In many cultures, there is a saying "It is Written." Implying that everything is already done.
During Meditation, there was some imagery that came to reveal, if one is interested, how this can be seen.
When you awake in the morning and you open your eyes, you immediately start the projector in front of you. The movie begins to roll.
Just like when you enter a movie and the lights go out... you know the movie is about to begin.
The lights being out ... is your sleeping time. As the lights/movie come on the screen...your waking time.
Although, like any good movie, it seems like it is actually happening... and all the emotions and drama and joys can be felt and experienced.
The story that is playing out in front of you...has already happened. And you are in the theater (body) of your self...watching the movie called "Life." However, you (the Real You) are what the movie appears On.
