Dealing with Madness and Insanity on the Spiritual Path
In the rather small circles of fellow Lightworkers I’ve been closely associated with, we often, over the years, discussed the bent of those who pursue Ascension Process toward mental instability. Additionally, my Guidance has supplied a good deal of information on this subject over the years. What follows are just a few excerpts:
These people very frequently fall prey to what the world at large defines as mental imbalance or disturbance. It seems that the extreme sensitivity required to espouse the Path of Ascension and become a Lightworker makes this predilection almost universal among them in one fashion or another. To pursue this Path at all requires that one take a stance that is “irrational” in regard to most prevalent paradigms, and Lightworkers are, to a man/woman, Mad as the Proverbial Hatter in “Alice in Wonderland”. The only trick to succeeding in this Quest toward the Light, is an ability which has also been bred into these incarnational vehicles (human forms). It is simply to discover their balance, to walk the Razor’s Edge of Madness without succumbing totally to the strong lure of absolute immersion in this “aberration”.
(Excerpted and Updated Post from my original Blog—Written in October 2013)
The original version of this post was published just about a year after I moved back to Florida from North Carolina. I think I was hoping that, having been here for a year (at that time), I would feel more settled. Instead, I was morose and depressed much of the time. When we moved, I believed that the change would jump-start my stagnant feeling life. Lots of things did change, but much still remained remained uncatalysed—was just the same old rut. I was seeking a direction, looking for a renewal of purpose to life, and every time I thought I’d figured it out, I seemed to be blocked.
Having voluntarily released the illusion of Free Willfairly early on my Spiritual Path, I was accustomed to having my wings clipped when I go on flights of fancy that don’t suit the purposes of the Higher Power that guides me. At that point though, I felt completely grounded. No matter which way I tried to go, I found myself right back where I started. I could do the day-to-day stuff, work around home, and basically fulfill all the obligations that life entails. Intermittently, I would work on my blog, the purpose of which continued to remain an enigma to me.
