Wow it’s like you’re verbalizing thoughts I’m having lately. We are psychic beings with a capacity for shared spiritual consciousness, but that upper realm is so full of control, predation, hated & threats that we recoil often into solitary, damaged states, if not wishing for their deaths. The spiritual practice now might be to allow shared psychic space training oneself not to use it to judge, control, manipulate, coerce, shame or even guide. But just to be present with, while learning to be responsive to spiritual prompts toward the betterment of others. Sartre usefully says: “We judge ourselves with the means other people have and have given us for judging ourselves.” This is psychic attack, essentially- the judger is telling others they’re not developing and growing in their own stories but held to being characters in one’s own. Others have to be “figured out,” operating in a lower realm of predicted motive and following scripts. I’d like to learn to allow others to be, a state of pure being, to grow as they will, and be present in the mysterious world.
