MIRRORS OF SELF: In the Reconnection Universe, the primary purpose for Relationships (besides loving companionship), is to provide a means for seeing reflections of those aspects of self that remain hidden, due to the presence of the Veil. What we cannot embrace or do not notice within ourselves, we tend to project out upon people and things around us.
"The range of what we
think and do
PERCEPTION = REALITY: The attainment of "objectivity" in Relationship is extremely difficult, if not impossible. All sensory information about a person's world must pass through a perceptual "grid" in the brain for interpretation and integration within our being. That grid is permeated with the core essence of the experiencer. Assertions of non-bias, on any level, constitute a denial of Universal Oneness and tend to deflect one away from the deeper insights which Relationships are designed to offer. Our experience of the world is administrated through our perceptions---how things seem to us, and what we say to ourselves about life when we are touched by it.
"We don't see the world as it is. We see the world as we are."
LEVELS OF SELF: Every person, object, situation, or location in our perceptual universe represents a level of SELF that we have lived, are living, or will live---compacted and symbolically represented within a learning space, which has been especially prepared to receive it. The link to the above transmission explains what each level of perception means, and how it can be interpreted to open up new worlds of insight for those who are attuned to personalizing their universe for maximum enjoyment and learning.
THE THREE COMMITMENTS: People cannot effectively commit to one another until they have first committed to PERSONAL FREEDOM (on all sides of the dance), STAYING IN THE NOW, and to the AUTHENTICITY of ENERGY moving through them. Vows of "till death do us part" in relationships originally had more to do with the efficient transfer of lands and property (at death) than with never-ending love or romance. Folks wanted to avoid the unpleasant reality of "divorce lawyers." Besides, back then.....most didn't live past the age of 34.
DEVOTION VS. OBLIGATION: (From the Reconnections) "The nuclear family continues to explode. We do not mean to sound facetious here, but a little humor often serves to soften a blow. We speak, of course, about your definition of "family" that derives itself from connection through marriage, bloodline, political or religious tradition, and ancestry. In truth, these elements do have power, and will continue to hold power. But their value exists primarily within the implicate order that they have provided for your life in 3D. You might think of them as givens or starting equations that make up the "rules" for your Grand Game. As such, they have served you well. But, by no means, were they meant to dictate your entire physical journey. For every implicate order there must also be a voluntary commitment to nourish and support it. Where there is no conscious choice, there is no genuine love. There is only a sense of obligation and heaviness. Though these qualities do provide a rudimentary sense of security and grounding, they often stand directly in the way of a person moving beyond his heritage into a whole new area of achievement and personal realization.
Any successful "marriage"--whether it be a merge of business partners, living partners, project participants, players of team sports, or whatever--needs to be built upon common goals, common circumstance, and a common perspective. When your sense of commonality departs, the marriage is over--whether or not the official partnership has been dissolved. In some cases today, what is being called a "marriage union" in your society energetically bears resemblance to a person who has died, but has refused to fall down."
You were born together, and
together you shall be forevermore.
We are where we are for a reason. When it is time to go somewhere else, or being something else, we will automatically create a way to make that happen. Until then, we wait patiently for direction, and we PAY ATTENTION to what is going on around us, at every level.
(More from The Recons) "It does take a village to raise a child. And it does take a village to meet the emotional and sociological needs of those who live in society. Humanity is getting to the place where you can no longer pretend otherwise. For example, many there are who show great disdain for connections that are created in cyberspace, where wandering spouses use computer resources to create "affairs" with strangers. This is felt by many to be disgraceful and wrong. We invite you to consider that such activities may not really be the cause for problems in marriage and family at this time. They are simply revealing problems that have always been there. In a sense, you might think of the Internet as a kind of Global Mind that you have built to explore and connect to your local community and your world. Where the individual mind tends to wander, so will the Internet. It is a reflection, not a cause. And, once the image in the mirror has been seen, how will you bring forgetfulness back to cover it again?"
CHILDREN: Children, in any societal context, symbolize the soul's desire to renew and complete itself. They are not the property of biological parents, and should be free to move about the community---learning first from this one, and then from that one. They are not as "helpless" as adults would like to make them out. The freshness they bring to any equation is well-worth the time it takes to integrate them into the societal flow. Children of the New Earth are far more resilient and wise than previous generations. Left to themselves, they will ultimately choose the correct path for their own personal evolution. All individuals, at any age, must be subject to the Law of Love: "Harm no one. Do as thou wilt." There is a lot more to this concept---which is outlined in the two series "The Imagine Nation," and "A Child-Friendly Society."
CHILDREN OF THE NEW EARTH: Within that societal sub-group known as "children," there are special beings now appearing in our midst---beings we call "Indigo," "Crystal," or "Star Children." These beings are a manifestation what is called "The Cosmic Christ," brought into the world for our instruction and also for our comfort and support, during a powerful time of transition on the planet. Do not let their physical appearance fool you. They are very old souls, moving about in very young bodies. Their counterparts are "Star Elders," existing at the other end of the age spectrum. Both groups tend to be ignored in current societal practice. Both groups have some of the best gifts to give us at this time.
HEALING IN RELATIONSHIP: The healing of Relationship, whether among nations or individuals, involves looking at everything as a mirror of SELF, and acting AUTHENTICALLY toward what is seen. This will not always result in popularized, sanguine expressions of "love" that are currently being marketed in the name of religion or political unity. Love has its dark side, and it also has its light. So do each of you.
SOCIETAL STRUCTURE AND LAW: "Harm no one. Do as thou wilt. This, then, shall be the whole of the law." This is also known as "The Law of Love." In a Oneness-based Society, every reflection that comes to us is for our instruction. The term "innocence" refers to an authentic action or attitude---one that is unfeigned, that has no hidden agenda...beyond what seems obvious in the moment. Any attempt to analyze, inhibit, or control one another tends to inhibit the clear reflections of SELF that each of us can bring to any equation. When one member of society moves into callousness and insensitivity---all of society must turn and ponder: "What part of ME is doing this also?" That process alone, performed daily, en masse.......is all the police force any society would ever need. At this time on Earth, such a philosophy seems ridiculous and overly simplistic. However, there will come a time when simplicity will come back into vogue, when Occam's Razor will be re-instituted as the predominant standard for living.
P0LITICS: (From the
Recons) "All involvement in what you call "Politics" is, at its root, a
form of conspiracy. Though this latter expression is very often
upon your lips today, it surely is not new. Through Politics, you create a space called "society," where YOU
form an agreement with THEM.....that you will subjugate your spontaneous,
authentic, in-the-moment choices and behavior in favor of a pre-
established protocol of expression (or repression)---to the desired end
that you may live (peacefully, if possible) within a pre- fabricated,
postured environment that looks good, sounds good, but inevitably ends up
feeling quite empty and sad.
CLANS AND TRIBES: (Paraprofessional Societal Support During Transition) A Clan is a gift that we give to ourselves. It is synonymous with what the Recons describe as a "Family of the Heart." A Tribe is our gift to the world, a Service Cluster of like-minded individuals, wherein we reflect the abundance that travels through our heart space and overflows the human cup. The former is personal, the latter is transpersonal--something that moves from small story to Big Story, in the blink of an "i"...........
We cannot serve before we have been served. And, once we have been served, we have a hard time shutting up about the Sources of Blessing we have discovered. There is nothing wrong with us that complete REMEMBERING will not fix! We have been living in a dream, and now it is time to awaken. And we are doing so, en masse. We are not speaking here about self-sacrifice. And we have already addressed clearly the dichotomy of devotion vs. obligation. When we are naturally reconnected, our life energy just FLOWS. And flowing, it intersects with all like-vibrations at every level of being.
THE NEW SEXUALITY: (From The Reconnections) "The energy on the planet is rising too rapidly for humankind to spend themselves in putting up facades, or in holding things together for tradition's sake, or "for the sake of the kids." The kids have already figured out what's happening, and they will generally do quite well during the shifts and changes that are ahead.
There are, basically, two levels of human relationship and interaction. One of them arises from commonality of purpose and mutual physical need. If two (or more) can live as cheaply as one-- you can bet that, over the next few years, people will try it . There will be a whole host of reasons that you will choose to dwell together. Mostly, you will do it because it works. Soon you will no longer have strength to perpetuate relationships and situations that don't work for you. Look for a continuing trend of people who play "musical houses" with each other. Mostly, humanity is trying to figure out who you all are, and what is needed to make yourselves happy.
The second level of human relationship has to do with Energy Alchemy. Each transforming soul upon the planet now is a compilation being. This means that you each carry essences and remnants of energy that span many lifetimes. To us, your souls look like tapestries, made up of unique vibratory "patches," that are stitched together-- representing incarnations, talents, gifts, and "issues" that need to be worked through.
More and more, people will find themselves magnetically pulled towards certain individuals, whose energy is required to complete their transformation. These attractions do not always make sense, nor will they necessarily be utilitarian in nature. But you will certainly feel the need, and many will choose to follow their energy into deeper contact with these individuals. Some of these dances may last a day, while others may continue for a week, a month, or even longer. In many cases, the intensity of these transformational contacts will tend to blow the connection out within a short time. When this happens, the dancers will return to their safe harbor relationships--to share the energy upgrades, as well as to process through all the feelings that come along with them.
Soon, humanity will understand that "monogamy" or "long-term commitment" is not something that can be decided in advance. Neither does it have anything to do with sexual exclusivity. Genuine "commitment" is a spontaneous perpetuation of comfort and peace that two (or more) individuals grow into, almost without knowing it is happening. Having freed yourselves from religious constraints and "till death do us part" promises, humans will recognize that all time is NOW, and all worthy connections and collaborations must have in-the-moment tonal resonance in order to do you any good. You can't decide to do things just because you "should." That no longer works. In truth, it never did."
