The interplay between chemistry and emotion in the human body / experience can be confusing and limiting, we know. In the midst of wanting to feel loved and cherished, at the precise time when you forget that you already are Love and Cherishing, of course it can seem like the “only way out” of pain, sadness, and suffering is through chemistry — through changing the chemical balance of the physical body by introducing endorphins or other altering compounds.
Yet this is the very dimension where you have volunteered to experience re-membering that you are none other than expression of the Divine — to demonstrate to other seemingly separate souls what it looks like to surrender seeming “security” in 3-D… Security which cannot ever be secured in the temporary, 3-D expression of Reality, mind you.
The boundless energy of youth; the house and mortgage; the family… no matter how emotionally attached to these concepts you may feel, they follow the transitory nature of being. They are illusion. (They have a beginning, middle, and an end. Time-bound.)
There is no “other”. There is only One. And you are it. In this moment. And everything you see is a reflection of your own brilliance. To you it may seem to be in disguise, but we assure you — look deeply and you will see that you are I AM. Time reveals itself to be illusion, and collapses. The human body, with its limited perception, is laid aside, as are all human dreams, which are revealed to be tiny in comparison to the brilliance of the Source of Love — the I AM, which is no other than you!
The very idea of achieving “security” on your plane is laughable, in the sense that selfishness leads to despair. The only “security” in your 3-D world is acknowledgement of the transitory nature of 3-D existence, and dedication to a life of service to a Higher Good.
Only through sacrifice of the ego comes recognition of eternal life. Since eternal life is all there is, “you” can never lose “it.” But even these terms, in this limited human language, suggest separation between subject and object — “you” and “eternal life.”
This is all part of the beauty of the expression of the I AM — the Universe dancing for the joy of dancing. Surrender your fear and dance!
