I am Q'uo, and am with this instrument at this time. It is a great pleasure and an honor to be with you in this circle of seeking this evening. We feel the excitement in each mind and heart as you begin again that which you have come to do so well, to serve as instruments of the One Creator (as each entity within the creation is) for all are the Creator in one fashion or another, seeking to be of service to allow the knowledge of your being to inform the Creator of Its own being. This is a sacred journey upon which we all travel. And we are so glad to be with you on this journey on this evening at this time.

We are aware that each is eagerly anticipating the type of story that we shall tell through each instrument this evening. We look within the heart of the experience… the journey that each of you is upon at this time. And we see a wanderer with eyes of silver and gold—precious metals in your illusion—but in the higher realms, the images of wisdom and love.

This wanderer has come to earth as a newborn child and has progressed in years, so that it is what you would say a teenager that is beginning to have the feeling of being inspired by energies that are not of the illusion in which it has incarnated. It feels that it has a purpose, a mission, a direction in life to go, and that there is much work of a spiritual nature that it is destined to attempt. This work mystifies this young wanderer, and it considers many times in contemplation what the nature of this work might be.

We shall now transfer this contact to the one known as Gary. We are known as those of Q'uo.

(Gary channeling)

We are those known to you as the principal of Q'uo. We greet the circle again through the body of this instrument. We would continue the story began by bringing your attention back to this young wanderer beginning to blossom in the soil of the plane of sleep and forgetting, as its awareness expands beyond the boundaries which had formerly defined the shape and sense of self.

To where is this awareness going? What is this awareness reflecting back to the wanderer about its own nature and its purpose? This wanderer has no concrete answers, but moves forward nonetheless, its feet placed continually, one in front of the other, with a growing hunger to know, to find more.

In this case, this seeking in these early stages is looking outward, attempting to puzzle meaning from the illusion, from the way the world is, and how the self is to be in this world, and through study of that which may be considered unconventional by your society's standards.

This wanderer reads. It seeks. It pokes its head, shall we say, into different areas of your societal complex and it feels an ache of loneliness. It is not quite sure what it is that calls or what it is that it seeks. But the call is there and the questions continue to arise. and the distance from the former self continues to lengthen as it traverses a disorienting landscape of an in-between place. And onward the wanderer moves.

(We pause to deepen this instrument's state. We are those of Q'uo.)

This wanderer is, relative to the lighter vibrations that it seeks, encumbered by the heavy vibrations of the material-bound identity, and to transition, or shall we say, break free from that conditioning is no easy task. It is no mere changing of belief, for to release the old is, in many senses, to die in order to make space for a new birth.

Your peoples do not easily relinquish those identity forms to which they are attached. Sometimes this transition is made relatively smoothly, we may say; however, often it needs knocked loose, if you will, through the tumult of catalyst which challenges the self and calls the self into question. The wanderer in our story is set to face these challenges and tests that will help it to shed its past identity.

At this time, we would transfer our contact to the one known as Trisha. We are those of Q'uo.

(Trisha channeling)

We are those of Q'uo, and we are with this instrument.

As the one known as Gary has spoken, this wanderer is experiencing what you might call a molting period. Its ego, [its] identity becoming not necessarily necrotic, but releasing its binds upon the entity and slowly shedding, dying off to reveal the true nature of the entity underneath.

The wanderer feels much discomfort with this molt, as one can imagine. The shedding of layers can cause great confusion and discomfort physically and spiritually. But with that release comes a sense of relief, a freeness from—we correct this instrument—a freedom from the binding framework we tend to create for ourselves in this illusion, this compartmentalization, if you will. In many senses, this teenage wanderer is going through a spiritual puberty: a gathering of experience and knowledge, and redefining what (and we speak this with italicized words) this is.

This wanderer realizes that it may be about to begin a journey that could be a—we correct this instrument—an illusion of a desert. The wanderer may acknowledge that this journey of opposition of selfhood (realizing what selfhood is when there [are] no many-selves) can lead to a distancing from those considered other-selves. That experiential—we correct this instrument—that relational desert (this instrument is realizing) simply means that, for this wanderer, this wanderer will realize that the relation is unbounded. For this wanderer is everything.

This wanderer is the Creator. The desert is the Creator. The notion of loneliness is simply that—an illusion of the Creator. So, with those first few steps on that journey, the wanderer has much excitement, much curiosity, but also much faith. For this wanderer is beginning to know its full self: the great I Am that runs through every bit, every morsel of the experience; the reality, as we call it.

This instrument is unsure of the quality of her channeling in this moment and gratefully asks that we leave her to the one known as Austin. We are those of Q'uo.

(Austin channeling)

We are Q'uo, and we are with this instrument. And so our young wanderer, having taken up the mantle of seeking and experiencing a transformation of self-awareness, looks forward upon the path in front of it with a fresh perspective and a renewed sense of purpose and belonging within the world. This wanderer, within its heart, feels a calling. It cannot identify the source of this calling. It does not know where this calling may lead it. But as the guiding star in the desert sky, the wanderer continues to follow this calling.

Upon this path, as this wanderer continues its journey of seeking and service, it will meet many challenges. It may find itself stymied upon the path and there will be moments where this wanderer will feel as though it is truly lost within this desert. This wanderer may wonder whether or not it has simply been traveling in circles, if it will ever find its way home, yet at each challenge that forces this wanderer to pause on their journey, this wanderer will eventually realize that this pause is an opportunity to witness the scenery around them. Within each pause, what first appeared to be yet another barren stretch of desert, eventually this wanderer will recognize the small yet incredible details of beauty.

At each pause this wanderer will recognize that this is not a barren desert. That each challenge that the desert presents is not intended to thwart the wanderer, but is the desert asking the wanderer to recognize the beauty it contains. As the wanderer more and more begins to recognize that each challenge and each opportunity for pause is a calling for the wanderer to pay closer attention to seek more of the beauty within this environment, the path forward becomes clear again and the wanderer may continue on its journey. As this wanderer continues and turns back to see the path it has traveled, it will see walking in step that same young wanderer it once was, ready to offer that fresh, excited perspective of the newly-awakened seeker.

At this time, we leave this instrument and transfer the contact to the one known as Jim to conclude our thoughts for this evening. We are Q'uo.

(Jim channeling)

We are Q'uo, and am once again with this instrument. This wanderer of whom we have been speaking has been through many thought processes, possibilities for its being, and its expressing of itself, and has discovered that there is no right or wrong to its thoughts, but that it is indeed the servant of the One in all that it does, all that it thinks… all that it may ever be.

This feeling of its own nature, being revealed unto it as a product of its wondering in contemplation (its questioning and doubting) is a comfort which is as a fuel to the questing spirit of the wanderer. For it realizes, within the heart of its being, that its very being is its greatest service. For as it is the One in miniature, shall we say, it connects with all about it in a way that opens the heart in unconditional love, so that there is a network of the compassionate being of the One Creator that is enlivened by the wanderer's realization of the Creator within itself and within all of the creation about it.

This realization that it has come by—through much discord, contemplation, and perpetual wondering and wandering—is that which gives it the sense of fulfillment that it has sought. This fulfillment then becomes a gift: a kind of light to the world around it, so that it has the opportunity to be this light wherever it is, with whomever it communicates at any time, without even trying to construct a certain path of service. Rather, the service is the being; the being is the service. This is a realization that the wanderer can share with everyone upon the planet, for each is a wanderer of a kind, wandering from the realization that we all are one… wandering from the reality of this unity.

Thus, the wanderer is able to mirror to those within its realm of influence this quality of unity: the condition of the unconditional love, shall we say. The wanderer then has the opportunity to share this realization with the One Creator in all beings, thereby enlivening each entity's apprehension of this Creator within each in some degree, so that there is a spiraling light-energy that moves in concentric circles, shall we say, to cause a kind of spiritual gravity to energize and awaken those people and experiences that the wanderer may embrace as another form of the Creator and its own other-self. Thus, the ideal of all seekers of truth, all wanderers of one nature or another, is that each helps the other to realize some additional facet of the jewel within that is the One Creator.

At this time, we would like to express our deep appreciation to each instrument that we have been able to utilize this evening. We are most pleased with each instrument's progress, for though you have had little practice in recent times, you all are still at the level of achievement which has remained within you and shall continue to grow as time and practice accumulates.

At this time we shall take our leave of this instrument and this group, leaving each in the love and ineffable light of the One which is all in all. We are known to you as those of Q'uo and we leave you at this time. Adonai, vasu borragus.
