The world is a state of mind. The idea of “place,” or even space itself, is a concept in our mind. The “big bang” symbolizes the harmony of Oneness breaking into infinite individual parts with different and conflicting functions. But in truth there are no galaxies, there is no cosmos, no physical world or human bodies. Nothing of physical “matter” actually exists outside the mind that “sees” them and mind is not a physical thing. In truth, there is only Mind. When we begin to understand this all of the guilt from the seeming tragedies and terrors of our stories is seen in a different light. We begin to understand why our stories of hate have had no real effect on those who are dreaming they must suffer and finally die. Forgive your brother his misperceptions. The dreaming will not end until the dreamer realizes he only dreams.
