It’s strange but there are some moments where I feel that everything around me is something like the 3-D rendering of a computer program, and that my consciousness is the only thing that exists.
There are also moments when I see something happening to some other people or somebody doing something, be it in the news or in real life, I have this feeling that I am them. The multimillionaire who owns a big house, the CEO who has 100s of people reporting to him, the middle-class father who has three young children to worry about each day, the young man in his early 20s who is dating his high school sweetheart… I feel like I am all of them and they are all me, even if I don’t remember having gone through what they experienced, I sometimes feel like I don’t need to desire all those because I have already had those experiences in my past lives.
Do I really want that big house? On one hand it seems that I do want to live in a certain type of house in a certain location and I have only one life so I should make sure I work hard to make enough money to get my dream home. On the other hand, the feeling that I have a limitless number of lives and experiences, and that I am have already lived in that big house in another life.
And when I refer to “another life”, I am not referring to another life that is differentiated from this current life in chronological terms. Perhaps I should say, “another reality”.
Not sure what I am writing actually. It’s confusing.
