In the blockbuster film Inception, the main characters discovered a way to enter into another realm—the realm of dreams. While the dreams appeared to be as vivid and as authentic as the real world where they were currently sleeping, the dream realm was not their reality.
Since the dream appeared to be real to all of their five senses, each character had to create an item they would use to let them know if they were in a dream or in reality. Without the item, the person in the dream might begin to believe that the dream was reality, and they might stay there—operating by the laws of reality within the realm of the dream.
The main character’s item was a spinning top. If his top kept spinning endlessly, that meant he was in a dream. If it fell, he had woken up. The knowledge that he was in a dream enabled him to take more risks and live differently because he knew at any time, he could simply wake back up into reality.
Is it possible that right now, our ultimate reality isn’t happening in the physical world as we see it? Could it be that right now, there is a battle waging all around us in the unseen realms and that spiritual battle has physical effects in this world? If that’s true, then most of us are walking around in this world with no idea of what’s happening in that one. The top keeps on spinning.
The spiritual world is real. Conversations, decisions, battles and the like that occur in the spiritual realm unilaterally impact what takes place in our physical lives. Unless we realize that truth and wake up to the battle, we will continue to look for physical solutions to solve spiritual problems manifesting themselves in our physical lives.
It’s time to wake up and get in the real fight.
