Our separation from each other is an optical illusion. –Albert Einstin
From the point of view of the Infinite Ocean of Consciousness, it’s funny that some of the water in the ocean is being “victimized” by being contained in bottles. Which is to say, some of the water doesn’t know it’s part of the ocean, because it’s being held prisoner. According to the Vedas, there are three bottles holding us, one inside another: the physical, the astral and the causal bodies. And these bottles are bumping around, trying to get more water into them, thinking they are separate. Thinking they are people.
It’s kind of hilarious that the Infinite Consciousness would do this to itself, until you realize that it’s all part of a perfect plan. For the Infinite Ocean to be able to see itself, it needs a place that’s momentarily NOT Infinite. A place, if you will, to stand on. If everything is Infinite Ocean, you need an iceberg if you want to see all that water.
So that’s what each of us, in this optical illusion, is made of: water trapped in bottles made of ice, temporarily separated in order to finally see the Ocean, and not just be it. Once the corks come out, then the real magic starts.
Then we get to See the Ocean and Be the Ocean at the same time.
