In our current Diamond world, there is a huge emphasis on 'growing' and 'evolving' and 'expanding'. Therefore, when people hear about the Ten Terrains Of Consciousness, they can often assume that the "goal' in life is to shift through as many Terrains as possible in order to reach some sort of 'finish line' of 'enlightenment'. However, looking at this through the lens of the Fractal-Based Terrain (Toroid), it is seen that there is just as much beauty and good in staying where one is for one's entire life than on shifting to the next Terrain.
There are many people on this planet who have the life path of going "deep" into one Terrain. Such people tend to spend their whole life at the Terrain in which they were born, or they shift to a new Terrain early in their life and then spend the remainder of their years there, going deep. These are people who so thoroughly immerse themselves in the lessons, experiences, challenges and gifts of their Terrain that they emerge many years later as true "Masters" and often as leaders of that Terrain. These are the wise elders, the paragons, the elder statesmen, the people revered throughout the ages for their contribution to our world.
This will look different at each Terrain. For example, think of a man who has spent his entire life at the Order-Based Terrain (Square) and has gone as deeply into that Terrain as a person can go. Such a man has spent his life serving his society, perhaps has even been an architect of his society. He is extremely honorable, loyal, wise, learned, a pillar of his family and of his community. Think of people such as Abraham Lincoln or J.R.R.Tolkien. There is no need for such a man to shift to the Reflection-Based Terrain (Diamond), for his life work is here at Square. He is indeed a paragon of Square.
Think of a woman at the Connection-Based Terrain (Circle) who shifted here from Diamond in her early 20s and has spent the past 30 years going deeply into that Terrain. Such a woman has spent decades connecting to the Earth, the ancestors, the ancient wisdom teachings, the plants, the trees, the animals. She serves her community from a pure place of Love, caring for the vulnerable and the needy. She is so deeply connected to the Web Of Life that she emanates connectedness, unity, and Love. She is an elder, a wise woman, a shaman. There is no need for such a woman to shift to the Coherence-Based Terrain (Spiral), for her life work is here at Circle.
The journey of the person who goes so deeply into the heart of their Terrain that they emerge as a true Master of that Terrain is just as important, just as profound, and just as great a contribution to the Collective Field as is the journey of a person who shifts through many Terrains over the course of their lifetime. Both paths are sacred and holy and are worthy of our deep respect.
