Darryl Anka (Bashar)
July 14, 2014

Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview
Welcome to Buddha at the Gas Pump.
My name is Rick Archer and my guest today
is Darryl Anka, who channels an entity known

as Bashar.
Well first of all, welcome Darryl thanks for
doing this.

Thank you Rick, my pleasure.
Thank you for having me, I really appreciate
it.

Yeah well this is gonna be fun.
Those who have been watching this show for
some time know that I have a fairly eclectic

understanding, or orientation, towards spirituality.
I feel that the universe is far more vast
and diverse, and complex and mysterious than

most of us realize, and that it's all pervaded
by Divine intelligence, and that Divine intelligence

has a lot of tricks up it's sleeve [chuckles].
You know, a lot of different ways of enabling
people to more fully realize that deep reality.

So I don't rule out much of anything as
a valid spiritual path, and I think that people

choose the paths which they feel the most
resonance or affinity, and that's cool with

me.
So I feel that the purpose of this show is
to expose people to a variety of teachers

and teachings and paths and spiritual orientations,
and let them use their own judgment as to

what works for them.
So I say that as, you know, a little bit of
an introduction because I know that some of

my audience will think, “Oh, channeling,
aliens and all this stuff.

What does this have to do?– I'm into Vedanta.”
And so I'd say, great.
Enjoy Vedanta but Vedanta isn't the only
game in town.

And if you happen to resonate with what we're
going to talk about today, and I'm sure

many of you will, then that's good.
And if you don't, then I'll do another
one next week on a different topic [both laughing].

So Darryl, one thing that when I was listening
to your various recordings of Bashar, there's

one in which he distinguished between, I believe
it was, skepticism and cynicism.

Yes.
Yeah, I like that one, and correct me if I'm
wrong, but he defined skepticism as a sort

of a healthy, open-minded inquisitiveness,
which you're free to ask questions that

may arise, but you keep an open mind and you're
willing to revise your perspective if new

evidence is presented.
Whereas cynicism is more like a rigidity,
or a closed-mindedness, where you feel like

you've got it all figured out, and you reject
evidence that clashes with your world-view

as being kooky or erroneous, or fallacious,
or whatever.

Yes.
So by that definition, I would consider myself
a skeptic - and it's sort of a complimentary

term - and I'll probably be asking some
questions that may seem skeptical, but they're

asked in all respect and appreciation for
what you do.

Yeah, that's fine.
Yeah, they may be questions that people we're
talking to have in their own minds, so we

want to cover them.
So with that introduction, I think this interview
will probably breakdown into two main sections,

and there may be sort of, inter-mixture between
the two sections, but one will be about your

life.
You know, who you are and how you got into
this, and how that whole thing unfolded.

And the other is about Bashar himself and
the knowledge that he is bringing forth.

And so those two are intertwined but somewhat
separate.

So let's start with the first one first.
As I understand it, you've been doing this
for decades now.

30 years.
30 years, yeah, long time.
I know you've covered this in other interviews;
there was a great interview on something called

'Waking Universe'.
I really appreciated that one, that guy did
a good job.

But since the people listening to this will
probably not have listened to that, let's

cover some of the same ground, and maybe I'll
ask some different questions.

Sure, absolutely.
So let's start by just, how did this whole
thing start?

Well, for me it began back in 1973.
I actually had two, very close, broad daylight
UFO sightings here in Los Angeles.

First time, about 150 feet away, the second
time, only about 70 feet away.

Both times it was an equilateral, black, triangular
ship - about 20 or 30 feet on each side.

Now fortunately I had witnesses with me both
times, so I knew I had some collaboration

and some corroboration in that experience
– in both those experiences.

But it was those UFO experiences that started
me investigating what's this all about?

Because now I'd seen something like that,
I knew that the world wasn't exactly as

I had been taught it was, and I needed to
find out what was going on.

So in that investigation in the following
years – of course back then there weren't

a lot of books on a lot of metaphysical subjects.
So you kind of walk into a bookstore looking
for UFO books and books on psychic functioning

or channeling, or things like that, would
all be on the same one shelf in the back of

the store.
So I just kind of went down the line and picked
up on these different books, and tried to

ascertain if one had anything to do with another.
I became familiar with channeling through
the Seth material from Jane Roberts, and I

found it to be…
Hang on just one second before you proceed.
About the UFOs, Los Angeles is a populous
place.

I mean, was this broad daylight, did you say?
Both of them were in broad daylight, yes.
I was on the freeway the first time.
We were actually looking around to see if
anyone else in any of the other cars, while

we were driving, were looking up at this thing.
Everyone in my car saw it, but I couldn't
tell if anyone else was looking up and seeing

this thing.
It was hovering just above and outside of
this hotel, which was maybe about 12 stories

tall.
And it didn't make the news or anything?
Well not that I was aware of, although I have
subsequently seen more and more reports of

triangular UFOs since that time.
But I think it took about 2 or 3 years after
my sighting before I actually heard of another

report of a triangular UFO.
They seem to be pretty rare back then; now
they seem to be more and more common.

Ok.
Did you have any spiritual or esoteric tendencies
before this, or was that the catalyst that

got you going?
Not really.
That was the really the catalyst.
I mean my family had raised me Catholic.
You know,
I didn't really resonate with the idea of

religion in that sense; it was just kind of
surreal to me.

And so no, I didn't really have any leanings
in any particular spiritual direction, but

this really ignited my curiosity about what
was going on.

Ok, good.
And so later on we'll talk a lot more about
the UFO phenomenon and all that.

Sure.
But you were about to talk about your exploration
and you mentioned you stumbled upon the Seth

material – Jane Roberts.
Yes, yes, and so that gave me some degree
of introduction to the idea of channeling.

And 10 years after the UFO sighting, I was
actually introduced to a channel who was holding

seminars at the time.
And I went to listen to the information coming
through that channel, and after a few months

I thought, it's interesting information,
it seems to be constructive, it seems to have

the capacity to help people make positive
and constructive choices in their lives.

Now eventually, that entity offered to teach
a channeling class.

I went into the class, not because I thought
I was going to become a channel; I was just

trying to further my research, 'cause I
didn't understand how channeling could be

taught to someone.
My understanding at that point, was that it
was just sort of something that happened to

you out of the blue.
But in the class, which was basically a series
of guided meditations to put you in touch

with whatever you wanted to get in touch with,
be it more creativity, your own higher mind,

or you know, whatever, I received what I can
only describe as a telepathic hit.

And in that one instant, an actual memory
came back of having made an agreement of doing

this channeling with Bashar, in this life.
In that instant I understood the UFO had been
shown to me on purpose, to get me to start

doing the research I was doing so I would
be ready by the time it came time to do the

channeling.
And the information in my head was, “Now
that you know you made this agreement, now

you know it's time to begin.
Is this something you would still like to
do?”

So this is an agreement that you made before
your birth?

Yes.
And so maybe that's why the other people
on the freeway didn't see the UFO, because

it was really meant for you.
And maybe they couldn't isolate out the
other people in your car [chuckling].

And I've heard this happen many times from
other people who've reported UFOs.

Sometimes they'll be standing around a group
of people, and only 1 or 2 people in the group

will actually be able to see the UFO.
So they may have a way of tuning the frequency
to a particular person and making themselves

essentially invisible to anyone who's not
on that wavelength.

Hmm.
Maybe the people in your car were somewhat
like-minded, you know, more open-minded, higher

consciousness kind of people, or something.
Somewhat, …Sure, well you know, like attracts
like.

They were my brother, my sister, a very, very
close friend of mine and her brother.

So in a sense we were all family.
Ok good.
So you got this hit.
You realized, “Ooh, I had made an agreement
to do this,” and continue.

Yeah, so for a little bit I thought, “Ok,
maybe I'm hallucinating here.

Maybe this is just my imagination.
It's a side effect of the meditation we're
doing, I don't know.”

But, the instant this actually happened in
my head, the entity coming through the teacher

stopped talking to the class and turned to
me and said, “There's an entity here for

you, now, if you're ready to begin.”
And at the same moment, I glanced over and
noticed that one of the other classmates was

actually, had also, somehow, picked up on
this peripherally, what was going on, and

was actually sketching an image of Bashar
that I had seen in my head.

So I already had 2 external validations that
this wasn't just going on inside me.

So for that reason I decided, “Ok, let's
explore this and see what it's all about.”

Ok.
So I went further in the class.
I did well enough that the teacher actually
asked me to co-channel the next class with

him.
And after that class, I was introduced to
a woman who was doing the first doctoral thesis

on the connection between psychology and channeling,
and I became one of her subjects and started

channeling at her house for her friends, while
she wrote notes to write her paper.

But the first week you know, it was like 5
friends, and then the second week was 20,

then the third week was 40.
And then we had to start doing it like twice
a week, and then renting auditoriums, and

then people would pass the recording around.
And before you know it, I was being invited
to different cities, different countries,

and it just took on a life of its own, and
here I am 30 years later.

Now I heard you say that you pretty much don't
remember, or while it's happening you're

not very cognizant of what's going on.
It's like you're off in some daydream
or something.

Yeah, I don't hear the words so much.
It's kind of like if you're really lost
in a daydream, and somebody walks in the room

and tries to get your attention.
And they have to call your name 3 times before
you actually hear them?

Happens all the time with my wife [laughing].
Exactly!
So it's like that.
It's like the conversation might as well
be in the house next door; it's so secondary

and so far away.
I'm paying attention to what I'm experiencing,
which is a lot of energy, a lot of imagery,

a lot of feeling, but I'm having my own
experience.

And whatever's going on with the translation
in my brain, for the person sitting in front

of me, really in a sense is none of my business,
so I just don't pay attention to it.

Hmm.
Seems that happens to different degrees with
different channels.

Like Edgar Cayce, as I understand it, was
really checked out, you k now?

Yes.
Some other channels, if their house was on
fire, you'd say, “Hey, your house is on

fire,” they'd get up and jump.
I don't know, maybe you're just wired
in different ways.

Yeah but I've also noticed in talked to
other channels, observing other channels,

I've noticed a progression, let's say
generationally.

I think we, those who choose to channel in
this way, are becoming more and more involved.

So it's like, I'm conscious, I know there's
something going on, and I could probably stop

it if I wanted to, but I just don't choose
to stop it.

But I'm more conscious and more aware than
I think like people like you're mentioning,

like Edgar Cayce or Jane Roberts.
Because I think it's important for the channel
to now know – at least to some degree – to

participate to some degree in what's happening,
because the information coming through is

also to be applied to yourself as well as
to the people that you're talking to.

So I think that you're going to see more
and more and more involvement in a conscious

way.
And as I become, let's say, more my own
version of Bashar, by just simply using the

information that he brings through, then I
can tap into my own higher mind, and I don't

have to go into the altered state at all;
to bring a lot of the information through,

myself, at this point.
So I think that's part of the idea, is that
we become more conscious, and still are capable

of tapping into that level of reality and
bringing through what we need.

Seems like some channelers, well you in particular,
you adopt a very different voice while you're

doing it.
I do a pretty good imitation of it actually
[laughing]

Here's the irony: I actually can't imitate
that voice.

I have trouble imitating it, but something
that absolutely happens naturally.

The breathing that you hear happens naturally,
by going into the altered state.

The voice changes and the energy changes happen
just as a side effect of going into that state

and allowing his personality to be translated
through me.

One of the things – I don't know, we can
touch on this later – but right now we're

actually in the middle of…my other life
is [that] I'm in the film business.

And right now we're making a documentary
about how I became a channel and who Bashar

is.
One of the things I'm most excited about
in this documentary is, I actually did a channeling

session with my head wired to an EEG machine.
So for the first time we're actually going
to be able to demonstrate physically, what

are the differences going on in the human
brain in the normal waking state, and in the

channeling state.
And without giving a lot of stuff away right
now, I will definitely say people are going

to see, for the first time, that there are
profound differences between the two states.

And for the first time, I
think we're going to be showing some scientific

evidence that this is truly, a real altered
state.

Not that anyone has to believe that Bashar
is real, but the channeling state is a true

altered state that we all actually have the
ability to get into, and that a lot of us

actually do get into from time to time, when
we're in that zone, or doing what we love

to do - where we're just doing it, we're
not thinking about it, we don't notice the

passage of time.
That's a channeling state and we all do
that.

So for the first time, I think, the documentary
is actually going to show the scientific side

of what's happing in the brain, in that
state.

So we're really excited about that.
Yeah, it's interesting.
And of course, a lot of that kind of research
has been done with meditation.

And they've identified that meditation evokes
a really distinct state that you can't be…it's

not just some minor modification of waking
state; it's a major state, as waking, sleeping,

dreaming are distinct from one another.
Yes, there's some similarities we discovered
to the meditation state, but there are also

some profound differences that are in addition
to the meditation state.

When you say we all channel from time to time,
perhaps without even knowing it, I'm wondering

if like…well like, you're channeling someone
whom you say is actually a future version

of yourself – Bashar is some future version
of yourself.

Yes, that's the way he presents himself.
And that's something we can get into later
in more detail also, is time is not so linear

as we think, and we'll get into that.
But then how about great geniuses like Mozart,
Beethoven, Einstein, do you think they were

channeling?
Yes.
They're in the channeling state.
It's really just expressing more of yourself,
more connectivity, more accessibility to knowledge

which exists throughout creation.
It's just knowing that everything exists
in the moment and tapping into that present

moment so strongly, that you can bring through
what you need to bring through without really

thinking about it.
Yeah, and there's the ancient idea of a
muse, you know, who inspires a great musician,

or artist, or something.
So do you think that these guys like Einstein
and so on, were just tapping into a deeper

aspect of their own creativity, or do you
think that some higher being or power said,

“Ok, it's time for humanity to know about
relativity and here's a good candidate.

This guy's smart enough, let's bring it
in through him”?

Well it could be both.
It could be both, and in a sense I feel it
has to be both.

Information permeates existence itself, and
whether another entity is involved in helping

deliver it, the person receiving it still
has to be on the right wavelength, still has

to be in the right state of being, or the
right vibrational frequency to receive it.

So I think it's gotta be a two-way street.
You gotta be able to tap in and be open to
receiving whatever it is that's available

to be received.
Whether someone is intentionally sending it
to you or not, or whether you're reaching

out and getting it, to me is just sort of
an issue of what mechanism is being used,

but you still have to be in the right state
to be able to translate it through.

Not only the right state, but you also have
to have the right education.

I mean, Mozart knew about music and so therefore
he could channel all these beautiful things.

Einstein knew about mathematics and so on.
Exactly, but one of the things that I've
noticed in my life early on, and one of the

things that people often say when they hear
the channeling is that, I have, I guess [chuckling],

a relatively large vocabulary, so that Bashar
can really translate a lot of what he's

saying into the necessary words.
And I noticed that in my life, growing up,
it was kind of one of the things that happened

for me automatically – my parents said that
I was reading magazines when I was a year

and a half old.
And English in school for me was never a problem.
I never understood why people could't understand
punctuation, grammar, vocabulary, you know

– things like that.
And so I think it was now, in hindsight, I
needed to program myself with a large enough

vocabulary so that very esoteric concepts
and ideas could translate through me into

language we would understand.
And so yeah, I think there's a lot of preparation
involved in these things, but a lot of times

it just happens in your life where you gravitate
to that thing, to give you the tools you need

to be able to function on that level, or translate
those concepts at some point in the future.

Yeah.
Yeah, and obviously you wouldn't be a very
useful channel in Brazil or speaking in Afrikaans

of something [chuckling].
That Bashar, if he wanted to talk to those
people, is probably going to have to go through

somebody who speaks Portuguese, or something.
Yeah, because that's a common misunderstanding
that people have about the idea of channeling.

Is, it's not that it's impossible for
an entity to sort of “override” the consciousness

of the channel's programming and sometimes
by actually capable of pulling another language

through, but it's really not what's easiest
for the channel's brain.

Because the channel has been programmed with
a particular language, and therefore yes,

you're right, in some sense it's easier
for the entity to actually go through a person

whose already programmed with a different
language.

And I've actually seen that happen with
Bashar.

At one point, many, many years ago, while
he was helping someone else learn how to channel;

he was acting as a mentor for them temporarily,
and allowing them to bring him through just

temporarily, until they could get a handle
on what channeling was and then channel their

own entity, he actually came through a woman
in Japan!

And therefore he was speaking through a female,
in Japanese, but it was still distinctly his

personality, his cadence, his style, his mannerisms.
So that was kind of a very odd thing for me
to experience, personally.

But yeah, most people have a misunderstanding
– because see he's not speaking anything

at all; he's just sending thoughts.
The thoughts are being translated by the biological
translator that we happen to be, and I'm

programmed with English, so that's what
you get.

Yeah, how about on the dark side?
I mean, were guys like Hitler, Pol Pod, Idi
Amin, and Charles Manson channeling something?

Well [chuckling], I suppose you could say
they were channeling their negative egos,

or their fear-based egos.
But the idea of channeling is something that,
by definition integrative, and connective

and expansive.
And things that are perceived more negatively
are segregative and disconnective, and reductive

and destructive.
So the idea is not so much to say that they
might have been, quote on quote, “channeling”

in the sense of an integrated, positive, expanding,
mechanical concept, but that perhaps they

were experiencing so much disconnection and
fearbased belief systems, that they were simply

bringing through more and more of their own
negative ego, without actually really being

able to express a connection to a higher source.
Well I guess maybe to rephrase the question,
are there negative forces in the universe

who would like to use men like them, as means
or channels to bring about negative impacts

on humanity?
It's possible.
You know, the universe is both positive and
negative, and I'm sure that there are entities

out there somewhere that don't necessarily
have everyone's best intention at heart,

but the thing I'm saying is, the person
has to already be kind of be gravitating towards

that wavelength to attract something like
that.

And the idea again is that, negative energy,
by definition, is segregative instead of connective,

so even though they might be aligning with
a negative entity, or a negative entity may

be aligning with someone on Earth that is
negatively oriented, there's not much connection,

because connection by definition is positive.
So to align with something like that is probably
very difficult.

And I think when people talk about things
like

“possession,” you know, and “is a negative
entity taking over,” to me it's really

simply more a matter of - in terms of speaking
of it as if it were physics – it's more

a matter of the person, based on their own
negative belief systems, is putting themselves

in a negative vibrational frequency.
And by doing so, they may be emulating another
negative frequency that might have a similar

negative intention.
But it's not like they can really be controlled
or possessed; it's simply that for whatever

reason, their belief system is getting them
to agree to function on that same low vibration

or wavelength.
And so they're emulating or mirroring what
another negative entity might also want to

do, but they're doing it themselves.
They're totally in control of that.
And if they change their mind about being
on that wavelength, they would sever that

experience in an instant, but their belief
system doesn't allow them to do so.

Okay.
So you're saying that a negative person
like Hitler, for instance, is not the polar

opposite of somebody who's channeling a
lot of positivity and wisdom and knowledge,

and so on; he's more mired in his egotism
and has just assumed some kind of role, and

has some kind of charismatic personality that
enables a lot of people to get all enthusiastic.

Yeah, it's a fear-based belief system.
It's a belief system based on limitation,
on lack, on fear – the negative definitions

that you're somehow disconnected from Source.
And if you feel like you're disconnected
from Source, then the ego sort of goes into

this negative space where it feels like it
has to now control everything, and manipulate

everything in order to feel the power that
it doesn't allow itself to feel, because

it believes it's disconnected.
People that feel connected to Source, that
know that they are connected – it's not

that anyone can actually be disconnected,
but you can have a belief that you're disconnected.

And if you believe you are, it's like being
abandoned, it's like being isolated.

Well, you're going to try to do everything
in your power to try and find that connection

again.
But if you don't understand that the power
is within you, you're gonna assume that

it's out there, and you're going to manipulate
your reality and manipulate other people,

and force yourself on them in order to construct
a reality that you feel is making you feel

powerful or comfortable.
But really, anytime anyone forces something
on anyone else, it's just a sign that they

don't feel their power at all and they're
trying to make up for it in some sort of artificial

way.
Great power, as Bashar said, really requires
the very gentlest touch.

So anytime anyone is forcing something on
anyone, what they're actually saying is

that they don't believe they have self-empowerment.
Just to belabor this point a little bit more,
from what I'm gathering, you would probably

say that what we see in terms of humanity
- all the dramas that have played out over

the hundreds and thousands of years – is
not necessarily a surface manifestation of

a tug-of-war between positive and negative
forces, sort of like Star Wars.

No.
The negative forces, at least in the examples
I've mentioned, are just the manifestations

of human ignorance and ego, but the positive
forces, you seem to be saying, could actually

be a channeling of some higher intelligences
which…?

Well what I'm saying is that, creation has
both positive and negative energy in it.

And so in that sense you can say, yes, there's
both positive and negative forces, based on

what beings choose to align themselves with.
But what I'm saying is the expression of
positive or negative, has to do with what

an individual, based on their belief systems,
chooses to align with.

Sure.
So if they are in fear-based belief systems,
they're going to align with a negative side

of reality and express it through themselves.
If they're in positive-based belief systems,
they're going to align with the positive

side of reality and express that.
So basically what I'm saying is that, it
still comes down to the fact that individuals

have a choice as to what to align with, and
it's not necessarily even that the so-called

positive and negative forces, on a very basic
physics level, even necessarily have an agenda,

it's just that this is what positive energy
is, this is what negative energy is.

And if you align with one or the other, you're
going to express what is relevant and reflective

of that energy, through yourself.
So the real battle is really just taking place
within yourself, more than the idea that the

battle is taking place “out there” somewhere.
Because creation contains both sides, and
it's not that it's battling with itself,

but depending on what you lock into, the expression
of love, or the expression of fear, can be

personified through any particular individual,
based on what they align with.

Okay.
Yeah I mean, just in mythology and scriptural
accounts, especially in the East, there's

so many accounts of the gods and demons battling
it out, you know.

Sure, sure, but I think that's symbolic
of what's going on within us.

It doesn't mean that consciousness can't
express itself archetypally in a seemingly

external, autonomous being – it can.
But I think that we only perceive that and
experience that when we're on that vibrational

wavelength first.
Right, yeah, that's good enough.
And we align ourselves with one or another's
tendencies in creation according to our proclivities

– according to choice, according to our
makeup, and our karma, whatever.

Sure, sure.
So you'll get the experience you're on
the wavelength of.

So you know, anyone who's in that fear-based
belief system is going to experience an archetypal,

autonomous, demonic reflection that – because
everything is conscious and made of consciousness,

of course will have its own consciousness,
and will present itself as an external entity

with this agenda.
But it's actually activated by someone choosing
to be on that wavelength, and then seeing

the reality, and experiencing the reality
that they're on the wavelength of.

Okay, good.
One other thing, just looping back a little
bit, I get the impression that some channelers

are very drained, and it even takes a toll
on their health to do it.

I think Jane Roberts might have been a case-in-point.
Whereas in your case, you've found it nothing
but energizing and enlivening, and it's

enriched and enhanced your personal life as
Darryl.

Yes, yes, for the first couple of years it
was tiring.

But I think what happens is it takes a while
for a person to get used to the level of energy

that is coming through when you make a connection
like that, to a higher-plane entity.

And so at first there might be resistance
within the person and that resistance to that

energy is, I think, what causes the exhaustion.
But if you open up, eventually, ideally, I
think the idea is to relax and trust it, and

open up enough so that when you really let
that energy through without resistance, then

you find that it actually does start to sustain,
support and energize you.

So if people are only experiencing the idea
of exhaustion and being drained by it, that

might be an indication – I'm not going
to say in every case, because I can't speak

for everyone, 'cause everyone has their
own path, but – it might in general be an

indication, that perhaps more work needs to
be done internally, to let go of any negative

belief in there that might be causing a resistance
to that higher frequency.

And therefore, the channel working on themselves
a little more might ease the resistance to

that energy and allow them to experience it
in a much more positive and sustaining and

uplifting way.
And perhaps not even just belief, but neuro-physiological
wiring might need to be kind of rearranged

a bit before you can really do it without
obstruction.

Sure, well it goes hand in hand.
I think that anytime you change your belief
system you actually do change your neurological

wiring, and it becomes more reflective of
the fact you can handle more energy.

That's one of the reasons again, why you
see me go into the altered state and you hear

the breathing and things like that change,
because I think you're actually seeing a

physiological reflection of the different
neurological state that the body is going

into to be able to sustain that energy, without
causing a detriment to me.

Yeah.
You're probably familiar with some people
who have been on television like Teresa Kaputo,

you know, the Long Island Medium and James
Von Prague, and 3 or 4 others.

Sure, and John Edwards…
John Edwards.
Do you consider what they are doing channeling?
'Cause they don't really seem to check
out at all; they seem to be all there and

they just say, “Oh, I'm just picking up
something here,” and “I'm talking to

your mother.”
Yes, yes, and that's typically the form
of channeling that's referred to as “mediumship.”

They're acting as a conscious medium.
They're sort of hearing or picking up on
symbols in their own consciousness that are

translations of what a spirit entity might
be sending, and they're just translating

it through, to you, as a medium.
In a sense it is a form of channeling, just
maybe a different form of channeling.

But I think also they do represent what I
was saying earlier, as kind of where channeling

might be heading in general.
Because the idea is not necessarily TO check
out; the idea is to participate, but do so

in a way where you know you're not, let's
say, filtering or interfering with the information.

So I think we're going to see more and more
examples of people remaining relatively conscious,

while at the same time developing the ability
to tap into those things, and still participate

while they're delivering the information,
without really putting their own filters on

it.
So yeah, it's a form of channeling.
And I guess you could say channeling is a
form of mediumship.

It's just kind of different styles of the
same idea.

Might it be the case that if someone like
Teresa Kaputo is connecting with somebody's

mother, that that entity – her mother – is
not so dissimilar from her or the people she's

conveying it to, that she doesn't really
have to go into a deep kind of disassociated

state?
Whereas if you're channeling some kind of
alien from the future, maybe that life form

is so different, that you really, gotta, sort
of…

Maybe, maybe, I mean it could be the case
for me personally.

Again, based on maybe the belief system I
was raised in, it just might be easier for

me to go into a state that way, to allow something
that I consider to be so different to come

through more easily.
I don't think it has to be done that way,
but that's just maybe the way it works for

me.
Okay.
I bet you some people have asked you – and
I'll ask you this in case it's on some

people's minds – when you first began
dealing with this stuff you thought, “Whoa,

what's going on?”
And you began reading a lot of spiritual books,
and you probably immersed yourself and read

a ton of them – does Bashar say stuff that
you couldn't have learned and didn't learn

in reading?
I mean, does he surprise you with things he
comes out with, which you never even heard

of before and all of a sudden this thing is
coming out?

Yes, all the time.
There are people who have spoken to him who
are very well-trained psychologists, people

who have spoken to him who are physicists,
and they've walked away happy with the information

that he's given them, that I wouldn't
have a clue how to give them.

So yes, there are definitely perspectives,
ideas, concepts, that he's come through

with that are beyond anything that I've
ever studied.

Yeah, that does happen.
Okay.
You eluded earlier to the fact that you say
[that] Bashar is actually a future you, in

the future!
How far in the future are we talking here?
Well, here's where we get into some bizarre
temporal mechanics, because from Bashar's

perspective everything really does exist at
the same time.

But he understands we're perceiving things
a little more linearly, so he's expressing

things in a more linear fashion.
In the way we think of time, he's saying
that he would be considered about 300 years

in our future however, however, he's also
saying that because he exists in a parallel

reality – another alternate dimension – his
reality vibrates - for lack of a better term

– 10 times faster than ours.
So evolutionarily, they're actually 3,000
years ahead of us.

Oh I see.
… in their civilization.

But in terms of how we would relate to them,
in our linear sense, he says we would think

of them as about 300 years in the future.
Yeah.
Even if he weren't you, there are civilizations,
I believe, that are functioning on different

levels or dimensions that we would consider
to be thousands of years ahead of ours.

Yes, absolutely.
I mean, does he ever tell you how things have
turned out?

What's happening with the climate change?
Well, that's when things get odd with temporal
mechanics.

Because he's saying there's no such thing
as a prediction of “the” future.

There are an infinite number of probable future
realities, and depending on the decisions

we make in the present, then it determines
which future probable reality we will choose

to experience.
But they all exist at the same time.
Now, he can sometimes look at the energy that
exists right now, which is basically what

he's saying a prediction is - it's not
a prediction of the future; it's a sensing

of the energy that exists at the moment the
prediction is made – and if that energy

doesn't change course, then it might have
a high degree of probability of coming to

pass.
If it does change course, then of course,
another probability will come up.

So, that's always in fluctuation.
He has, from time to time on very rare occasions
said, “Alright, I'm sensing right now

that there's something going on in your
collective society, that has so much energy

and so much momentum behind it, for one reason
or another, that it seems unlikely that it's

going to change,” but this happens very
rarely and it has to have A LOT of energy

and A LOT of momentum behind it.
One of the ones I can point to is, I know
that there's actually a recording that exists

that was made at a session, I think in 1998,
where he did say that somewhere around the

year 2001 there would be a terrorist attack
in New York City.

That came to pass.
So, the only reason that that was possible
to be made by him as a prediction is, for

some reason when he scanned all the probable
timelines, it seemed relatively inevitable

that we were heading down that path, somehow.
And so he felt it was unlikely to go into
any other probable future reality.

So that's kind of how it works for them.
There are some other generalities that he
said, “Yes, I can see this has a high degree

of probability of coming to pass,” but he'll
never say, “This is an absolute.”

Because once you actually let someone know
where the energy is going, we could decide

to change it.
So in a sense, a prediction can actually make
itself obsolete just by becoming known.

Yeah, and there's all those sci-fi movies
about going back and changing something in

the past.
And you know, your parents aren't born [chuckling]
as a result, and so that kind of thing.

Yeah, and from Bashar's perspective it doesn't
really work like that.

It's more along the lines, I think now he's
saying of, what physicists are saying when

they talk about the “many worlds” theory
– quantum mechanics.

Everything exists as a parallel reality and
you can't actually go back in your own past.

You might shift over into a parallel reality
that LOOKS like your past, and meet a VERSION

of yourself that looks like your younger self,
but whatever it is you're doing in that

reality is another reality and has nothing
to do with your timeline.

Hmm.
So would it be true to say, based on that
point, that you and I are living parallel

lives in other parallel universes, that are
similar to the ones we're living, or a little

bit different in certain respects?
Yes, or very different.
It can run the entire gamut according to Bashar.
You can experience or perceive a parallel
reality version of yourself that is almost

indistinguishable from what you're experiencing,
and you can perceive a parallel reality version

that's so different you almost probably
wouldn't recognize it…and everything in-between.

Hmm, interesting.
So maybe one parallel universe I'm just
wearing a different shirt, in another realm

I'm a professional baseball player or something.?
Right, and in another, you may be a different
life form altogether.

[phone ringing in background]
Interesting, okay, so before we lose the point

you were just talking about – sounds like
you're saying that there are all these probabilities

and the future is malleable, the present is
malleable, and that there are certain probabilities

which have a lot more momentum behind them,
and others which are probably less probable.

Yes.
But it's not cut in stone and it's not
predetermined, and there is, you would say

I suppose, that we do have free will.
I mean, some spiritual teachers say that we
don't have free will.

Well, I think it's a combination.
I mean, you can look at it really, paradoxically,
from almost any point of view and be correct.

Bashar's recently talked about the fact
that…okay, here's one level of it: you

can say that linearly speaking, before this
life, your “soul” decided to experience

a certain thing, to explore a certain theme.
You could say that's your destiny, you will
live this life.

Yeah, like you signed up to do the Bashar
thing.

Yeah, but how you do it, how you get there,
how you experience it, the way you go about

it, that's up to your free will.
It's up to what you prefer, how you feel
best doing it.

So it's like saying well, you'll walk
down this hallway - that you can't avoid.

But you can run down the hall, you can walk
backwards, upside-down, left, right, slow,

fast, wearing this, wearing that, singing
a song, being upset – how you do it is your

free will, up to you, but you will walk down
that hallway.

So he's saying from that perspective, there's
a combination of the idea of destiny and free

will working hand in hand to create your experience.
On another level, he's saying you could
look at it and say well, you are your destiny.

In this particular theme you can't be anything
but you, therefore that's your destiny.

How you choose to express who you are, again
can come into the idea of free will, but it's

still always going to be YOU expressing that.
And therefore, you could say now you are fuzzing
the borders between free will and destiny,

because you can't express yourself as anything
other than you, so now they become a little

more blended.
On the third level he's saying, you could
also look at it as the idea of, well, let's

say for example you come to a crossroads and
you go, “Well, I can have a choice of turning

left or I have a choice of turning right.”
Now you say, “Okay, my destiny is to come
to this crossroad, but my free will is to

choose to turn right or to choose to turn
left.”

Well, he's also saying, well how do you
really know that?

You could choose right and how do you know
that wasn't your destiny?

And then you could change your mind and say,
“No, no, no, I'm not going to go here,

I'm going to choose left,” well how do
you know that wasn't your destiny?

So ultimately what he's saying is, it's
kind of a moot point, because from this level

you can't really tell whether it's free
will or destiny.

So it can be either, it can be both, and it
can be neither.

It's really just about the experience that
you are, and that experience informs you,

and you do what you do.
And it almost doesn't matter whether it's
free will or destiny, because the ultimate

outcome is the same: you're having an experience
that adds to the expansion of who and what

you are as a conscious being, and that's
really the bottom line, and it doesn't really

matter what mechanism you're using – destiny
or free will – to achieve that.

Would it be true to say then that, we have
a certain destiny but most of us perceive

ourselves as having some wiggle room, some
latitude in which we can choose this or that,

and it may be that from some ultimate perspective
it is all predetermined, and there isn't

any free will.
But as long as you PERCEIVE yourself as having
free will, then it's not helpful to sort

of philosophically play with the notion that
it's all predetermined, because you perceive

yourself as having free will and you're
responsible to exercise it intelligently,

as best as you can.
Yes, and that's the experience your're
having.

See, I think what Bashar is actually saying
is, the structure of existence never changes;

that's predetermined.
But your experience of the structure is what
changes, and that's the idea of your free

will, is that you can experience the structure,
the destiny, from any perspective you want

to.
And as an experience, it's real, but it
may not necessarily be representative of the

fact that the structure already exists and
never changes.

So you're using a structure to create different
“real” experiences of that structure,

and it's the experience that matters because
that's what creates change, that's what

creates growth, that's what creates a difference
of perspective, whereas the structure never

changes.
So, it's kind of both-in-one, and it's
the experience that really matters; it's

the process that's the point.
Yeah, good.
At this point I want to interject a few questions
that people sent in.

They're kind of related to what we've
been talking about.

One person asked, “I'd like to know if
Darryl activated his Merkaba,” – and you're

going to have to define that, 'cause I don't
even know what it is [chuckling] – “before

he became a channel, after, or if it was always
activated?

Bashar comes to and through him to give channeled
information.

Does he ever travel to Bashar?
And if so, what happens?”
Is that all one question?
[laughing]
I guess that's 2 questions from the same

person, so maybe the Merkaba one first.
Okay, a Merkaba, in general by a lot of people
is sort of considered an energy matrix, that

is representative of a certain state of alignment
that allows one to express more of your full

being into this reality.
How to answer that question?
I think looking at it from that perspective,
because in a sense a Merkaba is just a translation

of an idea, it's a permission slip as Bashar
says, it's a way of looking at a process.

Not necessarily an absolute description of
the structure of existence, but it may be

a way of interpreting the structure of creation
or existence.

And in that sense, yes, of course I think
the so-called configuration of my theme – if

you want to refer to that as a Merkaba – was
always there from birth, but certainly it

was activated by several incidents in my life.
And one of them of course - one of the strongest
ones - being the UFO incident itself, that

may have activated my ability to bring through
what was relevant to that particular matrix

or structure you're calling a Merkaba.
I have had experiences with Bashar in dreamtime
directly.

The only thing I've ever experienced directly
in physical reality is his ship, twice –his

ship.
But I've had about four dream experiences
where I've either gone to his reality, or

we've had conversations all night long in
some sort of other alternate dimension that

I know are not just normal dreams, because
that's all that's happening, because I'm

talking to him like I'm talking to you right
now, and certain things happen in that dream

state that are very unusual.
So I guess in that sense, yes, you could say
there are times when I've gone to him, but

it usually happens when I'm asleep, at least
so far.

Okay, so that I'd say answered both questions.
So that ship you saw back in Los Angeles many
years ago, that was Bashar's ship?

Yes.
Okay, and was it just sort of an interdimensional
kind of ship that came up from some other

dimension, or did it come from another physical
planet someplace that we can see through a

telescope?
Well, it can do both.
It can do both.
Does he have a home planet?
Yes, yes, they have a home planet, but like
I said, it's in an alternate reality.

So we can't actually see it unless we shift
to that dimension, in the same way that they

can't really perceive our reality as physical
unless they shift into our dimension.

But if we were to overlap our reality with
their reality, his star system would be about

500 light years in the direction of the Orion
Constellation.

But again, it's invisible to us unless we
shift into their physical reality.

But yes, they do have a home planet.
That's interesting.
So the universe that we see through the Hubble
telescope or whatever, we're just seeing

a layer of the cake, it's just one dimension.
And if we had a telescope that could not only
see far away but could shift dimensions, we

would see whole different configurations of
stars and galaxies and planets on those other

dimensions...?
Yeah, in much the same way that here we have
a visible spectrum of light.

And we can't really with our eyes perceive
infrared or ultraviolet light, but we have

instruments that can do that for us and allow
us to peer at something that our senses can't

naturally pick up.
So yes, Bashar's people have the ability
to do that naturally.

They've developed and evolved to the point
where they can perceive other dimensions with

their own actual senses, and that's one
of the reasons why he can make connections

to his past self, which is me, because for
them, time and space is not as rigid or fixed

as it is at this point for us.
But we're evolving to a point where we're
gaining the same kind of flexibility that

his civilization already experiences.
You know how astrophysicists talk about that
maybe 96% of the apparent matter and energy

in the universe is invisible – dark energy,
dark matter – and they can't account for

the way the universe behaves based upon what
we can see with our eyes; there's all this

mass that somehow causes gravitational effects
–they call dark matter.

So is that mass actually related to these
other dimensions of the universe that you're

just referring to?
Maybe, but what I'm actually referring to
is something that looks similar to our own

universal reality - perhaps with its own matter,
its own dark matter, its own dark energy - but

it's just in a different vibrational state.
Perhaps a better analogy would be the idea
that Bashar often uses, which is like our

TV programs.
When you're watching a particular program
on TV, you know there are hundreds of other

programs that are playing at the same time,
but you don't perceive them because you're

not on that channel.
But if you switch channels then you're perceiving
a completely different program, in much the

same way as the program you were just watching,
but now you're no longer perceiving the

one you were looking at before, but it's
still going on, so it's more like that.

Each is its own real reality, its own real
universe, but they're on different frequencies

and so they interpenetrate and overlap, but
we only see the universe that we happen to

be tuned to.
Yeah, and all the channels that you're getting
on your satellite dish or your cable, they're

actually all coming in at once, and they're
not conflicting with each other.

It's just that your tuner is selecting a
particular one or another.

Right, so I think how dimensions function.
They're all real, they're all existing
at the same time, they're all overlapping

all at once, but we have a very, very fine-tuned
frequency that is relevant for this particular

reality experience.
And we need to expand our ability and become
a broader spectrum antenna so to speak, before

we can really start picking up on these other
realities.

Now I think that we do that sometimes, from
time to time inadvertently, and this is where

people have experiences of other dimensions,
of another reality, the spirit realm, what

have you – is that sometimes our antenna
might get a little bit more broad-based for

one reason or another, and we start perceiving
things that are going on at the same time,

and we get kind of a double exposure of the
2 different, or 3 or 4 different realties

that do exist simultaneously.
So it does happen from time to time, but for
the most part, let's say 99% of the time,

we're focused in basically one particular
frequency of a reality, because that's what

we wanted to experience.
And so would it be kind of simplistic or misguided
to try to map the topography of one reality

to another; to let's say that if you could
shift to a different dimension, there might

be another planet between here and the moon,
or something, or are they really so much in

their own realms that it's not sensible
or practical or meaningful to try to match

up or compare?
It depends.
It depends on whether or not that's relevant
for the person doing that kind of exploration,

or that kind of research – it might be very
relevant for certain people.

And maybe this in some sense is what -to use
a general term - is what some shamans or enlightened

masters are able to do, is it's more relevant
for them – they've made it more relevant

in their lives – to be able to perceive
things that in general, others don't.

And therefore they can give you that…it's
like: if you tune this way, you'll see this.

This is what I'm seeing.
But it may not be relevant for everyone again,
because most people have a particular theme

they're exploring and certain things may
not be completely relevant for them to explore

in that life.
But it may be very relevant for other people.
I have a few friends – several close friends
– who do perceive these other realities

routinely.
They see angels and stuff like that all the
time, and they see them attending to people.

Like you know, you might be at a restaurant
and see, okay, these subtle beings are attending

to that table or something.
So there does seem to be, in the case of those
beings, there does seem to be an interface

or interconnection between their reality and
ours, and they're serving some function

in our reality.
Yeah, and I think this is happening more and
more.

I mean, I think this is actually part of what
this transformational age is all about.

We're developing more ability to perceive
what we heretofore could not perceive, and

that's a reflection of the expansion of
our consciousness.

And I think that's one of the things that's
going on in this age of transformation.

Good.
Here is another question that somebody else
sent in.

We kind of covered this but I think there's
something new here: “Darryl has said that

Bashar is him in the future and Bashar lives
on another planet.

Does Darryl feel that he a starseed, in that
he usually carries out his incarnations on

other planets and comes to Earth for specific
tasks, at specific times?”

[silence pause] That's the question [laughter].
You can pass some of these questions if you
feel like that's okay.

No, well I suppose that I could say that from
a specific perspective, the answer to all

of that could be “yes,” but again because
Bashar has explained that time is not really

linear, that everything exists all at once,
I wouldn't necessarily put it in the same

framework.
Let's just say I know that like a lot of
people, there are probably incarnations going

on simultaneously in other civilizations that
I'm connected to.

There are probably other incarnations going
on on Earth in different timeframes, that

I'm connected to.
And some of those lives in both areas probably
serve certain functions that have to do with

the transformations going on here, on the
planet, and some of them probably don't.

So I would say maybe the best answer is “all
of the above.”

Okay, good, there's another one: “I'm
in a similar boat, or perhaps spaceship is

a better term,” someone wrote this, “I
found that experiencing life on different

dimensions, including knowing something about
the jobs I do elsewhere, has completely erased

any of the doubt about what happens after
we leave this incarnation, not to mention,

it puts this incarnation in perspective.”
That's more of a statement than a question.
Yes, I would agree with it.
Some people – that works for some people.
Some people don't need to do that, and I'm
not saying that one is better than the other.

It's just again; it comes down to what theme
someone is exploring.

There are people that don't want to know
anything about their connections to other

realities, other lives, what have you.
They get along just fine because they need
that focus, other people, it's part of the

expansion to be aware of those things, and
I agree that it can put this experience in

a different perspective that can be very expanding
and very helpful for people.

So that is sort of the same spaceship that
I'm in, and so in that sense I

find a lot of familiarity with that statement,
sure.

Yeah, personally I find it very - even if
I'm not experiencing all that stuff – I

find it very gratifying to realize that there's
far more to the universe than what meets our

mundane senses.
You know it's thrilling, it's exciting.
It is.
It's a much bigger reality than we think.
Yeah, and perhaps it also roots out the tendency
to think, to say, “It's only this.”

Whenever anyone uses the word “just” or
“only” about reality, you realize they're

kind of locked into a ridged view.
Sure, yeah, and that's okay if that's
what they need, but there is more to it than

that.
There's a line from The Incredible String
Band, whom you're probably too young to

remember, but it was, “Whatever you think,
it's more than that.”

[chuckling] I may be older than you think.
Can't tell with that bald head, you know?
[laughing] Okay let's shift a little bit
more.

We've sort of been weaving around here,
but let's shift from the Darryl story to

the essence and some of the details of what
Bashar actually teaches.

If you had to sum it up in a nutshell, you
know, the elevator ride version of what Bashar

is actually here to convey, what would it
be?

Basically, the thing that I love about Bashar's
information is, he takes a lot of [sound of

dog barking in background] metaphysical concepts
and he really – no pun intended – brings

them down to Earth, with very pragmatic and
practical understandings based on physics,

as to why they work.
And the one that I think is one of the most
important things, is he talks about what everyone

has now been hearing for years: follow your
passion, follow your bliss, act on your highest

excitement.
The reason why he says that is so critical
is because, the sensation that we experience

as passion, as excitement, as joy, as creativity,
as love, that sensation is your body's physical

translation of the vibrational frequency of
your true, natural, core being.

And so anytime you act on something that contains
or expresses or reflects that energy of excitement,

that energy of passion, that energy of living-your-dreams
kind of idea, or bliss, you are in alignment

with who you truly are.
The thing, as he explains it, about excitement,
is that it is a complete kit.

And what he means by that is, excitement and
acting on it is the driving engine of your
