Received from Merlin sometime in the late 1990s… I have been so very blessed on my spiritual path to have had wonderful Teachers―some of them physically incarnate and others dwellers in less material realms. Merlin has been with me since nearly the beginning. He would say even before that, that I just wasn’t aware yet. He has served as guide, teacher and friend through three tumultuous decades.
Power is Love
While it has been close to, if not, twenty years since I hastily transcribed this on a sheet of notebook paper, I have only shared it with one other person that I can recall. A few months ago it was made plain to me that it was time to begin sharing some of the accumulated information I have garnered from Ascended Masters, Archangels and other Beings of Light along the long and difficult Way.
Today is the day I am guided to share this. These were, with some edits for clarity on my part, and with some updates provided by Merlin himself, his words…
Power! We’ve spoken at length on this subject over the years. Still, you are not quite at a point of complete understanding or knowingness where this phenomenon is concerned. As I have repeated many times―“Power is Love”. And that conflicts with the perception of Power that is generally held on the Earth at present, does it not?
If this is so, and I say that it is, then it must be a very fundamental part of the Grand Illusion we have been attempting to dispel. It must indeed be that Mirror which separates the material dual universe from the universe of the Triad which is Light.
What is Power within the strictures of the corporeal Earth plane? It can be defined as control, as authority, as influence, as might, as an ability or faculty to which one may aspire but may or may not ever acquire. It becomes a matter of struggle, because as we know, some have it, most want it, and no one wants anyone else to have more of it than they themselves have. Most of the history of this planet and much of the prehistory also is based on this rather simplistic premise― the pursuit of Power.
Traditionally, the pursuit of Power has been a primarily male (or masculine) occupation. Men have fought countless wars over it, committed atrocities for it, and very literally forsook their humanity to attain it. This was not the pursuit of Love! The very idea and ideals of Love have been inverted by this Mirror. Instead of honoring the sacred river of Love that flows forth into Creation through the medium of the feminine womb, a religion was formed around the ejection of the phallic seed into that womb. The mad proliferation of gross material―the male equating his Godhood with this ability to fill the world with flesh stamped with his genetic imprint, whether the Cosmic Spirit was available to inhabit it or not is the root of all this struggle for Power. And it has degenerated from there. Power came to be associated with the material, with acquisition and ownership, and the might required to maintain it, to protect it from all those others who would steal it if they could.
Look at the history of the human race―it is overladen with tales of slavery, fiefdoms, harems, kingdoms, empires, colonies, subject states, territories, protectorates, etc., ad nauseum―all of those things aimed at the acquiring of Power by subjugating other human beings. Now, to get down to the “nuts and bolts” (Interesting phrase, eh? Men have nuts, don’t they, and the bolt is another phallic replica?) of this pursuit of power.
Think for awhile about the implements, the weapons that men have used in their unending quest for power. Let’s see―early on there were clubs, to be followed by knives, arrows, lances, swords, battering rams and so forth―every one of them a symbol of the male member, the erect and potent penis. Then, with the advancing of technology and the drive toward more efficient means of asserting power, there were guns, cannons, various kinds of projectiles, bombs and missiles. You can see where I am going with this. All of these things phallic, ejaculatory, and unmistakably invented by the male obsession with it’s genital energy center. When was anyone ever conquered by being enveloped in the vessica, the feminine vagina?
I told you long ago that Love was Power, that Power was Energy and that all Energy is sexual in nature. Well, power and sexuality are certainly enmeshed in the mass-consciousness of the humans on Earth. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, sex and love were separated, and that truly is the Mirror that was put into place to keep humanity from slipping back into the Void. For, as you can see, the sex which exists on Earth without Love is neither true sex, or true power. When access to the Fountain and the Love that flowed through it was lost, the memory of that Love dimmed quickly, but humankind remembered that sexuality was the inlet for that Power and seized upon that to the exclusion of all else.
Man remembered also, that the female had been the conduit of this power and came to the belief that she was purposely trying to withhold it, and that it could be taken from her by force. The female, though she had also forgotten that Love was the Power she once channeled, still intuited that love was an important ingredient in sex, and so became a victim of the very emotion she was trying to preserve.
Feminism (The Self-Rescuing Princess)
When Kwan Yin has spoken to you of the Great Separation, it is the separation of Love and Sex to which she refers. It is not the separation of awareness from God, though that is one of its effects, or the separation of male and female, though this is what prolongs and maintains it. It is simply the bastardization of Power that resulted from the schism between Sex and Love so long ago. Now we come to these strange and eventful times at the end of Earth’s history. The Fountain (The Void, Great Goddess, The Cosmic Mother) is becoming accessible again. Love once more flows forth from the Cosmos into this odd little pocket of fractured space, and yet it is nearly impossible to experience more than a trickle of that great Power, and that only among a very few.
(That number has increased substantially in the two decades since I initially received this information. GS)
Why is this? Because the Mirror hasn’t been shattered. It is high time that we relegated it to the dust bin, but it has been here for so long that it has become an integral part of Consciousness―a culture has been built around it, and if the Mirror breaks so must the very framework of human social structure. This is not such a bad thing to contemplate, but not an easy task to accomplish. Love again exists as an ideal in this world, but how many have yet equated it with the sexual imperative?
Just when we are needing most that female inclination to intuit that she once was Love, she has very nearly forgotten the inclination. She has observed mankind’s frantic scrabble for Power over the ages and has finally concluded that this pursuit of power is within her domain also. Through long suffering and hardship, she has honed her faculties of reason and logic, and has largely sacrificed her receptive intuitivity in the process. She has hardened her heart, strengthened her “physical” body and discerned that her vagina is a thing of great value. After all, men have been intent on prodding it through force, slavery, bribery and coercion for as long as she can remember. Just as the male ceased to see her as sacred, she has forgotten that co-mingling with him can bring any gratification beyond orgasm and the acquisition of temporal power. Just as the male has “stuck it to her” for so long, she now desires to stick it to him―using his own tactics, no less.
Finally, the struggle for power has been loosed from male dominance, not to become male pitted against female, the probability line that was once anticipated―through which the next stage of humankind’s clearing could be facilitated with relative ease and balance ultimately reached. But with everyone for him and herself, one doesn’t have to look very hard to see the impasse this sexual, power driven morass has reached.
Sex in a Box
Just look at the way the sexual vernacular has insinuated itself into office, boardroom and bureaucracy, and the vulgar connotations it has assumed. To screw someone, to fuck them over, to stick it to them, is to assert power over, while being screwed, fucked or stuck implies loss of same. Men who threaten another’s power are motherfuckers or cocksuckers, the women who do the same are bitches and ball-busters. Men quite commonly refer to women as cunts and pussies, reducing them, in essence, to genitals without value as human beings. Women do the same. Men are often pricks, fuckers and dicks rather than real people to them any longer.
Everywhere you turn, relationships, whether the traditional family-oriented type or the myriad of new forms that have been increasingly experimented with during the past several decades, are failing miserably. This is what occurs when the ethical and moral structures that have served to conceal the lack of love among them collapses. These structures were supposed to collapse under the weight of Truth and Love, dear ones, but instead they have been crushed by a power struggle the likes of which this old world has never seen. People are willing to prostitute themselves for this power in every conceivable fashion. Sex is the commodity, no matter how it is clothed, and power is currency in whatever form it appears.
People fuck their way up the corporate ladder. Other people find themselves fucking the powerful in order to bring them down. Sexual imagery is used to sell everything from cars to toothpaste. Television and other so called “entertainment” media pander to this thirst for power in every form, from the subtle violent/sexual signals buried in children’s shows, the blatant innuendo of prime time and on through the varying shades of primal violence and sexuality pervading the so-called adult programming. You have noticed that I used the word violence with sex in the last sentence, and that is because in this world, the two are virtually interchangeable. I will state, unequivocally that where there is sex, there is violence, and where there is violence, there is this world’s twisted version of sex.
It goes on and on. Pornography is in its heyday with all the technology at its disposal. Most of you are connected to one or more devices almost constantly now. No longer does one have to leave the privacy of home to experience all sorts of SEX, and one doesn’t have to risk relationship, emotional entanglement or loss of that personal feeling of power that can result from interacting with real people. Women happily open their legs for photographs and videos, because they feel their power pulsing through their pussies, and they less and less often feel any tug at their emotions or their Heart. Men exhibit their erect cocks like strutting birds, certain that how well hung they are confers some kind of instant status within the male hierarchy. And people fuck one another before these cameras, mindlessly and lovelessly, because they need to be noticed, to evoke some emotion, whether it is lust, admiration, jealousy or just titillation. Anything, to make other people feel something without having to risk giving something of themselves.
As for the watchers, the consumers of all this automatic Erotica, what do they get? They get to feel whatever these performances evoke without any danger of giving up their power to the ones who provoked these feelings. It is all the same thing, after all. The great majority of people on Earth have this deep need to feel something, to feel anything, yet they are terrified that they might have to give up their power to do so. Such is the anesthetizing effect of the Lack of Love.
Break the Mirror
It pervades deeper and deeper into the psyche, into the essence of the beings who inhabit this planet―this need to feel without the struggle for power which all experience says will result from that expression. Ones on Earth do not Trust. They have forgotten how to experience community and how to share themselves with their fellows. They have forgotten that there are entire realms of sexual expression that do not involve penetration and ejaculation. So they protect themselves from becoming the fuckee rather than the fucker by withdrawing further and further into the protective barrier of Ego identity. The Self and Selfishness have become the last bastion of defense against all those who would certainly take away their power if given the chance. It is a sad impasse. Humankind was meant to break the Mirror Themselves/Itself when the Time was ripe, but here it is nearly the end of Time, and it seems it cannot be done.
What then is the point of my diatribe you may wonder? To ask one more favor of the Light-workers, of those Awakening out of the long sleep to the possibility of Transformation and Ascension. We, the many Beings of Light who came to help restore Earth from the Fall, out of Love and concern for this planet and her children, put the Mirror into place all of those Eons ago. Now, it falls to us who have assumed physical form to Break it, to demonstrate the true Power of Love to these lost ones. I realize that what I ask goes beyond what many of you were prepared for, but I ask it anyway―for Love.
