The discussion below illuminates even more a recent Diary post about purifying and releasing memories (especially in this particular post, pertaining to ancient Egypt); see Purifying the Past with Fragrance Alchemy.
What is the purpose this serves for the individual?
The memories of a time when the Original Ones did great miracles, creates a nostalgia and also guilt, that somehow this is no longer the case. It feels like a fall from grace. But those were different times when there was very little separation from Infinite will. (They were in the same stage as an infant to its mother.) If the same abilities to wield power over the environment would happen today, it would be black magic — based on individual desires. The Original Ones are no longer in a state of dependency, but working through stages of inter-dependency into eventual Absolute Oneness through empathic/telepathic receptivity with Source and Its creations. We must erase the nostalgia of what once was and trust and focus on the craftsmanship which evolution is developing.
