The spiritual experience I had yesterday, (1) which seems quite synchronous with Stephen’s experience as well, (2) continued to build throughout the evening and reached an apex with me achieving a point of certainty that love is all there is.
That experience lasted for around two hours and was sublime. But I also realized the need to let it go.
Archangel Michael said to me some time ago now that I could visit the higher dimensions, but not stay – not this lifetime. This lifetime is about the work, as Cirque de Soleil might put it. (3) I knew within me that, if I remained in the space I was in, I’d be lost to the work.
In that mood, I had no thought of anything else except the love I was experiencing. I not only laid down tools but I could have walked off into the sunset if I remained in that space.
I also realized that the truth of the matter – that love is all there is – is only known at the highest dimensions I could imagine. There is no use telling someone in the Third Dimension that love is all there is because it seems totally true that love is not all there is. There are any number of circumstances that argue against it, primarily how we feel, which is often anything but loving.
But, seen from a higher perspective, the truth of that statement emerges. The crux of the matter lies in the meaning of the word “is.” “Is” signifies something that exists permanently, enduringly. Yes, there is the illusion of “not-love,” but the illusion does not persist; it does not endure.
The illusion is real on its own level for as long as it does persist, but then it lifts and love is shown in that higher dimension to be the only thing that endures, persists, is permanent.
And all else is shown to be made of and from that same love, even the illusion. That’s what I saw for the brief time the realization lasted.
I went through quite a challenging time during a part of the experience. At one point, when it was most intense, I went through a complete memory wipe. I could remember nothing from the time before the realization arose. It was as if I started anew.
The thought of turning around and facing the world from the point of near-amnesia was daunting.
One can look like a pretty offbeat, unconventional, flipped-out guy holding to that realization and one needs to decide whether one is ready for that or not. It calls for significant courage to live from the perspective that everything is love and nothing else but love.
The most common reason why not to is that many of these realizations can be fleeting and one can do things during them that one later regrets. I decided to wait to see whether this insight lasted and it did not, as much from my own choice as from any other reason.
I’m left with an after-glow. I’m left with the certainty that, in the end, love is all there is, that I am love, you are love, even the illusion is love. It’s enough for me at this moment just to tuck that knowing away, get on with the work, and know that I’ll return to it some day.
