Steve: Please join me in welcoming Karen Sutton to our editorial staff. Karen’s blogsite is Cosmic Particles at http://cosmicparticles.blogspot.ca/. We’re happy that she’ll be contributing her commentary here and other articles as well.
Karen: As a new contributor to the Golden Age of Gaia blog, and a virtual unknown among both the staff and readers, it seems appropriate that I introduce myself, to let you into the recesses of my own soul so that you might know a little bit about who this human being is who enters your world via thoughts and words.
I can think of no better way than to share a short story, a metaphor if you will, that’s been important to my own awakening. Perhaps no other piece that I’ve read has more profoundly impacted me – aside from Seth and his “you create your own reality” – than this story from Steve Rother and ‘The group’. Over time this piece has caused me to question my reality more than any other.
As this piece unfolds, there’ll come many opportunities to look out into the world, to see all the horrors and injustices, the disappointments and sadness, and come to the conclusion that what’s being presented in this metaphor could not possibly be. For nowhere in one’s heart can one find any logic that explains these things that feel so bad, and equate them to a game. It’s a dilemma, and not one that’s easily answered.
So I don’t ask you to believe this conclusion about life, but I do ask you to consider it.
What if it’s true? What if we really did come here by agreement, to participate in the creation of something that’s never been done before? What if we are responsible for the set-ups in life? What if you and I and all of us really do know each other already, on some other level in some other environment? We just forgot so that we could deeply delve into this game of “who am I?”
What if we really have done it all, the good, the bad, the ugly, the hurtful, the greedy, the despicable, but also the worthy, the helpful, the loving, the generous, and the caring? What if we really do have all the power of creator gods, we just forgot that we do? What if, when all is said and done, we find that we are those creator gods? And if even a tiny part of that is true, what would Nova Earth look like if we lived our lives from that stand? To me, those are questions worth considering.
With that, I present Steve and The group.
The Game of Hide and Seek
What follows is a description of life on planet Earth. This was information from the loving entities simply know as “The group” through Steve Rother. This was a base of all the information that followed from the group in the messages contained in the Beacons of Light and the first book from Steve and the group, ‘Re-member’. This was the group’s answer to Steve’s question: “Why are we here?”
Let us take you on a journey…….
All of us here are gathered in a meadow at the base of a mountain. We are home and we are all playing together in perfect love. A dear brother approaches and says, “Would anyone here like to play a new Game?”
“What kind of Game?” You ask. “Is it like the ones we play now?”
“No,” he replies. “It is like nothing we have ever done before. It will be an elaborate Game with many props and disguises. We will wear veils so that we can no longer see or re-member our true nature, even the veil will be hidden from view. Then we will start the Game and begin to re-member. This veil will be so effective that you will forget not only who you are; you will even forget home. Even as we pass each other on our paths, we will look into each other’s eyes and not recognize one another. The veil will be so effective that many will look around at the props and disguises and truly believe that is all there is. You will retain all of your powers, yet you will not re-member how to use them or that they are even there.
“The Game will be played in phases and before we start each phase of the Game we may place as many reminders in our path as we wish, to help us re-member. Be advised to place many reminders, for most of you will rationalize them away easily. We will choose the time and place of our entrances and exits on the Gameboard. We will also set up circumstances and lessons we wish to complete while we are under the veil. A tally will be kept and points will accumulate from one phase to the next. This point system will only be used by you to determine what will be included in your next phase. You will not be able to remember from one phase to the next, yet, once mastered, certain attributes may be carried forward into the next phase. You will always carry your core essence and personality, yet you will not re-member that it passes with you through the veil into every phase.
“Humor will always be a reminder that passes unchecked through the veil, and if we find you getting too serious we will tickle your funny bone as a reminder that this is only a Game. There will also be many masters available along the way to help us if we wander too far from the path.
“Oh yes, I almost forgot an important part of the Game… at all times there will be Free Choice. You have complete choice in all matters, you may even choose not to play the Game, or to call in a substitute. You may choose to hide, or you may choose to seek, it is entirely up to you.
“On the Gameboard there will be polarity. This has to do with the mechanics of the Gameboard itself, and will be a necessary component as it provides the contrast needed. However, polarity will taint your vision. Through eyes tainted with polarity, you perceive things as Up or Down, Light or Dark, Good or Bad, Love or Fear and Right or Wrong. Do not let this fool you, it is only illusion.
“We will all leave our higher aspects of ourselves in a special place for the duration of the Game, otherwise the Game would be much too easy. Your higher self will be available to you at all times. Your challenge will be to learn to access it, and to re-member that it exists as part of yourself. You may choose special loved ones to ride on your shoulder to advise you during the Game. Again, re-membering that they even exist will be a big part of the Game itself.
“The goal of the Game will be to see how many can re-member who they are, where they are from, and what powers of creation they have. Once you re-member, then you may re-merge with your higher self and re-create home on the other side of the veil to demonstrate that you have fully re-membered.
“So who wants to play?”
