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.
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.
