Think about this for a moment.
Spiritual teachers in past ages looked upon enlightenment as a precious gift, more precious than anything we can imagine. It happened to 1 person in … 1,000? 100,000? 1,000,000?
Ascension (Sahaja Samadhi)? (1) It occurred only for a fraction of the numbers I just cited, as Sri Krishna tells us:
Who cares to seek
For that perfect freedom?
One man, perhaps,
In many thousands. ….
Then tell me how many
Of those who seek freedom
Shall know the total
Truth of my being?
Perhaps one only. (2)
More modern voices? Sri Brahmananda: “Only one in a million sincerely longs for God, and few sustain that longing.” (3)
A Christian voice? Jesus: “Many are called, but few are chosen.” (4) Many receive God’s calling card in the first experience of enlightenment (a heart opening) but few persist, given the density and lack of knowledge at the time, to arrive at the finish line and “be chosen.”
Only a few? Not this lifetime.
Now all that is different. We’re at the end of one age (the Piscean Age, the Kali Yuga, or Iron Age) and the beginning of another (the Aquarian Age, the Sat Yuga, the Golden Age). (5)
The density is rapidly lifting. We await the Ring of Fire, which will result in a planetary heart opening. That will answer everyone’s questions about how rebuilding the world will be possible. Jesus described it here:
Jesus: We are approaching the Grand Finale of this stage in your awakening process [i.e., the Ring of Fire]. It is not the Magnificent and most Wondrous Event of the Great Awakening in all its glory [i.e., Ascension], but it will be the most exciting and uplifting event that humanity has ever experienced. …
Heart-centered consciousness is the state [you will then experience] in which, as humans, you feel only love for all life, knowing that you are one with all life, and in which you love and accept yourselves in your human forms without any reservations whatever, knowing, as you most definitely will, that you are following your divinely-guided path Home to Reality, and that all that occurs is part of the grand design you planned for yourselves before incarnating into form. (6)
That says it all.
Until this planet has had its Ring of Fire or heart opening, so that all the world has been introduced to this love, we may find we’re following the example of our caveman ancestors (war, oppression, selfishness) more often than our higher-dimensional star family (peace, assistance, selflessness).
Back to our topic. Years ago, very few people became enlightened. Very few were the slightest bit interested. But now we are.
The ages are changing. The love energies being beamed to the planet are lifting the density from us.
Where are these energies coming from? The Mother tells us:
Divine Mother: Normally, [Light] would come from me to my realms, to the dominions, to the seraphim, to the archangels, etc., to the masters, to your guardians, and then to you. But that is why each of you is shining like a star with many facets. You are being bombarded by all of us. You see, there is no shortage of what I have to share. (7)
Now we can add in the light being beamed to us most recently, by higher-dimensional civilizations, which is credited with saving the Earth. (8)
In the face of this, people are waking up to the Company of Heaven’s message, Saul tells us:
“The Tsunami of Love is flooding the world over and over again, and more and more of you are accepting its loving embrace and choosing to engage with the world around you lovingly instead of fearfully, and that is a massive change in attitude and intent.
“Those of you who read and channel this kind of spiritual material are increasing in numbers daily, and the effect of your loving individual energy fields is shared and felt planet-wide. What you are all doing, sometimes without knowing it, is bringing into effect the essential changes that are leading to humanity’s inevitable and unstoppable mass awakening.” (9)
The Internet is spreading the word. There’s no need to travel to a distant country and sit at the feet of the masters. The masters have come to us in podcasts via the Internet.
(To be concluded in Part 2, below.)
(1) Steve Beckow: I’m trying to understand what level of enlightenment Ascension corresponds to and I think it’s beyond the normal seventh-chakra enlightenment. I think it is what is called — and I’ll make this clear to readers — sahaja samadhi. Am I correct?
Divine Mother: Yes, it is beyond what you think of [as being] with your seven chakras. … We have emerged from the Third-Dimensional realm, which is that reference point for the [seven] chakra system, into the new. So yes, you are correct, in this question and in this statement.
