‘Life is an illusion’ – Buddha

Reality in Buddhism is called dharma (Sanskrit). The problem is that so much of reality is driven by fear. “Life is an illusion a dream; a bubble; a shadow… Nothing is permanent. Nothing is worthy of anger or dispute. Nothing…” ~ The Buddha. Every choice we make in life has a consequence. Doahsim tells us that everything is serving our path of consciousness, we are  co creating everything in what’s in us and around us. What we say to someone, what we say to ourselves has a consequence. It’s Newtons third law of action and reaction. Newton’s third law is: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. The statement means that in every interaction, there is a pair of forces acting on the two interacting objects. The size of the forces on the first object equals the size of the force on the second object. These are the laws that govern our life.

With the equal rising of politics and illness, how do we respond with our relationships with ourselves (self -care) and others. Carl Jung the Swiss psychiatrist would say that the government reflects the shadow of the people.  This is where the power of wisdom comes in. Understanding that when we observe a spectacle or a drama, that we don’t get involved emotionally. We learn to walk away and put those emotions in a box and then talk about it. This is called discernment.  Discernment is defined as the ability to notice the fine-point details, the ability to judge something well or the ability to understand and comprehend something. Noticing the distinctive details in a painting and understanding what makes art good and bad is an example of discernment. Most experiences are just products of our perception. For example : “I’ve decided to be angry and attached to something I’ve pereciceived. I must not get caught up in the spectacle, its a temporary illusion as Buddha said. I am simply reacting to a fear, there is no truth here> I’m attaching to a fear and if I chose to do this I will lose my power”.

There is so much hysteria, illusion, anger and delusion . It’s takes so much discernment to step back in life  and see what is really happening. Keep all your energy and create a brand new path for yourself. We simply cannot afford to listen to all  fear and panic as it  may not have our best interest at heart. For example I mean by this: ” This is your last chance to buy this house at this price. If you don’t start your business now , it will never work.  Think wisely , “is what I am listening to , reading or seeing helping my situation . Is it putting me more is a sympathetic state , fight or flight or is its helping me to get more parasympathetic. Buddha said replace toe thoughts with wisdom, common sense and clear judgment . You have attached to something you ve perceived as a temporary illusion. > if I attached to this fear I will simply co-create more anger, hysteria and pain.What am I hearing? What am I listening to? What is motivating me to make the decisions I’m making right now? Clear out thoughts that are being driven by fear and replace them with wisdom. And replace them with what your own inner self is telling you about common sense and clear judgement, at a time when that is the safest light within you.

What are you doing this for? This will never work, navigate your life. Remember outr thoughts, actions and reactions can either be driven by dear or wisdom.
