Somewhat of a Simulation

Maybe this reality we're living in is a mind projection that manifests as matter and all we have to do is use to it to transcend any object that mirrors our shadow.


I wrote the above statement while writing another piece of prose and thought it might be worth exploring on its own.


In a dream, the dreamed character interacts with the surrounding environment and every moment of being in this dream is real, there's no doubt whatsoever.


Then the dreamer wakes up in this dimension and feels that this reality is real, again, with no doubt whatsoever.


After a few years of meditation, this feeling starts to brew within and one begins to question the realness of the waking state. This feeling says, there is more to reality, it can't just be a bunch of random objects interacting with each other.


One day, a realization, out of nowhere, appears within one's consciousness, or better said, consciousness reveals itself to itself as the one and only reality. In other words, a deep silence or ego death creates enough space for consciousness to realize itself, and one understands that consciousness is the womb of creation.


A shift in perspective takes place, and one realizes that the waking state was actually a dream, or simulation. Lets use the word simulation as there's more room to play with it.


So if we were to look at the world today, we'd notice that the fear, hate and anger that's happening in the world is out of control, and something is off. Watch the news for an hour and you'd be left thinking this can't be real, egos locking horns all day.


Now if this is a simulation, there's a game to be played, and this is where the first sentence comes into play.


Maybe this reality we're living in is a mind projection that manifests as matter and all we have to do is use to it to transcend any object that mirrors our shadow.


If we were to look at reality in this way, we'd live life as if the whole thing is some kind of simulation or video game. In this video game, anything outside the player is an object, and this object is also a mirror that sheds light on the players ego or shadow.


When analyzing relationships, we'd realize that each relationship is actually the shadow mirroring itself. Each judgement that's directed towards any movement is the shadow mirroring itself. To a certain extent, the judgement I place on you is actually a distortion that resides within me.


And this is where the game gets interesting.


Instead of resisting life and its objects (people, activities etc), we begin to embrace it because the only way to win this game is to embrace its movements (objects). And by embracing that which causes resistance, we purify and grow.


The end goal of the game is to purify the shadow until the mirror (life) has nothing to reflect back.


Once the mirror reflects nothing back, the simulation ends, and reality begins.


Reality, when it's real, is whole. There can't be any resistance as there is no one to resist.


The shadow has dissolved, and the mirror has done its job.


The simulation comes to an end.
