Ascension is a bit of a misdeamer. I never ever thought it was relevant, associated it with the PTB, trying to misdirect people from the thing that matters most, family, to self, once again.
I was shown it meditation, a rapid shift, and a change. It was in the twinkling of an eye, and so its possible.
If your body is needed it won't matter if you can ascend or not, that's the thing. It doesnt matter if you're loving but still not advanced enough when the whole system progresses either, you havn't lost out and you won't need another body.
Each moment is forever. Infinite clips in an infinite roll of film, with this life, making it real, and holding the clip in. However, all moments are eternal, and can be revisited like a dusty old dvd sitting on the shelf. Access to your form is always there. Also that is a reason why those who talk of reformatting and memory wipes over and over don't even begin to understand. At this moment you are being born, taking your first steps, have already crossed over, have one day progressed, are your Infinite Self, for there is no time, its all at once. All that is, was, and will be, is happening now, all at once.
