“The Present Wave in Duplicity”
“The No-Conflict Exercise”
“There Is No Better”
Participants: Mary (Michael) and Joe (Holden).
Elias arrives at 10:16 AM. (Arrival time is 22 seconds.)
ELIAS: Good morning!
JOE: Good morning, old friend! (Elias chuckles)
Elias, I’ve gotten myself into a quagmire of confusion here, and I’m hoping maybe you can help me with this.
ELIAS: Very well.
JOE: Okay. Let’s se, how do I start this? I’ve been noticing or attempting to notice everything that’s happening in the now with what has been going on with my day-to-day activities, and it has brought to light some very, very strong belief systems that I am starting to recognize. But I really just don’t know quite how to deal with this, and so I’m turning to you in this respect.
We had a lightning storm here, and we got hit by lightening, and some funny things happened. But anyway, we had an air compressor that might or might not be compromised by the lightening storm, so the insurance company agreed to pay for a new air compressor, so I went to the store and I looked at air compressors.
Now, there’s a much larger air compressor there than the one that I have, and I’m thinking to myself, “Guilt doesn’t exist; there is no good and bad. Maybe I should just get this larger air compressor, which would be awfully nice to have.” But it’s not the same type of air compressor that’s being replaced. It’s much larger. It’s not of equal value, in monetary terms. Then I get into a fight with myself because of my belief systems in right and wrong, and the fact that I’m noticing these belief systems and how they affect me.
I look at the larger air compressor, which I’d love to have, knowing about right and wrong and that the insurance company probably without question would pay for it. But by the same token, I have this belief system that says, “The right thing to do is to get one of comparable value because that would be fair.” I’m battling with myself back and forth and I’m observing these belief systems and I’m remembering what you’ve said about guilt, but knowing damn well that if I go ahead and get this larger air compressor, I’m going to feel guilty about it.
Then I get to thinking about no conflict and I think, “If I get this larger air compressor, I’m going to be in conflict with myself, and if I’m in conflict with myself and I have a bout of conscience about this whole thing, am I somehow subjectively, in my reality creations, going to punish myself for getting this larger air compressor?”
In the end, I end up – realizing that I have strong belief systems and making the choice that I really don’t want any conflict and I’m really not sure as to how my guilt is going to affect my reality creations, which up to now have been very good and I’m doing very well in that respect – I choose the no-conflict scenario and get the smaller air compressor that was much closer in equal value to the one that may have been compromised.
That creates tremendous variations in everything, in the way that I start to feel about things, and I just wonder if you might comment on that and tell me in actuality what’s happening versus what I believe, and my alignment with the belief systems of right and wrong, guilt/no guilt, the whole nine yards.
ELIAS: First of all, let me express to you that what you feel and what you are experiencing and what you are creating in actuality is what is occurring, for this is what you are creating within your reality within the moment, and this is not to be discounted.
But I am understanding of the direction of your question and of your confusion.
Now; let me express to you, one very strong influencing factor in this particular situation and scenario that you have created is that you are responding to energy in the wave in consciousness which is occurring presently addressing to duplicity.
You, being a manifestation of essence which is belonging to the family of Sumafi, are beginning within this wave in consciousness to be noticing more intensely, and – in a figurative manner of speaking, but also quite realistically in your reality – you are battling with this particular belief system, in your interaction with it and your noticing and identification of it.
You have presented yourself with a scenario. You incorporate a physical object that you perceive needs be replaced. You have created a situation in which the financial aspect of the replacement of this object shall be accomplished, and you present before yourself the choice of acquiring one type of this object or another type.
Now; the object itself matters not. The physical creation itself matters not, which you are aware of.
You are already recognizing that what holds significance in this situation is your noticing of your responses and your actions and your motivation for creating your individual choices in relation to other individuals and what you believe.
In this, you present yourself with a scenario that offers you the opportunity to view how influenced you are individually by different aspects of duplicity, and how intensely strong these aspects of duplicity are in their influence of your perception.
Now; in this, you choose to be engaging the no-conflict exercise. You present yourself with the objective recognition of this exercise, you offer the scenarios to yourself, and in that exercise, you create a choice.
Subsequent to the choice that you have created in choosing to be offering yourself the least conflict in alignment with the recognized beliefs which are influencing of you, you move yourself into another conflict concerning your no-conflict scenario.
For once you have chosen your no-conflict scenario, you are questioning and doubting of yourself in your choice of no conflict, for you assess that by choosing your no-conflict scenario, you are allowing yourself to be aligning with the existing belief systems, and therefore, in your perception, reinforcing those existing belief systems and not trusting yourself in your ability to be moving through those existing belief systems.
Therefore, you create another conflict, which you also incorporate the guilt that you were attempting to avoid in relation to the no-conflict choice!
You were attempting to avoid the guilt in relation to other individuals or the company, so to speak, which is providing you with the funds to be acquiring the object. You wish not to be incorporating guilt concerning their participation, and you choose your no-conflict scenario.
But subsequently, you DO incorporate guilt in relation to yourself, that you are not accomplishing well enough within your reality, for you are not trusting yourself and you are not moving through your existing belief systems, and therefore you place judgment upon yourself, and this creates confusion.
Now; as I have stated, there is a large element of this scenario which is influenced by this wave in consciousness which is occurring presently. Within a different time framework, you may have chosen your no-conflict scenario, and not followed that scenario with the incorporation of conflict concerning your choice.
But within this time framework, there is a tremendous movement of energy which you are participating within, and belonging to the Sumafi family, you are more intensely responding to this particular movement of energy than would you be were you belonging to a different essence family. But this particular wave in consciousness addressing to this particular belief system of duplicity creates more of an element of friction within individuals that are belonging to and also aligning with the essence family of Sumafi, for this belief system creates friction in the intent with the Sumafi family and their natural expression.
Now; as to the conflict that you have created in this situation, you offer yourself the opportunity to view that these aspects of duplicity are in actuality quite strong and quite affecting.
But let me also express to you, where you have incorporated confusion – as you allow the influence of the duplicity to cloud your viewing of your creations – is that in actuality, the choice to be creating your no-conflict scenario is NOT in actuality reinforcing of the existing belief.
It appears surfacely to you that this is what you are creating, but in actuality, by choosing the no-conflict scenario in this physical situation, you are recognizing – or you have recognized individually in this situation – that you do hold strongly-influencing beliefs in this situation.
You are acknowledging those beliefs in the recognition of them. You are recognizing that if you are forcing your energy in the direction of attempting to forcibly override the existing belief system that you hold, you shall be incorporating guilt, and that guilt IS influencing of your energy and your interactions, for you shall project outwardly the energy that you are creating inwardly.
Therefore, if you are creating the energy associated with guilt, you shall project that outwardly and be affecting of your reality in your interactions in every other area – with other individuals, with other situations – for you are responding to what you are viewing within yourself. Guilt is a tremendous judgment upon self, and as you create a tremendous judgment upon self, you project that energy outward and you affect your interaction with all of your reality.
Now; by choosing your no-conflict scenario, you neutralize the situation. You neutralize the energy of the belief in that moment. You acknowledge that you hold this belief and you lend no energy to its perpetuation, for you are not creating a judgment upon it. You are merely recognizing it and acknowledging it and allowing yourself to create a choice, knowing that you shall be creating certain responses if you are engaging a different choice.
Now; I have expressed to individuals previously with respect to their movement concerning [the] medical profession, and in this, I have spoken with you concerning your partner with respect to these types of beliefs.
They are the same. The scenario underlyingly is the same. The action which occurs is the same. The belief may construct itself differently, but the action is the same.
And in this, an individual may create, as we have spoken previously, a dis-ease or an illness or a malfunction, and they may choose not to be interactive with individuals within the medical profession, for they view that to be a perpetuation of their beliefs that they hold concerning the medical profession, and they also view it to be a reinforcement of their own lack of trust of their ability to be healing themselves or to be creating their reality.
And in actuality, as they fight against those types of interactions and they create those types of judgments concerning those choices, they are in actuality reinforcing the very action that they wish not to be reinforcing.
Whereas were that same individual to choose interaction with their physicians, recognizing that they do align with certain beliefs concerning the abilities of their physicians, the acknowledgment of that belief and the lack of judgment of it and the movement into compliance with it temporarily in actuality neutralizes elements of that aspect of the belief itself, and in actuality reinforces the individual’s trust of self.
In the same manner, your choice for your least-conflict scenario in this situation with your machine reinforces your trust of yourself that you may choose this direction, and it is not wrong. It is not right. It is not better or worse. It is merely a choice, and it is, in your terms, an informed choice, for you have created the choice intentionally objectively to be avoiding an anticipated more intense conflict, and one that you recognize shall be reinforcing of your expression of duplicity in guilt. (1)
Therefore, you choose in an objective informed manner, in trust of yourself that you ARE addressing to and noticing your beliefs and the influence of them, that you ARE addressing to these beliefs, and you are allowing yourself an ease in your movement.
Therefore, I express to you, in creating the no-conflict or the least-conflict scenario, you are in actuality accomplishing the very actions that you wish to be accomplishing, and reinforcing the very elements of yourself in acceptance and trust that you wish to be reinforcing.
Now; the other aspect of this scenario is your subsequent incorporation of self-guilt for the assessment that you perceive you have not been trusting of yourself and the doubt of self, and this is the element that is directly influenced by the wave in consciousness.
This wave in consciousness addressing to duplicity creates a tremendous movement in vicissitude, and in this, individuals as yourself that are belonging to this family of Sumafi shall be noticing and recognizing of the intensity of the influence of this particular belief system.
But I shall also express to you, take heart my friend, (chuckling) for this is an opportunity! Each time that you allow yourself to be noticing of these types of situations and scenarios, you also allow yourself to objectively view these influences and you allow yourself objective choice, and this is the point.
This is the action of this shift, to be moving your awareness of what you create within your reality into an objective intentional direction, that you shall be aware objectively, within each moment, of the choices that you are creating, and allow yourself more choices as you recognize what influences the choices that you automatically move into.
JOE: Well, let me ask you this. It would seem to me, after my own mental evaluation, for whatever it’s worth, that I recognized it, but I did not have the trust in myself to just make either choice without ... just trusting in myself that whatever choice I made was okay, and I realized – it hit me like a brick – that I had not anywhere come close to reaching that point yet.
ELIAS: Quite, and therefore you employ your no-conflict scenario ...
JOE: Right, exactly.
ELIAS: ... and move yourself into a reinforcement of your trust and acceptance.
I have expressed to all of you many times, you do hold the ability to instantaneously, spontaneously move into an expression of complete trust and acceptance of self.
I have also expressed to you that within the design of your reality physically and the strength of the belief systems that have been incorporated, which IS very much your reality, you all ARE – not merely shall be or have been, but ARE – creating a process, which is quite acceptable – it is not wrong or bad – and in this process of moving yourselves into acceptance and trust, you offer yourselves scenarios, such as the example that you have offered today.
And in this, you allow yourselves to physically view, to assess, to evaluate, to notice, to recognize, and to create choices, and ALL of this – within your process – allows you more of an objective understanding of yourself and of your reality.
In this, it is quite beneficial that you ARE creating a process, for in this process of moving yourselves into acceptance and trust in increments, you avoid many situations and circumstances and creations of trauma. You avoid overwhelming yourselves. You allow yourselves to view, in harmony with the movement of linear time – in a slow fashion, so to speak – how you have designed all of your reality and how you interact with it, and how YOU create all of your reality.
I have expressed to you previously, you have created a design in your physical reality, in relation to many of these beliefs, in an intensity that has become so very automatic within your reality that you are moving about within your reality upon what you term to be automatic pilot. You are not even paying attention to what you are creating.
Therefore, you have created a process in which, in increments, you begin noticing. You begin paying attention. You begin recognizing all that you are creating and all of the choices that you are creating within your reality, which in actuality offers you more choices.
JOE: So in this particular instance I recognized the strength of the belief systems, and in part the cause and effect. In this particular instance I chose not ... because of the least conflict, I chose not to go against those belief systems, which I knew were influencing of me. But as I do this more and more and more, I suspect there will come a time when I won’t be affected much by the alignment of the belief systems, and will be able to have enough trust in myself to do whatever it is I want to do at that particular time without feeling any guilt whatsoever.
ELIAS: You are correct.
JOE: Good! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!
JOE: Good! (Elias chuckles)
Elias, is there anything else you’d like to say on this subject? When I first was talking to Mary about this, I had half a notion to put this into the x-files and not let it be transcribed, but I think what’s said here today is pretty darn important. (Elias chuckles)
ELIAS: I shall express to you, as I have expressed many times previously, allow yourself to be continuing to hold your attention within the now, noticing what you are creating.
But incorporate a small affirmation temporarily, in which within these time frameworks that you begin to doubt and question yourself and the choices that you are engaging, affirm to yourself that the choices matter not. They are merely choices. They are not right or wrong. One choice is not better than another choice, and force in energy is, figuratively speaking, self-defeating. It moves contrary to your objective. Therefore, the less force that you employ in your choices, the more ease you ALLOW in your choices, the more you are in actuality reinforcing your own acceptance and trust of self.
Each time you begin doubt within yourself, attempt briefly to acknowledge yourself and to express to yourself that there is no better. You are acceptable and your choice is acceptable in its creation now, in whatever creation you have chosen. Are you understanding?
JOE: Well, let me ask you this. This is my interpretation of what you’re saying, and you can tell me if it’s right or wrong, as far as understanding and interpretation. Had I merely gone up there and not really thought about it, not really objectified the belief systems of right or wrong, but intuitively made the choice that I thought was best for me at the time, there would have been no force in energy. It would have just been an automatic response based on a trust in self rather than any other objective parameter.
ELIAS: I shall respond to you in the affirmative, but I shall also express to you in addition that affirming your assessment of this scenario – in had you created this or that – is irrelevant, for you created what you created and this is what we are addressing to, and what you may have created or what you might have created matters not, for it is not what you created.
Therefore, all that holds significance is what you HAVE created or what you ARE creating, not what may be created.
The “ifs” or the “shoulds” within your reality are illusions, and they hold no significance and no importance. What you DO create holds significance and importance. What your perception is holds significance and importance, for this is what you shall create – what your perception expresses.
Therefore, what I am expressing to you is not to be looking to what you may have or could have created in your choice, but what you HAVE created, and to be acknowledging of that; not to be acknowledging of what might be, but to be acknowledging of what IS.
JOE: But in that respect, Elias, I created “what is” based on a very strong belief system.
ELIAS: It matters not. You also acknowledged your recognition of that belief system, and in that recognition and that acknowledgment, you lent no energy in judgment of it.
You merely created a choice that offered you less conflict, and this is a choice that acknowledges your trust within yourself, that regardless that you align with beliefs, you are acceptable and your choices are acceptable. Are you understanding?
JOE: Yes I am, I think. But in choosing the choice of less conflict, I may have also admitted that in aligning with that belief system, I was giving myself or allowing myself less freedom than what I possibly should have or could have, and in taking the less-conflict scenario and allowing myself less freedom, I was also admitting to myself and acknowledging less of a trust in self than what I would like to have.
ELIAS: Ah, and this offers you the opportunity to view within yourself how you perceive some expressions within your reality or some movements within your reality to be better than other movements, and this is quite the point – allowing yourself to recognize the strength of the influence of the belief of duplicity. This is what expresses to you and dictates to you this perception that there are better methods, or that you yourself may be better if you are striving more and if you are creating in a better manner.
Vic’s note: The following was all delivered very intently.
And what I am expressing to you now is that there is no better. This is entirely a design and an illusion which is set forth through the influence of an aspect of the belief system of duplicity.
You are already best. You are already creating perfectly. Your beliefs are influencing your perception of yourself that you are not creating perfectly, and therefore you create judgments, and this sets in motion a very large wheel which moves quite rapidly, and it continues to turn and turn and turn, for as you create the judgment, you also reinforce the duplicity, which expresses once again to you that you are not adequate enough yet, that you could be creating better, that you will be experiencing no conflict at all IF you are creating better.
ALL of these expressions are influences of duplicity. ALL of these expressions camouflage the now and camouflage your perception, dictating to it that you are presently not adequate enough, not good enough, and not perfect.
And therefore, in the influence of that belief, as it dictates to your perception, you create an actual reality in which you view yourself to not be accomplishing perfectly yet, and you reinforce this and reinforce this and reinforce this with judgment and the continual perpetuation of viewing that you need be creating better.
I shall express to you what shall be better – what shall be better would be for you to be eliminating the word “better” from your language! HA HA HA! For....
JOE: What do I replace it with, Elias? Effortless?
ELIAS: You shall replace it with nothing! For you already are!
Better implies future. Better implies anticipation of elements that are to come, and there are no elements that are to come! There is merely the now, and therefore, the importance of acceptance in the now.
And THIS is the process and the method that you are all offering to yourselves now, the opportunity to view in each moment all of the influences of these beliefs, and in that opportunity, you may allow yourself to acknowledge, “It matters not that I am aligning with this belief system. This belief system is an aspect of my reality. It holds no significance. I need not be creating a judgment, good or bad, better or worse, upon my choices that I create in relation to this belief system. I have created a choice. It is acceptable. I am acceptable. It matters not.”
JOE: Well, before I got to thinking about this and before I started noticing – and there’s been other examples besides this one – but this one I just ... you know, I thought I understood duplicity, but I really did not understand duplicity, and in examples like this and conversations like this with you, I believe that I am really starting to understand what duplicity means, and the impact and the force that duplicity has in the way we believe and in what we create around those beliefs.
ELIAS: Quite! I am expressing to you not figuratively but quite literally and in intensity, these belief systems that you hold within this reality physically are very strong!
They are immensely powerful, and this particular belief system of duplicity is not merely powerful, and not merely is it expressed within itself, but as I have offered many times in information, it – in a manner of speaking – attaches itself to every other belief system and intertwines itself in EVERY expression of your physical reality.
You create an assessment upon every movement, every moment, every choice that you engage within your physical reality in relation to duplicity. You either assess that your action is good or it is bad. It is acceptable or it is unacceptable. It is better or it is worse.
This is the tremendous camouflage of duplicity, and it is intensely strong.
JOE: Well not only that, but it seems to me like it creates a tunnel, and those belief systems of right and wrong are the walls of the tunnel, and we just kind of walk down this tunnel, and we create our realities within this little macrocosm that is based around our ideas of what is good and bad.
JOE: It would also seem to me that this causes a lot of conflict, when one tunnel intersects another tunnel and there’s friction between the two, which causes wars and everything else, on a larger scale.
ELIAS: Quite! You are correct in this also, and another camouflage of duplicity is that it defines itself in very different manners.
What is right and wrong in the perception of one individual may not be defined in the same manner with another individual. It is HIGHLY individualized in relation to EACH perception. Therefore, there are many of your tunnels, so to speak, that intersect with each other, but their definition of this same belief system and its terminology may be quite different.
JOE: Not only that, but at times it seems, in light of the way we’ve been talking about things, so totally ludicrous that one should think they’re right and the other one should think they’re right, and that it should cause friction to begin with.
ELIAS: Quite. This is another aspect of the belief system of duplicity, the belief in absolutes; that your direction, your definitions, your thoughts, your assessments are absolute in their expression – they are absolute right, they are absolute wrong – that as you create a choice and you assess that it is right, if another individual creates a different choice, you shall absolutely assess that their choice is wrong.
JOE: And that’s a judgment.
ELIAS: Quite! The judgment is also placed in the expression of the right. It is not merely the expression of the wrong. Either expression is a judgment.
JOE: Well, I think I can start to see duplicity. I think I can start to see that in a movement towards effortlessness in reality creation, there has to be a movement towards non-judgment and a movement towards trust in self, which starts to come about with this recognition of the belief systems.
ELIAS: You are correct, yes, and this is the process, and....
JOE: This is the movement, then, towards which this wave in consciousness is directed?
ELIAS: Yes, and in this, you present yourselves with scenarios, as you have in your example this day, that you may allow yourselves to view the influence and that you may move yourselves in this process of which you have just expressed.
JOE: You mean to lose myself in confusion sometimes?
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha!
JOE: I’m pretty good at that! (Laughing)
ELIAS: Ha ha ha ha ha! And you may also recognize the judgment that you place upon that! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
JOE: You’re absolutely right! I do!
ELIAS: I express to you my friend, you are presenting yourself with wondrous examples, many, many aspects of this belief system and many opportunities to be creating more choices concerning your movement in relation to duplicity. How very exciting! Ha ha ha ha ha ha!
JOE: Yes, as a matter of fact it is, and enlightening also.
ELIAS: Quite, (chuckling) and all of this offers you freedom, and this is the wondrous element of this shift!
JOE: Well, I can see the movement now, and I can also start to understand duplicity. So, it’s a time thing, but eventually I’ll get there.
ELIAS: (Chuckling) And I shall continue to be encouraging with you.
JOE: Thank you.
ELIAS: You are very welcome, my friend.
JOE: I had one more question, but I think what I’ll do, because of time constraints with Mary, I’ll let that go till our next session.
ELIAS: Very well.
JOE: And I want to thank you, as always, for the information you’ve given me today.
ELIAS: And I express to you my friend, you are very welcome, as always, and we shall continue our sojourn together in our investigation of this reality.
JOE: Very good.
ELIAS: To you in tremendous affection, my friend, au revoir.
JOE: Take care, Elias.
Elias departs at 11:18 AM.
(1) For readability, I have removed the word “that” in the following phrase: “In the same manner, your choice...” Originally it was, “In the same manner that your choice...”
