Lesson 9 - The Dream of Life
If you awaken from this illusion, and you understand that black implies white, self implies other, life implies death, or should say death implies life.
You can feel yourself not as a stranger in the world, not as something here on probation, not a fluke. But you can begin to feel your own existence as absolutely fundamental.
I’m not trying to sell you on this idea as far as converting you to it. I want you to think of its possibilities. I’m not trying to prove it, but putting it forward a something to think about.
Let’s go back to the beginning and give you the control you think you want to show you that we don’t think things through all the way.
So then, lets suppose that you were able every night to dream any dream you wanted to dream, 100% control. And you could have the power to dream within 1 night, 75 years, a whole life, or any length of time you wanted to have.
Naturally, as you begin on this adventure of dreaming, you would fulfill all of your wishes. You’d have every kind of pleasure you could perceive. And after several nights of 75 years at a time of total please each, you’d say well that was pretty great.
But now let’s have a surprise, let’s have a dream which isn’t under control. Where something is going to happen to me and I don’t know what it’s going to be.
And you’d dig that, and come out of that and say "wow, that was a close shave wasn’t it." Then you’d make further and further out gambles of what you’d dream.
And finally, you’d dream where you are right now. You’d choose to dream the dream of living the life you are actually living today.
That would be one of the choices you’d have of playing that you weren’t (god). Because the whole nature of the spirit or godhead according to this idea, is to play that they are not.
So in this idea then that everybody is the ultimate reality, not (god) in a politically kingly sense. But (god) in the sense of being the self, the deep down whatever there is.
And you’re all that, only you are pretending you are not.
If any of these resonate with you and your journey:
