Don’t get caught up in the world of separate forms. Realize that all forms are created out of the love of the Universe. They are all actually one thing seeming like it is many things. Creating the experience of separate forms is the only way the Universe can experience itself. It is the loving desire of the Universe that provides the impetus for all forms to be born and to die and return to their source, only to return again in the form of other forms. In this way, the cycle of life and death is the Universe’s cycle of desire and fulfillment.
Before you were born you knew yourself to be the Universe itself, but this knowledge wasn’t enough for you. You deeply desired to go beyond knowledge and actually experience the wonder of yourself. That all-consuming desire is what caused your birth as a human being, and it is that desire that continues to maintain your body and the environment that supports your body right now. When the time comes that you decide you have created the experience you desired to experience, you will then desire to cause your death and move on to another, perhaps more expanded type of experience. This cycle has gone on, is going on now, and will continue to go on forever. You are the Universe, desiring to experience yourself in all the ways you can.
You didn’t know this before because you were caught in the world of separate forms, and so you didn’t know that you were in control of your experience. But now you do know, and now you can take the power that is your nature and mould your desire to create new, wondrous forms and consciously create an experience that is more reflective of your true nature.
Where you once created your life based on your illusory identity as the limited form of a human being, you now will create it based on your true identity as the ever-expanding, infinite, loving, joyful, harmonious Universe. You will create the experience of remembering the knowledge you had of yourself before you were born. You will create the experience of yourself as the Universe incarnate.
