The desire to look upon the Heavens, the inner worlds, and behold the “Immortals” is no doubt universal. And yet, I’m told that access to these worlds is limited only by the individual, only by my own true desire. It would appear that God, in It's Omniscience has conceived the perfect test of an individual's true desire – a continuing realization of who and what we are, that draws us ever nearer to the Heavens.
I consider it true that I am as great or as small as I realize I am. Hence, the only limit to my capacity to transcend present levels of awareness is in my ability to continually expand my consciousness through daily experiences, all the time asking “who am I, what am I”, those questions that can't be answered with words, but evolve through greater awareness of me within the life that is unfolding around me.
The preconceived ideas, the unfounded, unproved beliefs of earlier years acted as boundaries that limited my ability to be open and imagine possibilities that may be unique to me. They limited my freedom to experience, when experience is the testing ground for proving and disproving ideas, the testing ground of truth. It doesn't matter whether ideas are being given life, or exposed as illusions; the end result is the same in that truth comes to light, and the many layers that separate the outer and inner worlds are continually being stripped away.
And so, I look to the endless stream of daily experiences as opportunities to further bridge the gap between my human consciousness and my spiritual beingness, the outer and inner reality. I’m determined that I shall stand “amidst the Immortals; and dwelling in Divine Presence, I feel that I am now, this moment, closer than I have ever been.
