Q: I think part of my current feelings of being stuck relates to being frustrated that I know how “it is supposed to be” with myself and the world, but realizing neither I nor the world is there yet gets me down. And the thought of having to repeat continuously, well, YIKES. The thing that keeps me “going” is my attempts at surrender and acceptance of what just is. WR (I believe) teaches reincarnation isn’t forever once a person is enlightened. It seems to me after this lifetime that you are “finished” with this reality of non-reality. Do you ever have longings about not ever returning?
A: There is nothing wrong, or sinful about manifesting a body of unreality; if that were the case, God would not create any kind of elements to work with. What is incorrect thinking is to correlate the reality and identity of the shared Self of God with the unrealities of perception that are leveraged from the reality of the fulcrum of the Self.
The play is eternal; the elements that make up the body never die – they are what forever repeat and can be worked with as desired. Idea, and desire to embody idea, is eternal. One is forever using the elements created by God to simulate a framework for developing desired abilities. What isn’t eternal is the belief that one is slave to the elements vs. master of them. What isn’t eternal are the emotions that are seemingly attached to polarization and depolarization for re-polarization of the elements and the transforming compilations of them that simulate the ideas backing their use. Emotions are truly only a problem if they are given power over the still, unchanging and eternal fulcrum of Self-control. One with the fulcrum, only ecstasy is known of the interchanging lights of polarization and depolarization.
One ceases being an unknowing actor in the play by becoming a knowing one. Transformation from an unknowing actor to a knowing one happens by those “ah-ha” moments and/or in a timeless flash; realization is not subject to polarization or depolarization of the current body. The concept of returning is purely theoretical as one never leaves, nor returns, to the fulcrum.
One says, “Yikes!” to the thought of repeating the same unknowing errors, “Hallelujah!” to the knowledge that undoes those errors by their desired transformation. The gaining of knowledge is innate to evolution as mankind desires to know and work with Source. The initial impetus towards gaining this knowledge may seem to take a good deal of effort, but then inertia, the multiplied desire of will of the Self, takes over.
“Until man becomes the fulcrum of his Self, through Cosmic knowing he is but an extension of the fulcrum which moves the universe but when his Self becomes the fulcrum of his Self through knowing the Light of universal Self, he then moves the universe.” (Walter Russell, part 12)
Mankind in general is just passing the point of this great effort, and the momentum of inertia is about to kick in. By the realization of Self-power and the application of it, one does indeed become, as you say, “finished with the reality of non-reality”. And yet the body will continue, transformed by desire for new and improved abilities and ecstatically under the control of the will of desire in Mind.
As one comes to live in the “Godhead” and to apply the knowledge in Mind, one with the fulcrum of power that the Self is, one manifests desired abilities by directing the thought levers of movement at will. Knowing how to simulate ideas with bodies without giving identity and reality to them (and therefore without seeming to be an emotional subject of the “life” and “death” of those bodies) is the climax of the play and the end of the unknowing actor. The realization plus application of the power of working with universal law vs. against it ends the seeming entrapment by the “forgetful flesh” and destroys the belief systems that went along with the ignorance of how power works. It is well to accept that mankind is not yet at the period of inertia and to have patience.
As the fulcrum of the universal body is Self-realized and this realization is applied, memory of realization and application of realized knowledge remains intact; there is no longer any of the amnesia of “unknowing”. One knows exactly how the body came to be as it seems, and how to transform the seeming as desired. Repetition of a body continues because desire is ever present within the fulcrum to embody idea — the desire to create is eternal. And yet, embodiment becomes under the Self-control of the knowledge of Oneness with God the Creator of universal law vs. remaining under the spell of seeming separation. It is the sense of separation from the fulcrum of power and control that inspires the “yikes”. It is knowledge of union that inspires the “hallelujahs”. Therefore, forever seek to bring knowledge to the forefront of Mind and to apply it. Please read Walter and Lao Russell’s 12 part home study course to that end. After you have read it once, go through the entire thing again. I printed off all the parts and organized them into binders. I read nightly before I go to bed.
No one wants to return to the way things seemed to be prior to the realization that the body manifests and de-manifests to re-manifest under universal law out of desire for it to do so, and that it’s expression is under knowing Self-control. No one wants to return to being slave to matter once matter has been mastered. The fear of being slave to repetition of the way things seem to be while under the spell of separation is only present while the mechanics of reincarnation are theoretical. Once those mechanics are innately realized, and one begins to work knowingly with them instead of unwittingly against them, the glorious truth of knowledgeable reincarnation eradicates the fear. Little by little, or in the blink of an eye, as you go through the course, this knowledge will come to you as your own.
99.9% of us are seemingly born into the flesh unknowing, but we all reach the end of the unknowing acting wherein each and every one of us knows we are the one and only Supreme Person acting as desired, and that our seeming to be individual personal bodies are extensions from the one point that expresses the entirety of desire for the body (which is one in the same as God’s body). Everything one learns is carried forth; it is refolded into one’s seed pattern. Nothing is ever lost. The “speed” at which one reaches the end of the play to be in control of re-patterning the seed is the measure of desire to seek, know, and be God.
The longing to never have to return disappears as one leaves the concept of existence without creation behind, and follows through with the completion of desired conceptions.
