This is a very well written article by David Wilcock a person who has done the meditative work and scientific research to be able to come up with a very detailed account to what is actually going on in this reality.
THE BASIC BOTTOM LINE
We always start by reminding ourselves that there’s only one of us here. The ‘separation’ never actually happened. The entire manifest Universe, including space, time and all dimensions, is an illusion — a dream in the mind of an Ultimate Being.
It was already over long ago, we already all won the game, and we are already all Home now. We are in a dream of space and time, and within this dream there is structure, including a finite series of experiences that we will run through at whatever speed we choose. Until we complete this curriculum we remain in the “illusion”.
The essence of this Ultimate Being is Love. We are also told that Free Will, or the “First Distortion of the Law of One”, is the most essential concept to grasp in terms of how to treat others with Love within the ‘illusion’ of space and time.
You cannot escape the fact that your essence is Love, and that your purpose here is to awaken to your true identity as the One Infinite Creator.
You also cannot escape the fact that as Love, you set up a system of guidelines where whatever you measure out to others will be measured back to you.
Hence, treat others with love and compassion and more of these wonderful qualities will flow into your own life naturally. Treat others with manipulation and control and you, in turn, will be manipulated and controlled by others.
Sadly, on this planet at this time, there are many, many people who do not grasp that we live in a highly structured reality, in which there is a “Glass Ceiling.”
Everything you say, everything you do, everything you think is known.
Not just by you, but by everyone above our own ‘third-density’ level.
You may be able to manipulate this reality and lie to someone here on the ground, or deceive and manipulate them in some way that appears to have worked. However, in truth you are utterly, 100-percent accountable for everything you do.
There really is no privacy — not in the sense of the higher forces who surround us and are constantly peering into our reality through the “Glass Ceiling.”
This insults the ego of people who haven’t accepted Oneness to some degree, and have indulged in a false sense of privacy most of their lives. Nonetheless, this is exactly how it works in the deeper ‘Real World’ we’re all participating in, with varying levels of awareness.
MISSING OUT ON THE BIGGEST PUZZLE PIECE OF ALL
Many people are awakening to the realities within conspiracy theories at this time, and find it astonishing that the mainstream media has been lying to them for so long about so many things.
Nonetheless, they typically still fail to realize that even the full scope of ‘Truth’ about government / corporate / secret society shenanigans is nothing by comparison to the much greater hidden reality that underlies our existence.
The fact is that we are not alone. Our world is not what it seems to be at all. It is a massive school, intending to teach us to make a solid choice between love or control.
Our thoughts and actions do not occur in a void. Everything we think and everything we do pushes us in a direction — either closer to Oneness or farther away from it.
Whenever we veer from our course of Oneness, we will continually be prodded back on the path.
Think about this the next time you are tempted to lie, cheat, steal, hurt, manipulate or control someone. You may be able to do these things and “Get Away With It”, but your Higher Self is taking it all in and programming future events to balance you out the very moment you perform these ‘infringements.’
Every time you judge someone, hate them, criticize them or attack them, you have just demonstrated that you do not understand the truth of Oneness and of Love. And you are accountable for the thoughts you create. They will come back around.
It’s a shame that more of my readers do not grasp this simple concept, given the level of vitriol I see in the anti-Obama flame letters. If you hate or attack anyone, for any reason, then you haven’t grasped the most basic aspect of spiritual truth there is.
I’m not affected by it — I already have forgiven you for whatever you write and know it’s not about me anyway — but these actions very much do affect you. It’s a point worth meditating about.
You will always have a place in my heart where you are seen as precious beyond measure, regardless of how you approach me. By that same token, I withdraw from confrontations, refusing to engage, and do the forgiveness / acceptance work on a higher level, apart from any direct physical communication.
THE LAW OF GRACE
According to the Cayce Readings, a “Law of Grace” is being applied here on Earth where we are not held responsible for more ‘karma’ than we can hope to make use out of and understand at any given time.
There are so many thousands of ways in which we inadvertently infringe upon the free will of others — say by buying ultra-cheap ‘sweat-shop’ products essentially built by the modern Asian equivalent of slaves — that if we were fully accountable for every infringement, we would all be suffering miserably and no one would learn anything.
Therefore, the Law of Grace is a sliding scale where you do not experience any greater ‘karma’ than you can be expected to learn from.
The problem here is that once you become fully educated as to the realities you live in, and the metaphysical truths that the Universe is formed from, the Law of Grace increasingly falls away, and you become totally accountable.
In this world, with how many people are ‘asleep’ and how easily they can hurt you, that is a very, very difficult place to be.
I have been living this way for many, many years now, having begun advanced spiritual studies into hypnosis and ESP at age 7, and gaining the complete Law of One philosophical perspective in 1996. Hence I am far more accountable, for far smaller things, than most other people would be.
The stakes rise even higher when you are out there giving spiritual teachings to groups of people who have found your work. If any of your actions do not align with your teachings, the karmic feedback is swift, intense and relentless.
Again, the key is not to get angry or frustrated, but to see it as a blessing. Each experience is a gift that can lead to your full awakening if pursued to its greatest extent.
INITIATION: ‘CATALYST’ IN SPIRIT, MIND AND BODY
Initiation is probably the least-understood aspect of spiritual truth and philosophy for most people who are in the process of awakening… and initiation comes through ‘catalyst,’ either of spirit, mind or body.
The Law of One series defines ‘catalyst’ as anything that promotes our spiritual evolution back into Oneness. In many cases these are jarring events, as this is what we need to wake up.
We like to think of spiritual growth as this happy, loving, wonderful process. We feel we’ve been suffering and we want to end that suffering. We may initially be attracted into spirituality as almost another form of addiction — just have a drink and your problems melt away.
It doesn’t work that way at all. You can read books, listen to radio shows, watch documentaries and ‘spread the word’ about what you see to be the truth all day long — but if you neglect the love that is present in this moment, and do not adequately share it with yourself and others, you will be shaken.
SPIRITUAL GROWTH: THE HARDEST… AND THE MOST REWARDING
Even in high school, I was telling people that “Spiritual growth is the hardest thing you will ever do in your life. It is also the most rewarding.”
Back in the 80s, a pot-smoking friend of mine stole a fairly expensive item from someone, and almost immediately wrecked his car. He did not ‘gain’ anything — his loss from the car wreck was greater than what he ‘gained’ from stealing someone else’s property.
To me this was so obvious I was astonished when he refused to see a correlation between the events.
I watched more and more people suffering the effects of ‘karma’ and not even daring to imagine that these events were in any way related to things they had already said, done or even just thought. Nonetheless, the more you awaken to this reality, the more obvious it becomes when it happens to everyone else.
Again, the Law of One term for ‘karma’ is catalyst — and it comes in a sequential process. It starts in the spirit, and if that doesn’t work it spills over into the mind. If that doesn’t work it spills over into the body.
The reason why I’m writing all this is I just went through some very intense ‘body catalyst’ and am sharing the fruits of what I learned.
The first level of catalyst is spiritual. The questioner in the Law of One series never examined this very much, but it is clear that a great deal of spiritual catalyst occurs in the form of dream initiations.
Let’s say you have a major problem that has occurred in the past. It could be anything — think of any major problem you’ve been through, or that may be causing you distress even recently.
Though you cannot see it while stuck in linear time, there is a potential that this problem could happen again. Your Higher Self may see that you could be ready to let go of this problem for good.
You will then experience the same problem in a dream. If you successfully deal with it in the dream, i.e. in the ‘spirit,’ then you have signaled to your Higher Self that the problem need not repeat in your physical life. You have now learned the lesson, and you’re free to move to the next level.
EXAMPLE: FORGIVING AN ABUSIVE PARENT WITHIN THE ‘SPIRIT’
As one example, say the problem is that you have not fully forgiven and accepted an abusive parent. You may have a dream where a monstrous character, with exaggerated qualities like those of your parent, is chasing you.
If you have done the work and have forgiven your parent, you may realize the monster in your dream has no power over you. There is no reason to fear as you turn and face the very thing that seems to have been so terrifying and impossible to deal with in the past.
This is a profound healing, as in its fullest form you see the monster as a part of yourself that is in a lot of pain and really doesn’t want to hurt anyone.
You then embrace and forgive this character, which often by now is nothing more than a child, and there is a burst of white light, often ending in you waking up in tears. Congratulations — you’ve just had the ultimate example of processing catalyst in the spirit.
However, if you go through the dream and you keep on running away from the problem, then it’s time for your catalyst to spill over into the mind.
Remember: “In Forgiveness Lies the Stoppage of the Wheel of Karma.”
Everything flows from forgiveness. It is the central ingredient that can end all suffering in the manifest world.
The point at which your progress stops can be measured as the point at which your forgiveness stops.
CATALYST OF THE MIND
Catalyst unprocessed by the spirit — i.e. through dreams we have that can be challenging, like running from an attacker and remaining terrified as it repeats over and over again — spill over into the mind. We then become consciously aware there is a problem, and it plagues our mind.
Going back to our example, as just one of many different possibilities, at this point we now attract someone into our lives who is the physical embodiment of the monster chasing us in the dream that we kept running from.
The person we now attract into our lives will have qualities that are quite similar to the abusive parent who first traumatized us. Now we have an opportunity to forgive this person, this projection of our original abuser, and learn to respect ourselves enough not to participate with people who treat us this way.
If we do not deal with catalyst in the mind — i.e. if we are unable to forgive this person in our lives who is offering us the same judgment, unfair treatment, condemnation, scorn and ridicule that we felt as a child, and ultimately direct against ourselves — then this catalyst spills over into the body.
This is where initiation can truly become dangerous, from a physical perspective. Nonetheless, on a higher level we take on and accept this danger because of how important it is that we awaken, or at the very least remain within a state of spiritual balance.
CATALYST OF THE BODY
‘Physical Catalyst’ involves physical damage — either to the body itself, through internal illness or external injury, or to personal property — everything from accidentally dropping that glass or plate you liked all the way up to totaling a car or having your house burn down.
The intended effect of this ‘catalyst’ is the same as spiritual or mental catalyst. It is intended to give you insight, to wake you up, to jar you out of toxic emotions and back into love and forgiveness.
The difference here is that you’re now seeing destructive force unleashed upon your own body or upon the physical things that your body identifies with.
Unfortunately, we have been widely conditioned in movies and the like to not think of body catalyst as karmic in nature. ‘Bad Things’ just happen to people without there being any reason.
We recoil in horror when “Bad Things” happen to children, not realizing that in many cases future incarnations are required to balance karma out that we created in a prior life time.
And let us be clear that we do have a Higher Self, it does have a very real spiritual agenda for us, and if we stray far enough off the path of what we came here to do in this life, it is perfectly willing to end an incarnation and pull us out, hoping to recalibrate our next lifetime so as to generate faster learning and better results.
If you are already dealing with body catalyst, there is absolutely no reason to judge yourself as having done anything wrong. There is no ‘wrong’ — there is only love and free will, and when you infringe on free will, you will have experiences that can restore you to perfect balance.
Those experiences, in order to be properly processed and utilized, involve forgiving and accepting yourself and others. That’s what everything keeps coming down to. Even in college, long before I’d pieced it all together, I was telling my friend Angelica “Self-acceptance is the bulls-eye” we’re all shooting for on the spiritual path.
Your Higher Self never sees you in any other form than with unimaginable love. Catalyst is precisely measured and never exceeds the exact amount deemed to be useful to nudge you back into love, acceptance and forgiveness. And the more love you create, the more comes back to you… by equally mystical and miraculous processes.
Beings in higher dimensions are not detached and emotionless at all. In fact, they understand us far more than we could ever believe, and have exquisitely intricate sensitivity to every little nuance of the spiritual path that comes our way.
You cannot imagine a being more understanding, more compassionate, and more insightful, as they almost never occur on Earth due to the personality distortions we all face here. Nonetheless, it is to that same level of acceptance and understanding that we are all being pushed.
And with that said, let’s explore my own physical catalyst that I just passed through, as it was quite intense.
MY THREE-WEEK ORDEAL
I have been through quite the initiation these last three weeks. It started when I received what I felt to be a very judgmental, attacking letter over a long-standing personal issue with someone I know. I felt the letter showed an extreme lack of respect, and came across as a great betrayal.
My personality was insulted enough by this letter that I yelled in my room, and ended up damaging my throat and vocal cords, particularly on the left. I did not put this into writing, as I am very composed and do not throw my anger at others if I feel it at all — but in my own private space I certainly vented the emotions.
I really have done a great job of clearing emotional charges like this out of my life, and that’s why this one was such a surprise. I didn’t even know it was there and was surprised at the intensity that came up for me. I was not feeling the love or the forgiveness — I was shocked at what this person I trusted was showing me.
The wound in my throat became an attack vector for germs to get in, while in the meantime I was working myself much too hard and never slowing down.
THE CONSCIOUS LIFE EXPO
By the time the Conscious Life Expo came around I was extremely ill and fatigued.
I barely held it together on the panels, but experienced a marvelous surge of energy for my own events — the higher spiritual forces lifting me out of whatever my body was feeling into a state of grace. This is a common phenomenon — I can perform very well even under exceptional stress.
I did write about the problems and successes of the event in my previous entry, but left out the part about how I was practically a walking corpse while all this was going on, physically speaking. No one knew, but I had to avoid the crowds more than usual in order to avoid losing even more of my own vital energy and getting even sicker.
MORE WORK FRENZY
I left the Expo and came home, only to continue trying to do everything at once, and handling whatever I can of an email load that has now surged to 200+ per day on peak days, with signs of it continuing to rise. As a responsible person I have been left with no choice but to spiritually wish my writers well, encourage them in articles like this to participate in the discussion forum, and send them good thoughts as I read their words.
I cannot answer individually in the majority of cases, and the ones I do answer are not selected as being ‘better’ or more deserving than others — it is more of a random process, totally a creature of the moment in which they come in, and whether or not I can reply in a few short sentences.
I felt like my whole life was on a treadmill and I never had time to stop or slow down. Even cleaving off most of my email load, I was trying to do way too much at once, and I didn’t have the health to be able to do anything but lie in bed. I was happy within my work, but outside of my work I really didn’t have a life.
THE UFO CONGRESS
Then the UFO Congress came around and I was sicker than ever. Any sane person would have canceled, but I had a clear dream before the Conscious Life Expo comparing me to a soldier. This was my duty. My honor. March into battle, hold the sword of Truth aloft, and serve to the best of my ability, regardless of the cost.
I was drinking a super-green powder for nutrition, and synergizing it with another powder that was almost like a meal in and of itself. That powder expands into a thick goo when you hydrate it in an 8-oz glass of water.
Ultimately, what happened was that as I started using this powder, particles of it were getting trapped in the pockets of my already-enflamed tonsil as I swallowed it. They were then staying in those pockets, fairly dry, and accumulating. What nearly killed me, and drove me to the emergency room, was these particles rehydrating inside the tonsil but not releasing.
I was in really bad shape when I gave my talk at the UFO Congress, but no one knew. By all accounts I did a fantastic job. I tried to stick around for the awards ceremony but I had to apply constant pressure to my throat to stop it from aching.
That night I could only sleep for an hour and a half at a time before I would wake up in devstating, burning pain unlike anything I’ve ever felt in my throat before. It was nearly impossible to speak, eat or drink without excruciating pain. The whole left side of my throat was blocked off.
THE FINAL DRIVE HOME
I had to drive myself home from the UFO Congress, since I had taken my rental car out there while my regular car was in the shop. I considered it a short drive and didn’t want to risk going on a plane and having the severe ear pain that can result when you are sick. I had no idea how much sicker I would be when I had to drive myself home.
During that final seven-hour period, I could not make intelligible speech — I sounded as if I had damage to my normal tongue muscular function and / or the structure of my palate. I had to expectorate into a cup every 15 seconds because I could not swallow, and my salivary glands were running full tilt.
Superficially I knew I had been hit by a bad case of “sick building syndrome” from the new carpet fumes in the room I was staying in at the conference — something that has struck me very hard on several occasions in the past — but this condition had already been building up for some time by then; the room was just the final catalyst.
No one knew I was so sick at either the Conscious Life Expo or the International UFO Congress, and I still managed to do a great job in this condition. I didn’t write about it on this site either, because I wanted the focus to be on the message, not the messenger. Now that I understand what was going on I have clearly been asked to talk about it.
Once I got home from my seven-hour driving ordeal, I breathed hot steam out of a pan, and then took a very hot bath with mineral salts. I coughed and hacked the entire time. I then got out, and while sitting on the toilet a thought went through my mind about the person who had written me three weeks earlier and gotten me so upset.
In that moment, it was simple… I just said “They can think whatever they want. It’s fine. It’s not who I am and I don’t need to have everyone agree with me.”
Suddenly I started gagging — and for the next three hours I hacked up over three tablespoons worth of brown material from my tonsil as all those particles of ‘superfood’ powder suddenly re-hydrated, forming a goo that was much greater than the space they had been taking up inside the tonsil.
It was literally like vomiting, and I’ve never experienced anything like this before, nor do I ever intend to again. It was a massive emotional purging.
At the end of the whole thing I had gotten much, much better, and by the next morning it was almost back to normal. Today, just a day after that, all that’s left is the slightest tickle, and some rips in the skin that I have to be careful not to stretch by opening my mouth too much.
PHYSICAL CATALYST FOR WHAT?
I realized that the whole issue was about forgiveness. It was a poignant teaching and I did get the message. It will undoubtedly change how I do what I do, and the wording of this article is just the beginning of it.
