I’ve just finished a book on Emergence as a Path for Lightworkers. Why emergence? Why now?
I’d like to distinguish between two pathways to God, one not as suitable for lightwork and the other more suitable.
The first is via enlightenment. And the other is by (what I call) “emergence.”
Enlightenment is an abrupt discontinuity in experiencing, accompanied by bliss, which brings about a life-altering realization.
Enlightenment tends to be more suited to those who have no worldly responsibilities. It appeals to raja and jnana yogis in Hinduism.
All lightworkers here today have signed up for worldly responsibilities; namely, to build Nova Earth. Emergence can be a more suitable path for those who intend to work in the world.
Emergence is an opening to the higher-dimensional aspects of ourselves to speak and act through us. We become an invitation to the highest in ourselves to come forth in any one situation. We welcome the expansion of our faculties and capabilities as they happen. Emergence tends to appeal to karma yogis in Hinduism.
Of course everyone has the freedom to choose whatever path – or blend – they wish to pursue. What I’d like to do here is state the case for the less-known pathway of emergence – for lightworkers.
Following it means we put aside launching into advanced states of samadhi. Said Archangel Michael:
“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.” (1)
Why now? For the needs of this important lifetime of service and stewardship, we seek a pathway to God that enhances our ability to be in the world, not one that makes it more difficult.
No, emergence doesn’t mean trampling on the other person. That’s the opposite of emergence. It violates the Law of Free Will. Anything built on it will not stand. We want the emergence of that which invites permanence.
What invites permanence is love. Love and its forms – bliss, peace, abundance, etc. – are all there is, even though that’s not apparent in this Third-Fourth Dimensional reality where our consciousness remains centered.
Our creations are dense and create the illusion that they’re made from something else – water, carbon, calcium, etc. But one can reach a dimension – and I have – where there’s nothing but love. (2) Then everything said about it becomes immediately apparent.
It’s this love that emerges. From where? From our hearts, where it hides, awaiting recognition.
I estimate that the vast majority of people presently alive do not know what higher-dimensional love feels like.
Why not? Because we have an aperture (probably etheric) that closes off the heart (which, come to think of it, is probably etheric as well). This aperture is called, in Sanskrit, the hridayam. With that aperture closed, we don’t experience a love that would immediately answer all our questions. (3)
Emerging requires removing the barriers to being present to what Buddhists call “loving kindness.” These barriers are primarily vasanas or core issues, the behavior patterns they give rise to, and the critical voice, which I call “Constant Comment,” that’s born from adapting to these vasanas.
As we come out from all this, in my experience, the ability to express love grows and grows.
Now expressing love is handy if one is building Nova Earth. Nova Earth must be built on love or, like most other human creations, some of them built on slave labor, it won’t survive.
As we enlighten, we turn inwards. As we emerge, we turn outwards. This is an age, an era in which the prime directive, if you’ll allow me to playfully borrow from Star Trek, is to turn outwards.
Turn outwards and rescue the trafficked women and children. Turn outwards and feed the hungry. Turn outwards and house the homeless. Later we can turn inwards again.
Archangel Michael gave a good description of this part of the Divine Plan in 2013:
“So what the clarity is also doing is creating greater cooperation, a greater sense of working together. Because one individual alone can very seldom achieve their entire mission and purpose and plan. If that was possible, if that was the plan of the Mother, then what you would have done is incarnate on the planet by yourself. And that was not the way you chose to come. And that was certainly not the plan of the Mother.
It was to come in the fullness of your design in community, in a community of many billions, which in the way is just a drop in the bucket in terms of the multiverse. But you chose to come and work in cooperation, and in ways that were enriching and expansive and rewarding, and filled with laughter and joy, and reciprocity.
So what you are also going to see with the expansion of this gift is more cooperation in terms of, “If you do this, I can do this piece. And if you can do this other piece, I can take this.” That is a truly human creation and the building of Nova Earth. It is groups coming together. (4) [My emphasis.]
This is an outward path. Strange that I, a hermit, should be saying this, but this lifetime is about “groups coming together.” And emergence helps, promotes, and eases that.
Emergence can at times be noisy. It happens often at times of creative chaos, such as this pandemic is creating. It most usually happens as a breakthrough, but it can also come as a simple, quiet “Aha!” or realization. Often – not always – it lands a person in a transformed state, having accessed a higher-dimensional version of themselves. More often it results in the gradual exit from a shell, script, or other inhibiting circumstance.
Emergence is usually temporary but some of it continues in memory. I for instance remember a time I emerged at the Denver Airport (long story; another time) and another time in an est 6-Day course. Oh, and I remember another in a Communication Workshop. I hadn’t given the matter thought, but yes, those were breakthrough moments and instances of emergence.
We think of emergence as often following taking a stand, especially if the stand took courage to take. It often takes the form of a “No!” a line drawn in the sand, a parting of the ways. But it can just as easily take the form of an enthusiastic, “Yes!”
Afterwards, there’s more of us here, in this everyday reality, not less, as with enlightenment: that’s the prime distinction between the two.
All meet at the end. Those who mingled and emerged will meet with those who have isolated and realized, the karma yogis will join with the jnana and raja yogis. And after this assignment we get to return to our respective caves … I mean, planets … and pick up where we left off.
So that’s my brief statement of support for emergence vs enlightenment for lightworkers. Or rather enlightenment for lightholders; emergence for lightworkers. There’s nothing good or bad about either choice. It’s just that if we mix them up, the result may be frustrating.
I’m here to serve this lifetime. One cannot serve in samadhi. Therefore it’s appropriate for me to emerge.
