BEFORE GOING FURTHER in our discussion of "Timelines," we must make a distinction between two different mindsets that are in play at this time on Planet Earth. This distinction was made for me years ago while reading Shakti Gawain's book Return to the Garden. A great book! I am speaking now about the difference between the words "transcendence" and "transformation."

The former term alludes to (nearly) everyone's fantasy of throwing off these shackles of 3D Limitation and moving beyond the physical into various levels of conscious mastery. That's what it means to transcend. It means "to go beyond." In order to create reality in this way, a person must be in a Separation Mindset. After all, you can't leave something behind unless you no longer believe that it's you.

In contrast, our usage of the term "transformation" allows our definition of "self" to continue to be seated in physicality, while taking our personal reality to new levels of appearance and function. Explaining this in more of an automotive jargon: Instead of selling or discarding your old car, you decide to rebuild it from the ground up.

The idea of transcendence is the heart of Old Paradigm Metaphysics. Remember those days back in the 70s and 80s? Workshop after workshop, seminar after seminar on topics such as prosperity, fame, mastery, and manifestation. We wanted to become the Sorcerer's Apprentice, didn't we? We longed for power, and we wanted to operate that power from within our ego aspect.

New Paradigm Metaphysics grows out of two complementary concepts: Universal Oneness and Multidimensionality. We are all part of the same One Being. And, within each 3D universe, that Being chooses to fragment, and manifest Him/Her/Itself in a multitude of ways. When a person appears to "depart" from one universe and travel to another, he doesn't really GO anywhere. He simply expands his focus from a small story defininition of self to a larger view. His consciousness becomes "federalized." This mass integration is the essence of what we call Transformation.

Movement from State to State
To define oneself "regionally" places a stronger emphasis on a single, solidified, physical body - operating within a set context of time and space. To be considered a Californian, for example, a person has to own a primary residence in California. Yet California is also part of a union, which is called the United States of America. Someone whose primary residence is in Massachusetts can consider himself "one" with someone living in California by virtue of the fact that both are Americans. This would also be true of the distinction between regional and local consciousness, or the relationship of states to cities.

In Old Paradigm Metaphysics, the determining factor of who, what, or where we are begins and ends with the ego. Exactly where does our 3D body reside, and what is it doing in that location on the planet? What do we own? What can we control? Who is it that calls us "master?"

New Paradigm Consciousness moves freely from city to city, state to state. It requires no passport, because it clearly belongs to every state that it's in. No one calls us anything, because we're everything. To say that we "transcend" something means we move from 'here' to 'there' (two separate points). To say that we "transform" means that we remain 'here' while inviting some of 'there' to come merge with us.

What is the shortest way to get from point A to point B in physical space? As the crow flies? Well, yes, that would nice. But there is an even shorter way to move around than that. We simply redefine point A as point B, and vice versa. No muss, no fuss. No traveling from 'here' to 'there.' In fact, the whole essence of change becomes perceptual.

In the New Paradigm, we are more than a body. We are an entire viewpoint. Manifestation is part of that, but only a small part. That which manifests as "physical" can only do so by slowing down its vibration to a point where it freezes and becomes solid. An example of this can be seen in the process of vapor becoming water and water becoming ice. All three "states" of being are the same one thing, yet each vibrates at a different speed.

As I have mentioned in a few of my other series, the 3D Design Template is built upon a concept called I AM. In 3D, a person is, or, perhaps, he was, or he will be. Each level of being is considered separate from the others, and it manifests in separate space. A veil is placed there, in consciousness - a stage curtain, if you will - so that one play does not interrupt another play that may be going on in the same theater.

The 4D Design Template is built upon a higher, lighter concept. Instead of saying I AM this or I AM that, we say Suppose I were. Let's do that shall we? Let's say that right now. You are sitting at home, in front of your computer, reading an article. Now, suppose you were aboard a sailing ship, speeding across the Atlantic Ocean. What just happened? Did you get a picture in your mind of the wind, the water, or billowing sails... visible in a cool blue sky?

Now, from your seat, back in front of that computer, suppose you are on a ship, speeding across the Atlantic, in the year 1840. What happened now? Did your sailing vessel change into a galleon? And if so, how did that happen? You utilized a faculty of "inner perception" which, in 3D, is called imagination. In 4D, however, the separation between "inner" and "outer" perception is removed. Point A becomes point B in an instant... in the twinkling of an eye.

In the Fourth Dimension, thinking is actually doing. In 3D, there is the appearance of time to plan and ponder. Time adds compartmentalization to the comings and goings of less solidified space. It enables us to say: Hey, wait a minute! Stop! Meanwhile, the comings and goings continue, while our 3D self sits along the side of the road and looks at the map.

To Be or Not To BE
To "transcend" physicality, in most people's minds, means that we don't have bodies anymore. It's not uncommon these days to hear a Transcender claim: I am no longer in 3D. They declare themselves to be "beyond the physical" (meta=beyond). Gone. Kaput.

Shakespeare's Hamlet pondered such a change when he verbalized his famous "to be or not to be" soliloquy. Prominent among Hamlet's ponderings about existence is the dichotomy of: "to suffer the conditions of having a life... or, by opposing, end it." To not be alive, he submits, is to be dead - another transcendent notion. But death, like life, is illusion. And how do the Reconnections define illusion? It is simply this:

The belief that what is seen, within any given space,
is ALL THERE IS that exists within that space.

The body of a man lies on the ground, visible to the human eye. He seems to have been felled by a dagger to the heart. Oh me, oh my! He's dead, isn't he? How sad.

Now, suppose he isn't really dead.... but merely sleeping. Would that make a difference? Of course. One primary difference might be: we wouldn't bury him.

But suppose our man just keeps right on sleeping... on and on and on. Well then, we might say that he is in a coma. We still wouldn't bury him, but we might refrain from inviting him to join us for dinner. In 3D, we have all kinds of classifications to explain why a person might be lying down continually in the same position. In Multi-D (our multidimensional self), someone is considered "asleep" if he has forgotten the many other realities in which he is also functioning. It matters not if he is up and walking around. If he is in a state of 3D forgetfulness, he is said to be "sleepwalking."

The Grand Awakening
An alarm bell is now sounding, even as we speak. Do you hear it? It's saying: Wake up. Your time has come. We hear it when we get up in the morning, as we drive to work, while we function on the job. We are still hearing it when we lay our heads down at night. It can drive a person nuts. Some experience it as an irritating buzzing or ringing in the ears. Others experience it as simply a nebulous kind of feeling - an internal awareness that something is just not quite right.

In one scene from The Matrix, a powerful motion picture about life in days to come, the character Morpheus describes what I am discussing here to Neo, a new initiate to expanded consciousness. He tells him:

Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know you can't explain - but you feel it. You've felt it your entire life. There's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there... like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me.

From that point on, Morpheus goes on to explain many things to Neo. He tells him the whole story of who he is, how to function in expanded reality, and how to transform. In other words, Morpheus frees his mind. As the story unfolds, Neo continually encounters villains who seek to subvert his process. They are called "agents," and they have been inserted into the Matrix to keep souls contained, to confound and confuse them in their process of awakening.

Each person who seeks to move from 3D Limitation to Reconnection within the Expanded Realms will encounter demons, individually and collectively. Success or failure, or the appearance of same, is 100% contingent upon successful assimilation of one's "Demons" into the Oneness that we all are. This is called shadow work, and it will be our next focus as the series continues.

In truth, the year 2012 is already here. So also the year 1941, the year 3015, and all points in between. All time is NOW, and it always has been. We've just been asleep and dreaming to such an extent that we forgot.

When an alarm clock goes off, some people arise immediately, jump in the shower, get dressed in a flash, and they're off to work. Others linger, hitting their snooze button over and over. They ramble through the house looking for coffee, and take their time getting ready. For them, the day begins as a process. No harm. No foul. How we begin our day isn't as important as long as we DO begin it.

When a person asks me How long do the Reconnections think it will be before humanity will enter 4D, I am sometimes tempted to ask him Why do you want to know? Is he wanting more time to hit the snooze alarm? Is he planning on calling in sick at work today, or what?

The Recons had the following to say in answer to this and other questions on ascension:

Ascension is not just about bunches of people going up. Humankind is also in the process of bringing Heaven down to Earth as well. Many universes there are, and many ways in which this intent is playing itself out. It's just as easy to lower the ceiling as it is to raise the floor. But why would you want to do this? Primarily, it is because most of the best things are happening down here on the floor! The celestial realms are limited, even though they are vast. A person can be just as blinded by too much LIGHT as he can by too much DARK. This is why physicality was invented, and why your collective evolution is so important to so many different life forms at this point in history.

The Physical Dimensions are becoming a primary meeting place for the Celestial and the Internal Realms, also known as the Underworld. There are "meeting rooms" here where Inter-Dimensional Delegates can share their intrinsic worth with each other, without losing the purity of who and what they are. The Archetypes who administrate the absolute levels of those realms will never actually meet, except through each of YOU. Your individual and mass consciousness is becoming a cauldron, into which is being poured all the best and most dynamic elements of Light and Dark, Form and Void, God and Goddess.

Going UP in vibration, you have access to Logic (Logos) - the Realm of Pure Idea. Moving DOWN the scale will bring you into Realms of Pure Emotion and Passion (Pathos). In Oneness, neither supercedes or dominates the other. A Guardian Spirit guarantees this. At present, your planet is moving rapidly towards what is called "The Edge of Here and Now" which is neither up nor down, but a point between. From this point, your various Delegations will have access to everything, and be limited to nothing.

Enjoy the ride. There is much change in store. And yet, at our Oneself Core, we are one and the same. Your comments and questions are welcome. See you next month with more.
