Rewind history ten years or so (to the early 2000’s) and the word “ascension” started becoming popular in the New Age community. We’re all going to ascend, they said. The date? December 21, 2012. Only it didn’t start as that because apparently that isn’t the true date the Mayan calendar, from which Ascension’s date was chosen, was based. That was sometime in late 2011.
Which also didn’t happen.
That aside, this event was supposed to happen on that date. As history will attest, it clearly didn’t. I don’t know about you, but I certainly didn’t notice groups of people suddenly vanish from society and ascend into the heavens.
Another concept that I am opposed to in the spiritual/new age arenas is the notion of “levels of development” (e.g being an “old soul” is better than being a “young soul”). It’s very unhealthy, ingrained in our society and getting rid of it will allow you to be happier and more productive in ways that are important to you. So I wrote a simple alternative that I’ll share with you in a moment.
Some people will get this right away while others may struggle. That’s normal. Don’t get frustrated and give up. Perservere. That’s a good lesson to learn for any awakening person.
Imagine you are a vast, eternal consciousness. For you there are no beginnings or endings, no start point or destination, there is only the journey, a continuous, glorious process of self-evolution and change within the moment. As part of that evolution, you desire to understand what you are. So you set about dissociating tiny fragments or “personalities” from yourself, imbuing them with your essence and letting them think and feel for a time that they are in anyway different from you.
