Humanity is represented as a tiny speck of sand in the depths of an infinite universe. This entire universe, in fact, has nothing to do with spirituality at all. There is not a single point in it that belongs to the spiritual world, and therefore it does not occupy any place in the real reality.
This world where we feel ourselves now and the vastness of the universe with stars and galaxies, none of this exists at all. This exists only in our imagination because we are in an unconscious state and see these hallucinations as if in delirium. It is said that when we wake up, we understand that “we were like in a dream.”
In this dream, we were imagining that we live on the planet Earth surrounded by galaxies and an infinite universe. All this is not real, like a dream caused by electrical processes in the brain, which during sleep is 99% switched off. We can say the same about this life of ours. We are disconnected from true life, as if in a dream.
There is nothing real in this life except the opportunity to wake up and rise upward from this perception, from this dream. That is what we need to do.
