A series of events led my wife and me to a realtor who quickly also became a friend, and we talked about energy healing, synchronicities, and so on, all topics she has a growing interest in.
At a café earlier today, she said: “When I am with you, I feel I am out here.” (Gesturing to the space around her body.)
I laughed and said: “That’s the reality”.
WHY OUTSIDE OF THE PHYSICAL BODY?
Why did she experience herself “out there” outside of her physical body?
When the oneness we are is identified with just a part of its content, with this human self, it creates an experience for itself of not only being this human self but somehow contained within this human self.
When the oneness we are recognizes itself, then it recognizes the world – as it appears to itself – as happening within and as itself. It finds itself as oneness. It finds itself as consciousness, and the world – including this human self – happening within and as consciousness.
And in the transition between the two, it often creates experiences for itself like the one our new friend described. It still experiences itself mostly as this human self, out of habit. And it also has a sense of itself as more than that and outside of this human self. There are tastes of oneness, often as glimpses.
This helps us get used to our nature, even if our nature is not recognized very clearly at first. And it often serves as a carrot for continuing our exploration.
WHY WHEN WITH US?
Why did she experience this when she was with us?
As an infant and child, being around onenesses that take themselves to be this human self helps us mimic and learn that for ourselves. It’s what others do, so it’s what we learn to do.
And being around those who recognize their nature helps us recognize our own nature. It’s what they do, so it’s what we learn to do.
Of course, there is a lot more to this. Many things facilitate the process of recognizing our nature, even when we are around others who do. For instance, receptivity, interest, and readiness. Guidance. Active exploration. Effective pointers. And so on.
In this case, it seems she was just ready for it.
