    Hopping a Different Train:

    "Hop a different train… If you’re going a hundred miles an hour on a train that way and you wanna go a hundred miles an hour that way, you don’t want it to suddenly stop and go the other way because it would be really hard on the contents of the train. That’s been our analogy for years, wanting you to know, just let it slow down.

    But now what we’re saying is, let’s call the train a condition. The train is a condition that’s going one way or the other at some speed. But your vibration on the train – the train could be going a hundred miles an hour to someplace you don’t really wanna go, and you could be vibrationally going someplace you do wanna go and, under those conditions, you could, in the scheme of this silly analogy, hop onto a different train. The condition does not need to control your vibration, and if you will decide that the condition is not gonna control your vibration, then you are a master, then you are free, and then you are always thriving under all conditions and people are amazed at how life is going for you when the current in a larger setting or a larger scope seems to be working against you. Nothing that is happening needs to affect your vibration and, therefore, needs to affect what is happening to you.”

    "A car that hits a tree..."

    "Imagine this situation:
    A car is driving down the street at 100 mph, and it runs into a tree
    which is standing right in the middle of the road.
    Big problem.

    Two factors are involved - one is the velocity of the car
    and the other is the tree standing there.
    If the car were only going 5 mph, even if it hit the tree,
    it would not be a big problem.
    Or it could easily avoid the tree at 5 mph.
    Or, if the tree were not there at all,
    the car could be going 200 mph and it would not be a problem.

    Every now and again, somebody will say to us,
    “Abraham, is it normal for all hell to break loose in one’s life
    when they begin doing Abraham work?”
    And we say, “Yes, in the beginning.”

    Because the first thing we encourage you to do
    is identify and clarify your desire.
    Desire is synonymous with the velocity of the car.
    When you identify and clarify your desire, your car goes faster,
    which means you’re likely to run into those trees;
    trees which were there, in most cases, for many years,
    but you were not noticing at a slower speed.

    Now that your energy is moving faster because of your desire,
    your resistance is more apparent.
    Are you getting a sense of what we’re talking about?

    Most people, when they get in that situation, slow the car down.
    They slow the wanting down.
    And that gives them a temporary feeling of well-being.
    But it doesn’t do anything about the resistance.
    So you can go through years,
    with this resistance getting a little more
    and your car going slower and slower.

    That’s why people decline as they move through time.
    They want less, which means they summon less energy -
    because in wanting something that they cannot have,
    they were frustrated and banging into trees,
    so they slow their wanting down
    and let their resistance get greater and greater.

    And that’s the state of affairs that you see in most people around you.
    Well, what we’re wanting to teach you
    is to get your car going so fast
    that those trees become very obvious
    and now you know what to do with the trees.

    In other words,
    you stop and just talk about it
    (your desire) until you feel better
    and, in time, there are no more trees.
    In 30 days of applying this, you can release 95% of them.

    And then now and again,
    an old ugly tree that has been with you a long time
    will rear its ugly head and give you a run for your money,
    but when that happens,
    at least now you know what to do about it."

    Fall out of the Airplane...

    (You say) "Abraham, I fell out of an airplane, Iīm at 30 000 feet
    and I have no parachute. What shall I do?"

    And we say: Hang on. It will be over soon.







    It's sort of a new conversation that we're all having together-
    -the sooner that you just let go
    and fall out of that airplane,

    the quicker you're gonna be
    called up into that Alignment.
    It just happens that way. It just happens that way.

    It's the struggle that slows it down.
    It's the trying that slows it down.
    It's the defending and justifying that slows it down

    and it doesn't sound like you were doing too much of that
    because what you wanted, was just to feel better....

    From Phoenix to San Diego


    Jerry and Esther are driving from Phoenix to San Diego.
    They love San Diego. Itīs hot in Phoenix! Itīs cool in San Diego.
    They are on their way, but most of their way
    that they are on their way, they are NOT IN SAN DIEGO!
    They are out in the desert!

    So, they get out there, half way. Yuma. There is no good place
    to eat, in Yuma. Itīs the middle of the desert.
    And so, the analogy weīve been offering over the years is:
    If they were to stop and freak out, because they are in Yuma-
    get so disoriented, because they are not in San Diego that they
    turn around, and get back to Phoenix-

    And then, they go back to Yuma. And then they go back to Phoenix.

    And then, they go back to Yuma. And then they go back to Phoenix.
    Iow, disoriented!
    Never ever ever getting to where they are wanting to be!

    Red inky mist

    You canīt get to where you wanna go, as long as you are
    assessing whatīs going on. We donīt wanna be hard on you.
    (...) What is happening now, what feels PRESENT TENSE,
    is old, residual!

    Itīs just the manifestation of old,
    vibrational residual!


    So, isnīt it logical that- as you clean up your vibration,
    than than in time, you move up past all of that.

    (...Imagine that...) When you open your mouth and breathe,
    that you emit a red inky mist into your atmosphere, right
    in front of your face. And lets call that "Concern about something".

    So, everywhere you go you are engulfed in this red inky mist!
    And you say "Itīs just everywhere I go, and itīs been there,
    as long as I can remember!"

    But in the moment that you stop renewing it,
    and releasing it new, it will start to dissipate, and in a little while,
    youīll be out of the red, inky mist! It wonīt creep up on you!

    The Universe doesnīt speak english.
    It speaks VIBRATION!

    "Many will say to us,”Abraham, this must be wrong.
    You must have left something important out, because
    I’ve wanted this for a very long time and it keeps not coming.”

    And we say,
    sometimes you fool yourself with your words.
    You say, “I want,” when what you are really meaning is,
    “I want, I want, I want,”
    (pleading)
    which means,
    “I don’t have it. I need it. It is gone.”

    So much attention, using words, “want” but meaning “need”
    or feeling lack.
    Oh, this is a big one for you -
    the Universe doesn’t speak English, you see."

    Go with the current of your stream


    Life Force is summoned through you,
    because of the vision of (you,) the founder—
    unless you're bucking the current.

    Most get into that fast moving stream and paddle against the current—
    and then complain about it being a hard ride—
    where they could get into their canoe and easily paddle
    with the fast moving current.

    You can soar and thrive in any environment,
    as long as you are not seeing things that you are using as your reason
    to paddle against the current.
    And so, it doesn't really matter what others are deciding.
    The questions is: "As I am choosing to stand here, it's a way for dollars
    to flow through me in exchange for the effort I am offering.

    Am I predominantly letting the Energy flow through me,
    or not? Am I letting it in?

    Excerpted from: Albuquerque, NM on August 01, 2000
