Some spiritual disciplines teach that the reality we experience through our five senses is an illusion. The reality we experience through our senses is real enough. However, the subtle levels of experience are just as real. The Divine Energy is real. Our connection to all things is real.
The biggest illusion is that we firmly believe that we are who we think we are.
Our experience of the subtle levels, and peace, freedom and love, can be just as vivid as our experiences in ordinary consciousness. It cannot be accurately described, thought about or imagined. In experience, we can know these things. All that we need to do is have the intention, utilize the tools for self discovery that we have (until those tools are no longer necessary) and surrender to present awareness without judgment.
Let's be aware of a universe beyond our physical senses.
