On January 7th, 2005 Equinox was asked,
If perceptions are so diverse, how do we ever understand
EQ: If we understand what thee have said, thee are asking us how,
if each entity upon this planet perceives so differently from each and
every other entity, how can there be unity amongst the entities upon
this planet. Is this the question?
Yes, understand each other.
EQ: We would say it comes from acceptance. It comes from
thee allowing each entity to be unique and blessing the uniqueness
instead of having such a stake in each entity agreeing with thee, in
each entity making thee appear right because they agree with
thee. Dost thou understand? It is not about being
right. It is about thy perceptions. And if thy perception
is that this is just a rock, but someone else’s perception is that this
rock brings them peace and someone else’s is that this rock brings them
energy, are any of thee wrong?
EQ: Isn’t this a rock that, if thee believe it can do something,
can do it? If thee believe that thee are bad, dost thou want to
bring to thee entities that agree with this or dost thou want perhaps
to see other perceptions? If thee can allow that all of thee see
differently - and when we say “see”, we do not just mean visually,
although, this is true too. For, no two people have the visual
acuity of another. Dost thou understand? Even if thee are
told that thee are 20/20 in thy vision, each of thee see colors
differently. Each of thee perceive only what thee want to
perceive. Consequently, what thee see will not be the same.
Does this have to do with the ego of each person as well as their
EQ: We believe yes. We believe that when thee detach from
ego enough to allow, then thee begin to value other’s
perceptions. But when instead thee are in what thee call ego,
that piece of thee that is about self, then it is very difficult to
allow others to be their self. Dost thou understand? For
thee have a desire that they react to thee in a particular way.
Do thee not?
EQ: When thee are driving down the street, thy desire is that
everyone gets out of thy way. Is this not so? And if
everyone else has that desire, what happens?
EQ: Or everyone becomes angry at everyone else for not meeting
their needs. And this is a selfish, ego-centered place. Is
this not so? But if each of thee allow that all of thee have a
place to go and a desire in being in this mode of transportation and
can share the space equally and lovingly, then all of thee get to where
thee are going in plenty of time, easily and effortlessly. And
this is true of all the steps thee take in thy lifetime. For thee
can make it difficult by always expecting others to yield to thy whims
or always expecting others not to, or just allowing that others have
their desires as well and nothing is right and nothing is wrong, it
So when we were all part of the Source, our perception was all the
same? Do you understand what I’m saying?
EQ: Yes, we understand so we will give it to thee this way.
Can thee accept or even appreciate that each of the cells of thy body
is a free thinking organism?
EQ: Thee can accept this?
Well, I guess I could, yes.
EQ: Because it is true. Each cell in thy body is thinking,
is perceiving and is acting on its perception. But each of those
cells acts for the benefit of the whole. So, the perceptions are
pretty much the same because it is all beneficial to the whole.
Dost thou understand? This is the same as the Source.
But aren’t we part of the Source?
EQ: We are. This is so, but once thee established ego, thee
Is that our mission on here on Earth is to try to acknowledge the
Source as the center?
EQ: No. For the Source is not within you. The Source is
everything. So it is not that thee are separate from the
Source. This is the illusion. It is as though thee are the
Source having dreams. And in the dreams the Source itself is
acting out multiple things, in all these dreams. And it is
wondrous, but it is time, perhaps, to be awakened from some of these
dreams. All thee are doing is experiencing. The Source is
experiencing. And thee are the Source.
When you were saying that we need to not go out there and get our
ego in the way and to when me meet people to not expect them to meet
our needs, then you are saying we need to give up the American-given
right of control, where we want instant gratification, we want things
the way we want them and we want them right now?
EQ: We would say that if thee are to combine the perceptions and
be aware of the linkage and make thy life less stressful, the way to do
this is to allow that there are other ways besides thine and enjoy the
other ways as well. So if this means not controlling everything,
then so it shall be. For thee control nothing anyway. Dost
EQ: Can thee control anyone else? Most of thee can’t even
But you have said that we - our thoughts can manifest. So are
we not in control of that?
We’re not in control of our thoughts?
EQ: Are thee?
EQ: Are thee in control of thy thoughts? Dost thou have any
Because I choose them, right?
EQ: But thee don’t like them. Is this so?
No, I wouldn’t say that.
EQ: What we are pointing out here is how many entities in this
room know that something might be bad for them, we will use an example
of perhaps tobacco or sugars, we’re making no judgment on these
things, but let us say this being, a being in this room, many of thee
in the room, feel that these things are not good for thee. How
many of thee just say no, never, not going to do it? How many of
thee have that kind of control?
So perhaps we’re talking about degrees of control then?
EQ: Everything is about degrees. Is this not so? And
what we would say unto thee is when thee release the need to control,
when thee surrender that thee have all the control that thee need, then
guess what? The struggle stops and thee have everything.
Isn’t it true that when we give up the need to control, our lives
get easier because the universe quits forcing us to do the things we
really need to do?
EQ: The universe never forces. Thee force consistently and
thee put it off on other things. If thee are the universe, then
thee are choosing to have a struggle. When thee stop struggling,
then thee have everything.
And that’s all perception, too. Isn’t it?
EQ: Yes. And we will give an example. We have in this
one’s consciousness a device in which one sticks the fingers in, and
the more thee pull, the more it won’t let thee out. Dost thou
know this device?
EQ: And when thee surrender to it, it just slides right
off. This is life. Is it important to struggle with this
thing that thy finger is in? Absolutely not. It is
absolutely of no importance, but because thee have a strong need to
control, thee will struggle. It is the monkey who puts his hand
within a jar to get the grapes, and because now his hand is filled with
grapes, he is trapped and dies. Dost thou understand?
Instead of releasing the grapes and surrendering and surviving, thee
are all monkeys with thy hands in pots, afraid to surrender, for then
thee may have to give something up. And what we are here to tell
thee is what thee would be giving up is the struggle, not the thing.
How do we better accomplish that?
EQ: We can not tell thee how thee will accomplish that.
I mean as a whole.
EQ: Allow. Be aware. Pay attention to thyself and
what thee are doing to thyself. When thy life is a struggle, ask
thyself what jar dost thou have thyself stuck in. Let go of thy
hand. Release whatever it is thee think thee can not live
without, and thee will discover thee can, and, perhaps, it’s there
