We are everything
All is One
Everything is Illusion
The Kingdom of Heaven is Within
Phrases I hear again and again. Sometimes understood, but often spoke in rote; although they contain truth all such phrases unfortunately have the power to become memes. Michael Talbot wrote that the Universe is a hologram, that each part of the universe contains an entire copy of the whole. We as humans therefore are not just smaller versions of the universe, but a universe unto ourselves. Its hard to visualise I think when someone says; Hey you are everything, everything is illusion! where can that fit in with our view on reality? Sure it can probably be understood in theory and even on intellectual terms. But it isnt really observable.
Taking a trip inside oneself, we discover that we are depthless that we are infinite we have no outer edge and no inner edge. Yet we focus on the aspect of our reality that is immediately present in front of us; the piece of life from which we immediately partake. How small is that part of our reality when compared to the vastness of our town, city or country? As we live out our daily dramas, how minute is that compared to the billions of interactions that are occurring every second?
We are a tiny speck upon the planet; which itself is a tiny infinitesimal particle in the vastness of space
Yet, we are everything. Can that really be so? Reality goes on forever not only in space and time but also within itself. Realms, universes, dimensions; all embedded within the multiple layers of reality; just as a fractal
Intuition, premonitions, emphathy, telepathy is it possible that these forms of perception are available to us because we are similar to fractals? We contain within us everything that exists, just as we are contained within everything that exists. We know when someone is about to phone us because their decisions their thought pattern unfolds within us, just as we unfold within them. Our life experiences together, create links and tethers, which bind us on levels we cant always fathom.
Perhaps as we become more sensitive to our reality and to ourselves we can pick up on all that exists within us, and thus understand all that exists outside of us.
