Where’s the fire? Deep inside, as is the way of the dragon.
Dreams, emotions, thoughts and words are resonant portals within the astral. They tend to aggregate. There are “higher” and “lower” vibratory thoughts, and there is also harmonious or dissonant, elemental or spiritual, all sorts of coordinates. I don’t need to modulate my spiritual state of being to move in the astral. There are levels that seem to ignore human thought, that with a force of attraction entrain individuals and groups, and there are levels that seem to require human thought. It’s quite a flow. A sort of spiritual info super highway. I find it sort of boring. It can feel almost like a sort of random shuffling that can feel like jumping or falling, like the locations are like a deck of cards.
Using “will” to travel in the astral only goes so far. There is a nature and a terrain of sorts. The only thing strength can do is give you the first glimpse. Otherwise, you navigate with the quality or “signature” of thought. Desire can only take you so far. Eventually, you need unity of will and desire, true unity, the center. Transcendence.
The realms described in astral are a hologram. Every place is a part of every other place. Time and space are meaningless there, which doesn’t mean that there is no orienting or relating, there indeed is. Just the question of finite/infinite is not relevant. The wailers dwell with the enlightened. As it says in the Bible, “say neither low here nor low there for the kingdom of god is within you.” The structure of the astral is infinitely intermeshed and all the chakras are constructs. The house of many mansions. They are not the kingdom, and eventually, you must move on but you don’t die in transcendence. You discover that out isn’t outside. It isn’t up or down, forward or back. Your body still lives, perhaps more so then it ever would have without the insight.
How do you handle the superficial emotions and feelings? You see them as they are. They are a river. On that side, those energies aren’t “in you making you do things”. They empower your incarnation. They are the river lethe, the river of forgetting. You don’t have to love, love is just fact. Those emotions that are really warped derivatives of love, they are just seen as a bit messy like fertilizer in a field. Ultimately, no big deal. Here, transcendence has been called the death gate. There, it’s the incarnation gate. The devil to one, an angel to another. There is no contradiction in transcendence, only the one unity. No war in heaven, just different human reactions to it on earth. Same heaven, same celestial realm, same heart of the astral plane, all the same place.
You can merge, but you never really merge, because there isn’t a point to merge at, nor a point to part to. The element of the energy is your signature. You have a whole world in the astral that’s linked to your soul. When people say they have merged, it’s in the sense that we all merge. They have learned the connections, the paths in each other. This is the basis of what people call telepathy.
Where you are in the astral is not on a ladder. It would be better to consider it an infinite flat plane, but folded or capable of folding. So distance over the plane can seem huge, or non existent. That is the astral. If you visualize a ladder you will interface with it as a ladder. Unfold it. Smooth out the vibration, the cry of love. The memory creates the fold in astral space and in your brain. Nature likes folds. That’s the center. It’s your true center.
The design leads like a path, my friend. You can go where you please but you will feel the path, or feel being off of it.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
