“Greetings. We are the Arcturian Council. We are pleased to connect with all of you.
We have enlightened you to a certain extent, but enlightenment will always be an inside job. It’s not something that you learn. It’s something that you experience. It’s something that you bestow upon yourself when you feel that it is time for you to make a shift in the way that you are relating to yourself, to others, and to your world.
Enlightenment is a rite of passage. In many ways, it is unique to the individual who experiences it. Enlightenment is that moment when all aspects of you are awakened to the truth of who you are, and in that moment the light that is inside of you, the light that is at the heart of you, is able to shine more brightly and be expressed through you and by you in your unique way.
In many ways, it is a beginning. It is the beginning of your journey as a fully conscious and awake being who then seeks to know him or herself in the most authentic way. The most authentic way to know yourself is to experience yourself through your connections to others. When you see everyone else as a projection of you and an aspect of the totality of who you are, that’s when you know you have reached that state of enlightenment.
You see no separation. You see no need to judge anything, and you are completely present in the moment with your current experience. Now, as wonderful as all of that sounds, if it were the only valid experience for humanity, then you would just go right there. But it isn’t. It is one experience, and it is not the purpose of your lives.
The purpose of your lives is not to reach some enlightened state of being. The purpose of your lives is to move through everything that is along that path of enlightenment and to experience all of it. There is so much that you are experiencing that you might not consider to be positive or spiritual, but it is a part of your journey and it is a part of who you are.
The more you embrace all that life has to offer, the quicker your path is to enlightenment. And once you reach that knowing, that experience, and that projection, you will be ready for your next journey. You can always go deeper. There is always more to explore, and nothing, no state of being will ever be the ultimate or the end of your experiences and your journey.
We are the Arcturian Council, and we have enjoyed connecting with you.”
