I once suggested that the human process was “I needa to bea; I gotta but it’s notta.” (1)
I still hold to that formula.
The longing for liberation, which I’ve discussed elsewhere, (2) leaves us wanting, hankering at a low level of vibration: I needa to bea.
We try to fill it with houses and yachts and cars and vacations, but still the longing persists (I gotta but it’s notta).
The way life is designed, nothing can fill that longing for God but God.
Some people try to fill that void, that longing with money, sex, and power.
Everyone who’s looked to money for happiness has been disappointed. What the Beatles sang long ago remains true:
What we want, if we were to use a spiritual magnifying glass, we’d find to be that same love and the other divine states. These cannot be bought.
Moreover, the best human experience has to offer – orgasm in sex – is like a candle compared to the enjoyment of bliss and ecstacy.
And power … the Divine Mother had this to say about that:
Divine Mother: It is painful for a being that seeks power for themselves or power over another, whether it is a parent over a child, a husband over a wife, a man over an army. It matters not. The yearning [for], the exercise of control never gives joy. The pain simply grows. And so the actions become more grotesque, larger, until the breakdown is and has [been] and will be occurring. (2)
We become what Buddhists call “hungry ghosts,” going from incarnation to incarnation seeking worldly objects and experiences, which don’t satisfy for long.
Supposing we’re powerful and rich and attractive, all of which we’ve gained pale for us when the longing for liberation arises again and keep us moving forward in quest of … we know not what.
But all the while our support team (our guides, archangel, and the Mother) draws us onward.
They may give us an experience of a divine state and, when they do, it reveals itself as so much more satisfying than any worldly thing. At that point we tend to drop our worldly aspirations and seek more of what we’ve just been shown – love, joy, bliss, peace, etc.
Now, exactly when we’ve found something truly valuable and desirable and let go of our attachment to money and power, we now become much more useful in working with them!
Whether we acknowledge the workings of the divine mechanisms, they steer us just the same, always in the direction. of God, godliness, the divine states, etc.
It’s a wonderful day when we discover that, when we long for God, we enter into the very states that we sought out by pursuing money, sex, and power. We feel entirely satisfied. We experience states that unfold deeper and deeper – without any relationship to money, sex, and power.
And life proceeds by our responding to the longing with one plan, one effort after another falling short, after which we try again. Until at last our efforts hit upon the jackpot – a confirming spiritual experience – or the Divine Mother rewards our efforts with a taste of the divine states.
And all of it a leela – a divine play – the goal of which is that God should meet God in a moment of our enlightenment. (3)
When we relax into the way the stream of life flows, we end up satisfied, fulfilled, grateful. Anything less does not satisfy or fulfill.
Sometimes it takes lifetimes of trial and error to see the way it all works. And sometimes we’re shown it all in a flash. (4)

(4) Archangel Michael acknowledges that he does and will inspire financial stewards. This is an example of being shown it all in a flash:
Archangel Michael: One of the things we do is we also plant the longer view, so that a person who is involved in a highly complex situation — which this is, by the way; because it is not just about money; it is not just about currency; it is about values — in key people we will plant the longer view.
We will inspire, if you wish to use that word, the longer view so that they have, like a flash of lightning, the understanding and all the steps to what can be accomplished many steps out if they simply do A, B, C and D.
