TRANSCRIPTION 1

 


Woman
You’re ready?


Man
Yes.


Woman
And are you refreshed?


Man
Yes.


Woman
Good. And you’re identifying what you’re wanting?


Man
Yes.


Woman
Hi there.


Bashar
And to you good day. Or if you wish, hi back.


Girl
Hi there, haha. My question pertains around enlightenment. I, you know, study Buddhism and study Hinduism and there’s so much this goal of enlightenment and it’s kind of like out there somewhere and we we we


Bashar
But it’s not


Girl
Right, but there’s so much emphasis on escape of suffering and samsara and my perception and this kind of getting out of the physical realms that we can kind of be our inter-dimensional selves and so I’m kind of wondering


Bashar
The paradox there?


Girl
Yes.


Bashar
Is that to use those terminologies and


Girl
Um-hmm.


Bashar
The way to rise above the terminologies of the suffering of the physical realm is to totally and holistically embrace it.


Girl
Mmm hmm mm.


Bashar
So that it becomes something within you instead of seeing yourself as something within it.


Girl
Thank you.


Bashar
Does that make sense to you? Once it is seen as a part of your human being


Girl
Mm


Bashar
Then you can bring something to it rather than be victimized by it


Girl
Mmm


Bashar
Because the idea of ascension and enlightenment is the recognition that you actually are the dimension of reality that you previously existed in, does that make sense to you?


Girl
Mmhmm


Bashar
When you understand that you are the experience, when you are the dimension, when you are the reality itself then you are free to be that reality and in relationship to it without the part of it without the format of it that makes you feel that you are trapped by it.


Girl
So it’s removing the resistance, it’s removing the pushing against reality by embracing the wholeness of everything that is occurring against it


Bashar
As we have sometimes said and to put it in the most simplest terms, the quickest path to enlightenment is to simply lighten up


Girl
Haha


Bashar
And not be so heavy


Girl
Haha


Bashar
And make everything quite so serious


Girl
(laugh) hhhmmm


Woman
Let us go here


Man
I guess, I’m interested in the large picture, about relationships, not just as far as people go, but also as far as relationship with work and the world and what I would like I, eh, you know, the contrast between these moments of disconnection and connection, whatever the vocabulary of the time, as I said yesterday, between cancer and mustard, and paranoia, to allow the connection to be embraced between and let the joy spill over from my relationship to connectedness with my inner being into my relationship with loved ones to my relationship with my work.


Woman
Good.


Man
Which is uh, what I mean I do and what I want out of my work is to share and to express my feelings and my thoughts about things through painting, and crafts. So what I would like to do now is end the resistance or change some of the anger within yesterday or resistance to the world, all of a sudden shining into the picture and getting what I want and being faced with desire I guess being to pair down things that I want from the world and to be able to allow in a more elegant way the things that I do not want, like making money from my art and allowing the love from my relationship.


Girl
That’s happening on a day to day moment to moment basis. And really, what is happening to you is that by trying to see the big picture, bigger than you can see, you keep feeling a lack of not being able to fit it all together, but by focusing on every one element as it comes up and getting that element into balance, then the next one will be easier and the next one easier and the next one easier. You’re in a much clearer place in this moment than you were just a few hours ago. That is to all of us. Here is one statement that we believe will help you more than any other having to do with the subject of relationships, whether it is an intimate personal relationship or a work relationship or your relationship or relativity to the greater physical world or all that is. If you will think in terms, not of what you are receiving, but put your emphasis on what you are offering, they’re really one and the same, but put your emphasis not upon so much what is coming to you, or what I want from out there, and believe in the pattern sort of clicking into place, that will be very satisfying for you. Right, so. If you can put your attention on what you are radiating outward it will and the benefit it will have for those who are receiving it. In other words, if you find yourself pondering someone or something, and feeling less than good about it, then that moment you will recognize, I’m doing that subject or that person no value at all. We think for you that will be an easier approach.


Man
Well it does sort of feel like this is something I’m used to, and now I need to leave it, deny it, or accept it.


Woman
When you put it in the context of what is flowing from rather than what it flowing to, 99% of the lack you feel will be put back into it. If you are thinking in terms of what you are adding to, rather than what you are receiving from, most lack will go away. Are you hearing us?
We have enjoyed very much this interaction. It has been of immense value to all that is. We’ve enjoyed the recognition that has taken place in many of you and your commitment. We are most exhilarant about that which has come before you. As these words begin to take shape and form in your real life experience, we all make too much of all of this. We talk too many worlds, when we cross too many things. Just feel your way through it. You are perfect beings as you are.
If you never get one more thing done in this physical lifetime, that which you’ve contributed has been quite enough. Your value has been understood, by those who understand value. It is only you, who sometimes does not see the value that you are. If there is ever any doubt about your value, ask your inner being: do you love you? I feel your inner being rushing through you to say yes. There is a tremendous appreciation for you. If there is ever any wonder about who you are, about your value, just sit, and ask your inner being. Inner being, are you aware of me? You will feel the impulse of yes. Inner being, are you pleased with that which I am? And feel the impulse of yes. Inner being, are you excited about that which is coming to me? And you feel the impulse of yes. Inner being, are you aware of that which is before me? And feel the impulse of yes. Inner being are you aware of what is coming enough that you can help me zig and zag through life experience so that you come forward honestly so that I can be of benefit to all that is and feel the emphatic yes coming out of you.

 

TRANSCRIPTION 2

 


Woman
Welcome. Here are a few tips to keep in mind.
Finding some common ground is important. People feel more comfortable in the presence of others who share their interests. More importantly, it’ll create a bond between you that serves as a foundation for your long term relationship. Listen closely and scan the conversation for facts that tie the two of you together, such as mutual friends, common interests, and other common references such as school, career, hometown, or hobbies.
Asking him questions is the best way to draw him out. But make sure the conversation is balanced so you don’t sound like you’re interrogating him. I know a woman who can engage almost any man in conversation, because she knows a lot about sports. She suggests to learn about the local sports teams and players. If you think you can’t get interested, find a player you find attractive or interesting and at least find out something about him. Read a magazine like Sports Illustrated that has personality-oriented articles that you might find interesting. Ask him open-ended questions he can’t answer with a yes or no. For example, instead of saying “do you like your work,” ask “what do you like most about your work?”
Remember, you’re first conversation doesn’t have to be profound or deep. Start off with small talk. And add a little humor to put the both of you at ease. Touch on a few different topics until you find one that he seems to be comfortable with. The purpose of engaging in small talk is to allow the two of you to assess the amount of attraction between the two of you.
Avoid offering too much information too soon about yourself. Don’t offer your whole life history the first time you meet. Remember, flirting is not 101 Therapy. Avoid topics that are negative or just not flattering to you. Never put yourself down. Avoid topics that have to do with your past relationships, health problems, financial worries, and most of all: problems with men. You can deal with intimacy later; at this stage, you’re keeping it light, intriguing your partner, and assessing whether or not you want to go deeper.
People will feel attracted to you if they experience a sense of rapport with you. The following suggestions will increase your rapportwith a man. Pause after you speak and allow him the chance to respond to what you’re saying. Get into sync with him by nodding in agreement with what he’s saying. And notice his body language, and mirror it, by making yours look similar. Each time he speaks, allow a pause before you respond, create a nice, comfortable rhythm instead of talking too fast out of nervousness. Don’t be afraid of silence. You don’t have to feel responsible for entertaining him.
Studies have shown that only 7 percent of what is communicated between people is transmitted through words alone. 38% is the tone of voice. And 55% is your body language. Nonverbal communication is probably more important in the beginning than what you say. When you’re with a man you’re attracted to, you need to get the message across. Use the flirting techniques in the following video. Oh I really like what you’re wearing. That tie is great. I can really tell you know how to dress. I love the way it feels. As you notice. She caressed his tie seductively. While complimenting him on his appearance. Remember, men enjoy being touched, it creates an emotional bond between the two of you that will help him open up. Keep your touch light, you can lay your hand on his arm or shoulder, touch a piece of clothing, like she did, and later, in a more intimate phase, you can touch his face. Don’t be afraid to invade his personal space, unless. His reaction.
Next, Luann will talk about how to use your voice to….
