Have you ever asked yourself the question as to what could possibly be holding you back with regards to ascension?
I'm certain that many of you reading this will tell themselves that they want to "ascend" at some point in their future, perhaps sooner rather than later. I'm also pretty certain that many of you reading this believe that they are on their way towards this auspicious goal called "ascension". Some of you probably equate this to something that happens to you personally and is achieved through personal work, while most of you reading this probably believe ascension is something that is going to happen on a "planetary", "cosmic" or even "universal" scale.
While I am pretty convinced of these statements, I am one hundred percent guaranteed certain that about 99.99 percent of people reading this blog are not aware that they are in fact a hindrance to their own evolutionary path, as far as ascension is concerned.
So, have you? Asked yourself, I mean?
What - if anything - is holding you back when it comes to your "goal" called "ascension"?
In my opinion, and from the perspective of ascended life, I believe there are many things that hold people back when ascension no longer is being considered as a theoretical concept but when ascended life appears in your life and actually offers you the option as a practical - and achievable - goal. But, the story that I am about to share with you, universal as it may be, beyond the shadow of a doubt discusses the most powerful stumbling block of all:
Imagine someone who has never left their home town - not for one day of her life - but has always dreamed of visiting Hawaii, which she only knows through television, magazines, and the internet. Then, one day, a travelled Hawaiian visits her town and she gets to know this person. He tells her stories of Hawaii and seeing how excited she is about the place he offers to take her there. Her heart skips a beat and she full-heartedly screams a resounding YES! to this idea.
It takes a little organisation, but before you know it, here comes the day of the big trip! As the Hawaiian gets out of his car and walks up to her driveway ready to pick her up, all of a sudden it hits her: she's afraid to leave town. Not only has her family (brothers, sisters, parents, grandparents and even her adult child) convinced her that it is dangerous to travel that far, but when they realised this was probably not going to stop her, they took things to the next level by calling on her many friends, all of which played the "conditional card" by telling her that they can't believe she would be so selfish as to skip town all on her own and leave all of them - even her child! - behind! After she breaks down, they tell her how much they love her now that she has truly shown her love for her family...
...and so, before her front door is even fully open, the Hawaiian can tell that something is the matter; in fact, something seems to be terribly wrong. It doesn't surprise him when she explains that she simply cannot go to Hawaii, no matter how much she would love to; not right now, anyway. But she will definitely visit him one day, that she promises - and she is a woman of her word so she will not break this promise, he can trust her on that. Look, she tells him, how open my heart is. Can't you see? He nods in agreement, but he knows that her true heart is closed once more to be replaced by the copy she believes to be real.
At first, the Hawaiian tries to change her mind, trying to re-mind her of how much she would love to travel to Hawaii, how this has been her life long dream, how in fact she said to him that if she did not go soon she would die!
Nothing works, her mind is made up, and - as he is still at the door because she won't let him in, given that her family is in the living room enjoying cake and drinks and playing Monopoly - the Hawaiian shares with her some of the myth of his people, he explains to her how her mind works, that there is a matrix connecting all minds together in an attempt to keep the status quo that she has adhered to all her life, mostly unknowingly so. He wants to continue to tell her that there is a way out of this, but she cuts him off, angry that he would even suggest such a thing! How could he tell her that she is being manipulated, she is a free being, with free will, and she makes her own choices... no one manipulates her, thank you very much. A moment passes between them, unspoken, after which she continues to say that he, the Hawaiian, is the one manipulating her... and has been all along! Why did he even come to her town in the first place? Get out and leave me be, she says, and closes the door.
He tries one more time by stopping the door with his foot, preventing it from closing, and looks at her with his heart wide open. Tears welling up in her eyes, she whispers a silent "I am sorry, I just can't, not now. Things are simply too complicated, I have too much going on..." And she closes the door again, permanently this time. For her, this is the first time meeting the Hawaiian. For him, it has been a million times, he realises that she does not remember as her mind matrix keeps resetting their meetings, making her relive that same situation over and over again, as though it were for the first time.
As the Hawaiian gets into his car and starts to drive away from town, towards the airport, he thinks back to a time when he was not so unlike her. It takes him back thousands of years, to his own flesh-and-blood family, and how they tried to talk him out of leaving. But his soul had to move, there was no other way for him, and he knew that, ultimately, if he did not listen to the calling, it would signify his physical - and perhaps even his spiritual - death. He remembers the many conversations and the diverse ways in which they tried to stop him. The story is always the same, although the methods might be different in each individual case.
Now in the airplane, flying high above the world, as he witnesses the magical isles getting closer, he thinks back to her, and he pities her, compassionately so. Oh, how she would have loved to experience this, the Hawaiian thinks, and a tear falls from his eye, right on to the center of his chest, where his fire always burns. He remembers more now, how he was so much like her at that very early age in his existence, now longer ago than any man or woman can even remember as myth. Like her, he too did not realise the web of mind during those countless invitations he received, and how he fooled himself over and over and over again, thinking that he could adapt "ascension" to his own so-called free will.
If only he could have had a chance to tell her about the split between her personality and the real her, the latter of which currently was fast asleep, unbeknownst to her, and how her entire environment - even her entire life stream - was designed by this matrix to create the circumstances, people, places, things and events around her that without a fault would make it so that she would make the same choice for a linear and finite existence over and over again. How could he tell her that, in fact, this is what she had been doing for many years already?
If only, he wished, he could tell her that the circumstances, people, places, things and events surrounding her work like a reflective sort of mirror-web, with parameters and settings that were cleverly created to make her stay caught in the same loop, over and over again. But how could he explain these things to someone who did not want to listen? It filled him with frustration, which was another trap, he knew, and so he let it go.
But it did not stop his thoughts of her, for he knew that soon, he would find himself traveling in the other direction once again, trying to reach her anew - because maybe next time she might find that crack inside of her mind and open it wide up. If she did that, he knew, that she would see and feel for herself that her personality life was a sham designed to keep her stuck and connected. It would give her the larger insight into the whole, he knew, and into the time stream that was her life and her multiple lives, then she would see the most shocking truth of all - and the most painful for those caught in the matrix web: that, no matter how much she would love the circumstances, places, things, events, and especially the people around her, ultimately at the end of their lives that love would be cut from them, removed from their memory, as they would be reset and reinserted - reincarnated she calls it - into the matrix, with no memory of who they once were to one another, or of the love they shared.
If the crack of consciousness would open wide enough, she would realise that this metaphorical trip called "going to Hawaii" would be the only way for her to make sure that she would become an infinite being, and once she was done with that, she could invite them to do the same, as he did for her time and time again, and that in this way their love would never be linear, never be finite, never be broken.
Yes, he thought, one day, his daughter would come home with him again.
The biggest and most prevalent "thing" that holds people locked into theoretical but not practical/personal ascension, then, is their personality-based lives.
Yes, by that I mean everything, everyone, that surrounds them, be it friends, family, lovers or colleagues: it is this exact web of connections that keeps the personality within the boundaries of parameters designed by the matrix control system so as to ensure the narrowing of these parameters over time, ultimately causing the physical body to die, the personality to be deleted, the soul to be reincarnated and the entire lifecycle to be reset. When one is in this type of environment, one cannot "ascend" as the personality settings, likes and dislikes, cannot be let go of. It is the principle of the sheep herding the sheep, or one mind keeping the other in check, locked in, or, rather, locked away.
This, then, is the biggest trigger to stop one from entering personal ascension and leaving the linear-finite existence behind. The personality life and the people, things and events surrounding it is in effect the paralysing agent that keeps the soul from screaming out as it is made to suffer the linear-finite loop over and over again. It can be seen as a sort of poison that is injected into the full soul beingness in such a way that it stops its struggle to break free and accepts the status quo, knowing full well it is on its way to certain death and continued torture after that. The only reason the poison can have this effect is because it puts the fractured soul entity into a type of dream state, causing a situation of "cognitive dissonance" if you will, in which it does not realise that it is, in truth, being eaten alive. It even allows this to happen willingly and would attack anyone that tells it that it is under attack or anyone attempting to remove the parasite.
So, I come back to my initial question: just how connected are YOU?
What is stopping you from ascension?
What if, tomorrow, an ascended master teacher came into your life and gave you the choice to go with her, "into the West." Would you, indeed, take her hand, knowing that the only way to achieve your "ascension" goal would be to engage on a journey to universes unknown?
Would you be willing to not only let go of your things that surround you, but also the people, places, and events that "made you what you are today" as they say?
Would you be ready to understand that your entire life is a trap designed to keep you from achieving your soul's ultimate goal?
And would you be strong enough to see that this is it, the lifetime that connects all your other lifetimes, giving you the power of your entire soul once again, the lifetime that was designed by you and for you to see through the veil just enough to find within yourself the power to actually let go this time?
If this is you, then it is time to lay your personality to sleep and let awaken within your heart, within the center of your chest, your belly and your pineal gland, the being that you came here to be, this time around, the one that ascends and reunites all the pieces again as one.
It is up to you, now, to know and understand how the web of entanglement works, and that ultimately the conditional forms of love, joy, and freedom will cause pain and destruction at their linear and ultimately finite end. When you understand this and fully can see through it, the choice for "ascension" becomes the choice for unconditional, universal, infinite love, joy, freedom, truth and infinite life, where you no longer have to give up your connections at the end of your life, because there won't be any end.
Ascension is the only way to ensure that this can be your fate and that of your loved ones. And the first step you take is to let go and go on your journey, which in the end will lead you full circle, right back where you left off, so that you can help those that you left behind in order to achieve the necessary tools to be of assistance to them and to all of Mankind. As such, the path and the Great Work truly requires of you, to boot, that you do not think about things in a linear fashion as your mind would have you, but that you instead can see the cyclical nature of reality - indeed this is the first piece of knowledge to apply if you are going to attempt a journey as non-linear and infinite as is "ascension".
You will require training, guidance and tuition from those that have gone before. There are many things to learn, and everything that you thought you knew, to forget. It has been done by many before you and it can be done by you as well. That is why we are here. I won't lie to you: the road to ascension can be long, and there will be a lot to learn, in fact the entire duration of this path called "ascension" is based upon your willingness to be and emit the internal attributes of love, joy, freedom, truth and life no matter your external situations, its intensity will be based on your ability to easily let go of that which you once thought to be you, the personality/mind/ego complex, and with that all of your likes and dislikes, all of your parameters and belief systems, will come into question and then they will come to an end, so that the real you, not the designed-by-matrix-You, will call the shots. And that, in truth, is just the start of it all.
Let's make this the year that you no longer allow yourself to be held back, ever again. Stop thinking of ascension as some sort of new age pipe dream that is sweetener for the awakened masses, and you will realise why ascended life is here and why it is imperative to be guided and assisted out of the maze of mind and the control system matrix.
Ascension doesn't just happen on its own, just because you want it. It is a study, a deep-field study indeed, that has existed throughout time and space on every level of reality as a way to truly apply your free will and disconnect from the web of matrix mind.
And do not forget: even after reading all of this, you might very likely be "made" to think that "yes, you can go it alone, do it by yourself" and that this is free will, that "ascended life is old school and in this new energy we will do things differently"... but be sure to see and remember that these thoughts are linear in nature, and again are designed to keep you on the treadmill, until you run out of steam, because your entire energy called "this lifetime" will have been consumed by the very system that told you that you were a free, and sovereign, human being. Can you understand that there is a level "above and beyond" these thoughts, and that this is where this blog of mine, today, is intended to make you reach, and stay there, permanently, as the infinite creator that you are?
It is time for you to disentangle from this matrix and ascend it.
So, how connected are you? And are you, perhaps now, prepared to do something about that?
The only way forward is to disconnect from the personality and reconnect to your totality... and to experience this while on Earth, during this lifetime via the Mer-ka-ba and other means. It is a path for the brave-hearted, which only presents itself to you when you are truly ready to do something about your matrix situation and not just believe that you are on your ascension path merely by thinking it and following new age trends, no matter how appealing they may be.
If this is you, then, dear One, Your Teacher awaits, in a metaphysical land beyond hierarchy, beyond illusion, beyond thought, between the heartbeats, because that is where you exist. You have the power to manifest this space, right here, in your world.
Where in time and space, or beyond, would You like to go first?
I Am Kwan Yin
and I Be-Love in You
