ďAspects of TruthsĒ
ďCommunications from Future FocusesĒ
ďImpressions, Imagination and GuessingĒ
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Paul (Paneus).
(Elias arrives in 14 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good day!
PAUL: Hi, Elias. How are you?
ELIAS: As always. And yourself?
PAUL: Ready to rock and roll this morning! (Elias laughs) Hey, Iíve been having a couple of light bulbs short out in the last couple of days. Iím assuming that was you causing the mischief.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Correct.
PAUL: Who was it then who let the stool break on me when I sat on it yesterday? It didnít seem like you, but I donít know who it was.
ELIAS: This is your energy. (Laughs)
PAUL: Okay, I kind of guessed that. Did Don/Allard ask you a question about the Sphinx being reconciled with the age of pre-dynastic Egypt?
PAUL: Okay, hereís the question: the Sphinx is supposed to be over 10,000 years old geologically, and records say that pre-dynastic Egypt is only supposed to be about 4000 years ago. Can you reconcile this for us?
ELIAS: It is older than you think.
PAUL: The Sphinx is older than 10,000 years old?
PAUL: Well, that makes it even more pronounced, then. Well, who built the Sphinx? The Egyptians from pre-dynastic Egypt, our records show that they only go back about 4000 years. Thereís a difference then of over 6000 years. So, Iím wondering what is that big difference and what are we missing?
ELIAS: (Chuckles) What you are missing, so to speak, is viewing cultures and civilizations too narrowly and ascribing certain manifestations to specific groups of individuals or cultures and not allowing yourselves to view a bigger picture.
PAUL: Was there a race or culture before the Egyptians that built the Sphinx?
PAUL: Were they the Khemet or were they before the Khemet?
PAUL: This is my impression, that they were a race called the Archons, A-R-C-H-O-N-S (ARR kons).
ELIAS: That would be one translation.
PAUL: Okay, but theyíre within our dimension, right?
PAUL: If theyíre not the Archons, who were they? I have it down that they built the Sphinx about 11,000 years ago.
PAUL: So, Archons is my translation of who they were.
PAUL: Who were they, then?
ELIAS: (Chuckles) A culture.
PAUL: Youíre being coy with me, it sounds like.
ELIAS: And shall you not continue your investigation?
PAUL: One final question about that. In the Sphinx temple, there are several 200-ton blocks, as well as several blocks like that in some of the pyramids. Our engineering history doesnít have an answer for how the Egyptians moved these massive blocks. Did they use some type of energy projection to materialize blocks in a certain position, or did they use some type of levitation to move the blocks?
ELIAS: Neither, in with what you are associating. I may express to you that they did incorporate a different type of manipulation of energy, but in association with physical movement and perception.
PAUL: You said ďphysicalĒ and then you got quiet there and said ďand perception,Ē so is that some type of energy projection dealing with manifesting a block out of nothing?
ELIAS: No. They are actual physical blocks and they have been moved in association with physical human strength, but expressed in conjunction with altering their perception and therefore allowing them to incorporate quite different actions than you allow yourselves.
PAUL: You mean like super-human strength?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking.
PAUL: Thatís kind of unusual. Iíll ponder that one, I guess.
Am I on the path to achieve $165,000 in income this year from my writing and consulting, and will over 80% of it come from my books?
ELIAS: That would be your choice. (Paul laughs) I am not incorporating a response that shall be in prediction, for it is literally your choice.
PAUL: Could you at least say that Iím on the path of high potentiality?
ELIAS: You are incorporating a potential to be generating that action, but I may not express to you a prediction of whether you shall absolutely generate that choice or not, for it is your choice, and it is dependent upon how you are manipulating your energy and configuring your energy, and whether you are generating a genuine trust of yourself and therefore allowing yourself to create that.
PAUL: I think Iím doing pretty good on the allowing part. I get a lot of contacts for my books, and Iíve tried to exercise that patience and not strictly get into a waiting phase. Iím trying to walk that razorís edge between not forcing my energy and exercising patience.
ELIAS: I am understanding, and I am acknowledging of you in your accomplishment of that. I may express to you that the potential for accomplishing what you want is significant, but it also is dependent upon you and your allowance and your confidence, so to speak, as not incorporating doubt concerning what you are generating.
PAUL: Well, I definitely do have the doubt that crops up every so often. I believe my trust and allowance are expressed more often than that doubt, though.
ELIAS: Yes, I would be in agreement.
PAUL: Well, thank you!
Hereís kind of an involved question about several series or waves of events that hit me over the past month or so. Four or five hit me on one day or one weekend, and then itís been a gap, and then another four or five things happened again. I know that these signals were very clear communications, but Iím not exactly positive what the communication is.
Hereís the series of events. In the first wave, my dog Lucky tore up a patch of the carpet, then the toilet chain broke, then I had a morning headache, and then my dog cut his front paw. In the second wave, I hit a deer Ė the second deer Iíve hit with my one car Ė then I got pulled over for going through a yellow light, then broke a vacuum sweeper belt, I have a clogged clothes dryer line, and the dog peed on the carpet.
Iím trying to understand. Thereís seems to be a pattern of those signals in those two waves, and I want to know if these actions might be related to my belief of some type of experiencing the truth wave versus processing it intellectually.
ELIAS: Yes. And what have you offered to yourself in information?
PAUL: Well, different stuff. Like the dog tearing up a patch of carpet is my removing of old beliefs. The toilet chain breaking was more of a removing of limitation and allowing more free flowing of myself. The morning headache, I kind of got a picture of it being the frustration of a feeling of being stationary in my progress. Then the hitting the deer was something to do with my attention being deflected. Thatís kind of what I got so far regarding what I think some of the communications are from those two series or two waves of events.
ELIAS: And obstacles. The deer and the citation are also imagery that you present to yourself concerning obstacles in association with addressing to your truths.
PAUL: So itís forcing me to recognize that I do have obstacles to my addressing to my truths?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking. And what have you identified as some of your truths?
PAUL: A lot of them seem to do with machinery breakdown. One of my truths that I still hold is that things wear out, things break down with age. I still have a truth that... Well, there are several that I recognize that I have.
I also try to intellectually step past those beliefs to say I recognize that I still have them, but Iím trying to exercise choosing. Like a protection belief Ė there are several elements of the protection belief that I practice, but I try to take steps to not express it so much. Like I wonít put the seatbelt on in my car on occasion. Sometimes I will; sometimes I wonít. Iím trying to take those little steps toward not expressing the protection belief.
ELIAS: I am understanding. Recognizing that you are not eliminating this belief, correct?
PAUL: Yes, thatís right. Correct.
ELIAS: For the belief may continue to be expressed, but what you are offering yourself in this practicing is a recognition that regardless of whether you incorporate the belief as an expressed belief, you may choose how it is expressed in association with your preferences. You are not eliminating duplicity, and this is the reason that in expressing acceptance, you continue to incorporate your own individual preferences and opinions. You merely recognize that those are your expressions and [are] what offer you comfort and more of an ease, but that they are not necessarily an absolute and therefore not applicable in every situation and with all individuals.
But the trap in this movement of acceptance and in addressing to truths is the automatic expression of attempting to be eliminating, and automatically associating that the beliefs that you recognize are bad or that they are negative, and this is not the point. Every belief incorporates many different influences, some of which, in regard to different beliefs, you prefer.
Regardless of how black and white you may view any belief, and regardless of what belief may be expressed in association with any action, it is not as absolute as it may appear to be. Each of you incorporates different associations with each belief and incorporates many different influences in accordance with each belief.
PAUL: Would the clogged dryer line also be another obstacle communication?
PAUL: It wasnít saying that thereís obstacles, but basically to say that I still have some beliefs I have to process or some truths I have to recognize yet?
ELIAS: Somewhat, but more specifically these are expressions that present an example to you, for it is an opportunity for you to notice your immediate, initial automatic response. Your immediate automatic response is discontent with these actions.
PAUL: Well, yeah!
ELIAS: There is an immediate automatic negative association that is generated with all of these actions, which is expressing a point to yourself that there are many beliefs that are expressed that you automatically immediately generate a negative association with, and are not necessarily viewing all of the influences of the belief and therefore not recognizing that there are some expressions of the belief that you do not view to be negative.
Let me offer you a hypothetical example of a truth that many individuals incorporate. Murder of another individual is wrong.
PAUL: (Humorously) Yes, Iíve heard that belief.
ELIAS: Now; what constitutes murder of another individual? Your definition of murder is to be incorporating the action of discontinuing the life of another individual in any manner. But although you view that to be an absolute and although it may be an expressed belief that you incorporate, it is not an absolute, for in that same belief it is acceptable to be incorporating that action in certain situations.
PAUL: Like in a military conflict?
ELIAS: It is acceptable to be engaging that action of murder if you are in a situation such as that, in a war, or if you are defending yourself and your life, or if another individual is threatening your property, so to speak, or if there are two lives endangered, such as a situation of childbirth. One is allowed to be sacrificed for the other. There are many different situations in which within that belief concerning murder you do not view it as negative and you view to be acceptable, but you express that murder blanketly is unacceptable. Therefore, at the very term of murder, you automatically generate a negative association and that it is wrong.
PAUL: So the point of all this is not necessarily to eliminate duplicity, but to be aware of it and express acceptance of my beliefs that I choose in the moment.
ELIAS: Correct, and to recognize that the role of duplicity as it is being expressed now in conjunction with this shift in consciousness is to be defining and identifying what your preferences are or are not, but not expressing a judgment in an absolute manner, that if you generate a preference that that is an absolute and it is applicable to all of reality, not merely yourself.
PAUL: How far along have I gone in understanding my truths and beliefs, say in the last couple months? How much progress have I made? Intellectually I think I made a lot, Iím just not sure if itís...
ELIAS: I may express to you that you are generating movement. I may also express to you an identification that you are recognizing some of your truths, but you are not necessarily recognizing all of the aspects of those truths.
PAUL: I believe that. One of my questions Ė and Iíll jump to it since itís related Ė will I uncover all my truths or most of my truths by thinking about them and writing them down on paper, like this is my truth, this is my belief?
ELIAS: That is a helpful method for you individually to be clarifying, but you are presenting your truths to yourself through experience.
PAUL: Let me jump to some other questions, if youíre okay.
ELIAS: Very well.
PAUL: Have any future focuses of mine tried to contact me recently?
PAUL: Is the manner of their contacting me in objective actions or something like ringing in my right ear?
PAUL: What is the ringing in my left ear, then, like an 11:11 dimension contact?
ELIAS: Yes, yes.
PAUL: So, my right ear is future focuses and my left ear is 11:11?
PAUL: Cool! How many future focuses do I have?
ELIAS: And your impression?
PAUL: I wrote down 36, but I was initially thinking itís 36 in this timeframe... But I think 36.
ELIAS: Somewhat more.
PAUL: Okay, weíll say 42, then.
PAUL: Cool! How many focuses do I have in this present timeframe? Iím going to say something like three.
ELIAS: Other than yourself?
PAUL: Is Ionaís friend Robert from Ohio a focus of mine?
ELIAS: No, counterpart.
PAUL: She seemed to think thereís an association, but counterpartís close enough. Is my 11:11 focus name Ataris?
PAUL: So, heís the one thatís... Is it a he or she?
ELIAS: You may translate in association with gender and express male.
PAUL: And heís the one thatís been primarily ringing in my left ear?
PAUL: Does he want something besides just making me aware of that dimension?
ELIAS: No, for that focusís awareness has been sparked by your energy and your awareness of its existence and your willingness to generate an openness, and therefore, there is a responsiveness.
PAUL: So itís just a recognition of ďhi, Iím here,Ē and thereís no further communication?
ELIAS: Presently, yes.
PAUL: Is Ioís 11:11 focus name Ellusion? With an ďE.Ē
ELIAS: The name is correct, but with an ďA.Ē
PAUL: Thatís kind of cool. Is my Alterversity name Raquel?
PAUL: Oh, well, I was close. Hereís one Iím a little confused on. My Dreamwalker name, I got two different names, one from meditation, one from just a quick impression. One was Fwoshi, F-W-O-S-H-I. The other one is Tlana, T-L-A-N-A.
ELIAS: The second.
PAUL: Someone on the Elias list got the impression that I am Sargon. Is that true? The focus of Sargon, that historical figure?
PAUL: Thatís kind of cool.
Hereís something that happens a lot lately, and I donít know whoís up to this. Iíve lost and sometimes found several things, from a phone handset to a driverís license to a TV changer, and Iím still missing my jacket liner. The question is who shifted them and did they slide into another dimension?
ELIAS: YOU shifted them, and yes.
PAUL: Why did I shift them into another dimension?
ELIAS: Temporarily, to express an illustration to yourself. First of all, to illustrate to yourself that you do manipulate energy and that you do create occurrences, and regardless of whether you incorporate an explanation for those occurrences or not, you are illustrating to yourself how easily it is expressed and without planning and without anticipating, and how automatically you may generate different actions of creating and manipulating. Which is significant, for you lean in a tendency to focus your attention in association with thought quite heavily. In that action Ė it is not bad Ė but many times you generate more effort than is necessary. You are illustrating to yourself how you generate occurrences without effort, and without incorporating a plan of how you shall accomplish it, you merely do.
PAUL: I understand. Why is it then that I havenít retrieved my jacket liner?
ELIAS: For you have not chosen that yet.
PAUL: Well, Iím not aware of my choosing part in this exercise!
ELIAS: Ah, and this is also the point, to be paying attention to that element of you that is choosing, for it is generating the doing.
PAUL: Is there a quick little exercise that I could do to help me be more effective at being aware of my choosing part?
ELIAS: I may express an exercise to you that I have offered previously with other individuals, in the incorporation of one day and the genuine noticing and paying attention to every action that you incorporate within that one day, regardless of how insignificant it appears to you.
PAUL: Is this in a transcript?
PAUL: Who was that someone? Iíll just look it up. I vaguely remember this.
ELIAS: I have expressed this exercise with Castille specifically. (1)
PAUL: Iíll look it up. Thanks!
ELIAS: Very well.
PAUL: Many seasons this fall, I noticed road construction being on the right side of the road, narrowing the traffic to one lane. What is the objective imagery or communication to myself?
ELIAS: And what is your impression?
PAUL: I had two, and they seem almost different. One was constraining my flow. Another one was more like a positive twist to it, like repairing or fixing or enhancing. I wasnít sure which one it was.
ELIAS: In actuality, they are not at odds, and both of your impressions are somewhat correct. For in association with this wave in consciousness that is occurring presently, there is an automatic movement into the expression of generating more obviously more absolutes and being aware of what you are expressing in absolutes, which may be viewed as restrictive initially. But it is purposeful, for in expressing more of an intensity and an obviousness of those beliefs that you generate in absolute, you are, in a manner of speaking, paving your own way to expanding and widening even more, for you are allowing this movement in awareness to generate more of an understanding and subsequently more of an acceptance.
PAUL: Cool. How about this dream where I was on a circular doughnut-shaped planet or large ship and I was in constant struggles or battles against these other forces, these other people? Interestingly enough, some of these people were called Thoth-people, like the Egyptian god Thoth who is one of my focuses. I was puzzled by this, since Iím the focus of him. Why would I be doing battle with people that were called the Thoth-people?
ELIAS: Unfamiliarity. This dream imagery concerns unfamiliarity.
PAUL: Oh, so I should have been shaking their hands instead of trying to stop them?
ELIAS: Not necessarily. It is significant imagery concerning unfamiliarity and the automatic response to it. In that, you allow yourself information concerning unfamiliarity and that it is acceptable to not overwhelm yourself with attempting to be immediately accepting or even welcoming of unfamiliarity, for you do not incorporate an understanding yet of what some unfamiliar expressions are or how you shall interact in association with them, how you evaluate them, or whether they fit into your changing preferences.
PAUL: Got it. I think I got it.
ELIAS: Therefore, there is a time framework in which it is a natural expression that you would be experiencing some struggle or some skepticism in an evaluation of what fits in association with your preferences and what does not.
PAUL: I have spoken these past several months some words that Iím not a hundred percent objectively aware of what the communication is. The words are dak-bah, shikana and dee-shpaka. My impressions are dak-bah is some type of Egyptian phrase, shikana is some type of Native American phrase and dee-shpaka is some type of 11:11 phrase.
ELIAS: The second two are correct. The first is associated with another dimension.
PAUL: Do you want to tell me who? (Laughing, and Elias laughs) Or better yet, tell me what the communication or what the word meant.
ELIAS: And what is your impression?
PAUL: The word ďbahĒ in Egyptian hieroglyphics means something about the spirit or the essence of oneself. I donít know about dak-bah, Iím assuming itís something like that, that thereís a communication about a deeper level of association with this.
ELIAS: Which the communication of all three is the same. Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: That communication then is just a recognition of a deeper level of association with all of us?
ELIAS: Yes, and the appreciation of you as essence.
PAUL: Am I on the path to having a film studio option my books, all three of my books, this year?
ELIAS: (Laughs) And this would be the same type of question that you began with!
PAUL: Well, Iím persistent, I guess, arenít I?
ELIAS: I may express to you, you incorporate a potential but it is your choice.
PAUL: That potential, Iím suspecting, is quite high.
I had a dream a while back and itís something to do with a type of formula. The only thing I recall is the word ďcross-catching.Ē What was that about?
ELIAS: And your impression?
PAUL: Mapping a direction.
ELIAS: I may express to you, this is another interjection from what you associate as a future focus. The phrase is associated with configuring energy in a particular manner which generates the action of movement between physical dimensions.
PAUL: Oh, cool! So one of my future focuses is helping me see this formula so I can potentially slide between dimensions?
PAUL: So this future focus is... Why? Itís a future focus?
PAUL: But he wants to allow me to slide through physical dimensions, not necessarily to a future time?
ELIAS: As a curiosity. Let me express to you, within this time framework, you are all widening your awarenesses, and therefore you are also generating an expression in energy of openness. That is recognized by future focuses, for they are familiar with tapping into other energies and generating what you would term to be contact, so to speak, with other focuses. They are aware that you are exploring and that you are curious and that you express desires to be expanding your experiences and experimenting with your abilities.
In this, each of you that incorporates these types of desires and expresses an interest in future focuses, that allows for an opening. In that opening, the future focuses that you incorporate that choose to be interactive tap into what they view as your curiosity now or what would spark an interest with you now. Therefore, they choose specific expressions to incorporate in communication with each of you.
PAUL: What is the entire formula, or is cross-catching the only thing I need to worry about focusing on?
ELIAS: That is the identification of the formula, so to speak.
PAUL: Who is the lead future focus that I could meditate or focus dream-wise on to continue this exploration that they want me to pursue? Is there a name I should be focusing on to help?
ELIAS: The individualís name is Samuel.
PAUL: Two thousand forty-six? (Laughs) I donít know; I was just throwing that out there.
ELIAS: The 46 is correct, but not the 20.
PAUL: Okay, 2146.
ELIAS: (Laughs) Yes.
PAUL: Okay, cool. I will work on talking to Samuel, then.
In meditation a while back I had the impression of the words ďwind chartĒ and ďAlifa.Ē What do they mean?
ELIAS: And your impression?
PAUL: ďWind chartĒ only means something about directional things. And Alifa, the only thing that came through is itís some type of African fetish god.
ELIAS: Or wishes it were! (Laughs) That is a focus.
PAUL: This dimension?
PAUL: This timeframe?
ELIAS: No, previous.
PAUL: Do they live in Africa?
PAUL: Sounds like more of a witch doctor type of person.
ELIAS: And wishes that he were a god. (Laughing)
PAUL: How long ago was this?
ELIAS: Approximately 150 years.
PAUL: Whatís this wind chart, then?
ELIAS: Now; in association with the information of this individual, now what would be your impression?
PAUL: That they were a weather-worker of some type, like they could bring rain or they could bring drought.
PAUL: So, they were a weather-worker?
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking.
PAUL: Were they successful at that?
ELIAS: At times. (Chuckles)
PAUL: I had a dream of being some type of elf leader or wizard who tried to rally the elves to take one big gamble to defeat these oncoming evil forces. I noticed my powers and spells were weakened, even as I forced them with all my will to work. What was going on?
ELIAS: This is associated with an other-dimensional focus, one in which many individuals recently have been connecting to and offering themselves information concerning it.
PAUL: So I was an elf wizard of some type?
PAUL: Oh, cool! Care to give me his name?
ELIAS: I shall allow you to investigate.
PAUL: Will this elf wizard recognize my attempts to try to pull in information and assist in an ease?
ELIAS: If you are expressing an openness to that, yes.
PAUL: Cool, Iíll do so.
Another dream, I was watching this woman train others how to use this rocket backpack at dusk. She initially did not let me use it till I told her I had some experience skydiving. Later she kissed me under this darkened overpass, and I noticed she had a tiny elf-like mouth. Who was she and what dimension was this?
ELIAS: This is imagery that you have presented to yourself in association with a desire to be moving and expressing your own freedom and generating an appreciation of that, and also an expression of hesitancy in relation to the actual expression of that freedom.
PAUL: Interesting. Iíve had a couple dreams of time dilation or diluting. Once I was a scientist working with these fish that had some type of time diluting capabilities, a group of three scientists. Then I had another dream where I tried to secure a key to a time machine, something that would control time or dilute time, make it more flexible. What was going on there, just imagery?
ELIAS: This dream imagery is also associated with future focuses and associated with different actions that they are experiencing.
PAUL: So all those dreams dealt with future focuses?
PAUL: There was some type of fish that had time diluting capabilities?
ELIAS: That is a translation.
PAUL: Was Samuel involved with one of these?
PAUL: Iíll ask him.
Elan, Ioís essence twin, had recurring dreams of panic about losing her. What is the message to him about this?
ELIAS: The message, so to speak, concerns value.
PAUL: Value of their association?
ELIAS: It concerns value in general, and what is valued and whether that is appreciated or not.
PAUL: Iíll pass that on. Iím sure sheíll be excited about that.
I had a dream about this woman giving me a gift of five very ancient psychology books. What was the meaning of this or was this just the viewing of another dimension?
ELIAS: Offer your impression. It is not associated with another dimension.
PAUL: Itís a recognition of my expansion into this area of greater potentialities of self.
ELIAS: Yes, that information may be gained within yourself not merely in association with future but also with what you associate as past, and that there are some past focuses that incorporate quite an awareness also.
PAUL: Of me?
ELIAS: Of consciousness.
PAUL: What is the communication to me of my daughter getting a mild concussion in a basketball game one week and then hurting her leg and her neck in another week?
ELIAS: And what is your assessment of...
PAUL: (Laughs) I donít know, I guess vulnerability jumps out at me. Protection is a truth of mine and I want to protect her from getting hurt.
PAUL: Itís a recognition of my protection belief, right?
PAUL: Iím at least aware of it, but...
ELIAS: (Laughs) And I am acknowledging of you.
PAUL: Thank you! Is Almoc the name of my Roman sailor focus in 1066?
PAUL: Cool. How best can I tell the difference between my impressions, the use of my imagination, versus guessing? Sometimes Iím not sure when Iím doing one versus the other. Is there something I can look for to say this is really coming as an impression versus an imagination or even a guess?
ELIAS: Imagination is not to be discounted, for that is an avenue of communication.
PAUL: So, imagination and impressions are almost like the same?
ELIAS: Somewhat, but they are somewhat different, for...
PAUL: How would I distinguish between impressions, imagination, and a guess? Iím trying to recognize... Sometimes I recognize the differences, sometimes I donít.
ELIAS: Generally speaking, impressions shall be expressed unexpectedly, and initially may appear to you to be unfounded or questionable.
PAUL: Versus imagination where youíre already focused on that and generate... Okay.
ELIAS: Imagination is, generally speaking, what you view as fantasy Ė but is not fantasy Ė and is more colorful, which is what incorporates the element of inspiration.
PAUL: How do I factor out guessing then from those two?
ELIAS: Guessing generally is prompted. You already incorporate a direction. You already incorporate a question or an idea, and you are incorporating what is known and generating some type of logic or rationale.
PAUL: Is playing that NTN game at the bar good practice for using my impressions versus my guesses?
ELIAS: Yes. (32 seconds of silence)
PAUL: Are you still there? I didnít hear an answer.
PAUL: So you are the man on the blue boat? For some reason, I didnít hear it on the phone. Thatís weird.
What is the value for me of practicing my out of focus stare, and is that a technique that I could use to shift matter and move objects around?
ELIAS: It can be. It also can be incorporated as a method to be defocusing your attention.
PAUL: So I can do that when Iím driving a car, and just be aware that I wonít get into an accident unless itís my choice.
PAUL: Well, Elias, I see weíre about... Unless thereís something you want to throw on as a last statement to me to assist my movement in the truth wave.
ELIAS: Merely be paying attention and remember what we have discussed in evaluating these truths. Remember...
(Tape discontinues at 1 hour, 3 minutes.)
ELIAS: Now; my suggestion to you is to offer yourself one day, one entire day, in which you allow yourself to pay attention to you. Pay attention to what you are actually physically doing in each moment. Do not concern yourself in this one day with what you may be communicating to yourself through emotions. Merely move your attention to what you are actually physically engaging in each moment, regardless of how unimportant it may seem. The significance of this action is this offers you an experience of moving your attention to another function other than merely thought. It also offers you the opportunity to genuinely be noticing and viewing what you actually physically engage in what you term to be an ordinary day.
Let me express to you, all of the actions that you engage in one day, all of the insignificant movements that you generate in one day are all influenced by beliefs. All of the automatic actions and responses that you express in one day are all motivated by your beliefs. But you are unaware of the influence of your beliefs, for you are not paying attention to what you are actually physically doing, and in this, you reinforce the expression of automatic responses and you reinforce all of these expressed beliefs.
As you reinforce all of these expressed beliefs in a time framework in which you create an event such as re-establishing an interaction with your former employer or contemplating re-establishing interaction with Leezar Ė these are actions that you consider to be significant, important and large Ė your response to these actions is influenced by the beliefs that are expressed in each day that influence all of the other actions that you engage that you do not pay attention to. (17-second pause)
LETTY: Wow. Thatís a thought-full!
ELIAS: The manner in which you shuffle your paperwork during your day, the manner in which you engage other individuals, how you interact with other individuals, how you express actions in your lunch hour, what you choose to consume, what you speak of in conversation, time frameworks in which you close your door Ė all of these actions that you deem to be insignificant and you express no thought in relation to are all actions that are motivated by beliefs that are expressed continuously. These are the actions that offer you the clarity in information concerning what you naturally generate, what beliefs influence these actions.
The same beliefs are expressed in the actions that you generate in relation to the subjects that you deem to be significant or important. The difference is that in all these actions, you are NOT incorporating thought. You are not thinking concerning all of these automatic actions Ė you are doing. And in relation to the subjects that you view to be important, you are thinking and you are not paying attention to the doing.
Digests: find out more about attention.
