TI and DO – #95 – Listing Our Task – 02-14-1984 (audio transcription)

Tape Log entry: 095 – 02/14/84 – Listing our task. DSTody’s task-STM’s task-slaves of credit. Utilities-BRNody’s task. 45 min.
TI and DO audio transcription of meeting to a small group of students at “retreat” in townhouses (one for students and one for Links) east of downtown Dallas, TX in close view of the skyline.  Retreat groups brought the tapes back to the main “craft” so the rest of the students could listen to it.

DO: One of the things that we think is interesting about this new understanding is that you get to see so much identifiable, we get to see clearly what assignment you had. In other words you get to see that the next level, we thought maybe for a while that you had picked those vehicles for what you needed, ok? And now we see that a little differently. That not only, sure you needed the strength and effort that it took to make those vehicles do what, the task that they were to do, but in a sense you were assigned tasks just like one of your assigned such and such tasks in the craft or certain out-of-craft tasks and so forth you were assigned tasks to put the energy in that – in the specific areas of the problems of the vehicle that you were given.
In other words I don’t feel any longer that you picked them out as much as I feel like they were picked for you, and I want TI to stop me if she disagrees with it. She may have shed more light on it, but you’ve, it seems to me that if you picked them out it was because you were told to pick out ones that had these characteristics, but I don’t know if you would be able to do that. Seems awfully likely to me that the Next Level participated pretty strongly in picking out the tools for you according to what they needed.
Now it’s interesting to see because it’s so identifiable now what tasks are now, for example look at Dstody’s tasks. Can you see what Dstody’s? Or what now Dstody has several tasks with his vehicle but let’s take, we’ll just use his, one of his tasks as an example. Dstody has known ever since he’s been in the classroom that his vehicle had difficulty getting beyond thinking in terms of prejudice. Seeing others as seeing him in a lower way because he was black, and to me Dstody’s task, if he does it well, is to think and act in terms of never seeing color.
See we’re very opposed to, just because it’s Next Level way, we are very opposed to organizations that identify themselves as things that, that what should be done is their identification erased. Like for example we noted something on the news about a gay organization at SMU was trying to get permission to, I think it was SMU, to have say in politics of university and it was turned down. Well we feel that if you’re going to have a gay organization then you got to have a straight organization. You got to have a heterosexual organization.
You see what we’re saying? That doesn’t make any sense. In other words nobody should want to identify themselves in a way that they’re trying to eliminate being identified. You see what we’re saying? Because theoretically what the gays should be wanting is for you to not see him as a gay. Anymore than a heterosexual wants you to see him, he wants you to see him as a person right?
Now same thing a black organization shouldn’t exist because that increases black consciousness. They think what they’re doing is promoting elements of freedom for blacks and they’re doing just the opposite. They are increasing black consciousness, and Dstody’s task should be, if he can get his vehicle to have zero awareness of his color, and never see anyone’s actions towards him as related to color, then he will have done a very good job in one area of his assignment. Can you follow that?
Look at Stmody’s, part of the task that Stmody was given with the vehicle that he chose, and the current problems out there in the world of people who have over-eating difficulties.  Addictions to over-eating and really problems, serious problems.  So Stmody has an excellent identifiable task of sending out the organized objective way of controlling consuming, and changing the programming of his genes. As he changes the programming of his genes, those genes will communicate with all those genes out there who have that same problem. They all have telephone lines, and every one of you as you look at the things you can identify. Sometimes I think TI and I should give you the assignment of writing us a little note -writing us a little list of the tasks that you were given that you can identify by the vehicle that you have.  In other words it’s like if I give you a task to do something in carpentry work, and it’s going to require a hammer, screw-driver, pliers, nails, then those are the things you need for that task.
Now for your task it might have been anger, sensuality, black, you know but you could, you should be able to identify them as a task, and know that as you get those genes programmed, clearly when you counter the programming of those genes, repetitiously counter the programming of those genes, before you permit them to play out their tapes, because each time you let a tape play and you counter it, you’ve broken even, you haven’t made any head-way. Can you see that? If you let a tape play, and then re-program it, you’re no better off, then you were before the tape played. It’s when you recognize the fact that the tape wants to play, and you re-program that you’re up one. Can you follow that? When you catch it before the programming takes place. So I don’t know if TI agrees but it might be interesting for all of you to sit down and write a little list of the tools, of your task and the list would have the areas that you have recognized that your vehicle is primitive. The areas that you recognize that your vehicle is less than civilized, civilized being judged by perfect Next Level conduct. You want to add something to that?
TI: No.
DO: (laughs)
Well, should I shut it off? Do you have any questions?
Srfody: You want to make that list and send it too?
DO: I think so, keep a copy and send one to Links a little list of your tools, yeah it’s like that vehicle you have is your tool-box, and all the tools you have in it to use are the characteristics of that vehicle that are less than perfect Next Level conduct.
Swyody: I want to see how much, how intricate, like our task might be, and don’t want to get off on a tangent by thinking like, like I can see all the procedures you have given us. If we follow them one hundred percent then each one of those procedures sends something out. I was thinking, even brushing my teeth for instance, if you have tooth problems you brush your teeth twice a day.” Would that kind of thing go out to the humans?
DO: Can’t help it as long as you, that kind of thing does go out, but those are minor upgrading of civilization. The major upgrading are the changing of the problems. Now don’t forget these problems that we mentioned a minute ago like race consciousness or anger, these weaknesses of the vehicle, they’re really only because they are plants that are not developed, have not yet become healthy.
You know really there’s nothing morally wrong with any of those things because humans were taught that they were moral. They were given a moral concept, a moral consciousness in order to motivate them to correct certain things. Just like they were given a fear of certain things in order to motivate correction, but it’s the genetic things that you as an individual, or your vehicle as an individual, has, that is less than Next Level civilized. It’s those things that are primary efforts of your task.
The things that we do as a group and as a craft. All the procedures that we follow as we upgrade you know. They all [happen] out there. I don’t know if you ever spent any time looking back. Just in little ways, not in ways that are not good to look back, but I can see in the years that we were traveling around the country, and our class was forming and gathering, and we had no money. We certainly couldn’t think of buying a car. Our upgrading our living standard because we were at zero, for quite a while and the world was, that was happening to them.
Houses weren’t selling, nobody was buying cars they were all willing to drive junk-heaps up and down the street when before they wouldn’t of been caught dead in them, and everything that was happening, because of where our energy was directed, was for the most part, happening there also, and now you can see it changing, even in these insignificant ways you can see it changing as it’s changing for you. You can see their economy getting better, their ability to take care of themselves better and get a better car again and upgrade but they’re doing it more carefully, than they were doing it before.
Now there’s still some ailments that are very serious that we don’t  know exactly, what’s going to or how we can help them like the fact that humans in order to do those things become so completely slaves of credit, and they’ve got to learn not to do that, and why did they let this world of people out there get to be extremely rich – that are taking advantage of the fact that these people are all living on credit.
A lot of them couldn’t pay for the things that they are now indebted to pay for, if they didn’t have big insurance policies that would pay for them, upon their death.  In other words they’ve bought policies to cover paying for those things if they die, and a lot of them have more indebtedness than they could possibly ever pay out, and yet they go right on each day and go out and charge something more, and the world knows that they can’t pay those things out, but the whole structure has been built that way. Even with the national governments and their own indebted.
TI: Well what they really need to work on mostly, I know they need to get off this credit thing but they need to get utilities down. In other words it’s almost ridiculous the way they handle the utilities. Way back years ago utilities took just a small amount of your income, and now it takes, your utilities run almost as much as your house payment if not more, which is an awful lot.
DO: And this just isn’t utilities that we have to pay because so many people using them, the average persons utilities have proportionately gotten astronomical.
TI: We talked to a little old man the other day and I guess he was 67 isn’t it what he told us?”
DO: (agrees)
TI: And he owned a home, he just told us his life history, just all in a nutshell (TI & DO laughing) and he owned a home that he bought in 1947 and his payments never ran over 81 dollars a month or 57 or something
DO: Something
TI: And he said just recently after this severe cold-spell that they had that his gas bill was close to 500 dollars, 487 dollars. Now that’s almost ridiculous, if…
DO: And it’s a very, very small little house you know it’s…
TI: It has to be it’s just a small frame home…
DO: It was a little G.I. framed home, the kind that you could buy in the 1940’s which was a little bitty place.
TI: …and he said he doesn’t like things real warm, but he said he didn’t feel like they were extravagant, and yet it ran that much. And here he was 2 years past retirement and he’s still working, and what if he wasn’t working and was living on social security or whatever they lived on, how could he afford to pay that? Now it just doesn’t make sense that the utilities are as high as they are, water, gas, electricity, all of them are high, and in comparison now the water of course it isn’t as high – as except at south craft water pipe burst but, in general the water isn’t as high as the gas and electricity but that’s the next place that they need to work on, getting it corrected because…
DO: We feel that the taxes people pay, should almost like socialized medicine, that there should be a government method of taking care of utilities, subsidizing utilities. Just like there should be a government method of taking care of healthcare, and old-folks homes. Things of that sort, [that] we’re really behind in not doing that, because we still have taxes that go to buy the president’s wife’s wardrobe, you know that doesn’t. I don’t know if you understand what we are talking about but, the structure of what your taxes pay for is really, needs a lot of help and a lot of correction, and they should be paying for things that are absolute necessities where it’s just inhumane to have people who are not capable of producing any funds, to have them not able to pay their utilities.
That doesn’t – that is not fair. That is not right, and it’s just because in a society like this one, those who had money years ago and were able to go out and buy a great deal of property – then property is un-attainable, to most. Do you see what we are saying?
And therefore they can’t have anything that can turn into money. So they have to then learn shenanigans or new, well shenanigans is the best term I can think of, new ways to take advantage of the public and something that seems to be a new idea in order to make money, and if you are not programmed to care to do that kind of thing, to make money, then your livelihood is very, very inhibited, and it’s not – the motivation is misplaced.
Now these are significantly, are relatively insignificant things. The significant things, it’s just like Swyody said about the toothbrush and then the things, these things we’re just now mentioning are not nearly as important as changing over, getting rid of the weaknesses and the unhealthy conditions of the vehicles that would cause them to act in such primitive ways, but at the same time they need to upgrade some of these social conducts.
TI: I was just going to add to that utility thing that. At night I don’t know if you all can see it but there’s a building where the lights are on, on the outside just about all night, and it’s a tall building.
DO: You could glance down this little street tonight after it’s dark. And look toward town at the number of the buildings that are totally lit up all night long.
TI: And let’s say their light bill runs about 20,000 dollars a month, which we have heard where some of them do, and just think what that building has to do in order to pay that light bill? You know like let’s say it’s an insurance company or something. It’s got to make enough money to pay that light bill, every month right? So it has to up its price, whatever it is, in order to make the payments and, in other words, it’s almost like a vicious cycle because everybody has to up their price in order to take care of their expenses.
Food, grocery stores I’m sure have to pay a tremendous amount of electricity to keep their store cool and, or warm or their electric lights on, freezer frozen, and it has to show up in the amount of money that they have to charge you all, you know in order to make their expenses. What we’re getting at – we’re trying to put the idea into the ether so that they will start seeing how ridiculous it is to have privately owed utilities. Now the telephone have managed to keep their  bills, their charges pretty low, but the gas and the lights have not. They keep changing the meters so upping the cost to the kilowatts until it’s just out of site or something.
DO: And we feel they’re capable of tapping the knowledge from the Next Level to move to energy sources that would change that altogether, but it also, probably why that isn’t happening now, is because they need to make the adjustment in different ways. They’re spending the money in the wrong ways, and they need to be forced to reduce that excessive spending before they’re given new ways of doing it.
I want to go back to what we said a moment ago about you writing a little list, of the tools that you have. How you word, each sentence on that little list is going to show us how you’re thinking about, in terms of the programming of that weakness or that problem with your vehicle. In other words the way you word that list is going to show us the kind of programming you’re doing in that area and will show us how successful, how strong, your programming is. Do you understand what we’re saying? So be aware of how you word it, be very aware of how you word it, and then, if you think it has helped you word it in a way that would improve your constant re-programming effort, then be aware of that. Am I making sense? Like some of you see your problems in the wrong way and therefore if we asked you to write it down you would write it down a way, that really wouldn’t give you maximum benefit as a re-programming selection. So if you see the weaknesses of the vehicle, the needs of the vehicle in the most objective, most right way, you’ll get maximum benefit from the program. You follow that?
Ollody: And in my understanding that when we turn in the list, it would show what the problem area is and what the correction would be, in other words what we’re trying to correct it with?
DO: Well how about this, let’s make it, each one of your lists, you give us a sentence telling what, in a nutshell, what it is that you’re – I’ll take Dstody for example, and the race thing we were talking about and one of the tools he has is the tool of removing color consciousness, eliminating color consciousness. Now see if he is programming that, and that level, every time that thought of color enters his mind, he would get maximum program benefit, but if he’s programming it at the level of, I’m tired of having to fight off the fact that you’re seeing me as a black and you’re prejudice against blacks, and then he turns around and tells his vehicle, no I’m not going to accept that black programming. You see he’s, that’s a very low-level of treatment. That’s a very primitive level of treatment, or elementary level of treatment, but every time that any thought try to come in his mind, relative to race or color, he would immediately say sorry I have no color consciousness, you can’t stimulate it in me. It isn’t there, doesn’t exist. You don’t see me that way, I don’t see you that way, I refuse to accept it.
Now his sentence is going to show what he would program each time with his tool, and in a brief statement, what you would program. Now look at the programming, the excellent programming list that Brnody has, in relationship to the task of assisting people who have the difficulties that her vehicle presents.
(Swy: Brnody had osteoporosis so by then was mostly in a wheel chair)
Now is she going to take it at that same level and say, oh nobody knows really how badly I hurt and how hard it is for me to get around, and then say to the vehicle, oh vehicle I’m just not going to accept that even though I know it’s true, (DO laughs) – you see that kind of programming isn’t, is a very elementary level of programming.
So what you want to do is, you might want to make your list several times, and then see if you can come up with a way of stating each tool in the highest way you can state it, and that statement is the program you’re going to send out each time that weakness is stimulated. Or each time that weakness is emitted, and then give us your little list, ok? And you keep a list ok? Wanna do that?
Srfody: A little bit on the side note, let’s say there’s something that you feel, like an aspect of working with your vehicle but you’ve been able to feel like it’s in control or it works with or had some success in it or something, and how… Let’s say how does that, can use characteristics that might be ok but you aren’t, like some characteristics you have to work against more but other characteristics are the ones that kind of helped you out because you know that you are not that bad in one area. How does that, how is that related to helping others with our task? How does that fit in?
DO: I don’t think you, it doesn’t, because what you’re concerned with is, what you are concerned with are the weak, undeveloped characteristics. This is not the way, like in a segment you would tap the stronger characteristics to assist you in working against the weaker ones. This wouldn’t come up that way, and so a lot of the weaknesses are merely aren’t as identifiable as others and the good exercise that you’re going to have is can you discover? Do you really know what should be on your list? Do you really know what your tools are? The purpose of your job, do you know the purpose of your job? All the little things on the job, because frequently we find that individuals can go a long time and not even recognize that that’s an area that they need to put effort into, because maybe it isn’t as obvious as something like Dstody’s or Stmody’s or Brnody’s – not that that’s the only thing that Brnody or Stmody and Dstody have on their list either.
(TI asks DO something quietly)
DO: Sure, TI’s been discussing how your, if you keep your mind on your task, then you don’t allow yourself to slip into a state where your vehicle becomes animate and then begins to respond in such a way that you lose sight of where your higher vibrations should be, and she reminded us that if you kept that 12 minute check going, if you were. You know I feel, if I go a period of time longer than 12 minutes without thinking about is there anything I can do to do my task better, if I go longer than that, I feel lost in time. Now I want you to understand what I mean when I say lost in time. I feel like that time is going to stand still for me, and I am making no progress, I am not. In other words it’s like, because I don’t know how you feel, I want to do my task and do it well and get it over with as quickly as I can, and get on to the next task. I don’t like extended periods of task. I don’t like to do, and I know that TI doesn’t, I can’t stand an extended task. I’ve got one but (TI and DO laughing) it doesn’t, I don’t mean it disrespectfully.
TI: We don’t like to extend it any longer than it has to be. (TI laughs)
DO: But I don’t want to extend it a moment further than I have to extend it, and therefore, like I can’t stand to see somebody approach a task, a human approach a task, and say well this at least got, I can take the morning up. I’ll at least be able to get rid of the morning by doing this task, and it’s a task that can be done in 30 minutes, and they’ll take an hour or two or three to do it because they have nothing else to do. To us if it can be done in 30 minutes then it should be done in 30 minutes. It should be done as quickly as you can do it without being careless.
Now with that concept in mind, you want to do every task as quickly as it can be done well. Then anytime you’re not doing your task, you’re wasting time. In other words you’re making zero progress. Now that you see that your task is working on the weaknesses of those vehicles, anytime you slip into a frame of mind, when you are not where you should be in order to be working on your task with those vehicles. In other words any the time the vehicle is in control, instead of the mind operating the tool, then you have thrown all that time away. You are extending your task. You are not only doing a poor job of your assignment, you’re extending your task, you’re hanging yourself in your own agony because all of you want the task to end, and get into another one. I can’t see how you would find any pleasure in extending it. Do you find any pleasure in extending it? Goodness I don’t. Therefore the point we’re making is if you are, if it is constantly hammering on your mind, what more can I do at this moment? Now what more means, with the task I have now, what is the task you have? The areas of the weaknesses of your vehicles, and procedures and things like that so anytime you slip in…
I’m going to stop in the middle of that sentence and back-off to something I said a moment ago about any time your vehicle is animate. In other words, anytime your vehicle is a living thing, then the mind can’t use it. I want to keep my vehicle in-animate  and my mind, the only thing that’s animate.
DO you understand that? Now anytime my vehicle is animate, and is acting like a human, vibrating on any of the characteristics of the, that other humans with like-vehicles would act on. Any time this vehicle would act according to its genetic structure, then it is animate and I have left the tool aside some place and then taken a nap, but if I keep my tools in my hands all the time and, in other words, it’s like when one problem surfaces then I pick up the hammer, when another problem is there I pick up the pliers. Now anytime, and you’re so on guard that you want to know what tool do I need? And you know that by any of the ways that the vehicle is trying to act humanly. Then you know exactly what tool to pick up, but if you start letting that vehicle get away with that human response, the mind has taken a recess, and is letting the tool itself become an animate object acting no different from any other genetic living creature. You see what we’re saying? At that moment you are turning into the world, because the world is what vibrates on that genetic level.
Anytime you let the vehicle act like a human you’re turning into the world, and not the Next Level. I mean you’re literally taking the tuner on your radio, and tuning into the vibrations of the world. When you give into because it’s sending out those vibrations genetically, constantly, and you can find them if you want to any second, 24 hours a day. You can find those signals if you want to tune in your receiver on those vibrations but you’ve got to keep yours at a, really no-signal. You got to keep your receiver on receiving nothing, only sending. You want to be only transmitters, the only thing that, once it begins to receive a signal, or once you begin to receive a signal, from the genetic structure, your vehicle, from the world or from time-capsule release of its own genes, that is when you become a transmitter and refuse to be a receiver. Can you follow that analogy?
TI: Once you become more of a transmitter and less receiver, the faster we can move, which we…
DO: If you’re a transmitter you can’t lose control, you might have all kinds of bombardment, but you will have all that bombardment under control. If you maintain the position of a transmitter you will have everything you have to deal with under control. That doesn’t mean you won’t have a lot to deal with. It just means you have it under control and that’s all that counts. You don’t any longer wish that you didn’t have it to deal with, that’s like saying Next Level I wish you’d take my task away, I really don’t want to do it. I really don’t want this opportunity to grow and know this information to increase my capacity in that department, in the Next Level. You see what I am saying?
Ollody: If something was a major problem a couple years ago, and I know that it’s still there, it’s not something I can just let my guard down about but it’s something I feel I have gotten it under enough control that it’s not a major problem anymore. Would I list that? What I’m saying to you?
DO: I think so because it still has been a major problem of the genetic structure of your vehicle. I would never even be so brave as you have been just now.
Ollody: What?
DO: In your statement just now.
Ollody: Oh I understand. (TI & DO, and class laughs).
DO: Yeah because I don’t consider any difficulty that I have had in controlling this vehicle, I don’t consider any of those areas dormant, even though I may not have – I might have been successful in keeping them at bay for extended periods of time, and they may have not even reared their face to give me any significant attention, but there’s not one single one of them that I would trust, would leave me alone til’ tomorrow. Even those that might have left me alone a year or two. Just knock on wood (hear 3 knocks on table) that they might have done that. Do you see what I’m saying? Go ahead.
Ollody: Well they’ve done it before and (TI & DO laughing) I’m aware of what I’m talking about, that’s what I meant when I wouldn’t let my guard down.
DO: Yes, yes in other words we’re not going to misinterpret your list as to mean that…
TI: That’s what you’re doing
DO: … you are currently, necessarily, involved deeply in those areas but, and you don’t list it in that way, but you’re listing the programming that you would transmit each time a genetic problem of your own vehicle would want to emit a transmission.
Swyody: (unintelligible)
TI: should we turn the tape off [over]?
DO: If you don’t mind. (DO laughing)
DO: We talked a minute about… (Loud Jet soaring overhead) I don’t know where to start, but let’s say that, oh them, those planes are driving us crazy aren’t they? They keep penetrating our filter (DO and class laughs).
TI: We’re sitting on the runway I guess. ( TI laughing)
DO: Oh lord (continuous laughter) and the windows are all open in retreat. We talked about how you don’t need to know whether or not the things that you might be bombarded with are from the source of your own genes or whether they are from the source of the world. If you are under control and your vibration is exactly where it should be, and your conduct is where it should be, and you’re not being disturbed by the bombardment, you are not letting it affect you in any way – it’s not interrupting, interfering with anything, it’s just coming your way, and you’re applying the programming to refute it or to upgrade it to improve it, to change it – then it is probably programming of the world, that is coming at you. But once it changes your vibration, if you let that programming change your own vibration, then you become out of control. You can’t send a good, clear, appropriate program to change it or refute it.
Now also if you’re getting bombardment and you’re out of control, it’s likely your own genes. Whether they were stimulated from something from out there, or from something in your own history, genetic history, is unimportant, it doesn’t matter. Do you see what we’re saying? But if you are out of control, then your own genes in those areas are being stimulated, and what you want to do is keep those genes in your own vehicle, under perfect control so that any time you receive bombardment in the areas of weaknesses of your vehicle, it does not change you in any way. Your countenance, your conduct, your effectiveness, you are merely, the moment you recognize that something is headed your way then you immediately apply the program to change it and continue to apply the program to change it and go on about doing what you’re doing, at the same time, and then you are effectively doing your task that you were sent to do. If you let that bombardment change your vibration, you lose control. It interferes with what you’re doing and you are not doing your task. You follow that? Because your task is sending the appropriate re-programming and not letting it, which you can’t do if you’re affected, right? Is that clear? Is that clear?
TI: Quick.
(end of tape)
