Intellectual, experiential, and realized knowledge….
We’re building a conversation about higher-dimensional states brick by brick.
I’m going to add a brick by borrowing a word from Werner Erhard for our use, and giving it my own meaning. (1)
However it may or may not have been used by anyone up till now, by the power vested in me as a human being, I’m going to bestow the following meaning on the word “transformation”: For me it means the inner explosion or other similar event that triggers or sends us into a higher state of consciousness.
The Divine Mother talked about Ascension as beginning in what I conceive of as transformation:
Divine Mother: [The sudden aspect of Ascension] is that feeling — well, it is more than a feeling; it is a knowing; it is ignition — it is that feeling that you have been switched on to a different frequency, and it happens suddenly. You may be working at it, working at it, working at it, and then you wake up one morning, and you see, perceive, feel, and know differently. (3)
So a moment of ignition, of switching frequencies, which happens suddenly.
Three phenomena go together: bliss, transformation, and realization.
I know that bliss causes realization. I don’t know if bliss causes transformation.
First because transformation happens so fast that I could not say much about it or vouch for what I felt. I can discern little abut the mechanism of transformation itself.
Second because we seem to end in bliss as a result of transformation. But whether that’s because bliss exists at the level we end up at or bliss played a role in us getting there – similar to the role orgasm plays in elevating our pleasure – I don’t know.
Whatever their cause, transformative moments result in a radical discontinuity in consciousness accompanied by a dramatic increase in bliss, which factor encourages realization. (4)
At the moment of transformation, I explode with bliss and realize whatever matter I was focused on.
Along with realizations, my experiential state is transformed from its everyday mode of relative dullness to an expanded, liberated, blissful state of extreme satisfaction.
Transformation, in the way I’m using the word, is High Noon, the last day of mortality (so to speak) and the first day of immortality, the “end of the world,” the impetus, urge, or push that sends us across the dividing line, the finish line, into critical mass, and then explosion.
Transformative moments are the sudden side of enlightenment. Meditation is an example of the gradual side.
Realization itself may be thought of as seeing and understanding from a higher level. When we return to everyday consciousness, we say we bring through a “realization.”
Transformative moments can also be the end result of paradigmatic breakthrough. We can live with and then emerge from cognitive dissonance by an instantaneous breakthrough in context or paradigm, as a result of or accompanied by a transformative moment.
They can be minor like an “Aha!” or major like Sahaja Nirvikalpa Samadhi or what we call Ascension and the Mother calls “ignition.”
The most major transformation – Ascension – sees us leave the Third/Fourth Dimension or frequency and enter a higher one. For us that’s the Big Bang.
So transformation now has the special meaning for me of the inner explosion or other similar nevent that sends us into a higher state of consciousness.
We’re working to address the deficiency of words or conversations about the higher states by building a lexicon. This is my entry for “Transformation.”
(1) Words are symbols upon which meaning is freely and arbitrarily bestowed. After Leslie White. I’m freely bestowing my own meaning on the word “transformation.”

Other sages have called it salvation, redemption, rapture, vijnana, moksha, liberation from birth and death, nirvana, buddhahood, etc.

(4) It’s bliss that lifts us up to a level where, if we’ve been considering a matter, solutions become clear to us. We then bring them back to our everyday consciousness as “realizations.”
No bliss as with a truncated experience of Brahmajnana and we may as well be watching a movie. It dazzles us but has very little other impact. Michael’s comments are germane here:
Steve: [Emptiness of mind] was followed next by what appeared to be the kundalini completing its circuit at the seventh chakra [i.e., Brahmajnana or God-Realization]. Is that in fact what happened?
Archangel Michael: Yes. …
Steve: Hmm, interesting! Ordinarily you would experience Brahmajnana at that point but I felt that it had been muted, toned down.
AAM: When you use the term “dramatic enlightenment experiences”[as I did earlier], you are talking about Nirvana. You are talking about the unity of all with One.
It is not to say that you will not experience that, but you cannot (well, you can if you wish; it is a choice to) simply remain in that state of unity, of One, or be fully conscious, in service, in action….
So, it is a toning down, if anything. It really is the middle ground. …
You know that enlightenment is right there in front of you. It is yours to access. But if you are in service, you will not choose to live there. …
You can think of it as keeping two feet firmly on the ground. (Archangel Michael in a personal reading with Steve Beckow through Linda Dillon, Feb. 14, 2012.)
