I am, you are, we are all IT – as droplets are to the ocean or sunbeams to sunlight.
As IT, we, individually and collectively, imagined and imagine what we perceive to be reality. We exercised our creative imagination.
Hence, the statement that we are “Co-creators with God”.
In this fantasy we play out our fantastic experiences and lessons, in lifetime after lifetime on the treadmill of the fruitless cycle of birth and death, in imaginary bodies, until we relearn our real status and end this self-imposed, tedious cycle. We then find the immeasurable tranquility of our pristine state.
