Even with all the books pointing me in the right direction, I was frustrated at not finding the joy I had as a kid...enough to actually start feeling depressed about it.
Almost finishing the last of what I had to read on my kindle I felt drawn to find another. Didn't know what I was looking for until I saw the cover of 'Ascension' by MSI. I felt elated for some reason but didn't know why. I just knew I had to have it.
My first read of Ascension was magical for me. It was like a tuning fork was ringing in every cell of my body. After finishing the first read I felt so good I read it again. I ended up reading it 4 times (based on the premise that we only retain about 25% with one read), but also because each time I read it I felt closer to Source/God, or a little lighter anyway.
I was skeptical at first because the book said that it had to be taught by a qualified teacher. I went online to research more about Ascension on their web site. I realized that this was the real deal and I had to learn it! I even tried to figure it out not having an instructor, by reading 'First Thunder' as well. lol
I succumbed to despair mostly because I'm a real introvert and there were no workshops anywhere near me. Then I had a vivid dream that I was on a roof top of a building in a big city. A man (who I realized later to be Maharishi Sadasiva Isham) took me by my shoulder and made me jump off the sky scraper we were on. I thought...'why is he doing this...we're gonna die'. Then I woke up (in the dream) and flew with him. Best dream ever!
I felt like it was a sign to (just jump)...try and sponsor a workshop in my area so I could learn 'The Art of Ascension'. I was very nervous about attempting it on my own because I never sponsored anything in my life, but something urged me on. I was truly surprised how cheap it was considering what it was offering me. I've bought guitars for much more. That was yet another sign to me that the Isahya's were the real deal...'the salt of the earth'.
My wife, myself and a very dear friend took the first sphere workshop together. It was exactly what I was looking for. That final thing I needed. I am reminded of the quote "when the student is ready the teacher appears". Just the peace emanating off of the Ishaya teachers was amazing! I was like a music fan who just met Elvis.
Right now at this writing it has been just over 4 weeks since, and I am ten times lighter and much more peaceful. Can't wait to learn the 2nd Sphere. Very subtle changes in the way I look at life, friends, loved ones, myself. I could go on and on, but suffice to say I will do 'whatever it takes' until Enlightenment is Realized...and I've found a simple and easy way to help me do that.
Love and Gratitude !!!
