For the last 2 years, I have been experiencing more and more what William Shakespeare meant when he wrote :
“All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women are merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts.”
The Spirit that is us- the us that is eternal, never dying- is the real us. And that part, with feelings and intelligence, knows and recognizes truth and cannot be swayed by false concepts- is the part where the real things are happening.
It is backstage. In another place (realm even), where we are experiencing, growing, loving, giving, sharing and perfecting- interacting with each other on a spiritual level. Backstage is more real than the parts we play on the stage. That is the real us. No costumes, no lines, no timed entrances and exits, no cues. Backstage is constant.
The stage is where we choose to play day to day. Are we a banker, a musician, an accountant, a dancer? And more largely how do we choose to view circumstance? What opinions do we choose to adhere to? What beliefs do we carry around with us? Or what IDENTITY do we CHOOSE?
We can choose to play any part on the stage. We can make the scenes, the drama, the finale WHATEVER WE WANT.
“I CAN BE WHAT I WILL TO BE.“- is reaching me at a level of being far beyond a goal. It is reaching me at my very purpose of being here on this stage, right now. My grand purpose here on earth as a divine creation of God.
Everyday I am seeing, experiencing, touching, feeling a tiny piece of that. Making little tears in this 3 dimensional experience and seeing into the INFINITE.
