February 23, 2020
Good morning, we are recording. It is Sunday, February 23, 2020. Welcome to the Party, to the partyof12.com, I am Barbara With. And today we are continuing our conversations about transcendence.
To refresh, in our last session we talked about “pragmatic” transcendence, in which we defined pragmatic as “active rather than contemplative.” So, this is something we put into action rather than just think about. And transcendence is “seeing from above and independent of the material experience and universe.” So pragmatic transcendence becomes actively seeking to see the world from above and independent of what’s happening in it.
This session we’re exploring “creative” transcendence. I got this title from the Party, so I grabbed the dictionary. We have a favorite dictionary we call the “Cosmic Dictionary.” Because back when I started working with Kim and Teresa with the Psychic Sorority, we had to look up this word. We wanted to look up with “influence” meant. The first time we ever looked anything up. And Lily grabbed her red American Heritage dictionary, and one of the meanings of influence was, “An ethereal fluid that flows from the stars that affects the fate of men. So, we coined it the Cosmic Dictionary because who knew what influence was. It turns out that all three of us had the very same dictionary just coincidentally.
Creative: … “characterized by originality and expressiveness; imagination.” Imagine that! The Party is always talking about how they meet us in our imagination, which is part of Intellect. Einstein did actually say that imagination was more important here than what we knew.
Looking up “imagination” the most thrilling definition was, “the ability to deal creatively with reality.” In other words, the ability to be original and expressive in dealing with the issues of the world around you.
And isn’t that what all this work with the Party and the work has been about? Is to help us honor our authentic selves and then articulate who we truly are. We’ve learned to challenge ourselves to see the world differently—sometimes much differently than the voices of culture around us and inside us want us to see it. Those voices of culture include our subjective ego that wants to diminish us.
So too these lessons in transcendence are challenging us to look completely differently at our everyday lives.
So, “creative transcendence” builds on the pragmatic lesson that this an action and not just thinking or talking, then redirects our thinking into the imagination part of our Intellect, away from the ego. And while these are both parts of Intellect, they have two different functions, the ego and the imagination.
The dictionary defines ego as “the personality component that is conscious, most immediately controls behavior and is most in touch with external reality.” This is such a beautiful definition of ego, I think: “the personality component that is conscious, most immediately controls behavior and is most in touch with external reality.”
That fits with our idea that free will is part of ego, which is what makes it do dangerous. Decisions are made from that place. Psychology defines the ego as “the part of the mind that is responsible for analyzing our reality and affirming our sense of personal identity.” In the work that we’re trying to do, we’re constantly redefining reality based on creative ways of seeing things. That’s what this work is about.
But ego so often is constrictive. It’s so often subjective because it also speaks the voices of culture that are programmed within you. More often than not, your ego will tell you that you can’t achieve something, or that a goal is too hard to get it thereby the ego diminishes your creativity.
So, imagination, however, is about opening the mind to all kinds of possibilities. Think about kids. They don’t care if what they create is feasible. They just naturally create, because their egos have not had a lifetime to define them and to be self-limiting and program in those voices of culture.
So creative transcendence is in essence about maintaining an intellectual openness—an uncluttered mind—in order to hear the messages of Intuition.
I believe that Intuition is not just here to tell us how to deal creatively with every moment, which is what it’s supposed to do: giving you the next most advantageous step based on what’s for the good of the whole. So, you know that’s got to be a creative process that only God can figure out. Huge, the voice of God within you.
I don’t think it’s just that. I think it’s the root of creativity: that self-creation of our intention to be human, of our gravitation wave, of our physical body and the universe we experience, and the spinning string and the Human Intention—this whole, big operating system that we are.
I think at the root of it is the voice of Intuition, that all-knowing voice, forever pushing us to create what is best for the good of the whole. This voice knows so much more than our ego ever could. Part of that is not subjective, it’s objective, that the ego’s role is to define reality. So it has a very important function. But the ego in charge throws that all off and closes down creativity.
Because Intuition is constantly generating images and ideas about what that next step could be. And there’s so many of them. The infinite possibilities that we hear about and talk about are there, being generated from within us to function. Not just thinking about, but taking action about. How are you going to put that creativity into action? In this particular corner of the universe where we practice Conflict REVOLUTION, it’s about changing the nature of our conflicts so to have a profound effect on the world around us. So we become that change.
In working with this transcendence so far, I’ve most been applying to my activism and my political life. Probably you all know, but I’ll just repeat that it was about 2011 that I was drawn into a fight to stop a big iron ore mine from being put in my neighborhood. From there, somehow as I manage to do, I was in the right place at the wrong time, or the right time, and I was part of whistleblowing at a Supreme Court election.
It went on and I got—not transcendent about it. I fell into allowing my body to be traumatized by the evil that I was actually facing. Because when I would go to the hearings and see these people who were making decisions for the good of the very few at the expense of all the rest of us, which is Einstein’s definition of evil, I would physically get sick being in the room present with them. So, there’s a toll that it takes when we stand up in that way.
If you are not really transcendent, it will take you down. If you’re not evil, that’s what that energy does, it pulls you into the sickness and it wants you to engage in the sickness and it destroys you, too. That part of our ego and our voices that naturally are within us—you know the spectrum, Jesus to Hitler—we got the whole programming in there. Because of that, our job is even more important than ever to not allow ourselves to become that very thing that is so frightening to us.
I’ve noticed in these weeks that we’ve been doing transcendence, or however long it’s really been going on, that I have a much freer relationship to what’s going on. I put myself on my deathbed and I am looking back and thinking, “Don’t worry about that. Don’t spend your time worrying about that. So, it’s sort of like time traveling—time traveling to my future self who is going to tell my real self—you know what I mean … it’s a crazy process but it helps. Because I can instantly, from that deathbed place, see what you just don’t need to attach to.
All of it’s not real anyway. Only what’s real is what you decide to do, the decisions that you make, the energy you decide to put out, how you use your intention—those are the only things that are really going to be mattering in that moment because that’s what you take with you. So you want to be as much love as you possible can now.
But how does that love look when you’re facing evil? That is the age-old question. Thinking creatively about it is part of the solution. I was sharing with Robin the other day how my activism had changed once I started to really work Conflict REVOLUTION into it and start to detach from it. I still was not doing too well at that. I was starting to detach, and I realized I had to use different language. I’m going to post in the notes a video clip of the first press conference I did after I did a big Revolution about the owners of the mine and the governor of the state. They were evil. They are evil, but when I tried to go at it and fight it [head on]. I got very sick.
When I stepped away, and the more that I stepped away, the more that I saw what I really wanted to happen come about, in fact, in better ways than I could make happen. It doesn’t mean I shouldn’t have stood up and done everything I did to stop the mine. It just means that when I went home from the rally or when I went home from the testimony, that I didn’t have to lie awake at night terrified and obsessed about a possible mine ruining Lake Superior and imagining all the horrible things that were going to happen if that happened. And yet, putting myself in that place was what made me get up and want to go do those things I did to stop it.
Within all of our battles and our struggles, however we’re facing them, our self-care becomes even more important. Even more important. Not just the physical self-care but the mental and spiritual self-care, that we do this pragmatically. We make it an action. We don’t just think about it and talk about it like I did for the first year and a half that I was engaged in politics. I didn’t even talk much about Conflict REVOLUTION.
But when I started doing it, the mining company left mysteriously one day years later. And today I’m finding the same thing. I woke up today for the first time excited as a political activist. Seeing the country—seeing all these colors and these women and immigrants and old people—everybody standing up to say no to what I’ve been fighting personally for the past nine years is the corporate structure.
And to see it sweeping across the country and see what the evil constructs are doing—the news agencies who predicted such horrible things [about Bernie Sanders], everything is crumbling as the people stand up and give their voice. I can die happy now. It’s not the end of the struggle, but to see that is constantly what happens when I do Conflict REVOLUTION. I’m not going to say, “because I did Conflict REVOLUTION that happened,” but I know that when I do it, I see more and more of these things happening.
That’s this new attitude I have for my life. When we get to the end, when we get to our deathbeds, and we’re looking back, I think that’s such a powerful place of perspective and time travel. Every time that we stay in love, even if it looks like we’re losing the battle, every time we stay in love and we stay in our pragmatic transcendence, we win. And that’s what we’ll take with us in the end.
So, we are recording, and it is indeed February 23, 2020. 2+2+3+2+2=11.
A nice master number. I am in Lake Superior. Today it’s a beautiful sunny warm almost Spring-like day here. Still a lot of snow. Everyone else is scattered about the Earth listening from various places.
I would like all of us to take a moment to inhale together and then exhale.
Before we call in the Party, let’s all of us join hands and remember that this non-physical network that we’ve created for ourselves is very real. Today we have the honor and the privilege of sitting not just in that non-physical energetic space, but we get the privilege of having physical bodies that can hear these words and allow our minds to open and ponder all kinds of possibilities.
We will command that only the most divine light shine down upon you at this time and that the greatest good be present here.
We are so happy today. We’re so happy to be here with you on this occasion where so much is being brought into balance. We told you, we warned you in the beginning of the year, that this was all about people finding their balance. This is not something that some angels from the heavens came down to make happen on the Earth. This is a natural reaction to how matter manifests.
In other words, when you oscillate to the right, you oscillate to the left just as far. So this is a natural movement that’s found in nature, but it seems so extreme because things in your world are so very much out of balance.
We are working with you and humans around the world in our own ways to help bring this planet into balance. Like our teaching for decades with you have indicated, when you begin with yourself, one person at a time, thoroughly each person taking responsibility for their thoughts, their emotions, their intuitions, their physical body, their decisions, their intentions. Each person begins with self, one person at a time, and then you have systemic change.
All those many years ago when we started to preach about systemic change and draw in the appropriate players to take part in this research experiment of how to be the change systemically, we did that hoping, knowing, that the only way to get from Point A to Point B was not just one straight line. That getting from Point A to Point B could very well be a very crooked and messy line.
What was absolutely essential was seeing Point B. Because if you can vision Point B, where you’re going, imagine it, now you’re tapping into your imagination in your Intellect that is allowing you and your consciousness and perception to time travel within the non-physical.
You may not be taking your body with you or you may not be waking up in a different body. But your consciousness is traveling to what is an imaginary place at this point, because the future hasn’t yet happened. Your visioning it and you’re staking that claim in the ground. It’s your vision.
You don’t just think about it. This isn’t just about a thought process or something that’s contemplative. This is about becoming that energy of the person that you are in the future at Point B. That’s a simple, time travel, into-the-future thing. Because there are so many potentials, there’s absolutely no reason why you can’t organize that vision around something that’s feasible. It doesn’t mean that you’re absolutely going to manifest it. It just means that if you’re absolutely going to get it, it absolutely has to be there in the future. Otherwise you can’t get there. That’s the importance of this ability to have this creativity that leads you to Point B.
The other thing is that, when you’re going from Point A to Point B, things happen along that journey that are so important to your health and your well-being. Every good thing, every bad thing, every challenge, every bliss that you’ve had has shaped you into the person that you are. You’re continuing to shape yourself. In fact, shaping yourself is a part of your mission here on an everyday basis—an action-oriented operating system that operates everyday wherein you are in charge of all of these things that you know you’re in charge of within yourself.
In the idea of creative transcendence, we’re kicking it up a bit. As Barbara had been saying, when you do this process, you effect a change in how matter manifests, whether you like it or not. You don’t control that change. You don’t do this so that your husband will stop beating you or for something outside yourself to quit happening. You do this because you’re committed to becoming the change. You do it as a rule because it’s the right thing to do. And it’s the most powerful thing to do. It’s self-care.
Then you get an outcome that is generally greater than you yourself would have thought of or could have orchestrated. It only goes to reason that if you are seeing these changes in your immediate microcosm of your personal world, then you are also effecting a change in the bigger world.
In bringing balance, think about a ship in water. One end of it—big waves—the right side is going down and the ship is tilting way up on the left side. Then the wave changes and the right side is now going up. There comes a time when they’re even again and the right side continues to go up and now the left side goes way down.
This kind of wave can be ridden. When something is going down, you can be leaning up. When something is going up, you can be leaning down. It isn’t just that you are subjected to these cruel incidences, it’s that you are here to ride that wave. What an exciting time! You’ve come to do that.
In tapping into your creativity, it’s really more about getting out of the way and creating control of your own Intellect. Imagine the Witness is looking into your human brain, seeing all of the thought processes going on. Over here in this corner, there’s all this imagination going on. In that corner, there’s all of these other ideas and all their potentials. Over there is the voice of Intuition bubbling up like water in the desert or a gold mine.
Then over here is this little army of voices that are constantly trying to shame you and put you down. That army is a natural part of the functioning of the human being. What isn’t natural is when the ego army gets in control and starts making decisions that override what Intuition tells you to do.
So we’re looking at your brain—we’re opening up the top of your head like a little toy chest. We’re rearranging the little soldiers, putting some over here, opening up space for all the fun stuff to happen. Also, you are working to diminish all thoughts as much as you can and to listen, this active listening, like the big satellite dishes pointed at the stars that listen to what’s going on out there. That’s how sensitive you can be in listening to the creative thoughts and ideas that are swirling around you at all times. Then you see that little army of ego-marchers trying to ruin it. Just keep them little and diminished. Love them from afar. Pretty soon they get tired and give in the more you can train them to give in. They’re still going to be there. They’ll want to rise up, but the Greater You is working to rise above the mechanism and function independent of what’s going on in the Lens.
When you bring that into a meeting or family gathering or whatever true physical experience of conflict you’re having, when you bring that transcendent understanding with you, you affect a change on the whole system. It isn’t just an isolated shift in you. Your ego may tell you that, because it’s always trying to diminish your power. But it’s not true. You have a much, much greater effect when you let go—you’re transcendent and you let go of the outcome. You’re on your deathbed and you already see how it turned out: absolutely how it should have. You went on and you learned more.
Because that’s the hidden battlefield. You can see people walking around who have smiles on their faces who seem to be successful, don’t seem to have problems, whatever. Every single human being has a battlefield in their head. Every single one. Those who have brought to the battlefield the Buddhas and the Jesus’, those who study and strive to be that way, you’ve brought so much more peace to your inner life.
But that battlefield is where your power lies. The more that you distinguish in that battlefield which is the voice of culture hammering you inside (the hidden battlefield that everyone has), the more you have the power to rise up and face down that voice to the point where you’ll become detached from it because it’s just so not true. But what happens when you’re triggered and pulled in and hurt by those things, there’s something in you that needs your attention. And that’s a gift as well. So how can you say that’s a mistake?
This creativity and this creative transcendence can help you find different actions to take in situations where before, you were afraid of how you might respond because you’re triggered by someone. You all know that feeling. You get afraid and obsess about it. You think about it a lot. You over think it. You breathe a lot. Then you have to face the person and the situation.
Bringing this energy of transcendence to that space completely erupts the whole situation into alignment. Our goal has been to get you to align to compassion, to feel and breathe all of your feelings up into your body and have the capacity to listen to what Intuition is going to tell you to do. Then have an Intellect that is so trained to function this way because it’s the epitome of self-love that it does what Intuition tells it at any given moment.
That has been our mission. When humans operate that way, they are so many things, what come to our mind is servants of God, helping the evolution of the entire human species, bringing science and spirit together into a new truth, a new reality that is inclusive of all science and spirit together.
This is what’s happening on the planet. You are a part of it. Having this creative transcendence means when you’re not attached to the outcome of something. Your ego is quiet and you’re much more prone to listen to Intuition or see what the imagination is trying to say: “Try this.” “Take this tactic.” Thinking strategically about how to create what’s for the good of the whole instead of just being reactionary or being rehearsed, you’re in the moment, ready to see, maybe there’s something going to happen creatively within that you can’t think of right now. So, you just have to be ready and listening for intuition.
This is the way we bypass knowledge. You don’t need to know everything. Because the Greater You already does. The voice of Intuition knows everything. It’s not going to explain everything to you, but it knows it. Your job is rechanneling this transcendent energy into the imagination. Don’t let the ego get a hold of it and get in there and start that battle. You have that power within you, everything you need to train and control that ego.
The biggest impediment that ego is going to do is to keep you from self-love. To keep you from rest when you need to rest. It’s going to drive you with guilt to go farther when maybe Intuition is saying, “Stop here.” And it has the power to do that. Ego has the power. It’s why the world is a bit terrifying right now, because people have no idea how much the ego is driving everyone when they are attached to an outcome and so sure that they’re right.
Don’t be those people. You are this new breed of psychological humans who have quietly, without a lot of fanfare, been picking up your power and changing your own lives, imbuing them with more love, consciousness, and more intention to work for the good of the whole planet right now. Because the whole planet needs you.
When you look at how people are standing up all over the world, you have to feel a part of that network that we’ve been talking about. These are the people who love themselves. They love each other, they love their communities and they’re not going to sit back and let themselves be destroyed by that evil. They’re coming together in love. This movement that is sweeping the planet right now. It’s such an exciting time to be there. We’re so honored and grateful that you people have been listening and working to be the change.
Part of our intent is to bring the message from the Party that, if you could see what we can see, you would be on your deathbeds about to implode with transformation. You would see that Point B was arrived at. It took a long journey to get there. But those of you who hold that vision in your bodies, Point B is a world that is sustainable.
For all of you, Point B is the same. It’s the self-love that’s overflowing in you and the bounty, whatever that means for you personally. Because this is no longer about money. It’s no longer about the need primarily to have money. When you get to Point B, it’s not that there’s not money, it’s just that you have so many other priorities. But if you’re self-sustainable, then you have enough money.
More than anything, you have an operating system that is regenerating creative outcomes for you. And you have a choice: are you going to work within that operating system or are you going to let ego buck it and become the oppositional aspect that takes over the whole system and drives you right off the cliff? Ego will do that.
Taking the long view, this is all about you coming into alignment with compassion. These are the lessons that you as humans have to learn. You’re going an absolutely beautiful job of it. There are generations now because of all you who are listening who are going to receive these gifts as well. Because you are changing on such a rudimental level that you change the DNA of your entire species.
This day in February 23, 2020 is just another shining example of what the power of love can do. And never forget that. The power of love, the power of compassion, therefore the power of your own intuition. The power that you have to step back and get to know yourself through these new, creative definitions, going back to what Barbara was defining for you. Every day you have a chance to re-define yourself and re-define the world.
Our suggestions are basic: reducing judgements. Reducing judgements is a very simple thing that you can do that will go a very long way. Once you get into a habit of reducing judgments, you begin to see how judgmental that you are. Granted, there are times to be judgmental in terms of judging if something is going to hurt you. For the most part, once you clear out egotistical judgments which are basically just descriptions.
Remember, we are creatively changing all the descriptions in the world. Judgments are just one way to describe the world. Once you remove those, then you begin to see the world with a bigger eye. Therefore, you’re able to hear better for those intuitive creative ideas and images.
Two things will happen when you try and stop judging: one is your Intellect will buck and fight you; and two, there’s an emotion behind the judgment. There’s no judgement about the emotion behind the judgment. But there is an emotion behind it. So, feeling and breathing and releasing that trapped emotion will help to soften the view.
But also, force yourself to look, if it’s a good judgment— “Oh, that is just the best thing! I have to have that! That is the best thing for me! I need to have that!”—try to think of the bad thing. Or if it’s a bad thing, try to think of the good thing. In that way, you start to participate in a process that will naturally start thinking that way. You’ll see something and think, “Oh, that would be great! But boy, I bet it would be a lot of this and that, too.” You just become more balanced. More well-rounded.
Another thing to continue this creative transcendence is, we realize it’s not always fun to have bad things happen to you or have physical pain or terrible emotion. But humor is a savior. Sometimes the aspect in you that really is the last part of you that wants to be amused because you’re in such a funk or it’s been such a terrible thing, or whatever … even if in that moment you are not amused, it still is a, done right—you’re not making fun of somebody, but you’re bringing a humor that you really feel, because you see that whatever this person is going through, they’re going to get through it and they’re just being dramatic—that kind of thing.
So, you do the same thing. All of you do the same thing—you become dramatic. Being able to call upon that humor is going help you go through a long way to help you detach from being in the world, but not of it.
These simple little things, about judgments and humor and always of course gratitude—in the weeks ahead, we want to challenge you to really go further with this. To go further than you’ve been. And that’s another meaning of the word “transcendence”: going above what’s the human capacity. Pushing yourself to go further. It’s part of evolution, the evolution of human consciousness.
As you push yourself to go further, take note of the manifestations that are bigger than you could have controlled. For example, say you needed a handyman. You opened up the phone book and pointed at a person and called. Turned out it was a great relationship, you have a handyman for life, someone that you learned to trust. It’s a wonderful thing that happened. That’s greater than you could have thought. Because if you sat down and said, “OK, I have no idea who the handyman is. I’m going to look in the Yellow Pages. I’m going to just close my eyes and just point to one and that person is going to end up being a very trustworthy person that stays with me for a long time.” You would probably never do that. You’d be very doubtful, which wouldn’t be a bad thing.
We’re just saying to creatively change the way you look at life. Remember, “creative” is about originality and expressiveness. Get original. Get authentic. When in doubt, ask yourself, “Where are these things that, really, I couldn’t have thought about and made happen.” Then you start counting them, and you see that life is much more magical than that little army of ego will let you believe, particularly when you’re feeling deep feeling that’s not comfortable.
When you break that trap, that attachment that ego has to those feelings of sadness or anger or physical pain. Nobody wants to feel any of this. Nobody wants to go through any of this. But you really also don’t need that army of ego voices trampling all over you while it’s going on.
Getting that all in alignment to compassion, every minute of every day gives you an opportunity to have this Witness witnessing your life, getting used to having a multi-dimensional operating system. It’s not just your body, it’s multi-dimensional. There’s a whole bunch of different parts of it. The body is certainly the place where the ego and all the personality are defined but it’s a great big operating system. Bring it with you everywhere you go.
When you’re falling asleep at night, think about Point B. Think about it in your body. Be a child about it. Don’t let that ego tell you it’s not feasible, or don’t get your hopes up. Be that child and say, “You know what? I can’t get to Point B if there isn’t a Point B. So, I’m going to go to Point B in my time travel. I’m going to live there for a while, breath it in, and draw myself to it.”
Also, that part of you can give you some good advice. It’s already been through that long journey from Point A to Point B. You’re now really working your multi-dimensional system by taking the advice of your older, wiser self. It’s a beautiful connection.
These steps that you’re taking, they will impact your life. It’s scientifically impossible for this work not to. We are excited because more and more, all of you can consult with us and have such an open relationship with us. You don’t need Barbara. But when we do come together and you hear this voice, it’s just a confirmation that everything you know that you yourself have a relationship with all of those in the non-physical who surround you.
These are indeed very, very exciting times for all of us. And with all of this said, we will open for any questions or conversation.
