If you know you’re dreaming, can you continue to dream? That’s what the soul does – the soul appreciates that it’s a dream and that it contains the ego. If you push away the ego, if you cultivate an aversion to that dream, you’re never going to be free because there will be an attachment.
The process is realizing that you and I exist on more than one plane of awareness simultaneously and on one plane suffering stinks, and on another plane suffering is grace.
The question is, “Can you balance those two things in your consciousness?” Taken from the audio set, “Living The Mystery” which you can purchase here for $9 to help support the Love Serve Remember Foundation.
