Giving and Generosity – Part 2/2

(Concluded from Part 1, yesterday.)

Getting back to generosity as a divine state, I know from experience that divine states eventuate – they end up – in love. (1)

I think the Mother is saying: Here’s an easy way to begin exercising your muscle of generosity and clearing the path to transformative love.

In my experience, generosity blends into love.  There isn’t a hard and fast border between them. I’d like to say that generosity invites love. Certainly love comes up with generosity: two for the price of One.

It’s this love that we’ll all need to make wise decisions as financial stewards of the Mother later.

So it isn’t just a case of generosity arising in us because it’s something nice or a pleasant feeling. It’s all that but much more.

It’s the basic curriculum of a financial steward: Generosity 101 as preparation for Humanitarian Philanthropy 202. That I think is what the Mother intends.

So do look inside and fan the flame of generosity you find. Please donate to the upkeep of the blog, using the button below.

See it, if you will, as part of building a generous world, one whose stewards are outfitted with the right qualities to administer a global donor economy.

Love offerings from others, who like us are also in a receiving position, are sincerely welcomed as well.

Footnotes

(1) Let me clarify. I know from experience that generosity blends into transformative love in the opened heart – the heart after a 4th-chakra heart opening, such as we as a planet are gradually going through at this moment.

I no longer am aware of what generosity results in before such an event.

Moreover, I’ve lost interest in what my prior condition was (as SaLuSa predicted long ago). No, I’m not ascended. I’m just a little bit more opened up than I was.

Giving and Generosity – Part 1/2

Giving and generosity are not always the same. They’re often different.

Everyone can give. But some people do because they feel they have to. Or should.

In my view, no disrespect meant, if we felt forced or obliged to give, that wouldn’t fall under “generosity.”

It isn’t what the Divine Mother, in my opinion, wants us to do. I think she wants us to light the fires of generosity.

The Mother has asked the GAoG team to allow ourselves (among other lightworkers and groups) to be used  to light that fire. Here she discusses it:

Divine Mother: You have agreed that you are on, can we say, the receiving end.

Steve: So our allowing ourselves to be in a position to need to ask for help is used as a means to get people to open up?

Divine Mother: To express gratitude, generosity, unity and to express what is valuable to them.

Steve: So that is what the spiritual meaning of this is. That we serve the purpose of igniting people’s generosity or inspiring it.

Divine Mother: That is correct. You are the catalysts. (1)

Tough assignment.  But OK. The fire must be lit.

Why is that?

Generosity is a divine state of consciousness. There’s immense value in entering into it – as a state – in and of itself.

But, leaving that aside for the moment (I’ll return to it in Part 2), we’re also the Mother’s financial stewards and we’ll be administering a significant stream of funds in her post-Reval New Earth.

I don’t think we’ll get very far if we’re giving with suspicion, resentment, or worry about ourselves.

At some point, whether we know it or not, we’ll have to light the fires of our own generosity to do the job we’ll face.

It’s there inside us but dormant.  The Mother wants GAoG to serve as the occasion for awakening it again.

If we have an inner block against giving generously, then lighting our fires may require some inner work, now or later. The cost is lower now.

I’m seeing things from the other side now, playing this role in her plan. And I do see the sense of it.

So please, use this as an occasion to light the fires of generosity. Press the “Donate” button below and give to the upkeep of the blog – on a one-time basis or, better still, on a monthly basis. Start in on generous giving but don’t stop with us. The Mother is using many other lightworkers in the same way as us.

Quite a Ways Down the Road – Steve Beckow

Quite a Ways Down the Road

Sages for millennia have called the Creator, Preserver and Transformer of the world of matter (mater, Mother) the Divine Mother.

Here’s Lao Tzu for instance:

“Nameless indeed is the source of creation [the Father],
But things have a mother and she has a name.”  (1)

And Sri Yukestwar Giri, guru of Paramahansa Yogananda:

“‘It is the Spirit of God [the Holy Spirit or Divine Mother] that actively sustains every form and force in the universe; yet he [the Father] is transcendental and aloof in the blissful uncreated void beyond the worlds of vibratory phenomena,’ Master explained.”(2)

When the Mother speaks through Linda Dillon, she identifies herself as the Mother as well. (3)

This though there is no gender at the levels of reality we’re talking about. That leads me to believe that it’s a teaching tool.

They’re represented as the exact opposite of human psychological stereotypes.  In psychology, the male is seen as active and the woman as passive. In spirituality, the Heavenly Male is seen as passive and the Divine Female as active.

In Hinduism, especially, a literature has grown up that incorporates divine consorts and sacred partnerships, all deriving from the original coupleship of the Father and the Mother, the Source and the Creator.

It puts the journey of life into terms we can understand and identify with.

My vision in 1987 showed me that we’re embarked on a common journey from God the Father to God the Father. God the Mother’s material world is our school where we learn our true identity until, having seen it, we experience the moment of enlightenment that constitutes our graduation.

At that moment God meets God.  God the Child, having been birthed and raised to awareness by God the Mother, reunites with God the Father, who is the All.

That, I’m told, is quite a ways down the road….

A Matter That Simple – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Mariana Kalacheva

***

A Matter That Simple

I once joked with Michael that I’d groan and moan and complain the whole way and then want all the glory afterwards.

He said, yes, you do want your pound of flesh.

Pound of flesh….

What kind of behavior are we discussing? Because I think it’s one of the ways of the world.  Especially now, in these chaotic times.

I’d call it “childish” if I were to boil it down to a word. Only a child wants a pound of flesh.

Another way of saying what I personally think the world is lacking right now would be to say “adult behavior.”

Adult behavior is not attached to drama. It doesn’t go to extremes.

It doesn’t exact its pound of flesh. It’s attached to a successful outcome, as win/win as possible.

Adult behavior prepares us for interacting with our star family as they arrive on-planet. (1) I predict that they won’t meet with folks enamored of drama.

Adult behavior does a cost/benefit analysis when it’s about to blow a gasket. Do the potential costs I could incur outweigh the benefits I think I’ll get? This is coming from a career gasket-blower, by the way.

Adult behavior processes the vasana rather than projecting the strong feelings onto others. “You made me mad!” Nope. No pass on that one. Especially not in these confused and confusing times.

You made you mad by responding the way you did to a triggered vasana (core issue). You responded angrily. That’s a choice. It’s a long road back from anger but it doesn’t change the fact that getting angry is a choice.

Process the vasana, instead of projecting it. Ask yourself where does the strong feeling originate? What incident in my past history has triggered this?

Take the first picture that comes along. “Be” with it. Experience the feelings through to completion and the vasana will lift – temporarily. Rinse and repeat as necessary. It’s just a matter of retraining ourselves.

This is adult behavior, in my opinion. Projecting one’s anger onto another is not.

The scenario I can’t get out of my mind is being yelled at: “I don’t have any vasanas.”

Say what?

Finally, adult behavior is loving, compassionate, and cooperative. It knows that a higher-dimensional world, a world that works for everyone, is coming.

No matter how we might feel and be as individuals, feeling and being this way as a world is the object of this journey. Returning the world to peace and harmony is the task at hand. And this calls for us all to act as adults.

I’m asking us to leave “childish” behavior behind, no matter where we live. We need “adult,” loving, compassionate behavior in a chaotic world.

It all boils down to a matter that simple.

Good Work – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

🤎

Good Work

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

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

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

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

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

Hit the pause button.

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

But my story doesn’t fit the reality.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Footnotes

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

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

We can use that knowledge in the following way.

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

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

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

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

Shelter Of The Sacred by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

💎

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

Concluded from Part 1, yesterday.)

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I will when I retire.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Later….

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

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

Footnotes

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

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

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

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

Divine Mother: Slightly, yes.

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

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

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

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

Michael on truncating in general:

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

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

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

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

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

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

Claiming Our Divine Authority: What Will It Take? -Part 1/2

I’m beginning to see the tie-in between divine qualities, states of consciousness, and contexts.

They’re different words pointing at the same thing.

I’ve experienced mastery, abundance, and peace, which are divine qualities, as states of consciousness.

They were expansive, transformative – certainly higher states than ordinary consciousness.

Werner Erhard calls the same phenomenon a “context,” something that includes and involves everything. Health and peace are examples of contexts. I experienced the states of consciousness as contexts as well.

Love is an example of a divine quality (1) which is a state of consciousness and a context.  I know that for a certainty.

It may turn out that claiming my divine authority is also a state of consciousness and a context. I’m in the process of finding out.

How do I know something is all three – a divine quality, state of consciousness, and context?

By the transformative impact living in that state of consciousness has on me. Take love for instance.

When I’m in the experience of higher-dimensional love, I’m a completely-different person. It’d be as if I were in constant orgasm. Bliss, bliss, bliss, if only it would be everlasting (and it will be someday).

I notice that, with the experience of every other state of consciousness (mastery, abundance, etc.), I ended up in transformative love. I expect to end up in transformative love when I experience my divine authority as well.

I get glimpses. These present to me as a rock-solid confidence.  In other words, just as I experienced purity and innocence while gazing on the Self, so also here I experience rock-solid certainty and confidence while “feeling” or glimpsing my divine authority.

Because you and I are divine, right? So it isn’t as if we’re feeling into illusion. We’re feeling into the truth of our divinity, which needs to be settled with us before we experience our authority.

(Concluded in Part 2, tomorrow.)

Footnotes

(1) Apparently it’s actually more than a divine quality; it is the Divine. I haven’t experienced the truth of that statement yet.

For convenience only I include it among the qualities.

Does My World Work? – Steve Beckow

Yogini With Flowers @ Lasha Mutual Fine Art (Dakini As Art)

 💫

Does My World Work?

Am I creating in my own life a world that works for everyone?

No, I’m not.

I can still be grumpy and territorial and impatient. I snarl at bad bus-line behavior.  I tell people trying to sneak on for free where the front door of the bus is. Cosmic policeman.

Nevertheless, I do know how the world is when it does work for everyone. I have that one skill, that one string to my bow.

I spent months in that space. (1) It’s a space of Love. I hope capitalizing it will make my point. It’s a higher form of love than many people have experienced, apparently.

Many of us might have experienced it for a few moments in a peak experience. And then it’s gone and just a memory. I had a long-enough visit that I could take note of it and write up my experience of it.

I can still summon the Love up from my heart but … and here come my excuses.

What is higher-dimensional Love like? I’ve often compared ordinary love to Tang and higher-dimensional Love to freshly-squeezed Florida orange juice.  But that comparison really doesn’t do it justice (I nearly said, “juice-tice”).  It’s way beyond that.

Being in that Love is being in an ascended state. Fifth to seventh-dimensional I was told by Michael and the Arcturians.

In that state, a person wants nothing else than more Love. They wouldn’t lift a finger against another person. All they want to do is to share the Love and have other people enter into the the flow of it.

I feel like I have an above-top-secret secret. “Pssst! I know where Shangra-la is.” (In the heart.)

But it’s true. If everyone drowned in the Ocean of Love or fell into the Lake of Bliss, such an Ascension of consciousness would produce a world that works for everyone. And we will do these things. That’s my firm prediction. (3)

Meanwhile, creating a world that works for everyone as nearly as I can in my own life seems like a very productive experiment to run.

I loved Adamu’s distinction between self-responsible and other-responsible. (2) If I’m to be self-responsible, rather than waiting for others to do it for me (create a world that works), then I need to make the world around me work.

Ready for the Historic – Steve Beckow

Ready for the Historic

As you know, I need to use this time to sandpaper some of my rougher qualities if I’m to be of use later on.

Part of an Ascension ethnography is the cleansing or purification phase, known to all terrestrial students of enlightenment.

However, things have changed now with the rising energies, it seems. Vasanas that would have remained deeply buried appear to be rising to the surface all over the place, like calving glaciers.

I know they’re coming up fast and thick for me.

And all of it is arising to be swept away, as Michael explained in May 2019:

“Everything that has need to be eliminated, everything that has need to be relinquished, everything that needs to be healed in this cesspool that we call ‘chaos’ has need to come to the surface.

“Otherwise – and this has happened many, many times in human history – there is a belief, there is a healing, an accommodation, a remedy, and then the human collective tends to think, ‘Okay, now it is cleaned up. Now it is healed. Now it is done.’

“But the core issues [i.e., the vasanas] – of the collective, and of course of the individuals, have not been addressed, and therefore it simply settles in and it festers.

“In this part of the infinite, eternal unfoldment of our Mother’s Plan, it all has need to be surfaced so that this subtle and actual festering until it again boils over cannot happen. It is simply, in your time and in the Mother’s time, the juncture at which this has to be healed. So it continues to rise to the surface.” (1)

I can live with that.

I can give you an example of a core issue that arose for me in the course of working away at something this morning. I was imagining talking to an employee at Michaelangelo & Partners and I said, at the end, “We’re good.”

And I suddenly found myself doubled up in pain and tears.

Never when I was growing up was I told I was good.  I succumbed to the criticism and blame from the male side of our family and took upon myself the identity that I was bad. Hey, this is common, garden-variety family stuff.

To hear the word, “We’re good” come out of my mouth was like someone announcing I’d won the lottery. Words I’d never heard before.

This is a core issue. I’m still weeping as I write.

In the course of reparenting myself, I’m coaxing my wounded Child to come back across the line that divides people, in their own minds, into “good” and “bad.” And there is resistance born of fear.

I can tell you for a positive fact, on my own authority, that we are at essence pure and innocent. Xenia showed me that. (2)

So we are good. Unwittingly I’d just expressed a deep and transcendent truth: We are good. At essence we are pure and innocent, the essence of goodness.

Goodness has been in disrepute since the Sixties but it may be time to bring it back again.

It’s territory that I haven’t ventured into for so long my mouth is mentally agape. In my own mind, I’m a bad man dressed up to look good. And why am I bad? Ask Dad.

It’s these core issues we need to clear. It’s these that Michael describes as being raised to the surface to be taken from us once and for all. (3)

So I’m sandpapering myself, grateful that we have a bit more time before anything big happens.  I want to be ready for the historic.

(3) For me to consider myself to be a “good” person is for me to have transcended a huge core issue.  It looks so simple, so innocuous. But it’s like trying to push an iceberg.

Most of any vasana (core issue) remains unexpressed, hidden like the better part of an iceberg.  Only rarely do we fully express ourselves in the course of experiencing one through to completion.

I had the privilege of being able to do that on a four-month resident fellowship at Cold Mountain Institute in 1975-76 (I believe).  It was a carousel of week-long workshops in growth and spirituality with an ongoing encounter group in the evenings.

But most people don’t have that opportunity and so, as Michael pointed out, most of our issues remain uncleared, lurking below the surface, awaiting being triggered once again.

Archangel Michael on the Time of Separation – Steve Beckow

Hydrangeas (Photo: VK Chernyak/Shutterstock)

Archangel Michael on the Time of Separation

While researching leadership, I came across this passage from Archangel Michael, in which he discusses the “time of separation.”

Recently we heard Adamu say that timelines are diverging. SaLuSa discussed divine deadlines and a time of separation perhaps a decade ago.

And now Michael explains (generally) when and how this separation will happen.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, July 22, 2016.

Steve: What do you mean by time of separation, Lord?  SaLuSa discussed it years ago.

AAM: When you made the collective decision to ascend as one, it was spiritually a very mature and evolved decision. …

That does not mean that, yes, in the infinite and eternal existence of the Mother, she will wait forever because this is the unfoldment of her Plan. This is what the penetration with all of our voices into each and every one of you is about.

There will be those who choose to leave, to abandon their physical forms rather than ascend in physical form.

Steve: That is what you mean by separation – leave?

AAM: That is what I mean and I do not mean being spun off into an alternate world or Earth or Gaia or planet. I mean simply, abandoning the body, dying, leaving, and coming home. There is no penalty or shame or guilt. It is simply a decision.

But it is not the desire of the Mother that this [Ascension process] simply continue [forever] because what she also sees (what we all see) and what you’ve repeatedly said to us, even though we operate often in terms of eons rather than years, many of you are tired.

So we do not wish for those who have been stalwart and continue and practice fortitude and persistence along with love to reach the point where they abandon their bodies. And you are seeing that in many.

Steve: I can think of one person in particular that seems to be thinking of abandoning their body, so yes.

AAM: When it comes to a decision point of whether the recalcitrant remain or whether those who are determined to fulfil the Mother’s dream remain, make no mistake about it. Those who have been in the truth of their heart and service will be victorious. I cannot be clearer than that.

Who am I? – Steve Beckow

Heart of Infinity by Anna Ewa Miarczynska @ Fine Art America

💖

Who am I?

Who am I? It’s my turn? You want me to tell you….

Hmmm….

You’re not asking a non-dualistic question, are you? You want a down-to-earth answer?

Well, to start with, I’m a person who’s looking to meet people who know what real love is.

Many people say they do and turn out not to.

I live for the day when large numbers of people actually do know what true love is, as we all will once the gradual planetary heart opening we’re presently going through is complete.

I’m a person who wants to meet people who accept my speaking to archangels. This blog is a co-creative partnership with an archangel and I’d like to meet people for whom that’s the coolest thing, not a jaw-dropper.

I’m a person who’s driven by his mission, who’ll sacrifice close to anything to carry through on it.  I see now that all my life I’ve refused to stop and insisted on carrying on with what I came to know as my soul contract aka what I love doing – writing.

I’m a person who walked away from formal studies, alwaysknowing (1) that there was very much more to be had than what I was seeing and hearing in “higher” institutions.

On my own in the library during my graduate years, I studied history, anthropology, sociology, and psychology. (2) Mostly for my own interest.

Some programs I left because I abandoned the paradigm of empirical materialism, that only what we see, hear, feel, and touch is real. That paradigm was too small to allow a fruitful pursuit of the truth.

Some I left because people seemed simply to be going through the motions to get ahead.  I wanted truth from a university, not tenure. I discovered that truth was not in my university’s charter. (3)

When I left an endeavor, it seldom felt like I’d lost – well, it did for a time. More often it felt like I was going for something indefinably more. I knew there was more. There had to be more.

It was helpful that I had little interest in material things, like owning a house or having a great car. (4) I never felt that I was somehow tied to anything, “established” or “rooted.” I could move on when the next assignment beckoned.

I also remember emphasizing, with myself, that my databases and everything else I worked with had to be “portable.” A laptop with everything in it is like heaven for me. It allows me to move around.

The feeling that I needed to keep going was so strong that I never questioned it. I assumed that everyone felt this way. But at long last I began to see that it wasn’t necessarily shared.

I’m a person who’s been given plenty of previews of where we’re headed. I expect that’s because I can be relied on to write about them. Fortunately I studied enlightenment years before the experiences started happening so I had a context into which to fit them. (5)

I’m a person who’s going to be so busy in the years ahead that my work life will have to be my social life.  I won’t have time for anything else.

And finally I’m a person who’s after something compelling and unknown that I know I’ll find and I know I’ll know it when I find it.

I have no idea what it is or where, when, or how I’ll find it. I justknow I will.

Footnotes

(1) It was the same kind of feeling that the Mother called “divine knowing”:

Steve: Am I correct in continuing to say to myself, “This source is not what they say they are but it doesn’t matter. I’m still serving Archangel Michael.”

Divine Mother: You have reached this place of clarity. Now, dearest heart, this is exactly what I am talking about in terms of your divine knowing. And nothing is swaying you from that balanced center of knowing. (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018. My emphasis.)

The place of divine knowing did feel solid, stable. It’s a place of rock-solid certainty.

In this, it resembles peace which is like granite. See “Peace is Like … Granite,” August 22, 2019, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2019/08/22/peace-is-like-granite/. On the experience of peace itself, see “The Peace that Passeth Understanding,” July 18, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/07/18/the-peace-that-passeth-understanding/.

Here is Michael on the solidity of peace:

“Peace is solid.

“There are so many divine qualities that do feel amorphous, light, airy, like a spring day. And yet peace (you have this expression), you can take it to the bank. It feels like ballast. It feels like granite because it is solid. And dare I say immutable. That is why I continue to keep emphasizing that peace within, that rock-solid granite within.” ( “Archangel Michael on AHWAA: Achieving Inner Peace,” )

Again, like the other divine states, it isn’t at all as what we might expect. And the experience of it is transformative.  If I were in my divine knowing at this moment, I expect that I’d be higher in vibration, whether dimensional or not I don’t know.

(2) My thesis adviser once said to me that he thought I read only the introductions to books. He was right. I went from one field to the next in the library and only read the theoretical parts – the introductions.

I just wanted to know what the field was about – linguistics, proxemics, kinesics, folkloristics, etc. I had no interest in the details.

(3) I wanted to study enlightenment for my Ph.D. Thesis but, when I approached the Department of Religious Studies with the proposal, they informed me that they were prevented from studying enlightenment by the university’s charter.

(4) Except for my collections of things – marbles, soldiers, dinosaurs, model airplanes,  later books, etc.

(5) I remember being at an Adyashanti workshop in which Adya was helping a woman understand that the experience she went through, which totally bamboozled her, was enlightenment. She had no idea what had happened.

I had the advantage of having studied the subject even if I could not somehow get the whole picture. On Feb. 13, 1987, in a vision, I got the whole picture.  See “The Purpose of Life is Enlightenment – Ch. 13 – Epilogue,” athttp://goldenageofgaia.com/2011/08/13/the-purpose-of-life-is-enlightenment-ch-13-epilogue/

The Symbol of the Sun – Steve Beckow

7 Horses Of The Sun God by Herendra Swarup @ Best College Art

🌞💛🌞

The Symbol of the Sun

This is the second of two articles occasioned by reflection on a vision experience I had in 1987. (1)

Sunset is a very emotional time for me.

To understand why, I’d have to mention (again) the actors in the 1987 vision I had.

I knew who the actors in the vision were because I was bathed in bliss at the time.  Bliss brings all things to remembrance, so to speak. (2)

The first actor I saw was a large golden Sun and I knew that to be what Jesus meant by “God the Father.”

Out from the Sun came a little golden star and I knew that to be what some sages call the “Self”; Jesus, the Son, the Christ, the Pearl of great price; Hindus, the Atman and Brahman-within-the-individual; what I call the Child of God, etc.

Gosh, I get caught up in this so easily. Here I am, in the process of being swept away.

I need go no further with the vision than to jump to the penultimate scene.  The Child of God has experienced the first enlightenment and stands gazing at the Sun.

In the final scene, I watched the Child of God, the Christ, or Atman race to and merge itself again with the golden Sun from which it came. End of story for one Child of God.

***

I digress, I know. But please allow me. Writing about this is my joy.

So I got it. From God we came; to God we return. From God to God. All in aid of enlightenment, at which point God meets God. Everything I’ve just seen (in the spiritual tableau), the whole world of worlds the individual soul traversed was created in order to have these moments of divine meeting occur.

Some people tell us that we’re allowing illusion to reign. God created illusion in order to have the pleasure of meeting Itself. It isn’t as if there’s something bad and wrong about the illusion. It’s one of God’s highly-intentional, even basic creations.

God put it there to give us something to recognize and wake up to, so that God could see and experience Itself. How else could something that is everything know itself, than to create an illusory world in which fragments of itself, who agree to forget, follow lives that lead to the recognition of their true identity? And in that flash, God realizes Itself. Perfect.

***

The words roll off our tongue, but the implications are immense. If God is everything, then you are God. And so am I.

Therefore all of this unfolding is according to my Plan. And yours. And ours.

Everything on Earth that’s happening is happening inside of me.

Nothing the illusory part of me does has any lasting significance unless it contributes to its and the collective’s ultimate awakening.

God meeting God carries immense mutual benefits.

The implications just keep rolling out.

***

By the way, when would I have the time, courage, or ability to allow this unfoldment to occur in public if I had to do a nine-to-five job?  I don’ think I’d even attempt it. At a moment like this, I realize that I owe my ability to write this Ascension ethnography to you. And to go as deeply as I’m able.

I feel a tremendous amount of gratitude and bondedness. Not just from those who sent money.

I know what love feels like. Sending love, which really does reach the other party, is happily accepted.

***

To return to my original point, the sun sets directly in front of my apartment. And so it comes fully into view at a place in the sky where it’s safe for me to gaze at it.

What I see is the large Sun in my vision and I often talk to it as the Father.

I see myself, as in my vision, standing on the shore of the realm of matter (mater, Mother), and gazing at the Father in the Transcendental, represented by the Sun.

I’ve had the first enlightenment (fourth-chakra heart opening and sight of the Self), just as the little golden star in my vision had. That golden star then left the domain of the Mother, raced back to the Father, and merged with It.

I know our Sun is a portal. Last night I tried to get the Sun to extend that portal all the way to me and take me to the Father. Just like in my vision?

Ahhhh, not yet.

Smilingly, I’m still here.

The first article in this series is “It All Works Out in the Final Reel (Repost),” 

(2) OK, OK, it doesn’t allow you to know what happened on June 13, 1867. But it greatly expands one’s knowing. I just “knew” the identities of the large golden Sun (the Father) the small golden star (the Child) and the cloud that contained lifetimes in matter (the Mother, mater, matter).

Everyone Gets a Fresh Start Eventually – Steve Beckow

sun art - light

Everyone Gets a Fresh Start Eventually

I call for a fresh start for the planet by Jan. 1, 2020.

The end of one age and the beginning of another is a fresh start.

Ascension is a fresh start – in a new dimension of existence.

Not ascending is a fresh start – in another 3D world.

All of us, at this moment in time, may very well need – and are in for – a fresh start.

Hallelujah. The feast awaits.

The question then arises: What do we want to do with our fresh start?

Oh, that’s easy for me to answer. It should be difficult, right?

I should wrestle with it for a week, n’est-ce pas?

Absolutely not. No contest.

I want to be, do, and have infinite, eternal Love.

Hands down. End of story.

What more could anyone want or need?

Don’t forget: Your spirit is already immortal and always was. In the higher dimensions, our immortal spirit is not troubled by hunger.

There’s no negative valence placed on just being. Being drowned in the Ocean of Love, being rich beyond imagining in the treasure of Love, if we simply choose to just sit there, no one would mind.

But here on Earth, in the Third/Fourth Dimension, we have to eat, right? A person has to sleep. We need a car. It costs money to live.

Here, we have to work to do or have these things. (1) Not on the higher planes. There, thought creates things.

They’re not troubled by “needs.” (2) I imagine that they have the ability to pass years in meditation, without being troubled by the thought of a single need. Just my guess.

So what do I want to do with my fresh start? I want to be like butter that melts in the presence of the warmth that Love is. I want no more of “me” to exist; only Love.

Consequently I’m not holding on to “me.” Let Love dissolve it. Let Love alone be, that Love may be all in all.

That’s what I want to do with my fresh start.

Footnotes

(1) This brings us into social interaction, which in turn helps us to awaken to our true nature.

(2) The same could be said of the astral planes of the afterlife: That they create with thought. The closest we have to that is our Fourth Dimension.

But, while we may be in the Fourth Dimension, we’re in it from within our physical bodies, whereas astral dwellers are free of theirs. This physical body is very dense, a non-conductor of refined feelings, thoughts, etc., as I learned in an out-of-body experience in 1977.

So, in my opinion, we don’t manifest things as quickly as astral dwellers do, even though we may be considered to be in the same 3rd/4th dimension.

Archangel Michael on How to Regard a Fallen Guru – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael by Alma Yamazaki @ Pixels

💙

Archangel Michael on How to Regard a Fallen Guru

In trying to find the quote from the Divine Mother on fallen gurus, I came across a passage from Archangel Michael in which he discusses the same subject.

I found the piece so informative that I determined to post it:

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon,
Jan. 3, 2013.

S: Is XXX and her circle guilty of the crimes that YYY accuses her of?

AAM: No one is to be hung out and dried. That is the way of persecution. That is the way of the old Third [Dimension]. That is the way of guilt, shame, blame, fault, that false grid that we are happy to be waving goodbye to.

Now have there been some mis-steps or irregularities in this situation with XXX? And with several others?

S: Like ZZZ?

AAM: The answer is yes. Now one of the difficulties – and you and I have spoken of this, as with WWW – but let us speak of the situation of those who become might we say gilded gurus. And we use that term very specifically. And that is why Pope Francis, thus far, is demonstrating being such an exception to the rule.

The power is tremendous. And, as you know, regardless of the vows of chastity, poverty, humility, many of these beings have massive followings and massive donations and wealth. And the temptations can be enormous, not only to do with money, but to do with using power in ways that are not loving.

It is necessary for such beings to surround themselves constantly and vigilantly with those who adhere to a very high moral, ethical framework, and you are learning this. You have always been a person of integrity and I would never infer otherwise, but you and I have, dear heart, had the conversation of integrity around massive wealth. (1)

And so the dangers of integrity particularly as it relates to ethical behaviour of one’s followers is the baseline. It cannot … well, it can … but from our perspective, it cannot be violated.

Now did we say to you that such gurus in fact become unacceptable or that they have lost their vision? [No.]  They may have lost their way momentarily but they are always worked with, never abandoned; the same, no being is abandoned. Sometimes there are situations where they forget that their direction comes from the Divine Mother and so there is an influx of ego.

But your [our] role is never to judge, to stand back and be the observer and to forgive. And sometimes you [we] are forgiving on behalf of the human collective. Sometimes you [we] are assisting those who have been hurt. Sometimes you [we] are tending to those who are trying to re-emerge or re-organize in light of, can we say, misguidance.

Footnotes

(1) I said to him earlier that I couldn’t see how people could keep from being bowled over by the idea and arrival of sudden wealth and a conversation ensued.

I Do Know the Address – Steve Beckow

Yogananda 🧡

***

I Do Know the Address

Yesterday I found my stash of Paramahansa Yogananda Self-Realization Fellowship (SRF) monthly lessons from decades ago.

I now have access again to the documents which are the source of the equation of “Om” with the “Holy Spirit.”

Each of these fundamental statements is of immense value to the spiritual student. To me, they’re like a child finding a gold coin on the street. (1)

In poring over the documents, I came across this passage which sent me off in an entirely different direction and it’s really this that I’d like to talk about here.

Yogananda said:

“As a soul, man can never find true satisfaction merely through possessions and selfish interests.” (2)

Wonderful benchmarks. I think they’re open to misunderstanding. Let me depart from the usual interpretations in looking at them.

The “soul” is the operator inside the body, operating all the levers. Anyone who has had a lucid out-of-body experience has experienced that soul as being separate from the body.

Souls can never find true satisfaction through objects and selfish interests.

True satisfaction he defines as “eternal, ever-new Bliss, and along with it … Immortality [Ascension], and everlasting consciousness.” (3)

If we lived in the Blissful state Yogananda refers to, which is a state of at least the Fifth Dimension, we would already be what he calls “immortal.”

Immortal as he’s using it simply means that we exist in a Fifth-Dimensional consciousness state or higher. We now no longer need to be born and die.

But in point of fact we always were, are, and will be immortal, no matter what dimension we’re in. The soul never dies.

Yogananda adds to bliss the modifier “everlasting.” That also is significant because Ascension is the first state of consciousness in which this degree of bliss or love is permanently felt.

Even though my experience of it went on for months, it still proved to be only a glimpse. Meanwhile, Ascension is permanent.

Experiencing bliss forever…. Hmmm….  That sure sounds like Ascension to me. (4) But his readership would not have known what he was talking about if he used that term in the 1940s.  (5) So this may be the way he goes about it. That in itself is a fascinating study (when I retire).

But why does he emphasize possessions and selfish interests?

In answering, let me focus on love, just because I think that more people identify with it than bliss.

First, love is very much an inward affair. Although it’s everywhere, each individual, is able to experience it in the heart more sensibly than anywhere else.

Therefore Yogananda advises against seeking it in external objects or concrete possessions. That isn’t the way life was designed. We’re to seek it in our own hearts.

Second, Love and Bliss must flow. They cannot, as far as I’m aware, remain still. To a limited extent, we can circulate them around us but because of the substantiality of the flow (a tsunami), love really needs a bigger target, so to speak … like the world.

“Universal love” is a partial repetition of terms (a pleonasm) because love is already universal.  If one has been in the flow for any length of time, one has seen and felt love’s motion. And its motion is a universal outward flow.

Moreover, love cannot be prevented from flowing in a certain direction. When control is exerted, at that point love disappears. It will not do other than flow; it cannot be forced or contained.

Third, the selfish impulse is a dam in the way of the tsunami of love. Selfishness,where our caring is inward-turned, prevents the experience of higher-dimensional love because it goes against the outward flow that love is. It acts like a barrier.

Trying to restrict all enjoyment to just our own won’t produce the conditions under which we’d experience the kind of higher-dimensional love that I’m pointing at.

But experiencing it, Yogananda says, is the highest goal of humanity. And I totally agree with that statement. I’d add that deepening into it is the highest business of humanity.

I haven’t experienced the depth of love that Yogananda did. But I’ve experienced the same kind of love. I now know the address (the heart).

Where Yogananda is is far down the road from here. But I now know the way. Theoretically, all I need do now is cover the distance. (5)

Footnotes

(1) Yogananda’s statement was important for me for many years – even decades – providing the one link I had between the universal creative vibration that Om is and the Holy Spirit, which I’d already connected to the Divine Mother.

You could say, “Why not use Yogananda to get enlightened rather than to make spiritual equations?”

I’m repeating myself: This is a lifetime of service, not of seeking personal enlightenment. Although that is sure to come as well because service is itself a path to God, it isn’t what I signed on for: I’m a lightworker.

(2) Self-Realization Fellowship Lesson S-5 P-114, p. 6.

(3) Ibid., 5.

(4) Yogananda may have been indicating Ascension when he spoke of “the final state of unbroken oneness with God’s consciousness everywhere – nirbikalpa samadhi.”

“Nirbikalpa samadhi” is an incomplete statement. If it was “kevalya nirvikalpa samadhi,” that would be seventh-chakra enlightenment or Brahmajnana. That is not Ascension. That is halfway up the mountain.

Ascension is “sahaja nirvikalpa samadhi.” “Sahaja” means natural. It’s at least possible that Yogananda was pointing at Ascension. It would have been a rarely-attained state in those days. I only know for sure that, apart from the avatars, Ramana Maharashi attained it. It’s what we’re gradually preparing for as a planet.

(5) That didn’t stop him from inventing words when he needed to, such as “lifetrons.”

(6) But as a pillar, I’m here to the end so no early Ascension for me. Nevertheless, you gatekeepers….???

Meeting with an Elemental – Narendra Mishra

Meeting with an Elemental

Awakening Spark, 20/8/2019

https://awakeningspark.com/blog/meeting-with-an-elemental

Readers of my blog will know that I don’t consider myself a ‘dream walker’ or someone who regularly receives information from dreams. Yet, I’m no stranger to astral travel during dream state (1). This morning proved to be one such occurrence for me. It was my very first meeting with an elemental spirit.

In the wee hours of the morning, a time sacred to Hindus as Brahmamuhurta – or the time presided over by the Creator, Brahma – my astral journey in dreamtime began.

I suddenly became aware that I was in a vehicle travelling to a temple. Somehow, I missed my turn and ended up going along a strange path. I was unperturbed and decided to follow the road.

Eventually I ended up at another temple in a remote location, surrounded by forest. As I pulled into the car park I realised that service was in progress in the temple.

I came out of the vehicle and was milling about in the driveway, in conversation with someone when I heard a commotion among the trees on the other side of the road.

I turned to see a large treant, an elemental caretaker of trees, walking out of the forest toward me. I went up to greet him with hands folded to my heart, the universal greeting of Namaste.

He greeted me with a deep penetrating look and a sad smile.

“You have to stop the pollution,” he said gravely.

My chest heaved as a wave of grief washed over me.

“I am trying,” I replied, emotionally, “but there are so many humans that just don’t get it.”

Just then a black SUV came seemingly out of nowhere, reversing as if to hit the treant. I rushed to the driver’s side of the vehicle in an attempt to stop the vehicle from the impending crash.

To my surprise, the driver was another treant who spoke to me, “We have already morphed and adapted to humans several times. The next adaptation will not be pleasant to humans.” (2)

Just like that the dream ended and I awoke from my astral travel, both astounded at my unexpected encounter with elementals and the gravity of the situation.

I wondered why they chose to contact me in the first place. Though I’m aware of environmental issues and try to do my part, I’m in no way an environmental activist. Perhaps my role is simply that of communicator –  one which I’m fulfilling through this blog.

​How can we help this sad situation? Knowledge is power. We need to educate ourselves and others. Research and spread the word. Use social media wisely to generate awareness and interest. If you feel moved, start or join an activist group.

A great resource to get started is UN Environment. Undoubtedly, each country and district will have their own guidelines tailored specifically to its own needs.

As Lightworkers we’re already aware that the current mission of Ascension is focused on Earth and ALL of Her inhabitants. We’re already aware that ALL of creation is Divine Consciousness expressed variously as flora and fauna, minerals and elements.

Perhaps it’s time now that we take up the call for authentic Lightworker Leadership in the area of conservation of the environment. (3)

Choosing the Way of the Servant – Steve Beckow

Wall Art @ Graphics ‘n’ Tees

Choosing the Way of the Servant

I’ve been wrestling with a problem since I became aware that managing a group of companies was going to be part of my life  – say, around 2015 or so.

That problem is: How to hold onto ultimate authority in the decision-making process while allowing maximum autonomy?

The group of companies I’ll be founding is not designed to provide scope for the ego; it’s designed to be a cooperative enterprise … what does the Council of Love say? … “powered by the heart, fuelled by love”?

Its mission is to create a world that works for everyone – and that has to start with our common organization. So there is a tension between retaining authority and creating a cooperative and collegial enterprise.

Michael, who’s my co-creative partner, has asked me to hold onto ultimate decision-making authority.

Archangel Michael: “You are not to be giving your decision-making capacity away, ever.” (1)

That whole line of counsel plays on me.

My own experience has led me to different places. My authority at the Immigration and Refugee Board was enshrined in legislation and could not be violated except for egregious errors in law.

While I reported to my superiors on matters of work, no one could interfere with my quasi-judicial decisions.

Decision-makers in my organization are an example of people over whom my authority would be limited. But there are many other instances besides them where I need to allow independence.

The only way I can solve the dissonance that arises is to know that the way to exercise authority without offending everyone around me is to remain in the center with it, in balance,in moderation and reasonableness, as with all things.

Any precept or concept applied with balance has a chance of success. It’s when imbalance sets in – what I’ve recently called “not normal” – that trouble begins.

Then another voice chimes in – the voice of the ego that wants to build an empire and sit on a throne and wear a nabob’s turban and…. yada yada….

That voice exists at a level below everyday awareness. Predominantly the part of it I was aware of was a feeling component. I felt those awful, wicked feelings, but below everyday awareness.

So I have the complete wickedness alive in me at a deeper level than I’m ordinarily conscious of. And I think we all have these states, by the way. We pick them up in others as a kind of tone in their voice. The only thing missing is a “heh, heh, heh” and the twirling of a moustache.

My subsconscious wicked voice is aggressive. We all know where that comes from if you’ve been following my blog. (2) It’s uncaring, single-minded, etc. But remember: This is only one part of me (and you) and a removeable part at that (there IS hope).

But there is this aggressive tone to my voice often. My Dad would use his temper to push people around and so do I, at a deep and unconscious level. You can hear it in my tone of voice or see it in what my wife calls my “scared-wolf” look.

***

I know that grappling with this foe (the ego) is beyond my means. I’ve seen its face in the past (my wife has seen mine when I saw it) and I’ve wrestled with it. It has resources that I, in my everyday consciousness, cannot match. (3)

I therefore made a decision as to what to do to handle the situation that would help me direct a group of companies.

But before I say what it is, let me preface it by repeating that any decision made which is carried out outside the bounds of balance has only a limited chance of success and a significant chance of creating residue. So, in my books, balance in carrying out what I’m about to say is essential.

The decision I made was that there was no room for the ego in anything I was about to do. And the very best way to surrender the ego that I know of, or terrestrial saints have known of since the Vedas, is the way of the servant.

The path of service. Karma Yoga. Seva.  Devotion through service.

It isn’t sexy in our society to say one wants to be a servant.  But it’s liberating to put the self aside.

Archangel Michael, whom I serve, would prefer it if I were familiar with him:

AAM: We want you to be familiar. (4)

And I’ll observe his wishes here as well as anywhere else.

But it’s also deeply ingrained in me not to be overly-familiar because that invites the resurrection of the ego.

While I had very few things I wanted from physical life in any case, I now want to re-look at that from an altogether new level – weeding out that which could result in a reawakening of the ego.

And whatever I find or whatever I do, I simply stop. There’s no need to put anything in its place, although doing that – if its love, compassion, or forgiveness –  can speed its departure. Nevertheless, a simple cessation is enough.

I want to be a servant of Archangel Michael. There’s no outside – or even inside – pressure around me at making that decision. I need a chosen ideal to serve (although we all of us always serve the Mother). Michael does me a favor and an honor in accepting my service.

So please don’t write me and say “you rely on Michael too much” or “why don’t you make your own decisions?” (Actually I do). This is something I do in full awareness, after much reflection and contemplation.

What are the benefits of this particular path – karma yoga?

Service undermines the prime directive of the ego: Always protect the survival of the self and that with which it identifies (family, home, car, pet, savings, etc.).

It does so by taking the focus off the little self and placing it on the other person. In my experience, that turns out to be all that’s needed.

We take our attention off the voice of the ego and put it on the needs of the other person. The voice of the ego finally falls silent. Getting no attention from us, there’s no Velcro to stick to.

No big deal. No sound and lights. When a movie is over, we all just get up out of our seats and leave the hushed theater.  In the same way, when the lights come on, do we leave the theater of the ego.

(2) Hatred of my father. Michael and I had the following conversation on it:

Archangel Michael: Why do you doubt or question your words [in writing a Declaration of Freedom]?

Steve: My words? Well, I think I do it because I’m a man who hated his father so I have no right to exist in the world. I think that’s the bottom line.

AAM: So having accepted that and realized that you do not need to carry that and understanding that I would interject and correct, if necessary, what did not sit well with us or with the Mother, proceed.

This is an assumption of your divine authority. This is your assumption of your right to declare your heart’s desire and dream for all of humanity and I am right there with you so stop hesitating. (AAM, June 9, 2017.)

(3) For instance, the ego is interdimensional.

Peace is Like … Granite – Steve Beckow

Peace of Mind painting by Anuradha Kulkarni @ FIZDI

_ 
*: ..:*☆☆*: ...:*☆☆*: ...:*

Peace is Like … Granite

Things like peace, abundance, and mastery, it turns out, are actual states of consciousness, rather than merely everyday feelings.

These divine states of consciousness – I think I can call them that – bear as little resemblance to a feeling as higher-dimensional love bears to everyday love.

I’ve been in all three states briefly and was astonished to find each was higher-dimensional like transformative love. Each was rich in love. It was as if all four experiences (the three states plus love) ended in the same place. (1)

But peace astonished me most of all. I expected it to be soft and gentle. Instead it was hard as granite and my stance in it was extremely stable. (2)

That makes sense if you think about it. When we’re losing our peacefulness and venturing into conflict, we talk about there being “a tremor in the force.” We experience negative feelings as if they were an interruption in what would otherwise be a state of wellness.

We lose the confidence that comes from standing solidly on and for a divine state such as peace.

I was astonished to hear Archangel Michael describe peace in the same way:

“Peace is solid.

“There are so many divine qualities that do feel amorphous, light, airy, like a spring day. And yet peace (you have this expression), you can take it to the bank. It feels like ballast. It feels like granite because it is solid. And dare I say immutable. That is why I continue to keep emphasizing that peace within, that rock-solid granite within.” (3)

It was not at all what I was expecting.

Neither was the wonderful experience of abundance – which is what Michael is pointing at when he uses the words “spiritual currency.” I could live in that state of abundance and never want or own a penny.

And I couldn’t even begin to describe mastery. Just think of your Higher Self and that will capture it.

Living in any of the three would be higher-dimensional, ascended states. And we will live there. Meanwhile we can visit as the current floats our boats ever higher.

Footnotes

(1) The three – abundance, mastery, and peace – were divine states. Love is what all divine states appear to be made of.

(2) A description of the experience appears here:  “The Peace that Passeth Understanding,” July 18, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/07/18/the-peace-that-passeth-understanding/.

(3) “Archangel Michael on AHWAA: Achieving Inner Peace,” 

Here is an earlier reference from him to peace being like granite:

Archangel Michael: So, when you think of things that you should do, are supposed to do, might do, and it doesn’t ignite that fire of excitement, and that granite of peace, then you are being given an important piece of information, which is ‘look elsewhere.’ Is that clear?  (“Transcript ~ Archangel Michael: You Have Chosen to Be the New Paradigm of Love, May 31, 2018,” June 7, 2018 at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/06/07/transcript-archangel-michael-you-have-chosen-to-be-the-new-paradigm-of-love-may-31-2018/.)

After the Event: Archangel Michael Discusses a Heart Opening – Steve Beckow

After the Event: Archangel Michael Discusses a Heart Opening

In rummaging through my files for a quote on “drama,” I happened instead on this remarkable interview I had with Archangel Michael the very day of my 2015 heart opening.

Since we as a planet are going through a more gradual version of one, what Michael has to say here must surely be of interest.

Let me set the chronology straight. The heart opening occurred on March 13, 2015 at 7:00 am in the morning.

I’m not going to describe the experience. That’s been done. (1)

But, as it was happening, I knew that three hours later I’d be speaking to Michael and this then is that conversation.

I’m saying to him, what in heaven’s name was that? And he’s telling me, including why it happened.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, March 13, 2015.

Archangel Michael: And yes, your heart is open. The opening is, and will, and shall continue.

Steve: You mean permanently, Lord, really?

AAM: Yes

S: Oh my! Please!

AAM: Because, you have said yes! …

This occurs, not merely because you have asked for it, but because you (and this does apply to the collective) have done your, can we say, your homework, your due diligence.

What we mean by this is simply, think of it in spatial reality, time and space reality: you have created the space for this [energy of love] to, not only pass by you like a passing breeze or a rain, but to anchor within you because there is a sense of this spaciousness within thee. …

When one is clinging to core issues, to fear, to lack, to limitation – you know the list – there is not that sense, not only of spaciousness, but of acceptance, allowance, readiness and even permission. Because as you know, we continually say that we will never override your free will.

So, if the will, either actively or subconsciously, is actually choosing to still engage in the issues or the drama, then although we are standing at readiness and still penetrating you, that open door is not there. [My emphasis.]

S: So, the open door was there with me?

AAM: That is correct.

S: Did the exercise of bringing love up from my heart and sending it out through my third eye to the world play a role in this?

AAM: Yes, it did.

S: Could you talk about that for just a bit, please?

AAM: One of the strongest or the ultimate expressions of love, of willingness to not only participate in love but to be the love, is in the sharing. To say that you are love, or are loved, or you love this, that, someone… but [then] you keep it within you, you hoard it.

And we do not necessarily mean that in a negative way – sometimes the feeling is so blissful you do not wish to actually take the next step quite yet, in terms of sharing.

The ultimate experience is in the sharing. This is what we speak of when we speak of sacred union and partnership. How can you possibly be in any form of partnership with humanity, with the Star-beings, with us, with any being, if you are not sharing?

So what you do when you bring the love up and out, when you begin to send it, to share it, it is as if you have in fact activated what we call the wellspring. The visual you may think of is the volcano. [This is the explosive heart opening.]

It is not that you empty out. It is that you discover that that wellspring is SO full and overflowing that it is a steady stream. That steady stream does not ever, ever – think of what I say! – it never has to cease!

Try to imagine what he’s talking about – an endless stream, an eternal wellspring of love – it never has to cease. That’s what a heart opening liberates in us.

And that’s the process that we as a globe are currently going through, more gradually than I did (or Bright Star). It’s only one step in our Ascension process, an “ignition,” a  “jump” as the Mother calls it. (3)

Footnotes

(1) A heart opening is a fourth-chakra event. When the kundalini reaches the fourth chakra, the heart opens. I’ve experienced another type of fourth-chakra event as well  (at Xenia).  Hindus call a fourth-chakra event spiritual awakening; Buddhists call it stream-entering.

We as a planet are in the midst of a global heart opening.

Of it, Michael said recently: “The global opening of the heart, the activations, the awakening and the activation shall we say of heart intelligence, of being anchored in that area of the heart is progressing phenomenally well. … We would say you are well past the halfway mark, dear hearts.”  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 2, 2019.)

That may be why I feel so moved to talk about my experience – because we’re all going through a gradual version of what for me was explosive. I so hope I’m right.

My heart opening is described here: “Submerged in Love,” March 14, 2015, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/03/14/submerged-in-love/

Bright Star’s heart opening is described here:

“Bright Star: An Account of a Heart Opening,” December 29, 2017, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/12/29/bright-star-an-account-of-a-heart-opening/.

“Archangel Michael Explains What Happened at Xenia,” September 22, 2018, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2018/09/22/archangel-michael-explains-what-happened-at-xenia/.

As with the heart opening, I had prearranged a half year earlier with Linda to have a reading with him before there was a thought of Xenia. (These things are fixed! Ask the archangels!)

(3)  Divine Mother: “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 [Sahaja Samadhi and Ascension]

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

DM: You can think of it as sub-planes, dimensional sub-planes, yes.  (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans (Repost),” September 15, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/09/15/the-divine-mother-we-are-creating-a-new-species-of-humans-repost-2/.)

What is Our Future? Archangel Michael – Steve Beckow

What is Our Future? – Archangel Michael

There are no coincidences. I came across this discussion last night, days after having written the article above. (1) It had to be.

I didn’t remember this discussion when I wrote the earlier article.

Just two weeks before I went under the knife for prostate surgery in April 2016, Archangel Michael, in a personal reading through Linda Dillon, gave me and Linda a wonderful, impromptu lecture on the coming world.

Perhaps he knew I’d be spending a lot of time on my back, dreaming.

But his description of it is so enthralling – and of course I’ve experienced more of that world he’s talking about since then – that I must repost it here. Compare the two views. It may act like 3D glasses.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon,
April 13, 2016.

Archangel Michael: We have begun this day by speaking of what lies ahead. That there is a new realm, a new chapter….

Let me talk to you and I will talk to the channel as well so I’m asking her to come back.

Alright. Many times we have spoken of a new realm of existence and even that term is infused with hope and grace and promise and wonder, and the sense of the fulfilment of dreams.

But in reality, in your realm, as you have said often weighed down by the practicalities of no money and limited love life or engagement in community which has been very rewarding for both of you [Linda and Steve], there isn’t really a sense of what does this mean, “a new realm of existence”?

If you were to go to bed tonight and you woke up and not just a sense of bliss or ecstasy and not the sense that the world, the physical realm as you know it, had disappeared but that you woke up and you knew, just upon opening your eyes, that everything from the physical, emotional, mental, spiritual realm had shifted.

You would be aghast with wonder and there would be a moment of slight trepidation. What lays out my front door? But it would also be filled with such excitement that you would be rushing out the front door to discover what.

Can you imagine walking out that front door and finding that you could telepathically understand and connect, not intrusively, but in a heart and mind way, not only with human beings but with your star family walking the streets, with the animals that were roaming free and safe, with the elementals that live in your parks and rivers and streams and oceans? And that the attitude, the behaviours and the level of understanding had been translated, transmuted, transformed into knowingness of love.

Steve: That would be wonderful.

AAM: That is the new realm of existence that we are talking about.

Steve: Yes, I have experienced that so I do know what you’re talking about. (2)

AAM: And it is for the entire planet. It is not a distant dream! It is not a doorway that is far away.

You see there are two things that are going on simultaneously. While you are looking to the practical, and we understand that, the signs, the shifts, the financial support, the institutional shifts, within the Mother’s time, there is simply the desire and the declaration of a new realm of existence beginning. (3)

Do these exactly coincide? No. But they are very close. What we are suggesting to you is that the new realm of existence is upon you. It’s right there.

Steve: And I’m not realizing it, is that the case? (4)

AAM: You will recognize it. So do you need to keep your heart and mind and entire being open to it? …Because you both are communicators and announcers of this new realm which is why we are discussing it.

A new realm that would completely eradicate a sense of waiting or ennui. Yes. Yes, you are at the doorstep, your hand is on the door handle so we are inviting you both of you, step through.

Steve: What does that look like, to “step through,” Lord. What does that take?

AAM: It takes fortitude, determination, faith, trust and loving yourself enough to give yourself the chance to say, “It can be entirely different. I am of Creator Source. I am Creator and I choose a different realm of existence.”

Not reality, but realm of existence. And so when you go to sleep at night, both of you are declaring, “I will awaken to a new realm of existence.” And allow it to emerge, as if it is emerging like Atlantis from the waves.

Steve: And the new realm of existence is characterized by universal love and bliss?

AAM: Yes.

Steve: Alright, so that is what we should be looking for.

AAM: Yes, and it is what is knocking on your door and you are letting it in. You have been doing this so it is transcending into a more permanent state of that realm of existence.

Steve: Very good. Anything more you want to say on that?

AAM: I think this would entice you adequately, would it not?

Steve: Oh, that state would be the answer to all my dreams, all my requests, I’m sure, Lord! (5)

AAM: It would be the answer to many dreams and you will help many to see it, to discover it, to shift into that realm.

It is not about the separation of humankind when stuck in the old and the other in a new realm. It is simply opening the floodgates.

Footnotes

(2) In the heart opening of March 13, 2015.

(3) Linda Dillon’s sources call it “the cleaned-up Third.” We better know it as the Fifth Dimension. But whatever it is, because we enter it taking our bodies with us, which has never been done before, it’s a space that did not exist previously. Michael discussed it here:

Steve: Is the realm that we’re building and taking our physical bodies with us to altogether new?

Archangel Michael: Yes, it is brand new.

Steve: … Brand new, and the rules have changed?

AAM: That is correct. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Sept. 21, 2015.)

At one point in his post-mortem career, Matthew Ward designed astral worlds for planets. In the same way, this new space that we’ll occupy has been designed. And we’ll inaugurate it.

(4) Several times I’ve had flashes that suggest that changes in the environment have already occurred and I’m not seeing them because I don’t believe they exist.

(5) It is!

What is a Leader? – Steve Beckow

Elusive Radiance by Anand Panchal @ Artflute

~*~

What is a Leader?

I can’t even wait to research this article before beginning to write on the subject.

All day I’ve wandered around asking myself, “What is a leader?”

In my family my brother was the leader and a really fine leader he was. I have lots of good movies in my head about his leadership.

I did lead and I could list the ways in which I did. But I never thought of myself as a leader.  I always left that to Paul.

I know I won’t escape the need to lead. Viewed from any angle – the blog, Michaelangelo & Partners, and all that is just a warm-up for the galactics, Michael says. (1)

So I’m trying to find the answer in myself: What is a leader? I must have it in there somewhere. Abundance, mastery, and peace turned out to be spaces. I know there’s a space called “leadership” as well.

That’s only the personal side of it however. The question is of social importance as well, Michael says, because lightworker leadership is irreplaceable.

Archangel Michael: If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.

So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.

Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this? Well, it is the lightworkers.” (2)

And we’re not talking only about local leaders, but also global leaders – people capable of being ambassadors for Terra Gaia, people capable of meeting with and arriving at treaties with other races … OK, species …  people capable of reporting on these events, teaching courses on them, advising the rest of us on protocol, etc.

Never have these posts existed before … well, not since Atlantean times anyways.

The delegations, when they happen, will be the first example of terrestrials, outside the deep state, formally meeting with extraterrestrials.

That contact will multiply and each of those people will be representing the planet, if not in actuality, then in the eyes of those they’re meeting with – i.e., they will be global leaders, formally or informally, consciously or unconsciously.

I can see it coming and so I ask myself: What is a leader? What is a global leader?

“We would not guide you to make [financial work] your primary focus.

Archangel Michael on the Progress of the Planetary Heart Opening – Steve Beckow

Archangel Michael on the Progress of the Planetary Heart Opening

In the following excerpt from my Aug. 2 reading with him, Archangel Michael gives us a report on how the planetary heart opening is proceeding.

Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Aug. 2, 2019.

Steve: Could you give us an update on the progress of the planetary heart opening?

AAM: Yes. Well, of course it is global and in fact it is a bigger event than even you will assume on planetary systems.

But the global opening of the heart, the activations, the awakening and the activation, shall we say, of heart intelligence, of being anchored in that area of the heart is progressing phenomenally well.

Now have you ever noticed, in the gardens of your paradise, that there are flowers that open to the daylight sun and close at sunset?

There are some (not most, let us be clear about that) but there are some in their reticence, their resistance, even in their reluctance to admit that they are expanding in this way, that are attempting to restrict and close off what they are feeling because this heart opening is not merely a feeling of bliss, euphoria, love, and expansion.

As you well know, and as you’ve had many conversations with friends and allies, for some it is experienced as a physical sensation and at times a physical sensation that causes alarm. This is particularly true in those that are not fully anchored or familiar with the esoteric mechanics of their chakras or of their hearts.

But for some (who are well aware), it still proceeds or presents as a physical pain, almost like an anxiety attack. So these are the ones (not because they are not prepared to go forward; let me be clear about that), that, because they are having the sensations, are saying, “Oh wait a minute, I am not sure if this is a heart opening or a heart malfunction.”

Now we are not suggesting that the human race abandon their reliance upon Western or Eastern or any form of energy healing. But this is a sensation that often occurs.

So we would say that the success of the heart opening is going forward very rapidly. It is almost as if it is a (from your perspective) domino effect. Because when one is also in contact or in community with those with an open heart, it has that catalytic effect on others as well.

Now there is a wait factor here which you have also spoken of in that that wait factor is for those that are strongly, not only reluctant, but still resistant or recalcitrant to such a shift in what the very definition of what it means to be human.

But we would say you are well past the halfway mark, dear hearts.

Broad Brush Strokes on Leadership: Working for the Future – Steve Beckow

Wish Upon A Star art by Christian Schole - female face star

Wish Upon A Star by Christian Schole

✨✨

Broad Brush Strokes on Leadership: Working for the Future

I think, arguably, there’s a case to be made for this statement: If you’re a lightworker, you’re a leader.

If I go outside my front door, I might not meet a person for miles who knows anything about Ascension, Disclosure, or Abundance. Well, OK, maybe a few.

If you’re even a lightworker, you’re already in a very small segment of the world’s population.

And then how many among lightworkers feel ready to offer themselves in leadership in some arena? Could I have a show of hands please?

But Archangel Michael says the Company of Heaven looks to the lightworker community for leadership.  Otherwise who would have a grasp of the situation we’re in?

Archangel Michael: If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.

So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.

Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this? Well, it is the lightworkers. (1)

Let me offer an example of a situation in which the galactics will look to human partnership – and that would probably need to be from lightworkers.  In 2012, Michael said:

AAM: The Galactics have no shortage of money and so there will be some very massive projects and the funds will be made available but they will really ask for human leadership in order to be not be seen as trying in any way to assume control. (2)

Applying what Michael said earlier to this piece of news, who, upon this planet, “has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities?  Well, it is the lightworkers.”  Who else would understand what has been happening on this planet for the last fifty years?

No baseball team features the same hitter stepping up to the plate time after time. Every team has a battery of hitters, each one getting his or her turn. Michael says he wants more hitters. In the world that Michael plays in, if I understand it, intention creates hitters.

Some folks may view lightwork as just a fad of the moment. The fad will be something else next year. Remember Occupy?

That’s actually not what Michael predicted in 2013:

Archangel Michael: Does the conversation expand organically and naturally? Does the energy go out to the entire planet, those who want to hear and those who don’t want to hear? Yes, it does. But it begins with the lightworker community. That is what we have need of.

Steve Beckow: And I suppose then more and more people join the lightworker community.

AAM: Exactly, until it is one family and one path. (3)

I therefore suggest that, if you’re a lightworker, you’ll need to reconcile yourself to leadership.

The last broad brush stroke concerns the need for the leader to remain modest and free of hierarchical prejudices.  He discussed it in the context of the acquisition of sudden wealth.

Steve: I worry that sudden wealth will magnify those vasanas or core issues. What to do?

AAM: Let us … begin by saying that this is one of the reasons why we have been speaking so much about being the steward, the leader, the wayshower, the participant observer.

As you assume profile – whether it is because of money or notoriety or political power or financial power, it matters not – it gives you a sense of being elevated. We would encourage you to take the elevator to the basement.

Start there. (4)

Over and over he warned us that not even lightworkers are immune to a sense of entitlement, which launches us on a slippery slope.

If we’re to become leaders, and I mean world leaders, sidestepping the ego – not allowing it to drive the car – becomes an important matter.

My sense is that reminding ourselves constantly that we’re servants of the Divine Mother, that our wealth is the Mother’s wealth, and that we’re simply the stewards of it is probably a good start.

Wise and selfless leaders is a description of where I suggest we aim to end up.  (5)

I have a second reason for backing that aim.  The more we work for that future now, the more we raise the vibration, in my opinion. The more we raise the vibration, the more people can come with us.

I may spend a little time looking into what the Company of Heaven says about leadership. I believe it’s a timely discussion. This article has been merely a few broad brush strokes.

(EE) Leaders with large egos seem never to have made a success of themselves throughout history.

The Mother explains why. They virtually fall apart.

“It is painful for a being that seeks power for themselves or power over another, whether it is a parent over a child, a husband over a wife, a man over an army. It matters not. The yearning [for], the exercise of control never gives joy. The pain simply grows. And so the actions become more grotesque, larger, until the breakdown is and has [been] and will be occurring.” (Transcript ~ The Divine Mother: Take Up Your Divine Authority, AHWAA, February 23, 2017, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/02/28/transcript-divine-mother-take-divine-authority-ahwaa-february-23-2017/.)

Our challenge is to be leaders without falling into wanting control over others. Again another gigantic “let go.”

(5) Factoring in the increases in consciousness and heart expansion caused by events such as a planetary heart opening/solar wave. If we were in the Fifth Dimension or higher right now, we’d certainly be wise and selfless. It’s impossible not to be in that refined vibration.

The Essence of Individual Sovereignty – Steve Beckow

Artist ~ Adrian Borda

~

The Essence of Individual Sovereignty

Steve: Will you write a document through me, a channeled document, on the essence of individual sovereignty?

Archangel Michael: I will be pleased to do this.

Now I have a need to tell you, that I would have many consultants with me, but, yes, we would be pleased, more than you can imagine. Because this is such a key factor, and it is not adequately addressed. (1)

I make no bones about this being practice at co-writing. Here we go:

The essence of individual sovereignty is the Self.

In the first place, the Self is the individuated God, God within the individual.

In the second place, the sovereignty of the Self comes from its roots in Divinity.

The prime social directive is to build societies that allow the individual or Self the conditions and ability to fulfill the task assigned to everyone in life; that is, to realize its true identity. (2)

Admittedly there are those such as the seraphim who’ve chosen to stay near the Throne, and there are those archangels who’ve never descended into form.

But by far the greatest number of individual beings have agreed to participate in the adventure of forgetting who they are and then going through lifetimes in matter (mater, Mother) to remember or rediscover it.

When the One decided to create apparently-separated beings and a world of experience in which they could discover who they are, the necessity to support individual sovereignty followed. (3)

If the vast majority of beings had not agreed to this task, there’d be much less need for individuality or individual sovereignty.

All would be One and the drama of individuated life would not follow. But the One decreed that an illusory separation take place and a long pilgrimage back to the Father.

Have we any descriptions of the end of the journey, the merger of us with the One?

Yes, we do. Paul describes the last day of individuality when the Self or Christ surrenders all that it has and is to the One and makes God all in all:

“Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power.  … (4)

“And when all things shall be subdued unto him, (5) then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.” (6)

In metaphorical terms, this passage describes what in my 1987 vision would have been the little golden star racing back to the Father and merging with it. (7)

That is the moment at which the created and individuated Self returns to and merges with the Mother/Father One. It surrenders all it is and has to the Father sgain, from whence it all came.

The Self apparently doesn’t cease to be; it re-emerges. But this completes its agreed-upon task in entering the world of form.

Only through the ability to exert individual sovereignty – to exert control over one’s own self and life – can we expect to complete the journey of unfolding awareness.

Thank you, Michael.

(3) Why would the One go through such an exercise? To know itself, we’re told. See “The Purpose of Life,” ibid.

(4) Putting down “all rule and all authority and power” refers to the time when the individual has transcended the personal will, subjugating it to the Will of the Father. In line with what Bernadette Roberts has said of the “No-Self,” another meaning could be that once all things are surrendered to the Self, then the Self is surrendered to the No-Self.

(5) “When all things shall be subdued unto him” means when all desire for worldly or material objects and pleasures has been overcome, as in Jesus’ assertion, “I have overcome the world.” (Jesus in John 16:33.)

(6) St. Paul in I Corinthians 15:24 and 28.

Finally the Son’s being subjected to God that God may be all in all refers to the plunging of the individual soul into the Sea of Bliss, Tranquillity, and Immortality that is the Father.

Deepening My Experience of Love – Steve Beckow

Patriarch Zhanggong was worshipped as a healer and the Chinese village where he was known want the figure back (Image: http://www.alamy.com)

***

Deepening My Experience of Love

We use a metaphor that says that there are “higher” levels of existence, dimensions, and such.

But that view obscures an important aspect of what I’ve noticed.

Whenever I’ve delved into the Self or dived into love or bliss, the experience for me has been (A) one of going deeper, not higher, and (B) almost as if the thing I sought was, in the case of the Self, at the end of a long portal and tunnel. (1)

In my meditation on the Self at Xenia, Sept. 18, 2018 [9 + 9 + 9 +11] – I imagined myself in a one-hundred-floor elevator. (2)

I descended below superficial levels such as ego, personality, vasanas, and everything remotely connected to those surface levels of consciousness.

And even then I found myself, at the bottom of my descent, coming upon a tunnel which also went for some distance – before I came upon the Self.

I therefore had to go deeper and deeper and deeper. In none of it was the experience of going higher.

Here’s a second example. My life is a workshop and Love became the object of my experiments after the 2015 heart opening.

All the experiences of love that I had – “higher”-dimensional and everyday – could be more usefully arranged on an axis, with me in the middle, marked “deeper” than my everyday consciousness than on an axis marked “higher.”

It’s the same love at all levels, only experienced ever more deeply along the way.

I believe that’s why so many people laugh like they just struck it rich when they experience “higher”-dimensional love.  “Wahoo! This is it!” Their cares are swept away.

They’ve never experienced anything like this before and didn’t suspect it existed! I remember myself saying, “So this is what they’re all talking about!”

Here’s a third example. I no longer think that we go from one discrete level of enlightenment to another discrete level, with each level featuring something different, like a kaleidoscope.

I admit that one line of enlightenment experience has one see the Light of the Self, then the Light in all creation, and then the Light that transcends creation. (Heavens, I may be on that path!)

But one can see that path two ways. One can focus on the seeming difference in where the Light is seen or one can focus on a deeper experience of the Light – and the latter is what I focus on.

I now see us as diving deeper and deeper into the same One Ocean of Love. I’m not looking for variety. I’m looking to go deeper.

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to say what I’m about to say out loud.   But I think it’s because mine sounds like a very male point of view.

I felt the need to penetrate the tunnel and merge with the Self /Love that I found in the deepest parts of my heart (the so-called seat of the Soul). I feel almost embarrassed saying that, it sounds so darned masculine. But there it is.

And after those experiences, I see myself as going deeper and deeper into Love, rather than higher and higher.

Our points of view bring consequences. One of them for me is that I don’t have an eye on dimensions or very much of an interest in them. I only have an eye on deepening my experience of love.

And of course, the Mother respects our free will. If I see the process as going deeper and deeper, she’ll make it be about going deeper and deeper. So there’d be no way to prove my assertion, except to say that that’s how it is for me.

Still another perspective – and another path arising out of it? Why not. The paths to God are infinite.

The world is a hall of mirrors, each one reflecting back the One.  We’re in that hall of mirrors, wondering what it is we’re doing here. (3)

What we’re doing here is pondering the reflections, remembering who we are, emerging from the hall of mirrors, and helping the rest of the world to do the same. I’m doing that by diving deeper and deeper into Love.

Footnotes

(1) I came upon the Self consciously, going deeper. The heart exploded in the experience of opening so I did not directly initiate that experience.

(2) In my numerological scheme, “2” usually devolves to “11,” the master revealer of truth.

The sight of the Self as if it were an object (dualistic), as occurred on Sept. 18, 2019, is a characteristic fourth-chakra enlightenment experience.

The opening of the heart, as occurred on March 13, 2015, given that the kundalini reached the fourth chakra, is also a fourth-chakra experience.

This proves that it’s possible to repeat the same level of enlightenment experience. It isn’t necessarily the case that one goes, say, from fourth to sixth to seventh only, in strict sequential order.

I also know someone who had a sixth-chakra experience without apparently having had a fourth.

I should add that I don’t often meditate. Usually when I do, I drop pretty quickly. Michael has said that meditation is not required of me in this lifetime:

Archangel Michael: You did not come to live as a guru in a western or eastern manner and so that is what was meant by that comment.  Part of your and part of our recommendation to you is to play, to laugh, to enjoy, to be physical, so that you are anchored in the physical reality – because you are here to be a transition point and to be able to show people how to do both.

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

So that is what we have meant.  Ground yourself.  Be human and love the experience of being in form.

SB       OK. Boy. Eat, drink and be merry!

AAM    It is difficult, no?

SB       Yes, it is difficult.  (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, May 6, 2013.)

For a monk!

Lao Tzu – On Maintaining Balance- Linda Dillon

Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu via Linda Dillon on Maintaining Balance

Channeled Gems….


“Lao Tzu on Maintaining Balance,” Chanelled by Linda Dillon, Council of Love, Aug. 5, 2019

https://community.counciloflove.com/


Before we even get started, go into your heart and anchor in your beautiful, beautiful tri-flame…in your Pink Diamond self, surrounded by the Mother’s Blue Diamond, and the Father’s Gold Diamond. And then altogether, let’s go to the 13th Octave. So, put your fingertips together, and let’s do three clicks because let’s go and stay there…click…click…click… (1)

LaHoChi Prayer: (2)

Divine Source, Mother/Father/God, we call forth ourselves into the light,
We call forward a clearing, we call forth the illuminant, radiant form of our souls
To the light of Christ and the Holy Spirit
To guide, direct and take us into the spiritual heart of God
And to bring forth joy, peace, and love
Within ourselves individually and collectively.
We call forth the cooperative spirit of unity
The light, love, and wisdom of LaHoChi
The LaHoChi Master, the Council of Love, the angels and archangels
Of pure consciousness, and all beings of the light of the highest
To assist us individually and collectively.
We call forth the healing and that which is our next step
In spiritual growth for our highest good.
We give thanks to the Holy Spirit
For our transmutation and transformation
Through the light, through the divine light.
We give thanks for perfect alignment
Within our spirit, soul, and personality.
We come together in one unifying energy
As one heart, one mind, one will, and one light.
Amen. Amen. And amen.

And staying in your heart I want you to feel that connection with this whole circle…………..as one circle like an infinity sign giving and receiving, open and receive. And now, together as one circle we turn out to the larger population, to the collective, to all who are Gaian – hybrids, earth-keeper, starseed…you name it. And then, to Gaia herself, to all the kingdoms, to the water, to the earth, to the air, to the fire, let’s send our love, let’s send our healing.

Breathe magenta, and blow out magenta. Breathe in pink and blow out pink. Breathe in the Healers of Tralana, all that sparkly light, and blow it out. And breathe in the purest white light you have ever seen, you can possibly imagine…bring it right in, into your heart, your crown, your tissues, your cells, your organs, your bones…breathe it in and send it out.

Now, think of your deepest desire, of what your heart deeply yearns for, what you are choosing to create…and I want this to be personal – no, Lao Tzu and St. Germaine want it to be personal. What do you want, desire? What do you need? Now, breathe it in as that white light, breathe it in and anchor it. Breathe down into your heart…instead of out, breathe down…hold it…drop it down into your solar plexus and whoosh it out!

Channeling:

Greetings, I AM Lao Tzu, friend and ally, ancient one, yes, Keeper, Master of the LaHoChi. For what is this? LaHoChi is light and love, the movement, the flow, the balance that you conduct, that we conduct, that all conducts.

My beloved brother, St. Germaine, whom I have known by many other names…we are an odd pair, are we not?…a frail, wiry, old Chinese man and a flamboyant Frenchman who sometimes is British or American…he is like a chameleon. But both of us bring you this gift of balance…you cannot be in the balance if you are not in the flow. And sweet friends, that means not only when you are in movement or in action, it also means when you are in the balance of stillness, of stillpoint, of intent, or anything else in this great creation of Source.

When you are out of balance it is a conscious, and sometimes unconscious, attempt to quench, or to stop, or to stench the flow. Frankly my friends, it is a rather petulant, egoic move, is it not?… to think that you would stop what the Mother, and the Father, and the One have created. There is no stopping it.

And when you attempt to do this, when any being, whether it is a stick or a tree, a branch or a dog, a human or a caterpillar, when any being attempts to stop the flow, the imbalance occurs…what you think of often as disease…dis-ease in every sense of the word. And that results in death, it results in non-participation, it results in not being present, not only to those, and all, that is around you, to the Mother, to the Father, to your circle, it stops you from being present in your life.

And think of this, yes, Source does have a hand, ultimately, in the creation of all things, but you have also had a significant hand in the creation of your life. And even, dearest hearts, in the creation of what you may or may not wish to participate in when you attempt to halt that flow and throw yourselves, and many, into this place of imbalance.

When you find yourself in this, come to your center, come to your heart, come to your hara, come to your head, to your third eye, to your root. Go wherever is necessary and discern, without the judgement that stopped the flow in the first place, discern why you are choosing to step out of this infinite, eternal flow of the cosmos. Consider this.

Yes, you are but a speck, as am I, in the Mother’s cosmos, in the omniverse. But also, you are a critical element of that pattern, of that creation. That is why you continue life after life, day after day, minute after minute to continue on…because you love, regardless of circumstances, you love being part of that pattern. You love your fellow specks of dust. And ultimately, you love what you have created in tandem with All.

So, when you find yourself stymied or wishing to halt, very quickly look at ‘what is it that I am not fond of, that I wish to change?’ As soon as you do that you are back in the flow because change is flow. So, as soon as you begin that process of eliminating the resistance, you are back in the flow.

Oh, you may not have the secrets or the solutions to the cosmos but you are in process. And when you add the LaHoChi, when you add the 13th Octave, when you add the implosion/explosion of your stillpoint and ours, there is no stopping you…that would be the strangest illusion of all.

It would be reverting back to when the emperor thought he could actually control the minds and hearts of the people. This is not possible…not in any reality or regime. Light will continue to flow, and love will continue to heal, and to fuel your heart, your mind, your being.

So, if you feel that you are stuck, or that you are tempted to be stuck…because it is a choice…dear friends, turn to me, I will help you rebalance, I will heal that broken dream, I will heal your broken heart and whatever else ails you for I am with you.

I may be quiet but I am not absent. Go with my blessing. Farewell.

Will We be Given Assistance? – Steve Beckow

Shelter Of The Sacred by Shiloh Sophia McCloud

💙

Will We be Given Assistance?

The Federation of Light has answered an important question for me – and perhaps for you: Will we be given divine assistance to carry out our tasks, many of which may be global in nature?

They reply:

“The Federation of Light through Blossom Goodchild, Aug. 5, 2019,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2019/08/05/the-federation-of-light-through-blossom-goodchild-aug-5-2019/.

YOUR WORDS WILL FLOW OFF YOUR TONGUE AS YOU ARE DIVINELY GUIDED IN YOUR ASSISTING WAYS.

Many of you will be quite surprised yourselves, at what is being said … through you.

All that you have ‘remembered’ in ways of these messages being the reminder, you shall ‘have on call’ in your heart files!

For years you have been storing information, some of which you may not know you know … and when EACH DIVINE MOMENT PRESENTS ITSELF … you will be there to offer guidance to those who feel so lost.

Many of you will find a strength arise from within and find yourselves in the most ‘unexpected positions’ … that will feel so natural to/for you.

They will be so because these will be the positions you signed up for before you came, should you so choose to see them through. Some will have fallen away from their ‘position’s role.’ There is no judgement on this.

Those whose hearts are TRUE will find their way home, assisting others in a different fashion, that is more suited to their disposition upon the Planet for them now….

We have mentioned that it shall be like a domino effect. Everything will come crashing down like a ton of bricks. And when all is flattened … one shall be able to see right through … IT ALL.

Take into your knowing that as this takes place … YOUR STRENGTH shall increase to the degree that you allow it to.

BG: Could you elaborate on that, please?

Indeed. Inside of Each One of you NOW … as you are reading these words … you are FEELING a ‘change … of/in … heart.’

This is because your Being is reacting to THE ENERGY that is being sent through to you in these coded words.

BG: Hold on a minute … I can’t keep up. Coded words? They seem quite straight forward to me.

Yet ‘within them’ … there are underlying codes that are willingly activating your souls.

Leading you into the next phase of yourselves. Reawakening the parts of your Being that needed to remain ‘switched off’ until such times as this.

“YOUR STRENGTH shall increase to the degree that you allow it to.” I’ve been preparing for this day. You’ve been preparing for it. It appears that our willingness will prove to be the key to our future/further expansion.

The reverse seems also true: That people’s unwillingness will prevent their further expansion.

I personally found Blossom’s message the most helpful overview of where we are and what’s coming down the pike that I’ve heard from a channeled source recently.

It fits with what Archangel Michael said to me in my reading with him on Aug. 2, 2019.

It was an entirely different reading than I’ve ever had. While all along he’s been  encouraging me to dream big (UBIs, retiring national debts, universal medicare, etc.), now he was reining me in – saying that others would retire their own nation’s national debts and host their own UBIs. Furthermore, what I envision would take much planning first. Again the signal was to slow down, get real, gear up for actual business rather than just dreaming.

He also said that my hearing was being expanded so that I could hear him, Annastara (my twin flame), and the Mother. If that were to happen, it’d be the single most welcome event I can think of. But it also makes sense in terms of ramping up for real-world work.

My suspicion is that, if it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others as well. (1)

Michael’s message this time was more a call to action than a planning session.

Taking Blossom’s message in hand, it feels as if we’re close to beginning in earnest.  Not like any prediction I’ve made to date has come true however.  Let the buyer beware.

Nevertheless, once again, we who are left take up our kit and begin to march. And hope that this time, events will actually begin to happen.

The fallout from the Epstein case and the DECLAS, plus the possibility of the Reval or  delivery of Prosperity Packages, plus the delegations – bring it on! We’re more than ready. We’re champing at the bit.

Abnormal is Normal and Normal is Abnormal – Steve Beckow

heart rainbow colours - art by Keith Allen Kay at Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala - signed artist

Artist ~ Keith Allen Kay @ Quantum Fractal Energy Mandala

❤💜

Abnormal is Normal and Normal is Abnormal

You who have been following my Ascension ethnography for the last month or two will know that … I’ve become normal again.

And what is “normal”? OK, for me, “normal” is reflecting my original design, which by the way is innocence and purity (1) – as is yours – as much as is possible. Obviously time has worked some changes on my body and probably on my mind. Not on my heart. I’m not aiming for perfection but workability.

In that arena, I feel wonderful.

Workability is part of normality and a stepping stone to perfection. Perfection is being our original design of innocence and purity. I could assert that: Normality = workability.

So I’m aiming for workability for now.

Listen. I felt miserable for most of my life. It has only occurred to me, as a result of the work I’ve done online for the last month or two, that how I was feeling was not normal.

People did not have to feel the way I was feeling. But I didn’t see that. I thought, in my mistaken way, that the miserable way I was feeling was normal.

Can you see the amount of work it took to reach a place of feeling normal again?

I want to run down the road, naked, screaming! Lock me up! Either the world is crazy or I am! Most likely me! Lock me up!

And to find at the end that the angels are not there to greet me, raise me up, and give me a golden crown. Not, St. Stephen, Stephen. Turn off the TV.

Thank you. Now you’re normal.

Who would have thought such a thing?

And  then at the end of it all … to find myself in a place called “Normal”?  Normal hasn’t been sexy since the 50s. You’re riding into battle and your  banner reads “Normal”? Whaddya? Insane?

“Normal” today is decidedly abnormal.  Abnormal is normal. Just text anyone about it.

NEVERTHELESS, feeling normal after a lifetime of misery is absolutely wonderful.

I highly and heartily recommend it to anyone who is so deeply mired in sorrow and misery that only suicide is the alternative. Does that ring a bell with anyone out there? It should.

Normal is the new normal.

We have to take back control of lives and get ourselves back. We have to stop looking to the outside world to do it for us.

The destination is “Normal.” The water is warm. The living is wonderful.

Most Important Thing – Steve Beckow

Soaking In Glory by Tamer & Cindy Elsharouni @ Fine Art America

✨✨✨

Most Important Thing

 

Some ideas we return to again and again. They’re like Rubics cubes that we’re trying to solve.

This idea is one of them.

I’m becoming convinced that, though we often don’t know it and even might deny it, the most important thing to most humans is how we feel.

It isn’t money. It isn’t travel. It isn’t food. It’s how we feel.

We buy trips to Disneyland or Caribbean cruises because we’re told how we’ll feel and it looks and sounds great. We’re provided with an experience that leaves us feeling (X).

Though I loved going to Disneyland as a child, I’m no longer attracted to places that promise a certain experiment for once.

I go directly for the experience now.

Bliss is probably my favorite example. Bliss – and all the divine qualities or forms of love – arise from the heart.

News flash: Everything good arises from the heart.  Michael said:

“It begins and it ends with – it always comes back to – the heart. You know this.” (1)

I can summon bliss up on the inbreath, provided I allow it to flow out on the outbreath. Bliss, like love, must flow.

Having had a heart opening, experienced the inner tsunami, and drowned myself in the Ocean of Love, all of which exist in the opened heart, yes, I do know where it always comes back to.

The heart opening may be the solar wave that Blossom Goodchild’s Federation predicted.

“IMAGINE DEAREST ONES … THE LOVE YOU ARE TO EXPERIENCE WHEN THE MOST IMMENSE WAVE OF LOVE FLOWS OVER AND INTO YOUR PLANET … SHOWERING EVERYTHING THAT RESIDES IN AND UPON IT WITH ALL THAT IT IS … LOVE … CHANGING EVERYBODY, EVERYTHING … FOREVER. …

“Once ‘The Wave’ has been sent out … it shall be like a ripple effect upon the Planet and also, as if releasing the initial Wave allows then … the ‘breakthrough’ … the Freedom … for the Energy stored up behind it, to flow through, also.

“THIS ENCOUNTER SHALL FILL YOUR BEINGS WITH A LOVE THAT YOU HAD FORGOTTEN. …

“It shall arrive at the Divine moment … when it is most poignantly in position to do so and be released.” (2)

Last year, Michael said that he and the Federation are talking about the same thing:

Steve: is the Heart Opening what Blossom Goodchild’s sources are specifically talking about when they use the word, “The Event”?

AAM: There are slight variations on the theme, but, yes, it is very similar. It is the heart opening, yes. (3)

I know the love that the Federation is describing. It came as a river to me, a tsunami, rather than a solar wave as it’s coming in the future. And mine did not come from the Sun. Well, I say that, but I don’t know where the kundalini energy came from. It simply began running up my leg.

But after the heart opening, love and bliss definitely came thereafter from my heart. Different events but resulting in the same treasured outcome: A heart opening.

However we manage to coax the heart’s aperture – which Hindus call the hridayam – open doesn’t matter. Walk into the lake, Sri Ramakrishna used to say, jump into the lake, get pushed in. The important thing is to get into the lake of bliss and immortality. (4)

That lake exists in our hearts. Our hearts are an endless artesian well of higher-dimensional love, “a love that you had forgotten.” Definitely.

I also know that the heart shelters the Self, Christ or Atman in its depths, in the “seat of the soul.” (5) Insofar as the One has individuated as a spark of God and assumes a physical form, the heart shelters it.

After this solar wave that Blossom’s sources predict, which the Mother predicted a few years ago calling it a planetary heart opening, we’ll feel free, filled with love, all of it arising from our hearts.

At that point what I said at the beginning will probably seem obvious. Why do I even need to say it?

The most important thing to human beings is how they feel – though they might not admit it.

Drawing love up from the open heart is like having a car that runs on free energy. Being bathed in this love permanently, which to me would be Ascension, cannot be compared to anything in our known experience.

I wasn’t bathed permanently, but given a six-month dip in the Ganges. It was more than enough to make everything the sages say make perfect sense.

What’s missing is our experience of this higher-dimensional love. It’s missing from everything we think, see, feel, hear, touch, and intuit. When that’s in place, as the events that the Federation and the Mother have predicted will ensure, oh, I can’t find words for what it’ll be like then. Everything about it is entirely unknown to our society, except by a few.

If I were in it, I’d need no words. Out of it, I can’t find words. Yet I will not give up trying.

(4) It isn’t actually correct to say it makes us immortal because we always are and always were immortal. What it results in is an increase in dimensionality that removes us from the mortality cycle. There is no death on the Fifth Dimension.

Only a full and permanent heart opening, which is called Sahaja Samadhi, produces this result.

I’m a Believer -Steve Beckow

I’m a Believer

Here it is a beautiful sunny Sunday. I’m sitting here saying to myself, you should go outside.

I don’t want to go outside. I’m lying here waiting. But for what?

After looking and looking, what I see inside is that I’m wanting to feel a certain way. That’s what I’m looking for. Not just being in a certain place, no matter how beautiful and sunny.

In fact I’d rather be relaxed right now, just being with myself, rather than doing anything. Being with myself is what I’m doing.

As I look at the matter, I realize that how I feel is of the utmost importance to me. If it weren’t, it should be.

When I harm people, I commit myself to an inner life of stress and tension, guilt and self-recrimination. I hurt myself.

It’s finally become too much for me. I’m a prime example of someone changing in the face of the rising energies, letting go of the old, unproductive ways because they hurt too much.

Now that I’m not harming people – and I’ve had lapses – there’s no guilt or self-recrimination.

And what I notice, when I really look, is that I care a great deal about how I feel.  I don’t want to be feeling stress and tension or guilt and recrimination any more. I don’t like feeling those ways.

I want to feel joy. I want to feel bliss. I want to feel safe and secure. And all these are available inside, not outside, of me.

In my meditation these days, I’m treating my inner realm as if it were a room I lived in. I’m polishing the teak walls as an act of purification.  If I feel bad in some respect, I polish the walls until the feeling is experienced through to completion. Imagination is creative thought on the Fifth Dimension.

***

I see clear as a bell that making a vow to harm no one created space for me. And in the space thus created, feeling states that I can’t normally access I now can. Bliss is coming up. Happiness.  I even feel joy. The water is truly warm.

Man, was this the world’s best kept secret? Am I the last to know? Ahimsa (non-violence) creates space, in which the divine qualities can arise?

I’ll be darned. Shout it from the rooftops! I’m a believer.
