Excerpt About Autonomy
Creating Contact with Our Internal and External ExperienceAutonomy and personalness go together. This indicates the role of the Personal Essence – the aspect of the Pearl – in the functioning of the Diamond Guidance. Personal involvement, autonomy, and contact and are all qualities of the Personal Essence. In other words, the effect of the Pearly Diamond of the Diamond Guidance is to create contact with, a personal involvement with, our internal and external experience. And that translates into personal autonomy in inquiry. The Diamond Guidance guides the soul and its process of maturation and individuation. This process is the same as the movement towards the soul’s realization of the Personal Essence, and the Diamond Guidance will arise naturally to assist in this development.
