If I were to restate what are for me the basics, my restatement would be incomplete without a word on emergence and balance. These two notions have become so important to me in the last three or four years that I feel a surge of love each time I utter them.
“Emergence” is a word, not the thing itself. You can hang it on your wall, read it every day and nothing will occur from repeating the word.
And to describe what occurs when we do emerge is also difficult. Emergence is a spiritual event. When it happens, it isn’t easy to say what just happened – except emergence.
In the split second in which we emerge, we put our fears behind us, cast off our constraints, and stand forth radiantly. We feel our full selves at that moment and radiate peace and confidence.
Why do I mention it? Well, in another article I said that enlightenment was the purpose of life. That God should meet God was the reason why all life forms were created.
But most people associate enlightenment with meditation and singing devotional hymns. But we here read and write. What spiritual practice is consistent with reading and writing? In my opinion, emergence is.
Emergence appears to be related to speaking. When we speak our truth fearlessly, we emerge. And so what I’m advising is that we do just that – speak our truth fearlessly and emerge. It’s our enlightenment practice, if you will, a practice particularly suited to lightworker communicators.
But the minute I say that I feel the tug from my inner guidance to add: “harmlessly.” Humans can turn anything into a weapon, even the truth. And so unless we speak the truth harmlessly, even the truth becomes a lie.
We often emerge by the stands we take, the commitments we make, the promises, declarations, and other forms of soul-speaking that we engage in. We emerge in and through the use of language. What we are doing is using the very medium of language as our enlightenment practice. If Zen is a transmission outside of langauge, then emergence is a transmission inside of language.
Emergence means we are fully here, fully present. Given that the dark ones on this planet intended to defeat and enslave us through financial manipulation and the erosion of constitutional rights (which they sold us as a “war on terror”), our emergence from the bonds of fear is no less than a social revolution.
Occupy, Arab Spring, We Won’t Pay and Wikileaks are all forms of social emergence. So when I say to you “emerge,” I’m counselling revolution. I’m probably being more seditious than you could possibly imagine, at least in the eyes of the cabal. (1)
Emergence is service of the Divine Plan. And what is the Divine Plan for this time? The ending of duality on the planet and the rise of unity – and more particularly unitive consciousness. And all of that leads us to the second essential notion – balance.
Emergence doers not persist forever. Yesterday’s emergence would not buy you a cup of coffee today. We need to emerge daily. But what causes emergence to persist for even a short while is balance.
I don’t personally conceive of balance as a teeter-totter or a set of scales. Balance for me is not a question of up or down or more or less weight. It’s a question of being in one’s center or not.
I theorize that emergence persists in direct proportion to balance. To the extent that I can remain in the center, emergence persists. Remaining in the center is a function of the reduction of desires for worldly things and pleasures. Worldly desires are what pull me away from my center. When my desires are quiet, I remain in the center.
The more desires I have, the more I seem to exist on the peripheries. And the peripheries are really what we think of as “up” and “down.” When my desires are quieted, my mind is quieted and I remain quietly in the heart or passively in the center.
I have no right to call myself a spiritual teacher. Spiritual teachers are enlightened and I am not, At least not in this lifetime. Like all starseeds I come from a higher dimension, or so I’m told. And so chances are that I’ve been enlightened in another lifetime but wear blinkers in this one to serve Ascension. Even though I’m not a teacher and don’t aspire to be one, the Boss (AAM) has said that I would soon be writing on spiritual themes and so it has developed.
My spiritual path is awareness and my discipline is observation. I “be with and observe” all unwanted conditions, upsets, resistances, and incompletions. And the more I be with and observe their rising, persistence and passing away, the more my mind grows quiet and I remain in the center.
Groundedness and centeredness are, I believe, synonyms for balance. Maturity is as well. The Boss has said time and time again that balance is an essential quality for Ascension.
If balance meant not too much of this and not too much of that, then why would the Boss urge balance for Ascension? But when we remember that balance means remaining quietly in the heart, the role it may play becomes clearer. If we’re balanced, we’re complete with Third Dimensionality and not holding onto this old setting and its pleasures and attachments. We’re free to fly, as the Boss would say.
So emergence calls us out of our fears and balance releases our hold on the Third Dimension. Emerge and balance, emerge and balance. Turn away from this dimension that we’re leaving and set our sites, in a grounded and centered manner, on the new dimension that looms out in front of us.
Balance and emerge, balance and emerge. Move forward one step at a time and then consolidate. That’s what it feels like I’ve been doing for as long as I can remember and as far as I can see it works.
And so if you were to ask me what I’ve been doing this last month, perhaps the shortest possible answer I could give would be to balance and emerge. The circumstances have been challenging. I’ve been stretched and strained. I’ve blown a few situations, lost my way, fallen and picked myself up again. I’ve overstretched myself, failed even in many of my smaller undertakings. But all the while I’ve concentrated on emerging from those circumstances and then recovering my balance.
Life is good and it promises to become a whole lot better very soon. But good or bad, the way I plan to meet it is by emerging and balancing, balancing and emerging.
(1) In fact, Archangel Michael told me in a reading on March 8 that the Canadian equivalent of the CIA was observing me and considered me to be a rabble-rouser. Well, there you go. Obviously something I’m doing is working!
