I heard a great Bible story today called the “Parable of the Tares.” The story is about a man who sowed wheat in his field. But while he slept an enemy came and sowed ‘tares’ or weeds among the wheat, then crept off …

When the servants of the man found out about the ‘tares’ they wanted to pull them up. But the man thought that might injure the good wheat that was growing in the field. Instead, the man asked his servants to let both grow together till the harvest. Then at that time the reapers would pull up the tares first, bundle them, and burn them. The wheat, which would be all that was left in the field, might then be gathered into the man’s barn …
Matthew 13:24-30 (KJV, public domain)
24 “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:
25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
26 “But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.
27 “So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?
28 “He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?
29 “But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.
30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”
When I heard the sermon about the Parable of the Tares, the pastor made a very good point that we must stay awake all the time … insofar as we may … so as to prevent the Enemy (which to my way of thinking means Satan and his works) from contaminating or polluting the good fruits of our Christian labors. The pastor explained how easy it is to slip into a state of sleep, even in the daytime. He explained how important it is to be awake and saying our prayers, instead of sleeping through church services.
I also thought of how The Enemy enters our dreams at night, with thoughts we Christians feel to be wholly foreign to us. From that I imagined how important it must be to counter these inimical thought forms and nightmarish dreams with a good prayer on arising every morning. That way, I feel, we may strive to stunt the growth of whatever that stealthy, dark and evil being may sow in our psyches while we dream on, all unaware of his endeavors.
I had some other ideas about this Parable that I would like to mention here. For instance, one might feel the Parable expresses there are both good and evil men in the world, whom God (the householder in the Parable) allows to dwell together on Earth. Then one might interpret that on the Day of Judgment … which many Christians feel will come to pass during the Ascension process … God will winnow the wheat from the tares, so that some people will be cast into the fires of Hell, and others will be gathered into the Holy Congregation that He shelters near Him.
There are Ascensioneers who agree with this idea. They feel … or used to feel, until the year 2012 … that only a portion of human beings would Awaken to Christ Consciousness, to the ‘Fifth Dimension’, during the Ascension process. Back then, they thought that other human beings would go through another long cycle of Earthly experiences before their Souls were ready and eager to go through an Ascension process to take place in the distant future.
Then at about the time of The Shift in 2012, quite a few Ascensioneers began to feel that Earth herself was arising and awakening, and that all the beings on her, within her, or above her, were also inevitably becoming more refined in energy and consciousness … that there would be no exceptions, either through enduring the Ascension process, or through death, to what some Christians call the Tribulation.
This is what the Ascensioneers think of as ‘burning away of the ‘dross’; of the ‘malware’ installed by The Enemy, and which is foreign to our true nature; or as dissolving of the Soul wounding encountered during our Earthly experiences. Everyone on Earth, they felt, was taking part in the Ascension process. Everyone’s energy field was being upgraded from one sort of energy so that it would include a more refined sort of energy. That was because we children of Earth, they felt, could not but follow closely in her footsteps.
Sidebar: Prep Work for the Refiner’s Fire
The fire of refinement of our energy field as we enter the Fifth Dimension might seem a fearful notion, or we might ready ourselves for the experience with a feeling of faith, and of hope in a New Tomorrow.
Whether we experience fear or joy, whether we feel a burning sensation … as is oft mentioned in Christianity as being ‘the woeful fires of Hell’ … or whether we feel blissful upliftment … pictured in the Christian world as standing at the right hand of Christ, near the Throne of God … depends on how we prepare ourselves emotionally for the Ascension process.
The video below offers an example of prep work for a pleasing experience of energetic refinement during Ascension …

I feel the idea that all human beings will be marching along together, in ‘lock step’, during the Ascension process to be a little misleading, a little facile, considering the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality I and other Ascensioneers have channeled.
Surely on an Earth whose fundaments are free will and the All, in a Universe comprising many alternate timelines, many alternate dimensions, many alternate realities, there must be the longer ‘Ascension ride’ for those whose Souls are eager to acquire greater wisdom through physical experience in the third dimension, and through astral experience in the fourth dimension, while on the way to greater understanding of Christ Consciousness in the fifth dimension … must there not?
Given the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality, there is ample leg room for each of us to experience this grand sweep of the Ascension process … a time-space continuum that suits each of us to a tee. Yet in our own optimum Awareness timeline and dimension, there may be many other seeming human forms whose Awareness timeline and dimension is not our own.
To us, they may seem to be sleepwalking through the Ascension process. It may seem to us that they have ‘missed the boat’. In reality, though, it may be that they are wide awake and ascending, here on Earth, in a space-time continuum that is slightly different from our own.
Yet through God’s mysterious wonders, I feel we may all emerge in the realm of Christ Consciousness at what may seem to our human sensibilities to be exactly the same moment. That is because the Fifth Dimension exists beyond Time and Space, in the Eternal Now. Thus we may anticipate we will all be together, in one grand instant, in the presence of Christ in His great glory.
From my fellow Ascensioneers I hear that, from that Eternal Now, He may teach us to dip into this timeline or that … into this dimension or that … so that we and our fellow Ascensioneers may once more enjoy Earthly life, through His Will, and by His Grace. But in so doing, we might always remember that Eternity from which we descend into the Earth realms, and that Grace on whose wings we flit through the halls of time and space, however briefly.
In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
