A full-on kundalini awakening is the hardest thing we will have to endure in life because of the penetration of the veil of consciousness and the greatly enhanced senses, psi, portent, correspondences and connections.
Our mind can truly become global and transcend time and space, as well as experiencing eternal time. The rational faculties must be pretty well developed, but not bullish and repressive in order to embrace the extremes of our switched on nature and not fight against our expansion with egoic parochialism.
One thing we realize on awakening is that the depths of ourselves goes so far beyond our conditioned identity that we experience ourselves as unfathomable… with no end.
The more we look, the further we go… words only slowly eek into these vaulted realms on their search for meaning.
And those who have not experienced an intense awakening are virgins, who in their wildest dreams could not begin to imagine the epic, cosmic nature of the journey and the remarkable HUman qualities it takes to survive kundalini awakening.
Sustaining the advances after an awakening takes even more skill… we live with the vague memory of a shooting star blasting into our retinas.
