I’m interested to know what your views are regarding this physical plane/ the material universe.
For quite a few years I subscribed to the Neoplatonist (I think that’s the correct term – I may be mistaken) view, believing that this material plane, being the densest in vibration, is therefore the most ‘difficult’ plane to exist on. I’ve always believed that we should make the most of the more mundane aspects of earthly life, embrace and actively seek out out carnal gratification, but that the most blissful states could only be accessed through attaining altered states of consciousness and accessing higher realms of existence.
In a way I still sort of believe this, but not entirely sure anymore. One thing that really got me thinking was some info that Azazel communicated to E.A. It was something regarding how, many people want to escape into spiritual realms, yet spirits are desperate to come into our world, this physical plane. I don’t remember exactly what he said, but that was the gist of it (actually I’m not even sure if it was Azazel- but I think it was in BoA?). Anyway, I’d be really interested to hear your thoughts on this.
