Our guide in meditation tonight had us focus on trust.  “Just repeat, I trust,” she asked of us.  So I repeated that.  I fell into a deep state of relaxation.  I felt trusting of my surroundings.  Then I began to climb stairs in my mind.  This is all happening in my mind, of course, because I am just sitting on a blanket spread out on a wood floor in a yoga studio.  But I climbed to a new level.  That level was a better world.  I looked around, then climbed a ladder.  Soon I was at another level.  The world there was beautiful.  “Welcome to our level,” a man said to me.  “This is the future, and we built a better one for ourselves than the past you came from.”  But the ladder still ascended, so I continued upward.  I stopped, looked around, and felt a peace at that next level that I had never felt in my world.  I wanted to see more.  The last level was a steep climb up a flight of stairs.  I was greeted there, also.  “We couldn’t build our future with a lateral move in your past.  We had to build it vertically.”  The problems you and I experience now were not part of that world.  There was a whole different attitude about humanity there.  I can’t describe what it was, but the important thing was that these people had learned to progress upward not in just their technology but in the simple essence of life. 3/18/2018
