with those energies exists. You have but to express the intent. And once again, you will find it quite easy to alter your consciousness, to enter into that so-called meditative state. You have but to close your eyes and express the intent and that opportunity most certainly exists for each of you.
Now. You exist in a conscious state in this vibrational level that you believe is the most important state, that is the ultimate state of existence. That when you’re in the so-called meditative states or dream states that you are in what you refer to as an altered state of reality, an altered state of consciousness, that you seemingly have no control over, or at least do not have the control over from your mental capacity that you had when you were in your so-called wide-awake conscious state. And yet, it’s in those altered states of consciousness that you indeed are much more in touch of that portion that you refer to as your higher self.
Now. We suggested that that higher self creates this reality that you desire based upon the beliefs that you hold so that the experiences that occur within your so-called awake consciousness state are experiences that are a reflection of your beliefs and that are created by that so-called higher self, that so-called spark of consciousness that has the capacity to create. And once again, this creates without judgment.
You see, when you are in your conscious state you have various aspects of what’s right and what’s wrong. They are truly human consciousness concepts. And they are concepts that you hold in your consciousness state in order to have the ability to function within your so-called societies, the rules and regulations that you indeed participate in and that you perpetuate in order to [state,] if you wish, your societal beliefs in order to create a reality that’s based upon the beliefs that you hold.
And so, you believe that there’s a good or bad, that there’s a right or a wrong, absolutely. And individuals who don’t hold that concept in their conscious state are considered to be individuals who have and operate without a consciousness. Individuals who don’t feel that twinge of what’s right or what’s wrong. And indeed, once again, in your conscious state it assists you in functioning, it assists you in existing in coexistence that allows you to create the realities that you desire so that you can experience the emotions and the feelings.
Where you are involved in relationships on a one-on-one basis, many individuals believe that as a result of that interaction that they are involved in a loving situation. And yet, that particular relationship does not reflect a loving situation but rather is an agreement or a contract. You see, when you are involved in a loving situation, with unconditional love, there are various things that you do that allow you to experience certain emotions and feelings. And you do those things quite [readily] and you do them unconditionally. And when you begin to put conditions in place, it’s no longer an act of love. It’s not that it’s wrong, it’s an understanding that it’s an agreement in order for a relationship to function, that there are indeed perimeters, limitations for you in your conscious state, like those limitations. Those limitations make this reality seem more real and more out of your capacity to alter.
And so, you like the limitations. You like to have the rules and the regulations. And when you are involved in that one-on-one relationship, and you put in place the rules and regulations, you put in place the contracts, understand that it’s not wrong. Absolutely not. But it’s not acting in what you might refer to a loving capacity.
You see, when you give to someone and you do so for the purposes of allowing them to feel joy or to feel security, for allowing them to feel intimacy, and if you do that gift by putting on conditions you’re not acting from a position of love. You see, when you put the condition on then it means that the other must fulfill a condition in order to maintain and [to] perpetuate the gift. In other words, it’s not a gift, it’s a deal.
And it’s not that deals and contracts are not necessary, absolutely not, and we’re not suggesting they’re wrong. Understand, however, that that’s not an act of love. That that’s indeed operating within an agreement and a contract to allow relationships to function within what you refer to as your societal system. And as well, when you expand that beyond the individual beliefs, and in the individual relationships, you enter into a society and you have what you refer to as what’s right and wrong. You have in place certain limitations of what is acceptable and what is not acceptable. Does that mean that that’s absolutely right or wrong? Absolutely not. It means that that particular society and the individuals who agree to participate in the beliefs of that society agree to operate within the limitations.
You can go to another society existing within the same vibrational level and find that they have absolutely opposite ideas of what’s right or wrong. Does that make one right and the other wrong? Absolutely not. For you see, from that subconsciousness portion of you that creates your reality there is no right or wrong. Right or wrong is a human consciousness concept that does not exist withinside. It exists within your conscious state.
And so, what one particular society may believe is right or wrong, another may not accept as being right or wrong at all, but they have an absolutely entirely different belief systems that [are] reflected in what they believe is right or wrong or indeed good or bad or even what you might refer to as good or evil. Human consciousness concepts.
When you are involved in the society there are various aspects of interactions that you do that reflect what you believe is right or wrong. What you hold withinside is belief systems on what is right or wrong. And those belief systems, many times, are a reflection of what you agree to participate into and what we refer to, once again, as the societal belief system. When you’re giving an individual relationship much of that can change. What the society might accept as right or wrong, individuals may not agree with. Absolutely. And yet, function within their own personal relationship and not apply what the society would suggest is right or wrong. It doesn’t make it good or bad or evil, absolutely not. It’s an agreement between two individuals involved in a relationship that allows the relationship to function within the rules and the regulations within the agreements and the contracts that they put in place.
Many individuals become involved in various relationships and believe that it’s a loving relationship and yet don’t understand what is necessary to be involved in the giving and receiving of what we refer to as unconditional love. That it’s a state of being and a state of doing. That it takes conscious effort for you to experience love in your conscious state. You understand what it is in your subconsciousness, absolutely, but to experience it in the conscious state takes a conscious effort of doing certain things, of being in a certain state of mind. Absolutely.
Many individuals are involved in a situation where they, for example, believe that there is a trust between two individuals. Now. A trust between two individuals does not necessarily mean that each individual understands absolutely that in every situation that it’s a trusting situation. You see, in order for there to be a trusting situation, there are certain elements that must be in place and if there’s [not] there, don’t put it as a trusting situation for you are doomed to fail. And to assume that it’s a trusting situation and to assume that the other involved in that particular interaction also believes it’s a trusting situation will set you up for failure as well.
You see, in order for there to be a trusting situation, first of all there must be a benefit or a loss, and the loss must be greater than the benefit. If it’s a situation where your benefit is greater than the potential loss and the potential benefit is something that is humongous, this is not a trusting situation, this is a particular business transaction, if you wish, or it may be indeed a gambling type of situation where you are spending one dollar in order for the potential of earning millions of dollars. That is not a trusting situation if you don’t win the millions of dollars, for you see, the potential gain is much larger than the potential loss.
It’s when you turn that situation around and the potential loss is greater than the potential gain, then you have a situation when you involve the potential of trust—involves the potential of trust. Does not necessarily mean at this point that you are in a trusting situation. For you see, the next step is that you must believe that the other can be trusted. If you’re involved in [a] situation where you have a potential loss that’s greater than the potential gain, but you believe that the other individual that you’re becoming involved [in] that situation with is not worthy of your trust and will not sustain that trust, then indeed you are doomed to fail, once again.
You’re setting yourself up to lose, and that’s not a trusting situation. An individual becomes involved in that and then when they lose and they suggest, “Well, I trusted that other individual,” well, you didn’t really trust them, if you didn’t believe that they could be trustworthy. And then you must solicit that trust.
You see, you really set yourself up for failure. If you’re involved in a situation, be it with a separate individual or be it with a society or a multiple individuals and you do not solicit the other’s trust, you see, the other may not believe that it’s a trusting situation, may not be concerned that it could be a potential loss to you. And if you don’t solicit that trust, then you, once again, set yourself up for failure.
If you are involved in a situation where you tell your best friend a secret that could potentially bring harm to you in some manner, be it either emotional or indeed be it materialistic, if you don’t solicit the other’s trust before you tell them that particular secret then the other doesn’t understand that it’s a trusting situation. They may not believe that it’s all that important. They may not understand that it can have an impact upon your emotional being. And therefore, they don’t apply the same type of rules and regulations, the same type of agreements and contracts that you would if you were in a trusting situation, and if you solicited that other’s confidentiality. And so, you must indeed be explicit that it’s a potential trusting situation.
And so, if those particular elements are not in place, if you don’t have the potential loss that’s greater than the potential gain, if you don’t believe that the other can be trusted, and if you don’t solicit that trust, then you’re not involved in a trusting situation and you’re setting yourself up to feel failure. You’re setting yourself up to feel like you’re not deserving. You’re setting yourself up to indeed believe that you can’t be trusted or that the other can’t be trusted or that you can’t be trusting anything or anyone.
And so, you become involved in the situation with another individual that you believe is a loving exchange, a loving relationship. And when you become intimate with that other individual and you begin to allow yourself to be vulnerable, but the other individual, indeed, is not returning and reciprocating that love, then you set yourself up for failure because you believe through that expression of intimacy that you, indeed, by being vulnerable, are putting yourself in a trusting situation. And if you don’t believe that the other is trustworthy, or if you don’t solicit the other’s trust, then you, once again, are setting yourself up for failure, if you’re not involved in a loving situation. For [even in your] loving situation in your conscious state you solicit the other’s trust. You give the other, you give the other, that understanding. You give the other that unconditional gift of feeling security by soliciting the trust.
And so, what’s right or wrong, or what’s good or bad, [wondering if you’re] involved in a trusting situation, those are all consciousness concepts. Not something that comes from your subconsciousness but something that you have the capacity to consciously be involved in, to consciously participate in, to consciously choose not to participate in. And as we suggested earlier, many times what’s right or wrong, or good or evil, what may be or may not be a trusting situation, varies from one society to another. It doesn’t mean that one society’s way or belief systems are superior to the other’s, absolutely not. It simply means that they’re different.
And those differences, many times, result in conflicts because individuals in your conscious state will not grant the others the right to be different. Will not give that unconditional love that allows the others to feel security or joy, where the ability to be different and to be accepted, even with the differences.
Now. If you have any questions for us we would be willing to attempt to answer them.
Questioner: Doesn’t look like there’s any questions.
Joshiah: That was very interesting. Many had questions. Maybe we’ve addressed some of those questions. And if you were to interact with each other you will find that in our message today we indeed did address some questions that several individuals had.
Now. We would like to suggest to each of you that each of you has within you the capacity for absolute and unconditional love. Not only have the capacity but indeed create this reality from that platform of absolute and unconditional love. Even those situations that you’re involved in that you believe are, you’d [likely would] refer to as the evil situations, if you wish, the situations of aggression, the situations where there is the abused. Individuals involved in that creation process are there by choice, and their creation comes from a position of absolute and unconditional love.
And if you don’t like the situation, change the belief systems. And if you change the belief systems, you will alter the reality. And in order to get glimpses of what the belief systems are pay attention to the spontaneous reactions that you have. Put in place, once again, the principles and apply the principles so that you can reflect the image that you wish to be, that’s important to you. The image, indeed, that makes you like who you are. And then you begin to love yourself more, consciously. And when that occurs you’ll begin to perceive that others look at you in a different manner. And you will begin to indeed have the capacity, not only to love others more, but to be more receptive of the love of others as well. And you will have the capacity to consciously alter your reality. Absolutely.
Well, now. We would like to, once again, express our greetings to each of you and express to you our willingness to interact and to share with each of you. We are not separated by time or space but rather by a vibrational level. Time and space are human concept illusions. They do not exist in your altered states of consciousness. And we exist within the same time and space, if you wish. You have but to express the intent and we would welcome the opportunity to interact and to share with each of you. Indeed, we learn from each of you on each opportunity that we have to interact. And we would like to express to you as well our unending support and our absolute unconditional love.
And so, until the next time that you invite us back into your vibrational level, we would wish each of you farewell, with love and with peace.
