Journey of Ascension

Ascension has been a huge learning process for me to deepen my trust that everything is happening exactly as it should.
— Jeremy Richardson, Ascension creator

On the last day of Burning Man, my good friend Jared happened to be walking by Ascension as I was there and he recorded himself asking some really great questions that cover topics like trust, manifestation, following your heart, flow, and life purpose. Give it a watch below (it's 15 minutes).

 

It all starts with self love

Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near together: For the pillars of the temple stand apart, And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
— Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet"

For many, the concept of being “in love” is defined by default society. Romantic plots in pop culture so often have characters falling in love uncontrollably to finally find “happiness”. Society teaches us that the responsibility of our happiness lies on the shoulders of others. We spend so much time looking for happiness - love - everywhere but the one place we’ll find it: within ourselves.

An incredibly relevant fortune I received from a long lost friend I ran into on the last day of Burning Man 2015.

Ascension conveys a different definition of love: when separate, whole individuals form a partnership that reinforces their individuality while creating a unit where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. The partnership reinforces this while bringing them both to a higher level, together.

Through this symbolism, Ascension creates a space that inspires people to reflect on self love, loving others, and love as it relates to their world at large.
