Are We Trapped In This Lightless Box?


In the infinite is a grid, with countless numbers of holes in it. Nothing even so small as an atom can pass through one of those holes. All of the limits must be transcended in order to pass through that grid. Everything is trained out, sifted out. 
Only what can pass through that grid moves through Infinity, and only one thing can pass through that grid. That is the Divine Itself, the very Being. Everything else is sifted out. Everything else is to gross.


Viewed in another fashion, 
between here and infinity there is a single point infinitely small.
 Only God can pass through it. 
Everything else is strained out. 

If you are yet too large, not one with God, you cannot pass through that point and you settle in whatever plane of association to which you cling, with which you identify.
This entire universe is like a little dark box that projects an image against one side. The light comes through a point of infinite smallness, seeming to fill the box with light, but you cannot enter into the domain of that light until you pass through that point, until you are relaxed, released of everything that is too great to pass through that point.
In some sense this description is a metaphor. But I am also describing something that is literally so, that is perceived just in this sense, as, in fact, a point. 
We are pressurized into this phenomenal state, because we cannot presume identity with what is on the other side of that point. We see the reflections, the modifications, of that infinite Radiance, but we do not enjoy identification with that Condition itself. 


We are stuck, trapped in this box, this illusion. 
This illusion is made of that same light and pervaded by it. 
It is not separate from it. 

Until we realize the Source and condition of this modified realm of light, however, we feel bound and limited and we are forced to endure all kinds of adventures.
There is freedom from this dis-ease only in the advent of identification with the Condition and Source of this manifestation. In that event, we are Translated into that Condition itself. We pass though this point, the bindu that determines this appearance. 
By surrendering as this self, we make this aperture infinitely large so that we can pass through it. But when we awaken on the other side, it is as if none of this present manifestation exits. 



To awaken on the other side of that point, 

is the equivalent of waking up in this world 
having slept or dreamed.
I can tell you this, having passed through that point.
