Underlying Existence

How do things get done if no one knows what they’re doing? Coworkers are useless, management is clueless, entire industries are held together by threads. Elections boil down to the worst possible options. Corruption infests wherever money pools. Future generations are locked within age-segregated retention centers.

Yet for some reason, mankind marches on. Despite his attempt to outright murder himself at times, humanity persists. So what’s going on here? How can the world and its inhabitants always seem to achieve the perfect balance on the scales of existence? How can we teeter on a perpetual precipice of disaster yet never fall?

It’s obvious when you think about it — but we rarely stop to consider the issue because this spectacle so completely captures our attention. But if you’re able to quiet your mind for a bit and simply observe, you’ll see it: the world as we know it is a complete and utter fabrication. This is a world composed of dreams not dirt, where material doesn’t really matter.

The evidence is all around us. But don’t feel tricked, this obfuscation endures for a reason. Play requires the suspension of disbelief, so immersion into this illusion requires obscuring its foundation. And even though the world may not always seem worth it, ultimately it serves the purpose it provides.

By realizing this dreamlike nature, our ability to influence increases. At first we better direct ourselves, blossoming into our idealized image. And when we finally shed our self-imposed limiting beliefs, the wonder of the world opens before us. Knowing we’re within a dream provides us the power to move mountains.

And Jesus said, Verily I say unto you, if ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do what I have done, but also if ye say unto this mountain, Take thyself away, and cast thyself into the sea, it shall be done. And whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, if ye believe, ye shall receive it.

Throughout time this message is repeated, but who will listen?
