At the boundary between life and living there is an extraordinary quest to experience transcendence. This side of that flight of soul, there is a deep growing need to feel more, to push past the daily boundaries we are enmeshed within. It is not that our brains seek novelty, it is that something beating, vibrating within our chests knows we have so much more we can feel.
The heart of the explorer expands ever so far knowing there is something beyond what we have known. But somehow we cannot go there, days move past us quickly, and we are no nearer that place of inside-out envelopment. At intervals we raise our hearts above the daily clutter and wonder if we will ever go there, ever step into the unknown, seeking the unexperienced place on our map, titled “unexplored territory” written large across it.
We try so many diversions, so many promising paths hoping they will lead us there. Yet after repeated failures we realize they were diversions, pushing more days behind us on the calendar. And no nearer our goal – transcendence.
We cannot do it alone, we come to realize, we cannot go there unaccompanied. It is not because we are incomplete, but that the transcendence we seek comes from the merging of complete beings acting in beautiful harmony. It is the chain reaction of souls in close proximity to each other, each radiating energy to the other, each feeling increased power to give and to simultaneously receive.
It is this contained explosive harmony that drives our souls to places we could never reach alone. It is the exquisite vibration at ever higher frequencies that breaks the bonds that tie us to life, that push us far past ordinary, where transcendence cannot be denied.
Transcendence is a result, not action. And it is here, enmeshed in the radiating net of transcendence that the experience of life begins.
Then our remaining quest is to do it again tomorrow.
