Carl Jung said, "One who looks outside dreams, one who looks inside awakes." It is not wrong to desire to be awake, to be happy. What is wrong is to look for happiness outside when it can only be found inside.

Someone commented on the ten commandments and the concept of "carving graven images" and I felt like explaining it as I see it, thus:

The idea of 'carving graven images' isn't necessarily meant to be taken literally. It is more of a metaphor to explain a deeper truth. 
For instance, think of it this way: The mind of man (intellect) is limited by his response to the created realm, the realm of matter, or the world of cause and effect which we acknowledge via our senses. 
As we enter into higher levels of mind which lead beyond materialism, beyond the realm where time and space do not exist in reality, we experience the sense of Infinity, there is just "Beingness" -- the great "I AM that 'I AM'." 
So, to enter into the higher consciousness state you must not limit yourself by "mind" or its activity; instead you must learn to quieten the mind, as any good Meditation teacher will tell you. Therefore as you open yourself to the higher consciousness you experience the "Presence" as something beyond all mental creations (graven images) of what you think of as God. In other words, 
"Mind be still and know that 'I AM' God."
How do you encapsulate the Universal Consciousness, or God Presence? You don't, although we like to try creating (carving) an image in our mind. But it is just an idea you created in your mind, a graven image, and not the Reality. We don't know WHAT IT IS, we only know THAT IT IS.

A person suggests we should only believe what we can see with our eyes, in other words, the evidence of our senses, and all else is delusion. I chose to disagree with that and said:

I think you've got it in reverse. Fact is, the illusion is based on what you experience with your senses - the visible world. And why are your senses the source of your delusions? Because the sense world is transitory, impermanent, changeful from one moment to the next. Whereas the "invisible realm" is constant, universal, unchanging, it simply exists. We don't know 'what' IT IS, we only know THAT IT IS. This goes beyond man's limited senses, beyond the mind of man, into a realm of Universal Consciousness.

THOUGHT OF THE DAY:

Ignorance has no principle in itself, just as error has no principle. Mathematics has a principle, but error can have none, for when the error is corrected, it disappears. Therefore, you learn that ignorance and error have no power of their own.

[pg 30, "Divine Healing of Mind and Body" by MacDonald-Bayne]
