"Nothing rests; everything moves; everything vibrates" - The Kabalion



Many people want to resist the idea that the universe is illusionary. We see, hear, smell, touch, and taste what we believe is real all around us, don't we? The universe is viewed through these five human senses simply because we are human.

When you pick up a heavy stone, notice it has a weight to it, it feels solid and dense, smooth perhaps, or it might even feel cool or warm to the touch, depending upon where it had been lying around, such as in the cool shade or out in the hot sunlight. Your brain perceives the stone as a very real object, a form of matter. But, think of your hands that hold the form. They're just another form of matter, just as your human brain is.

The scientific truth is that all matter is vibrating, even the stone you were holding. All matter not only vibrates, it is ever-changing, and it is transitory, including your human body. The body you are inhabiting seems real, and yet it is a mirage.

Why do we call it a mirage? Why is it an illusion? The truth is that every atom in your body, and every atom in everything is composed of more than 99.999% empty space, or quantum space. That sounds scary, empty and cold, but it's not. This wonderful, miraculous space that is within every atom is full of Intelligence, or Spirit. This Intelligence connects everything in the universe like an invisible web.

The physicist Sir James Jeans once said, "When an electron vibrates, the universe shakes." It takes only one teeny tiny flicker of any activity in any of your cells to go across the entire quantum field. One little brain cell vibrates and moves across everything that exists!

Humans perceive that our material earth plane is real, and as far as we are concerned, we must live and act as if all matter is real. There is nothing to fear, though, when we accept the fact that what seems to be real is always changing, always transitory. As Eckhart Tolle has said, "even the sun will die". When you know that who you are is Spirit manifesting itself in a seemingly physical body, you will know that Spirit, or the great Infinite Mind, holds us firmly. Own this knowledge, and nothing will feel threatening to you ever.

Why must everything be an illusion? Will this illusionary universe we live in ever seem not real to us? The Kybalion (translated by Doreen Virtue, Ph.D.)has an answer to these questions: "Only when The All finally withdraws us into itself will the illusion actually vanish.

I didn't realize The Kybalion was becoming mainstream. Glad to see it, though. It's time the secrets aren't secret anymore.

First of all, (I think) we don't have to fear being crucified or burned at the stake for our beliefs anymore. (Although still right now in this time it is very possible to be verbally crucified by many today not ready for the esoteric truths!)

Secondly, as we evolve, I think more and more people are becoming ready.

I like you're inclusion of "burned at the stake", Sophia

I was wanting to add something as it relates to the image you used in this post. A few years ago I was looking at the similarities between images of networks of neurons and images of the universe, as well as images of a mapping of the Internet. The similarities were remarkable. It was like seeing a smaller scale brain - the human, a medium scale brain - the global Internet, and a large (infinite) scale brain - the universe.

"The ALL is Mind; The Universe is Mental." ~The Kybalion

NeuronsThe InternetAnd then of course the universe which you've provided an image of.

oops.... there are links to two images there, even though it looks like one link.

Hi Doreen - Interestingly enough, in the genealogy of my family there was a woman who was thrown in jail for one year, accused of being a witch in Salem.

Could not the "All drawing us into itself" be an illusion also?

Just a thought to contemplate.

Yes, in a sense, "the All" is an illusion because we use words to describe It or "point to it"; we cannot "know" the formless dimension with our "concepts" or mind thoughts. That is the paradox. All "knowing" is paradoxical.
