An on-going conversation with cooperative networks of conscious particles through the focal point of Heartstone.
Gary R Smith Heartstone,
After our session yesterday, I walked from the gazebo up the hill to the yurt. The morning heat was already feeling oppressive, and I recognized my body was dragging. Still, it seemed to me that our 'work' normally 'should' leave me feeling more uplifted, more radiant. Can you tell me why the difference?
H. - As you surmised (as we can read you, as we are one,) it 'seeming to you that it should' is already an expectation. Our talks become what is called abstract by some. To us, it is not abstract. But to one whose awareness is bound by mental conditioning, phrases such as 'there is no existence without an observer' can seem far removed from daily life.
You find yourself often in a middle plane, between your human experience and what you intuitively know is the greater existence. You can entertain yourself endlessly in your mental world by following philosophical concepts. Your persona likes to think it is bringing out something of value. It becomes a mental game. These do not bring you an experience of being, which comes with uplift and radiance.
You already know how to bring it to balance by returning your attention to your breath and focusing on the four pillars of Heart Breathing:
I am of the present moment. I feel the heart space. I act from loving kindness. I trust the grand design.
G. - Yes, but.
I know these things, yet my body feels weighed down by the so-called outer setting and so far, though improvement is seen, I have not gained mastery to feel so full of Being that my physical nature is not influenced by my surroundings. You have it easy, being a rock.
H. - We are aware of the challenges faced by humans.
G. - Can you tell me how humanity came to the state it is in?
H. - We could. But it is not beneficial to put any attention on the history of humanity at this time. Especially avoid stories of malicious intents or character weaknesses. Those only support a contracted state. You need to be open enough to continue these conversations.
G. - Honestly, I cannot say if these conversations will continue unless more evidence of their uplifting nature is seen in my daily life.
H. - Keep breathing through your challenges, keep returning to the four pillars, give yourself some time to dissolve old patterns, and you will see change. And you are right, you cannot say. In a state of Being, which is of the present moment, there are no predictions. 'You will see change' is a high probability, and comes with an energy of no attachment.
G. - You mentioned that it 'seeming to you that it should' is already an expectation. Are all expectations to be avoided?
H. - Only those which bring contraction of your body/mind. Being aware that expectations often lead to contraction helps you be more aware of contraction as it occurs, when it is easiest to dissolve.
G. - In our previous session, you gave examples of what leads to contraction. Can you give more?
H. - There are many. Consider that judgment and guilt are also generally an outcome of having expectations, and you may realize why being aware of expectations is key. Be receptive, and what you need to know about what leads to contraction will come to your mind as it is needed. Return to the pillar of trust.
G. - In other words, don't make this a mental exercise.
H. - You got it.
G. - Am I channeling you, Heartstone?
H. - If by channeling you mean are you taking notes dictated to you by an entity conceived as either outside yourself or within your psyche, you are not channeling. You are having a conversation with consciousness which is greater than your psyche and is your greater self. What you are doing is rare, and has value for your unfolding as a whole human. You are aware that it is not infallible and is a mix with your persona. We are aware you also like the idea that having a relationship with a stone as a focal point for connection with the Whole Net is something that others can do as well. Your heart is to bring a gift to humanity.
G. - Yes, my heart is to bring a gift to humanity. Without expectation!
