Multidimensional Dress Rehearsal

We are all actors dressed in thoughts and emotions. As actors, we perform a specific role. That role is an expression of the soul. In fact, the soul is performing along with us. Being human is our stage and the various soul-filled actors that perform on this stage at any particular moment act in various ways in order to feel the results of their unique thoughts and emotions. This human stage is like an off-Broadway play. The actors are practicing for a spot on Broadway. The Broadway we seek is different for each actor. The events that happen on our human stage are not things that happen to us. They are materialized experiences created by us. These experiences are formed by our individual expectations, perceptions, and beliefs.

Thoughts and emotions create beliefs if we focus on them long enough. Our human experience is an epic drama filled with various beliefs that can cause conflicts. How we handle those conflicts is the plot of the drama. We produce the plot, and our role is to feel how we control the emotions and thoughts that created the beliefs that caused the conflicts. Each plot is the essence of the drama, but not all plots are the same. Each plot and actor are more than the sum of all the plots and actors.

The human stage has a main drama going on, but at the same time, there are individual dramas taking place that create the experiences that each soul-filled actor needs to experience. We don’t believe we create these individual dramas on our own, so we create a man-like God that fills those shoes. We don’t believe that this man-like God is within all of us, and that is cause for conflict.

As actors, we believe we all must conform to the mass drama in order to achieve the blessing of the man-like God that has already blessed our drama. The soul knows the value of conformity as well as separatism. Those judgments are ego generated beliefs. But the actors believe those beliefs are the characteristics of a man-like God not the ego. This separation of thoughts and emotions is the basis for this dress rehearsal and learning process. The opportunity to experience and sense this man-like God within us lies in our ability to understand what we create. When we do, we can accept our human stage as a multidimensional dress rehearsal where all beliefs contain elements of truth, and all truths contain elements of our mass drama.

Reverence For Life

Despair and a lack of enthusiasm are our biological foes. Social conditions, economic issues, political upheavals and even religious teachings that foster these mental states create a biological retaliation within us. They act like a war in our natural setting. Destructive energy erupts within us, and that energy travels through our cells and wreaks havoc on our well-being.

Our physical world is a product of certain aspects of consciousness that want to express challenges through materialization. Those challenges are manifested in wars, bombings, religious conflicts and other acts of war. War and other forms of destruction are self-expressions of an innate play where the actors get to express their challenges in material stages. The actors are so immersed in their roles in this play they forget that they wrote, and constructed the sets. They lose sight of the fact that they are acting. If they did realize they created their intense hatred, the urgency to solve the challenges would dissolve. Many of the people that want to act in these destructive plays choose to be born into certain ethnic groups as well as in certain countries.

We are still learning the importance of thought, and self-responsibility. The concept of killing has been misrepresented. Hate is killing. Separation is a form of killing and the despair and apathy we have toward the acts that conflict with our idea of truth is killing. The sacredness of life is rooted in self-responsibility. Reverence for life and our thoughts are crucial components in stopping the destruction we create.

The permissiveness of killing is the underlying cause of this destruction. If we allow killing for religion, justice, and revenge, we allow the killing of all living things. Reverence for all life gives us the ability to understand that the people that create these destructive plays choose a life of challenges for reasons of compensation.

In order to understand these reason of compensation, we have to understand the nature of the soul. The nature of the soul is not taught. The nature of the soul is pure consciousness. The soul experiences value fulfillment in a plethora of ways and through several aspects of its pure consciousness.
