The Guys: On The Hierarchical Game

All great truths begin as blasphemies.
~George Bernard Shaw~

This session started on another topic entirely, and then took a sharp turn into the New Age concept of "having it all". The following ensued.

GUYS: In the "New Age" Game, which is a Hierarchical Sub-Game, it was drilled in to you that YOU,... a finite being by design ...should aspire to being infinite. That's part of the Hierarchical' Game's goofball system. Do you understand. .

Client: yes.

GUYS: Within the Hierarchy, there's pretending going on. Anything to keep you feeling inadequate will be thrown into the equation. What could be more limiting, in terms of your own sense of authority and life, than to tell you that you should be able to "have it all"? Considering that you chose to come into a reality whose whole purpose was limits and boundaries, will not be able to do that.

Client: There's something wrong..

GUYS: Exactly. See, isn't that cool? The Hierarchcal Game is brilliant. The more you look into it, the more you see how meticulous, how flawlessly it's put together. It has a purpose, it has a reason for being, and it has all kinds of supportive structures that support the reason for it being. It's a great game. You're just sick and tired of it. It's a "Been there, done that, got the t-shirt".... Puleeease.... You already know what's gonna happen. Any scenario you can imagine...

Client: I could figure it out.

GUYS: It's like reading a new a mystery or novel that has an ongoing character. If you follow it for long enough, you can almost always anticipate what's going to happen... Can you see how it gets boring? The thrill is gone. OK?

So the challenge in the Transition, for you right now, is to separate out the Kid from the Adult. Everything to be done that will take you toward being exquisitely happy, profoundly content, and truly engaged in being here.... the Adult can do, and the kid just can't. The kid can't play this game because it's too scary....(Guys whine here...) "There are no rules, how do you know what to do, who will come and take care of us, what if... " and it goes on like that.

Client: Laughter

GUYS: Because an Adult can deal with all the consequences of her actions, and knows you are completely safe right now, ...holy moly, you are so supported it's silly... even if you die, you win. This is a no-lose system, There is nothing to lose. it's a GAME.

So the Adult is completely capable of wrapping their intellect around the idea that you're safe if it's a game, the Kid is not. That's why, as we explain concepts, we ask so often if you understand. We want to first make sure that you do, that you're in conscious agreement with what we're saying, and not warping yourself somehow in order to agree.

If there's a place inside you that doesn't agree, let's work it through till you come to understanding. You see, we're not trying to trick you into anything that isn't real, We're trying to help you see what's happening here. So it's like that old Plato thing - people semi-blinded coming out of the cave saying "uh-oh, what is that scary shadow over there?" We're here to say "Oh, that's O.K., that's just a tree. You're safe." ..."Are you sure? -... what's a tree?"

So as you bring your disagreement, your confusion your skepticism to the table we can tell you, "Sure, it makes sense that you would think or feel thus and such, but look at it this way, doesn't that change things?"... "Well, if you put it that way." And the reason that we can do that is because we don't depend on your taking a leap of faith intellectually into anything. Every case that we make we can make out of your own experiences... before we even came on the scene. Follow?

Client: Absolutely...that's my experience.

Guys: There's nothing that we're presenting to you that doesn't already have a support system based on things that you've already experienced. What we do is adjust the dials so that you can see it for what it really is, not for what the Hierarchy tells you it is. And this is fun for us and for you.

So you don't have to pretend anymore that there's an absolute criteria for anything. Or, that there's a God outside of you... and it's not you. You don't have to pretend that you have to work really hard to earn your way off the planet. You can stay here and play as long as you want and then when you're tired, you can go. Whenever you want. You don't have to pretend death is bad, and all illness is bad, and loss is bad, and that there's nothing to be gained from pain. You don't have to pretend that you hate to cry. You don't have to pretend that sadness has no virtue. You don't have to pretend you don't understand what's going on here.

Client: It becomes pretty obvious.

GUYS: Excellent. All right? That'll give you something to chew on for a while. As always, it's our pleasure..and Good Day.
