Unmask Your Illusions
“Our fears are more numerous than our dangers, and we suffer more in our imagination than in reality.” – Seneca.
As a child, I enjoyed watching the moon racing away on a cloudy night. It was indeed a mystery that despite the speed the moon never moved. Honestly, this motion without movement awed and left me returning every night to conduct my moon-gazing.
It took my father’s repeated tutelage to realise it was the clouds moving, not the moon. He altered my consciousness from a state of awed mystery to that of logical reality.
How often have you held a belief you considered faultless, only much later to realise you were dead wrong?
How long have you laboured under the illusion that that friend or family, colleague or neighbour, doesn’t wish you well?
Truth is that when you allow the artificial to assume the status of the believable, the illusion takes the form of logical reality, and that becomes your experience.
So, tread carefully.
