A delusion is brought about by a desire – a man who believes that a woman loves him because he wants her, while she finds him totally undesirable would be said, by that woman, to be suffering a delusion.
If, what happens occasionally, which is the woman changes her mind about him, to the point that she “falls in love” with him, could it be said that the delusion has become a desire that “miraculously” became a reality?
The above romantic scenario all began with an illusion the man had of the woman; in his eyes she was beautiful.
Could the truth of the matter be encapsulated in one simple term, “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” and perhaps, therefore, beauty (and truth) can and should always be held under suspicion of being nothing more than an illusion?
All the above which involves sensory perception, time, timing and belief is a product of 3rd dimensional claptrap described as “physical reality,” when it is merely a matter of perception and perspective. Further obfuscation of the “facts” comes about by the words used to describe it.
What you or I believe is based on our individual perceptions and desires; both of which may or may not come into being as “real.”
If it could be safe to say that just because somebody says, “I know it’s true because I saw it with my own eyes” might well be questionable, on the other side of the question, could it also be true that somebody saying, “I know it’s true because I feel it” might really be the truth?
While the first begins as an illusion, it may well become a delusion because the person, who sees, wants to believe and the second was always true, but we don’t trust the word, “feel.”
All the foregoing could be seen as over-complicating and, therefore, you can rest in your own illusions no matter how simple.
Is there a reality beyond what you currently believe? Of course and ALWAYS! How can you discover this “other reality?” Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with handbook in the subject line.

With just the flick of my finger, accompanied by the most sonorous tone I could muster, saying: “Let there be light and there was light” – and damned if there wasn’t light immediately – corresponding to the exact timing of my finger-flicking (on the light switch).
While I’m obviously doing a light version, pun intended, of the series of God created stuff, cited in the Bible following “in the Beginning,” I AM not being intentionally sacrilegious, all though I do recognize the potential for it to be taken that way.
Even as I AM seeing as true, what my publisher chides me about which are the objections to much of what I write that are all running around amok in and through my mind, “which aren’t real objections,” he has pointed out more than once, wisely; and just recently, admonishing me related to some article I had written with a bunch of unnecessary apologetics I had created to take issue with all the imagined objections.
I could and do say that the objections are, more often than not, quite real and I AM “picking them up from the ether” and yet, one way of looking at what he says is that I AM giving life to them, instead of simply stating whatever it is that I AM in me is saying.
He is correct and I AM knows better, so why do I continue to do it? The simple answer to that question, without apology, is an overactive conscious part of the mind, insisting upon having its own way, even though I AM, in both Ryan and me says, “Knock it off.”
One point that could be made about what I have transcribed so far, is that I was and I AM in the beginning as a particle of I AM and have been given the power and authority to say before there was ever a “me” – I AM. What I AM in me is also saying is so are you.
We don’t have to recreate light or anything else, it is already done and it is high time we moved on to correct that thing which I AM in US has revealed needs to be corrected.
Now I begin to understand Mohandas Gandhi’s, “We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him; this is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
That quote is much longer than the one on posters attributed to my friend which says, “Be the change you want to see in the world,” but doesn’t give a clue as to how. In the longer “correct” version I see the way out of the muck I have unwittingly created.
The first thing I need to straighten out in me is the proclivity to allow the conscious, thinking part of the mind of this body I occupy to control what I do and say, when the I AM, Creator of the universe, lives within and is willing to take over …in other words there are no excuses for not making the necessary changes in me now and saying I’m just a human is one of the first (excuses) in me that is going.

Surely, there must be an old saying that the only way to get where you want to go is to know where you’re going. If we want to give our lives a whole lot of meaning, we need to know the reason we came here.
If you spend a few moments analyzing the foregoing paragraph without first taking apart the word and collapsing in laughter, as I just did; I mean, think about it: ANAL- what part of the anatomy is the focal point of all analysis?
We talk quite a bit about how the conscious part of the mind continually gets in the way of creativity, is it any wonder? Proper analysis requires the use of the conscious part of the mind. So that’s what is meant by “being anal!”
Back to looking at the opening paragraph, it struck me that the words “the reason we came here” presuppose we came from somewhere else. If that’s true then from where did I come?
It is interesting, to me at least, that the English word “salvation” is translated from a Greek word that means joined together again; and a case can easily be made (this from a Greek business owner in South San Francisco) that the word ALSO means that the repair is completed. Re-paired – “joined together again,” with what or whom?
Salvation, therefore, means, “as you were in the beginning,” NOT AT birth that’s the beginning we’ve been programmed to accept and keeps us trapped in thinking these human bodies we occupy are all there is to LIFE.
“Well, if that’s all there is, my friend, then let’s keep dancing, bring on the booze” (or to whatever else you might be addicted, such as dope, food, work, sex, religion, shopping, being a victim of whatever – any and all, which are human solutions to the problems and pain of living a life without REAL meaning.
What if your “beginning” was being an integral part of “in the beginning, God created . . .” (?) In other words a Godicle or particle of the Elohiym-US, (“Let Us create) I AM.
