Cycle 8 SS: Precourse experience
As part of my preparations for the course, I've been working through some things I've been neglecting. Amongst these chiefly is achieving Knowledge and Conversation of my HGA. So....I've begun doing the Invocation of the Bornless One. Got to say while I don't think I've gone an achieved it in one go, I definitely experienced SOMETHING upon completing the invocation. I felt suddenly a great deal wiser and instead of feeling like a diver plunging into the ocean - I felt like I WAS the ocean. It was a very unusual experience. Still processing it. I've done drawing down of various deities, I've been in possession states, I've completed spiritual unions, and this was different from all of them. Big thing is I've got to keep the anticipation level low, and just experience it. That's the plan anyways - can't get trapped in that whole 'lust for results'. Other preparations are going well such as doing more meditations, breathing exercises, etc. Well that's my quick update for today. Expect more journal entries like this one as the course actually begins.
