Awakening is a horrible relief and is indeed gloriously difficult….it is not a “seasonal” situation….
Consciously one turns and recognizes the souvenirs…. of each bridge crossed
“There are two paths for anyone who is seeking to learn that which is kept hidden. One is to initiate into a society, secret or not, with traditions that are well-established. The other is to seek one’s own path and to forge the way by trial and error. Either choice is dangerous. In order to master the mysteries of the universe, one must bridge heaven and earth. The bridge is a world in itself.”
