RITE OF PASSAGE #4
The Rite of Renunciation
Our collective initiation of the transfiguration, established through the previous Rite of Passage, continues with ever increasing vigor as we progress into the deeper phases of personality dissolve.
Up until this moment in time, our evolutionary development has been centered upon the pain of karma. This constant circling upon the karmic wheel finally comes to an end when we reach the point of truly realizing the self as Divine. It is during the experience of this revelation that we leave behind all selfishness, suffering and sorrow and enter into a state of natural great peace.
The Rite of Renunciation assists us to relinquish all remaining hold to the personal identity. As we offer ourselves as hollowed instruments, free of personality entrapment, we are finally liberated from the unending cycle of death and rebirth and the illusion of suffering.
We are now in an initiatory turning point before stepping through the eye of the needle to realize our immutable Greatness.
This Rite is perhaps one of the most challenging of all due to the required level of profound surrender in absolute humility.
