The world is a dream made up by the sleeping mind that feels guilty because it thinks it has separated from God. The attraction to certain figures (people) in the dream is the mind saying it is not satisfied with wholeness and is calling up some aspect of the past, which is the masked attraction to guilt. The ego is behind the secret we want to expose. The alternative is a new purpose. Our strength is to be totally present in the presence of God.
The substitute for love is believing that we will never be able to return to the Love of God so we have to settle for special love/hate relationships. All of the pursuits for outcome is a distraction away from true bliss which is the Holy Instant or the stillness within. The world was made as a distraction from true bliss. I allow myself to accept the present moment! We are the light of the world!
