Shhh, I’m trying to watch the film.

You’re watching a good film. So engrossed are you, that only the rustle of a confectionery packet reminds you you’re watching a film.

Or maybe it was the stiffness in your leg or a feeling of thirst that brought you back.

As the Self there are no such signals.

What will bring you back to the Self and remind you your life is just a movie?

Someone in the movie will tell you. 

You’ll check and see if it’s true.

Maybe you’ll get drawn back into the action a few times. Or maybe not. 

But you’ll remember what you knew all along.

And maybe you’ll turn to the person next to you and say “it’s just a movie”.

And they’ll probably say “Shhh I’m trying to watch the film.”
