    Yes! But what is real? What is illusion? What is expectation? And how can we tell the difference? Because we stand in the presence of each other, and with our senses we see, hear, touch, smell and taste of each other, does that make us real? How many times have we been tricked by our senses? Apparently, we know that all matter is mostly empty space, or is it? Just because we can’t see something, does that mean something in that space doesn’t exist? How many times have we believed something to be, only to discover later its inaccuracy? When we see someone smiling at us, can we assume the person wearing that smile is content in happiness? I know what Byron Katie would say, or do I? When we experience love, true love, how do we know? Is true love a physical phenomenon that we can interpret with our senses? When love emanates from us, or onto us, how do we know? Just because we perceive an act of love, does our perception make it an act of love? The questions abound almost infinitively, and two or more could argue them likewise, and then where does that leave us? Did we evolve from nothingness, and somehow come to possess in and of ourselves the ability to become? Were we dumped here and abandoned to find our own way? Do we live a relatively limited expanse of life to evolve a conscious awareness of ourselves and this life for a brief stint of peace and happiness and then to catapult on to some after life? I don’t know, definitively, the answer to any of these questions, but I’ll tell you what I believe. I believe in the living word of Jesus; not the aging deceased words that lament from the scriptures of our fore fathers (not that they don’t originate from the divine, but they lack the context of the time they were presented); the living word that teaches me to grow my faith and to love my neighbor as I love myself. I believe as Jesus declares, “lift a rock, and I am there”, that he is present in all our lives, working in us and thru us, to affect our growth, if we choose to grow in the way that draws us into His kingdom. And as Eckhart Tolle may have alluded to, He is the living word that dwells in the now. Jesus says “put your faith in me…, I am the way, the truth, the light and the life”, and “learn the meaning of the creation that surrounds you and you will perceive the mysteries hidden from you”. Grow! Grow your understanding of His love. Grow faith, acceptance, forgiveness, sympathy, and empathy, and you grow love. His love is real, and his living word is real, and His yoke is true happiness. This world and the guises we concoct are the illusions and they are what fester expectation. Love and peace to you, brother, and to all, and in it you will grow!

    If you can, define the reality for everty individual that exist in the whole world, define what is an illusion for you with respect to every one, and say what an expectation it is according to your own perception.

    Amen to that
