I'm very tired of reading that reality is an illusion.
In actuality ,reality is real ,otherwise it wouldn't be called "Reality".
But ,there are other realities which differ depending on the perception ,
so that the point of view actually alters the reality (or that within your
perception). Because of the parameters we have defined for ourselves
we have this seemingly solid reality setting where some things are
indeed false while other things are true. Some things are always true ,
but it actually varies with most things from reality to reality.
To me ,a reality is a limitation on existence so that we can focus
on certain aspects of the overall infinite within certain parameters.
In saying "Time to get back to reality" you are actually limiting your options.
All realities are valid and they are real ,because they're always there.
If they weren't ,you wouldn't have been able to perceive them in the first place.
It is existence that is the illusion. Reality is the only real. And there is only one reality.

So what happens when you leave? Certainly you wouldn't be back to post here right? Also, what is a "christian mystic"?

The matrix is a closed system from which few escape. There is but one door. The key to this door is truth.
Truth is the only thing that will set you free. So go now, and find this truth.

Well I am christian, and I don't hate you, but I am not at liberty to hate anyone. I had never heard the term before, so thanks for the clarification. I do believe in a "matrix" so to speak, I am curious what you think reality should be then. Maybe you have a clue or can speculate?
