As we meditate and otherwise explore our inner dimensions, we become increasingly familiar with the contours of that inner territory. We feel into who we are on so many different levels. We get to know the feel of our bones, our muscles, our emotions, our conceptual capabilities, our ideas about ourselves, our noisy monkey-mind, our direct knowing and we stretch into what higher realms are also within our reach.
We may explore the downward stretch into connection with Earth and with the whole human experience we are at one with in our roots. Our ancestors and our relatives the plants and animals and all of life meet us there in Oneness, giving us a base, an unshakable foundation on which to build a life for ourselves that is a natural outgrowth of that natural line of development, of evolutionary progress and of belonging to something quite beyond the self of our past.
The old isolated self, the old base of operations (the one that was built from our thinking) is no longer capable of leading us forward.
We find we can begin to reach upwards into a newly opening dimension of human consciousness right now. Something new is seeming to be available to us here, something almost like another dimension, an internal one. We are able to make an upward stretch into territory that was not there before. A new capability is coming alive in us. It seems to hold all of our future possibilities and call us forward individually and collectively – to enter into our evolutionary next step. and to invite the future possibilities that wish to unfold within it.
