IT'S ALL SATIRE!

That's the answer, Grasshopper.....But now you must figure out the question.

Aw Sensei...Is there ever an end?

When you find that which is the beginning only then will you find.....
THE END!

signed.... . . . . . . .

Peace! Cool

It may seem that the illusion is having an illusion... but that is the illusion. Shocked

An illusion cannot 'have' anything (even an illusion)... it is the illusion. It can no more 'have an illusion', than a character in a dream can have a dream. Surprised

Consciousness is not deluded by the illusion. Just as Consciousness is not confused by confusion.

As it arises, Consciousness knows confusion 'as confusion', and not as some other 'perception' (eg 'anger').

That 'confusion' appears when there really is no confusion... is the illusion. For, though Consciousness knows 'confusion', Consciousness is not thereby confused.

Bodiless, Consciousness knows what it feels like to have a body. Who but Consciousness knows this?

Knowing what it feels like, and knowing the meaning of the thoughts that arise, does not mean that Consciousness is deceived by the feelings and thoughts into believing it is other than it is... any more than a reader who knows the meaning of the words in a book (ie who experiences the story) is deceived into believing that the story in the book is other than a story in a book, or that they are other than they are.

The reader simply knows the story.

Indeed there is only one reader... Consciousness. And Consciousness is no more deceived by the story told via all the senses and the knowing, than it is by the words in a book.

Consciousness simply 'knows' the story as the story that it is, from the perspective of each character in the story: all sights and sounds and feelings and tastes and smells and meaning that comprise 'the story of me'... whichever 'me' is experienced 'this moment'.

Perhaps a character in the story of 'life' thinks' "I am deluded" or "I am confused". One alone experiences this thought and knows exactly what it means from the perspective of the character... that is all.

There really is no character (no 'me')... just thoughts, feelings and other sensations and meaning that make up the experience of the story as known within Consciousness.

No one is deluded and no one is confused.

Confused?

Not really Cool Confused

Love
