You’ve go to search for the hero inside yourself,
Search for the secrets you hide.
Search for the hero inside yourself
Until you find the key to your life. Search for the Hero, M People

Imagine you're waiting for a bus. Suddenly, Superman arrives. He tries to lift you up.

"Whoa! What do you think you're doing?" you say.

"I'm trying to fly you to your destination."

"You're having a laugh, aren't you?" you say. "This is real life, mate, not Metropolis. You have no powers here."

"You're so wrong," Superman says. "I have super-hearing, super-sight, and I can move at the speed of light."

"Go away!" you say. "Come to think of it, I think I'm dreaming. Superman does not exist. I must wake out of this dream."

But wait, this is not as mad as it sounds. What if you are living in the same reality as Superman, and all the other superheroes, but you just don't realise it?

This happened yesterday. I am about to enter a room. I believe the door is wide open but it isn't. I end up hitting my head hard against it. I think to myself: "That didn't happen. I am Spirit." I feel my head becoming less dense. The pain dissolves instantly.

While I occasionally have "accidents", it's becoming like second-nature to me now to remember that I am Spirit. Spirit is the realm of ideas and Imagination. Spirit and ideas are made of the same stuff. Ideas don't get hurt unless of course they are comic character ideas that have been designed that way. Even so, comic characters tend to bounce back anyway.

So when I realise myself as Spirit, I am saying that I am not flesh and blood but an idea. Don't ask me how it works; all I know is my body feels intangible, as if my body is empty space. I've had moments of panic when I've had to weigh myself to check that I still exist. Hahaha.

The Universe is not material, it is spiritual. In other words, the Universe is Imagination, a realm of ideas. There is no difference between superheroes and us. We are all made of the same stuff. It's just that we think of ourselves as mortals having a material existence.

Earlier today while I was waiting at a bus stop, I observed many lorries. I marvelled at their sizes. All of a sudden, there were all these lorries driving past. While there was no traffic, I imagined the longest lorry ever in the space in front of me. Within a few seconds, the space was filled with a long truck, the type that has 12 wheels. Wow! I dreamed up another and the space was soon filled up by another super-lorry! Awesome!

What we see as space is nothing but Imagination. In empty space all sorts of characters and superheroes exist. There are mythical characters, gods, angels and whatever you could imagine. The world of ideas is all goodness, of course, unless you fancy yourself as an anti-hero.

There is no need to search for the hero. We are all super-heroes.

Well of course, this is so. :}

We got this TV commercial, where everyone is walking around with a bright cape on. Im not sure what they are selling for sure, and at one point in the commercial it sort of implyed that your a superhero if you take the time to read the lables, and another shot of a caped crusader opening a jar of pickles for someone. Maybe it was a cell phone commercial, lol.

Yeah, bushman, you would have to be a super-moron to believe in advertising, says she, as she reaches out for her favourite brand. lol

Back in the old days, when I still lived in pasadena CA, they had a food place called "The Hat" they moved it from Hollywood, they advertized the best pastrami subs in town, but then I went there to order one and its made of corned beef, now apperently a pastrami sub in New York is made with corned beef, still its beyond my imagination to pretend I'm eatting pastrami when its deffinetly corned beef, lol. You know its confusing because the lables, since Submarine sandwitch, and Hero sandwitch, is not the same as a gyro sandwitch, yet different food places always got them wrong, because theres no such thing as a Hero sandwitch. Anyway its food for thought, lol.

i was in south carolina once and ordered a ham and cheese sub, or hero as some people call it in other parts. I got a hot dog roll with one slice of ham coldcut and some cheese wiz melted on top. Made me glad I don't live "down there".
Nice article Enocia. I'd like to learn more about easing the pain of walking into closed doors. Been there done that (the walking into doors thing, not the disappearing pain thing :)

Bushman, have you ever watched the film, The Matrix. Neo and others are fighting to rescue humanity from The Matrix, or programmes. Cypher is sick of living outside the Matrix and decides to betray his colleagues to the agents. When Cypher is having steak after a long time he says: "You know, I know this steak doesn’t exist. I know that when I put it in my mouth, the matrix is telling my brain that it is juicy and delicious. After nine years, you know what I realize? Ignorance is bliss." So, Bushman, what does it matter what the package says, as long as you believe you're eating it. Enjoyment and tastes are all in the mind anyway. This is why I pay no attention to food labels.

One observation I've had about America. When I was last there, I was overwhelmed by the food sizes. I remember buying what I considered to be pizza for one and it was so huge it could feed 5,000 people. :) I think Brits are so deprived we can't cope with your food sizes. Saying that, I think London has got a wider variety of cuisines. You name it, we've got it, albeit in small quantities. We've even got Subway over here now; they do great sandwiches.

Hi jmarc,

You wrote: "Nice article Enocia. I'd like to learn more about easing the pain of walking into closed doors. Been there done that (the walking into doors thing, not the disappearing pain thing" :)

lol. Yes, it takes practise thinking of oneself as Spirit. The thought changes the density of the body or door and it feels less dense; and the feeling of pain also changes because Spirit doesn't have feeling as we do as humans. This means one can change the past by simply realising that all is Spirit.

So I recommend banging your head against a brick wall a few times a day, but always have it at the back of your mind that you are not flesh and bone but Spirit. ;)
