And what are we as individuals to build in this lifetime – or any lifetime for that matter – but ways of being that come closer and closer to the Divine?
I don’t think that anyone would deny such a statement. But I do think that we don’t focus on it and its implications quite as much as we might. We’ve talked quite a few times here about the fact that the purpose of our lives, the reason we were born and continue to be born, is to reach the point of evolution where we realize that all of us are in fact God.
Why the purpose of our lives is to realize God is that each time an individual does, God has the opportunity to meet himself/herself (there’s no gender in the Divine but no word for that which is beyond gender). God meets God when one of us realizes who we are. God meets God in a moment of our enlightenment.
So Nova Us is an improvement on the old us in that who we are when living from the new paradigm is more divine, more godlike.
There isn’t a university course entitled Godly Ways of Being. There isn’t a workshop called Living as the Divine. But on Nova Earth, there just may be. There’s no difference between the new paradigm, so called, and the divine qualities and it falls to us to explore, envision and adopt those divine qualities in our lives, now more than ever.
Under certain conditions, one could simply summarize the divine qualities in a single word (love) and be done with it. And if we lived on the 105th Dimension, being simply love may be exactly what we discover life to be. There may be nothing more needed, no functions of life to attend to, no need for movement or batting an eye.
But here on Earth, even in the Fifth Dimension I’d imagine, we do many things that bring us into different forms of contact and communication and so the form love takes may be different.
Those in the helping professions may experience love as compassion. Parents may experience love as loving-kindness. Social activists may experience love as determination. Soldiers may experience love as courage. It’s not that all these forms of love are not love, but they have shades to them that reflect the particular circumstances they may be embedded in and the particular purposes that need to be achieved.
Moreover the task of realizing ourselves as God, which is the end and aim of the total journey that we’re on from God to God, is not effected in the last analysis by simply being love. It is in fact effected by realizing the Truth. So here we have at least one other divine quality or attribute that we need to pay attention to.
But there are more. The task of realizing the Truth is only effected by achieving a state of detachment or equanimity from all that competes for our attention with God. Now we have three divine attributes: love, truth and equanimity.
And the journey is long and so patience is a fourth virtue and attribute of the divine. And there are more.
The divine attributes and qualities relate to what God is, what the journey from God to God requires of us, what we must avoid to realize God, etc.
So bringing in Nova Earth, viewed from the standpoint of society, is an ongoing quest to discover and release those parts of us which are divine, immortal, permanent and to distinguish them from those parts of us which are mundane, illusory, and temporary.
God created an illusion and inserted himself/herself in it in a way that we cannot describe or explain. He or she inserted fragments of himself/herself, clothed in illusory matter and given the task of finding themselves in truth, apart from the illusion. And he or she did so simply for the enjoyment of having God meet God.
Nova Earth is the next room we occupy after leaving the Third Dimension (the Fourth being related to the Third and the last stop before leaving duality altogether and entering unity). Nova Earth is a level of existence that requires us to leave behind all qualities and attributes that don’t support unitive consciousness and adopt more refined versions of the divine qualities to ensure that we can live in the more rarified vibrations.
Just as we need oxygen tanks to scale Everest, so we need perfected ways of being to exist in the Fifth Dimension.
Just as children who leave grade school and go to high school are expected to adopt more mature manners, so people who leave the Third Dimension and enter the Fifth need to adopt ways of being that are closer to the divine, more godlike, more perfected.
And the Seventh, even more refined, and the Ninth….
So the proper study of humankind as we build Nova Earth is the divine. The proper study of humankind as we evolve and ascend in any lifetime and on any dimension is a more refined view of the divine. This feature of life never changes.
