As our Being grows in the spiritual realm, we will glimpse more and more of its ongoing existence. This may include being a witness to elements of its past and future. True Knowledge that appears will move us away from the physical plane of existence and closer to our spiritual roots. We as outer consciousness, however, are not always privy to the Knowledge available to our Being. Because the outer sphere of consciousness is connected to the physical plane, there is always a Knowledge gap between a Being and its outer shell.
