Symbols from the universal images are formed in the transition from the wholeness of the observer and the observed, to the separation of the observer and the observed.
What reality in itself contains, is real in this dimension, not symbolic, not linguistical.
But when reality becomes unreality in the separation of the observer and the observed, it narrows, loses clarity and light, is being muted to the split consciousness, and that – which in reality was truth – will transmute itself to symbols.
That which is truth in reality and presence, is symbolic in unreality and absence.
It is therefore very difficult for the universal images to communicate themselves to an ordinary absent consciousness.
It requires, that you yourself do your part of the work.
