I can hardly believe it’s been forty years since my first visitation by the Spirit. I’ve gone through many spiritual adventures since then, and it’s been my pleasure and privilege to craft the numenal experiences into written artifacts, some with images appended. A few of them are in my book, Legends of the Metasphere, and lots more are on my website, RamaSpirit.com. Now I’d like to share my ongoing thoughts and experiences with anyone here who finds them congenial.
For my first offering, I’ll note that spiritual experience can be exalting and humbling all at the same time. Some people never get over the exaltation, and confuse the Supernal Godself with their lowly ego. This is what happened to me after some mind-expanding events when I was young, which I’m writing about in my Autobiodyssey.
Another hazard comes with experiences of divine Oneness and unconditional love. It’s easy to project this onto the world around us and imagine a mystical communion that isn’t there. It took me a long time to learn that the real challenge is separation: to fully grasp the apartness of myself and the stark, boggling otherness of everyone else. Nothing less than this is the prerequisite for genuine love and union.
