The Illusion of Individuality

Where does this sense of individuality come from? We see ourselves as having distinctly separate bodies existing in space and time. This physically sensorial and limited observation conditions us until it becomes perception. When we perceive ourselves as individuals we come to own things, we are stolen from, insulted, we fear, we hate and we suffer.

Consciousness Expansion

I like to think of my consciousness as a circle drawn on a piece of paper. Within the circle is all the knowledge, understanding about life and existence and everything that I have experienced and come to accept as possible, real and normal within my daily life. A few years ago the circle of my consciousness was smaller than it is today. This is as it should be.
