Further reflections on Matthew’s news of Jan. 3, 2023.
I asked Suzy to add her reflections as well, which I attach, below.
When I first became aware of spirituality, of spirits inside a body, of the universal laws, etc., I remember reading that, when a person becomes aware of there being a purpose to life (1) and laws like karma existing, (2) the path of their life begins to straighten out.
I know that to be true in my own experience, but what I want to look at here is the idea of the path itself straightening out.
Straightening out from what?
Before seeing what spiritualism, as we called it in those days, or spirituality, as we think of it today, teaches, we get mad and feel depressed and make amends and get along and have a fight and feel ticked off and closet ourselves and get lonely and make amends and….
We call this “life.”
I hope some of you recognize the cycle of conflict in this.
Around and around this cycle or circle or carousel we go, forever, as ibn Arabi said: “Sometimes [the human] rises; sometimes he goes low.” (3)
Sometimes we go up and sometimes we go down. Sometimes we feel love and sometimes we feel anger. Sometimes we’re generous and then at other times we’re stingy. We go up and down and up and down, creating karma and revisiting unfinished lessons.
That’s what makes the spiritual arc, from God to God, also a spiral. We return to the same karmic lessons again and again until we learn them.
Enter Ascension. I’m not focusing for the moment on our Ascension but on ascension generically.
“Sometimes he rises.” Sometimes he ascends or evolves. “Sometimes he goes low.” Sometimes he descends or devolves.
When spirituality enters the equation, we start to ascend more or less continually. With lots of pratfalls, but our path does straighten out.
Yes, we have further ground to cover before our planetary Ascension. But that does not mean we’re not ascending. Provided we choose the light-filled path, we’ll be ascending every day.
And, operationally, what does that mean? It means more and more love. Hey, never mind all the flavors of love. Without the basic ingredient – love – they’re all just spices It’s love that’s the sauce. It’s love that gives it its smoothness, its full body and basic taste.
So, yes, we’ve been given the bad news. We need to experience to completion whatever arises as a result of it. Perhaps look up the upset clearing process (4) and apply it till the upset lifts.The troops will not be home by Christmas. Major disappointment. Major revision of outlook.
And, when we’ve been with that until it lifts, let’s get back to work ascending.
Finally, ascension is always a personal affair. YOU either ascend or you don’t. If you don’t ascend now, you’ll ascend later. This is not a competition. This is the One Journey we all make. (5)
Moreover, every day you’re ascending. And then one day, as you ascend, an experience is triggered (Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi) which “fixes” your consciousness in a greatly-expanded experience of love. You have just ascended.
Because the planet en masse has to wait before ascending, in my opinion, does not mean you have to. If it’s in your soul contract to lead the way, then I say go ahead. Show us the ascended human. Model it. Demonstrate it.
And right now this is wartime. What bigger opportunity could have presented itself for us to apply what we’re learning as we ascend, like selfless service to others and caring for the afflicted.
The door is wide open for anyone individually to ascend. Taking the planet with us may take a little longer.
Earth is on a steady ascension course location-wise regardless of what Netanyahu and Velensky and a lot of other front and center evildoers do. Regardless of what lightworkers do. Regardless of whether weather is technology or Nature.
It was the massive light sent to the planet from highly-evolved civilizations that let it start ascending location-wise. It will complete its ascension when it reaches high fifth density.
Personal ascension is individual, internal and continues until the soul returns to Creator Source.
Both kinds of ascension involve light. How much light is in the choices each person makes. Light-love is the same energy.
All the time Earth was descending from fifth density and stuck in low third, Gaia remained fifth-density in evolutionary status.
