Being alive

Be not deceived by the external realities that distract us from our true Self. Our inward reality is the true Self of God Self. The awakening of the "I AM" presence of God is our home coming into truth. In stillness and self emptying (dissolving of ego illusions) we enter the art of "being" (this is being alive).

“Everyone of us is shadowed by an illusory person: a false self..We are not very good at recognizing illusions, least of all the ones we cherish about ourselves. (34) Contemplation is not and cannot be a function of this external self. There is an irreducible opposition between the deep transcendent self that awakens only in contemplation, and the superficial, external self which we commonly identify with the first person singular.(7) Our reality, our true self, is hidden in what appears to us to be nothingness....We can rise above this unreality and recover our hidden reality....(281) God Himself begins to live in me not only as my Creator but as my other and true self. (41)”
