Again, one of the things I’m doing in this interlude before the Reval is going deeply within. This is my Ascension ethnography of an inner exploration.
Only a profound anchoring in the present or now moment is sufficient to open the portal in consciousness that the now moment is.
On numerous occasions, I’ve passed through the portal of the now moment to another domain of consciousness. I gave them names like the Silver Bullet, the Flame in the Heart, Porteau Cove, etc. In them I was expanded, confident, stable, secure.
We called these “peak moments” back in the days, and they followed as a result of a heightened experience, a breakthrough in apprehension of the truth, or a moment of self-realization.
We can’t know the truth of this assertion until we experience its truth: Now moments are a portal into another, more expanded level of consciousness. Once you pass through it, you know what I’m talking about. Until you have, I may as well be speaking Greek.
In this case, we may not know or have forgotten that there are subplanes to dimensions. Just because another level of consciousness has been reached doesn’t mean it was the Fifth Dimension.
In the Astral world – which is the Fourth Dimension on the spirit side – there are Lower, Middle, and Higher Summerlands: These are subplanes.
So here too our peak moments may have carried us up a subplane for a moment.
They were glimpses of a land further down the road, for sure, but not the promised land.
Later I did see the promised land and I’ve described it so many times I’d better spare you yet another version. Just enter “heart opening” in the search box (in quotation marks).
The heart opening of March 13, 2015 was head-and-shoulders beyond a peak moment. And yet it was only the first of all the remaining, higher experiences, according to sages, before we finally “get there.” (1)
In the course of it all, I see the problem of communication that faced the sages long ago. How does one communicate the fact that the now moment is a doorway into a higher dimension to one who hasn’t experienced it? It seems impossible.
Before experiencing it, nothing said makes any sense. There’s nothing to hang it on. It doesn’t fit any known experience. Listeners or readers may feel frustrated. And nothing more I can say helps.
And yet, the moment one experiences it, all mystery is gone. A flash of recognition occurs. And immediate understanding is there. One never needs a word of explanation after that.
Higher-dimensional Love is like that: It isn’t understood before experiencing it; it’s instantly recognized after. A taste of it and the mystery is gone.
Bliss and peace are the same. No way to describe them to people who haven’t experienced them and no need to describe them to people who have.
I could be silent. But that isn’t the contract I signed. I agreed to circle around and circle around, chipping away at the dilemma of communication, coming closer and closer, by successive approximations, to the truth.
(1) That was a fourth-chakra heart opening. The remaining experiences are: sixth-chakra cosmic consciousness; seventh-chakra Brahmajnana; and a permanent and full heart opening, Sahaja Samadhi, Ascension.
