The other life is another dimension. Our job is to bring that dimension down here and into this one.
Until we awaken, we are like someone in a coma whose body moves while they are dreaming. Small movements in the body are indications of that other life, trying to come through into this one. A parallel life.
As long as the ego is living through the body, the soul cannot enter. The soul has to send out signals, like Morse code, to the body.
To decipher the signal, we need to develop a new language for the mind.
