The essence of the phenomena is to remove us from our bodily
enslavement to mundane and materialistic propensities. The

It is only beyond this threshold that any true spiritual progression
beyond the ordinary comprehension attains an approachable air.

fears and enables us to embrace the unknown darkness of the void,
so that we may see the souls luminosity shine within us as it
reveals our path to salvation and deliverance from our internal
hellish projection of the crouching ego.
Carlos Castaneda in
The Teachings of Don Juan, through
his conversations with the Shaman dissects fear as the first enemy
on the path of a man of knowledge;
"And thus he has
stumbled upon the first of his natural enemies:
Fear! A terrible
enemy treacherous, and difficult to overcome.
It remains concealed
at every turn of the way, prowling, waiting. And if the man,
terrified in its presence, runs away, his enemy will have put an
end to his quest."

can we attain an unobstructed channel of communication and
interactions with higher realms.
heightened states of awareness
we are exposed to the fractal nature of change and interactions with
the worlds around us, and our distractions in those states are
designed to feed off our personalities need for self.

through thoughts, in the form of introspection, and provide a
tangible outlet for the internal uprising.
But as time passes these
realizations seep their way into our subconscious and forever
upgrade our intuition to more pure expressions and perception.
The purpose of our spiritual progression is to feel without
restrictions of thought...
In order to experience
reality as it unfolds we must be free of all ideas of freedom.
Only then can we truly believe, anything is possible,
and with this belief
and a purified will we can move in worlds alien to our
current conditioning but closer to our higher selves and sip
from the pool of the collective unconscious, where answers to
all the wonders and mysterious truths about our origins,
existence and potential lie…
