EXCEPTIONAL FACILITY OF CONSCIOUSNESS
An unusual level of spiritual awakening can be achieved by serious seekers, who then become the seeds of a general evolutionary step
Evolutionary development has two characteristic qualities. The normal process of development is 'a little bit at a time' with periods of clarity and periods of confusion creating a general unfolding of further understanding. Yet rarely - perhaps once or twice in a decade - we may go through sudden dimensional shifts when a veil is torn from our eyes and we move up the spiritual mountain path in leaps and bounds. Life is never the same after one, and we never lose the expanded awareness. The more profound versions of this are called by Sufis 'maqam shifts'.

Our unique qualities distinguish us from the norm and add to the richness of society
This bizarre image speaks to the importance in life for us to hold firm to the distinctiveness of who and what we are unconditionally – even if that makes us extraordinarily unusual.
By cherishing our own particularities, we sharpen our acuity of perception towards our social group, and we then see more clearly. We see not only the opportunities that come from differentiation, but also the underlying affinities beneath the differences.
These quirks of character are the treasures of human life – the fruits of previous choices and realisations – that have practical value.
They indicate, incontrovertibly, the exact contours of our specific idealised standpoint. Not only that, the process by which we reach such a specific life-statement brings out an ability to assess situations and respond with originality.
What use are we to humanity if we cannot add something original and idealistic? The potentiality of the world, and of our species, will only ever be acted out through individuals.
Many people invest themselves within trite attitudes, and become obsessed with impoverished or ridiculous ideas and worthless occupations. They blame the harshness of life self-pityingly, instead of forging ahead meaningfully.
We must trust that our destiny will reveal itself to us if only we would let it. Surely we can be intuitively aware that our fate is not to suffer a pointless, uninspiring path of failure and regret?
