A Course In Miracles says; what we can see with our eyes, our physical side, is not real, thus it does not exist. The real part of us, according to Rumi, is hidden in plain sight.

As we grow up learning to ignore the hidden and real part of ourselves, we basically end up living in the dark about who we are.
One way of dealing with this darkness/ignorance, is to fight it by trying to control and affect things outside of ourselves. This is as effective and satisfying as fighting darkness with a baseball bat.

The only way to fight darkness is to turn on the light. Turning on the light of awareness is bringing yourself out of darkness about who you are and what you are capable of creating. Thus no need to project yourself out, to affect and control things outside of yourself and thus, no need for things outside of you to be a certain way. Once you say hello to the real part of you, the part that cannot be threatened, you say hello to the peace of God. Now there is no fear. There is nothing but love. There is no dependency on what Rumi calls; how and why things are the way they are.

There is a part of you that was created by The Creator at her image, the part of you that creates constantly. And there is a part of you that constantly experiences what you create and reports back to you with the language of emotions.
Learn to own your creator space and listen to your physical body’s communication and step into fearlessness. Fearlessness breeds gentleness.
May you have a bright, loving and gentle day.
So be it. Amen
