“An entire, strong network of lies and half-truths has been fashioned around your society, and those who’ve suppressed your history will be held accountable for what they’ve done as humanity is subsequently informed of what they’ve suppressed.” (“The Hathors: Karmic Acceleration, Exposure of Tyranny and Understanding Channels,” channeled by Wes Annac, August 30, 2013 at http://aquariusparadigm.com.)
Ascension constitutes a full-heart opening and equates with a level of enlightenment known as sahaja samadhi. …
Sahaja and Ascension (they are the same) results in an end to the need to be reborn into the realm of physical matter. It’s what Jesus was speaking of when he said they shall be made a pillar in the temple and go no more out. He meant go no more out into the material world by being physically born. …
Once anchored in the Fifth Dimension and having attained sahaja samadhi, we’ve achieved what all the learning is about – liberation from birth and death. We need never be born again into matter and we need never die again.
Of course, all of us are immortal from the get-go. When we die, we don’t die. We simply shed this encumbrance we call a body.
But past the Fifth Dimension, we no longer have to be born into a physical body. If we tire of this one, we create a new look for ourselves. (“Quick Review of Ascension and Sahaja Samadhi,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/into-the-golden-age-of-gaia/the-golden-age-of-gaia/quick-review-of-ascension-and-sahaja-samadhi/.)
Steve Beckow: Some say that ascension is gradual; some say ascension is sudden. Ascension is both gradual and sudden, is it not? Can you talk a little bit more about the sudden aspect of ascension, please?
Divine Mother: It is that feeling — well, it is more than a feeling; it is knowing; it is ignition (4) — it is that feeling that you have been switched on to a different frequency, and it happens suddenly. You may be working at it, working at it, working at it, and then you wake up one morning, and you see, perceive, feel, know different.
You may come out of a meditation, and most of you are surprised! You think, “I’m seeing colors,” or creatures, or light, “in a different way. You know, yesterday, I didn’t think I could do this, and today I think I can do this task and 20 more.”
You are embracing your multidimensional talents yourself. So in that way it is very abrupt. It is the feeling, “I am not the same person as I was yesterday.” You may not know how or why, but it is very clear and very line-in-the-sand.
SB: But that is not Sahaja Samadhi, Mother, is it? When does Sahaja Samadhi occur?
DM: It occurs with a more gradual awakening and lifting up. So there is the abrupt “I am not the same,” then there is the working and the anchoring, the integration, then there is another jump, and another jump, and another jump. And you don’t know it — well, some of you do — but you are leap-frogging. And then you will be there.
SB: Now, are those jumps equivalent to sub-planes?
DM: You can think of it as sub-planes, dimensional sub-planes, yes.
But also know this, what I say to you: Do not be restrictive.
Some of you feel like baby frogs one day and you jump from one sub-plane to the next, to the next. And then the next day you are a panther, and you are leaping 10 levels. So don’t pre-determine.
Allow your heart consciousness, your knowing, to simply guide you. Yes, Ascension is about taking risks and trusting what you know to be true, and then arriving, and saying, “Yep. I knew it. Here I am.” And I am right there with you. I am catching you. (“The Divine Mother: We are Creating a New Species of Humans (Repost),” September 15, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/09/15/the-divine-mother-we-are-creating-a-new-species-of-humans-repost-2/.)
“In terms of the collective, there will also come a point of what you will think of as snap. Where the tidal wave – no, the Earth will not shift because everybody moves to one side of it – but it will be as if the energy has shifted so significantly with the totality, or enough of the totality, that the change is unmistakable, so that you will look at each other and say, ‘We have done it.’
“We are not talking about some distant future.” (“It Is a New Day: Sanat Kumara on Pope Francis, the Process of Ascension, the Earth’s Place in Ascension, Etc.,” March 13, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/03/it-is-a-new-day-sanat-kumara-on-pope-francis-the-process-of-ascension-the-earths-place-in-ascension-etc/)
Steve Beckow: You did say about two years ago that ascension would be a snap.
Arhangel Michael: Yes. It is a snap and a moment in time when someone truly gets to that point in the car wash where they are clean and bright and shiny. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, May 9, 2014.)
“Now, for some of you it is immediate because you have done all your work, all your preparations, and you have grounded deep in the heart of One and deep in the heart of Gaia.
“For others, it will be more like an awakening and thinking, “Oh, my gosh, everything has changed! I’d better start adjusting.” So it will be more of a slower process rather than a snap, which we have referred to many, many times, again, through the end of the year, as you begin the new.
“So are you asking, on this day, are the energies there and sent to Earth for everyone to awaken? And I say, yes. Now, I am telling you, do not focus on a time. Focus on a day. But for some of you, it will be more slow because of where you are emotionally, spiritually, physically. For some of you it will be rapid.” (“Archangel Michael: Let Us Ease This Flight to Freedom,” Dec. 19, 2012, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/12/19/archangel-michael-let-us-ease-this-flight-to-freedom/.)
These are the conventionally-described levels of enlightenment up to and including the Fifth Dimension.
(1) The Mother has promised us a mass heart opening. This experience occurs when the kundalini reaches the fourth chakra.
Buddhism calls such a first-enlightenment experience, “stream-entering.” Hindus call it “spiritual awakening.” It fills one with hope and confidence.
(2) Next in classical enlightenment schemes is a sixth-chakra enlightenment experience which westerners call “cosmic consciousness.”’
Hindus call it savikalpa samadhi (samadhi with form). I don’t know what Buddhists call it. I have not had this experience this lifetime and so I cannot comment on it.
(3) The first transcendental enlightenment experience occurs when the kundalini reaches the seventh chakra.
Buddhists call it becoming an arahant. Hindus call it Brahmajnana (God-Realization) and nirvikalpa samadhi (samadhi without form; i.e., transcendental samadhi).
(4) The arahant becomes a buddha, the Brahmajnani becomes a jivan-mukta (liberated while alive) when the energy moves farther and permanently and fully opens the heart.
Not the heart chakra, but the heart. The hridayam or heart aperture opens as it did in the earlier heart opening but now remains open.
The resulting torrent of love incinerates the vasanas or core issues. In the earlier heart opening, which I imagine is not as strong as Sahaja, the vasanas were held at bay for the length of the experience. But they were not eliminated. Now they are.
This latter state is what classical scholars would call mukti or liberation. It’s what completes our Ascension experience.
(5) If we end up in the Fifth Dimension, that’s definitely not the final stop in our much broader Ascension. (“Enlightenment in Context,” August 31, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/08/31/enlightenment-in-context/.)
“[The] Heart is the seat of Jnanam as well as of the granthi (knot of ignorance). It is represented in the physical body by a hole smaller than the smallest pin-point, which is always shut. When the mind drops down in Kevalya Nirvikalpa [Samadhi], it opens but shuts again after it. When Sahaja [Nirvikalpa Samadhi] is attained it opens for good.” (Ramana Maharshi in S.S. Cohen, Guru Ramana. Memories and Notes. 6th edition. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1993, 96.)
“Sahaja Nirvikalpa [Samadhi] is permanent and in it lies liberation from rebirths.” (Ibid., 88.)
“In kevalya nirvikalpa samadhi one is not free from vasanas and does not, therefore, attain mukti. Only after the samskaras have been destroyed [in Sahaja] can one attain salvation. … Even though one practices kevala nirvikalpa samadhi for years together, if one has not rooted out the vasanas, he will not attain salvation.” (Sri Ramana Maharshi in Ramananda Swarnagiri, Crumbs from His Table. http://www.ramana-maharshi.org. Downloaded 10 September 2005, n.p.)
“Sahaja is the original state so that sadhana amounts to the removal of obstacles for the realization of this abiding truth.” (Ramana Maharshi in Paul Brunton and Munagala Venkataramaiah. Conscious Immortality. Conversations with Sri Ramana Maharshi. Rev. ed. 1996, n.p.)
“Many people consider that [Kevalya] Nirvikalpa Samadhi [Brahmajnana] is final, and once having attained it seek to progress no further.
“Sahaja Samadhi is the final and most blessed state, the goal of all Yogis. In this state the individual has become completely merged in the Supreme Self.
“His identity which became lost in Nirvikalpa Samadhi has become enlarged and is now the Supreme Self and knows itself as such.
“Trances are no longer necessary, a person can still carry on with the ordinary day to day business but he no longer identifies himself with the activities, but watches them like a dreamer watching a dream.
“There is no more to do, and no more to be attained. This is the Supreme State of Absolute Bliss. But in the words of Bhagavan, it is the SELF and it can be realized by one and all by Self-enquiry.” (Sadhu Arunachala [A.W. Chadwick], A Sadhu’s Reminiscences of Ramana Maharshi. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1961, 47-8.)
Steve Beckow: The last question is I’m trying to understand what level of enlightenment Ascension corresponds to. And I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called — and I’ll make this clear to readers — Sahaja Samadhi. Am I correct?
Divine Mother: Yes, it is beyond what you think of with your seven chakras. It is beyond, because what you are doing with the chakra system, even with the thirteen – we have emerged from the Third-dimensional realm, which is that reference point for the chakra system, into the new. So yes, you are correct, in this question and in this statement.
Steve Beckow: you said that the experience, the enlightenment experience is beyond the 13 chakras, but you didn’t actually say yes or no to my question of whether this experience corresponds to sahaja samadhi.
Divine Mother: Yes.
SB: It does?
DM: That is correct.
SB: Oh, eureka! Thank you, Mother! I’m so happy to have that confirmed. (“The Divine Mother: Come to Me as I Come to You – Part 1/2,” Oct. 17, 2012 through Linda Dillon, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/10/the-divine-mother-come-to-me-as-i-come-to-you-part-12/.)
Balance as used by the Company of Heaven means cleansing oneself of one’s core issues or vasanas so that one does not stray from the midpoint, centerpoint or balance point, which is synonymous with the heart, and migrate to the extremes of emotions.
Brahmajnana [pronounced BRA-muh-YAW-nuh] is the stage of enlightenment attained when the kundalini energy reaches the seventh chakra. It’s the first experience of the Transcendental or Formless. Synonyms for it are God-Realization and Kevalya Nirivikalpa Samadhi. It is not the endpoint of Ascension; Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi (cf.) is.
“In the abyss of this darkness in which the loving spirit has died to itself, God’s revelation and eternal life have their origin, for in this darkness an incomprehensible light is born and shines forth; this is the Son of God, in whom a person becomes able to see and to contemplate eternal life.” (John Ruusbroec in James A. Wiseman, John Ruusbroec. The Spiritual Espousals and Other Works. New York, etc.: Paulist Press, 1985, 147.)
“It is Christ, the light of truth, who says, ‘See,’ and it is through him that we are able to see, for he is the light of the Father, without which there is no light in heaven or on earth.” (John Ruusbroec in James A. Wiseman, John Ruusbroec. The Spiritual Espousals and Other Works. New York, etc.: Paulist Press, 1985, 74.)
“The beloved members of the Pleiades, Sirius, Arcturus, Andromeda and Antares, as well as the Brotherhood and Sisterhood of Light, the Angelic Kingdom, the Ascended Masters, and the awakened members of Earth have all joined together to assist Gaia in the fulfillment of Her transformation.” (The Arcturians in Arcturian Ascension, Sept. 13, 2008, at http://tinyurl.com/2vllxtr.)
“I have chosen and created and birthed you into form. That is the Plan at work and I have done this, we have done this, with that spark of divinity so that you would be divine in form.
“And what that means in very practical terms is the assumption of your divine authority to be in charge of your life, of your thoughts, of your feelings, of your actions, of your behaviors, of your steps, of your environments, all the way out to the edges of the universe, throughout all times and dimensions. …
“If you do not take authority over your existence – think in practical terms, this life – then what happens? You are adrift. You are in fact that row boat in the middle of the ocean being twisted and turned every which way. Divine authority means choosing – yes, with … your divine authority of free will – to direct how, where, when, [and] if you choose to proceed. “ (“Repost: The Divine Mother: Assume Your Divine Authority,” March 11, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/03/11/repost-the-divine-mother-assume-your-divine-authority/)
The Face of the One in the material domain is the Divine Mother. The Mother and the Father are one. But the Father in his native state does not move and makes no sound. The Mother is the Voice in the Silence, the Voice of One crying in the wilderness.
When silent we call God, the Father; when sonic, we call God, the Mother. When still, we call him/her (God has no gender) the Father; when active, we call him/her the Mother.
It’s the Mother whose creative sound (Aum/Amen) calls all matter into being, holds it for a while, and then transforms it. (“Quick Review of Ascension and Sahaja Samadhi,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/into-the-golden-age-of-gaia/the-golden-age-of-gaia/quick-review-of-ascension-and-sahaja-samadhi/.)
“I am not simply your Mother ordering you about, telling you what to do! Consider with me for a moment what the Mother Energy is. There are reasons why you have this paradigm, this archetype.
“It is the Mother Nurturer, it is the Mother Disciplinarian, it is the Mother who ‘course corrects’ you as you grow. It is the Mother who sees you grow into the truth of fulfillment, the evolution of your maturity on every level. …
“I am not a thundering punishing Mother – nor is the Father for that matter!” (“Transcript ~ The Divine Mother: New Year’s Message 2017,” December 29, 2016, through Linda Dillon, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2016/12/31/new-years-message-2017/.)
“Yes, I come as Mother, as Mother of Hope, as Mother of change, Mother of serenity, Mother of laughter, Mother of joy, Mother of One.
“The distinctions that you make between myself, Universal Mother, and Divine Mother are human distinctions and they are created so that you will have a multitude of ways in which to come to know me so that I may guide you and that I may guide you back home.
“No matter how far you may wander or what the journey entails, should you choose, in any instance, in any reality, to call upon me, to know me, to allow me to embrace you, I am there.
“So, I have a million faces and as many names and I am still One. “(“Mother Mary Discusses the Divine Quality of Hope – the Foundation, the Bedrock of Human Existence,” February 21, 2013, at http://counciloflove.com/2013/02/mother-mary-discusses-the-divine-quality-of-hope-the-foundation-the-bedrock-of-human-existance/. )
Divine Mother: I am the Mother — mother of all, giver of life, giver of love. It is my joy to be speaking with you. And I want to explain, for there are many thoughts and conceptions about who I am, about what I am. There are many things that we will talk about and discuss this day. The most important is love. The most important is the transition that each of you, my beloved ones, goes through right now, as you receive love, [of energy?], of flow, from my heart and from the heart of the Father, from One.
I am known by many names, and that is appropriate. And I am thought of in many forms — as Mary, as Shakti, as Mare, which is very close because it is the word of ocean in your world and language. It represents the movement and the giver of life, the creator of life, of love, of form, of substance, of essence.
It is so that in many cultures and in many ways I am worshipped, I am adored, I am venerated. But, my beloved children, children that I have birthed from my being, from my essence — which is far beyond what you can imagine — I also wish to be thought of and felt as approached, approachable, present, ever present, available, accessible, and with you.
There is no limitation, and there most certainly is no separation, throughout this universe and on your planet, that I may be with each one of you in the way that is appropriate in what you think of as your now, in the form and by the name that you call me. The key is, I will answer always. …
Steve Beckow: Mother, you’re also known as the Word of God, and Aum, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, the noise of many waters. Solomon called you Wisdom. Why is the knowledge of you “more precious than rubies”?
DM: Well, first of all, it is the way that human beings can express how they know me. But knowledge of me is more precious than anything, because I am your connection [to the Father]. When you are with me in the fullness of union, as full as you can know it while in form, then you are connected, and in, not only my creation, but my wisdom and my love. And in that is all. It is all you need to know or can know or will know.
It brings you beyond the human experience. And, yes, I am also the voice crying in the wilderness. But I want to address that, because it is not so much anymore, for many are heeding my voice. Many are heeding my pleas. Many are returning to the core of why you exist. So, this expression, and the many expressions, are to emphasize the need — if such a thing exists, and I know it does — in each of your hearts. There are times when you feel the need, and it expresses what is first, what is always, what is primordial, what is primary in your journey.
When you do not join with me, when you do not acknowledge me or turn to me, you are denying yourself, you are denying who you are and why you are. My gifts are beyond any human or Earthly measure. They are beyond any realm that you are experiencing within the human dimensionality. But that does not mean that you cannot come to know me and to join with me. No, it is not a contradiction, it is a request.
SB: How are you known, Mother?
DM: I am known as all. I am known as love. I am known as love, as dynamic action, as movement, as constant change, as fulfillment. Sometimes you tend to think of me as the Holy Spirit, but there is more to me than that, and there is a shade of the Father within there as well. But I am known by the movement within you and the movement within your Earth, within all things, within all universes.
I am a birther and a giver. I am the unchanging movement, and the constantly changing movement. I am the rhythm. I am the flow. I am Mother.
And on your planet that I have birthed, the pattern of Mother I have gifted you, that you are surrounded with the reminder of my presence, with the imprint of my presence and my wisdom, that you will know fulfillment. Yes, we have also imprinted free will.
So, the actions of all mothers are not always of wisdom and love. But that does not change the knowing and the wisdom, within each of you, of what is intended to be. And when you return to that, when you stay within that, it will lift you to the bliss, to the One.
SB: Mother, you say you are movement, and that implies that the Father is stillness. But you are the Father as well as the Mother. Can you, if it’s at all possible, explain to our listeners what the difference is between your aspect as the Mother and your aspect as the Father?
DM: Yes, because, as I have said, I am All, I am One. And, if you will, as you will be speaking with the Father, (1) of course there will be more information. But also know, I am All. So, I give you human ways, not in a way of speaking down — quite the contrary — but in ways that you may understand. When I am Father, there is a stillness, complete.
This is something that the human race is simply learning now. It is the union and conjoining of stillness with movement, and how that is the balance of everything. When I am in the Father, I do not require that movement, for that is not the way that I have created the Father. (2) So, they are the two halves of the whole. Many who listen to this will be a little confused, and yet, my children, there is no need for confusion.
Let me explain further. In many traditions, I am considered the Mother of All; in some traditions, the Mother of God, Source, One. Now, what does this mean? It means exactly what it says: I am the beginning and I am the completion, the end. (3) Each of you — and I have strongly encouraged you not only to discover but to find the masculine aspect of yourself, and the feminine, the stillness and the movement — you cannot have creation of any kind without both.
Creation comes from movement, and it is movement into form, into energy, into substance, into essence — however you conceive of that. But do not negate the role of the Father, of the masculine, because in that is the stillness of the moment of creation, what you think of. So it is the combination.
You say, “Mother, how can you do both?” It is who I am. And you, each one of you, are embedded with these qualities directly from my being, from my heart. I give you human ways rather than just sheer energy, which I also transmit to you now, but not only to embrace me, but to understand, because you are in your process also of fulfillment. It is part of your progression. It is already created.
I invite you to stay in the Now but also suggest to you and tell you, it is already done.
Does this answer your question, child?
SB: Well, I have to ask you one further question, Mother, to make sure that I understand completely what you just said. And I regret that I have to use a little bit of jargon, but I’ll explain to my readers later.
When you use the word “the Father,” are you referring to the conditioned Brahman? And if you are, could you tell us about your aspect as the transcendental Absolute? (4)
DM: Many who listen do not understand this or these terms.
SB: Yes, I realize that.
DM: And part of my desire is to make very clear, that people do understand. So, ensure, beloved, that you do make these terms very clear for your readers and listeners.
SB: I will. But if you would just confirm for me that you are speaking about the conditioned Brahman rather than the Transcendental Absolute, I can do the rest.
DM: Yes, that is exactly what I am speaking of.
(1) The InLight radio team had earlier discussed speaking with the Universal Mother for Mother’s Day and the Holy Father (what I have called elsewhere the conditioned Brahman) for Father’s Day. The conditioned Brahman refers to God in form, in the material world of the Mother, in the phenomenal domain. God can be formless or in form. The Mother would have to be referring to the Father in form here because the formless Father cannot speak.’ The Father in form would indeed be her creation; she has created everything in form. For more on this see “The Father and the Father … by the Mother,” May 7, 2012, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/05/the-father-and-the-father-by-the-mother/.)
(2) The Father is uncreated and created the Mother. But insofar as the Father has a “created” aspect, the Mother has created that aspect. In form she is the only Creator. Outside of form, he is the Source of creation. This is why the Mother says “creation comes from movement.” Creation in the world of form does come from movement; when something moves not, it dissolves back into the Formless or Transcendental Absolute.
(3) The Mother and the Father are not different. They are one. Therefore it is as true for the Mother to say I am the beginning, the middle and the end as it is for the Father. When It moves, God is the Mother; when It is still, God is the Father. That is the chief difference between the two.
(4) See footnote 1. (“Transcript of the Divine Mother on An Hour with an Angel, May 7, 2012,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/the-2012-scenario/what-role-are-the-angels-playing/transcript-of-the-divine-mother-on-an-hour-with-an-angel-may-7-2012/.)
Steve: You once said to me that Shakti, the Holy Spirit, was only a small part of you. Can you explain what you meant by that? Is Shakti only limited to a certain dimension, universe or realm?
Divine Mother: No. No. When I have spoken about this with Shakti, I have spoken about a part of me. As I have said, I am the bridge, I am the clasp between the Father and the universe and your world. And Shakti has been experienced — yes, inter-dimensionally for eons as you well know. But she is not the totality of my being. My being is bigger than you can fathom, dear one. So I do not simply mean that she is an aspect manifesting. But it is simply larger than any of you can imagine, particularly at this point. (“The Divine Mother: Come to Me as I Come to You – Part 1/2,” Oct. 17, 2012 at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/10/the-divine-mother-come-to-me-as-i-come-to-you-part-12/. )
“The really important thing is … the knowledge of God’s plan for men. For God has a plan, and that plan is evolution. When once a man has seen that and really knows it, he cannot help working for it and making himself one with it, because it is so glorious, so beautiful.” (J. Krishnamurti, At the Feet of the Master. Adyar: Theosophical Publishing House, 1974; c1910, 17.)
The belief that only what we can see, hear, touch, etc. is real. Only what we can perceive with the senses exists. This view leaves out radical discontinuities in knowledge such as enlightenment, visions, and visitations, and the existence of God, celestials, galactics, etc.
Reality is too big to fit into the empirical-materialist paradigm. I expect the model to decline rapidly in the years ahead.
Entrainment is the tendency of a group to move as one, visible in the way fish move in a fish ball or birds move in a flock. Example:
“While the journey to enlightenment … was an individual undertaking, there was also a knowingness that you had a sense of responsibility of bringing others along. …
“Yes, you are not looking for students or followers. What you are truly doing, yes, as pathfinders, you are showing the way, but you are also bringing along the collective in entrainment.
“Now the sages did not think of this, of their journey as a process of entrainment of bringing the entire collective along. You do. And when I say ‘you,’ I mean the current thinking and body of understanding and knowing in the lightworker community. So the fundamental premises have changed.” (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 17, 2017.)
“You do not exist by some freak of nature, and are not the result of natural selection, but purposefully and lovingly created to exist in your environment.
“You are a special species of Humans that have taken over from Cro-Magnon Man, and have been genetically engineered to allow for a speeding up in your evolution. That we would say has been particularly successful, and the proof lies in how many of you now stand in readiness for Ascension.” (SaLuSa, Aug. 25, 2010.)
“Believe us Dear Ones, there is life everywhere you look, and not just in the dimensions that are open to your physical eyes. There are dimensions beyond your reckoning, and still life is present in abundance. It would be difficult to explain such vastness as an accidental occurrence, when it is clear that a mighty intelligence must exist that embraces all that exists.” (SaLuSa, Sept. 23, 2009, at http://www.treeofthegoldenlight.com/First_Contact/Channeled_Messages_by_Mike_Quinsey.htm.)
“Bear in mind that every soul has come to Earth from another civilization, and you are as much extraterrestrials as any others. Indeed, for that reason you feel very much at home with the idea of meeting us. You will be introduced to your true family in course of time, and they have followed your progress and will be overjoyed to meet you once again.” (SaLuSa, Oct. 1, 2012, at http://www.treeofthegoldenlight.com/First_Contact/Channeled_Messages_by_Mike_Quinsey.htm.)
In regards to the decisions we make [as financial stewards of the Mother’s wealth], I think we’re expected to make them in a manner that’s fair and equitable to all.
Fair in that they use a known and commonly-accepted standard of judgment for an even-handed outcome, leaving no one seriously aggrieved.
Equitable, not equal. To legislate equality fails to take into account circumstances that affect only one party, like pregnancy. Equitable is equal with variation in the name of justice. It’s what lies at the heart of affirmative action: Action that compensates for mitigating circumstances. (“Fair and Equitable,” September 25, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/09/25/fair-and-equitable/.)
“As members of the Galactic Federation (GF) we are enlightened Beings, and our relationship to you is based upon our love for you.” (SaLuSa, March 18, 2009, at http://treeofthegoldenlight.com/First_Contact/Channeled_Messages_by_Mike_Quinsey.htm.)
“Many of us are surrounded by a glowing aura. Because of this, and our ability to transform easily into our Light Body, many of your ancestors viewed us with awe.
“Greet us now not in this belief, but merely as your Space Family. Know by what you see that you gaze upon simply what you really are. Like us, you are Physical Angels. Soon, you once again will take on your true form.” (Spiritual Hierarchy and Galactic Federation, Update, May 7, 2002, Galactic Federation of Light: Updates Archive 1997-2007, at http://www.thenewearth.org/GalacticFederationArchive.html.)
The heart that opens is neither the physical heart nor the heart chakra. It isn’t even the “heart” per se.
It’s an aperture smaller than a pinhead, which Hindus call the hridayam, which usually remains shut.
The hridayam, or spiritual heart-aperture, may open temporarily in a lesser stage of enlightenment, but remains open after Sahaja.
It’s located two digits right of the breastbone.
On the other side of the heart aperture resides the Soul, know by a thousand names as the Self, the Christ, the Atman, and the Prince of Peace. Other names include the treasure buried in a field, the pearl of great price, the mustard seed that grew into a great tree, the light always burning on the altar, our “original face,” and our Buddha nature. (“Quick Review of Ascension and Sahaja Samadhi,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/into-the-golden-age-of-gaia/the-golden-age-of-gaia/quick-review-of-ascension-and-sahaja-samadhi/.)
“I come this day to say that I am increasing the frequency of my Tsunami of Love. Yes, it has been intense. But this is a period of fulfillment. And, sweet angels of light, fulfillment is intense! Your hearts, your love, your ecstasy, your minds, your physical bodies. You feel – because you are sensitives – that you in many ways are exploding. Do not try. Do not even think or consider tamping it down. …
“So is there a massive heart opening occurring on this planet? And can you point, as you have for millions of years, to the moon and the stars and say, “Now this is a sign”? I say, yes!” (Divine Mother in “Transcript ~ A Mass Heart Opening on This Planet,” August 21, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/08/21/transcript-a-massive-heart-opening-on-this-planet/.)
Archangel Michael: “The heart opening is the blessing in which you [become] more clearly aware of your infinite, eternal Self.” (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Apr. 24, 2015.)
“Hoʻoponopono is getting to ‘the state of Zero, where we would have zero limits. No memories. No identity.’
“To reach this state … includes using the mantra, ‘I love you. I’m sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.’ It is based on Len’s idea of 100% responsibility, taking responsibility for everyone’s actions, not only for one’s own.
“If one would take complete responsibility for one’s life, then everything one sees, hears, tastes, touches, or in any way experiences would be one’s responsibility because it is in one’s life. The problem would not be with our external reality, it would be with ourselves. Total Responsibility, according to Hew Len, advocates that everything exists as a projection from inside the human being.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ho%CA%BBoponopono#Ritual)
“The Illuminati is not an organization of card-carrying members, but rather the ‘umbrella’ name of disparate groups and a large number of powerful individuals who have been controlling or heavily influencing the most important aspects of life throughout your world for centuries.
“In recent years they also have become known by other designations, such as the secret government, New World Order, dark cabal or the elitists; and they include the top figures in financial institutions, investment markets, multinational corporations, religions, education, media, military forces, judicial systems, entertainment, the medical ‘establishment,’ regulatory and advisory bodies, royal families, Zionists.” (Matthew’s Message, April 26, 2010, at http://www.matthewbooks.com/mattsmessage.htm..)
“They have controlled governments, started civil and international wars, caused famines and widespread impoverishment, created boom times for industrialists and depressions for the poor, released laboratory-designed viruses, assassinated opposition. They are the perpetrators of unjust laws, Satanic rituals, chemtrails and other toxic pollution, destruction of animal life on land and in the seas, mind control, the ‘illegal’ drug industry, erosion of civil rights and denial of God-given freedoms, suppression or misuse of technology, political and ideological divisiveness. In short, the Illuminati have been profoundly adversely affecting all life on Earth—indeed, the very life of Earth herself!” (Matthew’s Message, April 26, 2010, at http://www.matthewbooks.com/mattsmessage.htm.
“These words (“I AM”) represent the absolute and many in their spiritual enthusiasm, have made the mistake of trying to live the absolute before attaining the consciousness of it. Attaining a consciousness of absolute truth is the evolutionary journey. This is what you are now ready for, practicing, and moving into. Truth begins as intellectual knowledge, but can never manifest into expression until realized.” (The Arcturian Group. Channelled by Marilyn Raffaele. January 10, 2016, http://goldenageofgaia.com/2016/01/11/the-arcturian-group-via-marilyn-raffaele-january-10-2016/.)
There are things more important than intellectual knowledge. More important than that kind of knowledge is experiential knowledge. And more important than experiential knowledge is the realized knowledge that transcends experience, that leaves the sensory world behind.
When most enlightened sages use the word “knowledge” without a modifier, they’re usually referring to realized knowledge or realization. (Steve Beckow, “The Purpose of Life Applies not Only to Humans,” January 19, 2017, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/01/19/285923/.)
Intellectual knowledge is mostly, but not completely, word- or image-based. It consists of one person conveying an idea to another, which in common-sensical language we call getting the idea, getting the word out, passing the message along, etc.
Thought doesn’t stop with the quieting of the mind. Thought in the higher realms is highly and instantaneously creative. It’s creative in this dimension as well, but not instantaneous.
For us, believing is usually seeing. Our thoughts restrict and restrain us by placing limits on us where no natural limits exist. I cannot do this. I’m not good enough for that. I’ll never be able to do the other.
We bring all manner of illness and disease on ourselves by thinking in ways like others are a pain in the backside or I’m carrying the world on my shoulders. Our thoughts have a powerful influence on our bodies and our lives.
This form of knowing is not only necessary for interpersonal communication, at the level of evolution we’re at, but it forms the basis of the manner in which people in our culture understand what’s happening here and orient to what there is to do.
However intellectual knowledge is shallow in terms of its impact on us. Many people live in a world of ideas exclusively and have very little contact with their heart, with love, or – with the next stage of knowing – their feelings. …
Experiential knowledge touches us more deeply and impactfully than conceptual knowledge. Experiential knowledge includes knowledge obtained from external events like sensations on the body and internal events like hunger, thirst, fatigue, pain, illness, etc.
But its most familiar and important form of content is feelings. “Most important” because people don’t usually act on our behalf until they know how we feel about the matter in question. Feelings are what enroll people to act for us or not. …
Being aware of our feelings leads to far greater certainty than does simply understanding most concepts. It’s something that isn’t rewarded a lot in our society, although it was for a brief period in the Sixties and Seventies. Then it was forgotten when the growth movement collapsed during and after the recession of the early Eighties.
The more we penetrate into our inner reality, the more impact our knowing has on us. Feeling love, for instance, has far more impact on us than simply discussing the notion of love.
And then there’s knowledge gained through realization. We talk about realization in many ways: “getting” something, having an “Aha!” or “Eureka!” moment, seeing something clearly for the first time, having a transforming flash of insight, etc.
In its much deeper phase, we call it illumination, enlightenment, Self-Realization, etc. …
Realized knowledge leaves us with certainty, confidence, dedication, energy. We seldom forget moments of realization. They have the impact of us knowing something for certain. …
Without being too rigid, I’d like to suggest that the way we learn is by walking through these three steps: getting an idea of something, feeling it, and then realizing it. Whether we’re on the Third, Fourth, Fifth or higher dimensions, we first begin to suss out where we are and how things work. We then explore the experience of the things we’ve become aware of. And finally we start to get much deeper insights about them in moments of realization. (Steve Beckow, “Thinking, Feeling, and Realizing,”
Ideas (intellectual knowledge) elicit our mild interest.
Feelings (experiential knowledge) elicit strong interest and sympathetic action.
Intuition (intuitive knowledge) calls up mild certainty in us.
Realization (realized knowledge) calls up strong certainty. …
When we share our knowledge, if we communicate ideas, people may be mildly interested for a while, that interest declining the longer we share.
If we communicate feelings, people are often roused and moved to action on our behalf.
If we communicate our intuition, people may accept our version, at least as being the truth for ourselves.
If we share our realizations, people may accept our version as being possible and perhaps probable truth for all. (“Up Jacob’s Ladder of Consciousness,” March 4, 2016, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2016/03/04/up-jacobs-ladder-of-consciousness/.)
“One of the ways you are benefitting from this now is the internet, which comes to you on your computers that have been back-engineered from the super-computers we have aboard our ships. You are and have been benefitting from the back-engineering of our technology in so many other ways that you will be informed of during the disclosure announcements, and we have long wished to prepare you to learn much of what will be given fruitfully in a short amount of your concept of time.” (The Pleiadian Council of Nine through Wes Annac, April 29, 2013, at http://aquariusparadigm.com.)
A jnani [pronounced YAW-nee] is a sage, one who has achieved at least Brahmajnana (cf.). Sadhu Arunachala gives an example of a sage and his (or her) powers:
“I [said to] Bhagavan [Sri Ramana] … that I had already been staying with him for some months, and yet I did not feel any change in myself. It is the look that purifies, he told me, but it is not a visible purification. Coal takes time to ignite, but charcoal is proportionately quicker, while gunpowder ignites immediately. So it is with men under the powerful glance of a Jnani.” (Sadhu Arunachala [A.W. Chadwick], A Sadhu’s Reminiscences of Ramana Maharshi. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1961, 41.)
The Council of Love uses the term not to mean that which motivates us to action generally, but that which, when triggered, could have us choose to leave, to die. Issues might include acute humiliation, disappointment, disenchantment, abandonment, etc.
“To awaken is to lift the veil, disperse the mist, and leave behind the shadows to experience the glory of God’s divine Reality from which you have been hiding. It seems to you to be so long since you experienced Reality that not only do you doubt its existence, but also, because of what you imagine to be your immensely sinful behavior, you think that even if it does exist you are totally unworthy to return there.
“You see the atrocious sins against humanity that have been committed throughout your recorded history and cannot envision a God Who could or would forgive the perpetrators of such horrors. You are unable to accept (1) that these perpetrators rely on and use the intense negative energies that your harsh judgments of others supply in abundance to enable them to carry out these heinous acts, and (2) that it all truly is illusory.” (Saul through John Smallman, Nov. 6, 2010, at http://johnsmallman.wordpress.com.)
“Each of you, my beloved brothers and sisters, … have begun your journey, not only as a spark of light, not only as an emanation from the heart of One, but as an angel—some of you, a few of you, even as archangels, or one of the keepers of the dominions or the principalities or the virtues. …
“And then, yes, you have incarnated, you have been the adventurous ones, you have been the explorers, and you believed in yourself strongly enough to say to the Mother/Father One, ‘I am going to go. I will assume form. I will know the joy of being in form and physicality, and then I will come home and resume my form.’
“Well, some of you have not resumed in eons. But that matters not. Whether you are starseed or hybrid or Earth-keeper, you still are angelic.” (Archangel Michael, An Hour with an Angel, March 26, 2012, at http://the2012scenario.com/2012/03/archangels-michael-and-gabriel-on-the-angelic-realm-hour-with-an-angel-transcript-march-26-2012/.)

“When you are not in form, sometimes you’re angelic; sometimes you are archangelic, seraph, cherubim, ascended ones, enlightened beings, sheer energies, star beings. …
“So many of you say to me, ‘Well, Michael, Me-Kai-El! You’ve got it wrong. Get your legion and get down here because all I am seeing is hatred and greed and anger and fear and envy and chaos.’
“My beloveds, as your brother of peace, I gladly, joyously bring my legions. But do not forget you are part of that legion. And those of you who are not, are of the legion of Gabrielle, or Jophiel, or Raphael. All of you have multiple faces, multiple existences. But you are anchored in where you are by choice, by free will in service to the Mother.” (“Transcript: Archangel Michael Returns to AHWAA: What’s It Like to be an Archangel?

“Let me also step forward and remind each of you of your angelic heritage, of that seed of the angelic that rests within, around, each of you.
“For you have many faces. You have many aspects. You have had many realms and experiences of existence. And for most of you ― no, not all, but for most of you ― you have had existence as angelic of one kind or another. And you carry within thee this essence to this day.
“Now, why do I bring this forward as we begin yet again this conversation on the principalities, thrones, dominions and so on? Because it is important that you also realize that we do not merely speak about the bureaucracy of heaven, or the Company of Heaven. We speak about you, about who you are, and about this energy, this essence, this spark of light that took this form of angelic being once upon a time. And I would urge each of you to acknowledge, to embrace, and to dig and to bring forth your angelic self.” (“Archangel Michael: You are God Having an Experience of You,” June 27, 2014, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/06/27/archangel-michael-you-are-god-having-an-experience-of-you/.)
“You are special Beings of a highly evolved state, except that very few of you are aware of it.

“We know that some of you feel uneasy at that suggestion, and the reason is likely to be because you still feel inadequate to be considered gods. Bear in mind that before you came into duality all of you were gods, and as Beings of Light were amongst the great creators in the Universe.
“You left a lot behind when you chose to experience the lower vibrations, and you lost your identity but it is once more beginning to return through your awakening consciousness.” (SaLuSa, Nov. 2, 2011, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2015/04/25/transcript-archangel-michael-on-mastery-and-leadership-april-16-2015/.).)
“Does there need to be a General? Yes. Does there need to be someone who says yay or nay? Yes. But it is collaborative. It is based on values.

“If no [lightworker] steps forward into [leadership] then there is a massive vacuum because many of the billions upon your planet have not yet learned, adapted and integrated the new tools – the fullness of this new energy.
“So [when non-lightworkers] are assigned … or try to step up … to create and to take the leadership role, they do not have the training and insight to do it in a way that is achievable. … So there is a lack, a vacuum of leadership.
“Now, who, upon this wondrous planet, has been hiding in the shadows or edging out, or in the limelight and is ready? … Who has been diligent and practiced patience and fortitude and stamina, and anchored the divine qualities? Who is it that is prepared to do this?

“Oh yes. We are old friends. There are some, what would you call them, newbies upon the planet and they have mostly traveled from various sectors of the universe, but most of us, my friends…we have been at this in and out of various forms for a long time.

“What our universal family is authorized to do is the same as it has been since 9/11: They can prevent all Illuminati attempts to detonate nuclear weaponry in furtherance of their terrorist attacks. The free will decisions they are not permitted to interfere with also are the same: They can’t prevent weapons testing.” (Suzy Ward to Steve Beckow, March 24, 2011.)
“There are restraints [against the Dark] and we can for example refer to the divine edict, that no military power will be allowed to use nuclear weapons, or start World War Three. (SaLuSa, June 27, 2011, at http://www.treeofthegoldenlight.com/First_Contact/Channeled_Messages_by_Mike_Quinsey.htm.)
“[Recent events] won’t lead to World War III. That certainty is based in Earth’s expressed desire that no major war ever again will occur on her planetary body, and your benevolent ET family on and off-planet will prevent any dark attempts to circumvent Earth’s wishes.” (Matthew’s Message, April 3, 2011, at http://www.matthewbooks.com/mattsmessage.htm.)
“We carry out far more actions than you have been aware of, and of necessity we keep the details to ourselves. However, you have for example heard of our operations to show that we meant our orders to your governments that nuclear weapons will not allowed to be used. We proved that we could at will disable the warheads on your missile sites.” (SaLuSa, Mar. 11, 2011.)
“We of the Galactic Federation are more active than ever, not that we would expect you to necessarily be aware of what we are doing. With what is tantamount to the last big battle between the dark Ones and the Light, we are supporting our allies to ensure that matters do not get out of hand. Where there is even the hint of using nuclear weapons, we are preventing such a happening.
“So we can assure you that regardless of what you may hear or read in the Press, there will not be a nuclear war. It was a long time ago that such a Divine instruction was given to us, as so much damage and pollution has already been caused by their use or testing. Man has learnt little since the first Atomic Bombs were dropped on Japan, and even that act was unnecessary to gain a peaceful surrender.” (SaLuSa, Jan. 19, 2011.)
“How would I get to experience Myself if it were not for you?”
“Before you there was just Me, before the Earth and all the planets and star systems and galaxies and universes there was just Me and only Me.

“But as you welcome these parts of your being back into your core, embrace them, celebrate them, but also acknowledge the various parts of who you are — angelic or archangelic, it matters not – starseed, star-being, hybrid, human and Earth-keeper, elemental, deva, fairy, man, woman or child.

“You see all the rules have changed. So that you have decided to maintain form, that doesn’t mean we’re going to have you punished by not allowing you access to the 7th.
“That is the old paradigm. ‘You can’t come here, unless you die.’ Well, that’s not true! That’s what enlightenment and Ascension is about. You can go as far, you can go and feel and be the Love that is the 7th Christ consciousness. You can have it all and then you pull it into your physical form so that you are a walking, talking, working, creating Christ consciousness Being.” (“Transcript: Heavenly Blessings – St. Germaine on Where to Look for Results,” channeled by Linda Dillon, July 15, 2014, at http://goo.gl/OxNpnG.)

Self-Realization is a relative term. Every enlightenment experience can be said to be Self-Realization, just at greater and greater depths.

“In the higher vibrations in which Earth is now orbiting, that truth [about who planned and executed 9/11] cannot be hidden much longer; when it emerges along with its even deeper purpose than controlling oil resources in the Mideast, which is to dominate the entire planet and kill or enslave its peoples, the Illuminati’s long reign of terror will meet its just end.” (Matthew’s Message, Sept. 14, 2008, at http://www.matthewbooks.com/mattsmessage.htm..)

“The deaths, injuries and property destruction in Mumbai, India, were the work of the Illuminati-controlled faction of the CIA.

“The secret of immortality is to be found in purification of the heart, in meditation, in realization of the identification of the Self within and Brahman without. For immortality is union with God.” (Swami Prabhavananda and Frederick Manchester, trans., The Upanishads. Breath of the Eternal. New York and Scarborough: New American Library, 1957; c1948, 13.)
Here’s an adaptation of the same view by a more contemporary teacher:
“Whatever be our spiritual path, Hindu, Buddhist, Christian, or Sufi, the three stages we all have to follow are purification, meditation, and experience of the divine reality or Godhead.” (Swami Yatiswarananda in Christopher Isherwood, ed., Vedanta for Modern Man. New York: Collier Books, 1962; c1945, 133-4.)
To Buddhists, the corresponding three stages would be called sila, samadhi, and prajna (purification, meditation, and wisdom/realization).

But, sweet angel of love, you know and those who are the loveholders know that this simply will not occur. The old third no longer exists. It is that simple.” (“Archangel Michael on Current Chaos and Joy” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2017/01/27/archangel-michael-current-chaos-joy/.)
Vasanas could be defined as the automatic, mechanical, or habitual ways we have of responding to situations. They are ingrained patterns of behavior.
They could also be thought of as our unpaid bills in life, our debts, our accounts payable. They are our karmic residue, the precipitate of, or what’s left over from, our perpetrations in life. They also can be seen as our old issues, unfinished business, excess baggage in life. They skew our behavior and we’re seldom aware they’re operating. While they’re widely known in the growth movement and spirituality, I’m not aware that the subject is taught in schools. Most people do not know what vasanas are.
Vasanas are the main obstacle to our well-being and happiness in life. They are the Tin Man in us, the robot, the automaton. They are the gruff troll, the witch, the ogre. All the fairy tales about these beings are, in the end, about vasanas. (Steve Beckow, “What is a Vasana? – Part 1/2,”November 23, 2010, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2010/11/23/what-is-a-vasana-part-12/.)
Vasanas are persistent reaction patterns that go off in the present but are traceable to traumatic events in the far-distant past.
Other people have called vasanas engrams, records, files, patterns, numbers, rackets, trips, old baggage, and so on.
As the twig is bent, the tree inclines. The vasana often determines our future pattern of growth. …
The vasana contains all the sensory memories of the original event. …
The vasana also contains conclusions and decisions reached either during or after the event. …
The vasana causes us to see life in certain ways. It closes us to other possibilities. It defines the possible, the plausible and the probable.
Over time, we still respond to the commands created at the time of the vasana’s creation – or after – without knowing why we’re doing what we’re doing. …
Will Rogers [once said] that he had seen many tragic things in life and some of them actually happened. So much of what we see only happens in our minds. And we multiply the unreality by telling and retelling our stories, until the polished versions we create stand in for what actually is.(“The Anatomy of a Vasana,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/on-processing-vasanas/the-anatomy-of-a-vasana/.)
It contains the memory of the original incident, complete with sensory memories, beliefs, conclusions, and decisions reached as a result of the incident, and the memory of all other similar incidents that caused the sleeping volcano to go off again, and anything else the mind associates with it as a total structure. (“The Difference Between False Grids and Vasanas,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/on-processing-vasanas/the-difference-between-false-grids-and-vasanas/.)
To the best of my knowledge, very, very few people are free of their vasanas. “As one set of Vasanas is worn away,” Sadhu Arunachala said, “another takes its place.” (Sadhu Arunachala [A.W. Chadwick], A Sadhu’s Reminiscences of Ramana Maharshi. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1961, 40, cited in Steve Beckow, “Vasanas, Vrittis and the Endpoint of Enlightenment,” at http://goldenageofgaia.com/spiritual-essays/on-processing-vasanas/vasanas-vrittis-and-the-endpoint-of-enlightenment/.)
“Vasanas which do not obstruct Self-Realization remain [after Self-Realization]. In Yoga Vasistha two classes of vasanas are distinguished: those of enjoyment and those of bondage. The former remain even after Mukti [liberation] is attained, but the latter are destroyed by it. Attachment is the cause of binding vasanas, but enjoyment without attachment does not bind and continues even in Sahaja [Fifth-Dimensional enlightenment].” (Ramana Maharshi, Cohen, S.S., Guru Ramana. Memories and Notes. 6th edition. Tiruvannamalai: Sri Ramanasramam, 1993, 89.)
“There is only one Violet Flame and it is the I AM. So it manifests in every dimension, every reality and actually on every planet. …
“Do not forget it is not simply elimination; it is creation as well with the I AM and the Violet Flame. So please, bring it to fulfillment. Bring forth what you wish, insert the Violet Flame, allow it to build into form. Do it daily and know that I am with you; I am with you now and I am with you forever.” (“Transcript: St. Germaine on Heavenly Blessings – the Violet Flame and the I AM Presence,” December 2, 2012, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2012/12/02/transcript-st-germaine-on-heavenly-blessings-the-violet-flame-and-the-i-am-presence/.)
I AM that Violet Consuming Flame that is all mastery and All Power to change all things into Divine Perfection right Now. I AM that I AM in action here, Now and Forever. Almighty I AM. Almighty I AM. Almighty I AM. So Be IT. (“Archangel Gabriel: The Cosmic Escalator Carrying You Through April,” channeled by Shanta Gabriel, April 1, 2014 at http://www.thegabrielmessages.com.)
“Why do we have Universal Law? … [They are] the rules of how things work and they do not change.
“So one of the issues that you are working with is you are in an environment, a situation, of constant change, whether you acknowledge it or realize it or not. And so, when you refer to the law, you have a framework within which to work with that constant change, and to go to the place of balance.
“The purpose of the law, the foundation of the law, is balance. It is to assist you, to guide you — and all beings — to the place of balance. So, that is the reason for Universal Law.” (“Sanat Kumara: You’re Ready to Build Societies in Adherence with the Law,” April 23, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/04/sanat-kumara-youre-ready-to-build-societies-in-adherence-with-the-law/.)
“ What happens when you truly engage with the Universal Law is that it removes the illusion upon which so much of human experience has been based.” (“Sanat Kumara: You’re Ready to Build Societies in Adherence with the Law,” April 23, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/04/sanat-kumara-youre-ready-to-build-societies-in-adherence-with-the-law/.)
“If you want to know the how-to – and that is how you get to some of your vasanas or issues or blockages, however you choose to describe these – it is that you reflect upon the Universal Law and what is not in alignment.” (“Sanat Kumara: You’re Ready to Build Societies in Adherence with the Law,” April 23, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/04/sanat-kumara-youre-ready-to-build-societies-in-adherence-with-the-law/.)
“Love is the core of Universal Law. It is the core of everything. You use Universal Law to understand how to create, how to proceed, how even to think and consider yourselves. And that is what we do and given any situation we refer consciously and sometimes even in a very formalized manner, particularly at the Inter-Galactic Council, we refer to the laws as one body but also the particular laws.
“For example, we have used the Law of Balance, of Sacred Purpose, of Change a great deal in not only formulating our approach, interaction, and our communion with you, with Gaia, with coming to Earth, so that it would not ever harm you or create fear but rather to complement.” (“Transcript: Heavenly Blessings with Ashira ~ 6th in a Series,” channeled by Linda Dillon, May 6, 2014, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2014/05/16/transcript-heavenly-blessings-with-ashira-6th-in-a-series-aired-may-6-2014/.)
“For the grid of humanity at this time, there are specifically about 13 Universal Laws that you are working with. “ (“Sanat Kumara: You’re Ready to Build Societies in Adherence with the Law,” April 23, 2013, at http://goldenageofgaia.com/2013/04/sanat-kumara-youre-ready-to-build-societies-in-adherence-with-the-law/.)
These are they:
Law of Sacred Purpose
Law of Intent
Law of Above and Below, Within and Without, Balance
Law of Change
Law of Give and Receive
Law of Attachment and Detachment
Law of Unification, Unity
Law of Transmutation
Law of Instantaneous Transmission and Transformation
Law of Dispensation
Law of Attraction and Repulsion
