"We might therefore say that the process of the ascension is one whereby a self-aware being overcomes the illusion of matter and begins to see the underlying reality that all is made from the Creator's light. Thus, nothing is truly separated from the Creator, including oneself."
"We could also say that an unascended being starts out thinking it is limited by matter and that its Spirit needs to adapt to conditions in the matter world. As you grow towards the ascension, you gradually realize your Spirit does not have to adapt to matter but can take dominion over matter. When you fully accept that Spirit is never limited by matter and has no obligation to adapt to current conditions on earth, you have qualified for your personal ascension."
