What does it truly mean to ascend? From the darkness of ignorance into the understaning light of love, I will share my wisdom.
(I guess this is more or less an introduction as well! My name's Tristan and happy such a place exists to host you amazing amazing people! :3)
I don't know how far along all of you are, and I don't know if what I am about to say is more or less common knowledge among you. But these things I am going to say cannot be emphasized enough, and perhaps articulated from a different perspective is something beneficial in truly understanding and grasping the nature of our existence here and what it means to ascend! :3
I am not someone who can astral project or has experienced what I would label as the 'supernatural' (until perhaps recently), in fact, I sometimes feel as though I'm a being that is being prevented from accessing such things at times... HOWEVER!! I do believe I have been able to stumble through this world and obtain all sorts of knowledge and truths just while experiencing love and ignorance here on earth. :3
A few days ago I scratched on the doors of heaven with a clawing inquiring consciousness... It was something I'll never forget, and I felt as though I was dieing for a while and stuck in a limbo/purgatory before actually getting to the gates. Once there, I felt as though my purpose here on earth had been fulfilled. I felt that I had shed the ignorance I needed to while here and obtaining the knowledge of things I have. I don't know if this was was an awakening, a judgement, a test or what... But after this, all of those beliefs and knowledge have been more crystallized with me now.
Over the last month or so I had discovered the concept of a lightworker and a starseed, and after learning and internalize the sorts of understandings I have come to know, I wanted to be those things more than anything! The one single thought and idea that brought me back to my back to my reality here and anchored me down after reaching heaven and feeling as though I could go there if I wanted, was that idea of helping others out of their ignorance and spreading the love and happiness that comes as a result of that. And so here I am! :3
I've tried to reach others that are more lost, and to help them from their ignorance... But it's something insanely hard and frustrating to try and help an immature soul as I'm sure you're all aware! x3 And so, I thought I'd come to tell all of you truth seekers what I know just in case you've never heard it put in such a way. :3 Again, sorry if this is super common knowledge for you guys. >.< But it's my opinion and view on it, so maybe a different perspective is always something helpful!
Okay... So!!! x3
For me, what it means to ascend, is to understand and truly feel a couple of key concepts about the nature of ignorance and love. Through understanding and feeling these ideologies to be correct you are able to form a sort of spiritual stair case in which you will be able to climb and essentially... *dun dun dun* Ascend!!! x3
I have heard it mentioned before on this site, 'an open heart, and an open mind', and these are the tools which a soul must utilize in order to craft such a spiritual stair case! :3 But what exactly does an open heart and mind mean?! Well... An open heart is something that should naturally follow from an open mind and seems to be dependent directly ON an open mind. But I do indeed view them to completely separate entities which contain completely separate sets of ignorance (kind of mental ignorance, and a kind of emotional ignorance), which I will now describe how to defeat!
To have an open mind is to ALWAYS be questioning and not approach any given matter or situation with a predisposed bias or perception of how something SHOULD or SHOULDN'T be. You should always exercise logic and reason without outside influence in this way! :3 It is also healthy and important to hold at least some element of doubt in all that you do and all that you believe in order to obtain the ultimate truth behind something. No absolute truths, nothing is set in mental stone... Your mind must be something always free flowing and changing so that it can adapt and incorporate more logical and reasonable views as new evidence arises. We are but incomplete entities stumbling around in the darkness trying to obtain truth and understanding. As we obtain more knowledge of things it can grow our light to greater distances to see more, and we must accept and internalize what we find there even if it goes against what we once knew. In doing this our lights of understanding can only grow further and lead us to more truth and understanding of what it means to exist. ;3
Okay! So now for an open heart too also as well that other thing!
No open mind should be without an open heart! And trying to ascend without one is like climbing with stairs constantly missing, in which you will trip and get hurt on, or simply emotional ignorant holes for you to get your feet stuck in and not progress... >.<
To have an open heart is to always be exercising a deep sense of compassion and empathy towards ALL other beings around you. It is to view all others as equals and a close intimate part of you, and to put those entities before yourself whenever possible. :3 The sources' will is to have us all connected and whole once more, and I believe love is is that bonding agent that is trying to obtain this goal pull us all back together again. NO one is 'evil' or 'bad', they are simply more lost in their ignorance than you and trying to find their way back towards the light. EVERYONE deserves forgiveness once understanding of their mistakes and miss-doings are realized, because we have ALL been there and made mistakes out of ignorance, aka, an emotional or mental non-understanding. Some of these mistakes from ignorance are greater than others, but they are all made for the same reasons... Ignorance.
It is through living for others where true fulfillment lies, as for living for oneself and being ego-egotistical or selfish isolates you from the source and from the warmth of love it provides. It's something cold and dark... >.<
Love yourself! You are part of the source and you have made your way far out of ignorance if you are someone here on this website and reading this now. :3 Love everyone else and all other beings! They are a close intimate part of you! Many of them are lost though... >.> So please continue helping even those most lost ignorant souls as best you can! >^.^< They are the ones who need your light and warmth most of all! Love and understanding envelopes ignorance and breaks it down, we will win this fight eventually. ;3
Okay! I has a done! I really hope any of these words help any of you at all! >^.^< If anyone ever wants to talk for whatever reason, send me a message! >^.^< Especially if you're ever feeling sad or depressed! Please come find me so I can try and cheer you up! Our lives here and our existence are entirely based on our perspective is something important to keep in mind. True knowledge and understanding is something that is ONLY happiness, joy, and love. :3 And so... Your ultimate perspective should always incorporate those things, and everything in life should be able to be viewed in a positive light. ;3
On a super double extra bonus side note! Here's an awesome My little pony, friendship is magic AMV ;3 (I just love this show and its fan made message: "I'm going to love and tolerate the shit out of you" x3 The 'brony' followers of it are always individuals who tend to be a bit more open minded and enlightened bunch because of the social barriers you have to overcome in order to enjoy the show. ;3 )
