I did some pondering and thought hey wait a minute this is backwards!! If you don't help your self how can you help other's?
There are many channellings out there as well as individuals putting out data without actually explaining what they mean.
How many times have you heard about a channeller asking questions about what is truly meant by the channel given? Since words often have several meanings it's very easy to walk the assumption path.. if proper explanation is not given. I don't mean that every word has to be explained but you get the gist, right?
Another term that is very common is "going with the flow"! Okey.. which flow, who's flow and what flow? To me this it sounds more like being idle.. hardly moving.. ! As long I don't get the information about the flow I can never know what is meant... here some words from A Wisdom Keeper who really put's it out there.. I fully second the statement made. ~OT
Well, service to self in what way? At what level? At what frequency? At a 3D level - with greed, selfish inconsiderateness, not caring who ya step on or ab-use / misuse? Purely for money or for fame or a following? Or lust or perhaps out of fear... of being lonely or whatever other dis-empowered motive.
Or service to self at a higher level - self-respect, self-love, getting healed... .... to then be able to turn around and help the planet by transmuting millennia of shit energy out or help others and not because you heard someone say some fancy term or line and want to parrot it to others but because you've experienced it yourself FIRST, you've LIVED it, you KNOW it, you know what works and what doesn't.
Because you know if you don't take care of yourself and heal and self-nurture then you really have nothing to offer the next person. Because if you're dead you have no help to offer the 3D world. Because, as I said before, what we TRULY have to offer anyone else is our consciousness and how can you offer it to the next person if you don't get there yourself, FIRST?!
If you can't love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?
And on the flip side, service to others in what way, at what level, at what frequency, from what agenda or motive? People who have egos and subconscious that are programmed in dis-empowered ways are often ass-kissers, boot-lickers, will do anything to make a buck, to keep a job, to get along, to have a friend, to be popular, to be liked, to have low frequency "power".
To be "slothful", to follow someone else's agenda rather than their own agenda, to "go with the flow" to "fit in", no matter what the cost to themselves or others, doing all the wrong things because others do and they want to "succeed" at low frequency levels and cave in to all the things they feel in their gut and heart and intuition to be wrong because "that's just the way it is".
People who don't have the guts to tell someone what they need to hear to heal. People who will enable other's dysfunction so as not to rock the boat... that often so desperately needs to be rocked.
People who don't want to rouse the rabble that so desperately needs to be roused. Then again, duality in what way? That there are just some things that are complementary, like masculine and feminine? Neither is bad, but that difference is most certainly part of duality. Both could stand to be integrated within each individual and no one needs to be androgynous or have a sex change to incorporate both. Just one example of complements, which means "to make complete".
Other examples of duality though, in some cases, some dark sides of things could stand to be let go of like ignorance and thinking there are things that just can't be known. Like ego issues that on one side make one feel grandiose while on the other side make people "play small" and claim "I'm only human" as some sort of cop out, some excuse to not be all they can be.
And societal programming that deems that some things are bad or wrong when in reality there may be nothing wrong with them or in some cases, these things judged as "wrong" or "bad" are actually strengths and are downright healthy.
In this planetary ascension, those who get themselves to a 5D level are serving themselves , serving their own soul by healing, clearing, releasing and upgrading. Nothing wrong with that. If 7 billion people would have been self-centered (centered on self) in THAT way, we and Gaia would have all been outta here long ago and the work, the burden would have been spread around evenly and not just put on a small minority of people.
Heal themselves first, then and only then can they go on to serve the planet and others in any higher level energetic capacity.
And yet along the way, in the effort to offer consciousness they can do that for the next person on some topic that they are even 1/2 a step ahead on.
Yeah, I don't like the ambiguity of these terms STS & STO. Those terms are very black and white and biased in its perspective, in its assumption that everyone will just see it the right way, the most healthy way for all involved... and those terms are too easily misunderstood / misinterpreted in a very harmful and dis-empowering way... and nobody bothers to explain.
Btv (Below The Veil - BTV) or atv (Above The Veil - ATV) there are WAY too many assumptions that just because different entities / beings are using the same terms / words, there must be an understanding, there must be the SAME interpretations and definitions because it's the same word. Errr! Wrong answer!
A recent channeled message said this:
"Even though the techniques necessary to fulfill your dreams have been outlined for some time, those techniques were ignored, misunderstood or denied."
Ok, if we apply that to your run-of-the-mill LW (Light Worker - Information Worker), yep. But look at all the channelled messages that didn't get these people on the right track in the first place. How many channelled messages have said some emotions are good and some bad? Don' feel angry or bored or whatever. What?
From a bunch of unemotional non-humans who don't know wtf they are talking about?! Oh, they are proving now they can dish out the tough love message (about time) and yet where are they accepting the responsibility for their part, their role in the misunderstanding? How many times have the human channeller's gotten the message wrong, stated it wrong or misinterpreted it after the fact and yet where are these channeling entities to make that correction?
"Hey there dear human, we can tell by what you told others that you did not correctly interpret our message, so we'd like to explain further..." Do they even bother to check in and see how humans, especially their own channeling human is interpreting their message?
And why are human channeller's just swallowing all these messages without question? And even when the message is a good one, why aren't they making sure that they themselves actually understand it and LIVE it? ETs and LWs, a match made in hell. The blind leading the blind.
