“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.” ~ Albert Einstein

We are so conditioned to routine and habit, swimming in the safety cocoon of expectations and life situations which we are all equipped to handle within the conscious frame of our being.

What if I were to say that this is an illusion? Well, so many writers who came before me have said that, and so many who will come after me, would say that too. Because, as one tries to think deeper, and deeper, and tries to tap into these subconscious realms of energy dimensions within ourselves, we envision these glimmers of “something” which is so far from our own perceived understanding of life, Universe, and the Nature of things.

What you are reading on your computer or mobile phone or tablet is an article written by me. But is that the reality as you think it to be? It is more than that. This is a manifestation of my feelings, which were triggered by recent experiences. These thoughts germinated, when I was made to feel in certain ways, which was not regular, which was not the norm, and which made my mind to take a tangent and explore certain neural pathways which have never been traversed before, and voilà, here are my thoughts — in the form of an article. So, reality is not contained to an article of about thousand words. Reality is perhaps those millions of neurons being fired for the first time in a specific neural pathway.

    I’ll tell you what. If this is all an illusion i still have to get up Monday morning and trudge off to my illusory job and slog my guts out for some illusory money in order to provide for my illusory lifestyle.

    So all in all nothing much would change knowing that none of it is real.

    …What is more real, our perception, or our conception? Is the daily world we perceive to be a part of, just a conception each of us has created for himself? Maybe. Do we really share common experience? If we trust our perceptions, can we ever be sure that anybody else can trust them…we’re all coming from a different angle, no matter how deeply we agree.
    …Conception, on the other hand, comes to us in another form…an ethereal form…and i believe that one’s own spiritual focus is most important to the character of the conception. There is a spiritual connection to the conception of ideas…good or bad.

    We can be led to immortality, or we can be led to perdition…don’t be deceived.
