I would like all of you who hear the internal dialogue to think about something as a possibility.
Imagine that when we are altered in consciousness what actually happens is that our individual boundaries are temporarily dissolved.
Suppose that what we have been hearing is actuallyeach other
, all over space/time, on a universal level of existence.
(Come on; humour me for a little bit here)
If that is the case, then we would have to deal with that in a different way wouldn't we, since all any of us say or do would be directly affecting everyone else in that 'space.'
Holding that as your premise of reasoning then, let's begin from that point.
(If you have trouble accepting this as possible, just do it 'as if', you believed it.)
I would like you to think about this experience which the majority of hearers seem to have:
Some hearers are terribly frightened by being yelled at and called evil by some of the voices. Voices yell at them to 'get out' or to kill themselves. They may be told that God will not forgive them or that they are going to 'burn in hell.'
Still others tell us that they deal with the voices in their space by suggesting to
them that they go
ahead and kill themselves, or they yell at THEM
to 'get out' and they tell them THEY
are evil and that God will punish them.
If we were in fact, , or psychic, or having an out of body experience, that we did not understand we were having, and did not know how to control, what might that mean
What if both of the above hearers were only dealing with each other
but did not know that, or understand that?
Wouldn't we then be making all of this even worse
by handling it the way we were?
What would happen if we took the "Golden Rule" into
the collective inner space with us and with self focus practised the principle of mutual respect instead? How fast and how much could we change the quality
of that experience if we did?
I believe that whether you think I am 'crazy' or not, that we must all try
to do exactly that; for our own sakes as well as others, and that this is not an either/or choice at all.
All 'the voices'; yours, mine, ours, inner space or outer space, must respect, honour, explain and support the collective
experience to all the other 'voices.'
As I once said to the 'others', "It is just us we hear. We are, or can be, the best support group the world has ever known. Nobody understands it better than those who have gone through it." Especially those of us who make it out the other side of the collective chaos in one piece.
I actually wrote this in 2003 but since then have discovered Marrius Romme has much the same idea and so do many voice hearers.
