“We cannot become an awakened Self without the desire to be the Self. We cannot become aware and powerful without going through all the powerlessness. To some extent powerlessness is necessary to show us what power is, because we learn through comparison in duality. It is naive to assume that when you welcome the universal flow you will suddenly leave behind all your troubles and ‘everything will be ok’…Truly free universal energy feels great, but when it first enters us, it of course will hit all the blocks we have, smashing them open. Don’t you think that might be uncomfortable?
Right, it usually is an uncomfortable process, because you have to re-evaluate your views on reality, and your ideas and beliefs. But do not despair, it is not an agony! Every time you feel the insecurity of your fear, you also gain more tolerance to it, and when you process the pain, you gain knowledge and experience, which end in wisdom and power. And so with each block the clearing becomes easier, even if the blocks themselves are painful. This is the reward for doing processing work! The blocks are not necessarily any less traumatic or painful, but they do not suck us in, do not scare us as much any longer, and do not define our reality, hence they are just uncomfortable. The wisdom is well worth it.”

Compiler’s Note: In late September I mentioned that I felt Mission Alpha was a tremendous book even though I was only a third of the way through it. Now that I’ve completed it, I have to say that in the 20+ years I’ve been reading books in the spiritual growth and metaphysical categories, Mission Alpha is clearly one of the most insightful books I’ve ever encountered. Trust me on this, if you are an open-minded, serious student of metaphysics, this truly is a “must read” book.
