Speaking as the Self – which Christians call the Christ, Hindus the Atman, and Buddhists the Buddha Nature – and not as Steve, I can say “I am the truth, the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
If you were speaking as the Self, you too could say, “I am the truth, the way and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
When I asked him on An Hour with an Angel what he meant by saying I am the truth, the way and the life, Jesus responded that he was talking as the “I am.” He was “aligning with All, with Source, with Father/Mother One. That is the alignment. And if you, Steve, or listeners, say, ‘I am the truth, [the way, and the life]’ then you have aligned with that, and you have become that.” (1)
In a sense my twin flame, and your twin flame, and the twin flame of us all as the Self could be said to be the Divine Mother. In this world, which is like angel food cake, there are two ingredients mixed together: matter and consciousness. Matter is the Mother, who encompasses all matter though she is only pure consciousness, and the consciousness that is embedded in matter is the Self, which, at our essence, is you and me.
Matter is an illusion but consciousness is the Reality.
Matter and consciousness are mixed together to form the world and consciousness is given the task of knowing itself beyond matter, of disentangling itself from the mix and seeing through the illusion.
I am given the task of knowing myself as pure consciousness, a consciousness which is in fact everything. That pure consciousness is formless, transcendental, imminent in everything. It is in fact the Father.
That is my mandate, my assignment, my task in life. And it’s also yours. To seek, find and return to the Father.
Ascension is achieved in a level of enlightenment called sahaja nirvikalpa samadhi, (2) in which I know myself permanently as the Father (pure consciousness which has become everything).
My knowing myself as the Father becomes my natural state and I know that forever, without the knowledge ever leaving me. My heart is opened permanently and there is no more separation between my heart and the Heart of all, that the Father is.
That is the end of duality. That is also the point of liberation from ever needing to be born again into the world of duality.
There are levels of enlightenment beyond that. Ascension to the Fifth Dimension is just the first step, away from duality or separation from God. But there are many steps beyond that on the return journey to God.
Twin flames are reminders of the original division into matter and consciousness. They remind us that the world is a mixture of the two and that we must know ourselves as One. The fusion of the twin flames is said by some to be a precursor to Ascension, but of that I know nothing. It may turn out to be so and it may not. I don’t know.
But I will know myself as pure consciousness. Of that I have no doubt.
It’s my conjecture that pure consciousness, known as being everything, is realized in stillness and silence. Pure consciousness itself, compared with our material reality, is ultimate emptiness, (3) ultimate stillness, and ultimate silence.
Ordinarily I’d expect pure consciousness to be known in passive meditation. But we’re lightworkers and we’re here to serve. Though passive meditation can and will benefit us, I still do not think that we as lightworkers will be asked to know Reality through passive meditation, but through the active meditation that service is.
But whether that’s true or not, remains to be seen.

(2) Steve Beckow: I’m trying to understand what level of enlightenment Ascension corresponds to. And I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called — and I’ll make this clear to readers — sahaja samadhi. Am I correct? …
SB: It does?
DM: That is correct.
SB: Oh, eureka! Thank you, Mother! I’m so happy to have that confirmed. (“The Divine Mother: Come to Me as I Come to You – Part 1/2,” Oct. 17, 2012, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/10/the-divine-mother-come-to-me-as-i-come-to-you-part-12/.)
