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.

Life is Hard Because Virtue is Dead
Since antiquity, great individuals such as Jesus, Muhammad, Socrates, Pythagoras, Epictetus, and Benjamin Franklin, advised their followers to be virtuous. According to them, being virtuous makes life easier or better.
I used to doubt this idea about virtue. However, after observing life in the modern society, I discovered that modern life is hard because people are unvirtuous. I realized that life could have been so wonderful if everyone embraced virtue by adopting qualities such as gentleness, self-discipline, courage, wisdom, kindness, perseverance, patience, love, contentment, and benevolence.
For instance, no one could be poor if we were all loving because we could have committed ourselves to helping each other. Politicians and capitalists could have avoided taking more than enough, and they could have given part of their wealth or profits to the poor.
N/B – The world has enough resources for everyone. Things only appear scarce because some individuals took more than enough. They are too selfish to share, and they don’t care about the poor. In other words, they are unvirtuous.
Anyway, there could be no wars if people embraced the virtue of contentment. Throughout history, many wars occurred because of greed. Many people were killed because some countries wanted more than enough, and they used war to force other nations to surrender their resources to them.
Other than that, jealousy, hatred, and malice could never exist if we all embraced the virtue of benevolence: we could have been happy for other people’s success and we could have helped our relatives, friends, and neighbors build success instead of trying to pull them down.
In addition, people could never be stressed about the future if we all embraced the virtue of courage because it could have made us embrace change/uncertainty.
In summary, life would be so easy and sweet if everybody embraced virtue. We could have created heaven on earth. Suffering would end and life would stop appearing hard because we would have been willing to help each other overcome problems. Mental complications such as depression and anxiety would never exist because virtue eradicates factors such as competition, the need to appear better than others, the need to compare ourselves with others, and worrying about what other people think.
We could have seen the beauty of life, and for this reason, we could have spent most of our time praising the Creator for bringing us into an amazing world.
Therefore, life is not hard folks. We are making it hard by ignoring virtue, which is the key to an easy life.
Lastly, never curse your existence because you think life is hard. Instead, be thankful for life and embrace virtue because even if it will not make life easier for everyone, it will make your life easier. You’ll create a heaven for you and those around you.

Is Dreaming Meaningless? Taking a Deeper Look into Dreams
For years, mainstream science has lied to us about dreams by informing us that dreams are meaningless. For this reason, most of us never try interpreting our dreams to find their deeper meaning.
I used to believe this scientific viewpoint of dreams. However, I doubted it after deeply analyzing my dreams.
While analyzing my dreams, I noticed that my dreams felt so real that sometimes I couldn’t know that I was dreaming. Besides, I realized that some of my dreams were prophetic because sometimes I dreamt about a situation that I would later experience in real life. As well, I noticed that I had bad dreams when stressed, and good dreams when I was happy with my life.
These realizations enlightened me that dreams are not meaningless as scientists claim because nothing meaningless can neither be prophetic nor can it have the ability to reflect emotions. Furthermore, feeling as if I was experiencing a real experience while dreaming encouraged me to believe that dreams had an importance that most of us don’t know.
I thus decided to study dreaming deeply, and I realized that many ancient people believed dreams were powerful. Most cultures believed dreams connect us to a spiritual reality, and therefore, we are always in the spiritual realm when we dream.
At the same time, some ancient cultures, e.g. the Egyptian and Mexican cultures, believed dreams provide us with coded messages from powerful spiritual entities. These cultures took dreams so seriously that they established schools specialized in dream interpretation.
Besides ancient cultures, I discovered that modern religions believe dreams are meaningful. For instance, Christian leaders preach that God speaks to us through dreams, and they use the story of Joseph to prove that dreams are messages from God. Also, Muslims believe dreams are important, and they believe some dreams come from the devil while others come from the ego.
Furthermore, many famous psychologists of the 19th century believed dreams were important. For instance, Carl Jung, a well-known psychologist, believed in the importance of dreams for as he wrote, ‘we have forgotten that God speaks chiefly through dreams and visions.’
In addition, he also believed that ‘dreams are a little hidden door in the innermost and most secret recesses of the soul, opening into that cosmic night which was psyche long before there was any ego-consciousness, and which will remain psyche no matter how far our ego-consciousness extends.’
Having said that, does it make sense that dreams are meaningless as mainstream scientists claim? Did ancient cultures, modern religions and psychologists guess the importance of dreams, or did they notice that dreams were important after studying them?
Anyway, I believe dreams are important, and the Illuminati, through mainstream science, deceived us about dreams because it didn’t want us to gain spiritual insights – from dreams – that can lead to a spiritual awakening.
The Illuminati usually strives to make everything meaningless since it doesn’t want us to ponder the magical mysteries of the universe that would lead to spiritual and mental growth. Therefore, one way to impede spiritual growth was to lie to us about dreams through mainstream science.
The good thing is that we are now awakening to the truth, and we’ll study and meditate on dreams until we understand the spiritual secrets within them that will help us awaken to our true spiritual nature, know the infinite possibilities of the physical world, and rise above the corrupt system of the Illuminati.
