If you look at different myths and religions around the world you’ll see that they all have a kind of ultimate goal, the highest achievable state of consciousness using that system.
I can’t remember where I got it from originally, except that I was studying some obscure pre-christian myth about resurrection. They talked about the highest states an individual soul could attain, states of pure bliss and super-consciousness. Then there was something above and beyond all of those that they simply referred to as “the Day of Be with Us” or “the Day of Come Be with Us”.
Back then it didn’t really sound like much of an achievement based on what they were calling it, but back then I didn’t know the difference between resurrection and ascension. Now that I do, it makes perfect sense.
