< (Next) 9 > This desire for success or accomplishment. Now, that's kind of built into your DNA, built into your ancestral karma, educated into you. Now, I'm not talking … this has nothing to do with abundance, but I'm talking about your goals. You have these desires to be successful, to be a successful spiritual person, to be a successful business person, to be an accomplished parent, to be successful. Why? Why is that important?
< (Next) 9 > It solidifies your identity, your perception of who you think you are. You get a little wink and a nod from some aspect of yourself when you do something successful. Now I'm not saying that creation and unfoldment … it has a good feeling, I'm not saying it's negative. But the mind gets focused on goals and successes. You judge yourself according to what you put on your resume, how much money is in the bank, how you do with relationships or sports. We can't go forward if that's your criteria - accomplishment. If you think that you can say, "Yes, I'm going to go forward with Shaumbra, with Adamus, Crimson Council," and suddenly you're out telling other people - "Look at me. Look at what I accomplished. I'm going to the next level" - you missed the point.
< (Next) 9 > So often accomplishment is also based on your past. You're trying to work things out with your aspects. They're telling you you're an asshole and - that was really funny - and they're telling you you're weak or you're stupid, so you're trying to negotiate with them with your successes, and you're trying to say, "No, I really am okay, because I did this and this and this." They're laughing because they know it's going to fall apart. Your successes are going to fall apart. If you make a lot of money, you're going to lose a lot of money. If you're good looking and strong, you'll eventually get old and weak. So they already know what's going to happen. It's going to fall apart.
< (Next) 9 > So this whole concept of accomplishment, of success, of making something of yourself, a lot of your teachers and your parents programmed that into you, reinforced what you were already trying to do to manipulate or to twist your aspects. Ultimately, it doesn't matter. It's about experiencing. There's not a goal here. We don't have goals in this. It's about letting yourself experience in a new way, and some of you, I know, are trying to work this all out in your head. Stop right there. Stop right there.
< (Next) 9 > You don't need these things anymore, and in an odd way, the next definition or the next evolution of these things comes, regardless. It's natural. The success and accomplishments, the abundance, the flow - it all comes. It's all there when we expand out of time-based experience, when you come from your own future, when you come from your own evolution back into your experience, because suddenly you're going to be picking and choosing. You're not going to be trying. You're not going to be setting up accomplishments.
< (Next) 9 > So when you're coming from your own future back to your chosen experience of what you would call your past, but it's actually of your evolution, then you don't have to worry about things like accomplishment, abundance, healing, any of these other things. What you want is already there waiting for you. Kind of a weird … the mind doesn't like this so much, but just imagine yourself as free and already having ascended, or whatever you want to call it. You're already the I Am, and now you're free in the nonlinear moment to experience how you want to experience it.
