Question: Will the masters say more about why there is value in experiencing the self in separation? How does that help a being learn to be in oneness? How can that possibly help raise the whole?
Answer from the Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Estonia in 2018.
We have basically answered this question in our dictations during the conference where we said that it is necessary in an unascended sphere that some beings explore whatever can be done with free will. One of the things that can be done with free will is that you can express your free will as a separate being rather than a being who is connected to the greater whole.
This does not necessarily help raise the collective awareness on a planet like Earth, that people go into separation but when these experiences are processed by the I AM Presence and become part of the causal body then it can help an entire evolution of lifestreams realize what works and what doesn’t work, what they want to experience and what they don’t want to experience.
All of you who have children will know that children could not grow to become adults by being taught theoretically how to behave as a human being. You can tell your children that the stove is hot but if they don’t have an experience of what it means that something is hot, they are not going to believe you and they wouldn’t grow from doing it. So what we have explained is that growth, the progression, the raising of the consciousness has two aspects.
One is that you understand more and more and this is where we as the ascended masters can give you teachings that increase your understanding. The omega aspect is that you have to have a certain amount of experiences in order to grow. You have to experience what works and what doesn’t work and you can only have this by having an experience. That is why there is also value in going into separation and exploring what can happen.
That is also why we say that whatever happens on earth is like building a sand castle, no matter what terrible events from a certain perspective or what terrible events have happened on Earth, it can all be erased and the energy can be returned to its purer state. Nevertheless, people will have had certain experiences of what doesn’t work and those experiences are stored in the causal body and therefore become positive experiences that help the growth of the collective and the individual.
Now of course you can look at Earth and say how many times do you have to experience war to find out that this doesn’t work for you? And this is of course, is a questions to which there is no answer. It’s a rhetorical question.
Some people apparently have to experience it many, many times but this is again the outcome of free will where you have to say some life-streams need to experience this more times than others and how can you really judge what an individual life-stream should or shouldn’t experience. If you judge this then you are going into the fallen mindset where you think you know better than other people, what they should experience and how they should experience life. As ascended masters we are not in that business.
