I think it has to do with the emerging consciousness soul- a deepened experience of the individual I experience- which frees itself (through somewhat tough lessons I imagine) from defining itself using collective mindsets: family, nation, generational, epoch etc. This is what Steiner called becoming 'homeless'. The individual standing on it's VERY own, with the higher realms free to reveal themselves to him/her. A living experience of reincarnation becomes possible as this becomes 'achieved' along with other spiritual realisations, understandings....
I'm stuck- MOVING- my flat of 17 years is going to be renovated and I have to get out in 2 weeks from now. I managed to 'deal' with the real estate industry, have now packed my kitchen and books,papers, so the 'settled feeling' is returning to me. In all, I found this experience quite gruesome...
Enjoy you visit, and again, happy birthday! c.
