The Nature of “reality”—The Script

In describing his own experience, Eckhart Tolle speaks of his discovery that there were two of him residing in his head. One was the self he thought he was (which he later identified as the ego) and the other was a presence that he later discovered was his True Self. (Tolle goes into great detail about the ego and its workings in his book, A New Earth: Awakening to Your Life’s Purpose.)

I have read many theories about the ego and our proper relationship to it, and I have worked long and hard to recognize when I am “coming from ego,” or coming from the more neutral perspective of what I have called “the observer.” I currently believe that ego is a product of the soul and the observer is the presence of Infinite Beingness, which both creates us and permeates us, as an expression of Itself.

In the previous post, I talked about the Oversoul and the way it projects portions of itself into different space-time locations, where they play out as what we call “lives.” I quoted a portion of the Hosts’ Message, “The Harvesting of the Souls,” and would like to repeat a paragraph here to highlight how the soul differs from the Oversoul and why I think that the ego is a product of the soul carrying out its purpose for a given life:

“… The “soul” is actually like a bead on the silver cord, between the Oversoul and the “body” of the life. It is like a local supervisor and only has that one “life” to contend with. Its job is to closely monitor and interact with that “life” and to assist it in fulfilling its purpose in being. When the silver cord is withdrawn by the Oversoul, the soul is pulled back up into the Oversoul and merges into it. All of the experiences of the “life” flow up the silver cord during that life, so the soul does not contain anything other than its capacity to assist that life in fulfilling its purposes.”Operation Terra: The Collected Works, p. 99

In the more commonly-held understanding of the soul, it is referred to as being immortal and is what we often think of as our “spirit,” but here the Hosts have gotten very specific about the nature of the soul, its purpose, and its limited longevity.

In the past, I have equated my ego with my personality—what I understood as my identity, the role or character I was playing in the larger drama. From what the Hosts have said about the nature of the soul, “Its job is to closely monitor and interact with that “life” and to assist it in fulfilling its purpose in being.” What we call the ego or “self” is part of how we fulfill our purpose in being. It is how we usually express in our interactions with our environment and everything in it.

The ego’s primary job is to literally keep “body and soul” together. In fact, the body is a separate entity that has its own consciousness and can develop and exist independently of the soul, at least to a limited extent. In Life Before Life (a wonderful book by clinical psychologist Helen Wambach that has now gone out of print), Wambach used hypnosis and a standardized set of questions to regress thousands of people to the period just before their present lifetime and summarized their reports of how they had made the plans for how it would play out, including who they would be with and what roles each of them would play in exploring the intended themes for that life. Wambach speaks of “ensoulment” taking place at any time during the pregnancy, sometimes even after the actual birth.

In one of the anecdotes in psychiatrist Michael Newton’s first two books, Journey of Souls: Case Studies of Life Between Lives and Destiny of Souls: New Case Studies of Life Between Lives, one of his regression subjects reported that it was not possible for a soul to inhabit a developing fetus before the 12th week of gestation because the developing nervous system was not mature enough to be used by the soul before then.

When I remembered my own entry into this life, I plummeted downward from the vastness of my being and was wrapped tighter and tighter as I fell. I screamed because of the sensations I was experiencing, and finally entered the developing fetus in my birth mother’s womb at 12 weeks of gestation.

I definitely had a sense of identity at that point in time and perceived my birth mother as a threat to my continued existence because she was unmarried and ambivalent toward her pregnancy. I tried to communicate with her, but although I was totally aware of her thoughts and could feel her emotions, I could not seem to reach her and my wishes went unheard. In the end, the fetus that I inhabited matured and was born.

My ego was obviously already present at 12 weeks of gestation because it perceived a threat to its continuity. The immensity I had been before “coming down” to incarnate would never have perceived that threat. There is no fear at that level of vastness because everything is perceived and understood correctly in its connection with everything else.

That the body can operate without the spirit being present is illustrated by the phenomenon of “out-of-body experiences” (OOBEs) As a child, I put myself to sleep every night through leaving my body (astral projection). I was aware that I was doing that, but didn’t have a name for what I was doing until I began learning about these matters in the ’80s. I know that I leave my body every night even now, but I have no idea where I go or what happened while I was there. In addition, I consciously left my body while I was in the waking state from the time I was 14 to the time I was 25 years old.

So, the ego’s job is to keep “body and soul” together, and it’s primarily designed to identify and respond to perceived threats to its existence. It can’t comprehend a larger reality than what it can directly perceive through the physical senses and a subtle sensing mechanism that detects potential dangers in various situations.

It’s the soul’s job to make sure that the purpose for a given life is fulfilled, and when the body ceases to operate, its job is done. The soul carries out the intention of its Oversoul in creating that particular life, which is what we refer to as the “script” for that life.

In the Message, “Calm, Grounded and Centered,” (p. 290 in The Collected Works), the Hosts said:

Every detail of your life has been anticipated by your Oversoul. All of your “appointments with destiny” will be kept. Every last requirement will be met for the completion you are making with all of your other lives. You are already losing your memory capabilities and for some of you that is not convenient, but be encouraged by that sign that you are that much closer toward your desired destination. You are well along in your process and there is much Grace flowing. All you need to do is receive it.

… You must trust that whatever you need to complete your life’s purpose will be provided. That does not mean you will always like how it is wrapped, but every occurrence in your life is a true gift to help you complete your life in the way that was intended for you by your Oversoul.” [emphasis added]

This is profound in its implications. It also completely agrees with what I observed in my experience with my Oversoul. The Oversoul already knew everything about each of the lives it was projecting. It knew exactly what would happen in each of those lives, what purposes they would fulfill, and all of that was “written,” or encoded, before the life was projected into space-time. Here’s what the Hosts said about this in the Message, “The Harvesting of Souls” (p. 97 in The Collected Works):

“If you were to look at reality from the perspective of the Oversoul, you would see all of your “lives” going on simultaneously. You would see that you had created them and you would have very little interest in what was happening to them because you created them WHOLE, i.e. containing everything they needed to complete the life “design” you intended for them. It is a little like the oak tree inside the acorn analogy.

When a “life” is created, it contains “codings” — very similar to computer programs and subprograms — that will unfold the life perfectly. These codings are contained in the DNA and the various parts of the cells and tissues that make up the body. They are only contained in the brain to the extent that they exist in the cells of the brain. The brain does not “think” or direct. It is merely a switching station that coordinates signals or information exchange between the many different parts of the body and interprets the data coming in from the sensory input mechanisms.”

I came up with an additional concept to describe how these codings can remain dormant until something shows up in a particular environment to trigger them into action in response to that cue from the environment. I noticed that it was as if there were invisible, tiny sentinels watching for that cue to appear. All they did was keep asking the question, over and over again, “Has it happened?” Has the cue appeared? Until the cue appeared, the sentinels just kept asking the question. However, when an anticipated cue DID show up, the sentinel went “Wowie, zowie!” and threw open a gate to a subroutine in the coding that carried out the pre-programmed response to that particular cue.

In the anecdotes in Newton’s first two books, there were many descriptions of how these plans were laid, down to what clothes we would be wearing or a given physical feature we would have that would enable us to recognize each other when we met up in the planned life. I have personally experienced this myself, in meeting up with some of my destined meetings with others who were programmed to arrive in my life at a specific time. I have also remembered standing in a group of approximately 30 “tall beings” (the Hosts are around 10-12 feet tall), as we discussed who would come in when and how we would find one another after incarnating separately.

In the Message, “Calm, Grounded and Centered” (p. 290 in The Collected Works), the Hosts went even further with this idea of the script or plan for our life. Although I have stated it earlier to make a different point, I think it bears repeating because of the idea of everything that appears in our life is a gift, whether we appreciate it that way or not:


“… You must trust that whatever you need to complete your life’s purpose will be provided. That does not mean you will always like how it is wrapped, but every occurrence in your life is a true gift to help you complete your life in the way that was intended for you by your Oversoul.”

That is a passage I have returned to over and over again, and hindsight has proven it to be true, without exception. Finally, here are some closing thoughts from the Hosts, in the Message, “Moving Into Unity With All That Is” (p. 363-365 in The Collected Works). For me it explains a great deal about the specific journey I (and others here) are on and the significance of what we are experiencing as fellow travelers:


Illustration by Zack Downey at

“Now, each of you carries within you the codes that make up your personality as it was designed by your Oversoul. You have “designer genes” (pardon our pun) and you are designed to make the appropriate choices to make it through the times that lie just ahead. Nonetheless, for reasons that you will understand better once you HAVE attained full consciousness again, it is necessary for you to again learn to be in unity with everything around you and it is necessary for you to have lots of practice in disengaging and detaching from the drama. You have all made this trip before, long ago, when you first incarnated into a body of flesh. Before that, you were vastly expanded consciousnesses, unembodied and much less limited.

You have already made it “up the scale” through the various densities of experience, and from the higher densities, you responded to a call for your participation in the present drama. Then you came down again, accepted the partial amnesia that accompanied your “fall” down through the levels to arrive in a body on 3D Earth, and now you are finding your way back up to where you were before. By the end of this entire process, those of you who are our soul family will find yourselves back in the experience of being vastly expanded consciousnesses again. Some of you actually sustain entire creations. But before that occurs, you have a certain job to perform and that is to re-attain that state of unity with all things and from that platform of higher consciousness, carry out your tasks for the evacuation and the colonization of Terra.

Your consciousness has already been moving in that direction for quite a while. Many of you have become even more sensitive than you have been most of your life because of the clearings of your cellular memory, and that can present quite a challenge when trying to operate and survive within such a dense field of consciousness as that which exists on 3D Earth at this time. However, you were created with all of the inner resources to not just survive in this density, but ultimately to thrive in it. You might have to revise your definitions of what constitutes “thriving,” as so many pictures of the “good life” seem to include a lot of material possessions and large properties in which to house them.

From OUR perspective, a life is “good” based on how you FEEL about living it! Have you ever heard about a person who seemed to have everything possible and who committed suicide or was hospitalized for depression? THINGS can’t make you happy. Your inner satisfaction is what makes you happy. You can rejoice in your ability to FEEL emotions, TASTE flavors, SMELL fresh air or the fragrance of a flower, and SEE the tenderness between a parent and its child. You can take satisfaction in your aliveness. If you have done as we advised and simplified your life, you might be astonished to discover how simple your needs actually are. You might also be astonished by how many things you are encouraged to buy aren’t really necessary for a “good life,” one that pleases you.”

I certainly feel that I am moving back into a vastly expanded consciousness and away from the self-image my ego provided as part of its role in fulfilling my script. At the time I am writing this, so much of that former identity (including expectations about my 4D expression, Adonna) has fallen away, I am no longer sure WHO I am. All I know is that this transition is proceeding and there’s no going back to anything I was before.

Dear Traveler, great post with much food for thought. Traveler is the name you have given yourself now, I knew you first as Sara but understand your desire to let the others go. At first I thought it not specific enough, as we are all travelers. Since there is only one of us here is seems perfect.
I worked in hypnotherapy for many years and thought I was working with clients past or future lives until I realized they were all going on simultaneously. I too experience astral projection most clearly at night. I sleep flat on my back and never move my body. In the morning when I get up I see one indent on my pillow from my head. It seems the majority of my dreams are clearly about me in other life streams going on. This has been strong since my NDE in1990 where I met with dozens of other me souls. I also experience leaving my body during the day for short times, did not think of astral projection. It is more troubling during the day as it happens 5-10 times a day that I come back and really have to focus on what I was doing. Thanks for clarifying. You have so much to share, keep writing.

May 29, 2016 at 3:51 PM


Thank you for sharing all of that. I have not had an NDE, although I have spontaneously experienced/remembered details from other lives that had been harvested back into my Oversoul. I like your term, “other me” souls. It reflects a lot of “how it is,” namely that a given life only occurs once, but is accessible through the Oversoul that creates it along with those others. I don’t know what else there is to write about, but I’m sure something will show up.

After she had completed her work for Life Before Life, Helen Wambach teamed up with Chet Snow and Leo Sprinkle to do a study where they took 2,500 people 150 and 300 years forward in time to see what they saw. The data was published in the book, Mass Dreams of the Future (now also out of print) and defined 6 mutually exclusive futures that arose out of this one shared reality. Terra was not in their data, nor were a couple of other futures I was aware of through other sources, but at least it was a good confirmation of my thinking that there would be several different futures and each person is drawn to what will be theirs.

“it is necessary for you to again learn to be in unity with everything around you and it is necessary for you to have lots of practice in disengaging and detaching from the drama.”

So true. I use the analogy of finding the soap in the bath scooting around with your hands while on the level of soap is no good. Raise your perspective eg stand up and you’ll see the soap clearly enough to grab it. While in the drama you are living out your personal folly. I have found many doses of meditation take me out of all this.

I am not sure if is the heat (42 C with humidex factor) we are currently in Sydenham experiencing but getting up early to work in my garden at 7 am by noon I am done and also in another world of awareness. Everything seems so far away.

At 77 this is possibly my last garden and as I plant I often think will I be here to harvest? Some see this as gloomy but I have had such a terrific life, have never been happier and would relish ‘going out’ in this bliss mood.

I look at the world around me as on the news and just can’t relate to it. I feel more contact seeing the little creatures going about their business in ‘my’ garden wasps catching spiders, spiders rolling their egg ball, the song of birds. Such variety and all busy with their lives, like me. It is a privilege I have to be here in this beauty.

“Many of you have become even more sensitive than you have been most of your life ”

When my kundalini rose in 1962 I became very sensitive to others energies and an empath. For a while crowded shopping centres just blew me away. Maharishi told me I should learn to distinguish between being sensitive and being weak but gave no further advice except to find it very funny that I could get sick just walking down the road.

I am no longer sure WHO I am. All I know is that this transition is proceeding and there’s no going back to anything I was before. ”

I think that is terrific. Knowledge is a big barrier to progress. I used to teach Tai Chi and the moment you think you know you’ve stopped learning. It is all steps on the path and quite to where is also a mystery. Avoid convictions based on experience: those are milestones we take for the goal. Life is very MYSTERIOUS.
You are right to embrace it.

¿Sabes Viajero? Antes de saber sobre la Operación Terra, estuve leyendo The Power of Now de Eckhart Tolle, donde habla extensivamente sobre el ego y el ser verdadero. Después de eso, llegó a mis manos otro libro: Mensajeros del Alba de Bárbara Marciniak, hay una parte muy similar a lo que tú escribiste aquí, dice así:

Many of you may have the feeling that you have done this before. You have. This is your multidimensional memory of when you have gone to other systems and done the same thing. It is a very familiar process because, characteristically, as members of the Family of Light, this is what you do. You inform systems. You go in and reconstruct realities, and you are experts at it.

You lost your memory of the process because you came here to operate under the same laws as everyone else. Therefore, you came in as human with your memory completely erased.
You knew before you arrived that losing your memory was part of the process, and you specifically picked the moment of time and the parentage that would give you the best connection to energetically and genetically bring about your purpose.

When you incarnated into the Earth plane, you received certain matched and paired recessive genes holding light codes that gave you the highest opportunity to develop psychic and intuitive abilities. In addition, these genes carried some memory that separated you from others, even though you could not name it. With these powers and talents, it has been your task to build on your life and allow the momentum to lead you into something different than most humans.
As an extensive mutation occurs on the inside of humans, also stimulated from the outside by those who are assisting you in this genetic upliftment, you must act and integrate what is awakening within you.

Let us give you a scenario here. Picture yourself as a member of the Family of Light, not looking anything like you look right now. Click into your cosmic identity. You are in a classroom, and an instructor is speaking to you, giving you the highlights of the assignment of returning to Earth to become part of the system in order to change it.
You are very much at the top of your profession; you believe yourself to be an impeccable systems buster.
In this class, you are in great humor because the professor is explaining something to you:
“When you go down to Earth, believe it or not, you are going to need to have us come and instruct you because you won’t remember any of this.”
And all of you systems busters laugh because you know that, as cool as you are now, once you submerge yourself, you will not remember this classroom.
The professor says, “Watch this. We will show you pictures. See, there we are coming through a vehicle, and there you are in your human disguise, and you act as if you don’t know what is going on, This is part of your assignment.” You are briefed on all of this, you understand?

Me identifiqué mucho con el Libro y entendí que el Creador ( ahí lo llaman Creador Principal ) es TODAS LAS COSAS.

Los mensajes de las huestes dieron justo directo en el centro de mi corazón. Y tus experiencias significan mucho para mi, gracias por todo y cuídate muy bien.

P.S. En mi nuevo trabajo encontré los aceites esenciales DO TERRA, creo que mi patrona los adquirió… Me pregunto si tú eres parte de ello. Je! Bye.

[Google translation of first and last paragraphs of what Adelita said:

“Do you know Traveler? Before I knew about Operation Terra, I was reading The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle, where he talks extensively about ego and being true. After that, another book came into my hands: Messengers of the Alba by Barbara Marciniak, there is a part very similar to what you wrote here, it says: (quotes from Marciniak follow)

…I became very identified with the Book and understood that the Creator (there called it the Main Creator) is ALL THINGS.

The messages of the hosts got right straight into the center of my heart. And your experiences mean a lot to me, thanks for everything and take good care of yourself.

P.S. In my new work I found the essential oils DO TERRA, I think my employer bought them … I wonder if you are part of it. Je! Bye.”]


I found my way to Barbara Marciniak’s book, Bringers of the Dawn, when it first came out. Much of the book did not feel like it was “mine”, but I DID relate strongly to the idea that I was a “systems buster,” or at least that sort of explained why I had felt so different all of my life. What you quoted is not in that book, so this is the first time I have seen it. It is very similar to the kinds of ideas that are presented in Michael Newton’s first two books about planning what will happen in our lives before we incarnate and then forgetting it.

However, I will say that I don’t view myself as a systems buster today. The OT material tells us that there is nothing to stop and nothing to fix. I like to think of creating something entirely new, rather than try to fix the present paradigm. I don’t think it CAN be fixed, nor is it supposed to be fixed. It serves as the platform from which to explore many new possibilities, only one of which will be Terra.

I AM familiar with the line of essential oils called Do Terra, but I prefer the products offered at Hopewell Essential Oils, which meet our needs better.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us here.

[Google translation:
“Encontré mi camino al libro de Barbara Marciniak, Bringers of the Dawn, cuando salió por primera vez. Gran parte del libro no se sentía como si fuera “mío”, pero me relacioné fuertemente con la idea de que yo era un “intruso de sistemas”, o al menos eso explicaba por qué me había sentido tan diferente toda mi vida. Lo que usted cita no está en ese libro, así que esta es la primera vez que lo veo. Es muy similar a los tipos de ideas que se presentan en los dos primeros libros de Michael Newton sobre la planificación de lo que sucederá en nuestras vidas antes de encarnar y luego olvidarlo.

Sin embargo, diré que hoy no me veo como un intruso de sistemas. El material de OT nos dice que no hay nada que detener y nada que arreglar. Me gusta pensar en crear algo completamente nuevo, en lugar de intentar arreglar el paradigma actual. No creo que se puede fijar, ni se supone que se fija. Sirve como la plataforma desde la que explorar muchas nuevas posibilidades, sólo una de las cuales será Terra.

Estoy familiarizado con la línea de aceites esenciales llamada Do Terra, pero prefiero los productos ofrecidos en Hopewell Essential Oils, que satisfacen mejor nuestras necesidades.

Tienes razón confundí el libro. Esto pertenece a la misma autora pero el libro se llama Earth: Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library.

Ciertamente no hay nada que arreglar, aún así siento que Terra es un plan brillante.
Gracias por tu pronta respuesta y saludos a todos los involucrados.

You’re right, I mistook the book. This belongs to the same author but the book is called Earth: Pleiadian Keys to the Living Library.

Thank you for your prompt response and greetings to all involved.”]


I read the manuscript of that book before it went into print. Marciniak’s sources are reptilians, who refer to themselves as “Lizzies” and say that they have come back to this time to correct their own present, which is still in our future. In the book you refer to, there is information recommending the smearing of menstrual blood onto rocks to grant power to women. This is something that felt very “off” to me when I read it.

Marciniak and Barbara Hand Clow (the publisher) both had lifetimes in the Aztec community when the reptilians requires human sacrifice. The blood and hearts of the living victims were given to the reptilians who were beneath the altar. There are many apparent similarities between what Marciniak wrote and what the Hosts have said, but there are also key differences that lead me to take what the Hosts have said as my truth and set aside what Marciniak wrote.

I have not read anything more recent by Marciniak, but in what I HAVE read of her material, there were two points I felt were not in keeping with my values and understanding. One is that she says that there will not be any earth changes, that they have already happened and we are confusing our memories of them with the future events. The second is that she was heavily polarized against the power elites, and that is not in keeping with the Operation Terra perspective, which recognizes that everything exists because Infinite Beingness desires it.

[Google translation:
“Leí el manuscrito de ese libro antes de que se publicara. Las fuentes de Marciniak son reptiles, que se refieren a sí mismos como “Lizzies” y dicen que han vuelto a este momento para corregir su propio presente, que todavía está en nuestro futuro. En el libro al que se refiere, hay información que recomienda la mancha de sangre menstrual en las rocas para otorgar poder a las mujeres. Esto es algo que me sentí muy “apagado” cuando lo leí.

Marciniak y Barbara Hand Clow (la editora) tuvieron vida en la comunidad azteca cuando los reptiles necesitaron sacrificio humano. La sangre y el corazón de las víctimas vivientes fueron dados a los reptiles que estaban debajo del altar. Hay muchas aparentes similitudes entre lo que Marciniak escribió y lo que los anfitriones han dicho, pero también hay diferencias clave que me llevan a tomar lo que los anfitriones han dicho como mi verdad y dejar de lado lo que escribió Marciniak.

No he leído nada más reciente por Marciniak, pero en lo que he leído de su material, había dos puntos que sentía que no estaban de acuerdo con mis valores y comprensión. Una es que dice que no habrá cambios en la tierra, que ya han ocurrido y estamos confundiendo nuestros recuerdos de ellos con los eventos futuros. La segunda es que ella estaba fuertemente polarizada contra las élites del poder, y eso no está de acuerdo con la perspectiva de la Operación Terra, la cual reconoce que todo existe porque el Ser Infinito lo desea.”]

Hola otra vez, gracias por la aclaración. Tambien ciertas partes de sus libros las percibo distantes de mi sentir. ¿Sabes? Toda la historia de los aztecas es muy importante para México, una mezcla de orgullo y misticismo. Y eso que dijiste de los reptilianos bajo el altar me ha dejado impresionada. ¡Eso no está en los libros de primaria de mi país! Lol

Gracias por todo compañera viajera.

[Google translation:

Hi again, thanks for the clarification. Also, certain parts of his books I perceive distant from my feeling. You know? The whole history of the Aztecs is very important for Mexico, a mixture of pride and mysticism. And what you said about the reptilians under the altar has impressed me. That’s not in the primary books of my country! LOL

Thanks for everything, traveling companion.]
