Going Deeper: The Longing for Liberation Observed

I’ve written a number of articles on the longing for liberation. (2) It’s a built-in, subtidal thirst which only reunion with God will extinguish or satisfy.

I’ve discovered something important about myself in regard to the longing and I’d like to share that discovery. Let me work up to it if you will.

We travel from God to God in a sacred arc which has a spiritual spiral to it.  (See 3) We’re driven forward by this below-awareness itch we can’t scratch, this desire for more, that isn’t satisfied until we reunite with God.

Hindus call it the longing for liberation. Other teachers have other names for it – “yearning for God,” “quest for knowledge and truth,” “impulse to be free,” etc.

I’ve just gotten in touch with the form the longing takes in me. And just naming it for you calls out a response from my being, a resonant “yes,” which confirms my suspicions.

The form mine takes is an impulse to go deeper. Continually deeper and deeper.

I just noticed the impulse a few minutes ago and, when I named it, “Go deeper,” it was as if a cavern opened up inside of me and my experience became more blissful and peaceful. (4)

I said to myself, “This is clearly my path, my direction.”

One teacher has called it “settling into being.”  Ajahn Sumedo tells us how to get there: “Let go, let go, let go.” (5)  Settling into beingness, settling into stillness, settling into silence. And then going deeper into that.

Going deeper into love. Going as deeply as I can. I hypothesize that there will be no end to love’s depth.

For another it might not be to go deeper. It might be to “go higher,” or “go inside.” Who knows? We’re all different and all paths lead to reunion with God, one way or another.

I’ve been asking myself over and over in the last week or so, “What do you want me to do?” And now I have the answer: Go deeper.

I feel as I imagine a man would who is donning his first scuba gear. I’m about to enter a new environment.


(1) “My powers of concentration have been insufficient to have me feel confident that I can focus on being unified and congruent in my life for an entire day. But I’ll start this day with that resolve.” (“Focusing on Being Unified in My Life,” 

(2) See “Ch. 7. The Longing for Liberation” in The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment at https://goldenageofgaia.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/Purpose-of-Life-is-Enlightenment.pdf

“[The] longing for liberation is the will to be free from the fetters forged by ignorance — beginning with the ego-sense and so on, down to the physical body itself — through the realization of one’s true nature.” (Shankara in Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher lsherwood, Shankara’s Crest-Jewel of Discrimination. Hollywood: Vedanta Press, 1975; c1947, 36.)

“All things long for [God]. The intelligent and rational long for it by way of the stirrings of being alive and in whatever fashion befits their condition.” (Pseudo-Dionysius in Cohn Luibheid, trans., Pseudo-Dionysus, His Complete Works. New York and Mahwah: Paulist Press, 1989, 54.)

“Your quest for knowledge and the truth can never really be satisfied until you reach the ultimate – The Source of All That Is.” (SaLuSa, Feb. 23, 2009.)

“The impulse to be free is an evolutionary spark within consciousness which originates beyond the ego. It is an impulse toward the divine, unity, and wholeness. It is an impulse originating from the Truth itself. This impulse to evolve is often co-opted by the ego, which then creates the illusion of the spiritual seeker. This impulse, which is inherently innocent, is something, in and of itself, has nothing to do with any seeking to attain. It is only when the ego co-opts the impulse and then tries to attain something that the seeker is born. This impulse, this spark of evolution, becomes almost instantly corrupted by a wanting which gives birth to the seeker.” (Adyashanti, The Impact of Awakening. Los Gatos: Open Gate Publishing, 2000, 3.)

What this says to me is that I will never be completely healed, completely restored, in all ways, until I’m One with God again.

(3) See “Sacred arc and spiritual spiral” in “Ch. 2 Is There a Plan to Life?” in The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment, ibid.

Briefly, the sacred arc is obvious enough. From God we came and to God we return. The spiral, which makes the arc look like industrial cable, is that way because we return to the same karmic lessons lifetime after lifetime until we learn them. Thus, when depicted, it looks like returning to the same place over and over again, making of the arc a spiral.

(4) Admittedly I’ve known I have a preference for the metaphor of deeper rather than the metaphor of higher. But never have I had a stronger inner response/confirmation of the importance to me of the resolve to “go deeper.”

(5) “I’m making it very simple for you, to save you from getting caught in incredible amounts  of suffering. There’s nothing more sorrowful than having to attend International Buddhist Conferences!

“Some of you might have the desire to become the Buddha of the age, Maitreya, radiating love throughout the world. Just be an earthworm who knows only two words – ‘let go, let go, let go.’” (Ajahn Sumedho, Cittaviveka. Teachings from the Silent Mind. (Hemel Hempstead: Amaravati Publications, 1992; c1984, 44.)

Before I give the update on the 34th Annual World Congress on Illumination, I want to share with you a powerful opportunity that is being presented to each of us NOW. We are still benefiting from the awesome Light we were blessed with during the Triple Eclipse Series which was brought to fruition on July 4, 2020. According to the Company of Heaven, this influx of Light was able to assist the I AM Presence of every person to lift him or her into the highest frequencies of the Enlightened Consciousness of Oneness that Cosmic Law would allow. Now, each of us is in a position to assist in the process of dismantling and purging the residue of the obsolete and self-obsessed patterns that have perpetuated the erroneous belief in separation and duality for aeons of time. These destructive beliefs have perpetuated the “us against them” consciousness which is responsible for the vast majority of Humanity’s pain and suffering.

Amazingly, but not by chance, on July 3rd the largest Comet that has entered our space in decades passed closest to the Sun on its journey toward the Earth. I know that scientists usually think of Comets as just dirty snowballs, but that is not true. Every particle and wave of Life in the whole of creation has a degree of intelligence and a purpose and reason for being. Literally nothing is happening by accident or happenstance. The Company of Heaven has told us many times that the pathways of Comets and Meteors are Divinely guided.  When they enter a Solar System they “shake the ethers” and break down the matrixes of the crystallized patterns that have negatively influenced Humanity’s behavior. Once the matrixes of these destructive patterns are shattered, they are much easier to Transmute back into Light through the use of the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Forgiveness.

This Comet is named NEOWISE. It will be clearly visible on July 15th and 16th and will pass closest to the Earth on July 23rd. Its trademark is a Split Tail. The next time this Messenger from On High will pass by Mother Earth to assist with her evolutionary process is 8786. I don’t think any of us will be here to witness that return, so let’s take advantage of this opportunity now. Throughout the rest July, if we will all invoke the Violet Flame of God’s Infinite Forgiveness and blaze it in, through and around every particle and wave of Life on Mother Earth and throughout her atmosphere we will assist Humanity, Mother Earth and the Elemental Kingdom beyond measure.

Update for the 34th Annual World Congress on Illumination

I have been holding you in my Heart and Prayers during this amazing time. I hope you are safe and filled with Gratitude for the wondrous Light that is now embracing Beloved Mother Earth and ALL Life evolving upon her. This is an experience for which we have been preparing for Lifetimes. According to the Company of Heaven, we are each fulfilling our unique facet of this unprecedented event perfectly. Congratulations!

We at Era of Peace have been holding the sacred space for God’s Will and Divine Order as we surrender to the Immaculate Concept of whatever the Divine Plan is for this Cosmic Moment. As you know, Humanity is cocreating the unfoldment of this phase of our Ascension process, so not even the Company of Heaven knew exactly how the Divine Mission for the 34th WCI in Santa Fe, New Mexico, October 17-22, 2020 would be accomplished logistically.

It is now clear that the 34th WCI will be a very different type of event this year. We have communicated with the Eldorado Hotel and Spa and we have all determined that it will not be possible for us to gather safely as we usually do. Consequently, we have postponed our gathering in Santa Fe, New Mexico at the Eldorado Hotel and Spa until October 15-20, 2022. This will be the 36th Annual World Congress on Illumination.

The 35th Annual World Congress on Illumination will be held in Tucson, Arizona at Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, August 14-19, 2021.

Of course, we are very disappointed that we will not be meeting physically with everybody in October, but the facet of the Divine Plan we are ALL being asked to empower energetically in 2020 is monumental. I will be sending out a Newsletter with the specifics as the Company of Heaven reveals them to us. So far, what we know is that this will be truly a global activity of Light involving the conscious participation of everyone who has the Heart Call to add their magnificent Light to the Planetary Reboot that the masses of Humanity have been preparing to initiate for the past seven months.

We at Era of Peace have been guided to cocreate a Live Virtual Online event that will allow people around the World to consciously join Hearts during this facet of the Divine Plan. Every day from October 17-22, 2020, we will create a Live two-hour Virtual Event that will be offered globally for FREE on YouTube and many other social media platforms. During that time, we will join with the Company of Heaven and I will share with everyone what they tell us has been accomplished to facilitate the Planetary Reboot thus far. I will then share what the Beings of Light reveal is the next step of our Divine Mission for that day. We will then have a guided meditation that will empower everyone to focus our attention on cocreating that step of the Planetary Reboot God Victoriously.

Please hold the sacred space in your Heart of Hearts for the 34th World Congress on Illumination.

KNOW that all is in Divine Order.

God Bless You,

Patricia Cota-Robles

Greetings to my beloved Morning Message family

July 16, 2020

My Personal Message

Feeling very blessed indeed. I am recovering easily and so grateful to be alive. Since I have been home the seriousness of what happened has really shaken me. I am so grateful for the professionals who tended for my care and well being. The whole time I was in the hospital I was also aware that there were beautiful beings in my room. This was such a comfort, especially since I could have no visitors.Our weather is warm and sunny. Most days however, when it gets too hot in San Jose, that hot weather pulls in the fog which will completely cover our valley with a cool damp drizzle. If we are lucky it burns off by noon or 1:00PM. Those days you just wear a sweater. The redwoods love that light wet drizzle.

Like most of you I have been so aware of all the celestial energies coming on the planet from the movement of our planets, especially the full moons and the eclipse. This energy has certainly been strong and powerful. On several occasions I have just lain awake most all night.
It is nice to have tools to use – breath work, chants and visualizations, even using the energy to heal my body at another level.

We are witnessing incredible chaos and disturbances stemming from the protests. Our beloved planet and humanity itself is in the midst of a huge awakening. We are all a part of this unfolding. It is so important that we stay in our center of calm and focus on the upliftment of consciousness. Some days it is easier than others. Each and every one of us is facing serious challenges. It is so important that we remember that we are powerful and are here to transform this negative and misqualified energy.

Since nothing is the same, nothing is solid, dependable or stable. A huge cleansing is taking place and this process is causing many to feel unbalanced, fearful, lost, depressed, confused and angry.  Realize that distorted beliefs and the limitations of the old paradigms are dissolving.

May we continue to hold the vision, may we continue to anchor a new reality that honors everyone. May we continue to send our love and prayers for all those who are battling this virus, as well as all those who are required to be on the front lines of service. Prayers to those who have lost a loved one, may they find comfort. I also have had to process the loss of a beloved.

Now, while we are all at home, might be the perfect time for you to have a reading from the ‘team.’ They are excellent at supporting individuals in clearing old repressed childhood patterns and emotions. We all experience personal limiting patterns or suppressed emotions from abuse and hurtful emotions. Now is the time to clear those for yourself and expand your level of consciousness.

I am still offering sessions with the ‘team’ and serving my beloved Morning Messages community. I am always thrilled and ever so grateful for this opportunity to serve. I am still doing a session or two a day which has been a wonderful connection with this community. It is made easy since people can use an internet connection for the session – no costly phone calls.

If you are ready to experience the freedom this provides, please call and schedule an appointment with the ‘team.’ Their guidance and generous support are so valuable. They offer tools of empowerment as you move through the changes that are happening in your life. It is a great way to expand with gentle and powerful support.

I am grateful and deeply touched by those who gift bluesky donations. I love to receive your emails and your kind words about this work. Thank you! You know who you are. It is so important that we own and acknowledge that we are a powerful community of conscious beings truly supporting the upliftment of our planet. We are making a difference. Together we will continue to envision a reality that is life sustaining for all.

I offer you blessings of grace and delightful joy. Peggy

Ps: Jose Arguelles initiated an event in 1987. People around the world convened, meditated, danced, and tuned in to the earth, each other and the cosmos during what was to become the first-ever global coherence and contact event, the Harmonic Convergence. Thirty-three years ago I was at the local beach with a group of close friends to honor this event. We were not sure what this was about, however it felt very significant. I set up my portable pyramid and arranged my crystals. We built a big fire and stayed up all night meditating, chanting, praying and dancing in the sand. This was certainly a benchmark in the awakening of consciousness and our understanding of our connection with the stars and our cosmic family. August 16-17 is the anniversary. I invite you to find ways to celebrate this portal.

Message from the ‘Team’
Be the Portal for Change
Peggy Black and the ‘team’

We are here to support and encourage you to express your true magnificence during these turbulent times and global challenges. We know that you are weary of all that is occurring regarding the protests and the virus. The energy that is coming forth is not going to ease any time soon.We invite you to be diligent concerning any level of despair and to not lose hope for a shift. It is most important that you continue to maintain your personal balance. You are truly living in remarkable times as your planet moves through these shifts and this period of intense purification and transformation.

During the chaos and the confusion, during the upheaval and violence, it is most important that you anchor the truth of a social balance and the honoring of all living things. Every system and structure is being highlighted in its dysfunction to humanity and is calling forth the shift for the well-being and balance for all.

What you are experiencing is unlike anything that has been offered on this planet. Your planet is in the throes of a great shift in consciousness and the evaluation of humanity. The systems that have been created and empowered have not been for the good for all. What you are witnessing with the global protests is the imbalance of energy that has been building within humanity for years. What you are witnessing and experiencing with the global shutdown is how vulnerable your systems really are. This shutdown is giving each person the opportunity to review their own beliefs and attitudes concerning what is happening.

Many are becoming aware of emotions that they did not realize they had, negative emotions and beliefs that have been suppressed and repressed.  In the universe, Earth is a school for mastering how to manipulate energy. It is known as an excellent yet difficult school because it offers the best lessons in emotions and working with the vibrations of energy that emotions offer to the collective. Realize that only the best and bravest multidimensional beings sign up for this assignment.

As multidimensional beings you have known other realities where kindness, joy, gratitude, appreciation and pleasure were the main focus and the vibrations offered. Once you signed up for your assignment here on earth you discovered the other spectrum of emotions anger, sadness, discouragement, hopelessness, fear, frustration, bitterness, and guilt. Unfortunately these emotions can be addictive. Many people find anger addictive because it makes their egos feel righteous, justified or victimized. The physical body becomes addicted to the chemical reactions that anger, fear or sadness create.

These are low frequency yet very strong vibrations. What you are invited to understand is that all vibrational emotions are contagious. If you are energetically harboring any of these negative emotional energies in your body, you will get triggered when another human expresses that emotion. These hidden emotions are repressed or suppressed in the shadow aspect of your consciousness. Even as you are going through difficult times, realize that those difficult times invite transformation.

You are here on this earth at the time to contribute, to help transform the consciousness and connect with other like minded beings. Realize this is a game, it is a hologame. You are practicing the ability to create. You’re practicing how your vibrational offerings create the reality that you are experiencing. Be the portal for change you are meant to be.

What you think, feel or express creates vibrations that will manifest. You are beginning to understand this truth. Now add to that awareness the multitude of other conscious beings and you have what collective consciousness is creating.

Collective consciousness is being triggered by the vibrations and energy offered by the movement of your planets. There is a bright light shining on all that has been hidden and suppressed.  The energy is unpredictable and volatile which is causing anxiety, irritably, distress and unease. Be mindful when you notice that these energies and emotions are running through your mind and body. Pause, take a deep breath, walk in nature, move your body and shift what is occurring. Focus on what nurtures you and those around you.

It is a time when spiritual practice together with physical activity will support your well being.  Pay attention to the subtle gifts that are coming forth. Notice your intuition increasing, the opening of your heart portal allowing more love to flow forth to humanity, notice your compassion expanding. Pay attention as more and more of these abilities are revealed.

If you could view your planet and these activities from our perspective, you would see that the current shift and awakening that is occurring is bringing humanity to another level of being. You are shifting from the old dense 3D to a higher frequency and dimension. The entire universe is watching just how this will play out. Since this is a free will planet the outcome will depend on just how the collective consciousness embraces this opportunity to shift and change what is not working for the good of all.

This is when and where you come in, because as you clear and transform your own limited beliefs and all misqualified emotions, you are doing this for the whole. When you welcome the balance of your own masculine and feminine energies, anchoring that balance into the collective, you are doing masterful work.

This work does not need to be difficult or hard. However this work is personal. You cannot project your short comings and negative judgments onto others and expect change to manifest. You came here to be a part of this great change. There are many non physical divine beings that would love to be a part of this planetary shift. However it is you who has the golden ticket. You are here and you came with incredible gifts, knowledge, insights, intelligence and other amazing abilities.

Begin to honor who you are and what you can offer during these turbulent times. Recognize that you are a transformer of dense negative energies. Own the ability to stay balanced in the midst of this chaos.  be the loving vibration for others to entrain with. Realize that your imagination is one of your most powerful tools to use in the dimension. So begin to envision a better future for humankind. See a future in which everyone is honored and respected. See a future in which there is harmony and communication between those of different cultures and beliefs. Call forth a reality that is life sustaining for all. Be the inviter, and invite other non-physical beings to join you in this effort to bring peace and love to this planet.

In these unprecedented times and paradigm shifts, you can anchor and re-imagine your planet’s place in the universe. This shift and change has been coming forth for eons. Know that you have the support of the entire universe. This planet and humanity have the opportunity to shift to a higher dimension and be welcomed into the galactic family.

We are here to remind you of who you are and to also remind you that you are the open door and portal for change. Call on us and other divine beings to support you in your work. the ‘team’
