During the long deep sleep within the Grand Dream the false self has felt ‘incomplete’ [a result of its belief in separation] and seeks everywhere to become WHOLE.
Its search is ‘out there’ where Wholeness does NOT exist since the entire universe has manifested as a result of the illusion of time and space [a ‘from here to there’ form of separation]. The very concept of seeking ‘seems’ to validate this belief. It does not recognize that looking for something it ‘believes’ it does not now have … reinforces the belief that separation is true. In its moment to moment existence this belief then manifests in various forms of ‘neediness’ … co-dependency being one term very familiar to most people.
