< e2012 3 > Steve Jobs was no saint. No saint at all. For those who aren't aware - Steve Jobs, the co-creator, co-founder of Apple. Steve Jobs changed the world. Ah, he's an interesting, interesting character, and so interesting that, while I'm not a fan of sharing the stage with any other beings - I like to have you all to myself, unlike Tobias, always had a guest - I have asked Mr. Jobs to be with us today. (audience responds "Ooh") And he agreed immediately, without hesitation.
< e2012 3 > Let's invite in Steve Jobs. Yes, this is kind of historic, because I don't normally do this and don't intend to make it a habit. But as was said earlier today, he was kind of Shaumbra, kind of connected with the energies. He's smiling right now. If you would like to, you can close your eyes to sense him or keep them open, but he's wandering around the room. Doesn't have any intention right now of going to some Bridge of Flowers or anything else. He's still having far too much fun in hanging around. Too many projects, too many things he wants to do, too many associations.
< e2012 3 > Now, it's been said that Steve was a Buddhist. I guess you could say he was. He's kind of shaking his head right now and saying, "Was and wasn't, didn't really care one way or the other," but it kind of fit. He liked the identification with it. For him, Buddhism was not so much about the spiritual journey. It was about a way for him to manage his energy through meditation, diet, discipline, denial. It provided some insights, definitely, into simplicity, and that's probably what he loved more about it than anything else - elegance and simplicity, the Zen of life, the beautiful simple elegance. So he connected with it that way.
< e2012 3 > But it also, as you know, Steve had tended to have a bit of a temper. Actually, the temper was partly that he didn't want to settle for less. He always wanted the most out of himself and those who worked around him, but it did lead to anger at times. So the Buddhism part was a place for him to get back his balance and his center.
< e2012 3 > When he crossed over recently, he said the simple words many of you have read, "Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow!" Kind of like almost a spiritual orgasm, because it kind of was. What was he saying "oh wow" to? (one person says "Us"; another says "Life" and another says "Himself") Himself. Good. You get an Adamus Award for that. Himself! He met himself - the self that was so close, so, so, so close, because of the type of inner work he had done. It was right there. So when he crossed over, immediately he met himself. "Oh wow!" It was amazing.
< e2012 3 > Most people don't have that kind of experience when they cross over. They kind of have to go through this big long tunnel, and they look at their regrets and their grandmother is still scolding them and those things. But I have to say, my dear friends, when you cross over, you're going to have that "oh wow." You're going to realize - and maybe you won't even have to cross over for it to happen - you're going to realize how the 'you' is right there, right now. Not way out there somewhere, but it's, oh wow, right here.
< e2012 3 > That was the "oh wow" from Steve. "I Am right here." And in that I Am, that oh wow that he realized, he realized that what had been separating him from it was so thin that he could have just - whoosh! - blown on it and it would have fallen over. Such a thin veil between the human aspect and his I Am-ness. So very thin. And then he had a huge laugh and said, "You know, if I had just taken that breath, and if I had just relaxed for a moment, I'd have realized that 'oh wow' was here right now. But I did try to study too much, and I tried to develop mechanics and systems for my own living ascension and it didn't work out. I had fun otherwise." Steve is saying now, "Wouldn't it have been great if I could have just done that 'oh wow' a long time before I had to face the physical departure. The 'oh wow' in the Now moment."
< e2012 3 > So I invited Mr. Jobs in today, and he's fascinated with what you're doing. He knows what you're doing, because we talked, and he can sense it right now. He has tremendous admiration for the pioneer nature of what you're doing. He says a few words. First of all, "Allow yourself to realize what you're doing. Stop denying who you are, because you're going to waste precious years - your precious years, but precious years for this planet. Stop denying who you are. Let your grandness show. You're not doing service to anyone by denying your grandness. It's a dead end game. You're idiots if you play that game." he says. Okay, so … I'm much calmer than you are, Steve!
< e2012 3 >
So, with that, next: "You are the visionaries
for this planet, but you do it by being visionaries of yourself." Vision
is one of the greatest gifts that Mr. Jobs allowed
himself. He came here with it, but he allowed it to show. The vision, the
ability to feel, not into the minutia and the details, but into the overall, the
ability for him to feel into what would evolve
consciousness - a computer at your desktop.
He had a very, very big argument at one time with the United States government about shipping computers to communist countries. And, of course, the government in their infinite lack of wisdom, said, "You can't do it, because they're going to have all these powerful tools."
His vision said, "You should do it, because it will give each person sovereignty on their desktop. It will give them access to the world. It will open up the truth. It will enable them to be empowered human beings. And when there's empowered human beings, there cannot be walls; there cannot be old political structures; and there cannot be imbalances of energy. Ship the Macs!" (some laughter, Adamus chuckling) I threw in a little commercial for his company. (laughter)
He had the ability to envision, next, that people would go beyond a computer as just a place to run some software programs, do some typing. It was a central point of connection - connection with themselves and secondarily with the outside world; with their music; with their creativity; with their photos and their artwork; with all of their aspects. That little box that you have sitting on your desk is actually a brilliant tool that connects you with your aspects, allows you to put everything into very real time, into motion, into a sensual experience with your aspects - the aspects of art, the aspects of your past lives, actually - just feel into it for later - but it's a connection point.
And it's not the piece of hardware, but it's the potentials that it represents and what it can do, and he had that vision. He said, "Oh, by the way, and then people can buy music and connect on the Internet and read books and everything else, but these are empowerment tools," and he had that vision.
< e2012 3 > He asked that you have vision for yourself. You're not too old, none of you. I don't care how old that body is. I don't care if you think you're in your waning years. Actually, those are the best years for vision, because you had a lot of experience. You've got a pretty good center balance now. What you also have is a lot of doubt, and you're thinking, "Oh, it's a lot of energy." It is not. Visionary beings don't need a lot of energy. It's not tiring. Mental beings get tired. They do. Structural beings wear out, just like structural parts and machines wear out. Structural humans wear out, but visionaries do not.
< e2012 3 > Steven Jobs was a wonderful creator - wonderful creator, a lot of ideas, a lot of vision - then the problem was, as you know, how do you implement it here? How do you produce it? It's one thing to just think about it. How do you produce it? Well, that's when you do align yourself with good people, with energy efficient systems. And one of the things that Steven was known for was his intolerance for lack of quality, intolerance for lack of passion. In other words, don't tolerate it within yourself. Don't cop out within yourself. Don't take second best for you anymore.
< e2012 8 > And –
not that this next one is an Ascended Master,
but he's an interesting study – Steve Jobs. Steve
Jobs, somebody from your era – brilliant, driven, totally insecure. Absolutely
insecure. One minute very obsessed about the project he was working on, and the
real project actually was technology tools to expand consciousness,
interconnectivity to share, to actually expand the consciousness of humanity.
That was kind of implanted in him. Brilliant ideas.
He was a visionary who had this mental/creative melding a long time ago, but totally insecure. Always questioning. It got tiring after a while. “Am I doing the right thing? Am I going the right way? Should I have done it this way or that way?” Wasted a lot of energy doubting, worrying all the time.
