"Tell us another thing!", you’ll probably answer, because you’ve heard it all before no doubt. But how do you experience this illusion? Do you take the stance that illusion isn’t the real thing, and therefor not worth the trouble of actively engaging in it? Kinda sounds like the Merlin quote we had earlier in the lightbox this afternoon: "If I can’t use magic, I might as well die." When in fact we use magic all the while, because how far does the Matrix really go? is it just a part of this world, this galaxy, or eventyually all of it?
Do we just keep denying illusion after illusion, calling it mere reality, in search of the ultimate experience? Why not simply enjoy the illusion while we’re here, knowing we’re the masters of it and can make it just as positive as we darn well please? Sure, lots of it is even more illusory than the normal reality, but in the end it all boils down to this: we can call them good or bad illusions, but what we are actually saying is that some illusions are preferable, and some are not. Abraham-Hicks just now gave a perfect example of how ‘bad’ illusions are nothing more than the lack of good illusions: a serial rapist does not do these horrendous acts because he likes to, but because it feels better than having to live with the illusion he created by not choosing for his destined purpose.
Basically, he succumbed to fighting off the non-preferable illusions, instead of wholeheartedly choosing the one ultimate destination that is preferable, for instance because of that well-known but very damaging catch-phrase that says that "When something sounds too good to be true, it usually is!". Even I, who long ago inverted that claim into "When something sounds too good to be true, it can only be true", still get sidetracked by the numerous variations of these self-destructive spells we weave to keep us from getting into the Vortex (to use Abraham-Hicks terminology). Call it what you want, Zone, Vortex, Nirvana or Heaven, we all Know how it feels. But not all of us feel it all of the time….
My vortex (or vibrational escrow, as Abraham says) has finally taken the form where I can unequivocally recognize it as such. It used to be just loose ideas that felt nice, childhood dreams, that had no real leverage at becoming truth. Over time though, with passing experiences, these distinct ideas formed webs of synchronicity inside my mind, becoming much more of a plan than a loose collection of nice ideas. The fact I can pretty much designate how my ideal life (or at least the second half of it) is going to look, does of course not automatically mean it has to come true in just that way. Even wilder, I Know that it probably won’t. But I also Know that no matter what else happens, I will enjoy it immensely more if I just keep working towards that dream image, that is emerging ever more solidly.
And knowing that, the haste of getting there is almost completely diminished. I can even enjoy the tight budget that still signifies the end of the month past the end of my money….. It’s all just illusion anyway.
Love your Illusions,
