The Reason You Are Here
I’ve been to the “other side” at least eight times. I can answer any of the “big questions” — and indeed any question you choose to put to me. I squarely invite you to do so.
Every time I have come back, I have arrived within the same duality-reality you live in. Every time. It’s like going on vacation: when you come back, everything is still waiting for you, exactly as you left it. You still have to get up, you still have to go to work.
The difference is, when you’ve seen the alternative, you now know why you’re here.
You are here for one reason only: to experience sensate reality.
You are supposed to get up, and feel the air on your skin. You are supposed to know you have to go to work, and to feel that dip in your stomach. You are supposed to experience every sensation associated with every thought of everything you are about to experience that day. You are supposed to taste your lunch in dizzying three dimensions. You are supposed to see almost colour while doing so.
You are supposed to have a self. You are supposed to indulge that self in gratifying highs and demoralizing lows. You are supposed to feel everything that life deals you, in your gut. Everything you are scared of is supposed to be beautiful. Everything you love, you are supposed to love in that moment and that moment only, and to cherish that moment. You are supposed to be attached. You are supposed to cling. You are supposed to fall to the ground and thank reality for giving you the chance to feel what just happened in every organ of your body.
There is a self. It is permanent. And it does satisfy. It is you, and it is now. Be it. Become it. Be it more. And when you’re confused, be confused.
If you can just be everything you’re experiencing right now, you’re already enlightened. Enlightenment is a birthright. You have it. Be it.
