(Concluded from Part 2.)
The Longing for Liberation as the Desire to Love and Be Loved
In more recent years, the Company of Heaven (CoH) appears to have shifted the emphasis away from speaking about a longing for God or even a longing for liberation, to speaking about a longing for love.
Since God is love, it can only mean the same thing. They could have talked about a longing for bliss or light or consciousness; it would also have meant the same.
I think the emphasis on love will make it easier for the different people of the planet to come together on a subject as potentially divisive as what drives us on as individuals and species.
Let’s look at what the CoH has been saying.
Archangel Michael through Linda Dillon said that the one drive that was embedded in us was the desire to love and be loved.
“You have one drive that is embedded within you, within your core, and that is to be loved, to love, and to be the essence of love. And in that drive is, ‘I will do anything to keep me on my journey back home, because what I am really afraid of is the separation.’” (1)
This is a wholesale reinterpretation of the classical, terrestrial perspective. No longing for God, no longing for liberation, and instead a longing to love and be loved.
Then AAM links up that longing for love to our overall journey from God to God, portraying the longing as a desire to be finished with separation. Love, partnership, union, an end to separation. This is the Divine Plan not only for this Ascension generation, but for all generations.
He has achieved two kinds of work here: He’s reinterpreted traditional spirituality for the use of today’s lightworkers, who are builders, constructors of Nova Earth.
And he’s linked up this lightworker model with the overall plan of Mother/Father God. That plan is to have individual sparks go out from God into the world – which is a school in Self-Realization – and then return to the Source again, God meeting God in moments of our enlightenment.
Loving and being loved is the most effective means I know of to be rid of separation. But of course I’m speaking of what Jesus would call real love and what others might call universal or unconditional love.
Jesus speaks about “the weak faint image of real Love that is all that you can experience as a human” – I call that weak faint image “ordinary love.” (2)
On another occasion he says:
“Truly, although you do need to care for it sensibly, your human body is a distraction because you are so aware of it to the exclusion of what is real Love, whose flame burns always within you maintaining your eternal existence.” (3)
I call that “real love,” transformative love. We blossom in it and it transforms any unwanted condition rather than being suppressed by it.
Here’s Jesus, casting the longing for liberation as one for love:
“On this planet, in this universe, throughout the creation of the Mother/Father One, what people call instinct or drive is truly … there is only one drive – oh, there is a drive to maintain human life, to eat, to sleep, but that is not what I am talking about. The drive [I am talking about] is to love; the yearning is to experience love, to give love, to receive love, and to know not only that you are loved and lovable, but that you are the essence of love.
“And you are at a point, my sweet family, where that knowing is upon you.” (4)
If this knowing is upon us, how fortunate we are. If it is not, it will be, sooner or later.
So now we have Archangel Michael and Jesus – two compelling figures in our world’s spiritual tradition – shifting the focus away from God and freedom, to loving and being loved.
Everyone serves the Divine Mother. What does she say on the subject?
She called the desire to love and be loved a part of our physical and spiritual DNA:
“It is part, not only of what we would call your spiritual DNA. It is also part of your physical DNA, this desire for love and nurturing to both give and to receive.” (5)
St. Germaine amplified what she said recently:
“Part of your existence, part of how you journey back to the One, is through this cycle of being in form – through this journey of life as you would consider it. The desire, innate and conscious, to be in that alignment, to be on that expressway back to the heart of One [i.e., the longing for love], is within you. It is part and parcel of who you are – what you can think of as not only your spiritual DNA, but your literal DNA.
“And, I want you to consider what I am saying. Your literal, biological, elevated, transmuted, lightbody, lightworker, loveholder self is [imbued] with this desire to align, to connect, to journey back to the love. When you acknowledge, connect, anchor, implement and begin to live that desire, then you are truly on your way.” (6)
As long as we fight this desire or try to fill it with yachts and cars, it struggles simply to be known and allowed. Once we know and allow it, it really accelerates, and so do we, he says.
The CoH sources speaking through Linda are not the only ones making this point about the longing being deep within our structure. Here’s SaLuSa through Mike Quinsey making it:
“All souls have DNA genes that give them the impetus to seek the truth, and that will inevitably cause them to continue searching for it.” (7)
So the longing for love – or for God or for Truth – is in our physical genes, the spiritual genes of our higher bodies, and our soul. That’s how deep the longing goes.
What the CoH has said recently offers a total model of how to respond to the longing for liberation in the world, not for monks and mystics, but for lightworkers and loveholders
We’re a collectivity of primarily urban folk, technologically trained, mostly karma yogis or followers of the path of selfless service.
No longer are we forest monks in lone meditation on non-dual Reality. No longer is the focus on liberation from all worldly desires and ignorance (“I want”). Instead it’s a focus on loving and being loved, on giving and receiving, on expressing love in service and welcoming being served.
That real, universal, or transformative love will fill the yawning chasm.
It’s loving each other that will unite the world. That’s where the grace-filled energies are taking us.
I’ll be continuing to explore the longing for love and liberation, but in smaller, bite-size pieces, as fits the time available.
