WICKHAM CP, FL—Solitude is best for inner spiritual work: Meditation, inquiry, Shadow work. Social settings, on the other hand, are excellent for external spiritual work… in applying your spiritual practice to the real world.
With Michelle (working to transcend an established Radiant level), I recently advised her—since she was back in the States visiting friends and family—to remove herself from the equation when around others.
In Radiance, you identify with the portal which pure Light/Love shines through. The portal is your vehicle (using the terminology from my prior post). By “removing yourself from the equation” you drop your self-centeredness (the portal) and are left with nothing but Love/Light shining outward.
So at the Radiant level, to remove yourself from the equation is to drop all attachment to your own self-interests.
This practice of “removing yourself” reveals quite starkly how often your conditioned self-interests arise.
To remove yourself from the equation needn’t be restricted to the Radiant level though. It can be applied to any of the levels. It is simply a method for “trying out” the next spiritual step up from where you currently reside. Sort of like test-driving an upgraded spiritual state:
- Mortal: In social situations, act as a Soul by not taking all this temporary drama so seriously.
- Soul: In social situations, act as a portal through which Love and Light shines.
- Radiance: Remove the portal and be what is left—a selfless being of Love and Light.
- Emptiness: Let go of even the Light. To use a spiritual cliche: Just be.
While doing these social (outer) practices, watch for the conditioned reactions that arise from the lower levels and use them as indicators to help uncover areas that need more work during your inner spiritual practices (meditation, inquiry, Shadow work).
By alternating between the outer practices (which reveal problem areas), and the inner cleansing practices (which heal/transcend them), your evolution will progress from the typical hit-or-miss methods common today, to direct, rapid, and focused spiritual growth.
