There have been countless attempts throughout history to decipher, represent, and/or access the spiritual world. Such efforts usually take the form of religion, philosophy, ritual, or artwork, and they are almost always fueled by our innate human drive to discover and/or create a door between the known world and that which exists beyond. As can be expected, every door that has been created by man up until now has been, by necessity, inherently flawed. The simple fact is that it is almost impossible to escape the corrupting influence of human imperfection, especially over time. But the destination is true. That which lies on the other side of the veil is real. It is pure, it is powerful, and it is eminently worth pursuing. So keep trying. Keep seeking. Every genuine attempt to expand our understanding of — and our connection with — the compassionate creative Spirit which pervades the universe is a gift to the future of the collective human soul.
