We Stand on the Threshold of a Golden Age
Numerous spirit and galactic sources describe to us the Golden Age that is fast approaching. “You stand poised at the threshold of the new Golden Age for mankind,” says spirit teacher Saul. (1) In that era, humanity will “move into full consciousness.” “It is the state toward which you have been working for a very long period of Earth time, and through many Earth lifetimes.”
He describes what we’ll experience then:
“The moment of fulfillment of God’s promise to humanity of a new Golden Age is shortly to dawn. When it does your joy will be stunning for you, as understanding of its meaning floods into your awareness — like the depths of winter changing instantly into the lushness of full summer.
“Your thoughts, your imaginings, even your dreams have given you not the smallest inkling of what is about to occur. Rest assured that the wonder of this approaching event leaves absolutely no room for even the slightest sense of doubt or disenchantment.” (2)
Saul is not alone in making this prediction. Here is Matthew Ward on the same subject:
“It is the collective light on the planet that is ushering your world into the Golden Age!” (3)
“The unstoppable intensity of the light is propelling Earth ever closer to the Golden Age, where no darkness of any kind can exist.” (4)
Those people who can tap into the collective consciousness, Matthew says, “are accurately seeing what we have described in Earth’s Golden Age — the loving, peaceful life of all peoples, the restoration of your planet’s health and beauty, the harmonious co-existence of humankind with all of Nature.”
“In this wondrous Earth that is on the near horizon and already created in the continuum, there is no fear, no violence or greed or bigotry or any other divisiveness that thrives in a third-density world.” (5)
SaLuSa holds the same vision:
“See the rainbow and the pot of gold, because you are truly entering a Golden Age that will be so beautiful and uplifting we can hardly put it into words. Even in your wildest dreams you have not touched upon the feeling of the wonderful energies that you will experience. They absolutely ensoul you with a great Love and Light, and that is where you once came from eons of time ago.” (6)
“It is the end of the illusion, and the suffering it engenders,” Saul tells us. “Your happiness and exhilaration in the joy of being alive when you finally awaken from this deranged and stifling nightmare will overwhelm you.” (7)
It is part of “an ongoing process,” according to SaLuSa. (8) We may ascend on this occasion, but we will ascend continuously to higher and higher levels of existence on other occasions, until at last we reach a point where we have ceased to exist as an entity separate from God and have merged with God again.
What Ascension Is Not
Ascension is not an upward movement, Matthew reminds us. To use the word “Ascension” is to use a metaphor:
“Although this movement is into planes of successively lighter energy, not into progressively higher elevations such as climbing a stepladder or a mountain, souls’ growth in conscious awareness and spiritual clarity can be thought of as upward. Thus ascension is the most descriptive term for this advancement.” (9)
Thus it has, Matthew Ward says, nothing whatsoever to do with a physical rising into the sky, “nothing . . . to do with the ‘raptures’ of religion, so please do not try to fit that concept into the universal truth. Ascension is the process of Earth leaving third density and traveling through fourth on to fifth.” (10)
It is not a spiritual judgment process, as Matthew informs us:
“There is no seat of judgment or arbitrary selection of which humans can ascend and which cannot — it is strictly a matter of science and souls’ own choices. Light changes third density’s carbon-based cellular structure to the crystalline form that lets bodies survive in the higher frequencies, or vibrations, of fourth density and beyond.
“That is why persons who choose to live in the light can ascend with Earth and those who choose to cling to their dark ways cannot. After a time in spirit, souls in the latter group will incarnate in a world that corresponds to their Earth lifetime energy registration and have more opportunities to ‘see the light.’” (11)
It will be, the galactic, SaLuSa of Sirius, says, “the most important step you have taken since the last cycle began, and it is why so many Beings accompany you in the last stages of your preparations.” (12)
When we finally do ascend, he says, “you may be absolutely certain that you have succeeded in overcoming duality, and you will truly be looked upon as a Master.” (13)
The fact of ascension, he adds, “is only known to a relatively small percentage of Humankind. Many more have heard about it but it has no real meaning for them. In fact it is often denied as the fanciful notions of dreamers.”
“It is most important that every soul understands what Ascension stands for, and that each one is able to make an inspired choice.
“You who are already aware can help them understand what a wonderful process it is, one that is intended to lift you up to levels that are more in line with your true selves.” (14)
