Don't be so hard on yourself because you haven't yet achieved what you wanted. Don't be so hard on yourself because you can't see the whole picture yet. Don't be so hard on yourself because you need a break.
Give yourself time to realise your dreams. This world has been hard on you long enough. It has pushed you to the limit. That time is over. Show yourself compassion and empathy. Give yourself time to rest.
Pick up your pace. Go slowly if you want to. It's not a race you have to win. It is your personal journey. Look back at all the steps you've taken so far. Maybe it hasn't always been a straight line, sometimes slower, sometimes faster, but with so many lessons and experiences along the way.
See the progress and your will to move forward. You are your best companion on your journey. You are your own hero. You are the one you spend the rest of your life with. Don't be so hard on yourself, but show yourself the love you so freely share with the rest of the world. You deserve it.

What if your perceived reality is a fiction of your imagination? What if none of it existed the way you believe it does? What if reality the way we have been told is made up by the thinking mind? And what if the One consciousness dreaming it all into being, spontaneously. Pure potentiality at play! Because it can!
What if you are living in a kind of computer program, like in the movie ‘The Matrix’ with different levels or dimensions, like a dream-like experience, just with different layers of simulations.
That the only thing that was truly real was Source, all is One and all originates from and returns to that One. It is always atONEment with every aspects of its spontaneous creation. All other layers of this illustrious game are but part of that, these being the different dimensions. Awareness being aware of itself.
God Source, or all that is, was and ever will be, being the only true reality and all else, all fragmentations, separation into seeming different forms of consciousness, appearing as duality, as multiplicity and diversity, was but a dream.
A dream to imagine all the ways consciousness could experience itself as, because it can. From the highest most delightful and joyful expressions to the deepest, darkest and most painful ones, That One can imagine and create. An endless play of unlimited, ever-present consciousness.
When Neo gets shot by the agent in ‘The Matrix’ he survives. Why was that? It was because he has transcended it, the Maya, the play of light, he knew, he remembered. He woke up from the dream of forgetfulness, he remembered that he was, is and ever will be ‘The One’, and any apparent expressions of the dream have no existence by and in themselves. Knowing is knowing knowing, it’s all there is really going on.
There is no spoon because it doesn't exist, it's a 'hallucination', part of the dream. That's why later on no bullets can hit him. He absolutely knows they're not real, that all is energy and inter-connected fields of frequencies. He has learned and remembered to see things as they truly are. Yet any experience is real! Experience arising in, known by and made of the One, the One consciousness.
Also, it is one thing to understand the concept of All is One and another to actually feel it, be it, and knowing that we are all potentially The One, it's just that we've forgotten, fallen asleep to our true nature.
What we are is fractals of God Source but also all of it. If we inquire into everything we imagine we are and exists and we follow down the rabbit hole, let’s see where it leads us. The reassurance is that it will always lead us back to our true Self and Source. Time is multi-dimensional, all exists simultaneously, in truth there is no past or future. Time is a construct of the thinking mind. Space is a construct of perception.
We exist in all moments of time at once, the time we were born, the time it was our third birthday, the time we had our first kiss, the first time our heart felt broken, and the time we die in this physical body and all those other life's we're living. All is happening simultaneously. All is interconnected. And we are always One with God Source, with All That Is.
There is nothing to be afraid of or we could miss out on as WE ARE it, ALL OF IT, all of the time. The rest is illusion and the dream of forgetfulness.
In this way we then understand that truly all is always conspiring for us, nothing and no one is against us, even though from a level of the separate mind’s perspective this may seem so. There is nothing to defend, nothing to promote.
Even when for the majority of the time in our human life's we have learned through pain and trauma, instead of play and joy. That still is all part of the dream, how could it not. This is of course as simple and as complex as one makes it, infinite layers to that we call consciousness, and all is that. So there is just One here, there are no others. The sense of separation is the cause of our suffering.
At the level of perception of course there is the sense of ‘me and the other/s’, but we are solving this challenge from a higher viewpoint. It's both and as the saying goes, you can't solve a problem from the level it exists, you have to rise above it.
From there all can be seen simultaneously for what it is, each level from from a different perception. Here there is no good versus evil, there is no war besides the inner, the imagined. So when there are no others and we are everything and everyone, we have dreamt this all into being as The One, then we also have the power to dream another dream into being. We are Infinite and Eternal and there is no beginning and no end, all is NOW, HERE, and nowhere.
In fact, it is The One that is dreaming it into being, this dance of Maja. Does the entity who believes it is making any decision really exist? On who’s behalf do we make decisions? Where is that one, can you point to it? Remember, every level of this game is valid and exists in energetic form and the experience is real.
As we are One with it as well as all of Life, we can increasingly rest in being, letting choice-less awareness exactly as it is. And then we can also be aware of this energy, let transformation be, letting us dive into ever widening rings of awareness.
We remember that everything is inside of us and not out there. And we realise that the universe is in us, not we in the universe.

Humanity is going through challenging times. It can be seen as going through a door or falling into a hole. The decision to fall into the hole or go through the door is yours.
If you permanently consume mainstream information, expose yourself to extremely negative energy, feel constantly nervous, maintain a fearful and pessimistic outlook … you will fall into that hole.
If you take this opportunity to look deep within yourself, to contemplate the meaning of life … and death, to take care of yourself … and others, you will walk through the door.
Take care of your home, take care of your body, take care of your soul. Connect with your spiritual essence. When you take care of yourself, you can take care of others.
Do not underestimate the spiritual dimension of this crisis. Take the perspective of an eagle that sees everything from above, above the battle ground, with a broader vision.
There is a social demand in this crisis, but also a spiritual demand. The two go hand in hand. Without the social dimension, we fall into fanaticism, without the spiritual dimension, we fall into pessimism and futility.
You are prepared to go through this crisis, that’s what you are here for.
Grab your toolbox and use all the tools at your disposal. Connect with like-minded people, engage in conscious conversations, come together to sing, dance, light fires and have fun.
Don't feel guilty for feeling happy in these difficult times. Being sad and without energy doesn't help at all. Resilience is resilience through joy!
You have the right to be strong and positive. You need to keep a beautiful, happy and bright attitude. This has nothing to do with alienation (ignorance of the world). It is a strategy of non-compliant resistance.
When we walk through the door, we have a new view of the world because we have faced and transcended our fears and difficulties.
This is what you can do now:
Keep your serenity when you feel you’re in the storm
Contemplate and meditate daily
Make it a habit to encounter the sacred every day
Show resilience through art, joy, trust and love
