External evidences are no longer necessary for those who question.
Foresights are accepted, yet claims are delayed.
Promissory stances clear from those of lower mindsets.
Handicaps are removed.
Peace tomes are read.
Interpretations: “External evidences are no longer necessary for those who question.” – Here is a rather interesting statement that seems to imply one needs not seek for confirmation or validation for questions they have. The phrase external evidences are no longer necessary implies a process by which an individual will look outside of themselves to confirm an inner supposition, theory, or knowing. For example, if you wake up in the morning and you receive an intuitive message that says “it is raining outside” you might look out the window for confirmation—an example of external evidence. Generally speaking, confirmation of one’s beliefs, suspicions, contentions, conclusions, biases and so on is a very good idea. After all, in manifesting our desires, we need accurate information. Cooking a meal with the wrong ingredients won’t produce the effect you want. But is this what this statement is actually saying? Is it suggest that confirmation of truth is no longer necessary using external means? I think there is more nuance here.
“Foresights are accepted, yet claims are delayed.” – The prefix fore refers to things that come before; a forewarning is a prophetic statement of what is to come. A foresight would be a vision of the future. The phrase foresights are accepted can be interpreted to mean that visions of the future are accepted, acknowledged as potentially being of value. This statement implies that this was not the case in the past, suggesting that people were receiving foresights but were dismissing them. Consider that most people assume the seemingly random thoughts they have on a daily basis are meaningless. But if one considers that these thoughts have meaning, then they will begin to seek for that meaning, which might lead to a moment wherein precognition is recognized. For example, you might think of a friend moments before they call you on the phone—acknowledging this thought as a precognition would be an example of accepting foresights. The second phrase in this statement is a bit more enigmatic.
“Promissory stances clear from those of lower mindsets.” – A promise is a statement or declaration that an individual will do something or that something will happen. Promises, in the past, were more akin to consent—specific only to the individual and what they can do—but have now also become claims of fact related to reality. For example, someone can promise that an event will happen that they have no actual control over, like a parent promising a child that they will enjoy some activity—the parent can’t make that statement in truth because they can’t control the child’s subjective experience. In this sense, the notion of a promise the idea of pledging oneself to something has fallen out of balance and become deluted—people are making all sorts of promises they can’t really live up to or aren’t capable of controlling. But why would this be the case?
“Handicaps are removed.” – Given the preceding interpretation related to separation consciousness as the foundation of all social problems, this statement can be interpreted to mean that this block is being removed. A handicap is a circumstance that makes a situation more difficult, like missing a leg would make walking more challenging. In most cases, dealing with a handicap can impart wisdom and greater skill—evolutionary improvements in being. But if the individual is unable to rise above the challenges provided to them in experience, removal is required to move forward. Stagnation is a condition of lack of growth or movement. Separation consciousness is one handicap that is both laden with potential for growth but also a hindrance to further development.
“Peace tomes are read.” – A tome is a large and heavy scholarly book, usually one that is intimidating but also dense or replete with information. The statement peace tomes are suggestive of a repository of knowledge relating to peace. Given the preceding statements in this update related to developing an internal process of learning, precognitions, removal of blockages, and clearing of lower mind states, this statement can be interpreted as a culmination. When we’ve recognized that the source of all knowledge is in our hands, when we acknowledge the wisdom pouring through the mind as insight, and we set aside shallowness for love and altruism, we begin to read from the tomes of peace. This suggests that doing this inner work to gain wisdom is a method of training oneself to become a peaceful person. Given that war, suffering, and trauma are products of close-mindedness and separation consciousness, restoring unity consciousness is arguably the most important thing we can do as individuals to change the world for the better. Society is made of individuals, but those who seek to change the world instead of themselves will reach for war instead of peace as a solution. Peace comes from within, developed by becoming the master of our own house and captain of our own ship, finally able to recognize the wisdom of the love of truth.
PS – In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn’t sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.
