It is not my intent to scare you, but let me ask you a question. Have you ever taken a real close look at the world environment you awaken to each day? It is the environment into which we were born. It is world which we have blindly accepted and adapted to ever since.
Anything and everything you observe and experience in the world around you is totally subjective, ie. within you. It is a fraudulent unreal illusion. It is finite, limited, negative, powerless and without substance, law or principle. It has no real identity and is totally illusory. It is material, temporal and the embodiment of ignorance. The only place it exists is in your consciousness…not ”out there” somewhere.
It warrants no more attention than the Tooth Fairy, images on a movie screen or any other fantasy. Through our ignorance and false teaching we have built our own imaginary kingdom and filled it with make-believe stuff.
I know this is hard to accept because it is counter to everything we have been taught. But it is in perfect conformity to scientific rules and principles (“The knowledge or discovery of the operation of laws, principles and facts subject to proof…not subject to speculation, conjecture or any assumption without proof.”) We can believe Aldus Huxley when he said “Facts do not cease to exist because they are ignored.”
Like it or not, this is a portrait of our human, earthly “life.” Like begets like and, because of its negative, unreal nature, it is incapable of producing anything unlike itself. With ignorance as its premise we can expect no effects other than chaos, confusion, conflict and corruption. Even the pseudo-mind that experiences these discords is unreal and exists only as an inverted misconception of the one infinite true consciousness.
In the world of illusions and shadows, there is only one thing we can know of a certainty. It is that you and I, individually, are consciously aware of the fact that we exist. Because we are not aware of any option, (you can’t know what does not exist) we give these appearances credence, look to them for our welfare, supply and the solution to our problems. We trust this make-believe world to give us life and sustain our health and longevity. We assume it will give us peace, harmony and balance in our life experiences. When this doesn’t work, we consult with gurus or we pray to some man made images hoping that whatever form we are praying to, will somehow bypass natural laws and intercede in our behalf.
As long as we, in our ignorance, embrace this fraudulent environment, we can expect to experience its devastating effects. The German philosopher Johan Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-18320 got it right when he observed, “There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.”
Wouldn’t you give anything to be free of this disruptive pressure cooker world and be harmoniously guided by the same natural laws and principles that keep the planets in their orbits, control the seasons and give life to all growing things?
Surely there must be a reality we can count on. There is. Gratefully, we don’t have to remain the victims of the destructive world we were born to. We have the option of ignoring the unreal human existence and focusing our full attention on the reality of the universe; the one infinite, all-inclusive, perfect, unlimited Consciousness:
“That which is aware, known or felt by one’s inner self. ..the upper levels of mental life of which a person is aware.”
This consciousness is YOUR consciousness, your only true identity.
How do we make the transition from the false to the true? Gratefully we don’t have to! We are already there. All we need to do is to become consciously aware of this fact, accept it and know it is forever committed to our well being. As long as you are consciously aware of this, with a positive expectancy and the exclusion of everything else, you embody the entire infinite, perfection and power of the one Infinite universe. It is the Law.
“This is a spiritual universe… Trying to change a material universe or trying to humanly interfere with what is going on in the world, will get you nowhere. There is no permanent peace in fighting the evils of the word with the weapons of the world….the evils of the world are not power.” (Awakening Spiritual Consciousness, Joel Goldsmith).
