Moving right along to part 3 of Ariel’s talk with Abraham, let’s move into the idea of what Reality is.
How the world was created has been discussed here previously.
We have also explored the ideas that the world you see in a dream in the brain and that there really is no phyiscal reality outside of you. Your imagination is, in a very real sense, just as real as this so-called “physical reality” that you experience. It is from this context that Abraham and I begin discussing the nature of Reality… whatever the heck that is.
You are vibration.
Look at a Television. Our TVs keep getting thinner and thinner, yet none of us are looking for the little men and their horses inside the TV that are getting squeezed in there. We accept that they are simply a vibrational reflection. It is a signal that’s being received and deciphered into a particular visual effect.
YOU (the separate self) are like that too, and so is physical reality!
The separate self is nothing more than a perception of vibration. That’s IT. It has no true substance, in and of itself.
When Abraham uses the word “reality,” they have to do so because there are so many people in agreement on it. Instead of implying that our reality is actually Real, they are simply choosing to “speak our language.”
Perhaps more accurately the word “reality” could be substituted with the words “virtual reality” or “perceived reality,” but using our word “reality” helps them bridge the gap between what we think reality is and how it actually is. It creates a sort of common ground.
Without the above understanding, it may seem as if we are talking about two different things. One person talks about reality as if it’s actually real, but another uses the very same word to mean something that’s just perception and nothing more.
So it’s not that anyone is wrong, but rather that they are using the same word to mean two different things. Hence the confusion. It’s a lot like when someone says “I Love You” to another, but both people have two different interpretations of the same word Love.
In our physical reality we have a sense of continuity. We hop on a plane and fly from here to there. When we come back, the place is still there. Physical reality is quite stable.
In our dream world, on the other hand, we can zip around from place to place, from age to age, from experience to experience. It is a very erratic experience without the existence of continuity.
This physical reality that feels so constant and solid is vibrational interpretation. Our dreams, which don’t appear as constant and solid are vibrational interpretation just the same.
Your dreams are Creation too.
What you think, and how you feel, and what manifests in your experience always matches. No exceptions.
What you’re thinking and feeling and what’s manifesting in your dreams always matches too.
If you’ve got some things you’re worried about, they may very well begin to manifest in your dreams.
Your dreams are a reality and you create in this reality just as you do in physical reality.
After Abraham discussed the dreams, I brought up the idea of being the witness to the dreams or being witness to physical reality, rather than literally being in a dream or in a physical reality.
Abraham said “perfect” and came back to the idea of you being the one witnessing the vibrational perceptions. You are the interpreter of the vibrations.
Who you are is a much bigger reality than simply the one inside a physical reality and when you start tuning into this reality, then you can walk among the sick and not get sick. Then you can be the uplifter. Then you can be the healer that you were born to be.
It is by awakening to your True Self that you can be in this world, but not of it.
