I remember listening to Ashira recently trying to explain an inner, formless state to us who are used to thinking in terms of solid objects.
And I remembered all the times I’ve been at a loss for words to describe inner states.
How do you describe drowning in the Ocean of Love? Nothing drowns. It wasn’t an ocean. All words can only be metaphorical. Like all metaphors, they obscure as much as they clarify.
Or how do you describe experiencing “mastery” and “abundance” as contexts? This actually happened to me so let me look at it for a moment.
Archangel Michael referred to the two experiences:
AAM: When I have said ‘spiritual currency,’ you’ve had a glimpse of this in the knowing of mastery and abundance and so you know it isn’t about money. It is about spiritual currency. And I say to you, “congratulations.” (1)
I believe I asked to have an experience of “mastery” as a context. When I did, however, I found myself back at the same place I reached when the inner tsunami of “love” flowed.
As to abundance, I invoked the universal law one afternoon and asked for abundance.
I forgot to ask for physical abundance and so I received the experience of abundance, abundance as a context, a whole, abundance as a criterion that can include everyone and everything.
Viewing abundance from this perspective was like walking through a door and – I can only say – I again entered a higher dimension.
All my problems left me. Joy filled me. I had an experience of the abundance of the inner world and it left me speechless.
I bet all roads lead to the same higher-dimensional space – whether we scale the mountain through love, peace, mastery, or (service through) abundance.
Yes, I do know that it isn’t about money. It’s about achieving – on a full and eternal basis – entry into that higher space where abundance means so much more than it does here. Compared to that, money is mere paper.
Here, we’re like pack animals, laboring to keep up and satisfied – metaphorically – with a few handfuls of grain.
There, we’re set free in every respect. And what is released when we’re free is the love, the joy, the bliss at the heart of us.
I can’t describe these things. The states have to be experienced for one’s self. And then you won’t be able to describe them either. But we will smile together.
Before I leave, I’d like to add that you may think I meditate every day or follow some other spiritual practice. In fact, my only spiritual practice is karma yoga or service (seva). I asked Michael if service was enough:
Steve: Is my karma yoga, my service, enough of a spiritual practice or should I be doing other things as well? …
Archangel Michael: The karma yoga is a very good practice. It is absolutely perfect for you. (2)
I serve the Mother by researching and writing, creating distinctions designed to enhance clarity and keep everyone’s spirits up as we march along through this longest of campaigns.
The spiritual experiences are coming even though I don’t meditate, chant, or anything else.
I know this service is valuable to the Mother. (2) So I’m saying: I don’t think it’s necessary at this time for people to be looking at themselves and saying. “I don’t meditate. I don’t do this or that.” This is not the lifetime when very many of us are expected to meditate in caves. This is a lifetime of active service.
There’ll be a need for commentators, teachers, and interpreters at all levels. Who is it that knows the full story? Lightworkers.
We’ll need to build the new and who is it among people who know the Plan? Lightworkers.
That’ll be our time to serve at all levels of leadership.
Please be reassured on the matter of Ascension. You ascended in other lifetimes or you wouldn’t be here.
Here are the Arcturians through Sue Lie explaining our situation:
“Why did you come to Gaia’s greatly wounded planet? You volunteered to take your current earth vessel so that YOU can assist—not with personal ascension, as you are already ascended—but with Planetary Ascension.” (3)
If not, we wouldn’t be here, awake, aware, and a lightworker.
There’s no need to struggle. We’ll be back in our higher-dimensional selves again (if we so choose) once we complete this assignment. No, not on a stretcher this time, but to a rousing celebration and a welcome in person.
So consider this a warm and open invitation to serve. Do it in a field you love, doing things you love, and watch work disappear.

(2) AAM: You are doing the biggest thing that not only I but the universal Mother, the sacred being that we both serve, wishes you to do, and that is to write, to communicate. And in the writing is infused the anchoring and the bringing of peace to the planet, the creation of Nova Gaia. (AAM, Feb. 7, 2013.)
