At the root of all suffering, whether it’s physical, mental, emotional or spiritual, is the false belief that we are separate from our Creator and from each other. This belief, and the guilt that it creates, lies within our unconscious mind. We unconsciously project this belief in separation and guilt out into the world, creating our experiences of pain and suffering.
The first step in ending suffering, pain, and guilt is to become aware of our false, unconscious belief that we are separate from God. As a result, our innate desire to know the Truth of our being awakens naturally. This desire turns our attention toward the Truth, Light and God. Consequently, the veils that seem to hide our connection with God / Source automatically lift.
In spiritual meditation, as we turn our attention more fully toward the Light that is within us, we awaken from the dream (nightmare) of believing we are separate from God and our brothers and sisters. Then the dream itself takes on the qualities of Light, joy and peace, for the remaining time that we choose to be involved in the dream (physical life).
