Session 6: Entering a Different Reality
This session might be called “applied metaphysics,” because it is probably the most practical of the entire course. Here I offer my thoughts on the process of transitioning into another reality. It isn’t just about some kind of technique. Because reality is a relationship, for it to change, you have to change too; you have to be ready for a new kind of relationship. In this session I discuss a bit more about magic and miracle, cynicism and fear, readiness and willingness, and ceremony and prayer. The last 10 or 15 minutes I believe are the capstone of the whole course. They are dense with information on multiple levels and may reward repeated listening.
Taking it back to the person, here are some reflections I offered after someone on our team received from alarming news about his father, which brought us into a reality prior to story. A real, human moment. Such moments are more important than any philosophy in undoing the foundation pieces of a death-denying death-dealing culture and transitioning into a culture of sacred life.
Review of This Session’s Invitation
The invitation for this session is not a willful action or practice. It operates on a subconscious level by bringing awareness to the preciousness of our moments with the people and places we love. Personally, I take those for granted a lot. By naming them and bringing special attention to them and holding that consciousness, we can together elevate their stature in our lives.
