How can we unite our inner and outer world?

 

We do that by examining what prevents this union.  As long as we’re persuaded that something must be concrete or tangible to be real, we approach the world with a limited conscience. There exists a state beyond time-space that conceives, creates, and controls all events happening in our time-space. The access to this higher state of consciousness- in other words, this inner world- requires a cleansing or purifying process. It’s a process in which we let go of our opinions and beliefs, and experience the world in a more innocent, spontaneous and joyful manner. It’s the cognizance of the heart that naturally unites all inner and outer reality, transcends it, and connects it with our Source.

What happens to us after death?

 

This question raises another question: who are we- or better yet- what dies?  We’ve given ourselves an identity- which is none other than a product of our conditioning- by seeing ourselves as a real and lasting person. But where is this person? On what do we base this? Examining this in a perceptive way and inviting the mind to enter into another dimension—the Absolute--- we realize that life and death are but phases of one and the same existence.

What is your opinion on the relationship between ego and self-image? How can we diminish our ego without affecting our self-image?

 

Our self-esteem comes from who we believe ourselves to be. We become what our thoughts tell us we should be. When we understand how this works, we perceive better what we are not, and that we are in reality, other than what we’ve made ourselves to be. We discover a greater beauty in us, one which is not from the ego, but emanating from deep within us. This beauty is none other than Love. The more in harmony we are with this beauty from within, the more we perceive the sensory world, as well as ourselves, as beautiful.

The field we call “void” or “nothing”, does it really exist or is it part of our imagination?

 

This field exists in the dimension that we perceive as “void” or “nothing”. This dimension is the space between thoughts, objects and movements. It’s a space we cannot perceive or experience with our usual approach and that’s why it’s called “nothing”. Sometimes, in moments of enlightenment, we can become aware of this space- a space that is indeed very rich and dynamic. More specifically, this field is pure potential from which emanates, in each new moment, the only reality and all that it includes.
