Thoughtful Truths

“This inner world is truly infinite, in no way poorer than the outer one. Man lives in two worlds.” (C.G. Jung)


Reality is an illusion. We live in two separate dimensions, the reality of our perception (the external world) and the world that is (our inner world). The external world exists only by that which we can perceive through our 5 senses.

We could not see reality without eyes. We could not hear reality without ears. You get the point. Without our body, our tool for exploring our external reality, we would not be able to perceive and understand the outside world. But another reality exists in our inner world. We may inhabit physical bodies but we are not just our meat shells.

Our consciousness exists independent of our bodies, thoughts, feelings, etc. It resides in the reality of truth and universal knowledge which leads me to believe that death is simply the cessation of the perception of our bodies reality…
