Even though you sense an unknown world of aliveness around you, it is not possible to access it until the spell that you are undeserving is broken. This trance is subtle and is deeply embedded, the result of both personal and collective misperception.
The cleansing of this perception requires full-spectrum attunement and reorganization at psychic, emotional, somatic, and transpersonal levels. But the guidance is already here, it is not something which need be produced for it is not caused. The signs, symbols, and colors are wired into you, but are often hidden and must be accessed in non-conventional ways. There is no temple greater than your own body.
You are not broken nor in need of fixing, nor is something cosmically wrong with you that must be repaired by way of spiritual process. You are not a project to be solved. But something majestic has been forgotten and displaced. This vision cannot be released into a field of self-abandonment and turning from the fire, but only into an environment of kindness and presence, where the circuitry can be re-encoded with empathy, attunement, and new levels of creativity.
This journey will inevitably require an encounter with the darkness and will thus not be all that popular. There are no quick steps, no fantasies of consistent feelings of happiness, no guarantees of getting everything we want. Thank god. In the crucible is where the raw material for the work of love is found, buried inside the rage, the emptiness, the heartbreak, and the disappointment.
By way of the processes of deflation and reorganization, we step into the wholeness of the sacred world, which will never, ever conform to the way we thought it would be. It is unprecedented here. A place of wisdom. Nothing is to be discarded any longer. The path is everywhere.
The “awe-full” qualities of horror and terror may share essential roots with those underlying transformative states such as flow, awe, presence, timelessness and ecstasy.
