Sitting in the Silver Chair

C.S. Lewis wrote the Narnia Series as allegory for these times, and he said, "behind every story there is a white witch." The White Witch is a sociopath who plays the power game of Lust to outsmart others, like a cat playing with a mouse. One of the stories is "The Silver Chair," where the prince is trapped and forced to sit in a Silver Chair by the Lady of the Green Kirtle, who plays the games of Greed and Envy.

How do they get free from the chair--something they hold onto that became a trap to them?

In the story, they are freed by two children and a Narnian Marshwiggle, and the requirement is that the prince must ask for help from Aslan, they all must overcome the illusion that the Lady weaves, and then they must fight the Lady to stop her from playing the games.

The games are bad, not the people. We are working to stop the games. It is like helping people overcome drug abuse, alcoholism and diseases like pancreatic cancer, which are all based on games. This is the reason for creating our crisis center.

Everyone wants to be part of the plan for the international government, but not all people see how it will benefit them to participate. There must be a give and take idea that is based on sharing one's talents and gifts. They are easy to share. It actually benefits you to share your talents and gifts, and what you get back with each win-win agreement is multiplied. Win-win agreements build trust and set the stage for future agreements.

To give you an example, I channeled a book--"A Manual for Peace," and before it could be printed, I needed to edit the book and format it for printing. All I had was a manuscript. I met a man at a garage sale. He was a retired editor for a trade journal. He was also very lonely, because his wife had died and he missed her very much. He agreed to edit my book, which would have cost me a thousand dollar, and in return, I channeled his wife. It was a win-win agreement, and it set the stage for the next win-win agreement. He trusted me to take care of his house and cat while he went into the hospital, and my daughter and I had a place to live for several months. It benefited everyone.

The White Witch plays the power game of revenge, which involves five power games, and it seems that everyone who is involved with the acts of revenge have the same goal, that the revenge is the means to an end, but they actually have different goals and so are constantly undermining those who brought them into the revenge.

You cannot get your life by getting revenge, but you can get your life by making win-win agreements, and sharing your talents and gifts.

The opportunity that arises based on participation in the plan for the international government is backwards from the door that is the ultimate conclusion from the power games. What people want is to be able to get their life on a higher level, but it can't come from controlling and outsmarting others. People 180 degrees from where they think they are. What they want is behind them instead of ahead of them, and must turn around to see their potential to get their life.

Think of the world leaders who have been oppressed, and just want to be equal to the other world leaders. They see the opportunity to function on a higher level, but as equals to the other world leaders. People who have been oppressed lack equality. Compare them to the world leaders who are jockeying for power and don't have it in the United Nations, and the international government is their opportunity to take their power games to control and manipulate to the higher level to become emperor of the planet, working from within the structure.

Why would anyone choose to be equal over being the king of the planet? Because there is always a backlash to the games. They don't understand Universal Law.

If you try to outsmart someone, you will eventually demonstrate that you don't understand.

If you are grabbing for something, you will eventually lose it.

If you envy someone, you deny your own capacity.

You can't get your life by playing power games, but you can get it by sharing your talents and gifts with others to make win-win agreements.

Those who rely on the power games don't understand what their talents and gifts are. If you are a sociopath, you are pushing away responsibility for your actions, and equating power and brutality. Power comes from assuming responsibility to undo the damage you have done. We are looking at the where true power comes from, and you cannot convince anyone who is trying to outsmart you that they don't understand that what they are doing won't work. They are pushing people away from them, and eventually, they will be completely alone.

Everyone plays the games because we all come from a sense of lack, and the games are all based on fears. Our projects enable us to assume responsibility to undo the damage we have done and to start to share out talents and gifts. Those who play the games of Lust and Envy rely on weaving an illusion because they don't know what their capacity is. Their capacity becomes in weaving an illusion.

In the Faith of the Pure Ray church calendar, last month we celebrated Confucianism, which is based on the principles of Capacity--based on sharing your talents and gifts to create a niche. On the opposite of the circle, opposing it, we can learn from Judaism and Buddhism. Judaism focuses on finding partners to help you create a niche or cash flow. Buddhism focuses on getting the support you need, which comes from sharing your knowledge and expertise with others. You cannot get it by playing the games of greed or trapping others to extort money from them, or by working with others to get revenge on someone.

If you are sitting in a Silver Chair, you must be willing to be equal to all the others, which may be hard for princes to do.

Our intent is to make everyone equal, the king or queen of his or her own family. No one has the right to interfere in someone else's life.
