(Concluded from Part 1, above.)
I can now return to my original point. It’s only flattery to think that I’m somehow down to the basics in awareness of myself and don’t need to keep purifying.
Purifying ourselves – which is what gives us access to the heart’s treasures – doesn’t end before we end.
As long as we’re here, there’s more to go.
I say that for a few reasons.
First, God is One without a second. While we may exist on a relative plane, we do not exist in the Absolute Domain. Only the One does.
If I was in a state of absolute purity, I would not exist. Therefore I say that, if I exist, there’s more to purify and we haven’t reached the end of the story yet.
The story could be called From God I Came and to God I Return. At its end, we merge again with Source and disappear. There’s no one around any more.
The job’s been successfully completed. (1) The purpose of life has been fulfilled. (2) The only thing the King has sent me out into the country to do, I did, as Rumi lays out for us:
“There is one thing in this world which must never be forgotten. If you were to forget everything else, but did not forget that, then there would be no cause for worry whereas if you performed and remembered and did not forget every single thing, but forgot that one thing, then you would have done nothing whatsoever.
“It is just as if a king had sent you to the country to carry out a specified task. You go and perform a hundred other tasks, but if you have not performed that particular task on account of which you had gone to the country, it is as if you have performed nothing at all. So man has come into this world for a particular task, and that is his purpose; if he does not perform it, then he will have done nothing.” (3)
That task of course is to realize our true nature, identity, essence. And that true nature, identity, essence is God.
Why is realizing it the purpose of life? Because each time one of us realizes its true nature, God meets God in a moment of our enlightenment. For that meeting was all of this created.
Second, I say there’s more to go because I know/we know that the soul, in its natural state, is not originally sinful but originally pure and innocent. (4)
If we don’t feel pure and innocent, then there’s more purification to go.
Of course we can safely purify forever and know that, in doing so, we’re going in the right direction.
SaLuSa said nearly a decade ago:
“The higher vibrations of the ascended [are] no place for anything other than the Light and Love that exists in the higher dimensions. If you have the intent to ascend, make sure you are clearing the baggage that you have brought with you. Any word, action or deed that is on a lower vibration will feel out of place, so you should be able to gradually remove them from your normal interaction with others.” (5)
To do so, we can cleanse ourselves, drop our old baggage, let go of our issues and upsets, forgive others as we’d like them to forgive us.
We’d be lightening our load, enlivening ourselves, breaking the self-imposed blocks on our mental and emotional capacities.
And let’s not do it just for and until this Ascension. Our overall journey is like taking a train from San Francisco to New York: In the Fifth Dimension, we’ve reached Reno. Let’s not stop. Don’t get off the train. Most of the journey lies ahead of us.
As is being said a lot these days, the best is, definitely, yet to come.
(1) Michael says we can go Home and re-emerge later. I’ve never heard that from classical sages. But how would they know? Very few of them even know of Sahaja Samadhi, our Ascension.
Only the Mother or an archangel, seraph, elohim, etc., would know.
