In the coming days we will post parts of an interview Cris held with Almine in 2011. In it they dive deeply into the nature of reality. Today part 1!
This interview was also published in the online version of the Sedona Journal of Emergence, so you may already be familiar with it. If you like this kind of deep metaphysics, be sure to check out Almine’s Down the Rabbit Hole course, which has 3 months worth of deep metaphysics on the nature and origin of the dream of duality, asked in quite the same style as this article. Now, without further ado, the interview…
A Teacher and Speaker from Europe traveled to Oregon, to experience a week in Almine’s presence and was presented with the opportunity to ask questions.
The Nature of Reality and How To Express Fully
Traveling from Europe to visit Almine, I felt it was time to ask her some questions about the nature of reality and about how we could all go to the next level of expression.
On a sunny afternoon, Almine and I set off to one of the many rivers in Oregon. Two hours later, we found ourselves near the banks of a river that we would later call the River of the Floating Tiger, referring to children that at the time were playing with their plastic tiger, floating on this river. This image would later in the day hold deeper meaning for us.
Does playing roles limit full expression?
Almine: “Integrated cooperation requires roles. Roles require only partial expression. The creation of any pattern is a shadow. Therefore roles have a transient limit.”
Do roles create shadows?
Almine: “Creations of shadows, the only way of creating through patterns, depend on light to cast a shadow, and frequency to shape that shadow. Light and frequency can only create mediocrity and keep us in lower levels of expressing Infinite intent. We have seen the tools of linear change, the building blocks of existence, and the matrices and grids, as the shadows governing life. But the true roles of these are the static roles that cast the patterns seen as tyrants. Patterns will forever repeat while these static points play previous roles.”
Is desire something positive?
Almine: “Desire is the basis of keeping the roles locked into place. To maintain a static relationship between poles requires equilibrium in the attraction and the repulsion of these poles. The attraction to the Infinite embodiment is called levitation. The repulsion to the Infinite embodiment that keeps us in a role is gravitation. Levitation is the desire for oneness. Gravitation is the desire for the illusion of separation (individual expression). Desire is agenda and creates relationship. Even the desire for oneness creates a relationship of inner space when it is approached with an agenda of overcoming its opposite illusion of separation or of gaining power, resources, and perception.
Living as shadows we have lived in a cyberworld. The anguish we feel about the forgetfulness we experience about our ‘past glories’ can vanish when we understand that we have simply changed virtual realities. The old reality in which we played the ‘king or queen’ was either eliminated because it became boring or unpleasant after eons, or it is stored in cyberspace to play again at another time. Disconnecting from the cyberworld tribe, by seeing how unreal any role is that we have played in it, is essential to rising beyond desire and subsequent relationship.”
