Good Work – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Good Work

I’m observing myself as I do my writing and I notice that I have this concept of “good work.”‘

“Good work” is work I feel love, bliss, or joy in doing. Or peace or tranquillity. Good work elevates.

“Undesirable work” is work I feel irritation, anger, or resistance in doing. This kind of work depresses. I should probably let this kind of work slip off the table.

The exact point at which I saw that I had this notion of “good work” was when I was doing my monthly budget.

I love doing my monthly budget. I love being organized. Here I was, updating my budget, merrily working away.

Hit the pause button.

If you knew me, you’d know I have this story that I hate math. (1)

But my story doesn’t fit the reality.

In reality I very much enjoy adding up the columns of figures and checking it with my bank records. I feel elevated doing it, happily working my way through things and reconciling it all. I just won’t admit it to myself.

So doing my budget falls unexpectedly into this category that I’ve called “good work.”  Acknowledging it as such now removes the blinders that I’ve had on: The truth has set me free.

Anything I think of that can benefit others I think of as “good work” as well. Large or small.  I feel love in the doing of it.

Being on the awareness path is for me a great blessing because the act of awareness causes a condition to lift. So I both get to study a field that supremely interests me and heal myself of all the trauma we accumulate in the process. What’s not to like?

The ultimate act of self-awareness – and its goal – is to be aware of the Self/All Self.

This lifetime I don’t get to be monkish or philosophical. This is a hands-on, karma-yoga lifetime of service. To the monk in me, “service” translates as “work.”

I mean the phrase, “good work,” in the same way the Buddha meant “right action.”  There are universal laws and behavior that aligns with them is right action; in the same vein, work that aligns with universal law and the divine qualities is good work.

Added to the evidence of awareness is the knowledge of the masters. Jesus’s observation that the truth shall set you free is a cornerstone of awareness practice. (2)

The truth does set us free. The follower of the awareness path endeavors to remain in the present moment, which it turns out is also the place of experienced truth. They aim for personal transparency, consistent with duty or dharma, and revel in receiving mirroring and feedback.

Self-awareness is the most fascinating of fields of study for me and the most rewarding. (2) Any time I spend in it I regard as “good work.”

Footnotes

(1) Michael says that I was a mathematical philosopher in another lifetime and, after it, I begged him never to ask me to be a mathematician again.

(2) Tell the truth and it’ll set us free from the condition.

We can use that knowledge in the following way.

We can measure our progress in freeing ourselves from an upset.  Are we feeling freer, lighter, happier? Then we know the truth is being expressed.

Are we feeling denser, darker, and more irritable? Then we know we’re moving farther and farther away from the truth.  Time to turn around and go another way.

(1) I spent three months in a growth-movement program that featured encounter groups and different therapeutic workshops, at Cold Mountain Institute in … 1975-6? After that, est, rebirthing, Zen, enlightenment intensives, etc. The thing that united all of them was awareness.

Claiming Our Divine Authority: What Will It Take? – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow

Claiming Our Divine Authority: What Will It Take? -Part 2/2

Concluded from Part 1, yesterday.)

I also see barriers to the resistance falling away. Here’s one. I think I have to say to someone who challenges me on authority: “I speak on my own divine authority.”

No, I don’t. “I speak on my own authority.”

To say “on my divine authority” is to invite controversy. Why go that route?

I know. What does it matter whether the other person does or not? Or believes that I do or not? It doesn’t affect my knowledge.

I see barriers coming up right and left. Voices saying: “But I want others to know.” No, you don’t. You just want to feel like a hero. They each have their own path. Let your concern go.

Oh, yes, my precious knowledge.  I have to be well discerned. I have to read only the best.

I once read only enlightened authors for ten years – after my 1987 vision – to find words to put to it. Perhaps I should go back to that.

I will when I retire.

Right now the agenda is the Ascension of Gaia and all her inhabitants. Therefore, back to uncovering my divine authority.

All the divine states simply are. They don’t come with a manual.

We’re given intuition and guidance to find the key to unlock the door.

The door has to be unlocked by our own efforts (1/1,000) combined with the Mother’s Grace (999/1,000). (1)  As I discuss in the footnote, the Mother’s Grace far outweighs my small efforts.

But nothing is straightforward where souls are concerned. There are many things that have to be factored in to this equation. I am in service to the Mother as a communicator: That means that my experiences will be molded and even truncated if “going too far” jeopardizes my mission.

It also means, I believe, that I’m given more experiences than the average person because they know I’ll write about them.

So here I am digging away at the debris to discover what my divine authority is, knowing that, when I discover it, it’ll be mostly because of the Mother’s Grace.

Later….

Here’s a clue. Contemplating my divine authority, I’ve ended up in a state of higher-dimensional love. This aligns with my experience of all the other divine states; I end up in the experience of love.

Is this what is meant by saying that love takes in all the divine qualities?

Footnotes

(1) In other words, her input is vastly more than ours.

Note that you can see in my own case that the Mother plans and monitors enlightenment events and takes an active role in them.

I experienced a full-blown, 4th-chakra heart opening, but did not experience the fulness of the 4th-chakra sight of the Self. The Mother later acknowledged truncating the latter as Archangel Michael did as well.

Steve: The experience at Xenia, Mother, was that truncated?

Divine Mother: Slightly, yes.

Steve: I had the thought [it was]. … The Light I saw should have been brighter than a thousand suns. The fact that it wasn’t suggests to me that the experience was truncated.  …

DM: It was not as brilliant as possible, let us put it that way.

Steve: Alright… And again, the reason is to keep me in sync with my readers?

DM: It is to keep you in sync with your readers. (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.)

Michael on truncating in general:

Archangel Michael: If you were completely involved in your full awakening, you in very great likelihood would not be forming a platform with me.  You would be off somewhere in an ashram meditating.

So that is what we have meant.  Ground yourself.  Be human and love the experience of being in form.  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, May 6, 2013.)

If I had the full experience of any of these states, I’d most probably be off in the Himalayas finishing the job.

The upshot of these experiences is that the active involvement of the Mother and the Archangels in my own spiritual unfoldment rests with me as a proven fact.

This then becomes part of my knowledge base, which contributes a sense of certainty to me about the nature of the life that I encounter every day, inside and out.

Moreover, getting clear about it as I am here removes another barrier to the realization of what my divine authority is.
