No Two Fantasies are the Same
Where does lying begin in human experience? Where did you learn to lie? We all learn to lie from when we are babies. We are domesticated, conditioned, enculturated. Our parents, our siblings, our friends, the world around us offers us beliefs and stories, and we accept these beliefs blindly because everybody else agrees with them.
Therefore, we believe they are true like everyone else believes they are true. But they’re just words and symbols and beliefs and stories that we take on and believe for ourselves. We believe that we’re not good enough. We believe that we’re fat, thin, ugly, stupid. We believe that we’re separate and different. This way is better than that way. This religion is better than that religion.
This country is better than that country. And we create this illusory identity based on these illusory beliefs and stories. It’s called the ego-driven mind. With our beliefs and stories, as magicians, we create our tricks—our fantasy about life. Yes, our tricks are our beliefs and stories and with them we create a virtual reality. A virtual reality isn’t a true reality. But we impose our virtual reality upon true reality.
So each of us lives within a fantasy, and no two fantasies are the same. We may think we have agreement in our beliefs and stories, but each of us uniquely flavors our reality with our magic. For example, I am speaking and you are listening. What each of you hears is different from the person next to you because you interpret it based on your database, your story, your virtual reality. What I am saying, I am expressing within my reality.
It is what it is for me, and I am not in the illusion that what it is for me is the same for you because the moment it leaves me and goes to you, it becomes yours, which is completely different than mine. And so it is. Billions and billions of virtual realities exist that have nothing to do with true reality— the true reality of here and now as one life, one consciousness.
