“Once you accept that only the eternal exists and that everything else—however powerful to the separated mind—is illusory, then you can go through the continuum of life without clinging, but simply flowing.” Choose Only Love bk.3, 5:III
Our world of form feels real to us, and we in our physical bodies are, in a sense, “supposed” to let it feel real. But I believe it is illusory, that, as A Course in Miracles says, “There is no world!” ACIM also says that projection makes perception. This would mean that our inner Self is taking from within and sending outside of us what we would experience, also what we would see. We are in a mass hallucination, which could also be called a dream.
If so much is illusory, we can flow through life, knowing that that blood we see is really catsup—not real pain and suffering. This gives us an equanimity that keeps us feeling safe. We learn, discover, from our experiences, but we do best when we don’t take life too seriously. We are meant to experience life, physical life, as real; otherwise, the illusion would have no meaning to us.
Let life flow through us. Let the dream that is life affect us, but not to our detriment.
It is illusion, an idea only, an idea in the Mind of God. The world of physical form is simply slowed down energy, the stuff of God. His eternity is all that is real, and His eternity includes the intangibles of peace, calm, tranquility, harmony, love.
This can only mean comfort for us.
