Arkashean Q&A Session -- 132
THERRY: All my emotions are the serial communication because I am human, you know. Since by definition, emotions are reflections of the physical body they're going to be there. But fortunately, they remain in the serial aspects so they don't go into the fabric aspects, so I stay out of serial. When I receive emotions from you, I strip them away from the communication. I don't pay attention to them. Then once I get your communications stripped, then the only thing that is left is the laws of language. I'll process it according to the rules of the laws of language. I don't make a judgment if it's right or wrong, whether it's good or bad. I don't bother with that. That's your problem not mine. Then once this is processed via language it goes some place and I get a response. Where it goes, I don't even try to find out, I don't care. I've stopped trying to find out what's happening a long time ago. It's not worth it. Everytime I did try, I don't even get the same response back. Does it matter where wisdom comes from? So I stopped. Now once something comes in, I add nothing and I subtract nothing. You get exactly what I got and then what you do with it, I don't care. It's your life. The Forces gave life to you to do whatever you wanted. It didn't give it to me to stand judgment over how you behave. I couldn't care less. That's why when you...when you spoke to me about suicide, now most other shrinks around, would be, "Oh, oh!!!" With me, I don't give a damn. My feelings is go somewhere away from other people. Use a blotter, save them the time. I don't care. It's your life, there's no judgment.
ANNE: Well the only reason the psychiatrist cares is because they might run into litigation, problems. The...
THERRY: I don't think that's valid. I can accept that you think that.
THERRY: But I don't believe that's valid. Because psychiatrists have been caring long before litigation came into it. I mean I don't think...I think if a person says psychiatrist, normally there's a big slice of God complex built into that. Whilst with me, there isn't. I couldn't care less. Most of the psychiatrists don't know or don't accept life after death anyway.
THERRY: Whereas with me, it's just like changing your hat or your clothes or whatever.
ANNE: Except for the suicide wish.
THERRY: Well, even then it's still changing your clothes. Hey, if you want to put on rags, the hell if I care! You're the one that's wearing them! And even though you go into the suicide loop and even if the end of your suicide leads...bring you to oblivion, you're still in existence, you just changed your form. There's no end, you can't destroy energy. It's a basic law. You can only transmute it and change its form, you can't destroy it. So, therefore the energy of life is just as eternal. So if you truly believe that, then suicide is nothing more than an error that you ain't going to repeat but it certainly isn't the end. So, I couldn't care less one way or the other.
ANNE: Well, I don't understand...
THERRY: It's not for me to start determining how and what you should experience on your journey on earth.
ANNE: That's not even an expectation. Where I get confused is...and I guess I hear you saying a few things over and over and one of them is, "I could care less. I don't care. Don't let the door..." But...
THERRY: That's dealing with the...that's helping you understand my thoughts in terms of the Devil's Advocate Method.
ANNE: To me that's a given 'cause that's not the...
THERRY: Yeah but you're not the only pair of ears listening ...
ANNE: Okay. I just had always considered it an option, never realizing that you can't rush the bus, which is a new concept.
THERRY: Yeah but you also have to bear in mind that whenever we speak you're not the only pair of ears listening.
THERRY: So while it may have been you that asked the question, that same question is in the minds and hearts of many other people who are listening, so I have to give the answer such that you get what you need but at the same time, they get what they need. 'Cause if I tailor the answer strictly to you only, then it's not going to make much sense to them because you're all different people.
ANNE: Perhaps I need to ask you some things privately.
THERRY: Well that's up to you not me.
ANNE: Well you have to be there.
THERRY: That might help! [Chuckle]
ANNE: 'Cause that's where I'm stuck.
THERRY: Well I don't think you're going to get any answers that are any different. It's simply they may be shorter and they'll be less in it. For instance, ask a question and I will respond to you specifically. Then I will respond the way I would if we were in a public session, you'll see the difference. Go ahead, ask a question.
ANNE: As if we were alone?
ANNE: I don't have that kind of imagination.
THERRY: Alright then, you just ask a question and I'll decide whatever or not 'cause I'm not bothered by it.
ANNE: Say that again?
THERRY: You ask a question, any question.
THERRY: And first I will respond to you as though we were alone. Then I will respond to the exact same question as though we were in public. And then you can see the difference.
ANNE: What's my Arkashean name?
THERRY: Useless information and in that particular case you'll get the same answer in both ways.
THERRY: Knowing your Arkashean name is not going to help you one way or the other. So it's useless. You got the difference. The first was curt, blank, short. The second, I gave additional information, to sort of explain. Ask another question.
ANNE: When I asked you about children you specifically responded as though all my lives were female.
THERRY: That's correct. I did or at least you implied that 'cause I never mention gender.
ANNE: You never mention...?
ANNE: Did I have children as a male?
THERRY: Males don't have children, only have females have children.
ANNE: Well two people have ..
THERRY: Males only sire...
ANNE: Okay did I sire children?
THERRY: I don't see where that's of any importance because your concern is not...Okay I've already answered the first way. I don't see that's important. The second way is, I don't see why that's of any importance because your prime concern is your specific ego as it is man. What your ego might've been when you were male is not germane to your feelings the way they are now.
ANNE: But it might be germane to patterns?
THERRY: No, it's not. 'Cause I don't know of any males...well there are a few...Basically males don't have the same feelings towards children as females do. Males...it's very easy for males to just leave whereas to females...again I'm accepting that there are differences both ways, but on the whole, males can walk away much easier than females do. When nature created both, it gave the female a special type of concern, it doesn't matter if they love the child or not. The concern would still be there. Whereas males [clucking sound] you're just a fart away, they're gone. So because of that difference, your question concerning when you might've been male is not germane to the feelings that you're having.
ANNE: But now I'm confused because you said...now you're talking about feelings.
THERRY: Well feelings is what you were concerned about when you asked the question.
ANNE: I was looking at myself in totality or attempting to look at myself in totality.
THERRY: Isn't that feelings? 'Cause remember, your prime concern when you were asked the question was, you looking at yourself as if you were a coward or if...you stated two possibilities, they were all feelings. So the basis of your concern were all feelings.
ANNE: It was altruism...Was it a sense of altruism or a sense of fear?
THERRY: You used the phrase such as you didn't know whether you were being wise or if you were just being a coward. And those are all feelings. The basis of all those are feelings, they're not patterns.
ANNE: Okay, if I take it out of feeling level and put into a pattern level, I obviously had other work to do that took a priority.
THERRY: Yeah but it's very awfully easy to use work as an excuse to run away from the past.
ANNE: But this is a pattern.
THERRY: If it is true that it is a pattern then you will find it in all other areas of your life too. 'Cause a pattern by definition is all the way across the board.
ANNE: So I always had something else to do?
THERRY: Well only you can determine that. All you have to do to find out if it is indeed a pattern, is to look at your life and if you can find that always you have something else to do on all ...on a lot of other things as well, then yeah it's a pattern. If you can't find that in the whole, then it's feelings. See a pattern by definition is all the way across the board on more than just children. It would be on a whole lot of other things as well.
ANNE: It's very specific to this one. I can't say that it's a pattern. I mean where other...
THERRY: Then perhaps it's not a pattern, perhaps it's just feelings that are connected to that uhhh specific behavior of having children.
ANNE: But it's a consistent behavior over time.
THERRY: Yeah, of course.
ANNE: Doesn't that make it a pattern?
ANNE: I mean if it's not just this lifetime?
THERRY: No! Not necessarily true. If you haven't learnt a specific lesson then the lesson is going to return in exactly the same format until you learn. That doesn't necessarily make it a pattern. It's simply a cause and effect that hasn't fulfilled itself. An example is if you want to learn how to drink water. Wel, I'm not going to turn around and give you sugar the next time because that ain't going to fulfill what you need to learn. If it's liquid that you need to handle, then liquid is what you're going to come in contact with, over and over and over and over again. But just because you're contacting liquid over and over and over and over again doesn't make it a pattern. It simply makes it fulfill the needs of the situation. Does that make sense to you?
If it were a pattern, then many areas of your life, not just one...for instance, people who have a pattern of procrastinating, they'll procrastinate on almost anything. They'll delay this, they'll delay that, they'll delay getting up, they'll delay going to work, they'll delay paying their bills, they'll delay period, 'cause it's the pattern. But if it's one little area, then you can't say that it's a pattern of procrastination, you have to say that it's something else. It's not a pattern. If it's anything that is just in one area only, it's not a pattern. Look at something else.
ANNE: Is what I came up with when you and I were discussing wisdom versus stubbornness, because that in itself is a duality.
ANNE: Right. A duality?
THERRY: No, it's not.
ANNE: It's not?
THERRY: Duality must be of equal poles. Wisdom has nothing to do with stubbornness. The duality of Wisdom is Wisdom/Knowledge. Stubbornness belongs to the Continuum of Change/Mobility.
ANNE: Wisdom/Knowledge is the duality?
THERRY: The Continuum of the Duality ...is Wisdom and Knowledge.
THERRY: Stubbornness is simply a point along the Continuum of Change, but duality is uhhh total stability as opposed to the Martian Syndrome. And stubbornness is just one point somewheres between them.
ANNE: The what center?
THERRY: Yeah that's a coined phrase. Did you ever see uhh the Chronicles...the Martian Chronicles? Oh okay. It's a condition. You've probably seen many people who've had the problem. They change their values and their ideas depending on who they're with at the time. But most of the time they don't have any gumption of their own. That phrase is coined ...has reference to the Martian Syndrome. In other words, they change, they have nothing that is theirs. They adapted to the moment. See that's the opposite point of absolute rigidness and that's the Continuum of Mobility.
[Pause] Forgetting of course that we're using the human mind. Therefore there's going to be a conversion simply by of the nature of language. So whatever you get from me you know is going to be 95% the way I really got it, the other 5%, flip a coin. I don't know exactly how accurate or how far off, how close and in what direction. I don't know and I don't care. I stopped deciphering that a long time ago. If a person discovers something that belongs in the 5% and goes to see, the hell do I care. It's no skin off my back.
ANNE: So don't shoot the messenger.
THERRY: Well it's kinda difficult to continue the conversation if you do!
THERRY: And where's the logic of going to someone because you're seeking an answer to something or a point of understanding and going to war with the teacher because you don't like what he says. There's no logic to it. It doesn't matter who you ask or what you ask, there's going to be a lot of conversions anyway. First there's conversions from the speaker, then there's a shit load of conversions from your own mind.
ANNE: I think I have problems with the information, as I'm believing it, is available and you're withholding it.
THERRY: Oh you got that right! I don't give you everything. I give you what you need.
ANNE: But then my Freewill...if I say to you, uhm, this is what I want and this is what I need...
THERRY: You don't always get what you want and you're the last person to know what you need.
ANNE: Says who?
THERRY: Says the fact that you're involved in games. The only thing you know is what your emotions tell you. And if you read the "What, If, But," you'll discover there is a phrase in there that tells you, "And they wept for want to be freed of their own desires." The phrase didn't get in there because people were justified in knowing what they want. The phrase got in there because it's telling you that if you ever did get everything you wanted, you'd be in deep shit.
ANNE: Be careful what you wish for.
THERRY: Bingo! And from us, you get what you need, not what you want.
ANNE: So you're protecting me from myself?
THERRY: No, I'm not. I'm serving the needs of the moment. I don't care what you do with yourself, that's your life.
ANNE: The needs of my moment?
THERRY: The needs of your moment. You're the source of the question, so I serve the needs of the moment.
ANNE: As the moment...
THERRY: I have no other choice.
ANNE: As the moment applies to me?
THERRY: As the moment applies to you because you're the source of the question.
ANNE: So you protect my moment?
THERRY: No, I don't protect anything. I leave that up to you. By law, I must serve the needs of the moment. I have no choice. That's Predestiny for me. Whatever you need...Remember, everything I do is predicated upon two things - getting you to accept responsibility and making it feasible for you to understand where you are in the Now so that you can handle the tomorrow. Those are the two bases that I serve. I can do nothing else. And even if I could I wouldn't 'cause they've already proven that that's the best way to go.
ANNE: What's already proved that that's the best way to go?
THERRY: History thus far in all the length of time that I've been able to do what I have has proven that serving that is the only way to go. If you do anything else, you create more harm. So by serving only the needs of the moment, it is the place or the spot where there is the least amount of harm. If I were to give everybody what they really wanted... Good lord! I don't do that. For one thing, just how often have you yourself asked questions that you really didn't want to know that, you wanted to ask something else but you couldn't think of it exactly so that came close enough.
ANNE: You're pretty direct.
THERRY: It has nothing to do with being direct, it has to do with the way people think. People don't always know what they really want until it's too late, until it's already past. If it were possible to take back words that were given to you, then there'd be no problems in giving you what you want. You just take back what you're not ready for. But life isn't made that way. The duality that I must serve, you have to take responsibility for your life and I have to find a way via the response to get you to understand the Now because if you don't understand the Now, you won't be able to understand the tomorrow. If you don't understand the Now, nor the tomorrow, how the hell can you take responsibility? And that's what I said.
ANNE: The Now is that I'm right where I'm supposed to be?
THERRY: No, right now you are where you chose to be! Do you understand the difference between the two statements? One is built upon responsibility, the other is built upon it's somebody else or somebody else's fault. It's forces that are beyond my control. So, so long as you have that attitude, it's not your fault. The other response is you are where you chose to be, now you have no one to blame but yourself. It's no longer forces beyond your control.
ANNE: But the negativity is confusing.
THERRY: The negativity is something that you yourself bring into it. You fail to accept the cause and effect relationship with your life. You're the one that makes choices. Those choices have ramifications. If you don't want the ramifications, don't make the choice.
ANNE: Okay, I put myself right where I am.
THERRY: Right. You don't have to like it.
ANNE: I didn't say that!
THERRY: Just simply accept the fact that it is you.
ANNE: I do, I do!
THERRY: So therefore you cannot ...it is inconsistent to say, "I put myself where I am" and then make the statement, "I am where I'm supposed to be." Those two are inconsistent with one another.
THERRY: Because the statement "I am where I'm supposed to be" has the implication that there are forces beyond your control that put me there in addition to your choices.
ANNE: That's not what I mean when I say that.
