Oh, this was a good talk, and it tacks onto last night’s talk on Vertigo. Now we want to know how to pass through it, how to restore our earth quaking fragmented world to balance. All the spiritual teachings, including that of Jesus, say you have to be reborn, or you have to die before you die. What does that mean? In orthodox thinking it gets translated into being born into a Church, but that is a social organization and really has nothing to do with your actual life and death. This is a horizontal movement of your ego from being this to being that.
But we are talking about a vertical realignment with Life itself here. How do we do that? We do it by accepting, by inviting, by staying calm, by not moving, when our world falls apart and the terror of vertigo threatens us, the terror of falling into the abyss of non-existence. Not Moving, not doing, not choosing, just holding you fire..holding your choice, holding your need to be angry and destroy the threat coming at you, being able to stay awake and aware when you have no alternatives…..that is the portal through Vertigo.
When you take the axil of your attachments out of the wheel of your life, instead of the wheel falling over and your wagon self destructing without your beliefs and religions and political orientations, that empty axil hole becomes a portal for Grace, creative power, insight, authenticity…why not? You have nothing to lose now that all. your supports systems have been taken away. Now you are free!
