They say, “It’s always darkest just before the dawn.” If this is true then we are on the brink of a great breakthrough. It doesn’t make sense to continually talk about how bad things are, how ruthless people are, how the world is turning into garbage. This only sets the stage for ripples of negative vibrations to permeate all and everything. What use is that? That will only make things worse.

With the right energy set forth, we can move mountains and see a brighter day on the other side. Here is a chapter from Robert’s latest book, Conversations With All Self. This chapter on Governance outlines the path forward for a more awakened society.

 

Chapter – 47
Governance Is a Form of Soulfulness – 8/9/19
RP: I got an inspiration yesterday and I’m wondering if it was from
you, or from some other ‘enlightened’ source.
AS: I know the bit you’re talking about. It was not directly from me,
though all inspiration entering your mind does come from me, effectively.
In this case, it was from Orange in the year 500.
RP: That’s cool. Why didn’t she announce herself?
AS: It is not always her way—or mine—to do that. Nevertheless,
you sensed it was from a deeper source than your mind. Orange does
send her regards, by the way. And of course, if you wish you can
dialogue directly with her at any time.
RP: OK. I had forgotten I could do that—you and I have been so
busy with our stuff. Well, so I’ll repeat my download here for the record.
You can tell me if I got it right.
I have long believed that humanity is evolving towards a more
‘socialistic’ form of society. But I’ve wondered how that could exist
in a way that it still encourages entrepreneurs—sort of capitalistic
socialism. It seems like pure socialism, giving every citizen an equal
share in wealth, would take the incentive out of monetary creativity; it
would restrict productivity. There would be no energy to push the
envelop of development—in technology, economics, exploration, art,
sports and so on.
AS: I understand your concern. It is an impediment in the minds of
many—though there is much more creativity in the future than now, I
must say. Let me just say that ‘society’ is already socialistic, by
definition and origin; it is an organism, blending the functions of all
individual parts within a coherent whole. I can elaborate on that later.
But please continue describing your idea first.
RP: Well, my thought was that socialism doesn’t have to
mean limitation. Society and income distribution could be structured
in a way to facilitate the ‘common good’ on a flexible basis. For instance—
and here’s the crux of the idea—if an entrepreneur had
some great idea, she or he could apply to the government for an
exemption from the ‘equal-income’ rule. In a future where many
more people were ‘awakened’ to the Oneness in us all, a rapid, widespread
understanding of unselfish motives would facilitate any
‘investment’ activity.
Under the exemption, creative individuals could utilize whatever
financial resources they needed to get a job done. They could then
have the incentive to ‘make money’ and be rewarded within the field
of the project, for whatever time it required. The only stipulation
would be that the income would not accrue in a separative manner,
cutting off the flow within the society as a whole. I believe it could be
designed so that the entrepreneur would enjoy the benefits of her or
his endeavor without handicapping others at large. Of course, I
haven’t imagined all the details. But I have a feeling it might be
workable. (more…)

Absorbed in deep contemplation, down beyond the chatter of life, I find that space where silence reigns and darkness turns to light. Where peace moves in, on golden threads, caressing my numinous heart. The current of multi-dimensions rushes through, dancing eternity’s infinite beat. I’m lost, away from the world I’ve known, and rapt in the newness of the world I’ve been born out of, from the beginning of time. Where time never exists.

And then a voice peeks through, with a hushed whisper of recognition. Not a sound it makes, but a silent nod of familiarity. It speaks in realizations, and I can understand every meaning, though those meanings come with no words, it’s knowing just the same. It plays with my heart, and the strings pluck magic from the air. I am complete in this silent conversation. All manner of things unfold before me. It is beyond awe. For awe has never felt a thing like this.

 

Forty-seven years ago I started down the road of meditation practice. It has taken me on many journeys and has saved me from disillusionment, depression, anxiety, and the like. It has been a close friend, especially in those times of need, but most certainly in all times. One of the benefits of meditation, as teachers will tell you, is the place of peace that it can immerse you in. Though a quieted mind is one of the benefits of this peace there also arises a voice out of the silence that has no sound and no thought. It is an intuitive connection to the higher essence of you, that has animated the physical being of YOU. As we are now, this essence sits behind a veil of unknowing. This unknowing keeps the physical and mental constructs of your being from seeing the truth behind the veil. Meditation can lift that veil and introduce you to the Source that animates you and knows all that is. Of course, there are many teachings and practices that are part of the cornerstone of this connection with Source, but with some gentle love applied to yourself and the information given below, we can start the journey of removing the illusion of life and fulfill our Soul’s dream of immersion into the reality of Source. Let’s all start to have a conversation with our All-Self. 

Robert’s Conversation with All-Self #33 – 05/15/19

Space for Healing

RP: Good afternoon, AS. It’s comforting to know that you are present at any time I want to contact you. In fact, I am motivated to have these conversations largely as a form of comfort for me—at least today. I’m feeling rather fragile right now. In part, it has to do with my credit card being hacked, having to deal with a bunch of fraudulent charges, and all the complications that go with that. In any case, thank you for being there.

AS: Wouldn’t you be disappointed if I was totally silent all of a sudden—but no. … just ‘messing’ with you, as they say. I’m happy to be here with you—any time. Bear in mind that for many of your compatriot humans there is no recourse such as you have. They do not know they could have access to their own soul. It is a sad thing. You are blessed, friend, to have come to this awareness and connection. I am blessed by this connection as well.

RP: Wow. I never thought about people in general not having access to their own souls. Is that just because they don’t know and haven’t tried?

AS: Yes. There is a lot of disbelief out there, along with all the ‘beliefs’ people have. In fact, the two are intimate twins. If you place your mind in the hands of a belief system, you immediately take on the spectrum of everything opposite to it. In the thrall of any belief, you are also subject to doubt and fear—to wit, that the contrary condition may exist. Belief is designed—by the mind—to counter disbelief.

And so, there is ‘no soul’ for many individual minds in the world today. Science generally disallows its existence. Philosophies and religions do not offer much solace either. For many of them, the soul is a remote or ephemeral ghost that plays no active role in their lives; it comes to account only at the time of death, if that. And Buddhists take any expression of ‘self’ or soul as a mere temporary assemblage of memories and impressions upon the surface of living.

There is much misunderstanding about the soul. You have studied this subject a great deal and I’m sure you know what I’m telling you. For the vast majority of humans, ‘soul’ is nothing much more than a word, like ‘god’ or ‘spirit’. It does not carry the sense of a living identity that can participate, say, in a dialogue. It is often seen as just a quality of being that may provoke some small degree of curiosity, but it does not move the person to investigate within himself or herself.

RP: Well, that is indeed a sad situation. Why am I so privileged to have this special relationship with you? Am I just lucky? Or, in my more pessimistic attitude, am I just deluded to think I have you talking to me? I may just be volleying words back and forth in my mind. (more…)
