“The midnight being is you, there: you, before you came into this body, here, but wiped of all knowledge of what you were before. All you have as a being to live by are tiny, tiny little bits of direct knowledge that don’t offer you information. They offer you beautifully blind, original centredness which plays itself out in your humanness.”
While we’re here in this world, there’s still the chance to remember and become what we were born for. John spells out the immense opportunity we have in this non-soul environment for our souls to evolve.
