Pain is a great awakener



Gnosis = Crisis.

There are no somebodies here; no one is ever going to get anywhere by pursuing a path to enlightenment, whether by drugs, or yoga, or meditation, or philosophy, or sorcery, or Ufos, or anything; these are all just the ways we try to get what we want, to be somebody in our lives.

The space being held here doesn't allow for any of that; this isn't a space where you get to feel good about yourself, or to help others to feel good about themselves. This isn't a space where knowledge or intellectual understanding counts for anything, except insofar as it can be used to make and hold a space, a space for us all to move slowly into what we know to be true, and to surrender to that tiny, tiny bit.

No higher dimensions to encounter? Only truth to discover? Tiny bit, 64 squares on a chess board. Pain can be dealt with, lived with. It truly let's you know your alive. What ails you son? Get well. Dennis
