YOU AS AN ACTOR
Everything we experience in our lives, has culminated into what we are at this present moment. All that we have seen, heard, smelled, tasted, and touched; has formed our opinion of what and who we are. But all of these things, are someone else's opionions, Truth's, Lies, etc. that we have experienced. But rememeber the most important part of all of this - we are NOT our experiences. We are the witness to the experiences. We are the one experiencing, NOT the actual experience.
For example, when you go to a movie theatre, all that is taking place on the screen is an illusion. It's an image ... a projection of what appears to be form. But if you turn around and look behind you, all that you are watching from the screen is coming from the bright white light coming from the projection booth. We are Light beings, Spirit, projecting into matter from within, to without. Our thoughts, calculate and ultimately conclude this process into a decision. Then, the decision leads to a belief. This belief can be Truth, or Deception. True, or a lie. But we have made a decision to believe it. To decide, literally means to "cut-off."
Most of us believe our lives are what we see on the movie screen (the projection), rather than the projector ... the point of origin. The Actors, the events on the screen, the screenwriters, producers, editors ... they are all YOU projection outwards into form ... as you experience YOUR Life. You are as the Actor in a play. Life is the stage. You write the script. Remember, the word "personality" comes from the Latin word "persona" which literally means "the mask of an Actor." So, your personality, is an Actor. It isn't really you.
When we take ownership of our experiences, we actually become the experience. This is an error in thinking. If you make an error, you are not the error. You are the one experiencing the error. If you accept the error as being you ... then you accept yourself as being flawed. Then we begin to feel guilt and fear. These "experiences" are our teachers in life. These experiences we witness, teach us lessons that are intended fo us to know in order to evolve and involve as better humans and to elevate to a higher level of consciousness.
When you drive your car, you are not the car but you are having an experience as the driver. You are witnessing events from within the car. In life, your body is your vehicle for the driver (your Soul / Higher Self /Spirit) to sojourn in a foreign land. We are in Earth School, and we are all students. Except that in Earth School, we are given a test first, then we learn our lessons.
Just a thought ...
