You ever think that the illusion might actually have a purpose as well?

It has a purpose, to keep us from getting anything.
It does not mean that some God or whatever is causing that illusion.
It could well be a few humans with some much power that they play god. 🙄

I was curious to see what you meant by illusion. You know though we down her on the bottom of that money totem pole 😉 we create our own illusions as well. All of life is pretty much of an illusion. How many people buy into the upper echelons created illusion and live in it? Many, many people do it all the time. And so with people support the way we set up life on this blue ball of ours.

Personally I find there is nothing but illusions around us and it is all about peeling through the different illusions that take us down the path of self discovery.

Truth is stranger than fiction, because fiction has to make sense.

The trick is getting yourself "out of the illusion mode" to self discover anything. Too many are living within the illusion and never figure it out, trapped in playing the game with everyone they contact. They hide behind an image or facade, a pretend role, false sence of importance, or just material things that never are enough. Money, power, 5 minutes of fame! Many actually get trapped into the corporate world of illusion for a lifetime, occupational illusions none of us escape since we all have to work. The illusion of security, by selling yourself short in ability and living life in a security blanket of a safe job. WE all do that one. The real big one in the illusion department has to be the hierarcy of the local churchs, and the politics within it. The illusion of love and caring, when it is actully a popularity ladder of internal backstabbing, and the status of reaching the illusions of the upper levels of the church. When you are low on that ladder, you always feel the illusion of being much higher up that ladder, to those outside the church.

Everyplace we turn, we are sold on some illusion, from toothpaste to cars, food we eat, and what should be regarded as beauty. The illusion of saving in a 401K plan for security, hasn't looked to great lately thats for sure.

Think of nothing. Soon you'll see the gossamer drapes for what they are and they'll blow open....and then you'll see...don't ever let them distract you. The illusions are only gossamer drapes; the gossamer of youth's dreams...
