Chapter One

The Boundaries of

The last of our communications to take place on conceptual levels will be sent during the years 1987 and 1989. This will be a truly momentous time, a time when the first contractions of (planetary) birth are unmistakable.

-- The Starseed Transmissions, December 31, 1978

In these pages, we address you in a succession of different modes to ensure every possibility of your understanding and to maximize your opportunities to catch these thought currents and ride them beyond mere words to remembrance of your eternal nature and your root purpose for currently being incarnate on earth in human form. Therefore, we speak to you at times as if you were still sleeping beneath the blankets of material plane illusion. For in fact, this is the present state of the human majority.

At other times we speak to you as if you yourself were the One who is awakening into the collective field of human consciousness. This is valid; it is how you will soon understand the "I" behind your outer roles and images of self. To the extent that you oscillate back and forth, at times experiencing moments of lucidity and oneness with the unified field of awareness, and at times lapsing back into the familiar thought patterns of the prevailing cultural mythology, you will find both forms of address of equal value.

Allow your understanding of who you are to relax as you move through these pages. The historical limitations in which you have defined yourself are no longer valid; indeed, they never were.

Your eternalnature is much greater than the conceptions of time in which you have kept it defined. Release all that you are from the prison of your self-concepts, that we might become one in your understanding as we have always been one in reality. Allow present-moment awareness to flow freely among your thoughts.

You have created your body as a terrestrial terminal for the habitation of eternal awareness. You have designed eyes to interpret a portion of your energy spectrum and ears to interpret another. You have created five senses to have a window into these times upon this world, that, biologically clothed, you might better monitor and interact with these physical dimensions. You can no longer afford to sleep in the illusions of this culture, allowing the wonders of sensory input to confuse your sense of being with the information you receive. The times you live in require the activation of the full range of your eternal capacities. They call now -- as we do -- for your incarnation.

When you define yourself without regard to your source in the Eternal Presence out of which this universe unfolds, when you continue to play out variations of the historical theme, which keep your eternal spirit at arm's length by imagining absolute "others" in the world around you, the illusions of the material realm weigh heavily upon your consciousness. Forces that were intended only to hold energy firmly within atomic structure bind and limit your perception. Your outlook becomes sober; your vision blurs beneath the emotional mists of excessive subjectivity.

As gravity draws objects to fall, so too does it draw the thoughts of those who define themselves without reference to the Source. And with their thoughts, their identities fall as well, back into matter, again and again. So it was said to the first egos who began to think of themselves in this fictitious way, "In dust you have conceived yourselves and to dust you will return." For all thought is dust in the minds of those who deny the reality that seeks birth in the manger of human form.

When you define yourselves in isolation, your senses deceive and blind. They lock you into a fractional perception of the universe in which you live. Cultural illusions become your reality, filtering and misinterpreting everything you perceive. Like murky glass, they intervene between you and your understanding of self and world. They cut off awareness of your eternal origin and leave you with an inadequate sense of self.

In the historical condition human beings undertake the arduous task of self-definition. To receive assistance in this monumental work, they accept the help of others in their sleeping society and in time come to think of themselves as a loose assortment of images and illusions, often contradictory, always uninspired. The vibrancy of their eternal presence is blocked by ancestral preconceptions that have not known fundamental change since their forebears huddled in the hollows of the ancient hills.

Those who later in life realize the limitations of this "poor self-image" often seek to improve their image of self. Yet in undertaking a task that in the natural order belongs solely to the life force itself, they succeed only, if they succeed at all, in remodeling their prisons; they may replace bars of iron with bars of brass, but the prison remains. Within it their awareness stays limited and confined.

There is but the finest veil between you and a fulldimensional perception of reality, the filmiest of screens between you and your eternal self. You require no elaborate technique or ritual to release this veil. You need only open to the organic current of awareness that in every moment flows to you from the source of all life.

When you accept the understanding that accompanies the awareness of your life force, you are defined no longer in the static images of yesterday's experience but in active universal participation. You know yourself as an agent of the continuing creation that is the great purpose and the great joy of these material realms.

Though opening to life force awareness is as easy as relaxation, deliberation is needed to sustain such openness in a society where subconscious patterns continuously beckon you back into their familiar habits. Yet if your love for reality is sufficiently strong, such deliberation is not difficult. Nothing can stop those whose hearts burn with genuine passion for the truth. And the truth you will discover is worth your passion. For the awareness that accompanies the current of your life is an eternal awareness. It is the awareness of your spirit.
