For years, many philosophers and spiritualists have revealed that we live in an illusion. I agree with this ideology. However, I believe this illusion is founded by the following smaller illusions which prevent us from reaching spiritual maturity and living a happy life.
1. The Illusion of Expectation
We always think that everybody must be the way we expect them to be, and we hate it when people don’t behave as we want. We fail to realize that we’ll live peacefully with other folks when we learn to embrace their flaws.
2. The Illusion of Attachment
The illusion of attachment occurs when we think that we are one with our material wealth. It also occurs when we trust that our skills, academic qualifications, and achievements define us. This illusion leads to the rise of the ego. The ego does not listen to new ideas, it thinks it’s right and everybody is wrong. Eliminate the ego by dropping the illusion of attachment.
3. The Illusion of Immortality
Today, it never occurs to us that we are mortal beings as our lives are not guaranteed. This illusion of immortality prevents us from treasuring every moment of life because it makes us forget that life is short and death can occur at any moment.
4. The Illusion of Achievement
Most of us have the illusion of achievement. We believe that there will be a day when we will become blissful or worry-free because we will not have problems in our lives.
However, no matter how much wealth you attain, you will still face problems. Even prayer does not keep problems away. Instead, it guides us through them.
Many people become successful and commit suicide because they had the illusion of achievement. They thought that having wealth will remove all their problems, but to their surprise, they found out that they had more problems to solve after being successful. Therefore, drop the illusion of achievement and realize that life is a series of tests which you have the ability to overcome.
5. The Illusion of Disunion
The biggest illusion is that of disunion. We think that we are separate from God and his creation. We fail to realize that the creation itself is God.
There is no separation between God and the creation. God manifests himself through his creation. Therefore, we are all one with God and other men. You cannot live in this world alone. You need people. We feel sad when people lose their loved ones because we also feel the pain, and this is because we are one.
Furthermore, we are one with The Creator because life itself is God, and without God, we cannot live. Therefore, drop the illusion of disunion by realizing that God is not far away. Instead, he is near you, he is in you and you in him.
Have a good day.

The Top Five Harsh Truths You Must Know About Organized Religion
‘Religion is regarded by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful.’ -Seneca
An organized religion is any religion with formally established beliefs and practices. Although organized religion is helpful, there are many harsh truths you must know about it.
Here are some of them.
1.Organized Religion is man-made
All organized religions were founded on the ideas of men who achieved higher states of consciousness. For instance, Christianity was founded on the ideas of Jesus, while Buddhism was founded on the ideas of Siddhartha Gautama, mainly known as Buddha.
2.Organized Religion is a Bully
Religion demands us to believe everything people such as Jesus, Mohammad, or Abraham taught without questioning. It wants us to blindly accept everything the Bible, Quran, and other ‘Sacred Books’ teach without questioning their validity. In the medieval age, religious leaders murdered or forced into exile the individuals who doubted the teachings of these ‘Sacred Books.’
3.The Ancient Elite Used Religion to Control the Masses
The ancient ruling classes informed people that they were God-chosen, and therefore, it was blasphemous to disrespect them. For this reason, it became easy for them to control people because the masses feared God, and they didn’t want to disrespect ‘him’ and end up in hell. Besides this, the ancient ruling classes used organized religion to bring like-minded people together and control them.
4.Organized Religion emanated from Pagan Religions
Stories almost similar to the miraculous birth of Jesus are found in ancient Pagan religions. As well, the story of Noah is present in the Sumerian religion, which was founded thousands of years before Christianity. Besides, many scholars have discovered that Pre-Islamic Arabians – who were Pagans – used the word ‘Allah’ to refer to their god.
5.Organized Religion has Caused Many Wars
In 1096 to 1291, several religious wars between Muslims and Christians occurred because both Muslims and Christians wanted to control particular holy sites. As well, during the introduction of Buddhism in the Japanese Kingdom in 552, military conflicts occurred after people resisted the spread of Buddhism. On top of that, many ancient Kings used the phrases, ‘Holy War’ and ‘Just War’ to encourage people to fight against enemy-kingdoms.
6.Religion has failed us
The main purpose of religion is to enable its followers to attain oneness with Infinite Intelligence. Organized religions have thus failed us because our religious leaders seldom teach us about attaining oneness with the Creator. Instead, they focus on teaching about sin and paradise.
Furthermore, organized religion has failed us because there are high levels of crime, hate, violence, and many other unrighteous behaviors despite the increase in the number of modern religious organizations.

How the Illuminati/Elite Tricked You into Buying Useless Things
Since the beginning of industrialization, the Illuminati/Elite owned most of the world’s largest corporations and they strived to make the masses buy lots of stuff from them. They worked on devising methods of attracting the masses to their companies, and they discovered effective methods in the 20th century.
For instance, they discovered the power of associating their products with famous individuals. They used celebrities to advertise their products and people started buying products not because they needed them, but because they wanted to be seen with them.
The elite then popularized the idea that certain products raised an individual’s status hence resulting in several people buying them even when they didn’t need them. People started buying diamond watches, Gucci shoes, and Louis Vuitton bags because they believed these products would enable them to attain a higher social position than their friends and neighbors.
The Illuminati then introduced fashion by popularizing the idea that the most important individuals in the society were those who bought fashionable products. They then used celebrities to popularize particular fashions during particular periods. As well, they ensured the fashionable products got outdated quickly so that people regularly disposed them of – even when they were still useful – to purchase more fashionable goods.
These strategies resulted in several people becoming obsessed with the idea that their material possessions determined their social status, and for this reason, they kept buying useless things just to attain a higher social status. Moreover, many people started preferring non-durable products over durable ones just because they were fashionable, and they kept buying products to keep up with the latest trend.
The elite’s strategy is still working today because most of us still purchase useless products to boost our social status. For instance, although we need a 32-inch TV set, we buy a 70-inch TV set because we want to align with the latest fashion and boost our social status. We buy expensive and useless products despite being aware of the presence of cheap products that perform the same functions as the expensive ones. We then resale the expensive products at a low price so that we buy more fashionable products and gain a higher social status.
Although we think we are boosting our social status with these things, we are mainly wasting our money and filling the pockets of the elite, who seldom care about the stuff they sell to us. The elite mostly care about awakening their psychic powers and abilities. Also, they usually spend their money on uncovering hidden esoteric teachings and artifacts that enlighten them about our true origin.
Having said that, I think it’s time we stopped buying some products just because we want to boost our social status. We must spend our money on personal development, traveling, and having fun with the people we love, instead of wasting it on useless stuff.
Thanks for Reading. May you be enlightened forever.
