What great news, dear friends–a toast is in order!. The grandest, most important merger has occurred! It is a merger of “knowing” that you and the Lord of your Being are One! To this grand recognition we will be lifting our glasses in celebration. It’s what Rumi, the great Persian poet and mystic, expressed through the following quote:
“I searched for God and found only myself. I searched for myself and found only God.”
Strictly speaking, of course, we cannot actually define this as a merger; for that would imply that we had actually experienced a separation. You see, we already are–and always were–One with God. It has only been illusion of Maya that made it appear otherwise. Through ignorance, we have been conditioned to believe that we are the body-mind of name and form. In John 10:30, this message is again related through the following verse:
“I and my Father are one.”
The Truth, of course, is not that one highly notable figure named Jesus was the only son of God. He came to make our lives more abundant by sharing that such was the birthright of every man, woman, and child. How, logically, could the Creator “not” be in his fruit? Never in a million years would “parents” within this Divine Matrix believe that their genetic material had not been passed along to their offspring:
Our true heritage is Divine, because we are of–and from–One Divine Creator.
The eyes of understanding open wide when we realize that just as our nighttime dream experiences are created by Consciousness in the dream state; so, also, are all objects, events, and circumstances in the waking state, which the majority of persons erroneously believe to be foundational reality. That reality is actually occurring within a dream. The following passage from Hebrews 11:3 may help to make this stunning revelation more clear:
“Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear.”
For the sake of clarity, we must be very clear about our understanding of the material shared within this article. I am NOT stating that experiences are unreal; but that they are only relatively real within the contextual framework of a dream. Does this information not suddenly help us understand why placebos give rise to cures and alleviate many conditions? It is our belief “in them” that creates their effects. “The mind,” as Paramahansa Yogananda stated, “is the creator of everything. In other words, although the champagne referred to in the title is not absolutely real (in the way we would have previously assumed), it can still make our legs wobbly. Now, let’s pop the bubbly and pour!
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
