Steve Beckow – Learning To Laugh A Lot – 27 March 2012

Well, anyone who listened to An Hour with an Angel March 26, 2012 can probably see that the angelic kingdom was a subject which Archangel Michael very much wished to discuss. Geoff West suggested that I do the next show on it as well and kindly gave up his prerogative to hosting it.

I said that AAM only answered four of the twenty questions I had. I suppose that doesn’t quite convey the whole picture. I had the chance to ask only four questions but, in the course of answering them, he answered many of the others as well.

But how much can one cover in an hour? It’s great that we’ll have a chance to continue the discussion next week. I thank Geoff for that gentlemanly act.

The tussle that goes on when we present our knowledge, in this case, to an angel and get their feedback is such a necessary part of the “getting to know you” phase of our meeting the Company of Heaven. Because, as far as I can see, we don’t know them. We  really don’t. In fact for centuries we’ve been fashioning them in our own image and they’ve been obliging us by showing up in shapes we’d understand.

We don’t know what they look like. We don’t know how they think – or even if they think. We don’t know how they feel. And when I say “they” I mean the galactics as well as the celestials.

AAM said he could be in a million places at once. And when I asked him further about that, he not only didn’t blink, but he compared it to our habit of thinking about many things at once, only more concrete and real. Obviously he really does mean that he can indeed be in a million places at once. What kind of a being can do that?

Can anyone please give me a five-minute talk on the subject? No one?  But isn’t that it? We know nothing about these beings, these exalted guests who are coming to dinner.

I don’t think there’s a great deal we know about anything that is about to be revealed to us. For instance, I assumed that all the ascended masters came from the Fifth Dimension. What a foolish assumption! It’s quite clear that they come from many higher dimensions. Sanat Kumara comes from the Eleventh apparently, according to him. That surprised me. If he had said Twentieth, I would not have batted an eye.

But then AAM himself has said that there are only twelve dimensions in the human range of experience and that again surprises me. The only way I can reconcile shrinking down the human range of experience into twelve planes is if those planes have many subplanes. So I can neither win on my shorting the masters or overshooting the dimensions.  All my knowledge is like dust in the wind.

That is perhaps forty years of research down the proverbial drain. If I can bear up and smile under these circumstances, I think anyone can.

AAM did verify that the realms or kingdoms that the early church fathers ascribe to the angels – angels and archangels on up to cherubim and seraphim – are accurate. I was reassured that one bit of knowledge survived. But not much else did.

Chief among my own theories that bit the dust was my comfortable assumption that we learned all we needed to and graduated from the 3rd to the 4th, all we needed to and graduated from the 4th to the 5th, and so on. AAM called this theory of spiritual evolution “linear” and said it was in no way true. He pointed out that one could drop back to the 3rd and learn what one needed from service to progress to a higher dimension. Well, doesn’t that describe most of us Starseeds?

Welcome to a world in which practically all of what we take for granted is undoubtedly going to be scrapped. Welcome to a world in which it just

may turn out that we are revealed as … gosh, I hate to say it but, well … undeveloped?  We may have a lot to learn and a lot to unlearn.

Perhaps we’ve all seen movies in which one character is eager to learn and tosses one way of being out as one would throw off a hat and dons another.  That way of managing things may be the very best adaptive skill in our toolbox.  Our world is about to become suddenly strange to us. We’ll be strangers in paradise for sure. Strangers in our own house. I imagine the galactics are busily figuring out extra-diplomatic ways to make this experience maximally comfortable for us. I predict that they will be super-polite and super-deferent, when in fact it’s we who should be those ways.

I’m eager and I also have icicles in my stomach. Humility, constraint, respect are all going to be very valuable qualities in copious amounts. There’ll be no place to run, no place to hide. Perhaps that’s why, in a recent talk to a project team I’m on, AAM said that the most important tool of successfully getting through the next phase of life is remembering how to laugh.  To laugh a lot and to laugh at ourselves.

So here’s to a guy whose theories of spiritual evolution brought a laugh from an archangel. There will be many more of those moments. No sense trying to make a name for yourself in the period that lies ahead of us. We’re all on our way back to kindergarten and our most sophisticated operations may look to the galactics and celestials like mere finger-painting. Might as well enjoy ourselves and avoid taking ourselves seriously. And learn to laugh a lot. link to original article
