- Ways this reality tricks a fools us. Drama performed before our eyes so convincing we can believe lies to be the truth. Something that is not what it appears to be. Our own senses tell us things are real and solid but when challenged, we find it is not so. Our default interpretations lie to us and we can react with blame and anger at things that are not really there. It is part of our task in evolving our consciousness to learn to recognize the ways we are tricking ourselves. To remember that we are in a constant state of misperception rather than forgetting that truth. If you were to isolate your imagination from the rest of your time experience, would it be a world of illusion? Are your dreams played out in a world of illusion? If so, what of your dreams are still real upon waking?
