What is Real, What is Illusory?

The within is Real. The outer is the dream, even though the mind doesn’t see it like that. Are you game to at least consider this?

Time is not what we take it to be. There is no separation, in spite of outer appearances. We are all well & truly one — aspects or appearances of the One. To the extent we rely on the mind to sort out reality is the extent to which we delude ourselves.

There’s no harm in the delusion — it’s more like a playground.

Dimash Kudaibergen is my totally favorite singer, yet Dimash (& everything/everyone else) is an element of “me” & I am an element of Dimash. We’re all as cells in the “Body” of Source/God; different, unique, yet still one, still the One.

The Golden Rule is legit wisdom: Do unto others as you’d have them do unto you is more true than any mind comprehends.

We’re programmed, friends, whether we realize it or not. The exit door from The Matrix is the entrance door to Heart, to our inner Beingness. We are not at all what we take ourselves to be, yet we must let go of so much — or rather, of reliance on so much — to experience that.

Perhaps the biggest step in awakening is to re-member our dismembered Self. As you may have guessed (or already Know), it is not the mind doing the remembering; it is Heart. It’s that which we Knew all along, we just didn’t access it while the mind was in charge. The mind doesn’t want to go there, fearing loss of control.

Perhaps the biggest hurdle to this great re-membering is us, remaining mind-centric. That horse don’t run, not in the realms of Reality. Some call those the spiritual realms; not quite, but close. It’s time to set the mind aside for some greater adventures.

We are Source-in-form, Source/God playing a role. At our core, we are the divine. Emptiness is the way into That, as in the camel passing through the eye of the needle.(1) It must be unencumbered, unburdened to fit through.

Nothing is what we take it to be.

The reality we continually experience is what we, ourselves, are manifesting. Our thoughts are far more powerful than we yet realize/remember. Thought actually creates. In the realm of 3D, the frequency generated by a thought magnetizes all with a frequency equal to it.

It’s rather humorous, but we’re each actually creating/manifesting our own personal experience of reality. This gives a strong clue about the importance of every thought. It also highlights the beauty of silence — of emptiness.

This journal could be a Part 2 to this earlier one: Trust the (Divine) Plan. It may seem that they have much to offer, & they do — but every treasure, every current secret, all Joy, Abundance, & every DeLight is within You. Outer things can only point the way into That.

Though quite scary, at first, this inward journey cuts away all burdens, all fears, & all the idiocy that was programmed into our minds along the way. Though it makes no sense to the mind, so what? Oh — & remember to have fun along the way. Joy & lightness of Being are natural, we just don’t find them in their greatest depth & intensity within the mind’s realm.

Let go & let God, as they say.

(1) “The ‘Eye of the Needle’ or ‘Needle’s Eye’ was a narrow gateway into Jerusalem. Since camels were heavily loaded with possessions, they would need to be un-loaded in order to pass through. The analogy is that a rich man would have to similarly unload his material possessions in order to enter heaven.”
