I refer to the Inner Self and the collective Inner Selves as “THEM” (like Frank DeMarco’s TGU “The Guys Upstairs”).
THEY know what THEY’re doing … in this life and all the others. THEY also know all the probabilities and possibilities. THEY are actually us … once we shift our focus from this 3D movie we’re playing in to the greater reality outside of this theatre Earth.
In the meantime, our job is to love, laugh and enjoy the experience … making choices and decisions that make life more beautiful and enhances the experience of THEM.
“The inner self is aware of all of your existences, in other words. It sees where and how your many lives fit together. It is only because you are so oriented outward from birth that this inner self sometimes seems alien or distant and unrelated to the self that you know. It would be impossible to be consciously aware of all of the infinitesimal details that exist in even one life; your consciousness would be so full and cluttered up that you would be unable to make choices, or to use free will.
“It would be even more difficult to try to handle the information of many lives at one time. In your terms, “it” takes time to think, and you would be so caught up in thinking itself, that action would be impossible. The inner knowledge of all of your lives, from your point of view, is in the same category as those automatic processes that underlie your existence.”
