An Inside Story 80
TWO WORLDS 28…
REALIZING that the world we see is an illusion – a world that’s created to provide the lessons we need to learn – is very important for our progress. Once we understand that, we tend not to take life quite so seriously. If we relate it to watching a movie, we are then able to stand aside somewhat and view it without identifying with the ongoing life drama. More like a spectator or bystander.
We always have the choice of changing movies if what we are seeing is not what we want. We can get up at any time and go to another theatre. Of course we also have that opportunity by committing suicide, as too many people do, but that is not a solution. Another unsatisfactory way to avoid facing the world and its necessary lessons is by over dosing on drugs.
Why? Because, once we leave our physical body and the physical world, we return home to the spiritual world. The curtain of ignorance is lifted from our mind and we remember everything, including why we chose that particular ‘life movie’ in the first place. We chose it prior to incarnating so as to learn the lessons that it held.
To take our own life on purpose is to leave our ‘life movie’ before the lessons are learned. It’s quite possible some of us have done this in many prior incarnations. If we have, each time we returned home to the spiritual world, we would have said to ourselves “Damn, why did I make that same mistake again.” Remember, the lessons are repeated until learned!
Our voluntary choice then would be to re-incarnate into a similar ‘life movie’ where those exact same lessons, that we needed and wanted to learn, would once again be presented to us. If we cop out again, it will be repeated again and again, life after life until we learn what we need and want to learn.
We are doing all this ourselves, no one else. There is no angry God up there waiting to judge us or a devil down there waiting to stick a pitch fork into us. There’s only our self – It is our curriculum – We have made it all up…
