Eternal Is Real

“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.

    “We are meant to experience life, physical life, as real; otherwise, the illusion would have no meaning to us.”

    Or do you mean the illusion would have no meaning to God? We are not, only God is?

    Love

      I’m not sure what you are saying to me. I meant that the illusion would have no meaning to us. But we are part of God, according to ACIM and ACOL. So we, in our essence, are real, as God is.

      Is this better?

      Love, Celia

        So we are not real, only God is real and we are God’s illusion? There is only God and God is dreaming that we are/He is real in a physical Universe but it is only n dream, an illusion, His illusion?
        If this is so, then the next question is – Why?

        Maybe we could not sustain true reality if the things that we do in this world were real. If the blood were not catsup, then how could we survive?

    Well described. Physical stuff is slowed down energy of God, the infinite source of energy is directly in contact with it through breathing to keep its supply regulated.
    Our Ego and our mind are biggest barrier to ‘experience’ that we are not this body. No one can drop ego, because the person who drops is still there. It happens on its own by God’s grace. Only we can bring our mind into No-mind state through meditation. Then in a miraculous moment this no-mind state gets coincides with no-ego state and in a moment that glimpse as well as this transformation happens.
