(Continued from Part 1.)
Most confronting in the reading was the Divine Mother’s request that I drop the idea of celibacy.
I’d been considering it as advisable if I were to work on a project of mostly women but the Mother disagreed. I should add that I’m a monk by tendencies. In one of my past lives, I founded a monastic order.
So the idea of celibacy is not shocking to me, but in many ways comfortable.
Relationship has been more of a puzzle to me than celibacy, which in many ways feels simpler and more natural.
As background to this conversation, perhaps keep in mind what the Divine Mother said about the Plan for Ascension in late 2013:
“You are recognizing the pattern of genuine relationship, and what that looks and feels like in this gift not only of heart consciousness and inter-dimensionality, but physicality as well. …
“Is this part of the plan? Dear hearts, it is the plan. There are many details, many aspects, many attunements, but the plan has always been one of union and reunion.” (1)
Keeping that in mind, here’s the conversation between the Mother and me on celibacy.
Divine Mother: My beloved child, son of my heart, do you truly say to me as your Mother, who knows you, that you desire to be celibate?
Steve: Well, no, but I’ll be leading a project of 50-100 women and, if I’m sexually active at that time, they’ll all be watching my gaze. They’ll be watching every word I use, every action. That’s one of the reasons why I thought, “If I’m not in sacred partnership, then I should be celibate.”
DM: Let me speak to you. Your intention and the purity of your heart is wondrous. Yes, in the old realm everybody would be watching the sexual innuendo, the sexual energy, the sexual charge because of the role that the dynamic male has played.
We are talking this day, this moment, this time of new times, of creating an entirely new paradigm of balance. It is not merely the balance of you, beloved one, but of the collective including, and particularly, those who become involved in the special projects.
[We are talking of] the maintaining of sacred respect and honouring, of balance – sexual, mental, emotional, physical, spiritual, within and without – the honoring of the feminine and the divine feminine, the masculine and the divine masculine.
I do not critique where the heart’s desire [lies]. The truth is the desire for celibacy. But I do not urge it where there is yet a higher (yes, I use that word), clearer, purer, balanced way of creating interaction [where] your very project, your organization, your relationships become the new pattern.
So for you to say, “I will engage in this beautiful mission because abuse is abhorrent. I will engage in the gender-equality work but I can only do so by being celibate because my masculinity is so outrageous and aggressive that I must declare celibacy” is defeating the purpose. Do you understand what I say?
S: Yes, yes, I do.
DM: I do not want you to deny yourself or to be lonely in any way. You are too precious for that. (2)
Sexual energy is the hardest energy to manage. As far as I’m aware, orgasm is sought and valued by most people on Earth. It’s one thing that all of us seem to be able to agree on as being enjoyable. (3)
At the same time, so many people’s work has been up-ended because they yielded to and engaged in sexual misconduct. (4) I want to succeed in serving the Mother and I know how difficult it can be to walk the strait and narrow path in the area of sexuality, especially if one is a public figure, travelling a lot, and not at the time in a relationship.
I know I’ll have lots and lots of opportunities to fail and fall. It’s challenging to stay true in this area and celibacy would have been an easy way out. But ’twas not to be.
