“Nothing happens until first a dream”- Carl Sandburg
When I was a kid I always wondered how this world came into existence and what will happen to all of us after this world is destroyed. The mere thought that at some point people stop existing made me very uncomfortable. Slowly and gradually, while growing up, I found spiritually. The more I understood, the more questions I had and the more I studied. One concept that amazed me the most was that the entire universe, living and non-living, is merely a dream of higher intelligence. This higher intelligence that we recognize as God is cosmic energy, the only thing that exists. With the power of thought, this energy takes different forms, i.e., it manifests itself into a physical form. This also means that all the people and things, we love or hate are a manifestation of this energy. The difference in identities is merely an illusion created by the ego.
Though realizing this would take time and effort, what we can infer from this is that we are a part of that energy and also possess the same properties, the same way that a drop of water has the same properties as that of an ocean. But our ignorance and ego are creating an illusion of separation and difference which makes us feel weak. Therefore, our thoughts and firm decisions are more powerful than we think. Everything that we see is a result of a dream and a firm decision. Our thoughts and dreams make us and the society we live in.
We are not a consequence or a victim, as a society, we are creators. As a member of this society, commit yourself towards one change that will add to the betterment of society. If each of us just picks up one issue and do our part, we will recreate heaven on earth. Ask yourself, what the higher intelligence wanted to achieve when it manifested in your form?
