    Cool Spread out into it

    In some curious advices to talk to deads from a movie, I read:

    You are aware of your Self in a way you never have been before. Spread out into it.

    What's the meaning of Spread out into it? Does it mean "Get deeper into your Self"?

    Thanks

    Re: Spread out into it

    The meaning is pretty similar to "Get deeper into your self." I would paraphrase it as: examine every part of yourself.

    It is either the dead or the dead ones/people, but not deads, IMO.

    Yes, also, "advice" is uncountable.

    Re: Spread out into it

    Why do you want to talk to "dead people from a movie"?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: Spread out into it

    I would suggest that if you want to talk to dead people, whether from a movie or not, don't worry too much about the language. There are rather more pressing issues to worry about.

    Re: Spread out into it

    I would rather prefer you helping me with the doubt instead of making fun of the lack of a "comma" between "deads" and "from", but OK pals, it has been funny

    It depends on the philosophy of the movie. If this is a ghost who does not realise he's dead, or is having trouble "passing over", it might mean, "Let go of yourself, and let yourself fuse with the oneness - which is quite the opposite of focusing on yourself. But I don't give advice to dead people, so I could be wrong.

    Re: Spread out into it

    Sorry, those advices are for the living, in order to communicate with dead. Always according to the movie, of course. Thanks for your concern.
