As soon as we realize that we are not what we are experiencing, we feel relieved and detached from whatever it is we are experiencing. Now we are able to experience these occurrences with an open heart and mind, and we are at peace with this world. Eternal peace arises in us as we see clearly who we really are.
The same realization applies to people around us. We no longer label them as bad, good, sad, happy, young, or old; we see the eternal light in every being. All these forms, thoughts, emotions, and experiences are just like images projected onto a screen. At the end of movie, we know there will be only a screen.
How liberating when we come to this realization! Who can be bothered by life anymore? Life becomes a pleasant breeze - enjoy!
