Relatively easy, yes, bar accidents that fudged things up early on. I have all I need, any problems are about my attitude and being able to stay high and made decisions with discernment.
It’s possible to de-ascend, even as a volunteer - hazard of the territory - but you can get back up again.
For example, being human is still never easy and can depress you when you no longer understand why people do thing things they do, so you ‘ostrich’ and go back to sleep. Or, I tend to attract broken people into relationships and give myself a headache trying to heal them, which sometimes has been a landslide success and sometimes just dragged me down.
For those interested in this idea, I recently came across a chaneller called Dolores Canon that has some explanations vis a vis her ‘3 waves of volunteers’ that for the way I see things reasonably well, and I relate to her ‘2nd wave’ concept.
