Rest in Rose
From Session 239, April 26, 2008
STEVE: You ghosts are fond of providing us with metaphors, for example, that the subjective is speaking to us in various ways. …Quiet the noise and listen for the quiet whisper. I sit there for hours sometimes listening for that whisper, and I’m not sure what form it’s going to be coming in, because – I guess it’s real quiet – ‘cause I’m not hearing it. And I try to say: “Are there any feelings present? No. Emotions? No. Impressions? No. Impulses? No.” I’m just sitting here listening to nothing. So what’s the solution to that? What is the nature of this “voice?”
ROSE: Your wanting to do so is the first thing. So you’re correct to try. Many individuals aren’t doing the really great exercises, so take heart that when you try, you will eventually do.
…Now, next, try to envision a wonderful place…. The place doesn’t need to be interesting your mind, only your fealings. The place is a blissful place that you’re wanting to go to always in your dreams. So continue to really try to connect with your place, but in your fealings.
So, for example, imagine a beach in a beautiful, remote place where you can truly realize peace, and beauty, and fearlessness, as well as rest. Try to think of this place now. (Pause) Ahhhhhhhhh. Doesn’t that feal good?
STEVE: I felt a relaxation response.
ROSE: Exactly. You were wanting us to help – we did. So you can trust that when you do this the next time, your essence will be there as well, to assist. Then you can really take off. Trust that you’ll find ways to get the information then, when you’re fealing good, when you’re fealing at rest – at beauty, at peace. So try this anytime. This is the way we teach meditation.
ROSE: This is how we think meditation truly should be – to feal good, indeed.
…Let’s go back to the beach, all of us together.
(Slowly, rhythmically) The waves are lapping at the shore. (Birds start chirping outside.) The birds are singing. The winds are dying down now. For really long times now, the winds have provided storms. They are now allowing peace. They are subsiding. The wonderful thoughts are also subsiding in order to provide rest, and clarity, and sontering to breathe in the wonderful, humid, tropical air, to realize total rest, and realizing that there is nothing to be feared or to do. The thoughts have gone away.
We are here as sonterers of you. We are here breathing you now as you rest on the beach that you’ve created for us to commune, and when you realize that you’re here with us, you totally rest in our loving ways (A cricket starts chirping outside) of providing you whatever you need to be happy. So now take a few deep breaths and drink in the beautiful sunshine of your loving essences who whisper things to share so you’ll be truly, independently happy. No matter what situation you find yourself in, we are there always.
Now, you’re wanting to sing, but you’re shy. What will you sing today? Will it be the song of your Self? Will it be the song of your essence? If you’d like, we will give you the words to use, indeed, as well as the music, the voice, the chorus, the images, the ideas, the stage – everyone’s there to provide you whatever the things are that you’ll require for your beautiful constructions. So when you hear the words that will sing you a beautiful life, do you hear us now?
We suggest you try to keep this wonderful fealing that you’ve created for yourselves as long as you’d like, and come back to this place whenever you feal the need to speak to us.
…We wanted to tell you a bit about the environment that we want you to experience when you rest in Rose, as we call it.
…The way you can think of resting in Rose is as a way of finding your truly deepest self enfolded in Rose’s loving arms. So we help you connect with your own essence, but when you’re wanting some assistance, your Roses are there to help you do that. So rest in Rose when you want the benefit of your Roses to assist. That’s all.
…So when you’re wanting to connect with essence, try to go to your place, realize loving kindness and rest, and the whispers will begin – we promise.
