Kathleen and I notice that we’re meeting with two kinds of groups.
One is building the foundation and superstructure for the work of constructing Nova Earth.
You can think of this group as raising a building. Let me call it a vertical group in light of that image.
A second group is expanding our knowledge and experience in a definite area, field, or domain of knowledge.
Wally Johnston’s parapsychology group in Portland and Terry Andrews’ women’s group on psychic development in Cannon Beach are examples of the second kind of group. Let’s call it a horizontal group.
Both are part of the work of Ascension and both do different work. The first group includes foundations that finance what will be occurring, organizations that chronicle and promote what’s transpiring, etc.
The second group includes groups that raise awareness of the new truths and the “new normal.” For instance, Terry in her group is practising higher-dimensional ways of running a group. The group itself is emerging from old-paradigm into new-paradigm ways.
This second type includes groups that expand the meaning of humanness or penetrate deeper and deeper into what it means to be human.
We discussed the stages of group development and I saw that the old ways one would talk about a group’s development don’t apply to a group such as Terry was running.
We discussed relationships and realized that we could no longer talk about them either in the cut-and-dried, narrow ways that we might have even a decade ago.
Two women at a smaller gathering at Liz’s house the night before were discussing education and again what they were discussing was very far ahead of what would be regarded as the norms in education today. The children they taught learn differently and are much more gifted than past generations.
We know why that is. Starseeds are coming in, destined to lead the rest of us. Some already are, like Stephen in Santa Cruz and Miguel in San Diego.
Several women had children who were ahead of the curve and took over the job of leading the family much earlier in life than children do.
Nancy and Liz had radical ideas on education – radical, that is, in terms of the school system as I knew it. If a person read aloud when she read in her classes, Nancy allowed that.
Other teachers (such as those who taught Liz) criticized the student who read aloud when reading as being disruptive.
If a person could not hear or read by sitting still, Nancy allowed them to walk around the room, realizing that they could only learn this way.
If a student couldn’t look at you because doing so caused sensory overload, Nancy allowed that too. She looked at how they learned, and, where it diverged from the norm, she allowed it.
I tried to persuade Nancy to put down on paper the way she taught. I hope I succeeded.
And I tried to persuade Terry to post a series of links on community-development projects and practices. And to write up some of what she’s discovering as she teaches Fifth-Dimensional ways of being.
Back to the group. One woman – Doreen – lives a great deal of her life in the Fifth Dimension, is propelled there when she channels and doesn’t want to come back. She sidled over to me during the meeting and delivered a message that I was to relax whatever it was that was holding me back. I replied that long ago I used to feel foolish because my ways of being were not well received. She said that “they” said I needed to drop that now.
Often Doreen burst out laughing during the meeting over something the higher dimensionals (usually Michael) said to her and would need to be coaxed to tell us the joke, after which we howled too.
One of the most notable quotes I heard during this visit was a propos of the humor we enjoyed. Terry said that laughter was carbonated holiness. We fizzed and effervesced all day. I never thought of that as a form of praying together but, hey, maybe it is.
The people who actually set down their ideas and send them in will join Cait McWhir who’s looking at the profiles of some of the lightworkers we’ve met on our journey.
They’ll join several other lightworkers in San Francisco particularly who just may chronicle their revolutionary work in quantum mechanics, workable relationships, taking back the streets with music to end neighborhood shootings, and so on.
Some of us have the idea that a mission, to be a mission, has to be serious, hard, “work,” intense, tangibly productive, etc. Usually, when we look from that filter, we come up with a mission that we don’t really enjoy or like.
But the Divine Mother has said that our mission should never be something we hate or don’t enjoy. It should be something we love and are passionate about.
Once people in the group left aside the things they felt they ought to do and really started looking at what they were passionate about, people started to become excited at the thought of taking up a mission in the building of Nova Earth.
What we feel passionate about is what we cannot suppress thinking about if we tried, the nagging thoughts that return and return and beckon us only to have us shelve them over and over again as being pie in the sky, impractical, unreachable.
Sometimes we feel so obligated by the duties of raising children and working and looking after household duties that by the time the kids leave home, we don’t want to be committed to anything ever again. And we think that the idea of remaining rigorously uncommitted removes us from the people that have a mission.
We overlook the fact that our very mission may be in the area of freedom or in the area of planning and ensuring that life never again becomes the drudgery it’s been for some people, that life now needs to be planned better so that work hours are less, the community provides for the relief of parents who face overwork, and labor-saving inventions are introduced (the replicator is an example) that relieve people of so much of the work associated with merely existing.
What were some of the missions people wanted to embark on? Working to eradicate human trafficking, teaching cooking that was not only tasty but nutritious, teaching new ways of educating, etc.
I was joined by one other man – Ron – who was new to spiritual circles. And he asked someone to give an introduction to spirituality and perhaps I can end with what I said when it came to my turn.
Life is organized such that each of us is tasked with knowing who we are. And when we find the full and absolute truth of who we are, we find that we are God.
And when we discover that truth, the God that we are experiences the God that is. We could characterize that moment as God meeting God. For that moment of meeting, which is pleasurable to God, was all of life created.
What does “spiritual” actually mean? Part of what I replied was that the moment life becomes spiritual is the moment that we turn from getting and spending, as Wordsworth put it, to plumbing the nature of the reality that exists inside ourselves. The moment we begin to go inward, we begin the spiritual journey.
The Kingdom of Heaven lies within. The universe is to be found within. The treasure buried in a field, the pearl of great price, the mustard seed that grows into a great tree lies within. And so the spiritual journey is an inward or interior journey.
What was Ascension? Light is being sent to us from great beings, higher-dimensional civilizations and Mother/Father God Themselves and that light is raising our vibrations. Soon we’ll be living permanently in a higher dimension than this.
The light or love that’s reaching us is raising our vibrations. The cleansing we’ve all been doing is also raising our vibrations.
When Ascension occurs is not related to considerations of time. It’s related to considerations of frequency. When humanity reaches the right frequency, Ascension in its fulness will occur.
We’ve just passed through a long period of cleansing ourselves of our vasanas, core issues and false grids. The Tsunami of Love was part of that. We’re now in a period characterized by a pause, inertia, or stillness, such as we’d experience at the stillpoint.
Anyone who practices transmutation (and this I’ve learned from Kathleen) draws the energy to be transmuted in, holds it in the stillness of the heart and then exhales it out into the world as love. (I hope I got that right, Kathleen.)
Is that to be our fate after the pause? To emanate the higher-dimensional vibrations that we’ve assimilated out into the world? Is that the next phase for lightworkers?
Another way of talking about the next phase is to say that the phase of cleansing being apparently completed, or at least tapering off, the next phase may be revealing the divine female and the divine male that we always, already are and that was hidden.
The first phase was removing the overburden that obscured and hid the divine female and male. The second phase allows the divine female and male to shine forth. That for me is the phase we’re in right now. Without achieving that phase, I don’t think we’d be able to make our cooperative ventures work as we build Nova Earth.
So that was my own introduction to what’s occurring in the world at the present time and what “spiritual” means.
Tomorrow we go through Longview to Onalaska. Day after that to Seattle.
