Imagine, you are a ship captain in the mid 15th century. Imagine you are just like the thousands of other captains, sailors and the general public who truly believe the world is flat. This is your reality. Sailing off the edge of the earth is a real concern to you, not just a silly myth. Enter into the mind of this captain as if you were him.
This is the gift of insight. When insight arrives - or in other words, when our reality changes, built into it's very nature is immediate and effortless impact.
What a fantastic moment it is to realize and wake up to the inseparable nature of Feeling and Thought. Each time we are gifted with a reawakening to this simple and profound truth - built into it, is deep and immediate impact. It is accompanied by a beautiful feeling of effortless relief and humility. Effortless relief from the idea that our personal evolution is beholden to the circumstances of our life and humility to know that unlike the roundness of the earth, I, just like everyone else, continue to be forget the simple truth of the Thought-Feeling connection.
To my knowledge, there is nobody in recent history who has been so utterly awakened to the Thought-Feeling connection that they never forgot it thereafter. This knowledge is given and it is taken away - as G-d sees fit. The deeper point here today is three fold:
1. You cannot wake yourself up to an insightful knowing that reality is Thought.
2. When you are you are woken up, this knowing MUST change your reality in an effortless and powerful way. Anything less is just not the real thing.
3. Just because we have a wakeful, meaningful, impactful experience of this Truth at 12:38 is no guarantee that we wont need to wake up all over again at 2:15. We are all made to forget - and often!
