[tmtranscripts] Olfana on "The Treasure of Your Memories"

This is a lesson that Olfana gave to us at the 2000 California "SpiritFest"
Conference, that was held in July at Pigeon Point Lighthouse, on the
beautiful California coastline above Santa Cruz. The property surrounding
the lighthouse has been converted into a hostel, and this was where we
stayed for our conference. So, as you read this lesson, imagine the rocky
cliffs of the coast, with foamy white waves breaking over rocky tidal
outcrops, set in deep blue and azure ocean waters. Streaming down the
sunlit cliffs are the purple and magenta flowering iceplants. In the
cloud-laced sky above are gray and white sea gulls, who dive to the beach
and tidal pools, and then fly high up to perch on the top railings of the
imposing lighthouse, which towers over the entire scene. Enjoy. Love, Susan

I am the teacher, Olfana, and I am so pleased to be here with you. There is
such an interesting atmosphere in this lovely beach location, where over a
long period many people, from many generations, have spent time, all coming
here with their own sense of purpose. Quite often some people had a more
commercial purpose, building a lighthouse to protect the ships at sea.
There were some with a scientific purpose, studying the oceans, the tides,
the currents, and animals that frequent this inlet. Some came to study the
flora and fauna. Some have come simply for the beauty of the place, coming
to paint or take pictures of nature. Now that there are houses here, some
people treat this area as a resting spot and come to "get away from it all."
Your group has come here for a spiritual gathering. Because this area has
seen so many types of experiences, there are energies that permeate the land
and the atmosphere here.
When you walk outside into the fresh air and take in the view, sense not
only the natural energies, like those of the beautiful sea touching the
land, but think also of those other humans, and why they have gathered at
such a spot as this. Recognize yourself inside this timeline of human
history. Try to see yourself in this broader framework, with your limited
life in a context of these other humans who came before you. See yourself
experiencing something of the same that they have experienced. In this way,
see if you can generate within yourself a deeper sense of connection with
this history of others who lived before you on this planet, a sense that you
are still in a relationship with those who have left this world.
Your memories and experiences from a location such as this are a part of the
beauty that you keep, and share, when you pass on from this world. Indeed,
you will be able to share this beauty with others on the mansion levels in a
way that will be so much more remarkable and amazing than the way you can
now share memories. After you leave this site and return home, you see your
friends, and say of your memory,
"Oh yes, I spent a weekend at Pigeon Point Lighthouse. It was a beautiful
site. I'd never spent time before in a place like that. It had uniqueness.
And there are details..."
But when you pass on to the mansion levels, bringing with you a memory of
this world, you can share this memory in a way such that others smell the
flowers that you smelled, and see the beauty that you saw when morning
daylight first touched the leaves of the trees, and the blossoms of the
flowers. Even a memory of heartfelt love that you felt for someone can
there, in the mansion worlds, indeed, be conveyed in emotional depth to
another with whom you would share this "love memory."
Once we pass on, we can combine our worldly experiences with others, in this
greater way, to develop a remarkable collection of lifetime experiences.
So, if you never snorkeled, or climbed a giant rock cliff, on this planet,
you will be able to seek out and obtain such experiences from others who
have. And at the same time, of course, you offer them all the remarkable
precious experiences that you carry in your memory collection. Your knowing
that you will develop this remarkable "world experience" memory collection,
by giving and taking, after you pass from this planet, I hope, provides a
new incentive for you. Each time you reach out to savor some special moment
in your life, now, I encourage you to do so in a way that captures the
moment as part of a personal treasure, which you can then share with others
in your eternal life, later. Imagine, also, all the remarkable
possibilities of selection you will have from the memories that others will
share with you.
