Part of my work as a communicator, according to Michael, is to work for human unity.
I’ve had a whole morning of human unity I’d like to share, which then progressed into a process of re-choosing the path of the lightworker rather than the lightholder.
I can’t remember the sequence of events, but it all started with me writing an article about the spectrum of consciousness and wanting to cite a passage from The Book of Nothing by Sosan. (1)
(I think you need to allow me to write stream of consciousness because the words are tumbling out.)
The quote I was looking for was on having no preferences. I went through the whole of The Book of Nothing (it’s a short book) and didn’t find it.
I remembered there were other translations of it online and that the quote may have come from one of those. (2) And eventually I found it.
But reading The Book of Nothing in several editions is what was important.
Passages which would have made no sense to me even two years ago made perfect sense now. As just descriptions of what’s so. I attribute this to the rising energies.
In the process of reading, I felt hypnotized by what I was hearing. Yes, yes, yes.
It awakened in me memories that were lost to me before. I kept saying to myself: A still mind? I know that. All is oneness? I’ve seen that in the Ocean of Love.
I saw how this operation for lightworkers may and can unfold. I experienced the process of remembering deep, mystical knowledge.
I felt such certainty over some things that I’d never even remembered until now that it surprised me. How can I feel so certain over something I’ve never considered before?
We’re looking at oneness here so let’s use that subject as an example.
Oneness exists on the Absolute level. When consciousness descends, it more and more clouds the spiritual senses and capabilities until oneness is not at all visible or sensible. Listen, if we’re starving and some food appears, there’s not much chance of oneness surviving at that moment on the Third/Fourth Dimension. Such is density where things like hunger and thirst exist.
As soon as we have higher-dimensional experiences, oneness becomes obvious. Whatever it is we’re all immersed in then is the same for all of us. Let’s call it love. And whatever the light it is that we all are, that also was one. An intelligent Light immersed in Love. And even that is only halfway up the Real Mountainc of the Absolute.
At this point I felt my consciousness expand in the face of what I was reading. It was reviving memories in me, of who I am.
I continued saying, I know that. I’ve experienced that. Not to the same degree or extent that either of these two worthy sages has, for sure, but on some level. I also have deeper memories from before this life that are also awakened.
As an aside, it also confirmed for me the hypothesis that we exist in higher circumstances than we may realize. We’re in Fifth Dimension now, I believe, but we think we’re in Third/Fourth and so the Fifth does not shine through. We continue to build the illusion of the Third/Fourth instead … in the Fifth. (3)
Matthew discussed this phenomenon some years ago about the Fourth:
“Although Earth and all of her residents are in fourth density location-wise, the majority of the populace still is within third density awareness-wise. ” (4)
That is exactly what I think is happening here and happening in a whole range of areas where we believe we are less than we are.
Here I am, reading a non-dual book and finding myself – a dedicated servant this lifetime – saying: I know that. I’ve experienced that. I understand that. I felt like a traitor to the Non-Dual.
Nonetheless, every time I said,” I know that,” a pre-arranged signal Michael and I have would go off. It went off again and again and again. I took that as his enthusiastic approval of getting in touch with this side of things.
I revelled in the non-dual teachings for most of the rest of the day. And then I knew full well I had to put the books aside. I honor what Michael said:
“[What is needed in lightwork] … is the middle ground [between unknowing and illumination]. …
“You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you. 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.” (5)
This felt to me like one of those points which, if I took the non-dual fork in the road, enlightenment would come but I’d leave lightwork for lightholding. I wouldn’t keep two feet on the ground. Which is not bad. It’s just not my soul contract.
The Mother made clear what would have happened, in the course of explaining why she toned down a fourth-chakra enlightenment experience:
“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!’” (6)
She’s absolutely right. Which explains why Michael would advise us lightworkers, on interdimensional travel, to “visit; don’t stay.” (7)
My agreement is to be a lightworker communicator, not a lightholder or lightholder communicator. (8)
Long story short, having put The Book of Nothing aside, I returned to research and writing. I’m a lightworker this lifetime, not a lightholder, as attractive and inevitable as that pathway is.
One of the stories about Lao-Tzu was that he was an archivist. He could practice and even teach the Tao and still work. I take that as inspiration.
There’s much I can borrow from what I learned today. I can certainly take inspiration from seeing that the destination is “no preferences.” I don’t need to go that far – and it’d be counterproductive if I did (9) – but it invites reducing my preferences and degree of attachment.
And I’ve been reminded of how oneness is plain to see and feel in higher dimensions and in the Transcendental. It just isn’t plain to see here where such things as hunger and thirst reinforce in us our seemingly-separate interests.

Michael discussed a slightly-different phenomenon with the same effect or result:
AAM: A very large quotient, shall we say, of you is living … in the higher-dimensional realm. Then there is a part of you that is in fact in the, shall we say, the morass of the chaos in the lower (for lack of a better term) dimensional realm because that is where the work is. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon Jan. 18, 2020.) [Hereafter AAM.]

(8) Divine Mother: You have chosen long long ago with Me, with Annastara [my twin flame], with ME KI AL, to be a communicator and an agent of change.
You have said to me, ‘Mother, what if they forget? I will remind them. I will communicate with them through words, through my passion, through my heart, through my knowing. I will communicate the love to them.’”
This is your task and it is a task of change as this planet, in this great chaos, in flux, chooses, yes, by this wonderful instrument of free will, as they choose and as you choose to simply be the love. It can have an infinite, literally infinite number of expressions. (Divine Mother in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, April 30, 2019.) [Hereafter DM.]
(9) I’d probably show up as distracted and I would be distracted, by my wish to behave appropriate to the non-dual.
Having my head “off in the clouds” would not be seen as appropriate.
I’d probably be asked to make a choice between becoming a monk or serving Ascension as a lightworker.
The same choice I see in reading these books.
