When our ego attaches itself to the body and we believe we are the body, separation occurs and we suffer. We think I am better than others or, as most people do, we think I am insufficient and unworthy. Either way, this creates an illusion, a false sense of reality, a misperception, and we live lost in the separation. We think we are individuals and try to navigate a life based on a false reality.
When the truth begins to dawn that no individual exists, no separation exists and we are not the body, then we can live in a truer reality where we understand and experience that we are consciousness and we are not the body or our thoughts. When this realization dawns, we become the witness and we observe, we watch, we witness all that happens. In all states – waking, dreaming and deep sleep – and in all situations, we remain pure consciousness, fully awake and aware.
At some point in our evolution, the next level of truth dawns that everything is consciousness; the body, our thoughts and all that exists is a manifestation of the Self, of God, of pure awareness. Everything in the created universe glows with the blue light of consciousness as our eyes see the essence of consciousness in everything.
In the final realization, we realize what was always the case; that there is only God, only consciousness. The one pure consciousness has created a play made of consciousness, within consciousness. That is all that is – our Self, the universe, God – all one consciousness playing within consciousness.
