“Three Steps Forward, Seven Steps Back” Spiritual Immersion – Taking the Plunge, with Dr. Rosie Kuhn, #123
Three Steps Forward, Seven Steps Back
As I mentioned in a previous podcast, we have assumptions and expectations about what will occur because we are choosing a spiritual path. One of those assumptions is that if I do the work I will make continual progress. This is true!
However…. Doing the work may require revisiting dark, dank, and gooey places over and over again. That’s right, those places you thought you were already “done” with have more to teach you, and, oh, there is so much to learn and experience in those dark and dank places. They are so rich with possibility!
So, the moments of revelation, the moments when you experience rewards from the heavens, the moments when you feel you have finally arrived, those are the very moments that can plunge you into another round of goo! No kidding.
This process is kind of like being on a teeter-totter. Sometimes you are up and sometimes you are down. Neither is bad nor wrong – just different.
In this podcast I use the analogy of what it takes to climb a mountain such as Everest. There are a number of basecamps. It may take weeks or months at each basecamp to acclimate to that environment. Sometimes you have to revisit or retreat to basecamps at lower altitudes to assist you in adjusting to those at higher altitudes. Depending on the level of devotion or dedication to your vision of reaching your peak, you’ll willingly revisit those areas over and over again, knowing that you will inevitably reach your highest knowing and your highest contribution to the world.
