My dream this morning helped me see something else about the five phases outlined by Tozan & Underhill. During phase three, we are not only identified as the absolute – Big Mind, beyond and including all polarities – but also typically with the Master, in the Big Mind process terminology. We are the Master of our life, in every respect.
During phase four – the fall from grace – we loose connection not only with the absolute, but also with the Master. We are completely at the mercy of the circumstances of our life. Completely not in charge, not even in a conventional sense of the word.
At phase five, we again have access to the Master, although now more fluidly – responsive to the situation.
