Switching from current affairs to spirituality, again, is like moving house.
I move from one neighborhood to another. In this case the work of moving takes the same amount of effort as it always has.
But here I’m moving back to an old familiar neighborhood … I was going to say haunt! … spirituality.
And one of the things I’m doing is asking myself, what’s new? How are things now?
Pretty well the best news for me is that I’m finding it easier to contact bliss these days.
A mere breath in will cause it to rise. And it’s more palpable when it does.
Moreover, we usually associate bliss with sitting still, steeped in enjoyment, lost to the world, wafted away, etc. And it can be all those things if we allow it full scope.
On the other side of things, I’ve always worried that love and bliss depart if we remove our attention from them.
I’ve been experimenting with them recently, with seeing if I can carry the blissful state over into everyday life and activity.
Implicit in my experiment is the assumption that I can only be aware of one or the other at the same time. In other words, I see the situation as either/or.
But I can have my cake here and eat it too. I can have both bliss and everyday activities.
On the higher dimensions, as I know from visits, we do. There’s nothing implicit in either state that I know of that says we can’t have both.
I’m steeped in lack thinking. But there’s no end to bliss. It isn’t metered out by anyone. It’s not like water where you turn the tap on and off. It just flows and flows, becoming the background of obviousness. (1)
In the higher realms, bliss is … what? beyond copious? … universal? … the air we breathe? We’re immersed in an Ocean of Bliss/Love/Joy.
In nature – or supernature – there’s no lack. Why then would there be any lack of bliss?
Be that as it may, the greater ease of accessibility is one indication to me that the energies are doing the work of slowly transforming us.
Faster and we’d be reporting strange disorders and diseases with no names (just kidding).
The Company of Heaven said the journey would be as good as the destination. From my standpoint life is just peaking and peaking and peaking.
For sure I can’t wait to see what lies around the next corner. But for me now that next corner is internal. Meditation and the exploration of the internal world are what are calling me now.
I should have known that that would be the outcome of studying Ascension.
But I didn’t.
So here I go! It’s either experiment or exploration now.
