The energies are rising. The evolution that’s occurring is evidently invisible to us, but the Company of Heaven expresses its satisfaction with our rate of change.
But what that means for us on the ground, doing the changing, is often confusion, resistance, and anxiety.
So every tool we have in our toolbox to compensate for the lack of a user’s manual to Ascension is beneficial.
A great strain is being put on our relationships because we evolve at different rates, specialize in different areas, drift apart or even choose different directions.
I’d like to offer one possible tool from growth workshops for people in relationship.
In most relationships, if we’re given feedback or asked to change an aspect of our behavior that’s proving to be objectionable, we often react defensively, leading to resistance, resentment and revenge. Relationships fall apart when one person cannot hear feedback.
The tool I’d like to recommend that we all add to our toolbox, if you’ll allow me, is to try the feedback on, test it out, and see if it fits. If it fits, own it.
This one simple procedure can cut through a lot of conflict in relationship.
Most people on the awareness path love to try things on. Anything to stimulate awareness is welcome. The more we know about ourselves, the better life becomes. We experience release from our old baggage. Love can more easily arise from our hearts. Life is better in many ways.
Owning what fits reflects our commitment to personal responsibility. The rising energies are whispering to us that becoming personally responsible, owning our stuff, seeing if the feedback fits are all going to have inordinate value in the rapidly-altering times ahead.
They’re also causing trouble for us in our personal lives and space. I’ll tell you one area of my life that I’m having trouble with. I’m in bliss many days (haven’t been for some days now) and it usually starts after 9 a.m. and subsides around dinner time. Some days I’m not in bliss at all.
My understanding, the reach of my mind, and good access to my heart all go way, way down when I’m not in bliss. If I’m not in bliss for more than a day, it’s as if the love of my life took off: I’m forlorn.
Moreover my writing is technically adequate when I’m not in bliss but not inspired.
So I’m wrestling with leading a double life, so to speak. And preferring one side of my life to the other and yet the other (no bliss) appears to be my default for now. So I live in a lot of disappointment and dismay these days, whenever bliss leaves me. (I know. I shouldn’t, right? But I am.)
I don’t imagine bliss will be a permanent state until after Sahaja Samadhi, what terrestrial sages called moksha or liberation. That’s the culmination of Ascension. The permanence of bliss could occur before that, say, when we hit Brahmajnana, a lesser level of enlightenment, sometime next year. Until then it’s get it and lose it, get it and lose it. But losing such a wonderful state on a daily basis is hard.
This Ascension scenario is not all wine and roses. There are a lot of things we want that don’t work out. People growing at different rates or in different domains are sometimes nowadays pulling apart.
Through it all, we’re making notes on the journey as we go. Up, down, in, out on the road to Heaven on Earth.
By our ethnographic sharing, we’re creating a record of Ascension for those who come after, a user’s manual collectively written. Come after? Well, not just here on Earth but in other star systems as well. Believe it.
We’re all involved in wayshowing and pathfinding in the raw. The first cut. History on the fly. Down in the trenches with turmoil swirling around us and constant change, writing a user’s manual to Ascension for Earth beings and star beings of the future.
