What if this IS Reality: Part 3
Now that we have proven that we are real, physical, and in a physical environment, let’s look at what is not physical. No, not what isn’t real.
The Facts – Non-physical:
You make something “good/bad” by giving your opinion about it.
Yes, you really are thinking that this is crap.
I think, therefore I am. We would like to think that that phrase in some weird way sums it up.
OK. How about … what you think, is real to you. But, what others think, is merely opinion. Therefore it is assumed, and not fact. I had a dream that I was flying. Prove that I didn’t have that dream.
Emotions are real. Tell a child that their hamster died.
And as I pointed out earlier, we are only interested in what we can reference as fact. What we think and feel can not be entered as something that is real. But on the other hand, what we express and how we express it is real.
Therefore, emotions (although felt mentally) are expressed physically. Emotions are things that make people act or react in their own unique way. Two people can have the same emotions, but choose to express it completely differently. You can also tell the difference between someone who is physically emotional and someone who is mentally emotional. Emotional doesn’t mean unstable, but rather feeling/expressive.
Things outside of here are not provable and not guaranteed.
What about the physical that we can’t prove to be physical/real? Prove that there are other places to go and other people to meet. Sure you can pick up the phone, or turn on the TV and they are there. But ask them if where they stay is still there, and if they actually exist on the other side of the phone. Whatever they say is purely opinion. I’m sure that they will give a good argument, nevertheless. We won’t even get into the brain-numbing question of, “Surely the Universe must have a limit. How big can the infinite really be?” (ow!).
The future is a second away
The past is/was real. It can be argued that it is not part of reality (the here and now). But, it can be proven, and sometimes has physical remains. So the past does count. If the past wasn’t real, then explain a library. And convince me that you didn’t read all the other words before this one, and this one.
The past is real. It has made you who you are today, and it is always a point of reference for everyone. And yet Time is simply a measure of change. Time is man made and doesn’t exist. The time difference between yesterday and today is simply how much the earth changed position on its axis.
The future is not real. Got any physical or mental proof that it’s there? And why is it that we’ve been in the past, we are in the present, but we can never get to the future. Some of us live in the future (in their heads) and dream of how their life is going to be. Imagine being around someone who was from the future (or thought they were). You would experience the most boring person who new everything that was going to happen; who would say annoying things like, “I told you so”; who lived for the next moment & not the “Now”; who would have no sense of adventure or not value the element of surprise; and best of all, a person with a strange dress sense. Basically, someone who wasn’t real.
“Like, connect with the Oneness, man.”
Sure, we are connected by energy and atoms and air and earth - which apart from being a nice spiritual concept that can be proven scientifically - in my physical experience you are over there and I am over here. Therefore separate. We are separated by physical time, space, distance etc. I can’t visually see our connected energy (unless I begin to acknowledge that fuzzy blue glow around you).
Even reaching out and touching someone doesn’t mean that you are one. You as a finger are still touching them as an arm. Your finger doesn’t become their arm. Most people would pass out or have to go to therapy if that were to happen.
So, Oneness is one of those concepts that you either eventually get your head around, or you simply trust in your experiences of the world around you. Understand that you do have a ripple effect in anything that you think and do, and that your power and influence on the physical and non-physical world does make a difference - the butterfly & Tokyo analogy.
Getting Past Our Physical Limitations:
Sure if we transcend the physical we call it dying. But what about transcending the physical and NOT dying – transcending Death? If you truly transcend the physical, then death is no longer a factor. And we’re not talking about some egotistical, materialistic “I’m afraid of dying” sense, but in a complete mastery of you mind, body and soul.
