[Just before Samuel began his customary stretching out of Lea’s body, an infant in the audience let out a squeal.]

Samuel: [She was] quicker than you were.

Greetings, dears.

Greetings, Samuel.

S: One gift. Who’s got it? Peggy.

I have finally, after many, many years and many, many wars—mine and everybody else’s—have decided that I cannot [go on] getting angry at the government or the people when they do something I don’t approve of. I’ve decided to allow them to do what they want to do…[laughter]. This has broken centuries of tradition.

S: I tell you what’s so lovely about your statement. You see, it’s an absolute proof that, one—you have something within yourself that moves out to the world, because that’s what you’ve been working on personally—and seeing victory in—and able to live one to one, and now it’s moved to the country. Good work.

And in this Year of Unity I think that’s one of the most blessed gifts there can be, because what you’re giving to is that you can allow others to make whatever choices they need to for whatever it is they need to do. Good work.

I only asked for one, although I’m sure that you’re all absolutely bouncing with gifts to give and that you’re all quite certain that you have many good things to share, but be sure that you add those, during the weeks and during the months.

Until then I want to get on with questions and answers this night. Are you aware that that’s what this night is about, questions and answers? And do you understand the question and answer process? I’m not sure that I was hearing an explanation, so let me give it to you.

You send up a question you’ve written down, whatever you want to ask about. Be aware that this isn’t a marvelous sort of time to ask such things as what’s the mileage on my car, mainly because I’m not likely to answer it—because I don’t know. What is the mileage on your car? I have no idea. Nor is it a very good time to ask such things as, “Is Johnny going to come back to me?” although you can. Go ahead, but you might be a bit embarrassed when you get the answer. It’s more often a time to ask such things as, what do you believe about this, or what’s happening in this situation, or what’s moving in this direction, or, I have a question about this teaching, or that sort of thing that would be of interest to the general audience. Be sure that, whatever you ask, I’m going to answer it in a way that not only can you get the answer that you’re looking for, but that the group as a whole can get the greatest answer, also.

I’ll answer what you ask. That’s a warning. And along with that, let me say, you ask whatever you want, I’ll answer whatever I want.

All right. Mary, will you be my reader.

Frank, I know that you thought it might be you this night, eh. You dressed so pretty. But I want some feminine energy doing it, eh.

All right, here are the rules, dear. You read it as you see it. And then, do you know how to get rid of it once you’ve read it. [Mary demonstrates tossing the paper aside.] You do it with a flourish. Remember how Martin does it. He just tosses it with a flourish, as opposed to how Frank does it; he tosses it with a flourish into the face of the person on the front row. Aye? Your energy looks good, dear. You ready for this?

[Mary:] Yes.

S: Good.

[Mary:] “The last few months have been a time of heightened emotions and communication during meditation. How does this relate to the energy of Unity coming from the Source?”

S: How is it the Year of Unity? What you have been experiencing is the energy that allows you to make the most connections that you can, and if you remember when I discussed this with you at the very beginning, what I talked about was that the Unity naturally had to do with what was going on within yourself, and then it will have its effect on the world around you. So, what you’re going to be finding is a progressive change, and I mean that; a progressive change. You’re moving into—shall I say it?—the most powerful time you’ve ever had on this planet to date. Some very strong Wesak energy which has to do with some very good connections. The energy thus far has been working toward attunement. You’ve had an instrument that you’ve played, but every time you play it you tune it again, don’t you? Hopefully, unless it’s a piano or something like that. Because you want to get even the slightest nuances—the subtle changes—corrected. You’ve been seeing that in your life, also, these last couple of months. You’ve been seeing it in your life as adjustment, rearranging, retuning. And you’ve been seeing it with many of your ideas, with the more creative connections than you had been making, and you’re also seeing it with some releases, letting go, with some retuning your—as Peggy did earlier—perhaps some judgments, opinions. Within your personal meditative time these readjustments can be giving you the polarity: the greatest connections you’ve ever felt you’ve been making or absolute death—nothing—nothing’s going on, nothing’s there. Remember, it’s retuning.

Attunement time, until the spring equinox, when that energy changes and begins moving toward action.

[Mary:] “Could you describe the earth’s chakra system? Is the entire surface of this planet the earth’s crown chakra?”

S: Nay and nay. I cannot describe the earth’s chakra system, essentially because that’s a teaching I don’t particularly work with. Let me give you an explanation.

The earth is a living being; it has an energy system. Human’s chakra system is a specifically developed means through which that energy does two things: receives and lets out. The earth receives; it lets out to those life forms on it, but it doesn’t put out to the Universe, so, except by giving you parallels that I believe would actually end up confusing more than helping, because I don’t think it’s an accurate parallel. It’s simply something that a mind has said, “Oh, look, human beings have chakras; the earth has chakras, too.” And I’ve said that we’re not going to play with that, although perhaps it’s a teaching you can make use of. So nay to that. But let me say this: Remembering that the earth is a living being, that is full of energy circuitry, much the same way you are filled with energy circuitry, and that where your main circuitry comes together you have a heart or you have a solar plexus—an energy plexus—or you have a brain, your planet does have major groupings of energy. Sometimes these are recognized as sacred spots, but essentially they are energy power points. Look to see where you’re drawn for information about that. And there is a time that we could give a teaching about power points. I think we’ve got one coming up. [To David] You’re doing one, aren’t you, dear?

We’re working on it.

S: Good. Excellent. Good. I’m not going to go that direction right now. And let me tell you this. Feel very free to use the information you’re finding that’s out there. It’s not esoterically confusing, that which works, that which fits with that which fits—this source works with this source works with this source—just toss out the oddballs here and there. Remember? All right, good. And that will be a means to develop that teaching, because the information’s already out there.

[To the group] But what I want to make use of is, you can make a power point, which would essentially be a heart chakra point. And you do that by group mind working together consistently with a common thought of love. You can make your house a power point. You have made this center one. So create heart points for the earth.

The second part of that was…

[Mary:] “Is the entire surface of this planet the earth’s crown chakra?”

S: Nay.

[Mary:] “When something bad happens, how do you decide whether it is your issue or not?”

S: Very good. Something awful has happened in your life. Some sort of crisis. And of course the first thing that you delightful New Agers do is you say, what’s the lesson in this? Good for you. Good for you. But some of you, what you do at that point is you start forcing the issue. Everything that you do you do to the best of your ability. You do it with love. You make a sacred act out of everything that you do. Everything you do, you do with a willingness to be the best you can, to love. And if you’re doing that and you have something awful happen in your life, you need to ask, “All right, is there anything I could be doing differently?” Is there anything in your personal should-haves that you should have done? Now, you be honest with yourself. Most of the time, when you ask yourself that question, you come up with fifteen or twenty things you could be doing. Before those opportunities in which there isn’t anything different you would do, then it’s a good possibility it’s not your lesson.

So, in order to get better definition, one thing you might do is talk to somebody whom you have a lot of respect for, someone who is a teacher for you, perhaps, or a helper for you, and you talk to him to get a better perspective, a different perspective. See if you can get any extra information that way. “Here is what I’ve been doing. This is what happened. I don’t see that I could have been doing anything differently. Do you?” And, if you’re still getting that there’s not anything more you could have been doing, then, again, that’s a pretty good sign that it’s probably not your lesson.

Now, what does that mean? You’re in the midst of something. You’ve got the effect happening, and yet it’s not your lesson. What does that mean, somebody? What’s happening there?

You might be helping someone else with their progression.

S: Perhaps that means you’re aiding somebody else in their progression. A very lovely, lofty thought. It’s actually very accurate. But can we get more practical than that? Why would you choose to do that?

Something else to learn that you hadn’t counted on.

S: There might be another issue in there that’s something you can learn from. That’s good. That would be in there. Aye.

Being willing to let go?

S: And more often than not. Thank you. What’s in it for you is a lesson that not everything is about you, that there is a place for letting somebody else go through what they need. There you are in the best relationship you’ve ever had in your life, and you absolutely know that you are destined to be together, and they won’t have anything to do with it, and it’s breaking your heart, and you want to know why it’s your lesson when it’s obviously that person’s problem.

There are times in which you are the catalyst for somebody else’s lessons, in which, by your doing the best you can where you are with what you have, it opens the door for somebody else to learn something. Sometimes it shows itself up in a situation in which you’re recognizing that you’re ready for change in your life, and you’re with somebody who’s in absolute rebellion against such change. And by your doing what’s best for you it’s going to cause difficulty for another, and you know that doing what’s best for you isn’t bad for you, and you also know that doing what’s best for you isn’t bad for another person, but it still has brought up their issues, and you have become the catalyst for those issues to come up. It’s not your lesson that is the ultimate one going on, the big one, the obvious first choice. But it is your lesson to be able to see, first, that it’s not your lesson. One of the hardest things there is to learn in the process of spiritual growth is what is yours and what is not, when to take action, when to not, when to move, when to not. Sometimes it’s simply a matter of recognizing that the lesson is, you don’t have the power to hurt somebody, even when you’re with them and they’re hurting, that everybody’s making their choices based on where they are, and that yours is to respond with love rightfully, honestly. That’s very often how that works.

All right.

[Mary:] “Samuel, you once said that the gift of Atlantis was communication. What did that mean for those times, and how can we best use the gift for these times? Thank you.”

S: All right, remember that, as far as the teachings of Atlantis are concerned, those individuals who are now here, that have had or think they have had—however you want to accept that Atlantean experience—are, without fail, in one way or another in your experience, working very extremely with lessons about communication, because the work of Atlantis was communication. What does that mean? What does that mean in regard to this question? Essentially that a lot of breakdown occurs when communication doesn’t. Does that answer that?

[Mary:] I think so. “What did that mean for those times and how can we best use the gift for these times?”

S: Ah. Do you like the airy-fairy stuff?


S: The airy-fairy. You know, the great unprovable metaphysical esoteric mish-mash about such things as Mu, Lemuria, Atlantis, such things as that. You get the final word, and it’s channeled. I ask you, how can you trust that, eh? [Not much laughter] Slow group tonight. All right, wake up. Atlantis, indeed, was a place, be it a place that populates your dreams and enchants your imagination or be it a place that actually existed. Atlantis was. Many of you, even if it’s simply on a level in which you just love the idea of Atlantis and you find yourself drawn to books or teachings or anything that is about something that is Atlantean, even if it’s on such a level as that—very, very vague—you find yourself drawn. And, whether or not you have any belief or trust, even if you have the belief and the idea of past existences, some of you feel moved for information about Atlantis. If nothing else, Atlantis has captured the imagination as a legend, and it doesn’t matter if you want to think of it as a legend or a reality, because what is your history? But someone’s, in this case Plato’s, perhaps, version of what happened, that may or may not survive time and may or may not be embellished as time goes by. What is truth but that. Your work is to run it through your own heart, based on where you are at the time, and make a determination as to “is it something I find acceptable and want to accept right now or not.” And if it’s not, chalk it up with Grimm and Andersen, and, if it is, heed what can be learned from it.

Of all the things said about Atlantis, what is said in all is that Atlantis was a very powerful lesson about proper communication. Atlantis was, in a sense, the county seat of wisdom, and the temple complexes held the greatest teachings of the day, because the individuals, the masters, that were gathered had been seeded into that place. It was the great rule, if you will, built on an awful lot of rock, that, just like Scotland and Ireland and England, the islands of Iceland and even some along your coast have a firm base of quartz, so Atlantis was built on crystal. Crystal, as you know, is a very popular thing. How many of you are wearing crystal or keep it around you or with you? Many of you? It’s a very popular thing to have? Anybody here wearing a diamond? That’s crystal; come on now. It’s a very popular thing, because it has an amazing ability. Quartz sends, amplifies, energy. So imagine Atlantis as a great receiver, a great sender, and on it was a society and a spiritual, a life-work teaching, from which came the foundation for many of the truths that later seeded the philosophies of the planet now. Imagine that sort of truth-teaching being concentrated in group thought on a great crystal transmitter. No wonder it seemed a beacon in the world. Individuals were taught such things as hoo-manity traits. They were not limited in the same way that humanity seems to be limited now by the five senses on the most basic levels. What you think of as psychic was, of course, very normal, and the higher magics, meaning the higher uses of natural law, the higher magics were considered means to create and manifest what was needed, all toward the higher development of humanity.

Atlantean missionaries seeded ancient Egypt and many of the mystery schools there. Your South American continent and the great tunnel systems up in Central America and the pyramids of the ancient Indians in your Americas. Across Europe are the beginnings of many of the Druidic, Calean [Chaldean?], and even some later what became known as Christian teachings had some very strong roots in Atlantean truth.

But, you know, it does absolutely no good to have all the information if you can’t do anything with it. It’s nothing for me to say to you, “If you do this…,” if you don’t understand what’s being said. And so, in order to have a teaching, there must be a means in which that teaching is given, and that is why the whole foundation centered on communication. Communication begins with an individual’s ability to communicate within their own self, and then from there move to their ability to communicate outside of themselves. What is it you think Amy [the baby who had been vocalizing, usually softly, throughout the meeting] is doing over there? She’s just chatting away, waiting for somebody to notice. Lisa [her mother] is wishing she’d stop. But that’s absolutely how it works. The breakdown happens when you stop communicating one to one and start expecting and presuming, when you don’t make the teaching simple enough to be understood and you presume intelligence.

“But, Samuel, I don’t like it when it’s so simple.” Then it’s because you’ve turned off half your mind and forgotten how to get something out of every level of existence.

Communication broke up Atlantis, because when, at the very last, the very guardians no longer had a system they could trust, when the teachings were being used to manipulate rather than elevate, when the sacred was too simple, then the very fabric of Atlantis and the power of those teachings was gone. It took a long time, but it was communication that did it. Just as in your own life. When you stop communicating you lose touch with what’s important.

[Mary:] “Samuel, what are the essential elements of true personal power?”

S: Is this a workshop I’m doing right now? Sounds like it.

The path of the five-pointed star is the ability to express fully beauty, righteousness, goodness, freedom and joy. So if you get to know her now, you’ll have half of it over with.

Beauty is not the ability to see that which is pretty. Righteousness is not being righteous. Goodness is not being good. Freedom doesn’t mean you live in a democratic society, and joy doesn’t speak of being happy. These are the final elements of mastery—not ascendancy, but mastery. And essentially those are the characteristics.

Beauty is the ability, essentially, to see the Source in all things. It’s what makes you pull over as the sun is going down over the ocean, which you have seen a hundred times, and all of a sudden this one brings tears to your eyes with the beauty of it.

Righteousness is the result of right thinking, right observation, right meditation, and right contemplation—meaning raising the levels of the mind to the highest possible use and consciously acting in a sacred fashion based on what you receive from doing that. Then you become a righteous individual.

Goodness is the putting of that into the world in action. It’s not mimicking Mother Theresa, it’s being Mother Theresa.

Freedom doesn’t mean you don’t have anybody nagging you, or you finally got that divorce. It speaks of having released yourself from the bondage of that which holds you from doing that which you’re here to do. Fear. Ego. Beliefs.

And joy is the result of inner peace by choice, which has created success.

All right.

[Mary:] “What are the major influences on the USA economy at this time? Has the war brought the economy out of recession? What can we do to benefit from the current situation? What areas are best avoided?”

S: Goodness. All right, start at the beginning one. What are the major influences?

The most important influence on any economy—on any issue ever—and this is something important to remember—the most major thing that affects is group consciousness. Do not ever be fooled by the importance—group thinking. You’re convinced it’s time for gloom; you’re going to surround yourself with those who have many of the same beliefs, and you’re going to create it, sure enough; you’re going to create it.

All right. On the other hand, with a conscious awareness that this is one of the most alive times this planet has seen, and in the Year of Unity you also have a very powerful kind of creativity, that, in fact, coming into the moon of Aries coming up very soon, you’re going to have a very strong creative surge, and you’re going to see the economy pick up around that. But, nonetheless, it’s a time of creativity, invention, starting, and that’s going to be very, very helpful toward an economic condition.

Your war isn’t doing the damage you feared, nor is it the answer you hoped, but it has a very powerful effect on the economy, because it’s going to, in all of the ways that I’m sure you’re already seeing, it’s going to be opening up very many job opportunities, and it’s going to be freeing up money, freeing up money because your government’s going to be in receipt. Now, that’s your newscast, not my forecast. You’ve got that. You know that.

Service industries in the second six months of the year are going to be picking up tremendously. You’re also going to be seeing technology advancing. Your consumer goods are going to be holding steady—dropping a bit, rising a bit, dropping a bit—and your stock market’s going to be slowly rising and rising and rising. I don’t consider that as good as some of you do.

Your economy is not particularly changed, meaning I don’t see great changes from the way it is right now. In the midst—how many times have you heard me say this, and as often as you ask the question you’ll hear it again—in the midst of what you call your great Depression, there were those who never were touched, weren’t there? And in the times of your greatest prosperity there were those in great need, weren’t there? Your work is to get your economic situation taken care of. Your work is to simplify your finances, get yourself out of debt, pay off especially your long-term credit. To learn how to balance your checkbook, to learn to be honest with what you have and to live with it and to simplify, not because there is going to some great disaster and it’s a good thing you learned how to live on forty-five cents a week, but because there are going to be more and more opportunities to pack up and move to where you can be of more use, and you can’t do that when you’re tied in.

You need the ability to have fun, to play, to get things taken care of

Does that run through them all?

[Mary:] I think so. “What are the major gifts and lessons of the war in the Persian Gulf which just ended: 1. for the U.S. citizens; 2. for the Iraqi citizens; 3. for Europe?”

S: Answer that. What are the major gifts for the U.S. citizens?


S: Unity. And Iraqi and European. What else? Unity, that’s a very big one, and, indeed, it has had a powerful effect, hasn’t it? Many of you displaying yellow ribbons? [No response.] Well, that one didn’t work, did it?

Wrong group.

S: Wrong group. Any of you been watching the news? Aye? Any of you that have been avoiding the news for quite some time found yourself glued to it?

A tremendous amount of energy. You could use it any way you wanted to.

S: Aye, there’s a lot going on that way. Many of you been regularly sending energy to the troops and to the situation? Should have asked that first, eh. If you’ve been doing that, raise your hand. [Many hands go up.] Have you been—if you were sending energy daily to the Armed Forces before that, raise your hand. [No hands.] Point made.

Anybody in here get a deeper sense of the human situation, a sense of suffering? Did you find yourself, because of your amazing satellite connections, did you find yourself on the doorstep of somebody else’s misery, and find yourself affected by it? Aye. Does it do anything to you, cause you to act, to think, to send differently?

Does it cause you to wonder about your Mohammedan neighbors? Did it cause you to seek out any answers as to what that philosophy is about that makes that whole system seem so different? Did it do that for you?

It made this world smaller. And, in other directions, it taught your country a whole lot about what it needs to do in order to wage war, in regard to having the people to do it. And you’re going to be seeing some changes in your military system. It also gave the opportunity to get rid of all of your stockpiled weapons, ammunitions and outmoded and not quite as useful—but still, for this process, useful—weaponry.

What does it give Europe?

A common bond?

S: A common bond. Many of the very same things that went on in this country, but they were affected a bit differently. You had Germany, that had just gone through so much change, and much of Europe right next door to countries that were still going through much radical change, and there, not so very far away, was another war to get aligned together, and fight for right with might.

Europe had the greatest protests, the biggest amounts of people coming together saying this isn’t the way to do it. What does that say?

People want peace.

S: It was a very big statement for Europe as a whole: “We’re not going to put up with this.”

What about Iraq? What did they get from this? [No answer.] Hello!

An insight to what’s going on.

S: Perhaps an insight to what’s going on. Can you be a bit more specific than that?

Well, it gave them something to do for quite some time.

S: Gave them something to do. Thank you, dear.

Arab unity is necessary. Not necessarily a union of nations as much as it is a union of thought. If your society is going to be based upon religious philosophy, then you cannot have separation, or you’re going to have separate societies, which is what the Arab nations have had. That’s going to be changing.

I don’t find it pleasant that there’s going to be a greater Americanization of the Arab world, but there will be some of that—simply because, in your parlance, you were the winners, if that’s possible. Certainly westernization, but perhaps that will lead to greater understanding.

The world is divided into three parts. Don’t be fooled—it’s religious issues. The Christians, the Muslims, the Jews. As far as your powered leaders are concerned. And, although the eastern segment has a very strong effect, that’s a teaching of blending, synthesizing and working together. Not so with Christianity, Judaism, or Mohammedanism.


S: And that’s why. That’s exactly why. Out of the same base you have three separate plants.

Don’t forget this is the Year of Unity. Unity. And those issues have brought together. The work that’s needed is to keep them coming together. Starts with you.

[Mary:] “Nostradamus predicted the rise of an antichrist during the 1990s in Persia, the area now known as the Middle East. Is Sad am Hussein the antichrist …”

S: Persia is Saudi Arabia, isn’t it?

Iran is Persia.

S: Iran, Persia. Is that right? All right.

[Mary:] “Is Sad am Hussein the antichrist predicted by Nostradamus, or was Nostradamus referring to another person and/or energy?”

S: Well, of course, not being in Nostradamus’s head, I cannot tell you what he was specifically seeing. However, Sad am Hussein is not the antichrist … unless you’re really desperate for one.

[Mary:] “It has been very hard for me to see how different choices from our leaders might have affected the Middle East situation. If, at the time of Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait, a truly enlightened being had been placed at the head of our country, what choices might he have made differently, and what would have been the most likely course of events from such a series of highly spiritually motivated decisions?”

S: The judgment in the statement is forgetting something very important. You do have a very enlightened leader. You have exactly the reflection of you. Don’t forget that. You have what you’ve asked for. Don’t forget that. And that leader made exactly the right response for the course at the time. Now, I’m not by any means saying that, had it been different, it would have been different. Isn’t true, because of course that is true. If someone else were there, another decision may have been made, but don’t get yourself caught up in “if-onlys,” “should-haves.” Stay in your now. You had happen exactly what needed to happen, and it followed exactly the course that it could have followed. And it worked in the greatest way possible for that situation, because that’s what you have, and that’s all you work with. You lose a lot of yourself, a lot of yourself, when you let yourself get into the judgment that says, that wasn’t a spiritual person, that person wasn’t doing the best they could where they were with what they have, and you set yourself up for being judged in the same way. Don’t do that.

[Mary:] “The war in the Middle East has glamorized the military and military technology. It seems that this will encourage humanity to continue to solve its problems with violence. What is your perspective on that?”

S: One of the things that I think was noticed by very many was that your technology is absolutely overwhelming, that your technology allows me to destroy the building without the building next to it being very hurt, and that, if I want to specifically target the door, someone might can still get out the back.

Hear this, because it’s going to be an extremely radical statement: I think that your weaponry is moving more toward psychological war, which is yet very dangerous, but psychological war. More so than some of the more … broad scale brutality that you have had in some of your more recent wars.

I’m a peacenik, but these are your lessons. One of the things that this war has done is cause a whole generation of people to stand up and say, “I don’t want to see that.” Because that’s also the gift of your technology; you get to see it. It shows you your responsibility. If you don’t like it, darlings, you talk to the people in charge of appropriating, will you? You like it, then you tell them, “Good job.” Unless you want a government by default, then take up your responsibility. That’s your weapon.

[Mary:] “What is your definition of an adept?”

S: In the same way that you have degrees when you are working toward your belts in martial arts, adept simply is a degree of awareness. I recognize an adept as one who is aware of communication beyond their own selves and has the ability to move beyond this world at will—that is astral travel, if you wish. An adept. You know how to make the contact, and you can function with it. You know how to move beyond. That means you’re in charge of your dreams, for instance. And you’re certainly in charge of your life. Adept.

[Mary:] “Is the prediction for the earth shifting on its axis at the end of the century correct? If so, what changes will occur?”

S: Remember that the earth is shifting on its axis as you speak. Right now, at this moment. And it has been shifting for a very long time, and it will continue to shift for a very long time. The idea of a great upheaval, although popular in some quarters, is not necessary. And I do not agree that, in order to pierce the veil—it is already being evaporated—it is necessary to shift the polar axis and bring about great destruction, for that to happen. In everything in your life, the gentle consistent action gets you there, and lasts—a whole lot better than the great explosion. So make that the choice.

[Mary:] “Please give us the basic definition of the Christ energy. Approximately how many beings of the Christ energy are in form at this time?”

S: That was a very well done question.

Christ, which comes from the Greek concept Christos, which was simply a label used as an explanation, perhaps, of adept or avatar, out of those eastern teachings at that time, was used as a label on the one Jesus of Galilee, son of Mary and Joseph, whom you recognize as the foundation point and master of Christianity. Christ, as that label, recognizes the full—and hear that; that’s important—the full completion of the initiatory path in the direction of this planet’s expression. Essentially, the Christ is the one who is the full expression of love made wisdom. Christ is—or the christed one, the mantle Christ, which has become for this time Christ consciousness and so forth—is those beings who are consciously working toward that full expression of love made wisdom. And to have the full awareness is very, very rare. On this planet there are many who are moving into Christ consciousness, and therefore, as you might sense these flowers from across the room, you’re in its smell. It doesn’t mean you actually have it yourself. There are many who have Christ consciousness. In relation to the idea of Christ having made His second return—second return; that’s not right, is it—second coming. Not yet. Not one fully embodying it. Not yet.

[Mary:] “Samuel, I have a couple of questions about channeling. First, when I channel information and it tells me to take action that will have an effect on others and the world about me, how do I know when to act on it and share it with others? Second, when do I know to share information I channel? Third, why do you teach and encourage channeling, and what, if any, application does it have in the mainstream world?”

S: All right. Start again. First.

[Mary:] “First, when I channel information that tells me to take action that will…”

S: “When I channel information that tells me to take action.” First, let’s start with the part that says, “When I channel information….” All right, who here channels? [Many hands go up.] Anybody who did not raise their hand should have. And it’s very important that you not get too caught up in the idea that if you’re going to channel then it means, first, you’ve got to do it this way. Believe me, it’s very rare and extremely inconvenient for both parties. Secondly, it is not the sort of work that’s going to make the most major changes in this world. And that’s why this sort of channeling is not happening.

Channeling is bridging. It is your ability to make contact with that which is greater than your awareness of what you’re about. Which means, now and again, the television channels to you, because something affects you and helps you grow. Now and again, the book you are reading channels to you. Now and again, you channel. You’re sitting there minding your own business, and you have a great thought—bing! labeled “Great Thought” right there—and it’s something that helps you better function in the world. That’s what it’s for. That’s the channeling that’s going to have the greatest effect.

You see, look about you, quickly. Now, if the form spent all of these years on her own with these teachings, there would be about four hundred of you in here, because you can accept the teachings much more easily from one like you. It’s pretty hard; you’ve got to be open; you’ve got to be willing, and you are here because your connections are on the inside. That’s rare in the world. Most individuals are connected on the outside. Therefore, to get a teaching from somebody is a lot easier than [from] some thing. That’s why this isn’t helpful. My work isn’t designed to change the world; it’s designed to motivate you to change the world. And it’s working.

So this form of channeling is rare, and rare for many reasons. It wears out the form. I said once, “We used [to use] idiots; now we make them.” Yet, you are constantly communicating with something. You constantly have the ability to communicate, and when you consciously choose to begin to learn more about your spirit self, you begin hearing voices—that still small voice—or you begin “getting” stuff, and you seek for ways for that to make sense. Channeling is a means to do that.

Channeling, as I teach it and as I encourage it—except for those few of you—and I mean few of you, who have the physical chemical ability to actually do this sort of thing—which certainly doesn’t mean you’re going to—when I speak channeling, almost without fail, I’m making reference to your learning to make contact with that which is within you so well that you know what is you and what is not you, that you know what it is when you make that contact.

The information that comes is for you. It’s for you. It’s for you. It’s for you to use, to make your life better. And then, when you’ve got that information, you can pull it into a form that perhaps you can give away to somebody else. It’s the usefulness factor that makes the difference.

You get something for Joy. Well, what I would tell you to do is to look into yourself and say, “What is it about Joy that I relate to? What is it I think of her? What is it I see going on with her? Because where that is in my life, that’s what this is about.”

I get weary of your messages to one another that come out more as, “Come do this for me, ‘cause Spirit said to. Here is how you should live your life.” Well if you’re not, then it’s probably not something you can give away. It’s probably a message for you.

So, when you get the information, look at your own self. Put it into action in your own life. Make it useful for you. Try it. Try the spirits. That’s the rule. To know if they’re of God or of your self and your own wild mind, undisciplined and uncentered as it very often is. Determine if it’s your want talking or your heart talking, and recognize—most important—recognize that Spirit doesn’t speak in words. I have no need for words, and when I’m speaking to you I don’t give you words. Most of our conversation, even when I’m using the form in this fashion, most of our connection isn’t this stuff [out of the mouth]. Because you’re getting on many levels. And you know it. Because the words are so limited to the concepts being passed that Spirit doesn’t do it. Furthermore, your mind may have a whole different translation of word, so that, when I say, “I love you,” you immediately come up with four lifetimes in which we had children together. That’s not love; that’s not what I’m talking about, nay.

And so, instead, what is given to you is that emotional wordless, full connection that is so clear that you can’t help but put words to it, because that’s the way your mind works, but Spirit didn’t give you those words, which is why, when you “get” something that you’re convinced was for Peggy because you heard it say, “This is for Peggy. Now, Peggy, clean your bathroom this week.”

[Peggy:] I didn’t know you cared.

S: One of the first things you need to do is look and determine what rubbish needs to be cleaned out of your own life, what waste you need to get rid of. And, in passing, you can say something to the effect of, “I had the most wonderful lesson come to me in your name. Thanks.” But don’t make it an imperative, all right?

Did that go through all of them?

[Mary:] Yes, I think so.

S: Good. Lecture over.

[Mary:] “Can the euphoria and enthusiasm generated by the recent American military triumph be directed into peaceful pursuits?”

S: It … can.

[Mary:] “Greetings, Samuel….”

S: Greetings.

[Mary:] “Iraq and Kuwait are now in shambles. The other Arab countries were politically split over the war. In this Year of Unity, how has this war led to unity among the Arabs? Was it supposed to?”

S: I believe that’s been covered.

[Mary:] “Samuel, because of the spectacular military success in driving Iraq from Kuwait, I fear the U.S. being quicker in the future to settle disagreements with force. This seems opposite to the path of peace. What is the greater plan that I’m not seeing here?”

S: I don’t disagree with what you’re seeing. Do you understand that? I don’t disagree with it. It’s part of the risk, and part of the need for your responsibility. When you know you’ve got a good thing, it might mean nobody messes with you.

[Mary:] “As I grow, I have incorporated learning to love myself in my practice of learning to love others. In loving myself, I find I have had to teach others how to treat me. Sometimes I’ve had to get very strict with setting limits on others.”

S: Feisty.

[Mary:] “It makes me feel bad to be so demanding. Any advice on how not to feel guilty when I demand a certain kind of treatment from others?”

S: All right, there is a difference between demanding a particular treatment and knowing how to get it without alienating everybody. That’s one of the things that very often gets in the way, you see. You demand what it doesn’t seem you deserve. In the retraining process, what you want to do is let your feelings be known and give an option for resolution, but you can’t make somebody make your choice, choose your way. “When that happens, makes me feel afraid, and when I feel afraid I get angry, and as a result I blow up like I did just then. And I don’t want to do that, because I know then that makes things a lot harder for us. If, instead, as soon as I do that action, you could say something instead of letting it get this far.”

That sounds fairly complicated, but essentially all you’re doing is stating this action has made me feel this. You are taking it off of the individual; you’re putting it on an action. “You idiot, you’re doing that again. Now cut that out. I just hate that, you … slimy scum ball.” Doesn’t do much, does it? The action, not the individual. The action makes me feel … tell how you’re feeling. You’re right, that makes you vulnerable. “Makes me feel, which causes this response. Let’s negotiate something else here.”

Retrain, don’t recreate. Do you understand the difference? All right.

[Mary:] “Is completion ever a positive activity?”

S: Is there a misprint there? Is completion ever not a positive activity? Completion is always a positive activity. All of the completions.

[Mary:] “What is the definition of enlightenment? Is there a specific physiology in this state? Please describe. How do meditation techniques influence the physiology?”

S: Mm, good. I believe that my definition of enlightenment might be the place in which you know you know, and you act on it in a consistent sacred fashion. Very often, that speaks of an individual at the stage of the fifth initiation, and the fifth initiation is that transitional transformation/transfiguration combination, because the fifth initiation is a passing point, not an end point. Because you have experienced the transformation of the third initiation on an outer level, you’re able to begin that change on an inner level. Physiologically, we speak of the things I have referred to as hoo-manity. And there’s much information you can get there that has already been said. Physiologically, however, certain things that you notice tend to have to do with your being in control. You start feeling ill, you make yourself well. You notice that you’re running out of energy, you get yourself some energy. It certainly is a time of no excuses.

Meditation allows your physical body the time it needs to create a vessel for the higher vibratory state of enlightenment. Meditation is the birthing room, the nest.

All right.

[Mary:] “What are triunities? What do they have to do with sex? What are their purposes for us?”

S: What time is it? [Laughter] All right. The form is going to be speaking—the form, not me—the form is going to be speaking on two subjects. One of them is relationships and the other one is sex, and in both of those triunities will be mentioned. Somebody tell her that, all right?

Furthermore, I have spoken quite a bit about triunities when I have given workshops on relationships, and so I won’t go into much detail, unless it is your wish to use that as a start next time we do questions and answers, or just for fun sometime. And then we can go into more details.

Actually, dualities only make one being. The more two people are together, the more they look alike, sound alike, act alike, the more integrated they become.

[end of tape] …for such a mess. You find that in everything, because triunities are found not only in personal relationships, but also in business relationships, in everything.

Triunity does not mean ménage a trois … does not … does not. Triunity is making reference to a relationship with three principles, because that means that when Patty and Susie and I are all together, Patty and I are in perfect agreement—we see things the very same way; we understand exactly how the world is going—and Susie says, “Wait a minute. You left this out,” allowing for a broader picture, a greater union, a stronger embrace.

Sexually speaking, triunities rarely involve a sexual relationship—very, very rarely. So it’s not likely to be something that’s within your scope to care about, but, again, I said it’s not a ménage a trois situation. And more often than not, it will mean that, if it was the original two principles, one of them is likely to move the sexual response to the third, which has to do with a whole different set of lessons.

And finally what was the last aspect, the purpose?

[Mary:] “What is their purpose for us?”

S: Again, as I said, it has to do with the ability to move beyond that duality that becomes single focus, to be able to open into a greater picture. And if you will look into your life now your strongest relationships come in threes: two parents and a child; a boss and a couple of coworkers that really function well together. You are likely to find that your strongest relationships are already in threes, and that’s because twos are limiting in a way that isn’t going to function in this world for much longer.

Aye. It’s good work here.

[Mary:] It’s not easy.

S: Nay, it’s not. Whenever I put somebody up here they get such an appreciation for Martin. He likes that.

Questions and answers are a gift you give me. And when you’re awake, we usually get to play, and you answer more of the questions, and you get to see how much you know, and I get to have a feel for where to direct my teachings for the next few months. Based on tonight, I should think it would all be the Middle East.

You’re a good fun group. Now let me ask you a question. I want to make this setup better. It doesn’t work. You’re too far from me, and you’re not in a setup that allows you to best gain from me. What could be done to make this better? What could make this room setup better? What would have been easier for you?

[…] Give us more [room]

S: Nay. The center works, and the way the energy flows in here this becomes the center of the spiral, but there must be a better way to actually do the physical setup.

Don’t spread out so far on the side. Limit it on both sides, so that we’re in front of you.

You could be back farther, and everybody could move in more [to the center], so that you could have eye contact with everyone. Everybody wouldn’t be [spread] out like this.

It could be more of a horseshoe, because now we’re all facing the wall rather than each other, and a horseshoe would bring the group more into a circle.

S: Good ideas. Any more? Good, see. You’re creating answers, also.

This is a very important month. Pay attention to what goes on with you. For those who are awake, one of the things you’re going to be finding is that you’re going to be feeling agitated, slightly on the verge of anger. Not a pleasant thought, eh? And you’re going to be feeling that agitation essentially because this a month in which, both in the focus of the light about the planet as well as group consciousness, there is a lot of movement. You have the equinox; you have a Wesak coming up very quickly.

Jupiter and Saturn are in opposition.

S: Jupiter and Saturn are in opposition.

You are going to be finding that you’re having difficulties with authority, and you’re also going to be feeling a very strong need to pull into your shell. Resist, my darlings, resist. The action that you need to take is a conscious outpouring of love throughout this month. It’s creative energy; it’s giving, flowing energy. But the world is putting out a collective [sigh] right now, so there’s not a strong move for action, and it’s coming across as a stoppage. You’re feeling on a plateau; you’re feeling like your beating your head against a wall. It’s going to be a very trying month, and again that’s because you’re awake—you’re awake enough to feel these things. It’s going to be the sort of month that makes you say, “Wasn’t it nice when we didn’t know this stuff?”

The way to combat this is to combat it. Your awareness changes things, and you have that power; you must use it. Choose love; consciously choose love. Use your mind; consciously use your mind. Stay aware; stay awake. Stay happy. Have fun. Play. Lead your life the way you want your life to be.

When I see you just after the middle of this month, I don’t want you to be ragged soldiers. “Made it so far!” That’s not necessary.

So, stay alert. The world needs more lerts.

Happy trails, my souls. Glochanumora.
