If the light is the limit then why am I beyond it?

How is it an illusion? An illusion caused by what?

The first chapter of the Tao Te Ching,Written by Lao-tzu
From a translation by S. Mitchell.

The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.

The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.

Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.

Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.

Nice thread arpgme, i like what you have written.

The illusion is the light but the illusion is seen by the darkness. There is only ever the seer and the seen, it looks like two things but they are one. When there is no light, the darkness sees nothing, no image (it is like pure God - the absolute), it is void. When the light appears, there is consciousness and then the darkness can know itself.

I think God is the darkness and Satan is the light. The light is what is seen and God loses himself in the light show then he finds himself in the dark. The dark, like you say is peace.

The darkness, the void, the nothingness is all there is in deep sleep. You are not aware of your existence because in deep sleep nothing exists, nothing stands out from the oneness (we all love deep sleep, because without our knowing existence there is total peace). When the light comes on, you open your eyes and existance is seen. The darkness that you are never leaves when the light is on, it is your true nature, it just gets obscured by the light.

There is no darkness only light hence darkness is created in our imagination/perception but not just our physical imagination. There is only perception based on our spiritual evolution so to speak. Consciousness is light there is never no consciousness it has always been you have always been but you have been fragmented and slowly those fragments are coming together as you progress through eternity. Even the worlds of form are an illusion.

The world of form is an illusion but that which 'sees' the illusion is not an illusion.
The illusion, the light show, cannot appear without a seer. The seer is primary.
Without a knower can any 'thing' be known?
