The big question is, are we in fact improving & reflecting good will onto the world? As spiritually aware people yes most definitely, living & thinking positively would have to be helping because we feel better for it so it must be helping, this is called spiritual manifestation, the next big question is why is the world seemingly & noticeably getting worse? This is a complicated question to ask & I will do my best to answer this question as follow.
I thought I would insert part of a reply I sent to an atheist internet friend of mine relating to illusions & delusions which believe it or not I believe has everything to do with what is going on in the world today. The funny thing is this atheist is saying people who have faith are living in a delusional world but these same people who he is referring to also believe that this reality is an illusion!!!!
I will show you how different I think: The world despite all this good will & spiritual harmony is getting noticeably worse but it shouldn’t because we have all these spiritually aware people around who are trying to rid themselves of this horrid illusion/ego so it should be improving. There are no illusions or opposing realities to escape it just is & everything has always been, there are no illusions to escape or that we think we are entrapped in, the real illusion is thinking everything is an illusion in the first place & that we are entrapped & by thinking this we are actually helping to manifest what we have in the world today. What’s happening with spiritually aware people is they are feeling better within themselves as individuals or in small groups but they are actually making things worse because we think we have something to run away from but we don’t, that is the illusion. If we think it’s bad like the ego for instance it will be bad & this imagining reflects on the rest of the world even if we ourselves are feeling better, self-serving has never been good for the common good of all man!!!
The following is an interesting link but not for you Paul as it’s all delusional of course, this has a familiar ring to what spiritually aware people think of this reality doesn’t it Paul, you accuse others of being delusional & living in a delusional world & certain spiritually aware think that everything is an illusion, the similarities are amusing. The pot calling the kettle black again of course!!!
Love you Paul as I love myself at any given time!!
We are inadvertently manifesting what we are trying to rid ourselves of like the ego for instance, we ourselves as individual spiritually aware people might have rid ourselves of the ego but it’s obvious it hasn’t helped the rest of humanity, we should have by now seen some sort of improvement but we are seeing quite the opposite. Seeing the ego & this reality for starters as being the enemy has inadvertently added to this because any disdain adds to the negatives of this reality, it’s like we are thinking more positively but where not really. You could call this the real illusion; this brings up the question of illusions.
Why are we calling this reality an illusion? This comes from the creative consciousness’s or our inner self’s imagination so it has to be an illusion that we are entrapped in & need to obviously escape from, this is 3rd dimensional thinking which we need to grow out of, it’s this 3rd dimensional thinking we need to rid ourselves of not a supposed reality of illusions. So why don’t I think this reality is an illusion? Simple, anything of consciousness which everything is of is real in one way or another, it’s still a part of consciousness plus there is no start or finish because again this is 3rd dimensional thinking. If we think there is an illusion there must also be a reality like there is a wrong or right which of course we really know there isn’t accept in certain dimensions like this one. I believe everything didn’t come from something it already was & has always been which means there was no starting point & that everything that we could imagine ourselves has always been. This of course means nothing was actually created from a creator however, this is the paradox, it was. The consciousness’s knowing has always been there however the experiences of such knowing haven’t & this is where we are being confused in my mind.
The consciousness’s knowing or awareness has always been there which we are calling reality, our true selves however the experiences that we are experiencing from this awareness we are calling an illusion that we presume we are trapped in. There is absolutely no entrapment or illusions in reference to this reality, all we are doing is experiencing this awareness first hand which we as a collective species dictate to how it is going to go. For starters, how about using the ego more positively instead of negatively, this would on its’ own change the world quite dramatically without showing distain which of course inadvertently manifests a more negative reality. We are indeed our own destiny in more ways than one!!
Life isn’t what it seems only what we presume it is which doesn’t make it an illusion just a different reality!!
