rules and regulations / law

< Ascension 2 > Own your divinity through your body by being playful with your body. You get so serious! You diet and hurt yourself. Do you know what causes you to be fat? It is your damn diets! (audience laughter and applause) You hurt yourself and your body by the thoughts that you put through it. Your divinity is coming up from within your body. Play with your body! Feed it those chocolates! (audience applause) Oh, we know we will get this thought mail from many who will say, "Oh, Tobias, medical history and science has proven these things to be bad." No, what is bad is some of the thoughts that you have, some of your rules and regulations. (audience applause)

< Ascension 2 > There are some now who even shake their heads, who say, "Tobias, you do not know what you are talking about." And we say to you, "Fine. Continue your game of rules and regulations and self-punishment of your body." To the others we say, "Go have fun!" Allow your divinity to come up. This is how you own it. You own it by playing with it, by playing with it.

< Ascension 2 > Your divinity is like a child. Even though it is your essence, even though it is all who you are, it is being rebirthed. You died. You died, and now you are being rebirthed, and that is what is happening inside of you. You are birthing your own divinity in your body, in your mind, in your emotions. Play with it! How would you treat a child? Would you give a two-day-old child or a six-month-old or one-year-old child a list of rules and regulations? Some of you may! (audience laughter) Most of you would find joy with that child. Most of you would take responsibility for it, hold it in your arms, look at it lovingly, feed it, nurture it, and look forward to every moment you could play with it. That is how you take ownership of your divinity.

< Ascension 4 > Then, we spoke a week ago of the human who searched for God through spiritual rules and the regulations. This one was a minister, and was proficient at understanding the Scriptures. He felt he could find Spirit by following the rules precisely, by doing certain deeds on certain days in certain ways. And as you know, this does not work. That is why we have asked you to release ceremony, other than the ceremony of joy. Do you understand that? We ask you to release ceremony because you become trapped in it, much as this human in our example became trapped in rules. Do you know if you took all of the rules to heart, you could not move? You could not do anything! If you study these rules carefully, you will find they contradict one another. They were based on a consciousness of the time, and they applied to certain groups. If you try to follow these 2000 and some years later, it will hurt, because they do not apply to the energy that you are in.

< DivineHuman 1 > We know the rules. We helped to write the old rules. We know how things are done in the Old Energy world, the world we still live in. We know why the rules are there. We know how to follow them. But, we also know how to transcend the rules without offending the others. We know how to transcend the rules, so we can express our divinity, so we can express our God-selves in the most sacred and joyful way.

< DivineHuman 5 > As Shaumbra, we remind ourselves that it is time for all of the rules to come down now. Let there be no rules in our life. Between now and the end of our calendar year, we will look at the rules that we have created. We will look at the rules that we have created about what is the right way to dress… what is the right way to talk… what is the right way to act… what are the right things to believe in… what are the right foods to eat.

We have created volumes and volumes of rules, and none of them apply anymore. We will look throughout these next days and weeks of time as we experience things in our life. We will look at all the rules that we have. And, we will come to understand that the rules perhaps served us in the past, but are no longer appropriate.

It is time for all of the rules to be gone. We have allowed the rules to rule our life. We have given up control and power of who we are to rules that don’t apply anymore. We have let a portion of our own identity be the judge and jury. Those are the voices that we hear in our head. Those are the voices from the very rules that we made up, and then gave authority to part of ourselves.

To enforce the rules, we hear the voice of the judge and the jury, and they are controlling and guiding so much of our lives. It is time to take all of those law books that we have written for ourselves and throw them out. Those old rules are not becoming of us anymore. The old rules don’t look good on us anymore. They don’t serve us anymore.

As Shaumbra, we gave up power to old rules that the old self created. As Shaumbra, we let the kingdom of ourselves be governed by aspects of ourselves - the judge and the jury that told us what to do and what not to do. As we look out on our path and what lies ahead for us, we realize that the old rules will keep us from becoming who we are, keep us from understanding the true "I Am."

So, it is time that we look at how those rules dictate and guide our lives. And, then we release them all.

There are rules that guide our lives that we don’t even understand are rules. They are so engrained and embedded within us that we don’t realize that these were illusions, that we don’t need them anymore. We tend to create such narrow guidelines for ourselves that we have not allowed ourselves to truly express and truly enjoy.

We’ve created so many of the rules because we didn’t trust ourselves. We didn’t trust our own power and our own divinity. So, we limited ourselves with rule after rule after rule about how to live… and what to be… and how to be perceived by others.

We realize that these old rules are the last vestiges of what needs to be released in order to become a Divine Human. We have released past lives. We have released old energies. We have released other people. But, now, as Shaumbra, we realize it’s time to release all of the old rules that we created. None of them apply anymore. And there is no reason to write new ones.

If we are going to let our divinity be our guide, why would we need rules? Why would we have to create restrictions? If we truly trust ourselves as divine angels, there are no rules. There is only creation. There is only "I Am." And so it is.

< DivineHuman 5QA > Rules! Your rules! Your self-worth! All of these issues that we speak to you about over and over again… old issues from past lives that are still stuck, past lives when you gave the vows of poverty… rules that you give yourself now in his lifetime! Do you know, dear friends, that your greatest fear is your ability to create? You worry that, left without walls, left without rules, and restrictions, and barriers, and filters, that you might create something ugly, or terrible. You think back to the days before you ever came to Earth when you were creating the physical universe, when there were great wars and great battles. And, you said to yourself, "I will NEVER express my power in that way again!" And, here you are, standing before us, asking why you can't create?

< DivineHuman 5QA > We know that so many of you are feeling stuck right now. Part of it is that there are so many old issues that are still coming up. And, as we have said before, it will get easier in these months ahead. It will get easier. Part of the other thing is what you stated to yourselves in Shoud today - that there are so many old rules that YOU have placed there that are in the way. It is time to let these go. You let them go by observing and seeing what these old rules were, and then releasing them.

< DivineHuman 8 > Moses helped to create new guidelines for humans at the time. He helped them understand how to live a better moral life, as well as a better spiritual life. He helped create rules that were needed at the time, rules that would help a person understand their place in the community, their place in the family, and their place with God. He gave hope to a whole new nation.

< DivineHuman 10 > That is where the churches are going wrong right now. That is why their walls are coming down. They try to define God through rules, through rituals, through Old ways. It will not happen. God, and the love of Spirit, and the love of all the angels, and the love of your divinity can only be felt in the moment as you breathe, as you allow creative flow.

< NewEnergy 9 > On our side we're amazed at the new rules and the new laws that are created. Why? Oh, you say, "We have to control people." When you try to control someone is when the problems start occurring. They rebel. You have rebelled, Shaumbra… every one of you. When rules were inflicted on you, you have rebelled.

< NewEnergy 9 > Indeed, there is a God, but not like what you could possibly have imagined yesterday - not the guy in the sky… not the Old Energy… certainly not judgmental… certainly without any rules. So, you say, "Well, how could God be tangible, if there are no rules, where it is all just this 'lovey' thing? Who's controlling everything?" There is an energy that transcends anything you could understand on Earth, an energy of - what you would call on our side - Truth. Feel it for a moment. It is not about laws. It is about Truth. There are many levels of it. It is not about control, for you don't need to have control when there is evolving Truth. You only have to have control when Truth is limited and suppressed.

< Clarity 4 > Once you question a belief system… as we were saying, the law… well, laws are written by man. Laws are written in order to try to keep harmony with a group of very strong angels living on Earth. Laws were meant to be a common consensus, but now have become either small-group agendas or individual agendas. So, why abide by any of the law? We are not saying to do it or not to do it. But, ask yourself why. What is this belief system?

< Clarity 4 > How has law, how have rules fed you? How have the rules created by your office… those are some of the silliest rules that we've ever seen created in the work environment. They are designed to limit consciousness - that's all - limit consciousness. Oh, it's not a bad thing. It's a food. Limited consciousness allows a focus that allows everybody to - as you would say - be on the same page. And, it keeps you from going off in different directions. But, belief systems like that can only last for a short period of time because they're not based in a higher consciousness, especially consciousness like you are achieving.

< Clarity 4 > So, laws… they are belief systems. And, some are afraid to even think beyond them, to say, "Why is that there? Well, that is quite silly." Or, perhaps it serves a reason. But, there is an energy, an underlying energy that supports consciousness. Laws - no matter what city, country that you are in - they help to define mass consciousness. That is all they are. They're defining mass consciousness. And, you were told that you have to accept them, one way or the other; this is the way the law is. You have to believe in it, and if you don't, you'll get thrown in prison. Well, if you believe that, then you will create that. And, you'll go right along with the game. It is time to go beyond that, Shaumbra, time to move beyond.

< QuantumLeap 4> So he turned around and walked back up the mountain - this time no burning bush - feeling very angry and upset with his people and said, "They don't need to know about the Commitments of Spirit, they need commandments. They need rules, and they need laws." So he threw out the inspiration that he had received. He walked back down the mountains, and he found one who could record, and he sat before them as they recorded his thoughts, and he actually originally came up with twelve commandments.

< (Next) 1 > One of the things that every one of you is experiencing right now - right now - in a very beautiful but sometimes confusing way, is going beyond your mind. And that's a difficult thing. As I said in our discussion on this radio Internet program, the mind is highly programmed. The mind is highly susceptible to programming, first of all. It is highly programmed over many, many lifetimes - many, many lifetimes - of programming, indoctrination, a constant set of information and regulations and rules going into the mind.

< e2012 2 > When something is put in a bottle, something is boxed up, something is structured, when science doesn't explore totally new possibilities outside of any of the current theories, it explodes. What happens with education right now, it's being ground down. The creative, all the arts, are being taken out, the music taken out. As I've said before, art will save the world. It truly will. When a society can be artistic, first and foremost, that means it has liberated itself. It's not the painting that's going to free somebody. It's the consciousness that "We can spend our time with the joyful, sensual pleasures on Earth, rather than the mental, rather than the rules and regulations." That shows a free society.

< e2012 5 > There are so many times when Shaumbra misunderstands, and they think that's about everybody else. A lot of the rules, a lot of the laws are agreements between humans to create some semblance of balance. So those aren't necessarily bad. When we – when I – talk about rules, I'm talking about the rules you have for yourself. You have a lot more laws on the book in your book of life than there are laws in the state governments or federal governments or cities. A lot more rules about what you should and shouldn't do, how to dress, how to act, how to be, the good, the bad – all of these rules.
