In the course of other research, I came across this quote from Sri Ramakrishna in which he talks about giving Swami Vivekananda an experience, probably of seventh-chakra enlightenment or perhaps a truncated higher experience.
“Now the Mother has shown you everything. But this revelation will remain under lock and key, and I shall keep the key. When you have accomplished the Mother’s work you will find the treasure again.” (1)
That’s the first reference I can recall in which a master acknowledges this level of management of enlightenment experiences. And it’s the first in which I’ve seen a master telling a lightworker to finish his service contract first.
I’ve touched on the matter of the toning down of experiences in passing but I’d like to look at it in more depth here because I think it’s a matter that all lightworkers may wish to consider: Our service contracts determine what level of enlightenment we’re able to achieve while still in service.
Don’t panic. You’re already higher dimensional or you wouldn’t be here and you certainly wouldn’t be reading this.
Why do they truncate our experiences? Simple.
Archangel Michael: 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. (2)
The Mother said the same:
“If you had seen the light as it actually is – 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!’” (3)
Michael went on to discuss the matter at more length:
“It is not to say that you will not experience [higher states], but you cannot (well, you can if you wish; it is a choice to) simply remain in that state of unity, of One, or be fully conscious, [and be] in service, in action….
“So, it is a toning down, if anything. It really is the middle ground. …
“You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you [because lightworkers are higher dimensional]. It is yours to access. But if you are in service, you will not choose to live there. …
“You can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground.” (4)
That’s the first reason why our experiences may be toned down. The second reason is one we lightworkers share in common with everyone: We need to be given only as much as we can take without getting discombobulated.
Michael discusses that here:
“You have been given bite-sized pieces of energy, of energy bumps, of input of what you can digest and handle and truly bring to fruition. If you are in the process of expansion, you don’t go from Grade 3 to a PhD in a week.” (5)
At the same as we’re being kept with our feet on the ground, we’re being given enough of all we need to do the job, Michael assured me.
Steve: But we will have enough to do the job, enough smarts, enough heart…
Archangel Michael: Think of it as growing every day. Then you are given more responsibility, more allowance, and more cooperation. You begin to fully see us and engage with us. Many of the Masters return. So that you’re given all that you need to expand like a flower blossoming. (6)
