Good evening. We are here to assist you. We are here to work with the energies of those members of humanity who wish to move forward with their lives, who wish to participate in the great upliftment of spirit and physical reality that is now being experienced on your earth plane, Terra.
We have spoken before about the concept of the shoebox. We would incorporate this material along with questions that those here this evening may have to offer as learning. Understand that a question that one asks is asked for all. So, listen carefully and you all may make a leap [in] accepting who you are.
Let us speak for a few moments on the concept of the walls you build around yourself in this shoebox idea. From our perspective, we see the large portion of the energies [are] attempting to bring in information that is revolutionary, that is expansive and that is perhaps contradictory and controversial as well. The most necessary element that you need to add to your life is something that would act as a catalyst for you to assimilate the information and initiate these ideas into the day-to-day living of your life. In other words, bring them inside the shoebox of your existence.
We will be working with you to allow you to expand the territory of the shoebox that you live in, for the shoebox defines the boundaries of information that is legitimate. It defines your perceptions, your experiences. It defines your world. Your world is as large and as complex or simple as you would design it to be.
What we would ask each of you to do is to visualize the image of the shoebox that you have. You may make it plain, you may make it elaborate, any color that you wish. It can be small, it can be large. Visualize the shoebox and place your physical being within it. Next to the physical being place inside the shoebox, place your globe. The images will come to life as we discuss with you the questions that you will all be so gracious to teach yourselves with this evening.
QUESTION: I've heard recently that as part of the change taking place on the planet today the old idea of everything being a lesson has become somewhat obsolete and that, in fact, there are no lessons anymore. From my own personal perspective I believe that growth comes through learning lessons and I don't understand how growth can continue if there are no more lessons.
PLEIADIANS: Understand that all that you hear is one entity's version. Whether they be a discarnate or incarnate entity, you are always hearing someone's version of what they believe to be true. And that holds true for we Pleiadians. You all are nearing a juncture where you would be coming in to be tested over and over and over again. The ride is going to get bumpier.
It's going to be fun because you will be like on a roller coaster. You may be up one moment peeking over the top, rising to the stars and then suddenly your stomach is way up in the air and you are on the ground. This ride would involve many so called truths. Each truth, each place you are on the roller coaster is quite real, is quite legitimate, and the information or the ride of experience that you are receiving is yours to interpret.
What you must realize is that you can get off of the roller coaster any time you wish. But you will be choosing the ride because you have something to learn. What you have to learn is that there is a portion of truth that exists within each and every one of you. Essentially, you do not need us to tell you what that truth is. We merely mirror back to you who we are and we remind you what it is that you know.
In direct answer to your question, from our perspective, all existence involves knowing. There is consciousness within all things and all consciousness is learning about its experience no matter how that consciousness is manifested. From our perspective, we do not perceive of a place of being where there [are] no lessons or learnings to be done. That is our opinion and our perspective of a story.
Now, understand that all things are true. You can bring whatever information you wish inside of your shoebox. You can design your experience. We are here to give you lessons in many ways of perception so that you form your own truth and stimulate the material and information that is stored within the cells of your being. You all are a portion of First Cause [God]. First Cause branches out and expresses itself so that it has more to bring back to its own experience. And so, from our perspective, First Cause learns much in each and every moment.
QUESTION: What is the correlation between relative truth and absolute truth?
PLEIADIANS: The absolute truth, the essence of absolute truth is the example that we have just shared with you. The greatest truth is that First Cause is within all things and it is First Cause's journey that you are all a part of and it is your challenge to realize it.
QUESTION: In trying to follow a spiritual path I'm feeling great confusion over traditional Christianity and the Bible and the truth in that, or the lack of truth in that, versus the New Age philosophy and, for example, A Course in Miracles. Which path is closer to the correct truth?
PLEIADIANS: When we spoke and said that all is true, it is our tricky way of making you think. And that is what you are learning now. You are third dimensional beings. You are thinkers. You are, on a planetary scale, learning and moving toward becoming fourth dimensional beings which are, if we were to put it into words, perceivers. You are employing the values of the third dimensional world and you are beating up on yourselves, so to speak, and chastising yourself because your life is not in one neat little compartment. If you wish to bring new information into your lives, there is a certain scrambling of data that must take place. This all goes back to the shoebox and your great need to have everything in a file compartment. The data of your existence, the outline and boundaries of who you are, are quite orderly.
When you are attempting to become more and to become greater beings, all of that data must be reshuffled, must be run and analyzed and compared to a new program. When we say that all is true, that is in essence saying to you whatever you choose to believe will indeed be true. It will be the reality that you will live your life in and you will manifest the symbolic representation of that reality within your lives. Your neighbors and your friends and the social structure that you surround yourself with will reflect that back to you.
Worlds are not solid places of being. Worlds are probable. Worlds are as flimsy as paper.
Only you do not understand this. You think that your worlds are concrete and you think that certain authoritative structures are correct and you place authority outside of yourself. The Catholic church is no more correct than any other church.
The truth that you are attempting to understand now is the absolute truth for yourself. You wish, because of how you have led your life up to now, to be told to follow a certain structure. The highest teachings in our opinion, and this is merely our opinion, are the teachings that point you to yourselves and say to you, "You are First Cause. You are a portion of the great energy. And you, yourselves are thought manifestations of what you think you are."
It is that truth, from our opinion, that we, the Pleiadian culture and many, many, many cultures, use as a primary law of existence for ourselves. What you are all learning to understand is what is true for you and how to make your world work. We would start by saying that you are the center of your world, you are the power in your world. What is it that you want? You want happiness? Do you want safety? Do you want joy? You want harmony? You want personal development? You want peace? You want abundance? You are First Cause.
This power that you have is no new thing. There are those of you who have laid in the gutter or who have been without food, been on the verge of dying and have willed something and had it manifest and thought that you were lucky. It was your desire, your calling of your own power that manifested in front of you. This is a basic law of experience.
QUESTION: You mentioned a couple of times that we choose to be here to experience. Is it, is it as simple as that? When we're disembodied we decide to come back to experience something? I just can't imagine anybody choosing to come here unless they had to do it.
PLEIADIANS: It is much more complex than merely coming here for the experience, although it is the experience that you are after. But it is not as if you are a soul roaming through the ethers with nothing to do and you decide, "Oh, I think it looks cozy down there. I think I'll make a hit on that world." It is not quite that simple.
You are a portion of an energy of an oversoul. This great being travels for its own growth through planets, through existences that you do not even comprehend, through existences that in your terms are not real because you cannot see a physical world that they could exist on. But they exist. There are worlds that exist in empty space, so to speak, that make up shapes and colors and sounds and they are quite legitimate and you have experienced these worlds.
In your roamings of being, in your decisions about where you want to go, it would be similar to getting in a car and having an unlimited bank account. In other words, you do not have to worry about how your travels would be financed. You could go wherever you chose. The only restriction is that if you are to travel the United States, you must complete the United States. You would have to go into each
State and, perhaps, spend at least one week in each. When you have finished the journey you may reflect back and say, "There's further growth that I could do in the State of Minnesota. Before I leave this journey and go to Europe with my unlimited funds, it would behoove me if I explore this area."
What is occurring on a planetary scale at this time is that all humanities, and none are exempt from this, are attempting to bridge the information that is available to them and bring it into their physical reality. You are attempting to understand and to remember and to perceive that you are a portion of a much larger entity and personality than you have previously thought that you were.
When the Christed one said to you on your planet, "You are not alone," that is what was being said to you. That is what was being triggered to be remembered. You are not alone. Not only are there those, as we represent, who come from the stars, there are those from other dimensions. It is your challenge to wake up to this, and to believe, if you so choose, in enhancing your lives with this information. For these entities are there to bridge worlds and to change the world.
QUESTION: Is there a sensation of heaven and happily ever after?
PLEIADIANS: If you so choose to believe there is, there will be. If you believe in heaven and if you believe upon your translation that you have been a most glorious being and that the pathway is at your feet, then, indeed, that will be your experience. You would create your version of heaven. You all, upon your translation, will create your version of what you think exists on the other side. The myth of heaven was to allow you to believe that something unknown could be a pleasant experience.
Think on what we have been speaking of for you are attempting to bring in much information and whenever one is attempting to bring in new information there is a reshuffling, and a release of energy that no longer fits. Trust yourself and allow yourself to live in a world that is comfortable and safe and expansive and generous and loving and would give the greatest benefit to all. Make that the boundaries of your truth and your world and you would have an easier time assimilating information.
QUESTION: Do you have some practical suggestions on a day to day basis of how to maintain our centeredness? Apparently our objective is to maintain awareness of who we are and in the chaos of goings on, we seem to lose that little thread of remembering.
PLEIADIANS: It is a portion of your challenge at this time. You forget who you are because it seems to you that it takes time to remember who you are. And it seems that you do not have enough time to bother with this all the time. And so you forget, you trick yourselves into thinking that you are not who you would like to be. It is a thought process.
If you wish to maintain greater continuity of the enlightened self, the uplifted self -- at different portions of your day inject your thoughts with an empowering affirmation or statement about this continuity. You are complicated beings. We will give an example.
You say, "Alright I'm on a new program now. Starting tomorrow morning I'm going to wake up and I'm going to make a statement to the world about who I would be and then I would make the statement again at perhaps noon and then perhaps again around sunset and then once again before I go to bed. Four times in one day." And you would do very well with this for one week or ten days in your terms.
On the eleventh day, perhaps you would forget in the morning when you woke up to say it. Then you would be getting ready for work and you would say, "Oh, I didn't say this and I'll say it very quickly." Then [at] noontime you say, "Oh, gosh, I'm so busy I don't have time. Well, I'll say it later." Suppertime comes and is gone and you haven't said it. Then you've gone to bed and you say, "Oh, well, I said it this morning, I'll say it later."
It is so easy for you because of the distortion of the element that you call time that you allow to run your lives that you miss the essence of who you are. In the moment that you would take to say, "Oh, I don't have time now" or, "I will say it later," you could have said it.
It is that simplistic. It is not a paragraph that you must read about yourselves. It is not a major commitment in the element of what you call time. It is a feeling about who you are in the moment of your awareness of that being. And it is not something that you must continuously focus on but it is something that you would intend to become a portion of your being. Just as sleeping and rising and eating are a portion of your being. You merely need to become aware and to nod your head in honor and saluting the self. The salutation to the self to become a glorious being. It is that simple.
Done on a regular basis as a portion of yourself it does not mean that your life indeed would be perfect. For, once again, we are saying to you that you are, all of you, on a roller coaster. There will be ups and downs. If you know that you are intending the honor and great development of yourself when you are going on these ups and downs you will realize that this is a portion of the growth that you are asking for. It is your challenge to love yourself and not to be critical of the self and to realize that you are designing experiences for your greatest need and growth.
The world is a symbolic world and speaks to you. It is your challenge to understand what it is that you are telling yourself. If you have teddy bears dancing in front of you we would say you are a most playful being. If you see boogie men and dragons and lizard people, then we would say, goodness, what fear are you manifesting?
Now, we are being playful but we are giving you examples because as humanities that is your way of learning. You like pictures and you like examples. You like to be able to formulate ideas within your mind and to compare. That is your way of learning. You do not at this time function through osmosis of learning. If that were the case we would not have to say a word. We would merely implant you with energy or attempt to implant you with energy.
We have fed you much information and you have been absorbing it on many levels of being. Congratulate yourselves on the great beings that you are and that you are becoming. We would be speaking with you again. We bid you good evening.
THE SOURCE: The Pleiadians are a collective of extraterrestrials from the star system The Pleiades. The Pleiadian culture is ancient and was "seeded" from another universe of love long before Earth was created.
They have formed a tremendous society which operates with love, with ideas and ideals that we are yet unfamiliar with. The Pleiadians call themselves our ancient family because many of us came here from The Pleiades to participate in the new experiment of Earth.
The Pleiadians are now here as ambassadors from another universe to help Earth through her difficult transition from the third dimension to the fourth dimension and to assist each of us in our personal endeavors of awakening, remembering and knowing.
