Siddhartha; Gautama;

< Creator 1QA > It is, my dear, a good example for you. Literally and metaphorically it is a good example of this situation that we talk of, that of accepting. Siddhartha is on his own path. It is time for you to recognize that. There is more to this than appears in the words that we speak. It is time for you to accept the path that Siddhartha walks. But this is an excellent question.

< Creator 12 > Some 2,500 years ago it became appropriate to begin bringing more of this consciousness to Earth, to your reality, to your 3D. At that time there were families of angels who chose to come in to help facilitate this process. There were individuals who received notoriety for this. There was the one who is called Buddha - Siddhartha - who came in with many, many others. It was not just the Buddha who brought in the consciousness. It was all who came in at that time and the surrounding times.

< Creator 12QA > Dear friends, we will speak more of this tomorrow when we gather again, but we will answer in part tonight. 2500 years ago and 2000 years ago and 1000 years ago there were major influxes of humans, of angels who came to Earth, carrying special energy attributes with them. It was not one person. It was not just Siddhartha. It was not just Yeshua Ben Joseph who came here to bring Light. It was a complete entourage of humans.

< Ascension 9 > It is the energy of Gautama, of Buddha, Siddhartha. He is known by many names, such as the Enlightened One - the true essence of the word Buddha, "The Enlightened One". Gautama is present, particularly at this time of the year, the time of your month of May, a time when dear Buddha was thought to have received his enlightenment under the Bo tree. Gautama comes in today to be with us as we talk about the New Energy of Earth. The energy of Gautama is present among all of you. Feel this fluid, fluid, golden energy moving in and out, shimmering with all colors, but filled with golden qualities.

< Ascension 9 > We spoke of changing truth, evolving truth. There is no single, static truth. Truth evolves in each moment of time and change of consciousness. Look at the pictures of yourself that we posted on the wall. You knew truth two years ago. The truth you know now is different. You have evolved, and you are wiser. We brought Gautama in to this place by the Salt Lake (Tobias Seminar, March 30, "What Is Truth") to let you know that truth evolves and changes. Your life and your truth will change, even from what it is today.

< Ascension 9 > It was important that his energy was there, for we spoke of a realization Siddhartha came to. It was fulfillment that he could not have in that lifetime. He understood it. He knew of it in his mind, and he felt the vibration of it in his being. But, he could not be in that consciousness because the energy of his day would not allow it. He came in a week and a day ago in this city that has gone through so much to deliver a message about going into the Void of Creation, the Void of Creation.

< Ascension 9 > I literally met Gautama the Buddha in my lifetime as Tobias. As Tobias the merchant, I traveled to lands far and wide to buy for the king. Some of my journeys were perhaps a bit longer than what the king was pleased with.

I was drawn to this area where Gautama taught. I heard that he was in a village not so far from where I was buying, so I went to listen to him. I was a relatively young man at the time. He was in his senior years. I sat and listened to him.

I was a Jew, strong in my own beliefs, but yet always searching, always investigating. While being very strict with my own beliefs, I always liked to hear what others had to say. When I heard Gautama that day, and saw the peace upon his face, and the divine presence all around, this changed much of my thinking.

I listened to him for hours then had the pleasure of speaking with him briefly afterwards. There were not many words from his mouth, yet there was much energy that came pouring from his heart. I asked him, "Dear Enlightened One, Prince Buddha, tell me of the truth you have found. What do you know that I should know also."

Buddha burst out laughing. He said, "Why is it that you think that I have found the truth?" I replied, "Dear Buddha, because they say you are the Enlightened One. You are called the Wise One."

Again he laughed and said, "Truth is always evolving. You never find it. You just realize certain energies having to deal with it. When you think you have found truth, it is time to move on. It is time to look for the next level of truth." "Why," he said, "do you think I continue to walk these many roads from village to village, not teaching everything I know, not satisfied with staying in one place?"

< Ascension 9 > "But," he said, "I do teach each person that the divine is within, that the Enlightenment is within. They will never find it in another person, or another place." And, a sadness came over Gautama. He said, "Do you know, dear Tobias, that this is my message, and yet so few want to hear it? They want to see miracles." He continued, saying, "I can perform a few miracles. They are tricks, in a way, perhaps miracles. But, I choose not to, because I do not want the energy focused on that. They want miracles, and they do not want to hear that it is within. They want a savior. I cannot be that for them, so I continue to search for my expanded truth. I can only hope that the message of the divine within reaches some ears."

< Ascension 9 > Gautama was born into royalty, a prince. This should tell you something right there… the fact that he was a prince, born in the kingdom to the king and the queen, to royalty. And, one day he would inherit the throne. There is no coincidence in this story!

His parents and family knew there was something different about him. Does this sound familiar, dear friends? They tried to keep him from the path of enlightenment, from pursuing the difficult journey. They pampered him in many ways. They shielded him in many ways, not allowing him to see the difficulty and challenges of the human journey. But, there was something nagging within him that wanted to explore the outside, to help him understand who he was on the inside. Does this sound familiar, Shaumbra?

So it was that Gautama tried to satisfy those around him. He married at a very young age, when he was but sixteen years old. He married because this was expected of him. This was an energy that others placed on him. Within a few years of time he and his wife brought a child into the world.

And, what did he do? What did he do? He left. He was disillusioned with life. He renounced the world of royalty he was living in. Oh, could you imagine the headlines if he was living today? "Father Abandons Family!" or "Prince Leaves Family for Selfish Journey."

But, Gautama had to search for his own truth and his own divinity. He left the royal family and took the vows of poverty. Does this sound familiar, dear friends? He took the vows of chastity. He changed his disguise and changed his identity, dear Shaumbra.

Gautama felt that his body and his humaness were not appropriate. They were holding him back, keeping him from knowing who he truly was. So, he abused his body by not feeding or nourishing it. He tried to deny himself, rather than following the song of his heart. He did this in his search for the truth. Does this sound familiar, dear Shaumbra?

He left his relationships, with all who he had known. He endured many physical and emotional hardships on the path. And, he went to study with a teacher, a grand and a wise teacher. He studied, dear ones, the art of "no-thing," thinking that if he emptied out his entire being, he would come to know who he was. He studied hard and long with this master of releasing.

Gautama is here now to tell you that what he was doing was one more level of denying. He was denying his mind the ability to operate, and to have vibrations and energies pass in and out of it. He was taught in his studies how to block the mind, how to stop the flow of energy. He also did this with his body. He denied his body of the love.

Indeed, he learned much in doing this. He learned that pain is not so much fun! He learned that there are many altered-state trips that you can take when your body and your mind are at those deep levels of denial. But, he learned that the altered-state trips were not based in living or reality. They were also illusions. They did not bring the essence of love, the essence of Spirit, and the essence of truth.

Gautama had "fun" playing with this deep level of denying… when his hair fell out, because there were no nutrients feeding it… and when his toenails literally fell out. He was not loving his body. He was denying it. And, when his bones became brittle, he learned more about this denial, this "no-thing."

One day the inner voice within Gautama realized that this was not the truth he sought. It was but an aspect. So, he left, and he continued down the road. He continued his deep levels of meditation. He continued his ceremonies. He continued all those sacred practices. In a sense, these were helping to drive him. These were creating low points. Oh, indeed, Gautama had depression, and fear, and anxiety. But, what he was really doing was creating a low to help him eventually get to a new level of enlightenment.

Along the road he heard of another teacher. The teachings of this new wise one sounded true and deep. So, he went to be schooled by a second master. The second master taught him the art of non-perception. He taught him the art that all things are merely illusions.

Gautama loved this study, this game of the mind, of having no perception, no illusions of anything, of releasing all things. In a sense, it was the antithesis of the denial that he had previously studied. But he soon learned that "no-perception" is simply another form of denial. When everything is called an illusion and nothing is brought back, when there is denial of the "now" you are experiencing… this is just another form of denial. Does that sound familiar, Shaumbra?

Gautama left the second school with deep despair, not finding the answer and the truth that he was truly searching for. At some point he realized that this life of denial, blockages and not living in the "now" … was not truth. He resumed eating, feeding his body with the energy it needed. He went back to a life of some abundance. He realized that having no abundance was only causing pain.

With this new wisdom he had a balance of understanding… of energies… of abundance… of feeding the body… of allowing flow through the mind. He came back into the "now" world, resuming relationships with the ones who were families and who had been friends.

Do you understand what Gautama is telling you on this day, dear friends? After he endured pain and suffering through denial, he received his major enlightenment in that lifetime. While he was sitting under the tree, Gautama realized that indeed he was Spirit, expressing as a human… but indeed he was Spirit.

When he understood this at the deepest levels within him, others saw it upon his face and in his countenance. They began to follow him. They wanted what he had. He told the followers over and over, "It is within you. Indeed, I can offer you the wisdom of my experience, but the journey is your own." He did not so much like this following, but they did, they did.

Now, many books have been written about the Enlightened One. Many temples have been built in his honor. People around the world talk about his journeys and what he learned. He is here today to tell you one thing: this so-called enlightenment, this so-called divine understanding… he could not fully grasp it in his lifetime. But, it is available to you, Shaumbra in your lifetime. We will explain what we mean by this.

< Ascension 9 > Neither was Gautama when he went through his period of denial. He was in the lowest state of lows, physically and mentally. But, yet this provided the energy and motivation for him to keep moving along. In duality, the lows provide - how to say - a roller coaster effect to take you to a high. The highs periods are when you solidify the enlightenments and the wisdom that you gained in the lows. It is here that you bring the new wisdom into a more tangible, crystalline form.

< Ascension 9 > "I had enlightenment for that time and that consciousness of Earth." "But, because of the entire consciousness of Earth," he says, "I could not go into this true place of divinity. I could not create New Energy." "Indeed, I came to understand many things about my journey," he says, "but the true enlightenment, I could not realize, because the consciousness of Earth was not ready for it at the time."Gautama could not go into the ascension energy that you can. There are many wonderful things that he realized. But, he could not go into the Void of Ascension, for it did not exist.

< NewEnergy 1 > And, coming in now to the energy of this group is the beloved and gentle energy of Buddha, Gautama, who comes in also, smiling from ear to ear… happy to have been human… and happy to be divine… happy that there is a group of humans on Earth who are coming to the understanding of what true integrated enlightenment is. This is the melding of the human and the spirit. This is the accepting of the (human) Self and the Divine (Self) all together.

< NewEnergy 1 > It is time for even Buddha's energy to leave. You will see, you will see some rather interesting - how to say - depictions of this, portrayals of this in many parts of your Earth. You will see almost a rebellion against Buddha by some who can no longer handle the energy, more smashing of statues. And, Buddha is fine with this, dear ones. He does not need statues of metal, bronze, stone, or even plastic put in his honor.

He comes in today to sit beside you. He has been there to guide you in so many ways, to be part of your journey. He too will return with a new name and a new energy, but not as one who you put on a pedestal, not whose image you put on the altar, but a new type of image, an image that was able to be created because of the very work that you did, the very progress of humanity.

< NewEnergy 11QA > We use the term "Christ consciousness" quite broadly. And, at its core it would mean a "crystal consciousness" or a "clear consciousness," not held back by things such as karma and such as duality in its simplest state. Yeshua - or also known as Jesus - was one of the first to come in with this energy of Christ consciousness. So many of you helped to bring in the initial seeds of this several thousands of years ago. It created a potential on Earth at the time that would grow and grow and grow.

The Christ consciousness is not a person. It is an attribute of clarity and simplicity and moving beyond duality. And, it can be embodied and brought into your everyday life. Quite simply it has been brought in by many of those who you have called Masters, such as Buddha, and such as Mohammed, and such as Yeshua. All held within them the Christ consciousness, but it could not be expressed as fully and demonstrated in life as you can now do. So, the Christ consciousness is clarity and release from the past. It is, at its core, also energies coming back into balance and expanding once again.

< Clarity 8 > There are Enlightened Ones, enlightened masters such as Buddha, who spent a lifetime, actually many lifetimes (Tobias chuckling) ... We joked about him. He was the grand sufferer of all! There was Buddha who denied everything in his lifetime, as Gautama, or Buddha, and his whole attempt was to disconnect from the Field. He did it first by disconnecting from the physical planes and from his body, and then he did it by disconnecting from his mind. Then he slowly started disconnecting from the crystalline realms. But he went through so many trials and tribulations to do it. He punished his body and he damned his mind.

< Clarity 8 > He (Buddah) eventually got there. He eventually got there after many, many, many lifetimes and many attempts to disconnect. But he was able to do it in a pure moment of brilliance when he finally said "I give up!" (laughter) It wasn't some grand angelic inspiration, it wasn't the hand of the Spirit coming down upon him. When he finally said "I give up with this suffering and trying and I give up with this discipline," in that moment sitting under the tree, he did have enlightenment, and then the heavens opened up and we all applauded and said "Thank God, finally!" (Laughter)

< Teacher 5 > It is interesting because at the very time that I was Pythagoras the philosopher, was also the time on Earth where Buddha was embodied, where Buddha was beginning his energy. It was also about the same time where Tobias was on Earth. You see, we, as humans and as groups, develop patterns and then we follow these patterns. We continue to work with them until those very patterns are ready to evolve and transform. And then we move through the old energy into the new.

< (Next) 1 > But what often happens, and in the example I give, for instance, of Buddha, of Siddhartha, was that he felt that deny the mind, deny the body and the spirit would come forward. Bad advice. Really bad advice. Why would the spirit want to come forward or your divine come in if you're suffering? So that's actually what's happening is burn out, thinking that this is the way to basically annihilate the mind. You don't have to do that. You don't have to do that. The mind is not your enemy. It's really not. It's a beautiful device, not your enemy.

< (Next) 3 > It happens to everyone I've ever known who is on the spiritual path, including Buddha - lot of makyo there - including some of the great spiritual leaders of the times, including every Ascended Master that I've ever known. They get to this point of makyo on the journey. It happens kind of near the end of self-realization, and they start polluting themselves with a lot of crap - spiritual bullshit, rhetorical, dogmatic, organizational and structural stuff.

< e2012 8 > Buddha was neurotic, phobic. He had phobias, a lot of phobias. There were certain types of insects and bugs he was just deathly afraid of. He was neurotic. He was always having to clean his hands and his feet all the time. He was very selfish, in the bad meaning of the word selfish. He stole energy from everybody. “Oh, here comes Buddha. Get out of the way. He's going to try to steal energy.” And he could never settle into anything. He had chosen a nice rich family to be born into; he couldn't settle into that.

He had demons going after him all the time. He was perhaps what you would call a multiple personality, flipping back and forth, as a lot of the neurotic people do – one minute holy man, next minute total jerk. And he would be offended if there were certain things you were wearing or certain odors coming from your body. So he was very difficult to get along with it.

Later on he chilled. He relaxed a little bit. He had this neurotic obsession for enlightenment and just starved himself to death to get it. Actually, he starved because he was phobic about a lot foods. He just wouldn't eat them. If anybody even looked at a food that he was going to eat, he couldn't eat it.

Finally he relaxed. He gave up trying to find himself, trying to get to know himself. He relaxed. That's when he started eating. He gained some weight and he finally had the enlightenment that he had always wanted. He melded with himself.

< Kharisma 2 > Now Buddha didn't used to have a sense of humor, but now he does. And this is a fact. I'm not just making this up, but Buddha, he's done a good job. Buddha is locked in a statue. And how many ascended enlightened beings has Buddha got to his side? Not so many. Why? Because they're all worshipping Buddha and statues. And Buddha never intended it to happen, but it just kind of did. So he has, well, about a hundred enlightened beings to his credit that he taught. But they're stuck. They're stuck in Buddhaville. That's somewhere between awakening and mastery, and they're stuck in that. Not much he can do about it. Notice nobody really channels Buddha. Ever wonder why? Yeah. You never hear of the Buddha channeler. No, no. Think about it. Feel into it. I'll give you the answer later.
