    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

    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.
