There’s an expression in Sanskrit, “Aham brahmasmi.” It means “I am the universe and the universe is me.”
My spirit guides have often said we are not our physical bodies. However, most of us identify the person we call “I” with our physical bodies. So if we are not our bodies, who are we? Where are we? What are we?
If the Sanskrit expression is right, and I believe it is, then whatever we perceive to be “out there” is really in here, within each of us. But that “each of us” is not our physical body.
This goes along with the idea we all create our own realities—we project what we perceive as “reality” from within ourselves—from our consciousness which is who we really are.
In this short video Deepak Chopra discusses some of these ideas.
