What’s the truth about ascension for me? The truth is: We don’t really know when it’ll happen. We don’t really know how.
But to worry about those two things keeps us focused on the future.
Maybe it’s just how busy it’s been lately but I have less and less time for the future and more and more time for the here and now.
I don’t really care when or how ascension will happen.
But I do care to notice the changes in me – my body is getting a little younger, I feel younger, love flows from my heart.
We have some hints from the other side of “bumps” and “ignitions” and other apparently-collective events coming up – but who knows when? The overall journey has to be slow. If not, we’d burn out the body.
There was a story about one of a guru’s disciples who attained a high level of samadhi (trance state). He lived just long enough to kiss the guru’s feet and then died.
Ramakrishna says that, if we achieve a high level of enlightenment (probably Sahaja or what Ramakrishna called “vijnana”), our bodies last only twenty-one days.
But this generation isn’t meant to experience ascension and die. We’re meant to take our physical bodies with us. That being the case, we have to stay within their tolerance limits.
Moreover, it isn’t just lightworkers who’ll ascend. It’s the whole planet. If we went too fast, the changes they perceived in themselves might drive some people mad with anxiety.
I feel confident in leaving ascension in the hands of the Company of Heaven, which includes us lightworkers. We play our part too.
There are things that create space and things that close it down. Worrying about the future closes it down.
