Only a Dream (pt.2)

M: It’s damn near impossible to interact with the world as if it were a dream.

J: So the ego informs you, as it MUST. It cannot possibly see it as ONLY a dream, because its very existence is contingent on the dream being “real.” The eyes of the body cannot help a “self” that demands the body define IT. Your goal is to see beyond what the body’s eyes show you, because what the eyes see is not “there,” nor are there "eyes" that SEE.

It must no longer matter, because the body is as much a dream as the eyes that seem to prove the “world” REAL. If everything that you are aware of is ONLY a dream, all must be included and nothing excluded from that WHOLE. If the world is ONLY a dream, your body is also a part of that and, hence, the “self” that believes it is a body is itself ONLY a dream.

M: So how do I interact with a dream? If my life is a dream, how do I then live it?

J: Fear makes it REAL. There is NO reason to fear a dream, simply because it is NOT real. You have NO idea of what you would experience if you were free of all fear. This is impossible for you to comprehend because your “self” is nothing more than an aggregate of fearful THOUGHTS.

Therefore, to be absent ALL fear would result in your experiencing an absence of “self” and this is terrifying to you. I teach that God did not create a void. You voided what God created in your mind and replaced it with the meaningless. I assure you that when you dissociate from ALL your meanings you will not experience emptiness, but will be filled with indescribable joy.

M: I just dreamed up my children?

J: The ego manufactures experiences in the dream that support its being more than ONLY a dream. YOU must learn that it is ONLY a dream and this includes all the parts you have invested meaning in. You invest in many attachments and associations as meaningful. You must see them as ONLY a dream. Otherwise, you will sabotage your efforts to awaken by remaining victim to what is ONLY a dream.

The parts you “love” will hurt you and you will seek revenge and retribution, because love is not possible in a dream. Yet, it is much easier to forgive, when it is ONLY a dream. When the dream is forgiven in its entirety, you will awaken to your REALITY.

You are invulnerable to attack when it is ONLY a dream. You are free to engage all parts without fear, because, when you have come to realize it is ONLY a dream, you will no longer FEAR any part of what is NOT real.

When you understand that it is ONLY a dream, you will dance joyfully upon the stars until the sun rises and you reach out to embrace it. It is your dream, my brother, and it can be whatever you choose, because it is ONLY a dream.

M: Then how do I manipulate the dream to make it what I want it to be?

J: You can rule the dream, simply by allowing no part of it to rule YOU. Nothing more than this is necessary. You must see that no part of the dream can hurt you, nor have you need to protect from attack in what is ONLY a dream.

M: So when can I stop paying taxes?

J: When the whole is denied, the parts are free to victimize. Parts detached from the whole have lost purpose and engage in meaningless, chaotic pursuits. This is what your dream shows you. See it in WHOLE and the parts will fall away from your own awareness, because they are no longer detached from the whole and no longer need suffer through the purposeless activities that you have assigned. Until you see the whole as ONLY a dream, you will be antagonized by the parts in the mistaken belief that they can affect you.

M: Nobody else in the world acts as if this is a dream.

J: God did not create separate, disconnected parts. Only that which THINKS it can detach from TRUTH could “dream” of such a thing. Yet, it is ONLY a dream and TRUTH remains unchanged by your dreaming. When you awake, that will become immediately apparent. The only true joy you will ever experience IN  your "world," is in realizing the TRUTH that you are not “there.”

M: So nobody is real? I dreamed them all up?

J: You are not “real.”

A mind dreaming it can be victimized by other separate minds, must learn to SEE what is NOT there in order to free itself from what it dreams can be done TO it. This is how it learns that everything done TO it is done BY itself.

M: Then why even bother posting this stuff on the internet, if my mind is the only mind?

J: To teach your “self” that the thoughts “you” think are no more “real” than the body you believe contains you, the world that you inhabit or the “people” that make up that “world.”

Thoughts that seek to represent and describe a dream world are as much a part of that dream as the images that seem to move around in it. The dream is no less whole than the TRUTH that you will awake to. The only difference is that the dream is NOT TRUE, but ONLY a dream.

I ask that you see the dream in its wholeness, so you are no longer victimized by disparate parts that can only oppose one another. Until you do, your thoughts about others are no more real than the images you see and claim as representing other minds. You are not “here,” nor are your thoughts, images, beliefs; nothing is “here,” because it is ONLY a dream.

A belief in “your” mind, as separate from the wholeness of truth, is as delusional as the belief in “other” separate minds thinking separate thoughts. Believing that your mind is “the only mind” is no less delusional than believing in other minds. There are no other minds, nor is there a mind that belongs exclusively to you.

M: Whatever happened to “I think, therefore I am”?

J: You have yet to THINK and, until you do, the thoughts you now worship will continue to demonstrate to you that you are delusional. You are dreaming and your thoughts are part of that. In fact, they are ALL of it. There is nothing else.

M: Well then, this discussion is a dream also. If my mind is delusional then so are you.

J: I am just your attempt at remembering amidst a soon to be forgotten dream. when you awake, I will be gone, because you will see that WE are one. When you awake, none of this will matter. None of it will have even “existed,” since there will not be a “time” when it could have been real.

The dream is exhausting you. You are very tired of dreaming that you ARE what you could NEVER be. Waste not a moment more of your precious mind on dreaming. Wake up and SEE the real world that God created in your name.

You are still there and God is waiting.
