|Ascension and planetary ascension:
uniting the spirit to the flesh, and the heavens to the earth
The following excerpt is from ROOTS AND WINGS: adventures of a spirit on earth, by Jack Haas, "The Kerouac of the new millennium." (FW)
| Ascension is a reality. It can occur when the individual has become finished, complete, and whole. In order to accomplish this, one must desire, intend, and will to become whole, and one must lose every concept of what type of journey might be required to get there, for everyone's path will be different. The flesh is transfigured as consciousness descends into and mates with feeling. Having said that, the work of ascension is the work of the spirit on earth. That means that one works toward ascension in a roundabout way- by healing themselves, and others, and the earth; one does not forsake this life, for this life is where the work is. Ascension will occur once one's earthly duties are complete and therefore it is a by-product of one's earthly existence. After all, what one finds in 'heaven', so to speak, is not much different from what is on earth. For what a person seeks to escape here will only have to be dealt with there, and so it is best to utilize this life, this forum, as the plane upon which one becomes whole. ...
I believe that I have been close to ascending, like old Solomon, on two separate occasions- back when I was absolutely tired and full of contempt for this earthly drama, and wanted then, like I imagined no man had ever wanted before, to leave this plane for less limiting pastures, though my ascension did not come about, for a number of reasons.
At one point, when I was prepared and willing to go, Christ came to me in a dream and told me that I should stay, for reasons I do not feel compelled here to relate.
At another time, when I thought I had waited long enough, and was ready and willing again to mix the two elements of flesh and spirit and so to become the light which can rise up into the nether realm without dying, a voice came to me and said “All flesh is one flesh.” And suddenly I understood the reality of what we are doing here, and that in each individual's efforts towards wholeness is the will of the entire earth and the hosts of heaven, seeking to merge all of our separated halves into a new and living whole, and raise the married creation to a freer height. Planetary ascension. ...
