Conceiving of the Separation Game
In most of the multitude of realities that “we” created and then played within we knew, to varying degrees, what we were — creator beings that are integral parts of the One creator being — Source consciousness, prime creator, God, or whatever else you like to call it.
But within this great diversity of realities, there were none in which we completely forgot what we were — and this possibility intrigued us immensely. What would that be like and what could it teach us? It certainly seemed like it might be very interesting, to say the least.
So in our eternal quest to know ourselves and the nature of our existence we set out to create this new type of reality — one where we would completely lose our connection to our divine source, forget that we are creators and all integral parts of One universal consciousness. A reality where we would think we were separate from the creator and each other. A reality where we would experience the greatest degree of individuality and separation anywhere in the Multiverse — a reality that could aptly be called “The Separation Game.”
Our entire Universe is a manifestation of the separation game. It’s like a huge multi-stage set where the separation game is playing out on many worlds and at many levels. One of the worlds where the separation game is in full swing is our very own planet Earth.
When we conceived of this reality, it was not at all obvious how to create it, and many of us (our higher non-physical selves) thought it might be impossible. But eventually, with much experimentation, we hit upon a combination of many elements that did the trick.
Key Elements of the Separation Game Design
Some of the key elements that allowed this reality system to be achieved were “The Veil of Forgetting”, the delay between our thoughts and their manifestation into reality, the role of “The Adversary”, and the “Emotion Construct Holders”. Let’s dive in and explore each of these.
The Veil of Forgetting and Unknowing
The number one mechanism that enables this reality system to function as the separation game that we intended is the Veil of Forgetting. When we incarnate we completely forget that we are eternal non-physical creator beings (our souls and beyond) and are integral parts of the one universal consciousness. When we incarnate we completely forget that we chose and planned this incarnation and our reasons for doing so. This forgetting is obviously essential for the separation game to work. Without it, we simply would not believe that we were separate individuals at the mercy of circumstances trying to survive in a cold, cruel world. The Veil is absolutely required to produce an experience of a separation reality.
The Veil does more than make us forget as we enter our incarnation, it also “filters” the information that might be available to us so we can’t rediscover our true nature. This function of the Veil might be best termed the “Veil of Unknowing” and what it essentially does is to guarantee that we cannot prove that all is one. Anything that approaches irrefutable proof of our oneness with All That Is will always include sufficient cause for doubt that we cannot be sure and will have to make up our own mind.
But since the most fundamental truth about everything is its inherent oneness, and since the Veil hides this from us, then it follows that it must hide the deepest nature of everything because knowing the deepest nature of anything would inevitably lead to knowing the oneness of all. So we can know about the surface of things, but the Veil blocks us from knowing the true cause. Despite the popular belief that science has gotten close to understanding everything, it is very far from the truth. If you take a long hard look at modern science, you will realize that we understand only the surface layers but don’t understand anything to its core. And this is because of the Veil of Unknowing.
The efficacy of the Veil of Unknowing is amply demonstrated by the fact that the existence of God and spirit has not been proven. Despite concerted efforts by some very capable spiritual philosophers throughout the ages, not one has ever been able to prove the existence of God beyond all doubt. This is really quite incredible, the one that contains everything, creates everything, and that we are all integral parts of cannot even be proven to exist! And every single one of us is spirit, and yet it is very reasonable to claim that there is no spirit!…
