Dr. Peebles through Summer Bacon
Now, you came to this school called planet earth to discover and dissolve the illusions of separation within self and between life. You came to this school called planet earth! It’s a school, my dear friends, and when you came to this school and you incarnated and you chose to be born, and you were carried in the belly of your mommy, you chose that mother (as much as you might not like her; as much as do you love her), you chose this person to be your mother. That was your choice. You came in excited, every one of you. “All right, yes, I’ll come to the earth, I can’t wait, let’s see what happens. I have all these ideas of what I can become, I have all these ideas and all these plans, all these dreams and possibilities in my consciousness that I want to bring in.” But you get to the earth and you land upon the earth and suddenly things aren’t exactly going the way you thought they were going to go and you get frustrated. Well, what happens is you come to the earth knowing you are perfect, and then you step into the body, and you are a little child, and you walk around and you start doing things, and mommy says, “Don’t do that, you’ll get yourself dirty.” Well, right there suddenly you’ve taken the fall. Now you believe if you’re going to get dirty it’s a bad thing. And the next thing you know you’re hugging your daddy too hard, “Stop it, you’re hurting my neck, why are you doing that, why are you hugging me?” So now you wonder about whether you should be giving hugs.
