The nature of illusion II

 

Thoughts may say several things about the nature of illusion….

Images and thoughts held as true creates an illusion, an appearance of something being real and “out there” in the world while something else is more true.

This functions and operates in specific areas of my life, and in specific situations, and this can be recognized in an increasingly finely grained way.

It comes from pure innocence.

It comes from a devotion to what appears as a me. It comes from pure love.

All of this, as is, is awakeness, presence, love.

An image or thought taken as true (the nature of illusion), is awakeness, presence, love (the nature of reality).

It can be helpful to notice how all of this plays itself out when this is not recognized, and how it plays itself out when it is recognized to some extent, and realized to some extent.

The recognition and realization of this is ongoing, and (apparently) free of a goal or end point.

(A thought may say that) the nature of illusion has a few different layers…..

It’s the layer of images and thoughts held as true, creating an illusion.

It’s how this functions and operates in specific areas of my life, and in specific situations. This can be recognized in an increasingly finely grained way.

It’s the pure innocence behind it.

It’s the pure love behind it. It’s devotion to what appears as a me.

It’s all of this as is, as awakeness, presence, love.

It’s how an image or thought taken as true (the nature of illusion), is awakeness, presence, love (the nature of reality).

It’s how this all plays itself out when this is not recognized, and how it plays itself out when it is recognized to some extent, and realized to some extent

It’s the ongoing recognition and realization of this and more, free from a goal or end point.
