Self/No Self = Heart

Ascension 22

I sometimes hear Buddhists and Advaitins (followers of the non-dual path) say that they would come with us on the journey to ascension if they only saw how the two paths fit together.

Perhaps I can offer my interpretation of how they fit.

Ascension is know by many names to terrestrial sages.  Moksha and sahaja samadhi to Hindus; nirvana and buddhahood to Buddhists; redemption and salvation to Christians. It signifies entry into what is called the “mental planes” in the afterlife world, “heaven” to the early Christian Fathers, and the “Fifth Dimension” to the Company of Heaven.

The medium through which entry into nirvana or heaven is effected is to many terrestrial sages known  as “Self-Knowledge” or “Self-Realization.”

The Company of Heaven seem to shy away from use of the word “Self” in this current consciousness shift. Therefore they don’t use the term “Self-Realization.”

They come back again and again to the use of the word “heart.” To me they’re the same.

I think they do that because they have a short amount of time till ascension and vast numbers of people to address and impact. Rather than get caught up in doctrinal discussions of  “self/no self/Self/No Self (anatta),” they prefer to use the one word, immediately understandable to most people on Earth – heart.

Moreover, the whole approach that’s been taken in this ascension centers around love. It doesn’t center around light and illumination. It doesn’t focus on realization or knowledge. It isn’t even on ascension itself. It has been on love. And love is probably irreversibly associated in the human mind with the heart.

Archangel Michael has made a number of telling comments to me on the subject. Once I asked him who it was that was watching what was happening and he confirmed that it was, not the personality, not the ego, not our Third-Dimensional consciousness, not some other construction in consciousness, but the Self or Atman. But notice how he begins by focusing attention on the heart:

Steve Beckow: There’s something that focuses its attention on the higher self, the ego, the mind. What is that something that does that?

Archangel Michael: It is that part of you that is your heart and part of you that is your ego, that loves to have separation. But it is the internal knowing that there are many pieces of you, not that they are separated but to be drawn upon and brought together in the harmony of the integrated self.

SB: Okay, but always there is something that is aware, always, always aware and that never ceases to be aware. That aware part of me focuses on the mind, or focuses on me, or the higher self… What IS that part of me? Is it the Atman?

AAM: It is your very soul. (1)

SB: Now is that the Atman or beyond the Atman?

AAM: No, it is your Atman.

SB: That is a question I’ve had for decades! Thank you for settling that one for me. (2)

In the following comment, he intimates that heart-centered awareness and heart-centered love are important parts of the new paradigm:  “Leadership is a tenuous role and it is particularly a tenuous role in terms of the understanding, in the new paradigm, of heart-centered awareness, of heart-centered love.”  (3)

Let’s look at his next comment: “Transformative love, heart-centered awareness, expansion, increase in frequency and vibration is not achieved – let me be even stronger; cannot be achieved – from a place of defensiveness.” (4) Here he almost seems to offer transformative love, heart-centered awareness, expansion, and increase in frequency and vibration as synonyms. Increase in frequency and vibration is ascension; therefore heart-centered awareness and love appear to be synonymous with or lead up to ascension.

It isn’t as if the notion that the Company of Heaven seems to be putting forward is not known to us. One of the most famous passages in the Bible has God grant Solomon a wish and the king responds: “Give … thy servant an understanding heart to judge thy people, that I may discern between good and bad.” (5)

What difference is there between heart-centered awareness and an understanding heart?  Are we all now destined to have the wisdom of Solomon, upon entering Fifth Dimensionality?  (6)

The fact that the Company of Heaven departs from the practice of so many terrestrial sages and focuses on heart-centered awareness and love does not mean that Buddhists and Advaitins cannot somehow continue to focus on the Self/No Self.  It just requires both parties – the non-dualists and the followers of the Company of Heaven – to make the translation:  Self/No Self = Heart.

There are many other places where translation is required. Here are two examples. The Divine Mother = Shakti = the Holy Spirit. The Christ = the Atman = The Self. We have to knit together the differing accounts of the sages. Here we need to connect the terms “Self” and “heart” if we’re to make the connection between the non-dualist and ascension paths.

There’s no need for the light- and loveholders of the world to join the lightworkers, except in heart, in unity, in love. The lightholders are seeking illumination. The loveholders are seeking and wanting to share love.  The lightworkers are building Nova Earth.

We all have separate but important roles to play. My heart is with the lightholders but my commitment is to the lightworkers. This lifetime is about building Nova Earth for me. AAM has said expliclty no Himalayan cave this lifetime, etc. (7)

Nonethless, we’re all headed for the same place.  Just as the eye, the ear and the mouth serve different functions, but the body carries all to the same place, so loveholders, lightholders and lightworkers also serve different functions, but the body of spirituality will carry us all to the same place.

All of us are vital to the functioning of the total body of humanity and all of us have a reason for being here, now.


(1)  The Atman is the soul, but I want to hear the word from his mouth.  Nothing else will settle my doubts.

Saving Mother Earth


The world turns and daily living continues, sometimes frenetic and at other times dull. Human life bustles about on the surface of the Earth but, deep below, all is still and quiet, cool, contemplative and majestic. If you could sit your energy inside the Earth, away from the core but deep enough to be surrounded by rock and crystal, you would know what it is to just truly be.

The planet Earth has existed for aeons of time and, well before animal or human life, the structure of the Earth was already formed and her energy stabilised. The molten core surrounds her diamond core which is her heart, and the molten lava is her heart’s protector. Although it steams and rages it is also her life blood and her warmth. The huge crystals that have formed within her are her eyes and her energy – they vibrate according to her vitality, her energy levels and the amount of love that she is able to emit. The vibration of her crystals varies from area to area and according to the vibrations of human life upon her surface. The rock formations within her and upon her are her foundations and her strength. The water wells, ponds, lagoons, lakes, waterfalls and seas are her tears and emotions, and their state reflects her moods and her challenges.

The beauty of Mother Earth has withstood the ravages of time, weather and influences of man, although there are many areas now that have been ruined seemingly beyond repair by toxicity, abuse, pollution and over-resourcing. Although Mother Earth is strong and resilient, there is only so much that she can withstand and, without adequate exchanges of energy, her resources are dwindling and her energy is waning. The importance and practicalities of recycling, greening and reduction of greenhouse gases notwithstanding, it is essential that love is returned to her in equal measure. In simple terms, the act of sending love and light to Mother Earth, the life upon and within her, her heart, her blood, her emotions and her bones cannot be underestimated.

If every human stopped for one minute every day to thank Mother Earth for her gifts, to send her love and light and to make one adjustment to their lifestyle that replenished rather than drained her, the effects on her inner and outer health would be amazing and apparent to all. The collective nature of the human consciousness and the fact that all on Earth is one with Mother Earth means that every beautiful thought and deed directed towards her and all who dwell upon her magnifies her radiance and her recovery. Of course, every toxic thought and deed has the same, opposite effect on her health. Please, beloveds, take the time to send love and healing energy to Mother Earth and to all life upon her, including your fellow man, every day. You will be astounded at the effects.
