Choice, the Body Consciousness, Illness and Disease

Good morning.

Today I will begin with some information regarding choice and the nature of choice. Choice is fundamental to your very existence, not just within your focus but in all aspects of yourself as essence. Choice is fundamental to being, it is a fundamental truth and exists in all dimensions and outside of physical dimensions.

Now when you engage a choice, or for that matter when you present yourself with choice, that choice is influenced by many factors. In particular in a focus in a dimension such as yours there are many, many factors that influence your choice. Generally speaking the influences upon your choice can be separated into two main categories, the first one being your preference as it relates to the subject of which you’re choosing and the other being your intent, your intent again being your desires and wants.

For you in focus, the component of preference has its greatest influence. Preference is for you largely affected by your belief in duplicity, by which choice you believe is better than the other. It is also affected by your associations and feelings with regard to the subject matter. The influence upon choice of your intent would then be simpler, for you would in that aspect tend to choose based on which direction you wish to flow, which direction is most conducive to realizing your intent.

Choice, again, is fundamental to essence for in many ways your expansion and growth would be impossible without choice.

Now I will begin a discussion on your body consciousness. To begin, your physical body, that three-dimensional object that you project to represent yourself in a physical dimension, your physical body is like any other object within your dimension, an energy projection of yours, it is generated by your perception. However this aspect of yourself that represents yourself within a physical dimension is obviously special for it is a representation of you within physical dimensions, and in that, you have associated with the physical representation of yourself a body consciousness.

The body consciousness is part of you, it is not in actuality separate from you, it is an area of your consciousness which you have set aside to be primarily and almost exclusively concerned with the functioning and maintenance of your physical body. This is what we refer to as your body consciousness, it is that area of your consciousness concerned with that.

Now the body consciousness to a significant degree functions independently of the other areas of your consciousness concerned with your experiences within your focus. It is however very influenced by your beliefs and your preferences and your choices. It does reflect accurately your beliefs and subjective state, in your main, shall we say, area of consciousness. Again, there is in actuality no division between the two. This apparent separation is mainly for the purpose of explaining the function of your body consciousness.

Now as I have described previously, your body consciousness does directly influence your perception in matters of the physical state of your physical body. And in that, it influences your perception in these matters by using your beliefs and your intents to cause your perception to generate your body according to those factors. It also, the body consciousness, causes your perception, again in regards to your physical body, to draw from the blueprint beliefs that you accept and, as I have described previously, for example, it will use these beliefs to affect the functioning of your body, for example with regard to the effectiveness of medications. Other examples of this would be your beliefs on limitations of your physical body as to what your body can and cannot perform physically. And perhaps of great significance to many individuals, the body consciousness, again through your perception, may generate diseases within your body or it can of course rid yourself of diseases.

The generation of diseases and illnesses in your body come about in different ways. One way in which you may experience disease is through your belief in contagion, that is you believe in the spreading of viruses and germs and other such agents, and you believe that certain of these viruses are harmful to yourself and that you have no choice as to whether to accept these into your body or not. You believe, for example, if you are in proximity to another individual which has a cold that there is a high likelihood that you too will acquire a cold simply because you breathe the same air as they do.

Another method you engage to introduce disease into your body is through expressions of discounting yourself and distrusting yourself. It could also be expressions of dissatisfaction with your life. All of these types of expressions are affecting upon the body consciousness and the body consciousness may reflect these expressions by generating diseases in response. The particular disease which the body consciousness may choose to reflect your discontent with yourself varies, again dependent on many factors, including your beliefs in diseases.

For example, an individual which has a fear in a particular disease, let us say cancer, will then have a propensity to draw those types of diseases to themselves, in particular if they are engaging in these types of expressions that discount themselves. Other individuals which may not have accentuated disease like cancer may generate different diseases to reflect their discontent. Or they may generate no disease at all and instead the expression of discontent will be displayed in other manners such as through their emotions.

Now the body consciousness does not generate diseases as, for example, some may consider a punishment; this is not the case. Again you have to realize that your body consciousness is you, it is not separate from you, and therefore when you engage in these types of expressions that tend to generate disease you are affecting of the body consciousness, you are shaping it, and therefore you are influencing it to generate these types of diseases.

Now, of course, your influence upon your body consciousness also applies to the regeneration of your body, to the curing or healing of yourself of diseases. There is no disease, no matter how severe it may appear, for the severity of disease is a belief in itself, there is no disease that you cannot cure yourself of. However, often times when an individual engages in an expression of disease their attention is closely drawn to it and, as you know, your attention upon a subject tends to generate more of it.

Furthermore, in your society the influence of your medical system and your society’s high regard, shall we say, for the medical system and its belief that doctors and other figures of authority in that profession carry great weight. They are to you quite authoritative and this belief in their authority and the correctness of their expressions and the correctness of their assessment of disease, as to which ones are fatal, which ones you are likely to get, which ones are spreading, plays a great part in the health of your body and if an individual then chooses to engage diseases or a disease it becomes more difficult, perhaps extremely difficult, for the individual to eliminate the disease for not only is there the factor of attention there is also the factor of very strongly embedded beliefs in these medical systems and medical authorities.

Therefore if an individual is experiencing disease a course of action which will lead to the elimination of disease is to first of all realize that the disease is self-generated. This is primary, this is essential in order to rid yourself of disease in these circumstances. Now, of course, if the disease is something quite simple as you may think of it as, let's say a cold, then of course the individual simply engages the beliefs around the cold, for the beliefs dictate that it is temporary and that they will experience some discomfort perhaps for some timeframe, that certain remedies and medications may help alleviate the symptoms and so on. And these too can be beneficial in eliminating the disease and its discomfort.

However in cases of what you would consider fatal or strongly debilitating diseases, serious diseases as you would consider them, in these cases much of the beliefs surrounding these types of illnesses are quite negative in that the beliefs and the medical authorities have established that perhaps there is a highly unlikely chance that the individual will recover, for example. Now it is in these cases then, where if an individual wishes to recover, to eliminate the disease, it becomes essential for the individual to first realize that the disease is self-generated. And the individual should also distance themselves from the negative beliefs associated with that and accept that they are beliefs accept that there are no absolutes.

Now I will discuss the subject of interactions with other individuals for this is a subject area that causes considerable confusion with regard to how you generate your experience in your interactions with others.

To begin, an individual in a dimension such as yours has what you refer to as a personality. Personality includes factors that affect how they present themselves, they express themselves. It would be aspects such as their preferences, their manner of expression, whether it be forceful, whether it be gentle, or some other way, it would be their physical appearance, it would be their beliefs, and other factors that you may associate with their personality. An individual's personality of course can change, it is the individual's choice and in many cases it does throughout the individual's lifetime. However the personality of the individual, the entire personality which includes, let us say, the personality they assumed when they were at an age of 18 and the personality they assume at the age of 65, although they may be quite different, all aspects of that personality are imprinted in the blueprint and this imprint of the individual, the personality, remains even after the individual has disengaged their focus.

Now when you interact with another individual your perception generates your experience in that interaction and it has considerable leeway in the manner in which it does so. I have discussed previously the factors influencing your perception. In particular, when you are generating experience of an interaction with another individual your perception may, and often and does, simply accept the expression of the other individual very closely, or perhaps even exactly, as the other individual expressed. Or at the other extreme your perception may completely disregard the other individual’s expression, in which case you would not even be aware of it.

Somewhere in between, your perception may adapt, reconfigure, distort or any way you wish to express that, modify the expression of the other individual. And then the interaction you experience in that case would be one in which there are elements of the other individual’s expression and they've been modified by you, that is by your perception.

One of the factors your perception draws upon to generate this experience is that personality of the other individual and in doing so your perception will generate an experience for you that, although modified, it will generally speaking be one that is consistent with the other individual's personality.
Now in the previous discussion I provided the example in which one individual chooses to disengage their focus and another individual which has a relationship, shall we say, with the individual that disengaged, but chooses not to experience that, the other individual’s disengagement from the focus. And I expressed in that, that it is possible for an individual to continue experiencing interactions with the other individual even though they have disengaged their focus. And as I have described, part of this experience generated is drawn from the probable paths which the other individual, the one that disengaged, may have chosen but did not for they chose to disengage instead.

Now, there is no splitting of personality, the other individual has disengaged and gone in a different direction. The individual that has chosen to continue experiencing interactions will then, through their perception, generate these experiences. Their perception will generate these experiences based on the probable paths that the other individual might have followed and also on their personality imprint, that is the personality imprint of the disengaged individual, and other elements as well, such as their expectations and beliefs about the other individual. And in this manner the individual may continue to, perhaps for a time, engage in experiences that appear to be from the other individual. And these experiences generated in this manner will substantially reflect the personality and choices of the other individual for it is based on information, information that is encoded in energy patterns that faithfully reflect the other individual's personality and other aspects of them.

Now this is been a good session and I bid you a good day.
