My twin brother Glenn and I have a favorite expression we often use. Hawaiians great each other and also bid farewell with ‘Aloha!’, the French say hello with a friendly ‘Bonjour!’, a Spaniard will greet you with a friendly ‘Hola!’, and our Italian friends wish you well with a ‘Ciao!’. My brother and I, in lieu of these popular cultural salutations, bid ado with ‘Live above the illusion!’, ceasing the opportunity to replace the normal verbal volley with a reminder that we indeed live within a deceitful illusion, and to each other reinforce the virtue of living above this mere mirage.
Understanding why this 3rd dimensional civilization is but an illusion requires a bit of imagination, a commodity sometimes rare these days as a number of otherwise very capable minds have been tightly squeezed of its most precious asset due to the demands of the status quo, and those soon to be replaced keepers of.
We exist within a mere illusion due to the very nature of our existence here, a nature that exists nowhere else but a 3rd dimensional world, and there are very many higher dimensions and worlds seated upon them. Think of our experience here as summer camp, a different kind of summer camp where instead of learning to shoot a bow and arrow or to swim in the chilly morning lake we learn what it is like to experience dual points or polar opposites of everything we encounter throughout our day. Everything here on Earth has a dual point or polar opposite, everything. Happiness and sadness, poverty and abundance, war and peace, life and death, are all fine examples of our curriculum here, but one shining example of duality sharpens the point exceptionally well, and is actually the only example of duality you need ever know; love and fear. That is the nature of our assignment, or one aspect of our assignment anyway, as the human species is quite gifted at serious multitasking.
In reality, real-ity, there exists only two emotions in this entire universe; love and fear. For what is not of love is certainly born of fear. Of these two emotions, one is real, the other illusion. Our entire universe was created in one breath, one emotion, one thought, and that thought was love. All is love. Love is all and everything that is. Love is the constant, the forever, the eternal. We were created of love, we exist in love, we are love; nothing more, nothing less. But here in this 3rd dimensional world we have something else; a slowly vibrating, negative and debilitating emotion known as fear. So I ask you; if only love is real, and we exist, (for the summer anyway), in a world where there exists love AND fear, is what we are experiencing real? Or are we just living within the illusion? Until we speak again, live above the illusion! Greg
