We are Spiritual Beings having a Human Experience. If we concede to human nature, we resign ourselves to being less than we really are.
Cynthia Davidson, excerpt from Ultimate Reality card

So, how about doing a big reality check with me over the next ten days? Your reality, my reality, our reality, the Big Picture, the macro and the micro, how much reality are we dealing with? If you want your reality to improve, you need to change your perception of it and your relationship with it.
Ultimate Reality includes everything, what some call the All That Is, Absolute or Infinite Reality. I like to imagine it as a vast playing field, far grander than our physical senses can appreciate. By realizing we are spiritual beings having a human experience, we can free ourselves from the ego tyranny of merely ‘human nature’ and enter that playing field.
Ultimate Reality is not limited by time or space. It is spiritual and energetic. It is the souls realm, where we can comprehend the Sacred Oneness it All.
There are so many levels of human and universal consciousness to explore within Ultimate Reality. To do this we have to expand and evolve; mentally, emotionally and spiritually.
Together, with all our combined thoughts, feelings and intentions, we are constantly reshaping and recreating this Ultimate Reality. Fear is counterproductive and contracting when facing such vast wholeness, but responsibility and Compassion are welcome.
What is your part to play during this lifetime?
Where is your place in all of this?
Bring up the subject of Ultimate Reality with friends and family this week, and talk about what happens when people refuse to face reality. Why is denial so popular?
Whether it's conspiracy theories, propaganda, the lack of facts, education or the easily swayed emotions that get in the way, why don't you volunteer to speak up on behalf of Ultimate Reality for the next ten days at least?
From the swirl of stars and planets, in faraway galaxies, to the whorls at the end of our fingertips, the Circle repeats itself, endlessly right down to the atomic and genetic levels. These wheels within Wheels, these concentric, interlocking spirals of energy hint at the style and substance of Ultimate Reality. Here's some wisdom to get your conversations started with others.
Australian aborigines describe Ultimate Reality as the Dream Time. This is where the Laws that govern their lives come from, a Time beyond any individual lifetime. The Rainbow Serpent guards the Dream Time.

To a large degree ‘reality’ is whatever the people who are around at the time agree to.
To deny the reality of things is to miss their reality;
to assert the emptiness of things is to miss their reality.
The more you talk and think about it, the further astray you wander from the truth.
Stop talking and thinking and there is nothing you will not be able to know.
Hsin Hsin Ming
The emotional virus lives and thrives in the gap between expectations and perceived reality.
Doc Childre and Bruce Cryer, From Chaos to Coherence
One can never really give a proof of the reality of anything; reality is not something open to proof, it is something established. It is established just because proof is not enough. It is this characteristic of language, at once indispensable and inadequate, which shows the reality of the external world. Most people hardly ever realize this, because it is rare that the very same man thinks and puts his thought into action...
Simone Weil , LP, p. 72-3
Art is our opportunity to get things right. To tell the truth. To find the ultimate reality.
Man keeps searching for a truth that fits his reality. Given our reality, the Truth doesn't fit.
The supreme experience is staggering, enrapturing, blissful, and inspiring, but at the same time inexplicable and ungraspable by the intellect. The experience is supremely illuminating because it reveals the grandeur, sublimity and the eternal nature of the soul, but beyond that -- what? All that is beyond lies out of the reach of the intellect, and hence cannot be translated into any language devised by the mind.
To surrender to God’s will is to surrender to the truth that nothing other than the Ultimate Reality is permanent… The pathway to Enlightenment via radical truth is demanding and requires the surrendering of all belief systems. Only then does the Ultimate Reality reveal itself as the sought-after “I” of the Supreme
Dr. David Hawkins, American psychiatrist, physician, researcher, mystic and pioneer in the fields of consciousness research and spirituality
When light is visible and organized into concrete objects, reality is material.
When light contains feeling, thought and intelligence, reality is quantum.
When light is completely unmanifest, with no qualities anyone can measure, reality is virtual.
Deepak Chopra in his book How To Know God
Each religion has its own method of realization whereby the ultimate reality, the final self, the integrating principle is reached.
D. T. Suzuki in his book What Is Shin Buddhism?
In ten days we'll take up the Law of Pure Potential, until then, enjoy your glimpses into Ultimate Reality.
