Ascension Is a Process, Not a Destination
“The key to growth is the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness.”
— Lao Tzu
After climbing through the jungle, making my way through the grueling forest — dense and populated with bewildering trails — I saw a clearing on a ridge, on what I sensed must be the top of the great mountain in the clouds. As I made my way to the clearing, I saw that this was not the top. Though it was beautiful and magnificent, it was only a plateau. And from there, I could see what I now assumed to be the peak in the distance, but I knew that there was perhaps another, more massive mountain behind it too. And on the story goes.
There are many narrative accounts as well as fictional and metaphorical stories that ring out the same truth in the same way as the above narrative. Many of us have had this experience, on one level or another, of coming to a point in our lives that we thought would be our destination only to discover there’s more beyond it.
