There is another world aside from the one that we’re used to living in, which many of us don’t even realize exists. I never did.
We believe that our reality is the only reality and that it’s fixed and solid. We all live in our own realities and every single person goes around in their own reality at any given time.
Every single person we come into contact with or that we pass on the street is living inside their own thinking. They all have their own beliefs and thoughts that shape how they are perceiving the world.
At a deep level we are all the same; we’re all made of the same stuff. But on the level of our personal thinking we’re all completely different. We all see things differently, and perceive things differently, based on the experiences we’ve had in our lives and our conditioning.
Seeing this can help us to understand other people better, and to feel more compassion. We realize that other people really do think and therefore react differently to us, and that everyone is doing what looks best to them, given the thinking they’re experiencing in that moment.
It also helps us see our own very limited perspectives. We are seeing the world via the prism of our thoughts, and that creates reality as we see it. Somebody else will see something very different.
Where we get into trouble is us not realizing that there is anything other than these separate realities. Particularly when our personal reality starts feeling very stressful or hard; when we’re having a lot of stressful thoughts and we’re not sure how to ease the tension.
It’s helped me so much to realize that there is a whole other dimension that I was never previously aware of. I thought my own personal thinking and reality was all there was – it was life as I knew it. So if my personal reality wasn’t feeling so great I was screwed.
Thankfully I now know there is a whole other world of peace available, outside of my personal thinking and outside of the separate realities we all live in.
There is a shared space and energy – a space that we all originated from and that we will all return to. We all have this space within us. It’s the essence of us. This space is uncontaminated by our personal thinking and is where peace, love and joy reside.
There is a world of thought, and a world of love, peace and understanding.
The world of thought can be a lot of fun when we see it for what it is, and when our personal thinking is giving us positive feelings. But it can also bring a lot of suffering when it’s not feeling so good, and we don’t realize there is anything beyond it.
There is a whole other world that exists and that any of us can start living in at any time. We can simply sense the quiet and the stillness and drop into it.
A world of unconditional love, and true joy.
A world where all of our painful thoughts have been transcended.
A world of clarity and great hope.
A world of truth.
When we touch this place of truth inside ourselves, we still walk in this world. But we walk in it anew, with fresh eyes and a deeper feeling. Life starts to feel more beautiful than it ever has before, and this is available to every single one of us, at any time.
