Whenever I consider the question of “what path am I on?” I come across a fundamental distinction.
There are two tribes in spirituality: (1) The “Here and Now” folks and (2) the “Going Higher and Deeper” folks.
Until recent times, I’d have thought that I need to choose between the two. But now I see there’s a time to “be here now” and a time to “go higher or deeper.”
And, even more significant to myself, I see that what I do, as an ethnographer of Ascension, is that I go higher and deeper into the Here and Now.
Sooner or later, doing that takes one from the external realm to the internal. And then the fun really begins.
I look at the process I’m following in this moment. Here it is: Everything active I’m bringing to stillness and everything still I’m making active. If it doesn’t survive that process, it wasn’t eternal.
I see my inner space as a wonderful canvas to paint on, the ultimate paradise to explore, the treasure house of love, bliss and ecstacy, without at least a little taste of which life loses its flavor.
Predominantly I explore this inner space by feeling into it. An intellectual discussion of it is like eating dry, flavorless oats for me right now.
An experiential discussion would have to include love and bliss to interest me at this moment. I’m going higher and deeper into the Here and Now of love and bliss.
I have to add that I’ve become far more meditative than I was. I don’t know how this will work after the Reval. It probably won’t. These are my last few days of peace, in all likelihood. And I’m using them to go higher and deeper into my Here and Now.
