Those of Laitos open the Fourth Channeling Intensive with a treatment of the concept and import of forgiveness. The means for forgiving others change with the details of the illusion, sometimes involving greater imagination and faith than one might expect. These lessons may then be directed within in order to realize a more holistic, balanced and integrated self than the identity we curate for the illusion, one that is redeemed in knowing and accepting its wholeness and goodness. As we learn to use the vehicle of our waking personality limber and adaptable enough to open the heart in unconditional love, we discover how forgiveness disciplines our personalities to accept what we come to learn about the third density condition within and without.
Those of Laitos discuss the subject of despair as a salutary stage of spiritual seeking. While it may attend feelings of loss, confusion, and angst, it also conveys to the seeker a new possibility for an aspirational self and new perspective on one’s life. That this transformation so often requires the breaking of the old concept of self and self’s possibility for further service and growth in the world is regrettable, for we must present a coherent and workable self to the world to participate in it. However, by enduring faith in a head-on manner, we learn to bring the faith to bear that our inner light is sufficient to carry on through many trials and sorrows, much as higher density entities have learned to do.
In this remarkable session, those of Q’uo discuss the basic organizing principles of first density, including what pushes entities into second density. It is in first density that consciousness transforms through patterns of motion that begin to crystallize and resonate with vibratory influences that beckon the nascent entity onwards. By tracing this progression of consciousness backwards from third density to first, those of Q’uo walk the seeker through the various layers of awareness that accumulate to modify the overall quality of beingness. They end by illustrating the specific nature of a primitive consciousness that, in its limitation to only be acted upon and not act itself, can endure and abide timelessness. Mysteriously, a “primordial desire” emerges at some point impelling the first density graduate to pursue the upward spiraling light into a world of motion, time, action, and complexity.
Those of Q’uo address the societal roots of authoritarianism in the individual’s repression of ugly or unwanted parts of the individual into their unconscious mind. Most people repress parts of themselves from free expression, building a potential that can be politically and socially released at scale in mass society by certain personalities which magnetically attract these repressed other selves. Releasing this potential sidesteps the necessity of the repressed individual to call sufficiently upon the spirit complex, trapping the repressed individual in the sinkhole of indifference indefinitely. Q’uo ends by discussing the power yielded through polarized engagement with this shadow self and suggests how one might positively accomplish this work.
Those of Q’uo tackle the concept of calling in this short session, specifically how it relates to service. Calling is a reciprocal phenomenon to service that highlights the interrelated nature of the creation, and calling is as necessary as service. Because those of Q’uo seek to serve in the positive polarity, they describe some of their concerns about answering callings and how they might approach them in a spirit of respecting free will and the capacity of third density consciousness. Some guidance is also provided on how to think about asking for service in a way that advances the seeker’s spiritual evolution.
What do those of Ra and the Confederation mean by “efficiency” when discussing spiritual evolution? Those of Q’uo tackle this question in light of the protean, “trial and error” nature of evolution, articulating the role the self-aware seeker plays in the total expression of the Creator’s nature in this octave. Each octave seems to constitute an experiment in improving the balance between joy and sorrow as two poles in a continuum properly experienced as one follows the upwards spiraling light. This current octave’s introduction of the veil between conscious and unconscious mind has improved the motivation to seek through third density polarization, but it has introduced a side effect by increasing the concentration of sorrow in that density, leading to the sinkhole of indifference. Those of sixth density seek to ameliorate this side effect, but their help is often rejected, and they are relegated to merely sharing in this sorrow as they send their love/light.
In this session those of Q’uo discuss the various long-running effects of the veil experienced in third density on the later densities’ balancing. Polarization provides much impetus for seeking, but this lopsided desire does eventually require balancing in the higher densities. Q’uo describes the various ways in which wandering back into third density helps the mind/body/spirit complex explore its original choice in more detail. This to-and-fro between lower and higher densities seems to have served to complicate the otherwise smooth path back to the Creator in this octave, shortening third and fourth densities relative to the last octave but lengthening fifth and sixth densities.
Those of Q’uo address the dynamic of cynicism or doubt as a normal aspect of life in third density given how little we truly know and can see about the nature of our illusion. Working with this cynicism is part and parcel of working with its opposite, faith, and in this balancing we learn to ascertain the true nature of reality through direct experience. Q’uo also discusses the role cynicism plays in how we relate to other selves as a projection of our inner integration.
This session deals with the nature of time/space as a reciprocal, alternatively constrained experience to space/time, offering mind/body/spirit complexes a more qualitative realm in which to intensify the focus of their seeking. Q’uo discusses the individual’s oscillation through these two realms of experience and how they contribute to one’s seeking path, especially with respect to the polarized nature of time/space. There is also some engagement with the nature of time, and those of Q’uo describe the dream experience as an example of those more fluid encounters with phenomena that time/space makes possible. As mind/body/spirit complexes grow more and more into their chosen path of polarity, time/space prepares the entity to make better use of space/time opportunities.
In this session, Q’uo expands upon a 2010 session in which they stated that individuals or soul streams persist from octave to octave. The value of the individual “centers to infinity” evolving as co-Creators is explored in terms of the Creation’s fractal nature, with each unit conveying a kind of memory of the specific distilled learning back to the Creator along lines that are consistent and inherent to this protean exercise of creation. There is the implication that this consistent fractal structure is the constant across octaves that allows for each new creation to be relatively appreciated for its novelty and for its distilled content to be shuttled back to the One Infinite Creator.
In this final session from the fourth channeling intensive, Q’uo addresses a variety of perspectives on the meaning and function of that catalyst which does not achieve its desired objective of promoting change and growth. It appears that the confusion of incarnation often leads to a dislocation between the finer balance being sought in such experiences and the comfort that a mind/body/spirit complex naturally tends to seek in third density. The post-incarnative life review in time/space allows for the kind of overview by which incomplete balances may be best engaged, and those of Q’uo briefly answer questions on the random character of catalyst and the malleability of the pre-incarnative plan.
Those of Q’uo describe the life of the will as an entity polarizes towards a stronger and more effective energy distribution system otherwise known as a personality. Because will transcends the veil between the conscious and unconscious minds, the very catalyst that challenges us to know ourselves also mobilizes our shadow selves within as blockages are untangled and the power channeled by the personality draws upon the deeper self. This energy can manifest in strange and unwelcome ways, and we are encouraged to mind our thoughts in order to accept ourselves and balance the powers we channel.
In this session those of Q’uo discuss the breadth of concerns and implications resulting from attempts at magical practice on the service-to-others path. With no shortage of cautionary admonitions, several elements of disciplined study and self-inquiry are explicated briefly, including the role of the energy centers, the choice of polarity, the archetypal mind, and the shadow self. The well grounded access of the higher self then plays a pivotal part in the positive adept’s transmutation of the negative energies at work in many conditions we might seek to affect through magical working. However, Q’uo continually remind us that this work demands immense levels of preparation and focus not required for third density polarization, and we can safely effect good through more modest forms of service.
Ever the ones to disclaim authority, Q’uo provides in this session their best effort at articulating the proper balance between respecting free will and exercising power over others on the service-to-others path. They paint an evolutionary portrait of the role of stewardship that incrementally assembles a complex and precarious web of cultural responsibilities, societal norms, psychological repressions, and codical strictures adhering to its rightful exercise, none of which much limits the potential for abuse, distortion, confusion, or unintended side effects. The one saving grace of the positive steward seems to lie in the guidance discovered within, involving a continual reckoning with one’s own blockages and desires that unearths a hard-won humility found in the balancing of the self and the experience of authority enacted both by and upon the self. The goal of all stewardship is to free other selves, achieving the harmony that allows for full expression of mind/body/spirit complexes without need for outer governance; yet a reliable recipe to effect this harmony appears to evade those of Q’uo.
In this session, those of Q’uo examine the relationship and distinctions between desire and will within third density. They describe desire as a random, indistinct, and chaotic energy drawing the entity towards the upward spiralling light in an unclear and mysterious fashion. The activiation of the spirit complex introduces the mind/body/spirit complex to the possibility of self-consciously ordering this energy of desire towards more articulated ends through the faculty of will. Because of the operation of the veil clouding the true nature of these energies, will increasingly coheres into a choice of polarity that can work intelligently and creatively with desire’s upward draw towards unity and co-creatorship. Q’uo hints that we take a key step towards social memory in fourth density as we recognize the patterns inherent in the integration of desire and will within ourselves and our other selves.
