What It Means to Live in a Spiritual Universe

I spent part of yesterday afternoon meditating in a park . I experienced all as Love and all as me.

Once you realise that there is only One Spirit/Love, your experience of the world changes. The best way to describe it is by a demonstration.

As I walked home there was a sudden gust of wind and I ended up with grit in my eye. My eye stung. My first reaction was to deny the cause, that there was nothing in my eye. It didn't work, my eye still stung. Of course, it's not grit, it's a Love grit! Love is formless. The grit dissolved into formless Love and felt like nothing.

It is written in the scriptures,

"The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted." (Psalm 46: 6)
I see the heathen and kingdoms moving as the belief that the universe has a material, emotional or mental cause. The "voice" is the realisation that the Universe is Spirit/Love. To be Spirit and continue to experience yourself as Spirit, the Psalmist tells us:

"Be still, and know that I am God." (Psalm 46: 10)
It is in stillness, in silence that one experiences that there is only One Love/Spirit in all.

Once one realises that Love is all there is, the Universe is transformed into the formless. A wall that used to be hard when you bang your head against it is now soft. A grit that is hard on the eye dissolves into nothing. Has the universe disappeared? Yes and No. Yes the material, emotional and mental cause universe has disappeared; but the universe still remains but is now experienced as spiritual.

Think of what the implications are when one experiences the universe as spiritual. What would happen if all the things generally agreed to be evil, such as guns and missiles, were experienced as Spirit? Can bullets injure you if you no longer perceive bullets as matter? Reminds me of a story I read in David Icke’s book:

"When King Louis XIV of France sought to purge the Huguenots in the 1600s, his death squads found a group known as the Camisards in the Cevennes Valley who simply would not die under any circumstances. Michael Talbot writes:
'In an official report sent to Rome, one of the persecutors, a prior named Abbe du Chayla complained that no matter what he did, he could not succeed in harming the Camisards. When he ordered them shot, the musket balls would be found flattened between their clothing and their skin. When he closed their hands upon burning coals, they were not harmed, and when he wrapped them head to toe in cotton soaked with oil and set them on fire, they did not burn.'" (Tales from the Time Loop, by David Icke, page 366)
It makes perfect sense to me that the persecutors, who perceived reality as dual, good versus evil, couldn't kill the Camisards. The Camisards must have realised that the universe is Spirit/Love and that they are Spirit. Can Love be what it is not? Realising the universe as Spirit opens up untold possibilities.

To live in a spiritual universe one doesn't need to "die", ascend or teleport to another realm, one only needs to realise that the universe is spiritual and observe as the spiritual universe unveils itself.

"Know what is in thy sight, and what is hidden from thee will be revealed to thee. For there is nothing hidden which will not be manifest.” (The Gospel of Thomas)
All is Spirit.

I am Spirit,
