“You are not who you really are….What is possessing you is the virtual you. It’s what you think you are; it’s what you believe you are, and that image of yourself becomes extremely powerful.
“All these years of practice have made you a master of pretending to be what you think you are. And that distorted image of yourself is really your grave, because the real you is not the one who is living your life.
“And who is living your life? …Is it the real you who judges yourself and punishes yourself… Is it the real you who abuses your body? Is it the real you who doesn’t even like yourself? Is it really the real you who is dreaming all that? No, it’s not the real you.
“When you recover awareness, you resurrect and come back to life. 
“In the Christian tradition, the resurrection day is when the Christ comes back from the dead and shows his Divinity to the world. That’s why you are here: to come back from the dead and reclaim your own divinity.
“It’s time to come back from the world of illusion, the world of lies, and return to your own truth, to your own authenticity. It’s time to unlearn the lies and become the real you. And in order to do that, you need to come back to life, which is truth.
“Awareness is the key to coming back to life…where you rebel against all the lies that are ruling your head. You rebel, and the whole dream stars changing.”
