Desmond and I had a great phone call today Sept 14, 2012.
While he was sharing, I literally got an image (in a way) of a dragon flying along, with billowing air (not fire) going in front of it, that was creating the "reality" that it is moving, experiencing into. I feel that this is possibly a metaphor for who and what we are - powerful beings, breathing our soul consciousness into the totality of the experiences, including the external environment into Being - Manifesting new adventures being recorded by the One consciousness, creator.

Then, as we continued the conversation I had an insight of how simple it is to bring ourselves back from the confusion, distress, cacophony of "external life" as we have been playing with it. As the situations that we are going through trigger what we call, negative, or uncomfortable emotions - we can simply bring our attention back to the physical interface where our breath enters our bodies. We can slow our situation down and begin to notice the breath moving in and out of our nose, or mouth. Then, as the attention is brought to focus on the in and out breaths we can begin to entertain a different set of thoughts. They might include noticing the feeling of the breath moving in and out. Or, it could be to realize that because you are breathing you are alive - and life is a gift. Or, you could try to imagine "how in the world does my breath successfully supply every atom, molecule and cell in my body with the fuel for me to be here experiencing all of this?"
The possibilities can go on and on. Play with it.
Then, you might move your awareness to appreciating all the external beauty that surrounds you. The trees dancing in the wind for you to enjoy. A butterfly. A raindrop. The sunshine. The taste of the air moving into you - or the fragrance of a flower. The wonder of a fly, or the sky, or the piece of pie that you decide to go eat because your stomach is growling.
We are breathing, so we are alive. And life is meant to be fun. So, if you are feeling stressed, or worried, or scared - get back to the truth of the NOW experience. Everything is breathing and this is how life is playing out right now, and it is truly, wonderful becoming.
Here is a excerpt from the book Seth Speaks, by Jane Roberts (and of course Seth) which fully validates that there is a lot more going on here, and our consciousness is simply a vehicle being used, by the breath to create the realities that WE, each of us here, are totally responsible for. We are creating the life we are experiencing, that is, in spite of us believing or pretending that this might not be the case.
"Not only is the entity strengthened, but portions of it, having been actualized in three-dimensional existence, now add to the very quality and nature of the existence. Without this creativity, planetary life in your terms would always be sterile. The soul or entity then gives breath to the body, and to the three-dimensional self within it. The three-dimensional self then goes about its purpose of opening up new areas of creativity.
Entities or souls, in other words, send out portions of themselves to open up avenues of reality that would not exist otherwise. The three-dimensional selves, in existing within these realities must focus their attention there completely. An inner awareness gives them a source of energy and strength. They must, however, come to understand their roles as actors, "finally" from their roles, and through another act of comprehension, return to the entity"
Seth Speaks, p. 53-54 - by Jane Roberts.
Now, this is only a tiny portion of the "reality" of who and what WE/YOU are. This speaks of only one dimension, namely third-dimension, but we exist on many dimensions, although this one is apparently particularly important as we contribute a significant portion of our attentive energies to the experiences that we are having.
Have a nice day All,
With Great Love,
