I’d like to make some connections among distinctions we’ve been making and an observation about changes in our vocabulary, manner of speaking, languages, etc.
First of all, I’d like to connect “completion” with “our natural state.”
Sometimes, our entire point of view is that we’re “getting to” completion; well be complete one day; we’re getting there, improving, making progress; we’re on our way to being complete.
That way of speaking applies to Third Dimensionality. But it isn’t very useful when applied to a higher-dimensional concept like “completion.”
If I were to say why, I’d probably speak in Third-Dimensional terms again and they too probably would not be useful. But I’ll go ahead anyways, searching for a way.
Why? Because at an absolute level or even a higher-dimensional level, we’re always, already complete. Completion is who we are: The soul is complete. So it isn’t a place to get to; it’s who we already are, right now and for all time.
And there is overburden on the mind and heart, residue from past trauma, all manner of what the Buddha might have called “impurities,” that prevent us from experiencing our completion.
Nevertheless, so long as we see things from Third Dimensionality, then a lot of us will continue to discuss things that way.
It isn’t a case of “getting to” something. It IS a case of letting go of incompletions. It’s a process of divesting, discarding, surrendering, as we’d hang up a coat when we come indoors.
Just let an incompletion go, as you’d let go a piece of kleenex go into the wastebasket. Drop. Fall. Gone.
If we’re incomplete, then, in some way and for some reason, there’s something we’re holding onto. We’re holding onto the incompletion, to the idea of being incomplete, to an issue connected to incompletion, or something.
One problem that presents itself to me: I haven’t finally and permanently severed my loyalty to Third-Dimensional language. But it’s getting increasingly difficult to talk about higher-dimensional things using the vocabulary we commonly accept today.
Getting to vs. coming from incompletion is one example. Discussing ordinary vs. transformative love is another. But name any significant human domain and soon it’ll become ripe for updating, revising, discarding in ways that accord with higher dimensionality.
In past ages, only spiritual masters and their students considered puzzles like these. Now they’re confronting us all. And we haven’t the time to go off and meditate on the truth of them. We’re going to have to get things quicker than that. (That shows up for me like an unpleasant truth.)
When we “expand” our consciousness, we’re really relaxing muscular tension, opening our hearts and minds, and revealing more of our consciousness.
We the personality, the phase of ourselves that we’re choosing to speak through at this moment, are getting out of our own way, so to speak. We’re actually allowing what was already there, room – a deeper level of consciousness – more expression.
To rephrase something Krishna said, few are used to speaking in these ways. Fewer still who speak in these ways have experiential or realized knowledge of it. Few who do speak this way and have a sense of what they’re talking about meet with comprehension from those they share with. So there’s lots of work to be done in creating a higher-dimensional language for new concepts fast coming towards us and gaining acceptance for it.
