A Well Autobiography in Five Short Chapters
by Will Joel Friedman, Ph.D.
greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it,
but that it is too low and we reach it.
is not actualities, but rather the potentialities, of human nature that somehow
provide us with a standard for a sound and healthy personality.
Our coming out of sleep into a conscious awareness in this moment opens up a juicy experience of Presence and the ability to witness all of life with non-reactive equanimity. This expands into a full embodiment of who one truly is and inhabiting the qualities, sentiments and virtues of Divinity for soul sustenance throughout infinite timelessness in the Absolute.
This autobiography is one symbolic set of developmental stages of a soul-filled life. It portrays five stages of emotional, cognitive, behavioral and relational maturation on an ever more conscious path of psychological and spiritual maturation. This autobiography depicts each incremental advance as accessible for anyone who reaches for a successful life centered upon the Divine, love, choice and the good. One's inner observing is developing the soul's voice of discovery, inner knowing is one's intuitive link to the Divine speaking within, and inner doing is one's natural blossoming in actions as one lives Truth inhabiting True Nature.
By acting out of love for the Beloved in every instance, one is fecundated with the sacred, the seeds of souls germinate, imprint and integrate divine qualities, and ultimately one's very substance is transformed, a process of transubstantiation. Less and less thought yields more and more life. It's a gift to appreciate the distance one comes and value of which one really is. The view improves each step up from the valley to the mountain's awe-inspiring pinnacle.
