"Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one." - Albert Einstein
Life is a very, very interesting experience to have when one pays attention to what he experiences. We are always made aware of where we are, of where we are heading to and of where we are supposed to go. We are basically reminded of what we are to accomplish. Who or what does that is a question that requires a complex answer. It is not impossible to explain though.
This may sound crazy and even scary, theoretical physicists have found evidence we are participants in an amazing virtual reality game, the product of a super-sophisticated computer program. As a result, while in terms of the choices we are allowed to make the possibilities are limitless, everything is digitally designed to occur in a certain way. Crazy, indeed. In other words, there is a logical rational reaction to every one of our action. However, we do not have control over that reaction. The universe does.
The law of cause and effect is one of the main rules of a game perceived as material reality, which leads one to reaching the same conclusion. We are the ones choosing what we experience. How the universe responds is not in our hands.
The universe is tuned to the frequency of honesty and truth. Mathematics, physics, geometry, these are truthful representations of what we perceive as being reality. This is why to some extent what we perceive as future is predictable and knowable, especially since what might happen in the future is there all the time.
Knowledge is what gives us the ability of making the appropriate, as in the most beneficial for the purpose of our being here choice of here and now event. That kind of choice corresponds to the existing circumstances and to the grand order of things. Indeed, universal law does not punish, nor does reward us for making "good" or "bad" choices. In houses of worship they made humans believe universal law is one with the will of some kind of god. Far from that, and yet nothing comes out of nothing. Rational logic says there must be a source for all the energy and information that makes the universe.
Certain entities claim the law of cause and effect does not rule the world of the spiritual, the world of the metaphysical. The spiritual generates the information carrying energies that become manifest as material forms, life forms included. The spiritual acts on the material the same way software makes images and sound appear on the screen of our computers. The information carrying energy that makes images and sound appear on the screen is unseeable but its effects are quite obvious. Because everything was programmed the effect is also predictable, and so is what we observe in the universe. We did not just imagine these devices. We figured out how the universe operates, and then we replicated that according to our current level of understanding of reality.
Humans are spirit energy within a physical body, software downloaded into a biological hard drive. The difference is that the spirit energy is repeatedly incarnating the hard drive of a human body for the purpose of advancement , of achieving enlightenment. Enlightenment translates into a higher vibrational frequency, and when the level of vibration is way above the vibrational frequency of the material world, the return to the material is no longer necessary.
Nothing of what we experience is a coincidence or without purpose. Reincarnation implies a continuation of a process of awakening. The purpose of what we experience is always attuned to the purpose of our being here and to the grand purpose behind the existence of the universe.
