Forgiveness is an issue we all have to deal with on a fairly regular basis, and for many of us, it poses a real conundrum. Laitos here does little to make the issue simpler, but rather deepens the concept by suggesting that it is a project which extends well into the higher densities. The problem is broken down into the following components: (1) The act of forgiving needs to include both the self and the other, (2) The gift of the energy of the Creator, as unfathomable as it may be, is still perhaps our best resource, and (3) There is something called “complete forgiveness,” in which a full balance is achieved by each self forgiving itself and the other.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group first channeling intensive in Colorado Springs, Laitos explores the different aspects involved in trust, from trust in self, to the extension of trust to the other self, to the more generalized trust in the Creation generally. While trust ought not be blind and wanton, for there are often dangers to balance, we learn through our disappointments how to accept others as they are, to cultivate a faith in their good intentions and highest they have to offer. If we can believe in the fundamentally didactic nature of our catalyst, we can use both trust and distrust to explore the current of our lives, which will always bring us back to another opportunity to balance between openness and discernment.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, those of Laitos explore several dimensions of service to others. As an attitude we exude in our daily activities, service realizes an expanded self that can tune into the Creator in others in an increasingly automatic fashion. In exploring our foundational desire to serve, we learn to gently balance active service with work in consciousness, replenishing our will to seek the Creator and refining the honesty of that desire. These lessons in the subtleties of the positive polarity allow us and the Creator to benefit from our attempts at serving even when they fail, helping us return to the state of grace which confers peace in spite of the ups and downs of incarnate life.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, those of Laitos describe Earth’s transition from third density to fourth density as a birthing process experiencing difficulty and requiring aid from her inhabitants. The seeker is capable of providing love, comfort, and assistance by maintaining a welcoming, nurturing, and peaceful attitude in the face of what may appear to be catastrophe. Healing the strife that hinders the delivery process is part of looking beyond the individual to the collective possibilities of the coming density. Laitos expands on this metaphysical relation between humans and planet by suggesting the Earth serves as a kind of unconscious for the emerging social memory complex of sub-sub-Logoi on her surface.
Love and wisdom are such fundamental aspects of the creation that each is accorded an entire density of experience to allow for the evolving creature to perfect its reflection of this facet of the Creator. In the sixth density the two dimensions must be brought into a state of balance with one another. Even in the third density, however, issues of balance arise. Q’uo here responds to our query concerning the issues and complications that arise in this process.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive in Colorado Springs, Q’uo discusses humility, starting with comparing our condition to that of the second density sapling vulnerably striving towards the light without self-consciousness. Q’uo then ties in false humility, arrogance, acceptance of self, protection, specialization, and authority to explore the experiences that we encounter as we hone the personality shells that third density provides us. Given the service we expect to perform, Q’uo suggests we seek to share the burden and comfort one another, recognizing we all started out as more naive and less wise than we are now.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive in Colorado Springs, Q’uo lays the groundwork for social dynamics that span from the one-on-one relationship to the large institution, showing how these different scales of association allow for the issue of energies that allow us to work with the lessons of the yellow ray center. Conflict, humiliation, and frustration are far from errant experiences — they are the means by which we learn the path towards social memory. If we can make our expectations within our groups plain, both to ourselves and to our other selves, we can set an example of the vast potential available to the group when each individual heart is opened and made vulnerable.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, Q’uo elaborates on functional characteristics involved in three of the seven classifications used to study the archetypal mind. The significator provides a unifying concept of selfhood that derives elaboration from the mutual reinforcement of matrix and potentiator, variously synthesizing the activity/passivity and generation/reception dynamics that accrue from their respective masculine or feminine correspondences. In their answers to questions, Q’uo briefly touches on the choice archetype’s relationship to the significator, and finally they establish the primacy of free will relative to the archetypal mind, suggesting a mysterious, macrocosmic superstructure governing octaval evolution.
In this session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, those of Q’uo explore the conditions of sorrow that so frequently transform the natural empathy we feel towards our other selves into a self-protective aversion. The work of accepting and balancing heartache felt by another lies in our willingness to feel those emotions along with them, alleviating the loneliness of sorrow in the other and obtaining on both parties’ behalf a new perspective on this experience that teaches the Creator so much. We may convey our balance to those suffering just as their imbalance is felt by us, transmuting the experience so that no part of the Creator is left behind.
Q’uo here addresses the issue of love in the context of human experience, where it is described as an essential portion of a cycle in which love seems to become first lost and then recovered. In this respect, love undergoes transformations that deepen the life experience of the mind/body/spirit complex that aspires to evolve.
In this final session from the Other Selves Working Group’s first channeling intensive, Q’uo counsels the channeling circle on how to approach continuing their spiritual work after returning home. They urge the group to discover a balance between the daily duties of life and the responsibility of serving as channels, commenting on the importance of accountability and clear communication. Catalyst may be increased in the group’s personal lives, but with that challenge comes additional resources arising from the dedication to the spiritual path. Q’uo finishes by answering questions on despair and healing, concerns about financing the group’s effort, and the advisability of practicing channeling at home.
In this first session from the second OSWG channeling intensive, Q’uo offers details about the different kinds of entities one might channel and how to appropriately protect oneself in doing so. They begin by articulating the inner planes/outer planes distinction and why it makes a difference in channeling. The rule of three helps anchor the wavelength when it is projected into the outer realms where there is less natural protection. The existence of entities who would want to redirect communication to their own ends is what makes tuning and protection necessary. Throughout this message, Q’uo is careful to attend to the special relationship the higher self has to the self, in both its limitations and its protections. They dwell on the number three: it is an auspicious and nonarbitrary number; however, the higher the number of aligned seekers, the greater the protection. Q’uo closes with a reminder that the circle of seeking is not limited to the space and time in which channeling occurs.
In this session Q’uo speaks to the process and the tribulations involved in the task that increasingly becomes central to the aspiring adept: the work of disciplining the emotions. Stress is laid upon the need to integrate work in the daily life with that work which is done in meditation. Q’uo develops in some detail the exigencies of daily work, showing how this fits in with our interactions with other selves. And the point is made that these interactions will not always be sweet and harmonious, even when there is a prevailing intent to make them so. Finally, attention is given to how the harvest of the work done in daily life can be brought into the more focused workings of the meditative situation.
In this session those of Q’uo engage in a broad discussion of the purpose, nature, and ramifications of the Transformation of Mind archetype. Because the theme of the archetype’s tarot image involves choosing merely one kind of relationship to the self and deep mind over the other kind, Q’uo reminds us that letting go of the unchosen is an important part of transformation. We are advised to have compassion for ourselves in this pregnant state of change, as the fear attending transformation redounds to the depths of the contingency entailed in spiritual evolution. Both paths lead not only back to the Creator but also each teach as old patterns are balanced, and it is in the caring for the fragile third density self through the growth pains and alien feelings of transformation that we more completely integrate ourselves to be full participants in the next stage of evolution.
Q’uo describes the nature of group minds, focusing on their similarities to and differences from individual minds. They then introduce thought forms as a means of communication between minds, whether group or individual. Thought-forms, Q’uo reminds us, are not always consciously or even coherently assembled. But when they are consciously formed by a polarized entity, they will have different features and target different realms of activity depending on which polarity produces them.
