Message from Q'uo on Ascension 3-19-06
- Sunday Meditation
March 19, 2006
Group question: The question today has to do with the general idea of
"ascension," or transitioning into fourth density and we're wondering
what role the Holy Spirit plays. Is it something that comes into us
and inspirits us and helps us along on this transition? Is it the same
thing as the higher self? Is this transition something into which
we're moving or is it moving towards us? Just how does this work?
We're wondering what Q'uo could tell us that would give us a little
more clarity on this whole concept of moving from third density to
fourth density, how it happens, who helps, and how it works.
We are those known to you as the principle of Q'uo. We greet you in
the love and the light of the one infinite Creator, in Whose service
we come to you this day. We thank each of you for laying aside this
precious time to seek the truth and we are most honored and privileged
to be called to your circle of seeking. As we gaze upon you, we, as
always, are moved by the beauty of your vibrations and the harmony of
your interrelating auras.
You have truly created a special chapel that takes in many entities in
many places and it is a very special moment for us to experience the
internet's addition to the group, for we are able to see you as a
group in the non-local precincts of time/space and you truly have a
builded structure of light from the combined and collaborative efforts
of all of you to join into the unity of a seeking circle. We thank you
for this privilege and for the beauty that lies before us in each of you.
As always, we would ask a favor of you, please. Be very careful to
discriminate as you listen to or read those words which we offer
through this instrument. Words are fragile things and in a sense that
which we intend may not be conveyed. Therefore, we need you to
discriminate between those thoughts that are helpful to you and those
thoughts that do nothing for you. If a thought is not resonant to you,
please let it go and use only those thoughts that you recognize,
almost as though you had thought it but had forgotten that you knew.
That is the hallmark of material that it is time for you to use. If
you will make that distinction in working with our words then we will
feel much more free to be open in our communication with you and not
be worried about infringing upon your free will. We thank you for this
consideration, my friends.
In speaking about the ascension process and the Holy Spirit's part in
it, which is the way we understand your query to be centered, we take
on, as this instrument said earlier, a good bit of terminology that is
loaded with distortions because of the heavy use of both these words,
[in] the portions of the religion that you call Christianity, in which
much focus is placed upon ascension and the second coming of Jesus the
The problem with using religious terminology, in general, is that it
is distorted in the way that anything will be distorted while gazing
at it through a corrective lens. The perceived job of religions, as
seen by the religion itself, is to create a distorted lens so that
entities with bad eyesight can see their vision of the one infinite
Creator. Therefore, they set up terminology, structures of thought and
words which create a correction to the innocent vision of the
faithful, offering to them the corrections of points of dogma in a
certain pattern which, when received in faith, shall create that
correction to the sight that will give them the heavenly vision of the
The problem with any dogmatic source, of course, is that the Creator
Itself is not dogmatic nor is it subject to being described by the
humans who are attempting to honor and worship that Creator or that
great creative force or Thought. Therefore, the terms used-that is,
the term "ascension" and the term "Holy Spirit"-alike are weighed down
with an inadvertently heavy burden of inference and assumption. When
what this instrument would call fundamentalist, inerrantist Christians
use these terms, they are using them in a very narrow sense, specific
to the New Testament and even more specifically to the Book of Revelation.
We would like to start there and work our way back to, may we say, a
less distorted valuing of those words, and then we would like to lift
away from the burden of the terminology and talk a bit about the
underlying picture that this terminology is attempting to depict.
This instrument has a long and intimate relationship with the Holy
Spirit as it is understood by her. She calls this entity, "Holly." She
talks to this entity many times each day. She begins each day by
calling upon Holly and asking for her help. She does not know what the
day will bring but she has learned that it will bring something. And
so before she arises from her bed in the morning, she calls upon
Holly. She asks for her to be with the one known as Carla during the
day and to speak in her ear, to shed her wisdom, her love, and her
compassion upon the situations that meet this instrument's eye.
This is the general sense in which we would use the term, "Holy
Spirit." That is that being which comforts a certain entity with all
of that entity's distortions in place. The spirit that belongs to an
entity is not a judge but a witness, an advisor, and an enspiriter.
The nature of the Holy Spirit is well summed up by a prayer that this
instrument uses each time she tunes for working with us in a session
or for giving a speech or offering an interview on the radio or
television. The prayer is one that we would repeat at this time in
order that each may see the intended function and nature of this
powerful part of the principle of the one infinite Creator. This is
her prayer. It is one that she learned in 1983 when she was a part of
the Episcopal Cursillo movement, taking a weekend out of her life to
examine that life, create a rule of life, and dedicate her life even
more intimately and firmly to the following of the teacher that she
calls Jesus, the Christ.
Come Holy Spirit. Fill the heart of your faithful and kindle in her
the fire of your love. Send forth your spirit and she shall be created
and you shall renew the face of the Earth. Oh God, who by the light of
the Holy Spirit did instruct the hearts of the faithful, grant that by
the same Holy Spirit I may be truly wise and ever enjoy its
consolation. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Looking at the structure of this prayer, you may see that this
instrument perceives the spirit as coming down, being pulled into her
by her calling and her yearning for the divine, yet also being called
forward by her emptiness and her willingness to be filled with new
inspiration, new thoughts, and new ideas.
The Holy Spirit is not a comfortable comforter. It can create in the
seeking soul a divine discomfort. It can help to sharpen and hone your
particular vision of what it is to be yourself, what it is to be a
part of the one infinite Creator, and what it is to face the world and
look at that world, not for solace or for riches but for the
opportunity to serve the light.
The one known as R was asking if the Holy Spirit could be considered
an inner-planes or an outer-planes entity. We may say to the one known
as R that you may consider this energy source to be both. In its
function as guidance it is inner-planes. The calling is within the
inner planes of your planet and in the inner bodies of your self. The
connection is from the unseen realms directly into the heart, coming
through the crown chakra, the gateway to intelligent infinity, down
through indigo and blue, to rest in the heart itself.
When you have prayed to the Holy Spirit for a long period of time, you
have created the connection that is instantaneous and strongly
comforting, a never-failing source of wisdom, compassion and good advice.
The outer-planes portion of the Holy Spirit is that portion that has
nothing to do with planet Earth or with your perceived notions of who
you are or what the Creator is, for the Creator Itself is transcendent
to Its creation. It is not an actor caught within the play of
creation. It is uncreated, inorganic, infinite and eternal.
This Creator has a nature. That nature is absolute, unconditional
love. And we use that word reluctantly, for love is a feeble, flaccid,
effete word, badly used, abused and drawn through the mud of a dozen
different usages of that word to mask impure intents, imperfect
emotions, and confusion betwixt the desires of the body, the desires
of the mind, and the desires of the spirit.
Indeed, those languages which contain many terms for the word love
would be a blessing to us. However, this instrument speaks English and
in your language love stands alone to indicate everything from lust to
that unconditional love which causes a mother to give her life for her
child or a soldier in combat to give his life to save his comrades.
We speak of a love that is beyond all of the boundaries and limits of
human feeling. We speak of love that creates and destroys. We speak of
love that changes things. If you can imagine a Thought that has the
power to create the universe, then in your imagination you have seen
love in its full meaning. To call the Creator love, however, is to
limit that entity, for the creative principle is a mystery beyond the
plumbing of any, including ourselves.
We would content ourselves then with describing this enlivening,
invigorating, enspiriting energy and essence as the Holy Spirit.
Before we leave this particular term we would simply say that the term
"higher self," as used in Confederation teachings such as those of the
Ra group, is a concept which describes the Holy Spirit but from a
point of view that is quite different from the religion-driven concept
of the Holy Spirit.
Like the concept of the Holy Spirit in Christianity, the concept of
the higher self is of an essence or an entity which is called down
from the resting place of the higher self, which is mid-sixth density,
to the self by prayer and supplication.
Unlike the term Holy Spirit, the term higher self indicates and
specifies that the self, the higher self, and the Creator are all part
of one thing. There is not another self, independent and apart from
the self, that is being called down from some heavenly place into the
heart. Rather, in the concept of the higher self, the self, the higher
self, and the Creator Itself are all part of one entity.
The self is the self caught within the world of illusion by choice,
veiled from awareness of the larger experience, and enjoying life
within incarnation. The higher self is that same entity within sixth
density. The explanation offered by those of Ra was that the self
within sixth density pauses at a moment when it realizes that it is
being ineluctably drawn forward into seventh density and will soon
turn its back upon creation as known in the past in order that it may
open its arms to the process of the increasing spiritual gravity of
its nature and be drawn ever more quickly back into the heart of the
one infinite Creator.
That resource of the self speaking to the self, then, is the self at
is wisest and most loving. The concept, unlike the concept of the Holy
Spirit, creates an atmosphere in which the self is seen specifically
as sacred and no less of a Creator than the Creator itself but rather
seen as a young Creator in need of advice.
We feel that both concepts are helpful and we leave it to each seeker
to play with those terms and to find for the self what each entity
feels is the proper terminology for the guidance system which is a
part of each person's web of resources and tools for living.
The term "ascension" is similarly trammeled with a heavy overlay of
religiosity. Ascension is a term which is used in what this instrument
calls the Holy Bible, in the New Testament. It is a process which is
heavily laden with fear in the minds of those faithful people who
attempt to understand the workings of ascension from the Christian
In the Christian viewpoint, the picture of the end of the Earth upon
which you now enjoy life is harsh. The end comes suddenly. The world
dissolves into the one known as Jesus coming down from heaven and all
of the graves being opened so that all of the entities that who have
died can then spring forth, take on a new and spiritual body, and if
you are lucky enough to be one of the chosen, you ascend into an
entirely new creation, that Utopian heaven in which you have a mansion
prepared for you and are free to spend the rest of eternity praising
the one infinite Creator.
As a bit of religious fiction or myth, shall we say, it is
unsophisticated and simplistic and we would not know what to do with a
question about this concept. We would not know where to start in order
to untangle the love from the fear, the joy from the sorrow, and the
good from the seemingly difficult and negative.
In terms of our understanding of spirituality, there is an ascension
process that we see going on all the time. It is a natural rising of
entities through the mists of confusion and ignorance into a gradually
more and more light and airy place where heaviness falls away, fear
falls away, and what is left in the human breast is gratitude, joy and
My friends, this is your true nature. This is who you are. You are not
a person seeking enlightenment. You are a person seeking yourself. To
put it another way, you stand within flesh looking out [of] your
physical eyes and hearing through physical ears and consequently you
feel that you are a person of flesh and blood, limited by the senses
that you experience as part of your physical body.
We would say to you that our perception of you is entirely different.
In our perception you are extremely powerful and magical beings. Even
within flesh, you have within you the ability to access the divine.
This is because your very nature is love. Therefore, as you call out
for your guidance, it is love calling to love. Certainly you are love
that is confused at times, troubled and distorted in your perceptions,
often fearing, often trembling, often discouraged and tempted greatly
to be cynical and smart.
It is very likely that entities who seek find themselves fairly often
in times of deep darkness, when the soul is hungry. The oasis that you
seek at such times lies within you. The question is how to create good
access to that self that lies within the illusion of your personality,
your physical body, and your culture. How many different sources that
you respect have said in essence, "You must know yourself. An
unexamined life is not worth living. I think, therefore I am"?
The question of guidance and how it will affect entry into fourth
density is a powerful question and one which we cannot even begin to
answer in this session. But it begins with clearing out and cleaning
out your perceptions of ascension and of your guidance system, or the
Holy Spirit, so that you are not caught on the various thorns of
religiosity and instead can focus on the reality of your divinity and
your way of creating a powerful and strong access to an enhanced
awareness of yourself.
What you are attempting to do when you pray to this Holy Spirit is to
become enspirited. You are asking the higher, better, wiser and more
loving part of yourself or of the creative principle to come upon you,
to fill you, to reveal to you your true nature, which is love, and to
give you those marching orders that make love itself into a plan for
the day. It is not that love will tell you what to do. It is that love
will tell you how to do it with love.
As you do ordinary, everyday things with this intense, overshadowing
love, something magical occurs. As you seek to pull that enhanced
vision of a life lived in love into yourself from the regions of the
divine, you activate powers within you that are incredibly strong. And
you begin emitting light. It is not coming from you but rather it is
coming through you. You've turned the switch by turning your mind to love.
You've gotten the power upped by your prayers and supplications to be
enlivened and enspirited by that which is clearer, purer and higher
than you, in your perceptive web of everyday five senses, can remember
how to do by yourself without often having trouble.
But help is available. That help is the Holy Spirit. And when the life
is given over to that higher and better self that is love, when your
consciousness has become that which carries the energy of the divine,
then you have only to radiate, as you naturally will, as you move
through your day and you shall make a difference in that day.
Whether you are alone or in the midst of many, many people, you shall
make a radiation by your focus that is precious to the Creator, for it
is by your free will that you have chosen to access that enlivening
spirit and to give your life, your day, and your moment over to the
intentions, hopes and dreams of the sacred within you and within the
You asked concerning the transition from third to fourth density. My
friends, this in itself is a topic that would take a great deal of
time to examine with any degree of care. And so we shall touch on this
subject as best we can in the time and energy that remain within this
instrument's physical body and emotional body and within the
limitations of time for all of those within this circle.
You are all familiar with the concept of channels on your television
set or stations on your radio. If you would like to think of it in a
way that is a little bit more comfortable than the phrase of
"interpenetration of third and fourth density," you may think of third
density as vibrating or radiating as a vibration or energy at a
certain point on the dial and fourth density as radiating in a
discrete and separate point on that same dial. You can tune into one
station or you can tune into the other.
Each of you was set up, in order to come into third density, with
third-density parameters being met. You cannot become fourth-density
entities. You would not be useful to the planet and to the approach of
fourth density if you attempted to live in fourth density. Rather,
your glory is that you have earned the right to an incarnation at a
time when you are capable of helping to shift the consciousness of the
planet you call Earth in such a way that it calls forth from entities
the desire to awaken and remember who they are so that they, too, may
be part of the graduation from third to fourth density.
In a way, all of you are engaged in one mission together. You are
attempting to awaken humankind. Focus that attempt upon yourself. As
you awaken, the world awakens. Do not feel that you must go forth and
teach in order to do this job. As you work on yourself, you are
working for all of humankind. Be content, therefore, to seek ever more
deeply within yourself for your true nature.
Oh, my friends, if you could only know for sure who you are, your
hearts would soar. For you are love. You are a consciousness to whom
the worlds are open. You can create and you can destroy, and, my
friends, you do this each and every day.
For your thoughts are powerful things, and as you gain in power as a
being you are ever more capable of creating metaphysical hurt or
healing by the thoughts that you think. Therefore, we ask you to be
aware of your thoughts, to patrol them with love and compassion, and
when you find yourself being cynical, petty, judgmental or foolish-and
we will allow that word to be what it means to each of you-we ask you
to remember that one of the things you came here to do was vigorously
and relentlessly to go after consciousness itself and find ever more
fully that joy that comes from knowing who you are and why you are here.
The planet itself is going through its own transformation. The
energies that are hospitable to third-density life are waning and
because of the actions of your peoples in their thoughtlessness .
(Side one of tape ends.)
. with regard to their planetary resources, that time that is
hospitable to third-density life has been shortened to a certain
extent. It is normal, at a time of shift, for there to be as much as a
thousand years after the shift while third density clears the planet
of all energies that have been unfriendly or inhospitable.
Unfortunately for planet Earth, the entities upon your planet have not
come to the end of third density ready to embrace love, peace, freedom
and justice. They do not see the beauty of harmony.
There has been within your culture a stubborn and persistent love of
aggression and violence, where entities are moved by fear and
therefore seek to protect and defend those things and people which are
dear to them while rejecting the oneness of the planet as a whole. It
is only in this atmosphere of separation that it is possible to
consider slaughtering one's fellow beings as your peoples do each and
Therefore, the end of your third density is not going particularly
well from the standpoint of comfort and it will be uncomfortable for
some time to come. You knew this when you took incarnation. You were
eager to come here and to make a difference.
You do not have to rescue planet Earth! However, there is a karmic
energy within many of your peoples which comes from actions in other
lifetimes which resulted in making third-density environments
uninhabitable. Therefore, the karma is involved in restitution and
stewardship of planet Earth. And there are many people among your
tribes all over the globe who feel a tremendous love for the planet
itself and a desire to heal it. We would encourage this line of
thinking, for truly all is one and your planet is a part of you.
As you move into the future, realize that part of your job has to do
with radiating the love and light of the infinite Creator. And another
part of it may well have to do with working with whatever energies
that are about you in your natural, everyday environment, to attempt
to become better stewards of that which is around you. What is your
environment? How can you interact with it lovingly? How can you create
islands of peace and joy so that when you enter the door to your home
you are entering a sacred place? If you perceive of the Earth as a
sacred place, what shall you do to clear the moneylenders out of the
temple? We leave this to your consideration.
Fourth density already exists. It is a very sound and healthy child.
It is a new heaven and a new Earth. And it is being filled more and
more each day with those who have ascended, in the natural way of
things, from planet Earth through the gateway of death. It is the
great hope of many energies and essences of your inner planes, such as
your angels and your guardians, that each of you may enjoy a
leisurely, organic and natural ascension through that gateway to
larger life that is the physical death.
From the standpoint of planet Earth, that is perfectly acceptable.
Gaia herself does not at this time need to shake you off like fleas.
However, as we have said before, we caution you, for there are
entities all around your globe whose vision of ascension includes a
self-created apocalypse. There is almost a hunger within that part of
the planetary consciousness that is invested in power for the dark
pleasure of blowing everything up once again.
See what you can do, my friends, to elect officials who are not caught
in that "glorious Gotterdammerung" vision. See what you can do to
elect officials whose hearts are stayed on love itself and whose
vision is one which includes all entities in any plans that it may
make, not just those who are wealthy or powerful.
We encourage you to wake up to this life, to embrace third density and
to orient yourself as to who you are and why you are here. That is
where the Holy Spirit can be so very helpful. Whether you see that
energy as a Christed energy as in Christianity or whether you see that
energy as coming directly from a larger vision of the Creator which
includes all of the galaxies, all of known space and time, and all of
the inner and unseen realms as well, whichever vision helps you the
most, we encourage you to take that vision.
There is nothing wrong with the Christian vision. It is a distorted
vision, but so is any structure that is pulled into logic and
mentality and intellect from the realms of spirit. The heart does not
deal in quantities, it deals in qualities. When you attempt to define
the Holy Spirit, you are attempting to quantize it. It cannot be done.
So the best we can do is to give you ways to think about these terms
that may help you.
To respond, finally, to the question of the one known as T, it is
indeed so that the transformation of the self by calling on the spirit
is an essential part of ascension, however one describes or configures
It is by the guidance that penetrates into our heart of hearts that we
finally learn to let our lives go and to open them to the unfathomable
and mysterious presence of the divine. It is a release that is
miraculous, just letting the boundaries of the intellect go. We do not
encourage moving without regard to the intellect in everyday life but
rather we encourage the opening up of your point of view to encompass
a self that is both physical and spiritual, not separately but all
together in one glorious confusion, as the one known as M said earlier.
Our wish for you would be that you were in this moment to determine to
be ready to listen, to say, as this instrument does, "Come Holy
Spirit!" And we say to you that you are asking for a lot when you ask
for the spirit. You are not simply asking for a nice or a pretty or a
beautiful experience. You are asking for the truth. Be ready, when you
ask, for whatever may happen, for a sincere request to the spirit
shall never be unheard. You shall be answered, my friends, and your
lives shall change.
We realize that our time is up and we believe that it is best,
examining this instrument's energy levels, that we ask for only one or
two brief questions before we leave this instrument. Is there another
query at this time? We are those of Q'uo.
B: I have one. You mentioned we are beings of love and beings of
consciousness. What's the difference between love and consciousness?
We are those of Q'uo, and are aware of your query, my brother. Love is
an essence. It is not necessarily tied to a point of focus. It is
rather that focus that creates all that is and, as such, its nature
transcends consciousness, as we use the term to indicate that portion
of a human being which is not caught in space and time.
May we answer you further, my brother?
B: I understood.
Is there another query at this time? We are those of the Q'uo.
B: Let me check on the internet.
B: I think P has one. Hold on.
P: (Speaking through the internet from Nevada.) I was wondering if you
could clarify how love is destructive.
We are those of Q'uo, and are aware of your query, my brother. And may
we say what a pleasure it is to embrace the energy and the spirit of
the one known as P as well as all of those whom we have not
experienced as part of this group for a time. It is a great pleasure
to us to say hello.
That which is the Creator is that which equally creates and destroys.
To the Creator, the two are part of one process. There is a dynamic
between light and dark, creation and destruction, love and fear, and
so forth. It is one of the powerful dynamics that are a part of the
illusion which you now enjoy.
It is perhaps easier to see this destructive and creative aspect when
one examines, say, the life of a sun or the life cycle of an animal
within your second density. There are portions of that cycle in which
the animal involved is growing. There are portions in that cycle in
which the animal is food for another animal. Yet the entirety of the
creation is harmonious.
And rather than feeling that there is a wickedness involved in nature,
"red in tooth and claw,"  as the one known as Alfred said, it is to
be seen that this is all a perfectly acceptable part of the dance of
life in which entities eat food and are food in their turn. As your
body dies it shall be food for worms. And the Creator has provided
natural ways in which the seemingly destructive process of various
creatures, like worms and other bugs eating the body, makes it a part
of the Earth once again and the cycle of that particular body is
complete: dust to dust, ashes to ashes. That is the sense in which we
meant the destructive nature of love. It, in being creative, must also
complete the cycle and be destructive as well in the natural and
organic whole of a 360 degree world.
May we answer you further, my brother?
P: That sounded pretty good, although I'm interested on your point on
a 360 degree world. Are there levels below that?
We are those of Q'uo, and are aware of your query, my brother. This
instrument's use of the term "360 degrees" is meant simply to indicate
there is no such thing as an arc that is uncompleted in the creation.
All energies have their dynamics and form perfect circles or spheres,
to be more accurate.
We find that this instrument's energies are waning and so we would
take this opportunity to thank each of you for this opportunity to be
a part of your circle of seeking. We would leave you at this time with
great joy and thankfulness in the love and in the light of the one
infinite Creator. We are known to you as the principle of Q'uo.
