This is easy to do but it’s still unwise. You are not crazy. That’s just how you’re viewing life. Think of it like a mirror ball in a disco lounge. The light of the universe comes from every direction and “we” each merely reflect back one aspect of that infinite unity. So we see our lives as the shafts of light hitting the surfaces of the world when in fact we are the mirror itself. And while we may at times use our thinking to tell ourselves stories where we feel isolated and alone and crazy (because to us our shafts of light seem so separate and distinct from each other), in reality we are forever connected. We are all a part of the same sphere of existence—we are all merely reflecting the universe’s light, and in that enlightened view of reality there is nothing for you to do but dance. Enjoy.
Note: Everyone who posts or shares a quote does so with the very best of intentions. That said, I have created the series of Other Perspectives blog posts in an effort to prevent some of these ideas from entering into people’s consciousness unchallenged. These quotes range from silly to dangerous and—while I intend no offense to their creators—I do use these rebuttals to help define and delineate the larger message I’m attempting to convey in my own work. I do hope you find them helpful in your pursuit of both psychological and spiritual health.
Following a serious childhood brain injury Scott McPherson unwittingly spent his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and the self. This made him as strange to others as they were to him. Seeing the self-harm people created with their own overthinking, Scott dedicated part of his life to helping others live with greater awareness. He is currently a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB, where he finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
