Ethnography is one subdiscipline within the discipline of anthropology.
A culture for me is an organization of ideas, manifest in act and artifact, though consisting of neither, through which human beings understand their world and take purposive action.
Every society has a culture. We’re creating a new form of society, without borders, without racial, gender or other biases, and ascended. That society has its own emergent culture and lightworkers, by their thoughts and actions, are creating it as we speak.
What does “ascended” mean? Ascension for me means a radical, transformative, and reorganizing expansion of consciousness. This expansion removes one, for the time it’s experienced, from the vibrational frequency of the Third and Fourth Dimensions and leaves one in the vibrational frequency of the Fifth or higher.
Along with this elevation of consciousness comes the experience of states of being like love, bliss, happiness, tranquillity, satisfaction, and aliveness.
When ethnographers enter a new village, and I’m guessing at this, they begin by first orienting themselves. They make notes of all they see, usually without trying to impose a form on it. So I shall begin by making notes of all I’ve noticed about ascension so far without imposing a form on it either.
First of all, it’s been my experience that ascension occurs primarily because of, and in a moment of, release. It isn’t something that requires effort, struggle, labor, exertion. One releases oneself into ascension.
Secondly, strong determination contributes to ascension (what Buddhists call, if I remember correctly, adiktan). We have to be 100% resolved to ascend, not 90% or even 99%. If you had a bicycle tire that was 90% whole and had a gash in it over 10% of the area, the bicycle couldn’t be ridden. Even a gash of 1% in the tire would still mean it couldn’t be ridden. To ride the bike, the tire must be unpunctured over 100% of its area.
So with ascension, one must be 100% resolved to ascend. Without that, there is not the “juice,” the resolve, the determination to ascend. The mother who lifts the car off her child has found the juice to do it. And the universe moves in support of her. To make the universe move in response to our resolve, that resolve must be 100%.
That’s why certain practices are useful. Making a promise, commitent, or declaration, taking a stand, sharing a withhold, telling the truth at a deep level – these stir the soul and well position a strongly-determined person to ascend. Any indecision or wishy washiness and the air goes out of the tire.
Third, the practice of the divine qualities are essential to create the most fertile ground in which the seed of ascension can blossom.
For Buddhists, the divine qualities arymore than simply sila or morality. That’s at best a matter of integrity – necessary but not sufficient. More is needed.
The divine qualities are what Buddha called the paramitas or virtues. These must be practiced for there to be a tire to inflate or fertile ground to plant the seed in.
Fourth, there will be different experiences of ascension with different people. For Paul Backes, (1) ascension landed him in a different place. For me, ascension was an expansion of consciousness with no perception of landing in a different place. Undoubtedly people’s experiences will vary.
After my third trip through the ascension portal, I attended the Vancouver meet-up, at which another member related experiences which were almost exactly the same as mine. So some have similar experiences; some have different.
Fifth, being in sacred partnership magnifies and multiplies the results of spiritual practice. Love is the royal road to ascension, in my view. It’s what allowed my sacred partner and I to climb the ladder of Jacob’s consciousness and reach the ascended state. There ‘s no road more direct and promising, as far as I’m concerned, and love in relationship is especially fertile.
Sixth, going through the ascension portal only brings us into the first subplane of the Fifth Dimension, what I call the “vestibule.” Further stages await us, according to the Divine Mother and Archangel Michael.
They are Brahmajnana, or God-Realization, and Sahaja Samadhi, or our natural state. These happen deeper into the Fifth Dimension – i.e., more subplanes in than the vestibule that I’m in.
Upon the attainment of Sahaja, we’re liberated. Hindus call this moksha. It’s the death of our root vasanas or core issues.
That’s probably enough for one go. These are noticings from having landed in the ascended state. These noticings, from me and others, can eventually be gathered together to produce an ethnography of ascension.
