Take Another Look. Is It Really True?

Energy is our natural native state of being. Did you know that - I feel many of you do. It is not natural for us to be in these bodies in which we occupy which automatically tells us that we are here to learn something.

We are here, I feel, to learn compassion for all beings who are physical. Each other yes of course but also animals, plants and all manner of creatures - large or minute on this planet. Compassion as I've said before is a great lesson for us all. It is something that we take for granted in our natural state of being when we are not on this planet and it is something that is a portion of life that is also taken for granted almost everyplace else.

Why then, you might reasonably ask, are we so challenged in our day to day life here. Why is it such a struggle? Are we being punished? No, I know that's not it.

We are learning. We are learning what is added, what is subtracted and what is blended in order to make the best result.

One of the ways this is learned is to make mistakes. Mistakes are often regretted by us or others aren't they - and yet it is a way to learn. Lets pay attention to history. Lets not simply turn a blind eye to it because we don't like it or we don't like the outcome that we are living with. Lets not assume that if some peoples have made mistakes against our kind, as we might say, or others like us that they are inherently at fault including all succeeding generations.

Lets automatically assume, as we are all human beings while we are here, that that was a human error and as human beings we are most definitely available to make the same error. Prejudice is such a difficult thing isn't it. Sometimes so very seductive - even in ways that we come to believe are not associated with prejudice.

This is sometimes referred to in the word truisms - meaning things that are so much believed to be true that regardless of evidence to the opposite are accepted as true.

Take a look at your life. Are you practicing in your attitudes any truisms. If you are, take another look. Is it really so? Are other people so really different from you?

In my experience we are all so very much alike even though we have had different experiences and our lives have been shaped in different ways. At our root of being, physically of course, we are alike and in this way we can find our way home to each other. Think about it and add what you'd like.

Goodlife to you all and goodnight.

Dear Robert,
Long time...Wow things are moving so fast and it makes us feel sometimes a bit lost.
Through your blog I read quite often the word "learning"...Which refers to the image of a school...
I was thinking so until recently but I start feeling it more like an unfolding or an invention...
Something like the famous story of the Japanese monkeys which used to eat sweet potatoes as they got it. Until one day one of them "imagined" a new way to make the experience more enjoyable. And then all monkeys in the islands around could access the shift through what is called the "Morphic field".
Aren't we exploring through our personal experiences the way to create a paradise even in this 3 dimensional playground.

Patrice, thank you for your comment. It may certainly be true that the once discovered becomes the expanded.

That is what you're really saying isn't it or are you saying we imagine it so it becomes.

I feel it is more to do with the discovery. It's true we can imagine things but they do not always come to pass. When however, we discover things they are often present and ready to be created, recreated or expanded.

Goodlife.

Dear Robert,
I am recently feeling that the 3D world is a state of consciousness. Let say that it's a consensual belief state we (as spirits)create to experience things that would not be as deep if we didn't have the illusion of density.
So the paradox is that we created density out of consciousness but to enjoy it we have to forget this is just a projected "reality"...
The situation I imagine is that we "explore" our own creation, learning through glimpses of remembrance how to overcome the side effects of the necessary amnesia...
Overcoming the fear of death is an example of this paradoxical situation.
Do you see what I mean?
Like and artist exploring his artwork.
Goodlife!

Patrice, thank you for expanding on your views and for clarifying your understanding of the creation process as perceived through thought integration.

Goodlife my friend.
