There exists a hell of an excellent universe next door; let’s go
The new movie “Inception” is brilliant in a number of ways. First, the cinematography is gorgeous, the special effects, highly impressive and the plotline, the plotline is a wild-a lucid dream inside a lucid dream within… well, to another degree-so that poor Mal, (Marion Cotillard), Cobb’s, (Leonardo DiCaprio) wife- or rather the projection of his deceased wife, doesn’t know anymore which the reality is true, and believes an encounter with death will wake her up. Cobb posseses an merely a slightly stronger grip on which dream they’re in and for just how long, and the cast of characters who elect to be involved in the shared dreaming do it splendidly even as we admire their acuity to remain on mission. Needless to say, this seems all too fantabulous to trust, and although the film is breathtaking to view, and a motion fan, I am not…
I’ll yield to a “magical” premise, and this film delivers play for the imagination hook, line, and sinker in all that is magical about our minds, our intentions, our wills. Still, that’s not why it engaged me so intensely. I kept having this vibey thrill that writer/director Christopher Nolan could have downloaded from the collective unconscious of contemporary humanity in this very day and age, time and place, the challenge that we’re all facing, that is, to realize that so-called “reality” is indeed not real acim podcast. That people create it and can transform it.
As a course in miracles fan-addict (no pun intended), I subscribe to the daily task of looking straight into the face area of television, into the tragedies that spread and leak and draw us into instinctual empathy, rage and hand-wringing all over the planet, and remind myself that most this is a shared dream. Yes, even the physical pain might be a phantom limb.
If we are to trust the course, we are still in Eden only we look out of the glass darkly. We’ve wear blinders and loped in to the desert thinking ourselves cast out. And lo, that is what we experience, what we see around us. Our collective doom-trained minds heavy with a pang of free-floating guilt we can’t name-do what any non-lucid dreamer does-create from the projection. We see the events of the world like they certainly were outside our personal egos when creating something better is all a matter of a shift in perspective. And for most of us longtime seekers who have discovered our answers in alchemy and ancient texts, obscure poetry, (Rumi, Lao Tsu, Blake, Gibran ) in addition to occult secrets and quantum science, that shift is occurring.
Among the primary lessons of a course in miracles instructs us “There is no world.” In the same way Cobb and Mal experience reality in the deep netherworlds of these subconscious minds, we are alarmed at each turn by our own projections. “Inception” could be the nifty trick of implanting a notion within an unconscious dreamer’s mind that the dreamer will carry into reality. In the film, the dream-schemers are well aware that when they don’t lucidly perform the steps of these preconceived agenda, they will be stalked and pummeled by the images their fear and anger have evoked. Indeed Cobb’s shadowy figure, his Jungian dark anima, Mal, seeks to down him in her own black hole and she works as any clever, ego-alien shadow worth her salt, to control him to trust what she believes is real.
So here we are, Don Quixotes all, swaying with our swords out prepared to strike at the false extensions of our own repressed emotion. Welcome to the dream world. We’ve journeyed definately not our source, forget that life is a game, and have, with our own source-power made this video so real we need an amazing glitch in the matrix to shake us free.
Yet like The Force Himself or Herself, (most likely Itself) we are geniuses all. We’re various different areas of God. Fallen, deluded, confused, undoubtedly, but our true Source isn’t concerned that people blame him. We made this messy world whenever we thought we would step out of Eden. Adam fell asleep, it says in Genesis. It doesn’t say he woke up.Read More
