Must Spiritual Growth And Spiritual Awakening Breakthroughs Be Preceded By Craziness And Pain?

In this episode of “Friday Q&As,” I’m answering the following question that was submitted by Sydney about spiritual growth, spiritual awakening, and spiritual awakening symptoms:

“From what you have related, it appears that before any big breakthrough, something ‘crazy’ must happen i.e. from P1 to P2 and P2 to P3 – at least in your story. Doesn’t this suggest a repetitive cycle ad infinitum?”

Sydney is referring to what happened to me in my journey through the cloud cover …

In my story, where the BIG spiritual awakening Breakthroughs in my story came after a lot of craziness and pain, as it appeared when I was in the middle of it.

The key word in her question is “must.”

Must craziness and pain be experienced?

No.

Does The Journey tend to be perceived that way when you’re in the middle of it?

Yes.

For specific reasons.

Is it a bad thing?

No.

Do the people who take The Journey through the cloud cover, including me, wish it hadn’t happened when they come out the other end of the Experience, are playing in The Sunshine, and Experiencing Ultimate Freedom in their stories?

No.

That’s not how I feel about it.

And that’s not how anyone else I know of who took The Journey, sees it.
