Beyond This Reality

When I travel on planes, stand in long customs queues at airports and observe humanity just as they are without pretense (some in their track pants for comfort) – I notice something important. They are all me! We are all the same being!

It’s not something I think about. I get spooked by it!

This feeling catches me by surprise!

And I find it really weird!


Great spiritual masters teach us that we are all one – that Unity Consciousness is the goal to strive for. That when one has achieved this state (that all is One), we have achieved a promised result of years of spiritual practice.

We all know the THEORY of Quantum Physics that in the blueprint of life all is energy, light waves flickering behind solid physical form.

So how does a person AWAKEN to KNOWING they are in a temporary dream state – that most call physical reality?


While in New Zealand recently I saw a split second moment on television, a car advertisement so wisely using the statement “Time Does Not Exist”…. The ad agency was evoking our longing to de-stress, drop into a moment of timelessness…

For some reason I ‘caught’ the ULTIMATE IRREVOCABLE TRUTH of this statement. It lobbed into my being like a skyrocket. And it has stayed with me until now as that truth. That ‘time’ actually DOES not exist. We all know this! And – we forget and live as though it does exist.


Again, a profound moment of awakening to the reality that this is a dream. That our thinking minds constantly create a narrative that hypnotizes us into alternative mental ‘streams’ – where we become absorbed. We spend most of our time caught in these thought streams. And therefore we presume they are reality.

I have learned that each thought expands its own underlying feeling. Thoughts magnify feeling… and so we are ‘driven’ towards goals, aspirations, external results by these thought/feeling combinations and ongoing repetitive ‘loops’.


Yet behind each CURRENT thought stream are UNLIMITED options of other perceptions, feelings and awareness - if we decided to pause, step back from our thoughts – and open to wider knowing.

We could then decide to jump off (at any time) our CURRENT thought stream – and choose a different one. We could choose a different feeling/thought stream!

And our LIFE would unfold differently – because of that.

I’m sure you can see now,  that ‘reality’ actually, is only in the present moment, as we are making these moment by moment decisions on which thought stream we are attending to!

There is no future or past. Both are just thoughts.


Four decades ago I remember having just been initiated into a profound system of meditation. It was late at night and I was returning from the ceremony where I had been connected, literally, to primordial life force inside of me.

It had captured me, absorbed me into itself. I had allowed myself to be taken into its infinite depths, and I swum like a fish freed finally into the ocean.

As I walked along the street, I became entranced by the gentle movement of leaves on a tree, glistening in the light of a streetlamp.

In that moment I realized I had received the ultimate gift – of freedom from my thinking mind.

I noticed I was sitting inside myself in deep stillness, BEHIND my thinking mind. It no longer was controlling, steering, ‘me’.


And this has been my journey so far, listening, learning, being absorbed over and over again (as we all do) by my thought streams, learning about multi-dimensionality, the spirit worlds behind physicality, their politics (!) and their agendas.

I have become aware of myself as a learner, as a ‘knower’, as a being that in truth represents MANY higher layers of my own spirit self here in this ‘dream’.

So awakening to understanding ever deeper that this reality IS in fact a dream is a privilege, an honor, and a process of knowing at any moment it can change! If I want it to. I can find a different thought/feeling stream – or I can invite spirit helpers to help me change it.

Learning how to awaken to a wider reality BEHIND this dream – is the journey.
