Written before “New Wave of Love.”
May I clarify some matters about what I’m writing and why I write this way? It may or may not be the same for other writers.
My writing over the years has become more and more personal. That can raise alarm bells. It has become more personal for a number of reasons.
One is that I’m on the awareness path and one’s self is who and what one talks about on that path. Others talk about themselves and we share and compare notes. So in the circles I used to travel in and which I miss, to write as I do is not only accepted but encouraged.
Another is that Archangel Michael has made it known to me that part of my mission is to go through Ascension publicly, to write about the cleansing of vasanas that I do and the various stages of unfoldment I go through. (1)
It makes sense to ask somebody on the awareness path to do that.
I’m not interested in being a spiritual teacher and readers know that I’ve rebuffed email attempts to have me assume that position. Please do not do ask it of me and I won’t embarrass you by refusing.
I’m a writer and that word means something for me. It’s a discipline. And for me it’s in another galaxy from spiritual teacher.
And besides, a spiritual teacher, in my opinion, should have had the experience of sahaja samadhi and I haven’t. When we all have it in Ascension, there’ll be no more need for teachers. We’ll all be teachers then.
In my view, such a service as I perform is valuable if it invites and encourages others to try on the situations I describe and experience vicariously the emotions I feel, the thoughts I think.
For example, if I were talking about issues around money, others might have the same issues and pass through them along with me as I process them. Isn’t that an aspect of clearing for the collective? And that is service to the Mother. And others.
Such a service is not valuable if it’s in service to self rather than service to others. If it serves only to glorify the ego, to say “what a good boy am I!”, then it has no value. It drags a person backwards.
When we don’t live up to our potential because we serve the ego, we’re out of integrity with ourselves. At a level just below consciousness, we know who we are. And we know it’s not the ego. We know we’re living a charade.
That’s a life that only satisfies for a short while and then leaves us hungering again.
Behind my writing are two wishes.
- I wish that all of us would get more personal and share more about ourselves.
- I also wish that more of us would learn the art of listening and practise it.
These are elements of the awareness path. They lead to ever-increasing awareness and awareness is who we are. Therefiore my writing is also my path: both proceed through awareness. Expanding awareness, consciousness-raising, getting into ourselves and finding out what’s really down there, these are also elements of the awareness path.
(1) Archangel Michael: You are focusing on helping others understand their spiritual journey. It is a time of incredible, remarkable, miraculous transformation for the human race. And there is a need for many voices, different slants on the same process, the same journey, for people to come to understand that transformation ― it is not only a process; it is a choice.
And it is the choices that are being made, not the big choices ― of course, that includes the big choice to go forward ― but it is the small, everyday decisions, actions, and making time to understand the impact of what you are doing, and allowing the partnership with us, the partnership with their own guardians ― what they think of as guardian angels or guides ― to allow that to emerge, and to allow what may at moments feel dissociative, may feel confusing, but to keep going.
It is the teaching and the sharing of the assumption of not only personal responsibility ― and that is a word that is often avoided ― and taking action in the here and now of your reality, to go forward. And it is a feeling of, “no matter what” [i.e., valor].
You are showing people and sharing with people how your star brothers and sisters react, or receive, some of the harsher emotional fields.
You are teaching your readership how to discern what comes through as truth, how to act on truth, how to simply dismiss and let go of what does not resonate as truth. …
So you are, through yourself and your writing, through demonstration, showing how to let go of drama ― this cancer, the largest human addiction. (AAM, April 25, 2013.)
