Do you like taking thought beyond that which it has been before? Do you want to set aside everything that you have come to know and believe, all at once, and just jump into a whole new understanding? Well, if that is your desire, you are really going about it the hard way. And it also implies that what you have is not working— when it is.
The way you evolve is from where you now are standing on your current platform, and a large part of your current platform equals a large part of your current vibration— that's what your belief system is. But you don't need to uproot your entire belief system in order to evolve. There is much that you believe that is serving you extremely well.
Someone handed Jerry and Esther a copy of a book that they had found in a bookstore that was written in the 1930's. And the reason they were so eager to give the book to Jerry and Esther is because it mentioned the "Law of Attraction." And as Jerry perused the book, much of what he is hearing today from Abraham was written in this book. And then as he read closer, he saw that the author gave credit for her inspiration to Ernest Holmes (who in turn gave credit to Thomas Troward for much of his inspiration). And Jerry has long seen a vibrational sameness between what they were receiving and what Esther is receiving, (from Abraham) even though there are many years difference.
The author, a woman, was talking about "what an extraordinarily fast-moving environment we are all living in, in this modern day," and how hard it is to keep up. And Esther nearly drove off the road in the monster bus as Jerry was reading this to her, because she had been working to get her satellite dishes to work, and working to get the communication between the office to work, and had been talking, just hours before, about this "bleeding edge" that they are living on, in terms of technology—and almost longing for a simpler time.
She said, "My parents still have the television we had when we grew up. They still have the same telephone, the same 10-key adding machine, the same electric typewriter… And while they do have a computer, they still have the same can opener, the same Mixmaster — all of these old, reliable machines that mother still knows how to use that were built to last, and did. And Esther was longing for the good old days, just a little bit.
Jerry was reading from a woman's perspective, who was, at that time, on the leading edge (because the NOW always is the leading edge, isn't it?) who was, in her day, struggling to keep up with what was new. And what we want to say is that, the vibrational basis that you are now standing in is the basis for the majority of your vibrational offering, and your vibrational offering is your point of attraction.
And so, there are some powerful points to be made of Jerry and Esther's new awareness of how fast the leading edge of the 1930's felt to those who had just stepped from 1929 into 1930 just as sometimes your leading edge place feels almost faster than you are ready for… Whether it was then or whether it is now, or whether it will be tomorrow, your work is always the same: Your individual work is to keep yourself, yourself, in vibrational alignment with your own desires. It's not to keep up with what everybody is thinking about. It's not to understand what everybody understands. It's not to mesh your desires or your beliefs with everyone else's. Your work (and the work of this woman who was living in 1930) is always to bring the vibration of your thought, in this moment, as close as you can, in this moment, into vibrational alignment with the desire that you hold—in this moment.
As Esther listened to Jerry read this woman's brief account of what it was like then, it was interesting to realize that almost everyone who is standing in their leading edge place has this sense of urgency about getting it to the point of completion; getting it figured out, getting it solved. And there was something so interesting to Esther as she was listening to this woman speaking about solving it all, way, way, way, way back when. And Esther couldn't help but notice that between 1930 and today—it didn't get solved, and it didn't get finished; it didn't get completed—and all of that striving seemed ill-placed.
It is ill-placed if you're trying to get things fixed, if you're trying to figure it all out, if you're trying to get to the place that you think you were sent here by God to conclude. But when you get it, that whether you are focused in 1930 or 1940, or whether you're focused right here, today, your work is about being; observing; vibrating; concluding new preference, aligning with preference —and the world just goes around and around, and around—for what? For what?
Were those in the 1930's sent here to make it some way so that by some deadline it will be some way? There are so many who want you to believe that "We've got to get ready! Gotta get ready!" For what? For eternity? For more opportunity to be? What is it for? What is any of it for? What has any of it ever been for? What will any of it ever be for?
What it is for, is for your creative pleasure in your NOW. It is for your opportunity to conclude what you would prefer and for your opportunity to align that preference with the Source that is You. And when you use the Guidance that comes from within you to help you know whether you're in sync with the desires that you have set forth, or whether you are not—then you're in alignment. Then, you're in alignment with your NOW. Then, you're in alignment with your Source. Then, you're in alignment with All-That- Is. Then, you are living that which you came forth to live.
When you decide that you're going to go on a vacation, do you tell your friends, "I'm going to meet these specific requirements…There are many things I need to do, and I'm getting them done. And I'll be back when I have fulfilled this responsibility," or, do you go for another reason, like pleasure and adventure and stimulation and exhilaration, and refreshment?
You didn't come forth into this physical experience on a mission to save the world, or to correct the world, or to make the world see the error of their ways. You didn't come forth to align the world, or to unite the world. You didn't come forth to do anything other than have experience, give birth to your preferences, align with your own preferences —and to live happily ever after.
You didn't come to earn worthiness —you already are worthy. You didn't come forth to become intelligent —you already are Intelligence. You didn't come forth to achieve godliness—you already are God. You came forth for the pleasure of being the powerful creator that you are, and you knew that there would be a world full of others doing the same thing, and that you would mix and match. And sometimes you would agree, and often you would not agree. But out of all of it a powerful thing would happen: New ideas would be born.
You knew that the new idea would be born. And you knew you would have the opportunity to feel the thrill of being on the leading edge as the new idea is born, and to feel the rush of creative Life Force flowing through your focused viewpoint. You knew you would have an Emotional Center that would let you know whether—in this moment—the idea that has been born within you, aligns with other conclusions that you have already achieved.
As Non-physical Energy—you decide that you will focus into this time/space reality, and this worthy, loving, Pure Positive Energy Consciousness focuses here, for the express purpose of providing an opportunity for Broader Perspective to move forward, for the achievement of what? Expansion? Yes, but expansion is inevitable. Joy? Yes, for the purpose of joy. That's why we all exist.
We exist for the thrill of our powerful NOW. Whether you are east coast or west coast, it's still NOW. Whether you are on this continent or the other side of the world, it's still NOW. Whether you are physical or Non-physical, it's still NOW.
NOW is the powerful juncture where all Consciousness has awareness, NOW—NOW!
So, in 1930, this woman is aligning or not aligning, fully or not fully, with the Broader Perspective of her that is focused NOW—and you're doing the same thing. In other words, the juncture where the physical and the Non-physical converge is NOW. It's the converging of the Energy of who you are with the Energy of who You are.
So, as you stand in your NOW and you're loving your moment, you are in alignment NOW, totally with who you are. We call that blending. Some call it allowing your soul to be present. Some call it inspired. Some call it tuned in, tapped in, turned on. Some call it in the flow. There are a lot of different ways of expressing this conscious connection with who you are…We call it the Art of Allowing. We call it the art—the art of deliberately adjusting my vibration, as often as I can consciously manage, for the sole purpose of allowing the juncture NOW of the fullness of me, to be focused through the fullness of Me…and when you meet someone who is achieving that, you would describe them in a variety of different words, you would say, "That's a happy person." You would say, "That is such a balanced person." You would say, "Oh, do you see how coordinated that person is?" Have you watched the Olympic Games? Do you see those kids standing on those diving platforms, or getting ready for their race? Do you see them aligning with who they are? (or working to do that?) Do you see them recognizing that they have untapped resources that they want to align with, right here and now.
Do you see the musician, so at-one with his instrument that it seems as if there is no separation whatsoever? And the music flows through him in a magical rhythm that sets you upside down, and turns you inside out as you hear the harmony of his Source flowing through his instrument?
You never said, "I will come forth and go it alone." You always said, "I will come forth and allow that which is Source to (demonstrate, is the word in the book that Jerry read) demonstrate through me. I will be Source Energy in physical form. In fact, I will be Me."
So, who are you? You are magnificent. You are genius. You are in the right place at the right time. You're doing just fine. And as you work to appreciate and approve of who you are, right here and right now, instead of working so hard to compare yourself with every other point of Consciousness on the planet… and if you will let your variety inspire you to your personal preference —you will not worry about how anybody else is doing, and you will let your dominant desire to be to align with You.
NOW, you can be a member of this diverse Universe, magnificent in your unique way, complete in your unique way, and, most important, therefore, happy in your unique way. That's what we wish for you.
We wish every moment of your experience to be joyful like it is for us. We want you to look around your world and not worry, but to revel in its beauty. We want you to look around your own life and not worry, but to revel, in its magnificence. We want you to look at your own body and not nitpick about a wrinkle or an extra pound, or 20 or 30 or 40.
We want you to look at yourself and adore yourself. If you will make this small effort to appreciate you and what is yours NOW, you will soften, so quickly, any resistance that has been keeping you apart from the things you want. It is the magic formula that you've been looking for. It is the key to your blending. It is the key to your allowing. It is the key to you getting what you want. It is the key to your abundance, your clarity, and to your stamina. It is the key to your energy. It is the key to your vitality. It is the key to your flexibility. It is the key to your wellness. It is the key to all things that feel good to you.
Make some small effort, every chance you get, at looking at where you stand NOW and doing your best to soothe and appreciate you NOW, to soothe and appreciate your NOW….
Many of you have been hearing us talk about Guidance System, and many of you understand that Law of Attraction abounds, and that it is the manager of this Universe, and that it organizes all circumstances and events.
Many of you understand that you are offering a "radio signal" always, and that Law of Attraction answers it, so that what you're offering vibrationally and what you're getting back always matches. And many of you now understand that what you think and what you feel, and what manifests, always matches.
We want to show you, from where you stand, if we were standing in your physical shoes, the effort that we would be making, if we were standing in your physical shoes, of soothing ourselves, if we were standing in your physical shoes, back into alignment with Us, so that we can stand in your physical shoes.
When you feel good, you're got Source flowing through you. That's the reason you feel so good, it's all of the reason that you feel so good. That's what good-feeling is? Goodfeeling is allowing who-you-really-are to flow, in this moment.
So, no matter the topic, no matter the subject, no matter the question, our first order of business is to help you get into the vibrational place that you can allow in what you're asking for. Whether it's an answer to something that you've been wondering about, whether it's just a curiosity question that's been bugging you, or whether it's how to bring yourself from a place that is not pleasing you to a place that is pleasing you…because there is nothing off limits for you.
If you have the ability, in this time/space reality, to identify a question or a desire, it is our promise to you, that we can show you how to soothe yourself, in very short order, into a place of allowing your desire to come into your experience.
THERE IS NOTHING THAT YOU CANNOT DO, OR BE, OR HAVE.
