You Are the World

It is truly amazing how every single individual has a different perspective of the world. Even people who have an incredible amount of similarities in their points of view will not agree on 100% of their interpretations of the world. This is all because of our individualized identities. It is because of what concepts and ideas we feel are part of who we are.

On the other hand; it is equally amazing how people of all walks of life, different backgrounds, different social and economic classes, and so on; can transcend the individualistic point of view and see the world in more of the same light than people who might appear to have more in common with their material selves. When anyone is able to see the world without looking through the warped perspective of their ego, they can start to see how much more vast everyone's similarities are than the differences that appear on the surface. A tremendous amount of depth is added to reality.

It maybe realized that the world we have become accustomed to is really an illusion and that we are the ones who keep it real. We reinforce the illusion with our egoic perspective. Here are a few quotes by very "different" people who transcended the traditional egoic point of view.

"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." ~Albert Einstein

"The sun shines not on us, but in us. The rivers flow not past, but through us, thrilling, tingling, vibrating every fiber and cell of the substance of our bodies, making them glide and sing." ~ John Muir

"When there is no place that you have decided to call your own, then no matter where you go, you are always heading home." ~ Muso Soseki

"Although the world is full of suffering, it is full also of the overcoming of it." ~ Helen Keller

"If you understand, things are just as they are... If you do not understand, things are just as they are." ~ Zen Saying

Science is already starting to prove that our entire world or universe, for that matter, is created with in us. Don't take my word for it. Do some search engine research yourself. Nothing exists independently of intelligent observation. Realizing the depth of truth in these concepts; one must realize that they are their entire world. I am the world. You are the world.

Thats a a good one my Friend, its funny how perspective can be seen differently through different people. Take for istance, Everything that is, like you say..Within the universe, lives within us through our body and soul. A normal Person can see the world as it is like everyone else, but take a blind person, or a deaf person... They too can sense and see exactly the same things, because it is alive within them.

Perspective is truly and interesting aspect of life. It's real.

Without a doubt. Perspective is the doorway to the outside world as well as the one that exists with in. In reality they are mirror images of each other because they are one in the same.

Thanks for your insight Vivid.

... the motivation behind the 'shift' movement. Get as many people as we can to buy into the collective concept of unity and love and to 'expect' or know we can tap and exude Christ consciousness or 'supernatural' energies... and, so it shall be.

The great awakening is unfolding.

Indeed. We all have the power of Christ consciousness within. More and more people will experience and participate in the global 'shift'. I am enjoying the ride.

Thanks SS.
