I’d like to reprint an article from 2022 that puts the whole matter succinctly.
No one “knows” what God is. I imagine only God does.
The way I see the One, the Creator, Source, is as Intelligent Love.
I use the words “Intelligence,” “Consciousness,” and “Awareness” as synonyms.
I use the terms “Father,” “Mother,” and “One” as synonyms as well, in the following way: Imagine that I’m a passenger in a car. I blow up a balloon half full and then twist it in the middle to make two.
I then place “one” balloon outside the car above the window glass and roll up the window. That means that the “first” balloon is outside now and the “second” balloon is inside.
We then drive around for an hour in the rain, stop the car, and look at the “two” balloons. The one outside the car has rain drops, leaves, and other residue on it. The one inside is pristine clean. They look different because of this.
Now, we clean off the residue, untwist the “two,” and, lo and behold, they reveal themselves as One balloon!
The Mother is the outside “balloon” (the active side of God) and the Father the inside (the passive side of God), but they remain One.
Each time we ascend to a new dimension, we’re untwisting the balloon a little more.
Following a lifetime of trying to put the matter in an understandable way, that’s the best I’ve come up with.
I will never stop trying to describe the indescribable, as Michael suggested, in relation to the heart this time:
Steve: The heart is another one of those things that is very difficult to define or understand or communicate.
Archangel Michael: But you will keep trying.
Steve: I know – a thousand words – but I will keep trying.
AAM: Because it is the essential work. It is the essential message for humans to truly come to understand who they are. (1)
We often talk about the fulfilling, connecting, and rejuvenating aspects of Intelligent Love. Here is Michael doing so:
Archangel Michael: Now, does [this love] fill you? Does it restore you? Does it nourish you? Does it alter you? Does it change you? Does it give you that evolutionary jump? Yes. It nourishes you, but it also clears you out. In some ways, it will purge many of your remaining illusions.” (2)
I guess then it’s no surprise to be saying “I’m feeling more loving these days” and at the same time say, “all my issues are up.”
This higher form of love will in time be here. Don’t despair. Was it God through Matthew this past week who said this chaos is only a clearing away of debris. (3)
But we seldom talk about love’s intelligent aspects.
Love is constantly flowing. It’s only our vibrations that are not refined enough that prevent us from regularly experiencing the love that constantly flows in the higher realms Our higher-dimensional sisters and brothers experience it moment by moment, day by day, forever.
This love they feel knows who is open to it or not. It goes where it’s needed.
The minute we try to confine it, it disappears. It has a mind of its own: it’s intelligent.
I was handed the answer to my needs maybe seven years ago. It’s been right here under my nose all this time. And I grow to appreciate that more each year.
That flow of love? It’s accessible through the higher-dimensional door that we all have, called the hridayam, the heart aperture or portal. We access it by the imaginative use of our breath.
Imagine that your heart door is open and that by using your breath you can draw up the higher-dimensional, transformative, transfigurative love that flows behind it.
On your in-breath, draw love up from your heart.
Remember: Love must flow so what are you going to do with it?
On your out-breath, send it out to the entire world. We get to experience it as it passes through us, as Michael points out here:
Archangel Michael: Love is the energy of the universe. It is the energy of the Mother. And it moves constantly, continually, eternally, infinitely. So, to have an experience of love, it [must move] through you. (4) [My emphasis.]
Michael told me after the heart opening on March 13, 2015 that doing this breathing exercise primed the pump for the heart opening.
Archangel Michael: So what you do when you bring the love up and out, when you begin to send, to share, it is as if you have in fact activated what we call the wellspring. The visual you may think of is the volcano.
It is not that you empty out. It is that you discover that that wellspring is SO full and overflowing that it is a steady stream. That steady stream does not ever, ever (think of what I say!)… it never has to cease!
The feeling, the experience – because it is so much more than a feeling – the knowingness is actually very simple. It is love. In that, there are the elements of joy, of peace, of calm, of serenity…of simply being.
This occurs, not merely because you have asked for it, (5) but because you (and this does apply to the collective) have done your, can we say, your homework, your due diligence. What we mean by this is simply, think of it in spatial reality, time and space reality: you have created the space for this [energy of love] to, not only pass by you like a passing breeze or a rain, but to anchor within you because there is a sense of this spaciousness within thee. (6)
Once we’re in that love, problems become simply situations. Why? Because we lose our attachment to the outcome. We already have the eternally-sought-after goal in life: To love and be loved as fully as can be.
Archangel Michael: So there is forward thrust and movement into this higher-dimensional understanding of who you are. And, yes, it begins and it ends with – it always comes back to – the heart. You know this. (7)
I most certainly do.
