MIND SET: You are the centre

Source: The Times of India

The entire universe is a projection of consciousness. We experience the universe as a projection through us because each of us is a centre of consciousness. Therefore we are all centres of the universe. There really is no here or there because everything is at one point where consciousness is. We all do not exist in different places but are all present at one point. The reality of here and there is all created and experienced within the singularity of consciousness itself. Where you are is the centre of the universe.

Consciousness is the dimensionless programme that simulates dimensions. It is the omnipresent dot that creates the illusion of everywhere when there is nowhere but here and now. There is only one true place consciousness exist in and that is here. There is only one true time where consciousness exists in and that is now. Everything else that is experienced as there and then is only a simulation that is experienced from here and now. When you think of a time and place, you instantly travel there mentally.

In fact you do not really travel at all. The world around you shifts as your external environment and the things in it changes into the new one that you think of. It is because it is all a simulation. You never really move at all but it is everything else that moves. The centre of anything never moves and therefore the whole world revolves around you. The physical world itself is also a simulation of consciousness. It is a simulation that you are walking and traveling from one place to another or moving along through time.

When you take a plane to another country, which you last visited ten years ago, your change in experience is really a change in the simulation of reality. The simulated image of the city has changed as some buildings have been removed and new ones have appeared. The simulated images of the people you met before has also changed as the consciousness programme reflects the effects of how people are effected by time.

We think that no one is the centre of the universe because everyone cannot be the centre at the same time. That is because we perceive consciousness to be separate from it. Actually consciousness is projected from where you are. It only exists at one place and one time and that is where you are. You are consciousness itself and whichever point of view you are experiencing at any giving point of time and place, everything else around you is a projection from you. You are more than just the particular person that you are. You are the entire universe itself.

The reason why you perceive reality from a particular point of time and space, and as a particular person is because you are consciousness individuated into a single point of view for the purpose of experiencing everything else from that point of view.

Think of a computer programme that runs a simulated game world where all characters are interacting with each other. It is all really just one programme cycling between each character so fast that it seems as if all characters are being run simultaneously when they are actually being run one at a time. It is the activity of consciousness playing every single role in the universe that makes it seem as though there're separate programmes running when it’s really one programme running everything in turns at infinite speed.

The reason why consciousness runs at infinite speed is because it is not confined to the boundaries of time at all. Time is only a simulated concept that is created by consciousness to be experienced by consciousness. Imagine playing a particular character and filming yourself, and then reversing the film and playing a different character. Superimpose the film of the first character with the second and you’ll get the effect of two characters in one film. That is how two of you exist at the same time.

But consciousness doesn’t really have to take turns experiencing it from several points of view. It splits itself into many individuated versions of itself so as to experience all those points of view simultaneously. All those individuated versions are simply different parts of that one consciousness. When you shift your perspective from one point of view to another, you are shifting the center of the universe from one point to another. The centre is everywhere yet nowhere according to how you see it.

So to experience your reality, realise that where you are is the centre of all that is occurring. This is what it means to be centred. When you think someone, something or somewhere else is the centre of what’s going on, you are giving your power away to the external world. Move through your world with the consciousness that you are the centre of the universe and you will find that you don’t really have to shift as people around you shift themselves.
