One of the main aspects of spiritual growth is the realization that you actually ARE the reality you previously thought you lived IN.
For example, at first, we feel that we find love by getting it from other people. When we feel loved by others, that is when we experience love.
Then we can move to a state where we are literally “in love” with someone. It’s literally like you and I are bathing within the warm glow of love itself.
And then we find that this Love can actually be experienced with everyone and everything. This Love then becomes unconditional. We become “in love” with it All!
Yet once we start inquiring as to where this Love actually comes from in the first place, we realize that it’s not coming from outside of us at all! It’s actually coming from within. The Source of Love is within.
Dive down even further and you’ll realize that not only is the Source within you, but you actually ARE this Source. You ARE Love itself. Everything you say, everything you do, and everything you are is simply a physical expression of the Love that you are.
You don’t exist in physical reality. Physical reality exists WITHIN YOU! You ARE physical reality!
There really is no reality outside of you. You actually ARE All That Is. It is all you. You are that.
What we perceive in physical reality is nothing more than a collection of props, a projection of the mind, a big illusion.
What is real is the EXPERIENCE you’re having, not the props that appear within the experience.
The one who seeks enlightenment is the enlightened one seeking itself.
The experience we call Life is God experiencing God.
You actually ARE everything you think you live IN.
You are not within anything, including physical reality. You ARE physical reality.
You are not IN love. You ARE Love.
You are not IN God. You ARE God.
I AM That, I AM.
