Topic: Being a Seeker
September 12, 2015


HANS:
Hi everybody. The topic for today is "Being a Seeker." In the Bible, it says: Remember that a Seeker findeth always. A Seeker findeth always. 

What is a Seeker? A Seeker is someone who has learned that their life is a bit of an illusion and wants to see beyond the illusion... wants to see what other experiences... how they might expand their consciousness... how they might become someone other than who they are now... because time and society has molded them into a certain character, a certain mold. 

And they're looking to see what else there might be. That is why our belief system is growing so rapidly around the world... especially here around the United States and Canada. Why? Because people are looking to go beyond the norms. They're looking to expand themselves. Alfred, you went through the Seeker phase, didn't you?

ALFRED:
Yes. It's when you start realizing that the paradigms, the rules, the ways of being, that are meant for all people, may not apply to you as an individual. And that's the big thing about spirituality. Spirituality is you are are individual soul with an individual unique body with a unique life-path, a unique karma, a unique set of previous lives that led up to this life. Your experiences are going to be unique. Thus, the rules that apply to you are going to be different for you. 

How they apply to you are going to be different for you. The ones that you decide to follow, the ones that “fit” your incarnation for this life are going to be unique to you. Thus, what we say, is: A Seeker is an individual finding his or her own unique path in this life.

HANS:
Growth path... Exactly, exactly. So when you reach a point that you say: This... whatever "this" is for you... This doesn't work anymore for me. I'm not feeling comfortable in this. I'm not feeling comfortable in what I'm doing, I'm not feeling comfortable in how I'm spending my time. Okay? All you have to do is say to Spirit: I seek a new beginning... I seek a new beginning... and I set my intention to look beyond the limitations I have allowed others and myself to place upon me. I now seek a larger experience. 

I remember a gentleman that I knew who was a fabulous computer chip designer... recognized by his peers. And one day he said to me: I need to look beyond the bowl I've placed myself in. I feel like a goldfish in a bowl. And I think you've all seen that commercial on TV that goes around today, where the goldfish jumps out of the bowl, and they put it back in the bowl. He said: That's how I felt... that he couldn't breathe anymore. 

He was not able to know even who he was. He knew what he could do, and he was very good at what he could do. I said: Well, what do you want to do? He said: I want to live in Hawaii and have a Center and teach. That's what I want to do. I knew it for a long time. And coming from where he was, he would require a partner to help him to do that. And one day, in his 60's, that partner, she came along... and they both shared the same vision. 

Today, that person and the partner have a Center in Hawaii doing very well and they're very happy. How did that happen? Because he set his intention to serve. He set his intention to be the Seeker he always wanted to be and he stopped looking backwards to go forwards. So, a Seeker says: Yes, I can. Yes, I am. You've had that experience before, haven't you Alfred?

ALFRED:
Yes. And basically what we're talking about here in being a Seeker is you really have two choices - to follow what society says, what your education says, what your parents say, what your family, your friends, the television, the media... to follow "that," which are generalizations meant for everybody, and look for your life in that way "or" to seek alternative ways of thinking... alternative perceptions, alternative ways of being.

We do our best to present to you through this Weekly Show, these Topics, our Products, our Classes - to present to you a lot of different perspectives to help you decide what are you going to follow, how are you going to think, how are you going to be. 

HANS:
When you decide that your existence doesn't serve you any longer, then it's time to say: Oh, who locked my door? And the truth of the matter is - that you did. You put yourself in the box and locked the door.

ALFRED:
Yes, and that's where it starts is the choice.

HANS:
It's their choice... Exactly.

ALFRED:
In this topic it is a choice to follow what society in general follows, or the choice  to seek an individual path.

HANS:
That's right. I have another lady friend of mine, who some years ago, she was a Massage Therapist... very well recognized with a very good practice out in Palo Alto, California. She didn't have a lot of money. And she said: Hans, I want to move to Hawaii. But I couldn't possibly afford to do that. I said: No,  you couldn't. So you won't get to go. 

She said: Well, why are  you saying that? I said: I'm not, you are. You're saying that. You're saying you can't afford to go. Spirit isn't saying that. I said: Since when is Spirit not your bank account? She went to her grandmother and she got a little loan. Her name is Hilda. And she watched for the best priced ticket she could get and off she went to Maui. 

And she met someone on the plane, a nice young lady, and they got to talking back and forth.. and it went along... and the short of it is she became a Real Estate Agent. She went to school, she did the massage therapy, she worked in one of the major Hotels there, she earned a living. And now she owns at least 10 or 15 properties, she's happily married, she's living in Maui, and the last time I talked to her, she said: Hans, a Seeker does find... always.

So I think what's important for all of you to understand is you all need to become Seekers. If you listen to the lovely questions that Alfred and I get every week, you can hear in the "asking" the wondering if things will change... the wondering if you'll be okay... the realization that your life often times isn't going in the direction you would like it to go. 

That's when you sit down and say: Enough... enough. You get your friends around you, I'm talking about your Spiritual Friends everybody, sit down with your beverage and you say: Oh, time for a new beginning. You see?

And the minute you say that, Spirit starts the disconnect of what's binding you. They don't look at your dharma and say: Oh, well she can't do this because of that... and she'll never be able to do this because of this. They don't do that. They say: Oh, she gets it. The Seeker is now "aware”. And that's what I want all of you to become is a Seeker who becomes "aware."

Alfred, that's what happened to you... you became "aware."

ALFRED:
Yes. You become aware that you have a choice. And that's where it starts.

HANS:
Absolutely.

ALFRED:
You have a choice to follow all of these things that everybody tells you you should follow. I don't care how much you paid for your education, I don't care what your parents' background is, what they firmly believe, what your family tried to drill into you, what the television, the media tried to pound into you - it all starts with understanding "you have a choice," "you have alternatives," and you make that choice.

HANS:
You know you say something here, Alfred, that I think is very important for people to hear. You kept saying in your speaking right now "you have a choice." Do you know that most people don't know that?

ALFRED:
That's why we're saying that.

HANS:
That's why we're here.

ALFRED:
I didn't know...

HANS:
No, you didn't...

ALFRED:
That's where it started. I didn't know I had a choice. I didn't know I had a choice. And so now we're going to be talking about our second topic which is: What is the choice? What could you seek? What is that alternative? What is a Seeker seeking? 

You can make the choice to say I don't believe the rhetoric... I don't believe the media... Something's just a little weird with what somebody's telling me. What is it? What are the things that you can seek once you make a choice?

HANS:
Anything... anything. Don't we love the story, folks, of people who are born in the life in abject poverty and they struggle and they work and they try to get an education but they always know they're better and bigger than what the  circumstances tells them they are... whatever circumstance they're in. They work hard. And one day, magic appears.. magic. 

And, I've said this for years, if you go and read any biography or auto-biography of any person you think is well known, famous, whatever... somewhere in the book, these words will appear, maybe not in this order, but they will say: And I always knew it.

That's called: Setting your intention and being a Seeker. They always knew. There was no room for doubt. None. Anything that came into their life that was a problem... Oh, this was something that the resolve is already on the way... the fixing this is already on the way. So they never looked at being a Seeker. They never looked at the blocks as a block... they looked at them as a possibility.

ALFRED:
And that's what we call "Truth." What is true for you? What is true for your life path? What is true for you as an individual? What are the experiences that you wish to have in this incarnation? Those things, you'll “feel” inside. They are not things you can think, memorize, understand. No. That's the other side. What we're trying about is the side of you that can feel what is right for you, as an individual.

HANS:
Yes. So what can happen to you if you're a Seeker? Anything you want. There is almost no dharmic roadblock or lesson that is ever designed, or karmic debt, that is ever designed to keep you off your path and keep you from your dreams. That's all humanness... simply humanness. 

So when you become a Seeker, you say: I believe. I believe. I don't know how, I don't know where, I don't know when, but I believe. And when you do that, when you set that intention, when you become that personal Seeker, the truest and the greatness of your purpose is drawn to you - always. 

Alfred is now getting his book underway. That's going to be published. He's got his wonderful "Business in Spirituality” Seminars going. It all started when I said: What do you want to do? He said: I want to teach. That's what you're doing.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
You went from working in a bank to being a Spiritual Teacher.

ALFRED:
Yes, and a lot of that... what we're going to be talking about, starts with not just a "choice," but then the belief is that there is something more than what is obvious. What is obvious is in the human realm. What is obvious is what your parents tell you, what the TV tells you, what your education tells you. That's "obvious."

HANS:
I call that "program limitation."

ALFRED:
Yes, that's humanness. 

HANS:
That's humanness.

ALFRED:
What we're trying to tell you is to believe, to surrender, into something that is "not obvious". What is not obvious is what is for you, in your specific path. What is true for you, for your specific life. And that takes Faith, Trust and Belief and a lot of Surrendering. We have another topic on "Faith, Trust and Belief". But what we're talking about is, first to make the choice, and then to surrender into that.

What we're talking about in "choices"... For example, is you can try to follow what everything tells you in Western education, Western media, which is you get what you negotiate, you get what you control. We're saying: You have a choice to surrender, to let go, to work with the Universe, to let your life flow in the direction it's supposed to flow. 

That is a choice. You don't have to control everything. You don't have to manipulate. You can simply “Be.” See, that is one of the choices that we're talking about here is to go in the opposite direction in order to find your unique path and that has to do with surrendering into things you may not understand.

HANS:
Thank you... appreciate that. So yes, you too can be a Seeker. You have to set your intention. And above all things, my friends, you must "believe" that when you set your intention, Spirit is standing beside you and you say: I would like the experience of this... I would like the experience of that. A Seeker is someone who says: This life I'm living does not represent who I am. I'm living in an imaginary world that I created... that my parents created... the schools created. 

I remember one thing that Alfred used to talk about a long time ago, is all the education he had to get just to be the Banker. It was a huge amount of education. He had double majors... in what was it?

ALFRED:
Double major in Economics and Business and a Graduate Degree in Business. 

HANS:
And he's teaching Spirituality.

ALFRED:
Yes.

HANS:
And if you think that was easy for him to get to... You see this white hair here? (Hans laughing) It's not been easy friends. But one thing he had was intention to Seek. And that's what I want all of you to have is the Intention to Seek. To seek a greater you, a greater experience, a happier you, a joyful experience. Anything you want, you can create. All the great teachers have always known this. We're only limited by our own imagination - period. That's all. That's it. We're limited by our own imagination. Yes, you can; and Yes, I am.

And that will conclude the lesson for today.
