< e2012 5 > So this is a beautiful metaphor, a beautiful metaphor, because humans live in a tube, live on the inside of there. What they don't see – they don't see several things. First of all, they don't really think they're just living inside a tube. They think that this is all there is. So when they're living inside the tube. They don't see the outside, which is this beautiful wrapping. They don't see that their tube, which represents linear reality – linear reality – they don't see that this tube is wrapped in gift paper, beautiful gift paper. So they don't really see that life is a gift. It is a beautiful gift for them.
< e2012 5 > So here you are in the present moment, living within that tube, going into your experience, and the experience that ultimately gives you wisdom. And the next part of the equation has to do with choice. You make a choice, and let's say the choice is to expand your reality. So now that choice immediately starts drawing in energies from all over to support it. So, theoretically, in your tube, it should start now expanding, growing bigger and ultimately dissolving. The whole tube dissolves away. So starting here (one end of the tube) and then just getting bigger and bigger, because you've made, let's say, the choice to expand your consciousness and awareness.
< e2012 5 > Now, if you notice here that in this drawing is contrary to typical perspective. In other words, as you go along in your experience, it's opening up and eventually it dissolves. Typically, in perspective, as you go on your journey, it creates a distant endpoint or really an infinity point that keeps going. So here you're going along on your journey by choice, drawing in energy, and eventually expanding. Now, the question came in about doubt. What happens with doubt? Doubt naturally suppresses or pushes away the energies that are supposed to be moving in. So doubt will decrease the level of energy that's supporting the choice that would eventually give you more experience and wisdom.
< e2012 5 > So basically the formula would be Present moment plus Choice equals Energy and then Expansion. (Adamus writes P + C = E --> E) But when doubt comes in, it has a way of taking the energy out of the equation, or suppressing it to the point that you're never really going to have that expansion, or the expansion just goes along in this linear tube, and you're not really expanding. You just continue traveling along here. So the point is doubt has a significant influence on the energies that are coming in. The doubt comes from you. It doesn't come from anywhere else. So take a deep breath and take a look at what it's doing with the energies. How it's keeping you in a tube – a linear tube.
< e2012 5 > In this whole analogy, the tube that you have is existing within time and space. Time and space make this tube the reality. It keeps it held in there. It keeps you held in there. So as you attract more and more energies with less and less doubt, it will start blowing away the whole concept of time and space. Time and space are brilliant creations, up to a point. There comes a point when you get off of them. As I said before, you start looking into the layers and levels, and suddenly you're not using time and space as the measurement devices and as the devices that hold you into this reality. You start expanding out of them.
< e2012 5 > Doubt will put the time and space equation back into your reality. Doubt gets you right back into time and space. It sounds romantic to get beyond them. It's actually a little bit frightening. As a matter of fact, it can be terrifying to go beyond time and space, because suddenly your tube doesn't exist anymore or the tube no longer has the characteristics that you've always thought it had from looking within. Suddenly, it's expanding. Suddenly, it's not on a linear path; it's flowing in a lot of different ways. Suddenly, you're not bound to or contracted into this reality like you were before.
< e2012 5 > It's one of the things that the Ascended Masters had a particular difficult time with – no pun intended – but they had difficulty with this whole concept of going beyond time and space. So you want more consciousness, you want more energy and all the rest of these things, but they are not going to fit into this tube. This tube is defined by time and space and a certain energy equation. We're going to go beyond that.
< e2012 5 > Inviting your soul, your wisdom, potentials, your I Am-ness into the tube, into this reality is perhaps the greatest gift you could have ever given yourself. So a funny thing happened. We talked about what would you tell a human being about this year. Imagine just for a moment that you are the soul; you were outside now giving advice to the human in the tube, that you gave all these for yourself. You're the divinity giving it to that human aspect. What if it wasn't the human sitting here inviting the divine in, what if it was just the other way around? What if it wasn't the human sitting here making a list, but those were from the divine?
< e2012 6 > People think they want to get out of the tube, but when actually given the opportunity, they don't. They actually just want a little bigger tube, and they want to know what lies ahead in front of them on the tube, which is kind of silly. And then they die and they kind of never really get out of the tube, really, for all intents and purposes, and then they incarnate back again and continue traveling along in the tube, and you could just imagine one tube after the other after the other. They become numb to it. They limit their own thoughts and imagination and ideas to adapt to this tube, never realizing that it's actually this beautiful paper on the outside, never actually realizing there's so much more out here.
< e2012 6 > What holds this tube into place, what's keeping it a tube is time and space and belief systems. But primarily time and space. It's keeping that tube a tube. It's keeping the illusion for all of you that it's there. That's kind of what life is like. You're held into place by time and space. Some other factors as well, but those are the primary ones. So in order to expand beyond this tube, it's about releasing time and space. Not destroying it, not denying it, but releasing its tight grip. That is challenging, because it's so dense. You're so bought into it. You wear the watches. You are in physical form. You're a part, a product of time and space.
< e2012 6 > So we're going to expand beyond the tube, beyond these forces of time and space. Stop for a moment. But what would life be without time? Good – up to the point you got out of bed in the morning, because everybody else is operating in it, and they don't like when you're late for appointments. They don't like when your essence shows up from the future into their reality now, and that's really what happens. You suddenly become so expansive time really doesn't matter.
< e2012 6 > Suddenly, things aren't occurring in a singular motion. They're occurring simultaneously. As I've said before, there is no time outside of the earthly realms. In the angelic realms there's no factor of time. There is the evolution of experience – a progression of experience – but it's not necessarily a linear progression. It's the evolution of experience.
< e2012 6 > It is not an attribute that you have to fight. You do not have to break out of time. You expand through time. You don't have to conquer time. Those ways of the old Mystery Schools are old. There was a lot of work in the Mystery Schools, and a lot of the retreats that were done, to conquer certain things. But time does not need to be conquered. Time needs to be accepted within its parameters with the understanding that there's so much more out there. Timeless reality is kind of fun. Timed reality can be fun also, can be quite an experience, but you're ready to break out of time.
< e2012 6 > space is the other one. What happens when we go out of space? Again, confusing. Absolutely. Fear of physical annihilation. When you lose control of space, the biggest fear that I have seen, it leaves you vulnerable to interdimensional spooks. You're in a space right now. I wouldn't say it's safe, but it's safer than being without space. You know how to manage it, kind of control it and maneuver in it, but suddenly you're without space. Suddenly you're in this foreign environment and there is a concern that evil is going to overcome you – dark forces, demons, bad beings – and more so than ever, your beings, your demons.
< e2012 6 > That's really what it is – the freedom to be in time or space, the freedom to go beyond it. Freedom to choose any energies any time you want. What is time? Just a measurement. What is space? Just a focal point. So beyond measuring, beyond focusing. The divine, the soul, it is timeless; it is spaceless. It is truly free. By doing expanding outside of the tube, you can start experiencing yourself as your soul. Going beyond experiencing yourself as just a human. And we do this simple “take a deep breath” … when we do this simple exercise, it allows you to really feel as the soul feels.
< e2012 6 > This soul self, ah, it soars like a bird. It has simplicity, elegance. It's not trapped in any tube or any cage. It knows no time. It knows no space. It knows only itself, only its own love. And when you let yourself expand outside the tube, you start to understand yourself, your soul. What a great concept to be able to live in the tube, experience in this gift wrap tube when you want, be able to be outside of it when you want, or both simultaneously. That's true expansion – both simultaneously.
