This is part of a page in the Wingmakers material, presented by James Mahu.
Some of you may know of Wingmakers already, to me it's beautiful food for thoughts.
Part of the Q&A discussion:
"Teacher: If you want to bring more light into this world, why will interaction with your inmost self enable you to do so?
Student: That’s just it. I don’t know if it will. It just seems logical that it would. Don’t all good teachers have this insight? Don’t you?
Teacher: It’s true that there are teachers who can switch their dominant realities, and have learned to integrate this in their life without losing balance or effectiveness in this world, but they are extremely rare.
Student: I know this. But this is what I aspire to learn. It is learned isn’t it? Can’t you teach me?
Teacher: No, it is not learned. It is not teachable. It is not acquired through instruction, esoteric technique, or revelatory process.
Student: Then how do those teachers who have this ability acquire it?
Teacher: No one acquires this ability. That’s my point. No teacher within a human instrument on earth at this time, or any previous, has the ability to live as a human and simultaneously live as a God-fragment. Nor does any teacher juggle between these realities with certainty and control.
Student: I’m surprised to hear this. Why is this so?
Teacher: For the same reasons I told you earlier. Do you not think this applies to all humans?
Student: Even Jesus?
Teacher: Even Jesus.
Student: Then why do I have this desire? Who put this notion into my head that I should be able to experience this inmost self or God-fragment?
Teacher: If one experiences the wind, do they not understand something of a hurricane?
Student: I suppose.
Teacher: And if they experience the rain, don’t they understand even more about hurricanes?
Teacher: If you never experienced a hurricane, but you experienced wind and rain, might you be able to imagine a hurricane better than if you never experienced wind and rain?
Student: I should think so.
Teacher: Such is the case of the God-fragment within the human instrument. You can experience unconditional love, supernal beauty, harmony, reverence, and wholeness, and in so doing, you can imagine the features and capabilities of the God-fragment within you. Some teachers have simply touched more of the edges of the God-fragment than others, but I assure you, none have entered into its depths while living in the human instrument.
Student: But don’t some teachers travel outside their body?
Teacher: Yes, but they are still living in a human instrument whilst they travel. Everything I said still applies.
Student: So what do I do? Give up the desire to have this experience?
Teacher: There is a fish that can leave its underwater world upon the equivalent of wings. While it is only for a short time, it experiences the realm of the air-breathers. Do you think this flying fish ever desires to touch a cloud, climb a tree, or venture into a forest?
Student: I don’t know… I doubt it.
Teacher: Then why does it fly above the water?
Student: I suppose it’s an instinct, something of an evolutionary imperative—
Student: So you’re saying this is true of humans as well. We strive to experience our God-fragment out of an evolutionary imperative or compulsion?
Teacher: Yes, and like the flying fish, when we break from our world it is only for a short time and we fall beneath the surface once again. But while we are above the surface of our world, we momentarily forget we are just a human with a beginning and an end. Yet, when we do this, we do not imagine that we can touch the face of God within ourselves.
Student: But I do. I feel that I can, and even should, touch this God-fragment.
Teacher: You think this way because you have the hopeful exuberance and naïveté of a person unacquainted with the experience of First Source.
Student: So you don’t feel this way?
Teacher: Anyone attuned to the highest vibrations of their innermost self will feel this and be guided by it. The only difference is that I am content in knowing that I will not experience it while I am embodied in a human instrument.
Student: And what does this contentment provide you that I don’t have?
Teacher: The ability to channel my energy into this world rather than to apply it in the pursuit of another.
Student: But I thought you said it is an evolutionary imperative? How do I control this desire or ambition?
Teacher: Live in this world with all your passion and strength. See the God-fragment in this world, even if it is only a diminished beacon or tired light. See it! Nurture it! Do not be so quick to look for it in the depths of your heart or mind where you believe it might be.
Student: It’s hard not to be disheartened at the sound of these words. It is like someone telling me that the vision I had was merely a mirage, or a trick of the light.
Teacher: This is a world of shadows and echoes. You can chase the source of these if you desire, but you will likely do so at the loss of living in this world. You will diminish your experience of the shadows and echoes, and this is the very reason you incarnated upon this planet at this time.
Student: But it sounds so passive, as if I should settle for experiencing this world, and not try to change it. I feel like I’m here with a mission to improve it, to change it for the better, and I’m missing some experience, some capability to do this. What is it I feel and why?
Teacher: When you experience the warmth of the sun, do you change the sun?
Teacher: And if you hold a piece of ice in your hands, do you change it?
Student: Yes. It begins to melt.
Teacher: So there are some things you can only experience, and there are some things you can change.
Student: And I should know the difference.
Teacher: It helps."(end part of the discussion in the link below)
