The I of Awareness – Steve Beckow

Divine Love – Indian Artist Dhananjay Mukherjee

The I of Awareness

Several hypotheses and postulates are becoming clearer to me:

(1) Thoughts cause feelings.

(2) Feelings are the prime motivator of human behavior.

(2) Each of us has freewill, which the higher dimensionals respect.

(3) Each of us is 100% responsible for our actions.

(4) That means …

Well, that’s what I wanted to look into today. What are the implications of being 100% responsible for my actions?

It suggests that I need to play a more active role in choosing the mood I want to be in.

I’m not sure if I’m the last person on Earth who knows this or whether what I’m saying is unabashedly new. But I’ve stumbled on the fact that the “I of awareness” plays no role in my everyday life.

My everyday life goes on without any encouragement from me, any guidance, any love. I am not playing an active supporting role in my own life.

And I want to change that. I want to play an important, supporting role in my own life from now on. I want to encourage myself. I want to be my own cheerleader. I want to reparent myself, encourage myself, acknowledge my progress and look at my detours.  I want to play an active role in my own life.

That part of me that feels this way I’m going to call, after Len Satov, the Watcher, the “I/eye of awareness.” It’s the one who always remains as the “I,” no matter what happens outside.

It wants to come out of the shadows and participate.

It’s no accident that this resolve arises a day after writing:

“I’m not a house divided against itself any longer. Given that till age 58 I was, (1) all discoveries in this area are like recovered ground on the road to wholeness.” (1)

It’s I that Needs to be Universal, Not Love – Steve Beckow

It’s I that Needs to be Universal, Not Love

A great healing has taken place and I can only describe it. It used to be that, if I felt happy, one side of me would get nervous. Dad would swat me if I got too happy.

So there were two sides of me: the happy side and the nervous-at-being-happy side.

Nowadays the wounded child in me is happy being happy and the other side of me is just plain happy anyways.

So, when I feel happy, I feel genuinely, wholly, and indisputably happy.

I’m not a house divided against itself any longer. Given that till age 58 I was, (1) all discoveries in this area are like gladly-recovered ground on the road to wholeness.

***

Now I’ve transitioned from happiness to transformative love. Thoughts of the beloved brought it on.

I keep thinking of new metaphors to describe this kind of love.

I compare ordinary love, no matter how refined, to my 1959 radio, which was primitive by our standards.

Now think of the first time you went into a home that had a $2500 home audio set, including a radio that blew you away for fidelity. I compare that to transformative love.

Or take your $150 TV and compare it to the latest 4G television that makes a jewel appear lustrous. I was moved watching a 4K TV for the first time last weekend. The gulf between the two is similar to the gulf between regular and transformative love.

***

But as to describing love itself? I can’t find words to do it justice. I wouldn’t even try.

I look and look and look; I feel and feel and feel; and I cannot come up with a single word to describe this kind of love in and of itself.

And yet I can say that my experience of it is delightful. My experience of it is as of something that satisfies every sense, every longing, every desire I’ve ever had. No wonder Saul calls it the answer to every problem. It fulfills every desire.

Love leaves no one out and I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out from the experience of it. The world will work for everyone when we all experience this kind of love.

One taste of it and one would know instantly what I’m talking about. Without a taste of it, it can sound as if I’m talking in mysteries and riddles.

Love itself is universal. It can be no other way. How would it be love if it excluded someone?

Everyone of this religion is loved and should come over here and everyone of that religion is not loved and can go to hell: How is that love?

Finally, to say “make your love be universal” is a contradiction in terms. Love is already universal. If I’m partial, loving some and hating others, transformative love won’t visit me. It’s I that needs to be universal, not love.

(1) I was dissociated till age 58, at which time, in a blazing heat, I fused back together again, thanks to my brother’s skillful therapeutic work with me.

Before then, I was never confident of the ground beneath my feet. I was always projecting a need for … love, I think. I was not whole. I was fragmented, uncertain.

I Am at Work – Steve Beckow

~*~

I Am at Work

What it means to master every thought and feeling, which the Arcturians have said is a requirement of wayshower/leaders, (1) is as much in need of looking at as the actual process of mastering.

It’s becoming a preoccupation with me.

Now is the time. If it’s the calm before the storm, then let me use it to its fullest advantage.

I need to focus on the theme of my own behavior. I need to up my standards around people as an approach to fulfilling the Arcturians’ assignment. (2)

I’m already beginning to see the role of feelings in my life in deciding what my actions will be. It’s fascinating watching how I respond to them.

Today, Sunday, I spent a total of between two and three hours at the retail store for Telus, my cellphone carrier. It was a slow Sunday so I had the help of everyone on duty, who were training a new person – who was redoing my bill.

I bought a new cellphone the day before and was overcome with sticker shock later. I needed to bring the cost down somehow and had spent an hour on the phone with an agent finding a way to do it. Now I needed the actual sales staff to agree and enact the solution.

Even though everything looked good going in, I was still stressed out of my skull going into the store and reminding myself that I’d put worry aside just the other day. (Nothing does it for me like financial stress.)

Ordinarily I’d be telling myself that I need to make the re-visit to the store successful; therefore, I needed to have a strategy and a sob story.

And just as ordinarily I’d try to push salespeople around with my irritation. I’d have a commanding tone walking in the door and I wouldn’t relent until I got what I wanted. Usually people would be staring daggers at me by the time I rode out of town.

The trainee kept getting the complicated bill wrong, which is what dragged it out an extra hour or two. I could have played my impatience card.

Meanwhile I watched travel documentaries on an absolutely incredible 4K TV, mesmerized. I even had lunch there. I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Dinner and a movie.

And they ended up taking 20 percent off my bill, which no one foresaw starting out.  Thank you, Mother.

When I left, we were like old friends. Much of that was due to them but the part due to me was such a departure for me.

I paid a great deal of attention to my behavior.  I saw clearly how I ordinarily behave.

Whatever my feeling is triggers off a response pattern. Getting irritated, standing on my rights as a customer, being sarcastic, playing a victim – all these responses came up. When they did, I just stood aside from them, like a matador, and let them pass.

I refrained from following my conditioned impulses or being automatically triggered by my feelings. I was mastering every thought and feeling.

The lesson for me in all this is that (1) I got what I wanted (2) and more (3) without creating enemies and (4) I did it by being friendly and non-judgemental.  People actually did respond to friendliness and responded better than in previous interactions.

I’m digging in the dirt here. Real grassroots. What’s coming down the pike is going to require me to grow up in every area of my life and I know it.

I am at work.

Keep in mind that all our thoughts and feelings are perceptible to higher-dimensional beings and the need to master them becomes instantly understandable.

(2) I should mention that I have a history with Arcturus, according to them and Michael.

Life is Everywhere – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow

Life is Everywhere – Part 2/2

(Concluded from Part 1, yesterday)

Therefore extraterrestrials exist, life is everywhere in the multiverse, and the human form or Adam Kadmon template is common.

I’d like to turn now to the more specific question of who is here and why.

SaLuSa explained to us in 2009 that humanity “could not live forever in the illusion of being at the centre of the Universe.”

“With the knowledge of other life forms that have also existed within your solar system and in fact still do, it is time to accept that they have accompanied you for thousands upon thousands of years. They have a place in your lives and your evolution, and are every bit a part of the grand experiment of duality as you are.” (1)

How is it that we don’t remember their place in our lives? SaLuSa answers: “You accepted the veils that were drawn across your eyes as you dropped deeper into the lower vibrations. Now you are emerging once again, and being reminded of your true selves and your history upon Earth.” (2)

What is the nature of their societies when compared with our own?

The off-planet races, SaLuSa tells us, “have never lost their level of high consciousness and are fully aware of your history together.” (3) They are therefore higher dimensional than we are.

Adamu observed that our society is not unity conscious while other societies gathered here are. He says:

“We, the Pleiadian culture are, for the most part, of unity consciousness. That means we see all other beings as brothers or, more correctly, as another manifestation of a greater Self. So we say, no matter who you are, you are I and I am you.” (4)

Perhaps they are stepping stones: first, seeing all others as our sisters and brothers and, second, as another manifestation of a greater Self.

“Some cultures we see in a state of pain. Sometimes they are so confused and traumatized that they attack and attempt to destroy themselves. Such as has often happened on your planet and continues to happen in many parts.” (5)

How many attempts have we seen to start World War III? If able to do so, the deep state would have blown the world up when sufficiently threatened – something our star family, gathered here to help us, will not allow.

“Sometimes the ‘self’ they attack is another space race as has happened throughout galactic history. Our galaxy is littered with war zones, old and new. There are many races here that still do not know their oneness with all. And such races are, I’m afraid, prone to aggression.

“And that is how I would characterize the races and the cultures: to simply divide them into Unity Conscious and Non-Unity Conscious races.” (6)

He then relates this to Service to Other and Service to Self.

“You might have heard, we often speak in terms of Service to Other and Service to Self mindsets. Well, these things correlate very well because if you are of Unity Consciousness then you cannot but have a Service to Other mindset. Can you see that?

“So Unity Conscious races will always try to do the very best thing they can to the benefit of All, including you. Non-Unity Conscious ones will try to do the best for themselves no matter what that does to you.

“There are some races that have had dealings with your planet that are of the Non-unity Conscious mindset. They have caused some damage to your view of your star brothers. But that is being turned to the good now. Soon all shall see.”  (7)

So the galactics themselves are helping us to achieve unity consciousnsess and ascend.

SaLuSa reminds us of another factor: “The higher vibrations beaming to you are raising your levels of consciousness.” (8) And I’m led to believe that there are many other factors and efforts present to make our Ascension a success.

Finally, I’d like to look at one of the confederations of space folks here to help us: the Galactic Federation of Light.

SaLuSa says that the GFL may have been the vehicle by which we as the first inhabitants of Earth were first transplanted here. He says:

“You will find that Galactic Federation members are no strangers to your early evolution, and in fact have had more than a hand in it. There is more of a connection between us than you might imagine, and we have had a part to play in your genetic engineering resulting in what you are today. When you get to see the various types of Beings in our Federation, you will marvel at how many have a close resemblance to how you look now.” (9)

He informs us that they collaborate with other races outside the GFL.

“You will find that many different types of Beings from other civilizations work side by side for the Galactic Federation of Light. We enjoy the knowledge and differences that other Extraterrestrials bring with them that we can all share. Sharing is the operative word that expresses everything that we do, and it is done for the good of all.” (10)

He describes their evolutionary standing.

“The Galactic Federation is comprised of civilisations of ascended Beings carrying the status of Masters. They are spiritually evolved and their energy is of Love and Light, with the intent of spreading it far and wide.” (11)

Notice: They live in a higher dimension (spiritually evolved) and their energy is Love and Light.  When all of us live in a higher dimension, we too will be in a permanent state of love and bliss. That is to say, when we ascend, his description will fit us as well.  Then, if not before, the world will work for everyone. (13)

Who does the GFL work for and why?

“We act on the Divine orders that direct our activities and we are committed to helping civilisations such as yours. You can understand your position at this time and know that you are on the verge of a momentous leap in your evolution. We are here to travel with you, and even beyond as you make your way through the next level of dimensions.

“Nothing will be allowed to interfere with your progress, and it is our responsibility to ensure you safely achieve Ascension.” (12)

Similar things could be said by or about the Ashtar Command, the Unified Forces of the Outer Galaxies, and other space forces and commands.

Thus, there is life everywhere in the universe. Around our planet, at the present time, are members of our space family, including races that seeded Earth in the first place, here to help us emerge from the control of the cabal and ascend to a dimension where love and bliss ensure that the world works for everyone.

Life is Everywhere – Part 1/2

Alleged depiction of Cdr. Hatonn

Since so many people are awakening to the fact of the existence of life elsewhere in the universe, I’d like to review some of the basics of what we think of as “Extraterrestrial Disclosure.”

Adamu the Pleiadian assures us that life exists not just on a few planets, but everywhere in the universe.

“You on Earth peer out to the stars and ponder “is there life out there?” I tell you there is nothing BUT life out there! You are in for a wonderful surprise very shortly. You are about to be introduced to your galactic family. …

“As my consciousness expands so I encounter more and more life.” (1)

Our universe, Mike Quinsey’s source tells us, “is teeming with life at levels mostly in advance of your own.”  (2)

Consequently, SaLuSa of Sirius explains, “there will never be a time when you will be able to claim to have seen it all, because the Creator is thinking new creations into being all of the time.” (3)

Moreover the life in the cosmos is, he continues, “not just in the dimensions that are open to your physical eyes. ”

“There are dimensions beyond your reckoning, and still life is present in abundance. It would be difficult to explain such vastness as an accidental occurrence, when it is clear that a mighty intelligence must exist that embraces all that exists.” (4)

Given that life is everywhere, Ker-on of Venus asks, “what could be more natural than contact being made with you?” (5)

The problem we’ve faced is that our governments have hid the existence of our star family from us. They block the knowledge of them. For example, Ker-on says: “Evidence of life upon your Moon and Mars has been found, although your Governments try to hide that information from you.” (6)

SaLuSa also discusses Mars:

“The [Hubble] telescope and the roving camera on Mars have beamed back pictures of incontrovertible ‘intelligent life’ that your government does not want you to know about. You had heard that the roving camera on Mars briefly had lost contact with receivers on Earth but you gave it little thought other than a fleeting: I wonder what it picked up that we’re not supposed to see. It had indeed done that!” (7)

Adamu informs us that everything is alive:

“In time you will meet more and more and more life-forms from all over the galaxy. And then you’ll begin to gain the awareness that EVERYTHING in the galaxy is actually a life-form. Your planet, the stars… all of it is actually alive. The galaxy is alive. And wherever you go you find life. You reside in one density. So you think that your solar system is almost sterile but for the life on your planet. If you could see as we do you’d know that there is much life in your solar system.

“Truly. And your own planet? You think you are the only so-called intelligent life form? You are not. Firstly because you vastly underestimate the other life forms you are aware of and secondly because your planet has much more going on in the other dimensions than you are aware of.” (8)

What will they look like? Are they all little grey men with big eyes? Or reptiles?

Most extraterrestrials are – and most we see will be – human in appearance, like us, SaLuSa tells us. He suggests that “Beings like us are very similar to you.” (9)

“I am SaLuSa of Sirius, and along with the Pleiadians and Venusians we are very much like you in appearance. After all, you are genetically linked with us and we have more in common than you might imagine. Many of you are aware of other humanoid forms, and these are simply variations that are more suited to the different planetary conditions.” (10)

Archangel Michael reveals that the Adam Kadmon template – or human form – designed by the Divine Mother, is the most common form throughout the multiverse.

Archangel Michael: There are many humanoids. Well, you will see as you encounter your star brothers and sisters, your family, that the humanoid form is the largest percentage of forms throughout the multiverse.

Steve Beckow:  Again, Adam Kadmon template?

AAM: Yes.

SB:  Why is that preferred, Lord?

AAM: It was a design that could incorporate a magnitude of light that would resemble and allow beings, who were in that form, to shift back to their angelic form very easily.

SB:  And who designed it?

AAM: The Mother.  She is the ultimate architect, you know. (11)

And yet other forms exist as well, as SaLuSa explains:  “There are intelligent life forms beyond your present imagination, and some are entirely different to what you have been used to so far.” (12) But they’re being kept away from Earth so as not to startle us or send us into fear.

Whatever form the being appears in is right for its conditions, Atmos of Sirius tells us:

“The Universe abounds with life in all types of manifestation, and regardless of which form it represents, it is correct for the conditions in which it lives.” (13)

“Outer appearances will not concern you,” SaLuSa predicts, “as in the future you will recognize all souls through their energy signature which will be similar to your own.” (14)

(Concluded in Part 2, tomorrow.)

Divine Mother: In the Face of Disinformation, Stay in Your Heart – Steve Beckow

Divine Mother: In the Face of Disinformation, Stay in Your Heart

I had the opportunity to talk with the Divine Mother (1) through Linda Dillon on Oct. 26, 2018.

I’m posting a few extracts from that reading.

In this extract, she discusses the tremendous amount of disinformation that is circulating on the Reval and how we should respond to it.


Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.


Divine Mother: No, [the Reval] is not simply about money; that is but a vehicle.

It is about the rearrangement of the entire planet and not in ways that result in mayhem or chaos or contrast, or conflict, but in ways that are of bringing forth the bounty for all. …

Steve Beckow: You realize of course, as you live in our hearts, you know that we are all very tired. Tired of waiting and tired of springing forward when somebody says, “It’s going to be tomorrow” or “the next day” and it doesn’t happen.

DM: But what you are doing and how I would guide you is to truly, deeply, profoundly and in a sense that you would translate as permanently, anchor in your heart. Stay within your heart. And when somebody says, “Oh, it’s today” “Oh, it’s Thursday” “Oh, it’s Friday” “Oh, it’s 10 o’clock on Sunday,” do not jump forward. Stand back. Be the observer.

Do not get caught in the frantic melee that this has become. Because what is occurring with all this disinformation is in fact a distraction. And the result of this, my beloved children (and I speak to all of you in this regard), what it is doing is it is making you more tired. It is exhausting you further. It is disheartening you further.

So stay in your heart, discerning, observing and then when you literally have the action call – and I do not mean a false cry of “wolf”; I mean a tangible phone number and an appointment – then you jump into action. And prior to that, you stay, feet, heart, head anchored in Gaia and anchored with me.

The Self is the Original Superhero – Steve Beckow

Warrior Prince Divine Masculine art by Jane Marin @ Jaaneman

~*~

The Self is the Original Superhero

The commonsense version of things has matters completely backwards.

If a person suddenly gets mad, we say, “I saw who he really is.”

No, you saw a vasana (core issue) go off obscuring who he really is.

The prevailing paradigm is that we’re born in original sin, who we are at the deepest level is sinful, etc.

And of course, as I experienced at Xenia, this is not so. (1) We’re not born in original sin. We’re born in original innocence.

How could it be otherwise?

How is the Self the Christ or Son of God if it’s sinful? How could it be that the closer we come to God, the more we approach original sin? It simply would negate every word that’s ever been said about God, spirituality, and enlightenment. The closer we approach God, the closer we approach our own original innocence.

This pure and original Self enters into lower and lower dimensions and forgets more and more about itself. Until here we are and we remember nothing.

We have needs and wants with seemingly limited means. We scrape by and we suffer, punctuated by times of plenty. We feel bad and create judgments about others and conflict with them and vasanas arise.

But all of that lies on top of the pure and shining Self, untouched by these lower-dimensional dramas and traumas.

That having been said, our experiences of it, as long as we’re fulfilling our soul contract as lightworkers, may be truncated so that we can continue to serve, as mine was at Xenia. The Divine Mother explains:

Steve Beckow: The Light I saw should have been brighter than a thousand suns. And the fact that it wasn’t suggests to me that the experience was truncated. Am I correct in that?

Divine Mother: 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….  But let me be very clear…. If you had seen the light as it actually is – yes, a million, billion suns – you would have simply departed.

Steve: Really! But that is, in classical enlightenment studies, thought of as the first stage of Enlightenment. Why would I depart, Mother?

DM: We don’t mean die but you would have departed the life that you have designed – yes with us, for yourself, for the service you are providing – you would have departed and simply said, “I do not need to do this. I will just simply sit in the bliss of love and good luck, everybody!” (2)

Seeing the Self, even toned down, is still a life-changing event.

The Self is the original superhero. It’s safe and secure, beyond the reach of the passions, shining in the seat of the heart. Our continued and eternal existence is guaranteed, it proclaims. We have nothing to fear.

In my reading with her, the Divine Mother asked me to give my worry to her.

I couldn’t say this even six months ago, but now I’m ready to do that.

I Want to Bring Love – Steve Beckow

~*~

I Want to Bring Love

How can one thing be three things at once and also be everything?

Love, light, and consciousness are three ways of viewing the same object, so to speak. That which is love is also light is also consciousness.  And love is also everything, at the same time. (Tilt!)

How are we to understand something we don’t know anything about, cannot grasp, and can’t make fit our reality?

The difficulty doesn’t lie with love/light/consciousness, of course. It lies with us.

My best guess is that, if we had one experience of the totality of love/light/consciousness, the mystery would vanish in a second. “Ahhhh, THAT.”

But before that experience, none of it makes sense.

Love is love. Light is light. And consciousness is consciousness. And that’s that. They are not the same.

I did have an experience that comes close to establishing the equation among the three. In my vision on Feb. 13, 1987, I was in bliss (love). I watched an entire tableau unfold before me (light). And I knew what each part of it was without anyone telling me (consciousness).  (1) And I knew I was touching into all three.

But I did not have an experience of the three being recognizably one.

Added to that mystery is the fact that love is everything. Everything is made from love. Love holds it all together for a while. Then love dissolves it again.

I care less and less for understanding these days and more and more for love.  Someone else can bring wisdom to the table; I want to bring love.

Karen: Is There Still Purpose in Being Ill? – Sanat Kumara

 

Beyond The Stars by Dorina Costras @ Redbubble

~*~

Karen: Is There Still Purpose in Being Ill?

“Karen” channeled this discussion with Sanat Kumara through automatic writing.

10/26/16

I was asking Raj about being ill and why, why is it taking so long. Am I not using the universal laws correctly? So, I asked him:


Karen: What do I do?

Raj: Just be.

K: Just be? There is no action?

Raj: You are hurt. You are injured. This is a good time to BE. What do you want to DO? Climb Mt. Rushmore?

Yes, I have a sense of humor. But seriously, in the stillness there is much action. Packets of information are flowing into you and indeed into everyone in the planet whether they know it or not.

Your desire to get moving is admirable, but is it wise for you at this time?

Now, you ask me how do I get well, is there still purpose in being ill?

I would say, yes there is, or you would be well.

You ask is this because I am not using the universal laws or not using them correctly? Well, not exactly, though practicing with them will help your advancement and that of the whole of Gaia, dearest one.

You think you do not know me, and I do not know you, but we do know each other and have known each other for millennia. I cherish you and your beautiful sparkling Will and eagerness to fulfill the Mother’s Plan.

It is taking too long; it is going too slow you, say, but that is all an illusion. There is no time. All is PROCEEDING .

So, being is o.k. It is more than O.K. It is Being in the stillness of the One. As Steve has commented on St Francis and his Debauschery, as it was called, he wondered if laws were violated how did he get from point A, let’s say to being a saint. (Laughs.) (1)

It is the same principle in ACTION with you. There will BE a TIME, as you live in a framework of brackets of action within set points/time, when you also ascend. Not Ascension because that is already occurring, but ascend the illness, the dis-ease, like St. Francis transcended his debauchery phase, shall we put it.

It will just occur. Does this mean you will sit back and wait? No, you are in action in THE STILLNESS and the time will come where everything will shift for you. You will feel well. You will be well.

Can I give you an exact date? Not exactly, but it will BE because that is the Mother’s will for you and all beings, and specifically because that is part of your unfolding and your plan that was designed together with mother father one.

Does that help clarify the conditions you currently manage, quite courageously, I will say. I am not alone by any means in that sentiment.

K: Yes, I believe it means I’m to BE and BE still for this now, trust and know that I am working.

Raj: Yes. There is nothing you desire more than to complete the Mother’s Plan and you are and you WILL.

To be continued my dearest heart. Call on me AnyTime. I am as close as your whisper.

Be in Love Dear One.

Always Raj.

Love: A Word that Works for Everyone – Steve Beckow

Love: A Word that Works for Everyone

What is it about love that makes it universally respected and desired?

As a Sociology graduate student, I did a study of love songs. It seemed to me that no other theme was as widely taken up in music. Closely followed by falling out of love, watching my love walk away, losing my love to another, etc.

Why love?

I can only speak for myself, but for me love has to be far and away the most satisfying … state of being … I don’t even know what to call it? It’s more than a feeling. It isn’t a thing.

It is something I experience. It comes from inside of me, in its most noticeable flow.  Everything is love so it can come from outside too.

It pays no attention to my body. It isn’t restricted to flowing in blood vessels or passing along the surface of my skin. It comes up with no attention to the physical. Therefore it isn’t generated by any physical organ like the physical heart.

It isn’t even generated by the spiritual heart (not the heart chakra). It comes up through the spiritual heart, from an unknown source. Is it the Self? The Mother? The One? Ultimately it must be the One.

The door of the spiritual heart (hridayam) opens and love can then be felt to flow.

Love does flow. Where?  Well, it flows everywhere. By its very nature, love is universal.

I get the benefit of it as it flows up from my heart, through me, and out to the world.

The touch of this more-refined and more-powerful love is transformative. In ordinary love, if anger arises, it overtakes the love. In transformative love, if anger arises, it cannot get close to this love. If it tries to approach, it instantly disappears.  Higher love transforms the circumstances rather than being affected by them.

There is nothing objectionable about it. (1)  Real love, when it comes, upstages everything else and holds our attention for as long as it’s present. When it departs, it leaves us hungering for more.

Drawing love up into my inner space causes me to feel wafted aloft. I drift in this experience of love completely comfortable.

Imagine all the things people have ever done for you to make you comfortable – pillows, temperature, tucked in. Imagine them all being done for you at once now. Complete comfort.

Now introduce into that space the most desirable in every sense: The best flavor, aroma, feel, etc. That’s what this kind of love is like – the best in every respect. Every sense, every inclination always already satisfied, by this kind of love.

I suppose all of us have some experiences or prior knowledge of love because, when the word is spoken, in my recollection, almost everyone defers to it or pays respect to it.

I have not known anyone who has said, “Love? What a load of sawdust.” Somebody done somebody wrong, perhaps, by walking away. But no disrespect for love itself.

I’m willing to assert, until disproven, that love is universally sought after.

We study depression and anxiety, but we don’t study love. Some day we will, simply because it’s a condition we’ll live in 24/7 after Ascension and we’ll all be endlessly rich in it.

Go Deeper – Steve Beckow

~*~

Go Deeper

My ego/mind is going nuts without loneliness. I hear:

  • How will I know I’m alive if I don’t feel pain? Surely I’ll blend in with the wallpaper.
  • Pain is the cost of feeling alive.
  • Nothing lasts. We lose in the end. Everything ends in goodbye.
  • You can’t trust anyone. You can’t rely on anyone. You have to rely on yourself.

The inner messages come pouring in, in favor of keeping loneliness in place.

Loneliness became an identity for me probably when Dad “left” me – emotionally – at a very early age – when he first shouted at me or slapped me or shook me back and forth, and couldn’t handle the guilt and disappointment with himself. So he “left.” Or so it seemed to a very young mind.

Loneliness then became a constant friend and I had to rationalize its presence and my preference for it. These (above) were my rationales, which now come to the aid of the preservation of loneliness.

I thought Maria Erving described the process very well. (1) I recognized myself in what she wrote.

I know I court loneliness by courting solitude. But I keep doing it. I don’t change.

Well, I do know why. Being a writer requires a great deal of solitude, I find. Loneliness is an occupational hazard that I accepted decades ago. It’s only one of many similarly-unwanted conditions.

I imagine all unwanted conditions and painful circumstances could be looked at as identities or constructed selves, formed at a very early age, which now are comfortable and familiar. And so we continue using them without questioning.

Nevertheless, who I am at the very deepest levels has nothing to do with loneliness or hatred, resentment, jealousy, or any of the other painful and unwanted conditions left over from childhood (“core wounds,” Mateo Sol called them). (2)

The Self, that “resides” in the heart – and this applies to all of us – is innocent and pure, natural and sweet. These painful feelings sit on top of it, so to speak. (3) They’re like overburden. And that’s all that sits on top of the Self. (4).

Psssst! Promise you won’t tell anyone? OK. There’s no original sin. There’s only original innocence.

I no longer believe that all the vasanas have to go before we go inward. Enough have to go that we’re in charge of ourselves; we have ourselves in hand. Then we can begin the journey.

Here’s what I recommend from experience.

Use whatever means you know of to clear away the rubble from your past. Don’t be dragging around Morley’s chain. However you do it is fine. You need to reach a point where you feel you have room to breathe from your vasanas or core wounds, some degree of distance, a little sunshine through the clouds.

Then dive deep into the heart with your awareness, using any kind of visualization that you can – diver, elevator, inner spaceship. If you have breathing room from your vasanas, your progress should be smooth and easy; if you don’t, then it can be like moving through molasses.

Go below the vasanas, just as you would go down a very long elevator. The vasanas are on the 30th floor and you’re already well beyond that.

Then begin by every visualization possible, to continue into the extreme depths of the heart. As Ramakrishna said, the only thing you need to remember – and do – is: Go deeper. Go deeper. Go deeper. You will be led to your destination. And you will know it.

Getting underneath what the Buddha called “the obfuscations” (the vasanas) and realizing the Self will elevate the mood of the planet, I think, contributing enormously to Gaia’s Ascension, as Sanat Kumara once reported: “The limitation of core issues, the expansion into love – all of this is changing the world that you live in.” (5)

The Divine Mother Has Become Everything – Narendra Mishra

Artist appreciation

~*~*~

The Divine Mother Has Become Everything

The Divine Mother Has Become Everything

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/the-divine-mother-has-become-everything

As we continue to celebrate the joyous festivities in honour of the Divine Mother, the Navratri, I wish to look in this article at the notion of the Divine Mother as Everything.

One of the greatest of Indian sages, Ramakrishna, had once remarked, “The Divine Mother has become everything.” (1)

All that is manifest, all that exists, is the Divine Mother. Whatever can be perceived or experienced through the senses; whatever can be conceived in the mind, all of this is the Divine Mother.

She is the active expression of pure undifferentiated Consciousness. The Divine Father is pure potential and stillness. The Divine Mother is movement and diverse manifestation. It is She who expresses the infinity of the Creator, for She is the Creator.

She is the creative power in Brahma, the Creator. She is the power of preservation in Vishnu. She is the power of dissolution in Shiva.

She is vaster than the multiverse, yet subtler than the ether. All forms of matter and energy are Her expression.

Like Ramakrishna, and those who have experienced Samadhi, I too have been blessed with this vision of the  Divine Mother as Everything. It is at once humbling as it is gratifying. When one sees the Mother in everything, one’s spirit soars in sublime ecstasy. It is an experience that beggars description.

In Hinduism there are many allusions to this notion of the Divine Mother in everything. In Hinduism the cow is considered a sacred animal. There are many reasons for this, and all of them valid. But, it is merely a stepping stone to seeing all animals as sacred.

Speaking of stones, in Hinduism the Shiva Lingam, and Vishnu Shalegram, are sacred stones. Yet again, these are but stepping stones to seeing all stones, rocks and minerals as sacred.

Likewise, the mango and fig trees are sacred. The durva grass is sacred. All of these are stepping stones to seeing all trees, plants, and grasses as sacred.

The Ganges, is a sacred river. So are all rivers, streams, ponds, and oceans.

All are expressions of the Divine Mother.

Of this, Sri Krishna tells us in Bhagavad Gita,

“The wise look with equanimity on all whether it be a Brahmana (priest or holy man) endowed with learning and humility, a cow, an elephant, a dog, and a pariah (outcaste) too.” (2)

In this verse Sri Krishna is clearly referencing the Divine Nature in everything. The essential unity in diversity. All are expressions of the Divine Mother. She Herself has become Everything.

When the Creator took form as Sri Rama and was in the forest looking for a place to stay, he inquired the same of the great sage Valmiki. The sage replied with humility and devotion,

“You ask me: ‘Where should I take up my residence?’ But I ask You with diffidence, tell me first the place where You are not then alone can I show You a suitable place.” (3)

All that is manifest is the Divine Mother. So too, the avatar of Sri Rama is also an expression of the Divine Mother in form. The Father is not manifest- only the Mother is. The Consciousness of Sri Rama is the Father, the expression and manifestation of that Consciousness is the Mother.

So who is the Divine Mother? She is Everything. It is She who has become Everything.

Jai Maa!

Explosion in the Meaning of Humanness – Steve Beckow

****

Explosion in the Meaning of Humanness

AA Michael once said that we weren’t going through an expansion in the meaning of humanness, but an explosion:

“The horizons of what it means to be human, of what it means to be Gaian … comes to the forefront in redefinition, expansion and, might I even say, explosion of what it means to be in human form – Angel in form – at this time upon this beloved planet.” (1)

“Yes, we know that we have used this term ‘expansion’ time and time and time again and expansion in this instance does mean explosion.” (2)

If you can be with and savor the distinction between “expansion” and “explosion,” you have the difference between Third/Fourth Dimensionality and Fifth, as I’ve known it in my brief excursions.

Expansion is gradual. Explosion is sudden. The heart exploding, for instance, creates a spiritual pipeline where before there was only blockage and no flow. Some obstruction is blown away and now love flows. It’s wordless so we’re left to wonder, after the fact, what just happened.

As Michael is indicating, Ascension is both gradual and sudden. The expansion part is gradual, going on all the time.

The explosions, which result in brief excursions to the higher dimensions, are the sudden part. These events may come decades apart:

1977 – Lost fear of death after OOBE.
1987 – Was shown the purpose of life. Now knew what to do.
2015 – Had my heart blown open. Etc. First experience of transformative love.
2018 – Had a glimpse of the Self. First knowledge of my own innocence at essence.

Each event repays years of peeling off the layers.

Sometimes the way things appear to me these days is as if I’m in a mine where there’s been an explosion. A wall of dirt now separates me and my rescuers. And we have miners on both sides of the wall digging furiously.

When there’s the slightest glimmer of light, that light brings increased freedom. Right now for instance, working with the metaphor of miners digging, I see intellectually that I am that Self that I saw.  That is a glimmer of light, that I will need to nourish, if I want the light of freedom to break through.

The only direction worth going in right now is inwards. The only place for me to go is to master every thought and feeling. And the only game worth playing is to move from being what Werner Erhard called “at effect” in my life to being “at cause.” (3)

I am the Self that I saw.  I really have been dreaming. And having a bad one at that. Hence I feel agitated and resentful upon awakening.

If I’m to honor who I really am, rather than perpetrate against and obstruct it, then I need to master every thought and feeling.

It used to be a favorite saying among spiritualists that, when we come to know the workings of the Law of Karma, our lives gradually begin to straighten out. Karma = causality so I’d extend that and say when we learn the true causality of things, our lives straighten out.

I see more clearly every day the degree to which I cause my life. When I see that, I also see my need to take command of my various bodies and selves, (4) to emerge from unconsciousness into consciousness, from immaturity into maturity.

(3) At effect = Powerless, victim, subject to forces outside myself that determine my choice of words and deeds.

At cause = Empowered, not a victim, determining my own choice of words and deeds.

Emerging from Painful Feelings – Steve Beckow

Blue Arcturian Angel @ Fine Art America by Ananda Vdovic

~*~*~

Emerging from Painful Feelings

Thoughts call up feelings, but feelings motivate us to act.

If feelings are the strongest motivator, then it stands to reason that I’d want to look at how they work.

I’d want to know what I’m doing to have myself feel bad, painful, uncomfortable, dismayed, etc.

I’d want to know what I might do to eliminate feeling bad and reveal the innocent and happy Self that lies underneath the unwanted feelings.

Let me take an example. Right now I’m feeling lonely. All my friends are away for the weekend.

Loneliness is a good one to look at because we universally dislike it. We can probably agree that loneliness is a universally-unwanted condition.

Loneliness is heavy. Under its influence, things come to a standstill. I sit and mope.

I decided to emerge from my loneliness. Virginia Satir once said that if we want success in our therapeutic interventions we needed at least three approaches to any one problem.  (1) Here are my three approaches to the elimination of loneliness.

The first is to invoke the Universal Law of Elimination and Sanat Kumara to take the feeling away. If that worked, it’d be the fastest and easiest.

The second is to process it using the upset clearing process. (2) If invoking the law does not work, processing will and it’s always very educational.

The third is to dissolve it with love drawn from my heart, a method I know will succeed.

I do invoke the Universal Law of Elimination and Sanat Kumara to take the feeling of loneliness away from me, in all its forms and at all times, and to return the energy to Source for reuse in another form.

And it does work. Loneliness is gone. I’m surprised. I don’t know if this kind of success was always available or only recently, given the increased energy of the Tsunami of Love.

Truthfully I was looking forward to processing it, but the efficiency that invoking the law promises is welcome.

Now I bring up love from my heart, like the divine caretaker who sweeps away any residue.

I’ll have to repeat the experiment to verify the outcome, but, if invoking universal law allows us to emerge from painful feelings and other unwanted conditions, that would greatly speed things up for us all.

I’ll have saved a great deal of time and suffering, although the journey through experiencing our core issues is highly instructive and will be missed.

The quick release of loneliness in this way also adds weight to the argument that the Old Third has vanished and exists only in our subjective reality – that is, in our minds.

Footnotes

(1) If we have only one, we might reach a place where it did not work. If we had two, the mind tends to favor one against the other, which means we still, practically, have only one. But if we have three, the mind can no longer easily dispose of matters by making one right and the other wrong.

I Already Have What I Want – Steve Beckow

Gratitude to artist

****

I Already Have What I Want

I’m on a ferry to Victoria to celebrate my birthday with my family.

I’m momentarily awash in love and bliss. There can be no better feeling than this.  Except more deeply feeling it, which is all one ever wants at these moments.

It’s our common destination. Let me try to describe it.

First off, I feel supremely happy, secure, fulfilled. Higher-dimensional love does all these things to a person.

Second, the mind chatter is absent. There’s no felt impediment, obstacle, or reservation.

While in my everyday state, I might feel afraid to feel safe (because of childhood memories). But if this type of love is added to the equation, these considerations all disappear. And disappear immediately. They cannot coexist with this state of being. (1)

Third, I seem to have access to knowledge, in this state, that I don’t ordinarily have. Ideas flow. Connections I might not ordinarily make are possible here. My confidence is greater. I’m no longer worried about what others think of me.

Fourth, everything works in this space. A great deal does not work when I’m in my ordinary moods.

While I might be ordinarily short-tempered and self-absorbed, in this space I feel patience and interest in others.

Removed are all my likes and dislikes around being with other people. They are simply gone, not there.

All need to hurry is gone. I put one foot in front of the other and head for the ferry. While boarding with the crowd, I take care of the three square feet below and around my feet and keep my attention on myself.

I allow others to go ahead of me. No need to push or shove.

I already have what I want.

The Divine Mother Explains the Nature of Love to Us – Steve Beckow

~*~*~

The Divine Mother Explains the Nature of Love to Us

In the course of other research, I came across a very interesting passage where the Divine Mother explains love to us.

The love that the Mother’s talking about here is not the love that’s known to most of us. That’d be like comparing Tang to freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice. There’s absolutely no comparison.

The love that she’s talking about dissolves all our knots in consciousness (“soul wounds” as Mateo Sol called them; “core issues” as Linda Dillon calls them).  It leaves us totally satisfied, wanting nothing else than more of it.

It brings with it all good things of true value, such as peace, joy, bliss, etc.

Just imagine yourself unreservedly shouting to everyone on Earth:   YYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!

If that is head-and-shoulders beyond how you normally feel, it may suggest the difference in experience between ordinary and this extraordinary love.

Here’s the Queen of Heaven explaining love to us.


“Transcript of the Divine Mother: Density is Unloving Emotion; Love is Lightness of Being,” March 6, 2015, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/03/06/transcript-of-the-divine-mother-density-is-unloving-emotion-love-is-lightness-of-being/.


Steve: You said that everything is created from love, that love is the only essence, substance, fiber there is. So love is the building block of the universe. But others, like SaLuSa and the Arcturian Group, have also called it the glue of the Universe, and others say love is the solvent – love binds things and dissolves them, plunging them back into voidness.

We here have a great deal of difficulty in thinking of something doing such seemingly different functions. How can love both build, preserve, and dissolve? What is it about love that allows it to do so?

Divine Mother: It is a multipurpose tool. It is a multipurpose energy that can be whatever is required. So there are times when it is the dissolver; there are times when it is the building block; there are times when it is the glue.

There are so many expressions, or what you would think of as elements, of the love, the joy, the sweetness, the nurturing. All of the divine qualities – hope, purity, chastity, charity – all of these are unified in love.

And you say, “Well, wait a minute. What is love? Is it the joy? Is it the nurturing? Is it the creation?” Now, each civilization – and I mean upon Gaia and far beyond; you have mentioned the Arcturians for example – do I stop and correct them? Of course not!

Does this [X] matter? Is this [Y] a critical element? Not as long as they are using and being the love.

But let us be very basic. My essence is love. The Father and I are conjoined as One, [by?] our love. And it is from this union that all is born.

This is part of what Sanat Kumara has been teaching you:  The transmutation of that essence, of my being, can be a building block, can be a glue, can be skin, can be a heart, can be a limb, can be a building, can be whatever is required.

And what I do – and this is the heart of the discussion that we have this day – I give you again and again and again and again, my essence. I am part of you. Inseparable.

My essence is love.

Now, in many cultures and civilizations, they call that love by many names. That does not matter because the knowing, the feeling, the experience, the energy does not change. I am a part of thee, each and every one of you. And this has been reinforced by my Tsunami of Love.

[The Mother effortlessly glides from one profound topic to another.]

But, beloveds, you are also a part of me, of us, of One. And that is the piece that oftentimes is forgotten. And that is why I say there is no separation.

So think of it in this way – if you are an energy healer, a healer of the Violet Flame, one of St. Germaine’s best friends, you send the love from your heart, from your hands, and you flood the person with healing energy, and it is a flow of color and richness, seen and unseen.

And what would St. Germaine say to you? You are sending the love – his expression. Archangel Raphael’s expression, Lao Tzu’s expression, Sanat Kumara’s expression – you have variations of that healing energy. But if you scratch the surface, [they are all] the wondrous expressions of love.

Now, if you are a wordsmith, then your tool and what you choose to create are words, sentences, paragraphs, and space between the letters and words. And it is brilliant, and it is challenging, and it is insightful.

But what is it? It is a transmission of love, whether it is from Gabrielle or Michael. It is love. [Love] is the substance. It is the form. It is the energy. And it is the message. So which part of it is the love? I suggest to you, all of it.

If you are a bricklayer, and you are building a home for your beloved family, is it the brick or the stone, the mortar or the foundation that is the love? Or is it the energy that the bricklayer puts into them? It is all of the above.

So the answer to your question – and I am pleased to address this – is that all of it is my love. And I can take a billion forms, and I have just begun. So do not take your time, my sweet beloveds, trying to count the number of angels on the head of a pin, because they are all expressions of love just like you.

Does this make sense to thee?

[On another occasion, she says:]

Nothing – let me be clear about this – nothing in the infinite creation of eternity is constant. And everything is constant because everything is created from Love. That is the only essence; that is the only substance; that is the only fiber there is. So everything that takes form comes from Love, comes from my heart and my essence.

What’s the Plan for Building Nova Earth? – Steve Beckow

Artwork Painting – Earth by Svetlana Tikhonova at Fine Art America

~*~*~

What’s the Plan for Building Nova Earth?

What’s the Divine Mother’s Plan for building Nova Earth?

Well, the first thing we need to know about it is that it involves us.  We are essential to it, as she tells us here in one of her statements of the Plan:

“This is my Plan. I beckon you. I invite you and now I am reaching out to you. Take my hand that we may go forth in the truest adventure of the co-creation of Earth, of Gaia, of Gaians and humanity and the multiplicity of the kingdoms.” (1)

The Plan is for us to become our creator selves and rebuild the planet:  “To be your creator self is the Plan.” (2)

While Gaians have been at war with each other for almost their entire history, the Plan sees us all come into harmony, as she tells us here:

“To be in the harmony of One … is my Plan, to be in the harmony of love, in that perfect balance of bliss and exuberance and joy.” (3)

It doesn’t lack adventure, she reassures us: “I do not imply that [it] negates adventure. Quite the contrary!” (4)

We cannot become our creator selves without aligning with love, she tells us:

“You cannot fully embody and embrace the totality of your creator self, especially in form, if you are not in alignment with the love, with the will, and even with the divine mind. That harmony necessitates creation and it is also a precursor to meaningful creation.” (5)

We create from a space of love calling love into manifestation in a world entirely built from love.

What’s new about Nova Earth if there’s no love in it? she asks.

“If the love is not present, if the commitment, the demonstration of that commitment is not present in physicality, then how is it Nova Earth? How are you Nova Beings? How does that reflect the anchoring of heart consciousness?” (6)

She acknowledges that she fills us with the inspiration we’ll need to build Nova Earth:

“You are … filled with inspiration, with ideas, with love, with laughter to bring that stillness into form, into matter, into experience, into creation. And right now beloved ones, into the creation of Nova Being and Nova Earth.”  (7)

In 2015, she guided us on how to build Nova Earth.

Divine Mother: Sweet Steve, you have said to me many times: How do we build this Nova Earth?

Steve Beckow: [laughing] Yes, Mother.

DM: And you build it, my beloved son, by claiming the love, by claiming the building blocks, the glue, the dissolving agent, and you use it as your creator self however you choose.

And I support those choices because when we are in harmony, when I am permitted to be acknowledged and loved within you as you are within me, then the choices are always reflective of this forward movement of Ascension. (8)

She asks us to expand our dreams, to think big:

“Michael has spoken on my behalf many times and asked you to dream big. You’re not there yet. So let me infuse you, let me gift you that, as you expand, your creations expand. Your being expands. And the feeling, the knowing, the anchoring of my essence within reach and every one of you expands. Let it be, dear hearts.” (9)

She asks us to start close to home and extend ourselves in a steadily-growing circle.

“Take care of those around you, those within your community — and yes, I do mean your lightworker community — who are in need, and then take care of what your heart dictates. There are some of you who immediately migrate to taking care of the humans, and there are some of you that immediately migrate to taking care of the land, of the oceans, of the seas, of restoring Gaia.

“There are some of you that are moved to reinstate systems, institutions, cultures that support ethical behavior. So do that, because it is always in alignment with your mission and purpose. There are some of you who are moved to take care of the barking animals because they are hungry.” (10)

Many extinct species will return, she informs us.

“Now, in the new world, many species that have been extinct will return. Your cities become places of fresh air and play and gardens. And so some of you will wish to take care of that and be part of that creation. So go where your heart pulls you. Many of you have come to work with your star brothers and sisters, because, do not forget, we know the attention in the moment is on the Ascension and the completion of this wondrous, wondrous anchoring of love.

“But the next phase, dear heart, is the ripple effect out into my universes. So many of you will be focused on working with your star brothers and sisters and the next Ascension.” (11)

Excuse me? The next Ascension? Say what?

Well, yes. Michael revealed in 2011-12 that the next Ascension will happen after a time-out of 200 years.

AAM: When you complete this mission, you are allowed to have 200 years off.  (12)

S: The next assignment is in the Seventh Dimension?

AAM: You will have a choice of planetary systems. This is just the warm-up for [a further] Ascension. It is to bring a further rising of vibrations to those throughout the Universe. 
 (13)

Hold onto your seat and see you in the Seventh!

Carrying the Treasure with Me -Steve Beckow

Carrying the Treasure with Me

The experience at Xenia and its implications keep rippling through me.

What follows is a course correction for me. If I followed the seemingly-innocuous path I was contemplating, I’d risk betraying the love that I know.

It’s also a part of my mission. AAMichael has said that where he wants me to go next is to illustrate the healing that needs to take place in all areas of life. After Xenia, he said:

Archangel Michael: What you are doing next, and let me also say, what we – you and I – are doing next is focusing on the healing, the clearing, the redirection of social, moral, spiritual, emotional issues that somehow – undercover – subtly and actually, create an environment where such behaviour [as pedophilia] is tacitly accepted.  (1)

This can be viewed as an article contributing to facilitating the healing of spiritual and emotional issues.

I was just about to go for a walk on the beach on a sunny October afternoon when I realized that how I was approaching things was awry. My walk was about meeting people. That was the real purpose of it. A seemingly-innocuous decision….

But below it was the thought that I needed other people to enjoy myself. I saw myself as seeking diversion, humor, comfort, affirmation, validation, love, from others, which is a common enough practice in our society.

But I also heard myself say: What am I doing?  I’m selling myself out and, worse, selling love out.

Just as Maria Erving says, (2) there’s backsliding here, a foot in both camps, waffling.

I know full well that all good things come from my own heart.  But I’m betraying that knowledge by looking to others to supply it for me.

If I agree to step back into ignorance – acting as if love primarily comes from another – love will leave. It does so quickly, simply disappearing.

I don’t know how to fit the Xenia experience (the sight and experience of the Self) into conventional categories because I think it was truncated. I base that on the expectation that the sight of the Self should have been brighter than a thousand suns. Instead it was translucent. But what do I know?

There was no mistaking the feeling content of the experience – innocence and purity. But I have questions about what I saw.  (3)

Contrary to what we might think, these regrettably-short-lived experiences don’t result in a cessation of wobbling, waffling, and making compromises, etc.

Soon after – around two weeks in my case – the experience dissipates and the memory starts growing dimmer.

I’m back to being my old self with just a little additional help. I lost the intimacy of the contact and connection with the Self and it now becomes a memory. (4)

We’re back in the whirl of social convention and conditioned responses. And in most cases we succumb and return to the status quo before the experience. That was the situation Maria was reporting on.

Again, if we look at relationship post-experience, one experience doesn’t (usually) mean smooth sailing there either. Remember “Bright Star” and how he and his wife were having difficulty that could be traced back to the changes wrought in him by his heart opening? (5)

When my heart opened on March 13, 2015, I entered the loneliest period of my life. (6) No one around me knew about either a heart opening or transformative love. Many pretended that they did, which was awkward for me.

I was alone in the world, not wanting to abandon love for the world’s version of it.  So all is not roses just because we now have at least some access to higher-dimensional love.

What it amounts to is that I’m trading my own experiential and realizational wisdom for the lights and drama of connection and relationship. Great in the world’s terms but not so great in love’s terms.

I’m calling myself on not being serious about love.

It’s a choice that’ll need to be made day after day: Do I want to increase my experience of love or watch it disappear?

It’s a choice that doesn’t face many people. Unless we’ve experienced this much richer and more powerful form of love, we wouldn’t know why it’s worth fighting for, so to speak. Fighting with our own tendency to betray it, that is.

Seeking love from outside myself when I have access to the gold mine inside me (7) is turning my back on what I know to be reality.  Some sage once reminded us that we have to be faithful to our awakenings if they’re to become anchored in us. We can’t betray them and hope they’ll stay.

If I want to increase my experience of love, I need to respect the fact that I’m the source of my own enjoyment, my own salvation, my own love.

I’m not to be passing the hat to others begging for pennies when I have a treasure chest full of gold in my heart. (AAMichael calls it “spiritual currency” – infinitely more important than physical currency.)

Before, I never was this serious about anything. Because there never was anything worth being serious about.

But now that I see what’s valuable and available – now that I’ve tasted innocence and purity, added to transformative love – I pour all of my emotional and mental energy into working on my connection with the Self to make available to myself as much of that experience as is I can, consistent with my mission. And so will you when you get bitten.

Did we not focus “on the healing, the clearing, the redirection of social, moral, spiritual, emotional issues”?

If we can correct our own thinking on the matter of where love is to be found and begin to seek the experience of love in and from our own hearts (use the inbreath to draw it up), the satisfaction level of the population would go up, I predict, dramatically.

That would elevate our vibrations and carry the world closer to being beyond the reach of those who’d exploit our children. We’re increasing our power to love and the amount that we do love. That must be a direct contribution to ending pedophilia.

I’m sufficient unto myself in this most precious of gifts. I have the gift of love and, with that, everything – including gold and jewels – loses its luster.

I fill myself with love right now.  Now I have no need to go anywhere or to do anything, although I can if I want.

Love really is the answer. Love will make the world work for everyone.

Forget everything you ever heard about love and experience your own. Your own inner tsunami of love will be the best teacher.

All is answered by this love. All is settled by it. All is transformed by it.

Archangel Michael: What Is the Lightbody? – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael: What Is the Lightbody?

J in Australia shares a passage on the lightbody from her reading with Archangel Michael through Linda Dillon on Dec 29, 2017.

Archangel Michael: It is a very good question that you pose, and during this time of expanded awareness and expanded understandings, this is a good question for many to understand. …

Your question is truly about “What is the lightbody?”

There is a misunderstanding during this time of expansion, during this time of new beginnings, during this time of reawakening, that the lightbody is something that is acquired rather than something that is an innate, essential part of who you are and of who you have always been – and that it has always been there and it is as an essential part of you as your DNA, and the DNA which is your DNA, which is also the DNA of the Mother/Father/One.

That is why your tri-flame has three elements which include the masculine/the gold diamond, and the blue diamond of the Mother, and your own essential self. So the lightbody has always been part of you. Think of it, think of the mythologies, the fairy tales. You cannot divorce yourself from your shadow. You are not Peter Pan, and so you cannot divorce yourself or separate yourself from your lightbody. It has always been a part of you, an essential part of you.

And fundamentally… yes, fundamentally, essentially you have always been held together by your lightbody and that is why, increasingly, we have emphasized and you have come to realize, as a human race and particularly as a loveholder, how essential and important the lightbody is.

It is not that your physicality or even your outer fields, your entire auric field as you would think of it, is containing your lightbody. Understand, your lightbody is containing everything you are. The atoms, the subatomic particles of your physicality are not holding the lightbody.

The lightbody is holding together all of those miniscule, subatomic particles. As you have breathed in, as you have welcomed, as you have expanded into the fullness of your lightbody, it is like turning on the lights. And think of it in some ways – as you have had, and do have, continue to have – like a dimmer switch. And what happened is your dimmer switch was basically almost in the off-position, but the current that was flowing into that lightbody was not turned off. But what you have been doing is bringing it up higher, higher, higher, higher into full-quotient reality.

And so, people are becoming… such as your beloved friend, KR, is becoming… more fully aware – as you, sweet angel of light, are becoming more fully aware of the unified field of your lightbody and your being – that there is and there cannot be any separation, that they are one, and that you are holding that quintessential essence of all of your being in physicality.

So the trick has never been to assume your lightbody. The trick has been to bring the fullness of your lightbody up to complete quotient while in physicality. That is truly the shift!

Is this clear?

J: Yes, thank you. Do the lightbodies activate each other? So, for instance, do other lightbodies, other people, does their lightbody then recognize somebody else’s and give it strength as well, and that’s how it flows out into the world?

AAM: Into the world, yes, that is exactly correct. It is as if you are lighting each other up quite literally. You have that sense of various levels of recognition.

So, for example, you may see somebody in a situation where they don’t fit, so you say to yourself “but I know you” and you realize that you are seeing someone at the theatre that you normally have seen just in passing for ten years at the grocery store. And so you think “oh, I know you” but it takes a moment to place them.

Similarly, there is the soul recognition when you meet somebody and immediately you think “I know you, I love you” or “I know you and we have crossed paths and done war together.”

So there is that soul-to-soul acknowledgment. There is a similarity of, shall we call it, energetic lightbody to energetic lightbody. And one of the qualities of the lightbodies is they love to dance together. So yes, when they see each other, there is literally an activation on that level.

J: That’s amazing. Thank you.

Nivaratri: Victory to the Divine Mother! Narendra Mishra

Nivaratri: Victory to the Divine Mother!

Posted to Awakening Spark on Nivaratri.

Narendra has invited me to say a word about the Divine Mother this Navratri. No subject interests me more.

The relationship between the Holy Father Brahman and the Divine Mother Shakti forms the basis of all the most important relationships we have. (1)

We are, at this dimension of existence, spirits within a material body. The body, together with everything at all material, is made by the Mother Shakti. The spirit – as an individuated consciousness – is “made” by the Father Brahman. (2)

The relation between spirit and matter (mater, Mother) teaches us the relation between the Father and the Mother.

If we want an image to capture the relationship between the “two” of them I suggest the image of a person with a fan before her face who removes it to reveal … nothing.

Brahman is unknowable, invisible, silent, still. Shakti is knowable, visible, audible, and active. Only Shakti can reveal Brahman to us.

She is all we can know. Of herself she said on An Hour with an Angel:

Steve: How are you known, Mother?

Divine Mother: I am known as all. I am known as love. I am known as dynamic action, as movement, as constant change, as fulfillment. Sometimes you tend to think of me as the Holy Spirit, but there is more to me than that, and there is a shade of the Father within there as well.

But I am known by the movement within you and the movement within your Earth, within all things, within all universes.

I am a birther and a giver. … I am the rhythm. I am the flow.  …

I am the beginning and I am … the end. … Does this answer your question, child? (3)

Indeed it did.

She raises up our consciousness in her school of matter to the point where we’re ready to “meet” the Father and then drops her fan to reveal him.

As Narendra pointed out, she is Aum/Amen, the universal creative vibration, though that is not her totality. (4) She is also the love that Aum works on to fashion its creations from. She is creator, creating, and creation; creation, preservation, and transformation. (5)

One has only to study fractals to see the care with which she designs things. Or look through a telescope one minute and a microscope the next. She designed the least and the greatest, in this universe and all others.

Now, Sri Ramakrishna says, can you see how grand she is?

Yet grand as she is, she deigns to speak to her devotees through channels in this era. I know many people who’ve spoken to the Divine Mother in the course of their lightworker duties. And I have myself during eight years of radio broadcasting.

This era is blessed beyond all others through its access to her and by being able to serve her so openly, freely, and deeply.

There’s no escaping her. There’s only ultimate surrender and freedom.

Jai Ma! Victory to the Mother! Her victory is inevitable. It’s our victory. It’s the victory of the One in all.

Footnotes

(1) If you said, under your breath, “and the Divine Child Atman,” that would be the Holy Trinity’s equivalent in Hinduism.

(2) The knot in consciousness or granthi creates the sense of separation and individuality, which disappears with the “final” enlightenment.

Its details no one knows. Like Sri Ramakrishna’s salt doll that went to measure the ocean and never returned, no one has returned from “final” enlightenment to describe it.

(5) Therefore she is Akar, Ukar, and Makar = rajas, sattwa, and thamas. She is also Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva.

Watching My Own Arrogance – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Manipura – Solar Plexus art by Jane Marin

****

Watching My Own Arrogance

I wanted to say more about feelings like arrogance because I think the discussion needs to be had, preferably before the Reval.

Since writing “Two Views of the Ego,” (1) I’ve been watching my own arrogance and I see it, just below the surface.

What happens with most of us in the process of growing up, I think, is that we suppress, control, or hide our arrogance – or similarly troublesome feelings. But they don’t go away – as long as we live in these dense vibrations. (2)

And they’re troublesome because other people don’t like being around arrogant people for a variety of reasons.

I think, deep down, we have an intuitive understanding that the ego in everyone operates in part through drawing on feelings like arrogance, jealousy, anger, manipulation, etc.

The function of the ego is to promote the survival of the organism. In caveman times, the ego kept us alert and alive. Suspiciousness, focused concern on one’s own person, responding with ferocity – all had survival value in the dog-eat-dog world of tribal circles. The strongest survived (and was admired) and the weakest went to the wall.

What seems to promise survival more than being on the top of the heap – and being recognized as such? I am the King (or Queen). I am the Judge. I am the Guru, until the population rises up and overthrows the arrogant one.

Seeing that other people bristle when we relate to them from an arrogant place may not be enough to stop us however. But when people drift away from us or reject us outright, we … OK, I … gradually or quickly come to see that these negative feeling states don’t promise a happy future.

Although I no longer reside in that place, I’m told and believe that a spiritual state is permanently reached where (1) we realize we live forever and so survival concerns fall away, (2) we experience a deeper form of love that naturally and unendingly embraces everyone, and (3) we find ourselves putting the welfare of others ahead of our own (after first taking care of our own basic needs). We call that state “Ascension.”

I’ve seen how the inner tsunami of higher-dimensional love wipes away feelings like arrogance, jealousy, hatred, etc. Nonetheless, I’m back in the soup of feeling the negative feelings again, that experience of love having been temporary.

Until that state of affairs becomes permanent after Ascension, the best it gets is to feel the arrogance and other negative feelings as they arise, simply “be with” them, experience them through to completion rather than acting on them, and then let them go.

That’s the best way I know. Byron Katie may have a faster way. Or someone else. I literally have seen dozens of approaches to what I call vasanas (core issues) advertised on the Internet or in bookstores.

Why am I mentioning this now? Because, as I said earlier and repeat here, I believe that the Reval will expand many of these latent tendencies and feelings in us. The situation will be compounded because our wealth will suggest to us that we really are superior. The chosen people, as one intel guru calls us.

And it’ll be compounded more because we now have the means to act on our feelings of outrage at being poorly treated. We may set about suing people or buying up companies that offend us, etc. We’re now launched on a path that will ultimately lead to our downfall.

So what was before merely amusing – the thought of us marching up and down in front of a mirror, admiring ourselves, like the Emperor with his “new clothes” – has now become a realistic scenario in which we march unwittingly into our own mission’s failure. Our inhibitions are removed and we become part of the very social force we wanted to see removed or disappear. (3)

Awareness is our best friend, I think, in moving through these troublesome feelings. Rumi called simply watching and being aware of our thoughts and feelings without resisting them, “welcoming the unexpected guest.”

Not putting them on like a suit of armor and then laying waste to those around us whom we regard as the cause of our troubles or somehow “inferior” to us. That, as so many movies and novels remind us, will not have a happy ending.

(2) Feelings like these were absent from my experiences in higher-dimensional love and bliss.

(3) I described in “Two Views of the Ego,” above, how on two occasions I saw the face of my unbridled ego and it was shocking. That sets up my thinking on this matter. I know what can be unleashed if we surrender to what feels good in the moment but has bad long-term outcomes, such as arrogance, jealousy, greed, etc.

Glory to the Divine Mother – Navratri 2018 – Narendra Mishra

Glory to the Divine Mother – Navratri 2018

From October 9 till October 17, 2018 Hindus worldwide will be engaged in 9 days and nights of celebration of the Divine Mother. This festival is known as the Navratri or Nine Nights of the Divine Mother.

In this article I look briefly at the Divine Mother. Briefly because She is Everything. There is no end to Her Glory and Greatness.


Narendra Mishra, “Glory to the Divine Mother – Navratri 2018,” Awakening Spark, 9/10/2018 at https://awakeningspark.com/blog/glory-to-the-divine-mother-navratri-2018


There are two major Navratri celebrations every year that correspond to the start of the Spring and Autumn. These seasonal transitional periods have long been observed to be difficult, often heralding much change.

Thus the ancient seers recommended worship of the Highest Principle and the Highest Cause during this time to assist humanity in navigating these changes. They recommended worship of the Divine Mother.

The principle of the Divine Mother is found throughout the world in almost all cultures and religions. In Hinduism, she is the Goddess Durga, Kali, Lakshmi, Saraswati, and many others. In the Christian world she is the Mother Mary. For the Chinese she is Quan Yin. For the Greeks she is Athena, and Aphrodite, and many others. I can go on and on.

Why the Divine Mother? The Divine Mother is the manifesting Principle of the Divine Father. The Divine Father is the pure, unitive, universal, Consciousness that is latent. It is the ground or foundation of Being. The Divine Mother is this same energy in action, movement, and manifestation.

The Divine Mother and the Divine Father are ONE. There is no difference. In Hindu iconography there is the half male, half female form of Shiva and Parvati which denotes the equality and identity of the Divine Mother and Father.

Picture

Of the Divine Mother, Sri Ramakrishna has said:

“The Divine Mother revealed to me in the Kali temple that it was She who had become everything. She showed me that everything was full of Consciousness. The image was Consciousness, the water was Consciousness, the altar was Consciousness, the water vessels were Consciousness, the doorsill was Consciousness, the marble floor was Consciousness-all was Consciousness.” (1)

That pure Consciousness is transcendental. It is the Father – the Brahman. That Consciousness in manifestation is the Shakti – the Divine Mother.

This immanent world, the world of manifestation, comes out from Her like waves upon the infinite ocean of Consciousness.

She is the mystic syllable- the AUM, the AMEN. She is the grand unified field of physics. She is the primordial energy that births stars, planets, and galaxies.

She is the tenderness in a flower blossom, the fierceness of a raging waterfall. She is the wetness in water, the heat in fire.

Where can Her glory end? She is the Divine Mother. She is EVERYTHING.

Jai Maa!

What is the Transcendent Reality? – Part 2/2 – Narendra Mishra

What is the Transcendent Reality? – Part 2/2

Picture

Brahma, the Creator, emerging from the navel of Vishnu

Steve: Narendra and I differ on our use of the term “Transcendental,” but the difference is in words, not realities. All opinions are welcome here.


What is the Transcendent Reality? – Part 2/2

Awakening Spark, Sept. 18, 20-18

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/what-is-the-transcendent-reality-part-22

(Concluded from Part 1)

As spiritual writer and researcher Steve Beckow has noted, the terrestrial sages of the past did not have the vocabulary needed to explain in any detail the notion of the transcendent reality. We are fortunate in these times to have with us a scientific vocabulary to use to describe the transcendent reality. This comes from quantum physics in general, and string theory in particular.

Bhagavad Gita speaks of the transcendental reality as follows:

“From the unmanifested all the manifested (worlds) proceed at the coming of the “day”; at the coming of the “night” they dissolve verily into that alone which is called the unmanifested.” – Bhagavad Gita, 8-18

Here the term ‘unmanifested’ refers to the transcendent reality. By and large, the discussion in the past was limited to either manifested (immanent) or unmanifested (transcendent).

The graphic above shows a popular representation of Brahma emerging out of the navel of Vishnu. This is symbolic of the manifest creation emerging out of the unmanifest transcendent.

Now however, that has changed. We now have the concept of various dimensions of reality. Students of mathematics will be familiar with the three-dimensional concept of space for instance.

String theory suggests that there may be more than just the three dimensions to space that we live in. In fact, there may be at least 10 dimensions.

More than just the scientific facts and figures, living at a time of transition away from the dark age of the Kali Yuga, we now have access to extra-dimensional sources who can clarify and instruct us on this topic.

As reported by Steve, one such source, Archangel Michael, states that we live in a 12-dimensional universe. Each dimension has various sub-dimensions.

​Different sources give different numbers for these dimensions, but this inconsistency is easily resolved by the recognition that there are no hard and fast markers to the dimensions. Each flows into the other.

Therefore, one source might merge the qualities and characteristics (or frequencies) of one dimension within another, whereas another source may see it fit to separate them. The important point to note is that there are more dimensions to the three that we live in.

​Where then in this context of dimensions does the transcendental fit in? In the Law of One, Ra offers a clue as follows:

36.8 ▶ Questioner: … does this higher self have a physical vehicle or some type of vehicle like our physical vehicle? Does it have a bodily complex?

Ra: I am Ra. This is correct. The higher self is of a certain advancement within sixth density going into the seventh. After the seventh has been well entered the mind/body/spirit complex becomes so totally a mind/body/spirit complex totality that it begins to gather spiritual mass and approach the octave density. Thus the looking backwards is finished at that point.

To truly appreciate Ra’s response we must bear in mind that we are in fact spiritual Beings having a human experience. We all have a Higher Self that is based in the sixth dimension. This Higher Self reaches back to assist us in the third dimension before itself moving on to the seventh.

We can therefore infer from Ra’s response that the phrase ‘gather spiritual mass’ may also mean lose physical mass. Therefore physical manifestation may cease from the seventh or eight dimension. This is just my interpretation and I am subject to correction. Note that while there is a subtle difference between densities and dimensions as used by Ra, we use the terms interchangeably here.

​To conclude this discussion we can summarize the points that we’ve covered in this article. The transcendent reality is an unmanifested reality. It contains parallel universes, possibly in potential rather than manifestation. Our manifest reality emerges from the transcendent as one of these potential universes. Both the manifest and transcendent creation can be divided into different dimensions or densities according to frequency, or attributes.

Dawning Awareness – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Samadhi Painting Opening to Light by Christina Gage @ Fine Art America

Dawning Awareness

It’s 4 am. I’m awake and I’m torn between going back to sleep and writing this down. Something tells me I should bite the bullet and write it down.

If I were to summarize how I feel after having briefly experienced the Self, I’d say I feel freer, freed up, released.

Freer in every respect. And that includes freer in certain capacities. The capacity to feel happiness is an example. I never had that capacity before. I was “headed off at the pass” by the vasanas (core issues).

Another example is calmness. I used to say, “I feel calm now.” That implied that there was a state in which I felt calm and one where I did not and I went in and out of them.

But at this moment, I’m not going in and out of anything (knock on wood). Calmness has become, for the moment, a background condition, not even noticeable any more because it lacks differentiation. There is only calmness. I didn’t notice that until just now.

Swami Brahmananda said something once that I didn’t really understand at the time.

“The sins of many births are wiped out in a moment by one glance from the gracious eye of God.” (1)

If I were to put that now in my own vocabulary, I’d say: Many vasanas, including some pretty persistent ones, seem to be released as the result of one brief encounter with the Self, “the eye of God.” A more direct connection with the Self is created and many vasanas seem to lose their grip as a result.

I like these newly-encountered states of confidence, buoyancy, and hopefulness.  But I also recall another thing Brahmananda said:

“When through japam [saying the name] and meditation a little awakening comes, do not imagine you have achieved the end. Light! More Light! Onward! Onward! Attain God! Gain his vision! Talk to him!” (2)

Yes, more Light! Don’t stop here.

Now that you have my attention, now that I’ve test-driven the car, I like it. How can I buy it?

How do I “work” my process? I work it in two ways. The first way is by noticing. I maintain constant self-awareness as an important agreement with myself. I monitor my breath, bodily sensations, feelings, and thoughts as often and as continuously as I can.

When I get together with other people, my chief delight is in sharing our noticings and “comparing notes.”

The second way I’ve called on other occasions “dawning awareness.” Where the awareness comes from, I don’t know. All I know is that answers arise in me if I remain quiet and get out of the way. I just allow them to come up as insights, “Aha!” moments, intuitive knowing, etc.

With my writing, after I choose the topic, I still don’t know what I’ll write before I write it. The process works by allowing writing to happen by itself.

Finally, I’m beginning to dimly discern where this process is going. Given how much of me became accessible after the heart opening and now this encounter with the Self, I can extrapolate into the future.

It doesn’t become so difficult now to accept the statement that we are already masters who’ve consented to forget. More experiences like this  – what the Mother called “jumps” (3) – and I can imagine that untapped areas of myself will become accessible and come into play again.

There. I did it. The work of seeing how this altered constitution works is on-going, even at night.

Now can I go back to sleep?

Are Hindu Deities Extra-Terrestrials? – Narendra Mishra

Are Hindu Deities Extra-Terrestrials?

Are Hindu Deities Extra-Terrestrials?

Awakening Spark, 14/9/2018

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/are-hindu-deities-extra-terrestrials

Following my last article on Intelligent Extra Terrestrials (iET), I was asked by Jennifer if the Hindu Deity Vishnu was a Blue Avian- a type of highly advanced iET that is currently assisting with the Earth’s Ascension. I post my reply below, along with further explanation.
​NDM:

​Whereas the Creator God, Bramha is the creator of the transcendent and immanent aspects of this universe, and is manifested physically as the Black (W)Hole in the centre of the galaxy, Vishnu is the holder of the entire spectrum of probabilities- all timelines and parallel universes. He is completely transcendent. He does often take a physical form upon the creation where he exhibits His supernatural powers, and he is very often depicted as being Bluish/Indigo in complexion.

However, I do not think he is a Blue Avian. Rather, his vehicle, Garuda, is depicted as being a Humanoid with eagle-like features and is often depicted as also being blue. Garuda is a personage in his own right and often gets up to things on his own. He is also used very often by Vishnu as His intermediary. So it is very likely that the Blue Avians (either as individuals, or as the entire race) are Vishnu’s emissaries.

To elaborate further on these concepts, let me first begin by stating categorically that Hindus believe in ONE Supreme Being. The nature of this Being is pure Consciousness, or Chitta.

This Supreme Being wishing to experience itself then caused the multi-dimensional creation to appear from within Himself/Herself. Yet, each aspect of creation, down to every sub-atomic particle, contains the original Divine Consciousness of the ONE Supreme Being. Scientific researcher Micheal Talbot points to this very concept in his groundbreaking work, The Holographic Universe.

​Hindus, along with many other ancient traditions, recognise this truth and have named the essence of the ONE as it appears in its diverse forms. Hence, Agni is the name given for the Consciousness present in fire, Varun in water, Vayu in air, and so on.

Yet, the ancient Indian sages did not stop there. They recognised that the entire Milky Way galaxy was created by an aspect of the ONE Supreme Creator. They called this Consciousness of the Milky Way galaxy Bramha, and acknowledged that there were many different Bramhas throughout all of creation- one for each galaxy.

​In essence, the Creator’s role is to bring that Consciousness into physical matter and manifestation. However, there are many different possibilities that can exist when bringing energy into matter. The results of many experiments in quantum physics point to a multitude of variables affecting the result.

Thus, the Indian sages point to yet another ‘higher’ aspect of the ONE Supreme Creator that holds all of the possibilities in pure potential. Other schools of thought such as proposed by Physicist John Wheeler consider these potentials to be manifest in/as parallel universes. The essence of this aspect of the ONE Supreme Being that holds these possibilities is called Vishnu. For more information on these concepts please see my articles on The Science of Consciousness and The Chakras.

From the foregoing discussion then, we can see quite clearly that the Hindu Deities are not in fact iET. The Hindu Deities are qualifying names for the different aspects of the ONE Supreme Being who has brought all of creation into manifestation.

​iET are also aspects of this creation, and they are also imbued with the essence or Consciousness of the ONE. They may be much advanced as compared to Earth’s humanity, yet they are not Gods themselves.

What is the Transcendent Reality? – Part 1/2

Steve: Narendra and I differ in our use of the term “Transcendental,” but the difference is in words, not realities. All opinions are welcome here.

What is the Transcendent Reality? – Part 1/2

Awakening Spark, Sept. 17, 2018

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/what-is-the-transcendent-reality-part-12


In my previous post, “Are Hindu Deities Extra-Terrestrials,” I stated that the Hindu Deity, Vishnu, was the holder of the transcendent reality, while the Creator, Brahma, was the creator of the physical, manifest reality. In this post I’ll examine in more detail the concept of the transcendent reality.


The Oxford English dictionary defines ‘Transcendent’ as Beyond or above the range of normal or physical human experience, ‘the search for a transcendent level of knowledge’.

The opposite of transcendent is immanent, or that which is manifest to the senses. Most, if not all religions, speak of the existence of the Soul which transcends the physical body. For many religions, Heaven is supposed to lie in a transcendental realm, accessible to us as eternal Souls when we die.

​In many philosophies, this transcendent realm is given more importance than this Earthly or material realm. In fact, Vedantic thought posits that this physical world is Maya, an illusion. Yet, it feels real to our senses. What do the Indian sages mean when they refer to the world as being an illusion?

Perhaps the best description comes from the Greek philosopher Plato, in his famous allegory of the cave. In this description, a group of people are seated in a cave facing the wall. To their back, which they can’t see, is a light source that casts shadows of people and objects behind the group facing the wall. The people facing the wall see these moving shadows, and not realizing the source, thinks the shadows are real. This is Maya, illusion.

The allegory of the cave

Thus, the Indian sages alluded to the fact that this physical world of the senses is but shadows of the real world which is transcendent to our senses.

Interestingly, experiments in quantum physics seem to point to the existence of this transcendent realm. For more detail on the scientific evidence of this see my article The Science of Consciousness.

In quantum physics, the ordinary laws of time and space do not apply. It is known for example that a quantum object such as an electron can randomly disappear from existence (ie. to the senses) and reappear at any point in time and space. In quantum physics it is all about probabilities.

Vishnu is said to hold all probabilities within his Being. In fact, it is stated that in every pore of Vishnu lies an entire universe. These universes exist in parallel, each holding the result of particular permutations and combinations of existence.

In the Sri Ramacaritamanas of Saint Tulsidas, we get a beautiful example of this in the story of the enlightened sage Kakbhusundi. Through a series of events this sage was born as a crow near the palace of Sri Rama, one of the avatars of Vishnu. While still a toddler, Sri Rama saw the bird-sage Kakbhusundi and stretched out his hand to grab him and put him in His mouth, as toddlers are wont to do.

​Relating this episode to Garuda, the sage said,

“Listen, King of Birds. Inside His belly I beheld multitudinous universes with many strange spheres each more wonderful than the rest, with myriads of Brahmas (Creator Gods) and Rudras, countless stars, suns and moons; numberless Lokapalas (guardians of the spheres)…

“And listen dear Garuda, Sri Rama’s parents, as well as His brothers, were all different in each universe. In each such universe I witnessed the descent (avatar) of Sri Rama as well as the infinite variety of His childish sports.”

The sage Kakbhusundi was blessed to be able to witness firsthand the various parallel universes that exist within the body of the transcendental Vishnu.

Several of the greatest minds in physics, including John Wheeler and Stephen Hawking postulated theories of parallel universes. These universes are transcendent to our physical senses. They exist in the transcendent realm.

Money Is Love – by Kat @ Golden Age of Gaia

Artist Corinne Reignier

Money Is Love – Sept. 30, 2018

I’ve asked Kat to share her writing with us. Welcome aboard, Kat!

To introduce myself, I’m a writer.

But I’m a writer who suffers from excruciating shyness. When Steve first asked me to consider writing for his beautiful Golden Age of Gaia, I delayed and deflected my answer until I hoped the question would go away. Fear, fear, fear, and that’s the truth of it.

But then, Steve, undaunted, took matters into his own hands and yesterday reprinted in GAoG, my “Letter to Archangel Michael,” that I had written for Patrick DaCosta’s IDC website.

Oh, my goodness. What an avalanche of support ensued. I am unceasingly grateful to all who wrote in and gave their thumbs up to my letter. You heard me and I sure heard you.

My favorite aspect about writing is that it connects hearts. If I’m writing from my heart, then other hearts will connect with my words and then the world is not so terrifying. And that’s what happened with AAMichael’s letter.

Steve sure is a sneaky Pete Editor-in-Chief. Now he’s got me writing for him and I couldn’t be more delighted.

In full disclosure, my legal name isn’t “Kat.” It’s my birthname. Or more exactly, my birthname is “Kathryn.”

But when I found “Kathryn” some twenty years ago, I knew that, if I’d kept that name, I’d call myself “Kat.” So my nom-de-plume is “Kat,” which makes me very happy.

I thought for a first article, I’d continue the conversation I began in my letter to AAMichael—a meditation on money. More precisely, flooding this planet with money and it’s about bloody time.

I cannot take credit for the title of this series of articles. Money Is Love is the title of a book written by Barbara Wilder. But the title perfectly outlines how I wish to write on this fascinating subject: Money and Prosperity.

Because of family issues with money, I never felt I deserved any. I never felt I deserved crumbs. I never felt I deserved to be alive. It has taken decades of inner work to get to this stage, which is, I believe I deserve EVERYTHING wonderful, and I believe everyone deserves everything wonderful. I’m with Steve, we all deserve a world that works for EVERYONE.

I didn’t come to this conclusion naturally. I’ve been studying Abundance and reading Prosperity writers for many years and I highly recommend them: Catherine Ponder, Florence Scovel Shinn, Wallace Wattles, Charles Fillimore and Barbara Wilder, to name a few.

There isn’t one person I know who doesn’t have a dramatic relationship with money. We all do. And our relationship with Money is decidedly unbalanced.

I’ve sat in mansions where families, who had multi-millions in the bank, constantly worried about having enough and worked themselves to death to make more in order to keep at bay their unreasonable fear of lack. And I’ve sat in humble abodes where families, who don’t even have a bank account, are grateful for and bless their abundance.

It’s not our fault that we have a suspicious relationship with money. Money is a fake thing creating the illusion of plenty or lack and we instinctively know it. We’ve been told by Masters and Angels, Gods and Goddesses, that we are Multidimensional Light Beings who can create anything.

Anything: Houses, universes, rocket ships. If we think it, it can be so. But such is not the case here in 3D Gaia. We’ve been told – and I believe – that we descended from higher-light realms, for various individual reasons, into 3D forgetfulness, to play a game of limitation.

Where we came from there is no money. If you can create anything you want or can think of, money is superfluous.

But in this dimension, money was cabal-created in order to divide and conquer humanity and, good grief, did they succeed. They created money in order to create a lack mentality. In order to create a “Them that have and them that don’t” society. In order to create a 1%, greedily controlling all the wealth and power on Earth while the rest of us live in lack, debt, never enough, unable to afford education, healthcare, retirement, food, housing, clothing, etc.

People shrivel up from lack of money. No one can achieve their best when they’re frightened of never having enough. Lack has driven countless people to suicide.

The cabal created money, weaponized it, and then use their money-weapon continuously and viciously to beat angelic Humanity into slavery.

So consider the brilliance of this simple idea, created by those who’ve been working to defeat the cabal for hundreds of years: Flood the planet with money and wash away, instantaneously, all the controls the cabal has on it.

It’s genius.

—Hence the idea of the Reval and Global Currency Reset (RV, GCR.) The revaluation of currencies that, at the moment, are worthless, but after the RV become extremely valuable.

—The re-introduction of the gold-standard (GCR) insuring that every piece of money, paper, coin and bond has true value, backed by precious metals, and not just fiat paper the cabal prints whenever it feels like it.

—And best of all, GESARA: The Global Economic Security And Reformation Act, which would, among other marvelous things, implement a global jubilee of debt forgiveness for all: Individuals, businesses, countries—all.

Imagine joyous students who no longer have to carry the crushing burden of thousands, or hundreds of thousands of dollars, of educational debt.
People who no longer have to carry the unbearable burden of medical debt.

Or killing mortgages.

Or excruciating credit card debt.

Or impossible-to-get-out-from-under tax debt.

Imagine the poorest countries that owe billions of dollars in loans—forgiven.

ANY debt you can think of—forgiven.

Imagine all the marvelous things that can be done with oodles and googols of endless money: Cleaning up the planet, the waters, air, Earth, healing Humanity and Gaia’s Kingdoms, Peace on Earth, Good will to all, etc.

Imagine the happiness factor on Gaia when THAT happens. The joy. The celebration. The relief. The love. The explosion of creativity. The FREEDOM.

You bet the cabal doesn’t want that to happen. Under a tsunami of money, the cabal is neutralized in one fell swoop and all the darkness and despair they’ve used to control Gaia and Humanity for millennia is swept away on a tidal wave of PLENTY.

It’s an absolutely brilliant plan and everyone I know on this path is ready for it to happen.

So.

Money.

Let’s discuss.

Next time.

Never Expected It – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Symbols for healing by Toni Carmine Salerno @ Blue Angel Gallery

****

Never Expected It

What I wanted to report today was that I now see the attraction of asceticism to the desert fathers.

I think it was all about coming to total stillness and silence. I don’t think they would have thought that, in that stillness and silence, the Self would be known. (1) I don’t think they thought in terms of the Self. I think they would have looked upon their asceticism as the perfection of their soul through detachment and the enduring of suffering and sacrifice for Christ’s sake.

Nevertheless I believe they were trying to achieve the very same silence and stillness that we aim to attain today.

Asceticism was their withdrawal from the distractions and noise of the world.

Remember that the vibrations are much higher today than they were in 300 AD. I believe that, through our spiritual practices, whatever they may be (as long as they’re sincere), we’re able to attain what would have been very difficult for them back then.

Whatever the case, in that stillness that the desert fathers sought, the “streamers” (messages, feelings) sent out by (radiating from) the Self can be better felt, known, and followed to their Source.

What I discovered was that the Self had always been there. It had always been emitting subtle signals. I just wasn’t trained to pick them up, didn’t pay attention to them, didn’t trip over one or two of them, and so on, until now.

One of the reasons we as a society don’t pick them up is that most of us have too much mental chatter or noise going on; (2) skittering from one voice to another, our attention becomes gross rather than subtle. The “streamers” of the Self, to borrow Matthew’s word, are too subtle for a rough mind to pick up.

Another reason is that we allow ourselves to get easily redirected, deflected, or distracted.  We don’t stay with one thing very long. We want more, better, and different.

A third reason is that we attach to lower-vibrational pastimes, practices, and products. Examples of this in feelings would be anger, hatred, resentment, jealousy, gossiping, etc.

I didn’t know that I’d arrive at the Self when I followed my dismay down into my heart at Xenia. I simply knew that being at the (retreat) center meant I had all the time in the world to get to the bottom of it and I set out to do that.

No one was with me. No one was asking for my attention so I went for it.

I was not on a spiritual quest. I was on a healing journey, for what I thought was a vasana (or core issue).

I expected to come upon the original incident below the vasana. I was floored when I came upon the Self itself.  Did I take a wrong … errr, right turn somewhere?

I may not have mentioned what it appeared like. I saw a lustrous, formless light at the end of the last ten feet of the tunnel I was following into the depths of my heart.  It was white with a very soft pink tint. (3)

It wasn’t what it looked like that mattered. It was the divine states that emanated from it – innocence, sweetness, and purity. These were consistent with the slight pink tinge to it. (4) What I felt was more important than what I saw. It was so angelic, I was mesmerized.

My Self was dismayed that I was not doing better. That distinctly had the flavor of my Mother’s words. I wouldn’t doubt that she was part of this.

I recall that my Mother had only to look at me with a dismayed or disappointed look – she didn’t need to say a word – and I would stop doing what I was doing and be a “good boy.” She was very subtle and gentle; Hindus would call her “sathwic.”

So I do see a resonance here. When I feel dismayed in the morning, I hear myself say, “Oh, well….” just as I would back then. And then I’d pick myself up and get back to work, resolving not to do that again.

I have no independent, self-generated reason for feeling dismay or saying those words (“Oh, well….”) these days. There’s nothing I’m doing – OK, nothing of any consequence – that I can think of. This response is not coming from any present consideration. It’s an historical leftover, residue, a vasana.

I’d say that was a pretty good way to get my attention – radiate dismay to my heart.  I begin to see the possible picture now. I’ll bet someone was using a vasana (dismay) to lure me on.

It’s a pretty good lure to get me to go inwards.  It led to a very different endpoint to any other journey inwards I’ve ever taken – say, in the process of sourcing or completing a vasana.

I’ve always said that the Self lies under our vasanas. This seems like a pretty convincing proof of that.

I don’t think I need to ask Michael if all this is so. My hunches about these things have usually proven correct in themselves or else are inspired by him or someone else.

What you’re hearing is me in a process of self-revelation or transparency. Many people believe it’s best to be private. I took a different tack decades ago. There is very little about me that’s private and those are simply the things that most people keep private.

I know myself by sharing the results of my awareness work, my explorations in consciousness.

Mine is a process of unfolding awareness, which leads to realization, which may include the opening of the heart but may also include visions and peak experiences.

Mine is a gradual path to Ascension, what the Mother called “another jump, and another jump, and another jump.” (5) All the “jumps” I’ve had over the years have been recorded on this blog.  We’ve walked together every step of the way.

Footnotes

(1) I call what I came upon the “Self”….  I honestly don’t know what to call it. It doesn’t come with a label. Shall I call it “My Higher Version (MHV)”?  It comes identified with and accompanied by the divine states and it’s that we’re very much aware of. Bliss, ecstacy, love, joy, gratitude.

I responded to the sight of it with awe. But I responded to its immaculateness (purity, innocence, and naturalness) – the divine states – with reverence.

(2) I strongly shy away from mundane conversations now. Engaging with them seems to mean abandoning this space and I no longer want to.

(3) You may recall that the small golden star in my vision – which is what I was looking at – was a bright gold.  I’ve no doubt that the formless Self can appear any way it wishes.  For more on this golden star, see “The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment – Ch. 13 – Epilogue,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2011/08/13/the-purpose-of-life-is-enlightenment-ch-13-epilogue/

(4) In our triflame, we are the pink flame; the Mother the blue; and the Father the gold.

(5) Divine Mother: You are embracing your multidimensional talents yourself. So in that way it is very abrupt. It is the feeling, “I am not the same person as I was yesterday.” You may not know how or why, but it is very clear and very line-in-the-sand.

Steve Beckow: But that is not Sahaja Samadhi, Mother, is it? When does Sahaja Samadhi occur?

DM: It occurs with a more gradual awakening and lifting up. So there is the abrupt “I am not the same,” then there is the working and the anchoring, the integration, then there is another jump, and another jump, and another jump. And you don’t know it — well, some of you do — but you are leap-frogging. And then you will be there.

SB: Now, are those jumps equivalent to sub-planes?

DM: You can think of them as sub-planes, dimensional sub-planes, yes. (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans,” channeled by Linda Dillon, July 10, 2014, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/07/12/the-divine-mother-we-are-creating-a-new-species-of-humans/.)

The Challenge of the Times

Steve is away on a retreat from Sept. 14-19.

We repost a number of our favorite articles on spirituality and financial wayshowing.

“Ego” is a Latin word meaning “I.” We use it today to refer to one of the many selves we have, a self that’s constructed of thoughts, which is not permanent, and whose survival all our efforts are bent towards.

The purpose of life is to know ourself, but the self that we know is the soul, also called the Atman by Hindus and the Christ by Christians.

This same Self is itself an offspring, part, spark (these words are all metaphorical) of the Supreme Self. Jesus characterized it as a relationship between the Son and the Father. The Self, Atman or Christ is the Father individuated.

The Self is said to reside in the spiritual heart, on the other side of the hridayam or heart aperture, which is usually closed.

But the ego resides only in our thoughts. Life is a progressive unveiling of the “I” that we are, moving from no consciousness of self at all, to self-consciousness, to awareness of the soul/Self, to awareness of the Supreme Self/God.

We leapfrog over one less adequate sense of self to another more adequate sense, and then to a more adequate sense than that. We do so by realization. We realize the more umbrageous sense of the Self that we are until we at last “become” that One Self of all. I say “become” because we always were that One Self. We just didn’t know it.

When we disappear as a separate Self and are reunited with the Father or Parabrahman, (1) we’ve achieved the goal of life.

We have a permanent interest in the self that we have and are. Whatever is “I” is what holds our attention, lifetime after lifetime. The depth of our knowledge will vary but the object of our knowledge – the self at whatever level we conceive of it at any moment in time – remains the same.

We often speak of a “false grid” of beliefs that characterize Third Dimensionality and a life determined by the ego. What are some of those false beliefs? If I had my choice of the top three, I’d say separation, survival, and scarcity.

We think that we’re separate beings but it turns out that we’re all One. This sense of separation sets us up for the errors we commit out of believing the next two concepts.

The second concept is survival. We think that this separate being that we are won’t survive death and so we try to extend our lives in any way we can. We focus our attention on seeing that this being and everything it identifies with (that is, “me” and “mine”) survives. It identifies itself with our body, family, house, car, job, etc.

But there’s really no need to ensure the survival of this being. We’re eternal – always were, are, and will be. We never die although we doff this body as we would a suit of clothes.

The third concept is scarcity. We think that everything in our world is scarce and that, as separate beings trying to survive, we must compete for scarce resources. In fact, in the higher dimensions where we’re headed, everything is infinitely plentiful and created by thought. There’s no lack and no scarcity. And I imagine there would be no scarcity here either if we but changed our way of seeing things.

The separative ego accomplishes survival in the midst of perceived scarcity by engaging in the self-serving bias. That way of being magnifies the self and minimizes others, glorifies itself and detracts from others. It attributes all successes to itself and all failures to others. It embraces all victories and disavows responsibility for all losses.

It judges and dominates others and avoids judgment and domination of itself. It blames others and sidesteps blame of itself.

It builds around the being a constructed self or mask, sells its performances to others, and seeks validation. It manages its image by such strategies as dressing for success, looking out for number one, talking it up, etc.

It creates a story about itself, bending history to the needs of the moment and rehearsing its story wherever possible until the details are polished and arranged to give the desired impression of success, victory, influence, etc.

The ego lives at the peripheries of life. It traffics in extremes, drama, and histrionics.

The Self lives in the centre, in the middle, in the heart and has no truck or trade with extremes, drama, or histrionics.

One who lives in the center is usually characterized by balance, serenity, joy and the other divine qualities.

One who lives on the peripheries and in the extremes usually forfeits these qualities but usually isn’t seeking them anyways. The person living on the peripheries and in the extremes is usually seeking money, sensual gratification, and influence.

The ego tends to be selfish; the Self tends to be selfless. When we hear someone blowing their own horn, boasting about their accomplishments, puffing themselves, it usually means that they see themselves as this body, together with its thoughts and feelings, and probably nothing else.

To do so is to take an empirical-materialist view of life that only what we can touch, see, hear and feel is real. Such a view is not enough to allow us to realize our Self and therefore not enough to achieve the purpose of life.

It’s up to us as lightworkers and starseeds to go beyond the ego, with its self-serving bias. It’s up to us to recognize when we’re in the grip of the ego or serving its need for survival. To do so is not an easy thing. Most people do actually believe that they are this body, its senses, and its mind and nothing else. And so long as they do so, they’re concerned with survival.

But that’s the challenge of the times nevertheless – to move beyond the narrow view and to focus more and more deeply on the heart, the centre, the soul. The challenge is also to live by what the Buddha called the Middle Way of balance and moderation.

There has never been a better time to accomplish these spiritual goals in life than now. Never has it been easier. Never has so much conspired to assure our success in these efforts.

We have to recognize the call of the ego, the cry of the limited, constructed self and set it aside in preference to the heart’s most distinct call, which is love.

Be Still and Know that I Am God

Thanks to MB’s generous gift, I’ll be away on a five-day, mostly-silent retreat. Back on the 20th; back online on the 21st.
I’ll be sitting with the choan: “Be still and know that I am God.”  (1)I’ve prescheduled articles for your enjoyment, so

don’t be surprised if you see my handle.

Could folks please hold back email for that time so I might come back to a clean slate?  That would be such a blessing. Thank you.

I’m watching myself at a very minute level because I want to solve this probably-insoluble question I have of: What motivates human behavior? (2)  I think I’m already “in retreat” though I haven’t left Vancouver yet.

I thought for ages that there was one motivator only – a prime motivator – and I had to discover it. I did discover it, but let me return to that later.

Nowadays I think a lot of things motivate human behavior.

Thoughts and feelings are prime candidates. And they do a dance with each other. Sometimes thoughts motivate and sometimes feelings.

Here’s one example from my everyday life.

I discovered that I did not have my favorite breakfast drink on hand. And immediately my perception of my kitchen as being amply stocked changed to a perception of it being poorly stocked.  Instead of seeing what was in the fridge, I saw what was not.

Gaps in the fridge that I’d been ignoring, planning to shop later today, now became evidence of poverty.  I resolved to go shopping as soon as I could. Here my thoughts are the motivator of behavior.

And my feeling state changed from happy to sad.  Bang. It happened so fast I couldn’t say when.  It was like a change of channel. That’s how fast our reactions to our own vasanas (or core issues) are. We may as well be chameleons.

And it was out of repugnance to the feeling of dismay that I then resolved to take action. Both dismay and repugnance were my motivators in this instance.

So both the thought that my kitchen was in a wretched state and the feelings of dismay and repugnance motivated me.

All the time I am the “me” that’s being motivated: The Actor, the Self, the Christ, the Atman, the pearl of great price, the individuated God.  I am the one who wills and the body acts.  (3) (For a metaphor, think Ironman.)

I’d expect that sensations in the external world would motivate me as well, such as accidentally putting my finger on an element, jumping into the cold ocean, or being caught in a sudden downpour.

All of these are stimuli. All of them are motivators. So it isn’t just one and not the others. The Actor takes in stimuli from all receptors, internal and external, from all sources really, and reflects, and decides. (4)

And what we choose to focus on influences the outcome as well, as do what we bring to bear when we focus on it, the further thoughts it gives rise to, any explosion of vasanas, etc. All of these stimuli are released or responded to by our various faculties and we react by making a decision to act (or not).

That clears it up for me.  We’re motivated by many different stimuli. As you’d expect, standing here on the other side of that quandary and looking backwards, it seems like an obvious answer.

But it wasn’t obvious to one hellbent to find a “prime motivator.”

Now let me return to that quest. Did I find a prime motivator? Oh yes.

Looking for a prime motivator led me to a heart opening and the finding of the prime motivator of higher-dimensional love.

And it led me also to see human behavior through a realistic lens. In a freewill universe, it has to be that we respond to an infinite variety of stimuli.

These considerations are all associated with the Third/Fourth Dimension.  In the Fifth and higher, the love and bliss we’ll experience will wipe considerations away.

It won’t be that they’ll all have been answered, although I suppose they will in retrospect. It’s that they’ll simply disappear, drowned in an ocean of love. They will be no more.

Their vibrational level will not permit them to exist on the higher-vibrational level, as Matthew Ward explains here:

“It can be no other way – simply, [because] this is the physics that governs life in this universe.

“As Earth continues apace into successively higher planes, nothing with low vibrations in any form – physical bodies, subversive plans, theft, dishonesty, unjust laws and imprisonment, bigotry, cruel customs and deeds – can survive.” (5)

I’ve certainly experienced the wiping away of all concerns in the inner tsunami of love so I can vouch for that outcome.

But … we are apparently in the upper Fourth at the moment, where there are still degrees, conditions, different stimuli, a raft of concerns, etc., all vying for our attention.

I now see that I am motivated by a slew of different stimuli, internal and external, all competing for my eye and ear. In the next five days, I’m going to slow that whole process down and see what survives.

“Be still and know that I am God.”

(4) I’m led right back to papers I was writing in the mid-Seventies on this statement being definitive of human behavior: I perceive stimuli; I conceive it; I reflect upon it; and I decide my course of action.
