Michael discusses how it is that we can carry a practice that allows for us to “get there” in terms of waking up. Among the most necessary approaches to this process is to deconstruct the reality we live in from a personal perspective, at least. This is most easily done by exploring the 5 senses (sight, taste, touch, hearing, and feeling) followed by the 6th sense (Asian teaching points to thought on this sense). The 7th sense involves our sense of time (past and future), the 8th sense involves what we might call the Seer, or the Witness. Even this sense is followed, and held openly by another, 9th sense, although even calling this a “sense,” misses the mark. Still, the Path is revealed as this approach unfolds.
Michael covers much of this and goes into greater detail on this topic in his book, Awake In This Life.
