Question: If you filled every inch of space and were the only one present, how would you know yourself?
Answer: Create an illusory world in which illusory selves go on a voyage of discovery and realize their true identity, at which point the One meets the One. That is how you would know yourself when you’re the only One in town.
So here are we illusory selves, all sharing one purpose which gets buried under everyday concerns, and that is the concern that we know ourselves.
Knowing we’d get lost again and again, Mother/Father God built into each and every one of us a homing device, a subtidal thirst for liberation, for Self-Knowledge, for union with the One. The name for it that I prefer is the Longing for Liberation. It’s also called the yearning for God, divine dissatisfaction, divine restlessness, and hunger for unification.
This perpetual longing keeps us moving towards God.
From God to God we go, in a sacred arc and a spiritual spiral, which returns us to the same karmic lessons lifetime after lifetime.
If you were to look up ahead of you or behind you while in the arc, the view would look very much like the nautilus shell in the graphic, which is why I use it. I know this because I experienced a vision in 1987 in which all this was revealed to me. (1) The more I unpack the vision, the more I learn.
So, yes, there is a purpose to our lives and that purpose is enlightenment. There is a purpose to God creating this leela or divine play that we’re all involved in and that purpose is for God to meet God.
If we realize this, if we get it down to our bones, it provides a sound foundation from which to deduce many other pieces of the puzzle.
Enlightenment is in the hands of the Mother and the archangels. People who’ve agreed to serve as lightworkers may also have consented to postponing their enlightenment until they complete their agreements. So keep that in mind.
That certainly applies to me. None of the higher enlightenments are open to me and even the junior levels are moderated so that I don’t wander off to a cave. (2) And I agree that I would. I’ve consented to this kind of intervention.
The servants at the banquet of Ascension serve first and eat later. I think that’s the plan here. And I personally am totally fine with it.

(2) Divine Mother: Let me be very clear about [the Xenia sight of the Self]. If you had seen the Light as it actually is [instead of it being toned down], yes, a million, billion suns… You would have simply departed. … We don’t mean die but you would have departed the life that you have designed – yes, with us, for yourself, for the service you are providing – you would have departed and simply said, “I do not need to do this. I will just simply sit in the bliss of love and good luck, everybody!” (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Oct. 26, 2018.)
Steve: Should I be orienting toward ascending early or not? I have this sense that I’m supposed to be here.
Archangel Michael: You’re supposed to be here. … Stay put, dear heart. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Sept. 13, 2011. Hereafter AAM.)
AAM: You cannot ― well, you can if you wish, if it is your choice, simply remain in that state of unity, of One ― but you cannot be fully conscious and in service, in action, if that is where you are. (AAM, Feb. 14, 2012.)
Right now if you were to complete your full ascension, many of you would not bother to stay and finish the creation of Nova Earth.
Steve: So you really have to meter it out to us, so to speak, so as not to send us flying off into some other pursuit?
AAM: That is correct. (AAM, March 10, 2017.)
