The reality exists within you

The reality exists within you So we normally divide things up because separation is part of our nature. We always divide things up. This glass is separate from me. And you are separate from her. Or whatever the case might be, I am separate from that video camera. And because of the sense of separation, you also create the separation from your little self‑‑separated from the big self, which is you.

And what is the big self? The reality which exists within you. That is the big self. Indefinable. Incomparable. Beyond all words. Indefinable, but experiencable.

Now if you can regard life to be an experience itself, existing by itself, you will at least come a little way nearer the truth of yourself. That is knowing, to repeat again, that I exist. And when you can really say‑‑not the little ego that talks and lot of nonsense. It is always talking a lot of gibberish or gibbering around. But when you say «I exist,» you know the meaning of yourself, of that eternal «I,» which is you and none else. Nothing else in this universe exists, only you exist. And within saying that «I exist,» I find that the entire universe exists in me. No separation. So the universe is not there. For if the universe was there, I would be nowhere. But because I bring the universe within myself, I can truly stand up and say, «I exist.» For I am divinity itself, and nothing else can exist except divinity itself.

And yet people put on labels. They call Him a he or some other religionist might call that force a she. I just call it It. It exists. What did Descartes say again? I asked you to remind me the other day. «I think, therefore, I am.» The bloody fool. If he was here, I would shoot him. I think, therefore, I am. Who thinks, what thinks, and what thought could give you the meaning that I am what I am. You see how wrong Descartes was. You could never think that you are; but you are, therefore, you think. The other way around.
