The Center: This Means Something….

Steve, Suzi, and Paul are on their way to Sedona for Linda’s Bridge to Now. Back Nov. 16. Posts have been scheduled.

All my life I’ve been attracted to the frontiers of knowledge so I’ve drawn a lot of opposition to myself and a fair amount of ridicule.

I remember vividly saying to myself as a young researcher that, if someone else had already written a book about something, then I didn’t want to write about it.

Let me have a crack at something new. Let me explore the frontiers of knowledge.

I’ve always wanted to venture into the unknown.

Doing that, I was told “no” so many times that I finally left the box.  “No” to studying “cultural” history, enlightenment, popular culture in anthropological terms; no to museum collections of new, instead of old, artifacts, opposing automation, protesting jobs sent oveseas,  9/11, angels, flying saucers – no, no, no, no.

I could have let the whole thing go and come back within the box. But I chose not to. I imagine that’s a familiar story to you.  Out there on the skinny branches of metaphysics, spirituality, the New Age.

But I’m writing to continue developing my own understanding of a mystical subject: The importance of the center.  (2)

It’s significance shows up especially when we have a disagreement with someone and feel a tug to move out to the extremes of passion.

The extent to which I can disagree with a person while only minimally leaving the center is increasingly important to me with every passing year.

What is the center? For me, saying the “center” is the same as saying the “heart” or “soul.” For me, the center of our being is the portal to the heart/soul.

Focussing on the center leads to absorption in it as a constantly-receding point of awareness and love.

The worst possible thing in spirituality, it seems to me, is to be off-center, which I think of as “self-righteousness.” The ego is off-center and the ego has little place in spirituality. (I originally said “no place” but that seemed off-center.)

Equanimity exists in the center and isn’t spirituality about developing equanimity – at least towards anything worldly?

Egolessness is associated with the center. But a little ego to defend a righteous being who’s being attacked – I allow myself that.

I’m more likely to be a man of the left in terms of politics, economics, law, human rights. But in spirituality I’m lost, speechless, absorbed in contemplation of the center.

Every year, I find myself increasingly interested in the center, more absorbed in it. It holds my attention more than it did. It grips me.

I’m staring at the mashed potatoes, like Richard Dreyfus in Close Encounters, muttering to myself, “This means something…. This means something….”


(1) Like “From Everyman to Everyone – Part 1/2,” at; and “From Everyman to Everyone – Part 2/2,” at

(3) I now (2016) see no difference between the center, the heart, and the soul. I also acknowledge that the Company of Heaven seems to prefer the notion of the heart.

Our Journey to New Earth – Part One- by Those Who Are Ascending @ Awakening with Suzanne Lie


Our Journey to New Earth-Part One – By Those Who Are Ascending-through Sue Lie


Our Journey to New Earth

Those Who Are Ascending PART ONE

It started with the voices – that is the higher voices. But we heard them not above, but within. At first that was quite disorienting, as we were used to perceiving only outer communications, but very soon the inner location of the voices became normal. That is, it became normal for those of us who could hear the voices.

At first there were just a few of us who could hear the voices, and we thought we were alone in this experience. But, gradually, as we gained the courage to share our experience with others, we found out that we were not alone. Also, somehow, we knew with whom we could share our experience.

In fact, there were certain people that we began to recognize. We did not recognize their faces, or even their bodies. We recognized their “feel.” We later discovered that none of us understood the sensation of “recognition by feeling.”

However, as we found the courage to share our experience with certain people, we discovered that we were all experiencing these voices in the same way. We also learned that there were some people with whom we could NOT share our experience.

As one might guess, we could “feel” with whom we could share our “feelings.” We also discovered that we did not need to use our voices, or be in close physical proximity, to send or receive this feeling.

At first, we could only experience this unique feeling with our physical body, which would have a certain “knowing” that that person, whether close to us or far away, was communing with us. We began to use the word “commune” rather “communication” because we “felt” each other as if we were ONE person.

I know that this sensation will be very difficult to understand for people who have not experienced it, but I will try my best to explain it. At first, we had conscious experiences of a higher voice, but it was not above us. As I said before, this higher voice was within us.

Having someone communicate with us, especially an invisible someone, from inside of us was disconcerting at first. However, we came to realize that this inner voice was very comforting and even helpful in our daily life. It was as if someone with a higher perspective was showing us the possible and probable realties that we were entering.

I know that I lost you there, so I will explain the above statement more clearly. It was as if we all perceived an invisible, which means we only saw it with our imagination, fork in the road of our life.

One of our “choices of reality,” symbolized by the fork in the road, would absolutely occur if we did not alter ourselves in some fashion. That was the “probable reality.” The other choice, the “possible reality,” was an alternate path that we could experience if we chose.

At first it was disconcerting to have these myriad choices constantly entering our awareness, but as we grew accustomed to these inner directions we found that our lives began to flow. OK, now what do we mean by our life flowing?

The best way to explain a “flowing life” is that we found that when we just LET GO of all the myriad choices of daily life and allowed this inner directive to guide us, we were much happier and could actually do more.

In other words, instead of having to make myriad choices about our daily life, we only had two choices: follow this inner flow or experience the resistance of daily life. In fact, when we chose to “follow the flow,” we did NOT experience the resistance that was normal before we followed the flow.

It was as if we finally realized that there was an alternative to climbing that steep trail of daily life—alone. Until we chose to follow the flow we did not realize that there was an alternative to our “steep trail.” And, most important, before we chose to follow this collective inner directive, we did not know how very alone we had been.

We could remember how it was to feel so alone inside ourselves and even with a good friend or in a crowd of other people. In fact, “other” is a word that began to leave our awareness. As we followed this inner, collective reality, the concept of “other” became extinct.

I can feel that I should also explain the concept of an “inner, collective realty.” Before we began to follow this “inner feel,” we were alone within ourselves. Yes, we could share our lives through communication, which was usually about our work, our kids, or some other 3D activity, but it was separate people talking about separate lives.

The interesting thing that we discovered when we merged into the flow, was that, even though we were still “individuals,” we were not separate. We were so united within the flow at the most inner levels of our consciousness, that the external package of our bodies were merely the seemingly separate encasement for our ONE Being.

At first this situation was a bit disconcerting for us because we had all had myriad lives on third dimensional Earth. However, eventually we began to meet beings who had only had a few incarnations on Earth or had only bi-located onto third dimensional Earth while they kept their primary essence and consciousness on their Starship.

As we, the ones who had primarily identified ourselves as being humans from physical Earth, merged with the ones who knew they had only bi-located to Earth, we all began to remember our own higher dimensional lives. We were not surprised to discover that many of us who knew that we had bi-located to earth, were often from the same Ship.

As we all communed, we realized that some of us would return to our Ship, others would move into the energy patterns of fifth dimensional Earth, and others would expand their essence enough to be both on the Ship and on New Earth. New Earth is the name that we started to use for the fifth dimensional frequency of Earth.

At first, most of us could not remember much about our higher dimensional lives, but we could perceive and communicate with each other quite naturally. Sometimes one, or a few of us, would “phase out” of our collective perception for a while, but they would usually return. When they returned they had great stories to share with us.

Sometimes they would disappear because they had returned to physical or Astral Earth to assist in some manner. It appeared to us that they had only been gone for a short while, but when they returned, they told us how they had been on physical Earth for a long lifetime, or on Astral Earth for a lesser time.

Then there were some who had traveled to their Ship or to one of the frequency levels of New Earth. These “return stories,” as we called them, were very interesting. They told us how we could visit many different frequencies of New Earth and discover that each frequency was quite different.

There was what they called, “Perceptual New Earth,” in which we could perceive New Earth as if it was a movie. However, New Earth, as we eventually discovered, is actually an “in-between frequency.” This frequency of New Earth was more like an idea than a place.

However, if a group could combine their consciousness enough to embrace that “idea,” they would find themselves interacting as a group on a reality that was highly adaptive to their thoughts and emotions.

In order to remain in this “Adaptive New Earth” we would have to join into a group consensus that this version of New Earth was real. Hence, even though that reality seemed to waver and change with every thought and emotion, it was a “real” reality.

This Adaptive New Earth is where the group needed to remain in total consciousness calibration with each other or they would “fall out” of the experience. When they “fell out” they returned to Perceptual New Earth. When they “dropped out” and returned to Perceptual New Earth, they could share their experiences with the other members of that frequency of Perceptual Earth.

We must add here that perceptual Earth was more like the Astral Plane of the fourth dimension in that it looked like a dream or something that we were making up. However, we were all “making up” the same reality and/or having the same “dream.”

It was because of the adventures of some of our friends, that we realized we were moving into some form of a “new” Earth. We instinctively knew that we were experiencing this  “New Earth,” as we called it, because there was such a strong Unity Consciousness that constantly assisted us to better understand and accept our very unique experience.

Our collective experience of releasing that which we had always known as “real”, and embracing an entirely different reality, greatly facilitated bonding into intimate relationships with our group.

Some our friends, family and loved ones who were “just” physical began having our same experiences, but others that something was “wrong” with us and began to disappear from our life. These people were not having our experience, so it was very difficult for them to believe that what we were experiencing was REAL.

I understand that the above statement can be quite confusing, so I suggest you think of our experience as if you were dreaming and found dear friends and family from your waking life sharing the same dream with you.

In the same manner as when we were dreaming, once in a while we would “wake up” to find ourselves as a “normal physical human.” At first, this “return to being normal” was comforting. But eventually, when we returned to normal, all we could think about was returning to the higher dimensional feeling of our fifth dimensional unity.

We must add that our guidance was not from above, behind, or in front of us, like our third dimensional guidance. This guidance was within us. Our perception of reality as an inner feeling, thought, idea, emotion, and/or experience was likely the most challenging part of our experience.

Somehow, we knew that we were “the first ones in.” Hence, we often thought that we could not share our experience with anyone from our 3D, outer reality. Therefore, our inner boding became deeper and deeper. To make things more confusing to our third dimensional mind, everything in our journey was instant.

Eventually, we had bonded so deeply that our joint consciousness led us beyond Perceptual New Earth and Adaptive New Earth and into what we called “Threshold New Earth.” Just before we tried to enter Threshold New Earth we came to an invisible energy field.

When we came to an energy field, which we began to call a “threshold,” we began to realize that we had moved into a frequency of reality that was likely fifth dimensional. It was then that were also told that New Earth resonated to the fifth dimension.
