The experience of the duality of the world has one purpose only: to realize the futility of chasing desires and material pursuits and people. The duality when observed with awareness is containing in it the realization of the Absolute as being the one to be sought rather than illusory pursuits as mice in their wheels. The biggest teaching of this world is the “bad” and “uncomfortable” since these are making us search for a solution, for answers to the question “Why?”. The Absolute, the Eternal is hidden behind the scenes, in the very fabric of all and everything, therefore deciding that “this is good” and “that is bad” is misconception and keeping us far from the realization of the truth.
If the world would have been constructed on “goodness” only, everyone would have been only enjoying their sweet forgetfulness of everything since it’s in our nature that we try to preserve the “good” experience for as much as possible. The mechanics of the illusion are such that a good experience even if it lasts years seems like passing so fast whereas the “bad” experience seems like lasting forever and it is all because of our desire to prolong the “good” and shorten the “bad”.
As soon as the differentiation disappears everything becomes neutral and transitory. In the moment of contraction, of feeling bad which immediately creates the desire to stop it or to run away, the mechanics of the illusion are stretching the time. It may look cruel for someone or something to create a trap like this. But it’s because we are the Ultimate, and we created such an elaborate trap that is capable to keep ensnared the oblivious Divine Beings. Anything less than that would have been like a test that comes with the answers written under the questions.
It takes huge power of discrimination and dedication to exit the trap that we prepared for ourselves. It’s but a game of hide and seek that has been won already. All the particles of the Divine scattered in all the Realms are going to find one day their way Home. There’s no other way. The only thing that differs is when. But even the notion of time is bounding us when in reality for the Absolute there’s no time or space limitation whatsoever.
Some of us have a call to realize themselves earlier, some want to dive into the illusion more and more and lose themselves. Is there anything correct or incorrect? I believe that there’s no such separation, after all is the individual soul choice plus a certain predestination according to previous existence. In the end, for all of us there’s nothing but coming home, diving back into the primordial Being, into the Nothingness out of which everything sprouted.
For some it may sound scary , they’re afraid that we as individuals will be gone, since the tiny droplet of water unites back with the ocean of provenance. But that is just the trick of ego, the little self which is unaware of the fact that being a tiny particle devoid of its divinity the whole experience is limited and corrupted, but when we get back to being One with the Absolute, with the Consciousness, then we are one and Many and there’s no differentiation, we are collective, we are there the Ego(knowledge that we are all and nothing – and we are limitless), the very everything that we are oblivious of right now. So holding onto the illusion is one of the smartest tricks of Maya, because it’s like we are struggling to keep ourselves in a tiny box forever, fearful of the unknown instead of experiencing Everything realizing that there’s no time-space boundary nor any other type of other boundaries for the Source.
Just think about it; what an elaborate and complex game of souls we are experiencing; the range of feelings and perceptions, the uniqueness of the experience for each individual. The multitude of interpretations and explanations of the world and its experience by each of us. I am sure that if we would be able to realize that we are watching a very elaborate movie in which we have the opportunity to be actors, spectators, producers, directors and what not… We would definitely remain in awe of the audacity of the Creator to throw such amazing ideas and twists for little pieces of Itself to experience, in order to make them aware of their origin when all the other solutions were proven incorrect, and push them to wake up to their true Selves.
