I can only know emptiness through the illusion of fullness. Love through the illusion of fear. Eternity through the illusion of time. I know who I AM through the illusion of that which I create myself to be.
Our existence, what we egoically call “our lives”, has the purpose of creation. We create our circumstances, our loves, our hates, our dreams, our goals, our fortunes, our misdeeds, our SUFFERING continuously in this egoic cycle of creation. Yet in every moment of this existence is the Observer, the Experiencer of this creative cycle which is the Source of who we are living and sharing in the experience itself. To know this Self is to know your Source, and to know your Source is to know who I AM. Once you know the I AM, the hold these illusions have over you begins to fade. You need not believe in anything, you just need be. You need not have anything, for there is nothing you don’t have. Labels fade. Judgments end. Life becomes eternity.
I have seen these times in very short flashes in my life. These moments are what have gotten me through the the nightmares I have create for myself and others. These moments are what I strive to know…those glimpses of what I AM are powerful and full of joy. They are not “bad”, they are perfect because they lead me to what I AM. Such joy is known through the illusion of fear necessary to experience it. This is what makes both perfect.
Enjoy both moments…seek not to judge them but allow them to be. You will find peace.
