I am Laitos, and we greet each of you I love and in light this fine evening. We are so honored to be asked to join you. What a privilege. We thank you for this invitation. We are always eager to work with new instruments, and this group has been especially able to take on the role of serving as an instrument for upliftment, inspiration, information and the general concepts of seeking the truth that each of you, as spiritual seekers, considers in your daily round of activities, for each here gathered is a sincere seeker of truth. We see how the heart of each entity beats in rhythm with unconditional love, and this, my friends, is key in the endeavor to learn to serve as an instrument, not only for us, those of Laitos, or other members of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the One Infinite Creator, but as instruments of the One Creator itself, for you are all each of that nature, each entity that you meet is of that nature. Thus, when you give love to any entity, you give it to the Creator, you give it to yourself, you give it to all.
And this evening, you asked us to speak through you about the concept of giving, for this is a primary lesson upon your planet at this time, for there are those who have, and those who have not, the materials things of this world, and yet all have something to give. What shall you give, my friends? We shall transfer this contact at this time to the one known as Austin. We are those of Laitos.
We are Laitos, and we are with this instrument. To begin the exploration of this deep and rich topic through this instrument, we look at the two sides of this coin that seem to be in a dynamic interplay—that of giving, and that of what has been called the reward, or the receiving. In consideration of giving, we ask you to consider what is it that you give, what does it mean to give? You may find in your culture that the answer to this question, or these questions, may tend to be narrow, as there are distortions present among the various social systems that you navigate that impress upon each within your culture specific ideas of what it means to share and to give. But, we would ask you to take this concept of giving into contemplation and search for a broader definition. Search for those barriers and those limitations put upon the very idea of what it means to give, and realize that it is not so specific as you may think.
We also ask what it is that you feel you have to give, for your society has also impressed upon you conditions and ideas of what you have to offer to the world. What your world and your culture finds valuable is incredibly limited in the grand scope of the love of the Creator, for within your manifestation the love of the Creator has an infinite number of facets and appearances, and within you, there is an infinite number of ways for you to share that love of the Creator and to give to your other selves.
We turn to the idea of receiving, and the question was asked, “How is giving its own reward?”
As seekers upon the positive path, we believe that you have all felt the deep well of joy within you when you have discovered a genuine gift that you possess, whether that be a talent, a skill, a state of being, a passion, and you were able to share this and give it to somebody who genuinely requested this and appreciates it. The joy that we believe you are familiar with that comes from this sharing is the joy of the Creator. It is a sign that you are existing in harmony with the tune plucked by the hand of the Creator.
And, as a final comment through this instrument, we encourage you to consider allowing others the opportunity to feel this joy in fulfilling a genuine need or request from you. As positive seekers tend towards what they feel to be a selfless and sacrificial path, we suggest that it is innate in the design that any deficiencies you feel may be served by others as you serve others’ deficiencies. There is a complete system in which you may allow others to feel the joy of serving you, as you feel the joy of serving others, and a true bond is formed among all involved through which the harmony of the Creator resounds.
At this time, we leave this instrument and transfer the contact to the one known as Jeremy. We are Laitos.
I am Laitos and I am with this instrument. He is a bit surprised at how this feels. We will give him a minute to calm himself. There are many minutes to give.
Part of what this demonstrated in giving is the rich bounty that all are entitled to. It is crucial not to hold in a defensive manner to oneself. This reinforces separation, fear, and a lack of fluidity so crucial to navigating the third-density illusion. We would have you free yourself from the need to hold on. It’s vital that you attain an awareness of how illusory giving is, as is receiving. These are roles you play to pursue a goal. Take back your focus, and let the giving give itself. Let the receipt of this be a blessing not just for you, but for the magnificent truth that there is no inherent separation that makes giving and receiving meaningful in the first place, so it is all a richly treasured and joyful game.
We recognize how the illusion can take down this awareness, and so giving is something we encourage as an exercise, an exercise at being at once individual, limited, and just as much infinite. Think of how you receive our thoughts, think of what it means to receive them in this most unique circumstance. You can feel this blessing in giving a complement to another and letting the same energy that you feel flowing through you now, percolate through all the mundane events, the tragic and the joyful. You draw the lines that separate these concepts, but you can erase them as well, and we would have you do both.
Be at play. This is, after all, an illusion. Why not take advantage of it? Why not make it a study and let your heart arise from it, recognized anew, recognized in your brother, in your sister, and he who may seem to be your enemy. It is not undesirable for the lines, for the distinctions, to become blurred. It is, in fact, the greatest overcoming of the challenge of the veil to move about it and to let the resonance of your dance in and out of these concepts manifest who you truly are and set an example to others of who they truly are.
We are those of Laitos. We thank this instrument for extending once again, the tiniest bit of trust, and we hope he appreciates it. At this time, we will transfer our contact to the one known as Julie. We are Laitos.
We are Laitos, and we are with this instrument. We have enjoyed this discussion on the subject of giving and receiving. We would like to continue on with some information about your universe that you live in. You may feel limited in many ways, but we tell you, you are not limited in any way. Your universe is full to the brim with infinite possibilities, infinite energy. There is no bottom to the well, so to speak. So, we ask you to give wholeheartedly, and when you are in the act of giving, give with all your heart—let it go and do not expect anything back because you are unlimited, and you are not without what it is that you gave away. When you give with all your heart, you do open yourself up to bountiful receiving, but do not do it for that reason.
Giving can be of the physical, or it can be spiritual. You may give with your gifts of service, your own skills that you’ve honed, that you’ve perfected, and you may give in this way—in a physical way. Giving can also be in a spiritual way. You can give with all your heart a gift of a smile, a warm kind smile, where you shine your light forward to that person. That is such a gift. In your world, that gift can be reflected on and on infinitely to other scenarios as the person who received your warm, kind smile passed it on. If you have nothing physical to give, you can go to a body of water, and cup the water, and give in a gift of ceremony with that water. Your gift of prayers, your gift of kind thoughts towards someone, your wishes of healing for someone, are all wonderful gifts. You can also give the gift of forgiveness, the ultimate gift. We suggest you forgive others and do not forget yourself.
We thank this instrument and we pass the contact to the one known as Trish. We are Laitos.
We are those of Laitos, and we are now with this instrument. This instrument sees an image, an image of the tale of Jesus Christ with the servant upon the hill, receiving gifts—a few loaves of bread, a few fish—seeing all this need in front of him, thousands coming to hear him, but with love taking small gifts to create a gift that grows exponentially. We ask that you think about the way you give gifts as it has been stated: smiles, kind words, acts of love, acts of kindness. See how that something so small, so tiny, so minute in your own mind, in your own framework and your day-to-day tasks can grow exponentially into something so large that bounds beyond, moves beyond a simple interaction between two beings.
Small acts can reach thousands, can reach millions, can move light years, but with that we must stress that, within this density, it’s very easy to get lost in the idea that all must be reciprocated—"I give, so therefore, I must receive”. We ask that you see that your gift to the other self inherently gives back to you. You and the other self are still one. Therefore, the act of giving and receiving are but the same. It is easy in this density to forget that, to see the exchange of energy as a study of cost and benefit—how much can I put in and how much can I get back. But, when you give from the heart, truly genuinely give from the heart to the other self, you forget. You let go of the sense of need and return, and instead, you see that the greater gift was to you to have this opportunity to give so freely to help the other self, a far greater gift ... [long pause] ... all that there is, all that there ever will be, all that there ever was. If one truly thinks on all of that, one can see how everything is a gift. Experience is a gift.
This instrument is unsure if she is currently making sense, so she will lovingly and gratefully let go of this contact, and appreciate it as the amazing, beautiful gift that it has been. We are those of Laitos, and we will leave this instrument and gift ourselves to the one known as Gary.
We are those known to you as Laitos, and we offer our gratitude to this circle for finding time in your very busy Earth days to meet, to link hands and arms in a circle, to open to one another, and allow energy to move from one to the next in a circle of being.
You ask about giving and we might say that there are two paths of giving, but whereas one path gives enslavement, the other path gives freedom. That other path is that of service to others, and in that freedom, the self ... [pause] ... the giving of the service to others path is a giving which, in one way or another, wishes for the fullest expression and flowering of other selves, wishes that the other self could be their truest, highest, and best self, and seeks to support that in their giving, operating in the understanding that to serve others is to serve the self, for as one is uplifted, all are uplifted; as one more facet of the Creator is beautified, so too is that beauty reflected back to the self. Giving is not a static energy, but the continuation of a primary movement that moves all selves upward together. Not to give is to stymy that movement, confuse that movement.
To give is to participate in evolution, but what is it that is given? This has been spoken to and we would iterate again that it is the self which is given. To give the self, more truly and freely and purely, is to not hold on to the self; it is to move ever closer to a surrender and trust in the design of the Creator, for the creation is a gift, and the Creator is ceaselessly giving. There is no holding back. There is no condition. The Law of One is given; it is available, and in giving from one’s heart, one moves closer to this law.
For basic examples of the way in which giving is its own reward, consider the feelings one has in seeing the benefit of the other self. The elation you may feel in helping another out of a difficulty, or the relief you may feel in helping one lift from sorrow. These emotions within you are there for a reason. It is because giver and receiver are forever linked, such that as you help another, you, in a very real sense, help yourself.
And this instrument asks that we move on. We thank each in this circle, and now transfer our contact to the one known as Jim. We are those of Laitos.
We are Laitos and are again with this instrument. We very much appreciate each new instrument’s progress. Each one has been quite diligent in preparing the self by tuning, and then exercising the challenge. These are primary ingredients in being able to serve as an instrument. At this time, we would ask if there might be any queries to which we may respond.
[new speaker] Julie
Laitos, I do have a question, on the subject of catalysts. Could you explain to me how the catalyst works? Do we create the catalyst with our own being, our own actions, our own thoughts, or do they just come randomly? That is all for my question.
[new speaker] Laitos
I am Laitos, and am aware of your query, my sister. Each of you has a primary role in constructing what you may call catalyst, but it is not a role that you have undertaken within this incarnation until a certain point, at which time you are able to manufacture your catalyst, shall we say, consciously. Most entities create choices or lessons to be learned during the incarnation prior to the incarnation. These are chosen because as the soul looks over the entire range of learning that has occurred through thousands of lifetimes in various locations, there is seen that which yet remains to be learned, and thus, there is a certain kind of bias attached to the unconscious mind so that when the conscious entity, which you are during your incarnation, moves through its daily round of activities, it encounters various situations that provide it with what you call catalyst. However, the entity sees these situations as a function of the bias of its own unconscious mind, thus, two entities could experience the same situation at the same time, in the same place, and yet perceive it in totally different ways due to the different biases which each entity’s unconscious mind has colored the catalyst with.
As the conscious seeker of truth moves through the incarnation, and is able to more or less master the catalyst, that is, learn the lessons attached to the catalyst that were chosen before the incarnation, then such an entity is able to create further catalyst, accelerating its personal growth, and moving even further into the realms of the fourth density that is now surrounding and imbuing your planetary sphere.
Is there a further query, my sister?
[new speaker] Julie
No, thank you very much.
[new speaker] Laitos
I am Laitos, and we thank you my sister. Is there another query at this time?
[new speaker] Gary
Laitos, is it possible to shut off that portion of the mind which evaluates your ... Or rather, [is it possible to] shut off that portion of the mind that evaluates one’s thoughts, and if so, is that helpful for channeling?
[new speaker] Laitos
I am Laitos, and am aware of your query, my brother. We find here that there is a dichotomy which must be investigated before a clear answer may be achieved. The dichotomy, as we see it, is that your conscious mind, that part that you have described as the, shall we say, investigator or interpreter of catalyst, indeed may be quieted in the meditative state so that you are more able to perceive concepts such as we send to you or any other entity would send in a telepathic manner.
However, there is a greater portion of the mind that you may call the witness, or the observer, which is always watching, and being available to the discrimination of the active conscious mind. There are instances in which this observer may also become somewhat less present, shall we say, as the deeper levels of meditation are achieved, those levels which approach the trance state. However, in the deeper levels approaching trance, there is some difficulty in perceiving telepathic contact in most cases, unless the instrument is well trained in the use of the trance state.
Is there a further query, my brother?
[new speaker] Gary
Not at this time, thank you, Laitos.
[new speaker] Laitos
I am Laitos, and we thank you, my brother. Is there a final query at this time?
[new speaker] Gary
Laitos, this may be impossible to express, but if the trance state is the threshold—the bottom level threshold for conscious channeling—then is it possible to identify, if there were a scale, how far above that bottom marker our present channeling is operating at?
[new speaker] Laitos
I am Laitos, and believe we grasp your query, my brother. This is a realm in which each entity has a particular potential for utilizing the trance state for whatever purpose may be desired. Most entities have very little potential, though there is always some potential, and may be developed by practice. The level of trance where concepts telepathically transmitted would be difficult to perceive, are the deeper levels of trance where the entity is nearing what you would call the sleep and dreaming state of consciousness, that of the delta and into the theta range.
We also would add that there is consideration that must be given to the purpose or the desire of the entity entering the trance. This would allow the entity to remain at a functional level of trance if it were practiced enough at being able to control its movement into trance. Again, this is quite an advanced capability and for most entities is not a possibility.
At this time, we shall take our leave of this instrument. We would thank each most heartily for being such willing students with such open hearts, minds, and desires to serve. These are your greatest assets my friends, guard them well, exercise them often, and give praise and thanksgiving for them. We are those of Laitos. Adonai vasu borragus.
