I am a vessel of perception, into which the Light enters. My perception is comprised of five parts or desires. In one desire, I sense my inner essence – my “I,” the human being within me; in another desire I sense my body – the animate part of me; in the third desire I sense all that is close to me; in the fourth desire I sense my environment – society, humankind, nature; and in the fifth desire I sense something even more exalted and distant from me.
Everything depends on the desire – how close it is to me and how the Light affects it. The impressions from all the desires are then gathered and projected onto a screen in my mind, where this whole picture is shown to me.
The difference between this and a movie is that I actually live my life on this screen. This movie is my life and my perception of reality.
The corporeal perception just described does not differ from the spiritual one, where you also have a screen that is influenced by forces, which paint the picture of the spiritual world for you. The difference is that unlike the spiritual world, in this world I am not aware of and do not participate in the creation of this picture of the world inside of me.
However, when I exist in the spiritual world, I “create” the movie by changing my qualities. This movie will be played inside me depending on my connection to the Upper Force, the projector. The degree of this connection is my ability to launch the playback.
Our goal is to make the perfect movie, which will reveal the complete connection and love between you and the Creator.
