Looking for something new from "self to self" then check this out.

------------------------------------------------------------------------


WHY LIFE CAN ONLY BE A DREAM (IMAGINED)

What is the purpose of life?

Life (or existence) is the spontaneous self experiencing and self expression of the Self to itself within itself.

This is why mystics sum up existence as "Raab Di Leela" (its all God's play) since God (the Self) alone exists.

So whatever the Self creates has to be placed within itself, because there is no other reality within which to place it.

Just as ocean and wave are indivisible (as water), the creator and creation are indivisible (both being consciousness).

In personal terms if nothing existed except you, whatever you created would have to be placed within yourself.

Where else could any creation be placed if you alone existed? Hence the Creator and creation can never be separate.

The desire to experience and express arises as spontaneously as our dreams each night. Who intends to dream?

And yet it occurs without intention, because such is the nature of consciousness: to imagine experiences.

But experiences can never exist (be perceived) except through the contrast between opposites (such as good and bad).

Without the contrasts between dualities (opposites), experiences can never be perceived.

Since the Creator alone exists without any contrasts, for the sake of play (experiences) contrasts are simply imagined.

Hence, creation is an illusion (a dream), the trick of the infinite upon the infinite for the sake of play.

One forgets one's Self to increase the reality of dreams, since the greater the reality, the more stimulating the experience.

Since experiences require separation, the Infinite can never be experienced since it alone exists (without separation).

So experiencing the Infinite is as impossible as looking at one's face, since one can never separate to look at one's face.

Even looking in a thousand mirrors, one sees only a reflection of one's face: it is still not one's real face.

From the absolute viewpoint, you can never separate from what you already are (to experience what you already are).

Hence to truly know your face, one needs only to simply be quiet to realize (know) its existence.

Just as sugar cannot taste sugar (since it is sugar itself), the highest truths in life can only be realized (known).

Hence, to truly know your Self (that 'you' exist), you need only be quiet to realize (know) your real Self (as awareness).

Awareness alone is the screen within which the world appears, just as a world is imagined within awareness during sleep.

Ultimately, all paths to truth are simply the means, while realizing (knowing) your Self (as awareness) is the sole end.

Since awareness is devoid of any material substance or space, there is never any movement or transformation anywhere.

Hence, no experiences or creation of any kind can ever 'really' exist, except as a dream within awareness (the Self).

So knowing this, simply remain in awareness and play as you wish.

If it's "all god's play" and "the creator and the creation are indivisable", and "can never be separate", isn't the creator doing all by and to itself ?who or what else is available to "simply be quiet to realize (know) your real self (as awareness)" ?

If awareness is all there is how could it not "remain in awareness" ?

The answer, already in the item, posted, is:-

All of this, me writing, you reading, and all the nonsense that is "Life as We Know It" is only IT, GOD, Awareness, or what ever name it goes by in your neck of the woods, dreaming/imagining ITSELF to BE so IT can experience things not available as the No-thing IT really is.
Without waffling on, the Truth is "you," "me" or "anyone else" either know this is all an illusion or not. Makes no difference either way, it's only the ONE and ONLY SELF with, or without amnesia, playing both sides of the coin.
"Life" can be fun or it can be a pain in the neck. There are no singular choices, which ever way it goes, even if "you" are lead to believe there are. It's all the ONE being, doing, thinking ALL.
No if's but's or in betweens, this "imagined" world is an "experience" not to be missed.

Hi spiritec, lovely to see you again.

The links to www.theself.org and then to the www.truthisone.org are great. All those thoughts about the unity of religion are certainly flying around the cosmos at the moment...

as ever...

Love

So there is already no-one separate who can possible do anything, including the sitting quietly stuff, or remaining in awareness, to make dream characters into that which they already are.

Yes heron, how funny it is:

an injunction for awareness to remain awareness...

Laughing Laughing

Awareness is ever aware.

Awareness aware of nothing...

it is called unspeakable

Awareness aware of ideas and sensations...

it is called the common experience

Awareness of naked awareness...

it is called enlightenment.

It cannot be seen, tasted, felt, heard, smelled or known.

Yet here it is...

Love

Yes well you're obviously not warming your feet with a small blow heater at 10.00pm at night in a vacant office building preparing for an early morning meeting... Cool

Ahh the sweetness of life as it is... Very Happy

Love
