My guess is that it is all a matter of perspective. It may look like a divide from a limited personal sense view, but when you realize you are not 'living inside the body' then the view changes, you have a more all inclusive view that does not see it as a divide, but sees it as beauty.
An analogy might be something like standing on the rim of the Grand Canyon, you look across and think it is a huge divide and impossible to get across. Yet, if I were flying in an airplane over head, I would see it is not really a divide. I would see it as this marvelous channel that carries the waters from the high mountains down to the sea, and I's see it is totally part of the Whole vast landscape of the earth---one earth--no division.
Always when we can raise our vision, inner sense of identity, to a higher view, we get a more inclusive view. Since, in fact, we are this Expansive All Inclusive Awareness, we can actually Live from that place of seeing---not that we leave our bodies, at least not yet, not here in this time-space-arena, but that we can be wide open and directly in touch with this Living Truth, our Real Identity. But this is why I always speak of the Child, because this 'seeing' is so simple, and so natural and nothing unusual, or mystical---It's like being a little kid again, that feeling of being 'self-less' as just being without worry or fear or trying to figure things out-- You know, how kids just live spontaneously, moment to moment, unburdened by the 'adult mind set'---the adult mind set is 'set' and the Child is flexible and alive and giggles at most of what the adults think and do.
Just thought I could share that the more you insist on divided mind the further from peace you are going---not that you can ever get away from peace but we can make the trip a lot more difficult than necessary. And just as you are saying, if you think you need to fix the 'gap' then your thinking is not very positive. It is negative. It is stuck in the belief you are broken. The Positive thinking is the right track, but the positive thinking has to be rooted in the Truth, the Living Truth of Who You Are-- and so you want to fill your mind with thoughts that start with knowing you are not broken and then LIVING that Truth---because really, as Awareness no one is broken, Awareness is always here and whole and perfect and never breaks nor divides---Start there and actually Live It, trust it, step into It, it is Always You, whether you know it or not.
Much Love, Sandy Joy -- as in a little girl at the beach on a bright happy day.
You are not finished, until you play in that meadow and live there. You can, you know. But only you can take yourself there.
