“Once awakened from the dream of separation, the awakened soul can once again celebrate its most divine dance with God.”
Our fears and anxieties are the imaginings of the dreamed self that feels itself separate from the one divine consciousness.
When we awaken the unified Soul Self beyond that dreamed separate self, the construct of the dream crumbles and all the conditioning that was built within the dream falls away with it.
When you’re dreaming at night and in the dream you’re being chased by a tiger, it seems very real and you experience fear within the dream.
When you awaken in the morning into an “awake” consciousness, the dream fades away. And with it, the fears , anxieties, confusions and other emotional states that were a part of the dream, fade away as well.
The same is true as we awaken from the dreamed or constructed self that we have created in our mind. It seems so real. But when we awaken to the truth of our soul and the love that moves through our soul, the constructed and conditioned dream of self fades away. And with it goes the fears, anxieties, confusions, doubts, and emotional wounds that belong only to that dreamed self.
Your fears and anxieties are not authentic to your imperishable soul. They belong only to the self you have dreamed into being in your own mind.
Within the stillness and presence of meditation, we can point our awareness to, and thus awaken, the true and eternal Self. With the true Self awakened, we no longer need to continue dreaming a self into being.
Everything we do that brings us the most pleasure in life has some element of forgetting about our “self” for awhile.
Dancing, listening to music, reading a good book, painting, meditation…..
We become so immersed in the experience and sensation of the playful and creative moment that the mind is distracted.
It forgets to be concerned about the self. It forgets the oh so serious business of ensuring that the self stays safe, relevant and important.
It is in those moments of forgetfulness and abandon that we feel most free and alive and whole. Connecting far more deeply with the people and the world around us is easier in those moments of forgetting about ourself.
The real issue is that when we’re too inwardly focused on maintaining our own image and the illusory construct of identity, then we aren’t bringing our attention fully to the beauty and opportunity of life unfolding around us.
