I was glad to see Mira say, in her last report:
“What matters the most is that you remain peaceful and calm. Stay on a level footing. Refuse to buy into the mass conditioning. Claim what is true for you. Join each other in prayer and meditation. Stay connected with each other. Find places of joy and happiness within and with each other. Laugh. Take note of what is happening and see how you can assist in clearing the energy.
“The focus is on the inner realms and in connection with the higher Realms of Light. You are not tourists on the planet. You know your way around. Create Love and beauty. Claim your divine right to be the planetary guardians and helpers. Release the old ways of being and expecting life to be the way it used to be.” (1)
I feel many a twinge when I see or hear of another probable cabal-inspired shooting or similar destabilizing incident, that seems intended to fool society into Muslim-bashing, etc.
To keep forging ahead when the newspapers fan the uproar is difficult. Not buying into “the mass conditioning” is hard. Whether we’re being pressed by violent stagecraft or Christmas shopping, we’re being herded like sheep from one place the cabal wants us to another.
I refuse to be herded from Valentine’s Day to Mother’s Day to Father’s Day to Labor, Thanksgiving, and Memorial Days, to finally end up exhausted at Christmas, only to promise that I’ll do better in the New Year.
Mira tells us: Stay connected, find places of joy, laugh. All very hard to do and not look like one has taken leave of one’s senses. But I’m also convinced, and I wasn’t before, that what we do has a disproportionate impact on the rest of the world, directly and via the collective consciousness. Refusing to be herded and remaining as love instead I now think of as a most subversive action.
Another message that I happened to come across which also impacted me was from the Lord Maitreya on An Hour with an Angel, through Linda, back in June of this year. Lord Maitreya said:
“What you try and do in some of these descriptive terms [of love] — which I fully understand — is you are trying to separate out, to give descriptors to the various forms of love that you feel and experience and know, rather than simply jumping in feet first, head first — it matters not — into the love. … When you … allow yourself to simply be engulfed, transformed, fully engaged, in every chakra, every meridian, every fiber of your being, then what you are doing — ipso facto — is in fact being the love. Because you cannot dive in, embrace, or engage — truly engage — in the love without becoming part and parcel of that love.
“Now, does it transform you if you truly allow it to, if you surrender to it, if you welcome it, if you determine yourself, your free will, and your choice, to be it? Most certainly — beyond your imagination and even beyond what you think is inspiration.” (2)
That so crystalized matters for me. How interesting it is that I, for one, had so many descriptive terms for love when I never actually experienced it and, once I did experience it, all the descriptors flew out the window.
What we feel is so much more powerful and convincing in the moment than what we think. And what we realize is even more powerful still.
That we “become love” is a good way of describing how, when love floods the countryside, everything conceptual about it, everything dualistic is drowned and disappears.
And we emerge with face shining, having no more interest in something we showed acute interest in only moments earlier.
Maitreya’s language is also interesting. He talks about when we reach a certain stage in consciousness, we can become creative and proactive in being love. But it’s how he talks about the stages in consciousness that catches my attention.
“So, when you get to the point where you are….
“When you recognize you are….
“When you understand and again begin to enjoy — the joy is a factor here — that you are….
“When you have come to this point in your consciousness, and what you and we have termed this unity or unitive consciousness, then you….”
Every day I “get to the point where I am,” “recognize that I am,” “understand and begin to enjoy,” and “come to a point in my consciousness.” This process is indeed a gradual unfoldment as well as a sudden experiencing. And the gradual part is a process of getting to a point, recognizing, and understanding.
It’s left up to us to supply with our sharing and comparing notes what’s unique about our unfoldment; the Company of Heaven simply helps us to understand the process. When we’re going through it for the first time, this road map is most helpful and then we fill in the details by telling what we saw along the way.
Last night I got to a point, to use his words, where I saw that I felt spiritually whole and complete. Uttering the words “I am spiritually whole and complete” exactly matched the space I was in and the truth set me free of any residual qualms and fears. I was bathed in a marvellous peace and wanted nothing else.
This realization is an example both of the gradual unfoldment of consciousness and also of the sudden flashes of insight that help us along the way. Each moment of discernment is a road which, if taken, can lead to a marvellous place.
Here’s another. As I was walking to the coffee shop yesterday morning, I had a brief flash of an austere but totally-satisfying space which I searched for a word to capture. The only word I could find was “exaltation.” I spent a moment in an exalted space.
No, I did not say I was an exalted being. I’m not special in any way. But the space itself is exalted. It reminded me of the “regal” space I felt in the Vipassana meditation workshop.
I feel embarrassed discussing this because, as we mount the crystal stairway to heaven, we’re going to encounter “exalted” spaces and we need to be able to discuss them without being seen as elitist or arrogant. These are spaces encountered along the way.
I’d say that “exaltation” is an indication of a possible space that lies beyond love, bliss and ecstacy. I also suspect that there are countless spaces that lie beyond exaltation and that all is a steadily-unfolding story of ever-deepening grace.
