In our reading on Feb. 17, 2017, Archangel Michael and I discussed the fact that the sages could not speak about dimensions 50-100 years ago.
Added to the new knowledge of dimensions is the ultra-new knowledge that we can flow back and forth between them.
He discussed the spiritual significance of stillness. He discussed how bliss can manifest as peace, an experience of which I had and wrote up a few days ago.
He described bliss as the experience of love and love as I used the term as the expression of love. “Bliss is the internal experience that love tends to express externally,” he said.
I asked AAM if the Transcendental had subplanes. After all, Sri Ramakrishna reported seeing his disciples happily living in the Transcendental. He confirmed it. Where else could one ask these questions and get answers like these than from the celestials?
Thanks to Dana for our transcript.
Archangel Michael: There was not earlier, in the time of these sages, who are very sacred individuals, the same framework of understanding of inter-dimensionality or multidimensionality. It was more the sense that there was the self and then there was the universe and the bridge of enlightenment.
So it was not viewed as a complete unified field through which human beings and all realities had access. It was considered a somewhat arduous undertaking and it was not termed “shifting dimensions” because the science, the culture, the framework within which one operated, even in the higher states, shall we say, was not open and available.
“That information would have been too confusing. Because, while the journey to enlightenment (Yes, to “enlightenment”; “to wholeness” is what I was going to say) was an individual undertaking, there was also a knowingness that you had a sense of responsibility of bringing others along. Now that sense of bringing others along wasn’t defined by dimensions. It was more a teacher/student, sage/novitiate relationship. So the framework was very different.
What you have now, is the knowingness that you are, for purposes of explanation, moving forward dimensionally, flowing back and forth, and that sense also of the flow throughout dimensions, that you can flow back and forth, that it was not restricted, that it wasn’t that you arrived at Heaven’s Gate and that was it.
This flow is new. Well, it is not new but it is new to human thinking and the sense that, 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.
Steve Beckow: Wow!
I have this thought that so many of the real breakthroughs that humans have had have come from people who are already enlightened and have come back to Earth to help humanity, etc. Can you tell me anything about Sri Ramana’s past lives?
AAM: It is too soon and that will be up to him.
Steve: Now, we use this word “love” to cover so many things and it is very, very confusing. For instance, love and bliss: To think that bliss is not love does not make any sense.
And yet, we use a word like “bliss” to differentiate this from love. And I have said that the differentiation is that love has me feel like going outwards and extending it to other people whereas bliss has me wanting to just sit here and beam, just enjoy and not do very much at all really. Can you help me understand the relationship between bliss and love and the differences between them please?
AAM: They are simply different aspects, different faces of the same thing. Think of it in this way.
Let us be practical. Think of your favourite, not jacket but sweater or sweatshirt and there are days when it might be slightly cool in your apartment or is stormy and wet outside and all you really want to do is to put on your favourite, cozy sweatshirt and curl up on that beautiful new couch (1) and that is the sense: the sweatshirt or the sweater and that cozy feeling of cocooning is bliss.
The same sweatshirt, the same sweater can be used; “Oh, I am going to go out and meet myself or a friend for breakfast but it is slightly chilled in the air so I’m going to put on my favourite cozy sweater and go out and this will protect me from the wind and from the chill in the air.”
And so you are out and about and you are beaming and you are engaging with the outer world and you have this layer of cozy bliss protection but it is seen as love because you are out and about.
Humans, and this is truly not something we have really talked about; humans have these things called “moods.” And you know fully well what I’m talking about.
We don’t really have moods.
Steve: (laughing) You don’t have moods… You don’t want moods!
AAM: (laughing)… We don’t! Moods are troublesome! But if you took the concept of moods and you elevated it to the love frequency, are you with me?
Steve: Sort of… I’m not sure how to elevate it to the love frequency but I got…
AAM: Just think of it in this way. Love sometimes, because of where you are and what you are inviting, love will come as the bliss, as the deep, joyful, quiet, explosive, never-ending bliss within. And it is something that you want to cross your arms and cross your body and just cuddle and hold or throw open your arms and say, “Bring it on some more.” And that is an elevated mood expression of love.
Then there are times when you have been coddled enough that you can actually move from the experience of love to the expression of love. You can’t truly, genuinely, fully move to the expression of love until you have had the experience of love. Bliss is the experience. Love tends to express.
Steve: Bliss is the experience that love tends to express?
AAM: Bliss is the internal experience that love tends to express externally.
Steve: Okay, externally it is the kind of love I was describing earlier where I just want to share with everybody.
AAM: That is correct.
Steve: Experienced internally it feels like bliss, what we call bliss.
AAM: Yes. Sometimes you will also experience it internally as the deepest sense of abiding peace and that is what I mean when I talk of peace.
Steve: I did experience that the other day. I did experience that abiding peace and it was absolutely wonderful!
AAM: Yes, and then what happens when you have your wellspring filled with that, then you are prepared, you are in a position, in a human position to then want to go out and express it and share it and be it.
Because it is so big that even while you are in the bliss, you want to stay there forever but as you come out, you want to share it because that is the flow of love. It is intended to be shared.
The Mother is our infinite love. But how do we know that? We experience it.
Steve: Yes. Is it appropriate to call the Mother, “Love in action” and the Father, “Love in stillness”?
AAM: That is a wonderful way to express it.
Steve: Now within the transcendental of course, there is no material movement but there is plenty of movement of love, right? So it’s not as if the Father is absolute stillness from all things, just stillness from material things.
AAM: It is just a quality of what you think of as form or materiality that translates in your understanding, as stillness.
Steve: Okay. Now you said “it”. Are you referring to the stillness I just finished talking about?
AAM: The stillness is what I am talking about. The Father would claim and say, if he was to speak, that he is very dynamic!
Steve: But not in anything material or phenomenal…
AAM: It is not necessary.
Steve: But there are people living in the transcendental; for instance, Swami Vivekananda and various of the circle of Sri Ramakrishna were to be found in the transcendental, is that correct?
AAM: Yes, that is correct.
Steve: So, people live there? Are there such things as the equivalent of dimensions in the transcendental?
Steve: Aaahhh! When are we going to hear about that?
AAM: Not for a while. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 17, 2017.)
(1) More miracles. I decided one day to go to the Salvation Army and pick up a couch and a knotty-pine coffee table. (My bedroom as a child was done in knotty pine.)
When I arrived there, they had a couch, a knotty-pine coffee table and a desk for my bedroom, all at super-reasonable prices. Speak of one-stop shopping! And the couch was a three-seater, the two end seats of which folded down into recliners. Again this task of finding these three pieces of furniture could have taken me time, but was completely handled in one stop.
From this perspective, a move has never been easier. It was miraculously easy. The physical exertion was something else.
