Well, the illusion is real but there is something that transcends it. I hope many didn't came out confused when they've read about it. It can be confusing.

There's nothing wrong with your world and don't take it negatively. There is nothing that needs to be changed about yourself. You don't need to look any further cause what you are living is what you are living. You'll find your way. It's the illusion that can lead you to your freedom so you don't need to feel trapped in something you need to get out of.

Just wanted to mention that.

honestly, did you ever wonder there was something wrong with you when reading that?

I hope you are happy and healthy.

E.W.

There are ones who were made felt responsible for their illusion but there should be no guilt upon the people. There are ways to make them realise and awaken them in a proper way.

So you're basically saying Use your illusion.

The world is not real - it's a projection of the mind. It's an illusion you dreamed up for yourself, just as an experience, a perfectly neutral experience, but somehow you lost yourself within the dream and forgot to wake up. But it's ok. No guilt. It's not real, so why feel guilty for any of it? Instead, let your illusion wake you. The illusion you created can be translated into the stepping stones of your awakening - if you will allow it.

It's been a long night, brothers and sisters. But there's a hint of light on the horizon.

I got stuck in confusion for a couple of weeks a while ago, just thinking about what "life" is, is mind boggling. Everything about it confuses the jebus out of me. But to think that everything is an illusion of my own, makes me pretty happy. Thinking like that means i can do what ever i decide with my life, make this illusion my own if you get what i mean ?

What I understand is you need to get away from what something tries to accuse you of you have been innocent about.

You truly see what I mean.

It is true and it gives hope to people. I found what has been loaded upon humanity is injust and we need to be set free from that. It can be really destructive for mankind. With this of of the road we can breathe again for a huge part.
I hope everybody understands what I mean. It is relieving.

Thank you for your words truthcharmer. It really helps. You see what I mean. There don't need to be bad feelings about who you are or what you're going through. What's inside sets yourself straight. People are using their minds. It's just been very hard.

I want others to find relief this way. I want to be a heart for others.

I hope it works.

If I may, I'd like to share a message that came into my inbox this morning. The author is an older brother to all of us, a brother who is fully awake




I give thanks unto you, each of you, for your willingness to hear the call and to answer it, to step upon the bridge and allow its light, its intelligence...for the bridge is but the Holy Spirit, the link back to the mind of God...to guide you in all things. And as you learn not to hear the thoughts born of the world, but to hear the whispers of Spirit that arise from a quiet mind and a peaceful heart, and a decision to trust the voice for Spirit, you cannot fail to complete this journey. The end, therefore, is certain, and each of you in your own way...and indeed, all of you collectively...are witnessing and experiencing within yourselves and in your relationships, the manner in which the Father, God, is calling creation back to Herself.

Therefore, rejoice with one another. Be glad with one another. Celebrate one another. Love you, one another. For the end was written in the stars before the stars were birthed. And that time comes quickly. For long have I waited this age to be upon this plane, when enough momentum has been created in the consciousness of mankind so that a wave of awakening can no longer be shut out, that a wave of awakening can no longer be resisted, that a wave of awakening will melt away all fear. And once again the kingdom of heaven will be spread across the face of this Earth. But unlike the time when Man recognized it not, mankind will know that the truth is true, always...and that what is real cannot be threatend...and only what is real exists.

There, indeed, will come a moment when all dreams of fear are forgotten, when all strife and enmity between brothers and sisters is dissolved as but an “echo of a thought” thought so long ago that it's hardly even imaginable. The Earth will radiate the light of Truth yet again, as she, too, prepares to make her transition, her ascension, her vibrational change, and the waters of this planet will run clearly, and the skies will radiate with colors that have not yet been seen by human eyes. There will be a harmony between all species and mankind. And the way of the world will be forgotten. And the way of peace will start. And the Earth will provide all that mankind could possibly need, simply by the asking.


A slightly different spin on all the fear-mongering around here, perhaps.

I guess I'm lacking enlightenment or spiritually lift to completely understand this thread but there seems to be something wrong with the statement that reality is an illusion. Reality is not an illusion, the way we perceive it is an illusion, right?

Peace

What I would like to say to that is that the physical world (nature) doesn't reflect the spiritual. Those are two different worlds. The spiritual hasn't any bonds with the physical.

So what you say is really that what we see in reality is not the same as what we see. We perceive something different than what the things really are? I don't believe that.

It is the spiritual aspect of things that differ from reality.

Hmmm.....maybe this is too deep for me.


All I know is that the "perceived" ground I walk on is shared by my dog when I take him for a walk. The birds in the sky seem to agree that that open space between the ground and the clouds is good for flying. And the water that I perceive as wet seems to also be a place where fish like to reside.......


Unless you are saying that they are also an illusion.

What I can understand is that seeing the "real world" from different perspectives also generates different views of reality. Reality however does not change, it just is.

Here's a TED talk from Jill Bolte taylor, a brain researcher that suffered a stroke. It really is a beautiful video and I would suggest watching the entire video (I know it's 18min long but worth the time!!!)

You're right. The metaphysical explanation is that the truth of reality is perfect oneness, and the illusion is the perception of separation. That's it in a nutshell. We don't see the bigger picture, we don't see how all things and all beings are connected and part of the same universal organism. Instead, our vision is narrowed to the personal ego, where what we mostly see is a separate self that seems to be constantly under attack from a fearful world. And so we go around 90% of the time making these huge efforts to protect ourselves, to defend ourselves from some imagined threat. But the threat is not in the world - that's the illusion, my friend. The threat is only ever in our minds, but because we believe it to be true, we project that belief out into the world and onto those around us.

The mind creates experience through belief. If we continue to believe in attack and defense for long enough, eventually we start to create expeiences of being attacked by something in the world, and the result of this is that it reinforces our belief in the fearful world, and we become even more committed to defending ourselves from this threat that's now feeling even more real than before. And on it goes. And when we have 6 billion of us doing the same thing, over and over again, the illusion of attack and defense gets played out in some pretty bizarre and messed up ways. Just look around some of the threads on this website, for starters.

But here's the secret - none of it is real. It really is like the theme of the Matrix. It's a dream. We can't seem to wake up because we've invested so much belief in it. The reason it's not real is that the whole thing is built on a premise that can't be true - separation. That's the core belief of illusion in our minds. And that's the belief we need to release. To awaken is to awaken to the truth of Oneness. In perfect Oneness there can be no threat. There can be no attack, and no reason to defend. Nothing to fear.

When we wake up, we won't immediately leave the world. It's not like the physical world disappears. But we will certainly perceive everything - absolutely everything - in a completely different way.

Thank you for that eloquent reply.


I `know` all this stuff but statements like `this world is just an illusion` or `the world is not real` deserve a little scrutiny. That´s it really.......


Peace
