At the “End” and Only Beginning

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Earth Day, Mother Gaia!

Thank you, Kathleen, for hosting this event.

Thank you, the reader, for allowing Kathleen, Suzi, Sitara, and me to explore the subject.

***

If I were to make my graduation report to you, I’d say that the predominant thing I notice as a result of the work I did is that I’m less scripted, less mechanical, less contrived.

Holding fewer resentments by forgiving the people in my life – even though I know the job is not done by a country mile – has me literally and figuratively breathing easier.

Figuratively because I’m not manning my defenses against certain people any more. I don’t have my guard up. Even though I still have boundaries.

Literally because there are fewer (if not no) impediments to my breath at the moment.

Ease of breath for me means ease of love. And I have felt love flow more fully.

I could live with this if it continues. If it gets better, I’m a happy guy.

***

Forgiveness is a divine quality. Only a divine quality causes the person to deepen and broaden as Knowledge of that quality grows.

The deeper we forgive, the deeper we become. But also the more we see that the depth of forgiveness itself is probably virtually endless. Coterminous with what we think of as God.

And, as Kathleen reminds me, the Mother forgives everything. I’m game.

Eventually, all of us will forgive everything because Ascension to the higher dimensions sweeps away all sense of violation and resentment, guilt and remorse. (1)

All slates are instantly wiped clean by the inner tsunami of Love, all memory of perpetrations gone. It’s as if we passed through a beam in the doorway (aboard ship) that instantly sanitizes us.

In point of fact, there’ll be nothing to forgive in the sea of Love. And so forgiveness itself will sit idle in our toolbox.

We here are just wanting to get there early and under a bit of our own steam. (2) It’s probably about as much steam as a baby walking, with the parent’s finger holding them up.

***

I only scratched the surface of forgiveness in these past 21 days. (Yes, self-forgiveness is coming.)

I’ve also had breakthroughs in other areas made possible by forgiveness – a direct benefit – and I’m impressed.

Nevertheless, the point has been proven to me that life goes better with forgiveness. I’m no longer a “bah-humbug” resenter of humans, a gunnysacker. I no longer drag around Morley’s chain. And I’m no longer drinking the poison of resentment and wishing others would die.

I take up this tool of forgiveness and then I don’t take it up. I’m a little haphazard. But Kathleen takes it up with consistency, determination, and fervor.

Don’t follow me in the matter. Follow her.

Happy 21 Days of Forgiveness! And Happy Valentines Day to you and Gaia!

Deconstructing the Constructed Self through Observation – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Deconstructing the Constructed Self through Observation

As I forgive myself more, and allow myself to be, I’m seeing my constructed self from a new vantage point.

I see the effects on channeling my energy in certain directions of the unconscious gestures I assume with my face. Everything we call an “expression” expresses me in some way.

The overall presentation I make is directed by my attitude, my leaning, my preference. I push myself in a certain direction motivated by my preferences.

But all of this channels or canalizes me. It creates a channel in which I have to flow.

I may not want to flow in that channel. (1) In fact I know I don’t.

I don’t want to flow in any channel, via any constructed self.

I’m deconstructing my constructed self using the tools of my awareness.

One of those tools is telling the truth at as deep a level as I can, which I’ve been doing.

Another is to sit in observation of something until it lifts.

Another is to reframe or recontextualize it, which I did with an injury recently.

I’m drawn to meditation at the moment and so I choose to sit in the silence and stillness and be the witness of whatever arises.

I’m choosing to observe the self, observe the channeling of energies, observe my moods, thoughts, feelings….

Reflections on the Awareness Game -Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Reflections on the Awareness Game

Light, love, and awareness are names for three divine qualities as we experience them from our vantage point.

Viewed from the One’s natural state, I have no doubt that things appear entirely different. But we’re not there at this moment. We’re here, down in Fourth Dimensionality, where the living is dense. We see Light, feel Love, and are aware.

I was trained in the awareness game at Cold Mountain Institute, on a three-month resident fellowship, and in the est Training.

I found that awareness dissolved unwanted conditions and allowed one to realize the truth. That truth might be the truth of a situation or a deep truth of Self-Realization. Realizations can be minor and major.

I enjoyed the awareness path the most. Others who follow it are Zen practitioners, Vedantists. western neo-advaitins, Enlightenment Intensive participants, etc.

What is the awareness game?

A game is about obtaining something that is felt to be or represented as being more important or valuable than something we already have. In our case, we make it better to be aware than to be unaware, to be more aware than we are rather than to rest in our relative unawareness, etc.

What the primary agreement of those who play the awareness game is is to remain aware, at all times, of ourselves and to be honest in owning or acknowledging what we’re thinking, feeling, and doing.

It doesn’t take long to see that there are levels of awareness, which I’ve written about on other occasions: the intellectual, experiential, and realizational.  The awareness student wishes to be Self-Realized and so pushes awareness up the ladder from ideas to experiences to realizations.

The student of awareness labors to expand their awareness outwards and inwards. Whatever enters their field of awareness is observed. Distinctions become clear from the simple act of observing. The awareness student doesn’t force that process but simply takes what awareness gives them.

The awareness student knows especially the dissolving power of awareness. Paint one’s issues with it (that is, bestow one’s aware attention on it), allow awareness to do its dissolving work, and the issues disappear. (They may return but they disappear in the moment.)

As all one’s issues settle down, the need to be vigilant, to defend one’s self, to have a comeback, a strategy, or a winning number disappear.  The ego finds less and less work and may be found nodding off in the corner for lack of tasks to accomplish.

Finally our awareness becomes like a monk in deep meditation – one-pointed, totally open, and receptive.

Awareness has its tools. Here are two.

I use my in-breath to tell me how I’m doing. If my breath is easy, I’m happy. If my breath is labored, I have issues that I haven’t cleared.

Here’s another tool. I listen to myself for short sentences that are actually commands to myself. If I hear one, I make a note of it and ask the mind where it originated. I raise to awareness everything I can about the command, the vasana it relates to, the decisions I’ve made out of it, etc.

What’s my reward?

I’m experiencing it right now. I just took a breath and a wave of bliss came up from what I believe to be my heart (I don’t actually know. It comes from inside me).

Here I am now, in bliss, and I can tell you, there’s nothing additional I want at this moment. Living life eternally in bliss or love, peace or joy is our destination, is it not? Is that not what Ascension is?

Security as a Created State – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Gratitude to artist

Security as a Created State

I was musing on something this morning when I noticed a deeply-buried state within me. This is the second time this has happened in the last few days. (1)

Last time it was anger. This time it was a hungering for security. For a while I was most focused on experiencing the hungering. But then I noticed something. I had mentioned the word “security.” That implied that I had some knowledge of it.

So I asked myself to experience security and report on it. And memories flooded in, going back to nestling with Mother as an infant. I knew what security is.

Not only that – not only that I had a memory of it – but also I created the experience of security in this moment. I saw myself do it.

One moment I was feeling as insecure as I always do. Insecurity was a deeply-buried background state – the “background of obviousness,” “unconscious awareness,” Werner called it.

And then the subject of security was brought up and, in pondering it, I found the experience of security in my memory banks and created the experience of it – by an act of will.

Therefore, just as I am the source of love, I must also be the source of my own feeling of security. And it’s the feeling of security we’re all looking for, is it not? Never mind the baubles. How do we feel?

Let me recap on the levels of knowledge. The intellectual level has me get the idea of something but my comprehension remains cerebral. My writing is dry and at best conveys some useful information.

The experiential level sees me feel into things and flow with the feelings I observe, to get the experience of them, inside and out. The awareness path proceeds at the experiential level.

The realizational level sees one reach a deep understanding of the truth of something and experience a discontinuous improvement – usually a radical expansion – in the experience of love, bliss, and wellbeing. Vedanta, Zen, Sufism, all sincere spiritual paths proceed at the realizatiional level.

There can be minor and major realizations. (2) But each of them makes a lasting impact on us.

While I’ve had realizations – as we all have – I’m not in a realized state.

But I do create my feeling states. I see that now.

Tell me some bad piece of news and I’ll generate righteous indignation. Tell me some heart-wrenching story and I’ll weep.

And by the same token I create my own sense of threat and security.

My head is reeling from these realizations.

If I didn’t write these matters down, there’d be no record of them. The memory would be lost. My recall doesn’t extend beyond a few hours these days. Nor does that of many people around me. I’m taking these as Ascension symptoms.

Get it and lose it. Get it and lose it, Werner Erhard would say. (3)

Loss upon loss, Lao Tzu would say, until at long last comes rest. (4)

Footnotes

(1) the last time I noticed a deeply-buried vein of anger, that was always with me in the background and colored everything. Again my “scared wolf” look arises from this. The scared wolf captures the close relationship between fear and anger. The angry mind protects the fearful child.  I traced it back to my Father and began another round of forgiveness work.

(2) The major realization we’re all headed for is Ascension, Sahaja Samadhi. It’s mukti, liberation from life and death, Fifth Dimensionality.

(3) When asked if the experience of “getting it” (realization) would last, Werner replied:

“The answer is ‘no’ – and ‘yes.’ ‘Getting it’ is not simply a ‘peak experience.’

“Ultimately, it is knowing from your own experience, that, whatever your circumstances, you have the power to transform the quality of your life at any moment of time.

“Thus, transformation or enlightenment is not merely a one-time event, but something which continues to unfold and be available to you as a part of everyday living.” (Questions people ask about the est Training. est, 1977, n.p.)

Transform the quality of our lives…. From insecurity to security?

(4) The Way is gained by daily loss,
Loss upon loss until
At last comes rest.

By letting go, it all gets done;
The world is won by those who let it go!
But when you try and try,
The world is then beyond the winning.

( Lao-Tzu, The Way of Life (Tao Te Ching). Trans. R.B. Blakney. New York and Scarborough:
New American Library, 1955, 48, 101.)

Immersed in an Ocean of Love – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Water Painting by Antoine Renault

Immersed in an Ocean of Love – Part 2/2

Steve is on vacation until Jan. 11.

(Continued from Part 1.)

I’d like to continue looking at the feeling-level experience of love that I was immersed in the other day.

The space of love and bliss seemed unshakeable. I noticed that, while in it, I made choices, but without preferences. I was in what Sosan and Krishnamurti called choiceless awareness.  Just being here with nothing added. Acting without acting. Remaining centered. Doing what worked and whatever I did worked.

I saw then, a little more strongly than I do now – since I’m not in that space any longer – that I’m entirely a form made by love from itself, immersed in a sea of love.

I saw all traces of  “I want” (ego and desire) disappear.

The fact that I had no preferences was very important.  Preferences are not bad but they take us away from our center point, the stillpoint, the heart.

Away from the heart is another way of saying away from love. Going away from the heart is what Jesus called distraction:

“Come back to what is important. And that is, you are love. It is all you have ever been. Everything else — everything else, every other lifetime — is just a distraction.” (1)

We distract ourselves endlessly from the love that we are and that’s present in our very own hearts. And then we wonder why we feel so low or down or awful.

Preferences end up being a distraction from love, from our natural state. The only reason there isn’t a hue and cry raised and a global campaign started to restore love to all our lives is that so few of us have experienced transformational love. Hardly any of us know it exists. We know romantic love does but that’s the merest shadow of the other.

I’ve experienced transformational love around two dozen times in spiritual experiences prior to this latest, extended round.  But these earlier years covered mere minutes a year. And then the memory faded away and I was back to normal again.

And this would be after weeks, months and years of intense work in workshops and retreats. The real kicker is that each of these experiences repaid years of spiritual work.

I noticed the other day, as I flirted with my preferences, that it caused me to withdraw from the space of love. I could have kept going with the experiment but I probably would have found myself entirely out of the experience of love and back in lower vibrations again.

Viewed from another angle, love is the only thing we can desire that’s free. Everything else carries a karmic price tag.

I’ve already been using Archangel Michael’s blue sword of truth to cut away all attachments from the external part of my body each morning in meditation.

But preferences feel as if they’re on the inside. I now use Michael’s blue sword on the inside of my body too, to remove all preferences. And, yes, I really find it works.

Basically we have to eliminate every form of tie that keeps us in the lower vibrations  – preferences, strong desires, attachments and addictions. We have to remain in our centers.  Not like I’m so great at this. I’m not. But I’m getting better.

When we cut all preferences, we remain in the heart and exist in our natural, native state – which is love.

Sahaja samadhi, which this was not, is also our “natural state.”  I take it this time spent in bliss was just a nibble, a hint, a gift of the angels.

I remained in the loving state as I went about my errands in Vancouver.  Everything was different. Every interaction worked. If the whole world felt this way and lived it, the world would instantly work. This is what it will take – transformational love and bliss – to make the world work.

Immersed in an Ocean of Love – Part 1/2

Steve-at-Horseshoe-Bay-200x200Steve is on vacation until January  11.

You may wish to compare this account to Bright Star’s. (1)

A few days before I went through the experience of bliss described in “I Could Get Used to This,” (2) I went through almost a full day immersed in an ocean of love.

It was at an experiential and not a realized level but it was still very pleasant. It was at a lower level of experience than the later one.

Nonetheless, my experience closely fit what Third Zen Patriarch Sosan describes here:

The Great Way is effortless
for those who live in choiceless awareness
To choose without preference
is to be clear.

Even the slightest personal preference
and your whole world becomes divided.
To perceive reality as it is
is to live with an open mind. (3)

What he says is so beautifully apt, but it’s very difficult, before one experiences the state he’s pointing at, to understand what he’s saying and why he says it. But the minute you’re in the space of love – that is, flooded with love because love is no miser – what he’s saying becomes crystal clear.

I’ll do my best to explain.  One can remain in the center, in the balance point, in the heart and still choose. This is what he refers to as “choiceless awareness.” One is simply present, but that doesn’t preclude one’s ability to say “yes” or “no” to something.

But one cannot remain in the center and have preferences. Preferences, by their very nature, take us out of the center and give us a leaning. To stay in the center, we must lean neither to the left nor to the right.

One could argue with life and say “That isn’t fair. I should have the right to my preferences.” And we do. But it still doesn’t matter. We simply cannot experience the deeper states that depend on stillness of the mind  – the windless place, the still water – if we insist on hankering for, being drawn to, and pursuing this or that in the material world.

Preference is an aspect of desire. Because we’ve enjoyed something, we desire to have it again. Preference is desire projected into the future.

Our preference is the leaning towards that thing that we generate to remind us that we want it next time we encounter it. It increases our likelihood of getting it again.

The quieting down of preference came as a feature of a space that I was in from the moment I woke up till about 4 in the afternoon.

I keep saying this next thing over and over again. Yes, I’m repeating myself. It’s because the distinction is so important, so connected to understanding what Sosan is saying.

It’s the space that eliminates preferences. It’s the space that immerses one in bliss. We tend to think that what we do and don’t do is important for enlightenment. No, it’s the space itself that needs to be recognized.  Here I go again repeating Sri Ramakrishna’s apt analogy: Walk into the lake. Run into the lake. Jump into the lake. The important thing is to get ourselves into the lake, the space.

Another word for space would be vibration, frequency. I suppose you could also say dimension and plane of existence.

We need to take our attention off the doer and notice the space.  Gosh, I’m not sure if I put that clearly. It’s so hard to describe the features of the internal landscape.

When we notice the space and the importance of it rather than of what we do or don’t do, then we start to allow and surrender to the space. Hallelujah! We found it.

And when we find ourselves in bliss, we have no desires and so no preferences or issues or trauma and drama. But then, if, in the space, we generate a preference and attach to it, we’re drawn back into the world of strong choices, which takes us away from our center, which takes us out of the space, out of the bliss, out of the love.

Yes, that’s as clearly as I could possibly put it.

That doesn’t mean I’m suggesting you stop personal development and just sit there regarding the space. No, go on about things as you’ve been doing. I’m simply asking for a change of one idea for another. Just one idea, out of billions.

Change your mind on which of these two is more important to enlightenment: (1) Our personal efforts; i.e., what we do or don’t do, and (2)  Our personal recognition of and surrender to the space.

I say it’s the latter. Maybe that’s why enlightened beings break out into laughter when they realize what it took to become enlightened: simple surrender to and recognition of the space of what we today would call “higher dimensionality.” The space that is always there which we ignore.

I maintain that all of what I’ve just said is what Sosan is pointing to.

I’d like to circle back now and examine the space more and talk more about what it taught me about preferences, in a continuation of this article, tomorrow.

Activating the Wellspring – Part 2/2

Steve is on vacation. Reposted from March 15, 2015.

(Continued from yesterday)

Later in the same reading of March 13, 2015, I returned to the topic of the spiritual experience that I was in the middle of (and still am) because I wanted further reassurance.

AAM gives a lot more information on this space or state of being, which he described earlier as a “heart opening” and the beginning stages of Ascension. Thanks again to Dana.


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


Steve Beckow: So, I need more reassurance. You are reassuring me that this space that I’m in right now will not suddenly disappear tomorrow. This is the baseline now, correct?

Archangel Michael: That is correct. Hold it, love it. Allow it to grow. Cherish it. Do not think for one moment, “Oh tomorrow I’ll wake up tired, grumpy and wasted.” Do not go there, dear heart.

S: Also, it seems to be affected by breathing. Breathing helps. It seems to cause it to expand. Is that an accurate observation?

AAM: It is the letting go.

S: The letting go. So in breathing in, am I letting go of the tension? (1)

AAM: You are letting go and you are bringing in. It is a simple as that. But of course it is not.

Breathwork, as you well know, (2) has always been the most straightforward and one of the most powerful of tools. It is the essence of life. You cannot live without your breath.

But what people have not truly, fully understood (just like they have not understood the space between the letters of each word, not understood the space between each atom and cell of their body), the breath, the air, the oxygen, the compound that you are breathing in is the love force. (3)

Now what happens, (this is something for you to share) is that you are breathing love force, quite literally, from the Divine. Then what happens, or what has occurred, in what you think of as your past (now the key; do not go and live in the past). It has passed through what we would call the denial filter.

The denial filter is your filter that has been filled with the constructs of the old Third: fear, control, sense of lack of worth, sense of lack of love… It passes through that. You can even think of it as being like a filter that is in your sinus, the top, the back of your throat. And it passes through the denial filter, so when you bring it in, you are only getting a minimal part of what is being offered.

S: And that’s our programming, by the way.

AAM: That is the programming.

It is like when someone says to you, even when I say to you, “I love you” and then you immediately put all these restrictions or limitations on it. So often among humans it is, “Oh, you love me because…” and it is not [so]. It is simply … love.

S: Yes, yes, yes. And when one sees that, it’s such an amazing thing to realize. That real and transformative love has no object except as we call it into service. But unto itself, it has no preference, no partiality.

AAM: None.

S: So, what is next? What do you want me to do next?

AAM: What is next is the anchoring, the allowing of this sense of unity to simply expand and anchor, expand and anchor. Go higher, go deeper, go broader and, celebrate, sweet angel.

S: The predominant way I go broader, etc., is by writing, right?

AAM: That is correct!

S: I share my space. I share what’s happening…

AAM: It is our platform!

S: Okay. Very good. Thank you for that. Anything else I haven’t touched upon that I should know about?

AAM: You are in your process of expansion, of allowing, of becoming, of accepting the sweetness of who you are.

Often you have said to me, “Oh Lord, I am a warrior.” But beloved, you are so much more!

Allow every aspect of your being – the poet, the lover, the artist, the child, the adult, the elder – let it ALL be [expressed].

Let it all come to flower and share it all. Demonstrate and share and show what is possible. (4)

For this I thank you.

S: Thank you, Lord. Thank you ever so much.

AAM: I love you, dear heart.

S: I love you, Lord.

AAM: Farewell

Note: Already one reader has written in saying she had a similar experience:

“Dear Steve

“On Friday I felt this loving energy expanding out from my chest. I felt secure and I knew this was the time to give birth to the new, to grow and do my part. I have been waiting for this all my life. Sometimes I had this experience only for a short time. If now as Archangel Michael said, it’s going to be permanent we literally have the sacred fuel that we need to do what we came here to do.”

The experience may be permanent but its intensity or fulness does wane. It can be brought back to its fulness by breathing in love from the heart (or from the air) and breathing that same love out to the world, as AAM discusses in the reading.

Footnotes

(1) Muscular tension in the body is the cause of lowered awareness. Awareness varies inversely proportional to tension in the body. The Divine Mother said on last week’s Hour with an Angel: “Density of the human form is caused by unloving emotions.” The bands of muscular tension we create by our counterproductive programming is this density. (“Transcript of the Divine Mother: Density is Unloving Emotion; Love is Lightness of Being,” March 6, 2015, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/03/06/transcript-of-the-divine-mother-density-is-unloving-emotion-love-is-lightness-of-being/.)

(2) I’ve done rebirthing, bioenergetics, vipassana, and probably several other practices with some relationship to breathwork. So, yes, I do know the power and importance of the breath. If I have the time after the Reval, I’d like to do some work reviving these almost-lost arts.

(3) Therefore, I don’t need to be drawing love up from the heart. Love is the very air we breathe.

(4) This is about the clearest, real-life example of a mission being assigned that I’ve seen.

Activating the Wellspring – Part 1/2

 

Steve is on vacation. Reposted from March 14, 2015.

The next two articles relate to the experience of the heart opening I had on March 13, 2015. I had a reading with Archangel Michael scheduled for three hours after the experience occurred.

Part 2 is a later conversation in the same reading that touched on these matters again (to be posted tomorrow).


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


Archangel Michael: Greetings, I am Michael.

Steve: Greetings, Lord.

AAM: Welcome, welcome, welcome, to you, beloved friend, ally, anchor, communicator, bringer of news.

S: Thank you.

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

S: You mean permanently, Lord, really?

AAM: Yes

S: Oh my! Please!

AAM: Because, you have said yes!

S: Yes, I have. I definitely have said yes.

But you must give us details because I think other readers will want to know what just happened, and what the consequences are. Can you talk about it for a little bit for the sake of others?

AAM: Yes, we will talk about it.

As I, and we, have relayed, many are either at, or through, or back and forth through the Ascension portal. Now, we don’t want to talk about this strictly in terms of Ascension.

Because what you are doing is anchoring the higher vibration of divinity, of the Mother, of the Love, of the One into your sacred being, into your consciousness, into every fiber and level of your being.

The feeling, the experience – because it is so much more than a feeling – the knowingness is actually very simple. It is love. In that, there are the elements of joy, of peace, of calm, of serenity…of simply being.

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. (1) 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.

S: I understand.

AAM: 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.

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 at all 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 this 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, to share; it is as if you have in fact activated what we call the wellspring. The visual you may think of is the volcano.

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!

S: It is hard for a human being to get that, you know. We keep thinking, “Oh no, someone’s going to turn the wheel and it’s going to stop.”

AAM: You tend to think of start-stop; of full-empty. But it is not the case. What you are doing is plugging into the ever present flow of the Mother’s energy, of the love.

S: Remarkable, remarkable. We human beings want to know where this fits in the scheme of things, and what its relationship is to this over there. Is there a name for this kind of experience I just went through? And still am, actually… And will be.

AAM: Yes, and will be. This is what you call part of your Ascension process and it will simply grow and expand.

S: What growing and expanding means is exactly what happened this morning, right?

AAM: That is exactly correct.

Then it begins to expand in what you can think of, in every body – mental, emotional – because there is no separation. So the physical attributes that are one and the same with love begin to come forth as well.

S: Okay, can we just go back over that for a second? I’m trying to get my mind around that.

So this transcendental wave of love that is coming to us is impacting all our bodies in all dimensions, the mental, causal, all the other bodies?

AAM: That is correct.

S: They are going forward together. Now I think you suggested there is an impact on the physical body or our everyday awareness from this. Is that what you were saying?

AAM: Yes, because you cannot be in this intensity (and do not turn it down whatever you do!)….

S: No, gosh! Why would anyone want to do that?

AAM: Well, we are often surprised!

What happens is, then you begin to see with different eyes. Then you begin to see more clearly. Humans have a tendency to think, “Oh, now I am seeing with my third eye,” “Now I am seeing with my fourth eye,” “Now I am seeing with my fifth eye.” It is not like that.

There is the inner vision, the experience of the inner vision which allows you to truly see what is, but you also began to see that, energetically. You will see more with your eyes. You will see orbs, different colours, bigger fields, etc.

S: Telepathy may also expand?

AAM: Exactly. Telepathy, communication ability. So think of your physical communication, your writing, your oral you, your telepathic, your soul-to-soul communication, your communication above and below begins to expand, your cellular structure, because it is vibrating at a different rate.

Your cellular structure begins to regenerate because it is filled with what you think of as life force. It is a truly love force. So everything begins to shift. You begin to see that you can be the truth of inter-dimensionality.

S: Yes, a sense of certainty arises, a sense of stability and solidity.

AAM: And you realize that it’s a solidity that is not solid at all!

S: No, I know! I was thinking of that even as I said it! Yes, absolutely.

AAM: It is a sense of knowingness. And, yes that stability means there is simply no space for the sense of doubt or uncertainty or even concern or fear.

S: Also, issues just disappear! There is no need for forgiveness because I can’t remember what the issues were! In this wave of love, this submergence of love, and I really do mean submergence, like I am under sea.

AAM: You do not need to remember.

S: No, no need at all! I wonder why I felt the need! (Laughing)

AAM: It was part of what we would refer to as the old human traits.

S: It is all a question of deprogramming, is it not?

AAM: In many ways, yes. What you are doing, is what you think of as deprogramming, unwinding the old programming; hitting the literal delete button; not simply saving it somewhere where you can go back and pick at it later. Yes, it is the reprogramming, the rebooting of your entire system.

S: I think people may not adequately realize, (oh, how can I say it; is so hard to talk about these things, they are so new to me) that forgiveness itself is tied to memory. If there is no memory, there is no need for forgiveness of anything. There are other factors too. This love does something to me that has me not be interested in the drama and the other things.

AAM: Because it does not serve. When you are thinking about forgiveness, think of it as a step along the way.

So when you have done your forgiving; and the most important part is forgiveness of self, then you can create if you choose, situations where you wish to keep score. But the larger question is, why? Why would one even choose to do that?

So often we hear the humans (to myself, to Gabrielle, but mostly to Yeshua or to the Divine Mother) begging for forgiveness. Now, understand that forgiveness is always granted, because it is an act of mercy. It is an act of love. But does the Mother have need to forgive? Does she keep a tally sheet? No!

S: No, as competent as she is!

AAM: As competent as she is, it would be far too lengthy!

So, no, it is not a trait. It is a plea for help. And that plea, of course, is always heard.

S: There is another aspect I would like to talk to about for a minute, and that is that I think people hearing a discussion like this might say to themselves, “That’s all fine and dandy for you to say. You’re living in the experience of love.”

And, that’s true; it’s true that it was very hard to deprogram while not living in the experience of love and it is very easy to think, “I don’t even need to deprogram in this space.”

AAM: It is difficult to reach this place, only because the human program as you are calling it (and this is an excellent term) is one that thinks, or feels (but it is [the] mental/emotional [body] that thinks) that, “That [outcome] is above, or beyond”.

When we suggest that there is a need to create this sense of spaciousness, so often what we hear is a resistance that says, “Well, I have already done my clearing. I have already done my forgiveness. I have already asked for help.”

But if you are not in this sense [space] of the love and knowing full well, beyond any shadow of any doubt in any realm, this is what you desire, this is why you are here to create – this sense – then simply go a little further, my friends. You do not walk alone. And the journey is guaranteed!

There are very few guarantees, but when you keep going, you will arrive!

S: Thank you!

Happy New Year, Everyone! – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Happy New Year, Everyone!

I’m taking a break from holidays to post a New Year’s greeting.

Happy New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day, everyone!

What would I like to say on New Year’s to everyone? What’s most important to say?

Besides having a good laugh, which is always enjoyable, what’s most important to say is how much I hope people will not lose the momentum in the New Year to pursue what terrestrial sages call “purification,” what I’ve called cleansing ourselves of our vasanas.

This is a longish read, but the subject is important. Perhaps read it in stages (hence the asterisks).

According to our enlightened teachers, purification is one of three phases of enlightenment. The first phase is sila or purification, often called washing the bowl or polishing the statue. That’s the phase we’re in now.

The second is samadhi or concentration.  Meditation is the most obvious form of concentration. But any path will have its form; e.g., karma yoga, sila, or service can involve concentration on love or forgiveness, as I’m watching in another.

The third is punya (punna), the arrival of the wisdom born of enlightenment after mukti, liberation from ignorance and density, Ascension, or Sahaja Samadhi.

I place value (and I know Kathleen does as well) on the process of purification; specifically, the cleansing of our vasanas or core issues.

All the spiritual work we’ve been doing over time has been concerned with removing the overburden that obscures the Self. I’m sure we both thank you for hearing us on this subject, which is dear to our hearts.

A big hoorah to all those folks who’ve taken workshops on the subject of core issues over the past year or read up on it, etc., and have been working away at processing – or eradicating – theirs. (1)

***

Purification, for me, is the road to balance. When we reduce ourselves to our balanced essence by processing our vasanas or core issues, we can be said to have “purified” ourselves.

There are so many synonyms for “processing our vasanas”: let go of our baggage, gotten to the bottom of our upsets, forgiven ourselves and others (the direct route), dropped our acts and numbers, stopped projecting onto others, stopped pointing the finger, emerged from our hatred and jealousy, gotten real, become personally responsible for our lives. These are all elements of or synonyms for eradicating our vasanas.

We’re removing that which veils or hides the inner Sun of the Self from us and allowing that inner tsunami of love that “Bright Star” described to flow, the torrent of which washes away all concern and anxiety.

This heart opening, as Bright Star describes it, is the goal:

“Suddenly, my heart opened up and by this, I mean it was like my heart exploded. My heart was flooded with an immense wave of light, a golden bright light that I can simply not describe. But I’ll try my best to do it nonetheless.

“I instantly felt that now, the Tsunami of Love hit my heart and firstly, I was so concerned about this strong feeling in my heart, that I thought I am having a heart attack. …

“The Tsunami of Love hit me so hard that in the same second, all my concerns, anger, distress, hate and all other unpleasant feelings, which bothered me for such a very long time, were washed away completely.

“All these feelings were replaced by pure Love and for the first time ever in my 45 years, I experienced Love in its purest form. The Tsunami of Love was a complete cleaning of my ‘system.’ A resetting of my being. After an hour or so, The Tsunami of Love leveled out, leaving me in total peace and Love.”  (2)

First time ever – yes! Love in its purest form – yes!  Complete cleansing of my system – yes!

A resetting of my being – oh, yes! THIS is a heart opening. If you haven’t had one, for heavens sake, ask for it.

Pardon me while I wax Biblical but this is the treasure buried in the field, the pearl of great price. Knock and the door shall be opened. Ask and ye shall receive.

Surely you can see from Bright Star’s account and my own enthusiastic bubbling that this is the X on the treasure map I spoke of at Christmastime. This inner tsunami of love that comes with a heart opening is what we’re all seeking. The doorway to Ascension is the heart.

A temporary heart opening has been promised to all of us. It’s the next stage on the road to Ascension, which will be a full and permanent heart opening.

But notice that Bright Star thought he was having a heart attack. Do not be fooled if you feel like exploding or imploding. Simply allow the Mother to do her work.

Thank you so much for that description, Bright Star.  Yours is the first account I’ve read that’s been exactly the same as my own experience (and more). We both felt the opening of that door, the hridayam, the portal to the heart.

PS. And you went further. Who’s next?

***

There’s a false and an authentic purity. When I talk about purification, I’m not referring here to an exaggerated and puffed-up self-righteousness that passes for purity.

I’m referring to balance – a state of being that’s mirrored in the thought, feeling, and behavior of the individual, the one unattached to anything else than love, balance, and the other divine qualities.

It’s needful to give attention to the arts of purification – many of which Kathleen is discussing – at this time of chaos and mayhem, arrests and disclosures.

It’ll be needful again after First Contact, Abundance, governmental reorganization. After any major change, the need will reassert itself to go deeper and deeper into our personal cleansing or purification.

And this can be stressful. I ask us to forego criticism of each other, such as in spamming comments or the sharing of private correspondence, etc. Let’s go easy on each other during this time of mayhem. None of us has been this way before in this lifetime.

***

Not to leave the question hanging –  what is purity?

Purity, for me, means oneness of essence – pure gold is an example. We’re all One in essence.

Like a divine fiber-optic, we’re billions of Lights emanating from the One Source. That’s exactly our situation.

Our form extends outwards from the central source like the plastic form of the fiber-optic. But inside we carry Light/Love that comes directly from the Source. All of us carry the same Light. And we carry it in our hearts, beyond the hridayam or heart aperture.

When the overburden is removed and we stand forth as much more of that Light (it goes on and on), we can be said to have purified ourselves – of our vasanas, the overburden, our baggage, our old business.

The time at which that overburden is completely and forever removed is Ascension or Sahaja Samadhi. That’s where we’re headed. That’s down the road in gradual stages plus peak moments such as I expect here.

Notice what else Bright Star says: “After an hour or so, the Tsunami of Love leveled out, leaving me in total peace and Love.” And the inner tsunami will level out more and more, because it’s just a foretaste of what is to come in Ascension.

You saw it level out for me. You heard me asking AAM why, if I’d had a permanent heart opening, it didn’t last. It did but mostly closed. Certainly not a torrent at this time.

So my advice is to just let it go when it wishes to depart. It’ll be back. And even the remembrance of it is sweet.

***

Ascension will be a permanent heart opening, which in turn is a return to ourselves as we naturally are (Sahaja = natural).

We must be as children to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. (3) Innocent, natural. Sahaja

Won’t we laugh when we see that all of this hoopla is simply about us returning to our natural state? Ending up at the place we began? That is grounds for laughter.

Emerging from our obfuscations, the Buddha calls it. Polishing the statue, Plotinus described it as, in one of the best metaphorical statements of it I’ve ever read. (4) This is one of the main activities on this site: Personal cleansing of vasanas.

We’ve built up momentum for purification over the last five or six years. I hope that momentum continues in 2018 and bears fruit.

Thank you to everyone who’s donated to the continuance of this site and InLight Radio. Without your support, we would not be here.

Happy New Year, everyone!

“Let him who can, arise, withdraw into himself, forego all that is known by the eyes, turn aside forever from the bodily beauty that was once his joy. He must not hanker after the graceful shapes that appear in bodies, but know them for copies, for traceries, for shadows, and hasten away towards that which they bespeak. …

“Withdraw into yourself and look. … Do as does the sculptor of a statue that is to be beautified: he cuts away here, he smooths it there, he makes this line lighter, this other one purer, until he disengages beautiful lineaments in the marble. Do you this, too. Cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one radiance of beauty. Never cease “working at the statue” until there shines out upon you from it the divine sheen of virtue….

“Have you become like this? Do you see yourself, abiding within yourself, in pure solitude? Does nothing now remain to shatter that interior unity, nor anything cling to your authentic self? [You are balanced.] Are you entirely that sole true light which is not contained by space, not confined to any circumscribed form, not diffused as something without term, but ever immeasurable as something greater than all measure and something more than all quantity? Do you see yourself in this state? Then you have become vision itself.

“Be of good heart. Remaining here, you have ascended aloft. You need a guide no longer. Strain and see.” (Plotinus in Elmer O’Brien, ed., The Essential Plotinus. Representative Treatises from the Enneads. Toronto: New American Library, 1964, 40-3.)

Bright Star: An Account of a Heart Opening – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Bright Star: An Account of a Heart Opening

At the same time that I was watching Linda Dillon’s Winter Solstice 2017 webinar, I was also receiving emails from a friend in Europe who was at that moment having a heart opening.

He wishes anonymity and so I’ll call him “Bright Star.”  As with my own experience in 2015, he felt the energy rising up his body and then opening the hridayam or heart aperture. 

Then the inner tsunami of love flowed. He says at the end what I felt myself moved to say as well: The only thing I wanted was more of the same (higher-dimensional love)

His experience went much farther than mine. The kundalini mounted the whole of his body and all his chakras opened. I’m no expert, but my hunch is that the experience was Brahmajnana, God-Realization. Wonderful work, Bright Star!

Notice this statement: “The Tsunami of Love hit me so hard that in the same second, all my concerns, anger, distress, hate and all other unpleasant feelings, which bothered me for such a very long time, were washed away completely.”

Yes, swept away in the inner tsunami of love. The tsunami washes away all our concerns; that’s part of the reason why the world will work after we all have a heart opening: No one will want to harm anyone else.

Thank you, Bright Star, for sharing your experience with us. Who’s next please?

My Early Christmas Gift of Dec 21, 2017

The Rising Stage

When I woke up on Dec 21, 2017, I instantly felt that something is different. I could not put my feelings into words but all of my senses were very sharp. I noticed every sound, the different colours (which were brighter than normally) and I my mind was very calm: No disturbing thoughts like usually. At this moment, I didn’t know what to do with all of this and I went off for work.

The Tsunami of Love Breaks

I was in my office, sitting at my computer, when I felt the energy rising: Firstly, I felt a prickling in my legs, which went up over my back along the spine up to my forehead. It was very pleasant and I relaxed. Suddenly, my root chakra opened up and the energy flowed from there to every chakra in my body, connecting all of them and let them pulsate.

My whole body was filled with a bright golden light that emanated like flames from every part of my body. The energy went up into my crown chakra and there was a strong connection between my third eye and the back of my head.

I felt every atom of my body, was connected with everything that is, was melting with the Universe. I was part of All That Is. At this moment, I felt a bit dizzy but the feeling was so very comfortable that I just let the process flow and did not have any concerns. Until the next thing happened…

Suddenly, my heart opened up and by this, I mean it was like my heart explodes. My heart was flooded with an immense wave of light, a golden bright light that I can simply not describe. But I’ll try my best to do it nonetheless.

I instantly felt that now, the Tsunami of Love hits my heart and firstly, I was so concerned about this strong feeling in my heart, that I thought I am having a heart attack.

Luckily, I had my “online coach” (Steve) who was helping me during this experience and gave me the valuable hint, just to relax and let the process happen because this was an enlightenment experience and not a heart attack (thank you again, Steve!).

The Tsunami of Love hit me so hard that in the same second, all my concerns, anger, distress, hate and all other unpleasant feelings, which bothered me for such a very long time, were washed away completely.

All these feelings were replaced by pure Love and for the first time ever in my 45 years, I experienced Love in its purest form. The Tsunami of Love was a complete cleaning of my “system.” A resetting of my being. After an hour or so, The Tsunami of Love levelled out, leaving me in total peace and Love.

The Aftermath

For the very first time in my life I can honestly declare: I am happy, joyous and full of love of life. I am so grateful to be a part of Mother’s plan and willing to go along with the Train of Ascension. My old self is gone. I am present in the Now Moment and when my thoughts deviate, I notice this very early and can easily access the Now Moment again. I am happy. I am.

Please, Spirit, this is the best gift you could of gave me and it’s like a drug: Please give me more of it!

One Family and One Path – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Gratitude to artist

******

One Family and One Path

 

For decades, I’ve felt at a deep level that something was missing.

Zorra in a recent Hollow Earth call advised us to “become prepared for reunion, reunion meaning between you, … Terra Christa, and all of your beloved Galactic family, whoever that may be.” (1)

And something deep inside me, way below my everyday mind, responded “Yes!” Hearing that sentence was like hearing a Tibetan gong.

It’s the lack of that feeling of being connected throughout the universe. Nowadays we’ve been calling it “galactic” though the sense of connectedness goes well beyond our Milky Way Galaxy. A sense of the widest possible connectedness is what I miss.

A sense of freedom goes with feeling that connected.

It took being named for me to become aware of what that vague sense of lack is and has been.

I think that regaining that experience of feeling universally connected will come for all of us after Disclosure – perhaps in stages, perhaps all at once.

I know what it’s like to suddenly awaken to a wider context, entering which leaves one like a babe in the woods. I’ve had that experience numerous times – we call it “realization.”

What Zorra was talking about – First Contact with our star family – will certainly prove to be a wider context – and a bigger problem.

We used to joke in the est Network that we needed a bigger problem.

The joke ran: Since humans tend to turn every solution into a problem three days later anyways, we might as well create for ourselves a really big, challenging, and  promising problem – like the end of world hunger.

If we’re frustrated with life, see if we’ve taken on a big enough problem. If not, get a bigger one.

The world that’ll be called into being with the Disclosure of the presence of our star brothers and sisters will present us all with delightfully-bigger problems.

It’ll  ennoble our process of thought formation, invite us to level up our thoughts and conduct, get moving, and upgrade our lives in all respects.

We may as well consider ourselves children in that world we’ll enter after First Contact, because we’ll be learning from that moment onwards.

With the end of human-rights abuse on our planet, the arrival of abundance, the heart opening promised for the planet, and First Contact, we’ll probably all join in celebrating the arrival of the new Golden Age – for everyone who wants to lay down their arms and join us. The train is soon leaving the station. All aboard who are coming aboard.

How all this is falling out sounds to me like the way Archangel Michael’s 2013 prediction would manifest:

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. (2)

It doesn’t take a quantum physicist to see the direction in which all this is headed – cooperative councils, congresses, parliaments, federations, alliances, expanding circles of spiritual connectedness and group consciousness, serving the Light, “until it is one family and one path.”

I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off after Christmas. Starting soon….

Summoning Bliss and Love – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Buddha Bliss by Amanda Sage

******

Summoning Bliss and Love

I just caught myself in the middle of an everyday action that supplied a vital missing piece for me.

Only half of what happened is connected to the information I learned (intellectual knowledge). Half is connected to the fact that it was realized (realized knowledge). For me, realized knowledge has more vigor and strength than intellectual knowledge.

I had a thought (I forget what it was) and it raised the feeling of bliss in me.

Well, but that’s the problem. That statement (it raised the feeling of bliss in me) is not true. That’s the way we speak about things and it obscures the truth.

What’s true is that I watched myself raise the feeling of bliss in me.  The way I phrased it before leaves out the fact that I will bliss to come up in me. Because the action of the will happens so very subtly, we … I … tend to overlook it. But it’s essential to realize that we call up our own bliss.

I began experimenting and confirmed that I am the one who raises the feeling in me. I summon it and it comes.

This may represent an upgrade in our abilities to have command over things like this. Or it may be something that was always there that I didn’t see. I don’t know.

But the fact that I summon up my own bliss is a revolutionary discovery for me.

I didn’t need to repeat the experiment with love because I already know I summon up love from my heart. That was the original exercise that contributed to my heart opening, March 13, 2015.

What followed from the first realization was a second: If I am not experiencing love and bliss, then chances are I’m not calling them up from my heart. I’m dropping out on that vital piece of the puzzle.  If I don’t experience love and bliss, that’s why.

What I’m saying here fits with what the Company of Heaven has been telling us, that we don’t realize who we are and what our capabilities are. This experience was one of realizing a capability I either didn’t know I had or else newly discovered.

Whichever is the case, I’ll take responsibility for running the process.

I’ll begin calling love and bliss up from my heart … or wherever else they may come from … and into my field of experience.

I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off after Christmas.

Treasure Map a Gift at Christmastime – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Treasure Map a Gift at Christmastime

Merry Christmas!

Imagine that Mom and Dad have given you a present this Christmas. Let’s unwrap it!

Look! It’s a treasure map, with an explanatory note.

The treasure map shows an island vaguely the shape of a human being. There’s an X at the top of the map with “You are here” written beside it.

An arrow points in the direction of another X in the middle of the map, where a heart has been inscribed, with “The treasure is here.”  A dashed line connects the two.

What can it mean?

What does the explanation say? Let’s read it.


Child of our heart,

The X at the top of this map indicates the place where your awareness is now, vaguely at the top of the head.

The X in the middle of the map points to an aperture, or portal as you call them these days, two digits to the right of the breastbone. We’re asking you to take your attention from where it is now and place it on the heart.

Hindus call the heart aperture or portal the hridayam.  As long as it’s closed, we say the heart is closed (not emotionally, but at a much deeper level). Once the hridayam is open, a torrent of higher-dimensional love flows.

And a heart opening is destined in your future.

All of us wish for your heart to open. Call it the treasure, pearl, or mustard seed. Call it the Self, Christ, or Atman, the very thing you’ve always been looking for is found in the space of the opened heart.

The heart door to the higher dimensions is always already available to you, regardless of race, religion, or beliefs.

Open that door and all your worries are instantly swept away. Higher-dimensional love will flow in a torrent and transform everything within you. You’ll be submerged in love, ego-dead, Self-alive.

In that tsunami, you’ll feel as if you’re drowning, for sure … and find what you’ve been looking for.

Welcome to the Fifth Dimension, child, whether to stay or just for a visit.

Now we leave you with this further note of explanation

Mom and Dad


Explanation

The hridayam is the heart aperture or portal that remains closed, just as a camera lens is closed.

When the heart aperture opens, we’re said to have had a heart opening. The inner tsunami of love that flows swiftly through that space is wonderful! Beyond imagining.

Blessed with that inner tsunami, that torrent which floods the fields and makes the dikes (boundaries, borders) unnecessary, you’ll need for nothing else.  And only want for more of it.

Do not confuse the heart with the heart chakra. It’s the heart you want to enter.

We’re not talking here about being “open-hearted,” as in the quality of “open-heartedness.” Many, many people are open-hearted, but very few have had a heart opening. They aren’t the same.

Many enlightened sages have a temporary heart opening after which the hridayam closes again. This always occurs until the last stage of Third-Dimensional enlightenment (Sahaja Samadhi) is reached.

That same permanent heart opening our Hindu children called moksha, mukti, liberation from life and death, or liberation from what you now know as the Third Dimension of physicality. (1) It’s what the Buddha called buddhahood (not arahantship).

To folks who remain in the Third Dimension, you “become” ascended masters.


Thank you, Mother! Thank you, Father!

I can add a word as well.

Archangel Michael told me that three things tipped the scale for my heart to open on March 13, 2015. It more or less closed again the next January.

The first was my passionate love for Kathleen, which apparently approached the level of transformative love; the second was that I cried out to have Mom and Dad open my heart; and the third was an exercise I’d like to describe to you.

That exercise is to draw up love from our heart on the in-breath and on the out-breath send it out to the world. This exercise, Michael said, primed the pump.

Once the hridayam opened, I was immersed in a torrent of love, which instantly swept everything impure and negative from me and left me in ecstacy. My friend overseas who had a heart opening during Linda’s Solstice Webinar was swept away by the alteration in his feelings.

Before that event, I’d never have guessed what true love, sacred love, higher-dimensional love was. It was … well, clearly, from another dimension.

I assert that everything good can be found in the space of the open hridayam – of the open heart. Oh, happy day that it should happen to you – and it will – and that yours should permanently remain open in Ascension.

Sahaja Samadhi is usually the highest level of enlightenment that sages can be found to freely talk about. Probably because dimensionality wasn’t part of the conversation back then. It wasn’t until recently

Life is Ultimately a Win-Win – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art: DNA Eternal Man by Marie Schwarzer @ Fine Art America

******

Life is Ultimately a Win-Win

Life is ultimately a win-win. (1)

What does that mean?

Let me back up for a second.

The task each of us was given on our “birth” or “creation,” the mission for each of us, embedded in our spiritual DNA, so to speak, is to know ourselves. (2)

In the course of finding out who we are, we travel from God to God: Out from God into the realm of matter, mater, Mother and back to God again.

Jesus said, lo, I came from the Father out into the world and now I leave the world and go back to the Father.  He just described the spiritual parabola or circuit we all follow.

And when finally we know ourselves, we realize that we ourselves are God. God is everything, including us.

In that moment of realization or enlightenment, God meets God.

God is seen. The One without a second experiences Itself. For God this is a moment of great pleasure.

For us it’s a moment of paradise.  We both emerge from our reunion fully satisfied.

For God, simply watching each soul traverse the circuit from God to God is a source of pleasure as well. Apparently God enjoys Its creation through us.

Hindus call the whole affair a leela or divine play. It is maya or the play of illusion. A holographic world, devised by God for Its own enjoyment.

Both God and I want the same thing: Reunion. For both of us, it’s the agreed-upon goal.

We as lightworkers and as a world are headed for a consciousness shift or vibratory ascension to a more-refined dimensional frequency. In wanting this, both God and we want the same thing. We’re aligned.

When we lightworkers realize we’re God – or consciousness, or love, etc. – God will meet God in that moment of our enlightenment. We will join in joy.

It all works out in the final reel. Life is ultimately a win-win.

I will be on two weeks’ holiday after Christmas.

The Incredible Shrinking Man – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

The Incredible Shrinking Man

In the course of researching, I came across one quote from Aisha North and another from the Arcturian Group that touched on three things that were happening with me: (1) the feeling of my personality shrinking, (2) the disappearance of my fear of dissociation, and (3) the quieting of my physical senses.

I sometimes feel like the Incredible Shrinking Man in that my personality seems to be  shrinking more each day.

Aisha North captured that feeling when she said:

“Even if you have all come to a point where you are so much more than what you were only a short time ago, you will also come to a point where you will feel so much less than ever before.

“Because you will at one time or another find yourself as if dissolving into nothingness, like there is no more substance to you.” (1)

I do in fact feel “so much less than ever before.” Not like that is necessarily a bad thing.

And the way it appears to be going is exactly that: “as if dissolving into nothingness.” No residue, no trace of my personality seems destined to remain.

The second part paralleled my own discovery around dissociation, which also ties into “dissolving into nothingness.”:

“We can guarantee you all that you will never feel yourself more substantial as when you find yourself scattered into a billion little pieces, seemingly tossed up into the air, for the wind to blow about like nothing more than scraps of paper in a storm. For then, you will truly feel the real power of who you really are. …

“For as you find yourself falling apart, disintegrating into seeming nothingness, you will also find yourself stepping into the real you, the limitless you, the one that has no borders, and therefore, the one that has no end. No end to what you can achieve, no end to what you can be, no end to what you already are, and as such, this falling apart will quite simply be the coming together of the realization of your own true self, the self that is not inhibited by any concept of time or space or indeed matter.

“For then, you will simply know that you ARE, and no matter what you do or what you choose not to do in the upcoming period, it will have no impact on this, the very core of you. For it is indeed eternal, and it is indeed omnipresent, and it will always be thus.” (2)

During every spiritual experience, the sensation has been that the constructed self or personality has “[disintegrated] into nothingness” and that “I” am released.

Every spiritual experience has been one of radical dissociation of all that’s ephemeral and a radical unveiling of that which is eternal. Scarey while it’s happening but, in the end, nothing to fear, there and much to feel blissful over.

I’ve had minor and inconclusive experiences of “the real you, the limitless you, the one that has no borders,” but nothing major and conclusive. But that too will come in good time.

The second quote was from the Arcturian Group through Marilyn Raffaele and it touched on another process that I was feeling.

My interest in food and drink continues to go down. The other day I went out looking for a restaurant and walked the entire length of a major downtown street without finding anything that interested me. I turned around, went home, and had a modest, home-cooked meal.  I feel less and less engaged by my physical senses.

Here’s the Arcturian Group explaining that very thing:

“This year, many are finding that holiday lights do not seem to be as bright, festivities not as attractive, shopping more of a burden, and that holiday celebrations no longer hold the same sense of excitement and enjoyment that they used to.

“This is because your evolving energetic frequency has shifted you out of alignment with much that up to now you enjoyed. Foods, entertainments, friends, etc. as well as many traditions no longer hold the same value they once held, which can make things difficult when you are in situations surrounded by people still in alignment with these things. Because you have evolved, attempts to revive the past and ‘get on board,’ as before, simply will not work.

“This does not mean you will never again enjoy these things but rather means, you will begin to see and experience them in new ways and with a deeper understanding of what they represent rather than from a level that is in alignment with the emotionally based commercial hype being broadcast to you 24/7. Excitement and celebrations will no longer be as intense as they were in the past simply because you are now experiencing them from a different level of awareness.” (3)

That fits for me. It’d be very difficult to get me too worked up about many things these days, I’m afraid.  At the same time, my interest in such things as love goes way up.

All of this points to our pulling back in general from the world of the senses, passions, and extremes to a comfortable residence in the middle, the center, the heart.

It also, I think, points to our continuing, gradual transition from a carbon- and sense-based body to a crystalline and supersensory one.

I find that seeing my own situation reflected in the messages from our sources is very comforting. I go from feeling distraught and concerned to feeling reassured and comfortable each time I see a passage that explains what’s happening to me.

I’ll be taking a couple of weeks off around Christmastime.

What’s Been Missing? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art: Emily Balivet

******

What’s Been Missing?

Enlightened sages in past years did not understand or explain higher dimensionality, I recall Archangel Michael saying.

Their descriptions of enlightenment were more restricted than the conversations the Company of Heaven have had with us recently. (1)

Where they approached the subject of “purification,” it was predominantly to counsel abstinence from sensual pleasures.

With the exception of Plotinus, Ramana Maharshi and a very few others, they didn’t really seem to get into how to lift the primary impediment to Self-Knowledge – what the Council of Love calls “core issues” and what Ramana Maharshi called “vasanas.”

Removing the overburden of our core issues or vasanas – and their effects, chiefly, our conditioning – is all that needs to be done to unconceal the innocent, natural, and original Self.

Plotinus called purification polishing or “working at” the statue:

“Do as does the sculptor of a statue that is to be beautified: he cuts away here, he smooths it there, he makes this line lighter, this other one purer, until he disengages beautiful lineaments in the marble. You do this, too.

“Cut away all that is excessive, straighten all that is crooked, bring light to all that is overcast, labor to make all one radiance of beauty. Never cease ‘working at the statue’ until there shines out upon you from it the divine sheen of virtue….

“Have you become like this? Do you see yourself, abiding within yourself, in pure solitude? Does nothing now remain to shatter that interior unity, nor anything cling to your authentic self? Are you entirely that sole true light which is not contained by space, not confined to any circumscribed form, not diffused as something without term, but ever immeasurable as something greater than all measure and something more than all quantity? Do you see yourself in this state? Then you have become vision itself.

“Be of good heart. Remaining here, you have ascended aloft. You need a guide no longer. Strain and see.” (2)

This passage is the clearest reference to the removal of vasanas that I’ve seen.

These days I’ve seen the discussion of vasanas go on under many different names, using many different approaches to cleansing ourselves of them. It’s clear that the Company of Heaven has been inspiring the knowledge in many. (3)

It’s as if our level of comprehension has gone beyond a simple introduction to the motor vehicle to instructions on how to drive it.

But we need to actually take one of those methods of clearing away vasanas and actually dig into our core issues.

I meet so many people who’ve read articles on purification or cleansing, but who have not and do not use the upset clearing process to eradicate their vasanas.

It’s like what meditation master S.N. Goenka once said. It does no good to put the medicine bottle on the mantle and worship it, saying, “O medicine bottle, take away the causes of my illness.” We need to take the medicine.

We need to  start cleansing ourselves – if we haven’t already begun – if we want to emerge from our darker moods and attitudes.

***

Any clearing process makes the basic distinction between being triggered and projecting our anger onto the person we face and what Kathleen and Byron Katie have called “turnaround” – turning our attention around from the other we face to ourselves, to discover where this pattern originated.

They also are agreed on the next step being what Kathleen calls “feel to heal” or what I call “experiencing the original trauma through to completion.”  (4)

All feelings pass, but what causes some unpleasant ones to stick around longer than necessary is that we resist them. As Werner Erhard observed decades ago, what we resist persists. And so we dance with these rejected feelings seemingly forever.

When we agree to actually feel to completion the emotions we refused to experience after the original trauma, we begin the process of cleansing ourselves of them. It may take repeated washings with the detergent of our awareness but at last they will lift.

Their lifting is like us taking a rain coat off ourselves. Underneath we’re perfectly dry.

Similarly, underneath the mantle of our vasanas, we’re perfectly loving.

(1) Michael said:

“There was not earlier, in the time of these sages, who are very sacred individuals, the same framework of understanding of inter-dimensionality or multidimensionality. It was more the sense that there was the Self and then there was the universe and the bridge of enlightenment.

“So it was not viewed as a complete unified field through which human beings and all realities had access. It was considered a somewhat arduous undertaking and it was not termed ‘shifting dimensions’ because the science, the culture, the framework within which one operated, even in the higher states, shall we say, was not open and available. …

“Now the sages [also] did not think of this, of their journey as a process of entrainment of bringing the entire collective along. You do. And when I say ‘you’ I mean the current thinking and body of understanding and knowing in the lightworker community. So the fundamental premises have changed.” (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow, through Linda Dillon, Feb. 17, 2017.)

Portable Spiritual Practice – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Crown Chakra Mandala by Heaven on Earth Silks

Portable Spiritual Practice

I’ve always wanted my spiritual sadhana or practice to be portable. So that I can practice wherever I find myself.

So I don’t want to carry a load of books around with me or a directory tree full of information in my laptop or in my brain. I want the whole matter to be simple and manageable.

So I asked myself, of all that you’ve read, what three statements can you arrive at that would provide the essence of spiritual effectiveness for me?

Remembering three key statements would be undoubtedly portable.

What would be the three most useful statements to keep me moving towards my goal?

I may have told you these before. I hope not. They are:

(1) What is most important to do right now?

(2) What do you hunger for?

(3) Choose one and go deeper.

The first two statements wake me up. When I answer them, I get to compare what they point to with what I’m doing. I get to see whether I’m walking around dead or  alive, conscious or unconscious, self-nurturing or self-defeating.

The first one is a practical question. In the service of the Mother, what’s the most important thing for me to do right now? In my sacred partnership? In my friendships? Etc.

The second one is an intensely spiritual one.   What do I hunger for? What must I have, be, or do?

The third statement reminds me to channel my efforts by choosing one and then going deeper than I’m going right now. (For some people, it’ll be higher, rather than deeper.)

If I didn’t feel a need to go deeper, the idea to use these three statements would not arise in my mind. Or would arise and be dismissed.

If I was in a state of transformative or higher-dimensional love at this moment – and I’m not – I’d only be hungering for more love, nothing else. It seems that love is all we ever hunger for.

I know there is a place where total satisfaction is our continuous state of being. I’ve dropped in and then reluctantly had to leave. Feeling that kind of love brings with it total satisfaction – a total lack of wanting – for anything else but more of itself.

After the planetary heart opening, folks will read that last sentence and say, “Well, that’s bloody obvious. Of course. What’s the big deal? Why is he writing about it?”

But now it sounds like mystical mumbo-jumbo. It’s so hard to understand from outside the space and perfectly obvious from inside.

I have a foot in both worlds. I’m wafted away at the remembrance of that state of being and yet my consciousness is firmly anchored in this everyday state. In which do I belong? From which do I come? I can’t give up the one and I won’t give up the other.

It’s a dilemma that only transformative love will resolve.

That’s what I hunger for. That’s what I choose and I will go deeper with it. Right now.

This spiritual practice is portable. Its goal is a permanent heart opening and the free flowing of an inner tsunami of love.

Archangel Michael on How Men Can Assist in the Resurgence of the Divine Feminine – Steve Beckow

******

Archangel Michael on How Men Can Assist in the Resurgence of the Divine Feminine

I have four excerpts from my Nov. 15, 2017 reading which I’d like to combine in today’s post.

They’re on how men can assist the resurgence of the Divine Feminine, the planetary heart opening, the Reval and the Chinese Elders, and what protection means.


From Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 17, 2017.)


On How Men can Assist in the Resurgence of the Divine Feminine

Steve Beckow: Can you talk to me personally, but also to readers generally about how men can best serve women in this time of the resurgence of the Divine Feminine.

Archangel Michael: The most important step is to keep your sense of humor and I say that literally and to step back to allow yourself to be the participant observer.

Think of it. Not that we are suggesting that we want you in any way shape or form to adopt a parental role. That is over. But think of it in this way. When you have had a child, you let them stretch their wings knowing sometimes they were going to make mistakes. They were going to do things that you totally did not understand and they were going to do things that made your heart sing.

So allow that to happen. There needs to be a massive amount in all undertakings, male and female, of latitude. And the male paradigm has been to correct and control. You need to throw that out.

Then the most important thing you can do is to start beginning, and continuing because you are well underway, (and most of whom I talk to in this instance are well underway but it is still a good practice) embrace your own Divine Feminine self. Nurture your own power of creation. You are carrying the baby of Nova Earth in your belly as much as the females.

Then, spend time addressing what we can call your old male paradigm, in bringing forth the balanced male paradigm so that you not only spiritually or esoterically, but as a human man, are someone that women can trust, engage with, truly talk to, work with and create with.

That is it.

Massive Planetary Heart Opening

Steve Beckow: Now, the Mother announced in the summer that we would be having a massive heart opening on the planet. How is that coming? Is that a gradual process or a sudden process?

Archangel Michael: It is both and you have been in a gradual process since she has actually talked about this. And then it will be like a turning of a switch.

Steve: Is that going to happen this year?

AAM: Yes, it is projected for this year. So, yes, she is very clear, and when we say that you know what we mean. It is part of her Plan that it occur momentarily. …

Steve: Wow, we are going to have a busy Christmas season!

AAM: That is the Plan.

The Reval and the Chinese Elders

Steve Beckow: Is the decision to initiate the Reval dependent simply on the Chinese elders, on nothing else and when they want to push that button?

Archangel Michael: Understand that we continue and you continue to be working with what we would call the greed/control/abuse factor of the humans. So what happens and what cannot happen (not that this is an impediment to, as you put it, pushing the button) but this is a grave concern from our perspective.

There is a tendency of many, let us put it that way, “I’ve got the money. I am safe. I can do what I want and to hell with the rest” and of course that is not the nature of this lesson. Now, for some it is absolutely going to be that way and we do not interfere with that free will choice and decision so that will contribute somewhat to the chaos. But in terms of the practicalities, everything lined up and waiting, and be very clear, this is not dependent upon political dominoes or pieces at this point in time.

So are you simply waiting for the Chinese elders in their wisdom and their long view to say, “Yes, it is now?” That is correct and that is all that remains to be done.

Steve: So now, we won’t reach a point next year where were still waiting, is that correct?

AAM: That is correct.

Protection Means No Need to Fear

Archangel Michael: This is something that many human beings do not understand and that you will share and write about over time and in the near time. When we declare that, whether it is a guardian angel or a guide (because they are interchangeable), an Archangel, a Seraphim, the Mother herself but particularly when I say, when we say or a guardian angel says that they are protecting you, what does this really mean?

It means that there is no need for fear, that this very old core issue/false grid can truly be thrown into the trash heap or the recycle bin to be given back to the light. Few people really believe this and it is curious because there is seldom a situation in which we do not begin and end by saying this.

So it is a basic wobbly leg in human/divine relationships because the relationship is starting with this aspect, based on old human experience, but it is based on this aspect of “I don’t really trust you so you better prove yourself and show me” rather than proceeding not only in the love but in the mantle of protection that is around you always.

So I am giving you this as food for thought, not so much even for your sacred self but as food for thought for how you discuss things with those who are our faithful readers.

And the desire for many, and when I say many I mean billions, of Gaians to simply release this hesitancy to trust because it is also, of course, as you well know a hesitancy to trust oneself, to trust that in fact what you feel about yourself is trustworthy.

Archangel Michael: What Happened to Civilization in 1200 BC? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Artist appreciation

******

Archangel Michael: What Happened to Civilization in 1200 BC?

As an historian by training, I have an abiding interest in historical matters. One mystery has long intrigued me and I asked Archangel Michael about it in my last reading through Linda Dillon, Nov. 15, 2017.

Right around 1200 BC, many civilizations fell, were eroded, or suffered some other obstacle to their progress.

Various theories have been advanced – natural disaster, invasion of the “sea people,” etc.

But what actually happened? Archangel Michael says it had to do with the withdrawal of our star family from active participation in our societies.  They felt it was time for us to manage our own affairs.

We promptly turned on each other and started a series of never-ending wars of conquest that lasts to this day.


From a personal reading with Archangel Michael and Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Nov. 15, 2017. Thanks to Dana for our transcript.


Steve Beckow: There is a mystery that I’m hoping you can help me solve and that’s that something happened in 1200 BC to numerous civilizations and they experienced at least a hiccup in the case of Egypt but also fell in the case of the Hittites and some of their neighbors. What happened in 1200 BC, Lord?

Archangel Michael: There was a great deal that happened in that area that you would term 1200 BC. First of all, during that time many [galactics] returned home (1) and we do not just mean to the Sacred One (2) but also many returned to the ships (3) and there was a cleavage, a breaking of much of the partnership and co-creative partnerships between your star brothers and many civilizations.

There was also a similar time, a rise of what you can think of as darkness, what we would term as a resurgence. Yes, you tend to think of these fear factors as recent. They are not. They are ancient and they are original.


How did we humans do in the absence of our star brothers and sisters?


There was a strong component and a re-anchoring of many of the false grids and the paradigms of control and abuse. Freedom was severely suppressed.

In the suppression and control, what happens, if you are suppressing creation and creativity, you are suppressing the ability of being individually and collectively, to truly come forth in what is possible.

So you had a massive rise in the upswing of creativity, of what you can think of as one of those efforts to create Nova Earth in partnership with many of your star family and the divine.

And then you had the resurgence of the human paradigms of lack, limitation etc. You know the list.

And then [you had] the placing in positions of authority and control, not creativity, [but] control-authority-abuse those who really engaged in those paradigms. That’s what happened.

So what you see is civilizations fade away – civilizations that have been in flourishing mode, in blossoming mode.

And then you have seen the rise of those who say, “No, no, no, this is getting out of control. We do not have the lid on that pressure cooker. We are not able to contain this.”

And so it is that duality – war – has gone on for very a long time. Now, do civilizations rise and fade? Note that I am saying rise and fade. In that fading, think of it as seasonal, there is the rise and the bringing forth of the new. So it is the ebb and flow as well.

But never was it intended, in this ebb and flow of seasons of tides, that people be squashed and that is what has happened in human history. It has not been in organic ebb and flow. It has been the rise, the squash, the rise, the squash.

Now what you are saying is that there is a fading of what you can think of as, not just as Western civilization, but a fading so that the new of the Earth community and Gaian community can come to the forefront.

Steve: Why did a large number of guiding forces from the ships suddenly leave in 1200?

AAM: They were no longer welcome and they no longer saw that their creativity and guidance, input and sense of community were welcome.

Steve: Twilight of the Gods

AAM: That is correct.

Steve: I’ll be darned. But there’s no written evidence of this, I’m sure, right?

AAM: No.

Steve: All right, but the decline wasn’t due to the “sea peoples”?

AAM: No.

Steve: And the heavy stones at Hattusa and in Egypt and in Babylonia, were they lifted in place by extraterrestrial strategies or devices?

AAM: All of this was done by your star brothers. That is part of what we had this channel do. (4) These are markers. These are basically ancient landing markers that are being revitalized with the Cities of Light.

Footnotes

(1) Transitioned; died.

(2) Going back for a rest to Mother/Father One, what Linda calls the Thirteenth Octave.

(3) So he is speaking of our star brothers and sisters, embodied on Earth. They were no longer wanted and so they withdrew.

(4) Linda went to Great Britain and re-activated a number of “markers” – the “henges” – in different places.

A Magnificent Symphony – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

******

A Magnificent Symphony

 

Happy Thanksgiving to our American readers. Good work to all lightworkers!

We give thanks to everyone participating in Ascension.

We lightworkers are like an orchestra.  We’re playing a symphony called “Ascension.”

Different lightworkers on different instruments are playing different parts of the music.

Meanwhile, the mood of all the players is rising up and down together. Their coordinated gestures, though different, are bringing it all to a crescendo.

That’s exactly what we’re doing. We lightworkers are creating the music and responding to the music we create. And all of what we do, under the conductor’s sure hand, (1) is moving us towards the crescendo.

I’d like to talk about two aspects of the music at this present moment.

What follows may be guesswork, meant to stimulate discussion, but it also works to bring this reality into being.


We create by thought in the higher realms. What we in everyday consciousness think, with string intent and sacred purpose, is, apparently, created on the higher realms.

Where we miss the boat is that we don’t often consciously draw the created reality down to us. That’s the missing piece, for me.

Through the use of the universal laws – attraction and repulsion and balance, above and below – we can actually draw that created reality to us. And should be practicing doing so, I imagine.


This is the model of reality unfolding that I’m using.

***

I see two phases of Ascension going ahead simultaneously at the moment. This is like the music going forward while the pitch is rising.

The pitch rising is our gradual and, from time to time, sudden Ascension. That rising aspect of the music is going on in the background untouched by the events I’m going to describe here.

The Mother’s Tsunami, Porlana C, the Violet Flame/I AM Presence, etc. are causing our moods to elevate and drawing our consciousnesses upwards.

We can allow that simply to unfold, if we wish, only opening to receive it. Or we can participate in studying an praising it and that will be our lightwork and the piece we play in the orchestra.

Then there are two other parts of the Ascension music which concern us.

One is the dismantling of the old and the other is the building of the new.

The dismantling of the old has been going on in the background for years. Evidence has been collected and so on.

I call it “Accountability,” probably after the usage of the Company of Heaven. You can call it the demise of the Illuminati, the fall of the cabal, the dismantling of the old power structure, the release of the children of Israel from out of bondage in Egypt. It matters not what you call it.

It’s the demolition, not of people (and this is important), but of certain disabling ideas, behavior, and their products that have been with us since our earliest history.

***

Back in 1973-4, working as a cultural historian at the National Museum of Man in Canada, I defined culture as an organization of ideas, manifest in act and artifact though consisting of neither, by which humans understand their environment and take purposeful action.

Culture consists of ideas, which humans then translate into behavior. They then translate behavior into artifacts – tools, instruments, books, paintings, etc.

It’s the culture we’re dismantling, not the bearers of that culture – the culture of violence, sexual predation, and oligarchy.  And certain lightworkers in the orchestra are playing that part of the music.

Let these be the percussion instruments – the drums, cymbals, bells, etc.  And the cabal is hearing the beat of their distant drums.

The second part of the orchestra can be compared to the stringed instruments.

This second part is building the new. In particular, it’s building Nova Earth. And certain lightworkers are playing this part of the music.

I have to tell you that I am firmly in the second section.

I used to play in the percussions. I sat for eight years as a refugee adjudicator, weeding out torturers and other human-rights abusers from the refugees.

After that I railed against the cabal through OpEdNews and later through this blog. I used to call it “banging on the anvil.” (2)

But that has disappeared for me. In the latest postings on Accountability, I’ve experienced little inner response. Working on it, I was dragging my feet and swimming up current.

But thinking about building Nova Earth? Oh, yah. When do we get started? Well, we start now because I just woke up, once again, to my sacred purpose.

My sacred purpose is to work on building Nova Earth. And I know it because it resonates with me. I hunger to get at it.

I’ve been in a real funk lately and I now see it’s because I was working on something that was not part of my sacred purpose – at least, not any more.

So I’m over here, in the strings, this symphony.

***

The music the dismantlers of the old are playing is an end to gender and other forms of inequality, an end to violence, an end to immorality, a return to decency. And that’s just the beginning. But it sets the tone.

Another part of the symphony is an end to poverty, world-wide, and to all its results – starvation, thirst, disease, homelessness, etc.

And other pieces just keep flowing as the symphony moves towards crescendo. (3)

If we could see things from a lofty perspective (and I don’t claim to be able to), I imagine it would resemble an intricate dance.

That dance in the past has led to cacophony and disaster. Whole continents fell into the sea. Nations disappeared from the face of the Earth, etc. (4)

But, as I understand it, this time we’re going to get it right and so we can settle back in our seats and simply listen to the celestial music. It’s going to be a magnificent symphony.

What is the Phase of Ascension Called Accountability? – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art: Luminous Angel – Magic The Gathering by Jason Chan

******

What is the Phase of Ascension Called Accountability?

Folks who want to sit out the phase of Ascension called “Accountability” are invited to do so. Read no further.

It may not be your mission. It is a part of mine.

We’re in the phase of Ascension which, prior to 2012, commentators would have called “Accountability.”

It occurs to me that some readers may not remember those times and may not be familiar with this phase or the way this blog – no longer the 2012 Scenario, but the Golden Age of Gaia – is handling it. (1)

Only later (2011) did I meet up with Archangel Michael.  He’s toned me down over the years. But I still feel the ardor flare, as Tanga has pointed out. (2)

“Accountability” refers to the phase of Ascension which is concerned with several things.

It’s concerned with putting an end to the elite’s (cabal’s, deep state’s) hold on the planet so that as many people as possible can ascend, including any “recalcitrants”  who’ve stopped undermining global society and world peace.

It’s concerned with putting an end to their intention to cause a World War III, in which most of Earth’s population would be destroyed.

It’s concerned with regime change where the deep state is in control of governments. You see Saudi Arabia and Zimbabwe happening as we speak.

It’s concerned with having the truth about everything be known.

What is that truth? In part it’s that Gaia is a living organism – an archangel inhabits that form. She’s ascending in consciousness and will no longer have a habitable Third-Dimensional form.  She’ll be like Venus, habitable on a higher dimension but not on this one. (3)

The truth is that Gaia has allowed humanity long enough to make war upon itself – and her. All wars must now end.

Those who remain recalcitrant will not be going with her to a higher-dimensional state of consciousness. They wouldn’t be able to survive in the refined vibrations if they did. They will “die” and be “re-assigned” to another planet.  (4)

Gaia nearly succumbed to the pollution of her body, most threateningly through depleted uranium, which almost caused her to abandon her form.

Who saved the planet? Our extraterrestrial relatives and friends. The ones who left in 1200 BC, at which point humanity descended into a dark age that hasn’t lifted since. (5) Well, now they’ve returned to help us get back on our feet again.

They’ve come from planets that birthed our civilizations, like the Pleiades, Sirius, Andromeda, and Arcturus, to name a few.

Their presence here has been hidden by the cabal, not by them.  Their arrival here has been known as the phase of Ascension called “Disclosure.”

But they are present in numbers, keeping a respectable distance from the planet and cloaked.

The cabal that rules now is not much different from the cabals that ruled ancient Assyria, Babylonia, or Egypt.

Or Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, and Stalinist Russia.

Our own deep state is undoubtedly now the number one foe of world peace and humanity’s evolution. But humanity’s direction is now unstoppable, as the Accountability phase will demonstrate.

I love what Winston Churchill said, that the efforts of the British people in their finest hour would bring them in time to “the sunlit uplands” of civilization. That’s humanity’s direction now.

In this Accountability phase, you can see that over 1100 sealed indictments have been issued and that some leading politicians like Hillary Clinton and John McCain are wearing orthopedic boots to disguise the GPS arrest bracelets they’re wearing.  The Podestas are under arrest.

These are part of the so-called “mass arrests” that we’ve been expecting since I first learned of Ascension in late 2008.

You can also see that remarkable regime change is happening.

Donald Trump. Vladmir Putin, and Xi Jinping seem to be cooperating on an international level in what Trump has called “draining the swamp.”

I’m not following events religiously so I may make a few mistakes. I’m more interested in the overarching or evolutionary aspects – how all this fits into our Ascension, where it ties in with the Reval. What it’s relationship to reconstruction is.

I know many readers are curious about the Reval. I don’t think this is a flashbang – an event intended to distract.

I think it must happen that those at a command level of the deep state – and, yes, that includes Hillary and Bill Clinton and all the Bushes – are removed from power.

Detain the leadership and the troops will have no orders to follow.

I think this is the housecleaning that must take place to make the world safe for reconstruction.

I’ll find some past articles on Accountability to repost if I can.

Watch for it:

  • Truth-telling
  • Arrests
  • Regime change

S: All right. So is there anything left in 3D?

AAM: No, it is all transmuted, transformed, elevated. …

S: So there is no 3D Earth after that date?

AAM: That is correct. … She does not want to duplicate herself and to continue to be the carrier of that energy.

S: Uh-hunh. Unlike, say, Venus?

AAM: Yes, there has been a division there [i.e., on Venus], but that is not how Earth is choosing to do this.

S: I’ll be darned. I haven’t heard that before, and I’m just trying to digest it.  There won’t be a 3D Earth. The people who say “no” will go to the astral planes, the people who say “yes” will continue on with Earth.

Sanat: You Cannot Live in Just One Area – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Art: by Angie Braun

Sanat: You Cannot Live in Just One Area

I’ve really come to love Sanat Kumara in the course of working on this book on the Universal Laws. (I’m getting my Law Degree.)

It’s because of passages like this short conference call from way back in 2004, where he really gets across his qualities of … well, humanness … open-heartedness, and humor.


“Balance of Give and Receive,” May 12, 2004, at http://counciloflove.com/2004/05/balance-of-give-and-receive/.


I am Sanat Kumara, old friend, Keeper of the Law on Earth and beyond. The law of the universe is balanced, and you cannot enter into partnership with your intergalactic friend or each other without this [balance].

Many of you have skirted the law during this life. You are prepared to give and give and give but turn away from receiving.

Now I ask you, what shall I do? Shall I arrest you? I think not.

I am here to remind you of the two sides of your being and how you cannot live in [just] one area. You cannot live in spirit and be in a physical body. You must do both.

You cannot live in only a part of yourself. You cannot love another without cherishing yourself.

What you create within will be what is. That is why you have worked with Gabrielle in this past year to relinquish your lack of worthiness that you may know that you are prepared to go forward.

My request of you lawbreakers is simple. I wish for you to eliminate this phrase, “but” from your very soul, your essence.

It was not our invention. It was yours. Relinquish it. I will remind you daily with my golden flame to let go of this limitation.

This sense of limitation is causing upheaval throughout the universe. Please do it not only for yourselves but for many.

Allow this creation to take place. There are no exceptions, such as the dispensation you believe you have [been] given. Now in the spirit of partnership, I ask you to receive.


Sanat’s tongue-in-cheek reading of the Law to us actually had a deep impact on me and I’ll describe that in Part 2, tomorrow.

The Universal Law of Attachment and Detachment as I See It – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Artist appreciation

******

The Universal Law of Attachment and Detachment as I See It

May I offer my interpretation of the Universal Law of Attachment and Detachment?

This is the opinion of a novice student, seeking to get his Law Degree, way down the road. This is my first “college essay.”

We’re born into this physical world to develop discrimination, discernment. The Buddha in his article on the Law of Attachment and Detachment (1) describes the fluidity that a person can develop by knowing (discerning) when to attach and when to detach. The process of creation requires both. It becomes a dance.

In a sense he’s describing what we could think of as our soul motion, our soul stirring, our soul working or operating. That is a much senior version to the one I’ll be giving you here.

***

In my version, our return Home, as the Mother calls it, will involve us finally surrendering all that marks us as individuals back to the Father, the Transcendent Void.

St. Paul described this moment when he said: “Then shall the Son [the Self] also himself be subject unto him, that God may be all in all.” (2)

The Self surrenders individuation and merges back into the One.

All of life was created for this moment of reunion, the end of the journey from God to God.

As long as we remember that, then where the Law of Attachment and Detachment comes in is that it teaches us what to detach from and what to attach to in order to reach the end of our journey Home.

As we learn to discriminate, we find that even “we” – our egos and constructed selves – are unreal. Our ultimate surrender will be to surrender all that’s unreal to the only thing that’s Real, God. We’re faced with thoughts of utter extinction. Primal fears arise.

Nonetheless, whatever we really are is what will be left over from that final surrender to the One.

We are the default, the residuum, according to the maxim: Whatever is impermanent, whatever is changing is not Real.

To discern what or who to surrender to, we need discrimination. For me, the Law of Attachment and Detachment describes the development of that discrimination.

***

Can I put the matter another way?

For a long time, I’ve held that the basic spiritual movement is to turn from the world to God.

If I was asked to elaborate, I’d say that the basic spiritual movement is, as I believe Hindus would put it, to discriminate between the Real and the unreal, to detach from the unreal, and to attach to the Real.

In other words, to turn from the world to God.

Physical life gives us the lessons we need to learn how to discriminate between the Real and the unreal, so that when the moment of ultimate surrender comes, we know what to surrender to. We know what is Real amidst all the unreal, what Zen calls the Ten Thousand Things.

I came alive in the early Seventies. for many years after, my inner life remained a jumble of vasana-born messages, conclusions, and decisions, an elaborate mask, and a range of games I’d be playing and scripts I’d be living. I’d appear to myself now as Byzantine. I’d be embarrassed.

Through a long life of experiences, my discrimination has advanced a wee bit. I’ve advanced the purpose of physical life – to develop discrimination – a step or two.

But more important than that, I’ve learned to attach to the Divine – you could also say, to the Love. It turns out to be the same in everyone and everything.

I bow before the Divine Love that you are. That I am as well. That it turns out we both are.

Namaste.

Inside the Mother’s Locker – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Inside the Mother’s Locker – Part 2/2

 

(Concluded from Part 1.)

It’s been exceptionally hard for me to move from the negative territory of complaining, fault-finding, and diminishing – chosen in childhood – to positive territory – what Winston Churchill called “the sunlit uplands.”

It’s been hard enough to see how pervasive that attitude was. It resided at such a subtle level that it was like water to the fish. Then to see the extent of the problem and generate the will to fix it.

Imagine tackling a population that has been traumatized by genocide (like Rwanda) or civil war (like the Congo).  We’ll have our work cut out for us even trying to reach some of the traumatized survivors.

For me who is not traumatized, I see gratitude as one way of crossing that divide from negative into positive territory. Blessing others is another way. Loving, caring, sharing are all ways.

The machinery operates through a deep, incipient programming that bent the twig when I was young and inclined the tree. As psychologists might say, early learnings were persistent.

I’m using reprogramming to overcome my persistent, mostly-negative, prior conditioning. I reprogram in the beginning by practicing being grateful, blessing, loving, caring, sharing every day. Later it won’t be necessary.

Sanat said that neither he nor Sananda nor Maitreya nor Jesus wanted to be our gurus. They want us to be our own gurus, our own pathfinders. I get that.

***

I think we think of the universal laws as confining, rigid, and compartmentalized. I don’t see them that way at all.

When one learns to drive a car, things can be mechanical: Make sure the car is in neutral, we think; put key in ignition, turn to right, put foot on gas pedal and pump.

But within a very short time that procedure becomes what we call “second nature.”

It was the same when we learned to ride a bike. And it’s the same with the laws. We start out learning them one by one, but, when we get the feel of them, they become second nature.

I’m just a novice. I’m not trying to puff myself. But I see where all of this may be leading.

(Interruption.)

I am staring at this moment at the Higher Self that I saw in a vision some months ago. Only I am inside the suit of armor that he was wearing. I am seeing the interior view.

(Passage of time.)

The universal laws are there to show me that I AM that Self. (2)

An integrated and flowing person – grateful, blessing, sharing, loving.

Thank you, Raj.  I validate the usefulness of an in-depth study of the Universal Law. May I have my Bachelor of Law degree please? You can send it to me here, inside the Mother’s locker.

(1). This experience was reassuring and calming but it was not a major event or enlightenment. The depth of an experience seems to depend on a combination of how deeply we can let the experience in and whether our guides think it in our best interests or those of our mission for us to have the more senior experiences  of enlightenment now.

Inside the Mother’s Locker – Part 1/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

African Portrait by Claudy Khan

Inside the Mother’s Locker – Part 1/2

 

There’s a scene in Men in Black where K opens a train-station locker and sees inside a whole tribe of small people who worship K as the Lightgiver, now returned.

They have a whole round of life centered around K-worship. They venerate a video coupon and a watch that he left behind on his last visit.

In a sense, that’s our relationship with our bodies, if we follow what Sanat Kumara says.

According to him, we have an orchestration of cells down to the subatomic level, each of which has the sacred purpose of serving us and assisting us to fulfill our mission.

He says it in in the course of explaining the Law of Sacred Purpose.

“We want to explain your Law of Purpose. Everything throughout the universe has purpose.

“And you can break it down and you can put it under a microscope but every atom, every subatomic particle, everything has purpose.

“And that is something to a great extent – not by you, my beloved lightworkers, but by the general population – that has been forgotten. So it is my job and yours to remind them. …

“Understand what I say, that the Law of Sacred Purpose is the same for the atoms that compose a table, a planet, the hair on your head or the lack thereof, your blood, your skin, your heart, your mind, and your entire being.

“So you are an integrated person, a human, that has many of these fibers and particles coming together in divine purpose to serve you, to assist you in the fulfillment of who you are, of what your promise is, of what your heart’s desire is, and what you choose to do.” (1)

That’s a lot to digest.

***

Every atomic, every subatomic particle has purpose.  We’ve just had explained a matter so fundamental to any causal study of life that I reeled from the impact of it when I read it – speaking as a cross-cultural spiritual student.

If everything has purpose, is that the force that determines an organism’s future direction? Is that the attractive force that holds a colony or community together?  What relation has purpose to love? On and on the questions emerge from that one statement.

The heart of his message is this:

“You are an integrated person, a human, that has many of these fibers and particles coming together in divine purpose to serve you, to assist you in the fulfillment of who you are, of what your promise is, of what your heart’s desire is, and what you choose to do.”

Staying simply with the physical level for a moment, the fibers and particles of my body have come together in divine purpose to serve me and help me fulfill my mission.

I haven’t expressed my gratitude to that little tribe in the train-station locker that venerates me – my body. I give it only scraps of attention and yet it does its job, day in and day out.

I express my gratitude to all my loving and cooperating elements, that have sustained me and brought me life all these years.

Archangel Michael on the Transcendental – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Archangel Michael on the Transcendental

The subject of the world beyond the Twelve Dimensions is not one that I can actually ask the Company of Heaven about in An Hour with an Angel. 

One group of galactics that I asked about it on the air would not let me post their transcribed answer.

And the Divine Mother wants me to stay within certain limits – easy to understand and interesting to the mass of readers.

But here I had the chance to ask Archangel Michael about it in a private setting. What he said has simply whetted my appetite to know more.

Thanks to Linda for our reading and Dana for our transcript.


From Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 18, 2017.


Steve Beckow: I used to think of the Transcendental as identical with the void, with Parabrahman, the Godhead, and it was the destination, what the Mother calls Home. And once you enter the Transcendental you are Home and that was it.

But more and more I’m getting the sense that there is differentiation in the Transcendental, that there may even be dimensions of some sort. I feel less and less secure in my knowledge of what lies beyond the 12 dimensions. Can you help me understand little more about what does lie beyond the 12 dimensions please?

Archangel Michael: What lies beyond the 12 dimensions is the entire universe. I do not say that casually. Your question is deep and profound and important.

Dimensional reality upon the planet of Earth and elsewhere by the way, is a framework within which has been created by the Mother and the Father to some extent, in order to have a workable experience of being in that fluidity of form and outer form in some ways.

Your question about the transcendental; it is not so much defined (this is our starting point) by dimensional reality. It is not that the dimensionality is not present, but it is not rigid. Now that is contradictory to what we have been telling you in so far as there is a fluidity that humans have forgotten, between the 12 dimensions, within which you operate.

Think of it as outside, that all of this, what you can fathom of dimensional reality, is present. But does it have the same level of importance of structure that you have become used to and is defined as the human experience?

There is far greater fluidity and it is not that that is a particularly overriding knowingness, beingness. When you’re in what you have referred to as the transcendental state, which is blissful beloved, and you have touched upon it at times…

Steve: What in ecstasy or exultation? But not the experience of bliss I had in late 2015. That was about seventh or 10th dimensional right?

AAM: That is correct. But understand if you think of the transcendental, in many ways it is reflecting (because it is beckoning at the same time) into these various dimensions what is possible; what the true experience of what you have termed “wholeness”.

In that soup of transcendental experience there is the knowing and the experience, the sense of being in complete unification with the Mother. So it does feel, and is, like home. So do not eliminate that but think of it in a practical way.

If you were to journey far away, as you have, from Vancouver and you are returning and you are landing at the airport you’re seeing the ocean and the mountains and the familiar neighborhoods because your taxi now, you will think, “Oh, thank goodness I’m home!” And it will feel, not to diminish, it will feel blissful, it will feel joyful and you will know in every sense of that word, you will know that you are headed home because you know your internal GPS will say, “Now I can really go home!”.

Steve: In the vision in 1987, the small golden star, after the first enlightenment, rushed home and plunged into the big golden sun and was seen no more. But this is obviously not the way it is, right? Because we come out from the Transcendental back into the dimensions on reassignment, do we not?

AAM: If you so choose. Because when you are in the small “h” home, there is a sense of the truth and the might and the power not only of your beautiful self, but also of the Mother and the Universe of the One and there is a sense of such empowerment in the positive meaning of that word, that you see and you know, not only what is possible but what the potential is.

And so very often you take that and you take it not as just an assignment. You take it in jubilation that you can again serve the Mother and you can bring that potential back and do something else.

So often human beings think of the return to the Twelve Dimensions as a punishment. “Oh, I must have karma. I must’ve done something wrong. Here I am stuck again” and that is not so. What you have chosen to do is to bring the potentiality of that love in form which was the plan of the Mother.

It was for her Angels and sheer energy to have an experience of love in form. So you say, “Oh my goodness! I know I can help and I know I can do this” and you come back.

Now there are some who will stay in that, what you think of as, the Transcendental for a very long time. And that is allowed. Because what they are deciding is that they are truly at in the transit to the final return, to the final reincorporation.

Which to truly confuse you, will in fact again…. It is like the energy being refueled and it is like in some ways reconstituting the Mother but she does not have need of reconstitution so that energy very often will explode back into the universe in an entirely different form.

Steve: And when you say that energy will explode back into the universe, are you talking about individuation in an entirely different form?

AAM: It is individuation in an entirely different form. It can be a planet. It can be a mountain range or an ocean, yes.

Think of this: When that should happen and you are reborn as a planet or as an ocean, it is because you are of, not just physically big, but of a magnitude that you can hold that much energy. It is a blessing. It is a big profound blessing. It is not as some think that that energy has become an inanimate object, quite the contrary.

Steve: Well, if it hasn’t become an inanimate object, what has it become Lord?

AAM: A living existing collection of energy that is there for a sacred purpose.

Steve: Does it have an active life of its own?

AAM: Oh, yes.

Steve: And we don’t know anything about that, do we?

AAM: No, you do not. And so now I have truly teased you!

Steve: Yes, indeed you have, thank you!

Archangel Michael on the Use of the Universal Laws

I’ve been invoking and studying the universal laws and wanted to know from Archangel Michael if I was using them correctly. His answer is informative.

Thanks to Linda for our reading and Dana for our transcript.


From Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 18, 2017.


Steve Beckow: Is my invocation of universal law having an effect? Am I doing well in that area?

Archangel Michael: No dear heart, it is a waste of time! (Laughing)

Steve: Thank you very much! Goodbye!

AAM: It is good, it is right, it is just, it is balanced that you asked this very question and let us be clear with thee. Is this a sacred undertaking? It is not just a ritual, it is not just an application, and it is not just an invocation.

It is the embodiment (and this is where you are going) of the laws collectively and individually that you are working with. You have come to understand the magnitude and scope of truly embracing these laws and bringing them to the forefront.

In some ways, and we know the difficulty, we don’t fully experience but we know and understand the difficulty of being in a human form and your spiritual quest that you have been on has been profound.

There are moments when you invoke the law or when you talk to others about the law, you think, “this formula, this mechanism, this adherence to the law; perhaps it is too simple. Perhaps it is too complex.”

It is neither. It is the explanation, not only the definition, not only the rule, but the explanation giving, (yes, perhaps in its simplest form, that matters not, we tend to admire “straightforward”) it is given to you so that there is finally that voice screaming in the darkness at night that we hear far too often.

This is how it works. And, beloved one, it does work and when you are invoking the law you are not merely [?] (and I say this in a way of commending thee) you are absolutely on track. You are invoking the law but what you are doing (because you have reached this point) is not simply, “I invoke the law of change,” etc.

You invoke it and you are pulling it down and you are allowing it to enter into the tapestry within and the tapestry without, even into your all of your physical, etc., bodies. It is as if you are wearing that shroud.

So you are proceeding to be the embodiment and this has been part of your journey and is part of your journey and part of the conundrum: It is not the law in and of itself that presents the confusion, nor the lack of clarity. It is the how to. “Am I doing it and am I doing it in the fullness?”

Now I can tell you and reassure you that you are doing it correctly, but that the sense of truly being in alignment and utilizing the laws will grow and this is part of what you are doing. You’ve often asked about conjoint efforts, undertakings, joint missions with Kathleen and this [promoting use of the universal laws] most certainly is one of them.

Steve: And when you say “this,” could I just ask you to be very clear… “This”

AAM: This, the embodiment, the translation, the teaching, the sharing of universal laws.

The Nature of the Soul or Self – Part 2/2 – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

The Nature of the Soul or Self – Part 2/2

(Concluded from Part 1, yesterday.)

We heard the Divine Mother call the penultimate Reality – the soul – “the essence of One.” (1) On another occasion, she told us:

“You did not start out in form. You simply started out as a spark of light, of love, and then the adventure began.” (2)

Archangel Michael through Ronna Herman has told us quite a bit about this “spark of light” over the years. He uses language similar to the Mother’s.

“You are a point of Light,” he says, “a vibrant Spark of the Divine.”  (3)

On another occasion he advised us to “view all that is presently in your life as transitory except the Love/Light and Spiritual Fire within your Sacred Heart and Soul.”  (4)

He offers the metaphor of the seed atom (Adam, Aton, Atman):

“The Soul could be described as a small Seed Atom of pulsating Life Force energy which resides within the Sacred Heart….

“The Soul may be only a small Spark of Life within the heart area in those who are still ensnared in the illusion of the lower dimensions; however, as it blooms and blossoms into its full dynamic power, it expands.” (5)

Elsewhere he calls it “the White Fire, Sacred Seed Atom – your own personal Divine Facet of our Father/Mother God” and “a SUN CHILD of our Father/Mother God.” (6)

He gives us our divine history. What difference is there in saying the “essence of One” and in saying: “At a cosmic or Omniversal level, you are ‘Spirit’ – a facet or a Seed Atom of Divine Essence sent forth from the heart core of the Supreme Creator.” They sound the same to me.

At that level, we’re fully conscious of our true identity, he explains.

“At that level, you are fully conscious of who you are and of your connection with the Supreme Creator; you are aware of and know your ‘I AM’ identity.” (7)

Others agree with these definitions. Fran Zapeda’s Pallas Athena, for instance, calls us “a pristine ball of brilliant light endowed with all the knowledge and beauty of the universes just waiting below the surface to be uncovered.” (8)

And Blossom Goodchild’s Galactic Federation of Light call us a “divine light,” nothing other than love.

[Galactic Federation of Light] Let us … describe the soul self BEFORE EVER entering into the human form. …

IT IS NOTHING OTHER … IT CANNOT BE ANYTHING ELSE … IT IS LOVE..

YOU ARE DIVINE LIGHT … THAT IS IT IN A NUTSHELL! (9)

So there’s general agreement that the penultimate Reality called the Self or soul is a Spark of Light and Love, Spiritual or White Fire, “a facet or a Seed Atom of Divine Essence sent forth from the heart core of the Supreme Creator.” (7)

***

Not surprisingly, once we know the Divine Light of the soul in any way, concentration on it will lead to deeper and deeper knowledge of it, until the discrete Light becomes the Light beyond creation.

This process is what Jesus was describing in parable when he said that the man who had found the treasure buried in a field sold all that he had and bought the field.

The person who’s seen the Light that the Self is drops all other desires (sells all he has) than the one desire to know it completely. Concentrating on that Light, he at last realizes its Oneness with the Father (he has bought the field).

Ramana Maharshi described the process that Jesus points to this way:

“The Heart is self-luminous. … If the mind is turned in towards the source of light, objective knowledge ceases and Self alone shines forth as the Heart.” (10)

Ramana Maharshi says that the Self or soul resides on the other side of the heart aperture or hridayam, just right of the breastbone.

I follow Sri Ramana in believing that the Self is the heart (11) and that it shines and sends forth love when the hridayam is opened.

Realize it and “you [will] realize that you are the dreamer as well as the dream.” (12) Surrender to the Light beyond it and we become the unbounded Ocean of Love.

This step is the last we’ll ever take. Until we re-emerge.

Archangel Michael on Our Bodies and the Integrated Self – Steve Beckow @ Golden Age of Gaia

Archangel Michael on Our Bodies and the Integrated Self

Hi


In this next excerpt from an Oct. 18, 2017 reading, we start out by looking at various notions of our bodies – the Hindu notion of panchakosas or five sheaths; the Spiritualist notion of astral bodies, mental bodies, etc.

For that matter, our notions as lightholders that we’re a physical body, a lightbody (Merkaba), etc. There are many views of our various bodies. How do they all fit together?

They don’t, Archangel Michael says. They just represent what we can understand at the moment. The truth is that our bodies are more fluid and integrated than what we’re comprehending.

Metaphors like the Babushka doll have some overall usefulness to help us get to a much more accurate view of things, like stepping stones.

He invites us to experience ourselves, rather than simply think about ourselves. I know what he means from as far back as Cold Mountain days.

And you know me anyways. First intellectual knowledge. Then experiential knowledge. Then realized knowledge. So my ears perked up.

I find it remarkable that the night before my reading I couldn’t think of what I was going to ask him and yet the reading itself has yielded so much material. It was clear to me by the way he was speaking that he meant it not only for me, but for lightworkers.

This part of the reading was so rich for me that I added my comments between the lines. There’s just so much to say about the points he raises.

Thanks to Linda for our reading and Dana for our transcript.


From Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 18, 2017.


Steve Beckow: Hindus speak of Panchakosas – five sheaths. Spiritualists talk of the astral body, mental body, causal body, buddhic body, etc. And you speak of a mental and an emotional body. I’ve never heard anybody else as far as I’m aware, use those exact terms [mental and emotional body] in that way before. And I’ve wrestled with it myself.

[“Mental body” for me, who was raised in British Spiritualism, means the Fifth-Dimensional body, the body associated with the Mental Plane of the afterlife. Michael uses it to mean something completely different. I think his use of it is pretty close to our everyday notion of “the mind.” And I do live in the mind. No doubt about it.]

Can you tell me in your view, what are the bodies we assume as we progress through the dimensions? I can’t say they’re hierarchical anymore, because they’re not. But as we evolve.

Archangel Michael: As you progress, think of it in this way. It is a further delineation, definition and integration – but we will get to that part – of who you are. So in this, let us make it very simple.

There are not sheaths, as one would think of it, between your bodies. You know that.

[As experiential and realized knowledge, yes. Not as intellectual knowledge. I.e., in the experiences provided by Cold Mountain Institute, Zen, est, enlightenment intensives – yes; in the knowledge provided by science – no. But I’m definitely interested.]

Just as the dimensions are fluid so that you can move through them, so the layers of your body are also fluid.

[I think that what he says here is designed to be “gotten” not only by the mind but even more as an immediate experience. Experience the fluidity of the layers of the body, he appears to be asking.]

Now with the development, shall we say, of illusion, the awareness of these various layers – and we are not decrying any of the explanations that are given because they have helped billions of people to understand that they are so much more than simply their physical self – but in reality there is a fluidity between all of your bodies.

[Not fixed, but fluid. Experience fluidity. Realize fluidity is the invitation.]

And when the Plan of the Mother is unfolding, that seal that is around your enormous body, your Seal of Solomon, will in fact be dissolved. It will no longer be necessary.

But let us go back particularly to a discussion around the mental and emotional bodies.

Now part of this construct has been born and is reinforced by the separation – think what I am saying; it is supposed to be fluid – but there has been separation of the humans insofar as this, “I feel this, but I think that,” goes.

Now you, beloved one, and we have talked of this, have a tendency to live – your home base has been – your mental body.

[Not in the Fifth-Dimensional mental body on the Mental Plane of the afterlife but in what we commonly consider “the mind.”

Remember that as far as I’m concerned as a cross-cultural spiritual scholar, I can only get these matters satisfactorily verified by beings such as Archangel Michael or the Divine Mother.]

You have taken great pride and comfort in having this, almost a refuge.

But what you have seen over the past several years is that that fluidity between your emotional body and your mental body, that imaginary layer, that sheath, has dissipated and you are living more in your emotional body – but not so far as either/or.

[All very true.]

You have been experiencing the fluidity between these various bodies and at times it causes you great consternation because you don’t know which way to lean, rather than finding the balance between the two: That it is not either/or.

I am not living in my emotional body and I am not living in my mental body. I am finding the supreme balance in all of this.


I have to put a bookmark in here and interrupt.

Do you notice how we’re back to the same point again in the reading: Balance, balance, balance. I am not just this; I am not just that. I am all of it.

I hold within my own collective consciousness the memory of all of it. I’ve experienced all of it. And I bless it all.

Equilibrium, equanimity, serenity, calmness, balance is what’s being emphasized over and over again in this reading.

Another theme is that what he says here can’t just reside with us as intellectual knowledge. It has to progress to experiential and then realized knowledge to really have an impact on us.

In this case, he wants us to adjust our vision from our bodies being fixed, to our bodies being fluid. … But even that statement isn’t the whole truth. It’s just as much as we can comprehend at the moment.


Archangel Michael: Now, I do not wish to diminish the value of the variations of these layers that you have for your mental body and your emotional body but let’s talk about the mental body. It has extraordinary value because in that – and this is going to become even trickier – are many of your DNA triggers, capacitors, influences.

You have the ability for truly expansive mental clarity, exploration, explosion, discovery etc. That [comes] when you are really utilizing that area of your being to truly bring forth what you, in your soul design, mission, and purpose – which is but a reflection of your soul design – are here to do.

So even when you were deciding to come, you were saying – in your own plan and your plan with all of us – “I really want a strong mental-layer body and capacity.”

At the same time, you don’t want to be restrictive of the other bodies because alone – you know that spells isolation and separation. It means you won’t have access to the fullness of who you are.

[This statement resonated with me.]

So no being ever comes forth into form without all of the bodies being present. And part of your journey is learning about the balance and the fluidity between these various bodies.

[I am amazed. Looking at matters this way is entirely new to me.]

And as you come to understand them, you can more consciously access them to build them but also access them to simply give you the support or the expansion that you need.

Steve: But am I like a babushka doll? Am I a body inside another body inside another body?

[Is there some design to it all?]

AAM: That is the way that the humans can construe it in order to understand it, but it is all One. For where you are right now, that [reflects] how you are thinking about yourself and it is a useful construct that you are the babushka doll [for now].

Steve: Should I let go of the notion of the Panchakosas and astral bodies, mental bodies, and causal bodies?

AAM: What we would like you to do is embrace the entire being called Steve.

Steve: Well, just looking at that for a moment, there is a Higher Self, Universal Self and an I Am Presence. How do we understand how all this fits together?

AAM: By not being fully anchored in just your mental body. Emotionally, causally, you know that you are so much more. You know this to be true.

[Yes, I know it to be true.]

So stop this feeling that you need to define each layer or access each layer. Know that this is an integrated self.

[OK! I got it! Integrated, fluid. Thank you! To be experienced and realized.]

Steve: Well, from my past experience, I know that one’s experience of that integrated self will dispel all conflicting thoughts I’m having about it just as one experience of transformative love utterly undermined every thought I’d ever had about love up to that moment.

Is it the case here as well that, once I experience it, all will be clear?

AAM: That is correct.

Steve: Okay, I can wait for that.

AAM: And while you are seeking definition, which is not forbidden by any stretch, but while you are seeking it, it is helpful to others because there is a great deal of misunderstanding about this [integrated self] and, again, about the fluidity of the bodies.

Steve: It has to be helpful, Lord.  I wouldn’t be writing on it if it was just of interest to me so I’m glad to hear that it’s of value to others.
