In the midst of a feeling of Divine Bliss which I had reached once again earlier today after some frustrations had passed, while accepting friend requests on FaceBook Michael asked me to stop what I was doing and take a message for him… Well, I learned long ago that even though I am clearly in the middle of doing something else, there is no use in arguing with him especially when the feeling of urgency he was sending me was so strong…
At first he started to dictate to me “Love is patient; Love is kind; it is not jealous; it is not proud and never boasts…” and I thought ‘why are you having me type out this excerpt from 1 Corinthians 13”And basically there was no answer, just him patiently waiting for me to look it up – once again – I know; I should have it memorized by this time… but he pointed out to me, and this is something that I have often wondered about, that so much of the time we only see the excerpt he began to dictate to me reprinted with any frequency.
And while that is a good thing, at the same time when we leave the rest of these words out (which I have included below followed by Michael’s message) the excerpt loses its “whole” meaning and the “literacy of these words (in the excerpt) tend to fall flat in the space of the ones that have been left out…” as Michael puts it. So what does this mean?
Well, it means quite simply that the urgency of the message that Love is the most important thing we can have in our lives is glossed over… we are left with some pretty words that sound nice and are absolutely True, but the urgency is lost to that…
I am not afraid to admit that I don’t as a general practice use the bible as a source of wisdom, although if one is willing to dig deep enough it can be found in bits and pieces here and there. (oh the heresy!! Though I maintain my stance and I know that Michael understands why and concurs – a subject for another time) And of all the authors of writings in the new testament, Paul is my least favorite, HOWEVER, if indeed these are his words, he makes a very valid point here…
With that I’ll let you read through what I’ve quoted here from 1 Corinthians 13, with a different kind of a message from Michael, which follows a format I have come to use whenever I record one of our private conversations together…. Read on…
1 Corinthians 13
“If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
So okayMichael, you’ve got my attention… so why this? Why now?
Aaah, you can call me “Love” … it’s okay, they’ll understand. <smile>
Really? Do you think so? Okay Love… ;-)
Why this, why now? Perhaps you’ve felt the disturbance in the Force lately Little One? Hmmm? There’s something not right here and I know you know it and can feel it… we talked about it earlier.
Yes, but I’m past that… it’s okay… I’m okay, and you know that … so what’s up with this?
It’s an important message that more people need to hear, that’s what’s up with it. So let’s talk about it.
Okay, what do you want to talk about?
What do these words mean to you?
Well there are a lot of words there… do you want me to paraphrase the whole thing?
Sure, why not, go ahead… <smile>
Okay, well the first part states how Love supersedes All else, that basically everything we say and do means nothing if we don’t have Love in our hearts.
Okay, go on.
And well the second part is the part that everyone (well a lot of people are anyway) is familiar with that tells about everything that Love is and isn’t… does and doesn’t… and how it is ever abiding… never ending… infinite.
I get from the third part that True Love is unconditional and when we feel it… really feel it… all else falls away and we get to see each other how we really are … our True Essence… you know this is what I’ve experienced today…
And where it talks about how we did things when we were children, putting childish ways behind us and how what we “see” as being but a poor reflection in the mirror??? What of that?
Well, to me that means that everything we do while we are here learning on Earth, and all the ways we’ve learned (or in many instances been “conditioned”) to do them, cannot follow us into our adulthood – or in this instance into Ascension…. The part about being a poor reflection in a mirror… when we look at each other, often what we think we’re seeing isn’t what we’re REALLY seeing… that what we see, whether we view it as good or bad, is really a reflection of what we see within ourselves, this is how completely interconnected with each other we are… and if there is any confusion about what we see, when all is said and done, after all the walls come down and the veil is finally lifted, and we see how very much alike we all are, All Truth at that point will be made known to All.
Yes! There will be no mystery left to any Soul that we ARE All One!! We ARE All the same on the inside! God incarnate; perfect replicas of the One who made us! <smile>
And THIS is my message to all who care to read or listen, that any mysteries you currently harbor doubts about, anything you are questioning in your hearts with regard to each other’s True Intentions will be made known in short order! You will come into knowing that will be so profound as to blow all you thought you knew “clean out of the water” and you will be left with the purest essence of Love and feeling of Divine Bliss… which I cannot even describe for you, it is so exquisite. You must feel it for yourself (some of you already do <griin>)!!… and then you WILL abide in the Truth forever more… all else will be forgiven… all else will be forgotten, and only True Love will remain.
I Am Archangel Michael, incarnate as Ashtar Sheran, and I bring you these words in True and Unconditional Love that you may one day know the Ecstasy of not having to worry about anything… ever again. Thank you My Dearest Ariel! I will see you tonight!
So I think I know what this is all about…. I don’t mind telling you all, and I know it will come as a surprise, maybe even a shock to some that I won’t be here much longer…
No, I’m not dying, simply leaving the planet…
During a discussion that Michael and I had about two weeks ago, the conclusion was reached after he asked me what I really wanted, and not to be afraid to be 100% honest about it, that since what I really want – the only thing I’ve ever really wanted - is to be with him, I should begin preparations for an early departure. I was reluctant to tell him that because I’ve been telling him that for a long time now… and his answer is usually something like “But Daan” (he calls me Daan, it’s a term of endearment… not sure what language) “you already ARE with me” … well of COURSE he knew what I meant… and I always interpreted his response to mean, “you’re not ready yet” hmmm… well, as I say I’ve been reluctant to say that to him even and especially recently, but when he told me to be completely honest with him, even though I felt like maybe I still haven’t done enough of what I came here to do or that maybe I was being selfish in wanting “that” knowing that there IS still so much that needs to be done, I had to say it… “I want to be with you…nothing else is more important to me than that” He told me that I shouldn’t feel guilty about leaving unfinished business behind, and reminded me about what he has been telling me since practically day one, that the most important thing I can do is simply to Love him… go figure.
The thing is, although that’s never been a problem for me… to Love him… things have gotten to a point where with all that is “going on” it’s becoming increasingly difficult to do what I’d been doing to “hold the light” here on Earth AND simply Love him too… when simply Loving him would more than suffice in holding plenty of Light, more than enough Light…. He pointed out to me that just as there comes a point in a teacher/student relationship where the student has learned all he/she can from the teacher, the teacher needs to recognize when it’s time to let the student go so they can learn from other teachers in order to expand upon their learning experience… So is this true from the standpoint of when a Lightworker has done all they can do in their current capacity; to let go and move on to another role in order to better facilitate what is about to take place, namely Ascension, but prior to that, full disclosure of the existence and presence of our extended Galactic Family here on and around Earth.
There were many roles that were presented to me initially as possibilities for ways I was to fulfill my planned experience upon becoming incarnate at this time. I have since, one by one, relinquished them all, except for one. Why? Because True Love is the One thing that means the most to me. And although I am aware that True Love can and does exist everywhere, in everything, still my own role in all of this, the one most important thing I can do to generate Light that is so badly needed is simply to Love Michael. And so this is what I willingly opt for; to put all else aside in order that I can go be with Michael and Love him to the best of my ability.
I don’t know exactly how, and I don’t know exactly when, but I’ll be going… early; much earlier than I originally had thought or could even hope for. It doesn’t matter to me anymore either what anyone thinks or says, or has ever thought or said, either to me or behind my back…and I will admit that it should never have mattered, but I am just as Human as anyone here and have had just as much to learn about myself… As Michael said, and this holds true for me as of today, once I truly understood the magnanimity of the peak on which I now stand, and the feeling of Divine Love that is within my heart, that all is forgiven, all is forgotten, none of that matters to me anymore, because I have, as I have always had, though only recently have truly understood, everything that I have ever wanted, and that is True Unconditional Love. It’s all anyone ever needs… if you try it, I think you’ll see what I mean.
Although this may not be the last thing I write in this blog, just in case it is, please know how much I Love you All, and I DO mean ALL of you, and I TRULY mean that, and know that we All will meet again one day very soon.
I send you All Infinite Blessings of Love and Light and Eternal Bliss… may you always know it and hold it like a precious treasure within your hearts! :-D
