What’s Basic Here?. via SteveBeckow.com by Steve Beckow
We were told by SaLuSa on Sept. 12 that “once we can get started, you will find yourselves on a bit of a roller-coaster ride.” (1) We seem to be already on that roller-coaster ride.
Spaceships are circling the planet. Economies are falling. A new economy is waiting to be born. Conflict is breaking out around the world. Nations and armies are standing up to their erstwhile masters. Arrests are said to be occurring. No one knows if an attack these days is the elite attacking or being attacked. In every area of light work, new initiatives are beginning, new coalitions forming, new knowledge coming to light. All is a whirlwind of activity.
At times like this, to ground my being, I ask myself: What is basic? What never changes? What is this all about?
While Ascension itself is basic, any one Ascension is not. There are always more Ascensions. When I asked AA Michael what my next assignment was, on the private part of the tape I made with him, he told me of another Ascension, a higher Ascension, happening after this one. On another occasion he had this to say about an even grander Ascension than that:
“There are many levels and stages of Ascension. …
“Ultimately, we will experience the universal Ascension process together. This phase of Ascension will take place in the far-distant future; however, we in the higher realms of existence have had glimpses of this prodigious cosmic event and, we assure you, it is so magnificently complex and awe-inspiring that it is beyond your present comprehension.” (2)
Ascension is basic because it is one mechanism of a return to God and a return to God is basic. Regarding ever more enlightenments, each more basic, Franklin Merrell-Woolf once testified.
“A certain Sage…, speaking of unfolded Consciousness above the level of the highest human Adepts, said: ‘We attain glimpses of Consciousness so Transcendent, rising level upon level, that the senses fairly reel before the awe-inspiring Grandeur.’”
“Here, certainly, is space for evolution far beyond the highest possibility of man as man.” (3)
“Truly, within the Infinite there are Mysteries within Mysteries, Deeps beyond Deeps, Grandeurs beyond Grandeurs. …
“Mystery of Mysteries, reaching inward and outward, but ever Beyond! And from that Beyond ever there come new whisperings of other imponderable Glories. Ah! How little is this world at the beginning of the Trail, barely a point in a Space of unlimited dimensions!” (4)
When Alfred Lord Tennyson was enlightened by a Seraph on the shores of Africa, Tennyson fell on his face and the angel picked him up. What the angel said is instructive.
“With ministering hand [the seraph] rais’d me up:
Then with a mournful and ineffable smile,
Which but to look on for a moment fill’d
My eyes with irresistible sweet tears…
“‘There is no mightier Spirit than I to sway
The heart of man: and teach him to attain
By shadowing forth the Unattainable….’” (5)
The One is so far above us, the way to It is so long, that we may as well consider It “the Unattainable.” Implicit in this statement is that, for even this mighty being who stands in the face of God, there are yet more Ascensions.
Knowing our own true nature is more basic than anything that is happening at this moment or will happen tomorrow, or tomorrow, with the exception of Ascension.
God and the knowing of God are basic. The rest of this, as grand and exciting as it may be, is just a passing show, whether it be war or peace, loss or salvation, the pit of despair or the heights of elation.
We are here to know the One. We are here to know ourselves. We and the One are the same. And all of this show is simply here to reveal to us our own true nature, That.
When things get as busy as they are now, because people are awakening, rising up, refusing and embracing, I remind myself that, as glorious as it is, it serves only my own personal awakening, and your own personal awakening, and the awakening of us all. Not an awakening to 2012, not even an awakening to only one particular Ascension, as if it were the end-all and be-all, but a full and complete awakening to our own true Self. There is nothing else that’s happening here but a sleep and an awakening.
So don’t be swept away by the busy-ness of the moment. Don’t lose your grip on things. The rush and roar is not what’s happening here. It’s as much a passing show as a storm of a half-day’s duration. There’s something more basic happening here, and that’s your own deepest awakening. Hold fast to that.
See that as what’s happening. Sink down deeply into that. Let all of this, as chaotic and insane as it may seem, serve that.
