I like this particular post on the process of waking up, or “Ascension.” It’s always interesting, very clear, and I very much agree with the focus on attunement to Earth as key.
However, while I applaud the idea of trying to discern “developmental stages,” the process of “waking up,” at least so far in my life, feels much messier and sometimes confusing, with long periods of stasis, then sudden jumps, then circling back and jumping ahead, and so on. The whole business of trying to capture a squirming spiritual/psychological/biological process reminds me of Kubler-Ross and her five stages of dying. Useful as a heuristic, but I dare you to try to force your own squishy experience within these or any bounds!

Given that he’s known the truth for so long, I’m amazed at his longevity and equanimity. To me, that’s even more astonishing than the perspective he has been bringing us, year after year, for so long. What a beautiful soul.
