We often talk about the inside-out understanding. But what is the inside we keep pointing to and why is it so confusing for many people when we tell them to look inside?
Imagine that YOU are lying in your comfortable bed, sleeping, and dreaming (I will use CAPITALS to distinguish between the “REAL” world and “dream” world). You are inside the dream enjoying a bit better looking, slimmer and taller body than your sleeping SELF possesses.
You see a beautiful landscape, trees, animals, and other people. A captivating story unfolds. You are noticing good and bad thoughts running through your mind and feelings within your body. You exercise your free will by making decisions of where to go, what to say, and since you are spiritually advanced and understand that you create your own personal reality from the inside-out you decide which thoughts to listen to and how to let go of bad thoughts about your work and politics. And you feel great because you understand your own creative power.
But since you are in a dream, what is the true SOURCE of all your thoughts? What is the true SOURCE of everything, including your job, politicians, and world problems? And who is the „you“ with all the issues and what are „you“ made of?
Since we understand the nature of dreams the answers are obvious:
And in a similar way that we can have a lucid dream in which we know that it is just a dream, and all is well despite all the horrible monsters around us, we can “wake up” in our reality too.
In our real life, we are all like the dreamed up characters, believing in some degree of control. But everything truly comes from the inside.
The inside does not mean inside your body or head, your personal consciousness or you thought system. The inside means your TRUE SELF, UNIVERSAL CONSCIOUSNESS, GOD, BIG MIND, QUANTUM FIELD, FORMLESS ENERGY, ONENESS, ALLNESS… That which creates everything. The true source of all thoughts that create our personal realities.
And since we ourselves are not their creators, it is pointless to try to fix our moods or choose between good and bad thoughts. We can´t. The same way the characters in our dreams can´t fix their moods. And they don´t have to. Neither do we ever have to.
When you wake up within a dream you do not stop participating. Your experience changes. You go out and play within the dream – full-out and fearless. Enjoying. Laughing. Crying. Cursing and swearing. Loving.
And the same goes for your “real” life.
YOU truly are ok, no matter what.
With all my love
