Ascended Master Saint Germain, June 3rd, 2017, through Kim Michaels. This dictation was given at a conference in Holland.
I am the Ascended Master Saint Germain and I wish to give you a slightly different take on the golden age. Now, you may look at the discourses that I have given so far, that we gave last year, that other masters have given about the golden age and you could say that we are focussing a lot on all of the problems that need to be overcome for the golden age to be manifest.
Now, my beloved, there are some spiritual people on earth who would look at this and say that these cannot be the real ascended masters because we should not focus on anything negative because we magnify it with our consciousness and the real masters would never ask us to do this. They would give us a positive vision and have us focus on that. Well, my beloved, while these people are well-meaning, they are also not very well informed because they are not willing to recognize the existence of dark forces and fallen beings. You simply cannot, on a planet like earth, bring forth a new age, let alone a golden age, by only focusing on the positive and ignoring the not so positive.
Why we need to look at issues
It is necessary for you to be aware of certain issues. It is necessary to make precise calls on these issues because only when those in embodiment make these calls, can we of the ascended masters step in and deal with the issues and the dark forces behind them. If you do not do this, you simply will not manifest a better age. It cannot be done.
Naturally we are not asking you to focus on these problems with fear, and that is why we give you such a large overall teaching that, when you understand it, you realize that we are not giving you a fear-based teaching where you feel completely overwhelmed and pacified and feel like you cannot do anything about all these problems or dark forces. We are giving you an empowering teaching whereby you realize that you can actually do something. You can make the calls and this authorizes us to step in. While you may not have the power to overcome the dark forces, we do. We simply need the authority.
If you are not willing to look at various issues, you cannot solve them and why is that, my beloved? It is very simple. The earth is an educational institution. How do people learn? Well, they learn by the push-pull of immersing yourself and identifying yourself in the material realm and then awakening yourself from that identification. The awakening process is a twofold process where you both come to see the issues that are limiting you, that have caused you to be identified with the material realm, and you also come to see that you are much more. You are a spiritual being and there is a positive vision of a higher society and a higher state on earth.
If you will not look at the issues that have limited you, my beloved, how can you then free yourself from them and consciously separate yourself from them? It is precisely in separating yourself from the limitations, that you expand your consciousness, that you raise your consciousness to a new level.
There are many new-age people who have lulled themselves into, or have been lulled into by the fallen beings, a state where they think they are so peaceful, they are so harmonious, they are so focussed on the positive that surely they are helping to radiate good vibrations that will transform the earth. The reality is that many of these people are not growing whatsoever. They are not raising their consciousness beyond that level because they are not willing to look at the fact that they have an ego, they have internal spirits, they have ties to the fallen beings. They are not willing to look at the fact that the reason why they feel so peaceful and calm is that the fallen beings are leaving them alone for the simple reason that they are not a threat. As long as you are not a threat to the fallen beings, they will often leave you alone—unless you get sucked into one of their more overall schemes, like for example, a war or some of the other exploitations that we have talked to you about that affect many people.
We are not asking you to focus on these issues with fear but actually with a love-based approach where you realize that we are simply bringing this to your attention so you can make the calls that allow us to step in. Now, that being said, I do want to give you a sort of more positive, you might say, vision of the process of moving the earth into the golden age.
We are also ignorant today
Now, I am not here going to go too far beyond the present time and the more immediate future because the long-term perspectives of what can happen in the golden age over the next 2000 years will indeed take us so far beyond what most people on earth can even imagine. What I would like to do is to begin with the fact that there was a time in history that you today look back at and call the Dark Ages. Why do you call them the Dark Ages? Because you see today that you know so much more than people knew back then, and therefore they were living in a state of ignorance that you then associate with darkness.
Yet the time you are talking about was not necessarily completely dark. For example, all of the great cathedrals of Europe were built during that time. Buildings that you would find it rather difficult to duplicate today even with modern technology because you simply would not have the knowledge of geometry that these buildings are based on. There are other examples you could mention and, of course, many of the productions of that time – the art, the history, the culture – may seem primitive compared to today but it was not necessarily that people were so ignorant.
The reason I am bringing this up is that if you actually project into the future a hundred or two hundred years, they will look back at your time and consider that you were in the Dark Ages because they know so much more about the world than you know today, at least at the official level. What you need to recognize here is that even though you know much in the modern age, even though science has discovered much about the material universe, there is still a certain level of ignorance and it will, of course, be overcome as you move into the golden age. This overcoming of ignorance is a gradual process.
I have already in my previous discourses, as has Astrea, given you some perspectives on the changes in consciousness that need to happen so that you can gradually move out of the mindset today that is so prevalent in western nations. This mindset is a peculiar form of ignorance where you know an awful lot about the external world but you, as a society and as most people, you know very little about the internal world of the psyche, of what consciousness is, how it works, what is the potential of consciousness. As a result of this ignorance, you are actually bringing up your children (as you yourselves were brought up) in a state of ignorance about who you are, what your real potential is. This means that most people today have been brought up without having one of their basic needs fulfilled.
The need for a sense of purpose
We have talked before about the fact that one of the basic human needs is a sense of purpose. You need to have a sense of purpose in life or you are very likely to go into a state of depression, mental illness, substance abuse, any form of escapism that you can mention. This, of course, is not going to make you feel good about yourself and about life. It is not going to make you feel fulfilled in your life.
As we move further into the golden age, and here we are not necessarily talking a very long timespan, there will be a shift where suddenly a critical mass of people have come to accept that we must be more than material beings. We have a need for a sense of purpose, and in fact, society should bring up children to have some knowledge of who they are, how the psychology works, what the potential for human consciousness is. It actually should bring up children with a sense that there is a purpose in life, there is a direction in life.
This means that there can – relatively quickly – come a shift so that people in greater numbers begin to accept some of the ideas that we are teaching you today. Now, as we are teaching you these ideas, my beloved, they may seem to you to be far ahead. They may even seem to you to be spiritual, but as we have attempted to show you in this conference, it is, in fact, possible to express many of the ideas we have given you in a universal way so that they are not tied to any particular religion, spiritual philosophy and not even tied to ascended masters.
We do not need society at large to recognize the existence of ascended masters for the foreseeable future. Naturally, at some point in the golden age, societies will recognize this. Those who recognize it and openly and consciously cooperate with us, will prosper and those who do not will fall behind. For the foreseeable future, it is not necessary that society recognizes us, but it is necessary that people begin to recognize and accepts some of these universal ideas.
The rest of this dictation, along with an invocation based on the dictation, is found in the book: Accepting Saint Germain’s Golden Age.
