We are not born believing we are separate individuals. That is something we learn.
In fact, it takes about 2-3 years for us to accept it. Children will refer to things in the third person. They will refer to a toy such as “Jake’s” toy sometimes, even with a question when they are first learning to talk. Eventually, it becomes “my” toy, but this is a conditioned response. It might sound strange if this is the first time you have ever heard this, but eventually, we can even unlearn this illusion or belief in a separate individual.
Seeing through this illusion is the key to true freedom. The experience of seeing beyond this illusion might seem odd at first. But when we get the hang of it, we can experience directly how all illusion drops away effortlessly. Both in this system and The Sedona Method seeing beyond, or letting go of this illusion is central to spiritual and practical life progress. Troubling emotions can lessen or drop away entirely in an instant. Clarity shines through where there has been confusion. Peace where we have struggled. As we practice seeing through this illusion, we can experience more ease in life and truly begin to live beyond life addictions.
The illusion of separation is another area that has been discussed in depth by Eastern spiritual traditions. Even Einstein had something to say about it:
Our separation of each other is an optical illusion of consciousness
Hale Dwsokin, the primary teacher of The Sedona Method, says it this way. “There is only One.” Each of us is a manifestation of that One.
We feel better physically, emotionally, and spiritually when we see through this illusion, even a little.
