WE SUPPRESS OUR POTENTIAL WHEN IN AN ILLUSION.
So, what’s the result of living in an illusion? Sadly, this is the situation for so many of us! When trapped in an illusion, we don’t realize how limiting the illusion really is. We might feel quite comfortable there, but we are not truly whole and at peace.
When living in an illusion, we avoid facing reality. We are not living as our true self. We are not deeply content or fulfilled. We miss out on lasting happiness & true joy! We don’t pursue our passion & purpose in life. We deny ourselves our full potential. We miss out! What a pity.
LIVING THE ILLUSION CAN BECOME OUR DEFAULT.
So, why don’t we just break free from this illusion? Why don’t we instead choose to be fully awake & aware? Why don’t we just choose to live in present-moment reality? That is our best state of consciousness.
The main reason is that we have become so accustomed to living in an illusion. These sub-optimal states have become our normal default position. Over time, we have forgotten how to access our true natural state of our being! We usually bypass our most optimal mental state.
WHY DO WE CHOOSE ILLUSION OVER REALITY?
Another reason for avoiding true reality is that at first, it seems so bland & neutral. It’s certainly not as alluring as the Las Vegas-like experience of the materialistic world! It’s also not as dreamy as living in a fantasy world, which feels more like Disneyland. And it’s certainly not as edgy & clever as the realm of mental intellect.
