Jim Carrey explains

“As an actor you play characters, and then, if you go deep enough into those characters you realize that your own character is pretty thin to begin with.

And then you suddenly have this separation and go: “Well who is Jim Carrey?”

“Oh he doesn’t exist actually.”

There’s just a relative manifestation of consciousness “appearing” and then someone gave him a bunch of ideas. They gave him a name, a religion, and a nationality.

And he clustered those together into something that is supposed to be a personality.” – Jim Carrey

From what I have observed…

“…the Personality is not the same thing as the passenger. The Personality is who I think I am, filtered through the mind (Ra’s definition).

We have a binary consciousness; there is the potential to observe both the design consciousness frequency of the form, and the personality consciousness frequency of the mind. We are held together in the illusion of our separateness…That which observes the body/mind vehicle is the passenger, the eternal Personality Crystal.

As long as I am identified – ‘me’ as the Personality, or ‘me’ as the vehicle, or the idea of ‘me’ as the passenger – I am missing half of the movie. Learning to observe, to be the witness to what life brings is a moment by moment experiment in being aware.”- Leela Swann-Herbert

Ra’s Words of Wisdom – The Reflector

“When it comes to Reflectors, they’re something quite different after all. They really are. Not just that they are a large minority, but they are different with a very different cycle, a lunar cycle. But the most important thing for a Reflector is to understand its relationship to the program. And you can see thematically in non-energy Types that living their Design actually means studying in many ways, being educated in their Design. Whereas living the Design for the energy Types is something that is there to be leapt into instantaneously and immediately, because it’s possible.

There is a different way in which the process works. You know the story of the tortoise and the hare, because it’s one of those cute stories. You have what appears to be the energy Types racing ahead, racing into living out their Design. But in fact, we’re all on a seven-year cycle. And though it looks like the energy Types race ahead in the end everybody gets there at the same time, it’s a seven-year cycle.

The entering in for the Projector is a different process, that’s all, or for the Reflector, a different process, a different way in which they need to enter into living their Design, which means not so much living their Design, but being focused on understanding, knowing, making sense of Design in others. And for the Reflector, to understand the deep impact of the program, of the planets, specially of the moon, of the way in which they are conditioned by the general programming field and how they have a special gift of connecting to it and to be able to see their life lived in the harmony of their relationship to the turning of the wheel.

But everything having to do with the legitimacy of involvement in this knowledge is just simply living it. And whether that means the active principle that is there in the energy Type, or the passive principle that is there in the non-energy Types, it is the same thing. It is about the commitment to the process. This is what brings transformation and it brings something much more important. That is, I have a number of goals as a teacher. One of them is to take the burden off of the shoulders of those beings who meet this knowledge because I think at the very simplest level, at the very rudimentary level of understanding your Design, it already helps you release yourself from so many burdens you have carried. And it’s a great service that it does.

Weirdos in the mail:

Weirdo: Dear Mr. Pretends-To-Be-Certain, Do people also often tell you that you’re an asshole that easily gets stuck in your own very narrow and rigid way of seeing? Your childish need to be an authority and put others down? That you’re terrible at looking in the mirror of your own hypocrisy and judgments? I’m not into passive aggressively making wall posts intended for individuals, so I though I should offer you the honor of direct contact.

Me: No
