Gaia Portal - January 26th 2015: Aspersive characters are dismissed - with interpretations by Justin

The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black.

Aspersive characters are dismissed.

Plenitudes of purpose come to sight.

Half-measures are recognized and illuminated.

Stored essences come to the surface.

Refreshments are served.

And now the analysis:

I do not have an insider or direct source for the meanings below. This is my interpretation of the update, based on extrapolation and contextual usage of the terms. The meanings provided are not the only ones that can be gleaned; in my view, all meanings have value, especially when shared and discussed openly. Please comment below if interested, I'd love to hear other's thoughts on this material.

Interpretations: "Aspersive characters are dismissed." - The term asperse refers to the act of attacking someone or something with false, malicious or damaging insinuations, what is often called slander. Therefore, an aspersive character is one who is seeking to slander or damage another person. Within the general population, I contend that there are not people who are always aspersive, instead this modality of expression usually occurs in relation to something we do not agree with or accept. For example, someone who doesn't think that the government is controlled by a hidden Cabal with a nefarious intention will act aggressively towards a 9/11 truther. This kind of reaction is reflection of an individual who, with respect to a particular topic, has rejected the idea presented, so strongly, that they must police their reality for anyone or anything that remotely resembles the item being rejected.

From an unconscious perspective, this is usually a defense mechanism, an effort to protect one's sense of reality or worldview. From a conscious perspective, this is an effort to prevent others from being exposed to the information, possibly from someone who recognizes that it is valid. In either case, the internal effect is to protect one's worldview, whereas, the external effect is the development of a social conditioning program where individuals are forced to choose between social conformity or individual exploration. In other words, when we find information (whether true or not) that does not resonate with us, this creates the potential for reality management reactions. For example, information presented in a movie or tv that is disclosing a socially unacceptable truth, like what was being presented in X-Files recently, will create a bias within the collective unconscious towards disbelief. This is another way of saying, the reality bubbles or worldviews of the general population have identified the topics presented as untrue, therefore when someone claims that they might be truthful, aspersive behaviors will usually result. But to be clear, we are all capable of falling into this modality of protectiveness.

The statement makes reference to aspersive characters being dismissed, which could refer to a literal example of someone coming under attack and not allowing themselves to be disturbed, or this could refer to an internal dismissing of our own aspersive characteristics. I suggest both are occurring. If my own personal life is a measure, then each person we make contact with, that does not resonate with our beliefs, could either react aspersively towards us or we could react aspersively towards them. If we are the ones reacting, then we need compassion and forgiveness towards ourselves, that we would defend our sense of reality out of fear. Conversely, if one is reacting towards us, we can recognize this fearful reaction in another and offer them compassion. Thankfully, information is never lost, the unconscious mind stores all in streaming data for later distillation, yet the harder we fight to suppress it the harder it is to unearth when one is ready. As such, take care not to fight too hard against someone who isn't willing to consider an idea, and take care with ourselves not to fight too hard against the ideas of another. For if our sense of reality is in harmony with truth, then no one else's perspective can ever limit or corrupt that sense of knowing. Finally, I also suspect that the Cabal is the most aspersive group of people on the planet, and their choice to act in this way could be with full knowledge that it is a fraud, meaning they know the truth and choose to promulgate a bais towards disbelief anyway. If this interpretation is accurate, then humanity at large is dismissing these characteristics.

"Plenitudes of purpose come to sight." - A plentitude refers to a thing of abundance, herein used to refer to purpose. Given the preceding statement of dismissing aspersive characters, then if we apply the personal meaning from above, when we dismiss these behaviors it clears our mind and raise the heart, allowing a purpose of abundance or plentitude to come to sight. Consider that from a space of fear and lack, the mind is awash with limiting ideas and judgements, which is felt as negative emotions of disempowerment. Since the experience of fear is illusory, meaning, there is nothing to truly fear, or stated another way, fear is in the eye of the beholder, then when we take the time to practice compassion and forgiveness, or take the time to ground and be still, this clears away the fear that was blocking our sight. Have you ever tried to be spontaneous and creative while in fear? For example, what if a friend says to you: "quick say something funny," in most cases, the anxiety (fear) from being put on the spot will prevent the instreaming of inspiration to actually be funny, an act of creation. In other words, in order to begin the process of creating abundance, we must first have sight (envision a goal) which requires a clear mind and heart, to a certain extent. Then once this goal has been visualized with enough clarity, we will be filled with purpose, which is a combination of emotional excitement and mental clarity. Now from this union of mind and heart can give birth to the plentitude of our own design. Taking this into account, I suggest that this statement is referring to the moment when the mind clears and the goal is being envisioned, the point when we see there many ways to achieve the goal, filling us with an abundance of purpose.

"Half-measures are recognized and illuminated." - A half-measure is an action, choice or policy which is not effective enough to achieve the desired result. For example, if we wanted to walk across a tightrope, but lost our balance and fell, then this attempt would be considered a half-measure. Here, I think the term refers to our own mistakes or errors, which as we've described before, become illuminated when we experience undesired effects. For example, if we want to act compassionately towards a friend who is usually judgemental towards us (aspersive) yet when engaging with them we feel angry, upset and defensive ourselves, these emotions reveal to us that our efforts are half-measures. And often when recognizing this, the potential to become overly judgmental towards ourselves can cause great emotional turmoil and personality stagnation. As we discussed above, compassion and forgiveness towards ourselves are essential. But this recognition is only the realization of a lack of knowledge, which if accepted will create a desire to gain the knowledge we need to achieve the goal. I would even argue that this is of utmost importance as we walk the long path of truth back to source. If we can recognize the truth of our own mistakes, then will these things be illuminated, filled with the light of awareness. And this data will flood the open mind filling us with plentitudes of purpose to re-evaluate our previous methods so as to bolster them to become effective. Using the aforementioned example, now when we recognize that we are getting upset, we can forgive ourselves, and know that this feeling is a temptation to be aspersive ourselves. In time, from this space of calm, the right path will be illuminated before us, so long as we do not fall into fear and lack.

"Stored essences come to the surface." - The term essence refers to something that is quintessential, an indispensable quality that defines a thing, person or event. In the discussion of evolutionary processes, an essence is essentially the higher self or spirit, that aspect of ourselves existing in perfection, potentialized in the evolving personality. Experience is the divine technique of manifesting the essence of each being into the physical, a synthesis of what was and what is becoming. And this technique of universal attainment is a process of growing light from darkness, not darkness as in evil, just unorganized or undeveloped aspects of self. For example, when we lack skill, knowledge or awareness when attempting to manifest our desires a mistake or error could occur, a half-measure. And if we receive this gift if potential wisdom with an open mind and heart, then we will gain knowledge, and this mental structure will pull potential wisdom to the surface. For example, a musician seeking to play a piece will usually make all manner of mistakes, precisely revealing the areas where skill needs to be improved. And when we accept this truth, now what is hidden below the surface comes to light. Therefore, it is the boundary between light and darkness where what is stored within comes to the surface.

"Refreshments are served." - Following the consequential theme of this update, we've passed through the phases of transcending aspersive characteristics, seeing a plentitude of purpose as a result. From here, we take action on that purpose to reveal any half-measures in our process, which illuminates lack of knowledge. From here we go back inwards, seeking knowledge we lacked, and in the process our stored essence comes to the surface, manifesting or birthing a more complete version of self. In that moment of realization, wherein we achieve our goal and also feel the vibrancy of personal transformation that came with it, a refreshment is served. What is essentially being stated here is that the reward for personal transformation, as a result of walking the path of truth, is positive emotions and a sense of internal achievement which can never be replaced by material reward. The task now is to remain vigilant to any remaining half-measures and aspersive characteristics within ourselves. We must not take this momentary success as an indication we've reached the mountaintop. For each step forward along the path of truth lengthens the goal. Since the truth is absolute or infinite, then all our efforts to blot out the unknown will only make us aware of all that has yet to be understood and experienced; an eternal adventure of making our way back to source. Take heart in knowing, that no matter how clear or perfect our understanding is, there is always infinitely more to gain knowledge of.

PS - In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn't sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know, that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.

Note about meanings: The meanings offered are my attempt to objectify the Gaia Portal updates, to give them a scientifically supported basis in reality. However, the subjective process of reading the update personally is incredibly valuable, and meanings generated in each respect are not mutually exclusive (in conflict with each other). I suggest reading the update, like a tool for divination as if it was written specifically for you; similar to a psychic reading. Your meanings may not match what I share, but that does not mean one is more 'correct' than another. All meanings have value, depending on the context which is applied to them, all perspectives have a place within the whole of what IS, and therefore, can be part of an exploration of one's self. Our perspective is intimately connected to all others.
