SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.
I would like to talk briefly about propensities today. Propensities are tendencies towards actions that exist in people because of past actions that are repeated.
A person can have a tendency, for instance, to meditative mind, created by past actions of meditation.
Or a person could have a propensity towards a particular type of ‘acting out’ created by past ‘acting out’ actions of a certain type. For instance, they might have a propensity to take other people’s lives … to murder them. They might have a propensity to rob people or burglarize houses. They might have a propensity to traffic in children, or to seek to snatch children and use them for sexual purposes.
These types of ‘acting out’ propensities are the sort of thing that communities tend to label ‘crimes’.
What they mean by ‘crimes’ is that the propensity of the mind that acts out these particular scenarios … in the heart of hearts of each person in the community, it is clear that the thoughts being broadcast, the emotions being felt by the people who have these propensities are doing damage to the community.
And so, they attach a penalty to it. The penalty is ‘time’ … time in prison, or community service, or a penalty of money … it could be a fine; something that the community feels will remove those thoughts and those emotions from their immediate vicinity for awhile, so that their children can grow up peacefully and happily, for productive lives.
My own propensity is towards a meditative life. In the early years, I would meditate every morning, and try to develop the meditative mind propensity. Then in later years I began to feel a meditative mind all day long, with rare exceptions. I would feel, more and more often, meditative mind, no matter whether I was out in the world; or if I was working on a project at home … whatever it was.
So, after awhile, whatever it is that we are thinking about, and feeling, and ‘acting out’ in the real world tends to integrate as a part of our personality.
So that is ‘propensity’. If you would like to know more about propensity, search my blog for the category: Samskaras – karmic miasmic patterning – morphogenetic field distortions … ‘Samskaras’ means ‘propensity’ in a foreign language.
God bless you all,
And keep you safe,
And be with you
Through all your days.
So long till next time.
In love, Light and joy,
Alice B. Clagett

The Demon has been ‘acting out’ a bad propensity, as can be seen by his awful visage. –Alice B. Clagett
