Life is a process of becoming, a combination of states we have to go through. Where people fail is that they wish to elect a state and remain in it. This is a kind of death.
and so the dance continues..No state can hold any of us forever. We can have the most profound mystical experience of our lives, achieve satori for one brief instance and yet eventually we find ourselves somewhere, if not back where we started (backwards never seems to work, one of my interpretations of “You can’t go home again”. You can rise and rise towards a higher state of being ,tho sometimes it seems we slide backwards, we never return to that state from which we started –G A Rosenberg
