The Gifts of Experience
Most people in the world, when reading the title for this article, would think that the writer was talking about what makes up their present lifetime. In other words these people are only cognizant of linear time. These people would not be inclined to be spiritual people because a spiritual person has a different understanding of the past, the present and the future. Spiritual people have an understanding that the past, the present and the future are all occurring at the same time. The Continuum is the descriptor that is used to denote the concept that the past, the present and the future are all occurring at the same time.
When the writer first read about the continuum in “The God Books” scribed by Celest and David, the writer had to exert a lot of effort in the attempt to get his head around the idea of the continuum. And some readers, after reading this article, may deduce that the writer still has a ways to go. So be it. But, I am still going to tackle this article in the attempt to help others to maybe better understand the concept of the continuum and some of the implications of the concept that maybe they hadn’t thought about before. I have mentioned in the past that I get “nudges” to start writing about many different subjects and in the latter part of February, very early in the morning, I got the nudge to write about the past, the present and the future.
For now let us just agree that the continuum is working for us as described in “The God Books.” The average person living at the present time, who believes that the previous statement is indeed true, still may not have a full understanding of how the continuum affects them. In other words, there is no apparent change in how this person goes about their daily life with or without the knowledge that the continuum exists. They just may accept that what was presented in “The God Books” was indeed fact because “The God Books” are just that; God’s words to all of us. God has taken the time and effort to write books through his scribes, Celest and David, to provide us an education that is not available from any other source in the world. And God did this because “God loves each and every one of us”.
First let us take the word “past”. Most people would think in terms of a year or two or maybe another time frame when they were younger and some may be even thinking about what occurred in their previous lifetime prior to this present lifetime. All of these thoughts are true, however somewhat limiting in scope if one forgets that the past would include all of the lifetimes that your Soul has designed, for its present personality (the reader) and for the multitude of all other personalities that your Soul may have chosen for experiencing life in the physical in the thousands of lifetimes that each Soul has experienced life in the physical. In other words, all lifetimes, everywhere that your Soul designed life plans for experiencing. And these lifetimes would be on the Earth Star planet and potentially on any planet in any of the Universes in the Cosmos. So, the past includes all experiencing whether one is incarnate in the physical or disincarnate while existing in a Nirvana type of setting.
But many would not consider what happened ten minutes prior to beginning to read this article as in the past, but it is. In fact what occurred twenty seconds ago is in the past. Now why is the writer so fixated on establishing the past? Because it is a demarcation point that is very important as to how we live our lives. Sound confusing? Yes it probably is. Unless one considers that when events occur that might not be the most optimum use of a person’s time in this lifetime, this demarcation point can be very significant. Remember what God has told us many times in “The God Books;” “Let the past stay in the past. Acknowledge that the event, thought or words spoken occurred; forgive yourself for any less than ideal occurrence and then let the past stay in the past.” And that means anything that would qualify as an event (action), thought or words spoken. Now don’t be naïve in thinking that this is surely an easy way to get out from under those actions, thoughts or words spoken. Since God has said that He is always with us at all times, He would know very well what your intent is at any time. So that would mean that it has to be a sincere effort, both in forgiving yourself and in letting the past stay in the past.
We see that the past covers a great amount of time so to speak. The present on the other hand is much shorter and I believe can best be described as living in the NOW. It is what we are doing or experiencing every nanosecond. So why is the writer going to spend any time on the present if it is so short in duration? Because what one does, thinks or says in the present can have an impact in the future for the individual. Now actions, thoughts and words have varying degrees of impact on the future. (We will use the word “actions” to include all actions, all thoughts and all words going forward in this article.) Deciding on what to have for breakfast is a thought but maybe not one that will have a great impact in the future, unless one decides to have a food that one is allergic to and then may suffer from such action in the very near future. So the writer just used the words “in the very near future”. So what does the writer believe constitutes the “future”? Yes, you guessed it; the next twenty seconds and beyond would be a good estimate. The “beyond” probably should be explained also. I believe that “beyond” includes that period of time right up to the time when the Soul joins The Creator after evolving as far as a Soul can. Now that is quite a long period of time indeed.
Some may now be wondering about some actions that could be taken in the present that would limit their options in the future because of such actions taken. And this may produce a negative feeling about such events. But the reader should also be thinking about all the actions that would expand the reader’s future that would include all kinds of great and pleasant experiences. It is all up to you. What you do in the present will either limit or expand your futures. So be cognizant of what you do at any time. Don’t be fearful; just keep in mind that what you do in the present will impact your future. So we can’t change the past but we can be cognizant of what we do to expand or limit our futures. Now I just said that we can’t change the past. And that is what I thought was the case for many years, but now I have gained some knowledge that relates to changing the past.
We know that one cannot go back into the past and change the action that was taken in the past. But I have learned that one can change the “outcome” of the action taken in the past by maybe making “amends” in the present. By that I mean taking an action in the present can change the outcome of an action taken in the past by adjusting the impact of that past action. A very simple example could be if one defrauded a business associate in the past and this business associate lost a great deal of capital. An action taken in the present might be for the person trying to make amends, to present to this business associate who was wronged in the past with a financial settlement that would make the past business associate whole again. Again this is a very simple example just to make a point. Correcting outcomes for actions taken in the past that a person wants to make amends for might be much more convoluted in complexity. It is only meant to give the reader an example of how actions taken in the past can be affected by an action taken in the present that changes the outcome of the past action.
One last thing concerning present actions that can affect your future is that the present actions may not affect your future in this present lifetime, but could have some effect on future lifetimes that your Soul will design. Now those people who are not “into” being a Spiritual person would just scoff at this scenario because they wouldn’t be concerned about future lifetimes since they don’t know the ramifications of the process of reincarnation. Reincarnation still works for the Souls of these people even if their personalities don’t believe in reincarnation. But Spiritual people will always be concerned about their future lifetimes that their Soul designs because each lifetime is but a very small, but a very important segment of the journey that their Soul has been on since the birth of their Soul so very long ago. Each lifetime adds the experiences that the Soul desires.
So we have talked about the past, the present and the future that make up the concept known as the continuum. But we should not leave the subject without mentioning that this phenomenon also produces another aspect that many people may not have thought about or be knowledgeable about. That aspect involves the ability of any personality, that is experiencing a present physical lifetime, to “connect” with all of their past, present and future selves during this lifetime. This ability may be muted or not in apparent existence because of the limited level of spiritual evolvement of the individual. I also believe that there are those personalities who do have a fair ability to “tap” into this source and “find” some answers to questions that they may have. I believe it is a matter of evolvement and training by the individual to develop this ability to utilize this knowledge base.
That being said I believe that everyone has on occasion had information come to them from their past selves, they just are not aware of where the information came from. They more than likely just thought that they had an inspiration that produced the knowledge and didn’t really give it another thought as to where the inspiration came from. I believe that this is the explanation for some of the nudges that the writer gets from time to time. This article may be the result of such an occurrence. Remember in the first paragraph, I mentioned the “nudge” that I got and how this article came into being. A lot of the writing in this article came from somewhere in my present memories but also some of it came from “somewhere else”. Some readers may be thinking that the guides and teachers that work with the writer on a day by day basis are the ones that planted the knowledge into the writer’s consciousness. And I do believe that this happens frequently, but I know that my past selves do implant information from the past into my consciousness also, and on a frequent basis.
Some readers also may be saying at this time that the Soul is also responsible for the messages that it passes along to the consciousness of the individual. So where do you think Soul gets the knowledge from? From its experiences accumulated from past lifetimes that its personalities experienced during lifetimes that the Soul designed for its personalities to experience. That is my belief and I don’t want to imply that this belief is the definitive answer for all readers; it is only my belief. Every reader has the ability to come up with their own beliefs that will also be theirs alone and not necessarily for others.
We have read in “The God Books” that a Soul will many times use the same personality lifetime after lifetime to further enhance the abilities of an individual. This is likely most noticeable in the very young people who have very advanced abilities at their very young ages. The musical prodigies, the brilliant scholars and theoretical thinkers of the recent past and the present are examples of this scenario. Some of these individuals may be aware of where their abilities are rooted, but my guess is that this may not be a common occurrence. But it really doesn’t make any difference because the Soul knows just how such activity comes about. Inspirations, ideas and even dreams, I believe, can be an example of getting information from our past selves.
Some may be wondering why the writer didn’t add the future selves in the previous sentence. Well I haven’t quite got the inspiration of how that works yet, if in fact the personality can get “knowledge” from the future. The most likely way would be through the gift that came from The Creator and God regarding “intuition”. The best definition of intuition that I can give would be that “nudge” that you get that prompts you to rethink the action that you are contemplating taking. Remember what I said early on in this article that the future also includes the next twenty seconds. Well that may be most appropriate in the context of intuition. When listening to your intuition you have the ability to decide not to take the action that intuition is nudging you about. So then within this scenario one could say that one got information from a “future self” to forego an action that would be taken in the present. Make sense? It does to me because the words in this paragraph just “came” to me from somewhere because I had no idea that the words above would appear on the screen as I started to write this article. Sound strange? I believe it shouldn’t be strange to the reader because I also believe that each of us has the same ability to do just that. I have learned that I must always trust what comes to me when I write. The longer I write and trust what comes to me, the more thoughts just seem to come to me. You all can do the same thing if you want to. You just have to trust yourself.
There is also the situation where we may be getting a message from our future self when we get the idea (nudge from your future self?) to look for a new job and maybe move across the country to take advantage of a new opportunity for ourselves and our family. This may very well be how we can get vital information from a future self. In other words we listen to our future self (but maybe not consciously) to take an action in the present which will provide us with options in the future that can be very beneficial to us. Hopefully this article can cause the reader to think about something that they never thought about before and maybe even have another idea about how the past, the present and the future work together as one.
Due to constraints that limit the length of this article, I am not going to delve into the concept that we all have other parallel lives that our Soul is experiencing at the present time. And when one magnifies that concept to include the past, present and future of each of these parallel lives one would literally have a very large tome to write much less just an article. Such an article just touching on the subject would be a subject for a future article that may require a significant future “nudge” to write because right now I have absolutely no idea how to organize and write such an article.
Life at the present time is extremely wonderful and the more you use the gifts that The Creator and God have given you, the greater will be the experience. Yes, there are times when we wish that we didn’t have to be present to observe what is going on in the world, but remember, you made a contract with God to be here and to be an observer of the actions of humanity during this lifetime. You have the ability to be the observer and also to accomplish your purpose for this lifetime.
Until next time, Dave
The God Books – An 8 Volume series of books “dictated by God” to His scribes Celest and David. Within these 8 books are Gods messages/reminders to humanity. These “Gods” books have been “intentionally” unedited. We sincerely believe that 75% of humanity can benefit from having access to the information contained within these books. So please help us help others by spreading the word about these books. We learned long ago we can not, nor should we, do it all ourselves so we are asking for everyone’s help. And, Thank you!
Before we all incarnated here on Earth this time around God reminded us all that He would be sharing timely information “in this lifetime” that IS “relative” to this and all lifetimes. “PROMISES MADE – PROMISES KEPT.”
Salude, Celestial and David
