Because we each have a different perception, we are each
creating memories. What do memories serve for us and the Source?
EQ: Very interesting. Well, if... Everyone here knows that memories are flawed, correct?
EQ: Even if thee think thee have an exact replica in thy brain of what occurred, what thee have is an exact replica in thy brain of what thee perceive occurred plus all thy feelings that changed it. Dost thou understand? Consequently, memories for the Source again provide data, not only on the actual events but also on the re-focusing and the ways that it has mutated. Dost thou understand?
EQ: What it does for the individual is show them very much how they view life. For when thee are asked to remember, if the majority of thy memories are painful then thee need to look at what thee are doing with thy life. For thee are perceiving so many things though pain-filled eyes, and these are the eyes that thee will continue to see with. When instead thee can learn to bring up the beauteuos memories, for they're as omnipresent as the others, remembering perception. When thee become very good at those being thy first memories, thy perception, then what dost thou think thee create from that point? So it is a wondrous gauge on what thee really believe and who thee really are, is it not?
I had asked you the last time, that before we became this human form, when we were all collectively with the Source, that we already knew what we were going to be doing right now, we just had to experience it, right?
EQ: Again, thee are still with the Source.
EQ: Thee are dreaming. Thee are dreaming "Martha". Thee are dreaming this whole thing. It is an illusion that thee have ever left the Source.
I understand that. I get that part, but what's the point in a memory, because we never left!
EQ: Because the memory, just as we said, the memory tells thee where thee are in thy illusion.
EQ: If thee have a dream and in the dream thee are being chased by a rabid dog, then thee can change that dream. Dost thou know this? And thee can make the rabid dog a friendly little bunny instead, is this not so?
EQ: And this shows thee that thee have power over thy illusion, is this not so?
EQ: Well thy memories show thee where thee have or have not power over thy illusion, doesn't it?
Yes. All right! Ok.
I have memories of this man sitting next to me, who's very special to me, from a long stretching, and more of knowing than of memories, and of an entity named Jim that's on the planet currently and I'd like a better understanding as to what those memories and knowings, as I would choose to call them, are?
EQ: That could be a number of different things. It could be that... Remember we said there is such a thing as telepathy but most humans have forgotten it?
EQ: Thee could be telepathically linked. It could also be that thee are meeting this entity upon what thee would consider to be the astral plane, what thee consider to be a different plane of existence in which thee can go and talk and interact with entities that thee are not currently associated with. Dost thou understand?
EQ: And also, it could be someone's past or future life memories.
That's what I feel.
EQ: So it could be any of those and there are multitudes of other things, for what thee need to understand is that if thee have never left the Source and this is a dream, thee are dreaming many dreams, all at once.
And we have control over that just as much as we do in the dream that's in the dream about the dogs and... Right?
It's really fun when you get that.
EQ: And that's exactly what it's supposed to be!
It's fun, right?
EQ: Yes! Because humanity takes this dream too seriously and they worry about what's going to happen in the future of that dream instead of saying, "I can take care of that: Ok, you're a bunny!"
Right, right. Because their perception is otherwise.
EQ: Because they choose to have the perceptions that things are being done to them, not that they are in charge.
It's all about the experience?
EQ: Yes! And what thee do with it.
So if you only remember certain things about people that's because you only choose to remember certain things?
EQ: Absolutely! Dost thou think that thee did not take in the totality of that person?
I have two brothers that died when I was young. I only remember certain things about them, you don't remember everything.
EQ: Oh yes thee do! That is a misnomer. Everything that has ever impacted upon thee is firmly planted in thy counsciousness but thee choose to bring up those memories that thee want. This is why through what thee call hypnosis all these things are brought up. Thee will remember everything, including the color of his nose hairs.
That's not what I want to remember.
Sometimes we have a random thought, a random memory. Suddenly John Doe pops into your mind and you haven't thought of John Doe in 5 years. Maybe you weren't particularly fond of John Doe but suddenly you're thinking about him. There's a reason for this, isn't there? Because it's sort of a guidepost or something?
EQ: It could be, there could be many reasons. It could be that this entity just thought of thee. Remember, everybody's linked. It could be that thee have just interacted with someone that had a particular trait in common that thee were not even conscious of.
Or something deeper than that.
EQ: Or it could literally be that it is a guidepost, that thee are falling back into a pattern that thee had when thee were with this entity. It could be anything.
But repeated dreams of an individual that has already crossed over 25 years ago...
EQ: That could be them. Finishing up some work.
EQ: Or it could be thee revisiting that.
I'll think about that.
EQ: Within thy dreams, thee have symbols and nobody can tell thee that thy symbol is the same as anybody else's, for within this room there will be entities that like snakes and entities that hate snakes, is this not so?
EQ: And entities who could care one way or the other: It's a snake. So if you had a dream with a snake in it, to the entity that is totally fearful of a snake it would be completely different than if thee were an entity that loved snakes. So thy symbols are different no matter what. So us telling thee what a particular memory means is totally up to thee and that can change as thee evolve.
Well there's a number of folks who write on dream interpretation and they seem to think there's common symbols.
EQ: And there are what we would call universal symbols. For instance, when anyone thinks about the sun, they think of warmth, is this not so?
EQ: They also may think of growth. If everybody thinks about... The sun is a universal symbol, we are not sure with others. Nothing is coming to her mind right now but there are many. But there are others that entities think of as universal that aren't, like the color black. Within the United States of America, that is an indicator of death. Of bad. But in other cultures it is positive and white is the negative color. So a lot of it is cultural as well. But if thee had a grandmother that thee loved immensely that always wore black, the color black may be exceedingly wondrous to you, is this not so?
EQ: But to another person, who the only time they saw the color black was in coordination with someone's death, that would be a terrible color, is this not so?
EQ: Yes, everything is thy own association. When thee meet someone thee like it's not because this person is necessarily likeable. It's because thee are putting upon them what thee want to see. This is how people fall in love! They have absolutely no idea who they are talking to, they just like something and they decide they are in love and this being is perfect and so they've been with them 10 years. And then everything's wrong! Is this not so? Has the person changed?
Probably not much.
EQ: Your perceptions have!
