An on-going conversation with cooperative networks of conscious particles through the focal point of Heartstone.
Gary R Smith Heartstone,
You said, 'You are having a conversation with consciousness which is greater than your psyche and is your greater self.'
How does my greater self relate to the Whole Net of conscious particles?
H. - The Whole Net is your greater self or higher consciousness. Higher is a distinction between your localized self in the physical body and the universal, non-localized consciousness of the cooperative nets. It is the self, the consciousness, of all that is. And it manifests as all that is. So it is the greater self of the stone and of Gary.
G. - Yesterday when we wrote Heartstone 004, I smoked cannabis beforehand. During our session, I was stoned, if you will pardon the pun.
I did not smoke during the writing of 005 and this, and am not stoned now. Or, I am stoned only by our conversation. It feels good. Smoking probably contributed to my feeling so droopy after the session yesterday.
H. -Smoking cannabis helped you get started with the conversations. Your brain needed to relax. As you know, smoking can have its pitfalls as well. You do not need to smoke to communicate with the Greater Self. That does not mean you shouldn't or that it would be detrimental. It will vary. Key is to listen to your body wisdom/intuitive feeling for each session.
G. - This morning as I carried buckets of compost, I was aware of the atoms of the bucket and the molecules of the compost and my surroundings. I felt I was experiencing life as it happens. It was a great feeling while it lasted.
H. - That great feeling will only grow as you make choices for living from Being.
G. - Yes, and that brings me to a question about expectations. Is it not part of the human experience to have expectations? Eliminating all would mean having no likes or dislikes, for example.
H. - Not every expectation is a hindrance to experience living fully from Being or in a felt connection with the Nets. Expectations which lead to contraction hinder the experience and impede the flow.
When you want something and think (expect) it will make you happy, you constrict Being. When you long more to live from Being than from the old patterns of human expectation, you will make choices which serve your deepest heart.
It becomes a question of how deeply you yearn and how far you are willing to go with experiencing the Greater Self while in a human body. The greater the yearning, the more acutely you must be fine-tuned to eliminate contraction of your body/mind and grow the conscious relationship, in order for the yearning to be fulfilled.
G. - What is it like to live in constant awareness of and connection with, the Whole Net, the One Being?
H. - It is the greatest state of bliss. And it is extraordinary that humanity has reached a crossroads which can take it to that blissful state, or to prolonged suffering. Either way will be balanced by the Whole in the end, but for humans there is a choice for a smoother ride.
G. - The way to the blissful state I understand to be communication and conscious relation with the Whole Net, and service to the One Being. Are there, as it has been said, many roads leading to this same destination?
H. - Traditions, techniques, systems, philosophies, all have limitations. We (you and we) have found a way that gives humans direct access to experiential connection with the Whole Net and is without limit.
A form of Heart Breathing was part of my practice this morning. I am trying it out more now, as I notice the need to be more in my heart, allowing for a more wholistic processing of emotion, presence and heart centered beingness.
