I've been reflecting on oneness to. Oneness is the end. I am not there yet. I was thinking one cannot follow (live) seven paths, each lifetime is one path. One at a time. The paths don't go away, reincarnation. Can oneness create duality, create illusion. Do I need to see all the lamps and their light so to speak. The final path is the choice I think, the one I will follow. Haven't chosen yet.

Hi, Nice.
Well, just sayin', being still, quiet, in silence is part of every Path!
So you can feel confident in starting with that , imo.

Well I do. This 'philosophy' is for me the basis of all my ponderings over the years. However I don't consider an ego has anything to do with it.
Above all things we are 'mind' and this mind is a shared plane, one full of unimaginable potential.

It's not quite what I mean but it is quite simple in a way - the world (that reality 'thing' outside yourself) didn't exist until you were born. We didn't come into this world - we came out of it - just like a tulip comes out of the earth/Earth.

In fact there are more than 8 billion realities in the universe/world as all animals, plants, minerals are constantly in a state of feedback with the All.
We (as awarenesses) are positioned where we are, in the state or condition we are in, to fulfill the need of the universe to move forward. To evolve.

We are, if you like, the windows on the universe and thus observe and reflect knowledge.

Everything I experience is constantly changing. But I still thinlk it is not unreal. I don't consider permanence is a necessary requirement for something to be real. What distinguishes illusion from the real is that it does not exist.

I think that everything is real on its own level.

Some may say that this physical world is an illusion, but they still have to live in it and deal with it as if it were real.

And maybe when we die and find ourselves elsewhere then this physical life will seem like a dream without substance. But as long as we are in a physical body then we have to deal with the practical requirements of physical existence.

Peace

Agreed, that is the Agreement we made coming here.

I was thinking something similar this morning. So many paths, so many teachings, so many practices. We cannot do them all justice in one short lifetime. So maybe we each find our own path and practices, whatever works for us. We do not need to rigidly conform to what anyone else teaches.

And as has been said, Truth is a pathless land. There is just us, present, here and now. Wherever we might be, we simply take the next step.

Peace

Fortunately we now know about parallel universes/timepaths and may deduce that not all functions/awarenesses need to be developed in this 3D timepath.

Dreams are often used to share learnings across timepaths. One of the clues is seeing in a dream a person you know well but that looks quite differently in the dream

I've had several dreams about another probable reality of me whose father moved the family to California instead of Missouri, as we did in this lifetime of Joe. I've also had some of mowing a lawn I never mowed in this reality, and swimming in a pool I never swam in. I felt like my same self of Joe in all of these. I haven't had any in which anyone looked different, except for one in which a woman looked about 40 years younger.
