In one way or another, we are all jugglers, even if we find it impossible to keep two or three balls in the air. We have to juggle our two states of Being, hopefully finding a perfect balance. Unfortunately, this balance is also rare. In our most pure essence, we are immortal, metaphysical, multidimensional Beings of Love and Light focusing through, and experiencing life as, mortal, biological, three-dimensional Beings. When we lose our balance, life is simply biological and three-dimensional . . . and problematic. When we are in balance, we are aware of our true selves as Beings of Light and Love, and problems no longer besiege us.
Of course, this all begins with having an awareness of our true nature. Most people have no idea. Most people believe in death and endings, while in truth, we are continuous conscious immortality. Not a normal topic of conversation in a coffee shop, is it? How ironic; we are purely Beings of consciousness, yet so very few people are ever conscious of being conscious! Let’s call it, being aware. Very few people are ever aware of the moment. Why? Simple. You can think your way out of the moment, but you cannot think your way into it. Inner silence engages the moment, mental chatter never finds it. Psychologists consider that we think around sixty thousand thoughts during the average day! Not much time left for the moment, that place of awareness, that place of being conscious of being conscious!
So as humans, we live an illusion of who we think we are. We placate ourselves with dreams of so-called success, and then daily we chase it. We compete with the idea of being a winner . . . a very popular dream, unless we become a dreaded loser! And so we live in the fabrication of our many different illusions.
It becomes obvious that the vast majority of people live in a way that is stressful, filled with anxiety and worry. To me, it is obvious that if we continue with the charade of believing that we are nothing more than physical and mortal Beings, then we are heading nowhere . . . fast. There are no answers to life that will ever work out for us.
If we truly observed Nature, we would be able to see many of the ways of life and living that do work out. Nature does not live in a collective dream in the way we do. Each species finds the way of life that works for it. We believe in death and extinction, yet first and foremost all life is metaphysical. Let me be clear about this; the metaphysical precedes the physical. Another simple way to approach this is to accept that God created life . . . humanity created death. Death is an illusion. The loss of the physical biological body is death of the body, not the soul-person nor the soul-creature. No species has ever become extinct; they are simply withdrawn from our reality experience.[span3]So as humans, we live an illusion of who we think we are.

When we look at a tree we assume that the tree is physical, and a beautiful aspect of it is physical. But this is only a small part of the holistic picture. Everything we physically see in Nature is the physical reflection of a greater metaphysical reality. How many people seek to experience Nature beyond the physical? Very few. If you communicate with any form of Nature, it is not the physical aspect that communicates with you, it is the metaphysical. A metaphysical Nature can easily communicate with a metaphysical human because there is no separation. It could truly be described as Self to Self. Physically, we live in a world of separation. We see the physical space and distance between objects, and we assume that this is how it is. But this is only the physical world of reflection. In the greater metaphysical world of connection, all is linked by a unified field-of-energy.
In our physical world we do not relate to each other as a field-of-energy, yet we are aware of the different energies of different people. When we feel this energy we are actually connecting our field-of-energy with the other person’s field-of-energy, yet all unknowingly. Our energy-field is never separate. All humanity lives within one vast field-of-energy, yet paradoxically, we each have our individual field-of-energy within the one field-of-energy. All together as one . . . again, the unified field-of-energy! In the illusion we live our lives of separation and isolation, yet in the greater reality in which we metaphysically live this concept does not exist. And yet, such is the power that we give to our illusions that people die of loneliness, isolation, and abandonment.
Many people today cultivate their gardens along organic principles; principles that align with the greater metaphysical reality. So it works. May I suggest that we also cultivate our own lives along these same principles; principles of life and living that invoke health and wellbeing. Become open to the Being whom you truly are. Accept that you are an immortal soul with a body/ personality, rather than the false belief of being a body/personality with a soul. You do not have a soul . . . you are a soul. When you focus on the Truth of life, your life begins to change. Why? Because where you focus, energy flows. And it is your energy in your life that is flowing. A focus on Love and Truth precipitates inner change and growth in consciousness. In turn, this opens the door to a greater metaphysical reality . . . and the beautiful, infinite, You.
