The false self … the one most call ‘me’, is a ‘made-up’ character. It is a ‘projection’ on the screen of Consciousness that the ONE SELF steps into in order to experience IT SELF … ITs ‘infinite potential’, which cannot be experienced in ITs natural state of Emptiness. In this projection or dream IT can taste and savor the full swing of the pendulum between the illusions of dark and light that can only come into existence through the ‘belief’ in separation.
The so-called activities that occur within this Grand Dream … the ‘DOING’ is ‘done’ by the ONE SELF and NOT the false self IT believes [for a season] that IT is, while sleeping ‘in’ the projection. The false self ‘does’ nothing and follows – usually kicking and screaming, a predestined ‘stage-play’ written from the script of the conditioning it came into the dream with.
The endless frustrations [Divine Discontent] of living in the delusion of separation … that the slumbering God-SELF experiences while IT dreams … ensure that IT will eventually turn within and thereby return to the full Awareness of Who IT Really Is.
