< Ascension 2QA > The other things that you mentioned here… it depends on how you use them in the first place. Alcohol is a great way, a great way, of running from fear, you know. It is a great way of becoming stronger than the fear monster for a short period of time. You grow faster than he does, but you know, as some of you here do, the next day… oh, he is mad! (audience laughter) He comes back. However, if taken with the proper intent, the proper approach, dear friends, these things are fine. It depends on why these things pass through your lips in the first place. I, Tobias, was known for enjoying a glass or so of wine. (teasing) And I do have to say… I do have to tell Cauldre that this story that has been written about me is not so true. It has been written that I would never drink more wine than one glass for each guest that was at my dinner table. And Cauldre has been spreading the rumor that I had many guests for dinner every night of the week. I did indeed enjoy the wine. I did find it to be relaxing, and I realized it was one of life's many good things.
< Embodiment 6 > We are going to you ask you now to get over it (holdback of the past). Get over it. It was part of who you are. It was an experience you wanted to have to help you learn and understand something. It was a mighty challenge that you had given yourself so that you could learn something new. Some of you get down upon yourselves. Some of you who have drunk a little bit too much… you call yourselves alcoholics. Get over it. You are not an alcoholic. You are one who went to the depths of hell drinking to find out what that is about. But, the energy does not have to be attached to you anymore. That was the past.
Embodiment 10QA > Indeed… any of you who have come from a family
have a curse (audience laughter). Indeed there is an element that we spoke of
recently and that you have this. You not only have your
own past life karma - and karma simply means an energetic type of influence
or balance - but you do definitely have a type of ancestral
karma. In your case, in particular, there are some very - what you would
call - very dramatic, wicked, and violent energies that are associated here.
And, there are some - what you would say - some very deep, dark secrets. And,
they influence you because they race through the DNA.
As we spoke of recently in our gathering in the "mecca" of the Midwest, Minneapolis, that there are certain attributes in particular that flow very easily through the bloodline. Diabetes is one. Alcoholism is another. Many physical attributes that are passed down through the DNA… some do not pass as easily as others. But, when there is - what you would say - dark ritual combined with torture and combined with death, as in the case that you are speaking about in your family tree, then it does have an influence. And, it flows down.
< Clarity 4 > Alcohol and drugs… they can serve you. They can feed you. Oh, it's not just about getting drunk, or taking a trip, being doped up. There is another energy that comes in when you use alcohol or the drugs. It is not just about the high that you get at that time. That is only what you think it is. Something else is happening there. You're feeding yourself somehow. What is it? Is it that you are feeding yourself an escape energy, or perhaps a relaxation energy? Are you feeding yourself a way to expand your consciousness? Or, are you feeding yourself a way to collapse your consciousness, or perhaps deny it? You have to answer that for yourself. We can't answer that for you. But, somehow you're getting fed on it.
< (Next) 7 > Alcohol, sex, these are triggers that start right there (pleasure center) and then go into your brain, and then you say, "I'm addicted, therefore, I'm flawed, therefore I have to keep suffering until I get stronger or better. I need to go out and find some savior or messiah. How could I possibly be God also because I smoke cigarettes?!" Get over it. I've known a lot of really good drunk Ascended Masters. (laughter) But you burden yourself with this guilt, "There's something wrong. I'm a pervert," not me, but you. "I'm a pervert. I eat too much. I eat too little." This was all part of the programming, therefore, you're not free; therefore, you buy into all that crap, and it's so easy to let it go.
