|2.) Without renunciation—
a.) Never achieve freedom of the spirit;
b.) In turn, no resurrection of the spirit;
c.) So no spiritual awakening and
continuously expanding of inner
consciousness, and no merging with
Higher Consciousness of Lord;
d.) Therefore cannot approach and
contact Higher Worlds.

1.) Renunciation or detachment:‡
a.) Is a basic requirement of
spirituality—to detach and release
oneself from captivity (or bondage) to
form (including old, outworn and
temporary things, even Earth) !
b.) Is actually and literally
containment** of both pairs (or
polar) opposites: spirit and matter !
c.) Is ""stepping stone"" to approach
and connect with all Higher Worlds.

‡ Is not just physically, but also emotionally, mentally, even spiritually.
|** Because after achieved synthesis (aka
all containment)—spirit and matter merge.
