If I had to describe my life at the moment I would say it’s patchy. I go through patches of super-consciousness and patches where the flow is gloopy. And yet, even in the mire of gloopiness I can receive the most illuminating insights that contribute to change for the better and my awareness of the journey.
The place where this narrative is decided upon, the narrative of ‘change’ and ‘better’, is defined not without but within. It’s happening in my choosing to view it through the filters developed from that part of my self that is illusion, that perceives only illusion, but thinks itself and the world is the real deal. So engaged in Self and the world, it has a dialogue running constantly to pin ‘reality’ into place and create story around it that feeds everything I want or fear it to say.
I am the observer and am seeing this play out, not only in myself but in others. And it’s a real game-changer. I am living both ways simultaneously, playing the illusory game whilst being removed and aware that a part of my self is engaged in this game. I know I’m not the only one, I believe we are all caught up in this dynamic in one way or another. Have you noticed this? I believe that to notice is what some call ‘waking up’.
