I did the Morning Offering and then got myself ready for the day. Today the Q’uo quote comes from September 17, 1989:
I am Q’uo, and greet each again in love and light through this instrument. At this time, if we have not overstayed our welcome, we would offer ourselves in the attempt to speak to any further queries which those present may have for us. Is there a query at this time?
I am Q’uo, and am aware of your query, my sister. It is indeed true that for each seeker that attempts to live a conscious life that this entity must begin with what is, whether that be within the self, within other selves or within the environment in which one lives the daily round of activity. This process of accepting that which is, whether it be easy or difficult, is a process of, in one sense, becoming able to appreciate each facet of the Creator that is revealed to you and to build upon this appreciation so that it becomes more natural to give praise and thanksgiving for all one’s experiences. For, within the attitude of praise and thanksgiving, one smoothes the journey, shall we say.
This ability to accept that which is unacceptable is not easily won within your illusion, for there is much that is not as you would have it be. You, each of you, you seek for those qualities of unconditional love, of clearly illuminated wisdom and for the power to be of service to others. It is well to look at those qualities that are unacceptable, wherever they are found, and to see them as some aspect of the self, whether they are obviously of the self, or of other selves, or of your environment.
To look upon that which is unacceptable and upon that which is acceptable as portions of the self, or aspects of some portion of the self, begins to put the focus where it must needs be placed. For the perception which one has in viewing the world, the self and other selves, is a perception which has been constructed internally and, in most cases, on a subconscious level, having origins in pre-incarnative choices so that certain opportunities would be presented to the self according to the way in which the self would see or experience the incarnation.
Thus, when one begins to appreciate one’s experience as being that which is completely internal, one then has the metaphysical feet, shall we say, upon firm ground and may begin to see not only that which is not yet acceptable but begin to see beyond the surface of that which is not acceptable so that there is not so much the reaction, or, shall we say, the knee-jerk reaction against that which is unacceptable, but there is the investigation of those qualities so that one may begin to understand their origins, their nature, their ramifications and their purpose within the being.
As this investigation is continued, it will be noted by the conscientious seeker that there is a certain freeing of the perceptions and the self that occurs when the truer nature of these distortions becomes known. It is well said that if one knows the truth the truth shall set one free. The careful investigation of those qualities which are unacceptable will eventually take one beyond the mere inability to accept certain qualities and will take one to those levels of the self which may be expressing in certain ways in order to attract the attention and allow a movement in the perception, in the consciousness, in a certain way that is indicated by the study of those portions of the self which are seen to be as unacceptable.
This new direction is that movement which has been planned, shall we say, pre-incarnatively and which offers to the entity the opportunity for releasing certain abilities, services and opportunities to grow that would not be possible without the biases and distortions that were first seen as unacceptable. That they are eventually seen is the hope that was born at the time of the incarnation so that these signposts, shall we say, would eventually lead the seeker in a manner which will yield the enhancement, the widening, the enrichment of not only the perceptions but of the small self which moves toward a union with the greater Self.
Questioner’s question was inaudible, but by looking at Q’uo’s answer it seems that the question was how the spiritual seeker can deal with those portions of the self that seem unacceptable. Q’uo began their answer by saying that each seeker needs to be able to accept the nature of the self, the nature of an other self, or the nature of the daily round of activities as facets of the Creator that we should give praise and thanksgiving for. Q’uo said that eventually we would be able to see beyond that which is not acceptable and discover that these qualities are internal and were created subconsciously as pre-incarnative choices which we can use and then release to become more able to seek the union of our small self with the greater Self. On July 16, 1989, Q’uo described the value of being able to accept the unacceptable:
We are building, shall we say, the skyscraper that is based upon the firm foundation you now are laying, the foundation of accepting the unacceptable, of loving the unlovable, of changing the insult into the light touch. You have the control to make these choices at will. Each of you has this within, but how difficult, my friends, it is to call upon it. As always, we move to the suggestion of persistent daily meditation, the listening within, the learning of who you really are, the centering of oneself within the creation, so that no thing is strange and no one a stranger. Nothing threatens, but only challenges.
Try to make your decisions for love with all the passion within your heart, with all the caring in your spirit, for the depth of your commitment to the positive path of service to others in the service of the one infinite Creator will be the measure of the amount of light that you may use and enjoy when this incarnation is at an end.
Is there a further query, my sister?
Questioner: No, and I thank you.
I am Q’uo, and we thank you. Is there another query?
I am Q’uo, and we are most grateful to have been invited to join your circle of seeking this evening, and again we apologize for speaking in a manner which is overly lengthy for most of your entities to appreciate. We so enjoy the opportunity to address those areas of your concern that we give too little thought, we fear, to your comfort, and we shall endeavor to be more brief in your future as you measure time.
At this time we shall again thank each for this joyful opportunity of sharing that which we have found to be helpful in our own journey of seeking and shall take our leave of this group, leaving each, as always, in the love and in the light of the one infinite Creator. We are known to you as those of Q’uo. Adonai, my friends. Adonai.
This morning I made an errand run with my first stop being at the First Baptist Church to leave a bag of groceries in their food bin outside of the church. My next stop was at PNC Bank to make a cash withdrawal. My third stop was at AutoZone to buy more 50:1 2 cycle engine oil. My last stop was at Paul’s Fruit Market to buy some food for myself.
This afternoon I went outside and pulled up the last of the dead flowers on the Ruins Mound and the flower garden inside of the Moss Garden. Then I went inside and used the carpet sweeper, broom and dust pan, plus the dust mop to clean the second floor of the house where Benny lives.
From A Book of Days, channeled by Carla L. Rueckert:
I am the principle of divine consciousness and I greet you in the love of Jesus the Christ.
You gaze at the day with eyes askance and skate about upon the surface of your consciousness as though moving your hand across the skin of an orange. Yet deep inside you, you ache with loneliness because you have not sought to live within the depth of the present moment of life. You have not acknowledged your nature.
Peel back, then, that thick skin of happenstance which is the continuum of your day and see your true nature in the seeds of Godhead nestled within the meat of your humanity. For the Creator has made you in His image, and, as you are consciousness, just so this consciousness cannot be anything other than the Creator.
May you search for and touch the seeds of your inner essence this day and each day. Thus shall surface activity resonate with inner meaning. Love and the consciousness of love bless all circumstance.
We leave you in the comfort of joy and the perfect peace of love, now and always. Amen.
I said the prayer at the Gaia Meditation tonight:
We come in the name of love and open our hearts, minds, and souls to send love, light, and healing energy to Mother Earth as she brings forth a new Earth in the fourth density. We ask that the infinite love, light and healing energy of the One Infinite Creator heal the hearts of all souls in pain on Earth tonight. May all souls on Earth feel our love, light, and healing energy in their hearts, their minds, and their souls. Amen.
