To participant: We think there's some transitional chaos in your wanting to help the homeless. What you really want is to live in a world where there is no homelessness. What you're going for is the positive—everybody has a right to have shelter, and the universe wants to care for everyone. To go from a dysfunctional culture to a functional culture, you need new paradigms, a new story of who you are and what you're doing.
There are those whose calling is to help meet the immediate needs of people in the transition. And then there are those whose life purpose is to envision a world with different values, and create structural economic and shelter systems for a society where there's no question—of course everyone's going to have a home.
To get from this old parallel to where your gifts can best be used is a huge jump, and this will look like a series of small steps. Now, whether starting a homeless shelter like you've been talking about is the best step on the way there is the question.
Teaching the homeless about the leap is the main thing.
As with an alcoholic who has to hit bottom, things might have to fall apart before you can put together a new form. To discern what needs to fall apart is hard when you're not one who is here to explore chaos to its bitter end. For some people that exploration is fulfilling—both for those whom you might normally expect, like military heads and leaders of immoral corporations, but also for many homeless people. A hidden strength is evoked in some when they're faced with a situation that finally seems real. When you're not making it in the culture, you no longer buy into it, and many homeless seem more clear and discerning than most people lost in the haze of cultural values. Some may look back on that time as when they felt really alive, ironically.
So it's hard to say what needs to change, and what's just perfect. But if this is close to your heart, there are sixteen people we could identify as we look out that would be on the same page of wanting not just to have a place to live, but to learn about community and envisioning a new world. That's all you need. Then you let go of everybody else, and assume they're getting what they need in their own way.
You came in as a very sensitive soul to this parallel version that has never really suited you, always having a sense that there's a better way somewhere where you'd feel much more at home. We're not sure you would be that much help on the old parallel if you were going to stay and help out, because you're not really committed to it in your heart. It just doesn't make sense. It's like "if I don't get to help choose the going paradigms, then why should I have to help clean up the mess? I didn't help make the mess." Whereas some people helped engineer the mess, and are really fascinated with it. For them there's a lot to be gleaned from looking at "if we take this paradigm to its full expression, what's that gonna look like?"
But we think that you've done what you needed to do on the old parallel, and are ready to hardly look back. There are quite a few people feeling a detachment from the old parallel. They may not want to leave everyone they love behind, but other than that, it's not that interesting. Others who are contemplating the leap won't leap terribly far because they are pretty attached to the old, and that may be perfect for them. It's not like they need to be pushed to leap farther. It's not better or worse one way or the other.
Part of your sympathy for the homeless may be that homelessness symbolizes no longer being held by something that doesn't fit your experience. You are homeless in a way, because the whole mass consciousness on this parallel that you're in no longer houses you. We think the vulnerability of the people on the street is similar to the vulnerability you may be feeling that the old no longer fits you, but you don't have the new yet. You feel a rawness, an openness to the elements. It's hard to house yourself in the concept of a leap, because that in itself implies total transformation. There's nothing to hang onto there, because you know you're going to be a different person at the end of the leap than you are going into it, and so that's really homelessness. So to reach out to homeless people is to reach out to other people who feel the same way you do, whether you have a home or not.
We've talked about being guides to people who are on the denser parallels. We've told Cathee and Peter that people on five different parallels can read their website, and to not put dates on it, because we can actually send it back in time. So imagine putting up a website, and looking at the statistics today, and you see a thousand people came to your website this month. And then tomorrow you see only a hundred people came to your website this month. It's like you're reading the statistics for different parallels. And so it's a little tricky to even come up with the message. Different messages will fit different parallels, because very different things will happen on different parallels. On one there might be an immense amount of homelessness, and society really has to wrestle with it and do something about it, and on another parallel not much is moving ahead with the issue. But you're on a parallel where you're fine, and yet you're trying to see where what you have to offer can best help people on different parallels. It's incredibly complex. And you yourself can get sucked back in if you read the news too much, and start to feel despair again.
There's a different feel to the compassion when you really, in your heart, know you're going to be OK, not affected by the problems you see. If you feel in your gut that you're going to be fine, that feeling of lightness and expansion feels great. Does that mean you're not feeling compassion for the people who are suffering back on the other parallel? Are you afraid you'll lose your capacity to have compassion? Will you forget about them? Is it OK to move on? How do you know how much to stay in there with them?
You may be feeling more and more the flip side of what you may have experienced earlier in your life. How many times has Cathee said to us, "You don't seem to understand the level of suffering down here and what it's like to be incarnate." And actually, we've told you that we think the incarnates are the wise ones, the really brave souls.
But we do think that within an experience of joy or of great suffering, there is an aspect of awareness that hums through any circumstance. It's the matrix of how you even have an experience. If we set aside what the experience is, and look at the mechanics of how you have an experience, how does that work that the people who are suffering are suffering? How does experience come into being? And the same for joy, or peace, or higher dimensional reality and lower dimensional reality—how does the whole game work? We Leapers are very involved with the matrix that holds everybody's experiences. We're committed to helping people have the support they need to have whatever experience they need to have, and we don't have a lot of value judgment on what that is.
We will probably push you more and more to be with us, so that you develop a quality of listening. Someone may be talking about their homelessness. What you can do is not think the homelessness is necessarily bad, so let's get them out of there. Or that the homelessness seems to be serving them well. It's, how can I hold a level of awareness of how this game works, so that someone can wake up to the whole way it's put together?
In the center of all experience is a very real love—even in the center of war experiences. There's something in the matrix that holds it all together, that enables everything to happen. Nature, of course, holds the stage for all experience to happen. Is that stage itself loving? We would say yes, the matrix itself is compassionate, no matter what experiences that matrix is being molded to house.
Our soul family is geared towards holding the matrix, being the background rather than the foreground. And when you do that, you are holding a matrix of compassion, whether you're even feeling it much or not for a particular person.
We're not saying it's not good to provide physical shelter for people. But we think it's quite a rare gift to be able to see into incarnation and de-incarnation—to see how things come into being and dissolve out of being—and how they coagulate around paradigms. The more you in your own experience with us get pretty fluid in form, you become fluid in what you're able to handle.
There have been times in Cathee's life where she's been angry with us for what's been happening. "Why is this society so bad, why is this culture so ignorant, why is this Earth in such a mess, and why am I here in this mess?" And of course, we're offering the leap out. But if we had bought into "poor you," that would have made her even more stuck there. Whereas when we say look, you can be leapt, you can jump to a place where you're not in that mess—that is compassion. But it can feel almost heartless. There are many people who have suffered without there being a lot of meaning in their suffering. We've said many times that many lightworkers came in thinking they could turn things around, and instead they got stuck in the suffering. But to say "my suffering was really a waste, and therefore I'm just gonna leap out of it" is harder for many people than to stay in it and still try to find something that made it worth living through.
A Viet Nam vet has been talking to us through Cathee. He went through horrible experiences in the war, and he's still dealing with severe symptoms from that trauma. We've told him that it really wasn't his life contract to be in that situation. He chose to do it out of love for some people he wanted to help, but it wasn't his soul purpose, and he has not learned much from it or benefitted from the anxiety, sleeplessness, aggressiveness and other post-traumatic stress problems. We've offered to leap him to merge into another parallel where he was discharged from the army and never experienced combat. And we told him that that parallel was the stronger of his parallels in terms of soul purpose. We think it was harder for him to hear that his suffering was meaningless but that we could leap him to where he'd be healthy and happy again, than if we had told him he'd be stuck with ill health the rest of his life but that it was meaningful. To accept that a lot of what you've been through doesn't have much meaning can be difficult.
So we bring both good news and bad news, you might say. It can be hard for people to decide they'd rather give up trying to make the old work, and just go to a whole different paradigm.
Many are trying within this cultural set of paradigms to learn to play the game better. For instance, you can tweak the economic system so that people can buy homes again. But we think a lot of people are at the point of saying you can't win in this paradigm. Even if you manage to keep employed and not starve, we think there's widespread disillusionment in that you all know you're participating in such a corrupt system that winning is not really winning. It's surviving, but it's not reaching a level of well-being. If you're surrounded by such corruption, can you really relax and develop the gifts that you could in a more nurturing environment? So we're trying to come up with a way of taking very seriously the extreme disillusionment we see around. It's not just a matter of helping people sell more products to pull their life together, but recognizing that what is needed to pull people out of their dismay is something extreme and radical. And if people want something extreme and radical, the universe loves you enough to give it to you.
Now, obviously there have been extreme times of disillusionment historically. There's been a continual stream of genocide experiments in recent centuries. But this really is a new time when it's possible to bring in radical change. The human evolutionary cycle is such that now it's time to leap—to have a huge discontinuity with what's been happening and jump to whole new level of understanding and consciousness. We think it's true that if you change your beliefs, worldview and expectations, then you're going to end up on a better parallel. You're going to co-create that. We're just saying, we think a lot of people need an extra boost, and are ready to jump way out of the frying pan to something very different than they could get to by themselves.
I'm studying a social movement that is moving people towards an empathic society, where everybody's talents are valued, and basic needs for shelter and food are guaranteed.
In the majority of parallel versions of Earth, what you're describing is taken for granted—that we all benefit if we all value everybody. In the majority of parallel versions of Earth, it's taken for granted that everyone's talents are valued and basic needs for shelter and food are guaranteed. We find it remarkable that this concept sounds like such a huge vision, and such a stretch to get to on your parallel version. We see in many societies on other parallels which start from there, that where people can go in their interests, talents and development is exponentially beyond the highest you can get to here in terms of fulfillment. Here it's become a big goal to even have a decent place for everyone to live. And so it's much harder to develop more creatively beyond that into whatever you're interested in—arts, technologies, science, philosophy, or things that we don't have words for. You can spend the rest of your life trying to pull this parallel towards that, and you may have some success in various pockets. But you have far more creativity and talent that we would love to see you develop than just how to bring a decrepit society up to a decent level that the rest of the parallel universes take for granted as the lowest common denominator. "Of course, everybody has talents and value and purpose. Of course, we're gonna give everybody shelter and food. Of course."
You've got to think vertically, not just horizontally. It's creating miracles. It's saying, if I go into the heart of how things are created, I can radically re-create things—or be re-created, basically. We'll help re-create you. You're oddly enough at a place where what we're saying—that we can shift you to where you'll be living on a parallel with different paradigms—may be more believable as possible than to think that the old paradigm can work out. Really, the old working out seems less feasible, even though what we're talking about is miraculous. We're saying that we can shift the whole vibration you're living in.
There are an infinite number of parallels, each with its own independent existence. I can open this door or that door. How do I change this consciousness that I'm in to be in the consciousness of the other parallel, wherever that is?
You ask us to shift you.
I don't do it myself?
What we're espousing is not a philosophy. It's saying, we can do it because we helped create you the way you are, on this one. That's what's so hard—it's so simple. We need you to interact with us to know what you most value, and where you would like to end up. We look for communities on other parallels that can use your gifts. And then you just say, "I'm ready, please leap me." It takes tremendous trust. And it takes a flexibility of selfhood to go through drastic changes and let old subpersonalities die, and be transformed to where you can handle the vibration of a new parallel.
If people from the parallel you will eventually end up on were to walk into this room and sit on the couch, you'd probably be very uncomfortable with them. They'd be radiant and almost childlike, excited about things—not limited in holding their energy in like you all tend to do here. Just really different. So how do you become one of them? We rearrange the things in you that are keeping you from being that. And we can do it if you give your permission and ask us to. But we know it takes tremendous trust.
That trust has to come from really believing that the universe is good and does want your highest good, and having faith that good things can happen. It's a playfulness. It's a willingness to play with the substance of reality, even to the point of playing with your own self, to be remodeled. People are very creative with canvas and paint, with building businesses, with building relationships. But this is to be playful even with renovating yourself at the deepest level, so that you can vibrate at a different place to where you can vibrate on a different parallel.
Nature holds the substance of everything. There's a fallacy that's common that you create your own reality with your own thoughts and feelings, and the truth is that you co-create your reality with the substance of reality. Nature is becoming much stronger now in its consciousness and in its strength. And so it is able to co-create with you in a way that its essence is in the new creation of where you come out. You fall in love with us, and we both pop out in the new parallel. And you've affected us, and we've affected you, and there we are in the new. But it comes from really falling in love. So it's not for everybody at all. But there are millions of people we feel are ripe and ready.
