We’re involved in a temporal, linear process here in the last vestiges of the Third and Fourth Dimensions. But in the higher dimensions, I suspect, the process is more one of flow.
And the state of consciousness is heightened. Werner Erhard called that state “natural knowing” and “conscious awareness.” I call it “realization.”
We reach a state of realization once in a while, but realization, I think, is the permanent, baseline state of higher-dimensional beings.
It’s a natural state of knowing, which is why Ramana called it sahaja or “natural.” Sahaja results from a permanent heart opening, which is probably why Archangel Michael and the Mother so often speak of “heart consciousness” in relation to Ascension.
But it isn’t a state of consciousness that we necessarily accept easily or readily. I think we tend to think of people in flow as dreamers, idealists, ungrounded, etc. However universal love could not be experienced except in a state of flow and realization, as far as I can see.
When I had a dramatic, explosive experience of love in November, it swept away separative consciousness. That seemed to demonstrate the extent of the flow of love that’s needed for unitive consciousness. I personally have a ways to go to see that be a permanent state for myself.
I’d compare that state to a dam bursting and allowing the pent-up energy of the water to be released in all directions.
Sri Krishna compared it to the land being flooded and asked: “When the whole country is flooded, the reservoir becomes superfluous. So, to the illumined seer, the Vedas are all superfluous.” (1) In the state of flow and realization, in which universal love is possible, such great knowledge is released that Saul and others tend to call it universal knowing and full consciousness.
So flow, realization and universal love seem to go together as a package deal. And permanent unitive consciousness, natural knowing, or conscious awareness seems to be the result of permanently abiding in that state, as we will in the future.
Archangel Gabriel has said that we need to let go into that state. Others like Lao Tzu and Ajahn Sumedho say that letting go is the one indispensable practice. (2) As I’ve said in the past, it doesn’t seem to be a question of attaining. It seems more to be a question of letting go.
We’re always already there but for our false grids, vasanas, belief systems, what Sue Lie’s Arcturians call our perspectives. They seem to be what stand in the way of us and that state.
It’s hard to believe that ideas, attached to, can be the barrier and such a strong barrier, but apparently that’s the case.
