“Viewing Reality as a Game”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Paul (Xutrah).
Vic’s note: This session begins at 12:03 p.m. There is no arrival time because Elias is already present, as this session directly follows another.
PAUL: Bon jour, mon frére!
ELIAS: Bon jour!
PAUL: It is very good to be interacting with you objectivelyfor a change. (Elias chuckles) I particularly appreciated the creation we had a couple nights ago, of the energy butterfly. It was very nice.
ELIAS: Ah, I am quite fond of butterflies!
PAUL: Ah, as I am as well. (Sighing) I wish we could just sit down around a table and chat, and....
ELIAS: And perhaps at some time framework within your linear time expression, you may create this!
PAUL: Ah, it is my desire.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: (Laughing) Let’s see. A dear friend of mine, Tom – I would like his essence name and all of his particulars.
ELIAS: Ah, the particulars! (Chuckling) Very well. (Pause)
Essence name, Redi; R-E-D-I. (reh-dee’) Essence family, Vold; alignment, Tumold; orientation, common.
PAUL: Okay. I was investigating of shared focuses with Tom, and I came up with, my focus was named Borham, his was Annita, in Scotland around 1512. He was a blond lady of fine clothes and standing, but had a drooping left face, and I was a hunchback. Can you confirm that?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: Interesting, the counterpart action that we were engaging in. (Elias chuckles)
So, another focus in which I have a question about intrusiveness. This is a past focus of mine, and her name was Miriam or Mirum, in perhaps 1860. She was experiencing anxiety which was disturbing of my sleep. When I investigated, I found her in the middle of a panic attack and I interacted with her. She was well aware of my presence, and I instructed, or shall I say, I went there with her. We breathed together. This calmed her anxiety, and perhaps not coincidentally, I had no trouble going to sleep after that. Could you comment on that intrusiveness, or even if it was?
ELIAS: I shall express to you that it is not intrusive. Let me identify to you what may be classified, so to speak, as an intrusive action that may be expressed within essence, for you shall not be intrusive to another essence, but you may be intrusive within essence to yourself.
In this, an action of intrusiveness between different focuses of essence would be an intentional action of projection to another focus and intentionally attempting to be altering aspects of the reality within that focus, knowing what you are creating objectively. This may be identified as an intrusive action.
Now; understand, you may not be creating another’s reality, not even another focus of your essence, for each focus holds choice. In this, each holds the expression of free will and creates their own reality. Therefore, you may not be creating a reality for another focus, nor may it be creating a reality for you. You also may not be thrusting a reality upon another focus, nor may it be thrusting upon you.
But you may be projecting to another focus quite intentionally, and you may hold an objective awareness of what you are engaging, and you may influence that reality by altering certain expressions within that reality, and therefore strongly influencing the reality of the other focus, and this may be considered within essence as intrusive.
Now; as to the action which has occurred between yourself and this other focus concerning your sleep, this is not an intrusive action. This is not an intentional interruption of your sleep state by another focus, nor may the other focus be creating that type of action. YOU choose to be interrupting of your sleep state or to not be interrupting of your sleep state, for the other focus is not creating your reality.
In this, you have chosen to be interactive with another focus to allow yourself the viewing and the realistic recognition objectively that you may be not merely viewing another focus, but you may also be interactive with another focus, if you are so choosing, and this validates to you and reinforces within you your ability to be manipulating energy as you choose.
Now; this also allows you the opportunity to view that as you are thinning the veils between different focuses of attention of essence, you also may continue to maintain your individuality and your identity within your particular focus of attention, and not confuse that with other expressions of essence. Are you understanding?
PAUL: Yes, I am. A future focus which I contacted – who I first met in the dream state and had a similar type of interaction with – I was curious as to why or actually how he was projecting his thoughts into the minds of others, and I had a similar type of experience. We went inward to be more realizing of essence, and if I am understanding you correctly, that also falls under a non-intrusiveness type of action. Is that true?
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
ELIAS: You may be quite interactive with other aspects of essence, with other focuses of your essence, and you may be offering yourself information or you may be creating in cooperation with other focuses, and not be intrusive.
But as you move into the expression of attempting intentionally to be altering the expressions and reality of another focus of essence to be fitting what YOU want within THIS focus, this is a different type of expression, and this is not entirely within the expression of cooperation, and therefore is intrusive.
PAUL: Yes, I believe I understand. It is a matter of intent and desire on my part.
PAUL: Excellent. Hey, a question – do you ever get surprised?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! I may express to you, my friend, that I engage surprise and surprising myself continuously! The exploration of consciousness – the discovery of self in different expressions and areas of consciousness – is a continual surprise within exploring of all that is. Therefore, yes, I engage surprise, although the expression of that surprise may not be exhibited in the same manner that you are familiar with within your physical focus.
PAUL: You explained it exactly the way I was hoping you would!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: (Laughing) Lots of fun – that’s the way I look at it!
ELIAS: Quite! (Chuckling)
PAUL: Hey, I have a tile entry.
ELIAS: Very well.
PAUL: To briefly describe it, on the upper right-hand side is blue, which fades into rose color, a pinkish. There is a black line which is ... well, it looks a little like a seagull on its side, with two dots on the inside to the left, which is a greenish color. I’d like to align this tile with Sumari ... and can I do Borledim at the same time?
ELIAS: And where shall you be placing the entry?
PAUL: Well, I believe that it is – if I’m correct in this – an action of movement of energy from one dimension to another. Now, does that align with a family?
ELIAS: Therefore, you may be entering this tile in relation to these two families. And where shall you place this within your game – in connection with physically focused essences, in connection with families, or in connection with nonphysical essences?
PAUL: Ah, this is ... I understand now. This is, I believe, a counterpart action between myself and my son Matthew.
ELIAS: Therefore, I inquire again, where shall you place the tile?
PAUL: Hmm. It shall be placed ... maybe I’m not understanding the game of tiles well enough. It shall be placed in conjunction with physical manifestations, and the interaction between physically focused individuals.
ELIAS: Very well. It shall be placed within physically focused connecting essences, and I shall be accepting of this tile, and express to you one point.
PAUL: Thank you! (Elias chuckles) Have you any comment on that interaction between me and my son? (Pause) Let me be more specific. I believe that it is counterpart action that we are engaging in. I also have the impression that in another focus, our parental roles are reversed, and this is part of the source of the contentiousness between us.
ELIAS: And you are correct.
Now; what information does this offer to you, and how shall you approach this situation in offering this information to yourself?
PAUL: It is clearly an issue of presenting belief systems to myself of parental responsibility, and the whole relationship is about how I do not create his reality, nor does he create mine, and the allowance of the free flow of energy between us, which I’m blocking in many respects.
ELIAS: Therefore, let me inquire of you, how shall you approach this situation and attempt to be altering your perception to be altering of that reality?
PAUL: Well, the answer to allmy problems today is acceptance.
ELIAS: Ah, quite! Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: (Laughing) Yes, and pursuant to that, I have been engaging my acceptance 101 and 102.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! And I shall be acknowledging of you in this action! (Chuckling)
PAUL: It has been, in the last couple of days, actually very, very insightful. I finally understand what you mean when you say “in the now,” for when I hold onto my energy too tightly, it is because I am not living nowly. I am usually living futurely, and the recognition of that has been very freeing.
It is quite interesting also, the many times in which you may be associating and projecting your attention pastly in relation to projecting your attention futurely, but the dominant aspect that you recognize is the projection of your attention futurely. The other is occurring simultaneously, but you are paying more attention to projecting your attention futurely.
In this, you may offer yourself much information and it may be quite helpful if you are allowing yourself to practice recognizing how you project your attention in BOTH of these directions simultaneously, and which is overriding of the other [and] which is underlying of the other. For as you offer yourself a viewing of both of these projections which occur simultaneously, you also enrich the information that you offer to yourself, for you allow yourself a greater understanding of your motivation, and in this, you allow yourself to stop and view more of your choices, which offers you much more of an expression of freedom.
I am encouraging of you to be continuing to hold your attention within the now. I am also quite realistically recognizing that you do NOT hold your attention within the now continuously.
Therefore, within the time frameworks that you are not holding your attention within the now, rather than chastising yourself or discounting yourself for not holding your attention within the now, and projecting futurely or pastly or simultaneously both, allow yourself to view this action also as an opportunity for exploration, for it offers you information, and in this, is helpful in allowing you to hold your attention within the now.
PAUL: Oh, interesting.
ELIAS: Let me express to you, my friend, it may be offering an ease to you in your movement within all of these actions and concepts if you are allowing yourself to view them as a game; if you are allowing yourself to be an explorer and creating these actions as a game playfully, rather than expressing seriousness to yourself and therefore reinforcing judgments.
PAUL: Oh, that sounds so easy!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: (Laughing) But yes, on sporadic occasions I’ve been able to do that, and it is a lot of fun. I agree with that. And yes, I continue to “should” upon myself!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
PAUL: This is so much fun. Ah, transition – I feel that I entered transition within physical focus in 1993. Is that true? (Pause)
ELIAS: Yes, you are correct.
PAUL: Within the brief span of physical linear time that we have, could you compare and contrast transition within physical focus to the trauma which is being engendered by the shift? (Pause)
ELIAS: First of all, I shall express to you that I am not in agreement with the action of comparison, for this reinforces an automatic action that you all engage continuously within physical focus, which reinforces the strength of expression of duplicity.
PAUL: Hmm! Okay.
ELIAS: I may express to you that the action of transition moves in a different quality of expression than that which may be associated with the expression of trauma within this shift. Transition does not necessarily incorporate an expression of trauma, although it may, at times of great confusion. But it does not necessarily, for the most part, create an expression of trauma.
Many of the movements and actions of transition may be expressed in varying degrees of confusion, for you are allowing yourself to be introducing yourself to other aspects of reality which are quite unfamiliar to you.
Now; there are many expressions of transition which [are] engaged within physical focus that may be quite similar to expressions of this shift in consciousness, although there are also many expressions of differences. In this, you may be experiencing individually an expression of trauma [in] engaging transition and the movement of this shift simultaneously, which many individuals are.
PAUL: I really like Mylo’s analogy of, I feel that if belief systems are bullets, I am on the wrong end of the machine gun at the moment!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! And presenting to yourself many of the aspects of these belief systems! (Laughing)
PAUL: Oh, let me tell ya, there are a bunch of ‘em!
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha! But let me express to you that this is an opportunity to be allowing yourself movement into acceptance.
PAUL: Yes, and I do recognize it as that.
ELIAS: This is not to say that you do not engage challenge! (Laughing)
PAUL: Yeah, and the interesting thing is that I’m presenting the challenge to me!
ELIAS: Quite! This may be an expression of difficulty many times, but YOU are what is choosing the presentment. This is a choice.
PAUL: Indeed, and if I understand you correctly, the reason why I am engaging this choice to be addressing to so many belief systems is to ease my movement after disengagement. There must be a purpose behind that. (Pause)
ELIAS: In a manner of speaking. No choice that you create is wasteful. All choices that you engage are purposeful. Therefore, in a manner of speaking, this choice to be engaging the action of transition within physical focus is also purposeful, in easing your movement within nonphysical aspects of transition.
In this, it is dependent upon the individual, and your choice of direction and your choice in relation to your movement. Many individuals are choosing to be engaging transition, and also participating within this shift in consciousness.
In this, they offer themselves the opportunity to be exploring an expansive expression of consciousness within physical expressions, but also offering themselves the opportunity, yourself also, to be moving into nonphysical aspects of transition, and moving quickly into other areas of consciousness.
For as I have stated, there are some aspects of this shift in consciousness that are similar to some of the expressions of transition. Therefore, as this becomes the accepted norm, so to speak, within the physical dimension, the movement in nonphysical action of transition alters and becomes merely the action of shedding the beliefs and the objective awareness, rather than familiarizing yourself with all of the beliefs and shedding of them and shedding of the objective awareness.
What you are accomplishing in this action is to be, in a manner of speaking, eliminating one of the steps or aspects of movement that occurs within nonphysical transition by engaging that within your physical focus. The very action of the shift shall be, futurely, creating the elimination of that expression within nonphysical transition, for you shall be familiar with that action within physical focus.
In this, you are not creating a movement of transition within physical focus to be hurrying or speeding your movement within nonphysical focus. You are merely creating a different type of experience. This shift in consciousness allows for a greater expression and ease of individuals to be engaging transition within physical focus. Therefore, you are engaging this. You are allowing yourselves that experience.
You are not hurrying, as I have stated, your movement. You are not racing, and you are not in competition. You are merely, in a manner of speaking, taking advantage of what you are creating within this physical dimension. You create a shift in consciousness which facilitates more of an ease of engaging transition within physical focus. Therefore, many, many, many more individuals are engaging that action within physical focus than have previously within your history.
PAUL: Interesting. Okay, I believe our time is about up. I wish not to be taxing upon Michael.
ELIAS: Ha ha ha! Very well.
PAUL: Well, one comment is, I’m very grateful for the information that you gave me last session , to be able to re-cognize or recognize my intent in this focus, for it has been immensely helpful in easing my movement, especially with interaction with other individuals.
ELIAS: You are quite welcome.
PAUL: On that, I guess we shall be meeting next time.
ELIAS: Very well! I shall anticipate that meeting, and I shall offer to you also great affection and encouragement in your movement, and your understanding of your movement objectively. To you, my friend, this day, in great affection, au revoir.
PAUL: Au revoir.
Elias departs at 12:43 p.m.
