by Mark on 10-18-2013In the Christian bible the ascension of the Jesus figure is vividly portrayed. And we see in other religions descriptions of the holy ones rising up into the etheric domain. But are these stories of humans ascending to meet the Divine simply metaphorical, the product of the imaginations of some over zealous scribes? Or can we, after the prescribed duties, commandments and rituals are considered, literally take our physical bodies into the non-physical world?
Consider this poem from Unveiled Mysteries, by Godfre Ray King,  (go through the link for a free download of this inspiring piece) sacred-texts.com
Yes, as the poem implies, on the path of awakening the Soul becomes enflamed with the desire for knowledge. This knowledge is knowledge of the Divine or "the Truth of the matter," as Seth calls it. You are on a personal journey and so the Truth you are discovering is the Truth of your personal Identity. Your awakening, therefore, is an awakening to self: your Higher Self. You begin to uncover the Truth, first, the Truth of you personally, and secondly, the Truth of your world i.e.; everything that is not you: your planet, your environment, your family, your mate. "All secrets are revealed," as Seth has described this process. And as the Truth becomes known you ARE brought up, emotionally and spiritually, and you DO ascend, in the sense that you drop your shame, your fear, your anger and all of the negativity of the past. You drop your attachments to the physical world.
But practical ascension does not mean that you lose ALL contact with the physical world. For you DO maintain contact with the Third Dimension, even as you may be exploring the Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Dimensions. "The multidimensional identity abides consciously in both the physical and the non-physical worlds," says Seth. Multitasking, he calls it.
