Can we take anything into higher levels or can we merely witness them?
What do we mean by higher levels? If we mean those that are progressively finer and faster in quality, this implies a process of giving up ones non-astral identity as we move to ever-faster levels of perception.
Meditation on the light progresses with the witnessing on faster and faster levels of light in the creation the more we move away from the mind and the physical.
We thus loose these identities along the way in order to witness what lies in formlessness.
But then are not higher levels inexplicably linked to lower levels, perhaps nothing actually moves between them (hence the illusion of a spiritual journey). A human form carries all the levels within it and is a microcosmic representation of the macrocosm reflecting all ‘levels’.
Enlightenment (that which is left when nothing is left) always is, so is the irony of the spiritual path, what is there left to get enlightened at this point when all of our identities have been transcended?
