Attaining heights, slipping a little

ON THE ATTAINMENT OF HIGHER CONSCIOUSNESS
Have you experienced what felt like
a complete final breakthrough
in which immense spiritual love
pretty nearly overwhelmed you?
Were you quite sure in the face of
such ineffable joy that the cares of
the world had had their last hurrah?

And then, finally, you “needed to”
come back and “face the world”
again at which time you “had to”
assume your “usual place” in it?
And all too swiftly the cherished
position, the pinnacle, evaporated?

I defy you to look again.
Look right at the point you had attained.
You see, it’s still there!!!
It’s gonna need some nurturing now
to bring it fully back and maintain it.
But be sure of this: it is still there.

Be still and know – Etter

BE -S -T -I -L -L- AND KNOW THAT I AM GOD.
Psalms 46:10 – there is no coming if one truly understands what it means to merely be still, to even silence the mind and BE in His presence. The “know” in this passage implies not a thought process but rather a knowing without the need for thought. to simply quiet the very inner presence and be aware.
