(Throughout this meeting, David Oldham and Greg Stratton sat on the podium with Samuel, reading alternately from the questions submitted by the audience. Continuing a joke he began in an earlier meeting, Samuel referred to them singly and together as “Source.” Read the context carefully, and do not assume Samuel is using that word in the usual sense.)

Samuel: Hello, dears.

Hi, Samuel.

S: So Source are missing? Hello, dear.


S: How are you?

I’m wonderful.

S: So what happened in Vegas?

I went shopping, and David was in class.

S: Aye. That’s the way it should be, don’t you think?

We were both happier that way.

S: So you both have questions? Is that [right]?

We do.

S: Looks like you both got lots of paper here.

Well, let me, before we go quite there, ask a question of you. What did you do to make somebody’s day better and brighter?

I was in a book store today, and called Joni at half-priced books, and said, “Joni, what books do you need by these authors?” And so I went and looked and ended up with two books. So I think that made. . . .

S: Made your day better and brighter?


S: Very good. Very good. Aye.

I haven’t seen a good family friend of ours for many years, probably since Mama Jude died. I’ve seen other of our friends, but not this particular one whose husband happened to die. When I got to the point in the line where I finally got to give her a hug, her happiness at seeing me was just delightful. It was really great. It was great love for both of us to be able to share a hug, and just, you know, embrace. It was really sweet.

She was there too.

S: Aye.

I have a friend that Mike works with who, if the human ego was a superpower, he’d have a cape, and so it’s very difficult for Mike to work with this person because he pushes all the buttons in all the right places to make it difficult.

S: I think that would be all the wrong places.

So I tried to help Mike today by reframing a lot of his experiences with this person, to try to help him see that sometimes the service that we provide at our jobs has nothing to do with the jobs at all, but might in fact be those people who are right in our way.

S: Did that make your life better and brighter, or just a bit more willing to understand?

A little bit of both. It’s helped me come to terms with the situation a little easier.

S: Aye. It’s one of those “better and brighter” that will continue for quite some time. That’s good, real good.


I had connected with a friend that I haven’t talked to in ages. And when I first called, I had to leave a message, and then she called me back. And it was someone that I used to get to see regularly, so we had all this catching up over all this time. And I found out she had made trips, and we just shared all this information with each other, and I have missed her. And it was a delightful thing.

S: And that’s one of those that made your day better and brighter in giving that to another. Very nice.

Go ahead, Mary Claire.

Well, I didn’t make someone else’s day better and brighter, but there’s someone who makes my day better and brighter, and that’s Cam, every day.

She just asked me if she makes my day better and brighter, and she does.

S: Now, the front row won’t like it too much if you make me laugh too hard in the middle of a drink. It might, I don’t know, cause your skin to grow something strange.

Remove warts or make them?

S: Coming; going; just wild cells here and there.

All right, Source, how are you doing?


S: Aye? Have you been feeling like the world’s doing what you’re wanting it to? Long silence.

Not the economy.

S: Ah, yes, the economy. Are you surprised about how it’s doing?

No. Not when you consider, you know, that insurance group—AIG—and the government bailed them out, and gave them some money all that money, and I read in the newspaper today that they’re getting one hundred and fifty million dollars in bonuses.

S: I bet AIG—how would you say that?

American . . .

S: Is that all?

American Investment Group.

S: But P-I-G . . .

That’s what they seem to be.

It’s AIG’s executives.

S: That are taking on the great bonuses while . . .

The P-I-Gs are the AIGs.

S: There you go. There you go.

[…] have to ask for bailout money, so they’re going to get bonuses for that?

S: So why would they get bonuses for that?

Don’t know.

S: Actually, Colleen said the answer.

They just won’t give up those old ways of looking at things and doing things.

S: They just won’t give up the old ways.

They claim that they had contracts that gave them these bonuses.

S: If you run this country and company and insured peoples into the ground, you can still have a bonus. That’s some good contract. Must have been a lawyer putting it together.

But they could not break that. That was the thing, that you wouldn’t allow the company to break these contracts. That would not be a good thing. Now, it seems like they could renegotiate the whole thing, but that’s their story and they’re sticking to it.

S: Now there’s something important to relate to with that story, and I’d like to think that all of you get the moral of the tale here. Tell me what this story says.

Well, we’ve been taught to honor compacts.

S: Good.

And compacts help to give clarity of agreements between people, that’s really what they’re doing, and so at another point in time, you were teaching us about renegotiation, and that you don’t always have to honor something if you can renegotiate it. You can negotiate it from circumstances that have changed. And to me that’s where this should be. It should be that these executives say, “You know, we really understand this is a difficult time. Here we are taking money in order to survive, and I think that I shouldn’t take this bonus right now, and we’ll reinvest that back in the company.”

S: The importance of renegotiation and of functioning honorably within it. What else? Steven.

The importance of looking at that contract before we help them. When you’re going to help somebody for your services, it’s good to draw some boundaries about how you’re going to help. And we didn’t look at the contract, nor put into the contract when we gave them money the stipulation that this may not be used to pay out bonuses.

S: Very good. Very good. What else?

For me one of the lessons is how we jump to conclusions when we read headlines that are written to get this knee-jerk reactions. I mean the bonuses were one half of one percent, and if they’d been given a thousand dollars, and they were keeping five dollar bonuses, people wouldn’t be upset. But because of the dollar amount, they’d got a hundred and some billion dollars in bail-out money, and they’re keeping less than half a percent in bonuses based on contracts. It’s a lot of money and we react to it, but to me it’s a real example in watching my reactions to situations in which all I’m getting is the surface.

S: Perceptual reality. And there was another.

Well, I think he’s said this already, and to me it’s all about being able and willing to shift, and as you see change, that you can enter with one set of perspectives, but things can change and part of our flexibility is to be able to see the change, and transition with the change, and maybe change how we are doing something.

S: That’s good.

It’s also a sense of entitlement because of the compacts made already, and because there is great power they hold—the executives—they have abused that power, and are just using those compacts to pay the money. In the situation, when you look at it as a whole situation is not the appropriate thing to do. And on the other hand, the other people who should be questioning that, not feeling empowered enough to stand up and say, “Wait, something is wrong. We need to change this.” So it’s the old patterns in both sides.

S: And, in addition to all of those good ways of looking at this, I would also say that it’s a lovely representation of chaos, and the kinds of behaviors that come about in chaos. Chaos itself is not a bad thing. Energy is energy. It’s not good energy. It’s not bad energy. Chaotic energy is energy that does not have a focus, but it is creative energy. Energy that you can take and make something out of, and everything you create will always be a reflection of yourself. That’s a very great gift, or a horrifyingly scary statement.

Remember, dear ones, the theory in America is that the people rule. Now, you know that to be so in some cases and not so in others. You make a difference. If you don’t like what your government is doing, let them know. It is an opportunity to grumble and make negative comments, and get really irritated, and get a lot of other people really irritated with you so that you can feel justified in all of that grumbling; or you can take action. I think one of the quickest ways for you to lose friends in a somewhat honorable way is when you get some of that grumbling coming your way, to ask the big question: “Have you written your Congress-people to let them know how you feel?” And that is a variation of the question that I ask you to ask on a regular basis when something is not going right. When somebody is not doing their job, not fulfilling their compact, you ought to ask them if they’ve lost their passion for the job and they don’t want it any more. It’s not risky.

All right, we have some questions. We have some answers. Maybe some answers will fit the questions. We never know. Let’s go. Who’s first?

“Samuel, at the last Lexington Lifescapes, you said that a way to make your spiritual life easier would be to understand your function line so that you can work toward that function line being physically expressed through you, but you never got to that. Please explain to us now how we can understand our function line so we may work toward having that function line being expressed through us.

S: All right. It wasn’t actually something I would have really taken a lot of time toward in that situation, but Guardians that I work with are here by way of the Avataric function line. If you know what that means, that tells you what the function is. That simple. Avataric function line. Really. That was it.

Oh, cheater.

Was I supposed to throw it?

S: Yes.


We’ll work on style. “Hello, Samuel.”

S: Hello, dear.

“We’ve recently incorporated the ah, oh, and hu sounds in the warm-ups of toning. When we’re doing these sounds do you want us to try to vibrate specific areas of our body?”

S: No, absolutely not.

“Or do you want us to find the pitches that work the best for each vowel sound?”

S: Yes. That was easy.

Okay. “Why is our economy continuing to spiral downward when so many people are sending energy for it to either stabilize or improve?”

S: “But I’m doing so much work to make it better!” How big is your country? More than a million or two.

Around three hundred.

S: Three hundred plus million. Is that what I heard?

Three hundred and fifty.

S: Three hundred and fifty million, and what about all of those that in one way or another are reliant on the United States for economic aide, or support in one way or another. How many do you think that adds to that? Well, quite a large number, I would imagine. How many Guardians would there be on the planet at this time?


S: Not accurate, but it definitely makes the point. Until you reach the point that the energy that you are putting out is stronger than the negative input of three hundred and fifty million and more other people, you are going to be holding back the storm as opposed to working within it while it hits. Remember that, though, remember that.

Your expectations may say, “I have worked this hard. There should be big flashy results,” but most of the important things, the really important things in your life are not about working really hard and having big flashy results. It is the constant moving forward, step by step. It is the not stopping, and certainly not turning round and going back the other way.

The more that you do to become the better and brighter, the more that you do to fulfill your compact with this world, consciously, then the better thoughts, and words, and deeds, and better intent—which is where the key of it is—the better intent you will be putting into the Grid, and that will show up. What have you been putting into the Grid in your everyday function? The only energy that is put into an incomplete Grid is put in by those who helped establish the Grid to begin with. Therefore, for the most part, mass consciousness is not putting into the Grid, but you are.

So look at the world, look at it. When you look at it and you see the AIG PIGs, or you see heart-wrenching poverty, starvation, disease, you see people living in ways that you could never think to live. When you see the anger and the pain and the hatred, I need you to remember that it will not change if you are not putting the opposite of those things into the Grid. Suffering in this world is the result of fear, and fear is conquered by . . .


S: . . . love. Think about what you are doing every day, what you are saying, what you are thinking. What gets you? What gets you down? What gets you angry?

Yes, ideal would be you only put good stuff in the Grid, but since this is, you know, human stuff, there is something that you can do to change what you just put in there when it’s less than what you would want to have put in there. And what you can do is pick yourself back up and keep going. Don’t focus on the lousy behavior that you just put into the world. Change yourself from the inside out so that that isn’t a button for you anymore. Let go of expectations. Release those things that hold you—bay’unz—that hold you in patterns of a lighter version of what you see in the world.

[Dog barks] You see, that was the first “Yes, I will.” Where is yours?

Are you asking about that Frank, or are you signaling me about time?

Ask you about that.

S: I tell you what, if we get through what we have, ask it. So write it down somewhere so you remember, but I want to try to get through some of these. So let’s go there.

“Samuel, it’s my understanding that a vegetarian diet allows a Guardian’s frequency to be higher, and that that is desirable for the workings of light we do with you. For this reason, we are careful about what we eat, make sure that ingredients are vegetarian. My question concerns vitamin D3. There is a vitamin D3 that is labeled vegetarian. The product is produced with the use of lanolin which comes from shorn sheep wool. The company is careful to point out that it is not vegan, just as dairy products are not vegan, yet are acceptable to vegetarians. Do you see this form of vitamin D3 as a suitable vegetarian supplement?”

S: There are so many directions to go with that one, you know. There’s just so many places that it could be picked on.

Biggest picture: you must do what is right for you. You do not want me directing every bit of your life. Needless to say, I don’t want to do it. You don’t want me to be the sort of being that tells you every little piece. Mind you, now and again, for special occasions I will make some very strong suggestions, but even then they get softened.

Those who are vegan would say to most of you in here that you’re not vegetarian. Those who eat meat look at those who eat fish, and say, “Gosh, you’re so extreme!” And that’s not even looking to the next step. You must do what you can deal with. When you know the why you may choose to go further with it, or maybe less far with it.

Another direction that I will take with it is the reminder that greater is that which is in you than that which is in the world, and I’m not referring to the lanolin in you there. By that I am saying to please remember that you should reach that point—all right, I said that awful word; didn’t I. Did you catch it? We should flock me . . . flog me, right? I said “flock” though didn’t I? So I picture this red-black flock, something there, yes? All right, no flock. Flog me for that. Yes, I said “should.” There are some “shoulds” that work. You should live love in this world. You should do what you can to be functioning at the very best that you are at all times. Is that possible? I would not suggest it if it were not possible. Is it realistic? Well, all right, maybe not, which is why you want to stay up on that.

If you are taking D3, and you know that your body needs it, hopefully because you’ve had some test or another that has told you so, and you have looked all over to find it, and this is the only way you can get it, first: I doubt that any of that is that blatant, bold, that clear, but suppose it is, you are the one that needs to look at it and say, “Am I in a place of enough balance in my life that I can deal with this?” What you are is bigger than that.

On the other hand, if it helps you to feel that you are doing a good job by grabbing a hold of every little thing, and being as absolutely pure in every possible area of your life, and that’s what works for you, then go with that, because it’s about what works for you.

“Now, Samuel, I see a little problem in that because, you know, the why I want it to work or not work might be bigger than what I can consciously deal with.” And that’s why it’s so important to regularly look at yourself, what you’re doing, what you put in your body, what you put out from your body. “Am I doing the best I can where I am with what I have at the time? Am I functioning in this world at my highest and best? Am I putting limits upon what I’m doing by my belief system, my thoughts, my actions?” And now again be brave enough to ask somebody you care about, “Am I humanly obsessing or as a Guardian, consciously functioning?” “Am I looking at the spindly tree and forgetting that there is a greater forest? Am I looking at the forest and forgetting about the spindly tree?” Your words for that might be things like, “If you were to tell me three things that I do really well, and three things that probably are stumbling blocks from your point of view for me, what would you say?”

The best you can, where you are, with what you have at the time. Who you are today is not who you will be tomorrow, if you are on the right road.

Thank goodness.

S: More.

“Samuel, would you please elaborate on your statement about 2009 being a good year?”

S: You are right now in March, and you’re just about at the equinox, correct? You’ve got a week for that, maybe? And equinox is a time of balance. In the first quarter of the year, you are going to be finding yourself doing a lot that shows where balance is needed in your life, and where you already have balance in your life. This is important, because as you are working toward the middle of your year, up to the summer solstice, you are going to be seeing yourself a lot.

Now, why would I think that’s a great thing? Because I know what you are, and I know that you sincerely desire to be the best you can be. And if it weren’t for the stupid people that you are surrounded with for half of the day, you would be perfect all of the time. I know that’s so. Oops. I know that you intend to function with love, and to constantly grow and change and gain strength to be the best Guardian that you can be to fulfill your compact. And you are going to see everything you need to do that shows itself in your life, so that in the second half of the year you will, and you can, make the decisions that are needed to open those doors that have been closed, to see the doorways you have not seen before.

This is an abundant, bliss-filled, powered-by-love world. You have a community of people who love you, even when you’re cranky, and who care about what’s going on in their spiritual lives, and who, like you, want to help make the world a better place, want to become the best they can be for the sake of this world—something that for you sitting here, does not seem so strange, but is one of the rarest treasures available to you in your life. How I wish you really saw it that way. You have what you need to be the best you can be, and this year, you have everything within you, dancing with lights and waving arms, saying, “Look, this works, this doesn’t. Make the right choice!” And as you change, as you make those right choices, as you open your heart, you become more of what you truly are, you open that heart to the blinding light of love, functioning in this world once again. And that will have a profound effect on every aspect of your being—except where there is resistance, all right? Let’s put that over there—every aspect of your being in a, positive, joy-filled, empowered way, because that’s what Source is, isn’t it? And you got it from the Source’s mouth.

“Samuel, in a brief discussion about the completion of Sacred Status, you have said all structures will come down. Were you referring to government, banks, churches, social, etc.?”

S: Well, the etcetera is a very big arena there, but yes.

It’s got four questions. Can I weasel another one?

S: When it’s your turn next.


“Samuel in a recent newsletter issue, I read that “you have over-populated your world.” Since the Guardianship is responsible for this situation, what can we constructively do . . .”

S: That does not mean that in quite that way, meaning to guide and guard life force, that is extremely over-populated. Sorry. Go ahead.

“What can we constructively do to help remedy it and bring about balance?”

S: Saltpeter in the water supply?

Good one, Samuel.

S: Thank you.

It’s not about how many people are on the planet. It’s about making use of resources in a way that is balanced across the world. It’s about not over-using personally, and not under-using either.

Do you know that it’s just as much dishonoring the tree or the plant or the person to neglect what they have to offer as it is to strip it bare. Moderation in all things. Think about Source One here, all right? He has great gifts. Very, very talented in many ways, and is, I know, amongst you and certainly many of you who are watching this, he is a being filled with such love that you enjoy being with him, and he loves sharing love, having the opportunity to do what he does well.

If somebody—I’m going to use your photography for this; a very in-the-world example—if somebody were to say to you, “I was on the roof at Martin’s house, and I looked out at the city lights in the background, and it was one of the most stunningly beautiful views I’d had in a long time.” Would you want to go over there one night and take a photo of it?


S: And he’d be very glad that you made the suggestion. Now, maybe he’d get there and say, “All right. Right off, Colleen’s suggestion’s not so good,” but would be happy, would not feel the slightest bit put out, or stuck in the way of . . . if it’s there to give, the desire is to give it. Love does not hoard. Should I say that a different way, or were you able to hear the word I used?


S: All right. Make use of what you have. Don’t overuse it. Don’t underuse it. The more you learn about the resources in this world, the better the decisions are that you can make, and it’s one of those areas in your life where you, all by yourself, can make a difference, but it takes your knowledge. So figure it out. Water your garden with caught rainwater. Might provide enough for somebody else down the road to have a cup they need. The more you know, the more you see ways to make a difference. Study it up, and do what your heart tells you is the right thing to do.

I’ll try part two of the question. So this is back to the structures coming down. “Does this also mean that the U.S. or any other country will lose their sovereignty when the government disintegrates?”

S: No. It does not.

They need to learn [how] to ask.

S: The assumption there is that the government’s going to disintegrate, and that that’s what I was talking about—the disintegration of—which, of course, I was not at all.

Structures will come down. And there will be places in the world where indeed, as you are seeing right now, governments are being literally changed, and that will always be the case. However, your country is woven in a long, long line of very studied, cause-and-effect probabilities so that your current rulers will be able to stay in some way, your current rulers. And I don’t mean the individuals, I mean the positions.

It would probably be more helpful if there was a great disintegrating of all things upstanding, but, you know, if that was the case, the chaos would probably be the first time I would say, “Not such a good thing.” Don’t forget that the Universe not only wants, but needs you functional and happy so that the functional can continue. Even massive change doesn’t mean you are going to be living radically altered lives, which might be saying something really sad to some of you.

What do you need to be the best you can be? You’ll have that.

“Samuel, you have told us that most of the Guardians you work with are on the Avataric function line. Please explain what other function line Guardians who work with you are on.”

S: Good try. No. Should he get to ask another one? No. Go ahead.

What other function lines are there besides the Avataric function line, because you only work with those on the Avataric, but what other function lines are there?

S: Ultimately, what are the function lines?

Intent; thought; word; deed.

S: Correct. Ultimately, the function lines are intent, thought, word, deed. So that’s his turn.


“My understanding is that as humans we are spiritual beings having human experiences, and our human forms have evolved like other species on the planet. My question is, When and how in the evolutionary process did our unique spiritual being-ness appear?”

S: It has never not been there. It was never disappeared. Life force in this world is a great function of Source. You have always been surrounded by and centered in your true spiritual essence. Your ability to recognize it and act on it, that evolves. The spirit [is] always there.

“Hello, Samuel.”

S: Hello.

“For dozens of years, I have had the sense that someday I will no longer have to eat. In addition, I have heard about a group of people in California who have learned how to stop eating and somehow gather all the nutrition they need from the air and maybe water.”

S: Air-etarians.

I only breath air that other people have never breathed.

S: And that keeps you from getting ill, right?

Oh, yes.

S: Forgot that recently, did you?

“Now there appears to be a general trend of food sensitivities and food allergies among Guardians as well as the general population.”

S: You think?

“Please explain how you see our food requirements and our food sensitivities and our increasing diet restrictions are likely to evolve during the remainder of our lifetimes. Thank you.”

S: Is it just me, or was that a little tricky to follow?

Those of you in medicine may know that when a patient is dying, it’s not all that unusual for them to stop eating, and they can go an amazingly long time without eating, but it catches up with you.

Negative nitrogen balance.

S: Again.

Negative nitrogen balance.

S: A negative nitrogen balance occurs, and talk to Colleen for more details about that.

This reminds me of the earlier question about resources. What is available to you is available to you so that you can make use of it. As you change and grow, within to without, you become aware that there are things you no longer care to have, because they make you nauseous, or you no longer like the sound of the banana peel when you pull it down from the banana. But for whatever reason, you naturally put it aside.

Your nutrition needs change as your lifestyle changes, and your ability to make the highest and best use of what nutrients you do bring into your body also changes usually with the health of your body. All the good intentions in the world are not going to have much effect on a filthy body, and so having your body as clean and clear as it can be is important. Air-etarian works if you are liquid nutrition. Air-etarian works if you are on your way out in the next few weeks anyway, but as a Guardian you are constantly in healing mode—and some of you in emergency healing mode—because you are changing on such a fast basis. You need nutrition, good healthy food. You need to give your body what it needs to be as strong as it can be so that you can be.

You know, it’s not a badge of honor to be so sensitive to everything in this world, even though I do think that there are some of you who think it is. You’re doing what works for you, and that’s the key. Do what works for you.

“Lately I’ve heard a number of people around me wondering out loud what kind of god would permit so much suffering in the world. What can we do to help ourselves and others bring positive meaning into our perspective on that suffering?”

S: I don’t think I want to give you something positive to think about so that you can nicely adjust the horrors of life in this world into a little box that says I’m not touched by this. I think you should watch the news every day and cry because it breaks your heart. I think you should pay attention to what’s going on behind the news, and get holy anger. And I also think that you should always remember that there is so much in your reality that you have no control over, and remember what it is you do have control over, and make that a very powerful force. Let’s see, what would that be? What is it that you have control over in this world? And the only answer is yourself.

What kind of god would allow suffering in this world? Well, look around this room—that’s the kind. And if you are watching this from afar, or listening to it, go look in the mirror. Maybe what the world needs is a better god. So be it.

We’re fresh out.

S: Frank had that question. Remember? And hurry because the tape is running out. Time is on the edge.

It was a question about—I remember my question, but I forget what we were talking about.

S: Give me your question.

The question was . . . I was going to ask about the effects . . . you’ve talked to us a lot about karma, and the fact that I can change a lot today, but it doesn’t erase the effects of the things I did previously.

S: Sounds like he’s remembering the next newsletter interview. The next newsletter.

The question was about “I’ve been sending all this energy to the economy and it’s not changing. How come? How come it’s not getting better?” And I was saying, but if what’s going on in the economy today and in the financial markets throughout the world is karma of the last x-number of years, it seems to me that we can’t suddenly make it better, because it’s a karmic reaction. It’s the reaction of what’s gone on before. We can try to soften it, as we can in our own lives, as you were teaching in the last Lifescapes.

S: And as I discussed in the last interview, which will show up on the next newsletter.

Right. So I’m just saying, is that correct? There are certain things we cannot change because it’s a karmic reaction.

S: There are a lot of things you cannot change.

Would that be true with much of what’s going on in the economy today? That it’s a reaction of years of abuse.

S: Yes, but that does not mean you are powerless, and that’s important. It’s not wise to give up on your world because you’ve given up on your own empowerment, which is what that says. You know, you really are here to make this world a better place. You really are here to make this world a better place, and you do that—yes, of course by—being the very best you can where you are with what you have at the moment. You do it with love, absolutely. You do it by making your piece of the world as perfect as you can be, because each piece forms the whole, and piece by piece the world comes back together.

It’s bleak sometimes, looking out there, looking in your wallet, looking at all the things you want. That’s not meant to be a great, frustrating discouragement, it’s meant to be encouraging. It’s bleak out there—make it better. It’s dark—make it lighter. There’s anger and hatred—give it love. It’s a remarkable world, and a remarkable time, and you are exactly the group to make it happen. And it is happening.

And what is that?

Last time you said that it was saying, “Help me. I’m dying. Technology.”

S: Exactly so. Well, I wasn’t certain if Noki was snoring maybe, or Hapi and Wu Hu were having some kind of quiet discussion.

Do not forget when you look in the mirror that you are the best thing that’s happened so far. I never lose hope, because I know your heart. And with such handsome Source representations, don’t you think, it’s obviously better?

Enjoy. The more you enjoy, the better the world becomes. Play with your puppy. Laugh, love, often and much. Be the best you can where you are with what you have at the time, and know that tomorrow it will be even better. And it will.

Glochanumora. Thank you, dear ones.
