Erich: Look around the room for a second and see who's here. This is an advanced group. This is what an advanced group looks like. You know what I mean? Young and old, etc.

And what does the advanced group need to learn? (laughs)

The same thing as everyone else, but really, really, really.

With Love and Pranams,
Erich

Erich: The predicament we find ourselves in is not just an illusion. We are in the middle of Ultimate Reality, misperceiving it, and having a weird experience. But, we are in the middle of Ultimate Reality.

You are doing something when you look at somebody. You are doing something when you look at anything. Linger on things a little bit more than usual and let the window of your mind clarify, so that right here, where it seemed like we were in a stupid mortal world, you start seeing the very same thing in a different light, literally...

Erich: All the guided human teaching, remember, is about helping you get to the place where you can do Freeform.

Freeform does not mean that you abandon prescribed routines. It means that you give yourself permission to do exactly what you feel like doing. When I first started getting the hang of Freeform, I thought it meant that you ditch prescribed routines. In fact, that is what I was recommending to everybody. It just seemed like, “Yes, of course. Duh.” But, prescribed routines are really helpful is my understanding at the moment.

Learn the pattern. Learn the routine. Do it. Do it. Do it. Do it. But then, remember, what you are really learning is how to be more intuitive. As you "get into it" more and more, the energy itself will begin to move you out of the prescribed nature of the pattern.

The World Is Not An Illusion, Part 2

The world is not an illusion.

You are not in a temporary world on the way to somewhere better.

That's the illusion.

The insight is that we are in the middle of Ultimate Reality, already. Not that you couldn't be having a better experience. But, there is no place else you could be. There is nothing else happening except Reality, and wherever you are will be somewhere in the middle of The Kingdom.

But, you can have a mistaken assessment. You can have a deluded, illusory understanding. That is all that's happening. But, just that little “all that's happening” makes a big difference in terms of the experience you will find yourself having.

Erich: The world is NOT an illusion.

If you think it is, you will spend your time thinking you are wasting your time with an illusory event.

Man, that's a bummer.

It is really important to get beyond thinking that the world itself is an illusion and that you are in a temporary world on the way to somewhere better.

That was my mindset for the longest time.

Much of the world's spiritual literature reads, “The world is an illusion” and "You are not the body." You start to believe it the longer you hear it. But then, it really does put a damper on your experience. And I don't think it's true.

The world is really Real!

The Event we are in the middle of is THE ULTIMATE.

The new understanding is, "There is no place else you could be!"
