Looking Back

July 24, 2017 by 

The experience of every divine space I’ve been allowed to visit up till now – sacred love, bliss, peace, and abundance – has deepened over time. In computer terms, the experiences just keep “unpacking.”

I don’t see why that wouldn’t be the case with this latest experience of maestro – a term which could mean a leader or a master.

I always need to add that, in my opinion, we lightworkers are all ascended masters who’ve agreed to come back and cool our jets to assist others to awaken and re-build Nova Earth.

If I want my experience to deepen, I have to do my part and open to it, take responsibility for it, and get behind it.

I’ve had a concrete demonstration of the value of mastery. The stress I felt was almost enough to do me in.

But when I re-awakened to the state of being called “mastery,” the stress fell away. Everything became manageable. My consciousness returned.

I find it requires courage to even discuss the subject. Watch for someone calling me the “self-styled master.”

I’m not enlightened. (Just a taste of it.) I’m not a spiritual master. Nor do I wish to be one. I’m a writer.

I discussed the matter with Archangel Michael a few years back:

Steve Beckow: Can you help me make sense of returning to my interdimensionality while not becoming a guru figure?

AAM    It is very simple: Visit; don’t stay.  So what you are doing, you are pulling into the 5th, into what you think of as your reality the qualities of mastery without setting yourself apart from the masses.  (1)

We lightworkers call this wayshowing. I think what he says here to me will soon be relevant for all of us. All of us are maestros-as-ascended-masters, with no recall of it. We’re all of us soon to be maestros-as-leaders.

If we don’t lead, Michael has said, others won’t have the necessary experience to fill the void.


The term maestro is used most often to refer to an orchestra leader. But a master chef or violinist might also be called one.

The meaning deepens until we reach the spiritual master. If by that term you mean, ascended in another lifetime, then all of us are masters.

We’re here to straddle dimensions. To bring the higher energies into the lower and take those in the lower to the higher. Largely, we do it by example.

We’re here to behave as masters balancing Seventh-Dimensional Christ Consciousness and Love (not just Fifth), while remaining in a physical body.

We’re here to create new templates, try on new hats, and devise new ways of being, doing, and having.

Anyone who’s still looking for a spiritual master at this late date has declared them-self still to be seeking: that is, still in the student phase of life. There’s nothing wrong with that.

It’s just that lightworkers have another mission. They’ve come to Planet Earth from higher dimensions not to seek – not this lifetime – but to re-build.

Ask me if I’m interested in being a spiritual master? I’m not. I’m here to write and I’m here to build.

What have I built?

Systems of thought. Concepts of patterning in human behavior. Antidotes to things like vasanas, conditioned behavior, entrenched beliefs, masks, acts, numbers, etc.

Dictionaries that lay out the purpose of life, the existence of a Divine Plan for us all, what the the path looks like from God to God, what the afterlife looks like, what a common vocabulary and cross-cultural spirituality for religions might be … Gosh, I don’t know what else.

I’m satisfied. I could stop now and go off in a completely new direction. Or I could continue because there’s nothing else I’d rather do.

I’m at rest.

New Wine in New Bottles – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art: Archangel Faith by Lily Moses


New Wine in New Bottles

I’m going to create new meaning.

I’m not quite inventing a new word. It’s more investing an old word with new meaning.

I cite, as my authority for doing so, anthropologist Leslie White, who taught that we create new symbols by freely and arbitrarily bestowing meaning upon a thing or event.  I’m going to freely and arbitrarily bestow new meaning on an old word.

I’ll be offering it as a synonym for “enlightenment.”  But without the baggage that no longer seems to belong in a rapidly-changing area of life.

In the Sixties and Seventies, devotees claimed higher and higher, or more specialized, enlightenments for their masters.

It seemed everyone was Sri Sri Sri, and then 108 Sri. It seemed to me a sign that true enlightenment was missing somewhere.

Rather than try to pour new wine into old bottles, I’d like to bring in an additional term for it in my writings: “Aliveness.” (3)

Aliveness is a quality of being that can be experienced but not easily defined. When I feel “alive,” I feel whole, complete, satisfied, happy, and loving.

One advantage the term has over “enlightenment” is that it isn’t associated with stages; aliveness just unfolds and unfolds.

I define an increase in aliveness as an increase in our ability to access our powers, senses, happiness, love, etc.

The one feature common to each of the spiritual experiences that I’ve had is that each has raised, by a little bit more, my overall experience of aliveness. (1) With each new spiritual experience, I’ve felt a little more alive.

The most obvious example of that is that I now love, where before I didn’t. Before that expansion in aliveness, everything else pales. (2)

I may as well have been dead in the sense that the best of life (love) was hidden from me. The heart opening therefore translated into a huge leap in the experience of aliveness; in this case, the experience of love. Was that a stage of enlightenment? Maybe yes, maybe no. Who cares?

I’ve seen other capabilities also expand as a result of these experiences. My willingness, patience, the reach of my contemplation, meditation, and awareness, my relaxation, my emotional floor – all of these have expanded or risen, as the case may be.

Each experience has left a trace and each has expanded my overall feeling of aliveness.

Doing so releases us from one old hassle: Testing everyone’s claims to enlightenment. We’re simply expanding our experience of aliveness, more and more and more.

New wine in new bottles.

Do I feel more alive? Am I happier? Am I living more in the experience of love? As a spiritual student seeking aliveness, that’s all I really care about.


(1) The feeling of aliveness is a characteristic of Beingness. The study of Being is usually called “ontology.” God in Hindu scriptures is described as Being-Consciousness-Bliss Absolute. Being is sometimes also referred to as existence, less often as experience. Experience has to do with the senses whereas as beingness transcends the senses.

(2) Because the decision-maker in us decides whether we’ll feel happy or not based on an assessment of how we feel inside. When we feel loving, that’s a very good thing and the decision-maker decides to allow us to feel happy. Compare us in this metaphor to tubeworms, such as you find in the deep ocean. Tubeworms are very tentative when they come out. They easily skitter back in.

Whether we come out (declare ourselves happy) depends on this same tremulous consideration. One minute we’re out and then we quickly draw back in again. Or at least I do.

(3) However, not to get obsessive about the additional term.

DIARY OF A YOGI – Monday July 24th 2017


Dearest All

Last night I watched a movie called ‘Awake’ a biography about Yogananda, on Netflix, and then went to bed and fell into a deep sleep. I was awoken at about 1am by the most beautiful experience. A deep blue light was shining on me. It was a shaft of Light. I was sleeping in a dark room. The Light was there with my eyes open or closed. I received one message, that I was receiving the healing energies of the moon winds of the Buddha Amoghasiddhi.

It connected me to series of meditations that arose within me just over a year ago, over 5 days in July 2016, where various Buddhas and deities spontaneously appeared.

I include them below wishing only that reading and absorbing them may also inspire the energies of Light and Love to crystallize and transform and arise within you in your own particular way as you read.

Vairocana Buddha Form Body manifested

Seated Vairocana Buddha National Treasure 26. Unified Silla period, late 8th century; gilt-bronze, Bulguksa Temple South Korea. 


Now, I, Vairocana Buddha am sitting atop a lotus pedestal; On a thousand flowers surrounding me are a thousand Sakyamuni Buddhas. Each flower supports a hundred million worlds; in each world a Sakyamuni Buddha appears. All are seated beneath a Bodhi-tree, all simultaneously attain Buddhahood. All these innumerable Buddhas have Vairocana as their original body

In the meditation, there was a celestial radiance of a hundred million worlds.

The Primordial Buddha of Emptiness.

Profound feeling of celestial emptiness.


Sunday PM

Utterly amazing. The Clear Light of the Great Bliss is even more astonishing and vast than I can possible imagine.

The mighty brilliance of golden Guan Yin Senju-Kannon formed within me in Potala/Shambhala spreading Her Light from the Diamond Consciousness of the Womb Within Us to All Worlds

Diary July 12th


This morning when I sat to meditate a remarkable vision arose within me.

I will share it.

The Buddha Shakyamuni rose within me and in front of me rose a white cobra, the Dragon King.

This is the story of that vision, The Mucalinda Tree

With the passing of seven days, the Gracious One, the Buddha, after arising from his meditation approached the root of the Mucalinda tree and he sat in one cross-legged posture for seven days experiencing the happiness of liberation.

Then at that time a great cloud arose out of season, bringing seven days of rainy weather, cold winds, and overcast days. Then a great king Cobra, the Dragon-King Mucalinda, came out, and coiled his body seven times around the Buddha to keep him warm and placed his hood over the Buddha’s head to protect him from the rain, thinking

“May the Gracious One not be cold, may the Gracious One not be hot, may the Gracious One not be affected by gadflies, mosquitoes, wind, the heat of the sun, and serpents.”

After seven days the rain stopped and the Dragon-King Mucalinda understood that the sky was now clear, without a cloud. After unravelling his coils from the Gracious One’s body, withdrawing his own form, and creating the appearance of a young brāhmaṇa, he stood in front of the Gracious One, revering the Buddha with raised hands.

Mucalinda The Serpent King – unknown artist

The Buddha, having understood the significance of this, uttered this exalted saying

“Happy are they who are contented.

Happiness is for those who hear and know the truth.

Happy are they who have good will in this world towards all sentient beings. Happy are they who have no attachments and have passed beyond sense-desires.

The disappearance of the ‘I am’ , the self, is indeed the highest happiness.”

So I AM you and you are me.

We work through things together.

That is the evolution of Love and Unity.

You are ALL that Buddha under that Tree.

That is the Divine I AM Presence within you that I bow humbly to.

Rest now, take space, breathe, walk, eat, give joy.

Diary July 13th


This morning we visited the Temple of She Who Hears All the Sounds of the World, a Guan Yin Temple with great stones and a one thousand year old ginkgo tree.

I sat and meditated and was uplifted into the emptiness after I had said my prayers for all of you and given devotion to all my teachers.

My practice is very simple, prayers, devotion, alchemical affirmation (from Thoth’s Emerald Tablet – “All The Power That Ever Was Or Will Be Is Here Now” while drawing a circle of power on my left palm and holding it to my heart ), Kriya (Babaji Breath ‘awe’ upwards wind and ‘eee’ ‘downwards wind in the astral spine) and then sit still. What happens from there is the Will of Our Father.

I have had exactly the same practice for many many years. This enables me consciously to be aware of changes in mindfulness and awareness from day to day and rest in the Grace of Our Mother.

The emptiness is vast and I only recollect afterwards so write almost immediately.

The Light that appears from within is a regular occurrence and ‘blends’ with the emptiness when I AM, still and silent.

That is half the secret. To train your body, mind and heart to be very very still.

Be Still and know I AM.

That is how to know “I AM”

From the Source, I AM, all else comes.

It is not imagination.

Here is what happened.

Amoghasiddhi arose in the consciousness of this body energy and information.

Truly the body is a Temple. Trained carefully we awaken the internal winds and the fire dragons.

This body became a stone.

It was unexpected and incredible. The weight was the weight of all the worlds.

So grounded.

So anchored.

Stone of the Shiva and Shakti.

The standing stone (linga) surrounded by the ring stone (yoni).

From that stone arose the Third Dalai Lama.

And from The Third Dalai Lama arose Lama Tsongkhapa the founder of Tibetan Buddhism.

The message they brought was the symbolism of the Five Dhyani Buddhas.

Sitting, The Five were within this body, in a circle, chanting this…


(You will hear the Dalai Lama chanting it here for you)

This was the sound which filled the consciousness of this body.

This was the message they brought for you and me.

Anyone receiving initiation into the Highest Yoga Tantra systems honors the sacred pledges (samayas) connected with The Five Buddha Families.






These Five Buddhas are linked to

  • the Five Directions of the mandala – north, south, east, west and the center
  • the transformation of the Five Elements
  • the Five Skandhas – form, sensation, perception, mental formation, consciousness (and purifying and transcending these)
  • the Five Wisdoms
  •   the Five Enlightenments

The Sacred Pledges (samayas – of which there are 19 in all) are similar in intent to the Eagle Vow I included on the website.

In ancient times the 19 samayas included practicing certain rituals three times a day and three times at night. These included generating the mind of Refuge in the Three Jewels (the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha) and bringing vajra (divine masculine) and bell (divine feminine) energies together in harmony and so on. Now a liturgy or vow called Six Session Yoga (because it is done 6 times in a day) replaces this.

Their message was, whatever sacred tradition or path you follow, do this practice as a formal dedication and devotion to the Absolute and the liberation of All Beings as many times as you can each day and consciously honor your Light Families at least six times a day. Some days or nights go past where we do not bring their energy consciously to mind. By setting up a formal practice within Our Sacred Heart, these Light Beings are honored and the Clear Light of Being within you spreads for All the Worlds.

Love and soul blessings
