Imagine that the Real You – the SELF or Consciousness, in which All That Is ‘appears’, is a diamond. When you ‘as’ the SELF ‘extend’ Your-SELF through this diamond, the rays ‘express’ much like the various colors that emanate from a prism when Light shines though it. Conditioning is like ‘clouding’ of the diamond facets, which then ‘distort’ the rays. For example, Love that is Pure is ONE … totally without conditions but when the SELF ‘sleeps’ in the Grand Dream believing IT is a separated entity called ‘you’, the Love it experiences and expresses is tainted [conditioned] ‘by’ that belief. When finally, YOU [the Real SELF], begin to immerge from your long slumber in the dream of separation … the Awareness of Who You Really Are ‘expands’ and these diamond facets begin to clear.
What occurs for a while is a blend of conditioning and Purity. For instance, anger, resentment and judgment may still be very present while compassion, gentleness and kindness has blossomed expressing Pure ‘aspects’ of the SELF. This strange ‘seeming’ contradiction can make you feel like the Truth that is beginning to show up is not authentic. This is however a normal experience as the false self is dissolving back into the SELF and the Real YOU is coming into view from behind the clouds of conditioning that have imprisoned the Real YOU for eons.
