If you listen carefully to your conversations and those of others, together with your thoughts, you can realize that from a multidimensional perspective they are anesthetic processes. They are designed to maintain a trance state of separation between yourself and the whole, depriving you of your sense of communion and unity with the whole existence.
Our ordinary identity, together with all related activities, such as work, recreation and socialization are mainly drugs and anesthetics aimed at partially or totally abolishing sensitivity to any reality existing beyond.
Anesthesia, from the Greek “anaisthesìa”, composed of the privative “an” and “àisthesi” (sensation), is a deprivation of sensation.
Anesthesia of the soul is the deprivation of awareness of any reality that exists beyond our separate perception.
Our sense of identity and our entire ordinary life is the consequence of the effects of anesthesia. Anesthesia may be partial or total, so depending on the case we may be able to experience occasional glimpses of our multidimensional nature or nothing at all.
No matter how many anesthetics we use or how much we increase the dosage, sooner or later the time comes when their effect ends. Then we become aware of the reality that underlies anesthesia.
What dwells beyond anesthesia is the true meaning of life, the denied part of who you are, what you are destined to come to terms with sooner or later.
At certain moments in life there are temporary suspensions of anesthesia. For our ordinary identity these can be horrible moments, whereas for your multidimensional nature they are the portals of liberation.
What in the end I mean to say here is that if you are very confused, upset or in pain from time to time, this does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with you. Perhaps you are just feeling what actually exists, and the reason why you are aware of it is due to the fact that the anesthetic has failed.
The pain is the result of our addiction to the anesthesia of separation, of the temporary abstinence from its chronic and compulsive use, of the traumatic confrontation with the reality that exists beyond the illusion of who you think you are.
Pain is a boundary between two realities: one based on separation and one based on unity. On the one hand your separate identity eagerly holds you back through suffering and continues to seduce you with its anesthetics, leading you to hang out with drug addicts and consensual drug dealers, on the other hand your alternative identity is ready to welcome you and guide you into a space of maximum ecstasy.
The border between the two realities is very tenuous. If you find yourself in a space of crisis and pain you are right on the border and immediately on the other side there is joy and ecstasy, perhaps …
