So, I ask you all one very simple question. Is judging something real or an illusion an act of ego or an act of Divine knowledge?
Every time I hear “this is a dream” or “you are dreaming, man” or “be aware of the dream” something just does not sit right with me. It’s as if I have to force myself to believe this dream stuff. Perhaps “force” isn’t a good word, but it’s as if I am eating a rotten apple and pretending it tastes good. I am eating it because I want to know it, but something is telling me that what I am eating just isn’t right for me.
Here is what I know to this point. I am present in a creation in which I had no part in my memory. In this creation I have certain abilities to create. However, I have no abilities to change the media that the creation itself is present in. I can change the sculpture but I can’t change the marble no matter how much I try or believe I can. It remains marble. Storms rage. Tsunamis strike. Earthquakes rumble and galaxies collide. Suns burn out and die. Novas create regardless of how much I think none of it is real. To those that say the darkness cannot defeat the light I just need to point to the center of the Milky Way to prove otherwise. In a universe of relativity there will always need to be an opposite.
Yet, to some I am dreaming. Fine, I get it. But what do I do with the voice that tells me that in judging something as a “dream” I am creating it as a dream. What part of me is the creator in this situation? Is it me the Being knowing what I know in Absoluteness or is it me that man thinking what I know in ego? The voice inside me simply says, “Let it go. You cannot fathom the marble you are using, you only know the chisel and what you see. Allow it to be and focus on the sculpture.”
So that is where I am at. So I turn to you, and ask simply and humbly, “is judging this existence as a dream an act of ego or and act of God?”
