There’s a saying that floats around spiritual circles.
The instructions are on the outside of the box.
The box is the ego, the mental construct we have formed. Our separate reality. We need people or teachers who are outside their box to tell us how to get out of ours. To read the instructions to us.
Ironically, we seek to get outside the box by going further out whereas the way to get out is to go in. (laughs)
When we step into the point of our existence, we step into infinity. That takes us outside the box, into that which contains all boxes. When we can see the outside of the box, we can see that it’s an illusion and let it go.
We see that it’s not so much that the instructions are on the outside but that correct seeing is from outside. Then we can see the box for what it is.
