Prayer: We all have had the thought in our mind and our consciousness to come here tonight and we followed that thought, that projection out to come here. We bring ourselves and position ourselves for that to happen. We carve out within ourselves a space of acceptance, of openness, of peace and we at this time would like to invite spirit to come and join us in this space. Thank you Divine Parents for this gift of grace, this love we feel when we open up ourselves to your divine grace and peace. Thank you for your emissaries of light who so tirelessly work on our behalf and are always there for us when we call. So it is we come to you now to call out in spirit, to reach towards you with that part of us which is spirit and meet you in the place of spirit even now, in this hour, in this moment. Let it be so, thank you.
Charles: Greetings to you all, it is my pleasure to join you tonight, I am Charles. I join you in this place that you have constructed, this cathedral of spirit where we both may come and co-mingle in this space. Make no mistake that this temple that you provide for spirit is of your own construction, that you have by your own efforts created this temple where we meet even now and where you host a variety of spiritual associates.
It is said on your world that your body is a temple, that within the confines of your construct you house elements of divinity and this is true and in a certain interpretation, your vehicle, your body, then is the temple for your spirit component, your part of yourself which is divine, your component of self which is eternal. And so it is that your vehicle can be considered to be the dwelling place where these things come and combine. But I tell you that the real temple that you have begun construction on in this first life experience is an eternal temple of spirit. It will not be reliant upon your physical vehicle whatsoever which will pass with time and in space. Rather, this temple that you work on constructing will be with you throughout eternity. This will be the sacred place that you offer the temple which you provide, the sacred space. And so what you begin here in these mortal times of your experience you continue on throughout your eternal career, providing more and more space, more and more of an elaborate area for you to engage in spirit, be spirit, enjoy spirit and exchange in the spirit realm.
So that being the case, it is everlastingly joyous to witness the foundation that you build at this time in your career when you are so very illiterate of your true standing in your eternal aspect, still you work on construction of a place for you to go to meet spirit. Even when it can be said that you are farthest away from it, still you envision it, still it calls you. It beckons you to put the effort in to build the space, to create the environment. And all this effort which you begin now, these foundations which are so hand hewn and of your experience are so foundational and basic to who you are. These foundations are hewn by virtue of your efforts, your experiences. That's why they are so honored and treasured a possession for you to build upon. They are the results of your having earned them, having fashioned each part of your foundation to fit together. Indeed these foundations that you build are sacred throughout all the universes. They are comprised of your elements of being and are completely unique in all time and space.
Thank you for allowing me to express my sentiments about what it is to observe you in the very act of cementing together your foundation and building these places where you will entertain your spiritual aspect. I understand that there are questions on the floor and I will certainly endeavor to shine a little more light, perhaps from another angle of perception. One question refers to what it is to be mindful or have mindfulness in the process. To this I would say that to be mindful as a mortal of the realm, is to choose among the myriad of options which you could entertain with your valuable computer you call your mind.
It is up to you, the user, perhaps even the observer, to pick and choose among the many many options before you to let play, much as the program and the computer may be turned on or off, the function. When it is turned on it will routinely play through its standard processes, over and over again, faithfully repeating its cycle. Likewise, your mind has become programmed and there are programs in place within your mind which, if activated, will proceed apace and will repeat themselves faithfully over and over again. What has been inserted into the computer, now plays back to you.
Being mindful refers to the awareness of this underlying process and the overriding of any random triggering of programs in favor of selective choosing of patterns you wish to play. Rather than letting your mind choose where it goes and the direction in which it runs off, the tangent in which it proceeds down, mindfulness refers to the state of awareness of how the mind functions in this way and the overriding of random signals in favor of a chosen pattern. Mindfulness is using the computer for an intended purpose, seizing control, becoming the driver, not simply the observer.
Mindfulness refers to all these components taking charge, controlling the direction of the energy and the flow, inserting into the equation the pattern you wish to play and replay. Mindfulness is using the mind rather than letting the mind use you. Who is in charge? Is it the thoughts that you think or are you behind the curtain somewhere in charge of the thoughts that you think? I invite you all to consider that you are not your mind. Your mind is a circuit established for your benefit. You are attached to the circuit, you have a powerful computer onboard which helps you access the circuit. That is your mind, and it craves activity. If you don't give it activity, it will find its own and run its own program.
You have been counseled in your process that stillness is a desirable state of being. This refers to mindfulness of the activity of the mind and how to guide it, slow it, pause it or override it. So that says you are not the mind, you are the observer behind the mind, you are the ones in charge of the application of mind, the ones at the control panel. This is good for you all to consider, this state of mindfulness and who is in charge, the random thoughts generated and the patterns explored by the mind or your overall intention projected onto the mind and in control of the mind. There perhaps are some new dimensions to consider about mindfulness.
I would address another question and for the record, that question being, what can be done to be prepared for any upcoming events in time and space? The answer to this one is remarkably simple. The very same thing that you would do to ready yourselves for spiritual ascension are the very same things needed by all manner of heavenly hosts who may guide you through certain aspects of your ascension career and the ascension career of your planet and your world. You see, you are most valuable when you have worked on yourself and become the best player a team could ever desire.
The good players are the ones who make sure that their part, their piece of the puzzle, is ready, that they are as in shape and in tune as they can be. You see, this no else can do. This only you can offer. Have you built your temple of spirit with plenty of space to accommodate your spiritual dimension? Have you provided the groundwork necessary, built the foundation? Are you working on your own spiritual relationship to the whole? Because this is what is needed, this is what only you can do. So when you ask, what can be done to facilitate, to help, to be useful in whatever upcoming process may be before you, I say go work on yourself, make sure you are ready. Make sure your piece of the puzzle is secure, is sound, is whole, is strong.
That is what you can do so that when the time is right, when the energy is flowing, you will be strong and able to work it, to be part of it. This will remain the universally most significant thing that you as an individual are capable of offering, not only to yourself but to the whole. You see all these pieces of the puzzle are necessary, all parts of the whole must be brought together and in this process, it is very helpful if these pieces of the whole are active and engaged and trying to become that part of the whole.
So, surprisingly enough, as you help yourself you help your Divine Parents, you help the overall eternal plan, you help the First Source and Center, you help the entire project move forward and I know it may not seem that working on your piece may be that significant at times, after all, you are but one and separate in the process. But I tell you, it won't be long in your ascension career before you realize the folly of that idea. You are anything but alone, you are anything but fragmented. You are part of the whole, it is only your experience to feel fragmented and separate. This is by design so that you can feel what it is to be the self, the individual.
This is what your Indwelling Spirit craves about you, this experience of isolation, fragmentation and separation. It is only had through this remote material mortal experience. Otherwise, all of your other spirit incarnations will preclude you from feeling so isolated but in this one it is possible for you to sense a distinction as if you are all alone. So even this is a sacred experience, one for you to have and hold and treasure throughout as you realize in each of your future incarnations, how much a part of the whole you really are.
I hope this has given you thoughts for consideration. Overall, I wish you all a sense of peace, a sense of well being. You are all undergoing these efforts of constructing this place within and that is all that is significant. You have chosen a direction to grow in spirit and now it is just for your paths to unfold, for your destinies to be manifested. I join with you all in prayer that these journeys be full and rich and joyous and contain a vast array of experience to delight us. I sense that the dialog has gone on for a while and the transcribing can loom large. So, I would make a motion to conclude tonights meeting unless there would be any interjection from the other participants.
Question: Are feelings ever wrong?
Charles: Thank you for your question. That question is difficult of a short answer. The feelings that an individual has are indeed valid feelings to that individual. I think what you might be asking is: Just because there are valid feelings, are they true or good or right or wrong? That implies an assessment, a judgement, a point of reference, a vantage point of view and there are no two individuals which can possibly view the same phenomenon from the exact same vantage point. Therefore, there are no absolute ground zero truths about what is right, wrong, good or bad and to what degree.
I will say that one of your greatest mortal gifts are your feelings. They are the reaction of your being manifesting through your emotional capacities. They are the true indicator of your position and your relationship to the issue under consideration. I invite you all to consider that when you take into consideration any particular issue, there immediately wells up in you a feeling. This feeling is your relationship to this issue, your position in relationship to this issue. If it makes you uncomfortable or feel bad, then I would to the best of my degree, follow these intuitions, these feelings. They are your mortal and material reflection of your emotional connection to the issue at hand and they are without deliberation. They are instantaneous. That's how you know that they come directly from your innermost being, your feeling towards things are immediately portrayed by your emotional context.
This then transfers to your physical state, the pit in your stomach, the tension that you may feel grip you, the sense of peace which may overcome you, the sense of joy and love when in consideration of a loved one. These senses are instantaneous and undeniable. They are your barometer of whether something is good for you or perhaps not so much. Does this make them right or wrong? They are as signposts, indicators, turn signals which may pop on for you without your consideration, just arrive. This lets you know that they are straight from the heart, that they are not filtered by components of the mind but rather emanate directly from your inner being and trigger a response, a literal physical response, a sensation which washes over you.
This is a gift of mortal life, this is one of the components of who you are. You have this emotional tie to this material component of self. So I would avail myself of this sense and to the degree that is possible, I would want to follow the direction this sense would lead me into, towards those things which brought me peace, contentment, love, joy. All of those go with your heart and you can seldom do wrong. Is it a strict right or wrong? The choice is yours and any choice you make could be used to the good. [Thank you so very much] Thank you for your question.
Very well then, I think there will be quite a bit to type up tonight. So, if there are no further contributions or questions, then I would make a motion to call this meeting to a conclusion. Thank you all for joining tonight.
