STEVE BECKOW – What is Mastery? – 6-15-16
As far back as 2013, Archangel Michael summoned lightworker leaders to their chosen missions:
“It is imperative that there be Masters of Light/Warriors of Spirit ready to step into leadership roles – those who are willing to boldly lead the way into the new realms of existence that have been prepared for ascending humanity.” (1)
Elsewhere we looked closely at his discussion of this need for leadership. Perhaps here we can look more at his concept of mastery. The two discussions are intertwined so it won’t be completely possible to separate them.
I asked him on An Hour with an Angel in 2015 what mastery was and he replied:
“You will be surprised at the simplicity of my answer. Mastery is the acceptance, surrender, and embodiment in form of you – as [your] design, as love.” (2)
Acceptance of and surrender to our natural design? How surprising is that? What? No achievement? No accomplishment?
I asked him if surrender and acceptance happened by a process of emergence or breakthrough and he replied:
“It is through the process of surrender. It is [through] the process of elimination. It is [through] the process of illumination into emergence. And that is where you are, most of you, right now. That is why we are saying, if you are not there, do the elimination and [emerge]. We are here to help.
“And through emergence, you have become what you have thought of as the ascended being, the mastery of your being, of who you are in that mastery, in that emergence into the truth – because there is only one truth. There’s not this truth or that truth. There’s not this love or that love.” (3)
So mastery is surrendering to who we are, who we were designed to be – and that is love. Sahaja samadhi, the gateway to moksha (libeartion) and true Fifth Dimensionality, simply means our natural state (sahaja = natural). And our natural state is love.
Mastery therefore means emerging from all that we were never designed to be – polarized, separative, suspicious, manipulative, all the ways we practiced in Third Dimensionality, not so very long ago – into all that we were designed to be – our natural state of love for everything that is.
He tells us what happens when we love consistently.
“When you emerge and stay in that frequency, in that energy, then what happens is the whole tableau, the whole realm of understanding of what you think of as enlightenment or vision or wisdom opens up so that you are not seeking elsewhere.” (5)
Therefore we don’t need to worry that serving as lightworkers will have us miss out on enlightenment. We don’t need to seek anything else elsewhere, he tells us. Our lightwork preparation for mastery/leadership by surrendering into love will bring us all things.
And our work doesn’t mean the loss of our individuality and gifts either, he says:
“That does not mean that the honoring of unique qualities, of the contributions that every single being has given to this become of no meaning. In fact they gain greater meaning because you truly begin to see in your mastery the fullness and the mastery of all.” (6)
So many of our leaders have been revealed as egomaniacs. It’s hard to find a few who aren’t. He says that that won’t be the way of the future. In the future, all of us will serve as gentle leaders and good shepherds in areas that appeal to us.
“Mastery, leadership is not about becoming an egomaniac. It is about becoming the shepherd. It is about becoming the gentle leader who serves his people – her people – and shows them the way. And if it is the way to the table, if it is the way to the boat, if it is the way to their heart, then this is your way. This is the choice of your divinity and your mastery.” (7)
Finally, individual mastery leads to collective mastery. Mastery spreads in the right environment and now is certainly the right environment. He tells us:
“When we speak of mastery, again we speak of the individual coming to the place of their mastery. But as you go forward as a collective, you then become an expression, a collective, a circle, a massive circle of mastery, each in your own particular chosen realms.” (8)
Thus, mastery entails surrender into our original design, the truth of who we are. That truth is love. It doesn’t change from person to person. It’s true for all of us.
Mastery and leadership are not about egomania; they aren’t about “me.” They’re about becoming the gentle leader and the good shepherd to others – at the front of the line and the rear, there for others. It’s about love and service, melded together.
Our ego complains and tells us to turn from this path of letting go. But our native courage tells us to persevere and reach the destination of surrender into our native state of love.
