In this great channeling many questions about the positive and negative path are handled.
Quo confirmed that the higher self stays already in the sixth density and seems to be of positive polarity:
Well, you know that the higher self is situated in what we have called the sixth density of light vibration, in the middle portion of that density, where souls have learned to think of themselves as not just themselves, but rather part of a collective dance of self-ness continually gaining itself and releasing itself, in joyous communion with others. These characterizations would seem to fly far in the face of what we have described as the negative polarity, where the self would like nothing more, apparently, than to retreat into a condition whereby it wields power over all else, a power which is held jealously to itself, rather than to release its power into the general flow of the self-ness which ever effaces itself in the joy of releasing itself to the well-being of others.
Now there is the question how the choice for service to self is being kept from incarnation to incarnation from the higher self outside of an incarnation?
Okay. Having said that, we will now move to a consideration of the manner in which those of the negative polarity choose that polarity in such a manner as to be able to build upon that polarity from incarnation to incarnation.
We would suggest to you that there is a pivotal moment in the development of a mind/body/spirit complex which has achieved such integrity of its being on the negative path that it has reached the point we have previously described as the liberation. Having gone through that point, it has reached the moment that succeeds the initial exhilaration and feeling of freedom that that brings, and has faced the dark night of the soul. At that very moment it has decided decisively and, for what appears to be once and for all, that it will not release the potential of particularity, but rather hold to that potential, even in the face of the loss of all hope for redemption in the light of love. And it turns, rather, to an exaltation of the self as a particularized construct, which is a product of its own efforts.
Now, the adept who has reached this point may well have been able to reach into the realm of time/space and to lay down a marker in that realm, sometimes while incarnate, and at other times, only after a given incarnation has ended. The effect that this has, gradually, and over time, if we may use that misnomer, is to establish a zone, if you will, in which a certain kind of self-hood may be established that function in an ersatz manner as a kind of false higher self, or a higher self that is actually a builded structure of self-hood that is able to persist from incarnation to incarnation, and, in that capacity, to wield intimations and directions that come through as instincts to incarnate versions of the mind/body/spirit complex, moving off into the indefinite future.
And, in this way, that polarization of a negative variety that is begun in one incarnation may be built upon in the next incarnation, and the next, and so forth, even to the point of achieving the possibility of graduating and moving from one density to the next, or, again, to the next. And so, the structure of higher self-ness remains, in a way, even though there is not actually what you might call spiritual substance to the higher self. It is what, to one who has learned to function in relation to what we would call the actual higher self, would seem as a mockery of higher self-ness.
What shall this be this “certain kind of self-hood” that exists outside of an incarnation and how it is able to keep the service-to-self polarity into the next incarnation?
The construction of such an “addtional self-hood” to the higher self / soul seems to be needed, to have an explanation why a higher self (of positive polarization) will keep the choice (of an Ego within the third density) for further incarnations.
This does not really makes sense for me.
What do you think?
