The world is going to break your heart.
To pieces. Or maybe it will feel more like having your heart slowly wrung out, like a wet rag, until the last possible drop is squeezed out. Whether it’s the shattering impact of sudden trauma or a long, grinding away, like being slowly but surely overtaken by a glacier — heartbreak happens.
And not just once. Maybe we could deal with that…your heart would shatter into a million pieces or self-immolate, and then you’d be done with it. “Well, that was appalling, but at least it’s done with.” But no. Like some cursed Promethean organ, it regenerates and soon enough you find yourself back in the ring for another ten rounds.
Spirituality seems to offer a few different perspectives. One is to become so effing spiritual that you kind of don’t care anymore. Do you become impervious? Indifferent? So Meta that the Micro no longer reaches you? Above suffering. Beyond suffering. God, that sounds so cool!
Another viewpoint might be that suffering and heartbreak are lower dimensional paradigms and what you need to do is Ascend. Maybe this ascension takes the form of finally not having to incarnate at all. This would be the get-the-fuq-out model. Or perhaps you can stay, but somehow vibrate into another reality, 5th dimension (or higher…I think Fifth Dimension is probably so turn of the century at this point).
