Gem of the Month
The Gem of the Month is a regular feature that provides an excerpt from a recent transcript that captures a snapshot of essential Elias.
This month’s gem is taken from the recent group session in Germany.
“In time frameworks past, in offering this information and these concepts to you all previously in time frameworks in which the specifics of them were unfamiliar and what you incorporated in objective understanding and knowledge was merely that you do incorporate beliefs and that beliefs exist, I offered also generalities to facilitate your movement into a greater objective understanding of the directions and the specifics of them in relation to yourselves.
“Those generalities now are becoming obsolete, for you do incorporate a wider awareness now. But what is familiar to you? What is familiar to you is to allow some other expression – another entity, another individual – to direct you, for you are unfamiliar with directing yourselves. Therefore, you look to any expression that you deem to be an authority – of which all of you deem myself to be an authority, and I am not. You all incorporate the same information as do I.
“You are consciousness, you are essences, and you all incorporate the ability to tap into yourselves and to respond to your questions and to offer yourselves your answers, but this is an unfamiliar action. Therefore, as being unfamiliar and not incorporating the experience, which is the key, you flounder and you question and you become confused, for you express to yourselves, ‘How shall I know? How shall I acquire this information? How do I do that?’
“... For another familiarity which many of you fascinate yourselves with is complication. (Laughter) You shall analyze and analyze and analyze, for this is complicating and this is fascinating! ‘How much more may I complicate this situation and fascinate myself with how far I may move with this complication?’ And if it is not complicated enough in all of your analyzation, you shall inquire of another individual to offer a different perspective to analyze farther and complicate more! ‘I have not complicated this situation enough; how may I complicate it even more? Shall you offer me a suggestion?’ And the other individual is more than willing to participate in your complication and, ‘Ah, yes! I have analyzed in this manner,’ and you express, ‘Ah! I did not perceive in that direction! I shall evaluate in that direction also, and I shall further my complication.’ No – it is unnecessary.
“In actuality, I shall offer you a slight secret. Many times I offer information to all of you in much more of a complicated fashion than is necessary. For if I answer you in the genuine answer, you shall be blankly staring at myself and you shall, subsequent to our interaction, be milling ‘round discussing with each other, ‘What did he say? What was that meaning? I do not understand. There must be more, and he has eliminated some of the information.’ No, but you are unfamiliar with the simplicity of actually creating.
“Just as you automatically create your universe, and give it no thought. You merely do it. But tremendous thought is incorporated in generating creating coins and paper: ‘How, how, how? Not enough, not enough!’ Billions of stars, but not enough paper and coins!” [session 1398, July 19, 2003]

Power Users Tip of the Month - A Glossary of Elias’ Terms compiled by Luana Alika
Last month we explored the home page. This month we’re going to look at the most recent addition to the Library.
Many folks have asked for a Glossary, and Luana created one! She’s done a lot of excellent research and provided links to as many transcripts as possible, and we filled in the rest with link to the Digests. It’s prints out to about 15 pages, and provides a great overview of the information.
Luana also asked me to remind everyone that when you open the Glossary in your browser, you can use your keyword search function (CTRL+F) and continue search function (CTRL+G) if you don’t find what you’re looking for on the first search. It really speeds things up!
Also, the Digests Table of Contents page has links to most of the Glossary terms. And you can use the Elias search page to search for more links on any term, too.
