The Living Force
I think a few things Laura mentioned already in this thread may answer that one:Mrs. Tigersoap said:Won't this anticipation restrict the channel, so to speak? How can we be open, i.e. in a non-anticipating way, when we know what/who we are trying to channel?
I'm not sure it makes sense to say that we're "trying" to channel any one thing in particular. It doesn't look like we have enough control of the process to "try" any one thing or another - all we can do is pick up the phone and see what happens. And based on the above I'd say that if we anticipate anything, it should be lies and nonsense.Laura said:So, part of the experimental protocol is to understand at the outset that most of what you are going to get via the board is just that: more layers of lies and BS with a little nugget of truth now and again.
Plus, there's this:
Given the above, we shouldn't really be trying to "channel" or "contact" anything or anyone. And we have no way of knowing exactly what we'll get once we pick up that phone, but if it will be anything, we should already understand that it WILL be a variety of nonsense. Not useless nonsense though, since it's nonsense that's a reflection of ourselves and it looks like it will be very helpful in our understanding of ourselves and as a result self development. So just cuz we get only lies doesn't mean it's a bad thing or that we're "wasting time" etc, since it's our own lies. Perhaps if our intent is just to probe (and by doing that, clean) our subconscious minds, then that would eliminate anticipation as we have no way to know what the heck we'll find.Laura said:1) The object is NOT to "channel" other entities. The object is to use the method as a self-development tool so that, if possible, one can communicate directly with one's OWN higher mind. That's a long, drawn out process. It won't happen in a week-end, probably not even in a year of regular sitting. In the meantime, one will learn a lot about the self, run through many thought loops, deal with all kinds of detached and attached entities, etc. It is a purification process. You must assume that, for a long time, the ONLY thing you will get is nonsense, lies, gibberish, cling-ons, parasites, etc. That's natural. They are there anyway, you just don't know about them. Part of the process is to cleanse yourself and your environment of such and that is a technique that can be easily learned if you are attentive and work on your BS meter. Remember, nearly everything you communicate with for a LOOOONG time will do nothing but lie. That's the truth.
Hmm kinda like vacuuming your room. Occasionally you'll find a quarter or something, but mostly it's just dust bunnies. Maybe if you vacuum it enough it will be clean and the ratio of "gold nuggets" to garbage will be higher, but you still don't know what you'll find and when.
