As Awareness expands, the walls of the Grand Dream close in and there is no where to hide through running, sedating or distracting as you have done for eons. The mind [false self] is being ‘undressed’ as the fraud it is at every turn. The mirrors in your world, which reveal who you are NOT appear everywhere and the more you resist them the more it can feel like you are being suffocated by the illusion that you have previously called home, your reality. You are being drawn ‘inside’ and the pull becomes more and more compelling as the conditioning that has defined the false self fades.
The Grand Dream is dissolving, and life can feel more and more surreal as the solidity you once felt as a measure of consistency in your life loses its tenacity. This shakey feeling is the inevitable result of the impending death of one’s personal identity and cannot be avoided. Simply relax into it and ‘allow’ this illusory self to disappear back into the nothing-ness from which it sprang. What follows this is beyond description, beyond any words or images and yet will be recognized fully when again you experience Who You Really Are.
