Was there any “time” or “somewhere” where we were not aware? When we state You Are the Universe, we mean it in its full sense. We Are the Universe means we are Aware of the infinity encompassing everything. This is boundless Awareness. But the mind blocks most of the Awareness. Why? Because without this blocking there would be no creation. But we have the freedom, or better the capacity to always experience who we truly are.
It is a novel way at looking at the “world out there”, eh? And then fear goes away. Because fear arises from the (false) mis-identification of ourselves with an entity called the ego.
