Participants: Mary ( Michael) and Terri (Uliva)
ELIAS: Good afternoon!
TERRI: Good afternoon. (Elias chuckles) I feel like I have a million things to ask you all at once today.
ELIAS: Ah, very well! We shall be busy.
TERRI: Yes, we shall. The first thing I wanted to talk to you about is our friend Petey. He called me the other night, and he was telling me about some disagreements he’s had lately with thinking his mother was mad at him and he didn’t know why, and his brother was seeing things – his brother that has cancer and he was trying to quit smoking – and then his best friend turned up with throat cancer, so he did end up quitting smoking, and his brother and Bill were taking two completely different paths regarding their diseases. His brother is going to chemo after chemo, and Bill’s going in the direction of all holistic treatments. He told Petey the other day that somebody working on him said that they saw two angels at his feet and his cancer has been eradicated.
So one of the first things he asked me was, “Wouldn’t you want to know if that were true or not?” because his throat is still swollen and everything. And I’ve been focusing a lot, a lot, a lot on there’s only projection and reflection, so I thought, “Okay, what could he be reflecting to himself?” And I thought that he quit smoking three months ago and that he wants to know whether he has cancer or whether this is going to be different to him. So I suggested, “Why don’t you go and have some x-rays taken? You don’t have any symptoms, so if x-rays are tumor free so you can relax, and if they find something, chances are it would be at such an early stage you can treat it and you can relax. It seems like a win-win and you’ll have your proof that you are looking for.”
And then he was telling me about a fight that he got in at work and he’s still at Mark’s doing the same thing, and I said, “You know, it seems to me that you’re really facing your own mortality here, and you’re still fighting yourself about doing what you want to do and leaving and having your own freedom – you know, two equal forces pushing against each other here, and you’re getting more and more frustrated about it and you’re attracting bigger and bigger events to get your attention and you keep ignoring it.” I asked him if there was anything he wanted me to ask you today and he said, “Yeah, ask Elias if all that’s true?” (Laughs) So basically he wants to know if what I’m saying is in the right direction?
TERRI: And me asking for him…
ELIAS: The telephone ringing.
TERRI: That’s the telephone ringing. And do you have anything, any advice or an exercise or something that could help him? He keeps admitting that he’s so stubborn it’s like, well, if you admit that and you’re aware of that and you’re still choosing to ignore that…
ELIAS: It is an excuse.
TERRI: Right! So you must still be getting something out of this, or you wouldn’t keep doing it. So what is he getting out of it?
ELIAS: That is an interesting question. In your terms, “What is he getting out of it?” An avenue for release. There is considerable frustration, irritation, annoyance, that is churning within himself in relation to what he sees and what he will not allow himself to engage, and as I have expressed many times, “Energy will be expressed.” In this, what his payoff is, is a release of energy. He can be angry, he can be irritated, he can express anxiety, agitation, he can express himself in all of those manners, in AGGRESSIVE manners, and release energy. There are most definitely more efficient and more effective manners to do that – more beneficial manners to do that – but this is what is familiar to him, and therefore he continues to do it. And…
TERRI: So what would you recommend to help him start moving forward?
ELIAS: Another interesting question. What would I recommend that I have not already recommended!?
TERRI: (Laughs) Or in a different way that may make a different impression this time. I think he’s getting closer to doing it, I don’t know! It just makes me want to go in there and quit for him. (Laughs) Tell him not to go back!
ELIAS: Perhaps expressing to him, “Was the idea and the prospect of creating cancer comfortable?” No; it was not. Obviously it was uncomfortable enough that it motivated him to change a particular habit that he had been expressing for many years. What he is doing now in relation to the job, in relation to the other individuals and the anger and aggression, frustration, anxiety, these are all also habits. They are essentially the same as smoking. That was a habit that he chose to engage that offered him payoff, but eventually he approached a point in which he began to question that habit and whether it was actually benefiting him or whether he believed it was detrimental to him. And he presented considerable imagery to himself to suggest that he believes it is detrimental, and in a severe enough manner, that it motivated him to stop that habit.
He has presented himself ample imagery that what he is doing in this other situation, which is also a habit that is, for him, equally as detrimental, if not more so. For with the smoking he actually did not create a physical manifestation; he chose to interrupt that habit before he actually generated physical damage to himself. And in that, he chose to do so in a time framework in which his body consciousness will regenerate and there will likely to be no ill effects.
I would express that the other habit of placing himself in situations that he is very uncomfortable and that he is discounted – which is a reflection of how he is discounting himself and devaluing himself, and therefore he also reflects that – this is another habit, but this is a more damaging habit, for it IS creating damaging effects. In that, I would express, how much damage to his self-worth and value is enough? How much aggression and frustration and anger must be expressed to release energy, to be enough, to choose to change that habit? How uncomfortable must he be before he chooses to change that habit?
I have expressed many different suggestions in relation to what he can do in a more beneficial and a more efficient direction that would be empowering and would be more comfortable, but that appears to be not as important; therefore, in relation to your request, changing what I present to him: Very well, rather than focusing upon what may be a benefit or what may be more comfortable, perhaps it is a matter of focusing upon what is, now, and how uncomfortable it is and how much longer he chooses to express that discomfort.
And let me express to you in this, this type of habit can be equally as physically damaging as what he believes smoking would be. For the more you express opposition with yourself, the more anxiety and aggression and anger – which is the expression of perceiving you have no choices – the more you DENY yourself, the more the body consciousness responds to that, and eventually it will respond to that in a manner of creating a physical dysfunction or disease. And this is very common; individuals do it quite frequently.
TERRI: Okay. So I’ll give him that information and see if he chooses to [inaudible] with that. I hope he does, I’ve been explaining all that for years. (Laughs)
ELIAS: I would express to you that you may express to him from myself, when he is ready to stop this habit and when he is ready to stop creating more and more and more discomfort for himself, then he can engage myself and I will move in a direction of suggesting viable positive directions that would be beneficial to him. But at this point, it is a matter of stopping the present habit first.
TERRI: Okay. Great. I hope he takes this to heart.
So, on to me! (Laughs)
ELIAS: Very well.
TERRI: I have been focusing a lot – a lot – on projection, there’s only projection and reflection and “now feelings” and “then feelings”…
ELIAS: And choice or reaction.
TERRI: And choice or reaction, and I believe I’m making progress in that area. I didn’t think it was possible for you to break down creating your reality any simpler, but you seem to have done that. (Both laugh) So one of the things I wanted to ask in regard to attachment – you say independence is an attachment – is control an attachment? In that I feel it’s better to be in control than not?
ELIAS: No. Control is not an attachment.
TERRI: It’s a belief?
ELIAS: Control is born of association.
TERRI: How about competitiveness? Is than an attachment?
TERRI: Okay. So….
ELIAS: I would express to you that you may notice, if you pay attention, even small ones can generate aspects of control.
ELIAS: Therefore it is not an attachment.
TERRI: Okay. So if small ones can generate it, it’s not an attachment?
TERRI: So an attachment is different than a belief?
ELIAS: It is the manifestation of beliefs.
TERRI: Okay. So attachments are the manifestations…
ELIAS: A belief is a subject; an attachment is the action of that subject. Not all beliefs create attachment, but some beliefs that you use as guidelines, so to speak, for how to direct yourself, those are what develop into attachments.
TERRI: Okay. So what we’re moving toward is becoming aware of these attachments?
TERRI: And as we become aware of these attachments they will naturally fall away?
Attachments require that you engage an actual choice with them; you choose to express their influences or you do not choose to. It is not that being aware of them will automatically deflate them or cause them to fall away – no. They are very ingrained in your objective awareness, for they are expressed to you throughout the entirety of your life. Even as small ones – although you do not develop them or assume them yet, you are aware of them even as small ones – you nearly do not necessarily express them. And some you are not as aware of; some you are more aware of than others.
You do not actually assume them and begin to develop them until an age subsequent to adolescence. But once you begin assuming those attachments you begin to develop them, and you develop them very quickly and very strongly. And in that, it is a matter of becoming aware of what they are, and in being aware of what they are, noticing your automatic responses in relation to them, and from that, choosing whether you actually want to be responding, whether you actually WANT to be employing that attachment in a particular fashion or not. And that does require an objective, active choice, for attachments are so pervasive that if you are not aware of them and intentionally choosing not to express them, you will automatically move back into expressing them.
TERRI: So are they akin to truths?
ELIAS: (Pause) In the sense of your core truths?
ELIAS: They CAN be. They are not always, and not all of them are, but in some expressions and in some capacities, yes they can be. They can be that strong.
TERRI: Okay. So, I think I started identifying them more and really recognizing the energy that I’m projecting and seeing the reflections.
ELIAS: How so?
TERRI: Well, one example, while we were away I kept getting into disagreements with Sharon, and one was a fight over a comment I made that I agreed with the presenter that we should focus on where we’re going and not be focused on what others around us were doing, and she said, “Well, not on my watch. While I’m here we will focus on what MHS is doing and you will take that into account.” So I thought, “Okay, what I am reflecting is control, that power in that position that she has the control and that being in a higher position dictates control, and I feel as marketing director that should hold some type of power or control but I’m not reflecting that. I’m not reflecting that what I bring up, what I suggest is really being taken as, you know, I have that position so what I say should matter. So…
ELIAS: Which is understandable.
TERRI: But you’re saying control is an attachment, so there must be an attachment in there somewhere. (Laughs)
ELIAS: (Pause) To an extent, but let me also express to you that not every situation may involve an attachment.
TERRI: If there was a reflection and I become aware of it, it seemed to defuse quicker.
ELIAS: Now, let me express to you, not every situation will involve attachments. That would be a difference between beliefs and attachments, for as I expressed, the attachments are, in a manner of speaking, the manifestation of beliefs or the guidelines of combinations of beliefs. Now, in some situations you may be presenting to yourself reflections that are not necessarily involving attachments, and as you expressed, what you noticed in this situation was the reflection – which, I would be acknowledging of you and expressing congratulations, for that is significant, to be paying attention – “What am I reflecting?” and actually identifying that, which prevents you from reacting and allows you to generate choices in relation TO that reflection. And in that, you assessed that control was a factor in that reflection, which I would agree with you.
Now; I would express that there is a slight aspect of an attachment that is involved in this situation, but it is not ultimately the strongest aspect of what was occurring, and the attachment that was involved is responsibility.
Now; I also am acknowledging of you in your evaluation in relation to position and expression and control. Now, in this, there is more of an influence of association than attachment, for the association suggests that position, as you expressed, incorporates power. Power equates to control, in your perception. In this, each individual expresses a position, but you also are participating in a dynamic in which there is established somewhat of a hierarchy. You incorporate a position, but this other individual also incorporates a position which may be slightly higher than yours.
TERRI: Right. And it seems almost…
ELIAS: In your perception.
ELIAS: In the association of positions, which you and I have discussed previously and I have expressed to you, her position is NOT higher than yours, you are equal. But that is a strong association, the hierarchy of positions, and therefore, what you reflect to yourself is not only control but also position, and you are reflecting that what you are suggesting or what you are presenting is not necessarily accepted or implemented, for your position is not equal to hers yet in your perception. That association continues to influence in placing her just slightly higher.
TERRI: Right. So then I moved my attention to the greater possibilities of what we could accomplish, and she did move into agreement with me in bringing Mike out to see us.
TERRI: That was a pretty quick turnaround. (Laughs)
ELIAS: I would be very acknowledging of you. Now, –
TERRI: So he seems to be to focusing on the greater possibilities outside of her, or best friends, thinking bigger?
TERRI: So I’m focusing on thinking bigger and what I want.
ELIAS: Very well.
TERRI: And I really, really, really liked being out in San Diego. (Both laugh) So, what I want is to create more freedom to create on my terms where I want, what I want and create a bigger financial reward for that, and in turn being able to help Greyhound rescues of my choosing in a bigger way than I am right now. So how do I get there? (Laughs)
ELIAS: Therefore your desire remains the same.
TERRI: Right. (Laughs)
ELIAS: And you are already moving in that direction.
TERRI: Okay. Good. That’s good. (Laughs)
ELIAS: Participating in the trip and recognizing what you did in your conflict, and being successful in inviting this individual to you: that is a step. You are already engaging thinking bigger and doing bigger. It is a matter of acknowledging yourself in each step that they are a part of this process. That is a part of this process. That is a step, that is an actual action that you engage that is thinking bigger, doing bigger.
TERRI: Okay. So I’m on the right path?
ELIAS: Yes, I would agree.
And let me also offer to you as an aside, in relation to control: Control is expressed in relation to threat. This is an automatic reaction that individuals express in relation to threats. They may not even be aware of what the threat is, but when an individual feels they need to control a situation, or they need to be in control, when it is not a natural flow – for there are some expressions of control that are natural, that are not issues and that are not related to threats, there are some actions that you all engage that would be expressions of control in some capacity, but they are more related to directing yourself and expressing yourself. In that capacity, that form of control, so to speak, can be beneficial, and it can even be empowering.
When an individual feels that they NEED to be in control, that is an entirely different dynamic. When an individual is expressing control forcefully, such as in the situation that you witnessed, that is born out of a threat. The individual –
TERRI: A threat to me? Or I’m reflecting that I feel threatened? (Laughs)
ELIAS: You are not necessarily reflecting that you feel threatened. Remember: Reflections are not mirrors.
ELIAS: That means that what you are reflecting is not to say that you may be doing that very same expression yourself. It may be a presentment to you to pay attention, to offer yourself more information, which IS what this was. This was a reflection, and you were correct in your assessment of it in relation to control, and I am acknowledging of you that you recognized that you express a tendency at times to generate that also. Not that you were doing that at that point; you were not. What you were doing was reflecting that to yourself in relation to the association of hierarchy, to remind yourself, “This association is still being expressed, is still influencing in some capacities, that I still am expressing that influence that some individuals hold a higher position than myself.” That was one aspect of the reflection.
Another aspect of the reflection is the ability to observe what that expression looks like and how opposing it is – not that you were DOING it but that it offered you the opportunity to view it, to witness it and observe it and observe what it creates, what the automatic responses are to it. In this also, it offered you the opportunity to reflect to yourself the imagery, or the image, of what motivates that type of control, which is threat. Not that she necessarily was threatened by you; she was threatened by an idea: the idea of not being the entire decision maker, the idea of not being ultimately important. And therefore, that influences this expression, that is the threat and that influences this expression of the need to project control.
TERRI: So, going back to what you said before, I’m not going to change that about her,….
TERRI: …but by thinking bigger I can move into a work situation that’s more comfortable for me.
ELIAS: Yes. And in that process you can also be generating an example and projecting an energy to be encouraging of her, and every other individual around you, to not be so threatened.
TERRI: Right, and move more into empowerment.
ELIAS: Correct, correct, rather than control.
TERRI: Right. Because my idea is that anybody should be able to step up and fully take over if something happened.
TERRI: So just holding my attention in that direction, and holding my attention in…
ELIAS: And not allowing yourself to become bothered and consumed with her issues.
TERRI: Right, and the daily structure.
TERRI: And move more outside of that.
TERRI: Because when I move back in I find myself getting sucked back into it, as like I don’t need to get sucked back into this; I can still move in my own direction and not worry about what I accomplish within a day. It’s not about what I accomplish within a day, each day.
TERRI: Thank you. (Laughs)
ELIAS: That is significant.
TERRI: Yeah, that was really good. (Laughs)
ELIAS: I agree.
TERRI: Because it doesn’t matter what’s accomplished within each day; there’s always gonna be more to accomplish, things that aren’t accomplished, and that’s not really what matters in the overall picture.
ELIAS: I agree.
TERRI: So why is my roof leaking again? (Both laugh)
TERRI: In my living room – again? What is that…? It happened the day we left. Was it a release of energy because of the impending trip?
ELIAS: What is your assessment?
TERRI: That was the best one I came up with. (Laughs) I seem to generate roofs leaking a lot. (Elias laughs heartily) This is very expensive. (Both laugh)
ELIAS: Now; allow yourself a moment and think. This is a consistent imagery.
ELIAS: Therefore, what does this imagery mean to you?
TERRI: A lack of control?
ELIAS: Leaking… It is leaking, it is damaging and it is annoying.
ELIAS: Therefore, what does this mean to you? (Pause) Think of energy leaking, –
TERRI: Well, it’s the release of pent-up energy, that if you don’t release energy, it can be damaging?
ELIAS: That could be an interpretation, although in the imagery it is not necessarily pent-up water.
TERRI: Well, it was in the sense that it was frozen, it was pent up behind a frozen barrier.
ELIAS: I am understanding, but as soon as it becomes liquid it is flowing.
TERRI: Free flowing.
ELIAS: Correct, therefore creating the leak.
ELIAS: Therefore, it is not necessarily blocked energy.
TERRI: Mischanneled, misdirected? Misdirected energy? Was it like a warning that on that trip I had a chance to misdirect energy?
ELIAS: And to be aware, yes. Now in this moment do you see the correlation slightly clearer?
TERRI: Oh yeah! Yeah. Which I did catch and, you know, would rather do it without damaging my living room! (Both laugh) I need to find ways to get these messages across without costing me money! (Both laugh)
Addie, my one greyhound that just seems so fearful, or… If I’m laying in bed and she thinks that I’m going to sit up and leave the bed she jumps up and bolts out of the room. And if I go to trim the other dogs’ nails she runs away, and then she’ll come stand back in the doorway and look at me. And I worked on moving my attention from, you know, trying to work with moving my attention away from making her feel threatened, but am I creating imagery that…? What is she trying to show me, that I feel threatened?
ELIAS: No. Now remember, as I have expressed to you previously, yes you are reflecting, but reflections are not mirrors. And remember that creatures incorporate their own choices, their own personalities, and therefore at times their own issues.
Now; in this, what you are reflecting is how quickly and how easily your energy is projected and affects outside of you. That is what you are reflecting. What she is doing is expressing considerable apprehension, and to an extent a lack of trust, which is also somewhat understandable. In this, in relation to this particular creature in her personality, I would express that this is an opportunity for you to genuinely be very aware of your energy and what you are projecting and the opportunity to manipulate that in an intentional manner, to INTENTIONALLY be projecting specific expressions of energy in relation to her, to specifically focus yourself with her and project calming and quiet and soothing energy to her intentionally.
This may be a very effective exercise for you, for it allows you to practice with the first aspect of the formula in creating your reality, which is projection. I would express that for the most part, even knowing the formula, most individuals will be the most aware of the second aspect of the formula, the reflection.
TERRI: Right. Because you see that and you kind of have to backtrack.
ELIAS: Correct. Correct. This offers you an opportunity to practice with the first aspect of the formula intentionally, concentrating not upon the reflection but upon the projection, what type of energy you are projecting, and creating a definitive intention of what type of energy you want to project to her, and then allowing yourself – in the practicing and in the experimenting – to gauge how effective and how successful you are by the reflection, therefore using the reflection in a different capacity.
TERRI: That’s cool. So basically she’s helping me get to where I want to go. (Laughs)
ELIAS: I would agree!
TERRI: And Hunter seems to be being more trustful and more… I guess more trusting of me and more affectionate, more affectionate towards me too. And…
TERRI: Thank you. But now Percy (laughs), over at the other house, is he reflecting that Joyce is growing more to want to keep everybody away? I’m not sure what’s going on there with… Because I don’t want to go over there anymore because he just goes right after the dogs, and I don’t feel comfortable. So the less I’ve been going over there and the more I call her, the happier she sounds on the phone. (Laughs) So, it doesn’t seem to be creating a negative situation, but I also see the considerable stress that the dog is under when people or other animals come to the house. So, what’s going on there?
ELIAS: (Pause) Think of the individual.
TERRI: Right. She moves more towards being solitary.
ELIAS: Think of the individual.
TERRI: She leans more towards pushing people away.
ELIAS: What would you express in relation to identifying what you term to be individual statistics with this individual?
TERRI: As far she pushes more people…
ELIAS: No. What would you express are her “cosmic statistics”?
TERRI: Oh, what… Well, she’s intermediate. (Slight pause) More than that? (Laughs)
ELIAS: That is enough.
TERRI: Right. That she deals more inside than she does… ?
ELIAS: This is what I am expressing. Think of the individual, what they naturally express, and the creature will reflect that. And in that, an individual that is intermediate or soft, the creatures around them are dependent upon the individual more likely to express at times less of a willingness to be interactive, more so with an intermediate than the soft.
TERRI: Which is interesting, because Percy moves in the direction of pushing people away, and Sassy moves in a direction of pulling away from people. (Laughs)
ELIAS: Which would both be –
TERRI: Right. The same…
TERRI: That’s interesting.
ELIAS: They are different sides of the same coin, yes.
TERRI: Huh. And that’s really how I stopped interacting with Petey as much too, is I didn’t want to bring my dog around his dogs. Huh… Interesting.
TERRI: But she seems happier, so it doesn’t seem… Because, you know, from my perspective, being common, I would say that that that would make me mad because I would see it as them not liking me as much, but for her it’s actually more comfortable, for her.
ELIAS: Yes. And it is not interpreted as –
TERRI: Right. Well, because when I talk her on the phone, she’s like happier. It’s bizarre.
ELIAS: For that allows the other individual to express themself more freely without readjusting themself. Let me express to you: This is an expression that occurs very frequently with intermediate individuals, that they are more likely to attempt to adjust themselves to other individuals, which requires considerable energy and work.
TERRI: Like the summer we spent going out to different stores, …
ELIAS: Yes, for –
TERRI: They seemed to enjoy it, though.
ELIAS: And they do at times, not always. This is the reason that in many situations intermediate individuals incorporate jobs that are in considerable positions, or that seem to be important or that seem to be very interactive, which surfacely would seemly inconsistent with them, but for the reason that they do automatically in some capacities adjust themselves to other individuals. They’re pliable, and therefore –
TERRI: She doesn’t seem very pliable at all. (Laughs)
ELIAS: It is dependent in degrees…
TERRI: She seems much happier now that she’s not working at all.
ELIAS: Yes! But what I am expressing is that they may not necessarily be, in your terms, “happy” in those positions, but they function well.
TERRI: I can’t see her functioning well, but she seems happy now. (Chuckles)
ELIAS: They are more content and more comfortable when it is not necessary for them to do that.
TERRI: When they’re doing nothing, evidently. I mean, she seems happy just sitting in her house all day! (Laughs)
ELIAS: What you perceive to be doing nothing, they do not perceive to be doing nothing.
TERRI: Which I think is fascinating. (Elias laughs heartily) It just fascinates me how –
ELIAS: It is a difference.
TERRI: – much lighter and happier she is now doing nothing, sitting in her house all day.
ELIAS: And not expressing expectations of herself, and not having expectations expressed TO her. That is much more comfortable.
TERRI: I’ve even moved away from asking her to come over and let the dogs out, because it seems to frustrate her having that expectation, and I was getting frustrated having to have that expectation. So Google seems happy in his diaper now. (Laughs)
TERRI: And why…? He can obviously hold it; why does he choose not to hold it? Just to express that freedom of that’s what he likes to do? (Laughs)
ELIAS: It distinguishes him.
TERRI: Yeah it does! Because I know he’s the only one that’ll go with me there. (Laughs)
ELIAS: It distinguishes him from the others.
TERRI: Yes, it does. (Laughs) But then he moved into my bedroom, he obviously got the message that wasn’t a good idea. (Both laugh) So I guess I’m just really feeling a sense of excitement of thinking bigger and…
[The timer for the end of the session rings]
TERRI: …and possibilities, so… at times I’ll mess up, but... I’m feeling that it’s a strong probability that I can create moving in the direction of what I express and what I desire.
ELIAS: That I very much agree.
TERRI: So I should just focus on different possibilities and imagination and keep repeating it; I’ve already established it, right?
ELIAS: Yes, but continue to incorporate action.
ELIAS: And pay attention to opportunities and what you present to yourself with, and in that, to not allow other individuals to discourage you.
TERRI: Right. Just keep the window and just keep moving and looking to bigger possibilities in what can be and what…
ELIAS: Think of yourself as a locomotive, my friend. You are immense, you are powerful, you are strong, and you are generating a tremendous steam in your engines and will not be dissuaded. And regardless of what approaches and is thrown into your path, you are a locomotive. You will move right through it.
TERRI: I’m definitely doing a good job of that. (Both laugh) I think that’s where the excitement comes from because I can see myself moving stronger and more forward and more in the direction of where I want to go at a faster pace.
ELIAS: I would agree. And I would express to you, in this present day your physical energy that is being expressed, therefore also the physical energy that you are expressing in relation to the appearance of your eyes, is considerably different.
TERRI: Oh, nice! You know I like that. (Chuckles) I do like that.
ELIAS: Therefore, I would be greatly acknowledging your accomplishments.
TERRI: Thank you.
TERRI: Thank you, and Happy Valentine’s Day. (Laughs)
ELIAS: To you also! (Both laugh)
TERRI: I look forward to our meeting next month.
ELIAS: Very well, and so shall I. I offer you great encouragement, tremendous acknowledgement in your accomplishments and your success, and I shall be with you encouraging you. Until our next meeting, my dear one, in tremendous affection as always, au revoir.
TERRI: Au revoir.
(Elias departs after 1 hour 2 minutes)
