The chains of bondage that keep the slumbering God-SELF lingering in the Grand Dream shift with the rolling tide of time [also an illusion]. In one era the glamour of Kings, Queens and conquerors captures humanity’s attention, while in another adventurers and discoverers of new worlds hold the focus of the dream with equal engaging influence. Today’s heroes of the dream are entertainers, actors and entrepreneurs who literally create even deeper layers of dreaming with which to sway the SELF’s attention away from Truth. Every era highlights another phantom attraction, which pervades every phase of the great play the sleeping masses have bought into for eons.
Before the imprisoned SELF chooses Freedom, it must ride the roller coaster of extremes from ecstasy to agony again and again until the last vestige of glamor has burned out its seductive appeal leaving only ‘emptiness’ … vital for the turn ‘within’. There ‘is’ no fault here … the dream’s allure is insidious and pulls the puppet strings of ALL before one trades illusion for Reality.
