Here is the journey, laid out for your perusal, plain and simple.
Step one: Realize there is a you in the universe,
Step two: Realize there is a universe in you.
Step three: Realize there is no universe.
Step four: Realize the is no you.
Step five: Realize that Infinity/Truth is, and due to it's unimaginable (infinite) structure...
Step six: Realize you can't know it, only know it ''is'' and it follows that...
Step seven: Everything has already happened, and
Step eight: Nothing ever happened.
Step nine: Realize that these step cannot be logically arrived at by a mind, primarily because they hinge on infinity and mind cannot grasp that, no matter what mathematical theoreticians might tell you. In case you haven't go it by now, there isn't a mind anyways.
Step ten: Go out and have a beer, some cheese cake, a nice flan or a cappuccino, kiss the next person you see in the dream and don't be surprised if you laugh you ass off. The Gods aren't crazy, they just have a hell of a sense of humor, and you are the punch line.
Am I setting you up to experience these things... yes, I am, but I have experienced this journey, and, sans belief, faith, hope or any other story, I simply ''know'' it at an inexplicable level. If I can point and assist one more dreamer to know it, my job is done. You, the reader of this, are that ''one more dreamer''. You are home, and as Rumi wrote, knocking on the door from inside the house.
In the alternative, you can just skip to Step ten...
Love ya, Jed.
