World of Illusion
“We live in a fantasy world, a world of illusion. The great task in life is to find reality.”
When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.
“Abandon the urge to simplify everything, to look for formulas and easy answers, and to begin to think multidimensional, to magnificence in the mystery and contradictions of life, not to be depressed by the multitude of causes and consequences that are inherent in each experience — to appreciate the fact that life is complex.”
Our mind has the knack of making simple things complicated. However, if a situation is complicated, the mind reveals the complexity, yet it complaints that the problem should be simpler. The human mind makes simple things complicated and complicated things even more complex.
We revel in illusions. Is it a form of escapism, of opposing the reality by running away from it, unable to face the truth head-on? Or is it lack of thoughtful?
We run to astrologers, palmists, and numerologist to know our future but who can predict what will happen the next instant in our lives, let alone nine years hence? We have probably heard the story of an astrologer who predicted other people’s futures but didn’t know that his own daughter would be widowed.
Astrologers, palmists may forecast that we will be wealthy and live till a ripe old age, but in few days an upheaval can bury our family and its wealth in just a few moments.
Due to the fear of unknown, fear of death, fear of denial, fear of illness, fear of poverty, and fear of fear itself. We are occupied with fear – so we ease ourselves with illusions by creating traditions as a form of escape from reality.
We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place.
It is well-known fact, that in large number of persons, astrologers, palmists etc they make this propaganda that they are having the full and sufficient knowledge of telling the truth about the past, present and future to the public or who inclined to know about the future, it is also well known fact many of them they make propaganda fill their belly and they do not have that much knowledge that they claim, but they boast, as if they have much knowledge astrology, palmistry, etc
Life’s a little hard sometimes – there are lots of belongings that take a peal on our routine, some screw-ups, and failures that seem to make it all painful. Cheer up and rise from the ruins – we’ve given articles on karma and astrology that’ll surely put a smile on your face. Reading these wonderful words will give you strength to carry on as you face the harsh realities the world has to offer.
Illusions stem from fear!
It’s all an illusion: the illusion of space, the illusion of mass, the illusion of light. The illusions go on and on, there is no limit to the number of illusions you can come up with. The shapes the clouds form are illusions and eventually evaporate into nothingness.
“The reality of life is that your perceptions — right or wrong — influence everything else you do. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place.”
What we achieve inwardly will change outer reality. The only way to truth is to go within, where we have to go alone, in an egoless state, in love, in peace, in concentration, in yearning and believing
All illusion comes and goes, but the soul remains unchanged.
