I really like the relation to the ascending spiral, and the fact that providing our spiritual path has been given the devotion and practice throughout the entirety of our form bound existence, our essence is not lost to physical and/or mental regression.Nefastos wrote: But what it creates if our striving has been pure in its core is, that the new seemingly opposite phase will actually bring us closer to the original goal: the movement is the ascending spiral, rather than not-evolving zig zag.
However, in the case of, for example, mental and aging regression; would the uncontrollable loss of understanding and connection with the septenary principles and praxis not impact on the life long work that we had been devoted to up to that point?
If the understanding is not there, does the journey remain intact?
Similarly, I really like the approach to, and completely agree that this state of form is essentially the tool(s) that we must work with(in) for initiation, but if the moment with which an act such as the topics title was absolutely correct and done with love, understanding and will, would it not make any potential violence within the act null and void, and instead an act of love in the name of our devotion, integrity and journey?Nefastos wrote: For if we'd just try to unclothe ourselves from the crude matter, that can't be done without a work of very lengthy periods of time; any attempt to do so with the aid of violence will simply create repercussions & hindrances, for these things demand extreme subtlety, their essence being interwoven into most sublime levels of being. Instead, we should accept this state of being as our tools for initiation.
