All we are at one level of reality, as I’ve experienced, is a point of awareness in a sea of love. (1)
Michael referred to that state when he described us re-emerging from the heart of One:
“When you go home, … you can reunite in the heart of One. … [After a rest] you go back out into the universe as a brilliant spark of pure light!” (2)
On another level of reality, I know myself to be a spirit inside this physical body, pulling the levers and directing the journey. (3)
The point of awareness is nested inside a multitude of bodies each allowing me access to life at a different level of reality.
My astral form is inside this physical body allowing me access to the physical level of reality. I presume it’s the same with all the other bodies, each allowing me access to life at a certain level.
The lower level provides a container for the individual, allowing it access. It also imposes limits on the higher-level being such as a loss of psychic powers and memory.
Before we incarnate, the higher level provides the context and rough outline for everything that transpires on the lower level.
For example, we map out what we intend to accomplish and design our bodies and lives to accomplish those ends. Our incarnations therefore have a purpose defined by our higher-dimensional selves.
When we emerge from that incarnation, we shed the limitations the lower level imposed and find ourselves again in the unlimited context of love and the divine states, which are the flavors of love and which we temporarily left.
For all intents and purposes, there’s always a level higher. As the Divine Mother said: “There is always more, more delight, more bliss, greater wisdom, more understanding, more compassion, more love.” (4)
There’s always a being who has assumed a body on a lower level for learning or service. Until there’s not. (5)
So why, at any one moment, can I not choose to be the context rather than the container? Instead of withdrawing into a lower level of consciousness when stressed, why not withdraw into a higher?
If so much of my thinking has already gone out the window to date and so much more is destined to follow it, why not let it all go and withdraw into the higher realm of love, rather than follow the lower “reptilian brain”? Been there, done that, and spent a lifetime escaping the resulting bad choices!
If I add to this knowledge the knowledge that we live forever and that I’m not going to escape the carousel by dying this time, then the desire to opt for the higher way of being rather than hang out any longer in the lower increases.
I don’t have to be here, in suffering and misery. The power lies within me – and I say that on several levels of meaning – to live a profoundly happy life. That is my destination.
