on becoming aware...

“How long can you be unaware of your Self, unaware of your Source? How many lifetimes can one go through? And this study, this look is taking place just here on Earth by some of my associates. But how long can one truly be out of touch?

Now, there were lifetimes where you had that connection in dream state, in between lifetimes, but for many humans now it’s been many thousands and thousands of years – 5,000 for some, 10,000 years, not you, but others – since they’ve had that touch of Source. Then they get so lost and they get so disillusioned and they get so deep into the matrix of this reality that they just go longer and longer. One eventually has to have that reconnection with their Source, with their I Am; one eventually has to re-experience it, otherwise they truly go crazy.

And then they try things like dying, thinking that’s a solution. Imagine that you’re so distraught with life, there’s a knowingness that you can’t even define, but something saying, “There’s got to be more. I’ve got to get out of here,” and then choosing death, thinking that’s the release. But finding that when you die, it’s the same thing.

Imagine you’re in prison. You’ve been there locked in the cell, wearing the same clothes as everyone, eating the same food, doing the same daily routine. No creativity. No true opportunity for self-expression. Very, very unsafe, and then you think you’re getting out. You’re overjoyed. It’s time. You’re going to be released or you figured a way to break out. You get out. You step out of prison and you realize it’s still prison. It’s still the same prison. And later on you find yet another door you think you can break out of. When you do, you find out it’s still the same prison, and that’s exactly what’s happening. Exactly.

That’s exactly why I love working with each and every one of you, because you don’t care. You don’t care about what it takes. You’re letting this be the life of release from that prison back to your Source, back to your Self. You can feel it so strongly. You’ve said to yourself, “I’ll do anything just for that reconnection. Anything.” And here we are

We’re not going to study our way into it. We’re not going to power our way into it. No, no, no, no, no. We’re going to allow it, and it is going to seem counter-intelligent at times. But that’s the way to do it. It’s your natural state of being. Not all the other games. Not any of the other things. It’s the natural state of being.

So why don’t we just –snap! – like that, make it happen? It’s compassion, so you don’t burn out or blow up. It is also to allow yourself the experience, to know the experience. If it just happened – snap! – like that, you would be without the real experience, without what you’ve gone through, without the deep realization of it.”
